Entitlement & Accountability

Exposure, transparency, and accountability.

I have been sitting back and watching the dialogue online between those defending the voiceless and those defending sexual predators in the church. It seems that there are people that believe those who may hold a place in ministry deserve or may be entitled to a different level of treatment or consequences for their actions simply because they are ministers.

It would also seem these are some of the same people that are quick to quote for people outside of the ministry (i.e. PDiddy) Luke 17:2, " It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should [b]offend one of these little ones."

So, which one is it? Are we to expect that the sexual sins of a minister deserve more grace then someone like PDiddy? This begs the next question. Do we get to decide how the blood of Jesus is distrubuted? Are we then trying to take God's place as the executor of eternal judgement? Is that not the same thing satan tried? We saw where he ended up. YIKES!

We also need to call to question when a ministry consistently takes the side of the "alleged" sex predators/offenders and voices that they can be restored to ministry. What about consequences? Victims should never be silenced, bullied out of speaking, or dehumanized. There are consquences for our choices.

I would tell you that the above actions reflect the synagogues of satan and not the House of the Lord. We cannot serve two masters. I have recently had to step away from some unholy alliances. The Lord showed me that unholy alliances can be deadly. In all seriousness. God has been clear that judgment is coming for the house of the Lord FIRST.

I would encourage you today to shut down the social media time, tv time, secular music, and outside distractions. This is a time to consecrate ourselves to the Lord as a nation. 2 Chronicles 7:14. This is the only answer to saving our country. Create a prayer space in your closet or a place in your home. 

Give yourself over to God completely and watch what He will do.

For those of you who don't agree with this article and my respose to the church's cheap response to sexual perversion in the church...

Here's a reminder for you regarding last interview between Dr. James Dobson (JCD) and Ted Bundy (Ted):




 Do you deserve the punishment the state has inflicted upon you?

Ted: That’s a very good question. I don’t want to die; I won’t kid you. I deserve, certainly, the most extreme punishment society has. And I think society deserves to be protected from me and from others like me. That’s for sure. What I hope will come of our discussion is that I think society deserves to be protected from itself. As we have been talking, there are forces at loose in this country, especially this kind of violent pornography, where, on one hand, well-meaning people will condemn the behavior of a Ted Bundy while they’re walking past a magazine rack full of the very kinds of things that send young kids down the road to being Ted Bundys. That’s the irony.

I’m talking about going beyond retribution, which is what people want with me. There is no way in the world that killing me is going to restore those beautiful children to their parents and correct and soothe the pain. But there are lots of other kids playing in streets around the country today who are going to be dead tomorrow, and the next day, because other young people are reading and seeing the kinds of things that are available in the media today.

JCD: There is tremendous cynicism about you on the outside, I suppose, for good reason. I’m not sure there’s anything you could say that people would believe, yet you told me (and I have heard this through our mutual friend, John Tanner) that you have accepted the forgiveness of Jesus Christ and are a follower and believer in Him. Do you draw strength from that as you approach these final hours?

Ted: I do. I can’t say that being in the Valley of the Shadow of Death is something I’ve become all that accustomed to, and that I’m strong and nothing’s bothering me. It’s no fun. It gets kind of lonely, yet I have to remind myself that every one of us will go through this someday in one way or another.

JCD: It’s appointed unto man.

Ted: Countless millions who have walked this earth before us have gone through this, so this is just an experience we all share.

Until next time...
