The Calls for War with Iran Increasing

More disgusting right wing rhetoric below:

Allen West to UN: 'The Angel of Death in the Form of an American Bald Eagle Will Visit You and Wreak Havoc'

By the way Allen West has been a speaker at a CNP conference with this reprint of one of his speeches.

I saw some "Christians" quite gleefully posting this "Angel of Death" Allen West quote, yesterday, and I wrote them and said, "Remember Luke 9?" I seriously feel nauseous watching so many Christians praising the American eagle wreaking havoc on enemies rather then reading their Bibles. Here one sees the blasphemous connection of America supposedly as God's messenger in this case or better said "avenger"..

A person can almost tell who is immediately brainwashed by the likes of Fox news and the religious right. Even thinking of the religious connotations here, those definitely are skewed. Maybe it's me but I do not get people who go "Yeah rah rah more war!" They seem ignorant of the war, destruction and horrors that war brings. If it is WWIII, the death and suffering will beyond the scope even of our imaginations.

Now what kind of insanity has people cheer for that? Even if you were bombarded with years worth of Fox news, fearful of a terrorist around every corner, what is biblical about being a war lover?

Jesus Christ Himself tells us

Mat 24:22    And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

  The insanity of those who desire war with Iran knows no bounds, even if this was not to turn into a nuclear exchange, think of how decimated the American economy already is, Iran is a far larger country then Afghanistan or Iraq, our economy is already in the hole, our soldiers have already been on multiple deployments.   While there are Islamic Jihadists, Americans are ignorant about Iran, while they are far from perfect and definitely under the bondage of Islam, it is one of the more modern Middle Eastern countries, also they have a large population of Jews there as well. The world has been made far more dangerous via all these endless wars.

I found these articles interesting as well, where they show pictures of Iranian people and a landscape that far more varied then Americans would even realize. People who imagine every Iranian person as a jihadist with bombs strapped to their waist living in a desert in a tent have got it wrong.

Well Ahmadinejad called for a new world order while at the UN yesterday. Here is the transcript of his speech. As you will see, Ahmadinejad is a globalist as well, though he has different opinions about the USA, is a rabid anti-semite, and desires restructuring of the United Nations.
"3-Pave the ground for the joint global management by insisting upon justice in all its aspects, strengthen unity, friendship and expand economic, social, cultural and political interactions in independent and specialized organizations.

4-Care about the interests of all the people of the world and join hands to reform the current structures of the UN with our joint efforts and coordination. It is necessary to note that the UN belongs to nations. Thus, the existence of discrimination amongst the members is a great insult to all. The existence of discrimination and monopoly in the UN is in no way acceptable.

5-Have more coordinated efforts to generate and propagate and firmly establish the language needed for designing the required structures of the joint global management filled with justice, love and freedom. Participation in global management is the basis of lasting peace.

The Non-Aligned Movement as the second largest trans-regional group after the UN, held its 16th summit in Tehran with the motto of "Joint Global Management", cognizant of the importance of this issue and the shortcomings of the current mismanagement in the emergence of crises and problems afflicting the world today. During the Summit, participating Heads of State and representatives of more than 120 countries underscored the necessity of a more serious and effective participation of all nations in the global management


Read here too Iran's Ahmadinejad calls for new world order

This guy has a globalist view of the world, and frankly how far is he from the first George Bush who called for a new world order at the United Nations in 1991? Ever notice how popular that seems to be among all these world leaders?

Then yesterday we have Netanyahu showing up at the UN drawing his red line for war. Netanyahu seems to be warmonger of the highest degree. If he cared about his people, he would not want the Middle East turned into a giant fire ball.

Israeli, Iranian media see in Netanyahu speech warning of war

Remember when they had the USA go to war with Iraq over weapons of mass destruction which turned out never to have turned up. Do you all remember that? This is the same thing all over again with fear being used to beat the war drums incessantly.   I understand Israel defending itself, every nation has that right, and Ahmadinejad is a loose cannon who seems to be playing a role set out for him, but with all the craziness you look even deeper and wonder what else is up?

I get the feeling that there are Israelis who wonder about what their government is doing, same as here.

Did you know that they have claimed for 30 years that Iran may have the bomb? I was surprised to learn this was not something that was new.

Did you know in all the books about "integrating the gap" think "Plan for A New American Century", that Iran is listed as a future "target" over and over? Here in the book, The Pentagon's New Map, it says "then Iran must become the main focus of our pressure for change". We know that George W Bush, constantly pointed to Iran as a future "rogue" nation to be handled including Iran in his "axis of evil". I tend to think war with Iran was planned long ago. There is evidence out there for that.

This is scary but have any of you read what Russia and China said will be their response if an attack on Iran is made?

The workers for evil in this world want their "new world order" and desire more war to make it happen.

"See You At The Pole"

'See You at the Pole:' Millions of Students Pray for Spiritual Awakening

Weird how the language of these things gets more and more new age and pagan. "Spiritual Awakening?" I hate even the name of the event "See you at the Pole", why does everyone have to gather outside in a circle around a flagpole? That is what they have the young people do at these things.

Remember what the Bible says about poles/"pillars"?

Now I am not claiming that flagpoles are all "pillars of jealousy" but hey, they chose that meeting place for a reason. This rests in the tradition of using poles, such as the May Pole as a "phallic symbol for fertility". With the flag involved they can toss in that taint of patriotic Dominionism as well. 

Also notice this is a GLOBAL event.

"Millions of students across the country and globally are participating in a "See You at the Pole" event at their schools today, praying for a spiritual awakening, the theme chosen for the 22nd annual prayer rally.
"If two or more people join together and pray for something, that can move mountains and I love that," Illinois high school student Lasha Lobo told The Christian Post on Tuesday. "I love that I can go to school without feeling like I'm drowning in the sea of high school."
See You at the Pole, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. More than two decades later, millions around the world pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September.
Organizers say SYATP is simply a prayer rally where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. SYATP is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event."

Whatever happened to following Jesus's commandment here?

Matt 6:5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 

The Clinton Global Intiative

"NEW YORK — The Clinton Global Initiative, or CGI, wrapped up its annual meeting in New York with a focus on food security. The three-day event garnered millions of dollars to help address problems of global poverty and disease.

The explosive growth of the world’s population figured in several CGI discussions over the past three days. Judith Rodin, president of the Rockefeller Foundation, underscored the ramifications for food security.

"Given that population is expected to increase by two billion more people, we will need two-and-a-half times the amount of food produced in the next 90 years than in the prior 8,000 years," she said."

Meeting humanity’s growing needs will require more efficient food production. Jason Clay, senior vice president of the World Wildlife Fund, said people everywhere waste about one of every three food calories.

"That has impact on water, greenhouse gas emission and soil erosion and all kinds of things. It’s a compounding factor," he said.

Globalism, well we know both right and left are joined together on that program and BOTH Obama and Romney spoke at this event:

Interesting point on the Clinton video, he calls Obama a walking NGO. Hmm given that Obama is implementing so many United Nations programs, and destroying our freedoms, makes sense to me!

Why is it so hard to convince people they all play for the same team?

A Variety of Links #17 and More

Blog business: if you see more errors, please excuse me for them ahead of time. Google changed the blogger interface, and I am just figuring it out. One thing I have noticed is they always make things more complex instead of simplifying things.  I can't imagine someone new to blogging even figuring this out. I had switched back the blog to the old interface multiple times, but now supposedly it has been erased.

Please pray for help in my computer know-how! :)
Note: We kind of already knew this but the famous atheists are part of the "network" as well. Why would a guy who denies the existence of the supernatural world mark himself with a symbol that says otherwise? Think about that one for a minute. From the Spanish speaking website called Putas Paranoias [paranoid harlots?] [not an endorsement] It says in the first sentence: "In this picture [picture cite] Richard Dawkins in a picture from the same year believes that the science education young people receive is a tragedy."

I know for a fact from reading some of the "freethought" literature, it was marked all over during my UU days. Look at the evil messages on the bus, more to deceive the masses.

Psa 53:1    [[To the chief Musician upon Mahalath, Maschil, [A Psalm] of David.]] The fool hath said in his heart, [There is] no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: [there is] none that doeth good.


Al Mohler Declares: Church Members Don't Have a Right to Leave Their Church, Except for "Theological" Errors

picture cite

Well enough of us will leave over theological errors, these pastors always say 'Stay in the churches", hey they have to keep their gravy train rolling after all.....

 "Al Mohler has declared from his lofty perch at SBTS that church members do not have the "right" to leave their church, unless it is for a primary doctrinal reason.
 Apparently we aren't smart enough to know when it is in the best interests of our family to leave and join another church. No, we need Albert the Pious and the other seminary-trained holy-men-of-God to tell us when we can leave, and when we can't leave. After all, as Albert said last year, pastors are "God-appointed agents to save God's people from ignorance."
 Says Albert:
"When members leave for insufficient reason, the fellowship of the church is broken, its witness is weakened, and the peace and unity of the congregation are sacrificed...we have no right to leave a church over preferences about music, personal taste, or even programming that does not meet expectations..."

I wrote about Albert Mohler here: Albert Mohler: Well-Known SBC Leader and Rome

Jhn 2:16    And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

They keep working on collapsing the global economy:

QE3: Helicopter Ben Bernanke Unleashes An All-Out Attack On The U.S. Dollar

How QE3 Will Make The Wealthy Even Wealthier While Causing Living Standards To Fall For The Rest Of Us 

Rev 6:6    And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and [see] thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

Seriously What Was Wrong with Al Roker? They showed this on different news shows so this wasn't altered from what I know...Can a normal person go that long without

I found out about this online avoiding mainstream news shows but looks they are letting more of the weirdness overtly out of the bag. I almost didn't post this one, because it's so creepy, but want to warn people, BE CAREFUL  of all shows out there even ones you think are innocuous, they aren't just sneaking in false news but other weird stuff, beyond the NLP even talked about the other day.  Some people said that it was a badly timed joke or maybe he had a partial seizure, all I know is it was really really weird.

Matthew 12:22

22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.

Now they are claiming "jesus" had a wife.  The parade of lies never stops. Ever notice all this stuff comes out from the fourth century, the peak of the Alexandrian school? This was also the peak time for other Gnostic false writings and "gospels".
"A Harvard University professor on Tuesday unveiled a fourth-century fragment of papyrus she said is the only existing ancient text quoting Jesus explicitly referring to having a wife. Karen King, an expert in the history of Christianity, said the text contains a dialogue in which Jesus refers to "my wife," whom he identifies as Mary. King says the fragment of Coptic script is a copy of a gospel, probably written in Greek in the second century."

Notice something about Karen King here...

This verse applies to the Gnostics: [the modern ones are still out there, and Gnosticism undergirds quite a bit including the modern New Age movement]

Mark 4:11

11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:

12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.


Rick Perry [prior presidential candidate] keeps stumping for THEOCRACY Actually it's Satan who offers the kingdoms of this world.

The Christian Fascists are Growing Stronger. Sadly the nonbelievers and secularists do not see the whole picture, with even Augustine quoted and other deceits, but obviously got a few things right. They are right about the contradictions and love for war. This is the false witness turning off so many.  That Joel's Army logo is pretty awful, I posted it as an example with it's occult "X" included:
There are wild contradictions within this belief system. Personal independence is celebrated alongside an abject subservience to leaders who claim to speak for God. The movement says it defends the sanctity of life and advocates the death penalty, militarism, war and righteous genocide. It speaks of love and promotes fear of damnation and hate. There is a terrifying cognitive dissonance in every word they utter.

Obama's new evil looking flag, many online [not an endorsement of this link] are saying the red smears look like the finger smears left by victims at the embassy.


URI [United Religions Initiative] promotes a new program for global citizenship. I have the feeling we will be seeing the phrase GLOBAL CITIZEN knocking around a bit more...looks like they are selling this even using SELF-LOVE to do so..."Global ME"......

Revelation 13:7 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
Baptists Embrace Contemplative Prayer, we knew this was coming, and it has only grown out there.

"Silent Worship Not Just For Catholics"

They already were pushing this in the mainline churches and well the Emergents brought it into the evangelical churches.
"Pastors, scholars and retreat center directors around the nation report a growing demand for services, programs and studies of contemplative prayer and worship.
The term ‘contemplative’ generally denotes worship, prayer and reading that lead participants into silent, meditative forms of engaging with God. 
Where experts are seeing increasing interest in those forms, which include Taize and Lectio Divina, are among traditions seldom associated with the silent prayer, candle lighting and chanting that characterize much of the contemplative movement."

Did I ever write about participating in Taize while still in the Catholic church? Oh, I hated it, and I wasn't even born again yet, they do the "empty" your mind stuff the eastern religions do, and even during the singing segment would have you sing, the same 1 sentence long word phrases over and over. The women's group at the Catholic church I was last in had a Taize sessions before Bible study, and I ended up sitting them out they were so awful. I remember warning saying, "This is just like the meditation they had us do in the UU!". Not being saved yet, I couldn't get into the full reasons why they should depart from it.


Even as the world goes more crazy, a verse to pray on and praise God for:

Isaiah 40:8

King James Version (KJV)

8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

Video Exposes NLP in Our Media

The discussion above is from a professor who sought to expose 9-11 as an inside job many years ago, who is being shut down by newscasters using manipulative and NLP techniques.

I stopped watching mainstream news YEARS ago, around the time of 9-11 when I started to wake up as to what was going on, I knew the repeated phrases, repeated words and subtle subliminals I was picking up on were only harmful. I may watch on rare occasion to see what lies they are telling for big events, but otherwise, I have cut mainstream news out of my life. I have not watched a nightly ABC, CBS, or NBC newscast in over 10 years. NLP is used throughout the ENTIRE media and not just on Fox news but the liberal ones too and even in the alternative media. The techniques used as these higher levels match even the ones used on message boards and alternative media online as well. This Christian commenter is dead on when they write:
"This video is brilliant and dead-on. NLP is a scourge, not just on Fox News but in most media, classrooms and churches across the country. Everybody manipulates everybody ... I only wish that more people were aware of this."

Regarding my article of yesterday, "The Decline of Love and Conscience" manipulation on multiple levels has become the name of the game in an overwhelmingly wicked society.

Obama Defends the NDAA

The Obama Administration Says It's Unconstitutional To Strike Down The NDAA

Notice the double-talk here? The NDAA itself is unconstitutional which is why one judge is standing against it. Pray for that judge! Remember Romney supports the NDAA as well.

"The Obama administration had some harsh words Friday after a federal judge appointed by Obama appointee said the government doesn't have a right to indefinitely detain anyone even remotely associated with terrorist groups.

Judge Katherine B. Forrest permanently blocked the government from enforcing the National Defense Authorization Act, claiming it was too vague and would have a "chilling effect" on free speech.

And now the Department of Justice is calling Forrest's ruling "unprecedented," arguing that the government has long had the authority to detain anyone it deems a threat to the county, The Wall Street Journal's Law Blog reported Friday.

Forrest's ruling oversteps the court's authority and infringes on Obama's power to act as Commander in Chief, according to the government's court filings.

The Justice Department requested a stay of the ruling pending appeal, which Forrest denied Friday.

Carl Mayer, an attorney for the plaintiffs in the case has hailed the decision as a "huge and historic victory for democracy," saying he believes any challenges from the Obama administration will be shot down, RT reported over the weekend."

The Values Voter Summit 2012

Here is one of the latest religious right events, The Values Voter Summit. I posted on the one in 2011 too.

You'll notice the line up at this one was interesting. I'll list some names, Michele Bachmann, Gary Bauer, Gen. William Boykin, Kirk Cameron, Oliver North, Tony Perkins, Rand Paul, as long as a slew of other religious right politicians and religious leaders. Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan was there as well. I don't trust Rachel Maddow since she is mainstream news [ignore all the mention of "conspiracy theories", they really only mean the deceptions from the right]but notice the names that come up.

2:53 Jerry Boykin, Kamal Saleem and Frank Gaffney.
Knights of Malta Rick Santorum manages to insult his constituents who clap for him anyway
"We will never have the elite, smart people on our side."

And of course one hears the usual Dominionist drumbeats from Catholic Santorum
"without the church and the family there is no conservative movement, there is no basic values in America enforced, and there is no future for our country."
"Church and family" are like Pavlovian dog phrases to the religious right. As for the "elite" talk, the elite conservatives like to pretend to join themselves to the common people via a supposed anti-intellectual strain, even though their educational and business ties exactly match those of the liberals they decry. How many of these folks went to Jesuit universities? How many on BOTH sides of the aisle earn their Jesuit university based awards? GU stands for Georgetown University in the title for this picture below.
Some of the strangest stuff came from Kirk Cameron who in his speech, managed to praise another idolatrous monument.
Cameron said during his research he was hoping that the Founding Fathers had enough foresight to know that the nation might get off track, and they had put a "guard rail" for us. "I looked for it... and found it. They left it for us." "They left it in the form of the largest granite monument in the United States of America, but most people have never heard of it. I had never heard of it," he said. "It sits on the top of a hill in Massachusetts. It is 180 tons of granite... and it lays down our forefathers' strategies for how to build and sustain a free and just society. It's called the Monumental Forefathers." Cameron then described the monument, located on Allerton Street in Plymouth, Mass. "She is 81 feet tall; her name is Faith. She stands tall with her fingers pointing to heaven, the God of heaven, with a star on her forehead representing wisdom. And in her left hand she holds the Word of God. It is specifically the Geneva Bible, which is the Bible the Pilgrims brought across with them on the Mayflower..."
Here is a picture of the statue he is talking about, another Greco-Roman "goddess" on display for the masses.

This Voter's Summit was the usual deceiving religious right messages from top to bottom. The stumping for war, the false history and more.

The Decline In Love and Conscience

When you have a relationship with God, God does show you what true love, friendship and other things are really about. In a way part of the Christian realizing this world is not our home, is comparing this place to the love we have received from God. If you have been blessed with good Christian fellowship in this world too, it is like a cool breeze across the face, of gentleness and kindness.

 1Jo 4:16    And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

This may be hard hitting one but one, I've been pondering for some time. I see love ebbing away in a society and yes we were warned of this coming.

2 Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

To me the best way I can explain things is things are freezing over. In my own life, I have faced times of little love, most humans face this at various times in our lives especially in today's world, many of us have turned to God in our own yearning and in need of  a Savior out of our own brokenness. We turn to God and truly He becomes for us ABBA Father. [Romans 8:15]

For those out there without a family or who struggle with being alone, God has promises for you too. [Don't let the Dominionists who are turning their own family into idols steer you wrong]. I often think about those who are lonely or homeless, or in the world alone and how a disfavor is being done, by this picture of "Christianity" only for the "Quiverful", "Dominionist oriented" huge family types. It's like those who do not fit that picture are disenfranchised from the start. I never like to see churches that are totally family based, the focus being on the family of God, or church "family" is what a church SHOULD be doing. [Mark 3:31-35]

Psalm 68:6

King James Version (KJV)

6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

There are good and kind people out there, but one can see the growing hardness in American society. It concerns me. This may be my age talking but even remembering how things were 20-30 years ago, things were not so heavy, not so "dark", not so "dog eat dog".

2 Timothy 1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was

If you are old enough or young and due to God now separate from it all, you have felt the tearing at your heart strings, watching how things have changed. It is a feeling that is even hard to describe, as the march of time goes on, and you think back and compare and believe, even the thinking inside of so many has changed. Some may say nostalgia is a poison of its own, but I think some of it is based on reality, when looking back, comparing and remembering. Of course that feeling can be tied to knowing we are NOT "home" yet, and our built in desire for heaven.

I realize as I talk about this stuff, with people I know in real life, some of the Christians get it, the others seem to think I am some fuddy-duddy "throw back" who wishes it was 1850. No life wasn't perfect back then even, even if Vision Forum would have us believe the world was perfect during the Victorian era, but I have seen changes in my own lifetime that are pretty drastic.

Many are hurting and sincere people out there, but then too we have ones who have bought totally into the system, where life is all about the hamster wheels and the competitive games they have been lured into. One thing I have commented on to people I know, is questioning why and how things have speeded up and the influence of all the technology. Things are growing more subtle and even more encompassing. You know life has gotten strange when you realize even old work conferences brought in the Delphi techniques and New Age brainwashing, or even today recognizing the abuses of language and the insistence on the political correct code. There is very little that is not being affected. When you are sitting a work meeting or another type of conference, and they break out the DISC personality test, which promotes cohesion to the group, there is a reason for it. They don't like it when you say "I do not fit that system, I think for myself". The person doing it probably is fooled themselves and well-intentioned but this stuff is filtering down from the top.

We live in a society where people are literally drugged, and suppressed, into a stupefied state. God given emotions while we are to have biblical self-control, today people are instructed to have as few as possible. It seems even those who dare to look around at what is going on are very few in number. It is all a very painful enterprise.

This is one way Satan keeps people from even desiring the truth. Many follow the keep your head down formula in hope they will be left alone. They do not question, think or ponder the deeper things of life. How many people do you know like that?

[photo cite]

A couple months ago, I felt led to read a popular book called "The Hunger Games". This was not for enjoyment but for exposure purposes. I did not have the opportunity to go see the movie and definitely decided against it. I wanted to see what everyone was so excited about, I knew this was a book, that was meant for the "young adult" crowd but has moved into best-seller status nation-wide especially with the release of the movie. I have to admit the book made me sick and I considered doing a post just based on it and changed my mind.

Even now, I shudder thinking about how this book will be used to impact consciences and more of young people. Situational ethics paired with the hard core survive or else messages were advanced. Massive desensitization to violence coupled with endless blind obedience to authority despite the few "rebellions" made for a very dark picture. I kept asking myself "What made this book so popular?" The book was so violent, I do not know why any parent would let any teen read it, but then we live in a culture deep into all that now. The book was also very depressing. It is scary to me it was seen as even a "fun" book to read it was so horrible.  After I read it, I thought, "Lord help the young people!".

While some said the author was warning about the dystopian society to come, and making a stand against it, just the fact a book where human life considered so worthless was sickening. I really did not see a book as a stand against the NWO but just more double messages. While the heroine has a few thoughts of her own the fact remains she becomes a willing murderer for the state and to save her "own life".  I don't want to get into details of the plot but it is almost like the Romans throwing slaves to the lions but modern style, young people are chosen and told one will remain standing as they fight to the death. While in the book the heroine and hero "rebelled" to a degree against the "state", none questioned the system as a whole, in other words, they did follow the rules of the game, in killing or be killed. Later two would even join the "oppositional" force which turned out not to be much different since later on in the last book, that group wants to hold their own Hunger Games. The book if anything advances utter hopelessness in the face of the unyielding powerful state. The ending in this case is a happier one but does not make up for the other messages pushed. Their lives were miserable on both ends.

I am noticing horrible messages in general in fiction. While the teens heads are being filled with violent video games, vampires and worse, the adults aren't getting much better. One sickening series that is popular now, the "grey" series is even pornographic in nature. Obviously I refuse to read them but have seen and heard the descriptions. I tend to be a non-fiction reader, more value neutral if one screens through the false science such as global warming and other influences, and I am planning to do a post about even the regular reading world soon, but hope, charity, and love are NOT things being promoted out there very much anymore. Why did Hitchens "Mortality" reach the recent best seller list and not a Christian book? Why did someone feel the need to turn Abraham Lincoln into a vampire for adult fiction?  That tells you the priorities right there. The picture above is of the May 2012 fictional best-sellers, what a vacuous display promoting adultery, war, fornication and worse. I read very old books sometimes even to get NICE stories, that are not offensive. Remember Ideal magazine? That is a very old now defunct magazine where they would post poems of encouragement and about courage and even the occasional prayer. Yes times have changed.

The culture warriors are right about the moral values of society declining, we know that has been a steady pattern for years, abortion, fornication, and other sins are getting worse out there. While their solutions are evil, thinking that gov't control will make everyone be good, they are correct about the decline and how rapid it has become  but then while they call out the sins of others, they are blind to the multitudes of their own sin, oddly an extra focus on self-reliance married to extreme helicopter parenting and sheltering for their young people, and speaking of freedom and supporting everything against that freedom. They don't worship the God of the Bible but one of their own making. One can see this even in their symbols they use. What part of the statue of liberty representing the goddess did they not get? They are so innured in false jingoism and American political mythmaking, they can't even remember half the commandments in the Bible.

This ties into our society rapidly becoming a police state, when everyone is in the control everyone mode. Think about those who believe that passing more laws will fix everything. This too is what the Dominionists remain attached to and why they love the police state so much. Laws will not make up for the wicked things men decide to do. You can't legislate morality. Now some well meaning usually more liberal leaning secularists, will say things like "Teach the kids ethics, or to be kind or lets have some anti-bullying seminars" but without God and conviction in individuals, those things will not solve what is basically a soul problem.

Now I am going to ask a few questions...

Do you remember when movies and books had happy endings? Those days seem far off don't they? If you see any old movies, one can tell the difference. Sure there were evil movies in the old days like the Wizard of Oz and Mildred Pierce but there was also ones that were more uplifting. While the NWO started their game even early on, at least movies and shows had some morals to convey and some ideals to uphold. Happy endings while maybe not always realistic were the norm.

Have you noticed that every fictional account of the future is VERY DARK. Everyone is starving, or society has collapsed, or people are enslaved, or the planet is blowing up, etc.... Why do people even want to watch that garbage? I can't figure it out. Sure, given what the Bible tells us, we know what awaits this world, but I have been thinking about this one more and more. The NWO wants you to despair, to be afraid and in that premise gains more control. In fact one thing a Christian must strive for, is while the world goes into utter darkness holding on to God's truth and comfort and COURAGE in the face of what is coming.

Psa 31:24         Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

While doing this blog is not always easy, I do make sure to focus on other things in everyday life, reaching out to people, the 'happy' things of life as much is possible and what God leads me too. Remember to do that even keeping sober for the times we are in. Realize that they want this world under as much darkness as possible. 

Have you noticed the dehumanization out there? Where people aren't even seen as human. If named the "enemy" that can get even worse. Hmmm, it's being done with the Muslims. Yes there are wicked jihadists out there, but one thing, look back at history, the Germans and Japanese were "monsters incarnate" once upon a time too. The new world order does this with each and every planned war. Of course other groups do this against different groups, anti-semites, racists etc. I also see it with the Christian "culture wars" which make me more nauseous day by day. Fighting "the liberals" seems to mean more and more even trying to claim they are less then human. Where is the love for neighbors there? Where is the obeying of "Love your enemies?".

John 13;34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

The world will make it all about control and seeking to "rain down fire" on enemies.

Have you noticed the modern "situational ethics"? We know people have lost absolutes. While here one must discern between the police state control freaks and what is truly God's will, there are many who will tell you, "Look out for yourself first" and the "Don't be weak". The other day, a nonbeliever I know told me those messages pertaining to a toxic work environment, I said "Do you want to become like they are?" Some will tell you every situation is different for every person and the context is free-floating and will change the "truth". Here is a place where one better have God's Word in their heart and follow it, above all else.

Have you noticed the attacks on human attachment? If you have seen any fashion magazines lately, I threw one in the trash a friend had given me in a bag of magazines, then you can see for yourself the dead eyed stares that reach out, these aren't happy people but elevated in their aloofness. American society is one where people are becoming more separated, I wrote about this on this article:

Social Disconnection Vs. Loving One Another

Have you noticed the growing fear? Why do they keep speaking about zombie apocalypses? When I hear that garbage or see it in a magazine, I toss it away. I wonder what is going on with that meme which has lasted for months in duration, and it seems not to be going away, as just a short term fad. It seems to be a way another way, the elite are mocking the little people.  With the people they call "zombies", committing nauseating crimes never seen before, a Christian can discern what that is, total possession.

Sometimes I wonder how they are using the societal collapse themes to gain even more control. What if the collapse will be more gradual then that then just a big day of chaos? Anyhow, I have thought about how they have broken down every source of security especially in America for the average person, no more secure jobs, broken down societies and towns, everyone being forced to move to stay employed. This has been done on purpose. Why do so few question what has been done to people's lives?

Have you noticed the growing cruelties which once under pressure seem to be able to grow even greater? We know the news is full of this stuff everyday. This society has become a very scary place for the weak and vulnerable, from the elderly to the disabled. Both are told they are burdens. Those without the protection of family and friends really do face it out there. The messages out there are not of kindness but 'getting over' on people, "winning", "fitting in" and being a good droid that does everything they are told no matter how wicked, by the state, employer or pastor. I've posted about the hatred of the poor and disenfranchised that is growing in this society, 14 articles at count now. Expect that to only worsen. Where is the mercy?

I was watching Andy Griffith with a friend, trust me yes I know TV is far from perfect and realize I have to be careful what comes through on there, and noticed that in one episode, that the character Andy Griffith, talked about how being a sheriff didn't always automatically entail throwing everyone in the jail cell by the book, but caring about community and human beings.

I pointed this out to my friend, "Can you see this happening, in today's bean counter, draconian police state world?" They'd have his badge. I know it is just fiction but do you remember stories about cops throwing elderly women down on the ground 30 years ago? Most police officers are just trying to do a job under heavy pressures but obviously something has changed. Has anyone seen pictures of the police looking like military troops and felt uneasy?

I see grief on a daily basis, from people who have others who have simply been cold and uncaring to them. I seek to try to show love and care to who I can in the world, , but it is scary to see people who have everyone turn their back on them and even a mother who lost her husband see her adult children depart. This does not mean I am perfect myself, with challenges of my own, I worry I do not reach out to others enough. Of course there is a  major difference between those who are facing so much themselves they feel lost and bereft and not much help to others and those who have chosen the ice path to perdition. One can still find caring people, and great friends that like you question the system, but one sees new attitudes out there.

Have you noticed the focus on turning people into "lovers of themselves"?

There are many people out there who are LOVERS of THEMSELVES.[2 Timothy 1-2] The psychologists will toss out names like Narcissistic personality disorder  or for the more severe cases sociopathy/psychopathy, but realize when people lack affection and only care about themselves, the nuances change, manipulation and false charm becomes the name of the game. Vulnerable or loving emotions cease. Some will appear nice [like angels of light and be anything but]. I believe this society is producing "lovers of themselves" like gangbusters, think about the focus given to the young, where everything is about looks, about winning, about competition. I forget where I read this, but an author talked about the culture of self, vs the culture of character and talked about how in the old days, character, or one's moral values and actions counted for most, while today it has been transgressed into those who "fit in" and who has the best looks, the most money, so forth and so on.

I've covered this theme before in passing, but a lot of the false preachers exhibit those personality traits of facile charm, "I'm always right" attitudes,  lack of discomfort or fear or guilt and disregard for others. It's being seen in young people and all over and it's growing. No conviction by God, raised to "win" at all costs, without love or affection and to stomp others down, that is what you end up with.

So many groups in society focus and promote this self-love from Oprah to the focus on makeup, perfecting YOURSELF, and it's in the church. They are no different from the secular women's magazines. Even Gothard is running a camp for young women focusing on PHYSICAL CHARM and BEAUTY, how is that different from when Cosmopolitan magazine does it except for different ends? It's all about looks, all about being the perfect "STEPFORDED" whatever, perfect employee, daughter, wife, husband, etc. Physical beauty is always stressed. Think about that, while the Bible tells us beauty is vain, the world focuses on it above all else. Of course here I have talked about the BEST SELF now false Christianity. Well whose setting all these standards? How about God's standards? Throw off the yoke of the world's molding of you.

People who become self-focused, do not focus on others. If a young girl is overly concerned about her beauty, health and personal charm, this is not going to help in terms of a servants heart or meeting the needs of others, if anything she will continue to judge herself by the world's standards and seek to conform to them. What if a girl who is less physically beautiful by the world's standards goes to that conference? I do not see it bringing love but only condemnation to her life.

I feel a tsunami, of unspoken decline in human compassion and connection. I see it in the literature, the TV, and magazines and fiction even. Why has our modern mainstream art become so ugly? Yes it has. I was going to post some pictures here but everything looks "channeled". Modern art magazines seem to be displays of the evil that lies within minds rather then doing art for any higher ideals.  Hey think about those teens who love The Whosoevers, and have been indoctrinated into loving all those gross, dark, black, red, occult graphics.  Even the fashion to me looks gross. I know perhaps I sound like a curmudgeon here to an extent, but for all the focus on beauty, there seems to be very little real beauty.

There are changes coming in people and where people are ACCEPTING things that never were before acceptable in "polite" society of even 20-25 years ago. Remember when I wrote about this fictional book that promoted euthanasia? I still want to puke thinking of the library book group I was at, and folks thinking that book was OKAY. There were three Christians in the room and we were all horrified.

Even looking at the "Christian" church, having done this blog for acouple years, it seems to be a growing behemoth of coldness, blind politics and worse. If anything since I started doing this blog, things have gotten worse.

 Rev 3:17    Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

While there are some kind individuals in even false churches, much of the leadership doesn't seem to have that normal kindness or human touch. Did you know the Bible tells us evil men will grow WORSE?

13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

Right there for the reading. They are getting WORSE, and times are not like they were 50 years ago. So the thoughts that they have gotten far worse, it's biblical. It's not just our imagination or discernment ministries gone wild, it's the truth.

 With the Dominionism, where is the conscience or the love? It's all about forcing people to submit, and this taken from the political level all the way down to the home level and control. They don't care about the poor, they care about power and a sycophantic kneeling before it, with a desire for domination being the thing that their false leaders tap into. It has nothing to with true Christianity or love for others. We see a group that lacks "natural affection." They are no different from the nonbelievers they "fight" against.

What is a Christian to do facing all this? We can't be little children denying that evil exists. That is the tactic that many in the lost churches take, deciding to turn a blind eye to it all. One reason so many are deceived by false preachers is the very idea that sociopathic liars rule our society is beyond them, but what are all those biblical warnings for?

We have to stay separate from the world and that means protecting our minds and hearts. Part of this is being able to step outside the system of this world and looking to God's truths and testing the things we are told by what God has said. We have to examine ourselves too. I often fear this world influencing me to the worse end, and have prayed about this, we need to ask God to spiritually prepare us. Lately I am dealing with a lot of sadness watching what the world is turning into and even recent changes. Perhaps this is normal for a Christian's heart to mourn in this world. However God too has recently brought me blessings to counteract these things.

We also need to share God's love. I believe the influences are growing more and more subtle and infusing so many places it's not funny, and with the growing technology and globalism, their control and manipulations have only grown stronger. I wish for some I see that I could even do a better job of explaining some of what I am talking about.

I pray to God all the time to give me the strength to deal with these things all the time, we should all keep praying. God too, will give us what we need in dealing with this world, Praise Him everyday for this.

2 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

1 John 2:15-17 15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Uniting the World's Muslims?

Well if you have been following the news, there has been some serious violence and protests happening in the Middle East.....

U.S. warns of rising threat of violence amid outrage over anti-Islam video

Clinton demands Arab Spring nations protect embassies, halt violence

Looks to me like they are doing everything in their power to unite the Muslim world, perhaps to ignite World War III. Don't forget these are nations they still desire to integrate into the gap [force into the centralized world banks and world government]. So ask yourself what was all that Arab Spring stuff was about? Manufactured rebellions to bring MORE CHAOS? I don't think this article sees the greater picture and plan, the commenters still think the "right" is on their side,  but obviously the world has been made a much more dangerous place.
US President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy is in ruins. Like no president before him, he tried to win over the Arab world. After some initial hesitation, he came out clearly on the side of the democratic revolutions. … In this context, he must accept the fact that he has snubbed old close allies such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Egyptian military. And now parts of the freed societies are turning against the country which helped bring them into being. Anti-Americanism in the Arab world has even increased to levels greater than in the Bush era. It’s a bitter outcome for Obama.”
Now where did that anti-Islam video come from which formented the protests and violence?

I agree with news4themasses who questions the source of that film too.

"Fact: The movie is a fake, fraud, propaganda piece at best, lame excuse and purposefully created to incite the North African Muslim nations. The movie created by a “Coptic Christian” who is an Israeli who once lived in Egypt but is now in the US (in “hiding” ie, Protective Custody), if he’s even real. The movie supposedly was 2 hours long and took $5 million dollars to create, funds garnered by “Jewish donors.” The sub-B movie has been supposedly promoted by Terry Jones, a freak show of a fake pastor/cult leader that seems to represent all of America and all of Christianity overseas. The movie was translated into Arabic and uploaded to YouTube (but then mysteriously removed-now only clips exist), however another report I read stated it was “looped,” set to play over and over for all to see. In essence this supposed ghost sub-B movie that probably took less than $500,000 to make was dubbed in Arabic and used to INCITE the Muslim extremists in Egypt and Libya (and now today reports that Yemen has joined in the chaos)."
So Terry Jones helped advance it? Looks like he did.....

Remember this article?: "About the Church That Wants to Burn the Koran"

This man has just helped to pour gasoline on the fire and in my opinion is definitely a knowing deceiver and being used at a high level. I also find it interesting the maker of the film is a Coptic Christian. That is a religion that is not based in truth, and holds many beliefs in common with Catholicism and the Orthodox church though some differ.

For those who think Obama and Clinton are really shocked at the recent developments, I don't.  Hey both sides work for the same globalist agenda, don't forget that. Think about where things will go with such "unity" among Muslim nations? What if a new Islamic Caliphate is formed? Does the NWO desire for that to happen?  In forming this "opposition", they can then push for more agendas.  All the lies about the US importing "democracy" across the globe when we have lost it ourselves were just smokescreens. Think about their success of bringing multiple countries into chaos.

Here too, I have seen the so called the religious right's 'response" which has focused on desiring more military intervention and desire for war. I have to admit that has been sickening to watch. One can see where this world is going fast. Instead of following Jesus's commandments about loving our enemies, the so called "Christians" who call for mushroom clouds across the landscape lost the plot long ago, and have become pawns for Satan. I saw comments from "Christians" webwide, and many were focused on retribution. What else would come from the years and years of false leaders focused on hating Muslims instead of witnessing to them?

With that anti-Islam movie, where ever it came from they poured gasoline on the fire. The "revolutions" or "Arab Spring" were planned in my opinion. This blogger [not an endorsement] talks about the money issues and the Rothschild involvements [hey integrating the gap is about centralizing the global power]

I agree with a commenter that mentions the Vatican and the possible desire for a caliphate. Look, through all this, and don't forget the Hegelian Dialectic , they can foster WWIII. They have already been indoctrinating "Christians" into desiring war with Iran. One can just look at all the insanity and the usual new world order formula of "order out of chaos" seems in fully sway.

  Glenn Beck warned about this last year, not that I trust Glenn Beck who is a deceiver extraordinarie but maybe he knew some of the plan ahead of time?  It seems like the crusades are now being made global.

How much of this will be used for their plans, such as the desire to go to war with Iran, bringing fear and more across the world? 

The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. …. Albert Pike, Satanic World War 3 Plan.

The one world religionists already are weighing in such as the leader of the URI.

Middle East Violence Galvanizes Interfaith Leaders

Keep praying, sadly this world is going to descend into more chaos, hatred and violence as time marches on. Remember this is what we as Christians were instructed by God's Word to do:

Romans 12:17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Shallow American "Christianity"

So many reject the pleasant truths as well....

I don't agree with everything on this fellow's blog, he went through some hardships regarding a relationship with a young woman from a hyper-fundamentalist family and some of his view points I definitely differ from regarding certain issues [the culture war ones] but some of his view points ring definitely true though.  I do pray he sticks to God's Word, and doesn't let the foolishness he has seen and suffered from lead him away from God. 

The Election

We have a HUGE segment of evangelical Christianity that, aside from being clueless about their own faith, think that America is in some kind of national covenant with God like Israel was in the Old Testament. This goes beyond a basic misunderstanding of the old covenant and the new covenant into pure emotionalistic stupidity. Every four years, this group measures ALL sin and Christianity by three issues alone: 1) abortion 2) gays 3)Israel/Islam. They're convinced that God will judge our nation because of these issues. Jeez. If God were going to judge us as a nation, I think "The Bachelor", "Big Brother", and "Real Housewives" would make for better starting points. Christianity, with fundamentalism leading its charge, has just become SO shallow in this country. It literally diminishes its adherents, yet we think that we have some kind of national patent on Jesus Christ. No wonder we haven't noticed the rest of the world leaving us in the dust. There are a good number of international readers here, from every continent save for Antarctica, and in their emails to me even they've noticed that American Christianity is an entity all it's own, something they, as Christians in other countries, view with fascination, bemusement, sometimes confusion, and often see as generally bizarre.

What were Jesus' views on American politics/the Republican platform and the Democratic platform?
If you can answer those honestly, in Jesus' words (not Paul's or any other biblical character), without tying a rationalized knot in your rear-end or speaking on behalf of Jesus, then you hold your head up high, march proudly into your voting booth this November...and vote for a Mormon like a good Christian should. Hypocrisy and stupidity abounds.....

Hey the international folks aren't the only ones who think it is all bizarre. I know I watch the increasingly nauseating displays and think American "Christianity" has grown so shallow. [Yes there are many good and true Christians in America, but here I am dealing with the false churches and prevalant culture forces out there] When I was saved, I went to a church that was more rural and remote, though the sneaking tendrils of Dominionism lapped around it, later when I would visit others in a new community, I realized that the "evangelical" world had formed it's own subculture, one I felt VERY LITTLE in common with, on so many fronts regarding my own roots, socioeconomic status and more, it wasn't funny. However it didn't matter, Jesus Christ has and been my focus, the only thing is, as commented on this blog, this "subculture" has very little to do with Him. Not fitting into it is a good thing.

Keep in mind the rest of the world however has the same delusions covering it, though in different forms especially the influx of Pentecostalism but isn't there a special flavor for Americans with the escape ready rapture and extreme politics? Haven't we seen in the last 10 years the absurdity growing?

What kind of witness does mainstream American "evangelicalism" have for the world, but an evil one, and yes I am putting "Christian" in quotes all over the place on this article because I believe it is anything but. Non-believers see "Christians" as war mongerers and sychophants to a corrupt political order. Even now, the ex-fundamentalist crowd is right to call out this particular hypocrisy....

I see no rescue coming forth from those who demand greater intellectualism, such as the Mark Noll crowd, that can be it's own path to deceit, early church fathers, and trusting the wisdom of this world first. The dry book intellectual crowd, always seem to come out parading their new status as a Catholic making those decisions on endless lists of false theologians.  The Calvinists who seem to be an intellectual bunch, retain endless errors and don't wonder why their founder put people to the stake.  The world view of the secular intellectual world, as it stands is one that is not welcoming to Christians.

Ecclesiastes 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

Here we don't want to fall into the trap of intellectual pride. Our dependence is always to be on the Holy Spirit as our teacher. [John 14:26]. The world however has much to deceive everyone from the highest genius IQ to the most simple-minded. In fact the genius IQs and Mensa crowd, via pride can be the most misled. UU churches were full of the intellectual cream of the crop.  Always when facing an issue, ask God to teach you, He will never disappoint.

The universities aren't hiring born again Christians, they are busy indoctrinating young people. This is something the evangelical world has right but what does it matter when they replace things with their own false indoctrination?  There is nothing wrong with knowledge and learning but it has to be balanced with God's wisdom and a humble approach. However the other side, with the folks that have rewritten history, and who offer their own shallow solutions is another trap that goes along with the refusing of biblical knowledge or even to learn, and being so easily fooled time and time again.

1 Cor 1:27 God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

Why else has American "Christianity" with its Dominionist parades, re-written history a la David Barton, gained such an influence on the "Christian" culture? Hey they know most Americans aren't going to know things about how Thomas Jefferson wrote a "Bible" where he took everything "supernatural" out of it, praised by the UUs by the way,  so Barton's claims as a Jefferson being an strong "Christian" are a total joke. When I read the articles about David Barton's book being removed, I thought, "Hmm they must have found out about THIS BIBLE." After all for over 12 years, I heard Jefferson praised as a Unitarian. I thought to myself, "How could they miss that?". Realizing the David Barton book was selling like hot cakes was scary.

Why are these supposed Christian teachers, rewriting history a la George Orwell and the Ministry of Truth? Why is it so important? Countries rise and fall and those who depend on world leaders consider what the Bible says about "fornicating kings" need to wake up. There is nothing wrong with loving one's own country, but God is to come first. The love of truth is being thrown away while "Christians" march blindly behind the likes of Barton, Glenn Beck and others who weave a socio-political picture of dominance. To do so, they must form a NEW MYTHOLOGY, and are working upon this with increased VIGOR. One thing I tell people in everyday life, when language is changed, when history is changed, when they desire for you to set aside facts you know are true, they are up to something and it's no good. We are seeing a revamping of many things for dubious ends.

One thing I have thought about is they really are busy, formulating a "new culture" for Christians on different fronts to serve just about every crowd, from the Wallis types to Vision Forum elites. They have a LEFT side and RIGHT side to that setup too.  I guess when the Emergents came on scene 10-15 years ago they really meant all that stuff about reformulating culture. But even there they have traps waiting for so many. There are Emergents who will say, Yes "evangelical" culture is shallow come join us as an "alternative" but are they really? Well aren't both camps FOCUSED on changing culture, and THIS WORLD? Keep in mind the stage show of the right and left in politics applies here to religion.  They all converge to the globalist, authoritarian middle. They all want "someone" in charge. 

Keep in mind Rome loves all this focus on "Christian cultures".

What is interesting is watching these types, formulating life in different ways, not according to the Bible but according to a  caricature of what the outside world thinks "Christians" are.  Well if we realize most within the mainstream of evangelical thought are under the sway of wolves and not really born again, the surface stuff is what they cling to instead of Jesus Christ. This becomes the definition of their whole life.  The outward trappings become what is the most important.  I wrote on the last Duggar article, that the Duggar show is being used as an influence to redefine "Christian" culture, a stepfording as it were, where lack of individuality rules and blind obedience to authority. There is a reason that the Duggar adults aren't being allowed to grow up, they want people who will obey, not those who will think, question and follow God's will over the authority of man. They don't want people to grow up in the Lord. They don't want you or me to grow up either. If we have to a certain point, we will see through the whole "cultural" fog and pick up on what is missing.

Ephesians 4:15

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

 I think about all these false teachers and how lately even in my head they all overlap because they are so much the same, teaching the same false things and they are so very shallow. Shallowness is one thing they all hold in common. With the help of the massively dumbing down American culture, we have had decades of the churches especially the megachurches working to strip everything down to the lowest common denominator, where thoughtfulness and depth was thrown away for demographics. Today we see the results.

Why because the SURFACE APPEARANCE is what is cared most about and with no Holy Spirit indwelling for the legions of unsaved but who profess "Christ", this is why one starts seeing a SAMENESS to it all and so many blindly lining up.

Colossians 2:8
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Mar 4:5    And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:

They are rewriting history for a reason and re-inventing culture to take people down very bad paths.

For those of us who have the depth of God's love in our life, pray for people to come into the truth and to realize the depth of deception.

Ray Comfort's Connections to Gothard and Friends

I was commenting here...More Disturbing Things about the Duggars
 when a reader informed me the Duggars have recently gone "soul-winning" with Ray Comfort. I asked  "Why isn't Ray Comfort warning the whole family about Gothard?"

Well I got an answer to my question......

The time with the Duggars starts at around 17:50 in the video.

I know that Ray Comfort has hung out with Doug Phillips of Vision forum and even posted about it here:

Ray Comfort and Doug Phillips of Vision Forum?

So I did some digging and wondered what is the relationship between Gothard and Ray Comfort? Is there one?

What is weird is Ray Comfort says Gothard helped get his first video out...You know the one that made his name for him? Right on the Living Waters website, thanks is given to Bill Gothard.

"1990: The teaching was published in a book called, Hell's Best Kept Secret. 1992: Thanks to Bill Gothard, over 30,000 pastors saw this teaching via video, and the ministry began to grow."
Here too, Gothard is credited with help in getting the video out:

Here we see the support of Bill Gothard's ministry. I do not think that is a good list of names, including mostly the compromised and ecumenical. Now that IBLP is on there. This is Bill Gothard's organization.

 "Ray Comfort's ministry has been commended by Franklin Graham, Ravi Zacharias, John MacArthur, David Jeremiah, Josh McDowell, Dr. Norman Geisler, Bill Gothard, David Wilkerson, Joni Eareckson Tada, and many other Christian leaders. He has written for Billy Graham's Decision magazine and Bill Bright's Worldwide Challenge. His literature is used by the Moody Bible Institute, Leighton Ford Ministries, Campus Crusade For Christ, Institute in Basic Life Principles, and the Institute for Scientific & Biblical Research. He has also written more than 60 books and is a regular platform speaker at Southern Baptist State Conferences. His videos were seen by more than 30,000 pastors in 1992, and he has spoken in more than 700 churches, from almost every denomination."

What do you think of that the fact Ray Comfort's literature is used by Bill Gothard's organizations?

Others have exposed Gothard's endless false teachings.

So sadly, Ray Comfort certainly wouldn't be warning the Duggars about Gothard and ATI or any of his false teachings.

What is sad, is this is a teacher that is accepted more by the mainstream and invited to a slew of evangelical and other churches and he can't even discern the false teachings in Gothardism?
