Eddie Long and Randy White are guilty of biblical anarchy and behavioral Antinomianism. Peter clearly commands,”If you suffer public humiliation as a Christian , it must not be because you are a…criminal. [1 Peter 4:15[
Randy White was just busted for DUI and Eddie Long ponied up an undisclosed amount in a secret financial settlement to cover up homosexual activity with at least four other men. The settlement keeps the testimony out of the public arena. Wonder what happened to “the David fighting Goliath declaration?” Mere idle words to buy time to keep the crowds and the money coming in till he could run for legal cover. Snakes are known to do that you know.
Both Men were personally confronted long before these recent acts of criminal corruption and should be viewed as completely disqualified from ministerial office as public representatives of Christ.
Through the Apostle Paul, Christ himself prescribed the life long qualifying standards for representatives of his throne in ministerial service:
“Now the overseer must be above reproach, self-controlled, respectable, not a drunkard and he must have a good reputation with those outsider the Christian faith so that he does not fall into disgrace”.
Oh well, unprincipled mercy is sure to win the day again as the ignorant and unprincipled rush in to sustain, support, and promote the Antinomians.
Paula White, Benny Hinns recent heart throb, addressed her ex-husband’s arrest Sunday morning:
“This ministry is a ministry of restoration. This ministry does not compromise the principles of God, but we are the perfect church for people who are not,” she said, according to a transcript posted on the church’s website.
“That doesn’t mean I am an enabler. That doesn’t mean I condone. That doesn’t mean I agree with things. It means that I will help you walk through life. And I want you to walk with me through life. And I think that’s what the church is all about.”
Translation? I will condone,enable, and basically do whatever it takes as long as you people attend and “show me the money!”
