Storms? No problem. Natural disasters? Perfectly understandable. War? Man made horror. Disease? Something or other will unbind you from this life so don’t act surprised when it does. In other words, what troubles others doesn’t really trouble me (in terms of the justice of God).
For me the real question is, why does God allow heinous and vile people like this woman to become parents? That’s the real mystery, the real theodicy.
A western Pennsylvania woman has been jailed on charges that she pulled her 6-year-old daughter’s hair so hard it separated her scalp from her skull and caused bleeding. Online court records don’t list an attorney for 25-year-old Brittany Ruck, of Conway, who faces a preliminary hearing Oct. 23 on charges including aggravated assault and child endangerment. Conway police filed the charges Monday, but say they date to an incident on Aug. 27. Police say Ruck pulled the girls hair apparently because Ruck was upset that the girl couldn’t count to 12.
Why, God? Why? She looks like she wants to ask why she’s in trouble, as though she doesn’t know…
This one’s right disgusting:
During the past few months, a tear has ripped through the 3,000-seat auditorium known as Grace Cathedral. One longtime associate pastor resigned, telling friends and family he felt he had been inappropriately touched by Angley for seven years.
The dispute exploded on July 13, when Angley and two others in his camp addressed the situation in a 2½-hour open service. The service was recorded by one of the attendees and shared with the Beacon Journal.
In response to swirling accusations that he is a homosexual who has abused both his associates and members of the congregation, Angley, 93, had this to say to a large Sunday gathering. “I’m not a homosexual. God wouldn’t use a homosexual like he uses me. He calls me his prophet, and indeed I am. …
Yeah well I doubt that God calls you a prophet unless God pronounces ‘liar’ ‘prophet’.
“They called Jesus a homosexual, did you know that? And still do. Because he was with men. Oh, Mary Magdalene and a few women. But you can’t stop the people’s lies.”
Then he addressed his history of urging the males in his congregation to submit to vasectomies.
“I’ve helped so many of the boys down through the years,” he said in his slow, singsong cadence. “They had their misgivings. Sure, I’d have them uncover themselves, but I did not handle them at all.
I don’t know about you but I’ve never known an authentic pastor who insisted on looking at male genitals. Who the devil would fall for such nonsense? Why do these clearly wicked pseudo-Christians have so many deranged followers? How did the reprobate persuade them it was normal or acceptable?
‘Hey fella, come into my office, I want to check your private parts before you get that vasectomy…’ I mean seriously, what’s wrong with people????? Any sane person would flee like Joseph from Potipher’s wife.
So much, then, for the people who think doctrine doesn’t matter and dogmatic instruction irrelevant.
Apparently he ignored all those bits in the Bible about adultery… and worse, didn’t care who he hurt while he sowed his wild oats.
WSFA 12 News confirmed with church leaders, including the now former pastor of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, Juan Demetrius McFarland himself, that McFarland confessed from the pulpit a few Sundays ago that he had full blown AIDS and had slept with church members without revealing he had AIDS. Shocked and stunned, church members contacted the 12 NEWS DEFENDERS and reaction is coming in from the congregation that is still in disbelief.
McFarland didn’t hold back when he revealed to worshipers at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church on Sept. 14, that he contracted HIV in 2003 and discovered in 2008 he had AIDS. “The church was very accepting of Reverend McFarland and was willing to help him in any way possible,” a church member, who wanted to remain unnamed, explained. Once the pastor, with 23 years of leadership, started revealing more and more on the following Sundays, members and leaders say they realized he had crossed the line.
It was only AFTER he revealed even more details about his sexual immorality that they realized he crossed a line??? He wasn’t the only one not paying very much attention to morality. The women who joined him also have some explaining to do.
In a resolution read aloud at the church, leaders shared, and Pastor McFarland confirmed to WSFA 12 News, that he admitted to drug use and mishandling of church funds. And there was what members say was the ultimate shocker, described by church deacon Nathan Williams Jr. “He concealed from the church that he had knowingly engaged in adultery in the church building with female members of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church while knowingly having AIDS,” Williams said.
Oh nice. He’s a money-grubbing, AIDS spreading, drug using treasure this one. He ticked all the boxes on the ‘I’m totally unethical’ questionnaire.
There’s a new hedonistic pseudo-Christian cult in town-
It’s called Fitness Swingers, and it’s the brainchild of Cristy Parave and her husband, Dean, who dreamed up the site after reportedly having a threesome with this wife and her female friend. Apparently, the sex was just heavenly. The Florida couple, who met at a bodybuilding competition, are interested in sharing their beliefs and their spouses with others who feel similarly. They started their online network 7 years ago, and haven’t looked back. The pillars of their relationship: A commitment to their faith, to fitness, and to the ideals of the swinger lifestyle.
‘Faith’ – hardly.
Dean Parave told Barcroft Media that he doesn’t think that his swinger lifestyle conflicts with his Christian beliefs. In fact, he considers it a kind of ministry.
Because he’s an idiot who knows as much about Christian theology as a flea knows about interstellar travel.
“So far today, God hasn’t told me, ‘Dean stop that, it’s a sin. I don’t want you to do that.’ Until he does that, I’m going to keep trying to help as many people as I can,” he told Barcroft.
He wouldn’t know God’s voice if it did deign to address him. But why would he?
Christy said she needed a little convincing that it was moral at first, but now she’s totally convinced that god is on their side. “God put people on the Earth to breed and enjoy each other,” she told Barcroft. “I feel God is always with me and he has put us here for a reason.”
What a depraved image of humanity this reprobate holds! For him, people are nothing but animals intended to breed with anything nearby. Total Depravity on full display.
