On Homosexual Priests, Pope Francis Unbiblically Asks, ‘Who Am I to Judge?’

The Catholic ‘church’ takes yet another reverse-Christian, unbiblical stand. Instead of maintaining the Biblical standard and living accordingly, they compromise to justify their willful sin.

On Gay Priests, Pope Francis Asks, ‘Who Am I to Judge?’

ROME — For generations, homosexuality has largely been a taboo topic for the Vatican, ignored altogether or treated as “an intrinsic moral evil,” in the words of the previous pope.

In that context, brief remarks by Pope Francis suggesting that he would not judge priests for their sexual orientation, made aboard the papal airplane on the way back from his first foreign trip, to Brazil, resonated through the church. Never veering from church doctrine opposing homosexuality, Francis did strike a more compassionate tone than that of his predecessors, some of whom had largely avoided even saying the more colloquial “gay.”

“If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” Francis told reporters, speaking in Italian but using the English word “gay.”

Photos: US-Backed Syrian Rebels Ransack CHRISTIAN Village – Residents slaughtered, churches desecrated

The US is supporting al-Qaeda to regime-change yet another country whose leadership supports Christian freedom. MILLIONS of Christians fled Iraq after we regime-changed it. Many fled Libya, after we supported al-Qaeda’s overthrow. This time, the PTB that control the US military have decided to take out Syria so they can’t help Iran retaliate against Israel once US/Israel attack it.

These wars aren’t what our globalist controlled media says they are. We are not wearing the white hat. Christians in America should be outraged, but Jay Sekulow, John Hagee and FOX News lead the murderous charge.

We’ll reap what we’ve sowed. What goes around comes around. The US is not too big to fail. God will allow America to be judged for what we’re doing. We should stand up for what is right.

* * *

This is what happened to the Christians in Libya after we supported al-Qaeda who regime-changed it. Kadafi was a lot better than what we were told, and wanted Africa to be independent from the globalists. He was going to start a new currency, to keep them from being under the thumb of the globalist world bank.

Most pastors in America don’t bother to find out what is really going on. They’re aiding and abetting.

Modesty? Churches AREN’T grappling with clothing and what’s appropriate as summer heats up

Steve Hill explains the current rebellion in the name of ‘freedom’ that’s going on:

 Spiritual Avalanche – Steve Hill on ANTINOMIANISM (‘against law’ – “YOU’RE NOT GOING TO PUT ME INTO BONDAGE”): What they fail to realize is that now, under the new covenant, the law is written on our hearts. JESUS BROKE the POWER OF SIN on our lives, so by the Spirit we can LIVE OUT the righteous requirements of the law. “Adultery refers to ADULTERY OF THE HEART and not just the physical act.” “Sin will love you for a season and curse you for eternity.”

Here is an excerpt from my article, The Low-Cut Top Epidemic: May We Be Holy, which contains the scripture challenged by the TEDS student in the article below:

Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount teaching is so crystal clear. Lust is adultery and a damming sin:

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery;’ but I tell you that everyone who gazes at a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart. If your right eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna. If your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off, and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna. (Matthew 5:27-30)

Likewise, Paul was clear in his teaching toward Christian women:

I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. (1 Timothy 2:8-10)

One author interprets shamefacedness this way:

The word shamefacedness comes from a Greek word which means literally “downcast eyes,” but it is meant in a good sense and refers to one who is ashamed to overstep the limit of womanly reserve.

In my Let Us Be One prophecy, God said it this way in the chapter I call Jesus’ Dress Code:

My people, live as one, not judging one another, being critical of how they dress, one more popular than another. We are all different. Everyone is unique. Give people space, as long as it’s holy. You need to have righteousness girded about your loins. Hide yourself. They don’t need to see everything. That is for your husband, only him. Be careful; this is right.

God designed women to be very attractive to men. And there are certain things that only the woman’s husband should see—no matter what the Devil through society is telling us.

Churches grapple with clothing and what’s appropriate as summer heats up

By 

As Ann Cabiness stood in the Communion line at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church on Sunday morning, two things were on her mind: connecting with God and getting out of the humid sanctuary before someone mentioned her skimpy tank top and tight, knee-length running pants.

“I know I’m inappropriate, but I’m trying to save time. I know I’m in the wrong. My mother would not approve,” the 30-year-old said sheepishly as she made a beeline from Mass at the Bethesda church to the gym. “But would it be better that I not come?”

[…]

popular campaign aimed at young evangelical women called “Modest is Hottest” has triggered backlash by devout younger women who see the slogan as sexist. When the Bible calls for “modesty,” they argue, it refers to displays of things like wealth and is describing the depth of one’s spirit, not their neckline. Teaching women that their value rises if they have more clothes on is objectifying, a torrent of essays have argued.

“A woman’s breasts and buttocks and thighs all proclaim the glory of the Lord,” said Sharon Hodde Miller, a doctoral student at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School whose critique of “modest is hottest” in the online evangelical magazine Christianity Today was one of the best-read of recent years. “Modesty is an orientation of the heart, first and foremost. It begins with putting God first. To look at an outfit and say if it’s modest or immodest, I’m not sure you can do that.”

[…]

“We don’t want clothes to ever be a barrier. That’s one reason we don’t talk about it,” said the Rev. Don Davidson of First Baptist Church of Alexandria.

Imagine a world of no more privacy. Where your every purchase is monitored and recorded in a database, and your every belonging is numbered. Where someone many states away or perhaps in another country has a record of everything you have ever bought, of everything you have ever owned, of every item of clothing in your closet — every pair of shoes. What’s more, these items can even be tracked remotely.

Once your every possession is recorded in a database and can be tracked, you can also be tracked and monitored remotely through the things you wear, carry and interact with every day.

We may be standing on the brink of that terrifying world if global corporations and government agencies have their way. It’s the world that Wal-Mart, Target, Gillette, Procter & Gamble, Kraft, IBM, and even the United States Postal Service want to usher in within the next ten years.It’s the world of radio frequency identification.

Radio frequency identification, RFID for short, is a technology that uses tiny computer chips — some smaller than a grain of sand — to track items at distance. If the master planners have their way, every object — from shoes to cars — will carry one of these tiny computer chips that can be used to spy on you without your knowledge or consent. We’ve nicknamed these tiny devices “spychips” because of their surveillance potential.

“No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible”

I heard this profound quote today, and thought I’d look it up. It’s often misattributed to Voltaire.

I know a number of people who could have launched the spiritual revival we so desperately need, but they all made excuses, refusing to do what is right so ‘ONE’ can happen “that the world will know” – Jesus’ prayer in John 15.

It just takes one group of people in one place who get their act together, and we’ll have the revival that will rock the world!

Please, stop making excuses and do what is right on Earth. We must overcome! This is our one chance…. We just need a few people who will humble themselves, step up and obey.

The world is waiting.
