California Episcopal Church Holds ‘Beyoncé Mass’ Where Hundreds ‘Worship’ With Her Songs!

“We have a community that is youthful and loving and looks to the world as a partner, not an enemy,” Reverend Jude Harmon said speaking to the crowd.

I guess Jude Harmon doesn’t care what God says about being “partners” with the world. “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, now ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” James 4:4

A “church” in San Francisco, California raised eyebrows with an event they called a “Beyoncé Mass.” With matters such as bibles being outlawed in California, this “church” has nothing better to do with it’s time than to pay homage to Beyonce. 
 
With hundreds in attendance, Grace Cathedral Church says the event is a chance for people to find God through secular music. Others calling it “evil,” saying they’re trying to substitute Jesus with Beyoncé.
 
“We have a community that is youthful and loving and looks to the world as a partner, not an enemy,” Reverend Jude Harmon said speaking to the crowd.
I guess Jude Harmon doesn’t care what God says about being “partners” with the world. “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, now ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” James 4:4
 
Harmon says mostly in attendance are people of color and the LGBT community, including, “People on who other people’s narratives have been projected. Just to be honest, the church hasn’t been the best about lifting up those voices.”
 
To take things a step further, Rev. Harmon goes on to say that Beyoncé is “a better theologian than many of the pastors and priests in the church today.”
 
“That is not an exageration,” Harmon states.
 
The video includes examples of Beyoncé’s “religious symbolism” in her music and performances, from dressing as African deity’s, the Virgin Mary, and scenes in her videos that reference the Last Supper.
 
The event’s organizer, Rev. Yolanda Norton, told ABC7 News she uses Beyonce as a way to bring diverse groups together to talk about God.
 

 

Norton is an Assistant Professor of Old Testament at San Francisco Theological Seminary who teaches a class she calls, “Beyoncé and the Hebrew Bible.”
“People think we’re worshiping Beyoncé, none of that is true,” she said. “This is a way to have different kinds of conversation.”

During the service, Norton said in a separate interview, they use lyric’s from Beyoncé’s songs as examples of what the crowd’s prayers to God could be. She said the service focuses on empowering women of color and other minority communities.
“I’ve been asked time and time again, ‘Why Beyoncé?'” Norton preached to the crowd during the mass. “I believe she reminds us that you have to do your thing your way, you don’t do it on demand, you don’t do it for your oppressor, you don’t sing when they want you to sing…you sing when God calls you to sing.” 
 
Many even pointing out parts of scripture that they say rebuke this type of gathering, including 2 Timothy 4:3-4 and Galatians 1:8.
 
2 Timothy 4:3-4 
“For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”
 
Galatians 1:8 
“Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you.”

 

Ex-Preacher claims he tried believing the Bible, But “It’s Just Not True”

 His rants can be witnessed throughout YouTube as he gains a new type of crowd using “preacher skills” learned from his time as a pastor. He accepts praises and exhalations from the people no doubt making him more famous than he ever could’ve been as a preacher,[who ever heard of him before now?] even convincing his followers to give him “donations”.  

One Christmas Day, Kevin Wesley posted a question on Facebook that you don’t always expect from a pastor: “What if the bible, is NOT the word of God?”

A day later, he made a video elaborating on that idea leaving the impression that he no longer believes in God,the son of God or the bible. In one of his most recent Youtube lives  he stated that God doesnt exist, there is no son of God and the “characters” in the bible are all fabricated while wearing the ankh of Pharaoh cross and an elephant pendent around his neck.  His rants can be witnessed throughout YouTube as he gains a new type of crowd using “preacher skills” learned from his time as a pastor. He accepts praises and exhalations from the people no doubt making him more famous now than he ever could’ve been as a preacher,[who ever heard of him before now?] even convincing his followers to give him “donations”.  

I put up a post yesterday on Facebook that said, “What if the Bible is not the word of God?” Needless to say, people were appalled by — disgusted even… I’m quoting them, okay?

They said they’ve seen me preach, they have seen me cry, they have seen me minister, they have seen me with my hands raised, loving Jesus. And that’s true. I was a preacher. I was a minister. I was a dancer. All these things. I was a gospel rapper.

But if I can do all these things, and you witnessed my sincerity while I was doing these things, don’t you think I must have came across something sincere? Something that’s so valid that it shook my belief, even when I didn’t want it to?

So you say you’re going to pray for me. You don’t think I’ve prayed? You don’t think I’ve begged this Jesus I grew up believing in to just show me the validity? You don’t think I researched and tried to prove that this Bible was no doubt the inspired word of God?

I tried. And it’s just not true. Okay?

So [there] comes a time in every man’s life when he has to make a choice. I understand there’s a lot of people who saw me be Christian, who saw me love Jesus, pray to Jesus, worship Jesus. I understand that. But to all of you people that I love dearly, I have to tell you: I am making a choice to stand on what I now know to be truth. And if you don’t wanna be my friend anymore, then you were never my friend to begin with…

Wesley then rattled off a brief list of why he doesn’t accept the Bible (or the characters in it) as true. Historical evidence, for example, doesn’t back up biblical stories. The fossil record doesn’t match up with what we’d expect from a recent global flood. There were civilizations and relics that existed long before the biblical “Adam” was ever created.

 

Satanic Temple and Planned Parenthood Advocate for Abortion in Missouri

Missouri has enacted multiple laws restricting abortion, including mandating a 72-hour waiting period for an abortion

Missouri has significant restrictions on abortion, but Planned Parenthood, along with Missouri Satanists, are working to change that.

According to Slate.com, Missouri has enacted multiple laws restricting abortion, including mandating a 72-hour waiting period for an abortion, requiring abortion clinics to obtain hospital admittance privileges for patients, and requiring that patients be notified that “abortion will terminate the life of a separate, unique, living human being.”

Planned Parenthood is working to get these restrictions overturned, and members of the Satanic Temple are helping.

In 2015, a pregnant Satanist went to court to argue that requiring her to travel to a clinic twice (once for the initial appointment and once after the 72-hour waiting period to get the abortion) placed an undue financial burden on her. She also argued that the abortion restrictions hamper her “sincerely held religious beliefs” that her body is “inviolable.”

Although the case was ultimately tossed out because the plaintiff was no longer pregnant, the Satanists efforts, along with those of Planned Parenthood, have caused Missouri to relax some of its abortion restrictions.

Two new abortion clinics have opened and others will likely follow suit. Before this month, Missouri only had one operating abortion clinic.

ATLANTA Church Is BOYCOTTING Beyonce Because She Said That She Wanted To USE THE BIBLE As a MAXI PAD!!!

I plugged my menses with pages of the holy book and still coiled deep inside me was the need to know — are you cheating on me?

Social media rumor has it that a number of Atlanta mega-churches are expecting to make an announcement this week – to BOYCOTT the singer BEYONCE. These type “threats” have been made in the past regarding this woman and has not stopped  “Christians” from buying her albums or playing her music, and I’m sure that “the church” isn’t in-boxing her, sending her letters or calling her to say that she needs to repent and live a life of holiness ESPECIALLY if she’s giving them “donations”.  And how can they correct her when they support her by going to her concerts, etc. (I guess as long as she doesn’t sing against Christianity she’s okay, right?)

This woman who is also a mother and wife had the audacity to sing these lyrics:

I plugged my menses with pages of the holy book and still coiled deep inside me was the need to know — are you cheating on me?

which is what is causing an outrage. Beyonce is who she is; a man made god, a woman living in complete darkness who needs to want to see the Light of God, God wont force Himself on ANYONE, not even Beyonce’.  My question is, why do so many people call her “queen”? QUEEN OF WHAT? DARKNESS???
