John Meacham, Author Of 'Divine Revelation', Believes Presbyterians Ordain Sin

Meacham believes that the Presbyterian Church, in allowing gay women to be ordained, has joined the United Church of Christ, the Episcopal Church, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in ordaining sin

In February of 2009, at the Presbytery of New Hope’s meeting to vote on the ordination of homosexuals, Katie Ricks of the Church of Reconciliation in Chapel Hill, NC came to the microphone and told the gathered Presbyterians of her ministerial role at her church, of her love for her female partner, and of her desire to be ordained. Katie followed a speaker who had quoted 1 Corinthians 6:9:11 saying, “Surely you know that the wicked will not possess God’s Kingdom. Do not fool yourselves; people who are immoral or worship idols or are adulterers or homosexual perverts or who steal or are greedy or are drunkards or slander others or are thieves – none of these will possess God’s Kingdom.”

Later, the Raleigh News & Observer, in an article titled “Lesbian wants to be ordained”, reported that Katie did not get her wish and that the Presbyterian Church (USA) had once again rejected the ordination of homosexuals. However, Katie and the other lesbians in the Presbyterian Church did not give up their quest to be ordained. And in an article titled “Presbyterians clear way for ordaining gays, lesbians,” USA Today reported on May 11, 2011 that lesbians had now become eligible for ordination. They reported that the deciding vote was cast by a Minnesota Presbytery and that, after the constitutional ratification of the amendment, practicing homosexuals can be ordained in the Presbyterian Church (USA). In this action, the Presbyterians joined the United Church of Christ, the Episcopal Church, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in ordaining sin.

"The church," stated Mr. Meacham, "cannot separate the acts of homosexuals from the acts of adulterers, thieves, drunkards, and those who worship money and proclaim that this homosexual act is no longer sin and can now be ordained as a representative act of Jesus Christ."

"Jesus Christ is now calling Christians everywhere to experience spiritual birth, to store up heavenly riches, to live a divine spiritual life, to join the Armies of Heaven, to fight for church reform, and to prepare the church for His Second Coming."

Mr. Meacham spent eight days at the Sea of Galilee in 2005. During this time he received a new revelation from Christ that involved messages that spoke of the state of the seven churches in this modern time. His previously released work, 'Is Your Church Heavenly?' details both his experience and the messages he received.

In addition to inspiring the reader to develop a closer relationship with Jesus, these books also offer churches an excellent resource for Daily Devotions, Small Group Discussion, or Bible Study Classes. 'Divine Revelation: A Call From Christ To Join The Armies Of Heaven' can be purchased by churches at a 50% discount. 'Is Your Church Heavenly?' appeals to individuals, church leaders, church members and groups who desire to take steps towards improving their churches through directly following the advice and guidance of Jesus. Jesus' evaluation of each of the churches is presented in such a manner as to make them easily understandable to any Christian reader. The book is hard hitting, sometimes harsh and completely honest in its assessment of the state of Christianity today. It provides practical suggestions for change.

In his new book, 'Divine Revelation: A Call From Christ To Join The Armies Of Heaven', John Meacham takes the reader with him on his journey and his close encounters with the spiritual. He shares his personal struggles and shows how he became a prophet for God. His experience will allow the reader to develop a closer relationship with Christ, begin to build a spiritual life and prepare for the Second Coming of Christ.

John Meacham has served Christ’s Church as a Christian author, lay pastor, supply preacher, elder, workshop leader, small-group coordinator, Bible-study instructor, and Sunday-school teacher. As a part of his church work, John developed a small-group program titled AIM (An Involved Membership) and prepared a group study guide for the book Is Your Church Heavenly? A Question from Christ for Every Christian (published in 2008)

John was born on October 22, 1951 in Hickory, NC. He grew up the son of faithful Presbyterian parents. However, despite loving instruction and example from his parents and the Presbyterian Church until his conversion at age 31, he thought the story of Jesus Christ was a lie. Two days after his birthday in 1982, he learned the truth of Christ.

John and his wife Sue live in Raleigh, NC, and have two married sons and three granddaughters.
