Holy Misogyny! Dating Advice From Megachurch Minister: “Dress Modestly And Save Yourself … For Me!”

The Country’s Most Misogynist Minister Proves That Hypocrisy From The Pulpit Has No Bounds.
“At this time, we deeply regret the need to announce that First Baptist Church has dismissed our pastor, Dr. Jack Schaap, due to a sin that has caused him to forfeit his right to be our pastor. First Baptist Church is in full cooperation with our local authorities in their investigation of this matter. Our church grieves over the need to take this action and the impact it will have on our people.” – First Baptist Church of Hammond
The “sin” was extreme hypocrisy in the mode of Bishop Eddie Long and Creflo Dollar.
And the set up to that “sin” could not have been a more “perfect storm” of religious hypocrisy:

– The First Baptist Church of Hammond boasts a huge congregation as far back as 1978: 30,000, with the claim that it ran the “world’s largest Sunday School.” In 2006, it was listed as the 24th most influential chuech in the United States.

– Schaap receives country-wide notoriety when he declared some views that were definitely off-kilter with the rest of Baptist teaching: he declared the King James Bible not to be inspired and that:
“When a wife receives her husband’s body, she is saying, ‘I just want to remind you, Christ, that I am receiving You’.”[11] Additionally, “The person who deeply loves Christ understands that when He receives Christ as Saviour, it is a spiritual intercourse.A person receives the body of Christ. A Christian is the female gender in the spiritual realm, and God is the male gender of the spiritual realm. When a person receives Christ as Saviour, he is receiving Christ as a lover.”**

– Schaap pens another book on marriage, Marriage: The Divine Intimacy. (Hyles Publications, 2005)

Schaap responds with the video below.

– Schaap is fired from his position as senior pastor because of allegations that he had an adulterous affair with a minor. Schaap confesses to the affair. The police are investigating all criminal charge possibilities including transportation of a minor across state for immoral purposes.
