Pastor David Whitney has a column at BarbWire vomiting up all that nonsense we usually hear from the charismatics and Pentecostals about a “Jezebel spirit.” He is referring here to surveys that show nearly half of evangelical Christians support marriage equality.
A survey done by Public Religion Research Institute – finding 58% of Americans support Homosexual Unmarraige “Weddings” and 42% of white Evangelical Protestants would force Christian business and ministries to provide services to these un-wedding events. So 58% of Americans are on board with the Washington Supreme Court and an astonishingly 42% of white Evangelical Protestants are all united in the commitment to force Christians to do things against their conscience especially when it comes to accommodations of homosexuals. This is a seismic shift away from the seventh and eighth commandment. So 42% of Evangelical Protestants want to persecute their fellow Christians who stand on the unchanging standard of God’s Law Word regarding marriage and sexual morality. So those who claim they are in the household of God, 42% of them are a huge problem in America! They want to come after their own brothers and sisters in Christ and cause them to be persecuted by the State for staying true to the Word of God.
So that is what a large swath of America thinks.
What does God think about those so called Christians? We don’t have to wonder for it is spelled out in the letter from Jesus to the Church of Thyatira. After commending them, “I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.”
So to put it mildly Jesus is not pleased. He is not pleased that there is a Jezebel in the church of America who is advocating for sexual immorality and which wants to persecute Christians who are faithful to their Lord and Savior.
For those who don’t know who David Whitney is, he’s a Calvinist and a Christian Reconstructionist. So he doesn’t just think that there should be no gay marriage, he thinks there should be no gay people, period, because they should all be stoned to death. But I bet he also calls himself “pro-life.”
