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.

More Pentebabbleist Nutbaggery

In an appearance on The Jim Bakker Show earlier this month, Christian author and activist Dr. Lance Wallnau warned that there is a “witchcraft veil” being spread over the minds of Americans, thanks to the media.

“How long are you going to be in this mental fog?” Wallnau asked rhetorically. “I think America is in a Jezebel witchcraft, meaning that there’s a witchcraft veil over the minds and perception of the masses, perpetuated by the false prophesies coming thought the media mouthpiece.”

According to Wallnau, the lies coming from the mainstream media are making the “average Christian” complacent.

“I have young sons in my family, I have friend of mine — they go, ‘Dad, don’t worry about me, I get a balanced perspective. I don’t listen to just one source, I listen to MSNBC and CNN,’” he said. “I go, ‘Son, ninety-five percent of the media is owned by the left — you can’t listen to four different outlets and think you’re getting the true story — they’re all biased.’”

Wallnau then turned to Jim Bakker and encouraged him to break though “that veil” of “false prophets” created by the media, adding that he and others of his ilk have paid a heavy price for their support of President Trump.

Dear Pentebabbleists, please stay away from the bible and theology.  You don’t know what you’re doing.

More Pentebabbleist Nutbaggery

This is a weird one even by pentebabbleist standards.

Mark Taylor, also known as the “Firefighter Prophet” is taking anti-immigration rhetoric to a whole new level.

During an appearance on McFiles Network this Monday with host Christopher McDonald, Taylor said that people need to look at crossings at the US-Mexico border from a more “spiritual perspective.”

“Well, let’s look at this from a spiritual perspective here,” Taylor said. “When I wrote that prophetic word before Trump came into office about the border, it was a ‘2,000-mile demonic gate’ — now, even me as the prophetic voice writing that … I didn’t realize the depth of that.”

“You’ve got drugs, guns, human trafficking, sex trafficking, you got MS-13, you got ISIS, I mean, you got all these things that are coming in,” he continued. “Now, you have to look at this from a spiritual perspective. You’re letting in natural entities that are here to destroy the country … it’s the spiritual entities that we are trying to get rid of, guys.”

Taylor then accused churches that give safe haven to migrants of “harboring spiritual entities.”

“I wouldn’t want to walk into one of those churches right now, because they’re inviting them in, Chris,” Taylor declared. “They are literally inviting these spiritual entities, these illegal spiritual entities into their houses of worship — or, they’re not even houses of worship, it’s just a building — whatever it is, whatever you want to call it, you know what I mean? I mean, gimmie a break, they’re part of the system.”

“That’s what’s going on right now. You have to look at this from a spiritual component, how powerful this actually is. These are spiritual entities. And look, the Dark Side knows this. The Deep State is in the highest — the cabal are in the highest forms of witchcraft on earth. They know by allowing the illegals in here what they’re allowing in spiritually, Chris.”

When you combine pentebabbleism and dilettantism, you have a toxic stew of theological ignorance found nowhere else.

‘Have God’s Ear in Prayer???’…

That’s not how prayer works.  God hears the prayers he wants to hear, not prayers uttered because someone is using a book, any book.  Lifeway, stop selling junk theology.  Get some theologians on staff and stop thinking the latest marketing craze is good enough.  Stetzer is gone.  Stop acting like he would act.

 

Jim Bakker: Pentebabbleist Blasphemer

“The Jim Bakker Show” recently promoted a coin decorated with President Trump‘s face as a “point of contact” with God.

In a viral clip of the promotion, evangelical author Lance Wallnau described the $45 coin as a means for believers to establish a “point of contact” with God.

“When I asked the Lord ‘Why the coin?’ he said ‘Because when you take the coin, it’s a point of contact,’” Wallnau said in the clip, which was shared on Twitter by Right Wing Watch, which “monitors and exposes the activities of Radical Right political organizations.”

“So your faith is being released with a million other believers to pray protection and peace and wisdom and counsel over the president of the United States and over his family,” he added.

What vile blasphemy and idiotic pseudo-christianity.  Pentebabbleists… they really are profoundly theologically ignorant.

Helicopter Egg Drops…

Join us for our first annual “Eggstravanganza Easter Egg Hunt”, April 20 from 10am-1pm. for ages 2 years – 5th grade. A helicopter will drop thousands of eggs over the GCA Football field. Each age group will have their own designated time for their egg hunt. We will have a Family Fun Zone with inflatables, face painters, balloon artists and food trucks. Don’t miss this FREE event!

Ah yes- churches dropping eggs from helicopters and having pony rides and bounce houses and cotton candy on Holy Saturday. The early church did all this too because they thought Jesus’s stay in hell was just super awesome.

Nope, Jesus Wasn’t in the Notre Dame Flames

Jesus appears in these flames as much as he appears on the History Channel…

A woman has claimed she spotted the figure of Jesus Christ in the blaze which engulfed Notre Dame cathedral on Monday. Flames spread across the roof of the 850-year-old Gothic building amid extensive renovation work. But Lesley Rowan, from Alexandria in Scotland, believes she can see the holy figure among the inferno in one of the pictures taken. She told the Daily Record: “When I looked at this photo last night, I was really astounded by what I saw.

Dear Lesley, seek help.  He is not here (or on the tv).  He is risen.

This is What Passes for ‘Worship’ At Ed Young’s Cult in Dallas…

That’s right, Mr Young is shooting baskets in the ‘auditorium’ while ‘preaching’ about James….

I’d almost feel bad for the few actual Christians who attend this cult but for the fact that they should get out of Sodom.

If this is what the Church is becoming, it deserves to perish.  But it isn’t what the Church is becoming, it is what heretics are turning their congregations into.  I.e., celebrity pastor oriented cults where anything but biblical orthodoxy and orthopraxy reign.

‘Mystics on Crack: Episode 9,832’

Elisabeth of Schönau, a 12th-c Cistercian mystic, had a vision where she asked the Virgin Mary about the state of Origen’s soul. The Virgin replied that Origen’s heresies weren’t due to evil but to an over-zealous immersion in the profundities of scripture. So his soul was OK.

Via Ben Myers (who, in his defense, doesn’t think mystics did crack.  I, however, do).

Megachurches and their Prosperity Pastors Deserve Each Other: Shepherd and Sheep are All Depraved

If they were Christians this wouldn’t happen

South Carolina Pastor John Gray asked his congregation to contribute $250,000 to fix the church’s roof.

That’s after he bought his wife a Lamborghini.

However this asks comes right after Gray was scrutinized for his lavish lifestyle. He gifted his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus. “We didn’t take an easy assignment. If we wanted an easy assignment, we would start from scratch without millions of dollars in debt,” Gray said. “We took the assignment because we knew God has given us the right people to build with. I believe the best days of Relentless Church are in front of it.” “[Ron Carpenter] handed us keys. The keys were not to a paid off building, the keys were to an opportunity, an opportunity to continue the work,” Gray said. “Nothing you see is paid off. It wasn’t paid off when we got here.”

And then the most sickening bit:

“This is not a plea for money, it’s a plea for partnership so we can be what we’re supposed to be.”

What you’re supposed to be is in prison, scammer.

The Relentless Church pastor explained to his congregation that the church still had millions in debt after he took it over from former Pastor Ron Carpenter.

‘Relentless Church’. Tells you everything you need to know. ‘Took it over…’ It’s a fecking business franchise to these vermin.  They all deserve each other. If the members were Christians they wouldn’t attend the Church and if the Pastor was a Pastor he wouldn’t be fleecing the flock. They’re all there for the money. The pastor because he gets it, and the congregants because they want it.  Let them go down in flames.
