Annise Parker, the lesbian lord mayor of Houston, Texas believes she can issue edicts to Houston Pastors who oppose her ludicrous ” transgender bathroom” law. No, we don’t want some revised, narrow scope subpoena, we want it entirely withdrawn! There exists ZERO justification for the government to make such a brazen anti-Christian demand on these pastors! As William Penn wrote, “Men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants.” The resistance is in full effect. Sign the support petition launched by FaithDrivenConsumers
A collection of reports and opinions from across web world:
We’re posting this for two reasons. 1. Gay science really is fake. It should be in the fraudulent science hall of shame. 2. Gay christians use fake gay science to support their fake gay religious beliefs.
Using parallels with the people who built the tower of Babel, noted revivalist John Burton of Detroit reveals in Charisma Magazine a brutally honest portrait of the homosexual movement’s social agenda along with nine “prophetic keys” that can restrain its power. If you’re sick of the Osteenish type of equivocation , read on and equip yourself.
We agree with Pastor Burton: we are at war! Too many Christians still fail to see homosexuality and its destructive agenda as the foremost threat to the spiritual health and welfare of the church. That ignorance works to the advantage of the church’s enemies. Because the church is the last line of defense against this agenda’s insatiable lust for dominance, multiple strategies have been launched to break those defenses.
Its important for faithful Christians opposed to the homosexual agenda to know its not our charge to eradicate sin of any kind. We need not fret ourselves over laws passed. Remember they passed laws against Daniel, and it looked like his opponents had won a great victory over his refusal to obey the unjust law. But we all know how that turned out. Our responsibility is to restrain and restrict sin’s growth and influence. We accomplish this by being what Jesus identified as “salt and light” in Matthew 5:13-16. Such sin retardants have profound affect on the greater good. Unrestrained sin with no Christians is like a forest fire with no firefighters.
Burton shares insight and a harder strategic response needed in this season. “God opened up a powerful strategy to disrupt the momentum of the homosexual agenda to me—and a successful campaign will result in innumerable people set free.”, he says.
Barton believes this strategy will set people free if the church can unify around it. That may be the most difficult part of the strategy is unity. Our unity was the first defense attacked and it has not yet recovered. There is a growing schism —a spiritual civil war if you will— on the issue of homosexuality and its parent problem the authority and credibility of scripture.
The agenda of the gay movement is patently deceptive because the spirit controlling it is deceptive. Deception is primarily a spiritual issue which must be fought with spiritual weapons.
“The gay agenda is driven by a spirit. We must keep this in mind. Of course, we don’t wrestle with people. We wrestle with unholy spirits. But it’s true that many people are in alliance with those very spirits we are battling, so it’s unfortunately common for there to be collateral damage. Don’t mistake that collateral damage with fighting against flesh and blood. When we deal with evil spirits, those who renounce them will be set free, while those who embrace them will experience their judgment.”
In the conspiracy, Burton has also spotted the gay christian movement. Its role as favored religious aberration by the political homosexual movement is unmistakable.
When they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens… —Gen.11:4a
The goal then was to take dominion, and that’s the goal now. The city represents the plan to spread horizontally around the world—to see homosexuality become not only accepted, but the primary leader of humanity. This spirit doesn’t simply want to be affirmed—it wants to dominate. The tower represents a connection with heaven. The “gay Christian” movement is moving at the speed of light—and even the most biblically sound arguments against it are not convincing those who are seduced by this spirit. The unity is too strong, and the response of the church has been too weak. This simultaneous horizontal and vertical advance of the homosexual movement is brilliant, though not original. We saw it at Babel, and we’ll see it again at the end of the age.
Some Christians ad social conservatives are already conceding that social issues such as homosexual marriage, like abortion, will eventually become the law of the land. When it occurs that doesn’t mean the fight has been lost but rather that ultimate victory is nearer than we may imagine. According to Jesus, the widespread proliferation of perversion is not a victory for its supporters, its a sign to its opponents that our redemption is nigh.
Even with this in mind our response is never to retreat to isolationist positions deep in religious ghettos called churches. The Jews of the Warsaw ghetto showed us that no matter how great the odds against us, they are temporary. Evil may indeed appear to triumph for a season. When we will have done all we are charged to do, what remains is in the hands of our sovereign God.
Writing on The Witherspoon Society’s Public Discourse blog, Janna Darnelle (pen name) responded to white homosexual males and the new cottage industry created to supply their demand for a “family” Darnelle writes that purchasing children and using women as “breeders” devalues and ultimately erases true womanhood. Darnelle’s point is that so called gay families headed by homosexual men are unnaturally created at the expense of women.
“There is not one gay family that exists in this world that was created naturally. Every same-sex family can only exist by manipulating nature. Behind the happy façade of many families headed by same-sex couples, we see relationships that are built from brokenness. They represent covenants broken, love abandoned, and responsibilities crushed. They are built on betrayal, lies, and deep wounds.”
Channel 8 WISHTV carried this interesting story involving a gay church in Indianapolis.
A church congregation that was expecting to share space with another was forced to worship outside on Sunday. Now, the pastor is threatening to take legal action. The pastor of Powerhouse Church of Indianapolis gave 24-Hour News 8 a copy of the contract he had with The House of God Church to use its facility. He said when they showed up for their first service this morning, they weren’t allowed inside. A church isn’t just defined by its four walls. It’s defined by the people who worship there. And standing under the sun along Schofield Avenue, members of Powerhouse Church of Indianapolis proudly put that on display.
Who wrote this “news story”, one of the church members? Since when does a real reporter editorialize in a news story about whether the church is a true representative of a biblical congregation or not? But we digress on the media’s incestuous desires for all things gay. The House of God made no comment as to the reason why it denied access to the incognito gay church.
“This was to be our first service here. We had signed a temporary lease for three months to worship here while we were in transition to our next space,” said the church leader Keith McQueen. “We gave them money, we had signatures and when we showed up, we were denied access not only to the church, but even onto the property.”
Some are calling the situation a publicity stunt to attract more members. Given the slant of the report, it sounds like they found someone willing to whip up the emotive frenzy in the church’s favor.
Pastors beware, homosexual churches have went full scale incognito! Before you allow any church to rent your facility, you should inquire as to their beliefs on homosexuality. Ask pointed, direct questions about the church’s doctrine, the lifestyle of the pastor or leader and who they are connected to. In addition do some basic online research to see who these people are BEFORE you agree to let sex heretics use your facility to “worship” a god different than the one you know to be true. In addition, update your bylaws and policies NOW to reflect what activities are allowed on your property.
This deception is something GCM Watch pointed out before here. Gay churches are disguising their true identities for one reason: to gain access that in most cases they could never have. In order to accomplish that four deceptive tactics are used.
1. They no longer own the term “gay” in connection with their churches. Now, the term of choice is “inclusive”, “inclusion” or “LGBTQI”. They dont want to be known as a gay church for same reason they dropped identifying with the term homosexual. Once inclusion becomes a liability, they will drop it as well and find another deceptive term to hide behind.
2. They have names that ape pentecostal churches i.e. Powerhouse
3. They ape church titles, forms of dress, etc. Wearing long robes, clergy collars, calling themselves bishops, apostles, etc.
4. Speaking “churchanese” which fools unsuspecting churches, especially those who need the extra money.
Whether the House of God church could legally do what they did is for the law to decide.
Cardinal Francis George, head of the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago, responding in the organization’s official newspaper to the State’s demand that citizens accept its gay marriage edicts or face social persecution
“What was once a request to live and let live has now become a demand for approval,” “The ‘ruling class,’ those who shape public opinion in politics, in education, in communications, in entertainment, is using the civil law to impose its own form of morality on everyone.
“We are told that, even in marriage itself, there is no difference between men and women, although nature and our very bodies clearly evidence that men and women are not interchangeable at will in forming a family. Nevertheless, those who do not conform to the official religion, we are warned, place their citizenship in danger.
“The inevitable result is a crisis of belief for many Catholics. Throughout history, when Catholics and other believers in revealed religion have been forced to choose between being taught by God or instructed by politicians, professors, editors of major newspapers and entertainers, many have opted to go along with the powers that be.
“This reduces a great tension in their lives, although it also brings with it the worship of a false god,” “It takes no moral courage to conform to government and social pressure. It takes a deep faith to ‘swim against the tide.’
