Dan Haseltine of Jars of Clay Supports Sexual Immorality Via Sodomy and Sodomy Unions

Fast forward to 2014, and frontman Dan Haseltine is on Twitterexpressing support for marriage equality and forcing his followers to have a really hard conversation about why many of them are so unwilling to see their LGBT brothers and sisters as humans:
Contemporary Christian music isn’t a format where one might think to look for vocal supporters of same-sex marriage, but as with anything else times are changing. Dan Haseltine, front-man for the popular Christian band Jars of Clay, yesterday took to his Twitter account in a series of posts supportive of same-sex marriage, posting “Not meaning to stir things up BUT… is there a non-speculative or non ‘slippery slope’ reason why gays shouldn’t marry? I don’t hear one.” He went on to write “I’m trying to make sense of the conservative argument. But it doesn’t hold up to basic scrutiny. Feels akin to women’s suffrage. I just don’t see a negative effect to allowing gay marriage. No societal breakdown, no war on traditional marriage. ?? Anyone?”
Haseltine compares the issue to civil rights struggles in the past, and asserts regarding Biblical arguments against same-sex marriage that “I don’t think scripture ‘clearly’ states much of anything regarding morality.” He goes on to write that “I think the vast interpretation has left room for people to deal inhumanly and unlovingly toward others that don’t fit their guidelines” and that “I don’t particularly care about Scriptures stance on what is ‘wrong.’ I care more about how it says we should treat people.”
Increasingly we have "Christians" who reject clear Scripture in favor of the politically correct, yet demonic lie of sodomy being acceptable.

Whether it is through pastors, conference speakers, musicians, or authors, it MATTERS what  and  to whom you are exposing yourself to.

You cannot be of two minds, Christian. You MUST choose: God's way or the Devil's way; God's Word or Satan's lie.

1Ki 18:21  Elijah came near to all the people and said, "How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him." But the people did not answer him a word.

In the patriarchs (Genesis 19:1-28) - In the Law of Moses (Leviticus 18:2220:13) - In the Prophets (Ezekiel 16:46-50) - In the New Testament (Romans 1:18-271 Corinthians 6:9-10Jude 7-8)

1Co 6:9  Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 1Co 6:10  nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

Jude 1:7  just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

Rom 1:23  and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
Rom 1:24  Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
Rom 1:25  because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
Rom 1:26  For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature;
Rom 1:27  and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Rom 1:28  And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.
Rom 1:29  They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips,
Rom 1:30  slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31  foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.

Rom 1:32  Though they know God's decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. 

Faithfulness to Christ Will Stir Up Religious Rancour Despite Professed Tolerance

"He that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked” (Proverbs 29:27).

They hate him that rebuketh in the gate, and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly” (Amos 5:10).

It is the same now. Faithfulness to Christ will stir up religious rancour. In spite of the boasted liberalism of the day, men are still intolerant, and manifest their enmity just so far as they dare.

“And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me” (John 16:3).

Here the Lord traces, once more, the world’s undying ill-will to its true source: it is because they are not acquainted with the Father and the Son. Hatred and persecution of God’s children are both the consequence and the proof of the spiritual ignorance of their enemies.

Think God Uses Unbiblical Movies Like "Son of god" and "Noah" and "Heaven Is For Real" To Bring People To Christ ?

For those Christians who dare to think that seeing these "Christian" movies is a way to turn people to Christ, consider this VERY carefully:

Eph 4:17  So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, 
Eph 4:18  being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart;
Eph 4:19  and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness.
Eph 4:20  But you did not learn Christ in this way, 
Eph 4:21  if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, 

God says we do NOT learn the truth through the world's thinking and ways.

2Co 4:1  Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart,
2Co 4:2  but we have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. 
2Co 4:3  And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 
2Co 4:4  in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
2Co 4:5  For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus' sake. 


God brings people to the truth of Jesus Christ (who IS Truth), by the Word of Truth, the Gospel:

Col 1:3  We give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,
Col 1:4  since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and the love which you have for all the saints;
Col 1:5  because of the hope laid up for you in heaven, of which you previously heard in the word of truth, the gospel 
Col 1:6  which has come to you, just as in all the world also it is constantly bearing fruit and increasing, even as it has been doing in you also since the day you heard of it and understood the grace of God in truth; 

Thoughts on "Heaven Is For Real"

Yes, a cute little child can indeed lie and manipulate others. Yes, a father can also manipulate his cute little boy. Yes, Satan can deceive through both.

To sit in the seat of scoffers, literally, and to pay them money on top of that, just to "see" if what they are producing is of Christ or not, is FOOLISH. If they are NOT Christians, then it is NOT OF CHRIST. Folks, how hard is this??? I suspect people use the claim of "seeing it so I can "better" debate against it, as an excuse to see what everyone else is watching. Our credibility does not come from going to the dog's vomit, sniffing it, tasting it, and THEN pronouncing it's dog's vomit. Our credibility comes from knowing Christ and the Scriptures and doing our homework. We are not called to participate in the deeds of darkness to THEN say it is darkness.

If Satan didn't get to some "Christians" through "The Passion of the 'Christ' ", "Son of god", or "Noah", his next attempt is through a toddler. If that won't work, there's the next "Bible" movie coming out in December called "Exodus: gods and kings". If you don't think this is an attack of the sufficiency and faithfulness of Scripture and the thrice holiness of God, you are already deceived.

It's not a matter of opinion to sit in the seat of scoffers and give heretics like TD Jakes and pro-Roman Catholics like the Burpos who blaspheme Christ Jesus. It is sin.

 This is blasphemy and there is no need to go and PAY to sit in the seat of scoffers and mock God and Scripture. That would yes, make it sin to do so.

Todd Burpo claims that in Colton's experience, Mary goes from kneeling before the throne to standing next to Jesus on the throne:

TD Jakes, a modalist (ancient heresy that denies the Trinity) and Word of Faith heretic is a producer of the movie.


"But now, the movie is taking flak from a very unexpected source. Prominent Baptist pastor and syndicated radio host, John MacArthur spoke to Good Morning America. He said, " I'm convinced that the entire movie and book is a hoax. It has nothing to do with Christianity. It has nothing to do with The Bible."


MacArthur said, "Let's say a dozen books written by people who have been to Heaven recently and come back. Every single one of them describes it differently.""

Easter In Australia: father and son share a precious moment

When Homofacism and Liberals Clash With Islam

Homofacists are upset with the buying of the Beverly Hills Hotel by the Sultan of Bruni:

"The Southeast Asian nation of Brunei will institute a revised penal code on April 22 that includes "stoning to death" for a broad range of sexual offenses, according to a United Nations news release on April 11. The country's leader, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, had announced plans last October to implement the code, which applies only to Muslims, The Associated Press reported at the time. 
Bolkiah controls Brunei Investment Agency, which counts the Dorchester Group as a subsidiary. The Dorchester Group owns The Dorchester Collection, which owns The Beverly Hills Hotel. Other hotels in the Dorchester Collection include The Hotel Bel-Air in L.A., 45 Park Lane in London and Le Meurice in Paris."

This is the reality of what I've been saying for years now: the liberals who demand everyone "coexist" with Islam will find out how intolerant Islam really is. 
Yet these same homofacists and liberals are full of violent hatred of Christians when Christians don't call for the stoning of anyone.
I doubt they will force the Sultan and Bruni to serve the sodomites, like they do Christians.....

Weirder and Werider: the tweets of John Piper


I want joy = I want to be joyful. I want a biscuit ≠ I want to be a biscuit. Be clear: the heart's state ≠ the heart's object.

Sadly all who retweeted and responded just followed this pied piper in his stupid nonsense as if it was deep.

Moultnomah's Sister Publishing Company Publishes Sodomite Book

    
    (Photo source)

WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group is planning to release, through its liberal sister imprint Convergent Books, a manuscript paradoxically titled God and the Gay ChristianThe Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships.

The book’s author, Matthew Vines, is a homosexual activist and Bible revisionist known for manipulating Christian terminology to advance the counter-Christian homosexualist agenda.
Despite his frequent use of a Christian-like lexicon, Vines surprisingly admits to running an apostate enterprise that he calls The Reformation Project. An unabashed denier of Biblical teaching on sexual morality, Vines has publicly acknowledged that his goal is to “reform church teaching on sexual orientation and gender identity.” The book is scheduled to be published on April 22, 2014....
In truth, it appears that WaterBrook Multnomah and Convergent are effectively one and the same – same head, same staff, same offices, same printers, and even the same ink....
Multnomah is a long-trusted name in the world of Christian publishing. It is now part of WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group. Over the years, the company has published scores of Biblically orthodox works by authentic Christ-followers like Randy Alcorn, Kay Arthur, and Dr. David Jeremiah. The company has also published manuscripts by Mother Teresa.
WaterBrook Multnomah and the pro-“gay” Convergent are supposedly sister imprints with the same parent company, Random House.
“Cobb told Christian Retailing that he ‘doesn’t see any impact’ from Convergent Books on WaterBrook Press and Multnomah Books. ‘They will continue to publish with the same mission and scope as before, he said.”
So, not only does Convergent have the same head as WaterBrook Multnomah (Steve Cobb); it also has the same body (staffers) and, apparently, the same everything else. Convergent is simply WaterBrook Multnomah by another name.

The Truth Matters

"Be ye warned, then, against falling into the meanness of compromise, for compromise is nothing better than varnished rebellion against God, a mockery of his claims, and an insult to his judgment." 
"It is well to understand that we are to be “first pure, then peaceable.” 
"Our peaceableness is never to be a compact with sin, or toleration of evil."
"I fear that, sometimes, in our endeavours to be sweet in disposition, we have not been strong in principle. “Charity” is a word that is greatly cried up nowadays; but, often, it means that, in trying to be courteous, we have also been traitorous."
"It is exceedingly difficult in these times to preserve one’s fidelity before God and one’s fraternity among men. Should not the former be preferred to the latter if both cannot be maintained? We think so."
"But we are so gentle and quiet, we do not use strong language about other people’s opinions; but let men go to hell out of charity to them."
"Do you not know that a person who is silent when a wrong thing is said or done may become a participator in the sin?"
"Do not say of such-and-such an error, “Oh, it is a mere matter of opinion.” If it be a matter of opinion to-day, it will be a matter of practice tomorrow. No man has an error of judgment, without sooner or later having an error in practice."
"If you love Christ but little, you will hate error but little. If you do not love the truth at all, you will not hate error at all."
"Complicity with error will take from the best of men the power to enter any successful protest against it."
"To pursue union at the expense of truth is treason to the Lord Jesus."

The Blasphemy of the Burpos' Heaven

More proof that "Heaven Is For Real" by Todd Burpo is not only erroneous, but blasphemous and therefore demonic:

"Todd is even able to report to Catholic friends that Colton "saw Mary kneeling before the throne of God and at other times standing beside Jesus." "

Rick Warren's Luvfest of the Roman Catholic Church

"People will listen to what we say if they like what they see." ~Rick Warren on the Pope. (13 minutes in).

"As our new pope, he was very, very symbolic." ~Rick Warren (13:11)

" I love the headline: "If you love Pope Francis, you'll love Jesus." (13:28) ~Rick Warren

This is John Piper's "theologically sound" "brother in Christ".

~Interview between EWTN (RCC) and Rick Warren, part 2 (this interview occurred this month, a year after the suicide of Matthew Warren).

This is just another example of how Warren knows exactly what names to drop and practices to mention (candle lighting when writing PDL---this is the first I've heard of this) according to his audience. With Piper he told Piper the answers he knew he needed to hear (as I said, back in 2010 when this happened). 
Why doesn't anyone see that Warren is a huckster? 
I'll say this, at least Warren acknowledges that he is "all things to all men" although NOT biblical--NOT in the way Paul meant nor practiced. Warren is every kind of pagan b/c that is who he's reaching. After admitting he's all things to all people (here it's pro-Roman Catholic/Desert mystics), he then talks about being "authenticity". His shining example: Francis of the Vatican. "He is doing everything right". 

This is John Piper's brother in Christ who is theologically sound--and interestingly they BOTH commend the position of the pope as well as the false gospel of Rome.

Here (18:00 time mark) is Warren parading around how much he gives "back" from his salary. This is always, nearly without exception, mentioned in every article written on Warren. Here he's telling everyone about how good he is by how much he "gives back". Remember, 1) we are not Jews and therefore are not called to tithe at all, 2) Jesus said we are not to announce how much we give, but rather do not even let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, and 3) the percentages of what he makes on a 10 year running best seller is going to be MILLIONS of dollars. His pretence of generosity and humility is transparent, even after speaking about "authenticity".

"Every time I give, I break the tie of materialism", says the million dollar pastor of a multi-million dollar church. (18:30)

"The way you get rid of getting is giving," (18:32)

"Every time I give my heart grows bigger and every time I give I become more like Jesus" (18:35)
says the man who pumps out a new book every few years and then goes on speaking engagements, and rolls out new programs, and desperately tries to entice more people into his multi-million dollar "church".

At the time of this interview, he gives 91% of his income back to...not sure what. Wow, God must really be impressed. 

"I've been playing this [tithing] game--or this deal with God--for 38 years." (19:14)

"I'm an avid fan of EWTN" (34:29) He goes on to then say:
"I make no bones about it; I probably watch it more than any other Christian channel....because you have more shows that relate to history ...and and if you don't understand the roots of our faith, that God has been working for 2,000 years regardless of what brand believer you are...God has been working for 2,000 years in His church and if you don't have those roots you're like the cut-flower syndrome or you're a tumble weed. One of my favorite shows...is the Chapel of Divine Mercy. Which I love and if I've had a very stressful day, I have tapped and Kay and I will come home and we'll put it on and both sit back and relax and worship and and in that time of reflection meditation and quietness I find myself renewed and restored. Thank you for keeping and replaying the Chapel of Divine Mercy....thank you Mother Angelica."
