‘You can’t evangelize and antagonize at the same time!’ – Pastor Dewey Smith

‘You can’t evangelize and antagonize at the same time!’ – Pastor Dewey Smith

Pinky went to church yesterday! Hallelujah! 😀

A good KDian sent me the YouTube video below that is the ministration of Pastor Dewey Smith. As I watched, I said to myself, ‘Why? Why don’t we have more Christians who can practice their religion this way?’

I picked out some of the words the wise man of God dispensed from the altar:

‘On one hand, you quote homosexuality as an abomination from Leviticus, but you say that right after you ate some shrimp, some catfish and some lobster…!

‘We pick and choose the scriptures that we wanna use to beat folk up with, rather than look at our own lives…!

‘These folks are an abomination, they’re nasty. Tell you what you do then. Go find every song that’s been written by a gay person for the last hundred years and don’t sing it in church. Let’s see how many songs you can minister on that Sunday.’

And then, he rounded up with:

‘We all need Jesus!!!’

HALLELUJAH! Preach, pastor! *vibrating Black-American-church-attender style* lol

Check the short video out below.

    Wow. “You can’t preach and antagonise at the time”

    Laughed out at “…go find every song written by a gay person in the last hundred years and don’t sing it in church let’s see how many songs you can minister on that sunday.” they have no idea.
    I don’t got to church but I would go to that church just to listen to that pastor.

    Chei, May God Bless that good KDian where ever he is for helping to put Christians in a positive light on KD.

    May he never lack. May his hustle always flow… Let his own be his own…for this is the day the Lord has made on KD.

    I will be praying for him…

      Not sure it was a shade,leastways not an intentional one.A lot of gospel artistes I know,here in naija are gays.Might hold true elsewhere too.

        Sir, I think it’s about the way he reasons … And the confidence to actually say it out … In church without the fear of stepping on toes or losing followers.

    I’d have loved to see the look on the faces of the congregation (didn’t watch d video) did d message really sink in? I’ve come to realise that most homophobes aren’t really homophobic because of their “moral/godly/religious” fibre; they just use religion as an excuse to hate something they would have still hated,even if they were atheists. Oh well…

    Such a wonderful way to revive your spirit in the place you originally should, but for some reason cannot, because some folks just want to preach hate. Sometimes we need videos like this to build hope.

    testify!!!! I love knowing there are people like these in this world.

    I don’t know about you guys but i KNOW a time will come when being gay and knowing Jesus will not be two different things, a time when Nigeria will have no choice but to accept that the gay community ain’t going nowhere & a time when being gay is considered nothing… like being straight…

    I will be alive when that time comes, I will still be a youth when that time comes…

    and if that doesn’t happen…

    my suitcase is already packed to move to the U.S

    Great to see PP is finally following our advise. Not all Christains, clerics, pastors et al are filled with hatred for Homosexuals. This above is another example of what we have been saying. Tho rare lot but they exist. Stop the bigotry and generalizing of Christianity as a whole. Khaleesi & Co (those that don’t deserved to be named)
