My comments will certainly evoke the angst of those who rush to prop up corrupt ministers as if they are victims. These Corinthian type sympathizers boast with inordinate pride that they are under commandment not to be judgmental so they choose rather to lovingly restore back to ministry the” man of God” who has merely “fallen”.
They also advocate a false moral equivalence by arguing that we all deal with sin. Excuseeee me! If that is the core issue, why does God set authenticating standards for his ministers in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. Such secualrized reasoning is intellectually Goooooofy!
However, In the name of [unprincipled] mercy, they reject God’s own vocabulary for pseudo ministers whom the Apostle Paul identified as corrupt “ministers of satan”.
Choosing ignorance sustained by denial, these compromised compassionates promote the very thing that God himself wars against.
Paul the Apostle said it like this in 2 Corinthians 11:11-15,”And I will keep on doing what I am doing in order to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to be considered equal with us…..
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.”
Now read this news report and you will see why I am ticked!
” Police say a pastor at an upstate New York church embezzled more than $400,000 from the credit union where he worked. Jason LaPierre, pastor at River Church in Kingsbury, is charged with writing himself hundreds of personal checks over four years while working at the Hudson River Community Credit Union in Corinth, 40 miles north of Albany.
LaPierre was a human resources and marketing executive at the bank. The thefts were discovered last year and he was fired in December. He was arraigned Wednesday on charges of grand larceny and falsifying business records. Phones for LaPierre and the church were out of service Thursday.”
