Well, I guess you have to get “married” in order to have the spectacular divorce right?

Rich Jr. is the nephew of Dave Wilkerson, the founder of Teen Challenge and author of “The Cross and the Switchblade.”

Must have jet lag. They got married in the US but the pre-wedding lunch was at dress designer Valentino's Château de Wideville / vogue.com/ from Andre Leon Talley's diary.

Wines flowed from the Fabergé decanters, two at my table: a red Brunello di Montalcino, 2006, and Gavi di Gavi, 2009. There was also a rosé Gosset Champagne (2012), and the white (2013).

The dessert was the most beautiful fraisière, a cake that said “Kanye and Kim” with arrows and hearts in a sugar-free cake, made with Xyla, as substitute for sugar. “It’s my dietetic cake,” said Valentino, made of green apples and strawberries. The pièce de résistance was the blown sugar bowl, something out of this world of marvel as subtly filled with peach and lychee sorbet.

The family wedding party had to take a tour through the parterre, leaving at 3:30 p.m. to prepare for an evening fete.

Through all this, baby North cried not once nor grimaced. With the curious focus, like her father, she gazed at the Meissen monkey candlesticks, every plate, including the rare chargers, white porcelain with swans, floating on crested china of Elizabeth II of Russia. (Those swans picked up the drama of the table floating with Meissen swans in every shape and size, even one with green vines dangling from its open beak. Valentino explained he was looking for a black Meissen swan, which is rare and hard to find.)

I love how "we" are all apparently on a first name basis with these people, neither of whom I would know from Adam's house cat, nor why I should know them. Celebrities, I can only assume.

Familiarity breeds contempt because it is, at least in half part, contempt already.

...they’re (Kanye West and Kim Whatshername) a role model to the church, “ said Andrew Dumas who also attends the church.

Mr. Dumas, I can't think of any thing in response to such a stupid remark, so I will assume that you are simply gushing with the juvenile emotional reactions typical of 10-12 year old airheads.

These two are not role models for anyone, period.

I question my own sanity for even clicking on a thread mentioning the names of a virulent racist and an ex-porn actress.

You simply could not be more wrong.

This pastor has spoken at my church several times. In fact, he is married to my pastor’s daughter.

He is a deeply devoted, scripturally sound man who cherishes the Word of God and preaches it without compromise.

The word is that Kim and Kanye are beginning to search for Jesus and that he is in the process of opening the Scriptures to them to facilitate their new Faith.

They may ultimately stay in the world and turn away from Christ, but for the time being, they are being spiritually fed by a man who loves the Lord without reservation.

“I want to say congratulations and they’re a role model to the church, “ said Andrew Dumas - the fact that this guy said this quote shows there is a serious lack of biblical teaching at that church.
I guess some pastors are more interested in their worldly friendships than teaching from the Bible.

Be that as it may, the web site of Trinity Church seems to lack a certain little thing that makes a church, any church, Christian. Where is Jesus?

The web site looks like that of a social club more than anything else.

If there is evil present, it’s easily seen in the hearts of those who would slander a pastor for leading a couple to Christ and for not having the right things on his web site. I don’t know him, and he may misguided, but throwing arrows from a distance when we really don’t know him is the work of the devil. His love and devotion to the Lord could easily put ours to shame.

We Believe ...

The Trinity Church STATEMENT OF FUNDAMENTAL TRUTHS accepts the veracity of the Bible as the inspired WORD OF GOD. Salvation is through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is also acknowledged as the HEALER of the body and the BAPTISER in the Holy Spirit, a present-day experience for all believers. Trinity Church members believe that the gifts of the HOLY SPIRIT are for the Church today and that those who are born of the Spirit should manifest the fruit of the Sprit. We also believe in the personal return of JESUS CHRIST to receive unto Himself the Church and to reign in power and glory.

THE TRINITY CHURCH STATEMENT OF FUNDAMENTAL TRUTHS:
THE BIBLE: We believe the BIBLE, as originally given, to be without error, the fully inspired and infallible WORD OF GOD and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
THE TRINITY: We believe that the Godhead exists co-equally and co-eternally in three persons...FATHER, SON and HOLY SPIRIT and that these three are one GOD, sovereign in creation,providence and redemption.
THE SAVIOR: We believe in the true and proper deity of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, in His virgin birth, in His real and complete humanity, in His sinless life, in His authoritative teaching, in His substitutionary and atoning sacrifice through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His heavenly intercession and His second advent to receive His church.
THE HOLY SPIRIT: We believe in the deity of the HOLY SPIRIT who proceeds from the FATHER and the SON and the necessity of His work in conviction of sin, repentance, regeneration and sanctification, and that the believer is also promised an enduement of power as the gift of Christ through the BAPTISM in the HOLY SPIRIT with signs following. Through this enduement the believer is empowered for fuller participation in the ministry of the Church, its worship, evangelism and service.
MANKIND: We believe in the universal sinfulness of all men since the fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
SALVATION: We believe in the necessity for salvation, of repentance towards God, and faith in the LORD JESUS CHRIST by which the sinner is pardoned and accepted as righteous in God’s sight. This justification is imputed by the grace of God because of the atoning work of Christ, is received by faith alone and is evidenced by the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT and a HOLY LIFE.
THE CHURCH: We believe in the spiritual unity and the priesthood of all believers in Christ and that these comprise the universal Church, the BODY OF CHRIST.
THE MINISTRY: We believe in the ministries that Christ has set in HIS CHURCH, namely, APOSTLES, PROPHETS, EVANGELISTS, PASTORS, and TEACHERS, and in the prsent operation of the manifold GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT according to the NEW TESTAMENT.
DIVINE HEALING: We believe in the laying on of hands and the anointing with oil for the sick in Jesus’ name for healing from sickness and disease.
TITHING: We believe in tithing the first tenth of our income back to the Lord.
THE ORDINANCES: We believe in the baptism of believers in water in obedience to the command of Christ and the commemoration of Christ’s death by the observance of the Lord’s Supper until He returns.
THE COMMISSION: We believe that the GOSPEL OF CHRIST embraces the needs of the whole man and that the church is therefore commissioned to preach the gospel to the world and to fulfil a ministry of healing and deliverance to the spiritual and physical needs of mankind.
THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH: We believe that Jesus Christ will return in the clouds to rapture His Bride, THE CHURCH, and that following this there will be a great “Marriage Supper of the Lamb” in Heaven for seven years, and that subsequent to this event great tribulation will occur on the earth.
THE COMING KING: We believe that following this seven year period of Tribulation, Christ will return physically and visibly to vanquish His foes and to rule and reign in power and glory.
THE FUTURE STATE: We believe in the resurrection of the dead and in the final judgment of the world, the eternal conscious bliss of the righteous and the eternal concious punishment of the wicked.

Saw a pic of Kim in her wedding dress. The bottom must have been made from 2 kingsize size bed sheets to cover that caboose.
I like a well rounded derrière but there’s too much of a good thing. In her case waaaay too much.

Really?

Insofar as I am able to be a "role model to the church," I try to do it through a godly life and faithful service.

Mr. Dumas apparently thinks that means a family connection to O.J. Simpson and a homemade sex tape on the one hand, and a sewer mouth that runs twice as fast as his brain on the other.

I’m sure if every word spoken by every member of my church were published, we could all find a sentence or two that could be used by someone who has never attended the church and knows nothing about it to assail the pastoral skills and anointing of my pastor, who is the most deeply devoted, uncompromising preacher of the Gospel I have ever known.

But see, you're turning my question (which you didn't answer) into an attack on your pastor, which it isn't. I think you're reacting too emotionally.

Again, don't you think it's overstating it to call those two role models? Aside from the fact that they had a child and then got married, why on earth are we even looking at celebrities as such?

Agaim, that's wildly over-emotional. Is the statement true or not? If it is, it can and should be judged to be accurate, or not so.

Please show me where I judged (or even mentioned)the church, or where I judged the pastor as an individual. I'll wait.

" yes, calling those two “role models” is absurd."

There, you just made your own judgment, and it's a correct one. That's all I was asking in the first place.

"role model to the church" how?

1) Having a kid out of wedlock? Nope.

2) Making a sex tape for $$$$ ? That's prostitution.

3) Kanye West has an album called "Yeezus" which is a mockery.

4) He has a song called "I am a God" and was quoted as saying,

“'I just told you who I thought I was: A god. I just told you. That'’s who I think I am. Would it have been better if I had a song that said "I am a gangster" or if I had a song that said "I am a pimp"? All those colours and patinas fit better on a person like me, right?”

Exodus 20:3 is the first of the 10 Commandments; "Thou shall have no other gods before Me" and this clown is considering himself a god.

How again are these two a good role model for the church?

Was the guy interviewed that said they are a good role model for the church PAID to say that? Just seems odd if the guy was truly Christian and actually believed what he said.
