Paula White: Pentebabbleist Heretic

She’s at it again, spewing her pentebabbleist rubbish:

@RightWingWatch tweets

Presidential spiritual adviser Paula White says Christians “are mandated by God” to send thousands of dollars to help Jim Bakker build a new TV studio and their donations will be counted by “a Department of Treasury in Heaven” that will determine their eternal reward.

Calling all suckers.  Calling all suckers.

A Note to My Readers

If some of you (I know most aren’t, because most are too intelligent or they wouldn’t visit here) buy Paula White, archheretic, false teacher, pentebabbleist, prosperity gospel con artist’s new book (or any book by her) that’s being promoted by Franklin Graham, Robert Jeffress and others, let it be known that you have swallowed falsehood and lies and furthermore are enabling and supporting the vilest sort of pseudo-Christian garbage.

Heretics promote heresy, which is why Jeffress et al are promoting White.  Don’t join them.

Ralph Reed is a Heretic, And No Christian

Ralph Reed calls for 2020 obedience to Trump

One of Donald Trump’s most prominent Christian supporters will argue in a book due out before the 2020 general election that American evangelicals “have a moral obligation to enthusiastically back” the president.

The book’s author, Faith and Freedom Coalition founder Ralph Reed, became a loyal foot soldier for Trump immediately after he nabbed the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 — commanding hordes of white evangelical voters from his perch on the candidate’s religious advisory board to trust that the New York businessman would grow the economy, defend religious freedom and dismantle federal protections for abortion, if elected.

Anyone who heeds Reed isn’t a Christian either for one very simple reason- Christians have one Lord, and it isn’t Trump. Or any other politician or person.

All of this political fealty is damnable heresy and the proponents of it are damnable heretics.

That One Time An Ignorant ‘Preacher’ Said that The King James is the Bible and You Don’t Need Hebrew or Greek

Hate yourself?  If you answered yes, then watch this clip.  Your head will implode.  This is the kind of ignorance that Fundamentalists are famous for.  This sort of ignorance really is beyond help.  And the sad thing is, there are professional theologians who also think that knowing the biblical languages is unimportant.  And Seminaries that don’t require them.  And graduate programs in biblical studies that don’t require them.  Consequently, they are absolutely no different than the ignorant preacher in this clip.

Every Philosopher, Ever, In One Meme

Pentebabbleist the Fireman Pseudo-prophet At it Again With his Nutbag Ramblings

As time goes on, Mark Taylor‘s prophecies are getting increasingly incoherent. It’s almost as if he needs to convolute his prophecies more and more so it’s more difficult to point out the fact that they never come true. Either way, we have a new warning from Taylor, and it involves human traffickers, the Red Cross, and the Old Testament god Baal.

According to Taylor, Baal “feeds off the blood of the innocent,” namely aborted fetuses. But thanks to increased restrictions to abortions access in the US, that food source is “running dry.” That’s where the Red Cross comes in.

“We all know the Red Cross is corrupt. They’re into all of this,” he said in a video clip flagged by Right Wing Watch, adding that “they are literally grabbing people … in broad daylight.”

“We are entering into one of the most dangerous phases of this fight,” he continued. “I tell people, ‘I don’t care if you are a Christian or not, if you don’t have a concealed weapons permit, you need to get one. You need to learn how to use a weapon and you need to be carrying it right now because this is a very dangerous time that we are going to be entering into.’”

Watch out for a mass blood drive orchestrated by America’s blood banks, Taylor says, “because their sources are running out, so they can use that human blood for sacrifices, they can use it for drinking it, or whatever it is they do.”

Imbecile. The dilettante loon knows nothing of Baalism.  Or anything.  Firefighters should fight fires, not talk about theology.  They’re awful at it.  So, Mark, here’s your Dilly, pentebabbleist nutbag.

David Bentley Hart- Unitarian Universalist

DBH is halfway there.  He’s already a universalist.  Next up, he will reject trinitarianism and go full bore UU.

We are watching the evolution of a heretic.  DBH now exalts his own sense of things over all other determinative factors.  His intellect, he believes, is the judge and jury of every theological matter and the judgment of the church is irrelevant.

Yes, the evolution of a heretic.

Wrong- For Many Reasons

If you get your theology from tee-shirts… well you’re a heretic.

More Pentebabbleist Nutbaggery: Paula White Expels Demons From the White House…

Which raises the obvious question- why is Trump still there?

President Trump’s spiritual advisor Paula White seems to have one primary function: to expel demons from the White House. Now there’s another video showing her doing exactly that, thanks to the folks over at Right Wing Watch.

During a sermon at Morris Cerullo’s church in California last month, White declared the White House to be covered by “the superior blood of Jesus.”

“It doesn’t take any spirit of discernment or knowledge or wisdom to see that we have runaway generations,” White said in the flagged by RWW. “Opioid epidemic, suicide epidemic, sexual identity epidemic, where do you want me to start? It’s all over the place. The problem is not the world: We can blame it on the liberal educational system that infiltrated the Ivy Leagues … Right now, we’re fighting bills in California—in third grade, in fifth grade—they put certain things on certain vegetables and teach them how to insert them in certain parts of the anatomy.”

It’s these practices, among other things that she incoherently rattled off, that compels White to anoint the “perimeters” of the White House with the Holy Spirit.

“You better believe I’m up there singing the name of Jesus,” she said. “You better believe I’m walking around those parameters saying, ‘I lift this up and I dedicate every ounce of this place as holy ground and I dedicate it by the superior blood of Jesus.’ And every door that God opens for me, I invoke the name of Jesus.”  White then remotely performed an exorcism on the White House.

Etc.  These clowns bring nothing but disrepute on Christianity.  They are themselves tools of evil.  Pentebabbleists… what an unhinged passel of loons.

Reason 8,903 to Avoid ‘Storefront’ Pentebabbleist ‘Churches’ – This One Lured Homeless People in and Forced them To Panhandle for Cash

Inside a beige bungalow in California’s Imperial Valley with a well-trimmed lawn and beds of pink flowers, the 17-year-old girl felt imprisoned. The doors were locked from the inside. The windows were nailed shut.

Like the other homeless and vulnerable people who came to Imperial Valley Ministries seeking shelter, food and rehab, the teenager was not allowed to leave without supervision, was not allowed to contact her family, to “discuss things of the world” or read any book but the Bible, according to federal prosecutors. Those who lived in the church’s group homes had to turn over their money and welfare benefits, their identification and all of their personal belongings, so that even if they wanted to leave, they couldn’t, prosecutors said.

Then, once they settled in, they were allegedly forced to panhandle up to nine hours a day for six days a week in parking lots and on street corners — turning over every penny they earned to the church.

Read the whole. Shame on the cult. And shame on those who think it’s not a cult.

Jerry Falwell Denies the Facts- But That Backfires, Because There’s Photographic Evidence

Jerry Falwell Jr. vehemently denied that he appeared in photos taken at a Miami Beach nightclub — even after shown the evidence — but that strategy appears to have backfired.

The evangelical Liberty University and its president were the subject of a bombshell report published Monday by Politico, where insiders described Falwell’s salacious language and apparent self-dealing.

The report by university alumnus Brandon Ambrosio also examined photographs taken of Falwell and his son Trey Falwell at the Miami Beach nightclub Wall, which university sources said he tried to make disappear.

The photos taken July 19, 2014, during a performance by popular Swedish DJ John Dahlbäck were shared online by World Red Eye, an outlet that documents Miami’s nightlife scene.

Falwell denied the photos existed in a statement to Ambrosio before the Politico report was published, saying no photos had been taken of him at Wall or any other nightclub, and insisted the reporter was mistaken even after learning the photos had been obtained for the article.

“If you show me the picture, I can probably help you out,” Falwell wrote in a statement. “I think you are making some incorrect assumptions, or have been told false things or are seeing something that was photo-shopped.”

Falwell again insisted the photos had been doctored after he was shown images of him and his son in the crowd at Wall, and denied that he had ever tried to get the photos taken offline.

That denial — and Falwell’s suggestion that World Red Eye had manipulated the images — prompted the photography website’s founder to respond.

“For 21 years, I have maintained an impeccable reputation for documenting Miami Beach’s storied social scene,” wrote Seth Browarnik, founder World Red Eye.

Read the rest.  Falwell is a Trump supporter because Trump and Falwell have many things in common.  Let that sink in, ‘Evangelicals’.

Read this tweet as well and enjoy the photos.

Blasphemy

More Pentebabbleist Nutbaggery

These people are mentally ill.

During an appearance on The MC Files this Monday, “Firefighter Prophet” Mark Taylor and host Chris McDonald posited a new theory regarding Hurricane Dorian, which is currently threatening the U.S. with 110 mph maximum sustained winds.

According to McDonald, it’s no coincidence that the hurricane is making news headlines immediately after the Justice Department announced that it would not charge former FBI Director James Comey for allegedly leaking his Trump memos to the press.

“When you get these stories and all of a sudden—boom—you’ve got an almost Category 6 storm,” McDonald said in a video clip flagged by Right Wing Watch. “It does not take a genius to figure out it’s called a distraction and it’s called a false flag.”

Taylor agreed.

“These guys are going to be indicted, they are going to go to jail, they are going to go to prison so it’s coming, guys, we just have to be patient,” Taylor said. “But it’s not by coincidence that the hordes of chaos have been released because they know their time is short.”

“This is one of the most dangerous times right now for us, because this is war,” he continued. “That hurricane right there, that is a declaration of war against the people. What do the shootings and these hurricanes and all of these things that are being generated, what does it have to do [with anything]? It has to do with one thing in particular: the same thing Hitler did in London, England, during The Blitz. They are literally trying to kill the will of man.”

What it Looks Like When False Teachers Talk About Theology

Instead of being accurate, they prefer to be crass and imbecilic.  If you’re unsure of why the ELCA is dying, look no further.  Bolz-Weber and her ilk are killing it off as fast as they can.

More Pentebabbleist Nutbaggery: The ‘Prophetess’ Who Controls the Weather

Ket Kerr has a poor track record when it comes to getting natural disasters to heed her commands, but that’s not stopping her from calling upon God to “pull down Satan’s power,” i.e., Hurricane Dorian — which is threatening President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Kerr claims to have a direct line to God. She describes her website The Revelation Zone as a source for “continual revelation on Heaven, the spirit realm” and “how to operate” in the spirit realm. On her Facebook page, which has just over 40,000 followers, she describes herself as a “revelator,” which just another word for “prophet.”

In a Facebook video posted to her page this Wednesday, Kerr declared to her “weather warrior” followers that she and they are now “taking authority over the weather,” which something “we all know Jesus can do.”

“And in case you’re wondering why we even have violent types of weather? Satan,” she said. “He has the ability to jump into these storms or earthquakes because we don’t take our true power over him. But that’s changing.”

According to Kerr, Dorian turning from a tropical storm to a hurricane means nothing because “I have authority over it. I will not tolerate it.”

“I command the hosts of heaven to go in there, right now, and pull down all of Satan’s power which is using this storm, Dorian, to bring destruction.”

Oh pentebabbleists… you are amusing, I give you that.  You’re frauds, liars, fake Christians, and theological ignoramuses, but you are amusing.

More Pentebabbleist Nutbaggery: ‘Educated Women Make Terrible Wives and Mothers’

Pentebabbleists gonna babble I reckon.

GOP Rep. Sean Duffy announced he’s resigning from Congress because his wife, Fox News commentator Rachel Campos-Duffy is pregnant with their ninth child — a child who will likely have to undergo heart surgery soon after birth. According to hyper misogynist and far-right Christian radio host Jesse Lee Peterson, that’s a bad move.  “Why does she have to work?” Peterson asked in a video clip flagged by Right Wing Watch. “Why doesn’t she stay home, be a wife, a mother, and help raise the children? And now this guy has to step down because this baby apparently has some issues … He shouldn’t quit his job for that. I guarantee you she is making him do it.”

Peterson went on to slam Campos-Duffy as “a selfish, egotistical woman,” adding that her husband is “too beta male to make her do the right thing.”  “This woman is a selfish woman,” Peterson continued. “She has nine kids and she’s trying to be like a man … Women, God has given you the gift of being the assistant of the man, to watch over his children, to make sure things are well at home, to be there when the kids come home, to cook, clean, provide in that way. There is no greater job for a woman than that. And I don’t know why these men would marry these women if they don’t have that mindset. It’s like being married to another man. It’s selfishness, it’s not love.”

Peterson then advised Rep. Duffy that he needs to be out “providing” while his wife stays at home.  “I wouldn’t recommend you marry these educated women with these degrees; they don’t make for good wives and mothers.”

Apparently enough people listen to this ignoramus that he can maintain his absurd radio show.  The problem is never really the ignorant mouthpiece.  The problem is their imbecilic enablers and supporters.

Nope

If you want to ‘instagram-worthy’ the Bible to make it appealing to a subgroup, you’re not doing theology, you’re doing marketing.  And the Bible doesn’t need you to market it.  You don’t transform it.  It transforms you.  Even if you’re a millennial.

So, nope.

What is a ‘Progressive’ Christian, Really?

The modern ‘progressive’ ‘Christian’ is simply and nothing more than a reinvigoration of the Cathari. There’s nothing new under the sun. Especially when it comes to heretical sects. So when someone self identifies as a ‘progressive’ believer, I instantly know they are Cathari.

Eric Metaxas Thinks God Uses Mass Shootings to Call People to Repentance

Eric Metaxas is what happens when a dilettante with an audience he doesn’t deserve opines on theological matters he doesn’t understand.

Every mass shooting seems to brings out conservative Christians eager to outdo their colleagues in the contest of who has the dumbest possible reaction to the atrocity. We’ve already heard Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrickblaming video games and a lack of forced Christianity for the El Paso shooting.

Now Christian author Eric Metaxas, … is chiming in with his own brand of faith-based _______.

This morning, he blamed the shootings on the “spirit of the anti-Christ” and then offered an odd justification for why God allows such violence to continue even if He has the power to stop it.

Stop trying to explain complex theological ideas like Providence, Eric.  You aren’t intellectually equipped for it, and it is too important to be left in the hands of rank ignorant amateurs.

There are lots of ways God calls us to repentance and prayer.  Gunmen killing children isn’t one of them.  And what a sick image of God you have.  God, our Father, wants gunmen to kill random strangers just so billy bob will pray more?  Your view is sick, and you are a sick person with a sick understanding of God, the Bible, and theology.
