Progressivism is running rampant in America’s Christian community, from the Methodist to the Catholic church.
It seems that many who consider themselves Christian are more than eager to put on the world’s idea of “love” and tolerance and fall in step with the greater, virtue-signaling progressive agenda.
Let’s be clear: when Jesus spoke about love, He was talking about selfless, sacrificial love. When you “love” someone by telling them they’re just fine in their sin, that’s far from selfless.
You’re just trying to save face in a post-Christian world where biblical morality is constantly demonized and undermined.
To truly love someone, if you truly believe that the Bible is the infallible Word of God, you have to tell them the truth about what it says.
But today’s progressive “Christians” are much more interested in pleasing the world than they are pleasing God.
Big League Politics reports on the Catholic priest who has bashed Trump’s immigration policies, only to turn around and suggest that some of the Saints might have been homosexual.
Martin is a huge proponent of the gay agenda, and gleefully posted on his Facebook page last year that an LGBT Catholic gathering put on by New Ways Ministry was “another sign of welcome and building bridges.”
When a savvy commenter pointed out that canonized Saints probably would not be impressed by the Catholic Church’s capitulation to the gay agenda, Martin replied by saying that some of the Saints are “probably gay.”
Perhaps. But at least one Saint is on record disagreeing with the heretical priest.
“This vice [of same-sex activity] is the death of bodies, the destruction of souls, pollutes the flesh, extinguishes the light of the intellect, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, introduces the diabolical inciter of lust, throws into confusion, and removes the truth completely from the deceived mind,” wrote doctor of the Church St. Peter Damian in his 11th century Book of Gomorrah. “It prepares snares for the one who walks, and for him who falls into the pit, it obstructs the escape. It opens up hell and closes the door of paradise.”
The Catholic Church’s official position is still that same sex attraction is “intrinsically disordered” and “contrary to natural law.”
There are rouge spiritual leaders like this everywhere who try to twist the Bible to meet the world’s standards.
This is why it is so important to always stay grounded in the Word, and not take our cues from the culture or even the slowly modernized, worldly church.
Test your leaders and test the spirits–true biblical morality can only ever be based on the Holy Word of God.
