For standing against the Lord and the Bible, the award goes to………drum roll………Raphael Warnock, 2020 false pastor of the year.
It’s clear that many that stand in pulpits today have betrayed the Lord. We all get on Peter for denying the Lord during His trial before the leaders of Israel, but the Lord prayed for Peter that his faith fails not.
Peter stood out because he was an aggressive disciple of the Lord. Peter walked on water for a little while. Declared that Jesus is the Son of the living God, with the help of the Father, and was a part of the inner circle with John and his brother James, the sons of thunder.
After the resurrection of Jesus, Peter was a main figure. James was beheaded, John stuck around and gave us 5 books, the gospel, 3 general epistles, and the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Peter wrote 2.
Even after the betrayal of Jesus, Peter did exactly what the Lord prayed for. “And when you are converted, strengthen your brothers.” Peter warned about false teachers and prophets in 2 Peter chapter 2.
What’s in the making of false prophets and teachers?
First, some of them are not called of the Lord and entered the ministry through the back door. It turns out to be a vocation to appease the desire to change the social conditions surrounding them. To make a difference in society.
They get goose bumps and attend schools, gain a reputation, and then after a few breaks, doors opens for them. Just because you can talk, and have a great personality, it doesn’t mean that God called you.
Then there’s these false teachers and prophets that were saved, called by God, go through some ministerial training, get the breaks, and then they break away from the Lord, and end up where they are today.
On the “junk heap of ministry.”
After a while, they get discouraged, start listening or watching other strange preachers and they start believing their own mouths. They exalt themselves. They promote themselves, and next thing you know, they get on stage and people are mesmerized by their ability to connect to people.
Then some of them get suggestions.
You need to run for political office.
It sinks in. But in politics, you have to compromise. You can’t bring this Jesus you preach with you. Jesus must be left at the door. That Bible too.
They begin to change their message in the pulpit. It gets political in tone. Even to the point of betraying their Lord and the Bible.
And the people in the pews don’t know any better.
That’s why they’re called sheep.
Sheep don’t lead. Sheep are led.
You would expect that mature sheep would at least sound the alarm that the shepherd had a mental illness and had gone crazy.
Not in Ebenezer Baptist Church.
Their pastor is about to be “famous.”
The stage is set.
For Warnock, he’s the very kind of person the world wants.
The God of all creation, and the Bible is only a secondary or last resort. Or no resort at all.
The title of Reverend Dr., is only a get into the door with respect card.
A pastor must abandon Jesus and His Word to be accepted. Once you’ve shown that you’re willing to gain the whole world, you MUST lose your own soul.
False teachers and prophets have a pattern. They get into a complete rejection of the truth for personal expediency. Not realizing that death ends all pursuits. Fearless of death, they accept their assignment to infect many humans.
That sin doesn’t carry a penalty. If there’s no penalty, then with impunity, sin is committed. This is a false sense of security.
“Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Though a sinner does evil a hundred times, and his days are prolonged, yet I surely know that it will be well with those who fear God, who fear before Him. But it will not be well with the wicked; nor will he prolong his days, which are as a shadow, because he does not fear before God.”
Some of you are already thinking. “Why are you picking on this dude?”
No matter what, people will say that you’re doing this to “smear” him.
To smear a person means that you’re bringing false accusations to make a person look bad.
His own record isn’t a smear, nor is it false accusation.
His own record tells the story. The only thing that’s happening is that his own record is uncovered for all to see.
Warnock agrees with Jeremiah Wright. Fact. Not a false accusation.
Warnock said that his belief about abortion doesn’t conflict with his ministry. Fact. Not a false accusation.
Warnock agrees with “sexual orientation theory.” Fact. Not a false accusation.
These three indisputable things disqualifies him as a “reverend dr.” Because when you preach the Bible, you’re acknowledging that God is the Lord and what HE says is His commands.
You have every right to call it a political smear campaign if you believe that this is what you think it is.
But when you’re on the record, it can’t be called a smear campaign.
It’s called a truth campaign.
You can’t stop people from doing what they do, but when you’re called to sound the alarm, we have no choice but to sound the alarm.
Once the alarm is sounded, you either run, or you stay and get destroyed.
“A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself;
The simple pass on and are punished.”
Is Warnock beyond help? Peter wasn’t. Even Judas could have said to himself, “I can’t do this.” But Judas betrayed Jesus anyway. Peter recovered. Remember also that the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart. And Pharaoh perished.
Even as Peter wrote in 2 Peter 2, that false teachers and prophets were made to be caught. As with many that even in the face of truth, will not turn from the wicked ways.
When a person professes faith in the the Lord Jesus and then makes a public announcement to divorce his wife, renounce faith in Jesus, and apologizes for his stand against the vile sin of homosexuality, then attend a homosexual parade in Canada………..
We could easily see that these signs indicate a clear picture of an individual that struggled with his relationship with the Lord and with his marriage.
If he didn’t struggle with his marriage, or more so, his sexuality, then are we blind?
You will say that I’ve read too much into this and you don’t know anything about what Harris is going through.
If you’re driving on a specific highway, in a specific car, and you get off at a specific exit, are you dreaming, are you in an illusion, or is it a mirage?
Is it a figment of my imagination?
We’ve seen this before with Jim Swilley, in 2010, when he divorced his wife, and announced to his mega church that he’s a homosexual.
We understand that patterns may be different with different individuals, however, the similarities can’t be ignored.
When there’s a certain unmistakable pattern, we should pay attention to it, because we may see it again, and again.
Sometimes, these patterns occur again at a later time because some of us may have fallen asleep.
The Body of Christ was ROCKED?
Far from it.
We need to see this for what it is and not for what they want us to pretend it is.
Which one is it?
Paul told Timothy “Flee youthful lusts.”
It’s clear that when it’s about sexual orientation, or to be blunt……….sex.
It all comes down to preference.
1 John 2:15-17 (NKJV Strong’s) “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.”
The fight of faith not only includes fighting against the methods and strategies of the devil to persecute the church, but it includes fighting against the desires of the flesh and mind that desire to stray or wander from personal holiness to engage in the pleasures of this life.
Psalms 119:9-11 (NKJV Strong’s)
“How can a young man cleanse his way?
By taking heed according to Your word.
With my whole heart I have sought You;
Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.”
Our love for the Lord must be stronger than any emotional attachments to sin we’ve been delivered from. We lose this fight when we give up and tell the Holy Spirit, by our actions, that we no longer want to fight against the sin that we love.
We stop submitting to God, We stop resisting the devil. We refuse to humble ourselves and place ourselves under the mighty hand of God.
The love for sin is allowed to overwhelm us, cloud our judgment and sear our conscience.
Or, if Joshua Harris was never of us (see 1 John 2:19), some of us were deceived.
It’s the going trend, revealing that we’re in the very last hour of the last days.
More and more, we’re seeing people renouncing Christ, that is, if they were in Christ. Or using many signs and wonders, and their musical gifts to deceive people into believing that they’re in Christ, and then depart the faith. And watch the people that followed them, and not Jesus, follow right along with them into sins and then into hell.
I believe that the rabbit trail of trying to figure out “why” is futile.
What’s important is that you take note and not follow personalities that come with lying signs and wonders, or great musical or oral talents.
1 Corinthians 10:6-13 (NKJV Strong’s) “Now these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted. And do not become idolaters as were some of them.
As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” Nor let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them did, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell; nor let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed by serpents; nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer.
Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
If you’re struggling in your flesh, it’s time to subdue the flesh with prayer and fasting.
Matthew 26:41 (NKJV Strong’s) “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
It’s time to listen to the Holy Spirit and heed His instruction.
“As many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.”

People get mad all the time.
Road rage. People stepping on your toe…….repeatedly and on purpose. Cutting in front of you on line. Calling you names that hurt.
Calling the sexually immoral “insane” doesn’t help, you might say.
Look at what you’re practicing. Ask yourself.
Is it normal or abnormal
Risking acquiring STDs and increase the chances with multiple sexual partners of acquiring an incurable disease? Ask yourself. Is this normal or abnormal?
My point isn’t to make you angry but to get you to see that what you’re practicing is irrational and insane.
Additionally, getting sane people to accept insanity isn’t good either.
Anger is “a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility.”
But what does anger have to to with insanity?
When someone rejects who you are and what you do, or tell you that what you’ve said or done is wrong or insane, it’s very easy for anyone involved in sin to get very angry.
When it comes to sin, humans are territorial.
When anyone makes a declaration that what a person is doing is wrong, it’s very instinctive to become defensive. So with every thing they have, they will use every available means to vilify and silence any voice that’s against the sin of homosexuality, bisexuality, transvestism, transgenderism, queer, gay, and other vile sins.
The war is about refusing and fighting against sanity.
Remember. Sanity means healthy.
Insanity means unhealthy.
Why do people involved in homosexuality fight against sanity?
Sexual sins is a preference, not a class of people, and it’s not a race of people.
Sexual sins is a choice.
In Genesis 4, Abel brought to the Lord an acceptable offering. A lamb. Cain chose to bring fruit from the ground as his offering to the Lord. The Lord accepted Abel’s offering because this is what the Lord required.
Cain’s offering was rejected because he brought an offering that wasn’t what the Lord required.
Genesis 4:2-7 (NKJV Strong’s) “Then she bore again, this time his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord.
Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat.
And the Lord respected Abel and his offering, but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell.
So the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen?
If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”
Cain was angry (furious).
But look at what Cain brought to the Lord.
Fruit from the ground that’s worth far less than a lamb.
But notice also that even though the Lord rejected Cain’s offering, the Lord asked Cain why was he angry. Whenever the Lord asks a question, He’s not looking for information because the Lord is omniscient. The purpose of the question is to get you to see yourself.
Cain, no doubt, worked very hard to impress the Lord and it didn’t work out so well. Enraged, his countenance or his face fell. In other words, Cain was happy and now, he’s steaming white hot mad at God.
Cain went to great lengths to make his offering presentable.
It’s like you’ve spent a lot of time in the beauty parlor and everything you’ve done wasn’t enough.
But also note that the Lord gave Cain the answer.
Sin is always at the heart of the issue.
An offering of the fruit of the ground cannot take away sin.
So Cain took his anger out on his brother.
Blood is what the Lord want but not the blood of his brother, Abel.
A lamb, sacrificed, takes away sin.
Leviticus 17:11 (NKJV Strong’s) “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.’
John 1:29 (NKJV Strong’s) “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”
Homosexuals are furious that you don’t accept their condition as normal.
Transgenders are furious that you don’t accept their surgical reassignment as normal.
It’s insane to bring to the Lord our condition of sin when the Lord Jesus gave His life to redeem ours, to be free from the guilt and power of sin.
We defiantly demand, with furious anger, that God and true believers of Jesus MUST “love” and they MUST accept our “fruit of the ground.”
We work for Jesus and it’s our job to put our lives on the line, shunning our reputation, to reach into the “fire” to pull many souls out of the flames of their sins before they fall into the eternal flames as punishment for shunning the salvation of the Lord.
Talk about rescuing people from the fire, notice this Scripture.
Jude 1:21-23 (NKJV Strong’s) “…keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.”
So the question to homosexuals is “Why do you get angry when the Lord desires to make you free from the guilt and power of sin?”
It’s irrational to be angry when a firefighter runs into a burning building to rescue you. In fact, many will say that it’s irrational for a firefighter to go into burning building. But a firefighter gets paid to put his life on the line to rescue people so they wouldn’t die.
What Jesus did for all man, He did FREE OF CHARGE.
What the Lord Jesus did for us can never be repaid for the debt we owe is beyond the calculation of price.
Sinless, perfect blood.
It’s irrational for the Lord God to send the Lord Jesus to die for the sin of the whole world so that we wouldn’t die in our sins………..uhuh…
Paul called this “The foolishness of God.”
God did something irrational and yes, insane to deliver us from our insanity.
God seen the insanity of man and did something we would consider to be irrational.
His divine love for man.
If God didn’t love us, He never would have sent His Son to die for our sin to free us. Jesus didn’t die for sin so we could continue in sin, He died and was resurrected from the dead as a demonstration of God’s love to deliver us from the guilt and power of sin.
Which is why the world hates the Lord without a cause.
The love of sin keeps many people in the grip of sin.
John 15:25 (NKJV Strong’s) “But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’”
What did the Lord do to you that makes you angry at the Lord?
Is it because He said in His Word that homosexuality is an abomination (detestable/disgusting)?
The reason why it’s disgusting and detestable is that it violates the order that God established. This established order by the Lord is enforced by consequential judgment called STDs. It’s important to note that there’s nothing to get mad or angry over.
Just like if a person violates the law, is tried in court, is found guilty, is convicted of violating that law, they’re sentenced.
Lawlessness is insanity.
It’s mental insanity or mentally unhealthy.
It’s rational to teach people that it’s insane to commit sex acts with the same sex. Committing sex acts with a minor in either gender, is immoral, insanity, and irrational, as well as sex with animals.
Clearly, this is insane.
Sadly, insanity (unhealthy), is pushed to be normal but just because someone or a group of people make convincing arguments that sexual immorality is normal, it doesn’t postpone or prevent consequential judgment in the form of STDs from being acquired.
You don’t have to be steaming white hot mad at God. God didn’t do anything to you, but for you.
So don’t get mad or angry.
Be glad that the Lord sends His people to loving warn and admonish others not to participate in that which is insane to bring people back to sanity.
Prayer: Lord, I recognize that homosexuality is an abomination. It’s detestable and disgusting in Your sight. I believe that You’ve sent Your Son to deliver and to make me free of sin. Lord, I repent. I ask You to forgive and pardon me as You’ve said in Your Word. You’re merciful and full of grace and truth. Forgive me for being angry at You without a cause. Holy Spirit, make me a new creation in Christ. Give me strength. For in Jesus, you always cause me to triumph in Christ. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
LGBT loves controversy.
One of the goals of homosexuals is to get people in the world to see that if you’re against homosexuality, you’re dividing people instead of uniting people.
This ideology isn’t new.
Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 (NKJV Strong’s)
“That which has been is what will be,
That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which it may be said,
“See, this is new”?
It has already been in ancient times before us.”
We get it that the American Women’s Soccer co-captain is using this stage to put a wedge between homosexuals and President Trump.
But it goes beyond making a claim that Trump is dividing the American people.
With support for LGBT showing a decline, especially among millennials, we see that if we buy into the narrative, you could, some how, stop the decline.
Remember, the decline of acceptance of homosexuality of a good portion of the American population reveals that the 1% of the American population that practice the sin of homosexuality is threatened.
So the 1% of Americans that participate in homosexuality is attempting to tell the full American population that we’re divided.
The election of 2000 and 2016 reveals that there is a serious divide due to the direction of the country economically.
As former president Clinton said while campaigning against George H. W. Bush……“It’s the economy, stupid.”
The actual person that coined this phrase was campaign strategist James Carville.
More people are concerned about the general direction of the country than about the sin of homosexuality.
Regarding Trump and politics, Trump gets it.
He’s assembled a team of economists and with his business sense, Trump put his focus and emphasis on what matters most to the American people.
Obama did the opposite and we’ve paid for it, economically, as a nation.
So there’s an attempt to put homosexuality back, which involves only 1% of the American population, on the forefront of American life and politics, and forget about the rest of America.
But what’s the real gist of this is that homosexuals want to unite the American people to rally around those that practice the vile sin of homosexuality.
First, the Lord divided the light from the darkness (see Genesis 1:3-5), but notice that this was before the Lord created the Sun to rule by day, and the Moon (reflecting light from the sun) to rule by night.
This is a clear indication that a spiritual demarcation and designation took place.
satan’s kingdom is also called “darkness.”
And God’s kingdom is called “light.” See Acts 26:14-18, Colossians 1:12-13, and also 1 John 1:5-7.
Then Paul said these words in 2 Corinthians 6:14 (NKJV Strong’s)
“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?”
The plan of satan is to cover the world in darkness. To accomplish this, satan must find a way to completely conquer light.
John 1:4-5 (NKJV Strong’s) “In Him (Jesus) was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.”
Notice the Greek definition of “comprehend” from Strong’s Dictionary of NT Words.
g2638. καταλαμβάνω katalambanō; from 2596 and 2983; to take eagerly, i.e. seize, possess, etc. (literally or figuratively): — apprehend, attain, come upon, comprehend, find, obtain, perceive, (over-)take.
So darkness cannot “take eagerly. i. e. seize or possess” light.
What I’m saying is that it’s impossible for darkness to take eagerly, seize, or possess light.
Hence, the goal of homosexuality is to completely seize and possess light.
If you take the light out, darkness rules. You won’t be able to see.
Light shines IN darkness.
As long as the true believer remains on the earth, the kingdom of darkness cannot seize or possess the light.
Light cannot fellowship with darkness. So darkness must do everything in its power to get those that are in the light to relinquish and extinguish the light. As people make a decision to leave the light and join darkness, it gives the appearance that the light is weakening.
As long as LGBT use the ol’ “Trump is dividing us” line, if true believers and those wavering are on the side lines, they’ll buy into this and separate themselves from the Lord. Now, politicians are to be prayed for according to 1 Timothy 2:1-5, but we as true believers must never put politics above Christ.
And btw, Christianity isn’t dependent upon Trump or upon any man.
We trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, not politics or politicians (see Jeremiah 17:5-10).
So the line about dividing Americans, folks, if you’re in the kingdom of light, you’re already divided from the kingdom of darkness.
Be also advised that not every American is in the light. It’s not about politics.
Matthew 10:34-39 (NKJV Strong’s)
“Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’
He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.”
We’re already divided and it will stay that way until the consummation of the ages.
Second, Nimrod in Genesis 11 tried to unite the people to build a tower in Babel (confusion). The Lord divided these people by giving them diversity of languages.
To this day, the division among people exists.
Ethnic divisions of many people and spiritual divisions of many people.
Our ethnicity division is not about hatred of another race or separation from other humans that may be of a different race. This is insanity.
But the Lord will accomplish this one goal.
Acts 17:24-27 (NKJV Strong’s) “God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.
And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;”
You’re either in the light, or you’re in darkness.
So I say to LGBT, the true believers will not separate themselves from light to go back into darkness. No matter what immoral laws and devious enforcement penalties you come up with.
The divide is here to stay.
In eternity, the division continues but those divided into hell and eventually, the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, will not enjoy peace. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Pain and torment in outer darkness.
Therefore, we urge you. Come out of darkness and be reconciled to God.
When you deface a poster of Trump, no problem.
When you deface or burn the American flag, no problem.
But when you deface a Megan Rapinoe poster in the NYC subway, you will be investigated for committing a hate crime against homosexuals.
In fact, what was this all about any way?
Was it about women’s soccer?
Yes, if you were a women’s soccer fan.
And no, not really about women’s soccer.
Because it was a blatant show of one individual involved in the sin of homosexuality.
It was free advertisement.
It was a worldwide promotion of the combination of women’s soccer and the vile sin of homosexuality.
They used a legitimate sport to advertise sin.
Just like in the WNBA, as in other women’s sports, The Lesbian Connection is front and center.
More often than not, it’s a shame when you could see that Megan Rapinoe is used by the elite homosexuals to advertise that it’s “ok” to be homosexual and involved in sports. It’s passed off like it’s “ok” to be involved in women’s sports and if you’re a homosexual, that’s “ok” too.
But we have millions of people that commit adultery, child sex (Epstein), fornication, sex trafficking, prostitution, and involved in all sorts of high and low profile jobs.
Should they lose their jobs because of these things?
Labor Secretary Acosta is being asked to step down because he wasn’t tough on Epstein over underage sex over a decade ago.
See, morality has a problem in other areas of sexual immorality.
We change the rules as we go.
Now it’s not a crime to be a woman playing sports.
However, we see that homosexuality is definitely promoted.
The “masculine look” of Megan Rapinoe was all the advertisement needed.
Megan’s posters were probably in abundance in the NYC subway system.
Now there’s tons of graffiti in NYC.
Some permitted in certain communities, others aren’t.
Graffiti, back in the 60’s and 70’s was considered visual pollution.
Now, there’s specific chemicals that will remove graffiti. Like on trains, cars, trucks, and walls. But it doesn’t stop the tag artist. They return with a vengeance.
Now when it comes to physical assault or verbal assault, a child of God will not stoop low and do what the world does to send a message. It’s beneath the dignity of a child of God to become like the world in expressing with violence and assault the disapproval of homosexuality.
The preaching of God’s Word, in a peaceful but loving manner (speaking the truth in love), is the only way to voice God’s disapproval of the abomination of homosexuality.
The Lord instructed His disciples to preach the Word of God to those willing to receive. If they do not receive you or your Biblical message, leave them and their city after you’ve shaken the dust of that city off your feet (see Matthew chapter 10).
But to deface or damage property or commit the crime of physical assault is not becoming a child of God.
Apparently, NYC may have pockets of resistance to the laws regarding homosexuals.
In fact, when you click the link below, you will read the story regarding a gay flag burning in front of a homosexual bar in Harlem NYC. But if you were to burn the American flag, it’s no problem.
Now Megan Rapinoe, the co-captain of the women’s soccer team that won the World Cup, expressed in her speech at City Hall to “Love More, Hate Less.”
Code for “Love More Homosexuals, Hate Less About Homosexuals.”
Many will say that you’re putting words in their mouths or that you’re twisting what she said, but face it. It’s what homosexuals want.
Love on their terms and get people to stop what they perceive as hatred of homosexuals. But I find it very strange that homosexuals hate anyone that express the Bible to deliver them from sin.
They tell us not to hate but they express hate.
Contradiction. Irony. Hypocrisy.
Sadly, homosexuals believe that if you preach against the sin of homosexuals, then you hate homosexuals.
On the other hand, you have extreme zealots pretending to be Christians and exercise hatred that goes beyond the teachings of the Lord Jesus.
A true preacher of the Word of God will preach that God is against homosexuality BUT they will also preach that the power of God is available to deliver the sexually immoral from the escapable power of sin.
A true preacher will preach from the Word of God that those that continue in sin will perish in their sins BUT as long as you have breath in your lungs and blood running warm in your veins, the offer of eternal life through repentance and faith in Christ is available.
The incentive is our date with the destiny of death.
Hebrews 9:27 says,
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, after that the judgment.”
So if death is true on one hand, judgment is true on the other.
You’re offered to exchange the sin you’re in for the life of Christ.
But it has a “sell by” date.
Your death or the coming of the Lord Jesus, which ever comes first.
The choice is completely yours.
True believers NEVER force Christianity on people.
In fact, true believers love people, no matter what sin they’re involved in.
Megan Rapinoe, as a true believer of Jesus Christ, along with other true believers, we love you.
It’s an offer that you can accept or refuse.
No one hates a fireman when he comes to the rescue.
For years the homosexual elites push their message of tolerance while having zero tolerance for those that hate the sin of homosexuality.
Regarding love, the Lord Jesus instructed His true believers about love.
Matthew 5:44-48 (NKJV Strong’s)
“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.”
There’s no question that homosexuals hate the God we serve and His Word.
In fact, they believe that hating us is the right thing to do, yet, they want true believers to love the sin they’re in.
But how can you love the sin they’re in when the sin of homosexuality brought upon humans an incurable disease? The love of God within us would want to warn people that practice the sin of homosexuality to quit before consequential judgment falls on them.
STD is the consequential judgment imposed on all those that commit sexual immorality.
A true believer that loves homosexuals will warn people of the consequences so they could avoid the “…penalty of their error…”
Sadly, homosexuals would rather you be silenced so they could sin in peace.
But there’s a greater penalty beyond STDs. If you repent before you die, you will avoid the penalty (see Romans 6:23), but if you die without repentance, you will be sent to hell to await the Great White Throne Judgment (see Revelation 20:11-15).
After your death, there will be no mercy, grace, the blood of Jesus will not be available to you, or the love of God (see John 3:16-21).
Not realizing that the Lord loved them so much.
Jesus was sent by the Father to die for the sin of the whole world. The Father demonstrated His love for us, in that “….while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
That’s true love beyond measure.
So, NYPD will pursue their case against someone defacing Megan Rapinoe’s poster in the subway because she’s a practicing homosexual, but we offer to anyone involved in sin the ONLY remedy.
The Lord Jesus Christ.

WARNING: You will say that this is “hate speech.
But since when pointing out the facts is “hate speech?”
What is “hate speech?”
Wikipedia defines hate speech as “a statement intended to demean and brutalize another, or the use of cruel and derogatory language on the basis of real or alleged membership in a social group. Hate speech is speech that attacks a person or a group on the basis of protected attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.”
For instance, if I were to say, “I hate transgender people, or let’s attack a transgender person,” this would be considered hate speech under this definition. In fact, it’s inciting violence on a person for their sexual orientation or gender reassignment.
Both of which is undoubtedly against the principles of the Word of God.
True Christians will not do this or tolerate this behavior (see Matthew 5:43-48).
You know you’ve reached a level of insanity when you elevate homosexuality and gender reassignment through surgical means to a race of people.
It’s not normal according to God’s Word.
Proof of abnormality is when you reject the commonly accepted, and practiced norms of male and female interactions, customs, and relationships.
For instance, you know it’s not normal for males to run track against females.
It’s not normal for males to fight in the boxing ring against females.
It’s not normal for males to compete in beauty pageants.
It’s not normal for males to have babies.
It’s not normal for men to wear women’s clothing.
It’s not normal for males to dress in a wedding dress and to walk down the aisle to marry a man.
You know transgenderism isn’t normal because it’s confusing.
That’s why men have to be very careful not to lust with their eyes. You could be looking at a perfectly surgically altered female that’s a male.
The hijacking of the Civil Rights Movement, in particular, the 14th Amendment “Equal Protection” clause is a deliberate escalation of a class of sin.
The 14th Amendment is in regards to Black people given rights, bring Blacks to become normal American citizens. Blacks were no longer second class citizens.
Homosexuals or same sex oriented people, and transgender people were already American citizens.
Marriage isn’t about equality as Americans. It was about bringing confusion to an equal footing of what’s considered millennial normal.
From the beginning, male and female. From the beginning marriage is between one male and one female.
Man breaks away from God’s ordained order, establish disorder, and make abnormal normal.
Over time, acceptance increased and resistance decreased.
Comedy normalized acceptance. Walter Matthau, Jack Lemon, Lawrence Martin, Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Tyler Perry, just to name a few, strategically helped the cause of transvestism and transgenderism in the acceptance of males dressing as females.
If you could laugh at it, it’s accepted.
Porn in threesomes or orgies also planted seeds of acceptance.
God and true believers are villains. Homosexuals and transgenders are now victims. The Bible is vilified and declared out of touch with modern progressive man. God is insane, abnormal, and all that believe, and practice the Bible are bigots, discriminant, intolerant, and culturally out of touch.
Genderless birth certificates. Non gender conformity. Marriage certificates. Federal taxes. Certain forms requiring gender identity are altered.
The insanity MUST BE ACCEPTED OR ELSE!!!!
It’s insanity to have sex with the same gender.
Especially when the CDC warns of STDs, and the increased risk when multiple partners are involved.
Proof of the insanity is when consequential judgment is imposed when participating in same sex, and there’s a transmission of bodily fluids during anal or oral sex.
Paul said that they “…receive in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”
But is there a penalty for changing their gender?
Isaiah 5:20 is the answer.
You have to remember, transgender people practice immoral sex.
Proof of this is when a transgender male still possess ovaries.
She is still a she, even when they’ve changed their gender to male.
1 Corinthians 14:33a tells us that “God is not the author of confusion….”
First, what’s happened is that fallen man has become marginally successful in defining transgender reassignment as normal as a child, conceived by sex, and birthed with their natural sex assignment.
The second thing is that if you could pass a series of laws to prevent reasonable free speech to declare surgical reassignment, changing a person’s gender, insane, you could sue or criminalize a person.
And third, if you could make transgenders, along with male and female homosexuals, and transvestites, a special class of people based on the 14th Amendment, they would be entitled to Constitutional protections.
All these things require suppressing God’s Word regarding “He made them male and female.”
What happens when you have a transgender person go to the hospital to be treated?
It’s clear that biologically, doctors MUST treat patients according to their biological make up. Otherwise, the medicine can’t work.
Doctors are forced to go back to a transgender’s birth certificate to determine its sex at birth so they could medically treat the patient. And transgenders are forced to tell their doctors what sex they were born with at birth.
So, when it comes to the Scriptures, when the world wants to impose their confusion on everyone, I have the choice to accept their confusion or reject it.
I also have the right to call a person by their original gender.
This is offensive to transgenders because they’re trying to get you to accept their confusion. The way they know that they’re accepted in their condition, is when you surrender to their surgical reassignment by calling them by their new name.
The whole intent of acting is to get you to get into their character. With such a convincing show, you don’t see who they were originally.
When you’re not fooled and you refuse to accept their gender reassignment, you’re a “BIGOT.”
But this sounds so much like being born again by the Lord.
We tell people that the Lord changed our lives and sinners don’t believe it.
The body doesn’t show a change. But the behavior shows the change and the body simply acts it out. The behavior happens in the spirit of a person.
So what transgenders are attempting to do is by changing the outside and alter the chemicals to get the body to conform to its new gender, a real noticeable change took place.
And that’s the real story about being different.
Change the outside to make it look like a change took place on the inside.
And if you don’t accept science’s established medical means to surgically reassign a person, you’re a bigot.
Wikipedia defines a bigot as “Prejudice is an affective feeling towards a person or group member based often on that person’s group membership (tribal behavior). The word is often used to refer to preconceived, usually unfavourable, feelings towards people or a person because of their political affiliation, sex, gender, beliefs, values, social class, age, disability, religion, sexuality, race/ethnicity, language, nationality, beauty, occupation, education, criminality, sport team affiliation or other personal characteristics. In this case, it refers to a positive or negative evaluation of another person based on that person’s perceived group membership.”

Years ago, I attended a Baptist Church in Brooklyn, NY.
As a young teenager, newly saved, there were things that were good in attending this particular church and there were some things that I didn’t understand.
Generally, the sin of homosexuality wasn’t preached about.
In fact, sexual immorality was not one of those subjects either.
There were homosexual choir masters, piano players in the Baptist church I’ve attended.
3 or 5 have paid the price and are no longer on earth. To this day, I don’t know if repentance from dead works and faith towards God became evident in their lives.
I will say that I was “propositioned” by one of them, on a couple of occasions right after Sunday service concluded. But when you know that a male is “funny,” when you observed effeminate tendencies, even though you didn’t know anything about the sex acts of homosexuals, I knew enough not to consider it.
Of the two that remain, one pastors an inclusion church in California and the other still works in the music and acting industry.
Inclusion is just a cloak name for homosexual affirming house of worship.
In the Black community, “shacking up” or having a baby out of “wedlock” was clearly frowned upon. But it was not at an alarming rate.
In the 50’s and 60’s, single parenting were in the single digits.
One statistic declared that during the 50’s and 60’s, 70% of Black households had two parents, obviously male and female that were married.
I believe that this generation attended church services and held the reputation of a normal family setup to be in high regard. Folks didn’t like it when neighbors disdained such relationships that didn’t conform to Biblical standards.
But the one thing that I’ve noticed is that regarding homosexuality, it was much more a closet issue, but you’ve observed the tendencies. Especially among choir masters, pianists, and male choir members.
Now even though it appeared that among certain congregations that there wasn’t anything going on, don’t be fooled.
Every now and then you would hear about deacons and pastors sneaking around committing adultery and fornication, but also bisexuality.
For many that have been in church and observed these episodes, you may have had these scenarios where it ranged from blatant to covert, and everything in between.
But one thing is certain.
God and the Bible is constant and never changed, nor accepted any sexual immorality.
Numbers 25:1-4 (NKJV Strong’s) “Now Israel remained in Acacia Grove, and the people began to commit harlotry with the women of Moab. They invited the people to the sacrifices of their gods, and the people ate and bowed down to their gods. So Israel was joined to Baal of Peor, and the anger of the Lord was aroused against Israel. Then the Lord said to Moses, “Take all the leaders of the people and hang the offenders before the Lord, out in the sun, that the fierce anger of the Lord may turn away from Israel.”
This may be the OT, but the Lord never changed His stance in the NT.
It’s called “consequential judgment.”
Romans 1:26-27 (NKJV Strong’s) “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”
And when it came to entering into heaven in the condition of sin……
1 Corinthians 6:9-13 (NKJV Strong’s) “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 homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. Foods for the stomach and the stomach for foods, but God will destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
The Scriptures are clear that you can’t bring sin into heaven where the Holy Lord of heaven and earth dwells.
What happened in the houses of worship?
People, church leadership, and pastors grew weary of the commands of the Lord and tendencies, and preferences “suppress the knowledge of the truth in unrighteousness.”
Churches that accepted homosexuality experienced considerable decrease in attendance.
In the days where there were covert homosexuality, sort of like a “don’t ask, don’t tell” aspect, many churches had filled church services. However, once the pastoral leadership shifts into performing same sex weddings, people that maintained the standard of the Word of God voiced their objections and make for the exits.
But some have maintained their Biblical objection but remained members of that local church.
But why do people, church leaders, and pastors grow weary of the commands of the Lord?
A wide range or combination of answers.
Sadly, participation in sexual immorality is at the top of the list.
A person may develop an emotionally sympathetic attachment to sexual sins. Or there may be family members engaged in the sin of homosexuality and to tell them that they’re in sin is too much for them to bear.
Most people avoid confronting friends or family members and risk denying the Lord and His command to be holy.
Then there’s the outside “peer” pressure asserted by outside organizations or political connections.
These political connections lurk within many historic houses of worship.
To be outspokenly against homosexuality definitely risk any associations with those in politics.
Of course there were other vicious winds applying pressure for that local assembly to accept homosexuality.
While all of this went on, many family members were losing loved ones to HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.
The consequential judgment of the sin of homosexuality manifested but what’s happened is that as long as homosexuals are “happy,” we could mitigate the disease associated with homosexuality by offering medical services, HIV/AIDS check for those practicing homosexuality, and other support services to give the appearance that this wasn’t judgment from the Lord.
The social agenda overshadowed the primary purpose of the local assembly.
The hijacking of the victories achieved by the Civil Rights movement was stolen by the elite homosexuals.
Some Blacks that worshipped in many denominational churches led by Black pastors gave in to the political, cultural, and social pressure.
The preaching of the Word of God regarding the Scriptures teaching that homosexuality is an abomination was deemed “hate speech.”
Yet, many Black people continued to acquire HIV/AIDS.
The Word of God offered a warning and deliverance from sin.
It’s like and it’s no different than turning away the help of a firefighter.
They risk their lives to rescue people but they turn the rescuers away.
But today, we’re seeing denominations or organizations of homosexual churches pop up. Instead of people turning away from sin, more people are assembling to honor homosexuality.
Many people in houses of worship have capitulated.
People’s attitude is that God must accept the way that I am.
People have demanded that God and His Word change and never the other way around.
The blame is squarely placed on the Creator and no responsibility for sin is accepted by fallen man.
Exactly what fallen man wants in order to continue in sin.
Just read Isaiah 5:20-21.

No, it probably wasn’t Antifa, but perhaps, just a few disagreeing people in homosexuality that disagree with the leadership at Chick fil A regarding their Biblical stance on marriage.
That according to the Scriptures, marriage is between one male and one female.
Some that participate or support people in the vile sin of homosexuality fiercely disagree with the Bible.
You have that right to disagree but when you look at the Scriptures, and the Lord offers deliverance from sin, it’s in your best interest to consider the offer.
Now if you have a better offer than to have your sins forgiven and grace and mercy extended to you before you die, we’d like to know.
The incentive to get saved is to recognize that one day we all will die.
But Who said that we have to die? And importantly, if the Lord told us that we have to die, and why we have to die, we’re left with a choice.
We can ignore it and hope for the best. We could believe in another god other than the God of the Bible to be delivered and set free from sin, and take a calculated chance. Or we could accept the offer from the Bible and know with certainty that His plan to save man is the best offer.
Sadly, another Gay Pride Month passed and taking your anger out on a facility doesn’t solve anything.
But it’s consistent with the way the world operates to express anger against Jesus and His true followers.
We pray that their eyes and hearts, and minds would be open to see the truth and not express anger and violence.
We do not communicate hatred.
All we do as true believers is offer the truth in love.
There’s hope in Jesus.

When you question people that claim to know the Lord and even call themselves “pastors” while practicing homosexuality, being that last month was “Gay Pride” Month, you’d expect them to be proud to talk about homosexuality.
In this interview, you’ll see why coming out of the closet is still a tough issue for many practicing homosexuals.
The Fallen State TV, by Jessie Lee Patterson interviewed Curt D. Thomas, of The Renewed Church of Los Angeles. Curt Thomas claims to be a pastor but is a practitioner of homosexuality.
You can’t be a Christian or a pastor and claim to be active in sin.
But that’s what LGBT want you to believe. That it’s possible to follow God while practicing sin.
But we’re also seeing that people want God to be a certain way.
Any way, when you watch the interview, keep in mind that delusion and lies within a person is required to remain a practitioner of sin.
The moment of truth comes when truth shared in love hits the mind.
Notice what Paul said in Romans 1:18-19 (NKJV Strong’s) “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.”
To remain in any sin, you have to suppress the truth. In other words, you fight with everything you have to keep truth from effectively forcing you to make a choice to keep sin or walk away from sin.
The convicting power of the Holy Spirit will do just that.
Challenge the mind to reject sin.
To keep sin, you must suppress the truth in unrighteousness.
Fortunately, if you look in the like and dislikebuttons on YouTube, 12 thousand liked the video and 1.2 thousand disliked the video.
Which means that a minority of people didn’t like the video.
We’ve always noted that a small minority of homosexuals exist in the nation. But also be mindful that even if you’re not involved in the sin of homosexuality, you might be a supporter of those that practice the vile sin of homosexuality.
We may have family members and close friends involved in the vile sin of homosexuality, and to say anything Biblically true about hope in Jesus to be delivered from this sin, the world calls it “hate” speech.
The world want you to believe that preaching the Bible and living out the Word of God does more harm to people.
Patterson didn’t preach to Thomas but the morality of his questions at the beginning of this video, as well as using the theological approach to define “The Fallen Man,” was textbook lawyering.
Truth hurts but in the end, truth helps.
That’s why Jesus said, “You shall know the truth and the truth will make you free.”
Lies never made one person free.
In order to stay in sin, lies must be built upon lies to keep the lie going.
And when truth comes, the lie can’t stand.
Now just as a warning, expletives are used and while I don’t condone the use, you will see that this homosexual “pastor” clearly isn’t as holy as you think.

Acts 3:19 (NKJV Strong’s) “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord…”
The word “Converted” is from Strong’s Concordance Dictionary and Vine’s Expository Dictionary of NT words…..“g1994. ἐπιστρέφω epistrephō; from 1909 and 4762; to revert (literally, figuratively or morally): — come (go) again, convert, (re-)turn (about, again).”
2. epistrepho (ἐπιστρέφω, 1994), “to turn about, turn towards” (epi, “towards” and No. 1), is used transitively, and so rendered “convert” (of causing a person to turn) in Jas. 5:19-20.”
We understand that “conversion therapy” has more of a Christian counselor, psychologist’s perspective but when LGBT points its finger at the church regarding conversion, then from a therapy aspect, we need to look at the definition of therapy.
Therapy: therapy | ˈTHerəpē |
noun (plural therapies)
treatment intended to relieve or heal a disorder: a course of antibiotic therapy | cancer therapies.
• the treatment of mental or psychological disorders by psychological means: he is currently in therapy | [as modifier] : therapy sessions.
mid 19th century: from modern Latin therapia, from Greek therapeia ‘healing’, from therapeuein ‘minister to, treat medically’.
When it comes to dealing with homosexuals, we could see that such “therapy” identifies its source from a mental perspective, not a healing of the physical body.
So if you’re dealing with conversion therapy, you’re looking to “turn about” and “treatment of mental or psychological disorders by psychological means.”
But also take note of the etymological origin of the word “therapy.”
“….healing…minister to, treat medically.”
1 Peter 2:24-25 (NKJV Strong’s) “…who Himself (Jesus) bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed. For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.”
Biblical salvation is also described as a healing.
Now I know that many WOF/Charismatic denomination of people will strongly say that this is physical healing ONLY.
If you’re open to receive, it can and does include both.
I wouldn’t call it “spiritual healing,” but would just use it as an analogy.
Jesus ministered healing to the physical body BEFORE His crucifixion.
But if you look closely, the Lord Jesus received stripes on His back moments BEFORE He was nailed to the cross.
As a side issue, a preacher once said that the 39 stripes that the Lord Jesus received on His back before crucifixion are symbolic of the 39 original diseases.
Folks, that individual that mentioned 39 stripes as the original diseases never gave a verifiable source for his information and that’s where the problem is. If there’s a preacher that give you no conclusive, verifiable sources, mark that down and exercise caution. These days, you have to vet everything you hear.
So regarding that information, just put 39 stripes back into it’s proper contextual perspective and LEAVE IT THERE.
Now remember that I’ve said it meant “both”….
Look at Matthew 8:16-17 (NKJV Strong’s) “When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:
“He Himself took our infirmities
And bore our sicknesses.”
The bottom portion of the verse is quoted from Isaiah 53:4.
So why just limit 39 original diseases. Obviously, if you’re talking about also sicknesses linked to the 39, then why not say all diseases? Especially when there’s no confirmed record of 39 original diseases.
Getting back on conversion therapy, states have used their legislative process in targeting the closure 1st Amendment. Your freedom to help people and the free for people to seek help to deal with being delivered from homosexuality is at stake.
In one state, where giving drivers licenses to illegal immigrants, they’ve placed in their law a clause to prevent their drivers license law to illegal immigrants immunity of a statewide referendum by the people.
In other words, the people in that state cannot vote to overturn that law by referendum.
Just imagine every conversion therapy law with an attachment of an immunity from referendum clause.
This would be unconstitutional and MUST BE CHALLENGED in the SCOTUS.
Now some people need professional psychological help, make no mistake about it. Board certified Christian psychological counseling does have some viable benefits.
However, much more important is that if you’re involved in sin, the only cure is found in the Lord Jesus.
Matthew 11:28-30 (NKJV Strong’s) “Come to Me (Jesus), all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
John 3:5-7 (NKJV Strong’s) “Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’
John 4:13-14 (NKJV Strong’s) “Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
John 7:37-38 (NKJV Strong’s) “On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
When we come to the Lord, the Lord will give you rest, and He will give you living water, to never thirst for again.
This is an offer to be delivered.
Offers could be received or rejected. It’s up to you.
John 8:34-36 (NKJV Strong’s) “Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
You don’t have to remain hopeless. There’s hope in Jesus.
The Lord Jesus can make you free when you repent, and be converted that your sins may be blotted out.
This is true conversion therapy.
