Rev. Flip Benham
Here’s one I missed from the end of September – a blog post attributed to none other than Rev Flip Benham, Director of Operation Save America and Operation Rescue and famous as the man who baptized a repentant Norma McCorvey (“Roe” of “Roe vs Wade”), discussing my spiritual state (see here, scroll down – for some reason there’s no permalink):
Richard Bartholomew has the spiritual depth of a pie tin when it comes to understanding the Gospel battle we are involved in. He has a tremendous amount of knowledge but little spiritual depth. He is like a swamp – a mile wide but only an inch deep.
Benham is annoyed at a short blog entry I did concerning Operation Save America’s protest against a Muslim group holding a open-air prayer meeting at the Capitol in Washington DC. He goes on to explain the true spiritual depths of the event:
What took place in Washington D.C., this past Friday, September 25, 2009, was no attempt at all for Muslims to approach Almighty God in prayer. They can’t reach God for there is no other Name by which men must approach God but the Name of Jesus. It was a strategic attempt by the devil to dethrone the God of the Bible. It was an attempt to replace or level the playing field between the living and true God of the Bible with the false god Allah. It was an attempt to declare that God and Allah are one and the same – they are not! Islam is a lie birthed in the deepest pits of hell. It will not be tolerated by God and it certainly must not be tolerated by Christians…When Muslims gathered on the lawn of our nation’s Capital, they were declaring that “Allah is God and there is no other, and Mohammed is his prophet.” This is the first pillar of Islam. It is a contradiction and violation of the first Commandment of Almighty God, “Thou shalt have no other God’s before me.” We Christians have allowed God’s House to become a den of robbers. We refuse to wield the sharp double edged Sword of the Spirit and stand for God’s Truth in the Name of Jesus.
By the way, the backs of the t-shirts are even better…
(Second t-shirt reads “Abortion is Murder; Homosexuality is Sin; Islam is a Lie; Evolution is a Delusion; Feminism is Rebellion; Liberalism is a False Religion; Conservativism is [Pretend] Salt” – thanks to a commentator for identifying the missing word)
Benham’s denunciation comes in the wake of a rebuke from the Official Street Preachers I received in February.
