According to scripture Ted Haggard can no longer be a preacher because he does not have a good testimony to those outside the body of Christ. At the same time he can be a teacher if he has truly repented. But according to scripture he can no longer Pastor a church which he has decided to do anyway. He’s now the pastor of st. James Church in Colorado Springs.
Christ is indeed forgiving but there are consequences to sin. If he had never been a pastor there might be room for him to become one but since he was a pastor there are prohibitions in Scripture that deny him to lead a Church. Plus he now says he does not believe in faith alone as Ephesians 2:8-9 describes. He takes what was written for Israel in James over the gospel of grace. Another reason why he should not be in the pulpit is that he now believes in faith and works. He has turned his back on grace alone not of works lest anyone should boast.
Worse still Haggard now believes in homosexual marriage. He also says that he is now bisexual and that is also something scripture forbids. That is what he said he repented of along with his use of drugs. Haggard does not belong in the pulpit. He preaches for what the Bible is against. Again he has been taken captive by Satan to do his will. He needs our prayers.
Can a fallen pastor regain his Pulpit again according to the Bible? NO! To be a pastor it is one strike and out because you have to have a good testimony to those who are outside. Jim Bakker does not have a good testimony to those outside the body of Christ. Heritage Park USA bilked believers out of millions of dollars. Jim Bakker went to prison and once out went right back to his vomit again. He now sells survival food and Survival equipment.
I have sinned was Jimmy Swaggart’s confession for having sex with prostitutes. He also does not belong in the pulpit again.
Ted Haggard had sexual relations with another man and considers himself bisexual. But, like the others, is preaching again. It would seem the Pentecostals I have a different Bible than I have.
These are the qualifications for a Biblical pastor. Jim Bakker, Ted Haggard, and Jimmy Swaggart all fail this test. Can they still teach? Absolutely but they cannot preach. And they do anyway. Pentecostal seem to set up their own rules over that of scripture. From whom much is given much is required. All three also are greedy for money. If faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God why aren’t these pastors on radio Which is far less expensive then television? Do I hear a witness?
Man’s finite mind cannot fully grasp hold of what makes up the Triune God. There is ample evidence in scripture to support this although groups like The Unitarians, Christadelphians, are Jehovah’s Witnesses have a difficult time grasping. All three reject the Personhood of the Holy Spirit who is the guide to all truth according to John 16:13. What happens when you add cream and sugar to coffee? The three become one cup of coffee. And as a Buddhist friend Buddhist friend once told me that if youpour a glass of milk and add chocolate syrup and cinnamon to the milk the three become one. Christadelphians are like the Ethiopian eunuch who was reading Isaiah 53 but not comprehending it. The Holy Spirit dispatched Philip to him who guided him into the truth of Jesus Christ. The aforementioned 3 groups also need a guide to comprehend the Triune God. It was God who sent Jesus Christ to mankind and in turn Jesus Christ sent the Holy Spirit to mankind after his departure.
The Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost makeup the Triune God and these three are one. Jesus said that he and the father were one in John 10:30. John 1:1 says is that in the beginning was the word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. John 1:14 adds and the word became flesh and dwelt Among Us. How can Christadelphians deny this? Isaiah 9:16 clearly states that Jesus Christ is the Everlasting Father and the Mighty God.
Who is the “us” In this passage?
Who was the us and our in these passages? It is purposely mentioned three times for the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit for those with Discerning ears and eyes. I believe the Christadelphians are spiritually blind and somewhat deaf. They here but lack comprehension of what they hear.
I prefer the evidence of scripture even over that statement. I pray that the Christadelphians can grow into this understanding. Currently, like the one time Apostle Paul, are found to be kicking against the goads.
Such are deceitful workers transforming themselves into Apostles of Christ and no wonder
Therefore it is no great thing if Satan transformed his ministers into ministers of righteousness. Did you catch that? Satan has his ministers and here they are. If the blind lead the blind both will fall into a ditch and those are the words of Jesus Christ. Have you ever heard this verse John 8:32? You shall know the truth and the truth will make you free. But how many know the previous verse from John 8:31? IF you abide in my words you are my disciples indeed. I can tell you this that Satan’s ministers rarely abide in his word. It would hold them back from their deception.
Pastors of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself. Did you notice in the video the congregations of these pastors from Satan? That is part of the problem. The congregation is biblically ignorant and proud of it. No one challenges these phonies. So they get away with it laughing all the way to the bank. From such withdraw yourself but not your money. Jesus said, you cannot serve God and money. The Apostle Paul said, when I preach the gospel I may present the Gospel of Jesus Christ without charge so that I will not abused my authority in the gospel. Satan’s ministers hate those verses of scripture. And so should you!
I have a wonderful video for you today about end time deception. In the Church Will show you the methods That apostate churches are using to snare both You and your money into captivity. Imposters Are growing worse and worse, Deceiving and being deceived.
