Dilettante of The Year

That’s lunacy. It’s both historically ignorant and, worse, it implies that no one but English speakers have a real Bible. Utter nonsense and, frankly, demonic.

This is this year’s dilettante.

More Pentebabbleist Lunacy: The ‘Christian’ Who Says Coronavirus Won’t Hurt Us Because Trump ‘Opposes’ Abortion

During services at his Lord of Hosts church in Omaha, Nebraska, on Sunday, right-wing pastor Hank Kunneman proclaimed that God would protect the United States from the coronavirus because of President Donald Trump and his administration.

“Listen to the words that I speak to you at this moment, says the Living God,” Kunneman prophesied. “Why do you fear, United States? For I have spoke to you before, and I speak to you again. I have extended and opened a window of mercy to this nation at this time. Therefore the virus that they speak of, the prognostication, the diagnosis—my mercy is the quarantine that shall be greater than what they have spoken to you, United States.”

“Because of the administration that stands in this land, who honors me, who honors the covenants of your forefathers and of the Constitution, and because they have aligned themselves with Israel, and because they have sided on the right side of life—life in the womb, life given outside of the womb—therefore I give life to this nation, and I give mercy,” Kunneman said, on behalf of God. “Do not fear this virus, says the Spirit of God.”

Fraud.  Fake.  Fraud.

Mega Church Pastors are Greed Driven Crooks. It’s Just That Simple

Redemption Church Pastor Ron Carpenter Jr. said he was promised a retirement package of $6.25 million to be made in annual payouts of $250,000 for 25 years in a failed transition agreement with fellow megachurch pastor John Gray of Relentless Church, court documents filed in South Carolina on Friday reveal.

The documents were filed in an ongoing eviction case between Carpenter and Gray over payments for the Relentless Church campus, owned by Carpenter.

Gray was given until the end of 2019 to take his church elsewhere amid allegations that he had been “shady” and “dishonest” in executing the controversial transition agreement with the Carpenters after they passed the reins of their Redemption Church campus to him in 2018. Gray had rebranded it as Relentless Church.

Crooks.  And frauds.  True wolves, in sheep’s clothing.  The both of them.

Carpenter and his wife Hope then moved to San Jose, California, to officially become the new pastors of the 14,000-member Jubilee Christian Center, which they renamed Redemption.

According to a copy of the transition agreement cited by Greenville News, Gray was to take the role of senior pastor and then change the name of the church allowing Carpenter to take the “Redemption” name with him.

The agreement said the church’s board agreed to pay Carpenter an annual payment of $250,000 for 25 years as part of a $6.25 million retirement package. It also noted that Redemption Church also had a mortgage obligation of more than $12 million.

Redemption Church argued that Relentless Church failed to make mortgage payments to lenders, failed to pay Redemption when a lease agreement was made and failed to vacate the property as a tenant in default.

They aren’t churches, they are fraud franchises.

That’s Sickening

Then Why Didn’t He Do It At Auschwitz?

Frankly I don’t think stuff like this really happens.  And if it did, then why doesn’t it always?  Why didn’t it happen at Auschwitz?

A miraculous story of life-saving intervention is breaking from Northern Nigeria. According to Barnabas Aid, a group of 500 Nigerian Christians who converted from Islam gathered. The terrorist group Boko Harem descended and captured 76 members of the group as converts from Islam were highly targeted in their attacks. The group included men, women and children.

Four of the male leaders of the Christian group were killed after refusing to deny their faith in Christ. The widows of the men were approached with the same question. Before making their decision the children came and announced Jesus had appeared to them, assuring they would be OK according to Breaking News Christian.

Not long after the group accounts Jesus appeared again to the entire group of 72 telling them not to fear as He would protect them. He urged them to remain confident in His strength and not to renounce their faith.

The widows now with fresh confidence told Boko Harem they would not renounce Christ. As they prepared to shoot the children the Boko Harem suddenly broke into screams exclaiming “snakes!” as they fleed the scene. Some of the men appeared to die instantly.

According to Barnabas Fund, all 72 of the group survived the experience. They now live in other regions of Nigeria deemed safe for Christians to live. The local Pastor credits Jesus’ appearance to the group to the fact that these people knew no other Biblical text to visit. They are all illiterate and thus no access to scripture so Jesus provided it Himself.

I’m glad they’re ok but if Jesus did it, he should do it a lot more.  And if it didn’t happen as described, then it’s fraud.  And fraud doesn’t advance the Gospel.

Concerning Study Reveals that Fewer People are Pretending to Be Christians

A new study is worrying pastors and other evangelical leaders, as it suggests that fewer and fewer people are pretending to be Christians than ever before.

While in years past, the vast majority of the country pretended to be Christian, that number is shrinking every year, and now only a minority of the country fakes faith in Jesus Christ.

“This is extremely troubling,” said evangelical megachurch pastor Jack Lindsey. “A decade ago, our pews were full of people who went through the motions of pretending to be Christian. But now, the fake believers are all acting like the atheists they are, and our churches are shrinking because of it. If only we could have a fake revival.”

Pastors are trying to come up with ways to combat the decline of fake Christianity, from hosting big carnivals and preaching through movie franchises to serving better coffee and naming their churches after shopping malls and retirement communities. But nothing seems to be working so far, stoking fears that fake Christianity is on its way out permanently. Some have considered preaching the gospel to the unreached, but these people are obviously nuts.

“We’re in a brave new world where people don’t even bother paying lip service to a Jesus they don’t believe in, and I’m not sure I want to live in that kind of country,” said Lindsey.

The majority of Americans attend the ‘Church of the Seed Fallen On Rocky Ground’.

Church Marketing’s Goal: Just Get Them in the Doors…

Forget all that tiresome and outdated biblical stuff like ‘go into all the world and make disciples’.  That’s too hard and people just aren’t interested in that.  Instead of going deep, go as shallow as you can and get those butts in seats, because that’s what it’s all about…

Thom can teach you the latest marketing manipulations to get you a gusher of guests… (what a word to choose)…  Although the Bible never tells us to make ‘guests’, but disciples.

There Is Something Vaguely Anti-Semitic in Importing The New Testament Into The Old

As though the Old Testament has no meaning (or cannot be understood properly) without the New Testament when the truth is, the New Testament cannot be properly understood without the Old Testament.

Nope.  You aren’t the first to notice something because you’re a brilliant exegete; you’re first to notice something that no one else ever has because you’re insane.

Again, the New Testament needs the Old to be understood; but the Old doesn’t need the New.  So just let the Old Testament be the Word of God in its own right, ok?  Bloody Marcionites.

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.

‘Naked Pastor’ Hates the Church a Lot, Doesn’t He

Evidently, in his mind, the Church just hurts people and sends them off.  That, of course, is rubbish.  Sure, some Church people are vile and they are harmful.  But the grandiose and exaggerated ‘the church’ in the present ‘cartoon’ is simply intended to demonize the entire Christian faith.

Naked Pastor sure hates the Church.  I wonder why he stays in it.  And I wonder what sort of ministry he offers to his congregants.

I’m sure of one thing; if I hated the Church as much as he appears to, I would leave.  And I would change my pseudonym to ‘Naked Ex-Pastor whose goal is to demonize the Church and make you hate it as much as I do through my art’.

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.

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.

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.

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.
