The Tornado, the Lutherans, and Homosexuality


By John Piper
August 20, 2009

I saw the fast-moving, misshapen, unusually-wide funnel over downtown Minneapolis from Seven Corners. I said to Kevin Dau, "That looks serious."

It was. Serious in more ways than one. A friend who drove down to see the damage wrote,

On a day when no severe weather was predicted or expected...a tornado forms, baffling the weather experts-most saying they've never seen anything like it. It happens right in the city. The city: Minneapolis.

The tornado happens on a Wednesday...during the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America's national convention in the Minneapolis Convention Center. The convention is using Central Lutheran across the street as its church. The church has set up tents around it's building for this purpose.

According to the ELCA's printed convention schedule, at 2 PM on Wednesday, August 19, the 5th session of the convention was to begin. The main item of the session: "Consideration: Proposed Social Statement on Human Sexuality." The issue is whether practicing homosexuality is a behavior that should disqualify a person from the pastoral ministry.

The eyewitness of the damage continues:

This curious tornado touches down just south of downtown and follows 35W straight towards the city center. It crosses I94. It is now downtown.

The time: 2PM.

The first buildings on the downtown side of I94 are the Minneapolis Convention Center and Central Lutheran. The tornado severely damages the convention center roof, shreds the tents, breaks off the steeple of Central Lutheran, splits what's left of the steeple in two...and then lifts.

Let me venture an interpretation of this Providence with some biblical warrant.

1. The unrepentant practice of homosexual behavior (like other sins) will exclude a person from the kingdom of God.

The unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)

2. The church has always embraced those who forsake sexual sin but who still struggle with homosexual desires, rejoicing with them that all our fallen, sinful, disordered lives (all of us, no exceptions) are forgiven if we turn to Christ in faith. Such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:11)

3. Therefore, official church pronouncements that condone the very sins that keep people out of the kingdom of God, are evil. They dishonor God, contradict Scripture, and implicitly promote damnation where salvation is freely offered.

4. Jesus Christ controls the wind, including all tornados.
Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? (Mark 4:41)

5. When asked about a seemingly random calamity near Jerusalem where 18 people were killed, Jesus answered in general terms-an answer that would cover calamities in Minneapolis, Taiwan, or Baghdad. God's message is repent, because none of us will otherwise escape God's judgment.

Jesus: "Those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish." (Luke 13:4-5)

6. Conclusion: The tornado in Minneapolis was a gentle but firm warning to the ELCA and all of us: Turn from the approval of sin. Turn from the promotion of behaviors that lead to destruction. Reaffirm the great Lutheran heritage of allegiance to the truth and authority of Scripture. Turn back from distorting the grace of God into sensuality. Rejoice in the pardon of the cross of Christ and its power to transform left and right wing sinners.

Preacher threatened with arrest for reading out extracts from the Bible in public

A street preacher is at the centre of a row over freedom of speech after police threatened to arrest him for reading the Bible in public.

Lawyers acting for Miguel Hayworth, 29, have demanded an explanation over the alleged intimidation and abuse of power by three officers.

Andrea Minichiello Williams, the director of the Christian Legal Centre, has written to Peter Fahy, the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester, over the incident.

"They were clearly told that reading the Bible and preaching can be offensive and that they could be arrested," she wrote.

"Furthermore, they were subjected to abuse and intimidation. They were told that they were being monitored and filmed," she wrote.

Critics claimed that a Muslim preaching his religion in the street would not have been treated in such a way by police.

Mr Hayworth, a voluntary worker who is married with two children, has been a street preacher in the Manchester area for five years and he is often accompanied by his father.

He said that he and his father had decided to preach from 11am at St Ann's Square in Manchester instead of their usual place on nearby Market Street.

He was reading passages from the Old and New Testaments while his father distributed leaflets containing the message of the gospel.

"At 2pm, I was approached on more than one occasion by several police officers who falsely accused me, stating that I was inciting hatred with homophobic and racial comments," he said.

"One plain-clothed officer, who was with the other two uniformed officers, said: 'It is against the law to preach and hand out tracts: preaching causes offence and handing out tracts is harassment and could result in an arrest.'"

Mr Hayworth said that at about 2.30pm a second officer confirmed that his colleague had accused the preacher of inciting religious and racial hatred and wanted to warn him that this was an arrestable offence.

The second officer, Mr Hayworth claimed, also warned him his actions were being videoed and recorded, and he stopped preaching.

Some passages in the Bible are regarded as homophobic. For example, sections read out by Mr Hayworth in St Ann's Square included Romans Chapter 1 Verse 27, from the King James Bible, which says: "And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly..."

He also read from 1 Corinthians Chapter 6, Verse 9: "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind."

Mr Hayworth says he cannot understand how the racism complaint arose. Shortly after being confronted by the police, he stopped reading from the Bible.

He and his father later approached the Christian Legal Centre, which seeks to promote religious freedom and, particularly, to protect Christians and Christianity.

The centre, in turn, has instructed Paul Diamond, the leading religious rights barrister.

The centre and Mr Diamond believe that the police abused their powers during the dispute on Saturday, July 25.

It is against the law to use offensive, threatening or abusive words or behaviour. It is also an offence to incite hatred on grounds of race, religion or sexual orientation.

However, in its letter to the police, the Christian Legal Centre said: "Freedom of religious and freedom of religious speech is specifically protected by the European Convention on Human Rights."

The letter added: "This means that any restriction on the 'right' to evangelise will have to be justified by the Police by a 'pressing social need'.

"In a free society, this is very difficult to do; and a few complaints by irate individuals will not suffice."

The centre and Mr Diamond have represented a number of Christians in alleged religious discrimination cases.

Earlier this year The Sunday Telegraph revealed that Caroline Petrie, a nurse, has been suspended from her job for offering to pray for an elderly patient's recovery from illness. She was later reinstated.

Chief Inspector Chris Hill, of Greater Manchester Police, said: "Police were called to St Ann's Square in Manchester city centre following complaints from members of the public who considered the comments being made by two street preachers as racist and homophobic.

"When spoken to, the men said they were quoting from the Bible. The officers confirmed they were entitled to preach on the street, but advised them offensive behaviour is not acceptable.

"No one was arrested. I have received a letter from the Christian Legal Centre and will respond in due course."

Guyana Jungle Ministry-

David's (aflame4God) ministry in Wakapoa, Guyana, South America. There's something special about "Charity", which is a small port town in Guyana. It takes a long time to get there. It is a strategic place! Here the trappings of town life end. Roads, shops, cars, plumbing, and electricity all end in this very small town. From there you must travel by boat or canoe on the Pomeroon, Wakapoa, or Moruca Rivers. As you travel along these rivers, you'll see many small wooden houses with palm leaf roofs. They call them "trash roofs". Instead of cars, you will see a canoe parked on the edge of the river bank. These are the Amerindian villages, with names such as Kabakaburi, Carawab, Siriki, Akawini, Kamwatta, etc. These rivers are a water highway, with many old canoes going up and down the river. Some of the canoers are very old, weather beaten Arawaks or Carib Indians. Others will be very small children in worn torn clothes paddling away. It is a wonderful sight! They are simple, quiet, strong, and friendly people. Everyday is a struggle to survive. From the town noise to the jungle sounds you will hear the call of the beautiful Toucan; the chatter of the Amazon Green Parrotts (One day my son and I saw fifty of them in three coconut trees), the croaking of the bull frogs at night, and large birds making strange noises at 5:30 AM (You don't need an alarm clock!).

I've been honored to minister God's Word in many of these villages. My trips there have always been fruitful and the Lord has worked powerful changes in many lives. It is such a joy to worship with these people. They are very attentive and eager to hear God's Word, while sitting on old wooden benches in very hot and humid weather. They do not complain. When I go there I have to bathe in a very small, stagnant creek where the water is blackish in color. You simply soap up and use a small bowl to rinse off! The river does have some Piranhas in it. We met one boy with four toes. The Piranhas got the fifth toe... We also saw a good sized alligator on the way home from church one night! Anyone for a swim?? It is here at these various churches that I have preached the Word, established Christian Lending Libraries, and continue to assist the pastors financially. For example, my one pastor friend has a family of eight and sometimes lives off of $50.00 a month which equals$1.65 a day. I am very honored to have these precious people as my brothers and sisters in Christ. In fact, my adopted daughter is a Carib Indian who lived way up in the mountains of a small island called Dominica. My friend, we serve a missionary God that commands to go ye into all the world to preach the Gospel! Very few these days are going over seas to be missionaries or are involved in supporting missions. Jesus said in Matthew 28:19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. vs 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you..."

Brother David
1. Guyana has 6 different people groups. You cannott Live in an Ameridian village unless you are an Ameridian.
2. You cannot enter an Ameridian Village without permission of the village Chief.
3. There is no stable economy in these remote areas. The men have to leave wife and children for months at a time to find work.
4. No alcohol is allowed in an Ameridian village. This rule is not always strictly enforced.
5. It is a true miracle that I was able to get into these areas. That is a story in itself.

Establishing the Authenic Gospel

Establishing the Authentic Gospel is based on Richard Bennetts own 14-year search for the true Gospel as a priest, including, in particular, his struggle with man-centered Evangelicals. Citing names, Richard gives examples of humanistic ways in which modern Evangelists give a so-called gospel. These illustrate the wholesale departure from the true Gospel that is taking place in the modern world. Permeating Richards address is the Lords invincible Gospel of grace. Please make this DVD known to others, and kindly link to it, if possible. Thank you.
