About My Beloved
Because I have loved the PCUSA and its predecessors and sister mainline franchises so much in their previous incarnations as introducing me to Jesus, nurturing my faith in Jesus, and enabling my undershepherding call for Jesus, I have prayed and labored for their return to Him as esteemed in over 2K years of Biblical, confessional, constitutional, historical, traditional, and common sense Christianity.
I weep in prayer almost every day over what has become of them.
Previously, in a book that few bought and runs behind the toothy Texan by almost a trillion to one to force humility (Fifteen Secrets), I have said the problems include unconverted clergy, unconvinced laity, and pharisaical reincarnations substituting organizational order for Biblical authority.
I threw that out back in 2004.
Today, I think the problems also include glorified social workers masquerading as pastors who like some of the personal and social ethics of Jesus while having the arrogance to ignore even challenge and condemn most of the personal and social ethics of Jesus and have excluded the eternal that they don't believe for the existential that they kinda like.
Truth is too many of today's clergy, especially in mainline denominations, never understood what it means to believe Jesus is Lord and Savior by the book, never really believed what they pledged at ordination and lied to get a job that's glorified social work, or changed their minds sometime after ordination and don't have the integrity to quit because they're in denominations with unconverted clergy, unconvinced laity, and pharisaical reincarnations enabling their hypocrisy.
I may be wrong on that; and if shown my error by Jesus, Holy Scripture, and common sense, I will confess my sin, pray and try to repent, and ask forgiveness.
Blessings and Love!
Salt! Shine! Leavenate!
Look up! Stand up! Speak up! Act up for Jesus!
