Matthew Vines, the very pro-homosexual false teacher who claims the Bible doesn’t teach against homosexuality, has been on the receiving end of a lot of responses to his claims. A fellow blogger actually had an on-line discussion with him, demonstrating the problems with his false teachings. Several top scholars have also responded to Vines’ “40 questions for Christians who oppose marriage equality.” [link gone by 7/14/18] I selected two responses to help Christians who have similar questions posed to them. The first is by James White, and the second is by Douglas Wilson. Each gives an interesting perspective.
Pastor Don Green will be speaking at an upcoming conference about homosexuality. It is important that churches address this issue from the pulpit because so many Christians have succumbed to the lie that “love” makes homosexuality acceptable. The “Christian” homosexual movement is much like a cult, and therefore needs to be examined and exposed like any other cult so as to protect the uninformed. It’s really sad that we have to address such a disgusting topic, but it is invading the church at a phenomenal rate, and the true church will be persecuted because of our stand against it.
As an example of how desensitized Christians and their leaders have become, watch this video with Andy Stanley telling a story about an issue in his mega-church. Notice that he doesn’t have a problem with a man being homosexual and holding down a ministry in his assembly, rather his problem was that the man was having an affair with the husband of a woman! The homosexual couple was permitted to continue attending his assembly even though they were still unrepentant and active in their homosexual union!
Oh, darn! I missed out on attending Gloria Copeland’s healing school on the 4th. Just think, if I attended her school I would be able to go around healing people the way Benny Hinn does. (snark)
Steven Furtick is another blight on the name of Christ who preached at Hillsong this past spring . This guy pretends to be a pastor but he seems more of a narcissist. Remember, this is the guy who calls those of us who expose him, “haters.” This “sermon,” [link gone by 3/6/16] which is at his own church, has Furtick claiming he is anointed. He continues to point out that “Christ” means “anointed” and therefore all of us who are Christians are “anointed.” It reminds me Benny Hinn who did the same with the word “Messiah,” and that we are all little messiahs. Then he proceeds to teach about self-affirmation, sounding much like Joel Osteen! I wonder how long it will be before he becomes full-blown Word of Faith. See how many of these quotes sound like WOF or Joel Osteen stuff.
Rick Warren continues to show his true apostate colors. He will be co-speaking with a Catholic Cardinal at the Pope’s “World Meeting of Families” in September.
Mark Driscoll continues to demonstrate why is not qualified to be a pastor. He has publicly repented for criticizing Joel Osteen’s teachings. So I guess that means everyone else who continues to point out the heretical nature of Osteen’s teachings are going to be condemned by Driscoll?
Well, that’s enough for today; I need to make a “Random…” post for my “Anti-Mormon Blog.”
