(Stoke up the fire…)
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain. –the Third Commandment (Exodus 20:7)
There’s joy in Hell whenever an ordained minister of the Gospel does a thing like this. Presbyterian “Reverend” Marvin Ellison recently blessed a Planned Parenthood abortion mill, denounced abortion’s critics, and even volunteered to be its chaplain (http://www.lifenews.com/2018/05/11/presbyterian-minister-blesses-planned-parenthood-abortion-clinic-in-gods-name-volunteers-as-its-chaplain/). What–couldn’t he find a job at Buchenwald?
“In the name of all that is holy and good,” the apostate intoned, “Planned Parenthood your name is blessed.” This happened in Portland, Maine.
Is there a church that this evil man can be kicked out of?
Where do you even begin with a story like this?
We start with a “Christian mommy blogger” who becomes the idol and oracle of millions, writes a New York Times best-seller, makes boxcar-loads of money–and then “marries” another woman ( http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/culture/sarah-stites/2017/05/16/christian-mommy-blogger-marries-female-soccer-star-media-avoid … sorry, it’s one of those stupid links that’s impossible to copy because it’s too long: if you want to read the original story, go to Newsbusters).
This woman dumped her husband. She has three children. So what? They might as well be three goldfish, for all the serious thought they get. I hope I would take care of a goldfish better than this Christian mommy is taking care of her children.
And in the spirit of stomping all over the Third Commandment (“Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain”), this Christian mommy takes refuge in tired old flatline Protestant cliches.
Jesus never gave a sermon denouncing homosexuality; therefor homosexuality is perfectly okay. (He never denounced abortion, either. Guess that’s okay, too.)
Oh! And we can’t possibly proceed without the slogan, “LOVE WINS!” Yeah. Any ol’ kinda “love.” Doesn’t matter what kind.
O Lord Our God, when you judge our nation, remember, we pray, that these things are done without our consent, against our will, and over our objections. In Jesus’ name, amen.
