Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Southern Baptist Child Molestation Scandal Growing

Posted by Job on February 22, 2007

The same group of people who went after the Catholic priests are now targeting the Southern Baptists (click here). Gotta be honest: I am not surprised. Molestation and other sex scandals were common in the “church” that I attended growing up and in other area churches as well, and when I went to other places I heard about the same experiences. Hopefully this will end the Catholic bashing that many Protestants engaged in when they were going through THEIR scandal a few years back; this just shows that the devil is busy everywhere. We Christians cannot defend evil; we must call it for what it is. These people are criminals who need to be prosecuted, and if churches allowed this to go on (including hiring people and putting them in sensitive positions without background checks), then they should pay legal damages. These folks want to go after the Southern Baptist Convention, who say that each Baptist church is “independent.” You mean, er, like NONDENOMINATIONAL churches? Of course, they are not as hierarchial as the Catholic Church, but come on, rumors of this behavior have been going on for decades, so much so that it has become common fodder for the anti – Christian element that wishes to label the whole lot of us as hypocrites.

And none of you people out there should go claiming this as some nefarious attempt by the media and atheists to destroy the church. 1) We do a pretty good job of that ourselves without any conspiracy and 2) there are TONS of church scandals that the media COULD (and probably SHOULD) report but choose not to because they are afraid of offending church people. Look, it took years and years of lawsuits and people coming forward before the Catholic priest scandal was fully reported, for instance, and back then you had a whole bunch of people claiming that it was just a plot to defame and destroy the church too. But how can we keep seeing stuff like this and claim that there is no devil? That there are no evil spirits? That sin is not real? That the lake of fire and eternal judgment are not real? How can a Christian see this and not be motivated to take a strong spiritual warfare stand against the enemy when the enemy is doing stuff like this? Oh, you folks will get all angry and ready to fight when made up nonsense like “the war on Christmas” and “The Da Vinci Code” and “The Last Temptation of Christ” culture/politics “wars” are manufactured and made merchandise of, but when REAL BATTLES LIKE THIS arise, that is when the real warriors for Christ stand and fight, and the cowards scurry under their beds and cut off their night lights. I entreat you to join the real warriors for Christ in battle on this and on many other vital issues today!

Father God YHVH in the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach, please bring comfort and healing to the many victims of molestation and rape at the hands of pastors and other church leaders. May they seek spiritual deliverance, and may they be able to forgive their attackers so that the spiritual deliverance is fully effective. In the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach, may the people who committed, participated in, or helped conceal these crimes publicly confess and repent of their sins, knowing that you will forgive their sins as promised in Your Word, and may they also seek spiritual deliverance from their spirits of molestation, rape, unnatural affection, violence, lust, control, and whatever else is present in them. By the Blood of Yeshua HaMashiach, I bind these and all other demons that are moving through these people and our churches causing this epidemic of rape, molestation, abortion, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, divorce, and other forms of sexual immorality, impurity, and sin in the church. In the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach, amen.
