Believing in Creation, and taking a literal position on the Bible is the beginning of persecution, again!Submitted by PatriotsUnderGod on Mon, 03/11/2013 - 10:14
I would say, Dr. Benjamin Carson did indeed start something...timely!
Now, with the recent release of The Bible series on The History Channel; Bill O'Reilly is leading the mocking charge from the right! Oh great; here we go!
Here's MY position/observations at present...Those believers, who were not alarmed when...
1) public opinion was being aroused to be leary or cautious of "religious fundamentalists" after 9/11...
2) they dared not dig a little deeper into the arrest and imprisonment of creationist Kent Hovind, who was simply labeled a tax cheat, irrespective of the known facts that he diligently did his homework regarding how our United States Constitution, and the IRS tax code should/would impact his faithful execution of his creation ministry...
3) former Presidential candidate and former Southern Baptist Pastor Mike Huckabee DENIED the literal six day creation account of the Bible, on a national stage, when Wolf Blitzer asked him directly and specifically if he believed; saying "I don't know, I wasn't there"(denying God & Christ's own eyewitness accounts!)....those believers...they need to WAKE UP NOW...and petition God for discernment!
We are being marginalized, criticized, pressured, and mocked openly now(which often happens, but, Bill O'Reilly has decided he will take it mainstream on the right). Right before darkness truly befalls this nation, just as it has in every other world power THREATENED with so much evidence of hypocrisy, LOVE of MONEY, and the church/state marriage which is a compromise FOR silence of dissent; our light also is about to be put out!
See, what really prompted me to write this is, that Pastor, Dr. Jeffress from First Baptist Church of Dallas was not only on O'Reilly's show last week( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvMLcBGSvo0 )to be a punching bag for Bible-deniers but, for some reason he decided to join the growing faction of celebrity pastors who won't defend a young Earth position( listen here:
The question is, will we remain silent?
Every last celebrity conservative Christian in America has been naming and claiming 2 Chronicles 7:14 for the past dozen years or so...but LOOK at what we've ended up with for political leadership! Does that mean God is NOT listening, no; I think we are still giving him lip service!(EXAMPLE: the May Day 2010 event at the Lincoln Memorial - listen to Pastor Ralph Ovadahl expose this fraud for what it was, beginning at the 32:00 of this broadcast - http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=57102226413 )
Fellow believers, those whose eyes find these words; let me forewarn you...God's enemies, Satan's counterfeits, the truly un-regenerated souls today who are professing a salvation they actually DO NOT possess; they look and speak more like you and I everyday...
Learn to discern; ask for strength, boldness, and courage in these days where compromise reigns and sin abounds...they want to shut us up...I am just one believer who has been quite alarmed since 9/11; I have been watching and pleading and standing tall in the face of so much deceit and sissy-britches mega-church ecumenism that has become intolerant of God's PLAIN truths that any elementary school child can understand(and was taught normally in public conversations, Sunday School, not mocked in our public schools up until about one generation ago!)
My exhortation to ALL, is to get discernment by using your senses and Holy Spirit led life experience to simply distrust, and VOICE that distrust of both political and clergy "leadership", those in this culture who get the MOST media facetime because they compromise the fundamentals of the faith ONCE delivered to the saints, those in society who occupy places of great influence, who clearly are nothing like the martyrs of our faith recorded in history; those who clearly are not sacrificing creature comforts derived from a bankrupted and immoral debt-based monetary system on the brink of collapse!
The latter half of Hebrews 5:14 suggests this is why we love strong teaching "... those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil." ... But beyond this ... Do as Romans 16:17-18 instruct, let's have a Matthew 23 exposure of the Christian charlatans who join the Fox News Channel and K-street pro-family groups in Washington that serve money; now casting DOUBT upon the truth of God's Word, especially as it relates to His account of the two great cataclysmic events we know as The Creation and The Flood of Noah's day!
Those verses of Romans 16 instruct; "17) Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18) For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple."
They sought to ensnare the simple, they prey upon our children in public schools..."instructing them in the way they should go, so that when they are old,"; they want this social order to DENY a Creator higher than Caesar...it's all "yea hath God said?"...and "ye shall be as gods"...same old trick from the garden.
I have ALWAYS said, I am NOT in favor of a Christian theocratic state; I have personally come out of that...but...the obvious mockery of the Godly, and their core beliefs as they TRUST in God's Word with respect to moral absolutes, natural laws, and the creation and the flood; this we MUST no longer remain silent about, nor hide from the public and start re-writing Christian apologetics while we are steamrolled by Zionist Sadducees, Scribes, and Pharisees!
C'mon folks; the PTB 501c3'd the churches because the KNEW their most ardent criticisms would originate and grow from within them!
Atheists and agnostics can AGREE with Bible-thumpers on this one point, can't they?
