Word For It. . .

2Chronicles7:14-”If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Christian Leaders Betray Christ For World Peace

Once again, leaders from the so-called “church growth movement” are demonstrating for us the Hegelian Dialectic – that transformational Marxist process of compromise and consensus made famous by Georg William Friedreich Hegel which seeks to rid the world of its divisive absolutes in the interest of global peace and unity.

Here’s the formula: Thesis + Antithesis = Synthesis

The Christian Post reported the following in a November 23rd article titled, Christian Leaders Invite Muslims to Love God, Neighbors Together:

Christian leaders across denominational lines responded to the unprecedented open letter signed last month by 138 representative Muslim leaders with their own letter, calling on the two Abrahamic faiths to love God and neighbors together.

The key word here is “together.”

To begin with, nowhere in scripture are Christians instructed to unite with other religions and their deities to do anything. Such a plan doesn’t display a love for God at all, but only a disregard for Him and His only begotten Son.

Among other things, the dialectic process redefines “love” to mean tolerance instead of obedience, and calls Christianity and Islam “Abrahamic faiths” as if the two groups have some moral obligation to unite under a god of common ground.

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” – James 4:4

The Bible is uncompromisingly clear on this issue both in 2nd Corinthians 6:14-17, where we are specifically commanded to not yoke ourselves with unbelievers, and again in Ephesians 5:11, where we are instructed to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness.”

Jesus Himself said: “He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.” (Matthew 12:30, Luke 11:23)

How then can Christians join Muslims to love God together and not be an abomination before Him? We’re talking about two entirely different “Gods” here – not the same God with differing names. And that’s the big lie hidden in this global agenda. By swapping love letters with Muslims, these “Christian leaders” endeavor to legitimize the illegitimate by setting aside the whole counsel of God for Results & Relationships.

Jesus Christ is not the Son of Allah; and to even imply that He is by claiming to love the same “God” as Muslims is not only being dangerously deceitful – it’s blasphemy!

But that’s what the Hegelian Dialectic does to the Christian faith – it unites opposites and enemies under a guise of goodness – all at the Lord’s expense; and that is and always has been the modus operandi of the “church growth movement” – to mingle the sheep with the goats until they are indistinguishable.

Christianity (thesis) + Islam (antithesis) = One World Religion (synthesis)

It should come as no surprise to the readers of my column [Paul Proctor] that two of the reported signers of this letter who “share the sentiments” of Muslim leaders are none other than pastors Rick Warren of Purpose Driven Life fame, and the seeker-sensitive Bill Hybels from Willow Creek Community Church.

The CP article went on to say:

“Peaceful relations between Muslims and Christians stand as one of the central challenges of this century, and perhaps of the whole present epoch,” wrote the Christian leaders.

I thought the Great Commission was our central challenge as Christians – to love God and our neighbor by faithfully and obediently proclaiming His Gospel – to preach the cross – to call sinners to repentance and faith for the forgiveness of sins through the shed blood of Jesus Christ!

Have we now abandoned that for an ecumenical Plan B to world peace?

“If we can achieve religious peace between these two religious communities, peace in the world will clearly be easier to attain.”

But Jesus said in Matthew 10:34, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword” which is the Word of God that divides us, not just from the strange fire of other religions, but oftentimes from our own beloved family members.

“For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.” – Matthew 10:35-36

Do Warren and Hybels believe the Bible or not?

You be the judge:

Christian leaders urged for an interfaith dialogue that moves beyond “polite” ecumenical talks between selected leaders. Instead, leaders of both faiths should hold dialogues to build relations that will “reshape” the two communities to “genuinely reflect our common love for God and for one another,” the Christian letter stated.

My, how this bunch loves to re-imagine, re-interpret, re-define, re-envision, re-invent, re-think and re-shape the world to suit them!

“Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.” – Jeremiah 6:16a

You see, they’re not just seeking to shake hands with Muslims on the street, at work or in the grocery store – the objective here is to “hold dialogues to build relations.” That’s the dialectic process I referred to earlier that relieves participants of their divisive absolutes for a compromised collective conscience, resulting in a synthesis of spiritual beliefs that both can embrace together peacefully. (i.e., religious groupthink)

Why do they want to “hold dialogues to build relations?”

To “reshape the two communities” so as to “genuinely reflect our common love for God.”

Which “God” – theirs or ours?

And that’s what this is really all about – systematically merging the two faiths into one through the dialectic process – not merely finding “common ground” or “reflecting” a “common love for God,” but actually creating a common god for the common good.

Who stands to benefit from this?

The coming antichrist, of course.

Kind of gives a whole new meaning to the term “church growth movement,” doesn’t it?

In spite of their seemingly benevolent agenda, Jesus Christ came to offer peace with God – not peace with Allah.

“Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds” – 2nd John 1: 9-11

Site Offering Deal With the Devil

Posted by wordforit on November 14, 2007

battlealreadywon.jpgOf paramount concern to me are our youth and we need to be aware of the evil proliferating in areas too shocking to conceive in a truly moral, Christ-like mind .

The following sites have my head and my heart reeling over the downright pure evil propagandized and sensationalized:

“There’s only one catch: We want your soul’.

That is an exact quote from a website that encourages people (once again, aimed at youth) to renounce their faith in the Holy Spirit on Youtube, or broadcast an already decided unbelief in all things Godly. As stated in other posts on this blog, satan knows the scriptures better than the most studious Christians and that particular sad site quotes Mark 3:28-29~ “I tell you the truth, all sin and blasphemy can be forgiven, 29 but anyone who blasphemes the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. This is a sin with eternal consequences.” (NLT)

Also straight from their page:

“It’s simple. You record a short message damning yourself to Hell, you upload it to YouTube, and then the Rational Response Squad will send you a free The God Who Wasn’t There DVD. It’s that easy.” …

… You may damn yourself to Hell however you would like, but somewhere in your video you must say this phrase: “I deny the Holy Spirit.” Why? Because, according to Mark 3:29 in the Holy Bible, “Whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin”. Jesus will forgive you for just about anything, but he won’t forgive you for denying the existence of the Holy Spirit. Ever. This is a one-way road you’re taking here.

Once you have shot your blasphemous video, just follow these two easy steps: …”

…While anyone can participate in The Blasphemy Challenge, the Rational Response Squad is focused on reaching a young demographic. To publicize The Blasphemy Challenge to young people, today the Rational Response Squad begins an online advertising campaign focused on 25 sites popular with teens such as Xanga, Friendster, Boy Scout Trail, Tiger Beat, Teen Magazine, YM, CosmoGirl! and Seventeen.” …

************************************************

Romans 1:32 “They know God’s justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.” (NLT)

*************************************************

Then, we have the atheist “out” propaganda:

“Atheists have always been at the forefront of rational thinking and beacons of enlightenment, and now you can share your idealism by being part of the OUT Campaign.

…”Add the Scarlet Letter of Atheism to your website…”…

*************************************************

Romans 1: 19-20 They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. 20 Forever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God“. (NLT)

**************************************************

The final “presentation” for this post is the North American Man-Boy Love Association, which has been around a number of years (1978), so may not be news to some. The NAMBLA site is more extensive than the blasphemy and atheist sites; they have been around longer and they need to expound more to justify why it should be legal for young boys to have sexual affairs with grown men. The boys “are old enough to decide for themselves” even though one of the boys featured on the “Boys Speak Out” page is all of eleven:

“The Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me Greg, age 16   

I Love Him, and I Know That He Loves Me  Darrel, age 16  

It Shouldn’t Be a Crime to Make Love  Bryan, age 12 1/2

Boys Help Men, Too  “College Boy”, age 19

I’m Not Going To Be Kept Away from Him (An Interview)  Thijs, age 11″

*****************************************************

1Corinthians 6:9-10Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

******************************************************

Past assertions were that individuals who were abused, or deprived in some way, were the targets but that is not at all the case. When we faithfully attended church as kids, we were made fun of and tempted by all manner of sin, and we came from a loving home. Are we still praying the same prayers of protection over our children today that were lifted up by previous generations?

For those of you who are Christians but have fallen in to the snare of believing homosexuality is acceptable to God, I implore you to read all seven pages regarding that topic in the links in the sidebar. It’s a straight-from-the-scripture message that leaves no doubt about what God’s Word says. We are free agents but if we are to be God’s children, we must do our best to follow His Word.

Malachi 3:6-10  A Call to Repentance  6 “I am the Lord, and I do not change. That is why you descendants of Jacob are not already destroyed. 7 Ever since the days of your ancestors, you have scorned my decrees and failed to obey them. Now return to me, and I will return to you,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. “But you ask, ‘How can we return when we have never gone away?’ 8 “Should people cheat God? Yet you have cheated me!  “But you ask, ‘What do you mean? When did we ever cheat you?’  “You have cheated me of the tithes and offerings due to me. 9 You are under a curse, for your whole nation has been cheating me. 10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!”

God Bless and Keep You Always, In All Ways. Amen.

Contentious Commenters

Posted by wordforit on November 14, 2007

25redicross.jpg Christians blog out of love simply because we want everyone to be in heaven reaping the rewards of faithfulness. We want everyone to understand what it means and how fulfilling it is to take up the Cross and follow Jesus to a worthwhile life. I do not understand why some reject Him and I do not understand why they insist on vilifying us on our sites. The irreligious and unbelievers can forget converting me so, please, spend time in God’s Word rather than finding fault with those who choose to share the joy.

John 5:24~ “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life”.

Visitors have been leaving heated comments regarding my stand against homosexuality and The Golden Compass. Ironically, they have sent others here to “investigate” and I had to close comments and set them to “awaiting moderation” in order to watch out for those who may be hindered by such poison. I am quite sure they would not appreciate me visiting their site to leave contentious remarks.

Romans 10:17~ “So faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.” 

If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that satan promotes human logic and intelligence way above God’s Holiness. I am not averse to expounding on anything I’ve said and I am open to discussion but when someone approaches dialogue with an attitude of “dumbing me down”, beginning with what an idiot I am for believing scripture and how ignorant Christians are, I see nothing except problems that I am not required to babysit.

Matthew 10:14~”And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet“.

I cannot tell you everything that I have experienced and learned over the years; I can only encourage you to seek and support Godliness.

1 Corinthians 15:2~”It is this Good News that saves you if you continue to believe the message I told you-unless, of course, you never believed it in the first place”.

That is not to say that God cannot change any and every heart, but one must be willing and receptive to begin change. It is not my place to debate or beg someone in to believing in Jesus Christ as our Savior, nor is it up to me to coerce or cajole anyone who has access to so much good information, yet they seek darkness. Way before the internet, we had the privilege of owning Bibles and it’s a shock how many do not know what it contains and the marvel of the peace that comes with understanding God’s promises. 

1 Peter 1:23‑25~ “For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For, “All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever”. And this is the word that was preached to you”.

You can find those who will expend time and energy arguing with you, but I am not one. I have prayed for you, and will continue to pray.

Note: One of the inflammatory commentors contends that if we had to follow through with all that’s in 1Corinthians 6:9-10, why not just give up? God is alive and listening. He will forgive if we ask and repent. To repent in this case means not only being remorseful, but changing what we know is sinful behavior or thinking. Pridefulness must be set aside.

1Corinthians 6:9-10~”Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God”.

Please, seek Him before it’s too late!

I love you but, more importantly, God loves You!
