The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 12:25-26 (NKJV Strong’s) “…Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?”
The reason why I’m using this text is because in many of our houses of worship, sexual immorality is ever present. And we shouldn’t fool ourselves. When the catholics have been hit with sexual immorality lawsuits, which threatens, not only their existence, but their claim to morality, it’s clear that you have to look at the root of their organization.
The whole purpose of the protestant movement was to destroy the strangle hold of the monopoly of Biblical doctrine.
Martin Luther, John Wycliff, and William Tyndale, among so many other courageous persons, were responsible for the systematical dissolution of the rule of catholicism on the lives of people.
The best way to accomplish this was to make a duly English translated copy of the Bible from Hebrew and Greek, available to each person as opposed to depending upon a “priest” to give the “homily.”
God be praised.
For many of our readers, we’re aware that catholics read our blogs, and may object. You’re entitled to object, but do some due diligence and do a side by side comparison of doctrines.
Many will argue that they’re just as Christian as any other Christian denomination. Just do a simple doctrinal comparison between catholicism and other protestant denominations and you will see a conclusively stark contrast.
My point is that it’s not just a “catholic thing.”
In ALMOST every denomination and non denominations, there’s elements of QUESTIONABLE man made doctrines intertwined in the truth of the Scriptures.
Usually, it’s a dead giveaway that deception is the intent.
Even worse, is that we turn a blind eye to certain practices occurring in our houses of worship that we know is against true Biblical teaching.
And in many policy protocols, denominational teaching should absolutely mirror Biblical teaching, but in practice, some will either come up with a form of godliness in their policies, or make crude exceptions.
Such is the case here.
In catholic schools, it’s certain that SOME OF the people they employ are people that practice lawlessness in violation of true Biblical teachings. We generally turn a blind eye to avoid lawsuits that would follow should organizations come to their senses.
Even in Black Baptist churches, and other places where Blacks worship, pastors, deacons, worship leaders, music ministers, and others engage in Secret Sexual Sins while performing their duties.
In particular, hiring homosexual music ministers, choir masters, and organists.
For decades, we’ve ignored holiness in all that we do just to have “gifted,” talented singers, musicians, choir masters, and organists.
But to have them perform in houses of worship, we intentionally disobey the holy commandment of the Lord.
We dare disrespect the Lord than to disrespect the practitioners of all vile sexual sins.
We dare honor man more than we ought to honor God.
We make exceptions, sweep their sins under a carpet instead of commanding them to repent, and get their sins washed away forever by the blood, demanding that they live holy lives in obedience to the Scriptures.
Because employment doesn’t last forever.
But dying in your sins is forever.
While the firing of a catholic teacher that practices the vile sin of homosexuality is truly commendable, if a tree is rotten at the core, bad fruit will continue to manifest.
It’s incumbent upon all that call on the name of the Lord to “…depart from iniquity…”
We can’t have iniquity in the house of worship and righteousness present at the same time. Just like you never see the dominance of the moon dominate the dominance of the sun.
The Bible says that the moon rules the night in the book of Genesis, but even the moon is dependent upon the sun because the moon reflects the dominate light of the sun. The moon is powerless to emit any light of its own.
Light is never dominated by darkness.
Such much be the same with our houses of worship.
Righteousness cannot live with unrighteousness (see 2 Corinthians 6:14-18).
We know that a lawsuit may follow, but for now, it’s an example to all that name the name of Christ.
It’s time to put out of our houses of worship those that refuse to repent, and put out those that insist on the practice of lawlessness while pretending to be a practitioner of righteousness. It’s not to say that this catholic teacher that practices the vile sin of homosexuality was pretending, but sadly, we know of a lot of “gay christians.”
You can’t be gay and be a Christian.
You’re one or the other. Not both. Just like you can’t be an adulterer Christian. A thief Christian. A lying Christian. A fornicating Christian, etcetera.
Now we don’t know if this catholic teacher was offered a chance to repent and conform to their non tolerance of homosexual policy.
But as far as protestant denominations are concerned, the heart of the Father is to offer repentance from dead works, and faith towards the Lord. If people refuse to repent, they could no longer openly, or covertly practice sin and be employed in a house of worship.
It’s incumbent upon church employers to ensure that a non tolerant of practicing sexual lawlessness policy is articulated and maintained. And that a very deliberate vetting of prospectus employees take place.
Some will argue that it’s discriminatory.
The Bible tells us that a “little leaven leavens the whole lump.”
Just like when the acting defense secretary had to resign because years ago, he was involved in a violent domestic dispute.
Just like Judge Kavanaugh.
Vetting is very important and the houses of worship need to do the same.
