Did God And The Bible Say That!?

Oh yeah I have seen pastors twist and turn the Word of God to suit their hearts agenda often times, even my father does that too, whenever he wants to do something terrible he looks for a passage in the Bible and twists it to his favor  . . . but that is another topic for another day . . . Hopefully not!

Watch for yourself my dear friend . . .

From the message I could gather these few points that I could not comprehend how a  man of God could say these things and people applaud at the same time.

Pastor weeks says . . .

"The Bible says the bedroom is undefiled that is why God allows undefiled stuff to take place in the bedroom"

The Problem arises when you say stuff you are supposed to say in the bedroom outside of the bedroom.

All those special words you can't say no more because you are saved, say them in your bedroom

The bedroom becomes the balance to your salvation

To many "Church Folk" In Church!?


But my Bible reads like this . . . and am taking it from two versions for when I want to read I love to juxtapose the various versions to see if they all have same meaning and most times I see some disparities in translations so I guess the pastor just took one version for the purpose of this message even at that he is not right in what he is saying.

 Heb 13:4Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.KJV

Heb 13:4Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.NIV

What part of this verse did the pastor not understand? I believe every true Christian understands the message in that verse, hence no  need for my lecture on that subject . . . 

Firstly, I would like to ask  the pastor and other men/women of God were busy soaking up all this stuff , clapping, cheering him on to continue in that erroneous message, Apart from the obvious.Absurdities  that he was busy saying  that even a little baby will laugh at such claims. . .  I would  so like to know which Bible they read and also how on Earth did arrive at that conclusion that the  "bedroom balances your Salvation".

Secondly, is the bedroom not part of world we live in? so how do you set your bedroom apart and "defile it" are you saying that there are places where by we can neglect Gods law and places where we cant?

Thirdly, I think, I know and I believe that that whole message was "Mr flesh" Talking and not the Holy Spirit in any way . . . for "the Scripture cannot be broken" if the bedroom is the balance to my salvation what about "Holiness within and without"

Why are Churches  dwelling more on the subject of sex instead of Salvation and the Love of God? painfully or funny enough they are not even succeeding with the message since  it not based on the Holy Spirit because I could see he was having a hard time getting his message through.

I also wonder If such messages worked in Church how come the incidence of divorce is still very high  possibly higher than the olden days  to borrow a line from a Nigerian Poet he would refer to the good old days as the days "when Earths Head Stood on it's neck and hand sprouted but five fingers " I would say  where the pure unadulterated gospel is preached and lives would be saved in Christ.. Things have gotten so out of control especially in the Church we claim to know more of God but yet so far from Him,

Colossians 3:5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. 6Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.[b] 7You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. 8But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. NIV

While I do agree with Pastor Weeks that God does understand what goes on inside of us that is not to say that we should continue in sin that grace may abound, pastor!   we are not to glorify the flesh.  Am pretty sure that before he went to the Altar to Preach this message he didn't study his Bible to make notes and I also wonder the type of Christians that would jump at such a message and believe he is speaking the mind of God to them thank God  "I don't have the patience to listen to such messages in Church once a pastor veers off the message of Christ I switch off and leave"


Romans 6-12

1What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?

2By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?

3Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

11In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

12Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.

13Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness.

14For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.

  1. Thank God for his words will not go unfufilled.All these people are just doing that which the bible has written about, don't be too surprised because others will still preach much worse,it is the last days.Preachers no longer preach the last days, salvation and eternal life, they preach that which the world wants to hear.

    Blessed be the name of our Lord Jesus.

    Hope you are feeling great now.

  3. Yes, people love their evil ways. When the bible talks about the "end time" it always starts with something like "be not deceived" showing the great importance of watching out for false teaching and things that "tickle our ears".

  4. ChannelofHealing,

    This is just sick. I could not have sat through this.

  5. Without a doubt he did twist the scripture!

    How can we expect such people to show us The Way of salvation?

    We can't, because such people speak from the flesh, not according to the Spirit! Thus, they throw out conscience for applause.

    And that is exactly what he got! The people applauded him as he fed them a lie.

    I am reminded of Paul's words here: "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." (2 Timothy 4:3-4 KJV)

    Indeed, such a time is at hand!

  6. Bible post hit the nail on the head. I couldn't have said it any better myself..

    This kind of teaching is very upsetting. The Bible says that we are in the world but not of the world. That church sounded like the world to me. That was such twisting of God's Word that i had to listen intently just to try and figure out where he was coming from.

    He took one word from the Bible and MESSED it all up! Applauding the lies..... SO SAD!

  8. How can what you say and do in your bedroom be seen in a different light before the LORD our GOD than what you do and say outside of the bedroom if we are always before our LORD and KING? Either we walk in HIS ways or we don't -- there's no special room we can go into, or hat we can put on that makes us suddenly exempt from living a clean and holy life.

    For example, pornography is pornography -- no matter in which room of your house you watch it.

  14. Got that Dear Alan, Godbless

  15. I grew up Charismatic/Pentecostal when they actually had sound doctrine. It seems lately that there is a dangerous trend to get the latest greatest revelation at the expense of sound doctrine and common sense. I can't beleive pastor weeks said leave your salvation outside of the bedroom. We'd better bring it in the bedroom lest we disrespect one another and worse yet - begin to think we can make our bedroom anywhere since we don't bring salvation into it to start with. I still believe in the gifts/fruit of the spirit being manifested through a beleiver but sometimes I have to shake my head and wonder how did these guys graduate from bible college to start with. The Lord is going to raise up people of the spirit who also have sound doctrine to back up the revelation and who will not mind letting the other prophets judge their revelation as I Corinthians instructs.

  16. Godbless You Brother Dan you made my point exactly, we are not supposed to leave our salvation anywhere at all


Dear Friend , God bless you as you leave your comment.
You are Special and I love you.
