Very Misleading to call him a Christian. He is not, not one Christian I know would support that nonsense. But hey lumping all in with him helps your agenda to embarrass people of Faith........

Why is it misleading? It isn't at all if you follow the Bible and what the Bible says and dictates. To be a Christian is to believe the Bible. The Bible says to kill homosexuals, unruly children and harlots. The Bible is rife with its position of homosexuals, in both the Old and New Testament. The Book of Romans talks about putting away the natural affection of the woman with burning lusts of one another. All destined to hell. That's the Bible!

The Bible is not a book of love and forgiveness. People who say it is "cherry pick" the Bible to its own ends without reading the whole text. The vast majority of people with faith go to a church or a temple and have someone else, a minister or a priest tell them what the Bible says and doesn't say. The Bible is such a convoluted mess that it is very difficult to read and understand and people for over a thousand years have had their own interpretations, hence the hundreds of denominations.

Christmas itself is condemned in the Bible. Read Jeremiah 10;1-5 (or 6) Christmas comes from Paganism. Ask a minister, should Christians co-opt and celebrate pagan beliefs? Most all will say no way. But here we are. So any minister or church that celebrate Christmas is Biblically ignorant.

The best Bible teachers I have had online have been the Westboro Baptist Church. God doesn't love everyone. God sends people to hell. God kills. God predestines people to hell and death, to deny this is to deny His divinity.

Anyone with love, forgiveness, tolerance and acceptance of other people should steer clear of the Bible!

Our Founders understood precisely that allowing government and religion to mix would invariably lead to passions that would be the end of the republic. While most were religious men, they took pains to keep religion out of politics.

By God, you don't compromise with folks when you're acting in the name of God. You don't compromise with evil. The other side is not just bad. It's evil.

Up next: The death of the republic.

Every time a child molester is caught they are either preachers or teachers. I am going to move my grandkids up from Florida to Brown Township where crime is nonexistent. My grandkids currently live in Largo, Florida and I have been there. Largo had the strip clubs when I lived in Pinellas Park doing work in Clearwater. No strip clubs in Brown Township or wholesale or retail business of any kind. No apartments in Brown Township and no trailers or churches, permitted. If you want to build a McMansion or shack in Brown Township it has to be on a five acre lot or bigger. Property tax is astronomical.

edit: A five acre lot costs 250 thousand in Brown Township and the Brown Township Trustees rule supreme. Chickens are illegal in Brown Township but horses are legal. Dad burn specified local regulations should be repealed en masse. I will eat a chicken but not a horse.

Most statistics tell us that nearly 50% of Americans have no church home. In the 1980s, membership in the church had dropped almost 10%; then, in the 1990s, it worsened by another 12% drop-some denominations reporting a 40% drop in their membership. And membership continues to drop.

According to the U.S. Census, every year more than 4000 churches close their doors compared to just over 1000 new church starts! Every year, 2.7 million church members fall into inactivity. This translates into the realization that people are leaving the church.

AND there are lots of reasons. For one thing, Christians are fed up with TV evangelical preachers who live lavish lifestyles. They are fully aware of the hypocrisy they preach and want nothing to do with that kind of hubris.
Many Christians see our morally bankrupt political leaders who proclaim to be Christian and hate what they see. There's a huge disconnect between what the church is preaching and what they are doing....what the preachers are preaching and what they are doing.....what the politicians and leaders are saying and what they are doing.
There's an arrogance within SOME Christian communities that smells more like hell than heaven.
Churches FAIL because people place their own needs and desires over God's word. Selfishness is pervasive. Christians are called to a higher purpose, not to ourselves....and every single time a "Christian" considers him/herself to be privy to Gods inner workings, we want to walk away.
So, many DO....walk away. Many. Each day.

But that separation should go both ways. Modern anti-faith crowd want to force government to make churches do... or not do... X

Some at DTT aren't far off from this:



Today on DTT I read a post similar to this "sermon."
How can such people claim to be Christians?

I do and if I heard my preacher stating this anywhere much less the pulpit

1. I would call for a vote in the church to remove him as pastor.
2. if the Church would not vote to remove him or if the vote to remove him failed I would leave the church. \
3. I would contact the church that ordained him as a pastor and request they revoke is ordination.

I had problems with Rev Jeremiah Write using "G-D" from the pulpit would have done the same for him.
