Calvary Baptist Church of Washington D.C., a member of the American Baptist Convention (ABCUSA), hires a ‘married’ lesbian couple to co-pastor the church, Sally and Maria. Oh right, so we’re supposed to believe or accept the narrative put forth that ‘the church’ has been intolerant for 2,000 years but has finally seen the error of it’s way and a new day has dawned in which intolerant, sexist attitudes of the past have been left behind. Next we’ll be seeing a surge in the demand that the Bible be re-written and purged of it’s ‘errors’. Religion is just that to Sally and Maria, the two novice ‘pastors’ who have fallen into the devil’s trap. To them, the religion is a set of rituals and memorized ideas which anyone can adopt without ‘knowing’ the Author of Life. Their pride shines like as bright as the morning star.
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Isaiah 14:12 (KJV)
The fear of the Lord is to hate evil;
Pride and arrogance and the evil way
And the perverse mouth I hate.
Proverbs 8:13 (NKJV)
This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous; one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?); not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
1 Timothy 3:6 (NKJV)
