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

The Religious Right: A Roman Catholic Plot Of Pat Buchanan Hatched In 1966!

Posted by Job on May 19, 2008

Now The Silence of the Fundamentalist Lambs by Gary North, a former Reagan official, states that the religious rights true origins were much earlier by way of the Rockefeller crowd, except that the original effort was on northern liberal and moderate Protestants and Roman Catholics. They did not regard fundamentalists and conservative evangelicals as politically important because of the doctrines of such groups. North states that  the political mobilization of conservative Christians took the new world order crowd by surprise, and that they quickly needed to be co – opted before things got out of hand. This article above sheds a little light on how this happened. We already know that Rockefeller employee and freemason Billy Graham (and many similar itinerant evangelists) had spent decades laying the ecumenical groundwork between these two groups, plowing and fertilizing the soil (and you know what fertilizer is!). According to the article above, Buchanan and Nixon:

From Day One, Nixon and I talked about creating a new majority,” Buchanan told me recently, sitting in the library of his Greek-revival house in McLean, Virginia, on a secluded lane bordering the fenced grounds of the Central Intelligence Agency. “What we talked about, basically, was shearing off huge segments of F.D.R.’s New Deal coalition, which L.B.J. had held together: Northern Catholic ethnics and Southern Protestant conservatives—what we called the Daley-Rizzo Democrats in the North and, frankly, the Wallace Democrats in the South.”

Now most of that article is merely liberal ideological nonsense, but it contained that little nugget. That Buchanan later went on to oppose the Bush family and ultimately leave the Republican Party is of little consequence. Buchanan was a key force in the rise of Nixon and of Reagan after him … a movement made possible by political ecumenism. Buchanan got out because the political ecumenism movement that he started now includes support for abortion, homosexuality, illegal immigration, and of course global economic and political controls via environmentalism. These are things that the new leaders of the GOP led by such figures as John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mitt Romney, etc. – and truthfully by George H. W. Bush – have in store. It makes no matter who wins this fall. If McCain wins, they will say that it was because he moved the party to the left. If Obama wins, they will say that the party will have to move even further to the left than McCain to win. And no matter how far left the GOP goes, the religious right will follow. Most of the leaders of the religious right are bought and paid for props and plants like Pat Robertson, appearing with Al Sharpton in a global warming commercial sponsored by Al Gore, and is China’s #1 advocate in the United States, and they command a large following. And most of the rest of the followers have such a heavy investment in the religious right that they are not going to leave anytime soon, and their loyalty to George W. Bush even as he has come out and claimed that everyone worships the same god and David Kuo’s book detailing how Bush mocks Christians behind their backs demonstrates it. 

Some people are rejecting this movement only because of frustration over it not working, and not because the whole movement was theologically suspect to begin with. For instance, consider the term “Judeo – Christianity.” It cannot be supported Biblically, especially when you consider that modern Judaism is not Sinai Judaism, but the creation of the Pharisees that 1) rejected Jesus Christ, 2) hid while the Romans was destroying their nation (the creator of rabbinic Judaism, Yochanan ben Zakkai, cut a deal with the Roman generals, was allowed to take scrolls from the temple, and escape), and 3) kicked the Messianic Jews out of the synagogues by placing a curse against Christians in their liturgy. It only makes sense politically and culturally. Roman Catholics accept it only because of their opposition to Islam, and Protestant Christians only accept it because of dispensationalism (and opposition to Islam). 

It is becoming more and more apparent that the religious right is a secular movement with another agenda and another master. I am no fan of Pat Buchanan, but the fact that he himself left the religious right when he realized that he was but a pawn in a larger game speaks volumes.

Another Reason Why Christians Should Leave Public Schools

Posted by Job on November 19, 2007

THE LATEST GROUNDS FOR ABANDONING GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS

 http://www.newswithviews.com/Yates/steven31.htm

By Steven Yates
November 10, 2007
NewsWithViews.com

Last month California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a legislative package effectively banning the phrases ‘mom and dad’ and ‘husband and wife’ from the state’s government schools as discriminatory against homosexuals. The same measures would allow boys to use girls’ restrooms and vice versa. Critics are charging that this will enable California schools to finish their journey towards becoming full-fledged indoctrination centers for those promoting a homosexual-bisexual-transgender lifestyle.

SB777, a major component of the package Schwarzenegger signed, bans anything that could be interpreted as negative or discriminatory against homosexuality or any other alternative “lifestyle” choices. Another part of this package was AB394, which targets teachers and parents for indoctrination through “anti-harassment” training. There are, of course, no special protections from harassment written into these bills for, e.g., Christian students.

Ripple effects are already being felt. Analysts have noted, for example, that California is the largest market in the country for many textbook publishers. The latter will likely not spend the money it would take to produce separate editions for other states. Thus where California goes, the rest of the nation will be dragged, kicking and screaming if necessary.

This is political correctness running straight off the cliff. In my book Civil Wrongs, published back in 1994, I argued that if political correctness was not stopped, it would very soon embrace homosexuals. This would place it on direct collision course with Christianity not just in academia but in the workplace where it had already gained a solid foothold via radical feminism and the “hostile workplace environment” that grew out of the Clarence Thomas / Anita Hill hearings. Leftist affirmative action provisions for homosexuals were already being introduced in ultraliberal states such as Massachusetts.

More specifically, I argued in Civil Wrongs that leftist affirmative action programs had resulted in reverse discrimination against white men, and that political correctness had become one of the hard left’s most effective counterassaults against legitimate criticism of programs that offered favors to some at the expense of others. It worked through mind control—by enabling opponents of leftist programs to be demonized. I argued that if political correctness was not exposed for what it was and ended, it would embrace more and more groups nationally, including homosexuals, until it became one of the dominant features of this society. Opposition to the political agendas of these groups would be criminalized little by little, in the form of “hate crimes” legislation.

I hate to say it, but you were warned, especially since schools at all levels have been the primary testing grounds for all manner of social experimentation.

There remains, however, a way out, and Christians in particular need to pay attention to it before it is too late. The way out is to abandon government schools. Under present circumstances, thinking Christians are more justified than ever in the belief that government schools have become repositories of indoctrination into evil. They need to remove their children from these schools pronto, and either homeschool them or send them to private Christian schools.

During my Civil Wrongs period I, too, was locked into a box where I believed government schools could be “reformed.” Then I became acquainted with Rev. E. Ray Moore who was just setting up Exodus Mandate, which calls on Christians to leave government schools. Rev. Moore’s book Let My Children Go! Why Parents Must Remove Their Children From Public Schools Now goes further. This meticulously researched book compares the history of public education in America with what the Founding Fathers wrote in this country’s founding documents. Rev. Moore shows there is no evidence that the latter ever intended education to be a government responsibility.

Government schools as such didn’t really begin until the 1840s, when Horace Mann visited Prussia and returned with the “Prussian model.” This model was alien to our founding traditions. According to the latter, following British philosophers such as Locke, children do not belong to the state. Prussia, following German collectivists such as Hegel, reversed this. Mann promoted an Americanized version of the Prussian model. Government schools caught on slowly but eventually became ubiquitous and then mandatory. The word kindergarden is derived from Prussian. It means, roughly, “child garden”—growing children, like vegetables, as in a garden.

Regrettably, in the late 1800s, few sensed danger. Initially, there didn’t seem to be any.

Then, in 1902, John D. Rockefeller created the General Education Board. Its initial publications contained chilling statements like “In our dreams we have limitless resources and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present education conventions fade from their minds, and unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a responsive and rural folk.”

This was a recipe for social control, and when the Rockefeller Foundation began to bankroll John Dewey’s Progressive Education movement a couple of decades later, the use of government schools as laboratories of social engineering proceeded apace—delayed, perhaps, only by the second world war. We can see the results all around us—a significant percentage of public school graduates cannot read or write well enough to fill out a job application. They cannot make change without machines or do simple arithmetic without calculators. They cannot get Thomas Jefferson in the right century much less describe any features of his thought. They cannot walk up to a world map and find, e.g., Iraq (or even the U.S. and find, say, Louisiana).

Is it any wonder foreigners are cleaning our clocks in areas like science and engineering?

One of the key missions of government schools in modern times has been to disrupt the values children inherit from their parents. This has been admitted openly. Benjamin Bloom, a giant among modern education philosophers and inventor of the ‘cognitive’ vs. ‘affective’ domains dichotomy, once said, “a large part of what we call ‘good teaching’ is the teacher’s ability to attain affective objectives [attitudes, values, beliefs] through challenging the students’ fixed beliefs …”

There has been little evidence that the remaining part involves real education in any recognizable form. Here are the exact words of two 1990s School-To-Work educrats, David Hornbeck and Laren Resnick respectively: “[E]ducated employees have higher turnover rates, lower job satisfaction, and poorer promotion records than less educated employees.” “Most employees under this model need not be educated. It is far more important that they be reliable, steady, and willing to follow directions.” With the dominance of this kind of thinking, it is small wonder we have college students who cannot write a coherent paragraph!

With the primary unstated mission of government schools being social engineering—for political correctness and corporate-globalist economics—should we be surprised that homosexuality and other alternative “lifestyles” are now being openly promoted in them, that criticisms are being labeled as “hate speech,” and that commonplace phrases such as “mom and dad” or “husband and wife” are banned by a state legislature in a bill signed by a celebrity governor?

The underlying philosophy of government schools has been hostile right from the start to fundamental American values of limited government and freedom of the individual from dominance by state and corporate interests. This hostility, as we noted, was invisible for a long time. The schools seemed to be doing a good job. Today it is out of the closet. Government schools, absent any instruction in decent values, are now dangerous. They are breeding grounds not just for politically correct indoctrination but for gang activity, drug abuse, and even sexual abuse of children by teachers. WorldNetDaily has a published roster of no less than 114 cases of female teachers who have been either convicted or credibly accused of sexual assaults on students!. This may be just the tip of the iceberg! An Associated Press investigation suggests that there may be more than 2,500 cases of sexual abuse of students by teachers!

There is no evidence these problems can be “fixed” from within by conservative “reforms.” They are now part of the fabric of public education itself. The only solution—especially for Christian parents—is to get their children out.

Rev. Moore, of Exodus Mandate mentioned above, recently told me, “The difference of opinion between those supporting Exodus Mandate and conservative public school reform will soon reach a critical moment. In the past, this has been a debate among friends on how to proceed, but no longer, with the growth of homosexualism in the public schools. The conservative public school reformers and their Christian Right allies who advocate little children being ‘salt and light’ in public schools will deny us a chance for victory by not joining efforts to set up a K-12 Christian or home school system.”

He explained further, “These same conservative reformers have failed to make any gains over the humanist left in the last 30-40 years of public school reform. The conservatives have lost all the major battles and will continue to lose because they follow an unbiblical strategy.” Rev. Moore believes Christians have a biblical mandate to take charge of the education of children, based on passages such as Deuteronomy 6: 1-9, Proverbs 22:6, Psalms 78:5, Ephesians 6:4, Joel 1:2-3, and elsewhere. “The way to victory,” he said, “is now for Christian families and churches to set up a whole new K-12 Christian education system. This will save our Christian children and give other families hope for their children, too. This is the way of revival in our nation.”

He warned, “The rise of homosexualism in the public schools will continue to grow and finally engulf the entire system. It is inevitable now. Applying Romans 1:24, 26, and 28 to the institution of public schools that have officially and legally denied God as Creator and Lawgiver, we can see that God Himself is ‘handing them over’ to moral corruption. To now try to reform such an institution is to fight against God, too! Currently there are over 4,000 GLSEN clubs in public middle and high schools in the U.S. Many are in Bible Belt states. This problem is not just in California but has already reached the Southern states, too.”

Rev. Moore concluded, “We can now safely say that Christian families who leave their children in such morally harmful places are not responsible parents.” Pastors, too, have a moral obligation. “Pastors who fail to warn their flocks and [do not] help set up K-12 Christian education in their churches are not being faithful shepherds.”

His is a harsh-sounding verdict, but it may be the most defensible one. Nor is he alone. Randy Thomasson, of Campaign for Children and Families, told WorldNetDaily, “We’re calling upon every California parent to pull their child out of California’s public school system.” He added, “The so-called ‘public schools’ are no longer a safe emotional environment for children. Under the new law, schoolchildren as young as kindergarten will be sexually indoctrinated and introduced to homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality, over the protests of parents, teachers and even school districts.”

“There will be no exemptions to this indoctrination,” he also observed. “Private schools and homeschool will be the only sanctuary left for parents in California who love their children and want to protect their sexual innocence.”

Where California goes, the rest of the nation shall eventually follow.

The time has come to abandon government schools while doing so is still legal. There are organizations in every state devoted to providing information, curricula, etc., for home schooling parents. If evangelical Christians in America were to abandon government schools, removing their children not by the thousands but by the tens and then hundreds of thousands, state-sponsored education would implode, along with its political agendas. New forms of education would already have appeared. They would answer to We The People, not they the social engineers. Children could learn the history of the rise of Christian and Constitutionally-grounded freedoms in the English-speaking world, as well as how to use the latest technology.

This kind of solution should not be thought of as limited to evangelical Christians. Presumably there are people who cannot accept Christianity but still want their children to be able to understand something of this country’s founding principles. Presumably even an atheist wants his children to be literate, able to do simple arithmetic, think as individuals instead of as group members, and perhaps question those with money and power. I doubt that the globalist corporate-governmental elites really care two iotas about homosexuality. As with abortion, they see it as a means to an end: global population control.

 

Do parents, Christian or not, want their children to be more than cogwheels in the brave new world of a homosexual-friendly global corporatocracy? Do we, perchance, not want a homosexual-friendly global corporatocracy in our future? What must we do to avoid one? Removing our children from social engineering indoctrination centers might be one very good place to start.

Still Support Arnold Schwarzenegger Christians?

Posted by Job on October 17, 2007

Make no mistake, a lot of Christians, egged on by Fox News, helped put this guy in office. Please read the Bill Keller devotional below to see what this fellow is up to.

If this devotional is a blessing to you, maybe you have a friend or family member
that would like to start receiving this daily word. You can forward this to them,
and they can use the following link to subscribe.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL    WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 17, 2007
***The "Liveprayer 30" -  Sadly, I seem to be the only nationally known 
preacher who isn't afraid to go on the record and take a stand against 
voting for the member of a satanic cult for President.  Make sure you type 
in the WHOLE LINK!
http://www.christianpost.com/article/20071016/29718_Why_Some_Evangelicals_Won%92t_Vote_for_Romney.htm
(Romans 1:25)
Do you believe me yet?  "Mom and dad" as well as "husband and wife" have
been banned from California schools under a bill signed by Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger.  Also under this bill, boys are allowed to use girls'
restrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa, if they choose.  This bill is
meant to appease the homosexual community as they continue to force society
to accept their deviant choice of sex as acceptable and normal behavior.
Also in the news today is a story about Mitt Romney's attempts to woo the
Christian vote.  In the story,  he states "His belief in Jesus Christ as his
personal savior," trying to deceive people into thinking he is a Christian.

In case you haven't heard my message, SATAN IS BUSY DESTROYING LIVES AND
LEADING PEOPLE TO HELL!!!  My question for you today is what are you doing
for the Lord?  When will it be enough for you to step up and take your
stand?  Do you simply watch and do nothing???

My friend, I have been writing every day for 97+ months now telling you how
bold satan is. I don't know if you have seen the latest fund-raising effort
by Planned Parenthood, the organization that counsels women to kill their
unborn babies. It is a $15 tee shirt that says, "I had an abortion." Last
fall, Ms. Magazine actually had an article, "We Had Abortions," accompanied
by the names of thousands of women nationwide who signed a petition making
that declaration. Even a few years ago, people would have never been bold
enough to proclaim to the world that they killed their baby. Sin no longer
has any shame.

As I shared with you last year, there is now a new 24-hour-cable network
called LOGO. It is owned by Viacom that also owns CBS, CW (where the
Liveprayer TV late night program used to be on), MTV, VH-1, many other cable
networks, as well as a movie studio, publishing houses, and a wide of array
of international media holdings. LOGO has programming 24/7 geared towards
the gay and lesbian community. Just a few years ago, people knew
homosexuality was wrong and an abomination to God. Sin no longer has any
shame.

We are living in a day and time when sin no longer has any shame. Those who
call sin for what God calls it are mocked, laughed at, labeled intolerant,
and dismissed as ignorant. The tide has now sufficiently turned that we are
living in a time when it is CRIMINAL in some places to speak out against
what God says is sin. Already there are incredible hurdles to take the truth
of God's Word into the secular marketplace.

People are told they will be fired for sharing their faith at work. We are
asked in many social settings to NOT talk about our faith. Getting the most
ungodly content that destroys lives out to the masses via secular media and
advertising is no problem. However, trying to take the message of Christ and
the truth of God's Word to the masses using those same secular vehicles is
almost impossible. It will soon be CRIMINAL.

You see my friend, SIN CANNOT STAND IN THE LIGHT OF THE TRUTH! The truth of
God's Word exposes sin for the lie that it is. That is why those who choose
sin do their best to silence those proclaiming the truth of God's Word.
Today's anchor verse tells us that there will come a day when they "exchange
the truth for a lie." That is exactly what we are seeing unfold before our
very eyes today.

Truth: Marriage is between a man and a woman Lie: Marriage is between two
people regardless their gender.

Truth: Killing your baby is murder. Lie: It is a woman's right to do what
she wants with her body, including having an abortion.

Truth: Homosexuality is a sin. Lie: People are born gay and there is nothing
wrong with having sex with someone of the same gender.

Truth: Divorce is a sin. Lie: Nobody really expects you to honor your
marriage vows.

So what can you do? First, pray. Never underestimate the power of prayer. We
need to pray for this nation to turn back to God. We need to pray for God to
help us live our lives as true ambassadors of the Lord Jesus Christ. We need
to pray for God to give us courage and boldness to proclaim the truth of His
Word to those He brings into our life each day. Lastly, we need to pray for
God to guide us and direct us where He wants us to be to serve Him. God has
a plan and purpose for each one of our lives, and we must yield ourselves
daily to Him so that He can work through our lives.

Second, share your faith and the truth of God's Word with others. As the
Daily Devotional often encourages you, witnessing is not an option but
something God has commanded us to do. God will open the right doors, give
you the opportunities each day. Your loudest witness will not be the words
you speak, but the way you live your life. PEOPLE NOTICE. The child of God
is "on" 24/7. How you live each day before others will always be your most
effective witness for Christ.

Lastly, find ways to serve the Lord. God has work for everyone to do.
Actually, as Jesus pointed out, there is more work than workers! God has
called all of His children to serve Him, each in a unique way. As you seek
the Lord He will open doors in your life, guide you where He wants you, and
use your life to further the Kingdom of God. EVERY CHILD OF GOD HAS BEEN
CALLED INTO HIS SERVICE! Serving God is how we fulfill our purpose in this
life. Don't be intimidated into NOT serving the Lord!

I love you and care about you so much. It is time for every child of God to
do their part. We can't sit back and expect a politician to solve the
spiritual problems of this nation. We can't expect pastors and Christian
leaders to do all the work. It is the responsibility of each and every child
of God to do their part in serving the Kingdom. Somewhere church became
another form of entertainment, losing its purpose which is to be a community
of believers growing in their faith and being equipped to go out into the
world we live serving our Lord.

I will be praying for you today to hear this clear challenge from God.
Christianity was never intended to be a spectator sport! Take some time in
the next 24 hours and get alone with God and start seriously seeking Him
about what He wants you do to serve Him. It is time for every child of God
to step up to the plate. It is time to do your part!!! Don't be intimidated
into NOT serving the Lord!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
