1 Samuel 2:30: “…for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.”
The Presbyterian Moderator has refused to state whether or not he believes sodomy is a sin.
When asked in an interview with the Belfast Telegraph if he personally believed that homosexuality was sinful, Rev Charles McMullen said he was “not going to answer that”.
What a craven act of cowardice!
The role of a minister is to tell the truth to the people, regardless of whether he thinks the people want to hear it.
Based on other comments Rev Charles McMullen made during the interview, it would appear he probably does think homosexuality is contrary to God’s Word (how anyone could think otherwise is frankly remarkable), but he clearly lacked the courage to come out and say it.
And what a disgraceful situation that he consciously refuses to take his stand for Christ.
Rev Charles McMullen is utterly ignoring the charge laid down to preachers in 2 Timothy 4:2, which says: “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”
Condemnation of sodomy, which God has called an “abomination” (Leviticus 18:22) is very much out of season in this day of apostasy, but Rev Charles McMullen has a God ordained responsibility to speak the truth.
When he doesn’t do that he consciously chooses to dishonour God.
In addition, as a minister, Rev Charles McMullen has a solemn responsibility to point out sin and to warn of the judgment to come for those who persist in it.
When a minister fails to do that, then the blood of the sinner is on their hands.
Ezekiel 33:2-9: “Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand. So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.”
Any homosexual who read that article would not have been caused an uncomfortable moment by Rev Charles McMullen’s non-answer.
How much blood of homosexuals persisting in that which God’s Word has said is “against nature” is on the hands of Rev Charles McMullen?
Indeed, Rev Charles McMullen’s vow of silence on the matter marks him out as the epitome of the dumb dog preachers condemned by God.
Isaiah 56:10: “His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.”
Throughout the course of the interview, Rev Charles McMullen also rejects the Biblical prohibition placed on permitting the unsaved to partake in the Lord’s table.
Rev Charles McMullen said: “Nobody is being prevented from coming into Sunday services or taking Communion as the Lord’s table is open to all.
“And all of our churches need to be welcoming places where no one is excluded from coming forward to worship or to receive pastoral care or to take Communion together.”
Let’s compare this with what the Bible has to say about taking Communion.
1 Corinthians 11:27-29: “Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.”
So not only is Rev Charles McMullen guilty of the blood of sodomites he refuses to warn of the sinfulness of their lifestyle, but he is also encouraging them, and other unsaved people, to be “guilty of the body and blood of the Lord”.
How shameful that is.
Of course, Rev Charles McMullen is well acquainted with associating with those who are guilty of the body and blood of Jesus.
As soon as he was named the new Moderator of the Presbyterian Church, Rev Charles McMullen was falling over himself to invite himself to meet “that Antichrist”, the Pope.
The Pope is the man who heads up the utterly evil Roman Catholic system, which in its chapels throughout the world, every day offers up a false, blasphemous sacrifice of Christ in its “dangerous deceit” of the Mass.
Not that that matters to Rev Charles McMullen as he would far rather join in with the leader of the most evil organisation on earth than warn poor lost sodomites bound for hell of the eternal danger they are in.
Praise God sodomites, and indeed anyone can be saved by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”
The effeminate and the abusers of themselves with mankind can be saved, indeed were saved in Corinth.
However, you won’t hear that positive message from Rev Charles McMullen as he is too busy trying not to offend people, flattering them all the way to hell.
John 8:31-32: “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
