"Evangelical" Christianity in America is dramatically changing. Popular spiritual leaders such as Rick Warren and Joel Osteen are abandoning traditional belief structures and are saying things on national television that would have been unthinkable for an "evangelical" minister to say just 20 or 30 years ago. But are they telling the truth?
For example, a few nights ago on Larry King Live, Rick Warren shocked the evangelical Christian community across America with his comments about gay marriage. Warren declared that he is not an "anti-gay marriage activist" and that he "never will be."
In fact, Warren seemed completely ashamed of Proposition 8 on Larry King Live. He emphatically told King that he never once gave Proposition 8 an endorsement:
During the whole Proposition 8 thing, I never once went to a meeting, never once issued a statement, never -- never once even gave an endorsement in the two years Prop 8 was going.
Hmmm, that's strange.
Last October, just weeks before the election Warren told his congregation this:
"Now let me say this really clearly: we support Proposition 8 -- and if you believe what the Bible says about marriage, you need to support Proposition 8."
Does that sound like an endorsement to you?
It sounds like one to me.
But now Rick Warren sounds completely ashamed for ever having any support for Proposition 8. In fact, he told Larry King that he actually has apologized for supporting it:
I wrote to all my gay friends -- the leaders that I knew -- and actually apologized to them.
Later in the same interview King asked him about the Iowa decision to legalize gay marriage. This is the exchange that occurred:
KING: All right. Do you, therefore, criticize or not comment on the Iowa court decision to permit gay marriage?
WARREN: Yes. I'm -- I'm totally oblivious to -- to what -- that's not even my agenda. My agenda is two things.
Rick Warren, who some call "the next Billy Graham", says that it is "not even my agenda" to even give an opinion on the legalization of gay marriage.
When asked about President Barack Obama, Warren had this to say:
I think he is a -- he's a good leader.
Warren is not the only evangelical leader who is openly supporting Barack Obama. The following is an exchange that happened recently on the Larry King Live show when Joel and Victoria Osteen appeared as guests:
Larry King: Since you were last on, we have sworn in our first African-American president. What are your impressions [of Barack Obama]?
Joel Osteen: Well, I think he's doing a great job. I'm impressed with his skill, his calmness, his just strength under pressure. These are tough times for him.
King: And you, Victoria?
Victoria Osteen: I've been really impressed. In fact, I've been impressed [with] the first lady. She stepped up, and she's done a remarkable job.
He's doing a great job?
We should be impressed with Obama?
Impressed that he overturned the ban on federal funding for research on baby human embryos?
Impressed that he is the most rabidly pro-abortion president in the history of the United States?
Since 1973, more than 40 MILLION innocent babies have been chopped up and slaughtered in the American abortion mills.
What the United States has done is beyond imagination. The reality is that we have dissected our babies, burned them alive, sucked their brains out and yet the American people seem to care about this issue less than ever.
How far down the toilet have we gone as a society when we kill about a million babies a year, and even evangelical "leaders" do not get upset about it anymore?
Is there any hope?
Well, Barack Obama is so rabidly pro-abortion that he even voted AGAINST a bill that would have provided medical care for infants that survived an abortion procedure. Even Hillary Clinton was not in favor of that.
For a full examination of what President Obama believes regarding abortion watch the following video.....
It is time for all Americans to wake up to the horror of abortion.
Let's take a really quick look at one very cruel method of abortion which the Freedom of Choice Act would once again legalize.....
Five steps to a partial birth abortion:
1) Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's legs with forceps.
2) The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
3) The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head.
4) The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the skull.
5) The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.
But "ministers" like Rick Warren and Joel Osteen have no problem with this.
They are too busy enjoying the big money and the bright lights of television.
