Look At The World…What Do You See?

WW 3 Has Begun

The majority of this world’s population are poor (by U.S. standards) and disaffected, probably half are desperately so.

Except in countries dominated by Dictators or pseudo-Dictators, National Leadership is chosen by a political ‘Beauty Contest’ instead of whomever is best prepared, informed and equipped to do the job.

As concerns civilized (read biblical) principles and values, the greatest portion of people do not have, nor do they understand what any of this means.

Only in what we call The West do people come close to living a healthful, safe, productive and free life! Unless you and your forebears have been or were living under a rock, you know all this is the product of biblical principles and values.

No nation nor people group the world has ever known has profited, the way we in the West have, by pagan or humanistic means. The major civilizations of history rose and fell on the strength of their leaders, their needs and often the necessities of their day. Many attributed their power and prestige to their gods, who were capricious at best and brutal at worst.

The West has prospered because of her commitment to biblical values and principles. The Protestant Reformation led the way, with it’s biblical commitment to individual worth and freedom of both belief and speech. The United States of America grew out of that sentiment and circumstance, with Great Britain and France following suit….albeit in their own way.

France tried Humanism [In the wake of our Revolution] for a decade or so, with little success and much bloodshed. Citizens were decapitated for the simplest of crimes, mostly for being connected to the former monarchism either in speech or in practice. They even tried a 10-day week, which was not really workable.

The Biblically-Based United States blazed the trail toward individual freedom and wealth, setting an example no other nation has yet exceeded. The water-shed event was World War II. Fascist Germany, Italy and Japan sought to conquer the world, through military subjugation. Only the U.S. stood in her way. Russia was no match, Great Britain, France and even China could not stall the march to victory.

When the U.S. entered the fray, it was over! Biblical principles of industry and sacrifice, coupled with prayer and the single-mindedness borne of a spiritual conviction that God was on the side of Right, motivated and empowered the Western Victory!

It took three and a half years to amass the men and materiel to launch the Invasion on Europe. During that time there were delaying and consolidation efforts in which Italy fell and Japan was stalled. When all was ready, however, the overwhelming might of America was brought to bear on the enemies of Freedom and the war was over in a year.

This ushered in a 50-year period when the U.S. dominated the world’s economy and became a Beacon of Liberty for millions of the world’s people. As long as America stood strong, there was hope. As long as America was strong, the enemies of Freedom and Free Enterprise were at a loss.

In spiritual terms, the ‘god of this world’ took notice! Over the years he orchestrated an effort to make sure this never happened again! Nazism was rooted in the occult [look it up!]. Communism is clearly anti-God. Islam is overtly anti-Christian in belief and practice. There is actually a competition between the Messiah of Christianity and the Mahdi of Islam for control of the world. Everything else is humanistic, spiritistic or animistic.

In our lifetime, it is only in the U.S., Canada, Great Britain  and Australia (somewhat) have we seen any overt ‘nod’ toward the God of The Bible, and that has significantly decreased over the last 50 years. Western Europe is awash in secularism and anti-Christian philosophies. Their  values and laws demonstrate this.

The same is true in the U.S. Today, our government is focused on playing nice with the U.N., in order to bring the world together under one Head. As I write this [March 29, 2016] the U.N. has just announced that Israel is (once again) the worst violator of Human Rights in 2016. Not North Korea. Not any Islamic country. The only Democracy in the Middle East! Also, today, the News was of an airliner diverted to Cyprus, on a flight from Egypt. The U.N. provided a map of the region with the flight path highlighted. Every country was named except Israel! It’s as though she does not exist.

Message? God Is Public Enemy Number One! Who does this? Answer: The Enemy of our Soul: Satan himself. The effort is to dampen and demean anything Christian, while exalting anything humanistic or counter The One True God of Heaven (which includes Judaism].

I have mentioned only a very few of the most obvious efforts. We could talk all day about what the world calls Fleeing Immigrants. Not Fugitives from Islam! Not Refugees of a vicious, religious pogrom. Immigrants who have every right to be assimilated into whichever country they enter, regardless of laws or customs. Regardless of the safety or survival of that country.

These are a few of the Up-Side-Down situations facing the world. Why? Because the ‘god of this world,’ rules in the affairs of men! Because the Prince of the power of the air is carving out a world-system sympathetic to his purpose, which is World Domination with him as Ruler!

When you cannot understand how it is that sane men and women can do some of the things they do (in government or in court houses) look to your Bible!

Ex: The Bible points to a Man of Sin who will ride to the rescue of Israel, with the aid of the Western Nations of the world. Israel will be under attack from her neighbors. The world will be in economic and political turmoil. The world will be looking for a strong leader who will do what’s necessary to ‘fix things.’

Do you see anyone, on the scene or the horizon, who possesses these qualities? Do you see the American electorate tolerating such a character, to run their country? Yes? Then you can see The End, from Here!!

Fundamentalism At Work

Poking The Bear

DON’T POKE THE BEAR UNLESS YOU’RE PREPARED TO FINISH IT!

We hear a lot about Islamic Fundamentalists, usually in connection with terrorist attacks and/or beheadings. What is the difference between a Muslim and a Fundamentalist Muslim?  Answer? The same as between a Christian and a Fundamentalist Christian. A Christian may be anyone who says that’s what they are. A fundamentalist Christian is one who believes (acting upon) what The Bible says about sin, salvation and the Christian life.

We do not hear of Christians blowing up airports or killing innocent people because this is not a fundamental part of Christian doctrine. Pursuing God through violence is not the basic structure or function of Christianity.

When President Obama says terrorism is not what Islam is about, then proceeds to reference these terrorist attacks as proceeding from fundamentalist Muslims, he’s making a fine distinction, probably lost on most of us. Either that or he is deliberately trying to deceive us. We, being those who know very little about Islam.

In post-post-modern America, that last statement might be considered unfair, since words only mean (today) what I think they mean or what I say they mean….to me. In this way, we can talk about conflicting ideas as if they are in harmony with one another and not be wrong. Everything Is My Opinion.

In the last 70 years the word ‘fundamentalist’ has been equated with all that is bad about a philosophy or religion. This is not true with any of the sciences. Abandon the basic principles of physics and the world with explode … Literally!   With religion, however, ‘fundamentalism’ has become a very dangerous and destructive philosophy….in the minds of most people.

What is not said, but understood by literate and rational people, from all walks of life, is that when a religion or philosophy or science is pursued according to it’s basic tenets, it’s Fundamentalism at work!

Fundamental Christianity is focused on what The Bible teaches and ONLY what The Bible teaches, when interpreted by an ordinary hermeneutic (system of interpretation): the one we all apply to everything we read and use for everyday life.

Fundamentalist Islam, however, is bent on dominating the world, by force if necessary, in order to make way for their “Messiah.” It has ever been their pattern, beginning with the Arab countries round about.

The first 50 years of Islam saw Mohammed conquering Syria, Iraq, Iran (Persia), Egypt and the area we know as Israel: Damascus to Egypt. In 668 Muslims began a conquest of the Roman Capital, in the East, Constantinople that would take 11 years (on and off). By 698 Islam had conquered all of North Africa, attacking Sicily in 700 A.D.

Islamic, Moorish North Africa, attacked Spain in 711 A.D. establishing a Muslim presence until 742, when Charles Martel (and others) eventually drove them out of most of Spain.

But then came the re-invasion of Constantinople, which would result in Muslim conquest and a name change: Istanbul, in the Muslim country we know, today, as Turkey. The Seljuk Empire would unite Mesopotamia and a large portion of Persia. Muslims would continue penetrating Europe throughout the next 400 years. The Crusades would later serve to keep them ‘home’ defending Jerusalem and other Moslem cities.

After this the Ottoman Empire began invading Europe in 1300 A.D. Over the next 500 years it would dominate most of Southeastern Europe. This continuous turmoil led to the Renaissance, or Age of Enlightenment, as educators, scholars, scientists, etc. fled the old Roman city of Constantinople and surrounding Southeastern Europe, bringing their knowledge with them.

The flow of European and Middle Eastern history is linked to Islamic Expansion. Why is Islam so focused on controlling the world? Because the Fundamental Religious Belief of Sunni Muslims teaches that their ‘Savior,’ the Mahdi, cannot come until / unless the world is dominated by Islam.

THIS is Fundamentalist Sunni Islam! When is Islam stirred to action? According to the Koran, whenever it is attacked [Sura 2:190-193  (Penquin Classics Edition) “Fight those that fight against you, slay them wherever you find them. Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God’s religion reigns supreme.”)

The West attacked Islam in the 1990’s, with the Gulf War. Just about every Western Nation either took part or supported that invasion of Iraq — a Shiite nation, run by a Sunni Dictator. Sunnis make up about 80% of Arabs, but Shias are the most Militant.

Shias believe the Mahdi is awaiting that time when the Earth is mostly Moslem, in order to come and create the Ultimate Caliphate. Sunnis don’t believe he’s been born as yet and are patiently awaiting his arrival. Both believe if you strike them, they can strike you back!

NOTE: There is no correlating passage in The Bible, telling Christians to dominate the Earth through violence, nor strike back at someone. The Bible teaches us to love one another, to do good to one another, if you are struck on the cheek, turn the other one….as far as it depends upon you, live at peace with all men.”

Fundamentalist Christianity only wants people to hear The Gospel of salvation in The Lord Jesus Christ, repent of their sins and believe on Him for eternal life. We have no other message; No other plan or purpose. No other weapon than God’s Word. No other kingdom but that in Heaven. We are ambassadors of Christ, here to represent Him, not build a Caliphate or Kingdom. And, when it’s over, we’re going Home!

The West has ‘poked the Bear,’ and it is now justified in it’s attack upon us! Where will all this end? With a new U.S. President who has Visions of Grandeur?  One who is used to getting his own way?  One who carries a ‘big stick,’ but isn’t prone to ‘walking softly?’

We’ll Have To Wait In Order To Find Out! It May Not Be Long.

What In The World!?

Earth Hands of God

The Bible boldly declares that this world is not going to be here, forever! One day Jesus will come and set all things right! Until then, however, ‘the prince of the power of the air,’ rules in the affairs of men!

Americans often think they are immune, given our circumstance and standing in the world. That notion should have been all but erased, given the last 50 years of our history! However, many Church people still believe things are going to get better and better, until Jesus comes. Kenneth Copeland said as much, just in the last few weeks: “God Is Re-Birthing America!” He sees the ‘end of the Babylon system’ attempting to take over America!

But what saith the scriptures? Unless you are living under a rock, this world is NOT getting better! America is NOT getting better! Millennials are enthusiastic about supporting an avowed Socialist for President!! The next generation is even more disconnected from reality.

We are being threatened by cultural issues, financial issues, political issues, global issues and religious issues. The threat of nuclear destruction has never been more imminent and/or possible. North Korea is threatening to drop a Hydrogen bomb on New York City.

What’s Going On? The Bible teaches us that God created this world; that almost immediately Adam gave this creation over to Satan, as Conservator or Steward. The Principle is found in Romans 6:16: “...to whomsoever ye yield yourself to obey, his servant ye are.”

The principle is illustrated in the ancient Jewish or Eastern legal system. Under that law a man might purchase a property but not receive the benefit of it, until / unless he came and took possession. Until then, those who were there or poachers could work the land and reap the benefit, even though it was not their’s.

That Principle is being worked out where this Earth is concerned. Jesus bought it back, on the Cross, paying The Price. One day He will return to take possession and rule over this, His rightful possession. Until then, interlopers are in charge. Satan and his minions have control, even as we believe civil authorities do.

The Bible reflects this in a number of places and ways. It refers to this world system as lying “in wickedness.” [I Jn. 5:19] That the “course of this world” is being determined by “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.” [Eph. 2:2]  That we are not dealing with men and political philosophy, but with “principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” [Eph. 6:12]

Satan is now called ‘the god of this world,’ his minions, the demons, are rulers, ‘princes,’ over the Earth.   Ex: When Daniel prayed, God answered [Dan. 10]. Yet the angel, sent to give Daniel the message from God, was delayed 21 days by ‘the prince of the kingdom of Persia.’ [v. 13]  Michael was sent to aid this angel who said he and Michael spent those 21 days with ‘the kings of Persia,‘  [demons, no doubt] who rule over this part of Earth.

As Michael was explaining things to Daniel, he mentioned the ‘prince of Grecia,’ another demonic ruler, while Jesus later referred to Satan as “the prince of this world” [Jn 12:31; 14:30]. Paul referred to Satan as “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.” [Eph. 2:2]

There are other allusions to this demonic organizational structure in the Book of The Revelation. John is given the vision of three unclean spirits coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, in Rev. 16. We are told they are “the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

The Point Is: This earthly world and all its inhabitants are governed by the forces of darkness and evil! The godly do not have an real power. At best, believers are the “leaven” [yeast] providing a Restraining Force, until The Time is right. During this period, Satan is busy working out his purposes: to be like God! God is graciously permitting all this….within limits.

For Satan to succeed, the “Restraining Force or Influence” must be removed. This is The Church: the Bride of Christ, in which dwells His Holy Spirit. When that occurs, the stage will be set for The Great Tribulation! A 7-year battle between the largely unrestrained forces of evil and Israel. Jesus interfering just before Israel is defeated!

Today? Satan and his minions know their time is short. They continue to deceive, through lies, signs and wonders. They sow discord and seek to create that global Economic, Political and Religious Structure which will be used to dominate the world.

Look Around! It’s working! the Family is destroyed, Decency, Honor, Integrity are Gone! The Financial Systems are teetering. The Political systems are in disarray. The Church has almost ceased to exist! It has certainly been co-opted and marginalized. Will it get worse? Oh, Yes!

It will get far more dangerous for Christians and then for everyone else! When it doesn’t seem that things can get any worse, Jesus Will Come! He will put down the rebellion and ascend His Rightful Place: The Throne of David!  From here He will rule the Earth.

“Even So, Lord Jesus, Come!”

The Blessed Hope Is Not Their Focus

Signs Wonders Bentley

“Just as my boot made contact with her nose, she fell under the power of God.”  Todd Bentley

The Spirit of God expressly and specifically revealed to the Apostle Paul that, “... in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;..’

In addition they will gravitate to more mundane, human expressions flowing from their own desires and ideas in an attempt to improve upon The Gospel by imposing legalistic standards which would mark them as ‘spiritual.’ At least more spiritual than others.  I Tim. 4:1,2

That day is here! It has been ‘here’ since Jesus left this planet for Home, due to the fact that this entire Church Age is what The Bible calls ‘the latter days,’ and because men are always going to be men!

However, as the days grow shorter and the enemy of our souls grows more bold [God’s restraining hand being lessened, as we move closer to The End], he is able to influence men in ever greater ways to leave ‘The Faith,’ and cling to their own designs and devices.

Early efforts included overt persecution and horrible executions, at the hands of both civil governmental and ecclesiastical authorities. Today, things are quite different. The pressure is coming from a people who hate God and want no part of His moral standards. They have become a powerful force to limit and even thwart Christian principles and godly behaviors….globally.

The list of morally degrading and socially destructive practices is too long and too disgusting to rehearse. The most recent may be the casual and lighthearted discussion of bestiality on the TVLAND show called “Younger.” After which, I read, Whoopi Goldberg sings a Hymn.

These are social events and developments The Church exists to prevent (by her presence in society and her willingness to speak against), as her members reflect both ‘salt and light.’ However, this Institution has been thoroughly corrupted and co-opted by worldliness and pride!

Consider: Evangelicals are gravitating to a Presidential candidate who’s life and lifestyle represents everything they stand against! Now, the polls are showing that the more an Evangelical voter attends Church, the less likely he/she is to vote for him. What does that say?

It says The Church of Jesus Christ exists….just not out in the public eye! The public face of The Church has been swallowed up by greed, pride, avarice, popularity and spiritism. An Institution based on Spirituality is now either groveling at the feet of earthly ‘mammon,’ or dancing to the tune of spiritual deception.

Let me explain: In my book, “Frontal Assault!” I seek to highlight the doctrinal battles The Church has faced since it’s inception. Battles which have been largely the same, generation after generation, for almost 2000 years. That Battle is no longer being waged! At least not the way it has always been waged.

Today, The Battle is more spiritual. Instead of tackling the issue of how a person is saved, the New Tactic is simply to distract people with shiny trinkets and dark secrets. I speak of the ever-evolving nature of what we call The Charismatic Movement.

The Bible makes The Case that IT is the foundation upon which our Faith rests. It encourages us to ‘study (that Word) to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  [II Tim. 2:15]

To illustrate, the Spirit of God provides a beginning list: profane [things on the other side of the door from holiness] and vain babblings [empty sounding & useless discussions] about things which only lead to more ungodliness.

We are then given an illustration, in the lives of two men: Hymaenaeus and Philetus. Men who strayed from The Truth of God’s Word, saying the resurrection has already past, meaning what we call ‘The Rapture.’ Christians [The Bride of Christ] being called up to Heaven and given their reward.

Harmless misunderstanding? No. They were seeking to create New Doctrine! A doctrine that would subvert and destroy the faith of some. As you might imagine, God takes this sort of thing seriously! Men and women tampering, not only with His Word, but with His Bride!

The instruction from God is: shun these men! Literally,  stand away from them; avoid getting involved with them AND their teachings. Do not follow their doctrine, it is Wrong and it is Destructive of your faith!

Good Counsel? Obviously, but the Western Church has not followed that counsel…to her shame and hurt. Each one, claiming to follow God’s Word, yet carving out religious systems which either clearly deny the Scriptures or The Christ upon which they claim to stand!

If that’s not bad enough, now we have religious groups, claiming to stand opposed to these aberrant systems, seeking to join with them in religious ministry and purpose! Of course this is not really New. What’s New is the way they go about it.

They reduce the Gospel to a general message of religiosity, or worse; reduce the ministry of the Holy Spirit to a Parlor Trick, all the while exalting Him above Jesus!

Harsh? Have you ever seen these people in action? Barking like dogs? Staggering around ‘drunk in the Holy Spirit?’ Telling people who are seriously ill and desperate that all they have to do is send them money and God will heal them or make them rich? Kicking a woman in the mouth in order to heal her….because God told him to do it?

Where are the godly, biblically informed, decent /rational men and women, in this movement, standing up against all this?

Of course, there are some. One man (a leader in this movement) wrote: “…during a season of spiritual coldness and intellectual pride, I tried to deny the things of the Spirit, wanting to distance myself from what I felt were the abuses and errors of the Pentecostal movement. But the testimony of the Word was too clear for men to deny and the Spirit’s work in my life too strong for me to resist.”

This is a man ashamed at the “..folly and gullibility, the lack of discernment and the failure to test all things by the Word….the carnality and ease with which these people are duped and defrauded.”

How are they defrauded? By accepting the notion that either a person is saved when they speak in gibberish or hear voices or see visions, or that the proof of their salvation is found in these same experiences!

What was once a small, marginalized religious movement has become A Force To Be Reckoned With! The last three Presidential Elections have featured men and women on the Ticket who represent this philosophy! They are seeking to conquer the “Mountain of Government” so Jesus can come back. The world being too evil for Him, as it is.

I don’t make this stuff up!

Where Is America Headed After This Election?

Tenents of Totalitarianism

There is no way to ignore the Decline of these United States, over the last 50 years! No area of Corporate Life has been untouched by the ‘Change Agents’ who fancy a more Totalitarian form of government.

There is also no way to ignore the fact that the Constitution and Laws of the United States of America were based on biblical principles. Critics will tell you the Founders were not all [not mostly] committed Christians. Critics will tell you that the Doctrine of the Separation of Church and State belies the claim.

However, it is impossible to ignore the multitude of quotations and references to the God of the Bible and to Christian principles found, not only in the documents and writings and speeches of men associated with Christian Churches and Christianity, but also among men who had no connection, indeed, no time for God and/or Christianity.

The Basic Biblical Principles are too obviously Right and Good to ignore! Those who did / do ignore them end up in political, moral, financial, social decline and chaos. Look around the world. Look at your neighbors. Look at our schools, churches, courts, neighborhoods and families.

The U.S. of A. is a Federal Republic. The powers of central government are restricted, with States retaining a degree of self-government. Ultimate power rests with the voters who choose their governmental representatives.

Dictators, Fascists, Communists, Socialists and Oligarchs hate this! It restricts their ability to dominate in such a way as to accrue the desired power and/or wealth. They also hate our economic system, which is a form of Capitalism: a competitive economy, consisting of privately owned businesses and investments, wherein production and pricing is driven by competition and demand in a Free Market.

To make it work that nation must have 1) Free Elections, 2) A Free Market, 3) A Representative Form of Government, 4) A Judicial System Driven By Settled Law and 5) A Traditional Family Structure.

Remove any one of these and the structure is weakened, leading to a complete collapse.

The United States of America Is In Collapse! Through a series of U.S. Supreme Court Decisions, we have abandoned The Family, Unborn Children, Ten Commandments [which forms the basis of all law], Prayer & Bible Reading in Government Schools and all Objective Standards of Morality.

At the same time we have Enshrined Abortion, Homosexuality, Sodomy and Oral Sex as normal sexual behavior. For our troubles we have created a host of new and growing sexually-transmitted diseases, most of which are incurable. We have also degraded sexual behavior to ‘entertainment’ and further weakened the Institutions of Marriage and Family.

Where are we going with all this? Farther away from our Founding Principles, farther away from the Strength of our Republic, farther away from The Republic. Close to half of all ‘Millennials’ see no problem with Socialism…enter Bernie Sanders. The majority of those who consider themselves Christian embrace some form of either the Charismatic Movement or the Contemporary Movement…enter Ted Cruz &  Marco Rubio.

However, Donald Trump is probably going to win the Republican Nomination for President of these United States. Why? Because he presents a ‘No-Nonsense, Take-No-Prisoners’ approach to governance, just like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson….right?

Wrong! We are at the End of our Corporate Rope! We have no idea what America is; what The Rule of Law is; what Common Decency is; what / Who God is; why we have a Free Economic System, a Traditional Family Structure, the Rule of Law nor why we can no longer educate our children!

But we know The Donald with Make America Great Again!

How? He will bully Congress, Curse the Dictators, Threaten Militant Islam and Demand the world operate the way HE thinks is best! No? That’s how he does business. That’s what he’s saying on the ‘Stump.’  And he has the concept of ‘Executive Orders’ to back him up.

Congress will not get in the way of a popular President, elected with an overwhelming majority of voters. They never have. The Republican Establishment is already lining up behind Rubio, because he can be counted on to ‘negotiate.’ Of the three (Trump, Rubio and Cruz), Cruz is more popular with conservative voters than is Rubio because he doesn’t negotiate with the Republican moderates.

America is heading toward a significant change in political, economic and social policy. What does a Democratic Rabble look like? Three or four hundred million independent citizens with twenty different social, moral, religious and economic values vying for dominance?

It Looks Like Disaster! You DO Know America (probably the entire Western Hemisphere) is NOT in the biblical prophetic scheme….Right?

Get God Out of Our Lives!

In the days of The (biblical) Judges, the Bible tells us there was no King. The result? “... every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” [Judges 21:25] In the eyes of God, this was the epitome of rebellion and defeat.

The removal of God from the public discourse has been the goal for generations. The phrase “In God We Trust” first appeared on the 2-cent coin in 1864, in response, the product of citizens’ request and Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase’s, instruction.

The Nation was facing a Great Moral and Political Upheaval. The consequence of which was an out-pouring of religious sentiment. The next year it appeared on all gold coinage and by 1873 all U.S. currency was emblazoned with these words.

To say everyone was happy would be a significant over-statement of fact. Open societies don’t work that way and the U.S. is no exception.

As with anything worthwhile, it requires ‘Adults’ to see what’s really happening and take the necessary steps to instill confidence, provide security and/or hope. The critics and rabble-rousers never do. Their goal is to create instability and chaos. The more unstable the society the greater chance they have of winning some precious ground.

We are ever in danger of losing our precious heritage to The Minority. The difference in 2016 is that The Minority is now The Majority.

A disconnected group of overt God-haters, avowed Humanists, Socialist opportunists and a wide variety of generally immoral souls, have joined together (in separate times and ways) to remove God from the Public Discourse. Some may claim respect for God, but they hate Who He is and What He stands for!

This time around, they are arguing FOR a pluralistic society which would give credence and worth to every (read “any”) religious orientation.

They argue that the U.S. was never founded on biblical principle. They maintain that the individual is more important than the collective. They fight to ‘set men free’ from the shackles of an imposed morality [Read God].

Their argument is that such a society will be Stronger, Better, More Just, More Accepting, More Unified.

One Problem: Who’s Morality Will Be Supreme? One who fears The Great Lawmaker of Heaven? Or the one who favors only his / her own standards? The issue is whether laws / standards will reflect something / Someone outside ourselves, Who is absolutely Just, Righteous and Holy, or every Tom, Dick and Mary that comes along?

Reality? To govern effectively, there must be consensus on laws, statutes, standards, ideals, purposes, and even language. Without this it’s “The Barbary Coast!”

Well….Welcome To The Barbary Coast!!

The Humanists, Relativists and Anarchists love a more flexible standard of Right and Wrong. This means NOTHING is right and NOTHING is wrong. Everything is relative and susceptible to private interpretation. Can you say, “Congress?” Or “The Judicial System?”

There are 363,086 words in H.R. 3962, better known as The Affordable Care Act, what we call Obamacare. Substantive words amounted to about 2/3 that many, leaving 1/3 of the wording superfluous. This is what Congress does to forestall the lawyers from finding loop-holes, or other problems.

It doesn’t work! The U.S. Supreme Court upheld a run at this Bill by ruling that our premiums are really taxes, something the Bill did not state, thus enshrining this massive Take-Over of 1/3 of the entire gross national product, as forever legitimate.

With the National ‘Parents’ acting out this charade, for wealth and power, is it any wonder the kids on the street are doing what they’re doing? What’s the difference between a teen-ager who knocks someone smaller or weaker in the head, simply to take what he or she needs, and ruthless ‘Robber Barons,’ or Duly Elected Politicians?

Both scenarios are just as unconscionable! The difference is that the kid on the street doesn’t have “The Power,” and so gets hauled off to jail, while our politicians, lawyers and bean-counters get wealthy and accumulate greater power for the next event.

THIS is what’s behind the ‘Get-God-Out-of-Our-Life’ effort! It’s not a move to create equality, rather a move to eliminate objective standards of morality! A situation that allows the Power-Brokers to do what the Street-Hoodlums do, but without penalty!

Now Do You Get It?

The Transgender Issue is a significant Case In Point. A new law in New York & Seattle, makes it a crime to NOT refer to a person according to the gender by which they ‘identify,’ once you know what it is.  This is what’s called a Super-Right. You don’t have that. In a society with no objective moral standard, where do you go for redress?

The Bible is the only Book which successfully argues for an Objective Standard of Righteousness. Now do you know why IT and It’s God must go?

We’re All Becoming Useful Idiots

 

Impose My Atheism

The anti-Christian Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent a vehement letter to Northern Illinois University (NIU) demanding it remove the Bible from the university’s hotel rooms.

Why? Because angry atheists find it “obnoxious.”

In response the University gave into this complaint and removed ALL the Gideon-placed Bibles from their hotel rooms. No resistance. No court of law. No rational response. Just do what we’re told or suffer ‘Bad Press.’

This is but another in a long line of minority-opinions given credence, under the mistaken assumption that the U.S. is NOT a Christian Nation and to make non-believers comfortable the majority must consider their feelings and alter over 200 years of American history.

The U.S. Supreme has ruled that The Bible is Free Speech and, as such, may be voiced and distributed in public places, under our Constitution.

So, how do these anti-God groups continue to win [simply by writing a letter of condemnation]?

The answer is in found in Stalin’s use of the phrase “Useful Idiots.” A concept drawn from Vladimir Lenin’s plan to conquer the world through Communism, with Russia ultimately ruling over all.

In the U.S. it was Saul Alinsky, the child of Jewish Russian immigrants settled in Chicago. His chosen field of endeavor was architecture but the Great Depression thwarted his goals. He was eventually hired by the State of Illinois as a criminologist, but also began working as an organizer with the Congress of Industrial Organizations (The C.I.O.), part time.

By 1939, he became less active in the labor movement and more active in general community organization. His purpose was to “turn scattered, voiceless discontent into a united protest.” He also won the admiration and praise of Adlai Stevenson (a one-time Presidential Candidate with the Democrat Party), who said Alinsky, “most faithfully reflects our ideals of brotherhood, tolerance, charity and dignity of the individual.”

Saul Alinksy died in 1972, after writing two important books: “Rules For Radicals,” and “Reveille For Radicals.” It would be a young Wellesley student (Hillary Rodham) who would make Alinksy a somewhat household name among political radicals.

Hillary wrote her Senior Thesis [1969] on Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals,” having met him at a Church (?) Youth Meeting in Chicago. Admittedly, her Thesis was a critique of the book, not a tribute. However, she closed her thesis by emphasizing that she thought Alinsky deserved a place in the pantheon of social activists, alongside Martin Luther King, Walt Whitman and Eugene Debs (labor leader and 5-time Socialist Party Candidate for President].

Another Democrat by the name of Barak Obama would also mention Alinsky in his book: Dreams From My Father. Mentored by the communist Frank Marshall, a man whom the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities (Territory of Hawaii), and the U.S. House Un-American Activities Committee accused of being involved in several communist-front organizations, Marshall would be (in Obama’s words) like a second father to him.

What did Alinksy say? He outlined 8 Rules For Radicals: How To Create A Social State. It’s proven to be quite simple. The eight rules are:

  1. Control healthcare and you control the people
  2. Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
  3. Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
  4. Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
  5. Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)
  6. Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school
  7. Remove the belief in God from the Government and from Schools
  8. Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

Does any of this sound familiar? It is a simplified version of Lenin’s Plan. It demands Central Control of all Governmental Agencies and Policies. It works to create a social system divided into two parts: 1. Leaders and 2. Workers.

Leaders know what’s best and can be trusted to use wealth properly. Workers do not know what’s best and are therefore relegated to do the menial (and necessary) work.

Standing between this Ideal and our current Reality, is God! God is NOT a Communist, nor a Socialist. God advocates for Individual Responsibility, governed by the noblest of ideals: The Bible.

NOW do you understand why Bibles must be removed from the public discourse and domain?

NOW do you understand why our lower courts support these demands?

NOW do you understand the Calls for Gun Control, Federal Educational Guidelines, Universal Healthcare, as well as an Insane National Debt?

Only God stands between Them and Us! NOW do you understand all the talk about how the U.S. is not now / has never been a Christian Nation?

The technical reality, however, is that biblical principles have dominated the thinking and polices of this nation, since it’s inception….until now.

So….What Policies Do YOU Support? You just may be a “Radical!”
