TGC’s GAY “CHRISTIAN” PRIEST OFFICIATES RAVI ZACHARIAS SERVICE

ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR APOLOGETICS THINKERS OF THE LAST 35 YEARS NOT ONLY EMPLOYED TGC SSA EDITOR BUT CELIBATE PRIEST SOGI PROMOTER / ANGLICAN WAS CHOSEN TO OFFICIATE HIS FUNERAL.

There was no more respected voice in PCA and TGC wing of the Reformed movement than Ravi Zacharias. Ravi passed away on May 19 after a short battle with cancer at the age of 74.

The sinking feeling this author and many more had over RZM promotion of Sam Allberry and his APA/ Yarhouse / Sexual Orientation Gender Identity (SOGI) narrative is only deepened by the news that Allberry officiated at Zacharias funeral service. (This report is in no way meant to speak discouragingly to the Zacharias family in their grief and loss. It is merely to follow through with the many devoted followers disturbed by RZM connections to the SOGI narrative negatively influencing the church in recent years.)

RZM had employed popular Same Sex Attracted or  SSA ( at times self identified “gay Christian” ) Anglican Priest Sam Allberry for several Years. Allberry is also an editor at The Gospel Coalition and one of two self professing “SSA Christians” on the RZM team.

Sam Allberry is a very controversial figure  in the “LGBTQ Christian” Thriving in the Church – Industry. He remains popular with Southern Baptist Albert Mohler and protege’ Russell Moore whose ERLC first brought Allberry to US audiences from the UK in 2014 . Recently Allberry took heat for promoting the controversial Revoice movement in early May 2018 but went into stealth mode removing tweets promoting “Revoice for our US followers” on his “Living Out” ministry  social media . BUT by July 5th 2020 Allberry and the edgy and controversial Revoice message of “LGBTQ Christianity” and  “Queer Christian ” and voices have merged.

Ravi Zacharias Buried in Casket Built by Prisoners

“Our hope is as certain as Jesus’s grave is empty,” said Sam Allberry in solemn graveside service.

Ravi Zacharias was laid to rest on Thursday, May 21, in a private ceremony in Georgia. It was a largely overcast day with glimpses of sunlight piercing through the clouds, a reflection of those who were mourning below with glimpses of hope piercing through the mournful occasion. His family gathered to honor not just the leader of a global ministry or an evangelist-apologist who crisscrossed the globe in the service of Christ, but a loving husband, a nurturing father, and a loyal and generous brother. Sam Allberry, who officiated the service, rightly reminded all that this is not the end of Ravi’s story. Hovering over the whole ceremony was the confidence of the words that had saved Ravi’s life 57 years ago: “Because I live, you will also live” (John 14:19).

Allberry gently ministered to the family through his message of hope and assurance in Christ during the graveside service. He explained that the Christian’s hope is grounded in the assurance of Christ’s life and faithfulness. Since Christ lives, we know that Ravi lives. In that sense, the grave is something of a painful deception. Ravi now rests cradled in our Lord’s earth not as one who has been snatched from life, but as a dear saint ultimately liberated to life everlasting in the presence of his Lord and Savior. Using an analogy fitting of a man who had spent his life spanning the globe, Allberry described the grave as an airport transit lounge visited before one reaches their final destination. We know it is not the final destination because it was not Christ’s final destination. “Our hope,” Allberry said, “is as certain as Jesus’s grave is empty.”

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS

Many changes have become evident in evangelical circles over the last 5 to 8 years. Many new voices are coming into the “conversations” being forced upon the church by the culture and by activism inside the church. Also some long time standard bearing voices have begun to sound an uncertain sound for the church in the arena of human sexuality and gender norms.This change in message and uncertainty could not come at a worst time for the church and the culture. Our prayers are with the Zacharias family and with the church in these sorrow filled days.
