The Old Testament: What It Really Teaches

Food for the Thinkers:

As much as conservative churchians may think America is doing the world a favor via its endless warmongering, there is simply no biblical justification whatsoever for any of America’s current wars.
America is not ancient Israel; the American military is not the Army of God; and NO American president is God.
Turn off Faux News and most of what passes for Christian media nowadays and pick up your Bible. Start with Deuteronomy 28 and you will quickly learn that God would not unconditionally always and forever bless Ancient Israel if they ignored His teachings. Why, then, do so many Americans think that God will perpetually heap unconditional blessings on America?
Ultimately, God would let Ancient Israel fall under several evil foreign tyrants. Why, then, does anyone think America will last forever?

Non-Christians have often accused the Old Testament of teaching violence, injustice, genocide, and racial prejudice. Even some who claim to be Christian distance themselves from the Old Testament and act as though God’s nature changed from the Old to the New, as if He were once a sour old crab, until His Son died on the cross and then God turned into a cosmic teddy bear who accepts everyone.

Does the Old Testament teach what its foes claim it teaches—racial prejudice, for example?

“As Ye Are, So Shall the Stranger Be Before the LORD”

Exodus 12:48-49:

“And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof. 49 One law…

Perpetual War for no Particular Reason

America has been at war for as long as almost anyone who will read this has been alive.

We just can keep out of war. Like the the generals and majors in the old XTC tune, we’d be “so unhappy ‘less [we had] a war.” Indeed, the elites never tire of manufacturing excuses for new wars.

Ever Wondered Why Kent Hovind Is In Prison?

Food for the Thinkers:

Persecution!

Originally posted on Planet Zion:


For those who do not know Kent Hovind, he is a creationist who exposed the evils of the coming New World Order, did many seminars exposing the lies of Evolution and revealed evidence proving that the Earth is quite young and not millions of years old. You may view his seminars and I highly recommend them if you haven’t already – they are absolutely worth it. He was later sentenced on January 19, 2007 and was sent to prison for ten years. So, would you like to know the true reasons as to why Kent Hovind, affectionately known as ‘Dr. Dino,’ is in prison? Well, the video above exposes some very shocking reasons as to why Kent is in prison right now.

In July 2006, Kent and his wife, Jo, awoke one night at their residence only to discover that a SWAT team was sent to drag them to jail…

I voted for Chuck Baldwin for president in 2008.

And Westboro is not the worst church in America.

Four Reasons Why Americans Support Warfare

Originally posted on Let There Be Right:

Note: There may well be more than four reasons, but these four are the ones which stand out to me. Also, not all Americans support aggressive warfare, so these reasons do not apply to those Americans. Further, these four do not equally apply to all Americans supporting warfare.

1. Many Americans lack skills for self-defense and self-sufficiency. For example, they wouldn’t know how to grow or hunt their own food. They also wouldn’t know how to use arms to defend themselves. Many Americans are also out-of-shape, so they couldn’t easily physically distance themselves on their own from trouble. Those who don’t make the effort to learn how to defend their own lives and their own property are more likely to support aggressive government warfare.  Big displays of government force against the enemies of their government reassure them.

George W. Bush and the Death of Christian Discernment

By Doug Newman – email me.
Here I am on Facebook.
Posted at Libertarian’s Forum and Reddit.
If you would like to post this elsewhere, please just link to this URL, as I update my articles frequently. Thanks!


“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” – Galatians 4:16

It took 193 years – 1787-1980 – for the United States to run up $1 trillion in debt. And it took just four years of the first Bush presidency – 1989-1993 – to add an additional $1 trillion to the $3 trillion debt that Ronald Reagan had left us.

And it wasn’t just the debt. It was a broken “no new taxes” pledge, bigger government absolutely everywhere, unprovoked war, devastating trade sanctions on Iraq, a guilty-until-proven-innocent racial quota bill and gun-free schools. The first Bush presidency was a disaster by any objective measure. Even so, millions on the right were perfectly happy with Bush 41. Happy enough to nominate him to run for re-election in 1992.

And in 1999, millions were still sufficiently blinded by party labels to support HW’s son W when he announced that he would run for president in 2000. And when, during a debate in Iowa, W claimed that Jesus had “changed his heart”, millions of evangelical Christians went positively GONZO – that is a theological term – on his behalf.

Whether or not W is a Christian is, as always, between him and God. It is not my position to judge. However, the fact that so many who profess Christ followed him blindly is very disturbing. Jimmy Carter talked about Jesus far more than W ever did. Obama has stated that he is a Christian and the same people who were absolutely GONZO for W positively drip with hatred for Obama. The folks at Westboro Baptist Church claim they are Christians. So do these jerkazoids.

Simply saying you are a Christian does not make you one. Jesus warned us to “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves” – Matthew 7:15. A few verses later He tells us that “by their fruits ye shall know them”. bush obama nothing changed

And just what were the fruits of W’s eight years in the White House? Unprovoked war, torture, spying, rogue police, guilt without trial, Medicare Part D, No Child Left Behind, tax-victim funding for Planned Parenthood and $5 trillion in new debt would be a decent start. If you liked W, you ought to love Obama.

“But he went after the terrorists.” The proper, constitutional, biblically defensible response to terrorism is a letter of marque and reprisal – i.e. a congressionally authorized warrant to pursue the specific perpetrators of things like 9/11. The mass murder of innocent Americans by Muslims does not justify the mass murder of innocent Muslims by Americans.

“But he quit drinking and he didn’t cheat on Laura.” Lots of guys get off the sauce and keep their zippers up. It doesn’t mean they should be president.

It didn’t matter what W did, because no matter what he did, millions considered it Christian. To paraphrase the Police tune, every little thing he did was Christian. But was it truly Christian? Not by any biblical measure.

And these same millions of people are oh so shocked that so many people could be deceived by Obama. Discernment died in America long before anyone ever heard of Obama. It is entirely fair to say that if there was ever a group of people who got exactly the government they deserved, it is these millions of Religious Right evangelicals getting Obama as their president. You reap what you sow. And if you heap endless praise on a perpetrator of immense evil, God is going to reward you with even more evil.

Constitutional attorney, author and educator KrisAnne Hall had this to say: “I believe that when we operate by FAITH, God is FAITHFUL to provide. When HIS people CONTINUE to vote the ‘lesser of two evils,’ God must assume we are satisfied with evil and lets us have it. You are proclaiming to God that His good choice is NOT electable in this country…and I weep for our children!”

W’s brother, former Florida governor Jeb, appears poised to seek the Republican nomination in 2016. And millions will support him for no other reason than that he is not a Democrat, and that his last name happens to be Bush.

He is a chicken hawk who has awarded Hillary Clinton with a medal of freedom, who supports Common Core, who made $2 million sitting on the board of a group that aggressively promoted Obamacare and who “want(s) to govern like LBJ“. But it won’t matter to these people. noelle bush

Why don’t they just go ahead and nominate Jeb’s daughter Noelle in 2016? You know, the one that got 10 days in the hole for crack possession? I mean, like, her name is Bush and she is not a Democrat.

And even though the Drug War did not prevent his own daughter from possessing crack, Jeb remains, like his father and brother before him, a strident drug warrior. The Obama deception, just like the W deception before it, is part of a Much Larger Story which millions of those who profess Christ refuse to acknowledge the truth, but rather seek comfort in lies. How many of those who have been just so GOOGLY – another theological term – over either of the last two presidents will one day bow down and worship the “son of perdition” who is described in II Thessalonians 2:2-11?

Instead of obsessing about who will be the next president, Christians need to focus on getting out of Babylon – Revelation 18:4. How many will actually do this?

blindly follow bush obama
