Russell Moore: Many Church Leaders 'Fine' With Hugh Hefner's 'Idea of Success'
President of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, Russell Moore, condemned the "idea of success" propagated by the late Playboy magazine founder, Hugh Hefner, and called out "many church leaders" who seem "fine" with the situation as civil rights activist, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, saluted the iconic businessman's influence on American culture.

Playboy Enterprises announced Hefner's death from natural causes Wednesday at the Playboy mansion in California. He was 91.

"Hugh M. Hefner, the American icon who in 1953 introduced the world to Playboy magazine and built the company into one of the most recognizable American global brands in history, peacefully passed away today from natural causes at his home, the Playboy mansion, surrounded by loved ones. He was 91 years old," the company said in a statement. ...

Good Morning Penned,
If you don't mind, could you bring me up to speed on Russell Moore with some references I can check out regarding him, what he is doing, saying, writing that merits a warning. Thank You.

The point is, they worried also about fitting in with the world, but mostly because they are comfortable in the world.

Good points. Hot button issues were once called sin.

I certainly "get" the comments here on SA.

I don't get RMoore's.

how would Jesse Jackson be considered a Christian in the first place? is that really the point even. its like he takes a solid point and goes on tangents that fly way off. makes one wonder if heffner's greatest sin among cultural marxists is that he was a heterosexual male. leave's one uneasy about the state of "ethics"...

shouldn't this be clear?

how is this different than sodomite weddings? yet these issues are handled with a kid glove as to make everyone feel good. a woman has an abortion, wouldn't want to make her feel bad!

selective pity I guess.

doesn't seem to address the depth and reality of sin.

What my experiences did is make my life one prodigal trial after another, I'm in my sixties and the vices are fewer, but the trials and temptations are a battle, but, it's supposed too . Anyone thinking this Christian life is easy , that's for sissies.

Being in the Prison ministry, I always allude to the difference between county jail (Hell), awaiting sentence, and prison where the sentence is carried out. (Lake of fire)

Hi Stevenr,

Thank you for your response, I see what you are saying. Yes, those who are in Christ go to be with Him upon departure from this life. As for those who die outside of Christ, Job does speak of an outer darkness, and hades is mentioned as the 'place of the dead'. It is my understanding they go to that place and await a final judgment by God, which comes at the close of this age. This is what I've read in the past concerning the matter, however, I do not depict this as 'purgatory' like the RCC does, for there is no hope for a sinner once they depart from this life.

Sorry to hear that. Some, it breaks and never escape, some, it introduces lifelong struggles, whether emotional or otherwise, and others, well, they make it, are able to relate to the pain of others, and do their part to help when the opportunities arise. So many turn to darker things and woe to the catalysts.

My point was simply to prove that some people crack at that, at some point, he WOULD be standing before God in heaven… If only for a brief time.

My comment was more tongue in cheek, but follows a line of reasoning from the Bible. You are absolutely correct in the Bible does not record the events preceding the dialogue between the rich man and Abraham. However, It is understood that those who have received the pardon from Christ will be with him… Christ himself told the thief on the cross "today thou shalt be with me in paradise." In Revelation 20 it talks about those standing before the throne and before God. At that point the dead will stand before God; my assumption is that God will not be descending to hell for this event. At that time, The books will be open, including the lambs book of life. The Bible does record that "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.." and I believe the term cast, literally thrown, would be considered a rapid movement toward said lake of fire.
I know there are many arguments as to whether or not this will only happen at the very end, or whether it's something that happens on perpetual basis… My point was not to get into a theological debate over the timeline of people burning in Hell… I think we would be better served working to point people to Christ. My point was simply to prove that some people crack at that, at some point, he WOUL

Hugh Hefner is in hell, so be it, and pray that anyone caught in this devil's lie, are rescued from the grips of pornagraphy by the life saving blood of Jesus Christ. If people knew of what sin is painted on men's souls , then they would be gladly grasp for the saving hope of Jesus Christ.

Interesting quote from one who wasn't Reformed in his theology, but a ever so powerful impacting quote though, John Y!

Right on, sister L...John, just recently you commented that you don't read the bible as much as you should, and I wonder if that means at all, but that aside, you made the very same comment several years ago. What I'm getting at is that if I had the free time that you do, how wonderful it would be to be able to read and study with that sort of time on your hands.
Seems to me that your errors are based upon the fact that your various views are based solely on your own opinion, what you were taught at first, and the comments/opinions/advice from others, whether people you know personally, or past spiritual leaders. This is a dangerous way to get your truth, and is precisely why so many are with error, because they choose to listen to man instead of emulating the Bereans.
Your Roman Catholic brothers and sisters are fully guilty of this and is why most will be held fully accountable, because they put their faith and answers in a Pope and a magisterium which tells them what and how to believe. Tragic. Anyone who does the same will be held fully accountable because God provided His Word for this very reason, so we could know, straight from Him, what's right and what's wrong, rightly dividing the word of truth, without any question, without any doubt.

"The great reformer Martin Luther once declared that the preacher who does not rebuke the sins of the rulers through God’s Word spoken publically, boldly and honestly, strengthens the sins of the tyrants, and becomes a partaker in them, and bears responsibility for them.

Now note carefully Luther’s words. They ought to sear the conscience of every pastor in America today. The preacher who does not speak out becomes a participant in the wickedness of the tyrants and bears responsibility for it. We cannot shift that responsibility to anyone else today. We cannot blame the liberal media, or the corrupt politicians, or the apathetic public for that which has overtaken America. This is our fault, for we are the ones whom God placed here at this moment in our nation’s history to be the stinging salt and the shining light. We are responsible for what has happened to America. In this year of our Lord, 2000, there is no Pontius Pilot’s basin that can cleanse the hands of America’s pastors from the guilty stain of innocent blood." From 'the sin of silence' -http://www.hiswayministries.org/fdsilence.htm
