Misleading Information About AWAB
By David J. Stewart | February 2015
AWAB (The Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists) is a pro-gay-rights activist group working to infiltrate churches with the homosexual movement. It is tragic that churches are embracing same-sex marriages. I am confident that the time will soon come, when all the churches will lose their 501c3 tax-exemption status, unless they agree to coddle homosexuals by going along with the federal government's rules.
Romans 16:18, “For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”
The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule on the same-sex issue in April of 2015 . . .
AWAB supports churches and communities of faith who welcome and affirm All of God's children regardless of sexual or gender identity. We seek to be a place where God's love is revealed in and through us, and where the command to "love your neighbor as yourself" includes all humanity, even those whom we do not understand or disagree with. Therefore, we call upon the Southern Baptist Convention to recant this resolution and to allow God's healing grace to be present in the life of the SBC. ...

The group AWAB is misleading in my humble opinion, because they claim to be exercising Christ's love for unrepentant homosexuals. And that's the key word “unrepentant.”
One foolish AWAB board member writes...
“I'm thankful that my own American Baptist faith is not hateful, unlike the fear expressed in the SBC's misguided resolution. For me, it's an issue of "What would Jesus do?" I believe Jesus would love and accept ALL His sheep, regardless of whether their sex-assignment at birth matches the gender identity of their soul.”

Kindly, Miss Knauerhase is not right with God and is errant in her thinking. She calls the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) “hateful,” but they are not hateful against people, they are hateful against evil. They are obeying God in this matter at the SBC. Psalms 97:10, “Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.” Homosexuality is a sin, but the homosexual agenda is evil. Evil is planned sin. Evil is deliberate sin. The homosexual agenda seeks to normalized lesbianism, homosexuality, bisexuality and transgenders in society, including in all the churches. This is evil of the worst sort. Christian believers are commanded in Psalms 97:10 to HATE EVIL, just as Jesus hates evil (Hebrews 1:9). Miss Knauerhase is twisting the Scriptures, attempting to use God's love as an excuse for justifying sinful behavior.
Yes, God loves sinners, and is willing to forgive them on the basis of Christ's sacrifice on the cross; but God will never accept homosexuality as an acceptable form of behavior. It is sin. AWAB demonizes churches for preaching from the pulpit that homosexuality is a sin, going as far as to claim that preaching against homosexuality harms individuals and families...
AWAB Calls on the SBC to Recant Anti-Transgender Resolution
June 13, 2014
The Board and Staff of the Association of Welcoming & Affirming Baptists (AWAB) are angered by the Southern Baptist Convention's resolution condemning the transgender community as particularly "fallen" and, if not repentant of their very nature, outside the fellowship of the church and communion with God. We are gravely concerned about the message this sends to transgender persons, a message that says "if you pray and give your life over to Christ you will be healed.”
This is the same message that has been told to gay and lesbian people for decades. This practice has spawned the “Ex-Gay” ministry movement as well as the pseudo-psychology of reparative therapy. These practices have caused significant harm to individuals, their families and the churches that they are and have been a part of. The resolution on transgender people passed at the 2014 annual meeting of the SBC will surely spawn the same kinds of ministries and practices aimed at the Transgender Community. [emphasis added]

Of course, the exact opposite is true, not preaching against the evils of homosexuality harms individuals, families and churches. We are living in a wicked generation that has forgotten the God of the Bible. These are the end times!
Few Christians do their homework. I have spoken with umpteen professed Christians who live in isolation in their own little world, oblivious to the Luciferian conspiracy at work in the world (aka, the New World Order). They couldn't care less about what really happened on 09/11/01 when the World Trade Center (WTC) was bombed in New York. There is a ton of eye-opening, shocking and important information available to educate Christians, but most of them just don't care. Most believers are complacent in their apostate churches, lukewarm, waiting for the Rapture to take them away so they don't have to deal with any of “the negatives.”
Well, I am one of the few born-again Christians who do care. I CARE about the truth! That's why I made my website ministries, so that I can help others find the truth and not be deceived by the Devil. I am not alone. One such truth-seeker and faithful Christian was Commander William Guy Carr (1895-1959), who wrote several eye-opening excellent books exposing The Luciferian Conspiracy, which began in Heaven when Lucifer tried to usurp control over the throne of God (Isaiah 14:12-14 - King James Bible).
If you are a true born-again Christian, you ought to be asking why everything is getting so bad these days. If you don't already know, here's the answer . . .
According to Satanism, it is perfectly right and proper to encourage moral turpitude in all classes of society, and at all levels of government, by convincing the public that abnormal sexual behavior is normal; and that the moral code accepted by civilized nations, based on the Commandments of God and teachings of the Holy Scriptures, is old fashioned and introduced by Church and state for selfish purposes. But behind the building up of a WRONG conception of sex, and its purposes as intended by God our Creator, is the Satanic principle that "The best revolutionary is a youth absolutely devoid of morals." When Lenin stated this as recorded in Pawns in The Game he only confirmed what other Satanists had stated a hundred times previously.
It is Satanism, as it is direct from THE TOP, which is responsible for the increase in juvenile delinquency, but those selected by the governments of the world to investigate this problem invariably give every CAUSE other than the right one. [emphasis added]

The Devil knows that by pumping all forms of Godlessness, wickedness, sleaze and bizarre behavior into American society, that each succeeding generation will become more morally bankrupt than the previous! It was Russian Communist dictator, Vladimir Lenin who said, “The best Revolutionary is a youth devoid of morals.” There's only one thing more efficient to destroy a nation than a youth with morals; and that is an indifferent church pastor who doesn't fuss over which Bible version is God's Word, goes along with multiple plans of salvation, and is too much of a coward (or loves mammon and doesn't want to offend people) to preach against anything! Complacent pastors are destroying America!
If your pastor has been to an AWAB meeting, something is very wrong. If your church doesn't preach against the sin of homosexuality (or homosexuality as a “sin”), get out before you also become corrupted! Homosexuality is a horrible sin. The false notion that we'll never reach homosexuals for Christ by preaching against their sin is a big lie. The truth is that if your church has to shut up about homosexuality as a sin to attract homosexuals into church services, those wicked homos are not really coming to a righteous Christ, they're coming to a worldly church. John 3:20, “For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.”
We as faithful Christians, who preach against sin are not destroying families; it is indifferent churches who remain silent about sin who are destroying people's lives. I heard one pastor say that he was praying for one million dollars to build a new church auditorium. It seems that every pastor needs a million dollars these days! Woe unto the pastors! Woe unto the churches who are afflicted by bad pastors. A pastor should be consumed with soul-winning. You hardly hear anything about soul-winning these days in the churches.
Christianity began in Israel as a new birth. When it went to Greece, Christianity became a philosophy. When it spread throughout Europe it became a culture. When it came to Rome, Christianity became an organization. And tragically, when it came to America, Christianity became a business! Let's get back to the truth that Christianity is a new birth. I am so leery of anything labeled as “Christian” that is making money for anyone. Everything is about money these days. Everybody has something to sell. Most Christians tithe because they have been indoctrinated to blindly tithe, while their pastor takes extravagant trips around the world, is hardly ever in his own pulpit, and enjoys the good life. I look forward to judgment day, when those reprobate pastors receive NOTHING from the Lord Jesus Christ. I would never support a pastor who refuses to disclose his salary, or lives high on the hog.
AWAB is of the Devil, and what they are attempting to accomplish by infiltrating the churches with the homosexual agenda is of the Devil. And if your pastor(s) support AWAB in any way, they are also pulling on the same rope as the Devil.
love God who doesn't love sinners!”
(a quote by Dr. Jack Hyles classic MP3 sermon, “The Happiest Man” (happiest is the man who will not impute sin to others!)
The more that I live down here on earth, the more I don't fit! Airplanes are nothing more than flying barroom's today. My friend, you will lose out as a Christian when you get adjusted down here. DON'T GET ADJUSTED!!! (an awesome MP3 sermon by Brother Lester Roloff).
If you believe what the Bible teaches, attend a church that teaches the Bible!
