J C Penny (Excerpt from Christian Businessman)
In this day when business in America seems to be all about money and when there is crookedness in both high and low places, it is refreshing to think of businessmen who have put God first. James Cash Penny (1875-1971), founder of the J.C. Penny stores, is an example. His father, a Baptist pastor, died when James was a teenager, but not before he was instilled with biblical principles of living. When the young James got a job with a grocer, he bragged one night at supper to his mother and father about how “foxy” his employer was in selling low quality coffee for the price of expensive coffee. Even though jobs were rare in that small town, James’ father told him to quit. Though he was dying of tuberculosis and they needed the money, the preacher would rather that his son be unemployed than associated with a crooked businessman.
At first the J.C. Penny stores were called Golden Rule, because he was “dedicated to following the Golden Rule as a basic commercial principle.” The Golden Rule refers to Christ’s principle of “thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” Penny offered quality products at fair prices and treated the customers with respect. He kept the profit margin small. He tested every policy by asking if it was “right and just?” He made his managers part owners of the stores in order to share the wealth. Yet though he was Christian in name, he didn’t come to saving faith until he was older.
Penny gave millions of dollars to Christian charities. He said he would rather be known as a Christian than a merchant.
Conservative News source: A judge in New Jersey empathically ruled, in opposition to an atheist who filed to stop his Matawan-Aberdeen school district from using the phrase ‘under God’ in the pledge … rendering a sharp scolding to the plaintiff.
“As a matter of historical tradition, the words ‘under God’ can no more be expunged from the national consciousness than the words ‘In God We Trust’ from every coin in the land, than the words ‘so help me God’ from every presidential oath since 1789, or than the prayer that has opened every congressional session of legislative business since 1787,” he wrote.
And further stated: Even the New Jersey State Constitution references God, pointing to the fact the “very constitution under which” the student tried to obtain “redress for perceived atheistic marginalization could itself be deemed unconstitutional,” he wrote, the blog reported.
We know our rotating globe has never owned a day of peace to this point in history. Now, we have crossed the threshold into perilous times … now touching the era of persistent surging evil, as God, through His inerrant Word, predicted.
Proverbs 25:5 commands kings or rulers to remove the wicked from government so righteousness is established on the throne of power. The Book of Esther is a perfect example of exercising this truth. The prayers of God’s righteous ones can thwart wicked and murderous plots.
Above photo: Special kindness offered to officers amidst rioting and looting to show not all blacks hate police officers … many support them. Agitators will apply any excuse to take from others or destroy what others own, even if of the same race. Blacks were among those victimized. Besides receiving by looting, the rioters also are often paid handsomely by liberals in hopes of gaining more political ground.
Freddie Gray who was arrested by police in Baltimore, Maryland, held a lengthy police record. He certainly should have been incarcerated long ago with a lengthy sentence. It is amazing what criminals can get away with these days with minor consequences.
Tom Cleary posted Freddie Gray’s arrest record, which reveals at least 20 arrests:
• March 20, 2015: Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance
• March 13, 2015: Malicious destruction of property, second-degree assault
• January 20, 2015: Fourth-degree burglary, trespassing
• January 14, 2015: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute
• December 31, 2014: Possession of narcotics with intent to distribute
• December 14, 2014: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance
• August 31, 2014: Illegal gambling, trespassing
• January 25, 2014: Possession of marijuana
• September 28, 2013: Distribution of narcotics, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, second-degree assault, second-degree escape
• April 13, 2012: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, violation of probation
• July 16, 2008: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession with intent to distribute
• March 28, 2008: Unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance
• March 14, 2008: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to manufacture and distribute
• February 11, 2008: Unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance
• August 29, 2007: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, violation of probation
• August 28, 2007: Possession of marijuana
• August 23, 2007: False statement to a peace officer, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance
• July 16, 2007: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance (2 counts)
“A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray informed investigators that he could hear Gray ‘banging against the walls’ of the vehicle and believed that he ‘was intentionally trying to injure himself,’ according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post.”
The article noted, the unidentified prisoner, who is said to have reported Gray’s self-destructive behavior, could not see, but could only hear what was happening, because he was “separated from Gray by a metal partition.”
After receiving much dreaded pressure, he did recant on some of his story.
The van holding Gray had to stop on a couple of occasions due to Gray’s belligerency.
Six officers, three black and three caucasian, have been charged with a variety of crimes, including second degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, assault, misconduct, false imprisonment and negligent. Shortly after the charges were read, a crowd rallied around prosecutor, Marilyn Mosby, and let out an audible cheer. All six officers were taken into custody and later posted bond, according to reports.
(What is staggering, is the amount of news reports which state the police officers are white; not revealing, half are black.)
The truth has been broadcast by a few, disclosing the fact, Gray was not wrongly arrested, conceding he was dealing drugs at the time and possessed a knife. When approached he ran from police. An autopsy exposed the fact his system was ridden with drugs.
Video report from officer reveals more truth:
Ferguson Protestors want their Pay:
It appears the protesters have “received as much as “$5,000 a month to generate civil unrest in the troubled suburb of St. Louis;” but they have not been paid all the cash promised by their democrat sponsors. The money laundering organization is known as MORE. Some refer to MORE as “Rent a Mob.” MORE is a branch of ACORN. There is a photo of the protestors standing outside of the MORE office on the Internet.
London News: “Liberal billionaire George Soros (who, when a youth under Hitler, assisted in the confiscation of Jews’ properties; even today he reveals no hint of remorse. Currently he owns manipulative power, maneuvering the Democrat Party) donated $33 million to social justice organizations which helped turn events in Ferguson from a local protest into a national flashpoint.
The handouts, revealed in tax filings from Soros’ private foundation, were given to dozens of different groups which weighed in on the crisis.
Organizers from professional groups in Washington, D.C., and New York were bussed into the Missouri town to co-ordinate messaging and lobby to news media to cover events using the billionaire’s funding.”

Homicides on the Increase in Baltimore
Excerpt from Conservative News: Since the Baltimore riots have subsided, homicides in the city have risen and arrests have fallen, a report says. The police union asserts their officers “are more afraid of going to jail for doing their jobs.”
According to WJZ, Baltimore’s murder count is up to 38 in May as of Thursday, totaling 111 for 2015. The Associated Press noted it has been the deadliest month for Charm City in 15 years. Its latest victims are 31-year-old Jennifer Jeffrey and her 7-year-old son, Kester Anthony Browne. Both suffered gunshot wounds to the head.
Kenya Killings Aimed at Christians
(Condensed and edited)
Kenneth Luzakula was standing at the back of the Christian prayer meeting when two gunmen burst into the room. He told Reuters: ‘They killed all my friends. I was praying with them when we heard gun shots and two guys who wore hoods and carried long guns came in. “I escaped because I was standing next to the rear door, so I dashed out with one other friend. I could hear my friends still praying loudly and calling the name of Jesus Christ. Others were screaming. I heard gunshots repeatedly from the toilet nearby where we had hidden. They killed my friends but I know they are all in heaven, because they died because they died worshipping God.”
Mr. Luzakula said more than 20 of his friends were murdered in the attack.
Miss Titus was shot in the wrist and is recovering in hospital. She claims the killers went straight to a lecture hall where Christians were holding an early morning prayer service to begin their attack. She said they knew right where to go.
In one instance, the murdering Muslims shouted “Allah is great” as they shot and killed the unarmed civilians.
Gunmen forced three ladies onto their knees and started to interrogate them. The ladies said “Jesus, please save us,” that is when they were immediately shot.
Susan Kitoko, who broke her hip after jumping from a window to avoid the gunmen, said: “I was confused, I was terrified and was shaking, but I was not screaming and that is what saved me. The attackers were just in the next room, I heard them ask people whether they were Christian or Muslim, then I heard gunshots and screams.”
The gunmen were saying “sisi ni al-Shabaab” (Swaihi for we are al-Shabaab).
Mr. Wetangula said he could hear the gunmen interrogating fellow students hiding inside their rooms about their religion. He said: “If you were a Christian you were shot on the spot. With each blast of the gun I thought I was going to die.”
Those who were unable to quote sections from the Koran were shot on the spot.
Over three Sundays ago, we received a disclosing message from a missionary, Ignacio, whom we support, ministering in South America. He and his wife are currently residing in the Boise area; his wife is with child and I believe they will return to South America post the birth. They are attending our church during this sabbatical and we enjoy them tremendously, they being completely loving and humble.
Ignacio spoke of the many born again Christian students who were murdered in Kenya (170) by Muslims, not denying their Savior. He reminded us how the Muslim terrorists separated the Christians from the Muslims before slaughtering them.
He stated, we have to willing to die too, and especially in light of what is occurring in America … watching our nation maintaining greater hostility toward true Christians.
He has noted when one person is martyred somewhere in our world, a thousand Christians will move out in boldness. I have heard, usually 100 people, at least, come to Christ due to an offered life.
Every person who comes to Christ must count the cost first, knowing if they deny Him, He will deny them before the Father. No compromising allowed! Our life is not our own.
Yesterday, a local news station reported on the disturbances of Jade Helm 15. Local residents are not happy, not receiving any warning. These exercises are to train for “urban combat training.” However, according to the military posted info, these exercises were not to be engaged until sometime in July. This is not the first instance of not holding to the posted schedule for civilians.
More information explaining Jade Helm, with facts, concerns, disturbing instances can be located further into this post. The military is becoming more and more invasive and bold when it comes to frightening citizens and entering neighborhoods for show.
It is distressingly inconceivable, our godless, atheistic governance has led to justifying young children being brutally raped.
Conservative news source:
“California, Orange County Superior Court Judge M. Marc Kelly leniently sentenced a man to 10 years for raping a three-year old girl. He downplayed the severity of the crime by noting that the victim ‘wandered into the garage’ where her attacker was playing video games, causing him to ‘inexplicably’ become ‘aroused’ at the sight of the young girl …
Despite the fact that prosecutors presented evidence showing the defendant sodomized her while holding his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming, Kelly suggested that there was ‘no violence or callous disregard’ for the toddler’s well-being.”
I remember an incident that took place here in Idaho when our children were young. A black man raped a baby with the baby perishing as a result. Though this man sodomized and murdered the baby, he was set free. By God’s grace the man did not live long.
It is ludicrous how the liberal media will justify child rape by declaring these vile perpetrators are no different from others, they simply lust after children. There seems to be no end to justifying abominable behavior when a nation increasingly becomes atheistic and liberal.
Planned Parenthood has sought to legally rewrite laws to protect child molesters when the victims are brought to PP for abortions.
God says in 1 Corinthians chapter 6:9-10:
“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither those who engage in premarital sex, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor [a]effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Verse 11 offers hope to the sinner, revealing people can be delivered from their uncleanness through being washed clean in Christ’s sacrificed blood:
“Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”

CNN News: TSA (Transportation Security Administration)
fails 95% when it comes to detecting deadly weapons:
Male Passengers Groped at Denver International Airport:
CBS News and other sources:
It took three months for DIA to investigate! Then law enforcement refused to prosecute even though they had video evidence, because no one came forward.
Fortunately, now men are coming forward. Though, It appears, TSA cares little, knowing the investigation was placed on hold. We must be grateful the two employees, one a homosexual, were fired, though complete justice should be required.
Our Sad Demented World
Examining the nature of the homosexual movement and where it is driving the nation, we cannot ignore a legal brief which notes sexual categories once limited to heterosexual and homosexual have now been expanded to include more than 50 gender options, as defined by Facebook, and “some consider pedophilia to be a legitimate sexual orientation.”
Conservative News: highlighted is a recent report from Fairfax County Public Schools that advocates not only teaching about homosexuality and bisexuality to middle and high-school students, but the theory of “gender fluidity.”
This theory holds gender is entirely a social construct, and there is actually no such thing as boys or girls.
Paul Kengor: “We live in a rapidly secularizing culture that is destroying and fundamentally transforming things as basic as male and female. The differences and complementarity between male and female, boy and girl, mom and dad, is one of the beautiful things ordained by nature and nature’s God …”
Shared Showers in Schools
Conservative News: What dad would ever imagine their daughter having to share showers and bathrooms with teenage boys? Burke Community Church Pastor Martin Baker couldn’t believe his eyes. “The damage and destruction to our children, teens, and impacted adults will be incalculable,” he told reporters somberly.
According to Deputy Superintendent Steven Lockard of The Virginia district—America’s 10th largest: Has stated, the Obama administration will pull the County’s funding if the district doesn’t makes its bathrooms, locker rooms, and sports teams transgender-friendly.
Hiding Abortion Emergencies
Abortion 911 distress calls reveal why women suffer and sometimes die from abortions. This is not uncommon and abortion clinics have a deal with 911 operatives, sometimes demanding that the ambulances not appear at an abortion clinic front door nor sound the siren. Abortionists do not want their clinics to appear unsafe, exposing the widely propagated lie of “safe abortions!”
Recent death call due to abortion clinic mishap:
(The state of Ohio is not permitting any investigation—imagine that)
The frequent 911 calls from abortion clinics are usually due to profuse bleeding.
God says a life for a life and this, is at times, the case. No one gets away with murder and judgement day is coming.
“In the last two years 1.7 billion of our taxpayer money was gone to the wealthy child murdering (abortion) lobby according to the Government Accountability Office’s recent report. Planned Parenthood was provided 1.5 billion of the pie.”
Abortion clinic staff unwilling to assist the patient or her husband in a medical emergency:
Another PP medical emergency, this time in Spokane, Washington. Everyone manipulates to keep everything hidden from the public eye, all in the name of lies, murder and filthy lucre.
Good News: Baby saved from abortion:
More abortion Facts from Posted Information:
There are studies suggesting that more than half of abortions are consented to under pressure, which would mean that while abortion doctors are offering “the right to choose,” it’s often not their patients who are exercising it.
In response, Texas state Rep. Molly White has co-sponsored HB 1648. Known as “The Coerced Abortion Prevention Bill,” it would compel abortion clinics to look for evidence of coercion. It would also require them to provide a private room containing information about assistance programs, help hotlines, and a telephone with which to contact law enforcement.
However pro-abortion groups oppose helps for women under duress who do not want to murder their children for Planned Parenthood’s financial gain.
PP places sexually abused children back in the homes where they were raped, hoping more abortion money will come their way again from these traumatized children.
A recent nationwide study revealed, “78% of abortion-minded women who view an ultrasound image of their unborn baby choose life.” In 7 states, including Idaho, an ultrasound view before an abortion is now the law. Praise God!
Our president’s continual lie regarding Iran the land of terrorism:
Egypt Independent News:
Religious jurisprudence textbooks for Al-Azhar students address, among other things, the issue of eating dead human beings, quoting Mansour bin Yunus al-Bahuti, a scholar of the Hanbali school of jurisprudence who died 500 years ago, as saying that eating dead Jews, Christians and non-believers is halal (permissible by Islam) if it is a necessity, but non-Muslims are not to eat dead Muslims, even out of necessity.
During the Civil War, on MARCH 30, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a National Day of Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer:
Whereas, the Senate of the United States devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for national prayer and humiliation; and Whereas, it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history: that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.
Persecution Alert Warning:
East Java is among the more hostile places for Christians in Indonesia. A report stated a textbook on Islam used in a senior high school in an East Java province carries a statement that “people who worship other than Allah (non-Muslims) should be killed.”
It has witnessed assaults on believers, such as the multiple stabbings of an evangelist while he was asleep.
There are a hundred Muslims to one Jew in the world; yet, God continues to preserve His Hebrew people. The LORD God maintains His promises.
US Operation JADE HELM 15 or “Master the Human Domain,” in cities with Black Hawk helicopters.
Military posted info for civilians, unclassified:
Quote from training manual:
• Increased military presence
– Increased aircraft in the area at night
– May receive noise complaints
– Some individuals may conduct suspicious activities designed to prepare them for complex environments overseas
– Local LEO’s (law enforcement officers) are fully aware of the exercise
– Local footprint will be 60-65 personnel
– Personnel may be carrying weapons with blank ammo
– Some participants will be wearing civilian attire and driving civilian vehicles
Daily London News source and other news sources (edited): Seven Southwestern states will soon be infiltrated by 1,200 military special ops personnel as part of a controversial domestic military training in which some of the elite soldiers will operate undetected among civilians.
Operation Jade Helm begins in July and will last for eight weeks (though this has shown to be inaccurate, as some operations are in progress). The military, law enforcement, Homeland Security and FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) will operate in and around towns in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado where some of them will drop from planes while carrying weapons loaded with blanks in what military officials have dubbed Realistic Military Training …
Washington Post says there is no need to be concerned:
Jade Helm training manual
explains American citizens in the designated JH 15 areas are to report to authorities if they detect soldiers moving about to see how effective they are in concealing their whereabouts.
Also: “Isolation of entire towns, both physically and electronically; simultaneously cutting off the flow of both goods and services and information in and out of selected areas. Other exercises included in the overall plan concentrate on the removal and detention of high value provocateurs and officials …
According to sources inside the Department of Homeland Security, It is an eight week test of current plans to reduce and control events and populations engaged in unconventional warfare against the authority of the government of the United States and to test the working relationships that exists between the armed forces and the law enforcement agencies in the affected areas.
Remember, in December 2014, Americans were “unsettled by the fleet of US Special Forces Black Hawk helicopters maneuvering low,” and at times shooting blanks over cars over major US cities, including Dallas and Los Angeles; part of what it described as training in “realistic urban sites.”
(I apologize for the impure words near the end)
No one was warned and people were extremely frightened having no idea it was a military maneuver and fighters were firing blanks.
A pre-warning has many on the alert within the Jade Helm designated states; unfortunately, there have been citizens affected with no warning in pre-uninformed maneuvers.
Obviously, this administration has no concern about frightening people, including young children:
We have also seen this with armed police rushing into schools with someone pretending to be a terrorist with no one warned.
We certainly note this too with all the riots, shootings, and the burning down of businesses, which this administration justifies. These events incited in our cities in the name of race and leftist political power.
Our President’s Illegal Forces
Of course, we know Obama desires to legalize illegals for the purposes of obtaining democrat votes from those who break America’s laws. We must be grateful for Judge Hansen who refuses to cave into this administration’s lies and deceptions:
“Hanen’s anger is apparent throughout the order. One government assertion ‘is belied by the facts.’ A government explanation is ‘troublesome.’ Omissions from the government’s filings are ‘mysterious.’”
The Washington Examiner article notes that Judge Hanen even went so far as to characterize the actions and assertions of Obama’s legal team as “fabrications, misstatements, half-truths, artful omissions….”
So, for now, the president’s executive amnesty orders remain blocked by Judge Hanen’s preliminary injunction. On April 17th, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear arguments about lifting that injunction.
Excerpt from a man, Stephen, who is grateful for his stay-at-home wife. This has received a significant amount of positive publicity:
“In short, I can’t afford for my wife to stay at home. And I’ve tragically failed to show my wife the appreciation that she deserves. She loves me, loves our son, and loves our family, so obviously she isn’t doing any of those things for a paycheck or even for recognition. But it certainly doesn’t hurt to know that as a Stay-At-Home Mom her appraised salary is nearly double my actual income. So in a very weird way, this is my way of saying how much I value my wife as the mother of my child and the one who always has my back no matter what. You are more precious than rubies. And I can’t afford you.”
Stephen shared his thoughts on the blog We Are Glory, saying that he could not afford all of the work his wife, Gloriana, does for him, their 2-year-old son, Ezra, and their home on his modest salary.
Stephen started a tally of all the different roles his wife fills in a day, including nanny, housekeeper, personal shopper, and chef. Estimating what those services would cost based on prices from real businesses, he determined that his wife should be making $73,960 a year.
Maria Bartiromo, Global Markets Editor, commented that she believes the number should be even higher. “What he did not calculate into those numbers, I think, is the confidence and security that he has walking out of his house every day,” she said. “You cannot put a price on that. He knows that his family and his home [are] going to be safe while he’s at work. That is priceless.” A Salary.com survey in 2011 concluded moms should be charging $115,00 a year for their services …
Where would any of us be without our moms?
A few additional categories: nurse, chauffeur, gardener, painter, plumber, and seamstress.
Titus 2:5 “Wives are to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.”
Our president made fun, during his reelection campaign, of concerns regarding Russia becoming a threat to anyone. President Obama got everyone to laugh at such a thought.
Well, today the UK is not laughing along with Obama with Russia’s threats. This new side of Russia is being called the New Cold War. Ukraine has not been laughing at Russia either.
President Vladamir Putin is not a nice guy and murders any news reporter who dares speak a word against him.
London Daily Mail news source (Condensed)
Military chiefs have warned that Britain has entered a new Cold War with Russia, as Vladimir Putin threatened anyone who tried to pressure his country.
Amid growing tensions over Ukraine, Putin said ‘no one should have any illusions that it’s possible to achieve military superiority over Russia or apply any kind of pressure on it’.
Adding that his forces would always have an ‘adequate response’, he vowed to step up an ambitious military modernization, with hundreds of new combat jets, missiles and other weapons.
His comments sparked renewed concern about the UK’s capability to cope in the event of a conflict with Russia.
Britain’s top military commander in Nato spoke of an ‘era of constant competition with Russia’, while a former RAF chief said the UK was in ‘a different sort of Cold War.’
Putin is focusing on weaknesses in the EU.‘He feels Nato has pushed Russia in Europe and made him feel vulnerable and is seeing what he can get away with. If he sees weaknesses he will exploit it.
Sir Michael Graydon, former head of the RAF, said: ‘I very much doubt whether the UK could sustain a shooting war against Russia. We are at half the capabilities we had previously.’
Alan Cullison observed in the Wall Street Journal, sanctions sometimes provoke precisely the opposite response from what policymakers hope. In Russia’s case, that could mean a threat to America’s survival … Russia’s current circumstances could lead to dangers that dwarf the challenges posed by ISIS and cyber attacks.
Another Proof of Reigning Sharia Law in America:
Successful New Hampshire coach lost his job for circulating a letter on the web to our president regarding Islamic facts. Our president has proclaimed great Muslim achievements in America with not presenting any proof:
Dear Mr. Obama:
Have you ever seen a Muslim hospital?
Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?
Have you seen a Muslim band march in a parade?
Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?
Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper (female hospital volunteers from high schools)?
Have your seen a Muslim do anything that contributes positively to the American way of life????
The answer is no, you have not. Just ask yourself, WHY???
Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.
Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.
Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution? Declaration of Independence? Bill of Rights? Didn’t think so.
Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England? No.
Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America? No, they did not. In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.” …
Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazis in killing Jews.
Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East. No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day …
Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims.
And now we can add November 5, 2009 – the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major, a doctor and a psychiatrist, who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.
That, Mr. Obama is the “Muslim heritage” in America!
P.S. Now, you can add the Boston Marathon bombings, too…
“I just thought it was an interesting article,” he said of his decision to post it, adding that none of his students engaged with the post at all.
“It’s not like it went viral,” he explained. “It’s not like everyone and their brother saw it.”
Nevertheless, he was told he would lose his position – one for which he earns about $7 per hour and holds simply because he enjoys coaching kids – and ultimately negotiated a resignation so that a dismissal would not follow him to his next job.
By all accounts, Lees was an effective and well-liked coach who took his team from heavy losses to playoff berths. The 23-year veteran coach said this incident marks his first termination from any job.

Hamas in Gaza video. Their weapons come from Iran:
President Obama and communist Frank Marshall Davis relationship has been proven by Obama on a video clip.
Davis was a completely vile man, including sexually. He was a pedophile as well as involved in other grotesque immorality. He was monitored by the FBI for His marxist designs.

This video of Obama exposes another lie of our president who has denied a friendship with marxist Frank Marshal Davis.
Muslims have been responsible for the murder of more than 3,000 Americans on American soil in more than 75 terrorist attacks over the last 40 years. And Jews are the most targeted victims of hate crimes in America.
Koran 9:5, known as the “Verse of the Sword,” Muhammad commands Muslims to proactively fight everyone who rejects Islam, to “slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive)…” The Yusufali translation clarifies, “fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war).”

The Muslims who attempted to shoot many innocent people recently in Texas, attended an Islamic center controlled by the “North American IslamicTrust,” a Muslim Brotherhood front. This front group operates the majority of mosques in America.
IRS Tax Cheaters:
The Washington Times reports that the majority of identified and proven tax cheaters in the employ of the IRS are still on the job, as the agency hasn’t fired them; and in fact, says the IG, many have been rewarded — promoted even after being nailed for not paying up.
In about 60 percent of cases of ‘willful violations,’ IRS managers found mitigating circumstances and refused to fire the employees, even though the law calls for that penalty. In some of those cases, the managers didn’t even document why they had overridden the penalty, said Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George.
And how many of these “willful violations” of tax law by its own employees did the agency refuse to act on? The Times article says that, over a decade-long span, there were 1,580 instances where IRS workers were determined to have intentionally cheated on their taxes.
President Obama putting gun dealers out of business using banks:
Rick Warren continually makes himself out to be a continuous fool as he rewrites the Bible, transforming it into the liberal and apostate Warren Bible. Warren is infamous for aligning himself with the most wicked of the wicked. Now homosexual, cross dresser, Elton John, has entered the scene, whom Warren was holding hands with … both wore clown smiles on their faces. Warren spoke of kissing him, and that was as far it went, as far as we know.
Elton John completely blasphemes Jesus Christ by stating he was a “supper intelligent, gay man.”
Warren will cozy up to anyone of any deformed lifestyle who agrees with his P.E.A.C.E. Plan—”P – promote reconciliation, E – equip servant leaders, A – assist the poor, C – care for the sick, and E – educate the next generation.”
Christianity is about separation and a holy walk of innocence and purity. It is all about wise and sober behavior. It is about not touching anything unclean and hating even the garments polluted by the flesh when reaching the lost.
I wouldn’t want to be in Warren’s shoes for anything in the world on the day when he takes his stand before Almighty God who encompasses holy righteousness.
Parental Rights news:
“This year Idaho passed a new statute defending the fundamental right of parents to make decisions for their children. North Carolina is well on its way to following suit. Eight other states already offer similar protections in state law.
Sadly, similar legislation went down to defeat in Missouri last week, a victim of the partisan politics that cripples so much of our system.
HB 557 had passed the House with a veto-proof majority and had the support to see the same level of success in the Missouri Senate. Unfortunately, a Republican victory on a completely unrelated issue led the Democrats to filibuster and vow to block every other bill – including the bill to protect parental rights.”
FCC Commissioner, Ajit Pai, has let the cat out of bag so to speak:
“The government taking control of the infrastructure of internet with ‘net neutrality’ will eventually lead to attempts to take control of content.”
Democrats want to remove sites that are Republican-friendly, which assist in removing the Democrat power-hold.
A new survey reveals: “MAJORITY OF DEMOCRATS SUPPORT CRIMINALIZING FREE SPEECH;” the speech that is not in line with their agendas such as pro-life, pro-purity, anti-Sharia Law, anti-homosexuality, etc.
Time will tell what the future holds in regard to free speech in general.
Hillary Clinton and Saudi Arabia
Conservative News: Hillary Clinton’s Department of State gave favorable defense contracts to countries and companies who contributed heavily to the Clinton Foundation, a new report finds.
International Business Times reported that several defense contractors, led by Boeing, gave $29 billion worth of fighter jets to Saudi Arabia in late 2011. Although this infuriated the Israelis, the State Department asserted the move was in the national interest.
In the years before the deal was made, the Saudis gave approximately $10 million to the Clinton Foundation, while Boeing gave the organization $900,000 two months before the deal, a company press release said.
American Terrorist Infiltration:
Conservative News: Dozens of young Muslims have left the streets of Cedar Riverside, referred to by some Minnesotans as “Little Mogadishu” for its high concentration of Somali refugees, to travel abroad and fight for terrorist groups. Some have joined Somalia’s notorious al-Shabab, which slaughtered 147 Christians at a university in Kenya last month, while others have opted for ISIS in Syria. Their goal is the same – to join their brothers in the fight to establish a Shariah-compliant utopia known as a caliphate.
Love in Christ Jesus who will one day bring peace upon this cursed earth, Val
Now, I beseech you, brethren mark them that cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which you have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such, serve not our LORD Jesus Christ, but their own belly. (Romans 16:17-18 in the Bible)
“Son of God” is a grandiose, high-profile production!
Many desire to know if it is true to the Bible as it claims, and rightly so.
For you to be discernibly tutored, many aspects must be investigated, including the character and motivation of its producers.
God declares in His Word that those who are involved in presenting the Word of God must be above reproach in every way and 100% faithful to Biblical truth. This includes owning a working knowledge of Bible texts.
Teachers must be separated from the ungodliness of this world—its questionable ways, philosophies, unholy activities, etc.
Various texts in the Bible are set before us to test if one is qualified to represent it.
Two key people we need to test for godliness are the producers, Roma Downey and her husband, Mark Burnett. Roma also plays Mary in this portrayal of the life of Christ.
To be forthright, Roma is a Catholic/new ager.
Roma and Mark are all about Hollywood, and are one with the stars of Hollywood, and boldly state so. Their entire lives are wrapped around this false glittering world of sin.
The couple stand with homosexuality and premarital sex. They lived together prior to marriage from all appearances. Hollywood tells their story, including the fact, they were married at “their” home. Also they were vacationing in Mexico when they became engaged.
Regarding their marriage, they were married by new ager Della Reese, who is one of Roma’s main spiritual advisers. Reese, in one of her new ager roles, appears in commercials for psychic community hotlines.
She brims with all sorts of strange doctrines and prosperity beliefs, including the “New Thought Movement” that basically lets you get whatever you desire through thought requests.
She never seems to acknowledge Jesus Christ in any sincere and true way. Mostly, she addresses god or father who is not the Biblical God.
Reese does not believe in followers going through trials and problems, because existence is to only consist of a prosperous, good life. She never deals with sin or the word “sin” from what I have researched. It is about God being in everyone, just as Roma believes.
Reese’s new age thinking emerges with voices focusing on all that we have regarding inside powers, which all good things emerge from.
Of course, being a Hollywood musical and acting legend, Reese’s life was all about dressing sexy when she was young to sell herself. Being one with the big ranks was her life—and still is. God commands Christians to come out and be separate, Reese represents the exact opposite.
This is Roma’s third marriage, and Mark’s second. God says adulterers and fornicators He will judge, but the marriage bed is undefiled. This entails a lifelong commitment to the marriage covenant; understanding a husband and wife are bound to each other as long as they live. (1 Corinthians 7:39) Of course, forgiveness of all sins can be found in Jesus Christ.
God also proclaims, the sexually immoral will be cast into the lake of fire. And God Almighty, who is all holiness, never lies. This is why men must recognize their sin and desire forgiveness through Christ’s shed blood to enter heaven. God can forgive all sin. Jesus Christ died for all of us wayward people. However, one must come to the Biblical Christ to be saved. He loves the weary and heavy laden and desires to grant them rest. (John 3:16-18 and Matthew 11:28 in the Bible)
Roma and Mark have no true Christian testimony of being washed from their sins by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. They appear to have very little problem with evil and any bad thing can be overcome with will power and the god within everyone.
Roma explains she has known Mary and Jesus all her life. Of course, this is the Catholic, idol Mary and false christ; the idolatrous deities of Catholic demonic, mysticism.
The true Jesus Christ is undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens, and someday everyone will stand before His throne of judgment, acknowledging all judgment has been handed to the Son from the Father. (John 5:22 and Hebrews 7:26)
Roma attempts to sound Christian to recruit people into new age Catholicism. You can see she lists herself as Catholic in Wikipedia if you research her name.
She and her husband, unfortunately, run in the most conservative Christian circles when they desire. This allows them to have the backing of the most influential and famed Christians in America or so-called Christians. They do this to maintain conservative patrons, thus procuring momentous, mega bucks from believers and church attendees who do not know their Bibles, or do not care what Scripture exhorts.
Since Roma and Mark relish the Hollywood square, it is no wonder they adore President Obama. Obama stands for every vile way and has done all he can to remove rights of Christians, while ushering in complete perversion. He also ruthlessly applauds murdering babies before their birth, and soon after they are born, if unwanted. He lies to Americans with no conviction of wrongdoing, and his list of fraudulent plots marches on within his powerful reign. (I must add, Christians are exhorted by Scripture to pray for government leaders—1 Timothy chapter 2. Above all, I believe, we need to intercede for their salvation and to perform God’s will not their own.)
The previously celebrated, religious movie was the “Passion of the Christ;” and it too was crafted to recruit people into the devilish religion of Catholicism. Its director, Mel Gibson, being a Catholic, plotted to have Mary strangely glorified.
Roma is following in Gibson’s footsteps, recruiting people into worshipping “mother Mary.” And she uses this term as her role in the movie to plant idolatrous seeds. “Mother Mary” is how idolatrous Catholics pray liturgy to a being they believe is a perpetual (unending) virgin, and is mother god.
The actual Biblical Mary had other children, after Jesus, as the Bible explains. She was only kept a virgin till the birth of Christ, upon which, she and Joseph engaged in natural marriage. Two of their five sons (Matthew 13:55), James and Jude wrote two books in the New Testament. Humbly, they did not set themselves above other believers, and rightly so.
Mark 3:31-35 clarifies the Biblical Mary in this regard: And His mother and His brothers came, and standing outside, they sent to Jesus and called him. And a crowd was sitting around Him, and they said to Him, “Your mother and your brothers are outside, seeking you.” And He answered them, “Who are my mother and my brothers?” And looking about at those who sat around Him, He said, “Here is my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother.”
Roma talks about feeling herself levitate in her new age sphere and Mark is in full-hearted agreement with this demonic activity. This exposes the fact, demons have ahold of her being, and no doubt, influence Mark.
Roma has appeared on television with psychic, Jonathan Edward, where she has reportedly talked to her deceased mother. (Though this would not be her mother but a demon, knowing a person’s soul does not remain on the earth, whether hell or heaven-bound.) Such a practice is called necromancy, which is a witchcraft practice, and forbidden in the Bible. This is demonic communication. Anyone who engaged in demonic communications in the Old Testament was to be executed in punishment by God’s judgment.
Roma also believes in female angels and appears to believe in children angels as well. She has penned a children’s story line on children who are little angels.
There are only mature male angels in Scripture and the Bible does not lie. Angels were formed countless years before a female ever appeared on the earth, or a child.
Roma can appear most strange in her words, using common Christian clichés when needed to sound evangelical. She never comes across as totally sincere from what I have noticed in web video clips.
What is also unnerving, is this lady can dress like a whore and talk about Christianity, as if this all is normal.
Let us now consider another key component to this film, Diogo Morgado, who plays a handsome, charismatic christ; all to the pleasure of the sensual flesh, which relishes gazing upon the captivating.
God’s Word warns, the heart of a person is what is important, not the outward appearance.
Hollywood refers to Diogo Morgado as a “hot Jesus,” and Morgado delights in this title. This is all blasphemous beyond belief, in the most improprietous sense. However, this is how the producers designed it to be, to usher in countless greenbacks.
Sensuality is forbidden in the Bible and is addressed as an evil fruit of the flesh. Men and women are to look at one another in all purity. Men are to look at women as sisters in all purity. And women are responsible to dress in shamefacedness—in bashfulness towards men and in the fear of God.
This popular, posted comment is also reprehensible knowing Jesus Christ held no fleshly appearance that would draw men to His outward self. (Isaiah 53:2) And the true Christ certainly did not come across hippie-like, as the antichrist in this movie.
What is most perverse is Diogo Morgado is living in a state of fornication, living with a gal out-of-wedlock. He does pornography shots; yet, attempts to sound religious. Is it any wonder that Roma and Mark adore this man?
Imprudence does not stop here regarding this antichrist Jesus. Roma and Mark have fine tuned him the best they can to sell him as a Christian. However, he lets it be known, his coming movies are completely different in story line.
“Son of God” is an epic production in the eyes of Catholic and Christian; and is causing many people to get rich. Side items are also being sold to increase the pocketbooks of 20th Century Fox, Roma and Mark, and others.
Let us probe Fox within a paragraph. This mega corporation recently fired a newscaster for being pro natural family and not pro homosexuality. Fox is not known to promote modesty, prudishness and chastity. Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox, is a Catholic who appears to own few morals.
Let us consider outside movie promoters which include Rick Warren, Focus on the Family, Max Lucado, Joel Osteen, Pat Robertson, Della Reese. Oh, and I cannot forget Oprah, a good friend of Roma’s, who supports every evil thing and is known to be a lesbian.
The list of strategists for this monstrosity of a movie, appears to be endless; all are positioned to catch and deceive.
One movie promotion link:
(You must scroll to the bottom to view all these promoters.)
Naturally, none of the flick’s endorsers address the lies, false doctrines, mysticism, motivation, etc, that hides behind this silver screen gilding. Of course not! Their doctrines are full of lies as well. Their religion is ecumenical, the religion of today’s apostate church. And who knows how much of a kickback they might receive under the table and for showing their face.
The so-called Christian theologians certainly shame themselves in their Bible illiteracy, not even able to address the obvious, blaring lies.
God commands every Christian leader to know the Scriptures thoroughly.
During the Revelation apocalypse, the planet will be encased in a one world religion. This is what famed religious leaders are promoting today. The Bible states the apostasy (abandonment of the true Biblical faith) must arrive first, and this apostasy continues until Christ returns to rule the earth from Jerusalem.
Besides the above link with advocators, you have a website that orchestrates more Catholics weighing in under the direction of the movie’s creators.
One such person, an agent of satan, is Cardinal Wuel. He is sat before the public to promote Catholicism and to reveal the Catholic content of “Son of God:”
Catholics believe Peter was their first pope so this movie leaves out Andrew, Peter’s brother, at the calling of being a disciple. Both were called at the same time to leave their nets and follow Christ; Matthew 4:18f. Progressing in this passage, you read of James and John, being summoned to follow as well.
The movie also misrepresents truth when the anti-jesus states, they “will change the world.” The Bible never speaks this, nor does it voice, that Christ said to Peter, “Just give me an hour of your time and I will give you a whole new life.”
You also have the movie scene of the nets being hauled in by Peter that are full of fish by a miracle of Christ; yet, the net never breaks as the Bible records. Plus, the movie only shows Peter with Jesus in the boat when this miracle occurs. However, it was Peter’s commercial fishing boat and others were working too. Peter tells Christ to depart from him (he being a sinful man), when he comes face to face with the holy One. This is not exposed in the depiction.
James and John, who were partners with Peter, were also present at the fish netting miracle. At this time, the LORD Jesus Christ tells Peter, that he will be a fisher of men.
The Catholic cardinal states, this is all taken from the Bible; well, a great deal is not. Catholics have no problem lying to recruit, as I have learned personally.
Also, this movie’s fishing segment is demonically mystical regarding the false Jesus preparing the fish catch, though not shown in this particular clip review, but is in the trailer.
It is unbelievable that Christians would accept as truth what is made to be strange magic, that of an unfamiliar spirit!
Also on this webpage, you have Joel Osteen, who reviews the storm scene, which includes Mary being in the boat, an outrageous lie of satan who always wants to rewrite the Word of God. This scene too has a miracle performed in a blasphemous, mystical way. (The true account is located in Mark chapter 4.)
Does Osteen correct this mysticism and false doctrine? Of course, not. He is all about lies that include a contrived prosperity Gospel, which arises from the pit of hell. It is no surprise that this ecumenical man and his wife are friends of Roma and Mark.
Regarding the production’s content, it has been rightly declared, this movie is to please all, including feminists through Mary’s forthright and bold ways. Of course, the Mary of the Bible held a quiet, gentle, and submissive spirit, holding no acclaimed aspirations within women’s lib.
She did not appear most everywhere with Christ and the disciples, as the movie places her. She was not the thirteenth disciple!
On the same webpage of the fisherman review, you have a video link to a Catholic archbishop who weighs in too. Of course, Catholics desire to appear Christian in adherence with many of the cults we have today. It is all about deceiving and sending the Biblically uneducated to hell; all part and parcel with satan’s rulebook.
Catholics certainly view this movie as a good work toward salvation. They do not believe in salvation through grace, receiving the Christ of the Bible as one’s personal Savior. They think they are good enough to make it on their own efforts, no matter their inward filthiness.
It is far far better to read a Bible of a good translation, and obtain truth from God directly, and not from Catholic mystics.
Looking at the Bible, there is no other book whereby the author will come and be with you as you read, and in the most discerning, Holy Spirit filled way.
Everyone has sinned and falls short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23), and can only receive eternal life in heaven by calling on Jesus Christ of the Holy Bible, not by watching a movie about God or anything, anyone would consider a religious act. Every human being requires a holy Savior, the One who hates all sin that leads to death. (Romans 6:23)
More to consider within the film frame:
The Scriptures never state Jesus smiled nor laughed, because it is not important, though this movie seems to make it terribly important. We do know Jesus wept and this is significant, because it is recorded in the Word of God. He grieved over the sinfulness of men and their rejection of Him—the only One who can save from sin.
The only place we see God laugh in Scripture is when He laughs in judgement over those who reject Him in the tribulation or last days, before they are cast into the lake of fire for their hatred of the Savior. God will break them with a rod of iron and dash them into pieces. (Psalm chapter 2)
This flower-child like, movie star antichrist displays many arrogant, pompous looks as does the majority of Hollywood entertainers. Christ never displayed an arrogant look. God hates a proud look! (Proverbs 6:16-17)
Arrogance is forbidden in the Scriptures and Christ walked in all lowliness of person, though with righteous, commanding power. All the fullness of the Godhead dwells in Christ in bodily form, and He is the head over all principalities and power. (Colossians 2:9-10)
Also consider, Christ never posed before an artist. No art pieces of him were to be made and preserved. No one knows the appearance of Christ from this period! All works of art are a lie regarding how Christ or anyone else appeared.
It is oddly strange, that such artworks are endless. Religious artisans even believe their lying likenesses are true to form no matter how many types of Jesus and Mary renderings are produced. Absolutely ridiculous! Much currency is manufactured and the artisans naturally enjoy this fact.
This is akin to what we read in Acts chapter 19, regarding merchants making money from idol artworks. The merchants hated Paul because he exposed that statues were not gods at all and were not to be worshipped!
The sellers felt the effects of now losing money and they ruthlessly attacked Paul.
(Many true believers in Christ have been murdered by Catholics and other idolatrous followers over the centuries for this same disclosure.)
Of course, idols of all religions pull in the dough, and just think of all the crosses that gross money.
Today, discerning Christians are being ridiculed from all corners for not standing with this movie of money, and its idol Jesus.
Regarding how Christ appears now, we do know He has white hair, as white as snow. His eyes are a flame of fire, and His feet are like bronze, as if burned in a furnace. He has a long robe with a gold sash. And a two-edged sword extends from His mouth to reveal He is a God of judgment. (Revelation chapter 1)
Additionally, the Bible tells us we no longer know Christ after the flesh. (2 Corinthians 5:16)
Other lies are presented with the raising of Lazarus of Bethany. (John chapter 11) Jesus knew all the time Lazarus had died and was not surprised as the movie attempts to portray. Jesus Christ is omniscient (all-knowing) and all omnipotent (all-powerful), and therefore, could and did raise Lazarus when he called upon His heavenly Father.
Jesus did not go into the tomb as the movie depicts, nor does it say Jesus gave him a strange kiss in the tomb (very questionable in presentation).
In truth, Christ called out to Lazarus to “come forth” and Lazarus did, still bound in grave-clothes.
Martha and Jesus did not enter the tomb together and then all three emerge to the happy cries of an awaiting crowd of spectators.
Due to this resurrection miracle, the religious leaders sought even more to put Christ to death and also desired that Lazarus be put to death as well (John 12:10). These were murdering, cunning Jews who could never be placed in a good light! From what I understand, the movie tries to tie some goodness to the Sadducee and Pharisee religious sects. How unbelievable!
Another item of interest, which viewers have observed, is the fact Judas is made to be a victim by Christ to betray Him. This is blasphemy to the hilt!
Judas the betrayer, is a son of perdition or a son of hell (John 17:2), rightly designated by God Almighty! He was satan’s child and satan’s children attempt to justify Judas.
Judas was a wolf of a man; one who stole from the money-box for his own prosperity … a man of greed. He was an actor who portrayed a righteous man in order to deceive and take all he could from the Savior and His ministry.
Also the kiss that Judas gives Jesus in the film is homosexual-like. A kiss of Hollywood vileness that makes your heart-sick.
The Bible teaches, all the deep-rooted sins within Judas drove him to betray Christ in a murder driven way.
Psalm 109, verses 6 and following, in the Old Testament, is a prophecy Psalm of exposure, referencing this despicable man, who became cursed of God and his family.
Judgment says, “Let his days be few and let another take his office.” “Let his children be fatherless,” beggars, and their seed cut off, and “his wife made a widow.”
Acts chapter 1 also exposes the character of Judas, which declares he was a guide to those who removed the Savior; and he rightly died, seeing his bowls gushed out.
Another dubious lie to those who know the Scriptures, is the crying out of Mary, “Let Him be,” when Jesus is arrested and beaten.
The false Catholic “mother Mary” is always guarding Jesus, and is inseparable.
Catholicism, New Age, Hinduism, Buddhism, all provide glimpses into Mystery Babylon that will appear in the tribulation, in all its idolatrous vileness. Idol worship will prevail everywhere as I have addressed in my book, Revelation the Explanation: Revelation the Explanation Book (Part 1)
True believers know they can obtain holy, superior truth by sitting down and reading the Bible for two hours, as opposed to driving to a theatre to glue the eyes to a silver screen, upon which the Word of God is added to, subtracted from and blasphemed.
Hollywood is a harlot and a producer of lies, rarely substantiated truth.
Christians are called to dwell only on truth, not that which is manufactured in the mind.
Unfortunately, despite all the movie’s flaws, Christians still say, “It will draw people to Christ.” I say God does not need this blasphemous movie to draw men to Himself. He can cause the stones to cry out a correct Gospel that adds no extra words or actions, nor subtracts them. Nor does He require mysticism to save men.
Having all virtuous Christians in America going door to door with the true Gospel of salvation would accomplish great things. Christians must continue to pray for more to enter God’s harvest. This includes supplications to God, to raise up godly men to street preach in populated locations to those who have never heard of the saving love of Christ. Most people need to hear the unadulterated Gospel. We must stay on the right tract and not deviate to the world’s entertaining deceptions.
Love in our Savior, who desires Christians be led into all truth—Colossians 1:9-14,

Here are some testimonies from teens to consider. The web link is below.
“‘Christian rock’ music has probably been the biggest hindrance to my spiritual growth. When I first heard this kind of music, it really bothered my spirit. But then this music was brought into my church. The more I heard it, the less it bothered me. The less it bothered me, the more I listened to it.
“It wasn’t long before I was involved in secular rock music because I didn’t see any difference. This music caused me to resist the Lord and hold parts of my life back from Him. I was not able to have a freedom to truly serve Him and be totally dedicated to Him until I was willing to give up this music.”
A Sixteen-Year-Old Student From Florida
“I listened to rock music for about four years and it was not ‘Christian rock’ because I always thought it was so hypocritical to listen to Christian rock. At least I was honest about it and I did not pretend to be somebody I wasn’t.
“So, after the first couple of times I was already addicted to it. The reason I started is because everybody always thought I was, ‘goody-goody.’ They would say, ‘Hey, did you hear that song?’ or ‘Have you ever heard this group?’ I would say, ‘No, I don’t listen to rock.’ “I began by listening to ‘soft rock’ and progressed to heavy metal. It really had a strong effect on my life. Now my church plays ‘Christian rock’ and I see it ruining many kids in our youth group. It is so sad. It has ruined kids that were so sweet.”
A Sixteen-Year-Old Student From Texas
“I was following the Lord wholeheartedly until we switched churches and I was invited to the new youth group. I had a conviction against rock music, but as I was surrounded by it, my beliefs were corrupted. This music eventually led to rebellion and moral failures. The Lord has gained victory in my life now, but the music still brings on rebellion if I listen to it. Please get rid of this music and play melodious, harmonious music!”
A Fifteen-Year-Old Student From Pennsylvania
“‘Christian rock’ had made me a shallow, rebellious young Christian. It made it easy for me to get into regular rock music. When I finally submitted to God and got the rock music out of my life, I was able to see the double standard that is lived out by ‘Christian rock’ musicians.
” ‘Christian rock’ does not praise God and it is worse than regular rock because I think it is hypocritical. Rock is wrong and addictive and has contributed to my moral failure. I praise God for His help in releasing me from it.”
An Eighteen-Year-Old Student From Indiana
“About four years ago, a local Christian radio station began broadcasting ‘rock’ of the ‘Christian variety.’ At first, I accepted only the light stuff. Within months, I found myself listening to heavier and heavier stuff. I thank God that my parents and I came to an agreement on the music I will listen to. I can see how it has affected the lives of some who at one time were my closest friends. I still enjoy easy classical music, but they are into heavy worldly rock and the lifestyle that goes with it. Just a few weeks ago, God convicted me of what I once considered super-soft, contemporary music. I threw the tape away and thank God for the conviction that brought me to do it.”
A Twenty-Year-Old Student From Kansas
“I began to listen to ‘Christian rock’ without the blessing of my father. He told me that if I listened to ‘Christian rock’ it would open the door for Satan. I just laughed, and listened anyway. It totally deadened my Christian growth and led to terrible immorality, rebellion, and rejection of God. It then developed into secular, hard rock. Now all I can do is go back and pick up the pieces. But I still have a scar in my life that will never be removed.”
A Sixteen-Year-Old Student From Oklahoma
There are many more such testimonies: http://www.av1611.org/crock/crockids.html
“But whoever shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Matthew 18:6)
Condensed and edited:
Christian Rockers and Secular Rockers United
The following examples could be multiplied endlessly:
AUDIO ADRENALINE’S Bloom album includes the song “Free Ride” from the Edgar Winter Group’s They Only Come out at Night album. Rock star Edgar Winter was featured on the cover of this wicked album dressed as a homosexual “drag queen.” The lyrics to “Free Ride” claim that “all of the answers come from within.” This is rank heresy, because we know that the answers do not come from within man’s fallen heart, but from God’s revelation in the Bible.
FOURTH WATCH cites groups like U2, the Police, Genesis, Pete Townshend, and the Alarm as major influences. “MEMBERS LISTEN TO A GREAT DEAL OF MAINSTREAM MUSIC, MAKING NO APOLOGIES FOR IT, and they express a desire to play clubs and other non-church settings” (CCM Magazine, April 1987, p. 19).
RANDY STONEHILL “listens to all kinds of music,” including hard secular rock (Devlin Donaldson, “Rockin’ Randy,” CCM Magazine, August 1983).
PHIL KEAGGY performs an unholy combination of secular rock and Christian rock/folk, and those who listen to his music are drawn toward worldly rock & roll. On his 1993 Crimson and Blue album, for example, he pays “homage to the Beatles” by covering several of their songs.
When ASHLEY CLEVELAND was asked what music was on her stereo, she replied, “Living With Ghosts, Patty Griffin; What’s The Story Morning Glory, Oasis; Exile On Main Street, the Rolling Stones” (http://www.ashleycleveland.com/acfacts.htm). In her concerts, Ashley performs a very gritty rendition of the Rolling Stones hit “Gimme Shelter.”
CAEDMON’S CALL said their greatest love in music is secular rock. They mentioned Indigo Girls, Shawn Colvin, David Wilcox, The Police, Fishbone, 10,000 Maniacs (Lighthouse Electronic Magazine). The group often performs Beatles music. Cliff Young said one of his favorites is the foul-mouthed Alanis Morrisette. He mocked a preacher who warns that Christian musicians should not listen to secular rock and said that he listens to secular rock & rollers because “they are being honest [about] struggles that they go through.”
STEVE CAMP says, “I’ll have a Foreigner 4 album going in my car.” He also says: “I am dedicated to good music whether it’s pop, Christian, gospel, R&B, blues, jazz,
classical, rock or whatever. I just love good music” (Steve Camp, MusicLine magazine, Feb. 1986, p. 22).
JARS OF CLAY names Jimi Hendrix and the Beatles as their inspiration (Dann Denny, “Christian Rock,” Sunday Herald Times, Bloomington, Ind., Feb. 8, 1998). The lead guitarist for Jars of Clay is said to be a “Beatles fanatic” (Christian News, Dec. 8, 1997). When asked by Christianity Today to list their musical influences, Jars of Clay members “listed no Christian artists” (Christianity Today, Nov. 15, 1999). Jars of Clay performs Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” during their concerts. Osbourne is the filthy-mouthed former lead singer for the occultic rock group Black Sabbath.
Dana Key (of DEGARMO & KEY) says that he has been influenced most by B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix, and Billy Gibbons (of ZZ Top) (CCM Magazine, January 1989, p. 30).
POINT OF GRACE, on their Life, Love and Other Mysteries album, recorded “Sing a Song” by the occultic, antichrist rock group Earth, Wind and Fire.
The worldliness of DELIRIOUS is evident in their choice of “musical heroes,” which include “Radiohead, Blur and other big British modern rockers” (CCM magazine, July 1999, p. 39).
The group DELIVERANCE performs songs by secular rock groups. Their What a Joke album has the song “After Forever” by the vile, blasphemous, pagan rock group Black Sabbath.
When asked what is currently in her CD player, CRYSTAL LEWIS replied: “Michael Jackson, Thriller; Billy Holliday; Led Zeppelin; Radiohead, Ok Computer; Radiohead, Kid A; and Sting, Nothing Like the Sun (“Ten Questions with Chrystal Lewis,” CCM Magazine, March 2002).
The popular group THIRD DAY also loves secular rock. Michael Herman of Christianity Today asked the members of Third Day to “name a musician you’d pay to see in concert.” All five members of the band named secular rockers. Tai named U2; Brad, the Cars; David, Phil Collins; Mac, Tom Petty; and Mark, George Harrison (“Guy Talk” interview posted at Christianity Today web site, Feb. 26, 2002). Anyone familiar with the music and atmosphere at secular rock concerts should know that a Bible believer has no business there. “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Eph. 5:11).
In the video for the Rock & Worship Roadshow Tour (2011), MERCYME covers the Beatles song “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.”
Why is it that contemporary Christian musicians can be so comfortable with secular rock? I believe it is because so many CCM artists worship a false god.
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”
Rock music is clearly characterized by “the lusts of the flesh, the lusts of the eyes, and the pride of life.” A better definition has never been written.
James warned that it is spiritual adultery to love the world and God, too.
“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” (James 4:4).
One reason why contemporary Christian music lovers do not separate from rock & roll is that they worship the same god as secular rockers.
It is the god that is experienced through sensual passions.
As we have seen, rock & rollers can be religiously passionate about their music and they often speak of it in terms of a spiritual experience.
The Doors wanted their audience “to undergo a religious experience.”
Bob Marley’s concerns were “like church … a spiritual high.”
Grateful Dead concerts are “a place to worship” and “bear uncanny resemblance to religious festivals.”
Muddy Waters said that “blues was his religion.”
Judas Priest said that rock music isn’t just music; it’s “a philosophy and a way of life.”
Michael Jackson said, “When I am dancing, I have felt touched by something sacred.”
George Harrison said, “Music is very involved with the spiritual.”
Brian Eno described his discovery of rock & roll as “a spiritual experience.”
Obviously, these rockers are not talking about having communion with the God of the Bible. They worship a different god. He is non-judgmental, sensual, even sexual, and puts no obligations on people, letting them “follow their hearts.”
This is exactly the god worshiped by many CCM artists.
The false CCM non-judgmental, universalistic god is represented by emerging church leaders such as Brian McLaren and Rob Bell, both of whom are very popular with CCM artists. One Christian rocker told us that these writings “resonate” with him.
The “old-fashioned” Bible believer says with the writer of Hebrews, “Our God is a consuming fire” (Hebrews 12:29). The emerging church says, “Our God is not a consuming fire.”
Rocking Rob Bell believes God is more akin to New Age panentheism than the God of the Bible. He describes God as “a force, an energy, a being calling out to us in many languages, using a variety of methods and events” (Love Wins, location 1710-1724).
“There is an energy in the world, a spark, an electricity that everything is plugged into. The Greeks called it zoe, the mystics call it ‘Spirit,’ and Obi-Wan called it ‘the Force’” (Love Wins, location 1749-1762).
Many of the CCM artists worship A REBEL CHRIST, which is certainly a false christ. Mark Stuart of Audio Adrenaline says, “Jesus Christ is the biggest rebel to ever walk the face of the earth” (Pensacola News Journal, Pensacola, Fla., March 1, 1998, pp. 1, 6E). Sonny of P.O.D. says, “We believe that Jesus was the first rebel; the first punk rocker” (http://www.shoutweb.com/interviews/pod0700.phtml). This is absolute blasphemy. The Bible says rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft (1 Sam. 15:23). A rebel is a lawbreaker, but Christ was the lawgiver who He came to earth to fulfill the requirements of His own law (Mat. 5:17-19). Christ was not crucified for rebellion; He was crucified for testifying that He is God (John 10:33).
Many of the CCM artists worship A ROCK & ROLL PARTY CHRIST. In his Live … Radically Saved video Carman says, “Jesus is always cool; He’s got his thing together.” In Resurrection Rap Carman portrays Jesus as a street hippie; in The Standard he calls Jesus “J.C.”; and in Addicted to Jesus he speaks of “Jammin’ with the Lamb.” Petra claims that “God gave rock and roll to you/ Put it in the soul of every one.” In “Party in Heaven” the Daniel Band sang, “The Lamb and I are drinkin’ new wine.” Phil Driscoll says, “God is the King of Soul; He’s the King of all rhythm” (quoted by Tim Fisher, Battle for Christian Music, p. 82). Messiah Prophet Band says, “Jesus is the Master of Metal,” and Barren Cross says, “Better than pot, Jesus rocks.” John Fischer described God as puffing on a cigar and swaying to rock music (CCM Magazine, July 1984, p. 20), while J. Lee Grady says Jesus enjoys dancing with the angels and “grooving to the sound of Christian R&B pumped out of a boom box” (Charisma, July 2000).
The fact that the CCM crowd typically worships a different kind of god than the “old-fashioned” Biblicist, is why they are perfectly comfortable using music that has been identified as “sexy” by the secular world.
“… that is what rock is all about–sex with a 100-megaton bomb, the beat” (Gene Simmons of KISS, Entertainment Tonight, ABC, Dec. 10, 1987).
Note that Simmons was not referring to the words of rock music; he was referring to the music itself and particularly to its backbeat rhythm.
Music researchers Daniel and Bernadette Skubik, in their study on the neurophysiology of rock music, warned:
“Whether the words are evil, innocuous, or based in Holy Scripture, the overall neurophysiological effects generated by rock music remain the same. There is simply no such thing as Christian rock that is substantively different in its impact” (“The Neurophysiology of Rock,” an Appendix to Ken Blanchard’s Pop Goes the Gospel, pp. 187ff).
The reason this statement doesn’t bother a CCM defender is because he sees Jesus as a non-judgmental rock & roll party Dude who loves a good time.
“Those who envision God as a special friend, a kind of lover, with whom they can have fun, see no problem in worshipping him by means of physically stimulating music. On the other hand, those who perceive God as a majestic, holy, and almighty Being to be approached with awe and reverence will only use the music that elevates them spiritually” (Samuele Bacchiocchi, The Christian and Rock Music).

This all reveals the satanic church in all its glory. I mean Bible churches of today who call themselves Christian; yet, approve of so-called Christian contemporary groups and singers that adore satan worshipping rockers that hate the holy and undefiled LORD Jesus Christ; Hebrews 7:26.
History of Rock and Roll
The phrase “Rock and Roll” was first used back in 1951 by Cleveland music disc jockey Allan Freed to as a description relating to the sound of teenagers committing fornication (premarital sex), such as in the back seat of a car while listening to such rock music. “Rock and Roll Music” is therefore by definition a synonym for “Fornication Music”, since that is where the term arose. “Christian Rock Music”, (also known as “Contemporary Christian Music”), therefore literally means “Christian Fornication Music.”
The Bible says, “But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;” (Ephesians 5:3). All Christians are to “Flee fornication.” (1 Corinthians 6:18a)
Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) is mostly wicked in intent. It is formatted to get the young and old acclimated to the world’s sexy beat. CCM mainly consists of the “Rock And Roll” beat. Contemporary means worldly or of today’s society. The only reason you have Christian rock music is because satan has rock music. If satan and his followers had not invented sexy rock music, there would be no Christian rock.
Condensed Information from Way of Life:
PELVIC THRUSTS AT SADDLEBACK WORSHIP CONCERT:
The following statement from the Extreme Theology website for December 9, 2006, describes a video on YouTube of a Saddleback “Worship” Concert that featured vulgar “pelvic thrust” rock moves.
“This is a video of a Saddleback Worship Concert. There are teenage girls doing dance moves that include Pelvic Thrusts. Is this really worship to the one true God of the Bible or is this worship to one of those pagan sex gods? You be the judge?.
“Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire’ (Matthew 7:17-19).”
Unfortunately, there are several posted immodest and vile videos of Saddleback dances, including swing dance footage. No man should be allowed to view them!
Most so-called Christians thrive on secular and Christian rock and no one had better say a word against it either, or they are ridiculed in the church. They can also be formally church disciplined for judging this beat of fornication.
This all reveals the satanic church in all its glory. I mean Bible churches of today who call themselves Christian; yet, approve of so-called Christian contemporary groups and singers that adore satan worshipping rockers that hate the holy and undefiled LORD Jesus Christ; Hebrews 7:26.
How can anyone be a Christian and love satan’s world of vile indecency and Biblical blasphemy presented in song and the rock beat? Rockers present a false jesus who loves satan and his every unchaste way. This is one reason many women in churches today have no problem showing cleavage and upper leg. They dress to please satan, their sensual god who loves to rock out in all sexiness.
Sex, drugs, rebellion, and demonism are all symbolic of fornication music. This is why churches are tolerant of most anything today, except those who desire to be separated from the world—culture and society.

Emerging/emergent spirituality is making frightening strides in Christianity today. Whether it is emergent or emerging it means one with the world culture. Churches and Christian colleges, who may not fully understand the subtle undermining of this spirituality from the world, the flesh and the devil, are endorsing and promoting it. An event (Movement 2009) took place on May 29th at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa (the Calvary Chapel mother church) with Rock Harbor pastor, Mike Erre.
The “kingdom of God” wicked theology that Erre presents is deadly broad. Erre states that there has been too much emphasis within Christianity on individual salvation and nothing on corporate salvation (i.e.., all of the world and creation being saved). He believes God is saving “all of creation” ( as seen on page 100 in his book Death by Church). Erre exalts uncertainty and doubt (always searching, never finding). He states: “Jesus brings mystery, paradox, and tension—rarely did someone get a straight answer out of Him” (p. 36). This sounds like New Perspective mendacious theology that is in Bible churches today. I have heard it. This teaching is totally counterfeit. It is a demonic lie from the pit of hell. God is not a God of confusion and the Biblical Christ must always be followed without question. He is the Word of God and His robe is dipped in blood; Revelation 19:13. Jesus Christ must always be uplifted in an all-holy manner, not analyzed as one would an insane neighbor who does not know what he is talking about. It is blasphemy to scrutinize Jesus Christ in a questioning manner. He is the Creator of the universe and its sustainer. Every knee will someday bow before Him!
“Erre’s kingdom theology is expressed throughout his book, “Death by Church. On page 132, he states that the gospel is “something bigger” than the “story of Jesus’ dying for the private sins of individuals…. it is the story of God’s kingdom being launched, on earth as in heaven, generating a new state of affairs. Atonement, redemption, and salvation are what happen on the way.” This emerging spirituality that does not see atonement, redemption, and salvation as a moment in history when Jesus Christ died on the Cross but rather an ongoing process that is continually growing, expanding, changing (see our review of An Emergent Manifesto of Hope). Erre states that “the end of the age does not result in the destruction of the earth but rather in its renewal.” Errie states: “Rather that waiting for the last days, we have been living in them since the coming of Jesus. Rather than waiting for the end to come, we are already living in the end times that will be consummated when Jesus returns” (p. 198). And, “The end of the age does not result in the destruction of the earth but rather in its renewal” (p. 212).”
“Erre sounds very much like a New Age Episcopalian priest (like N. T. Wright and others), and when he says ‘deep theology’ he actually means ‘deep ecumenism’ (‘deep’ meaning all-inclusive). Erre spouts that all of creation is being restored and saved. This runs redundantly throughout his book.”
Of course, true born again believers know that the road to heaven is narrow and few follow it. One can only be saved by being born again through the precious shed blood of Christ that cleanses from sin. The Bible is inerrant and it must be the only teaching of the church, never the doctrines and precepts of men. Sinful man always desires to become a god unto himself, according to what he thinks, has experienced or others have.
What true church that is commanded to be separated from the world, would meet in a nightclub as Rock Harbor did in its past? What church that believes the Bible is true and that women are to dress in bashfulness towards men as commanded, would put a cross next to a painting of a topless woman?
“COSTA MESA – It’s Palm Sunday at the Shark Club nightclub in Costa Mesa. Bibles lay on the ornate pool tables. Tattooed twenty-something are text-messaging furiously before the service. They sit on red velvet lounge chairs or bar stools under gleaming silver disco balls.
But the only thing on tap here is the grape juice for Communion.
A black curtain is draped over the bar, hiding the Bacardi, vodka and beer. A cross is propped next to a covered painting of a topless woman.”
“…They really know how to bring Christian relevance to our everyday atmosphere. It doesn’t feel that big to me,” said the marketing director of Fly by Night, a Huntington Beach disc jockey company.
“Here we are having church in a bar,” he said. “We’re not living in a Christian bubble. I came here once and was hooked ever since.”
(from an article by reporter—VALERIA GODINES)
From Rock Harbor’s websites:
“art as a bridge
art holds a significant place in our culture. movies, video, theatre, dance, and visual art are esteemed, explored and most importantly – understood in all areas of our society. we desire to use this common medium to communicate truth.”
http://www.rockharborswings.com/ At this link, you can view Rock Harbor’s advertisement for their swing dances, promoted as a chance to get to know others. They invite the unsaved to partake as well.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBRgOz8kYDo This sad, worldly video, reveals the truth of what I am stating. I do not recommend that men view this. If they desire to know what is taking place, I would ask for a wife or sister to watch. This clip is of a Rock Harbor dance team performing at Rick Warren’s church (Saddleback) that is homosexual affirming. This video shows girls, girls, girls and men love to see them dance this way! Christian men are called to view women in all chaste purity and anyone in their right mind recognizes this is not what this promotes. (1 Timothy 5:2) No church has a right to claim to be part of the body of Christ that engages in such lewdness.
In this newsletter (link above), they state “all styles of dance represented and welcomed!” Yes, there is an exclamation point. They also promote a performance called “Funny Bone.” They advertise it as being “hilarious and funny.” Where are our churches going? They are certainly apostate in every sense of the word.
Where in the Bible are we commanded to imitate culture? We are to hate this world and its productions, not mimic it for a trendy cultural look so the unsaved never witness the holy separated sacrifice. True believers are hated by society’s culture because they expose its sinful alluring agendas that spell “fun” for all. World = culture is a true equation.
John Calvin is also revered today in countless churches. He believed the human race would bruise satan on the head, not Jesus Christ when He conquered death through His tree of suffering and shame. …“we must necessarily come to one head, that we may find to whom the victory belongs … Wherefore, the sense will be (in my judgment) that the human race, which Satan was endeavouring to oppress, would at length be victorious.” Uplifting the sinful, vile human race is nothing new and uplifting false theologians who do so is nothing new.
When one truth of Scripture is thrown out the window, it opens all the windows for an invasion of lies. The Bible must be taught verse by verse, chapter by chapter with no compromise and with the listener’s ears wide open in this day and age of church apostasy. Scripture must be compared with Scripture in order for one not to be deceived. Man-made contrived interpretations must be confronted.
The church today wants to be worldly conforming, not separated from the world teachings, methodologies and terminologies. Most pastors do not want to stand on street corners preaching the Word of salvation or going door to door to reach the lost. They attempt to make the church look like the world and sound like the world so it is pleasing to all for numbers sake. They want mega churches and they want them their way without having to go out as the apostles and prophets exampled for all, for all ages. They were willing to die for the Gospel and did not seek to be viewed as cool, trendy and technology-wise.
The church is called the church because it is made up of believing Christians who abide in the truths of the Word of God (1 Corinthians 5:11 and 6:9-11). The church is to go out and save and then bring them in. I do not say true searching ones cannot be allowed in. Nevertheless, the church means the church of Jesus Christ, its Savior.
The church must shun Satan’s entertaining ways of allurement and return to the Biblical examples of reaching the lost. The church in general looks silly-stupid as it attempts to appear styling—holding to a rock-out mentality that uplifts Hollywood productions and present its own rock stars. And the apostate church craves Hollywood-like Gospel productions—the best in presentation.
It desires its own programs to be set before people like sitcoms. Very sick indeed! The contemporary mindset set forth is a lie from the pit of hell. Yet, contemporary-ism rules most churches.
I believe the church in general is walking the apostasy road because it craves the entertainers of the world and uplifts them as gods. Church attendees do not want to believe these live people-gods are of Satan and their idol entertainers are going to hell unless they repent of their ways. It is becoming more easy for church goers to believe everyone is going to reach heaven. The false teachers are tickling the ears of their make believe world. Christians no longer want to dwell on those things that are true, they relish the novel mentality.
The apostasy is becoming more grave as each day passes. May the church revive and come out from amongst them and be separate.
(some information accumulated and quoted)
This question was posed to me regarding “False Doctrine Beware.”
I must state first, in regards to Genesis 3:15, we are not dealing with an “it” as if in reference to the human race. “Heel” is in the masculine form. We also know from Romans 5:14-21, 1 Corinthians 15:21-25, etc. that this is a reference to Christ’s work. It was God’s prophecy concerning the Messiah. Calvin deliberately lied regarding God’s Word. The NASB states, “He (meaning the seed of God and man) shall bruise you (the serpent) on the head and you shall bruise Him (Jesus Christ) on the heel.” Satan knew exactly what this prophecy meant and that is why he wanted to murder Christ at His birth—Revelation 12:1-4)
“Where did you get the quote from John Calvin? The quotation says to me that those who come to the Head (Jesus Christ) will be victorious through what Jesus did on the cross for us. The victory belongs to us through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Here was my answer:
I trust you are being blessed today. Concerning Calvin, you can see his entire commentary on the bruising of Christ below.
It must be recognized Calvin, like false teachers today, spoke always out of both sides of his mouth. If you look at his commentary, you see that he speaks both ways. The “human race” is not the church though he tries to sound pious by ending his commentary, by slyly making it sound like the church. He talks like one from the Episcopalian church and the Episcopalian church loves Calvin. You must grasp the fact the “human race” is not the church as Calvin tries to infer. Only a very small fraction of the human race is saved and it consists of the “called out ones” from the human race. The Bible never refers to the church as the “human race.” The human race moves according to Satan’s influence. It will not destroy its own false god, Satan. Only Jesus Christ has that authority. Satan is still loose and roaming the earth.
The Seed is Christ, not the future generations that came from Eve, as explained by Calvin. Satan was not bound by the human race through future generations. The human race will never be victorious. The human race in general is bound for hell. Only the church is saved.
Calvin is wrong, the bruising did take place by one man only—Jesus Christ. When Paul refers to bruising in Romans 16:20 (see Calvin’s statements below), he is not referring to when Christ bruised Satan on the cross. We know Genesis 3:15 refers to the cross as it states to Satan, “you shall bruise Him on the heel.” Satan was not victorious in his attempt to destroy God on the cross.
And you must see, even from the Romans verse, that it states the LORD who will bruise Satan under the feet of the saints. We exalt only in Christ’s power not our own. We can do nothing apart from Him. What God is referring to in this verse in Romans is the fact Christ will usher in His kingdom following the tribulation (and will rule from Israel (Revelation 19:11-chapter 20). The bruising of Satan is not imparted to faithful men as Calvin states. It is through God and God alone. We cannot read into Scripture what is not there as Calvin consistently does.
Calvin lies and says the church has replaced Israel in his commentaries. He also stated that Christ did not die for all men. God is not a God of confusion, but Calvin is and so are his followers. Satan is the one whose doctrine never makes sense.
I hope you understand and see the truth.
Val (Colossians 1:9-14)
Calvin Commentary Genesis 3:15:
It shall bruise. 45 This passage affords too clear a proof of the great ignorance, dullness, and carelessness, which have prevailed among all the learned men of the Papacy. The feminine gender has crept in instead of the masculine or neuter. There has been none among them who would consult the Hebrew or Greek codices, or who would even compare the Latin copies with each other. 46 Therefore, by a common error, this most corrupt reading has been received. Then, a profane exposition of it has been invented, by applying to the mother of Christ what is said concerning her seed.
There is, indeed no ambiguity in the words here used by Moses; but I do not agree with others respecting their meaning; for other interpreters take the seed for Christ, without controversy; as if it were said, that some one would arise from the seed of the woman who should wound the serpent’s head. Gladly would I give my suffrage in support of their opinion, but that I regard the word seed as too violently distorted by them; for who will concede that a collective noun is to be understood of one man only? Further, as the perpetuity of the contest is noted, so victory is promised to the human race through a continual succession of ages. I explain, therefore, the seed to mean the posterity of the woman generally. But since experience teaches that not all the sons of Adam by far, arise as conquerors of the devil, we must necessarily come to one head, that we may find to whom the victory belongs. So Paul, from the seed of Abraham, leads us to Christ; because many were degenerate sons, and a considerable part adulterous, through infidelity; whence it follows that the unity of the body flows from the head. Wherefore, the sense will be (in my judgment) that the human race, which Satan was endeavoring to oppress, would at length be victorious. 47 In the meantime, we must keep in mind that method of conquering which the Scripture describes. Satan has, in all ages, led the sons of men “captive at his will”, and, to this day, retains his lamentable triumph over them, and for that reason is called the prince of the world, (John 12:31.) But because one stronger than he has descended from heaven, who will subdue him, hence it comes to pass that, in the same manner, the whole Church of God, under its Head, will gloriously exult over him. To this the declaration of Paul refers,
“The Lord shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly,”
By which words he signifies that the power of bruising Satan is imparted to faithful men, and thus the blessing is the common property of the whole Church; but he, at the same time, admonishes us, that it only has its commencement in this world; because God crowns none but well — tried wrestlers.
On May 5th Paul Smith, brother of Chuck Smith (the founder of the Calvary Chapel movement), was fired from his position in the Calvary Chapel (CCOF) organization during an unscheduled meeting that day. The motion to fire Paul Smith was made by board member Roger Wing and seconded by Chuck Smith’s son-in-law, Brian Broderson. Other board members affirmed the motion and Paul Smith was dismissed.
For some time now Paul Smith, who has been in full-time ministry since 1951, has been putting forth tireless efforts to help keep contemplative and emerging spirituality out of the Calvary Chapel movement. At times, this caused conflict with other Calvary Chapel figures who did not resonate with these efforts.
Calvary Chapel released a Position Paper denouncing mystical practices (i.e. contemplative prayer) and the emerging church. This weekend a position paper addressed to pastors was posted on the Calvary Chapel website. The paper indicates that Calvary Chapel is taking a stand against contemplative spirituality and the emerging church and decrees that the title Calvary Chapel not be attached to such movements.
In the Position Paper, Calvary Chapel pastors were told not to use the Calvary Chapel title on their church name if they were going to go in the contemplative/emerging direction.
Calvary Chapel is at a critical point in the history of the movement. If nothing more happens than a written statement, and pastors and churches are permitted to carry the name Calvary Chapel but embrace contemplative purpose driven seeker friendly market driven ideas, the movement will break into various segments. There are many Calvary Chapel pastors who are asking for this kind of clear cut direction and want Calvary Chapel to remain what it once was.
If Calvary Chapel stands firm on defending the gospel message and rejecting heretical demonic doctrines, it may be setting a precedent for other Christian ministries to do likewise. With organizations such as Purpose Driven, Zondervan,
(Zondervan Publishes the NIV Bible that omits hundreds of words and phrases from the Word of God by NIV translators. The “Godhead” in the NIV was completely removed from the Word of God. All the following words have been omitted from the NIV: Propitiation, regeneration, mercyseat, remission, Jehovah, immutable, omnipotent, Comforter, Messiah, infallible, et cetera. The word “sodomite” is completely gone, as are the words: fornication, carnal, effeminate, vanity, devils, Lucifer, damnation, brimstone, and the bottomless pit. Zondervan Publishers does not reveal they are OWNED by Harper Collins, which also publishes The Satanic Bible and The Joy of Gay Sex. http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/Zondervan-Corporation-Company-History.HTML Dr. Marten Woudstra, chairman on the NIV committee, was involved in sex perversion. He is quoted as saying that loving monogamous relationships between gay men or women were acceptable to God and that there was nothing in the Old Testament that spoke against the perversion. (Lies) Dr. Virginia Mollenkott, a literary critic on the NIV translation, was a sodomite. In Episcopal, Witness (June 1991, PP. 20-23), she comes out of the closet by saying, “My lesbianism has ALWAYS been a part of me. . .” This could explain why, “sodomite” is never found in the NIV. (Deut. 23:17, I Kings 14:24, 15:12 , 22:46 , II Kings 23:7) Not only that, but all other references to sodomy are perverted to say something else: 1Cor. 6:9, “. . . Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, . . .” is replaced with the “. . . Nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders. . .” According to Wikipedia.org, the New International Bible (NIV) printed by Zondervan is the most popular Bible version today. Zondervan Publishers does not reveal they are OWNED by Harper Collins, who also publishes The Satanic Bible and The Joy of Gay Sex. http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/Zondervan-Corporation-Company-History.HTML)
Nav Press publishers (Publishers of the heretical Message Bible), Willow Creek and Renovare, all promoting contemplative spirituality, and with many other ministries appearing to head that way; it is becoming less and less popular to do what Calvary Chapel has done. But it is a time in history when compromising the integrity of the Gospel could actually help to unfold the greatest spiritual deception Christianity has ever seen.
Calvary Distribution (the resource arm of Calvary Chapel) removed all Purpose Driven materials from their resource database. The pressures on young pastors today to conform to the current trends for the sake of having a successful big church are ever-increasing. The financial backing that is behind the birth of the current emerging church movement reveals the movement is not simply a “discontent grumblings of young people looking for answers” but entails a far more structured effort to bring about a new mystical spirituality that would ultimately reject the very core of the Bible’s main tenets and its inerrancy.
But as with most denominations and Christian organizations, there are indications that contemplative/emergent/Purpose Driven is continuing to influence the Calvary Chapel movement contrary to the efforts and statements of Chuck Smith in 2006. For instance, Calvary Chapel speaker Gayle Erwin has come out strong in support of the New Age sympathizing book, The Shack. Erwin’s endorsement for William Paul Young’s New York Times best-seller sits on The Shack website and says: Riveting with twists that defy your expectations while teaching powerful theological lessons without patronizing. I was crying by page 100. You cannot read it without your heart becoming involved.
Unfortunately, an event is scheduled between Rock Harbor and Calvary Chapel at the end of May. The conference will take place at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa and will feature Rock Harbor’s teaching pastor Mike Erre and worship team. Mike Erre is the author of a new book, Death by Church: Rescuing Jesus from His Followers, Recapturing God’s Hope for His People. The book is filled with kingdom-now theology—anti-Revelation, rapture and millennial, including dismissing the countless promises to the Jews found throughout the Word of God. Also numerous favorable references to and quotes by people like Brian McLaren, Dallas Willard, and other contemplative emerging figures. Based on this book alone, it is accurate to say that Erre has all the earmarks of a heretic, as an emerging church pastor. In Erre’s 2008 book, Why Guys Need God, he quotes and references a number of contemplative mystic-proponents: Richard Rohr, Larry Crabb, Pete Scazzero, Rob Belland others. It is very clear by Erre’s remarks about Richard Rohr (whom he references over a half a dozen times in the book) that he esteems him highly. And yet Rohr’s spirituality would be in the same camp as someone like Matthew Fox (author of The Coming of the Cosmic Christ) who believes in pantheism (god in trees, rocks, etc. A denial of Biblical God). Rohr wrote the foreword to a 2007 book called How Big is Your God? by Jesuit priest (from India) Paul Coutinho. In Coutinho’s book, he describes an interspiritual community where people of all religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity) worship the same God. How ironic that Paul Smith’s firing is sandwiched between two Rock Harbor events at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. Members at that church should be very, very concerned.
At a Calvary Chapel’s Costa Mesa’s high school, a teacher asked his class to read, review, and study How to Stay Christian in College written by Protestant-turned-Catholic J. Budziszewski. The book has references in the back of some editions to mystic emergent Tony Jones and Budziszewski himself is a proponent of contemplative prayer practices. Many families in today’s churches are trying to protect their children and teens from spiritual deception. Christian parents must realize that the souls of their youth are at stake. Satan is in churches trying to obtain them through the false demonic movement of contemporary Christianity.
Isaiah 11:1-5: “And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD. And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.”
This situation with Calvary Chapel is not isolated. Nearly every evangelical denomination and organization of any size in North America is going in this same direction to one degree or another. One key factor in why this is happening so rapidly is that Christian colleges, universities, and seminaries are heavily saturated with contemplative/emerging spirituality. Biola University, for instance, where many Calvary Chapel pastors have attended and graduated is deeply involved in this “new spirituality.” Satan is certainly increasing in power in these later days as the Bible predicted. Christ revealed, He would not find any faith on the earth when He returns. Faith in the inerrant Bible is dwindling every day from our churches.
The spirituality of the desert fathers has gotten a grip on the current theological thought and practice like no one could have predicted just a few years ago, thanks largely in part to the emerging church and the work of Rick Warren and Bill Hybels. Remember, mysticism is what gives the emerging church its momentum. Holistic doctor and author Dr. Rick Levy revealed that in 2008, 17 million Americans were practicing meditation (eastern-style). That number is up from 10 million in 2003. At that rate, in another five years it will probably be somewhere between 20 and 25 million. There is no doubt that this surge of mysticism will have a profound effect on virtually every North American family. This statistic is sobering when you consider what Richard Kirby observed: The meditation of advanced occultists is identical with the prayer of advanced mystics, it is no accident that both traditions use the same word for the highest reaches of their respective activities: contemplation. (Mission of Mystic) Mysticism (i.e. the satanic controlled occult) is overtaking all segments of society, and this means that the world is falling under the spell of sorceries (magical arts). This fact represents the book of Revelation and the belief system that will arise in the later days (Revelation 18:23). The acceptance of Harry Potter in the church has certainly been the springboard to what we now observe in our apostate fellowships.
Contemplative prayer or Spirituality defined:
Below is a simple definition and Wikipedia’s take:
Definition of Contemplative Spirituality: “A belief system that uses ancient mystical practices to induce altered states of consciousness (the silence) and is often wrapped in Christian terminology; the premise of contemplative spirituality is pantheistic (God is all) and pantheistic (God is in all). The purpose of contemplative prayer is to enter an altered state of consciousness in order to find one’s true self, thus finding God. This true self relates to the belief that man is basically good. Proponents of contemplative prayer teach that all human beings have a divine center and that all, not just born again believers, should practice contemplative prayer.”
In Christian mysticism, Contemplative prayer can refer to:
• Repetitive chanting, breathing in a controlled manner or silent concentration to quiet the thoughts and feelings and commune with God.
• Infused contemplation, for many writers, including St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila (both demonic Catholic mystics), the sole sense of the term;
• Acquired contemplation, also known as “Prayer of Simplicity”; or
• Centering prayer, which is sometimes called contemplative prayer, although “It is not contemplation in the strict sense, which in Catholic tradition has always been regarded as a pure gift of the Spirit, but rather it is a preparation for contemplation.”
“Contemplative consciousness,” says [Thomas] Merton, is “a Trans-cultural, Trans-religious, Trans-formed consciousness … it can shine through this or that system, religious or irreligious”
One question that has surfaced at various times in history is whether contemplative prayer is given only to select people or whether everyone is called towards it. Generally, the latter view has prevailed. In the 17th century, however, several writers, most notably John Baptist Scaramelli, taught, in reaction to Quietism, that asceticism and mysticism are two distinct paths to perfection; the former was the normal, ordinary end of the Christian life, and the latter, to which contemplative prayer belongs, is something extraordinary. The controversy was more or less resolved in the early 20th century with Arintero and Garrigou-Lagrange exonerating the view that infused contemplation is a normal development of the spiritual life. This is now the generally accepted position.
