“The Nonsense”

Pastor’s new phrase. He’s been using it a lot. It describes all of our “persecution”: anti-CT blogs, media blitz, accusations of ill-doing, protesters, etc. Perhaps we might consider the sage advice of a Pharisee or two. Or are you wiser than them too, Pastor? If it’s God exposing our “nonsense” we sure don’t want to be seen fighting against God now do we?

But God says,  “Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived? Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him? But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed. Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,) Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth? They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet. And every man went unto his own house” (John 7:47-53). “Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space; And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men. For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought. After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed. And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone:for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God. And to him they agreed:and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go” (Acts 5:34-40).

But God says, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour” (Exodus 20:16). “Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it” (Psalms 34:11-14). “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44). “A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish” (Proverbs 19:9). “A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit” (Proverbs 15:4).
Proverbs 11:11,12

Brother Let Me Be Your Shelter – Jesus (Psalm 61:3)

What Pastor Scott has done to most of us is diabolical. Horrible really. He has desensitized  our consciences as we participated/sat quietly by so our families could be “murdered” (destroyed, cast away, shipwrecked, defamed). We know how Pastor uses our blood relationships against us as though it was a curse of affection we must fight against.

Stop. Think. We are Gods own blood. He made us. He loves us. He came to rescue us. He does not threaten us. He does not avoid us. Actually he draws near to us. He will help us right our wrongs! Yes even us: Mike and Emily, Hannah, German and Erin, Megan, Kristy, Tony and Lisa, Steve, Kevin, Keith and Debbie, Erica, Cindy, Tom and Katherine, Kevin and Chris, Susan, Pat, Mike and Debbie, Dan and Yelena, Roy and Karen, Donna and Rick, Sarah, Christina, Brian, Jonathan and Carly, Jay and Donna, Mike and Sarah, Josh, John David and Jamie, Joe, George and Sarah, etc., etc…

Hurry, judgement is at the door. Just cry out to Jesus for help. Pastor has lied to us. Only God can help us now.

But God says, “Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it” (Luke 6:9). “And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Luke 5:31-32). “Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house” (Luke 5:23-24). “But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village” (Luke 9:55-56).

2 + 2 = 5

This film depicts our tactic of eliminating truth tellers. Repeat the error over and over from a pastor/teacher/Deacon/captain. Call out, name, ridicule, discipline, threaten, put away anyone who resists the authority/error promoter/liar. DON’T THINK. Don’t understand. Repeat after me, I am dumb. Pastor is the only one who understands. Trust Pastor, don’t trust myself. If I trust myself, and not Pastor, then I must be in rebellion. Lies become truth. WARNING: Do not believe anything which comes out of our mouths. All of us at Calvary Temple are untrustworthy. The only ones you can believe are the ‘dead’. They gave all to tell the truth. Loss of family, reputation, friends, wealth, strength, health and almost their faith in the church.

But God says, “Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah” (Psalm 52:3). “Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house” (Proverbs 17:13).  “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20).  “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” (Matthew 12:35).  “For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved” (John 3:20).  “Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God:but he that doeth evil hath not seen God” (3 John 1:11).
