WHY CHRISTIANS ARE PERSECUTED

David Kupelian on real reason believers have been attacked ever since Jesus walked the earth

Resurrection-Lazarus-Wiki-Commons

Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? … And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes; … Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.

But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done. Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles. If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation. … Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

– John 11:39-40, 43-48, 53

The story of Jesus Christ raising Lazarus from the dead is one of the most dramatic in the New Testament. Yet, almost as amazing as bringing a man back to life after four days in the grave is the authorities’ reaction to this astonishing miracle: It made them want to kill Jesus.

This cosmic irony – of genuine godliness inspiring loathing and violence – has been reflected throughout our world ever since.

Christianity inspired hostility from the beginning; not only was Jesus crucified, but 11 of the 12 apostles were martyred.

Today, sincere followers of Jesus Christ are under attack everywhere, not only in lands dominated by religions and governments hostile to Christianity, but increasingly in those parts of the world historically home to, and founded by, Christians.

Think of it. The most transcendent way of life a man or woman can embrace on this earth – one that commands not only that you love God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself, but that you “love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you” – is cursed, hated and persecuted.

This persecution shows up in a broad spectrum of ways. In the United States it is, as a rule, far less overt and brutal than overseas, taking the form of censorship, demonization and criminalization – for example, the never-ending prosecutions of Christian businesses and individuals (including the jailing of a Christian county clerk) for being unwilling to actively participate in homosexual weddings. Then there are the ubiquitous assaults on Christian expression in the public square, online and within our public schools and armed forces, and the ongoing destruction of Christian memorials, crosses, nativity scenes and the like, and even the recent equating of Christianity with white supremacism and the open mockery of prayer.

Of course, in much of the rest of the world no such subtlety or restraints exist, with scores of nations persecuting, torturing, enslaving and slaughtering Christians daily.

By every measure, Christian persecution – and even more fundamentally, fear and loathing of biblical Christianity – is growing worldwide, even in the once-Christian West, including Europe, the United Kingdom and North America.

The most appalling manifestation within the U.S. has been church shooting massacres, including September 2017’s church shooting in Tennessee and the following November’s mass-murder in rural Texas when a militant atheist, calling believers “stupid,” slaughtered 26 churchgoers and injured dozens more.

Around the world, sums up Open Doors, a ministry serving the needs of the persecuted faithful, “Christians are being persecuted in more countries and in more ways than ever before.”

Why is this happening?

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. – John 3:19-20

In many parts of the globe, the reasons Christian believers are targeted are clear enough: Christians are considered “infidels” by millions of Muslims taught from birth that such are deserving of death or forced conversion to Islam, or else dhimmitude (subservient second-class status including a punitive tax). Likewise, the ruling elite in communist societies indoctrinates the population that there is no God – or, as in North Korea, that their leader is a god – rendering Christianity a serious competitor for the people’s loyalty and thus a mortal threat to communists’ limitless ambitions to power.

But even in America, Christian believers are increasingly reviled in a land historically founded as an explicitly Christian one. America’s culture today is not merely un-Christian, but anti-Christian. The news and entertainment media mock and belittle Christian beliefs as do most of the nation’s colleges and universities, while the political left increasingly equates biblical values with ignorance and bigotry at best, and at worst, with white nationalism and fascism. Unfortunately, this growing antipathy toward Christianity was turbocharged by President Obama, who for eight years openly denigrated the very faith he claims to follow. In reality, raised by a Muslim stepfather and schooled as a follower of Islam in Indonesia, Obama later embraced the atheistic religion of Marxism for decades – and he has never publicly renounced nor even criticized either one.

But let us now turn up the magnification and take a much closer look at what actually underlies today’s growing antagonism toward the followers and teachings of Christ.

Bear with me, please, because it may seem at first as though we’re not dealing directly with the subject at hand – Christian persecution – although you’ll soon see we have arrived at the very heart of the matter.

Let’s zoom in on a common scene in 21st-century America. For the nearly four-and-a-half decades since Roe v. Wade, pro-lifers – the vast majority of them Christians – have been standing vigil and praying outside abortion clinics across the country and, when opportunity arises, speaking to the mostly young women entering therein. As a rule, these “sidewalk counselors” demonstrate genuine love and concern for both mother and child, frequently offering to take the expectant mother to a nearby pro-life crisis pregnancy center that gives free ultrasounds, counseling and support in dealing with a crisis pregnancy without abortion. Countless women have been helped this way; otherwise, pro-lifers wouldn’t engage in this outreach year after year.

But some women – and a great many of the abortion clinics’ staffers – insist they witness vile, hateful, vicious verbal assaults from the pro-life interventionists. It’s not true, of course. I have known many pro-life activists and sidewalk counselors, including some who offer – out of their own personal substance – to help these girls, to pay their way, even take them into their own home to provide them with a loving, supportive, life-affirming alternative to abortion. They are motivated by love.

Why, then, do some people experience the genuine concern of kindhearted, well-intentioned people as vile, vicious and abusive?

March-for-Life-2013-Wiki-Commons

Only because, in order to head down the dark path toward aborting their child, they have had to stifle or ignore their own conscience – that little spark of God within, the moral compass in every human being that illuminates right from wrong. And what happens when this conscience, which they have managed for the time being to evade, suddenly pops out in another person and speaks eloquently and boldly to them? They react to the voice of conscience in the pro-lifer the same way they react to their own conscience – as an adversary to be discredited and overcome.

In essence, since they feel pain when the Christian pro-lifer speaks to them, they conclude that the person did something terribly wrong to them!

But in reality, all that’s happening is the light of truth shining through one soul is exposing a dark deed in another – in this case, fortunately, a dark deed that hasn’t yet occurred. (This is why some of the most grateful people on earth are women who have been confronted by someone with a little love before entering an abortion clinic.)

Much the same dynamic is replicated in other areas of life, such as when Christian business owners including wedding photographers, bakers, event planners and venue hosts decline on moral-religious grounds to actively participate in homosexual weddings, which celebrate something the Bible explicitly condemns as immoral and sinful. To many who have fallen into the highly addictive world of homosexuality, someone shining a light on their sexual perversion by simply declining to participate in a wedding ceremony is seen as evidence not just of bigotry and hate, but of a crime.

Yet consider that a remarkable body of major peer-reviewed research confirms what previous generations of psychiatrists and psychologists knew, and what many people intuitively recognize – that homosexual identification frequently results from childhood sexual abuse. Thus, despite today’s supercharged cultural and legal affirmation of homosexuality as a perfectly normal, healthy, even glorious lifestyle, underneath it all great anxiety and guilt persist because homosexual acts actually are morally wrong and disordered and often rooted in trauma. When that deeply buried angst over one’s homosexuality is awakened by some innocent person who fails to affirm that homosexuality is moral and wholesome, it is often experienced as “hate.”

It is not hate, only an unwelcome truth.

Ironically, though Islam is infinitely harsher than Christianity in its treatment of homosexuals – lashing them, throwing them off buildings, hanging, stoning, torturing or shooting them – rarely are any complaints heard from the left about Islam. Only about Christianity. Why?

Islam-gay-boy-TerrorMonitor-TW

Because the left’s real enemy is not Islam, it is the Judeo-Christian biblical precepts and commandments that for centuries served as Western civilization’s moral foundation. The left does not feel threatened by Islam because Islam doesn’t shine a light on the left’s sins; it just represents a different form of darkness and, therefore, causes no spiritual conflict or shame.

Moreover, for now at least, the left is strategically comfortable allying with Islam because “the enemy of your enemy is your friend,” and both Islam and the atheistic left are at war with Christianity.

It’s no coincidence that the two previous examples cited – abortion and homosexuality – both revolve around sex. Much of the American left’s hatred of Christianity has everything to do with sex and morality. Indeed, since the 1960s cultural revolution and the ascendency of the various “liberation” movements – “sexual liberation,” “gay liberation,” “women’s liberation,” legalized abortion and so on, much of it hinging on “sexual freedom” – one single factor has stood in opposition to total Marxist socio-sexual anarchy: biblical morality.

That’s right. Even today, most of those so strenuously denouncing the endless stream of sexual predators being exposed in Hollywood, Congress and the news media fail to realize that the only thing that has ever effectively restrained such misbehavior has been the Judeo-Christian moral laws found in the Bible.

How ironic that the very worldview the left mocks is the one and only factor that has, for all previous generations, provided our society with a sacred core of sound moral values with regard to sex, marriage and family. The secular elite’s hypocrisy is staggering: America’s colleges promote sexual anarchy in every conceivable way, with Harvard holding its annual “Sex Week” last month, including a clinic instructing students on how to have anal sex. And yet these same institutions complain bitterly about the “culture of rape” on campus – a culture they literally created.

The very high cost of discipleship

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. – John 1:5

What about the rest of the world? In so many nations, life is more wretched and the human spirit more stifled than we in the West can ever imagine.

And in these dark regions, where the light of Judeo-Christian civilization has never dawned, and where the marvelous freedom, security, self-worth, individual rights and resulting entrepreneurism, innovation and other blessings of liberty have never existed, the dynamics of persecution just described manifest not as mockery and lawsuits, but as brutal suppression, mayhem, madness and murder.

For those who rise to positions of power in totalitarian nations, as well as for those unfree souls forced to serve as soldier-slaves of the regime’s enforcement machinery, the mortal threat posed by the very existence of the Christian Gospel being shared in that land – because of its exceedingly powerful appeal to the hearts, minds and souls of the people – is total. It must be stamped out at all costs. The darkness not only can’t “comprehend” the light – it absolutely can’t stand it and feels compelled to put it out.

The extreme penalties simply for being a Christian in much of the Arab-Muslim world, and especially for apostasy – converting to Christianity from Islam, generally earning a death sentence – are a measure of just how truly dark the state-mandated religion can be in many parts of the world.

egypt_christians

And yet, to the great masses of people living in totalitarian regions, hearing and receiving the Gospel message often is like being gifted with cool water in a stifling spiritual desert. This is why, despite the very high cost of discipleship, Christianity blooms readily in the most hostile places on earth. Places like Nigeria and Somalia in northern Africa, where being a Christian can easily mean having your home burned to the ground and your entire family beheaded, and North Korea, where simply being found to possess a small Bible can lead to summary execution with a high-powered rifle shot to the head. But many would much rather live with the extreme danger, yet with joy and the promise of eternal life, than continue in the living death they had before.

And then, there is Europe.

Currently in the process of being conquered by Islam, Europe has already largely been conquered by the seductive, atheistic, yet insufferably self-righteous “religion” of socialism/Marxism and the moral and spiritual emptiness it truly represents. Europeans rejected the stout Christian faith of their forefathers for the sake of gaining “freedom” from their prior bondage to old-fashioned morality, biblical values and the personal responsibility, self-denial and sacrifice that real liberty requires. However, that rebellion against their centuries-old Christian foundations has created a raging spiritual vacuum, which Islam has been only too happy to fill. With its rapidly expanding population – comprising both migrants and converts –Europe’s Muslims seem full of religious fervor and willingness to have lots of children unlike native Europeans, and to generate a never-ending supply of fired-up jihad warriors and wannabe martyrs eager to die while ushering in the Islamic apocalypse.

It’s been said it takes a religion to fight a religion – and Europe has none.

Indeed, the plight of Europe and the United Kingdom today is eerily reminiscent of the many biblical accounts of God’s chosen people who, having fallen into disobedience and corruption, were invaded, put to the sword and conquered by pagan armies serving an alien god.

Freedom from bondage

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. – Matthew 5:11-12

So where does this leave us? Our world, despite its natural beauty, wonder and awesomely dazzling complexity, is filled with the wretchedness of desperate people trying to bear up under the yoke of every form of bondage. Not just bondage to deranged leaders and enslaving philosophies, religions and governments, but bondage to drugs, alcohol, food, sex, gambling and everything in between. Human weaknesses like pride, doubt, anger, lust and greed manifest as cruelty, confusion, corruption, exploitation and criminality – and terrorism and war are never far behind. Even in the most civilized of nations like America, rage, depression, anxiety, mental illness, addiction, divorce, family breakdown, hopelessness and suicide far too often get the upper hand.

Yet, God is merciful. For into this exceedingly dark world, He sends a gift. The Creator of the entire universe, omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent, somehow manages to wrap His nature and goodness and grace and healing and majesty and a plan for redemption all into a tiny package – a present for mankind – and sends it to earth in the form of an infant. A wonder literally beyond our imagining, God’s Son is not only full of love and truth and innocence – basically, everything this world is not – but bears the ultimate gift of healing for mankind. The child grows up to become not only the most important person to ever live – the greatest example, greatest teacher, greatest religious leader and so on – but much more. He becomes the savior of mankind, the doorway to a new life for us, both in this world and the next.

But, He says, there will be many difficulties as we journey through this present life.

Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. – John 15:20

For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake. – Philippians 1:29

Even so, there is a sort of divine magic afoot, for all who embrace Him and faithfully follow His path to peace and fulfillment even in the midst of suffering, joy in the face of heartache, fullness of life even when surrounded by death. The magic of God’s love for us and our redemption is a great and mysterious heavenly miracle, yet down here at “ground level” we are called to focus on forgiveness: God forgives our sins through Christ’s sacrifice for us – and we, in gratitude and obedience, forgive everyone else’s sins. Everyone. Completely and totally.

Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven. – Matthew 5:44-45

If you think about it, when we bless those who curse us and do good to them that hate us and pray for those who persecute us, we can’t lose. No matter what. We become bulletproof. The good is good, and the bad is good, so to speak.

Moreover, let’s remember that as important as this life is, we are on a sojourn through this world to another kingdom. While here, we’re meant to live every moment of our lives in faithful service and obedience to our now and future king.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. – Revelation 21:4-5  (Click to Source)

Is Islam compatible with America? 10 questions to ask

OPINION – 

muslims-at-prayer_810_500_75_s_c1

November 21, 2018 (American Thinker) – Wikipedia defines Islamophobia as the fear, hatred of, or prejudice against the Islamic religion or Muslims, especially when seen as a geopolitical force or the source of terrorism. Yes, many people around the globe who identify with Islam are good, hardworking, loving people. But that’s a separate issue from Islam itself. Here are ten questions about the compatibility of Islam in America. Depending on your answers, does that make you an Islamophobe?

10. Are Islam and sharia law compatible with American culture? The generally accepted values of modern America stress a wide range of freedoms involving speech, sexuality, and lifestyles as well as equal rights for women, minorities, and a long list of others. None of this fits with the program of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) that affirmed sharia law as supreme, with the death penalty for those leaving Islam, punishing women who are victims of rape, allowing men to be polygamous, permitting wife-beating, and censoring speech that insults Islam.

9. Does Islam threaten to destroy our system of law and our Constitution? Islam is not merely a religion. It is an entire societal and quasi-governmental structure with its own legal edifice called sharia. The holy Qur’an calls for subjugation of infidels or non-believers, if necessary through armed jihad. Dr. Irwin Lutzer in his book The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent, describes a Muslim demonstrator in Dearborn, Michigan holding a sign stating: “We will use the freedoms of the Constitution to destroy the Constitution!” That’s the game plan. You see, sharia law is in direct conflict with the Bill of Rights. The First Amendment, for instance, states that Congress shall make no law prohibiting the “free exercise” of religion. Yet Mohammad said, “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him. Those who reject Islam must be killed.” Islamic law enforces dhimmi status on non-Muslims, prohibiting them from observing their religious practices publicly, raising their voices during prayer, ringing church bells, or saying anything considered “insulting to Islam.” Islamic law relegates non-Muslims to “dhimmi” status, where they are forbidden to propagate their customs among Muslims and cannot display a cross, Christmas decorations, or the Star of David. There’s a lot more, but you get the idea.

8. Are Islam and sharia law tolerant of other religions? Tolerance is a fundamental American value. That is the polar opposite of Islam. When Muslims are not in a position of authority, they naturally call for tolerance and cooperation. But one only has to look at Muslim societies to understand how far that goes. How many Christian churches are there in Saudi Arabia? Zero. Non-Muslims (infidels) are not permitted to visit Mecca? Christians are routinely attacked or murdered in Pakistan. More than 600 Christians have been arbitrarily arrested and detained in Iran in the past year. Iranian authorities routinely raid church services, threaten church members, and arrest and imprison worshipers and church leaders, particularly Evangelical Christian converts. Christian church leaders have been explicitly been targeted by the Iranian authorities charged with “unfounded national-security-related crimes.”

7. When Muslims claim Islam is a religion of peace and love, are they lying to the non-Muslim world? Ask Hicham Nostik, a former Muslim who now lives in Germany. He understands the prophet Muhammad’s famous quote, “War is deceit.” Lying is permitted to deceive an “enemy.” The Qur’an defines the “enemy” as “disbelievers.” There is no way to cover up the meaning of that. In fact, apostates who leave Islam are subject to the death penalty. Apostasy is a crime in 16 out of 49 Muslim-majority countries; in other Muslim nations such as Morocco, apostasy is not illegal, but proselytizing Muslims is illegal. It is subject in some countries, such as Iran and Saudi Arabia, to the death penalty.

6. Has there ever been a period in history fully characterized by peaceful co-existence between Muslims and non-Muslims? Apparently not, based on details in Robert Spencer’s new book, The History of Jihad from Muhammad to ISIS, as well as Raymond Ibrahim’s Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen centuries of war between Islam and the West; Pamela Geller’s Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance; and similar books written by Jamie Glazov, David Horowitz, Brigitte Gabriel, and Amil Imani.

5. Is Islam in the process of swallowing Europe? If any more proof of the danger of Islam to our society and culture is needed, look no farther than the downward spiral of Europe. Growing problems caused by Muslims in France, Italy, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Sweden, and Britain continue to be well documented. The Muslim takeover of Britain is so far along that I fear that only a bloody civil war could reverse the tide. Douglas Murray has spelled this out in detail in his book, The Strange Death of Europe. After 25 years of intense Muslim immigration, Britain features 3,000 mosques; 130 sharia courts; 50 Muslim Sharia Councils; and dozens of “no go zones” where Muslim “sharia” patrols ensure that no one disobeys sharia law. Britain has recently released from prison Anjem Choudary, described as the most dangerous Islamic preacher in the U.K. Among other pronouncements, he says, “When sharia law is implemented, maybe in 10 or 15 years’ time, [the queen] would be expected like all women in Britain to be covered from head to toe, only revealing her face and hands.” Or how about this? “There will be no more pubs, no more gambling houses, no more national lottery. All women would have to be covered up appropriately and wear the niqab or veil and so there will be no prostitution. By 2050, Britain will be a majority Muslim country if demographic trends continue. It will be the end of freedom of democracy and submission to God. We don’t believe in democracy; as soon as they have authority, Muslims should implement sharia. This is what we’re trying to teach people.” Is there anything about this you don’t understand? Could we get any Muslim leaders to denounce this? The Brits are afraid to.

4. Will Muslim immigrants assimilate? In 1991, James Walsh, former associate general counsel of the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service, said:

Immigrants devoted to their own cultures and religions are not influenced by the secular politically correct façade that dominates academia, news-media, entertainment, education, religious and political thinking today. They claim the right not to assimilate[.] … Such immigrants say their traditions trump the U.S. legal system.

But please, let the Muslims speak for themselves. Linda Sarsour, a leading Muslim activist, told the North American Islamic Society last year:

I hope that when we stand up to those who oppress our community struggling against tyrants and rulers that Allah will accept this as a form of jihad not only in the Middle East but here against the fascists, white supremacists and Islamophobes here and reigning in the White House. Our top priority is to protect and defend our community and not to assimilate and please any other people or authority. Our top priority is to please Allah and only Allah.

3. What is the record of radical Islamic killings since 9/11? The Religion of Peace website counts 34,034 Islamic terrorist attacks worldwide since September 11, 2001. Mosques financed by Saudi Arabia and Iran are primary sources of jihadist activity. Israel has foiled at least 40 ISIS attacks in Western countries in just the last three years. Since 9/11, an additional 158 Americans have been killed in 53 separate acts of deadly Islamic terror or Islam-related honor killing in the United States. Hundreds of mass murder plots have been thwarted or botched. Between 5 and 25% of Muslims in America believe that violence in defense of Islam is justified.

2. Can there ever be a reform of Islam? A titular reform Islam movement in the U.S. led by Zuhdi Jasser, a second-generation Syrian doctor who practices in Phoenix, says yes. But others do not believe that Islam is reformable. Muslims have attempted to reform Islam for 1,400 years and have always failed. In Indonesia last month, a rally to promote moderate Islam was canceled after threats of violence from hardliners. Leaders of such movements have been beheaded for apostasy. Jihad and sharia are foundational principles of Islam. No mincing of words will change that. Lying, deception, and terror as basic Islamic tools to maintain control provide a platform no reformer could possibly build on.

1. Does Islam belong in America? The companion question is, are Americans willing to take steps to neutralize the threat of Islam? In its current form, with the explicit goal of a global caliphate under sharia, Islam must be regarded as an existential threat. Specific ways are needed to deal with an ideology that openly seeks to destroy Western civilization. What could be done to deal with this threat? Before it is too late, consider these steps:

• Our political leaders should openly acknowledge the threat of traditional Islam to a pluralistic democracy and insist that Islamic institutions formally and in practice reject violent jihad as a condition for tax-exempt status.

• Our schools should teach the violent history and core beliefs of Islam including the strict rules and requirements of sharia law while contrasting that with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

• Muslim leaders who preach violence should be aggressively prosecuted for incitement.

• Congress should pass laws outlawing foreign financing of mosques or at a minimum require full reciprocity with Muslim countries granting complete religious freedom for Christian, Jewish, and other groups to establish houses of worship and to openly proselytize.

• Conspiracy and accessory before- and after-the-fact laws targeting anyone, including family members of terrorists, failing to report illegal activities of which they had knowledge should be strictly enforced. We can’t afford for America to become another Muslim-dominated nation. (Click to Source)

The Government Has Been Overthrown and FEMA Camps are Operational (fictional account of what is coming)

the-purge

The End of the Beginning

I had just arisen to take my puppy out to go to the bathroom. My gosh, what is wrong with him? It is only 255AM. As I arose I was knocked to the ground by flash grenades and suddenly men rushed in through every entrance of my house and very quickly we were all laying on the ground, face down, and tied up.

I was placed in a seated positioned, still bleeding profusely from being brutally arrested in which they called me “Christian scum”, and a “Trumpster Bastard”. I then heard them in my office breaking my studio equipment. Then they shot both of my dogs.

As I was placed in a sitting position I was read my rights and informed that my family had been arrested by the “Guardians”. We were being charged with crimes against humanity and the new global authority as evidenced by the fact that their search of my house found several Bibles and subversive materials such as a copy of the Constitution. I was also being charged with thousands of counts of “hate speech” for supporting the enemy of the people, Donald Trump, who had been executed six weeks earlier after domestic terrorists stormed the White House following the abandonment of President’s Secret Service  security team.

My family was still bound and was marched outside and I noticed that there were three trucks outside my house. I looked down the block and there were many of my neighbors being forcibly take out of their houses as well. Helicopters circled above us. There were armored vehicles every 4th house. I heard gunshots coming from a couple of blocks away. Some were screaming “We are Americans, you cannot do this”. Then there was a gunshot… and then silence.

I noticed that my wife was being pushed towards a truck two houses away. I started to move in that direction and was struck by a rifle butt and told my truck was “over there”. I was struck repeatedly and before I lost consciousness I saw that my kids were being herded to yet another truck. I realized were being separated and this was the last time we would ever see each other.  When I awakened I was bound head to toe and the truck was offloading prisoners to large buses which were to take us to our final destination. We were told if we did not resist, no harm would come to us. I knew my history well enough to know what lied ahead and sparing my life was not in the cards. When we arrived at our final destination we were met by Chinese soldiers wearing blue helmets.

The Ultimate False Flag

What was the trigger event for this carnage being perpetrated upon the people? It was perpetrated by the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing. Oh, he was confirmed but he was assassinated as he was being sworn in.  The country immediately was attacked in every mid-to-large-city by well placed George Soros subversive groups. They and their MS-13, ISIS and cartel allies were killing everyone in sight. Entire neighborhoods were burned down. Wall Street was destroyed by pre-positioned C-4 explosive charges. These terrorists were  yelling “Make America Bleed Again” in an obvious effort to mock President Trump’s MAGA.

Nobody was safe. Rand Paul was assassinated as was the Governor of Texas. My family sought refuge in an abandoned home and we survived.

Eventually the killing stopped. The Joint Chiefs were complicit in the stand-down of the military during The Great American Carnage.

All the Governors were removed from office. America’s fifty states were reduced to 10 regions and 10 region commanders were appointed. They had names like Pelosi, Feinstein, etc. The American executive branch was divided into two parts, a domestic and a foreign branch. Hillary was in charge of the foreign portion and Obama was given command of the domestic side of things. Obama promptly dusted off Executive Order 13603 and seized anything of value. Hillary began to invade lesser countries while building toward a confrontation with Russia and China.

The Beginning of the End

This story begins with installation of the Arch of Baal in DC one day before Kavanaugh’s Senate Judiciary hearing.

Michael Snyder told this part of the story best:

“Is it just a coincidence that the “Arch of Baal” has been erected in Washington D.C. on the exact same week that Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford are testifying before Congress?  The future of the U.S. Supreme Court is literally hanging in the balance, and many believe that it is quite odd that this ancient pagan symbol has been put up at this precise moment in time.  According to the official website of the Institute for Digital Archaeology, the Arch of Palmyra was unveiled on the National Mall on September 26th, and it will remain there until September 29th.  You can view a photograph of the arch standing directly in front of the U.S. Capitol building right here.  Just one day after this arch was put up, Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford testified before Congress.  Perhaps this is all just a “giant coincidence”, but things of this importance usually don’t happen by accident.”

This was the beginning of the Satanic revolution against the people of the United States. The midterm elections were fraught with fraud and the Democratic Socialist Party, having changed their name to the Bolsheviks took control.

Conclusion

Many of you are probably thinking what happened to my family? To that question, I would say, “READ A HISTORY BOOK”.

If you do not think it could happen to you, think again. If you don’t think it couldn’t happen in America, you did not watch the behavior of the Senate Democrats during the confirmation hearings. Also, you must have missed the fact that Antifa said it was time to slaughtering people (meaning you and me). You must have missed where twitter allowed left-wing subversives to openly plan for the assassination of American politicians.

NBC slammed for pushing claim Christian faith ‘is used to defend white supremacy’

1522617340054

NBC News was bashed on Easter Sunday after the network promoted an opinion piece claiming that Christianity “is used to defend white supremacy.”

The article, written by self-described “evangelical Christian” Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, was published on Easter morning and tweeted out on NBC News’ main account in the afternoon.

“We who believe in love and justice in America this Easter must reclaim redemption from those who would use it to prop up white nationalism and bigotry,” wrote Wilson-Hartgrove. “To fail to do so is … to reject the life and witness of the resurrected Jesus, whom Christians worship today.”

NBC News’ tweet drew thousands of responses, many of which criticized the network for promoting an article criticizing Christianity on its holiest day.

“I dare you @NBCNews to do something similar with ANY other religion,” one user wrote. “Oh wait, you wont. [sic] You are only comfortable attacking Christians because you know that they would never actually attack back. Any other religion would give death threats if you did similar on their holiday.”

“Is there nothing about which I’m not required to feel guilt?” asked another critic. “Today, in my religion, Jesus Christ rises from the dead and ascends into the Grace of God. @NBCNews, for the love of God, give it a break, please.”

“Man, I can’t wait to see what you’re supposed to remember on Ramadan,” Red State editor-in-chief Caleb Howe commented.

John Podhoretz, the editor of Commentary magazine, mockingly changed the name of NBC News’ online opinion page from NBC Think.

The op-ed was published two days after “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd drew ire for comments he made about Good Friday on Twitter.

“I don’t mean disrespect to the religious aspect of the day, but I love the idea of reminding folks that any day can become “good,” all it takes is a little selflessness on our own part,” he wrote. “Works EVERY time.”

NBC did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment. (Click to Source)

New Age Oprah Mocks God and Jesus on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert

oprah-winfrey-2014-696x464

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert hosted a blasphemous segment with New Age Oprah that they called, “‘Oprah Winfrey gets some career advice from a slightly less famous figure: the Lord.” During the show, they openly mocked God and Jesus.

As the show opens, Steven Colbert begins to introduce Oprah, but she interrupts before he can say her name. “We’re here with” Colbert begins, then Oprah blurts out, “God.” Colbert continues, “Miss Oprah Winfrey.” Being that there was a skit planned with a character “god” later in the segment, many would wipe this off, but with all the hype around Oprah and proof that she has denied Jesus and is aligning with new age guru Eckhart Tolle, we have to wonder if she was really joking or not.

Steven Colbert questions Oprah on if she is running for president in 2020, a rumor that circulated, and got liberals everywhere further enchanted with their icon. Oprah replies that she would have to “know it” and says that she’s very in touch with the voice of God.

When Democrats began to see her as their potential candidate, Oprah told US Magazine that she “went into prayer.” Saying, “God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it. And I haven’t gotten that yet”.

She confirmed that she still had yet to receive the sign she prayed for. And then, the cameras go to the ceiling where a projection of what Colbert’s idea of God must be. The projection shows a tired looking old man who says in a Barney sounding voice that he’s a huge fan “wow Oprah knows who I am, I can’t wait to tell Jesus.” The audience erupts in laughter.

Blatantly mocking the old-English language of the King James Bible, Colbert’s god says, “I hear thou seekest a sign, well is this clear enough?” He holds up a sign that says “run!” showing his support for an Oprah 2020 campaign. Choking on the supposed hilarity of the situation, Oprah says, “all I can say, god, is that run is now a part of my exercise routine, I can tell you that.”

Colbert’s god then tries to clear things up and bounces back in all-out campaign gear chanting, “Oprah Winfrey 2020! Yes, she can!” “Come on Oprah I had all this merch printed up, I put it up on my wife’s credit card, she’s gonna kill me.”

The skit concludes with Colbert’s god asking if Oprah would add the Bible to her book club to which she replies, “I’m working on that.”

Is this really what our culture finds funny? Mocking God and Jesus and acting as if our creator is akin to a child’s story that we grow out of like the Easter bunny or Santa? The show reduced itself to mocking the Bible by comparing it to the novels picked by Oprah as her favorites and put in her book club.

In 2008, Oprah presented a book intended for her audience to “awaken their spirits,” A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. Tolle is an extremely popular new age leader in the United States, his books quote a wide range of religious writings including everything from the Bhagavad Gita to the Holy Bible. He, like Oprah, believes that Jesus is not the only way to the father.

On her talk show, Oprah spoke of her New Age beliefs. One of her audience members was passed the mic to express her Biblical belief that there are two forces, our God that we can depend on and the power of darkness. She explains to Oprah that we are either on one path or the other.

Oprah somewhat angrily responds, “there is this wonderful book by Daniel Quin, it talks about one of the mistakes that humans make is believing that there is only one way to live and that we don’t accept that there are diverse ways of being in the world, and many paths to what you call God and her path might be something else, and when she gets there she might call it the light.”

This was spoken by Oprah years ago, but just this month the movie ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ was released in which the talk show host played a goddess guiding a girl to the light. Light is a term that can be easily misrepresented. Jesus Christ is the true light of the world, but beware because Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. The New Age doctrine is traced to openly professing Luciferians such as Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey who worshiped the light of Lucifer and call themselves ‘light bearers.’

Going back to the segment from the show, Oprah then debates another audience member who says, “There is one way and only one way, and that is through Jesus. If you don’t believe that, you’re all buying into the lie. Jesus cannot come back until that Gospel is preached in the four corners of this earth.” After such a statement, Oprah’s arguments are null and void and she ends the segment.

In conclusion, Oprah Winfrey has set the stage for not only herself to be seen as a goddess, but for every other person to believe themselves to be a god/goddess. This is the ultimate lie brought about by the New Age movement. It is the original lie Satan told to Adam and Eve in Genesis 3:5, “ye shall be as gods.” This belief draws many away from the father as they begin to practice and believe in their own ‘divinity’ instead of recognizing that God, our creator, is above all, and it is He that should be revered, not us.

How the Tech Giant Cabal Shadow-Bans, Censors, and Snuffs Out Your Christian Voice

censorship-610101__480

Powerful tech companies rule our communications today, and shocking stories are coming out about how they’re silencing the worldviews of millions of Christian and conservative Americans, censoring the messages you’re allowed to read and post online.

The latest high-profile case might be called a gaffe or “mistake,” but it actually exposes the tip of the iceberg in a much deeper, darker agenda.

This week, social network powerhouse Facebook came under fire for a survey asking users whether pedophiles should be able to ask underage girls for photographs.

The users were given multiple choice answers, none of which included “calling the police.” Instead the options ranged from: “This content should not be allowed on Facebook, and no one should be able to see it” to “This content should be allowed on Facebook, and I would not mind seeing it.”

Evangelist Franklin Graham called the survey “ridiculous and shameful” in a post on his own Facebook page.

“Why would Facebook ask such a question?” Graham wrote. “It just shows you how low our moral standards in this country have fallen… Facebook now says the question was a mistake—well, to say the least, I firmly agree. To have a survey asking this is ridiculous and it’s shameful. Pedophilia is just wickedness. The Bible says, ‘For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts. (Mark 7:21).'”

Graham tweeted a similar message.

Franklin Graham

@Franklin_Graham

Why would @Facebook ask such a question? It just shows how low moral standards in this country have fallen. Many people today don’t seem to recognize right from wrong. I’m sure Mark Zuckerberg & Priscilla Chan were appalled. https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2018/03/05/facebook-asked-users-if-pedophiles-should-able-ask-kids-sexual-pictures/395535002/ 

Facebook asked users if pedophiles should be able to ask kids for ‘sexual pictures’

Facebook says the survey was offensive and a mistake and says it has put a stop to it.

Peter Sprigg, senior fellow for policy studies at the Family Research Council told CBN News, “Transmitting this type of information is illegal. Possessing this type of material, child pornography, is illegal, so it’s absolutely incomprehensible how anyone at Facebook could have thought this was an appropriate question.”

Facebook said the survey has been taken down since it refers to “offensive content that is already prohibited on Facebook,” stating to the New York Post, “We have prohibited child grooming on Facebook since our earliest days, we have no intention of changing this, and we regularly work with the police to ensure that anyone found acting in such a way is brought to justice.”

This incident is just the latest in a series of moves suggesting big technology and social media companies such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google – which heavily influence cultural opinions – seem to be blind or in other cases outright hostile to issues important to Christians and cultural conservatives.

Sprigg pointed out that recently Facebook warned users that a story from the Christian site The Babylon Bee was “Fake News,” apparently not realizing that the stories are satire.

“All of their stories are untrue, that’s the whole point. And for Facebook to be so ignorant,” he continued, “shows a real ham-handedness.”

On a more serious note, Sprigg revealed another case of censorship. “I have a friend with an ex-gay ministry who was suspended for ten days,” Sprigg said, “He was accused of having hate speech.”

James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, who went undercover to expose Planned Parenthood abuses, told CBN News he has new undercover videos, this time exposing how social media companies regulate content.

“I think it’s very scary for our society. They’re rewiring the DNA of our democracy, censoring ideas because they don’t like the ideas,” he said. “It’s Orwellian, like something out of A Brave New World.”

One of the videos shows Pranay Singh, a direct messaging engineer at Twitter, describing how company employees identify hot-button language in tweets and then write algorithms to delete them and others like them.

A sample of the language he says would be inappropriate: “They’ll all be like: guns, God, America, the American flag and the cross,” Singh said. “Who says that? Who talks like that?”

Another undercover video shows a former Twitter engineer describing a practice called “shadow banning” saying, “You ban someone, but they don’t know they’ve been banned because they keep posting and no one sees their content. So they just think that no one is engaging with their content when in reality, no one is seeing it.”

O’Keefe says the terms they choose to ban reflect a clear bias.

“They’re talking about shadow banning people who believe in God, guns and the Bible,” O’Keefe said, “If you’re a Christian and you’re tweeting, Twitter will consider you a Russian bot.”

O’Keefe said tech companies like Twitter, Facebook, and Google, “Are not allowing information unless it fits their narrative. They are altering the perception of what’s newsworthy and preventing facts from reaching people, not allowing people to see that information.”

Twitter responded to the undercover videos by stating that they do not “shadowban” accounts but do “take actions to downrank accounts that are abusive, and mark them accordingly so people can still to click through and see these Tweets if they so choose.”

Twitter also said some of the people in the videos, “The individuals depicted in this video were speaking in a personal capacity and do not represent or speak for Twitter.”

Other examples of censorship include Google-owned YouTube restricting a PragerU video exposing myths about the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

Similarly, Twitter would not allow an anti-abortion advertisement from U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R – Tenn.) that blasted Planned Parenthood’s sale of body parts from aborted babies.

The pro-life group Live Action contends both Twitter and Facebook have restricted their posts condemning abortion.

In addition to suppressing Christian content, former Facebook employees revealed they were instructed to bury conservative content, and regularly did so, such as stories from the Republican CPAC meeting and pieces about Republican leaders such as Mitt Romney and Rand Paul despite knowing the stories would be of interest to its users.

In January, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced a new company policy restricting certain content their customers will view.  “As we roll this out, you’ll see less public content like posts from businesses, brands, and media,” his statement read.

However, critics say only Christian and conservative content appears to be what has been restricted. The analysis shows engagement numbers among those publishers dropped by more than half, while others remained the same.

The role of technology companies filtering the news is the subject of a new documentary by journalist Peter Schweizer, author of the book, Clinton Cash.

The movie, to be released in May, is called “The Creepy Line,” referencing a notorious comment made by former Google chief executive and chairman Eric Schmidt, who, speaking about privacy issues in 2010, said it was his company’s role “to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.” Critics say they’re well past that point now.

25,000 People Swamp ABC with Complaints After Joy Behar Bashes Christianity

mikepencejoybeharap_si

The comment made on ABC’s “The View” by host Joy Behar referring to Vice President Mike Pence’s Christianity is well known by now – and it turns out at least 25,000 people were so outraged they even called ABC about it.

Last week, Behar mocked Pence, calling him mentally ill for talking to Jesus and listening for God’s voice.

Her exact words were, “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct, hearing voices.”

Since then, the Media Research Center (MRC) has reported more than 25,000 angry people have called ABC to complain about the segment.

@BrentBozell

Our grassroots army have made more than 25,000 phone calls. That should be more than enough of a reminder to ABC/The View that mocking VP Pence and other Christians is not acceptable. They must apologize. https://goo.gl/s7kfhg

ABC News has been flooded with more than 25,000 phone calls since “The View” co-hosts mocked Vice President Pence’s Christian faith last week, disrespecting the former governor of Indiana for talking…

MRC President Brent Bozell wrote an open letter encouraging people to call.

Bozell wrote, “Make no mistake, the slurs against the vice president’s faith insult millions of Christians and are unacceptable. If there are no on-air apologies after this deplorable episode, Christians will tune out ABC programming across the board. And we will do our best to encourage it.”

And he’s not the only one with something to say about it.

Franklin Graham responded to Behar’s remarks, posting to Facebook saying the Bible is full of examples of people hearing from God. Graham quotes John 10:27 where Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”

He continues, “I’m thankful that today He still speaks to us through His Word and through His Holy Spirit working in our lives. Aren’t you?” (Click to Source)

‘Ignorant infidels’ in U.S. may have to be ‘forced’ to accept Islam

Dire warning given at Islamist conference in Virginia

Now this is the instruction, the laws, and the precepts which the Lord your God commanded me to teach you, that you might do them in the land to which you go to possess it,

That you may [reverently] fear the Lord your God, you and your son and your son’s son, and keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged.

Hear therefore, O Israel, and be watchful to do them, that it may be well with you and that you may increase exceedingly, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has promised you, in a land flowing with milk and honey.

Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord [the only Lord].

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your [mind and] heart and with your entire being and with all your might.

And these words which I am commanding you this day shall be [first] in your [own] minds and hearts; [then]

You shall whet and sharpen them so as to make them penetrate, and teach and impress them diligently upon the [minds and] hearts of your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down and when you rise up.

And you shall bind them as a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets (forehead bands) between your eyes.

And you shall write them upon the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

And when the Lord your God brings you into the land which He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you, with great and goodly cities which you did not build,

And houses full of all good things which you did not fill, and cisterns hewn out which you did not hew, and vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant, and when you eat and are full,

Then beware lest you forget the Lord, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

You shall [reverently] fear the Lord your God and serve Him and swear by His name [and presence].

You shall not go after other gods, any of the gods of the peoples who are round about you;

For the Lord your God in the midst of you is a jealous God; lest the anger of the Lord your God be kindled against you, and He destroy you from the face of the earth.

You shall not tempt and try the Lord your God as you tempted and tried Him in Massah.

You shall diligently keep the commandments of the Lord your God and His exhortations and His statutes which He commanded you.

And you shall do what is right and good in the sight of the Lord, that it may go well with you and that you may go in and possess the good land which the Lord swore to give to your fathers,

To cast out all your enemies from before you, as the Lord has promised.

When your son asks you in time to come, What is the meaning of the testimonies and statutes and precepts which the Lord our God has commanded you?

Then you shall say to your son, We were Pharaoh’s bondmen in Egypt, and the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand.

And the Lord showed signs and wonders, great and evil, against Egypt, against Pharaoh, and all his household, before our eyes;

And He brought us out from there, that He might bring us in to give us the land which He swore to give our fathers.

And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to [reverently] fear the Lord our God for our good always, that He might preserve us alive, as it is this day.

And it will be accounted as righteousness (conformity to God’s will in word, thought, and action) for us if we are watchful to do all this commandment before the Lord our God, as He has commanded us.   (Deuteronomy 6:1-25  Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)  Copyright © 1954, 1958, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1987 by The Lockman Foundation)

Radical imams from Virginia, Maryland and Texas recently attended a fund-raising event organized by an Islamist charity in which they were treated to a smorgasbord of teachings from foreign-based Islamic thinkers.

The prime delicacy was offered up by keynote speaker Habib-ur-Rehman Ludhianvi, a visiting Islamic cleric from Pakistan.

Ludhiavi believes America is a “land of infidels,” whom he described as “ignorant.” His comments are a ringing example of what Muslim leaders say when they are behind closed doors and in the company of other Muslims, as opposed to the public comments meant for gullible infidel ears, security experts tell WND.

The only reason the public knows what was said inside the Nov. 18 conference at a Holiday Inn in Springfield, Virginia, is because the gathering was infiltrated by Ehsan Rehan, the brave Pakistani-born journalist and editor of Rabwah Times who went undercover and captured video and audio.

The keynote speaker, Ludhianavi, is leader of the Islamic seminary Dar-ul-Uloom, which is based in Pakistan but operates branches in the United States, Canada and the U.K., including one in St. Paul, Minnesota, that opened in a former Catholic church in 2014. There’s another in Lawrenceville, Georgia, and others in Warren, Michigan, and San Bernardino, California.

On 12 Mile Road in Warren, the Darul Uloom Islamic Center and School is one of many Dar ul-Uloom madrassas that former Homeland Security officer and whistleblower Philip Haney has tracked and described as radical. Haney said San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farooq attended a Dar ul-Uloom mosque in that city and exchanged repeated text messages with the mosque’s imam in the months leading up to his attack on an office Christmas party that killed 14 Americans in December 2015.

The Dar ul-Uloom mosque in San Bernardino is a haven for activists involved with Tablighi Jamaat – a fundamentalist, proselytizing Islamic sect known in some circles as the “Army of Darkness.”

“Dar ul-Uloom are the evangelists of the Islamic world,” Haney told WND. “They emphasize children memorizing the Quran.”

According to its website, “Darul Uloom Michigan has been sincerely serving the Muslim community since its inception, and by the grace of Allah (subhanahu wa ta‘ala), it is now a notable Islamic seminary with students of all ages from across North America.”

At the Virginia conference, Ludhianvi advised a sort of carrot and stick approach to conquering American minds for Islam, starting with heretical Muslims who don’t believe in jihad. He said:

They are ignorant and there is no need for dialogue with them, God has given them two options, one is the holy book and one is the stick and if one does not accept the holy book they have to be forced.

The imam’s use of the word “stick” should not be overlooked.

On the same day Ludhianavi was speaking at the conference in Virginia, another U.S. Muslim leader, Jaylani Hussein, was speaking at a symposium in St. Cloud, Minnesota, where he told a group gathered at the public library:

I understand that our organization [CAIR] comes under threat. I know why we come under attack. It’s not because of our silence. It’s because we carry a big stick.

It’s no coincidence that Muslim leaders are talking about using the “stick” to whip American infidels into shape, says Rehman, the journalist who went undercover at the day-long event in Springfield, Virginia.

“The word ‘stick’ in Urdu is a common term used in south Asia to reference the use of force,” Rehan told WND in an email.

Rehan said he went undercover into Islamist meetings in his native Pakistan before he was forced to flee the country.

“Due to threats from these organizations I had to flee the country twice, once in 2009 and then the last time in 2012,” Rehan said. He now works out of Washington, D.C.

Even other Muslims who eschew jihad are under threat from mainstream Sunni Islam in America.

Among the “infidels” named at the Springfield conference was the moderate Shia sect of Ahmadiyya, who believe in a prophet who came after Muhammad and are therefore considered heretical by the majority of mainstream Muslims.

Commenting on the dangers faced by Islam, Ludhianvi said:

“The biggest threat that Islam is facing today is the disruption of the family system, for which they [west] are urging women to go out of their homes.”

Last year in his magazine, Ludhainvi issued a fatwa (decree) stating that the “use of cellphone by women in public places was against Islam” and so was wearing “high heel shoes.”

The event in Springfield was organized by two U.S. registered charities, Idara Dawat-O-Irshad and Khatme Nubuwwat Center, both of which enjoy IRS tax-exempt status.

The registration desk in the hotel was manned by teenagers who displayed flyers and posters denouncing the founder of the moderate Ahmadiyya sect. An exhibition booth lined with posters urged Muslims to not vote for “non-Muslim candidates.”

The event particularly targeted the Ahmadis, about 15,000 to 20,000 of whom reside in the United States, many of them refugees from Muslim-majority countries where they are persecuted. Many of the conference speakers accused the Ahmadis of being “infidels” and criticized them for having “abolished jihad,” according to Rehan’s undercover report.

During a question-and-answer session, Ludhianvi warned the U.S. government to “stop giving refuge to the adherents of the Qadiani faith [Ahmadis],” who he claimed were worse than Jews and Christians.

The conference ended with organizers urging the attendees to donate $100 each to pay for the expenses of the “cause,” Rehan noted. The organizers also thanked the “Karahi Kabob” restaurant owner for providing free food to the conference attendees. (Click to Source)

Pastor warns that millennials are ‘on the verge’ of losing all knowledge of God and faith

stained-glass-1280x720

An expert on millennials is warning that society is “on the verge of having a generation that has completely lost the knowledge of God.”

Mike Sherrard, director of RC College Prep, a high school ministry of Ratio Christi, a campus apologetics group, recently appeared on “The Billy Hallowell Podcast,” where he offered a detailed explanation of this concern and said he doesn’t believe it’s all that dramatic of a statement.

“Seemingly, no young adult has a biblical worldview anymore,” he said. “They don’t know who God is. Even fundamental things about salvation and heaven and hell and things that are in the category you might argue are Christianity. They have no understanding of these things.”

He continued, “And, so, there is a rush to catch up and there’s a lot of work to be honest, not to be doom and gloom, there’s a lot of work to be done because we have so many young adults that do believe in God, but they have very little understanding why they even should believe in God or who this God even is, which makes them of course ripe for the attacks of the militant atheists when they go off to university that offers them one compelling reason why they should leave behind the fairytales of their childhood, and they’re ripe to be harvested in that regard.”

What is Ratio Christi?

Ratio Christi is among the organizations on the front lines of that education battle. The group began a few years ago to “help equip college students to withstand the attack on their faith” that many have experienced on U.S. college campuses.

Beyond mere survival, though, the ministry also attempts to help young people “thrive” in difficult circumstances, working diligently to help high school students better prepare their hearts and minds before they enter into the university system.

“[It’s] a program whereby we can equip and train adults to meet weekly with high school students teaching them, helping them to understand the reasons why Christianity is true, why Christianity is good for this world,” he said. “Because we know that the attack on Christianity today isn’t just that it’s unintellectual, but that it’s immoral, that it’s oppressive to women, and minorities, and it robs people for life and whereas maybe 10 years ago, it was just Christianity was intellectual, now it’s immoral.”

He continued, “So, we want to teach students that Christianity is true, why it is good, but then also how to be persuasive and effective communicators of that truth. And, so, that’s what we’re doing at College Prep.”

Sherrard said that apologetics — the defense of the Christian faith — is an ever-popular field, as church leaders realize that culture is rapidly changing. But as culture seems to be transforming, so is the understanding that it is paramount to reach youths with the gospel, he said.

What happens next?

A few years ago, Sherrard said interest was much less pronounced, but that cultural developments have sparked worries — and action.

“As we have seen things happen and legislation on certain sexual issues, sexual morality, parents and pastors alike are now desperate for a tool to help their kids survive this attack,” he said. “So, they’re very receptive to this.”

Sherrard also spoke about Generation Z, the generation behind the millennials. He described its members as well as millennials as “passionate” and bent on changing the world, but cautioned that they have been “deprived of truth” and “eat it up” when it’s given to them.

“They become so hungry for it, more and more and more and it’s not just an intellectual game for them,” he said. “We see them quickly become evangelists and teachers.” (Click to Source)
