After the killing of hundreds of Christians and burned churches, to quell the violence he is said to have incited, he was given a place in government affairs. Campaign funds according to Kah, were given to him by Friends of Senator B.O.(see this World Net Daily article from 2008.)
Again, in defense of my stand for biblical principles, I am neither judging, condemning, nor disrespecting the man in the highest office of our land. I am conveying facts. As a believer and one who knows the right thing to do, it is my duty to do it. Men of great courage are laying their reputations on the line to warn and inform the American people. I choose to stand with them.
The statement made this week by President Obama that he is agreeable to homosexual marriages has caused a stir around the country. There are those who say he was forced to come out with his true feelings due to a recent interview with Vice President Joe Biden on NBC’s “Meet the Press” when he said he was “fully comfortable” with homosexual marriage.
I don’t think this situation is all that it appears to be. As believers in the 21st century, we must learn to read through the lines, to not trust everything we hear and to dig deeper. If we do not do our homework we will be swayed by every whim.
I see this as a calculated move to deepen the chasm between bible believing evangelical Christians and those who have agreed to everything but the sale of their souls to get along with the culture, the emerging church and the post-modern philosophy.
For what purpose would a move like this come into being? Could it be a part of an agenda, albeit, a veiled and deceitful one? More and more believers who stand on the Word of Truth are being labeled as unloving and haters. We cannot say publically that we feel homosexuality is a sin without being inundated with accusations that we do not know how to love. If we explain why, we are seen as hateful and politically incorrect.
Could it be that the presidents move on the issue is not just about votes, though he will get some for this effort; but it is more about Hegelian Dialectic; moving people groups into separated territories to later demolish those who are most resistant?
In the early days of the 3rd Reich, Hitler charmed the people. He also charmed the churches who could not wait to get behind him for a better Germany. No one bothered to understand where this man was coming from, and when they did- they were disbelieved or quickly quieted.
I am not asserting that this situation is exactly the same. What I am inferring is that this administration works like clockwork on its agenda. There are no surprises here. I see a possible purpose; to further divide the believing so that one day, the true church will be easily persecuted and driven underground. I don’t think it is in the distant future either. Could it be possible?
As in the early days of genocides all over the world, people groups are singled out by their governments as generally “uncooperative,” or different, so that inferences can publically be made, that they are harming the purpose of the leaders, who of course, have only the good of the people in mind. This continues until laws are passed outlawing these groups and finally, genocide becomes the solution, for the good of the masses. (See Daniel Goldhagen’s “Genocide, Worse Than War.” )
Bible believers who take God at his word are not a popular group these days. The rhetoric that we are closed-minded is coming from sources even in the free- thinking emergent church. We cramp their style by pointing out passages that need to be interpreted with the whole counsel of God, not singled out for a purpose more fitting for an agenda.
Hence, I believe we could be seeing the beginning of sanctioned persecution from our government. As days months and possibly years pass, anyone holding to the truth of Gods word will be considered resistant to what the government and (government churches) deem appropriate.
In the book, “Hitler’s Cross,” (everyone should read it) Erwin W. Lutzer poignantly bring this message.
“The date July 23, 1933. The young theologian was Dietrich Bonheoffer. In January of the same year, Hitler had been installed as chancellor of Germany. The very next day, this young man, who was not duped by Der Fuhrer’s intentions, gave a radio address in which he warned that when a people idolize a leader “the image of the leader will gradually become the image of the “misleader.” Thus the leader makes an idol of himself and mocks G-d. Before these last sentences were broadcast, Bonheoffer’s microphone was mysteriously switched off. “ ~Hitler’s Cross by Irwin Lutzer.
In light of Executive orders being penned and signed faster than an author puts his autograph on a book leaf at a book signing; Lutzer’s words are beginning to make sense.
On page 117 he writes: “With his place as a dictator assured, Hitler could make whatever laws he wished and mocked his seemingly powerless opposition. He had always regarded Protestants with contempt, saying of them, “You can do anything you want with them…They will submit… they are insignificant little people, submissive as dogs, and they sweat with embarrassment when you talk to them.” (emphasis added) ~Hitlers Cross by Erwin W. Lutzer
The new cultural playbooks are not hard to find if you dare read them. It is not the bible that drives government in this country anymore. Man’s wisdom, which is foolishness to God, has taken over every aspect of our lives.
I don’t think there is coincidence to this revelation by the president that he favors homosexual marriages. On the contrary, I think it could be part of a well-organized plan to demoralize our culture and begin the process of persecution against those who disagree with a supreme leader. You decide, but do your own homework first.
President Obama announced today his support for homosexual marriage, contradicting his previous position on the issue. Is it possible his camp is beginning it’s desperate grab for any vote they can find?
Thanks to the American Psychiatric Association, homosexuality which used to be diagnosed as a mental disorder was deemed a lifestyle in the 1970’s.
In the early 1970s, activists campaigned against the DSM classification of homosexuality as a mental disorder, protesting at APA offices and at annual meetings from 1970 to 1973. In 1973 the Board of Trustees voted to remove homosexuality as a disorder category from the DSM, a decision ratified by a majority (58%) of the general APA membership the following year. A category of “sexual orientation disturbance” was introduced in its place in 1974, and then replaced in the 1980 DSM-III with Ego-dystonic sexual orientation. That was removed in 1987. ~Wikipedia
See the presidents comments on this ABC News website.
The announcement completes a turnabout for the president, who has opposed gay marriage throughout his career in national politics. In 1996, as a state Senate candidate, he indicated support for gay marriage in a questionnaire, but Obama aides later disavowed it and said it did not reflect the candidate’s position. ~ABC NEWS
His statement regarding how he came to this decision is telling. He did not use the Bible, from which believing Christians live, but rather from talking to family and friends.
Obama said, “I have hesitated on gay marriage in part because I thought that civil unions would be sufficient.” He added that he “was sensitive to the fact that for a lot of people the word ‘marriage’ was something that invokes very powerful traditions, religious beliefs and so forth.”
Now, he said, “it is important for me personally to go ahead and affirm that same-sex couples should be able to get married.”
Emma was a young Cuban woman living in America. While with her parents on a family trip back to Cuba, her life took an unusual twist. Not being allowed back out of the country in the 60’s, her family fortune was taken from them and she was conscripted into Castro’s militia; where at one point, she met Che Guevara. Her message is about socialism, and how it begins, and ends with communism. She has a warning for all Americans. and American women.
Some of the courageous students you will see in the following video had the conviction to walk out at a national High School Journalism Conference when the speaker, Dan Savage; a homosexual, stood touting his sexual persuasion while quite offensively taking biblical principles out of context to insult the believing students who attended.
When will believing parents stop submitting to the public school system when they blatantly are working to destroy the faith of our children? We can turn the other cheek if we chose, but do we allow our children to go into the battle because we are cowards? Do we prop them up with Sunday School, scripture, prayer then send them into the lions den to be shredded for the sake of Christ, while we tend to our daily lives?
What kind of outcry would come from Muslim parents should their progeny be insulted for what they believed from the Koran? What kind of fear would be induced into free speech when threats of violence would be made? Cowards. We have become cowards for the sake of Christ, hardly ambassadors. What do we do now?
Those who oppose biblical standards have no fear of public opinion… do we?
Savage was supposed to be delivering a speech about anti-bullying at the National High School Journalism Conference sponsored by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association. But it turned into an episode of Christian-bashing. ~Todd Starnes, FoxNews Radio
WARNING: The video you are about to watch has several crass and offensive words, not to mention the message.
It is exciting to be able to look into the heavens and imagine our Savior snatching us up in an instant at the sound of the trump. It is exciting to realize the time is so near, some of us may taste the sweetness of the milisecond of time when we are lifted from this earth to be with the Lord.
I can’t think of more exciting time in all of human history to be alive. Some of us may not see death before we see the face of the Lord. As more and more executive orders and religious ecumenicism permeates our world, coupled with world economic changes; we who believe can rejoice that God is faithful to His word and has given us a road map to explore, regarding his timeline for humanity.
Most fascinating, is that our sovereign Lord can use the foolish plans of man to affect His purpose. The following article is one more step toward heaven for those of us who believe. To others, it is one more step to a very dim and treacherous future. Maranatha! Even so Lord Jesus, come quickly!
