Genocide: New Billboard Rebukes Abortions for Black Babies

http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/02/23/new.york.billboard/index.html?hpt=C2

New York (CNN) — A billboard has sparked controversy in New York after an anti-abortion group erected a sign focused exclusively on African-American abortion rates.

The sign — which was paid for by an organization called Life Always — reads: “The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb.”

The billboard — located roughly a half mile from a Planned Parenthood facility in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood — features an African-American girl…”

The Bible teaches plainly that pregnant women are “with child,” not some inhuman fetus. Paganism has always been associated with death and murder (as Humanism), and we have certainly arrived at this state in America. Humanists planned to use public school to indoctrinate children, and their plan has worked. When will Christians wake up? The Humanists were already laughing as early as 1930., at how gullible Christians are in regard to public school. Things like abortion will continually plague America unless we awake to the destructive nature of public schooling. But Americans have become addicted to divorce, having children through fornication, and mothers working outside the home. May we repent before it tis too late.

Pastor Chuck Smith Offers Bad Abortion Counsel

http://bryankemper.com/2011/02/11/calvary-chapel-founder-advises-woman-to-abort-her-child-on-radio-show-pastor-chuck-smith-tries-to-use-scripture-to-justify-child-killing/#comment-6417

What is sadly interesting is that Pastor Smith’s proof-text was the woman caught in adultery, where the Lord tells her He doesn’t “condemn” her. In that same passage, Jesus tells the woman that her adultery was SIN: go and SIN no more. The non-condemnation refers to giving her the death penalty – not justifying her sin! The death penalty was a civil law for the Theocracy of Israel, and Israel had been enslaved and was no longer functioning as its own nation. Secondly, though it does not say specifically, I am sure Jesus had seen repentance in the woman, for we are told continually that Jesus knows the hearts of people. What we must ask is whether or not Jesus BEFORE the adultery would have counseled the woman to commit the sin, by telling her that she would not be condemned.

By using words like fetus (and even abortion), a culture of death is gradually accepted, even among Christians. And the response will always be, regardless of how far it goes, that we need to be reasonable and have common sense, and that we should not be Pharisees, etc. May Brother Smith awaken.

Arabic Classes Coming to Mansfield, Texas School?

http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2011/02/07/mandatory-arabic-classes-coming-to-mansfield/

Parents are upset that the school received a government grant but the intentions to teach Arabic language, culture and religion, was hidden for some time. Others are vexed that schools are permitted to teach Islam but not Christianity. The truth of the matter is that parents should not be relying on the state to teach their children. God never gave any parent the right to give their children to the state for an indoctrination into Humanism. To see the real intentions behind the public school system in America, read Charles F. Potter’s ‘Humanism: A New Religion” (1930). Your eyes will be opened to the real agenda and purpose, and you will see that the Godless state of America has been planned.

The Origin Of Valentine’s Day And The Heart Symbol

Jeremiah 10:3 For the customs of the people are vain…

What is the origin of Valentine’s Day and the popular heart symbol? They are certainly Pagan:

“[Valentine is a] Roman saint…His festival is celebrated on February 14. The practice of sending love tokens on this date apparently originated in a Roman custom of boys drawing girls’ names by lot in honor of Juno Februalis [a goddess] at the Lupercalia festival which was celebrated at about the same date.”
(“Grolier’s Encyclopedia,” 1960)

“In the first place, there is an utter destitution of authentic records concerning this alleged saint – bishop, and martyr [Valentine]…But further: – that pernicious substitution of Christianized heathenism, for pagan heathenism, which took place in the fourth century, is signalized in this particular instance, in a manner which should peremptorily have forbidden the admission of the name in a Protestant Calendar. It was a miserable folly, at the first, which perpetuated and sanctioned the usages attaching to the worship of Juno Februalis, by putting a martyr in the room of the goddess…”
(Isaac Taylor, “Ancient Christianity,” 1812)

“Februo” in Greek is “purgo” in Latin. Februalis was the Roman goddess of purifications (for women). In Greece, she was called Juno. Sacrifices were made to her for the dead in the month of February. During the Lupercalia festival, animals were sacrificed, and priests ran naked in the streets, etc. It was a very important festival in early Rome. Mark Antony (master of the Luperci College of Priests) chose the Lupercalia festival to offer the crown to Julius Caesar. During this festival, women also offered cakes to the queen of heaven:

Jeremiah 7:18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.

It angers God when His people follow the idolatrous customs of the wicked. He forbids His people to even mention the name of other gods (Exodus 23:13), except to reprove them.

Brewster’s, “Dictionary of Phrase and Fable” (1898), believes that the name “Valentine” was actually chosen because of its similarity with “galentin” (meaning a woman’s lover or seducer).

All of this stems from the days when Roman Catholics, such as pope Gregory, decided to use pagan customs and practices to pacify the pagans. The names of the gods and goddesses were changed in an attempt to justify the adoption of heathen practices. Roman Catholicism merges paganism and counterfeit Christianity, and has historically enforced this corruption by the sword of the state.

The very “heart” that is associated with Valentine’s Day, and is found almost everywhere as a symbol of love, is actually the ancient symbol of Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and debauchery. His sign was the leopard spot (similar to the heart symbol). Leopard skins were worn in homage to Dionysus. It is a symbol that has been associated with fornication and lust since ancient times. In the worship of Dionysus (i.e. Bacchus, Satan), the people would stir themselves into a frenzy, with wild dancing, as animals were ripped apart among the mad mobs.

Hislop, in “The Two Babylons,” reveals that Nimrod (the ancient type of the Antichrist in Genesis 10, whose kingdom was Babel or Babylon) actually means “leopard tamer.” From ancient times, the leopard was associated with the worship of Nimrod, who was called different things in different cultures after the division at the Tower of Babel. We see this in Egypt, where he is called Osiris; and he is pictured as arrayed in leopard’s skin, with his priests arrayed in the same manner. In Greece, he is called Dionysus (or Bacchus among the Romans; and Tammuz in the Bible – see Ezekiel 8:14); and he is shown riding upon a leopard, dressed in leopard’s skin, etc.

It is sad thing in our day that the leopard print is now showing up on clothes, purses, etc. of young girls. Even if someone did not understand the ancient connections to Nimrod/Dionysus, this type of dress, even today, is associated with harlots and lewd women. Is it a “cute” thing to dress children as pimps and prostitutes? Many Sodomite, worldly clothes designers think so. And they are laughing all the way to the bank. Should Christians allow their daughters to dress as if they walked out of a lewd bar?

Roman Catholics believe the heart symbol was derived from a vision of the “sacred heart.” Nevertheless, even in modern culture, the heart is often linked to Cupid. And who is Cupid? Hislop reveals him to be another form of Nimrod, the leopard tamer (called a mighty hunter in the Bible).

The modern Valentine heart is linked to the worship of Dionysus in another way. 2 Macc. 6:7, while certainly not part of the Holy Scriptures, nevertheless offers some historical insight concerning Dionysus (or Bacchus). During the “four hundred silent years” between the Testaments, the Jews were compelled to join in the procession of this false god carrying Ivy. Dionysus is often pictured with an Ivy wreath. In all of these ancient images, the Ivy leaves are in the exact shape as Valentines (the heart symbol). Cupid is shown with this same Ivy garland. Vishnu in India wears the same heart symbol:

“There is another hieroglyphic connected with Bacchus that goes not a little to confirm this – that is, the Ivy branch. No emblem was more distinctive of the worship of Bacchus than this. Wherever the rites of Bacchus were performed, wherever his orgies were celebrated, the Ivy branch was sure to appear. Ivy, in some form or other, was essential to these celebrations. The votaries carried it in their hands, bound it around their heads, or had the Ivy leaf even indelibly stamped upon their persons.”
(Hislop, “The Two Babylons”)

The Valentine is the ancient symbol of Bacchus (Tammuz). It may be linked to the leopard spot of Nimrod. Regardless, as Dionysus is seen as the god of debauchery and lewdness, it is no wonder that the Ivy leaf, or heart symbol, has become the modern symbol of “love.”

An argument can be made that unto the pure, all things are pure. And certainly, there are many innocent Christians who are wisely simple concerning evil. But there is a simple-mindedness that we are commanded to avoid (Psalms 19:7; Proverbs 1:4, 22; 7:7; Romans 16:18; etc.):

Proverbs 14:15 The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.
16 A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.

Proverbs 9:13 A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing.
16 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,

The “all things” of the Bible, that are lawful, and pure (but not always expedient), are things that are lawful and pure! While we may use the world, and not abuse it, there are scores of Bible verses that teach that God forbids His people to be SPOTTED by the world (worldliness, etc.):

Jude 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

2 Peter 3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

1 Timothy 6:14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Ephesians 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Achan was stoned for taking a goodly Babylonish garment, etc., into his house. Jacob, when he revived, commanded his household to change their garments. The New Testament command us to “touch not the unclean thing.” God warns us that the testimony we present before His adversaries matters a great deal. When they can legitimately mock us for sin and compromise, He is not pleased:

Ezekiel 16:27…the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd way.

Titus 2:5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Based on these Scriptures, and others, it is wise and prudent for Christians to abstain from even the appearance of evil, as commanded by God (1 Thessalonians 5:22), and to avoid things that are associated with Pagans, Catholics, idolaters, Sodomites, etc. (e.g. so-called “peace signs,” spiked chains and belts, leopard prints, and such like that try to make, otherwise, godly girls “boyish,” or flirty, or wild, etc., in appearance). While we sincerely appreciate the kindness of innocent people who may show affection by sending a “happy Valentines” greeting, there are better, more Christian ways to love one another.

BE CAREFUL HOW YOU HEAR:

In conservative Christian circles, whatever standards (or doctrine, light, etc.) we agree to, if we stop growing, and get settled on our lees, are seen as true “convictions.” Everything else that we will not submit to, is painted as a “preference.” But it just may be that there are many so-called “preferences” out there, that should be our convictions. And if we will avoid becoming like the foolish king who will no longer be admonished (Ecclesiastes 4:13), the Lord will continue to show us many things. It is never too late to grow. The Lord desires that we flourish in fruitfulness, even in our mature years (Psalms 92:13-14). It may be that we have become hardened in pride, or just plain lazy or weary in well doing after many years. The Lord teaches us that if we reject light, He will begin to take away light that we used to have. In the same way, if we respond to light when it is given to us, He will open up more light to us:

Luke 8:18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.

Our ability to understand truth is largely based upon our WILLINGNESS:

John 7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

How often people reply that they just can’t “understand” a doctrine or teaching, or what others see as a so-called conviction. While the danger of adding to the Word certainly exists, it may be that these people are simply not willing to obey or sacrifice in that area. The cost may be too high. As Saul often justified his sins on the basis of some good thing that he could do, or was doing, so many will not receive certain things as true, because of some “good” thing they would have to sacrifice. Unless we are willing to present our bodies as a living sacrifice, we will not know the perfect will of God (Romans 12:1-3). As the fool, we will be deceiving ourselves about our pursuit of God’s knowledge:

Proverbs 17:16 Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no heart to it?

If we seek God’s wisdom more than riches, with all our heart, then we shall understand the fear of the Lord, and all that comes with it; and we will continue to grow (Proverbs 2:3-5).

HYMN TO THE WELFARE STATE

The Government is my Shepherd,
Therefore, I need not work.
It alloweth me to lie down on a good job.
It leadeth me beside still factories.
It destroyeth my initiative.
It leadeth me in the path of a parasite for politics’ sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of laziness and deficit-spending,
I will fear no evil, for the government is with me.
It prepareth an economic utopia for me, by appropriating the earnings of my grandchildren.
It filleth my head with false security:
My inefficiency runneth over.
Surely the government should care for me all the days of my life,
And I shall dwell in a fool’s paradise forever.”
(Anonymous, 1960)

An Open Door For Super Bowl Preaching

After God cursed the DFW Metroplex with bad weather for a week before the Super Bowl, He graciously let up on the winter storm long enough for Christians to have a nice church service on Sunday morning. When the weather changed on Saturday, and the ice and snow began to melt, thousands gathered in downtown Fort worth for Super Bowl festivities. Brother Jeremy Delasantos from New Mexico, and some other brethren, decided it would be a good time to preach. We gathered there near the ESPN booth, and amazingly, the city of Fort Worth wisely permitted preaching and evangelism, even with banners. Praise God for all who worked to make this happen.   At first, the new, temporary city code forbidding literature (obviously meant to forbid commercial literature) was applied to Christian tracts and banners.  But by Saturday, the city was instructing police officers about the proper meaning of the law. Many revelers were brought to some sobriety, and faced with eternal questions, and calls for repentance. Does God want us to party, with blood on our hands? With millions of dead babies in America, and God and His Word cast aside in so many ways? Nineveh repented when God warned them. What are American cities doing?

Surprisingly, Arlington also, on Sunday afternoon, before and during the game, showed the same wisdom concerning street preachers. Many from our church, and a few from out of town, (a whole bus load) gathered after church to go to Arlington to preach. As Satan would have it, our bus got stuck in the mushy ground. After several attempts to free it, we called some neighbors to help. One friend was unable to move it with his truck. And finally, at the last minute, a kind neighbor came with his tractor, and, when it looked as if the tractor could not move it, it finally came out of the hole, and away we went!

Arlington, near the stadium was certainly crowded. People were everywhere, outside, near the stadium. Amazingly, the sidewalks all around the stadium were open to people – even preachers and Christian street evangelists. And the police did not hinder the Christians. We were able to use large banners and bull-horns. Many dear folks from our church testified, and gave the Gospel, and warned the wicked, with our friends from out of state.  We met other Christians there, some from New York, who came to witness. Everywhere you looked, someone was talking with revelers, and crowds of people gathered in apartments, and on sidewalks, were faced with sober preaching. Many looked down and agreed with the preaching – a surprising number. Others blasphemed beyond anything I have ever heard in twenty years of street ministry. One woman covered her ears and said she wanted to party and did not want to be reminded about God. Quite a number of people video-taped the preaching.

By the time the game started, the weather began to frown, and before long the cold rain and wind began again. The people began to disperse.

In conclusion, we thank God for how He provided wonderful open doors for preaching and evangelism. Praise God for those who worked to make this open door possible. If God’s people will put their hands to the plow, in boldness, and will quit making excuses, He will show Himself strong on their behalf. How many other doors would God open, if only God’s people would be available to walk through them and use them?

Fort Worth Tries to Forbid “Super-Bowl” Preaching

We have been street preaching in the same place in downtown Fort Worth, every Friday night for 11 years. This week, however, in preparation for the Super Bowl that is coming to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, we were met with a message from the police. The city sidewalks have been “rented” by the NFL. They are now considered private property, and thus, there will be no preaching, tracts, etc.

After speaking with our lawyer in Austin, we decided to stay. The policeman who was told to give us the message (a very good, and just-minded officer ), appealed to his sergeant. A meeting was soon set up between the pastor  and the sergeant, where we were informed that we had it all wrong. A new ordinance had been passed for a few weeks forbidding any type of activity like street preaching and signs and tracts. We could be issued expensive citations or taken to jail for breaking this new ordinance.

We agreed to stop passing out tracts until we researched this situation further. But we said that we will continue our preaching as normal. Thankfully, our preachers were able to lift up their voices without any further hindrances.

In preaching, we pointed out the million babies that are killed every year by abortion, and the fact that by age 45, 1 out of 3 women will have had at least one abortion. God rebuked Israel for slaying His children (Ezekiel 36). Is it therefore a time to party in Texas? Did Nineveh party and celebrate when God was angry with their sins? Or did they fast and repent? Are the sins of America really less than Assyria? With the light that we have received as a nation? It is time to receive Jesus as Saviour, and repent of our national sins. This is the message that Satan tried to hinder in Fort Worth on Friday night (1-28-11). Thank God the door remained open to speak the truth one more time!

Joel Osteen: Better…but still “missing the mark”

http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/bestoftv/2011/01/24/piers.osteen.homosexuality.cnn?hpt=T2

In this interview, Joel Osteen finally makes it clear that he believes FROM THE BIBLE that homosexuality is a sin. After being pressed continually, he affirmed that he can only stick with what the Bible says, even though he doesn’t understand it. This is a great improvement for Mr. Osteen. However, he as still greatly missed the mark in his attempt to be such a positive preacher.
First, the idea that sin is simply “missing the mark” implies that it is something that we are not responsible for. Who would whip a child for shooting an arrow and missing his target? Sin is something that God hates. It angers God. It moves God to judge and destroy.
Secondly, Osteen walks the same path as Billy Graham, who when pressed in interviews to say whether something was a sin that is culturally accepted, would respond or imply that all sins are the same! According to God, there are distinctions in sins. Some sins are worthy of death. Jesus speaks of greater sins (John 19:11). Sodomy is always listed as one of the worst sins unto death. It is the bottom of the barrel in Romans 1, etc. Even the smallest sin, without Jesus, will cause us to go to the Lake of Fire, if it was not for the Saviour, Jesus Christ and His Blood. But there are different degrees of punishments in time, depending upon the degree of sin.
Thirdly, the interviewer scolded Mr. Osteen by citing the popular view that homosexuality is not a choice. Mr. Osteen was weak when he stated that he simply didn’t understand it all; and he even implied that the statement was true – thus, implying that God is unjust for saying it is a sin.
Mr. Osteen, Jesus says to beware when all men speak well of you, for the same thing was true of the false prophets in the OT who cried peace, peace, and healed the hurt of the people, only slightly. The world crucified Jesus, because He reproved the world of sin, and testified that its works were evil (John 7:7). Will we seek to appease this world today, in this late, dark hour? They will mock you, Mr. Osteen, for affirming the slightest bit of truth. Therefore, why not just tell them the whole truth? How many homosexuals are now resting more secure in their sin, now that you have stated that their sin in no worse than any sin that any Christian has? And then you dared to agree or imply that it is not a choice.
Whatever perverted urges or bents a person may have, they are responsible when they act upon them and refuse to resist them. Speak the truth, or else you will soon stand before the God of judgment. And you will see what happens to preachers, who profess His name, who will not properly warn the wicked. The blood of the wicked is upon the head of the preacher who will not warn (Ezekiel 3:18).

Dead Birds and Fish: The Lord Has a Controversy

Hosea 4:1 Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
2 By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
3 Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
Regardless of the instrumental cause, the Lord is in control of all things. There is no truth, no mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land today. There is swearing and lying and killing (especially the unborn) and stealing and adultery. It is time to repent and turn to the God of the Holy Bible.

Westboro Baptist Church: Who Is Buying The Scam?

Once again, now that leftist liberals are screaming to ban free-speech in the light of the Arizona shooting tragedy, we see the Westboro Baptist Church getting plenty of free media coverage. They are supposedly trying to protest the little girl’s funeral who was shot, because she is Catholic. I believe the whole church is a scam set up by these same Lefty Liberals. The alleged “pastor” was previously a civil rights lawyer, who has had some connections with Al Gore. It is obvious that this whole thing is fake. It is being used to bring people’s emotions to the height of rage, so they will cry out for a law against free speech and religious liberty. The proper response is to expose the game.
Fundamental Christians do believe it is proper to speak against homosexuality and even Catholicism. But this alleged Baptist church does things to enrage even the conservatives in America. It is past time to expose this puppet show. Where is the Gospel preached by this alleged church? Who is funding all of these trips and protests around the world?

Mrs. Palin Calls Bible Believers Neanderthals

Mrs. Palin recently reproved people who believe that mothers with small children should stay at home and guide the house:
“It kind of seems, Geraldine, that some things haven’t changed,” Palin said. “There are still the Neanderthals out there who pick on the petty, little, superficial, meaningless things – like looks, like whether you can or can’t work outside of the home if you have small children – all those type of things where I would so hope that at some point those Neanderthals will evolve into something a bit more with it, a bit more modern, and a bit more understanding that, yeah, women can accomplish much.”

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=224821

This is a shocking statement by Sarah Palin. She is facing her critics head on. But this time, she is resisting God. The Holy Bible plainly teaches older women to teach the younger women to be keepers at home, and to love their husbands and children (see Titus 2). It plainly teaches mothers to guide the house (1 Timothy 5:14), so the enemies of God will not have a cause to criticize Christianity! It is obvious, even to many unbelievers (especially in some other countries), that mothers need to be with their children, and children need to be with their mothers. Mothers should not be distracted with careers. Mrs. Palin professes Christ, and she needs to be a good example of Christianity and of motherhood. But to justify herself, she has adopted the feminism of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, etc. Mrs. Palin should read “The Women’s Bible” written by Cady Stanton, and see what the early feminist leaders that she praises really believe! They believed that the Holy Bible must be destroyed! Stanton mocked the Bible, and did not believe it is the Word of God. She writes:
“I do not believe that God inspired the Mosaic code.”
Mrs. Palin has sided with some of the greatest Christ-haters, and Bible haters the world has ever seen. And she has called fundamental Bible believers – people who simply believe God;s commandments should be obeyed – Neanderthals – an evolutionary term. May God open her eyes to see the harm she has done by trying to justify herself in this manner.
