Taking God’s Word seriously means many hours of diligent study, which produces doctrinal coherence and theological consistency. That’s not what today’s evangelicals are known for. So how do we remedy that?

Following my videos on Give me the Truth Part 1 and Part 2 and my post on ‘Did God actually say that?‘ I realise that the things mentioned in these posts happen predominantly in charismatic circles where I came from. Now let me say from the very start that not everything in charismatic churches is bad as there is bad in every church and I would agree with John Macarthur when he says:

I’m very much aware of the fact that not everyone who is associated with the Charismatic movement is engaged in the kind of extreme error that we will be, from time to time, referring to.  There are people who are more moderate.  There are people within the Charismatic movement who, themselves, are very, very concerned about the heresies and the aberrations that exist within that movement

However, there are so many things in there which is error that we cannot ignore it.

Here are some classic examples

Now there may be somethings below that you may not agree with but on the whole, I think that John Macarthur hits it right on the head. You can listen to each sermon by clicking on the appropriate link or download it by right clicking on the link and saving the files.

Before I say anything, let me make this clear that this post is not to belittle or minimize domestic abuse or the sufferers of it. Those who do this despicable thing should have the full weight of the law brought on them. This post is solely a look at Juanita Bynum actions from a biblical standpoint

Not content to play out her whole domestic abuse and divorce out in front of the whole world, Juanita Bynum is making the most of her publicity (and dragging it out) and now appears in Divorce Court. That’s right,the self proclaimed ‘face of domestic violence’ ‘christian’ ‘pastor’ is guest appearing on a TV show about an event that God hates. To say she is milking her situation is an understatement. Watch the following videos

You will have to double-click on the video below to see it

So what does the bible say

1 But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: 2 that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience; 3 the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— 4 that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed. (Titus 2 1:1-5)

First and foremost, Juanita’s is in no position to teach anybody about living a biblical family life. I know many women will flock to her because they can ‘relate’ but just relating does not make the advice good especially when it comes to godly matters. I have heard Bishop Weeks (her soon to be ex-husband) say many times that he has seeked reconciliation but Juanita is having none of it and has not even hinted that she requires the same. Surely if there was ever a chance to show the love of God, it is then. Look how many times we have offended God and if we come with a repentant heart, he is willing to forgive us.

A marriage is supposed to be a representation of Christ and the church. When the world looks at Juanita and her attitude about her marriage, what does the world see? Here is an example of what they see

She is supposedly the spokesperson for God yet blasphemes his name by her conduct. What she is doing does NOT bring glory to God, she does NOT preach sound doctrine and you can see from past videos that she operates on greed (If only that threshing floor video was still available)

I think her words “I love him, but I love me more” sums her up. Ching Ching!!!
