"Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment." James 3:1
I believe that when church leadership is silent on issues such as homosexuality, the Lord will find them guilty of aiding and abetting an abomination to God - and they will most definitely stand before Jesus and answer for the crime of keeping silent. The latest data on where the church and Christians stand on this issue is staggering and truly deplorable...and the fault is entirely on the shoulders of the one in the pulpit!
When are pastors going to say 'I don't care about being controversial! I don't care if half my church walks out! I don't care if I lose my tax-free status because I violated the provisions of some 501c3! I'm going to speak the truth in the word of God because that is my sworn allegiance and assignment before God almighty!'
When is the church going to stand?!? Where is the fear of God over the fear of man?
