To Their Knees – And Out The Door!

I was wondering if I went too far and alienated a new friend. I got it right!

Dallas (CNN)For most of their annual meeting this week in Dallas, Southern Baptists have talked about spiritual matters, particularly their keen focus on gaining new converts.

But the gathering of the nation’s largest evangelical group took a political turn on Wednesday morning, when Vice President Mike Pence addressed the nearly 10,000 delegates, known as messengers. And some weren’t happy about it.
“I know that sent a terribly mixed signal,” tweeted J.D. Greear, a North Carolina pastor who was elected to be the denomination’s new president on Tuesday.
“We are grateful for civic leaders who want to speak to our convention — but make no mistake about it, our identity is in the Gospel and our unity is in the Great Commission.” The Great Commission is Jesus’ call in the Bible for Christians to “go and make disciples of all nations.”

The Southern Baptist heresy – is DEAD!  The vile and false prophets have insulted Canada and European leaders who helped defeat Hitler. These Haters have given rise to the New Hitler! They got power by humiliating the poor and disenfranchised, and the alien amongst us. Don’t bother dropping to your knees! Hand in your badges and crosses. God is done with you! Your services are not longer needed, if they were needed at all.

Get out! Get out of the Abolitionist Republican Party founded by my kindred, John Fremont. Form your own party. And, if Jesus-God favors you, he will send his flocks -to you. Show some real Faith, if you can!
