Dear Friends, do not deceived we are in the great falling away of the last days that Paul spoke about in 2 Timothy 4:3-4, “3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”
We as Christians need to stand up and speak against these ABOMINABLE, DISOBEDIENT, and REPROBATE CHURCH LEADERS!
Titus 1:16, “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”
Consider the following list and their grievous sins against God, themselves and God’s Precious Church:
1. BILL HYBELS: Sexually harassed women for over 20 years and convinced his church he was the victim.
Galatians 5:19-21, “The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery… and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
2. CARDINAL THEODORE MCCARRICK: Sexually abused minors and helped coverup over 1,000 acts of perversion against children- tried to resign to a life prayer.
Luke 17:2, “It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.”
3. BISHIP OLIVER CLYDE ALLEN III: Gay pentecostal bishop in Atlanta with a church of over 3,500 members; just wants LBGT people to be accepted in the Kingdom of God without renouncing their sin!
Romans 1:25-28, “25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. 26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. 28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.”
4. ANDREW STOECKLEIN: Popular mega church pastor put his family through living hell by murdering himself in an act of wicked selfish cowardice.
Revelation 21:8, “But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers…they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
REBUKE THEM BEFORE ALL THAT OTHERS WILL FEAR!
Paul said in 1 Timothy 5:19-20, “19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses. 20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.”
I pray for each of their victims, their families and the thousand of innocent people they have defiled and deceived. I pray for God’s mercy to rescue the people they have hurt so bad- so that they don’t repeat the same wicked acts or think what they did was in any way acceptable.
Lastly, those who are still living I pray they repent of their sins before they face God in judgment and hear these frightful words from Jesus;
Matthew 7:21-23, “21 Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’”
