The War Against Christianity: From Selling Baby Parts to a Statue Honoring Satan…Slippery Slope Achieved.

th (19)This past week, I, like other Americans who pay attention, have watched a real-life horror movie play out in front of our eyes regarding the harvesting and selling of the organs of infants, who had already been yanked out of their mother’s womb, with a pair of tongs, ending their life before they were even born.

Being a “Wordsmith”, as a Former Preacher at my church used to tell me that I was, a lot of words flowed through me, concerning this heinous practice of which the Government-Funded Organization, Planned Parenthood, has been brokering deals, for “fun and profit”.

Some of those words were even repeatable.

What sort of malevolent influence could drive Americans to such monstrous behavior, I wondered?

And, then…this story appeared.

Breitbart.com reports that

A Satanic reproductive rights group is promising to unveil a one-ton bronze statue of a goat-headed Baphomet Saturday in Detroit, in a private ceremony open only to bearers of $25 tickets.

Organizers are billing the event as the “largest public satanic ceremony in history,” despite the fact that its secret location will only be revealed to ticket-holders and attendance is strictly controlled. Tickets go for $25 for ordinary seating and $75 for those wishing VIP treatment, including the chance to be photographed seated on the Baphomet monument.

A spokeswoman said that funds from the event “raise money to support Satanic Temple campaigns such as our reproductive rights legal action fund.”

The ticket website states that the Satanic Temple “invites you to join us for a night of chaos, noise, and debauchery at the Unveiling, a hedonistic celebration introducing the controversial Baphomet monument accompanied by provocative performances and installations.”

Though the organizers of the ceremony call themselves Satanists, their propaganda suggests that the event may be a double ploy to make money and protest against religious Americans. The Satanic Temple works to promote abortion rights and to gain acceptance for same-sex marriage.

The leader of the Satanic Temple of Detroit, Jex Blackmore, said Wednesday that she can’t reveal the location of the unveiling because she wants to protect the safety of her guests.

According to the official invitation, the unveiling show “will serve as a call-to-arms from which we’ll kick off our largest fight to date in the name of individual rights to free exercise against self-serving theocrats.”

The group says it advocates separation of church and state and now wants to erect the satanic effigy outside Arkansas’ Statehouse where a Ten Commandments monument is also planned.

The Satanists said that the 8-foot tall statue “is not only an unparalleled artistic triumph, but stands as a testament to plurality and the power of collective action.” The statue depicts Satan with horns, hooves, wings and a beard, backed by an inverted pentagramand flanked by statues of two young children gazing up at the creature.

The event originally was to take place at a Detroit restaurant, but the venue’s owner said he canceled it after learning of the statue’s unveiling and of the Satanic Temple’s involvement. The group said they were very transparent, though, signing the contract as the “Satanic Temple.”

Unsurprisingly, the Satanic Temple is an active campaigner for rights to legal abortion on demand, and rails against all legislation restricting abortion, including ultrasounds, and abortion waiting periods. Its website links to an article stating:

The Satanic Temple (TST) supports personal choice in the context of abortion and, as part of a multi-faceted Women’s Rights campaign, TST is offering religious exemptions from arbitrary, insulting, and outright harmful anti-abortion legislation that has been steadily encroaching across the nation.

Among our fundamental tenets, TST holds that “one’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone,” and, “Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.”

The Satanic group also crusades for same-sex marriage. Prior to the recent Supreme Court ruling that made same-sex marriage the law of the land, the Temple offered “to perform same-sex weddings in the state of Michigan with the intention of reforming the state’s anti-gay marriage stance.”

“We are available to perform weddings in Michigan as well as other states that do not recognize same-sex unions,” the group said.

The Baphomet statue was originally planned to be uncovered at the state Capitol in Oklahoma City, but Detroit was ultimately selected for the unveiling because The Satanic Temple in the city has a “strong congregation,” with more than 200 registered members.

That explains why most of Downtown Detroit looks post-apocalyptic.

It is interesting that these Modern “Worshipers of Baphomet” are champions of “Abortion on Demand”.

Child Sacrifice is spoken of in the Bible, as part of the worship of another incarnation of Satan, Molech.

Per biblehub.com, Molech was a god of the Canaanites…

The victims offered to the divinity were not burnt alive, but were killed as sacrifices, and then presented as burnt offerings. “To pass through the fire” has been taken to mean a lustration or purification of the child by fire, not involving death. But the prophets clearly speak of slaughter and sacrifice, and of high places built to burn the children in the fire as burnt offerings (Jeremiah 19:5 Ezekiel 16:20, 21).

The popular conception, molded for English readers largely by Milton’s “Moloch, horrid king” as described in Paradise Lost, Book I, is derived from the accounts given in late Latin and Greek writers, especially the account which Diodorus Siculus gives in his History of the Carthaginian Kronos or Moloch. The image of Moloch was a human figure with a bull’s head and outstretched arms, ready to receive the children destined for sacrifice. The image of metal was heated red hot by a fire kindled within, and the children laid on its arms rolled off into the fiery pit below. In order to drown the cries of the victims, flutes were played, and drums were beaten; and mothers stood by without tears or sobs, to give the impression of the voluntary character of the offering (see Rawlinson’s Phoenicia, 113, for fuller details).

Is all this upheaval our nation is currently facing, which is sending our nation in an out-of-control downhill spiral, due to some sort of Satanic Influence attempting to tip the scales in the fight between Good and Evil, across our land?

Noah Webster (REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIER; JUDGE; LEGISLATOR; EDUCATOR; “SCHOOLMASTER TO AMERICA”), wrote

[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.129

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

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.131

[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.

[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.

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.

[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.

The reason that our nation is facing the difficulties we are is the belief by those who proclaim themselves to be the “smartest people in the room”, that they are above the old-fashioned, passe notions of morality and ethics, good and evil, and the Sovereignty of God.

They have made a grave mistake.

Evil exists and these fools opened the door to Satan in our society a long time ago.

When it all comes crashing down around them, what are they going to say?

The Devil made me do it?

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. – Ephesians 6:12

The Charleston Church Massacre: Of “Princes and Principalities”

th (14)As the nation continues to reel from the savage attack by a lunatic with, evidently, a racial axe to grind, who murdered 9 innocent Christians in Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, I have a question to ask you this morning :

Do you believe in Evil?

According to Gallup. Com, 92% of us in this country believe in a Supreme Being.

Therefore, if you believe in a benevolent God, logic dictates that you also believe in the Prince of the air, Lucifer, now known as Satan, once God’s most beautiful angel, known as the Lightbringer, who was cast down from heaven after rebelling against God.

By now, “the smartest people in the room”, are groaning, saying to themselves,

Surely, this stupid old cracker is not going to suggest that “the Devil made him do it”?

Well, boys and girls, Biblical Experts, including our Christian Leaders, whom we listen to every Sunday morning, tell us that while Satan is not allowed to physically harm us, as all of these popular Horror Movies “preach”, he is the Master of Deception and will continuously whisper in our ear, until he convinces us that wrong is right in right is wrong.

As Adam said to Eve,

I’ll bite.

I have spent the last couple of days, when I wasn’t working at my job, watching in fascination, as the Left side of the Political Aisle, as we euphemistically call Modern American Liberals, have inundated Facebook with articles and ignorant memes, attempting to make the murderer, Dylann Roof, out to be a Conservative White Supremacist.

This has turned out to be a completely false accusation, as his friends have related that the young man was not even interested in politics, whatsoever.

So, why did this young man turn into a murderous sociopath?

Somewhere, somehow, this 9th grade dropout, became convinced, through watching the news, and listening to the voices in his head, demons, imps, call them what you will, that America’s black population was somehow taking over this country and ruining it.

He became convinced. in his troubled mind, that it was up to him to do something about it. So, he went to Wednesday Night Bible Study at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

Of course, all of the theories put for by the before-mentioned Liberals, that I heard all day yesterday, were a continuance of the speech made by President Barack Hussein Obama from the previous day, in which he said, basically, that this wouldn’t have  happened, if America had stricter “Gun Laws”, i.e., Gun Control.

Of course, the answer given back to these Liberals on Facebook and everywhere else the last couple of days, has been, if somebody in that congregation had actually been armed, through their First Amendment Right, Dylann Roof would not have been successful.

Over the next several weeks, perhaps months, every person seeking attention and believing themselves to be a pundit, whether political, sociological, or psychological, will spout forth all sorts of theories as to the motives of this sociopath.

They will probably claim that he wasn’t given enough attention as a child. Or, maybe they’ll put forth that he was hanging around the wrong crowd. And, of course the political pundits on the Left side of the Political Aisle, will testify that it is because he is of the Conservative Political Ideology.

My theory, as to his motivation, is much more simple than that.

Dylann Roof is evil.

Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.

We see it everyday around us.

It inundates the cable news channels, 24 hours a day. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.

Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.

From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the murders by Chicago Street Gangs every night, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.

So, while Wednesday night’s massacre in Charleston is a single act of violence and pure evil in a sea of many, the reaction by Christian Americans  to it has been remarkable.

The outpouring of Christian Compassion and the act of forgiveness by the families of those slain by this madman, given to Dylann Roof, has made this Christian American take a step back for a moment and praise the Righteousness and Amazing Grace of the One Who made him.

Yes, my friends. We are still fighting a war against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics have seemingly become the norm, instead of the exception.

However, the reaction to the events in Charleston have renewed my hope.

It is not a political hope, like we have heard spoken of, in the empty promises of man, for the last 7 years, Rather, mine is a hope, a belief, in the Divine Spark which is in each and every one of us. A Spark, which, if given the chance, glows brightly enough to not only to dispel, but to defeat the darkness around us.

So, as you go about your day today, remember, that we have an Advocate, in Jesus Christ the Righteous, and, He is in our corner.

So, take that “little light” of yours, and let it shine.

Until He Comes,

The War Against Christianity: Religious Freedom and Liberal Intolerance

 

American Christianity 2Every now and then, politicians will surprise you.

Foxnews.com reports that

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on Saturday condemned the Obama administration’s use of “coercive federal power” to limit religious freedom as he courted Christian conservatives at a Liberty University commencement ahead of a likely presidential run. 

Charging that “the Christian voice” isn’t heard enough in the world, the Republican White House prospect lashed out at the Democratic president’s administration for “demanding obedience in complete disregard of religious conscience.” 

“The present administration is supporting the use of coercive federal power. What should be easy calls in favor of religious freedom have instead become an aggressive stance against it,” Bush told an estimated 34,000 gathered for a graduation ceremony. 

“Somebody here is being small-minded and intolerant, and it sure isn’t the nuns, ministers, and laymen and women who ask only to live and practice their faith,” he said. Bush was speaking inside a packed football stadium at Liberty University, an institution founded by the late conservative culture warrior, Rev. Jerry Falwell. 

Bush, a converted Catholic, is preparing to enter a Republican primary contest that includes Republican competitors considered far more popular with the GOP’s religious right. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz formally announced his presidential campaign at Liberty University last month. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Baptist pastor, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry have all made their Christian faith a centerpiece of prospective campaigns. 

All have aggressively condemned Obama’s health care overhaul which requires some religion-affiliated organizations to provide health insurance for employees that includes birth control. The measure is among several examples of what Republicans charge is Obama’s attack on religious liberty. 

“How strange, in our own time, to hear Christianity spoken of as some sort of backward and oppressive force,” Bush said. “Your generation is bringing the Christian voice to where it always is needed, and sometimes isn’t heard enough.” 

Despite nagging questions about Bush’s conservative credentials, Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. noted that Bush was considered a hero among social conservatives as Florida governor. He fought to keep Michael Schiavo from removing the feeding tube from his brain-damaged wife, Terri. Leaders in the anti-abortion movement still praise Bush today. 

And in a reminder that his path to the presidency depends upon moderate and independents perhaps as much as conservatives, Bush concluded his remarks with a message for non-Christians. 

“In my experience, at least, you generally find the same good instincts, fair-mindedness, and easygoing spirit among Americans of every type — including, of course, the many who belong to no church at all,” he said. 

Democrats were paying close attention to Bush’s remarks. 

“Jeb Bush will not win over any Virginia voters with his close-minded pandering to the right wing,” said Morgan Finkelstein, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Virginia. “By supporting the Indiana discrimination law and attacking women’s reproductive rights, Bush places himself firmly at odds with Virginia values.

Oh, bull.

While Jeb Bush is definitely not my Presidential Candidate of Choice, he was spot on in his remarks, yesterday.

The Moral Compass of America’s Liberal Leadership and their sycophantic minions, in both the Main Stream Media and the “New Media” (i.e., the Internet) and their “foot soldiers”, has been pointing in the wrong direction for quite a while, now.

Halfway around the world, in the Radical Muslim Rogue Nation of Iran, an American Pastor, jailed for preaching the Word of God, and refusing to worship a pedophile, sits languishing in horrible conditions, while his wife and children petition our leaders to get up off their duffs and bring him home.

Meanwhile, The President of the United States of America and his Secretary of State, instead of demanding this American Clergyman’s immediate release, are instead, acquiescing to the wishes of this Rogue Nation, and have set a timeline for them to have the capability to build the means of the nuclear destruction of the United States of America.

In Iraq, Christians and innocent Muslims are being killed by barbarians who have sworn to hoist their flag above our White House.

Nationally, America’s economy remains in the tank, with more and more Americans choosing to drop out of the work force, in disgust and humiliation. 37.8% of America’s Work Force, to be exact.

A lot of these “drop-outs” are Americans over 50, like myself, who are being intentionally ignored, because of our age, which seems to matter more than our business acumen and wealth of experience.

While Americans are being battered about, both in foreign lands and here, in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave, our Supreme Court is hearing arguments in a case which, depending on their ruling, could change the very definition of the word “marriage”, a word which has meant the same thing for thousands of years.

Meanwhile, we are being assured by the smartest people in the room that legalizing marijuana has no consequences. So what if elementary school kids are being caught selling their parents stash? And, DUI accidents are up?

Yep. No consequences at all.

The very fabric of our society is being torn asunder, through the dissipation of morality and the glorification of evil.

Satanists, Vampires, and Zombies…oh, my!

What we seem to be heading for is not simply an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless Central Government, whose credo is

From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)

Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so will it fail here.

Just as amorality and licentiousness led to the destruction of the Roman Empire, so, if unchecked, will it lead to America’s.

The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 74% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.

It is this New Generation of Amoral Socialists, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.

So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?

As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.

However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”.

I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.

10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12

By now. you’re probably asking, “So what’s the point of all this, KJ?”

We are given free will by our Creator…will to make choices and decisions on the direction of our lives. Being human, we often don’t make the right decisions and being human, those decisions have the potential to lead us down a dark path.

Whether is in reality or strictly in the close quarters of our own consciousness, the path we choose to follow is up to us.

However, our parents, family, and friends can make a difference in our journey and, on this Mother’s Day 2015, I thank God that through His Grace, I was given a Mother and Father who made sure that I received loving instruction in The Way in which I should go.

We still live in the greatest country on the face of the earth and we still have a responsibility to one another.

The Light or the Darkness. The choice is up to each and every one of us.

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:14 (ESV)
