#4 Transform compassionate pastor into a dictator and vice versa.
Now you see him. Now you don’t! To some of us in Calvarytempleland, Pastor Scott and his Mellow Ministers of Destruction are kind/prayerful/selfless. Only during those private counseling sessions will the demons manifest themselves. YOU know. At least those who have felt the heel of Pastor’s boot. The mockery/debasement/twisting/punishing of anyone who debunks pastor’s diabolical dialogue. And when he puts on the stern dad approach in the pulpit, we are reminded of dear dads who said “This hurts me more than it hurts you!” For Pastor it is an evil act. Cleverly calculated to confuse/coerce and produce a cringing convert to ChristLESS christianity.
We’ve heard whispered stories (there are lots) of being afraid to go into those back room meetings. And the pastoral puppets (pretty girls) laugh. “Oh no, Pastor is a pussy cat, he wouldn’t hurt a fly. He hates sin, but loves us.” Confusion. Who’s telling the Truth? Both. He scratches/claws/tears apart when he wishes, and he purrs when the pretty ones rub his back. Now you see him. Now you don’t.
But God says, “But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, ‘Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?‘” (Matthew 22:18). “But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men:for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in…woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone…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 23:13,23,27). “An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered” (Proverbs 11:9). “Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still” (Isaiah 9:17).
