No Kris, you don't. You see, if you truly were loyal to the King then you would do what He says. You would not preach falsely. You would not have taught that God takes scripture out of context, as you once did. You would not mock and belittle the poor as you constantly do. I know you will not conform Kris. The key verses assure me of that. Your condemnation is not idle. Your destruction is not asleep. God will not be mocked. I don't want you to think like the crowd Kris. I just want to get the crowd away from you.
"I do my best to love everyone, no matter their party, race, religion or sexual orientation etc, not just when its popular but it's a life long journey. But like Jesus, loving you has nothing to do with whether or not I agree with you. Those two things are completely separate issues for me. I don't know what it means to disagree, agreeably. I have strong disagreements with many of the culturally cool crowd. But I do know what it means to honorably disagree with people. Because I love people no matter their persuasions and I am a free thinker, I have a lot of friends with whom I have major disagreements with. But I can also learn from other people's journey because my honor for them is not based on their opinion." -- Kris Vallotton
Did Paul honor Peter when Peter was acting hypocritically? Did Elijah honor the prophets of Baal or did he accuse their false god of being too busy in the bathroom to answer their prayers? Was Jesus showing the Pharisees honor when He called them whitewashed tombs? It is not your job to honor everyone Kris. It is your job to call balls and strikes. To say what sayeth the Lord and what He has not said. You choose the opposite road. It is not love to allow someone driving off a cliff to hit the accelerator. After all, its their journey. That is cruelty, not love.
"I am a teacher and a spiritual guide to many. That's the call on my life, so I will teach what I believe to be the truth whether or not it's popular with the in-crowd or grows my ministry, increases my offerings or effects how many people follow me on social media. John the Baptist proved that you don't have to reflect the world's mindsets to be relevant to culture. I refuse to be a echo in a world that has made cloning their cause. Instead I want to be His voice to a world that has become morally bankrupt in my lifetime." -- Kris Vallotton
So being a spiritual guide is your calling? You don't care about the in crowd, growing your ministry or increasing your offerings? Please, your last book was called Poverty, Riches and Wealth! Who are you kidding? Does this quote sound familiar?
"But what if God never meant for us to be poor? What if wealth could actually be related to your relationship with Him, not from a place of begging or striving but rather from the inside out?" -- Kris Vallotton
Yeah, what if? What if you were not a dangerous heretic? You don't care about social media but have over 300,000 followers on Facebook? Kris, you do not have to worry about reflecting the world's mindset -- you are the world's mindset!
"How right does someone have to be before their worthy of honor? Are there exceptions in life? Honestly, for me there are. But prayerfully my exception box is shrinking as I get more of His heart for His creation." -- Kris Vallotton
