If you are silent on the issues of homosexuality in your churches, then you are useless.
If you turn a blind eye to the scourge and infiltration of LGBT affirmation in our pews you are a hireling and need to find another “occupation”.
If your church is flying a “pride” flag, you are not of God, nor do you represent Him in any aspect.
If you are riding the fence to appear more “loving” and “accepting” of wicked acts that God calls abominations, you yourself are wicked and weak.
If you are allowing homosexuals to participate in your church’s works of ministry, you are an agent of Satan and his works of darkness.
Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14
You are to preach the WHOLE COUNSEL of God, which not only includes His love, but His wrath and His judgment of sin.
To welcome open, unrepentant sin into your midst is actually to hate the ones committing those sins, because with your welcoming embrace you are denying their need for repentance which would lead them toward life instead of death. (It is also to hate the faithful saints in your pews who want to live in holiness and righteousness. You are perpetuating a lie upon your flocks and leading in paths of unrighteousness.)
To love them is to give them the good news of Christ’s atoning work on the cross that is the only way to salvation, and that they MUST turn from sin. All sin.
And then they must be obedient to God’s word.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. John 14:15
If you are of the opinion that you can be gay AND Christian, understand that this goes against everything God has said in His word. You cannot explain it away, or twist it to say what you want. If you believe this lie, then you are suppressing the truth and your heart has been darkened. If you are affirming those who are acting wickedly, then God says your partake in their wickedness.
Although they know full well God’s just sentence—that those who practice such things deserve to die —they not only do them, but even applaud others who practice them. Romans 1:32
So know, pastors, when you succumb to adopt the depravity of the culture into your churches, the demons rejoice and you are a tool of the enemy. There IS forgiveness if you repent. But you are unqualified to be behind a pulpit. So step down now.
To pastors who DO faithfully preach the truth of God’s word:
Press on in boldness even when the world despises and mocks you. We need men (Yes, I said MEN!) in our pulpits who stand unashamed of the gospel and unashamed to stand upon ALL the precepts of scripture. Men who are unafraid to warn against the wolves at the door and the ones who have crept into our midst. Men who reach out to the lost with love and compassion, but who will not cave in to the temptation to minimize certain sins because they might be deemed offensive. So yes, I say again, THANK YOU!
Pastors, for better or for worse, you are in positions of great influence. Some of you bring honor and glory to God. Some of you bring shame upon His name. You will answer for all you have done in His name. I pray you are in the camp of those will receive a crown of reward in glory, and not among those who will hear, “Depart from me, you workers of iniquity. I never knew you.”
