Paul's Passing Thoughts

Francis Chan Creates Controversy For Being Protestant Among Protestants Who Don’t Know What a Protestant Is which is Most

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on April 12, 2018

“Yes indeed, the lovely church would never execute people who disagree with them, God is now doing that for them, that is, the god they are supposed to imitate.”

ppt-jpeg4More controversy in church land filled with plenary pandemonium. I pretty much stay away from surfing the Protestant internet because I don’t have as much time to write as I used to, and Protestant news is rife with opportunities to partake in musings of morbid curiosity like a fatal car wreck that we have to look at while we pass.

However, I have received several emails concerning a recent sermon by Francis Chan that apparently hit a nerve with churchians at large. So, I went to You Tube and observed the traumaunction. And as I suspected beforehand, it was Chan just being a good Protestant.

First, according to authentic Protestant orthodoxy, all sermons are to be traumaunctions. These are emotional expressions that create trauma in the mind. Francis Chan and John Piper stand out in regard to being particularly apt in traumaunction. This is because the founding fathers of Protestantism, the big three, Augustine, Luther, and Calvin, believed that true sanctification is driven by fear; that is, fear of condemnation that drives us back to the cross for re-justification. That’s Protestantism in a nutshell…it is a religion of fear and condemnation. For detailed documentation on this point, get my book, “It’s Not About Election; Why Calvinism is ‘Another Gospel'” which can be read for free here or purchased here.

If you watch the video, said sermon is all about the fear. Someplace, the big three were smiling, wherever that might be, God knows. Protestantism is clearly a false gospel that defines the saints as yet under law (the biblical definition of a lost person), but many are thankfully confused enough to be saved. John MacArthur is probably an example of that.

Secondly, in said sermon, and true to Protestant orthodoxy, Chan claims that God will strike people dead who criticize the Protestant philosopher kings. That is absolutely necessary after Americanism took away the ability for the Protestant church to execute their detractors. Since we are supposedly a civilized society now, God has taken over executions for the church. Not; there is only ONE reason the church is no longer executing detractors…AMERICA…period. Why do you think we see an ever-increasing anti-American sentiment and leaning toward Socialism in the church? America took away the church’s power over the masses. Yes indeed, the lovely church would never execute people who disagree with them, God is now doing that for them, that is, the god they are supposed to imitate.

Hence, confused Protestants refer to Chan’s traumaunction as cultic behavior. Sigh, once again, let’s define cultism. The word enters into history after the American Revolution. Why? Because when the sword was taken away from the church, it had to resort to mind control manipulation in order to exert control over the masses. Cultism is defined by ANY religion that integrates authority with faith. At any time any church leader declares that said church has authority…that’s a cult…period. And let’s be clear, “The Bible is our authority” really means, “What we say the Bible says is the authority.”

Nevertheless, the mindlessness of Protestants never ceases to amaze; Chan, in said sermon, answers the question one might ask in regard to God not striking people dead right and left. Well, supposedly, he received a special word from the Lord on that; God’s people have not been sufficiently warned, so, Chan has begun fulfilling that duty which will apparently lead to a string of deaths. And, this didn’t lead to half the place heading for the exits. And so it is in our day.

Thirdly, in the traumaunction, Chan perfectly defines the definition of unity according to Protestant orthodoxy; it’s obedience to whatever the Protestant philosopher kings say. That’s because Protestantism in predicated on authority as truth. I have said it before and will keep saying it: this is salvation by obeying the church which is also black and white Protestant orthodoxy. This is the good news of church authority. This is the good news of Mark Driscoll’s “Keep your damn mouth shut and obey!” This is the good news of Albert Mohler’s “Pastors are God’s appointed men to save His people from ignorance.”

Do you realize why many Protestants are “converting” to the Catholic Church? Let me state it straight from the horse’s mouth: “If everyone would just obey the Catholic Church which has been around since the beginning we wouldn’t have all these denominations.” Right, the Protestant Reformation did spawn a total misunderstanding about religious freedom in the minds of many. This resulted in the Protestant church killing many of them, and in some cases, groups where hunted down and murdered by both churches.

If church is all about authority as truth, and it is, doesn’t it make sense to find salvation in what is clearly the first historical church? And besides, Saint Augustine is the Doctor of Grace for both churches. But does anybody give that a second thought? Nope.

Go easy on Francis Chan, he’s just being a good Protestant. Meanwhile, come out from among them and be separate.

    traumaunction . . . might be a good word. LOL could you define it porfavore?

      John Immel, YOU don’t know? It means cream-a-pantsia. For example, “After hearing that God would strike dead anyone who dare speak out against the philosopher kings (and knowing he accidentally had done that the previous evening while secretly reading PPTs), he had a cream-a-pantsium episode, after which everyone left the synagogue and went to Starbucks.

      Long ago, I really liked a Catholic girl, but Mary kept coming between us.

      Great article, Paul. How confused is Calvinism/Protestantism? On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d say ‘very.’

      It’s an overdramatized sermon or speech that attempts to mentally traumatize its listeners.

        Like all their (Calvinists’) sermons are. They are a traumatized bunch of people. Test it by randomly saying “free will” and watch them go into the fetal position right there and then.

        Or they will spontaneously utter the word “mystery” or “paradox”, or if they really want to sound like a snobbish elitist academic, “antinomy”.

    It’s mind control shock jock preaching. Your title is hilarious.


    • Paul M. Dohse Sr. said, on April 16, 2018 at 10:13 PM

      And “mind control shock jock preaching” is a spot-on analogy.
