Anti-Gay Tennessee Pastor Would Like To Remind You Stoning Gays Was A-OK Under the OT

A conservative pastor suggests the "mindset of God" includes the stoning of gay people...I guess he thought God was just joking around with all that "love thy neighbor" and "do unto others..." stuff. Asshat. He should be arrested for inciting violence.

To one Tennessee preacher, apparently, the good old days included the ability to stone gays to death.

Pastor Ben Bailey of the Central Church of Christ recorded a video in which he says the "mindset of God" is unchanging. God has "a definite standard and it is not the liberal mindset that we see today," Bailey says during his weekly "The Gospel of Christ" evangelistic effort.

"The Gospel Of Christ program seeks to teach and preach THE WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD, regardless of the consequence or reaction," its website states.

Bailey tells viewers of a recent article which examined four couples and the reasons they chose their particular church. Some couples opted for a church that advanced "relaxed and liberal views," which are not in keeping with God's views, Bailey insisted. They wanted "things like women preaching, women leading in service, where homosexuals and gay marriage were accepted openly," which God, he says, opposes.

"They were just looking for something liberal," Bailey claimed. "Something that didn’t criticize or condemn or didn’t have any hardcore standards on anything — 'anything goes' type of mentality."

Bailey said that "if that's what you're looking for, you can surely find a multiplicity of that today. But is that what God's looking for?" he posited.

God "has a definite standard and it is not the liberal mindset that we see today," Bailey continued.

"God does not approve of homosexuality or gay marriage," Bailey promised. "The scripture says… that is vile, unnatural and deserving of a penalty… It’s an abomination that under the Old Testament deserved stoning."

"And so, is our God, the God of Bible, wanting us to go somewhere where it's liberal, relaxed views and anything goes? No, that’s the effect of a very liberal society. And we need to make sure that such is not the idea or the mindset of God."

On his The Gospel of Christ website, one sermon delves deeply into the issue:

In the days in which we live, how people need to hear that marriage is for a man and a woman! You will never find in the Bible God’s authorization for men-to-men or women- to-women marriages. Marriage is for one man and one woman. In fact, Scripture clearly condemns the homosexuality and lesbian acts that are so frequent in our world today. Regardless of what a court system or state decides that homosexuals can marry, God never intended for that to take place. And, He actually condemns it. Leviticus 18:22 and Leviticus 20:12-13 state that such acts were “abominations” in the sight of God, and were punishable by stoning.

Someone might say, “Well, that was under the Old Law.” Did you know that the New Testament says that homosexuality is a sin against God and nature? In Romans 1:26-29 we are told that homosexuality is immoral and ungodly, and that people who engage in such will receive the eternal punishment that is due to them if they do not change their ways.

Someone might ask, “Are you telling me, then, that if two men get married, they will be lost in Hell?” Listen to the words of 1 Corinthians 6:9-10.

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”

People who remain in sins such as fornication, idolatry, and homosexuality will not go to Heaven. Yes, the Bible clearly teaches that homosexuals will not go to Heaven. That is what God has said on this subject. How does that relate to marriage? We need to honor the holy state of marriage. It is intended to last for life, and is intended to be between one man and one woman. That is God’s original decree, and is what Paul is referencing in verse 2.

It's people like this pastor who draw the dregs of humanity to themselves , that will destroy the cult of Jesus.
Because if you were an all powerful God, why would you have assholes like that on the payroll?

The one who wants to refuse an ELEVEN YEAR OLD girl from having an abortion as the result of her rape by her stepfather? He is a simply a toad. I know there are curse words and epithets that can be slung. But he is a toad, and should be down in the slime where he belongs.

I know that God doesn't listen to every prayer - because if he did, he's throw thunderbolts at some of the dumb fucks who say things "in His name." Doesn't this idiot also know that the Old Testament says God stated to stone children who disrespected their parents???? Are we just gonna slide on by THAT one? Forget all the mass baby slaughters God was so fond of in the Old Testament.

I wonder how many plates of shrimp, lobster and crab this guy has eaten in his life ?? Same for some good ole TN bbq pork ?? What do you want to bet the suit he's wearing is of mixed fiber ?? Since he get's paid for preaching on Sunday, doesn't that constitute working on the Sabbath ?

If he wants to invoke the old testament, I think he should have to live by ALL the rules of the old testament.

One of THE best scenes ever put on TV.
