Becoming a mouthpiece for satan has an intended side effect. Its called a strong delusion. More and more we are seeing the church of babylon and its false prophets desperately throw themselves into fire for their master. The latest: the very reverend (and very false) Gary Hall, Dean of the Washington National Cathedral. The “national cathedral” is under Episcopalian witchcraft. What is it about these creepy looking old white men in dying liberal churches who fancy themselves as saviors of the ‘gay youth’ population? Using the now debunked Matthew Shepherd “hate crime” narrative as the basis of his delusional lie, Hall blamed churches across the country for influencing American beliefs about homosexuality. [I want to say that I am personally guilty of this charge and will continue openly influencing.]
We must now have the courage to take the final step and call homophobia and heterosexism what they are. They are sin. Homophobia is a sin. Heterosexism is a sin. Shaming people for whom they love is a sin,” Hall asserted. “Only when all our churches say that clearly and boldly and courageously will our LGBT youth be free to grow up in a culture that totally embraces them fully as they are.”
Hall continued on spouting off typical gay activist talking points about sexual expression but made sure to pull out of his bag of tricks the “gay is a gift” lie first floated by gay christian heretic Mel White. In an interview with reporters following the message, Hall said that he believes “sexual orientation is a gift, and the religious question should be about how they responsibly use that gift.”
Newsflash, Gary Hall: there is no ‘responsible way to sin’. All sin is encoded with deadly consequences no human can hope to escape except by repentance and faith in Christ. Your lifetime False Teachers Club of America card is in the mail.
And since when did sin become a gift from God? The bible teaches all good and perfect gifts come from God” (James 1:17). If sin is good, then Hall is a direct descendant of Jeffery Dahmer. The only “god” who would give sin as a gift is satan. Hall and false teachers of his ilk wont tell you that the wages of sin is death. Its all about a tragic blame game, with sexually confused children caught as pawns in their evil schemes.
But there are also false prophets among the people, even as there are false teachers among you who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who brought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 Pet 2:1
Refuting a lie is not for the faint at heart. Liars, the bible says, spend a significant portion of their time devising their putrid concoctions. Lies, ultimately are about manipulating something that otherwise could not be breached under normal circumstances.
Woe to those who scheme iniquity, Who work out evil on their beds! When morning comes, they do it, For it is in the power of their hands. Micah 2:1
Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart; there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flatters himself in his own eyes that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated. The words of his mouth are trouble and deceit; he has ceased to act wisely and do good. He plots trouble while on his bed; he sets himself in a way that is not good; he does not reject evil. Psalms 36:1-4
While we sleep, liars lay awake planning their lies out and despising what is good. Having said that, lets look at four broad-based lies gay christians and their allies tell on the church and the bible.
1. Christians’ prejudice against homosexuals leads them to misread biblical texts about homosexuality.
Although as superficial a lie as one can tell, it nonetheless has made a serious impact of how some view the authority of scripture and the how it applies to sexual sins. This is the lie of misplaced blame. It supposes that Christians who disagree with homosexual behavior are the ones who created the biblical narrative opposing it, thus they are to blame for what it clearly says. To conveniently label all opposition to a sexual behavior —which carries a deadly spiritual and physical penalty— as “prejudice” is a ludicrous and illogical position. Its like saying opposition to suicide is prejudice against freewill. The truth is that the bible is straitforward about all sexual immorality and makes zero exemptions for homosexual behavior, no matter what context the behavior occurs in or whether the participants are willing or not. Prejudice is judgment without knowledge. But Christians who follow biblical teachings which clearly oppose all forms of homosexuality are acting with integrity and honesty to speak the truth despite the lies told against them.
2. Christian leaders speak out against homosexuality merely to raise funds and increase their visibility.
The lie of impropriety. Why not speak out to raise money? If the money is being used to further the truth, it becomes a necessary function of the mission, plain and simple. What media outlet is going to give Christian leaders free air time? Which ones will give free ad space? If free publicity is being denied due to media bias against Christian leaders who speak out against homosexuality, then raising money is ethical and should be expected. Homosexual activist organizations, particularly the religious ones speak out against Christian leaders while raising money and gain visibility but want to deny that same privilege to others?
3. Scriptures that condemn homosexual behavior have actually been mistranslated.
This is what we can label a tactical lie. Nothing is lost by simple making broad, but untrue assertions. Ergo, this is just another convenient tactic to muddy the waters and avoid honest debate about the truth. Has the bible been mistranslated when it comes to homosexuality? It depends on what your definition of mistranslation is. With gay christians mistranslation means anything that isnt lock-step with their warped interpretations. CARM (Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry) explains why there has been no mistranslaton. At the same time, every errant explanation spoken by a person claiming to be a Christian is no more applicable to the entire Christian faith as it is with any other group of people. We do know as an irrefutable statistical fact that 100% of bible passages [OT, NT] which mention homosexual behavior, condemn it using the strongest possible language. And each different writer who did so, did so independently of the other but all were guided by the inspiration of God.
4. Scriptures that condemn homosexual behavior have been taken out of context and do not apply to our present society.
This is the second version of the tactical lie aka specious argumentation. By casting doubt on the context of scripture, it produces doubt about its truthful application. Homosexual social strategists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen, write in their book “After the Ball” that homosexuals should “ muddy the moral waters, that is, to undercut the rationalizations that ‘justify’ religious bigotry and to jam some of its psychic rewards.” This tactic is stenuously adhered to by the gay christian movement.
First, lets ask these questions in response to this tactical lie. What authority determined that God’s laws and condemnation of homosexuality does not apply to contemporary society? Is this authority credible? Did this authority receive direct revelation from God that his immutable, eternal word has no application to modern society? When did this happen and who is the authority who makes this brazen claim? I will wager that if such a person existed they would be indentified as a prohomosexual cleric who self serving ideology benefits only a small contigent of sexual outlaws and not the greater good of humanity and certainly not the Christian family.
You have played the whore with many lovers; and would you return to me? says the Lord. Look up to the bare heights, and see! Where have you not been lain with? By the waysides you have sat waiting for lovers, like a nomad in the wilderness. You have polluted the land with your whoring and wickedness. Jeremiah 3: 1-2
Call it the 50 Shades of Gray, Religious Version. Or maybe it should be referred to as Church of the Living Dead. Either way, the American Church has fallen/jumped into the pit of immorality and is showing no signs of wanting to get out. Behaving more like a dog returning to its vomit instead of a bride waiting on her betrothed, the AC has left its first love. Like the foolish Galatians, the American Church has been bewitched and is under a heavy delusion.
Just one of the many lovers she is whoring with under the green trees of politics and compromise is the homosexual movement. Perhaps a sign of the steadily weakening resolve of the church to standfast is Charisma Magazine printing Canadian liberal theologian Ronald J. Siders oped with a deceptive headline attached. Christian media is in on the game as well. Sider is the president of Evangelicals for Social Action, which develops biblical solutions to social and economic problems. Actually, ESA is progay. And thats not a biblical solution to the sin of homosexuality.
Have parts of the church treacherously partnered with homosexuals to attempt to destroy God’s creative marriage design and rebuild it in their own image and likeness? Most certainly. But note the word attempt. Because despite their best efforts, they will miserably fail. Ask any of the people who attempted to build the tower of Babel.
Siders argues correctly that because of the partnership of deceived (aka inclusion) Christians with homosexuals, three key threats will materialize and directly impact the institutional church.
1. It would weaken the connection between marriage and procreation and the connection between biological parents and their biological children. Almost every court case supporting gay marriage explicitly downgrades the role of procreation in marriage. In the Massachusetts Supreme Court’s decision bringing in gay marriage, the court explicitly said the state was indifferent to family structure; that is, society has no preference for children growing up with both biological parents!
2. The embrace of gay marriage will almost certainly change what is taught in public schools. If in law gay marriages are equal to marriages of husbands and wives, then the schools will certainly begin to teach that to all our children as the proper view for every good citizen.
3. There will be a variety of pressures to silence people who believe homosexual practice is sin. Virtually all legal experts agree that if the law sanctions gay marriage, there will be a colossal confrontation between religious liberty and “gay rights.” Through licensure and government grants a wide variety of faith-based organizations will face growing pressure to abandon their stand on homosexual practice and gay marriage.
And he cites (as we have numerous times on GCMW) that homosexuals and their political allies are lying about exempting the church from gay marriage laws. Its just a deceptive shell game.
As Marc Stern of the American Jewish Congress has warned, once the law recognizes gay marriage, there will be court cases against religious institutions (colleges, universities, camp grounds, hospitals, adoption agencies, and so on) that refuse to treat legally married same-sex couples the same as married heterosexuals.
Similarly, it’s likely that government will slowly withdraw benefits from faith-based organizations that believe they shouldn’t treat legally married same-sex partners the way they treat husbands and wives. Gay activists will undoubtedly argue in the courts that government dare not “subsidize discrimination” and therefore government funds must not flow to faith-based organizations that oppose gay marriage or refuse to hire persons engaged in homosexual actions.
The issue in Sider’s sleight of hand article is not his accurate description of the problem, but the unbiblical “solutions” he posits. For example, Sider’s wolf skin is exposed when he says the solution to the homosexual issue is redesignation.
“First, we can demonstrate our desire to respect and treat gay people fairly. One significant way to do that would be to support the legal recognition of civil unions. (This may actually reduce promiscuity as well.)”
Beware the brokers of seduction.
One commenter thankfully came right out and said it.
Ronald Sider is a far left-wind socialist who is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He is about as “evangelical” as Jeremiah Wright — just more smooth and diplomatic, and deceptive, in the promotion of his agenda. This article is a good example of the smooth, slick way he promotes his left-wing agenda, posing as an “evangelical/charismatic.” I can see why someone who doesn’t know who Ronald Sider is or his past would be taken in. This typical ad hominem argument is typical of satan himself — “Because of your failures in this area, you have no right to speak in THAT area.” The enemy, the “accuser of the brethren,” constantly attempts to silence our voice and render us powerless by pointing out past failings or current weaknesses. There are a number of fallacies in the slick article above. Here are just a couple:
1. While the statistic is constantly presented — to beat Christians down — that Christians divorce at the same rate as non-Christians, this statistic is so misleading as to in actuality be used mostly as a lie.
2. Those who are on the frontlines defending our society against the onslaught of the influence of homosexual perversion and it’s attempt to justify itself by moral equivalence to normal marriage are NOT the ones committing adultery and getting divorced. Even if it were true that adultery abounds and half of all Christians who marry will eventually divorce — which it is NOT– that still does NOT characterize the lives of those who have been and continue to be true champions giving their very lives to defending the moral foundations of our nation for future generations. Of course, the likes of Ronald Sider and his comrades in the leftist media, love to expose the occasion leader caught in moral failure as yet another ad hominem argument against the whole Body of Christ.
Pastor Mike Campagna at Heart for God blog has an incredible writeup about false teachers, false prophets and false shepherds. He explains the differences between them as well as talks about how the devil uses “photoshop” religion to deceive both unbelievers and believers alike.
How to Tell a False Prophet:
1. A false prophet can have the ability to do signs and wonders. (Mark 13:22)
2. A false prophet declares out of his own imaginations and not Christ. (Ezekiel 13:2-3)
3. A false prophet can be bought. He speaks pleasantly to those who feed him. (Micah 3:5)
4. A false prophet disguises himself as a believer while all the time he’s under the control of the devil. (Matthew 7:15-23)
How to Tell a False Teacher:
1. A false teacher portrays himself as having knowledge when he does not. (1 Timothy 1:7)
2. A false teacher offers contrary doctrine to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (1 Timothy 6:3-5)
3. A false teacher speaks what people want to hear instead of what people need to hear. (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
4. A false teacher is bound to wickedness, unconverted and destined for destruction. (2 Peter 2:1-3)
How to Tell a False Shepherd:
1. A false shepherd is only concerned for himself and not the flock. (Ezekiel 34:2-3)
2. A false shepherd leads the flock astray in word and deed. (Jeremiah 50:6)
3. A false shepherd abandons the flock when they need him the most. (John 10:12)
4. A false shepherd does not exalt the Good Shepherd. (John 10:14-15)
With all types of bizarre, weird and unseemly teachings and practices coming out from so called leaders in the Christian church, you would do yourself a big favor by reading Pastor Mike’s entire blog and get educated so you can avoid the traps set by false trisectomy.

Perversion has hit the black church with a vengeance and it doesn’t seem to be coming from the pews. In Detroit, Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Great Faith Ministries conducted a bishop’s “consecration” event for two men. The video of the event and what the bishop did to the two men has sent waves of disgust through the church community. In an astonishing act of raw perversion, Jackson first tells the two men to get on their knees. After they submissively do so, he waves his hand indicating they are to lay face down on the floor of the church in front of a crowd of people (and presumably their wives and children).
After the men have laid face down, Jackson calls for his assistants to cover them with large white cloths which he explains that “You gotta be buried. You gotta die. So that Christ can live in you. Be prepared for burial”. The men are completely covered and Jackson grabs the ankles of the first man and acts as if he is praying. Almost as an afterthought he beckons for the assistant to give him a red cape which he throws on top of the first man.
Next, Jackson unexpectedly flings himself on top of the first man, his body and groin on the man’s buttocks where he shakes, writhes and grimaces as if there is a sex act going on. Surprisingly, the man does not move. When he repeats the same actions on the second man, some members of the audience stand, applaud and cheer.
Update: I’ve amended the original article headline based on several discussions regarding what was seen in the Jackson video. My original title was excessively misleading and I apologize for that.
You can find Dr. James A. Forbes of New York in pulpits, conventions and gatherings of many holiness-pentecostal denominations. Including his unfettered access to the Church of God in Christ. Forbes was featured at COGIC’s 2012 AIM convention held in Birmingham in June. Forbes conveniently cloaks his acid lies behind the background of being reared in the United Holy Church of America, a holiness Pentecostal denomination began in 1886. His father was a leader for many years in the denomination’s Southern District. His knowledge of the veneer of black church pentecostalism makes him an attractive guest to leaders who have no value for biblical integrity or sexual holiness.
You also may not know that Forbes is a false teacher who brags about his involvement with the homosexual “marriage” perversion. False teachers and perversion go together like a hand in a glove. According to the gay marriage organization Lambda Legal, Forbes is one of their main defenders and supporters. They use his quote on their website and urges supporters to use Forbes’ quote in their gay marriage “talking points”.
“I have officiated at wedding ceremonies for gay couples for 15 years, and I believe that gay marriage will do more for stable families and will not harm one single heterosexual marriage.”
Forbes is going to be a guest speaker for the Metropolitan Community Church for their upcoming convention. If you are unfamiliar with the MCC and its gaggle of sex cultic clerics look here, here and here. Warning: not safe for spiritually weak minds!
These false prophets are just as welcome at the “holiness” meetings as they are at the satanic altars. When leaders such as Bishop Charles Blake give these false teachers access to their churches and especially young people, its like letting a ravenous wolf into a room with lambs. Blake has a history of dancing cheek to cheek in the dark with the homosexuals and their allies but then claiming not to know them when he is exposed.
COGIC’s leader should be ashamed that he continues to undermine the foundations of a once great church. Sadly, with men like Blake at its helm allowing wolves like Forbes into the flock, it wont last much longer.
COGIC used to be guided by a protective truth established in scripture that was foundational holiness. Come from among them and be ye separate, says the Lord (2 Cor 6:17). But under Bishop Blake’s wayward leadership it has changed to “Let them in among you and be ye defiled.”
