Remember discredited gay Bishop Jim Swilley, the once upon a time pastor of so labeled Atlanta area Church in the now? Swilley caused major upheaval, division and the breakup of his congregation by claiming that he was forced to announce his homosexuality to save so called young gay kids from the brink of suicide. Swilley immediately became a poster boy du jour for the liberal media who loved that he was a self proclaimed pentecostal.
Swilley’s announcement sent shock waves of fear through other area false teachers who had cavorted with him. His fellow in the closet comrade Bishop David Huskins tried to distance himself from the sinking ship by saying that Swilley was unfit for leadership. Apparently, Swilley must have reminded Huskins of his own secret unfittedness causing Huskins to deny he had called Swilley unfit.
So what is he up to now? Has Swilley (who refers to himself as Jim in the now) saved hundreds of gay kids like he claimed for his mission? Hardly. The only thing Jim Swilley has done is emerge as another run of the mill gay themed religionista tipping around Atlanta’s social scene with his sex partner. Take a look right here. That’s really what he always wanted was to satisfy the cravings of his flesh.
Unfortunately for Swilley and his profane wife, homosexuals didn’t reward him with cash for his betrayal of the people he manipulated into thinking he was a real pastor. Thus, Church in the Now no longer exists (a victim of foreclosure). That freed up Swilley to be “no longer afraid” whatever that means. You can read GCM Watch coverage of Swilley’s insanity here and here.
So much for saving gay kids from suicide.
ATLANTA – False prophet and recent self proclaimed homosexual bishop Jim Swilley may need to rename his expensive religious meeting place “Church on the Rocks”. According to the Rockdale Times, foreclosure is staring the dwindling former mega church in the face.
Church In The Now, the large, non-denominational church in Conyers, is back into the foreclosure process for the second time this year after its mortgage holder placed a foreclosure notice in last week’s Rockdale Citizen.
Evangelical Christian Credit Union placed the legal notice in the March 10 edition of the Rockdale Citizen to announce foreclosure proceedings on Church In The Now, located on Iris Drive, west of the Salem Road exit on Interstate 20.
The notice stated plans to sell the church following default on $18.5 million in principal from a security deed on the property filed June 2007.
The foreclosure concerns the property and buildings located at 1873, 1875 and 1877 Iris Drive. The total value of 1873 Iris Drive was listed as $11.4 million for this year, according to the Rockdale County Board of Assessors office.
If the foreclosure proceeds, the sale is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, April 5, on the steps of the Rockdale County Courthouse on Bank Street. [source]
Its not clear whether Swilley made his guess-what-Im-gay announcement hoping to draw in the gay crowds in an attempt save his building or whether his guess-what-Im-gay announcement hastened the church’s demise due to fleeing sheeple.
Yvette Flunder’s Fellowship of pentecostal homosexuals is touting its upcoming churchfest.
But there’s an interesting arrangement of guest speaker pictures.
There’s no debating that Carlton Pearson has changed over the years. The question however remains: By his hand in glove advocacy of homosexuality is Pearson preparing the way for others or for himself?
Slated to appear at the Fellowship’s annual religious production, is Pearson’s picture placement telling a story?
1. From a COGIC evangelist, Flunder devolved into a lesbian bishop.
2. Wyatt Greenlee paid his fees and followed her as a gay bishop’s assistant.
4. Jim Swilley saw the devastation caused by other sexually perverted ministers in his family but still devastated many of his church’s members with his gay liefest.
5. After trying out traditional pentecostalism, gay church circuit parties, then weird new thought religion, is Carlton Pearson next in line?
We’ve seen it before with so-called inclusion clerics claiming they were only trying to seek justice and equality for gay church and/or family members. But later we found out that they were just testing the waters to see how much public support they could elicit for their own private abominations. See this man, this man and this man [b].
Well the year is coming to a close and what a year it has been. Gay Christian Movement Watch is thankful for every single person who has supported us in word, thought and deed. Going forward, we promise to stay on the wall: sober, vigilant and ready to keep you informed of the enemy’s devices.

ATLANTA – Bishop Jim Swilley, nephew of deceased sexual predator Earl Paulk is on a media fasttrack with the gay christian lie. The gay and liberal media —hungry for a false teacher like Swilley to refute biblical teachings about homosexuality— are beside themselves with glee. Consequently, they are rewarding Swilley (and strangely enough his un-exwife) with lots of feel good air and press time.
Swilley, his profane-mouthed un-exwife Debye and their son all joined forces with the local homosexual news outlet to gush over his newfound gay celebrity status and bash Christians who are calling him out for his 39 years of deception and lies.
Its hard to believe that Swilley has been preaching the true gospel for 39 years. His un-exwife confirms that by saying that he had been pushing the false theory of inclusion i.e. “God loves you just as you are”, nothing else required.
But notice in media interviews there’s no mention of an affirmation from God or the bible of his sin. Instead, he cites people who agreed with his lie as his confirmation that he was right.
In one week, I gained over 1,000 Facebook friends. I’ve heard from Hong Kong, Japan, London, South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria… one story after another from people who say, “Oh my God. I feel like you totally told my story.” I’ve heard from other pastors who’ve come out or pastors who are still in the closet, afraid to come out. I’ve heard from teenagers. For every negative one that I get, there’ll be a hundred that are loving and affirming. I hear it over and over: “You saved my life.”
But listen at what the scriptures say.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, 2 Tim 4:3
Paul was right and the time has come. Religious homosexuals like Swilley only serve as signs that the scripture is true. It has already prophesied their ascension, the nature of their deception and ultimately their fall into hell. Swilley’s words are doctrines of devils. Their most used tactic: reposition their deceptive language as love.
Not a savior, but a murderer from the beginning
Thankfully, we are beginning to hear some prominent voices speak out against Swilley’s full blown liefest.
On October 31st, Creflo Dollar mentioned it to his church. Dollar didnt call out Swilley by name but told his congregation, “The Bible says that even the very elect will be deceived. Unfortunately ladies and gentlemen, it seems like we’re almost there. Especially when you have preachers getting up in their pulpit saying, ‘I’m gay, and there’s nothing wrong with it.’
Pastor Dollar said Swilley isn’t helping anybody.
“There is nothing liberating about submitting to or accepting an identification that God does not want a Christian, especially a preacher, to accept. You’re not gonna save anybody’s life, you’re gonna make it worse. You’re not gonna stop people from killing themselves. They’re gonna do it even more. Just because you have a weird feeling that doesn’t line up with the word of God, don’t submit to the feeling,”
That’s true, false teachers care about nothing except satisfying their own vile desires. Those who engage in homosexuality will not inherit the kingdom of God (1 Cor 6). Anyone who tells them otherwise might as well take a gun and shoot them in the head. Death and sin go hand in hand (Romans 6:23). As shofarsound wrote, false teachers are murderers like their father the devil.
And if you think that Swilley’s mind is polluted, his son and un-exwife’s is just as polluted. Asked about people’s reactions to his father’s coming out church party Judah Swilley said:
Christ said there are two laws to be Christ-like: to love God and to love people. It’s very simple. If you’re not loving, you’re not Christ-like. People try to say, “I’ll accept them [homosexuals] but I won’t affirm them.” That’s ridiculous! You have to love them.
You know, Leviticus says all kinds of crazy things. I mean that with all due respect but it says things like not to let cattle graze with other cattle, don’t have a variety of crops in the same field, don’t blend the fabrics of your clothing. If you are disrespectful to your parents, you must be killed. … There are all kinds of things in there.
Thank God that most of it has been supportive. Unfortunately, we’ve heard from closed-minded religious people that see things a different way. The crazy thing is that the people who have extreme religious beliefs and they bring out different scriptures and try to pick and choose them to make their point. You can’t just pick one thing and take it out of context.
We’ve answered rubber stamped gay christian lies before here and here. Its interesting that while they accuse people of “picking scriptures out of context”, that’s exactly what they do with the commandment to love. Judah has probably never read Jesus’ words where he says “if you love me you will keep my commandments”.
But I must admit, in all my years of dealing with the insidious gay christian movement, I’ve never seen anyone vomit out so many lies per sitting. At a rapid pace, Swilley literally lies, distorts, regurgitates and then quickly starts the process over without batting an eye. His father, the devil has been preparing him for 39 years to deceive millions and he is rushing with wild abandon to do just that.
So Bishop Swilley, lie on. Enjoy your temporary tenure in the world’s spotlight. Exult in their praise and adulation of your fake religion and self manufactured sexual identity. Heap to yourself followers who hate God and his word. But the time is approaching where your soul will be required and the blood of those who have followed you into perdition. A lie has a short life in the fast lane, but in the end only God’s truth will prevail. And the consequence for you will be great, devastating and eternal.
There’s no need to prophesy your end. Like other false prophets before you, God has already planned it.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Rev 21:8
Additional reading on Swilley from Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. Love the line “Vicky Gene Robinson, move over. There’s a new spiritual fraud in the pulpit.” How very true.
The Jim Swilley gay-is-okay-cause-I-said-so saga sadly continues. I generally don’t release full emails but in this case its necessary.
Apparently there is a lot of politicking going on behind the scenes. We’re don’t know if its to keep other closet doors from being unlocked or to prevent already unlocked ones from revealing more information about who’s been in the dark. But according to newly minted homosexual bishop Jim Earl Swilley, his former leader bishop David Huskins, has denied telling GCM Watch that Swilley is unfit and unqualified to lead other Christians (see October 28th post.
“I have, indeed, willingly stepped down from the College of Bishops of the International Communion of Charismatic Churches, and am no longer affiliated with that organization. I am currently in dialogue with another international network/fellowship concerning possible ordination/affiliation, but I’ll wait to say more about that later as relationship with them develops.
I do want to say, however, that I have no issue or negative feelings whatsoever toward the ICCC, or its presiding Bishop, David Huskins. The ICCC does great work all around the world, and has and always will have my full respect. I also want to say that, contrary to what has been reported online, Bishop Huskins has personally assured me that he has never done an interview about me with any Christian watchdog group, and has never said, publicly or privately, that I am “unfit to lead“. (underline and bold his)
Swilley’s book length blog on his current state of existence appears to be just another convoluted attempt to justify his sin. If you’d like to read “gay is okay”, part II go here.
In order to correct the the continued lies, distortions and manipulative language coming from Bishop Jim Swilley (and Huskins), here is the entire email exchange between GCM Watch and David Huskins. Click the image to see the larger version.
Its difficult to get false teachers to tell the truth so this is to be expected. Both Swilley and Huskins apparently share some secrets they are negotiating with each other about who can and cannot say what and when. After we published the first interview, Huskins immediately took down the letter where he condemned Swilley. Swilley for his part has continued seeking the approval of Huskins, even after he and his uncle/cousin Donnie Earl Paulk disparaged the ICCC in their coming out video.
Sin is messy and so are the people who indulge themselves in it.
And for the record, Swilley is unfit for leadership. As a false teacher and disqualified bishop (see qualifications in 1 Timothy 3)
