“A Christian church in Texas hosted a drag event last weekend that was oprn to families, prompting protests from locals urging the attendees to “DEFEND PURITY, REJECT PERVERSION.”
The First United Methodist Church in Sherman, Texas became the venue for the May 13 LGBTQ event, after it was moved from its original location at nearby Pecan Grove Park.
The event, called “Pride Prom,” was billed by organizers as a “family-friendly drag show.” A poster for the event, which had the original venue on it, read, “Pride Prom. Be True To You. Saturday, May 13th, 8-11 PM.”
The poster noted the event would have “open mic karaoke,” the “family-friendly drag show” and that it would be hosted by Alex Gemini. The event was organized by Grayson County Pride, an organization representing the local LGBTQ community.
Reports noted that the venue changed last minute and was held at the “Mosaic Campus” of First United Methodist.” (Courtesy FoxNews.com)
Before I begin, please allow me to be honest with you.
I left the United Methodist Church at the age of 39, when I realized that, thanks to those in control of the denomination, whose headquarters was in the Northeast, some parts of the UMC were beginning to value secularism more than it did the Word of God.
How did I come to that conclusion?
I walked into a Sunday School class and a theology student was teaching out of a book titled, “Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalists”.
While I hated to leave the Choir Director whom I had sang under for 20 years, like Belshazzar, I saw the writing upon the wall.
That was 25 years ago.
Now, after a long journey down a road filled with Liberals’ “religion of social justice”, the United Methodist Church has paid for following the word of man instead of the Word of God by experiencing a mass exodus of their members, leading to the formation of a new Methodist Denomination.
A Christian “Church” who believes that the Bible is NOT the Word of God is not a CHRISTIAN Church,
It can call itself a Social Justice Center.
It can call itself a Tabernacle of Wokeness.
However, if you devalue the Bible, the Holy Scriptures which are a “two-edged sword” and the key to learning about the foundation of the Christian Faith, then you are studying modern culture and not the history of the Hebrew people and the House of David, from whose lineage came Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.
What has happened to the United Methodist Church has happened to every organization, religious or secular, which has embraced “Political Correctness” or as it is called nowadays “Wokeness.”
Catholics, Episcopalians, Lutherans, and even the Southern Baptists, are allowing popular culture to change their focus from God’s Word to man’s politics.
“Wokeness” has taken the place of “Righteousness”.
The rise of “Wokeness” within Christian Churches is something that is literally tearing apart the fabric of our country.
The only conclusion that I, as a Christian American can reach, is the fact that our Sovereign Nation is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE for its very soul.
Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.
My friends, I believe that we are fighting a war against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics are increasingly being accepted as normal behavior.
We see it everyday around us.
Churches used to be a place to refresh the soul and to experience the presence of the Holy Spirit through corporate worship.
Too many have become concert venues and political rallies.
Christians repent of their sins. They don’t celebrate them.
At least, they didn’t use to.
Now, they hold a “Family Friendly Pride Prom.”
