BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Just two years after striking down the state’s law criminalizing sodomy, the chief judge of the Alabama Court of the Judiciary (COJ), who also serves as an elder and Bible teacher at The Church at Brook Hills, joined his colleagues in their unanimous decision to suspend Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore on Friday.
“[I]t is the unanimous judgment of this Court that Chief Justice Moore should be suspended from from office without pay for the remainder of his term,” Judge J. Michael Joiner wrote for the panel of nine judges.
As previously reported, according to his biography, Joiner is an elder and Bible teacher at The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, formerly led by “Radical” author David Platt, who now serves as the president of the Southern Baptist International Mission Board.
“He is an active member of The Church at Brookhills where he teaches a Bible study class,” Joiner’s judicial bio reads. “He previously served as Deacon and Chairman of the Shelby Baptist Association Credentials Committee.”….. [read more]
lhwm notes: Beware of FALSENESS
2 Peter 1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. 2 Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; 3 and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
“On Friday, Joiner described Moore as one who has wasted taxpayer money by being placed on trial, and has a record of being defiant. He pointed back to Moore’s removal in 2003 when he refused to remove the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Supreme Court.”
Is Removing The 10 Commandments A Big Deal?
John 15:10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. 11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
Lord we pray you be with Mr. Moore and his family. We pray that another job will come his way for your word says “James 1:12 Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” and “Deuteronomy 11:1 [ Rewards of Obedience ] “You shall therefore love the Lord your God, and always keep His charge, His statutes, His ordinances, and His commandments.”
