Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

How The Penn State University Child Molestation Case Demonstrates The Existence Of God

Posted by Job on November 11, 2011

Make no mistake friends, God exists. God is real. Should you countenance thoughts otherwise, this case involving Jerry Sandusky and his committing unspeakable crimes of violation against a number of young boys proves it. This case demonstrates the existence of God by demonstrating the existence of evil. Now of course, evil is not some deity that is the opposite of God who contests God, as dualistic religions and philosophies propose. Neither is evil some force (whether personal or impersonal) as again some religions or philosophies claim, i.e. the “karma” of eastern religions and the New Age ideas that influence them. Instead, Gotquestions.org (a Christian ministry) provides a very suitable Bible-based definition:

A dictionary definition of evil is “morally reprehensible, sinful, wicked.” The definition of evil in the Bible falls into two categories: evil against one another (murder, theft, adultery) and evil against God (unbelief, idolatry, blasphemy). From the prohibition against eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:9), to the destruction of Babylon the Great, the embodiment of evil to come (Revelation 18:2), the Bible speaks of evil.

So allow it to be said, from a reverse-logic standpoint, that because evil exists – as the Bible clearly bears witness of – then God must necessarily exist also. Moreover, God must exist as the answer to evil, the one who defeats evil, which the Bible also bears witness of. Great, unspeakable, incomprehensible craven crimes against the innocent is evidence of the existence of evil, evidence of a great problem with our existence that must be overcome lest we be destroyed by it, and evidence of a solution to this pressing existential problem and threat that only God can provide. If there is nothing more powerful than evil save God, then God must exist. It is said that love is more powerful than evil. This is so, and the Bible bears witness that God is love and that God is loving.
‘Tis tempting to deny that the actions of Jerry Sandusky were in fact attributable to evil, which one might accuse of being some abstract idea. Instead, one can propose a more rational, reasonable scientific root cause: that Sandusky is simply disturbed, one possessing an abnormal brain biology or chemistry that causes him to both have abnormal urges and be unable to restrain himself from acting on them; that indeed he might have an inability to discern or respond to reality. Legitimate medical science has proven that such is the case with a number of people, indeed those that have committed monstrous crimes against individuals and humanity. And yes, the problem of evil must be explained in such a way that deals with cases as these, just as explanations are needed for such things as natural disasters, epidemics, and stillborn children that lack an identifiable human villain, antagonist or cause.

But in this case, one not need to consider (solely) Jerry Sandusky when it comes to evil. Instead, we have other figures with regards to this case such as Mike McQueary, Joe Paterno, and many other figures at Penn State University and the surrounding community who had knowledge of the crimes of Sandusky for many years and failed to act in a manner that would have punished the guilty and protected the innocent. These figures chose not to act because of the wealth, power and prestige associated with college athletics, in particular Pennsylvania State University football. 1 Titus 6:10 says “For the love of money is the root of all evil!” At other points in the Bible, the contrast between mammon – the desire for money, power and privilege – and the things of God are given, as are the people who seek the former verses the latter. Thus, even if we deny that Sandusky is evil, then the actions of those who chose not to act in the interests of those that Sandusky victimized and to protect him from committing further harm most certainly was! So the monstrous behavior associated with this case was clearly evil, and evil on this scale demonstrates the need for one with the power and desire to defeat it, and this need can be met only by God.

If God hates and can overcome evil, why does He suffer its existence in the first place? The reason is that the existence of evil was the cost of accomplishing creation. Only God is perfect, containing perfect power, knowledge and righteousness. Thus, anything and everything that is not God will inevitably come to a state of imperfection, and this imperfection is either evil itself, or allows for evil events to occur. So, though creation was not evil at the time that God finished it, creation did what was inevitable, which was lapse into an imperfect, evil state.

The Bible describes this occurring both with Satan in Ezekiel 28:13-19 and Isaiah 14:12-17, and with Adam in Genesis 2-3. The Bible states that both Adam and Satan were created perfect (see Genesis 1:27 and Genesis 1:31 concerning Adam and Ezekiel 28:15 concerning Satan) but that they both abandoned that perfect state of their own accord, through no fault or action of God and without being attributable to any flaw or defect in their making or original condition. God did not create evil, but instead evil was the inevitable result of creation. As God did not cause or force the actions of Adam or Satan, being responsible for creation does not make God responsible for the evil in creation.

That creates the question: if God knows all things, then He knew that His creation would lapse into imperfection and that evil would result. This means that God was willing to allow the existence of evil. Why, then, did God allow the existence of evil, even if He is not to be blamed for evil? The answer is this: God allowed the existence of evil in order to accomplish a greater good: for the glory of His Son. 1 Colossians 1:16 states that all creation was done according to the will of God the Father for God the Son. For God the Father to glorify, honor and please God the Son was the greater good that was accomplished by suffering the existence of evil. This can be put into better perspective when one realizes that though evil will only exist for a time, the exaltation of God’s Son that came as a result of creation will last forever!

It is easy to doubt and mock and say “God was willing to allow the existence of evil because it cost Him and His Son nothing; that His creation that He claims to love – including sentient human beings – had to bear all the negative costs and effects.” Now be not deceived: even were this so, it would be perfectly appropriate and within God’s rights, being that He is the sole Owner and Master of whatever He chooses to create for whatever purposes He chooses to create it. However, it should be said that this is not so! Again, it is not so that creation alone must bear the negative effects of evil; that God kept Himself unaffected and unscathed by such horrible events as what Mike McQueary saw being done to a juvenile boy by Jerry Sandusky yet refused to intervene to save the juvenile, though being a 27 year old former football player he certainly had the ability to. Instead, though He was by no means obligated or required to, God demonstrated the legitimacy and the extent of His love for creation by giving up the very Son for whose glory creation was accomplished in the first place to die on a cross!

You see, the existence of evil in creation was no mere set of bad facts. Instead, it was a situation that required a remedy. It created a debt that had to be paid. It was a crime for which something had to be punished. God could have remedied the situation by simply destroying creation, all of it, forever. But instead, God chose to have His Son, totally innocent and blameless of all imperfection and evil, provide the remedy by paying the debt, by taking on all the punishment upon Himself. God’s Son, Jesus Christ, did this by dying on a cross in place of creation. By paying this debt, this allowed creation – or some part of it anyway – to remain forever for the joy and happiness of God’s Son – who was resurrected from the dead – and as this same Son of God is forever the joy and happiness of His Father, this state of affairs is certainly appropriate. Thus, the logic of the greater good of allowing evil to exist for a time for the joy of God the Son and God the Father for an eternity becomes explicit, apparent and utterly reasonable. Suffering the existence of evil was a great price, but one that God was willing to pay with the blood of His own Son. Far from being the “cosmic child abuse” that some doubters propose, the truth is that God’s Son – also divine and one with His Father and with His Father’s Spirit – is a willing participant, is manifestly pleased with the arrangement, and benefit to Him (and His Father) far outlasts and exceeds (in value and duration) the very real and significant loss.

So whenever you learn of – or experience – any great evil, though you may and should mourn it, always remember: the occurrence of this evil does manage to powerfully demonstrate that God exists. So, remember that the God who does exists has already paid the price of evil – through His own Son on a cross – and will one day put an end to all evil forever. God’s creation will endure, but the evil will not. This does leave one final pressing issue: your fate. Will you be part of the creation that endures forever, providing joy and delight to God’s Son while receiving great benefits from this existence (and absent any and all negative effects or considerations) yourself? Or will you be included in the portion of creation that is destroyed when all evil is destroyed? The answer to this is simple: if you renounce and turn away from all of the evil that you have done and thereby represent and believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died to pay the debt incurred by your evil and was resurrected from the dead, then you will be among the portion of creation that remains. Otherwise, you will be among the portion of creation that is destroyed. (As time will no longer exists – for time is part of creation – the process of your destruction will take place in eternity and last for an eternity.)

For make no mistake, even if you had no part in this incident, we have all committed evil, if not according to our own standards, according to God’s standards. Though the debt incurred by your evil actions has already been paid for by Jesus Christ, the Bible makes it clear that only those who renounce their evil actions and ways and believe in Jesus Christ will have their paid debt applied. It is the same as having won a contest, but having to go present yourself and your ticket to those running the contest to claim your prize. Though your debt has been paid, one has to renounce his evil actions and tendencies and believe in the Sonship, Lordship, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ to have that paid debt “applied to their accounts.” In order to further explain and assist you in this process, please click on “The Three Step Salvation Plan” link below, which contains information presented in both written and video form. I entreat and implore you to do so – to heed and believe – immediately. Thank you.

Hollywood’s False Messiahs: Conditioning The People For The Anti-Christ?

Posted by Job on March 22, 2011

Not so long ago, I shared in the evangelical notion that “Christians need to be represented in Hollywood so that we can be part of the mainstream and use it as a vehicle to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and be salt and light in the culture.” But that was before discovering on websites like Vigilant Citizen, Secret Sun and others what a freak show that industry is. (Babylon? Mystery? The great harlot? It’s all there!) Do not be naive … the Christian powerbrokers that are always whining about not being part of “the in crowd” and want a piece of the entertainment industry action for themselves know this stuff already and have always known. Yet, they demand to be included in this great evil, and even claim that it discriminates against them! And of course, they withhold from their followers – Christian followers – the truth of what this industry is actually about. As a matter of fact, they denounce Christians who do their level best to separate from this stuff and minimize its negative effects as small-minded, anti-intellectual dangerous extremists incapable of effectively conducting ministry “in the real world.” Well, is this the real world? What about this? And yes, this does include a ton of prominent gospel/Christian music artists and prominent preachers, who work with and are intertwined with Hollywood and media, especially behind the scenes.

The fact that mainstream evangelical Christianity would rather join with Hollywood than oppose it notwithstanding, there is one theme in major Hollywood films that seems to be curious: the false messiah. Please recall John 5:43, where Jesus Christ says “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.” This refers to Jesus Christ’s rejection by the world as its true Messiah and Saviour, and the same world’s willingness to embrace false messiahs in His place. In the immediate term, Jesus Christ was predicting that Israel would reject Him and follow after such false messiahs who promised political liberation and a human kingdom as Simeon bar Kochba. Those false messiahs, claiming to have been sent by God and having God on their side, provoked the Roman Empire into destroying the temple and much of Jerusalem in 70 AD, and then to burn the entire city to the ground some 65 years later. Long term, however, Jesus Christ was referencing a series of false messiahs to come, culminating in the beast, the man of sin, commonly called the anti-Christ. How fascinating it is that Hollywood is using movies to prepare the way for the man of sin by releasing “entertainment” that conditions its audience for following him. Consider some examples.

Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader of the Star Wars films.

“Star Wars” is the product of George Lucas, who apparently is an adherent to the theosophy belief system (which is a combination of religious philosophy and mysticism). Anakin Skywalker was born to a virgin slave woman, was prophesied as “the one who would bring balance to ‘the force’” (a dualistic non-personal energy), and after a period of “temptation” by “the dark side of the force” experienced a sacrificial death to secure the triumph of good over evil, and had a sort of “spiritual resurrection.” He also had a forerunner, a John the Baptist sort of herald who preceded him in a death by martyrdom in Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Neo from “The Matrix” films.

“The Matrix” is a product of a worldview that is a combination of postmodernism, Marxism, liberation theology, eastern religions and gnosticism given to us by what used to be “The Wachowski Brothers”, but now consists of one Wachowski brother and another who underwent a sex change operation. (It’s like a freak show in your neighborhood! Freak show baby!) Neo saves mankind from an oppressive world order of machines (which stands for white people, technology, western culture, Christianity and capitalism) to bring in a new bohemian order. The coming of this “Neo” was prophesied by “the oracle”, who is a “goddess” figure that created him as an “incarnation” of herself to help her overthrow the (ultimately secondary) antagonist, “the architect”, a malevolent “god” figure.  The “god”, the “goddess” and the “messiah” wind up having to join forces in order to defeat their common threat, “Agent Smith”, a creation of the “god” who has become rogue, turned on his creator and become “Satan”, who wishes to create his own self-styled world order. This “Neo” was specifically not the product of human conception, but instead his physical body was the work of the machine order (“god”), and his mind/spirit, or soul, was the work of “the goddess.” In other words, Neo was “the goddess made flesh.” Morpheus served as the “John the Baptist” figure who paves the way for Neo. Neo dies and rises again (in the first movie), goes to a sideways underworld/hell (the second movie) and makes a final sacrifice of his life that secures the defeat of Agent Smith and a truce between the god and goddess (the last movie).

Sully from Avatar.

This is the product of the atheist environmentalist James Cameron, who saw fit to produce a movie that claimed to prove that Jesus Christ never rose from the dead. It combines Viet Nam and Iraq War allegories with promoting a generic synthesis of eastern, New Age and tribal animistic beliefs. In Hinduism, an avatar is the descent of a deity from heaven to earth, although it is more like an appearance or manifestation than a true incarnation, more akin to the theophanies of the Old Testament than Jesus Christ. However, since the introduction of Christianity into India, many Hindus have concluded that Jesus Christ was an avatar from their religion who appeared in Israel to provide spiritual and moral instruction and enlightenment, essentially assimilating Jesus Christ into their own religion. (In a more modern, secular sense, an avatar is a physical representation of an idea or personality. Note that many websites call the personalized picture that accompanies a username/account an “avatar.”) In this movie, the “soul” (mind/spirit) of Marine Jake Sully is placed inside a soulless alien body (which was created using genetic engineering in a laboratory, making the messianic figure not the product of natural conception) which “dies” (in a sense) when the soul of Jake leaves it but “lives” (or “resurrects” so to speak) when the soul of Jake returns to inhabits it. Sent on this mission to convince the (noble and enlightened) tribal aliens to abandon a tree that grows on top of energy deposits that just happens to be vital to the tribe’s Gaia-like cult, Sully instead converts to the religion, joins the tribe, makes his temporary and laboratory controlled “incarnations” permanent, and leads the tribe in an overthrow of the military-industrial complex invaders (who similar to “The Matrix” represent western, capitalist interests, our existing world order).

Aang from The Last Airbender.

Unlike the director of the other movies,  M. Night Shyamalan has a more traditional worldview and is old-fashioned by Hollywood standards in that he actually respects Christianity on some level (see Signs), has a negative view of the occult (see Unbreakable) and rejects postmodernism as it relates to evil (see The Village). Still, Shyamalan jumped at the chance to write and direct a movie that not only presents a false messianic figure, but aims its worldview at impressionable children. Adapted from a very popular Nickelodeon cartoon (and Nickelodeon was created and is owned by MTV Networks) it is an amalgamation of various eastern religions and philosophies, and depicts a world inhabited by humans, animals very similar to creatures described in various mythologies and religions, and spirits. Aang, the messianic figure, is an incarnation of the planet’s spirit component (i.e. an incarnation of Gaia). This Aang discovers that he is the prophesied avatar, and – reminiscent of the prophet Jonah – flees his spiritual calling and as a result winds up in the ocean during a storm. Aang “dies” when he is frozen in ice, is “resurrected” 100 years later, and as the last (or unique) representative of the “air nation” (analogous to  heaven) then defeats a penultimate evil threat: the lord of the “fire nation” (analogous to Satan and hell). Aang’s role is to ensure peace, harmony and world order, and as a human incarnation of spirit, he is a link or bridge to both.

It is amazing that these four films (or series of films), despite being made over the course of 30+ years by such diverse personalities and representing rather diverse genres can have so many common threads. It is rather difficult to imagine this being a coincidence.

  • All the films embrace eastern religions and philosophies.
  • All the films reject monotheism and organized religion in favor of a type of spirituality.
  • All the films heavily emphasize martial arts (i.e. karate, kung fu, judo, tai chi) including but not limited to swordsmanship. Make no mistake, just as Albert Mohler (and this own site) says about yoga, eastern practices like martial arts are part of the religion. So, the use of martial arts – often combined with other forms of weaponry and warfare, whether lasers in Star Wars or guns in The Matrix – makes the violent aggression in these messianic films entirely religious in nature, religio-military propaganda after the manner used to justify the Crusades, or in a more recent era the same religious-military propaganda used by axis powers of World War II (which included not only the occult militaristic religion of Nazi Germany, but also the state shinto religion of Japan) and the religious fervor whipped up by the George W. Bush regime and his enablers (no, it’s not just the Muslims who do it, not by a long shot!) during the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars.
  • All either reject – or fail to depict – capitalism in favor of socialism, communalism, bohemianism, tribalism etc. (Star Wars, The Matrix and Avatar are particularly vicious towards capitalism.)
  • All heavily rely on receiving enlightenment, or some form of “secret knowledge” as opposed to relying on authoritative revelation.
  • All on some level contain elements of there existing some common, shared or “connected” mind or spirit among humanity.
  • NONE of these films are anti-war or pacifist in any sense, but quite the contrary. More on that later.
  • Despite the lack of theism or organized religion, faith plays a huge role, especially among the protagonists.
  • The films go out of their way to depict racial and cultural diversity and “gender equality” (and this was rather striking in the 1970s when Star Wars was made) among the protagonists (who represent the new world order) while – with the exception of “The Last Airbender” generally depicting the antagonists as white males (representing the existing world order).
  • In each, the antagonist represents or at least bears a striking resemblance to our existing world order, and the protagonist represents a new world order (that again, shares the common points mentioned). This is the case whether the antagonist is the existing authority that gets overthrown (i.e. the empire in “Star Wars” and the machines in “The Matrix”) or is acting as a usurper (i.e. the fire nation in “Airbender” and the militarized energy company in “Avatar”).

Please note: I am not a Eurocentrist, capitalism/big business/war (Viet Nam or otherwise) apologist, or conservative of any sort. Instead, these are simply common threads that unite these movies. Is this the shape of the common, collectivist based (in religious, economic, social and political terms) society to come? If it is, then Christians might have to consider the possibility that reordering global society to fit this worldview would be a massive undertaking that may take quite awhile to pull off. Be that as it may, these films – and others like them – are most definitely laying the groundwork!

But back to the main point: consider a key difference between the false messiahs in these movies and the true Messiah, Jesus Christ: where the real Messiah is the Prince of Peace, the false messiahs are gods of war. Consider what Daniel 11:38 says of the anti-Christ: that he represents the god of forces. With false messiahs, this has to be the case. The reason is that the real Messiah came to provide spiritual salvation; to save people from their sins by dying on the cross. Jesus Christ didn’t have to pick up a sword and kill anybody to accomplish His mission, because His sinless life in fulfillment of the requirements of the law, His death on the cross to pay for sins, and His resurrection from the dead defeated death itself!

Unfortunately, the world rejects this successful mission on the part of Jesus Christ because the world rejects the idea that it is sinful; that it stands inherently guilty before a holy sovereign God that is Ruler and Judge. To it, the Biblical concept of sin does not exist (a la Buddhism and new age) or one can earn salvation from whatever idea that they do have of sin through works (Hinduism and some forms of shintoism). Either way, it does not recognize a need for a Saviour from sins, and therefore the Person and work of Jesus Christ is irrelevant to its concerns and a foolish offense to its desires.

So, the messiah, deliverer, or cosmic superhero must play another role, which is to save people from their earthly situation as opposed to their earthly condition, and this condition is generally that of oppression, poverty, war, etc. Of course, the root cause for the situation is the same as is the condition: sin. But the refusal to acknowledge that the root cause of political oppression, economic exploitation, discrimination, wars etc. is the sinful condition of humanity requires the one promising temporal deliverance to do so by picking up the sword, taking the fight to and overcoming “the other side”; the oppressors that are perceived to be responsible for all the evil. And make no mistake: Revelation tells us that the anti-Christ will identify the church (and possibly the Jews) as “the other side” that is at least partially responsible for all the world’s ills (just as the early church was blamed for political, economic and social problems in the Roman Empire) and it will be given to this anti-Christ to make war against the saints and to overcome them. Christians will be the evil empire in Star Wars, the machines in The Matrix, the energy company in Avatar, and the fire nation in The Last Airbender and as such will be the targets of the beast’s murderous military, economic, political and religious aggression. This will be to the delight of the citizens of the earth, who will be cheering the anti-Christ on just as did movie theatre attendants at the exploits of Luke Skywalker.

This will be because the church (and perhaps also the Jews) will represent the old world order. It will also be because of the church’s witness! During this time, the remnant will bear witness that the anti-Christ is no true deliverer but a fraud, and that the real solutions are not his program, but rather turning away from sins in true repentance and submission to the true Messiah who is Jesus Christ. Needless to say, it will not be a message that the world wants to hear. Similar to the early Christians who were persecuted often to death for refusing to worship the Roman emperor, such ideas will be considered “unpatriotic” (a fact which should strike contemporary Christians that are politically conservative with no small amount of irony) in the anti-Christ’s regime.

It honestly does appear that with these sorts of movies, Hollywood is providing a picture of the man of sin, and paving the way for his appearance in the process. The good news is that though the church will endure the great tribulation at his hands when he does appear, Jesus Christ will return to cut short the days of the tribulation, defeat the anti-Christ and those who support him, and rescue and vindicate His church, and an army of His saints will return with Him. If you are saved through Jesus Christ, you will be a partaker in this great victory. If you are not, then your only portion will be defeat and joining the anti-Christ in the lake of fire, the second death. Abandon all hope in false messiahs, repent of your sins, and join yourself to the only one true Messiah today!

JAMES DOBSON ENDORSES MORMON MITT ROMNEY!

Posted by Job on February 6, 2008

I first saw this here but it was confirmed in this devotional as well. Man oh man, I love this election season. So many prominent Christian leaders in the limelight are being exposed for what they are. From the people backing Huckabee despite knowing his connections to the Council on Foreign Relations and to apostates like Kenneth Copeland and John Hagee to Pat Robertson backing Giuliani to the MANY evangelicals and even some fundamentalists backing Mormon Mitt Romney to Donnie McClurkin and many other leading black Christians backing Barack HUSSEIN Obama (here, here, here, here, here, here) well the Lord is exposing for the whole world to see what these prominent Christians are really about and after – the things of this world.Christians, is this the falling away of the American church? If so, make sure that you are not part of that falling away. In a sense, things have been this bad for quite awhile, because the fact that Martin Luther King, Jr. was no better than a Mormon because he did not believe in the deity or resurrection of Jesus Christ despite it being commonly reported … so many people do not know because they do not care to know. And never forget: King’s rise was due to so many alleged Christians, many of them evangelicals and fundamentalists, supporting segregation and racism! Still, I regularly ask some older (than me) Christians have things always been this bad, and even the ones that personally experienced segregation and poverty say without hesitation “No, it wasn’t.”

***DR. DOBSON AND RUSH LIMBAUGH ARE THE LATEST TO JOIN THE “JUDAS GALLERY” !!! WWW.VOTINGFORSATAN.COM IS ONLINE!!! I’ve launched this new website — www.votingforsatan.com — not to tell people who to or not to vote for, but to help educate people on what Mormon’s really believe and hold accountable high-profile Christians who have endorsed cult member Romney’s bid for
the Presidency. The new site features an interactive section with
polls and a great message board where you can post your thoughts and
comments, news notes on the race for the White House, my numerous
Devotionals on Romney and the Mormon church, in-depth writings by an
ex-Mormon that clearly lay out the beliefs and theology of Mormonism,
as well as special videos including the TV program I did in the magical
Mormon underwear worn 24/7 by high level Mormons. Please check it out
and help me by telling everyone you know about this new site, and post
it on every message board and chat room you can find, especially the
sites that cater to politics.

“The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, prophesy against the
shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign
LORD says: Woe to the shepherds of Israel who only take care of themselves!
Should not shepherds take care of the flock? You eat the curds, clothe
yourselves with the wool and slaughter the choice animals, but you do not
take care of the flock. You have not strengthened the weak or healed the
sick or bound up the injured. You have not brought back the strays or
searched for the lost. You have ruled them harshly and brutally. So they
were scattered because there was no shepherd, and when they were scattered
they became food for all the wild animals. My sheep wandered over all the
mountains and on every high hill. They were scattered over the whole earth,
and no one searched or looked for them.” Ezekiel 34:1-6

A sad commentary on so many pastors and Christian leaders right from God’s
Word. Last week I was doing some study in the Book of Ezekiel. In reading
through some passages, I came across these first 6 verses in Ezekiel 34. As
I read these words, I could only think that this was the sad description of
so many pastors and Christian leaders today. 50 years ago, you could sit in
the pew of most any church of any denomination and hear the Truth of God’s
Word. Those pastors and the men and women God raised up on the national
scene were men and women who would never compromise the Truth of the Bible
and understood their only mission was to bring the lost to Christ.

Fast forward to the year 2008 and you have entire denominations of pastors
who don’t even preach, teach or believe the Bible. It is questionable if
many pastors were ever “called” and are even saved. Those who have risen up
into national prominence are more worried about selling books, having the
newest private jet, building bigger buildings, and living like the rulers of
small nations rather than preaching the unadulterated Truth of the Bible and
leading the lost to faith in Jesus Christ. My goodness, you now have
so-called Christian leaders who are endorsing and working for the member of
a satanic cult to become our next President!!!

When these are the men and women leading the people, why are we surprised
that many who sit in the pews of the nations churches on Sunday aren’t even
saved, don’t accept the Bible as Absolute Truth and our only authority, and
the majority of the ones who do lead weak and ineffective lives. That is
why I encourage people all the time to seek out a pastor who is a true
shepherd. That is increasingly difficult today, but there are still many
men of God who have not bowed their knee to Baal and are not the shepherds
described in Ezekiel 34. Sunday is the day most Christians go to church. It
is the only time most of you ever see your pastor, and that is usually from
your seat in the sanctuary as he leads the worship service and preaches the
message.

Having preached in over 500 churches of every denomination nationwide, I can
honestly tell you that for most pastors, Sunday morning is their favorite
day of the week and the one day they usually feel their work for God really
has some meaning. You can never know the pressure most pastors are under. If
it was only getting up on Sunday morning and being the “man of God” it would
be wonderful, but that is not reality. It is a 7-day a week, 24-hour a day
calling. Many have outside jobs. There is the constant pressures of raising
the budget, dealing with the interpersonal problems that always exist when
you have a group of people, overseeing the political infighting that often
occurs, on top of the spiritual requirements of shepherding the flock,
having an anointed word each week for the various services, and other
requirements the office of pastor carries with it.

My prayer for you today is to support your pastor. Pray for your pastor each
day. John 10 gives us the picture of the ideal pastor. Pray that your pastor
will be able to tear away from the distractions of this world to be the
shepherd described in John 10. God has placed that pastor in your life to
guide you, spiritually nurture you, and have spiritual leadership over your
life. Do all you can to show your love and appreciation for all your pastor
does for you, most of which you may not even recognize. Also, God has placed
your pastor in your life for spiritual leadership. When you come into times
of crisis, don’t hesitate to go to your pastor. That is ultimately why they
are there, to help you and guide you through those difficult times in your
life.

I love you and care about you so much. I pray for you daily. Sadly, today
there are too many pastors and Christian leaders who fall into the
description found in Ezekiel 34. It makes the work that much more difficult
when you have people running around calling themselves Christians, but
supporting sins like abortion, homosexuality, the destruction of God’s plan
fo the family. You have others who think there is nothing wrong with
belonging to a cult or false religions and they have bought the
universalistic lie from hell that everyone will get to Heaven.

Let this message today be a remember to lift up your pastor in prayer and
recognize him for all he does for your life. God has called His sheep to be
obedient and obey those in spiritual authority. Take inventory and see if
you are fulfilling this admonition, and ask God to help you. He loves you so
much, that he has placed your pastor in your life to shepherd you and guide
you in your spiritual journey. Show your love for Him today by praying for
and supporting your pastor.

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller bkeller@liveprayer.com

Big Trouble For Barack HUSSEIN Obama Based On His Church?

Posted by Job on January 16, 2008

Now a few months back when Trinity Church of Christ was being derided for being a black nationalist liberation theology outfit that does not preach the true Jesus Christ, the left out of their hatred for Jesus Christ rushed to condemn Tucker Carlson and the other attackers. As a matter of fact, I participated in a lively “discussion” on that issue the day that I started this weblog. But now that Hillary Clinton fans see their ice queen’s march to the presidency threatened by this Negro usurper, the white left begins to pull from the same bag of racist parlor tricks as does conservatives.

Witness this article from Richard Cohen of the Washington Post. Now Cohen is actually an atheist, but he pretends to be Jewish when it is time to launch political attacks at his enemies by associating them with anti – Semitism. Cohen completely ignores the huge Jew and Israel hating contingent among Hillary Clinton supporters to demand that Obama disavow his church because its magazine gave an award to Louis Farrakhan. Now Trinity United Church of Christ has been doing similar things for years. As a matter of fact, it is impossible for the leading black liberation theology church in Chicago, where Farrakhan has his home base, not to have praised Farrakhan and similar black nationalists. If Cohen didn’t care about it when Obama was elected to Senate and becoming a much – needed celebrity for the Democratic Party the past four years, he certainly doesn’t care about it now. Just like he didn’t care about the ties that Congressional Black Caucus and NAACP leader Kwiese Mfume had with the Nation of Islam. Mfume, you see, wasn’t running against Bill Clinton’s wife.

Of course, the goal of this is to put Obama in a no – win situation. First of all, associating Barack HUSSEIN Obama with the “black Muslim” radical Farrakhan reminds white voters of things like Barack HUSSEIN Obama having an African Muslim father (and stepfather) and spending a few years in a Muslim school in Indonesia. Now the Nation of Islam is every bit the pseudo – Islam as Trinity United is pseudo – Christianity, but Cohen (and the Clintons) are banking on your typical Nevada, South Carolina, Florida, etc. white primary voter not knowing this.

Second, suppose Obama chooses not to respond. The line then becomes that JUST MAYBE Obama loves Farrakhan and hates Jews. That brings the fact that Obama, for a host of legitimate reasons that I will not get into, is known to be more sympathetic to the Palestinians and less sympathetic to Israel than most prominent politicians from the backburner to the forefront. Now this has not been a major issue so far primarily because Cohen and the rest of the left have been far more willing to countenance anti – Israel and pro – Palestinian voices than in the past because of spite against the pro – Israel Republican evangelical Christians. (More than a few Jewish leaders, and not all of them liberal, have even found backing a Palestinian state and risking the almost certain destruction of Israel as a result preferable to having to thank evangelical Christians for defending Israel.) This makes support for Israel a prominent political consideration in the Democratic Party that is less than two years removed from running off Joe Lieberman again. The thing is that even if Barack HUSSEIN Obama does what is required of him, Jews will have to think long and hard about whether to support the “risky unknown unproven black guy from Chicago with the African Muslim name” or “stick with the safe proven fighter for Israel and Jewish interests Hillary Clinton.” Please recall: a major hindrance with Jews in choosing between black and white candidates is the fear that whenever black interests and Jewish interests collide, that the black elected official will side with his own people. Needless to say, no threat of that exists if the elected official is Jewish or Caucasian Gentile. And that was the point of Cohen’s rehashing the “black – Jewish coalition” during the civil rights era, to the point of stating rather hyperbolically “Martin Luther King, Jr. always stood up against anti – Semitism and for Israel” and the utterly ridiculous charge “Obama’s failing to speak out would be like stomping on Goodman and Schwerner’s graves!” Being a well educated black man with strong ties to the civil rights community, Obama needs no history lesson from Cohen, and Cohen knows this. Instead, its purpose was to send a clear message to Jewish Democrats – of which there are not a few especially in the key February 5th Florida primary that will basically make or break Hillary Clinton’s campaign as Nevada is expected to be inconclusive, she is toast in South Carolina and Georgia, and she has been forced to use up her best ammunition (crying, attacks on Obama’s SUPERIOR qualifications) – that the appropriate thing to do is to vigorously support and promote Clinton regardless of what Obama does, and that they can do so without guilt and with demands that there be no recriminations from the black community and demand that our leadership lie down and take its place behind every other coalition on the left (labor, feminists, Jews, environmentalists, homosexuals, atheists) just like always. Well consider that when a lot of prominent Jews such as Lieberman (and Cohen) started opposing affirmative action because blacks were taking too many college spots away from Jews and when they joined the right wing hatemongers to defend Jewish Ivy League student Eden Jacobowitz’s yelling “hey you black water buffalo, if you want to act like animals you should go to the zoo!” at black black students for the “crime” of interrupting his studying, the past sacrifices of those like Goodman and Schwerner were invoked to deal with any guilt over those issues as well.

Third, suppose Obama disavows his church, Farrakhan, or both. First of all, his doing so will not prevent Jewish political leaders from backing Hillary Clinton. Second, and almost as important, it keeps the race issue alive, and that always benefits Hillary Clinton. Doing it in a way that keeps Hillary Clinton out of the picture so that she cannot be accused of race baiting or benefitting from the practice? Even better! And in a manner that will allow the media – especially the many in the media (and have ready access to it) that are supporting Hillary Clinton, like Gloria Steinem, who made the ridiculous claim that wealthy white women like her have had it harder than black men, and got away with it because of black leaders so fear crossing swords with white feminists because they know who will win that battle in the leftist coalition EVERY SINGLE TIME to start the “is Barack Obama black enough?” and to start sticking a microphone in the face of every black primary voter in South Carolina asking “Is Barack Obama a sellout for denouncing the man who led the Million Man March?”

Anything that takes the attention away from the fact that electing Hillary Clinton would mean continuing the past 20 years of this country being governed by utterly corrupt members of the same two families that are actually great friends (please note that Bill Clinton did not prosecute George H. W. Bush over Iran – Contra and that George W. Bush did not prosecute Bill Clinton over Chinagate … if Hillary Clinton gets elected do not think that she will go after George W. Bush over his scandals) and support basically the same policies (click here to read “The Bush-Clinton Dynasty by Chuck Baldwin) is good for Hillary Clinton. So is not talking about how not only did she vote for the Iraq War, but her husband used the same rationale as did George W. Bush – weapons of mass destruction – for bombing Iraq during his impeachment hearings. So is not talking about how she supports the death penalty, three strikes laws, and welfare reform. Or how “the great Clinton economy” was nothing more than companies ripping off hundreds of billions of dollars – much of it retirement fund money – through the stock market on Pets.com schemes, and how the Enron scandal (and remember Enron executives contributed heavily to the Clintons!) actually began during the Clinton administration, and how the current mortgage crisis was created by lenders desperate to recover the capital that they lost when the dot.com bubble (that the Clinton administration encouraged every step of the way and even took credit for helping create) burst. And no, it is not talking about how under the Clinton the September 11th hijackers all entered the country and did their training all while our huge national security apparatus was monitoring them. That was why the attacks were attributed to Al Qaeda almost immediately, long before they took responsibility for them.

This is not to say that Obama would be any better on these or other issues. But these issues are compelling reasons to vote AGAINST Hillary Clinton. Everyone knows that Hillary Clinton will govern just as her husband did. As a matter of fact, she has actually used that fact as a major part of her platform (refusing to acknowledge that her husband is not nearly as popular as is portrayed, with most of his “popularity” due to dislike of the other side). Instead, her message has been “even though I am going to continue the same evil policies that have been disastrous for the country in every way as have my husband and both Bushes since 1988, my being the first female president would make it all different and better!”

The lesson for Christians in this incident is clear: do not be conformed to the world or the ways in it. Else you will be party to its wickedness.

Will Smith’s Remarks On Adolph Hitler Well Represent Liberal Christianity

Posted by Job on December 26, 2007

Actual Christianity teaches the total depravity of man, that mankind is born in sin. Liberal Christianity and Scientology (in addition to Judaism, Islam, and basically every other religion, ideology, belief system, etc.) teaches that man is basically good. So Smith states what pretty much everyone who is not a Bible – believing Christian holds to be true … that Hitler was basically good and could have been saved by reprogramming (or auditing or re – education).

Now again, all Smith did was speak what every other person that rejects the total depravity of man believes. It is just that for political correctness reasons, we are not supposed to apply that belief to Adolph Hitler. The case of Hitler requires them to suspend their ideology; to be situational in their ethics. Because Smith is a bit more honest than the average bloke (remember the mini – controversy that he generated in stating that the reason why a Hispanic actress was cast as his love interest in “Hitch” rather than a black or white one was because of financial concerns) he was willing to take this “man is basically good” belief to its actual implications.

So, you have the Jewish Defense League demanding that the man’s career be ended for simply stating what every person that rejects biblical Christianity and with it the total depravity of man believes. When you really think about it, these people really do believe that the only people that are going to spend eternity in the lake of fire are going to be Adolph Hitler plus a few other notorious criminals. The reason why man is unwilling to condemn anyone other than the worst of the worst as evil is because they know that if they go beyond that they are condemning themselves. People know the truth not only of their own behavior but the imagination of their own hearts: what they would do if they thought they could get away with it. But they deny the truth because because accepting the total depravity of man means that you will have to submit yourself to the sovereignty of God as your only hope. So long as the person rejects his own depravity, he tells himself that he will never have to bow his knee to a holy righteous God.

Friends, I urge you not to give yourself over to this self – delusion that man is basically good and only needs proper education and other methods of self – improvement. Acknowledge that you need the Savior Jesus Christ to wash you clean of your sinful nature with His own Blood! Accept Jesus Christ in your heart right now by following The Three Step Salvation Plan!

The Great Debaters: Never Trust Oprah Winfrey!

Posted by Job on December 25, 2007

Let me preface this by saying that I have nothing against Denzel Washington or Forest Whitaker, having no evidence that either has willfully set himself against Jesus Christ and His work. Oprah Winfrey, however, is another matter.

Did you know that Denzel Washington’s wife drops by Trinity Broadcasting Network’s “Praise The Lord” show for an appearance every now and then? Recall that when Denzel Washington said “God is great, God is good” in his Oscar acceptance speech that honored his playing an adulterous drug dealing murdering corrupt police officer so depraved that he was willing to exchange the life of his son for his own.

Remember the Denzel Washinton – Whitney Houston film of a few years back “The Preacher’s Wife”, a remake of “The Bishop’s Wife”? Over two hours long without a single mention of Jesus Christ (not surprising since it was directed by liberal Jew Penny Marsall of Laverne and Shirley) and had nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity in any fashion, unless your image of Christianity is an angel of God lusting after a married woman (who herself was more than willing to commit adultery with him if given the opportunity) and the ridiculous notion that it is perfectly fine for a minister’s wife and choir director of a church to sing in nightclubs (without bothering to evangelize anyone while there). Oh, but all was not lost … the movie DID take great pains to make a powerful brave spiritual moral stand against the great evil posed to mankind’s fallen nature by … smoking tobacco. Hollywood. You have to love it!

Anyway, I was already predisposed to oppose “The Great Debaters” because of its marketing campaign. The movie opens on Christmas Day, has a black gospel choir singing in the background, and the voice – over goes “come see a movie about the triumph of the human spirit.” Excellent way of using Christian traditions and elements to promote a movie that has nothing to do with Jesus Christ.

Still, I decided that it would be worthwhile to track the reviews of this film and see how they deal with the subject matter. That led me to Rupert Murdoch’s racist trash sheet the New York Post (speaking of Rupert Murdoch trash, Fox News had an hourlong “Christmas with Rick Warren” special on the other day), who tends to praise worthy black projects and people as some sort of superficial cover to the fact that they regularly bait the passions of the very sort of racists that kept late – term abortion supporting fascist (and leading Republican presidential contender) Rudy Giuliani in power for eight years to inflict the sort of brutal terror tactics on poor black neighborhoods that would have never been tolerated for five minutes in, say, the upscale party districts known for their wild parties where the cocaine and ecstasy flow freely.

This is what the New York Post has to say about the central character played by Denzel Washington in Oprah Winfrey’s “triumph of the human spirit“:

The vaguely roguish Melvin Tolson, who is very possibly a Communist, is also trying to organize migrant farm workers into a union. It’s this activity – which gets short shrift in an overlong movie – that’s actually more interesting than the rather dry debating sequences.

Tolson’s organizing gets him thrown into cracker sheriff John Heard’s jail at one point, and the atheist scholar is freed through a demonstration organized by soft-spoken but powerful theologian James B. Farmer Sr., played by Forest Whitaker in his best performance in many years.

So we have now reached the point where we open movies celebrating God – hating atheist communists on Christmas Day. So now you see precisely what “human spirit” the commercial of this movie was speaking of while the black gospel choir was providing the background accompaniment. Whatever this “human spirit” might be, it certainly is not the Holy Spirit, and as such those who go after it and deal with it can keep it to themselves.

As to whether one should go see this movie, which if the information that I have read about it can be trusted seems to have legitimate entertainment value and contains useful information (such as the black college debate team in 1935 Texas encountering a lynching on the way to a competition) I will leave that to people more qualified than myself (starting with those that have actually seen the movie) to judge and comment on.

Neuroiconoclasticskeptisiser Alert: Disney Film The Golden Compass Promoting Atheism

Posted by Job on November 27, 2007

liveprayer.com/signup.cfm

“Yet when I preach the gospel, I cannot boast, for I am compelled to preach.
Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” 1 Corinthians 9:16

The assault on the Christian faith continues in earnest, while some are
fighting back! There is a new movie hitting theaters worldwide the first
week of December to cash in on the Christmas season. This is a wonderful
movie geared to teach children there is no God and to indoctrinate them from
their earliest years to become atheists. The movie called “The Golden
Compass” is a movie adaptation of a book series by the atheist and a bold
and brazen hater of the Christian faith, Philip Pullman. The Golden Compass
is the first in a fantasy trilogy of books entitled “His Darkest Materials.”
Pullman’s books are designed to spread his atheistic beliefs to children,
and the hero of his story acutally kills “god.”

The movie version of Pullman’s book intentionally left out the Godless
themes. Many feel this was not only done to make the movie more accepted by
a mainstream audience, but in an attempt to create a hype around Pullman’s
books which are clearly written to teach children the Christian faith is a
myth, there is no God, and the church is an organization that tortures and
kills children. There is no doubt that if the movie does well at the box
office, sales of his books will sky rocket. For a complete review of this
movie and book series written by my dear friend Dr. Ted Baehr for
WorldNetDaily, go to: http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=58341

I am sharing this with you today for several reasons. First of course, is
to warn parents to keep their children away from both the movie and the
books. Second though, is to make the case again that in this dark, fallen,
and increasingly Godless world, Christians better start speaking up, better
start competing for the hearts, minds, and SOULS of men since that is the
real battle! While most Christians are too busy with their lives to care
about the world around them, tools of satan like Pullman are busy spreading
their gospel of death and destruction, and without conscience purposely
targeting children.

They understand the better percentage of 2 full generations have never been
to church, so they have virtually no resistance in lying to children there
is no God, Christians are weak and pathetic, and the church is only about
money and power. JK Rowling already proved how easy it is to reach children
with her “stories” glorifying witchcraft, wizardry, and sorcery, while
parents were either too busy to care what their children were reading or
actually helped in making her garbage available to them. Why would a parent
who has a weak belief in God or none at all, rejects the Bible as Truth,
doesn’t have a relationship with Jesus, and never goes to church, care if
their children were reading books that promoted atheism?

On the positive side of the movie theater aisle is the movie “Bella.” Bella
is a small, independently produced film that won the People’s Choice award
at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival. It isn’t riddled with sex and violence,
but is a wonderful story of life. It is about a young woman who finds
herself pregnant, contemplates having an abortion, but decides to KEEP THE
BABY! It is a movie where God is a prominent thread throughout and takes a
clear stand that life is precious. This is a movie families SHOULD see with
their children, since it gives you great opportunities as you eat pizza or
ice cream afterwards, to reinforce the powerful lessons of life this movie
portrays.

So my friend, the battle wages on. That shrinking minority of people who
love Jesus will stay away from “The Golden Compass,” while the masses flock
to it and then to the books. This movie and the books will only reinforce
in the minds of those who are growing up void of God that there is no such
being, that Christians are mentally unstable people who hate everyone, that
the Bible is a book of fictional stories, and believing in Jesus is no
different than believing in Santa Claus! This is the growing mindset of the
masses my friend, and now God-haters like Pullman are helping to
indoctrinate and reinforce these ideas in the impressionable minds of
children!

What can you do? KEEP SPEAKING OUT WHEN YOU GET THE OPPORTUNITY! Don’t back down at work, at school, in the gym, in the grocery store line. Rise
up and take your stand for Christ and His Truth. Why are those who follow
satan fearless and bold and never hesitate to state what THEY believe, while
followers of Christ are afraid and timid and will hold their tongue instead
of speaking out? WE HAVE THE TRUTH!!! GOD IS REAL!!! THE BIBLE IS THE
ABSOLUTE TRUTH WE CAN STAKE OUR ETERNAL SOULS ON!!! JESUS IS THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE AND NOBODY COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THRU HIM!!! Either you believe it or you don’t, and if you believe it, have the guts to DECLARE IT!!!!

I love you and care about you so much. A newspaper reporter recently wrote,
“Bill Keller says what many feel and would like to say, but simply don’t
have the nerve to or the platform.” I agree with that. I understand
everyone is not called to the marketplace to battle with men like Howard
Stern, the homosexual activists, those who promote the false religion of
Islam, those who aggressively promote atheism, members of the cults like
the Mormons, the JW’s, the Scientologists, the Masons, Kabbala, and others.
We all have our calling. God has called me to the front lines to battle
these tools of satan with His Truth and the eternal hope we have in a
personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Listen, I could have easily built a huge Christian organization over these
past years. I could have a staff of hundreds, a new glass building, a new
Gulfstream, mansions, new luxury cars. All I had to do was play the same
politically correct game everyone else is playing, target my message to
those who I know will agree with it, don’t offend people by warning them
they will die and go to hell without Jesus, compromise the absolutes of the
Bible when it makes good business sense, and play the political games to be
in the right circles. Trust me my friend, I could easily do ALL of that and
build a nice personal empire. BUT I AM NOT HERE TO BUILD MY KINGDOM, BUT
GOD’S. THIS ISN’T ABOUT BILL KELLER, IT IS ABOUT THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN.

John the Baptist preached in the wilderness, I preach out of the back of a
used car lot. I am shunned by the religious establishment of the day
because I refuse to play their games. Those who have become “leaders” by
virtue of their building big organizations simply dismiss me as some fringe
loudmouth in Florida who doesn’t get it. No, I do get it. I don’t get
these “men of God” whose motivation is the mammon and temporary pleasures
and power of this world rather than the souls of men. But that is OK since
when I take my last breath, it won’t be any of those men who I will stand
before, it will be God Himself! When I lay my head down for the few hours
of sleep I get each night, it is God who I have to be at peace with.

I challenge you today. For those who love the Lord and have committed your
life to Him, GET BUSY SERVING HIM! Now more than ever God needs His
children busy about His business. I know we have all been called to serve
Him in different ways. Some God has blessed with great positions in the
business community, others with lots of resources. I can only ask you to
pray about helping me. I am willing to put my life literally on the line
for the Gospel, to take His Truth to the heart of where satan operates in
the secular TV arena as well as aggressively and interactively on the
Internet. I have nothing but my faith. My wife and I live month to month
by the grace of God. I am only able to bring God’s message of hope and
everlasting life through Jesus because of the prayers and sacrifice of so
many friends like yourself. So while you pray about how you can serve the
Lord each day, also pray about how you can help me as we take our bold and
visible stand for Christ in the marketplace each day. Together, we have, we
are, and we will continue, to make an impact for Christ!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller bkeller@liveprayer.com

Christianity Is Now Seen As Most Extreme Religion

Posted by Job on November 12, 2007

TUESDAY NIGHT, I WAS PART OF AN HOUR-LONG TV PROGRAM THAT AIRS ON HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY (TAMPA, FL) COMMUNITY ACCESS TELEVISION. ON THE PROGRAM WITH ME WAS THE INFAMOUS TAMPA STRIP CLUB OWNER AND AVOWED ATHEIST JOE REDNER (my note: Joe Redner is a crony of Paula and Randy White) AND THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE TAMPA CHAPTER OF CAIR, AHMED BEDIER. BEDIER WAS THE MAN LEADING THE CHARGE TO INTIMIDATE CBS INTO CANCELING THE LONG RUNNING LIVEPRAYER LATE NIGHT PROGRAM TO SILENCE ME FROM TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT THE FALSE RELIGION OF ISLAM. http://www.liveprayer.com/tbt1.cfm

MANY ASKED WHAT WOULD BE GAINED BY GOING ON A COMMUNITY ACCESS TELEVISION PROGRAM THAT ONLY A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE WATCH WITH TWO MEN WHO DESPISE ME AND LIVE THEIR LIVES REJECTING THE TRUTH OF THE BIBLE AND FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. IN ADDITION TO PLANTING SEEDS IN THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO WOULD BE WATCHING, IT WAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE A STAND FOR GOD’S TRUTH IN THE PUBLIC ARENA THAT MOST CHRISTIANS HAVE ABANDONED AND CONFRONT THE FALSE AND EVIL BELIEFS OF REDNER AND BEDIER. YOU CAN WATCH THE COMPLETE HOUR PROGRAM AT: http://www.liveprayer.com/tbt1.cfm

In 2007, the Christian faith is now seen by most to be “extreme” and a faith that is “against” everything. When I preach in churches or at events, people love that my messages are rarely longer than 20-30 minutes. I have one key topic, I hone in on it, hit it hard, and than challenge the listeners. However, today’s topic is an issue I could pull a Paul and preach about all night long. In this nation, the Christian faith is now seen as “extreme.” We are best known for being a faith that is “against” everything. This has been an effective way the non-believing world has found to intimidate Believers into silence and keep them out of the marketplace. Sadly it has worked!

Why are we called extreme? We believe the Bible to be God’s inspired, inerrant Word representing Absolute Truth and our final authority in all matters. Based on God’s Word that it is the ONLY Truth, it makes all of the other religions, belief systems and philosophies false. Based on God’s Word, it means those who deny faith in Jesus Christ will go to hell. I’m not the one who calls all of the other religions and philosophies in the world false, God is! I’m not the one who has determined who will go to Heaven and hell, God already did!

I get so sick and tired of hearing nonbelievers, and INFURIATED when I hear Believers say, “Who are you to call someone’s religion false? Who are you to tell someone that they will be going to hell?” I DIDN’T, GOD DID! IT IS IN THE BIBLE! EITHER WHAT GOD SAID IS TRUE OR IT ISN’T. THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUTH, GOD’S! THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO BE SAVED, FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST! THAT MEANS THE OTHER RELIGIONS AND PHILOSOPHIES ARE A LIE AND THAT ANYONE WHO DOES NOT ACCEPT CHRIST BY FAITH WILL DIE AND GO TO HELL! GOD SAID IT, NOT BILL KELLER!

We are also seen by the nonbelieving world around us as the faith who is against everything. We are against homosexuality. We are against people living together outside of marriage. We are against a woman being able to choose to kill her baby. We are against this and against that. Again, it is not us that is against these things, it is God! We didn’t dream up a list of things to be against, they come from the pages of the Bible! We are simply taking a stand against the things God is against and calls sin in the Bible.

Because this world we live in has rejected God, the Truth of the Bible, and faith in Jesus Christ, they have been successful in labeling Christians as extreme. In the United States just 50 years ago, Christianity was considered mainstream. In a single generation it has gone from being mainstream to extreme. It is a faith that has gone from being loved to reviled, accepted to ridiculed. How did that happen? Gutless and compromised spiritual leaders! The flock is only as good as their shepherd. There are too many pastors and those God called to spiritual leadership who have compromised their calling by denying the Truth of the Bible or by getting caught up in building their own kingdom instead of God’s Kingdom.

The liberal theology that has crept into the church over the past 40 years is why you now have so-called churches condoning and glorifying gross sins like homosexuality and abortion. That can only happen when you deny the Truth of the Bible like so many churches now do. The heart of the church is God’s Word, and when you deny what the Bible truly is, that church is no better than the local strip club! You also have too many pastors and leaders who are more worried about the temporal pleasures of this world than the eternal work of the Kingdom. Gutless pastors who proudly proclaim on nationwide television they don’t preach about sin. Supposed men of God who are more worried about selling books than saving souls. Men and women of God who rather than taking the Gospel to the world that needs it, hide in the “Christian trough” preaching to the choir so they can buy a new private jet, a 5th mansion, build bigger buildings!

So it is no wonder why so many men and women who know the Lord go to work, go to school, play sports, are involved in different hobbies, face people every day out in the marketplace, and will NEVER even admit to being a Christian, let alone take a stand for Christ and the Truth of the Bible! They are petrified at being called intolerant, hateful, extreme, a bigot, and ridiculed, scorned, and abused for being a follower of Christ and standing up for the Truth of God’s Word in a group of non-believers. So they simply shut up, INTIMIDATED INTO SILENCE! Why are sinners who serve satan so bold and vocal in declaring their lies while the children of God who possess the only Truth there is sit back in silence???

Is there a price to pay for speaking up for Christ? Absolutely!!! The cold hard reality is that few pastors and very few Christians are willing to pay that price. So why are we surprised we now live in a nation that mocks our faith, ridicules us for our beliefs, and continues to do everything they can to eliminate God, the Bible, and our Lord from even being mentioned in the public square! Look at what happened to Paul for taking his stand for the Lord. He was nearly killed many times before being martyred. Thrown in jail. Despised and hated everywhere he went. HE DIDN’T CARE! HE UNDERSTOOD IT WASN’T HIM THEY HATED, IT WAS CHRIST. Look at the Old Testament prophets. Same thing. The people hated them because of the message they delivered from God. Look at Steven in Acts 7. Literally stoned to death for simply declaring the Gospel. How many countless men and women over the ages have literally died for their faith!

Is there a price to pay for speaking up? Yes and the simple fact is, most won’t pay it even though Jesus paid it all for them!!!

That was what the program Tuesday night was about. Speaking up for the Truth. As I sat between Redner and Bedier, separated by only a few inches, I made this observation. On my left was Redner, simply an empty shell. His life is tied up in being Joe Redner, the owner of a popular Tampa strip club and a self-professed anarchist and atheist. He is truly a sad man who has adopted these lies from hell to justify selling women and in the process, has literally sold his soul to satan. An empty shell with a hard heart that will die and burn in hell unless that granite-hard heart is softened and he turns to Jesus.

There is really nothing more to say about Redner. As you will hear on the program, he is simply a typical fool who says there is no God, of course has rejected the Bible, and does not believe in Jesus as his Savior. We have dealt with atheism often. All I can do is ask you to pray for Joe. Jesus died for his sins just like he died for yours and mine. I pray daily and I know many in this area do, that Joe will come to know Jesus. With God, all things are possible.

On my right was Bedier, a man who is the epitome of pure evil. I can say without any hesitation that if this man could get away with it, he would take a sword, cut off my head, never even blink or think twice about it, and go eat dinner. I do pray for Bedier each day. Even though I have no doubt this man would like to see me dead, God loves him and wants to see him repent and turn from this false religion and to faith in Christ. The Bible says we are to pray for our enemies, to love them, and while that is not possible in the flesh it is possible in the strength God can give us. So please pray for this man to come to know Jesus as his personal savior.

Ahmed Bedier is an advocate for a false religion of hate and death that is empowered by satan himself. He calls me a bigot and what I say hate speech because I have the audacity to tell people the truth about the false religion of Islam. He takes great offense to the fact I cite from the very writings of Islam that Mohammed was a murdering pedophile. When I asked him numerous times to deny that he wasn’t, he went into a long diatribe about how he was the head of state and in that capacity he did kill people He admitted it! He also admitted he took a wife at the age of 6, but added that she may have been 18. The writings of Islam say that this girl was 6 when he married her and 9 when he had sex with her to consummate the marriage.

You will see as the program continues, Bedier’s personal attacks on me became more intense. Saying often I was a convicted felon, which of course I pointed out was a great 20-year old story of God’s grace that over 30 million people worldwide have heard over the past 2 decades. He of course used the same tired stereotypes that I only do this for money. He said I was not only Islamophobic, but an anti-Semite for telling Jews they will go to hell without Jesus, and anti-Mormon for telling Mormons they are part of a satanic cult. He is the typical bully who is used to people being intimidated and backing down, not fighting back!

That is my message to you today! Don’t let these bullies of the world, the homosexuals, the Muslims, the Mormons, the atheists, or anyone else, intimidate you into silence! FIGHT BACK! Why are they allowed to speak and we aren’t? Why do you think you have airports every day adding footbaths to accommodate Muslims who can’t wash their feet and pray at home, but have to do that at the airport now! Why do you think we will be having many school NOT celebrating Christmas because it offends Muslims and other false religions and those who deny God even exists? GUTLESS PASTORS, GUTLESS CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE BEEN BULLIED AND INTIMIDATED INTO SILENCE!!!

I love you an care about you so much. They took a few live calls on the program and you will hear one that epitomized why I was there and what I am sharing with you today. The woman clamed to be a Christian and was lambasting me for being such a poor representative of Christ. She said she had many friends who where Muslims. I asked her if she had loved her friend enough to tell them they would die and go to hell without Jesus. She said that was not for her to decide. She is right, it isn’t up to her or me or you, it is up to God. This just in, HE ALREADY DID! IT IS IN THE BOOK! YOU EITHER BELIEVE THE BIBLE OR YOU DON’T! IF YOU ARE A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST, YOU ARE AUTOMATICALLY A FOLLOWER OF THE BIBLE!!!

The other comment I hear often and it was brought up over and over on the program, is that I am not acting like Jesus. They say Jesus would never tell people they were gong to hell. Really? I LOVE people who have rejected Jesus, don’t even believe Jesus is who He is, but love to use Jesus as their example. I reminded them of the fact it was for telling the Truth about who He was that Jesus was put to death. It was Jesus who said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, and NOBODY comes to the Father but through me.” That pretty much eliminates all of the false religions and cults in the world and means the ONLY way to be saved is through faith in Jesus Christ, if you believe what Jesus said! I also believe Jesus in speaking to Nicodemus in John Chapter 3 talked about people NOT PERISHING but have everlasting life if they believed in Him!

JESUS LOVED PEOPLE ENOUGH TO TELL THEM THE TRUTH ABOUT THEIR ETERNAL SOULS, AND IF YOU REALLY WANT TO BE LIKE JESUS, YOU WILL LOVE PEOPLE ENOUGH TO TELL THEM THE TRUTH THAT THEY WILL DIE AND GO TO HELL FOR ALL ETERNITY UNLESS THEY ACCEPT HIM INTO THEIR HEARTS AND LIVES BY FAITH!

I want to challenge you and encourage you today to take some time and pray. Pray and ask God how you can be more bold in sharing your faith with others. Pray and ask God to give you the opportunities to take a real stand for Him and for His Truth in the midst of this unbelieving world. The reason we see unbridled sin loose in our world today is that those who know the Lord and His Truth have been intimidated into silence and WE have allowed sin to take over. Over the course of one generation in this country, we have went from being right to wrong in the eyes of the masses. People no longer hold the Bible to be what it is, God’s Truth for men to live by, and people like myself who go into the public arena to share that Truth now look like the extremists while those who hold to other beliefs look normal. THE TRUTH HAS BEEN EXCHANGED FOR THE LIE EXACTLY AS THE BIBLE SAID WOULD HAPPEN IN THE LAST DAYS!

I know that every day men plot to destroy Liveprayer.com. We have two full-time employees whose full time job is to deal with all of the targeted attacks on our Internet infrastructure designed to wipe us off the Internet. Tools of satan like Bedier have been working tirelessly since day one to eliminate the Liveprayer TV program, and those attempts have only become more focused as the years have gone on. Based on the number of death threats I receive each month, I know there are people out there who want to permanently silence my voice. I have been telling you for over 8 years now that simply sharing the Truth of God’s Word in the public square will one day soon be against the law. This is why I am so passionate about what I do each day. Every day I am alive, every day Liveprayer.com is online, every day we do a TV program, the Truth of the Word is being heard by this lost and hurting generation around the world and people are finding everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ.

For those who still haven’t figured it out yet, this is not about Bill Keller, it is about Jesus Christ. I don’t do this for money or fame or I would be doing what most the high profile ministers do. I live month to month depending on God to move on people’s hearts to support His work here and my fame is amongst those who hate the Truth and want to see me dead. But that is OK since I know God will watch over me just like He watched over Paul, the Old Testament prophets, and so many others over the years. He will not let anything happen to me until my work here is complete. So my only job each day is to be obedient and faithful to that work. Part of that work is to challenge and motivate you to rise up and take your stand for Christ and let your voice be heard. Jesus said, “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”
