Rock Church -- home of who knows what!
The above picture is posted on the facebook site of "pastor" Chuck Tate. I use the term "pastor" loosely as you will see soon enough. The supposed pastor is the one on the right in the picture. This is all a part of the entertainment value that he places in the pulpit of his church. I do want to emphasize that it is "his" church and not God's church. God did not need entertainment in order for people to listen to him. This church is a rock and roll church filled with tattoo wearing people who do not know God's Word. They have been misled by a pastor, a prophet, a lost soul who distorts God's Word to mean what he wants it to mean.
Facebook tells us a lot about a person and what he believes. Check out some of this pastor's likes on his page.
He follows a man who was a vocalist for Full Devil Jacket who later started his own rock band (of which there is no mention of following Jesus Christ).
Another one is a group called Beer Goggle Prophet (you guessed it, they promote beer drinking)
How about promoting Liberty n Justice and their Cigar Chronicles? (this one is filled with smoking, drinking and foul mouth language)
Mark Driscoll -- the foul mouth pastor!
The Purpose Driven Life -- by none other than the false teacher Rick Warren!
How about some of these movies and characters that this pastor emboldens?
School of Rock with Jack Black who has been on screen blaspheming Jesus by pretending to be Jesus as a gay man.
Ellen DeGeneres -- the lesbian talk show hostess
The Office -- with its anti God talk, blaspheming God, taking the Lord's name in vain, etc
And finally, how about his support of stand up comedy featuring George Carlin? A man who blasphemed God from day one of his comedy routine up till the day he died. The man who had such filthy language and had no problem whether little children heard it or not. He mocked God every chance he had.
All of the above is given full support of a man who calls himself a pastor. It is disgusting to see his support of these things. Now, add to all of this the other entertainment he has on stage of his church.
Singing songs like "I've Got Friends In Low Places" and "I Can't Drive 55" and how about "Born To Be Wild" as an example. Or how about having motorcycles riding IN THE CHURCH?
This man does not seem to know what God's Word says about church.
Let all things be done decently and in order. 1 Corinthians 14:40
Here is another person he supports. Pastor Bob Daily on youtube. This man's sermons are so far removed from being biblical. His body is covered with tattoo's and he tells people that he uses his tattoos to witness to people. He contorts his body in different positions to tell people his story. What ever happened to just telling people what God's Word says? No, what has happened is this. People are looking for pastors to preach a word to them that will tickle their ears. They do not want to know what God's Word says, they only want to know that God loves them. No mention of God's Wrath or His Judgment. Only Grace without Wrath. God is 100% Love and He is 100% Wrath.
What ever happened to churches that used to preach only God's Word without fail?
Today's church is into entertainment. Why? Because they do not believe God's Word is able to bring lost people to Christ. What is happening is they are creating false prophets and false converts. As long as people continue to follow this kind of false teaching, they will end up in hell since they do not repent of their sins. Without repentance, there is no salvation!
The pastor of Rock Church needs to check himself as to whether he is, in fact, saved. Because he is misleading his flock in the wrong direction. He has actually given a sermon where he mocks christians who say you should not mark your body. It is disgusting to hear him preach his message. I say it is "his" message because it is not of God to mock christians.
Just a few more to show his lack of discernment.
Joel Osteen -- a false teacher who distorts God's Word by changing it to fit his sermons (messages).
Rick Warren -- the one who believes that christians and muslims need to get along with each other.
Our world is falling apart right before our eyes. We have a muslim president in office and supposed christians have no clue as to the danger he presents to us.
You have two choices. Either go to a bible believing church that faithfully preaches God's Word from the KJV Bible...
go to a church (a better word would be to go to a building pretending to be a church) that has a pastor who endorses VULGAR LANGUAGE, SMOKING, DRINKING, ADULTERY, BLASPHEMY, DISHONORING GOD IN ALL THINGS, PROMOTING FALSE PROPHETS AND THEIR TEACHINGS.
THE PASTOR OF THIS KIND OF CHURCH DOES NOT KNOW GOD -- YOU CAN BE SURE OF THAT!
After listening to another one of his sermons this pastor says that people like to hear things that "sound" true but in fact are not true. He says that he does not do that. He only preaches the truth according to him. Then as you continue to listen to his sermon he says that God does not hate, He only loves. He says don't be deceived by lies that sound like the truth. And yet, his teachings are deceitful. Now, back to the comment that he says God does not hate. All one has to do is go to: Psalm 5:5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
Psalm 11:5 The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
Leviticus 20:23 And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.
Proverbs 6:16-19 These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness [that] speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Hosea 9:15 All their wickedness [is] in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine house, I will love them no more: all their princes [are] revolters.
Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Chuck Tate's sermon dealt with the fact that God does not hate and He is only love. Mr. Tate is ignoring Scripture when he makes such a claim. It is not the sin that God hates (even though he does hate sin), it is the sinner who commits the sin and does not repent of his sins. God's Word says he HATES the sinner.
to all those who plan to comment using foul language, just realize that all you are doing is proving my point about a false preacher who is misleading his flock. His sermon is "close" to being true, but being close is not enough. It MUST be absolutely biblical. He supports smoking, drinking, cussing and vulgar language and meditative trances by supporting groups like The Cigar Chronicles. He puts on a good mask that looks like Christianity but his inner soul is lacking and supporting the ungodly way of living.
Find a church that believes in holiness. We are to love the things that God loves.
Look again at smoking, drinking, cussing, vulgar language and meditative trances. What does the bible say on these. Here is one verse to consider out of many.
1 Corinthians 6:12 which says All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
Being brought under the power of alcohol, drugs, smoking and of course, meditation are all bad for you. The cussing is found in James where it speaks of our tongue and what comes out of the mouth shows what is in our heart. Some people have a "need" to have a tattoo, they have come under the power of that thing they put on their skin. One is not enough, they MUST keep getting more and more tattoos. This verse in Corinthians is followed later on by this one...
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
Glorify God in your body. Glorify God! Glorify Him! All that you have comes from God. Even the very money that you spend to help a worker of the devil continue his trade, even it belongs to God and yet you would rather allow someone to continue selling cigarettes by supporting them, you would rather support a tattoo artist so he can put the works of the devil on the next customer. The money belongs to God and I would be willing to say that those people who are caught up in their habits, do not give to God that which is His. They maybe give a very small amount of money and feel they are tithing. To tithe is to give at least 10% of your gross income.
What will it take for people to see that when pastor's feel they must entertain people in order to get them to come into the church, they are actually telling the world that they do not believe God's Word to be true and powerful (they may say they believe, but their very actions prove otherwise.).
Run from this kind of church. Do not walk, do not look back but run from this place. Find a bible believing, HOLY Church to attend. You do not need to be entertained with stupid acts and tricks -- that is of the DEVIL.
