We Will Stand…for What?

But, as Lighthouse Trails has pointed out, the real problem with tonight’s event may well have to do with New Ager Roma Downey. Most will remember Downey as being connected to the docudrama for The History Channel, The Bible. Most may not be aware that Roma (along with husband, Mark Burnett) are heavily involved in New Age mysticism, in spite of calling themselves Christians. They seem to equate to people like Eckhardt Tolle, Neale Donald Walsch, Tony Robbins, and too many others to name here. Downey has endorsed books that fall squarely into the New Age category. Her theology is suspect only because of the company she keeps and her willingness to endorse books/authors who are not within Christian circles, but who are involved in mystical ones.

Oprah as God? Say It Ain’t So…

The problem with The Shack – from a theological perspective – is manifold. I have a Bachelor in Bible, a Masters in Biblical Studies, and a Doctorate in Theology. While I certainly do not know everything about the Bible (and don’t claim to), I do understand more than basic doctrine and theology. I have studied Greek and am currently taking more Hebrew. The theological ideology of The Shack is one that is filled to the brim with theological problems, if we are basing that work on the Bible. This is the case, loosely speaking.

The Social Gospel

But not long after Rauschenbush came to be deeply concerned for the poor he began writing extensively about ways to help them. One book he wrote in particular – “Christianizing the Social Order” – influenced protestant denominations throughout America. He eventually came to be known as “Father of the Social Gospel in America.”

Why Are Liberals Determined to Change America?

If it wasn’t so true, it might be comical. Unfortunately, because it is true, it is far from comical. When I ask (in the title of this article) why liberals seem to determined to change America, I’m speaking of what appears to be the general view held by a majority of liberals in America. Certainly, there are exceptions to every rule.

And the Normalcy Continues…

The point is that though judgment was coming and did come to Noah’s generation as well as Lot’s, life went on with a sense of normalcy that guided most people’s lives each day. In spite of the fact that Noah was building this huge boat in the middle of a field, people continued with their lives. They married, they gave in marriage, they worked, they cooked meals, they did the normal things that people do today.

The Elite Continues to Profit

The elite throughout the centuries have always done whatever they could to make as much money as possible off of the “little people” who are – to them – little more than serfs within their kingdom. We see this repeatedly going back to the Rothchild family when they realized that they could make a good deal of money by loaning their own money to governments, instead of individuals, families, or even small businesses. They stood to make a good deal more money through these loans to governments and the loan was always guaranteed because of that nation’s ability to tax the people in order to repay it.

Cultural Marxism and the Great Falling Away

I believe Paul was implying something far wider in scope than simply talking about those who professed to be Christians and then walked away completely. I now believe he was talking about a huge cultural shift that would take place worldwide in the End Times. I especially believe this would occur in places like America where the founding documents of our country referenced God, understood that He exists as Creator, and in fact, laid the foundation for this country solidly upon biblical principals. While this does not presuppose a covenant with God, the clear reality is that He was included in the process of creating America.
