Women in love with their dogs

I’m in the Dallas/Ft. Worth airport, coming back from one of America’s vain pursuits:  vacationing.  For some reason, I get a ravenous appetite whenever I travel by plane, even if it’s for a short amount of time.

Craving a Wendy’s hamburger, I order a 1/2 lb. cheeseburger combo.  (And by the way, eating greasy, unhealthy food is another vain American past time, but since this is the first time I’ve had a Wendy’s in probably a year or so, I give myself some slack.)  Just as I’m about to dive into this greasy delight, an overweight woman, who appears to be in her late twenties/early thirties, saunters up to the counter with an ugly Chihuhua in some type of carry-bag.

She kisses its ugly little snout as she waits to order.

To say I become a bit peeved at this would not be far from the truth, but I can’t allow this affront to my sensibilites to ruin my meal.  Instead, I ponder this modern day obsession women have with their dogs.

On the flight to Dallas, one of the American Airlines stewardesses, a semi-attractive blond in her late thirties/early forties, was taking a break in the tiny cubicle where stewardesses sit near the black of the aircraft; she was positioned right in front of me, facing my direction, at an easy viewing angle.

As she was playing with her smart phone (yet another vain pursuit of Americans, all three of which I confess I indulge in to my shame), she suddenly brightened, like she just saw a picture of her long lost lover.  She turns the phone to one of the other passengers that earlier she had engaged in conversation with, sitting a couple of rows ahead of me, and showed him what she was gushing over.

You guessed it:  a dog.  Then, flipping the phone back towards her heavily mascared face, she lifts the screen to her ruby-red lips and kisses it.

The thought suddenly struck me that I don’t often see women—ever, as a matter of fact—kiss their children in public or gush over their pictures in public places, or show their pictures with evident glee and happiness to those around them.

Isn’t this strange, perverse even?  What vile turn have we taken in America where women publically fall all over themselves with dogs,  but yet rarely, if ever, show the same public adoration and affection for their own children (if they even have any)?

Truthfully, I find it revolting and revealing; revolting that a woman, the one time tender and loving caregiver of a family’s most cherished possession, children, now pour that love onto an animal that licks its private parts, has fleas, sheds, urinates and defecates in public, and consumes its own vomit.  Revealing because it is yet another clear marker that portends the unraveling of the American culture.

Think with me for a moment and see if I speak the truth:  how many pictures do you see on Facebook or the media that portrays pets, and how many pictures do you see that portrays kids?  I say without hesitation that there is an avalanche of photos about pets and a mere trickle about children.

And how about articles on the internet news about pets as opposed to those on children?  We are drowning in articles about “rescue” pets, pets getting their nails done, prosthetic limbs, dog and cat food, pet healthcare, pet daycares, pet hotels, Leo the Lion, ad nauseum.  Now compare this with articles about children and tell me something is not profoundly wrong in this country.

Speaking about Leo the lion…interestingly, Leo’s demise came right on the heels of the Center for Medical Progress’ expose of the macbre organ harvesting of aborted babies.  And who garnered the lion’s share of the attention from the media?

Where was the outrage from women over babies organs being harvested in a manner that would have made the Nazi’s bursting with pride?  And we know that if it was revealed that the organs of pets (especially puppies) were being harvested for medical research, the White House would have been burned down with Obama, the Senate and the House joining in the torching.

Our eyes need to be opened to see what is happening all around us.  And friends, it does not portend well for our future.

When “Christian love” becomes a vice—part two

My last post discussed what I consider to be a “Christian vice”:  extending love, mercy and forgiveness to people who utterly and absolutely reject it.

I read another article that crystallizes this absurd—even dangerous—idea.  This article, penned by Allan Erickson, concerns the mass shooting of black Christians in Charleston, South Carolina, on June 17, 2015, by a young, white racist who mercilessly murdered these people in a bible study.

Erickson writes:

“The members of that church personified Christ. They called for calm, peace and prayer. They extended grace to the shooter’s family, and even spoke the words of forgiveness to him…”

I agree with the first portion of the above paragraph; to call for calm, peace and prayer in the midst  of such heinous carnage is exemplary, which is far better than calling for the looting and burning down of the town.  And calling for “extended grace to the shooter’s family” is a further act of graciousness.

But then Erickson begins to slip into the common heresy of modern day American Evangelicalism when he writes of the members of the church speaking words of forgiveness to the shooter:

“Family members of those killed went on camera, witnessing the love of Christ, mourning their loved ones, and extending grace and mercy and forgiveness, even when none was requested by the killer.” (Emphasis mine.)

Where in the Bible do we find the Lord Jesus “extending grace and mercy and forgiveness” to a murderer when it was never requested?  Can you find one single Scripture, in either the Old or New Testament?  Was not repentence first required—even demanded—from anyone who would receive the unfathomable riches of mercy, grace and forgiveness from the Lord?

It is nauseating, even revolting, the depths that American Christianity has sunk to.   We cheapen the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and count His precious blood as a cheap commodity when well meaning but wholly deluded Christians can offer it so willingly to a depraved murderer that wants absolutely nothing to do with it.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German pastor during the reign of Hitler and who was a member of the failed plot which sought his assassination, wrote these famous lines:

“Cheap grace is the deadly enemy of our Church. We are fighting today for costly grace. Cheap grace means grace sold on the market like cheapjacks’ wares. The sacraments, the forgiveness of sin, and the consolations of religion are thrown away at cut prices. Grace is represented as the Church’s inexhaustible treasury, from which she showers blessings with generous hands, without asking questions or fixing limits. Grace without price; grace without cost! The essence of grace, we suppose, is that the account has been paid in advance; and, because it has been paid, everything can be had for nothing….”

“Cheap grace is the grace we bestow on ourselves. Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, Communion without confession…Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate.” (Bold mine.)

This “cheap grace” is nothing less than a heresy, a perversion, of authentic grace.  He contrasts “cheap grace” with “costly grace”:

“Costly grace is the treasure hidden in the field; for the sake of it a man’ will gladly go and self all that he has. It is the pearl of great price to buy which the merchant will sell all his goods. It is the kingly rule of Christ, for whose sake a man will pluck out the eye which causes him to stumble, it is the call of Jesus Christ at which the disciple leaves his nets and follows him.

“Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again and again, the gift which must be asked for, the door at which a man must knock. Such grace is costly because it calls us to follow, and it is grace because it calls us to follow Jesus Christ. It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life. It is costly because it condemns sin, and grace because it justifies the sinner. Above all, it is costly because it cost God the life of his Son: “ye were bought at a price,” and what has cost God much cannot be cheap for us. Above all, it is grace because God did not reckon his Son too dear a price to pay for our life, but delivered him up for us. Costly grace is the Incarnation of God.

“Costly grace is the sanctuary of God; it has to be protected from the world, and not thrown to the dogs. It is therefore the living word, the Word of God, which he speaks as it pleases him. Costly grace confronts us as a gracious call to follow Jesus. It comes as a word of forgiveness to the broken spirit and the contrite heart. Grace is costly because it compels a man to submit to the yoke of Christ and follow him; it is grace because Jesus says: “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Emphasis mine.)

Christians in America, if they preach anything, preach “cheap grace.”  This is manifestly exhibited in this article by Allan Erickson, no doubt a well-meaning individual but deluded by the innumerable adherents around him to the heretical doctrines of “cheap grace” that permeate our culture and which has caused our country to rot in immorality and wickedness.

Ultimately, the teaching of cheap grace is an attack against the holiness, sovereignty, and preciousness of the Gospel and the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.  We preach cheap grace to our doom as a nation.

When “Christian love” becomes a vice

“The American insantiy for Loving Everybody is ruining my good temper and delivering my stomach to enormous bouts with acidity.”

Taylor Caldwell, author

Imagine, for a moment, that you are a Jew living in Warsaw, Poland in 1939.  Suddenly, the Nazi invasion of your beloved homeland occurs at a lightning pace, and within two months your world is turned upside down.  Before WWII is over, you will have lost everything:  your city, your home, your business, and each member of your immediate and extended family.  You will have watched your family tortured, murdered and some of them marched into the gas chambers in Auschwitz.  

It will only be by God’s grace that you survived.  As a prisoner in Auschwitz, tortured and starved almost to the very point of death, you were within days of dying until the Red Army brought your deliverance in 1945.  You became a living skeleton and weighed 75 pounds, down from the 170 you were before the invasion six years prior.

Please be honest for a few seconds.  Would you love the Nazi’s?  Upon your liberation, would you have weakly shuffled up to the Nazi commandant of Auschwitz and whispered with all your strength, “I forgive you!  Jesus loves you and so do I!  God bless you, my friend…I will continue to pray for you that the Lord would bring you to Himself!”  And then, summing all of your available strength, would you have then reached up to him with your pencil-thin arms and given him a bear hug?

Probably not.  No, it might take you a lifetime and beyond to work through the hate, revenge, and all the other understandable emotions that accompany such a loss as you would have suffered.  Nobody would be angry with you for feeling the way you did…all, even those who were spared the brunt of the Nazi atrocities and lost no family members, would feel compassion and understanding for your unimaginable loss and suffering.

Why, then, are so many Christians falling all over themselves to love, embrace and accept members of the LGBT community, the very community that has just accomplished a cultural blitzkrieg over our nation on June 26, 2015?  These people are out to destroy Christians, Christianity, and our way of life, and they are bulldozing away everything we hold dear, all with the blessings and power of the Obama administration.  And all the while, Christians are stupidly telling them, “Jesus loves you and so do I!,” embracing them as they plunge sharpened daggers in our backs and the hearts of our family members.

For example, in this article, Christian author Michael Brown writes this:

http://barbwire.com/2015/07/06/0700-oregon-declares-war-on-the-christian-faith/

“I’m sure the Kleins would like nothing more than to forgive you to your face and give you a great big hug. Not only are Christians moral people, they are forgiving people.”  The Kleins, you will remember, are the Christian owners of “Sweet Cakes by Melissa” who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. 

Mr. Brown continues this distasteful “love fest” with the enemy in this article:

http://barbwire.com/2015/08/17/lets-pray-for-michael-sam/

Brown writes:

“Who knows what will happen if we pray that he will encounter the incredible love of God, that he will recognize his own sin and guilt (that’s the path for every one of us on the road to redemption), and that he will call out to the heavenly Father to have mercy on him. Who knows?”

Yes, in the grand scheme of redemption, the salvation of one such as that degenerate pervert Michael Sam would be wonderful.  It is theoretically correct that the most vile and wicked of individuals could be saved, and that the wonderful, transforming grace of the Lord Jesus is not limited.  But we Christians are missing something when we cheaply and so easily extend that grace to people like Michael Sam, as if the precious blood of the Lord Jesus and His death on the cross is a mere trinket that can be cheaply dangled in front of the noses of the most abominable sinners, who neither ask for or value it.

There is something distinctly distasteful with this feminine and over-emphasis on love and acceptance of people who desire only one thing:  to destroy us.  And, it is unbiblical and makes light of the legitimate sufferings and losses of others.  This “love gospel,” practiced by so many in America, is part of the false gospel known as “American Evangelicalism.”  

Brown presumptuously puts words, thoughts and feelings in the mouths of Christians like the Kliens who are at real risk of losing everything because of the militant actions of radical homosexuals and lesbians.  Maybe, Mr. Brown, Christian business owners who are being fined out of existence and are losing their livelihoods, unable to pay their mortgage and car payments, might not feel so forgiving and loving toward their enemies.  Should your words make them feel guilty?  Are they somehow less of a Christian for wanting justice done, to see these enemies of all things righteous and holy and decent punished for their actions?  What, Mr. Brown, do you think of these saints in the Book of Revelation who appeared to be a bit impatient with the Lord Jesus Christ for what they perceived was His slowness to bring them their justice over their enemies?

“They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”  Revelation 6:10

Of course, Christians who espouse this perverse form of love toward the ungodly have grown up in America where, for many of us, our closest interaction with tough living was agonizing over what flavor of ice cream we were going to have after dinner.  It is easy to spout meaningless platitudes towards others when persecution is measured by the degree of mean looks people give us when we hand them a gospel tract or invite them to church.

The truth is that this “love gospel” is part of the false gospel that has effectively brainwashed generations of Christians and caused most of us to be nothing more than neutered, chocolate soldiers in this battle for souls and against evil.  It certainly is not a part of New Testament Christianity.

For example, what do you think Jesus meant when He told the parable of the ten minas, found in Luke 19:11-27, and uttered this decidedly “unloving” statement?:

“But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them—bring them here and kill them in front of me.’” (verse 27)

Part of the problem with American Evangelicalism is our cherry picking of particular Scriptures without giving due diligence to the others which speak on the same subject, often giving needed balance and clarity.  I confess I often cherry pick myself, to my shame.  We are all guilty of the same offense, and wise is the individal who recognizes their weakness in this area and strives for balance and a well rounded understanding of truth.

In the above mentioned passage of Scripture, Jesus clearly—at least in my mind—is giving us insight on how His Heavenly Father will treat His enemies…His Father’s enemies.  And nothing is found here that anywhere comes close to the perverse “love bombing” of our enemies as glorified by American Christians.

Yes, Jesus did teach that we should love and pray for our enemies; I understand and accept this as a marvelous display of genuine graciousness, mercy and forgiveness.  But we err if we fail to also consider the other myriad of verses that seem to teach the exact opposite, like this one just mentioned.

How to we reconcile such apparent contradictions?  This will have to wait for another post, but suffice to say, to not consider the other passages of Scripture that points to what seems to be the exact opposite of “love your enemies” is to plunge oneself into some dangerous, irrational and illogical belief systems.

Consider, for example, Revelation 2:1-7, commonly known as the “letter to the church at Ephesus.”  Without going into great detail, I will point out—cherry pick—two specific passages:  verse two and verse six:

“I know your deeds and your toil and perseverance, and that you cannot tolerate evil men, and you put to the test those who call themselves apostles, and they are not, and you found them to be false…” (NASB)

“Yet this you do have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.” (NASB)

Notice in these verses the decidedly negative approach to the views of the enemies of the church at Ephesus that these believers held:  verse two reveals that the Ephesians could not “tolerate evil men.”  Not tolerate evil men?  But I thought American Evangelicilism was all about “tolerating evil men,” no?  Is is possible that Jesus had it all wrong here?

And it gets even worse, for verse six tells us that these Ephesian Christians actually hated the deeds of the Nicolaitans.  And lo and behold, even Jesus Himself hated these same deeds.  That’s a strong word, hate, isn’t it?  Such a word and emotion is hardly viewed today as a Christian virture, particularly among those members identifying themselves as modern day Evangelical Christians.

And when do we ever hear or read of such hate that Christians have for the deeds of the wicked?  Hardly ever or anywhere.  Certainly not from the average pulpit, nor in the typical Christian pop song.

And how intolerant those Ephesian Christians were!  And surprisingly, Jesus heartily commended them for their intolerance.  Obviously, Jesus would not be a popular speaker on any university or college campus today, especially those that receive federal funds.

America down the rabbit hole

For anyone still under the delusion that there is any hope for America, the continued unfolding of the freak show with Bruce Jenner should quench that fantasy.

By now, this infamous and grotesque Vanity Fair cover has been unfortunately seen by countless millions around the globe:

download

Matt Barber, one of the few writers who has an uncanny ability to correctly view things in their proper perspectives, has written an excellent article on this sad and perverse story, appropriately title, “One screwed up Jenner-ation.”  It should be required reading in every public school system that teaches students about so-called “LGBTQ” rights and issues.

I tired years ago of talking heads or pundits that claimed—and still claim— that “America is at a tipping point” or “the only hope for America is a revival.”  Even well-meaning Christians, who should know better, should be able to correctly discern the signs of the times and understand that no such revival will happen to prevent the complete and utter destruction of this wicked nation.

The die has been cast and we will surely reap what we have sown.  We reached the proverbial “tipping point” decades ago and corporately decided that we were not interested in conducting the affairs of this nation on God’s standards and chose to run it on our own.  Bruce Jenner is simply the mathematical fruit of that fateful decision and we will only be subjected to more of the same perverse nightmares that the willing media is only too happy to report on.

The senses of any moral-minded man or woman is repulsed by this sickening photo spread of a demon-possessed and mentally insane individual who actually believes he is a woman trapped in a man’s body.  And that a major magazine would chose to print such filth is simply another sign of the ever deepening moral rot that this country is joyfully embracing and stewing in.

Though I almost whole heartedly agree with Matt Barber’s excellent article, there is one sentence I take issue with him on:

“Bruce Jenner is worthy of pity and prayer, not adulation.”

I agree with the last half of this sentence, that Jenner is not worthy of adulation, but it is the first half I stand opposed to, that he is “worthy of pity and prayer.”

The fact is that Jenner and all who are like him—individuals, corporations, businesses, non-profit organizations, etc.,—who go to the great lengths and expense that he has to parade his perversion in the public eye, are not worthy of pity and prayer, in much the same way that the Nazi propaganda machine that sought to brainwash the German people into accepting and defending National Socialism was not worthy of anyone’s pity or prayers.

Jenner and his allies are enemies of the moral minded people of America and they are intent on destroying the very fabric and root of this nation, to dismantle Christianity piece by piece and replace our Judea/Christian heritage  with a pagan and demonic worldview that will enslave all of us and strip us of our rights, freedoms and liberty.

We don’t pity these people.  We go to war against them, because if we don’t, and I fear we have already lost the war, they will destroy us, our children, and our future.  And when they conquer us, take my word they will neither pity nor pray for us but will laugh and spit in our faces for our stupidity and foolishness for allowing them to subjugate us without a fight.

Jesus said it best in Luke 17:1-2:

“He said to His disciples, “It is inevitable that stumbling blocks come, but woe to him through whom they come! 2“It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than that he would cause one of these little ones to stumble.…”

Do you believe that Jesus wanted us to have pity and pray for those who cause stumbling to His little ones?  Yes, I’m sure some of my readers will quote Matthew 5:43-44; I could not argue with you.  But I have learned something from making the Bible an object of life-long study and contemplation:  all of us cherry pick from this wonderful book and take from it what we want, finding in its magnificent pages justification for our own beliefs.

But I have learned we must “take the whole counsel of God” (Acts 20:27).  And part of doing this is take verses such as this one into consideration:

“But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence.”  Luke 19:27

(Please take note that I am not suggesting that we kill our enemies; I am simply including this verse to prove a point, not justify a violent course of action.)

Few Americans, very few, understand what is happening in this country.  Fewer still have grasped the significance of the times in which we live and the reality that this country will never turn back to our Christian roots.  On the contrary, the majority of people are walking around wearing blindfolds and rose-colored glasses, naively believing that we are going through some temporary speedbumps and will eventually return to morality and godliness.

Nothing could be farther from the truth.  Believing such has been one of the greatest impediments to embarking on a strategy for real change, and that small window of time that perhaps could have been used to steer America back on track has been long lost.

May the Lord have mercy on America.  We need it now and will soon need it even more.

 

American dogs treated better than children

It is countless articles like this one that shows the ever deepening depravity of the United States of America.

This country cares more about dogs and cats than innocent babies slaughtered by abortion.

If you disagree with me, ask yourself this question:  how many news reports, advertisements, Facebook posts/photos and Youtube videos do you come across that talk about people’s pets as compared to the issue with babies being ripped apart in their mother’s wombs via “safe and legal abortions”?

Americans and the media are obsessed with pets.  Like this article from Tucson over a stolen puppy, you would think that with all the attention and press that pets receive in this warped country that animals are on the same level as humans.

Actually, they are.  And for many people, they are elevated above humans, especially if those humans live inside their mother’s wombs.

I find this pet phenomena disturbing, particularly when I compare it with the lack of reporting on this country’s systematic slaughter of our unborn children.

If you doubt my word about my choice of words, “systematic slaughter of abortion,” click here.  And here.  But let me warn you:  what you are about to see is graphic, bloody, violent, and disturbing…which is precisely what abortion truly is.

If you are brave enough to watch the videos at the above links, and it settles upon your mind that this is what is happening in our country virtually every single day of the year, for decade after decade after decade, perhaps you will understand my anger when I see the United States with its obsession with cats and dogs.

We are a nation that has fallen so very far from the lofty morals and ideals that once shaped us and made us the envy of the world.

 

Duggar disaster

By now, most people know of the train wreck occurring within the famous Duggar family with the acknowledgement from their oldest son Josh over molestation accusations.

Already, there are parodies and satires coming out, and as the facts pour in, it does not look good for the Duggar media empire that is beginning to crumble around them.

I have to main questions:  Did the Duggar’s reveal to the television network that their son Josh had admitted to child molestation before they signed the contract for what would prove to be their widely popular reality show?  Did the Duggar’s have a moral or even legal duty to disclose the crimes of their then teenaged son to the cable network before the airing of the reality show?

This is critical, because if the network knew of these serious charges before going into the contract, they obviously knew the risks they were taking if word of these damaging allegations and accompanying confession came to light.

But from what I have read, it appears the crimes of Josh occurred approximately two plus years before the Duggars show appeared for the first time on Discovery Health, “14 Kids and Pregnant Again.”

This raises serious questions in my mind whether or not the Duggar’s disclosed to Discovery Health the existence of their son’s known crimes or to TLC (The Learning Channel), the cable and satellite television network who airs the wildly popular Duggar series.

Many of the advertisers, though, are voting with their feet and have bolted from supporting the series, showing that this unfortunate and tragic episode for the Duggar’s will not leave them unscathed.

If the Duggar’s were simply a normal American family, a reasoned case can be made that says they certainly did not have any duty to tell anybody, outside of law enforcement, the victims and their families, that their son committed these heinous crimes.

But the Duggar’s are not your normal, American family…far from it.  They are celebrities and role models, revered and looked up to by many.  The Duggar’s, by appearing on the cable program, doing interviews, and choosing to be high-profile members of the Christian community, have set for themselves a much higher standard than what the rest of average America might be expected to abide by.

Please don’t get the wrong impression with my above paragraph that I am suggesting that average Americans are exempt from teenaged sex crimes—nothing of the sort.  I am referring to the responsibility that the Duggars have due to their celebrity and moral authority status in reporting this crime to the cable station that aired their series.

I feel for this family and for any family that passes through such horrific waters.  And for Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, the awful weight of responsibility that comes with being media stars will now fully descend upon their shoulders.  And when all the dust has settled, they may look back on this amazing opportunity to share with the world their family values (and not counting all the money and perks they have received) and decide it was not worth it.

America: A doomed nation

Many Christians are accepting the inevitable fact that the Supreme Court will force sodomy based marriage on the entire country next month.

But few are asking, “Why?”

This is a more important question, in my eyes, than the expected ruling, because understanding how the United States of America could come to the point where marriage has been redefined in such a radical and twisted manner is crucial to predicting the future of our country.

My personal viewpoint is that legalizing sodomy based marriage is nothing compared to the legalizing of abortion in the infamous Roe v. Wade decision in 1973.   But the legalization of sodomite marriage is a fruit from the same unholy tree that legalized abortion, which came out of the Supreme Court’s making prayer and the posting of the Ten Commandments illegal in public schools.

Why will gay marriage become “legal”?  Because God is in the midst of judging the United States of America, and His hand is in the very process of bringing this proud, greedy, materialistic, God hating nation to its knees.

Gay marriage is another divine judgment from the hand of God on this once great, God-fearing nation.  And the vast majority of Christians are not seeing this, choosing instead to hope that some great revival is going to sweep across the fruited plain once again and restore America back to her godly roots.

There is absolutely no chance of this happening.  None whatsoever.  We will fully reap what we have sown, and the destruction of this country is a mathematical certainty, as sure and predictable as the sun rising from the East every morning.

Christians are wringing their hands wondering, “How can this possibly be happening?” instead of correctly asking, “Why is this happening?”

It is happening because, I believe, God hates this country and is intent on destroying it.

Please don’t put words in my mouth; God loves His people, and there are multiplied millions of them in this country.  When I write that God hates America, I am referring to the blatant evil that permeates every nook and cranny and reaches into every corner.

He hates the court system that penalizes the innocent and rewards the guilty.  Look no further than the grotesque appeal system where murderers who have been found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt spend decades on death row as their endless appeals wind through the courts and the families of their murdered victims have to suffer and relive the horror of their loved ones death each time a new trial is granted and they are forced to once again testify.

He hates this same court system that will now legalize sodomite marriage and which will now be used to trample the rights of Christians everywhere, the very ones He used to bring freedom and liberty to the country in the first place.

He hates the court system that legalized abortion on demand and that has now allowed more than 50 million babies to be systematically slaughtered in their mother’s wombs.

Call this by its correct name:  the “injustice” system.

Gods hates the public school system that kicked Him out decades ago and now churns out atheists by the millions, teaching small children that “gay is okay,” religion is the cause of all the evil in the world, America was founded by secularists, evolution is a fact, creationism is a myth, abortion is good, and now you can wake up one morning believing you are now the opposite gender of what you were born and be classified as a “hero” and use whatever bathroom you “feel” like identifying with.

He hates the worship of sports and sports figures.  We are a nation of idol worshippers, but the objects of our worship cradle pigskins in their arms, hit golf balls, bounce basketballs, run around tracks and infields, and bulk up on steroids, while Americans pay them millions upon millions upon millions of dollars to “entertain” us.

He hates Hollywood, that bastion of wickedness, immorality, perversion and all things unholy, profane and satanic, an industry that has done more than perhaps any in this country—and the world—to engulf the people in darkness and stupidity.

He hates false religion, which means He might hate most of evangelicalism as it is currently practiced here in America.  Christianity in America, if it is anything, is big business.  It predominantly revolves around one main thing:  money.  Don’t believe me?  Turn on any Christian radio or t.v. program and listen for the inevitable appeal for “donations,”  “tithes and offerings,” ad nausem.  Walk into any church and wait for the plate to pass in front of your nose.  It’s all about money and Christ despises this and He is judging this country for turning His Father’s House into a “place of business” (John 2:15-17).

Christianity is full of charlatans, crooks, con artists and thieves.  From Benny Hinn to Joel Osteen and all their ilk in between, it has become impossible for most people to separate the sheep from the goats.  Even the sheep are stained by the greed, hypocrisy, sensuality, phoniness, and immorality that is so much a part of modern Christianity that they have simply become used to the stench of sin that permeates the air around them and have succumbed to it.

Money.  It’s all about money in America.  And the Church is just as guilty as Wall Street.  Maybe we are even more guilty because we should know better.

And I am just getting started, but time will fail me to delve any deeper into the problem in this post.  But please don’t lose sight of this one truth:  we Americans are in the midst of God’s judgment in this country, and it will only get worse.

God have mercy on us.  We will all soon need it.

Planned Parenthood gets a black eye

Some of my Facebook friends know of my longstanding lawsuit against the City of Tucson because they threatened me with arrest in 2013 when myself and some other believers attempted to minister in front of the PP clinic.

Though the lawsuit is ongoing (filed on or around September 12, 2014), research proved that the sidewalks in front of the PP clinic which were previously said to be “private,” have now been proven to be public, insuring our rights to minister there.

So praise God! For the first time in DECADES, Christians can now freely minister to the women and men going to these two clinics inside this private medical park for abortions. I was there yesterday with two other Christian women for this historic return to this medical plaza.

And Planned Parenthood could do nothing about it. Before, within minutes of us being there, they would call the police and the private security firm that patrols that area and we would be forced to leave. For DECADES this happened, friends, and now the harassment is OVER. They have received a huge black eye.

I can’t explain my feelings of joy and satisfaction over this incredible turn of events and hope to keep you posted with updates. If you wish to join us on these outreaches in Tucson, please contact me.

Is America facing God’s judgment?

The epic snowstorms ravaging portions of the East coast are unprecedented.  In the snow weary Boston, one man said this:

“It’s historic. It’s biblical,” the 62-year-old attorney said as he walked down a deserted street in the city’s Back Bay neighborhood. “I think we’re in uncharted territory. People just don’t know how to deal with the logistics of it.”

He had one message for Mother Nature: “Give us a break.”

There is no arguing that the United Sates is experiencing record breaking weather.  Simply google “record breaking weather in America” and you will see what I mean.

Is anybody asking, “Why?”  At one time in America, unusual calamities  caused the early colonists to call a “solemn assembly” where entire congregations of Christians set aside a time of prayer to seek God’s face for why they were happening.

I believe God is judging America, and His wrath and displeasure at the rampant immorality and moral depravity that has engulfed this nation is what we are experiencing on virtually a daily basis.

Skeptics could well counter by saying, “Nothing unusual is happening at all.  These bizarre weather patterns have always been a part of every country throughout their histories, and we are simply experiencing one of those cycles.”

There’s truth in that consensus.  “After all,” someone else might say, “how can God be angry with America when the stock market keeps reaching record highs?  We are enjoying the greatest standard of living in the history of civilization; how can God be judging us when we are drowning in blessings?”

All good points, but this entire feast of materialism, ease, and comfort that we Americans have been gorging ourselves on for as long as anyone can remember might be coming to an end.  There are signs of the upcoming famine all around us, and these signs have been signaling to those with “eyes to see” for some time.

One has to look no farther than the unbelievable and astonishing rise of “gay marriage,” soon to be legalized by the United States Supreme Court in a couple of months.  If you would have stated twenty years ago that two men or two women would one day be able to legally marry in our country, you would have been laughed to scorn.

Such a notion was so outrageous and nonsensical that none would have taken you serious…but this insanity has now taken such a hold that those who believe in “natural marriage” are the ones viewed as abnormal and twisted.  The rapid and complete shift in thinking is nothing short of astonishing.

Yet as the Scriptures clearly warn, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap. (Galatians 6:7).”  I can take some poetic license with this verse and write, “Whatever a country sows, this it will also reap.”

Too many in this country mock God, from the joke that sits in the White House to the frauds that go on “Christian” television and ask viewers to send them money.

And we would be deceived if we believe that we can mock Him and expect this long and seemingly endless gravy train will continue; we are coming around a bend in the track and the bridge is out.

 

 

When “Christians” lie for the sake of money

I remember when the book, “The boy who came back from Heaven” came out.  Since I never believe books or speakers whose authors purports to have gone to heaven or hell, I pay scant attention to them.

It came as no surprise, then, when this article came out saying that the book was a hoax.  Even less surprising was this comment from the article:

“You’re right, this whole story is fabricated,” Johnson recalled Beth Malarkey telling him. “[But] because the book was a bestseller, no one in the evangelical publishing industry wanted to kill it.”

This article raises disturbing issues within the “Christian” community, and in particular, the Christian book publishing industry that would choose to publish such an obvious fabrication in the first place.

I’m not a book publisher, but if I was, and someone came to me with a pitch for a book that revolved around someone who allegedly died and subsequently went to heaven or hell and then “came back” to tell about it, I wouldn’t give it a moments serious thought before declining the offer.

That is, of course, if I didn’t love money.

But the love of money appears to be a prime motivation for Christian booksellers in deciding whether or not to put out the trash that often riddles the Christian best-seller lists, like the boy who came back from heaven.

We Americans wonder why our once great nation is dissolving right before our eyes.  Here, in my opinion, is the reason:

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lamp stand  and it gives light to all who are in the house.…”   Jesus, Matthew 5:13-15

Christians are the salt and light of the world.  During the days when the Lord was walking upon the Earth, there were no refrigerators or ice available to preserve food.  Salt was used as a preservative to delay spoiling.

Christians in any society can, and should, act as a preserving agent on their respective cultures.  We should influence those around us to godliness, righteousness and moral living, mainly by the manner in which we live our lives.

But when Christians are no more moral than our non-Christian neighbors, our “salt” becomes useless, even worse than useless.  Our hypocrisy can actually embolden others to commit further acts of unrighteousness as they act out in anger and spite for our unfaithfulness and hypocrisy.

So Christians find themselves at this juncture in American society.  Steeped in our hypocrisy, our voice is irrelevant, even mocked, in contemporary culture.  As this so-called “Christian publisher” has aptly demonstrated by printing this stupid book in the first place, money takes precedence over morality.

If it sells, print it, no matter how immoral the decision in deciding to print a book that obviously could not be true.  Make your millions, then when the book is found to be a fraud as everybody knew it was in the first place, remove it from the bookshelves, offer an apology, and laugh all the way to the bank.

And we wonder why America is hellbent on destruction.

Fiat Lux: "Let there be light."
