Religious intolerance video of the day

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Yes, this actually happened: a toddler at the Apostolic Truth Tabernacle in Greensburg, Indiana, recites something that ended in "Ain’t No Homos Gonna Make It To Heaven," and all the crowd cheers with admiration. This.

They presumptuously usurp God's perrogative of judgement.
As we are all sinners and are all imperfect, God's standard is based on our seeking him and His atoning grace. While homosexual acts are contrary to God's intent for us, so are the other 99.9% of what we selfishly do.
Teaching CHILDREN to focus upon a narrow range of sin can ITSELF be sinful in the Biblically-literal sense of "sin": falling short of God's standards. In the process, these foolish people appear to be raising a generation of spiritually-blind young people...and there is only ONE thing that comes from such spiritual blindness: Hypocrisy.
Any Biblically-literate person knows that hypocrisy was the sin that Christ most often condemned. If this video is an example of their theological understanding of God's firm-love-yet-abundant-grace, Apostolic Truth Tabernacle seems to be in danger of becoming a Pharisaical "white-washed tomb". More fearfully, its leaders need to beware Christ's injunction agaist misleading teaching: "If anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea." (Matthew 18:6)
I can't think of anything more likely to [mis]lead to lifetimes of sinful hypocrisy than teaching children to casually label/dismiss OTHER people as sinners.
