Shortly after I broke the news on my radio broadcast and on social media, Christianity Today confirmed the report: World Vision has decided to embrace homosexual āmarriageā among its employees and to recognize practicing homosexual employees who profess faith in Jesus as true Christians.
This is a betrayal of the gospel, a betrayal of the Lord, a betrayal of the family and a betrayal of the countless thousands of Christians who have put their trust in World Vision as a legitimate Christian organization.
In no way does it contribute to ābuilding a better world for childrenāāone of the fundamental goals of World Vision. In fact, it does the opposite.
Last June, World Vision U.S President Richard Stearns stated, āNo one ever died of gay marriage,ā thereby trivializing the importance of the issue, as if it contrasted with the organizationās mission of providing tangible relief to suffering...
Since the sum total of Jesus and the gospel has come to mean a full belly to most and nothing else World Vision will continue to be thought of as a christian" ministry regardless of the fact it is anything but.

Say, all this outfit has to do is change their name to "Worldly Vision," and they can continue down their path to destruction.
You caught me Jim
Every real believer during the first 3 centuries went to Barnopoulos and Noblias & purchased the NASB presale before they were martyred for their faith
Very good post 1517, reminds us of the false religion that stands along side the false prophet and the Antichrist.We are getting closer to the tribulation everyday. Like the song The Midnight Cry, when Jesus calls His Children home..the signs are everywhere.
This should as a reminder, myself included, that we are to help our neighbor and not think our charity begins and ends with donating money. World Vision is Apostate lest the executives repent. This is more diabolical than a nonbeliever trying to legitimize their preferred sin; WV is using the name of our HOLY GOD CHRIST JESUS in vain. May we humbly pray we do not fall likewise. Shameful and sad.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 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.

Im never alone
1 Kings 19:14 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
1 Kings 19:15 And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria:
1 Kings 19:16 And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
1 Kings 19:17 And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.
1 Kings 19:18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

You never answered a question: everybody here is unique and different. Everyone here has a differnet personality and differing opinions. Everyone here gets into disagreements, arguments, and many times have to agree to disagree. This isn't some club where everyone is of the same mind and opinion on every topic. People disagree all day long and it can even get ugly. Here's my question: With all this in mind, why do you suppose that every single person comes against you. Doesn't this ever give you pause? Can so many who argue amongst themselves, but stop to unite against you really be so wrong? Is it possible that it's you who sees thru very dirty glasses?

Thank You John for finally asking the right question rather than the normal wannabe pharisee SA response of shaking a never read ESV version Bible at the world and asking to be possessed by the spirit of Fred Phelps.
These Churches & organizations have been beguiled by a misunderstanding of the 'Golden Rule.' As Christians we have 2 obligations 1) To GOD 2) To our neighbor(where WV was deceived)
1) Clearly both Creation and Scripture testify to the wickedness of homosexual behaviour
2) Its in our neighbors best interest that they understand that they are in violation. Condoning that behaviour is only escorting those persons and perhaps themselves to perdition
Like you know, its not easy to be a faithful witness when the world hates you, and they will hate you when you express the above position. Like the SA fiends, the wicked will do anything to be accepted by their peers
