Michael Johnson thinks Israel stole land (…) Update – Johnson removes the thumbnail

Edit: As of August 17, Michael Johnson has removed the thumbnail. See his comment below for details.
(original title of this post was “Michael Johnson thinks Israel stole land from the Palestinians (And promotes pro-LGBT website”)

Michael Johnson and Temple Baptist Church have posted a sermon clip of one of Johnson’s sermons. Like one of his previous YouTube videos on Israel, he’s not nearly as radical in the message as the thumbnail clip added to the video.

The thumbnail that he uses is from a prominent Australian social-justice organization “The Greens,” and the thumbnail contains a link to the website of David Shoebridge, who has said:

I feel privileged that throughout all of my life—I am 41 years of age—the Mardi Gras has been a fantastic part of Sydney, with its extraordinary annual celebration of our city’s diversity, tolerance and acceptance of a wonderful part of our community: the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex [LGBTI] community.

Below, see the thumbnail image and the video as well.

My name is Joshua Lindsey. I live in Minnesota, and with my wife and baby daughter am a faithful member of my local independent Baptist Church. I have taught Sunday School classes and children’s classes, and also had the opportunity to preach at several churches. I teach Bible college classes on the Pentateuch, Atheism and Faith, Comparative Denominations, Bible Preservation (A defense of the underlying texts of the KJV), Bible Geography and Customs, Church Graphic Design, and some others. My father is an Independent Baptist Pastor in Wisconsin, and I grew up in a home full of love for the Lord. My parents raised me in the Bible, and are faithful to this day in witnessing and discipling. Although I was constantly immersed in biblical teaching and preaching, I did not personally believe in Jesus as described in John 3:16 until my freshman year in Bible college. In the many years since then, I have grown in grace and the Lord has given me opportunity to serve him in ministry. Among other ministries, I run my church’s print shop and participate in door-to-door evangelism. In doctrine, I affirm the truth that has been passed down from church to church since the time of Christ. I affirm the deity of Christ, his death, burial, and bodily resurrection, the personhood of the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, the virgin birth, the inerrancy and infallibility of the scriptures, the inspiration and preservation of the scriptures, the imminent return of Christ and his future literal millennial reign. I accept the canonicity of the 66 books of scripture, I believe that God commands all men to repent, that Christ draws all men to himself, that any person can believe and be saved. I believe salvation cannot be forfeited or taken away. I believe Christ’s command to go to all the world and preach the Gospel is still applicable to us today. I believe in a future literal judgment seat of Christ and a Great white throne judgment. I believe that no person will enter heaven except through Jesus Christ. I reject all false religions: Islam, Judaism, new Age, etc. I reject the teaching that God elects some men to damnation, giving them no chance to be saved. I reject the idea that God did not preserve his words and that recent manuscript discoveries provide us with a more accurate Bible that was not available to past generations of Christians. I reject the concept of a universal church. I reject the idea that Baptism plays a part in salvation. I believe many things additionally not listed here. My views align with the scripture and with the beliefs that faithful churches have held since the time of Christ, and have held under the title of “Baptist” for many centuries now.

    I removed the thumbnail. I use alot of google search photos for thumbnails, and I make a policy of not posting ones with a watermark or url. While I stand by what I taught, I was not intentionally promoting a lgbtq website. The thumbnail has been removed. Thanks for pointing this out.
