Gay bishop in the eye of a lie

Nevermind that gay bishop Vickie Gene Robinson meets hardly any of the qualifications for a biblical bishop as set forth in 1 Timothy 3:2-7:

“A bishop must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behaviour, hospitable, able to teach, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?); not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. Moreover, he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.”

Much can be said of the gross error Robinson is steeped in, but the best proof comes out of the mouth of Robinson himself.

In a redux segment [May8 segment] on the Today Show with interviewer Matt Lauer, Robinson gorges himself with lies and hypocrisy seemingly without even being aware of it.

First, while comparing himself to Christ and the prophets, Robinson todayshownow claims he has lived under “death threats” while wearing bullet proof vests since he was consecrated by church liberals. This is astonishing, not to mention high drama.  When Lauer asks why Robinson is just now revealing this now Robinson side steps and lies.

Lauer asks Robinson if his reinterpretation of the scriptures is self serving. Although it is, Robinson claims he’s accepting that revisionism because of “scholars”. He fails to mention that the scholars  who concocted this lie are homosexuals who were also reinventing scripture for obvious self serving reasons. The gay christian movement’s crowning achievement is to reimagine scripture to exempt their sin. Imagine a liar using Ananias and Sapphira as justification for lying because they were “misunderstood” or simply afraid to tell the truth because they feared Peter’s “oppressive” leadership.

Since Robinson wont say it, we will. He’s hawking a new book and throwing out the “death threat” info to help push the book. In other words, its the old controversy sells promotions trick.  If we could suggest a new, but more appropriate title for the book it would be “In the eye of a lie”.  Robinson is hawking his book “In the eye of the storm.”

This is the man the president-elect is “consulting” presumably for spiritual guidance.

  1. Sadly, so many people know so little about the Bible that they’ll be taken in by his lies. Yes, he fails the bishop test from virtually every direction!

  2. So …. all the scholars who came up with orthodox interpretations before now using the historio – grammatical approach do not count? Or are they not scholars? Then again, with the hermeneutics that are now being taught in evangelical seminaries, homosexuality will probably find a toehold, a place within evangelicalism within 20 years. I just got through reading a grotesque book by leading professors at Denver Theological Seminary that teach you how to do thesis driven hermeneutics that still meet the standards of evangelical scholarship. It was painful reading, and even more painful was the recognition of how many seminary students are reading this same book.

  3. Job…painful indeed.

    America’s seminaries are producing rotten apples.
    The reasoning, logic and inverted opinion being layered over true biblical interpretation has driven the church miles off course.

    I think the “toehold” is already firmly entrenched. Look at all the mess we report on here from pastors and leaders who say and do some of the most outrageous things possible.
