‘Prophet’ Dutch Sheets on the Marriage Ruling

Dutch Sheets, one of the many self-declared “prophets” running around America these days, most of them associated with the New Apostolic Reformation, has a column in Charisma News that is full of loud wailing and gnashing of teeth over the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling.

Psalm 2 speaks of rulings such as this one—natural rulers and unbelievers who rebel against God’s governmental yoke, and against his Son. The warning is strong, even terrifying, describing His anger and the destruction He will bring to them. Verse number 10 is especially appropriate at this time: “Take warning, you judges of the earth.” Indeed, there is a Highest Court presided over by “the Ancient of Days” (Dan. 7:9-11, 22). Whether they know it or not, every judge on the Supreme Court of America will one day bow before God (Phil. 2:10-11) and give an account for every ruling they make. And included in that accounting will be the fruit of those rulings, such as: aborted babies; His influence being removed from schools and public places, resulting in millions of young people not knowing Him and His ways; and the redefining of His marriage covenant, resulting in the breakdown of families, along with the devastating effect this will have on children.

Ah yes, the breakdown of families. How exactly is that going to work? Are there husbands and wives around the country this week saying, “Well now they’re gonna let those damn gays get married, so I no longer love my spouse and I’m going to break up this family”? If so, doesn’t that say far more about them and their warped values than it does about same-sex marriage?

And who could ever forget the mocking spirit demonstrated by our president when he decorated the White House with rainbow colors. Using one of God’s covenantal symbols, a symbol now used by the LGBT movement, President Obama delivered one of the most arrogant, in-your-face gestures ever performed by an American president. Knowing fully the anguish millions of Christians were experiencing over this ruling, and knowing the insult this act would be to those millions of Americans, he chose to decorate the White House in this gay and lesbian symbolism. When asked during a press conference to comment on the ruling (and other “victories” he experienced last week), he reinforced his arrogance and insensitivity. Refusing to back down, He lauded this inexcusable act, speaking of it as “a moment worth savoring.”

Won’t someone please think of the bigots? Won’t someone think of the “millions of Christians” who are in “anguish” over the ruling? Seriously, if you’re in anguish over the idea of someone else getting equal rights, you’re pretty much a failure as a human being. And yes, President Obama mocked you. Good for him.

    One thing that I notice is that the homophobic bigots never really seem interested in discussing the legal reasoning behind the Constitutional issues.

    A few do mention the word “Constitution,” but they seem to confuse the US Constitution with their denominations’ catechisms.

    Look, it’s bad enough that you people have victories, but you could at least not celebrate them. That’s just rude.

    “Ancient of Days”

    Album title!

    “Using one of God’s covenantal symbols, a symbol now used by the LGBT movement”

    Sit down and shut up, the adults are talking. The flood story is a myth, a fable. Referring to it as in any way factual is just another way you make yourself look like a gigantic tool (I know, you can’t help it).

    Ah yes, the breakdown of families. How exactly is that going to work?

    My understanding is that Christians think that what is sinful is pleasurable and what is pleasurable is sinful. So, cheating on your spouse is more exciting than regular sex, and gay sex is even more exciting because it is even more sinful. Since Christians view human beings as excrement they think that people naturally will become gay now that the law can’t be wielded as a cudgel against it anymore. Of course, gay people form families and have children just as well, but these believers don’t want to hear these facts. (Not all Christians think this way, but the homophobes do.)

    His marriage covenant, resulting in the breakdown of families

    I don’t recall who said it first, but haven’t Christians had hundreds of years to destroy marriage and shatter families? It seems only fair to let gay people have a taste of wedded bliss before Christians finish the job of utterly wiping out marriage with their serial divorces, annulments, and infidelities.

    Dibbs on the name for my upscale brothel!

    That’s simple … there will be families out there that won’t look like our ideal (but rarely attained) family so the breakdown of families will be even less ideal. See … I used both words in one sentence!

    Dutch Sheets eh? Sounds awfully more like Dutch oven to me! 😉

    .. the redefining of His marriage covenant, ..

    See : ” 1 Samuel 20:42

    Jonathan said to David, ‘Go in peace, for we have sworn in the name of Yahweh that Yahweh will bond you and me and your descendants and my descendants forever.’

    – Source : The Brick Testament (Online.)

    Among a few other verses like 1 Samuel 20:41 “They kissed each other.” Maybe “your” Bible doesn’t say all you think it does Dutch Sheets or maybe it says more than you think.

    .. resulting in the breakdown of families, ..

    Er, no, be more like the creation of families actually than their breakdown you fuckwit. People getting married and raising children when before they were shunned and no denied the chance – and couples not being forced to get together then break up to hide their true sexualities and all that.

    .. along with the devastating effect this will have on children.

    Bzzt! Wrong again you dropkick! Actually the children are better off as shown here :

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-07-05/children-raised-by-same-sex-couples-healthier-study-finds/5574168

    Among other places.

    Or, anecdotally, (Not exactly data – but I’m sure you don’t mind when it suits you do you!?) compared with say the girls in the sister-molesting, pedophile enabling Duggar family or Bristol “preggers again but don’t lecture me like I’ve lectured others” Palin ..

    ?????

    I doubt it.

    The Psalms were written somewhere between 500 and 1,000 years before jesus was born.

    The vast majority of the world’s people including most xians are Unbelievers of Sheets god. And always have been.

  • StevoR

    Arrgh! Every flippn’ time. Sigh Okay edit – that’s :

    Allowing gay people to get married and raising children when before they were shunned and denied the chance – and also couples who didn’t really love each other and want to spend their lives together being forced to get together then break up to hide their true sexualities and all that.

    D’oh! (Looks closely at preview, predicting no doubt more bloody typos and stuff ups here. Sigh.)

    Psalm 2 NRSV

    Psalm 2

    God’s Promise to His Anointed

    1 Why do the nations conspire,

    and the peoples plot in vain?

    2 The kings of the earth set themselves,

    and the rulers take counsel together,

    against the Lord and his anointed, saying,

    3 “Let us burst their bonds asunder,

    and cast their cords from us.”

    4 He who sits in the heavens laughs;

    the Lord has them in derision.

    5 Then he will speak to them in his wrath,

    and terrify them in his fury, saying,

    6 “I have set my king on Zion, my holy hill.”

    7 I will tell of the decree of the Lord:

    He said to me, “You are my son;

    today I have begotten you.

    8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,

    and the ends of the earth your possession.

    9 You shall break them with a rod of iron,

    and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”

    10 Now therefore, O kings, be wise;

    be warned, O rulers of the earth.

    11 Serve the Lord with fear,

    with trembling 12 kiss his feet,[a]

    or he will be angry, and you will perish in the way;

    for his wrath is quickly kindled.

    Happy are all who take refuge in him.

    1. The usual. What xians say is in the bible almost always isn’t. It’s just an inkblot.

    2. I will tell of the decree of the Lord:

    He said to me, “You are my son;

    today I have begotten you.

    The Son in Psalm 2 can’t be jesus. It’s some king of Israel (Judea) that god has adopted. It probably refers to David although since legend has it that David wrote the Psalms, he is making a song to…himself.

    3. And it is full of false prophecies. Israel and David never did take over the earth. They were overrun by the Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, and finally after 2,000 years of xian persecution, the Germans killed 1/3 of them in a failed genocide attempt.

    Shorter:

    Psalm 2 speaks of rulings such as this one—natural rulers and unbelievers who rebel against God’s governmental yoke, and against his Son.

    Pretty hard for unbelievers to rebel against god and his Son.

    David has been dead for 3,000 years and despite his wild claims of ruling the earth someday, never managed more than a small area in and around Jerusalem. And that didn’t last for long.

    Despite the bible’s claims that the ancient Jews were mighty warriors, they never did even get to the coast and defeat the Philistines. And…there were never very many Philistines in the first place. Same thing with the Moabites and Ammonites and they weren’t particularly big tribes either.

    @raven: Yeah, those stories do seem mostly to be told just to bolster a small, insignificant people’s self-esteem. But hey, one branch of their descendants is at least pretty scary these days (though still pretty ineffective at empire-building).

    What the heck is “the Ancient of Days” supposed to mean? Sounds (like me, anyway) like the title of a rock band with songs dealing in pretentious mystical themes (like what was parodied in This is Spinal Tap).

    His influence being removed from schools, resulting in millions of young people not knowing Him and His ways;

    Because nobody can possibly be taught religion in homes or (gasp!) churches! Gawd must be EVERYWHERE, permeating every aspect of daily life, or he is NOWHERE!

  • dan4

    If anything, God’s “influences” too much of public schools (i.e., the Pledge of Allegiance, which is said every day in most public schools, should have the “under God” line removed).

  • thebookofdave

    natural rulers and unbelievers who rebel against God’s governmental yoke

    Trust me, it works out better this way. Can’t make an omelet without breaking a yoke, ya know.

    Using one of God’s covenantal symbols, a symbol now used by the LGBT movement

    Considering how long it’s been around, it’s safe to call the spectral pattern public domain. If you have a problem with its use for non-sacramental purpose, blame Newton. He set the precedent.

  • whheydt

    Re: dan4 @ #21…

    I disagree very slightly, though the effect would be the same…the “under God” should never have been *added*. Personally…I keep waiting for some suitably rebellious teenager to start using the “Bellamy Salute” to go with it and when taken to task, he can point out that he is only doing what the original author intended.

  • StevoR

    @18.dan4 asked : “What the heck is “the Ancient of Days” supposed to mean?”

    I take it as just being a poetic way of saying really old and elderly i.e. having lived a great many days (years) and become ancient. But then I could be wrong.

  • whheydt

    Re: StevoR @ #24…

    Google is your friend… It’s a title used in the OT for God. Apparently the meaning is that said god is older than time. Kind of like the jokes my friends use when calling someone “older that dirt” or dating from “when rocks were soft.”

    @25. whheydt : Okay so yeah. So God is re-eally elderly and ancient. But thanks for that.

    #18 dan4: “What the heck is “the Ancient of Days” supposed to mean?”

    It refers the El Elyon, the most high god, the ancient of days. He was originally the king of the gods, the father of the other gods, including Yahwey (the current “god”). As the ancient hebrews adopted monothiesm (from the Zoroastrians), they decided El Elyon and Yahwey were the same god.
