WATCH: National Baptist Fellowship of Concerned Pastors Press Conference + Q&A

The National Baptist Fellowship of Concerned Pastors stands against the American Baptist College (ABC) in Nashville, Tennessee, for inviting a “married” lesbian bishop to speak at the school’s annual Garnett-Nabrit Lecture Series taking place this week.

The pastors called on the school’s president, Dr. Forrest Harris, to account for what he’s done.

In case you missed yesterday’s post with a video of the press conference, we’ve embedded a better quality video that includes questions and answers.

A few quotes:

“It is time in the life of the church to once again become a battleship. A lesbian bishop preaching at a Baptist college is evidence of the gates of hell assailing against the church, but the gates of hell will not prevail against the church…We’ve come to Nashville so that it would not be recorded in the annals of history that a lesbian bishop spoke to our precious Baptist students for two consecutive years, and no one raised an objection.” — Pastor Dwight McKissic

“[W]e have a concern for this institution. The American Baptist College has historically been connected to and supported by the National Baptist Convention USA, an organization, which on more than one occasion, has addressed this very issue of same-sex marriage through statements affirming marriage as between one man and one woman, in much the same way as Jesus affirms marriage as between one man and one woman as He addresses the topic in Matthew 19:3-16. Just as we have no right to rearrange the definition of marriage given by Christ Himself, the American Baptist College has no right or authority to teach or endorse a doctrine or position other than that of this convention.” — Pastor Robert White

“I suggest that the biblical marriage espoused in Scripture is the framework for a strong society. And as we look in our society today, it is sight and sound that we definitely need structure and foundation…When we look at the biblical institution of marriage, we see that it formed the framework for security, for safety, and for work.” — Pastor Patrick McGrew

During the Q&A, someone asked was it possible to be a good Christian and support homosexual “marriage.” (Could a good Christian support the sin of murder? Perhaps that’s too obvious. How about the sin of lying? Or thievery?)

In response, Dr. Ronnie Goines said, no, it’s not possible.

“I think to support same-sex marriage, it goes against the very crux of Christianity, which is love. How can I love you and watch you destroy [yourself]? This is not something against people who are in that lifestyle. This is to have…some sense of right and wrong.” Dr. Goines said this issue is like wearing a T-shirt that reads, “I’m a sinner, and proud of it.”

Star Parker made an important point after a reporter asked what their response would be to people who say the push to normalize homosexuality “mirrors” the 1960s-era civil rights movement. She said looking at Martin Luther King, Jr’s movement, there wasn’t one eternal truth he tried to turn upside down.

King also believed in the worldview of the founding documents, “where we call upon these eternal truths. The homosexual community and activists are turning the civil rights movement on its head. It’s the exact opposite of what the civil rights movement embraced.”

    These professors need a lesson in humility. Show them the work of Ivan Panin (Bible Numerics), Dell Washburn (Theomatics) and the ever current Bible Code of Equidistant Letter Sequences that even with the massive computer facilities of the NSA could not duplicate. The Equidistant Letter Sequencing are being (even more) found throughout the Old Testament. They are following Secular Humanism. Tell them to look at the above and then look how they are doing exactly what God told us not to do as the Old Testament Characters did, “Doing that which was right in their own sight”. They can do a computer search of Humanist Manifestos I,II, and III. I did.

      For those of you who have never heard of the Scientific research of the original Hebrew and Greek, I provide this information that anyone can research for themselves. These professors “thinking themselves wise became fools and worshiped the CREATURE more than the CREATOR.”The Bible, with the Hebrew Old Testament Text and the original Greek New Testament does things that no other religious text of any other World Religion does; demonstrating that only the Creator could have, through 44 inspired writers, written this book. The scribes who copied the original Hebrew Old Testament text copied carefully every letter, jot and tittle. As they read the copied text, if a single letter, jot, or tittle mistake was made, they would destroy all that had been written and start over.

      Ivan Panin, a Harvard Hebrew, Greek, and Mathematical Scholar researched the numerical values of the Hebrew and Greek letters. He sent 43,000 pages of numerical research to the Nobel Research Committee in 1900, and they could not refute the fact that God through 44 inspired writers wrote the Bible.

      Del Washburn has written two books expanding on the numerical values, “Theomatics” and “Theomatics II”. (See ).

      The most amazing proof that the Creator of the Universe wrote the Bible through the inspired men of God is the Equidistant Letter Sequences. The NSA tried to duplicate such coding and failed. Harold Gans, the lead code breaker for the NSA, before he died, satisfied himself that God wrote the Bible, by using a mathematical formula to determine the probabilities involved in creating codes throughout the surface text of the Old Testament ( ). Through the code, the multitude of information reads like yesterdays news–you must know the names, events, persons involved, locations, and/or the dates. For this reason it can not be used prophetically.

      The original text of the Old and New Testament with the letter numeric values and the multitude of Equidistant Letter Sequences should be enough to prove to anyone that the God of the Bible, is our Creator. There are thousands of words, names, sentences and locations encoded in the Old Testament. If you are thinking that some super intelligence wrote this book other than God, God reminds you from Numbers 23’19”, “God is not a man that He should lie….” No human or computer can duplicate anything resembling the quantity of ELS coding in surface text like the Bible does. There are even codes between books, God knowing which books would be canonized.

      In Ezekiel 36′ 25″-27″ it describes God’s way of salvation–“I will remove your stoney heart and give you a heart of flesh (being born again and receiving Jesus as your Savior), I will sprinkle you with water and make you clean (water baptism), and put my Spirit in you to cause you to walk in my laws and statutes (receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit).

      Ivan Panin corrected an Exhaustive Bible Concordance using what he called the Bible Numerics. He said if there were 2 words found in the Greek New Testament in a sentence and you wanted to know which word to use, the word that harmonized with the sentence numerically was the correct word. He provided a Greek Numeric New Testament. Example of Bible Numerics: In the first sentence in the Old Testament, Genesis 1’1″, every verb is divisible by 7, every noun, and more; there are over 34 features of the number 7 in just this one sentence and these type features are consistent throughout the Bible.

      Just a few of the codes found: Hitler, Holocaust, Eichmann, Fuhrer, Meinkampf, Berlin, Germany, Belson, King of the Nazis, Crematoria for my Sons, (for statistical purposes only-there are more) 66 names of Rabbis-the cities in which they lived-dates of death, Anwar Sadat-1981-parade-shot-gunfire-Chaled (his assassin), Yitzchak Rabin-Israel-will be murdered-date born-date of death-location of the assassination-assassin’s name-Oslo Peace Process, both Wars in the Gulf, George Bush, Saddam Hussein-America Schwarzkopf-the missiles will terrify-Scud B-they shut the door-3rd of Shavat, empty the gas, Murrah Building-Tim-McVeigh-slaughter-desolate, (in Genesis 38′) all the ancestors of King David, (in Genesis)25 trees are named, (between Isaiah 52′ and 55′) Behold the Blood of Jesus-Let Him Be Crucified-Mary-Joseph-Jesus is my Name-all the disciples names,Nazarene, Messiah, Shiloh, Passover, Galilee, Herod, Annas, Caiaphas Caesar, The evil Roman City, (in Zechariah 9’13”)Jesus, (in Zachariah 11’13”)Jesus, (in Daniel 9’26”) The Peace Offering, (in Micah 5’1-2″ Mary, Joseph, and Jesus(Yeshua),(in Matthew 24’7 through 48″) Jesus, Nazareth, Mercy, Lamb, (in Mark 8’9″ through Mark 9’2″) Jesus, Blood, Son, Innocent, Lamb, (in John 5’5″-13″) Jesus, Nazareth, Lamb, the name of the person most responsible for all the satellites circling the Earth and their names—–and on and on and on and on. I don’t think all of the codes will be found. Who knows, the Old Testament in the original Hebrew may have the list of those whose names are written in the BOOK OF LIFE.

        Say hello to Pastor Randy Vaughn for me, I used to be an environmental inspector in Port Arthur and I believe we met once or twice.

  2. Thanks so much for commenting, Dexter.

  3. God bless you Star! I praise God for these mighty men of God! Thank you for sharing the whole word of God, the truth, the way and the only hope for mankind.
