Watchmen Awake, The Enemy is Among Us

By Ray Gano
A public school kindergarten teacher and a Baptist daycare teacher in Boiling Springs, S.C. have been charged with multiple counts of “contributing to the delinquency of a minor” after authorities accused them of hosting summer sex parties for teens that included alcohol and drugs.
Sarah Jane Lindsay – a kindergarten teacher at Boiling Springs Elementary School – was charged with nine counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and one count of criminal sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 14.
Lindsay, 42, submitted her resignation to Spartanburg County School District 2 on Monday.
She is single and has two sons.
Meanwhile Audrey B. Grabarkiewicz – a preschool teacher at Lake Bowen Baptist Church in Boiling Springs – has been charged with ten counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Grabarkiewicz is also accused of having multiple sexual partners under the age of 18 – but she will not be charged with criminal sexual conduct because her alleged partners were all above the legal consent age of 16.
Grabarkiewicz, 44, was dismissed from her position at Lake Bowen Baptist on Monday.
Grabarkiewicz is single and has three daughters.
Authorities claim that the sex parties took place between July and August of this year at the teachers’ homes, with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s office beginning an investigation in July after receiving a complaint from a parent. (1)
pedophile-teachers.jpgWhat I find interesting is that one teacher was a pre-school teacher for a Christian school. In this story the "pastor" does not come down hard on the employee. He does not clearly call the action sin, no mention of perversion, nor statutory rape. In fact there is nothing showing him publicly rebuking or reproving this perverted pedophile at all.
The Rev. Mark Williams, pastor of Lake Bowen Baptist Church, said Grabarkiewicz was fired from the church on Monday. He said the church will send a letter to parents with children in the church day care in which Grabarkiewicz worked.
Williams reiterated that none of the crimes Grabarkiewicz is accused of committing occurred on the church campus.
“The personnel policy reminds all of our employees that they are ... expected to conduct themselves as church employees both during their work schedule and in their private life,” Williams said in a statement. “We expect that the teachers working with the children meet a higher moral standard because of their employment in a church-related program.” (2)
So he fired the pedophile. He also made sure that his neck was out of the ringer by clearing the "church campus" of any wrong doing.
These two women are predatory pedophiles and they need to be named that publicly.
Although scripture does not address pedophilia directly, pedophiles are people who fall under the characteristic of one "without natural affection." 
Romans 1:31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 
2 Timothy 3:1-5  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 
The phrase "without natural affection" is translated from one Greek word "astergeo." 
It was a characteristic of many pagans of the ancient world. Because these people lacked the love of God and humanity, it was common for parents to sacrificed their own children in bloody brutal rituals to Baal and felt nothing of it. 
Significantly, it is also prophesied to be a characteristic of the humanistic pagans of the end-times which we see clearly taking place today. 
The word "astergeo" means inhuman, unloving and unsociable or one who acts in ways that are against the social norm.
This would certainly describe a pedophile and the hearts of these women predators. 
But what is the story behind the story is the direct result of lukewarm, spineless pastors teaching a watered down scripture.
Had this pastor been teaching the hard Word of God, spiritual discernment would have been there and that pedophile would have been exposed a long time ago.
Scripture says..
Galatians  5:17 for the flesh lusteth against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
Ephesians 5:11  and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
If the pedophile was being exposed to serious hard scripture, it would have done one of two things.
1 - They would have sought out forgiveness and repented of their sinful ways.
2 - They would have left the church.
A hard core sinner cannot sit in church long without  the "light exposing the darkness." In other words sin loves its own company and biblical teaching rubs the hard sinner the wrong way making them uncomfortable. They don't want to be there and be exposed to the light.
This is how I know that the pastor is a lukewarm hireling. The pedophile was still in their midst and he had no idea. Like any hireling he was also quick to divert blame by clearing the "church campus."
A real man of God would accept the responsibility because he knows that he will give an answer to the Lord for the flock that he shepherds.
Scripture says…
Hebrews 13:17  Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
Nowhere in any reports is this pastor coming out harshly, exposing sin and clearly naming the perverted predatory pedophile that was in their midst.
This is the bleak picture of the world we live in today.
The wolves are among the sheep and the majority of the shepherds out there have allowed them access.
They wish to be "Relevant" to the wolves and to the world.
It is also their ignorance of God's Word that gives these hirelings away. 
Scripture says…
James 4:4   ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
1 John 2:15-17  love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
What is the solution?
2 Timothy 4:2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
Note there is no "warm fuzzies" nor any sugar coating.
God's Word says BE INSTANT, REPROVE, REBUKE. These are words of quick action. Not taking ones time, lolly-gagging around.
We are told here to call a spade a spade and then we exhort and encourage.
How can a sinner be saved if they have no idea that they are sinners? One has to be lost before they can be saved.
This is why we as watchmen and women on the wall need to "Preach The Word." 
Now there are still some good pastors out there and I know many and have many as PZ Insiders. But there are also a huge number that are just "hirelings" or just in it for the money and fame.
What amazes me most, is that there are more and more cases of women teachers preying upon our children than there are men.
This is a true sign of the last days.
Scripture says..
Romans 1:26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  
We are living in perilous times. Now is not the time to drop your guard. Now is the time to be sober and vigilant.
Scripture says…
1 Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Our enemy is out there and in fact he and his minions are now among us. Now more than ever we need to be watchful and sound the alarm.
That is our duty as the watchmen on the wall, we are the final defense. Those of us who are called need to take our job seriously.
If we do nothing, the blood of the innocent will be upon our hands.
I leave you with this final verse to help hammer home our responsibility as watchmen.
Ezekiel  33:6  But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.
Watchmen awake, the enemy is among us.
