    Pastor Marvin Winans Refuses to Bless Babies of Unwed Mothers

    *The Perfecting Church, home to famed gospel singer and Pastor Marvin Winans, is having a special dedication ceremony for the congregation’s youngest members on Sunday. Charity Grace, a Detroiter who recently started attending services at the church on East Nevada Street, wanted her only son, two-year-old Joshua Grace, to share in the blessings.

    “I want to instill values and morals in my son based upon the word of God,” she told Fox 2 Detroit.

    But when she called Perfecting Church on Tuesday to sign up Joshua for the ceremony, Charity said she was told by a woman elected in the church that Pastor Winans has a strict policy — he won’t bless the babies of unwed mothers in front of the congregation, Fox 2 Detroit reported.

    WoW! :wow:

    What I find most interesting however, is that Winans hasn't been asked for explanation, at least I couldn't find a response from him on this in my searches.

    Review of the Church's ... Our Beliefs ... doesn't show refusal to bless babies of unwed mothers, in writing:

    Section 15. Lifestyle of the Believer. (a) Family
    God's order of the family:
    i. Marriage – covenant or union between one naturally born man and one naturally born woman.
    (St. Matthew 19:4-6, Genesis 2:24; Hebrews 13:4)

    ii. Husband – responsible for the spiritual and financial development of the home; he is to love his wife as Christ loved the Church; rear children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord and provide for the household.
    (Ephesians 5:25, 28-29, Ephesians 6:4, I Timothy 5:8; I Peter 3:7-9)

    iii. Wife – responsible for the development of a peaceful and loving home; she reveres and is submitted to her husband; she rears children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
    (Proverbs 14:1, Proverbs 31:27-29, Ephesians 5:22-24, 33; I Peter 3:1-6)

    iv. Children – are to honor and obey their parents; conduct themselves in a manner, which reveres God.
    (Exodus 20:12, Ecclesiastes 12:1, Ephesians 6:1-3; I Timothy 4:12)

    (b) Christian Ethics. Believers must practice and exemplify lifestyles that is conducive to righteousness, honesty and integrity; having a good report, distinguishing a spiritual and moral deference.

    Love will do that !...and you're right, Satan is in the pulpit simply because that's where people are....and wherever people are, the Creator is as well....the question is, what side of that Creative principle are they going to manifest??

    Actually, he isn't the only minster that follows this.

    It could be argued that those that don't are basically, rev. Ike clones
