Background Check

Some recent posts on our official church-sanctioned blog promoting the ministry of Calvary Temple (i.e. Pastor Scott) are just damage control/public relations gimmicks.

First, any one of us can quote a decent sermon from 100 legitimate sources. Second, what is the background/biography of these writers? Blogger/Stooge #1 put his wife out of our church for 8 months to break her of sin, has cut off all four of his children. Blogger/Stooge #2 has put away her father, her mother, her sister, and her small nephew to break them on Pastor’s orders. Blogger/Stooge #3 left her husband because he wanted to leave our church and he questioned leadership. He wanted her to leave with him, she refused on pastor’s orders and has refused to allow him access to his little daughters.

But God says, “They shall put you out of the synagogues; yea, the time cometh that whosoever kills you will think that he does God service” (John 16:2).

The Dictator

Pastor is not at all interested in restoration – he wants capitulation. His motto is “No Negotiation”. He demands that we/you/they obey. He has your wife, husband, kids, family, and therefore you will do what he says or you will not have access to your family. He forces people to lie in order to be with their loved ones. Like the pharisees of old, he uses Scriptures to destroy the people.

But God says, “Calling them to Himself, Jesus said to them, ‘You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them; and their great men exercise authority over them. But it is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant; and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all’” (Mark 10:42-44). “He replied, ‘The man they call Jesus made some mud and put it on my eyes. He told me to go to Siloam and wash. So I went and washed, and then I could see.’ They still did not believe that he had been blind and had received his sight until they sent for the man’s parents. His parents answered them and said, ‘We know he is our son,’ the parents answered, ‘and we know he was born blind.  But how he can see now, or who opened his eyes, we don’t know. Ask him. He is of age; he will speak for himself.’ His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders, who already had decided that anyone who acknowledged that Jesus was the Messiah would be put out of the synagogue” (John 9:11,18, 20-22).
