Sexual Harassment Firestorm And The True Problem That Has Been Mocked By The Left: It’s Something Called ‘Sin’ And ‘Our Sin Nature’

November 30, 2017

I’ll just say up front where I’m going with this.  We obviously have a problem with sexual harassment and abuse, but if you think Republicans are bad, just realize that Democrats are proving themselves to be truly evil.  You won’t find a story describing the number of Republicans facing charges of harassment or abuse compared to the number of Democrats currently facing those charges because there are a LOT of Democrats currently facing those charges and the media protects and shelters Democrats just as they did when Bill Clinton was being accused of these things and much, much worse.  And, to continue,  if you think it’s bad in America, go to a country that does not have a Judeo-Christian tradition to see what sexual harassment and abuse truly looks like – and you will be shocked at how good America is by comparison.  I am going to submit to you that the problem is sin and our sin nature, and that sexuality is deep within the beast that is man, and the only way to get the man to reign in the beast is to literally scare the hell out of him.  Which is impossible when that man has been steeped in a worldview that ridicules hell.  Again, sexuality burns hot and deep in the beast that is man; and if there is no God, if there is no heaven and no hell, then there is nothing – NOTHING – beyond your opinion versus my opinion.  A partisan vote or a media propaganda poll or for that matter a legitimate vote or opinion poll among human beings has NOTHING to do with what is right or wrong: a majority doesn’t make right any more than might makes right.  But when we return to the realization that yes, we ARE all truly created in the Imago Dei, and that male and female He created us, then we have the basis for not only returning to a culture that veers back from the vile sexual values that secular liberal human progressives have been perverting us into, but a true foundation built on God and upon eternal truths that are truly right and there are things that are truly evil.  And that abusing a girl or a woman created in God’s image is in the category of evil even if a lot of people disagree.  We have a degenerate problem and we desperately need a transcendent solution.  That’s my synopsis.

It wasn’t all that long ago that Vice President Mike Pence made a statement that shouldn’t have garnered him anything but respect and even praise, but instead resulted in widespread ridicule and condemnation: he said that he would not be alone with a woman not his wife and would never attend any event with alcohol if his wife were not with him.

And he was actually condemned and demonized for that.

The liberal Washington Post argued as it’s headline title that “Pence’s unwillingness to be alone with a woman is a symptom of a bigger problem.”  And stated:

It’s easy to make jokes about, and it’s also easy to argue that this is nobody’s business but the Pences’. But there’s a deeply troubling worldview at work here, one that has profound implications for policy — and we’re already seeing it play out at both the state and federal levels.

Let’s take just a moment to consider this pair of rules Mike Pence has for himself. He obviously thinks that every interaction he has with a woman is so sexually charged that it’s safe to be around them only if there are other people there, too. Unless someone might be drinking, in which case even the presence of a crowd isn’t enough to prevent … something from happening. There’s little distance between that perspective and that of the ultra-Orthodox Jews who refuse to sit next to a woman on an airplane, or the fundamentalist Muslims who demand that women be covered head to toe to contain the unstoppable sexual allure that renders men unable to control their urges.

That was March 30 of this year.

Pence was stating that he would never allow himself to be in a position where he could harass or abuse a woman, nor would he ever allow himself to be in a position where he could ever be accused either rightly or wrongly for having harassed or abused a woman.  He would represent himself as a man of integrity.  And truly despicable people slimed him for it.

May I offer something that no liberal progressive will never comprehend called “moral clarity”???  The accusation that Mike Pence stating that he made a moral decision to govern his own behavior is akin to Islamic culture forcing women to cover themselves displays a degree of such moral idiocy and frankly such political bias that it is so far beneath contempt to be unreal.  When it comes to morality and moral decency, liberal progressives are literally both schizophrenic and psychotic.  They have no grasp of moral reality whatsoever.

What Mike Pence did is wrong, not allowing himself to be alone with a woman who isn’t his wife.  Restraining his own conduct that way.  Far, FAR better to be a liberal like Matt Lauer and have a damn button on his desk he can push to lock a door so he CAN be alone with a married woman who is not his wife and rape her until she passes out.

All the moral wisdom and moral clarity of liberalism in one bite.

The Washington Post is a discredited partisan witch-hunting band of propagandist hacks, but let’s take the roof off of what they were claiming in light of the avalanche of sexual harassment charges that began since one of the Democratic Party’s biggest donors got revealed as basically a serial rapist.

I’m going to say a few things about Roy Moore now: first being that, very unlike Democrats with first Al Franken (even with photographs of the turd in the act proving his guilt) and then John Conyers (who acknowledged his guilt in a legal settlement for sexual harassment), Republicans IMMEDIATELY distanced themselves from Roy Moore.  Oh, no, you did NOT have a Majority Leader Mitch McConnell attempt to justify Moore hanging around the way we awkwardly watched a Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi try to justify the unjustifiable.

Now, Roy Moore’s people have poked some serious holes in many of the accuser’s verifiable statements.  Interestingly, I wouldn’t mind if the entire case against Moore stood or fell on the alleged yearbook signature that it is claimed Moore signed in the high school yearbook of the woman making the most serious accusation.  Her attorney, famous legal hack Gloria Allred, refuses to allow ANY legitimate unbiased inspection of that yearbook, acknowledges as an officer of the court that she refused to ask her client if she actually saw Roy Moore sign her yearbook, because the answer might destroy her case, and refused Wolf Blitzer’s repeated demand to claim whether or not the signature is legitimateMultiple other witnesses have specifically refuted the account of a different Roy Moore accuser who claims Moore sexually assaulted her behind a restaurant.  There comes a point when maybe you’ve got a valid right to question 40 year-old claims of sexual abuse that come out one month before a critical US Senate race when one side claims to have evidence that it WILL NOT release to prove or disprove assertions.

Amazingly, ABC News immediately “reached out” to all 52 Republicans for their reaction to the allegations against Roy Moore.  I could find no example of any major media outlet attempting to pin down THE 46 Democrats and the 2 supposedly “independents” who always cast their vote with the Democrats on their reaction to Al Franken and the numerous allegations against him.  Some of which are evidenced by PHOTOGRAPHS of Franken IN THE ACT.  The Republican example was THE very top hit on the page to answer my Google search.  Whereas I looked through six pages of Google hits when I changed the search phrase from Senators Republicans respond Roy Moore to Senators Democrats respond Al Franken.  The closest thing I could find was from a source called “conservativereview.com.”  Which pointed out that at the time of its article, not ONE Democrat Senator had called for Al Franken to resign.  Rather, the only call was for a “Senate ethics investigation” which has never ONCE failed to expel a Senator since 1861 no matter how heinous any Senator ever acted.  For the record, the one “journalistic” news agency that most definitely did NOT “reach out” to all the Democrats in the Senate over Al Franken was ABC News which immediately played that trick to Republicans over Moore.

It’s this shameless trick the mainstream media plays over and over again, dating back to Walter Cronkite and even way before Old Man Walter who we found out was a doctrinaire liberal and slanted the news like a doctrinaire liberal before another doctrinaire liberal named Dan Rather tried to falsely frame George W. Bush with doctored documents.

The reason Republicans are so often utter cowards is because whenever anybody says or does anything offensive in our culture, you can bet that the media will cavalry itself over to every single Republican for a reaction and force them to go on the record fer or agin.  You never see that behavior with the media when the offensive words or deeds would embarrass Democrats.

But wait, you say.  Liberalism means respect for women.

Tell that to Al Franken and his now six so-far sexual assault accusers.  In uberleftist California, tell that to the 140 women who have described “a pervasive culture of misconduct in state government” by liberal Democrats such as Raul Bocanegra and Tony Mendoza.  Tell that to the multiple staffers of Rep. John Conyers.  Oh, wait, I’m sorry, fellow black Democrat James Clyburn says all those women were all white, and you know how them cracker bitches all lie.  So scratch them because Democrats are now as racist as they are rapist.  It was because cracker bitches are all stupid liars that prompted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to give an utterly incoherent defense of ConyersBut she’s been a holier-than-thou faux feminist Democrat who only sees evil in conservatives all her life.

Or we can take a trip down the pages of history and tell the story of liberals’ championing women.  Tell that to “the Lion of the Senate,” Ted Kennedy, who abandoned a woman to horribly and slowly die alone in the dark and cold of a watery grave.  A better term for Senator Kennedy would be “the senator of sleaze who was a drunk sexual bully.”  Tell that to Bill Clinton, hard-core sexual predator and rapist as even the New York Times is being forced to acknowledge by the standards that liberals tried to exclusively apply only to others.  We can take that same memory train when liberal progressives FIERCELY defended rapists and even child rapists like Roman Polanksi – who was adored and defended and celebrated and eulogized after drugging and sodomizing a 13-year old girl (something Roy Moore has not been accused of doing, fwiw).  Hey, let’s watch Hollywood adore this child rapist and tell me the likelihood of whether Judge Roy Moore who didn’t sodomize any young girls to the best of my knowledge would get such an ovation from this crowd:

“But he’s… he’s an ARTIST!” the left says. You know, because Beyoncé shouldn’t be forced to write or sing music condemning homosexuality the way that other artists like wedding photographers and bakers and custom-designers ought to be forced to condone the homosexuality that flagrantly flies in the face of their Christian biblical values. Because “art” is subjective, you see, and only liberalism qualifies as the sole critic of “art.” Mind you, Hollywood has been as racist as they have been religiously bigoted, with back-to-back years of all white nominees until political correctness forced them to pick some token negroes.

You have to apply a different standard to liberal progressives.  They’re better than everyone else, you see.  They deserve special treatment.  In fact, the class that creates “entitlements” are “entitled” to special treatment.  I know that Hitler ruined the term “master race” for everyone, and so we have to come up with a different name to describe what liberal progressives think of themselves.

Harvey Weinstein was one of damn near every single liberal progressive male in THE most liberal progressive industry in the world who routinely sexually abused women.  Think back to Bill Cosby, who endorsed Barack Obama in 2008 and said that those who opposed Barack Obama were “racists” in 2013.  Before his 2015 criminal charges.  What a damn miserable loathsome roach you are, Dr. Huckstable.

As we think of how vile the mainstream media is – and it is VILE, isn’t it NBC anchor Matt Lauer, CBS anchor Charlie Rose, NPR news chief Michael Oreskes, New York Times political reporter Glenn Thrush, and political analyst Mark Halperin – consider the fact that 96 percent of media political campaign donations went to Hillary Clinton.  Remember this of Halperin and the in-your-FACE bias of ABC:

And now ABC News has left in place its Political Director Mark Halperin. ABC has done this despite the network’s acknowledgement that Halperin wrote a memo that to many seems to direct ABC reporters, anchors and producers to slant its coverage by downplaying the misstatements of Democratic presidential candidate Senator John Kerry and by viewing negatively any misstatements by Republican candidate Bush.

I’ve been saying it for years now.  These people are as dishonest as the sun is hot.

Not that the sun has anything whatsoever to do with global warming, mind you.  Heat, as we all know, is entirely produced by man and specifically through CO2 – a substance that scientifically stupid people idiotically believe is necessary for trees and for life – but really is a poison that should be banned even though anthropogenic CO2 is responsible for less than 0.1 of one percent of the greenhouse effect.

And now think of who was administering that bias.  Take a moment to realize that when conservatives called these people “fake news,” it amounted to FLATTERY compared to what they truly are and always have been.  Because all these people who are such miserable roaches it is beyond unreal get to write our news for us.  These morally-diseased slimebags get to tell us what is true and what is false.

Democrats and liberal progressives didn’t bat an eye when Hillary Clinton received tens of millions of dollars from countries that systematically abuse women.

And now we all know why: because all the damn liberal progressives were systematically abusing women, too.

Just remember what the Democratic Party taught us just in the 90s alone: that a young woman getting on her knees to give a powerful man blowjobs in the workplace office is perfectly A-OK, and that all the women who accuse such powerful men of any misconduct are trailer trash and you can patently disregard anything they say.

Women are good for one thing and to do that one thing they need to do only two things: get on their knees and open their mouths.  But not to talk.  Every single Democrat – EVERY SINGLE ONE – taught America that fact in 1999.

And the mainstream media helped them write that truth and repackage it into something entirely different than what it actually was.

Let’s not leave out another very top Democrat Party machine: the tech industry.  Like all the rest of liberal progressives, the tech industry is a woman-abusing machine, too.

Ninety-nine percent of the woman-abusing tech industry’s campaign donations went to Hillary Clinton.

We can look at the college and university campuses that are steeped in secular humanist progressive liberalism and see the shocking statistics of sexual assault.  Their very own worldview created this toxic system.  There’s been a more than 200% increase in assaults on college campuses; and women are more likely to be sexually assaulted on those bastions of secular humanist progressive liberal values than damn near anywhere else.

We can now also look – sadly – at our military and see how the secular humanist, liberal progressive policies of Barack Obama made our military machine a stinking bed of sexual assault and sexual harassment.  It absolutely SKYROCKETED under Obama’s watch, most especially during Obama’s 2nd term – where as he told the Russian president while he was colluding with Russia on a hot microphone, “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”  And Obama EXPLOITED that “flexibility” in incredibly vile ways.  The dishonest mainstream media says that Obama was “fighting” sexual harassment/assault.  Baloney: both SKYROCKETED under him because of his policies as Obama abandoned all history, all tradition, all religion, all science about human biology, and imposed politically correct dogma as some kind of “solution.”

Just like in the Obama military, the vile record of sexual assault on secular humanism-dominated college campuses TRIPLED during Obama’s second term.

Now the amazing thing is that most women vote for this.

Now, I have just in the space above categorically demonstrated and documented that liberal progressives have absolutely no right and no platform to lecture anyone about the treatment of women or what is good or bad for women.  They themselves are a massive part of the damn problem.

If liberal progressives or Democrats want to pretend that the answer lies in education or “sexual harassment training,” allow me to simply state from the outset that the very ones “training” everyone else are themselves sexual predators and sexual harassers.

And anyone who wants to tell me that “we need more women” has to deal with the fact that women have overwhelmingly voted for these horrible, awful people.  Women are part of this too.  And women are corrupt.  I think of all the women who knew damn well what was going on and kept their mouths shut because the rapists and the sexual harassers were Democrats and they were ideologues who put their politics first and everything else second.

I think of liberal “journalist” Cokie Roberts who said that she knew for YEARS that John Conyers was a serial sexual harasser or worst and that “We all knew to avoid getting in an elevator with Rep. Conyers.”  But he was a Democrat, so we just took the stairs, let him prey on the stupid girls who didn’t know not to get in that elevator, and kept our mouths shut.  Because to open our mouths around Democrat men involves a penis being shoved in.  But we sure weren’t going to out this Democrat.

And the reason is that liberal-progressive so-called “feminists” have indoctrinated the belief that “being a woman” is numerically identical to “being a baby murderer,” such that if you don’t murder babies or believe that human life ought to have any sacred dignity whatsoever, you cannot qualify as a “woman.”

Mind you, these same liberal-progressive so-called “feminists” have arbitrarily decided that any man who decides he’s a woman IS a woman.

Understand that there are consequences to the idea that there is nothing whatsoever that is sacred about the dignity of human life.

Just like Nazism, an idea that began decades before the death camps and Zyclon B, ideas have consequences.

You cannot deny humanity and not have that evil ultimately emerge.

According to evolution, there is nothing special or sacred or dignified about you.  According to evolution:

humans are a tiny little twig representing one species among so many millions on this enormous arborescent tree of life

And any unwillingness to accept evolution merely:

represent our unwillingness to give up on the notion that there is meaning out there expressed in human terms, which is a kind of ultimate hubris.

Try to comprehend that any “morality” is a fabrication:

Asian Homo erectus died without issue and does not enter our immediate ancestry (for we evolved from African populations); Neanderthal people were collateral cousins, perhaps already living in Europe while we emerged in Africa… In other words, we are an improbable and fragile entity, fortunately successful after precarious beginnings as a small population in Africa, not the predictable end result of a global tendency. We are a thing, an item of history, not an embodiment of general principles.

Ah, yes, arguments of moral worth in evolutionary terms come up with the reasoning of Joseph Goebbels:

Certainly the Jew is also a Man, but the Flea is also an Animal.

Stephen Jay Gould phrased the worldview bluntly, stating that “there’s no reason humans are ‘higher’ life forms than bacteria or insects” [in Biography Magazine, March 1998, page 110].

A female is a human being, but the embryo is also a Homo Sapiens.  And that argument is actually true where Goebbels’ is intellectual evolutionary gibberish only if evolution is true and God is not.  Otherwise, we make up our own rules: the Jew is human if we allow the Jew to be human and the Jew is not human if we decide by popular vote or by dictator’s decree is not.  Barack Obama gave us all a classic example of this when he assured us that marriage was between one man and one woman until he decided it wasn’t.

It’s not enough to say that there is no meaning, no value and no purpose apart from a Creator God: there is no POSSIBILITY of any ultimate meaning, value or purpose apart from God.  And that is a rigorously proven fact.

Fact: there is a God OR it is perfectly appropriate to rape women; versus the Bible which has a decidedly different view:

In a  recent book, A Natural History of Rape: Biological Bases of Sexual Coercion,10 authors Randy Thornhill and Craig T. Palmer claim that rape is “a natural, biological phenomenon that is a product of the human evolutionary heritage,” just like “the leopard’s spots and the giraffe’s elongated neck.” In other words, rape is a biological “adaptation” that allows undesirable males the opportunity to pass on their genes. According to Randy Thornhill, “Every feature of every living thing, including human beings, has an underlying evolutionary background. That’s not a debatable matter.” According to the anthropology department at the University of California Santa Barbara, “That rape might be an adaptation is a reasonable hypothesis to pursue, and the proper framework is intersexual conflict.”11 If rape is just an evolutionary adaptation, then how can it be immoral?

The Bible says that morality is a result of choices that people make, and not the result of some conditioned evolutionary response. Is there any experimental evidence supporting this viewpoint? In a newly released book, Three Seductive Ideas, Harvard University psychologist, Jerome Kagan, makes the claim (and backs it up with experimental evidence) that humans are radically different from every other species of life on earth. Dr. Kagan refutes the ideas of evolutionary psychologists, including “infant determinism” (the idea that all human behavior is set by age 2) hedonism (the idea that all human behavior is motivated by a desire to maximize pleasure and minimize pain), and “abstractionism” (the idea that all human behavior is controlled by a limited set of laws or rules). He points out that men who committed terrible atrocities had loving parents during their childhood years and that “evolutionary arguments are used to cleanse greed, promiscuity, and abuse of stepchildren of moral taint.” Instead, Dr. Kagan shows that humans are a special creation, endowed with a spiritual nature, and motivated by a desire to maintain a feeling of virtue, which is unique among sentient animals. He points out that there are no non-human animal models for human pride, shame, and guilt. Humans also appreciate the difference between moral right and wrong. According to Dr. Kagan, “Not even the cleverest ape could be conditioned to be angry upon seeing one animal steal food from another.” According to a recent review of the book in Science, “The idea of the duality of human nature (of meaning over and above mechanism, or mind over and above mechanism, of angel over and above beast), and of the remarkable discontinuity of human nature from everything that came before, is alive and well for Kagan precisely because he has such a high regard for facts.”12

The Bible makes a startling claim about human nature and it makes that startling claim over and over again:

  • Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence.  God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth — Genesis 6:11-12
  • For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God — Romans 3:23
  • “When they sin against You (for there is no man who does not sin) and You are angry with them and deliver them to an enemy, so that they take them away captive to the land of the enemy, far off or near — 1 Kings 8:46
  • as it is written, “THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE — Romans 3:10
  • For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; And all of us wither like a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. — Isaiah 64:6
  • Indeed, there is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who never sins.  — Ecclesiastes 7:20

I could go on and on.  Interestingly, there are far more verses that point out that sin is universal to human nature and that we are all sinners than there are in the New Testament.  Look at these passages for yourselves.

There is a God.  That is why we are held to an objective moral standard which does not change the way secular – or should I now start calling it “sexular” – humanist liberal progressive pseudo-morality changes practically every damn day.  There simply is no such thing as “objective morality” to a liberal.  There are zero grounds for that.  “Morality” for them is an opinion poll, and usually from a doctored survey, at that. And so, no, there is nothing objectively morally wrong with rape or any other kind of sexual harassment with liberal progressives, according to their moral system.  And to whatever extent they even actually HAVE a “moral system,” they are so hypocritical and filled with so many perverted double-talking double standards that we are right to mock these self-righteous preening modern-day Pharisees for whatever “morality” they now claim to stand for.

There IS something called “sin,” and we are ALL guilty of it.  Some of us are more guilty than others, and yes, I truly do believe that there will be levels of reward in heaven and there will be levels of suffering in hell.  But there is something called “sin,” and sin is anything we think, say or do that is in violation with the character of God because:

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  — Genesis 1:27

And our holy, righteous Creator holds us each and every one accountable to the image of God, the Imago Dei, that He instilled every single human being with.

That is why we are ALL valuable as human beings, male and female, and it is why Democrats are murderers to the tune of 60 million babies which is tenfold more murderous than the Nazis in the Holocaust and counting.

The Bible tells us that “it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).  The Bible tells us that “God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7).  We’re told that God “will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:14).  On the last day, on Judgment Day, that every human being whether small or great will face, every act, every thought, every intent, every word will be revealed and will be judged.  And God will not allow even ONE sin, one sinner whose sins are detected, into His heaven.  Atheists and Secular humanist liberal progressives mock this and viciously attack the God of the Bible.  They call Him “judgmental,” which is a VERY JUDGMENTAL thing for them to do, especially given HE has the right to judge them as their Creator and they don’t have the right to judge HIM.  But the reality of heaven and the reality of the other destiny of hell are the basis for any true morality.  Why should I be good and not evil?  Why should I be good and not evil if I am powerful in this world and can get away with it?  One reason: because “you may be sure that your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23).

Let me contrast this with the teachings of Jesus.  Most people don’t know this, and the disinformation-hate-spewing dogma toward Christianity by the secular humanist liberal progressive “education system” will never tell you: but Jesus had FEMALE disciples.  Matthew chapter 28 and Luke chapter 24 records that the very first eyewitnesses to the Resurrected Jesus were WOMEN.  We have several of these women named in Luke 24:10: Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, as well as other women who followed Jesus.  What is interesting is that women were not allowed to testify in Jewish court during the time of Jesus, but Jesus allowed the honor that his very first witnesses be women.  Jesus TAUGHT women, which was UNHEARD Of for a Jewish rabbit during the time of Jesus.   The word for “disciple” is used in its feminine form to describe female Christians in Acts 9:36.  Jesus was a true revolutionary who restored to women the rights and freedoms they should have had as co-image-bearers of God (Gen 1:27).  The New Testament repeatedly warns Christians, most especially men, to avoid things like “fornication” and “adultery” that secular humanist liberal progressives openly mock and revile and ridicule.

Women do not need secular humanist progressive liberalism or the Democratic Party that champions that vile worldview: what women need is JESUS and the Christianity that truly seeks to follow their Lord and their Savior.

One of the things that liberalism gave us is rampant pornography and the pornification of our culture.  There are ALL KINDS of studies that document on this degraded and despicable act of Democratic Party liberalism upon our culture and upon the male mind.  Quote from a Harvard study:

The first way in which pornography undermines some males’ internal inhibitions against acting out their desires to rape is by objectifying women.

To whatever extent that “feminists” today are starting to turn on pornography as a demon that feeds male lust and reduces male inhibitions to carry out the desires they were taught watching degrading pornography, the same school of “feminism” was saying the EXACT opposite thing, claiming that “we have a right to our bodies!” and with the assistance of Democrat-appointed judges who professed abject moral stupidity in being unable to see a difference between porn and art they imposed this incredibly toxic, cancerous worldview and sexually-depraved view on our culture.  When Christians who wanted to follow the clear teachings of the Holy Bible pleaded with secular humanist liberal progressives, please don’t DO this awful thing!

Please understand, the Greek/New Testament word translated “fornication” that secular humanist progressive liberals and Democrats have mocked and ridiculed is “pornea.”  You’re not that dumb to not see where I’m clearly going, and where Christians went in the 1970s when morally depraved and morally stupid liberals declared it to be harmless and a right (even as they argued that the clear rights given to Americans in the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution are NOT rights!).  Liberal justices invented this “right” out of perverted ideology.  And it has toxified our culture.  And today the same Democrats who began the process of degrading and perverting our culture continue full-speed ahead as they ignore all legitimate biological science to similarly INVENT new sexual genders and orientations on a nearly daily basis now.  For the record, God created TWO and ONLY two: they are called “male and female.”

For the scientific record, that same legitimate biological science also tells us that when a male sperm cell and a female egg are joined together, they form a genetically unique human being that is therefore genetically different from the mother or the father.  It is NOT “your body.”  It is a separate and unique child’s body.  That zygote is a being by virtue of the fact that it is alive and it is human by virtue of its parents: IT IS A HUMAN BEING.  And any legitimate scientific analysis of the cells of that human being would reveal an organism that is rigorously scientifically classified in the following manner:

Kingdom-Animal
Phylum-chordata
Class-Mammalia
Order-Primate
Family-Hominid
Genus-Homo
Species-Sapiens

Just like you and me, pal.  A zygote is a human being in an embryonic stage as much as a teenager is a human being in an adolescent stage.  And any parent can tell you there is FAR more justifiable reason to kill the latter than there is the former.

Abortion, pornography, easy divorce all contributed to abort fatherhood in our culture.

Abortion is based on the premise that at the moment of conception – and literally even up to the very moment of delivery – that is NOT a baby in the womb; that is NOT a precious human being. It’s a thing inside a woman’s body and so it’s her property and so she can kill it. And so at the moment of conception, does a father father a child? No! Not if abortion is legitimate!!! He has merely contributed to an inanimate, nonsentient lump of goop and nothing more. And what is his “fatherhood” worth when the thing he conceived is a worthless thing that can be killed at a whim?

In Satan’s hatred for God and contempt for Fatherhood, fathers are NOT fathers and have NO right to their children. Given that fatherhood has been trivialized to nothing, given that fathers are now denied the most basic right to even the very life of their own children, given the destruction of what was once the sacred bond of marriage, the glue that kept fathers cemented to their families has been dissolved.

In our popular culture pumped out by Hollywood, men and particularly fathers are further reduced to useless imbeciles only good for mockery. Males and masculinity is pretty much blamed for every ill there is. Our leftist politicians and academics have pitted women against men and declared that men are responsible for every evil in the world. In the public schools we have seen secular humanism’s war against men warp into a war against boys. And these forces have combined to fundamentally distort and warp our very notion of what it even means to be a male, to be a man. While increasingly there IS no father at home to tell these children anything different: 39% of America’s children between first and twelfth grade live in homes without a father today.

Let me tell you something: Democrats LOVE the fact that they have warped our culture into one composed of single, unmarried women who live in homes without the father of their child/ren.  Because they have exploited these women their policies created such that 70% of single, unmarried women vote DEMOCRAT.

Understand something, single, unmarried woman: Democrats are sick, twisted, perverted, warped people who do not WANT you to be happy, do not WANT your children to grow up stable, do not WANT you to have a dream of living in your own home with your loving husband who is the father of your beautiful, well-adjusted children.  Because you would vote these DemocRats right out of office.  And that is simply a statistical fact.  The longer DEMOn-possessed-bureauCRATS can keep you down, women, the longer they can isolate you, keep you without a husband and a father to your kids, the longer they can keep you in grinding poverty, on welfare, desperate, without a true man to love you and keep you and stay beside you, the longer you will keep giving them what they want.

Anyway, the problem is something that secular humanist liberal progressives mock is spelled S-I-N.  And we are ALL sinners.  So let me get back to Roy Moore.  Yes, it is possible he did what the women accusers claim he did going back forty years ago.  Sin extends to all human beings.  Even Christians.  The Bible teaches that unbelievers have a sin nature and believers have two natures: the godly nature that comes from the Holy Spirit and the old human natures.  And we have to learn how to reign in our old sinful natures that remain with us.  And that includes our sexual “issues.”

We are sinners, and sinners need a Savior.  We need Jesus.  The Bible assures us that God created us in His image, and part of that image is eternity.  The Bible says that God set eternity in our hearts (Ecclesisates 3:11).  God created heaven and God created hell.  Both are real.  Our destiny is to be in one or the other.  And the thing is that God cannot allow any sin – ANY sin – into heaven or heaven, which is perfect, cannot be heaven.  And so everyone and everything that is allowed into heaven will be morally pure and perfect.

But the Bible says quite clearly that we are all sinners.  Which is quite a problem for us, one that we cannot solve or hope to solve on our own.  God created us and created us in HIS image.  And we are held accountable to that image.

But the Bible also teaches us that the very God who created us in His image assumed OUR image, added a human nature to His deity, and came to earth to represent sinful humanity.  And while we all sinned, Christ Jesus never sinned once in anything He ever thought, said or did.  He perfectly represented the sinless, pure righteousness of a holy Creator God.  And we can have our sins washed away by His blood because after living that perfect life on our behalf, representing me, He died to pay for my sins.  Because the wages of sin is death (Romans 3:23).  And so Jesus conquered the power of sin, and because He is God and death cannot hold God, Jesus rose again bodily from the dead.  And He conquered the power of sin and the power of death.  And therefore my eternal destiny is heaven because my sins do not exist when God looks at me through the perfect righteousness of Christ.

And when I believe that, when I believe that Christ died for my sins according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3), and that He rose again from the dead according to the Scriptures (1 Cor 15:4), and I declare that with my mouth in faith, something happens.  Yes, you can still sin, but now there is also a new nature implanted within you, a nature that unlike your sin nature does NOT want to sin, but to obey the Christ who placed that nature within you.  Jesus told us that the Holy Spirit within us convicts us of sin and righteousness and judgment (John 16:8-10).  Unlike the “righteousness” of secular humanist liberal progressives, this righteousness and sin and judgment are NOT based on constantly shifting human standards that mean nothing, but come from the character and nature and power of the Living Creator God who will one day hold every single human being who has ever been born to account.

And when I truly believe these things, when I truly have God’s Spirit living within me, there is simply something inside me that won’t let me do the things we see in our culture.

If there is no hell, there are no consequences for evil. And there is absolutely no reason not to allow evil to have free reign. The bottom line is this: all atheism requires is to believe there is no God and all agnosticism requires is to doubt God; in either case, there IS no moral system. There IS no moral disqualification to atheism or agnosticism. Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Chairman Mao, Pol Pot and the Kim dynasty in North Korea were and are all perfectly fulfilled atheists who murdered well over 100 million innocent human beings JUST IN PEACETIME ALONE.  One can be a perfectly consistent atheist or agnostic and be a complete moral monster in a way that is impossible to be a Christian claiming to truly follow Jesus and be a moral monster.  Because Jesus was righteous and calls upon His followers to be righteous.  Any and all “moral” rules these people come up with are first of all self-serving and hypocritical and second of all nothing but shifting sand that will change as the winds of political correctness blow. Which is why Bill Clinton was never guilty of rape even though he had credible accusers and numerous instances of sexual assault and sexual harassment even though there were numerous accusers, but today Roy Moore was pilloried as guilty merely because women said something and therefore had to be believed. Even Hillary Clinton has implicitly acknowledged that by the standard that she currently espouses, her husband and the man who still most represents the Democratic Party and Democrat values belongs in a prison cell doing hard time for his outrageous and depraved violence toward women.  Back then, Democrats claimed that all the women who said Bill assaulted them or worse should NOT be believed, and mocked them by claiming that they were trailer trash.

If you think all this crap that you are seeing going on all around you is wrong, then you turn to the antidote to sin: you turn to the only way out of sin, past sin, through sin.  You turn to Jesus.

Liberal progressives have now thoroughly proven that their way may seem right to them and even to a depraved culture, but in the end it is the way of death (Proverbs 14:12).  The Bible warns about them and their ways: they say what God declares is evil and what they declare is good, but they are in for a terrifying end (Isaiah 5:20).

That’s the bottom line.  And liberals are themselves proving that what the Word of God declared centuries ago remains as true today as when God first declared it.

Would It Be Okay To ‘Eradicate’ Every Homosexual And Transgender Baby By Killing Him Or Her In The Womb???

August 25, 2017

I did an unofficial survey with a number of my female friends who were mothers, and the poll came back with 100% of the respondents having the identical same opinion when I asked this question:

Would you rather give birth to a baby with Down Syndrome, or to a homosexual or transgender baby?

Every single mother I asked said she would rather give birth to a baby with Down Syndrome.

But guess what?  We now have – thanks to the hate of liberalism – the means to eradicate homosexuality and transgenderism:

Iceland isn’t ‘eradicating’ Down syndrome — it is killing every person who has it
By Susan Michelle-Hanson | August 16, 2017 , 06:41pm

A recent CBS News episode of “CBSN: On Assignment” has garnered some disturbing headlines this week with an episode entitled “The country where Down syndrome is disappearing.” The story reports on the nation of Iceland and the almost 100 percent abortion rate for preborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome. The CBS story took on a tragically ironic tone:

Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women — close to 100 percent — who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy… Using an ultrasound, blood test and the mother’s age, the test, called the Combination Test, determines whether the fetus will have a chromosome abnormality, the most common of which results in Down syndrome. Children born with this genetic disorder have distinctive facial issues and a range of developmental issues. Many people born with Down syndrome can live full, healthy lives, with an average lifespan of around 60 years.

Iceland, with a population of 330,000, sees only about two children a year born with Down syndrome, CBS reports, noting that in the United States, about 6,000 babies are born annually with Down syndrome. While some women choose not to receive genetic testing, since an Icelandic law requires women be informed of the availability of the testing (and a majority of women do test), it’s a widespread practice. So is aborting the child diagnosed with Down syndrome. In fact, one mother even admits to CBS News that she, indeed, aborted partly from the pressure she felt, because it seemed so many mothers were doing it.

CBS reports that four out of five mothers who receive a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome chose to abort their baby:

For expectant mother Bergthori Einarsdottir, who chose to have the test, knowing that most women did so helped steer her decision. “It was not pressure, but they told me that most women did it,” she said. “It did affect me maybe a little bit.”

The story explains that sometimes the reason two children per year with Down syndrome are born is because “sometimes after their parents received inaccurate test results.” And one hospital official who works in prenatal testing at the facility where approximately 70 percent of Icelandic babies are born adds: “Babies with Down syndrome are still being born in Iceland. Some of them were low risk in our screening test, so we didn’t find them in our screening.”

Making the birth of a baby with Down syndrome sound like a mistake due to bad testing is only one of many disturbing attitudes in the nation. The story reports how one mother who received incorrect test results launched herself into advocating for individuals with Down syndrome:

When Thordis Ingadottir was pregnant with her third child at the age of 40, she took the screening test. The results showed her chances of having a child with Down syndrome were very slim, odds of 1 in 1,600. However, the screening test is only 85 percent accurate. That year, 2009, three babies were born with Down syndrome in Iceland, including Ingadottir’s daughter Agusta, who is now 7…. Since the birth of her daughter, Ingadottir has become an activist for the rights of people with Down syndrome.

Another consideration of Iceland’s genetic testing is that if it’s only 85 percent accurate, how many children with Down syndrome diagnoses don’t actually have developmental issues? Iceland is certainly aborting some children it would deem “worthy” of living. But of course, every child should have a right to live, no matter what issues might exist. In a society that values life, this is not a difficult concept, but in Iceland the right to life is only a reality for some. And that’s why the backlash against the nation has been so vitriolic. When CBS News posted its initial tweet about the story, the replies were fast and furious:

Now I believe that homosexuality is NOT something one is “born with.”  It is a depraved condition that one generally succumbs to due to abuse or to psychological issues.  But the left that worships homosexuality on an alter of 60 million murdered babies believes that one is born gay.  And so this is a very legitimate question.

And I would simply like to receive the stamp of liberalism to begin the project of attempting to “eradicate” homosexuality the same way they cheer that they have “eradicated” Down Syndrome: by murdering every single person who has it.

Liberalism is evil.

In Nazi Germany, “Mercy Wagons” were sent out to collect and euthanize every child the regime believed to be defective.  This mindset ultimately culminated in the Holocaust were an entire ethnic group was deemed to fall under their slogan, “lebens unswerten leben”: “Life unworthy of life.”

In the leftist state of Washington along with six other liberal states, women may now kill their babies even AFTER those babies would be viable outside of the womb.  These post-viable abortions demonstrates that there is no longer any possible reasonable question that they are murdering a human being.  And since basically every liberal state DOES use taxpayer money to fund abortion, it is a sincere question to ask why Democrat taxpayers would not similarly fund the “eradication” of gay and transgender babies.”

If you are a Democrat, you will ultimately suffer ten times worse of an eternal destiny than those Nazis.  They murdered 6 million; so far you have murdered 60 million and counting.

How will liberals feel if we start “eradicating” gay and transgender babies when they so happily cheered the same policy being used to “treat” other children?

Liberals will of course retort that gay and transgender babies are valuable and should be allowed to live whereas Down Syndrome babies are worthless and should be eradicated.  But that is a specious and entirely subjective argument.  I happen to KNOW parents who would die to save the life of the Down Syndrome child God blessed them with.  There is a young man in my church whose hugs I welcome.  There is a special joy to this young man with Down Syndrome.  He helps me look at the world and consider it a very different way – a good way.  A way that is not cynical.  And it is simply a fact that either all human life is sacred or no human life is sacred for that reason: because if you are allowed to kill my sacred life, why should I not be able to do what you are doing and kill YOUR sacred life???  And it is because liberalism at its core essence fundamentally denies the sanctity of human life that the left has murdered well more than a hundred million human beings WHO HAD ALREADY BEEN BORN just in peacetime alone.  If you add the human victims of abortion, that number may be more than one billion human lives destroyed by the most evil worldview in the history of the human race: the liberal worldview.

The wickedness of the left is shocking.  God’s ultimate justice will be even MORE shocking when the wicked finally receive their eternal comeuppance.

When liberals are sentenced to scream in hell forever and ever and ever and ever, I don’t believe God will use His standard to judge them: I believe that He will use liberals’ own vile hypocrisy against them and sentence them to hell according to their own double standards whereby they constantly declare that it’s right for us to do what we would hate you if you did.

A Critical Review Of The Martin Scorsese-Shūsaku Endō Movie ‘Silence’ From A Biblical Christian Perspective

January 26, 2017
Spoiler alert.  My primary examination of this film relates to the final 15 minutes or so.  If you intend to see this film and prefer to be surprised, stop reading right here.  And please feel free to come back and read this article when you’ve seen it.
I believe that every Christian who happens to view this film needs to understand what is very profoundly wrong with it.
The first thing you need to understand is that the movie “Silence” is NOT a true story.  It is NOT based on any events that actually occurred apart from the general historical fact that the Japanese intensely persecuted and martyred tens of thousands of Christians in the 17th century.  There is no record of the priests named Ferreira (played by Liam Neeson) or Rodrigues and Garupe (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver).
The movie is based on a 1966 novel that emerges from the imagination of an author (Shusaku Endo).  It is NOT based on historical sources affirming the existence or the apostasy of priests either by the names of Ferreira and Rodrigues or by any other names.  For the record, I did not read the novel and after viewing the film have no intention to do so.
So the very first thing to realize is that you’re NOT watching something that actually happened; but rather things that an author and a film producer (Martin Scorsese) imagined to have happened.
The next thing to realize is that, from an artistic point of view, the movie was very well done.  It is beautifully filmed, wonderfully acted, and the story is intensely compelling.  Note, however, that I say that in the way that I would say that, from the same point of view, Leni Riefenstahl’s “Triumph of the Will,” which advanced Adolf Hitler as a Messiah figure in one of the great works of propaganda ever made, was also “very well done.”  As an example of that earlier propaganda film, “Triumph of the Will” begins masterfully from an artistic/propaganda perspective: Adolf Hitler’s airplane bringing Him to his people as he soars across the sky toward them, with the camera looking down at the ground below – and you see the shadow that looks like a cross.  And the visual message is inescapable: Adolf Hitler was sent by God to save his people; he is their messiah!  But it is a very different thing to be artistically beautiful and “true,” isn’t it?  I hope you can declare that with me.
That is how I ultimately view “Silence,” as a piece of propaganda that directly attacks Christian witness and the Christian spirit that is willing to suffer and even die for the sake of Jesus Christ (who suffered and died for us) and for the Gospel of the message of His cross.
A further thing you must understand is that it is simply impossible for me to divorce this film from our own current dark world, where more Christians are being persecuted and martyred than at any time in history.  In the Middle East, in Africa, frankly all over the world, Christians are suffering for their faith in Jesus Christ.  And why would there be no connection between Islamic State of today, for example, and the Japanese shogunates when in fact both tormenters had the identical same project and used the identical same vicious tactics?  The only possible difference is that the Japanese shogunate regime had a subtle plan to psychologically torture and subvert the priests, rather than merely solely relying on bloodbath tactics.
I submit to you that if you want to see a film about Jesus in which the hero/protagonist is Judas Iscariot, then this is the movie for you.  And I will support that claim later in this article.  But I offer here the fact that Rodrigues wonders repeatedly throughout the film what Jesus meant when He said to Judas who was about to betray Him, “What you are about to do, do quickly”  (John 13:27).  Rodrigues wondered how Jesus felt when He said this; was He angry?
The film begins with two priests (Rodrigues and Garupe) passionately arguing that they need to go to Japan to find out what happened to to a priest named Ferreira who had been their mentor and confessor.  Ferreira had been caught up in the persecution against Christians as the shogunate rulers who were attempting to unify the country and repel foreigners focused their attack against the Christianity they saw as foreign and therefore a malevolent influence on Japan’s sovereignty.  In eradicating Christianity, the Japanese regime believed it would eradicate foreign influence.  All the Catholic Church had from Ferreira was a letter detailing the horrifying persecutions that had been written years before and painstakingly smuggled to them.
Rodrigues and Garupe wanted to find Ferreira.  Or at least find out what had happened to him.  But the Church did not want them to go, informing the two priests that Ferreira had apostocized and betrayed his faith.
What is interesting – and became quite significant to me later as I watched the film – is that all the Church has to go on are unverified and unsubstantiated stories and rumors.  And the two priests passionately believed in the faith of Ferreira and demanded nothing less than certainty before allowing the true Christian faith of such a man to be denied.  This becomes important later as it exposes what  found to be a very hypocritical aspect to this film.
Against all advice, the two priests are determined to go, and go they do.  They are smuggled into Japan.  Their guide is a Japanese man named Kichijiro who at their first meeting is a drunk and a liar.  He denies being a Christian but the priests know that the fact that he speaks their language (which would have been Spanish), he must have been a Christian.  They travel to a remote landing site.  And there’s a terrifying moment as they are rowed to the shore as seemingly menacing hands reach out from the sea to grab them.  But these are Christians who are overjoyed that priests are finally among them again who literally swam out to meet them and couldn’t wait to touch these blessings from Christ.
None of the Japanese Christians has ever heard of Ferreira or knows what happened to him.  The priests are shocked at the horror of their suffering and awed by the glory of their incredible faith which has enabled them to endure even the unendurable.
The Japanese Christians at the first village they go to haven’t had a priest in years.  Which means – on the (deeply flawed in biblical terms) Catholic view, they had no Mass and no confession of sins.  They had endured by sheer faith and desperate allegiance to Christ.
The village of Christians are ultimate discovered as the “Inquisitor” comes to their village.  Rodrigues continues to another village where there are Christians while Garupe remains to minister to the first flock.  Kichijiro serves as Rodrigues’ guide.  And Rodrigues learns the story of Kichijiro: he had professed faith in Christ, but had aposticized (stepped on the face of Jesus and His apostles in a plaque detailing the Last Supper that is placed on the ground) even though the rest of his family refuses.  He fled, but had lingered to watch them all be burned alive.  He says the smell is still in his nostrils.
And can he be forgiven for his apostasy?  Rodrigues hears his confession and grants him absolution.  And ultimately it emerges in the film as he has to keep doing so, he does it mechanically, because its his job to hear confession and mouth the words of absolution.
But ultimately apostocizes again.  And again and again and again.  Oh, and betrays Rodrigues for a reward of 300 pieces of silver in the middle of all of his other apostasies.  Rodrigues comes to realize what a truly miserable and despicable wretch Kichijiro is.  Kichijiro has a habit of continuing to apostacize while other Christians remain firm to the death, and then come crawling back, only to keep betraying the faith over and over and over again.  Again, Rodrigues’ insight into Kichijiro’s loathsome character becomes significant to me as I continued watching the film.
Rodrigues is betrayed and delivered into the hands of the Inquistor – by Kichijiro, of course – and the Japanese authorities begin to work to undermine the priest so that he will apostacize.
The Japanese have learned that the best strategy to undermine the faith of the priests is not to torture them, but rather to torture their converts and declare that the priests are responsible for these poor people’s suffering and the can stop it at any time just by apostocizing and stepping on Jesus’ face.  So Rogrigues, kept alone in a cage, is treated quite well while the Japanese Christians suffer. Rodrigues is given only enough time with the Japanese Christians to feel responsible for them; not enough to encourage/exhort them to stand up for their faith in Christ.
This tactic does not initially seem to work.  But the Japanese authorities throw Rodrigues a shock surprise.  They lead a group of captured Christians toward where Rodrigues is being held – and at the head of the procession is his fellow priest Garupe.  Rodrigues’ interrogator informs him that they have told Garupe that Rodrigues had apostocized.  And then they proceed with their torture/execution: the bound Christians are inserted into a wicker sheeth (to weigh them down as the water saturates) and tossed into the water and held down with oars to complete their drowning.
Garupe sees this, and even though bound, rushes into the water to save the Christians.  He reaches one – a girl we got to know in the film named Monica – and tries to lift her up even as the Japanese use their oars to hold her down.  The oars never touch Garupe, but he will not let go of the girl and drowns with her.  While Rodrigues screams in anguish, knowing his heroic friend died believing he had apostacized.  It is ironic that the heroic Christian Garupe’s belief would ultimately later be proven to be true.  Because while we don’t know it at the moment, Rodrigues WOULD apostacize just as the Japanese told Garupe that he had done.
But that isn’t all the tricks the Japanese shogunates have.  They also have one more priest – and this is the one that is utterly devastating to Rodrigues.
It is the priest Ferreira.  And the unsubstantiated rumors the Church authorities had received were in fact true: Ferreira truly had apostacized and become a Buddhist monk and had been living with them for years.  And Ferreira had completely denied the faith that he had gone to Japan to instill in so many others.  He was a leader who had utterly betrayed his own conscience, his own teaching and all of his followers who had believed his message.
Ferreira’s attack on Christianity, on the faith of the Japanese Christians who had perished by the tens of thousands for their faith, and on Rodrigues is devastating where the efforts to undermine on the part of the shogunates had merely been anguishing.
Rodrigues claims that the Japanes word for “God” is the word for the sun.  He claims that the Japanese don’t even understand Christianity, that the faith that they are dying for is NOT the true Christian faith.
He argues – as the shogunate Inquisitor had argued – that Japan is a country and a race of people that is comparable to a swamp, where nothing grows.  And that true Christian faith is impossible to them.  The Inquisitor had declared this and Rodrigues had responded by first saying the words, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).  Which obviously included Japan and the Japanese unless Jesus, the gloriously risen Son of the Living God was profoundly mistaken.  Rodrigues had also pointed out the obvious fact that hundreds of thousands of Japanese had believed; and it wasn’t that Japanese couldn’t believe, but that the shogunates were poisoning the field.  That alone was preventing the spread of the Gospel.  And Rodrigues also pointed out that as a simple matter of logic, something cannot be “true” and “false” at the same time.  The “truth” HAD to be true in all cases and in all places.  As an example (this from me, not from Rodrigues in the film), can one reasonably argue that it is okay for one culture to torture and murder infants for fun but wrong for another one?  No!  A universal truth is universally true by its very nature.  All three of these points were simple statements of fact.
But the heretic and apostate priest Ferreira now claims that none of the Japanese had truly believed the Gospel.  The heretic priest knows BETTER than Jesus, the Christ whom he had betrayed.  The Japanese people were just worshiping the sun above them; no Japanese person was created in the image of God; they were merely animals (“swamp creatures”) who could not be saved.  And they were being slaughtered in vain, rather than for any legitimate faith.
I call that one an “unsubstantiated rumor.”  Because at no point in the film had there EVER been ANY reason to believe that the devout Christians who were tortured and died for their faith didn’t have “true faith.”  In fact, at many points in the film, Rodrigues acknowledges being AMAZED by their faith.
And so now I take this to the direct comparison I began above to the Islamic world: what is the Arabic word for “God”?  It is “ALLAH.”  And so what word do Arab Christians use to refer to the God of the Bible?  Allah.  Does the fact that Arabic Christians use the only word their language gives them for “God” mean that there can be no such thing as an Arabic Christian, because if nothing can grow in Japan, then surely we can see today that nothing can possibly grow in the Middle East???
This amounts to outright racist blasphemy and the denial of the Imago Dei that is innate in all humanity.  Jesus told us to preach the Gospel “to every creature.”  1 Timothy 2:3-4 declares, “This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”
For me, this is a place where the integrity of the film utterly breaks down.  Because what is previously affirmed is denied without reason or cause.  But nevertheless, the movie character Rodrigues has been undermined to believe the lie.
Then Ferreira rebukes Rodrigues, telling Rodrigues that he had continually compared himself and his suffering to Jesus – and that the Japanese Christians would NEVER do that.  I believe that this rebuke was valid, indeed: and I ask who do you believe is more right?  The Japanese Christians who suffered and died for their faith while refusing to compare themselves to Jesus, or the priests who betrayed that faith even as they pridefully compared themselves to their faith’s Ultimate Paradigm?  That is an incredibly telling dialogue, because it reveals the ultimate character flaw of both Ferreira and Rodrigues: they never lost their human pride, their vanity.
The Word of God declares, “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18).  But these priests – I submit according to their Jesuit training – were FILLED with pride and a haughty spirit.  Who was the Savior of the Japanese Christians?  And for the priests Ferreira and Rodrigues, the subconscious response would have been, “I am.”  But that isn’t true.  And as Rodrigues rightly pointed out in a previous dialogue, the Japanese Christians were NOT dying for him, but for Jesus and for their faith in the grace of the One who had suffered and died for them.
Ultimately, they cherished their vanity/pride above their faith in Jesus.
When you consider Catholic doctrine, it is too easy to see who easy it is for this to become internalized: who can perform the Mass?  ONLY a priest, because ONLY a priest has the magic power to miraculously transform the wafer and the wine into the actual, physical Body and Blood of Jesus.  There is ABSOLUTE NO PLACE in the Word of God where this twisted doctrine is taught.  It is an arrogant, prideful doctrine that creates arrogant, prideful priests.  And similarly, who alone can take confession, which is a necessary rite?  Any Christian, which the Bible declares?  1 Peter 2:5 declares that EVERY Christian believer is a living stone, being built into a spiritual house (temple) for a HOLY PRIESTHOOD through Jesus Christ.  1 Peter 2:9 declares that EVERY Christian belongs to “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that we may proclaim the excellence of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.”  Revelation echoes this theme, declaring that Christ has loved us and freed us from our sins by His blood and made us a kingdom of PRIESTS (Rev 1:6, see also Rev 5:10); and James 5:16 commands us to “confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.”  There is NO biblical New Testament doctrine whatsoever requiring ordained priests for this.  This is nothing more than an organization, a bureaucracy, seeking to impose its control for its own sake.  And what we end up with on the Jesuit view is an ordained priesthood that is ontologically superior.  There are Christians, who are nothing and have no spiritual powers; and there are the Catholic Übermensch (to put it in  Nietzschean terminology) who stand above the rest of us and possess powers that only they alone of all men can possess.  And they possess it not by their personal spirituality and piety, but rather by declarative fiat of their organization.
So, ultimately, “Silence” is a fictional piece set in a terribly real time describing the fictional story of what could have happened as the cunning shogunates undermined the Jesuit priests by constantly appealing to their pride, their arrogance, their vanity, which had been instilled in them by their own Jesuit doctrines.
Whose job was it to save the Japanese Christians?  Why, it was Rodrigues’ job, of course.  Not God’s.  And Rodrigues could only do his job by stepping on the face of Jesus.
This arrogance is NOT merely incipient in Jesuits, or Catholics; it is also incipient for all those liberal Christians whose “Gospel” message is a SOCIAL gospel of providing for material needs and avoiding the REAL need of people for Jesus.  Man’s ultimate dilemma isn’t sin resulting in spiritual death and ultimate hell, it’s something physical.  When Jesus declared Himself to be the Bread of Life, and that he who comes to Him would never hunger, and that he whe believes in Him would never thirst (John 6:35), He was very clearly contrasting Himself with the physical and focusing on the spiritual.  That same Jesus later said in the same Gospel, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.”
Because our physical lives are not the end-all; because death is not the end.  Because Jesus made a new Kingdom possible for us to inherit.  If we but have the faith to pursue it.
This message, “Abandon your faith, and you shall be saved” is utterly twisted.  But it is the ultimate message of this film.
At the last, the movie the very title of the movie “Silence” betrays its fundamental and inherent hypocrisy again: God wasn’t “silent”; He had merely waited to speak until the right moment just before the ultimate decision to betray Him.  Jesus had been “silent” all along until the very end when He speaks to Rodrigues just before the priest apostacizes and denies Jesus by stepping on His face.  Jesus says to Rodrigues, “Go ahead, step on My face.”  The way He had previously said the words to Judas that had been so mystifying to Rodrigues, “What you are about to do, do quickly.”
 
It is easy to understand, from a purely and merely human point of view, why the man or woman who is not truly a member of the Kingdom of heaven would be shocked and appalled by martydom.  All you have to do is one simple little thing, “a formality,” one of the Japanese shogunates had called it.  In the first century – while the New Testament was still being written – all Christians had to do to appease their Roman emperors was to burn incence to Caesar and declare, “Caesar is lord.”  And they would not do it and died by the hundreds of thousands for their faith.
Jesus said, “whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven” (Matthew 10:33).
That is the factual record of Christian martydom throughout history.  The Book of Hebrews in the greatest passage on faith, contrast the victory of faith with the suffering of faith and to the latter declares, “But others were tortured, refusing to turn from God in order to be set free. They placed their hope in a better life after the resurrection.  Some were jeered at, and their backs were cut open with whips. Others were chained in prisons.  Some died by stoning, some were sawed in half, and others were killed with the sword. Some went about wearing skins of sheep and goats, destitute and oppressed and mistreated.  They were too good for this world, wandering over deserts and mountains, hiding in caves and holes in the ground.  All these people earned a good reputation because of their faith, yet none of them received all that God had promised.  For God had something better in mind for us, so that they would not reach perfection without us” (Heb 11:35b-40).
I submit to you that, however imperfectly the Japanese Christian martyrs understood Christianity – primarily as a result of very imperfect Jesuit dogma – they were truly saved. There is NEVER any evidence offered to the contrary in the film apart from the word for God being the word for “the sun.”
But the twisted, warped, perverted message of this film is, “Step on the face of Jesus and deny Him.  That’s what our Lord who died for us likes.”  It is the message for people who purely live in this world, and whose reward is solely in this world, who offer that as “reasonable.”  This world is all we have; and so the “righteous” must cling to this world.
In my final words, I will try to answer the question, “Can a Christian who renounces his or her faith under duress still go to heaven?”  And I would submit to you yes.  For example Peter denied Jesus not once, not twice, but three times (a record that Kichijiro broke in this film).  And St. Peter was restored by Jesus.  Did that mean that denying Jesus was the right thing to do?  If you have ANY spiritual or even literary understanding whatsoever, you cannot possibly answer “yes” to that question.  Which is what makes this movie that is so well filmed and acted and narrated so ultimately irrational and so disappointing.
I submit that there are heroic Christians who STAND for their faith in the Jesus who suffered and died for them and they are REWARDED for their sacrifice in the place where they stored up their treasures – in heaven (called “Paradise” in the film by the Japanese who remembered what Jesus said to the thief on the cross who asked Jesus to remember Him in His Kingdom: “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:39).  But that there are and always have been Christians who are more fleshly and weak.  1 Corinthians 3:15 talks about such Christians and their works in these terms: “If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved–even though only as one escaping through the flames.”  Just as on a professional sports team you have your highly paid stars who by their talent and skill dominate the game; you have your more average workhorse players who fill their roles; and you have your benchwarmers who will never see gametime unless somebody gets hurt; so also you have great Christians who do great things and will receive great reward in heaven, you see more average Christians who serve as best as they are able, and you have your occasional pew fillers who do little else.  But then, on the spiritual side, there are also those who professed allegiance to Jesus but were never truly saved, who will one day stand before Him and point to their works (Matthew 7:22); and Jesus will say to them, “I never knew you. Away from Me, you evildoers!” (Matt 7:23).
Again, Jesus said, “whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven” (Matthew 10:33).  “Silence” actually twists disowning and denying Christ into a VIRTUE.  And you have to decide for yourselves who your source of authority and reality is: Jesus, the divine Son of God who was born and “came into the world to testify to the truth” (John 18:37), or a fictional account testified by heretical, apostate priests.
This movie is based on historical fiction and it is based on spiritual deception.  Our faith ought to be in our ultimate destination, and the reward that those who truly know Jesus will receive there.  It should not be on avoiding the consequences of living for that ultiamte destination by denying the One who saved us.
I watched the end of the film and how Rodrigues and Ferreira acted and lived in the aftermath of their apostasy with interest.  At one point, Ferreira uses the words “our Lord,” and Rodrigues catches him doing it.  And Ferreira merely denies it, saying, “I doubt [that I said] it.”  And therein is this secretive, gutless “faith” that we are left with – a hollow faith that neither produces anything or means anything” – in stark contrast to what first John the Baptist (Luke 3:9) and later Jesus proclaimed that “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire” (Matthew 7:19).
It’s virtually impossible to maintain that Ferreira and Rodrigues “produced good fruit” as they literally collaborated with the persecutors and torturers of Jesus Christ’s Body on earth and conspired with them to stamp out Christianity in Japan.  And just as Ferreira’s apostasy had destroyed Rodrigues, so also Rodrigues’ apostasy destroyed the Japanese Christian movement.  In the 2nd century – after a century of intense persecution during which the Christian church GREW – Tertullian summed it up this way, saying, “The Blood of martyrs is the seed of the Church.”  The meaning is clear: that the martyrs’ willing sacrifice of their lives leads to the conversion of others.  But what happens if the shepherds abandon and betray their flocks?
Jesus taught His disciples that “whoever wants to be My disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow Me” (Matthew 16:24).  And neither Ferreira or Rodrigues turned out to be Jesus’ disciples, denied themselves, took up their cross – (literally the instruments of their own death sentences) – or followed their Lord in His example.  Instead, they accepted His invitation to abandon Him, just as Judas Iscariot had accepted Jesus’ invitation to do what he was going to do quickly.
Ferreira says “our Lord” and then immediately takes it back.  Kichijiro is caught right after stepping on Jesus’ face for like the thousandth time with a Christian amulet around his neck that he tries to deny but is taken away presumably to his execution for possessing.  And only at his death – after a life of one denial of Jesus after another after another – we see in Rodrigues’ cold dead hands a little cross like one he had earlier formed for the Japanese to have some physical token of the faith they were suffering and dying for.  But Rodrigues would never suffer, and he would die of old age no different in outward appearance from every other Buddhist in Japan aside from his race.
Rodrigues, in particular, continued to live, but only as a hollow shell of a man.  There is no joy in apostasy.  And there ARE things worse than death.
The message that, “No matter how many times you deny Jesus and refuse to live for Him or take a stand for Him in any way, any shape or any form, you can still have it all” rings as hollow in the movie as it does according to what Jesus taught and what the remainder of the New Testament affirmed.
So the ultimate question is, what was the motivation behind this film?  And I submit that it was good intentions even as the road to hell is PAVED with “good intentions.”  As I wrote in my introductory remarks, I cannot believe this film emerged out of a vacuum.  Rather, it is apparent to me that Martin Scorsese very likely was justifiably appalled by the fact that Christians are without any question THE most persecuted and martyred group of people on earth today.  And something in him reacted to that awful reality.  But just because I am reacting to something awful doesn’t make my reactions good or noble – I may overreact and make a bad problem worse; I may react by imposing the wrong solution that only disheartens the oppressed and persecuted.
And it is certainly that latter course that Scorsese chooses.  He reacts as a secular humanist, for whom this world is all there is.  He cannot see the Kingdom of Heaven; he has no idea what happens on the other side of life.  And so he seeks to alleviate the immediate suffering by trying to impose his solution: just step on the face of Jesus and deny Him; just live a life identical to the rest of the world so no one can notice the salt and light of your Christian witness (but see Matthew 5:13-16).  And if a tiny little crucifix is inserted into your hands after you die of old age as others suffer and die in testimony to their Lord and to their faith in their Lord, surely that is enough.  And no, it’s not.  Scorsese’s is a dreadful solution that leads nowhere but spiritual death.
Even in Scorsese’s own narration, apostasy won’t do you any good.  According to the Japanese torturers, the Japanese Christians had ALREADY apostacized.  And yet it didn’t matter: they were still being tortured.  And the point is, if you’re going to be tortured and murdered and martyred anyway, WHY NOT AT LEAST STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE?  And just as the Japanese didn’t care whether Christians apostacized or not, does anyone today actually believe that Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) cares?  As far as they are concerned, people are “Christians” just because they happen to be U.S. Citizens; they will gleefully behead militant atheists for being “Christians.”  There is ultimately simply no reason not to follow your Lord, follow His example, and STAND.
Returning to the obvious parallel of Arab Christians suffering and dying in the bloodbath of whatever territory Islamic State controls, can you imagine how devastating and disheartening it would be for these heroic, persecuted Christians to be told by Western elitists that they are using the word “Allah” for “God” and therefore they as Arabs cannot comprehend God or Christianity and are merely dying like stupid animals rather than as Christian saints?  That is ultimately evil, not helpful.
The missionary movement to Japan produced over 400,000 Christians in the 17th century.  And yet today Japan is one of the LEAST Christian nations on the face of the earth.  And to whatever extent the movie “Silence” reveals any truth whatsoever, it would be that when Christians begin denying their faith – particularly when they are LED to deny their faith following the very example of their shepherds whom their Catholic theology taught them stands in the place of Christ Himself – it becomes easy to understand even within the logic of the film why Japanese soil was so spiritually poisoned.

 

Barack Obama Just Proved That The Democratic Party Is The Leading Party Of Satan On Earth In Shamefully Betraying Israel

December 29, 2016

“I will gather all the nations And bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there On behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; And they have divided up My land.” — The Word of the LORD as declared in Joel 3:2,12

“Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations. Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, go down; for the winepress is full, the vats overflow– for their wickedness is great.” Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. The sun and moon will grow dark, and the stars will diminish their brightness. The Lord also will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; the heavens and earth will shake; But the Lord will be a shelter for His people, and the strength of the children of Israel. “So you shall know that I am the Lord your God, dwelling in Zion My holy mountain. Then Jerusalem shall be holy, and no aliens shall ever pass through her again.”  (Joel 3:12-17)

‘A clamor has come to the end of the earth, Because the LORD has a controversy with the nations. He is entering into judgment with all flesh; As for the wicked, He has given them to the sword,’ declares the LORD. — Jeremiah 25:31

“For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.  Then the LORD will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle.” — Zechariah 14:2,3

At this point, I think it is beyond obvious: “all the nations” is prophetically speaking about the UNITED NATIONS that Barack Obama and John Kerry and their Democratic Party just used as a weapon against Israel.

Allow me to be crystal clear at the very outset: Israel – yes, Israel with its capital as Jerusalem – has a right to exist.  It is the United Nations that has no right to exist.  It is the Palestinian Authority and the terrorist organization Hamas that has no right to exist.  It is Barack Hussein Obama, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton who have no right to exist.

The Democratic Party – the party of the murder of sixty million of God’s innocent babies as clearly stated according to Psalm 139:13-16, the party of defiant moral perversion according to Romans 1:18-32, the party that deifies the godless State above the LORD in the mold of 1 Samuel 8:4-22 – is with crystal clarity the party of Lucifer in his rabid hate for God’s nation of Israel.

It is simply a FACT that the United States has veto power of all U.N. Security Council Resolutions as a Permanent Member.  And therefore, Barack Obama, John Kerry, and the Democratic Party are ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE for the hateful, anti-Semitic, poisonous stab in the back that directly laid ALL the blame for the lack of peace in the Middle East upon Israel; and it declared that Israel literally has no right whatsoever to “occupy” it’s own holiest city of Jerusalem.

The Washington Times described Obama’s dishonest and treasonous and demonic act of betrayal according to famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz:

Famous Harvard Law professor and attorney Alan Dershowitz is livid with President Obama for allegedly deceiving him in an Oval Office meeting.

The White House’s decision Friday to refuse to rebuke a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlement construction drew the ire of longtime Israel supporter Mr. Dershowitz, who told Fox News Monday that in a private meeting with the president prior to Election Day, Mr. Obama vowed to “have Israel’s back.”

The council approved the resolution with 14 votes after a U.S. abstention.

“He called me into the Oval Office before the election and he said to me, ‘Alan, I want your support. And I have to tell you, I will always have Israel’s back,’” Mr. Dershowitz said of the president. “I didn’t realize that what he meant was that he would have their back to stab them in the back.  He just stabbed them in the back.”

The lawyer said complicating such matters for a successor during a lame-duck period is the “most undemocratic thing a president can do.”

John Bolton pointed out more correctly that Obama didn’t merely stab Israel in the back; he stabbed them in the FRONT.

Israel claims that it has direct evidence that the United States under Obama and Kerry directly colluded and conspired to bring this stab in the back into fruition:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has long had a cool relationship with President Barack Obama, has called the resolution “shameful” and accused the U.S. of playing a leading role in its passage.
On Tuesday, his spokesman went even further.
“We have ironclad information that emanates from sources in the Arab world and that shows the Obama administration helped craft this resolution and pushed hard for its eventual passage,” David Keyes said.
“We’re not just going to be a punching bag and go quietly into the night as the Obama administration helps push such a grave resolution,” he said.
He did not identify the Arab sources or say how Israel obtained the information. Israel has close security ties with Egypt, an original sponsor of last week’s resolution. Under heavy Israeli pressure, Egypt delayed the resolution last week before other council members presented it for a vote a day later. Egypt ended up voting in favor of the measure.
Keyes claim mirrors that of his boss Netanyahu, who told his Cabinet on Sunday: “From the information that we have, we have no doubt that the Obama Administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated on the wording and demanded that it be passed.”

There is no point giving evidence to the administration that illegally and treasonously weaponized the Internal Revenue Service into the Internal Revenge Service and targeted conservatives and then refused to allow the evidence of their crime to emerge; there is no point giving evidence to the administration that illegally and treasonously allowed then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to build an illegal secret server and then helped her to conceal the evidences of her crime; there is no point giving evidence to the administration that actually – in proof of their gigantic hypocrisy given their outcry over Russia interfering in the U.S. elections – conspired with the political enemies of the Prime Minister of Israel in the Israeli election (see here and here).

If Russia did anything wrong, then Obama belongs in a prison cell.  Because he even MORE directly tried to interfere in the democratic election of a sovereign government.

Furthermore, if what Obama has now done – both with Israel and with Russia as Obama tries to impose sanctions on Putin for something that yes Obama YOU did WORSE – then every single Democrat in America just gave Donald Trump unilateral authority to do ANYTHING he damn well wants the day before a Democrat President takes office to poison the waters for the next Democrat.  And this is nothing more than one more of a billion evidences as to what stinking piles of hypocrite FILTH Democrats truly are.  Because every single morally sentient being on planet earth knows for a FACT how Democrats would howl if one of ours did to one of theirs what they are right now doing to us.

Russia RIGHTLY mocks Obama.  They have said of his pathetic and way-WAY-too-late posturing that his actions were “the death throes of political corpses,” and even better yet, calling the Obama administration “a group of embittered and dim-witted foreign policy losers.”  Both descriptions are ENTIRELY appropriate to Barack Obama, who has revealed himself to be the most petty and pathetic loser in American presidential history.  Under Obama’s failed presidency, his party lost MASSIVELY: a net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional and state legislative seats, governorships and the presidency.  Yet the fool vainly boasts that he would have won were the Constitution that he has proven for eight years he despises was not in place.  And as bad as Obama was for his political party, he was even WORSE for his nation’s standing in the world: under Obama, our military became a broken machine; our national credibility has been destroyed both in terms of the trust of our allies and in terms of the fear inspired in our enemies – Russia’s as well as China’s constant intimidation of Obama KNOWING he would do NOTHING is proof of that.  And under Obama, the world went mad as we suffered a beyond-staggering one-thousand, nine-hundred percent increase in deaths by terrorism since the disgraced fool assumed office in 2009.  Under Obama, the United States of America attacked Israel for building homes while more than half a MILLION human beings were butchered and as a direct result of Obama’s failure to LEAD untold millions are now refugees disrupting and destabilizing every nation on earth.

Any human being capable of possessing so much as a scintilla of wisdom would be humble had he failed as much as Obama has failed.  But Obama is a unique species of self-righteously arrogant pathological fool.  He is like the gambler who has already lost everything, but simply cannot stop himself from one more stupid attempt to win it all back.

Israel says it will wait until Obama’s stink is vacuumed and scrubbed out of the Oval Office before it brings its case proving his guilt in their betrayal at the United Nations.  There is no point giving evidence of the devil’s guilt to the devil.  Israel will wait for a president who doesn’t hate and despise their very existence and give the evidence of Obama’s and Kerry’s guilt to President Donald Trump.

What Obama did was to poison the water for ANY future peace between Israel and the Islamic nations that surround her like rabid, hungry wolves.

If any treaty actually was made, the Palestinians would merely renege on it just as they have already done with other treaties.

Consider the Oslo Accords that the Palestinians betrayed:

In August 1993, the delegations had reached an agreement, which was signed in secrecy by Peres while visiting Oslo. In the Letters of Mutual Recognition, the PLO acknowledged the State of Israel and pledged to reject violence, and Israel recognized the PLO as the representative of the Palestinian people and as partner in negotiations. Yasser Arafat was allowed to return to the Occupied Palestinian Territories. In 1995, the Oslo I Accord was followed by Oslo II. Neither promised Palestinian statehood.

It certainly also didn’t say anything about Israel retreating to a 1967 border.

Back in 2013, terrorist-emboldened Abbas said he was negotiating on the basis of pre-1967 lines.

And that is PRECISELY what Obama’s and John Kerry’s United Nation resolution does: demand Israel return to pre-1967 borders just before the Arabs attacked Israel with Egypt, Syria, Jordan and the Palestinian terrorist group the PLO trying to exterminate them.

John Kerry, laughably depicting himself as a “friend” of Israel, said:

On Wednesday, US Secretary of State John Kerry urged ‘Israel’ and Palestine to agree on two-state borders based on 1967 lines.

The only problem with pre-1967 lines is that they are utterly indefensible:

A return to those lines would leave Israel with a waistline just nine miles (15 kilometers) wide at its narrowest point, Jerusalem surrounded on three sides by Palestinian land and the country’s main international airport just a few miles (kilometers) away from the border. If hostilities break out, Israel’s largest cities could be vulnerable to rocket fire and other attacks.

There is NO NATION ON EARTH that would place itself in such a strategically exposed position.  And it is nothing less than an official act of hate for Obama and John Kerry to demand that Israel do what no nation on earth would ever be foolish enough to do.  Further, Israel has more right to the land it “occupies” than the United States has to the land that IT occupies.  Maybe after we’ve given all of the land we possess back to the Indians and to the Mexicans, we may have some right to scold Israel.  But not until then.

One of the things seized by Israel was the strategically critical Golan Heights.  Given what Syria has already done to more than half a million of their OWN people, just how morally evil do you have to be to demand Israel give this vital piece of defense to mass murderers who hate them with an ancient, rabid hatred beyond any reason???

We have already seen that every time Israel has given up an inch of territory, that territory was merely used as a point to launch rocket attacks against the citizens of Israel.  And to make it even more obscene, every single time Israel has been forced to respond to those massive rocket attacks against their civilian population – no matter how careful the Israelis were to avoid killing Palestinian women and children – they have been rabidly excoriated by a United Nations whose goal is to help the Arabs drive Israel into the Red Sea to their national extermination.

When Israel not only gave up settlements, but literally gave up the entire Gaza Strip to the Palestinians, what did they get in return?  They got the Palestinians electing a TERRORIST ORGANIZATION that is STILL listed as a terrorist organization by both the Hillary Clinton and John Kerry State Departments; they got an even MORE rabid determination to refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist and wipe her off the map; they got more attacks and more violence.

EVEN THE MOST LIBERAL JEWISH POLITICAL PARTIES REJECT THE 1967 BORDERS.  THIS IS FAR MORE THAN MERELY A NON-STARTER.  And the Israeli people massively oppose returning to those borders.

And yet thanks to a wicked Barack Obama, a wicked John Kerry, and a wicked and demon-possessed Democratic Party, what is a totally acceptable non-starter for Israel will be the basis for the Palestinians JUST FOR STARTERS.

In the business world, what Obama and Kerry did is known as a poison pill tactic.  And it was nothing short of an act of savage, demonic hatred for Obama and Kerry who turned their back on the murders of more than half a million human beings and turned their back on untold millions of refugees; but have the naked, evil hypocrisy to condemn Israel.

There now can NEVER be peace until the Antichrist comes in fulfillment of Daniel 9:27 and imposes a seven year covenant that the Book of Revelation describes as the horrifying “Tribulation.”  Israel will ultimately be DRIVEN to the Antichrist because the existence of Democrats means that the United States can NEVER be deemed trustworthy again.  America under any Democratic administration just officially became a Jew-hating entity that cannot be trusted.  Where will Israel turn?  Ultimately to the beast.

If that’s not evil enough, John Kerry also foolishly and wickedly said:

“Israel Can Either Be Jewish or Democratic — It Cannot Be Both.”

Yes, Obama, yes, Kerry: let the Arabs have a democratic election and vote on the question, “Should we murder all the Jews here and take all of their stuff for ourselves?”  And the result will be “Hell YES!”  THAT’S “democracy” to Barack Obama and John Kerry!!!

And we have already seen how Democrats react to “democracy” when the people vote for Trump – the answer being “poorly.”

I tell you what: name ONE Arab state, or ONE Islamic nation, where the Arab citizens have more rights and more freedoms than in ISRAEL, you pathologically morally-idiotic, demon-owned Democrat fools.  Because there isn’t one and there never was one and frankly there never WILL be one.

Name a time when a “nation of Palestine” every existed in the history of the human race.  Because it never HAS existed.

We live in an “asymmetric world,” with one side – including the State of Israel – abiding by civilized standards and the other side – including the Palestinian Authority and Hamas – that are pure savages that have no morality, no decency, no values other than the values of hatred and murder and extermination of those they hate who are different from them.

As I said, Hamas is STILL officially a “terrorist organization” even according to John Kerry’s own State Department.  But because to be a Democrat today is to be a pathological liar, Kerry wickedly refused to say that, instead claiming Hamas is merely a “militant group.”  Meanwhile, the so-called “good” side of the Palestinian government, the Palestinian Authority that used to be the terrorist Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) prior to whitewashing itself in the Oslo Accords the Arabs benefited from and then dishonestly unilaterally abandoned, pays a stipend to families of terrorists who murder Jews and even names streets after terrorists who kill Jews.  All the while teaching Palestinian children on state television how to hate and murder Jews.

And the Democratic Party is part of this act of satanic hate.

The time is coming when every single Democrat will 1) worship the beast and his false prophet and 2) scream in hell for all eternity for their wickedness and their crimes.

You just brought us massively closer to Armageddon, Democrats.  That’s what those verses I cited at the top describe in the Valley of Jehoshaphat.  YOU, PERSONALLY, Democrat, are responsible for all nations gathering against Israel because YOU are responsible for that wicked U.N. Resolution that your elected roach Obama and your appointed filth Kerry enabled.  And the day is coming when you will PAY for your crimes against life and against Israel and against your Creator.

Ten Reasons Why Everyone Who Is NOT A Fool Believes In The Reality Of A Creator God

December 27, 2016

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” — Psalm 14:1; 53:1

I came across something rather odd while I was hiking out in the desert a day or so ago.  And then I came upon another thing, and then another, and another.  I’ll post what I saw:

20161221_134531

20161221_150158

20161222_195859

So I came upon – one after another – what turns out to be ten objects remarkably shaped like hearts.

How did these hearts happen to come to be?

How did they “evolve”???  I only know that I neither made them, saw them made, or had anything to do with them other than I happened to see them in the desert, one after another.

Well, being a thoughtful man I thought about it.

Did they just happen by purely random natural evolutionary forces?  The wind and/or the water carried each component and just happened to deposit each piece without relocating the pieces that nature had already placed there until we had our “hearts”???

You can believe that.  And I can properly label you as a fool.

Of COURSE that didn’t happen.  Only a truly indoctrinated ideologue would ever believe an asinine story like that.  No, somebody – and I would guess the same somebody – made all ten of these hearts.  A MIND designed them and arranged the pieces just so according to a plan to bring about a purposeful result.

You can believe otherwise.  But you’re wrong.  And what’s more, you are a fool.  It doesn’t matter what your IQ is: you are a moral idiot who has committed your intellect to idiocy.  You have committed yourself to being wrong, and you have used every resource you have – your mind included – to justify your stupidity.  And you can have a dozen PhDs and you can have a buttload of money and you can have all sorts of prestigious titles and accolades and, yes, you can be a morally and therefore intellectual stupid person; a fool.

It may not have been a coincidence that whoever made ten hearts seems to have stopped at that number.

As I reflected on this “intelligent creative designer’s” work, I immediately thought of an analogy: the major systems of the human body.

It turns out that there are TEN such systems:

  1. Circulatory System: This system is made up of the heart, blood, blood vessels, and lymphatics. It is the body’s delivery system, concerned with circulating blood to deliver oxygen and nutrients to every part of the body.
  2. Digestive System: The purpose of the digestive system is to turn the food you eat into something useful for the body. When you eat, your body uses this system to digest food so your cells can use it to make energy. The organs involved in this system include the mouth, stomach, and intestines.
  3. Endocrine System: This system is made up of a collection of glands, including the pituitary and thyroid glands, as well as the ovaries and testes. It regulates, coordinates, and controls a number of body functions by secreting chemicals into the bloodstream. These secretions help control moods, growth and development, and metabolism.
  4. Integumentary System: This system consists of the skin, hair, nails, and sweat glands. Its main function is to act as a barrier to protect the body from the outside world. It also functions to retain body fluids, protect against disease, eliminate waste products, and regulate body temperature.
  5. Muscular System: This system is made up of muscle tissue that helps move the body and move materials through the body. Quite simply, muscles move you. Muscles are bundles of cells and fibers that work in a simple way: they tighten up and relax.
  6. Nervous System: The nervous system is the control center of the human body. It is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. It receives and interprets stimuli and transmits impulses to organs. Your brain uses the information it receives to coordinate all of your actions and reactions.
  7. Reproductive System: The human reproductive system ensures that humans are able to reproduce and survive as a species. It is made up of organs such as the uterus, penis, ovaries, and testes.
  8. Respiratory System: The primary function of the respiratory system is to supply the blood with oxygen in order for the blood to deliver oxygen to all parts of the body. The respiratory system does this through breathing. It consists of the nose, larynx, trachea, diaphragm, bronchi, and lungs.
  9. Skeletal System: The skeletal system provides the shape and form for our bodies in addition to supporting and protecting our bodies, allowing bodily movement, producing blood cells, and storing minerals. This system consists of bones, cartilage, and joints.
  10. Urinary System: The purpose of the urinary system is to filter out excess fluid and other substances from your bloodstream. Some fluid gets reabsorbed by your body but most gets expelled as urine. The organs found in this system are the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, and urethra.

Ten hearts.  Ten organ systems.  How fitting!!!

Now, it’s not merely ten systems versus ten systems.  We’ll get to the vastly – INFINITELY – more complicated nature of the ten organ systems of the human body shortly, but let’s consider the fact that, unlike the hearts, each of the ten organ systems of the human body must already be present all at once for the rest of the systems to function.

Again, you can be a good Darwinist and claim that the skeletal system somehow evolved with all 206 individual bones (which actually starts with 270 bones at birth, with some of the bones being programmed to fuse together as the child develops) just somehow “assembled themselves” the same way the fool would claim the individual components of the hearts somehow assembled themselves.  But to what telos?  To what end?  For what purpose?  A skeleton would be a pretty amazing feat for natural forces to assemble – FAR MORE SO than the pieces of any of those hearts! – but it’s not like it’s alive or anything.

As it turns out, you need EVERY SINGLE ONE OF ALL TEN OF THESE SYSTEMS ALL FUNCTIONING SIMULTANEOUSLY for the organism to live or do a damn thing.  Just imagine you had the other nine but couldn’t eliminate: you’d live a very short life and explode in a tremendously icky manner!  But don’t worry, all of your friends would explode the same way and the human species would be extinct.

I’m going to guess that whoever designed and built those hearts with the purpose and plan they had in their minds, they built one at a time and then moved on to the next one.  But that aint the way a living, breathing, eliminating organism works.  All ten systems had to be designed so that they were all perfectly functioning at the exact same moment.  Or nothing.

That fact screams God.  And only the worst, most pitiable kind of unrelenting FOOL doesn’t comprehend that fact because of a terrible and terrifying moral defect worse even than sociopathy in the heart of that fool.

Evolutionists are a particular species of fool who believe that time solves everything.  If you were to stare at a rock for a long enough period of time, why, that rock would eventually come alive, and then it would eventually sprout wings and begin to fly.  Then it would talk and mock the atheist for being deluded enough to believe in flying, talking rocks.  And of course, given enough time, another rock of the opposite gender would similarly arise.  And then it would only be a matter of time before the two flying rocks evolved near enough the same place and the same time over the potential span of billions of years and they would fine one another and reproduce and … and.. build a monument of rocks in the shape of a heart in the California desert so that I could eventually find them and ponder the meaning.

How about “not.”

Let’s examine the “time problem,” not just from the standpoint of all of those ten incredibly and yes, infinitely complex organ systems.  Let’s consider the problem of time just for the very simplest living cell:

The Time Problem

To go from a bacterium to people is less of a step than to go from a mixture of amino acids to a bacterium. — Lynn Margulis (21.5)

The only premise that all of the precellular theories share is that it would be an extremely long time before the first bacterial cells evolved. If precellular life somehow got going, it could then conceivably begin to crank out, by some precellular process, random strings of nucleotides and amino acids, trying to luck into a gene or a protein with advantages which would lead to bacterial life. There is no evidence in life today of anything that produces huge quantities of new, random strings of nucleotides or amino acids, some of which are advantageous. But if precellular life did that, it would need lots of time to create any useful genes or proteins. How long would it need? After making some helpful assumptions we can get the ratio of actual, useful proteins to all possible random proteins up to something like one in 10^500 (ten to the 500th power). So it would take, barring incredible luck, something like 10^500 trials to probably find one. Imagine that every cubic quarter-inch of ocean in the world contains ten billion precellular ribosomes. Imagine that each ribosome produces proteins at ten trials per minute (about the speed that a working ribosome in a bacterial cell manufactures proteins). Even then, it would take about 10^450 years to probably make one useful protein. But Earth was formed only about 4.6 x 10^9 years ago. The amount of time available for this hypothetical protein creation process was maybe a few hundred million or ~10^8 years. And now, to make a cell, we need not just one protein, but a minimum of several hundred.

So even if we allow precellular life, there is a problem getting from there to proteins, genes and cells. The random production of proteins does not succeed as an explanation. Other intermediate, unspecified stages must be imagined. We could call these stages post-precellular life. By whatever means, life’s evolution through these stages would have to be time-consuming.

Now, I wrote about this before (when I came upon a similar phenomenon out in the desert that prompted me to think).  And here’s what I just pointed out about the above SCIENTIFIC FACTS:

“Time-consuming.”  There’s a rather gigantic understatement for you.  Try to write that number down: 10^450 years, which is 10 with 450 zeroes after it.  That is a number that makes our national debt even after the Obama spendaholic presidency look so infinitesimal that any kid ought to easily be able to solve our national debt crisis with his lunch money by comparison.  And it makes the length of time since our universe exploded into being some 14 billion years ago (1.4×10^10 years) and the earth formed 4.6 billion (4.6×10^9) yeas ago look tiny and insignificant by comparison.

4.6 billion years ago might seem like a long time: 4.6 with nine zeros after it.  That is, unless you compare it to the number “1” followed by a MINIMUM of FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY freaking zeroes.  We’re not talking about billions, we’re not talking about trillions, we’re talking about a number so vast only a true mathematician has ever even HEARD of it before: a Novenquadragintacentillion, at least according to our dictionary of Big Ass Numbers.

And that 10^450  years is just for ONE protein when you need to multiply that 10^450 years by several hundred proteins.  That last sentence of the first paragraph is actually staggeringly optimistic, considering that in this case “several hundred” is actually SEVERAL THOUSAND:

“A typical bacterium requires more than 4,000 proteins for growth and reproduction.”

So understand the dilemma: you need random trials requiring 10^450  years to form just ONE protein; but you actually would need at least another 3,999 more proteins that will take just as long to randomly generate after you finally generate that first one.  Each one is going to take you about another 10^450  years’ worth of random trials to generate!  And finally after 10^450  a.k.a. a novenquadragintacentillion years multiplied by “more than 4,000 proteins,” just what are the odds that that first protein that you made would still exist so many trillions times trillions times trillions of years later???  Just what are the odds that you would have all 4,000-plus proteins available at one time and in one place to make the assembly of that simplest cell possible???

There’s just not enough time literally in the whole universe just to form a stupid bacterial cell, let along a human being with those ten amazing organ systems.  Do you get this blatantly obvious scientific fact???

How long did it take for the intelligent, creative designer to build each of those hearts?  Half an hour, maybe?  Maybe a little longer?  But without that intelligent, creative designer building those hearts out of the plan of an intelligent mind, those individual components of each of those hearts would have sat wherever they originally were for all eternity and nothing would have ever happened.

And you have to be a particular type of fool not to comprehend that.

Atheists/secular humanists/evolutionists tell us that time is their best friend in the world and that time can do ANYTHING.  Well, I’ve got news for you: time actually CAN’T DO ANYTHING: it just sits there, doing nothing except ticking moments away.  Anyone who has ever had a deadline and not intelligently worked on producing whatever was necessary to accomplish that deadline surely understands that time doesn’t solve anything.  In fact, the 2nd law of thermodynamics (popularly known as entropy) actually guarantees that, far from being the best friend, time is in actual scientific fact our worst enemy:

Entropy: lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder.

The more expansive definition of the law of entropy doesn’t make it any better.  Evolutionists are not only wrong; they are laughingstock wrong.  Because things DON’T become more ordered over time; they become more DISORDERED.  If you tell your kids, “Don’t worry, your room will clean itself,” you’re a perfect candidate for atheistic evolution.

So, scientifically – let’s NOT be fool enough to think that actual, legitimate SCIENCE actually in any way, shape or form supports godless evolution – there simply scientifically isn’t enough time in the universe for even the most simple possible cell to evolve.  And if you believe in the miraculous nature of time to achieve anything rather than accepting the legitimate science that says the opposite, well, the biblical term “fool” most certainly applies to you.

One other factoid to prove what FOOLS those who embrace godless evolution truly are: there are 100 TRILLION cells in the human body that are more complex than that simple bacterium that even all the time in the universe couldn’t produce.

And not only are there one hundred trillion cells in the human body, but it gets WORSE for you godless fools: because there are 200 different kinds of cells in the human body — in the brain, liver, bone, heart and many other structures — must somehow those 200 different kinds of cells must be read off a different set of the hereditary instructions written into the DNA.  Or else nothing happens.

Scientist Michael Behe describes what he labelled “irreducible complexity.”  He’s entirely right.  You must have the entire living system present all at once or nothing will happen.  His opponents are driven entirely by atheism and ideology that has perverted their “science.”

Some of the “greatest” evolutionary minds, such as Harvard professor Stephen Jay Gould, believe in something called “panspermia,” which is the recognition of the obvious REALITY that evolution is completely impossible and therefore punting to a belief that life was seeded here from “somewhere else” that is of course scientifically impossible to prove (or disprove).  This becomes an anti-scientific religious faith offered in the name of “science.”  But it is nothing short of “junk science” that the most brilliant so-called “scientists” acceptThe same way that Darwin’s “falsifiability” is a totally bogus joke that any but the most ardent propagandist ought to recognize:

Ann Coulter pointed it out with the false claim that evolution was “falsifiable” versus any religious claim which was not. Darwin said, “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down.”

And Ann Coulter brilliantly changed a couple of words to demonstrate what a load of crap that was: If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by God, my God theory would absolutely break down.”

In other words, evolution is no more “scientifically falsifiable” than even the most ardent young earth creationist claim. Their standard is impossible to disprove. I mean, you show me that God “could not possibly have” created the earth.

The whole way they sold evolution was a lie.

You go down the list of “human evolution proofs” that the entire “scientific community” swallowed much the way restaurant pond goldfish or koi that greedily swallow children’s lougies because they stupidly think it’s food: Piltdown Man.  Nebraska Man.  Peking Man.  Java Man.  Not only did all of these “fossil finds” turn out to be hoaxes, but they were entirely obvious hoaxes right from the get go.  But science had already become a philosophy, and an idiotic philosophy at that.  And so “scientists” not only accepted these “evidences” but embellished upon them, creating entire worlds out of their moral idiocy that were as false as the fake proofs of evolution upon which they depended in the first place.

The evolutionary “scientists” disallowed any theory of origin that could in ANY way, ANY shape or ANY form depend on a Creator God because they claimed it wasn’t “scientifically falsifiable” and therefore not a legitimate scientific theory.  But they have broken their own rule over and over again in their rabid determination to impose their philosophical atheism onto science.  Science that ONLY formed as a result of Christian premises that the universe was NOT random, but was ordered, and which came as a result of a Creator’s Mind, which in turn formed the mind of man in His own image; such that human beings could explore God’s creation and think His thoughts that He formed us to think AFTER HIM.

Let me continue.

There are 100 trillion cells in the human body and there are 200 different kinds of cells in the human body.  And those 200 different cells combining for a total of 100 trillion cells must all somehow precisely correct form at the precisely correct time according to an incredibly complex and complicated plan with virtually no room for error whatsoever.  Or nothing happens.

Further, we talk about DNA.  Well, DNA is an alphabet of three letters which combine to form “words,” not a language.  And even if it WAS a language it would STILL require an intelligent communicator to use words in the proper order at the proper time such as not to result in gibberish.  I know that for a fact because I’ve repeated what Google translated my English sentence into, and my Spanish-speaking friends started laughing.

I’ve described it as “the marching band argument.”  Let’s say you are part of a marching band, and you want to form the words, “Go Trojans!” on the playing field.  Do you just count on that to happen all by itself, do you?  Do you think if you just randomly have the individuals march around and form the letters all by themselves – especially if you don’t even tell them they’re supposed to form anything or tell them what letters they are supposed to form – that will somehow happen, do you?  If so, congratulations!  You ARE fool enough to believe in evolution, after all!  Rather, no!  There must be an intelligent designer issuing commands and sequences that the band members follow at the appropriate times.

It also turns out that DNA – even when the entire code is there and is correct in every way (which obviously to anyone with common sense doesn’t happen without an intelligent programmer) – needs a driver, the way a computer program needs a driver to install it.  Again, maybe you have DNA; so what?  How does it DO anything?  Something must be present to communicate the incredibly sophisticated instructions of the DNA to the incredibly sophisticated physical body so that the entire sequence installs correctly.  DNA demands a driver, and personally, I believe that driver is the soul of the organism.  God creates the soul in the womb at conception, and the soul drives the installation of what that body will become.  In a fallen, sin-tainted, imperfect, degraded world, that process doesn’t always unfold as it was designed to unfold, but something like this God-ordered and God-ordained system far more accurately describes the procedure of life than any other even comes close to.

Allow me to offer a theory from “science” to prove my case: recapitulation.  Because these people will believe ANYTHING rather than face the truth, according to Colossians 2:8; according to Romans 1:22; according to 2 Thessalonians 2:11.  Because they are ultimately fools, and it is the nature of the fool to believe lies and reject reality.

And so, continuing, just as the individual members of the marching band “install” themselves at a particular location at a particular moment even as all the other individual members of the band are swirling around him, and so on and so forth until the living letters are formed with all the individual band members having precisely arranged themselves to form those letters, so also the soul serves as the driver of the body around it, driving the DNA and unfolding the installation sequence at a marvelously precise symphony of order.  As the Scriptures say, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” (Psalm 139:14).

And the ONLY reason the so-called “scientific community” will not accept this is because it would then point out the godless EVIL of abortion.  The scientific method was formulated by a publicly confessing Christian in the heart of Christendom out of uniquely Christian presuppositions.  Every single major branch of science was discovered by publicly confessing Christians.  But just as every single Ivy-League university was formed out of evangelical Christian presuppositions but BETRAYED those values, so also modern “science” has betrayed the very noble system that it once was.

And so I look at those hearts that are composed from a tiny number of components by comparison, I look at the heart-shape they were arranged in BY AN INTELLIGENT DESIGNER; and I am not a fool.  And all I can do is fall on my knees and thank the Living God who created me in His image (and that’s a whole other issue that screams for the reality of God as a moral fact) that I am not a fool.

We talked about the ten systems of the human body.  We have not yet discussed the human mind.  Let’s examine the problem of mind from mindlessness:

“But it should be pointed out that consistent atheism, which represents itself to be the most rational and logical of all approaches to reality, is in actuality completely self defeating and incapable of logical defense. That is to say, if indeed all matter has combined by mere chance, unguided by any Higher Power of Transcendental Intelligence, then it necessarily follows that the molecules of the human brain are also the product of mere chance. In other words, we think the way we do simply because the atoms and molecules of our brain tissue happen to have combined in the way they have, totally without transcendental guidance or control. So then even the philosophies of men, their system of logic and all their approaches to reality are the result of mere fortuity. There is no absolute validity to any argument advanced by the atheist against the position of theism.

On the basis of his won presuppositions, the atheist completely cancels himself out, for on his own premises his arguments are without any absolute validity. By his own confession he thinks the way he does simply because the atoms in his brain happen to combine the way they do. If this is so, he cannot honestly say that his view is any more valid than the contrary view of his opponent. His basic postulates are self contradictory and self defeating; for when he asserts that there are no absolutes, he thereby is asserting a very dogmatic absolute. Nor can he logically disprove the existence of God without resorting to a logic that depends on the existence of God for its validity. Apart from such a transcendent guarantor of the validity of logic, any attempts at logic or argumentation are simply manifestations of the behavior of the collocation of molecules that make up the thinker’s brain.”  — Gleason Archer, Encyclopedia of Bible Difficulties, 1982, pp. 55-56

If you are an atheist, mindlessness is what you proudly assert that you came from – and mindlessness is what you ARE.  An orderly, rational mind – even MORE than those ten amazing organ systems in the human body – CANNOT be a disordered product of disorder, a random result of randomness.  And so if you are an atheist, you are not only a fool, you are a MINDLESS fool.  Because you stand on an altar of random, disorganized mindlessness and pronounce yourself brilliant.

The Book of Romans starts out this way:

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.  For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. — Romans 1:18-23

That last verse, verse 23, is especially interesting to me in this context, because it so directly applies to the atheist, the evolutionist.  The primitive peoples practice something called “ancestor worship.”  And why SHOULDN’T they worship their ancestors?  That is where they came from!  And what does the evolutionist claim he or she comes from?  From “birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.”  And so just as the modern-day man hordes money and buys things with it and by any theological standard worships these things as “idols” yet denies his idolatry, the evolutionist is an “ancestor worshiper” who denies his ancestor worship.  But it’s there, every bit as much as the primitive aboriginal, squatting in front of his hut in the mud.  And these fools actually call US “backward”!!!

We have not advanced as a species; we have degenerated and become worse and worse according to 2 Timothy 3:1-7.  According to the Book of Revelation which prophetically describes the depths of depravity that modern man is well on his way to degenerating into.  And the only things that have “improved” merely speak of our idolatrous nature and our determination to have “things” as part of our modern version of “the rat race” otherwise known as “keeping up with the Joneses.”

Now, I am an evangelical, fundamentalist Christian.  And I am such FOR A REASON.  And that reason is because the world conforms to the Word of the Creator God who clearly made it all.

Isaiah 40:8 states, “The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.”  But contrast that with evolution and the bait-and-switch pile of garbage that it is.  Think of how toxic cultures and societies twist and distort reality.  Think of Stalinism: the entire culture – science, academia media, you name it – was profoundly perverted into an instrument of deception and even terror.  Oh, yes, you can rightly believe this officially State Atheist regime taught Darwinism and evolution as part of THEIR indoctrination propaganda.  And the same thing is happening here.

I look at the world around me and recognize the profound reality of the formulation as expressed by theologian D.A. Carson:

“If God had perceived that our greatest need was economic, He would have sent an economist. If He had perceived that our greatest need was entertainment, He would have sent us a comedian or an artist. If God had perceived that our greatest need was political stability, He would have sent us a politician. If He had perceived that our greatest need was health, He would have sent us a doctor. But He perceived that our greatest need involved our sin, our alienation from him, our profound rebellion, our death; and He sent us a Savior. ”

And the basic fact is that all of these leaders of our culture that Carson’s quote finds lacking have directed their middle finger at God and screamed NO!  WE are the solutions to all the problems plaguing the world that we re-formed in OUR image!

I reject them and those who share their worldview.  And I embrace the God who fearfully and wonderfully formed me in His image; and who created me in His image so that one day, in the fullness of time, He could assume my image.  And live a perfect life in my place, representing me, representing all humanity.  And then, because He was God and death can’t hold God in the ground, rose again bodily from death as remarkably testified to by modern science to offer eternal life to any who would just believe in Him and follow Him.

Oh, yes, we went from easily disproving Richard Dawkins’ “Infinite Monkey Theorem” – that is easily falsifiable in its argument that a monkey randomly typing letters for an infinite period of time could reproduce the works of Shakespeare; to manufacturing an incredibly loaded and contrived “experiment” to prove lunacy really IS evolutionary reality, after all (that and the belief that there is no difference between a human-programmed virtual monkey which performs as programmed to perform VERSUS AN ACTUAL MONKEY); to deciding to banish Shakespeare from our universities (see also here and here to note that this is a widespread phenomenon on American college campuses) because apparently Stalin was right all along.  Because rabid intolerance is clearly our direction.

The Bible said this day would happen.  It told us the last days would happen.  They are happening today just as the God who declares the end from the beginning declared in His Word.  But the same fools who deny God to begin with refuse to accept plain reality.

God created the actual human heart, a heart capable of beating more than 100,000 times a day and more than 3 billion times as a machine the size of a fist pumps 3 supertankers (a million barrels!) worth of blood.  And I assure you that that was FAR more marvelous than the creator of the ten hearts the pictures of which I posted.

And I believe and declare that God is the LORD, and that His ways are superior to any scientist, or any rock star, or any movie actor, or any politician, or any other imposter offering himself or herself or any rival thing or idea in the place of God.  And I declare that His Word stands as true forever.  And I declare that in accordance with prophecies offered centuries in advance by a God who declares the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things which have not been done (Isaiah 46:10), God sent His Son to live and to die in my place for my sin, and to rise gloriously again so that I can be with my Creator forever and ever.  And that every rival to that truth is a lie from the devil and from hell.

All Lives Matter. But POLICE Lives Matter: In Fact Police Lives Matter Most Of All.

October 21, 2016

 

Last night I attended a “Glow Walk” to honor our police and take a damn stand against a depraved media liberal culture that routinely undermines and even demonizes them.

I put it this way to the chief who shook my hand and thanked me for coming: I pointed to the American flag over our heads – which was at half mast over the police station due to the assassination-murder of two police officers in an adjacent city – and I said, “I came because of THAT.”  Because every time I drive by and see that flag at half mast it makes me sick, it makes me seethe with rage, because I know what it represents.  We have to choose sides right now in this nation; and I’m choosing my side.  I’m choosing to side with law and order and justice and decency over murderous ideological vermin and the cultural elites who are supporting those vermin.

For the record, I have had several opportunities to spend time with my chief of police.  He is a truly wonderful man.  I have met his wife, and they are a loving, caring, dedicated couple.  He is a professional: if he were serving another city, he would serve that city to his utmost.  As it is, he is serving MY city.  And while I don’t get to see him work in the office as the chief, he never seems to miss an opportunity to be an ambassador for his department.  He is always affable, always listening, always caring.  And our crime rate has dropped dramatically in the time he has served.  We are lucky to have this man as our chief.  Period.

EVERY human life matters.

But ONLY people who are pro-life have any right whatsoever to say that.  Because ultimately either EVERY human life matters, or NO human life ultimately matters.  Because when you start parsing out human life, and arguing that this life matters, this one doesn’t: this human life is sacred because mommy wants her; but with this human life we can stick a tube in her head and suck her brains out and then crush her skull with forceps and pull her mutilated body out of what God intended to be the safest place for her on earth.  When we can do something like that, then NO LIFE MATTERS.  Because we ALL start from that same exact place in the womb.  And according to science – according to the branch of science which is specifically charged with classifying organisms into their proper categories – we never become more “human” than we are from the very moment of conception.

A zygote, in her mother’s womb, is:

homosapiens

I created that image just a few moments ago, under what I believe was divine inspiration.  Because the science on the left and the image of the baby in the womb on the right scream the identical same message: that baby in the womb is HUMAN.  A child in the womb is HUMAN by virtue of her parents; she is a BEING by virtue of the fact that she is a living thing: SHE IS A HUMAN BEING.

We are all equal as humans because we all have the same human nature which we had at the very first moment of conception.  And either human life matters because it’s human life or it doesn’t.  And if it doesn’t, then whoever is in power gets to start playing games with what ought to be sacred and sacrosanct.

Either that unborn baby’s life matters, regardless of her level of “intelligence” or “ability” or “accomplishment” or spatial location, or else there is nothing logically or morally preventing us from going the way of the Nazis, or the Stalinists, or the Maoists, or the Khmers rouges, or the North Koreans, etc. and just start killing by the millions, by the tens of millions, every single human being who fails to measure up to our a priori determination of what a valuable “human” is.

Senior citizens’ lives don’t matter: they are no longer producing, they are soaking up benefits that others could be putting to more productive use and to pay out those benefits undermines more viable “humans.”  Or black lives don’t matter: too many of these individuals are on welfare, producing nothing, only costing society, and now to make matters even worse they are creating societal unrest.  And so on.  Look at that damn cripple over there in that wheelchair.  What a waste of flesh!  Look at that dwarf!  It’s like a human head on a monkey body!  And therefore, “The members of these groups whose lives don’t matter should be euthanized in the most efficient and inexpensive process possible, so that more fit, more productive “humans” may live and flourish.  Which is the very heart of evil.

According to the so-called “science” of Darwinism, that is actually a FAR more scientifically valid argument than murdering healthy babies who have their entire lives before them and have unimaginable potential.  After all, who can demonstrate that we didn’t abort our next evolutionary link that would have made us better – and now our entire SPECIES will perish because we didn’t evolve when we needed to.  And all because we kept aborting our next step to evolutionary greatness…

It is an incredibly arbitrary, and murderous act to kill human beings merely because they have not yet reached the stage that they most certainly WOULD have reached had they merely not been killed yet.  Why don’t we kill five-year olds?  What good are THEY?  What do THEY produce?  I mean, hell, let’s wipe out the teenagers; they are FAR more trouble than they are worth according to most objective standards!!!

EVERY human life matters to anyone who truly believes the Bible, because the Bible declares in Genesis 1:26-27 that:

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”  God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

The Bible is crystal clear regarding the unborn and their precious humanity:

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.  Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous–how well I know it.  You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.  You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.  How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!  I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me! — Psalm 139:13-18

When it comes to humanity, any morally sane being would err on the side of humanity; which is to say that no one would EVER harm something that even MIGHT be an innocent human life unless they were either truly insane or genuinely evil.  So if you are a mother, and you have several children, and you hear your oldest daughter say, “Mommy, can I kill this?” from behind you while you are cutting up vegetables, YOU LOOK TO SEE WHAT SHE IS TALKING ABOUT.  Because she might be talking about her little sister.  And in the same way, anybody who says, “Well, who is to say WHEN “human life” begins, so let’s leave it up to anybody who wants to make their own choice one way or another,” is no morally different than the Islamic State caliphate allowing its adherents to decide whether Yazidis are “human” or not: and you go ahead and kill ’em as you want to if you don’t think they meet the standard.

It’s particularly easy for Bible-believing Christians – who were demonized by liberal media culture well before that culture began undermining and demonizing our police officers – to realize that Jesus loves EVERYONE regardless of their race or anything else that has nothing whatsoever to do with our fundamental humanity as His image-bearers:

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Red, brown, yellow
Black and white
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children
Of the world.
Jesus died for all the children
All the children of the world
Red, brown, yellow
Black and white
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus died for all the children
Of the world.
Jesus rose for all the children
All the children of the world
Red, brown, yellow
Black and white
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus rose for all the children
Of the world.

ALL LIVES MATTER.

I still recoil in SHOCK at the fact that the Democrat Party actually forced a candidate running for president – and the following statement destroyed that candidate’s chances of winning the nomination of the Democrat Party – to apologize because he made the “mistake” of saying that “ALL LIVES MATTER” to a group of liberals who demanded that only BLACK lives matter.  Those liberals can play all the damn pseudo-intellectual word-games they want; they can equivocate all they want; but the same Democrat Party that booed the statement that “all lives matter” is the same party that has systematically exterminated ten times more innocent human life than the Nazis did during the Holocaust.

EVERY human life is of what morally intelligent philosophers describe as “incommensurate value.”  There is no price, no amount of gold or gems or any other form of value, that can compensate for the life of a human being.

For the record, the death penalty itself – which is BIBLICAL – is itself a testimony of that above fact: if you murder another human being, there is literally NOTHING you can do or give that will compensate for the sheer magnitude of your moral crime.  YOU took a life – you STOLE a life – and YOUR life shall be taken in return.  The scales of justice will be BALANCED.  And that act of JUSTICE in recognition of the value and the magnitude of innocent human life will become an object lesson to us all.

All lives matter.  Even the lives of those who have been murdered, who have been expunged, who have been aborted.

But police lives matter MORE.

Why do I say that?

It is not that police lives are more valuable because police are somehow better “humans.”  That is not true.  Police officers are as “human” as the rest of us.  They too were zygotes, were embryos, were fetuses, were infants, were toddlers, were teenagers, and capable of making all the mistakes and errors that are prone to frail, imperfect, fallen humanity.

Police officers sweat.  Police officers feel fear.  Police officers have families and they want desperately to see their children grow up and grow old with their loved ones.

Police officers are human.  Nothing less.  Nothing more.

But a police officer wearing the badge, wearing the uniform, bearing the weapon that he or she is uniquely entitled to bear because that officer has been given the trust of a society to serve and to protect that society, becomes something even more special, even more sacred, to the flourishing of that society.

If I am murdered, it is a heinous crime.  Nothing on earth can purchase my life back, or properly compensate for the fact that I am now dead because someone made the decision to murder me.  And the person who murdered me ought to be hunted down by the police, placed on trial for his or her life by a court of law according to our laws, and imprisoned and ultimately executed after the proper appeals process determines that no grievous mistakes were made in the trial that would make that execution an act of injustice.

That is true of every single American: red, brown, yellow, black and white; male or female; young or old; disabled or abled; rich or poor.  Because all are precious in God’s sight.

But if a police officer is murdered in the line of duty, the statement I made above about the dignity and value of all human life is true, but there is something even beyond that: that officer’s murder represents an attack on our very system of justice itself, upon the society that has created that system of justice and ordains it, and literally an attack upon human civilization.

Police work has always been dangerous.  Officers pursuing fleeing suspects or attempting to apprehend dangerous criminals could very well use deadly force against the police.  But today we are seeing something radically different: we are witnessing ideologues assassinating police officers from complete ambush.

It’s literally like Vietnam where soldiers could never know who the enemy was or for that matter modern Iraq and Afghanistan where terrorists plant Improvised Explosive Devices to kill or maim without warning.

Police must therefore treat everyone like a potential assassin – which guarantees more shootings as terrified police with hair triggers try to stay alive knowing a target is on their back and they can be murdered for no reason other than they are police officers at any moment.  Which guarantees more shootings as frightened police see guns where otherwise they would have exercised more restraint.  Which then gives the ideologues more “justification” to kill more police.  Which the ideologues knowingly intend to create a vicious cycle.  And everyone who kills a police officer in the name of “Black Lives Matter” is in actuality guaranteeing that more black lives will be killed by terrified police.  And they actually WANT that!

Furthermore, the police – being “human” – will withdraw from communities that do not support them.  They will stay in their cars in the inner cities and innocent black people who could have been saved will die because the police are too frightened of being either killed or prosecuted for doing their jobs.  That too is part of the vicious cycle.

And this vicious cycle can only stop when society treats police with the respect they deserve and need to do their vital jobs.

As I said before, our police officers are human.  They are in a very nearly impossible job, trying to serve justice in situations that are so depraved, so confused, that it becomes impossible for any other being but God Himself to be able to know what to do.  Then you add in the next human factor of fear: that officer is in a situation in which his or her very life is at stake if he or she hesitates to pull that trigger at the right moment when the subject is about to take that officers’ life.  Did that officer shoot before he or she should have fired?  People come in after the fact who are themselves completely SAFE at that point and make that determination.  Which is why YES, it is REASONABLE to give that officer of the law the benefit of the doubt in complex situations.

The Bible, the Word of God, is crystal clear in this:

Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.  Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.  For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.  Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience’ sake.  — Romans 13:1-5

The police bear the sword of government for our own protection, for our own good.

That comes from the pen of St. Paul, who was beheaded by the unjust system of justice of the very government whom he was upholding.  Because under divine inspiration, St. Paul understood that, even in a wicked regime like ancient Rome, or modern-day North Korea or Iran, the police largely exist to ensure a stable, peaceful society.  God ordained them for that role.

For better or worse, this is the government we have, and if we are to change that government, or that system of justice, we are to do it PEACEABLY and through legitimate means.

And so yes, we all agree that there are times when an officer acts unjustly, when an officer acts in a depraved manner.  There are also times when JUDGES act in such unjust, depraved manner.  And there are times when the system that appoints those judges acts in an unjust, depraved manner.

By the very standards I have set above, when an officer, or a judge, or a politician, commits a violent act under the color of sacred authority, that officer should face even GREATER penalty.

But it is NOT up to ANY individual in ANY society to make that determination for himself or herself, that an officer of the law, that an officer charged with justice and peace for a society, should be killed.  Because that is the path toward anarchy and nihilism and the end of civilization.

All lives matter.  But no life matters more than the life of a police officer who is wearing the uniform and the badge and the weapon serving and protecting his or her community to the best of his or her ability.

And that is why I support and honor my police officers.

And anyone who claims otherwise is an agent bent upon the destruction of our society and everything it stands for.

As a military veteran, I urge veterans to see our police officers and introduce themselves and say, “Thank you for your service.”  Because police work is literally taking place in a war-zone, a modern-day battlefield, today in America.

 

 

 

Hillary’s Top Staff Demonizes Christians: God Damn America & The Antichrist Presidency

October 13, 2016

Imagine if Trump had used the phrase “needy Latinos” and the media got ahold of it.

But it was the Clinton team that did that.  So you have to search for that from anywhere BUT the mainstream media.

If you have any fear of God AT ALL, if you have any love for the United States of America AT ALL, you will NOT vote for Hillary Clinton.  And frankly you will suck it up and choose the lesser of the two evils that we have to choose from as our next president.

We had just found out about the savage, vicious hatred that Hillary Clinton’s entire inner circle have toward evangelical Christians and Catholics and even Hispanics:

[…]

In the exchange, Mr. Halpin mocks media mogul Rupert Murdoch for raising his children in the Catholic faith and said the most “powerful elements” in the conservative movement are all Catholic.

“It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy,” Mr. Halpin said.

“I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion. Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they become evangelicals,” Ms. Palmieri responded.

“Excellent point,” Mr. Halpin wrote back. “They can throw around ‘Thomistic’ thought and ‘subsidiarity’ and sound sophisticated because no one knows what the hell they’re talking about.”

The advocacy group CatholicVote.org called on the Clinton campaign to fire Ms. Palmieri.

Hillary Clinton has already called half of her opponents’ supporters ‘a basket of deplorables’ and ‘irredeemable,’ and now it comes out that her campaign spokeswoman dismissively question[ed] the sincerity of Catholic Americans’ faith,” said Brian Burch, the group’s president. “Had Palmieri spoken this way about other groups, she [would be] dismissed. Palmieri must resign immediately or be fired.”

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican who is Catholic, also blasted the Clinton campaign.

“If anything, these statements reveal the Clinton campaign’s hostile attitude toward people of faith in general,” Mr. Ryan said in a statement. “All Americans of faith should take a long, hard look at this and decide if these are the values we want to be represented in our next president. If Hillary Clinton continues to employ people with biased and bigoted views, it’s clear where her priorities are.”

[…]

Although Hispanics have been key to Mrs. Clinton’s voting coalition, they, too, were demeaned by Clinton campaign officials. In an August 2015 message to other Clinton aides with the subject line “Needy Latinos and 1 easy call,” Mr. Podesta lays out a strategy for getting former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, former Energy Secretary Federico Pena and other leading Hispanic Democrats on board with Mrs. Clinton’s presidential bid.

Mr. Podesta also referred to Mr. Richardson as “a d—k” but said it would be valuable to have him as a surrogate.

Perhaps least surprisingly, the emails prove once again that the Clinton campaign had little respect for Mr. Sanders‘ supporters. Messages show clear coordination between Clinton aides and supposedly neutral officials such as the Democratic National Committee, including Donna Brazile, now the interim chairwoman.

Party leaders also worked with the Clinton campaign to trick Sanders backers into believing they had won concessions from the Democratic establishment.

In a March 20 message, former party official Mark Alan Siegel is seen offering a plan to reduce the role of Democratic superdelegates in future elections. Although the proposal was sold to Sanders voters as an attempt to make the presidential nominating process more of a grass-roots endeavor, the email raises serious questions about whether the entire effort was just a smokescreen to assuage angry progressives.

“I’ve lived through many national conventions and have found that it’s critical that all delegates, especially those representing losing candidates, emerge from the convention feeling that they have won something, achieved something tangible,” Mr. Siegel wrote in the message to former Clinton chief of staff Tamera Luzzatto. “I think this is terribly important especially with people like Bernie’s sometimes self-righteous ideologues. We want them to go home happy and enthusiastic in working their asses off for Hillary.”

Mr. Siegel went on to explain that by reducing the role of superdelegates in the future, Sanders supporters could claim a victory that would have no impact on the Clinton campaign’s victory in this cycle.

“Here’s my idea. Bernie and his people have been bitching about super delegates and the huge percentage that have come out for Hillary. … Why not throw Bernie a bone and reduce the super delegates in the future” to only elected Democrats? he wrote. “So if we ‘give’ Bernie this in the Convention’s rules committee, his people will think they’ve ‘won’ something from the Party Establishment. And it functionally doesn’t make any difference anyway. They win. We don’t lose. Everyone is happy.”

The 716 voting superdelegates in the Democratic primary overwhelmingly supported Mrs. Clinton, drawing charges from Mr. Sanders and his backers that the entire process was unfair.

Had this kind of hate and bigotry been captured on the part of Donald Trump’s campaign toward ANYONE, the New York Times and the mainstream media would have been calling for his head on a pike.  But it’s leftist hate and bigotry and it’s Hillary Clinton’s campaign, so it’s all right.

Democrats disingenuously talk about “separation of church and state,” a phrase that is NOT in ANY of our governing documents and which they cite completely out of context in a dishonest and cynical maneuver to remove God from the public sphere.  But we see a rabid violation in the intent of the Clinton team to use the State to “fundamentally transform” the church:

A newly leaked email shows Hillary Clinton’s current campaign chairman John Podesta and a Left-wing activist casually discussing fomenting “revolution” in the Catholic Church.

“There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic Church,” Sandy Newman, president and founder of the progressive nonprofit Voices for Progress, writes to Podesta in an email titled “opening for a Catholic Spring? just musing.”

The emails were leaked in the third round of releases of Podesta’s emails by WikiLeaks.

Newman, who is Jewish, admits he does not know much about the Catholic Church and isn’t volunteering personally to subvert Catholic teachings. “Even if the idea isn’t crazy, I don’t qualify to be involved and I have not thought at all about how one would ‘plant the seeds of the revolution,’ or who would plant them.”

In response, Podesta assures Newman to rest easy for he and his progressive pals have already created organizations explicitly designed to infiltrate the Catholic Church with progressive ideology, though he cautions that the time may not be right for full revolution —just yet.

“We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this. But I think it lacks the leadership to do so now. Likewise Catholics United. Like most Spring movements, I think this one will have to be bottom up,” Podesta writes.

The conversation further reveals the contempt with which radical progressives view Catholics and the Catholic Church. On Monday, WikiLeaks published an email showing Democratic operatives mocking conservative Catholics.

WikiLeaks emails show reporter agreed to let Clinton campaign cut quotes before story ran

A scholar at the Left-wing Center for American Progress emailed Podesta in 2011 bashing then-Fox News CEO Roger Ailes for his Catholic Faith.

“It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith,” John Halpin wrote to Podesta, and Jennifer Palmieri, now the communications director of the Clinton campaign. “They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.”

Palmieri, agreed.

“I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion,” she wrote. “Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.”

These people know better than you.  They should rule over you.  If you oppose them, they should be able to crush you, crush your family, crush everything you believe is sacred, crush everything you teach to your children.

The fact that these people weren’t fired the day they WROTE these emails proves Hillary is rabidly anti-Christian, all her lies to the contrary.  But this story has been out for days now and all these wicked secular humanists who falsely claim to be “Catholic” or “Christian” are still in power.

Because they are with Hillary and Hillary is with them in the pursuit of the Antichrist.

Meanwhile basically the entire FBI and even the entire lower-level of the Justice Department wanted to put Hillary in prison.  But the corrupt, power-hungry powers-that-be wouldn’t have it:

The decision to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for mishandling classified information has roiled the FBI and Department of Justice, with one person closely involved in the year-long probe telling FoxNews.com that career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged.

The source, who spoke to FoxNews.com on the condition of anonymity, said FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic July 5 announcement that he would not recommend to the Attorney General’s office that the former secretary of state be charged left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case.

“No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute — it was a top-down decision,” said the source, whose identity and role in the case has been verified by FoxNews.com.

A high-ranking FBI official told Fox News that while it might not have been a unanimous decision, “It was unanimous that we all wanted her [Clinton’s] security clearance yanked.”

“It is safe to say the vast majority felt she should be prosecuted,” the senior FBI official told Fox News. “We were floored while listening to the FBI briefing because Comey laid it all out, and then said ‘but we are doing nothing,’ which made no sense to us.”

The FBI declined to comment directly, but instead referred Fox News to multiple public statements Comey has made in which he has thrown water on the idea that politics played a role in the agency’s decision not to recommend charges.

Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be in the White House; she should be in the Big House doing hard time, breaking big rocks into little rocks.  At least, she should do it for two minutes until her diseased body collapses.

These people have contempt – naked contempt and outright hate – for everything that most Americans stand for and believe in.  But none of the rules that apply to the rest of us apply to these people.  They can say or do anything and get away with it because a corrupt world system is joined to a corrupt world propaganda machine a.k.a. “the mainstream media” and the rest of us are led by the nose and duped by lies.

These people are transnational.  They don’t care about America.  They care only about world socialism and the power of their beloved State over you and your family and your lives.

It’s Star Wars, and the republic is about to hand over all power to the Dark Emperor.  Only it’s real life, and the Bible prophesied it 2,000 years ago and said we were heading for the Antichrist.

 

 

What REALLY Matters And How Should We Decide What Really Matters? Ask The Right Questions And Pursue The Answers With Passion!!!

September 30, 2016

How should you live your life?  What should you believe and why should you believe it?  What values should you cherish and why should you cherish them?  Is there a God, to give life meaning, or is it all just random and therefore ultimately all meaningless and purposeless and valueless?

Do you ever think about that?  You know, for longer than the commercial break at some point during your favorite television program?

So many people just never bother.

It’s kind of interesting, the question-the-Bible thing: there comes a point where someone OUGHT to have questions: giving your life to Someone Else is not an easy proposition. Even Jesus told us we need to count the cost. But there comes that point when you ask your questions and you have an open heart to an ANSWER and you have your greatest questions ANSWERED. And you decide to take your stand on what you believe, what you have come to believe is true based on your own investigation.

That’s exactly what I did.  I was raised in a Christian home, but when I was in the Army, my faith was eroded by the life I was living and then it was ultimately mangled. I got out of the Army spiritually broken. And I lived my life like a pagan for YEARS.

But the backslidden Christian is the most miserable person on the face of the earth, because on the one hand you can’t enjoy sin (because you’ve got the Holy Spirit in you constantly comparing your thoughts, words and actions to the Truth as you keep hearing a voice that says, “This is the way, walk in it“); and at the same time you aren’t living a pure, righteous life that honors God and cannot enjoy any of the benefits of the Christian life.  And so you are “double-minded, unstable in all your ways” (James 1:8); you are wavering between two opinions (1 Kings 18:21) – and you need to make up your mind and decide who or what you will follow.

I came to realize that the person who follows himself and his own path and his own way is a selfish, self-centered narcissist: let’s talk about me for a while. And let’s KEEP talking about me; in fact let’s ALWAYS talk about me and NOTHING BUT me, because that is ultimately all that is important in this universe.   Is that seriously all there is to life?  Is there nothing more?  Is there nothing beyond me that is more important than me that ought to shape who I am and who and what I become?  And I came to a point where I needed to live for something beyond me, something greater than me. Something I could marvel at.

Another thing that came to me was a simple question: if there is no God, if the evolution that I always hear about is true, then what is right and wrong, and who decides? Another way to put it is, “How can you be a bad atheist?” Now, the ONLY way you can be a “bad atheist” is to believe in God; there ARE no moral requirements to being an atheist and no possibility for any moral requirement. You are nothing but the product of your DNA and your experiences that were outside of your control; more, you think whatever the hell you think merely because the atoms in your brain randomly happened to arrange themselves however the hell they arranged themselves.

I want you to understand very clearly where I am going here: I am making the point that when you consider the Bible, or Christianity, or religion, you are NOT doing so in a vacuum.  No, you are considering one alternative from the rest of the alternatives.  And so if religion is wrong, then embrace the alternative and embrace its consequences.  And understand what those consequences are.

There IS no “right” or “wrong.”  Not if Darwinian evolution has any credibility.  And it turns out the consequences of that alternative truly matters.

Now, SOMEBODY – you know, like Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama or somebody like that – manufactured some rules for the entire herd to follow.  And the herd has to follow these rules.  And if you don’t follow the rules of the herd, you don’t get to be in the herd.  Or at least the herd frowns on you and says you aren’t a very good herd member.  But there are HERD animals and there are PREDATOR animals that HUNT and KILL and EAT the herd animals and do so without any shame or regret or guilt whatsoever.  And you can alter or edit or change this morality willy-nilly, it turns out – such as when Obama was opposed to gay marriage but then was suddenly for what he’d been against – his contortions are actually even worse than that – but now it is incumbent upon all humanity to get in line with Obama or else be deemed “intolerant” and “bigoted” and “hateful.”

Because whatever is deemed “politically correct” is whatever the hell somebody else says it is until it isn’t that any more.

Now, I reject Obama and his bullcrap-bogus-pseudo morality and I reject political correctness and there had BETTER be some better reason why I ought to be “moral” – whatever the hell “morality” even is – or else in the words of that song, “Let the bodies hit the floor…”

And let it be YOUR body, or the body of your wife or your kid.  Because nobody and nothing matters.  This whole universe is nothing more than something that accidentally exploded into existence and will ultimately be swallowed up by the same meaningless process of nihilism that spat it out in the first place.

Me personally, I’ve always most identified with the predatory animals. Ask me what all my favorite animals are and you won’t hear me telling you, “Well, I like sheep and cows…” Nope. I favor the wolves and the lions that chase down and kill and eat their fill and are content and happy with a lifestyle that really kills the buzz of those helpless herd animals.

So start running, herd animals.  Because we’re hot on your heels and we mean to chase you down and drag you down and end you and your morally idiotic evolution only justifies our doing it to you.

Rape.  Burn.  Slaughter.  Loot.  It matters not.  For the madman who rips out your still beating heart with his bare fingernails is no morally different than the firemen who went up the stairs to their deaths during the hell of 9/11 when everybody else was fleeing as fast as they could.

I recall the line from the movie Alien:

Ash: You still don’t understand what you’re dealing with, do you? Perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility.

Lambert: You admire it.

Ash: I admire its purity. A survivor… unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality.

Why not be that way? Be pure, be a survivor, unclouded by bogus conscience, remorse, delusions of morality that have nothing to do with the real essence of human existence if evolution has any validity whatsoever.

Dylan Klebold, one of the infamous Columbine killers, wrote in his journal that he and his accomplice Eric Harris were “god-like” and more highly evolved than every other human being. I remember hearing one of their quotes: “We are no longer human, for we have evolved beyond human morality.”

They wrote in their journals (and pardon the language but it is theirs and not mine): “Why give a fuck what Jesus would do?” And, “I blew off his head with one shot. I am god. He died.”

And why, indeed?  I mean, other than the fact that WWJD is a much better acronym than WGAFWJWD.

And I demand the evolutionist give me a detailed scientific answer based on a chemical analysis of our damn brain cells that definitively proves that we should not all go thou and do likewise.

Show me how the sociopath is NOT the most evolved life form.

And evolution is a farce, or you prove they HADN’T evolved beyond human morality. Because evolution teaches me why I should murder and rape and steal to get whatever I want; and it does NOT teach me why I should love or cherish or give my what is mine for the good of someone who doesn’t even share my DNA.

I could on that simple evolutionary level be very content being a serial killer, a serial rapist, tracking down, stalking and HUNTING my human prey and satiating my own lusts, my own desires, doing my own thing my own way. If I want something, I ought to steal it. I have a lust for someone, I ought to kidnap and rape. If I don’t like somebody, I ought to hunt down and kill that somebody.

I can show you scholarly articles from evolutionists talking about rape as a simple adaptation to the requirements of natural selection and the survival of the fittest. Because evolution is all about spreading your DNA to the next generation – THAT’S WHAT MAKES YOU “THE FITTEST” BABY – and evolution doesn’t have any stipulations on how to do that. If it works, do it.

Last night I discovered and called in a bunch of stolen copper wire that somebody had stripped and sold. Why not?

At some point, I realized that if evolution were actually true, if there is no God who holds me accountable for my works, then anything is equally permissible. Not only is the torture-rapist-murderer no morally different from the Mother Teresa, but in fact the former is actually SUPERIOR to the latter; because the torture-rapist-murderer GOT IT and grasped the essence and the sheer absurdity of human existence and Mother Teresa was a stupid fool who made the wrong bet stupidly thinking there was some God at the end of the picture when there wasn’t. And now both people get the same dirt nap, only one of them lived their lives realizing all along that they would get that same dirt nap and lived their life consistently by that plan in a completely self-centered manner.

The sociopath is the true moral hero of Darwinism. Go thou and do likewise.

I always laugh when I hear the secular humanist and the atheist claim that religion is intolerance and mass murder.  Because they are the worst kind of ignorant fools and because the simple fact of the matter is that State Atheism has been responsible for the brutal murder of one hundred million just of their OWN people and JUST during PEACETIME alone.  Hey, you go ahead and add up the Crusades and the Inquisition and the witch burnings – which were all actually all more secular than truly coming from the Church, but that’s an argument for another day – and whatever you want – and you won’t even scratch the surface of what Mao and Stalin and Pol Pot and the Kims in North Korea did in their official state atheism.  And you can really and truly rack up a giant death toll when you add in the fact that according to the members of Adolf Hitler’s inner circle, he was a self-revealed atheist as well – and he started World War II and bears the guilt of the 60 million casualties from that war.  Then add to that terrible death toll another sixty million murdered innocent human beings just in the United States alone at the hands of secular humanists in their abortion mills.  And don’t even TRY to imagine what would happen if the secular humanists truly took power, because they would deliberately wipe out the vast majority of humanity in order to achieve their insane and evil environmentalist goals.

Jesus actually taught Christians to put away their swords, to turn the other cheek, to live in peace.  Because His Way was the anathema of the Way of evolution and natural selection and survival of the fittest.

And so, confronted with a very stark choice, something in me with every fiber of my being said NO this crap that I’ve been force-fed is NOT the TRUTH. There IS a way that we should live, a right way and a WRONG way. And each must have CONSEQUENCES. And if that ISN’T so, then don’t you DARE look down and judge the torture-murder-rapist who enjoys his “work” with that screaming woman or that terrorized little child.  Because he is only doing what is in him to do. If it feels good, do it, right?  Just like the homosexuals and the abortionists and the dope users say to justify their “choices” that fly in the face of everything every culture before them previously ever believed.   There is no more wrong with what they do than what the heyena does when they chase an exhausted animal down and start literally eating it alive.  And who the hell are YOU who DON’T have that person’s DNA and DIDN’T live his life and have his however-twisted experiences to judge that person???

Because either God created me in His divine image or I am no different from all the other animals that are the same mindless product of the exact same mindless evolution.  Human beings are either the one or they are the other.  Period.

Now, I want you to realize that this wasn’t just an intellectual game for me: I got out of the Army a trained killer, a highly trained expert stalker of human beings, a soldier thoroughly trained to deploy weapons specifically engineered to exterminate human beings like bugs – and more than a little bit bitter besides – and I was at that point where I could have gone either way.  And why NOT go to the dark side unless there was a genuine, profound difference between the two sides???

Unless there is a God who truly stands above ALL of us as our Creator and has the RIGHT to make the rules for ALL of us and hold ALL of us accountable to His rules that emerge from HIS character and nature and purpose for creating us in the first place.  And I was accountable to that Creator and no eternal dirt nap: the choice is either everlasting heavenly reward or everlasting hellish suffering.  And you get to choose which.

I mean, just so you know, I was trained by my own government how to kill my fellow genus homo and species sapiens with my bare hands, with a knife, with the bayonet, with pistols, with rifles, with machine guns, with hand grenades, with grenade launchers, with mortars, with rocket launchers, with the M47 Dragon, and even with the M220 Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided missle system.  Not that I have most of those things now.  And I was trained how to parachute out of a perfectly good airplane so I could – on command – kill my fellow human beings like bugs within 18 hours notice anywhere on planet earth.  The question whether I would kill other human beings wasn’t an “academic” one; if and when I was activated, I would accomplish my mission that I was trained and indoctrinated to accomplish.  And by “indoctrinated,” I mean mentally and morally conditioned to sight in on an enemy and gently squeeze the trigger.  So I can state categorically that I was a trained killer; the lion and the wolf have nothing on me.

You have likely heard that slogan, “There are no atheists in foxholes.”  I’m sure that’s not an absolute statement, but it does underscore a very valid point: soldiers are people who for the most part need to believe in absolutes and objective values and transcendence in order to function.  And that’s because, for example, we have to deal with the reality that there is indeed an “absolute” difference between being alive and being a screaming, dismembered, disemboweled pile of bloody, quivering guts.  We believe in objective values because we need to believe that we’re living and dying for some kind of ultimately meaningful purpose; we need to know our sacrifice ultimately means something.  And we tend to believe in transcendence because we are people who may have to go through that moment of knowledge that in a very short time we are going to be in a battle and we may not live through it and we want to be in heaven.  And those three reasons are why there aren’t very many atheists in foxholes.

And so it was on that background that I began my investigation as to whether or not I should believe in God and what God I should believe in if there IS a God.  And also consider the consequences if there is NOT a God.

I mean, how ought a US-government trained super-predator live?

Now, the people who lived half-ass lives, who are afraid one the one hand to be what the Obama’s and the Clinton’s who make up all the politically correct rules for society call “intolerant” or whatever, but who at the same time don’t with any passion follow God or His ways, I GOT NO TIME FOR THEM.

Maybe that disgust at those who won’t get off the fence comes from my experience serving on a team where it was “us” and “them” – and “they” were trying to kill “us” and if “us” had any desire to live whatsoever we better kill “them” first.  That’s certainly one very good way to get at the essence of how black-and-white reality truly is.

Get on one side or get on the other side, choose this day whom you will serve (Joshua 24:15). The person sitting on the middle of the teeter totter of life is totally useless. And the people who just can’t sit themselves on the ends just muck up the whole operation of the teeter totter of life.

And that’s exactly the way God designed the world: there is heaven on the one side and there is hell on the other. There isn’t any “middle place” where the useless people who never had the balls to make up their damn useless minds go.

Jesus says that there are the sheep (the righteous) and there are the goats (the wicked). He says He will divide them into two and ONLY two groups, and He will say to one, “Enter into the joy of your Master,” while to the other He will say, “Depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness. I never knew you.”

Jesus says in the Book of Revelation, “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked.” — Revelation 3:15-17.

And yes. That’s the way it works in God’s universe.  And to quote J. Vernon McGee, “you might have a better plan than God, but what you DON’T have is your own universe.”

God wants PASSION in His pursuers. He frankly wants us to follow Him with all our heart and all our soul and all our strength and all our mind (Luke 10:27) or else hey, please don’t bother.

And so it was with that big picture – one way or the other, the light side or the dark side – that I began to investigate whether there is a God and which God I should follow if there is.

I actually gave the Darwinists their first shot. I mean, if they could prove their case, then why bother looking at useless religions that talked about fairy-tale gods???

And so I read the hot-off-the-press at-that-time atheist work, “The Blind Watchmaker,” from cover to cover.

Right off the bat, I came across this memorable quote from Dawkins:

Biology is the study of complicated things that give the appearance of having been designed for a purpose. — The Blind Watchmaker (1996) p.1

And Dawkins also said in The Blind Watchmaker:

“Animals give the appearance of having been designed by a theoretically sophisticated and practically ingenious physicist or engineer…” — (p. 36)

Okay, so I’m hearing the man CONCEDE the major point that HIS SIDE has the BURDEN OF PROOF because he concedes that prima facie – on its face to be accepted as correct until proven otherwise – admission that it DOES in FACT appear self-evident that things were DESIGNED by a creator with a purpose. Just as St. Paul confirmed to believers in Romans chapter one.

And I have two arms with opposable thumbs so that I can open the stupid fridge with my right hand and take out the gallon of milk or the six pack of beer with my left hand. Design and purpose, kids.  As in design WITH a purpose.

So Dawkins told us from the outset that the burden of proof was on his side to PROVE beyond any shadow of a doubt whatsoever that there is no Creator God and can be no Creator God. But as I read, do you know what I increasingly began to observe? That this man was an appalling moral idiot, and that what truly set him apart was the gargantuan arrogance of a genuine fool.

I found it interesting to learn that Richard Dawkins was not opposed to the idea of an “intelligent designer.”  Unless that intelligent designer turned out to be God.  Because ultimately the man is a anti-religious bigot and an intellectual hypocrite rather than any kind of scientist.

If the prima facie case rests with design and therefore Creation, then the sensible person believes that unless and until the alternative is PROVEN otherwise. And he proceeded to FAIL spectacularly by any standard outside of his own incredibly narrow-minded presupposed viewpoint that he holds a priori based on his narrow-minded speculations rather than any legitimate science.

Then I read a book that I got from the library called “Darwin’s Enigma” from a man named Luther Sunderland. And what intrigued me about that book was that it was written by a guy who had literally been hired by the state of New York for the purpose of ascertaining whether creationism was an acceptable teaching for public schools. And he talked to the leading evolutionists in the world as he compiled his research from that secular purpose. Some of the curators from the leading museums of natural history on planet earth were literally quoted as saying that evolution was NOT a legitimate scientific theory and should NOT be taught as a fact in the public schools.

So I believe as I ought to believe when I intellectually believe there is a God who intelligently designed us with a plan for His creation. And I believe what I ought to believe when I morally believe that there is a God who holds us accountable for how we live and how we act.

And then from that I began to study the world religions. I examined each one until it disqualified itself. But at the same time I had already determined that ONE of them must be the real McCoy.

I considered Buddhism and Hinduism. I considered Islam. The first two disqualified themselves on the intellectual level because who the heck instituted “reincarnation”??? Who built that thing? Who designed that system? And who made the rest of us that go through these endless cycles of reincarnation? And who was the Big Banger who made it all happen? They also failed on numerous moral grounds. You look at India and see the caste system and you know what I’m talking about; you see the millions of gods and the fact that evil and good are basically viewed as being two sides of the same coin and you see what I’m talking about.

It isn’t rocket science, kiddies.  God is either personal or impersonal: if He is personal, then Buddhism and Hinduism are false; if He is impersonal, then Christianity and Judaism and Islam are false.

And this is critical because it answers a fundamental question about the human race: either WE are personal or impersonal.  If we are personal, where do we get our personhood from?  How is it that we come to have free will?  Genesis 1:27 provides a very clear answer: “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

Buddhism strictly denies the existence of human beings as “selves.”  This doctrine is literally one of the three marks of existence of Buddhism: Anattā (no-self, without soul, no essence) is the nature of living beings.  The other two are Anicca (impermanence, nothing lasts) and Dukkha (suffering, unsatisfactoriness is innate in birth, aging, death, rebirth, redeath – the Saṃsāra cycle of existence).  And scientific naturalism likewise denies the existence of the self, of the soul, of a “you” that is a permanent you, for what it’s worth.  According to these views, there IS no “you” inside you; there IS no free will; you are a strictly determined and strictly conditioned being with no soul.

Islam is mono-theistic, which is good. But from there it gets very, very bad very, very quickly. And the fact that today 99.99 percent of terrorist attackers are being committed by the most ardent followers of what Muhammad actually taught is kind of icing on that cake.  If you understand the dilemma of violence inherent within Islam – which is NOT shared by Christianity – it is frankly terrifying.  Islam specifically denies that God has a Son, so if Jesus is who the Bible declares He is, Islam is false.  And if Jesus is NOT who the Bible declares Him to be, then Christianity is false.

Each of the great religions of the world teach mutually exclusive truth claims: they can’t all be true or right.  You are a fool according to the rules of logic and reason to believe “all paths lead to the same God.”  Because no, they don’t.

And Jesus Himself ruled that politically-correct cultural relativist view that all religions were equally valid when He said, “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

There are literally thousands and thousands of teachers and professors with PhDs who are literally presenting their students with intellectual gibberish when they teach the pluralistic universalism that is so common today.

Now, I want you to understand; I’m not micro-nitpicking at this point on ANY of my above investigations. I’m just trying to ascertain whether or not the BIG PICTURE is true. If the big picture is false, then all the tiny little details are false, too. Or, to put it another way: if the big picture is fake, who gives a damn about whether the inconsequential details are true or not?

So when I get to Christianity, it all ends up boiling down to one simple question: did Jesus rise bodily from the dead, as His disciples claimed? What’s the evidence for that central claim of Christianity? And if that big picture claim is false, then I frankly don’t give a flying damn about the Bible. But if it’s true…?

I dedicated myself to a study of the evidence about the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead. And if you examine that claim with a halfway open mind, the evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead is simply astounding and irrefutable. The bottom line comes down to this: there is simply no reasonable question that Jesus’ disciples believed with ever fiber of their being that they had seen Jesus alive after His crucifixion and death and burial. There isn’t a single New Testament scholar – Christian or secularist alike – who claims the disciples didn’t genuine believe they had seen Jesus alive. Their completely transformed lives and boldness in the face of certain persecution and even death confirms that fact. And in fact it is a historical fact that every single one of the apostles save St. John died as martyrs having traveled the known world to tell people about the Jesus they had personally seen alive after His death in confirmation of all of His claims of His deity and His purpose for coming into the world: to die for our sins and to rise again and take His sheep with Him to the Father in Heaven.

Find me one person who you know to have died for something that they knew for a fact to be false. Yes, we have a lot of Muslim “martyrs” who blow themselves up to kill “infidels” and we probably both agree these people are tragically wrong: but THEY believe what they’re doing is right and THEY believe in Allah. But you need to understand as you read the Gospel accounts: the disciples were in a unique position in human history: they were in the position to absolutely know for certain whether or not Jesus actually rose from the dead.

And every single one of them signed in their own blood their testimony that yes, they had witnessed it with their own eyes and they were willing to therefore lay down their own lives to carry their OWN crosses (literally the instruments of their death penalties) and die for their Lord who had already died for them and given their lives and their deaths meaning.

If Jesus died and rose again from the dead, Christianity is true and everything Jesus said is true and the Christianity that He founded is true and the Bible is true and that’s that. And He did and He did and He WAS true and Christianity IS true and the Bible that He affirmed is true and that’s that.

And to a man like me, that is all I need to tell me what I should live for and how I ought to live.

That’s the big picture. But there is so much confirmation in the little tidbits, too.

Just – and I mean JUST – watched a program called “The Fall of Jericho” on the military history channel I love to watch. And I watched a drama that has been played out over and over again about the accuracy and legitimacy of the Holy Bible. I couldn’t find the transcript of the program, but here’s a link that describes in even more detail what was presented.

So Jericho. Did it happen according to what the Bible claims in the Book of Joshua? Well, you wouldn’t believe how many times “scientists” said hell no. And they said it with no legitimate archaeological basis. An archaeologist named Garstang made it his life’s work to go through the layers of cities that Jericho had been built and rebuilt on in the 1930s. And he found something fascinating in one of those layers: the walls had collapsed in EXACTLY the pattern that the Bible described in the conquest of Jericho. Well, we know that Joshua and the Israelites entered the land in the late Bronze age. In fact we know by other data the actual time of 1406 BC. So Garstang was interested in WHEN the walls had collapsed. And he started collecting and dating pottery. And according to his analysis, the date of the site was 1406BC – EXACTLY WHEN THE BIBLE SAID. So the Bible was established FACT and to the level of amazing scientific verifiability.

But hold on. A different archaeologist showed up named Kathleen Kenyon and “found” that no, the walls of Jericho had been destroyed 150 years earlier. And she used the same pottery as her primary source of dating.

Thirty years pass. For thirty years all the “scholars” and all the “scientists” sneered at the Bible. It had been factually refuted.

But a guy named Dr. Bryant Woods shows up in the 1980s. And he’s doing his PhD on pottery and decides to reopen the case that had been “rock-solid” against the Bible. He decided he was going to evaluate ALL the evidence of the pottery fragments. He tracked them all down. And to his intellectual horror he discovered that this pseudo-scientific fraud Kathleen Kenyon had not even BOTHERED to look at most of the actual evidence before arriving at her sneering bogus conclusion.  Seriously, Woods went to the museums and found that Kenyon hadn’t even examined the evidence.

And Dr. Bryant Woods CONCLUSIVELY PROVED THAT THE BIBLE WAS COMPLETELY HISTORICALLY ACCURATE IN EVERY SINGLE DETAIL THAT IT HAD AFFIRMED.

And this sneering arrogant intellectually dishonest fools’ game has been played over and over and over again with the Bible.

But the fact remains that NO archaeological find has EVER controverted a SINGLE fact presented in the Bible. It stands as completely true in all that it affirms.

The Bible remains true as the anvil of history. You can pound on it as you will, but you will die and the Word of the Living God will go on and on and on.

The Bible is beyond any doubt the best seller in the entire history of planet earth: more copies are sold every year, more are sold every single month, every single week, every single DAY, than any other book in the world. Twenty million copies of the Bible are sold each year just in the United States alone.  And that doesn’t even count the millions of copies that are given away by people who have their OWN stories of their OWN encounters with a Jesus who is STILL alive.  As an example, the Gideons alone distributes about 60 million copies of the Bible a year.

The Harry Potter series has collectively sold 500 million copies worldwide, which is truly astounding.  Unless you compare it to the more than six BILLION copies of the Bible.

The Bible is available in over 2,100 languages.  Because humanity has a passion and a hunger for the true Word of the Living God.

Richard Dawkins’ book, for the official record, is not; in fact it’s none of the above at all.

So I read the Bible with that understanding that it is THE most sacred Book in the history of the world. It ought to be given that respect because what I just stated is simply true by any objective measure. But the scoffers continue to abound and they have no respect for anything that is sacred.

But it comes down to this: people who fixate on the most minor details and then say, “See? It’s wrong, it’s ALL wrong!!!” are not wise.

Most of the time, when I hear somebody assert to me that the Bible isn’t accurate or isn’t reliable, and I ask them to give me an example, they literally cannot think of even ONE such example. Somebody at some time said something, and that was all they needed and they never bothered on their own to verify or refute a claim they just took at face value.

I simply marvel at that: your entire ETERNITY hangs on this, and you just yawn and walk away like it’s no big deal when it is the biggest deal of your existence.

My challenge to everyone is to study the questions of eternity as though your soul depends on it: because it DOES.

DON’T be a “Kathleen Kenyon” who doesn’t bother with the facts and arrives at bogus conclusions that are based on lies; be a “Bryant Wood” who carefully examines all the evidence and arrives at the truth.  Be like St. Luke the author of the Gospels and Acts, who stated, “I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning” (Luke 1:3).  Be like the Bereans, who “were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11).

Consider Jesus.  Consider Who He was and whether He Is.

One way or another, you have to answer the ultimate questions. Is there a God? Who is He? What does He expect of us? Or is there NO god? And if not why should I bother living in accordance with a bunch of made-up politically correct gibberish and if I want something that someone else has, why shouldn’t I steal it and if somebody’s bothering me why shouldn’t I kill him or her? And who the hell does any other human being think he or she is to tell me what I should do or how I should live when it’s MY life and it will be MY eternal dirt nap and butt the hell out of my business because I’m not a herd animal, I’m a predator animal.  And your own precious evolution says we predators are every bit as evolutionarily valid as your herd animals.

Or chose Christ and choose life and experience life more abundantly instead.  Because Jesus contrasted the Way of Evolution with His Way when He said:

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” — John 10:10

Stop being double-minded, unstable in all your ways.  Stop wavering between two opinions.  Make up your mind.  Get off the fence.  Choose this day whom you will serve.

The Stupidest Lie In All Human History: It Has Nothing To Do With Islam When Muslims Force You To Recite Qur’an Or Die

July 5, 2016

I am going to proceed to prove and document that if you are a Democrat, you are a demon-possessed fool of the most depraved sort imaginable.

The Los Angeles Times did a major investigative article on June 26, 2016.  It describes just one bloody month – in other words, just a typical month in our world today – of April in which there wasn’t a single day in which there was not a deadly terrorist attack somewhere in the world.  Interestingly, in this article a chart is featured labeling each group responsible for an attack and the number of casualties.  The groups dominating the top were Islamic State which killed 395 people, the Taliban, which killed 109, Boko Haram, which killed 68, Shabab, which killed 41, the Syrian rebels, who killed 23, Abu SAyyaf, which killed 19.  You have to really get into the WEEDS before you find a group that isn’t officially ISLAMIC.

NINETY-FIVE PERCENT of the murders committed by terrorists groups in this month were committed by MUSLIM GROUPS.  More than 800 people were butchered by Muslims claiming Allah and claiming Islamic theology as their primary motivating force to do what they do.

You cannot keep believing these Democrat Party lies that Islam and terrorism have no legitimate connection or relationship.

Of course, the Los Angles Times, being leftist propaganda drivel, doesn’t point that rather important fact out to you.  Nope.  You’ve got to look up the terrorist groups yourself, find out their ideology and do the tallies and then do the math.  Other than the Indian Maoists, the Kurdistan Workers Party (communist), the Lord’s Resistance Army, Renamo, the New People’s Army (communist),  and the New Irish Republican Army, they’ll all MUSLIM.   And these other terrorist groups are chicken feed compared to the real terrorist monsters who are murdering hundreds at a time.

Meanwhile, Democrats like Obama and like Hillary Clinton keep spouting that the Muslim world hates terrorism and is actually joining with us to fight it.  Bull crap.  Last year it was revealed that in spite of Obama’s ocean of lies, HALF A BILLION DOLLARS was committed to training “four or five” Syrian rebels.  Yeah, those Muslims just can’t WAIT to fight terror, can they?  And just in case you’re wondering, Obama just proved that Muslims are NOT going to fight terrorist Muslims YET AGAIN.  Obama blathers idiotically and demonically about Republicans causing terror by giving terrorists access to guns; the only problem with that is Obama believes that every single American who believes in the U.S. Constitution is a “terrorist” while he has put ALL KINDS of weapons including M1-Abrams main battle tanks into the hands of Islamic State again and again as his “good Muslims” drop their weapons and flee time and time and time again.  In fact, we find out that Obama gave $1 billion in military aid to Islamic State because he abandoned Iraq to the terrorists and they just walked up to Obama, bitch-slapped our weak coward in chief, and took his stuff having made sure there wasn’t so much as a single US soldier to say, “Hey, waitaminute.”

Obama has boasted and boasted and boasted about his “fifty nation coalition.”  It’s a joke.

So Obama and Hillary are out there dishonestly claiming that Islamic terrorism isn’t “Islamic” and that Muslims are our friends.  And they’re just lying right out of their anuses they call their mouths.  Muslims are OVERWHELMINGLY responsible for the vicious terrorism and they can’t even tell us who our enemy is.  And meanwhile they dishonestly pretending that we have allies that we very clearly do not have.

Obama and Hillary Clinton are claiming that their strategy to fight terrorism is somehow working when terrorism has exploded 800 percent under Obama and will have exploded by more than 1,700 percent by the time the disgraced fool leaves office.  Just look at the chart and do your own simple extrapolation of where the trend under Obama is headed:

Deaths Due To Terrorism

Terrorism has doubled exponentially every single two year period while Obama has dishonestly claimed he’s been winning and succeeding.

Obama and Hillary Clinton are claiming that their strategy to contain terrorism is somehow working when more than 65 million Muslims have fled and it is only a matter of time before those 65 million Muslims become embittered wherever they end up and become our future “homegrown terrorists.”

The human race has never witnessed anything like this.  This is not merely “failure,” this is DEMONIC FAILURE.

But THE most dishonest media – even making Joseph Goebbels’ Ministry of Propaganda in the days of Nazi Germany and the TASS of the Soviet days look honest in comparison – are NOT telling the story and they are intentionally NOT connecting the dots so that people can see that Obama has failed them, failed America, failed the world, failed the entire human SPECIES.

Democrats and liberal Muslim contextualizers will stand there and tell us that most of the victims of terrorism are Muslims.  And that’s actually true.  But what does it prove?  Nothing, when Muslims have been the primary murderers of Muslims since Islam split into the two warring factions of Sunni and Shia at the moment that Muhammad died.  The Day of Ashura was a day of massacre in which the followers who became Sunnis massacred the grandson of Muhammad and his companions.  That violence has continued ever since.  During the Iran-Iraq War, more than a million Muslims were murdered by Muslims.  This notion that Muslims are somehow victims because the terrorists who murder also murder Muslims is a great big fat giant fraud.  Muslims will murder anyone they can murder and do so quite gleefully.

You cannot keep believing these Democrat Party lies that Obama has succeeded or that Hillary Clinton will succeed.

On the same day they did their study of the 180 attacks committed in April, the same Los Angeles Times published news of new major attacks on page A4, including a story about Muslim gunmen from Shabab murdering 14 people in Somalia and the Muslim-created “catastrophic humanitarian emergency” for Nigerians.  Tens out thousands of people have fled and are literally starving to death because – as the LA Times notes – “Violence in northern Nigeria fueled by the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram, has forced more than 2.5 million people to flee their homes, according to United Nations statistics.”  Those murders weren’t included in the big story titled “Diary of Terror” that the LA Times featured on the main page without every once singling out Islam for the vicious religion that it is.

And that month wasn’t ANYTHING compared to the month of June, the primary month of Ramadan which ends tomorrow.  We had the attack in Orlando.  But that was merely one bloody attack in one incredibly bloody stretch of Muslim holy month: Iraq just lost 2oo people to Islamic terrorists yesterday.  Islamic State claimed responsibility.  Immediately before that, in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Muslim terrorists seized a restaurant and took hostages, killing at least 20 foreigners.  Those who could recite from the Qur’an were spared:

Dhaka: The attackers involved in the Dhaka restaurant siege had asked their victims to recite from the Quran before deciding on whom to spare, a leading Bangladeshi daily said on its website on Saturday.

“Those who could recite a verse from the Quran were spared, others were tortured,” the Daily Star quoted a rescued hostage as saying.

At least 20 foreigners, including an Indian, were killed in the 10-hour siege at the Holey Artisan Bakery in the diplomatic enclave of the Bangladeshi capital.

The siege ended after the Bangladeshi security forces gunned down six of the attackers and captured one of their associates.

Those who could not recite from the Quran were tortured by the gunmen, said Rezaul Karim, father of Hasnat Karim who was held hostage for over 10 hours.

Sounds exactly like something any card-carrying “religion of peace, charity and justice” would do, right, Barry Hussein???

The funny thing is that I think I could actually pull that one off and recite from the Holy Qur’an:

 And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah (disbelief) is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Haram (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless they (first) fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.  But if they cease, then Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.  And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allah (Alone). — Qur’an 2:191-193

Ah, yes, the religion of peace is so peaceful when everyone who would say anything to argue is DEAD.

But there, I recited the evil, hateful, vile, demonic Qur’an for you Muslim murderers, so let me go.

I welcome the Los Angeles Times to do a follow-up story over the months of June and July and see how Islam is faring in it’s Obamaesque version as “the religion of peace, charity and justice.”  And it’s quite a marvelous thing to listen to our Muslim-in-Chief praise Muhammad and his Islam while he insults Jesus Christ and His Christianity.  But then again, Obama actually said “my Muslim faith” and had to be officially corrected as to what his faith was supposed to be according to his previous dishonest blatherings about being a Christian.  I’ll give this to Obama: he isn’t any less Christian than Lucifer.  Or any more Christian, either.

In a previous article, I go into rather great detail comparing the Qur’an to the Holy Bible in terms of commandments to violence.  It’s not that hard, folks.  The Old Testament of the Holy Bible predates Islam by something on the order of 4,000 years.  By the time Muhammad had written the Qur’an, Jesus had appeared some six centuries previous – in fulfillment of the Old Testament prophets to fulfill Judaism – and Jesus taught peace as the Prince of Peace.  He told His followers to put away their swords and allowed Himself to be taken and tortured and crucified to death by violent, evil men.  Not exactly the path that Muhammad took when he took part in over thirty military campaigns of conquest, committed multiple acts of genocide, and had another thirty more planned at the time of his death.  Which by the way was the result of being poisoned by a Jewish woman vengeful over yet another murderous attack against Jews in which he killed the men and enslaved the women and children.

Jesus prophesied His own death; Muhammad turned out to be not so good at it.  But Jesus also prophesied that He would – as God’s powerful Son – be raised from the dead in proof of His deity and His divine message.  “The Prophet” really failed miserably at pulling off that feat.

I simply cannot stand it when an Obama or a Hillary Clinton or a CAIR representative or some other leftist Islamist contextualizer makes the ridiculous statement that “whoever did this terrible deed is not a true follower of Islam.”  Because I would just like to ask that fool one simple question: “Okay, do you think that the Prophet Muhammad was ‘a true follower of Islam’?”  Because it is a simple matter of history to document that the Prophet did all the same damn things that Obama and the leftist Muslim contextualizers today say is so against the teachings of Islam.  You can tell me that according to Islam killing and committing acts of genocide against your enemies is a good thing; but what you CANNOT tell me is that Muhammad didn’t do those things.  Because it is simply a fact of history that he did.

I keep hearing this insane crap about the Muslim terrorist murder of homosexuals and how tolerant Muhammad supposedly was to homosexuals according to these idiotic liberal contextualizers of Islam.  And so they’ll mindlessly quote Sura 5:32 that says, “the killing of an innocent life is like the killing of all mankind, the saving of an innocent life is the saving of all mankind.”  And yeah, Muhammad said that: WHEN HE WAS IN MECCA AND HE WAS THE UNDERDOG.  He said a lot of sweet stuff then when his adversaries were far more powerful than he was.   But when he went to Medina and became the strong man, the gates of hell opened.  And those liberal contextualizers of Islam refuse to quote the vicious stuff Muhammad wrote at the end of his life that according to Islam’s doctrine of abrogation supplants the sweet nice stuff he wrote early when he was afraid of his enemies.

The Qur’an and Islams other accepted holy sources actually are quite explicit how Islam should deal with homosexuals.  And it aint nice.

In any event, in that article of mine I link to four paragraphs above, I point out a very important fact: that while the OLD Testament contains commandments to violence (that were highly specific in that they were given to ONE people at ONE point in time for ONE single act whereas the commandments to violence in Islam are universal and given to every Muslim throughout the centuries), the NEW Testament contains NO commands to commit violence and actually teaches peace.  Just find me ONE command in the New Testament where Christians are commanded to commit murder or violence.  And understand that I point out and demonstrate that even the Old Testament of the Bible anticipates its own replacement, calling for “a New Covenant” (Jeremiah 31:31-34).  Which was fulfilled and inaugurated by Jesus of Nazareth who fulfilled every jot and tittle of the Old Testament (see Matthew 5:18).  As Jesus said in the preceding verse, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”  And Jesus DID fulfill the Law and the Prophets, and so everything in the Old Testament that isn’t specifically restated is considered fulfilled and done away with – which includes any and all teachings of VIOLENCE.  Compare that to Islam which must feature a doctrine called “abrogation.”  Look at how the reliably leftist Google puts it when you type in the words Islam and abrogation:

abrogation

If Muhammad said two things that appear to be contradictory, you must heed the last command he gave.  And he did that a LOT, by the way.  There are a whole BUNCH of what I call “convenient suras” in which Muhammad contradicted something he had previously said in order to justify getting something he wanted.  And in the case of the history of Muhammad and the Islam he created, there is simply no question: when Muhammad started out in Medina, he was the underdog and even his own tribe refused to follow him and he preached during this phase peace and tolerance and co-existence.  Until he reached Medina and gained power and began to teach the violent subjugation of his enemies.

Let me simply copy and paste here from what I’ve already documented before:

Liberals completely fail to comprehend this: the Bible begins with violence and moves to peace.

Not so the Qur’an.  Not so Muhammad.  When you read a Qur’an, understand that “Muhammad was like two different persons at two different times and the Quran is like two contradictory books pasted together.”  Understand that in Islam you have 1390 Years of Violence and only 10 years of Peace.

When Mohammad first began to proselytize his new religion in Mecca and claim that he was receiving revelations from Allah, he was decidedly the underdog.  And correspondingly all of his revelations centered around peaceful coexistence and tolerance.

But then Mohammad went to Medina in what is today called “Al Hijra.”  He was able to garner followers and became militarily powerful.  And suddenly all of the revelations of his Qur’an took a decidedly violent turn.

The Qur’an was NOT organized in any kind of chronological order; rather, it was organized by length, from the longest to the shortest suras.

When you re-arrange the Qur’an by chronology, you get this order: and you get not violence to peace as the Holy Bible gives, but peace to VIOLENCE.

So, for example, do your own research.  Consider the very first violent Sura 2:191-193 found in the Qur’an which states, And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killingbut if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful.   And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone.  But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)”.  And lo and behold, when you examine the chronological order and look to the right column to see where it was organized according to the tradition based on length of sura, you find that this edict found in Sura 2 to “kill them wherever you may find them” is the VERY FIRST sura Mohammad conveniently claimed he received from Allah when he arrived in Medina and became the dominant power. 

This is not merely a command for violence; it is a UNIVERSAL COMMAND for violence.  I’ll talk about that more.

Keep going down the list of violent suras and look at where they are found, whether they were written earlier in Mohammad’s Mecca phase or later when he arrived at Medina and became militarily powerful.

You will find that without any question, the vast overwhelming majority of violent sura that commanded violence and death were given in Medina just as the vast overwhelming majority of suras commanding any kind of “peace” was given in Mecca.

A simple historic statement of fact: Mohammad and the Qur’an takes us from peace to viciousness and hate and murder and death and slaughter.

Now, this is bad, but it actually gets WORSE.  Because Islam has a doctrine called “abrogation” by which later suras correct and supercede earlier ones.

In other words, if Mohammad first said “peace” and then he said “war,” the ONLY correct interpretation of the Qur’an MUST BE WAR.

Now, abrogation is not necessarily such a terrible thing; every parent has done it: your child may ask you if she can go to a party, and then you find out something you don’t like about the party that makes you change or mind, or your child misbehaves and you say, “Now you can’t go.”  You’ve abrogated your previous statement.  You’ve said yes and now you’re saying no to the same thing you’d said yes to.  So if your child comes to you and says, “You said on Monday I could go, so I went,” you are enraged as you point out, “But I said on TUESDAY you could NOT go, so you are in a heap of trouble!”

It’s different when it comes to a revelation from God, though: God isn’t supposed to be caught by surprise or change His mind with new information or be wrong and then correct Himself.  How did Mohammad respond to this dilemma?  It seems that Qur’an 2:106 was “revealed” in response to skepticism directed at Muhammad that Allah’s revelations were not entirely consistent over time. Muhammad’s rebuttal was that ”Allah is able to do all things” — even change his mind.

And hence we have examples of blatantly obvious abrogation in the Qur’an such as:

In Surah 58, Al Mujadilah, verse 12, the believers are commanded to give alms before a private consultation with the Messenger. In verse 13 they are told that it is no longer necessary.

In Surah 33, Al Ahzab, verses 50-51 Muhammad (p.b.u.h.) is allowed to marry and divorce an unlimited number of women. In verse 52 he is prohibited to continue to do so.

In Surah 73, Al Muzzammil, verses 2-4, the prophet of Islam is commanded to spend about half of the night in prayer and reading of the Quran. In verse 20 of the same Surah this is changed into what is easy for him and those who followed his example.

But this Islamic view of Allah is in very direct contrast to the Judeo-Christian God of the Bible, and so we have passages like Numbers 23:19: “God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?

Sneering liberal pseudo-intellectuals claim that Christianity has the same issue of abrogation, BUT WE DON’T.  And they are frankly moral idiots of the very lowest order to make such a blatantly false claim.  Here’s why:

  1. In every single example of violence in the Old Testament, it is ALWAYS in EVERY CASE a specific command by God to a specific people to do a specific thing at a specific time for a specific reason.  There is NO universalized commandment by God to always kill everyone the way we see in the Qur’an, no “kill them wherever you find them.”  There are no verses in the Bible that say “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you…” (Qur’an 2:216), no “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah” (Qur’an 4:76).  God never gives a universal command that He later has to take back.
  2. If the Bible were given the same way the Qur’an is given, Moses would have commanded peace and Jesus would have come after Moses and subsequently taught, “But I tell you, hate your enemies and slaughter those who persecute you.”  When Jesus, in fulfillment of the New Covenant that even the Old Covenant itself anticipated hundreds of years before Jesus’ arrival on earth, as the Prince of Peace, actually taught, “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Matthew 5:44).  You need to comprehend how absolutely MASSIVE is the difference between a religion that begins with violence and then moves to peace (Christianity) verses a religion that begins with peace and then ends with commands to universalized violence.
  3. The Old Testament of the Holy Bible pointedly “abrogates” ITSELF in terms of violence because it promises a New Covenant and then it DELIVERS one in the form of the Prince of Peace, Jesus.  The “abrogation” of violence was not for the sake of Jesus’ convenience, the way the abrogation of peace for a call to violence clearly was politically oh-so-very convenient for Mohammad.  Let me put it this way: Jesus told Peter, “Put away your sword” (Matthew 26:52) in order that He could be arrested and beaten and go to the cross where He would die a terrible, humiliating, agonizing death in our place for our sins.  Versus Mohammad who said let’s be peaceful when he was the underdog and then turned on a dime and ordered mass violence the moment his forces gained the upper hand.
  4. The Bible doesn’t “abrogate” violence merely because times had changed and the world was no longer a violent place and the Bible was correcting a problem that was obviously out of step with the rest of the world.  Any such notion is simply FALSE.  The Romans at the time of Christ were as vicious and brutal as ANYONE ever had been; what they did to Jesus itself proves that.  And Jesus’ disciples wrote the New Testament not only in light of what Rome had done to Jesus, but in light of the fact that even as they were writing, Rome was treating Christians viciously.  St. Peter and St. Paul were both executed by Rome, as were many other disciples.
  5. The God of the Bible is a God of wrath just as He is a God of love.  But all of His attributes are perfectly balanced, such that His wrath is manifested in the attribute of justice that ultimately flows from love.  And the toleration of evil results in a lack of justice.  And so God gave His people the sword and used them as an instrument in defined, limited circumstances and only in accordance with His command.  But ultimately He was always preparing for the arrival of His Son, the Prince of Peace.
  6. Finally, the thing that changed in the Bible was this: “But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship” (Galatians 4:4-5).  God prophesied a coming Messiah who would epitomize and usher in a “new covenant,” and Jesus came as foretold.
  7. And so Jesus completely fulfilled the Old Covenant (Matthew 5:17).  The various laws and regulations and customs of the Old Testament weren’t “abrogated,” but rather they were fulfilled and served their purpose and were no longer necessary because the promised Messiah took their burden off our necks.  And so Christians have realized even in the time of St. Peter that unless a principle or a command from the Old Covenant is specifically repeated/restated in the New Covenant, it was fulfilled by Christ and no longer applies to New Covenant believers.  We can compare the Old Covenant and the New to the abacus vs. the computer or the horse vs. the automobile: the former things weren’t “abrogated” and declared wrong; rather they served their purpose and we now use the superior things.  Christ is the Superior which fulfilled the inferior and the inferior that served as a type or a shadow of the Superior (see for example Colossians 2:17Hebrews 8:5) is therefore no longer needed.

It is for this reason that I point out the fact and hereby state for the historical record that Penn State religious history professor Philip Jenkins is an abject moral idiot and the worst kind of intellectual fraud.  He is, as are all progressive liberals, a pathologically ignorant fool masquerading himself as someone who is wise and knowledgeable when he in fact teaches the precise opposite of wisdom and knowledge.  Jenkins is not only utterly blind to what is actually going on all around him in the real world as Muslim terrorists murder and bomb innocent people in the name of Allah, but as I have just proven he is just as utterly blind to the religious theology that he claims that he is an expert in.

A passage from Colossians sums these liberal fools up well: “Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.” – Colossians 2:8.  Tragically, modern universities teach very little BUT “empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense.”

The fact that the Qur’an does NOT begin with violence and then end with peace, but rather the opposite, and the fact that abrogation forces true Muslims to accept that the later “revelations” to Mohammad supercede previous ones, puts Islam in a deep, dark pit of endless violence that is NOT true of Christianity.

Which is why Christianity and Christ are attacked all the damn TIME by liberals and Christians don’t unleash waves of violent hate the way Muslims routinely do the moment they even THINK their Prophet might be getting insulted.

We are left with a giant problem of Islam: we find that Islam, Mohammad and the Qur’an spent ten years deceiving people by preaching peace and tolerance in order to grow strong and powerful, and then the rest of history practicing force and violence and terror the moment they were able to gain the upper hand.

We find that Islam does NOT mean “peace” as liberals love to adoringly say; it means “submission.”  AND YOU WILL SUBMIT OR ELSE YOU WILL BE KILLED.

A historical study of Mohammad’s life reveals that the “Prophet of Peace” had fought in over thirty violent military campaigns and had at least another thirty campaigns planned at the time of his death in 632 AD.  In fact I can quote you Islamic sources that state, “that the Prophet waged jihad operations 77 times in the first 10 years as head of the Muslim community in Medina.”  But it is a fact of history that when Mohammad showed up at Medina, he became a violent terrorist warmonger who waged unrelenting war until he defeated and subjugated everyone around him.  What you will also find is that Islam did NOT practice peace after Mohammad’s death; in fact it split due to terrifying, graphic and vicious violence that continues to this very day as the viciousness created Sunni and Shiite Islam.  But within 100 years of Mohammad’s death, warring, violent Muslims were attacking Christian Europe and had killed an looted and pillaged their way all across the entirety of Europe before finally being crushed by Charles “the Hammer” Martel at the Battle of Tours in France in 732.  Preceding that, in the late 7th century, the most intolerant religion on earth built the Dome of the Rock directly on top of the most holy site of Judaism where the Jewish Temple had been built, where Abraham had been told to take his son Isaac as a sacrifice but God had provided a ram in place of Isaac.  By then, violent warring Muslims had already poured across Africa and seized the Christian realms established by St. Augustine.  All of the vast peaceful Christian provinces of North Africa had fallen to the bloody sword of Allah by 711.  Violent, warring Muslims poured into Christian Spain to be finally defeated by El Cid.  Violent, warring Muslims poured into the Christian Byzantine Empire and besieged Constantinople and the Christian Emperor pleaded with the Pope to send Christian warriors to defend a Christian realm from Muslim conquest in what became known as the Crusades.

As we celebrate our Declaration of Independence – which contains obvious references to the God of the Christian Bible that the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama repudiate and dishonestly claims has no bearing upon our nation that Abraham Lincoln called “this nation, under God,” understand that uor Founding Fathers were still dealing with Islam when the Barbary Pirates were committing acts of terror against our ships and our sailors in the late 18th century.

Again, it is so damn simple and Democrats are so damned, rabidly dishonest: our founding fathers in the Declaration of independence stated their reason to separate from England: namely that the King of England was usurping rights:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

The Declaration of Independence could not put the case much more clearly: 1) God ordained man with certain rights; 2) to secure these God-ordained rights, governments are instituted among men; 3) any government that violates or usurps these God-ordained rights can be overthrown; 4) the king of England has indeed violated these God-ordained rights; and therefore 5) we are separating from England.  And the Constitution that came after we successfully fought to separate from England proceeds to describe a government that does NOT violate the rights that God had ordained in mankind.  At least until Democrats came along, murdered sixty million innocent human beings in a vicious and vile process known as “abortion” in which every single father has the right to the life of his very own child stripped from him.  And homosexuality was erected in place of Christian morality and socialist human Government that has gone FAR BEYOND any damn thing the king of England ever did was imposed and worshiped in place of Christianity.

George Washington, the father of our country, put it this way:

“Of all the habits and dispositions which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.” — George Washington, Farewell Address

If you want your politics to prosper, the two things you will not separate will be religion and morality. If you want your government to work well, if you want American exceptionalism, if you want the government to do right, if you want all this, then you won’t separate religion and morality from political life. And America’s greatest patriot gave a litmus test for patriotism. He says in the very next sentence (immediately continuing from the quote above):

“In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars.” — George Washington

Washington says, Anyone who would try to remove religion and morality from public life, I won’t allow them to call themselves a patriot. Because they are trying to destroy the country.

Founding father John Adams said:

“We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and true religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

You simply cannot take the Christian out of America and keep America.  OR the Constitution that was itself based on morality and the true religion of Christianity.  Our nation will collapse and our founding fathers understood that.  And Democrats are traitors and fools for their pathological ignorance and frankly their pathological depravity.

But I digress from my primary message that Democrats are demon-possessed whackjobs who rabidly despise reality and are literally saying that the ninety-five percent of terrorist attacks committed in the name of Allah by Muslims according to the teachings of the Qur’an according to the life example of Muhammad somehow have nothing whatsoever to do with Islam.

Islam could NOT be more clear: kill your enemy.  Kill him wherever you may find him.  Any so-called “peaceful sura” was abrogated and replaced with the command to violently kill.  Muhammad, the paradigm of Islam, proved that and demonstrated that and documented that in the blood of his victims throughout his wicked and vicious life.

Please stop denying simple reality.

If you want true peace, you turn to the religion that every single Democrat radically despises: biblical Christianity.

Democrats, as I’ve said again and again and again, are “DEMOnic bureuaCRATS.”  Democrats are demon-possessed worshipers of the human State that murders God’s babies to the tune of TEN TIMES MORE EVIL than the Nazi Holocaust while worshiping homosexual perversion as they strip away God’s ordained morality and replace it with immorality directly out of the depraved heart of the devil.  And they actually do so claiming they are doing God’s work!!!

Read Romans 1:18-32 and begin to understand the last-days horror of hell that is the Democratic Party:

Unbelief and Its Consequences

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth [a]in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known about God is evident [b]within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21 For even though they knew God, they did not [c]honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and [d]crawling creatures.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for [e]a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed [f]forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is [g]unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing [h]indecent acts and receiving in [i]their own persons the due penalty of their error.

28 And just as they did not see fit [j]to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, [k]haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

Number one, if you are a Democrat, you suppress the truth in unrighteousness.  That is what you are and that is what you do.  Don’t tell me that isn’t a fundamental fact about the Democratic PartyDon’t tell me that Democrats have abandoned God as Creator.  You have replaced the truth about a Creator God with godless evolution.  You have replaced the truth that human beings are created from the womb in the image of a holy God and you have monstrously and wickedly replaced it with sixty million abortions.

And as a result, what is SELF-EVIDENT, such as recognizing a Creator God, such as recognizing obvious reality about the nature of Islam and the nature of Islamic terrorism, is denied and rejected no matter how damned beyond obvious it is.  And so every damn wicked thought you have is futile and false.

And because of that, GOD HAS GIVEN YOUR PARTY OVER TO WICKEDNESS.  It is amazing that every time in the Book of Romans that you see the phrase, “God gave them over,” you can trace the content of that phrase DIRECTLY to the Democratic Party platform.

The Democratic Party is the Party that God gave over to wrath.

2 Thessalonians 2:11 couldn’t make what has happened to the Democratic Party more plain:

For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie.

Stop believing the lie.  Stop believing the Democratic Party when they tell you lie after lie after LIE.
