Preachers are Ordained by God to do His work, not Society’s


Brother Mark shared this video of Pastor Greg Lock3 on his Facebook page, and it needs to be shared here too. Those of us willing to preach the word of God are in small numbers. When we left the United Methodist Church in 2019 and founded MCF, we left behind a denomination divided into factions battling each other over scripture and homosexuality. Progressives in the UMC were calling Traditionalists every name in the book including racists, misogynists, haters of mankind, and unwelcoming of gays. None of that was true, but it was the liberal narrative Progressives adopted in hopes of winning the support of less than 4.5% of the population. Brother Mark just finished a series on “human sexuality,” last month with only one negative comment. I have a thought for Pastors in the United States, “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Speak God’s word, not the words that will fill your pews.

Helpful definitions:

  • Traditionalist – Believe the entire Bible is the divine Word of God, including Leviticus 18:22
  • Progressives – Support ordination of gay clergy and same sex marriage in the church. They believe parts of the Bible and in some cases entire books should be set aside as irrelevant in today’s society.
  • Human Sexuality – Progressive code word for the LGBTQIA+ community.

    I do not know why out churches began caving in to the pressures of government during the so-called pandemic. I do not know why churches ceased in=person services. I do not know why ministers, pastors, bishops and others in the church heirarchy decided to live in fear. I do not know why they ceased providing the word of God to their congregations. Jesus would not have appeared on television at the Sermon on the Mount. He would not have screened the believers to see if they were healthy enough to attend. The founders focused on freedom of religion for a reason. During the past 12 months our church leaders have failed miserably; have absconded for no good reason. Shame on them. The church is the people. The church leaders seem to have forgotten that. Churches have to be open whether or not anyone attends. Virtual services and virtual connection is a wonderful means of connecting with those who can not attend. It is not a substitute for fellowship Shame on you for allowing your fear to conquer the love of Jesus Christ. Shame. Shame.

      When churches become more of a business with corporate structures and myriad levels a management, than houses of worship and fellowship, they can and do sometimes fall very short of the glory of God.

        I think the best example of this occurred in the structure of the UMC, which is in the midst of splitting.
