D.E. Paulk Has Officially Lost His Mind

hat tip to my brother GCMWatch for the story…


Donnie Earl (D.E.) Paulk has finally teetered over the edge and has been given completely over to his reprobate mind…thanks to his Unc-Daddy Earl “The Abomination” Paulk’s curse over the Paulk family. Of course, the Word of God has already foretold of this kind of demise:

Exodus 34:6-7 (New American Standard Bible)

6 Then the LORD passed by in front of him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth;

 7 who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations.”

In case you’ve been under a rock for the past few years, take a moment to be brought up to speed on the Paulk Family Disaster (courtesy of IndependentConservative). I have also documented Donnie Earl’s slide into heresy since last spring – from his initial embrace of new-age teachings, to his embrace of Carlton “The Heretic” Pearson and the wicked “inclusion theology”, culminating with the impending sale of Earl’s (and Donnie Earl’s) house of shame.

Donnie Earl recently granted an interview to a gay newspaper here in Atlanta detailing his complete embrace of gay inclusion theology – and thus, his official departure from sound doctrine and his surrender to his reprobate mind (***PLEASE NOTE – I am linking to the original article so that D.E.’s words are read in context. The website is pro-gay and overtly sexual, but it is important to leave it unedited so that you can truly see how D.E. has completely embraced a wicked and unrepentant culture):

No answers: After scandal, pastor finds solace in preaching gay inclusion

As a series of scandals stripped away everything Rev. D.E. Paulk had — his church, his financial resources, even his father — he found the courage to speak his truth.

“I don’t know how to say this, the scandal didn’t make me inclusive, it took away my fear,” Paulk says. “Before that I was saying that I’ll preach about gay inclusion and just sort of mention it here or there. When you lose everything, you have nothing to lose. I looked at my wife one day and said all I have left is me, and what God is speaking to me.”

Clearly Donnie Earl is referring to either the god of this world (or Satan, specifically) because the God of Heaven would never evangelize to anyone about unrepentant inclusion and the acceptance of a gay lifestyle in concert with His Holiness. But wait, there’s more:

Soon after D.E. Paulk took over as senior pastor, he faced what he now collectively calls “the scandal.” A number of women came forward alleging Earl Paulk used his influence as bishop to coerce them into sexual relationships. As part of the legal proceedings, Earl Paulk was forced to undergo a paternity test to see if he had fathered several children in the church.

The paternity test revealed that Earl Paulk, the man D.E. Paulk grew up believing was his uncle, was actually his biological father. Yet it was as these scandals rocked the church that D.E Paulk found the strength to say what was in his heart.

…thus the wicked “seed” that perpetuates the heresy and godless allegiance that Donnie Earl finds himself in today. Unlike many of the lemmings who stay in abusive relationships with their pulpit pimps, Donnie Earl’s congregation fled when Donnie’s horns began to show:

“They stayed through the adultery allegations, the racketeering charges, there’s been all sorts of things they’ve accused us of, some true, some not true, but the majority of the people stayed,” he adds. “It wasn’t really until I started teaching gay inclusion and other religious thought [that people began to leave].”

Under fire from his congregation because of his teaching and marred by his family’s legacy, Paulk considered leaving and starting over somewhere else.

So I guess that even though Unc-daddy Earl’s money (and sex) pimping wasn’t enough to close the Cathedral of Ill repute, but gay inclusion (non)theology was enough to pry the remnant from their pews. So Donnie Earl took his new book to a gay bookstore for a signing party, and he seems right at home:

Paulk began to focus on his core principles and beliefs as he moved toward what he calls “radical inclusion” and away from Christianity. Paulk founded the organization Pro-Love in 2004, which has sponsored inclusion marches every year since. He also began work on his new book, “I Don’t Know … The Way of Knowing.”

The book outlines his beliefs, a multi-national mixture of Hindu, Buddhist, Daoism and other religious thought combined with quotes from an array of historical and cultural figures. Throughout the book, Paulk admits he doesn’t have the answers, and advocates the creation of groups of people all looking for the answers together.

“This is kind of playing my cards here; in several years we probably won’t be called a church anymore, we’ll just be called a community,” Paulk says of his congregation, which now has about 1,000 members and is called Cathedral at Chapel Hill. “I think we’ll just be a community of seekers.”

[…] Paulk is against the idea of defining God as a certain concept. He refers to God as “The Christ” who takes many forms, including Jesus. He told O’Bryan that he agreed with him and says he doesn’t believe in God and the devil, just God.

So Donnie Earl thinks that his “club” will soon be referred to as a community? Um…it already is…IT’S CALLED THE HOMOSEXUAL COMMUNITY. Like every other new-ager, Donnie Earl completely eschews the bible that he used to teach from and the Word of God that he (allegedly) used to believe in order to conform – make that ENDORSE – a wicked non-theological theory that “all good people will go to Heaven”, and that Jesus Christ is NOT the propitiation of our sin debt and our only access to God the Father.

And let me take a moment to further clarify, before the hate mail (and comments) start pouring in: homosexuality is a sin before God. Rather than retyping, allow me to post a portion of an article I wrote when Eddie Long slowly began softening up about homosexuality (I wonder where Eddie’s next book signing will be, by the way…):

“So, Eddie Doesn’t Understand Homosexuality?” 

[…] Let me be CRYSTAL CLEAR – God loves us even in our mess – and in turn, our love for Him and His truth means we must leave our mess behind. We are filthy rags, deserving eternal damnation apart from the redeeming Blood of Jesus Christ and the turning away from our flesh. This is an uncompromisable point. We can’t honestly serve a sinless Savior while holding onto the things that He hates!

I am not a “gay basher”, a homophobe, a “hater” or any other pejorative that will probably be hurled my way. I’m not perfect, nor will I try to reason the varying degrees of “sin”. I understand that many have been hurt through sexual molestation, and confused regarding same-sex attraction, etc. Homosexuality is a sin – and like every other unrepentant sin, it’s consequence is eternal separation from the Father. I stand on the Word of God, specifically:

Is there deliverance from homosexuality? ABSOLUTELY – 1 Corinthians 6:11 and 2 Corinthians 5:17 specifically speaks of deliverance over ANY SIN through salvation and faith in Jesus Christ.

Further, EVERY CHRISTIAN will struggle against sin – including sins of the flesh (Galatians 5:19-21). What separates us from the world, however, is that we always repent and turn back to God. You can’t be “gay” and call yourself a true Christian if you continue in homosexual sin – remember, 1 Corinthians 6:11 Paul said “you were (fill in the blank)”…meaning before sanctification through the Blood of Jesus.

That said, Donnie Earl Paulk has officially abandoned reason and has been handed over to the god of this world. Pray for his wife and children – that they align themselves with God through Jesus Christ and not the witches, warlocks, and homosexuals that Donnie Earl bows to.

Oh, and rejoice for those who fled this heresy – both long ago and recently. Yet more proof that God gives wisdom, and those that adhere to His wisdom are spared.

    I wounder of daddy Paulk has figured out that he is partly responsible for how his son turned out. Instead of his son seeing the Holiness of God in his pastor/father, he saw the wickedness of man, therefore his son never embraced Jesus as his Lord & Savior.

    A so-called Christian doesn’t just wake up one day & turn away from the Word of God, that they supposedly believe in. This has been brewing along time. He’s had doubts a long time. Just like Carlton Pearston.

    The Bible says there is no hope for those who have tasted the goodness of God, then reject it. But I wonder, did he ever really get a taste of God’s goodness, looking at the environment he grew up in?

    • 2 speaking truth March 9, 2009 at 7:45 pm

      I completely agree jegreen3 – Donnie Earl is a product of what he saw growing up. His (alleged) dad and his Unc-dad both ran roughshod all over women at their church, so Donnie had a front row seat to their wickedness.

      It was only a matter of time…

  2. 3 CiCi March 9, 2009 at 7:31 pm

    Well, I guess there’s one good thing about thing about the things that D.E. Paulk says in this interview — he no longer claims to be a Christian. I mean at least he’s not preaching/teaching a false doctrine under the guise of Christianity which could possibly lead believers astray and into accepting his many disturbing beliefs as orthodox Christian teaching.

    *You know me, ST……glass half-full, if you can’t say anything nice, etc…. 🙂 *

    • 4 speaking truth March 9, 2009 at 7:52 pm

      Thank God for your optimism CiCi 😆

      You are right – at least Donnie is a full blown heretic (like his mentor Carlton Pearson), so he certainly won’t be guilty of parading around as a Christian…

  3. 5 GaAzalea March 9, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    As one of those who fled the Cathedral long ago, I would agree with you on many points but not this one:

    “Like every other new-ager, Donnie Earl completely eschews the bible that he used to teach from and the Word of God that he (allegedly) used to believe in order to conform – make that ENDORSE – a wicked non-theological theory that “all good people will go to Heaven”, and that Jesus Christ is NOT the propitiation of our sin debt and our only access to God the Father.”

    Donnie Earl never was much of a bible preacher. He might break dance from the pulpit, or he might line up a bunch of the elders and deacons of the church and do a male interpretive swim team dance (if you think I’m joking, check it out, it’s on YouTube) but Donnie Earl was never much on personal holiness, much like his Funcle Earl.

    Donnie Earl is usually about 10 years behind the times and now he is “reaching out” to the gay community because the Paulks are truly desperate for money. That is the only reason for his sudden interest in the gay community. He sees them as a demographic of people who just might not have heard of the Paulks before and know to stay away from them. He just wants their cash.

    The Paulks are in the midst of losing the Cathedral they built in S. Dekalb and need another gig. This new turn of events shouldn’t surprise anyone. Donnie Earl and the rest of the Paulks have no moral compass and therefore nothing is too low for them to do for some quick cash.

      Thanks for the clarification GaAzalea. I tried to give Donnie the benefit of the doubt, but if you’re right then he was just a lightweight pretending to be knowledgable about the bible. I agree, Donnie (like many other “pastors” here in the ATL) are starting to see the gay people’s money is just as green as everyone elses – so they’ll be the next target for the pimps

  4. 7 gcmwatch March 9, 2009 at 7:49 pm

    GaAzeala, Im gonna have give you a big amen on that. DE imo has never been a preacher of the gospel. I cant remember hearing anything that even resembled a sound gospel message. He was ripe for the false prophet picking.

    You are wrong for “funcle earl” lol 🙂

    But I will also agree that money is at the root of his newfound interest in saving the poor gays. They are an untapped cash cow and he and his manipulative eye has seen it. Carlton Pearson his so called mentor did the same thing. Add Jay Bakker to that list to. ELong isnt close behind. The gospel of inclusion is a simply a vehicle to more fruitful (pi) revenue streams.

    Im not sure who’s to blame or if anyone is to blame except those who justify their own sins and become causalties of sin.

    But an interesting question ST, now that DE is no longer in the Christian camp (we hope), is this the end of reporting on him?

    • 8 speaking truth March 9, 2009 at 8:04 pm

      Sorry, gcmwatch – I’m still laughing at “Funcle Earl 😆 ”

      Now to your question…I don’t know. Carlton Pearson isn’t a Christian, yet I still shine the light of truth on his snake-like heresy from time to time as well. Whatever the Lord wills, that’s the path I’ll take.

  5. 9 GaryV March 10, 2009 at 9:53 pm

    Make that 3 still chuckling at “Funcle Earl”. I know, I should know better. I should be more pious. But that’s just flat funny.

  6. 10 GaAzalea March 11, 2009 at 12:35 am

    lol Glad yall are enjoying Funcle Earl. In the underground that exists of former Cathedral members, he has been called much worse, but Funcle sums it up well, yes?

  7. 11 dre March 31, 2009 at 11:05 am

    I know Donny from way back when…we grew up together, but I never really knew him on a personal level…I can only say that he is this way because he chooses to be this way, not because he is under some type of wicked delusion…people put too much stock into superstitions and all that jive…the man was cool with black people back in the day and all he needs is loving and support from his community of people that he grew up around…I don’t like the fact that there are existing problems that I knew about from the start in this church, that went without being called out, but the fact of the matter is that this church was a popular place back in the 80’s and it’s no longer this way…you gotta fill up the church with sinners anyway, why not allow homosexuals in here…the bible says we all sin and fall short of the glory of God…should they not be reminded of that fact…LOL

    • 12 speaking truth March 31, 2009 at 12:19 pm

      BTW – this post has NOTHING to do with evangelism to homosexuals. Of course we are called to present the Gospel message (of repentance of sin and salvation through Christ alone), but Donnie Earl has completely crawled over to the “you can go to heaven without Jesus” and “homosexuality is OK” camp – and that is a bastardization of the Gospel.

      Let’s not confuse the issue.

  8. 13 dre March 31, 2009 at 2:47 pm

    no it’s not, it’s the reality that many christians are living in and facing because God says those who are ignorant for a season he winks at it…point being if homosexuals can’t make it in, how can a sinner who is a heterosexual make it in, but by the grace of God, and again, if WE ALL SIN AND FALL SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD, BUT GOD THROUGH HIS INFINITE MERCY, DIED FOR THOSE WHO WERE WITHOUT HELP, AND MADE HIMSELF AN ADVOCATE ON OUR BEHALF, then why do people exclude a certain sinful segement of society…Why does God as us to love our enemies and forgive them of their transgressions…there might be a lesson in there for those who have an ear to hear…

    The Bible you profess to uphold and believe, it says that WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS CHRIST DIED IN OUR STEAD! NOT AFTER THE FACT BUT WHILE…SO YOU ANSWER THAT AND IF YOU START LOOKING AT THINGS LIKE THOSE THINGS DONNIE AND CARLTON ARE PREACHING IT STARTS TO MAKE SENSE, not that i agree with them, but you are looking at this stuff onesided, but that’s what we do when we believe something and run with it, but the same thing you are doing, they are doing it, only from an opposite angle…

    Apparently freedom of the press, coveres thosw who are ill-read and ill-studied. Many have choicen to just, drop out and run for the hills when truth is explained in such a way. Juast as the AP wrote a store on church attends, that was again “spine to sell a story and to wind up Poor little divorced Mona and Bobby Brewers money digging desires. Bobby Brewer isn’t honest in his life, business, or the lastest person he is sleeping with, who beating (ask mona). They continue to feed the fire, and when one chooses the less intellect….it’s usally the church and espeically the Baptist. Well, before my running off on reading the idiots who post here. Stop in the “New Cathedral of the Holy Spirit”….listen to the teachings. It might not be your tongue talking, bible thumping, daming everyone of ya drunk brothers to “hell”…but, it’s the teaching of The Christ! Dare you!

    • 15 speaking truth October 9, 2009 at 10:22 am

      Oh, Rev…where do I begin? Rather than deconstructing your comment (frankly, because it wasn’t logically constructed to begin with), I’ll just say this: DE Paulk preaches heresy and he admires others who do the same thing. I’m sorry to say that you are the one who sounds “ill-read” and “ill-studied”, which is appropriate if you embrace Paulk’s heresy.

      So, I’ll let you continue to bathe in ignorance.
