From a young age we are taught that Calvary Temple doctrine/traditions are the final and most authoritative way to please God. So when our pastor decides to sacrifice/consume one of us for his pleasure, how do you say no? It is like saying no to God! [Let’s be clear. When pastor refers to God’s will, think: what Pastor Scott wills. One and the same. Example: If God says pastor needs more money, pastor needs more money. All the tithe is mine, meaning – pastor’s] A few tiny deeds we regularly see here in Calvary Temple-land:
- You are being lured away from God [meaning pastor] by your rebellious child. Kick them out now!
- Your husband wants to take you away from God [meaning pastor] – leave him today!
- You love your mother more than God [meaning pastor] – get rid of her now!
- Your sibling is enticing you away from God [meaning pastor] – stop talking to them immediately!
- Your wife is undermining your authority [meaning pastors] – put that vile woman away from here now
FYI Pastor. We are not yours. We are precious, but not to you. To God. You have stolen us from others, stolen from us those we love. But soon our God will come. He rescue us from your thieving, white hands.
But God says, “Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit. Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not; And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations? Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the Lord” (Jeremiah 7:8-11). “And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves” (Matthew 21:12-13). “And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves…And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him:for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine” (Mark 11:15, 17,18).
