Black Republicans Part Of New World Order Just Like Everyone Else!

Posted by Job on June 14, 2008

See link below. Please realize that Colin Powell owed his rise to Nixon and the Bushes, and Armstrong Williams was on the Bush payroll promoting vouchers (government takeover of Christian schools). Edward Brooke is a liberal Rudy Giuliani northeastern Republican who committed adultery with Barbara Walters. Race does not matter people … only a covenant relationship with Jesus Christ does!

WHAT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA SPENDING FATHER’S DAY AT AN APOSTOLIC CHURCH OF GOD MEANS!

Posted by Job on June 14, 2008

All Hussein Obama needs to do to win this thing is to start talking about black illegitimacy and cultural dysfunction in a serious way. Seriously, THAT IT ALL HE HAS TO DO. Funny that the Wall Street Journal, a major organ of the globalist elite – which really has not attacked Obama in any serious way, which is curious as even Fox News’ “attacks” on Obama have been silly stuff like “terrorist fist jab” and “Michelle Obama is Barack’s baby mama” that are more likely to make people vote FOR the guy than AGAINST him – has not attacked the fellow either. But what has the Wall Street Journal done? Well Juan Williams, who like Barack HUSSEIN Obama whose ancestors are not from America and JUST HAPPENS TO BE THE LONGTIME TOKEN BLACK LIBERAL VOICE ON FOX NEWS, has penned this Father’s  Day piece bemoaning the illegitimacy problem, including in the black community: The Tragedy of America’s Disappearing Fathers

One day, in a juvenile facility near his home in Jersey City, a 15-year-old black boy pulled him aside for a whispered question: Why did he write in “Somewhere in the Darkness” about a boy not meeting his father because the father was in jail? Mr. Myers, a 70-year-old black man, did not answer. He waited. And sure enough, the boy, eyes down, mumbled that he had yet to meet his own father, who was in jail.

Obama family at new Chicago church for Fathers Day. First time out since quitting Trinity United Church of Christ

WASHINGTON–The Obama family has a tradiiton of going to church on Fathers Day; that’s what Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), the presumptive Democratic nominee told Jimmy Kimmel when he taped an interview with the talk show host on Friday. But the Obama family quit Trinity United Church of Christ a week ago, in the wake of divisive comments by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Father Michael Pfleger. Where to go? This Sunday, the Obamas leave their Kenwood home on a landmark block on Chicago’s South Side to attend church at the nearby Apostolic Church of God, 6320 Dorchester Ave.

But Obama will have to work on Fathers Day. Obama will “speak about the responsibilities we have as fathers and parents to help our children achieve their dreams,” his campaign said. Parental responsibility is a theme Obama has sounded before.

Last February, in Beaumont,Texas, Obama drew wild cheers as he told a mostly African-American crowd that parents need to shape up, turn off the TV, help their kids with their homework and stop letting them grow fat eating Popeyes chicken for breakfast.

“It’s not good enough for you to say to your child, ‘Do good in school,’ and then when that child comes home, you got the TV set on, you got the radio on, you don’t check their homework, there is not a book in the house, you’ve got the video game playing,” said Obama.

FOOTNOTE: Dr. Byron Brazier, a minister at the Apostolic Church of God, ran as an Obama delegate from the seventh congressional district in Illinois.

LINK to Lynn Sweet column about Obama using bully pulpit in Texas telling parents to shape up and cut out the Popeyes.

I always felt that all Al Gore had to do in order to beat George W. Bush in 2000 was to talk about illegitimacy. A lot of people do not remember this about Gore, but the guy was a “conservative family values Democrat” along the lines of Gary Condit during most of his career in the House and Senate … the Gores are the ones responsible for the little parental advisory stickers on rock and rap music CDs. Just like all John Kerry had to do to beat George W. Bush in 2004 was talk about Bush’s connections to Saudi Arabia OR challenge him on getting Usama bin Laden. The fact that neither Gore or Kerry did EITHER made me question whether either guy really wanted to win – or was supposed to win. If Obama does not start talking about black illegitimacy, all it will mean is that McCain was the guy selected by the various groups that both candidates AND Hillary Clinton are meeting with (Bilderbergs, Rothschilds, Soros, CFR, et al) to occupy the White House. My current theory: if these folks choose McCain, it will be to continue the warfare against CERTAIN MUSLIMS in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa for the next four years. If these folks choose Obama, it will mean that they have decided to be conciliatory towards CERTAIN MUSLIMS. Of course, that means that Obama will be used to wage POLITICAL and CULTURAL war against CERTAIN CHRISTIANS. What sort am I speaking of? Brother IndependentConservative has one example: Legal Persecution of Christians in the West Has Begun.. Sword At The Ready has another: Biblical message now criminalized – Penalties created for those who criticize homosexuality. And I recall one of my first posts on this site when it was created last year: Here It Comes: The First Law To LEGALLY ENCODE CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION IN AMERICA

Please keep in mind that there is NO WAY that Turkey would be considering joining the EU had the European Union not totally cast off its Christian heritage and culture. Not that I advocate making Christianity worldly through heritage and culture, but still for outsiders that know nothing of the true spiritual nature of Christianity and HAVE BEEN LED BY THOUSANDS OF YEARS EVERYONE RANGING FROM POPES TO CRUSADERS TO RELIGIOUS RIGHT DOMINIONISTS INTO FALSELY EQUATING CHRISTIANITY WITH GOVERNMENT AND CULTURE BECAUSE MIXING GOVERNMENT AND CULTURE IS A KEY FEATURE OF OTHER RELIGIONS I.E. ISLAM, JUDAISM, AND HINDUISM AS WELL AS OTHER IDEOLOGIES LIKE DEMOCRACY AND MARXISM, the “Christian nation” thing is offputting. But you know that the rest of the world associates Christianity with white people, capitalism, imperialism/colonialism, and traditional European culture and values. Electing the son of a Kenyan Muslim whose false Jesus Christ promoted abortion, homosexuality, Marxism, and universalism would fulfill the dreams of the Harlem renaissance writer that rejected Christianity for Marxism Langston Hughes. This fellow wrote “Goodbye Jesus Christ” (see a commentary at John Piper’s SeeingGod.org on the fellow and his departure from Jesus Christ for black history month), and then penned this Marxist vision for America: Let America Be America Again. (Please realize that like all of W.E.B. Du Bois “Harlem Renaissance” cronies, Hughes was a mere Marxist propagandist, a fact that you will never hear in public schools or in the mainstream media.)

So, Obama’s visiting theologically conservative black churches – including that of James Meeks and Byron Brazier … the media lumps him into the same category of Jeremiah Wright and Michael Pfleger despite the fact that Meeks is actually a conservative evangelical – may be laying the groundwork for HUSSEIN Obama to stake out socially and culturally conservative positions for the black community similar to those of Bill Cosby that will please all but the most extreme elements of the left. And if the extreme elements of the left, the “a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle” and the “marriage oppresses women and children” crowd (yes these people actually do exist … see

Father’s Day really is the most disgusting thing imaginable. Mother’s Day started out as a women’s anti-War protest, but there is no even slightly justifiable reason for Father’s Day, other than stuffing more commodities that no one wants down the exhausted and overstretched maw of the American people. Hideous! Lets all work for and look forward to the destruction of the Family, Private Property and Irrational Religion.

  on this post) and Obama will actually appear moderate, which is what he needs to win the election. It would be his, well, “Sister Souljah moment.” So keep an eye on the campaign. If this does not happen, then McCain will win and Christians can expect the U.S. to fight directly and by proxy more wars in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and around the world which will result not only in more violence but more inflation, poverty, and economic insecurity. But if it does happen, Obama will win, and a full push to make Biblical Christianity basically illegal will commence. That is why I say that Christians should vote for NEITHER, because the result would be voting for Stalin or Hitler.

MIKE HUCKABEE TO WORK FOR WORLD’S BIGGEST PORNOGRAPHER RICK WARREN CRONY RUPERT MURDOCH!

Posted by Job on June 12, 2008

Per the link below, the fellow – who actually defended Jeremiah Wright on MSNBC – has been hired to be a contributor for Fox News. Now Rupert Murdoch is a Council on Foreign Relations guy. So is Rick Warren. When Huckabee was being hammered by the anti – Christians in the right wing media for not knowing anything about foreign policy, HE HIRED A MEMBER OF THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS TO GET HIM UP TO SPEED ON THAT TOPIC! But hey, it is just me being a conspiracy – monger I guess. All of these things are just coincidences.

It Is All About POWER People: Evangelical Leaders Meet With Barack HUSSEIN Obama

Posted by Job on June 12, 2008

Now in retrospect, we Christians should have been just as motivated to speak out against evangelical leaders meeting with George W. Bush. But hey, a lot of us are still deceived into believing that supporting pro – homosexual pro – abortion anti – Christ new world order system globalists in one party (Republican) is somehow more “Christian” than meeting with the same type of people in the other party! But hey, if anything, this shows that the very people that have spent the last 30 years vouching for the likes of Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, Trent Lott, Mitt Romney, etc. have never been on the side of Jesus Christ, and that there is no need to be deceived by religious right darkness any longer. See link below:

Evangelical Leaders Meet with Barack Obama **Updated**

There’s lots of dialogue going on this days. Evangelical leaders met with Barack Obama this week to dialogue some more. They haven’t figured out what aborted babies in America already know—that Obama supports the right to slaughter preborn babies in the womb and those out of the womb who manage to survive a induced labor abortion. Obama twice voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act in the state of Illinois. This bill was supposed to allow babies to live who managed to survive an abortion procedure, and it was introduced after nurses like Jill Stanek protested having to watch little babies die on dirty laundry carts after failed hospital abortions. Jill recalls holding one such down’s syndrome baby for 45 minutes because nobody else would hold him while he died. They had put the infant on a cart in a laundry room to die. This, Barack Obama supports and it’s on the record in the state of Illinois. So extreme are his views on abortion that the Washington Post carried a piece on just how extreme he is. Michelle Obama drafted a fundraising letter for his Senate campaign that warned about how zealots wanted to stop partial birth abortion and that her husband would keep it safe for all women. The Obamas support partial birth abortion where the baby’s head is born, skull punctured with scissors, the brains sucked out and the baby then delivered and hurled into a bucket. That’s real hope and opportunity for all, Mr. Obama. What a hero. These evangelical leaders like T.D. Jakes, who said he had goosebumps when Obama got the nomination, should be forced to watch what Jill Stanek did, holding a baby that had been murdered at his mother’s request, all because he had down’s syndrome.

By the way, people, this video below is what ought to give you goosebumps, and not of the kind that T.D. Jakes was speaking of.

Should A Christian Issue Marriage Certificates To Homosexual Couples?

Posted by Job on June 9, 2008

This post by a bunch of Jesus Christ – hating Barack HUSSEIN Obama supporters (a site that oozes hatred for Jesus Christ and Christians all over it) over California court clerks refusing to process GOVERNMENT marriage certificates for homosexuals makes me wonder. I say that a Christian should not perform an abortion unless it is done to save the life of the mother, and under no circumstances should a Christian give out RU – 486. I think that there should be conscience clauses to keep Christians from having to be murderers in the course of having to earn a living in their chosen profession, although the Jesus Christ haters oppose such clauses precisely so they can drive Christians out of the medical profession … I should point out that Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s state of Illinois passed laws requiring pharmacists to dispense RU – 486, so we know where he stands on this issue. John McCain? Well suffice to say that in his 26 years as a Congressman or Senator, he has never once proposed a federal law keeping doctors, pharmacists, and nurses from being forced to choose between committing murder and keeping their jobs despite the fact that such a measure would have passed by a large margin and easily upheld by the Supreme Court. (The fact that Republicans, despite controlling either Congress or the White House and sometimes both since 1980, have never so much as added this item to their agenda proves that they never were a pro – life party, and if that doesn’t prove it then the fact that they have given just as much federal money to Planned Parenthood clinics that JUST HAPPEN to be frequently located in the areas that Barack HUSSEIN Obama used to be a community organizer.)

But not being a murderer – or a knowing accomplice to murder – is an easy clear cut issue. But what if you are an employee in the county clerk office?  Should you refuse to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples in this case? To me that is more of a gray area. Of a certainty the Bible declares homosexuality to be not only a sin but an abomination. But people are going to sin! As America is not Old Testament Israel (and the concept of a “Christian nation” is a contradiction that can be spotted by anyone who reads the New Testament for himself instead of having it interpreted to him by any member of the religious right or left) we are not called to personally hinder people from sinning if it is their desire to do so. Such is not the job of the Christian individual or the church, AND IT ESPECIALLY IS NOT THE JOB OF THE STATE. Instead, the job of Christian individual and the Christian church is to work to prevent sinners from hurting innocent people, and to influence the state to do the same. So yes, abortion murders innocent people, and street crime has the same effect. Thank you Christian right for pointing that out. But then again, so do unjust wars and unjust economic and corporate policies as well as government corruption and white collar crime. Thank you Christian left for pointing that out. Do negative cultural conditions i.e. illegitimacy and drug use create the climate for crime and abortions? Yes, Christian right. But do negative economic conditions also? Yes Christian left. So ultimately, once you get past A. I will not perform an abortion B. I will not dispense RU – 486 and C. I will not knowingly sell a handgun to a suicidal or otherwise mentally unstable person or to a criminal (sorry NRA, and sorry to you too gun grabbers because that is the start and finish of my gun control position) it really is a huge gray area. 

After all, do not think that you will somehow prevent homosexuality by refusing to give someone a marriage license. Even without their behavior sanctioned and legitimized by the anti – Christ state, such people can and will do what they please. How is that different from “a woman who wants an abortion will be able to get one anyway?” Simple: if you give an abortion or dispense RU – 486, that is you committing murder or being an accomplice to one. (Yes, abortion makes criminals out of women and their doctors, to answer the PR challenge of pro – abortion groups.) But does giving out a marriage license to homosexual couples endorse or aid their sins? I will say … well … no more than being a clerk at a convenience store does, where you will sell alcohol, lottery tickets, cigarettes, pornographic magazines, condoms, and who knows what else. (Full disclosure: I worked at a convenience store in a low income area for a brief time and had to quit; I could not take it anymore. But I followed that up with a job at an, er, leading retailer whose entire business strategy is enticing the poor/lonely/depressed/desperate to waste their hard – earned money on worthless merchandise in a vain attempt to buy happiness. Aaaah, retail …) 

I have to say that our society has come a long way from the days when A) motels and inns regularly refused to lodge unmarried men and women in the same room and B) if you could find a motel or inn that would allow you and an unmarried woman to lodge in the same room, IN MANY AREAS IF YOU BY CHANCE OR ACCIDENT REGISTERED YOUR FEMALE COMPANION UNDER YOUR SURNAME SHE WOULD BE LEGALLY CONSIDERED YOUR COMMON – LAW WIFE! Does it mean that our society is less externally moral? Clearly in some ways, yes. But in other ways, no … many of the hotels that would not lodge unmarried men and women in the same room would not lodge black people at all! So the question that we should ask ourselves is not whether our nation at any time was more moral or had better “Christian values” but instead whether our nation at any time had more born again regenerated Christians. Many older people that I talk to, including people who experienced the brunt of our nation’s race and class unfairness, insist that it was. I have no choice but to accept their word for that. But even in that context, the very idea that a nation can have the majority of its citizens be legitimately born again and itself be a moral, righteous, and just society plainly violates everything that the New Testament says. Otherwise, there would be nations – not just individuals but nations – left out of the great judgment against the earth in Revelation. This is not to say that some nations cannot be more decent and moral than others: America is not communist China. But actually legitimately moral? I am sorry, but the Bible directly consistently speaks against it. Otherwise, there would have been no reason for the Bible to say the world hates and has rejected Jesus Christ, and that we are not to put our trust in the things of this world or to be conformed to it.

So the question is this: if the political and legal systems of a city, state, or nation make gay marriage legal – and that does reflect the fallen sinful state of that state or nation regardless of what people indoctrinated from little children into believing that it is a Christian nation; you know our “Christian” FREEMASON, ENLIGHTENMENT, UNITARIAN, and DEIST founding fathers and the whole “pledge of allegiance” in GOVERNMENT schools … teaching VALUES and ETHICS and CULTURE in place of Jesus Christ … regardless of what people indoctrinated in that stuff choose to believe – then what good does refusing to carry out the duties of your job as a representative of the state (or an employee of a corporation) do? Refuse to perform an abortion or hand out RU – 486 (or sell a handgun to someone that has no business having one), and you are refusing to be or participate in murder or any other crime against the innocent. But if the state makes homosexual marriage legal, if you as an employee of the state refuse to give a homosexual couple a license, in my opinion that makes you a subversive insubordinate guilty of violating Romans 13. You don’t agree with civil rights laws concerning homosexuals in this instance? Sorry, but it is the law, and so long as the law does not require you to knowingly harm an innocent person, you have no Biblical justification for breaking it. Otherwise, it is not as if you are sharing the gospel with people. Instead, all you are doing is attempting to impose your will on them. Truthfully, since you have no legitimate interest in these people as individuals – or else you would share the gospel with them – you are actually trying to impose your views on society itself. By trying to coerce either individuals or society to conform to your will rather than to the Will of God as expressed in the Bible, you are sinning. Not only is coercion inherently a sin, but people are not obey God, not you. You are to have no undue influence over anyone that God, your pastor, the state, or your employer has not placed you in a position of authority over. You are disobeying 2 Corinthians 10:2-3 and fighting a secular battle using secular means rather than fighting a spiritual battle with spiritual means. The result is wasted effort that will do no good and possibly do harm. 

If you cannot abide that, then you will just have to quit your job. If you do, good luck finding a job where you won’t have to work for, with, among, or in service to sinners … not only homosexuals but adulterers, fornicators, gossips, liars, thieves, idolators, gluttons, false Christians, you name it. So I say rather than making a show of yourself for refusing to perform your duties in a manner that you promised to when you were hired, and making a public demonstration of quitting your job to show the world how righteous you presume yourself to be by refusing to tolerate certain sinners in the course of doing your job while not only tolerating other sinners at that same job but in many cases in your own church, I say keep your job and do it like a Christian, and that means showing the love for sinners – including homosexuals – that Jesus Christ did.

Bottom line: the world is not the church. The government is not the church. America is not the church. Were it not for the ability of the religious left to deceive people otherwise on “social justice issues” and the religious right to deceive people otherwise with their “family values issues” – and no, none of those have anything more to do with the actual purpose and ministry of Jesus Christ than the other – then we would not have most of these problems.

New World Order Billy Graham Cronies Telling White Evangelicals To Vote For Barack HUSSEIN Obama!

Posted by Job on June 9, 2008

Obama Could Win 40 Percent of Evangelical Vote, Says Expert

A well-connected authority in the evangelical world said in an interview this week that Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama could get up to 40 percent of the evangelical vote. The fascination with the charismatic Illinois senator combined with evangelicals’ effort to not be seen as an appendage of the Republican Party could swing evangelical voters in Obama’s favor, predicted Mark DeMoss – a prominent public relations executive whose clients include Focus on the Family, Franklin Graham, and Campus Crusade for Christ – to Beliefnet.com. (Can we no longer pretend to ignore the clear influence of the new world order types: Council on Foreign Relations, Rockefellers, Bilderbergs, Rothschilds, freemasons, etc. on this crowd? The PR man for Franklin Graham is basically making it OK for evangelicals to vote for Obama, just as Franklin Graham’s father is responsible for the evangelical – Roman Catholic alliance?)

“I will not be surprised if he gets one third of the evangelical vote,” DeMoss said in the interview. “I wouldn’t be surprised if it was 40 percent.” For comparison, the public relations guru pointed out that one-third of white evangelicals had voted for former president Bill Clinton in his 1996 re-election bid during the “height of [the] Monica Lewinsky mess.” (Keep in mind: BILLY GRAHAM WAS A HUGE SUPPORTER OF BILL CLINTON!)

“That’s a statistic I didn’t believe at first but I double and triple checked it,” he said, “I would not be surprised if that many or more voted for Barack Obama in this election.” In terms of Republican presidential nominee John McCain, DeMoss spoke about the lack of enthusiasm within the evangelical circle for the candidate. He said that for months now he hasn’t received an e-mail, letter, or phone call from fellow evangelicals urging that they unite behind McCain and “put aside whatever differences we have.”

“It’s just very quiet. It could mean there’s a real sense of apathy or it could mean they’re waiting for the general election to begin,” he said. “But it’s a surprise, given the way e-mail networks work now.” On McCain’s part, he hasn’t done much to reach out to DeMoss either. DeMoss said he has received one phone call from a McCain staffer about a month ago asking if he would like to help campaign for McCain. But the evangelical leader, who had enthusiastically campaigned for former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, turned down the invitation. (So … Billy and Franklin Graham supported Mormon Mitt Romney. Check, and got it.)

“I told him that I’m a conservative first and a Republican second,” he said. “I was inclined to vote for Senator McCain but not to get involved beyond that.” (And you are a Christian … where? And … Obama is a conservative or a Republican … where? Seriously, people, if I wanted to make this stuff up I couldn’t).

DeMoss briefly mentioned the 2000 incident when McCain lashed out at his former boss, Jerry Falwell, and Pat Robertson. He later commented that McCain’s recent rejection of the endorsements of Pastors John Hagee and Rod Parsley was a “mistake.” (So … rejecting the support of blaspheming demonic heretics is a mistake?) Although the two pastors have some controversial views on theology, both, in terms of values, support what many evangelicals hold dear, DeMoss contends. (Which is precisely why movements centered around “values” instead of Jesus Christ TAKES PEOPLE TO THE LAKE OF FIRE FOR ETERNITY.)

“Here were two conservative religious pastors who were probably out on a limb supporting him,” he said. (What, so they didn’t PRAY and CONSULT THEIR BIBLES before acting? You mean they acted outside of God’s Will? Shocking. Who would have figured it! Then again, that isn’t quite what you said, now is it?) “And he responds to criticism over comments they made and rejects them. That was a slap in the face to evangelicals who are already somewhat suspect of Senator McCain.”

But whatever happens in this election, one thing DeMoss wants to make clear is evangelicals are not “absolutely Republican.” “Polls don’t show that to be true,” he said. (Whatever happens in this election, it is clear that a lot of evangelicals are not following Jesus Christ and comprehending and obeying the Bible, and, well, the polls prove it. And hey, so does the fact that so many evangelicals are following people like you and your bosses!)

Black Ministers Watching Their Words on Barack HUSSEIN Obama

Posted by Job on June 9, 2008

Black Ministers Watching their Words on Obama

HAMPTON, Va. (AP) – An island in a sea of pastel suits, alligator shoes and elaborate pocket squares, the Rev. Jeffrey Bryan stood out at a meeting of black ministers for his simple fashion choice: Denim shorts and a black T-shirt emblazoned with the face of presumed Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama. He’s posted campaign signs and even has snapshots of himself with Obama, who once made a stop at his Newark, N.J., church.

But that’s as far as he’ll go to show his support — there will be no sermons peppered with “Obama in ’08.”

“It’s a historical time for black people, we cannot ignore what’s going on,” said the pastor, who was nonetheless resolute that “you can’t tell people who to vote for.”

In the black community, the pulpit has long played a powerful role in shaping voting decisions. But the role of the church in politics has been under increased scrutiny since uproars involving prominent pastors.

Now, as the nation stands closer than ever to electing its first nonwhite president, pastors face a delicate balancing act: Maintaining the church’s historical status as a bridge between blacks and politics, while being careful not to overstep their bounds — even at a time when their considerable sway with black voters could help shape history.

At an annual minister’s conference in Hampton this week, a gathering of roughly 7,500 pastors, faith leaders agreed they would continue pushing for Obama, personally supporting the candidate whenever they can.

But they were unanimous in saying they would steer very clear of anything that could be construed as endorsement and were careful to frame plans for support as a private choice.

The Rev. William B. Moore, a Philadelphia pastor, said he’s helped organize voter drives in his congregation, given money to the campaign and posted an Obama ’08 sign.

But he didn’t plan much else.

“The black church has, over the years, made that distinction between church and state and God and state. I think the media has made it more than it really is,” he said, later adding, “We know how to walk that line.”

The Hampton Ministers’ Conference, which began in 1914, gathers church leaders to discuss issues of faith and relate them to daily life. As Obama claimed the delegates necessary to secure the Democratic presidential nomination before a crowd of cheering thousands in St. Paul, Minn., on Tuesday, the energy rippled through the conference. Just a year earlier, the Illinois senator used the conference to challenge the Bush administration for failing to diffuse a “quiet riot” of discontent brewing in black America.

By midweek, pastors openly supported Obama’s historic candidacy — but chose their words carefully. Many said they personally endorsed him, but stopped short of saying more.

Robert Franklin, head of Atlanta’s Morehouse College, urged pastors to seize the spirit of the day — one of interracial cooperation — in a speech Tuesday.

“That’s part of the attraction of Sen. Obama,” he said afterward. “He gets that.”

Later in the week, Franklin warned churches against endorsing a candidate. Federal tax rules bar nonprofits from engaging in partisan activity.

His comments reflect a changing landscape in which churches, long an unchallenged force in politics, have come under increased scrutiny.

This election year has seen an effort by the IRS and church-state separation watchdog groups to significantly step up their monitoring of churches and other nonprofits. Obama’s own denomination, the United Church of Christ, was investigated and quickly cleared by the IRS for hosting the candidate at the religious group’s national meeting last year.

Meanwhile, pastors’ sermons are being posted on YouTube and analyzed for any clue to the values of the candidate.

Obama distanced himself from his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, after video snippets of Wright’s sermons were broadcast and the clergyman made contentious public appearances. Obama recently left the Chicago congregation where he had been a member for over 20 years.

John McCain, the certain Republican presidential nominee, has had his own pastor troubles. He accepted, and then spurned, prominent Texas preacher John Hagee’s endorsement and later rejected Ohio Pentecostal pastor Rod Parsley’s endorsement because of their controversial remarks.

Some pastors at the Hampton conference wouldn’t talk publicly about politics, fearful of hurting their church.

One reverend who didn’t want to be identified told an Associated Press reporter he believed some churches might increase security and monitor for recording devices during Sunday morning services.

Some criticized media coverage they say focused on black ministers doing something white ministers have done for years.

Michael Battle, president of the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, pointed to ministers like Moral Majority founder Jerry Falwell and Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson.

“For a long time those preachers have been very,very engaged in this effort to get people to register and to vote for the candidate of their choice — so it is not new to the black church, nor is it new to the white church, to encourage participation in the democracy,” Battle said.

The Bilderbergs Will Choose Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s Running Mate!

Posted by Job on June 8, 2008

See original link: Bilderberg boys will decide who’s Obama’s “chosen” Veep

 

Although coming on like a freight train as the Messiah For Change, Barack Obama’s just another poodle of the powerbrokers when it comes to who will be his Veep. Visit to Mrs. Clinton notwithstanding, Obama’s in no position to play favours in the vice president department, the big boys will decide who fills that slot.

“It has been announced that Bilderberg luminary and top corporate elitist James A. Johnson will select Democratic candidate Barack Obama’s running mate for the 2008 election and in turn potentially act as a kingmaker for America’s future president.” (Paul Joseph Watson, Prison Planet, May 23, 2008).

For the Bilderberg uninitiated, Johnson also selected John Kerry’s running mate John Edwards in 2004 after Edwards had impressed Bilderberg elitists Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller with a speech he gave at the globalist conflab in Italy that year, says Prison Planet. 

For all of their power, Bilderberg Pooh-bahs are just as vulnerable to political speeches as are their lessers known as John & Josephine Q. Public.

Bilderbergers pull the puppet strings of contemporary politicians.  While the media tends to present Bilderberger luminaries as bigwigs in pinstripe suits attending endless secret meetings, they’re the global elitists pushing the envelope on one-world government.

“In reality, the group is shaping some of the primary developments in the domestic and geopolitical arena today, particularly in the context of oil prices which continue to accelerate towards Bilderberg’s target of $200 dollars a barrel.” (Prison Planet).

Some say it is the Bilderbergers behind all market trends.

Having to march along to the tunes of Bilderberg Blues Band makes Obama’s promise for change something of a mirage.

In the opinion of Prison Planet, “It also ridicules once again any notion that an Obama presidency would bring “change” to the status quo of America being ruled by an unelected corporate and military-industrial complex elite.”

“Former Fannie Mae CEO Jim Johnson has been asked by Senator Barack Obama on Thursday to start the search for a viable Vice Presidential candidate,” reports Trans World News.

“Johnson and Obama are starting the top-secret search as Obama edges closer to the Democratic nomination.  Johnson did the same job for Democratic nominees John Kerry in 2004 and Walter Mondale in 1984.”

“The report lists Johnson as a member of “American Friends of Bilderberg,” which is an offshoot Bilderberg front group that has accepted donations from the Ford Foundation to fund Bilderberg meetings where lavish hotels are entirely booked up for three days, by no means an inexpensive feat.  The organization is basically a steering committee for the Bilderberg Group—a secretarial outpost through which Bilderberg conferences are organized.

“Johnson has also directly attended Bilderberg meetings, therefore he can be classed as a Bilderberg luminary.  He attended last years’s meeting in Istanbul, Turkey.

“Johnson is also “A vice chairman of the private banking firm Perseus LLC, a position he has held since 2001.  He is also a board member at Goldman Sachs, Gannett Company Inc., a media holding group, KB Home, a home construction firm, Target Corporation, Temple-Inland and UnitedHealth Group.

“Predictably, he is also a member of the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations.

In 2004 it was reported that John Edwards’ Goody Two Shoes performance in front of the Bilderberg big boys in Italy was a factor in his selection as John Kerry’s Number Two.  Edwards was so in sync with the brass that attendees even dispensed with house rules to applaud him at the end of the speech he gave about American politics.

That time, Johnson himself selected Edwards in a last-minute change decision after it appeared as though Dick Gephardt was going to secure the position.  The New York Post even reported that Gephardt had been chosen and “Kerry-Gephardt” stickers were being placed on campaign vehicles before being removed when Edwards was announced as Kerry’s handmaiden.

Kerry, of course went on to lose to what Prison Planet calls “his fellow Skull and Bones member George W. Bush.

“But with Obama enjoying an 8-point lead over Republican candidate John McCain, this year’s running mate decision is all the more important, with the individual selected likely to have a shot at becoming President in 2012.

“Bilderberg has a proven history of acting in a kingmaker capacity.  Both Bill Clinton and Tony Blair attended Bilderberg meetings in the early 90’s before becoming President and Prime Minister respectively.”

History may record the Democrats bringing both the first black and first female president and vice president to the White House.

Barack Obama may look like the Messiah For Change when in reality he’s just another Bildeberg Boy.

New World Order Alert: Did HUSSEIN Obama And Hillary Clinton Attend A Bilderberg Meeting TOGETHER? I Thought They Were Supposed To Be ENEMIES!

Posted by Job on June 8, 2008

McCain, Clinton, HUSSEIN Obama all working on the same team …

see this Worldnet Daily link

WASHINGTON – Sen. Barack Obama ditched his unsuspecting press entourage yesterday to attend a secretive meeting with Sen. Hillary Clinton.

But where did that meeting take place? Was it at the secretive Bilderberg conference in Chantilly, Va.? So far, neither campaign is talking.

The 56th Bilderberg meeting is still going on this weekend at the Westfields Marriott, according to various sources. But attendance is a well-guarded secret – along with the agenda, which tends toward the promotion of globalist ideas.

Obama’s spokesman Robert Gibbs confirmed Clinton and Obama met but declined to inform the press of the location of the meeting. However, it was reportedly not held at Clinton’s Washington home. Hillary’s spokesman also declined to give the location of the rendezvous.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told Fox News the two candidates met at her house in Washington. Feinstein said she was working upstairs while Clinton and Obama sat by her fireplace.

Asked if Obama attended more than one meeting last night, Gibbs declined to “get into all the details.” Speculation about the pair meeting yesterday began when reporters traveling with Obama arrived at Dulles International Airport, in Northern Virginia, to find Obama was not aboard the plane, as was scheduled.

“Reporters traveling with Obama sensed something might be happening between the pair when they arrived at Dulles International Airport after an event in Northern Virginia and Obama was not aboard the airplane,” the Associated Press reported.

Members of the press were outraged over the way Obama’s campaign organizers covered up the meeting. Reporters were led to believe they would be getting on a plane back to Obama’s campaign headquarters in Chicago with the senator. But while they were in the airport, the presidential candidate remained in the area for a secret meeting.

Dulles is just three miles from the Westfields Marriott Hotel in Chantilly, where Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller, among other globalists, are gathered for the annual Bilderberg Group conference.

“Asked at the time about the Illinois senator’s whereabouts, Gibbs smiled and declined to comment,” the AP report continued.

Bilderberg is a highly-secretive meeting where the most influential men and women of North America and Western Europe meet ostensibly to discuss policy. But the group has spent years promoting a globalist agenda, according to reports from journalists who have penetrated the meeting.

The Bilderberg Group made a press release available explaining the agenda for the meeting.

“The conference will deal mainly with a nuclear free world, cyber terrorism, Africa, Russia, finance, protectionism, U.S.-European Union relations, Afghanistan and Pakistan, Islam and Iran. Approximately 140 participants will attend, of whom about two-thirds come from Europe and the balance from North America,” the release stated. “About one-third is from government and politics, and two-thirds are from finance, industry, labor, education and communications. The meeting is private in order to encourage frank and open discussion.”

Additionally, a list of the conference’s attendees was released and included James A. Johnson, who was named this week to the three-person team vetting possible running mates for Obama. Rampant speculation in the blogosphere says the Obama-Clinton meeting last night was held to arrange the New York senator as Obama’s vice-presidential candidate.

Attendees at the Bilderberg conference included Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Senate majority leader Tom Daschle and Ben Bernanke, the chairman of the board of governors for the Federal Reserve.

Hillary Clinton is no stranger to Bilderberg. Bill Clinton attended the 1991 meeting in Germany shortly before he was elected president. According to reports, he attended again in 1999 when the meeting was held in Sintra, Portugal, and Hillary herself may have attended the 2006 meeting in Ottawa, Canada.

“Why were we not told about this meeting until we were on the plane, the doors were shut and the plane was about to taxi to take off?” one reporter asked Obama spokesman Gibbs in a heated exchange caught on camera by CNN.

Senator Obama had a desire to do some meetings, others had a desire to meet with him tonight in a private way, and that is what we are doing.” Gibbs replied.

“Is there more than one meeting, is there more than one person with whom he is meeting?” asked another reporter.

“I am not going to get into all the details of the meeting.” Gibbs replied.

Obama’s spokesman explained the Clinton meeting was not planned in advance, and it was a last minute decision to attend.

Another link. Another link. Another link.

Be not deceived, Christians, or conformed to the ways of this world … and you John McCain fans please realize that McCain met with this same group of people, the Rothschilds, in Great Britain three months ago

The Error Of The Evangelical Manifesto

Posted by Job on May 15, 2008

The “Evangelical Manifesto.”   Last Wednesday, a group of prominent
Evangelicals released the “Evangelical Manifesto: A Declaration of
Evangelical Identity and Public Commitment.”  The Steering Committee
includes: Os Guinness; Timothy George, Dean, Beeson Divinity School, Samford
University; Rich Mouw, President, Fuller Theological Seminary; and Dallas
Willard, Professor of Philosophy, University of Southern California.  It has
been signed by apx. 80 “evangelical leaders,” though when a trained eye
looks through the list of signers, it becomes apparent what this document is
really all about.

For those who have been part of the Liveprayer family for a while, you might
remember me mentioning the gutless Dr.Mouw back in December of 2004, who
along with Ravi Zacharias, became pawns used by the Mormons to give them
mainstream credibility.  Here is an excerpt from that 12/07/04 Devotional:
“Mouw preceded Zacharias and amazingly apologized, yes, apologized to the
Mormon crowd of roughly 7,000 stating, ‘We evangelicals have sinned against
you. We have demonized you.’ Since when was exposing the false gospel of the
Mormon cult a sin? That is exactly what we are supposed to do! Also, the
last I checked, those who lead people’s souls into everlasting damnation are
demonic!”

First of all, let me state the obvious.  We already have an “Evangelical
Manifesto,” it is called THE BIBLE and it has the greatest author of all
time…GOD!  The real purpose of this document is to create a shift in power
regarding those who are seen as the Christian leaders of our day and those
who speak for the Christian community.  Many years ago, I had to make some
hard choices.  Do I build a giant ministry organization and preach to the
choir like the rest, putting my voice into the same mix as Falwell,
Robertson, Kennedy, Dobson, Graham, and the others, or follow God’s calling
as a true evangelist and reach out to the lost and hurting souls outside the
four walls of the church, and take on more of a prophetic ministry to reach
this lost world with God’s Truth.  I made the decision to pass on the
comfort, prominence, prestige, and financial security of building another
Christian organization, and chose instead  to give my life reaching the lost
and hurting with the hope of Jesus Christ.

That choice has given me the unique position of being free from the politics
of the “church,” and allowed me to not have to compromise the Truth of the
Bible to keep a “Christian business” going.  Like the prophets in the Old
Testament, I have been in the unique position few are in, to deal with the
issues of the day and in people’s lives without worrying about pleasing men,
only God.  My focus has never had to be about raising money for
infrastructure and operations, only for saving souls.  I have no other
agenda but God’s.  My goals aren’t earthly but heavenly.  My legacy won’t be
in buildings or the temporal things of this world that will one day soon be
gone, but the lives God has used me to impact and the eternal souls of men.

Many of those who put together and signed this document are for the most
part those who I have warned you about in recent years, this emerging group
known as the “Christian left.”  Prominent signers of this murky document are
people like Jim Wallis, founder of Sojourners, and Rick Warren, Pastor of
Saddleback and author of the Purpose Driven Life.  A major portion of this
document is spent repudiating Christians involved in politics, and seeks to
replace the fight for life, marriage, and family issues, with a focus on
world hunger, AIDs in Africa, and environmental issues.   It also lashes out
at those who have the audacity to go into the public arena and take a stand
for Christ based on the Truth of God’s Word.  The document says evangelicals
have often expressed “truth without love,” helping create a backlash against
religion during a “generation of culture warring.”  The fact is, we have
been intimidated into silence by those who represent satan!

This is the mindset fostered by the “seeker,” “emerging church,” and “church
growth” crowd that for the past 15 years have watered down the Gospel and
set aside the absolutes of the Bible to attract warm bodies.  What they have
done is created a new subculture of “Christians” who might be saved, but
live no different than the world and easily embrace the lies of the false
religions, cults, and New Age teachings that are leading the souls of men to
hell.  This is why you have people like Oprah who claim to be a Christian,
yet promote the lies of every New Age guru that comes down the path.  This
is why you have people like Sen. Barak Hussein Obama who claims to be a
Christian, yet votes continually to slaughter babies and redefine God’s Holy
Institution of Marriage.  This is why you have Christians who think people
in a satanic cult like the Mormons will go to Heaven.  This is why you have
people who call themselves “Christians,” but deny that the Bible is the only
Truth there is!

Add to this the prominence of pastors who are little more than motivational
speakers like Robert Schuller and Joel Osteen who go into the secular media
when they want to sell their latest book, and brag bout never talking about
sin or the social issues of our day and refuse to answer the most simple
question of the faith, whether Jesus is the ONLY way to be saved or not.  So
people read their books, watch their TV programs to “feel good” and become
part of this new subculture of “Christians” who have no concept of basic
theology and embrace lies like “there are many roads that lead to God.

Don’t believe me?  Here is a typical email we get daily:  “I’m a
Metaphysical Christian and a Human being a child of GOD. I was baptized at
Saddleback Church with Rick Warren.  There is a very powerful wonderful
movement of consciousness going on right now obviously the old way is not
working very well. Watch a few Videos on Esther Hicks etc GOD bless you
too!”  What a load of garbage.  Metaphysical Christian???  The “old way” is
not working very well?  The old way being the Bible?  Ester Hicks is one of
the more popular New Age teachers out there today.  I wish you could see the
feed back I get daily from the Daily Devotional, from the TV program, from
my appearances on FOX News, CNN, and from the videos we post on YouTube.
People who call themselves “Christians,” yet reject the Bible as the only
Truth there is, and embrace beliefs that are in complete contradiction to
what the Bible teaches.

How did this happen?  It started with the church.  Forty years ago the
mainline denominations brought in pastors who were from liberal seminaries
and denied the inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible.  They quit preaching
the Gospel of Jesus Christ and opted for a social gospel instead.  At the
same time, you had this growing Christian subculture of Christian TV, radio,
and publishing, geared to and marketed to Christians.  Major ministries and
Christian organizations were birthed that generated tens of millions
annually, and for the most part did very little  but preach to the choir and
self perpetuate themselves from one year to the next.

Billions have been raised and squandered on the temporal things of this
world instead of on the work of God.  We have extracted ourselves from the
marketplace, and now not only have the better percentage of two full
generations who have never even been to church, but a new generation of
“Christians” who don’t believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of
God, representing Absolute Truth, and our final authority in all maters.  It
is no wonder our nation is in spiritual freefall and this world we live in
grows darker by the day.  Men of God in days gone by didn’t build great
organizations, they built up men and women to serve the Lord.  They only had
one book, the Bible, and one message, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  They
never compromised the Truth of God’s Word and their only goal was to save
souls!

I love you and care about you so much.  While I agree with 90% of what is in
the “Evangelical Manifesto,” the other 10% makes it a document designed to
give more power and prominence to those in the Christian left,  replace
abortion, marriage, and family issues with issues like world hunger, poverty
and disease, and calls for Christians to be more friendly to non-Christians
by not talking about things like sin and hell in the public.  Just in case
you were wondering, they never contacted me about signing this document.
LOL!!!

I have been warning you for years now about this new and growing group who
make up the Christian left who are now fighting with the old guard on the
Christian right for power and to be the voice of Christians.  The Christian
left waters down the Gospel and lays aside the absolutes of the Bible in
order to attract warm bodies and advance their social agenda, while the
Christian right has been turned into little more than a very lucrative
business that generates hundreds of millions annually around various causes
and is more concerned with power and self preservation than getting actual
results.  This leaves Christians alone to deal with the hurts and pains of
every day life with a very thin foundation to their faith, while the vast
majority of people are living without hope and heading to hell when they
die.

However, there is a remnant, a faithful group of Believers who have not sold
out and whose sole goal is to serve the Lord and see God’s Kingdom advanced.
Praise God for those faithful pastors and ministries that only want to see
the work of the Gospel accomplished as they share the Truth of God’s Word
without compromise and labor to bring the lost to faith in Jesus Christ.
These are the last days my friend.  Jesus is coming at any moment.  There is
no time for playing games.  People are dying and heading to hell every
second.  The focus of all Believers in Jesus Christ has to be on bringing
lost souls to faith in our Lord.  We don’t need an “Evangelical Manifesto,”
we already have one and it is called THE BIBLE!!!

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

My Main Concern With Barack HUSSEIN Obama: His Victory Would Make Liberation Theology Seem Rick Warren Purpose Driven!

Posted by Job on April 9, 2008

I have heard about the nightmare scenarios about a Barack Obama presidency: the anti – Christ thing, the Muslim thing, the inexperience thing, the far – left thing, etc. and to tell the truth none of them concern me terribly much. Allowing them to do so would require my dismissing from consideration the things that some of our past presidents – and our current one! – have done, or pretending that I find John McCain or Hillary Clinton in any way more to my liking. On the last point in particular, let me tell you that in their own way, each of them is immensely dangerous to the interests of Christianity!

But speaking of Christianity, do not mistake this as a statement that Barack HUSSEIN Obama is the one most worthy of opposition, for I legitimately feel that such is the case. Still, in Christian terms, there is one aspect of an Obama presidency that I find extremely worrisome: the potential that his presidency would lead to a mainstream acceptance of liberation theology. Perhaps not the radical and separatist version espoused by Jeremiah Wright and James Cone, but definitely a more commercialized, homogenized, domesticated, works – centered (PURPOSE DRIVEN?) version of it.

Now as you may know, liberation theology was given to the world by the Roman Catholic Church after the Second Vatican Council. For a time there was a chance of it becoming very influential to mainstream Catholic and Protestant Christianity, but the doctrine suffered a major setback when the very Roman Catholic Church that birthed it began opposing it in a major way in the 1980s. But were Barack Obama to win the White House, there is the potential that this system could again assert itself.

You see, many may underestimate what electing a black President would mean to America’s black citizens. It is not that blacks feel that Barack Obama would enact a raft of laws and policies favoring blacks. Rather, it would be a major symbolic victory, a sign that America is turning its back on its racist past and ready to accept a fairer future. It would signal that at long last, blacks are fully recognized and accepted as equals – as Americans – by a nation that in every way imaginable denied conceding such. You think this to be foolish? Well consider this: we are less than 25 years removed from blacks being regularly featured on television commercials. That occurrence coincided right about the time of the celebrity of Michael Jordan and the success of “The Cosby Show.” Many companies feared that featuring blacks in their commercials would result in white consumers shunning their products! And yes, it has been less than 15 years since blacks began to regularly play quarterback in the NFL. When asked about the controversy in the early 1990s, NFL head coach Jimmy Johnson stated on Fox Sports that a lot of coaches regarded blacks as not being smart enough to read NFL defenses. This trivia may seem to be just that, but it is evidence of how racism so deeply permeated and tainted everything in American life, even the trivial, and it explains why people that are black like me are capable of getting so worked up over things that appear to be so small! But to so many blacks, the election of Obama would signal that the long nightmare of being second – class citizens is about to end.

This is not to say, of course, that all or even most of these people are obsessed with racial victimization. Quite the contrary, conservative views on race such as those espoused by Bill Cosby are much more popular in the black community than is let on. Many blacks are very much concerned about the cultural problems in the black community: crime, illegitimacy, educational failure, etc. It is just that we are unwilling to discuss them in response to the baiting of conservative racists (who can be of any race) that wield these issues not intending to contribute towards solving them, but rather to use them to justify racism (including but certainly not limited to their own). But in Barack and Michelle Obama, such blacks see hope in that respect as well: Harvard Law School graduates, married, and parents of two daughters. Even Barack Obama’s drug use makes him only a more practical role model in the eyes of those who found the aforementioned Cosby Show “too perfect” and “evading the real problems of the black community”, sort of the ideal anti – hero for our cynical postmodern times. So yes, blacks would look to the Obamas as role models for themselves and the black community, and Barack Obama in particular to serve this role for the very troubled black male.

So were Obama to fulfill these dreams for black America, everything that took Obama to the mountaintop, that got him to that brass ring, that he used to bring to fruition the wildest fantasies of the descendants of slaves, would become absorbed into the shared collective black experience. And a great part of Obama’s everything is, of course, none other than Jeremiah Wright. Jeremiah Wright’s theology, doctrines, sermons, mentoring, etc. (the media is not shy about calling Wright Obama’s “father figure”) will all become a major part of the narrative of how a confused biracial young man went on to become the first black President. And of course, scores of black people will want to apply what worked so well for Barack Obama into their own communities, their own churches, and their own lives.

Let me say two things about this. First, it is the American way! All Americans of all races have been assimilating the traits of successful people, of leaders, into their own being since this country was founded. And yes, the cult of personality has always been very much a factor in American religious life. Second, with respect to the black community in general, there is already precedent. Who is unaware of the huge impact on black religious life that one Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had? Well, as important as Dr. King is to black America, King never became president (a fact that Hillary Clinton, for reasons that made no sense unless she was TRYING to lose the race, taunted supporters of Obama and King with back in January during the very week of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday … let me point out by the way that if Hillary Clinton and the Republicans in nominating McCain – a fellow that most Republicans don’t even LIKE – are giving Obama every possible shot at victory). So then, the effect of Obama on the black religious landscape might even exceed that of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s!

But that is just American blacks, right? Wrong. There has been a provincial, chauvinistic even, tendency among blacks to overstate this, but American blacks are quite often trendsetters. American blacks set trends for blacks in other regions: Africa, Latin America, etc. Now liberation theology is already more of a factor in those regions than in America, so Obama’s election would give the advocates of that belief system in those areas precisely what they need (and that speaks nothing of the Hispanic, Asian, and white adherents of it). And yes, blacks do set trends for whites in America. American whites, in turn, set trends for white people elsewhere in the world. So world, liberation theology brought to you by Barack Hussein Obama. What, Obama is a Muslim? Well, what better belief system for the secular moderate Muslims to buy into? And the secular moderate Hindus? Buddhists? People that are just, well, secular and moderate? And so on …

Again, a key component to remember is that it will NOT be the same liberation theology as advocated by David Cone and Jeremiah Wright. As a matter of fact, not even the black nationalism or Afrocentrism portion of the messages of Cone and Wright will be overly offensive in time. After all, the current image of Martin Luther King, Jr. is nothing like the man with exceptionally radical views and confrontational methods that actually lived. Does anyone remember that Muhammad Ali was once a member of the Nation of Islam? Nope. And even Malcolm X had his black history month commemorative soda cups sold by McDonald’s! The same will be done with liberation theology. It will be packaged and sold like a commercial product just like everything else in America, and when that happens, it may just find a nation – a globe! – of willing consumers in our churches just waiting to devour it. And why not? In their determined zeal to run away from the true Jesus Christ of the Bible, the cross, and the empty tomb, has not Christianity shown itself more than willing to devour everything else? This, people, is no different, and when you consider a great many of the other falsities ingested into popular Christianity over the ages, liberation theology, black or otherwise, is not so radical after all. Is it?

John Hagee Says Barack HUSSEIN Obama IS NOT The Anti – Christ!

Posted by Job on April 8, 2008

I happen to agree with apostate heretic Hagee on this one incidentally. Others that I have discussed this with are considering the source (apostate heretic Hagee) and as a result are even more suspicious of Obama than before.
