Pastor berates congregation
« on: July 03, 2013, 08:52:17 AM »
I guess he replaced his WWJD? bracelet with that fancy gold 1970s porno style bling and lost his mind...

I like how he calls out one parishoner as not being worth 15 cents and of course apologizes, hugs, and makes it all better.  It would have really made news if the parishoner popped him in the eye and asked him to turn the other cheek.

Another star for jeezus in Oklahoma!

I am always amazed that people let themselves be put thru stuff like that.  Kick his ass then ay you are sorry. That would be a fitting end to this one.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Wow.  That was really shocking to me.  I am trying to imagine what type of personality would be drawn to this sort of behavior.  I mean, folks who were emotionally abused by their fathers as children, but miss dear old dad since he passed away?  Folks who have a boss who treats them like that, and who miss it on weekends.  I mean, are their folks who really, deep down, believe that they are worthless, and seek out someone to tell them that they are worthless just to prove their point? 

I don't know.  There are so many ways to worship the god of Abraham.

Personally, I prefer to watch Joel Osteen on Sunday mornings from time to time.  He has a nice god, who micromanages all of our lives, and hides little easter egg events and opportunities for all of us to get what we want in life.  Mostly to get rich.  His god is always sitting around waiting to see if we respond appropriately to the various situations that god sets up for us, and if he likes what we do, he provides monetary rewards.   When asked about homosexuality, Osteen sighs and says that we are all sinners, and that he doesn't think that homosexuality is any worse than anything else, and that god loves us.  Pretty much anything we do is A-OK with god.  But those of us who really impress the big guy get big houses and gas-guzzling cars.

I can almost get it.  I mean, Pastor Osteen is easy on the eyes, charismatic, and full of lots of positive reinforcement.  Who doesn't want to be told how special we are?

But this nasty pastor?  I don't get it .  On any level.

I've never heard a full sermon from this asshat, but I kept thinking these folks got what they paid for.  Unless he has flipped (he's 76, so maybe he's having a senior moment), they have sat under this type of nonsense and attacks for years.

Sort of like Quesi said, maybe it's some sort of self-flagellation syndrome where they all think sky daddy needs to whack on them each Sunday.

If this sermon was an abberation, I don't see how the guy made it out of the sanctuary without being "slain in the spirit" by a couple of his flock.  He even attacked the video guy for "kingdom building"???

I don't know?  That Osteen guy creeps me out.  Just to happy and smiling.  No one is like that in real life...are they?

People who like to be on their knees tend to enjoy bending[1] over.

I agree.  Leaders tend to suck.

the church I went to, once made a young lady that became pregnant come up before the congregation and apologize to the church during a service... smh. This is just as bad. However, this is what happens when you teach people that they are worthless before god and worthy of death and damnation. Sad, very sad.

Not usually.

Ever heard of "the church car-park miracle"? Family drives to church, parents arguing over something, kids fighting, parents yelling at kids. Pull up at church, walk across the car-park, smiling and angelic, greeting the first people you meet with "Good morning! What a beautiful day our Lord has made!"

It's a miracle!
Go on up you baldhead.

MM,
I had a pastor who used to say he would would trade in his robes to hear what was going on five minutes before the families pulled into the the church lot.

No need to trade in his robes (robes? Seriously?) All he needs to do is pay attention to his own family interaction. Unlikely to be much difference.
