Disinformation in CalvaryTempleland

Disinformation is intentionally false or inaccurate information that is spread deliberately. It is an act of deception and false statements to convince someone of untruth. (Wikipedia)

What you need to understand Stupid, is we are not told the Truth. As in “The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth. So Help Me GOD.” Mostly we are fed Pastor’s disinformation (see definition). Small soundbites of fact mixed liberally with inaccuracies. Fed to us via sermon/home fellowship/discipleship training. EnMass we are now programmed to spread the Virus and wreak havoc on any/all who try to get to the Bottom of it All. Every person has a little extra Lie to add to the Mix. Nobody Knows The Truth. Except the Man of Lies himself. Pastor Starr R. Scott. He ain’t telling. But Why? Oh Why? Clear up the Mess? No. 

Pastor retains control of his mindless minions by keeping us in a constant state of Chaos/Fear/Vague Threats/Ignorance is Bliss. He is fighting our Battles for us. Says he. He will protect us. Says he. He will lay down his life for the Sheeple. Says he. (You don’t need Jesus with this Guy around.) And WE LOVE to have is so.

Sorrow/Sigh.

But God says, “Should thy lies make men hold their peace? And when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed” (Job 11:3). “But ye are forgers of lies, ye are all physicians of no value” (Job 13:4). “He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight” (Psalm 101:7). “A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren” (Proverbs 6:19). “A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies” (Proverbs 14:5). “The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail. For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed” (Isaiah 9:15,16). 

Rise of the Villains

Scareee! Torn between Gotham and Black Mass, both trailers give chills. Pastor – you are operating in the same spirit. No rules. Bend or break them if there are.

Law unto yourself. Using the foibles/failures of your cronies to shield yourself from view. Your ways of walking in the light mimic the one whom God warns us of – that angel of light (Satan), who comes to deceive. Jesus is the true light and the way and the truth. And His light shines through your darkness, exposing the tactics of treachery you are using to try the hearts and faith of the saints of God.

You are happy when you make God’s people miserable. You are calm when you make them weep. You are pressing into your own destruction as you are planning the downfall of those you should be caring for. But hey, you’re gonna do your thing. Because (sigh), that’s who you are. Bully for you.

But God says, “Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men. And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the Lord. Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders. And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity. Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the Lord. Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of my people? Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait. Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the Lord: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this” (Jeremiah 9:2-9). “Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law” (Zephaniah 3:4). “I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word” (Psalm 119:158).

Satan’s Tactics [again]

“Satan’s tactics are to get you and accuse those that are over you in the Lord to get you to lose confidence in those who are over you in spiritual authority” (Pastor Scott)

Man, o man. Paul was a usurper of apostolic authority! He accused those that were over him in the Lord! He was using Satan’s tactics! He caused the saints of Jesus Christ to lose confidence in their spiritual leaders! Oh, woe is me! How did the church survive such a divisive onslaught against the ordained authority figures?! Paul should have been struck down by God and killed! Dead as a doornail, brother!

Oh. Right. He was struck down by God. Blinded. And God did all that because?mI know, I know! To punish him, make the guy squirm for his sins! [Cruel mocking laughter…] Actually, no. It was to get his attention, ask him a question, and then proceed to heal him and ordain him to go preach the Gospel of Jesus to the world. C’mon Pastor, you have got to come up with some new and better ways to get us to not snoop around and talk to the people you don’t want us to talk to. All to find out the nasty things you have been doing and Lying about to us. Sigh and double sigh.

But God says, “And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision. Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do. But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed…And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation. But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews” (Galatians 2:9-11, 13-14). “And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest…And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest:it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do…And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel” (Acts 9:1, 4-6, 14-15).

But God says, “They that see you shall gaze upon you, and consider you, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms?” (Isaiah 14:16). “But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to endure his indignation” (Jeremiah 10:10). “Fear you not me? says the LORD: will you not tremble at my presence, who has placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though its waves toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?” (Jeremiah 5:22). “I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and steadfast forever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end” (Daniel 6:26). “Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD comes, for it is near at hand” (Joel 2:1).

The Flatterer

(Taken from Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan)

So they went on, and Ignorance followed. They went then till they came at a place where they saw a way put itself into their way, and seemed withal to lie as strait as the way which they should go; and here they knew not which of the two to take, for both seemed strait before them: therefore here they stood still to consider. And as they were thinking about the way, behold a man, covered with a very light robe, come to them, and asked them why they stood there. They answered, they were going to the Celestial City, but knew not which of these ways to take. “Follow me,” said the man, “it is thither that I am going.” So they followed him in the way that but now came into the road, which by degrees turned, and turned them so far from the city that they desired to go to, that in a little time their faces were turned away from it; yet they follow him. But by and by, before they were aware, he led them both within the compass of a net, in which they were both so entangled that they knew not what to do; and with that the white robe fell off the man’s back (black with sin); then they saw where they were. Wherefore there they lay crying some time, for they could not get themselves out.

Christian: Then said Christian to his fellow, Now do I see myself in an error. Did not the shepherds bid us beware of the Flatterer? As is the saying of the wise man, so we have found it this day: “A man that flattereth his neighbor, spreadeth a net for his feet.” Proverbs 29:5.

Hopeful: They also gave us a note of directions about the way, for our more sure finding thereof; but therein we have also forgotten to read, and have not kept ourselves from the paths of the destroyer. Here David was wiser than we; for saith he, “Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the Destroyer.” Psalms 17:4.

Thus they lay bewailing themselves in the net. At last they espied a Shining One coming towards them with a whip of small cords in his hand. When he was come to the place where they were, he asked them whence they came, and what they did there. They told him that they were poor pilgrims going to Zion, but were led out of their way by a man clothed in white, who bid us, said they, follow him, for he was going thither too. Then said he with the whip, It is Flatterer, a false apostle, that hath transformed himself into an angel of light. Daniel 11:32; 2 Corinthians 11:13,14. So he rent the net, and let the men out. Then said he to them, Follow me, that I may set you in your way again. So he led them back to the way which they had left to follow the Flatterer. Then he asked them, saying, Where did you lie the last night? They said, With the shepherds upon the Delectable Mountains. He asked them then if they had not of the shepherds a note of direction for the way. They answered, Yes. But did you not, said he, when you were at a stand, pluck out and read your note? They answered, No. He asked them, Why? They said they forgot. He asked, moreover, if the shepherds did not bid them beware of the Flatterer. They answered, Yes; but we did not imagine, said they, that this fine-spoken man had been he. Romans 16:17,18.

The Great and Powerful Oz

Just follow the yellow brick road…do you recall how the Wizard of Oz had people shaking in terror as he bellowed out his messages (smoke and mirrors)? There is some concern lest self-righteous individuals think all those Calvary weirdos get what they deserve. Consider Dorothy and her faithful companions were ignorant of being duped – they revered the great Oz – and so it is in the land of Calvary Temple.

Here we have a group of fifty-somethings who came to Pastor Scott in his heyday. But unlike faithful Toto, they never ventured to pull aside the curtain and see the man behind. Largely loyal and willingly passive, the greatest sin they have is allowing a man to teach their children and young adults secretly to do evil deeds (without asking any questions). How many parents sit in on our youth groups or young adult groups? They have given up the right to parent, unfortunately, to one who is unworthy to be in the same room as children. Blind obedience is a killer.

However, the Cowardly Lion, Straw Man, and Tin Man, finally stood up to the great Oz – it’s just about time that the men and women of Calvary do the same.

But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:17-19; 28).

I Am Holier Than Thou

When we see someone on the street or at work who has left Calvary here is how we often handle it: a. Stony silence (even if they say “hi” or hug us) b. “You need to repent and come back to Calvary”.

But God says, “I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts…which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day” (Isaiah 65:2,5).
