Touch Not the Lord's Anointed!
Touch Not the Lord's Anointed


As I was researching this subject, I came across an excellent article on “Anointed” by Dr. Thomas Williamson, so here is the final part on Touch Not the Lord’s Anointed.

Touch Not the Lord’s Anointed” Is the Command for Today?   By: Thomas Williamson, Th.M, Ph.D. 3131 S. Archer Avenue Chicago, Ill., 60608

The New Untouchables would have us to believe that all these sins are permitted for them, but if any lower-caste Christians dare to criticize them for these offenses, or dare to withdraw their support from preachers who sin, and advise others to withdraw their support, then we are told that they have committed the unpardonable sin -they have “Touched the Lord’s Anointed!” What a convenient double standard for the New Untouchables -they can sin greatly, while those who would never have dreamed of sinning after such a manner are condemned and made to feel like miserable wretches.

(The lowest circle of Hell has been reserved by the New Untouchables for those who actually dare to name the names of preachers who have swerved aside from sound doctrine. We are told that there is “no redemption” for them. In that case, the Apostle Paul must be there, since he named names, warning against Hymenaeus and Alexander.)

We should not be taken in by the pretensions of the New Untouchables. We have already seen that all Christians are the Lord’s Anointed, that all Christians are priests, and that there is an equality among all Christians, whether they are ministers or laymen. It is time for us to return to the primitive and scriptural state of things, in which all Christians are equal, having only one master, even Christ. “But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.” (Matthew 23:8.) “Ye ere bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.” (1 Corinthians 7:23.)

Yes, the Command is For Today

The command, “Touch not the Lord’s Anointed” is for today. In 2 Corinthians 11:19-20, Paul warns against religious leaders who would take advantage of believers: “For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise. For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.”

Today, among some preachers, it is considered a mark of distinction that they are able to bring their followers into bondage, devour them, take of them, exalt themselves, and smite or abuse their followers. They brag about this sort of thing in their preacher’s meetings, and conduct pastor’s schools to teach others how to do it and get away with it. But notice what Paul calls such men – he calls them Fools! In the context, it is clear that he is not talking about laymen abusing preachers, although that is also wrong. Here he is talking about preachers who abuse and misuse laymen, and according to Paul, such preachers are fools.

To those who would smite God’s people in the face, the command of God is “Touch Not the Lord’s Anointed!”

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
