Strange Fire?

A couple of months ago I ran a post “What’s Wrong With This Picture”. The purpose of the post was to raise questions surrounding the long term affects of one sitting under the tutelage of a pastor such as Jeremiah Wright; pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ….

Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.”


….tells us that a friend can have an affect on an individual, surely the spirit of our pastor will.

Shortly after the public rants of pastor Wright, we see his pulpit replacement  Rev. Otis Moss III has a kindred spirit liken to Rev. Wright. Now the latest release from the YouTube bank, we see the message that Father Michael Pfleger preached at Trinity on May 25, 2008.

I would that you would consider the following:

  • the doctrine (absence of God’s Word)
  • the edification of the flesh
  • attitude of the messenger
  • spirit of the congregants


After having an opportunity to see the service for yourself, let’s consider a few things. It is not about the color of ones skin. It’s not about  the denominational association. It’s all about the spirit; for out of the abundance of the heart… the mouth speaketh! 

One would do well to consider the admonition to the church at Corinth from the apostle Paul. BEWARE….. of another gospel espousing another Jesus, and propagated by another spirit.

The thing that continues to amaze me is the spiritual stupor of so many churches in America.

Did you notice the spirit of the congregants? “they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears’.
