Posted on 04/09/2013 5:17:16 AM PDT by scottfactor
It comes as no surprise to see the deep Scriptural ignorance in our world today. After all, many people have turned away from the solid foundation of truth found in Gods Word. Many people, even some who claim to be Christian, rarely even open a Bible, much less study one. But, when a man comes in the name of Jesus and goes on national radio and denies Jesus knowledge and teachings, it is a chilling thing to hear.
On Saturday afternoon, I heard a rerun segment of Sean Hannitys nationally syndicated radio show on which he had two guests taking opposites sides of the marriage issue. The man who was asserting that homosexuals should be allowed to marry was Reverend Oliver White of the Grace Community United Church of Christ in St. Paul, Minnesota. Mr. White recently lost his church building and most of his congregation because he chose to support the radical homosexual movements war to redefine marriage.
Audio of portions of the exchanges between Hannity, CNS News Terry Jeffrey and Mr. White are posted on Breitbarts Big Journalism website.
Mr. White made a boatload of outrageous statements, but one in particular stands out for its shocking claims about Jesus. After telling Mr. Jeffrey that he believes God endowed people of the same sex with the right to be married, Mr. Jeffrey then asked him if he disagrees with Jesus teachings about marriage being between a man and a woman, and Mr. White dropped this profoundly ignorant, blasphemous statement:
I dont disagree with Jesus Christ, but what I do say, that if Jesus were alive today, I think that he would be more inclined to say, You know, I didnt know it all. I believe that the Jesus who also said love your neighbor as yourself would not discriminate against a person on the basis of their sexual orientation.
This is breathtaking. If Jesus were alive today? Did Mr. White miss the parts of the Bible that declare Jesus is very much alive and well today?
Did Mr. White miss the declaration that all things were made through Jesus? Does Mr. White foolishly believe that the God of all creation would say, I didnt know it all?!
How did Mr. White miss the part of Gods WordALL of which is Jesus Wordwhere Jesus, who is God, says that he does not change his mind, that he is the same yesterday, today and forever?
Is Mr. White so truly ignorant as to think that Jesus is unaware of the state of America today, that Jesus did not see todays America from before the dawn of time?
Does Mr. White really fool himself into believing that Gods Word (of which Jesus is the embodiment) that describes all manner of sexual sins, including homosexuality, would prescribe homosexualswho define themselves by their sina right to marry?
As for whether or not Jesus would discriminate based on sexual orientation, is Mr. White unaware of the ultimate Day of Discrimination when Jesus will separate his sheep from Satans goats?
The fact is that God hates sin, and encouraging your neighbor in his sin is not loving him as yourself. God tells us to reprove the works of darkness, not give them a thumbs-up!
This man, Oliver White, is treading on very dangerous ground. He is declaring himself to be a teacher of Gods Word standing in the name of Jesus, but he is a devilish liar. As the Bible tells us in James 3, those who presume to be teachers will be held to a higher standard. Those who deceive and lead many astray, while posing as messengers of Christ, will receive greater condemnation.
I have no doubt that our nation is falling under the weight of its collective sins. America is reaping what it has sown, and false teachers like Mr. White are flourishing with their poisonous messages in this time of great apostasy and rampant Biblical illiteracy. Even though there is a gigantic amount of Scriptural ignorance out there, we should not leave such a glaring example as this one unchallenged. Its not as though Mr. White is just some run-of-the-mill commentator; he presents himself as a Christian minister. That makes his slanderous words against the Lord much more egregious.
With our Supreme Court one breath away from lawlessly, senselessly and impossibly redefining marriage to accommodate those who define themselves by their sexual sin, it is as important as ever to boldly speak the truth to such gruesome lies as those spoken by Reverend Oliver White.

Sola scriptura. All discussion should stop right there. Divination. It’s not ignorance. It’s by design.
Just because someone holds a degree that states they are licensed to preach or be a pastor — doesn’t mean they should...much like the “first lady” holding - did did hold - a license to be a lawyer in Illinois -— she’s not giving legal advice anymore - and the advice she is pandering out should be taken with a ton of salt!
Can’t imagine standing in the final Judgement trying to rationalize the altering and promoting that which is against Gods original design of marriage. Very bad place to be. Why so many are unhinging their faith on this ridiculous gay marriage nonsense is astounding.
Where is the lightning bolt?
There’s nothing shocking here. Mainline Protestants, and plenty of Catholics, ceased to believe in the Incarnation a long time ago. They do not believe that the preaching of Jesus reveals the mind of God, because they do not believe that Jesus had a divine as well as a human mind.
You are surely not speaking for this Catholic, or any that I know.
this has always bothered me. Why do they bother with calling themselves Christians?
You and I can only judge by a person’s works, but God will not be fooled.
Another false teacher. God will deal with him if he does not repent his sin of this abomination according to the Lord. He is walking on thin ice that falls into hell.
How many heresies are wrapped up in this one statement?
1. "If Jesus was alive today" Denies the Trinity
2. "If Jesus was alive today" Denies the eternality of Jesus
3. "You know, I didnt know it all." Professes to know more than Jesus
4. "I dont disagree with Jesus Christ" Doublespeak akin to Satan in the Garden
He’s a universalist unitarian piece of trash. And he also lost his church! haha. Good. Let them all lose their churches, for they have defiled them. God’s word is God’s word. To deny God’s omniscience is like denying God himself.
Apparently “Reverend” White believes “more will be revealed later”.
Today’s column PING!
Of course, I am speaking of neo-Arians, who do not believe in the Trinity, and do not believe that any Divine Person ever became man.
