“We have all of this going on – for the last couple of 20, 30 years. And while we’re building the biggest churches, never have Christians’ children been more taken over by homosexuality than they are right now,” Christmas told parishioners from the pulpit.
“If I asked each and every one of you to stand that has a son, daughter, niece, nephew, brother, or sister that is gay, half of you would stand up in this building.”
“Because it is a demonic spirit that’s come after our seed! And the church that God is rising up in this hour is going to have authority over that!” he shouted at his flock.
“We’re not gonna tell ’em they’re going to hell, we’re not gonna tell ’em they’re scum. We’re gonna tell ’em that they’re born of God, that God will set them free, and change them by the power of the holy ghost. We’re going to put them on our platform to sing that our God is an awesome God. By the power of the lord!”
Christmas considers himself a “prophet” and regularly predicts the end of the world and retribution from God that never happens.
