California Pastor Says ‘White Supremacy’ Killed Jesus

Leader of pro-gay church continues to deny biblical truths (this group also serves beer and donates to Planned Parenthood)

Progressives would like nothing more than to recreate things in their own subjective image and likeness — even when it comes to religion.

A pastor of a pro-gay church in Santa Cruz, California — which plans to donate proceeds from future beer sales to Planned Parenthood — is the latest example.

Christopher VanHall, the pastor of the Greater Purpose Church, is now making outrageous claims from the pulpit, including that Jesus was a feminist and also a “person of color” — further extending the narrative of oppression, a hallmark of left-leaning ideology, according to reporting from The Daily Wire.

“We are open and affirm LGBTQ. We are feminists and I believe Jesus was, too. We are environmentalists, which I believe that’s the original mandate of the children of God, to take care of the planet that we all know and enjoy,” said VanHall, per The Daily Wire.

“We are anti-war, which I believe Jesus was, too,” he continued.

“We are all for racial justice, which Jesus was a Palestinian, Jewish rabbi. He was a person of color that was killed by white supremacy, so we’re usually making every effort to be on the front lines for racial justice,” he also said. “So that’s what sets us apart from many American churches.”

To claim that Jesus was a “feminist,” as well as using the modern-day phraseology “person of color,” dilutes His holy mission and purpose, which was the salvation of mankind.

VanHall misses the mark on several counts and fails to realize that Christianity is not about satisfying every whim and pleasure. It is about denial, obedience and service. It requires prayer, fasting and repentance.

Above all, it is about theosis — becoming more God-like.

And let’s be honest: Planned Parenthood, in all its iterations, is an affront to all who believe that life begins at conception — despite endorsements from Oprah and Cecile Richards, the abortion behemoth’s former president and CEO.

VanHall and his church appear to focus more on identity politics rather than Christ’s love, mercy and truth — which is never subjective.
