Three things stood out from the interview with Pastor Chambers by Tony Smart; D. Min.
I. Her interpretation of the word “effeminate” in 1 Corinthians 6:9. (Gr. malakos) would not be translated by the KJV scholars as womanizers as she stated since the word “pornos” or fornicators is already used in the text. They understood the word to mean a man who was soft, thus womanlike in his behavior. It is listed between adulterers and abusers of themselves with mankind, both of which are sexual sins.
II. Dr. Mollenkott clearly stated that she does not believe she needs cleansing by the blood of Christ. The theology of the Old and New Testaments makes it clear that the blood is necessary to wash away sins. (Leviticus 17: Romans 5:9-10; Hebrews 9:22; 1 Peter 1:18-19)
III. Dr. Mollenkott stated that “we were all in the Roman Catholic church the first four centuries of church history.” This is false as they were many independent congregations that received apostolic teaching and were in no way under a centralized hierarchy of priests. She obviously believes that the Roman Catholic church is the original church which of course it is not. It is a perversion of true New Testament Christianity.
