Jim Wallis of Sojourners: Still a false teacher

When my youngest daughter was taking a Jr. College class on government during her last year of high school (home schooling), she asked if I had ever heard of Jim Wallis.  Apparently her textbook had an extended quote by him.  We are blessed with daughters that have outstanding discernment, so I was overjoyed but not surprised that even in a Liberal class and textbook she saw that he was a fake.

I’d say he was a wolf in sheep’s clothing but he’s so far gone that I think he took of the sheep’s clothing.  Must have gotten too warm.  In a move that should surprise no one, he just switched to supporting oxymoronic “same-sex marriage.”  He, like Rob Bell and others, waited until the precise moment that it would profit him to “change his mind.”

Of course there was no substance to his change, just blather about strengthening marriage (another lie).

“We are losing marriage in this society. I’m worried about that – among low income people, but all people. How do we commit liberals and conservatives to re-covenanting marriage, reestablishing, renewing marriage?”

When The Huffington Post asked Wallis to clarify if that meant he specifically supports same-sex marriage, Wallis answered, “yes.”

Isn’t that special?  He has taken it upon himself to do the opposite of what God said and act like he’s just trying to help marriages.  It has nothing to do with maintaining his popularity!

More about Wallis:

  • He is a faux-lifer, which is worse than being openly pro-abortion because of the added deception.  He blathers about “social justice” while ignoring the greatest injustice in our country: Killing unwanted human beings.  
  • While posing as a centrist, he accepted funding from pro-abortion Leftist George Soros then lied about it.
  • He is a shameless race-baiter.
  • Worst of all, he specifically denies the real Gospel and says the Gospel “is all about wealth redistribution.”

From a January 13, 2006 radio interview with Interfaith Voices:

Host: Are you then calling for the redistribution of wealth in society?

Wallis: Absolutely, without any hesitation.  That’s what the Gospel is all about.

Run, don’t walk, from people like Jim Wallis.

Bible-believer demands rebuttal time after accidentally going to false teacher Chuck Currie’s “church”

I realize that sounds made up, but the words are from Chuck himself via Chuck Currie: I’m Not Mark Driscoll..

Twice in recent months people looking for Driscoll’s Portland church have attended Sunnyside Church by mistake.  One woman demanded a rebuttal to the sermon.  Another man walked out yelling obscenities.

So I’m not in favor of the obscenities, though I can see how a true believer would be aghast at hearing a phony like Chuck “preach.”  And a rebuttal is exactly what is needed when Chuck preaches about Darwin, MLK, or who knows what else instead of Jesus (though maybe that is a good thing!).  He likes to remind people that we have as much to learn from other religions as they do from us — as if they have things to teach us about Jesus that aren’t in the Bible.

Now I’m not a big fan of Driscoll, but for reasons completely different from Chuck’s.  The things Chuck doesn’t like are Driscoll’s good points, such as saying:

Praying for our president, who today will place his hand on a Bible he does not believe to take an oath to a God he likely does not know.

Driscoll was dead on.  Remember, even Jeremiah Wright noted how church wasn’t the Obama’s “thing.”  I have yet to hear Obama say one accurate thing about the Bible.  He mocks God on a regular basis with his pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage views.

Chuck boo-hoo’d:

It is hard to imagine a minister being so hateful.  Driscoll doesn’t even represent most conservative evangelical Christian thinkers.  Back in 2010, I joined Christian leaders in releasing a letter . . .

Yeah, Chuck signs onto a lot of letters.  The one he referenced was a who’s who of false teachers — Jim Wallis, T.D. Jakes, himself, etc.

No, what is hateful is a lying fake like Chuck pointing people to Hell with his false gospel,  taking little girls to gay pride parades,  race-baiting and being a radical pro-abortion extremist.

Driscoll’s church, with his failings and all, preaches verse by verse through the Bible and treats it as what it is: The word of God.  And his churches grow in wildly liberal areas like Chuck’s.  Oddly, Chuck’s world-mirroring churches shrink even though he’s a liberal pastor in a liberal city in a liberal denomination.  Must be the ejector seats.

Wow — Obama’s former pastor says “church was not their thing” — plus lots more!

Wow.  Just wow.  Am I surprised?  Not that it was said, but that this has finally come out.  I wonder how the UCC spokespeople like race-baiting Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie will try to spin this?

See Rev. Jeremiah Wright Speaks Out About Obama, Politics & More and listen to the audio yourself.  This is just the tip of the iceberg.  Now I can see why Chuck & Co. have not been playing the religion card on Romney.  They are working overtime to keep religion out of it.

Wright also made some intriguing claims about the Obama family and its purported lack of interest in attending church. Since assuming office, the president has consistently faced criticism over his infrequent church attendance. According to Wright, this is par for the course.

“Church is not their thing. It was never their thing,” Wright says of Barack and Michelle Obama. “She was not the kind of black woman whose momma made her go to church, made her go to Sunday school…so the church was not an integral part of their lives before they got married — after they got married.”

After Wright made these comments, Klein said, “But the church was an integral part of his politics…because he needed that base.” Wright agreed with this statement, at one point saying “correct.”

 

Is this a bigger insult to President Obama or to the UCC? Maybe it’s a tie.

Race-baiting false teacher Chuck Currie provides a good chuckle with this post: “President Obama is a Christian, and a fairly typical United Church of Christ sort of Christian at that.”

Uh, is that some sort of defense?  Would Chuck also be a “fairly typical” UCC sort of Christian with his beliefs that:

  • Jesus is not the only way to salvation
  • Jesus is pro-abortion, including partial-birth abortion and taxpayer-funded abortion
  • the Holy Spirit told him and the other Liberals in the UCC that God has changed his stance on marriage, parenting and homosexual behavior (now that’s blasphemy!)
  • the book of John doesn’t belong in the Bible
  • the Gospel of Thomas does belong in the Bible
  • it is acceptable to lie and libel people on blogs as long as you think you won’t get caught
  • Christians  have as much to learn from other religions as they do from us (really?  I don’t remember Jesus saying that . . .)
  • and so much more!

Ultimately only God knows the hearts of Obama and everyone else.  But Jesus did say to be fruit inspectors — and it was even in the Sermon on the Mount that even theological Liberals claim to love (but don’t really understand):

Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. (Matthew 7:15–20, ESV)

Ann Coulter is much more likely than Chuck to be right in her Obama is Not a Muslim post (though Chuck will surely say how mean Ann is as soon and how we need to foster positive dialogue — that is, as soon as he is done calling her a racist KKK sympathizer).

The nonsense about President Obama being a Muslim has got to stop. I rise to defend him from this absurd accusation by pointing out that he is obviously an atheist.

Leave aside Obama’s fanatical opposition to allowing Illinois hospitals to save the lives of babies with God-given souls inadvertently born alive during abortions. Also leave aside the fact that neither of his parents were Christians. And leave aside his current crop of “spiritual advisers,” which is a collection of Mother Earth worshippers, polytheists and other nonbelievers.

Now rest from all that “leaving aside.”

The only evidence for Obama’s Christianity is that he faithfully attended the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years.

. . .

This was inadvertently admitted by Obama’s leading butt-boy, Richard Wolffe, on North Korean TV Monday night. Wolffe acknowledged that Wright’s liberation theology was not Christianity, but then forcefully distinguished Obama from the Rev. Wright –- i.e., Obama’s sole character witness for his alleged Christianity.

Of Glenn Beck’s denunciation of liberation theology as a false religion, Wolffe said: “Is he debating Jeremiah Wright or Barack Obama? They’re two different people. If he wants to debate liberation theology with Wright, he’s got something to talk about. But liberation theology hasn’t been anything espoused by this president.”

But it was espoused in the only church Obama ever attended regularly — for 20 years, no less — was married in and had his daughters baptized in. The title of Obama’s autobiography came from the title of one of Wright’s sermons and snippets from Wright’s sermons have appeared in Obama’s work.

So the sole evidence of Obama’s supposed Christianity is his longtime pastor, who everyone admits is a racist nut.

No sentient human is required to take Obama’s profession of Christianity any more seriously than if it were coming from a 1980s blow-dried, money-grubbing televangelist with a mistress on the side.

. . .

Former divinity student Al Gore famously botched a biblical verse, switching God’s instruction that we put heaven before earthly things (“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also,” Matthew 6:21) by saying we should make the Earth our treasure. (In the druidical religion of liberalism, not separating your recyclables is a sin, but abortion is just a medical procedure.)

Howard Dean told a reporter his favorite book of the New Testament was Job.

It took the Democrats’ born-again Christian Jimmy Carter three decades to announce, in 2005, that he didn’t think Jesus would approve of abortion (“unless the mother’s life or health was in danger or perhaps the pregnancy was caused by rape or incest,” etc. etc.).

Some highly relevant bonus comments from Roxanne (do not miss the closing line!):

Thee man who shrouds the actual Messiah and talks about parting the waters does not extend the same respect to his own family . While Obama became a wealthy nationally-recognised figure, his aunt was on welfare in Boston and his brother lived in poverty in Kenya (and still does) – like living on a few hundred dollars a yearabject poverty.  His brother’s keeper, Obama is not. Obama does not fare better with strangers: even the New York Times reported that Obama gave more money  to charity as he ran for President and most of those “charitable donations” went to Rev. Wright’s racist church:

“The Obamas’ returns are striking on a number of levels. They show that the couple made very few charitable contributions, sometimes less than 1 percent of taxable income, until Mr. Obama began his run for the White House.”

When the New York Times calls a liberal out like that, you know it’s bad.  This is also the same Barack Obama who wanted to (or still wants to) put charities, many of which are religious, under the control of the federal government.   I’m sure that Mr. Constitutional Law is well aware that if charities were run by the government, the Establishment Clause would destroy their religious missions.

Could the man, despite all this, be Christian?  In a quantum-mechanical, “all things are possible depending on the probabilty density of the electron cloud” way, perhaps.  In a “Only God knows the heart of Man” way, perhaps.  In any way that is meaningful to Christians who vote their values?  Hell, no.

Media bias, false teacher in the UCC and more.

See How the Press Tried to Smear Conservatives as Racist, and Hide the Jeremiah Wright Issue : Stop The ACLU.  The UCC really seems to breed these false, racist teachers.  Watch the video to see what the UCC is all about.

The media conspired to label any critics of Wright as racist and to hide the truth.  Obama “worshiped” there 20 years and never had a problem with it, and didn’t have a problem with it until the heat was turned up.  He’s as fake as Wright and other UCC “Reverends” like false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie.
