Repent, for the judgment of God is at hand!

There is a level of evil that is building and sweeping across this nation as well as most of the world like never before. In my years as a student of history and world events, I’ve never seen the level of wickedness and perversion as I see taking place currently in our world today. It’s almost as if someone has flipped off the morality switch and all hell has broken loose.

Here are some points to consider:

California is set to become the first State in the union that will require (mandate) every child in the State public school sector to know and learn about same sex relationships, homosexual lifestyles, tolerance/diversity training and, to top it all off, they (students) will be required to learn about homosexual “civil rights” leaders such as Harvey Milk.

Not only has California fought long and hard to make this a political issue, even the Obama Administration is watching this closely, as they to, are designing a program which will bring homosexual diversity training into the classroom to children as young as 5 years of age.

Then, with the recent passage and signing into law of New York becoming the 6th State in the union to adopt gay marriage, the recent lifting of the ban on homosexuals in the military and President Obama himself stating his views of gay marriage is “evolving”, the nation is spinning out of control and perversion is becoming another form of normalcy in the land.

Senators and Congressmen caught in the act of immorality, television preachers caught in love triangles while continuing to make millions off of un-discerning supporters. There is a foul spirit in the air and it’s growing.

Recently, statements by Washington officials and political insiders that suggest the real possibility of civil unrest in this nation is prompting many officials to consider enforcing martial law if things come to a head. It seems our nation is heading toward a point of no return.

From catastrophic weather events where floods, tornados and the past harsh winter where national records for snow and cold temperatures were broken, homes destroyed, lives taken and virtual communities lost forever, all suggest something is happening in our land.

Immorality seems to now be the rule of the day, where open nudity can be seen almost everywhere, where even the push for the sexualization of children seems to be epidemic and the idea of traditional morality is seen as repressive and out of date, we are sacrificing whatever morality we have left on the altar of idolatry.

The world is being shaken. From the economic turmoils that control the economic destiny of people everywhere, to the regulation of restrictions against Christians in democratic nations such as Canada and the UK, where it is now illegal for a preacher to declare the word of God against sin, especially when it comes to homosexuality. Preachers as well as Pastors are being jailed for doing nothing more than proclaiming the truth.

Even in the church today, immorality, false teachings and idol worship is gaining a foothold in many pulpits across America. What was once preached against has now become accepted, and what is now accepted is being preached to those who have ears to listen and hearts to believe. A form of Godliness is all too common today and yet, most believe they are experiencing a revival, yet there is no true power behind it.

It seems as though someone has taken all of the worse case scenarios one could dream up and found a way to make it reality. Even in our civil laws, where justice is promised to the weak and the abused, justice is but an illusion to the highest bidder or the best looking. When a mother, accused of murdering her child can be acquitted by a jury for murdering her own child; who sought the life of night clubs, who waited almost one month before reporting her child missing, as in the case of Casey Anthony, there is a problem with our culture. The Justice system itself has become just that,  just-a-system.

But these events, these occurrences are indicators that our world is on a collision course with judgment. With each new day that brings another amazing revelation or discovery, or catastrophe, it only proves one thing, that our world is coming to a significant point in time where Christ has all but told us would come in due season. Today’s headlines are reading like the very pages of Revelation and as such, our only thought should be as believers is, are we doing all we can to preach the gospel before the end of our age nears?

So what is happening? What is going on in our world? Obviously the world is not getting better, it’s becoming worse and with every passing moment of time. What is the answer? The answer lies in the words of Jesus himself in Matthew 24, where he spoke about signs in the heavens as well as in the earth. Jesus gave us a warning of what was to come, and by the looks of it, his words of warning are echoing true.

We as Christians need to take an account where we are at in our own lives, for the time is coming when those around us will not endure sound doctrine, but instead, seeking soothing words, will seek false words and a false hope. But we move forward, preaching to all those who will hear, that judgment is coming.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 “But know this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.”

Repent, for the judgment of God is at hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Resistance is futile

There’s a popular line in the Sci-Fi television series, “Star Trek: TNG” in which an invading species known as “The Borg” declares their intention to all those societies who cross their path, “You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.” And in one moment, entire civilizations are then assimilated into one, single collective with no individual thought, no personal identities, just one unified body of neutrality.

But that’s science fiction.

In reality however it’s not science fiction, it’s real and it’s happening all around us. Currently, our nation, our society and many Christian leaders, are being assimilated right before our very eyes. Family members, public leaders and even children, are all falling under this assimilation and it’s being done under the guise of tolerance and acceptance. This assimilation has a name, and it’s name is called homosexuality.

If we do not act now and take the fight back to the enemy, our time for openly dealing with this issue will change the way we as Christians preach the gospel in a free and open society. Truly, we are facing one of the most challenging times the church of Christ has ever faced, excluding the coming Great tribulation, homosexuality is now the common denominator in which the church will find itself at odds with this new and changing society. More importantly, it (the church) will find themselves at odds with those who also call themselves Christians.

On June 24th, 2011, just before midnight, a declaration of war was announced, not by a foreign nation, not by militant Muslim terrorists, but by a presiding group of democratic legislatures in New York, who, driven by hatred for the gospel, passed a law recognizing the legal status of gay people and their “right” to marry, with only minutes to spare, which was readily signed into law by Governor Cuomo. The State of New York thus became the 6th State in the union to recognize same sex marriage and equal rights for homosexuals.

Make no mistake, this was a statement against God and his holy word. The assimilation of a people into accepting this lifestyle is nothing short of a people who have become immune to God’s warning of impending judgment. And because the people have unified themselves to become one people, pledging to violate the very fabric of God’s prescribed order of living, we have set a course in which the only true answer God can give is his personal judgment.

As I write this article for publishing, I am reminded of the continuing tragedies which seem to be mounting almost daily now all across this nation. From devastating tornados, floods and wild fires, this nation seems to be unyielding to a point of no return. Our economy is on the verge of literal bankruptcy, even after a momentary up swing in the U.S. dollar and stock market rise in Dow points, it seems we’ve taken another major blow to our nation and I believe it can all be pointed to where we are at when it comes to our spiritual condition as a nation. We are on the verge of ruin.

All around us people are being assimilated. Accepting ideas, false theologies and “morals” which are foreign to the true gospel, and still, with homosexuals marching in the streets of New York, celebrating the overcoming of great odds, the church has been stuck in mediocracy.

The word says in James 4:17, “Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.” There can be no more excuse for the believer. The line has been drawn, the die has been cast, a choice must be made. For God is calling out a remnant of believers who will not back down when it comes to immorality, sin, wickedness and perversion. He is calling men and women who will stand up to the face of evil and call all men to repentance. For as sure as God removed the nation of Sodom from off the face of the earth, God is warning us that we are reaching a point of no return. This nation is at a tipping point and time is a luxury we no longer have.

The assimilation of our society has begun, war has been declared and Matthew 24 is steadily being fulfilled. Remember the warning found in 2 Timothy 4:3-4, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. And they shall turn their ears from the truth and shall be turned unto fables.”

On June 24th, 2011, truth was forsaken, now judgment is coming.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is TBN silencing God's prophets?

If you would have told me 30 years ago that a Christian network in the future would play a part in the silencing of Godly men and women who were preaching the truth, denouncing corruption in the church and exposing liberalism and the teachers who promoted such views, I would have told you that maybe you should take a break from science fiction. But interestingly enough, that’s exactly what seems to be going on within the nation’s largest and most prominent Christian television network – the Trinity Broadcasting Network.

Sometime during the week of June 11th, long time preacher Jack Van Impe became the second casualty in recent years when he was ultimately silenced by officials at TBN for comments and opinions expressed in a taped program set to air on their network, but after viewing, was considered a violation of their network policies of offending other ministers, even though this same offending program was aired the previous Monday.

So why did TBN become unhinged about Jack’s comments in his program enough to not only reject him by not airing his program, but forbade any future programs which contained his DVD full length program, “Reclaiming and Restoring Biblical Christianity” as well as moving him to another night where the audience viewership was 25% less than his current time slot, which would ultimately give him a much lower viewing audience which ultimately means less exposure. So what could Jack Van Impe have said, or was going to say that brought down the wrath of the Crouches and ultimately silenced a significant preacher of the gospel?

The answer, it seems, was Rick Warren and Islam.

It’s no secret to many who believe in traditional conservative Biblical views that Rick Warren has ultimately forsaken the gospel for a social gospel, which is no gospel at all, but a gospel of popular ideas not founded on the word. Warren’s belief’s of the removal of the cross in most churches, his pro-Islamic stance and his purpose driven theology, all point to a complete rejection of foundational Biblical truth.

What Jack apparently did, was discuss the major points of four (4) leading emergent evangelical leaders and how they were combining their doctrines to include Islam, something that our Lord has strictly forbidden (Ephesians. 5:11) as well as expose the many false teachings that are literally running rampant within the modern church and the people who are behind these teachings. Two prominent leaders, Rick Warren and Robert Schuller, were singled out concerning their liberal teaching and why merging Christianity and Islamic teachings is not only wrong, but damaging to the body of Christ. Schuller’s pro-gay stance has increasingly become all too well known here and here.

Once Impe began to reveal exactly what was being taught by these men and why their popular and accepted views are being held by many ecumenical leaders today, and why these same views would seriously hinder the gospel, not to mention it’s devastating affects on evangelism, folks over at Trinity began to get nervous, possibly outright upset that someone like Warren, who to many within the TBN camp is idolized, would start getting their feathers ruffled at the mere notion that one of their favorite Pastors was being labeled a false teacher.

It didn’t take long before the consequences of touching TBN’s favorite Pastors would be revealed, as the official statement by Impe’s own website clearly states, “On Wednesday afternoon we received a call from Matt Crouch of TBN informing us that they would not run that program, despite having aired it Monday evening. The reason he gave was that we specifically mentioned Rick Warren and Robert Schuller and that it is TBN’s policy that broadcasters are not allowed to rebuke other ministries. This is a rather hypocritical statement in light of the fact that they have never said anything in the past when we have rebuked others such as Bishop Spong, Bishop Pike, and in the past few months Harold Camping and Rob Bell. They also stated that they would not run any future program where we offered our DVD Reclaiming & Restoring Biblical Christianity as a premium for a donation to our ministry. A DVD that exposes false teachers and the heresies that they proclaim.”

So it seems that not only is it forbidden to examine the teachings of others, it’s also forbidden to challenge any viewpoint that is currently popular and accepted by the status quo. That’s where the censoring begins.

There was another man, a prophet of God by the name of Jeremiah, who went before the people of Israel and preached righteousness, exposing the false ideas accepted by many of his day and when they heard what this prophet declared as “thus sayeth the Lord” the people reacted angrily to the point where Jeremiah was thrown into prison at times, yet his declaration remained true.

But this is not TBN’s first rodeo when it comes to applying pressure to someone who is openly critical of another faith, one has to simply look to Hal Lindsey and see the affects of tolerance pressure when it is applied. Lindsey himself got into much hot water for questioning Islam and why the Islamic religion is dangerous not only to our nation, much less the world, but to the body of Christ. And yet, when Lindsey began to speak openly on his program, it didn’t take long for the Crouches to put a stop to his rhetoric and soon, Hal Lindsey was removed completely from the network and long time friends (Lindsey and Crouch) became divided. Lindsey was eventually brought back to TBN after much public swaying, but obviously the damage was already done.

The idea that a Christian network, ANY Christian network, would pressure a minister of the gospel in what they can or cannot say, should concern all of us who value God’s word. A true preacher of the word cannot be regulated, nor is he subject to sermon approval, the reason is simple, the gospel must be preached regardless of who it offends. Once we start silencing the gospel under the guides of tolerance and political correctness, we lose and not only us, souls lose as well.

At a time when Christians are accepting homosexuality within its walls, accepting worldliness, secularism and humanism, when Pastors can write books stating there is no Hell and that the atonement for man’s sin is not in the cross but through psychology and a purpose driven ideology, God will raise up a watchman or a Prophet that will declare what God has to say and no other. When a Pastor cannot state for certainty how a homosexual can be saved and delivered, when another wants the church to subscribe to ecumenicalism by joining up with Muslims, while another Pastor produces a popular movie which depicts a nearly half naked woman sitting on the couch undoing her bra, something is sadly wrong within the body of Christ and it takes someone with grit to expose and deal with this problem we are now facing.

Trinity Broadcasting is in error, and their new direction is clearly a sign of the times we are living in, when men would rather seek the praises of men rather than to promote Godliness and righteousness. When a Christian network begins to silence preachers and prophets of the gospel who are doing nothing more than warning the body of Christ what is happening in the church, it fulfills the warning of the apostle Paul, who saw this great falling away in our future, “For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.” 2 Timothy 4:3

I contacted Paul Crouch Jr. seeking a comment for this article and was given this reply, “We choose to lift up the Lord, not chastise others. That’s not our calling. If he (jack van impe) needs to do that, he can buy time on secular TV outlets. Remember, we would not allow anyone to criticize Jack Van Impe either, even though many would love to! (The sword cuts both ways.) Again, it’s not our mission. “And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men…” end quote.

Again, it bears repeating, part of the gospel is weeding out the false and exposing those teachings which bring harm to the body of Christ, if we ignore those who are called of God to warn us of the poison many are bringing in, is that not lifting up the Lord by protecting his sheep he has entrusted us with?

All I can say is, judgment day is going to be a time of joy for many and a heartbreak for others.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oprah: Goodbye, Farewell and Good Riddance

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” Ephesians 5:11

Dear Oprah,

On Wednesday, May 25th, your last and final show that, for 25 years, your guidance, inspiration as well as spiritual enlightenment, will have all come to an end.

Many have watched you throughout the years transform from a mere talk show host of sub-standard entertainment about cheaters, womanizers and cross-dressers, to become one of America’s most beloved spiritual advisors on life, community and spiritual awareness. To suggest your impact on our culture was a small one is an understatement to say the least. You have captured the hearts and minds of people around the globe like no other today. The world will be celebrating your work and labor for humanity, and rightly so. You deserve everything the world would lay at your feet, for you are one of it’s own.

But I for one will not be celebrating your life’s achievements, nor will I be dripping with emotional goo when you absorb all of the accolades people will be pouring at your feet. For it is you dear Oprah, that has caused more confusion, perversion and deceit than any other person in our current time. Actually, I can think of no one to this day who comes close to you when it involves a false teacher or religious leader that could invoke their lies and impact a people the way you have done.

From your spiritual teachings and subtle indoctrination of pagan beliefs into the minds of people everywhere, your concept of “higher power” through discovering oneself by opening up to the spirit world, has caused many to believe a lie and be damned for it. How many people in these 25 years of your time in influencing people across the nation and the world, have died lost and are now in hell because of listening to you and your foolish babble? How many Christians to this day, have sadly bought into your lie of “spiritual awareness” by accepting the idea that there is more than one way to heaven, like you stated in a past episode in which you said, “There can’t possibly be just one way to God.” Then there was your other less notable quote in which you stated, “If Jesus claimed exclusive divinity, it would make Jesus the biggest egotist that ever lived”.

Then there was Jo Baldwin, your first cousin, now a professor at Mississippi Valley State whom you hired back in the late 80‘s for nearly three years and quickly fired within two. Your reason? Ms. Baldwin spoke about Jesus Christ during her time at Harpo, which you seemed to dislike. But your aversion to the gospel is not just limited to simple sound bites and testy confrontations of past employees, your distaste for the true Christ is seen in your continuing support of another gospel – and their preachers.

Della Reese, Shirley MacLaine, Michael Aquino, Raymond Moody, Shakti Gawain, Betty Eadie and Deepak Chopra are all celebrated new agers and spiritualist’s you lifted up and praised as many who listened to you bought into their lies, hook, line and sinker. Again, you have achieved much more than most false teachers in your 25 year span. But it is your connection and love for Maya Angelou, a noted new age believer, that has hindered you from the truth. For every false teacher, there must be a student, and Maya was your teacher just as much as noted new age philosopher Eric Butterworth was hers, you are both intertwined together at the root and this root was anything but Godly, or holy. Like the student you were, you grew under her guidance and soaked in every whim and doctrine that uttered out of her mouth and now YOU are the teacher.

Then it was your push for tolerance teaching in our culture and the acceptance of all ideas and beliefs, especially homosexuality, which you seemed to have a much high regard for, that made me suspect to your agenda. Your ongoing endeavor to push for the acceptance of homosexuality seemed to be at the top of your “bucket list” and it is this agenda that you have pushed that has brought even more confusion on people caught up into this lie. But this was the plan all along as with every demonic lie Satan uses to deceive people with, you were simply his pawn.

Forgive me if I won’t be celebrating your 25 years of service to our culture, our society and your enduring attempts to radicalize a culture to reject the gospel and what we, as Christians have come to love and cherish. For it will be this same gospel you have rejected all of your life that will judge you if you do not repent and turn to Jesus Christ today.

So enjoy your moment, you obviously deserve it. But I’ll be praying that God has mercy on your life and offers you that chance to repent and come to Christ before you leave this world, for if you so choose not to repent, those 25 years of achievement will seem like mere seconds to eternity when you stand before God and give an account for the lies and false teachings you have fostered in the hearts and minds of people across the world. And on that day, your answer will be telling indeed.

Your friend,

Christopher Gregory

 

 

 

 

 

Black Gospel Music riding "new cart" apostasy

Black Gospel music has long been a draw to get people into the institutionalized church. Many people will come to a church to hear the choir sing before they will come to hear the preacher preach.  New competition shows like How Sweet the Sound are now elevating the spiritually nebulous choir to greater prominence as representatives of the black church, while sex and money scandals are diminishing the role of  the preacher.

GCM Watch has covered the rampant homosexuality entrenched in the Black Gospel music industry before here and  here .  However, you should be aware that industry workers are using the “new cart method” of traveling gospel music/comedy tours, gospel music artists appearing on late night talk-shows, and gospel music artists  partnering with ungodly secular artists allegedly to “reach the youth”.

What is new cart method? If you read 1 Chronicles 13 ,it tells how King David used a new cart to bring the ark of the covenant into Jerusalem,  following the pattern of the Philistines who used a new cart to transport the ark of the covenant. The Philistines didn’t know any better because they were unaware of the methods and restrictions of transporting the Ark which literally housed the presence of God.  As King, David should have known better, because Israel were covenant people.  The scripture records that as the ark was being moved it almost fell to the ground. But a man named Uzzah instinctively reached to steady it. When his hand touched it, he was killed instantly . Judgment was swift because King David didn’t seek the proper order of the Lord. Uzzah was the son of Abinadab where the ark of the covenant had been stored at his fathers house for years. He had been around the ark nearly all his life, however he was ignorant and didn’t understand that God required his commands to be followed to the letter. And in his zeal without knowledge it cost him his life.

Deadly mix: strange fire, gospel music and new carts

As reported by gcmwatch, you have Mary Mary toured with R&B artist Maxwell and made guest appearances on BET’s 106 and Park,  Kirk Franklin and Steve Harvey (yes the one with the profane mouth) are now together on a “gospel comedy tour”.  A slew of gospel music artists are now making foot kissing missions to the foul mouthed comedian Monique. Who are they?  Kirk Franklin Yolanda Adams, Marvin SappTye Tribbett , Deitrick Haddon, Vickie Winans, Bebe and Cece Winans, Shirely Caesar, David and Tamela Mann to name a few.

In the process of attempting to be relevant to the world, to make church hip and cool, the gospel music industry has put the glory of God on new carts to win the world’s acceptance. Instead of relying on the Holy Spirit to convict lost sinners in the world to repent and be saved, acceptance and false love seems to be the goal. Gospel music is a means to the end of achieving that acceptance.

Defending Mary Mary’s worldly partnerships, a person commenting on Facebook said, “the church needs more relevant music that would draw young people”. That’s a major error circulating with black gospel devotees. It elevates music/entertainment over Jesus Christ and over scripture as the guide for so-called evangelism. But didn’t Jesus say if “I be lifted up from the earth I will draw all men unto Him.” Church folk have lifted up their gospel idols more than Jesus Christ, and the results reflect that.  It has produced a spiritually shallow,  carnal minded Christians.  The new cart method creates opposition to Five-Fold ministry which is the proper order of the Church to equip and edify the saints. Utimately, God’s gifts are to bring the body of Christ to maturity so that we’re not tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine. Music does have a place in the church, but it was not intended to  usurp the authority of Jesus Christ and his governmental gifts.

The proper order of music ministry

After the mess the gospel music industry has caused with its illegitimate “ministry”, concerned music ministers should seek to right the cart using God’s proper order within the Church.

1. Singers should sing unto the Lord, and should praise Him in the beauty of holiness(2 Chromicles 20:21). They should be separated from the world unto God. Both singers and musicians should have an inward disposition of reverence and purity, and resists all that offends the holy nature of God(1 Chronicles 16:29).

2. Songs sung in the House of God should be unto the Lord, and not for entertainment purposes to entertain the flesh and people(1 Chronicles 25:7). Songs that are sung should glorify God.

3.  True minstrels/musicians help set spiritual atmosphere for the supernatural which does not include thrill seeking song that appeal to the flesh (2 Kings 3:15).

4. Singing and the use of musical instruments being sung and played unto the Lord should be used for spiritual warfare (2 Chronicles 20:20-24; 1 Samuel 16:23).

5. The church should only accept  songs and music which are —like scripture— inspired by the  Holy Spirit ( Ephesians 5:19 ; 1 Chronicles 25:1-6).

6.  A difference between holy and unholy should always be the standard in music. Gospel music artist who claim to love God, should not partner with those who promote ungodliness, sexual immorality and use gratuitous profanity. (1 John 2:15-16 ; 2 Chronicles 19:2).

7.  The cult of celebrity should be destroyed as quickly as possible at its roots. True singers and musicians of God reflect Jesus and serve people, instead of  demanding service and accolades. (Mark 10:45).

8. Use singing and music to lead people into true sacrifice unto the Lord( Hebrews 13:15).

Pastors, leaders, church singers, and church musicians must repent from the new cart method, sanctify and follow the order of the Lord . To avoid God’s  judgment, HIS church must return to holy living.  Its a disgrace to our Lord to lead people into entertainment based false worship of people and gifts. Jesus wants back into your church. Now.

25 years ago: Dr. Walter Martin, Andy Comiskey take on progay clerics

Apprising Ministries blog put up four phenomenal videos from 1986 which show a couple of gay christian clerics unable to defend their theology. Watching them, its clear that little has changed over the last 25 years except that they have become more sophisticated in how they explain their falsehoods and half truths. These four videos provide you with a stunning instructional look at just how shallow these people are.

Thanks also to Apprising Ministries for recognizing that the gay christian movement is a significant contemporary threat to the internal spiritual health of today’s church. And like GCM Watch, AM called attention to the so-called emergent church’s collusion with the gcm. GCM Watch is extremely disappointed at the larger apologetics sites for neglecting to provide more ongoing teaching on this. We contacted several of them but they seem to believe that gcm theology is so preposterous (as one person told me) no one would believe it. What a gross misjudgment.

The videos are from pioneer talk show host June Cain Miller, featuring Dr. Walter Martin (who died 3 years after this), gay MCC cleric Rev Brad Anderson (who later died of AIDS), Rev. Wayne Christiansen (now pastor of a progay Lutheran church) anda young  Andy Comiskey who founded Desert Streams Ministry and the Living Waters Program.

The exchanges are fascinating to watch as Dr. Martin reveals the shallow fallacy of homosexual religion. Historically, he notes there existed no protestant, catholic and orthodox belief which sanctioned homosexual religion. That concept was born and advanced largely through the work of gay christian theologian John Boswell.

Martin said “Gays can be religious and there are gays that are Christians,…but they are non practicing, just like there are adulterers and fornicators who are christian but theyre not practicing. So a gay can be a Christian if they are not practicing immorality.”

Martin comment seems to suggest agreement with the new gay christian argument which allows a person to claim a gay identity but not practice homosexual sexual activity. Exodus President Alan Chamber recently addressed that.

When the gay pastor attempts to make the issue one of relative normality, Comiskey corrects him with a quick lesson on God’s intent. I love how Comiskey explains that God’s perspective is soterical, not merely prohibitional. God blocks justification of sin so that the sinner can see his need for the saving blood of Jesus Christ. However, both of the progay reverends continue to throw up strawmen arguments, evasive answers, red herrings, half truths and emotional sidebars that are embarrasing to listen to. The exchanges reminded me of the panel I participated on in Greensboro, NC.

We’ve contended for sometime that the arguments of the gcm are inherently circular and are up against a wall in terms of honesty, integrity and legitimacy. All lies create other lies to sustain themselves but eventually will come to a dead end. Literally.

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Rev 21:8

Alien tongues: Using the bible "divisive" says gay christian cleric

Its extremely difficult to imagine that a group of people who so adamantly insist they are Christians would be the same ones to wage war against the Word of God. But gay christians do and get a pass for the most part. But not here. This vicious group of smiling barracudas have caused more spiritual damage than islamic terrorists on 9/11.

The latest homosexual cleric to declare his hatred for God’s word is the Rev Erwin Barron, a Presbyterian minister in Hayward,CA. Barron “married” another man and was subsequently brought up on charges for violating church policy. The so-called trial was little more than a dog and pony show, given the spiritually bankrupt condition of the Presbyterian Church. But it happened nonetheless. And with predictable results. Barron was acquitted. Its akin to foxes putting another fox on trial for raiding the hen house.

According to the Christian Post which reported on Barron’s “trial”, he used the opportunity to recommend the church reject using the Bible when deciding on issues of homosexual morality.

The panel of the Presbytery of the Twin Cities Area voted 3-3 after a trial at Oak Grove Presbyterian Church. The decision fell short of the two-thirds vote required to convict the Rev. Erwin Barron.

A complaint was filed against Barron, who teaches at Chabot College in Hayward, Calif., after he married his gay partner, Roland Abellano in 2008. The two married in California during the few months that same-sex marriage was legal there.

Shortly after the marriage, Barron (at right with male partner) wrote several commentaries weighing in on the ongoing debate over homosexuality within the PC(USA) – the largest Presbyterian denomination in the country. He suggested that Presbyterians not begin with the Bible when addressing the issue.

So, just how does one become or maintain a status as a “Christian minister” if the person believes that using the scriptures is “divisive”? 2 Timothy 3:15 says the scriptures are able to make us “wise” unto salvation. Thus, refusing the wisdom of scriptures makes one an institutional fool. It personifies the conundrum religious homosexuals have created in the contemporary church. Anytime a blind person is put behind the wheel of a car, there’s no question death and destruction are inevitable. But that’s exactly what happens when people like Barrow are given the reins. More of his fallacious ideology:

“While Protestants always look to God’s word to guide them, Barron contended that Scripture is not the only source of moral authority.

“We also look to the continuing revelation of God in our experiences in history and tradition, in science, in reasoning, and in everyday events to guide us. Scripture and experience both must guide our moral decision-making. And reliance on one without the other can be dangerous and offensive,” he stated.
“Experience should lead us into the Bible instead of beginning with the Bible and discounting the importance of personal experience.”
“In our debates in the Presbyterian Church over homosexuality, if we begin with the Bible, we will likely reach a polarized stalemate,” he wrote. “Bible discussions are too often divisive. When we begin with the Bible, we are not beginning with a natural place for all of us.”
Rather than the Bible, the beginning point for discussions on homosexuality, he maintained, should be “the personal experiences we all share.”

Homosexuals claim they cannot help themselves when it comes to their sexual choices. It also looks like they can’t help themselves when it comes to lying. Barron folds into his anti-truth diatribe slithers of an old heresy called antinominanism. Antinominianism is a trick used by false teachers to elevate personal experience over scripture or established truth.

On its face, the antinomianist view is inherently hypocritical in part because it minimizes the written word in sexual and moral circumstances, but selectively uses it to support its own positions. Such beliefs are a dominant component of gay christian theology and account for the movement’s ability to look and sound Christian to those unfamiliar with its real beliefs.

In this case Barron  wants us to not consider the Word of God as basis of what is right and instead use personal experience —which are as varied as the fish in the ocean— as a canon of what is right.  So what if a person’s personal experience says that adult sex with children is good and right as long as its consensual?  That only leads us into the state of relativity where every man does what is right in his own eyes (Judges 21:25). And this doctrinal vomit is supposed to be accepted as Christian teaching?

This, brothers and sisters, is the consummate madness of our times. Gay christian vomit is applauded and celebrated while the good and perfect will of God is treated as if it were Hitler’s Mein Kampf.

And please do not mistake the culprits as some do. These are agents of satan who have cloaked themselves in white to appear loving and docile. They are like an infectious disease. But inwardly they are vicious wolves whose main goal is to tear down the authority and applicability of the scriptures. Barron’s entire argument is based on his presumption that consulting the bible only causes problems. Following the blind will lead you into a ditch. Proceed at your own demise.
