Where Pastors Stand on the AIDS Sermon
Two weeks ago, I preached a sermon entitled "AIDS: the Judgement of God." In the sermon, I proved from the Bible that God often sends pestilence (disease) as a punishment on people who live a wicked life. I also used statistics from aids.gov, cdc.gov, and the International Journal of Epidemiology to prove that homosexuals are the ones responsible for spreading HIV at a rapid rate. This is due to the reality that homosexuals frequently have anonymous intercourse with complete strangers.
A few of the statements I made in this sermon were picked up by the media. Here are the two main issues the liberal media took exception with:
1. That homosexuals should be executed as criminals according to Leviticus 20:13
2. That no homosexuals will ever be allowed at Faithful Word Baptist Church as long as I am pastor
Several pastors have stood with me in my stand on the word of God against the filth and perversion of our day. Several others have contacted me asking to be removed from our church's directory of soul-winning, KJV-only, independent Baptist churches because "they don't want to be associated with this controversy." Are they saying homosexuality should be legal? It is currently against the law in 80 countries, and it was against the law in many places in America until 2003, but apparently these "old-fashioned" Baptists are up to the minute with their doctrine! Do they allow homosexuals in their churches? If so, guard your kids when visiting these churches!
I can't say exactly where these pastors stand. I don't know what their problem with my biblical sermon is. All I know is that instead of supporting their brother in Christ in his struggle against wickedness and perversion, they are actively discouraging him in his time of persecution and tribulation.
Since they want to be sure they are not associated with me, here is a list of those who have emailed me asking to be removed as a result of my sermon about AIDS:
Pastor Joshua Gregg of Ponderosa Baptist Church in Flagstaff, AZ
Pastor Bob Gray II of Longview Baptist Temple in Longview, TX
Pastor Steve Cox of Trinity Baptist Church in Mocksville, NC
Here is a list of those who have publicly SUPPORTED me, encouraged me, and backed me up on what I have preached:
Pastor Tim Coleman of 35th Avenue Baptist Church in Phoenix, AZ
Pastor David Berzins of Word of Truth Baptist Church in Prescott Valley, AZ
Pastor Donnie Romero of Stedfast Baptist Church in Fort Worth, TX
Pastor Roger Jimenez of Verity Baptist Church in Sacramento, CA
Pastor Logan Robertson of Westcity Bible Baptist Church in Auckland, New Zealand
