Reposition yourself: TD Jakes 'spiritual son' does soft porn for gay marriage

One of the false convert/spiritual sons of Bishop TD Jakes has now repositioned/reinvented himself as an advocate of homosexual marriage. Michael Irvin made the announcement via a bizarre cover story in a homosexual magazine . Like most secular and church celebrities Jakes takes under his wing to “father”, this is just another glaring example of the true fruit of false teachers. Particularly, individuals with sex saturated pasts plus talent make them soft targets for false teachers in the church. Taking advantage of Irvin’s celebrity profile, TBN rushed to get him before Christian audiences, touting him as a Christian “who’s life was changed and as a result he can minister to others.” Jakes eagerly featured Irvin as a spokesman in his “Manpower” conferences. In 2006, the Atlanta Journal Constitution wrote that during Jakes’ “Megafest” conference “NFL greats Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith paid tribute to Jakes, both calling him “daddy.” ”

But the degenerative influence of Bishop Jakes has now crested in the person of Irvin who wants African Americans to embrace homosexual marriage as normal.

To make his big announcement, Irvin posed sexually suggestive, half nude on the cover of a gay men’s magazine. The backstory justification for this bizarre advocacy by Irvin was his cross-dressing gay brother who died in 2006. An NBC DFW story reported that Irvin credits TD Jakes with helping him to accept his brother’s sexual and gender dysfunctions.

“Michael Irvin was never shy in speaking out on the football field, whether to remind an opponent that he had just been beat, or to rally his teammates on the sidelines. Now, Irvin is lending his voice to the fight for equality, appearing on the cover of this month’s issue of Out, a gay men’s magazine.

Irvin says in the article that his relationship with his brother Vaughan, an openly gay man who died of stomach cancer back in 2006, did a great deal to mold his views on same-sex relationships. According to the magazine, Irvin became aware of his brother’s sexuality in the seventies, after discovering Vaughan wearing women’s clothing, an experience that deeply affected the Hall of Fame receiver. Irvin has since reflected on the appearance with the help of Dallas Bishop T.D. Jakes.”

Even the Dallas Observer raised an eyebrow at the weird connection between the two:

“How can Irvin be both open to embracing a gay athlete and be a faithful follower in the flock of Potter’s House bishop T.D. Jakes? It is Jakes, remember, who — even after his son, Jermaine, was arrested in a gay sex sting in Dallas — calls homosexuality “brokenness” and promises to never hire a gay person into his sprawling ministry.”

If you are “surprised” about Irvin’s embrace of homosexuality, dont be. He’s been cultivating it for a while under the Jakes’ supervision. Irvin had been openly courting the homosexual community until last year when he was hit with a rape lawsuit from an alleged encounter with a woman 2007. As a result, ESPN summarily axed his show.

His gay [radio show] partner Cyd Ziegler Jr wrote: “This is a big loss for gay equality. Michael has been an incredible champion of including a gay voice on his show, even when management scratched their heads about having a gay guy on Dallas sports radio. It’s ironic that earlier this week the Dallas Morning News ran a story about how radio was Michael’s No. 1 priority.”

Its very interesting how people who creep into apostasy always end up fornicating with the homosexual community.  It seems to be a foreshadow of the bible’s depiction of Babylon. Revelation 18:1-5

After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor.  With a mighty voice he shouted:

‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.
For all the nations have drunk  the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,  and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

Then I heard another voice from heaven say:

“‘Come out of her, my people,’ so that you will not share in her sins,  so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
for her sins are piled up to heaven,  and God has remembered her crimes.

Will Episcopals "bless" pedophile relationships?

The California Diocese of the Episcopal church has decided to “bless” homosexual relationships that are “monogamous”. Don’t laugh, they are serious. Perhaps the church will assign monogamy monitors  to each couple to ensure they do what they claim they are doing.

Bishop Chester Talton of the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin in California has authorized clergy to bless the relationships of same-sex couples in church as “sacred unions.”

According to London’s Guardian, the move from Bishop Talton breaks a ban on blessing same-sex unions, an issue that has divided the Anglican Communion, which includes the U.S. Episcopal Church. Rowan Williams, the archbishop of Canterbury and head of the Anglican Communion, has declared his opposition to blessing same-sex unions.

The directive from Bishop Talton says that clergy may bless “same-gender civil marriages, domestic partnerships and relationships which are lifelong committed relationships characterised by fidelity, monogamy, mutual affection and respect [and] careful, honest communication,” reports the Guardian.

Like the Methodists who are simply aping the lost culture, the Episcopal  bishop’s rationalization for blessing what God has cursed is typical of the apostate church of today.  When challenged about sanctioning homosexual marriage, most progay clergy will invariably point to the opposition to mixed raced marriages. Why should we tell people who they can love?, they protest.

But if we fast forward a decade, will we see these same clergy justifying “intergenerational” sexual relationships by pointing to opposition of homosexual marriages? If we can’t tell a person who they can “love” (read:have sex with), then the door is already open for pedophiles to benefit from the “blessing” of homosexual marriage.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. Isaiah 5: vss 20;24

 

Methodist clergy ignore damning homosexual "marriage" research

Minneapolis – Methodist clergy in Minneapolis are either ministers of satan of insane ministers of satan.   With research showing that homosexuals have no value for what we understand and practice in relationships as monogamy, they are pressing ahead to marry same gender partners.  Who cares about silly marital restrictions like adultery and nonmonogamy when “equality” is at stake?

Seventy Methodist “clergy” have decided they intend break church (nevermind the Word of God) law and marry off homosexuals no matter what.  While the homosexual community continues to speak out both sides of the neck about their so-called marriage, new information is out that homosexual marriage is more like snakes mating in dens than a counterpart to tradition heterosexual marriage. The truth is out, so read on.

“We joyfully affirm that we will offer the grace of the Church’s blessing to any prepared couple desiring Christian marriage,” reads the statement introduced this week at the 2011 Minnesota Annual Conference.

“We are convinced by the witness of others and are compelled by Spirit and conscience to act. We thank the many United Methodists who have already called for full equality and inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the life of the Church.”

The Rev. Bruce Robbins, pastor of Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church in Minneapolis, read the statement to clergy Wednesday during a time of personal privilege, the United Methodist News Service reported. By the end the day, 40 clergy members had signed the statement. As of Friday, the number of signers reached 70.

Although the statement is just a statement, publicly advocating for lawlessness and the breaking of church rule belies the heart of these religious heathens. All the platitudes about covenant, civility, equality and faithfulness are just euphemisms for sanctioning sin. When the leaders cause people to go astray and disobey the Word of God, God himself pronounces severe judgment on them.

Jeremiah 23:1 -2 Woe unto the shepherds that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith Jehovah. Therefore thus saith Jehovah, the God of Israel, against the shepherds that feed my people: Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them; behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith Jehovah.

Speaking of homosexual marriage, here’s what the clergy are breaking God’s law to “bless”. A story in the New York Times said that a number of homosexual marriages are “successful” because they do not live by stupid rules like not committing adultery with multiple sex partners. The article was by undercover gay journalist Scott James. Remember him?

When Rio and Ray married in 2008, the Bay Area women omitted two words from their wedding vows: fidelity and monogamy.

“I take it as a gift that someone will be that open and honest and sharing with me,” said Rio, using the word “open” to describe their marriage.

Love brought the middle-age couple together — they wed during California’s brief legal window for same-sex marriage. But they knew from the beginning that their bond would be forged on their own terms, including what they call “play” with other women.

As the trial phase of the constitutional battle to overturn the Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage concludes in federal court, gay nuptials are portrayed by opponents as an effort to rewrite the traditional rules of matrimony. Quietly, outside of the news media and courtroom spotlight, many gay couples are doing just that, according to groundbreaking new research.

A study to be released next month is offering a rare glimpse inside gay relationships and reveals that monogamy is not a central feature for many. Some gay men and lesbians argue that, as a result, they have stronger, longer-lasting and more honest relationships. And while that may sound counterintuitive, some experts say boundary-challenging gay relationships represent an evolution in marriage — one that might point the way for the survival of the institution.

New research at San Francisco State University reveals just how common open relationships are among gay men and lesbians in the Bay Area. The Gay Couples Study has followed 556 male couples for three years — about 50 percent of those surveyed have sex outside their relationships, with the knowledge and approval of their partners.

That consent is key. “With straight people, it’s called affairs or cheating,” said Colleen Hoff, the study’s principal investigator, “but with gay people it does not have such negative connotations.”

The study also found open gay couples just as happy in their relationships as pairs in sexually exclusive unions, Dr. Hoff said. A different study, published in 1985, concluded that open gay relationships actually lasted longer.

None of this is news in the gay community, but few will speak publicly about it. Of the dozen people in open relationships contacted for this column, no one would agree to use his or her full name, citing privacy concerns. They also worried that discussing the subject could undermine the legal fight for same-sex marriage.

According to the research, open relationships almost always have rules.

So this is what the Methodist pastors want to bless?

Presbyterians now in the gay marriage zone

Mirroring the world by promoting and defending the gay marriage ideology, US churches are one by one falling prey to a seductive doctrine of demons called homosexual inclusion.  Sin has no “equality” with holiness, but some denominations are falling away from truth and the nakedness of their sin is showing.  Anytime you see leaders in any denomination or religious organization calling for “tolerance”, “respect” and “dialogue” on the issue of homosexuality it is cause to be suspicious. When it comes to ordination, marriage and leadership in the church of Christ, there is no discussion necessary. Unrepentant sinners cannot lead the people of God. But things are changing. For the worse I might add.

Reports One News Now:

PCUSAThis week’s General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) will consider redefining marriage to include same-sex couples and allowing ministers to perform same-sex weddings.

Carmen Fowler, president of the Presbyterian Lay Committee, believes those sorts of initiatives are to blame for the denomination’s declining membership.

Her group supports upholding the church’s traditional definition of marriage.

The PCUSA’s newly-elected moderator, Cynthia Bolbach, supports gay marriage but told the assembly on Saturday that the denomination has become paralyzed.

Fowler says that’s what happens when a church body becomes disconnected from its head — Jesus Christ.

The PCUSA is currently running a PR campaign which has the gall to declare pride in being Presbyterian “because it is God centered”.

According to the Christian Post, the PCUSA has been “debating this issue since 1991. That’s a long time to debate the validity of something with such a clear condemnation in scripture. It shows how weak many US denominations are spiritually and how far many have strayed away from foundational truth. With the election of a pro-homosexual moderator for the PCUSA, the issue now appears to be moving in favor of those who want the PCUSA to become another gay affirming denomination.

The newly elected moderator wasted no time with the smooth words of hate for God’s word:

“Those in favor of the full inclusion of gays and lesbians in our life together – and I include myself in that group – believe that we fail to satisfy the Gospel imperative of inclusiveness as we continue to exclude gays and lesbians from leadership in our church,” she said. “But there are also many within our church who believe that homosexual behavior is a sin that violates Scripture’s mandates. I respect their beliefs, and I want to continue in conversation with them about this basic issue.”

Continue to have conversation? The truth is they have  already decided that the denomination will be prohomosexual. The “conversation” is just to win more converts. That’s why its dangerous to even enter into these traps. People like Cynthia Bolbach have no intention of honoring or adhering to the truth of scripture. They words are just like the poisonous bite of a viper.

John Sloop of Shenandoah Presbytery interestingly argued that the church is being left behind if it does not accept the homosexual lifestyle that the world has already accepted.

“Jesus called on us to be the light of the world. But he never meant for us to be the tail lights,” he said, according to The Presbyterian Outlook.

And it goes on and on. The insanity that has taken over some churches is nothing but rebellion against the rule of the Lord Jesus. Since they wont be honest, I will. They despise him, his rule and his law. But they need his name to continue the deception. That’s why if you are in this denomination and any other for that matter, you should treat it like sodom and gomorrah and flee without looking back.

If the statistics are true, some are doing just that.

The ongoing debate over homosexuality comes as membership continues to decline in the PC(USA) – the largest Presbyterian denomination in the country. According to a newly released report, membership dropped by 2.9 percent to just over 2 million in 2009. The number of churches has also decreased to 10,657. Eighty-eight churches were dissolved and 15 were dismissed to other denominations. There were 524 more adult baptisms in 2009 compared to the previous year, but the denomination saw 1,336 fewer children baptisms.

Leave these apostates and take your money with you. Let them fund their own voyage into hell.

New study: gay couples don't value monogamy

Please understand the marriage wars are far from over. But new information proves that the oft mocked slippery slope is indeed a very slippery reality. Since the homosexual community has enlisted the gay church as its lackeys to sanctify what God has called abominable, let’s just be sure  we know what they are demanding we be “accepting” of. Lifesite News carried the following out of San Francisco:

In discussing a new study confirming that polygamy is a staple within gay “marriages,” a New York Times article has suggested that doing away with the concept of spousal fidelity in marriage represents an “evolution” that “might point the way for the survival of the institution.”

NYT columnist Scott James reported January 28 on a project by San Francisco State University’s Center for Research on Gender and Sexuality examining various aspects of homosexual relationships.  James says the study, which is scheduled for release this month, “reveals that monogamy is not a central feature for many.”

“Some gay men and lesbians argue that, as a result, they have stronger, longer-lasting and more honest relationships,” the article continues.  “And while that may sound counterintuitive, some experts say boundary-challenging gay relationships represent an evolution in marriage — one that might point the way for the survival of the institution.”

Colleen Hoff, one of the study’s researchers, remarked: “With straight people, it’s called affairs or cheating, but with gay people it does not have such negative connotations.”

Steve Weinstein, the editor-in-chief of the gay news service EDGE Boston, said that the research could be placed into “the category of ‘studies that confirm the painfully obvious.'”

James also admits that “none of this is news in the gay community, but few will speak publicly about it,” with many expressing fear that “discussing the subject could undermine the legal fight for same-sex marriage.”

Joe Quirk, author of the sex-themed bestseller “It’s Not You, It’s Biology,” argued that “the combination of freedom and mutual understanding can foster a unique level of trust.”

“If innovation in marriage is going to occur, it will be spearheaded by homosexual marriages,” said Quirk.

Scott James, the writer of the NYT article suggests that destroying the concept of spousal fidelity is an “evolution”. James is the same gay writer who launched the so-called homphobia attack on Vallejo, CA mayor Osby Davis.

So let’s understand where approving homosexual marriage is leading us. Countless people have warned already homosexual marriage is at best a parody and at worst a leading indicator of the disintegration of our society. Whether delayed or immediate, direct or indirect,  we and our children will suffer the consequences for such a foolish and emotional decision. Even with divorce and other negative factors affecting male-female marriage, there exists no common acceptance among male-female marriage to allow one’s spouse sexual relationships outside the marriage. Yet now the homosexual media itself acknowledges what the gay rights agenda wants to equalize is based on a  destructive view of relationships.

For your deceptive pleasure, its being repackaged as “equality”, equal rights”, “civil rights” and “marriage equality”.  All of the fake media-driven photos of happyfied homosexual couples mean nothing. Behind the propaganda photos, these people reject the very basis of what God-ordained, God-created and God-approved marriage constitutes. Covenant with one person of the opposite gender. The people of God should in no way approve, sanction or be complicit in helping to destroy God’s foundations for the family.

When God blessed the union of man and woman in Genesis it formed an everlasting standard for what is acceptable to Him, the creator.

How you can help cripple the homosexual marriage machine:

1. Stop voting for or supporting any political candidate —whether local or national— who favors legalizing homosexual marriage in any context. 1b. Be vocal in demanding they go on record with their beliefs.

2. Demand that church leaders stop supporting and/or allowing prohomosexual political candidates access to Sunday morning pulpits in exchange for backroom favors.

3. Stop promoting or purchasing merchandise produced by any Christian artist who aligns themselves with homosexual marriage or behavior as acceptable to God.

4. As followers of Jesus Christ, make sure you  always uphold God’s standard for marriage. 1 [biological]man with 1 [biological] woman for life.

5. If you are single  Christian and committing sexual fornication, stop now and learn to possess your body in sanctification and honor. This is the will of God. 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8

6. Pray. The fervent effectual prayer of the righteous availeth much.

Jay Bakker given the silent treatment at church

Jay Bakker, son of Jim and the late Tammy Faye has made a name for himself primarily for being prohomosexual. As you’ll see in the video clip, he must have underestimated his audience at Grace Church where he was speaking. Its a little strange because if this is  DE Paulk’s (whom you see in the clip) Grace Church it makes you wonder if most of the African Americans in attendance were aware that Paulk is also progay marriage. Paulk apparently brought Bakker into talk, but the people drew back when Bakker said that homosexual marriage is not a sin.

Don’t applaud too much for the fickle sheeple because the things Bakker were saying before that really were not Godly either and they laughed and amen-ed at that.

Overall, Im glad they flip-flopped on him. False prophets need a splash of ice cold water in their face as often as possible.

A 'beautiful' abomination?: pimpdom Act II

If homosexuality is biblically an abomination, wouldn’t that make homosexual marriage an abomination also?

Unless God has deleted over 25 passages of scripture which condemn homosexual relationships in every context, it is.

But dont tell that to the Revs Dennis and Christine Wiley in Washington DC who called the homosexual marriages they officiated over at their Covenant Baptist Church “beautiful”.  GCM Watch profiled these two pulpit pimps in June last year, now they’re back in the news. Unless Congress vetoes the vote of the DC city council, the nation’s capital is next in line to sanction homosexual marriage.

The Washington Post published an mini tell all by the Wileys whose biggest claim to fame is that they marry gay couples.

“Our church is the first and only traditional black church in the District of Columbia to perform same-sex unions. We conducted our first two union ceremonies, one gay and one lesbian, in the summer of 2007. The rapid political developments that followedwileys in our nation and our city have made us optimistic that by the summer of 2010, same-sex nuptials will be not only blessed by churches such as ours, but also sanctioned by law in the District.

After that first ceremony in our church, we were pleased and relieved; many members and guests told us how beautiful the service had been. But not everyone who attended shared this feeling. After most of the guests left, one longtime parishioner approached us, shaking. In a voice filled with rage, she asked how we could desecrate the sanctuary with such an ungodly act. She vowed to no longer be a member of our church.”

The member was wrong. The sanctuary was most likely never consecrated. The Wileys are false teachers who saw an itching ear opportunity and exploited it.  That’s what false teachers do. The gay community is lusting after unhealthy attention, affection and affirmation (aka marriage). So the Wiley’s gave it to them. Of course, since Wiley was having money problems last June per one of his supportive members, it made sense to start marrying the gays for a small fee. As the “only traditional black church” in DC doing so, there was much cash to be raked in by the Wileys.

The Wileys justification for their decision is based on the same old hocus-pocus lies currently being repeated ad naseum by the gay christian movement and its adherents.

“Through Bible study, reflection on theology and history, and experience, we had come to believe that it was unjust to deny same-sex couples the opportunity to consecrate their relationships in the same way that we allow opposite-sex couples to. Before the ceremony in the church, each of us had performed a same-sex union ceremony elsewhere. But this was our home. The church had voted to become an inclusive congregation. How could we justify treating same-sex couples as second-class citizens?”

100% of the bible condemns homosexual relationships. So how could any person with a clear spiritual mind come to such a  conclusion? We get a major clue in 1 Timothy 1:16.

They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

A reprobate mind. When a person embraces what God has condemned (by God’s own definition) and rejects the created model which God has pronounced good, a process of hardening and mental perversion begins to take root in the mind. That’s the very real danger of justifying sin. Sin corrupts the mind and conscience (the seat of individual integrity and morality)  rendering it incapable of making spiritually sound decisions. According to Genesis 2:18-25, there God created one suitable partner for man. And that was a woman. And the same is true for woman, man is the only suitable partner for her. Why didnt the Wileys see this very clear and fundamental truth in their alleged “bible study”?

“When issues of gay rights and gay marriage come up, the first question many black people ask is, “What does the Bible have to say about it?” This seemingly innocent question doesn’t acknowledge that when we approach the Bible, our perspective has been shaped by where we were born, by whom we were raised, what Grandma taught us, where we went to school and what our pastor preached in church — usually conservative ideas on matters such as homosexuality. Therefore, we tend to interpret the Bible not objectively, but through the lens of our cultural and historical context.

The conservative strand of black religion is evident in what Harvard professor Peter Gomes calls “bibliolatry” — the practice of worshiping the Bible rather than worshiping God. It is also found in a “literal” interpretation of the Bible that focuses more on the letter of the text than on its spirit, and concentrates on passages about domination, oppression, hierarchy, elitism and exclusion rather than on the major themes of love, justice, freedom, equality and inclusion that run throughout the Bible.”

As Judge Mathis would say: “Get your lie straight!” Wiley claims the only reason we believe that homosexuality is sin is because of “cultural and historical context” passed down by grandma nem. And don’t forget the “homophobia” card Rev. Wiley. That’s required if you want to score major points with the cash-bearing gays who want to get married. And to make you appear really enlightened, quote homosexual apostate Peter Gomes. That should do it. Now, see how easy it is to nullify what the Bible says?

What’s interesting about that statement lie, is that gay religion apologists argue that the bible should be interpreted through the lens of culture and historical context, not literally. That allows them to do all sorts of allegorical acrobatics with the text.

Its sad and altogether tragic the gay community is so spiritually blind they cannot see they are one of the most pimped out communities in America.
