Quoting Quiverfull: Executing Wrath?

Bart Janz, Independent Fundamentalist Baptist minister. From his sermon, “God and Government II,” Holly Ridge Baptist Church, 2006

“My job [as pastor] is to execute wrath upon those who disobey.… Those of you who want to do right, we get along just fine. Those of you who don’t want to do right usually have a run-in with me. You know why? Because I’m ordained by God to stand in this position.”

    I guess he’s exempted from the New Commandment.

    Man needs to eat a crate of humble pie. In his current state, he isn’t fit to lead.

  • Kristen Rosser

    Nope. Nowhere does the New Testament give him this authority.

  • This trips every red-flag alarm bell I’ve got for control freaks.
