Fables in the Seminaries and Pulpits :: By Daymond Duck

I wish everyone a blessed Mother’s Day.

On May 3, 2023, a Decision Magazine article was posted on Harbingers Daily about Aaron Edwards, a theology professor in England, who tweeted that homosexuality is “invading the Church.”

Edwards said, “This is a ‘Gospel issue,’ by the way. If sin is no longer sin, we no longer need a Savior.”

His statement caused a backlash that got him suspended and then fired.

Jesus was addressing a group of Pharisees when He said, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not” (John 8:44-45).

Edwards told the truth, but his religious superiors chose to reject the truth and believe a lie.

Concerning money, Jesus said, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other” (Luke 16:13).

When people who do not know what the Bible says contradict it, I suppose it can be called a sin of ignorance.

But Church leaders who deliberately reject the truth (and deliberately promote a lie) are serving Satan.

This is a strong statement, but those who operate in the name of God and pervert the truth (are teaching a fable).

They are false teachers because they are deliberately misinterpreting the Scriptures.

They do not have to do it, but they are deliberately choosing to do it.

Their teaching on homosexuality is like, or the same as, those of the atheists at the World Economic Forum.

Edwards is right: If sin is no longer sin, we no longer need Jesus.

I will add that if the Bible and the Ten Commandments are wrong about lying, we no longer need the Bible and the Ten Commandments, and we no longer need Church leaders that are willing to lie in the pulpit while standing in front of, or behind, a beautiful cross.

Church leaders that do not believe the Bible should earn their mammon (money; wealth) another way.

They would be wise to read what God did to Ananias and Sapphira for lying to the early Church (Acts 5:1-11).

He will not allow them to get away with binding or restricting the Word of God on earth forever.

His judgment will come upon the earth.

Paul said to Timothy (and to us), “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry” (II Tim. 4:1-5).

The religious leaders that fired Edwards turned away from the truth because they prefer to train people to teach a fable.

Here are some reasons to believe that God’s judgment could be close.

One, concerning deceit: on May 1, 2023, it was reported that a poll of 1,002 adults on Mar. 30-Apr. 3, 2023, found that nearly half of U.S. adults say they have little to no trust in the media.

Most are concerned about misinformation and believe that America’s politically polarized media is doing more harm than good.

Two, concerning deceit and the deliberate decline of America: for weeks, the U.S. has been preparing for hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants to storm the U.S. border with Mexico when Title 42 ends on May 10, 2023.

On May 9, 2023, it was reported that Biden’s Dept. of Homeland Security issued a press release that announced where agents would be posted to arrest dangerous illegal invaders.

Put another way (in my words), the Biden administration has issued a press release that tells dangerous invaders where to cross our border if they want to get into the U.S. without being arrested.

Three, concerning a normalization agreement between Saudi Arabia and Israel: on May 5, 2023, All Arab News reported that U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said he believes that if the Biden administration will try really hard, they can wrap up a “truly historic, game-changing deal” “before the 2024 (presidential) campaign gets into full swing.”

Four, concerning hyperinflation and a global economic collapse: on May 7, 2023, it was reported that California has defaulted on $18.6 billion of debt.

Understand that the default of a state in the U.S. is different from the default of the U.S., and it is different from a global economic collapse.

Nevertheless, it indicates that there are major economic problems in the U.S. despite what the Biden administration and the Federal Reserve officials say.

(Note: It is common knowledge that several large U.S. banks have collapsed, layoffs are increasing, the housing industry is in trouble, and there are major problems with the economy.)

(Note: On May 8, 2023, it was reported that banking problems are not just confined to the U.S. Depositors, concerned about a banking collapse in the UK and EU, have withdrawn billions of dollars from banks there.)

(Note: On May 8, 2023, it was reported that Michael Snyder, author, founder of theeconomiccollapseblog.com, and frequent guest on major radio and TV programs, is predicting that the banking crisis is going to get worse.)

(My opinion: If history is approaching the end of the age, and I believe it is, a global banking crisis is exactly what the Bible teaches. This will eventually lead to a new banking system with a globally trackable currency.)

Five, excessive government spending (and the printing of money with nothing to back it up) is one of the main reasons investors are concerned about the U.S., UK, and EU economies.

Nevertheless, on May 8, 2023, the Biden administration insisted that Congress has a “constitutional duty” to raise America’s debt ceiling.

Pres. Biden wants to go on another spending binge with no strings attached.

Six, concerning hatred for Israel at the end of the age: on May 3, 2023, Islamic terrorists fired more than 100 rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israel.

On May 9, 2023, 40 Israeli aircraft retaliated by striking targets in the Gaza Strip. Three of Islamic Jihad’s top officials were killed, and the terrorists are threatening to make Israel pay a price.

(Update: On May 10, 2023, Palestinians fired scores of rockets from Gaza into Israel. Israeli leaders said the escalation will be met with a decisive response.)

(Note: Israel will not have peace until they accept Jesus as their Messiah. Sadly, they will accept the Antichrist first and wind up going through the Tribulation Period.)

Seven, concerning world government: on May 8, 2023, it was reported that the U.S. House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed documents from two groups (the Global Alliance for Responsible Media and the World Federation of Advertisers) associated with the World Economic Forum (WEF) that the committee believes show efforts to censor unfavorable content in the media and online.

The House Judiciary Committee requested the information in Mar. 2023, but the two groups have not complied, so the committee has issued subpoenas.

As I understand it, the House Judiciary Committee believes these two groups associated with the WEF are trying to stop speech and reporting in America that is critical of the WEF effort to establish a world government.

(Note: On May 8, 2023, the Biden administration refused a New York Post request for one of its reporters to cover a Biden press conference on airline policies. About 20 empty seats can be seen in photos of the event. Biden appears to dislike the Post because it was the publication that broke the story about Hunter’s laptop.)

(Note: During the Tribulation Period, the Antichrist and False Prophet will use the Mark of the Beast to control what people believe and say about world government.)

Eight, concerning world government and corruption in the 2020 presidential election: on May 10, 2020, it was reported that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) may have been involved in getting 51 people to sign a letter saying Hunter Biden’s laptop has “the earmarks of a Russian information operation.”

Biden used the letter in his campaign to deceive voters about Hunter’s activities.

If the CIA was involved, and the U.S. House of Representatives Oversight Committee appears to have evidence that they were, then:

> The CIA helped elect a man whose slogan was “Build Back Better” (tear down America and rebuild it in a New World Order or a Great Reset) and defeat a man whose slogan was “Make America Great Again” (let us keep America’s sovereignty and make her great again).

> The CIA knew the laptop was Hunter’s, the CIA helped create a lie to influence the election, the CIA enlisted people to sign onto that lie, Biden used the CIA lie to get votes, and now the sovereignty of the U.S. is at stake.

> The way I see it, the CIA illegally corrupted the election, America has been betrayed, America’s sovereignty is about gone, and the worst event in history (the rise of the Antichrist and the Tribulation Period) is staring the lost in the face (Matt. 24:22).

Finally, are you Rapture Ready?

If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
