Christians and the Old Testament, Part 4

Also note that our friend thoroughly believes alien life does exist in the galaxy though I’m quite certain he’s never been visited by any or had conversations with them. In short, he’s taking this on faith, based on hearsay and alleged anecdotal evidence from science. In essence though, there has been nothing that has proven beyond doubt that aliens exist, but our friend – though he is repulsed by the notion of any god existing – simply accepts without proof aliens existing. How this connects with the scientific mind or process is beyond me, but I’m quite sure he has rationalized it enough to believe it without issue.

Mosque at Ground Zero? Give Me a Break…

It is time that we put a halt to Islam’s reach in this country, and take back what has been lost.

President Obama Lied and Hillary Clinton Foams…

Buddies President Obama and Abbas

Clinton: Please Calm Down

Should it come as any type of surprise that the Healthcare Bill touted by President Obama includes what he said he would avoid for the American people?  In a recent report, President Obama is quoted from the days of his campaign for president in which he stated, “‘I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increases,’ the Illinois senator told a crowd in Dover, N.H. on Sept. 12, 2008. ‘Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes‘.”[1]

His comments certainly seemed straightforward enough.  I believe it is safe to assume that Barack Obama – at the time – meant no new taxes.

He repeated these sentiments later, saying, “‘As president,’ Obama repeated the pledge during his Feb. 24, 2009 address to a joint session of Congress.”  It is difficult to confuse the message.  Obama said he would not raise taxes.  “‘If your family earns less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not a single dime,’ the president said.

Did you read that?  He said “not a single dime.”  As it turns out though, the new Healthcare bill includes numerous taxes.  The article we refer to goes on to say, “The bulk of the $500 billion in tax increases in the new health care law targets households earning $250,000 and individuals earning $200,000 — for example, the increase in the Medicare payroll tax. But many of the taxes hit the general public at large.”[2]

In fact, by 2014, barring any legal delays and snafus, once this Healthcare plan goes into effect, it “will require all legal U.S. residents to purchase a government-approved health insurance plan beginning in 2014. Once the reconciliation bill is voted on in the Senate to amend the law signed by Obama this week, the individual mandate will require a single person to pay 2.5 percent of their income or $695 if they do not purchase health insurance.”[3] (emphasis added)

So, if you are a legal resident of the United States, you MUST purchase a government-approved insurance plan.  But wait a minute, I thought the Healthcare bill was simply going to be given or extended to everyone.  Now, not only are we being told that each person must purchase one, but we are being told that we will also be taxed to support the plan.  Hmm, that’s interesting.  Should that come as a shock?  Of course not, considering the high taxes people in Canada and Great Britain pay for THEIR “free” healthcare.  No mention is directly made regarding the requirements of all illegal residents of the United States.  It can be assumed then, that there will be no additional financial impact on these individuals.

When Obama ran for president, it was on the “hope and change” platform.  Maybe it should have been on the “take and take” platform, since this is what it is amounting to for the United States.  All those folks who were tricked into voting for President Obama have now put this country on the fastrack toward Socialism.  I hope they are proud of that fact.  They were “dared” from numerous quarters and they took the bait.  Oh come on, you’ve all heard the dares:

  • “This country will never elect a black man to office”
  • “Prove you’re not prejudice and vote black”

There were numerous other slogans that were touted as well.  Like the O.J. Simpson trial, which was ultimately about race, not whether Simpson committed the murders or not.  Of course we are not prejudice, so O.J. Simpson was absolutely not guilty.  Really?  It all comes out in the wash and God has the final say, because He is the only one who judges correctly.  So, the liberal whites fell for the “dare” so they would not be seen as prejudiced.  The blacks of course, had to vote for Obama or they would have been seen as an Uncle Tom.  The media got behind Obama because they like to create problems, rather than simply report on news.  In the end, we have another politician who is rather well skilled at the art of lying with a straight face.  Who knows what President Obama will try next.  Maybe he’ll attempt to turn the presidency into a monarchy.  He seems to have taken on that persona already, considering his demagoguery with respect to Israel, so he is getting close to considering himself to be the king of the United States.  So, that “hope and change,” it’s good for you?  Excellent.

Oh and by the way, while it causes great concern that the American people are going to face more taxes to get this Healthcare bill up and running (some estimates running as high as 1 TRILLION dollars!), apparently President Obama is now demanding another 2.8 BILLION dollars for Haiti.  It just keeps getting better and better.  It makes one wonder whether or not President Obama even realizes that the American economy is not only in the toilet, but on the verge of being flushed down that same toilet.

It also seems that Hillary Clinton, appointed by the Obama Administration to Secretary (so that she would not hold a grudge against President Obama for winning the election and shoving her to the side), has ramped up her criticism of Israel and Netanyahu (taking her cue from President Obama, who remains blissfully in the background for the most part, while she does his dirty work).

The problem with this administration’s posturing with regards to Israel is that it is what the minority of people in this country want and approve.  The rest of us believe that this type of demagoguery and chicanery is not only uncalled for, but deeply disturbing for our elected officials to treat leaders of Israel as they are doing.

In fact, with all the rhetoric that Clinton alone has used in the past, in which she promised unwavering and unswerving support of Israel, her new position against Israel has not gone unnoticed.  Many within her former constituency of New York have demanded an apology for the fact that she – like President Obama – has outright lied.

The Zionist Organization of America wrote a letter to Clinton, which stated in part:

Your shocking words about Israel building in east Jerusalem is especially perplexing in light of the fact that you have ignored Congress passing the ‘Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995′ by a margin of 93 to 5 in the U.S. Senate and 347 to 37 in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“The Act which is U.S. Law stated:

(1)    Jerusalem should remain an undivided city.

(2)    Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the state of Israel.’

It also stated

(1) Each sovereign nation, under international law and custom, may designate its own capital.

(2) Since 1950, the city of Jerusalem has been the capital of the State of Israel.

(3) The city of Jerusalem is the seat of Israel’s President, Parliament, and Supreme Court, and the site of numerous government ministries and social and cultural institutions.

(4) The city of Jerusalem is the spiritual center of Judaism, and is also considered a holy city by the members of other religious faiths.

(5) From 1948-1967, Jerusalem was a divided city and Israeli citizens of all faiths as well as Jewish citizens of all states  were denied access to holy sites in the area controlled by Jordan.

(6) In 1967, the city of Jerusalem was reunited during the conflict known as the Six Day War.

(7) Since 1967, Jerusalem has been a united city administered by Israel, and persons of all religious faiths have been guaranteed full access to holy sites within the city.

(8) This year marks the 28th consecutive year that Jerusalem has been administered as a unified city in which the rights of all faiths have been respected and protected.

(9) In 1990, the Congress unanimously adopted Senate Concurrent Resolution 106, which declares that the Congress “strongly believes that Jerusalem must remain an undivided city.”

(10) In 1992, the United States Senate and House of  Representatives unanimously adopted Senate Concurrent Resolution 113 of the One Hundred Second Congress to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, and reaffirming congressional sentiment that Jerusalem must remain an undivided city.”[4]

The article continued by quoting ZOA National President Morton A. Klein, who stated, “It took only a few months to confirm that Secretary of State Clinton bears little resemblance to Senator Clinton on Israel issues and was apparently misrepresenting her true views and beliefs on Israel to her New York constituents. From having once loudly proclaimed support for an undivided Jerusalem, upon becoming Secretary of State, suddenly, parts of an “undivided Jerusalem” became places where Jews may not move or build, even though Jews were a majority in eastern Jerusalem from the mid-1800s until 1948, when Jordan forced Jewish residents to flee, and are now a majority once again.”[5]

Even the United States House of Representatives got involved, drafting and submitting a letter to Clinton regarding her negative views on Israel.  “Signed by 327 Representatives, out of 435, the letter calls on Clinton and the Obama Administration to settle its disputes with Israel in a non-public and friendly fashion. The current tensions “will not advance the interests the U.S. and Israel share,” the letter states, as “above all, we must remain focused on the threat posed by the Iranian nuclear weapons program to Middle East peace and stability.“[6]

It appears that without the checks and balances, anti-Semitism easily comes to the fore.  The naively liberal will continue to believe that both President Obama and Clinton really have everyone’s best interests at heart.  The problem though is that both believe they can belittle, shun, and generally treat Netanyahu like garbage because they obviously favor Arabs over Jews.  This is no surprise, since this is exactly what Satan has been doing for centuries.  Why should godless politicians be any different?  The fact that politicians have been telling people what they want to hear for as long as their have been politicians should not be shocking to anyone.

What makes it odd though is when no real “spin” can be placed on their own verbal twists and turns.  In both cases – President Obama and Hillary Clinton – their lies are obvious, weighty, and severely damaging.  Left unchecked, they will continue to do what seems right in their own eyes.  Hopefully, the will of the House of Representatives and the letter from ZOA will have some effect in slowing down the growth of hostility within each of these two leaders, toward Israel and their right to build in their own capitol city.  If not, we will see what happens…

Brian McLaren: Assaulting Truth With a Vengeance

A New Kind of Christianity will serve as a lure for Bible-illiterate Christians. For believers who know the Word of God, McLaren’s heresy will sadden and astound. His book is aimed at the young, and at people who have perhaps grown up in households with little or no faith. It is aimed at the unsaved and the uncertain. It is for the disappointed and disenchanted, and for people who simply know no better. If you have a gripe against God or His people, this book will lick your wounds. But what this book will not do is provide any measure of godly hope and biblical virtue.

Islam Will Dominate

The sad fact of the matter is that even when no one says anything bad about Islam or Muhammad, Islamic extremists continue to rain terror down on people with suicide bomb missions, attacks by Taliban or Al Queda, or otherwise.

The Pre-Wrath What?

Having just received the latest Zion’s Fire, from Marv Rosenthal’s Zion’s Hope organization, I wondered how many pages I would have to turn before I came across some anti-PreTrib Rapture sentiment.

And They Say The PreTrib Rapture is THE Deception!

What creates lazy and unspiritual Christians is listening to, and heed to seducing spirits, who preach another gospel. That other gospel is found within the New Age Movement, which has surrepticiously made its way into the visible Church.

Always Ready and Watching?

We do not know when the Rapture will occur. Therefore, every day should be lived as if it is happening today. We should be about the Father’s business with the understanding that before this day closes, we could be ushered into His presence. Does that scenario bother you? You feel as if you are not being true to the integrity of Scripture? Okay, that’s fine. Then instead of the Rapture, substitute the phrase “your/my death.” Do you have any logical arguments at all that would prohibit you from believing that before this day ends, your life could end?

Imminency Is Not Scriptural…

We are here to do His bidding, not our own. We are also not here to involve ourselves in endless arguments over things that do not matter. In the coming days, Lord willing, I am going to fully dismantle this stupid argument that says that PreTribbers live carnal, unspiritual lives. THAT my friends, is nothing less than a LIE that has been perpetrated by dishonest Posttribbers, using everything at their disposal to cast doubt on something that they do not agree with, and the fact that some have gone so far as to virulently create a false conspiracy shows just how far they will go to castigate those with which they disagree.

Death May Trump Rapture AND Tribulation

Too many Posttribbers today are judgmental, unkind, uncharitable and filled with pride. They take their cue from their leader; Dave MacPherson; a man who is said to be living in “survivalist” mode in an earthen home in Utah, waiting for the Tribulation to begin. They have no right to judge and no right to condemn, yet it continues.
