Let us pray that God does a work in Dennis Terry’s life

My friends, this is my family’s former home church. My grandfather was deacon there, my mother is buried there. I have friends who go there. I have criticized it before. I will not cease from my efforts. Dennis Terry is not what he claims he is, but if members begin to question, they will be removed. Until someone removes him, he will attempt to fill Jerry Falwell’s shoes.

“I don’t care what the liberals say, I don’t care what the naysayers say, this nation was founded as a Christian nation…There is only one God and his name is Jesus. I’m tired of people telling me that I can’t say those words.. Listen to me, If you don’t love America, If you don’t like the way we do things I have one thing to say – GET OUT. We don’t worship Buddha, we don’t worship Mohammad, we don’t worship Allah, we worship God, we worship God’s son Jesus Christ.”

Terry is no stranger to outlandish statements about those whom he deems less than human. He doesn’t sound orthodox, nor American.

This nation was not intended to be a theocracy, but Terry and even Santorum would seek to make it so. This country will lose its soul in these attempts, to make it a theocracy, and so will we.

I think of people like┬áMuhammad, Elvis, others… who had they submitted to Christ, had they taken their talents and passion for those talents to service of the Church… I ponder how different this world may be today. I wonder, if Terry took his passion for inflammatory, and wrong, rhetoric, and turned it to Christ, how better might Baton Rouge – how better this world, may be.

What’s wrong with the Churches in America? Greenwell Springs Baptist Church

A few weeks ago, Greenwell Springs Baptist Church hosted a town hall – a TOWN HALL. Whether Liberal or Conservative issues, Churches should not be involved in politics. We are called to be holy – apart, separate – and yet pastors around the country are holding these things.

Now, I have a few friends that attend here, and I have expressed my opinion – and will do so again. Christians are called to be separated from this world, and frankly, I cannot say it any better than the unknown author of the Epistle to Diognetus.

Some of the videos of the event can be found here. Frankly, it sickens me to see politicians politicking next to the cross. No, Christ did not die to give you political freedom nor to keep you from getting a national health care reform. Below is the letter which Tony Perkins sent out.

Tony Perkins:

Last night I was in Baton Rouge participating in a town hall meeting that drew over 800 people to my home church. Dr. Dennis Terry, the senior pastor at Greenwell Springs Baptist, moderated the nearly three hour meeting which included a brief exhortation on what the Bible has to say about health care by Rev. Dick Metz, another local pastor. Those in attendance heard introductory comments by Senator David Vitter, Dr. Al Krostroski with the Louisiana Right to Life, local family physician Dr. Kyle Dean and me.

Although Sen. Mary Landrieu sent a representative, like many of the Congressmen and Senators who support the President’s health care reform effort, continues to avoid open forums with the public. The questions and statements from the audience were clear and on point. People are concerned over the government stepping into health care, but their biggest worry is what this effort represents and where it will lead — more costly government that will grasp more control over our lives.

Even the young people are connecting the dots. A 15 year-old boy inquired about the President’s Science Czar, John Holdren, and whether or not the radical ideas he expressed in the 1970s, such as involuntary sterilization as a means of population control, could eventually find their way into the President’s proposed government health care system. Make no mistake about it, President Obama’s plan poses serious moral and ethical threats to the nation, but I am encouraged by what I am seeing all across our country. Americans have had enough and they are speaking out like I’ve not witnessed in my nearly 20 years in the political realm. Keep speaking out and encourage the leadership of your church to host a town hall meet.

One of the things which is immediately wrong with this – whether or not you might agree with Tony Perkins and David Vitter (you do remember David Vitter right?) is that they have taken time away from actually preaching the Gospel – although I have wonder if they know what that means – to listen to propaganda. No one, it seems, has learned the lesson from Nazi Germany where the Churches were used to secure support for Hitler.

Keep politics off the pulpit and out of the Church house.
