Porn Star Pastor’s Wife?

I read an article the other day and sat stunned seeing the most anti-biblical theology celebrated by pastors that I’ve seen in a while. Sure, the church in question is a “progressive Christian” church, but it didn’t make the article’s content any less jarring. The pastor’s wife is a practicing porn star. In the article, the porn star pastor’s wife shares how “God” helped her love and accept herself as well as her chosen profession.

You see, “God” loves us just the way we are. He created us just the way we are. How many times have you heard that in church? You don’t have to attend a progressive church to hear a wrong understanding of the love of God. That same misunderstanding has come into mainline and non-denominational churches. We constantly hear the reframe, “God loves the sinner, but hates the sin”. Now, it’s true that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. But make no mistake, it’s not the sin that goes to Hell but the sinner.

If I were to guess, the church in the article probably doesn’t believe in a literal Hell. After all, Rob Bell taught us that Hell is mostly a state of mind or an experience on earth. That’s not what the Bible teaches. God doesn’t love to the point that He accepts sin. God is holy and He is just, and the love that He has does not excuse sin.

Here’s the truth, God does not accept you the way you are and He doesn’t love you the way you are. If He did, Scripture would not command that we repent of sin and submit to the Lordship of Christ.

“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.” – Acts 3:19 NKJV

“And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”” – Acts 2:38 ESV

Many churches are creating a “God” and a “gospel” in their image, after their likeness. They want to indulge in sin, so they create a “God” that permits it. This is why we have a social gospel that accepts the LGBTQ agenda. The biblical gospel is offensive to the unregenerate and false professing Christians.

When I finished the article I just sat, shaking my head and thinking, what happened to the church. Granted, the true Church exists, but the tares grow with the wheat and the goats feed amongst the sheep. Sadly, the shepherds are more interested in the goats than the sheep these days. Seeker-sensitive self-help and psychology have replaced expositional verse by verse preaching. A mystical Spirit leading has replaced the sure written Word.

We are living in the days of Noah and Sodom and Gomorrah. People are doing what is right in their own eyes. Professing Christians emphasize the love of God at the expense of His holiness. It’s time for the Church to repent of preaching a different gospel. It’s time to repent of preaching an unholy love, it’s time to repent of emphasizing experience over exposition, it’s time to repent of self-centered preaching and start proclaiming the sovereignty and holiness of God again.

God doesn’t love you in your sin, He’s calling you out of it. He doesn’t understand your sin, He abhors it. Christian, the time for games is over. Repent and turn back. It’s time to return and do your first work over again. God loves you so much that He calls you to repentance. When you come to the place you no longer here repent is when God has given you over to your sin when your conscience has been seared, and that is not a place you want to be. Repent of your sin, while the pull is still there. Submit to the Lordship of Christ and walk rightly before God.
