Acts 20:28-30
Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them.

Main Issues

God in the Bible says "But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good;" - 1 Thessalonians 5:21
With this scripture in mind, as a Christian whose sole allegiance is to Jesus Christ, based on scripture, the truth in love is that First Baptist Church of Orlando is not a biblically sound church, it spreads hell damning heresy, and twists scripture to support the homosexual agenda.

Very sad to see that David Uth and First Baptist Orlando hold to the Southern Baptist Convention beliefs on their website and via their "membership" but in reality compromise and dilute the message of the gospel which is of first importance and an essential belief (1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Galatians 1:6-9) with his sermons and alliances with false teachers in violation of scripture like Titus 3:10 and Romans 16:16-18.


First Baptist Church of Orlando is a great example of a church having a solid statement of beliefs on paper but when you attend the church and see whom they support and call "Christian" -it goes against the essential beliefs of a Christian. This is why we need to be diligently critical in seeking a biblically sound church by testing it against scripture based off the website, actual sermons being preached as well as affiliations - Acts 17:11, 1 John 4:1. Their website says one thing but they preach and promote a false gospel that condemns people to hell apart from God.

David Uth and First Baptist of Orlando do not value the purity of the gospel message and do not care about contending for the faith in light of Jude 1:3. This is seen by David Uth endorsing and inviting to speak at his church - Ben Carson. Ben Carson is a seventh day Adventist. Seventh Day Adventism is not Christian and will lead you to hell apart from God for eternity. They deny the essential belief that Jesus is God by teaching that Archangel Michael and Jesus are the same. This is an attack on the deity of Christ - John 1:1 For more on the cult Seventh Day Adventism read here  http://carm.org/seventh-day-adventism
Romans 16:16-18 is very clear yet to David Uth- the gospel and people's eternity take a back seat for politics. An overseer is supposed to watch over his flock not invite people who spread false doctrine that lead people to hell apart from God - Acts 20:28-30.

In wake of the shooting at PULSE night club, First Baptist Church of Orlando held a "unity prayer vigil". The gospel and word of God was twisted and compromised to affirm the sin and homosexuals practicing homosexuality with no mention of repentance and faith in Christ for salvation. David Uth and all the other false teachers and pro-LGBT speakers said peace when there was no peace.(Jeremiah 6:14).

J.D Hall of polemics report said in response to the vigil  "
Please note: You will find absolutely no Gospel. You will find no Biblical truth. You will find no talk of repentance, sin, confession, or forgiveness. Again, you will find absolutely no semblance of Gospel. It is entirely absent from the event.

Here’s what you will find.
You will find a long string of pastors and impastors (read that: female ‘pastors’), who are systematically and one-by-one preaching the slain LGBTQXYZ individuals straight into Heaven, with no questions asked. What you will see is, in fact, a full-out assault on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. FBC Orlando, and the ministers gathered, are espousing the doctrine of justification by death.
As the LGBT crowd gathers with FBC Orlando, David Uth says, “We’ve gathered together as God’s people and as a community of faith.”

Uth then quotes 1 Thessalonians 4:13, “We grieve, but not as those without hope” and applies it to the slain LGBTQXY community. Of course, 1 Thessalonians 4 is speaking of grieving for those who are “dead in Christ” (verse 16), and not those who die in their trespasses and sins. Because of 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, we can be confident that those slain who were unrepentant in the sin of homosexuality most certainly did not die in Christ, and if we grieve for them, we can have no hope for their eternal salvation.

Uth says that what FBC Orlando was doing, in gathering the LGBT to unify in worship with them, is imitating the Scriptures. He says, “Throughout the scriptures, they were called to come together for mutual support and comfort and affirmation.” Somehow, the Scriptural references of gathering with the unrepentant sexually immoral for worship and affirmation escape me.

Dr. Larry Hillis quotes 1st Peter 2:9, applying Peters words to the church, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light” and applies it to the LGBT community of Orlando. Hillis explains, “We are a peculiar people because we know how to not let theological agreements get in the way of love.”

Most atrociously, Hillis then eludes to Ephesians 2:20, which refers to Christ as the chief cornerstone, and he asserted that in Orlando, the LGBT Community is the “Head Cornerstone.”
Another speaker, quoting the high priestly prayer of John 17 which was explicitly not prayed for the world, but for those given to Christ out of the world (verse 9), applying Jesus’ prayer to the LGBT “community.”

Sodomites who were present at the club during the shooting were asked to stand, and they were rewarded by the church with a standing ovation.
Then, the National Director for the LGBTQ Campaign Taskforce, Victoria Kirby York – got up to talk about how hard it is for the LGBTQXYZ community. What they didn’t tell the crowd is that York’s job is to lobby against the Religious Freedom Restoration Acts. Her job, in other words, is pretty much trying to ensure churches and people of faith be forced to act against their conscience in matters relating to sodomy. And there she was, preaching from behind the pulpit at FBC Orlando, scolding the church for “kicking out” kids who were gay (IE exercising Biblical church discipline) and blaming suicide rates for the LGBTQXYZ community on the church. Oh, and she says the “whosoever” in John 3:16 has no asterisk, and lesbians, gays and the transgendered are saved, too.
If I said it went down hill from there, it would be an understatement. Again, no Gospel. No talk of sin. Only affirming homosexuals in their sin and explicitly preaching them into Heaven." - http://polemicsreport.com/2016/06/15/sbc-megachurch-says-lgbt-community-is-the-chief-cornerstone/

Also very sad to note Larry G. Mills of Mt Sinai Missionary Baptist Church twisted scripture and blasphemed God by saying the LGBT is the cornerstone instead of Christ. He twisted Ephesians 2:20-21.  Mr. Larry is a false teacher and I do not encourage anyone to attend his church in light of 1 John 4:1. What ever happened to an overseer preaching the word in and out of season and rightfully dividing the word? - 2 Timothy 2:15, 2 Timothy 4:2.
This is what heretical groups like First Baptist Orlando promote. They promote a "unity" that is not Biblical by not testing all teaching against scripture, instead they twist scripture to flatter people to hell apart from God.

Jeff Maples of pulpitandpen said
- At the #LoveOrlando Citywide ecumenical prayer-fest, hosted by Southern Baptist Megachurch, FBC Orlando pastored by David Uth, pastor of Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church, in Orlando Florida, Larry G. Mills, made a rather interesting comment regarding the LGBTQXYZ community in the area. Now, keep in mind, this is the same SBC Church that hosted a Seventh Day Adventist cult member to come preach. In reference to the recent Islamic terrorist attack against our fellow Americans, Mill's, a Pastor who claims he believes the Word of God, sets aside all Scriptural truth in the name of “love.”

Therefore you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens of the saints and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the cornerstone. In Him the whole building is fitted together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord.… – Ephesians 2:19-21


This is blasphemy of the highest level. To claim that a group of people that God abominates (Leviticus 18:22) and who, unless repent of their sin, will not enter the Kingdom of God (1 Cor. 6:9-10) is in the place of the Son of God himself is to set one’s self up as anti-Christ (2 Thes 2:4). This man has exposed himself as a liar and a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Avoid!
I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. – Romans 16:17" http://pulpitandpen.org/2016/06/15/baptist-pastor-larry-g-mills-calls-lgbtq-the-head-cornerstone-a-title-reserved-for-jesus/

Here are Mr. Larry  Mill's exact words - [Transcription] "We’re not peculiar because of race or gender or creed. But in Orlando we are peculiar because of E. Pluribus Unum. Out of many come one. We are peculiar because we have leadership that knows how to fight….We are peculiar because we know how to let theological differences and disputes and factions not get in the way of love and Christ. We are peculiar…because we believe in the Word, and what others would have against us, what others would show as a stumbling stone, we’ve elevated to be the head of the corner, and right now, no matter what people [inaudible] might think, that LGBTQ area is the head cornerstone, and we are here to lift up and magnify, and allow them to know, that regardless of people’s opinion, regardless of where we are, love triumphs over evil."




The gay agenda was elevated above Christ at this false unity event. Read more on how God feels about the gay agenda here - http://www.gty.org/resources/articles/A170/gods-plan-for-the-gay-agenda





CONCLUSION

First Baptist Church of Orlando is an apostate church and does not promote and teach the true gospel according to scriptures. David Uth and Larry Mills are wolves in sheep's clothing. I pray they are led to repentance. This church and two men will lead you to hell apart from God for eternity.  This vigil promoted a false gospel that flatters people to hell apart from God. The gospel must be shared and contended for at all costs. - Jude 1:3. I encourage you to leave First Baptist church of Orlando if you are attending and find a biblically sound church that preaches the true gospel.
