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.

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.

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)

Tracking Israel

Tracking Israel
It is important to know where the tribes of Israel migrated to because in order to be able to make any sense out of the many prophecies about what will happen to national Israel just before Christ’s return, it is necessary to have some understanding of who and where the tribes of Israel are today. The names of the land are modern names we can all lookup on the map to see where Israel is today.

(Maps of the ‘Kingom of Judah and Israel’ and of the migration of the Tribes of Israel are below the article)

Tribe Possible Identity
Asher Republic of South Africa

Benjamin Norway

Dan Ireland

Ephraim Britain and U.K.
(Joseph)

Gad Germany

Issachar Finland

Judah Nation of Israel, scattered among
other Israelite nations.

Levi Scattered among other Israelite nations.

Manasseh United States of America
(Joseph)

Naphthali Sweden

Reuben France

Simeon Scattered among other Israelite nations.

Zebulon Holland

The Apostles were sent first to preach to the tribes of Israel, and then to the Gentiles. Now lets take a look at where the Apostles travelled so that we may determine the distance the tribes travelled and where they ended up.

Simon Peter: British Isles, Babylon (Western Mediterranean)

Paul: Antioch, Syria, Rome, Italy, Britian, British Isles, Spain, France, Mesopatamia, Eastern Mediterranean

Andrew: Scythia (Todays Russia), Cappadocia, Upper Galatia, Bithynia, Chalcedon, Nicodemia, Amastris, Sinope, Amynsus, Abasgi (in Caucasus (Modern Scots and Anglo-Saxons)), Sarmatia (Asiatic Scythia (Asia Minor)), Cherson

Simon the Zealot: Egypt, Cyrene, Mauritania, Libya, Western British Isles (Ireland)

James, Son of Alphaeus: Spain, Britian, Ireland

Thomas: Parthia (Southern shores of Caspian Sea), Medes, Persia, Carmans, Hyrcani, Bactrians – (todays Iran and Afghanistan), India

Bartholomen: Parthia (southern shores of Caspian Sea), Medes, Persia, Carmans, Hyrcani, Bactrians – (todays Iran and Afghanistan), India, Armenia, Upper Phrygia (todays Turkey)

Jude: Assyria, Mesopotamia

Philip: Scythia (todays Russia), Asia Minor

Matthew: Parthia (southern shores of Caspian Sea), Asiatic Ethiopia

Matthias: Romania, Macedonia

John: France

As we can see, due to persecution and being ran out of their land, the tribes of Israel travelled some great distances to ensure safety for themselves. It is also, in my oppinion, fair to suggest that Christians are in fact the Israelite peoples. Regardless the name of the religion, God calls His people Israel. Jesus Christ came to round up His people, Israel, and bring them back to the Truth as many have gone astray. It was not until after His death that followers of Christ were given the title of Christian. Upto that point, they were calling themselves Messiah-followers or Christ-followers. Either way you look at it, Christians are of the same brethren, Israel.

Going by immigration to the United States of America, I believe it is fair to conclude members of each tribe of Israel reside in the United States.

The twelve tribes of Israel are named after the sons of Jacob (Jacob was renamed Israel in Genesis 32). Levi, though one of the sons of Israel, is usually omitted from Biblical passages listing the tribes. This is because the Levites were priests consecreated to serve God. Instead of giving them an inheritance of land in Palestine, God gave the Levites the tithes and offerings paid by the other tribes of Israel (Numbers 18, etc.).
The Kingdom of Israel, also known as the Northern Ten Tribes of Israel, is composed of the tribes of Asher, Dan, Ephraim, Gad, Issachar, Manasseh, Naphtali, Reuben, Simeon and Zebulon. The Kingdom of Judah, also known as the Southern Kingdom, is composed of the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and the priestly tribe of Levi.

Not all Israelites are Jewish. In the Bible it speaks of the division of tribes. Parts of the tribes that made up the Kingdom of Judah left their belief in God to worship idols.

2 Chronicles 11:11-17 KJV
And he fortified the strong holds, and put captains in them, and store of victual, and of oil and wine. And in every several city he put shields and spears, and made them exceeding strong, having Judah and Benjamin on his side. And the priests and the Levites that were in all Israel resorted to him out of all their coasts. For the Levites left their suburbs and their possession, and came to Judah and Jerusalem: for Jeroboam and his sons had cast them off from executing the priest’s office unto the Lord: And he ordained him priests for the high places, and for the devils, and for the calves which he had made. And after them out of all the tribes of Israel such as set their hearts to seek the Lord God of Israel came to Jerusalem, to sacrifice unto the Lord God of their fathers. So they strengthened the kingdom of Judah, and made Rehoboam the son of Solomon strong, three years: for three years they walked in the way of David and Solomon.

So you see some Israelites became paganistic. Many pagan beliefs spawned other faiths, including Islam. Mohammed chose Allah, the moon god, because that was his favorite of the 360 gods his family and society worshipped. Though he had much influence from the Catholics in the region as well. So it is very possible that many participants of other faiths, including Islam, are Israelites. They need to hear Gods Word so that they may be saved and come home to the Father. Islam is the religion of Satan (as pointed out in the article “the Bible and Islam”), therefore they are rightfully so our enemy as they are not of Israel. However, during the conquest of Islam throughout history many were forced to convert to Islam.

Considering this fact, it is fair to suggest a small number of our brethren are held captive in the grasps of Satans counterfeit religion. It is our duty then, to preach the Gospel to any and all Muslims and offer them a safe way out of Islam (as converting out of Islam is punishable by death under Sharia law), and bring our brethren back to God before they end up suffering eternal damnation with Satan and his demons. There are only two types of people on this planet. Gods and Satans. Islam is a false religion that doubles as Satans army. Many believe the battle is only spiritual. The battle is as much physical as it is spiritual. Do not allow yourselves to be decieved.

You may have a hard time accepting the information set forth in this article, but that is only because Western Christianity allowed itself to become perverted. There is only but one Truth and one way to be Christian.

Before one can understand how to be Christian or what a Christian is, you must know and understand the roots of Christianity. That is the purpose of this and future articles, Spiritual Messiah Ministries, and the Spiritual Truth movement; to return Christianity to its roots and save our brethren from paganistic views and falsehoods.

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

A Call to All Christians

Do we truly have freedom of religion? Are we seeing the beginning of the illegality of Christianity? 

Its a well known fact in the muslim nations, christians are being persecuted. Now in rediculous numbers. China does not allow christian churches that arent ok’ed by the state. In England, a 13 year annual Easter march has been banned; a christian was told to remove his cross from work vehicle (so company isnt viewed as a christian organization). In America christians cant freely speak our theology without worrying who might get offended or if we’ll be arrested. That is only to name a few ways christianity is being persecuted. 

Spiritual Messiah Ministries believes this to be disgraceful. If other faiths can be proud and open, why cant christians? Whats wrong with wearing a cross? Whats wrong with hanging a cross from the rear-view mirror or a decal on your window in your vehicle? We feel nothing. Every faith has a symbol of their faith they display for religious or spiritual purposes. Christians have the cross. We feel it is disrespectful to treat christians beliefs like yesterdays news. We feel it is disrespectful to fire someone because they wore a cross to work. We feel its disrespectful to not give one a job because they are a christian. Since when is it wrong to be a christian?

Spiritual Messiah Ministries is calling ALL christians to come together for the sake of christianity in the name of Jesus Christ. Catholics, Protestants, and non-denominational christians alike. We ask you to put your differences aside, theological disputes aside, and join us in a nation-wide, if not international, movement to revive Christianity. Not just American christians but christians of the world. Christianity is being persecuted and slowly murdered. We need to pull together and show the worlds governments God is still alive. Through Jesus we will not allow christian persecution any longer. It stops here with us. When we march, we will be marching united under God for every christian across the globe. 

This is a very serious matter. Many would like to believe persecution wont happen here. Its America, we’re free. The fact is, American christians are being persecuted against. Subtly as to try and keep it as unseen as possible. 
Well we say enough. Before it goes any further we say enough. Before it becomes a crime to be christian, we say enough. 

We ask that this cry for christian unity to reach every christian household, every christian church. We ask that every christian join us in the movement to revive Christianity to let the world know christianity is not going anywhere. We ask that every christian join us on Ascension Day to let the world know you cannot silence nor kill God. 

If you would like to help us organize this event or would like more information on the event, you may contact us via email at SpiritualMessiahMinistries@gmail.com  You may also contact Rev. Dr. Red direct via ReverendDrRed@gmail.com

We look forward to hearing from everyone and seeing you all unite under Jesus Christ for the sake of Christianity. Please join us to keep Christianity alive. 

If you write or play Christian music, contact us immediately. We could use your skills for the entertainment. This movement is to be like a christian “Woodstock”. The ultimate christian revival in these times of heart-ache and moral decline. America was at its strongest when God was included in every aspect of daily life. Any empire or nation, at its peak, was due to a daily relationship with God. Ask God to leave, the empire fell. Right now America and Europe alike, and many other nations, are seperated from God. The nations are in a state of moral distress. Satans armies are moving in and taking over. 

Its time to allow God back in our lives. In every aspect. We must call to Jesus, tell Him we have not forgotten about Him. Let Him know we are still with Him. Invite Jesus back into our daily lives. 

Yes, going to church on sunday is good. But a relationship with God is not a 3 hour occasion one day a week. A proper relationship is supposed to be 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year. 

Please help us achieve our goal at a truly historic revival movement in uniting ALL christians across the nation and the world. Please help us revive faith in Jesus and refuel christianity.
