Why the Secular left Despises the Christian Right

Christian Ministries International
by Jason and Ron Carlson

Many people in the Evangelical Christian community fail to understand the true underlying cause of the Secular Left’s antagonism for the Christian Right of America. Many Christians assume it is because of our opposition to abortion, or the homosexual lifestyle, or our desire for alternative theories to evolution to be taught in the classroom; and while all of these are related to the Secular Left’s vitriol, none of them strike to the core of the matter. No, there is a much deeper and far less recognized cause for the Secular Left’s animosity for the Evangelical Christian community.

Most the world seethes as Israel defends itself

By Stan Goodenough
Dec 28, 2008


The international community was in uproar at the weekend following Israel's decision to finally act against the relentless rain of rockets on Jewish communities in the south of the country.

Only the United States and Great Britain indicated an understanding for the Israeli action and laid the blame for the crisis firmly at Hamas' door.

“Hamas’ continued rocket attacks into Israel must cease if the violence is to stop,” said White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe.

ISRALESTINE-The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East



By Bill Salus

© Prophecy in the News

5 STAR - Book Review By Bob Ulrich

There’s a war on the horizon. The student of prophecy can feel it in his bones as the prophetic warnings of the Old Testament prophets come into view. Just recently, Russian tanks swept across the landscape of democratic Georgia, destroying everything in their path as the Georgian people begged for mercy. Russia has also claimed ownership of the North Pole and the rich mineral rights that go along with it. Oil is the new gold. And the Cold War is over, right?
Russian strongman, Vladimir Putin, has completed his term as Russian President, but somehow, he’s kept his hands on the Russian military machine. The Russian Bear is on the move again and its pockets are lined with increasing oil revenues, likely generated from America’s attempt to fight worldwide terrorism.
On another war front, Iranian madman, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, continues to threaten Israel with annihilation, as his country moves down the perilous path to nuclear capability. Ahmadinejad seems to have a death wish, purposely rattling his saber in hopes of creating and apocalyptic scenario that would leave Iran in the good graces of the Mahdi, the Muslim Messiah. Russia and Iran are perfect partners for the last days.

The stage is set, the players are in place and soon, Russia, along with the jittery, Iranian posse, will attack little Israel and get the surprise of a lifetime! Yes, it’s the Battle of Gog and Magog that many of us think could be right around the next bend in the road.

But according to Bill Salus, author of Isralestine: The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle Ease, you need to read the Old Testament again. Salus says that Obadiah, Zephaniah, and Zechariah had some major things to say about today’s warmongering in the Middle East. Suffice it to say that the ancient hatred between Israel and its biblical neighbors has been fast forwarded to the 21st century and a new battle of long time enemies may be about to begin.

According to the author, there is a big war on the horizon, but not the one you expect. Salus takes us to Psalm 83 and introduces us to what he believes is the regional war that must take place before Russia and Iran come down against Israel:

“They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent; they are confederate against thee” (Psalm 83:4-5)

J. R. and Gary have been talking about Psalm 83 for many years, along with the destruction of Damascus in Isaiah 17, but someone has finally penned a book on this complicated subject! I don’t think you’ll find another book out there on the preliminary war to the Battle of Gog and Magog. But be forewarned. This book is not without controversy as Salus introduces some unusual ideas on this war, the future of Islam, the future of Israel, and the Palestinian people.

Salus takes us to Ezekiel 38 and points out that Israel's surrounding neighbors are nowhere to be found in the Battle of Gog and Magog. Where are their lifetime archenemies? Syria? Jordan? Egypt? Saudi Arabia? Lebanon? The Palestinians? How could Russia and Iran fight a war against Israel and keep these perpetual antagonists away? According to Bill Salus, it’s simple. At the time Gog and Magog takes place, Israel has already conquered her ancient enemies in a dramatic and convincing military victory, greatly expanding her borders while plundering the wealth of these Arab nations. This is the event that draws Russia and Iran down from the north as they see Israel taking control of the wealth of the Middle East.

Isralestine offers a fantastic summation on the miraculous restoration of the nation of Israel. He builds the foundation of the book around the reliability of the Abrahamic Covenant. Unfortunately, according to the author, 85% of mainline Christian churches are now embracing Replacement Theology, teaching that the church has replaced Israel in God’s future plans. Once you read this book, you won’t be able to even consider that flawed perspective.

The roots of this ancient family hatred can be traced all the way back to the Garden of Eden, but Salus does a great job in showing many Old Testament events in a new light. The fractured relationship between Isaac and Ishmael; the nasty relationship between Sarah and Hagar, and the peculiar relationship between Jacob and Esau will all take on new meaning for you after Salus opens up your eyes to what might have been happening in their world during several well-chronicled, life changing events.

He’ll show you why God chose Israel to be the “apple of His eye,” and why he chose to punish them and scatter them to the four corners of the earth. He’ll explain the Holocaust and show you why the Antichrist has a sequel planned for the Jewish people and why they will be caught off guard. Best of all he’ll show you why God has chosen to bring them back to the Holy Land and restore them to prominence.

While many Christians are looking for a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians, Salus is looking for war. Many of God’s ancient prophecies concerning the destruction of Israel’s enemies have yet to be fulfilled, but that could change quickly. God said, “I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee.” The enemies of Israel need to be on high alert because our covenant-honoring God always keeps His promises.

Cast your Bread upon the Waters

This came from my friend Thom Burk...It's a great Christmas time story...

– Author Unknown

The man slowly looked up. This was a woman clearly accustomed to the finer things of life. Her coat was new. She looked like that she had never missed a meal in her life. His first thought was that she wanted to make fun of him, like so many others had done before.

"Leave me alone," he growled. To his amazement, the woman continued standing. She was smiling – her even white teeth displayed in dazzling rows.

"Are you hungry?" she asked.

"No," he answered sarcastically. "I've just come from dining with the president. Now go away." The woman's smile became even broader. Suddenly the man felt a gentle hand under his arm.

"What are you doing, lady?" the man asked angrily. "I said to leave me alone!"

Just then a policeman came up. "Is there any problem, ma'am?" he asked.

"No problem here, officer," the woman answered. "I'm just trying to get this man to his feet. Will you help me?"

The officer scratched his head. "That's old Jack. He's been a fixture around here for a couple of years. What do you want with him?"

"See that cafeteria over there?" she asked. "I'm going to get him something to eat and get him out of the cold for awhile."

"Are you crazy, lady?" the homeless man resisted. "I don't want to go in there!" Then he felt strong hands grab his other arm and lift him up. "Let me go, officer. I didn't do anything."

"This is a good deal for you, Jack," the officer answered. "Don't blow it."

Finally, and with some difficulty, the woman and the police officer got Jack into the cafeteria and sat him at a table in a remote corner. It was the middle of the morning, so most of the breakfast crowd had already left and the lunch bunch had not yet arrived. The manager strode across the cafeteria and stood by his table.

"What's going on here, officer?" he asked. "What is all this. Is this man in trouble?"

"This lady brought this man in here to be fed," the policeman answered.

"Not in here!" the manager replied angrily. "Having a person like that here is bad for business."

Old Jack smiled a toothless grin. "See, lady? I told you so. Now if you'll let me go. I didn't want to come here in the first place."

The woman turned to the cafeteria manager and smiled. "Sir, are you familiar with Eddy and Associates, the banking firm down the street?"

"Of course I am," the manager answered impatiently. "They hold their weekly meetings in one of my banquet rooms."

"And do you make a goodly amount of money providing food at these weekly meetings?"

"What business is that of yours?"

"I, sir, am Penelope Eddy, President and CEO of the company."

"Oh."

The woman smiled again. "I thought that might make a difference." She glanced at the cop who was busy stifling a giggle. "Would you like to join us in a cup of coffee and a meal, officer?"

"No thanks, ma'am," the officer replied. "I'm on duty."

"Then, perhaps, a cup of coffee to go?"

"Yes, ma'am. That would be very nice."

The cafeteria manager turned on his heel "I'll get your coffee for you right away, officer."

The officer watched him walk away. "You certainly put him in his place," he said.

"That was not my intent. Believe it or not, I have a reason for all this." She sat down at the table across from her amazed dinner guest she stared at him intently. "Jack, do you remember me?"

Old Jack searched her face with his old, rheumy eyes "I think so – I mean you do look familiar."

"I'm a little older perhaps," she said. "Maybe I've even filled out more than in my younger days when you worked here, and I came through that very door, cold and hungry."

"Ma'am?" the officer said questioningly. He couldn't believe that such a magnificently turned out woman could ever have been hungry.

"I was just out of college," the woman began. "I had come to the city looking for a job, but I couldn't find anything. Finally I was down to my last few cents and had been kicked out of my apartment. I walked the streets for days. It was February and I was cold and nearly starving. I saw this place and walked in on the off chance that I could get something to eat."

Jack lit up with a smile. "Now I remember you," he said. "I was behind the serving counter. You came up and asked me if you could work for something to eat. I said that it was against company policy."

"I know," the woman continued. "Then you made me the biggest roast beef sandwich that I had ever seen, gave me a cup of coffee, and told me to go over to a corner table and enjoy it. I was afraid that you would get into trouble. Then, when I looked over, I saw you put the price of my food in the cash register I knew then that everything would be all right."

"So you started your own business?" Old Jack asked.

"I got a job that very afternoon. I worked my way up. Eventually I started my own business, which, with the help of God, prospered." She opened her purse and pulled out a business card. "When you are finished here, I want you to pay a visit to a Mr. Lyons. He's the personnel director of my company. I'll go talk to him now and I'm certain he'll find something for you to do around the office." She smiled. "I think he might even find the funds to give you a little advance so that you can buy some clothes and get a place to live until you get on your feet. If you ever need anything, my door is always opened to you."

There were tears in the old man's eyes. "How can I ever thank you?" He asked.

"Don't thank me," the woman answered. "To God goes the glory. Thank Jesus. He led me to you."

Outside the cafeteria, the officer and the woman paused at the entrance before going their separate ways. "Thank you for all your help, officer," she said.

"On the contrary, Ms. Eddy," he answered. "Thank you. I saw a miracle today, something that I will never forget. And thank you for the coffee."



The Bible says, "Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days" (Ecc 11:1 ESV). Giving isn't about receiving, yet we know the Lord always remembers those who unselfishly help those who are truly in need. I felt this story beautifully illustrated how this can be true….

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye...

I think there are certain prophecies yet to be fulfilled before the 2nd coming, but MANY disagree with me...and I hope they are right! In such a time as ye think not...


So now what?


OK! We know the government of the USA is being subverted before our eyes. We know the schools are subverted, teaching the world planners/servers interests, and not national sovereignty interests. We have been informed that the Roman Catholic church is behind MUCH of the darkness and is often the "man behind the curtain". Most main line media is controlled by the Council on Foreign Relations, our nation sovereignty is a joke, our constitution has been shredded, and is in fact in danger of being scrapped for a "more up to date version" in reflecting more current social drift. !?!?

Is any of this surprising to you? Is anything actually coming to pass that we weren't looking for to come to pass? We are frustrated that it's happening now, to us, and not some future generation. But here we are. So now what? So now we keep on believing that all things work together for the good to those that love Jesus.

Now many advocate joining groups of militia-minded "patriots" willing to kill US citizens who would infringe upon their "rights" as US citizens and Christian believers...but true Christianity rebukes militia-mindedness! Jesus said "if my kingdom were of this age, then my people would fight" indicating we are NOT to physically destroy the wicked. (I guess those ascribing to the preterist philosophy may feel OK with physical violence against non-believers who accost Christians...I will be told soon their position.) You'll get that from the New World Servers Christian sheepfold soon enough. Those that think they serve "Christ" by killing bible believers unwilling to compromise for P.E.A.C.E.

John the baptist (baptizer, not a member of the protestant denomination) told the Roman soldier when asked what he was supposed to do...being a Roman soldier...do violence to no man!
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal (physical), but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, bringing every thought into captivity unto the obedience of Christ. On our knees we are taller than trees!

We war NOT against flesh and blood, but against powers, and principalities, spiritual wickedness in high places! If we were to physically attack those who plan our demise, then I would advocate bombing the next Bilderberger meeting, but that would be devilishly wrong. God used war in the Old Testament as a physical means of expressing spiritual realities, but teaches us in the New Testament that all of the Old Testament was given to lead us to Christ! Now we have the examples of both walking in righteousness, and unrighteousness with the rewards of each!

Submission to the will of God (Jesus) will bring us personal peace even in the midst of tribulation until the Kingdom of God is physically set up on Earth. The Kingdom of God currently is a Spiritual Kingdom we abide in, and are ambassadors of. After Jesus returns, the physical Kingdom will be established, and Jesus will rule the nations with a rod of iron.

Don't forget who you really serve, and his power to save, protect, or resurrect. You may be required to surrender you life before Jesus returns. Here is a question I pose often at church: when Stephen was martyred, was he overcome by the world, or did he overcome evil with good? Stephen was the first martyr of the church and gloriously overcame the world! He only died in the flesh but will resurrect in incomprehensible victory!

We win! As long as you stay true to Jesus, and his word, you can't lose! You may endure hardship; you may endure suffering. You may not! You probably will. Settle it in your heart before faced with it. All the apostles were martyred except John, and they attempted to kill him too. Do you think you are above the apostles? Are you above Jesus. Remember he said if they hated him they will hate us too. Paul wrote ...that I might know him in the power of the resurrection and in the fellowship of his suffering. Read about the persecuted church in China, and Muslim countries. Pastors of house churches are having their tongues cut out, and are being nailed to the walls of the homes they meet in while the church watches. Do you believe they will lose their reward? I don't. Just because it isn't happening here yet doesn't mean that it isn't slated for us. We still win!

God Bless, and don't worry, turn all your fears over to him. He'll never let you down. You may not understand why all that transpires, comes to you...but remember Job. Nothing the devil did to Job happened without being screened first by God. And God knew ultimately that Job would end up doubly blessed for all of it. God double bless.

NEWS BRIEF: "Bailout approved: Automakers to get $17.4B", Excite News, December 19, 2008

This today from cuttingedge.org

"WASHINGTON (AP) - Citing danger to the national economy, President Bush approved an emergency bailout of the U.S. auto industry Friday, offering $17.4 billion in rescue loans in exchange for tough concessions from the deeply troubled carmakers and their workers."
This next sentence is purely Fascism!
"The government will have the option of becoming a stockholder in the companies, much as it has with major banks, in effect partially nationalizing the industry."
In a Fascist Economy, the government owns a portion of the key companies, which gives its officials the leverage to severely regulate every company within the entire economy. We are truly marching toward Fascism, both in economics and in politics.
President-elect Obama immediately signaled his approval of Bush's actions.
"President-elect Barack Obama, who takes office a month from Saturday, praised the White House move. 'Today's actions are a necessary step to help avoid a collapse in our auto industry that would have devastating consequences for our economy and our workers," he said. "With the short-term assistance provided by this package, the auto companies must bring all their stakeholders together - including labor, dealers, creditors and suppliers - to make the hard choices necessary to achieve long-term viability'."
The fix is in! The march toward thorough government regulation of the entire economy is irrevocable; and, the undiscerning Americans are cheering the move to economic and political dictatorship. In the short term, before the planned World War III, Americans will believe that prosperity has returned. Consumer confidence should bounce back rather quickly in the Obama term.

NEWS BRIEF: "More Than 650 Scientists Dissent Over Warming Claims", Hawaii Reporter, 12/11/2008

This from cuttingedge.org.
"Over 650 dissenting scientists from around the globe challenged man-made global warming claims made by the United Nations Intergovernemntal Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former Vice President Al Gore. This new 231-page U.S. Senate Minority Report report -- updated from 2007’s groundbreaking report of over 400 scientists who voiced skepticism about the so-called global warming “consensus” -- features the skeptical voices of over 650 prominent international scientists, including many current and former UN IPCC scientists, who have now turned against the UN IPCC."

"The over 650 dissenting scientists are more than 12 times the number of UN scientists (52) who authored the media-hyped IPCC 2007."

"The chorus of skeptical scientific voices grow louder ... as a steady stream of peer-reviewed studies, analyses, real world data and inconvenient developments challenged the UN and former Vice President Al Gore's claims that the 'science is settled' and there is a 'consensus'. On a range of issues, 2008 proved to be challenging for the promoters of man-made climate fears.

Promoters of anthropogenic warming fears endured the following: Global temperatures failing to warm; Peer-reviwed studies predicting a continued lack of warming; a failed attempt to revive the discredited 'Hockey Stick'; inconvenient developments and studies regarding CO2; the Sun; Clouds; Antarctica; the Arctic; Greenland; Mount Kilimanjaro; Hurricanes; Extreme Storms; Floods; Ocean Acidification; Polar Bears; lack of atmospheric dust; the failure of oceans to warm and rise as predicted.

"In addition, the following developments further secured 2008 as the year the 'consensus' collapsed."

Since neither time nor space allow us to fully reprint this Hawaii Reporter article, we encourage you to read it fully.

The ascension of the extremely Liberal Barack Obama to the White House is likely to save the Global Warming Movement from collapse. Even though scientific evidence is strongly moving against Global Warming, Obama and his Energy Chief Steven Chu are going to be able to daily claim that Global Warming is scientifically correct and needs drastic action to prevent the kind of scenario painted by "The Day After Tomorrow".

The Administration propaganda machine, in cooperation with a willing Mass Media, will be able to bury any and all scientific protestations to the contrary and galvanize support from the American citizenry. This development moves the world yet closer to a Global Authority, a Global Government.

The Secret History of the Jesuits-by Edmond Paris

"Dr. Rivera's Introduction
The most dangerous of men are those who appear very religious, especially when they are organized and in a position of authority. They have the deep respect of the people who are ignorant of their ungodly push for power behind the scenes. These religious men, who pretend to love God, will resort to murder, incite revolution and wars if necessary to help their cause. They are crafty, intelligent, smooth religious politicians who live in a shadowy world of secrets, intrigue, and phony holiness. This pattern, seen in "The Secret History of the Jesuits," spiritually speaking can be seen in the Scribes, Pharisees and Sadducees at the time of Jesus Christ. This same evil spirit directed the Roman emperors to issue the ten murderous decrees to persecute the early Christian church.

The "Early Fathers" observed most of the ancient Babylonian system plus Jewish theology and Greek philosophy. They all perverted most of the teachings of Christ and His apostles. They paved the way for the Roman Catholic machine that was to come into existence. Piously, they attacked, perverted, added to and took away from the Bible. This religious antichrist spirit working through them is seen again when Ignatius de Loyola created the Jesuits to secretly accomplish two major goals for the Roman Catholic Institution: 1) universal political power, and 2) a universal church, in fulfillment of the prophecies of Revelation 6, 13, 17 and 18.

By the time Ignatius de Loyola arrived on the scene, the Protestant Reformation had seriously damaged the Roman Catholic system. Ignatius de Loyola came to the conclusion that the only way his "church" could survive was by enforcing the canons and doctrines on the temporal power of the pope and the Roman Catholic institution; not by just destroying the physical life of the people alone as the Dominican priests were doing through the Inquisition, but by infiltration and penetration into every sector of life.

Protestantism must be conquered and used for the benefit of the popes. That was Ignatius de Loyola's personal proposal, among others, to Pope Paul III. Jesuits immediately went to work secretly infiltrating ALL the Protestant groups including their families, places of work, hospitals, schools, colleges, etc. Today, the Jesuits have almost completed that mission.

The Bible puts the power of a local church into the hands of a Godly pastor. But the cunning Jesuits successfully managed over the years to remove that power into the hands of denomination headquarters, and have now pushed almost all of the Protestant denominations into the arms of the Vatican. This is exactly what Ignatius de Loyola set out to accomplish: a universal church and the end of Protestantism.

As you read "The Secret History of the Jesuits," you will see there is a parallel between the religious and political sectors. The author, Mr. Paris, reveals the penetration and infiltration of the Jesuits into the governments and nations of the world to manipulate the course of history by setting up dictatorships, and weakening democracies such as the United States of America, by paving the way for social, political, moral, military, educational and religious anarchy."

This book is available in the links to the left, or you may click this title of this post to go directly to the book on-line. Dr. Alberto Rivera wrote this introduction, and authored the series just previously posted for Chick Comics. These guys know their subject matter, and Dr. Rivera was assassinated for his dissemination of the truth. A price he expected to pay, but knew the truth was worth the risk. If you haven't yet read Charles Chiniquys "Fifty Years in the Church of Rome", it too is available in the links to the left, and is extremely important to read. It reveals that the Roman Catholic Church was behind the assassination of president Abraham Lincoln.

Chick Comics


By clicking on the link, you will be taken to Jack Chicks comic site, where you may read his comics "The Prophet" book six in the "Alberto" series, the original story of "Alberto" and also "The Godfathers". These should be required reading as Christian primer texts, but they are ignored by many who think that since they are comics, they have no validity. These are presented in comic book format, but the message is very grown up indeed. They've been around for a long time, but you don't see them around as much any more. Hope you go read them if you haven't yet. Shucks, I hope you re-read them if you already are familiar with them.

IS OBAMA ELIGIBLE TO THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT?

By Lynn Stuter
November 25, 2008
NewsWithViews.com


Lawsuits were filed in several states prior to November 4, 2008, challenging the right of Barack Hussein Obama to be on the ballots of the various states where the lawsuits were filed. Those lawsuits were, for the most part, dismissed by the courts of the respective states.

However, two lawsuits still exist before the United States Supreme Court: Berg vs Obama, et al and Donofrio vs Wells. [4](end notes at original site)

Meanwhile, the enterprising hosts of the Mike in the Morning show out of Detroit, Michigan called the Kenyan Embassy in Washington, DC and spoke with the Kenyan Ambassador to the United States, Peter Ogego. Ambassador Ogego had some most interesting things to say to the WRIF hosts. That conversation was recorded and can be listened to here. The bottom line, however, is that Kenyan Ambassador Ogego confirmed that Barack Hussein Obama was born in Kenya as claimed by Obama’s paternal grandmother who states he was born in Mombasa, Kenya; that she was present at his birth.
