In The Law of God and World War 3, I challenged the idea that double-minded Judeo-Christianity can be authentic Christianity from the perspective of Yahweh's Laws and the priesthood. Now, I want to submit five succinct reasons why mainstream Judeo-Christianity cannot be authentic Christianity.
I have stated that I reject Judeo-Christianity because they are not drawn to what is true, righteous and just. These five examples serve to prove that mainstream "evangelical" core doctrines today cannot represent what is true, righteous and just. They have become dangerously antinomianist and universalist in both their interpretation of the Word of God and in its execution. They have abandoned the eternal Commandments, Statues and Judgments of a Sovereign God. They unfailingly support an apartheid, imperialist, anti-Christ enemy. If you think this sounds unjustifiably harsh, judgmental and bitter, please leave now, because I will be giving you details you will not accept. If you see any truth it this analysis, read on.
Reason #1: Judeo-Christianity denies our New Covenant reality
Of the approximately 35,000 denominations in this nation today, many have the term "New Covenant" in their name; they consider themselves "New Covenant Christians." Sadly, many of these denominations cannot tell you what the New Covenant is, and fewer still can tell you with whom the Covenant was made.
One organization which claims the Bible has answers to this problem is gotquestions.org. They correctly ascertain the definition of the New Covenant is found in Jeremiah Chapter 31. They correctly conclude that Jesus Christ came to fulfill the Law of Moses, and that Jesus confirmed the New Covenant 2000 years ago with His Disciples. Then, they ignore what the prophet Jeremiah actually said concerning the recipients of the Covenant:
Now that we are under the new covenant, we are not under the penalty of the law. We are now given the opportunity to receive salvation as a free gift...
("What is the New Covenant")
Who is the "we" that gotquestions.org is referring to? Let's look at the actual text of the promise found beginning in Jeremiah 31:31:
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD... (verses 31 and 32, KJV)
As the Inspired Word clearly says, the Covenant was between the Yahweh and the Houses of Israel and Judah. The prophet is unambiguous: these were the same people who had broken their earlier covenant, and were led out of the land of Egypt. Jeremiah then goes on to say:
But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Unless you can make all peoples of planet earth literal Israelites, who were led by the hand out of Egypt, the New Covenant was a promise extended only to the Covenant people: Israel. Ezekiel made the distinction in his "two sticks" prophecy as found in Ezekiel Chapter 37. Hosea made the distinction in his prophecy of restoration as found in Hosea Chapter 1. It is the restored House of Israel and the House of Judah who were the bride, and to whom alone were give the promises, as Paul affirmed in his epistle to the Romans, Chapter 9 verses 1 through 5.
If you'd like a clue as to whom the promise applied in the first century, when Christ confirmed the Covenant, read Hebrews Chapter 8, beginning with verse 8. The Hebrew writer is writing to Hebrews, and applying the promises to the Covenant people scattered among the nations 2000 years ago. He does it by applying - verbatim - the exact words of the prophet Jeremiah!
The presumed Bible authority, gotanswers.org, continues:
The apostle John declared that Jesus Christ is the propitiation for the sins of the entire world [all races and nationalities]... ("Is Christianity a white man's religion?")
Did the Apostle John extend the "propitiation for sin" to all peoples of planet earth in 1 John 2:2 as gotanswers.org claims? Let's read the passage:
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world (cosmos).
The Greek world translated "world" by the King James is cosmos (Strongs G2889) which has the meaning of created order. It does not mean spherical planet earth. In other words, the old order was to be done away with the arrival of a New Heavens and a New Earth. Only one people were called His peculiar treasure through Covenant, and only one people were married to God. It was their order - their "world" - not the order of all the races of humankind. Moreover, we also find that the target of John's writing is identified as being Israelites, who had previously be given the Law (1 John 2:7).
What gotanswers.org is teaching here is that the New Covenant promise has been extended to all peoples - even though such an extending of the promise is nowhere to be found in Bible. In fact, as we have seen, the Bible teaches the precise opposite.
Are we really in the New Covenant? Confusingly, although Judeo-Christians teach that the New Covenant promise is here and now, they also teach that it is yet-to-come! Let's quickly look at why:
- The arrival of the New Covenant is tied to the New Heavens and the New Earth, which was prophesied to arrive after the Last Days events. Since Judeo-Christianity teaches that we are currently in the Last Days, they are teaching that we cannot now be in the New Covenant. In other words: if we are either currently in the Last Days, or the Last Days is in the future, then the New Covenant is in the future!
- Judeo-Christianity teaches that the Jews today comprise the Covenant people. We are taught from the pulpit that it is contemporary Jewry which is to obtain salvation according to the foreknowledge of the Father (1 Peter 1:2). We are asked to believe that it is today's Jews which follow by their nature the "law of righteousness" (Titus 1:1).
Since today's Jews compositely reject our Savior, it cannot both be true that the Jews are the "chosen people" (something the Bible never says) and that we are in the New Covenant. It logically cannot be true that the "law is in their inward parts" and they reject the Messiah.
It gets worse. If one denies the current New Covenant reality, then one denies God's current tabernacling among men (Revelation 21:3). Consider this: if the process of Inner Dwelling began 2000 years ago, then the New Jerusalem - the Holy City - must also be here and now as part of the New Covenant promise. Since mainstream Judeo-Christianity is looking forward to a future temple and a future city, they are rejecting the fulfilled promise! As I stated in my blog entitled Heaven:
Jesus directly quoted Daniel 9:27 in Matthew 14:15 and applied it to His then, living, breathing generation! If the New Jerusalem is not yet in place, then God does not yet dwell within us!
We see, then, that mainstream "evangelical" Christianity does not understand what the New Covenant promise truly is, and to whom it was given. When they attempt to apply the New Covenant to us today, it nearly always is in the context of us being freed from the Mosaic Law Covenant, thus freeing us to live more freely through "Grace" - outside the bounds of any prescribed set of rules ensuring we govern by that which is true, righteous and just.
Reason #2: Judeo-Christianity facilitates bloody, unwarranted wars and aligns itself with the enemy
Mainstream "evangelical" Judeo-Christianity teaches that Zionism - an international movement to "return the Jewish people to their land" - is not only justifiable and biblically supportable, but enforceable by national and international law. They believe a right for these people (often called the Diaspora) to occupy the ancient Holy Land is prescribed in Genesis Chapters 12 and 15, where God promises to Abraham and his descendants the region.
This is the primary reason why I will not worship at a Judeo-Christian fellowship in any way, and actively encourage all professing Christians to leave their Zionist fellowships before the Judgment of a Righteous God falls upon them!
Mainline Christians are beginning to realize that “Christian Zionism” is a misnomer, a sort of faith based oxymoron, an impossibility to those who follow Christ. As of yet, we do not know of a denomination that has declared the Zionist leaning church down the street to be an open mission field, but they should. (Charles E. Carlson)
It is commonly taught that we, as "Gentile" Christians, should support without wavering the Israeli occupation of Palestine and the West Bank. It is because of this error, which is known as Christian Zionism, that mainstream Christianity fervently supports open murder against the Palestinians, and the Arab nations as a whole.
Zionism has led to seemingly endless engagements against nations like Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Jordan and Lebanon. As of the time of this writing, the U.S. and many of its allies have fabricated excuses for proposing war against Syria. Most professing Christians that I know either don't know - or don't care - that many thousands of Christian Palestinians are brutalized and killed precisely because of Zionism:
Palestinian Christians find themselves attacked or betrayed from all sides. Israel regards them as Arab Palestinians, while extremist Muslims view them as Western collaborators [with Israel]. (Palestine, Voice of the Martyrs)
Although nobody seriously disputes that it is the policy of the Israeli state to exterminate Palestinians, mainstream "evangelical" Christians side with the brutal oppressors: the Israelis.
The United Nations have leveled dozens of condemnations against the Israeli state, which have been ignored.. The language of the resolutions are decisive: "gross and systematic human rights violations of the Lebanese people...massacre of thousands of civilians...continuing senseless killings by Israel, with impunity, of children, women, the elderly and other civilians... willful killing of Palestinian civilians, including women and children, constitutes a gross violation of human rights law and international humanitarian law... Calls for urgent international action to put an immediate end to the grave violations committed by the occupying Power, Israel, in the Occupied Palestinian Territory..."
What does mainstream Judeo-Christianity say in response? They either attempt to de-legitimatize the United Nations (which actually created the Israeli state through resolution) or claim that similar atrocities committed against the Israeli state were not identified and dealt with. I used to think like this, but have since found out I was very, very wrong. The Israeli state has been repeatedly caught firing "Palestinian" missiles into their land, setting up bogus Al Qaeda cells and instigating false-flag bombings and attacks all over the world - for decades!
The Israelis have - and routinely use - chemical weapons. They use human shields. They have both stolen and sold our technology to our enemies. They have infiltrated the highest levels of our government with organizations like AIPAC. They do these things with impunity, and, if you should object, you are an "anti-Semite."
The Israelis - who do not call themselves Israelites or officially proclaim they are Israelites - have continually disobeyed the Law given to Moses: the Hebrew should not oppress the strangers in their lands (Exodus 12:49, 22:21, 23:9, Leviticus 19:33-34, 25:35, Deuteronomy 10:18-19, 23:7, 24:17, 27:19)
Mainstream Judeo-Christianity has continually disobeyed the same commandments, and they also have blood on their hands. On one hand they preach: "God loves you! He has a wonderful Plan for your life!" Then, they turn around and support without question the IDF assignation of little kids making their way to school, the building of walls on Palestinian land, curfews, poisoning of Palestinian wells, the bulldozing of their homes and orchards - I can go on and on.
Mainstream Judeo-Christianity believes they are on the side of truth. They actually believe such oppression is justified as a form of Divine Judgment. Christian Zionism is often aptly described as a pathology:
People no longer are "neighbors" but are objectified into enemies who lose their individuality and their human face. Since there is nothing explicit in the Bible about loving groups of neighbors, one can justify categories of liberals, terrorists and atheists as objects for extinction. Palestinians and Iraqis, for example, become "rag heads" and "terrorists:" "Better we should kill them over there than have them kill us over here" are words right out of the mouths of American Christians. (The Pathology of Christian Zionism, Rev. Stan Moody, Ph.D.)
It should be obvious by now that Judeo-Christianity is not serious about their gospel of reaching out to all peoples everywhere, in expression of Christian love and unity. More on this shortly.
My appeal to the professing Christian continues: if your congregation is Zionist, LEAVE. You'll be in good company. Consider the testimony of Frank Shaeffer, the son of the famous evangelist Francis Schaeffer:
I grew up in a home where the "return of the Jews to Israel" was seen as "proof" of "God fulfilling prophecy" in order to expedite the return of Christ. I changed my mind and I changed my politics. (Frank Schaeffer, With God on Our Side -- Christian Zionism Exposed)
There is much more to this problem than the misidentification of the Israel people of God. The problem of Zionism reveals to us a ghastly truth: the judaized, Zionist roots of mainstream "evangelical" Christianity, particularly in the West, has no more humanity and compassion than that of a beast. They have become the real racists and the real haters. The question must be asked: have they become the real terrorist threat?
And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding... (Daniel 2:21)
How much more will their ignorance and indifference be tolerated by a changeless God Who demands perpetual obedience to His Law, which alone is true, righteous and just?
Reason #3: Judeo-Christianity teaches a different Gospel of Jesus Christ
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is foundational to the Church. It is our mission and our passion. It defines us as a people, and gives us purpose now, as it has for millennia. We are to defend it as Paul defended it (Philippians 1:16.)
Yet, the vast majority of professing Christianity doesn't even know what the Gospel of Jesus Christ is! I completed a blog and podcast entitled A Different Gospel a couple of years ago, but I want to emphasize now how having a different gospel is indicative of believing different things.
Here is most would agree to be a mainstream view of the Gospel:
"Gospel" means "Good News." A gospel presents the Good News that Jesus Christ has made salvation available to all people, not just Jews. (The Gospel of Jesus Christ, God on the Net)
Here is a more thoughtful definition:
...all mankind was lost in Adam and became the children of wrath, put under the sentence of death, God, though He left His fallen angels and has reserved them in the chains of eternal darkness, yet He has thought upon the children of men and has provided a way of atonement to reconcile them to Himself... (Jeremiah Burroughs, Directory of Theology)
Contrast now with this biblical definition of the Gospel:
The prophetic promises of salvation, restoration and redemption given to Israel now apply to Israel through the regenerative, atoning work of Christ.
Judeo-Christianity has redefined the Gospel of Jesus Christ to conform with their universal view of salvation. In order to do that, they must take the prophecies given to Israel and apply them to all peoples. Also, in contrast to what was written by John Calvin and Martin Luther, many now also teach that the Law of God has been supplanted by His Grace. For them, Salvation is simply analogous with Eternal Life, and is a gift that any person need only ask for to avoid eternal torment and damnation.
From the prophesied birth of our Savior to His prophesied death, all the prophets - without exception - attributed the salvation process afforded by Christ as being applicable to Israel. Nothing changed in the New Testament revelation:
But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
(Romans 10:21, ref: Isaiah 65:2)
Paul is speaking here to Israelites (Romans 4:1, Romans 4:16) who were the disobedient and gainsaying people (Ezekiel 36:19-20) and to whom alone were given the promises (Romans 9:1-5). Paul even applies a prophecy given by the prophet of Israel his Roman audience!
Let's look at these words from the lips of our precious Savior:
..But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (Matthew 10:6)
But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (Matthew 15:24)
Work with me here: what gives us the authority to extend the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all peoples on planet earth? (For those of you who appeal to Galatians 3:28, as is commonly done, please read Are You Redeemed?)
So much confusion comes from the common assumption that "Gentile" means "non-Israelite" or "non-Jew." If you think that the Gospel is applicable to all peoples because all the Gentiles are non-Israelites, I encourage you to review Who Were the Gentiles? Gentiles is a transliterated term; it simply means "nations." How it is used determines its context. As used in the New Testament, it more often than not refers to Israelites who were scattered - the very targets of the Gospel of Jesus Christ:
James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered (diaspora) abroad, greeting.
In order for mainstream Christianity to apply all the good stuff to all peoples, its leaders and teachers must be able to demonstrate that all the peoples of planet earth descended from Noah and his genetically pure family only 4300 years ago, and they must be able to find anywhere in the Bible that all believing peoples of every ethnicity were the people targeted by the ministry of Jesus Christ and His Disciples - both originally and now. For ten years now I have seen and heard what I believe to be every desperate attempt to do so, and every one falls way short of success. Entire apologetic ministries, such as Answers in Genesis, exist to answer this problem, to the ridicule of any honest, thinking truth-seeker.
Next, briefly, let's also look at the relationship between the Law and the Gospel. This has been confusing for centuries to many. Consider the words of this great man of God:
There is no point on which men make greater mistakes than on the relation which exists between the law and the gospel. Some men put the law instead of the gospel; others put gospel instead of the law. A certain class maintains that the law and the gospel are mixed...These men understand not the truth and are false teachers. (C.H. Spurgeon, New Park Street Pulpit, 1855)
There is an abundance of such false teachers today, who, in seeking to make theology relevant and upbeat, de-emphasize the requirement for God's people to be obedient to His Eternal Commandments, Statutes and Judgments (or face the consequences!) And - guess what - these false teachers are trying to force the Gospel of Jesus Christ into their gospel of personal prosperity.
Truly, the gospel being preached by Joel Osteen is closer to the mainstream than what is taught in the Inspired Word of God.
Reason #4: Judeo-Christianity denies Israel's current salvation
Most of us will agree that Salvation can be defined as:
.".. God's way of providing his people deliverance from sin and spiritual death through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ... By faith in Jesus Christ, believers are saved from God's judgment of sin and its consequence—eternal death. " (What is God's Plan of Salvation, christianity.about.com)
We have seen that Judeo-Christianity has redefined "God's people" as being any believing person, and they do this by claiming that all human beings today trace their descendancy from Adam and Eve:
But God already had a plan in place to deal with man's sin. The Bible is the story of God's plan for man. Adam is "our" beginning, and we are all his descendants. (Adam, the First Man, christianity.about.com)
If Adam was specific to a progenitor of a specific people, then Salvation is only for him and His progeny. But, if Adam was the very first human being, and all the races of man sprang from him, then all the races of man are included in the Salvation promises. Which view is correct?
The Hebrew demands that Adam was of a specific racial type. Here is an excerpt from my blog and podcast entitled The Man:
The man created in Genesis Chapter 1 is adam (aw-dam) (Strongs H120). It is not disputed that the Hebrew meaning of this word has to do with the ability to blush, or to show redness. The definition of Adam, according to the Hebrew and Chaldee Dictionary in the back of Strong's Exhaustive Concordance, is: 119: aw-dam'; to show blood (in the face) i.e. flush or turn rosy;- be (dyed, made) red (ruddy). It will also surprise most Christians today that many western languages have ties to the ancient Hebrew, and thus we find Adam in the Finnish, Irish, Italian, Lithuania, medieval English, German, Portuguese and Spanish, and all these languages have variations of the word "Adam." None of these variations have a connotation of "human being."
There is no biblical, historical or anthropological or etymological evidence that from Adamic man we find the origination of all ethnicities of human kind. One actually has to hold to a form of evolution to believe that all the races of humanity came from a White person, as not only the Hebrew texts, but virtually ALL Assyrian, Babylonian, Vedic and Sumerian texts unequivocally state the created man to be! Consequently - to be honest - we must conclude that whatever the Salvation promised by the God to the man Adam actually is, it is not necessarily applicable to all humans.
Consider that the ancestors of other peoples did not sin and rebel against the Hebrew God. Their ancestors may not have even been tending the Garden at all, but worshipping another god, in another place! Neither were their ancestors given the Law by Moses at Mount Sinai. In fact, we find few prophecies at all which were not given to the Covenant people, which traced their descendancy to Adam, and were thus under the "curse of death."
The Bible is largely silent about the other peoples, and concerns the relationship between Yahweh, the tribal God of the Hebrews, from His Revelation to Adam - the first aw-dam'- to the Last Aw-dam' and the new Revelation which restores the original relationship between God and man. So, we can see that Judeo-Christianity cannot be right in their gospel that "salvation" is extended to all believing peoples. The Salvation of the Covenant people was never to be their inheritance! There is much more here we have to deal with. The other peoples were never scattered in their disobedience (Jeremiah 3:13-14) and they never broke a marriage covenant to the Hebrew God (Hebrews 8:9, Jeremiah 31:32).
Think about this. How can the wages of sin (Romans 6:32) apply to a people that were never given the Law, and thus never sinned? Jesus died for the sins of a people (Romans 5:8) - but where do we find that these people were any people but the Covenant people, for whom He was to be King? Why would Yahweh condemn a people whose ancestors never heard the Law to begin with (Romans 8:1?) Why would God provide for the "redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament" for a people who were never under the first testament (Covenant) to begin with?
As I detailed in the blog and podcast Salvation, any time the word appears in the Bible, it has to do with His Covenant people. Judeo-Christianity has tragically missed the mark on the target of salvation, and - in the process - has redefined Salvation.
Judeo-Christianity teaches personal salvation, but the Hebrew Bible teaches a composite salvation for a people, who had transgressed against their God, with Whom they had made a Covenant. Their personal "salvation" is more aligned with the personal satisfaction of having eternal life in Heaven than the reconciliation of His People for His Glory through the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
The Salvation actually found in the Bible, concerns the restoration of a specific people from a hopeless state of separation (divorce) back to their God, through Redemption, for His Glory. The availability of Eternal Life to Adamic man positively hinged upon the completion of the Death, Burial and Resurrection of the Perfect Lamb of God!
Here it is: if biblical Salvation concerns the reconciliation of His People to Him for His Glory, and His People are the Jews today, we have a serious problem. If Salvation is to the Jew first, and then us (the "Gentiles") - and today's Jews are awaiting their salvation - where is our Salvation today?
Has death really been defeated if the Perfect Sacrifice has not fully and eternally been applied? If the defeat of death is tied to the completed Work of Jesus, and Jesus' Work is not yet completed, where is our Victory over death?
Let's put it another way. If today's Jews have yet to realize the prophesied hope of the New Heavens and New Earth, a new Temple and a Better Sacrifice, where is our current salvation hope? Where does God tabernacle? Was His Sacrifice not sufficient, and isn't the Work of the Perfect Lamb complete? If our joy and our refuge is found in our salvation (Psalms 51:12, Psalms 62:7) but our salvation is tied to that of the Jews, then is our is our joy and refuge here and now?
I often ask why we are told to "look up, for our redemption draweth nigh" and also sing: "I've been redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb!" Which is it?
What a confusing jumble of words and concepts that Judeo-Christianity uses to work around the salvation problem, and most of it has to do with their denial of the true Covenant people of God, a passion to make Israel's soteriological promises universal, and the denial of the fulfilled Work of Jesus Christ, our King.
Reason #5: Judeo-Christianity denies God's Sovereign Authority
How often do we hear about the coming King of Kings and the "end of the world!" Since I was a kid, I have heard the warning: "He can come at any moment!" As a teenager, I used to solemnly sing I Wish We'd All Been Ready at the Vespers service at our local Christian camp. Fortunately, at the end of one of those services, I walked down the path to the front and committed my life to God. Whoever He was, I vowed to live for Him absolutely, with no compromise. That was over 40 long years ago.
Even though I was falsely told we were in the Last Days, and Jesus can come "at any moment" I knew then that there was a deeper reason why I should come forward. I believed that He is truly the King of Kings. For every King there is Government, and for every Government there is Law. For every law, there are people under it. How very simple this idea, and how tragic that this was not explained so simply to me then! It took years for God to get it through my thick skull that I really, really, cannot serve two masters. Moreover, he is in authority NOW here on earth - not Satan (as dispensational Judeo-Christianity typically teaches). For proof, simply read Matthew 28:18!
Listen very, very carefully: if Yahweh is our God, and He is Sovereign and He is Holy, then His Laws are Perfect. There is no law that man can create that is Perfect; we must then obey HIS PERFECT LAW. In doing this, we implement the Kingdom here on earth, as it is in Heaven.
We, who are His People and are called by His Name, are supposed to be bound to obey His Law as the sole source of authority. Mainstream, "evangelical" Judeo-Christianity ignores or rejects the profound but simple and eternal command: Be ye Holy as I am Holy.
We live now in country where we elect representatives, and vote in presidents, that enact legislation which is in opposition to the Law of God. Abominations like homosexuality and abortion, which result in judgment and eternal damnation by our God, are not only legal but are often actively encouraged. We passionately and publicly proclaim that that the U.S. Constitution is the "law of the land" and that we are bound by it and its "sovereign" authority .
Our people are enslaved by a usury-based monetary system. Our nation has become a yet another imperialist state, continually invading innocent, sovereign nations with impunity.
We allow - even encourage - both women and the stranger to rule over us. We marry into other races and faiths in defiance of the patriarchal Christian family order and God's eternal demand for racial purity.
We pollute our land with genetically-modified crops hosed down with poisons.
Judeo-Christian churches often teach that God will "accept you as you are" with no requirement for humble repentance and perpetual obedience. It seems every passing day a new proclamation is made by "progressive Christian leaders" which sinks us deeper into the abyss. In the news the day of this writing is a declaration by Pope Francis that he "was not in a position to judge homosexuals" and ."..it is not possible to interfere spiritually in the life of a person."
Words like "merciful" and "acceptance" have trumped words like "righteous" and "sovereign" in an attempt not to "socially wound" those like "homosexuals who are of good will and in search of God:"
A great many pulpits no longer preach strong and hard against sin. They preach forgiveness, acceptance and being nice. It's safe territory, and keeps the numbers up. "Forgive even the unrepentant." "Love the sinner but hate the sin." The endless stream of falsehoods from these pulpits continue to fill our books and our programming, building lie upon lie, until the average professing Christian can no longer discern what is right and what is wrong.
Judeo-Christians say they desire prayer over substantive action against the enemy, because they also teach the enemy is our brother. Their leaders will preach on one Sunday that God is a "God of Love" and "does not wish that anyone should perish." But all the smiles are gone the very next Sunday, when they openly preach the need for a pre-emptive strike against the rag-headed Muslim heathen in Iraq, and how the fiery pit full of everlasting torture is the destination for everybody but themselves. Jesus Himself is guiding the depleted uranium warheads and phosphor bombing the heathen, burning the skins of innocent men, women and children who do not want war, but simply want to govern themselves and worship their gods in their way. Ours is the holier "holy war" - bombing democracy to oblivion in the name of spreading democracy.
Newspapers every day across this once-great nation report another Church official has been arrested for rape or child molestation. Congregations who have always viewed the problem to be only in other congregations and denominations are stunned when their own leadership is brought down by drug abuse or sexual promiscuity. My bet is that there is not a single one of us that cannot site more than one example of this problem in their own neighborhood!
"Just look at us. Everything is backwards; everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the major media destroy information, and religions destroy spirituality."
-- Dr. Michael Ellner
You tell me: does the Judeo-Christian today truly view the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as the King of Kings? Positively not. Are they building His Kingdom here on earth right now? Certainly not. Indeed, their salt has long lost its savor. It is a religion that is upside-down, as is so much else around us today.
By now, it should be obvious to any honest person, who loves the Lord and seeks after truth, that mainstream Judeo-Christianity cannot be authentic Christianity. In fact, it is so different from biblical Christianity that it has become a mission field.
With a different Salvation, Gospel, Kingdom role and view of our current reality here on earth, the authentic Christian must either face this problem, or be forced underground once again. What historically characterized the authentic Christian is either now not known, or rejected in contempt.
There is fierce anger that we will face, from both the enemies we've created here and the Wrath of our Righteous God in Heaven. The Judeo-Christian agenda has caused irreversible damage, and sides must now be chosen.
I understand that there are a great number of good, well-meaning people who find great comfort in mainstream churches, with their Bible studies, prayers, pitch-ins. It is, of course, very important to fellowship. But there is something much bigger going on now that demands your attention. There would be no "War on Terror" with its NSA violations, Homeland Security Act, endless false-flag shootings and bombings if it were not for Judeo-Christianity. We have been in the past a gullible, complacent people, but - for the sake of the Kingdom and our progeny - that needs to change. As history reveals that the world turned on the tiny Roman province of Judea nearly 2000 years ago, so will the world turn upon the Judaized Western nations.
In politics, as in religion, men become committed to positions which they will not readily give up and which involve their entire personalities. (Basil Mitchell)
Truly, we have been committed to spreading a kingdom which is not the Kingdom of God. We've invented reasons to disengage ourselves from involvement and responsibility. Two of the biggest inventions is the relatively recent idea that today's Jews comprise Israel today, and that all the current problems will be fixed by our Coming Lord in accordance with Bible prophecy.
The coming kingdom is engineered to enslave us. The criminals behind it have only been enriched by (what the world views as) representatives of the Hebrew God. You can take this to the bank: every single dispensational rapture believer in your congregation and your community will be praying for a real Armageddon leading to a real end of the world, just so they will be delivered from their misery - a misery that has (ironically) resulted from their every day determination to be a Christian!
How do we once again "turn the world upside-down" and once again have dominion in this dark world? How do we answer the often-asked question: "What Now?" Dr. Lawrence Blanchard recently answered these questions far better than anyone I've heard before, and certainly better than I could, in a sermon entitled Kingdom Authority, available here on THEKINGDOMNOW.ORG.
Christianity has always been revolutionary. It brings down earthly governments and forms our lives to be in compliance with Law that transcends what it replaces. If we want victory for the Glory of God, we must be willing to be reject Judaized Christianity and become authentic Christians.
