Sexual Abuse: It Won’t Be The Last

Back in 2009, when the Lord almost exposed my porn habit, I’ve repented from the sin of lusting after the flesh. It was the mercy of God that prevented my life from being snatched by God in sin.

Then I did a study on why I did what I’ve done. After this study, the Lord constantly exposed preacher after preacher.

Then I looked, and understood that “It won’t be the last.”

We don’t take pleasure in the exposure of a church or denomination, but when the fear of the Lord is missing, it’s very easy to allow and excuse sin.

Ecclesiastes 8:11-13 (NKJV) “Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

Though a sinner does evil a hundred times, and his days are prolonged, yet I surely know that it will be well with those who fear God, who fear before Him. But it will not be well with the wicked; nor will he prolong his days, which are as a shadow, because he does not fear before God.”

1 Corinthians 10:12 (NKJV) “Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.”

The Southern Baptist Church on paper, looked like a stellar denomination. Recently it fought against CRT (critical race theory), homosexuality, abortion, and other issues.

It’s the largest Protestant denomination with 14 million members.

But like the Catholics, the Jehovah’s Witness, and certain non denominational Word of Faith places, sexual scandals emerged. Among their highest leaders, they’ve kept sexual abuse a secret……………….for 20 plus years.

You think that they Lord would keep it a secret?

If you take a look at The Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, 5 of 7 churches had issues. The church at Thyatira. A pastor allowed a female to teach sexual immorality. She called herself a prophetess. The Lord Jesus called her Jezebel.

In the OT, Jezebel from the Sidonians, was married to Ahab.

1 Kings 16:30-31 (NKJV) “Now Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD, more than all who were before him. And it came to pass, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took as wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians; and he went and served Baal and worshiped him.”

If you read about the history of Ethbaal, he took power by violence. He killed his rival and assumed power. She learned her lesson well from her father that to keep power, you use death and sexual immorality.

1 Kings 18:17-19 (NKJV)

Then it happened, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said to him, “Is that you, O troubler of Israel?” And he answered, “I have not troubled Israel, but you and your father’s house have, in that you have forsaken the commandments of the LORD and have followed the Baals. Now therefore, send and gather all Israel to me on Mount Carmel, the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal, and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”

Who is Asherah?

Glad you’ve asked.

Asherah is a Canaanite goddess.

According to Smith’s Bible Dictionary, “Asherah- means “straight.” Idol of the Phoenician goddess (2 Kings 21:7; 23:6). Grove in the KJV. Perhaps a head or bust on a straight pillar.”

Make no mistake about it that almost anytime you deal with goddesses, sexual immorality is very close, if not, at the top of the list when it comes to idol worship.

I’ve often wondered what made idol worship so attractive?

Why would I offer sacrifice to a god or goddess?

There has to be an incentive. An attractive incentive.

2 Kings 23:4-7 (NKJV)

“And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, the priests of the second order, and the doorkeepers, to bring out of the temple of the LORD all the articles that were made for Baal, for Asherah, and for all the host of heaven; and he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel.

Then he removed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense on the high places in the cities of Judah and in the places all around Jerusalem, and those who burned incense to Baal, to the sun, to the moon, to the constellations, and to all the host of heaven.

And he brought out the wooden image from the house of the LORD, to the Brook Kidron outside Jerusalem, burned it at the Brook Kidron and ground it to ashes, and threw its ashes on the graves of the common people.

Then he tore down the ritual booths of the perverted persons that were in the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the wooden image.”

Now when you see Asherah again in another portion of Scripture, the rule is, you let Scripture interpret Scripture.

In this passage, Josiah is the king that is bringing reform to the nation of Israel. It was Josiah that tore down everything that wasn’t of the Lord.

But did you take note of the “booths?’

We all know that all you have to do is put two and two together. In this case, homosexuals were in these “booths.”

Back in the day, in NYC, on 42 Street and in other areas around it, there would be “booths.” Peep shows. All sorts of sexual immorality would be in these places.

But notice that in the Scripture, women would weave hangings for “wooden image.” Now you’re left up to imagine what these wooden images were.

Imagine no further. They were of a graphic sexual nature. Phallic symbol.

The reason I’m bringing these Scriptures to light is to show the interconnectedness of sexual immorality. That even in the house of worship, there is no ‘worship that’s in “spirit and in truth.”

Hidden in these places is the depths of sexual immorality.

Three things are happening.

ONE………. God is exposing the earth with the light of truth.

Luke 12:2 (NKJV) “For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.”

Hebrews 4:13 (NKJV) “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.”

Romans 14:10-12 (NKJV) “But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written:
“As I live, says the LORD,
Every knee shall bow to Me,
And every tongue shall confess to God.”

“So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.”

Our hidden secrets will be exposed.

Romans 2:12-16 (NKJV) “For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law (for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God,

but the doers of the law will be justified; for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts,

their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them) in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.”

Psalms 90:7-8 (NKJV) “For we have been consumed by Your anger,
And by Your wrath we are terrified.
You have set our iniquities before You,
Our secret sins in the light of Your countenance.”

So what are we to do?

Ephesians 5:8-14 (NKJV) “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.

But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.

Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”

TWO………He’s cleansing His church.

Ephesians 5:26-27 (NKJV) “…that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.”

The cleansing is happening before our eyes.

THREE………The tares are exposed among the wheat.

Matthew 13:24-30 (NKJV) “Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared.

So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’

The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers,

“First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”‘”

Why is this happening?

The Lord is coming soon.

Finally, Matthew 7:21-23 (NKJV) “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’

And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

It’s not just the SBC. The Lord is searching everything. Remember, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of those whose hearts are loyal to Him.”

Revelation 22:12-15 (NKJV) “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.”

Sexual Immorality, When A Pastor Crosses The Line (pt. 1).

The qualifications of a bishop (overseer, presbyter, elder, pastor) are clear.

1 Timothy 3:1-7 (NKJV) This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach;

not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous; one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?);

not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

Why do pastors cross the line?

Lust in the heart.

James 1:14-15 is clear.

James 1:14-15 (NKJV) “But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

Within the hearts is a sexual desire. I said hearts.

The male and the female.

Immoral women have a sexual desire to be touched and they become “passive hunters.” Provocatively dressed, they’re prepared to entice a “powerful” speaker.

At the same time, the male is an “active hunter.” They seek out a woman for a sexual conquest.

When they cross at an intersection, all it takes is for a natural attraction encounter, and the two, unless the pastor is “temperate,” they will connect.

The sexually immoral pastor will look for reasons to engage in adultery if they’re married, or if they’re single, they will will look for reasons to engage in fornication. The same applies to bisexuals or homosexuality.

Crossing at the intersection is deliberate.

It’s intended to get their attention. Once their attention is gained, the planning is in its first stage. This is where one sizes up and get intelligence on their vulnerabilities and play them to their advantage.

It goes without saying that most conquests are demonically inspired.

We see this with Samson and Delilah. Potiphar’s wife and Joseph. Ahab and Jezebel. Jezebel in the book of Revelation.

Whenever there’s a personality powerful person, the attraction is used against them. Even more prevalent, is when a holy man of God is used mightily by God, it will not take long for an “ASSIGNMENT” from satan to be initiated.

So a male pastor, married or single, must institute safe guards, guardrails, and self discipline to remain established in the Lord in personal holiness to avoid sexual immorality.

Proverbs 31:1-3 (NKJV) “The words of King Lemuel, the utterance which his mother taught him:
What, my son?
And what, son of my womb?
And what, son of my vows?
Do not give your strength to women,
Nor your ways to that which destroys kings.”

The one place where men give their strength to women is in the bedroom.

The bedroom is the place where the heart of men is captured. His power is used against him.

Seduction unlocks the heart, which unleashes his power. He will say “yes” to almost everything when you give him sex.

Every man that yielded their strength to women were destroyed.

Proverbs 7:25-27 (NKJV) “Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways,
Do not stray into her paths;
For she has cast down many wounded,
And all who were slain by her were strong men.
Her house is the way to hell,
Descending to the chambers of death.”

Men seldom see the set up. Blinded by a desire to be bolstered in front of people. Blinded by flattery, he doesn’t see that the beginning stages of being played are in place.

We all want to be nice to people, especially women, but if you’re not watching and praying, it’s just a matter of time before the trap closes.

Being hospitable must never turn into a sexual conquest. Pastors should be nice to people, but the safe guards, guardrails, self disciplines must remain in place.

Pastors can be approachable and friendly, but you must never allow yourself to sexually cross the line.

A woman’s beauty is their world, but it could be a tool to get into your heart.

A woman’s genuine vulnerabilities could also be taken advantage by a male pastor that turns into a predator/wanderer. Women that confide in a male pastor could be taken advantage.

It’s not all a woman’s fault, unless, on her part, the intent to deceive is present.

She could appear with a seemingly legitimate vulnerability, but she could also use it as a tool to get to the heart of a pastor.

With false preachers and pastors, the whole intent of their “ministries” is to exercise such influence that unsuspecting women will give themselves to a predator, and come under a man’s personality and be used sexually.

That’s why it’s important for women to have guardrails, safe guards and discipline themselves. When you hear or see something that’s trying to attract you to them, have enough sense to disconnect and run from that place.

A married man that was an apologist was attracted to a married woman. She was attracted to his ability to explain the Scriptures. He appeared legitimate, with no noticeable alarms with the use of Scripture.

He rightfully divided the Scriptures. He was the rave of the modern Christian world.

With this woman, she connected with him on the internet. It wouldn’t be long before he would spring the trap. She started to see something and she broke off. She was wise to explain it to her husband. This apologist crossed the line and accused her of sending sexually explicit photos, which was a lie to cover up what he was doing.

He was sexually setting her up.

His world renown organization declared him as a man of integrity and that he would never cross the line.

While these allegations were vigorously defended, pictures emerged of a sullen looking individual. He was diagnosed and was dying of cancer. After his death, more was uncovered and his impeccable, blameless reputation as a “man of integrity” was destroyed.

While he was alive, they’ve surrounded his life like an army would with wagons.

As an unbiased investigation ensued, and after his death, the real person emerged.

His secondary sexual lifestyle became plain for all to see. The organization made a terrible mistake in surrounding him.

After the allegations became substantiated, their worst fears came to light.

He was a sexual predator.

It would only be after his passing that the truth emerged.

It’s concluded that his body was delivered to satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit would be saved (see 1 Corinthians 5:1-5).

Women have a duty to remain pure before the Lord as well as the pastor.

Neither one, for the sake of His name, should cross the line.

Our Worst Fears: Ravi Zacharias

1 Timothy 4:12 (NKJV Strong’s)

“Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”

Ravi Zacharias was probably one of the most prolific apologists of our times. He would say some tremendous things that really made you pay attention to see if you know your Bible as you should.

We were sadden to hear that Ravi Zacharias had passed away on May 19, 2020.

He was loved and adored for his ability, by the Holy Spirit, to exegete the Word and expound on passages of Scripture that many believers had problems understanding.

In just few sentences with insight from the Holy Spirit, passages of Scripture would unfold and come alive like turning on a light switch. His wisdom over the years have help many believers understand their faith in the Lord, and how to present a vigorous defense of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

He is missed.

When I heard of the allegations of sexual immorality of Ravi, I discounted it when he accused his accusers of extortion. It’s instinct because of the accuser of the brethren. So like many believers we’ve taken what Ravi said as face value because of his impeccable integrity. When a man or woman has unquestioned integrity, Paul calls it “blameless.”

In fact, when the world can’t find or assign blame on you, it gives them a good indication that their life must measure up. Billy Graham had that kind of integrity to abstain from the minefield of sexual immorality.

There’s no question that the world tried to trip Billy Graham up but because he put safeguards in place, blame on sexual matters never found a place. Obviously, there’s other areas where Billy Graham was vulnerable and suffered for it, like his admission on the Nixon tapes about Jews, and other things.

But in this area of sexual immorality, Billy Graham is blameless.

After Ravi shared his defense, I thought that it settled the account. Then after he had passed away of cancer, it shocked the Christian world.

Later we’ve learned of a NDA, which is a Non Disclosure Agreement.

Much like what Harvey Weinstein made all his women he had sex with would do to protect Weinstein’s reputation and protect him from lawsuits.

It caught up with Harvey and he’s currently serving a prison sentence.

When ministers of the gospel engage in adultery or other sexually inappropriate behavior, even when it’s online solicitation, private chat rooms, and rendezvous at far or near hotels, because of their international reputation, such accusations is immediately challenged until the parties no longer agree to remain silent.

Since Ravi Zacharias died of cancer, the details are now coming out.

Luke 12:2-3 (NKJV Strong’s)

“For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops.”

A man of God must remain above reproach because when the accusations start to come, your integrity is all that’s left. Once you lose integrity you lack credibility. Once you lose credibility, you’re disqualified.

1 Corinthians 9:25-27 (NKJV Strong’s)

“And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty.

Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.”

Once you’re disqualified, there’s very little that one could do.

Many ministers, after they’ve sinned against the Lord and are exposed, they’ve lost their credibility and fight vigorously to regain it.

When I was in the world of pornography, the Lord warned me over and over again, until I exposed myself. I rationalized that if the Lord exposed me like He did David, I would be disqualified.

So I penned the book Secret Sexual Sins. It wasn’t as good as it could have been but I penned another book Secret Sexual Sins II, MOAB. It’s in this book that I reveal more about the sexual immorality infiltration of local churches.

One person put it powerfully, “If you expose yourself, you keep your job. If God exposes you, you lose your job.”

So in blogs, and podcasts, I began to put out my involvement in the vile sin of pornography and masturbation. Usually, and not with everyone, sexual addiction will take you to places that you thought you wouldn’t go. Keep you longer than you thought, and make you pay more than you’re willing to pay.

Millions of men and women are caught in porn and self gratification.

This isn’t to say that Ravi was a sexual addict. It’s highly unlikely. Paul admonished Timothy to remain pure, to be an example of purity before the people

You can’t tell people to be pure if you’re not pure.

As we reach the end of our journey, we want to be genuine and legit. We want to maintain our integrity and credibility. We want people to say at the conclusion of our lives that this man or woman of God maintained his or her integrity and is blameless.

In 1 Thessalonians 5:23 (NKJV Strong’s) Paul said….“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Ravi died of cancer.

Without much thought, I put two and two together.

Paul said “If we would judge ourselves we would not be judged.”

Many will say that Ravi wasn’t judged, but are you 100% sure?

It’s instinctive to push a narrative to save the personal reputation of people, especially when your ministry or business is involved in millions of dollars. And when you stand in front of people, they have a certain expectation of you.

When you lose your hard earned reputation, when people walk, money walks with them.

They look at your integrity, they believe you, and they put stock in your credibility. Once this is attacked, nothing but an ironclad defense will salvage it. The NDA provided that deniability that preserved some measure of his reputation.

As long as the parties remain silent, and pay a little money, the alleged incident remains hidden. And even if you violate that NDA, the other party may hold themselves to the agreement for fear of being that aggressor in the agreement.

The Lord loves us so much that exposure is the last straw. When we fail to listen, or refuse to listen to the warnings of the Lord, the Lord will uncover us. Not just to bring shame on us, but to ensure that we come back to Him in repentance.

Because the most important thing is not the salvaging of our reputation, but the saving of our souls.

You can conclude what you want from this, but Ravi left way too soon. But now, with these new reports, we can see why he may have left us too soon.

Not only. was he was involved with another woman online, he denied the allegations. According to the report, he became a predator.

In the book, “Betrayal Of Trust,” there’s two kinds of pastors that engage in sexual immorality.

Wanderers and predators.”

A wanderer is one that engages a single time of adultery. A predator insists on repeating his or her offense. Their obsessed with the success of engaging in sin.

Ecclesiastes 8:11-13 (NKJV Strong’s)

“Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Though a sinner does evil a hundred times, and his days are prolonged, yet I surely know that it will be well with those who fear God, who fear before Him. But it will not be well with the wicked; nor will he prolong his days, which are as a shadow, because he does not fear before God.”

When you lose being afraid of God, it’s very easy to sin, but sin always come with a built in consequence. No one gets away with it. We’re given space to repent because the Lord is full of long-suffering, mercy, and truth. But when we insist, it’s a matter of time before the Lord see that He’s about to lose you.

Ravi may have repented and regained his rightful place in the Lord, but to ensure that the Lord doesn’t lose what He sent His Son to die for, sometimes, according to Isaiah 57:1-2, He takes the righteous.

He crossed the line and the woman sadly didn’t stop it soon enough.

The woman in question can share the blame because you don’t have to answer every email or go to the chat room. Silence is another way to declining further contact that opens up doors to sexual encounters.

When you’re engaging online, you have to have clear established boundaries. Failure to maintain those boundaries, leads only to consequences that damages the validity of the gospel, and brings shame to His name.

Brazil Outlaws Homophobia

We all know that among all of the other sexual hotspots of the world, Brazil is ranked very high as one of the most prolific sexual immortality places in the western hemisphere.

But first, in one of my blogs is some information regarding the origin of the word “homophobia.”

There is no etymological word and its purpose is to place a stigmatization on people that are against the act of homosexuality. The equation of hatred against the act of homosexuality and the person that practice homosexuality has found its universal word to place on anyone as a tag.

This tag is considered as an all purpose tag to make it appear that a person hates a homosexual person. Even when that person preaches and lives the righteous Word of God, and lovingly explain from the Bible that God declares the sin of homosexuality an abomination.

But that’s only half of the preaching. A child of God will also inform homosexuals that you can change with God’s help to obey the Word.

Paul tells us in Ephesians 4 that we’re to speak… “the truth in love.”

So now, in Brazil, it appears that if you say anything against homosexuality, it’s now a crime.

It’s what the world wants.

To outlaw righteousness and make lawlessness the law.

The practice of homosexuality has dire consequences. All sexual immorality has consequences, but when it comes to homosexuality, irrevocable consequences could occur.

HIV/AIDS.

The complete irrevocable elimination of the operable immune system is the penalty imposed on those that defy the original plan of God for sex within the confines of one male and one female in holy matrimony.

The outlawing of homophobia stems from the fact that homosexuals are attacked and killed. We should point out that a true believer in Jesus is not intimidated by any laws to prevent the preaching of the gospel. We’re not expressing a fear of people that practice the vile sin of homosexuality.

Phobia is just an expressed fear.

Much like a fear of heights, closed spaces, certain foods, flying, sailing on ships, etc.

Killing someone that practices the vile sin of homosexuality is just as wrong as practicing homosexuality.

However, just because a person preaches against practicing the sin of homosexuality, a law shouldn’t be imposed on those that practice the true and living gospel of Jesus Christ.

It’s like passing a law to prohibit a firefighter from entering a burning building to save a victim.

We all know that there’s loveless people that will kill homosexuals, but we also know that this law is also targeted towards true believers that cry out to God to help homosexuals be set free.

We can’t make a person free.

Only the Lord can free a person once a person no longer desires to be held captive in sin.

We all know that extreme loveless preaching without offering the only remedy is negligent. Preachers can’t preach with an attitude of hatred, arrogance, and pride.

As Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 (NKJV Strong’s) “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.”

Now, before we go further, it goes without saying that love doesn’t participate in the practice of homosexuality or any sin for that matter.

Look at what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:6 (NKJV Strong’s) Love“does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth”

And the world want us to love homosexuals while they practice the sin of homosexuality, and accept them all as God’s creation.

This cannot happen because the whole purpose of the gospel is to give us good news that God sent His Son, the Lord Jesus, to pay for our sins, and to deliver us from the power and guilt of sin.

Jesus died to free us from sin, not to remain in the condition to practice sin.

So far, man is incapable of finding a cure for the penalty of homosexuality.

This is the ultimate goal of man when a consequence occurs as a result of practicing sexual immorality. To find a cure to avoid or remove the consequence.

Much like trying to find a way to be immune from the penalty.

Pills will take the place of the immune system until the disease completes its course.

With certain sexually transmitted diseases, we’re seeing these diseases mutate and overcome the remedy. So should they be allowed or stumble accidentally into finding the right combination of chemicals to attack and defeat the disease, over time, the disease will find a way to defeat the remedy.

But with regard to what’s happening in Brazil, this is just another way to get the world to do the same.

The believers in the U.S. should take note.

HPV – Oral Cancer – Sounds Like Oral Sex

There’s many professed believers, even in matrimony, that believe that oral sex is no big deal.

In this report from FOX News, even in monogamous relationships, you could acquire the Human papillomavirus (HPV) disease.

Which further emphasizes the fact that STDs is there for a reason.

Many will defend oral sex and that’s expected.

Sadly, to their own peril, but at least you know that you could have avoided it if you’ve exercised sexual discipline.

Whether you’ve watched porn, then introduce what you’ve seen into your bedroom, we should never sin against the Lord and against our own bodies in the fulfillment of the lusts of the flesh and mind.

Many will argue that what goes on in the bedroom is your business.

But when the Lord institutes STD as consequential judgment against sin, God was already in your bedroom judging your sin.

A man walked across the street while I was waiting at the light with a shirt that said….

ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME

I said, yup, He sure will judge you.

Shirts like this is just a spin on Matthew 7:1.

When a person is convicted of sin and attempts to make arguments to continue in sin, shirts like these is a clear attitude of deliberate intent to defy God and His Word.

For the record, there is no specific verse in the Bible that declared that oral sex is forbidden. There is no specific verse that declared that masturbation is forbidden.

The other argument is that if the Bible is silent on these areas, we should be silent too.

On the contrary, just because the Bible is silent, it doesn’t give you permission.

Because there is no specific verse giving you permission to engage.

God put within us the ability to discern right from wrong.

When we’re asking questions to obtain permission, it is a search to justify sin where the Bible is silent. The Bible’s silence demand you come to the conclusion that you do not have permission, and therefore, you do not have God’s authorization.

PLUS……since STDs are associated with oral sex, or sexual immorality as a whole, it is further evidence that it’s prohibited.

If we were smart, we would see that STDs are only associated with lawless sexual acts and do everything in our power, as true believers in the Lord to be obedient and abstain from the very “appearance of evil.”

In normal sexual relationships, within holy matrimony, you are practicing safe sex. Besides, if you truly love your wife or husband, you would never introduce things of the world to do harm to them.

But, like I said, people will disagree.

The reason for such disagreement is that they’re experiencing a world of pleasure that they’re unwilling to give up. And that, in and of itself, is a bondage which hurts you in the long run.

If I am legally married, will oral sex send me to hell?

Absolutely not, unless you’re presently engaged in fornication, adultery, homosexuality, bisexuality, zoophilia, and other forms of sexual immorality, those sins are hell bound sins.

SO if oral sex in a monogamous faithful husband and wife relationship will not send me to hell, then why bring this up in the first place?

We see that STDs is connected to oral sex.

IF you want the HPV disease that is associated with oral sex, by all means, continue to engage in the act. It’s a matter of time before the results manifest. Just trying to get people to see that there’s certain things that could be avoided. It’s a clear warning to you.

Now if you want to ignore this warning, then it’s on you. You were aware of the risks and decided to continue in this behavior.

Proverbs 14:18 says……“The simple inherit folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.”

Proverbs 22:3 says…….“A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.”

Oh, btw, this HPV disease isn’t one of those things that flare up until perhaps months or years after acquisition. That is, if you continue to engage in oral sex, the possibility of it flaring up is inevitable.

All the more incentive to abstain from this behavior that opened the door to the disease in the first place.

Psalm 107:17 says, “Fools! Because of your transgressions and because of your iniquities are afflicted.”

You do not have to be afflicted.

Meaning……you are a fool when you open yourself to sin and reap its rewards.

Hilton Hotel Removes Porn From Pay Per View Menu

 

While this is good news, we must remember that this is the 21st Century.

Porn can be viewed anywhere on any device.

Your iPhone, iPad, laptop, or any other electronic device.

I suspect that because these devices are available, the sales of PPV porn are on the decline. It is no longer as profitable for the hotel to offer these sinful services. I understand that not everyone has access. They may have a device but they may not necessarily have access.

At the same time, there is the next step of porn that men take. Prostitution, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, and bisexuality. The place of fantasy for men and women can get boring in just doing solo sex called masturbation. Women seek connection and will offer their bodies to fulfill that “connection need,” and men just seek illegal sex.

Then there is the fallback position of substitution porn.

This is where the magazine rack in the supermarket, female or male mannequins with skimpy swimwear and underwear, the Internet, or going to the beach or the place where you do your workout becomes a haven for the fulfillment of lust in the heart.

As in the past and it is a continued issue among the church is when the para-ministries like Kenneth Copeland’s Victory Campaigns, Joyce Myers Women Conferences, TD Jakes Megafest and Ministerial Leadership Conferences, Women’s Conferences, and other Christian Conference attenders go to hotels, there is no question in my mind that somebody will turn on the TV to watch porn before or after the service(s).

According to a few sources, the average time a person watches porn in a hotel is 12 minutes. It is clear that the only reason a person watches porn is to fulfill the fantasy of having sex with that person in masturbation.

Why is it still a multi billion dollar industry?

Because you are able to have sex with that person without a relationship and it fuels the desire to release sexual tension by yourself.

It is clear that when it comes to self sex, when a professed believer is involved in masturbation, they are not operating under the fruit of the Spirit called “self control.”

When you cannot control yourself, it’s obvious that you are out of control.

You plan your life around masturbation or you plan to take things to the next demonic level and act out your fantasy with a live body. Whether you are a sex addict or not, when you cannot stop, you are not in control. To stop doesn’t mean pause. It doesn’t mean that you plan to start it up again. You fight the urges and impulses for the rest of your life. You take and maintain sexual control until your last breath and heart beat.

So while we applaud this hotel for removing porn from PPV, we are also aware that there are other means of viewing porn.

It’s just like saying that abortions are down in the United States, but what about RU486?

What about other forms of destroying a child?

The numbers didn’t change. The method of killing produces the same result.

So taking PPV porn away from hotel rooms is commendable, but a pastor, a minister, a deacon, a sexually neglected first lady, church going person will have other means to access pornography.

One Big Lie Started It All: The Stonewall Riots

In a FB post, they have a new saying that “It’s A Rainbow Day.”

Of course it’s referring to June 26, 2015.

Then another statement under this.

“Love Wins Out.”

When it comes to homosexuality, adultery, fornication, bisexuality, porn, and masturbation, it’s all about LUST!

According to the Scriptures, lust is the desire to have that which is forbidden.”

So, in order to have that which the Bible says is forbidden, you have to violate truth.

When the Stonewall riots took place, it wasn’t to go against homosexuals. NYPD was doing surveillance of the Mafia In a known homosexual establishment, but not on homosexuals and their vile behaviors. 

All of a sudden it flared up into a riot after the police raided the now historical landmark. 

Homosexuals stormed the streets. Cops were injured. And just like that, the surveillance was over and the homosexuals flip the script.
So ever since, it’s been a war of words.

Whose words will be believed?

So now even with the truth, people still believe the lies.

One lie after another.

So this nation is engulfed with lies that the elite of LGBT pushed for years until it was believed. They kept this little snow ball called lies rolling down the hill to form an avalanche.

But the one thing that the elite can’t get rid of is the truth. After the avalanche, truth still stands. Truth may have been buried, but truth still rises. Pesky as truth is, truth can never be destroyed because Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life….”

Yes, when Jesus hung on that cross, Truth was on that cross. But you can’t keep Truth dead. Truth was buried but was raised on the first day of the week. So no matter how many lies you speak, Truth will speak.

The elite of LGBT might be successful in ridding the United States of the First Amendment, but Truth will still be marching on. They might silence the voices of Truth, but Truth will find another believer with a voice to speak truth to power.

The elite doesn’t have a plan to eliminate Truth because He is seated at the right hand of God.

So what is the remedy for the hour?

For people to stand and speak the truth no matter the cost.

Yes, there is a price to pay, but the ultimate price for our sins was paid over two thousand years ago.

It will hurt because your relatives and friends agree with the lies. They will scream at you and call you everything but a child of God. They will even betray you and deny you. But thank God that God will not betray us or deny us.

Even should they be successful in manipulating the constitution, there is one major problem on their hands.

The Bible. The Truth. The Word of God.

They have no power to alter, destroy, or rid the earth of the most powerful Book on earth.

Yes, they can make their own book, and yes, they can alter certain words, but they are way too late since the Bible was here before them, and should Jesus tarry, it will be here after we are all gone. But somewhere somebody will have a copy of the original. God is that Smart to conceal the Word in the hearts of men and women should they take every Bible off the planet.

Homosexuals one big lie has another problem.

The manifestation of STDs which confirms that the sin of homosexuality has a problem.

No Supreme Court justice has the power to overrule consequential judgment.

The lie of safe homosexual sex is just that. One big lie.

The risks of violating the way God ordained sex is ever present.

Again, it is proof that sex between one man and one woman in marriage is the one of two place to avoid STDs.

Abstinence is the other place until marriage between one man and one female takes place.

But that’s just on one level.

It’s not heterosexuality that we are after.

It is holiness.

Sin is dirty and destructive.

Sin cannot satisfy the longing in the heart for God.

Sin cannot reward you with eternal life.

Sin’s payment is always death.

If you want to believe the lie that started it all, it’s your choice.

But there is a better way that leads to life in Christ.

When you are finished with the lust, and you’ve had enough of homosexual love-excuse me, lust,” the Lord is waiting to forgive you of all your sins and give you eternal life after you repent, and be born again.

But if you insist on believing the lie and the father of lies, Romans 6:23 says,

“For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

The lie of Stonewall could be seen here.

Billy Graham’s Grandson Commits Adultery – Ministerial Suicide By Adultery?

Just a few days ago, the Lord told me that the devils on the earth have said, “If the believers knew how to walk like Christ, we would be under their feet every day.”

The price of adultery among pastors is always incalculable. In this hour where sexual immorality is plaguing the world, the church needs to be a beacon of light in a dark world. But when the devil can cause a well known minister to fall into Secret or Overt Sexual Sins, it gives our work of the ministry another black eye.

We disqualify ourselves and render ourselves unfit for the service of the Master.

The world will look at us a incapable of living to the standards that we’ve been preaching to them about.

However, just because people fail the standard, it doesn’t mean that the standard failed in and of itself.

Jesus said, “Heaven and earth will pass away but My Words will never pass away.”

Preachers. The last thing we need is to give the devil more ammunition to choke the church into submission.

The devils is not looking for us to “tap out.” 

This anaconda is looking to squeeze the life out of the church and swallow us whole.

But Jesus said, “The gates of hell shall not prevail against the church.”

First, based on the story, the wife of Tullian Tchividjian, the son of the eldest daughter of Billy Graham, admitted to committing adultery. In turn, or should I say, in RETURN, he felt justified to commit adultery too.

Years ago, when I came out from the darkness of Secret Sexual Sins, I took note of the many ministers that were caught in the web of sexual sins.

One by one, they would fall.

The Lord would tell me that this would not be the last. That more would fall along the way.

The Lord was true to the letter.

In both cases of the wife committing adultery and the husband committing adultery, two wrongs do not make a right.

Ministry is fair game and is a level playing field.

From the plains of Moab (Mother of All Battles) to today, sexual immorality to destroy a ministry is ever present.

It is clear that when you leave your family vulnerable, there is a good chance that satan will take advantage of it.

Sex is a very powerful tool that the enemy uses to destroy ministers and their ministries. As Paul said, we must take heed, lest we fall.

As many of us have been saying, no one is exempt from sexual temptation. If we fail to watch ourselves every moment, we will be sucked under the undercurrent and drown in sin. If no one rescues us, we are forever lost according to Revelation 21:8.

It doesn’t matter the name brand of preachers.

It’s a level playing field. We are all fair game.

We do not have to be well known and then again, we can be well known.

The devil doesn’t care, He will go after anyone that is willing to drink of the mud of sexual immorality to bring dishonor to the name of the Lord. That’s why it is important that we take heed and never leave our marriages vulnerable.

If you are married, your first ministry is your marriage. God will not fault you for making sure that your marriage has integrity. Your ministry might be a mess, but it is better to have a messy ministry than to have a messy marriage. This is no excuse to allow your ministry to be in disarray.

When a man marries a ministry, it is adultery.

Now this is not to say that this is the case with Tullian Tchividjian.

I will say that up to this point, it gives the appearance that there was neglect in the marriage. It very well could have been both of them neglecting each other. Or it could be just one person neglecting the other. Sometimes a man could use ministry as an excuse to get away from a wife that is seeking his attention. Or there could be other resolvable issues that he or she is seeking to get away from.

Again this is speculative because we do not know the circumstances.

But it gives us a glimpse into the fact that whatever the case may be, we need to be more diligent about maintaining our marriages with integrity. If there are differences, and no marriage on earth doesn’t have differences, to do the best to resolve them as quickly as possible. Otherwise the enemy will exploit those differences just as satan did in the Garden of Eden.

I find it that many will not learn from this lesson and more adulterous relationships will continue, but it is not worth going to hell over. And it is not worth losing your place in the Body of Christ to lead people to live holy lives before God.

Some will learn from this lesson and begin to make changes to foster good marriages while in ministry. Many will make the necessary heart and attitude changes so that they could avoid the same pitfalls of many marriages.

Some will go the extra mile to see that each others needs is met. To pray and seek the help of God to have a healthy marriage.

Not all marriages that end in adultery is a porn and masturbation issue. 

However, we should check to make sure that this is not an issue.

Finally, in reading comment on FB, a person shared that adultery was used to get out of the ministry.

It is possible because it’s called (newly coined) Ministerial Suicide By Adultery.

The person shared that it’s been done before by many persons in the ministry.

It’s when a person has had enough of ministry that the deliberately commit adultery because they know that it’s a sure way to be removed from the pulpit. In a way, it may have some truth to it, but, why not just resign the pulpit? Or why not groom an experienced pastor to assume the pulpit?

It’s so much better than conceiving a disgraceful way to end a ministry.

Usually, after the pastor has an adulterous relationship, the flock abandons the ministry.

It’s not rare that people stay to make the remaining ministry work. It has been done where recovery is possible. Some churches survive and thrive. Others experience a decline in attendance, thus reducing its numbers, but the church remains intact. Others have closed their doors forever.

We must never underestimate the power of the enemy to destroy a ministry.

Again, this is a level playing field and everyone need to be even more diligent, sober, and vigilant.

Father, we pray for this family that they would recover from the snare of the enemy. That the grace of God would enter their minds and foster an atmosphere of healing. May repentance be granted from God. May God restore to them the joy of His salvation. Lord, let your will be done.

Let us recognize the price of sexual failure. But let us also recognize that forgiveness is granted to those that repent of wickedness. The Body of Christ is stained once again. The fiery dart of the wicked one has once again been shot. It has found it’s mark because the shield of faith was dropped in battle. 

Lord, we cannot cover sin for to do so, no one can prosper. But when we confess and forsake sin, we shall obtain mercy.

Lord, there is no excuse for this. For You have given us everything that we need to overcome.

The blood of Jesus is available as always to wash us and make us clean, provided we come with humble hearts to seek its cleansing power.

Only the blood of Jesus is powerful enough to remove the stains of sin. Only the grace of God is powerful enough to sustain the weak in weak moments. Let Your grace prevail. Let not the enemy gloat over this. 

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Black Conservative Pastors And Sexual Immorality

Isaiah 52:11-12 says, “Depart! Depart! Go out from there,
Touch no unclean thing;
Go out from the midst of her,
Be clean,
You who bear the vessels of the Lord.
For you shall not go out with haste,
Nor go by flight;
For the Lord will go before you,
And the God of Israel will be your rear guard.”

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 says, “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will dwell in them
And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.”
Therefore
“Come out from among them
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean,
And I will receive you.”
“I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty.”

Job 22:27-30 “You will make your prayer to Him,
He will hear you,
And you will pay your vows.
You will also declare a thing,
And it will be established for you;
So light will shine on your ways.
When they cast you down, and you say, “Exaltation will come! ’
Then He will save the humble person.
He will even deliver one who is not innocent;
Yes, he will be delivered by the purity of your hands.”

In order for Black conservatives to have the moral standing it needs to address the issues of our times, we must be sold out the Lord. Our lives must be pure before God and that means that we must abstain from every form of evil.

If we want to see the hand of God move in our communities and political process. If we desire God’s success, we must be separate, clean, and pure.

In most polls, it is a known fact that there are over 300,000 churches in the United States. According to a Rick Warren poll taken several years ago and that needs to be updated, 43% or more pastors have struggled with pornography.

We all know that no man or woman that ever watch porn, never act out sexually in either masturbation, fornication, adultery, bisexuality, or homosexuality. If we are not pure before God and the people then we are basically no different than the liberals.

“Prayer produces intimacy with God,” the late Ed Cole states. Purity produces holiness before God. Only the “pure in heart shall see God” said Jesus. Just recently, Josh Duggar working for FRC resigned because of child molestation committed by him as a teen.

Many of you have heard of adultery committed by pastors and we are all shocked.

The root cause of adultery, child molestation is not porn. 

It’s the lust of the flesh and mind and the pride of life according to 1 John 2:15-17 and James 1:14-15.

Porn is the fuel as the executed Ted Bundy said in an interview with Dr. James Dobson.

Preponderance of the evidence may point to some level of pornographic activity in the lives of leaders that will eventually come out according to Luke 12:2.

As a Black Conservative pastor, my life was marred by this activity and is well documented in this blog and on Blogtalkradio.

I know full well the traps that some Black pastors are in.

Thankfully, there are other Black Conservative pastors that have kept themselves from this vile sin and have lives that are pure before God.

If we are going to take the fight to the streets, our lives must be blameless. We must learn to keep ourselves from the dark dungeons of sexual immorality if we are going to win this battle against the elite proponents of the sin of homosexuality and abortion. In California, according to Internet Filter Review, 1600 divorce attorneys say that half of all divorces is the direct or indirect result of pornography and adultery.

IF Black Conservatives are to be taken seriously, according to Ephesians 5, we must not have the hint of sexual immorality in our lives. Otherwise, we will not see the victory that we desperately need to glorify the Lord.

Secret Sexual Sins must be dealt with. Otherwise, the media will be used by the Lord to expose these things and destroy our efforts to wage war in purity.

HIV Among African Americans, The True Cause: More Smoke In Mirrors Rhetoric

There was an interesting article about contracting HIV/AIDS in the Black community. That it is more to it than the sin of homosexuality. Well, they made a list of “side issues” to detract from the main issue.

To be very blunt, when you, as a man, put your penis into the anus of another man, the results are well documented. When a man sticks his penis in the mouth of another man after it has penetrated the anus, the results are well documented.

There is no question about the residual causes (intravenous drugs, HIV by birth, etc.) associated with the sin of homosexuality but MSM is undoubtedly the root cause of HIV/AIDS. Make no mistake about it. Why hide the truth?

Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

Since man doesn’t want to be free, man chooses to stay in bondage to lies and deceptions to continue in the sin of homosexuality.

My blunt statements, and the blunt statements of many others that voiced the truth is what the LGBT community intentionally run away from and they will make every attempt to keep the truth from escaping the closet. By vainly attempting to normalize the sin of homosexuality, we see that there is nothing normal about what homosexuals practice. 

We all know that the truth is already out but to keep blinding the minds of man, statements like what I’ve read will do the job.

This is not hate language. You’ve never read that I hate you.

God knows how to love you and hate you at the same time.

God’s face is against the wicked. God’s Word is against the wicked. But the love of God is offered to the wicked. Yet, because of a deep love for sin over righteousness, the wicked will not come to the love of the Father. This love has a time date stamped on it.

Your death or the coming of the Lord, which ever comes first.

In love, I share the love of Jesus by telling you the truth because you and I do not have much time left on this earth. For some people involved with any sin, truth becomes too much to bear when the convicting power of the Holy Spirit comes. In that conviction, you will either accept the truth and repent, or “suppress the truth in unrighteousness.” 

The proof that what is shared as truth is when you suppress the truth.

You are not being forced into accepting truth. You can reject the truth but ask yourself whether or not it’s a risk you are willing to accept. After death, comes the judgment. If you are in Christ, after death comes the reward of the Father’s love.

The purpose of conviction is to get the message over to you that what you are doing is in direct violation of the Word of God. When the flashing lights of a police car are behind you, you may have violated the law. Such is the case with the Word of God. Like flashing lights, you are violating the law.

You might be able to fight a police ticket, but no one can fight against the Word of God and win.

When you practice sin in violation against the Lord God, there is the consequential judgment applied to every act of deliberate sin. Touch fire and you will get burned. Drink poison and you will get sick and or die. 

Ezekiel 18:4

“Behold, all souls are Mine;

The soul of the father

As well as the soul of the son is Mine;

The soul who sins shall die.”

No matter how practicing homosexuals want to legitimatize the sin of homosexuality, the results will always be the same. 

The wisdom of God overrides the will and laws of man every time.

Man can make laws to outlaw Christians and the Bible. Man can make laws with penalties attached to force Christians to be silenced and perform weddings of homosexuals. Man can make whatever laws they want, but to be very clear, I will deliberately disobey man’s law to legitimize the sin of homosexuality. 

I’d rather be judged by sinners and be found guilty of disobeying man’s impotent laws that transgress the Word of God than to be judged by God for obeying man over God.  

Jesus said in Matthew 10:27-28

“Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Face it. God is way smarter than man because He is the Creator. No, God did not make man to be homosexuals because man was created in the image of God. Sin came when Adam transgressed the commandment of God. As a result, death came into the world.

However, through the expiatory death of His Son, when we repent of sin and forsake sin, we can have eternal life.

You have every right to believe that the Bible is a fairy tale. You have every right to not believe that Jesus died for your sins. You have every right to make any law you want. But you can’t stop death. It comes for every man.

Hebrews 9:27 says, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die after this the judgment.”

Since death is true, judgment is true.

Ask yourself this question.

“Do you know why man must die?”

If you have a better answer than the Bible and a better solution than the Bible, we are waiting to hear what you have to say.

The article about why African Americans make up 50% of all HIV/AIDS cases could be read here, but make no mistake about it, it’s the practice of homosexuality that is the root cause of HIV/AIDS. To think otherwise or to provide smoke in mirrors is folly.
