My critique of a Pastors belief that churches should have a “budget” for their pro-life activism (or their Social Justice Gospel)
This morning I saw this ‘public’ post on my Facebook news feed, it was posted by a fellow Facebook friend, ‘Pastor Dale Walker.’ Below this post are my remarks.
I don’t know if I would call this a shame, or a sham. Sadly I am seeing more and more professing Christians shaming local churches and Christians (Christ’s bride) for not doing more about abortion. This one expects churches to have their own budget for the abortion issue. I say hog wash. When I found out that my previous church was financially supporting our nearby unbiblical ecumenical pregnancy counselling center, I quit writing checks to that church. Too many Christians have turned their pro-life activism into a ‘Social Justice Gospel.’ And their legislating extra-Biblical expectations upon others is becoming legalism. This is one of the reasons why I removed over 100 abortion mill videos from my YouTube channel (about 5 years ago). This is one of the reasons why I rarely upload them today. I don’t want to be associated with those that have extra-biblical expectations of the church, I want to be associated with Christ and His bride. Keep it Biblical folks. God is not biting His nails saying “Oh no, what am I going to do.” God is Sovereign, He is on His throne, and though His justice may seem delayed, it won’t be denied. So just go, stand, and speak, and don’t complain about others that do not. Frankly many that sit in these buildings that we wrongfully call “church” are not saved. So ‘your complaining’ unnecessarily blackens the eyes of the Lord’s true blood bought bride.
UPDATE: After my above remarks, according to his Facebook page, I learned that this Pastor is a “Free Will Baptist.” That’s part of the problem right there. According to their web site they wrongfully believe –
“Man receives pardon and forgiveness for his sins when he admits to God that he is a sinner, when in godly sorrow he turns from them and trusts in the work of Christ as redemption for his sin. This acceptance of God’s great salvation involves belief in Christ’s death on the cross as man’s substitute and the fact of God’s raising Him from the dead as predicted. It is a salvation by grace alone and not of works… It is God’s will that all be saved, but since man has the power of choice, God saves only those who repent of their sin and believe in the work of Christ on the cross. Those who refuse in this life to repent and believe have no later chance to be saved and thus condemn themselves to eternal damnation by their unbelief.”
Their heretical belief that man has the “power of choice” to save themselves (aka Free Will), and that Christ’s atonement was for “all” men, is part of the problem. That is one of the reasons why our buildings are full of false converts to begin with.
Lastly, I would encourage you to read the below book on Christ’s atonement, and whose sins He atoned for.
