The endgame of the converged church

In case you're not certain precisely the nature of the force behind the push for women in the post-Christian pulpits:
A church in Malmo has a new altarpiece meant to celebrate inclusivity by replacing Adam and Eve in paradise with gay couples in suggestive poses, while depicting the serpent tempting them as a transgender woman.

The controversial work of art is not new. Photographer and artist Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin painted it in 2012 and tried to donate it to the Skara Cathedral just before the church was preparing to conduct the first same-sex wedding in its 1,000-year history.

The openly lesbian artist, who has a history of blending religious imagery with pro-minority activism, said at the time that she wanted to test if the Church of Sweden was as gay-friendly as it claimed to be when it embraced same-sex marriage in 2009. The Skara Cathedral politely declined the gift, saying it was about political activism and not faith.

But over seven years have passed, and now Wallin has got her way, even if it isn’t in her home city. St. Paul’s Church in Malmo accepted the painting called “Paradise” as its new altarpiece and unveiled it on Sunday, the first day of Advent. Helena Myrstener, the pastor, said that “history was written” in the hanging of the “LGBT altarpiece” as she tweeted a photo of the painting.
We don't have to understand why God tells us one thing is acceptable while another is not. But if we pay attention, we can often glean at least a modicum of understanding of the reason underlying His prohibitions.

This should also make it clear that tolerance, equality, diversity, and inclusivity are not virtues, but rather evils conceived to lure Man to destruction.

Hmm, I wonder if St. Paul himself had anything to say on the subject of women in the context of religion.

Here's my new letter of Paul to Malmossans:

Women ruin everything.

“NOT TO oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it; and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them.”

— Pope Saint Felix III, 483-492 A.D.

I may not believe in Papal infallibility, but if their pronouncements were all as insightful as this one by Felix I would certainly consider it...

Scandinavians are weird. They act like they've discovered something about women that no one ever knew about.

Swedish women are being gang raped by barbarians but this is what they are focused on.

They should give this Cathedral an honorary membership in Turning Point USA.

These are natural conservatives! Hold out for 7 years and then adopt whatever the radical left pushes on you.

When you're right, you're right, Pope or not. Want to be infallible? Follow God's directions.

Wasn't that the feature of the barbarian invasion which sold it to the women?

Even the "can't we all just be nice" idiots should be able to discern the evil intent here -- its never enough they add the perversion... they always have to *replace* the normal and good.

any wonder that the early church opposed Gnosticism? this latter stage Malmotosis is like a page out of a gnostic gospel or Dan Brown's beatific vision.

I've heard it said that rape-fantasies are very common among women.

Hanging, you say? That sounds like an excellent idea. Step right up, Pastor.

Blogger Al K. Annossow December 02, 2019 1:52 PM  

They destroyed art by removing all the details and composition. That took it to the point that only the self-congratulating could make any sense of it. So now they bring back composition and details so that regular folks can understand the messgage in the propaganda. It's the same result - no one gets to enjoy art.

Blogger The Contrarian December 02, 2019 1:53 PM  

Do they still make the sign of the cross in Malmo? They don't do it at the vatican any longer, https://twitter.com/CatholicSat/status/1200745898361397249/video/1

Blogger dc.sunsets December 02, 2019 1:57 PM  

The main sacrament of such a "church" is obviously "Do whatever promises to feel good." Paralleling today's pervasive "Self-Actualization," it's terrifying.

I can't imagine a more self- and socially-destructive ethos. But given that I can count at least five gambling outlets (not to mention the State Lottery/Numbers Racket app) within a mile of my home, with a whole new legal intoxicant (weed) soon available, this USA looks more like "It's a Wonderful Life's" Pottersville each day.

I never before imagined a religion that could elevate Self-Destruction (vice) to a Holy Sacrament. I don't know if God's Wrath will be literal or metaphorical, but the consequences of this folly accumulate and are very, very real.

Blogger Al K. Annossow December 02, 2019 1:59 PM  

Even with this 'new' interpretation of the bible, it is still way behind the times - where is the pedophilia? Where's the bestiality? Where's the prototype for Tower of Babel? Surely they believe that God has matured enough to support those.

How can that church consider itself modern and enlightened without the full modern message!

This kind of garbage is what makes the Culture Wars so critical.

Even the soy boy advances in the Far East is surprising. Black Pigeon Speaks talked about the Chinese blow back on this a couple of weeks ago. BTW, the Chinese offensive against the C_A/Tribe is creating a whole other info wars front against these Demons.

I'm sure all the new Swedes in Malmö will share in her admiration for the art piece as they burn the church to the ground.

Perverts in, 'suggestive poses' you say? Good thing the Lord will have no shortage of millstones to go around. Looks like he'll need a whole lot of them.

Just more evidence that the liberal "church" is gnostic.

Wonder if god would forgive a old fashioned church raid.

No one tests their men like Scandinavian women. No one fails their women's tests like Scandinavian men.

Blogger Johnny December 02, 2019 2:24 PM  

When I was young the church my mother made me attend seemed to be about nothing. The pastor gave these long, vague, pointless sermons, or so it seemed. And a lot of the parishioners seemed to be old people who just wanted to hang around in a room for a while and feel sort of vaguely holy.

The whole thing failed in time, not from convergence but from disinterest. Currently the building is rented out for wedding ceremonies.

What seems odd to me about this Swedish church is that anybody bothers to attend. If they knew only a little scripture they would know that celebrating sexual weirdos is hostile to the doctrines presented by Jesus. And that is what this is. It is not inclusiveness, it is celebrating the weirdos.

I do not think that there is even a thing like a transgender woman. So it can only be the devil trying to make us believe there is.

See, this is NOT really a Christian church.

Its just a building now with pretensions.

To think WE are the bad guys! Of course they can't just be homos, it has to be interracial. They do this to make a mockery of Christianity. They are not even believers.

Blogger basementhomebrewer December 03, 2019 12:21 PM

The artist is a lesbian. They won't say it very loudly in public, but lesbians hate Trannys. Mainly because a large number of Trannys want lesbians to have sex with them and are now using their own shame tactics against them. That is aside from the obvious, that man hating is kind of hard to do when a man can magically become a woman just by saying they are one.

I take your point, but sometimes, as the sailors sing, "there's nothing like a dame".
