Australian Pentecostals sleep while Louisiana burns

  About 1 million litres  PER DAY of crude oil are belching from an American oil drilling operation gone tragicallywrong.  Eleven men out of 126 workers perished.  

  BP is the main owner (65%) of the Canyon oil well which exploded and sunk 40 miles offshore from the Louisiana coast.  The Deepwater Horizon oil rig was owned by Transocean of Switzerland. The controversial Halliburton is said to share responsibility for the disaster. 

 Many thousands of volunteers and paid workers are frantically trying to stop the huge oil flows (more than 130 miles by 70 miles) from reaching the coast and causing yet another oil company catastrophe.

 Ten wildlife refuges are being drenched with mankind’s fixation & lust for BLACK GOLD (OIL).

President Obama actually allowed oil drilling to move closer to shore.

 But back in Australia, few are concerned. The newspapers don’t give their front pages to this global disaster.

How many Churches mentioned the Louisiana tragedy on Sunday – yet alone prayed. Bet your bottom greasy dollar that NO Pentecostal Churches (eg those in the mammoth Australian Christian Churches group) bothered to mention the crisis. That organisation is only interested in it’s own increasingly fat pockets.

Comment by Ruby James on post  “Brian Houston visits Planetshakers”

 I thank God that there are people who still believe in repentance, humility, reverence, honesty. This prosperity gospel is so wicked, so destructive. And if you question it, you’re thrown out. Yes, once the gospel was free, but to find Christ cost you everything. Now, it just costs you money, but you don’t have to lay anything else at the altar of God according to them, you just have to focus on money. The love of money is the root of all evil.

     Of course, you go to Planetshakers, Joanna.  A banker too!  How nice.  You’d know about frauds.

      How many Church attenders did Pastor Mike G brainwash?  How many around Australia and further did he lie to, steal moneys, and turn away from authentic Christian values?  How many kids did he emotionally crush with his Planetshakers-approved ruse?  How many legitimate cancer patients did he make even more distressed by using the ultimate illness for his glorification?

     How many kids did he physically mentally or sexually interfere with by his unrestricted ‘carte blanche’ access to Planetshakers, Hillsong and other AOG megachurches?  (See Frank Houston, Mike Warnke, Pat Meseti, …)

     Go on, support your cowardly leaders, their ‘hush-hush’ attitudes and PR.  Don’t ask questions.  Don’t think for yourself for that’d be too dangerous. 

     WWJD?  Have you heard of Ananias and Sapphira?  Obviously the people running AOG/ACC megachurches haven’t either.

    Comments most welcome…

    Don’t be a fool, PlanetshakersInsider

       Has con-man Mikey Guglielmucci, his empty-headed wife, Planetsnakers, EDGE Church, $piritual AOG/ACC Executive, incestuous AOG ‘Church-Bank, won the war?? 

      With PlanetshakersInsider accepting ‘lay down misere’ surrender terms from the ACC Executive, it appears so.

      Has he/she also fallen in love with money & travel & meeting psycophantic  ‘YES-MEN’?  (psychophantic= psychology + sycophant).

       Congrats on your $8,000 conference.  ~Pastor Michael Cancer will be very pleased!~

        It is a sad day when one of the Pentecostal thinkers (needle in a haystack) contemplates giving up criticism.  There is so much to do to expose what is a  festering and influential sore inside the Australian Church.

    You are a whistleblower.  You are needed.  Your talents are not wasted.  Other thinkers – now and in future – depend on access to QUALITY  information.

    KEY CHANGES
    from Gospel singer Ray Boltz shares coming out journey – Washington Blade queer magazine)

    Joey DiGuglielmo [Not a Planetshakers Pastor!!]
    September 12, 2008

    Ray Boltz wanted to do something nice.

    He’d visited the mostly gay Jesus Metropolitan Community Church in Indianapolis and liked Rev. Jeff Miner, so he decided to give him a copy of his 1997 holiday recording, “A Christmas Album.”

    It was one of 16 albums Boltz, 55, recorded during a nearly 20-year recording career that saw the Muncie, Ind., native become one of the better-known singer/songwriters in Contemporary Christian Music, a genre born out of the Jesus Movement of the early 1970s that made singers like Amy Grant, Sandi Patty, Michael W. Smith and Steven Curtis Chapman superstars in religious music with occasional excursions into mainstream pop culture.

    Boltz, with about 4.5 million LPs, cassettes and CDs sold, never made a splash outside of Christian circles but he never really tried. With a handful of RIAA Gold-certified albums, three Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association (GMA) and a string of 12 No. 1 hits on Christian radio, Boltz is a household name in evangelical circles. “Thank You,” (music) a sentimental song about a dream in which a Christian thanks the Sunday school teacher who led him to embrace Christ, is his signature song. It was the GMA song of the year in 1990 and has become a staple of Christian funerals. Other Boltz trademarks are “Watch the Lamb,” “The Anchor Holds” & “I Pledge Allegiance to the Lamb (Godtubevideo, location – Colosseum)”


    Boltz brought the Christmas CD with him to MCC-Indianapolis on that cold, sunny December 2007 day and slipped it to see Jeff Miner on his way out with a note taped to it on which he’d jotted his e-mail address.

    Ostensibly it was an innocuous thing to do, but for Boltz it was a big step. It eventually led to him opening up to Miner, one of the first times anybody outside Boltz’s circle of family and friends knew his long-kept secret: Ray Boltz is gay.

    “I didn’t make a big deal of it,” Boltz says during a 90-minute phone interview from his home in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. “But I was trembling. I’d kind of had two identities since I moved to Florida where I kind of had this other life and I’d never merged the two lives. This was the first time I was taking my old life as Ray Boltz, the gospel singer, and merging it with my new life. Emotionally it was kind of a big deal to think about that.”

    Ray Boltz was tired of living a lie.

    He’d gotten to a point nearly three years before where he couldn’t continue down the road his life had gone.

    His 33-year marriage to ex-wife Carol was, he says, largely a happy one. It produced four children — three daughters and a son who are now between 22 and 32 — but family life and going through the motions of being straight had grown so wearying to Boltz, he was in a serious depression, had been in therapy for years, was on Prozac and other anti-depressants and had been, for a time, suicidal.

    “I thought I hid it really well,” he says. “I didn’t know people could see what I was going through, the darkness and the struggle. After I came out to my family, one of my daughters said she was afraid to walk in my bedroom because she was afraid she’d find me — that I’d done something to myself. And I didn’t even know they’d picked it up.”

    The Boltz family remembers Dec. 26, 2004 for two reasons: the tsunami in the Indian Ocean but also the tsunami that their husband and father unleashed when he told them what had been bothering him for so many years.

    Gay Christian Movement WATCH

    The AOG takes this matter VERY seriously

    The Assemblies of God (also grandly known as Australian Christian Churches) wants you to know it takes the Michael G issue very seriously.

    How so??  On August 20, the AOG Executive issued a  mere 7-line statement of concern.  Crocodile tears indeed??

    AWESOME HAILSONG SONG CONTEST

    The HAILSONG SONG FACTORY, in collusion with Planetsnakers, is looking for the next Mikey Guglielmucci (now on sick leave).

    We are having a SONG CONTEST!!!  FUN!!  FUN!!  FUN! As AOG youth leaders – trust ’em! – always say,It’ll be awesome.”

    Right. We need alternatives to the words to HEALER (now disfellowshipped). We need any creative input into the fiasco.

    We need to show that we have even more imagination than Pastor Michael Gugli Mucho.

    This is <U>your</U> chance to outshine Australian Idol/Paradise AOG-crooner Guy Sebastian. OK, that mightn’t be hard! You can be HAILSONG’S next Youth guru. But let’s recall those Lyrics blasting the AOG universe and see Conman Mike at his best.
