WHAT DO WE LEARN FROM HERETICS?
By Steve Van Nattan
heretic of Christendom, and every heathen religious leader, teaches us something.
Those who believe this rubbish will go to hell.
If your alleged Christianity is ruled, inspired or managed by ANY person who lived since the death of the last Apostle, John, you are the disciple of a heretic.
If you live by a system of rules, regulations, laws, or doctrines which are not DIRECTLY STATED in the Bible, you are a heretic.
If any church system or denomination has your loyalty and total obedience in matters not clearly stated in the Bible, you are a heretic.
And, the following list will help you see how various human teachers and egomaniac popelets have pulled this off.
We learned from Kate that touching is the best way to pass devils to her victims. Kurt Koch met with Kuhlman, and she tried to slay him in the spirit while he was silently praying for God's protection. He did not slay. Kuhlman's response, "I see you have the same power I do." Which means she had power all right, demonic power.
We also learn that Kuhlman was the greatest inspiration of Benny Hinn when he first started preaching.
WATCH HER FLATTERY TRICKS WITH SID ROTH
I believe that Sid Roth was demonized by Kuhlman and has been making a fool of himself ever since on his TV show by chasing the supernatural any way he can find it. The word that fits Kuhlman is FLUFFY. Fluffy preaching with intense drama and very light weight doctrine.
We learned from Joe that God is in heaven having perpetual copulation with his wives. We also learned that good godly men have a whole flock of wives providing endless delights for the libido of the Mormon man about the house. Joe also promised us that if we get the full treatment of Mormonism in the temple in Salt Lake City, we man will become gods when we die, and we will get to have perpetual copulation our own heaven for eternity. This rivals the 72 virgins of Mohammed. Joe and Mohammed are screaming for water right now in Hell. MORE ON JOE SMITH AND THE MORMONS HERE
Charles Taz Russell- Jehovah's Witnesses
We learned from Chuck that Jesus is not God, and you can do a lot better if you leave you job as a shoe salesman and invent a new religion. He also taught his Jehovah's Witnesses in their Kingdom Hall that if they do not exhaust themselves going door to door propagating for the cause, they will not get into the best heaven.
MORE ON CHUCK AND THE JWs HERE
We learned from Ken that being a 33rd degree Freemason, and believing your penis is God, does not in any way inhibit a successful faith healer. We also learn that the sign of Baphomet, a Masonic hand sign of Satan, is the sign to use while preaching heresy.
Ron taught us that cute little electronic machines can measure you inner being and help you empty your pockets into the general fund.
Ron examines a new convert who was unable to pay the membership fee.
William Marion Branham- Oneness Pentecostal
We learn from Willy the B that anytime an accident or disaster happens, a woman is at the bottom of it. We learn that Eve had sex with the Serpent. We learn that contemporary ministers cannot be trusted to teach the exclusive doctrines of Branham. They must be read verbatim, including Branham's hick burp grammar, by a leader of the local church. Otherwise, they must be delivered in church services by Saint Wollensak (tape recorder), or Saint CD Player in the church's computer.
Branham also claimed to have a halo when he preached. I too have a halo, as you can see, and Willy the B has nothing on me.
And now, grab hold of your chair folks, you can listen to the Master Guru Branham courtesy of Saint YouTube HERE.
Mary Baker Eddy of Christian Science-
We learned from Mary Baker Eddy Glover Patterson Fry that being a loser at marriage need not prevent one from making a hit as a bogus health promoter. We also learn that pain and sickness are all in your mind. When you bang your shin on the bed post, the pain is all in your imagination. Think hard thoughts about pain being an illusion, and your shin will feel fine at once.
Benny Hinn- Charismatic
We learned from Ben the Bum that there are nine members in the Godhead. We also learn that being a loser at marriage, and being remarried after the divorce, like other ministers such as Charles Stanley, Hal Lindsey, and Jimmy Bakker, does not disqualify you from continuing as a minister of the saints of God. The teachings of Jesus on this topic were definitely off and spurious and added to the canon by some Pharisee who had been tossed out the door of his cabin in Galilee.
Benny Hinn also flashed the Satanic sign of Baphomet when he preached. Savvy Bible believers call this casting devils into the congregation. MORE ON BENNY HERE
Ellen G White of the Seventh Day Adventists-
We learned from Ellen G White that you cannot successfully capture dim bulb idiots with just the Bible. You need your own special revelation, and it is OK to plagiarize it from someone else. We learned that coffee is wicked, even though it is a powerful antioxidant with health benefits, and we learned that eating meat is evil, even though Jesus told Peter on the housetop to kill and eat all manner of animals and creeping things. We also learn that keeping Sunday as the Lord's Day is the Mark of the Beast, even though the mark is literally said in the Bible to be on the hand of forehead. Do not write "Sunday" on your forehead! MORE ON ELLEN THE W HERE
We learned from Bob Thieme that people are really suckers for a self-exalting theologian in a military uniform. We also learned that if you pastor does not know Greek you should abandon him at once and order Bob Theime's tapes or CDs for your preaching.
"He may be understood as a product of dispensational methodology gone to seed, military style discipline and organization, Cold War sensibilities, and a kind of intellectual hubris by which one creates his own system and then sets himself up as the only expert over it." SOURCE
Jeremiah A Wright- Racist preacher
We learned that young sodomites in the Chicago church must have a "beard" loser wife to help them fool God into thinking they are straight. Sometimes this works so well that the sodomite and his lady beard make it all the way into high political office. We also learned that all Christian churches must have an Islamic and Marxist Manifesto added to their Christian statement of faith. We also learned that all the deacons in the local church should be carrying a gun Sunday morning to protect the offering.
Amy Semple McPhearson- Charismatic
The video above tells a story of an egomaniac who fooled thousands, and her Foursquare Gospel legacy perpetuates the myth.
We learned from Amy that when you drop in church attendance, just move in with some cool dude for a few weeks, enjoy some inspired fornication, and then later appear to the church in a burlap outfit and claim you were out in the desert fasting and becoming much more spiritual. We also learned from Amy that effective preachers ride into church on a Harley Davidson, and they milk a cow on the platform, all this to show they are savvy with the life of the masses and the asses.
Jack Hyles- Baptist (cough cough)
We learned that a successful preacher prays to his mother, asking her to pray to Jesus for him every time he preaches. We also learned that it is possible to personally lead 300 people a week to Christ. The math shows that this gave Jack and about 25 minutes per convert, what with Jack's traveling and guest speaking schedule which he reviews everywhere he goes to show how wonderful he is.
Jack Schaap of Hammond First Baptist- Baptist
We learned from Schaap, heir to the kingdom of Jack Hyles, that if you take under age teens out of state and bed them down you will end up preaching to the inside of a prison cell. We also learned from Jack how to polish that shaft. VIDEO HERE
We learned from these freaks that Heile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, was the Messiah, even though Salassie totally rejected their homage and professed faith in Jesus Christ exclusively.
We learned from Harold, we learned from Harold, that the Rapture is just around the corner, that the Rapture is just around the corner, and Jesus is come soon, and Jesus is coming soon............ TWICE TWICE.
Joel Osteen- The I Am heretic
We learned from Joel the Teeth that you are the Great I Am. We learned that preachers need to go on TV shows with Satan worshippers like Oprah Winfrey to preach how much potential the fallen godless sinner has in him. HERE IS JOE THE GREAT I AM.
We learned from Ricky that faggots must be welcomed into the Lord's Church and hugged generously by men and boys. We learned that a truly effective minister will join Davos, an elite one world club of godless do-gooders who intend to make the world a utopia without Jesus Christ. They use Warren as a sort of porch monkey to add Christianized philosophy to the mix at annual Davos gatherings. VIDEO OF WARREN AT DAVOS Implied in the video is that the church cannot win the world for Christ without government and big business. Note all the vocabulary that is totally alien to the Bible.
We learned from John that the Christian's old nature is eradicated, and if he still sins, it is a clear sign that he was never born again. We also learned that anyone who claims to be King James Bible only is a blithering idiot and has no knowledge of wise erudite scholarly thoughts. We learned that the NIV and NASB, though they remove huge blocks of text from the Greek New Testament, are far more reliable than the KJV. We learned also that you really need a wise Greek scholar to really help you understand the Word of God. The Holy Spirit simply cannot teach a Bible believing peasant Biblical truth.
we learn from Mac that in the account of King Saul and the witch of Endor, when
Saul saw Samuel in person as the Bible states, Samuel was actually a demon. This
is how easy it is to correct the Bible if you went to Talbot Seminary.
We learned from Mike that when you have sex with your wife, you are worshipping God.
We also learned that babies need to be spanked soundly the first time they cry without permission.
In practically every video of Jacob Prasch, and in practically every book he writes, the chances of Prasch mentioning the disturbing false teaching of the ‘demonic’ Nephilim is almost certain.
Jacob Prasch teaches the exact same teaching as Chuck Missler (who just happens to be a friend of his) – that in Genesis 6 demons came down and had sexual relations with woman on earth and produced the half-demon Nephilim. This is false teaching, it is not true, and in practically each and every video, conference and book Jacob Prasch tells us ‘his opinion’ over and over and over again, brainwashing an unsuspecting audience.
Why does Prasch not examine the scriptures to find the truth of the matter? The answer is, Prasch uses the Midrash, a paganized Jewish ancient writing which is demonic. What is so important about this false Nephilim teaching that he must keep mentioning it?
So, does the Bible teach that angels have penises?
Jesus answers in a discussion he had with the Sadducees.
Mark 12:18 Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying,
19 Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
20 Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.
21 And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.
22 And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.
23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.
24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
No one in heaven has a penis. When the angels fell to earth long ago with Lucifer, God did NOT give them penises so that they could rape human women. God is not some blithering idiot old Dutch uncle who plays tricks on his people.
The whole point is to terrorize his listeners. Prasch forces the believer in his heresy to come to him for survival methods for the day, always soon soon soon, when Nephilim are trying to rape our daughters.
This is the Jack LaLanne of preaching. We learn that no preacher is worth anything until he becomes hyperactive to the point of hyperventilation. Kevin really keeps on the move while he preaches, LIKE HERE.
Do you suppose Kevin could preach from a boat like Jesus without falling overboard? Jesus could walk on water, so he could have run all over the lake as he preached, but he SAT and preached. Any preacher who sits and teaches will never be respected, and anytime the congregation has to stand all the way through the sermon while the preacher sits, well, that is blasphemy, right? Matthew 13:2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
If old Kevin had to sit still for an hour he would self-destruct and pass into eternity in a million bits and pieces.
We learn from Rob that the preaching of the Gospel and the teachings of Jesus have destroyed the Church, and we need to let the culture around us define the Christian message.
Thus, if sodomites scream for a Christian definition which justifies their genital depravity, Rob Bell will tailor make a Christian definition of Sodomy as part of their salvation.
Thus, the Apostle Paul tells us that Rob Bell is a faggot:
Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 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:
27 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 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Whatever you take pleasure in, and insert into your belief system, defines what you really are. Since Bell not only approves of sodomy, but he is eagerly looking forward to doing gay marriages in his church, we conclude that Bell is possessed of devils.
Pope Francis- Roman Catholic
We learned from Pope Pancho, the pimp of Satan, that Fundamentalist Christians need to be watched-- they may be terrorists. We also learned that faith and total life commitment to the doctrine of Climate Change is now part of your salvation, and to deny Climate Change is to damn your soul forever to Hell.
Pope Pancho also teaches us that Christian ministers need to pamper and schmooze pagan world leaders in order to be qualified to serve Satan as the Antichrist.
Patriarch Movement- ANYONE in it
We learned from the modern Patriarch Movement gurus that Christian wives must be kept barefoot and pregnant until they die in child birth. Meanwhile, Doug the P can chase young girls and bed them down while the wife is busy making babies to conquer the world. We learned from Doug the P that the Church should stone adulterers today, but when he was found in adultery, well, the doctrine was revised lest he be stoned. Real Patriarchs get stoned on Bohemian Ale.
We also learn from the Patriarchal Movement preachers that the ultimate solution to sin in the modern age is death in the order of John Calvin, the patron devil of the Patriarchal Movement. Calvin burned a heretic at the stake, ordering up green wood so the man would burn and die slowly.
We attended a Reformed Baptist church for some time, and the people had many commendable qualities. But, one thing that provoked my soul was that the women were quarantined from the men, and they had no opportunity to even praise the Lord out loud in the services. Most of them qualified for the "barefoot and pregnant" distinction. Beware of preachers who hammer down the women in the Lord's Church and relegate them to be baby making machines.
We learned from Bill that all you need as a parent, to have wonderful kids, is to attend Billy's Basic Youth Conflicts, go home with the big red book, and lay it on your coffee table. Your friends will be impressed, and Billy will enlist your daughter to help in the home office and service his libido. Billy also showed us how to let your brother the faggot write the Big Red Book.
Billy also taught us how to defend adulterers and pedophiles when he defended the Dugger family AFTER they admitted guilt.
If we deny our sins, Willy the G will justify us in his next newsletter.
You may wonder why I mix up these various people, from Sai Baba to John MacArthur. The reason is that the false religions are an easy study to a Bible believer. But, the cultic men who are off in just one of two areas of Christian truth are extremely dangerous because so much of what they say is true. The faithful man of God will warn the sheep of all of these errant men, even if they are 95% right.
44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane,
and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment.....
There are NO gray areas with God. All things are either Holy of profane. This is how we judge it for your sake.
So, you need to understand that there are also no degrees of being wrong. When you preach or teach the Bible, and you are off in one doctrine, you are just as "off" as the Dalai Lama or Sai Baba. Far more harm is done to true Christians by the creeps in pulpits who are close to the truth.
1. Cultic leaders love the preeminence.
3 John 1:9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
10 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.
11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.
The Internet is rampant with those who love to have the preeminence among the viewers. This is why every Tuesday the world will end from a collision with Nibiru, an earthquake, a nuclear war, or by being attacked from aliens from behind Jupiter. The preeminence is also gained by using Sharia Baptist Law and Standards to foist on the pew peasants, forcing them to submit to the gurus of the church house Sharia.
2. Cultic leaders compare themselves with other men, not Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
13 But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you.
The worst boasters in Christendom are Fundamental Baptists. These preachers go to pastors' conferences, stand around the foyer before each meeting, and brag about how many souls got saved, how many church buses they send out for Sunday School rug rats, and how many missionaries they support at a whopping $15 a month each.
I went to one of these conferences, and I looked around the foyer. In each corner was a power circle with a wonder boy who had the gift to wow other preachers standing around him with his braggy stories of self-exaltation. But, the wonder boy of them all took the center of the foyer, and he had a circle of other pastors whom he had in awe of his erudition and classy body language. This is the highest form of evil in the Baptist movement..... self-exaltation.
But, then I looked around some more. Standing alone over by the door was one lone preacher. I went over and started talking. I asked him how the Lord was working with him. He said he had a little country church with maybe fifteen people, and it was not going anywhere. I asked him if the people were faithful and were growing in the use of the Word of God. He lit up and told me of several victories in people's lives due to the preaching and teaching of the Word. I told him that this was all God expected of him, that he was faithful and seeing fruit from using his spiritual gift, and I told him most of those preachers in the power circles around the room were lying like troopers about themselves. He smiled and relaxed, and I felt I had served my brother. Through the day, every time we passed walking somewhere the brother smiled.
Christian guruism makes for gaga chumps who follow the guru like dumb asses on the one hand, and for lonely honest people who don't want to leave the simplicity in Christ and are brutally marginalized for it on the other hand.
The next time you preacher stands up in the pulpit and starts bragging up your church as if all the other churches in town were lazy slobs and heretics, walk out.
Let us also remember that all other religious leaders, whether Christian or pagan, who boast of their church or denomination or Sharia Standards are NOT like Jesus. Find me one place where Jesus bragged on his disciples or his followers. Bah
3. Cultic leaders have an indispensable doctrine.
This doctrine is totally unique and is essential to be one of the approved faithful. This is done by starting with Bible based Christianity as a draw for the gullible, to which is added a necessary fiction. Thus, one cannot be 100% right with God unless he believes the Christian truth PLUS the fiction.
2 Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
4. Cultic leaders present a superior intellect to awe the masses.
Many Christian based heretics have some degree in theology, often from a respected University or Seminary. They use this to give the impression that they are well qualified to find fictional doctrines by using the Bible as a source book. Among many others, Bob Thieme, Dr. Gene Scott, Doug Phillips, John MacArthur, Bill Gothard, and Rick Warren are classic examples. It seems their scholarly accomplishments must be accepted as a valid basis to convince we the peasants to follow them without question.
Even better, start and own your own university like Jerry Falwell, the Gospel blimp of Lynchburg, Virginia.
Now, in other world religions and cults the guru himself is central, and no effort is made to validate the cult based on scholarship. This is also true in some Christian cults. Joseph Smith, William Marion Branham, Oral Roberts, and Kenneth Copeland are examples of a hick from the hills coming to town, setting up a big tent, and doing spectacles and wonders to validate himself. The Charismatic Movement is rampant with illiterate hick burps who did well as cult leaders.
It was only in about 1966 that the Charismatic Movement decided they needed a real theological apologetic. They gathered some of their most potent theologians, men with at least a BA from Tijuanna Tech, and made a big show at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. From that day forward they had a theological base. But that was 66 years AFTER the old illiterate Black Preacher in LA stuck his head in a butter box and came out chattering in tongues for the first time in 1900 years. When any movement diddles around for years before defining itself from the Bible, THAT is a cult.
The rest of the cultic and religious world is based in the personality of the prophet, pope, or guru. This is the case with Pope Francis, Mohammed, Guru Sai Baba, and Yogi Bananas. They had the masses so in awe of them that they needed no doctrine, and when the doctrine obstructed a clear view of the prophet, the prophet or Pope simply wrote some new revelation from the alleged gods, and once again all attention was on the big man.
Along with the intellectual aura, this sort of guru uses extremely pedantic and overly precise manners of speech to sound like he is of an entirely different breed of genius than you are.
Here is a video that combines all of the hallmarks of a cult, a man who mixes up Jesus Christ and Mohammed, and a man with the slow measured pompous speech of a master cultic guru.
CAUTION: If you are a sucker for smooth talkers, please move on and leave this video alone.
It is astounding that an alleged Baptist church would
bring this blasphemer into their pulpit.
Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
5. Cultic leaders are ego maniacs and often have a raging soul.
Dr. Gene Scott, master cultist and angry man
Jake Hess made the downward journey to the cesspool
of Satan and hit bottom in this performance.
Raging pastor, Jim Sandridge, Immanuel Baptist Church of Skiatook,
assaults the sheep in wolf-like fashion.
This is not a Baptist preacher..... this is a devil airing all the dirty laundry of a local church.
How is this different than the rage of an Islamic Mullah?
6. Cultic leaders always have
a second agenda.
To list a few, they have huge bank accounts and great mansions, they sexually use the young ladies who follow them, they drive their workers to mental collapse, and they find ways to exalt themselves in the world at large among political and business personalities. They are often boasting of meeting with secular world leaders, especially when they visit Israel, and they will flash a photo of themselves with Netanyahu on the cover of their rag.
Photo: John Hagee under the glow of Netanyahu.
Here below is a video of Kenneth Copeland blessing Donald Trump. Copeland is clearly enthralled with Trump, and Copeland is charmed with the joy of calling down mightily blessings on this man mostly famous for building big casinos and trading in his wives for the latest sexy new model. What blasphemy of the God of the Bible. Also, note the church house blond whore hanging on Trump's arm and praying down things on him which are impossible due to Trump's godless heritage. These Charismatic flakes all get a great rush from touching and feeling. This is sensual, and it is demonic.
It would have been very helpful if Copeland had stayed where he was in 1957 when his hit record, "Pledge of Love," hit #17 on the Pop Music charts. COPELAND SINGING PLEDGE OF LOVE. Poor Copeland, Pat Boone had already taken out a patent on this genre.
So, does your preacher or wonder boy have a second agenda? Jack Schaap and Jimmy Swaggart sure had a second agenda with their libido and the church house ladies. Why do you hang around such a man?
2 Peter 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose (their) judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and
some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
"....unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ" means the minister may be right and he may be wrong, but the Word of God is the ONLY standard by which to judge the minister. When the minister and the Word of God do not agree, or when the minister adds some novel invention to the Truth, the minister is a wolf unless he repents. FLEE AT ONCE
AND, TELL A FRIEND
You have an obligation to pass on ALL of your experiences with demonized preachers and gurus. It is not enough to walk away and to self-righteously compliment yourself for catching another pulpit pimp of Lucifer. Watch this.....
Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
19 For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.
Verse 17 says, "MARK THEM." This word in the Greek is an active noun which is not done until you 1) Aim at them, and 2) put a mark on them. Some of you watch for the purple ink on the meat you buy. You know what "prime" and "choice" and "Grade A" means, and you are thankful for the meat inspector who went before you and made a wise judgment of the quality of that piece of roast.
All of your Christian friends need to be warned. Will you tell them what you have learned about various heretic preachers. Will you stamp that preacher openly until the purple ink of God's Word screams "heretic" or "devilish"?
LETTERS FROM READERS
Dear Brother Van and family,
Upon your suggestion, I just watched the youtube video "How To Set Your Own Biblical Standards". It is truly excellent as you say. For many years I attended very conservative Baptist churches. I thought to be a "good" Baptist I must strictly adhere to whatever rules my pastor put forth from the pulpit, even if I didn't believe in my heart that some of those rules were necessarily biblical.
Whe to those who would question his authority!
One Sunday the pastor actually said, "We are the best and most God fearing church in this town because our ladies wear only dresses and our men come to church in a suit and tie." That did it for me. I was so angry by that prideful statement that I garnered the courage to leave and I never looked back. Thank you for sharing the video.
I am anxious for my current pastor to view it. I know he will appreciate it very much as he believes the very same things.
Y'all have a blessed and safe day!
Sincerely in Christ Jesus,
