Bro. Branham Won't Be in the Kingdom of the Lord??

John Collins3/12/2012 2:29:00 PMI will be the first to say I don't know the answer to this one. ... I know what the Bible says, and who am I to judge?

According to WMB, a bastard child won't make it into the kingdom of heaven for ten generations, and local pastors teach this harshly.

Quote:
God even said in Deuteronomy that a bastard child would not even be permitted into the generation, into the congregation of the Lord for ten generations. That's how bad adultery is: ten generations: ten times forty: four hundred years before a hybrid...

A woman that's married to a man, or a man married to a woman that'll cross the lines of holy wedlock, and bring in a illegitimate child, the generations will not come into the Kingdom of the Lord until ten generations. Deuteronomy 30--23:2.
All right, it won't come in--a illegitimate child, he or his generation, or his generation, or his generation; even though they're trying like Esau, weeping to find a place, it takes ten generations. Forty years is a generation. Can you see this damnable, corruptible world is ready for judgment? So evil, cross up--cross up what God has joined together.

He's referring to Deuteronomy 23:2, but again, he has "snipped" a portion of the scriptures and taken it completely out of context.

Quote:
He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD.
A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.
Deuteronomy 23:2

OK, so I have two questions here, and they have very strong consequences if WMB was right:

1) I have been wounded in the "stones" many times rough-housing as a child. Does that mean I can't go to heaven?

2) Nancy Branham, WMB's great-great grandmother bore Lewis Branham, WMB's great grandfather out of wedlock. Does this mean that WMB can't go to heaven either? (ref http://wmbranham.net/)

Or maybe we should not "snip" parts out of the old laws, and accept the fact that Jesus came so we would be under grace instead of law!

As I heard in a sermon once, "I'M RESTING ON THAT!!!!!' [that=grace]
