Baptist Pastor Writes In USA Today That The Bible Can’t Be Trusted, And That The Church Must Accept Open LGBTQP Members In Order To Survive

The Church that Jesus Christ shed His blood to create is not inclusive, it is exclusive. Jesus says you can 'come as you are' but you can't stay as you are. I came to God 28 years ago as a hopeless drunk, and guess what? The bible is against drunkenness, so I had to quit it. Are you LGBTQP? Great, come to Jesus and get saved, the bible says God is happy to have you. But proof that you are really saved is that the Holy Spirit that started living inside when you got saved now tells you that homosexuality is a sin, and you need to ask God for grace to quit it. No born again Christian, even when they fall into sin, would ever condone sin and try to justify it. We are struggle and we all fall short. But if there is no struggle there is likely no salvation, either.

I cannot say it anymore loudly, any stronger or one bit more passionately than I have been – we are in the falling away from the truth of bible doctrine that Paul prophesied could one day happen. It is happening now, right now, today. If you’re looking for ‘proof’ stop looking, because if this doesn’t prove it to you, you are incapable of recognizing truth.

If you ever needed proof that we are knee-deep into that great time of apostasy that Paul calls the ‘falling away’, look no further. This article we present to you today will confirm that for you a hundred times over. On the USA Today site, it says that Oliver Thomas is a retired American Baptist minister and a member of USA TODAY’s Board of Contributors. He has written an article so Liberal and so Far Left that even Joel Osteen would have trouble putting his name on it. Well, maybe not.

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 (KJV)

Apostate Thomas states that the Christian church has failed in two main areas. The first area, he says, is our mistake in ‘believing the bible to be true’, and ‘taking it literally’. The second area he berates the Church is ‘getting it wrong’ on LGBTQ+P for pedophile people. Thomas says that the passages dealing with homosexuality were ‘written by men’, and as such, ‘cannot be trusted’. Shall I pause for a moment while we let this sink into your brain? Nah.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.” 2 Timothy 4:3-5 (KJV)

I cannot say it anymore loudly, any stronger or one bit more passionately than I have been – we are in the falling away from the truth of bible doctrine that Paul prophesied could one day happen. It is happening now, right now, today. If you’re looking for ‘proof’ stop looking, because if this doesn’t prove it to you, you are incapable of recognizing truth.

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:14-16 (KJV)

People, the Devil is not ‘attacking the church’, wake up! The Devil is in the Church, and he is taking it. And the lukewarm, Laodicean mess that is the Church is unable to see the enemy in their midst. Since the modern-day Laodiceans abandoned bible doctrine decades ago, their ‘sword of truth’, the preserved word of God has grown hopelessly dull and incapable of battle. This is why we here put sooooo much emphasis on knowing how to rightly divide the bible, why we preach and teach old-fashioned bible doctrine, and show you that God wrote the bible dispensationally. Because when you know these things, as the bible commands in 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV), it’s very hard to be fooled. But take away rightly dividing, doctrine and dispensationalism, and you can’t defend the bible because you don’t know the bible.

“Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.” Acts 20:28-30 (KJV)

Why do you think it is that Jesus comes back and raptures out His Church right before the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble? Here’s a reason you maybe have never considered before. What if Jesus takes the Church out in the rapture (a good thing) because we no longer preach or teach bible truth (a bad thing)? Ever think about that? Because with each passing day, and when I read stories like this that are increasing in frequency all the time, that’s what it’s starting to look like to me. The bible says that salt that has lost its saltiness is NO GOOD. Throw it out! Maybe the Rapture happens because the Church stopped being salt and light to a lost and dying world. Food for thought.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.” 2 Corinthians 5:17-19 (KJV)

The Church that Jesus Christ shed His blood to create is not inclusive, it is exclusive. Jesus says you can ‘come as you are’ but you can’t stay as you are. I came to God 28 years ago as a hopeless drunk, and guess what? The bible is against drunkenness, so after I got saved I had to quit it. Are you LGBTQP? Great, come to Jesus and get saved, the bible says God is happy to have you. But proof that you are really saved is that the Holy Spirit that started living inside when you got saved now tells you that homosexuality is a sin, and you need to ask God for grace to quit it. No born again Christian, even when they fall into sin, would ever condone sin and try to justify it. We are struggle and we all fall short. But if there is no struggle there is likely no salvation, either.

With that, I give you the latest Laodicean offering from the apostate Oliver Thomas as excerpted below. But fair warning, if you’re saved it will make you mad. If it makes you say ‘amen’, you might want to check your salvation. Seriously.

Thomas says “American churches must reject bible literalism and then admit that ‘we got it wrong’ on gay people”

FROM USA TODAY: A sad thing is happening in America. The church is killing itself. A great revelation has occurred that is bringing joy and happiness to millions, but it is being met with resistance and retrenchment from many of my colleagues inside the church.

The revelation is that LGBTQ people are just like the rest of us — only LGBTQ. They are not perverts nor are they abnormal, as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of mental health experts once declared them to be. People don’t choose their sexual orientation any more than they choose their race or gender. This is what lay behind a recent comment by Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, that Vice President Mike Pence’s quarrel — if he has one — is not with the mayor. “Your quarrel, sir,” said the openly gay Democratic presidential candidate, “is with my creator.”

PEDOPHILES ARE NOW CALLING THEMSELVES ‘MINOR ATTRACTED PERSONS’ AND WANT INCLUSION IN LGBTQ MOVEMENT

The United Methodists, one of America’s most beloved denominations, are doubling down on their opposition to gay clergy and gay marriage by threatening expulsion to congregations that don’t toe the line. The threat is particularly ominous given that the denomination — rather than the local congregations that paid for them — hold title to the church buildings. Conservative columnists like Patrick Buchanan warn of the “crackup” of Christianity.

Here’s the corner we have painted ourselves into. The Bible says it. I believe it. That settles it. Yet, the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures did not float down from heaven perfect and without error. They were written by men, and those men made mistakes. A few of the more obvious ones include the sources of inspiration for the census taken during the reign of King David (II Samuel attributes it to God, while Chronicles attributes it to Satan), the date of the crucifixion (John says it was on Passover, but MatthewMark and Luke say it was a day earlier) and the date of Abram’s pilgrimage from Mesopotamia to Canaan (Genesis says it was before the death of his father, Terah, but Acts says it was after).

Churches will continue hemorrhaging members and money at an alarming rate until we muster the courage to face the truth: We got it wrong on gays and lesbians. This shouldn’t alarm or surprise us. We have learned some things that the ancients — including Moses and Paul — simply did not know. Not even Jesus, who was fully human and therefore limited to what first century humans knew, could know about cancer, schizophrenia, atomic energy and a million other things the centuries have taught us.

It’s difficult to watch good people (and the churches are full of them) buy into the sincere but misguided notion that being a faithful Christian means accepting everything the Bible teaches. We don’t impose the death penalty on adulterers, Sabbath breakers and rebellious children. Nor do we chase women from God’s house because they are menstruating or exclude men because of their physical handicaps.

Yet all of this, and more, is commanded by the Bible. The time has come for Christians to take a deep breath and ask themselves, “What does loving my neighbor — and my enemy — as myself look like?” And then proceed accordingly. READ THE FULL ARTICLE HERE
