BAPTIST PASTOR WRITES IN USA TODAY THAT THE BIBLE CAN’T BE TRUSTED, AND THAT THE CHURCH MUST ACCEPT OPEN LGBTQP MEMBERS IN ORDER TO SURVIVE by Geoffrey Grider for Now The End Begins
GNN Note – It’s funny I was just sitting here thinking…should I actually trust the Bible, you know the word of God? And it struck me…If I trust some baptist preacher over the word of God that places the baptist preacher higher than God…not sure how that’s a thing, but it’s not a thing at this house.
The Church that Jesus Christ shed His blood to create is not inclusive, it is exclusive. Jesus says you can ‘come as you are’ but you can’t stay as you are. I came to God 28 years ago as a hopeless drunk, and guess what? The bible is against drunkenness, so I had to quit it. Are you LGBTQP? Great, come to Jesus and get saved, the bible says God is happy to have you. But proof that you are really saved is that the Holy Spirit that started living inside when you got saved now tells you that homosexuality is a sin, and you need to ask God for grace to quit it. No born again Christian, even when they fall into sin, would ever condone sin and try to justify it. We are struggle and we all fall short. But if there is no struggle there is likely no salvation, either.
I cannot say it anymore loudly, any stronger or one bit more passionately than I have been – we are in the falling away from the truth of bible doctrine that Paul prophesied could one day happen. It is happening now, right now, today. If you’re looking for ‘proof’ stop looking, because if this doesn’t prove it to you, you are incapable of recognizing truth.
If you ever needed proof that we are knee-deep into that great time of apostasy that Paul calls the ‘falling away’, look no further. This article we present to you today will confirm that for you a hundred times over. On the USA Today site, it says that Oliver Thomas is a retired American Baptist minister and a member of USA TODAY’s Board of Contributors. He has written an article so Liberal and so Far Left that even Joel Osteen would have trouble putting his name on it. Well, maybe.
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 (KJV)
Apostate Thomas states that the Christian church has failed in two main areas. The first area, he says, is our mistake in ‘believing the bible to be true’, and ‘taking it literally’. The second area he berates the Church is ‘getting it wrong’ on LGBTQ+P for pedophile people. Thomas says that the passages dealing with homosexuality were ‘written by men’, and as such, ‘cannot be trusted’. Shall I pause for a moment while we let this sink into your brain? Nah.
