1John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
Christianity is in a mess. What is touted, claimed, promoted as ‘Christianity’ today is in a mess! Adultery, acceptance of sodomy and sodomites as an acceptable life, etc. etc. Those made popular on television such as ‘Jen Hatmaker, a popular Christian writer, blogger, and former reality TV star, has filed for divorce.
Hatmaker announced the split from her husband, Brandon, on social media Sunday (Sept 6). Court documents show the petition for divorce was filed in late August.
“I don’t know how to say this, and I still cannot believe I am even saying it, but Brandon and I are getting divorced,” Hatmaker wrote on her Facebook page. “Although the details are ours alone, this was completely unexpected, and I remain stunned as we speak. I am shocked, grief-stricken, and broken-hearted.”
Jen and Brandon Hatmaker starred in the reality television show, “My Big Family Home Renovation,” which featured the family and their five children. Along with their love for home improvement, the couple have been leaders at Austin New Church, where Brandon served for years as the church’s pastor.
In 2016, Jen Hatmaker became a controversial figure in evangelicalism when she affirmed same-sex marriage and said gay relationships can be holy. Lifeway Christian Resources pulled her Bible studies, she lost speaking engagements and her Christian publishing career was disrupted, though she has continued churning out books. She was also a vocal critic of Donald Trump and his evangelical supporters.
In announcing her divorce, Hatmaker gave few details. She asked for prayer and she asked for people to respect her privacy.’https://ministrywatch.com/jen-hatmaker-author-and-former-reality-tv-star-files-for-divorce/
Then there are those who were well known among the so-called evangelicals. This Sunday, September 13, 2020, ‘…former Christianity Today (CT) editor-in-chief, Mark Galli will be confirmed a Catholic.
He’ll stand before Bishop Richard Pates in the Cathedral of St. Raymond Nonnatus in Joliet, Illinois, to hear these words:
“Francis, be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
Pates will then dab Galli’s forehead with anointing oil (using a cotton ball instead of his thumb due to COVID-19). And with that, Galli — who has chosen his confirmation name after St. Francis of Assisi— will become a Roman Catholic.
Galli’s journey to Catholicism is notable, in part because of the nation’s political climate. A former Presbyterian pastor, Galli spent seven years as editor-in-chief of CT, the premier publication for evangelicals whose founder was the legendary evangelist Billy Graham.’https://julieroys.com/christianity-today-galli-catholic/
