New Careers for Liberals — Deserted Churches

Written by Gary North on December 7, 2011

This TV report from CNN tells the story of burned-out theologically liberal boomers who are going back to mainline denomination seminaries. They plan to work in part-time jobs for part-time pay in churches attended by old people on Medicare.

The report did not say this, exactly, but it did admit that many mainline churches cannot afford to pay full-time pastors. So, congregations with aging poor people hire part-time pastors who have left the rat race.

As you watch this, pay attention to the seminary classrooms. They are deserted. This indicates what is happening.

In his new book, The Suicide of a Superpower, Pat Buchanan discusses the lack of replacements for old pastors, old priests, and old members. The evangelical churches are booming. The mainline churches are dying.

Members of mainline churches are the marginally committed, people who say “I worship here because my grandfather did, God rest his soul.” He worshipped there for the same reason.

The theological liberals lost the battle for the hearts and minds of youth. This began in 1926, the year after the Scopes trial,and it has never changed. The high water mark for mainline Protestantism was 1960. After that, it was all downhill. To here:

    You can expect such "Church's" to become Chicago-style Rev. Wright type Marxist, anti-christ as Islam, churches ! Watch! After all, man's 6,000 year era is about over, isn't it? September 16, 2012 begins the final count down? Just saying…

  2. Luke 10:18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
    In ancient Hebrew the word for lightning is barack, the word for heaven or the
    heights is bama and to connect the words either an “a” or an “o” is used.

    2 Thessalonians 2:3 (King James Version)
    3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there
    come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    Political Correctness a term first seen in Mao’s Little Red Book, a communist engendered abomination that is instituting censorship little by little.

    “If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”- George Washington

    Carl Marx, once wrote that, the goal of the Communists was to quote,. “enter into men’s minds and cast God down from his throne.”

    Matthew 12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.


    In ancient Babylon their economy was based on usury.
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that only the Congress can print and coin money! 

    The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was slipped thru congress during the Christmas break with the majority of it’s members absent. 

    The Federal Reserve is self serving and privately owned in violation to the Constitution, charging interest on illegally printed money. Money printed from nothing!
    In America On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. Five months later A UNITED STATES PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY was MURDERED BY COMMUNIST!
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25

    In ancient Babylon their priest sacrificed babies to their gods baal, and molech.  
    In America the communist under their socialist programs have sacrificed over 50 million American babies to their god satan!
    Leviticus 20:2-5
    2Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel , Whosoever he be of the children of Israel , or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel , that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
    3And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.
    4And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:
    5Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
    Luke 22:35-36 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
    Jeremiah 50:16Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the SICKLE in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.
    Jeremiah 50:23How is the HAMMER OF THE WHOLE EARTH CUT ASUNDER AND BROKEN! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!
    Jeremiah 50:14 “ Put yourselves in array against Babylon all around, All you who bend the bow; Shoot at her, spare no arrows, For she has sinned against the LORD.

    All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them. Psalm 118:10

    This is just too funny. Nothing like preachers who don't believe what they preach. Churches that are just money mills, not worshiping God, but banging away at that "ol' time religion". The new "evangelical churches" are booming because they are social centers that have hedonist services – it's not about the practice of being a disciple or follower of Jesus and his teachings – it's about being a Paulist, the man who's credentials rank right up there with Joseph Smith. Paul, once Saul, was not one of the twelve chosen by Jesus, nor even one chosen to replace Judas the betrayer. Paul was often at loggerheads with Peter and the church that ostensively Jesus left in the care of his disciples. These are the worshipers that have raised Jesus to be God and thrown God the Father over in the dumpster as that "old testament" God.

    Sounds like a lot of people spent their whole life sowing and are spending their retirements praying for a crop failure.
