Congregation Pitches Tent Towards Gomorrah Instead Of Heavenly Jerusalem
Calvary Baptist Church in Washington DC has selected a “married” lesbian couple to co-pastor the congregation.
Yet this is not the first time this particular church has deliberately violated with enthusiastic forethought what has traditionally been categorized as the theology of the body..
In 2014, the congregation appointed an interim pastor that was transgender, apparently to lead the church from bad to worse.
In defense of surrendering the congregation's pulpit to a transgendered pastor, the chair of the Calvary Baptist personnel committee told the Associate Baptist Press, “Quite simply, this is who we --- Calvary Baptist Church, specifically, and Christians more generally --- are called to be a place that reflects God's love and recognizes, affirms, and nurtures God's call in each of our lives.”
By such a statement, the reader is to assume that whatever warped inclinations an individual might feel are to be understood as the divine calling in our lives.
So if a pastor expressed a desire to and actually touched buxom teen girls inappropriately, does that mean that a church is obligated to celebrate such a ministerial candidate by granting the individual a position of leadership?
The advocates of progressivism will respond but the pedophile psychologically damages the underaged minor.
But what do you think “Pastor” Robinson is doing to his own children since he did not spring his desire to live in this manner on anyone until after becoming a father?
For now, it seems his wife is standing by him.
But will she continue to do so once his distinctively male appendage is hacked off like a whithered garden weed?
What those falling over the edge of rank apostasy and the vilest manifestations of paganism really mean when they invoke terms like “love”, “affirmation” and “nurturing” is that they will only support those plunging along with them into the depths of libertinism and licentiousness.
For would this sort of “church” stand by someone that admitted to uttering the “N-word” under their breath some thirty years ago?
Better yet, as a more revealing test of their sincerity, perhaps this congregation should welcome into its pulpit a fire and brimstone pastor that would expose these kinds of sheol-spawned delusions for what they really are.
