Pastor Pete Wilson Runs Out of Sin and Resigns Accordingly
In keeping with Protestant insanity, pastors who get caught with both hands in the cookie jar must resign after preaching the total depravity of the saints for years while long-term affairs were running in the background. You can even read their exiled musings here: expastors.com. Again, we owe the Australian Forum a great debt of gratitude for inspiring a visual illustration published by a Reformed missionary organization that concisely depicts the Protestant gospel.*
And to further the madness, pastors who do not get caught and lack discovery of sufficient sin must also resign because lack of “seeing the sin under the sin” results in lack of “deep repentance” and shallow repentance makes the cross smaller.**
One such example is Pastor Pete Wilson of the multi-campus Cross Point Church in Nashville, Tennessee. After preaching for years that Christians are “broken,” he is resigning because he is, well, “broken.” However, if your local Baptist church produced anything else but this kind of confusion it would probably confuse us.
And now, more than ever before — I really need your prayers and I need your support. We’ve said that this is a church where it’s OK to not be okay, and I’m not okay. I’m tired. I’m broken, and I just need some rest.
But according to what these guys preach Sunday, after Sunday, after Sunday, doesn’t this better qualify him to be a Neo-Protestant leader? Um, note that he says it’s ok to not be ok, and he is not ok, but it is no longer ok for him to be the pastor. Huh?
Question: Folks, why do you go to church and give the god of confusion your God-given time and hard-earned money? My advice: just stop it.
But no good Neo-Protestant hack stops at that level of absurdity; it gets better. On the one hand, if you had a nickel for every time one of these guys said we are “broken” you would be a millionaire, but on the other hand, he is disqualified from ministry because he is broken. You see, it’s ok to not be ok and he is not ok so it’s not ok that he is still a pastor.
While people go to church and listen to this stuff without even blinking we wonder why people don’t take the gospel seriously anymore. They might start if we reject the whole tradition in totality. It’s spiritually bankrupt.
And lastly, one of the major pillars of Protestant progressive justification is John Calvin’s Sabbath Rest Sanctification; ie., doing any work in our sanctification leads to death just like it did on the Sabbath Day during Old Testament times.***
So, apparently, regardless of the fact that this guy has been working his sanctified butt off since the beginning of this church’s founding, his church becomes one of the “fastest growing churches in America” by doing it completely wrong?
Right. After all, if it’s not a paradox, it can’t be Protestant.
