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.
“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.
Rev. Voddie Bauchum, pastor of preaching at Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, Texas responding to the debauchery of gay pride parades: “The homosexual community is NOT filled with people who are just like everyone else. Their proclivity for depraved behavior is farther down the Romans 1 slippery slope than most. And, unlike the rest of us sinners, they have parades to celebrate and demand the embrace of their depravity. THAT is the difference! For all you Christians who continue to ask, “why do we treat THIS sin differently?” let this be your answer. This and the fact that 1) this sin is one of the few labeled as an abomination, 2) this sin is the only one judged with fire and brimstone, 3) this sin has the unique privilege of blaspheming the very image of God, the nature of man, and the relationship between Christ and his church, and 4) this sin is one of the only ones with a public agenda designed to promote it’s acceptance and punish the biblical view of it’s sinfulness.”
The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.
Tell the righteous it will be well with them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds. Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them! They will be paid back for what their hands have done. Isaiah 9:9-11 NIV
Good news to report amidst the serial bad news that continues to gush from the office chambers of the apostate wing of American Christianity. Bishop David Maxwell a former vocal supporter of homosexual marriage and its rider issues, strongly denounced it and renounced his support of it in an May 19th oped.
Via the Gospel Herald:
One of Lansing, Michigan’s most prominent Black pastors, Bishop David Maxwell, had been quoted in the press in May of 2012, as saying that he agreed with homosexuals and lesbians who say that so called gay marriage is a “civil right”.
Maxwell, Pastor of Eliezer Temple Church in Lansing, Michigan, has also served as head of Mayor Virg Bernero’s Office of Faith-based Initiatives, was quoted as saying:
“Many of my comrades in the faith community have a struggle and cannot separate the theology with the civics of the president executing fairness and equity for all persons, It’s a civil right. The sad thing about it is: You would have thought that the African-American pastoral or theological community would have sensitivity when they themselves have struggled civil rights-wise.”
Maxwell also praised President Barack Obama for promoting an agenda to redefine marriage as other than between one man and one woman, “”I think the president is to be commended. He did not allow his own Christian philosophy or theology to dominate his presidential responsibility.” However, in a recent letter dated May 19, 2014, Bishop Maxwell has clearly changed his mind regarding his support of marriage redefinition and his criticism of predominantly Black churches as being “homophobic”.
“After reading statements attributed to me in a recent article, of which did not completely state my position on same sex marriage, and may lead some to view my statements as an endorsement of sort of same sex marriage. I am compelled to set the record straight”.
Maxwell also recanted all of his previous accusations against black churches for being “homophobic”.
Homosexuals at a “gay pride” parade retaliated against a black Oklahoma City Church because the church had cars parked illegally on their property towed away. Police said Anointed Acts Ministries had the legal right to do so and didn’t have to have signs posted. Interesting how the lesbian woman in the video was so adamant that gays never commit violent acts. NEVER. Absolutely not. And we won’t even talk about all the arrests for fake antigay hate crimes.
