No Wonder it Took Mark Driscoll so Long to Resign, and Why He’ll Be Back…

with 2 comments

hereticIt’s got to be hard to give up a pay package of over $800,000 a year…  The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.  In Driscoll’s case, the evil of self-aggrandizement and superiority.

With that kind of cabbage on the line I would be willing to maintain that Driscoll will be back after all the hubbub dies down.  I would wager he wished social media didn’t exist because were it not for him being called out publicly for his lies, manipulations, misdeeds, and plagiarism he would still be wearing his tiny microphone and Mickey Mouse tee shirt and spreading his false teaching to all the willfully gullible and ignorant who festoon the ‘sanctuary’ (read, auditorium) of Mars Hill Cult ‘Church’.

Megachurch Pastors do love their prestige.  Bless ‘em… (by which of course I mean, may they be anathematized for besmirching the good name of Christ by their greed).

When You Swim in the Constantinian Sewer…

Heterodoxy becomes your mantra.  As has happened to this poor lad (whose name I’ve marked through with a red line so as to spare him any embarrassment).  Who but a neo-gnostic (or Harvard prof who was given a secret ancient ‘gospel’ from a singularly suspicious source) would cite Thomas as though truth were present?

This is, however, to be expected when one sees Constantine the foul as less than demonic.  Be careful, dear friends, with whom you associate.  The filth of heresy spreads as easy as a cold and is as deadly as ebola.

Martin Luther on (Mutatis Mutandis) Mark Driscoll

You have heard what a great treasure an elder is who is a sincere teacher of the church. If the Lord should give such a one, He would give a great treasure, nothing with crowns and pomp of empire. You see, he is taking care of souls and the organ of eternal life through which flow salvation and life. At the other extreme, we have no more harmful an enemy than a false teacher. Now see how difficult it is to find a sincere teacher. Satan corrupts the finest men. Where one is sincere, 10 on the other hand are destructive. How many do we have who teach the sincere Word? If only we had 10 more! To be sure, some are diligent, but those who labor in the Word are rare. Our ingratitude is such that we deserve to have teachers who lead us to destruction.

And elsewhere

Every false teacher does away with the divinity, does a devilish thing, and puts the devil in God’s place. For every false teacher is the cause of idolatry and everlasting condemnation. For a false teacher does away with God and every man so far as he himself is concerned, not by doing away with God according to His nature but by taking Him out of the hearts of men.

John Hagee: Zionist Nut

leave a comment »

Hagee believes Israel is the center of the universe.

On yesterday’s broadcast of the “Hagee Hotline,” televangelist and Christians United For Israel founder John Hagee issued a stark warning to America that the Ebola crisis is God’s judgment on America for President Obama’s failure to adequately support Israel.  “I want every American to hear this very clearly,” Hagee said, citing Joel 3 to warn that God will judge any nation that seeks to divide up Israel and declaring that “our president is dead set on dividing Jerusalem. God is watching and he will bring America into judgment.”  “There are grounds to say that judgment has already begun,” Hagee continued, “because he, the president, has been fighting to divide Jerusalem for years now.”  “We are now experiencing the crisis of Ebola,” he stated, as well as threats from Islamic radicals and even civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri all as a result of God’s judgment on America due to Obama’s policies.

There are two kinds of people who believe Hagee: the invincibly ignorant and the insane.  If you believe him, which of those are you?  Because he doesn’t understand the Bible at all and he doesn’t teach the truth.  Accordingly, only those who themselves don’t understand the Bible thanks to invincible and impenetrable ignorance or just plain insanity are his followers.

A ‘Blessing’ By Joel Osteen Is Really Nothing But a Curse

with 2 comments

Annise Parker, the newly-elected happens-to-be-lesbian mayor of Houston was sworn in Monday and the opening prayer was given by … Rev. Joel Osteen.

Is your head spinning? Osteen heads the nation’s most mega of evangelical non-denominational megachurches, Lakewood Church in Houston where about 45,000 people cycle through a revamped sports stadium for services every weekend.

Osteen has been all over telling folks (Larry King, Whoopi Goldberg) for years that homosexuality is not “God’s best.” I presume he means “God’s best choice” because otherwise I’m lost in the dropped or implied rest of the sentence. But “God’s best” is phrase Osteen never finishes so I’m just guessing….

Etc.

Why did Joel do it?  Because he always has his finger in the wind and whichever way popular thought blows, so does he.  But a ‘blessing’ by Osteen is really a curse- because such a heretic is incapable of authentic blessing.  But I suppose the ‘blessing’ of a heretic is something other heretics would treasure.

The Stupidest ‘Holiday’ on the Calendar is Just Around the Corner…

It should be banned.  It being ‘Halloween’.  Or at least renamed to ‘beggars being trained by beggars to beg for things they don’t need that are only going to go to waste and learning to go through life with their little hands out expecting something for nothing’.
