Matthews Vines:"make church's gay affirming"
« on: Wed Mar 20, 2013 - 09:53:35 »
2 Timothy 4

3For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. 4They will reject the truth and chase after myths.
..........

Matthew Vines, a Harvard-educated gay Christian who sparked a great deal of controversy in the church community last year with his in-depth analysis on why the Bible does not condemn homosexuality, has launched a new leadership training conference aimed at teaching Christians how to lead LGBT-friendly churches and communities.

"Right now there are thousands of churches across the world where gay Christians have no voice – where coming out means getting kicked out and losing all support from family and friends," he states in the video.

According to the project website, regional offices are being launched "in places where LGBT people have the least support" in order to "reform the churches there from within."

"Soon, gay kids in Jackson, Mississippi and Kingston, Jamaica won't just have to hear on YouTube that it gets better-they will have the personal support of outspoken, influential Christian allies in their communities who can ensure that it does."

Let us pray for Matthew Vines, that God will show him his sin, and he will repent, and follow the holiness of God, and not his flesh.

Isn't that kind of like a kindergarten where pedophiles have no voice?

Amen.  And let us also pray that his plans to spread this ilk are frustrated and come to nothing.

Every time before a church has been started centered upon this lifestyle it has failed miserably.

Just because he is using social media marketing campaign doesn't mean he will have success.
