Another Christian agency bites the dust

Yep.  As a former Evangelical, seeing this news is like finding out that Hollywood was a stealth fundamentalist Bible camp all along.  It's almost beyond belief.  Bethany Christian Services has thrown in the towel and accepted LGBTQ dogma and, by extension, rejected the Christian Faith model of Creation.  

If I had the time and there was nothing else to do in life, I might make a series of 'Christian leaders, ministries, agencies and traditions officially caving and rejecting the Faith.'  But it happens so often now, not a day goes by without seeing someone or something from the Faith just giving up and surrendering, that I don't think I could do it justice.  For that matter, I'm not sure there are enough hours in the day even with nothing else to do. 

God seems to have removed His hand from our time, almost as if to see how many will remain faithful in the coming storm and how many will just run to Caesar and sacrifice at whatever altar is presented.  I might be wrong to assume such a thing, but given the speed of the World's victories against the Faith and the faithful, it's something I am pondering. 

Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, and unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

  1. Do you remember the scene from INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL in which they open the wrappings that had enclosed the corpse of a conquistador for centuries? At first they marvel at how perfectly preserved the corpse is, but after it is exposed, it takes only a few seconds before the body collapses into dust.

    Stories like this bring that scene to mind.

    1. It's been a long time since I saw the movie, but I get your point. Wheat and tares I suppose. Our job is to make sure we stay among the wheat.

    2. Rye was a weed, but it imitated wheat long enough and well enough that it became a valuable grain in its own right.
