The false prophets supporting homosexual marriage just keep getting more bizarre as the days go by. Their arguments are rarely, if ever, biblically coherent. But like hordes of flesh eating zombies they keep popping up.
In order to justify homosexuality, marriage perversion and the entire spectrum of gay related issues they have to throw Jesus, the bible and 2,000 years of church doctrine under the bus. And then back over them.
On a recent tv debate on Fox News Sean Hannity show that’s exactly what the false teacher Oliver White, a cleric with the United Churches of Christ, did. If the name sounds familiar, its because White made news in 2012 when 72% of his predominately African American congregation in St Paul, MN walked out on him for attempting to force his false religious beliefs on them. Despite homosexuals trying to prop up his dead works, he lost the church. Read here
But he’s back and as nasty and as ignorant as ever, even degrading and blaspheming the Lord Jesus himself.
For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord. Jude verse 4
Said White: “If Jesus were alive today, he would be more inclined to say, ‘you know, I didn’t know it all…”
Does Jesus know all things? Of course. He is God. He openly proclaimed himself to be God (that’s why the Jews attempted to stone him twice before the crucifixion).
John 1:1 says that “the Word was God.” John 1:14 says that “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us” This clearly indicates that Jesus is God in the flesh. Acts 20:28 tells us, “…Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood.” Who bought the church with His own blood? Jesus Christ. Acts 20:28 declares that God purchased the church with His own blood.
As God come in the flesh, Jesus is omniscient.
Not far behind is the plastic voiced false teacher Carlton Pearson who fetched up a gaggle of clerics in Chicago to do the same.
In July, GCM Watch reported that the Cleveland based Joint College of African American Pentecostal Bishops had released a strongly worded rejection of homosexual clergy. But now, new information reveals that Official Statement was simply an attempt to cover up the school’s knowing admission of an openly homosexual bishop.
O.C. Allen, founder of an Atlanta homosexual church attended and was certified by the school and is now wearing the school’s insignia.
Bishop J. Delano Ellis, his staff and roster of high powered, high profile bishops had been extremely silent and guarded as questions began to surface. Allen and his cadre of gay clerics sported the insignia of the JCAAPB during their 2012 meeting in Atlanta. Several ministers connected to the school said that Ellis was afraid of the controversy that might erupt if he publicly confronted Allen so he has remained silent, hoping it would not be noticed. But GCMW found out that Allen threatened to sue the school if it did not admit him.
The fiery voiced Ellis who started the college in 1993 along with Bishop Paul Morton, Bishop Wilbert McKinley, Bishop Roy Brown tout the organization as a place of rigorous training for those who operate in episcopal offices.
And according to its website the JCAAPB has ” grown into the premiere development center for the Episcopacy in the African American culture.”
The website says “The reputation of Archbishop J. Delano Ellis is well established as being a blend of compassion for leadership and a bulwark for legitimate and principled order for all episcopal issues.”
Central to the issue at hand, the “Official Statement on Homosexuality insisted that “The ordination of a practicing homosexual to any church office contradicts the clear mandate of God. Therefore, the Joint College will NEVER accept or bless same-sex unions of any kind or grant those living such a lifestyle Apostolic Succession into Holy Office.” (their italics)
But the official statement doesn’t address the problem which prompted it. In fact, the letter is a artful lie. The Joint College didn’t ordain Allen nor did they give him “apostolic succession”. That was never the real problem. But Ellis did deliver to Allen what he wanted: legitimacy. Fearful of a threat to sue, Ellis caved in and gave him what he wanted.
Orlando Short, Jr., an adjutant with Joint College told GCM Watch, ” The College was not legally ready for an openly gay bishop to come to the college. He was stopped at the door, but because of charter verbage, [sic] he would have been able to sue if we denied him. He was quiet the whole time there. While there, he bought patches and gave them to his bishops. Because of this the letter was drafted to let people know what we believe.”
GCMW contacted Ellis’ office for a statement, but none was forthcoming. Instead of Ellis being truthful publicly about the situation and in the process warning other leaders, he played along with the deception for the sake of image. Despite all of his fiery condemnation of homosexuality and homosexual clerics, Ellis and his school has lost its credibility as any legitimate guardian of the Pentecostal heritage.
Some see the situation as both an attack and a colossal failure on the organization’s part.
“Its a shame for the Joint College to issue such a powerful statement on the issue of homosexuality and then, even consider a practicing sexually immoral person to darken the doorsteps of an institution such as the Joint College of Bishops,” said Pastor Fred Rochester of Brooklyn, New York.
“The capitulation of the Joint College is another example of the LGBT (gay) agenda to get the true church of God to surrender by perverted infiltration, its absolute Biblical position and right to prevent those that practice sexual immorality a place at the table of truth. It is another attempt by homosexuals to further erode the pillar and ground of the truth into a pile of worthless rubble.”
Allen is a cohort of former pentecostal bishop Carlton Pearson who was rejected and branded a heretic by Ellis and the Joint College in 2004 for his doctrine of inclusion teaching. Allen and his homosexual religious organization are seeking legitimacy by association and the Joint College provided the perfect setting for both proxy revenge and the semblance of legitimacy he desired.
A former member of the Joint College, who asked not to be named summed up his disgust with Ellis’ gay bishop debacle. “This is a disgrace,” he said.
CLEVELAND – The nation’s foremost organization of African American pentecostal episcopates has released a statement rejecting the ordination, approval and acceptance of unrepentant homosexuals into Christian ministry. Despite increasing numbers of predominately white formerly mainline denominations capitulating to ordaining and consecrating open homosexuals, others are drawing a spiritual and policy-based line in the sand.
The Joint College of African American Pentecostal Bishops (JCAAPB) released a strongly worded statement via its website decrying “prejudice, bigotry and violence” against homosexuals, but maintaining a unwavering biblical position in the process.
The act of homosexuality is a sin according to God’s Word. God’s intent in creation was that male and female would be complimentary, that the privilege of sexual expression would be between male and female only, and this expression would be only in the context of marriage. Both heterosexual and homosexual sexual behavior outside of marriage violates the human spirit and distorts God’s intent for our lives. The Holy Scriptures condemn homosexual practices (Genesis 19:4-10; Leviticus 18:22; 30:13; Romans 1: 26-28; and First Timothy 1:8-10), and we follow this instruction and example of Jesus.
While the world systems are being continually affected by cultural and sociological changes, we will not compromise or deviate from the standards set by God. We do not endorse or consecrate homosexuals to the Holy Office of Bishop, or condone their ordination into Holy Office as Deacons or Elders (Priests), for to do so is both dishonoring to God and a betrayal of our Faith. The ordination of a practicing homosexual to any church office contradicts the clear mandate of God. Therefore, the Joint College will NEVER accept or bless same-sex unions of any kind or grant those living such a lifestyle Apostolic Succession into Holy Office.”
Headed by former COGIC official J. Delano Ellis, the Joint College first made news in April 2004 when it convened a special session on the so-called “gospel of inclusion” and declared it heresy and its chief advocate Carlton Pearson, a heretic [source].
The organization counts among its executive board COGIC Presiding Bishop Charles Blake, Sr, Bishop Alfred Owens, head of the Mt Calvary Holy Churches of America, Bishop Walter Thomas and Bishop Claude Alexander of Kingdom Association of Covenant Pastors.
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].
CHICAGO – In breaking news WGN Chicago has reported some members of the Christ Universal Temple are cheering the resignation of former pentecostal bishop turned gay affirming apostate Carlton Pearson. [source]
After less than two years in the pulpit, the embattled interim leader of Christ Universal Temple has stepped down to make room for someone new to lead one of the city’s largest congregations.
The Rev. Carlton Pearson, once one of the nation’s pre-eminent Pentecostal preachers, stirred controversy from the moment he assumed leadership of the South Side mega-church in 2009.
Ousted from his mega-church in Tulsa, Okla. for teaching that Muslims, Buddhists, and homosexuals go to heaven, he joined the New Thought movement when selected to lead Christ Universal Temple.
But some members of the congregation objected to Pearson’s appointment, saying he lacked the theological training to lead a New Thought church. The movement uses a metaphysical interpretation of the Bible and focuses on healing, meditation and thinking positive thoughts to improve one’s life.
New Thought pioneer, the Rev. Johnnie Colemon, founded Christ Universal Temple in 1956. In 1974 she formed her own denomination, the Universal Foundation for Better Living (UFBL). Then in 2006, after building a $10 million religious empire, Colemon retired with no succession plan in place.
Pearson said he has expanded that empire by launching a $3.2 million capital expenditure campaign, a prime time television broadcast and a live stream of services on the Web.
“All the things that any normal church would want to happen did,” Pearson said. “I was trying to extend the church message beyond the church walls to a inclusive audience … They want to take the church in a different direction, back to where they were before I got there.”
The Rev. Roderick Norton, a church minister, said Christ Universal is now searching for a new leader within the New Thought movement.
“I think it’s the best thing that happened,” he said. But member Hermene Hartman disagrees.
“I think it’s our loss very honestly,” Hartman said. “I don’t think he has been fully appreciated or given the opportunity for expression of ministry. It’s too bad that Christ Universal Temple wasn’t interested in a new broad church.”
Pearson has been in flux every since he debuted his specious “gospel of inclusion” and was pronounced a heretic by the Joint College of African American Bishops. Afterwards he began shilling for the homosexual christian movement. Recently he appeared on CNN and announced that he knew many gay ministers and music ministers who wanted to come out of the closet, but couldn’t because of potential money and position losses.
Christ Universal Temple is a hybrid religious organization that believes in metaphysical newthought doctrines and a large faction of members had fought Pearson’s appointment since the very beginning.
Whether this is good or not remains to be seen, but it is a rather strange occurrence. A false church forcing a false prophet to resign because he’s not false enough.
When it comes to those who distort the truth, a certain standard or format must be used to counter them. Christ warned us several times to be aware of false prophets, even revealing their true nature as “ravenous wolves” (Mt 7:15). The Apostle Peter, using equally sobering words, warned us of the massive damage they are capable of (2 Peter 2:1). The increase of false teachers, preachers, and doctrines require every believer to uphold the Word of God in an effective, balanced way.
You may have noticed that when some Christian leaders “debate” obvious reprobate minds of false teachers, two extremes emerge. One, they appear friendly—even conciliatory—yet weak. The second is they are appear overly angry and unloving. But what does the Word of God tell us about refuting?
“Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching. 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. They will reject the truth and chase after myths. But you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work at telling others the Good News, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you.” 2 Timothy 4:2-5 (New Living Translation)
The Word of God tells us to be prepared and preach the word of God whether people like it or not. The word also tells us not be afraid to suffer for the Lord. The truth is an offense to this world. Pilate asked our Lord Jesus as His life hung in the balance, “What is truth?” But it seems this world still has not found it. Maybe some of our “preachers” haven’t found it either.
Not ready for primetime?
In November 2009, Pastor Jamal Bryant and Bishop George Bloomer proved they were not ready for prime time with one time COGIC member and infamous heretic Carlton Pearson. And maybe they needed a little polishing up in the word, because they clearly were not ready to engage Pearson. Both ended up looking rather foolish. You can see that interview here.
In a previous article, GCM Watch reported how the two allowed Pearson to make a full argument on his false doctrine of “Inclusion“, and also let him give “heart touching” back ground stories of how “church folk” dropped him. Bryant and Bloomer appeared unsure on how to rebuke him. But where was all the charisma and glibness of tongue these “men of God” often show when it’s time to raise money?
Bryant is often encouraged to “Preach Black Man!!”. But instead of preaching the Gospel in the face of a clear challenge, he opted to have the audience pray for Pearson. While there’s nothing wrong with prayer, (and Pearson needs as many prayers as we can send up) there is something wrong when Pearson is allowed to spew un-biblical vomit to millions of viewers at home and not be rebuked.
Bryant instead used theological metaphors that got the crowd real hype (if they could even understand what he was talking about) to diagnose Pearson as being filled with demons. But never called him what He really is, a false prophet! While the Christian panel sat there cool, calm, and collected and joking with Pearson on the side as if they didn’t have a care in their fantasy world. The real world was lied to, as Pearson relentlessly gave the viewers tons of erroneous scripture usage and I think-isms.
Bishop Bloomer (known for his alleged expertise in casting out demons) admitted that he only came on the show to meet Pearson and to tell him how much he loved him. Did he miss the fact that Pearson’s doctrine is not only false, but it leads people to spiritual death? To me, this was as serious as the 9/11 planes hitting the twin towers. Whoever believed Pearson’s mess(age) is at risk.
None of the panelists demonstrated an ability (or willingness) to shut Pearson up and declare that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (John 3:16) and He said:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6 (King James Version)
Just by watching the show on you tube I was outraged and starting preaching the word of God right to my laptop. But to no avail I couldn’t change anything. This brings up a good question. What are we to do if we ever find ourselves onstage with Carlton Pearson, Yvette Flunder and others who teach false doctrines?
This site has already provided wonderful articles about this subject and you can see those here, here and here. I wish only to point out that even with this information the church seems to still be confused on how to handle false prophets and teachers in the church.
The word of God gives us a biblical way to handle these heretics in Titus:
“But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. A man that is an heretic after the first and second admonition reject; Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.” Titus 3:9-11 (King James Version)
The bible tells us to admonish and correct the false teacher twice. Once they continue to reject the truth we are to reject them. Why did the Lexi show even give an ear to Pearson knowing full well he is a heretic? What were her motives? Was it ratings?
The church has already rejected Pearson and his teachings, but still continues to give him a platform to speak on in violation of Titus 3. In this, we make a serious error and only make things harder for ourselves.
