VICTORY CHURCH CWMBRAN SWANKY BLACK AND WHITE BALL AT £30 A TICKET IS AN INSULT TO POOR COMMUNITY
Is a black and white ball something that most members of Victory Church can relate to or participate in, or does it re-emphasise the elitist “them and us”, the “haves and have nots” situation which exists at Victory Church in Cwmbran? A black and white ball is no doubt quite alien to the many unemployed people that Taylor professes attend his church, the vulnerable VO UK residents and to most of the poverty stricken population of South Wales. The pretentious image that Taylor and Parsons portray to the world is far from inclusive, and like so many other things at Victory Church, completely fake as previously reported:
None of the alleged miracle “healings” at Victory Church can be medically verified.
Taylor and Parsons titles and qualifications are suspect: Rev. Richard Taylor Dip Th, HNC bus management; Pastor Andrew Parsons BA(Hon)Th, Dip AdCM, DipPCB, DipPCEd, CG Cert Ed.http://bewareofthewolves.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/call-no-man-your-father-matthew-239_9.html
The equality of all believers should be a high priority of the true church. A model that flaunts the prosperity and position of the privileged few puts a wedge between rich and poor under the guise of a supposedly good cause. This is completely unacceptable. There are no second class citizens in the kingdom of God. Any so called “church” that makes people feel like second class citizens should be avoided like the plague.
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbour as yourself.” (Luke 10/27)
My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? But you have dishonoured the poor man. (James 2/1-6)
But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? (John 3/17)
HOPE FOR JUSTICE
Hope For Justice are a so called “Christian” organisation involved with ecumenism, having links with “social gospel church” Willow Creek and the apostate Assemblies of God. Ben Cooley CEO of Hope for Justice has shared a platform with proven AOG false prophet Phil Pringle. Cooley also has the support of the pro-gay, double minded ecumenical Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. https://twitter.com/BenCooley Cooley's tag line seems to be “All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.” a saying attributed to Edmund Burke. A worthy cause is admirable if that is what Cooley is really about; but with a Christ-less social gospel, Hope For Justice is at best little more than a worldly endeavour by do-gooders, and at worst is a deception straight from the pit of hell. The priority of the apostles of Jesus Christ was preaching the gospel: Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel! (1 Corinthians 9/16) All endeavours to do good follow this priority scripturally. There is not one word of scripture on the Hope For Justice website.
Hope For Justice boasts that since the charity was founded five years ago they have seen over 100 people rescued from human trafficking. This equates to about twenty people a year. In monetary terms, only 5% of the budget of Hope For Justice has effectively helped actual victims of human trafficking. One person saved from human trafficking is inestimable and I am not decrying the plight of these people; but my point is that this amount of money (approximately £600,000 annual budget) and manpower (fourteen employees) has produced tiny results in real terms, apart from their obvious success at marketing and raising money from swanky fund-raising events.
Hope for Justice claims to be “Christian” but publishes no specific details about what exactly they mean by “Christian” on their website. Neither do they publish any details about the salaries of the CEO or other members of staff. The outrageous salaries of CEO's of charitable organisations has been in the news very recently. On the 6th of August, the Telegraph reported that thirty charity CEO's were enjoying salaries of more than £100,000 a year. http://www.telegraph.co.uk Increasingly people are being warned not to give to charities who are not open about the salaries paid to their CEO's, and Hope For Justice is one such organisation.
Just like their friends at Willow Creek, social justice is high on the Hope For Justice agenda, but the guise of helping the poor and vulnerable is a classic ploy of the enemy at the expense of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The social justice movement are covertly pushing a radical political agenda that supports homosexual marriage and candidates that support abortion very often in the guise of “Christianity”.
In the Bible, only two people are called the “Son of Perdition”, Judas Iscariot and the final Antichrist who is yet to appear. Satan himself actually enters into both these men (Luke 22/3; John 13/27). Judas Iscariot, a major type of the Antichrist, was both a social justice advocate (supposedly) and the money man the Bible describes as a thief.
But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples (he who was about to betray him), said,“Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” He said this, not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief, and having charge of the moneybag he used to help himself to what was put into it. (John 12/4-6) See also Zechariah 11/12-13; Matthew 26/15, 27/3-9.
The final Antichrist will perpetuate the greatest deception in history when he claims to be God (2 Thessalonians 2; 3-4). Like Judas Iscariot, he will be very concerned about social justice, but this will be a mask. In reality he will be the enemy of God and all genuine believers in Jesus Christ! Social justice is important of course and the terrible things that happen to victims of human trafficking are appalling, but here is the rub - beware of those promoting social justice in the name of Christianity at the expense of the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
