A Christian YouTuber has gained widespread attention with a video discussing a purported spiritual shift in former Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
“Tucker Carlson Is Changing”
In a video titled “Tucker Carlson Is Changing…,” Colin Miller, the host of YouTube’s “Fight for Truth,” shared his observations. This content piece has rapidly gained traction, accumulating over 1.2 million views.
Tucker Carlson himself attested to a spiritual transformation last month during “The Summit,” an event sponsored by Blaze Media in Des Moines, Iowa.
During the event, Carlson emphasized the importance of interpreting the current political climate from a spiritual perspective. He remarked, “While I’m clinging to the hope that elections still matter, because I really want to believe that because I’m an American in a very fundamental way, and so I believe in the actual mechanics of democracy. Like the people should rule.”
His Deepening Engagement With the Bible
He emphasized, “But leaving aside even elections, I think it’s clearly a pivot point in history, and I don’t think the issues we debate and are in some ways really just distractions are the core issues, at all. There are forces, unseen forces acting on people.”
Colin Miller found Carlson’s remarks particularly significant, stating, “This tells me that he’s starting to get it. He’s starting to understand what this has all been about.”
Carlson’s deepening engagement with the Bible reportedly commenced in February and profoundly impacted him.
He shared, “It’s the most interesting thing I think I’ve ever done. It’s unbelievable. The amount of drama in those books that has been hidden from me as a regular churchgoer in the Episcopal Church.”
“This Is a Big Moment, and I Don’t Want Us To Miss It as Christians”
Carlson also expressed two crucial realizations: first, the idea that God employs imperfect individuals to accomplish greater purposes, and second, that while people possess free will and decision-making abilities, they are not the ultimate architects of history; rather, they are acted upon. This perspective, he noted, resonated with his own life experiences.
Miller expressed genuine enthusiasm regarding the perceived spiritual transformation in Carlson, underscoring the significance of a public figure like Carlson openly discussing his spiritual journey.
Miller’s excitement stemmed from the recognition that “Here we have one of the most famous political figures in the United States talking about the importance of reading your Bible and the truth of God’s sovereignty. It’s incredible. This is a big moment, and I don’t want us to miss it as Christians.”
Miller contended that both political and religious ideals, rooted in scripture, are necessary for a righteous society in the eyes of God.
He Discussed the Theological Implications of the Transgender Movement and Abortion
He talked about how Carlson’s newfound emphasis on the spiritual realm aligns with Carlson’s observations on the unseen spiritual forces that influence the political world.
Furthermore, Carlson offered theological insights during his speech at The Heritage Foundation’s 50th-anniversary gala in Washington, D.C.
He addressed contemporary social issues, including the transgender movement and abortion, and discussed the theological implications of these topics.
Carlson argued that some ideas, such as advocating for child castration or sexually mutilating children, transcend political debates and are deeply rooted in theological considerations.
“God Is in Control”
Miller concluded his analysis by referencing Psalm 115:3, which states, “Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases.” This verse aptly encapsulated the notion that Carlson’s spiritual awakening extends beyond the personal and resonates with a larger cultural moment, wherein societal issues are increasingly being viewed through the lens of faith.
Miller’s interpretation of “God is in control” resonates with him and potentially with a nation searching for understanding and guidance amidst tumultuous times.
