Parents, we live in an evil world. God Himself warns us saying that it would get worse. Our pastor plays on real and natural concerns you have for the spiritual wellbeing of your kids. He promotes Calvary Temple as a mecca of all things good, pure, healthy, and godly. It is false advertising. Calvary Temple is a graveyard of broken and destroyed families. Whitewashed by unsuspecting youth, who parrot pastor’s agenda, in order to lure in more unsuspecting families and young adults. Leaving a trail of evil, sorrow, and despair behind him. He will keep your children. He has done it repeatedly. Beware.
But God says, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness” (Matthew 23:27). “Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies” (Psalm 40:4). “Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God” (Isaiah 50:10).
But God says, “Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence” (1 Corinthians 1:25-29). “Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day. I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you” (1 Corinthians 4:13-14). “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth” (1 Corinthians 5:7-8).
Most of us here at Calvary Temple are pretenders. We learn early on to mask our real feelings. Truthfulness could land us on the street. All of us have lost someone because they would not play the game pastor has invented. A game that has little to do with God or the Bible. We are trying to survive in a world where sooner or later we all end up losing.
- Children – pretending to love teachers, coaches, pastors who they know will put them on the street in a moment.
- Wives – pretending to obey and agree with husbands who will kick them out of their own home if they don’t.
- Husbands – pretending to obey and agree with pastor because if they don’t, their families will be told to leave them.
- Pastor – WE ARE GREAT PRETENDERS.
But God says, “God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me” (Job 27:5). “Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee” (Psalm 25:21). “And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man:for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth:Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not” (Mark 12:14).
