Mainline denominations which have given themselves over to doctrines of devils are not enjoying a life of fruitful bliss. They are being bled dry of churches and members who decided they will not stay in fellowship with those who reject the truth of the scripture. Many left are old, white graying reprobates who think they are being progressive by teaching that homosexuality is a gift from God. GCM Watch advocates and encourages immediate and permanent separation from any organized body, any fellowship, any religious grouping which condones homosexual practices in any form. Staying will only cause you to die a slow death with them.
Thankfully some are waking up to the reality that reform with these heretics is not possible.
After a 2011 decision allowing gay ordinations, 270 congregations left in 2012 and 2013. And church analysts estimate upwards of another 100 churches may leave by the end of the year as presbyteries vote on a proposal to rewrite the church’s constitution to refer to marriage as being between “two people” instead of the union of “a man and a woman.”
In the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, some 600 congregations left in 2010 and 2011 following the denomination’s 2009 decision allowing the ordination of pastors in same-sex relationships.
That the denominations’ changing stances on gay ordinations and same-sex marriages were a key factor in the exodus is without question. But new research into why congregations decided to leave reveal differences on sexuality issues were only part of a much larger divide.
Among the broader, longstanding concerns that convinced departing congregations that they no longer had a home in their denominations that Carthage College researchers found were:
• “Bullying” tactics by denominational leaders.
• A perceived abandonment of foundational principles of Scripture and tradition.
• The devaluation of personal faith.
“The ones that left said reform was not possible,” said Carthage sociologist Wayne Thompson, study leader.
You read that correctly. The ones who are the loudest shills for “love, acceptance, tolerance and understanding” are the biggest religious bullies on the block. Those who disagree with them will receive no love, no acceptance, no tolerance and no understanding. In other words, reform is not possible. Leave those who are dead to the truth to bury the dead.
David Briggs’ article further explains: Leaders of churches departing from the ELCA said along with the policy on gay ordinations that the denomination was no longer a good fit for their churches and it was important for them to disassociate with the reputation of their former governing body.
More specific reasons included claims that some ELCA leaders were “dictatorial” and that the denomination was undermining the authority of scripture and was more interested in social justice work than traditional ministry, Carthage researchers John Augustine and Brian Hansen reported.
Departing Presbyterian leaders also characterized the policy on gay ordinations as “the straw that broke the camel’s back,” but far from the sole reason.
Their concerns included claims that the denomination was overly politicized and weakening biblical authority and traditional teaching on the divinity of Jesus.
“The situation in the PC (U.S.A.) was hopeless as I see it,” said one Presbyterian pastor who left with his congregation to join the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians.
“Our new presbytery is … trying to help us be successful without being bullied by a denomination that has turned its back on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
As the angel asked the women looking for the risen Savior, “why do you look for the living among the dead?”
Recognize any of these false house prophets associated with the United Progressive Pentecostal Church? The homosexual-oriented pentecostalish organization is headed by chief false teacher OC Allen. The UPPC teaches that homosexuality is acceptable to God and that the bible is not opposed to same gender sexual relationships.
Then the LORD said to me, “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions, divinations, idolatries and the delusions of their own minds.
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 Peter 2:1
With its mindless vote to sanction homosexuality, the Presbyterian Church USA proves over and over a salient truth found in Romans 1. With their final corporate sanctioning of homosexuality, they have in tandem, also approved a form of child murder and openly declared hostility towards Isreal and the people of God. When you approve of homosexuality, there’s no bottom to the wickedness you will sink into. Homosexuality is the litmus test of spiritual and moral sanity. If you allow your mind to sanction it for any reason, youre already in quicksand you cannot escape from. As the Apostle Paul wrote UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF THE HOLY GHOST:
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. Romans 1:28-32
And the logistical consequences of voting progay are just as bizarre. Those advocating for these profane policies aren’t populating the pews in Presbyterian churches. The average church has only a few old, white people in it. That means those who are pressing for these policies have zero interest in the health of the church. Rather, they hastening its demise. Most likely so they can move on to their next target.
Mark Tooley noted that the 1.7 million member PCUSA suffered some type of spiritual meltdown, authorizing clergy to conduct same sex unions, reaffirming its commitment to largely unrestricted abortion rights, and voting to divest from three firms doing business with Israel. The PCUSA has lost over 200,000 members since 2010 but the gleeful liberals piloting the doomed ship are oblivious to that fact. Tooley estimates the entire denomination will cease to exist in a mere 20 years.
A good write up in Barbwire about so called “queer theology”. But be warned its like having to watch rotting animal carcasess. Its filthy, disgusting and unbelieveably called Christian. Perhaps queer is an appropriate label for it considering its so far outside the norm of Christian theology, its just like the sexual activity that spawned it.
Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons. 1 Timothy 4:1
Gay theology paints everything, every interpretation of the bible’s passages (the ones they are interested in) with an infected sexual brush. A sample from the article:
According to “gay pastor” Timothy R. Koch, in his article “Cruising as Methodology: Homoeroticism and the Scriptures,” the description of Elijah in 2 Kings 1:8, wearing goat skins and a leather belt, means that he was “channeling goat gods” as the scriptural prototype of the homosexual “leather” subculture. Koch also makes many other such disturbing “discoveries.” For instance, 2 Kings 10:12–17 contains an account of Israel’s King Jehu and Jehonadab taking an innocent ride in a chariot, but to Koch’s warped mind, the text is pregnant with sexual innuendo as he envisions this episode as a “clear” reference to a homosexual pleasure trip. And in Judges 3:12–26, when Ehud plunged an 18-inch knife into Israel’s Moabite oppressor, Eglon, Koch takes great interpretive liberties to distort this passage into a scene of sexual penetration by a phallus.
In the same Queer Commentary, Lori Rowlett’s article “Violent Femmes and S/M [Sadomasochism]: Queering Samson and Delilah” makes the preposterous claim that, “Delilah is a the femme dominatrix teasing and tormenting Samson, who has all the characteristics of a ‘butch bottom’” [a lesbian sexually receptive partner].
Robert E. Goss, a former Jesuit priest, abandoned his Catholic ministry to pursue a homosexual relationship. His books include Jesus Acted Up: A Gay and Lesbian Manifesto and Queering Christ: Beyond Jesus Acted Up. Goss is a recognized theological “leader” in the Metropolitan Community Church, the primary “gay Christian” denomination. Goss even achieved a false air of respectability when he won the 2000 Templeton Course Prize in Religion and Science. According to Rev. Edward Ingebretsen, Director of American Studies at Georgetown University, Goss is a “preeminent” voice who fulfills a “prophetic role” for the Christian “resistance.” And what does this foremost homosexual “prophet” have to say? Goss writes: “Jesus evolved from a friend in childhood, to lover, and to the Queer Christ calling me out of the closet into the streets as an activist priest…I trace my first unspoken words of physical attraction to the crucified Jesus, wanting to strip off his loincloth and gaze at his genitals … I lusted after the figure of Christ, imagining him as the bearded hunk depicted by Michelangelo.” Moreover, this offensive “prophet” of perversion also deviously interprets the Roman centurion’s spearing of Christ as an erotic image of “a penetrated male, a bottom [the passive sexual partner in a male homosexual act].”
How anyone in their right mind could remotely claim any of this is associated with Christ or even common sense is beyond bizarre. But whole Christian denominations have been subverted and permanently disfigured by beliefs like this. That’s why Gay Christian Movement Watch will continue to fight with the sharpest of swords this lie from the deepest pits of hell. Over the last seven years we have dutifully documented and refuted this vicious heretical strain. See our past stories and articles here.
And now for the whitewashed version of events about the origin of the gay christian movement.
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
