Skyline Church’s pastor has chosen to be politically active against LGBT community (probably to make himself a name and attract more parishioners through FEAR of the LGBT, like the Nazis did), when this church and others like The Rock and many other fundamentalist churches, Catholic Church, Mormon Church and the Moonies (yes Rev. Sung Y Moon still out there) got together to oppose the right for same sex couples to marry they drew a line in the sand that said “We are righteous and YOU are not” and became today’s new Pharisees that were so against Jesus in those times.The name Pharisee in its Hebrew form means separatists, or the separated ones. They were also known as chasidim, which means loyal to God, or loved of God – extremely ironic in view of the fact that by His time, they made themselves the most bitter, and deadly, opponents of Jesus Christ and His message.
The Pharisees perhaps meant to obey God, but eventually they became so devoted and extremist in very limited parts of The Law (plus all that they themselves added to it), that they became blind to The Messiah when He was in their very midst. They saw His miracles, they heard His Words, but instead of receiving it with joy, they did all that they could to stop Him – eventually to the point of getting Him killed because He truthfully claimed to be the Son of God.
Jesus Christ had strong words about the Pharisees, and what awaits some of them.
And now these groups are acting just like that!
I am a strong Christian proudly UNCHURCHED at this time until we can get rid of these “Pharisee” churches and really preach the real word of God LOVE GOD AND LOVE EACH OTHER!!! a very difficult thing to do!
