AMERICA IS THE NEW JEW

by Burt Prelutsky on Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Note: This is a change from 1PM

For thousands of years, the Jew has served the world as its most popular scapegoat. If crops failed, a battle was lost or an economy tanked, tyrants would invariably blame it on the Jews. Adolf Hitler wasn’t the first and he hasn’t been the last. Throughout the Middle East, whatever troubles beset an Arab or Muslim nation, you can bet that the resident kingpins are blaming it on Israel.

But in more recent years, the United States has become a target. When the economy bottomed out under Venezuela, Hugo Chavez blamed the U.S. When Iran has trouble building a nuclear bomb or Syria’s al-Assad has a problem defeating the rebels, they blame us and the Israelis. When the world speaks out against Putin’s attempts to restore the Soviet Empire and the Russian economy finds itself in the toilet, he blames America.

Actually, being blamed by despots for being at the root of their problems is a badge of honor. Our problem is that instead of being led by Moses, as was the case with the Jews, we’ve chosen to saddle ourselves with a leader who far more closely resembles King Herod.

Before people tried to watch Barack Obama deal with Vladimir Putin, they should have been warned – especially children and the faint of heart – that it could be traumatic. I mean, if this administration wasn’t prepared to defend Crimea, we should at least have had weapons on their way to the Ukrainians and those promised missile defense systems on their way to Poland and the Czech Republic the day after the Russkies crossed the border. At the same time, we should have announced that we were reversing our present course and increasing the size of our military, contrary to Obama and Hagel’s earlier plan to gut it.

Because programs generally need a slogan to sell them to the voters, I would have suggested “Billions for Defense, Bubkas for Food Stamps.”

If I didn’t despise Obama for all the things he’s done to America in his attempt to radically transform it, I might feel sorry for him. After all, this is a guy who has coasted through life like a traveling salesman, relying on a smile and a spiel. Suddenly, he has come face to face with the reality that you can’t keep the peace by calling for time-outs with people like Putin and the Ayatollah Khomeini the way you can with Sasha and Malia. Affirmative Action, he has finally discovered, can only carry you so far.

Speaking of frustrating activities, is there anything more pointless than two guys arguing over the existence of God? It seems to me that people should be free to believe or not to believe, as they see fit. Believing in God doesn’t make people good, just as doubting His existence doesn’t make them bad. Among the more prominent atheists, you will find Katherine Hepburn, Jawaharlal Nehru, Marlene Dietrich, Randy Newman, Mark Twain, John Malkovich and Penn & Teller. Among the more prominent believers, you will find Osama bin Laden and a great many Mafia dons.

America, A Christian Nation

by Alan Caruba on Friday, December 20th, 2013

This is article 121 of 135 in the topic History

It is a great regret that arrogant atheists attack Christmas at this time of year and that too many institutions from schools to stores feel intimidated enough to remove mention of it. It is one thing to deny the existence of God, but the attacks are intended to undermine the faith of millions of Americans. The atheists forget or neglect the fact that the pilgrims came here to freely practice their interpretation of Christianity.

It is a habit of mine to revisit the classic literature of the past and, with the advent of Christmas, I picked up an excerpt from Edward Gibbon’s famed “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” that addressed in part the role of Christianity.

Gibbon’s vast knowledge of the Empire eventually filled six volumes. The first three volumes were published in 1776 and became a bestseller. The final three volumes cemented his reputation as a historian.

Gibbon (1737-1794) not only possessed a vast body of knowledge, but also a felicity of prose that enhances the pleasure of reading him. His history of Rome also contained open criticism of organized religion which no doubt evoked a great deal of discussion at the time.

The religion of Rome, however, being polytheistic with many gods could only be called organized insofar as temples to those gods were built wherever it exercised its power. Suffice to say, the then-new religion of Christianity was declared illegal and Christians were widely persecuted.

Initially, the adherents to Christianity were Jews. Gibbon notes that “The first fifteen bishops of Jerusalem were all circumcised Jews; and the congregations over which they presided, united the law of Moses with the doctrine of Christ.” Judaism had been around for a thousand years by that time, but there were a variety of factors that kept it isolated and limited in numbers. It did not actively proselytize and the requirement for circumcision was a deterrent. Judaism also had many restrictions such as dietary laws and requirements that further reduced its attraction for the masses.

All that changed with the advent of Saul of Tarsus, now known as St. Paul, a Jew who experienced an epiphany that threw open the doors to the philosophical and theological basis of Judaism. “Christianity offered itself to the world, armed with the strength of the Mosaic Law and delivered from its fetters,” wrote Gibbon. “The divine authority of Moses and the prophets was admitted, and even established, as the firmest basis of Christianity.”

“The promise of divine favor, instead of being partially confirmed to the posterity of Abraham, was universally proposed to the freeman and the slave, to the Greek and the barbarian, to the Jew and to the Gentile.”

“When the promise of eternal happiness was proposed to mankind, on condition of adopting the faith, and of observing the precepts of the gospel, it is no wonder that so advantageous an offer should have been accepted by great numbers of every religion, of every rank, and of every province in the Roman Empire.”

The Roman Empire had reigned supreme for almost 300 years when Christianity came on the scene and would last another 200 until, in the view of historians; it became too tired to maintain itself.

BOOK REVIEW: The Genesis One Code

by Rev. Austin Miles on Friday, July 26th, 2013

This is article 195 of 240 in the topic Religion

To be let down, especially with planted expectations, is disconcerting as well as disappointing.

New Book Stirs Doubts

Theypublishing@gmail.com (PR Firm)  notified us that their book, The Genesis One Code, spotlights the clash between science and religion on the subject of evolution and The Big Bang. The goal, they state, is to open civil dialogue between the two points of view for a greater understanding of the subject as a whole. In other words, the author, an unbiased scientist, takes no sides.

At last! Seeing science and religion partner to learn from each other respectfully while examining each side’s point of view and statistics is something this writer has hoped for and encouraged for years.  See stories, Do God and Evolution Mix? http://revaustinmiles.com/index.php/more/436 and Did Big Bang Create Us? http://revaustinmiles.com/index.php/more/431

In those stories the point was made that the bullheadedness on the part of theologians and scientists has retarded concise answers of origins from all angles.

The book’s author, Daniel Friedman, states:  “Calculations demonstrate a clear alignment between the times of key events described in the creation narrative in the book of Genesis with those derived from scientific theory and observation. “

The statement about ‘aligning times of the creation with science’ should in itself have waved a red flag. These two, science and religion, would and have faced difficulty trying to blend. Especially with a time line the author bases on: “Human time” or ‘Divine Time.”

News Flash! Human time IS Divine time. Time came into existence by God when He created the earth.

The most absurd reference of all, in order to justify the billion year history of fossil remains, is based on…now get this…“the fossils have their own nuclear clock which verifies their billions of years history,” (page 41) which of course puts it all in perspective.

Author Daniel Friedman writes the book totally from his science point of view, with science being factual and Genesis being questionable. It is all so subtle that one must look carefully to catch it.

He refers to “THIS HISTORY as it unfolded over the span of 3.5 billion years.” as fact. Here’s another FACT: “Radiometric dating HAS SHOWN that the earliest known fossils are more than 3.4 billion years old,”  All of these exercises in judo semantics is an effort to knock out the creation event itself which happened six thousand years ago which in turn knocks out God. All these ‘scientific facts,’ are written as factual..

However, with the timelines written by Moses, Friedman states: “These sources, along with the rest of the oral tradition, ARE THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN TAUGHT to Moses.”  (Page 55) One of many examples sprinkled throughout this book

Friedman refers to interpretation of The Bible’s’ contextual meaning’ based on, “The allegorical meaning,” or “the symbolic meaning.”  But remember, the author is taking no sides but presenting an honest examination of creation. This can be believed as much as the book itself.

Friedman, a Jew, has a good grasp of The Torah, is an incredibly gifted academic who writes well, and…cleverly.

His whole point, it appears, is to discredit God.

America’s Demonic Cry – “Let us alone”

by Rev. Michael Bresciani on Thursday, July 11th, 2013

This is article 191 of 240 in the topic Religion

tn_time-is-short.jpgWell over 40 years of attending to second coming prophecies and what is generally known as eschatological doctrine has brought many lessons and reactions from the public in general. The most common response garnered over the years has been a tendency to be initially fearful and the most common response voiced by hearers is, that it is a message of – ‘gloom and doom.’

The god of this world (Satan) twists all of God’s best things because perversion is the basis for his entire kingdom which is after all, based on lies. (Jn 8: 44)

The fact is that even the most cursory examination of what happens on earth after the triumphant return of the Lord Jesus Christ shows us clearly that it is the best time earth will see in its entire history. The gloom and doom is not brought on by the message or the messengers of the second coming and certainly not by the return of the Savior, but rather it is all contained in the last few years before Christ’s return and is caused by us. Our Godless pursuits leave the world desolate.

Hyper anti-Christian activities on the rise

Our hot pursuit of all that is prurient and deviant has hundreds of examples to illustrate the point – here are just a few of the latest examples of how far we will go to keep them from being interrupted, or questioned.

In Seattle a preacher is attacked by a homosexual crowd, verbally belittled and then beaten by a man who has been arrested for violence more than a dozen times since 1995. The Christians were carrying signs with the message of repentance which read, ‘Repent or else’ and ‘Jesus saves from sin.’ The purely biblical message went beyond merely agitating the gays and produced a violent reaction which is becoming more common in America today than at any other time in our history.

In North Eastern Florida when atheists lost a battle to have the Ten Commandments removed from the Bradford County Courthouse they would not be shunned. Their answer to the perceived insult produced a 1500 pound granite slab to honor their godlessness and place it subjacent to the Ten Commandments. Children with ‘Jesus’ posters outside the unveiling of the granite stone seemed to say more than all the news people and gawking crowd of curious onlookers.

California’s Sonoma State University told student Audrey Jarvis she should remove her cross necklace so she would not offend others. Oddly there has never been a report that anyone was asked to remove a Buddhist symbol, a crescent, a burqa or any other religious symbol on or off campus. Not only is our hypocrisy showing, but the spirit of antichrist is unable to act discreetly anymore. Christianity un-nerves the world for a number of reasons, but at the top of the list is that it says man is sinful and in need of repentance.

From ‘Come over and help us’ to ‘let us alone’ – an American transition

The very cradle of the first century church was Greece and the call to help the Grecians came to the Apostle Paul in a vision.

HuffPo: George W. Obama

by Doug Powers on Friday, June 7th, 2013

This is article 462 of 557 in the topic Media

First “Eric Holder should resign,” and now this?

Et tu Arianna? RT @becketadams: Holy Moses. Never expected to see this happen. twitter.com/BecketAdams/st…

— Chris Hayes’ Bike (@JimmyPrinceton) June 6, 2013

The comparison is unfair — to Bush — but notable as another example of some Obama backlash from the left. On Thursday the New York Times piled on as well. The Times is so upset with the unfulfilled promise of Hope & Change that word is they almost scrapped future plans to publish an endorsement of Obama for a third term.

These past few days we’ve seen two composites: George W. Obama and Obamanixon. Is there a Photoshopper out there willing to take a crack at Richard W. Milhussein Obambush?

Did Hugo Chavez Die a Christian?

by Rev. Austin Miles on Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

This is article 161 of 240 in the topic Religion

Hugo Chavez died today of cancer. While he would not win a popularity contest in America, something happened during his last few weeks that noticeably changed his countenance and even his voice. Was it that his end was evident and he was weak? Or was it something else?

He was known as the Strongman Dictator of Venezuela with expected displays of ruthlessness such as the time he followed President Bush at the U.N. and sniffed around the podium declaring; “The devil must have been here…I can still smell the sulfur.”

As he neared the end, his entire image seemed to change as he began to state that “Jesus is with me,”  during his struggle. This reference became frequent in his conversations carrying with it the tone and language of someone who had become a born-again Christian.

It is entirely possible, and if so, it is a dramatic transformation we can expect to see often in the times ahead in these last days before Christ returns.

There is a general shaking of God’s Creation as foretold in Haggai 2:6-7 as Satan has been given his last hurrah to do what he likes, and to corrupt as many people as he can before the end. This explains the extreme evil we now see taking place, without restraint and for no valid reason; only evil for the sake of evil.

The earth has been hit with extreme climate and disasters that defy explanation. Meteors are zooming closer by with tails of fire and some crashing into the earth. Stories of strange creatures never before seen, causing havoc, are being reported in locations around the nation and the world.

Egypt today is battling a fierce invasion of locusts of biblical proportions exactly as took place in the days of Moses and Pharaoh. And very interesting, following the locust invasion of Ancient Egypt, Jesus came riding in on a donkey to celebrate the Passover. At the very same time this year, as we approach the Passover, Obama has scheduled a trip to Israel but will be coming in on a plane rather than a donkey. But the timing and significance bears curious consideration.

When Pope Benedict announced his resignation as Pope of the Catholic Church, lightening struck the Vatican. When he arrived at where he will temporarily retire, Castle Grandolfo, he was no sooner settled when an earthquake shook that town and region.

And according to prophecy, the next Pope will be the last Pope until Christ returns. Before that, the greatest revival the world has ever known will take place. Then, the judgement.  This writer is not speaking as a prophet, having not been so gifted. but as one living and studying the Bible. It all seems to be falling into place.

Hugo Chavez was 58 years of age, It is reported that he died peacefully.

The Law Of Necessity

by Chuck Baldwin on Thursday, February 28th, 2013

This is article 158 of 240 in the topic Religion

Most of us are taught from childhood to respect and obey the law. On the whole, Americans are law-abiding people. This is only fitting for a nation that was built on the principles of law. Remember, at our core, this is supposed to be a “nation of laws, not men.” This is one reason that our Founding Fathers bequeathed us a republic and not a democracy.

Unfortunately, it has been over one hundred years since America’s teachers (both secular and sacred) have taught the principles of Natural Law. This has created a vast ignorance that has blinded people (especially Christian people it seems) from being able to properly understand, evaluate, and judge the law.

Our Lord plainly said, “The Sabbath (law) was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath (law).” (Mark 2:27 KJV) This was stated in response to the criticism and judgmentalism of the Pharisees against Jesus and His disciples, who had picked and eaten corn on the Sabbath Day.

During that same discussion, Jesus reminded the Pharisees that David and his men ate bread from the Table of Shewbread in the Temple, which was a violation of the Mosaic Law. (Others had been slain by Jehovah for a careless, cavalier attitude toward the Sabbath and the Temple.) He reminded them of the priests who sacrificed animals on the Sabbath Day, which was considered by many to be a violation of Sabbath law. Jesus healed on the Sabbath Day, which the Pharisees and legalists of the time judged to be unlawful.

After a blistering condemnation of the Pharisees, Jesus asked them, “Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life or destroy it?” (Luke 6:9 KJV) In other words, which was more important: doing good and saving life on the Sabbath, or strictly obeying the Law of the Sabbath and letting a man be harmed or even die?

Jesus made it clear that there are greater laws and lesser laws, that the Natural Law of saving life was a superior law to even the Law of the Sabbath. This law of nature can be called “The Law of Necessity.”

In the pursuit of liberty, and in the defense of life, David and his men sustained themselves with the bread from the Table of Shewbread. And not only did Jehovah not slay David and his men for doing this, the Lord Jesus praised them as an example of the greater law principle.

Here’s a question for you: as you walk along a lake, you notice a sign announcing a public statute that says, “No Swimming.” About that same time, you hear the screams of a little boy who had wandered in the lake and is now drowning. Do you obey the State statute that said, “No Swimming,” or do you violate the public law and swim out into the lake to save the little boy?

The Pharisees would say that you must obey the public law even if it means the little boy will drown. Jesus said the natural greater law principle prevails and you ignore the lesser law and go save the drowning lad. The greater law always defers to the provision and protection of human life.

BARNEY FRANK CALLS FOR FINANCIAL CRIMES PROSECUTION — THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK

by Stephen Levine on Friday, December 21st, 2012

This is article 264 of 450 in the topic Government Corruption

If it were not for the fact that Barney Frank is one of the most liberal – and gayest – member of Congress with a sharp tongue, he would be in jail for violating Securities and Exchange Commission rules on promoting false and misleading information; especially when such forward-looking statements lead to hundreds of millions in losses for investors and multiple-billion dollar losses for taxpayers.

Barney Frank, the hypocrite, calls for criminal prosecutions …

December 20, 2012

 

Barney Frank Calls For Financial Crimes Prosecutions

 

Congressman Barney Frank today released a copy of a letter to Administration officials calling for increased prosecution of individuals in the financial industry who have violated the law. In conjunction with the release of the letter Frank released the following statement:

“Officials of the Administration have argued with some basis that instituting criminal proceedings against financial institutions can be destabilizing, and have instead opted for civil proceedings against acknowledged violators of laws that are important for the maintenance of the stability and integrity of our financial system. But these constraints do not apply to prosecution of the individuals who have perpetrated these acts, and this should be vigorously pursued. From the standpoint of deterrence, prosecuting individuals is preferable as this raises few if any questions about institutional stability. Despite the Supreme Court’s conservative majority decision to confer certain human rights on corporations, they are still incapable of acting without human agents, and I cannot conceive of a situation where a corporation is in fact guilty of violating the law where no individuals can and should be held accountable.”

The letter to Attorney General Holder is attached. Letters were also sent to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Chairman Gary Gensler of the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, Chairman Elisse Walter of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Chairman Ben Bernanke of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, and Thomas Curry, Comptroller of the Currency.

What was actually in the letter …

I note several instances recently in which Administration officials have proceeded civilly against blatant violators of our important financial laws, in part because of the difficulty of proving cases beyond a reasonable doubt, especially where the law may have been somewhat uncertain, but also because of a concern that the criminal conviction- and even indictment- of a major financial institution could have a destabilizing effect. This latter consideration does not apply, similarly, to individuals. It is, of course, the case that no corporation can have engaged in wrongdoing without the active decision of individual officers of that entity. I believe it is also the case that prosecuting individuals has more of a deterrent effect than prosecuting corporations.

I am writing to you as well as to financial regulators, understanding that the decision to pursue criminal proceedings rests with the Justice Department, so I ask that there be a series of consultations involving law enforcement officials and regulators with the goal of increasing prosecution of culpable individuals as an important step in seeing that the laws that protect the stability and integrity of our financial system are better observed.

Ballsy, as a hypocrite’s misdirection from the truth that the proximate cause of the mortgage meltdown was the government, specifically the Congress under the influence of House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank and Senate Banking Commission Christopher Dodd.

America’s Future in Prophecy – The Proof, the Promise and the Point of No Return

by Rev. Michael Bresciani on Saturday, August 25th, 2012

This is article 120 of 240 in the topic Religion

coming-RNC-Tampa.jpgSchool bells ring across the nation as students make their Pavlovian responses, cracking open the textbooks that pimp the Darwinian delusion known as the evolutionary model. They are fed on missing links, faulty science and piles of pompous prior philosophic postulation; they are offered no chance to ponder a possible alternative to the pabulum. Their god is the gaseous cloud that luckily came together to create the big bang and their instructors are the high priests of science who teach that evolution goes on forever and needs no resurrection, no creator God and certainly, no redeemer.

Along comes the Bible that proclaims a message diametrically opposite. It warns that nothing in this world or the endless realms of space in which it hangs is going to last forever, but one single thing – the souls of men. Its proof lies in the integrity of the God who proclaims over 275 times that he is the creator of all there is. But where’s the proof for our eyes and our doubting hearts?

Rather than redeeming some city, monument, chapter or era of humanity’s brief narrative, The Almighty speeds to the heart of the matter and resurrects the only thing he has sworn has any eternal value. He pulls his own Son out of the grip of death, presents him whole and charges the witnesses to tell the entire world what they saw, in what is called the gospel.

Sadly, he knows that they will pass by the proof and with the help of their new priests they will squander the life they have been given. All this, for the pipe dream of a gullible Galapagos galloping philosopher posing as a scientist who leaps across eight billion years of guesswork to call the God of truth a liar.

Not seeing the most incredible sign anyone could be given, even without asking for it, Christ was forced to say in a parable, “If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” (Lk 16: 31)

The sign is a larger than life promise that if ignored has eternal consequences for every man, woman and child on earth. It is bigger than religion and all the Godless meanderings of men combined. It is a promise with teeth, etched and drawn in blood. It is a promise that he will pull them all out of the clutches of death and they will stand before him to give account.

The gospel is not subject to the handicapper’s odds or the gambler’s hunch. It dismisses the whining of the atheist and the dopey disputations of the agnostic and arrives at its place of fulfillment quite on time at the second coming of Christ. It is our future with no possible chance of another scenario.

There will be no special star in the heavens and no humble birth in a manger, but a triumphant return that every single living soul will witness. Christ will judge and then rule for 1,000 years before eternity begins.

Rebel, Rebel: Tim Tebow

by Doug Giles on Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

This is article 66 of 240 in the topic Religion

I wonder if the Tebow critics would be as mouthy about his faith if Tim’s name was Achmed and the god he praised after a TD was Allah. I doubt it. Why do I hesitate? Well, it’s principally because Christophobic toads are afraid to turn the verbal guns they use to berate Christians on Muslims, that’s why. Plus, they’d probably go to jail or get fired for “hate speech,” but good Lord, you can certainly rag on Christians, now can’t ‘cha?

Yes, my children, Christians are fair game because the brethren won’t retaliate with an underwear bomb when you rip on them, and ridiculing them won’t get one censored. The harpy head lice know it and thus proceed with their daft quips about Tim’s faith displays. Macho, macho men.

Hey, Tebow critics: Why don’t you lambaste someone else with your unread blog? Y’know, like the air-humping narcissistic players who make parents cover their kids’ eyes every time they make a decent play, huh? Or would doing so be to condemn thyself, soul stroker?

Let me see if I get this straight: A sex worshipping, multi-tattooed thug with three illegit kids from three different women scores a touchdown and then proceeds to simulate a sex act in the end zone-in front of our children and the millions watching by television-and that’s okay? Why sure it is. Who are we to judge? Matter of fact, let’s give that future inmate a Nike ad and bump his contract up a few mil because he brings spice (and crabs) to the game. Ah … sweet progress.

On the other hand, in this evil-is-good and good-is-evil highway to hell culture, Tim Tebow, a model citizen, points toward heaven or bows a Rodin-style knee to Yahweh, and boom … he’s the bad guy. Well, if that’s the way it is in this culture of corruption then I’m supporting the rebel, Tim Tebow. He’s a rebel with a cause. The others are ridiculous without a clue.

Oh, by the way, I thought bullying was banned in this nicey-nice milieu that the progressives have created. Did I miss a class where it is cool to mock the crap out of anyone who wears their faith in Jesus Christ on their sleeve? I must have because these jealous wannabes are going medieval on the Broncos’ QB.

As I sit back and watch the Tebow haters moan online and on air about TT’s commitment to the Five Solas of the Reformation, I’m trying to get what’s left of my mind around Tebow’s crimes against humanity. So far here’s what I have come up with:

  1. Tim believes in Jesus Christ. As do, I believe, um, millions upon millions of other folks. Let me check. Yes, I’m right. Google says there are a bunch of Christians out there.
  2. Tim’s a virgin. You can’t be a virgin anymore in our day, right? Yes, not being a whore in the 21st century is a sin to many like Charlie Sheen. Let me ask the ladies this question: Would you be cool with marrying a handsome, multi-millionaire star quarterback who you know doesn’t have some STD eating his junk? I thought so.
  3. Tim is public with his praise to God …
