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!

Why Does The Media Focus Only On Harold Camping?

Posted by Job on May 26, 2011

Yes, Harold Camping has been exposed as a false prophet, deceiving many as concerning the timing of the second coming of Jesus Christ. Again. Yes, his deception has caused lots of problems and unnecessary harm, especially for his followers. Again. The question is this: what is the big deal? Why has Camping been the subject of such media attention for months when there are so many pressing stories to cover i.e. wars, famines, diseases, natural disasters, economic failures, political intrigues etc. on a global scale? Clearly the media has an agenda, but what is it?

First off, for the sake of sound doctrine, let it be known that the return of Jesus Christ will not occur until A) the gospel has been taken to all nations and B) a great apostasy, a great falling away from the true faith, occurs. As the great commission is a primary duty of the church, it logical to conclude that the falling away will occur shortly after the great commission is fulfilled, or when the great commission’s fulfillment and with it the time of the Gentiles draws to a close. Anyone who extricates themselves from rapture watching and religious right (or religious left) politics long enough to pay attention to the global missions movements knows that barring a fantastic miracle we are at least 100 years from fulfilling the great commission (the 10/40 window alone is an amazing challenge) and – despite the claims of Camping otherwise – far from there being a great falling away, there are more Christians – or definitely appreciable numbers of Christians in more places – today than at any time in history. So, if we can learn anything from this Camping episode, it is that we should heed the words given by angels and recorded by the physician Luke at the direction of God the Holy Spirit “why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” That was an exhortation to cease waiting for eternity and to get on with the business of living for eternity by loving Jesus Christ and walking in His ways.

With that out of the way, let it further be said that the error of Camping does not undermine the authority of the Bible, Jesus Christ or His church but rather confirms it. How? Because the Bible repeatedly warns against false teachers, including those who would lead people into error concerning His second coming. Jesus Christ said that “false prophets shall deceive many” in Matthew 24:5, and that many will be offended by the true faith in Matthew 24:10. Such false teachings were present even while the New Testament was being written, as the apostle Peter referenced them in 2 Peter 3:4, the apostle John did the same in 1 John 2:18, and the apostle Paul did the same in 2 Thessalonians 2.  Further, Jesus Christ predicted such specifically in Matthew 24:4-5! The New Testament makes it clear that we identify false teachers when they teach things that are in contradiction to the Bible. This truth is what drove William Tyndale to martyrdom, when he stated “I defy the Pope and all his laws. If God spare my life ere many years, I will cause the boy that drives the plow to know more of the scriptures than you!” in response to being told that common people didn’t need to be knowledgeable concerning the Bible’s contents, because it was better to obey the pope than the Bible anyway. So, in rejecting Jesus Christ when He stated that none knows the timing of His return save God the Father (Matthew 24:36), and in rejecting Jesus Christ when He stated that the great commission will be fulfilled before He returns (Matthew 24:14) and in rejecting the Holy Spirit’s inspiration of Paul concerning the falling away first in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, this Camping teaches against things concerning God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, and by his doing so and attracting so many followers he verifies the pages of the New Testament when it said that such a thing would happen. So, Camping did not harm the authenticity or integrity of the Bible by being wrong, but rather verified the Bible’s truth! Instead, Camping’s being RIGHT would have been an occasion to challenge the veracity of the Bible, for were Jesus Christ to return before we reach the many tribes in the 10/40 window or while there are tens of millions of believers risking persecution to worship in Africa and Asia, what would be said of those Bible texts?

So, make no mistake, there is nothing special about Camping. Was not just over ten years ago when there were tons of false prophets claiming based on Bible codes and numerology that Jesus Christ was going to return in 2000? (Never mind that the Bible doesn’t follow our modern calendars, and that Bede almost certainly incorrectly calculated the date of the birth of Jesus Christ that we use for “B.C.” and “A.D.” anyway). Or about 25 years ago Jesus Christ was going to return because it was 40 years after of the establishment of the modern state of Israel? (Never mind that Jesus Christ spoke “this generation” to the Jews of His own time concerning the destruction of the temple in 70 A.D., and if the Bible actually does speak of the restoration of the political nation of Israel, it does not link this event to any timetable concerning Christ’s return.) So why all the fuss and the furor? It has to serve some sort of media agenda.

Consider this: how come when the subject in view is Usama bin Laden or some other Muslim terrorist, the media is quick to say “he isn’t a real Muslim” or “he doesn’t represent mainstream Islam that is practiced by hundreds of millions of peaceful followers”, but the media is quick to depict Camping as being in or near the mainstream of evangelical and fundamental Christians? In truth, as Camping rejects the Holy Trinity, he shouldn’t be classified as Christian at all. Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Muslims and Jews all reject the Holy Trinity, a core foundational doctrine of Christianity that sets it apart from other religions that are either polytheistic or present a false teaching on God’s Unity. But while the media does its best to present Islam and increasingly Mormonism as moderate and mainstream, it uses Camping to create a wild eyed, dangerous fanatical face for Bible-believing Christianity.

Another thing: it isn’t as if Camping is the only false prophet or source of wrong information. Far from it. It is just that when so many others get things wrong and are exposed for their false, anti-Biblical thinking, nothing is ever said about it. Instead, the media, the academy, the elites simply move on. (Or they carry on as if the error was never made.) Consider liberal Christianity, such as the critical “scholars.” Barely a year goes by when an archaeological find of a Biblical site or a scientific breakthrough that confirms Biblical truth or discovery of early manuscripts verifying the existence of historical persons, places and the integrity of Biblical texts that the critical scholars challenged, yet the critical scholars are still accepted as scholars, and their methods – which would never be used in any other field because of their ascientific nature – accepted as reliable.

But that is just the Bible, right? Wrong. Take psychology. The theories of giants in that field like Sigmund Freud and Alfred Kinsey have long been discredited. Yet they are still revered as having made great contributions to science, modern thought and human progress, and furthermore their discredited theories are still being taught as fact in our schools and universities. But psychology, save when it is based on experimentation and observation and does not deal with brain’s biology and chemistry, is a “soft science”, right? Sure, except that the theories in the hard sciences like physics and biology turn up erroneous also. Our schools still teach the long-discredited false leads in evolution theory, i.e. the “evolutionary timeline tree chart” that has long been abandoned as unworkable, and fossils allegedly showing primates evolving into humans that were actually either diseased humans or other animals as fact. You would be surprised to know how many of the things that were taught in science class has been quietly abandoned, how much more needs to be pushed from the classroom, and would be if the media held that community to the same scrutiny that it does evangelical and fundamental Christianity.

But that is just arcane science that has little relevance to our daily lives, so what harm does it do? Fine, except that the realm of false prophets also exists in government and policy. Many fantastic, dire predictions have been made and influenced the direction of governments and leaders to who knows what ends. Example? Global warming. Except that they couldn’t call it “global warming” anymore when many places in the world started experiencing prolonged unseasonably cold weather! So, the cause of the cold weather was attributed to greenhouse gas emissions also and “global warming” became “climate change.” I remember a specific prediction from the global warming prophets that had a lot of people frightened: after Hurricane Katrina and other large, powerful destructive hurricanes in 2005, the global warming community (the “climate change” moniker had not yet been instituted) claimed that the increase in the power and severity of the storms were caused by global warming, and that we could expect worse storms – and more of them – thereafter. They predicted that the hurricane season of 2006 was going to be one of the worst in history! All their models said so! What happened? We haven’t had anything approaching Katrina since.

Another example: peak oil. The experts a few decades back claimed that we had maxed out our oil production, that we had exploited the main reserves, that oil production was heading for an inevitable decline, and that we needed to alter our lifestyles and change our way of life to conserve what oil was left or face a global energy crisis. A few years after those dire predictions, some of the largest oil reserves in history were discovered, as well as technological breakthroughs for accessing oil, and possible new sources of oil, such as from shale and sand. (Do not mistake me for an oil company and fossil fuels advocate, quite the contrary I am fully supportive of alternative energy, and believe that a lot of great technology in that area is not being exploited.) And there was also the “overpopulation crisis.” It was promoted by folks who believed that if the world’s population reached 4 billion, it would become unsustainable, and the result would be mass famines and starvation, diseases, wars and environmental degradation. The only solution was immediate global population control programs! Well, now the world population is 6.75 billion and counting.

There is more. Remember when mad cow disease was going to ravage our food supply? Oprah Winfrey said “I’ll never eat a hamburger again!” (Of course, these folks OPPOSE abstinence from fornication as a defense against sexually transmitted disease as the Bible commands, but constantly promotes abstinence from eating the animals that God gave us dominion over and called lawful to eat.) Remember when bird flu was going to kill thousands, or tens of thousands? What about swine flu? Brought to you by the same false prophets who told you to run out and buy cellophane and masking tape to protect yourself from a nuclear terrorist attack after September 11th.

The prophets told us in the 1980s that AIDS was going to wipe out a significant portion of the U.S. population with little or no regard for lifestyle, and needless to say they were wrong, as AIDS rates only increased among homosexuals, the promiscuous and drug users while declining for everyone else. The lead false prophet was surgeon general C. Everett Koop, who used this false information to promote sex education and condom giveaways in schools starting in 3rd grade. Speaking of sex education, the false prophets told us that it would drastically reduce the venereal disease and teen/out of wedlock pregnancy rates, and it did neither. Instead, both shot through the roof, and further there are now new venereal diseases that even condom manufacturers acknowledge their products are useless against (not that you will ever hear that in any public school sex education program).

But wait, there’s more. The prophets told us that abandoning classical education for new education reforms (often based on Freudian or Marxist theories) would lead to markedly improved results and a transformation of society. They were totally wrong, American academic achievement has fallen off the map, and no one talks about it. The prophets told us that divorce and illegitimacy were GOOD for women, children and even most men, but education, poverty, drug use and incarceration rates say otherwise. The prophets claimed that we could eliminate racism through education. How is that working out? They claimed that we could eliminate poverty through government action, and now not only is poverty still a reality (as Jesus Christ said it would in Mark 14:7, not a favorite text among liberal theologians!) but unprecedented numbers of people in America and worldwide are reliant on government assistance of some kind. The false prophets also claimed that the triumph of Soviet communism was inevitable, and the best course of action was resignation, acceptance and learning from and becoming more like them, only to have the Soviet Union collapse and many remaining Marxist regimes like China and Viet Nam adopt more capitalistic economies. Those who predicted that the war on drugs and the war on terror (especially Afghanistan and Iraq) could be effectively and quickly won? Whatever happened to them?

The sociologists who said that eliminating censorship laws and allowing the free trafficking of pornography would make us more progressive and improve relations between the sexes? They have been nowhere to be found as rapists, child molesters and other sex criminals have proliferated, multiplying like rats. The social theorists who claimed that putting criminals in jail wouldn’t lower crime rates because the root causes were economic? Wrong, and verified when crime rates still remained lower despite two severe recessions and deep cuts in social services. (Well, street crime is lower anyway. White collar crime, the rich in their vain attempt to sate their lust for greed, remains through the roof. But the Bible said that this would happen concerning the wealthy also … see the book of James, which is not a favorite among political conservatives or those who teach the false prosperity gospel.) And another example: remember Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s claim that we had to immediately adopt a stimulus package to keep unemployment from hitting 8%? Unemployment has been at or near 10% for over two years! Anti-Christ? Probably not. False prophet? Definitely.

So, on one hand you have ONE Harold Camping, who again due to his rejection of the Holy Trinity and of many Bible texts (he forbids his followers from fellowshipping in local churches in violation of Hebrews 10:25) should not be considered a Christian is a false prophet. On the other hand, you have MANY worldly prophets who due to their embrace of ungodly, anti-Biblical ideas, doctrines, philosophies and imaginations that exalt themselves against God (2 Corinthians 10:5) that are utterly, totally and completely wrong all the time. Now both groups of false prophets are wrong for the same reason: their rejection of Biblical revelation as true, infallible, inerrant, and the final authority in all matters, and not merely things necessary for salvation. But the media and the elites shine the light on Camping to defame and discredit Christians who actually do adhere to the Bible while doing their best to cover up the fact that they so wrong so often on so many issues to the great harm of so many is appalling. It is hypocrisy at best, and a conspiratorial cover-up at worst. If anything, talking about Camping gives them an excuse to keep from having to address the huge mess that these folks have made of the economies, governments and societies of the world. Further, it allows them to transfer the blame from their failed policies – and the rejection of Jesus Christ and the Bible which reveals Him ideology that motivate them – to Christians, as if Christians are undermining their efforts.

Christians, for instance, are blamed for illegitimacy by opposing sex education. Christians are blamed for AIDS by opposing homosexuality. Christians are blamed for poor educational performance for opposing evolution. Christians are blamed for global warming for opposing climate change legislation. Christians are blamed for the wars and tension in the Middle East for supporting Israel and not a Palestinian state (by the way, I reject Zionism, and “Christian” Zionism is especially repugnant to what the Bible actually says, and John Hagee and not a few other false prophets follow this flawed school of interpretation). Christians are called misogynist for adhering to what the Bible says about the roles concerning men and women in the church, in marriages and homes and in society, and for opposing the murder of abortion. Christians are blamed for “Islamophobia” and “anti-Semitism” and “anti-Mormonism” for refusing to deny that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven, and accused of undermining cultures with our missionary work. And the list goes on and on.

And it is only going to increase. As more and more ideas based on a rejection of the Bible and even of general revelation (see Romans 1:18-32) causes still more decline and failure, anger will increase against Christians. As the world continues to reap the fruit of the sin and wickedness that it sows, it will increasingly see Christians as scapegoats. Instead of repenting of their sins and acknowledging those as the true source of the misery and calamity, the blame will be on Christians for failing to get with the program.

This will climax in first sporadic but then general and organized attempts to silence Christians and remove us from their midst, in the hopes of keeping us from hindering their “progress.” This is far-fetched, you say? Not in the least, because it has already happened. An example is not merely the brutal repression and murder of Christians on a massive scale in the Soviet Union, China, Germany, Sudan and other totalitarian (whether Marxist, Muslim or fascist) regimes in the last century, but the experience of the church in the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire’s wealth, power and culture were declining due to the decadence and incompetence of its ruling classes, and from Nero to Decius, they saw Christians as a scapegoat.

The legitimate Christians refused to join in their state religion (an odd mix of paganism and patriotism not dissimilar from what goes on in our country today, including in not a few churches) so the Roman “gods” were angry. The Christians refused to join in their public activities (regrettably this is not a mark of contemporary Christianity!) so they were called “divisive” and were accused of undermining the common culture (in addition to not being patriotic!) that was allegedly needed to have a cohesive, strong empire. And Christians preached and taught against the immorality, wickedness and depravity of the people, the rulers and the times. They preached against the rampant adultery, homosexuality, violence and child molestation. They preached against the wanton excesses of the upper classes (again, not a mark of contemporary evangelical Christianity, unless the upper classes in view are Hollywood, government bureaucrats and other liberal elites). And they preached against paganism, not only by the people but the official state religion (again, the evangelical Christian preacher who even speaks of the freemasonry and occult that was vital to this nation’s founding and has been influential in it ever since is rare).

Then, the persecution began as sporadic and localized, but climaxed in a brutal, sustained attempt to completely rid the Roman Empire of Christianity. And despite the estimated ten million Christians that were killed by the Roman Empire (something that you will never see mentioned in history books or depicted in movies, as they are more wont to depict Christians as murderous crusaders and the like) and the carnage of the past hundred years, that is only a shadow of the real bloodbath to come. You see, unlike Harold Camping, I do not adhere to a rapture belief. Instead, I believe the Bible when it says that when the anti-Christ comes, it will be given to him to make war against the saints, and to overcome them. I believe the Bible when it says that the time of tribulation, of great sorrows, will be of such severity that it will be cut short so that the saints, the elect, will survive it. And I believe that the saints that were mentioned in Revelation and Matthew 24 that will see that horrible time are not Jews, or those converted by Jews during the great tribulation, but Christians.

And that is what it is all about. That is why turning an obscure preacher with questionable doctrine into an international news story lasting several cycles was done. It is why Westboro Baptist Church, a cult that has existed for decades, is only now becoming international news. It is why Terry Jones, an obscure leader of a small congregation, became an international pariah for burning a Koran when not only Muslims but the United States military routinely burns Bibles!

It is why terrorists attacks committed by atheists like Timothy McVeigh and Eric Rudolph are attributed to Christians. It is why violence against abortion clinics and doctors is an issue oft raised against Christians despite the fact that less than 5 such incidents have occurred in over 20 years, and only 1 in the past 10. The Hutaree militia drew headlines and a massive sting operation from the federal government as a Christian terrorism threat to rival that posed by Al Qaeda, and it turned out to be just a bunch of guys spinning yarns over the Internet.  Yet, the Marxist “liberation theology” types, not a few of whom were trained Soviet infiltrators, fanned the flames for any number of bloody murderous third world Marxist coups with their organizing and “preaching”, and the truth about their activities – and the level of support that they received from their ideological and religious fellow travelers in the U.S. – has never been documented by the media, Hollywood or our schools. Neither has the true history of our own “civil rights movement” – how it duped the black church and many well meaning white Americans into supporting Marxist subversive tactics, and how that movement was also organized by and rife with Soviet agents and sympathizers – been told, and nor can you expect them to spill the beans on their own false prophets.

The agitation propaganda against Christians will continue in the future just as it did in the Roman Empire. Christians should be heedful of the times, which means that we must be aware of what is going on, aware of where it is headed, and aware of whose agenda it is serving. That is why Christians should end these “battles” over “being represented in Hollywood” and the “culture wars” and “religious right politics” (and religious left politics) in favor of opening our eyes to the true state of affairs. Instead, we should study our Bibles, study about the early church during its time of persecution before Christianity was co-opted by the Roman Empire so that by learning about the church’s past, we can learn about the future – our future. Of course, the Bible tells us that Jesus Christ will win in the end and vindicate and save His church. But make no mistake: just as Jesus Christ suffered Gethsemane and His passion before His resurrection and glorification, the church, being less than its Master Jesus Christ, must also suffer many things. Christians must be prepared so that we might stand during the time to come, and endure to the end. This is a battle that will be won not by guns, money or governments but by faith in the God who is fighting on our side and prevail.

It must be asked: which side are you on? The side of God, or of the wicked? Though Camping was wrong, his error only proved the Bible to be correct. The Bible makes it clear that the wicked perish and that Jesus Christ and those who believe in Him will triumph. If you do not believe in Jesus Christ, make no mistake, you will be counted among the wicked, because no matter how good you perceive yourself to be, before a holy and perfect God you are a sinner. I urge you, repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved.

Three Evolution Facts That Are ILLEGAL To Teach In Public Schools

Posted by Job on June 25, 2007

1. Evolution contradicts the second law of thermodynamics, the law of entropy increase.

2. Genetic mutation, the very engine of modern neo-Darwinism, is almost always catastrophically destructive to an organism, which severely challenges the notion that mutation with natural selection ultimately leads to higher complexity.

3a. After 140 years of digging up the earth, there still remain enormous holes in the fossil record, the missing links that account for tens of millions of years of evolution, which is why many leading paleontologists, most notably the late Stephen Jay Gould of Harvard, argued for punctuated equilibrium – giant leaps – in evolutionary development, rather than the slow and gradual ascent argued for by scientists like Dawkins.

3b. Darwin makes it clear in The Origin of Species that evolution was not developed as a theory to explain the origin of life but as a theory to explain the fossil record. Thus, the theory had to accord with existing fossil finds.

Again, this is why they are trying to keep us out of college so we will be able to talk about things like this: see THE NEW YORK TIMES FAVORS BANNING CHRISTIANS FROM COLLEGE! Now of course, I am aware that there are plenty of scientific theories that will never be proven but are still accepted as valid. I am also aware that evolution gets attacked while those theories do not because the other theories do not directly contradict a fundamentalist Christian worldview as evolution does, and therefore that is the only one that fundamentalist Christians are motivated to attack. But the fact remains: if you are able to locate an inconsistency in relativity or quantum mechanics, you are able to legally discuss it with your high school physics class. With evolution, you are not. And the reason for that is precisely BECAUSE evolution opposes fundamentalist Christianity: evolution is absolutely necessary for people who hate the Bible and want to create a social, legal, political, economic, etc. framework based on rejecting it.

Man’s Genetical Hardwiring Toward Religious Belief

Posted by Job on June 7, 2007

From BornToWin.Net, a most excellent teaching ministry.

Is it true that man is “genetically hardwired” towards religion? According to Tony Blankley, some neuro – scientists think so. One thing is clear. Man is hardwired with a system of logic. I didn’t understand years ago that computers are hardwired with a logical system that included a language. If you didn’t know know the language, you couldn’t do much with the computer. Some friends gave me my first computer. I suspect because they hadn’t been able to make it work any better than I could at first. I turned it on and started pressing keys, but nothing of interest happened. I could make letters appear on the screen, but the letters didn’t do anything.

I sort of felt like the proverbial monkey at a typewriter, banging out random symbols. And them someone told me the magic word: DOS. But what was DOS? Ah well, there was the rub. DOS means “Disk Operating System.” The computer had slots for two disks, so I bought one that said “DOS” and put it in. I still couldn’t do any work, I had to get another disk that had a program. But neither disk would work in just any computer. The computer had to be hardwired with a language so that it would understand what was on the disks.

So the term hardwired entered into the language of psychology and neuro – science as a description of that part of the human mind we are all born with. Every child born into the world arrives with a built – in system of logic. We don’t have to be taught it, because it is hardwired into us. The brain itself is “wired” according to a logical system, and the mind operates on that system. We start life witih an untrained logical system with an enormous potential for development.

What makes this interesting is that, in the absence of true religion and faith in God, man will inevitably make up his onw. In primitive societies, they create wooden gods. In intellectual societies, a little more ingenuity is required. Blankley: Some neuro – scientists see evidence that man is genetically hardwired to be disposed to religious conviction. If this is so, it might explain why even among the French – the most secular culture on earth – only 25 percent claim to be atheists and a full 60 percent believe in a spiritual component to life. It might also explain why the environmental movement tends to veer towards a religious, rather than a scientific, sensibility.

There are two things I found of special interest. One is that you cannot eradicate religion from the human being by education. If you could, the French would have done it long ago. Maybe this accounts for the persistence of religious faith in this country despite of an educational system that is legally hardwired to eradicate it. I also notice the suggestion of religious sensibility in the environmental movement (*my note: the Gaia religion). The idea of a religious instinct is important. Geese are hardwired to migrate. Man is hardwired to make sense out of his world – what Viktor Frankl called a “drive to meaning.” And making sense out of the world involves some sense of direction, thus prediction. Or, in biblical terms, prophecy. Now, I pause to reflect on an obvious truth. Man didn’t wire himself. Nor did his system of logic evolve from neurons, any more than than the logic of my computer evolved from a collection of wires. Both are the works of a designer/creator. Any suggestion that man is hardwired to do anything is a suggestion of design and object.

Yours in the service of true religion, Ronald L. Dart

This Nice Muslim Fellow Teaches At An AMERICAN University

Posted by Job on April 6, 2007

See link here. Your tax dollars – and tuition bills – at work. Doesn’t it make you optimistic about the future? Only if you are the sort that looks forward to the total chaos that will set the stage for the beast (the anti – Christ) to take power.

Baylor University, See What Your COWARDICE Has Wrought? SPIRITUAL DECEPTION!

Posted by Job on April 5, 2007

See link here where this well meaning but spiritually confused  student, motivated by the treatment that the  is getting exactly what they want because fo the Christian leaders of that campus ran and hid rather than stand up to their lies and preach the gospel to them. Reading the statements of the student who is trying to get Baylor University to become more accomodating to homosexual sin, it is obvious that she knows nothing about what Christianity actually is and means. But that is not the bad part. The bad part is that based on the actions of the Baylor University administraton and professors, if she ever does learn the truth about Christianity, it won’t be from Baylor.

“Our goal is to have a University that is tolerant of sexual minorities. (No such thing exists. All that exists is people who choose to sin against the Bible’s commandments concerning sexual behavior, whether homosexuality or heterosexual adultery, fornication, harlotry, etc.) We feel that spiritual superiority and judgment does not further our Christian message, but degrades it. (Obviously the statements of someone who never actually reads the New Testament.) Fueling attitudes of fear and hatred towards those of homosexual orientation is wrong, regardless of how one feels about how the Bible interprets homosexual practice.” (It isn’t “how one feels about how the Bible interprets homosexual practice”, but rather that the Bible on a continuous basis overtly and clearly calls homosexuality sin, AND CLAIMING OTHERWISE IS A LIE. It is all about whether one loves God and homosexuals enough to tell them what the Bible says about their sin and what will happen to them if they continue to claim that their sin is anything but and continue to promote it and refuse to try to personally come out of it.)

“Baylor has had policies that have changed as a result of the way society has changed,” she said, citing changed policies on dancing and interracial dating as examples. (More worldly lies. The Bible NEVER condemned interracial dating. To the contrary, Yeshua HaMashiach Himself came from the line that originated with the marriage of a Jew and a Moabitess. David sinned by stealing the Jewish wife of a Hittite convert. Moses married a Midianite. ANYONE who was willing to convert to the Jewish religion was allowed to intermarry. And that was THE OLD COVENANT. Under the New Covenant, CHRISTIANS OF ALL RACES ARE ALLOWED TO MARRY EACH OTHER. As far as the dancing … please. That was legalism from the beginning. The Bible specifically tells us to dance praises to the Lord. We are just not supposed to imitate the worldly dances, or dance in worship to any other God or worldly idea. By abandoning racism and legalistic doctrines, Baylor University became MORE conformed to God’s Word, not less, and using their doing a better job of obeying God as an justification for breaking it only makes sense to a mind owned or oppressed by lying demons.)

“I really do hope it changes the school,” she said. “We’re supposed to be a Christian university. We’re supposed to be inclusive, not exclusive.” (YES YOU ARE. YOU ARE SUPPOSED INCLUDE GOD BY EXCLUDING SIN. MORE LIES FROM THE BIBLICALLY ILLITERATE.)

Here’s Baylor University’s response: “Baylor is comfortable with conversations regarding human sexuality.” Your words say one thing but your ACTIONS say another, Baylor!

Now, this nonsense has gained mainstream acceptance not only outside the church but inside it as well. The only way that these lies were ever going to be refuted is if Christians stood up to those who traffic in it with the truth. But instead of standing up with the truth, these “Christian” cowards who run Baylor University are allowing their own students to believe a lie because they will not challenge the lie or the liars face to face. By doing so they themselves commit just as big a sin as the homosexuals do, and unless they repent and change their ways, you had better believe that a righteous God who commanded us to promote and defend the faith no matter the cost will judge them for it.

Homosexual Liars Winning Converts During Their Anti – Christ College Tour

Posted by Job on March 22, 2007

See link here, and another link in an Atlanta newspaper by and for homosexuals.  I still say this: instead of barring them from campuses or only giving them limited access like Baylor University did, why not bring them on and explain before them and to everyone else what the Bible says about their sins? If they are going to claim that the Bible does not apply to them, ask them who else the Bible does not apply to? Murderers? Thieves? Adulterers? And that is what is wrong with the church today. We are afraid of sin and sinners. We have gotten so weak in our conviction in the Word of God that we are afraid of debating sinners like these for fear that they will be more convincing. You could get a 10 year old to stand before these sinners with a Bible and ask them “precisely what is it about Corinthians do you not understand? And if you are going to reject what Corinthians says about homosexuality, are you also going to reject what it says about love?” If I were a “religious right leader”, I’d be BEGGING to be on TV with these people. If I were a televangelist, I would PAY THEM to come on my show so that I could expose them for what they are. But the big time Christian leaders and the people who run these colleges have gotten too soft and comfortable, and when that happens you no longer want to fight, and you no longer have faith. Which is, lest we forget, exactly what happened with Pharisees and Sadducees during the time of Yeshua HaMashiach. While the rest of their nation was suffering under poverty and the Roman brutality, the Pharisees and Sadduccees were colluding with the Romans, and had privileged positions of wealth and money as a result. Anything that would threaten their position had to be defeated, including their own Messiah, God in the flesh, to save them from their sins. Well, I guess if you were to make a public example of a young sinner on national TV, the world will reject you and you will lose your position, wealth, influence, etc. And that is precisely why they are running and hiding from these sinners, and it is the same reason why the religious leaders could not stone the woman caught in the act of adultery: because of their very own sin of loving the world. We should NEVER run from any opportunity to promote and defend the gospel; we should NEVER run from any opportunity to tell someone the truth about their sins and the consequences of them. You know, by standing for the truth and by letting these young sinners know that this “ theology” is inconsistent with not only the Bible but basic morality (again, how is it that homosexuals alone get their sins exempted but no one else does?), they might actually convert somebody! But I guess holding onto your position is more important than some kid’s eternal soul, right? If you are a Pharisee/Sadducee, then of course it is.

Homosexual Activists Descending On Baylor University Today

Posted by Job on March 19, 2007

See link here. The fact that they visited the Mormons at Brigham Young University proves that these people have no interest in Christianity, but rather are only interested in forcing legitimate Christians into blasphemy and transgression against God’s Word by calling good evil and evil good. Seriously, that the Bible calls homosexuality sin is as clear as it calling murder sin. What’s next, a “freedom ride” for murderers, claiming that the Bible should be “reinterpreted” to justify their sin?

Father YHVH in the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach, please bring these sinners to salvation; may they come to the realization that Your Word is true. And Lord, please keep Your children from giving in to the pressure and deception to cause them to deny the truth and righteousness of Your Word. Amen.

And THESE Were The People Who Criticized Bob Jones University?

Posted by Job on March 7, 2007

Yep, you are right. Stuff like this going on at our college campuses is NOWHERE NEAR AS BAD as banning interracial dating. Right? Anything to say about this, civil rights leaders, especially those of you who happen to be ministers?

College Student Claims He Can Prove God Spoke Matter Into Existence In Genesis

Posted by Job on February 15, 2007

Here is the link. This is why they are trying to keep us out of graduate school! Please note the reference to “Hunt said he was spurred on in his work because the advanced physics and other courses he was taking were advancing propositions that sometimes didn’t match up.” and “Hunt said science has been proving the Genesis account in classrooms for centuries, “in spite of the fervency to promote evolution and big bang theories.”

One of the primary reasons why they are not wanting Christians in scientific fields is that the evolution theory is full of holes. As a matter of fact, evolution fails most of the major criteria for being a scientific theory (let alone fact) according to the Aristotlean scientific method, which is the basis of western science and has been for centuries. When pressed about that fact, the only responses are “well, you can’t prove creationism either!” and “why are Christians holding evolution to such a high scientific standard?”

As a matter of fact, the theory of evolution keeps “evolving” not so much as in response to new discoveries in the field (although to give the other side equal time, they do claim to have discovered the “transitional forms” fossils that creationists claimed did not exist and thereby disproved evolution), but in response to the many effective challenges by Christians. (Not all people who acknowledge the huge flaws in evolution and are now beginning to criticize it are Christian or even religious, but Christians have been the most consistent and motivated attackers of the theory in the west.) So, now they are trying to kick us out of college in order to deny us the training and standing to challenge it. Now keep in mind – if evolution was as “proven” and “airtight” as they claim, there would be no reason to run and hide from creationists!

They claim that challenging a proven fact is a waste of time and is bad science, and that is why no challenges to evolution can be countenanced anyplace outside the church. That is a lie, as everyone knows that challenging known facts is an integral part of the fields of science, logic, and philosophy. As a matter of fact, my 10th grade math teacher from my VERY SMALL TOWN used a series of mathematical “proofs” to prove that 2 + 2 was not equal to 4; an exercise that he learned in college. My high school physics professor gave us a long calculus exercise that they use when they need to divide by zero that he learned in college. Scientists and other educated people argue against fact as an exercise all the time to sharpen their logical and analysis skills and to expose and plug flaws and holes in their work.

Go see a Ph.D. dissertation or master’s thesis defense. The professors challenging the candidate will oppose things that they know to be true and that they personally disagree with to test the degree candidate’s competence, work ethic, thought process, and ability to defend his position all the time. If they DIDN’T attack him and his work in such a manner, they wouldn’t be doing their jobs. So, the reason why debates and challenges on evolution are not allowed in the academic sphere (or any other sphere for that matter) is because the adherents to evolution know that it cannot stand up to the attack. They cannot explain, for instance, even the underlying principle … how events can randomly arrange themselves to create something. That defies the definition of RANDOMNESS for one thing, and another thing as many destructive events should happen as constructive ones. They use the “billions and billions of years” to try to evade having to discuss this, but the fact is that it does not even take an equal number of destructive events to negate the constructive ones. It only takes ONE destructive event to undo 10, 100, or even 1000 constructive events that may have taken millions of years to form! You do not even need to be a postdoctoral candidate in string or game theory to figure this out; an 8th grader who has just spent 4 weeks studying statistics can.

More to the point, you do not even need destructive events! All you need is for the constructive events to stop, or for the constructive events to stop building on each other, or for the constructive events not to be replicated elsewhere. And that is another biggie. Sure, perhaps over billions and billions of years, ONE amino acid might have formed, and then formed itself into ONE virus cell. But in order to explain life on earth, it would have taken more than ONE to have been formed. LOTS would have had to have been formed, and not only in the same place, but all over the world! There is no explanation for why or how multiple organisms evolved at the same time in the same places (or in different places), which would have had to be a requirement for such trivialities as reproduction. Say, for instance, that a female frog evolved first. It would have had no mates, so when it died, no more frogs. A female frog and a male frog would have had to evolve at the same time and in the same place. And suppose even the first male and female frogs died before they had a chance to reproduce. Again, no frogs! Basically, frogs would have had to keep evolving until there were enough of them around at the same to produce a critical mass required for reproduction, especially in an extremely harsh environment as the earth was billions of years ago.

Evolutionists have no answer for questions like this, so they simply declare evolution as “beyond debate.” The only reason for this is because denying evolution would be admitting that there is a Creator, and acknowledging the Creator makes a person accountable to him. Richard Dawkins himself openly acknowledges that a major motivating force behind his war against religion is that religion tries to tell him what he can and can’t do. (Dawkins also in his book is reported to have acknowledged at one point that some things regarding evolution were unprovable and illogical, and he then demanded that people accept them anyway and not bring them up or make challenges to the theory based on them; an appeal to the same type of not only blind faith but A DESIRE TO BELIEVE A LIE that he himself spends the entire book accusing Christians of.) At least he is honest about his motivations, and the rest of the evolutionists should be also. Just more evidence why you should give your life to Christ today! Follow The Three Step Salvation Plan!
