Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20
I thought I had seen it all. Surely there is a limit to their behavior. But apparently not, and this example shows you how far some will continue to go to bring down the Church of the Nazarene to the gutter it seems. The following example is a dialogue on the Sacramental Nazarenes Facebook page, a group which also seems to be promoting a closer connection with Roman Catholicism. The discussion is of an article titled “Eucharist Is How Jesus Makes Love To His Church.” Really?
When you read the article, please read with caution, and you may not even be able to get through the whole thing. It is blasphemy, plain and simple.
Have we come to this point now where “Christians” on this Nazarene group are actually going along with this as if it is a good thing? And notice that not one member has yet stepped in to rebuke such blasphemous talk. And some people thing we are crazy and are making much ado about nothing, when we warn you that the Church of the Nazarene is becoming an apostate denomination! Where is the leadership of the Nazarene denomination who are members of this group? Don’t they see anything wrong with this, and why have they not called out these people for their blasphemous talk?
I’ll let you be the judge of this. Please note some of the Nazarene leaders who are members of this group:
Ken Stanford, D.S. of New England District;
David Busic, General Superintendent;
Jon Middendorf, Sr. Pastor, Oklahoma First Church;
Roger Hahn, professor at Nazarene Theological Seminary;
William Selvidge, Assoc. professor at Nazarene Theological Seminary;
Dean Blevins, professor at Nazarene Theological Seminary;
Harold Raser, professor at Nazarene Theological Seminary;
Hans Deventer, NazNet moderator;
Doug Van Nest, D.S. Southwest Ohio District; Peter Rae, Dean at NTC, Manchester;
Henry Spaulding II, President, Mount Vernon Nazarene;
Carla Sunberg, Co-D.S. of East Ohio District;
Mary Paul, V.P. of Spiritual Development, Point Loma Nazarene;
Brent Peterson, Northwest Nazarene University;
Jason Rowinski, Sr. Pastor, Shawnee Nazarene Church;
If you know any of them, perhaps you can ask them why they have not called out these folks for their blasphemous references to our Lord Jesus Christ. Even a true Roman Catholic who believes in a false gospel, if he saw this discussion, would call these people out for their outrageous blasphemy towards the Lord. If any of these men and women have seen this post and have not said anything, they ought to be ashamed of themselves. And if anyone who is a member in this group has any wisdom, they would run far away from this group if it continues with this kind of foolishness.
Have they lost their minds?
