Eugene Peterson, the man behind The Message translation of the Bible, says he would perform a same-sex marriage ceremony if asked. In an interview with Jonathan Merritt on Religion News, Peterson describes how his views on homosexuality have changed over his career.

“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.” 2 Timothy 4:3,4 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: In 1993, Eugene Peterson wrote his Laodicean epic ‘The Message’ bible translation which immediately became a best-seller. Among the notable “updates” in his phony bible was the deletion of the phrase “Lord Jesus” which occurs in the King James 115 times. Now Peterson has made the not-so-stunning declaration that he now approves of same-sex marriage and that God blesses the LGBT just the way they are because they are “good people”. They are dropping like flies, people, as they fulfill the end time prophecies about the collapse of the Church spoken of by Paul, John and Jesus. 

“I wouldn’t have said this 20 years ago, but now I know a lot of people who are gay and lesbian, and they seem to have as good a spiritual life as I do. I think that kind of debate about lesbians and gays might be over. People who disapprove of it, they’ll probably just go to another church. So we’re in a transition, and I think it’s a transition for the best, for the good. I don’t think it’s something that you can parade, but it’s not a right or wrong thing as far as I’m concerned,” Peterson says.

Merritt specifically asked Peterson about the LGBT issues plaguing Peterson’s denomination, Presbyterians.

Charisma News previously reported the denomination, which capitulated to the gay agenda, has less than 10,000 churches after an exodus of Bible-believing pastors. In 2015, 34,000 black churches broke ties with the PCUSA, among others.

“I haven’t had a lot of experience with it,” Eugene Peterson says of LGBT members in his church. “But I have been in churches when I was an associate pastor where there were several women who were lesbians. They didn’t make a big deal about it. I’d go and visit them, and it never came up for them. They just assumed that they were as Christian as everybody else in the church.

“In my own congregation—when I left, we had about 500 people—I don’t think we ever really made a big deal out of it. When I left, the minister of music left. She’d been there ever since I had been there. There we were, looking for a new minister of music. One of the young people that had grown up under my pastorship, he was a high school teacher and a musician. When he found out about the opening, he showed up in church one day and stood up and said, “I’d like to apply for the job of music director here, and I’m gay.” We didn’t have any gay people in the whole congregation. Well, some of them weren’t openly gay. But I was so pleased with the congregation. Nobody made any questions about it. And he was a really good musician.”

Merritt also interviewed famed evangelical Jen Hatmaker about her stance on the LGBT community.

Hatmaker told Merritt:

From a civil rights and civil liberties side and from just a human being side, any two adults have the right to choose who they want to love. And they should be afforded the same legal protections as any of us. I would never wish anything less for my gay friends.

From a spiritual perspective, since gay marriage is legal in all 50 states, our communities have plenty of gay couples who, just like the rest of us, need marriage support and parenting help and Christian community. They are either going to find those resources in the church or they are not.

Not only are these our neighbors and friends, but they are brothers and sisters in Christ. They are adopted into the same family as the rest of us, and the church hasn’t treated the LGBT community like family. We have to do better.

The 84-year-old Peterson says he’s done traveling, preaching and writing. He says As Kingfishers Catch Fire: A Conversation on the Ways of God Formed by the Words of God will be his last.

“I just feel like there’s a sense of completion, or maybe satisfaction. I think I’ve done a better job of everything I’d done before in this book. I might do something else, but I don’t think so. These days, I write a lot of letters. I’m still keeping up with people and answering their questions or responding to what they are doing. I think it’s more just a sense of completion,” Peterson says. source

Are You Aware That Doctors All Across America Are Chemically Castrating Children And Saying Kids Know They Are Transgender From Birth?

Published

A harrowing video from the Boston Children’s Hospital claims that children can know that they are transgender ‘from the minute they were born, practically.’

We sit back and rightly judge the Nazi atrocities in the Holocaust for the unprecedented evil that they were, but guess what? The Holocaust set the precedent, as does the book of Lamentations, and with that we now know what the precedent for true evil is. One great example of true evil were the medical experiments by the ‘Angel of Death’, Josef Mengele, on the young Jewish children he had kidnapped at gunpoint. Did Mengele perform chemical and physical castration on children? He sure did. Funny how in 2022, doing the exact same thing is now called ‘transgender rights’, and is applied to babies and toddlers. That’s the Devil, alive and well and doing business with your child.

“For these things I weep; mine eye, mine eye runneth down with water, because the comforter that should relieve my soul is far from me: my children are desolate, because the enemy prevailed.” Lamentations 1:16 (KJB)

We say that children under the age of 18-years old are too immature to drink alcoholic beverages, and they are. We say they are too immature to own a gun, and they are. We say they are too immature to vote in our national elections, and they are. Yet somehow, miraculously, very young children know they are transgender? That a 3-year old boy who picks up his sister’s Barbie doll is doing it because he knows he’s really a girl? What moron who has ever been a parent for 5 minutes would think that? That a 6-year old girl is playing with her brother’s army men is a signal she knows she should have been born a boy? You would have to be a Ph.D. to be that stupid. OK, so if you, doctor, are not a moron, and let’s assume you are not, then that makes you a Nazi no better than Josef Mengele.

Boston Children’s Hospital: Children Know They Are Transgender ‘the Minute They Were Born’

FROM BREITBART NEWS: The video was made by Dr. Jeremi Carswell, the Director of the Gender Multispeciality Service at the Boston Children’s Hospital. The Boston Children’s Hospital is associated with Harvard University and was the first to establish a clinic that specifically focused on “transgender health” in a pediatric setting.

In the video, Carswell makes the startling claim that “A child will often know that they are transgender from the moment that they have any ability to express themselves.” She continues and doubles down, remarking, “They knew from the minute they were born, practically.” Breitbart News previously revealed that Carswell has received thousands of dollars in compensation for consulting on behalf of Endo Pharmaceuticals, a company that makes a drug that is used off-label as a puberty blocker for children who are considered to be transgender.

An academic paper, authored in part by Carswell, had to be corrected after it was incorrectly asserted that the researchers had no conflict of interest.

Carswell is just one of many doctors to have received significant compensation from the companies that manufacture puberty blockers.

Carswell’s consultation regarded the drug Supprelin LA, which is used as a puberty blocker. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently warned that Supprelin LA can cause swelling of the brain and loss of vision.

This is why your kids think they’re transgender

In the video, Carswell cites a number of different behaviors that supposedly provide evidence that a child is transgender and may be suitable to undergo permanent, life-altering surgery or medical intervention, including playing with “opposite gender toys,” refusing to get a haircut, or trying on a sibling’s clothing. Breitbart News previously reported that the Boston Children’s Hospital advertised “gender-affirming” hysterectomies for adolescents in a video. Breitbart News previously uncovered that children’s hospitals throughout America, particularly those that offer sex change operations and other medical interventions to gender dysphoric minors, had sponsored their local pride parades.

The United Nations Has Decreed That We Must Start Consuming Insects As Food, Better Check Your Nutrition Labels To See If You’re Eating Cricket Flour

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The United Nations 2030 Agenda For Sustainable Development has determined that for the planet to survive, we need to start eating bugs, insects and cricket flour.

Here’s a fun fact, in accordance with the United Nations Agenda 2030 mandate for a sustainable global system, one of the new things you will start seeing in the products you purchase will be foodstuffs made from bugs and insects. If the package of what you’re eating says ‘sustainable’, it’s highly likely you’re eating bugs. Welcome to the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Living, have you worked up an appetite yet?

“And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.” Leviticus 11:41 (KJB)

The United Nations web site says: “This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We are determined to protect the planet from degradation, including through sustainable consumption and production, sustainably managing its natural resources and taking urgent action on climate change, so that it can support the needs of the present and future generations.” So what if your Doritos have been made with cricket flour? You won’t taste the difference. So what if the UN decrees you can no longer eat meat, but a lab-grown, frankenfood substitute instead? Don’t be such a baby, and after awhile, you’ll enjoy eating rats and roaches while the elites dine on Porterhouse and lobster. War is peace, baby.

The Unbelievable Ways Dried Crickets Are Turning Up in Your Food

FROM PREVENTION: Bugs are trending…all over my office. I’m buried in samples of foods made from crickets: cricket cookies, tortilla chips, protein bars, even all-purpose flour that apparently has nutty undertones and works well in banana bread. I’m intrigued and slightly weirded out, but most of all I’m wondering: Are bugs in food just a fleeting fad for the Western world, a nostalgic nod to more primeval populations who have been eating insects for centuries? Or does it have the potential to become part of the American palate, akin to sushi in the 1970s? I decide to investigate.

While eating bugs is common in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, it wasn’t until last May that the Western world—and, naturally, a bunch of start-ups—began taking edible insects seriously. That’s when the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization released a report stating that by 2050, the world will need to feed 2 billion extra people, given the jump in population growth. One of its solutions: Eat more protein-rich bugs, which, if they become part of the mainstream global diet, could greatly affect the environment. Crickets emit 100 times fewer greenhouse gases than cattle, and raising a pound of crickets requires 1 gallon of water and 2 pounds of feed, while raising a pound of beef requires 2,000 gallons of water and 25 pounds of feed.

Cheap food is cool. But, uh, how do we make insects part of the mainstream in the US, where we’d much rather spray them with poison than sauté them in a pan? That’s where creative start-ups come in. Earlier this year, a woman named Megan Miller co-founded Bitty Foods in San Francisco, selling grain-free, cricket-flour-based cookies in flavors like orange-ginger and chocolate-cardamom. She says the cookies are a “gateway product,” meaning their sugary form can help disguise the fact that you’re eating bugs (and the gateway is apparently working, as I’m now on my third cookie since starting to write this article). “The key is turning crickets into something familiar,” Miller says. “So we slow roast them and mill them into a powder that can be incorporated into basically anything.” READ MORE

In 2012, We Warned You Of The Coming Second American Civil War, In 2022 It’s Now Arrived. We Here At NTEB Have Picked A Side, Have You?

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Here at NTEB, we’ve picked a side in this second American Civil War, and the side that we choose to fight on is the side preaching and teaching the Kingdom of God.

America is now a nation where, whatever party is in power, they use that power to control and marginalize the other side. This has always been done, of course, but never so nakedly and open as it is here in 2022. During the Obama years, history records him as the first ‘post-American president’, and through him were sown the seeds for the America’s second civil war. Our nation is irretrievably ripped down the middle, with no hope of either side ever coming to a reconciliation unless it is formed under Antichrist.

“And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.” Jeremiah 18:9,10 (KJB)

Of course, this split down the middle of America is not organic, it was placed there intentionally by the same New World Order operatives that installed the dementia-addled Joe Biden in the White House as the pretend president. When the FBI raided Donald Trump’s Florida residence, Mar-a-Lago earlier this week, it had very little to do with recovering some missing paperwork, and everything to do with sending a message. What’s the message? That the party in power will do whatever it wants, whenever it wants, and your ‘constitutional rights’ will be trampled and overridden to accomplish that purpose. If they were truly interested in justice, those same FBI agents would have already raided Hunter Biden’s residence and shown us what’s on that laptop. How he calls his dad, Joe Biden, “pedo peter” in private family messages. If the FBI has time to go through Melania Trump’s underwear drawer, they certainly have time to take a look at Hunter Biden’s laptop. But they won’t, because what they’d find there will implicate Joe Biden in massive financial wrongdoing and influence peddling. Do a Google search for “riots in America”, and all you will see are links related to January 6th and Trump supporters. The 6 months worth of 2020 riots waged by ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter which caused over $2 billion in damages almost never appear. Funny how that works, isn’t it?

Here at NTEB, we’ve picked a side in this Civil War, and the side that we choose to fight on is the side that is preaching and teaching the Kingdom of God. We reject the carnal weapons of conventional warfare, choosing instead the word of God with which to fight our battles. This is a war for the souls of men and women, a war obscured by the endless, relentless, 60-seconds-per-minute Breaking News!!! that is forced in our face all day every day. Right now Democrats are calling the shots, eventually the Republicans will regain power, but nothing changes except that things progressively get worse. God has no interest in making America ‘great again’, and in fact, looks like He left us to our own devices a while ago.

Look in your King James Bible as hard as you can, and you won’t find a single reference to the United States of America. Oh sure, you find some things that have some distant commonality, but nothing you can make a real case for. Possibly Ezekiel 19:6, or maybe Nahum 2:13, but you won’t find a peep coming out of Daniel or Revelation about America, and that’s where the real action is. So consider this article your PSA about staying the course in the end times, not getting pulled into a prefabricated domestic war that is meaningless when compared to eternity and the Judgment Seat of Christ.
