“You know, I made a comment the other day, I wasn’t being facetious when I commented that, you know I’m thankful for that for personally what its done in my life again, whenever anything like that happens, I look at my own heart. You know, these people are upset, for one reason or another, accusations that are being made, is there any validity to it? Because I know what I am in my flesh, and if there is, I wanna change. I wanna do something about it. And you begin to start, and you examine your own heart, and you go to the Scriptures, and then you find out, you know, what the conflict is all about. And in the process of all that, it’s a thing of finding out the relationship, the personal relationship, to the lordship of Jesus and the authority of His word, to where God’s word must be done. Period. And when, then as the messengers we are hated for the message, then that’s something to rejoice in, when all men speak evil of you, if you are representing the gospel.” – Pastor Scott

Wow. Vague is so Vogue right now. Mistakes Were Made. For us, awww. All better. Let’s kiss and make up. I’m good, you’re good (sorta/kinda). Me bad, so We suffer. Sniffle. Hark, message from God, chin up my little pewpeons. Rejoice. Maybe we can squeeze a little gospel out of this situation after all…thats a pretty big If. Btw, in a general sense, but not specifically, exactly what variety of ‘mistakes’ are we talking about Pastor?

But God says: “And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock. The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them. And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered. My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them. Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the Lord; As I live, saith the Lord God, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock; Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them. For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out” (Ezekiel 34:1-11)

“I’ve shared this before we have number of pastors can quote a whole lot of bible than I can. Know much more word than I know. And they are men that can also hear from God in addition to their knowledge. But I do know one thing over all these years. I can hear from God and I immediately do what he tells me. Immediately! Many of you know that. Some of you have been on the other end of that. But when God speaks to me, something happens. I’m gonna do whatever he tells me. Doesn’t matter what God says to me, I’m doing it.”

Scary! This sounds awfully psycho Pastor. What if that little voice in your head is NOT God? It doesn’t matter what it says?! I’m pretty sure lots of evil-doers follow that recipe for disaster. It explains how you destroyed the homes of several families in the past few years. Without any warning. Ka-boom. Lets see, how many kids have you made cry by “killing” their parent(s)? All in God’s name of course. Or how many parents have had their children ruined and cast away by your toxic counsel? BTW, what are you going to do with all those young women you made leave their husbands lately?

Sigh. You are dangerous man. You are not Christ-like. Abraham, Moses, Elijah, Peter, Paul, Jesus Himself all talked with God about their hesitation and even debated at times. It’s not sin. The servant of the Lord, who believes, does NOT make haste. (Isaiah 28:16). Stop trying to scriptural-ize your evil deeds. Besides sounding weird, your logic of the Bible is flawed.

But God says, “Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth” (Proverbs 19:2). “Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God:for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth:therefore let thy words be few” (Ecclesiastes 5:2). “The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want” (Proverbs 21:5). “Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? There is more hope of a fool than of him” (Proverbs 29:20). “Seeing then that these things cannot be spoken against, ye ought to be quiet, and to do nothing rashly” (Acts 19:36).

Sacrificing truth on the altar of power leads to devil worship. Whether the devil within or without, it doesn’t matter. Pastor, you began sacrificing truth a long time ago. Too bad. Now the day of reckoning is come. God doesn’t want your money, He wants justice. God doesn’t want your tall tales, He wants the truth. God never wanted what you could do for Him, He only wanted to love you. But that wasn’t good enough. You needed a god of power to worship. The Lord God is meek and lowly of heart, not quite what you had in mind. You have chosen a hard master to serve, this devil you love. Pity. There are still a couple minutes to midnight. Please, repent. And let the Almighty God break the chains of evil that you are suffocating under.

But God says, “What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness” (Romans 6:15-16). “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

“…and if it’s your children, you should be the first to put forth your hands to meting forth Gods justice and hopefully to reconciliation, but if not, to death. But they can’t be left in our midst to spread their doctrines of apostasy.” Aww Pastor, Now you know our parents are old and lazy. They are not going to get rid of us for you. They need us to take care of them when you are gone. Stop fretting over the highlighting of our/your sins. It’s time to let our “light” shine. And if our light be darkness? Sigh. So just remember, we are your pets and as long as you feed and tickle us, we will Obey and Come when you call. But if you try to weed us out looking for Sly Dog in our midst, you will only be kicking your BFF. Because we are the ones who chant your name, who bring you the most money, who fix your house and tend your grass. Who shine your cars. Who lure in other naive, slavishly adoring and obedient pets, uh, young people.

You said it yourself just recently “…this Nonsense. I appreciate all those folks for helping me.” On behalf of “those folks’ and present company, you are welcome Pastor. Based on reader response, you are a big hit.

And God said: “Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God” (Romans 2:1-11).

“…but everything we say this morning gets put out [there] and it’s tragic.” C’mon Pastor, we’ve pointed out your excessive, compulsive habit of exaggeration. Everything? Surely not. Look at how merciful God is to you, he could strike you dead in the pulpit for lying again. Just like you’ve been asking him to do to us. He has only exposed your sins (on the rooftop so to speak.) Those around you will hear and fear. Because you have rejected the men and women who rebuked you for your sins/coverup – now God exposes and mocks you. All who lie for you will know that God is no respecter of persons. You have corrupted the Word of God for personal gain. You are destroying the heritage of the Lord. You lie and walk in darkness. Your deeds are evil.

“…its tragic.” Huh? What? Do you understand the Gospel? We are to walk in the light. Openly. Honestly. Our deeds made manifest before men, so we can see whether or not they are wrought in God. Hiding, secrets, darkness, are tools of the devil. And as far as “spies” goes, God doesn’t need ’em. He is omni-present. Remember?

But God says, “Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil” (Proverbs 1:23-33).

“I don’t know your pastor and I’m not real familiar with your church but I know fruit when I see it and if this is the fruit of that ministry, that’s a good ministry praise God. You are just being persecuted.” Curious. So you KNOW our fruit is good becauzzzzz? Uh, we dress stylishly? We are well spoken and have manners? We can debate the Scriptures in a totally parrot-like way? (Which, since you “don’t know our pastor”, you would not know that we are programmed in our fellowship meetings to repeat the phrase from pastors recent months sermons that inspired us.) We drive nice cars? Our kids are well spanked and therefore don’t act badly in public? We are drilled to grill others on the authenticity of their personal salvation? (Although most of us are just plain religious hypocrites.) We are groomed to stand out in every way noticeable-lust of the flesh, eyes, and pride of life. Cars, women, athletic kids, jobs, public relations, religious zeal. Anything and everything to lure you in to bee consumed by the insatiable appetite for power and idol worshipping young people. Pastor. Pastor. Pastor. Pastor. etc.

“…not real familiar with your church…” Well. Let’s tell ya. We have had the IRS on our tail for bad things. We are currently being investigated by the Sheriff’s Office. Several of our deacons and pastors have had, ahem, sexual indiscretions while in ministry. We have personally destroyed dozens of families by separating them from one another. Extra-marital affairs? Lying? Fornication? Gambling? Pedophilia? Divorce? Party hardy? “…that’s a good ministry. Praise God!” Yikes. Pastor, I gotta wonder – are you telling tall tales again? Did somebody REALLLLLLY say that?

But God says, “Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance” (Matthew 3:8). “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Colossians 1:10). “For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth” (Ephesians 5:9). “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” (Galatians 5:22-23).

Sometimes Pastor, I can hardly believe you r saying these things when you r saying these things. I mean, gosh gee whizzzz, it’s awfully stupid stuff! But, on the bright side. We all get to be slapped in the face with the idiocy of your sermons in a most worthy public forum, such as the internet. And even THAT is more merciful than the Great White Throne of Judgment that awaits you in a very short while. (Just saying you are considerably aged, so chances are…)

Ah, but I digress. So we are BEST when our brains r in nuetral, nada, zippo, etc.? Tell that one to the sundry government agencies that employ us. And the banks, offices, businesses, schools, stores we work at. You are becoming a bit of a liability Pastor. A foolish man is condemned by his own words. Time to hit the delete button. OR perhaps you should eat more ice-cream.

But God says, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:16). “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple” (Romans 16:17-18). “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).
