“There are no consequences in this life – this generation more than ever, you can go on the web, say all manners of evil, and there are no consequences. You can make allegations against people (chuckle/laughter) and there are no consequences. You can do whatever you want within reason and to a certain threshold there are no consequences” (Pastor Jon’s words).
Ok, ok – we get the point. There are no consequences in this life at Calvary Temple. We can get away with everything, until we die that is. Forget the laws of the land, we are not subject to them. But we will subject YOU to them. We have perfected the art of ‘making allegations’. No proof needed, as we thoroughly trash your reputation & destroy your family/marriage/friendships. We do whatever we want – within reason (whether or not you call Pastor Scott ‘reason-able’ depends on a variety of factors ranging from gullible to crony). Are we speaking from experience Pastor Jon? (Personally, I love it when he teaches. Talk about “out of the mouths of babes and sucklings”…um, suck-up might be a bit more accurate here.)
Oh, BTW Pastor Jon, the pun is totally intended. I get what you meant, but love what you said. Personally think it was a de ja vu moment.
But God says, “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? Do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain:for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil” (Romans 13:3-4). “A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things:and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned” (Matthew 12:35-37). “For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law” (Romans13:9-10)
