Liberal churches have never been focused on God’s design for mankind, only the furthering of liberal politics and political ideals.
A Methodist minister at Northern Virginia’s George Mason University, the Rev. Drew Ensz, could face punishment for officiating the same-sex marriage of two parishioners, the latest chapter in an ongoing debate within the United Methodist Church over how inclusive to be of gay unions and LGBTQ clergy.
“I know Drew well enough to know that he made a pastoral decision for a couple that he was in a pastoral relationship with,” Beth Givens, a Richmond-area reverend, told NBC 4 Washington. “I think he did it faithfully, and he did it out of his heart of love for the people he knows and the people that he serves.”
These pastors, who are not worthy of the title, should be ashamed by their actions if they truly honor the word of God. The 1 Timothy 1:8-10 tells us, “We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. 9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine.” These so-called “pastors” are falsely and knowingly twisting God’s word to support their liberal political views.
As Christian and followers of God’s written word, we must always veer away from fake and “lukewarm” Christians. Ministry leaders who turn away from the word of God will also lead others away from Christ and we cannot allow that to happen.
Reverend (and I use this term loosely) Ens should lose his ministry immediately! Every second the Methodist Church allows him to remain in this position is only granting liberals and social justice churches to have more clout and turn new Christians away from the truth.
We must always stand for the truth and upon God’s word everyday. If we fail to do so our ability as a body of Christ will be diminished in the eyes of the Lord and we will be judged. Let us stand for what is right and renounce gay marriage and gay rights as a whole. Amen
