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

JAMES DOBSON ENDORSES MORMON MITT ROMNEY!

Posted by Job on February 6, 2008

I first saw this here but it was confirmed in this devotional as well. Man oh man, I love this election season. So many prominent Christian leaders in the limelight are being exposed for what they are. From the people backing Huckabee despite knowing his connections to the Council on Foreign Relations and to apostates like Kenneth Copeland and John Hagee to Pat Robertson backing Giuliani to the MANY evangelicals and even some fundamentalists backing Mormon Mitt Romney to Donnie McClurkin and many other leading black Christians backing Barack HUSSEIN Obama (here, here, here, here, here, here) well the Lord is exposing for the whole world to see what these prominent Christians are really about and after – the things of this world.Christians, is this the falling away of the American church? If so, make sure that you are not part of that falling away. In a sense, things have been this bad for quite awhile, because the fact that Martin Luther King, Jr. was no better than a Mormon because he did not believe in the deity or resurrection of Jesus Christ despite it being commonly reported … so many people do not know because they do not care to know. And never forget: King’s rise was due to so many alleged Christians, many of them evangelicals and fundamentalists, supporting segregation and racism! Still, I regularly ask some older (than me) Christians have things always been this bad, and even the ones that personally experienced segregation and poverty say without hesitation “No, it wasn’t.”

***DR. DOBSON AND RUSH LIMBAUGH ARE THE LATEST TO JOIN THE “JUDAS GALLERY” !!! WWW.VOTINGFORSATAN.COM IS ONLINE!!! I’ve launched this new website — www.votingforsatan.com — not to tell people who to or not to vote for, but to help educate people on what Mormon’s really believe and hold accountable high-profile Christians who have endorsed cult member Romney’s bid for
the Presidency. The new site features an interactive section with
polls and a great message board where you can post your thoughts and
comments, news notes on the race for the White House, my numerous
Devotionals on Romney and the Mormon church, in-depth writings by an
ex-Mormon that clearly lay out the beliefs and theology of Mormonism,
as well as special videos including the TV program I did in the magical
Mormon underwear worn 24/7 by high level Mormons. Please check it out
and help me by telling everyone you know about this new site, and post
it on every message board and chat room you can find, especially the
sites that cater to politics.

“The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, prophesy against the
shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign
LORD says: Woe to the shepherds of Israel who only take care of themselves!
Should not shepherds take care of the flock? You eat the curds, clothe
yourselves with the wool and slaughter the choice animals, but you do not
take care of the flock. You have not strengthened the weak or healed the
sick or bound up the injured. You have not brought back the strays or
searched for the lost. You have ruled them harshly and brutally. So they
were scattered because there was no shepherd, and when they were scattered
they became food for all the wild animals. My sheep wandered over all the
mountains and on every high hill. They were scattered over the whole earth,
and no one searched or looked for them.” Ezekiel 34:1-6

A sad commentary on so many pastors and Christian leaders right from God’s
Word. Last week I was doing some study in the Book of Ezekiel. In reading
through some passages, I came across these first 6 verses in Ezekiel 34. As
I read these words, I could only think that this was the sad description of
so many pastors and Christian leaders today. 50 years ago, you could sit in
the pew of most any church of any denomination and hear the Truth of God’s
Word. Those pastors and the men and women God raised up on the national
scene were men and women who would never compromise the Truth of the Bible
and understood their only mission was to bring the lost to Christ.

Fast forward to the year 2008 and you have entire denominations of pastors
who don’t even preach, teach or believe the Bible. It is questionable if
many pastors were ever “called” and are even saved. Those who have risen up
into national prominence are more worried about selling books, having the
newest private jet, building bigger buildings, and living like the rulers of
small nations rather than preaching the unadulterated Truth of the Bible and
leading the lost to faith in Jesus Christ. My goodness, you now have
so-called Christian leaders who are endorsing and working for the member of
a satanic cult to become our next President!!!

When these are the men and women leading the people, why are we surprised
that many who sit in the pews of the nations churches on Sunday aren’t even
saved, don’t accept the Bible as Absolute Truth and our only authority, and
the majority of the ones who do lead weak and ineffective lives. That is
why I encourage people all the time to seek out a pastor who is a true
shepherd. That is increasingly difficult today, but there are still many
men of God who have not bowed their knee to Baal and are not the shepherds
described in Ezekiel 34. Sunday is the day most Christians go to church. It
is the only time most of you ever see your pastor, and that is usually from
your seat in the sanctuary as he leads the worship service and preaches the
message.

Having preached in over 500 churches of every denomination nationwide, I can
honestly tell you that for most pastors, Sunday morning is their favorite
day of the week and the one day they usually feel their work for God really
has some meaning. You can never know the pressure most pastors are under. If
it was only getting up on Sunday morning and being the “man of God” it would
be wonderful, but that is not reality. It is a 7-day a week, 24-hour a day
calling. Many have outside jobs. There is the constant pressures of raising
the budget, dealing with the interpersonal problems that always exist when
you have a group of people, overseeing the political infighting that often
occurs, on top of the spiritual requirements of shepherding the flock,
having an anointed word each week for the various services, and other
requirements the office of pastor carries with it.

My prayer for you today is to support your pastor. Pray for your pastor each
day. John 10 gives us the picture of the ideal pastor. Pray that your pastor
will be able to tear away from the distractions of this world to be the
shepherd described in John 10. God has placed that pastor in your life to
guide you, spiritually nurture you, and have spiritual leadership over your
life. Do all you can to show your love and appreciation for all your pastor
does for you, most of which you may not even recognize. Also, God has placed
your pastor in your life for spiritual leadership. When you come into times
of crisis, don’t hesitate to go to your pastor. That is ultimately why they
are there, to help you and guide you through those difficult times in your
life.

I love you and care about you so much. I pray for you daily. Sadly, today
there are too many pastors and Christian leaders who fall into the
description found in Ezekiel 34. It makes the work that much more difficult
when you have people running around calling themselves Christians, but
supporting sins like abortion, homosexuality, the destruction of God’s plan
fo the family. You have others who think there is nothing wrong with
belonging to a cult or false religions and they have bought the
universalistic lie from hell that everyone will get to Heaven.

Let this message today be a remember to lift up your pastor in prayer and
recognize him for all he does for your life. God has called His sheep to be
obedient and obey those in spiritual authority. Take inventory and see if
you are fulfilling this admonition, and ask God to help you. He loves you so
much, that he has placed your pastor in your life to shepherd you and guide
you in your spiritual journey. Show your love for Him today by praying for
and supporting your pastor.

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller bkeller@liveprayer.com

Want A List Of Pastors Who Took Sun Myung Moon’s Money?

Some of these folks appear to have been aligned with his right wing political groups only. Others, though, used his money to pay off debts and support their ministries. Others still are very heavily involved with the guy.

Anne Coulter: Heretic

Posted by Job on October 12, 2007

Anne Coulter has exposed herself to be a heretic preacher of dual covenant theology. Why? Because she is a player in the religious right, and in order to be so, you have to mollify all of the people in the tent. If some of the people in the tent (fundamentalist, evangelical, and traditional Christians) are telling the others (Mormons, Catholics, Jews, etc.) that unless they accept the God of the Bible through Jesus Christ only that they are going to spend an eternity in the lake of fire, the tent collapses! Please see the link below: http://www.israelforum.com/board/showthread.php?threadid=13227

Some excerpts:

COULTER: UMMMMM (pause) … It would look like New York City during the Republican National Convention. In fact, that’s what I think heaven is going to look like.

No heretic Coulter, America is not new Jerusalem and the Republican Party is not the body of Christ.

Now she made several comments leading up to this, but here is the payoff.

COULTER: No, no, no, no, no. I don’t want you being offended by this. This is what Christians consider themselves, because our testament is the continuation of your testament. You know that. So we think Jews go to heaven. I mean (Jerry) Falwell himself said that, but you have to follow laws. Ours is “Christ died for our sins.” We consider ourselves perfected Christians. For me to say that for you to become a Christian is to become a perfected Christian is not offensive at all.

This is false you heretic who is prostituting the gospel for political expediency. You do not serve the true Christ, but rather your craven lust for money and power. The New Testament says over and over again that the law cannot get you into heaven because A) none could keep the law but Jesus Christ (who is GOD) and B) the law was never given as a means to provide for salvation to begin with, but rather to set Israel apart from the other nations. Coulter has read Romans, Galatians, Hebrews, and the gospels. She knows this. She just doesn’t care about Jesus Christ, and because of that she doesn’t love the Jews that she is lying to in her claims to not want to offend them. If she truly loved the Jewish people, she would tell them about John 14:26 – that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven – and stand firm on it.

COULTER: No, it’s true. I give all of these speeches at megachurches across America, and the one thing that’s really striking about it is how utterly, completely diverse they are, and completely unself-consciously. You walk past a mixed-race couple in New York, and it’s like they have a chip on their shoulder. They’re just waiting for somebody to say something, as if anybody would. And —

So which megachurches allow this heretic to address their congregations? Well, that tells you what God THEY are serving, doesn’t it?

Now folks, this proves that the religious right is quickly becoming just as apostate as the religious left, because it cannot survive without resorting to ecumenism and universalism.

Juanita Bynum At Barack HUSSEIN Obama Fundraiser Held By New Age Witch Oprah Winfrey?

Posted by Job on September 7, 2007

I must ask: have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? If not, follow this link: The Three Step Salvation Plan

See it here!
ajc.com/news/content/metro/gwinnett/stories/2007/09/06/bynum_0907.html?cxntlid=homepage_tab_newstab

So here you have a woman raised in and representing Pentecostal/charismatic Christianity speaking at a fundraiser to support the ambitions of one such as Obama who supports abortion, homosexuality, and a number of other abominations? At an event hosted by the best known proponent of the New Age false religion in America (yes, Barbra Streisand, Oprah has surpassed you, and what makes her worse than you is that Oprah promotes mixing New Age and Christianity … after all, she and Barack Obama are both members of the same “church”)? See Is Oprah Winfrey’s New Age “The Secret” The Same As Word – Faith Prosperity? It just shows you that the Bible is true yet again: Amos 3:3 says “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?“ So you supporters of Juanita Bynum and all of these other false preachers when there are so many good hard working legitimate preachers out there … who are YOU walking in agreement with? I will say this: someone who thinks so little of you that they are so bold enough to lie to you on worldwide CHRISTIAN television while knowing full well that her lies will be exposed: Juanita Bynum Lies On TBN! Oh yes, and how that “Christian” TV station TBN just sat back and allowed her to lie like that unchallenged because she is one of their top moneymakers? It is time to stop walking in agreement too. We really do need to consider contacting the legitimate ministries that appear on this network and urge them to stop giving legitimacy – and money – to these people. You would have hoped that they would have done so after Paul Crouch personally endorsed ‘ heretical dual covenant theology: that Islam is just as legitimate as Christianity, but maybe they need some action by the rank and file faithful first. What do you think? And do you think that contacting the legitimate preachers on TBN to ask them to disassociate themselves from these evil people would be effective or worthwhile?

Juanita Bynum Lies On TBN!

Posted by Job on September 6, 2007

She says “I will not break the covenant” on TBN and talks about how she still loves Thomas Weeks III, because he is a man of God. Unbeknown to the 100% supportive studio audience and the viewing audience (but almost certainly known to TBN, who had set her up with the most favorable interviewer possible), SHE HAD ALREADY AUTHORIZED HER LAWYER TO FILE FOR DIVORCE! Now I believe in exploring all angles, so in the interests of fairness, she could be just keeping that option open and performing due diligence, as divorce petitions can be withdrawn at any time. But that does not change the fact that she totally misled her audience.

What was most amazing was the brazenness of this woman. She KNEW that people who were not her regular audience would be watching – including the media – and that they were going to catch her in a lie. But you know what? She doses not care about being caught in deception. Why? Because she has been deceiving people all these years and still keeps her supporters. If she has been lying all this long and none of her supporters care, why should they start caring now? It is obvious based on the comments on this very weblog that the supporters of Juanita Bynum will continue to be so, and even make railing accusations and “prophecies” of doom against all who speak the truth. I can already predict what defenses I will get. Folks are going to say “I am not breaking the covenant” does not mean “I will not divorce my husband.” While that is true, it ignores that Juanita Bynum has been playing this game for a long time and is very crafty; choosing her words to give herself – and her supporters – a line of defense; plausible deniability, just like lawyer Bill Clinton did when he said “It depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.” (Now do not lump me in with those Rush Limbaugh “blame everything on Clinton” types … if anything those people were all in it together … after all both Clinton and his “number one enemy” Newt Gingrich are members of the same Council of Foreign Relations that the owners of TBN as well as many prominent ministers like Rick Warren and TD Jakes are either members of or run with … all committed to the same global agenda. Just do a Google search on “Council on Foreign Relations” and “Center For National Policy” and include the names of Paul Crouch, Rick Warren, TD Jakes, etc. and see what you come up with. But none of that changes the fact that CLINTON WAS LYING THEN AND JUANITA BYNUM IS LYING NOW.)

Yet we will continue to speak the truth, because we serve not man but the Spirit of Truth; the very same God whom people like this – and their supports – mock with their lies and doctrines. But do not worry, God is not mocked! Judgment day is coming. If this whole ugly episode has convinced you of the need to get right with the one true God, follow The Three Step Salvation Plan right now! By the way … thanks to Independent Conservative for the clip, which he used in the original link:

Do You Preach To The Choir Or To The Lost?

Posted by Job on August 24, 2007

Click http://www.liveprayer.com/signup.cfm to sign up for Pastor Keller’s devotionals!

The difference between preaching to the choir and reaching the lost masses
outside the four walls of the church. I spent the first 3 years of my
ministry preaching in over 500 churches all over the country. It was a
wonderful time in my life, but deep inside I knew something was missing.
I’ll never forget laying in a hotel bed in Peoria, Illinois after a great
service that evening in a large Assemblies of God Church. Many people came
forward at the invitation that evening and accepted Christ into their heart
and life by faith, but the Holy Spirit opened my spiritual eyes and told me
that the masses who needed to hear about the hope we have in Jesus the most
weren’t sitting in the pews of that church. They were the ones living
outside those four walls!

Let me share a question with you I get all the time during the many media
interviews I do. It is a GREAT QUESTION that comes from reporters who aren’t
Believers. They ask me why are there more churches, more ministries, more
Christian resources, more Christian media, than ever before in the history
of Christendom, yet at the same time our culture and the world around us is
in a spiritual freefall, the better percentage of two full generations don’t
even go to church, and Christianity has very little impact in the daily
lives of the vast majority of people. It seems to be quite a paradox doesn’t
it? With all the churches and Christian influence that exists today, this
should be a far better world.

I respond to their question by telling them the answer is quite simple. The
above phenomena exists because we preach to the choir instead of reaching
out to those who need the message the most. We have retreated into this
incestuous place I call the “Christian trough” where the churches and most
all Christian ministries live and operate. It is this Christian subculture
that has evolved over the past 40 years that consists of the church,
Christian TV and radio, Christian publishing, Christian music, and all of
the various para-chruch ministries. It targets Believers with their message,
not those outside the four walls of the church, since people who are already
Christians will be friendly to the message, buy what they sell, go to
events, and donate their money.

Make no mistake about it, it is business, and BIG business. Billions of
dollars a year! Everyone talks about “reaching the lost,” but the reality is
they all end up simply preaching to the choir because that is where the
money is at! Let me give you a great example. A little over a year ago, I
was in the office of a gentleman who God has richly blessed financially.
Money is relevant and this is a man ho could write a check for $100,000
without blinking an eye. After sharing with him what God was doing at
Liveprayer and asking for him to help us financially, he told me that he
couldn’t help me right now because he had just agreed to head up the finance
team to bring a well-known evangelist to Tampa. He shared that he was
responsible for raising $2.3 million dollars for this 2-day event and that
the evangelist would only agree to come after the money was in the bank.
(Who needs faith to follow this plan?)

Knowing others who were involved in the organization of this event, they
spent over a year getting hundreds of the area churches to get their people
to come to the event. So ultimately it was a couple of services with apx
100,000 people from area churches. Listen, I pray that many hearts and lives
were touched and impacted during those two days. I have no doubt there were
souls saved, and praise God for that. But the point I want to make is that
this is how it works in the world of Christian business. Big names who won’t
even come until they are guaranteed to make so much money. Big events that
are called “evangelistic,” but are full of people who have been recruited to
come from the area churches.

Do you want the perfect contrast? What we are doing for 12 days at the
Florida State Fair next year! For less than $50,000, we will be a title
sponsor and have a major presence with the 5,000 square foot “Liveprayer
Gospel Tent” in the heart of the State Fair that will have 600,000 people in
attendance. Are those people coming to see Liveprayer? No. Most haven’t got
a clue Liveprayer even exists. However, we will be there, boldly and visibly
letting people know that if they are hurting, going through problems in
their life, there is a place to come and find help and hope. We will be
praying for people, no doubt leading many to faith in Christ, and most every
person who comes to the State Fair will have one of our brightly colored
flyers with the Plan of Salvation on it!

THAT IS WHAT THE DIFFERENCE IS BETWEEN PREACHING TO THE CHOIR AND REACHING
OUT TO THE LOST MASSES OUTSIDE THE FOUR WALLS OF THE CHURCH!

I love you and care about you so much. In 2007, this is so critical. If we
are going to truly impact lives, make a real difference in our culture so
God is honored and Biblical Truth becomes the standard once again in this
nation, then the followers of Jesus Christ have got to leave the “Christian
trough” and quit simply preaching to the choir and start making a serious
attempt to reach the lost and hurting masses outside the four walls of the
church! We’ve got to quit worrying about how much money we can make, and
start focusing instead on how many souls we can lead to faith in Christ! We
have got to quit wasting our time and effort reaching people who are already
saved, and start reaching out to those who are clearly lost!

A true evangelist is better off preaching to 20 outside the doors of a
nightclub than a stadium full of people from the local churches. Of course,
the 20 people outside the nightclub aren’t going to buy your products or
give you any money, they probably won’t applaud your message, as a matter of
fact they may even physically attack you because of your message. But at
some point what do we do this for? For fame? For fortune? Or do we do this
because God has called us to reach the lost with the Gospel?

If you have been called to serve the Lord, now is the time to start serving
Him. There is a lost and dying world outside the four walls of the church
that desperately needs God’s Truth and the hope we have in Jesus Christ. God
needs men and women to rise up in these last days who will take His message
of hope to these lost and hurting souls. Paul could have had a nice life
simply preaching to those Believers in the churches of his day. But he
understood that it was the lost who needed to hear the Gospel, since without
Jesus they were going to die and spend eternity in hell. He literally put
his life on the line each day to bring the Good News to the lost and hurting
even though most didn’t want to hear it!

The cold hard reality is that a person who dies without Jesus is going to
spend eternity in hell. People are dying and going to hell every second. We,
who possess the words of everlasting life have a responsibility to bring
that message of salvation through faith in Christ to these dying souls. Why
do we spend all of our time, energy, and resources telling the saved how to
be saved, when it is the lost who need to hear those words of everlasting
life?

I pray that God will stir your heart today and that you will be motivated to
remember that Jesus commanded us to bring the Gospel to those who are living
without the hope of Christ in their life. God has raised up pastors to
shepherd their flocks. True evangelists aren’t called to preach to the
choir, but to bring the Gospel to the lost and hurting OUTSIDE the four
walls of the church!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller

Billy Graham Opposed The Evangelization Of Jews!

Posted by Job on August 23, 2007

Wow, it is becoming more and more difficult to defend Billy Graham! On one hand, a great many people have been brought to Christ and inspired to evangelize by his ministry. On the other, his ties to Roman Catholics and corrupt globalist politicians (The New World Order) cannot be denied. And here now, we see Graham opposing what the Bible clearly says regarding evangelism attempts: to the Jew first and then the Gentile. Why? Well start with the fact that the Vatican Council of the 1960s officially endorsed dual covenant theology. Rejecting that doctrine rejects the authority and inerrancy of the the pope, and ecumenical Protestants like Graham try their best to create a form of Christianity that does not directly conflict with or contradict Roman Catholicism. Second, Graham was, let us face it, universally embraced, loved by THE WORLD. The world demands of all Christians first and foremost that we deny that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation! After we do that, it opens the floodgates to all sorts of things, leading to the very denial of the authority of God and His coming judgment itself. Now of course, all sorts of justifications are given for demanding that Christians not proselytize Jews, and it does include legitimate issues such as past Christian persecution of Jews and their own religious convictions. For that reason, Messianic Jews themselves do a great job of telling us not to be deceptive, coercive, or insensitive and oafish in our attempts to convert Jews. The Bible does say “He that winneth souls is wise (Proverbs 11:30b).” But the Bible is clear on this fact: we have to do it: see Romans 1:16. Anyone who suggests otherwise does not take Christianity seriously, and is demanding that Christians cease to do so as well. And this exposes the hypocrisy: the very same people who use the spiritual beliefs of the Jewish religion as a motive to try to get Christians to stop evangelizing Jews ignore or oppose the fact that our own spiritual beliefs compel us to proselytize Jews and everyone else! Now such people lie and claim that what they are after is universal respect for one another’s religion, which means no one attempting to convert anyone else, and calling that “freedom of religion.” No, freedom of religion means the freedom to practice your religion, and evangelism is an integral part of legitimate Christianity. Second, their own hypocrisy is exposed whenever these same people glorify the conversion of a Christian to Islam (especially if the Christian is black), and furthermore by their own attempts to use the media, popular entertainment, the education system, etc. to convert Christians to secularism and atheism! So it has NOTHING to do with respect for Judaism, and EVERYTHING to do with opposing Jesus Christ. Billy Graham knew this, and the fact that he did not take a stand WITH those people who were trying to spread the gospel and AGAINST those that were hindering the gospel shows which side he was on!

See link: Billy Graham Blasts Brethren

The Jewish Week/January 7, 2000

By Eric J. Greenberg

Rev. Billy Graham has questioned leaders of his own Southern Baptist denomination for targeting Jews and others for conversion.

“I normally defend my denomination. I’m loyal to it. But I have never targeted Muslims. I have never targeted Jews,” he said this week in an interview with Fox News.

The comments from the 80-year-old world-renowned evangelist [are] considered significant as the leadership of the Southern Baptist Convention-the nation’s largest Christian group with 15.8 million member-has recently increased efforts to proselytize Jews, Hindus and others. The move has sparked outrage from Jewish and non-Jewish religious leaders.

“I consider Graham’s comments very important because he is giving a reprimand and a corrective to the religious extremists who have taken control of the Southern Baptist Convention,” said Rabbi James Rudin, director of interreligious affairs for the American Jewish Committee.

Philip Abramowitz, director of the Task Force on Missionaries and Cults for the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, also welcomed Graham’s remarks. “It’s wonderful that he has made such a statement,” said Abramowitz, whose organization has been locked in a running quarrel with Dr. Paige Patterson, president of the Baptist Convention.

The JCRC charges Patterson with endorsing “deceptive tactics” used by Hebrew Christian groups to entice non-affiliated Jews to accept Jesus as God. In response, Patterson proposed a meeting between his leaders and Hebrew Christians and Jewish leaders. But JCRC rejected that, countering with a proposal for a one-on-one meeting between Patterson and JCRC president Gedale Horowitz.

In the latest development, Patterson rejected the counteroffer and called the matter closed. But the Southern Baptist leadership said it intends to send thousands of missionaries to Chicago next summer to try to convert Jews and Muslims, sparking an outcry from Chicago’s religious leaders.

Should Christians Repent Of Supporting Hollywood?

Posted by Job on August 17, 2007

From an interview with Ray Comfort on Crosswalk.com (see link).
Ray Comfort has taken on the challenge of witnessing to people on the street, and of debating atheists over the existence of God on national television. Now, in his latest project, the New Zealand native and co-host of The Way of the Master is taking on the entertainment industry.

Comfort’s latest book is titled Hollywood Be Thy Name: The Idol Makers (Bridge-Logos, 2007). He recently sat down with Crosswalk.com to discuss what’s going on in Hollywood and what Christians can do about it. . . .

One of the promos for Hollywood Be Thy Name said that “If people would apply what is in this book, it would revolutionize America.” How so?
First, we’ve got to understand that Hollywood has an agenda, and that agenda is anti-Christian in nature.

So from the year 1934 to the early ’50s, we got some good movies. I mean, real good, wholesome family movies. You got Ben-Hur, The Ten Commandments, It’s a Wonderful Life—all those great movies that are heartwarming and family oriented.

In the 1950s, Hollywood began to push the envelope through First Amendment freedom of speech laws. They said, “It’s our right to say what we want.” So, there were some innuendos and profanity in the ’50s that got kind of bad. In 1968 they threw out the Hays code—they outlawed it. They just said, “You’re outta here,” and they gave parental control.

Is that when the ratings system came in?
Yeah. That unlatched the door to profanity, adultery, unspeakable violence, and especially blasphemy. That’s when it really started, and they could say those words they’d been forbidden to say.

Now for some reason—no one seems to know why—but in the late ’60s crime rates in the U.S. tripled. Not only that, but for some reason during the late ’50s and the ’60s, a whole generation became rebellious, and turned against the Judeo-Christian ethic of their parents. No one knows why. But I think I know why, because I can see the power of the media.

I mean, why do we pay $30 million for a 30-second advertisement during the Super Bowl? Because people are influenced.

So what concerns me is this: in this little 13-minute DVD that we’re giving away [Hollywood and God is free with purchase of Hollywood Be Thy Name or can be viewed online at HollywoodandGod.com]—we want to get it in the hands of pastors—I ask Christians: “Do you go to R-rated movies?” And they say, “Yeah.” And most of them do.

“So whaddya think of the blasphemy in them?”

“Do you stay in the movie?”

“Eh, it depends on the story line.” It’s what they say. So okay, here’s a question for you: would you go to a movie that used your mother’s name as a cussword? And they go, “Never!” Well, would you go to a movie that used God’s name as a cussword, and they go, “Whoa. I never thought of it like that.”

And what we’ve got . . . in 2005, the box office take in the U.S. was $8 billion. Just under $7 billion came from churchgoing people in America. So who’s supporting these blasphemous movies that don’t blaspheme Mohammed? They don’t go near Mohammed. But continually they blaspheme the name of God, and of Jesus, and it’s a hard thing to say, but they say things like, “Jesus [expletive] Christ” throughout the movie.

Why?! What has that go to do with it? Why use someone’s name to express disgust? Why don’t they say “Mohammed?” Why don’t they say, “Buddha?” Why don’t they say, “George Bush?” Why use the name of Jesus?

It’s offensive to Christians. I can’t do anything about their adultery. People love it. Can’t do anything about their violence. But I can do something about their blasphemy. And here’s what I can do. . . .

We’ve started a website called HollywoodandGod.com, where Christians can go in, and they can find out which movies have just come out that use blasphemy. And in that website it’s got the e-mail address of the producers of that movie. So you can e-mail whatever production company has produced it and say, “You have used blasphemy in this movie; you’re not getting my money at the box office.”

Now, we’ve got incredible power as Christians. We showed the power to speak to Hollywood with The Passion of the Christ, over $700 million. There’s 177 million professing Christians in the United States. If even a percentage of those were prepared to say, “Okay. They cannot blaspheme the name of the God I profess to love, I will not support,” and later say: “Here’s an e-mail! We’re not goin’!”. . . they get enough e-mails, we’re talking millions and millions of dollars—that will speak to Hollywood. It will hit them where it hurts in the box office. So I think that’s how we can do it.

Now what’s wrong with a little blasphemy? It’s what comes with it. If your favorite movie star says, “I like driving this sort of car, I like wearing this sort of clothes, I eat this sort of food . . .” millions of fans follow them. Whatever they like, people tend to like. How they talk, we tend to talk. Why is there so much blasphemy? Why did 900 atheists go on YouTube earlier this year and blaspheme the name of God? Why did they do that? Whey didn’t they say “Mohammed?” Why didn’t they say “Buddha?” Why Christianity? It’s because Hollywood has an agenda. It’s made up of a nucleus of people whose life’s philosophy is anti-Christian.

We want to give away hundreds of copies of the DVD [Hollywood and God], we want pastors to screen it in their assemblies—I screened one in Chicago recently. Didn’t hardly have to say a word. I just stood up afterwards and said, “If you’re watching blasphemous movies, you need to repent and say, ‘God, I’m sorry.’” They just streamed forward. No music, no nothing – they just came forward and knelt. I think it can purify the Church, because it’s hypocrisy when you sit and listen to someone cuss the name of God, who you profess to love, because God has highly exalted the name of Jesus and given Him a name that’s above every name.

So when you say in the book that we have one rock with which to slay this giant, it’s that e-mail, and letting the studios know that you’re not going to tolerate blasphemy anymore?
Mmm-hmm. Just say, “We’re done with it. Hollywood, we’re gonna hit you in the dollars.” And that’s Hollywood’s language. If they knew that millions of dollars are not going to come in just because they use blasphemy, then they’ll stop using blasphemy. Every time we go to a movie and pay money, we’re saying, “Hollywood, bring it on. We like what you’re doing. We’re paying you to do this.”

So, I’m not saying boycott movies, I’m just saying, stop them doing this. This is turning a generation against Christ, and that should be grievous to every Christian. Especially when we’ve got Islam. If they should be angry at anything it should be Islam.

You would think.
Yeah, go to the Red Cross . . . the Salvation Army, soup kitchens worldwide, hospitals named St. Jude’s, St. John’s, St. Peter’s . . . they’re there because of Christianity. We’re here of benefit, we love our enemies, do good to those who . . . we don’t go around cutting people’s heads off or bombing buildings or any of that. So why do they hate Christianity? Why are they hating Christians? Because of Hollywood’s agenda. And they won’t do it—Mohammed isn’t written into any of those movies, he’s not in the script, they wouldn’t use his name, and why? They’re scared to do it. But they’re not scared to do it to Christianity.

What do you think it is that Hollywood doesn’t want us to know?
I would say their agenda . . . well, I mean . . . most people know that Hollywood is anti-Christian. But they don’t realize the negative repercussion that’s upon this nation. I mean, if we want God to bless our land, if we want God to give us blessing back on fruit of the womb, if we want God to bless our weather so we’re not having hurricanes lined up to where we run out of names to give them, or tornadoes that run around six or seven states . . . I mean, God’s in charge of the weather. One part of the country’s in drought, the other part people are drowning with so much water . . . I saw yesterday where thunderstorms are sending water but the water’s dissipating before it hits the ground . . . and a lot of the fires that are started are started by electricity and we know who’s in charge of the electricity department—it’s the lightning strikes that are starting fires . . . and cancer is just spreading on the land, it’s a plague, and if we want God’s blessing upon the land we’ve got to come to Him with a sincere heart and humility and ask Him to heal our land. And since judgment begins in the household of God, we’ve got to clean up our own house first.

So, I’m not saying boycott movies, I’m just saying, stop them doing this. This is turning a generation against Christ, and that should be grievous to every Christian. Especially when we’ve got Islam. If they should be angry at anything it should be Islam.

You would think.
Yeah, go to the Red Cross . . . the Salvation Army, soup kitchens worldwide, hospitals named St. Jude’s, St. John’s, St. Peter’s . . . they’re there because of Christianity. We’re here of benefit, we love our enemies, do good to those who . . . we don’t go around cutting people’s heads off or bombing buildings or any of that. So why do they hate Christianity? Why are they hating Christians? Because of Hollywood’s agenda. And they won’t do it—Mohammed isn’t written into any of those movies, he’s not in the script, they wouldn’t use his name, and why? They’re scared to do it. But they’re not scared to do it to Christianity.

Streaming Faith Dumps Reuben Armstrong!

Posted by Job on August 13, 2007

See this link: Calling Out Pulpit Pimps is Not Easy. Reuben Armstrong Dumped By Streaming-no-faith (aka streamingfaith.com). Now I had been putting devotionals by doctrinally sound pastors provided by Streaming Faith on this weblog, but no more!

Update: Read about this controversy in Reuben Armstrong’s own words below!

  1. Reuben Armstrong Says:
    August 17th, 2007 at 9:26 pm eBISHOP EDDIE LONG AND BISHOP T.D. JAKES “ATTACK” TALK SHOW HOST REUBEN ARMSTRONGDallas, TX (snakesinthepulpit.com) – It started after a radio interview in Atlanta, Georgia.Two of the four top Mega -Pastors that have been exposed in the book “Snakes in the Pulpit” are now THREATENING Talk Show Host Reuben Armstrong. Armstrong is the author of “Snakes in the Pulpit”, which is now available for purchase on his website at www.snakesinthepulpit.com
    Armstrong said it’s no surprise that the enemies are trying to attack him. “When you are dealing with so-called men of God, you expect the worst.”

    The book which exposes Eddie Long, Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar and TD Jakes on how they are using the Word of God to manipulate true believers for Fame and Fortune is scheduled to be released to the public August 29th, 2007. Armstrong said during a press conference with the media, “the Devil knows that by exposing these so-called men of God his party is about to stop.”

    Armstrong nor his staff went into details about the attack, but clearly state that “God is his Protector and no weapon form against him shall prosper.”

    The Reuben Armstrong Show was recently dumped by Streaming Faith, a Christian based site after exposing some of their beloved ministries. Armstrong said during a recent press conference, “It’s not about Streaming Faith nor about the employees of Streaming Faith. It’s about getting SOULS to Christ and that’s the main focus.”
    Armstrong’s show can now been seen on his website, www.reubenarmstrongshow.com and is broadcasted on TV in 8 states.

Pat Robertson Promoting The Chinese Government

Posted by Job on August 13, 2007

A few years back, Pat Robertson endorsed the Chinese policy of forced abortions. Just last year, Robertson spoke of how gracious the Chinese were for allowing CBN access to their airwaves, and actually claimed that God was dealing directly with the Chinese before He did so with the people of Abraham. Now, here is this article, where Robertson claims that revival is happening in China. Realize that China is doing all they can to keep the horrible crimes committed by their godless regime – including but not limited to its shameful persecution of Christians – out of the public eye while they use the Olympics as a Potemkin commercial for their godless statism. So, you had Rick Warren carrying water for Syria and North Korea, now Pat Robertson is doing the same for China. Further, Robertson supports the Bush administration DESPITE Bush’s dedicated support of China. Then again, since billionaire Pat Robertson has myriad business ventures overseas, it might be because of it. Please see this atrocious link.

Seven days a week, the machines at the Nanjing Amity Printing Company churn out copies of what some claim is one of China’s best-selling books – the Bible. Forty-three million Bibles have been printed legally in Communist China since 1987. Once a banned book, today some 3 million copies are printed and distributed each year across the country.

And this year, Chinese Christian leaders are hoping to print a special edition of the Bible to make available to the hundreds of thousands of athletes and visitors expected to attend next year’s Olympic Games. Dr. Cao Shengjie of China Christian council oversees the printing of Bibles in China. He said, “And so for this very important occasion, we hope we can print a special edition, maybe the four Gospels in English and Chinese, bilingual.”

Lui Bainian, a top leader of China’s officially sanctioned Catholic organization, wants to take it a step further and place these Bibles in some of the major hotels in Beijing. “I want our visitors to know that we have religious freedom here and this is a small step to meet their religious needs during the Olympic,” Bainian said. The Chinese capital has hundreds of hotels. One of the biggest in town, the Minzu hotel, is entertaining the idea of making the Bibles available to Olympic guests.

“We are doing our preparations and once we know where our guests are coming from, we will be ready to meet their spiritual needs,” Minzu Hotel General Manager Chen Guoyao said. The Beijing Olympic Committee is also getting religious. It plans to provide Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, and Muslim services. “I think the needs of various religious groups will be taken into consideration and as a matter of fact, for example, inside the Olympic Village, we are going to set up a religious service center,” Sun Weide, deputy director of communications for the Beijing Olympic committee said.

Shengjie says it is important for people outside of China, especially Christians, to know the real situation of Christianity in China. “I think the Olympics is a good opportunity because so many people will come from all over the world. And so they can come and see with their own eyes,” he said. And what they will see is a China that’s experiencing unprecedented religious fervor. When athletes and visitors arrive in Beijing next year for the Olympic Games, they will find a city and a nation in the middle of what some are calling a spiritual awakening.

Despite the government’s official doctrine of atheism, millions of Chinese are turning to religion. (The reason why is because communist governments have acknowledged that if they prohibit faith, it will only make the people even more zealous and willing to agititate against the regime. So, rather than making the same mistake that the Soviet Union and other Marxist regimes did, statist regimes are now co – opting religion, knowing that doing so will actually increase their power. Vladimir Putin, for instance, is using the Russian Orthodox Church for his own ends, including keeping the Through The Bible radio ministry off Russian airwaves.)

And as Pat Robertson says, “It’s not China our enemy, it’s China our friend.”  Watch the video above for the complete report followed by Robertson’s prayer for China. (Please note, the bold and the italics appear in the original article: I DID NOT ADD IT!)

“People now feel more freer, more open to express their religious convictions,” said Tong Shijun, professor of philosophy at East China Normal University. (That is the ticket, make them THINK that they have more freedoms so that they will not oppose the regime, while the state is still in control through their regulation of religious life.)Tong Shijun teaches at a prominent university in Shanghai. He’s just completed the first major survey on religious beliefs in China. And according to his findings, 31.4 percent of those surveyed said they were religious – putting the number of believers in China at about 300 million.

“The increase of the number and the increase of the percentage was quiet large,” Shijun said. “Quite dramatic.” Christianity is also growing fast. Twelve percent, or 40 million people, described themselves in the poll as followers of Christianity, much higher than official figures given by the Chinese government. (The reason why is that attending any church outside of the churches regulated by the Chinese government is ILLEGAL. The Chinese government even appoints Catholic bishops to peddle their propaganda in their nation, similar to how the Roman government used to appoint Sadducees as high priests during the time of Jesus Christ.)

What is fueling these conversions? Chinese experts say that a growing number of people are turning to religion to better cope with the country’s rapid social and economic changes. (And like all satanic state churches, China is just fine with people becoming Christian for any reason OTHER than to accept and spread the gospel, because that is what Satan desires. Since Pat Robertson is obviously fine with this too, it is clear whose side on the war between Jesus Christ and Satan he is on.)

Molly Fung works in Beijing’s financial district. She recently started going to church. She said she wanted God to give her strength to deal with the pressures of life. “I think that when I am stronger, I can help others, my friends and my family and tell them how to deal with the pressures,” she said. (Helping people make Jesus Christ their personal savior so that they can be freed from sin and death and go to heaven? Apparently that is not part of the agenda.) He Hong is an economics student in Shanghai who recently spent an afternoon at a local Christian bookstore. “Today in our country, more and more people, especially the young people have a yearning for spirituality” Hong, a Shanghai university student, explained. “So many of my friends feel empty in their hearts. We feel so much pressure to get a job, have a better education.”According to Shengjie, so many of them are turning up at church looking for answers. (And the Chinese government says “If false Christianity motivates you to work harder for longer hours for less pay, then we’re fine with that. And since these same Chinese “Christians” would obviously use their money to support Pat Robertson’s financial empire, he is fine with it too. And have you noticed that where Robertson used to be fundamentalist his doctrine has been trending more and more towards prosperity lately?)

“People can easily think that to have a better living and to earn more money is the goal of life but the church, we will tell people that the man does not live by bread alone, we need the Word of God,” Shengjie said.

Buddhism, Taoism, and other religions are also experiencing growth. Shijun believes that the government is starting to recognize the role religion could play in society.

“In the last couple of decades the situation is that religious life is recognized to have a positive role in society, generally speaking, as long as these religious groups abide by the national and local laws,” he said.

Strict limitations on religion remain, however. For example, China only recognizes government registered churches and considers unregistered house churches illegal.  (The only reference to the actual situation in China, and they do their best to A) bury it and B) portray it in the best possible context, a far cry from how Robertson treats the issue of Christian persecution in nations where he does not have substantial business dealings with the governments.)

Still Chinese Christian leaders hope next year’s Olympic Games will be an opportunity to showcase China’s diverse and growing religious tapestry. (If by that you mean keep the U.N. and western financial interests from threatening boycotts and sanctions over their persecution of legitimate religious groups rather than state – controlled ones, sure that is what they want, and Pat Robertson is helping.) “Our expectation is to have more friendship and fellowship,” Shengjie said.

Pat Robertson’s CBN empire may produce some decent children’s entertainment now and then – yes Superbook and The Flying House are great, although their newer stuff, while having better production values, are very thin theologically – but now that his business and political interests are dictating his theological positions, it is time to put him in the false preacher category. I wonder if these Sun Myung Moon Council On Foreign Relations/Center For National Policy hooks that are into Robertson and so many of these other leading Christian evangelists are far deeper than we previously thought. And oh look … Ralph Reed lobbies for China also! Christians, we must stay true to the Bible, and that means opposing these false preachers and liars on the religious right as well as those in the religious left.

People That Protest The Iraq War But Not Abortion Are Hypocrites

Posted by Job on August 3, 2007

If you wish to subscribe to Pastor Bill Keller’s devotionals click here: www.liveprayer.com/signup.cfm

(James 2:17)

***MINNESOTA BRIDGE TRAGEDY!   Please join me in prayer for those families
who lost loved ones in the I-35 bridge collapse Wednesday in Minneapolis/St.
Paul.  We are also praying for those who were injured to fully recover.  Our
thoughts and prayers are with our friends in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area
as they recover from this horrible event.

(Personal note: I vehemently disagree with Bill Keller’s general support of the Iraq War. However, I agree with even more stridently that those who protest the Iraq War while supporting or remaining silent on abortion commit the sin of hypocrisy, and that goes triple for professed Christians.)

***OVER 1,000 BABIES WE KNOW OF ARE ALIVE TODAY BECAUSE OF THIS VIDEO!!! 

In the 12 months since I put a 55 second video clip of an actual abortion being
performed on the Liveprayer.com homepage, we have received emails from over
1.000 women who were planning on killing their babies, but after watching
that video clip realized they couldn’t do it and chose to let their babies LIVE!
Praise God!  Please, get anyone you know who is even thinking of an abortion
to go watch this video before they make that horrible mistake they will deal
with for the rest of their lives.   http://www.liveprayer.com/abortion.cfm

Why are the people who are protesting the war in Iraq, upset over those who
are being killed, the same people who fight so we can keep slaughtering over
4,000 innocent babies in this nation EVERY DAY???  I find it ironic those
who wax eloquently on the horrors of those who have been killed in the war
we are waging against those who want to see us wiped off the face of the
planet, are the very same people who actively protest and fight to keep the
practice of infanticide legal in this nation.  Where is their outrage over
the fact that every 24 hours, another 4,000 innocent babies are slaughtered
in this nation??

What can I do?  In dealing with the abortion issue often, helping you to
understand the reality of this blight on our nation both politically and
spiritually, many people who email me ask, “What can I do?”  Over 150 years
ago our nation legally practiced another abomination to God, slavery.  It
was the people of God, those who knew Christ as their Savior who ultimately
forced the abolition of this gross wickedness of one man to another.  It was
men and women of God who refused to sit back and watch unbridled sin exist
despite the fact that it was “legal.”  So it will be with abortion as men
and women of faith properly ask the question, “What can I do?”

In the Book of James, God tells us that “faith without works is dead.” Since
this was written to the church, people who were already saved, it in NO WAY
implies that works will save you.  Ephesians 2:8,9 and many other passages
clearly refute that notion.  What that passage is saying however, is that
once you are saved your faith requires action.  If you are truly saved, you
understand that you have a God-given plan and purpose for your life that
must be fulfilled.  You understand that your life is no longer your own,
that it belongs to Christ.  Your life literally becomes an instrument in the
hands of God to fulfill His Divine plan and purpose.  To be used by God our
Creator is the greatest use of our days on this earth there can be.

While we all have been called to serve God in different ways, we are all
part of the same Body.  We may have different jobs to perform but we are all
on the same team.  Being part of the Body of Christ also carries some shared
responsibilities.  We are all ambassadors of Christ and His representatives
at all times.  We all are called to share our faith with the hurting and
lost, to give people a “reason for the hope we have.”  We all accept the
Absolute Truth and authority of God’s Word.  Subsequently, we can’t simply
sit back and see sin abound and do nothing.  The existence of sin requires
and DEMANDS action on the part of the child of God.

So when confronted with the sin of abortion, what should that action be?
First, prayer.  PRAYER CHANGES THINGS!  I can only imagine the number of
prayers that went up every day during the time slavery was legal in this
nation, that this inhumane practice would end.  Don’t ever underestimate the
power of prayer and EVERY child of God must pray daily for this nation to
get out of the business of killing babies.

Second, communicate to others the Truth of God’s Word.  It is God Himself
who calls abortion murder.  Those who know Christ cannot sit back and be
silent while people support this sin.  Wherever the discussion of abortion
exists, be it in your home with family members, at work or school, out with
friends, or in the public square, a child of God MUST speak out for
righteousness and call this sin what it is…MURDER!

Third, evangelism.  Some of you may be confused how evangelism has anything
to do with the abortion issue, but it is THE answer to this and every other
issue.  You see, when a person is saved, the Bible says they become a “new
creature in Christ.”  They literally are a new creation and the “old things
pass away.”  When a person is saved they get a new heart, they get new
desires, they start to live their life in obedience to God instead of in
rebellion to Him.  The ultimate answer to the abortion issue is to get
people saved since they would no longer make the choice to kill their baby
and the abortion mills would close down due to a lack of business.

AGAIN, EVERY PERSON THAT KNOWS JESUS HAS THE MANDATE FROM OUR LORD TO SHARE
THE HOPE AND LOVE WE HAVE IN CHRIST WITH THE LOST.  THIS IS NOT AN OPTION,
IT IS A COMMANDMENT!

I love you and care about you so much.  I know from the outpouring of emails I receive on this issue, many people are frustrated and feel helpless.  Let me remind you, as a child of God we have the greatest power there is, the power of the Holy Sprit indwelling within us.  The Bible proclaims that
NOTHING is impossible with God.  That includes seeing the sin of abortion being performed daily with the full blessings and protection of our Federal Government being wiped out!

Do you realize that less than 4,000 people were killed on 9/11.  The United States properly responded, spending billions to defeat those who would seek to destroy our nation and kill each one of us if they were given the opportunity.  However, more than that number of innocent babies are slaughtered DAILY!  It is clear that the politicians have no guts to stop this practice of legalized infanticide, just like they had no guts to stop the evils of slavery.  It was the people of God who brought slavery to an
end and it will have to be the people of God to bring abortion to an end!

Every man, woman, and child that knows Christ as their Savior can pray, can communicate the Truth of God’s Word that abortion is murder, and can help bring the lost to faith in Christ.  Remember, nothing you do for the Lord is in vain.  If just these things were being done by those who have a personal relationship with Jesus, you would see a major shift on this issue overnight.  In addition, God will raise up key men and women to take a leadership position in carrying out whatever His ultimate plan is to see victory over the sin of abortion.

I will be praying for you today.  Praying that you will realize you DO make a difference.  Just like no one person got this nation to abolish the sin of slavery, it will not be one person to get this nation to abolish the sin of abortion.  It is going to take all of those who know the Lord to make this
happen.  May we rise up in the power of Almighty God and take a stand for righteousness as we say to this lost world, no more killing babies.  We either take action against this sin or we are no better than those who support it.  You ask the question, “What can I do?”  Now I ask you the question, ” What WILL you do?”

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller

“Celebration of a New Baptist Covenant” Allows Homosexual Participation!

Posted by Job on July 25, 2007

Two pro-gay national Baptist organizations have been denied official participation in an upcoming milestone gathering focused on Baptist unity. 

The Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists (AWAB) and the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America, both of which openly affirm gays and lesbians in the life of the national bodies, were told they cannot participate as an organization in the “Celebration of a New Baptist Covenant” in January 2008. Members of the two bodies, however, can participate as individuals.

Alan Stanford, general secretary of the North American Baptist Fellowship (NABF) – the umbrella group organizing the January meeting – explained that this is not a rejection of either the organization or the people in those organizations, he wrote in an e-mail last week to leaders of the two groups, according to the Associated Baptist Press.

Rather, “it is a recognition that we can not hold together the large coalition of Baptists needed to create a new Baptist voice in North America and address the issue of sexual orientation at the same time. We ask for your forbearance and understanding,” he wrote.

The New Baptist Covenant is an effort spearheaded by former president Jimmy Carter and Bill Underwood, president of Mercer University in Atlanta, to counter the “negative” Baptist image presented in the media and to demonstrate Baptist unity around social causes such as poverty and AIDS as well as evangelism. Carter has expressed concern that the most common opinion about Baptist is that they cannot get along.

Those participating in the new covenant, which may total some 20,000 Baptists from throughout the United States and Canada, will be gathering around common causes and focusing on what they agree on. Baptists within the NABF, however, have not reached an agreement on the issue of sexual orientation and to officially involve the two pro-gay Baptist groups might mean changing the already agreed-upon agenda of the new covenant.

“[W]hile everyone thinks that [sexuality] is a topic of grave concern – it is a topic that needs lots of discussion and prayer – it was not a part of the stated agenda from the beginning,” said Stanford, according to the ABP. “And so I think a lot of the North American [Baptist] leaders thought that his would be changing the agreed-upon terms.”

Ken Pennings, executive director of the AWAB, argued, “Here we are at a critical juncture when Baptists of all stripes are coming together to take a strong stand for justice for all of God’s children, and the very people in American society being scapegoated and marginalized the most … are not going to be invited to participate.”

The AWAB and the Baptist Peace Fellowship had applied for membership in the North American Baptist Fellowship and asked to be included as sponsors of the upcoming pan-Baptist gathering, according to Stanford. The NABF executive committee denied their membership which excludes them from being official sponsors of the new covenant.

“This really is more like the Old Covenant than the New Covenant,” Pennings said, according to ABP. “Why would we want to participate in this? There’s nothing new about this; it’s the same old exclusion.”

However, Stanford stressed to The Christian Post, “What we’re going to focus on are things we’re going to agree on.”

Meanwhile, the more conservative Southern Baptist Convention – the largest Protestant denomination in the nation – has been invited to join the new effort. But the SBC elected not to participate, as Stanford stated.

Southern Baptist president Frank Page and some SBC leaders have rejected the New Baptist Covenant, showing concerns that the effort has political overtones, arguing that the date of the gathering is during the presidential election year and includes liberal speakers such as former president Bill Clinton, former vice president Al Gore, and Children’s Defense Fund founder Marian Wright Edelman.

Nevertheless, the Celebration of the New Baptist Covenant is seen as a bringing a vast diversity of Baptists together, including every major African American Baptist denomination.
