Hillsong Refuses To Take A Public Stand On LGBT Same-Sex Marriage

We are reaching the hour of midnight in Laodicea

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:26,27

It’s sad, actually, how Brian Houston of Hillsong United cannot seem to muster up a definite position on same-sex relationships while the bible that he claims to teach and follow is astonishingly clear and precise about how God feels about it. We think Brian Houston’s inability to take a stand is not an intellectual or spiritual issue, but a financial one. I am sure he has nightmares about what would happen if he started preaching the truth about same-sex marriage, and then had to watch in stunned horror as his LGBT tithing congregants all bolted for the door at the same time. Just like in any other business, Hillsong is all about the bottom line – the almighty dollar.

Mr. Houston, if you are reading this, you have no guts, no gumption, and worst of all, no gospel.

Southern Baptist Theological Seminary president Albert Mohler declared from his blog in June, “There is no third way on [same-sex issues].” But Brian Houston, pastor of Hillsong Church, a global family of congregations comprising more than 30,000 weekly attendees and millions of worship-music album sales, apparently disagrees with Mohler. At least for now.

At a news conference for the Hillsong Conference in New York City Thursday, Michael Paulson of The New York Times asked Houston to clarify his church’s position on same-sex marriage. But Houston would not offer a definitive answer, instead saying that it was “an ongoing conversation” among church leaders, and they were “on the journey with it.”

Houston says that he considers three things when evaluating the topic: “There’s the world we live in, there’s the weight we live with, and there’s the Word we live by.”

He notes that the Western world is shifting its thinking on this issue, and churches are struggling to stay relevant. The weight we live in, he added, refers to a context in which LGBT young people may feel rejected or shunned by churches, often leading to depression and suicide. But when Houston began speaking about the word we live by or “what the Bible says,” he refused to offer a concrete position.

(Click here for the unofficial transcript of Houston’s full answer.)

“It would be much easier if you could feel like all of those three just easily lined up. But they don’t necessarily.” Houston said. “The real issues in people’s lives are too important for us to just reduce it down to a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer in a media outlet.”

Ever wonder what the Church of Laodicea would look like? Here it is:

Carl Lentz, pastor of Hillsong’s New York City location, made similar statements on CNN in June, saying Hillsong in New York City has “a lot of gay men and women” and he hopes it stays that way. But he declines to address the matter in public because, in part, Jesus never did.

“Jesus was in the thick of an era where homosexuality, just like it is today, was widely prevalent,” Lentz told CNN. “And I’m still waiting for someone to show me the quote where Jesus addressed it on the record in front of people.  You won’t find it, because He never did.”

Lentz’s wife, Laura, chimed in: “It’s not our place to tell anyone how they should live. That’s their journey.”

No doubt Mohler and other conservative evangelicals will find such answers disconcerting if not downright dangerous to what they believe is the biblical position. If the leaders of Hillsong, one of the most influential evangelical ministry conglomerates in the world, refuse to draw lines on these issues, it could influence other churches and pastors to reconsider their own positions.

And that is why this issue has become a litmus test for many on the left and right. Because in a moment when so much is at stake, a non-statement statement is, well, quite a statement.

Just In Time For Saturnalia, Umm, I Mean Christmas, It’s The Holy Spirit Talking Board For You To Have A ‘Guaranteed Demon-Free’ Séance With Jesus

The Holy Spirit Board with its ‘Magic Cross planchette with metallic mirrored finish’ is straight from the pit of Hell.

I really wish this article today on the Holy Spirit Board was something from the Babylon Bee, but sadly, it is not. It’s hard to say what’s more demonic, the original Ouija board with its satanic gothic styling cues, or this one that presents Jesus in a mocking way, and drags the Holy Spirit into just for fun. The worst part is the number of Laodicean Christian churches that have already ordered it and are planning to have Fall Festival family fun nights. On sale at Amazon right now.

“Abstain from all appearance of evil.” 1 Thessalonians 5:22 (KJB)

This straight from the boardroom of Hell board game tells you how you can “communicate directly with Jesus Christ!” and “get all the answers straight from the man himself!”. Just for fun it comes complete with something called a ‘Magic Cross planchette’ shaped, of course, not like the biblical cross that the Romans crucified Jesus on, but styled after the Babylonian cross dating back to the rule of everyone’s favorite type of Antichrist, King Nebuchadnezzar.

This is wickedness, this is evil, and this is something that no Christian, no matter how backslidden, should have anything to do with. There is a website called ChurchLeaders.com, and they say that they are ‘dedicated to resourcing, informing, and connecting a community of church leaders for greater Kingdom impact worldwide.’ Well, they wrote a whole article on the Holy Spirit Board, including links to videos from the game manufacturer, and never once spoke a single word against it. Why not? This is where we are folks, on Day 976 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve.

Senate Republicans Side With Democrats To Help Pass The ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ That Forces States To Recognize Same-Sex Marriages

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Twelve Senate Republicans voted with Democrats on Wednesday for the far-left ‘Respect for Marriage Act,’ which is reportedly designed to provide federal protections for same-sex and interracial marriages.

It’s one thing to get hyped up on the marketing of political parties, like the ‘Red Wave’ that wasn’t, and it’s another thing completely to wake up the next morning and face the grim reality that nothing has changed. Here we are after the Midterms, and what do we see? Senate Republicans siding with Democrats to pass the ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ that protects same-sex marriage. Yay!!! Make America Great Again!! Umm, no. America’s fate has been signed, sealed and about to be delivered. That ‘red wave’ you were expecting is actually going to be fire and blood coming down from God out of Heaven in judgement on this lost nation we live in.

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:28,29 (KJB)

Just imagine for a moment that Donald Trump, who has just declared his candidacy for the 2024 presidential race, wins in a landslide. Does that make America great again? No, it does not and it will not. If the ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ came across President Trump’s desk, he would absolutely sign it. How do I know that? Because in 2016 he courted the LGBTQIA+ vote like any other politician. An America that was ‘great again’ would be against those things because God is against those things. Sorry to burst your bubble, kiddies, but it’s time someone told you the truth.

12 Senate Republicans Vote With Democrats for Far-Left ‘Respect for Marriage Act’

FROM BREITBART NEWS: Lawmakers voted for the measure 62-37 after a bipartisan group of senators made changes to the bill to include a clause about religious liberty. With the amendment agreed upon, the bill will go back to the House before going to President Joe Biden. The White House has expressed support for the measure.

The 12 Republicans who voted for the bill include Sens. Roy Blunt (R-MO), Richard Burr (R-NC), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Susan Collins (R-ME), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rob Portman (R-OH), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Todd Young (R-IN).

The Respect for Marriage Act (RFMA) was introduced following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, due to Democrats’ unfounded concerns that the Supreme Court could use the Dobbs decision to overrule the Court’s Obergefell gay marriage decisionThe measure passed the House in July with the help of 47 Republicans, but Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) agreed to postpone a vote until after the midterms so that lawmakers from both sides of the aisle could attempt to address religious liberty concerns.

RFMA would repeal the Clinton-era Defense of Marriage Act and would require the federal government to recognize any marriage that was “valid in the place where entered into.” The bill would also require every state to recognize every same-sex marriage that “is valid in the State where the marriage was entered into.”

As a report from Slate noted, the bill “does not go as far as Obergefell. In that decision, the Supreme Court directed every state to license same-sex marriages—that is, to issue a marriage certificate to same-sex couples. The RFMA does not codify this component of Obergefell.” According to the report:

So the RFMA does not force Texas to issue a marriage certificate to a same-sex couple. But it does force Texas to recognize a marriage certificate issued to a same-sex couple by New Mexico. In a post-Obergefell world, a same-sex couple in Texas could drive to New Mexico, obtain a certificate, and force Texas to respect their marriage like any other.

The bill does have a “private right of action” clause, which would allow “any person who is harmed by a violation of subsection (b)…[to] bring a civil action in the appropriate district court of the United States against the person who violated such a subsection for declaratory and injunctive relief.” The law would also allow an attorney general to bring civil action against any person who violates the law.  READ MORE

End Times Milestone For Miss America Pageant Organization As Biological Man Brían Nguyen Is Crowned ‘Miss Greater Derry 2023’ In New Hampshire

First Biological Male Brían Nguyen Wins ‘Miss Greater Derry,’ A Beauty Pageant Held By The Miss America Organization

Since NTEB started back in 2009, we have warned you over and over again that the LGBTQIA+ Movement was a radical, militaristic movement planning to erase gender lines, and recruit children through Public School indoctrination programs. In the early days, people would write to us, mockingly deriding our assessment of this situation, calling us ‘conspiracy theory nuts’. However starting in 2020, those emails have since ceased, and now people write to us weeping over what America has become.

“Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.” Genesis 5:2 (KJB)

For the record, there are only two genders, three if you count situations where birth defects will produce a person caught in the middle, but obviously that is not another gender. It is a sobering thought to realize that that rainbow flag they march under is actually a battle flag of a people prepared for war, isn’t it? When we started in 2009, approximately 2.3% of Americans identified as LGBTQ, in 2022 that has risen to almost 8%! What could account for a near 300% increase? Recruitment of school children at every level, starting at 3-years old and all the way up to high school. We warned you this was coming, we pleaded with you to stand up and stand against this rising tide of darkness, but sadly you did not. The ‘Red Wave’ never arrived last Tuesday, but the Rainbow Wave is washing over America, drowning this nation and dragging it to the bottom of the sea. What do the Churches have to say about it?  All I hear is *crickets*, lukewarm, Laodicean crickets cowering behind the 4 walls of the church.

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:16 (KJB)

Why is there no outrage as biological male is awarded local Miss America crown, why are the churches silent?

FROM EVIE MAGAZINE: Brían Nguyen became the first transgender to win a title under the Miss America Organization. He was named Miss Greater Derry 2023, landing him a crown and scholarship, as announced this past Sunday. The Miss Greater Derry Scholarship Program provides scholarships to “young women” between the ages of 17 and 24.

“My name is Brían Nguyen, I am 19 years old, and I am currently a freshman at Nashua Community College majoring in Business Management,” writes Nguyen on Instagram. The teen also mentions their initiative titled, “#QueensAreEverywhere.” “This is a media movement that helps the next generation develop self-confidence, realize their potential, and become the leaders of their destiny,” Nguyen explains.

Reactions from social media users are mixed, and some women believe that Nguyen’s win was a reflection of “internalized misogyny.” “Y’all know how the Left likes to talk about internalized misogyny?” asks @dess_ri , “This is what it ACTUALLY looks like.”

“Yes Miss America will no longer be about women. Men want to make us irrelevant,” comments @cturiano1969.

Just this week, the U.S. Court announced that Miss United States of America LLC cannot be forced to include transgenders as contestants since it would obstruct the organization’s ability to express the “ideal vision of American womanhood.” According to the ruling, they should be allowed to enforce their “natural born female rule” because the First Amendment enables them to do so.

The conclusion came after a lawsuit was filed by a transwoman named Anita Green. “I believe United States of America Miss is on the wrong side of history for choosing to actively discriminate against transgender people, but the road to creating meaningful change has always been a long and bumpy one,” Green said. “Transgender women are women. My message has always been consistent and my message is this: every person has beauty.” READ MORE
