Laurentino works for 680 The Fan. Of course, he quickly recanted – to a degree – when he received the predictable response by irate black callers. (The reaction would have been far more were the black audience of 680 The Fan not relatively small and more importantly far more conservative than the black population of Atlanta as a whole.) My point here is not to label Laurentino a racist, but rather to give yet another clear indication of how the anti – Christ mindset is deeply ingrained into our society so much that even very conservative people with Catholic backgrounds like Laurentino would even thing of equating the mistreatment of a human with the mistreatment of a dog. Now the act of slavery and animal cruelty itself is probably similar from a spiritual warfare perspective: the same evil spirits that would cause you to wantonly mistreat an animal through dogfighting would also cause you to mistreat a person through slavery. Thus, animal rights activists do have a point when they mention that people who abuse animals later go on to victimize people. And there are Bible verses that could be construed to oppose animal cruelty, and both are in the portion of the scripture – the Torah or the instructions – that liberals hate so much (who claim that such portions were later added to the scriptures by harsh “Deuteronomists” who blamed Israel’s fall to Babylon on their sins, and falsely claimed that they were written by Moses in order to give their theology legitimacy). They are Deuteronomy 25:4: “Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn” and “Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother’s milk” (contained in Exodus 23:19, Exodus 34:26, and Deuteronomy 14:21). Now there are a variety of ways to interpret those scriptures (including some Orthodox Jews who interpret the latter to mean that it is a sin to eat a cheeseburger) but correlating both to animal cruelty is reasonable.
But still, the notion that you would compare the suffering of a man to the suffering of a dog is clearly one that is offensive to God. There is a reason why the term “dehumanize” exists. The term presumes the elevated status of man which comes not from man’s ability to reason or create, but from the notion that man was a special creation of God, in His own Image, higher than the angels. I am certainly no ecumenist, but the world’s three monotheistic religions that have so influenced the mindset of the civilized world (both in the west and the near east), Christianity, Muslim, and Islam, all hold this to be factual. By contrast, you have pagan traditions that contrive equality between man and animal. All you have to do is go to India, and see where starving people will not eat cows because they hold them sacred, and then there is the jain Buddhism evil that was co – opted by Martin Luther King, Jr., who denied the deity of Jesus Christ (see Proof From His Own Writings That Martin Luther King Jr. Was NOT A Christian), whose adherents center a great part of their lifestyles around not stepping on insects because they regard them as having the potential to become people in a subsequent lives – and indeed may well have been people in their prior lives. Evolution is just another false religion that denies a true afterlife, that denies a true God, and denies a true eternal punishment in a lake of fire. But we can see that even people who profess Christianity and do not believe in evolution run the risk of adopting the anti – Christ mindset because of their immersion in the culture. Conservatives oppose bi – lingual education for the children of Mexican immigrants and others whose primarily language is not English, and they support instead “full immersion”, knowing that once deprived of their native language in an academic environment, the non – English speaker will quickly and forcibly become fluent in what should be our nation’s common tongue. (Do not believe me to be opposed to people knowing multiple languages, quite the contrary were it up to me all children would learn Spanish and Hebrew. Learn, write, and speak in as many languages as you choose so long as one of them is English.)
And the same is true of Christians. Even if Christianity is your “native mindset”, if you are fully immersed in our anti – Christ culture, you will take on the anti – Christ mindset and equate the brutal dehumanizing subjugation of Africans as a sacrifice to the idol of mammon (money and power) as being little different from what happens to dogs or any other dumb animal. Therefore, according to the idolatrous blasphemous anti – Christ mindset, there is no such thing as “dehumanize” because there is nothing special about a human! Of course this is utterly satanic, because Satan hates God, and he hates man because man is the image of God. Satan knows that if he can get man to defile and murder himself, not only does it grieve God, but it disrespects Him! Everything that Satan does is all about rebelling against God, defying Him, and shaking his rotten fist in God’s Holy Face! Well Satan can have his wretched twisted idea of fun for a time, but his day of judgment and destruction is coming. And so is the day of judgment and destruction of all those who equate dumb common animals with those who were made in the Image of God and special by God, and therefore pervert themselves with all manners of abomination that arise from their blasphemous mindset. Now you see why abortion is so important to Satan and his people, and why so many so – called Christians support the procedure. Just as having people in the pagan ancient Near East sacrifice their children to Molech and Baal as part of pagan fertility rites was to use man to mock God and provoke His wrath we do the same in our “modern Christian west” with our practice of abortion (which we are now trying to export to the so – called third world, as if they do not already have enough problems without introducing yet another level of godless barbarity).
So, how does the Christian prevent himself from taking on the mindset of a wicked world totally ruled by Satan? As is with everything, the answer is in the Bible. Leviticus 20:7 –
Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God. We are supposed to be holy for God is holy (I Peter 1:16) and reject the world and all its wickedness. Now we saved by grace and not the works of the law, so we are still to be in the world. Why? Because the world is where the battleground of good versus evil is, and we are a part of that battle whether we like it or not. The stakes of this battle are 1) the souls of men and 2) how long Satan gets to escape judgment (and there are some theologies out there that claim that the two are related). Yet in today’s times Christians, even theologically and politically conservative ones, are not separating themselves. Perhaps the best example is how the former strictness of charismatic Christianity has given way to the vain, profane, worldly, and even utterly carnal and vulgar variety that has now turned the gospel into glamor, profit, and base sexuality (see An Expose Of Just How Bad Juanita Bynum And Thomas Weeks Are and the rest of my “Sex Sells, Especially In The Church” series … the vast majority of these are charismatic, evangelical, and fundamentalist Christian preachers like Rick Warren – Sex Sells, Especially In The Church: Rick Warren’s Lust Driven Evangelism – who actually markets and encourages the use of colognes and perfumes with sexually arousing pheromones in them for use in evangelism! Part of Warren’s “church growth” strategy is to send young men and women with sexually immodest apparel on such as the ones detailed in Sex Sells Especially In The Church: Exploiting The Christian Market no doubt so that people will want to go to church not because of Jesus Christ but rather to please their own carnal lusts!).
So since contemporary Christians are not only refusing to abstain and refrain from the ways of a world perverted and corrupted by Adam’s sin that will one day be destroyed by fire (ignore the lies of false preacher Jack Van Impe who claims otherwise … there will be a new heaven and a new earth, Jack Van Impe, and NO JACK VAN IMPE OUR PETS WILL NOT BE WITH US IN HEAVEN!), is it any wonder that so many of us are taking on the satanic anti – Christ mindset. So the question is: if we Christians are willing to debase, defile, and dehumanize, and thereby deny our God – image with regards to dogs and other dumb animals, how else are we going to do it? Maybe we should ask the members of the clergy that now exist exclusively to serve canines and other dumb soulless animals – contact information for such professional ministers of the cloth can be found in this post Christians, Now They Have Preachers For Animals! – and find out!
It is all about circumcision, people, not according to the law but by grace. We have to have circumcised hearts, minds, and wills if we are to oppose the anti – Christ worldly mindset; if we are to fulfill II Corinthians 10:5: Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ! It all starts with salvation i.e. The Three Step Salvation Plan, but even that there is a process of dying to self and hating and rejecting the world daily!
