 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (Genesis 12:1-3) King James Version (KJV) Public Domain

Israel leads the world in technological advances that make the world a better place.

From a device called the “Nano Artificial Nose,” which sniffs out cancer, to technology that gives sight to the blind and a contraption called the “ReWalk” exoskeleton that allows paraplegics to walk again, Israel leads the world in medical innovation. Every day, millions around the world use some kind of medical treatment that came from Israel.

Israeli entrepreneurs and scientists are also pioneers in agriculture and invented techniques that allowed the tiny nation to turn rocky desert landscapes into lush orchards and mosquito-infested swamps into citrus groves. And Israel has exported those techniques to the rest of the world.

In his new book, Thou Shalt Innovate: How Israeli Ingenuity Repairs the World, Israeli author and Middle East expert Avi Jorisch profiles wondrous Israeli innovations that are changing the lives of billions of people around the globe and explores why Israeli innovators of all faiths feel compelled to make the world better.  (Click to Source)

Left Behind

meditation-2016-04-12-102555

We have left a number of Left Behind letters over the last 7-8 years as the day of Christ’s return for His bride, the church, seemed imminent.

Once again, the signs of His soon return are overwhelming.  While I can’t say that this is it.  I can say it sure looks like it and regardless you should be ready.

With each occurence the frequency and severity of the warnings has been stronger than the last.  As Christ described these as labor pains this makes sense.

I continue to realize that my love and patience for those that God is passionate about is pale, fickle and faulting.

I’m convinced God would keep the door open much longer.  Peter wrote that God is not slow, but anxious that none be lost.  His love is deep and His patience abounding.

Still God gave us 8x as many things to look for regarding the time of His return than He gave regarding Christ’s first appearing as a baby and as a sacrifice on a cross.  The signs are abundant.

I’m sorely tempted to rehash them all again, but they’re here if you want to read.

For many they won’t much matter much longer.  They will be yesterday’s news.  Still all of us will marvel and many will ponder for ages at how they could have missed them.

This site also has many links to others with abundant information, signs and prophecy.

The real question for you is, what next?

The world is in a very real way is falling apart. The day is upon us when the world will look like this:

  • Millions have disappeared creating disaster, chaos, heart break and confusion.
  • Some say Christ came and took His followers, although their voices are being drowned by those who say otherwise.
  • Millions of church goers who have been left, say it must have been something else.
  • Cults, spiritualists and the self-righteous will proclaim “anything but God”, but it was in fact God.
  • Many will believe a deception of one flavor or another.  Perhaps the CERN particle accelerator opened a worm hole in the time-space continuum.   Still others will say it was aliens.
  • When the church is taken up, Satan and his demonic fallen angels will be cast down to the earth, with power, beauty and answers.  We suppose they will mascarade as aliens with answers.  Aliens they are, but aliens cast out of heaven and not from Krypton.  Their objective is to wreak havoc, before they are sentenced to hell and take as many with them as they can.
  • Everyone wants a cute little friendly helpful like E.T. phone home, Close Encounters alient friend.  Even Stephen Hawking was wary of contact with aliens.
  • I speculate many will say these “aliens” have come to solve the world’s problems and for a time it will seem as though they are.
  • In the midst of the racial tension, sexual identity tension, morality tension, political tension, poverty and homelessness tension, anarchy, war, death, rape, murder, economic & ecological collapse, violence and polarization their ideas will seem the right way to go.
  • Others will be out front.  Perhaps some of the following: Macron, Francis, Putin, Trump, Netanyahu, etc…, but they are not men to follow in days like this.  Love them or hate them is not the point.  God say spreadout, fill the earth, trust me and not in your collective ability, still the Tower of Babel, The E.U., The U.N., The Twin Towers all continue to go up and declar our own collective independence from the only one with any real answers.
  • Words like: Volcano, Earthquake, Radiation, Tsunami, Hail Stone and Meteor will take on meaning like never before, as God steadily increases the pressure.  He loves you and will pay any price for you to wake up and repent, even if many dead men walking must suffer and perish to give you an opportunity (God is sovereign over every last suffering).

At the end of the day, no one will be able to say God did not take every opportunity and apply every pressure to urge people to acknowledge that He is God and turn to Him for redemption. He freely gives and longs to do so.

God’s word is pretty clear that 1/3rd of humanity will die in the 7 years that lie ahead.   Most will die in their sin.  For many a God like this is not a God to worship.  For me this is exactly why I do.

The one God has been patient for 6,000 years.  Loving in that He created us, even though knowing in advance what a sorry rebellious godless sinless mess we would be.  Knowing He would have to love us to the point of death for His Son.

Who creates and lets the creation hurt him?  Who creates and lets the creation torture, hurt, abuse, mock and shame the thing He cares most about?  Who lets the creation mock Him, deny Him and live in rebellion?  Our God does that.  He loves that much.  He is patient that much.

A moment with Him is worth any price.  An eternity for one is worth the immense suffering of many for a season.

Satan has since his own rebellion been working tirelessly and ruthlessly to take others with him to hell.  Continuously and fruitlessly trying to make God a liar.

In this case< God has made a covenant with the people of His land in Israel.  God has made Jerusalem His eternal capital and it will not be divided.  Satan is behind the two state solution and upon this God will throw a foul and intervene.

The restoration of the third temple is the highest insult to God, as it rejects Christ as the once for all complete atoning sacrifice for sin and tries to retun to the blood of bulls, goats and pigeons.

When the division of the covenant land and war from Russia, Iran and Syria against Israel is launched, God will launch His rescue plan — the Exodus (exit) of His followers from planet earth.

These 7 years will be marked by fear, as people abandon freedom for “peace and security”.  People will trust men to do what only God can do.  People will accept any “terms and conditions” for the next meal.

I suspect there will be much identity theft after the sudden mass disappearance.  Fear and desire to huddle together “tower of babel” for “peace and safety” will cause people to drop differences, insist on uniformity “the matrix” and a great census will be taken.  This will end with some kind of skin tattoo, subcutaneious microchip, RFID, NFID or other identifying mark.  God calls this the “mark of the beast”.

To eat, to buy or sell, will require acceptance of the terms and acceptance.  This charismatic self-engrandizing world leader who steps up to lead the world out of the mess, is not Christ (the only source of deliverance) and yet will promote himself as god, this “anti-christ” will change the terms. You must acknowledge this anti-christ who will be possessed by satan himself will declare himself god.  All who agree just to keep on living are condemned to hell.

The billions who are left are all dead men walking.  The third that die were dead already.  They will have rejected God and He will have granted their wish.  God is a gentlemen and no rapist.  If you don’t want His urgent pleading love and way of escape, your wish will be granted.

Those that reject God’s lordship for provision in their lives and accept the provision of the anti-christ have made their choice.  Their destiny is sealed.  Those of us who are sealed in Christ, whose names are written and sealed in Christ’s book of life are sealed.  Those who have rejected Christ’s provision are Unsealed.

This blog was written for you – the Unsealed.

There is still a small and quickly closing opportunity for salvation, but the day is today.

There is no more time.

God is outside of time, created time and is closing the door on time.

If you still have questions, ask them quick, but ASK them.  There over 3,000 posts here and links to thousands more. More material has been written about God by Christians than any other.

The fact that you are here reading and clearly others wrote this down before it happened, to tell you when it happened what it was, should be miraculous enough to convince you.  Who could describe what was going to happen before it happened with such accuracy?  Well it wasn’t us.  We just read the flight plan, saw the fulfillments and tried to say something.

God’s eternal attributes and divine qualities are clearly seen.  Those who reject Him are without excuse…

Still we pray for one more.

The parallels, signs, types and symbolism is overwhelming.  What else do you want?  What are the odds this is not it and He is not giving us these signs in abundance?

Even without all of this: God said Israel would be back in the land in the last days, the generation who saw the rebirth would not all pass away and the world would turn against Israel and try to divide.

He is at the door and these are not only the last days, but the last moments.

Be ready!  Help someone be ready!

If you missed the sudden catching away, the harpazo, the rapture, repent quickly.

It sounds something like this:

  • God I acknowledge your existence
  • God I acknowledge that you made me, this world and everything in it and I owe everything and every breath to you
  • I thank you for your great patience and for this last opportunity to escape the ruin that was ready to take me
  • I acknowledge my need to humble myself, acknowledge I have not submitted and I need to.
  • I acknowledge that I need a rescue and you are my only hope
  • I thank you for the free gift of rescue, when sin separated me from your perfect Holy standard of perfection and Christ took your wrath and my punishment on Himself.
  • I accept your free gift as the only way into your presence and to be free of sin.
  • I will submit to you, follow you and reject following anything that is not our will, even if I starve or am martyred.  Your are Lord and I acknowledge You as good Father, Friend, Savior and as the rightful Lord of my every thought and action.
  • I trust you and thank you for all that You have for me. (Click to Source)

Your Daily Readings – Verse of the Day – Psalms 19:14 – May 22, 2018

Psalms 19:1-14

book-open-study-reading-text-bible

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

West Virginia 7th-graders told to declare submission to Allah

Lesson plan included writing out Islamic profession of faith
classroom-2093744_1280-1280x640

Seventh-graders at a West Virginia public school were asked to write the Islamic declaration of faith in Arabic calligraphy in a social-studies class, drawing outrage from a Christian parent.
quran

Parent Rich Penkoski contacted Principal Ron Branch at Mountain Ridge Middle School in Gerrardstown about the assignment, which was part of a world-religions unit, the Christian Post reported.

The assignment was included in a packet sent home with students of information about the history of Islam, the prophet Muhammad and the five pillars of the religion.

But Penkoski, the Christian Post said, was most upset with a worksheet that instructs students to practice calligraphy by copying by hand the Arabic form of the Shahada.

The Shahada is the Islamic profession of faith that declares Allah is the one true god and Muhammad is his messenger.

“I saw the assignment of writing the Shahada in Arabic. Their excuse was calligraphy,” Penkoski told the Christian Post. “I was like, ‘Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!’ First of all, calligraphy was invented in China 3,000 years prior to Muhammad. The fact that they were trying to get my daughter to write that disturbed me.’

“I said, ‘That is not happening. My daughter is not doing that,’” he said. “My daughter told me that if she didn’t do the assignment then she was going to get a [detention] slip.”

Penkoski said the school told him the packet was an optional assignment. But he claims the school is only now saying it is optional because of his protest.

“Why would they print all that out and then tell them they don’t have to do it?” Penkoski asked. “When they were given a packet [on Christianity], which didn’t go into that much detail, they did have to write an essay. So you’re telling me they don’t have to do it now that I called you on it? It makes no sense and it is not consistent.”

Penkoski said his daughter claimed the teacher told her the Shahada assignment was mandatory.

Principal Ron Branch told the Christian Post in an email the Shahada calligraphy was not officially assigned to students.

“There were two calligraphy activities in the packet. One involving the Shahada and one that is just English letters in which the students can write whatever they want in calligraphy,” Branch said. “The teacher told the students that they could do these activities if they wanted.”

Branch said the world religions unit gives each religion “equitable treatment.”

“The units on Judaism and Christianity were about a week-and-a-half. Each of the other units should take about a week. Jesus was taught,” he said. “The students read the chapter in our textbook that discusses Christianity’s belief that Jesus is the Son of God and salvation. They also discussed the Sermon on the Mount, the Last Supper and Jesus’ Betrayal, the Trinity, and the Lord’s Prayer, among other topics.”

Brielle Penkoski told the Christian Post that she didn’t recall any instruction on the Lord’s Prayer.

“We did [the unit on Christianity] over a week and two days. We watched two different videos. We didn’t finish them. They taught a little bit about Moses and the Ten Commandments, Peter and Paul,” she explained. “We learned about the Israelites and how they are being persecuted by the Romans. We were told about the Jews and told a little bit about Jesus.”

Penkoski showed the Christian Post other packets that were handed out to the students on Christianity and Judaism.

‘The true faith, Islam’

The influence of Islam in public schools has become a nationwide issue.

Parents are suing the San Diego Unified School District over an “anti-Islamophobia” initiative with the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations, charging that teaching about Islam amounts to radical indoctrination.

In May 2017, in Groesbeck, Texas, a couple moved their sixth-grade daughter to a new school after they discovered her history homework assignment on Islam.

In late March 2017, as WND reported, a middle school in Chatham, New Jersey, was using a cartoon video to teach the Five Pillars of Islam to seventh-grade students, prompting two parents to obtain legal services to fight the school district, which has ignored their concerns.

Teaching the five pillars of Islam also created an uproar in Summerville, South Carolina, and in Loganville, Georgia, last year.

WND also reported in March 2017 a high school in Frisco, Texas, set up an Islamic prayer room specifically for Muslim students to pray on campus during school hours. The same type of prayer rooms have been set up in high schools in St. Cloud, Minnesota, and other school districts.

In 2015, parents in Tennessee asked the governor, legislature and state education department to investigate pro-Islam bias in textbooks and other materials.

WND reported in 2012 ACT for America conducted an analysis of 38 textbooks used in the sixth through 12th grades in public schools and found that since the 1990s, discussions of Islam are taking up more and more pages, while the space devoted to Judaism and Christianity has simultaneously decreased.

In 2009, Gilbert T. Sewall, director of the American Textbook Council, a group that reviews history books, told Fox News the texts were “whitewashing” Islamic extremism and key subjects such as jihad, Islamic law and the status of women.

Also in 2009, WND reported the middle school textbook “History Alive! The Medieval World and Beyond,” published by Teachers’ Curriculum Institute, said an Islamic “jihad” is an effort by Muslims to convince “others to take up worthy causes, such as funding medical research.”

In 2006, WND reported a school in Oregon taught Islam by having students study and learn Muslim prayers and dress as Muslims.

WND reported in 2003 a prominent Muslim leader who eventually was convicted on terror-related charges helped write the “Religious Expression in Public Schools” guidelines issued by President Bill Clinton.

In 2001, shortly after the 9/11 attacks, seventh graders in Byron, California, were taught a three-week course on Islam that required them to learn 25 Islamic terms, 20 proverbs, Islam’s Five Pillars of Faith, 10 key Islamic prophets and disciples, recite from the Quran, wear a robe during class, adopt a Muslim name and stage their own “holy war” in a dice game.

Parents went to court to uphold their right to reject the class for their children, but a federal judge ruled against them, and in 2006, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider their appeal. (Click to Source)

‘We call them The Walking Dead’: At least TWENTY-FIVE people ‘looking like zombies’ collapse after overdosing on synthetic marijuana known as ‘K2’ on the same New York street where 33 people overdosed two years ago

  • At least 25 people were hospitalized after overdosing on synthetic marijuana
  • Police responded at 7.30pm to Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood
  • The neighborhood has become known as ‘ground zero’ for K2 addicts 
  • All those who were hospitalized do not have life-threatening conditions
  • One man was arrested on Saturday night in connection to the mass overdose
  • K2 has been known to induce paranoia, confusion, vomiting and hallucinations

They looked more like zombies than New Yorkers as they slumped against buildings and lay down on the sidewalks.

Police say they all had taken a bad batch of drugs known to induce paranoia, vomiting and hallucinations.

At least 25 people were hospitalized in New York City after a possible overdose of synthetic marijuana known as ‘K2’.

Police responded to an intersection in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood on Saturday and loaded dazed and confused users onto stretchers and into ambulances.

It is believed that this is the same location where 33 people overdosed on K2 in 2016.

Authorities received a call around 7.30pm of people found unresponsive on the corner of Broadway and Myrtle Avenue

Those hospitalized were taken to Interfaith Medical Center, Wyckoff Heights Medical Center and Woodhull Medical Center, and all are expected to live

Witnesses at the scene said the drug users looked like zombies and could barely keep their bodies upright

Over two dozen people overdose on K2 at same time in Brooklyn

On Saturday night, NBC 4 New York reported that the number of those who overdosed was believed to be 16 before those figures were corrected on Sunday.

Authorities received a call around 7.30pm of people found unresponsive on the corner of Broadway and Myrtle Avenue.

Those hospitalized were taken to Interfaith Medical Center, Wyckoff Heights Medical Center and Woodhull Medical Center, and all are expected to live.

Witnesses at the scene said the drug users looked like zombies and could barely keep their bodies upright.

‘We call them The Walking Dead,’ Israel P told The New York Daily News.

The 23-year-old, who works at his family’s nearby restaurant, said he saw three people get taken away in ambulances.

Another man, who declined to give his name told The News: ‘One of them, a guy, was upside down. His body up, his head down…Another one was lying down flat.’

Police arrested Tyquan Holley, 41, on Saturday night for criminal possession of a controlled substance after he was found with synthetic marijuana on Myrtle Avenue near Broadway.

Holley has a lengthy rap sheet with 18 prior arrests on charges ranging from patronizing a prostitute, robbery and grand larceny, police said.

Additionally, two search warrants were executed at Big Boy Deli at 930 Broadway and the Star Deli and Grill at 943 Broadway, according to police.

Authorities have called Big Boy Deli the ‘sole distributor’ of K2 in the area, according to DNAinfo.com

Three other men were arrested for selling untaxed cigarettes including Raddwan Alsaidi, 24; Marcial Cortez, 26; and Ashraf Rayshani, 22.

Cortez was also charged with criminal possession of a weapon, a knife, reported The New York Times.

Two people were taken into custody at the Deli and Grill on charges related to selling untaxed cigarettes, police said.

K2 contains man-made chemicals that act on the same cell receptors in the brain that THC does in natural marijuana. It is dirt cheap, often sold for one to five dollars for a stick or package.

Researchers have found instances in which chemicals in synthetic marijuana can bind much more strongly to cell receptors than THC, producing stronger effects.

Because the chemicals vary from packet to packet, the effects of K2 are unpredictable and can change from use to use, according to the New York City Health Department.

Packaged under names like Spice, AK-47, Smacked, Green Giant Scooby Snax, iBlown and Dank, K2 can lead to seizures, psychosis, dependence and death.

The products can also cause a rapid increase in heart, paranoia, confusion, vomiting and hallucinations.

Richard Rojas, who plowed into a crowd of pedestrian in Times Square in May 2017 – killing an 18-year-old girl, was reportedly high on K2 at the time, reported ABC 7.

More than 6,000 people have been sent to the emergency room in New York because of K2 since 2015 and there have been two confirmed deaths caused by the drug.

 Councilman Robert Cornegy Jr (in blue shirt) and Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo, whose districts includes Bedford-Stuyvesant, asked for extra law enforcement outside Big Boy Deli

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio signed a bill in October that made it illegal to sell or produce K2, making it a crime punishable by up to a year in jail and fines of more than $100,000.

In May 2016, he announced that there had been an 85 percent decline in K2-related emergency visits in the last 10 months.

Councilman Robert Cornegy Jr and Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo, whose districts includes Beford-Stuyvesant, held a press conference on Sunday during which they asked for extra law enforcement outside Big Boy Deli.

‘Right now we are talking about step up enforcements in the local area to make sure that this doesn’t happen again,’ Cornegy told reporters.

Shops that are caught selling the drug lose their license to sell cigarettes. But Cornegy said many area shops have found ways to get around the law. [rewrite[

‘Some of the local shop owners are now using what’s called runners. So, not selling it absolutely out of the store, but having people who are working outside of the store who are loosely associated with the stores doing their business for them,’ the councilman told New York 1.

‘So we have to escalate our efforts in an effort to stop this scourge in our community.’

More Americans than ever belief that Jesus is not the only way to Heaven

Why Jesus Is No Longer the Only Way for Many American Christians

By Leonardo Blair , Christian Post Reporter | 

bible-1948778_1280-1280x640

Just over two months ago, as winter landed its final blows of snow in New York City, Michael A. Walrond Jr. of Harlem’s 10,000-member First Corinthian Baptist Church landed an ideological blow of his own in traditional Christendom.

Walrond, who was named “One of the Lord’s Foot Soldiers” by Newsweek magazine, told his congregants that the belief that anyone who doesn’t believe in Jesus is going to hell is “insanity.”

“There was a time when you would see people in the pulpit say, ‘well, if you don’t believe in Jesus you going to Hell. That’s insanity in many ways because that is not what Jesus even believes,” he said in a viral clip posted to Facebook.

People take many paths to God, he argued, noting that he personally celebrates the paths others take in finding Him — even if that path does not involve faith in Jesus.

“And so the key is you believe in God. And whatever your path is to God I celebrate that. Personally, I celebrate that,” Walrond said.

The New York City preacher’s message drew criticism in traditional Christian circles.

(SCREENSHOT: VIMEO)Michael A. Walrond Jr., leads the more than 10,000-member First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem, New York.

“The preacher on this video is both right and wrong: he’s right in that all roads do lead to God; but this God is both love and a consuming fire. If you meet Him on the Christ road of His love you live, but any other road, be it religion, philosophy, or a miscalculation of the Person of Christ, the lake of fire is waiting!” Bishop Robert E. Smith, Sr., founder of Total Outreach for Christ Ministries, Inc. and Word of Outreach Christian Center and Academy in Little Rock, Arkansas, said.

While Walrond’s openness as a Christian to the idea that there are many paths to God beyond Christianity may have been shocking to some, new research shows a widespread departure among Christians from traditional Bible teaching such as Jesus being the only way to God. And some scholars have blamed this ideological shift in part on influential divinity schools and charismatic church leaders.

Rejecting God of the Bible

In 2008, a Pew Research Center Study found that more than half of all American Christians believe that at least some non-Christian faiths can lead to salvation. Nearly a decade later, a new study has shown that even among the most traditional Christian groups, significant minorities are also rejecting God as described in the Bible.

While 80 percent of all Americans surveyed in the new study, also conducted by the Pew Research Center, said they believe in God, only 56 percent say the God they believe in is the one “as described in the Bible.”

The strongest supporters of God as described in the Bible were Christians who self-identified as members of historically black Protestant churches at 92 percent, followed closely by evangelicals at 91 percent.

Significant minorities of Christians who identified as Catholics, 28 percent, and mainline Protestants, 26 percent, indicated that they believe in a higher power or spiritual force which is not God as described in the Bible.

Ken Stone, academic dean at Chicago Theological Seminary where Walrond serves as a trustee and adjunct faculty member, told The Christian Post that Walrond’s celebration of “multiple paths to God” and the wisdom and truth found in various religious traditions is in line with the school’s approach to faith. It is, said Stone, the “future of theological education.”

Shannon Johnson Kershner, who leads the 5,500-member Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago, Illinois, also caused a stir when she said in an interview last fall  that she too didn’t believe Jesus is the only way to God because “God’s not a Christian.”

“God’s not a Christian. I mean, we are … For me, the Christian tradition is the way to understand God and my relationship with the world and other humans and it’s for the way for me to move into that relationship but I’m not about to say what God can and cannot do in other ways and with other spiritual experiences,” she explained.

J. Lanier Burns, research professor of theological studies and senior professor of systematic theology at Dallas Theological Seminary, explained in an interview with CP that this shift away from traditional Bible-based teaching among Christians to a more pluralistic approach to faith in God is an agenda item of higher education institutions.

“This is the agenda of the universities at the present time because it is felt that maybe it is religion that has generated all the wars and so maybe if we can get rid of exclusive religion we might have greater peace in the world,” Burns said.

“We have got to get back to truth but I think it’s a very long way back now because I think the force is against us. I would include all the divinity schools here — like Harvard, Yale, and so forth. These are all pluralistic schools … I think they (elite universities) are the most powerful institutions in the world today. I think they train everybody indirectly,” he said. “I’ve had a fellowship at Harvard, I’ve been to Oxford several times and they have tangible power. And they are using that for pluralism … When you add up the university influence around the world it’s vast.”

Several scholars from both Harvard and Yale divinity schools were invited to discuss the role of their institutions in the growing acceptance of multiple paths to God in American Christian culture and only one, Harvey Cox, Hollis research professor of divinity at Harvard, briefly responded.

“I do not have much to add on this, except that I do not believe Harvard is the blame!” Cox said in an email.

Progressive Bias in Higher Ed

Mitchell Langbert, an associate professor of business management at Brooklyn College found strong evidence of a progressive bias among professors, especially among those that teach religion at leading American colleges.

In a recent study of 8,688 tenure track, Ph.D.-holding professors from 51 of the 66 top ranked liberal arts colleges in the U.S. News 2017 report, Langbert found that there are more than ten Democrats for every one Republican among elite professors. And in religion departments, Democrats outnumber Republicans by 70 to 1. A similar trend toward the left among academia was also observed in Britain. These political biases could be indicative of a theological bias as well.

“Political homogeneity is problematic because it biases research and teaching and reduces academic credibility,” Langbert wrote in his findings published by the National Association of Scholars. “… Even though more Americans are conservative than liberal, academic psychologists’ biases cause them to believe that conservatism is deviant.”

Data from the latest Pew Research Center study on what Americans mean when they say they believe in God, also points to a strong correlation between higher education and fidelity to traditional Christian beliefs.

The study found that more educated Americans are less likely to say they believe in the God of the Bible.

College graduates less likely to believe in active, involved deity

Just over 66 percent of American adults with a high school education or less say they believe in the biblical God. Among those with some college education that number drops to 53 percent, and among college graduates it drops even further to 45 percent.

Burns, who worked as a missionary to India for 46 years and has done post-doctoral research at Harvard and Oxford universities, also pointed to the failure of churches and lazy Christians. The increasing departure of Christians from traditional beliefs is directly linked to a departure from the authority of Scripture, he said.

“We are going wrong because we have moved the authority from Scripture to consensus. That’s where we are going wrong. When you say a certain percentage of people don’t believe in hell, well I go to hell conferences rethinking hell and they simply say this is not something that Christians can believe in because it’s inconsistent with the character of God,” he said.

He also blames the evangelical church for not discipling all church members to be ministers according to Scripture.

“I fault the evangelical church on so many things. My doctrine of the church says every member is a minister. So I believe the problem is the American people have paid charismatic leaders, even people like Billy Graham and people like this, to do the work of ministry for them. But every Christian needs to be out talking about these things. And I think what we do is we’re lazy. So we pay other people to do our work for us,” he said.

The Dallas professor further noted that he is worried that Christians who hold traditional Christian beliefs will be persecuted.

“I think it’s going to result in the persecution of people who believe in traditional Christianity because I think the universities are already against what I’ve told you already that I believe. I know that I am a minority on these things, OK? I’m not expressing a majority viewpoint I know that. But I believe it and here I stand,” he said.

Mark R. Teasdale, E. Stanley Jones associate professor of evangelism at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, Illinois, agrees that institutions dedicated to the formation of healthy Christian disciples such as the local church and seminaries “stopped being effective gatekeepers” who contend earnestly for the faith.

“I do think the local church, the seminaries, I’ll own that, that we stopped being effective gatekeepers within the Christian community. In 1904, we (Methodists) passed a resolution that professors in theological schools would no longer check their doctrine. So it didn’t matter what you believed; you could come and teach in a theology school in Methodism. And so as a result of that our theological schools have moved more in the direction of focusing on more traditional higher education studies in religion and theology, less in terms of Christian formation and character formation. There is a move to try and recapture that now but this is over a century after we have gone the other way,” he said.

“The internal effect that that has had on the local church is I think coming out in these much broader streams and changes you’re recognizing in the Pew research,” Teasdale explained.

“Seminaries are a big part of that. We’ve moved in the direction of wanting to be professionalized graduate schools and not so much schools that were forming people in character and it creates a cycle. So as pastors go out that have been developed in that kind of seminary, they don’t have the skills to catechize their own members very effectively. And so when people come to the seminaries they often come with a really not very well developed faith. They are not quite sure what they believe,” he said.

Searching for Deeper Meaning

While the slide away from biblical authority does not reflect among evangelicals as significantly as other Christian denominations, Teasdale explained that a search for meaning in a postmodern culture also appears to have challenged some to abandon deeply held beliefs about God.

“Before the time when evangelicalism arose, the focus was in making certain that we had absolutes. So the belief of modernity was the belief that there are absolutes. Everyone could have access to those absolutes if they simply use their reason appropriately and that those absolutes would hold no matter what the situation you’re in,” Teasdale said.

“What happens in postmodernity is that the idea of absolutes become far less important. Instead, we’re looking at a time when narrative story becomes much more important. And so people are looking for something meaningful, a meaningful story to make sense of their lives.

“And it doesn’t really matter much whether it’s ‘true’ in the sense that it fits with an absolute truth that’s out there somewhere. What matters is that it’s meaningful for you and that’s really what’s important,” he explained.

“I think that evangelicals kind of got caught with that shift because evangelicalism had gotten very good at dealing with modernity. It had gotten good with dealing with questions of people saying I’m skeptical of proof that there was a physical resurrection of Christ or I’m skeptical there’s proof that miracles could occur.

“Evangelicals got very good at responding to those sorts of things but then all of a sudden the whole nature of the culture shifted and people stopped worrying so much about whether something actually happened … instead, they just got focused on whether or not something was meaningful for them and that was a different set of questions,” Teasdale added.

And because some evangelicals are not sure what is the most effective response to questions directed at deeper meaning, this has led to a dialing back of traditional beliefs such as Jesus being the only way to God, the Illinois professor pointed out.

“Oftentimes, the other piece to this I think, is when they’re asking, ‘is it meaningful?’ it’s not the answer that many times evangelicals would give which is, ‘well, this is deeply meaningful because it has an eternal aspect to it,'” said Teasdale.

“The response more and more that people in a postmodern culture have given is ‘we really don’t care about the eternal aspect, we care about now. We don’t know what comes next and we’re not too concerned about what comes next. We’re concerned about the fact that right now we feel like there are problems in our own lives, that are upsetting the lives of people around the world, how is it going to give me a sense of meaning or improve my quality of life in the here and now?'” he continued.

“I think that’s been a big part of what’s affected evangelicals — trying to recast their telling of the salvation narrative in a way that is something that people will grab a hold of in a culture that’s more concerned about meaning and more concerned about affecting quality of life in the here and now than are concerned about dealing with eternal salvation or asking questions about how do we know the Bible is true.”

Finding a Fuller Gospel

While this grappling with postmodernism will remain a negative for evangelicals because it’s “uncomfortable” and “does disrupt the way that evangelicals have traditionally understood how they express their faith,” Teasdale believes it can result in a positive outcome.

“The reason for that is what it’s doing is that it’s stripping away a lot of the old debate that I think had in some ways come to the place of defining how people thought broadly about the Christian faith. It’s science or it’s faith, for example. You can either believe this way or that way. Everything is said in very stark contrasting terms and that’s the logic of modernity where things are said in those dichotomies,” Teasdale argued. “This allows for, I think, more nuance.”

Instead of, for example, using old style propositional evangelism — “God loves you and has a very wonderful plan for your life; we’ve all sinned; Jesus was given to us as a way to move passed that sin; if we receive Him then we’re able to enter into that plan” — evangelicals can go back to the Bible and develop a more “robust” and “fully biblical” type of evangelism, Teasdale explained.

“Jesus teaches yes, that we need to be forgiven for sins, no question about that. But Jesus also calls us to love our neighbor. Jesus also calls us to live in community with one another. And so I think that what the shift to postmodernity and finding meaning has done is open the door for evangelicals to find new and more robust and more fully biblical [evangelism], to be honest. To go back to the Bible and rediscover how much fuller the Gospel is that they’re supposed to be living out and inviting others to share,” he said.

Especially among more highly-educated Christians, the professor explained, there has been a lot of re-examination on the state of the American church, particularly in the era of President Donald Trump, who was largely supported by white evangelicals.

“I think the more educated folks that are in the evangelical camp are doing a lot of soul searching,” he said.

Teasdale, who is also a fellow at the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism at Wheaton College, said he gets together with scholars at the institution about twice annually to share research. The discussions that have emerged about the meaning of the term “evangelical” since Trump’s election, he said, have been “fascinating.”

“Most of us are scholars who teach evangelism. We’re all evangelical of some stripe or another. We discussed an awful lot. Can the term evangelical be used effectively anymore because it got so tainted? … and it’s not a matter of saying whether we agree with the core Gospel,” he said.

A Minority Lens

Looking at ways Bible-believing Christians can better frame their narrative in a postmodern society, Teasdale suggested they would be better served by acknowledging themselves as minorities in American culture.

“I think the church in the United States needs to learn from the churches in the rest of the world and understand what it’s like to be a minority religion. I think that one of the things that continues to afflict the church in the United States is the belief that we still hold the cultural authority that we did in the 19th century. And we don’t and we haven’t for quite a while,” Teasdale said.

“We still have all these big buildings and we still have lots of people working within the institutional churches and I think that we don’t realize the extent to which we’ve lost the cultural authority that we used to have.

“I think we would do well to learn from churches that have always been minorities in their cultures so that we understand the way that we would be more effective in approaching the rest of our culture in a way that promotes dialogue, in a way that promotes hospitality in a way that demonstrates our love but recognizes we are coming at it from a position that is a minority position.”

When it comes to home-grown examples of ministry, Teasdale pointed to the black church and immigrant churches as good examples of Christians who have managed to remain faithful to Scripture despite the cultural shift.

“I think we can learn a lot from immigrant churches, from black churches and others that have had to be in a minority status already in the United States, have had to figure out how to operate within the larger cultural setting. I think the larger white mainline and white evangelical churches just are kind of clueless about the fact that we aren’t in this cultural authority position anymore and we need to back off and learn how to be gracious in a minority position. I think we would be more effective that way,” he said.

In addition to learning how to operate like a minority, Teasdale suggested that high-profile internal disagreements among Christian denominations also need to be handled more discreetly.

“We need to find a way to deal with our stuff and get passed that because we’re hurting the larger witness of Christ not only by being in disagreement with each other but by vocally and visibly being in disagreement with each other. We won’t always agree, I understand that. But we’re doing it in such a bitter and petty way that people don’t actually believe that we teach that God is love because we don’t demonstrate it,” Teasdale said. (Click to Source)

School board stunner: There is no ‘biological sex

Plans to overhaul graphic ‘Family Life Education’ curriculum also tells kids ‘clergy’ not to be trusted

bee4b247205ef32fb64753d6bf383a46-1280x640

In an apparent competition among American public school boards to see which sex-education program can be made the most graphic and politically correct, there’s likely a new leader.

In a stunning development, the Fairfax County School Board in Northern Virginia is considering teaching children there is no such thing as “biological sex” and also that “clergy” are not to be trusted if students have questions.

Within just the past few weeks, WND has reported on the Albemarle district in Virginia, which was warned its explicit sex videos to classes of 14-year-old girls likely were felony violations of state and federal laws.

And the Sunnyside Unified School District in Tucson, Arizona, was warned that its proposed sex-ed program is both “illegal” and “obscene.”

Now, according to the Family Research Council, comes the Fairfax board.

“Already, each public school student must suffer through 80 hours of sex ed. That’s not a typo: 8-0,” the report said. “They call it ‘Family Life Education’ but everybody knows that’s a joke. You won’t find lessons on building happy marriages and healthy families here. No, instead you’ll find hour after hour of instruction on your evolving ‘sexual identity,’ on the proper handling of contraceptive drugs and devices, and on how to give consent for sex.”

But the report by Cathy Ruse said the move to something less “repressive” was being considered.

She noted among the ideas being reviewed was to teach children “they weren’t actually born male or female. Advisers scrubbed ‘biological sex’ from all lessons and in its place put the politically charged ‘gender-fluid’ propaganda term ‘sex assigned at birth.’ As one adviser explained: ‘Biological sex is meaningless!’”

Further, the board’s plan is to teach seventh and eighth grade students “to embrace transgender identity, but don’t tell them about the risks.”

“Advisers voted against telling children about any of the health risks and side effects from ‘gender transitioning.’”

The board also wants to stop teaching students “abstinence is the only 100 percent effective method” to prevent sexually transmitted diseases.

But they are to be taught “how to use every imaginable contraceptive drug, device, and cream.”

They want to make lessons on dating and family mandatory, meaning students would not be able to opt out, mostly likely.

And they want to remove an “offensive” word.

“The sex ed advisers have finally identified a word that was too offensive for students to hear. They voted to strip the word ‘clergy’ from the list of trusted adults that students might consult with sexual identity concerns.”

FRC said the district in Falls Church, Virginia, is taking comments on the plan until June 8.

“Fairfax kids deserve better. And the Fairfax School Board members need to find another line of work,” the FRC report said.

The warning to Sunnyside schools in Arizona came from Liberty Counsel, which said the Planned Parenthood-linked “Rights, Respect, Responsibility” program for children references necrophilia, promotes abortion and homosexuality, and “imposes radical, unscientific, political ideas about gender and sexuality on impressionable children.”

The legal team, representing parents in the district, is advising the school board, led by president Buck Crouch, against the “comprehensive sex education” indoctrination being promoted by “Advocates for Youth.” The program uses abortion-industry-promoted “standards” based “upon the sex data of Alfred Kinsey, which included timed-with-a-stopwatch ‘orgasms’ for infants as young as two months old.”

“The Sunnyside Unified School District is hereby on notice of the many legal violations contained in the 3Rs curriculum. The board should reject the 3Rs curriculum in its entirety, and adopt true abstinence-based curricula which provides accurate information, and respects student and parent rights, consistent with Arizona state standards. There are many such,” the Liberty Counsel letter said.

“However, if the district nonetheless illegally adopts the curriculum in violation of the current applicable, binding Arizona statutes set forth above, Liberty Counsel is prepared to take additional action to prevent irreparable harm to the rights of our numerous local constituents.”

The Liberty Counsel letter warned: “Displaying and advertising material that is obscene or harmful to minors is illegal under Ariz. Rev. Stat. [Paragraph] 13-3506. ‘It is unlawful for any person, with knowledge of the character of the item involved, to recklessly furnish, present, provide, make available, give, lend, show, advertise or distribute to minors any item that is harmful to minors.’ Yet 3Rs does exactly that, in 12th grade, instructing the teacher to present, show, and advertise and discuss pornographic magazines such as Playboy, Playgirl, and Penthouse.”

In fact, its lesson involving Playboy and Penthouse “is a Class 6 felony.”

Liberty Counsel told the Albemarle district its programming, also from Planned Parenthood, is “gutter trash.”

“This is not education. This is raping children. The school district has caused irreversible harm to children and parents. The school must never allow this to happen again,” the legal team said.

The curriculum was forced on students during a presentation from a group called Sexual Assault Resource Agency, which, Liberty Counsel explained, was allowed to present “pornographic videos and curriculum” to students.

Liberty Counsel now represents the parents of the mostly 14-year-old girls at West Albemarle County High school who were in “Family Life Education” classes on April 13. The classes were led by Lexie Huston, an employee of Planned Parenthood-linked SARA, the legal team said.

In a letter to the district and its officials, Liberty Counsel pointed out the presentation violated Virginia law protecting minors, including a ban on abusing children, encouraging them to engage in sex acts or perform sex acts.

Earlier this year, WND reported on a new campaign to rally parents against laws in 43 states that effectively protect porn in some education settings.

“Before today’s kindergarteners graduate from high school, around 4.5 million students in America will experience sexual abuse at the hands of a school employee,” campaign organizers said.

“Liberty Counsel discovered that the laws in 43 states have exemptions from obscenity laws that permit sexually explicit materials in schools that can facilitate this kind of misbehavior. These laws protect school employees who provide students with pornographic materials from criminal prosecution under the guise that the materials are ‘educational,’” the group said.

Liberty Counsel has drawn up a template to be used for states to fix their laws.

“It is ridiculous to claim that legally harmful, pornographic material magically becomes innocent because the person providing it changed jobs,” said Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel. “It is time to hold our teachers and coaches to the same legal standards as all other adults. From Hollywood to hometown America, children deserve to be protected from harmful materials, grooming and rape.” (Click to Source)

Hawaii volcano’s two-story lava wall blocks crucial escape route, residents urged to steer clear of toxic cloud

By Katherine Lam | Fox News

volcano-1784656_960_720-960x640

Lava gushing out of cracks caused by Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano over the weekend formed a two-story wall blocking parts of a highway crucial for residents to escape, as authorities warn them to steer clear of the plumes of acid and extremely fine shards of glass billowing into the sky.

A “small explosion” was reported just before 1 a.m. at the volcano’s summit that sent an ash plume 7,000 feet into the air. The wind carried the ash southwest, USGS Volcanoes reported.

“If you are at home, stay indoors with the windows closed. Turn on your radio and listen for updates from authorities,” officials said.

The active flows from some of the 22 fissures that have opened up on the Big Island since volcanic activity began more than two weeks created a 20-foot wall of lava on Highway 137. Scientists said the new lava is hotter and moves faster to cover a wider area.

By Saturday night, the lava flow crossed over the highway, cutting off the route for thousands of residents in the Lower Puna communities, officials said.

“[Look at] how huge this thing is,” Herman Andaya with Maui Emergency Management, told Hawaii News Now. “The magnitude in the flow, and everything.”

He added, “I’m speechless.”

Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency announced parts of Highway 137 was closed between Kamaili and Pohoiki roads. Highway 130 was open to residents, but cracks that began forming on the road also threatened to shut down that route. Authorities attempted to stiffen the cracks last week with metal plates.

Road closures, however, isn’t the only issue Hawaiians near the volcano are worrying about.

The Civil Defense Agency said Sunday night two lava flows that entered the ocean formed a toxic steam cloud caused by a chemical reaction when the lava touches seawater. The lava haze — or “laze” — is a mix of hydrochloric acid and steam with fine glass particles that causes health hazards including trouble breathing and irritated eyes and skin.

Joseph Kekedi, an orchid grower who lives and works about 3 miles from where lava dropped into the sea, said luckily the flow didn’t head toward him.

“Here’s nature reminding us again who’s boss,” Kekedi said.

Scientists said the acid in the plume was about as corrosive as diluted battery acid. The glass was in the form of fine glass shards. Getting hit by it might feel like being sprinkled with glitter.

The toxic plume traveled about 15 miles west of where the lava met the ocean.

The active lava flows and bush fire was still a threat Monday morning. Officials added that sulfur dioxide levels have tripled and warned people to take action to limit exposure.

Kilauea has burned some 40 structures, including two dozen homes, since it began erupting in people’s backyards in the Leilani Estates neighborhood on May 3. Some 2,000 people have evacuated their homes, including 300 who were staying in shelters. One man has been injured after being hit with lava spatter on his shin that “shattered everything from there down on his leg.” (Click to Source)

Christian therapist fired over biblical marriage beliefs

Told to be ‘social worker first, Catholic second’

marriage_definition

A longtime licensed clinical social worker who was ordered to be a “social worker first, Catholic second” and then fired because of her biblical beliefs about marriage is suing the agency that dismissed her.

The suit was filed by the Thomas More Law Center on behalf of Kathleen Lorentzen.

Lorentzen had asked permission from her former employer, HealthSource Saginaw in Michigan, for permission to refer a homosexual duo to another counselor for “marriage” counseling.

She then was fired.

Tyler Brooks, senior counsel for TMLC, said the case shows “that people of faith are under assault in the workplace.”

“The fact is, however, that Christians need not choose between their faith and their jobs. Despite what many would have us believe, discrimination against Christians is a civil rights violation that will subject employers to legal liability,” Brooks explained.

Lorentzen had no issue with counseling homosexual patients, except that this duo was coming for marriage counseling.

She wanted to refer them to someone else, because seeing them on that issue “would violate her religious beliefs and practices regarding the sanctity of marriage as the union between one man and one woman.”

The legal team charged that her supervisor “became angry with her when she asked to refer the couple to another therapist, as was her right under Title VII.”

“Federal civil rights law generally requires employers to reasonably accommodate an employee’s religious beliefs so long as doing so would not impose an undue hardship. In this case, the couple could have easily been referred to another therapist.”

She was summoned into a meeting, “aggressively interrogated about her faith” and subjected to dismissive comments about her faith, such as “they are just priests.”

She then received a letter informing her she was being terminated.

The complaint names HealthSource Saginaw, Mark Kraynak and Mark Puckett as defendants.

“An employee does not forfeit her right to practice her religion and abide by the tenets of her faith when she enters the workplace,” the document explains. “To the contrary, both federal and state laws generally prohibit discrimination in employment [on] the basis of religion.”

She is suing under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act and Michigan state law.

Kraynak and Puckett are supervisors.

HealthSource Saginaw did not comment, but referred WND to a lawyer, who did not respond when WND left a message.

The filing explains the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission already has looked into her claims and has given her a “right to sue letter.”

She’s counseled for more than two decades and never has had issues, but in this case, because of her Catholic faith, “she felt that she could not see them any further for marriage counseling.

She even became frightened for her safety because of her supervisors’ anger during a meeting, the filing states.

It alleges violations of Title VII, religious discrimination and harassment, the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act, breach of contract, and even interfering with her business.

“Defendant HealthSource terminated Mrs. Lorentzen because she engaged in statutorily granted rights, including requesting a religious accommodation and complaining about and opposing religious discrimination,” the filing says. (Click to Source)

The complete timeline of FBI / Obama / Comey / Clinton collusion and treason against Trump

Sunday, May 20, 2018 by: Mike Adams

obama-barack-president-headshot-meeting-press-washington

(Natural News) Over the last two years, you have been witnessing an attempted deep state coup against the United States of America, carried out by what can only be called an organized crime ring of treasonous criminals like Robert Mueller, James Comey, Loretta Lynch, John Brennan and Hillary Clinton.
