Sophisticated Witches

Posted by Job on March 6, 2008

From Slice of Laodicea. The title is serious! It is about this former member of Rod Parsley’s church creating a new church that mixes charismatic apostasy (note that I did not say charismatic Christianity, for I do not believe that all charismatics are false) with witchcraft. Ingrid Schlueter’s post is short, so I will go ahead and paste the whole thing below, but go to her site anyway because it has a lot of Christian warfare weaponry on it!

Christian Witchcraft Is Here

Look-ee what’s emerging now. We’re in postmodern times, we’re told. Rob Bell says the Bible is a “human product”, not “Divine fiat”. In other words, we can make things up as we go. This line of thought has now brought us “Christian” witchcraft. A Slice reader sent me a link to a site being promoted in an online group as a new “alternative” Christianity. The Raven Wing website was started by a woman who came out of charismatic churches, including Rod Parsley’s, to start her own brand of Christian witchcraft. Her belief page is a bizarre mixture of Christianity and goddess theology. The Raven Wing site declares:

Think you have christians & christianity figured out? click here for the most amazing website ever to exist relating to christianity & all things christian. guaranteed to open your mind & move you to the edge!

The edge of the abyss, that is, and right over it, frankly. The link, by the way, takes you to a website ZoeCarnate.com for cool new “Christianity”, including an ad for an emerging conference, and links to all the emerging sites of Dan Kimball, Doug Pagitt, and a host of others listed under the category, “Dispatches from the Great Emergence”. The ZoeCarnate site is also promoting The Shack as must reading for emerging Christians. Read a biblical review of The Shack in Berit Kjos’ article, Deceived by a Counterfeit Jesus.

Readers are invited at the Raven Wing site to attend the Columbus Eclectic Christian Meet-Up where they can “meet other Christians who are also interested in the Old Ways, and The Craft.

This is the Great Emergence indeed.

REV. OPRAH WINFREY IS A SPIRITUAL CRACK DEALER!

Posted by Job on March 3, 2008

(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

Do Something in Your Life That Doesn’t Make Sense to Pagans

Posted by Job on February 28, 2008

From Sharper Iron by Jason Janz at 1:00 am February 27, 2008. 344 views. Filed under: Uncategorized
Author’s Note: For the past nine months, I have been consumed with the vision of planting a church in downtown Denver. This vision has called me and my family to a life of travel, a part-time job, and constant change. As the owner of SI, I have felt detached from the site I started almost three years ago. I appreciate the crew that has pinch-hit for me. For the next week, I’d like to update you on what God has been showing me over the past nine months. I will do so by publishing some articles that I wrote for our prayer partners.In his 1931 book, The Epic of America, James Truslow Adams said, “If, as I have said, the things already listed were all we had to contribute, America would have made no distinctive and unique gift to mankind. But there has been also the American dream, that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for every man, with opportunity for each according to his ability or achievement.” The American Dream has permeated this nation, but it has also spilled across the oceans to all nations of the world. Everyone understands the American Dream, and he pursues it with all his might. While we are familiar with seeing images of desperate Cubans endeavoring to land makeshift rafts on the beaches of Florida in their pursuit of this dream, many Americans are no different. They just look better in the pursuit. But under the cover of well-clothed, well-educated, well-cared-for Americans is a relentless pursuit of the same idea—a better, richer, fuller life than what I am currently experiencing. The pursuit leaves every player exasperated for one simple reason—it’s not the way God intended us to live.

God gives us strong admonitions to live for another world, another country. Our mode of operation is to be that of a pilgrim, not a consumer. When pagans compare our lives to theirs, we should look like idiots in their eyes. But I’m afraid most of the time we look pretty normal. We should have different economic strategies (kingdom giving), different time schedules (acts of mercy; times of personal, family, and corporate worship), different family priorities (parenting God’s way, time together), and different pursuits (kingdom of God, glory of God, people of God). However, I’m afraid that when the lives of most Christians are examined, they make complete sense to the average pagan. Materially, we have houses, cars, retirement plans, and five kinds of insurance so that we can have “risk-free” living. When it comes to our time, we spend more time having fun than serving the poor. We spend more time playing with our toys than meeting as believers, provoking one another to love and good works. I’m afraid that our diversions have become our delight in America. When it comes to what we live for, I’m afraid we display Babylonian desires for the latest and greatest . . . just like the pagans.

This thought has rolled around a lot in my mind mainly because of the reaction that I get from many Christians when they hear about our vision to plant a church in perhaps the darkest area of our city. On one hand, I’ve had very good friends wrinkle their noses when they hear that we are moving to the Five Points Neighborhood, the second-highest crime neighborhood in the city. I’m not sure of all the reasoning behind the wrinkle. It could be their own distaste for the area. It could be that our burden just doesn’t make sense. Or could it be that my life never really echoed a life that was willing to risk for the sake of the gospel? Did this decision seem out of step with my self-preserving bent? I don’t know. I just know that it’s time to repent of my self-serving ways and do something in my life that doesn’t make sense to pagans or . . . the average Christian . . . or perhaps even me. Without knowing it, I have often drunk at the fountain of the American Dream.

Am I scared? Absolutely. I do not want my home broken into. I do not want my kids hurt. My wife and I were on a plane flying to Orlando when I read a story in Christianity Today about a wife who did just what we are hoping to do in the city. On night she was raped while her husband was at a church meeting. (You can get her book here.) That stuff scares me to death.

On the back cover of John Piper’s book Don’t Waste Your Life, he says,

I will tell you what a tragedy is. I will show you how to waste your life. Consider this story from the February 1998 Reader’s Digest: A couple “took early retirement from their jobs in the Northeast five years ago when he was 59 and she was 51. Now they live in Punta Gorda, Florida, where they cruise on their 30-foot trawler, play softball, and collect shells …” Picture them before Christ at the great day of judgment: ‘Look, Lord. See my shells.” That is a tragedy.

Sadly, this type of wasted life is seen all over the Scriptures. When the twelve spies went to look at Canaan, ten of them shrank in fear even though God had already promised victory. Thousands of people wasted their lives because they valued comfort over godly courage. The Scriptures tell us that when a kernel of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it yields fruit unto life eternal. We don’t need more life in America; we need more death.

I want to encourage you to take a risk for the cause of Christ. Start some things only God can finish. Go somewhere where you don’t have all the answers before you begin—not for the sake of danger or to be viewed as heroic, but for the sake of the gospel and the glory of God.

  • Teenager, can you think of pursuing something greater this year than academic honors or a starting position? What about starting a ministry from scratch to minister to those in your school or community who need help?
  • College student, what about changing your major and ministry direction to go and be a missionary to a Muslim country where you face the real danger of being killed for your faith? That choice doesn’t make sense to pagans.
  • Moms, can you think of ways to stretch your children to do something that pagans wouldn’t think a child could do?
  • Dads, what about taking a missions trip instead of a family vacation? What about quitting your job, taking a pay cut, and going to work for a nonprofit organization that is doing the work of God?
  • Pastors, would your congregation say that you are risking something for the sake of the gospel in your community?
  • Retirees, are you using the best years of your life for the glory and work of God?

Someone once said that five minutes after stepping into heaven, we will know exactly how we were supposed to live. I know this—if we simply pursue the American Dream, we will hang our heads in shame. However, if we “fall into the ground and die,” we can anticipate a joyful entrance.

Jason Janz, SharperIron site publisher, is planting Providence Bible Church in downtown Denver. Formerly, he served as an assistant pastor at Red Rocks Baptist Church (Morrison, CO). He has a bachelor’s degree in Bible and is currently finishing a master’s degree in theology. He has been married to Jennifer for 10 years, and they have four boys. His interests include pastoring, reading, and wrestling with his boys. He likes SI because of how it helps serve pastors and church leaders.

Still feel like pledging allegiance to the flag, Christians? Or supporting the religious right agenda of compulsive religious observance (school prayer, public religious displays, “war on Christmas” combatants, and oh intelligent design) to some ecumenical homogenized undefined unknown god (Acts 17:23) that you will be legally required to worship but also legally forbidden to call upon his name? Well I ask you … where do you want to take your mark? On your right hand or on your forehead?

Black Republicans Looking To Their Mike Huckabee Jesus

Posted by Job on February 9, 2008

christianpost.com/article/20080205/31079_Black_Conservatives%3A__Don%5C%27t_Give_Up%2C_Huckabee.htm

I kid you not, had this presidential race come along before my eyes were opened a couple of years ago when I read a compilation of the writings of Chinese Christian martyr Watchman Nee “Secrets To Spiritual Power”, I would this very second be volunteering for Mike Huckabee’s campaign, praying and prophesying in tongues speaking the Word of Faith and speaking the prosperity Psalms and Proverbs that God would use this mighty man of God to overturn Roe v. Wade, and maybe even give high level government positions to Kenneth Copeland and John Hagee, both of whom I was fervent fans. Well, maybe we need to raise up a collection to send these blokes copies of “Secrets To Spiritual Power.”

I may be rightfully accused of being unfair, but quotes like this make my blood boil. “And we like that his life story pretty much mirrored the background of many African Americans,” Scoggins added. Excuse me, but weren’t black folks identifying with Bill Clinton not long ago? Instead of talking about how the life story of Mike Huckabee or any other man resembles ours, shouldn’t we black Christians identify with the life and work of Jesus Christ? Like a lot of black men, the carpenter Jesus Christ was a low – income laborer. Which means he knew what it was like to struggle to find work, pay bills, and keep food on the table. Like black people, Jesus Christ was marginalized by society … not only was He not a Roman citizen and was hence subject to that brutal regime’s subjugation of his Jewish people, but even among the Jews He had a low status with no connections to the religious or economic elite and coming from Nazareth, the most disfavored part of northern Israel, which was already less favored than Jerusalem. Put it this way, Jerusalem looked down on northern Israel and northern Israel looked down on Nazareth. So when the people were saying about Jesus Christ “can anything good come from Nazareth?” and “no prophet has ever come from Nazareth”, it was a class/culture issue. So when the early Christians were called “Nazarenes”, it was not a name taken by them but a name given to them by their opponents to mock them because of the despised station in life of the leader of the sect, and to discredit them. Despite His great teachings and mighty works, a lot of people rejected Jesus Christ to follow after the powerful wealthy Jerusalem elite just because Jesus Christ was from Nazareth. Is that not akin to the experience of the American Negro? If these black conservatives realized that when the Jerusalem Jews called the followers of Jesus Christ “Nazarene” it was akin to calling them NIGGER, then they would see that they have no need to identify with the fraud from (false) Hope, Arkansas.

Now maybe some of you might go after Toni Morrison and call Bill Clinton your first black president, well let me give you some more examples of how Jesus Christ is your only black Lord, God, and King. Black men have a low life expectancy, so like a lot of black men Jesus Christ saw His earthly father Joseph die at an early age. Jesus Christ being raised by a man that was not His natural father who at first attempted to abandon the pregnant mother of Jesus Christ should remind us of the very troubled state of the black family that is being wracked by out of wedlock pregnancy, serial monogamy, divorce, homosexuality, AIDS, etc. And Joseph and Mary being turned away and having to have their child in a stable because “there was no room at the end” reminds me of how so many traveling blacks would enquire at the front desks of hotels that had their vacant signs on and be told that they were suddenly filled, or would similarly be told when responding to “now hiring” signs at businesses only to be told that all the positions were suddenly filled. Of course, such a black man would notice when driving away from that hotel that the vacancy sign would remain on with the establishment still taking white lodgers, and he would also see when passing by that place of business the next day and even the next week that the “now hiring” sign would still be in the window with whites filling out applications.

But now I shall get to the best example of how the life of Jesus Christ speaks to the black American experience: like so many black men, Jesus Christ received grotesque treatment from the criminal justice system. You know that old slogan: “there’s no justice, there’s JUST US!” In Jesus Christ you had a man arrested, tried, and executed by people knowing the whole time that the Man was innocent. THEY EVEN RELEASED AN INNOCENT MAN, A MURDERER AND INSURRECTIONIST, IN HIS PLACE! You know how the system, the man keeps the black man down? Well, the Roman Empire and the Jewish religious leaders conspired to put THE MAN (Acts 17:31 ) down. But to borrow from that Maya Angelou poem BUT STILL HE ROSE!

So black Christians, white Christians, black conservatives, white conservatives, black liberals, white liberals, people of all races and political affiliations, stop putting your trust in the systems of the world. Instead, put your trust in Jesus Christ, the One who bore your sins to the cross so that you do not have to pay the penalty for them. Put your trust in Jesus Christ, the one who defeated death and hell so that you can have eternal life through Him. And oh yes, the same goes for you members of the Barack HUSSEIN Obama cult too (who is obviously learning from New Age witch Oprah Winfrey how to bespell people). Stop dealing with the false messiahs and put your faith and trust in the real one. If you have not already, follow the Three Step Salvation Plan today! If you are already a born again Christian, stop following after and putting your trust in these men (and women, Hillary Clinton supporters) and start acting like it.

JAMES DOBSON ENDORSES MORMON MITT ROMNEY!

Posted by Job on February 6, 2008

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The HyperCalvinist Old Trailblazer On Christmas: A Demon Holiday

Posted by Job on December 19, 2007

This is from the original trailblazer, L. R. Shelton, who died in 1971. His successor is Albert Pendarvis, who a couple of years ago was the first non – Arminian pastor I was ever exposed to.

Article: Christmas Was Opposed By Protestants Until It Became Capitalist And Secular

Posted by Job on December 18, 2007

When it was a religious holiday, Christians rejected it as paganism. But when it became a secular “family values” holiday associated with status and wealth, it was embraced. How odd. How American.

Yule New York Yule Holiday Display Vandalized! Police Declare It A Hate Crime! Part Of War On Christmas???

Posted by Job on December 12, 2007

Then again, according to this link and the text pasted (along with my commentary in italics) below, it was a PAGAN display. Then again, Christmas IS Yuletime or Yuletide you know. Which makes this display … oh never mind 🙂 http://www.wivb.com/global/story.asp?s=747915

Police in Olean are investigating the vandalism of a holiday display. Police say someone opposed to a Wiccan pentacle decided to express his or her opinion by running it down Monday night and then sped off into the night. Olean Mayor David Carucci says the vandalism happened around 10:15 last night. (Sooo … do mayors get involved in minor incidents of vandalism of private property often? Or only when witches are involved?)

“Someone has backed up over the curb and run over the pentacle,” Carucci told News 4. Carucci is quick to criticize the action, and is hopeful police will soon find the person responsible. (No problem there. Since we are not in Old Testament Israel, we have no right to take down the groves and high places. In other words, vandalism is a crime and a sin.) Police, meanwhile, are treating it as a hate crime. (NOW we have a problem!)

“We’re going to be treating this as a hate crime,” said Olean Police Chief Terry Schnell. “This has gone far too long, this is getting ridiculous.” (You mean the fact that of all these church shootings by people who stated animosity towards Christianity and Christians where people have actually been killed such as the one that happened a few days ago, not one of them have been declared hate crimes is ridiculous? No, wait, that wasn’t what you were talking about. You were speaking of the horrific violence inflicted upon a pagan display. Sorry. Good to know that you have your priorities in order and care about what is really important.)

The pentacle stood only a few feet away from a nativity scene that sparked a public debate about the separation of church and state. (Too easy. No comment.)

The owner of the pentacle, April Garlow, says as long as the nativity scene remains on public ground in front of Olean city hall, so too shall the symbol of her Wiccan faith. (And you know what? I agree 100%! I also agree with WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT CHRISTIANS HAVING NO RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS OR GRAVEN IMAGES! IF CHRISTIANS WERE TO OBEY THE THIRD COMMANDMENT, DEUTERONOMY 5:8, WE WOULD NOT BE HAVING ANY OF THESE PROBLEMS! And modern Jews … no better. Remember the nonsense at the Seattle airport awhile back where a rabbi activist demanded that a menorah be placed beside the Christmas tree, claiming that “a symbol of their faith be represented”? The airport officials CORRECTLY DECIDED that if they were going to put Christian and Jewish symbols up then they would have to accommodate all of the DOZENS of faiths in the Seattle area, SO THEY HAD TO FORCE US TO OBEY OUR OWN BIBLE BY REMOVING OUR IMAGES! Now I understand that objects were given by God in the Old Testament to USE in worship of HIM. They were NEVER INTENDED to represent God OR our faith in Him. So I say that if Christians are going to hold onto the symbols of our false public cultural religion, let the witches have theirs.)

She’s disappointed, though, that an attempt to acknowledge different religious beliefs has apparently divided her community even further. “This is supposed to be the season of peace and goodwill towards men and I don’t see any of that,” said Garlow. (Probably because the “peace on earth goodwill towards men” was said by the angel to the shepherds when Jesus Christ was born, and that day was NOT in late December to begin with, but rather late September to early October. Late December is when you have always had your pagan solstices, Saturnalias, yuletides, etc. I have no problem with you celebrating your long existing observance during the time that it has always been held. I am just curious as to why we Christians cannot be content with the REAL HOLIDAYS that God gave us. And I say “real holiday” for a reason, for the word “holiday” means “holy day” and since God alone is holy, only God has the right and ability to choose, consecrate, and sanctify a day as “holy.” The observances given to us by God in the Bible are the only true holidays, all else are pretenders. Maybe it will take this pagan witch shoehorning in on the Santa Claus flying reindeer elves yule log mistletoe drunken lascivious office party racket to get Christians to see that. Or then again, maybe not. I will suggest this though: if God wanted us to observe the birth of His Son, He would have told us what day it was on in the Bible. Meanwhile, we do know exactly what days His death, resurrection, and ascension were on, as well as the day of Pentecost don’t we? Hmmm … )

Olean police say the person responsible for crashing into the pentacle drove away in a black Ford pickup, and they’re asking anyone with information to call them. The number for the Olean Police Department is 716-376-5678. (Personally I hope they catch him and he is fully prosecuted. Vandalism is a crime. But realize that this happened only because we have the very type of public symbolic religious displays that the Bible tells us not to have in the first place.)

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.
