How to Lose a Generation Over One Issue

Posted: May 21, 2012 in Uncategorized

When the dust settles over the controversy of this one issue, my fear is that an entire generation will be lost because of examples like this from Pastor Charles Worley from the Providence Road Baptist Church:

I’m ‘again’t” it.

Sounds just like Jesus doesn’t it?  *sarcasm*

Now go and read this excellent blog post about the potential and cost of losing a generation over this one issue.

    speechless. It is what I am after watching this video.
    It is what I wish “Pastor” Charles Worley was.

    Heaven help us.

  3. The Bishop says:

    Along with the repulsiveness of that diatribe, there’s another issue in play. He’s taken a public political position on an upcoming federal election. That’s a violation of 501(c)(3) criteria for being tax exempt. To paraphrase the Soup Nazi, “No charitable deduction for you!”

    Though I disagree with this minister’s tactics, he did not truly say to kill the gays and queers. He said separate them, feed them, leave them alone, and then they will die out. He attempted to be “godly” by being “humane”. You can not be godly by being humane; it’s impossible. To be Godly, you must love as GOD loves, prod to better living, and forgive when we fail.
    Living in NC I can say that some people voted against Amendment 1 because they hate LGBT. And I can equally say others voted against it because they love God and want to honor his word.
    Raising two teenagers, this is a sensitive issue for them. They have gay friends. They want to know that I don’t hate them, that I won’t leave them. I don’t want them to leave God because of this issue, but I have tried to explain leaving God over this is no different than leaving God because you are a cleptomaniac, liar, sorcerer… all of the things that others of their friends are.
    The way to keep our children in God’s arms is to teach them that God wants ALL to return to him. It isn’t easy to be godly, but we are made in his image and if we give him our hearts he will lead us home.

    What the ……..? You know what I noticed? I know they didn’t pan on the entire audience but from the people I saw, it was a bunch of older, gray haired, senior citizens. My solace in watching this is that this church will die out soon, as well. Good riddance!

    I’m not sure I should watch this. I suspect it will just upset me.
