The man pictured above is Bishop Jim Earl Swilley (yes, that’s his real name) of the Church in the Now here in Metro-Atlanta (Conyers, GA to be exact). Jim Earl is the cousin of Pastor Donnie Earl Paulk (a/k/a D. E. Paulk), the neph-son of the deceased Archbishop Earl Paulk, one of Atlanta’s original pulpit pimps – literally & figuratively (learn more about how “Archbishop” Earl was Donnie Earl’s Unc-Dad).
A few years ago, Donnie Earl completely embraced gay inclusion theology, and lost what was left of his dwindling congregation (forcing him to sell Unc-Dad Earl’s cavernous edifice). Cousin Jim Earl loaned his congregation and his church building to Cousin Donnie Earl last year while Donnie was in-between buildings. Sure, some of Jim Earl’s sheeple were a bit put-off by Donnie’s affinity for unrepentant homosexuality – and they left – but Jim Earl seemed strangely committed to letting Cousin Donnie preach this wickedly false gospel.
Thanks to my brother over at the blog Gay Christian Movement Watch, we now know why: Jim Earl is gay himself:
CONYERS, GA – Bishop Jim Swilley, the nephew of deceased sexual predator Earl Paulk, has made his big announcement. There’s so much lying, inconsistencies, propaganda, half truths, false teaching and the likes in the video he released, its stunning. One thing is sure: satan has planted ministers in the church and they are yoked with an irrevocable agenda to dismantle truth and preach another gospel in its place. The gospel of sensuality.
[...] It doesn’t take a prophetic anointing to know there are hordes of these false leaders like Swilley just waiting for the right time. They are on satan’s time release program. They are watching and looking to see whether we will fight back or whether we will wax passive and play their deceitful game with them. And literally, lives and souls are in the balance if we stay quiet.
[...] And have you noticed that every time one of these false teachers make their move and publicly vomit out their blasphemy, their supporters immediately began the “love them and don’t judge them” campaign?
Click the title link above to view the video of Jim Earl’s “coming out” – and the love fest that ensued. Then, open your bible and read Jude 1 in entirety. Specifically, pay attention to Jude 1:4-16, because that is exactly what we are seeing today.
Paul was explicitly clear when he wrote:
2 Thessalonians 2:3-7 (New American Standard Bible)
3Let no one in any way deceive you, for it [the return of the Lord] will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,
4who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.
5Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things?
6And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed.
7For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.
Well folks, the Day of the Lord is coming soon.
Pray for the Lord’s sheep and those yet to know the saving grace of salvation through Christ alone. And pray that the wolves and hirelings continue to show themselves as true enemies of the Gospel of Christ
