LGBT/JCAABP: What Will It Be? Hypocrisy Or Truth

The events of the last few days could have had the right kind of finish. There is still hope but there is much work to be done.

“Except a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

This is the basis of any believer, leader, and church that name the name of Christ.

Anytime you begin to protect an institution and people do not recognize that they are wrong, they hate it when someone points out the error of their ways. Perhaps it was just a mistake, but it is turning out to be a costly, regrettable one.
Responding to any allegation or truth in eloquence is common when you believe in yourself and in your own message, that you can do no wrong. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. It leads to Elitism, Entitlement, Empowerment, and Expediency, the four “E’s” of ministry solidifying the house of pride and arrogance in leaders. Praise of God keeps this kind of pride in check.
What could have happened? Some humility.
Bishop Ellis could have said, “Folks, a grave error was committed. A laps of judgment opened the door for known homosexuals to take advantage of our organization.”
Or they could have stopped them right at the door and tell OC Allen, you need to repent and we can help you get right with the Lord if you so desire. However, if you insist on living in the sin of homosexuality, until you repent, we can only offer you Jesus because in sin, you do not know Him.Just image a powerful outcome such as this. But, alas, what happens.
A counter attack against the truth of the Word from GCMWatch.
Sometimes, folk, especially leaders, can’t see God coming with a big red hat on.

Having said that, a couple of lessons come to mind.

Lesson One: Never put out a common statement that lines up with the Bible and then turn your back on it.

In a flurry of blogs, in particular from GCMWatch, and, allegedly, after watching an unprecedented episode of strong arm tactics by a known practicing homosexual, OC Allen against the Joint College of African American Pentecostal Bishops, we have watched the leader of this organization, Bishop Delano Ellis, use every bit of influence and eloquence to quell the raging sea.

The stormy perverted seas of LGBT in the church.

Notice that I said, in the church.

From within the ranks of this organization, we have seen individuals speak their minds about confronting “fraudulent” or “fake” Bishops that enter the ranks of the College. Such open discussion was on the Joint College’s FB page. It goes to show you that there are people that want to speak with their minds about the conviction of the Scriptures as opposed to upholding the institution. When a systematic shut down of those come into play, it is a godfather move to keep in fighting among themselves.

And yes, it shows that it is out of control but when the Word of God is not even brought to bear on why this was brought about in the first place, it is no different than preventing access, or revealing to the world what really happened, like Fast and Furious.

Is this anyway to behave as representatives of the Head of the Church, the Lord Jesus Christ? Who in the world are we trying to fool. Sadly, we have done a good job fooling ourselves that we are doing a great service. Only to realize that we have done a disastrous disservice to people that may want to be a part of a prestigious institution to provide credibility, safe association, and Christian fellowship, reflecting and honoring Jesus, our Savior.

The Bible, in strict obedience to God and His Word, is what gives a person and the church its legitimacy. And even if the supposed adherents fail to live by the standards of the Word of God, the Bible remains legitimate because of its Author. God.

He and His Word is final and absolute authority.

Any institution that claims to uphold the standards of the Word of God, yet, capitulate, only brings into question the integrity and credibility of the leadership of the institution. In other words, could they be trusted? And if I were to assume the credentials of the institution, will I be taken seriously or will I be a laughing stock?

Am I real or am I a clown?

Clowns do wear clothing but does the clothing represent the seriousness of an institution or is it just something to wear because people will not take me seriously anyway?

No matter your affiliation, if we name the name of Christ, we are to depart from iniquity. We are hurting because of these events but this is the time to make things right with God first.

The Bible is very simple and basic. In fact it is determined that the level of reading comprehension for the King James Version is high school 12th grade.

When the Bible is clear about sin and its only remedy, it is important to keep things very simple. Man is complex and takes too much pride in complicating a very simple principle.

The issue is clear.

Homosexuality is a sin.

Practicing homosexuals are not righteous. Just as anyone that intentionally practices sin is not righteous. Just in case you do not understand, I mean, a person that sins on purpose. A deliberate act of rebellion against the known will of God. Trespass. Lawlessness.

SIN.

There is a considerable risk when you point sin out. People that love sin will hate you for telling them that what is pleasurable is a sin. But is sin really pleasurable?

First, sin disconnects a person from God.

GOD HATES SIN.

So because God hates sin, we too, must hate sin. Sin brings death (Romans 5:12). So why would we love to do something that brings death? Because of the momentary pleasure, we delve into it, head long.

Second, sin is responsible for death. We die first to God. In other words, we, in sin, do not respond to God. And then we die physically to enter into eternity, with or without Christ.

That’s what the gospel of Jesus Christ is all about. To bring an eternal remedy to the spiritual malady called sin. Anyone that is in any institution that has anything to do with God and is not about church business, if sin is permitted anywhere in leadership or followship, it is a failed institution.

We already know that the leadership at JCAAPB capitulated on their stand against the sin of homosexuality. The damage control is in full swing. It’s now a determination about how to smooth out the rough edges of the story, maintain support, determine who is on who’s side, and reprove, and bring in line those that may have a mind of their own.

First, it is without saying that the side you better be on is the side of God.

“Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that the friendship with the world is enmity (hostile) with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.”

Thank God that this is not OT times. All the leaders that offended God were hung (see Numbers 25:4). Nonetheless, the punishment is more severe. Especially when you know the truth of the Word of God according to James 3:1.

Second, the standard of God is clear. When we say one thing and then we do another, it is hypocrisy.

You call yourselves men and women of God. How about standing up for God for a change and let your institution fall if it had to just to insure you are dealing with a situation according to the Scriptures?

God will honor those that honor Him and His Word. The assault that was stopped in heaven continues in the earth, and now in the churches where sin is excused and not confronted?

This can’t be.

Not on our watch.

Lesson Two: Do Not Be A Hypocrite

Pity the leader that go out of their way to protect an institution while they walk away from the God of truth.

For years, l lived as a hypocrite. Every Sunday until 2009. While approaching the pulpit the Holy Spirit would impress upon my spirit that I was not right. I was a bald faced hypocrite. The sin of porn and masturbation, lustfully watching women and filing their “figure” in my mind to masturbate off of; raged in my flesh until the Lord said to me….

“Come Clean. Or be exposed!”

As I look back, I realized my role in facilitating sin in His church.

When we do not take sin seriously, we are perpetrating fraud. We are not who we say we are. We are not perfect, but we can stop sinning. We have been delivered from the power and the guilt of sin and we can walk away from temptation of sin with the help of the Holy Spirit and by strictly obeying the Word to flee sexual immorality.

Hypocrisy blinds the best of us and if we do not deal with hypocrisy, we will never be effective in reaching the world for the Lord Jesus Christ. Many sinners say that there are too many hypocrites in the church and depending upon where you go, they may not be lying.

What is important is how will they fix what happened?

It is important that we take the next step and make the necessary changes that pleases the Father God in heaven, on His holy throne, His Excellency, Psalm 8:1.

If you decide to make a stand against sin, you will not be loved. Whether by those in the church that live carnal lives or sinners in the world.

But stand against sin, we must.

Jesus paid a terrible price for our redemption. We dishonor the memory of Jesus when we sin knowing that He died to free us from the guilt and power of sin.

Arguing points of decision making is helpful for a “lesson’s learned” perspective, but the goal is not to score personal points. The goal is to restore the God of our Bible, and His Word to its rightful place.

If we fail to honor the Word of God we are no different than the Pharisees and Sadducees that circumvented the commandment of God with their traditions. In other words, they loved their edicts more than they love God and the Word of God.

For doing this, the Lord had a leadership sermon that is appropriate for today.

Matthew 23

The sermon: Hypocrites

When you put out a statement about the sin of homosexuality and you violate your own principle, embedded in the Word of God, the unmistakeable sent of dead fish fills the room.

If you want to bring honor back to an institution, we must honor God and His Word. The pain of losing sin and the sin of hypocrisy is much less than to be denied in heaven by Jesus. To know Him is to keep His commandments. Not when it is convenient but when it is difficult. In the face of all odds. When LGBT wants you to compromise and walk away from the God of heaven and earth for the pleasures of this world.

We can’t seem to understand that the quest to rule is as old as the beginning.

And OC Allen and his love for the sin of homosexuality is no different. He can’t be a brother Bishop because he is brother to satan. This is not character assassination or judging. This is calling a man’s sin out in the open and it must be dealt with in truth and in God’s love for the sinner.

“Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” is the message of the hour.

When we no longer command men everywhere to repent, what good is having a church?

This is the spirit of error and antichrist that is already in the earth. To stand against the righteous nature of Jesus is the spirit of antichrist or anti Anointed One. To live in blatant sin is the spirit of antichrist. Anti Jesus. Anti righteousness. Anti holiness. And you can only be for perversion when Christ is out of the way.

We can’t see that all satan wants is for sin to be legitimized, justified, and ratified by God’s highest creation. Because satan, a disembodied spirit, want complete expression of sin and what better way to do it than in God’s own creation.

A little humility would go a long ways to mending the fences.

What should we expect when leaders drop the ball?

Perhaps a suggested plain statement would help (without eloquence)…..

“Folks, we missed God on this. The events that led to this didn’t have to happen. We should have been more forth coming about these events, and we dropped the ball. No person that harbors sin in their lives and desire to be a leader should have darkened the doorstep of this institution. We repent and ask God’s forgiveness and mercy for turning our backs on Him and His Word. We ask for your forgiveness as we fall on our face before God. We endeavor to restore integrity and credibility by putting God and His Word first. We renounce hypocrisy in any form by being true examples to the believers in word, conduct, faith, love, and purity. To those that expressed concern about this institution, we join in your quest for the truth and we stand together to confront all sin, especially those that are trapped in the sin of homosexuality. We will work hard to help anyone in sin to come out of it by extending the gospel of Jesus Christ to them to deliver and set them free.”

So what will it be?

Hypocrisy or Truth.

LGBT: The Joint College Crisis Of Biblical Integrity and Credibility

What’s really at stake here?

For now, allegedly, we have seen one man use a strong arm tactic (threat of a lawsuit) to obtain the right to wear an insignia of the Joint College of Bishops of the African American Pentecostal Bishops.

From Bishop J Delano Ellis, on the Joint College FB page, in response, he called O. C. Allen, a practicing homosexual, “Bishop Allen.”

There is no implication or guess work here.

It is clear by his own words that O. C. Allen is a “Brother Bishop.”

The danger that is presented is that many will now flock to the Joint College, knowing that because one person, in known sin, can obtain credentials, a legitimacy pursuit and acquisition will be easy to obtain.

And they won’t have to use a threatening lawsuit.

All they have to say is that…..

“You let O.C. Allen in? We know you will do the same for us.”

How do you think this will end?

John 15:1a and verse 6 says….

“I am the true Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away;…If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.”

Jesus said in Matthew 7:17-20…

“Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”

Regardless, if you are a non producing dead branch or a bad tree, the fate is the same.

You will burn in fire.

In both cases, the Father cuts off the branch or He cuts down the tree.

The fate is the same.

Into the fire you go to burn.

Sadly, this will not be incentive enough to change a person’s wicked ways.

Proverbs 14:12 and 16:25 says

“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.”

After viewing the Joint College’s 2013 FB site, several comments were made about the quest for truth and the “rebuttal” sent by Bishop Ellis.

Which you can read here…..

https://www.facebook.com/events/140616166065438/

What gets me is that many of the comments fail to underscore any Biblical foundation as to why they agreed with the Bishop’s statement. And it is alarming because when you have people following you, the first thing that you have to do is discern the rightly divided Word of God, and discern whether or not the leader submits to Christ’s truth in the Word, Christ’s rule and Christ’s authority.

Sadly one person that agreed with Bishop Ellis’s statement is a pastor of a church called “Pursuit Of Truth.”

When you have people calling you “Excellency,” there is a problem.

And yes, it is worship. Sadly, people still worship everything and everybody else but God.

Psalm 8:1 says…

“O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth.”

It underscores the fact that Jeremiah 17:5-10 is in play here when people agree with the ill-fated position of admitting homosexuals into the ranks of the Joint College. I doubt if there is going to be a course change. Anything is possible though, because the Lord loves people and He wants His people to repent and remember Him as the only One that will bring legitimacy, provided, they turn from their wicked ways.

Just reading verse 5…

“Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord.”

According to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of OT Words, the word “curse” in his commentary said, “God alone truly “curses.” It is a revelation of His justice, in support of His claim to absolute obedience. Men may claim God’s “curses” by committing their grievances to God and trusting in His righteous judgment (cf. Psalm 109:26-31).”

Why is this reference so important?

Because anytime you trust in a man to bring you legitimacy, you distrust God.

When you have a group of people “agreeing” with sin, there is the problem.

It’s an “eyes wide shut” moment.

Jesus said, “…Seeing they may see and not perceive…”

Like a fish looking at the worm, not seeing the hook. Bait is designed to catch fish for dinner, and these people do not realize that they are on the menu.

The question again is simple.

What’s at stake here?

If a course change never happens, we are witnessing another institution fall to the demonic agenda of LGBT. It is their desire to destabilize and delegitimize Christ and His true church.

For me and others that follow the Word of God, this is an easy one.

The rebuke is issued.

I condemn and vehemently rebuke those that exalt man above Jesus. I condemn and vehemently rebuke all who claim to be in Christ, yet openly practice the sin of homosexuality or any Secret Sexual Sins.

Many would like for those that say something to go away and just pray for them. Believe me, since coming out of the sins of sexual immorality myself (watching porn and masturbation), it’s been my prayer from jump street. But every so often, we read about more perverseness and silliness. How church leaders continue to openly violate the Word of God and live in deep hypocrisy.

The worse kind of preacher is a hypocritical preacher. Especially when they planned it all along. In that case, it’s not hypocritical. It’s plain deception with apostasy written on the wall.

Many will say, we should just walk in love about it and let Jesus handle it.

Another tactic to silence the truth.

It’s like knowing that the bomb is coming and we let it go when we could have done something.

Romans 13:12-14 tells us that “The night is far spent, the day is at hand…”

More foolishness is coming and the Joint College is just a start of things to come.

The strings of the LGBT puppet masters are firmly in place in the leadership of the Joint College, unless they revoke the credentials issued to O.C. Allen, and reinstate their unequivocal support and pledge their full unadulterated compliance to the Joint College’s statement against allowing people captured by the sin of homosexuality to seek any office therein.

Until then, no longer legitimate and without credibility, the Joint College is another casualty of war, and this time, it’s a very big prize in the trophy case of church institutions captured by the devil.

And that, without any fight. The Joint College just took a dive.

You wonder if a “Gamaliel” would rise up and speak some sense into the minds of these people. Someone that has a little wisdom to offer a Biblical course change before it is too late.

Alas. More ministers, their ministries, churches, and whatever denominations that are left, may capsize when the storm of sinful pressure from the now spiritually acceptable church leaders of the brand name LGBT puppet masters.

My only question is that since O. C. Allen is already an ordained bishop, why don’t he make up his own insignia and start his own sin-filled denomination? Or, was it his intention all along to do it and he needed some form of legitimacy so that when he is ready, he will make his move. Just imagine a whole denomination of homosexual churches under his leadership?

Could this be part of the sexual immorality that may swallow the deceived, the very elect?

The infiltration by way of compromise is over.

Perhaps a new tactic will emerge. Only a matter of time. It may be time for a massive frontal assault and those that are not prepared to fight may not make it.

But the Bible says…

“Upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

As the late John Osteen once said…

“The devil’s best is not enough!”

I might add….Because we serve a God that is more than enough!

LGBT: The Capitulation Of The Joint College Of Bishops

It is sad when you watch practicing homosexuals hijack the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and reduce it to legitimize the sin of homosexuality. I take no joy in this exposure of epic proportions.

Thanks to the vigilance of GCMWatch.com, we are constantly apprised of watching institution after institution falling and rejecting the gospel of Jesus Christ in it’s purest form. But by the blogs and other timely pieces of reporting by GCMWatch.com, we are also informed as to the kind of erroneous doctrine, so twisted that you have to be literally on drugs and alcohol to miss the truth of the Word of God.

The whole purpose of the gospel of Jesus Christ is total freedom of all sin through the life, death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

It is Biblically evident that as time progresses, living against sin and the devil’s evil is becoming a thing of the past. To live above reproach and to live holy is considered by some to be obsolete and impossible.

People are living in sin, and they do not care what the truth is, and it starts with the leaders.

As I was watching a video of the late pastor John Osteen on a FB link by Selena Mosley of Equipping For Change Ministries, John Osteen mentioned something that was powerful that the Lord. When it came to the sins of Israel, God always dealt viciously with the priests, princes, and prophets that failed to walk in the commands of the Lord.

And the Lord constantly looks for people to stand in the gap and pray that God would have mercy and spare the people.

We are seeing a failure in current Christian leadership because in our private lives, sin is easily concealed by our personality and we purport the ability to appear before people as holy.

Nothing could be further from the charade.

Our secret sins are before the Lord, and God is continuously exposing sin in unimaginable ways. But before the Lord exposes, He uses people to warn them before the sword falls. This intercession is prayer but when God puts this stuff on the Internet, it is another form of warning before the sword falls.

We do not mind the risk of reputation because we know that we stand a greater risk of being denied by the Lord Jesus Christ before the Heavenly Father. We stand a greater risk, knowing that the sword is about to fall and we say nothing.

It is not about “personal attacks.”

It is about letting the truth be the only course to pursue. Tirelessly, we have watched these developments unfold and we are seeing the truth come out. As painful as it is, if we do not address these egregious actions, more institutions will capitulate. And many people and more institutions will fall, regardless, but we are still responsible to warn before the sword falls.

Who’s next?

What denomination will cave in to the pressure of the demonic puppet master LGBT?

Many Christians have already swallowed the deadly poison of lies spewed by those who desire to hold in its grip wavering believers that don’t know the truth of the Word.

In the quest for the truth, Pastors DL Foster, Dwayne Loughridge, and I went direct to their FB page and requested clarification about the turn of events in this precarious incident.

You can’t make this stuff up.

We never made any attack statements. All we wanted was clarification of a publicized position about the Joint College of Bishops being against the sin of homosexuality and then, make an intentional egregious compromise to allow a practicing homosexual to be a part of this “prestigious” institution.

What’s also disturbing is that Bishop Ellis of the Joint College of Bishops issued a direct statement made toward us that… “If you want to help me “IMITATE ME,” with “SILENCE!!”

In plain parlance, sit down and shut up.

With LGBT precision, they want us to keep quiet about an institution that pledged on their website not to allow practicing homosexuals to be a part of their institution, yet make a clear compromise of a Biblical principle.

We did not start this fight.

It was of their own doing, and like the World’s Dumbest Criminals Caught On Tape, a picture brought into question the integrity and credibility of a supposed Christian organization of Pentecostals.

It started with a compelling picture of O. C. Allen, a known practicing homosexual, wearing the insignia of the Joint College of Pentecostal African American Bishops.

They say a picture can say a thousand words, but this picture said one word.

Sin.

I purposely went to the website of O.C. Allen’s church site of Vision Church and he was titled as “Bishop Designate.”

If you want to be a Bishop, make up your own homosexual insignia and call it a day. But no matter what legitimacy agenda is pursued, there is only one thing that is legitimate.

Homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22.

That, you can take to the bank and cash it, full face value.

O. C. Allen was already ordained, but not by the Joint College of Bishops, and you will see all this on GCMWatch’s site.

Then go to this FB link of the Joint College….

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Joint-College-Of-Bishops/237450282990701

Be quick about it because they may take swift action, LGBT style.

However, we have carefully documented and applied a copy and paste on our FB pages. Whenever there is a conspiracy and they want people to be quiet, they will go to great lengths to block people from getting the truth.
