Linda's "Ministry" struck down by Divine Justice

"while at 3ABN I wrote songs which became CD’s.” Some remember “The Story of Jesus Birth,” “I Think About Grace” and also “Makin’ Memories,” as well as others."  "As the number one selling singer-songwriter of the Network, she raised hundreds of thousands of dollars".  (Linda Shelton, http://lindashelton.org/bio.html)

"But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also" (Matthew 13:25, Holy Bible):  "On October 27, 2005, Linda Shelton received a letter from Pastor John Lomacang informing her that a Thompsonville Church business meeting would consider the question of whether she should be disciplined by being placed under church censure for 

THE COMING OF OPEN SIN

abandoning her marriage and ministry."  (Linda Shelton, http://www.save-3abn.com/3abn-and-linda-shelton-separation-contract-trial.htm)

DIVINE PENALTIES

"Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery."  (Hebrews 13:4 NLT, Holy Bible)

OH, THERE WAS SOME BIG TALK

After leaving Danny and 3ABN,  Linda set up her own shop:  "Linda Shelton is eagerly launching into the next chapter of her life’s mission for Christ! This includes COMING SOON…a new book, a new CD and a new series of devotional television programs."  (Linda Shelton, http://lindashelton.org/bio.html) "Whispers in a dream"!! (Hayley Westenra, Gabriel's Oboe (Whispers In A Dream))

And God prospered her?

"Don't be misled--you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant."  (Galatians 6:7 NLT, Holy Bible)

The "harvest"?   No new book.  No new CD.  And no new TV series.   

BUT IT WAS HER OWN CHOICE

"He who chooses a course of disobedience to God’s law is deciding his future destiny; he is sowing to the flesh, earning the wages of sin, even eternal destruction". (Ellen White, Fundamentals of Christian Education, p 376)

After all,

"16 These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: 
17 A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,". (Proverbs 19, Holy Bible)

The "proud look" at left wasted no time in devising wicked plans. Linda's two attack sites, "lindashelton.org" and "save3abn", were designed, in her words, to:  "Lessen donor confidence in 3ABN, and thus threaten 3ABN's financial support and its very existence."  (Linda Shelton, http://www.save-3abn.com/

Needless to say, her feet were swift in running to do this evil work. 

VICIOUS ATTACK ON LEADING ADVENTIST MINISTERS

Which leads us to consider egregious examples of abominations 6 and 7:
"A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren." (Proverbs 6:19, Holy Bible)

Of all Linda's abominations, this one is the worst.

If you want to be the main face on the leading Adventist TV channel you have to work well with top evangelists like Pastor Doug and Dwight Nelson.

Linda couldn't do this:

"It is behavior such as noted above that is the greatest threat to the institution of marriage today ... not gay marriage as Pastor Bachelor (Amazing Facts) and Pastor Nelson (Andrews University) like to believe. Adultery — committed by married heterosexuals — is the cause of the moral decline in the United States. Not some silly queers — who make up less than 5 percent of the population of the country — obtaining equal rights under the laws of this country.

LINDA SHELTON IS A CAVEMAN HATER

Stop spreading your lies Pastor Bachelor and Pastor Nelson and 3ABN by broadcasting It Is Written programs focused on the horror of gay marriage." (Linda Shelton, Open Letter of 25 Jun 2007)

You can't be the main face at 3ABN and viciously attack top Adventist evangelists.

And, of course, you can't have a face on your TV network who practices 6 of the 7 Proverbs 6 abominations.  Or, for what matter, who engages in vicious gay bashing:

Let's imagine she's interviewing Clifford Goldstein on 3ABN Live, and the term "silly queers" (per Linda Shelton, Open Letter of 25 Jun 2007) pops out of her mouth.

How would that go over?

Face it, "“Church membership runs the gamut between actively gay people and those who deny that reality,” said Willie Oliver, co-director of the Adventist world church’s Family Ministries department. “We’ve encountered [these realities] everywhere for years."" (Preserve Identity of Church, But Minister to Gay and Lesbian Community, Panelists at Adventist Sexuality Summit say, Adventist Review, 18 Mar 2014)
