East Africa Journal: “Problems Facing Our Socialism” -By Barack Hussein Obama Sr. This explains a lot. I read about this in Forbes today. One of the President’s books is titled Dreams From My Father. Barack is basically living out the socialist dreams of his alcoholic polygamist father that he barely knew. The loyalty might be touching if he weren’t damaging the country fulfilling his father’s dream.
Foundry United Methodist Church in Washington, DC voted this week to allow same-gender marriages in its church building and to support its clergy members should they choose to perform same-gender marriage ceremonies in the future, whether at Foundry or somewhere else.
. . .
Will this vote be largely symbolic, analogous to a state or municipality voting to ignore federal law– or will Foundry be following through with the vote by performing actual same sex wedding ceremonies? I suspect the latter, and if that’s indeed the case, then all eyes will be on Bishop John R. Schol of the Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference to see whether he’ll hold Foundry accountable or look the other way.
The vote at the church was 367 to 8. Wow, what an amazingly thorough mockery of God’s word and natural law.
I hope we exercise some church discipline for once and kick them out. Let ‘em start a new denomination. These people can’t even get Genesis 2 right, let alone the rest of the Bible.
This isn’t complicated, folks. Even many pro-”same sex marriage” promoting “Christians” will concede the following (yes, some will say Christian just read the Bible incorrectly for 2,000 years, but many will concede that the Bible is clear but that it isn’t all the word of God and that Paul was a homophobe).
- 100% of the verses addressing homosexual behavior denounce it as sin in the clearest and strongest possible terms.
- 100% of the verses referring to God’s ideal for marriage involve one man and one woman.
- 100% of the verses referencing parenting involve moms and dads with unique roles (or at least a set of male and female parents guiding the children).
- 0% of 31,173 Bible verses refer to homosexual behavior in a positive or even benign way or even hint at the acceptability of homosexual unions.
Seriously, kick this church out. Treat gays like we would other sinners: Welcome them, share the Gospel with them but don’t teach the opposite of what the Bible says.
Once again I’m on the “Methodist ledge” and wondering why I bother with this denomination.
Found a good blog via the previous link – another one of those almost-extinct evangelical Methodists. Loved his comment on this lame commercial:”What if a church actually proclaimed the Gospel for the forgiveness of sins? Would you come?”
The UMC needs to rethink church, alright. They need to think about what the Bible says about it for a change.
From my other blog — Surprise! Another UCC false teacher — False teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie found another false UCC teacher to praise — see CNN: UCC Pastor Carlton Pearson Speaks About Eddie Long.
Geithner Cornered On Tax Hypocrisy – He vastly underpaid his taxes but wants to raise them for others. Check.
I love this song by Brandon Heath — “Give me your eyes.”
It isn’t like I expect good theology from Pearls Before Swine, but it is ironic how the goat unwittingly does the same thing that so many Christians and non-Christians do: Hypocritically judges others for judging. Of course, if they read Matthew 7:1-5 in context then they wouldn’t make this mistake.
Saw this on my daughter’s Facebook page.
