Chick-fil-A president, Dan T. Cathy is not who you think he is.

        I was reading a blog posting today from ‘Stand for the Truth’, written by Mike LeMay, titled: “The War on Christianity-Are Our Leaders Prepared?”  And of course it was discussing the latest developments that have been occurring since Dan Cathy’s statement concerning “Gay Marriage”, and the huge emotional outrage that has been stirred up between the gay community and Christians through out the US.

       After I did some research on Dan T. Cathy and his so-called Christian background,  I began to think that Mike LeMay has it all wrong in this statement he made, a direct quote:

“However it is a huge mistake to think that this war is only about Chik-Fil-A. This is the opening battle of all out war on Christianity in this nation. Radical homosexuals and humanists will not stop if they successfully hurt Chik-Fil-A; they will not be content until homosexual marriage is a constitutionally protected right in this nation and until every child is indoctrinated with the lie that homosexuality is perfectly natural.”

“The battle over Chik-Fil-A is a springboard to all out attack on American churches.”

       I have to disagree with his projection that it is a “battle of all out war on Christianity” by the homosexuals and humanists.  The battle against true Christianity, is by those who are not true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, and His Gospel.   Dan T. Cathy is a new-age, Emergent Church supporter.  This is what I discovered in my search when I went to his business Chick-fil-A website.

      Dan T. Cathy lists these on his Executive Bios section:  I highlighted the two that struck me the most to investigate:

  • Member, Board of Trustees, Berry College
  • Member, Board of Trustees, Morehouse College
  • Member, Advisory Board, Eagle Ranch
  • Member, Advisory Board, Global Teen Challenge
  • Executive Member, National Advisory Board, Lead Like Jesus
  • Member, Board of Councilors, The Carter Center
  • Member, Board Trustee, Gordon College Foundation
  • Member, The New Hope Baptist Church (and trumpet player in the church band)
  • Sunday School Teacher, 12th Grade Boys – Youth teacher for 37 years
  • Member, Metro Atlanta Board of Directors, Chamber of Commerce
  • Member, Jenkins Clinic Board of Directors, Vice Chairman
  • Advisory Board, Heritage Preparatory School
  • Recipient of the Outstanding American Award from the National Wrestling Hall
    of Fame – 2003
  • Honorary Doctorate Degree from the State University of West Georgia, Anderson College and Carver Bible College
  • Honorary Doctorate of Humanities Degree from Anderson College – 2005
  • Honorary Doctorate from HBCA Entrepreneur Summit
  • Honorary Doctorate, Law Degree, Pepperdine University, 2011

       This is what I found out concerning the National Advisory Board, Lead Like Jesus, as found on the ‘Let us Reason’ Ministries web-site,www.letusreason.org/Popteac33.htm.  Here is a direct quote on who is on this Board.

“Many in Christianity have been introduced to Blanchard by the “Lead Like Jesus” conference[s], where Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, Dan Cathy, Marjorie Dorr, Tami Heim, Ken Melrose, and Laurie Beth Jones have been speakers (Lead Like Jesus Celebration on April 29, 2004) http://www.christianitytoday.com/conferences/events/2004/40429.html”

 “Among the “Lead Like Jesus” National Board Members, are Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, Bob Buford, John Maxwell and New Ager Mark Victor Hansen.”

 “Both Rick Warren and Bill Hybels did a conference with Ken Blanchard (Leadership Summit 2005); Rick Warren, Ken Blanchard and Bill Hybels spoke at ( Lead Like Jesus 2003, 2004).At the 2004 Lead like Jesus Conference, Ken Blanchard & Bill Hybels spoke: “What is Lead Like Jesus All About? and“Making Your Commitment to Lead Like Jesus (www.leadlikejesus.com).”

     You can plainly see that Dan Cathy mentions that he is an “Executive Member” on this board.  Have the red flags gone up yet?  And yet another red flag, is that he is a “Member, Board of Councilors, The Carter Center!  The Carter Center was founded by Jimmy Carter, who has received Millions from Arab Leaders, for the sole purpose of forcing Israel to not only split Jerusalem, but also to accept a Palestinian nation within Israel!  Jimmy Carter is not a Christian, and he is an enemy of the Jews.

Here is information concerning Truett Cathy, Dan’s father, found at Wikipedia:

“Cathy has received numerous honors, including membership in Omicron Delta Kappa (OΔK), the National Leadership Honor Society. He received OΔK’s highest award, the Laurel Crowned Circle Award in 2009. He also received the Norman Vincent and Ruth Stafford Peale Humanitarian Award, the Horatio Alger Award, the William E. Simon Prize for Philanthropic Leadership, and the Boy Scouts of America Silver Buffalo Award. Cathy was inducted into the Junior Achievement U.S. Business Hall of Fame in 2003.[16][17]”

“He is a member of Pi Kappa Alpha and Delta Sigma Pi Fraternities.[18]”

“In 2007, Forbes magazine ranked Cathy as the 380th richest man in America and the 799th richest man in the world, with an estimated net worth of $1.2 billion.[19][20]”

“President George W. Bush bestowed the President’s Call to Service Award on Cathy in 2008.[21]”

“Cathy was inducted into the Indiana Wesleyan University Society of World Changers on April 3, 2011. In addition to being inducted into the Society, the university also conferred upon Cathy an honorary doctorate of business.”

“In May 2012, Cathy received an honorary doctorate along with presidential candidate Mitt Romney at the Liberty University‘s spring commencement ceremony. In his remarks, Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee at the time, said, “The Romney campaign comes to a sudden stop when we spot a Chick-fil-A. Your chicken sandwiches were our comfort food through the primary season, and heaven knows there were days that we needed a lot of comfort.” Romney congratulated Cathy on his “well-deserved honor today”.[22]”

   2Co_6:14  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

2Co_6:17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
      
     
        Luk_6:26  Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

      Here is a little tidbit concerning the corruption within the Southern Baptist Convention:    2000: The SBC adopted a new Baptist Faith and Message statement. Baptist historian Dr. Walter Shurden says this 2000 version, used as a creedal statement by SBC agencies, elevates the Bible to a position above that of Jesus himself and downplays the doctrines of priesthood of each believer and local church autonomy.[25] Conservatives contend that the statement accurately reflects the beliefs of most Southern Baptists. (found on Wikipedia.org)  This means they have, as stated by Jimmy Carter: “Most disturbing has been the convention’s recent decision to remove Jesus Christ, through his words, deeds and personal inspiration, as the ultimate interpreter of the Holy Scriptures,” he explained in his press release. “This leaves open making the pastors or executives of the SBC the ultimate interpreters.”   In other-words, they have removed Jesus as God’s given authority over His people.  This is total depravity and Apostasy, and it explains why they deny Jesus’s Divinity and the Power of the Blood!

       For those that are truly after the Truth, and desire only to follow the Lord Jesus Christ, and His Gospel, I leave you to do your own research.  The Apostasy is so rampant, the web of deceit is so intertwined, that it is truly sobering and could take up so much of one’s time and get side tracked from what is truly important, to grow in the Fullness of the Godhead.  To grow more in the Lord Jesus Christ and what He represents, and stands for.  

      I have contended for the faith, called out what is major error, naming names, and will take nothing back, for I stand upon the Lord’s word, and His discernment.  I now shall be like Abraham, and just dwell with the Lord and learn more of Him, being separated from all the “religious wars”, and allow the evil to continue on.  For the Lord will judge all wickedness, he will bring judgement to all that know Him not, (false brethren), the Lord will judge the unbelievers (sinners), that is NOT our duty as true believers in Jesus Christ. I’ll let the blogs of: ‘Defending/Contending’, ‘Stand Up for the Truth’, ‘DiscernIt’ go on thinking that they are standing for truth, for in part they do, and that is good, but  they still refuse to call evil, evil in regards to the Southern Baptist Convention, John MacArthur, and all associated with this new Modern Evangelicalism.  The Lord will lead all His true remnant out from the false organizations, teachers, spiritual leaders, and they will separate themselves, like Abraham and find their “Promised Rest”.

      Now in regards to Matt Moore, he is a new believer, and unlearned in the things of the Lord.  And the Lord will lead him out of the error he is in,  like me, the Lord is faithful to His Sheep, and we will hear his voice, and we will “come out from among them”.  Whatever fruit, and works is not of the Lord, but through the flesh shall be burned up, and we will suffer loss (rewards).  But those things which are eternal, and authored by the Lord and His perfect will, shall be honored and rewarded. 

Mat_13:23  But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

    It’s amazing what can be found in some people’s history. You just never know. I have been researching Calvin and he too had such deep Roman Catholic ties, plus his soul was so tied to Augustinian doctrine that it’s hard to know where one began and the other took over, plus all the embellishment of Calvinistic doctrine over the centuries. (And for all his ‘learning’ and so-called
    understanding of what God said and what He wants, Calvin was a cruel man, a spiritual tyrant, even when the Jews did not receive his doctrine he lashed out at them (even as Luther did). I think Mr. Calvin sorely lacked what Paul said was greater and that is ‘love’. After all, Mr. Calvin was only human. He did not have, nor does anyone human have the definitive Word on “Thus saith the Lord”. God does, and that is why we have His Word: The Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. It declares that God is Love.
    I am so grateful that God is love, because in my 67 year history I have been unable to duplicate it and I have never met anyone who has, though a couple have come very close, and that is under-standable, for God alone is perfect and perfectly holy.
    I absolutely reject Calvinism and without a doubt the same for Roman Catholicism. They are
    institutions of human philosophy and understanding. We have a ‘more sure word’. The Bible.
    Sola Scriptura. Digging deeper into the interpretation of the 5 points (TULIP) of Calvinism causes
    my spirit to swoon from fear, sorrow, and how wicked the human heart is. I have
    determined to look into God’s word for myself and not the understanding(s) of mere men.
    How different is it when a Jehovah Witnesses follow the teaching of Russell Taze, or the
    Mormon’s their Joseph Smith, or, or, or . . . The church has long left the the true place of
    understanding, the Word of God, and has cast its lot with men who have a ‘revelation’,
    or women who too have a ‘vision’, and it is no different today with the multiplicity of denominational creeds. How utterly sad it is. It makes the ‘truth’ look fractured, when indeed
    it is not. I love to return to the ‘simplicity’ of the Gospel. It is sooo refreshing and deep, and
    yet simple enough for a simple person to grasp that “God so loved the world that He gave His
    only Begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life”.
    Do we really need a seminary to explain that! It’s plain enough. The cardinal doctrines are
    plain and easy to understand. Christ came, Christ died and Christ rose again. I am a sinner,
    God is holy and I need to be forgiven and cleansed from my sins (Born Again) and be
    wonderfully reconciled to my Heavenly Father. (Jesus paid all the debt that was owed by
    me.) And I distinctly recall agreeing with God regarding my utter need of a Saviour, and of
    grace and tender mercy. I said yes to love, to an Almighty God who I learned later also spoke
    with Adam, Abraham and Jacob and David and Isaiah and Jeremiah and and and.
    Our church system, for the most past, is built on disagreements and private interpretations. I have long ago left off following what anyone says unless I see it plainly in Scripture. So, whether a person believes pre-trib, or mid-trib, or post-trib is of little importance to me, what I want to know is ‘how are we doing with Jesus TODAY!?” As Oswald would encourage: “Be rightly related to God.” God laid it all out in Scripture. “If any man sin . . . ” “If we confess our sins . . . ”
    God chose Paul, for the most part, to lay a foundation upon which we can stand and stand
    true, having “on the breastplate . . . ” So, having done all, let’s stand. Amen.

    Thanks Lollie, for your input. I personally have never looked into Calvin and his history, I have heard, or read some things about him, but I never looked into it. I’ve read TULIP never looked into it. But because I have learned from the Lord through reading His Word, and His Spirit giving me understanding, I do stand against any type of “Free Will” teaching which says man has the will to except God, for the Bible tells me so. Due to that so many condemn me as a “Calvinist”, which is absolutely untrue, but due to their prideful rage against such teaching they must place a label.
    Really their argument is with the Lord’s Word.

    And I’m in agreement, I don’t read any books from men any longer, I just lean upon my Jesus and His Holy Spirit, to grant me understanding in my reading/study/quiet time of His Word. If I don’t receive anything special, well I just wait, read, and wait some more, and pray.

    The simplicity that is in Jesus, once a person gets through all the garbage that is out there, is so wonderfully simple, and true, and just and is LIGHT! His light, His Word. In Him Eternity exists, and it is only in Him, through Him, and by Him that we are granted the precious gift in getting to know Him, and Him alone, and that is the way we shall grow INTO HIS Fullness and all that pertains to.

    I just wanted to add here, that the Lord has used some writers, mainly Dave Hunt to renew the truth that was lost due to ‘doctrine of demons’. But that was a God given gift for my good. I since don’t need to read Mr. Hunts books, for it assisted me to focus upon Jesus, and He is the BEST teacher to His Sheep. If ALL should fall away, I by His grace will still follow and obey Him. And that is the place each and every true believer in Jesus needs to get too……lean more on Him and less on man.

    Have a blessed day…….
    In His Eternal Love…….

      Dear f johnson, I never mentioned anything in this article concerning Dan Cathy’s life before following the Lord, so I do not understand why you would even bring it up. All the information in this article is dealing with his life now, while supposedly in the Lord, and Mr. Cathy’s refusal to obey the Lord and His commandments in regards to “separating” ourselves from workers of iniquity as pointed out in the article. Thus the warning on Mr. Cathy’s walk of error.

      Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment I appreciate it, but I am sorry it took so long to ‘approve’ your comment and respond, I’ve been very busy with work, and minor health issues.

      The Lord bless you and guide you into all His Truth, and give you the grace to obey His Will.

      In His Eternal Love…..

    He professed he does not like “Blacks” either….and rightly so he is of the devil.May God’s judgement not tarry on the workers of iniquity who not only do evil but pleasure and glory in it. Remorse is a requirement to forgiveness.Maranatha!

      Dear PK,

      Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.
      May I suggest that you show some documentation regarding Dan Cathy’s not liking “Blacks”. Did you read that in print, or did you hear that coming from him yourself?

      You see when documented then people can “see” for themselves what he has professed. I did search this out and found some online press did report this, but then I found another source which says this was a media gimmick.

      So who really knows what Mr. Cathy said? I do not want to accuse anyone without first hand knowledge, and I don’t approve of “hearsay”, we must present all things honest and true, as the Lord stipulates.

      I will keep my eyes open and research this out further, until then this is still questionable “if” this be actual fact.

      Thank You and the Lord bless you.

    So as far as I can see, everyone that has posted on here has been so focused on the splinter in someone else’s eye they cant see the true problem with todays religions. Guess that would include me to point this out to you. As the only judge of any man in this world is supposed to be God. Why then would you even make any type of post towards anyone about their life style or beliefs. It is not for us to judge and for sure not for us to publicly post about anyone one else. I know, you are not judging, just merely pointing out his down fall. Good job “Bible quoter”. I am not the most Godly man and haven’t been in a while but I believe in God and read the Bible and I know that this post that you have publicly made is not Godly either, pull the log from thyn own eye. Does the Lord tell you to publicly degrade and denounce people as if you are the “Hand of God?” I don’t mean to be like you to merely state what I see but the truth is what it is. Keep in mind I don’t debate what you say about following Jesus, I am debating how you have chosen to spread his word and in the degrading manner you have done it. It is in fact your God given choice so do what you will. If you post this ill be surprised if you don’t well, that’s what I would expect. But since I said that who knows what you will do to protect yourself from my claim. Be real! Godly men don’t go around trying to hurt or damage anyone and their own.
