Why Is Hillsong’s Brian Houston Promoting Defamed Mark Driscoll To Conference?

mark-driscoll-is-founder-of-mars-hill-church-in-seattle(BrightCitizen.com) You would think Mark Driscoll should step down himself as his former church membership/leaders agree he has done some very questionable things.  Driscoll built up Mars Hill Church near Seattle Washington but resigned last year for misuse of church funds, hiring a firm to make his book a a NY Times best seller (by buying his books), and his abusive treatment of people working at his church through power harassment.

Despite this, no one is sure why Brian Houston, founder and leader of Hillsong church and leader of conferences, would feature him at a large event when the wounds of the people involved are still healing.

Hillsong conferences generally have great reviews but when it comes to the speakers, the mix of traditional religious Christians and the Strong Faith preachers speaking is confusing to most.  Read more about the campaign to get Hillsong to reconsider here.

Rand Paul Says It’s Time To Change The US Government- Announces Presidential Bid (Full Speech)

https://youtu.be/A-6KnMd8g8g

Rand Paul announces bid for US presidency.  He makes no attempt to be politically correct and blames the bipartisan over-budget, political machine of both democrat and republican parties for reducing America’s positive influence and power in the world.

Although Dr. Paul doesn’t seem to have the oratory skills of a slick politician, he does have the facts and finesse for reaching the majority of Americans.  His speech was well presented weaving his personal experiences, Washington impressions, and reason for why he thinks he can do it better.

Can he compete with rivals for the nomination?  Please add your thoughts below.

Why Christians Are Against Homosexual or Gay “Marriage”

For decades, homosexuals in the United States have sought stability in their same sex relationships.  They have also wanted recognition from the typical male and female couples.  

With the rise of the powerful homosexual lobby groups in the United States, homosexual people have been able to gain legal recognition.  Public sentiment started to cave in to say let them do what they want.

One group never has and never will likely accept homosexual relationships or ‘gay marriage’ for that matter as normal.  This group is Christians who follow the teachings of the Bible.   Homosexual lifestyle is considered sin and something that will separate people from being with God eternally.

With the new found power of the LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transsexual) groups, pro-homosexual public servants and lawyers as well as gay couples looking for money have begun taking legal action in states against Christians who accept them, but don’t accept their ‘sin’.  Christian Americans see providing service in these homosexual marriages as an association with the sin.  Therefore many Christian professionals have declined to bake homosexual wedding cakes or do flowers for gay weddings.  

The people living the homosexual lifestyle have decided to change the original message of tolerance away and attack Christian business owners for not supporting their marriages.  They have even labeled it as discriminatory.  

Christians are not against homosexual people, they just do not want to be associated or have a conscience that is contrary to the Bible that condones this lifestyle.
