What Has Happened To America?

Is this still the America founded by the Founding Fathers? Or have we become no different than that which our forefathers sought to break free from? Are we still free? Or are we blindly allowing ourselves to be enslaved?

9/11, 11yrs Later

9/11 11yrs later
By Rev. Dr. Red

Last year in 9/11/01 Remembered. We Will Never Forget I gave a brief of where I was on the day of 9/11. I also covered the fact that we were attacked as an act of war. We were attacked not as a secular nation, but a Christian nation.

This year I must say Im even more disgusted then I was last year. Atheists are attcking the 9/11 Memorial Cross. They’re suggesting it has no right to exist. They are no better than there Islamic counterparts.

9/11 was a very tragic day. 3,000 people lost their lives. People lost their mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters. To think that atheists such as the Freedom From Religion Foundation would try to remove the 9/11 Memorial Cross from being exhibited is nothing more than a lack of respect for the families of those who died and nothing less than ignorance of the very nation they live in.

Atheists claim the statement “Live and let live”, yet they practice the very opposite. They only “let live” those who believe as they do, are anti-Christian, or a public-silent Christian. They are trying to remove Christianity from our nation. They are amongst the most disrespectful and arrogant group of people around today.

Let’s remember those who attacked us were muslims. It was a wager of war from Islam. Today, our enemy is the Satanic alliance of Islam and Atheism.

This 9/11/12, we pray for those who were lost in the attacks. We pray the muslims and atheists will find peace in Jesus Christ. We pray that America will return to God before it is too late.

Another fact I find disturbing is the very fact that many Americans 20 and younger know little to nothing about 9/11. 9/11 was a very tragic day that is barely being covered in the govt indoctrination centers known as our public schools. I feel it is a disgrace that so many young people know so little about 9/11. Parents must stop putting all their faith in national propaganda curriculum to teach their children. Parents must start taking it upon themselves to make sure their children know about 9/11 and its significance.

We must not allow our fears or government red-tape to prevent us from speaking truth. The enemy may have won the battle. They may win the battle over the 9/11 Memorial Cross. But we will win the war.

Quotations from the Koran:

2:190-193 Fight in the cause of God, those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loveth not transgressors. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out: For tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; But fight them not at the sacred Mosque unless they first fight you there; But if they fight you, Slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith. But if they cease, God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God; but if they cease, Let there be no hostility except to those who practise oppression.”
2:216-217 Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But God knoweth, and ye know not. They ask thee concerning fighting in the Prohibited Month. Say: “Fighting therein is a grave (offense); but graver is it in the sight of God to prevent access to the path of God, to deny Him, to prevent access to the Sacred Mosque, and drive out its members. Tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter. Nor will they cease fighting you until they turn you back from your faith if they can. And if any of you turn back from their faith and die in unbelief, their works will bear no fruit in this life and in the Hereafter; they will be Companions of the Fire and will abide therein.
2:244-245 Then fight in the cause of God, and know that God heareth and knoweth all things. Who is he that will loan to God a beautiful loan, which God will double unto his credit and multiply many times? It is God that giveth (you) want or plenty, and to Him shall be your return.
4:74-77 Let those fight in the cause of God who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter, to him who fighteth in the cause of God, whether he is slain or gets victory, soon shall We give him a reward of great (value). And why should ye not fight in the cause of God and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)? Men, women, and children whose cry is: “Our Lord! rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from Thee one who will protect; and raise for us from Thee one who will help!” Those who believe fight in the cause of God, and those who reject faith fight in the cause of evil: so fight ye against the friends of Satan: feeble indeed is the cunning of Satan. Hast thou not turned thy vision to those who were told to hold back their hands (form fight) but establish regular prayers and spend in regular charity? When (at length) the order for fighting was issued to them, behold! a section of them feared men as, or even more than, they should have feared God: they say: “Our Lord! why hast Thou ordered us to fight? Wouldst Thou not grant us respite to our (natural) term, near (enough)?” Say: “Short is the enjoyment of this world: the Hereafter is the best for those who do right: never will ye be dealt with unjustly in the very least!
4:95-96 Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of God with their goods and their persons. God hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath God promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward: Ranks specially bestowed by Him, and Forgiveness and Mercy. For God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
5:51 O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily God guideth not a people unjust.
5:72-73: They do blaspheme who say: “God is Christ the son of Mary.” But said Christ: “O Children of Israel! worship God, my Lord and your Lord.” Whoever joins other gods with God, – God will forbid him the garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrongdoers be no one to help. They do blaspheme who say: God is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One God. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them.
8:12-15 Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.” This because they contended against God and His Apostle: If any contend against God and His Apostle, God is strict in punishment. Thus (will it be said): “Taste ye then of the (punishment): for those who resist God, is the penalty of the Fire.” O ye who believe! when ye meet the Unbelievers in hostile array, never turn your backs to them.
8:37-39: In order that God may separate the impure from the pure, put the impure, one on another, heap them together, and cast them into Hell. They will be the ones to have lost. Say to the Unbelievers, if (now) they desist (from Unbelief), their past would be forgiven them; but if they persist, the punishment of those before them is already (a matter of warning for them). And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God altogether and everywhere; but if they cease, verily God doth see all that they do.
9:5 But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (trick in war for deceiving and outwitting the enemy); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, then open the way for them: for God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
9:14 Fight them, and God will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame, help you (to victory) over them, heal the breasts of Believers
9:20 Those who believe, and suffer exile and fight with might and main, in God’s cause, with their goods and their persons, have the highest rank in the sight of God: they are the people who will achieve (salvation).
9:29 “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the last day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and his apostle nor acknowledge the religion of truth of the people of the Book (the Jews and the Christians) until they pay the Jizya [tax on non-Muslims] with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.”
9:41 Go ye forth, (whether equipped) lightly or heavily, and strive and struggle [fight in war], with your goods and your persons, in the cause of God. That is best for you, if ye (but) knew.
9:73 O Prophet! strive hard [wage war] against the unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell, – an evil refuge indeed.
9:123: O ye who believe! fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you: and know that God is with those who fear Him.
22:38-39 Verily God will defend (from ill) those who believe: verily, God loveth not any that is a traitor to faith, or shows ingratitude. To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight) because they are wronged-and verily, God is Most powerful for their aid
25:52 So obey not the unbelievers and fight strenuously with them in many a strenuous fight.
47:4 Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been God’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of God, – He will never let their deeds be lost.
48:29: “Those who follow Muhammad are merciless for the unbelievers but kind to each other.”
60:4: We have renounced you; and enmity and hatred is begun between us and you for ever, until ye believe in Allah alone
61:9-11 It is He Who has sent His Apostle with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, that he may proclaim it over all religion, even though the Pagans may detest (it). O ye who believe! shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a grievous Penalty?- That ye believe in God and His Apostle, and that ye strive (fight) in the Cause of God, with your property and your persons: that will be best for you, if ye but knew!
66:9 O Prophet! make war on the infidels and hypocrites, and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their abode! and wretched the passage to it!

The Hadith:

Hadith 1:13– “I have been ordered by Allah to fight with people till they bear testimony to the fact that there is no God but Allah.”
Hadith 1.24 “Narrated Ibn `Umar: Allah’s Apostle said: “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers”
Hadith 1.25″Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle was asked, “What is the best deed?” He replied, “To believe in Allah and His Apostle (Muhammad). The questioner then asked, “What is the next (in goodness)? He replied, “To participate in Jihad (religious fighting) in Allah’s Cause.”
Hadith 19:4294 “Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war.”
Hadith 1:35 “The person who participates in Allah’s cause (namely, in battle). . will be recompensed by Allah either with reward or booty or will be admitted to Paradise.”
Hadith 9:4 “Wherever you find infidels kill them; for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.”
Hadith 9:50, 57 “No Umma (a member of Muslim community) should be killed for killing a Kafir (an infidel). . Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.”
Sahih Muslim 4363: “You (the Jews) should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle and I wish to expel you from this land (Arabia)
Sahih Muslim 4366 Narrated by Umar ibn al-Khattab. Umar heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) say: I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslims

Words of Muslim leaders:

“Those who know nothing about Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those people are witless. Islam says: ‘Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all!’ Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by the infidel? Islam says: ‘Kill them, put them to the sword and scatter them.’ Islam says: ‘Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword.’ The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for the Holy Warriors! Does all this mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.” (Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini)

“In the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and the obligation to convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or force. The other religious groups (Christianity and Judaism) did not have a universal mission, and the holy war was not a religious duty to them, save only for purposes of defense. (Ibn Khaldun, The Muqadimmah: Ail Introduction to History, Islamic historian, 1377 AD)

“Islam makes it incumbent on all adult males to prepare themselves for the conquest of countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world.” Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iranian Shiite mullah)

“the religion of Islam could be above all, so that all areas of life could be guided by Islam, and so that the earth could be cleansed from unbelief” (The Islamic Council in Chechnya)

“The foremost duty of Islam is to depose the government and society of unbelievers (jahiliyyah) from the leadership of man.” (Sayyid Qutb, Egyptian)

“Uniting the five pillars of Islam is the principle Jihad (lit. struggle). In Islam a Muslim must struggle against himself and his habits to submit fully to God. He must also struggle to guide his family, relatives, and friends to bring them to Islam and to convey the message of Islam itself. Since Islam is totalistic, Muslims wherever they may be, must struggle and sacrifice their energy, time, and material resources to establish Muslim congregations, mosques, madrassas (religious schools) for the maintenance and spread of Islam. Where Muslims make up a substantial fraction of the population, they must struggle to establish the Islamic Shariah (law) as their rule for living, with the aim to ultimately establish a full Islamic state in which Islam would be the ruling ideology and system. To understand this last point is very important for it is part and parcel of Islam to seek its full manifestation and where Muslims fail politically or economically, they also fail spiritually. It is innate to Islam to be militantly uncompromising with alien systems since all sovereignty and glory belongs to God, to the Prophets (PBUH) and to the believers.” (Spirit of Toronto, Ontario, Canada: 1834-1984, Lindsay Holton, 1983 AD, Foreword by David Crombie, MP: Secretary of State and Minister of Multiculturalism, Islam – A Dynamic Stability, by Camel Xerri Abdullah Idris, Islamic Center Toronto Jami Mosque, p282-293)

Demise of Christianity in America?

Lately there seems to be a left vs right argument on whether Christianity is being persecuted in America. Some of the arguments from leftists are laughable at best. Reality is Christians, as a whole, are not speaking up out of fear. Not fear of God, but fear of anti-Christian organizations. We may very well be witnessing the demise of Christianity in America, lest Christians put there fear in God.

Government-Categorized Homegrown Terrorists

Government-Categorized Homegrown Terrorists
by Carl Parnell

Since the terrorist attack on New York City on September 11, 2001, the federal government has worked vehemently to prevent any future terrorist attacks on American soil. As a result, the Department of Homeland Security and the Justice Department have categorized groups of people who should be considered “potential terrorists.” Therefore, if all Americans knew the characteristics of “potential terrorists,” it would make it much easier to prevent future terrorist attacks. However, the list of those who have been categorized as “potential homegrown terrorists” by the federal government is ludicrous. Also, the least likely Americans have been labeled as the most likely to attempt to destroy America from within. But, based on the actions of the three branches of government, since the destruction of the Twin Towers in New York City, it is the federal government that should be viewed as the group that is most responsible for sponsoring and supporting homegrown terrorism for the purpose of preventing Americans from showing outright dissent toward their federal government.

But, first, let’s look at the groups that the federal government has classified as dangerous, “potential terrorists.” The first and most dangerous group, according to the federal government, consists of any person who professes to be a born-again Christian. As a result, in the years to come, Christians in America will most likely face severe persecution from the government, and possibly incarcerated in prison without a trial, if they dare voice their opposition to America’s elected leaders who are determined to undermine the U.S. Constitution. Of course, most Christians would not agree that the federal government has categorized them as “potential terrorists.” But, several whistleblower messages from the White House prove that the federal government have labeled Christians as stated. However, on April 7, 2009, a Department of Homeland Security report classified Christians as “potential terrorists.” Three main provisions of this unclassified document as reported in WorldNetDaily were:

1. It warned law enforcement to watch out for individuals with “radical” ideologies based on Christian views, such as opposing ( illegal immigration )

2. It warned law enforcement to watch out for individuals with “radical” ideologies based on Christian views, such as opposing (abortion )

3. It warned law enforcement to watch out for individuals with “radical” ideologies based on Christian views, such as opposing (federal taxes )

Therefore, Christians in America must become aware of the anti-Christian sentiment that exists in the federal government’s attack against terrorism in America. As stated earlier, just imagine having to spend most of your life in prison just because you were a law-abiding Christian who just happened to be against illegal immigration, ungodly abortion, and extremely high federal taxes. But, it could very well happen if America’s elected leaders continue to usurp the authority of a Judeo-Christian based U.S. Constitution and continue to promote an un-American, socialistic agenda.

The second most dangerous group of “potential terrorists” in America are veterans of the Afghanistan War and the Iraqi War. Of course, it is an absurdity to label the men and women who risked their lives on foreign soil to defend America’s way of life. But, obviously, most people would refuse to accept that the federal government would categorize America’s veterans as has been stated. However, in the same Homeland Security report mentioned previously, America’s veterans were classified as having the ability to become homegrown terrorists. The
report stated:

*The return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks

*Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists,” it says. “DHS/I&A is concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities

Therefore, United States military veterans must become aware of the anti-veteran sentiment that exists in the federal government’s attack against terrorism in America. But, why does the federal government fear the very people that it trained to protect the United States from its bonafide enemies? What is the federal government hiding that would ultimately cause veterans to take up arms against them. Could it be the nationalization of the National Guard? Could it be the passage of legislation that is on the verge of elimination the rights given to Americans by the Bill of Rights? Could it be the passage of the recent Senate Bill 1867 that would give the military permission to arrest any “potential terrorists” anywhere in the world and put them in prison without the right of habeas corpus (the right to a hearing and trial)? Could it be the running of the government by a president who has decided to bypass Congress? Ultimately, could it be that the federal government is attempting to get non-veterans to worry more about so-called disloyal veterans than some members of the federal government who are attempting to destroy the freedoms and sovereignty of the United States through legislation, regulation, and taxation. Of course, regardless of the reason for labeling veterans as “potential terrorists,” the federal government’s rationale is undeniably and unequivocally wrong.

The third most dangerous group of “potential terrorists” in America are those people who complain about the federal government’s drive for more nationally-centralized authority over the states and the masses of people. This can easily be seen in the attacks by the current administration toward the Tea Party Movement. According to Wikipedia,

The Tea Party Movement is an American populist political movement that is generally recognized as a conservative and libertarian, and has sponsored protests and supported political candidates since 2009. It endorses reduced government spending, opposition to taxation in varying degrees, reduction of the national debt and federal budget deficit, and adherence to an originalist interpretation of the United States Constitution.

In its attacks against the Tea Party Movement, the federal government constantly depicts members of this political movement as “potential terrorists” whose main goal is to overthrow the very government that they are attempting to restore to its original glory. In fact, according to Jeffrey T. Kuhner in a Washington Times article,

Leftist expediency now requires that the most heinous, reckless and degrading comments be used. Tea Parters are not simply being slandered, they are being dehumanized. Ironically, it is liberals who are paving the way for potential political violence. Terrorists, hostage-takers, suicide bombers, neo-Nazis, the Christian Taliban- all of the epithets regularly thrown at Tea Party members by rabid progressives-eventually foster one overriding emotion: hatred.

Therefore, this progressive hatred is the driving force that unifies members of the current administration in their effort to possibly silence America’s last line of defense against the left-wing, Democratic agenda to turn America into a European-style, socialistic utopia.

The fourth most dangerous group of “potential terrorists” in America are those people who purport the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which is the right to bear arms. In fact, based on several documented sources, President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Attorney-General Eric Holder do not support the Second Amendment fully, as written by the Founding Fathers. Basically, they believe that the Second Amendment does not give Americans the right to bear arms. They believe that the U.S. Constitution just gives the military and law enforcement agencies the right to bear arms. As a result, they support various types of gun control legislation, even working with the un-American United Nations to pass an international Small Arms Treaty. According to a MarketWatch article, The National Association For Gun Rights stated that if passed by the UN and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the UN “Small Arms Treaty” would almost certainly FORCE national governments to:

1. Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding citizens cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;

2. CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);

3. BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;

4. Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION…”

Therefore, if America’s leaders give in to the demands of the United Nations, America’s days as a free nation will be numbered, since only an armed citizenry can defend itself against those who want America to lose its sovereignty and god-given constitutional rights. But, why would the federal government attempt to amend the Constitution in order to prevent America citizens from owning weapons in order to protect their personal property and personal lives? Why would the federal government attempt to deny millions of people the opportunity to hunt deer and other wild game for sport and for food? Could it be that the federal government is afraid that these gun owners would be able to possibly defend America from those in the federal government whose major agenda is to take the United States government hostage from within? Regardless of the rationale for attempting to deny Americans their god-given, constitutional rights, the federal government must realize that Americans have owned guns for too long to haphazardly give up their guns to a governmental entity for any possible misguided reason.

The fifth most dangerous group of “potential terrorists” in America are a group classified as “Preppers.” According to Wikipedia, preppers are individuals or groups who are actively preparing for future possible disruptions in local, regional, national, or international social or political order. They often prepare for this anticipated disruption by having emergency medical training, stockpiling food and water, preparing for self-defense and self-sufficiency, and/or building structures that will help them survive. Anticipated disruptions include the following:

1. Natural Disasters
2. Manmade Disasters
3. General Collapse of Society
4. Economic Collapse
5. A Sudden Pandemic
6. Widespread Chaos

However, according to Rand Paul, Republican Senator from Kentucky, the federal government now considers anyone who has more than a week’s supply of food on hand as a “potential terrorist.” If that is the case, all shoppers at Sam’s Club or Costco are “potential terrorists.” On the surface though, that seems rather humorous. But, in reality, it isn’t as a result of Senator Paul’s other warning. He “warns that under the new provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act, which just passed Congress resoundingly, the federal government could lock you up indefinitely without due process and without being convicted of a crime.” As is obvious, it really does not matter who a person votes for any longer. Apparently, most of America’s politicians have a strong desire to keep their political positions until they die and, at the same time, deny the very people that they represent their basic freedoms of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Therefore, will American citizens be able to keep their constitutional rights? Of course, even more importantly, what can be done to reverse the current trend in America to create a full-fledged socialist nation? Ultimately, could it possibly be too late?

The sixth most dangerous group of “potential terrorists” in America are home schoolers. Of course, it is obvious that home schoolers are parents who teach their children at home because their belief system is completely opposite of the federally-sponsored and funded public school systems. According to WorldNetDaily, there are several major reasons why parents teach their children at home and keep them out of the public school systems in their states. They are:

1. Concern about the School Environment (Safety, Drugs, and Negative Peer Pressure)

2. Able to Instruct Children in Religious and Moral Issues

3. Dissatisfaction with Academic Instruction

4. Using a Nontraditional Approach to Children’s Education

As a result, the federal government has targeted home schoolers as “potential terrorist.” Basically, the federal government is upset that these home schoolers are not being taught from curriculums that promote the government’s anti-Christian, pro-homosexual, politically-correct agenda. Therefore, the politicians and bureaucrats in Washington, D. C. are working overtime to make home schooling against the law in America. In fact, there are bills in Congress, that if passed, would force Christian schools and home schoolers to teach the same curriculums as public schools. Also, the federal government might just be upset because home schoolers tend to do better on standardized tests than their public school counterparts. According to three studies completed in the United States and two studies in Canada, public school students have average scores in the 50th percentile, where as, home schoolers have average scores in the 65th to 80th percentile.

However, the main rationale for attacking home schoolers and classifying them as “potential terrorists” is the federal government’s desire to force home schoolers back into public school classrooms in order for them to be indoctrinated to a humanistic, atheistic belief system that is contrary to their parents Judeo-Christian belief system. In fact, John Dewey, the Father of Progressive Education in America, made a provocative anti-Christian quote that appeared in The Humanist Magazine in 1983 that should give home school parents one more vital reason for keeping their children out of public schools. He said,

I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers that correctly perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being…The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and new — the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism, resplendent with the promise of a world in which the never-realized Christian ideal of ‘love thy neighbor’ will finally be achieved.

Needless to say, it is rather obvious how John Dewey felt about America’s public school system and the purpose of education in America. Sadly, as is obvious, too, there are many politicians and educators in the United States who feel the same way today. Therefore, home schoolers should keep molding and developing minds that fear God and that promote the way of life guaranteed to all American citizens by the Supreme Law of the Land, the United States Constitution.

Finally, despite the attacks against home schooling, there have been many famous and successful men and women who were home schooled. Some of the more prominent are:

*Abraham Lincoln-Sixteenth President of the United States

*Andrew Carnegie-Carnegie Steel Company

*Booker T. Washington-Teacher, Author, and first President of Tuskegee Institute

*Woodrow Wilson-Twenty-Eighth President of the United States

*C. S. Lewis-Writer, Critic, and Theologian

*Joseph Priestly-Father of Modern Chemistry

*Frank Lloyd Wright-Iconic Architect

*Albert Einstein-Theory of Relativity

*Pearl S. Buck-Pulitzer and Nobel Prize-winning Author

*Tim Tebow-Christian Professional Football Quarterback

In conclusion, the sand in America’s “freedom” sand clock has almost emptied from the top into the bottom. If America is to remain free from the tyranny of those who would destroy it from within, a miracle must take place. Therefore, Christians of all faiths must once again pray to the God of the Founding Fathers and ask Him to forgive them of their individual and collective sins. Then and only then will He turn America’s “freedom” sand clock upside down again so that the sands of “freedom” will once again move slowly and continually throughout America. As stated in II Chronicles 7:14, “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.” If not, America’s governmental obituary would be written very soon. This obituary would read,

Today, Uncle Sam died. He was 235 years old. His death was seemingly a shock to most people who loved him so dearly. However, there were many warning signs that he was on the verge of dying, but most of his friends ignored these warnings. As a result, nothing was done to prevent the demise of their “freedom-loving” friend. Therefore, with the death of Uncle Sam, those who cherished the life that he lived would only have a memory to look back on. Then, the sands of time of America’s constitutional republican form of government, that Uncle Sam promoted and lived on a daily basis, would forever be blown away by the “winds of governmental change,” a change from individual rights for all Americans to complete governmental control of the masses.

Halfpasthuman – Your burning, twisting, writhing death

I came across this from a contact on youtube. I feel everyone should read this. I’ve already posted this to facebook. Now I’m posting here. Please read and pass it on.

 

Halfpasthuman – Your burning, twisting, writhing death

Your last 26 days of life…

On March 2, 2012, the zionists (isreali mossad and cia agents) who are the stooges of the central banksters, will attack an American naval ship (as they did with the USS Liberty).

They will try to sink this ship with a huge loss of life of American sailors.

They will pretend to be Iranians to make you mad at Iran.

They intend to provoke officialdom in the US and Russia and China into killing us all.

Much of officialdom (masons, illuminati, agents of rome (opus dei et al), zionists) are in on this false flag attack, and their fervent hope for WAR to end your life, and the lives of over ONE BILLION other humans (your relatives on this planet).

So much of humanity on this planet has been made crazy by the rothchilds/rockefellers and all the priests/potentates and other assholes who put themselves on top of us all by lying and cheating and murder.

They plan on yet another fucking great war to kill off as many of us as they can.

If they succeed, and the war is created;

no more taxes will i pay ever to anyone.

no more of their laws will i obey.

if i survive the smoking, nuclear wasteland that will be the west coast of the USofA and most of earth, and there are any of the former central banksters and their masters alive, i will swear the remnant of my life to bringing them to justice. And i know what that means, even if the psychopathic pedofilic fucktards do not.

My message to them…all of officialdom is simple….you know fear. You live on the fear of others. Now it is your turn.

Fear us now.

We know you now.

Your names are recorded.

Your lives are in our hands.

Killing billions of us only convinces the rest that we have nothing left to lose.

You taught us to fear you.

Now the fear is gone, only hate remains.

Fear us now.

Or we come for you later.

Attack on Christianity in America

As has been predicted, there is a major assault on Christianity right here in America. We’ve already wrote about the Bible Study in CA, the Crosses in Texas and NH, the Chuch in upstate NY. Now we have a direct assault on faith through Obama’s regime via ObamaCare. They feel it is their right to tell religious entities what they can and cannot believe.

Regardless what denomination you are or your personal beliefs towards the Catholic church may be, it is important the entire Christian Church comes together on this and joins the Catholics in the fight against this new law.

Spiritual Messiah Ministries, in the fight for Truth, Justice, and Freedom, join the Catholic Church in this fight against being forced to do what it is we are against. No religious or spiritual entity should be forced to do anything by anyone that goes against their belief’s.

Below are a few links to news stories covering this topic:

NWO: Immortality Through TransHumanism

NWO: Immortality Through Transhumanism

By Rev. Dr. Red Conrad, D.D.

Everyone wishes they were healthier in one way or another. Most would like to stop or slow-down the aging process. Many would like to see an end to cancers and diseases. Many even dream of immortality. But how far are you willing to go to achieve such a feat?

Many understand you can become healthier and live longer through taking care of your body and eating the right foods. Preferrably Organic, no GMO’s. People also realize that they can reverse damage done on the cellular level by taking in foods that contain anti-oxidants such as Resveratrol, which can be found in grapes and some exotic berries. So through eating healthy and organically and taking care of the body we can live long healthy lives.

But what about the whole immortality thing? Scientists are trying to come up with ways we can literally live forever. The DoD (Dept. Of Defense) is going as far as seeking out technology and drugs to create “Super Soldiers” that can run for 168hours (7 full days) without any sleep. Scientists say that with the technological advances we could see this become a reality within the next 10yrs (that would be by the year 2021). The suggestion is being made that humans will literally be able to re-grow lost parts or replace bad organs as necessary. Thats right, we will be able to regenerate ourselves. If it comes to a point where our bodies can’t handle the stress, no worry. Mechanical replacements.

There is already work being done to literally transfer the human consciousness into a robotic body. It is being suggested that humans will have the option to be cyborgs (half-human and half-machine) by replacing parts with mechanical equivalents or implanting mechanical technology into the body. They say one problem they are seeing is that they will need donors. But not to worry because the first people “downloaded” will most likely be in artificial bodies. These scientists seem to feel they are creating a better and invincible species of human.

Whatever happened to God? Did He not promise us eternal life; you know, immortality? The thing is, us Israelites (Children of God (Christians, Jews)), are not of this world. We were told not be concerned with things of this world. We are to live by the Commandments, and upon Judgement we will return home. It is all in the Holy Bible. So if Israelites are not to be concerned with worldly things, why would we want immortality in the physical world? The answer is simple, we don’t.

These scientists who are working on making this new species of human to achieve immortality in the physical world are simply not Israelites. They are spawns of Satan. They are trying to act as if they are God Himself. They feel if they can achieve immortality they can escape God’s judgement and avoid eternal damnation.

They may be able to achieve such technology and feel as though they have won. But what they fail to realize is that everything is happening as it has been written. They cannot avoid judgement and they will not avoid damnation. The only way to achieve immortality and avoid damnation is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. The Jesus Christ of the Bible, Son of God. Not the Jesus Christ of these false religions or mainstream society.

Whereas immortality in this life might look like a good idea, I’d rather stick to the certainty of the promise made us by God. I also don’t really like the idea of being “downloaded”. Im a creature created by God, why would I want to downgrade myself to a creation of man?

I understand this sounds sci-fi to you. As a matter of fact numerous tv shows and movies have made this a theme. Such tv shows and movies include ‘Universal Soldier’ and ‘Sliders’. But this is not coming out of a script for a show or movie. This information I set before you comes from real news. Actual scientists. Yesterdays science-fiction is todays science-fact.

Florida Islam-Awareness Campaign Warns Of Classroom Bias

A new Islam-awareness campaign is being launched to tell parents and students that they simply shouldn’t believe the editorializing in the textbooks used in Florida’s schools.

Two organizations have worked together to produce a study on the controversy, and they are reporting that some of the nuggets that students in Florida’s schools can learn from their social studies textbooks include:

The Jewish Temple in Jerusalem contained “symbolically, the throne of their invisible God.”

Jesus was a “Palestinian Jew” who grew up in Galilee amidst “militant Zealots.”

It was “a few followers” of Jesus who “spread the story” about his resurrection.

While Islamic Arab warriors “rarely imposed their religion by force,” Christian monks “by contrast,” were busy converting “peoples of Central and Eastern Europe.”

Israel is to blame for terrorist attacks by Palestinians because they were “angered over the loss of their territory.”

When the Jewish state of Israel was born in 1948, the nation and its neighbors “went to war.”

It was because of the “loss of their territory to Israel” that “militant Palestinians responded with a policy of terrorist attacks.”

“The Quran permitted fair, defensive warfare as jihad, or ‘struggle in the way of God’” and this was how Muhammad and his successors expanded their territory.

And while Jesus is “believed” by followers to be the messiah, it’s a fact that “Gabriel continued to send revelations to Muhammad over 22 years.”

Read the real wording of the Declaration of Independence and the story behind America’s founding document in Rod Gragg’s “The Declaration of Independence.”

Martin Mawyer, president of Christian Action Network, whose group worked with Citizens for National Security on the study and its distribution, said, “We found some very skeptical phrasing meant to cast doubt on the historical accuracy of the Bible.” via Campaign warning parents of bias in classroom books.

A National Defense Act or how to undermine the US Constitution?

A National Defense Act or how to undermine the US Constitution?

Dr. Aref Assaf/NJ Voices 12/09/2011 6:55 AM

Is America the land of the free or the land of fear? Theslow erosion of our fundamental human and civil rights has reached its summit,and the consequences should worry us all.

The United States Senate has just passed a resolution thatas currently drafted, gives authority to the US military to indefinitely detainpersons, even American citizens arrested on American soil or overseas withoutcharge or trial. In other words, the federal government has the ability toopenly detain American citizens, here or overseas, for their entire liveswithout so much as a single charge -denying US citizens their Article IIIrights to a jury trial. All it needs to do is declare you a terrorist- no proofneeded and due process observed.

Tucked inconspicuously in the 682 pagesof the, NationalDefense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA), the Bill under thetitle ‘Detainee Matters’ in section 1031 and 1032, Congress has essentiallygiven the Department of Defense the explicit power to take civilians intomilitary custody and to indefinitely detain people suspected of terrorismactivities with no charges or trial. People in Egypt, Tunisia, and Syria haveengaged in revolutions to replace these undemocratic and unjust practices.

No doubt, codifying indefinite military detention into lawis one of the most egregious developments since the passage of the PATRIOT Actin 2001. A close read of the relevant sections means that all control would betaken out of the hands of civilian-controlled judicial system, and placed intothe secretive and unaccountable domains of the American military. Are theSenators who signed onto the legislation calling for a military takeover of ourjustice system? Until now, the Department of Justice, the state and local lawenforcement agencies have had the primary responsibility and the appropriatetraining to enforce anti-terrorism laws within the United States. The NDAAwould, in the case of many civilian suspects, remove these entities from theprocess of investigation, arrest, criminal prosecution, and imprisonment andcede such powers over to the military.

Section 1031 of S. 1253 would be the first time in more than60 years that our so-called representatives in Washington would allowindefinite detention of American citizens, with no charges or trial withoutCongressional authorization. If there was a case where liberty has beenforsaken for temporary security as Ben Franklin so eloquently warned, this Billis a prime example.

The US Senate has thus acted to render irrelevant theessence of our legal and judicial foundation: habeas corpus. According to Article Iof the Constitution, it is a judicial mandate that requires that a prisoner bebrought before the court to determine whether the government has the right tocontinue detaining them. The individual being held or their representative canpetition the court for such a writ. The current Senate bill has in effectendorsed the notion that the government can do whatever it likes to any citizen,it merely suspects individuals of being involved in terrorism. And since theso-called war on terrorism is an open-ended war and knows no geographicaldemarcations, the entire framework of the constitution could disappear througha sinkhole. Do not be surprised when a terrorist attack is committed or is imminent,our government would authorize soldiers to break into our homes undeterred,round up any citizens the government deems suspicious, and deny them anyrecourse. We used   to condemn countriesfor engaging in these practices against their own citizens. And now here we are doing it in these UnitedStates.

The Senate bill would let the government lock up any citizenit says is a terrorist, without the burden of proving its case to anindependent judge, for the lifespan of a not-so clearly defined war. Andbecause the Senate used the bill that authorizes funding for the military asits vehicle for this dramatic constitutional claim, many Senators found an easyexcuse to vote for the bill. But even if the intent of the legislationwould leave the civil liberties of an overwhelming majority of Americansuntouched, the checks and balances are inadequate. Even if we accept supportiveanalysis of the two sections in full, we have to assume two things. First, thegovernment will never make a mistake and, second, the government will never exceedits power. These are not very tenable expectations, which is why the nation’s FoundingFathers were prudent not to consider them. Now, in section 1031(b) (2), I donot see the requirement for a civilian judge to issue a warrant. So it appearsthis legislation directly violates the Fourth Amendment of the Constitutionwith regard to those rights which are inalienable, according to the Declarationof Independence, and should be inviolate as your birthright as an Americancitizen. Also, despite the SixthAmendment’s guarantee of a right to trial, the Senate bill would let thegovernment lock up any citizen it swears is a terrorist, without the burden ofproving its case to an independent judge, and for the lifespan of an amorphouswar that conceivably will never end.

Is it lawful for the president to order any American to beheld indefinitely as a terrorist, without formal charges, evidence presented inopen court, a trial by jury, or a standard of “guilty beyond a reasonabledoubt”? The U.S. Senate has ruled this to be a valid power. The shame ofthe Senate is evident by the number of Senators who voted for the bill: Fortyeight Democrats and forty-four Republicans and one Independent. New Jersey’stwo Senators, Robert Menendez, and Frank Lautenberg voted for the bill and madeno public denouement of the unconstitutional sections.

It is worth noting that  Senior Department of Justice,Department of Defense, and former administration officials warn theseprovisions will be a severe blow to our national security efforts andcounterproductive to counter terrorism measures. Many Senators have soeloquently spoken against the sections in addition to strong statements fromleading civil rights organizations. Senator Al Franklin(D-MN) represent this view, he said, “I fear the detention provisions inthis bill forget the lessons we learned from the mistakes we made when weinterned thousands of innocent Japanese, Germans, and Italians, or when wedestroyed the lives of supposed communist sympathizers with nary a shred ofevidence of guilt.”

Fortunately, the Houseversion of the bill (H.R. 1540) does not include the troublesome language.But we fear that when the two bills are merged, these sections will remain.

Most importantly, President Obama has threatened to veto the bill if it containsthe problematic language. PresidentObama, citing serious legal and policy concerns, has threatened to veto thebill if the two provisions are not removed. In a recent memo to the Senate, theadministration asserted that, “applying this military custody requirementto individuals inside the United States, as some Members of Congress havesuggested is their intention, would raise serious and unsettled legal questionsand would be inconsistent with the fundamental American principle that ourmilitary does not patrol our streets.” It is time for the citizens tospeak up for their rights before they are gone..

Ending The Christian "Pacifist" Argument On Firearms

By Clayton E. Cramer & David B. Kopel

It is not uncommon, when concealed carry laws are debated before legislative bodies, for representatives of liberal organizations such as the National Council of Churches to show up and announce the “moral” opposition to concealed carry on behalf of “the religious community.” But reflexive hostility to the lawful use of force for legitimate defense is hardly the only moral position that may be held by a sincerely religious person.

The Book of Exodus specifically absolves a homeowner who kills a burglar.  The Sixth Commandment “Thou shalt not kill” refers to murder only, and does not prohibit the taking of life under any circumstances; notably, the law of Sinai specifically requires capital punishment for a large number of offenses.  A little bit earlier in the Bible, Abram, the father of the Hebrew nation, learns that his nephew Lot has been taken captive. Abram (later to be renamed “Abraham” by God) immediately called out his trained servants, set out on a rescue mission, found his nephew’s captors, attacked and routed, rescuing Lot. (Genesis 14). The resort to violence to rescue an innocent captive is presented as the morally appropriate choice.

Most gun prohibitionists who look to the Bible for support do not cite specific interdictions of weapons (there are none) but instead point to the general passages about peace and love, such as “Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also” (Matthew 5: 38-39); “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Matthew 5: 43); and “Do not repay anyone evil for evil.” (Romans 12: 17).

None of these exhortations take place in the context of an imminent threat to life. A slap on the cheek is a blow to pride, but not a threat to life. Reverend Anthony Winfield, author of a study of Biblical attitudes towards weapons, suggests that these verses command the faithful not to seek revenge for evil acts, and not to bear grudges against persons who have done them wrong. He points to the passage “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live in peace with everyone” (Romans 12: 18), as showing an awareness that in extreme situations, it might not be possible to live in peace.

Further evidence that the New Testament does not command universal pacifism is found in the missions of John the Baptist and Peter, both of whom preached to soldiers who converted. Neither John nor Peter demanded that the soldiers lay down their arms, or find another job. (Luke 3: 14; Acts 10: 22-48).

John did tell the soldiers “Don’t extort money, and don’t accuse people falsely,” just as he told tax collectors “Don’t collect any more than you are required to.” The plain implication is that being a soldier (or a tax collector) is not itself wrong, so long as the inherent power is not used for selfish purposes.

Of course most gun prohibitionists do not see anything wrong with soldiers carrying weapons and killing people if necessary. But if–as the New Testament strongly implies–it is possible to be a good soldier and a good Christian, then it is impossible to claim that the Gospel always forbids the use of violence, no matter what the purpose. The stories of the soldiers support Winfield’s thesis that the general Speace and love” passage are not blanket prohibitions on the use of force in all circumstances.

Is an approving attitude towards the bearing of arms confined to professional soldiers? Not at all. At the last supper, Jesus’ final instructions to the apostles begin: “When I sent you without purse, bag, or sandals, did you lack anything?”

“Nothing,” the apostles answer.

Jesus continues: “But now, if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.” He ends by observing “what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment.”

The apostles then announce, “Lord, behold, here are two swords,” and Jesus cuts them off: “That is enough.” (Luke 22: 36-38).

Even if the passage is read with absolute literalness, Jesus was not setting up a rule that every apostle must carry a sword (or a purse or a bag). For the eleven, two swords were “enough.”

More importantly, Jesus may not have been issuing an actual command that anybody carry swords, or purses, or bags. The broader, metaphorical point being made by Jesus was that the apostles would, after Jesus was gone, have to take care of their own worldly needs to some degree. The purse (generally used for money), the bag (generally used for clothing and food), and the sword (generally used for protection against the robbers who preyed on travelers, including missionaries, in the open country between towns) are all examples of tools used to take care of such needs. When the apostles took Jesus literally, and started showing him their swords, Jesus, frustrated that they missed the metaphor, ended the discussion. The metaphorical interpretation is supported by scholarly analysis, and seems to best account for the entire conversation.

Even when reduced to metaphor, however, the passage still contradicts the rigid pacifist viewpoint. In the metaphor, the sword, like the purse or the bag, is treated as an ordinary item for any person to carry. If weapons and defensive violence were illegitimate under all circumstances, Jesus would not have instructed the apostles to carry swords, even in metaphor, any more than Jesus would have created metaphors suggesting that people carry demonic statues for protection, or that they metaphorically rape, rob, and murder.

A few hours after the final instructions to the apostles, when soldiers arrived to arrest Jesus, and Peter sliced off the ear of one of their leaders, Jesus healed the ear. He then said “No more of this” (Luke 22: 49-51) or “Put your sword away” (John 18: 10) or “Put your sword back in its place, for all who draw the sword will die by the sword” (Matthew 26: 52). (The quotation is sometimes rendered as “He who lives by the sword will die by the sword.”) [129]

Jesus then rebuked the soldiers for effecting the arrests with clubs and swords, for Jesus was “not leading a rebellion.” The most immediate meaning of these passages is that Jesus was preventing interference with God’s plan for the arrest and trial. Additionally, Jesus was instructing the apostles not to begin an armed revolt against the local dictatorship or the Roman imperialists. Jesus had already refused the Zealots’ urging to lead a war of national liberation.

Do the passages also suggest a general prohibition against drawing swords (or other weapons) for defense? The versions of the story recounted in Luke and John do not, but the version in Matthew could be so read.

If Matthew is analyzed along the lines of “He who lives by the sword will die by the sword,” the passage is an admonition that a person who centers his life on violence (such as a gang member) will likely perish. On the other hand, a translation of “all who draw the sword will die by the sword” could be read as a general rule against armed violence in any situation.

The best way to understand the Bible, most theologians would concur, is not to look at passages in isolation, but instead to carefully study passages in the context of the rest of the Bible. If the single line in Matthew were to be read to indicate that to draw the sword is always wrong, then it would be difficult to account for the other passages which suggest that drawing a sword as a soldier (or carrying a sword as an apostle) is not illegitimate. Looking at the passage of Matthew in the context of the rest of the Bible would, therefore, look to the passage as a warning against violence as a way of life, rather than as a flat-out ban on defensive violence in all situations.

A 1994 document produced by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace states:

In a world marked by evil and sin, the right of legitimate defense by armed means exists. This right can become a serious duty for those who are responsible for the lives of others, for the common good of the family or of the civil community.

The Catholic Church recognizes people as saints because (among other reasons), the lives of saints are considered to worthy of study and emulation. February 27 is the feast day of Saint Gabriel Possenti. According to The One Year Book of Saints, as a young man in 19th-century Italy, Francesco Possenti was known as the best dresser in town, as a “superb horseman,” and as “an excellent marksman.” The young man was also a consummate partygoer, who was engaged to two women at the same time. Twice during school he had fallen desperately ill, promised to give his life to God if he recovered, and then forgotten his promise. One day at church, Possenti saw a banner of Mary. He felt that her eyes looked directly at him, and he heard the words “Keep your promise.”

Possenti immediately joined an order of monks, taking the name Brother Gabriel. The main incident for which Saint Gabriel Possenti is remembered was this:

One a summer day a little over a hundred years ago, a slim figure in a black cassock [Possenti] stood facing a gang of mercenaries in a small town in Piedmont, Italy. He had just disarmed one of the soldiers who was attacking a young girl, had faced the rest of the band fearlessly, then drove them all out of the village at the point of a gun….

[W]hen Garibaldi’s mercenaries swept down through Italy ravaging villages, Brother Gabriel showed the kind of man he was by confronting them, astonishing them with his marksmanship, and saving the small village where his monastery was located.

Saint Gabriel Possenti’s “astonishing marksmanship” was displayed after he had just disarmed the soldier. The mercenaries’ leader told Possenti that it would take more than just one monk with a handgun to make the mercenaries leave town. The saint pointed out to the mercenaries a lizard which was running across the road. Possenti shot the lizard right through the head, at which point the mercenaries decided that discretion was the better part of valor; they obeyed Possenti’s orders to extinguish the fires they had started and to return the property they had stolen. They then fled the village, never to be heard from again.

Jewish law comes to the same conclusion as the Vatican Pontifical Council: “If someone comes to kill you, rise up and kill him first,” commands the Talmud.  Bystanders are likewise required to kill persons who attempting rape.  While there is a duty to self-defense, the duty to defend others is seen as prior.

The view that forcible resistance to evil attack is itself evil has serious implications: Patrick Henry and the other founding fathers were wrong to urge armed resistance to the British Redcoats; the Jews who led the Warsaw Ghetto revolt against Hitler were immoral; Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims would have been wrong to use a weapon to protect themselves; Saint Gabriel Possenti was a paragon of evil; Abraham should not have rescued his kidnapped nephew; and police officers who fire their guns to protect innocent people are sinful.

Consider the situation of a mother in a rough Los Angeles neighborhood, moments after an escaped psychopathic murderer has broken into her house. The woman has good reason to fear that the intruder is about to slaughter her three children. If she does not shoot him with her .38 special, the children will be dead before the police will arrive. Is the woman’s moral obligation to murmur “violence engenders violence,” and keep her handgun in the drawer while her children die? Or is the mother’s moral duty to save her children, and shoot the intruder?

The view that life is a gift from God, and that permitting the wanton destruction of one’s own life (or the life of a person under one’s care) amounts to hubris is hardly new. As a 1747 sermon in Philadelphia put it:

He that suffers his life to be taken from him by one that hath no authority for that purpose, when he might preserve it by defense, incurs the Guilt of self murder since God hath enjoined him to seek the continuance of his life, and Nature itself teaches every creature to defend itself. 
 

Whatever their disagreements on other matters, the natural rights philosophers who provided the intellectual foundation of the American Revolution saw self-defense as “the primary law of nature,” from which many other legal principles could be deduced.

As the great Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis wrote: “We shall have lost something vital and beyond price on the day when the state denies us the right to resort to force…”

Leading criminal law scholars have emphasized a different, less philosophical, point: that victims protect the entire community when they kill a dangerous criminal rather than leaving him free to prey on others. To theorists such as Bishop, Stephens and Pollock “Sudden and strong resistance to unrighteous attack is not merely a thing to be tolerated …as a necessary evil [but is] a just and perfect” right. A good citizen attacked has “a moral duty” to use all force necessary to apprehend or otherwise incapacitate criminals rather than to submit or retreat.

Underlying the assertion that use of force to defend innocent life is immoral is the presumption that persons who use such force are “selfish.” To the extent that social science can shed any light on this presumption, the presumption turns out to be exactly backwards. A study of “Good Samaritans” who came to aid of victims of violent crime found that 81% “own guns and some carry them in their cars. They are familiar with violence, feel competent to handle it, and don’t believe they will be hurt if they get involved.”  Are these people inferior moral beings who “engender violence”?

In any case, the claim that as a moral or practical matter a crime victim should rely on the government for protection can be raised only if the government has an obligation to protect the victim. And quite clearly under American law, the government has no such obligation.

OWS: Are they Pagan?

OWS Pagan?

Its been stated numerous times that there is “religion” or “spirituality” at OWS. In the next breathe we here OWS isnt about religion. A second later they are. Confusing, right?

What upsets me is people have forgotten God, or atleast have been delusioned on a massive level. In seeking truth and determining what they believe, have OWS gone pagan?

It has been stated they have a “sacred space” tent at the encampments where people can worship their gods of their respective faiths. It has also been stated that a Golden Calf is making its rounds of all the OWS encampments. Upon it first arriving a senior minister of a presbyterian church lead in the worship of this calf.

Lets take a look at Exodus for a moment.

Exodus 32:1-14 KJV
 1And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

 2And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.

 3And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.

 4And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

 5And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD.

 6And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.

 7And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

 8They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

 9And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

 10Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.

 11And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

 12Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.

 13Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.

 14And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.

So you see, history seems to be repeating itself. Upset with God and the fact He has not returned yet to Earth, people are seeking a new god to put their faith.

Now lets take a look at what the minister said herself.

Quoted from a Senior Minister
“We put it [the golden calf] on our altar, and then carried it down to Wall Street on Sunday to feature it in our multifaith worship service.”

“When the original calf arrived in our empty sanctuary on Saturday night, about a dozen of us gathered to greet it.  The artist was there as well to humbly tell us how he built it.  We were moved to pray, which I have to admit is not something we do that often on Saturday nights.”

– Donna Schaper,  Senior Minister, Judson Memorial Church (A senior minister that hardly prays unless it is Sunday?  Perfect.)

Donna Schaper should be ashamed of herself. She is no Christian. Based on this worshipping of the Golden Calf, lead by a minister who should know better, OWS seems to be pagan. Not spiritual. For if they were spiritual they would know Truth and worship God, not a paper mache golden calf.

Two articles concerning OWS and the golden calf

OWS and the Golden Calf

When I was a kid learning the story of Moses and the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt, one part of the story was particularly remarkable to me.

A short 45 days after their miraculous liberation from bondage, witnessing the Lord delivering plagues on their overlords, and God parting the waters to allow them to escape, the Israelites seemed to forget everything that just happened.  At the foot of Mt. Sinai the people decided that it was a golden calf that had actually liberated them from Egypt, not the Lord.

In less than 2 months, they had turned their back on their deliverer.  The ingratitude, and more importantly the astounding arrogance seemed to me to be impossible.  People could not be that stupid, could they?

Along came OWS, and I realized that not only could people be that stupid, arrogant and ungrateful, but that it happens more often than you would expect.

All one needs to do is look at a photo, any photo at all, of the OWS mob to witness their equal measure of arrogance and ingratitude.

How many of the people in these camps of whiners and ingrates are aware of how truly blessed they are?  It is clear they do not appreciate what they have been blessed with, but focus only on what they want.

For example, the poverty level for a family of 4 in the US is $22,350, according to the US Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS). (Source)

That poverty level, $22,350, is more than the per capita GDP of 166 of 215 countries in the world.  78% of the planet, or more, live on less than those in the US at the poverty line.  Worse yet, most live on less than HALF of that $22k per year (144 of 215 nations).  These are not even small backwaters.  The list of 144 includes Russia, Poland, Mexico, Brazil, and Chile among others you have heard of.  (Source: UN June 2011 Indicators on income and economic activity).

Those in poverty in the US have more money (and stuff) than typical people in most of the rest of the world

While stats like the ones above are not “sexy” and easy to dismiss or ignore, personal observation is not.  We live in a really wealthy nation by any standard you wish to apply.  Even people living in poverty in the US are materially blessed beyond measure.

According to various US Government reports, most people at or below the poverty line likely have:

air conditioning
more living space in their home than AVERAGE residents of most major world cities
one or more color TV’s with cable or satellite service
a home stereo system
an automobile
a DVD player
a cellphone.
Almost none are in imminent danger of starvation or malnourished.  Almost all have indoor plumbing, multiple sets of clothing and footwear, and almost half actually own their own home.

So here we have a movement that complains that the rich are the problem.  They seek vengeance against the 1%.

Has even one of them stopped to think that almost the entire rest of the planet looks at THEM as part of the 1%?

These glittering jewels of colossal ignorance have the chutzpah to think they are somehow abused, neglected, and deprived?

They will tell you their tales of poverty and abuse with a post on Facebook or YouTube from their Apple iPad or MacBook Pro over their wireless internet card from Verizon while dressed in North Face winter gear, Lands End boots, Ray-Ban sunglasses, and name brand underwear (for females probably Pink by Victoria’s Secret, and Hanes for the men).

While they post about their struggles, they are sipping a half caf double mocha latte from Starbucks.  They are also probably wearing some gold jewelry worth more than most of people of the world earn in a year, many encrusted with precious gems.  Most have stomachs full from their 3rd or 4th meal of the day, and they may even be technically obese.  Oh, and they just got their hair styled and colored last week.

Those poor souls.  I think I better understand their plight now.  The people of Bangladesh must look upon these OWS masses and weep over their sad living conditions.  Well, that is if the people of Bangladesh had electricity, a TV and satellite service.

And they wonder why people like me look at them and see nothing but spoiled brats throwing a tantrum?

Time for OWS to build their golden calf.  Like the Children of Israel thousands of years before them, OWS has forgotten or ignored every blessing bestowed on them and are now making colossal fools of themselves.

Wait…what’s that you say?  Oh no.  They already did build a golden calf.    They worshiped before it, too.

“We put it [the golden calf] on our altar, and then carried it down to Wall Street on Sunday to feature it in our multifaith worship service.”

“When the original calf arrived in our empty sanctuary on Saturday night, about a dozen of us gathered to greet it.  The artist was there as well to humbly tell us how he built it.  We were moved to pray, which I have to admit is not something we do that often on Saturday nights.”

– Donna Schaper,  Senior Minister, Judson Memorial Church (Emphasis added, irony not.  A senior minister that hardly prays unless it is Sunday?  Perfect.)

The rest of us probably should get ready to wander the desert for 40 years until our ranks are purged of these ungrateful tantrum throwing overgrown children.  That was what happened the last time around.

America, get your hiking boots and sunscreen ready.  It’s gonna be a looooong walk.

The LORD’s anger burned against Israel and he made them wander in the desert forty years, until the whole generation of those who had done evil in his sight was gone.  – Numbers 32:13

Occupy Wall Street, The Golden Calf And The New Idolatry
By Donna Schaper

When the paper Mache golden calf arrived at the church, it looked ever so much like the Wall Street Bull. I am not secretly cursing. The calf animal looked like a bull animal. Our choir director and one of our ministers carried it on their shoulders, from its rented van up Thompson Street, from Houston Street, into Judson Memorial Church around 8 p.m. on Saturday night. What surprised these two religious soldiers was how many people in the open bars recognized it immediately, “Why, that is the golden calf. You know, from the bible.”
James Salt of Catholics United, who was on a spiritual retreat the weekend before, made the calf. He built and designed it within three days. Why? He was inspired by the actions of Occupy Wall Street and wanted to lend spiritual and biblical support. Faith in Public Life rented the van and brought it into town. We put it on our altar, and then carried it down to Wall Street on Sunday to feature it in our multifaith worship service. We are in the process of reproducing the calf as I write. Why? The Calf has returned to D.C. for the weekend’s protests there.
When the original calf arrived in our empty sanctuary on Saturday night, about a dozen of us gathered to greet it. The artist was there as well to humbly tell us how he built it. We were moved to pray, which I have to admit is not something we do that often on Saturday nights. We took turns reading Exodus 32, verse by verse. We knew where to find the original golden calf story but we had rarely heard it in the context of paper mache, built into fifty pounds of calf. We started with verse one, how the Exodus people were disappointed with the same Moses who had taken them out of the wilderness. Then Aaron was summoned to leadership. Aaron plotted an overthrow of Moses by building a new altar, a golden calf, made from the earrings of the people. (Some biblical scholars argue that the women refused their jewelry. Who knows?) The people had a big expensive party in front of their handmade idol. Then Moses came back and destroyed the calf, begged God to repent of God’s wrath against the people for their idolatry. Then the people repented. And God promised not to destroy them. We remain in prayer, as the calf of Wall Street is not yet in mothballs.
On Sunday, four strong men carried the calf on their shoulders, looking more like pallbearers in a street funeral than anything else. It was hot. They had yellow sponges to cushion the calf’s blow to their shoulders. How they walked the two miles with the 50-pound paper Mache calf aloft is a matter of physics. But why they did it is a matter of the spirit. They suited up so reporters would not dare call them hippies. (There is nothing wrong with hippies except that people use them to stay distant from the Occupation Wall Street’s general and universal message.) The pallbearers wanted to look like the Wall Street they protested. They marched and carried because they know what idolatry is. It is the replacement of a false God for a better one. Note I did not say true one. We all know how much we have internalized capitalism. We all know our distance from the truth. The 99% don’t have an enemy in the 1% so much as a need to bring money in line with human values. Our multifaith service wanted to be sure not to resemble the punishmentalists or those who are absurdly sure about the divine or who like to find someone to blame for what has gone wrong. We went for the basics of our many faiths, the golden rule which is so distanced from and by the golden calf. “Do unto those downstream from you what you would have those upstream from you do to you.” This rule applies to hippies, Republicans, church members, ministers, and financiers.
We all know how little Sabbath we keep, how frequently we let other people tell us our value, our place, our position. We all know how much we have let Wall Street control the conversation, alerting us that the market is “up” today or the market is “down.” We brought the calf to Wall Street to confess our allegiance to false Gods and to announce that something was dying for us. That death is our own belief in the sacred calf of the Wall Street picture of the universe. The “mike check” was just the beginning of a new conversation, between and among people, about what is really important. What is important is people owning our own times, our own tongues, our own labor, our own worth. What is dead is Wall Street’s control of the conversation and us.

Real Americans must stand against Muslim Brotherhood, radical Islam and Sharia Law

Real Americans must stand against Muslim Brotherhood, radical Islam and Sharia Law

– Dr. Laurie Roth  Wednesday, October 26, 2011

The insertion of radical Islam,  largely Muslim Brotherhood is happening throughout the Middle East and in parts of Africa.  The latest method of intrusion and radical Islamic take over is with ‘Arab Spring’.  Those Islamics marching for democracy were simply used and muted by the Muslim Brotherhood’s plans for total take over. 

Things are going as planned and Obama and his handlers couldn’t be happier.  Global controls, regulations and rules combined with encroaching Fundamentalist Islam is the double barrel shot gun that threatens to take down America,  Israel and the West.  Right now,  it is attempting to transform the Middle East into an Islamic radical,  Muslim Brotherhood zone. 

I recently interviewed Rev. Lainie Dowell, (voiceink.blogspot.com) an author and political activist who has studied in depth Barack Obama, Islam and the African nations push to create the United States of Africa.  She said from her research that this had been going on since the 1960s and she believed that Barack Obama wanted to be the head of this after he destroyed America.  Kadafi,  who we assassinated recently was the known pick to run this 55-state confederation and emerging super power.

Interestingly,  Sher Zieve,  another hard hitting commentator also told me that she had seen an interview on You Tube with Van Jones,  talking to school kids.  When asked by a child what Obama would do after he was done being President,  Van Jones said Obama might rule the world.  This was quickly scrubbed but not before many heard those words from his own lips.  So…..is America simply a stepping stone to worldwide control? 

What have we seen from Obama
It is not a paranoid ‘tin helmet’ or racist moment that I have noticed Obama’s   submission and devotion to Islam.  Almost immediately when getting into office Obama gave Islamic radical and terrorist group Hamas over 900 million dollars.  We saw Obama’s first trip to Saudi Arabia,  where he bowed down low to the Saudi King.  We then saw Obama stand against Israel and for Turkey when Israeli commandos confronted the Turkish armada taking supplies to the Gaza.  Israel had intelligence that the Turkish ships weren’t just delivering food and medicine but also weapons and potential terrorists.  They were right.  Terrorists on their list and weapons were discovered yet the sold out news and Obama looked the other way as they rebuked Israel….again. 

The attacks and insults have continued against Israel as the kiss up to Islam has grown.  We saw Hillary and Biden practically get their knickers in a twist when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu planned to go ahead and build homes on their own sovereign property.  These weren’t remote ‘settlements’  as the media and Obama manipulated,  but 5 minutes from downtown Jerusalem.  There was nothing ridiculous, extreme,  or remote about their building projects.  It was simple anti Semitism and Islamic controls that couldn’t possibly have this.  Obama played it perfectly… for a Muslim that is.

Just when the insults against Israel about blew me down, it got even more arrogant.  Obama started pressuring Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to go back to the 1967 borders.  That was not just absurd of Obama but also would expose Israel to deadly attacks and make them indefensible.  Thankfully,  Israel said no thank you.

Bringing it all the way home with Arab Spring, Libya,  Egypt
What was touted by Obama as an American duty to defend desperate freedom fighters in Libya,  transformed quickly into an illegal war,  breaching the 1973 war powers act.  Obama bypassed our congress,  bowed down to the UN and started spending billions while putting our troops in harms way.  Soon we learned the freedom fighters were linked with al quaeda,  so it was in large part,  bad guys fighting bad guys.  Kadafi had not been attacking America, or our interests.  We didn’t even get oil from him,  so why in God’s green earth did Obama put us there?  I think it was to establish more rigid Muslim controls world wide.  He knew once Kadafi was gone,  rigid sharia would rule and it has.  Oh….but first we had to get rid of Kadafi, so we found him and assassinated him. 

Interestingly,  from Rev. Lainie Dowell’s research on the emerging United States of Africa,  she found that Kadafi was to be the first President of this new super power,  now he is gone.  Gee…..isn’t it convenient that Kadafi is gone.  I wonder who might end up being the President of the United States of Africa now?????

Obama has quickly supported the Muslim Brotherhood,  why?

Just as soon as Egypt and President Hosni Mubarak’s rule was being challenged by protestors as Arab Spring unfolded,  Obama immediately backed the Muslim Brotherhood which had been circling their radical wagons to control what was moderate Egypt.  Now the Muslim Brotherhood has taken over,  dozens of Coptic Christians are being threatened and murdered,  Christian churches are being burned to the ground and Sharia controls are growing.  Oh yes,  threats to Israel.

Through out the Middle East,  the financed and organized Muslim Brotherhood is taking over,  using the planned ‘Arab Spring’  to push their dominating Islamic force forward.  This whole thing was long ago planned.

According to Jihad Watch, President Obama’s own father,  Barack Obama senior was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood for 30 years.  Bringing it home even further,  Obama has at least 3 high level Muslim Brotherhood members working for him.  One is a key speech writer for Obama and another,  Azizah al-Hibri heads the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom.

With all this emphasis on come together,  Muslim brotherhood,  Arab spring democracy values,  I just had to review what Muslim Brotherhood stood for and their beliefs.

Muslim Brotherhood in a snapshot
They were started by Hassan al – Banna in 1928 after the collapse of the Ottman Empire.  They oppose secular behaviors in Islamic nations,  huge supporters of strict Sharia law.  Their motto: “Allah is our objective.  The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law.  Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

They sanction, even demand jihad from their followers.  In 2004 a fatwa was put forth by Sheikh Yousef Al-Quradhawi saying it was the obligation of all Muslims to abduct and kill U.S. citizens in Iraq.

They are known to work in all schools,  colleges,  run for office and infiltrate themselves into Government.  Well,  they are certainly doing well aren’t they?  They are working for our President in influential positions.

Counter-Intelligence expert, Prof. Clare Lopez stated that Islamist allied operatives appointed by Obama are undermining U.S. security policy.  This is aimed at co-opting America’s foreign policy in the Middle East.

From 1928 on the Muslim Brotherhood has formed and financed many Islamic terror groups including al Qaeda.  Their dream is a world wide caliphate. 

Obama is a useful pawn playing right into their hands.  Our Republic is in danger.  There should be zero Islamics working in high level positions anywhere near the President and authority because if they are traditionally Islamic they must submit first to Sharia law and the Qur’an,  not the constitution.  That isn’t Islamaphobia or persecution.  That is a fact. It should even be more of a no brainer for a U.S. President to not even consider hiring someone who is a member of an Islamic terrorist group like Muslim Brother.  Apparently,  like Father like son.

The Truth about "Occupy" and Mormonism

This is a short re-iteration of the podcast. It is not as in-depth and it is greatly recommened you listen to the podcast for the entirety of these two topics. If you wish to dispute any views with Rev. Dr. Red, feel free to email or call us. We will setup a time when you can discuss this with him. It will be recorded and posted as a follow-up to the podcast for informational purposes.
Up first is the article. Second is the speech. Third is a short list of Mormon beliefs as quoted from their scriptures. And finally, I gave two links to resources used in the study for this article and the speech.

The Truth About Occupy and Mormonism
by Reverend Dr. Red Conrad, D.D.

Lately two topics have been taking up alot of space and time by the mainstream media, underground media, upcoming journalists, and bloggers. A few individuals and news agencies have gone as far as turning this into a debate amongst themselves they are being paid to force us watch rather than cover real news or atleast spew the facts about these topics. Since so many people seem to be so concerned about being politically correct rather than spiritually correct, i will fill in the blanks here. Mainstream media is spewing a whole lot of half-truths and all lies. I refuse to condemn Gods children, Christs brethren, to damnation along with myself because im more concerned with political correctness than spiritual correctness. Im warning now, what i have to say is politically incorrect, spiritually correct, may be offensive to liberals, American youth, and all the useful idiots out there. If you wish not to be offended, leave my presence now.

First up is this “Occupy” movement. Im just as angry with the corporations as the next. But siding with the government is not the answer. The big corporations own the government. Your man Obama was put in office by corporations donations of millions of dollars. Why? He is one of them. His policies are helping the corporations get rich off of our poverty. If your against big corporations why are you wearing name-brand clothing, excepting donations and food and supplies; from the very corporations you are against? The majority of these occupiers are 17-23 yrs old. They never had a job, never had to experience any hardship or responsibility whatsoever, and now they are demanding everything for free and wages of $20/hr to do absolutely nothing. And you morons are supporting them? How about they go out and look for work, pounding the pavement, start from the bottom and work there way to the top like the rest of us? How about that? There once was a time where you left high school and were considered an adult; you went out and did whatever job came your way; supported your family; and honestly earned your money with your sweat. And didnt complain about it.

What do we have today? A bunch of 19-23yr olds that know no responsibility, have their parents covering all their bills, no will to actually work for success, and are still considered to be children. What has happened to America?

Did you know the “occupy” movement was organized and is being funded by such entities as the Communist Party, MoveOn.org, SEIU, CAIR, ACORN, Democrat Party, among others? The Workers World Party is paying them $350-$650 per week for being there. This movement is in no way American. It is funded by Marxists and the Muslim Brotherhood. They have numerous occupations across America, and approximately 70 in other nations. More popping up everyday. This same so-called American movement was first in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Iraq. Why would an American movement not originate in America? Do you recall what happen to those nations in the mideast where “occupy” was successful, and now happening here? All of our Allies and those in power that protected Christians and Jews in the region were removed from power. Afghanistan cleansed itself of all Christians. Egypt is now cleansing themselves of all Christians. Tunisia, cleansed themselves of all Jews and Christians. Iraq is cleansing themselves of all Christians. Need i go on? They want a 100% Muslim world. Right now under Assad, Syrian Christians are protected. “Occupy” wins in Syria, death to all Christians. That is a population of 1.8 million men, women, and children that will lose their lives by be-heading if Assad is successfully removed by “occupy”.

Looking at “occupy” track record and those backing them, they are a very real threat to Western civilization. If “occupy” continues to grow and succeeds in their demands, we will have Obama permanently. Were you aware Obama is a member of and has a leadership position in the Muslim Brotherhood? If “occupy” is not stopped, if “occupy” succeeds here in America; i assure you life as we know it is over. Jews and Christians will begin being tortured and killed same as they are in the mid-east. In the “occupy” America, the U.S. Constitution will no longer hold ground as the U.S. of A. will be no longer.
Tea Parties and other Patriot organizations must infiltrate and hijack the “occupy” movement in America lest we watch America’s death right before our eyes.

Now, as far as Mormonism is concerned i have the following facts to share with you.
Mormons believe God was first man and ascended to godhood after seeking it first; and that all man can become a god. Mormons believe God has a wife, therefore no need for a “virgin birth”. Mormons believe in death they will become God. Mormons have four holy books: The Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price; of which the Bible is less revered as it is believed to be erred and inacurrate. Mormons believe the deed of Adam and Eve was not a sin, but a blessing.
If you google Mormonism and read there books, there is plenty more fallacies that could be mentioned. But i believe just going by what was mentioned thus far shows mormonism is not Christian, therefore being a cult of satan designed to draw Christians from God. Mormonism is not Christianity; A mormon is not a Christian. They claim to follow Jesus Christ, but so do the Muslims who say Jesus Christ is not the son of God. In the Bible, we are warned of false Christ’s. The Jesus Christ of Mormonism and Islam are two of these false Christs we have been fore-warned about.

Im not telling you what to or not to believe. Dont take my word for it. Look it up yourself.

The following is an 86min. speech that encompasses this article, only more in-depth.
http://cinch.fm/cinchplayerext.swf

The following is what Mormons believe:
The Church has 4 Standard Works that are authoritative:  The Bible (in so far as it is translated correctly), the Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price.  Speeches and writings of the current president of the church are also authoritative.  The Bible is far below the other standard Works because it is full of errors (wherever it disagrees with Mormon doctrine).
There are many Gods. Brigham Young-Journal of Discourses 7:333 “How many Gods there are, I do not know.  But there never was a time when there were not Gods.
God the Father is an exalted man (a man who has progressed to godhood) with a body of flesh and bones. 
Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, 1973 ed., p. 346 – “God himself was once as we are now, and is an exalted man…I say, if you were to see him today, you would see him like a man in a form-like yourselves in all the person, image, and very form as a man.”
D & C 130:22  “The Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s; the Son also.”
God the Father became a God after learning truth, aggressively pursuing godhood, and being obedient to the laws of the gospel.
God the Father has a wife, through whom he procreates spirit children.
“Implicit in the Christian verity that all men are the spirit children of an Eternal Father is the usually unspoken truth that they are also the offspring of an Eternal Mother.  An exalted and glorified Man of Holiness (Moses 6:57) could not be a Father unless a Woman of like glory, perfection, and holiness was associated with him as a Mother” (Mormon Doctrine, 1977 ed., p. 516)
God is not a uniquely eternal being.  All spirit is self-existent matter and is eternal (without beginning or end).  Such “matter (called intelligences) sometimes becomes organized into a spirit being through birth to celestial parents.  Then that spirit is born through human parents on earth.  Like all people, God took this course and eventually reached Godhood.
God would stop being God if intelligences stopped supporting him as God.
(D&C 93:29, 33; Abraham 3:18-23; Mormon Doctrine, 1977 ed. p. 751)
Man was also in the beginning with God.  Intelligence, or the light of truth, was not created or made, neither indeed can be”  (D&C 93:29)
Life, intelligence, mind, the ‘light of truth’ , or whatever name one gives to the center of the personality of man, is an uncreated, eternally existent, indestructible entity…In the first stage, man was an eternally existent being termed an intelligence…The next realm where man dwelt was the spirit world….eternally-existing intelligences were clothed with spirit bodies…numerous sons and daughters were begotten and born of heavenly parents into that eternal family in the spirit world” (The Gospel Through the ages, pp.126-127)
“…these spirit children were organized, possessing divine, eternal, and godlike attributes, inherited from their Heavenly Father and Mother.  There in the spirit world they were reared to maturity, becoming grown spirit men and women prior to coming upon this earth” (The Gospel Through the Ages, p. 127).
“Jesus is man’s spiritual brother.  We dwelt with Him in the spirit world as members of that large society of eternal intelligences, which included our Heavenly Parents and all the personages who have become mortal beings upon this earth or who ever shall come here to dwell…Jesus was the ‘firstborn,’ and so He is our eldest brother” (Ibid., p.21)
Death and sin came through the fall of Adam and Eve.  But their deed was not actually a “sin.”  It was really a blessing because it enabled man to continue progressing on toward eternal life.  “They (the Christian world) have been long taught that Adam and Eve were great transgressors…We, the children of Adam….should rejoice with them, that through their fall and the atonement of Jesus Christ, the way of eternal life has been opened up to us” (Articles of Faith, p. 476)
Christ’s death on the cross (the atonement) canceled the penalty of death imposed on ALL men through Adam’s sin, thereby ensuring that all men would be redeemed – resurrected and given immortality (the reuniting of spirit with body)-as a gift.
“If there had been no atonement, temporal death would have remained forever, and there never would have remained forever, and there never would have been a resurrection.  The body would have remained forever in the grave” (Mormon Doctrine, 1977 ed., p.63)
“Redemption from death, through the sufferings of Christ, is for all men, both the righteous and the wicked” (Ibid., p. 65)
“Immortality is a free gift which comes by grace alone without works on man’s part” (Ibid., p. 377)

Are We Truly Free?

Are We Truly Free?
By Reverend Dr. Red Conrad, D.D.

Many people claim that we are free. That we have certain rights protected by the U.S. Constitution. But the vast majority has no idea what rights are protected or where they are protected in the Constitution. Due to this fact many people are completely oblivious to the fact that we are no longer the “Land of the Free” but morphing into the “Land of the Slaves”. Below are few amendments, and examples of infringement.

The first amendment is as follows:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

There are many homes and businesses that are not allowed to put a cross on their property. There are many establishments that do not permit its employees to wear a cross that is visible to others. Schools, universities, and now homes are not allowed to hold public prayers. Prayer has been banned in our military. We cannot assemble without first obtaining a permit. In certain areas, if a permit is granted, you may only assemble in whats called a “free speech zone”. Many true journalists are forced to work for “underground” media companies, risking problems with the law, due to the fact mainstream press is only permitted to spew statist propaganda authorized by the government.

The second amendment is as follows:
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Many militias, lest they are run by the government, are diffused and disarmed. The government does this by telling Americans it is for their safety. Usually calling such militias as, or having ties to, racist, terrorist, or simply un-American and dangerous to the community. Many Americans are being disarmed under the lie that the more who own weapons, the more crimes will be committed. What they dont tell you: if all Americans owned weapons, crime will decrease due to the fact that the criminal will not know who will fire on him/her and who will not. In some cases, they go as far as refusing medical care if you own a firearm or refuse to say one way or the other.

The fourth amendment is as follows:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

In numerous states law enforcement completely ignores this right. A marine in Arizona was killed in a un-warranted, full S.W.A.T., break-in of his home. Businesses have been raided by the police and military, without warrants and had items removed. Homes in entire neighborhoods have been raided by the National Guard and legally owned weapons removed from the homes. The TSA has been searching, and at times strip searching, everyone of all ages. Some as young as 2yrs to as old as 93yrs in a wheelchair.

As surprising as it is, all mentions above occured here in America. The above are only a few examples. Choose any topic and google it. The results will shock you. If you question the government, they will tell you the authority to do so is in the ‘Patriot Act’. People who took an oath to uphold the Constitution are instead deciding to uphold the un-constitutional ‘Patriot Act’ and run the U.S. Constitution through the shredder.

The government has been infringing on our freedoms in a very clever way. Stop educating about America, the Constitution and replace it with indoctrination. Promote a sense of insecurity via terrorism, racism, wars. Escalate this feeling of insecurity slowly over a few decades as the press is taken over, now insuring all mainstream media is promoting propaganda. Tell the people in order to be safe, you must allow random searches and increased police presence. Tell the people crime can be stopped, but you must handover all privately owned weapons. If the people do not know their rights, they will not miss their rights. Its pure genius. And American people as a whole is that stupid.

Now that most of it is underway, they are speeding things up. Christianity and Judaism in America will continue to see a rise in persecution. Why? Because they are the religions of light. True Judeo-Christianity, in its most spiritually natural form, can shed light into the darkness encompassing America and the world. You begin shedding light into dark, you will now be able to see what you could not see before. The elite knows this, therefore wishes to run Christianity and Judaism out so they can bring in the dark with little, if any, resistance.

Many religious establishments are being attacked. A couple in California who holds a Bible study once a week in their home are being ordered to stop. Rev. Terry Jones of Dove World Outreach Center is losing his property in Gainesville, Florida. Many of my online accounts are either blocked entirely or give me limited access. Churches all around the country are being told what they can and cannot say or face imprisonment for breaking the laws set forth in the 501(c)3 incorporation laws. A pastor i know personally who also operates an online ministry has had his website shutdown. Schools will not allow any type of Christian dress or literature on the premises.

Yet Islam can freely function as they please, when they please, how they please. The Constitution is meant to protect ALL American citizens, not just the muslims, whom did not exist in America at her liberation from England.

If you feel we are free, you are a fool. Freedom is just that, freedom. Limititations on freedom is no longer freedom. I ask you not to take my word for it, but do your own research. If you wish to call yourself free, you must first be free. To not fight against tyranny is to side with the oppressors.

Study the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independance. If you have an Android or iPhone, download the apps for each to your own. Purchase a paper copy from any bookstore. Now your rights and help re-establish freedom in America.

We have the Constitutional right to displace a government no longer for the people and replace it with one that is. It is the duty of every American citizen to defend America from enemies both foreign and domestic. The current enemy is domestic. This domestic enemy is our current government. We must uphold our duty to replace the existing government with a new government of the people in order to ensure freedom for our children and our childrens children. If we continue to sit and do nothing, we will be exterminated, our children will not live free but as slaves.

“In the beginning of a change, the Patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a Patriot”

“Twenty years from now you will be disappointed by the things that you did not do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

“the true patriotism, the only rational patriotism, is loyalty to the Nation ALL the time, loyalty to the Government when it deserves it”

9/11 Remembered. We Will Never Forget

As a Christian minister it is my duty to lead spiritually and I am doing my best as Jesus Christ leads me. It is a belief of many that today is a day of memory and not service. They say this in opposition to Mr. Obama’s call to service. I agree. It is a day of memory and prayer on this 10th anniversary of 9/11.

How many people remember where they were on 9/11/01? I was sitting in my classroom in High School. I was in 11th grade. I was in Public Speaking. The teachers were told to turn on the news. That was the strangest moment in my life. They were talking about the first plane hitting the tower. Then out of no where you see the second one come in from the side of the screen. I was left speechless. That day was the first day I have ever heard complete silence throughout the entire building. I wanted to believe I was watching a sci-fi film.

Now I had just recently took interest in politics prior to 9/11. I knew a little about what was going on in the mainstream. I was also a conspiracy theorist. I have always looked at the mainstream as well as the not-so mainstream to determine what is really going on. That day I went extreme with politics, news, theories. I became a news junky after 9/11. I also remember my dad, a truck driver with UPS, telling me his story. He was at the WTC dropping a package just before the attack. He said he was on the bridge heading back toward Long Island, when he heard a loud explosion. He looked into the rear mirror on the side of the truck. Saw the smoke erupting from the towers.
Do any of you remember where you were? Do your children know about 9/11? And its importance?
Mainstream is telling us it was an attack by “radical” Islam. Mainstream is telling us we are winning. The fact of the matter is there is no such thing as a moderate muslim. All muslims follow the same Qu’ran and follows Sharia law. The Qu’ran tells muslims to kill all infidels. Ladies and gentleman, we are those infidels. In a nation that follows Sharia law there is no room for the U.S. Constitution. We are losing this war. And we will continue to lose unless we stand together.

They are on whats called a jihad. We are witnessing a demographic jihad, which is an attack by immigration and reproduction leading to infiltration of politics and displacement of the nations original culture; and a war jihad, meaning they want to keep us overwhelmed with fear as they kill us off.
Many politicians have led many citizens to believe we are a secular nation. Fact is we are a Christian nation. Our Constitution, Founding Fathers, music, and morals eminate this fact; as explained in numerous articles on http://spiritualmessiahministries.org The muslims also realize we are a Christian nation. Proof of this was 9/11. They werent attacking us as a secular nation that they could easily over-throw via demographic jihad alone. They were attacking the last and strongest Christian nation left on Earth, that is also home to a strong and vibrant Jewish society, and the protector of Israel. In the Qu’ran America is Big Satan and Israel is Little Satan.

By practicing Islam, the muslim has a duty laid before him by Allah to destroy us and dominate the world. The muslims who attacked on 9/11 were rather intelligent. They knew if they could destroy international commerce as well as bring pain to America, the entire West would fall. They first tried in the early 1990’s and failed. In 2001 they succeeded. Ten years later we are still feeling the pain. The wound emotionally as well as economically is still wide open.

We lost 3,000 lives that day. They will never be forgotten. We always keep in mind that though they are gone from the flesh, they are still upon us in spirit.
It wasnt until i began watching memorial videos that i realized, 10yrs later, how i am still affected. The only thing that has changed for me in the past ten years, is that i now know the truth. I wont go into everything just yet as much of it seems to be conspiracist at first. Google 9/11truth and watch the film Loose Change. Those two simple acts will bring to light much hidden truth that was cloaked in lies and deception to this day by our own government. Our enemy is Islam. It is a dangerous ideology that perfectly fits the description of the beast in Revelations. Islam is literally of Satan. Many muslims follow Islam legitimately but many are forced converts and others are brainwashed by muslim apologetics. As long as America is standing and Christians and Jews are within her borders, followers of Islam will continue to attack us in one way or another.

As Christianity and Judiasm is becoming outlawed and pushed out of America, we must never forget those who died on 9/11/01 and who was behind their murder. We must also stand together and stand strong. Jesus Christ will be returning soon and we will be re-aquainted with those who died. Those responsible for the deaths of all the innocent Americans who died on 9/11 will be left to burn in hell.

No matter what the government, media, or muslim propaganda and indoctrination in our schools state to be fact, we know Truth. That Truth is Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation, America was born a Christian nation and will die a Christian nation, 9/11/01 was an attack and act of war on America and Christianity not just a tragedy, and the enemy is Islam.

The souls of those who died will never be forgotten. The enemy will continue attacks both foreign and domestic. As we go day to day we must keep them alive in our hearts. We must never turn our backs on Christ. We must not allow their deaths to be in vain. We must not allow the enemy now nor in the future to win this war. Be forever vigil.

Now I ask you to pray with me.
9/11 was a tragic day. Many have died innocently. Others courageously. The Spirit of Christ was surely with the passengers of Flight 93 and all the first responders who put themselves before others to help those in trouble. May we never forget. May their souls continue to live eternally with God the Father and Jesus Christ. May peace be upon their souls forever. May those who caused this and future attacks be brought to justice before God. In the name of Jesus Christ, let us pray. Amen.

May all those who died on 9/11/01 Rest In Peace and may God Bless America.

Obama Feels He Has Control Over Religion

Obama is attempting to take control of Christian organizations. When he realizes he cannot do so under the U.S. Constitution, he will do away with the constitution and make Christianity illegal. He has already determined and publicized via DHS that terrorists are Christians. Which means the founding fathers were terrorists. You and I are terrorists. American patriots, working middle class, white males are terrorists. Christianity illegality is around the corner lest we stand up now.

Obama Issues Decree That He Will Now Decide Religiosity Of Churches, And Will Take Policy Control Of Those “Not Religious” In “The Right Way”, Then Immediately Orders Leftist Thug Control Of First Victim Church at Pat Dollard

A Message from an American to Americans

A PATRIOT SPEAKS FROM HIS HEART – A MUST READ

I Am the Democratic, Republican Liberal-Progressives Worst Nightmare.

I am a White, Conservative, Tax-Paying, American Veteran, Gun Owning Biker. That’s me!

…I am a Master Mason. I work hard and long hours with my hands to earn a living.

I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don’t push it on others.

I ride Harley Davidson Motorcycles, and drive American-made cars, and I believe in American products and buy them whenever I can.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and not some liberal governmental functionary, Democratic or Republican, that wants to share it with others who don’t work!

I’m in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!

I think owning a gun doesn’t make you a killer; it makes you a smart American.

I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. Get over it!

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac or any other item, you should do it in English.

I believe there should be no other language option.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

My heroes are Malcolm Forbes, Bill Gates, John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers, and Willie G. Davidson, who makes the awesome Harley Davidson Motorcycles.

I don’t hate the rich. I don’t pity the poor.

I know wrestling is fake and I don’t waste my time watching or arguing about it.

I’ve never owned a slave, nor was I a slave. I haven’t burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks, and neither have you!

I believe if you don’t like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!

This is AMERICA …We like it the way it is and more so the way it was …so stop trying to change it to look like Russia or China , or some other socialist country! If you were born here and don’t like it… you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you.

I believe it is time to really clean house, starting with the White House, the seat of our biggest problems.

I want to know which church is it, exactly, where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution?

Can I get an AMEN on that one?

I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you’re breaking the law, regardless of what color you are, but not just because you happen to ride a bike.

And, no, I don’t mind having my face shown on my driver’s license. I think it’s good…. And I’m proud that ‘God’ is written on my money..

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don’t want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.

I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making ‘donations’ to their cause…. Get a job and do your part to support yourself and your family!

>

I believe that it doesn’t take the government to raise a child, it takes parents….

>

I believe ‘illegal’ is illegal no matter what the lawyers think!

>

I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA!

>

If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I’m a BAD American.

>

If you are a BAD American too, please forward this to everyone you know….

>

> We want our country back!

>

My Country….. I hope this offends all illegal aliens.

>

My great, great, great, great grandfather watched and bled as his friends died in the Revolution & the War of 1812

My great, great, great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Mexican American War

My great, great grandfather watched as his friends & brothers died in the Civil War.

My great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Spanish-American War.

My grandfather watched as his friends died in WW I.

My father watched as his friends died in WW II.

>

I watched as my friends died in Vietnam, Panama & Desert Storm.

My son watched & bled as his friends died in Afghanistan and Iraq .

None of them died for the Mexican Flag.

They all died for the American flag.

Texas high school students raised a Mexican flag on a school flag pole, other students took it down. Guess who was expelled…the students who took it down

California high school students were sent home on Cinco de Mayo, because they wore T-shirts with the American flag printed on them.

Enough is enough

This message needs to be viewed by every American; and every American needs to stand up for America .

We’ve bent over backwards to appease the America-haters long enough.

I’m taking a stand.

I’m standing up for the hundreds of thousands who died fighting in wars for this country, for the American flag and our right to remain free.

If you agree, stand up with me, stand up for yourself, stand up together,stand up for the Republic & the Constitution and most of all stand up with God.

AMERICANS, stop giving away Your RIGHTS & Freedom!

Let me make this clear! THIS IS OUR COUNTRY!

This statement DOES NOT mean I’m against immigration!

YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY, welcome to come legally:

1. Get a sponsor !

2. Learn the LANGUAGE, as immigrants have in the past

3. Live by OUR rules !

4. Get a job !

5. Pay YOUR Taxes !

6. No Social Security until you have earned and Paid for it !

7. NOW find a place to lay your head !

If you don’t want to forward this for fear of offending someone or it is politically incorrect, then YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM !

We’ve gone so far the other way, bent over backwards not to offend anyone.

Only AMERICANS seem to care when American Citizens are being offended.

WAKE UP AMERICA IT’S LATER THAN YOU THINK!!

And shame on anyone who tries to make this a racist message.

Made in the U S A & PROUD OF IT!!!!!

Call Us Paranoid

You may say we are paranoid; but we’re going to say we’re doing our job. Our ministry was formed in January. Made our presence on the internet in April. Since then, we have over 3100+ hits to the main site and over 300+ to the podcasts. Reverend Red has been involved in numerous arguments with Muslims, had his life threatened, has government officials and news agencies following him on twitter. And now we have had our website hacked, we have phone calls coming from non-existent (invalid) phone numbers, our internet service is constantly interrupted.

Its fair game to say not everyone will agree with what we preach. Not everyone wants to hear the Truth. Not everyone understands, nor do they wish to understand, what the Bible says or what Truth is. Many are blindly following mainstream. Now, you would think if you didnt want to listen to us, you would just ignore us.

But to see our website is being hacked, calls are coming in from non-existant phone numbers, internet service is being interrupted, death threats, and gaining growing interest from news outlets and government officials; we are going to say we are doing our job. We hit a nerve with the spawns of satan, and they are keeping a close eye on us and are trying to shut us up.

We will stop at nothing to spread Truth and wake up the sheeple. If we are being viewed as a threat by the spawns of satan, we must be doing something right. All we are doing is spreading Truth, correcting the false, gathering the lost.

Now if we only had less than 4000 hits and under 1000 followers between facebook and twitter in 4 months time, why are we deemed a threat? Why are they trying to stop us? What do they feel we can do with only 5000 people?

Their problem with us is the fact we are Soldiers of Christ. Those are 1000 people that are seeing our posts on a daily basis. Those are 3100+ repeat visitors each week to our site. An additional 80-100 viewers extra each week throughout the week. That equals out to 4100+ people a month who are either awake or waking up, with an additional 320-400 people a month who are coming across our site. That is roughly 4500 people a month that are viewing our material, searching to see if we are right, and asking questions. Three out of five people pass information on, whether it be positive or it be negatively. That equals out to approximately 18,000 people that have heard of us and what we preach and/or visited our websites. Since April, our podcasts and articles have also made it into countless online newspapers spread via twitter.

The threat comes from the fact we are preaching Truth in every aspect of the word. No stone unturned. And the fact in only 4 months we have had thousands of views, amassed 4100+ viewers via our website, facebook and twitter. (Soon coming to YouTube.) They fear we will continue to grow in number, and wake up the sheeple at an ever increasing rate.

One thing they didn’t count on with Spiritual Messiah Ministries, is that we are more than just a ministry. We arent a ministry in the modern use of the term. Our ministry is a direct extension of Jesus Christ’s ministry in every way. We are more than just average people. We have His Spirit dwelling within us. We are more than just a “religious” institution. We are a Spiritually inclined organization empowered by His Spirit to fight for Truth and the survival of Gods children.

We cannot be stopped. For every one of us that is silenced, there are ten more to take their place. Not all of us carry the name Spiritual Messiah Ministries. The Spiritual Truth movement, led by Spiritual Messiah Ministries, is a movement made up of numerous Christian and Jewish ministries, truth organizations, and average people fighting for Truth, justice, and liberty for all. The Spiritual Truth movement will continue to grow until all of Gods children are home.

People feel that if they threaten us and scare us, we will stop. To those people we say this: We do NOT fear you now nor in the future, for you are NOT God. You may be able to slow down the movement, but you cannot silence God. People will awaken. Once awoken, your efforts to hand us over to Satan will be stopped. For it is written. Prophecy cannot be stopped or altered. We suggest you spawns of Satan pray and pray hard. Maybe, if your lucky, you’ll be forgiven and welcomed into Christendom.

To those who are awake, email SpiritualMessiahMinistries@gmail.com for info on how to join us.

God Bless

Is this the end of America? A Christian ministers point of view.

Is this the End of America? A Christian ministers point of view.
By Reverend Dr. Red Conrad, D.D.

To listen to the Podcast Click Here

This is going to be rather short, but it is to the point. A message that must be sent out. Everything i reference to can be googled to get pages of results for details on each topic. Im starting with a bit of my personal testimony as I feel it fits the topic and is a good starting point.

I was raised Catholic, went through stages of satanism, wicca and atheism. Around 15 i gained interest in politics. By 16 i was heavy into conspiracy theories and world faiths. I was seeking the truth in everything. I started a website where everything i had found was posted. I always spoke spiritually (even though i didnt believe in Jesus Christ) when my friends asked me for help or guidance. At a local 7-Eleven I worked at in NY, i would have the store filling with people. Not to purchase anything, but to hear me preach.

I didnt know what was going on or why, sometimes i feel as i still dont fully understand it. But after about 8 years of studying politics, conspiracy theories, and faiths; i had begun an obsession with Spiritual Truth. I became obsessed with understanding the Bible and Jesus Christ. Why are there so many different “Christian” views? What is the real story? As i went through my private studies, i spoke to my customers at work about it. Not before long i was no longer a clerk conversing with his customers. I was a born-again Christian, ordained by God, preaching to his congregation. All that did was make me want to know more. I was saved by Jesus. His Spirit now dwelling in my heart. It was clear to me I had not only been saved, but I was given a mission. The Christian church has become secular and full of blasphemy, few Christian pastors preaching Truth, leaving millions confused.

I then took a course with a monastery, where I studied over 32 faiths, recieved my legal ordination and my Doctor of Divinity degree. After which i began meeting many ministers, hearing of others, and reading of others. Many are out there who share my concern. Christianity in America has become secular. Millions are confused. Hundreds of thousands claiming to be atheist but grew up in a Christian household. Churches are now more worried about being politically correct rather than spiritually correct. God has seemingly been pushed out of America. On top of all this, Christians are now being called “terrorists” and “criminals” by the current administration and the Department of Homeland Security. The Tea Party has even been recieving death threats and statements are being made that they need to be round-up and given a minimum term of 1 year in a re-education center.

There are many ministers, myself included, that are very concerned. Every nation that was great involved God in all of their daily activities. Upon removing God from their lives, the nation fell. America is now at that point. Nazi Germany rised to power via Hitler by putting the blame on the Jewish. It began with subtle, yet powerful propaganda against them. America is now seeing this happen here via the current administration and the Marxist currently hijacking the position of POTUS. Those who are aware of this fear what is ahead. Only few see what is going on and far less are speaking up.

What happened to a free America? An America that stood up for their beliefs, life, liberty, justice, their dreams, and the persuit of happiness? Has the American spirit really left the American? Are we really going to just sit back and allow every aspect of our lives to be controlled not by us, but by the government? Are we not going to learn from history, from Nazi Germany, and heed the warning signs of a Nazi Germany lifestyle beginning here? Realize that in Nazi America, Christians and Jews are the “terrorists”, all white males are “criminals”, and the muslims are the heros? African-Americans and Hispanics are being used solely for their vote? Are we not going to realize this is what happens when a nation as a whole does not accept God in their daily lives?

America right now is in very dangerous times. She is being attacked from all sides, as well as from within. She is breathing her last breath. We can save America. We can breath life back into this nation. But not by continuing down the path we are on. We must realize where we are currently headed and why. We must realize that this nation was founded and built on Christian values. We must accept God into our daily lives. We must do this as a whole, as a nation. Our forefathers put their lives on the line and many died to form this nation under God, allowing all its citizens freedom. It would be a disgrace to see their efforts be for nothing. They were being over-taxed and controlled by the government. We are now experiencing the same trouble as our forefathers 235 years ago. We are watching our freedoms and way of life perish before our very eyes. Noone does anything. Are we to be as the Germans? Ignore it and hope it goes away?

The people as a whole needs to wake up and realize we have been lied to. We are now being lied to. And we will continue to be lied to if we dont vote a true American into office in 2012. If the Marxist returns in 2012, America as a republic will be dead. America as a socialistic totalitarian dictatorship will be born, much how Hitler took Germany. We the people must turn our backs on those who have stabbed us in ours. We must turn away from mammon and back to God. We must ask God for His forgiveness and His guidance. We must stand up and let the current administration know that we have had enough. They are trying to control our lives, tell us what we want, disarm us, and shrink the military; and we have had enough. We must educate ourselves, educate others, and remove the blinders from Americas eyes and the cotton swabs from Americas ears. We will not fall for their propaganda. We will not allow them to accuse us of being criminals simply because we are American.

America needs to stand together. We need to realize what is being done to us. The current administration has no concern who you are or your background. He is dismantling our society. White, black, hispanic or asian, Christians and Jews are beginning to be criminalized because we believe in God. We have the ability to shed light into their darkness and they fear that happening. There are riots of “flash mobs” of black young adults attacking whites. Nothing is being said. Could it be because the Marxist is hoping to use the violence of these black young people to implement martial law? Whites and blacks alike are finding it increasingly harder to find work. Could this be in order to make us feel we need the governments help? This administration is attempting to bring us to our knees. White, black, or any other race, we must show the government we are tired of being lied to and used for their personal gain. We the people of America will not take this laying down. We are a nation of many cultures, created equal built on Christian values and freedom. It is time we show this administration that we can and will work together and support each other as an American people; we will not allow division any longer; whether that division be racial, cultural, or otherwise. We must not let the cause of great men such as our founding fathers and Martin Luther King, Jr. be for nothing. We must not allow these causes to be forgotten. Every so often an era arises that hero’s must be born. We the people are the hero’s of today. But to get that title, we must stick together and bring America back to greatness; a nation under God.
“In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot” -Mark Twain
“Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God” -Thomas Jefferson

There are many of you out there that are either awake or waking up to the Truth but are scared to say anything. To you i say: what do you fear more; standing up for whats right and giving your children a wonderful future or staying quiet and giving your children a future of servitude and torture?
If you are a minister and are afraid of standing up and preaching truth because you are a 501(c)3 and fear breaking the laws set forth in the contract, you have options. Google what you can legally say and how. Also google what you can do to keep tax exempt status (if that is what you are concerned about) and de-corporatize your church/ministry/etc.

To those who say Christians are against violence, i say to you: turn to your Bible. Jesus commanded the Apostles to carry their swords to protect themselves from unjust persecution. Research the history of the Revolution. It was organized and lead by ministers.
“Brethren, we came to this country to practice our religious liberties, and if we dont get involved, we are going to lose them” -John Peter Muhlenberg 1777

To those of you who are speaking out: we need to organize and help others get the courage to do the same. There are far too many organizations and movements out there. Instead of starting something new or fighting amongst yourselves, we must put our differences aside and unite under one roof. We must organize. We must let the government know we do not fear them for they are not God. God is who we fear and they better start. If we continue to allow fear of the government control us, we will see tyranny reign over us. If we stand up and make them fear us, we will once again be free.

Many people are saying they have had enough. Many are calling for unity. What are we waiting for?
The time is now; if not now, then when?

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” -Samuel Adams Aug. 1, 1776

Feel free to leave a comment and/or contact myself or the ministry for details on the movement to save America and/or what you can do.

Disclaimer: In no way, shape or form am I suggesting for anyone to break the law or disobey the law in any manner. I feel all laws set forth in the United States Constitution must be obeyed. It is treasonous to believe and/or act otherwise. I am not suggesting for anyone to disobey the statements set forth in the Constitution. I am simply stating an observation and calling for people to do the same. The Constitution is to be respected and adhered to by ALL Americans.

Agenda 21 and Bible Prophecy

Agenda 21 and Bible Prophecy
By Reverend Dr. Red Conrad, D.D.

Agenda 21 is a serious threat to the American way of life and to humanity all around the globe. This may sound crazy to some of you, but please read. This is a warning of what is going on right before our eyes and how we can fight it.

You may already know of Agenda 21 as the Earth Summit or UNEP.

The goal of Agenda 21 is to reduce the human populace by 85% in order to control us easier. To deem lands uninhabitable and complete annihilation of human living in these uninhabitable lands in order to control their slaves easier by not allowing us to travel certain lands or between these “island cities”. To push health food and healthier lifestyles for stronger slaves. Any and all elderly, physically or mentally ill, smokers, etc. will be killed. In the current academic system, we no longer have education. We have indoctrination of globalist propaganda brainwashing our children. We have doctors diagnosing children with disorders that do not exist for the sole purpose of pumping drugs in their system to dumb them down, to make any self-survival instincts dormant, which will turn our children into robots. The perfect little slave. The same is being done to adults. Do you or your child take xanax? Valium? Ritolin? Or any other type of behavioral drug? Stop taking it. The drugs are designed to alter the chemical make-up of the brain; in doing so, making you more submissive to the government. The drugs are also not allowing you to see what is happening to you, or around you, the way it is actually happening. You will not realize what is happening until it is too late. The drugs distort the perception of reality.

Religions of the world will be outlawed. The first to be outlawed will be Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, and Zoroastrianism. The purpose behind beginning with those four, is because they are all different peices or interpretations of the Truth; that can and will shed light into the darkness. In the four; names change, slight details differ, but they all base around Truth. Christianity and Judaism is seen as the largest threat to Agenda 21 and the elite.

Everyone will be forced to recieve a chip in their hand or forehead. Without the chip, one will not be able to buy, sell, lease anything. Anyone who refuses the chip, not only can they not take part in the community, they will be killed on the orders of the government.
Agenda 21 being implemented is the beginning of a One World Government and a One World Religion. Welcome to the New World Order, unless ofcourse, you cherish Freedom and have Faith in God and willing to fight in Christ’s namesake against this emerging Satanic world order.

This has all been prophecied to happen. To that extent, nothing can be done. Prophecy must be fulfilled. However, we are not to do nothing. We must fight. It is as much a physical battle as it is a spiritual battle. It has also been prophecied that there will be fights before the war to end all wars. People, who heed the warnings set forth since the beginning of time, can and will escape this tyrannical rule by the globalist elite. We can defeat them. In order to do so, we MUST remain faithful in Jesus Christ and we MUST stick together. The time to fight is now.

To see this in Prophecy, lets turn to the Bible. Revelations chapters 13, 16, 17, and 18.
Below are also two articles going into depth about Agenda 21. For further information, please visit http://www.freedomadvocates.org

Despite what happens, no matter how bad things get, do NOT fear bearring your Cross. Do NOT leave your faith. Stand WITH God, not against Him.

Agenda 21 in the Bible:
13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 13:2And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 13:3And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 13:4And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 13:5And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 13:6And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 13:7And 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. 13:8And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 13:9If any man have an ear, let him hear. 13:10He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 13:11And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 13:12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13:13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 13:14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 13:15And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 13:16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 13:17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 13:18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Rev. Chap. 13 KJV

16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. 16:2And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. 16:3And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea. 16:4And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. 16:5And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. 16:6For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. 16:7And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments. 16:8And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 16:9And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. 16:10And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 16:11And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds. 16:12And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 16:13And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 16:14For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 16:15Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. 16:16And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. 16:17And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 16:18And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 16:19And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 16:20And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 16:21And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
Chapter 17
17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 17:2With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 17:3So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 17:4And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 17:5And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 17:6And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. 17:7And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 17:8The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 17:9And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 17:10And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 17:11And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 17:12And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 17:13These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 17:14These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. 17:15And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 17:16And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17:17For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 17:18And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Chapter 18
18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 18:2And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 18:3For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 18:4And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 18:5For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 18:6Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 18:7How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 18:8Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. 18:9And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, 18:10Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. 18:11And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: 18:12The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, 18:13And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. 18:14And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. 18:15The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 18:16And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! 18:17For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, 18:18And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! 18:19And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. 18:20Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. 18:21And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. 18:22And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; 18:23And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. 18:24And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. Rev. Chap. 16-18 KJV

Two articles about Agenda 21 from http://www.freedomadvocates.org:
Assessing Monetary Collapse: Exposing Agenda 21 and Understanding Freedom

By Michael Shaw   
Thursday, 09 June 2011 12:58

What if the Federal Reserve dollar falls – hard? How is the globalist blueprint known as Sustainable Development Agenda 21 designed to make humans into livestock? Why liberty must be understood by this generation of Americans lest it be lost for a very long time.

More Americans, an accelerating percentage of ordinary citizens, have come to understand the nature of “fiat” monetary system – that is money created out of thin air. The contemporary fiat system came to the United States in 1913 with the congressional creation of the privately owned United States Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve legislation violated Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution by the issuance of legal tender and brought once again the influence/control of the globalist banking cartel to the U.S.

Today’s global monetary system was originally authorized by the British Parliament. Its purpose was to form the central bank of England as the Bank of England, which is the equivalent to our Federal Reserve, to control a nation’s money.

“Issuing money” means controlling fiat (phony) money creation through the operation of a printing press or computer entry. This results in the regular increase in the money supply which ultimately expresses itself as price inflation.

Newly issued money is infused into the money supply via the creation of debt. Much of this debt is held by the federal government. More money equals more debt. ‘The harder I work’, says the average American, ‘the deeper in debt the nation becomes.’

Growing debt cedes the ultimate exercise of control to the creditor, particularly as the system breaks down under its own largesse. A “new” system is being designed by the same forces who designed today’s fiat system and who now have America close to the brink of dollar destruction. It is the replacement system that we must be wary of if we are to exercise a wise defense and restoration of freedom.

In the meantime keep your faith in the dollar’s viability. Don’t let the blame for its destruction be placed upon the people. The creators of funny (fiat) money have the advantage and they control its destruction; they are wholly responsible.

The power in having charge of the printing press provides control of the direction of government. A thorough analysis of that control would be an illuminating dynamic.

After all, we can begin to think of how Congress has taken physical control over a large percentage of American land in violation of strict constitutional limitations on federal government land ownership. No doubt this centralized land and resource control works to the benefit of the globalist financiers.

Another example: American government, at all levels directs funds and partners with Smart Growth advocates and participants in an effort to remake society while herding people and controlling human action. Smart Growth operates pursuant to the ultimate and documented Agenda 21 objective – to massively reduce human population.

And another: Increasingly Government institutes policies and programs that monitor and control your every action, e.g., TSA, cameras everywhere, Smart Meters, bio-metric drivers’ licenses, and more.

Understand what the global elite’s control of money is doing to the world’s inhabitants.

Thomas Jefferson warned: “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

Congress has passed legislation that built debt of trillions owed to the Federal Reserve. America’s creditors are the descendants and current representatives of the creators of the globally controlled monetary system in which the Federal Reserve simply participates.

In order to subject America to Globalist political and economic control, Congress has made possible the construction of a financial house of cards – our currency! Fiat systems either implode through the forces of economics or are imploded by those in control.

One can anticipate that the core globalists’ power is planned to increase as they scheme to take charge of the selection of the replacement monetary system. While springing this new monetary system, globalists will have created supporting systems of justice and government for this new monetary model. Such is the New World Order.

This ‘new’ order must be understood to be a process. The question of our time is: How far along is this process?

Part Two: Advancing Globalism – Agenda 21

The new order grows out of ownership and control of the monetary system. This power already controls: compliant governments around the world, multinational corporations, and education and academia designed to create a new man – one unconnected to the principles of the past. An existent infrastructure for world government has been established that includes the World Bank, the World Trade Organization, the Bank of International Settlements and the United Nations. The United Nations in turn accredits thousands of so-called Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) for the purpose of implementing the United Nations’ Agenda 21. Agenda 21 is the “comprehensive” blueprint for the construction of a global-to-local network of localized outposts of the global order.

Agenda 21 is known in counties across America as “Sustainable Development.” Sustainability policies are now pursued in every county in the United States. Agenda 21 is the globalist program designed to achieve the step-by-step abolition of private property, education for global citizenship and control over human action. This control includes the written objective that human population be reduced by 85%.

As noted above, every county in America has adopted its own Sustainability program. It is often couched in the advancement of the so called Three Es: Equity, meaning the use of sociology and the remaking of the law to meet government’s social objectives and establish a collectivist society; Economics, meaning the international redistribution of America’s wealth and meaning the conversion of our economy from a free enterprise system based on private property to a system of “public private partnership” (otherwise known as economic fascism or corporatism); and Environment, meaning nature before man.

Upon examination one can begin to see how Globalism is advanced through the local implementation of Agenda 21. The key elements of the land use component of Agenda 21 are the Wildlands Network and Smart Growth. Between these two programs, people will be herded into metropolitan environs while made reliant on public transportation and subjected to increasing monitoring. The Wildlands – 50% of America’s land mass plus buffer zones fronting the Wildlands – will be off-limits to ordinary people and to resource extraction. This program is advanced from a thousand points of darkness lead by the environmental movement in action.

The battlefield for Sustainable Development has become local. Agenda 21 is implemented through your city council, County Boards of Commissioners, local water boards, fire boards, school boards and more. Elected officials have accepted the bogus Sustainable “consensus” advocated by NGOs and other followers of Sustainability policy.

A prime player in bringing globalist policy to locales like yours is ICLEI, the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. Over 600 cities or county governments have treasonous contracts with this international NGO. A handful of cities, recently and in response to an informed citizenry, have cancelled their contracts. In these communities, local policy must now be cleansed of globalist influence. The process has begun. The battle is on! Now is the time to cleanse your town of Agenda 21 policy! KICK ICLEI OUT!

Other significant contributors to Agenda 21 policy at the local level are the federally established Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and the Councils of Governments (COGs). These soviet style organizations work to impose Sustainability policies in their member jurisdictions. Cities, counties, school districts and other local political subdivisions need to withdraw from these extensions of the federal commitment to implement Agenda 21. It becomes clear that these organization types were created in order to further an evolving globalist agenda. Regionalism is the pathway to New Order governance!

The commitment to Agenda 21 is fully imbedded in American government, business and educational systems.

Part Three: Restoring America; Every Person Matters

The American ideal was predicated on the idea of the political recognition of the unalienable rights of the individual. That is the notion that human beings are vested by their creator with an unalienable right: to life, to liberty, to the use and enjoyment of private property and to other undesignated rights that are natural to man. This experiment in governance necessarily limited the scope of government power so as to not infringe on these natural rights while charging the citizens as being responsible for their own lives. Accordingly, philosophers, historians, and ordinary people have claimed that America’s Declaration of Independence is mankind’s greatest achievement. Now that achievement is being buried under Agenda 21’s onslaught.

Understanding what we are up against is critical if we are to win the war to defend and restore liberty. That’s why seeing how the global-to-local action people operate – including the legions pursuing globalism within NGOs, academia, multinationals and more – is key if we are to reverse freedom’s fall. Today we need to revive our commitment to human liberty in order to survive the globalist onslaught.

While it is important to know what it is that we are fighting against, it is also necessary to know what we fight for. The fact is that liberty is being abandoned through the plunder of private property and the crush of privacy engineered through a system of fiat money created and manipulated by those with a maniacal pursuit to control the human species.

So what is the liberty we cherish? Liberty exists when there is a political recognition that everyman owns his life, when justice is applied equally, and when the economy proceeds naturally on the basis of free enterprise. Liberty acknowledges that man is nature’s steward and that stewardship is best advanced under a system of personal responsibility pursued in the context of advancing one’s own life. A private property forest owner has as a primary interest the long term protection of the land’s resource. This is why genuine private property rewards both its owner with continuing income and the market he serves with ample product.

Why is America the only place where human beings have lived free? The answer is simple. America is the only place where the government has recognized that every person is vested with certain unalienable rights. America falls as that recognition fades.

How does America revive? We must establish an honest monetary system and we must cleanse our municipal, state and federal laws of globalist policy as articulated in the Action plan of Agenda 21. As a consequence, we will: withdraw from internationalist organizations, restructure debt, massively shrink the scope of governmental operations, and reassume the American form of limited government where individual liberty can thrive.

Hope, predicated on a commitment to restore the principles of liberty, is rising. The course of the future is up to you.

Every person can make a difference.

Agenda 21 — The Blueprint to Advance Sustainable Development

By Daniel Beckett   
Tuesday, 15 June 2004 08:34

In this straightforward expose of Agenda 21 — the blueprint to advance Sustainable Development — Beckett examines the notion of “sustainability”.  His conclusion: The American people need to be better informed so they understand that Sustainable Development is a pseudonym for centralized control over human life.

Santa Cruz County, CA 

The policies of Sustainable Development are changing the very fabric of America.

Sustainable Development entered the world officially in 1987 in a report of the United Nations Commission on Environment and Development entitled, “Our Common Future”. This commission was chaired by Gro Harlem Bruntland, Prime minister of Norway and Vice-President of the World Socialist Party. A well known mantra that originated from that report is “meeting today’s need’s without compromising future generations to meet their own needs”. If one is to look, this mission statement has been incorporated into many government and non-government organizations. Is it a surprise that it was also reflected in the old Soviet constitution?

Then in 1992 the United Nations conference on “Environment and Development” was held in Rio De Janeiro Brazil. This summit is commonly referred to as the “Earth Summit”. Then-President George H. Bush signed what is commonly referred to as the “Rio Accords”. Out of this conference came the “Agenda 21” document. Agenda 21 was adopted as a work plan to implement Sustainable Development by 179 nations including our own.

The following year, newly-elected President Bill Clinton created “The Presidents Council on Sustainable Development” through executive order. This order created the framework for the federal government to begin implementing sustainable development programs nationwide. All of this has been moving forward with virtually no legislative debate.

I first became aware of Agenda 21 in the summer of 2000 when I was given a copy of the Santa Cruz Local Agenda 21 document, a regurgitated version of the global document. This local plan was endorsed by our esteemed Congressman Sam Farr on June 3rd, 1997. Is it any coincidence that Mr. Farr flies the United Nations flag at his Congressional office in Washington, DC? 

So what could be wrong with the idea of being sustainable? We don’t want to be unsustainable, do we? The problem with Sustainable Development is that it flies in the face of man’s will to advance. America is the greatest country in the world. Why? Because its citizens were allowed the use of its bountiful resources. There was no king or dictator to control man’s creative action. 

The idea behind Sustainable Development is to foster a mentality of guilt in people over the use of natural resources. Every time one starts their car… Every time one turns on a water faucet… Remember, be sustainable! Don’t exceed your allotment of resources… Big Brother is watching you. We all must learn to live the same, think the same and most importantly… be sustainable!

America was not created using this mindset. America was created with the mindset of full speed ahead!!! I don’t think NASA was concerned about being sustainable when they were going to the moon.

You see, the real agenda behind Sustainable Development has nothing to do with protecting the environment. It is about controlling the natural resources. If the resources are controlled, the people are controlled. The screws are already tightening on us. Does it make any sense that we must use poisonous, difficult to dispose of, fluorescent lighting in kitchens now? These things should be a personal choice. No doubt in time the use of all natural resources will be highly regulated. 

Of course, as in the old Soviet Union, not everyone will be required to live the peasant lifestyle. Those who play along will be rewarded. But the reward will only be a temporary one. It comes down to “the end justifies the means”. The “useful idiots” will be in for a big surprise when they realize the noose they helped to tie will be placed around their own necks. 

Problem is, most of the Think Global, Act Local socialists realize that most adults are smart enough to see through their utopian pipe dreams. Their solution? Brainwash the school children. It’s not education anymore. It’s indoctrination. That’s why it’s so important to have good teachers in the system. The local Packard Foundation (billions of dollars in assets at last check) funds a great many projects related to Sustainable Development. The next generation is being prepared to live in a new controlled society where people are discouraged from reaching their personal best. All this is being done with the help of our tax money. 

Indicators of Sustainable Development and Agenda 21 are everywhere. The city of Watsonville is busy implementing its own Agenda 21 Plan, called ACTION Pajaro Valley. The county is neck-deep with valley and village plans, such as in Corralitos and Aptos. Then there is the City of Marina redevelopment plan. The name of this type of planning is “community planning”, “comprehensive planning”, “growth management planning”, or “smart growth”. They all mean the same thing. Oh, then let’s not forget about Highway 1. The plan on that is to stall long enough, until we all give up on our cars due to unbearable congestion. We are being molded into complying with a more controlled and less independent form of transportation, such as the proposed rail line. Then there won’t be a need to widen the highway. We have become guinea pigs in a social experiment. 

Getting back to community planning, it is based on the creation of councils called “visioning councils”. These councils are manipulated in such a way as to come to a pre-determined outcome. The professional facilitators of the meeting work hard to make sure all those involved are easily swayed into being agreeable. The process utilizes group manipulation tactics. Most people fear the thought of looking foolish in front of others and tend to keep quiet. If one is vocal, and unwilling to go along, a wily facilitator will pick up on this and use mockery to shut the person up. I have seen this demonstrated on numerous occasions. These so-called “visioning councils” are based on a very similar method of government such as that which was used in the Soviet Union. It is a top down form of governance where the local representatives blindly follow along behind their higher ups. The infrastructure for the brave new world of tomorrow is being created today right in front of our eyes. It’s not about free enterprise providing the type of housing people want anymore. It’s about government dictating the type of housing it will allow people to live in. I guess the government has forgotten the fact that it is not its role to control the housing market. 

In fact, there is a lot of so-called public land in this county. But activities for outdoor sports and recreation are becoming increasingly restricted. There is big demand for activities such as hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, etc., but these activities are often considered to be unsustainable and therefore not allowed. A lot of this so-called open space is just plain closed off to all human use. More and more regulation is being placed on the use of public lands. I am not a big proponent of the government acquiring any more land, either directly or through “funnel” agencies such as Land Trusts — who usually sell back to the government at a profit and then repeat the cycle. 

If one is willing to take the time and do the research, you will come to realize — as I did — that we are in big trouble in this country. It doesn’t seem to make much difference who is in power, be it Democrat or Republican, the Agenda 21 beat goes on. It is a very troubling and discouraging to realize that our own government is implementing a program that would make the Marxists proud. Did all those brave American soldiers die in the second World War fighting tyrannical regimes, for this? The American people need to be informed so they have a chance to voice their opposition to this form of tyranny. Forget about any major media willing to discuss this issue. I would suggest Freedom Advocates as a good start.

If America is to remain the land of the free and home of the brave the truth must get out. All patriotic Americans need to take the time to understand what is happening. I assure you, you will not like what you find. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, but necessary if we are to stand a chance in saving our country. Take the time to be informed and speak out against those who wish to change America from the land of the free to the home of the regulated and controlled. Do it now — before it’s too late.

Despite what happens, no matter how bad things get, do NOT fear bearring your Cross. Do NOT leave your faith. Stand WITH God, not against Him.

China Is Purchasing America

China Buying America?

The chinese government is purchasing parcels of American soil piece by piece with hassle-free landing capabilities at local airports. Below are links to a few articles for information. But first, my oppinion.

Are you people completely and utterly insane? 
From a National Security aspect they will be able to seemingly unnoticed fly in military weapons and personnel. The Chinese government continuously speaks of future problems with America. They have been in talks with Mexico to form a co-operative military attack plan on America. We are making it increasingly easier for them to destroy us and take over by literally handing over our land to the Chinese government. It will now be Chinese soil, not American.
If you think jobs are going to be prevalent, you are sadly mistaken. These will be walled-in, guarded, self-sustaining Chinese communities. A few Americans may be able to find work, but not nearly as many as the government may lead you to believe.
From a Biblical standpoint, this is opening the doors for one of the prophecied global battles. China is communist, communists are atheist, the government is the religion and the ruler is the god; therefore making them spawns of Satan. It is mentioned in the Bible Israel (the people, not the nation) will be attacked. If you trace the travels of the original tribes of Israel (which will be the subject of a future article), you see descendants of all tribes, as well as Gentiles, are here in America. The battlefield for the battle before the war is now being drawn as China continues to be handed American soil by our Marxist leader currently hijacking the once great office of POTUS. You may know him as Mr. Barack Hussein Obama.

When Obama promised “Change”, you blind and ignorant fools who voted for him should have asked for details of this “Change”. It may have saved us from the complete destruction of America from within the Marxist in office is causing. Read the articles linked below and research Project 60.

Back when the CSA lost to the union, they vowed the Confederacy will return, the South Will Rise Again. Well, I say come on already. If there was ever a time for the return of the CSA, for true Americans to say enough is enough, the time is now. I believe we all see what happens when people blindly and ignorantly obey government and allow Big Government to form and take over. Big Government always has and always will lead to horrible living conditions for the people and poverty for all, except for government officials. The CSA were onto something when they said NO to centralized, big government. The CSA believed in a de-centralized federal government; giving more power where it belongs, the PEOPLE!
(If anyone feels the CSA were all about racism, you dont know who the CSA was. Research it. The truth will surprise you)

Government, God, and Homosexuality

Government, God, and Homosexuality

As we all know, New York State just passed the legalization of homosexual marriage. To understand what really happened here, we must know what homosexuality is and what God says about. 
The definition is as follows:
homosexual
of, relating to, or characterized by a tendency to direct sexual desire toward another of the same sex

Homosexuality
erotic activity with another of the same sex

What does God say? 
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Leviticus 18:22

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Leviticus 20:13

Now that we understand what homosexuality is, lets talk about it for a minute. 

The legalization of homosexual marriage in NYS is taking effect nationwide as well as globally. It’s safe to assume we will soon see legal homosexual marriages everywhere. That would be one thing if it stays only as that, seen as ok by government. 

But I ask you what will happen now? Will the government take it upon themselves to enter into the faith?

Over 97% of American churches are incorporated under 501(c)3. Upon signing the documents, you agree to all current as well as future rules and regulations. One such statement being agreed to, is if you break the contract or a law set forth, you are open to either be shut-down or taken over by the government. In which case a government official is assigned to your establishment to run it as they see fit. 
Now, if a homosexual couple asks a particular church to marry them, and are denied, that church can now be shutdown or taken over. Do you feel the government should have that ability?

It is a known fact many “Christian” ministers and churches are heretics and hypocrites. Though, there are true Christians out there. A Christian minister, or a minister of any faith, should not have to be forced to enact on a behavior that goes against their Spiritual beliefs. A True Christian minister cannot and will not allow themself to perform a homosexual marriage, in turn giving them the right to a form of adultery, under God. 

The argument whether homosexuality is a choice or a born sexual desire is irrelevant. Homosexuals are divided on that same argument. Fact is, your actions are your choice. Whether it be you take part in a heterosexual or homosexual relationship, it is your choice to do so. Gods children are not homosexual and will not take part in a homosexual relationship. To live along the narrow-path God has laid is difficult, but not impossible. All that needs to be done is for you to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and ask Him to help you. You do not have to walk the path alone. Jesus will guide you, if you ask for His help. 

There are two types of man on this planet. Gods children and spawns of Satan. Anyone who is a homosexual and is a child of Gods is lost. They must be guided back to God, not shunned. Homosexuality is a mental disorder that can be cured. It is the responsibility of True Christians to guide the lost back to God. Homosexuals are lost and need guidance. 

Homosexuals as a populace are also being used as a tool for the elite. Homosexuality is a sin. It is a tool used by Satan to take Gods children away from God. The elite has been taking steps to outlaw Christianity. It started with God leaving our schools, workplace, and our homes. Now they are aiming to use the fact that True Christians will not marry homosexuals to further their cause of ridding themselves of the threat Christianity poses to their agenda of a one world government and one world religion. The elite views Christianity as a threat because Christianity can and will shed light into their darkness. 

If the government wishes to acknowledge homosexual behavior and marriage it should go no farther. They should not have the right to force a spiritually inclined individual or establishment to change their beliefs simply becausr the government says so. Spiritual Messiah Ministries and myself will not change our beliefs nor will we be silenced simply because the government says so. What the government says means nothing. The government is not God, they are not Divine beings. Jesus Christ and God the Father is my God. Jesus Christ is the only being that has any affect on my spiritual beliefs and this ministry. The government is not Jesus Christ, therefore what the government says on terms of Spirituality means nothing. It is not the governments place to play God.

It is our duty, as Christian brothers and sisters, to come together. To unite as a family. To guide the lost back to God. We must help the homosexuals realize the err of their ways, the sin be committed, and guide them back to God. 

We also must realize where this legalization of homosexual marriages is heading in in the bigger picture, the grander scheme, and must not allow it to reach that point. 

Homosexuality is a disease created by Satan to destroy Christianity. Christians united contain enough light to destroy Satan. It is time now Christians everywhere unite and once and for all destroy Satan. The first step in ridding our family of Satan is to bring our Brothers and Sisters back to God. Help them find their way back home. These poor souls need more guidance than most. They can be saved, if only more Christians would take the time to help homosexuals conquer the disease given them by Satan. If they are children of God, they will hear His voice and come home.

Fight Against Christianity In US Begins?

Fight Against Christianity Begins in US?

Its truly Hell on Earth when Anti-Christian’s are in office attacking Christians with the aim at making Christianity illegal. News coverage is below. The term “radical” is used to describe both Christians and Muslims. Lets make sure we understand the term. Here is the definition:
Main Entry: radical
Function: noun
Date: 1641
1 a : a root part b : a basic principle : foundation

Main Entry: rad·i·cal·ism 
Pronunciation: \ˈra-di-kə-ˌli-zəm\
Function: noun
Date: 1820
1 : the quality or state of being radical
2 : the doctrines or principles of radicals

Now that we understand the term “radical”, Muslims are also said to be a race. Muslim is NOT a race. You have White, Black, Arab, Asian, etc Muslims as you do Christians. Not all Muslims are Arab, not all Arabs are Muslim. If you are going to suggest Muslim is a race, same should be said of ALL religion and faith-based beliefs. 

That being said, read the news coverage below, be aware of whats happening, do NOT allow this to be the start of Christianity becoming illegal. Stand up, dont keep sitting there.

Democrat Congresswoman Calls For Investigation Of ‘Christian Militants’
http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/blog/?p=5367

Christians are the real threat, not Islam

At a congressional hearing on Muslim radicalization in U.S. prisons, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said that investigators needed to analyze Christian militants in America because they too might try to “bring down the country.”

In an exchange with witness Patrick Dunleavy, the former deputy inspector of the criminal intelligence unit, New York Department of Correctional Services, Rep. Jackson Lee mentioned the case of a man who blew up an abortion clinic and proposed that this perhaps was an attempt to undermine U.S. law that allows a woman to procure an abortion.

Rep. Lee then said, “As we look to be informational, we should include an analysis of how Christian militants or others might bring down the country. We have to look broadly, do we not?”

Dunleavy answered: “I don’t know that Christian militants have foreign country backing or foreign country financing.” Lee then said, “I don’t think that’s the issue. The issue is whether or not their intent is to undermine the laws of this nation. And I think it is clear that that is the case. So it’s not — your distinction is not answering the question.”

From CNS News
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said at a June 15, 2011 hearing that the committee was formed to fight threats against the United States posed by radical Islam. (CNSNews.com/Penny Starr)
(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Texas) likened “Christian militants” to Islamic radicals in a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, suggesting they posed a comparable threat to the rule of law in the United States.
At the same hearing, a witness told the committee that the conversion of U.S. prison inmates to radical Islam is an “evolving threat” to national security.
Michael Downing, the head of counter-terrorism and special operations at the Los Angeles Police Department, was one of three witnesses who testified at the hearing on Muslim radicalization called by Rep. Peter King, a New York Republican.

But Democrats on the committee condemned the proceedings as “racist” because of its focus on Muslims. They said the hearing should focus on broader issues, including gangs, unfair sentencing practices that target young black men, and other extremists, including white supremacists.
King rebuffed those criticisms, telling Democrats that they controlled the Homeland Security Committee for four years, yet they did not call one hearing on any of the issues they claimed should be part of Wednesday’s hearing.
“Suddenly this issue emerges when we start talking about Muslim radicalization,” King said. “The purpose of this committee is to combat Islamic terrorism because that is the terrorist threat to this country,” King said.
In his prepared testimony, the LAPD’s Downing said nearly 300 people are spending time in federal prisons on terrorism-related charges, including nearly two dozen al-Qaeda-linked terrorists who were involved in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, the 1998 East African embassy bombings, the 1999 millennial plot to bomb the Los Angeles International Airport and the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole.

Patrick Dunleavy, a retired deputy inspector of the criminal intelligence unit with the New York Department of Correctional Services, said at the June 15, 2011 hearing that the recruitment of inmates to Jihad was a reality and steps need to be taken to better monitor inmates’ interactions while in prison. 
(CNSNews.com/Penny Starr)
Another witness testified that many prison inmates who are jailed for lower-level crimes emerge from prison “committed to Jihad” because of their contact with Muslim inmates.
“Every one of them, while incarcerated, was exposed to extremist ideology through literature, visitors, volunteers, and clergy with ties to terrorist organizations or extremists and/or known terrorists who were also doing time in prison,” said Patrick Dunleavy, retired deputy inspector general with the criminal intelligence unit at New York Department of Correctional Services.
Rep. Laura Richardson (D-Calif.) grilled Dunleavy on the definition of the world “radicalize” and said that “various groups,” including white supremacists, also have been radicalized in U.S. prisons.
Richardson criticized the hearing for focusing only on Muslim radicalization: “I actually believe that the focus of one particular group on the basis of race or religion can be deemed as racist and as discriminatory.”  She said a hearing singling out one group on the basis of race or religion “is flawed and should not be done in the House of Representatives.”
But Rep. King, the committee chair, said he “disagreed 100 percent” with Richardson. He noted that the Homeland Security Committee was formed to investigate terrorist threats following the attack by radical Islamists on Sept. 11, 2001.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee expressed “angst” about the hearing and compared radicalized Muslims to what she called “radical Christian militants.”

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) criticized the focus of the June 15, 2011 hearing, saying that ‘radical Christian militants’ pose a threat to the United States. 
(CNSNews.com/Penny Starr)
Jackson Lee cited the case of Verne Jay Merrell, one of three men described by prosecutors as “extremist” and “paramilitary,” who was sentenced to life in prison for setting off bombs near a Spokane, Washington, newspaper office and an abortion clinic.
Jackson Lee described Merrell as a “Christian militant.”
“Mr. Dunleavy, are you familiar with the Christian militant?”
“Yes I am,” Dunleavy answered.
“Can one say that they might possibly want to undermine this country?” Jackson Lee asked. “Because right now, constitutionally, the right for women to choose (abortion) is a constitutional right.
“People disagree with it, but here’s an individual attempting to undermine the protections that are given to women,” Jackson Lee continued. “Would you suggest that that might be compared to trying to undermine this country? That’s a possibility, is it not?”
Dunleavy responded that anyone who kills in the name of God is an ideologue, but that he did not believe Christian militants were connected to foreign groups that pose a threat to U.S. security.
“I don’t think that’s the issue,” Jackson Lee said. “The issue is whether or not their intent is to undermine the laws of this country. And I think it is clear that that is the case,” she said.

Some Comments on this topic:

Maurizme

I wonder if Ms. Jackson Lee is Christian – she supposedly represents the state of Texas, which I truly doubt because Texas is smack in the heart of the Bible belt.  Her Christian constituents might want to consider voting her out of office.  In addition, she needs to leave the whole religious thing out of the militant behavior question.  As a data point, there are humans streaming over the border that are probably non-religious, but militant, and want to overthrow our country! You know, I think she’s as sharp as a bowling ball.  Just vote NO when she wants a renewal on that Congressional seat.  Please!

Sick of the race/Muslim card!

Read the follwoing two sections tha were copied and pasted straight from the article.  Do you see the double talk and double standard? I am sick of the race card and the Muslim card. It is Muslisms trying to kill us, not Christians!

Richardson criticized the hearing for focusing only on Muslim radicalization: “I actually believe that the focus of one particular group on the basis of race or religion can be deemed as racist and as discriminatory.” 

But Democrats on the committee condemned the proceedings as “racist” because of its focus on Muslims. They said the hearing should focus on broader issues, including gangs, unfair sentencing practices that target young black men, and other extremists, including white supremacists.

Mrs. Jackson Lee graduated from a high school in Jamaica and is originally from Queens, NY, I think it is time that we shipped her back to NY.

lonestarlady

Sheila Jackson-Lee is another Socialist Democrat who wants to see America fall.  I hope one day that the Patriots of this country will demand that every Radical liberal, Progressive, Marxist, Socialist, & Communist be rounded up and deported from our wonderful country.  I wonder if Mrs. Jackson-Lee would love the Muslims so much if she were to live under Sharia Law and be made to wear a burka?  This socialist needs to be voted out of office immediately.

joejohnson043

Look up Yuri Bezmenov video from the 80s, he’s defected former KGB, and describes how our country got into the mess we are today.  The results of demoralization attack the Soviets started in the 60s.  Slow process, but its plan was to make us complete dumbasses like this representative.  When you watch the vid, remember it was recorded in the mid 80s…..

joejohnson043

Jackson Lee said. “The issue is whether or not their intent is to undermine the laws of this country”….
so, would she apply this definition to illegal aliens as well?  Of course not…..

Stars9texashockey

Continually embarrassed that she’s from the great state of Texas—how in the hell can her constituents be so stupid as to continually re-elect her?  Never mind, rhetorical question.  Racist, left wing radicals.

Jacqueleen

When have we read in our present day that Christians beheaded an infidel?When have we read in our present day that Christians have performed honor killings within their own families?
When have we read in our present day that Christians have married children and sexually molested them?
When have we read in our present day that Christians hate all those who disagree with them and want them killed?
When have we read in our present day that Christians have performed suicide bombings and killed innocent people?
 
It is quite apparent that liberals dismiss the grave nature of what the Islamist terrorists are doing to innocent people, i.e., until they do it to one of them!!!!
Lord, take the veil off liberals’ eyes.

Zofi4uall

Too bad that Jared Loughner didn’t chose to ambush this disgusting idiot Jackson instead of Mrs. Gifford. He could have tons of people forgiving him.

Gifford wasn’t enough of a radical leftist democrat, ‘progressives’ throughout history have been known for purging their party…..

…and to think…the black race really believe the demonrats are for them. I used to think the american black race as very christian and beautifully spiritual. now i see them as haters, thugs, anti christian, anti american complainers sold out to the party of death…the demonrats.

lonestarlady

Not all of our Black Americans are like this, only the ignorant vote for people like Mrs. Jackson-Lee.

Meowhiss

Can you image the mentality that voted her into office?!?! These people are only mouthpieces of the extreme left AND THAT IS WHAT IS BRINGING THIS COUNTY DOWN! The further we drift away  form our Judeo-Christian beliefs the more we suffer.  We suffer social, economically, and morally.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Texas), a person of questionable character,  should vacation in an Islamic country for about three months.  Then return and retract her slanderous accusation against Christians who are proactive in the political process.  She has certainly crossed the line.  If she does not make a retraction maybe she should be likened to an Islamic fundamentalist extremist.

Sandy21620

I can not recall the last time i heard a report of a Christian extremist, who strapped a bomb to his or her chest, and went running into a crowd, yelling “JESUS ROCKS” before detonating.
 Now, Muslim extremists …

Sbliz1

Jackson-Lee is a radical black believer who is using the new black descriptive word for white people, “Christian Militants”, thus taking the focus off the real issue…black Muslim terrotists. This is the radical black approach to shifting the focus to watching white christians and exposing them as domestic terrorists. Get some guts America and watch the radical black manuevers to radicalize white America.

Great Grandma

Why isn’t anyone demanding that Sheila Jackson Lee provide proof of even one Christian terrorist? 

She’s obviously an bomb throwing idiot.

desertmedic193

People like these clowns really make me wish the South would have won.

cajunwarthog

That woman, SJL, has the shown, very often, how “self centered,
uninformed, RACIST and anti christian” she is. Her train of
thought is that of a unschooled person. Her lack of knowledge in
world events, current affairs and American liberties makes me wonder at the level of brain matter she has confined in that head of hers. I know SJL can read, but she does not comprehend. How sad other
“elected” have to have a dimwit like SJL around them. 

Surely,
SJL brings the “class average” down considerably. This story really ruined my morning coffee.

Churchill

Yea, are they going to confuse the definition of Militant with Militia?

This has also been set aside and forgotten that whites had been slaves too.

If you have a poisonous spyder on one side of you, you don’t call attention to the cockroach on the other side of you. You kill the spider then deal with the cockroach.  Unless of course you want the spider to hurt someone.  Is that simple enough for you Ms. Jackson?

Mel shearin

sheila jackson must be jesse jackson’s cousin they both think alike like an idiot! isn’t it funny that people like ms jackson whom work for the devil and believe in the devil always hate people that love GOD and always are looking for an excuse to blame CHRISTIANS to expand their evil like a woman’s right to commit murder! Hey ms jackson a woman doesn’t have any rights when it comes to doing something with her body! She was created by GOD and she doesn’t have any say in the decision of having an abortion! If she has one than she has committed murder in the eyes of our heavenly father! put that in your pea size brain and change your way of thinking ms idiot!

Chauncey Freeman

The reprehensible Sheila Jackson Lee needs to be held accountable for her anti-Christian bigotry and/or at very least challenged to site more than a token example of “Christian Militancy”.  If it is “racist” to suggest that Islamic folk are becoming radicalized is it not also racist to suggest that there is such a thing as “Christian Militants”?  

One thing is for certain, there is a domestic enemy who wields much more power than any Muslim, White Supremacist, or Christian Militant and is much more likely to “undermine the laws of this country” and it is Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who’s record of Afro-Centric legislating is as racist as any antebellum southern Democrat ever was and who’s indecorous and incendiary rhetoric has done more to divide Americans by race than the worst segregationist.  Beware the enemy within.  

CONTACT REP. LEE AND DEMAND SHE APOLOGIZE FOR HER ANTI-CHRISTIAN DEFAMATION.  Be firm and polite and NEVER threaten.

/”A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” Cicero 58 Before Christ

Obama Osama Drama

Osama bin Laden Dead

Bin Ladens death does show a victory for America. But where is the proof? Do the families who lost loved ones on 9/11 not deserve proof of this? The right for closure?
Why is Obama not releasing the photos? To appease the islam? Why are we trying to appease these barbarians? If indeed these terrorists are in fact a rogue element and the islam as a whole, why are we appeasing them? Muslims who feel these terrorists are not muslim and suggest islam is a peaceful religion, why do you not get infront of the media and state you will not allow these rogue elements to any longer control you? Why instead do you mourn Osama bin Ladens death?

This alleged death of Osama is being used to merely cover up issues Obama does not wish the public to concern themselves with. One such issue being his legal (or illegal) citizenship and authority as POTUS. He is going to milk this for all its worth in hope to get re-elected in 2012. Do not allow yourselves to be fooled. He is no American Patriot. Obama is against everything America stands for. He is trying to dismantle the constitution. He is in direct opposition of Americas founding fathers. A still bigger threat to the people is the fact that he is against everything Jesus Christ taught. 
Jesus taught unity of His people, peace and love for His people. Why is Obama against such a teaching? Could it because he is a muslim, believes himself to be the 12th imam? Therefore making him a strong candidate for being the anti-Christ. 

Why else would he be trying so hard to appease the Muslim Brotherhood and “radical” islam? If Obama is indeed a true American, then why wont he release the photos of Osama? Theyre to graphic? Children play videogames where peoples brains are eatin, guts and blood fly everywhere. And the photos are to graphic?

Whats with all the I’s, Me’s, and My’s? The fact he changed it afterward means nothing. He said it how he meant it. What makes him feel he deserves credit? It was his mission? Etc. 
This was an American mission acted out by the American military. The SEAL’s decided on the kill shot, not Obama. Obama wanted him alive. The SEAL team deserves the credit, not Obama. Obama is clearly trying to make America all about him. What gave Obama the right to suggest this was his mission? What gives him the right to make America in his image, rather than the American image?

People of America, we urge you to not be fooled by Obama. We urge you to see passed what appears to be one good accomplishment and remember all his wrongs and lies, be aware of future wrongs and lies. 
Obama’s whole life is one big lie. Do not fall for the lies, demand the photos. Demand proof binLaden is in fact dead. 

Osama was an evil SOB and we are glad to hear his alleged death acted out by a SEAL’s team that no longer exists. However, Obama is far more evil. 

Thousands of people died on 9/11 and have been unable to recieve a proper burial. Yet Obama orders the proper burial of Osama? Does that sound like an American Christian patriot to you? Ofcourse not. Why doesnt it? Because Obama is an anti-Christian muslim and an American hater who was raised by a muslim and an anti-American communist.

SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; JUDGE; DIPLOMAT; ONE OF TWO SIGNERS OF THE BILL OF RIGHTS; SECOND PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.1

The Holy Ghost carries on the whole Christian system in this earth. Not a baptism, not a marriage, not a sacrament can be administered but by the Holy Ghost. . . . There is no authority, civil or religious – there can be no legitimate government but what is administered by this Holy Ghost. There can be no salvation without it. All without it is rebellion and perdition, or in more orthodox words damnation.2

Without religion, this world would be something not fit to be mentioned in polite company: I mean hell.3

The Christian religion is, above all the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity.4

Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited. . . . What a Eutopia – what a Paradise would this region be!5

I have examined all religions, and the result is that the Bible is the best book in the world.6

John Quincy Adams

SIXTH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES; DIPLOMAT; SECRETARY OF STATE; U. S. SENATOR; U. S. REPRESENTATIVE; “OLD MAN ELOQUENT”; “HELL-HOUND OF ABOLITION”
My hopes of a future life are all founded upon the Gospel of Christ and I cannot cavil or quibble away [evade or object to]. . . . the whole tenor of His conduct by which He sometimes positively asserted and at others countenances [permits] His disciples in asserting that He was God.7

The hope of a Christian is inseparable from his faith. Whoever believes in the Divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures must hope that the religion of Jesus shall prevail throughout the earth. Never since the foundation of the world have the prospects of mankind been more encouraging to that hope than they appear to be at the present time. And may the associated distribution of the Bible proceed and prosper till the Lord shall have made “bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God” [Isaiah 52:10].8

In the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior. The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity.9

Samuel Adams

SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; “FATHER OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION”; RATIFIER OF THE U. S. CONSTITUTION; GOVERNOR OF MASSACHUSETTS
I . . . [rely] upon the merits of Jesus Christ for a pardon of all my sins.10

The name of the Lord (says the Scripture) is a strong tower; thither the righteous flee and are safe [Proverbs 18:10]. Let us secure His favor and He will lead us through the journey of this life and at length receive us to a better.11

I conceive we cannot better express ourselves than by humbly supplicating the Supreme Ruler of the world . . . that the confusions that are and have been among the nations may be overruled by the promoting and speedily bringing in the holy and happy period when the kingdoms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may be everywhere established, and the people willingly bow to the scepter of Him who is the Prince of Peace.12

He also called on the State of Massachusetts to pray that . . .

the peaceful and glorious reign of our Divine Redeemer may be known and enjoyed throughout the whole family of mankind.13
we may with one heart and voice humbly implore His gracious and free pardon through Jesus Christ, supplicating His Divine aid . . . [and] above all to cause the religion of Jesus Christ, in its true spirit, to spread far and wide till the whole earth shall be filled with His glory.14
with true contrition of heart to confess their sins to God and implore forgiveness through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ our Savior.15

MILITARY OFFICER; SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; JUDGE; GOVERNOR OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
Called on the people of New Hampshire . . . to confess before God their aggravated transgressions and to implore His pardon and forgiveness through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ . . . [t]hat the knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ may be made known to all nations, pure and undefiled religion universally prevail, and the earth be fill with the glory of the Lord.16

Let us enter on this important business under the idea that we are Christians on whom the eyes of the world are now turned… [L]et us earnestly call and beseech Him, for Christ’s sake, to preside in our councils. . . . We can only depend on the all powerful influence of the Spirit of God, Whose Divine aid and assistance it becomes us as a Christian people most devoutly to implore. Therefore I move that some minister of the Gospel be requested to attend this Congress every morning . . . in order to open the meeting with prayer.18

A letter to his daughter:

You have been instructed from your childhood in the knowledge of your lost state by nature – the absolute necessity of a change of heart and an entire renovation of soul to the image of Jesus Christ – of salvation through His meritorious righteousness only – and the indispensable necessity of personal holiness without which no man shall see the Lord [Hebrews 12:14]. You are well acquainted that the most perfect and consummate doctrinal knowledge is of no avail without it operates on and sincerely affects the heart, changes the practice, and totally influences the will – and that without the almighty power of the Spirit of God enlightening your mind, subduing your will, and continually drawing you to Himself, you can do nothing. . . . And may the God of your parents (for many generations past) seal instruction to your soul and lead you to Himself through the blood of His too greatly despised Son, Who notwithstanding, is still reclaiming the world to God through that blood, not imputing to them their sins. To Him be glory forever!19
For nearly half a century have I anxiously and critically studied that invaluable treasure [the Bible]; and I still scarcely ever take it up that I do not find something new – that I do not receive some valuable addition to my stock of knowledge or perceive some instructive fact never observed before. In short, were you to ask me to recommend the most valuable book in the world, I should fix on the Bible as the most instructive both to the wise and ignorant. Were you to ask me for one affording the most rational and pleasing entertainment to the inquiring mind, I should repeat, it is the Bible; and should you renew the inquiry for the best philosophy or the most interesting history, I should still urge you to look into your Bible. I would make it, in short, the Alpha and Omega of knowledge.20

A letter to his son, James, attending Princeton University:

I flatter myself you will be what I wish, but don’t be so much flatterer as to relax of your application – don’t forget to be a Christian. I have said much to you on this head, and I hope an indelible impression is made.21
Charles Carroll

SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; SELECTED AS DELEGATE TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION; FRAMER OF THE BILL OF RIGHTS; U. S. SENATOR
On the mercy of my Redeemer I rely for salvation and on His merits, not on the works I have done in obedience to His precepts.22

Grateful to Almighty God for the blessings which, through Jesus Christ Our Lord, He had conferred on my beloved country in her emancipation and on myself in permitting me, under circumstances of mercy, to live to the age of 89 years, and to survive the fiftieth year of independence, adopted by Congress on the 4th of July 1776, which I originally subscribed on the 2d day of August of the same year and of which I am now the last surviving signer.23

I, Charles Carroll. . . . give and bequeath my soul to God who gave it, my body to the earth, hoping that through and by the merits, sufferings, and mediation of my only Savior and Jesus Christ, I may be admitted into the Kingdom prepared by God for those who love, fear and truly serve Him.24

Congress, 1854
The great, vital, and conservative element in our system is the belief of our people in the pure doctrines and the divine truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.25

Congress, U. S. House Judiciary Committee, 1854
Had the people, during the Revolution, had a suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity, that Revolution would have been strangled in its cradle… In this age, there can be no substitute for Christianity… That was the religion of the founders of the republic and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants.26

Rendering thanks to my Creator for my existence and station among His works, for my birth in a country enlightened by the Gospel and enjoying freedom, and for all His other kindnesses, to Him I resign myself, humbly confiding in His goodness and in His mercy through Jesus Christ for the events of eternity.27

[Governments] could not give the rights essential to happiness… We claim them from a higher source: from the King of kings, and Lord of all the earth.28

As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the system of morals and His religion as He left them to us, the best the world ever saw or is likely to see.30

The body of Benjamin Franklin, printer, like the cover of an old book, its contents torn out and stripped of its lettering and guilding, lies here, food for worms. Yet the work itself shall not be lost; for it will, as he believed, appear once more in a new and more beatiful edition, corrected and amended by the Author.31 (FRANKLIN’S EULOGY THAT HE WROTE FOR HIMSELF)

He called on the State of Massachusetts to pray that . . .

with one heart and voice we may prostrate ourselves at the throne of heavenly grace and present to our Great Benefactor sincere and unfeigned thanks for His infinite goodness and mercy towards us from our birth to the present moment for having above all things illuminated us by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, presenting to our view the happy prospect of a blessed immortality.32
And for our unparalleled ingratitude to that Adorable Being Who has seated us in a land irradiated by the cheering beams of the Gospel of Jesus Christ . . . let us fall prostrate before offended Deity, confess sincerely and penitently our manifold sins and our unworthiness of the least of His Divine favors, fervently implore His pardon through the merits of our mediator.33
And deeply impressed with a scene of our unparalleled ingratitude, let us contemplate the blessings which have flowed from the unlimited grave and favor of offended Deity, that we are still permitted to enjoy the first of Heaven’s blessings: the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 34
Alexander Hamilton

REVOLUTIONARY GENERAL; SIGNER OF THE CONSTITUTION; AUTHOR OF THE FEDERALIST PAPERS; SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY
Following his duel with Aaron Burr, in those final twenty four hours while life still remained in him, Hamilton called for two ministers, the Rev. J. M. Mason and the Rev. Benjamin Moore, to pray with him and administer Communion to him. Each of those two ministers reported what transpired. The Rev. Mason recounted:

[General Hamilton said] “I went to the field determined not to take his life.” He repeated his disavowal of all intention to hurt Mr. Burr; the anguish of his mind in recollecting what had passed; and his humble hope of forgiveness from his God. I recurred to the topic of the Divine compassion; the freedom of pardon in the Redeemer Jesus to perishing sinners. “That grace, my dear General, which brings salvation, is rich, rich” – “Yes,” interrupted he, “it is rich grace.” “And on that grace,” continued I, “a sinner has the highest encouragement to repose his confidence, because it is tendered to him upon the surest foundation; the Scrip¬ture testifying that we have redemption through the blood of Jesus, the forgiveness of sins according to the richness of His grace.” Here the General, letting go my hand, which he had held from the moment I sat down at his bed side, clasped his hands together, and, looking up towards Heaven, said, with emphasis, “I have a tender reliance on the mercy of the Al¬mighty, through the merits of the Lord Jesus Christ.” 35
The Rev. Benjamin Moore reported:

[I]mmediately after he was brought from [the field] . . . a mes¬sage was sent informing me of the sad event, accompanied by a request from General Hamilton that I would come to him for the purpose of administering the Holy Communion. I went. . . . I proceeded to converse with him on the subject of his receiving the Communion; and told him that with respect to the qualifications of those who wished to become partakers of that holy ordinance, my inquires could not be made in lan¬guage more expressive than that which was used by our [own] Church. – [I asked], “Do you sincerely repent of your sins past? Have you a lively faith in God’s mercy through Christ, with a thankful remembrance of the death of Christ? And are you disposed to live in love and charity with all men?” He lifted up his hands and said, “With the utmost sincerity of heart I can answer those questions in the affirmative – I have no ill will against Col. Burr. I met him with a fixed resolution to do him no harm – I forgive all that happened.” . . . The Communion was then administered, which he received with great devotion, and his heart afterwards appeared to be perfectly at rest. I saw him again this morning, when, with his last faltering words, he expressed a strong confidence in the mercy of God through the intercession of the Redeemer. I remained with him until 2 o’clock this afternoon, when death closed the awful scene – he expired without a struggle, and almost without a groan. By reflecting on this melancholy event, let the humble believer be encouraged ever to hold fast that precious faith which is the only source of true consolation in the last extremity of nature. [And l]et the infidel be persuaded to abandon his opposition to that Gospel which the strong, inquisitive, and comprehensive mind of a Hamilton embraced.36
One other consequence of Hamilton’s untimely death was that it permanently halted the forma¬tion of a religious society Hamilton had proposed. Hamilton suggested that it be named the Christian Constitutional Society, and listed two goals for its formation: first, the support of the Christian religion; and second, the support of the Constitution of the United States. This or¬ganization was to have numerous clubs throughout each state which would meet regularly and work to elect to office those who reflected the goals of the Christian Constitutional Society. 37

John Hancock

SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; PRESIDENT OF CONGRESS; REVOLUTIONARY GENERAL; GOVERNOR OF MASSACHUSETTS
Sensible of the importance of Christian piety and virtue to the order and happiness of a state, I cannot but earnestly commend to you every measure for their support and encouragement.38

He called on the entire state to pray “that universal happiness may be established in the world [and] that all may bow to the scepter of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the whole earth be filled with His glory.”39

He also called on the State of Massachusetts to pray . . .

that all nations may bow to the scepter of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that the whole earth may be filled with his glory.40
that the spiritual kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may be continually increasing until the whole earth shall be filled with His glory.41
to confess their sins and to implore forgiveness of God through the merits of the Savior of the World.42
to cause the benign religion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to be known, understood, and practiced among all the inhabitants of the earth.43
to confess their sins before God and implore His forgiveness through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.44
that He would finally overrule all events to the advancement of the Redeemer’s kingdom and the establishment of universal peace and good will among men.45
that the kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may be established in peace and righteousness among all the nations of the earth.46
that with true contrition of heart we may confess our sins, resolve to forsake them, and implore the Divine forgiveness, through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, our Savior. . . . And finally to overrule all the commotions in the world to the spreading the true religion of our Lord Jesus Christ in its purity and power among all the people of the earth.47

Patrick Henry

REVOLUTIONARY GENERAL; LEGISLATOR; “THE VOICE OF LIBERTY”; RATIFIER OF THE U. S. CONSTITUTION; GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA
Being a Christian… is a character which I prize far above all this world has or can boast.49

The Bible… is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed.50

Righteousness alone can exalt America as a nation. Whoever thou art, remember this; and in thy sphere practice virtue thyself, and encourage it in others.51

The great pillars of all government and of social life [are] virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible.52

This is all the inheritance I can give to my dear family. The religion of Christ can give them one which will make them rich indeed.53

Samuel Huntington

SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; PRESIDENT OF CONGRESS; JUDGE; GOVERNOR OF CONNECTICUT
It becomes a people publicly to acknowledge the over-ruling hand of Divine Providence and their dependence upon the Supreme Being as their Creator and Merciful Preserver . . . and with becoming humility and sincere repentance to supplicate the pardon that we may obtain forgiveness through the merits and mediation of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.54

James Iredell

RATIFIER OF THE U. S. CONSTITUTION; ATTORNEY GENERAL OF NORTH CAROLINA; U. S. SUPREME COURT JUSTICE APPOINTED BY PRESIDENT GEORGE WASHINGTON
For my part, I am free and ready enough to declare that I think the Christian religion is a Divine institution; and I pray to God that I may never forget the precepts of His religion or suffer the appearance of an inconsistency in my principles and practice.55

John Jay

PRESIDENT OF CONGRESS; DIPLOMAT; AUTHOR OF THE FEDERALIST PAPERS; ORIGINAL CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE U. S. SUPREME COURT; GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK
Condescend, merciful Father! to grant as far as proper these imperfect petitions, to accept these inadequate thanksgivings, and to pardon whatever of sin hath mingled in them for the sake of Jesus Christ, our blessed Lord and Savior; unto Whom, with Thee, and the blessed Spirit, ever one God, be rendered all honor and glory, now and forever. 56

Unto Him who is the author and giver of all good, I render sincere and humble thanks for His manifold and unmerited blessings, and especially for our redemption and salvation by His beloved Son. . . . Blessed be His holy name.57

Mercy and grace and favor did come by Jesus Christ, and also that truth which verified the promises and predictions concerning Him and which exposed and corrected the various errors which had been imbibed respecting the Supreme Being, His attributes, laws, and dispensations.58

By conveying the Bible to people . . . we certainly do them a most interesting act of kindness. We thereby enable them to learn that man was originally created and placed in a state of happiness, but, becoming disobedient, was subjected to the degradation and evils which he and his posterity have since experienced. The Bible will also inform them that our gracious Creator has provided for us a Redeemer in whom all the nations of the earth should be blessed – that this Redeemer has made atonement “for the sins of the whole world,” and thereby reconciling the Divine justice with the Divine mercy, has opened a way for our redemption and salvation; and that these inestimable benefits are of the free gift and grace of God, not of our deserving, nor in our power to deserve. The Bible will also [encourage] them with many explicit and consoling assurances of the Divine mercy to our fallen race, and with repeated invitations to accept the offers of pardon and reconciliation. . . . They, therefore, who enlist in His service, have the highest encouragement to fulfill the du¬ties assigned to their respective stations; for most certain it is, that those of His followers who [participate in] His conquests will also participate in the tran¬scendent glories and blessings of His Triumph.59

I recommend a general and public return of praise and thanksgiving to Him from whose goodness these blessings descend. The most effectual means of securing the continuance of our civil and religious liberties is always to remember with reverence and gratitude the source from which they flow.60

The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this world and in the next. Continue therefore to read it and to regulate your life by its precepts.61

[T]he evidence of the truth of Christianity requires only to be carefully examined to produce conviction in candid minds… they who undertake that task will derive advantages.62

Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.63

Thomas Jefferson

SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; DIPLOMAT; GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA; SECRETARY OF STATE; THIRD PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
The doctrines of Jesus are simple, and tend all to the happiness of man.64

The practice of morality being necessary for the well being of society, He [God] has taken care to impress its precepts so indelibly on our hearts that they shall not be effaced by the subtleties of our brain. We all agree in the obligation of the moral principles of Jesus and nowhere will they be found delivered in greater purity than in His discourses.65

I am a Christian in the only sense in which He wished anyone to be: sincerely attached to His doctrines in preference to all others.66

I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.67

JUDGE; MEMBER OF THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS; SIGNER OF THE CONSTITUTION; FRAMER OF THE BILL OF RIGHTS; PRESIDENT OF COLUMBIA COLLEGE; U. S. SENATOR

In an address to graduates:

You this day. . . . have, by the favor of Providence and the at¬tention of friends, received a public education, the purpose whereof hath been to qualify you the better to serve your Creator and your country. You have this day invited this au¬dience to witness the progress you have made. . . . Thus you assume the character of scholars, of men, and of citizens. . . . Go, then, . . . and exercise them with diligence, fidelity, and zeal. . . . Your first great duties, you are sensible, are those you owe to Heaven, to your Creator and Redeemer. Let these be ever present to your minds, and exemplified in your lives and conduct. Imprint deep upon your minds the principles of piety towards God, and a reverence and fear of His holy name. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom and its [practice] is everlasting [happiness] . . . . Reflect deeply and often upon [your] relations [with God]. Remember that it is in God you live and move and have your being, – that, in the language of David, He is about your bed and about your path and spieth out all your ways – that there is not a thought in your hearts, nor a word upon your tongues, but lo! He knoweth them al¬together, and that He will one day call you to a strict account for all your conduct in this mortal life. Remember, too, that you are the redeemed of the Lord, that you are bought with a price, even the inestimable price of the precious blood of the Son of God. Adore Jehovah, therefore, as your God and your Judge. Love, fear, and serve Him as your Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier. Acquaint yourselves with Him in His word and holy ordinances. . . . [G]o forth into the world firmly resolved neither to be allured by its vanities nor contaminated by its vices, but to run with patience and perseverance, with firmness and [cheerfulness], the glorious career of religion, honor, and virtue. . . . Finally, . . . in the elegant and expressive language are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” – and do them, and the God of peace shall be with you, to whose most gracious protection I now commend you, humbly imploring Almighty Goodness that He will be your guardian and your guide, your protector and the rock of your defense, your Savior and your God.69
James Kent

JUDGE; LAW PROFESSOR; “FATHER OF AMERICAN JURISPRUDENCE”
My children, I wish to talk to you. During my early and middle life I was, perhaps, rather skeptical with regard to some of the truths of Christianity. Not that I did not have the utmost respect for religion and always read my Bible, but the doctrine of the atonement was one I never could understand, and I felt inclined to consider as impossible to be received in the way Divines taught it. I believe I was rather inclined to Unitarianism; but of late years my views have altered. I believe in the doctrines of the prayer books as I understand them, and hope to be saved through the merits of Jesus Christ. . . . My object in telling you this is that if anything happens to me, you might know, and perhaps it would console you to remember, that on this point my mind is clear: I rest my hopes of salvation on the Lord Jesus Christ.70

A watchful eye must be kept on ourselves lest, while we are building ideal monuments of renown and bliss here, we neglect to have our names enrolled in the Annals of Heaven.72

I have sometimes thought there could not be a stronger testimony in favor of religion or against temporal enjoyments, even the most rational and manly, than for men who occupy the most honorable and gainful departments and [who] are rising in reputation and wealth, publicly to declare their unsatisfactoriness by becoming fervent advocates in the cause of Christ; and I wish you may give in your evidence in this way.73

James Manning
MEMBER OF THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS; PRESIDENT OF BROWN UNIVERSITY

I rejoice that the religion of Jesus prevails in your parts; I can tell you the same agreeable news from this quarter. Yesterday I returned from Piscataway in East Jersey, where was held a Baptist annual meeting (I think the largest I ever saw) but much more remarkable still for the Divine influences which God was pleased to grant. Fifteen were baptized; a number during the three days professed to experience a change of heart. Christians were remarkably quickened; multitudes appeared.74

And may God grant that His grace may really affect your heart with suitable impressions of His goodness. Remember that God made you, that God keeps you alive and preserves you from all harm, and gives you all the powers and the capacity whereby you are able to read of Him and of Jesus Christ, your Savior and Redeemer, and to do every other needful business of life. And while you look around you and see the great privileges and advantages you have above what other children have (of learning to read and write, of being taught the meaning of the great truths of the Bible), you must remember not to be proud on that account but to bless God and be thankful and endeavor in your turn to assist others with the knowledge you may gain.75(to his daughter)

[P]ublic utility pleads most forcibly for the general distribution of the Holy Scriptures. Without the Bible, in vain do we increase penal laws and draw entrenchments around our institutions.78

In the case Respublica v. John Roberts,80 John Roberts was sentenced to death after a jury found him guilty of treason. Chief Justice McKean then told him:

You will probably have but a short time to live. Before you launch into eternity, it be¬hooves you to improve the time that may be allowed you in this world: it behooves you most seriously to reflect upon your past conduct; to repent of your evil deeds; to be incessant in prayers to the great and merciful God to forgive your manifold transgressions and sins; to teach you to rely upon the merit and passion of a dear Redeemer, and thereby to avoid those regions of sorrow – those doleful shades where peace and rest can never dwell, where even hope cannot enter. It behooves you to seek the [fellowship], advice, and prayers of pious and good men; to be [persistent] at the Throne of Grace, and to learn the way that leadeth to happiness. May you, reflecting upon these things, and pursuing the will of the great Father of light and life, be received into [the] company and society of angels and archangels and the spirits of just men made perfect; and may you be qualified to enter into the joys of Heaven – joys unspeakable and full of glory!81

There must be religion. When that ligament is torn, society is disjointed and its members perish… [T]he most important of all lessons is the denunciation of ruin to every state that rejects the precepts of religion.82

Your good morals in the army give me sincere pleasure as it hath long been my fixed opinion that virtue and religion are the great sources of human happiness. More especially is it necessary in your profession firmly to rely upon the God of Battles for His guardianship and protection in the dreadful hour of trial. But of all these things you will and I hope in the merciful Lord.83

Jedidiah Morse

HISTORIAN OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION; EDUCATOR; “FATHER OF AMERICAN GEOGRAPHY”; APPOINTED BY SECRETARY OF STATE TO DOCUMENT CONDITION OF INDIAN AFFAIRS
To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoys. All efforts made to destroy the foundations of our Holy Religion ultimately tend to the subversion also of our political freedom and happiness. In proportion as the genuine effects of Christianity are diminished in any nation… in the same proportion will the people of that nation recede from the blessings of genuine freedom… Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government – and all the blessings which flow from them – must fall with them. 84

I am constrained to express my adoration of the Supreme Being, the Author of my existence, in full belief of His Providential goodness and His forgiving mercy revealed to the world through Jesus Christ, through whom I hope for never ending happiness in a future state.88

I believe the Bible to be the written word of God and to contain in it the whole rule of faith and manners.89

[W]e do not grieve as those who have no… resurrection to a life immortal. Here the believers in Christianity manifest their superior advantages, for life and immortality were brought to light by the gospel of Jesus Christ [II Timothy 1:10]. Prior to that revelation even the wisest and best of mankind were involved in doubt and they hoped, rather than believed, that the soul was immortal.92

I have thrown myself, reeking with sin, on the mercy of God, through Jesus Christ His blessed Son and our (yes, my friend, our) precious Redeemer; and I have assurances as strong as that I now owe nothing to your rank that the debt is paid and now I love God – and with reason. I once hated him – and with reason, too, for I knew not Christ. The only cause why I should love God is His goodness and mercy to me through Christ.94

I am at last reconciled to my God and have assurance of His pardon through faith in Christ, against which the very gates of hell cannot prevail. Fear hath been driven out by perfect love.95

[I] have looked to the Lord Jesus Christ, and hope I have obtained pardon.96

[I] still cling to the cross of my Redeemer, and with God’s aid firmly resolve to lead a life less unworthy of one who calls himself the humble follower of Jesus Christ.97

Benjamin Rush

SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; SURGEON GENERAL OF THE CONTINENTAL ARMY; RATIFIER OF THE U. S. CONSTITUTION; “FATHER OF AMERICAN MEDICINE”; TREASURER OF THE U. S. MINT; “FATHER OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS UNDER THE CONSTITUTION”
The Gospel of Jesus Christ prescribes the wisest rules for just conduct in every situation of life. Happy they who are enabled to obey them in all situations! . . . My only hope of salvation is in the infinite tran¬scendent love of God manifested to the world by the death of His Son upon the Cross. Noth¬ing but His blood will wash away my sins [Acts 22:16]. I rely exclusively upon it. Come, Lord Jesus! Come quickly! [Revelation 22:20]98

I do not believe that the Constitution was the offspring of inspiration, but I am as satisfied that it is as much the work of a Divine Providence as any of the miracles recorded in the Old and New Testament.99

By renouncing the Bible, philosophers swing from their moorings upon all moral subjects… It is the only correct map of the human heart that ever has been published.100

[T]he greatest discoveries in science have been made by Christian philosophers and . . . there is the most knowledge in those countries where there is the most Christianity.101

[T]he only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government is the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by means of the Bible.102

The great enemy of the salvation of man, in my opinion, never invented a more effective means of limiting Christianity from the world than by persuading mankind that it was improper to read the Bible at schools.103

[C]hristianity is the only true and perfect religion; and… in proportion as mankind adopt its principles and obey its precepts, they will be wise and happy.104

The Bible contains more knowledge necessary to man in his present state than any other book in the world.105

The Bible, when not read in schools, is seldom read in any subsequent period of life… [T]he Bible… should be read in our schools in preference to all other books because it contains the greatest portion of that kind of knowledge which is calculated to produce private and public happiness.106

I believe that there is one only liv¬ing and true God, existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, the same in substance, equal in power and glory. That the Scriptures of the Old and New Tes¬taments are a revelation from God, and a complete rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy Him. . . . That He made man at first perfectly holy; that the first man sinned, and as he was the public head of his posterity, they all became sinners in consequence of his first transgres¬sion, are wholly indisposed to that which is good and inclined to evil, and on account of sin are liable to all the miseries of this life, to death, and to the pains of hell forever. I believe that God . . . did send His own Son to become man, die in the room and stead of sinners, and thus to lay a foundation for the offer of pardon and salvation to all mankind, so as all may be saved who are willing to accept the Gospel offer. . . . I believe a visible church to be a congregation of those who make a credible profession of their faith in Christ, and obedi¬ence to Him, joined by the bond of the covenant. . . . I believe that the sacraments of the New Testament are baptism and the Lord’s Supper. . . . I believe that the souls of believers are at their death made perfectly holy, and immediately taken to glory: that at the end of this world there will be a resurrec¬tion of the dead, and a final judgment of all mankind, when the righteous shall be publicly acquitted by Christ the Judge and admitted to everlasting life and glory, and the wicked be sentenced to everlasting punishment.107

God commands all men everywhere to repent. He also commands them to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and has assured us that all who do repent and believe shall be saved… [G]od… has absolutely promised to bestow them on all these who are willing to accept them on the terms of the Gospel – that is, in a way of free grace through the atonement. “Ask and ye shall receive [John 16:24]. Whosoever will, let him come and take of the waters of life freely [Revelation 22:17]. Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out” [John 6:37].108

[I]t is the duty of all to acknowledge that the Divine Law which requires us to love God with all our heart and our neighbor as ourselves, on pain of eternal damnation, is Holy, just, and good. . . . The revealed law of God is the rule of our duty.109

True Christians are assured that no temptation (or trial) shall happen to them but what they shall be enabled to bear; and that the grace of Christ shall be sufficient for them.110

“The volume which he consulted more than any other was the Bible. It was his custom, at the commencement of every session of Congress, to purchase a copy of the Scriptures, to peruse it daily, and to present it to one of his children on his return.”111

Richard Stockton

JUDGE; SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
[A]s my children will have frequent occasion of perusing this instrument, and may probably be particularly impressed with the last words of their father, I think it proper here not only to subscribe to the entire belief of the great and leading doctrines of the Christian religion, such as the being of God; the universal defection and depravity of human nature; the Divinity of the person and the completeness of the redemption purchased by the blessed Savior; the necessity of the opera¬tions of the Divine Spirit; of Divine faith accompanied with an habitual virtuous life; and the universality of the Divine Providence: but also, in the bowels of a father’s affection, to exhort and charge [my children] that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, that the way of life held up in the Christian system is calculated for the most complete happiness that can be enjoyed in this mortal state, [and] that all occasions of vice and immorality is injurious either im¬mediately or consequentially – even in this life.112

Thomas Stone

SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; SELECTED AS A DELEGATE TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION
Shun all giddy, loose, and wicked company; they will corrupt and lead you into vice and bring you to ruin. Seek the company of sober, virtuous and good people… which will lead [you] to solid happiness.113

Joseph Story

U. S. CONGRESSMAN; “FATHER OF AMERICAN JURISPRUDENCE”; U. S. SUPREME COURT JUSTICE APPOINTED BY PRESIDENT JAMES MADISON
One of the beautiful boasts of our municipal jurisprudence is that Christianity is a part of the Common Law. There never has been a period in which the Common Law did not recognize Christianity as lying at its foundations.114

I verily believe that Christianity is necessary to support a civil society and shall ever attend to its institutions and acknowledge its precepts as the pure and natural sources of private and social happiness.115

Caleb Strong

DELEGATE AT THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION TO FRAME THE U. S. CONSTITUTION; RATIFIER OF THE CONSTITUTION; U. S. SENATOR; GOVERNOR OF MASSACHUSETTS
He called on the State of Massachusetts to pray that . . . all nations may know and be obedient to that grace and truth which came by Jesus Christ.116

Zephaniah Swift

U. S. CONGRESSMAN; DIPLOMAT; JUDGE; AUTHOR OF AMERICA’S FIRST LEGAL TEXT (1795)
Jesus Christ has in the clearest manner inculcated those duties which are productive of the highest moral felicity and consistent with all the innocent enjoyments, to which we are impelled by the dictates of nature. Religion, when fairly considered in its genuine simplicity and uncorrupted state, is the source of endless rapture and delight.117

Charles Thomson

SECRETARY OF THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS; DESIGNER OF THE GREAT SEAL OF THE UNITED STATES; ALONG WITH JOHN HANCOCK, THOMSON WAS ONE OF ONLY TWO FOUNDERS TO SIGN THE INITIAL DRAFT OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE APPROVED BY CONGRESS
I am a Christian. I believe only in the Scriptures, and in Jesus Christ my Savior.118

Jonathan Trumbull

JUDGE; LEGISLATOR; GOVERNOR OF CONNECTICUT; CONFIDANT OF GEORGE WASHINGTON AND CALLED “BROTHER JONATHAN” BY HIM
The examples of holy men teach us that we should seek Him with fasting and prayer, with penitent confession of our sins, and hope in His mercy through Jesus Christ the Great Redeemer.119

Principally and first of all, I bequeath my soul to God the Creator and giver thereof, and my body to the earth to be buried in a decent Christian burial, in firm belief that I shall receive the same again at the general resurrection through the power of Almighty God, and hope of eternal life and happiness through the merits of my dear Redeemer Jesus Christ.120

He called on the State of Connecticut to pray that . . .

God would graciously pour out His Spirit upon us and make the blessed Gospel in His hand effectual to a thorough reformation and general revival of the holy and peaceful religion of Jesus Christ.121
George Washington

JUDGE; MEMBER OF THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS; COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE CONTINENTAL ARMY; PRESIDENT OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION; FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES; “FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY”
You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are.122

While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.123

The blessing and protection of Heaven are at all times necessary but especially so in times of public distress and danger. The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier, defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country.124

I now make it my earnest prayer that God would… most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of the mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion.125

Daniel Webster

U. S. SENATOR; SECRETARY OF STATE; “DEFENDER OF THE CONSTITUTION”
[T]he Christian religion – its general principles – must ever be regarded among us as the foundation of civil society.126

Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens.127

[T]o the free and universal reading of the Bible… men [are] much indebted for right views of civil liberty.128

The Bible is a book… which teaches man his own individual responsibility, his own dignity, and his equality with his fellow man.129

Noah Webster

REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIER; JUDGE; LEGISLATOR; EDUCATOR; “SCHOOLMASTER TO AMERICA”
[T]he religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ and His apostles… This is genuine Christianity and to this we owe our free constitutions of government.130

The moral principles and precepts found in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws.131

All the… evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.132

[O]ur citizens should early understand that the genuine source of correct republican principles is the Bible, particularly the New Testament, or the Christian religion.133

[T]he Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children under a free government ought to be instructed. No truth is more evident than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.134

The Bible is the chief moral cause of all that is good and the best corrector of all that is evil in human society – the best book for regulating the temporal concerns of men.135

[T]he Christian religion… is the basis, or rather the source, of all genuine freedom in government… I am persuaded that no civil government of a republican form can exist and be durable in which the principles of Christianity have not a controlling influence.136

John Witherspoon

SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; RATIFIER OF THE U. S. CONSTITUTION; PRESIDENT OF PRINCETON
[C]hrist Jesus – the promise of old made unto the fathers, the hope of Israel [Acts 28:20], the light of the world [John 8:12], and the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth [Romans 10:4] – is the only Savior of sinners, in opposition to all false religions and every uninstituted rite; as He Himself says (John 14:6): “I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me.”137

[N]o man, whatever be his character or whatever be his hope, shall enter into rest unless he be reconciled to God though Jesus Christ.138

[T]here is no salvation in any other than in Jesus Christ of Nazareth.139

I shall now conclude my discourse by preaching this Savior to all who hear me, and entreating you in the most earnest manner to believe in Jesus Christ; for “there is no salvation in any other” [Acts 4:12].140

It is very evident that both the prophets in the Old Testament and the apostles in the New are at great pains to give us a view of the glory and dignity of the person of Christ. With what magnificent titles is He adorned! What glorious attributes are ascribed to him!… All these conspire to teach us that He is truly and properly God – God over all, blessed forever!141

[I]f you are not rec¬onciled to God through Jesus Christ – if you are not clothed with the spotless robe of His righteousness – you must forever perish.142

[H]e is the best friend to American liberty who is the most sincere and active in promoting true and undefiled religion, and who sets himself with the greatest firmness to bear down profanity and immorality of every kind. Whoever is an avowed enemy of God, I scruple not to call him an enemy to his country.143

Oliver Wolcott
SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; MILITARY GENERAL; GOVERNOR OF CONNECTICUT

Through various scenes of life, God has sustained me. May He ever be my unfailing friend; may His love cherish my soul; may my heart with gratitude acknowledge His goodness; and may my desires be to Him and to the remembrance of His name….May we then turn our eyes to the bright objects above, and may God give us strength to travel the upward road. May the Divine Redeemer conduct us to that seat of bliss which He himself has prepared for His friends; at the approach of which every sorrow shall vanish from the human heart and endless scenes of glory open upon the enraptured eye. There our love to God and each other will grow stronger, and our pleasures never be dampened by the fear of future separation. How indifferent will it then be to us whether we obtained felicity by travailing the thorny or the agreeable paths of life – whether we arrived at our rest by passing through the envied and unfragrant road of greatness or sustained hardship and unmerited reproach in our journey. God’s Providence and support through the perilous perplexing labyrinths of human life will then forever excite our astonishment and love. May a happiness be granted to those I most tenderly love, which shall continue and increase through an endless existence. Your cares and burdens must be many and great, but put your trust in that God Who has hitherto supported you and me; He will not fail to take care of those who put their trust in Him….It is most evident that this land is under the protection of the Almighty, and that we shall be saved not by our wisdom nor by our might, but by the Lord of Host Who is wonderful in counsel and Almighty in all His operations.A NAME=”R144″>144

Islam in America

Muslims Must Become Americans of the Islamic Faith

BY JERRY MCCONNELL ON FEBRUARY 27TH, 2011

Man did my blood pressure ever shoot up when I read this piece of aggravation that Newsmax published on Sunday (of all days) February 20, 2011 titled, “Extremist Cleric:  Time for Islamic State in America”.
My first thoughts were, “I think it’s time for Islams to get out of America and go back to the sand and flea pits that they came from.  We allow them to enter our country and the first thing you know is they want to take it over with their bloodthirsty and illiterate mindset of KILL, KILL, KILL.
“Go home you beasts; sure we have some intra-family squabbles here in this country, but we don’t behave as neanderthalic as you murderers posing as peace lovers do.  We have respect for our women and in many cases they are the heads of the family. Take your Sharia Law and vamoose.  We don’t need or want you to be telling us what to do in OUR home country.
“Just because that usurper in the White House goes around kissing the rings of some of your leaders, it doesn’t mean he speaks for the great majority of us.  Maybe some other misguided or deranged individuals would see it that way, but our uber ultra majority would put you on boats with a one way ticket to the sand dunes of Africa or west of the Nlle.”
Whoever it was that convinced this mentally impaired extremist Muslim cleric,  Anjem Choudary, that he had a right to commit to an Islamic state within the borders of the United States should be put in a cell at Guantanamo Bay along with Choudary where they can be “rehabilitated.”  How dare these disciples of evil and death come into OUR country with their hands out for alms and then make DEMANDS of us?  They should be transported on any vehicle of transport due eastward for at least 6,000 miles to the sandy plains of the Middle East.
They have no country of their own so they have to sponge on other peoples’ territories, just like a swarm of long-lost and unmissed mangy relatives who suddenly appear and want to build a campground in your back yard.  They should go back to where their forebears still reside or did dwell at one time.
They do not belong in the company of literate and caring people.  To just move in and demand to be accommodated and, even worse, to establish their own code of conduct and laws (Sharia) so they can kill to their heart’s content anyone who doesn’t conform to their rules is simply not an option.
Their laws and even their religious beliefs are that we Christians and Jews who abide here now, will eventually all have to be killed; presumptively, in their favorite and juicy method of lopping off heads and allowing them to roll in the dirt before they kick them like footballs.
Could that in any way, manner or form be determined to be sane conduct?  Is that not insanity in the worst degree?  And for that reason alone we should not allow these people to create their own communities within our communities.  In time they will claim autonomy for that area and they will become a sovereign entity not subject to any laws or rules of the United States and its Constitution.
We true American citizens, of whatever religious persuasions as may be present, neither can nor should accept these people as equals or as “peace-loving” because they just simply are not.  With them their only criterion for existence is to kill all others who are not exactly like them.
America is not the place for them.  We should tell minister Choudary or whatever his official title is, “No, you can not settle here if you expect to abide by your laws alone.  If you promise to completely and faithfully abide by our laws and the United States Constitution we will consider allowing you to assimilate yourselves into our communities.  But you will not be allowed to set up any boundaries for habitation of your kind only so as to create a de-facto community of your own.  That will be PROHIBITED AND ENFORCED.”
And further Mr. Choudary, you have been quoted as saying, “that Americans are the biggest criminals in the world today.”  It will be necessary for you sir, to completely disavow that statement in a very public setting with many of your clan of followers present before you personally are allowed residency in these United States.  We may be criminals in your eyes Mr. Choudary but you sir, are potential murderers in our eyes and we will not allow you to follow this tenet of your fanatical religion.
The world has seen within the past few weeks, the three major European countries of Great Britain, Germany and France declare that multiculturalism is a failure when attempted with these Islamic people who when banded together as a totally inclusive Islamic community are an invitation to the ruination of the host country which can not be allowed.
America, we must not let other than what I have stated above to be allowed to prevail in this matter.  I personally do not trust ANY ONE of these people who would go to any lengths to accomplish their missions, up to and including mass murder.
But as a country we all have to be vigilant and see that official American rules are established for these people in exception to our normal conduct with foreigners because of their histories of not being truthful with those not of their religious faith and the disasters they can wrought on a country.
We must stand firm America; to weaken our resolve will be to die.

Is America a Christian nation?

Im really getting upset now. We at SMM are greatly hurt by what we keep hearing. People have the audacity to say America is not a Christian nation, does not have Christian values, etc. But wait, people that are saying that are atheists, muslims, and the anti-american regime currently in office. 
Well if the history books arent good enough for ya, maybe a few AMERICAN songs will help you see it. Please take a minute to read the lyrics to the following songs written from Americas birth to present times. 

  Battle Hymn of the Republic

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord:
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.
(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.
I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps,
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps:
His day is marching on.
(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His day is marching on.
I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel:
“As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal;
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel,
Since God is marching on.”
(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Since God is marching on.
He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat:
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.
(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on.
In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.
(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
While God is marching on.
He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave,
He is Wisdom to the mighty, He is Succour to the brave,
So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of Time His slave,
Our God is marching on.
(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on.
Biblical references

The song alludes to several Biblical passages. The first verse draws either on the Book of Revelation (which describes an angel casting grapes into “the great winepress of the wrath of God” (14:19), and later describes the Word of God who wields “a sharp sword” and “treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God” (19:15)) or Isaiah 63:3 (“A wine press I trod alone, and from the peoples, none was with Me; and I trod them with My wrath, and I trampled them with My fury, and their life blood sprinkled on My garments, and all My clothing I soiled”). The phrase “His terrible swift sword” appears in Isaiah 27:1 (KJV) (“In that day the LORD will take His terrible, swift sword and punish Leviathan, the swiftly moving serpent, the coiling, writhing serpent. He will kill the dragon of the sea.”) The third verse refers to YHWH Elohim’s (God’s) statement in Genesis 3:15 that the woman’s (Eve’s) offspring will step on and bruise (or crush) the head of the serpent (and/or its seed), while the serpent will strike at his heel. Indirectly, this also refers to Revelation(Apocalypse in Catholic/Orthodox bibles) 12:1-10, where a woman (often interpreted as being The Blessed Virgin Mary and/or the newly formed Christian Church and/or the ancient Israel) bears a child while engaged in struggle with a dragon/serpent. The dragon/serpent is defeated. The fourth verse alludes to 2 Corinthians 5:10, which states that “we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” The fifth verse refers to the doctrine that Christians can be made holy through the death of Christ (Colossians 1:21–22). The sixth verse refers to the Earth as the footstool of God, a claim that appears in Isaiah 66:1, Matthew 5:35, and Acts 7:49.

    My Country Tis’ of Thee

“My Country, ‘Tis of Thee”, also known as “America”, is an American patriotic song, whose lyrics were written by Samuel Francis Smith. The melody is that of the British national anthem, “God Save the Queen”, although Smith encountered it by way of a German adaptation. The song served as a de facto national anthem of the United States before the adoption of “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the official anthem.[2]
1
My country, ’tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
From every mountainside
Let freedom ring!
2
My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.
3
Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom’s song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.
4
Our fathers’ God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom’s holy light,
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King.
5 (added to celebrate Washington’s Centennial)[4]
Our joyful hearts today,
Their grateful tribute pay,
Happy and free,
After our toils and fears,
After our blood and tears,
Strong with our hundred years,
O God, to Thee.
Additional verses by Henry van Dyke

6
We love thine inland seas,
Thy groves and giant trees,
Thy rolling plains;
Thy rivers’ mighty sweep,
Thy mystic canyons deep,
Thy mountains wild and steep,–
All thy domains.
7
Thy silver Eastern strands,
Thy Golden Gate that stands
Fronting the West;
Thy flowery Southland fair,
Thy North’s sweet, crystal air:
O Land beyond compare,
We love thee best!

Additional Abolitionist Lyrics 1843 A. G. Duncan Jarius Lincoln, [ed.] Antislavery Melodies: for The Friends of Freedom. Prepared for The Hingham Antislavery Society. Words by A. G. Duncan. (Hingham, [Mass.]: Elijah B. Gill, 1843), Hymn 17 6s & 4s (Tune – America.) pages 28–29. Some of these verses can be heard in the Arizona State University recording of the Antislavery Ensemble.

8
My country,’ tis of thee,
Stronghold of slavery, of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Where men man’s rights deride,
From every mountainside thy deeds shall ring!
9
My native country, thee,
Where all men are born free, if white’s their skin;
I love thy hills and dales,
Thy mounts and pleasant vales;
But hate thy negro sales, as foulest sin.
10
Let wailing swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees the black man’s wrong;
Let every tongue awake;
Let bond and free partake;
Let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.
11
Our father’s God! to thee,
Author of Liberty, to thee we sing;
Soon may our land be bright,
With holy freedom’s right,
Protect us by thy might, Great God, our King.
12
It comes, the joyful day,
When tyranny’s proud sway, stern as the grave,
Shall to the ground be hurl’d,
And freedom’s flag, unfurl’d,
Shall wave throughout the world, O’er every slave.
13
Trump of glad jubilee!
Echo o’er land and sea freedom for all.
Let the glad tidings fly,
And every tribe reply,
“Glory to God on high,” at Slavery’s fall.

   Star Spangled Banner

O! say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
’Tis the star-spangled banner, O! long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
A home and a country, should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation.
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the Heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust;”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

      God Bless America

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.
God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home
God bless America, My home sweet home.

Originally, the final two lines of the song were, God bless America my own sweet home, my home sweet home.

    With God on Our Side

Oh my name it is nothin’
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the Midwest
I’s taught and brought up there
The laws to abide
And the land that I live in
Has God on its side.

Oh the history books tell it
They tell it so well
The cavalries charged
The Indians fell
The cavalries charged
The Indians died
Oh the country was young
With God on its side.

The Spanish-American
War had its day
And the Civil War too
Was soon laid away
And the names of the heroes
I’s made to memorize
With guns on their hands
And God on their side.

The First World War, boys
It came and it went
The reason for fighting
I never did get
But I learned to accept it
Accept it with pride
For you don’t count the dead
When God’s on your side.

When the Second World War
Came to an end
We forgave the Germans
And then we were friends
Though they murdered six million
In the ovens they fried
The Germans now too
Have God on their side.

I’ve learned to hate Russians
All through my whole life
If another war comes
It’s them we must fight
To hate them and fear them
To run and to hide
And accept it all bravely
With God on my side.

But now we got weapons
Of the chemical dust
If fire them we’re forced to
Then fire them we must
One push of the button
And a shot the world wide
And you never ask questions
When God’s on your side.

In a many dark hour
I’ve been thinkin’ about this
That Jesus Christ
Was betrayed by a kiss
But I can’t think for you
You’ll have to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot
Had God on his side.

So now as I’m leavin’
I’m weary as Hell
The confusion I’m feelin’
Ain’t no tongue can tell
The words fill my head
And fall to the floor
If God’s on our side
He’ll stop the next war.

Thankyou for taking your time reading the lyrics to the above. If American history, American people writing about America in their songs, etc doesnt enable you to see America is a Christian nation built on Christian values; quite frankly you dont belong in America. No matter your race, faith, or creed, there was a time an American was proud to say he/she is part of America and had no problem admitting we are a christian nation. Other faiths embraced us because we allowed them to come to a Christian nation and practice Their faith. What thanks do we get? Biological jihad. If ya dont like America or the values America was built on, GET OUT!! Stop trying to re-write history. Us TRUE Americans will NOT allow it.

Is America really Free? Is Christianity safe?

Im getting disgusted with people referring to the armed forces and conditions in other nations to show “freedom” in the U.S.  I have many friends in the military, Im former USMC myself. They all will tell you we are NOT free. America is just better at hiding it. 

We are supposed to have freedom of speech. Patriot Act took care of that. Freedom of assembly, Patriot Act took care of that. Under the Patriot Act just about every american citizen can be classified a domestic terrorist. Under the Patriot Act we can wind up with wire-taps on our phones, bugs in our computers, emails monitored, without a warrant and without being notified. 
So tell me, are we free?
We cant assemble without first being granted a permit. If you amass “too many followers, too quickly” on a social site, you are liable for deletion and a government investigation. 
So tell me, are we free?
The internet is said to be the last “free” source of true freedom of speech. Despite this, governments around the world control the internet; could turn it on and off or limit access as they please. Now thanks to Mr. Obama, America is following suit. It hasnt been determined if the Pentagon or DHS will take charge of the internet, but there has been a team of some 2,000 “internet police” compiled. Anyone that says anything against them will be monitored, deleted, and arrested. In saying that, my blog and others like it may only have a limited time here. Yes, i am a minister preaching truth via my ministry blogsite and i must fear deletion. Does that sound like freedom of speech to you?
So tell me, are we free?

We are supposed to have freedom of religion. Am i right in saying that? Well, Mr. Obama came out and said he is muslim. Only corrected himself after news reporter questioned when he converted. In the past few years christians here in America have been getting persecuted. No christians allowed to start frats in college. Military no longer permitted to end prayers in Jesus’ name. Christians get charged with “hate-crimes” for arguments or disputes with muslims. Many schools no longer allow Bible in school. Muslims allowed to start frats. Muslims skate free for harassing, raping, murderering others (mainly christians). Muslims get away with burning our Bible, urinating on our Cross, hanging anti-christian artwork in smithsonian. Qu’ran permitted in EVERY american school. Do you see anything wrong with that picture?  Is this the beginning of the illegality of Christianity?
So tell me, are we free?

America was built on freedom protected by the Constitution. That same freedom no longer exists. That same Constitution is being under-mined by the government and their team of anti-christian congressman being led by a muslim president. 
So tell me, are we free?

I am a Patriot to my nation, not my government. I am a patriot to what America was, the values our fore-fathers built this nation on. I am not, however, in agreement with or a patriot of where america is heading. If we dont use our constitutional right to revolt while we still have it, itll be too late. 

Everyone is stating how angry we are, well prove it. Stand up and ACT!

I personally will NOT take the islamization of America laying down. I personally will NOT sit back and watch Christianity get outlawed. I will NEVER convert to another faith because the government said so. 
What will YOU do?

Give me LIBERTY or give me DEATH. I rather die free then live a slave.
