The answer, I am sorry to say, is “Yes.” At least for some pastors. Especially liberal pastors, if that’s not a contradiction in terms.
So it’s five years ago and a notorious pervert, who’s already been publicly charged as such, is running for mayor of New York City… and this walking bird-bath of a pastor likens him to Moses and Ezekiel.
The good news is that we are Christ’s people, not any particular pastor’s, and we don’t have to put up with this.
But much harm has been done to our culture by writing off flagrant wickedness as virtually blameless “mistakes.”
The Stegosaurus, Colorado’s state dinosaur. Somehow it seems terribly unfair that dinosaurs are extinct and liberals aren’t.
The key to understanding liberals is that, to them, everything bad is good and everything good is bad.
Keep that simple principle in mind as you read this news item about the liberal Lutheran “pastor” in Pot-head Colorado who melted down a bunch of Christian purity rings so she could re-shape the plastic into a statue of a vagina (https://www.lifenews.com/2018/12/05/lutheran-pastor-melts-down-christian-purity-rings-to-create-a-vagina-statue/). And I can’t believe I just typed that sentence.
Why does she do it? Because she’s a liberal, so she thinks purity is something bad. She even invites people to send her their Christian purity rings so she can melt them down and, she babbles, help to start “a Sexual Reformation.” If you send her your purity ring, she’ll send you a “certificate of impurity.” She’s a liberal, so she thinks impurity is something good.
She used to be a standup comic. Something tells me she’s less funny as a pastor.
She has tattoos.
Yeah, I know, we’re not supposed to judge by appearances. But when someone takes that much trouble over her appearance, so as to send a message to anyone who chances to look on her, I think we’re allowed to read the message. In this case, I think, the message is “I am a big fat liberal fat-head and my theology, I don’t know, it’s either wicked or preposterous, or both.” At least that’s the vibe I get from her.
Let us all resolve to oppose liberalism on every front and never stop until it’s utterly defeated, everywhere.
You priests and ministers and seminary profs, who bless abortion mills, perform wicked same-sex parodies of marriage, and proclaim transgenderism–
Listen up. This is God talking to you, through the prophet Malachi. Talking to you, sunshine!
Ye have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and he delighteth in them… (Malachi 2:17)
You’ve been warned. Yet you take pleasure in those who themselves do evil, and teach and encourage others to do the same.
If you have ears, use ’em now. If you still have a conscience, better start listening to it.
Hear the word of the Lord, and live.
I don’t know how I missed this story in October, 2015. It should have sounded an exceedingly loud alarm for the spiritual welfare of America’s churches.
A bunch of Methodist and Episcopal “clergy”–I use the term loosely–gathered at an abortion center in Cleveland to bless the place ( https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/methodist-episcopalian-clergy-bless-cleveland-abortion-clinic-in-prayer-ser ). They were members of the “Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice,” that is, abortion. They think it’s nice. The president of the group is a sodomite “married” to another man. The rest are ministerettes. If you didn’t see the news photo, you would still know exactly what they looked like.
Has the church in America lost its way? The mainline/flatline church sure has.
They’re gonna need a bigger Hell.
