From Apostle Paul to RuPaul, from Christianity to cultural churchianity

As an example of that to which I am referring in my title, Vice President’s Mike Pence’s wife, Karen works for a Christian private school that, as the news tells us bans, bars, is anti LGBTQIAP+—apparently, the media cannot bring itself to affirm that the school affirms traditional values, roles, principles, etc.

The HuffPost has actually claimed that Christian Schools Like Karen Pence’s Are The Real Threat To Academic Freedom because—are you ready for this?—“Too many religious schools at all levels regulate the personal conduct of their employees and students”: apparently, if you are employed by the HuffPost you can go in to work and it is pure do what thou wilt anarchy!!!
Well, part of the issue if that neo-schooling (as opposed to education) puts academic achievements second, at best, and socio-political indoctrination first, and foremost.

CNN tells us that Christianity’s future looks more like Lady Gaga as she is “very open about her Christian faith” which apparently includes having lots of unmarried sex with lots of temporary sexual partners and, oh yeah, worshipping Satan, “and support for the LGBTQ community” about which I will note that “support” should read: celebration of, approval of, endorsement of, etc.

Due to Karen’s place of employment, which CNN refers to as “a ‘Christian’ private school,” Lady Gaga stated, “You [Mike Pence] are the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian…I am a Christian woman, and what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice, and everybody is welcome.”
Well yes, everybody is welcome to repent. So, apparently, a school that maintains traditional Christian values is only quote/unquote “Christian” and no, not even a “private school” is safe from the cultural dogma de jour.

Apparently, Gaga one of the very, very, very few true Christians who has ever existed since 99.9% of Christians who have ever lived (and 99.9% of Jews and Muslims and Baha’i’s, etc. but no one in the media dares to besmirch them) have held to traditional values.

Apostle Paul represents Christianity and RuPaul represents churchianity (a socio-political social club).

In 1 Corinthians 5, the Apostle Paul noted, “It is actually reported that there is immorality among you, and immorality of such a kind as does not exist even among the Gentiles, that someone has his father’s wife.”

Thus, that was an issue to address and the problem was not only one man and one woman’s sin but the reaction of the church, “You have become arrogant and have not mourned instead.”
Thus, the reaction, for which they were being rebuked, was to appear to boast in their tolerance rather than mourning for unrepentant sin. And while that could have been written today, today Apostle Paul being replaced with RuPaul, the follow up would have been what it was which is that they have “not mourned instead, so that the one who had done this deed would be removed from your midst.”
That is correct: not tolerated, not celebrated, not champions, not having theology changed so as to give the unrepentant sinner special status, etc.

But the ol’ Apostle Paul did not end there but goes on to states that he has “already judged him who has so committed this” and “decided to deliver such a one to Satan”!!!
In RuPaul’s day, Apostle Paul would not only be besmirched all over the media but would face demands that he step down from his position as an Apostle.
But why deliver such a one to Satan? He specifies, “for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.” Oh, so Apostle Paul was not saying, like some arrogant “Christians” do, “You’re goin’ta hell!!!!” (with a huge smile on their face).

Rather, Apostle Paul recognizes that when one refuses to repent, they are to be put out of the church so as to undergo a period of breaking down, the destruction of his flesh, for the specific purpose that he not end up in hell but that his “spirit may be saved.”

Moreover, Apostle Paul tells the church that in being arrogant about being all inclusive and allowing the violation of basic ethics, “Your boasting is not good” since “a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough.” What we see in RuPaul’s day is that all of churchianity has been infected from the outside in and the inside out. Once that fallen, corrupt, condemned, Pagan and Secular culture commanded that virtually all sexual sins were not only not sins but were virtues, churchianity blindly followed: to the point of establishing neo (pseudo) rites to turn phenomena such as (pseudo) transition from one gender into (pseudo) sacred rites—and rights.

Apostle Paul then tells them to “Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed. 8 Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”

Thus, the bottom line is “Remove the wicked man from among yourselves.”

But if he was to be removed him and deliver him to Satan, to have his flesh destroyed, and ultimately have his spirit saved in the day of the Lord Jesus: what happens between destruction and salvation?

Well, Apostle Paul notes this to the Galatians (6:1) “Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted.”
Thus, at some point, the Corinthian church was to being the man back into the fold once he has repented.

Yet, more to the point, in the second chapter of his second letter to the Corinthians, Apostle Paul writes:

…if any has caused sorrow, he has caused sorrow not to me, but in some degree—in order not to say too much—to all of you. Sufficient for such a one is this punishment which was inflicted by the majority, so that on the contrary you should rather forgive and comfort him, otherwise such a one might be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow.
Wherefore I urge you to reaffirm your love for him. For to this end also I wrote, so that I might put you to the test, whether you are obedient in all things. But one whom you forgive anything, I forgive also; for indeed what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, I did it for your sakes in the presence of Christ, so that no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes.

This appears to be the specific aftermath as “he” is referenced. He caused sorrow, endured “punishment” which was “inflicted” by a now obedient body of believers, and was now to be forgiven, be comforted, loved, so that by his restoration no advantage would be given to Satan as if the man had been given over to him for good—or rather, for bad.

A reading from the neo-churchianity would be something like that 1 Corruptions 5 states, “It is actually reported that there is immorality among you but the only true immorality is judging (forget that that is a judgment in and of itself) and we have no right to get involved in what happens in the privacy of someone’s bedroom (although, we should use tax money what results from such private rendezvous: abortions, STD treatment, plus adoption, deal with children damaged by divorce, etc.).

The problem in RuPaul’s churchianity is that such an unrepentant sinner is celebrated, is given no incentive whatsoever to repent, is not blessed with the destruction of the flesh and goes on to live destructive lifestyles so if, God forbid, they end up in hell, it was partly churchianity which ensured their place there.

Most Christians’ natural inclination is not to “swear to Lucifer” but Gaga’s are:
