It refers to the UK’s Methodist Church that is to make a public apology after an investigation uncovered nearly 2,000 reported cases of abuse – including 914 allegations involving sexual abuse.
The independent inquiry looked at the Church’s response to complaints and allegations dating back to 1950. 65 years.
General secretary, the Revd Dr Martyn Atkins, said abuse would “remain a deep source of grief and shame to the Church”.
The NSPCC urged it to protect children.
And report chairman Jane Stacey, former deputy chief executive of the children’s charity Barnardo’s, called for a culture change in the Church.
It needs more than a culture change, it needs salvation through the Gospel of Jesus.
I do find it strange that Christian Church Leaders claim to be called by God to operate his Church, the church of Jesus Christ. They also claim to be a part of the Body of Christ Jesus here on earth. Yet they do the things that God hates and will punish. They also claim to be operating according to the Holy Bible. Well, read what is said in the Holy Bible regarding the things these Church Leaders are apologising for.
Revelation 21:8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulphur. This is the second death.”
How can you trust any Christian who abuses people and how can you trust any Christian Leader who covers it up?
Well, you can’t trust them and would be a fool to do so.
Nowhere in the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ does he allow any form of abuse, sexual or otherwise. So clearly those Christian Church Leaders do not love the Lord Jesus but hate him. For to love the Lord Jesus is to obey Him.
Yes we know that we all fall into sin, but this is not what we are talking about. We are talking about Liars who claim to be anointed by God and part of Christ’s Body. Clergy who are selected, anointed and approved by God to be Church Leaders. Yet carry out abuse and allow abuse to be hidden over a number of years. May God have mercy on their souls.
Only an apology?
An apology is not enough, they have to get right with the Lord Jesus through his perfect Gospel and then show that they have been forgiven by the work of the Holy Spirit of God in their lives. Without evidence of the Holy Spirit, they should be shunned by all true disciples of the Lord Jesus and the unsaved.
As the chosen Apostle John wrote. Jesus made it clear who Liars were. John 8:44 ‘You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of liars.’
So what does that make of Christian Leaders who lie and cover wickedness up?
While the Christian Church allows people who hate the Lord Jesus to become members and also be ordained, nothing will change.
Society is corrupt and Christianity is a part of Society.
The Christian Leaders know they are leaders of a corrupt Church, that is why they do not act in an open and honest manner, for they can’t. Liars never can. In addition, liars even lie to themselves, so that you cannot trust even their apology.
Here are 3 videos that I made and published on Youtube.
A video on the subject of Man’s Church and Jesus’ Church. One controlled by the Devil and the other controlled by the Holy Spirit of God. Uploaded on 23 Jul 2011. Look at the believers described in the Holy Bible and you see Holy Spirit power in action. Look at today’s Christian Churches and you see (?)
A video about Godless Christians. Uploaded on 6 Aug 2011. It is clear that not all Christians love the Lord Jesus. Since that video was put on Youtube, not one Christian Church Leader has contacted me. Isn’t that strange? Well, if they are Godless, no it isn’t!
A video about Getting your Revenge against those who abuse you. As Christians abused my family and I. Published on 24 Nov 2013. As a true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, I suffer persecution. How then do I cope with the feelings I get to have my revenge for what they did and still do?
This a serious subject and it is nothing new. Since the beginning of the Human Race there have been Religious Abuse. The Jews abused the Lord Jesus who was their Lord the Messiah promised by God to come and save them. They, but not all, got him killed.
All I can add is that you study the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ found on this website and allow the Holy Spirit of God show you the truth about You and God. Only by loving and obeying the Lord Jesus can you be set free from the control of the Devil. Religion, even Christianity, will never set you free! Only Liars will tell you it can.
One of the aims of the Devil is to defame the Lord Jesus, to get people to lose trust in him. The work of disciples like myself is to come against the lies and prove that the Lord Jesus is perfectly good and can be trusted with your life. I trust him, my loving Lord Jesus, with my life!
May God bless you and if you are an Abuser of others then only the Lord Jesus can set you free from the Devil’s power over you.
Praise the Lord Jesus for he is worthy of your praise, love, and obedience! Hate him and Hell awaits you.
