Indianapolis House of God church victim of gay church deception

Channel 8 WISHTV carried this interesting story involving a gay church in Indianapolis.

A church congregation that was expecting to share space with another was forced to worship outside on Sunday. Now, the pastor is threatening to take legal action. The pastor of Powerhouse Church of Indianapolis gave 24-Hour News 8 a copy of the contract he had with The House of God Church to use its facility. He said when they showed up for their first service this morning, they weren’t allowed inside. A church isn’t just defined by its four walls. It’s defined by the people who worship there. And standing under the sun along Schofield Avenue, members of Powerhouse Church of Indianapolis proudly put that on display.

Who wrote this “news story”, one of the church members? Since when does a real reporter editorialize in a news story about whether the church is a true representative of a biblical congregation or not? But we digress on the media’s incestuous desires for all things gay. The House of God made no comment as to the reason why it denied access to the incognito gay church.

mq“This was to be our first service here. We had signed a temporary lease for three months to worship here while we were in transition to our next space,”  said the church leader Keith McQueen. “We gave them money, we had signatures and when we showed up, we were denied access not only to the church, but even onto the property.”

Some are calling the situation a publicity stunt to attract more members.  Given the slant of the report, it sounds like they found someone willing to whip up the emotive frenzy in the church’s favor.

Pastors beware, homosexual churches have went full scale incognito! Before you allow any church to rent your facility, you should inquire as to their beliefs on homosexuality. Ask pointed, direct questions about the church’s doctrine, the lifestyle of the pastor or leader and who they are connected to. In addition do some basic online research to see who these people are BEFORE you agree to let sex heretics use your facility to “worship” a god different than the one you know to be true. In addition, update your  bylaws and policies NOW to reflect what activities are allowed on your property.

This deception is something GCM Watch pointed out before here. Gay churches are disguising their true identities for one reason: to gain access that in most cases they could never have. In order to accomplish that four deceptive tactics are used.

1. They no longer own the term “gay” in connection with their churches. Now, the term of choice is “inclusive”, “inclusion” or “LGBTQI”. They dont want to be known as a gay church for same reason they dropped identifying with the term homosexual. Once inclusion becomes a liability, they will drop it as well and find another deceptive term to hide behind.
2. They have names that ape pentecostal churches i.e. Powerhouse
3. They ape church titles, forms of dress, etc. Wearing long robes, clergy collars, calling themselves bishops, apostles, etc.
4. Speaking “churchanese” which fools unsuspecting churches, especially those who need the extra money.

Whether the House of God church could legally do what they did is for the law to decide.

Notable Quotes: Cardinal Francis George

Cardinal Francis George, head of the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago, responding in the organization’s official newspaper to the State’s demand that citizens accept its gay marriage edicts or face social persecution

Chicago cardinal Francis George has apologised for the sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests“What was once a request to live and let live has now become a demand for approval,”  “The ‘ruling class,’ those who shape public opinion in politics, in education, in communications, in entertainment, is using the civil law to impose its own form of morality on everyone.

“We are told that, even in marriage itself, there is no difference between men and women, although nature and our very bodies clearly evidence that men and women are not interchangeable at will in forming a family.  Nevertheless, those who do not conform to the official religion, we are warned, place their citizenship in danger.

“The inevitable result is a crisis of belief for many Catholics.  Throughout history, when Catholics and other believers in revealed religion have been forced to choose between being taught by God or instructed by politicians, professors, editors of major newspapers and entertainers, many have opted to go along with the powers that be.

“This reduces a great tension in their lives, although it also brings with it the worship of a false god,”  “It takes no moral courage to conform to government and social pressure. It takes a deep faith to ‘swim against the tide.’

Chick Fil A Founder, Truett Cathy, passes

CATHYTruett Cathy, the larger than life founder of Chick Fil A and consummate humanitarian passed away Monday, September 8th. Praise for Cathy’s life and work has been widespread.

Under Cathy’s leadership Chick Fil A became the nation’s leading fast food restaurant while never compromising his Christian beliefs. The stores remained closed on Sundays so that employees could attend church or enjoy time with their families.

Cathy also supported ministries which assisted people in overcoming homosexuality. People empowerment was a strong tenet of his belief system. CFA for many years under Cathy, provided the now defunct Exodus International with funds and food support for events. That support ended in 2012 when homosexual activists, angered by Cathy’s son Don remarks about gay marriage persuaded the company to discontinue all support for such ministries and organizations.

Pastor DL Foster , founder of the Overcomers Network, released a statement saying, “The Overcomers Network today remembers the great support of overcoming ministry by Mr. Truett Cathy (1921-2014) who welcomed change and affirmed redemption for all people. His support of ministries which helped people overcome homosexuality is a great testament to his character and integrity as a follower of Jesus Christ. Rest in peace from your labors!”

Chattanooga Pastor’s balanced message on sexuality goes viral

Pastor Robby Gallanty of Chattanooga, TN didnt set out to create a viral video. He just wanted to equip his congregation with compassionate, but uncompromising truth. The message was part of his “True North” series. Like other messages, they posted it on the church website. The end result was an incredible message on sexuality from a Kingdom perspective. It has drawn predictable widespread condemnation from the progay critics and deep admiration from those who love truth and love what truth does when it is given from a pure heart. Watch for yourself.

Police: Bishop David Huskins dead from “tragic incident”

WGAA 1340 AM reported late yesterday that Bishop David Huskins was found dead in his home.

davidhuskinsPolk County Police say they found Bishop David Huskins inside his home in the Meadow Lakes community late Monday afternoon. He was pronounced dead on the scene. According to Polk County Police Chief Kenny Dodd, detectives believe there was no foul play involved in the tragic incident.

Huskins sent out and email to followers July 10th saying that health concerns could remove him from ministry.

“It has been almost twenty years ago since I had open heart surgery to repair a hole in my heart that had become critical. That started a series of mostly ignored warnings to take care of my heart health. Then in November, I had a mild heart attack (if there is such a thing) and that put me on a path to great introspection of all the areas of my life I had not properly dealt with. I realized I had been in some active church leadership office or role all but the first twelve years of my entire life and even in those first twelve years I taught Sunday School for two years in the little country Baptist church near my home. While I am grateful for all the Lord has allowed me to do I knew sometimes I had let ministry be a substitute for God. I felt Him dealing with me to let go of areas and delegate and release and spend more time with Him and with people not just always in a pulpit. I had started that process much earlier with seeking to place others in charge of the church and! daily duties but still had not relinquished the active roles.

Then over the past few weeks I experienced Congestive Heart Failure twice which forced the cancellation of our annual conference and now I have been told medically I am at the point of complete exhaustion while still dealing with Chronic Congestive Heart Failure. After three nights in I C U and another two night regular hospital stay along with several follow up heart procedures and this past week a Transient Ischemic Attack (minor stroke) and the adaptations of all the medicines (which in some cases have been a nightmare on their own) and the on-going recovery process and having been admitted to bed rest, I am now forced to make some significant and important changes immediately. Even though I have been feeling it and talking about it for a couple of years. The next 90 days minimal will be intensive times of physical therapy and monitoring both heart and neck arteries and avoiding the threat of another heart attack or stroke. Medically over twenty percent of people who ! experience a TIA have a full stroke within ninety days. TIAs are viewed as a warning unless used as a precaution. I am submitting to the precaution.

As most of you know I wrote over a year ago about the need for many of us to take a break, get counsel, seek a sabbatical or otherwise make changes. We even held a January Conference around that concept. I put a plan in place for a sabbatical or even a succession plan. We discussed many of these subjects but I then returned quickly to the rigors of ministry. Now it is medically required and physically necessary for me to adapt. Much of the battle and recovery is dealing with all the side effects and issues of the medicines I am on as well as the physical long term recovery. The truth is however the need for a real sabbatical is long over due. The effects of this mini-stroke and the medicines along with the energy lost from the congestive heart failures keep me very confused, often times unable to articulate my thoughts clearly and then also all the physical limits and battles. I am thankful that they say all that is temporary and will be over in time.”

While serving as head of the International Communion of Charismatic Churches, Huskins became ensnared in the controversy surrounding homosexual former Bishop Jim Swilley. Huskins sent GCMW an email and placed a public statement repuidiating Swilley, but soon after removed the public statement and denied he’d ever sent an email to us. GCM Watch reported on Bishop Huskins here and here.
