Apostasy in the News
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first..."
2 Thessalonians 2:3

The 155 year old historic Calvary Baptist Church in downtown Washington, D.C. has done the unthinkable, they have hired two lesbian women living openly in the sin of homosexuality to be the new "pastors" of their church.
Christianitytoday.com describes this horrible and tragic event,
"A lesbian couple will next month take on joint senior minister roles at a 155-year-old Baptist church in Washington.
Sally Sarratt and Maria Swearingen – who are married – were ordained in 2015 and were announced as the new co-pastors of Calvary Baptist Church on Sunday. They will take up the role on February 26, the church said." (1)
"We have found it so easy to fall in love with Calvary and its longstanding commitment to be a voice of justice and compassion for those who perpetually find the wholeness of their humanity disregarded and maligned," said Sarratt and Swearingden."
"In a post on Facebook, Swearingen added that the pair were "overjoyed" to announced their new roles." "It's a dream that's been in the works for quite a while, and we are thrilled to take part in the wild and wondrous work of community together," she said."
"What gratitude we have for so many who have continued to walk with us and bless our journey together. Thanks be to God for all that lies ahead..." (2).
The Holy Scriptures make it explicitly clear that homosexuality is an abomination in the sight of God (Leviticus 18:22), and is a sin, not only in the action, but also in the lust and desire (Romans 1:24-27). As a result the Holy Bible warns all sinners, including those deceived by the sin of homosexuality, and who refuse to repent and trust the Lord Jesus Christ by faith for their salvation, that they will not, "...inherit the kingdom of God" (1 Corinthians 6:10).
Therefore, according to the Word of God, the only tragic thing that lies ahead for these so called, "lesbian pastors" unless they repent, is eternal damnation in hell (Luke 13:3). Eternal damnation in the Lake of fire will also be the destination of all those who bless the perverse and sinful desires, lusts and affections of homosexuality (Luke 13:3; Romans 1:26-27; Galatians 5:24). Unfortunately, this ungodly apostasy in the church world, the acceptance of sin, and the jusification of the wicked will continue to grow (2 Thessalonians 2:3; 2 Timothy 3:13
The Bible says, "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God" (Psalm 9:17).
Therefore Calvary Baptist Church and all those who support the sin of homosexuality do not love homosexuals, but are the true haters of homosexuals.
They have demonstrated their hatred of homosexuals by supporting and promoting the sin of homosexuality, refusing to preach the necessity of repentance, and faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ for their salvation to escape an eternity in hell, and the fact that they love the lie, that God has and will accept the sin of homosexuality, when in fact He never will (Leviticus 18:22; Deuteronomy 22:5; Malachi 3:6; Matthew 19:1-12; Romans 6:23; Romans 1:24-27; 1 Corinthians 13:6).
"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." (Revelation 21:8).
"...except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish" (Luke 13:3).
