Cathy Lentz deleted this tweet before we could grab a screenshot, but thankfully it was preserved in the above screenshot.
Below is Chris Rosebrough’s response:
Here’s the Pharisee Card Explanation link.
Cathy Lentz’ views are not in line with sound Biblical teaching. If she rightly understood the proper distinction between Law and Gospel, Sin and Grace, Repentance and the Forgiveness of Sins then she would be scolding her son, Carl Lentz, for leading people away from Christ.
We’d like to add that it’s hypocritical of Cathy Lentz to call faithful Pastors “Pharisees.” Pharisees added man made laws to God’s Holy Laws.
“Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, ‘The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat, so do and observe whatever they tell you, but not the works they do. For they preach, but do not practice. They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to move them with their finger. They do all their deeds to be seen by others… But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. For you neither enter yourselves nor allow those who would enter to go in. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves.’” (Matthew 23:1-5, 13-15)
Take a look at Cathy’s Pharisaical Law below.
Cathy Lentz, what about the churches Chris Rosebrough and J.D. Hall pastor? The sheep placed lovingly in their care by the Lord Himself? You said yourself that they don’t lead anyone to Jesus so why would you attack them, if you think it’s “unconstitutional” to do so? What if a pastor is a proven pedophile, like Hillsong’s former patriarch Frank Houston was?
If this was Biblical, it could be proven using Scripture. Please provide chapter and verse?
If you need further proof that Cathy Lentz subscribes to a different Jesus, look at the tweet below where she endorses Oprah Winfrey. And anyone taking the time to scroll though her Twitter history will find she endorses Pastor Mark Batterson, author of the heretical book “The Circle Maker” and Anne Voskamp, author of another heretical book “One Thousand Gifts”. The list continues with endorsements of Beth Moore, Judah Smith and John Gray, pastor at Joel Osteen’s “church” at Lakewood. We only needed to scroll back four months to find those proven false teachers/false prophets listed often listed as speakers at Hillsong.
