ERLC Conference features three EXLBGT speakers

natnconf-banner-edit

The Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) should be highly commended for the inclusion of three EXLGBT Christians in their speaker lineup for its upcoming October conference in Nashville.

Jackie Hill, Christopher Yuan and Rosario Butterfield are among some 28 featured speakers during the conference on the Gospel, Homosexuality and the Future of Marriage.

Among denominational bodies, none come close to the SBC’s active and ongoing engagements to educate and equip the church on its most pressing contemporary challenges.

Including former homosexuals in the dialogue helps to balance out the information perspective and affirms the redeeming work of God in the homosexual community.

Meet Obama’s new baby: Executive Order 11246

ObamagayAfter being pregnant for several years, President Barack Obama finally delivered a diseased baby.
“Many of you have worked for a long time to see this day coming.”, he told an audience on July 21st in the White House East Room.

And in keeping with the perverted upside down homosexual agenda, Obama wasn’t the father. He took on the role of the mother. The homosexual rights movement was the father.

Red State has all the details of what the new executive order amendment will mean for all US churches and nonprofits who hold the belief that homosexuality is a sin. After all, this was tailor made to persecute them and them only.

He With a Pen and a Phone will sign an executive order today forcing all private companies with government contracts to adopt policies giving lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender applicants special protection.  There is no exemption for religious beliefs or conscience, except in the very narrow case of “ministerial” employment (clergy).
Most large, for profit companies already have non-discrimination policies, and most of them have detailed gender identity protections.  Even most small companies that deal with the government are used to hiring quotas, 8A requirements, and other federal red tape.  This executive order is targeted at one group in particular: non-profits.

 It means that non-profit, religious groups, such as church-based daycare centers, adoption services, and soup kitchens will, in order to receive federal money, be forced to hire transgender and cross-dressing men and women, who don’t agree with the organization’s own values.  In fact, they’ll be forced to hire people who work against the organization’s values and conscience.

Obama’s signature will accomplish by fiat much of what the failed ENDA legislation would have done, with two key differences.  ENDA had broad exemptions which were negotiated into the latest drafts, which would protect most religious organizations from having their core values violated, and ENDA would have applied nationally, across the board.

Today’s executive order has none of the exemptions, and applies only to organizations accepting government funds.  This will push most religious organizations out of any partnerships with government programs, hindering their funding.  A scenario like this happened in Massachusetts in 2006, when Catholic Charities shuttered their adoption service rather than comply with Mass’ rule to allow homosexuals to adopt using their service.

The hope is that such groups who will hold fast to their beliefs will be denied the money and/or sued by some test case gay activist. That of course, will leave the money open for liberal groups to grab up and enrich themselves. Its also important to note that the original plan of attack by homosexual activists was the so called ENDA (Employment NonDiscrimination Act). They had been trying to get ENDA passed since 1994. This was their grand slam plan to finally get revenge on churches that wouldn’t “hire” them. But when ENDA  included religious exemptions, homosexuals dropped it quicker than a black conservative speaker at an NAACP meeting. Read this. The ONLY reason this piece of prime time legislation they had pinned all their hopes on for the last 20 years was dropped was because it would not persecute any churches. So, with his Executive Order Obama gave them what they really wanted. Not, employment equality. Revenge.

What’s not being mentioned (because they don’t want to alarm democrat influenced black churches) is how this executive order will damage the massive number of inner city black churches who depend on federal aid to operate their community programs.  Most of the news stories will focus on Catholics and Southern Baptists whom they hold up as poster children of gay hate.  Just know that’s an intentional part of the deception. Most of these black churches hold unwaveringly to the belief that homosexuality is a sin.  Back in 2007, President Bush sent out an urgent plea telling black churches they were “missing out” of tons of federal aid money. Many of them went running to get it. Now, Obama has them trapped.

This is reminiscent of what happened when President Clinton demanded that black folk and their churches get preferential treatment in housing and building loans from corporations like Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Clinton wanted to live up to his title as the “first black president” so he pushed hard to increase black home ownership. As banks and other financial institutions saw the potential to exploit financially ignorant blacks who desperately wanted to get into the “wealth building” phenom being preached to them nonstop from pulpits, an epic deception exploded. It became known as “predatory lending”. Since then, many churches have went into foreclosure and many black church members have lost the homes they testified “God blessed them with”.

GCMW told you in September 2013, this was coming.

“Not only that, they [gay activists] want the case against him to be the template against all of us who have like beliefs. We’ve prophesied this many times that homosexuals are eaten up with revenge. Every law they pass and every policy they advocate is about one thing: revenge.”

If a church accepts a 501(c)3 status it is granting the state the right to define a church as well as what a church can and cannot do, can and cannot say. Who they can and cannot accept or affirm. If a church refuses to submit to the requirements of the state (such as a requirement to marry two men or hire homosexuals who seek to destroy its belief system) the state can then penalize the 501(c)3 organization.

Homosexuals activists have been lusting for the day when they could tie “discrimination policies” to federal aid benefits, including 501c3.  As Obama reminded them, they have worked hard to see this day come to pass. Now, Obama has delivered.

God or mammon? The choice is now before you because you cannot serve both.

 

Notable Quotes: Dr. John MacArthur

macarthur1In an article published in The Blaze, Pastor John MacArthur responding to questions about the Presbyterian Church USA and other religious denominations that sanction homosexuality: “They have no allegiance to the Bible,” he said. “You go back to every one of those seminaries … for a century [they] have been deniers of biblical authority, they have no relationship to scripture, they are the apostate church, they are Satan’s church.”

New David Foster film tells the story of EXLGBT change

swsyvid

FRANKLIN, Tenn., July 15, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ — Newly released documentary “Such Were Some of You” confronts the rising tide of popular opinion by chronicling the stories of 29 former homosexual men and women who say that Jesus Christ has transformed their lives. Experts in psychology, (Dr. Julie Hamilton), biblical scholarship (Dr. Robert Gagnon) and ministry (Dr. Neil Anderson) add their voice to the claim that people have been leaving homosexuality for millennia.

Created to be used in Sunday School classes, support groups and other group settings, “Such Were Some of You” has been designed as a discipleship and equipping tool for the Body of Christ. The “witnesses to change” describe how they developed homosexual confusion, what the gay lifestyle was really like, how Jesus Christ set them free and the many ways that He has been healing and transforming their lives ever since. Participants include ex-gays from numerous ethnic backgrounds and age brackets, including one former gay activist who dramatically declares at one point, “I am free!”

This two-hour documentary is available on DVD in a “Regular Edition” and a “Leader’s Edition” (which includes a Discussion Guide and a license to screen the video in group settings). For more information, go to: www.SuchWereSomeOfYou.org and www.PurePassionMedia.org. Also available for screening in churches and conferences.
