4 And 6 Year Old Boys Being Accused Of Sexual Harassment In Government Schools

Posted by Job on April 3, 2008

The 4 year old was accused by a teacher’s aide after HE HUGGED HER! My first thought it is that it is an attempt by government education to instill fear into little boys, to make them ashamed of being heterosexual from an early age. In defense of the schools, however, many say that their hands are tied because of court decisions, lawsuits, and district policies. Still, some of this makes me question the motives of the people that file these lawsuits, institute these policies, and go into education in the first place. For instance, if you don’t want little boys hugging you, why on earth would you become a teacher’s aide?

See link: For Little Children, Grown-Up Labels As Sexual Harassers

Update: here is the link to the case of the 4 year old accused of sexual harassment for hugging. Surprise … it was also at a government facility.

More Evidence That Abortion Causes Mental Illness!

Posted by Job on March 16, 2008

Another reason babies should not be killed.

Royal college warns abortions can lead to mental illness

Women may be at risk of mental health breakdowns if they
have abortions, a medical royal college has warned. The Royal College
of Psychiatrists says women should not be allowed to have an abortion
until they are counselled on the possible risk to their mental health.

This overturns the consensus that has stood for decades that the
risk to mental health of continuing with an unwanted pregnancy
outweighs the risks of living with the possible regrets of having an
abortion.

They desire to warn women about mental health issues, but everyone
should know that God has never enjoyed seeing a nation murder innocent
babies.

Jeremiah 22:3 (New American Standard Bible)

3 ‘Thus says the LORD, “Do justice and righteousness,
and deliver the one who has been robbed from the power of his oppressor
Also do not mistreat or do violence to the stranger, the orphan, or the
widow; and do not shed innocent blood in this place.

The Lord Jesus will judge Psalm 110 [click to expand link], faith on Him for the remission of sin is the only hope anyone has (John 3:13-21) and baby murder goes against His commandments. Follow the Lord Jesus, to the glory of God the Father.

REV. OPRAH WINFREY IS A SPIRITUAL CRACK DEALER!

Posted by Job on March 3, 2008

liveprayer.com/signup.cfm

(Deuteronomy 13:5; Isaiah 9:15)

***SEE BILL KELLER’S APPEARANCE ON NEIL CAVUTO’S FOX NEWS CHANNEL PROGRAM FROM FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 29TH: liveprayer.com/fox022908.cfm

***MOST PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THE SHELTER OF THE FOUR WALLS OF THEIR CHURCHES HAVE NO CLUE HOW BAD IT IS IN THE MARKETPLACE.  SADLY, I HAVE FOUND TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE SO WRAPPED UP IN THEIR OWN LIVES THEY DON’T REALLY CARE ABOUT THE MASSES GOING TO HELL EACH DAY.  EVEN WORSE ARE MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD WHO SHOULD CARE, BUT OBVIOUSLY DON’T SINCE THEY SPEND THEIR TIME PREACHING TO THE CHOIR SO THEY CAN SELL THEIR BOOKS, FILL UP THEIR EVENTS, AND GENERATE
MORE MONEY.  WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS, THERE WILL BE YOUR HEART.  I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MUCH HEAT I HAVE TAKEN OVER THE YEARS FOR GOING IN THE NATIONAL MEDIA TO EXPOSE OPRAH FOR WHAT SHE IS ,  A GREEDY WOMAN MAKING MILLIONS SELLING PEOPLE THE “SPIRITUAL CRACK” OF THE DAY.  READ A TYPICAL EMAIL I HAVE BEEN RECEIVING AND MAYBE YOU WILL UNDERSTAND MY PASSION!

“Dear Mr.  Keller, I am responding to your recent comments on the Fox News Network
regarding your opinion that Oprah is the “most dangerous woman in the
world.”  I am a “Course in Miracles” student for some time now, a student of
the “We are All One” philosophy.  I was born and raised a Christian, but
have in the past several years found much strength and faith in the belief
that we are all from the same God.  I am puzzled regarding your comments,
since I am of the belief that one need not be a Christian to get to heaven.
It appears that your strong public opinions create more divisiveness on this
troubled planet at a time when we need to become more united…that is all
humanity, everywhere, united in LOVE with the same God.  I have found in my
exploration of spirituality that I have gained much more peace than I ever
found in my Christian based religion.”

Oprah is selling “spiritual crack” and leading millions of souls to hell!
After finding great success pushing the New Age agenda over the years on her
TV program, New Age witch Oprah Winfrey is now clearly committing her vast
resources to lead millions of unsuspecting souls to hell selling them the
“spiritual crack” of the day, New Age teachings.  Just like crack, these
false teachings make people feel good for a moment but lead them on a path
of destruction.

Earlier this year, Oprah began teaching a year-long course on her XM
Satellite radio channel, “A Course in Miracles.”  A Course in Miracles is
allegedly “new revelation” from “Jesus” to help humanity work through these troubled times.
This “Jesus”-who bears no doctrinal resemblance to the Bible’s Jesus Christ-began delivering his channeled teachings in 1965 to a Columbia University Professor of Medical Psychology by the name of Helen Schucman. (My note: this is eerily similar to Frank Peretti’s character Juleen Langstrat of “This Present Darkness.)

Her latest venture in New Age teachings will be a 10 week seminar over the
Internet beginning tonight when Oprah and best selling New Age author
Eckhart Tolle will be teaching from his new book, “A New Earth, Awakening
Your Life’s Purpose.”  Over 1 million people have already signed up for this
10 week web cast that will lead them away from Biblical Truth and faith in
Jesus Christ through Tolle’s perverted spiritual teachings.
 I have told you
for years this is the most dangerous woman on earth, and she is clearly now
being used as a tool of satan to lead millions of souls to hell with these
false teachings she is promoting, while making millions of dollars doing it!

For the nearly 9 years Liveprayer has been around, I have continually
exposed this New Age false-hope merchant and warned people of how dangerous
she is. If Oprah Winfrey was simply another Hollywood entertainer I could
care less about her. What makes her so dangerous is that while her program
normally deals with the same subject matter the raunchy Jerry Springer
program does, Oprah also deals with the very real day-to-day issues of life
and uses her nationally-syndicated television program to tell people how to
live. The authority she speaks from? Herself, OPRAH WINFREY!

We are living in a time where the better percentage of two full generations
don’t go to church. People still hit those difficult places in life and at
those moments they are looking for help and for hope. Sadly, the Christian
leaders of our day have abandoned the marketplace and secular television for
the safety and prosperity of the “Christian trough.” In so doing, they have
left the lost and hurting masses looking for a savior, someone to come along
and help them through the difficult moments of life, tell them how to live,
and give them hope. To fill this void in people’s spiritual lives, along
comes Oprah!

People defend her by saying she is not a theologian or a preacher, she is a
talk-show host and entertainer. I agree. However, that is not how she
portrays herself or positions herself. She has eagerly cashed in to the tune
of over $1 BILLION DOLLARS on being the spiritual guru to over 49 million
people a week! The authority she speaks from is what she has determined
truth to be, her views on right and wrong, her values and morals, as opposed
to the only Truth and authority there is…God’s Word!

Lest you think I have overstated my case and have been wrong all these
years, please take a moment to read some quotes from a recent article in the
USA Today on “the Divine Miss Winfrey.”

“Over the past year, Winfrey, 52, has emerged as a spiritual leader for the
new millennium, a moral voice of authority for the nation.”

“With her television pulpit and the sheer power of her persona, she has
encouraged and steered audiences (mostly women) in all matters, from
genocide in Rwanda to suburban spouse swapping to finding the absolute best
T-shirt and oatmeal cookie.”

” ‘She’s a really hip and materialistic Mother Teresa,’ says Kathryn Lofton,
a professor at Reed College in Portland, Ore., who has written two papers
analyzing the religious aspects of Winfrey. ‘Oprah has emerged as a symbolic
figurehead of spirituality.’ ”

” ‘She’s a moral monitor, using herself as the template against which she
measures the decency of a nation,’ Lofton says.”

“With 49 million viewers each week in the USA and more in the 122 other
countries to which the show is distributed, Winfrey reaches more people in a
TV day than most preachers can hope to reach in a lifetime of sermons.”

“In a November poll conducted at Beliefnet.com, a site that looks at how
religions and spirituality intersect with popular culture, 33% of 6,600
respondents said Winfrey has had “a more profound impact” on their spiritual
lives than their clergypersons.”

“Winfrey called her talk show her ‘ministry.’ ”

“Marcia Nelson says that it’s not going too far to call her a spiritual
leader. ‘I’ve said to a number of people – she’s today’s Billy Graham.’ ”

” ‘Our culture is changing,’ he says, ‘as churches are in decline and the
bulk of a new generation is growing up outside of religion.’ Instead,
they’re turning to the Church of Oprah.” (Note: an episode of the TV Show Futurama predicted that Oprahism would replace Christianity.)

” ‘People who have no religion relate to her,’ Nelson says.”

It is clearly established that Oprah Wiinfrey views herself as some sort of
spiritual leader, and based on the 49 million viewers of her TV program, you
can laugh at that notion but can’t ignore the fact she has an incredible
amount of influence over tens of millions of lives. Let me be clear. The
danger of Oprah Winfrey is that like any cult leader, her version of the
truth and her final authority are not from God but from herself! It has been
clearly documented from transcripts that Oprah Winfrey may use the name of
“God,” and very rarely “Jesus,” and use many “Christian” expressions, but so
does the Mormon cult! While she was raised in the Baptist church, she has
been a long-time member (though rarely attends) of a very liberal church in
Chicago that mixes Christian faith with New Age spirituality, that also
happens to be the church of B. Hussein Obama.

Because she has never been married, choosing instead of live for decades
outside the bonds of God’s Holy Institution with a man who is not her
husband, Oprah has a jaundiced view on this most sacred bond between a man
and woman. (In truth, Oprah Winfrey is a radical feminist that views marriage as oppressive to women, and hints at such from time to time on her show, especially during a particularly grotesque episode where she distorted the words of her mother by claiming that she wanted her daughter to get married and go through a lifestyle of sexual submissiveness to her husband, which incidentally was not what the woman was actually saying it and Oprah knew it; Oprah just chose to humiliate this woman on national TV merely because the woman wanted her promiscuous daughter to get married and restrict her sexual behavior to marriage. So Winfrey is actually worse than Keller is depicting here. I still remember the episode where Winfrey attempted to similarly humiliate Kirk Franklin and his wife – who never should have went on her show in the first place – but Franklin was smart enough not to give her an opening.) Oprah embraces the New Age philosophy that there are “many roads that lead to God,” a lie from the pits of hell itself. On her program she promotes and endorses cults like Scientology, Kaballah, those who speak to the dead, psychics, and people of ANY “spirituality.” There is only ONE GOD, the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to promote the false gods of this world makes Oprah an enemy of God!

As for the social issues, Oprah condones and supports those who choose to
engage in the sin of homosexuality. Oprah is on the record supporting a
“woman’s right to choose,” code for slaughtering innocent babies. While she
gives lip service to being pro-family, Oprah’s definition of the family is
whatever men want it to be, not what God says it is! Again, the truth Oprah
espouses comes from her own imagination, not from the only authority and
source of Truth there is, the Bible. By going against God’s Word on the key
social issues of our day makes Oprah an enemy of God.

I could go on, but there is no reason to. Simply denying the Bible as the
only Truth there is, God as the one and only God there is, and faith in
Jesus Chris as the one and ONLY WAY to be saved, makes this woman dangerous
and a false prophet in every sense of the word. What makes a person a false
prophet is that they lead you AWAY from God, Biblical Truth and Jesus
Christ. Sadly, those who follow this false prophet, this merchant of false
hope, put their eternal souls in peril. That is why I have warned people for
years about her and will continue to.

I love you and care about you so much. I know all the Oprah disciples who
spend hundreds of dollars to go hear her preach the “gospel of Oprah” at her
seminars, buy her books and magazine, watch her faithfully every day, hang
on her every word, will run to her defense by pointing out all the good she
does. I don’t doubt for a second that Oprah uses some of her billions to
help others. That is not the issue. The Mormon cult feeds the hungry,
clothes the naked, and visits the prisoners, yet they are still lost and
going to hell for rejecting Jesus Christ. The Mafia gives millions to
worthwhile causes that help those in need, but that doesn’t make them good
people. God’s Word teaches you can’t buy your way into heaven!

So what is the answer to Rev. Oprah? She is locked in. One of the most
powerful women in the entertainment business. She is not going away and now
that she is at least being honest about her “spiritual guru” status, will
become even bolder in trying to position herself as the spiritual leader of
the nation. By the way, this is EXACTLY how the anti-Christ will rise to
power and the one-world religion will come to be. A charismatic figure who
can control the masses and fill their spiritual needs by feeding them a
perverse theology that makes them feel good for the moment.

The answer is to take on Oprah just like Elijah took on the prophets of
Baal, head-on! In the end, the TRUTH will always win out over the lie. False
hope will always give way to true hope. The false prophet will always be
exposed when confronted by a true prophet of God. I have told you many times
that what we are dealing with is a battle for the souls of men. This is why
I am so passionate about the Liveprayer television program being on
worldwide. It will be a beacon of light in the darkness of this world for
Biblical Truth and lead people to the only answer there is..Jesus Christ!

The reality is, for nearly 5 years now, night after night I have done on the
Liveprayer television program what Oprah does on her program. Deal with the
pressing issues of the day, reach out to people who are hurting, and give
them answers for their life. The difference? I let them know that I can’t
help them and I am not their answer, Jesus is! I deal with the issues of the
day not from a worldly perspective but a Biblical one! The answers for the
hurting I share are not from my imagination but from God’s Word! The truth I
share is not my truth, it is God’s Truth! The hope I give people is not a
false hope, but the ONLY hope there is…JESUS CHRIST!

(Sadly, many high profile Christians will go on Oprah’s program and rather
than confront her and challenge the false theology she espouses, say nothing
so they can sell whatever book they are pushing. David had no fear in taking
on Goliath on his own turf. David was a shepherd, not a great man of war
like Goliath. I have no fear in taking on Oprah on her own turf. I am an
evangelist, not a great television and entertainment celebrity like Oprah.
David didn’t need the fancy armor of Saul, only a few pebbles. I don’t need
fancy buildings and studios, only a few pebbles and that is why I am asking
you at this time to help me. Supply me with the pebbles I need and our God
will do the rest!)

The world has always had false prophets, merchants of false hope. Oprah, her
creation “Dr. Phil,” Montel, and B. HUssein Obama, are simply some of the
more notable ones of our day. I expose them for who they are, talk about
them, because they are leading people AWAY from the only Truth there is and
AWAY from the only hope there is. Pray for Oprah today. The fact is, Oprah
could become a powerful woman of God if she would humble herself before the
Almighty, get on her knees and confess Jesus Christ as Lord, and stop
preaching the gospel of Oprah but the Gospel of Jesus Christ, stop selling
people “spiritual crack,” but give them the Truth of God’s Word!!!

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

Doctors Say Babies That Survive Abortions Must Be Given Care Even If Mother Opposes!

Posted by Job on February 8, 2008

Note: for background see

INCONTROVERTIBLE PROOF THAT ABORTION DOCTORS ARE MURDERERS!

Breaking Christian News – Printer-Friendly Version

Italian Doctors: Abortion Survivors must be given Care, Even Against Mother’s Wishes
by Matthew Cullinan Hoffman : Feb 7, 2008 : LifeSiteNews
http://www.lifesite.net/ldn/2008/feb/08020601.htmlThe declaration “has fallen like a bomb among scientists and politicans.”

18 week Preborn Baby(Rome)—Doctors from four different Roman universities have issued a joint declaration affirming the duty of doctors to rescue and care for infants born alive after an abortion attempt, even against the wishes of the mother. (Photo: Lifesite.net)

The declaration, made by doctors at the obstetric clinics of La Sapienza, Tor Vergata, Campus Biomedico and Sacro Cuore, represent both the secular and religious sides of the Italian university system. The first two universities are public, and the second two are Catholic.

“An extremely premature newborn must be treated like any other person in danger, and assisted adequately,” said Domenico Arduni, director of the Tor Vergata gynecological clinic.

Arduini added that this principle would hold even if the child had survived an abortion, and “even if the mother is not in agreement.”

The four physicians issued the statement together during a meeting at Fatebenefratelli hospital in Rome last Saturday. According to the Spanish publication El Pais, the doctors’ declaration and the Vatican’s recent campaign for a “moratorium” on abortion in Italy (which has now become a global campaign), “has fallen like a bomb among scientists and politicians.”

Emma Bonino, the Italian Minister of European Policy, complained to El Pais that “the political class should not allow others to set their agenda.” The Italian health minister, Livia Turco, told the publication that protecting the life of such children was “senseless cruelty.” A prominent physician reportedly suggested that abortions be done by poisoning the baby with potassium chloride, thus ensuring his death before exiting the womb.

However, the ANSA news agency reports that the liberal bioethicist Cinzia Caporale has endorsed the physicians’ declaration, stating that while she is in favor of allowing euthanasia for adults who want it, children who leave the womb alive should be cared for, even against the will of the parents. “I don’t even consider their consent necessary if the fetus has survived an abortion,” she said.

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.

Judge Not Lascivious Christianity: Professed Christian Jamie Lynn Spears (Britney’s Sister) Is Pregnant And So Is Fantasia Barrino

Posted by Job on December 20, 2007

The Fantasia Barrino information here and the Jamie Lynn Spears stuff here. No, this will not be yet another screed against how liberal amoral Hollywood is destroying the moral fiber of America. Why when the church is playing that role?

That is true: the Spears and Barrino are professing Christians, as is Barrino’s American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson (whom I dealt with here for her refusal to oppose the homosexual agenda not out of her desire to avoid being the sort of hateful gay – basher that harms efforts to evangelize homosexuals, because doing so would have hurt her career). As a matter of fact Spears met the 19 year old father of her child, whom she has been cohabiting with, at church. So, for that matter, are Jessica and Ashlee Simpson, whose father (who can be counted on to make completely inappropriate comments about his daughters’ bodies) is a former minister.

The Destiny’s Child crew, Beyonce Knowles (whose sister Solange also had a child out of wedlock, though she did marry the father soon after) and similar, are also professed Christians. They even place gospel tracts on their albums and make references to being Christian in their secular songs (i.e. Survivor). Michelle Williams released a gospel album, showing only SLIGHTLY less skin in the videos for that album than the stripper attire that Destiny’s Child normally cavorts in. (After it did not sell, she released a secular album and bitterly denounced Christians for judging her.) And this actually is not as recent as it appears. Mary J. Blige, Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, and Sam Cooke can all be counted among those with gospel or church roots, Franklin (daughter of prominent pastor C. L. Franklin) particularly.

I will not rehash their histories, which are either well known or can be easily discovered with minimal research, and is really not the point as much as it is an indication of a larger issue. That is, how can the church claim to be under attack by the world if this is how people representing the church act? The Spears and the Simpsons are all Southern Baptists. As a matter of fact, all of them – Barrino, Blige, Knowles/Williams/Rowland, Green, Cooke, etc. – are Baptists or from a similar evangelical denomination. And yes, all of them at one time or another have traded on their Christian roots and backgrounds to A) garner the financial support of Christians and B) improve their images even as they are selling vulgarity and sexuality just like any heavy metal group that incorporates devil worship and the occult in their act.

It is generally acknowledged, for instance, that a few decades back black popular music was commercially stagnant and in danger of dying out. What did they do? Recruit black singers from the church, and also existing black talent started emulating them. Except that the styles, rhythms, and raw emotions once used to glorify Jesus Christ, the Father, and the Holy Spirit were now used primarily to glorify predatory and exploitative sexual behavior. White rock and roll acts i.e. the Rolling Stones, Jerry Lee Lewis (Jimmy Swaggart’s cousin), and Credence Clearwater REVIVAL began getting in on the act as well, adding drugs and violence to the mix. Again, this has been going on quite awhile. And not to pick on merely black music, we cannot forget how Johnny Cash would sing “I shot a man in Vegas just to watch him die” one night and “Just A Closer Walk With Thee” the next, let alone the life that Cash lived. Cash once reportedly asked Billy Graham about his brand of Christianity; Graham basically absolved him and allowed him to sing at his evangelistic meetings.

So when you look at what is going on not only with professing Christians in secular entertainment (and politics!) but even the actual Christian industry itself, we can no longer claim that Christianity is being corrupted by the world. Instead, we have to consider the real possibility that carnal Christianity is one of the influences that CORRUPTS the world, and a major one at that! It appears that Christians that have been all too busy fighting the culture and values wars against feminism, multiculturalism, political correctness, humanism, secularism, liberalism, etc. have been fighting the wrong battle. Such “culture critics” really do need to start working on pulling the beams out of Christendom’s eyes instead of worrying about the motes of the world. Phil Vischer, the creator of the popular Christian children’s series VeggieTales (and one of the few that actually makes references to God and the Bible), said it best in response to James Dobson’s campaign against Spongebob Squarepants (which Dobson quickly aborted in the face of public pressure because he needs a respectable mainstream public persona in order to retain his political influence and business empire): “Christians need to stop acting so shocked when the world acts like the world. Instead Christians need to shock the world by acting like Christians.”

Are you shocking the world by acting like a Christian, by loving Jesus Christ by keeping His Commandments? Or are you among those professed Christians that is perverting the world and leading it astray? You do not have to be someone with a huge presence in the public eye in order to have a negative effect. If anything, you, the individual Christian, are more important than Britney and Jamie Lynn Spears. You are even more important than the pro – abortion pro – rich pro – state universalist Skull and Bones occultist President Bush. No matter what those people choose to do and expose it for the world to see, we only know them based on how we perceive them through the media. It is not personal, only an image. But the people that are in your family, the people in your church, the people in your social or civic organizations, the people on your workplace or at your school, your neighbors, even folks you meet randomly on the street once and only briefly … it is those people who encounter the real you, and it is the real you that will have a lasting impact on them for good or for evil.

So what will that impact be? A corrupting impact or an uplifting one? Will it be the impact of someone that conforms to the world and loves its ways? Or the impact of a person that routinely studies a Bible, prays, and honestly tries to live according to your understanding of it? Will it be someone that is meek, merciful, peaceful, not self – seeking, and forgiving? Someone that loves all righteousness but hates all evil? Someone that is not partial to the wealthy or powerful but instead has his mind on the weak and voiceless? Someone that is willing to sacrifice and finish last on earth in return for your treasure in heaven?

Of course, I am of the firm belief that the body of Christ should speak out against and remove from fellowship such poseurs as these. But that is only a small part of the battle. The real battle is for each individual Christian to reject judge not lascivious carnal false Christianity within their own hearts and lives and start being what God called us to be in the Bible.

Do You Have Your Children Pray To God As Mother? These Evangelicals Are!

Prayers for Children to God as “Mother”

“Mother God, I’m scared tonight, will you come hold me?”

Apparently, this is a prayer for children when they feel afraid according to the evangelical feminists at Christians for Biblical Equality. It is just one of many prayers for children to the Mother-god(dess) taught in Jann Aldredge-Clanton’s book, God, A Word for Girls and Boys, page 121.

Postmodern evangelicalism has introduced children to the spirit of witchcraft and the occult despite the warnings given to us in Scripture. Satan is the “Mother of harlots” in Revelation 17:5. The “Great Deceiver” is the father/mother god and can take on both masculine and feminine—Satan is the mother (of harlots) in Revelation 17:5 and the father (of lies) in John 8:44. Jeremiah 7:18 says those who worship the “Queen of Heaven” spite God, and more verses forbid “mother-god” worship in Jeremiah 44:15-19, 25.

Still, Christians for Biblical Equality, the feminist patron saint of goddess worship within conservative arenas, has taken their foray of “updated language” to our evangelical youth. After all, old fashioned prayers to the “Master” and “King” are far too patriarchal for today’s sensitive boys and girls.

We are taught that the “Mother-god” prayers of inclusive language will keep the boys from committing the “sin of arrogance” and keep the girls from committing the “sin of devaluing themselves.” (God, A Word for Girls and Boys, Aldredge-Clanton, p. 11).

“E-quality” has gone on to teach via God, A Word for Girls and Boys:

“For the sake of these little ones we must change the way we talk about God and about human beings.” (Ibid, p. 11)

Jann Aldredge-Clanton, featured “Equality Depot” and Fuller Seminary bookstore author, rationalizes:

“The masculine language of the church takes literal root in our children. They cannot grasp a theology of God as transcendent Spirit if they hear trusted authority figures in the church constantly calling God ‘he’, ‘Father’, ‘King’.” (Ibid, p. 9)

Another suggested prayer for children is on page 23:

“God, our Mother, we thank you that you love us so much to want the best for us. Thank you for trusting us enough to let us do things on our own. We thank you that you love us enough to let go of us so that we can learn new things. Stay near us, and help us become all we can be. Amen.”

Unlike the God of the Bible, this weak god(dess) is far from omniscient. The children are given this example of prayer on page 126:

“Have you heard the bad news, God? My grandmother just died…”

We are also warned:

“Churches have contributed to the low self-esteem of black children by teaching them to sing such lines as these: Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.” (Ibid, p. 12).

In the lecture “Sophia, Wisdom of God or Goddess of Wisdom?” available via the CBE “Equality Depot” (Tape # ACF290) T.J. Ostrander teaches:

“I think that if you want to in your personal devotions address God as “Mother” I don’t have a problem with that.”

Rebecca Merrill Groothuis, CBE Board of Reference, writes to explicate (though, to her credit, she does not teach that we may call God “mother”), walking the tight rope of demarcation between CBE’s sway to neuter God for an anti-biblical, feminist agenda and the need to assuage the “patriarchal” acceptance of the God He claims to be in Scripture:

“When sexuality is de-spiritualized and God de-sexualized, the issue of the supposed gender of God becomes a nonissue, and the question of whether or not God is male or masculine becomes inappropriate and irrelevant.”

“It is true that, in the Incarnation, Christ became a male human. But the theological significance of Christ’s bodily incarnation is not that he became male, but that he became human. Christ’s maleness is never spoken of in the Bible as having any spiritual significance.”

This is false: see Isaiah 9:6—He had to come as a Man. It was prophesied that a “Son” would be given, not a daughter.

Furthermore, in this article, Rebecca Groothuis expounds on the Bible’s language as if it is a human book, as if the Bible was put together by humans with a private system of interpretation filled with human fallacies and cultural myths instead of being the product of the mind of God. This method of interpretation is how people abuse context and exercise improper hermeneutics:

“Father” was the more apt description for God, not only because a Mother-God would have been confused with the pagan fertility deities of the surrounding cultures, but also because fatherhood presented a picture of God as a person with power and authority–something which, in ancient patriarchal societies, was possessed almost exclusively by men.

The Bible says that “men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God” (2 Peter 1:21). There was no limitation in the Holy Spirit’s inspiration due to “ancient patriarchal societies.” (For more information on proper Bible interpretation hear Dr. Walter Martin’s sermon “Hermeneutics, Part 2” available through Walter Martin Ministries).

Mimi Haddad, president of Christians for Biblical Equality, teaches in her article “What Language Shall We Use” :

“We may speak of God as Father or as Mother.”

These evangelical women truly have come to a “self-realization.” After all, the founder of the New Age Self-Realization Fellowship taught the same thing! Paramahansa Yogananda concurs in his suggested invocations to the father/mother god found in Metaphysical Meditations: Universal Prayers, Affirmations, and Visualizations, pages 76-77:

“Bless me Father that the single eye of realization lead me to behold through all the veils of matter the infinite presence of Christ.” [sic]

“Divine Mother I will pull away the starry veil of the blue…I will shut off the diverting motion pictures of life, that I may behold Thee.”

Paramahansa also praised the “Divine Mother” as quoted in his Revelations of Christ, endorsed by Neale Donald Walsch:

“Thousands of scriptures declare my Mother is beyond all form and infinite.” (p. 135).

Neale Donald Walsch calls these Revelations of Christ by Paramahansa Yogananda “a gift to humanity” and “a spiritual treasure to pass on to children of all generations.”

Like the evangelical feminists, Paramhansa uses Bible verses to support his teaching. A three-page “Index of Bible Verses” is found in the back of the book with Paramhansa’s interpretation, for the “ancient science of Self-realization” certainly would be lacking without a demonic “new interpretation” of the Holy Bible, targeted for children.

The Difference: Women Who Follow Christ Versus Those Of False Religions

Posted by Job on November 13, 2007

liveprayer.com/signup.cfm


The difference between the roles of women who follow Christ, versus women
who follow the Mormon cult or the false religion of Islam. I have to laugh
when I hear people who are clearly Biblically illiterate state the Bible
demeans women, that God’s Word teaches women are inferior to men, or that
Paul was a male chauvinist. Paul was a revolutionary in his day, teaching
God’s Word that men and women were equal when in his culture women were
little more than property. People who make such statements are 100% wrong
about what the Bible teaches regarding women and their roles. Let me say
right up front that according to God’s Word a man and a woman are 100%
equal, they simply have different roles to play.

In God’s account of creation found in the first chapter of Genesis, the
Bible states, “And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He
created him; male and female He created them.” Paul, in writing to the
church at Galatia states, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither
bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in
Christ Jesus.” The Bible CLEARLY and without any question teaches that God
created men and women as equals. The only difference is in the specific
roles each has been assigned.

This is NOT SO in many cults and false religions, specifically in the Mormon
cult and the false religion of Islam. I guess if a person was operating in
the flesh, it is understandable why a man would buy into the lies of Joey
Smith and his Mormon cult, or the false religion of Islam dreamed up by
Mohammed 1400 years ago. Both of these satanically inspired “religions”
that have lead millions of souls to hell, with literally over a billion more
alive today who are on that conveyor belt to eternal punishment for
believing their lies, are designed for and geared towards men. Women are
less than men in every way in both the Mormon cult and the false religion of
Islam.

Again, I guess I see why some men would be attracted to these false beliefs.
After all, it sounds nice that you die and become the god of your own planet
with an unlimited number of women waiting to have sex with you to create
“spirit babies” as the Mormon cult teaches, or that a Muslim man can die and
go to “paradise” where some ridiculous number of virgins are waiting to have
sex with him. The Bible actually teaches that there will be no marriage in
Heaven, no physical bodies which of course means no sex. Again, satan the
father of lies has perverted God’s wonderful gift of sex designed for a
husband and wife in this life and used it as a motivation for men to follow
a false faith that will lead their souls to hell.

Note: I can only imagine the sheer horror of those who followed the lies of
Smith, when upon their death they realized as they stood before God their
Creator that they were not and never would be a “god,” and instead of a
planet full of women there were the eternal flames and torment of hell. No
doubt, those who followed the lies of Mohammed also had to be shocked when
they died and instead of virgins waiting to have sex with them, was satan
welcoming them to a place of eternal punishment.

Something I have never been able to understand is why a woman would want
anything to do with either the Mormon cult or the false religion of Islam.
In both of these false beliefs woman are unequal to men and really little
more than the property of men, no different than a slave. The Mormon
position on women has changed little since the early 1800’s, when the
official view was that “woman’s primary place is in the home, where she is
to rear children and abide by the righteous counsel of her husband”
(McConkie 844). This attitude, coupled with the doctrine of polygamy and the
absolute power claimed by the men of the church, created a legacy of
profound sexism which modern Mormonism continues to foster..

Mormonism has created an ingenious system of oppression, in which opposition
towards men is tantamount to arguing with God. At age twelve, boys become
members of the Aaronic, or lesser priesthood, and at nineteen become
eligible for the Melchezedek, or higher priesthood. Members of either
priesthood are higher authorities on everything than are non-members. Women
are, of course, excluded from the priesthood. This practice in effect says
that a woman’s prepubescent son is more qualified to advise her than she is
to advise him.

The most notorious example of Mormon treatment of women is, of course, the
practice of polygamy. Polygamous marriage is basically essential to Mormon
theology. Mormon Doctrine states that God was once a human man, and “He is
now a glorified, resurrected Personage having a tangible body of flesh and
bones” (250). As a matter of fact, “all gods first existed as spirits, came
to an earth to receive bodies, and then, after having passed through a
period of probation on the aforesaid earth, were advanced to the exalted
position they now enjoy” (Hoekema 38). After death, a good Mormon man who
has followed a few certain rules is catapulted to this same status and
receives his own planet to populate and rule over (Fife 103). To receive
this honor, a man must be “married for eternity” in the Mormon temple. This
special marriage is binding after death as well as until it.

“Celestial” marriage, as this eternal marriage is often called, is essential
for Mormon women. Without being celestially married to a holder of the
priesthood, a woman cannot be “saved” (Green 154). In the temple marriage
ceremony, women are given secret names known only to their husbands, for
identification purposes, so their husbands can pull them through to “the
other side” after death. After death, while their husbands are creating and
ruling over planets, the women have the questionable honor of bearing his
“spirit children” for eternity. Because of the doctrine of celestial
marriage, it is very difficult for Mormon women to obtain divorces in the
church. Women are told that “divorce is usually the result of one or both
not living the gospel”, and that a woman who wants a divorce is “untrue to
the covenants she has made in the house of the Lord” A Mormon woman has
the joy of looking forward to an eternity of being pregnant!

As for women who are part of the false religion of Islam, they are really
little more than slaves and the “property of their husband.” In Islam,
woman are not equal to men in any way. The Qur’an says that the testimony
of a woman is not equal to that of a man. It says that the testimony of two
women is required to be equal to the testimony of one man. Call in two male
witnesses from among you, but if two men cannot be found, then one man and
two women whom you judge fit to act as witnesses. (Qur’an 2:282 Dawood)
Interestingly, Islam teaches the vast majority of those in hell are women.
Ibn Abbas reported that Allah’s Messenger said: I had a chance to look into
paradise and I found that majority of the people was poor and I looked into
the Fire and there I found the majority constituted by women. (Muslim, vol.
4, hadith 6597, p. 1432).

In the false religion of Islam, beating women is not only common, but
something their “holy book” encourages. “And those (wives) you fear may be
rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them.” (Qur’an
4:34, Arberry) Many hadiths encourage wife beating. Umar reported the
Prophet as saying, “A man will not be asked about why he beat his wife.”
(Mishkat Al-Masabih, p. 693: Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah) Mohammed was also
recorded to have beat his wives.

Of course, a woman’s chief responsibility is to satisfy her husband
sexually. Mohammad gave strong warnings to women who would not accommodate
their husbands/masters desire. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (p.) said,
“if a man invites his wife to sleep with him an she refuses to come to him,
then angels send their curses on her till morning.” (Bukhari, vol. 7, hadith
121, p. 93) For the Muslim man, upon his death he believes there will be
many virgins waiting for him. “Surely for the godfearing awaits a place of
security, gardens and vineyards and maidens with swelling breasts, like of
age, and a cup overflowing.” (Qur’an 78:31-33, Arberry) In the world of
Islam, women have no legal standing, and are little more than a man’s
punching bag and sex object.

I love you and care about you so much Why a woman would want to be part of
the Mormon cult or the false religion of Islam is beyond me. They are
believed to be inferior to men and little more than slaves who exist for the
benefit of men. I have no clue why any woman would want to be part of these
lies from the pits of hell, especially when you know the TRUTH about women
as God tell us in His Word. All throughout the Bible, women have played an
incredible role in the plan of God. We see women being used by God in
incredible ways, helping to fulfill His Divine plan. Women have always
played a key role in God’s work, and I want to make sure we never lose sight
of how important they are in the Kingdom of God.

THE LIE OF SATAN THROUGH THE TEACHINGS OF CULTS LIKE MORMONISM AND THE FALSE
RELIGION OF ISLAM IS THAT WOMEN ARE INFERIOR TO MEN. THE TRUTH OF GOD’S
WORD TEACHES THAT MEN AND WOMEN ARE EQUAL!!!

I want to encourage women who are following the lies of Mormonism and Islam
that you are NOT inferior to a man. God made you EQUAL with men. He loves
you, has a special plan and purpose for your life, and wants the best for
you. The fact is a large percentage of women in Mormonism and Islam did not
choose these beliefs or make a conscience decision to commit their lives to
them, they were born or married into them. You cannot be born or married
into Christianity. It is a choice, a decision you have to make to give your
heart and life to Jesus. He loves you and wants to have an everlasting
relationship with you. You don’t need your parents or a man or anyone else
to know Jesus as your personal Savior. It is a relationship you enter into
by faith.

The fact is that all of us, men and women, are born with the sin of Adam in
addition to those sins we commit during our life. It is our sin that
separates us from God our Creator. But God loved us so much, He sent Jesus
to die for our sins. That is why it is faith in Jesus alone, not Mohammed,
not the false jesus of Joey Smith, but the Jesus of the Bible who is GOD
that will save your soul. It is not too late. You can turn from the lies
of Mormonism or Islam today and ask Jesus into your heart and life by faith
and He will. Take a moment, pray, and ask God to open your heart and watch

Feminism And Atheism Versus Christianity

MSNBC Uses Postmodern Feminist Revisionism To Glorify JEZEBEL And Attack Christianity

Posted by Job on November 9, 2007

msnbc.msn.com/id/21693714/

There have long been ongoing attempts to use feminist and homosexual postmodern scholarship to glorify the wicked characters in the Bible, and also to denigrate the virtuous ones. The real goal is not to cause young boys and girls to want to be like Cain or Jezebel, but rather to attack the authority of scripture. Well now such propaganda is being slyly inserted into mainstream media outlets past the long radical New York Times (who really wants to be the Village Voice). Here MSNBC is exploiting a minor archaeological find as an opportunity to promote its anti – Christian radical agenda.

Jezebel, the queen whose name became synonymous with all things lewd and wicked, probably wielded a fair bit of power in ancient Israel. Never mind that she ACTUALLY WAS lewd and wicked. This sets the tone for the rest of the article.

The seal confirms that Jezebel, who eventually met a gory demise, was a powerful figure in the ancient world who conducted business independent of her husband. Excuse me, but women becoming powerful figures in Israel is rather unremarkable in the Bible. Deborah judged Israel, and Athaliah ruled the whole nation. So is conducting business apart from your husband. Quite the contrary, Proverb 31 asserts that a woman exhibiting her own business initiative doing so is the mark of a virtuous wife (which is why I have never bought into the religious right “women should stay home” agenda). “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.” That is why nonsense moves such as the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary starting a home economics program to put women in their place is so foolish: it is based on a political agenda rather than what the Bible actually says (and undercuts Patterson’s legitimate attempts to drive theologians that reject the inspiration and inerrancy of scripture out of that place). Look, Satan is going to attack us regardless, so why give an opening and justification for his lies by carrying on abiblical nonsense? Lydia of acts was not a baby producing homemaker, but a very successful businesswoman that God used to found the Philippian church, the very embodiment of Proverb 31. But the media counts on people not knowing what is actually in the Bible to promote lies like this, and religious right types actually further their cause.

Back to the article. The lion-sphinx with female head and female Isis-Hathor crown, which is unique, this clearly points to a queen,” said Marjo Korpel, an Old Testament scholar at the University of Utrecht who conducted the research. The seal confirms that Jezebel, who eventually met a gory demise, was a powerful figure in the ancient world who conducted business independent of her husband. No, it proves what the Bible says about her … that she was a pagan idolator that forced her religious beliefs on Israel. Of course, the notion that paganism and witchcraft should be adopted instead of or syncretized into Christianity because of the former two’s greater support for women’s equality (and promotion of lesbianism, bisexuality, and abortion) has long been a goal of postmodern feminism.

As a Phoenician, the Queen was considered pagan and attempted to sway the people of Israel to abandon their God and accept her chief deity Baal, partly through forging her husband’s seal on documents, according to the scriptures. Now even when they are forced to deal with what the Bible actually says, they use all of these qualifiers. Jezebel was not considered pagan because she was Phoenician. Was Uriah the Hittite considered pagan because he was Hittite? Was Ruth the Moabitess considered pagan because she was from Moab? Was the queen of Sheba (Ethiopia) considered pagan because she was Ethiopian? Was Zipporah considered pagan because she was Midianite? No, the queen of Sheba, Uriah and Ruth left the false gods of their fathers to worship the one true God (similar to Melchisidek, Jethro, Zipporah, and family apparently were already worshiping Yahweh). MSNBC and LiveScience.com were trying to make the Bible appear racist when the opposite is true: foreign peoples that abandon their religion to worship the true God are actually given far more prominent treatment (with uncritical depictions!) in the Bible than their actual roles in salvation history would merit. Have we forgotten that there are THREE FOREIGN WOMEN (Rahab, Ruth, Tamar) listed in the genealogy of Jesus Christ? That is a fact that I LOVE to use to vex those “God ordained the separation of the races!” pseudo – Christian folks with. The truth is that so long as they refrained from idolatry and obeyed the Sabbath, even foreigners that did not convert to Judaism received better treatment in Israel than they did anywhere else in the ancient world. Again, the writers of this piece depend upon your not being familiar with the Bible.

And this is the payoff. With her own seal, Queen Jezebel was able to exert a powerful influence upon people around her, much like the Egyptian queens, Korpel said. The biblical texts already prove that she was a powerful woman. (Something else from scripture that they were forced to admit … their quest to “prove” that information is hidden from the Bible in order to oppress women is ridiculous from the outset because they provide no new or contradictory information to what the Bible already depicts.) The queens in Egypt … all have in common their prominent roles in religion, politics and representational art, and their status as principal wife. This also seems to count for Queen Jezebel,” said Korpel. Unlike Egypt, however, Biblical Israel did not look favorably upon powerful women. Jezebel was ultimately perceived as a threat and foreign idol worshipper, accused of prostitution, murder and sorcery, and tossed from her window to be ravaged by dogs.

Oh yes by the way, Marjo Korpe is an Old Testament scholar at the University of Utrecht. So the fellow is a liar who will burn in the lake of fire unless he repents of his sins. Why? Was Queen Esther called a threat, a foreign idol worshiper and thrown to the dogs? No, because Esther only worshiped God. Was the queen of Sheba called a threat, a foreign idol worshiper, and thrown to the dogs? No, because the queen of Sheba worshiped only God. Was Deborah called a threat, a prostitute, an idol worshiper, and thrown to the dogs? No, because Deborah worshiped God only. The Sheba/Ethiopia reference is key here. Not only is a later very powerful queen, Candace, later mentioned very favorably in the Bible (her subject was the first Gentile to be born again), but Jesus Christ said that her kingdom would judge Israel for its rejection of Him as Messiah (Luke 11:31 … hey heretic John Hagee have you read Luke 11:31?).

This fellow knows perfectly well that the Bible did not disdain Jezebel because she was powerful, but rather because she was an evil murdering pagan. Claiming “she was portrayed as a prostitute” … he knows very well that cult prostitution was integral to Baal worship. According to this fellow, Israel was not only wrong for failing to be tolerant of her religion, but only rejected her religion because – gasp! – she was a powerful woman! Never mind that the Bible gives an even worse treatment to the MEN who were idolators … NATIVE BORN MEN! Because it was not because of Jezebel that Israel fell to the Assyrians and Judah to the Babylonians, but rather kings like Manasseh and Jeroboam II.

This is all part of the media’s plan to get you to reject the Bible and Christianity with it on the basis that A) it is sexist and B) it conceals, distorts, or opposes the truth. In other words, this article is doing the same that the serpent told Eve in the garden: “woman, God is just trying to oppress you and keep you down. But you go ahead and eat that forbidden fruit so that you can be liberated.” Well I am here to tell you today that Satan was a liar then, and he is a liar now. The only liberation is from sin through subjection to Jesus Christ. The enemy is so bold and wicked that he would rather have a woman’s role model be a murdering prostitute witch than Jesus Christ (no, Catholics, I did not say that MARY should be the role model for Christian women, but CHRIST JESUS ALONE). But guys, Satan is after you too, trying to pass off the murdering pedophile adulterer freemason Joseph Smith of Mormonism or the murdering pedophile moon worshiper Mohammed of Islam.

An interesting corollary between the two: notice that unlike what Jesus Christ said that there would be no marriage in heaven in Matthew 22:30 and Mark 12:25, grotesque sexual fantasies that are rather dehumanizing to women are integral to the afterlife myths of Mormonism and Islam. Why? Because myths concerning heaven being a huge eternal orgy is found in other pagan traditions. The false pagan gods committed adultery, homosexuality, pedophilia, bestiality, incest, etc. and having sexual practices like their gods so that they could be like them was an integral part of the religion because it is a required way to please those false gods and advance in the religion.

Marjo Korpe knows this because he has read the Bible. LiveScience.com and MSNBC know this because they have read the Bible. Pagans and witches that are out there recruiting new converts from Christianity know this because they have read the Bible. Mormons and a great many Muslims know this because they have read the Bible. What they are counting on is YOU not knowing this OR being able to oppose this because YOU have not. And the sad part is that in a great many cases regarding Christians: they are right, and studies prove it.

If you are not born again, please do not be deceived. Follow The Three Step Salvation Plan and start serving the true God who values men and women equally, and whose religion does not claim that men will be given an endless supply of virgins to please them sexually for eternity. If you are born again, please equip yourself to be able to spot and contend against these and other lies with vigorous study of the Holy Scriptures.

The Main Question: Did I Choose God Or Did God Choose Me?

Posted by Job on September 15, 2007

That is the fundamental question that all who call themselves Christians must confront and reconcile. Your answer to this question totally controls your view of God, your view of world events, your view of yourself, and the behavior that results. Election or conscious choice? Predestination or free will? That is what it is all about. Take for instance the vexing issues of holiness, sanctification, and purity to the Christian. If you believe one way, then those things are clearly legalism through human actions. But if you believe the other way, those things are functions of faith, grace, and love. So then, which mindset makes one more likely to believe that they can bring about God’s favor and blessings into their lives with their own actions?

Though it may appear that I am leaning towards the “God chose me” side, what of “Galatians 3:6-Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” I have noticed the passive nature of that statement with regards to Abraham, as it does not say that Abraham BECAME righteous, but rather that the status was GIVEN to him through no merit or action of his own. And consider not only that his “righteousness” was an undeserved gift, but that he was still not truly righteous. He was only declared so by God because in spite of Abraham’s UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, his original sin, his sin nature, and his past/present/future sin, God still wanted to save him.

Fine, so God chose Abraham, and Abraham did not choose God. Right? But that still leaves begging the issue that IT WAS COUNTED TO HIM FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS BECAUSE ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD. Can I draw that inference? Or is it wrong? If I can, or even if I am wrong but the point is still worth weighing and bandying about, what would have happened had Abraham not believed God?

It is true, God came to Abram of God’s own initiative and told him to leave Haran to become the man to whom the promise of salvation would be given. True, Abram did nothing to merit or deserve God’s election in that matter. Still, Abram did have to leave his father’s house, idolatry, and Haran behind, did he not? What would have happened had Abram said no? Of course, God still would have proceeded with His redemption plan, as despite Catholics who claim that Jesus Christ would have never been born had their Virgin Mary idol said no (their way out of that conundrum is to claim that God KNEW that Virgin Mary would say yes because God foreknew of her righteousness from the foundation of the world, but you still have to consider the implications of their doctrine in this area), God is not dependent on or a function of man or any part of His creation in any way. But that does not answer the question with regards to Abraham: what if he had said no? What would have happened to his individual soul?

And then you have Romans 1:20-32. Do you realize that after all my years of attending church and watching preachers on TV, I only heard a preacher address that passage for the first time last week? Even better, I only became aware of the existence of this passage a few weeks prior by way of this excellent Bible commentary that I acquired and have been perusing as time permits. Had I known about Romans 1:20-32 (I read it as I have read the Bible completely several times, but only now retained and understood it) I would have never constructed this exceedingly long rambling bit of false doctrine FAITH DOES NOT COME BY HEARING for my original website that thankfully virtually no one ever visited despite my many efforts to attract people to it. (As to why I have not deleted the old website materials yet, the reason is that it is still expedient for me at this present time in my spiritual development to remember how bizarre my thinking was back when I was in by Word of Faith/prosperity doctrine/TBN syncophant phase.)

In any event, the main idea of Romans 1:20-32 appears to be that God freely offered Himself to all mankind, and that mankind rejected Him in order to chase after their own sinful hearts. So the same question reappears in a different from: where prior what if Abraham had said no, now it is what if mankind had said YES? While that might appear to be a more vexing problem, the solution is actually simpler: Matthew 20:16 and Matthew 22:14 both say that many are called but few are chosen. While it is dangerous to apply those or any scripture for that matter out of their immediate context (that is the intended meaning of those words to the intended audience both when and where Jesus Christ said them and Matthew wrote them) it is clear that no matter what happens when God calls you, SAVE GOD CALLS A PERSON THAT PERSON CANNOT BE SAVED! And that answers both the Galatians 3:6 and Romans 1:20-32 manifestations of the same question. If you focus on the fact that Abraham said yes, then you are man – centered in your doctrine, and that inevitably leads to having a man – pleasing religion. The same is true if you focus on mankind’s rejection of God in the beginning.

But if you instead focus on the fact that God gave an opportunity to Abraham and to the human race that they did not earn or deserve and that God had no obligation to give, then you are God – centered in your outlook. Instead of having a man – centered religion, you will have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through grace. That is what God is offering you right now in the time and place of His choosing and on His terms. I urgently entreat you to accept His offer right now. Please follow The Three Step Salvation Plan!

And for those who have already accepted Christ, please remember that God chose you. Keeping that in remembrance should prevent you from living your life to please people, including yourself. It should cause you to reject doctrines and ministries that are centering around uplifting and glorifying people, including preachers that are famous because they make people feel good, usually by way of offering them ways to avoid responsibility for their actions, i.e. the very popular “no one has the right to judge!” notion that is very popular among many who claim to be Christ’s today, as well as the humanistic psychoanalytical navel gazing trends that allows you to blame everything on “issues in your past” (especially if you are female, which is an explanation for why women so outnumber men in the church, a problem that can be corrected by preaching the real gospel and demanding that BOTH SEXES live according to it).

God chose you because He loves you. But it is not a one way street: you have to love Him back! And the only way to love God that is given in scripture is to keep His Commandments. John 14:15 is the most important verse in the Bible when it comes to practical Christian living, yet it and its implications are hardly spoken of in the church today. If there is any ministry that claims to offer some other way for you to love, serve, worship, or get to know God than through complete obedience and trust in Him at all times in every facet of your life, you are following false doctrine from a false preacher and should leave NOW without looking back.

Jesus Christ reminded His disciples that they did not choose Him, but rather He chose they. And yes, one of the chosen included Judas Iscariot! Did Judas Iscariot believe? If so, did he obey? Those questions are unknown to history, and it is better that way. But person who calls yourself a Christian, never forget this: your notion of whether you chose God or God chose you could be the very thing that determines whether you are one of Judas Iscariot’s brethren, and whether it would have been better for you had you never been born. Think about that and what John 14:15 means in your life, now and henceforth.
