Um… that’s a bit ironic, Pastor Steven

So, Pastor Steven who only preaches the “truth” of the Gospel of Jesus Christ has this up:

Ironically, this quote “first appears in “Halley’s Bible Handbook” (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 1927, 1965), p. 18.”

Suppose he did convert as myth tells us and his conversion was in 1818 or thereabouts, you know, before the Trial of Tears. But, if such a conversion did take place, then this destroys the historical Jackson who was a life long Presbyterian. Jackson is actually recorded as speaking about his faith twice, once in remarking of his denomination and once on his death bed to assure his family of their heavenly reunion.

Not to mention Jackson was  Freemason.

More than this, however, Jackson mocked the religionists of his day — people like Steven Andrews, I am sure.

  1. But OF COURSE Pastor Steven isn’t going to mention all those other pesky facts, because it doesn’t help his argument.

    Remember, for fundamentalists, you only quote the verses that you can make to SUPPORT your preconceived argument. You simply skip those verses that say exactly the opposite of what you’re arguing.

    When the verse supports what you already believe, simply cite “revealed Scripture from the will of God. It’s plain and simple. Our priorities should be God’s priorities, as spelled out in the Bible,” and wholesome adages like that. HOWEVER, when the verse does NOT support what you already believe, or if the biblical claim has been so thoroughly debunked by archaeology and science (like the Exodus and/or Six-Day Creation), then just cite ancient cultural context and the necessary, God-given ability to rationalize and reinterpret and update ancient beliefs as necessary. Or just dismiss them as not important or not germane to the central core of the Gospel. Because in THESE cases where the verse does NOT support what you already believe (like slavery, or the suppression of women, or the Exodus, or genocide, or the conquest narratives, or six-day Creation), then it is OK to update and/or ignore the social commands of antiquity.

    Just not when it’s about being gay.
