Megachurch Leader D. James Kennedy Dies at 76


Dr. D. James Kennedy

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Rev. D. James Kennedy, a pioneering megachurch pastor who became one of the nation's most prominent Christian broadcasters and a key figure in the rise of the religious right, died Wednesday, a church spokesman said. He was 76.

Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church spokesman John Aman said Kennedy died at about 2:15 a.m. at his home in Fort Lauderdale. He had suffered a heart attack in December and announced his retirement last month.

Kennedy took the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale from a congregation of 45 in 1959 to a megachurch of nearly 10,000 members today.

He also founded the Center for Christian Statesmanship in Washington, organizing Capitol Hill Bible studies and other events that attracted top government officials and encouraged them "to embrace God's providential purpose for this nation." ...

My prayers are with his family -- to include his Church family -- GOD BLESS THEM ALL !!!

I must say that I have had occasion to hear D. James Kennedy proclaim THE TRUTH on Christian TV and I found him to be most agreeable --- I'm sure we will see him IN HEAVEN !!!

Some here have said some rather strong words against him --- he wasn't perfect and I never heard him profess to be so --- but his LOVE FOR GOD AND HIS SON WAS TRUE --- he was merely a man SEEKING TO WALK WITH THE LORD --- he WAS A BROTHER *IN* Christ !!!

For those of you that want to kick a horse that has already past on -???- I think you should check yourselves on this one !!!

Again I will state this --- Was he perfect ??? --- NO !!! --- Are any of you perfect ??? --- NO !!! --- And I most assuredly am NOT !!!

We are all WORKS IN PROGRESS -- each of us at different stages WITHIN THE WORKINGS OF GOD'S DESIGN *IN* Christ !!!

IT IS GOD WHO STRENGTHENS us WITH ALL MIGHT -- *BY* HIS SPIRIT -- *IN* Christ !!!

Take Care All !!!

With Love *IN* Christ, KK

Dessie, I agree, but unfortunately, in pointing it out, Listener1 showed the same venom and hatred he condemned. That is called HYPOCRISY.

You hit the nail on the head; you were
able to express it better than me. Most of the comments never pertain to the articles.

Most people like to hear themselves
and impress others with their words.

Thank you again for your insight.

This is an open letter to you folks who post (spew) your vitriolic hate on each news item on this site in a continuous stream of vomit. (Those who stay on topic and keep a civil tongue know that your posts are rarely seen because of these immature individuals.) You others never discuss the news item, but rather use it as a forum for your inane, inept, foolish comments that are seriously calculated to keep non-Christians as far away as possible from God. Considering all this, it is a wonder that the site owner doesn't block everyone from posting anything until he approves it. So far you have shown clearly your hind parts, both cheeks dripping with crud slimed from the Pit, in your attacks on Falwell and now Kennedy. Fortunately, you could not say a word about Robert Webber who died a few weeks ago simply because his obituary wasn't posted here. And just in case you think that I am going to read your comments to my post, think again. And do not come crying to me for a drop of water to cool your tongue...

Lest SATAN should deceive anyone who reads posted comments on this SermonAudio.com website; into FALSELY thinking (For Satan is a master planter & supplanter of "implanted-thoughts in our human sub-conscience minds", subversion and disinformation !) that I, AntiVaticanistAmerican, have had/have/will have an unholy/unjust/unrighteous HATE in my mind, heart or soul for Presbyterian Megachurch Leader D. James Kennedy: Let it be known that I, as far back as the mid-1970s, was a Regular/Consistent listener/viewer of D. James Kennedy's Coral-Ridge Ministry; as well as an early member of the so-called "Moral-Majority" of Jerry Falwell back in the mid-to-late 1970s.

I have since REPUDIATED ALL involvement in the so-called Neo-Fundamentalist-Christian-Republican-Rightwinged-Evangelical-Political-Ecumenical-One-World-Globalist/Internationalist/Multinationalist-New-World-Order of The Rightwinged-REAGAN-Revolution/Post-Right-winged-REAGAN/BUSH-Republican/Revolution-PRO-SATANIC-VATICANIST/"JESUITIC"/ROMAN-"CATHOLIC"-CULTIC-(Restored US Diplomatic Ties with The SATANIC-VATICAN-1983); Which is Only a Diabolical "Jesuitic" Political/Religious Movement giving BLIND-OBEDIENCE & IMPETUS to The LITERAL-FULFILLMENT of The FOUR-HORSEMEN of THE APOCALYPSE Headed by The WHITE-HORSED "POPE" OF ROME !

Thank you, Brother Don, for posting that URL for pastor Ovadal‚Äôs sermon ‚ÄúThe Serpent‚Äôs Hiss‚ÄĚ. I listened to it again and heard that Dr. Kennedy:

1) quoted pope Benedict on his website giving a gospel message,

2) had a priest on one of his TV programs that was talking about Jesus,

3) defended the crusades as being a Christian endeavor,

4) spoke of the inquisition as though it were just nominal Christians that did it without even mentioning the words ‚Äúcatholic‚ÄĚ, ‚ÄúRomanism‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúpope‚ÄĚ.

This is very evil. I hope Dr. K was saved and just ignorant of the evil he was doing in promoting this ecumenism.

Greetings to My Beloved Br. Don from Wisconsin!

And give my Greetings and Best Wishes to Br./Pastor Ralph Ovadal and his Blessed Members like Adrian Horien; who accompanied me in my PROTEST of The SODOMITES in Chicago; when I ran for CONGRESS back in 2004 !

Although, I glory in NO MAN'S DEATH; not even in "Megachurch D. James Kennedy's Death at 76"; I would like to say that I AGREE with what "Flash" has said in addressing my Beloved Brother Don.

If I had NOT run for The U.S. CONGRESS (House of Representatives in 1986, 1995, 2002 & 2004) I would NOT have believed what "Flash" has said concerning:

1. Pro-Satanic-Vaticanist Pat Robertson.

2. The Satanic-Vacanist/Roman-"Catholic"-Cultic/Covert-Overt-"Jesuitic" NEW WORLD ORDER Richard Land & Rick Warren.

3. SECRET/CLOSET SODOMITES like LARRY CRAIG.

4. ETC.

*NOTE: ALSO, I DO DOUBLE-DOG DARE AND CHALLENGE "FLASH" TO ALSO JOIN THE FEW, THE BOLD "LIONS", THE WHOLE TRUTH-TELLERS; AND EXPOSE THE SATANIC-VATICAN/ROMAN "CATHOLIC" CULT OF POPISH "JESUITIC" VATICANISM & HER/MYSTERY-BABYLON'S "JESUITS": WHO ARE THE INTELLECTUAL-ACADEMIC-EDUCATIONAL-POLITICAL MASTERMINDS WHO ARE THE REAL MINISTERS OF THE DEVIL BEHIND THE SO-CALLED "NEW WORLD ORDER"; NOT TO MENTION THE SECRETEST SOCIETY OF THE SO-CALLED "SECRET SOCIETIES" !

Ah, well, the ICR site liked Pastor Kennedy for one thing, "Creation Defender D. James Kennedy Goes Home"

http://www.icr.org/articles/view/3468/

I have no strong desire in defending him in areas where he was wrong, as what is the purpose of the Church,

Brother Don

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. (2Co 11:14)

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. (2Co 11:15)

In the love of Jesus Christ our Lord

Brother Don, have you seen the video online of Pat Robertson using the devil hand sign while he prays for healing?

All these guys belong to Moon's front groups and they are all working for the New World Order --world government and world religion. Tim LaHeye is particularly sinister, but all of them are fakes, pure fakes, sold their souls to the Devil for power and money, so they get to go on TV as respected "men of God" and get their fairy tale novels published and promoted big time.

Richard Land and Rick Warren are recent members of the Council on Foreign Relations, an Illuminati group working for world government.

Most of the so-called right wing conservative leaders in Congress and government are at best homosexual, at worst pedophiles and worse. The hideous truth is that the most evil men in the world are posing as the most righteous.

Please people, wake up. Doesn't it make sense? Why do you think they call them "Secret societies?" They CANNOT do what they do in public because the people would not tolerate it. So they pose as one thing during the day or in public, but in private they do their unspeakable evil. Larry Craig is a recent example.

It is sad when any person dies. Whether D. James Kennedy was born again or not is not for us to say. I pray his family is born again and drawing near to our Lord Jesus Christ in their time of grieving.

There are some things we need to be aware of, though, concerning Kennedy's ministry. He had a long and open history of ecumenism. There was even a "gospel" message on his website by Pope Benedict. If you think I'm mean spirited for saying it you need revival.

I don't wish to be divisive or detract from the subject at hand, but Proverbs 31 praises women twice... in verse 28 and verse 31. I see no reason why this can not equally apply to Dr. Kennedy.

Be careful here brother never ever to praise any man.
