(Jennifer Leclaire) Peter the apostle warned about false prophets among believers and false teachers who would “secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who brought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves” (2 Pet. 2:1). It appears we’re seeing this Scripture fulfilled, in part, right before our very eyes. Jim Rigby, pastor of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Austin, Texas, used his social media platform to mockingly share some bad news with his flock.
“Apparently, because I don’t believe in a literal resurrection, I’m not really a Christian. This unfortunately also means I won’t be going to heaven with many of you,” he writes sarcastically, going on to say that while his family is enjoying a heavenly banquet, “I will be screaming in unending torment along with Jews and Democrats and the evil college professors who teach evolution.” Rigby’s satirical post continues, bemoaning the embarrassment of being a Presbyterian minister bound for hell. He called himself a fool for trying to live as Jesus taught when, he quips, he should have been reciting the Apostles’ Creed like a cockatiel. CONTINUE
