Christian pastor lashes out at ‘liberal society’: Stoning gays is part of ‘the mindset of God’

Pastor Ben Bailey is a man with a vision.

And thank God he’ll never be able to fulfill that vision. According to the Pastor from McMinnville, Tennessee, the reason why society doesn’t stone LGBT people anymore — who he thinks is deserving — is because it’s “liberal.” And in a recent video, the pastor went on a tear, railing against that “liberal society.”

As the pastor of Central Church of Christ, Ben Bailey has a very important job: fighting the culture wars. Or, in this case, rearranging the deck chairs on the Conservative Titanic called “opposition to gay marriage.”

In a Sunday broadcast for The Gospel of Christ television program, Bailey attacked couples who were looking for churches with “relaxed and liberal views” … by which he means views in-tune with the millennium that we live in; quoth Pastor Bailey:

Things like women preaching, women leading in service, where homosexuals and gay marriage were accepted openly.

He continued, “They were just looking for something liberal. Something that didn’t criticize or condemn or didn’t have any hardcore standards on anything — anything goes type of mentality.”

He disagreed, and what followed was a 3:14 long temper tantrum, railing against the modern world for not caring about his religion, and about what God apparently wants:

He has a definite standard and it is not the liberal mindset that we see today. This book [the Bible] does not condone things like women preaching… Paul said I do not let a woman preach be in authority over a man, that’s not according to the Bible. If I’m out to please God, we don’t find things like that in the Bible.

I’m not out to please god. I don’t care about him or Paul. Paul is indistinguishable from a modern-day MRA troll, and his thoughts mean as much to me. Bailey’s just angry that he’s part of a generation that’s slowly fading into the background static of the universe.

He continued:

God does not approve of homosexuality or gay marriage. The scripture says… that is vile, unnatural and deserving of a penalty… It’s an abomination that under the Old Testament deserved stoning.”

And so, is our God, the God of Bible, wanting us to go somewhere where it’s liberal, relaxed views and anything goes. No, that’s the effect of a very liberal society. And we need to make sure that such is not the idea or the mindset of God.

Your God, pastor. Even if I did believe in a God, they’d have nothing in common with the theological abortion you worship.

  1. Switching from one indoctrination system to another is the easiest way to get out of your "old" religion. But still you continue to participate in an equal evil system that steals people's freedom. This guy is probably just afraid of his own insecure feelings towards his own gender. You see it a lot. Fighting fear through extremist thoughts based on the opinion of someone that has lived in another era and is dead by now.

  2. JESUS-OF-NAZARETH-TEACHING-ON-JUDGING-SEX-CRIME-EXPLAINED

    Yikes,… i knew what you meant. And yet, it too was a bit obtuse. Apology if i show to be dim-witted, no offence nor malice intended.

    The closing statements of a piece,["Judge-Not",Apparently-Means-Do-Not-Offend*',2017,HelloChristian] was on point though it would seem;

    "Those who have been called to preach, much like the prophets of old, will confront compromise, condemn social digression, and powerfully denounce sin in the hope of reconciling man to God—they speak the truth in love. However, a spirit of compassion and understanding should move us, not judgmentalism. It’s often not what we say but how we say it that tilts the scale.

    "Admittedly, I’ve failed in this area because I did not exercise grace at opportune times. We should not excuse sin in exchange for tolerance—extending grace does not mean approving of sinful behavior, but it does mean extending compassion."…

  3. Not judging seems the secondary directive in the philosophy and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, if i am not mistaken. Correct, me if i am wrong.

    Assuming the prime directive is,'love one another as I have loved you,…greater love has no one than to love another as I have loved you, even to the point of death. By this all will know that you are My disciple,'[no citation required,since you are a learned man of the book].

    The secondary directive, it would seem in my view is referenced in Jesus actual conduct toward those he loved,[agape',of all]. When the experts in the theological doctrine said,'Thou bearest record of Thyself; Thy record is not true,'[john,c.VIII:v.13]. Jesus seemed to have made it clear about record and judgement;'Though I bear record of Myself, My record is true: For I know whence I came, and whiter I go; But ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go,'[14]. This would seem on face value about coming and going as in locale, but like all His teachings, could it have meant,'I come from a place you do not know, from Someone you do not know, and I will go to a places and do things I will be led to go, which you cannot know.'

    In reading further in this context of right-judgement and record,Jesus makes clear;*'Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no one,'[15]. 'And yet if I judge, My judgement is true: For I am not alone, but I and The Father that sent Me,'[16]*.

  4. Thamiel Rosenkreuz is a coward. He will delete comments on ifyouonlynews.com if they call into question some obvious mistake he has made. F-cking pathetic.

  5. Sir, you forgot the part where we are supposed to love our neighbor as ourselves and you are not supposed to judge. I see none of that in your sermon. It must be awful to carry all that hate in your heart. But it is never too late for you to come from a place of love and not hate. I pray find a way to embrace anyone around you regardless of where they are. I pray you will help people find god, and not turn them away. Let that sink in for a minute, Pastor Ben Bailey. A Gay person of faith is praying for you! And that, sir, is how you Christian. https://www.facebook.com/Theflagandthefish/

  6. Basing anything on the Bible is like basing it on Gulliver’s Travels. Extremely absurd and foolish unless you can produce evidence that the overwhelming scientific evidence for evolution, etc., is wrong.

  7. jesus never condems Gay people and jesus is the end of the law. let the one without sin cast the first stone!!
    There's enough hate in the world already, why would someone want to add to that hate? what about love, what about compassion?
    If God hates gays, then anwser me this, why is there so many of us? why would God create a kingdom for all people if most people were going to burn in hell??? Wouldn't that be a waste of time?
    If people think its OK to stone Gay people to death, is that not going against Gods commandments " thou shall not murder" ( its abit contradictory if you ask me)
    People have to take into consideration that the Bible was written many years ago, who's to say that man hasn't added to the scriptures and made it the way they wanted it, nobody knows. Don't get me wrong, I do have faith, I do beleive in God but my God is a loving God and yes I'm a gay christian. Do I beleive i'm going to burn in hell for loving someone of the same gender, the anwser is NO. Thank you for taking the time to read this and God bless you all…….

  8. Thank you to all who expressed the love of God even to the hateful . It is so hard not to hate people like this.it is said to love the sinner and hate the sin. I can’t go around gritting my teeth all the time. I have stood up in defence of the gay, transgender and bisexual….whatever. All are loved and can stand with God.
