Dr. J. Budziszewski (of Focus on the Family)—Lied To Me

Catholic gold wall of idolatry in cathedral in Spain 

Gigantic Catholic monstrosities display idolatrous, extravagant wealth that implores people to worship what has been crafted by man’s hands. 1 Peter 1:18-19 reminds true believers, they were not redeemed with corruptible things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ—their sacrificial Lamb.  (1 John 5:10-13—the Bible) Please link: Paradise
 

Dear Readers,

This posting is regarding renowned author, Dr. J. Budziszewski, and his deceitful comments written to me: https://vallee7.wordpress.com/about/#comments. He is highly respected by the organization, Focus on the Family, and they publish his column: “Ask Theophilus.” Dr. Budziszewski is also a frequent speaker to groups such as InterVarsity, Campus Crusade, and the Veritas Forum. He resides in Austin, Texas, with his wife, Sandra.  http://www.amazon.com/Ask-Me-Anything-Provocative-Students/dp/product-description/1576836509

He forthrightly lies concerning his involvement in the New Age religion.  He is a Catholic, one who worships foreign deities, including the false Mary of the Catholic Church. This all goes along with the Catholic Church’s mysticism (magical endeavors), as you can read for yourself at Wikipedia, Catholic Encyclopedia, etc. God declares idolaters are kept out of heaven—Revelation 21:8, 22:15, 1 Corinthians 6:9, etc.

I contacted Focus on the Family regarding this idolatrous man of deception. Unfortunately, I received no response. I am not surprised, knowing Dr. Dobson was featured on the cover of a Catholic magazine that promoted Mary worship. He once placed Mother Teresa’s photo on the cover of Clubhouse Magazine; she was glorified as a role model for children. She forthrightly worshipped Mary and other idolatrous false deities. The magazine never warned children that idolators are kept out of heaven.

 Truth Project:

The Vilest of the Vilest is paraded on the Truth Project video series, produced by Focus on the Family. I refer to Roman Catholic Priest, Robert Sirico, who In 1975, performed the first civil-licensed same-sex marriage in Denver Colorado. Yes, this man is presented in the Truth Project.

Roman Catholic Report:

Father Robert A. Sirico was born on 23 June 1951, in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1972.
 
Sirico established a different kind of ‘church’ – a satellite of the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Church (UFMCC) founded by homosexual activist Rev. Troy Perry in Los Angeles in 1968. The UFMCC teaches that homosexuality is neither a sin nor a sickness and that “homosexual relationships should be celebrated and affirmed.” The UFMCC has been used as a battering ram against the Roman Catholic Church and Protestant sects who oppose homosexuality.”
 
In 1975, Rev. Sirico moved to Los Angeles and became the Executive Director of the Los Angeles Gay Community Center, one of the oldest and largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) organizations in the world. He also continued his work as a minister of the UFMCC.
 
One year later, on 12 April 1976, Rev. Sirico, dressed in a black clerical suit with a Roman collar made the pages of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer under the headline “‘Male Slave Mart’ Raid in L.A. Called a Mistake. ” As reported by the Seattle  P-I, on April 10, 1976, Los Angeles policemen dressed in riot gear arrested 40 persons participating in a homosexual “slave market” held at the Mark IV Health Club in Hollywood. The bathhouse was operated by a sadomasochist cult called the Leather Fraternity. Nude “male slaves” were led on stage by an auctioneer and inspected by potential buyers. “Slaves” went for $10-75. The undercover policeman at the auction told the press that he picked up a man for $16 following assurances from the auctioneer that the ‘volunteer for charity’ would perform specific sex acts on him. The auction room came complete with its own dungeons and cell blocks and sadomasochist apparatus including leather harness restraints and chains.

Sirico is a diabolical priest, who is a homosexual promoting idolator, a man who adhere’s to “another gospel” the false gospel of Mary and other idols. We are to separate ourselves from the false teachers! 2 Peter chapter 3, the book of Jude, etc.

Beware of the Truth Project as it holds errors and false teachers. R C Sproul is promoting this series. He is a Calvinist. One who believes the church was replaced Israel.  Another true danger sign regarding this series is the fact, Dr. Del Tackett, the focal teacher, is also a Calvinist! Calvinists adhere to many demonic lies.

To follow John Calvin, you have to approve of every evil thing. Calvin denied Christ, stating man would defeat and bind Satan not Jesus Christ, on the tree of crucifixion, in his Genesis chapter 3 commentary. To convince others that mankind is bringing in the kingdom today or that we are living in the kingdom age, every evil way has to be approved. (They do believe satan is bound at this time.) Calvinists are people of deception who deny the books of Revelation, Zechariah, and portions of the Old and New Testaments. They do no believe in an omniscient God who knows all and who has always known all; and never has had to rewrite Scripture to please Calvinists.

Zechariah 12:7-10 is one Scripture passage that exposes the folly of their lies. It declares Jesus Christ will destroy all the enemies of Israel and will glorify this nation, and the Jews will look upon Him whom they pierced. No one can legitimately separate these Zechariah verses.

In this series, people are encouraged to read Calvinistic/Preterist writings.

Another aspect of this video series that troubles my heart is viewed in the advertisement, an art depiction of Eve in the nude. God warns in Jeremiah regarding the wickedness of those who no longer know how to blush. Jeremiah 6:15 declares that God’s judgment was to fall on those of loathsome conduct, those who no longer knew how to blush. Nude artworks have always been part of the pagan way, but never of true Christianity, nor present with the righteous, ancient Hebrews.

God commands that women be covered in shamefacedness, and not their bareness exposed in any form. Christianity includes admonishments in prudishness and chastity. The LORD wants His daughters dressed modestly so men are not tempted to sin through their thoughts or desires via women’s short, low or tight dressing. I know that decades ago, people would have been completely shocked to see a presentation with a depiction of a bare woman in the church.

Also within this video series the terms “postmodernism” and  “world view” are promoted. I must ask what does postmodernism and our world view have to do with Jesus Christ who never changes and has nothing in common with this sinful world and its hip terms? One insightful person wrote regarding the Truth Project: “The Gospel of Jesus Christ is replaced by the World View.”  This world is a graveyard of death and sin, its only hope is Jesus Christ who will come again and rule from Jerusalem after he has murdered all His enemies; Revelation chapter 19.

Of course, we need to take every opportunity to witness to others so that they might be saved and be delivered from the Lake of Fire.

I must add, Focus on the Family clarifies its part in the New Spirituality religion. It has little or no disputes with the demonic Harry Potter book series and movies, and other satanic movies.

Furthermore, this organization uplifts movies with nudity, along with every other vile way: http://www.pluggedin.com/movies/intheaters/lawless.aspx

This Lawless movie review link does provide some warnings; though the main thrust is approval if you choose to view it. Focus on the Family spokespeople certainly would not condemn you since one or more of the staff viewed it. Its upper main red “CAUTION” box regards it not being appropriate for children. You can read, the viewer warning is not for teens and adults, just for children.

In the main section of the summary, that most will only read, there is no warning regarding sexual vileness.  It is not explained until one scrolls down past the listed “Positive Elements.” Not till you scroll toward the bottom, do you find any negative comments regarding this flick.

Focus on the Family forthrightly speaks of the nudity and sex in this movie with pornographic words to explain every detail. No Christians should put such words before their eyes. And I do not recommend the reading of this section. This is one website that I never desire to revisit!

Focus on the Family does not expose the sexual content as outright sin nor the mobster murders and bootlegging—the main thrust of this movie.

Review quote …  “all this movie has to sell, really, is star power, depression-era texture and bare-knuckle grit. And it’s got overflowing vats of each. The sets and scenery look realistic enough to almost beg for a sepia tone camera filter. And the actors deliver theatrical flair aplenty, from Tom Hardy’s grunting bootleg brother to Jessica Chastain’s looking-for-a-better-life ex-feather dancer to Guy Pearce’s fastidious but viscous special agent.”

Of course, no one should have viewed this R rated movie, knowing they would be deliberately placing wickedness before their eyes. Obviously, the viewer analyst, did not walk out of the theater when evil appeared on the screen. Plus, why would Focus on the Family critique a movie with an R rating, if they believed no Christian would dare desire to watch a movie with this rating?

You can see Focus on the Family is totally void of the Holy Spirit, totally carnal and Hollywood minded. Why would any righteous person want to promote this movie in the slightest way? How could any believer want others to place this evil before their eyes? God does not desire we deliberately place any evil before our eyes. He wants our minds clean! He wants this sin preached against powerfully! We are to be rejoicing in those things that teach total moral uprightness.

God commands in Philippians 4:8 that we dwell on that which is pure and virtuous. This creates mental healthiness. We must also dwell on the true, and Hollywood does not teach the true. And the true-to-life portrayals are only based on some truth; all Hollywood story lines are placed on a screen with all glorification, in choreography perfection. It is not reality nor can it represent the total reality that once was.

Hollywood is of the sensual, the fruit of the flesh, not the teachings of the inerrant Word of God.

I once addressed my concerns to Focus on the Family regarding their advertisement of the criminal and pornographic movie, “Cool Hand Luke,” several years ago. This promotional was placed in our church bulletin! They had recommended it as a movie that fathers and young sons should view together. Someone from this organization did respond to my concern; however, I do not believe they perceived it as being publicized in error. It is difficult to comprehend that they discerned this movie as Biblically pure and honoring to the LORD Jesus Christ.

Hollywood is owned by satan; yet, Focus on the Family, advertises for Hollywood. Only God knows their motivation, though a money aspect would not surprise me.

It is unbelievable that a Christian organization would advertise satan’s realm. Obviously, very nasty people work for Focus on the Family.

We are to come out from amongst the unsaved and their notorious ways, and be separate—2 Corinthians 6:14f.

An apostate age surrounds true believers. Matthew 7:21-23 teaches that many will come in Christ’s name saying we have done this and that in the way of ministry. Christ will respond with that fact He never knew them, because they were of the way of iniquity or sin—meaning they did not follow the paths of purity, innocence, holiness, righteousness, etc. They are the participants in wicked promoting!
