Says it is what God is telling him to do.
Whose GOD? The God I serve has made it plain in His Word etc...
Exactly. That is my question, too.
The "god of this world" most certainly :tear:
Sad but true.
I agree this is awful. But that part about the death threats, if true, really make me feel sick to my stomach.
Which is more sick, what the "bishop" is doing by leading people by the hand to hell or someone making a threat? Which one is really taking place and which one is really just words?
“My life is under threat again for my attending the Lambeth Conference this summer, but we’re told in Scripture that it will always be costly to follow in God’s way,” Robinson said, his tone full of calm conviction. “When you try to love the world the way God loves the world, you’re going to get in trouble. The prophets of Judaism got in trouble. Jesus got in trouble.”
He's equating their proclaiming God's message with being a sodomite.
It is easy to pick on this...er... "man", but he needs our prayers and God will deal with him.
This "Bishop" is not a man of God but of satan.
I am sure he's a man of some god for it was his god who escorted him from the closet. Sometimes God needs us out the closet so we can realize what we're doing is truly wrong and how it impacts other believers. We think it doesn't hurt anyone but me as long as I stay in my closet.
Secret sin is the most damaging kind of sin because it falsly makes us believe that everyone wearing my uniform and pointing their rifle my same direction carrying the same bible as me must be in my army fighting for my same cause. It's a tough predicament when the fiery darts fly to learn the guy in the foxhole with you is not committed to your cause. It's a predicament only God can get you out of. Might be good he came out the closet so the rest of know not to count on him just yet.
Now if His God is the same God I serve, he will be convicted of his sin, repent and change his ways. As Brother Bob would say, sorrow is in His path!!!
I couldn't imagine being the man of God and having others come to me openly appreciating my sin as a validation for their sin. How can you look forward to the second coming of the King knowing you contaminated the army? Tough judgment day I suppose??? Carrying such a load??? :BangHead:
Sorry to ramble but been sick all week so been missing the pulpit... :godisgood:
He needs to remember that 'the way of transgressors is hard' also...
I bet this is a thread you won't get any baptists to debate on. :laugh:
Well, you do have the Log Cabin Repulicans. And, I'm sure there are some Log Cabin Baptists too.
It is clearly not God telling him to do this.
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
and this is why phrases such as
"This is how I feel led"
"God told me this"
make me really uncomfortable.
Yes, the god of this world--satan.
