I spoke at a conference today. Another speaker told the audience that our government is starting to make laws opposed to god’s laws. He warned the audience to obey god and disobey our government at all cost when that happens. He went on to say “Be ready to revolt. Be ready for persecution! It is coming and we must be ready.”
Later he said most churches are also dead wrong. God has not changed his distain for such disgusting sins such as homosexuality and drinking. He encouraged everyone to fight against those without reserve.
He proclaimed that true christians cannot hide any longer. The line has been drawn in the sand.
Days like today make me hurt. I wanted so badly to go back to the platform and dispute his claims. I know many pastors have good intentions and are sincere, but today’s message from that pastor was harmful.
I will be glad when I can stand up for what is right. I also know it will likely not change the minds of the people who have heard such things consistently for years. But hey, I changed maybe I can change one other person in time.
I also dread the backlash from churches and church members who follow me and look up to me “spiritually” that buy into messages like that one. I will not be surprised if I get death threats when I step out.
