Apostasy - Departure from the Will of God as the rule for the disposition and conduct of all responsible beings toward him and toward each other and as the rule for living, conformable with righteousness, and as the rule for action, obligatory on the conscience.
Ecclesiology Heresy - The conception and adoption of the "universal church" theory is the parent heresy in Church governance. How, when and where did this theory originate? The change from the ideal of the individual, self-governing church to the universal church had its origin in one of the most colossal blunders of all Christian history - that of making ecclesia and basileia identical. So far from being identical, the difference between "Church" and "Kingdom" is so great as to require that they may be contrasted rather than compared. Jesus and the writers of the New Testament never confused the two terms, never used one where the other can be substituted without doing violence to both terms. With two or three exceptions, ecclesia (gathering; Church) is used in the New Testament in the local, particular, multiple sense, while without a single exception, basileia (empire; Kingdom) is used in the singular and universal sense.
Restoration - If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
God’s Delegation to Man - Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth." 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth." 29 And God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food." And it was so. – Genesis 1:26-30
God did NOT give man Dominion over Man nor did He make Man subordinate to Creation.
But what about you? he asked. Who do you say I am? - Jesus the Messiah
13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, Who do people say the Son of Man is?
14 They replied, Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.
15 But what about you? he asked. Who do you say I am?
16 Simon Peter answered, You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.
17 Jesus replied, Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.
18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Matthew 16:1319
Arising in America A MultiReligion, PseudoChristian Movement - by Bruce DeLay August 1, 2012
As an American, I can stand shoulder to shoulder with other Patriotic folks, regardless of their race, religious creed or background and work to rescue our Nation. I have a track record of doing that very thing. But as a Christian, I cannot sit silently, much less actively participate, when the Christian Faith is being misrepresented and even redefined before my very eyes. We are currently watching a MultiReligion Pseudo Christian Movement arise rapidly in America. - Bruce DeLay
God-Given Rights are Under Assault - Randy Bright; February 19th, 2009
"I am 53 years old. In my lifetime I have never felt a loss of freedom or the threat of the loss of freedoms as I have in the last six months. Our country is in serious, serious trouble. And there is no shortage of people who want to take our freedoms away.
But our freedoms came from God - no one can really take them away from us, but they can, if we let them, prohibit us from exercising our rights.
Our Constitution was a gift from God, not from government. No country in history ever formally recognized mankind’s Natural Rights until our Founders wrote them down and made them our form of government.
Our Declaration of Independence was a gift from God, not from government. It was God who delivered our forefathers from the tyranny of the British crown to become the greatest, most generous, and most exemplary country that ever existed.
Our Bill of Rights was a gift from God, not from government. It was not until our rights were codified that people could actually live free and succeed, without fear of their government." - Randy Bright; Tulsa Beacon
None Dare To Call It Treason – Chapter 11 Excerpt - John Stormer; Liberty Bell Press 1964
Do you see any of this in evidence today? – OK-SAFE
Marx was a self-proclaimed scientist. His “scientific” theories explained the entire history of man and determined his future. They are to be used to transform man’s nature. Being “scientists,” communists have certain basic “scientific” laws which underlie their beliefs and teaching. They include:
There is no God. When communists deny God, they simultaneously deny every virtue and every value which originates with God. There are no moral absolutes, no right and wrong. The Ten Commandments and the Sermon On The Mount are invalid.
Accepting this concept of “morality” the communists teach that all is right which advances the cause of socialism. All is wrong which impedes its progress. For the communist, to lie, cheat, steal, or murder, is perfectly moral if it advances communism. Conversely, a communist who would refuse to lie, cheat, steal or murder to aid the socialist movement is immoral. In the words of Lenin:
We do not believe in eternal morality - our morality is entirely subordinated to the interests of the class struggle.
The second “scientific” law of communism follows the first logically. It is:
Man is simply matter in motion. As such, he is without soul, spirit, or free will and is not responsible for his own acts.
Marx taught that man was entirely an evolutionary animal, the highest animal form, without significant individual value or eternal life. Man is a body completely describable in terms of the laws of chemistry and physics.
The third “scientific” law, economic determinism, is to be the means for transforming man. It states:
Man is an economically determined animal. Qualities of human intelligence, personality, emotional and religious life merely reflect man’s economic environment. The evil a man does is just a reflection of his environment.
After coming to this conclusion, Marx taught that the only way man could be improved or changed would be to change or eliminate the evil-producing elements in man’s environment. He reasoned that the one common influence in man’s life was the economic environment. Mid-19th Century Europe’s predominant economic system was a rough-and-tumble combination of feudalism, mercantilism, and free enterprise. Marx called it capitalism and blamed it for all evil in man and the world. He concluded that the only way to eliminate evil and improve man was to destroy capitalism. Marx taught that this was both desirable and historically inevitable because the continued conflict between the classes had to produce change.
The inevitable outcome of the class war, according to Marx, was the triumph of the proletariat in a revolution which would destroy a decaying capitalism and replace it with socialism. Under socialism, the dictatorship of the proletariat (Communist Party) would work towards the establishment of communism.
Marx taught that once the material needs of man were satisfied, greed, profit-taking, avarice, and hate would disappear. The State would wither away. There would be no laws or need for a police force. A heaven on earth would result. Man’s nature would be magically transformed. Each would work according to his ability. Each would desire to receive only according to his needs.
To reach this goal, the proletariat must achieve control of the entire earth, Marx taught. All poisoning traces of capitalism must be eliminated. In practice, as the communists conquer a country, and if they conquer the world, they are left with those people raised in a capitalist environment. It has formed their character and personality. They will transmit the “illness” to their children. Being materialist “scientists” the communists do not hesitate. All the “animals” infected with the “disease” of capitalism and freedom must be exterminated. To the communists, this is not murder. Murder means killing for bad reasons. They will kill the bourgeoisie class for a “good” reason, the establishment of world communism. The “end” justifies the “means.”
The communists, therefore, are not interested in converting you, the reader, to communism, particularly if you are over 30 years of age. If you can be lulled into doing nothing to oppose the triumph of world communism, that is enough. Once the takeover comes, you, like millions of others, who believe in God and man’s responsibility for his own life and actions, can be slaughtered like diseased animals or worked to death in slave labor camps or brothels for the Red Army.
The communists are after your children or grandchildren who can still be molded into obedient slaves of the State.
Gus Hall, General Secretary of the Communist Party, USA, told Americans what to expect when the communists take over. Speaking at the funeral of Eugene Dennis in February 1961, Hall said:
I dream of the hour when the last Congressman is strangled to death on the guts of the last preacher – and since the Christians love to sing about the blood, why not give them a little of it.
Freedom in the U.S. is Now in Peril – Randy Bright, Tulsa Beacon; February 3, 2009
"Mann quoted Peter Marshall who said, “The time is come, it now is, when we ought to hear about the duties and responsibilities of our citizenship. America’s future depends upon her accepting and demonstrating God’s government.”
I agree. Our Constitution did come from God, but in recent years our government, under the pressure of a minority, has been systematically forcing God out of our government, and more precisely, has been attempting to make us believe the God had nothing to do with our Constitution." – Randy Bright
Christians Use Prophecy to Excuse Laziness – Chuck Baldwin; Feb. 3, 2009
"Had pastors and Christians of colonial America believed and acted as most Christians believe and act today, this country would still be a Crown colony and we would never have known the freedoms and liberties that our forebears bequeathed to us. Christians of that era, however, believed that it was their duty and obligation to fight for right and do everything within their power to resist tyranny. They also believed that God would honor and bless their efforts, which He certainly did!" – Chuck Baldwin
Pastors, Pulpits and Politics - By Mathew D. Staver
"Every election year thousands of pastors receive threatening letters claiming their churches will lose their tax-exempts status if they engage in any political activity. Don't believe the hype. Read the truth on what you can and can't do from the pulpit.
Pastors have a solemn duty to address moral and political issues that affect the culture. When millions of unborn children die as a result of our policies and politicians, pastors cannot remain silent. When the sanctity of marriage hangs in the balance, pastors must sound the alarm. The good news is that, as a pastor, you have far more freedom to speak out in the political arena than you might realize. The key to exercising those liberties is knowing them."
"From 1934 to the present, not one church has lost either its IRS tax-exempt letter ruling or its tax-exempt status for engaging in too much lobbying. Liberal groups are seeking to silence pastors and churches, but I encourage you as a pastor to throw off the muzzle secularists want to impose and pick up God's megaphone. It is time for pastors and churches to become the moral conscience of the community. Mathew D. Staver, Esq., is founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, a nationwide religious-freedom organization. He is also dean of Liberty University School of Law in Lynchburg, Va., and has argued cases in state and federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court." - By Mathew D. Staver
"So let's be plain: Despite Os Guinness's protestations, this is -- unavoidably -- a political document. Also, it's important to be plain about another unfortunate reality: There is an unseemly power struggle going on in the evangelical world these days. It is a struggle for leadership and dominance, for the right to be the unofficial spokesperson for evangelicals. The "religious left" has put forth men such as Jim Wallis. Rick Warren has had everyone from Bono to Barack Obama in his pulpit to help him assert his claim. The Emergent Church is putting forth Tony Jones and Brian McLaren, among others. And, of course, there are the "traditional" leaders of the so-called "religious right," including Gary Bauer, Tony Perkins, Chuck Colson, and James Dobson." - Warren Smith - Guest Columnist AFA online - 4/17/2008
ECOTHEOLOGY - Christianity to Earth Worship
The Earth Charter – Ecotheology Bible“The primary criticism which has been leveled against Christianity is that it has been instrumental in forming an anthropocentric (man-centered), rather than bio-centric or eco- centric attitude (i.e. one centered on living creatures or ecosystems respectively). White identities this attitude as arising from Genesis 1 and 2, where man is charged with naming the animals and given dominion over them.” - Kevin Cowtan; 29th April 2006
New American Theology of Civil Submission - Video; God or Man directed submission?
What does the study of world religions contribute to our understanding and stewardship of the environment? New movements in modern theological scholarship direct attention to the biological realm as well as the spiritual. - The rise of ecotheology; Valerie Brown
“Although religious organizations have long been engaged with issues of social justice, they have been relatively slow to mobilize on environmental issues. Maurice Strong, Chairman of the Earth Council and advisor to the U.N. Secretary-General and the President of the World Bank, described religious organizations at the time of the seminal 1972 Stockholm Conference on the Environment and Development as "interested but not involved," and said that not until after the environmental movement's "becalming" and "recession" during the 1980s did religions begin to actively address issues such as biodiversity, sustainable development, and climate change”. - The rise of ecotheology; Valerie Brown
Elisabet Sahtouris is a biologist who promotes a vision she believes will result in the sustainable health and well-being of humanity within the larger living systems of Earth and the cosmos. She is a lecturer in Gaia Theory and a co-worker with James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis. Annie Dillard, Pulitzer Prize-winning American author, also combined observations on nature and philosophical explorations in several ecotheological writings, including Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. Valerie Brown is a science and environmental journalist based in Portland, Oregon, whose work has appeared in Environmental Health Perspectives, 21stC, and other publications. She writes regularly about ecotheology. Terry Tempest Williams is a Mormon writer who sensitively and imaginatively explores ecotheology in her very personal writing. The majority of the content of Indians of the Americas, by former Bureau of Indian Affairs head John Collier, concerns the link between ecological sustainability and religion among Native North and South Americans. - Wikipedia
Founders Wisdom for Freedom – Quotes
"All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? Or do we imagine that we no longer need his assistance? I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth-that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the Ground without his Notice, is it probable that an Empire can rise without his Aid?"
- Benjamin Franklin (To Colleagues at the Constitutional Convention)
George Washington’s Prayer For Salvation - Written at age 20
“Almighty God, and most merciful Father…since Thou are a God of pure eyes….” - George Washington
Huckabee: A Christian with a Globalist World View
“Mr. Huckabee appeared before the globalist-minded Council on Foreign Relations and when he did, it became abundantly clear that Huckabee was a man globalists could trust. By the way, as you read Huckabee's speech ( http://www.cfr.org/publication/14335/ ), you will find that he is George W. Bush on steroids!” - Chuck Baldwin
“Belief can be a great thing, of course. Our Founding Fathers' unprecedented respect for liberty was born of their Christian belief that rights were bestowed by the divine king and not worldly ones. Mother Teresa's Christian beliefs inspired her to toil tirelessly to aid the destitute and dying in India. But whereas the founders kept charity out of government and Teresa kept government out of charity, Huck conflates the two in a disastrous mix of bad theology and bad political science. Perverting Christianity's message and violating 2000 years of its tradition, he believes it is his Christian mandate to do good works through government.” - Selwyn Duke
“For one thing, as did the Church in Nazi Germany, the Church in America has become infatuated with Big Government. Historically, patriotism in the United States meant love for God, love for family, and love for freedom and independence. Today, however, Christians of all persuasions have come to accept and even embrace the Nanny State,
complete with its intrinsic obsession with an omnipotent federal bureaucracy that exercises perpetual surveillance and absolute control over every area of our lives.” - Chuck Baldwin
Christianity: Root of Evil or Good? - Brian Ervin of Urban Tulsa Weekly
"As a result of the freedom and equality guaranteed to every person by the U.S. Constitution, Hindus, Muslims and adherents to any and every other religion in the world are welcomed and encouraged to come here and worship according to the dictates of their own consciences and cultural backgrounds. However, they are not free to come to the United States and establish caste systems or theocracies in the practice of their religions, or to establish any system in which the views of humanity and the cosmos specific to their religion can be imposed on the fabric of our society. In that regard, their religious freedoms are limited to what's allowed by the U.S. Constitution, which assumes concepts of human nature and religious freedom from a distinctly Christian worldview."
