With more and more professing Christian clergy ‘coming out’ as homosexual in the United Methodist denomination, what does this say about the state of their church? Can Christians who truly love the Lord Jesus Christ have different views on issues such as homosexuality, and on the subject of ‘female pastors’? What should you do if your church ordains female preachers and allows homosexuality to remain unchallenged within its communion?
How does the recent statement made by Brian Houston compare with the statements made by homosexual couple and Hillsong NYC Church members Josh Canfield and Reed Kelly? Does Brian Houston clear up yet another controversy surrounding the group or does it leave more unanswered questions? Michael Brown’s response supporting Hillsong and the evidence against Hillsong’s claims will be examined and critiqued. Should we blindly trust church leaders without looking at the evidence as Michael Brown has in a recent article? These and other related issues will be looked at on this week’s show.
How should we Biblically respond to the recent Planned Parenthood story? What arguments do some liberals use to support gay ‘marriage’? How do liberals refute themselves? What is the meaning of Matthew 7 when Jesus said to ‘judge not’ and when Jesus said in John 8 ‘He who is without sin can cast the first stone’?
What does the Bible tell us about Churches that embrace that which is an abomination to the Lord? What happens to Christian’s rights when homosexuals get theirs? Matthew Vines, a promoter of gay ‘Christianity’, recently spoke at Google on how he is trying to convince the church to change on homosexuality. What does it tell us about Matthew Vines and churches that embrace his views?
“The purest Churches under heaven are subject both to mixture and error: (k) and some have so degenerated, as to become no Churches of Christ, but synagogues of Satan.(l) Nevertheless, there shall be always a Church on earth, to worship God according to His will.(m) (k) I Cor. 13:12; Rev. 2 and 3; Matt. 13:24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 47. (l) Rev. 18:2; Rom. 11:18, 19, 20, 21, 22. (m) Matt. 16:18; Ps. 72:17; Ps. 102:28; Matt. 28:19, 20.” –The Westminster Confession of Faith, Chapter 25:5
The Synagogue of Satan (Revelation 2:9)
In a recent sermon called ‘AIDS: the Judgement of God’ Steven L. Anderson made the headlines once again claiming that Homosexuals should be killed and that AIDS was a Judgement of God. However something that has been missed by the media was that Anderson believes that Homosexuals cannot ever come to Christ. He sees them as being beyond the possibility of salvation and therefore he will not allow a homosexual into his church to hear the gospel. What does the Bible teach on these things?
