PAUL CROUCH, TBN
AND CHRISTIAN UNITY
S. R. Shearer
In recent years the intensity of the attacks on those who are standing
against the Christian "unity movement" has grown enormously.
These people aren't waiting for the appearance of a Messiah; indeed,
quite the opposite - they believe that the earth must first be taken
before the Messiah can appear or "come back." The seizure
of the earth is, therefore, imperative - by force if necessary! And
in order to carry out this "seizure," Christians must first
unite. This is the impetus behind the new Christian ecumenicism! Theology
doesn't matter! Politics are everything!
Take one example, Paul Crouch of the Trinity Broadcasting Network
(TBN). Crouch has said, "... that old rotten Sanhedrin crowd (i.e.,
those who oppose the "unity movement" for doctrinal reasons
- for instance, those who allege the incompatibility of Catholic and
evangelical theology), twice dead, plucked up by the roots ... they're
damned and on their way to hell and I don't think there's any redemption
for them ... the hypocrites, the heresy hunters that want to find a
little mote of illegal doctrine in some Christian's eyes ... when they've
got a whole forest in their own lives ... I say, to hell with you! Get
out of my life! Get out of the way! Quit blockin' God's bridges (of
ecumenicism)! I'm tired of this! ... This is in my spirit. Oh Hallelujah
"Have you ever seen the old movie, Patton? ... He's my hero,
he's my hero. Old nail-chewing, tobacco-chewin', cussin' Patton
- but he read the Bible every day. I have a feelin' we'll see
old General George in heaven ... There's a wonderful scene in
Patton ... they're tryin' to get the Third Army across the bridge
in France and there's an old, dumb jackass ... right there on
the bridge and it's blockin' the whole convoy of troops ...
General George roars up, pulls that ivory-handled revolver out
... and shoots the donkey ... "There's a spiritual application
here ... I want to say to all you scribes, Pharisees, heresy-hunters,
all of you that are going around pickin' little bits of doctrinal
error out of everybody's eyes and dividin' the Body of Christ
... get out of God's way, stop blockin' God's bridges (of unity),
or God's goin' to shoot you if I don't ... let Him sort out
all this doctrinal doodoo! ... I refuse to argue any longer
with any of you out there! Don't even call me if you want to
argue ... Get out of my life! I don't want to talk to you ...
I don't want to see your ugly face." Now stop just for
a moment and think about what Crouch has said here:
- Those who protest "Political Christianity," specifically,
the movement of Christians to work together to "bring
America back to Christ and the Church," are damned and
on their way to hell!
- There is no redemption for them.
- They should be shot for opposing "unity," and if God doesn't
do it, Crouch and his ilk will.
So strong has "Political Christianity" become in certain
Christian circles today - and most especially in the charismatic community,
both Catholic and Protestant - that it seeks to invalidate - usually
by subtle ridicule and spurious charges of being "unloving,"
"divisive," and "harsh" - all evidence which tends
to unveil its true political agenda. Christians which aim at "taking
back the country for Christ and the Church" are simply not interested
in evidence which challenges their agenda, and they do everything in
their power to "mask" this evidence from other evangelicals
who would otherwise be disposed to act if they really had an opportunity
to see the facts. And it cannot be expected that those who believe that
"the end justifies the means" will be very scrupulous as to
their measures - despite their smiling faces, limp wrists, and sweet
protestations to the contrary: hence their violent personal attacks
against those who oppose them.
