One of the false convert/spiritual sons of Bishop TD Jakes has now repositioned/reinvented himself as an advocate of homosexual marriage. Michael Irvin made the announcement via a bizarre cover story in a homosexual magazine . Like most secular and church celebrities Jakes takes under his wing to “father”, this is just another glaring example of the true fruit of false teachers. Particularly, individuals with sex saturated pasts plus talent make them soft targets for false teachers in the church. Taking advantage of Irvin’s celebrity profile, TBN rushed to get him before Christian audiences, touting him as a Christian “who’s life was changed and as a result he can minister to others.” Jakes eagerly featured Irvin as a spokesman in his “Manpower” conferences. In 2006, the Atlanta Journal Constitution wrote that during Jakes’ “Megafest” conference “NFL greats Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith paid tribute to Jakes, both calling him “daddy.” ”
But the degenerative influence of Bishop Jakes has now crested in the person of Irvin who wants African Americans to embrace homosexual marriage as normal.
To make his big announcement, Irvin posed sexually suggestive, half nude on the cover of a gay men’s magazine. The backstory justification for this bizarre advocacy by Irvin was his cross-dressing gay brother who died in 2006. An NBC DFW story reported that Irvin credits TD Jakes with helping him to accept his brother’s sexual and gender dysfunctions.
“Michael Irvin was never shy in speaking out on the football field, whether to remind an opponent that he had just been beat, or to rally his teammates on the sidelines. Now, Irvin is lending his voice to the fight for equality, appearing on the cover of this month’s issue of Out, a gay men’s magazine.
Irvin says in the article that his relationship with his brother Vaughan, an openly gay man who died of stomach cancer back in 2006, did a great deal to mold his views on same-sex relationships. According to the magazine, Irvin became aware of his brother’s sexuality in the seventies, after discovering Vaughan wearing women’s clothing, an experience that deeply affected the Hall of Fame receiver. Irvin has since reflected on the appearance with the help of Dallas Bishop T.D. Jakes.”
Even the Dallas Observer raised an eyebrow at the weird connection between the two:
“How can Irvin be both open to embracing a gay athlete and be a faithful follower in the flock of Potter’s House bishop T.D. Jakes? It is Jakes, remember, who — even after his son, Jermaine, was arrested in a gay sex sting in Dallas — calls homosexuality “brokenness” and promises to never hire a gay person into his sprawling ministry.”
If you are “surprised” about Irvin’s embrace of homosexuality, dont be. He’s been cultivating it for a while under the Jakes’ supervision. Irvin had been openly courting the homosexual community until last year when he was hit with a rape lawsuit from an alleged encounter with a woman 2007. As a result, ESPN summarily axed his show.
His gay [radio show] partner Cyd Ziegler Jr wrote: “This is a big loss for gay equality. Michael has been an incredible champion of including a gay voice on his show, even when management scratched their heads about having a gay guy on Dallas sports radio. It’s ironic that earlier this week the Dallas Morning News ran a story about how radio was Michael’s No. 1 priority.”
Its very interesting how people who creep into apostasy always end up fornicating with the homosexual community. It seems to be a foreshadow of the bible’s depiction of Babylon. Revelation 18:1-5
After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a mighty voice he shouted:
‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.
For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”
Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
“‘Come out of her, my people,’ so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes.

If you would have told me 30 years ago that a Christian network in the future would play a part in the silencing of Godly men and women who were preaching the truth, denouncing corruption in the church and exposing liberalism and the teachers who promoted such views, I would have told you that maybe you should take a break from science fiction. But interestingly enough, that’s exactly what seems to be going on within the nation’s largest and most prominent Christian television network – the Trinity Broadcasting Network.
Sometime during the week of June 11th, long time preacher Jack Van Impe became the second casualty in recent years when he was ultimately silenced by officials at TBN for comments and opinions expressed in a taped program set to air on their network, but after viewing, was considered a violation of their network policies of offending other ministers, even though this same offending program was aired the previous Monday.
So why did TBN become unhinged about Jack’s comments in his program enough to not only reject him by not airing his program, but forbade any future programs which contained his DVD full length program, “Reclaiming and Restoring Biblical Christianity” as well as moving him to another night where the audience viewership was 25% less than his current time slot, which would ultimately give him a much lower viewing audience which ultimately means less exposure. So what could Jack Van Impe have said, or was going to say that brought down the wrath of the Crouches and ultimately silenced a significant preacher of the gospel?
The answer, it seems, was Rick Warren and Islam.
It’s no secret to many who believe in traditional conservative Biblical views that Rick Warren has ultimately forsaken the gospel for a social gospel, which is no gospel at all, but a gospel of popular ideas not founded on the word. Warren’s belief’s of the removal of the cross in most churches, his pro-Islamic stance and his purpose driven theology, all point to a complete rejection of foundational Biblical truth.
What Jack apparently did, was discuss the major points of four (4) leading emergent evangelical leaders and how they were combining their doctrines to include Islam, something that our Lord has strictly forbidden (Ephesians. 5:11) as well as expose the many false teachings that are literally running rampant within the modern church and the people who are behind these teachings. Two prominent leaders, Rick Warren and Robert Schuller, were singled out concerning their liberal teaching and why merging Christianity and Islamic teachings is not only wrong, but damaging to the body of Christ. Schuller’s pro-gay stance has increasingly become all too well known here and here.
Once Impe began to reveal exactly what was being taught by these men and why their popular and accepted views are being held by many ecumenical leaders today, and why these same views would seriously hinder the gospel, not to mention it’s devastating affects on evangelism, folks over at Trinity began to get nervous, possibly outright upset that someone like Warren, who to many within the TBN camp is idolized, would start getting their feathers ruffled at the mere notion that one of their favorite Pastors was being labeled a false teacher.
It didn’t take long before the consequences of touching TBN’s favorite Pastors would be revealed, as the official statement by Impe’s own website clearly states, “On Wednesday afternoon we received a call from Matt Crouch of TBN informing us that they would not run that program, despite having aired it Monday evening. The reason he gave was that we specifically mentioned Rick Warren and Robert Schuller and that it is TBN’s policy that broadcasters are not allowed to rebuke other ministries. This is a rather hypocritical statement in light of the fact that they have never said anything in the past when we have rebuked others such as Bishop Spong, Bishop Pike, and in the past few months Harold Camping and Rob Bell. They also stated that they would not run any future program where we offered our DVD Reclaiming & Restoring Biblical Christianity as a premium for a donation to our ministry. A DVD that exposes false teachers and the heresies that they proclaim.”
So it seems that not only is it forbidden to examine the teachings of others, it’s also forbidden to challenge any viewpoint that is currently popular and accepted by the status quo. That’s where the censoring begins.
There was another man, a prophet of God by the name of Jeremiah, who went before the people of Israel and preached righteousness, exposing the false ideas accepted by many of his day and when they heard what this prophet declared as “thus sayeth the Lord” the people reacted angrily to the point where Jeremiah was thrown into prison at times, yet his declaration remained true.
But this is not TBN’s first rodeo when it comes to applying pressure to someone who is openly critical of another faith, one has to simply look to Hal Lindsey and see the affects of tolerance pressure when it is applied. Lindsey himself got into much hot water for questioning Islam and why the Islamic religion is dangerous not only to our nation, much less the world, but to the body of Christ. And yet, when Lindsey began to speak openly on his program, it didn’t take long for the Crouches to put a stop to his rhetoric and soon, Hal Lindsey was removed completely from the network and long time friends (Lindsey and Crouch) became divided. Lindsey was eventually brought back to TBN after much public swaying, but obviously the damage was already done.
The idea that a Christian network, ANY Christian network, would pressure a minister of the gospel in what they can or cannot say, should concern all of us who value God’s word. A true preacher of the word cannot be regulated, nor is he subject to sermon approval, the reason is simple, the gospel must be preached regardless of who it offends. Once we start silencing the gospel under the guides of tolerance and political correctness, we lose and not only us, souls lose as well.
At a time when Christians are accepting homosexuality within its walls, accepting worldliness, secularism and humanism, when Pastors can write books stating there is no Hell and that the atonement for man’s sin is not in the cross but through psychology and a purpose driven ideology, God will raise up a watchman or a Prophet that will declare what God has to say and no other. When a Pastor cannot state for certainty how a homosexual can be saved and delivered, when another wants the church to subscribe to ecumenicalism by joining up with Muslims, while another Pastor produces a popular movie which depicts a nearly half naked woman sitting on the couch undoing her bra, something is sadly wrong within the body of Christ and it takes someone with grit to expose and deal with this problem we are now facing.
Trinity Broadcasting is in error, and their new direction is clearly a sign of the times we are living in, when men would rather seek the praises of men rather than to promote Godliness and righteousness. When a Christian network begins to silence preachers and prophets of the gospel who are doing nothing more than warning the body of Christ what is happening in the church, it fulfills the warning of the apostle Paul, who saw this great falling away in our future, “For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.” 2 Timothy 4:3
I contacted Paul Crouch Jr. seeking a comment for this article and was given this reply, “We choose to lift up the Lord, not chastise others. That’s not our calling. If he (jack van impe) needs to do that, he can buy time on secular TV outlets. Remember, we would not allow anyone to criticize Jack Van Impe either, even though many would love to! (The sword cuts both ways.) Again, it’s not our mission. “And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men…” end quote.
Again, it bears repeating, part of the gospel is weeding out the false and exposing those teachings which bring harm to the body of Christ, if we ignore those who are called of God to warn us of the poison many are bringing in, is that not lifting up the Lord by protecting his sheep he has entrusted us with?
All I can say is, judgment day is going to be a time of joy for many and a heartbreak for others.
If you are a gospel music idol worshipper, you won’t like this. If you are one of those deceived false converts who believe homosexuals have place in God’s house, you won’t like this either. And finally if youre fearful of standing for holiness, you definitely won’t like this. Perhaps at this point, you should just exit this story. Despite all the feel good goobley-gook that is called preaching in the contemporary church, GCM Watch apologetically holds up God’s standard. Let God be true and every man a liar.
The homosexual churchfest is back in the spotlight. Each year, you can count on some misguided gospel industry worker to show up to collect a check “minister”. In case you missed previous installments, you can review at your convenience.

In short, the storyline goes like this: the gay church people wave money but obfuscate their real agenda. Gospel music industry booking agents, hungry to keep their client in the spotlight and get paid, grab the gay church money. No mention of gay church appearances is made on client’s website. When GCM Watch shines attention on the dirty deeds, managers claim ignorance, gospel music industry workers claim ignorance or feign “ministry”. Gay church stands by and snicker like alley cats. And around and around we go with all the gay church-gospel music drama.
So, here we are again.
We can now add LeAndria Johnson to the list of the fallen ones. Johnson is the “Season 3″ winner of BET’s top money making gospel blackface show Sunday’s Best. Johnson is the second winner of the show to matriculate into the gay churchworld. But is that any surprise that SB is cranking out gay church performers?
Attempts to reach Leandria Johnson (and family) for comment have gone unanswered. A booking agent listed on her facebook site at first affirmed his association with Johnson, then on a follow up confirmation called denied association.
Johnson is listed as singing at the June 22nd consecration of a homosexual bishop at the Vision Church in Atlanta. Johnson should be ashamed and blacklisted from every church door that believes the Word of the Lord. Appearing at a homosexual church event, picking up those foul spirits and then spreading them to unsuspecting people in black churches should be an urgent concern to pastors everywhere.
Can a backslider minister?
If a Christian is in an admittedly backslidden state, why would anyone want to PAY them to “minister”? Minister what? Minister to whom? But at a Brooklyn church in January, Johnson broke down and admitted to the church that she was in no state to be ministering to anyone.
Johnson seemed very regretful that she had even gotten involved in the gospel music industry. Undoubtedly, she’d had a glimpse of the wickedness that goes on behind the scenes…and was influenced by it.
“Pray that my mind stays focused on Jesus … Even after ‘Sunday Best’ I found myself going back to where I had came from … I didn’t think I’d minister again,” she confessed.
“I’ve been holding this in for a long time and I didn’t know how to express myself,” Johnson continued with tears streaming down her face, “I’m tired of turning my back on God … that’s why I ask for your prayers. Please keep me in prayer.”
After that admission, as several women encircle Johnson and pray an unidentified woman takes the microphone and said, “The enemy is after our musicians … and the enemy knows how to send people that just wanna get in to the fame and into the limelight and they’ll let you do what and say what you want. But thank God for some leaders that don’t mind telling you the truth and when it’s all said and done, we’re going to pray until something happens.”
While we hope that she has recovered and is living holy, its 10 steps backwards to legitimize people who are working against the Word of God. If Johnson were serious about living right and ministering to truth to people, she would cancel her appearance at the homosexual churchfest AND call on them to repent.
Does God send his ministers to minister to people who are living in rebellion against him? Of course he does. The question which determines whether God has sent someone or whether someone is just doing a gospel music gig depends the message delivered. God sent Jonah to Nineveh with one message: “repent”! When the occupants of that great city repented with great humility from the least to the greatest, God turned away his judgment. But the gay churchfest is a celebration of sin, not a turning away from sin.
The bible says: let everyone that names the name of Christ depart from iniquity (2 Tim 2:9). Its simple if you call yourself a Christian, you should separate yourself from iniquity, not set an elaborate religious ceremony celebrating it. You can see from the gaggle of false prophets, heretics and court jesters attending the ceremony, there’s only one god who will receive any praise from it.
While many people bemoan the presence of homosexuality in black churches, in their music “ministry” and in the pulpit. the ugly truth can be seen in the nearest mirror. When a person supports a perverted, celebrity cult worshipping show like Sunday’s Best, they are directly contributing to the worst blight of sin on the church in recent history.
Indeed, when seducing spirits gain a stronghold in the church, it is because they have been invited in and allowed to operate.
Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. Rev 2:20
Leandria Johnson performed at TD Jakes so-called leadership conference in March. She also performed at Dorinda Clark Cole’s music conference. If we really want to know why homosexuality and the spirit of perversion is so strong in the church, the blame is squarely at the feet of so called leaders who have opened the doors of God’s house of prayer and made it into a den of sexual perversion.
And when you buy their music and attend their concerts, you by proxy, endorse their sins. Pornography is more than looking at naked images. Too many so called saints are spiritual porn addicts, getting their fix on vicariously through these workers of iniquity.
Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.
On Wednesday, an unusual gaggle of “leaders across the ideological spectrum” released an open letter type statement rebuking anyone who questions the so-called “faith” of the Saviour of the United States (SOTUS). The Democratic party aligned media agency hired by the “70 prominent religious leaders” contends that anyone who questions whether Barack Obama is a real Christian is misrepresenting his faith. The letter wanted to make the point that [the president's] faith isn’t a political matter. I beg to differ.
What’s even more outrageous is the demand to prohibit the free speech rights of any American who may question Obama’s religious teleprompter faith.
“…we urge public officials, faith leaders, and the media to offer no further support or airtime to those who misrepresent and call into question the President’s Christian faith.”
As Christian leaders— whose primary responsibility is sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with our congregations, our communities, and our world— we are deeply troubled by the recent questioning of President Obama’s faith. We understand that these are contentious times, but the personal faith of our leaders should not be up for public debate.
President Obama has been unwavering in confessing Christ as Lord and has spoken often about the importance of his Christian faith. Many of the signees on this letter have prayed and worshipped with this President. We believe that questioning, and especially misrepresenting, the faith of a confessing believer goes too far.
This is not a political issue. The signers of this letter come from different political and ideological backgrounds, but we are unified in our belief in Jesus Christ. As Christian pastors and leaders, we believe that fellow Christians need to be an encouragement to those who call Christ their savior, not question the veracity of their faith.
Therefore, we urge public officials, faith leaders, and the media to offer no further support or airtime to those who misrepresent and call into question the President’s Christian faith. And we join with the President in praying that God will continue to bless the United States of America.
Let’s talk about misrepresentation
When Obama misrepresented the Arizona immigration law by saying if he and his daughter went out for ice cream he could be arrested, these pansy yes men released no statement.
When Obama misrepresented the Bible by saying that Romans 1 was an obscure passage, these hypocrites released no letter correcting him.
When Obama misrepresented God’s intent for marriage by promoting homosexual marriage as “just as real and admirable as relationships between a man and a woman”, none of these whitewashed leaders released any letters condemning SOTUS gross statement.
When Obama said he had written off the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuality as “worn arguments and old attitudes”, we heard not one single objection from the religious leaders.
When Obama misrepresented the facts about the excessively high number of death by abortion in the black community, these false prophets released no letter.
When Obama misrepresented fatherhood by saying two homosexual men are legitimate fathers, not a peep out of the so called religious leaders.
Obama has even misrepresented himself (aka lying)!
But as soon as someone says something about the fake saviors’ fake faith, the false prophets rush to his defense. So let’s sum this up. Obama can wantonly misrepresent whatever he wants (including God and the Bible), but these false prophets say no one can misrepresent him because his faith is “off limits”? We all know what this is. Its another practice drill for the arrival of the antichrist.
The Eleison Group, a media propaganda agency used by the religious leaders, claims it mission is to “create dialogue, relationships, and common ground in an effort to make our nation and world a better place.” One look at their clients and projects and its clear that their mission is to push political religion which the bible calls a form of godliness that denies the power thereof.
People have a legitimate right to question any president’s public declarations of the religious nature. Why is Obama exempt? Over and over he’s preached to the nation, lectured us on what the bible says ( from his progay-black liberation theology point of view), and couched his unpopular policies behind cherry picked scriptures. He has, without question, done much more for the religion of death and violence (Islam) while sabotaging and deriding his own so called faith. And so, we are not supposed to question whether its right or wrong? We’re just supposed to shuffle our feet, give a big watermelon grin and pray for his continued success?
Via EX Times, we learn that Bishop George Bloomer aka “the general of warfare” is the latest church leader to play footloose with the homosexual in heaven question. The North Carolina based Bloomer was interviewed in the May 3rd edition of JET Magazine and was asked if homosexuals were going to heaven.
He did not give a clear cut answer instead he beat around the bush. Here are a few points of what Bishop George Bloomer had to say:
“I lost a brother to AIDS. I have family members in the gay lifestyle and it broke my heart when they left the church because they thought the church was too judgmental. I had been judgmental too, preaching that gays would all burn in hell.”
If we believe anything about what the Good Book says about heaven, it’s a holy and happy place that NONE of us really deserves. No matter how you classify yourself, you had better depend on God’s mercy instead of your inherent goodness.”
At the end he says: “I’m not going to tell you gays will go to heaven-I’ll leave that assessment to you.
Bloomer also told JET that “sexual orientation” has nothing to do with missing heaven. Which I agree with.
“If we believe anything about what the good book says about heaven, it’s a happy place that NONE of us really deserves. No matter how you classify yourself, you had better depend on God’s mercy instead of your inherent goodness.” Is homosexuality an unforgivable sin? No. The only unforgivable transgression is to smugly refuse to bow down before your Creator. That arrogance certainly isn’t limited to any particular sexual orientation, nor to any particular kind of sin.”
If you remember, Bloomer was one of the featured preachers assembled by the Lexi show to refute Carlton Pearson’s inclusion heresy. But what’s really happening with these so-called leaders? Are they afraid of the gay churchers and supporters behind the scenes of these TV preachers?
Bloomer seems to indicate that since he was judgmental in saying that “all gays will burn in hell”, his solution is to be ambiguous about whether or not all gays will go to heaven. But instead, his theological pendulum has swung to the opposite end. Neither position represents the biblical stand.
If you remember, Bishop TD Jakes gave almost the exact same response four years ago in a NPR interview where he declined to say if homosexuals (the practicing, nonrepentant type) were going to heaven. In October 2007, Rev. Creflo Dollar, another high profile mega preacher side stepped the issue when asked about it on Canadian television.
Is it really that hard of a question to accurately answer? If Bloomer and Jakes are so unsure, then are they really reading —or agreeing— with scripture which is sure?
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Cor 6:9-11 NIV
For a self proclaimed “general of warfare”, Bishop Bloomer left the troops high and dry on this one.
TOLEDO, OH – This will not be easy on the eyes. But then again, dealing with false teachers is never pleasant.
Bishop Michael Pitts is putting on yet another one of those grand, stratospheric type church conferences which boasts big, money making drawing cards like TD Jakes, Eddie Long and Paula White. (h/t Pulpit Pimps) Pitts is bishop or apostle of the Cornerstone Global Network.
But despite all the religious grandstanding, court records and media reports show Pitts can’t seem to keep his private parts in his pants while he is in public places.
Add to that Pitts’ drunk driving conviction and you wonder what is it that attracts these paper mache religious leaders to something like his latest conference called “Decree: Heaven on Earth” (make sure to look at the url closely). On the surface, we know that its the promise of mega money which lures in vultures like Jakes, Long and White. If there weren’t significant mammon being waved in their face, they simply wouldn’t show.
Scandal and sin mark the head conference speakers: Jakes charges 50k for speaking engagements and has been in and out of the homosexual controversies for years now. False prophetess Paula White is working hard to resurrect the church her selfish divorce helped tear down. Eddie Long is trending gay affirming and fancies himself a religious Donald Trump. That’s why they will go to Pitts’ pleasure palace and parade around for the sheeple to snap pictures of them and utter nonsensical religious platitudes.
Its apparent because these people cannot govern their own lives, they turn a blind eye and enable Pitts to continue his charade and deception. We can no longer afford silence while souls are being sifted like wheat with the help of false teachers.
Joshua Benton a former staff writer and columnist for The Dallas Morning News wrote about Pitts’ heretofore slick abilities to avoid the legal noose for his perverted crimes. Benton who lived and worked in Toledo for some time said he was dismayed that there was little information on Pitts’ sexual malfunctions on the internet. Of course, Pitts was able to continue putting on his grand conferences because no one really knew that he was showing his private parts to little boys on a golf course.
In 1995, he was stopped by police after allegedly being spotted masturbating in front of two young boys hitting golf balls at a local baseball diamond. Officials did not press charges after Pastor Pitts agreed to seek counseling with a psychologist who sees sex offenders, they said. (The Pitts camp claims the officials are lying.)
In 1997, he faced eight counts of public indecency and seven counts of criminal trespass, linked to a series of incidents in which a man matching Pastor Pitts’ description was reported exposing himself to people in places like a local park and a Wal-Mart parking lot. His car was spotted near where several of the incidents occurred.
Pastor Pitts hired some very fine attorneys and, in the end, all charges except for two criminal trespass misdemeanors were suddenly dropped. His final punishment: 14 days of house arrest with an ankle bracelet and a $500 fine. As part of the unusual plea agreement, both prosecution and defense agreed that neither side would be allowed to discuss the reasons for the sudden deal.
Pastor Pitts claimed complete vindication. Others were less sure.”
Today, far too many called Christian clergy are spiraling headlong into perdition. And if they are out of control spiritually and naturally, where does that leave those following them? How to they do it? Its simple so many of the main money makers are so riddled with sin, they form a club and perform at each other’s conferences. Haven’t you seen the pattern? Google any of these vipers and you will see who they slither around with. And the people who attend these events perhaps are unaware that the “stars” are priming them for blood. It reminds me of a movie I saw once about a traveling vampire circus. None of the townspeople knew they were part of a scheme to rob them of their lives. They lived bored lives and were hungry for entertainment. So the vampires gave it to them.
In court, when another defendant recognized Pastor Pitts and asked why he was there he said, “You know, you don’t get through life without taking a few little bumps.”
With all of these public sins, why hasn’t there been some public contrition from Pitts? You guessed it. Any attention on his perversion would jeopardize the flow on money which allow him to continue his upper echelon lifestyle. Last year, when Pitts appeared for a command performance at Paula White’s church, she declared it was by “divine appointment”.
Though there has been some debate surrounding Pitts’ ability to get charges against him dismissed on legal technicalities, the Bible has no such leniency for those who claim to be bishops in the Lord’s church. The qualifications are clear. A bishop must be blameless, with a good report both within (from the church) and without (the community). Pitts’ recurring issues with liquor, sex and false teaching do not meet the standards. Unfortunately, there is no one to rebuke him sharply, openly and to his face until he repents. But you don’t have to be bamboozled.
If you are an currently an enabler of Michael Pitts, I urge you to immediately discontinue sowing seeds (aka giving him money), attending his conferences or warming the benches at his local theater church. Stay away from this false prophet and his cohorts until they repent. There’s really no other option unless you want to be partakers of their sins.
