Judgment – The Judgment of God or How To Make Friends And Influence People


The Judgment of God
or
How to Make Friends and Influence People

The Covenant News ~ September 22, 2005


    For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.” (Romans 1:18)

“Are you not thirsty?” said the Lion. “I’m dying of thirst,” said Jill. “Then drink,” said the Lion. “May I-could I-would you mind going away while I do?” said Jill. The Lion answered this only by a look and a very low growl. And as Jill gazed at its motionless bulk, she realized that she might as well have asked the whole mountain to move aside for her convenience. The delicious rippling noise of the stream was driving her nearly frantic. “Will you promise not to-do anything to me, if I do come?” said Jill. “I make no promise,” said the Lion. Jill was so thirsty now that, without noticing it, she had come a step nearer. “Do you eat girls?” she said. “I have swallowed up girls and boys, women and men, kings and emperors, cities and realms,” said the Lion. It didn’t say this as if it were boasting, nor as if it were sorry, nor as if it were angry. It just said it “I dare not come and drink,” said Jill. “Then you will die of thirst,” said the Lion. “Oh dear!” said Jill, coming another step nearer. “I suppose I must go and look for another stream then.” “There is no other stream,” said the Lion.

In this dialogue, C. S. Lewis presents Jesus Christ as the Lion, Aslan, in his famed Chronicles of Narnia series. His portrayal of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah is not one that could even remotely be considered “A Tame Lion.” This Lion bids us to come and drink of the waters of salvation freely and yet has no qualms about gobbling up children, adults, kings, cities, or nations. In this, we see the mercy of God that flows from His great love and the judgment of God that is based upon His holiness and demand for justice.

The modern church is more than accommodating to highlight John 4:13,14, “Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” But to proclaim a warning to sinners, backsliders, and carnal Christians to flee from the wrath that is to come is a tad bit old fashion don’t you think? I mean who would dare utter these provocative words from the Apostle Paul, “Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men” (2 Corinthians 5:11). Thus the Church either in ignorance or in disobedience has emphasized God’s love and de-emphasized His judgment. We have highlighted His grace and dimmed the convicting power His law. We have proclaimed from the rooftops His great mercy, but not a whisper of His absolute hatred of sin. Is it any wonder that people refuse to recognize God’s judgment when it is so evident amongst us? This was the wretched condition that the weeping prophet Jeremiah had to contend with. He lamented, “…Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the Lord, nor the judgment of their God.”

Typically, we tend to believe that the attribute of God judging mankind for blatant sin is non-existent in the present era. Divine retribution in the here and now simply does not appear on the screen of many in American Christianity. We either put off the chastening hand of the Lord and confine it to the Old Testament or place it in a futuristic setting in some fanciful version of the dispensational “End Times.” Far too many are convinced the “judgmental” Almighty God of the Old Testament was converted to the loving, merciful, and gracious, Christian God of the New Testament. Most cringe to face the reality that the God of the Bible has destroyed more people than He has saved (Noah’s Flood anyone?).

If there is any talk of judgment, which is minimal, I marvel at people’s perspectives. Some are so indoctrinated in the pop culture, public school, race baiting, governmental blame game that they actually believe President George Bush is responsible for Hurricane Katrina. There are conspiracy theories being floated that President Bush actually blew up the levies to murder as many black people as he could. The Muslims claim its divine intervention from Allah (that‘s convenient, since we are at war with Islamic Terrorists). Christian Zionists and Jews believe it happened because of the Jews being dispersed from Gaza. Others just believe it is another “sign” of the “End Times.” What is strangely missing from all these speculations? The same thing that is missing from the entire American culture and that is personal responsibility. None of these views take into account that these string of natural disasters, terrorism, and the like could be based upon the merits of our own sin.

For years Operation Rescue/Operation Save America has warned that there are two particular sins that once they reach heaven bring cataclysmic judgments upon any nation that practices them. They are child-killing, otherwise known as abortion, and homosexual, sodomy. America for years have celebrated these abominations and turned these moral wrongs into legal rights. God has been patient and has exercised much long-suffering as we have paraded our sin like Sodom. His goodness towards us, however, was not a sign of His approval, but His desire to see us repent of this great wickedness and return to being “One Nation Under God.”

In fact, just recently when I caught up with Flip Benham down in Mississippi to help with the relief effort there, he reminded me about our Walk Across America. He asked me about the date our walk ended at the White House in Washington DC. I said, “August 28th, 2004.” He then asked me the date Hurricane Katrina started to bear in upon New Orleans. It was August 28th, 2005. One year to the day.

For over six months the Walk Across America team warned America to turn from our wicked ways of abortion, sodomy, and idolatry, lest God bring His judgment upon us. We were laughed at, jailed a few times, people threw garbage at us, one man pulled a gun on brother Flip, and many other instances were recorded in the annuls of heaven of America rejecting God’s word and warning. Regardless, we faithfully delivered God’s mail and I left for home while Flip left to visit another city. He was there to confront a sodomite lust-fest. It was called “Southern Decadence” and the city that proudly hosted it was New Orleans. Brother Flip joined with Pastor Bill Shanks from New Orleans. For years Pastor Bill had warned the city on the local news that if New Orleans did not repent of abortion, celebrating sodomy, and debauchery that God was going to send a hurricane and flood the city. Not only did they not take heed to the warning, but the Bourbon St. Businessmen’s Association banned the Gospel witness in 2004. This Year, God Banned business on Bourbon St., canceled Southern Decadence, and there are no abortion mills operating either.

Whether we like it or not or believe it or not, there comes a time in every nation when sin and Satan have such a stronghold and are so entrenched in a culture that only the judgment of God can extract its poison from our midst. There comes a time when people become so desensitized to evil and so accommodating to perversion that God’s hammer must fall to awaken our dead, defiled consciences. Jesus declared,

    “But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children. Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not: Woe unto thee…” (Matthew 11:16-21)

Notice the root cause of Jesus pronouncing His woe and judgment upon cities. They lost the ability to correctly respond to God. People throughout America seek to respond to God, but is it right in light of the wicked condition of our nation. We kill babies, we allow the sodomizing of our sons and daughters, we spread pornographic filth, we legitimize Islam, and disparage Christianity. Our Lord has mourned over our lost condition and we have not lamented nor repented. He has called to us, His wayward children to return, and we have turned our backs on Him. He has demanded we stop killing His children and repent of the sin of shedding innocent blood and we continue to turn a dear ear and a blind eye to the injustice of the American Holocaust.

In Leviticus 18, God lists the particular sins that would bring about His visitation of punishment upon the land. In fact, He declared that the land itself would rise up and rebel to vomit out its inhabitants that would dare to practice sexual immorality and baby-murder. How many have been displaced (vomited out) due to Katrina? Here is the entire text,

    “And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the Lord your God. After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances. Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the Lord your God. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the Lord. None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the Lord. The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. The nakedness of thy father’s wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father’s nakedness. The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover. The nakedness of thy son’s daughter, or of thy daughter’s daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is thine own nakedness. The nakedness of thy father’s wife’s daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s sister: she is thy father’s near kinswoman. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister: for she is thy mother’s near kinswoman. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter in law: she is thy son’s wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother’s wife: it is thy brother’s nakedness. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son’s daughter, or her daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness. Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time. Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness. Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour’s wife, to defile thyself with her. And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord. Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.” Leviticus 18:1-25

Brethren, if we do not see this as the judgment of God who will break, humble themselves, cry out, and repent? All we hear is, “America is a great nation, New Orleans is a vibrant city, we will rebuild!” Do we honestly think this is the proper response? Do we actually believe God sent His judgment upon us to rebuild the same city that invoked His wrath in the first place? The message from heaven is not rebuild, it is repent. Pastor Flip Benham addressed this vital issue in his teaching on Katrina. Please take heed to his words.

    “Unfortunately for us we are looking to rebuild rather than to repent. It was the same in Isaiah’s time. God’s people were rich, secure, and very religious. They were always in church praying, praising, preaching, and tithing, but God said their hands were full of blood (Isaiah 1:15). They were killing their children (child sacrifice) and praising God at the same time. This He will never tolerate. Never! The people thought things were just fine between them and God because He had not judged them (in reality He had given them several remedial judgments to turn them to Himself but they did not see them). So when disaster came, they simply sounded the tune, “let us rebuild!” Sound familiar?

    The Lord has sent a message against Jacob; it will fall on Israel. All the people will know it – Ephraim and the inhabitants of Samaria – who say with pride and arrogance of heart, “The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with dressed stone; the fig trees have felled, but we will replace them with cedars.” But the Lord has strengthened Rezin’s foes against them.” Isaiah 9: 8-11. This is what God thinks of rebuilding rather than repenting. He will stiffen the judgment. Why? Because He loves us. His judgments will continue their relentless mission until there is true repentance.

    Why wouldn’t the people repent before God rather than trying to rebuild what the judgments of God had brought down? “But the people have not returned to Him who struck them, nor have they sought the Lord Almighty…those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray.” Isaiah 9:13-16. It is crystal clear here that God was the One who struck them. He was the One who was disciplining them. Their prophets were not telling the truth about God and about His judgments. The people did not know to repent because the prophets were proclaiming the message “we will rebuild” rather than, “we must repent.”

God’s Church has responded splendidly to come to the aid of the brothers and sisters caught in the judgment of hurricane Katrina. God is looking to cleanse us all. He has been very merciful and patient with us desiring us to repent and return to Him. The question remains, will the prophets of God, who have the ear of this nation, call us to national repentance over the shedding of innocent blood (abortion) or will we arrogantly try to rebuild that which God has brought down?”

This is the burning issue now that God is calling our nation to account. God told Jeremiah, “Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.” (Jeremiah 1:9,10). There is much evil, wickedness, idolatry, and sin that must be rooted up, pulled down, destroyed, and thrown down in our own lives, communities, and nation before we arrogantly dare think to build and to plant. And if the time does come we are allowed to rebuild, I’ll leave you with this admonishment from the Apostle Paul, “According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

Culture of Death – Terri Schiavo and the Culture of Death


Terri Schiavo
and the Culture of Death


By Rusty Lee Thomas


The Covenant News ~ March 27, 2005


    “But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul:
    all they that hate me love death.”
    (Proverbs 8:36)

America as of late has been inundated with a steady dose of death. Innocent blood is flowing unabated throughout our nation. It appears that the American dream of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness is hemorrhaging and becoming a nightmare right before our very eyes. The nightly news lists the litany of woe and murderous rampages that are savaging our land. “Four dead in Dallas,” “Four dead in Atlanta,” “Ten dead in Minnesota,” “Nine year old girl strangled in Florida” and on and on the headlines churn out the grisly details of America’s illicit love affair with death.

Our churches, schools, streets, and workplaces are not exempt from the carnage and have become targets for homegrown terrorists. America, it seems, has sowed to the wind and we are now reaping the whirlwind. As the prophet Jeremiah lamented, “Death is come up into our windows, and is entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from without, and the young men from the streets (Jeremiah 9:21).”

The culture of death has been steadily marching in this nation since the infamous Roe vs. Wade Decision in 1973. It has become a juggernaut that slays the pre-born, seeks to euthanize the old, and kill off the disabled. In the case of Terri Schiavo, it seeks yet another prey. For over thirty- two years we have taught an entire generation through the practice of abortion that if you can’t exercise personal responsibility, then kill the “problem.” Now we stand in awkward amazement that our society has learned its lesson with a vengeance.

In the midst of this highly publicized and virulent case of Terri Schiavo, certain vital issues have emerged that may well mark a paradigm shift that will impact our future. Through the suffering and intentional starvation of this precious woman, America’s soul that has been deceived and enticed by the culture of death, may be showing signs of an “awakening.” The spell that has been cast over us for decades may be in the midst of going the way of all tyrannies that reject God, abandon His law, and devalue human life. Eventually, it will collapse under the weight of its own sins and crimes.

As hearts break, tempers flare, tears flow, prayers are uttered and pundits speak, the battle lines over life and death, truth and lies, and good and evil are being drawn. A vivid picture and a living parable is being displayed before the world’s stage. Terri’s plight is exposing the competing philosophies, worldviews, and politics that vie for the souls of men, the lives of our children, and the future of our beleaguered nation.

On one side you have those who hold to a secular worldview. Typically, they are the ones that demand, like Michael Schiavo, the death of Terri. The philosophy that underpins this godless worldview is called “quality of life.” In the abortion industry, it would translate “every child a wanted child.” The value of human life, according to this system of belief, is based upon one’s usefulness, productivity, or being wanted in this self-indulgent world of ours.

It was this worldview that ran rampant in Nazi Germany and is a fixed tenant in the philosophy of Eugenics. It is this philosophy that promotes the “Master Race” mentality. It views the world as a place with limited resources that are to be reserved for the elite, strong, and beautiful people of the world. Therefore, the less fortunate, the unfit, the downtrodden, certain minorities, and other outcasts need not apply. They have an obligation not to take up much space or use up precious resources. If these classes of “sub-humans” persist, however, to proliferate and prove a nuisance to our selfishness, greed, and lust, there are ways to handle these unnecessary burdens. Sometimes it is called the “Final Solution, “ and other times, its called abortion or euthanasia.

Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, was greatly influenced by this particular philosophy. The following are just a sample of quotes that inspire her infamous organization to this day. “The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” “Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.” “The unbalance between the birth rate of the ‘unfit’ and the ‘fit,’ [is] the greatest present menace to civilization… the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.” “Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying… a dead weight of human waste… an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.” “[Our objective is] unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of unwanted children…”

In Nazi Germany, terms like “useless eaters” carried the culture of death to a horrible new low in the bloody history of man. Hitler started with abortion and then swiftly moved to eliminate disabled persons. About 150,000 Germans who were crippled or mentally ill were murdered. They were considered “life not worthy of life.” Sounds strangely familiar, Terri Schiavo anyone? The madness continued to a full blown racial genocide that systematically murdered six million Jews, three million Poles, four hundred thousand Gypsies, etc. It took an entire world at war to end Hitler’s reign of terror. What will be the rising costs today as segments of America are becoming more and more infected with this same deadly philosophy?

Ideas have consequences and a belief system will lead us somewhere. The belief that the pre-born, the elderly, and the handicapped have only value and worth based upon their utility or usefulness is producing a fire in the minds of men hell bent on killing innocent people. Thus what has been Biblically and historically considered unlawful magically becomes “legal” in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Over against these vain philosophies of men, stands the time-honored worldview of life which is called the “sacredness of life.” It is this view that enshrined for Americans our first and most fundamental right, the Right To Life and all the subsequent blessings of liberty. Every human being has intrinsic value for we are made in the image of God. Beyond this common grace, the Savior of the world (Jesus Christ) shed His precious blood to conquer death, hell, and the grave on the behalf of the crown of His creation, mankind. Thus man has worth not based upon what he does or how he performs, but based upon who we are in relationship to our Creator. It is this understanding of life that inspired portions of the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson wrote, “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” It is this understanding of the nature of life that also compelled President Bush to declare that pre-born children should be “welcomed in life and protected by law.”

By quoting from one of our founding documents and founding father, Thomas Jefferson, it naturally raises the next crucial issue surrounding the plight of Terri Schiavo. And that is, what is the role of government as this woman deteriorates? There are many from all political persuasions that believe government has no role whatsoever in Terri’s case. It is a “private” affair that government need not meddle with. Isn’t it strange how much the culture of death has grown under the banner of “privacy?” Abortion is a “private” decision. Sodomy is a “private” decision between consenting adults, and now starving a vulnerable woman to death based on the hearsay of one man is a “private” decision. It may start out “private,” but it ends up public with horrific consequences. Jesus would call those who use the Constitution to legitimize its evil as blind guides who strain at gnats and swallow camels (Matthew 23:24).”

Thomas Jefferson made this statement about the role of civil government. Pay close attention to his words. He stated, “The care of human life and not its destruction is the one and only object of good government.”

Hubert Humphrey, in recent years, echoed the same mentality concerning the role of civil government. On November 1st, 1977 he stated, “The moral test of a government is how that government treats those who are at the dawn of life — the children; the twilight of life — the elderly; the shadows of life — the sick, the needy, the handicapped.”

Currently, the sitting President, George W. Bush declared, “We will defend the rights of the aged. We will defend the rights of the infirm. We will defend the rights of the unborn.”

What do these quotes from civil leaders that cover the spectrum of history and politics in America have in common? They all had a Biblical worldview concerning the role of civil government. Biblically, the main function of civil government is to protect life and to stop the shedding of innocent blood. Civil government is to carry a “sword” to punish evildoers (as God Almighty defines evil) and protect those who are good in God’s sight (as God defines good.) With the advancement of abortion, sodomy, and now the execution through starvation of Terri Schiavo, the civil government of America continues to betray its sacred trust and deny the very purpose of their existence.

Because our civil government rejects their Biblical and historical role, Americans are being taxed to death to support a civil government that is out of control. They have their laws, rules, regulations, and influences in places they have no business or jurisdiction. They are supposed to carry a sword to defend the weak, vulnerable, oppressed, and victims of crimes. They are not to carry a teacher’s ruler nor a spoon to feed the poor. These aspects of life are to be left to the public sector, families, and churches. Thus, the one area where they are supposed to be, they are missing in action. On the other hand, they intrude where they need not be and have become a bureaucratic blob that is suffocating the life’s support system of liberty that is to sustain the United States of America.

The culture of death has flourished for two primary reasons. The silent consent of the church and the misuse of our courts. Perhaps, the plight of Terri Schiavo will finally build some backbone into our Executive and Legislative branches of government once again. They need to arise and place the “Constitutional Chains” back on the tyrannical courts of our day. For decades, judges in black robes have ignored the Constitution, thwarted the will of the people, and pretended the other branches of government did not even exist. They have made a mockery of our Representative Republic. They have become an Oligarchy that has unleashed a torrent of bloodshed and perversion that is drowning us in a sea of perdition. Their reign of terror must end or America will continue down the primrose path to ruin!

Perhaps, also through this travesty, the Church will once again reassert herself in the market place of ideas. We can no longer afford to be ashamed of God’s word nor the Christian worldview that has served us so well in our country’s history. It was this godly legacy that gave us the freest, most prosperous, and blessed nation upon the face of the earth. Church, we must find our voice once again and return to provide the moral guidance our nation desperately needs. We must come out of the caves of our church buildings and reawaken the conscience of a nation that has been taken captive by the culture of death. This stranglehold must be broken if we are to pass on the blessing of life and liberty to future generations. And if Terri Schiavo dies, let us make sure she does not die in vain, but let the culture of death die with her.

I’ll end this article with a quote from the great theologian A. A. Hodge. He stated,

    “The Kingdom of Christ is one, and cannot be divided in life or death. If the Church languishes, the State cannot be in health; and if the State rebels against its Lord and King, the Church cannot enjoy His favour. If the Holy Ghost is withdrawn from the Church, He is not present in the State; and if He, the only “Lord, the Giver of Life,” be absent, then all order is impossible, and the elements of society lapse backward to primeval night and chaos…I charge you, citizens of the United States, afloat on your wide sea of politics, THERE IS ANOTHER KING, ONE JESUS: THE SAFETY OF THE STATE CAN BE SECURED ONLY IN THE WAY OF HUMBLE AND WHOLE-SOULED LOYALTY TO HIS PERSON AND OF OBEDIENCE TO HIS LAW.” (Evangelical Theology pp.246-248).

Guilty As Sin

Scott Peterson’s guilt is America’s guilt


Waco, TX., Nov., 12 /Covenant News Wire Service/ — The verdict is in. Scott Peterson was found guilty today of the double murders of his wife, Laci, and his unborn son, Connor. The double homicide conviction should give America pause to consider the apparent Schizophrenic nature of law as practiced in the U.S. and our view of the unborn child in the womb.

Every day thousands of women march into abortion mills like our local Planned Parenthood and commit the same act Scott Peterson was found guilty of. How can justice demand his guilt and yet turn a blind eye when it comes to those who are guilty of the same act? We can’t have it both ways. Either the baby is not a person protected by law or it is person protected by law. Either people should be punished for harming an unborn baby or they should be free to harm as many as they wish with impunity.

It is not only Pro-life Christians who see the double standard dilemma presented here in this case. Pro-abortion groups, like the Morris County NOW organization were up in arms and voiced strong opposition to the initial double murder charge. Their President, Mavra Stark, rightly stated, “If this is murder, well, then any time a late-term fetus is aborted, they could call it murder.” Indeed, but the same could be said of first and second trimester abortions as well.

Scott Peterson’s guilt is America’s guilt. It reveals the tragic flaw of America repeating the dark history of denying personhood to human beings made in the image of God. The past records in bloody detail what happens when this takes place. Laws that once protected human life were removed by judicial fiat or raw political or military force. As a result, the vulnerable and weak became a prey to injustice bent on their extinction or enslavement. This was true with Nazi Germany who denied the personhood of Jews in Hitler’s death camps. It is also true when it comes to American slavery that denied our black brothers and sisters were fully human.

This verdict also points out the glaring discrepancy when it comes to the nature of law. It exposes the lack of a singular standard as the basis of law. It points out the inconsistency, the hypocrisy, and the schizophrenia that has made a mockery to the concepts of law, justice, and civil government. Law in America has become a Rubik’s Cube that we twist and turn to further our political agendas. It is no longer a fixed standard that secures justice for all.

Racism and Murder


Why you should oppose Planned Parenthood!


WACO, TX., Oct. 14/Covenant News Wire Service/ — The media in Waco, TX., for the most part, has had a field day fawning over the so-called “accomplishments” concerning Planned Parenthood’s 65th year anniversary in Waco. Strangely missing are the three “achievements” listed in the article below. All the good that Planned Parenthood may perform, is merely a front for untold evil that has consumed and destroyed 1/3rd of an entire generation. They murder unborn babies in the womb and seduce children into the pagan sexual philosophy to ensure their bloody business will continue to prosper. And no wonder for Satan, himself, comes as an angel of light and his ministers come as ministers of righteousness (2 Corinthians 11:14). It is called deception and most of our civil leaders, media pundits, and our culture have bought into it hook, line, and sinker. May a dose of truth awaken us from the deadly spell that has been cast over us by the merchants of death and immorality.

  • Planned Parenthood is the nation’s leading advocate and provider of abortion. Either directly or indirectly, through their pagan sexual philosophy and abortion practice, 1/3rd of entire generation 31 years old and younger have been murdered in their mother’s womb. Since 1973, upwards of 45 million unborn babies made in the image of God have been destroyed and their innocent blood shed by the sin and crime of abortion. This deadly legacy serves as an everlasting memorial to commemorate Planned Parenthood’s culture of death. Every Wednesday Planned Parenthood at 1927 Columbus Ave. in Waco adds to this ignoble number.
  • The roots of abortion and the history of Planned Parenthood is one of racism. It is a racism of the most maniacal and sinister kind. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, in a letter to Clarence Gamble in 1939 wrote, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through religions appeal. We don’t want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Did her conspiracy work? Judge for yourself. According to BlackGenocide.org today, more black children are murdered by abortion than are born. Since 1973, over twice as many African-Americans have died from abortion than from AIDS, accidents, violent crime, cancer, and heart disease combined. Over 12,000 of 17,000 aborted babies found in one California dumpster were black. 78% of Planned Parenthood facilities are located in minority neighborhoods (Kate Ross Apts., anyone?) 4 Billion dollars (your tax money) has been paid to the abortion industry in order to slaughter black children in their mother’s wombs. Every week “legal” abortion kills twice as many black people than the Ku Klux Klan has killed in its entire history.

To this day, Planned Parenthood has never disavowed or recanted of Margaret Sanger’s openly racist agenda. In fact, Planned Parenthood hands out a Margaret Sanger Award to their brightest and best in the abortion industry. Dr. Alan Guttmacher, a past president of Planned Parenthood, clearly stated, “We are merely walking down the path that Mrs. Sanger carved out for us.” For more documentation go to www.KlanParenthood.com

  • There is overwhelming evidence that Planned Parenthood has for years provided safe cover for sexual predators and pedophiles. Documentation (www.ldi.org or www.childpredators.com) has now emerged that reveals Planned Parenthood was caught red-handed providing a safe haven for grown men who prey upon and sexually abuse our young daughters. Life Dynamics, a Texas based research group, conducted a recent covert survey. A young woman who posed as a 13 year old child sought to use abortion to conceal her illicit and illegal sexual activity with an older man.

She called over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across America. The results of this survey are absolutely appalling. The vast majority of these facilities agreed to conceal the crime even among those who acknowledged it was statutory rape. Some Planned Parenthood employees coached the caller on how to avoid detection, how to circumvent parental notification law and what to say or not to say when she came to the clinic. Many encouraged her to lie, conceal her age and the age of her predator, or to just give false names.

All these phone calls were recorded and demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt that Planned Parenthood is either complicit or complacent when it comes to the rape and sexual abuse of our children.

A WORD TO PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS

Obviously, this article raises disturbing allegations against Planned Parenthood. If this article contains misinformation, slander, or libel then Planned Parenthood should pursue a lawsuit. Don’t hold your breath, however, to see that reported in the news. Even, the mighty Planned Parenthood cannot defend the indefensible.

For far too long Planned Parenthood has cast a deceptive spell over our nation and the city of Waco. They present themselves as a benevolent organization compassionately concerned about women’s rights and their health care. Behind that shiny veneer, however, a more malevolent organization cannot be found. It is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The lives and souls this wolf has devoured is beyond comprehension. Therefore, it is imperative that this wolf not have access to your children. It is in the best interest and welfare of your children to never, under any circumstances, to have any contact with Planned Parenthood whatsoever. Protect your children!

Homosexual Heresies — Homosexual Heresies


Homosexual Heresies


By Rusty Lee Thomas


The Covenant News ~ October 2, 2004


    “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)

A doctrine of demons is being promoted
by the homosexual, heretical “church.”

The Bible, contrary to popular culture, establishes crucial distinctions between that which is evil and that which is good and that which is true and that which is false. Most churches, even conservative Evangelical churches, refuse to highlight those Biblical distinctions today. The trend is unity at all cost. Truth can be sacrificed for the “greater good” of getting along to go along. It has the appearance of God’s love externally, but inwardly it allows a wolf in sheep’s clothing to devour the souls of men.

The Bible also warns against the practice of heresy. The Apostle Peter states, “…somethings hard to understand, (Paul’s writings) which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do the rest of the Scriptures.” (2 Peter 2:16b) And no wonder, Satan himself quotes the Scriptures, out of context, of course, to mask his evil and to deceive men unto perdition (Matthew 4:1-11). This is what we observed at the Metropolitan Community Church meeting in Charlotte, NC, as it relates to homosexuality.

The premise of the MCC meeting was to examine what the Bible “really” teaches about homosexuality. It was an attempt to give a “Biblical” defense for the abominable practice of sodomy. They advocated the dangerous position that homosexuality is not a sin, nor a sickness, but a lifestyle to be fully embraced and celebrated as children of God. On their thesis paper, the MCC mission statement was clearly articulated by their three C’s of Calling, Confronting, and Creating. “Calling people to new life through the liberating Gospel of Jesus Christ…Confronting the injustice of poverty, sexism, racism, and homophobia through Christian social action…Creating a community of healing and reconciliation through faith, hope, and love.” Enough Christian terminology to ensnare unsuspecting souls and enough deception to damn all that adhere to this vision statement from hell.

The MCC views the current Christian attitude that condemns sodomy as springing from centuries of tradition as opposed to the clear teaching of Scripture. They promote the slanderous concepts that the orthodox Christian Church demands women to be enslaved by men, discrimination against people of color and the condemnation of homosexuals. The good news, as far as they are concerned, is that MCC has arisen with unprecedented might to right these wrongs, to bring justice against this injustice, and to end discrimination in all its ugly forms. After all, gay men and lesbians need to be accepted and their lifestyle affirmed by the Christian Church. Right? Wrong! Two of the three issues addressed are non-issues, because the true Church doesn’t advocate these preposterous practices. As far as the condemnation of homosexuality is concerned, that does not spring from fallible men in history, but from the infallible, inerrant, and inspired word of God.

Under the heading that “New Information Refutes Old Ideas,” they claim homosexuals can find better ways to interpret the Scriptures. What are these new grids that can help homosexuals find justification to excuse their perverted behavior? New scientific information, social changes, and personal experience will fit the bill. They are now the new authoritative filters that can determine the true meaning of Scripture. Notice, however, that all three reject the authority of the Scriptures themselves. Thus the homosexuals have stumbled upon the trend that has been taking place for over two hundred years, which is: personal experience, cultural changes, and science determine the meaning of Scriptures. In other words, the Bible must submit and its meaning changed to accommodate our societal evolutions. In fact, when we pressed the sodomite “pastor” on this very point, he admitted that his opinion trumped the authority of Scripture. This places him and every other human being that follows this deadly course in the precarious position as standing as judge over God and His Scriptures. According to pro-gay theology, they are now the Potter and the God of Scriptures is the clay, very dangerous indeed.

It was Hilary of Poitiers, 300-367 A.D. who gave this insightful quote that pinpoints the deceptive, homosexual heresies that we are contending with today. Hilary states, “Such is their error, such their pestilent teaching; to support it they borrow the words of Scripture, perverting its meaning and using the ignorance of men as their opportunity of gaining credence for their lies.” This borrowing of the Scriptures and the willful ignorance of men were in abundant supply at that fateful meeting in Charlotte. The mere use of Scriptures, however, does not guarantee the right use of Scriptures. This I hope to clarify as we examine the Scriptures they twisted in order to call good, evil and evil, good.

The sodomite “pastor” in his introduction presented two important theological terms that can determine true and false meanings when studying the Scriptures. The first one was isogesis and the second was exegesis. Exegesis basically means “the process of interpreting the Bible.” The specific techniques employed in the exegesis of Scripture are usually referred to as “hermeneutics.” Exegesis is to draw out, extracting what is in the text the way it was written. Finding the true meaning and explain the passages of Scripture from their context. In other words, Scripture is to interpret Scripture. We must be careful, however, not to set one passage of Scripture against another passage. Each text must be understood in the light of its immediate context and in the context of the whole of Scripture.

Isogesis refers to reading into a text what isn’t there. Interpreting it by different rules than a consistent understanding from the Bible. Using a presupposition to arrive at the meaning, by ignoring the language and culture it was used in. Isogesis promotes what is known as proof texting. This occurs when one comes to the Scriptures with a preconceived concept and then tries to twist the Scriptures to support one’s erroneous ideas. The “pastor” then proceeded with great vigor to isogete and proof text the Scriptures to “find” what isn’t there in support of homosexuality.

During his presentation, the “pastor” came up with an hypothetical situation. He asked me personally that if I had to choose between the law and the prophets of the Old Testament, the words of Jesus in the New Testament, or the apostolic epistles in the New Testament, which one would I choose to be the ultimate authority of Scripture? He was seeking to bait me into saying “the words of Jesus.” My response was, that it is an invalid choice for “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”(2 Tim. 3:16)

His purpose was to exalt the words of our Lord as superior to the rest of the word of God for the simple reason that Jesus Christ never mentioned homosexuality in the Gospels. Whereas both the Old Testament law and prophets and the apostolic epistles, outright condemn its practice. Inadvertently, by taking this approach, he was admitting the Old Testament and the epistles uphold the truth that homosexuality is a sin that must be repented of. Sadly, he then went on to contradict his own argument by disputing those same Scriptures. He cannot have it both ways.

The only way Biblically for the words of Jesus to be considered superior, is if they indeed change or make obsolete precepts of God in the Old Testament. On the other hand, they should not be considered superior, if they affirm or allow the teachings of the Old Testament to pass through the cross unaltered. The homosexual “church” to rightly use this argument must find in the words of Jesus a passage that countermands the Old Testament abhorrence to homosexuality. Jesus would have to say, in effect, that which was spoken in times past against homosexuality is no longer binding today. “I, the Lord, remove its prohibition and demand its practice to be accepted and enjoyed.” The Lord would have had to curtail the writings of the Apostle Paul as well to make sure he didn’t denounce homosexuality in his epistles. Obviously, our Lord never rescinded the teaching in the Old Testament nor muzzled the Apostle Paul in the New. Therefore the truth stands and they cannot make straight what God has called crooked.

Besides, Jesus was silent on the sexual sins of incest and bestiality. According to their convoluted interpretation, these wicked practices need to flourish today under the blessings of Jesus Christ as well. BLASPHEMY in the highest order!!! When our Lord did speak indirectly on this subject, He upheld the creative order that was established in the book of Genesis, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh” (Mark 10:7-9). Notice Jesus just affirms one man and one woman becoming one flesh, not a man joining to another man, nor a woman cleaving to another women to become one flesh.

The Scriptures twisted at this meeting were the account of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19:1-25, Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13, Romans 1:24-27, 1 Corinthians 6:9, and 1 Timothy 1:10. Every Christian needs to know these Scriptures by heart. They are the passages under assault by the same one who whispered long ago, “Has God indeed said?” (Genesis 3:1) According to Sodomite theology, the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah that invoked God’s judgment upon them was not homosexuality, but the breaking of the law of hospitality. That’s right, the reason that God reduced those cities to ashes was the gross violation of not receiving the angels according to the ancient hospitality rules.

Two immediate errors must be addressed. First, Lot as a representative of Sodom did welcome them and showed them hospitality. So where is the violation? The second contradiction centers on the Hebrew word yadah, which is translated as know. The men, both young and old, desired to know the angelic visitors. The MCC interprets this word to know as simply a desire to “have a thorough knowledge of.” The men’s intentions, according to MCC, was to just check on the angel’s credentials. MCC does admit the word know can also imply sexual intercourse, but only on the rarest occasions. And even if that is the case here, the sin would not be homosexuality, but gang rape. We see this same mentality today when it comes to the abuse of young boys by both Catholic and Protestant clergy. The offense is not portrayed as homosexuality, but pedophilia. If it was the former, which the men of Sodom just wanted to familiarize themselves with the visitors, why offer Lot’s daughters? Did they not know Lot and his family?

MCC then “reveals” the real sin of Sodom by quoting Ezekiel 16:49,50. “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.” MCC correctly sees some of the problems associated with Sodom. They were a people, like many today in America who had an abundance, were materialistic in their worldview, proud, and failed to care for those who were less fortunate. MCC will also admit Sodom was inundated with the plague of idolatry. What they fail to see is this pathetic condition leads to the seed bed and creates the atmosphere that is conducive to grow the weeds of lustful, sinful behavior, such as homosexuality.

Plus, we still have to deal with the fact that God declared in the Ezekiel passage that Sodom committed an abomination before Him. What abomination is the Lord speaking of? Jude 7 gives us a clue, “As Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” Is not America materialistic, has not greed become a virtue, has she not turned her back upon the Lord Jesus Christ publicly and assimilated the idols and false religions of pagan lands? Are we not seeing the proliferation of sexual immorality and homosexuality as a result?

In fact, even the pagan Greek philosopher, Aristotle, agrees with this Biblical and historical pattern. Aristotle, commenting on injustice in his book called “The Art of Rhetoric” stated, “Rather it is the property of the poor to have an appetite for money because of their lack of it, and of the wealthy, because of their riches, to have an appetite for unnecessary pleasures.” Notice that Aristotle makes a connection between materialistic wealth, divorced from God’s purposes, produces a people who will pursue unnecessary, and I would add sinful, lustful pleasures. In this, the old adage is fulfilled, “idle hands and an idle mind are the Devil’s workshop.”

The next Scripture addressed was Lev.18:22. This one was a doozy. That may not be proper English, but oh, the incredible theological gymnastics performed on this passage. The text clearly reads, “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.” The “pastor” offered some nonsensical spin relating this clear condemnation of homosexuality to Israel’s dietary laws. Upon further reading of MCC’s materials on this Scripture, they bypass the plain prohibition by regulating it to the Holiness Code of Leviticus. In their minds (and that is the only place where you can find this) this was only assigned to the priesthood in Israel’s ritual manual. The prohibition is not against homosexual sex itself, according to MCC, but a prohibition against male cult prostitution. In other words, God blesses homosexual sex in His church, but God help you if you have homosexual sex under the banner of idolatry and false religion. The “pastor” went behind his chalk board to illustrate this novel “revelation.” When he was in front of the chalk board in “church,” homosexuality is not an abomination. When he went behind the chalk board illustrating having sex with a male prostitute then that practice is an abomination to God.

At this point, Flip Benham rebuked the “pastor” for his overt attempt to isogete the Scripture. He reminded them that there was nothing in the text that even hinted that this declaration was regulated solely for the priesthood in Israel. Neither had it anything to do with dietary or ceremonial law. The entire text was addressed to the children of Israel to teach them what God considers immoral sexual activity that would be punished if they committed the acts (Lev. 18:1,2). The “congregation” became agitated at this point and one desperate homosexual man attempted to give his illuminated opinion on this passage. He explained that the prohibition against homosexual sex at that point in Israel’s history had to do with the fact that Israel was a fledgling nation. God knew He needed Israel to be only heterosexual at that critical juncture, so they can procreate to build up the nation. Once the nation had gained enough population, God magically changed His mind and now homosexuality is permissible. No comment necessary!

The next passage molested by MCC was Rom. 1:24-27, which states, “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

MCC correctly recognizes the Apostle Paul as the only New Testament writer that has “negative statements” regarding same-sex acts. The “negative statements” must be understood, however, in the MCC broader perspective. Does this passage refer to all homosexual acts or is it just certain homosexual acts reminiscent of the male prostitute idolatry of the Old Testament? I’m sure you know where the MCC stands on this issue. The key for them, in this passage, centers on the word natural. When the Apostle mentions women who “change the natural use” or men “leaving the natural use,” MCC believes this should imply actions that contradict one’s own nature. For instance, if a heterosexual performed homosexual acts that would be against his nature and therefore sinful. If however, a homosexual would attempt to live a heterosexual lifestyle that would be against his nature and therefore sinful as well.

It is this Scripture probably more than any other that drives the homosexual agenda to turn to junk science and psycho-babble. They must find the missing link, the homosexual gene, and any evidence whatsoever that proves it’s God’s fault for making them this way; some proof that they are not responsible for their behavior and destructive choices; some documentation that promotes the idea that homosexuality is an inherent trait, like being black or left handed; and some new journal that demonstrates once and for all that homosexuality is impossible to change.

The only thing about homosexuality that is inherent, however, is the sinful nature every human being has received because of the fall of Adam and the subsequent advent of original sin. Homosexuality is simply one of the many actual sins that flows from the polluted well of original sin that springs from within every human heart. Why do dogs bark? Because they are dogs. Why do people sin? Because they are sinners. Homosexuality is simply one of the many sinful expressions man chooses that reveals our depraved nature, alienation from God and our need to know God’s great salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

God would not be just to create someone one way and then turn around and condemn them for acting out what He has made them to be. Besides, tens of thousands of former homosexuals have already been delivered out of the bondage of the gay deathstyle through the saving grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. The good news is, homosexuals can change and become attracted to the opposite sex, get married, and have children. I personally know some who have been transformed by God’s redeeming power in just that way. Stephen Bennett is one that God has delivered and raised up for such a time like this to help others escape the hellish fires of homosexual lust. To those of you who may be ensnared and struggling, visit his website for help. It is www.sbministries.org.

This leads us to the last Scripture that MCC distorted to further their destructive heresies. It is 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, which declares, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites. nor thieves, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you, but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” How does MCC live in a state of denial concerning this blatant text that declares homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God? One way is to teach the social context of Paul’s ministry in the Greco-Roman culture. According to MCC, Paul wasn’t addressing healthy, monogamous, loving homosexuals, but those male prostitute scoundrels again along with wicked pedophiles who prey upon young boys. Isn’t it interesting that the homosexual agenda demands tolerance and a cessation of judgment against them, but turn around and condemn other sexual, deviant, perversions.

The last part of the 1 Corinthian passage should bring great encouragement to those of you who may be shackled and imprisoned by the sin of homosexuality. It mercifully states, “And such were some of you, but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of God.” MCC would have you believe this Scripture is a lie and their personal experience is the truth. They will tell you deliverance is not possible. Thus they are forced to advocate the lying notion that Christianity and homosexuality are compatible and can walk together in perfect harmony. The truth is homosexuality and Biblical Christianity are mutually exclusive. MCC has ceased to fight against the perverted temptations that seek to master them and have brought a peace offering to appease this abomination that rages in their tormented souls. That is why they are so driven to excuse and justify their wicked behavior, even to the point of distorting the Scriptures. This posture is dangerous and deadly. It will eventually lead them to reprobation with no hope of repentance or the acknowledging of the truth that could have saved their eternal souls.

I know the culture, the media, and some segments of the apostate church, like MCC, have conspired to encourage you to just accept homosexuality in order to find peace and cease the struggle. They will deceptively tell you that your deliverance is found in that acceptance. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Your deliverance, as all mankind’s, is found in repentance, by turning away from this grave evil to receive the abundant grace found in Jesus Christ. He alone has the power to liberate you from the depression, the self-hate, the nagging thoughts of suicide, the drugs, the alcoholism, and the diseases that are epidemic amongst gays. Like I said before, there are literally tens of thousands of ex-homosexuals who can testify and confirm this truth.

I know deep down you’re also craving love, but it must be rooted in the truth that sets you free and not in a lie that reinforces you in this sinful destructive lifestyle. The Bible says in Proverbs 27:6, “Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” Sure, the true Church in America can agree with your gay lifestyle, like the MCC, and then watch you perish in an eternity without experiencing the true salvation of Jesus Christ. Is that love, my friend, or is that hate?

When real Christians cry out to warn you to repent and be reconciled back to God that is not hate calling you, it is love. Real love that is empowered by truth that can fulfill the deepest longings of your heart as you are accepted by the one who matters most, the God who created you, the Savior who died for you. You will never find that kind of love in the arms of another man if you’re a homosexual male, nor in the arms of another woman, if you are a lesbian.

My homosexual friend, regardless of what MCC teaches, always remember this, Jesus did not die on a cross, suffer an agonizing death, and shed His blood to enable you in your sin with all its severe consequences. He died to set you free from your sin. That’s why the Bible, speaking specifically to homosexuals, declares the good news, “and such were some of you.” Yes, you were once enslaved, just like all sinners, but now you can be delivered. That old man with all its tyrannical lust can lose its dominion and a new man who has a heart after God will surely emerge. This is my prayer for you today, that you will experience these soul-liberating truths as you call upon the name of Jesus, confess, and forsake your sins. Only then will you receive the mercy that will flood your soul with the love of God (Proverbs 28:13). Open your heart, be not afraid, agree with God about the sin of homosexuality, cry our for deliverance, and receive the abundant pardon that comes from God’s amazing grace.

The Twisted Cross


The Twisted Cross


By Russ Young


The Covenant News ~ April 10, 2007


Some of my generation may recall the classic 1956 documentary “The Twisted Cross.” Originally produced as a part of a series for NBC, and later used as an educational film in schools, including my own, it relied primarily upon collected newsreel footage to chronicle the rise and fall of Nazi Germany. The title alluded to both the Nazi swastika, and how a nation with such a rich history of Christian heritage became perverted.

Today, “The Twisted Cross” as a title most aptly applies to the state of evangelical Christianity. Many sins of the church have contributed to the twisting, but one of the root issues, or the upright beam, must be biblical illiteracy. It is no surprise then that the transverse beam consists of leaders who do not teach about sin along with laity who are unable, or unwilling, to discern sin in their own lives and others.

When Paul was speaking of sin in Rom 7:13, he says that, with the giving of the law, sin became sinful beyond measure, or, as the NASB states, it became “utterly sinful.” In other words, a Biblical understanding of sin is one where sin can only be defined by itself; there is no other definition which can elucidate how bad it is.

Today, however, we must ask, “Where is the doctrine of sin? When is the last time you heard a sermon on the sin? Recall that when we say we are saved, we are not talking about being saved from sin; we are talking about being saved from the wrath of God that rightfully should be poured out upon sinners. Without sin there is no reason to follow Christ who was announced to the world with John’s prophetic words “Behold the lamb of God who takes way the sin of the world.” When we fail to recognize sin we negate the reason for why Christ came.

When Paul was with the Bereans (Acts 17:10-15) we are told they examined the Scriptures daily to see if what Paul was preaching was in fact true. Without knowledge of the Scriptures we cannot hold fast to the word of life. Without knowledge of the Scriptures we will not see sin as problematic. Without a healthy recognition of sin we can bear no fruit in accordance with repentance.

Consequently, evangelical Christianity is full of baby Christians, from pastors on down, who are only able to take the milk of the word and not the meat. If it were not so, the church would be full of power. Now, however, not only is it bereft of power but it is also full of false teachers.

People like Robert Schuller, Joel Olsteen, and Tony Campolo, who go out of their way to distort the boundaries of Christianity while claiming an evangelical label, are rife because our popularity driven churches no longer produce mature Christians who know how to use the word.

Most of today’s church only wants to make people feel good. No demands are made, and subsequently there are no distinctives; we look just like the world. Isaiah 5:20 admonishes us with these words, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!”

In a perverted effort to be attractive to the world, rather than God, the church seeks to hide the truth of God’s judgment. The thinking runs that unbelievers will turn away from the whole counsel of God out of fear. The reality is, without the knowledge of the doctrine of sin we give no one any reason to desire true conversion.

Apparently churches have forgotten that we are called to be set apart unto God, and have lost touch with how heinous sin is to God. Instead of being like Solomon who asked for “a discerning heart to govern… and to distinguish between right and wrong,” we feel we can only ever be affirming and never judging.

But we are to judge. Paul clearly teaches this in 1 Cor. 6:2-3, “Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is judged by you, are you not competent to constitute the smallest law courts? Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, matters of this life?” To be certain, we are not to be judgmental, but as John 7:24 says we are to “judge with righteous judgment.”

Our job is not to make pagans comfortable while sitting in the pews. Nor is it to protect current pew warmers from the knowledge of God’s wrath which will ultimately fall on any who do not seek the Holy. Our job, our privilege, and our blessing is to worship the one true God.

Christ’s purpose was not to make us feel good, at least not until we recognize we are sinners and repent. Only upon regeneration from being dead in our sins, to being alive in Christ, should we feel good. Even then we should not rejoice over ourselves, but about the mercy that God shows us. “The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners,” 1 Timothy 1:15.

Abortion – Abortion Has Killed Millions More Than War


Abortion Has Killed
Millions More Than War


By Russ Young


The Covenant News ~ January 25, 2006


36,000,000 to 52,000,000 or an average of 46,000,000; these are very big numbers. They happen to represent the number of babies that are killed worldwide each year by abortion. These numbers were not fabricated for propaganda purposes; they were compiled by the Alan Guttmacher Institute, the statistical wing of the largest and deadliest abortion institution in America, Planned Parenthood.

Unlike the false, over inflated, numbers that were once fed the nation in order to cajole America into legalizing abortion, these numbers are now recognized by both sides as legitimate. The horrific toll since then, however, has been all too real. And the millions upon millions of innocent babies that have been butchered in the womb will only continue to mount, until this nation, and the world, repents of this abomination.

As we come to another grim anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must never forget how this was accomplished. We now know it was done by using fraudulent facts, and a perjured rape testimony. It was furthered by the lie, given to expectant mothers, that what is in their womb is not a baby. This coupled with the lie that abortion has no negative consequences for women, these lies have been told millions of times over.

For those who continuously push the travesty of abortion aside, a closer look at the statistics can help put the issue into perspective. Since there are so many who are concerned about the tragedy of war, but have no such concern for the taking of innocent lives of babies, a comparison of the deaths between the two seems appropriate.

Michael White, writing for the Twentieth Century Atlas, has compiled an intriguing list of body counts, attributable to the worst known acts of war, and other human atrocities, dating back to the fall of Rome. I will venture to briefly list them here by count and century:

    55 million, Second World War (20C); 40 million, under Mao Zedong (20C); 40 million, Mongol Conquests(13C); 36 million, An Lushan Revolt(8C); 25 million, Fall of the Ming Dynasty(17C); 20 million, Taiping Rebellion(19C); 20 million, toll of American Indians, (15C-19C), 20 million, under Joseph Stalin(20C); 19 million, Mideast Slave Trade(7C-19C); 18 million, Atlantic Slave Trade(15C-); 17 million, Islamic Conquest of India(14C-15C); 17 million, British India(19C); 15 million, First World War(20C); 9 million, Russian Civil War(20C); 9 million, Hindu Thuggee cult killings(13C-19C); 8 million, Fall of Rome(3C-5C); 8 million, Congo Free State(19C – 20C); 7 million, Thirty Years War(17C); 5 million, Russia’s Time of Troubles(16C-17C), 4 million, Napoleonic Wars(19C); 3 million, Chinese Civil War(20C); 3 million, French Wars of Religion(16C).

Taken all together, we have 401 million deaths over nearly 2000 years of war and barbarism. Just for the sake of argument, let’s add another 10%, or 40 million, to cover margins of error, and other wars. This would bring our total to 441 million deaths over the last 20 centuries.

Now, what about abortion? At the low end of the Guttmacher scale, even if we ignore all abortions done prior to 1980 when accurate numbers are a little more difficult to ascertain, abortion accounts for more than twice the number of deaths by war! In just the last 25 years, the ghastly toll for abortion has totaled over 900 million dead babies. Taking the more probable mean average, the toll rises to well over 1 billion babies; or nearly three times the amount of deaths due to war.

How many millions more need die before we understand that abortion is wrong?

This Sunday is Sanctity of Life Sunday. Around Duluth, and around the nation, many will mark the 33 anniversary of legalized abortion. Which side will you choose to stand with, life or death?

Repent – Remember and Repent


Remember and Repent


By Walter Russell


 

An Open Letter to Pastors, Leaders, and all who claim to be Followers of Jesus

    “I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first. Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works. Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden. But hold fast what you have till I come. And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations– ‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’ -as I also have received from My Father; and I will give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”

This is undoubtedly a difficult time for our nation. The devastation in New Orleans and other Gulf coast areas is the result of perhaps the worst natural disaster to ever hit us. Katrina, meaning, “Blessed, Pure, Holy;” was not too much of a blessing for some, but, I wonder if the name could mean something for us? I mean those of us who claim to be followers of Jesus.

How are we to view the events that happened the last few days, and how are we to respond? The above passage is from Revelation, chapter 2, and it was the message to Thyatira, a city whose name, according to Strong’s Concordance, means, “odour of affliction…” Our Lord accuses Thyatira of allowing “that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality…” Hmmm, an afflicted city, condemned because God’s people allowed teachings and seduction leading to sexual immorality… I guess it’s our fault, isn’t it? Have we forgotten that we are salt in the earth (or at least we are supposed to be)?

“If my people, which are called by my name…” is a prophetic word for us because when it was written, God’s people were not called by His name. “Jews” comes from Judah, “Hebrews” probably comes from Eber, “Israel” was the name given to Jacob by God. But we are called “Christians” and Christ is a title that belongs to Jesus, the anointed One, who is God. So really, it is our fault. Where were the preachers of righteousness in New Orleans preaching against porneia (a Greek word meaning to prostitute one’s body to the lust of another)? And not just preaching but living a life worthy of the Name. Or are we really no different than the world? Do we not get divorced and lie and cheat and steal and get drunk and commit immorality just like everyone else?

And what is Jesus’ word to us, since we have allowed those things? I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. Who are her children? Sometimes, the result of porneia is a child. Could it be those who have been in bed with political and religious entities who teach and seduce others to commit immorality have produced a child which God will kill? Is the child a religious system that puts more stock in politics than in godly behavior and obedience to God’s Word? A system that prefers appearance over substance? A system that chooses charisma (not the Biblical charismata) over character? Purpose over purity? Steeples, pews and offering buckets over righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit? A corporate mindset over family relationships?

It is very clear that God needs no employees because if He wants something, He can create it. He does, however, want children, and they have to be conceived by the living Word of God sowed through the foolishness of preaching. Where are the ones who proclaim the Word of God? Where were they? Were there any in New Orleans and Gulfport? Is it really a coincidence that a city known for depravity was condemned (literally) by God? That the casinos of another city were moved by the force of a storm surge?

I appeal to all the followers of Jesus to join me in repenting for our great sin. We have not preached and lived God’s Word and we are guilty of this great judgment brought upon our nation by God.

I appeal to all mayors, congressmen and governors, all civic and political leaders, if they claim to be followers of Christ, to change their way doing business in our cities. Do not invite Southern Decadence, the biggest gay event in the South, which was to happen in New Orleans on Labor Day weekend (but God obviously shut it down), to come back to New Orleans (if there is a New Orleans to come back to). Do not rebuild the casinos in Gulfport. Let us all turn our hearts toward God. What else needs to happen to our nation before we will listen?

The message to the church of Sardis, which followed the message to the church of Thyatira, in the book of Revelation, is this:

    “Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Strengthen the things that remain. Remember the old Bob Dylan song, When you gonna wake up? Here are some of the lyrics:

    …You got innocent men in jail, your insane asylums are filled,
    You got unrighteous doctors dealing drugs that’ll never cure your ills.

    You got men who can’t hold their peace and women who can’t control their tongues.
    The rich seduce the poor and the old are seduced by the young.

    Adulterers in churches and pornography in the schools,
    You got gangsters in power and lawbreakers making rules.

    Spiritual advisors and gurus to guide your every move,
    Instant inner peace and every step you take has got to be approved.

    Do you ever wonder just what God requires?
    You think He’s just an errand boy to satisfy your wandering desires.

    You can’t take it with you and you know that it’s too worthless to be sold,
    They tell you, “Time is money” as if your life was worth its weight in gold.

    There’s a Man up on a cross and He’s been crucified.
    Do you have any idea why or for who He died?

    When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
    When you gonna wake up and strengthen the things that remain?

Jesus says to us, “Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent.” Remember and repent. Isn’t that the message to us right now?

What are the things we’ve forgotten? I believe we can remember them again and hold fast and make a difference. We must stop being tasteless salt. We must get out from under the bushel! Maybe that is how Katrina can be a pure and holy blessing to us. If we repent and turn to God and shepherd our nation back to God. And, by the way, if you do not think that the God of creation brings judgment upon the nations and chastisement to His people, then you have not read His Word and do not know Him. Kyrie Eleison. Pax vobiscum.

Whore – A Whore Cannot Call Her Lover To Repentance!


A whore cannot call
her lover to repentance!


By Walter Russell


 

An Open Letter to Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Marvin Olasky, et al:

Sirs,

I am extremely concerned about your devotion to the GOP. Do you all not know that the Church is called to be the conscience of the civil government? Or have you all forgotten the story of Zedekiah and Micaiah? Are you all not modern day Zedekiahs, who,

    “made him horns of iron: and he said, Thus saith the LORD, With these shalt thou push the Syrians, until thou have consumed them…”?

If you remember, there was a true prophet, Micaiah, who gave the king the true word of the Lord. How dare you ally yourself with the current party in power when Mr Bush and many others in his administration have openly welcomed sodomites and other enemies of the Gospel? Are you ministers of the Gospel or just another political entity?

All these religious groups who ally themselves with political parties are whores in bed with the powers that be. And a whore cannot call her lover to repentance. But a prophet of God can. And a true minister of the Gospel can. Have you forgotten Peter and John in Acts chapter 4?

    “18 And they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. 20 “For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”

I suggest to you, Messrs. Falwell, Robertson, Olasky, et al, that you either divest yourself of any ministerial credentials that you may have and become a true politician, or that you function according to the calling which, I suspect, the Lord has called you to.

Unborn Victims of Violence Act

More So Called Republican Prolife
Legislation That’s NOT Prolife

  News Release
October 1, 1999
From: The Christian Street Preachers’ Alliance
Contact: Jim Rudd editor@covenantnews.com

WASHINGTON — A House subcommittee approved a bill August 4th, that permits mothers to murder their unborn babies by abortion.

Under the false appearance of establishing personhood for the unborn, the bill expressly ensures that none of its provisions will criminalize ripping apart children in the womb, provided the murder is committed as an abortion procedure.

Jim Rudd, Director of the Christian Street Preachers’ Alliance said, “The title of the Bill deceptively reads ‘Unborn Victims of Violence Act.’ However, nothing in the bill protects the unborn from the violent murder of being ripped to pieces from the womb by abortion procedures.”

It is the first such measure proposed at the federal level, according to the National Right to Life Committee, which helped draft the legislation. The bill calls an unborn child “a child in utero,” but does not treat unborn children as living persons with equal protection under the law.

The House subcommittee voted 5-2 for the bill, which moves to the House Judiciary Committee for consideration. Its prime sponsors are abortion funding [Republican] Reps. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Charles Candy of Florida, and Christopher Smith of New Jersey.

Supporters of the bill said, “What this bill seeks to do is face up to the reality that an unborn child is not a nothing, that’s a tiny member of the human family,” said Rep. Henry Hide. However, Christians say, the “reality” Rep. Henry Hide, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, “refuses to face” is that the bill does nothing to establish justice for unborn children who are murdered by abortion procedures.

“While Congressional Committees meet to discuss do nothing legislation, little babies have their heads cut off just down the street from Capitol Hill — Its a reality to hard for a lot of people in the Prolife movement to face. Little babies are murdered in the womb because Republican legislators refuse to face reality,” Rudd said.

South Dakota Referendum – South Dakota Abortion Referendum Strategy Was Off Issue


S.D. Abortion Strategy Was Off Issue
How to focus the abortion debate


By Jim Rudd


The Covenant News ~ November 10, 2006


As long as the pro-life focus is on “abortion hurts women” pro-life activists will consistently lose the public debate to pass legislation to outlaw abortion.

To be successful, in the public eye, the debate must center on why the passage of such legislation is needed to outlaw a cruel and horrific crime. The strategy must highlight the criminality of killing babies by abortion with a primary focus on the carnality of abortion, which is the crime the legislation is attempting to outlaw — and why the good citizens want it outlawed in the first place.

The conclusive evidence of the murdered bodies of aborted babies is on our side. Which means, it establishes the need for such legislation beyond any reasonable doubt. This is why the 2006 South Dakota Abortion Referendum strategy failed. It failed to shut down further debate beyond the “conclusive evidence” because the focus was on “abortion hurts women” and not on the murdered bodies of aborted babies.

Furthermore, the “abortion hurts women” strategy does not pass the “conclusive evidence” test in the public eye. Sure, the pro-life side can produce post-aborted mothers giving testimony that abortion hurt them. But likewise also the pro-aborts can produce post-aborted mothers saying that abortion was the best thing that ever happened to them. So there will never be “conclusive evidence” on “abortion hurts women” that will shut down public debate. The debate will just go on and on.

When we force the abortion people to publicly argue against the butchered bodies of aborted babies we win that argument every time because they can not produce evidence to the contrary. They can not show the world a picture of a baby with his head cut off by abortion and convince the public it was a self-inflected wound or suicide. That would be stupid. They simply can not defend their actions.

The pro-aborts should be made so ashamed of their homicidal butchery that they refuse to show their faces in public, much less make comments to the press.

It is also unethical to NOT clearly articulate to the public the purpose of the legislation when attempting to pass such referendums. The end result of the legislation is to see this bloodshed outlawed, to have the baby murderers hunted down like the mad dogs they are, arrested, prosecuted and punished to the full extent of the law.

The South Dakota Abortion Referendum strategy failed because the people running the political campaign adopted a strategy that was off issue. For some unexplained reason they decided not to convince the public that abortion is murder.

Death Penalty – Death Penalty for Homosexuals – Put Homosexuals To The Sword


Put Homosexuals To The Sword


By Jim Rudd


The Covenant News ~ June 7, 2006


Civil officials have a God ordained duty to execute sodomites.

The word of God commands, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them” (Lev.20:13).

Have we not been taught that homosexuality is an abomination (Lev.18:22). And those who engage in homosexuality are so vile that their very presence defiles the land and its inhabitants (Lev.18:25-28).

This sodomite defilement brings eternal damnation upon all who approve of homosexuality (Rom.1:32, 13:2) and brings God’s righteous judgment of punishment and death on the society as a whole (Gen.19:24-25, II Pet.2:6).

The Magistrate, in his proper role, “beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to [execute] wrath upon him that doeth evil” (Rom.13:4).

Since Magistrates have such a sure Biblical mandate to protect the innocent people in society by using the sword to execute sodomites (he that doeth evil), why then, are Christians encouraging civil officials to ignore the commandments of God concerning homosexuality?

Where does it say in the Bible, “If a man lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, you shall pass a Marriage Protection Amendment”?

Such legislative efforts make the commandments of God of no effect, and Christian men involved in these efforts should be ashamed of themselves for engaging in pharisaical deceit against the ordinance of God in front of His people (Matt.5:17-20, 15:7-9; Rom.13:2).

Back in 2003, when the Supreme Court issued an opinion against Texas sodomy laws in Lawrence v. Texas, Republicans started pushing the idea of a “Marriage Protection Amendment” as a solution to the “gay problem.” As we now know the amendment idea is not a solution but a red herring used by crafty politicians to distract Christians away from obedience to the commandments of God concerning homosexuality. It is a political trick used to lure the Church into a humiliating situation of begging the State to “defend marriage” while allowing civil officials to circumvent their God ordained duty to administer Justice upon sodomites!

When the Supreme Court rendered its Lawrence opinion, every U.S. Congressmen from the state of Texas should have issued an Indictment of Impeachment to have the Supreme Court Justices, responsible for such an abomination, to be kicked off the bench for sexual deviant behavior under Article III Section. I of the Constitution. Across the nation reprobate federal judges sit on the bench at the behest of our U.S. Congressmen and U.S. Senators.

America is a cursed nation (John.7:49) and “defending marriage” does nothing to cut off the curse. The marriage amendment does nothing to protect the people of the United States from the wrath to come-because of homosexuality. The word of God commands that sodomites are to be executed, and God gives our civil officials the sword to do the job. Until our civil officials turn from their wicked way by administering Justice, we can only be judged with the most depraved pagan nations in history:

Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire” (Jude 1:7).

If you hate your children’s guts, then do not teach them how to administer Justice in the land (Eph.6:4). Just sit back and let the lawless be damned (Matt.7:21-23).

Preaching points:

Lev.20:13 — If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Lev.18:22 — Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Lev.18:25-28 — And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.

Rom.1:32 — Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Rom.13:2 — Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

Gen.19:24-25 — Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

II Pet.2:6 — And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly.

Rom.13:4 — For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

Matt.5:17-20 — Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Matt.15:7-9 — Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Rom.13:2 — Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

Lev.18:24-30 — Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you. For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people. Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.

John.7:49 — But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.

Jude 1:7 — Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Eph.6:4 — And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Matt.7:21-23 — Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    Pro-Lifers’ Right To Know

    It was reported by a number of news sources that a “pro-life” bill called the ‘Women’s Right To Know Bill’ “moved closer to passage” in the House of Representatives in the State of Georgia:

      “A special subcommittee of the House Health and Human Services Committee voted 8-2 to move House Bill 197 on to the full committee, after hearing two hours of testimony on both sides of the issue. Supporters of the bill said it will provide women seeking an abortion with information they need for a properly informed decision. The bill also tightens requirements for parental notification before an abortion.”

    HB 197

    The first time I read through HB 197 I found it to be convoluted and poorly written. It looks like the legislative scribes took multiple bills and pasted them all together into this one bill.

    HB 197 stipulates that mothers seeking to kill their children by abortion (premeditated murder) are to be given “informed consent” information before the killing starts. The information is to be developed by the Georgia Department of Human Resources.

    With statements like, “No abortion is authorized or shall be performed unless the abortion is performed in a licensed hospital, in a licensed ambulatory surgical center, or in a health facility licensed as an abortion facility by the Department of Human Resources,” HB 197 squarely places control of child killing by abortion in the hands of the Department of Human Resources.

    HB 197 also creates a 24-hour waiting period before the state licensed killing begins. It also requires parents of pregnant teenagers be notified before their unborn grandchildren are murdered — with the help of the State.

    Furthermore, the bill specifically states, “No penalty may be assessed against the female upon whom the abortion is performed or attempted to be performed.”

    In all I would say that by incorporating such homicidal regulations into the Official Code of Georgia, state lawmakers are saying they intend to keep the murder of children by abortion legal for a very long time to come.

    Are Georgia lawmakers aware of the fact that if HB 197 becomes law it would make them, and the citizens of Georgia, directly accountable for the murder of every unborn child killed under these regulations?

    Such legislation is NOT pro-life

    It can be clearly stated that the expansion of state abortion regulations in killing unborn children by defining how, when, where, on whom, by whom, or with whose permission abortions may be carried out, is NOT “pro-life!”

    Regulating abortion is NOT outlawing abortion! Regulating how children are to be killed is NOT outlawing child killing! Quite the contrary.

    The Bible clearly states that abortion is murder and civil authorities are to administer justice upon them “that doeth evil!” The murder of children by abortion is to be outlawed by the State!

    The HB197 Pro-Life Fraud

    Unfortunately, Christians across the State of Georgia are being lied to by fund-raising special interest groups telling them that HB197 is “pro-life.” Soliciting funds under a false pretense is fraud!

    FRAUD occurs when all of the following elements exist:

    • An individual or an organization intentionally makes an untrue representation about an important fact or event;
    • the untrue representation is believed by the victim (the person or organization to whom the representation has been made);
    • the victim relies upon and acts upon the untrue representation;
    • the victim suffers loss of money and/or property as a result of relying upon and acting upon the untrue representation. (1)

    How To Report A Pro-Life Fraud

    If you are a pro-life Christian living in the State of Georgia, and you receive or have received in the U.S. Mail a solicitation or solicitations of funds asking you for “pro-life” support of HB197, you can file a fraud complaint with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service by using its Mail Fraud Complaint Form page.

    Advisory: Sometimes the scammer will use a term like “sanctity of life” while referencing HB197, or they will say, “We need your help!” in combination with an appeal for funds or “donation” requests.

    Subject of Your Complaint

    If the group claims to be a non-profit “ministry” or a non-profit organization, while passing themselves off as being “pro-life” and soliciting funds in support of HB197, the subject of your complaint would be filed under “Charity Fraud.”

    If the group is soliciting your financial support to lobby for the passage of HB197, while fraudulently calling it “pro-life,” you can file the complaint under “Misrepresentation of Products/Services.”

    You can also contact your local postmaster or call the Fraud Complaint Unit of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service toll-free at 1-800-372-8347.

    Remember: If you have become a victim of the HB197 Pro-Life Fraud and suffered loss of money to a scammer, make sure you tell the authorities that you have just learned HB197 is NOT pro-life, and you have been defrauded out of your money.

    Pro-Life Telemarketing Fraud

    In addition, under U.S. federal law, anyone who engages in fraudulent activity and uses telephones, telegraph and/or the Postal Service to discuss or either send or receive correspondence or documents in furtherance of the fraud, can be prosecuted for felony mail fraud and/or wire fraud; and if two or more persons act in collusion to defraud, U.S. federal conspiracy statutes also apply. (1)

    If you have received phone calls from groups scaming you for your pro-life financial support of HB197, you can contact the National Fraud Information Center and report such telemarketing fraud or call NFIC at 1-800-876-7060.

    Conclusion

    The Christian Church in America is being attacked by deceit and fraud. For years the abortion regulators and scam artists have preyed upon the Church with fraudulent claims that legislation like the ‘Women’s Right To Know Bill’ is “pro-life.”

    Unsuspecting and good hearted Christians have been defrauded out of hundreds of millions of dollars by swindlers and con-artists dressed in “pro-life” clothing for three decades.

    Deuteronomy 30 sets forth God’s pro-life principle: Obey the commandments, choose life and live, or, disobey the commandments, choose death and die. Christians choose life. The supporters of HB197 and their ilk have chosen death.

    The time of the Abortion Regulation Con Game upon the Church in America is coming to an end!

    Fetal Pain Legislation is Bogus

    Un-Constitutional Federal Expansion of the Abortion Industry

    If the willful and deliberate slaughter of unborn children by the federal government can teach us one thing, it is how far the carnal mind will go to avoid obeying the commandments of God.

    Apart from being a shocking example of genocidal thinking, the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act is also one of the best illustrations of how distorted reality can become when men separate themselves from a Biblical world view. Such is the lesson to be learned from a people that support regulating the systematic murder of children by abortion.

    Guided by the over-riding homicidal principles of a “woman’s right to choose,” federal lawmakers stipulate in their “Findings,” that unborn children 20 weeks and older, should be killed like animals in accordance to the “Humane Slaughter Act (7 U.S.C. 1902).” This law states, “No method of slaughter or handling in connection with slaughtering shall be deemed to comply with the public policy of the United States unless it is humane.”

    Out-doing even the Nazis’ “more efficient” and “humane” extermination projects, the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act sets forth a completely new set of definitions in how `abortion providers’ (the State’s Willing Executioners) are to anesthetize children in the womb before killing them.

    The Act specifically defines which children are to be killed

    The Act gives pro-aborts a new term for children in the womb: Pain-Capable Unborn Child: “The term `pain-capable unborn child’ means an unborn child who has reached a probable stage of development of 20 weeks after fertilization.”

    The Act stipulates that mothers seeking to kill their children by abortion (premeditated murder) are to be given “Informed Consent” information, “by telephone or in person,” before the killing starts.

    The Act provides for an “Unborn Child Pain Awareness Brochure” be developed at taxpayer’s expense by the Department of Health and Human Services. Under these guidelines the “abortion providers” are to offer every mother of a “pain-capable unborn child” a “brochure” before the killing begins.

    The Act also provides mothers with a “Waiver” called the “Unborn Child Pain Awareness Decision Form,” where she can “request or refuse the administration of pain-reducing drugs to the unborn child” before the killing starts.

    Future historians will undoubtedly declare the United States of America’s legislative slaughter of unborn children as one of the greatest evils perpetrated by human beings.

    Church rise up and rebuke the evil doers

    Are U.S. lawmakers aware of the fact that if this federal legislation becomes law it would make them accountable for the murder of every child killed under these federal regulations?

    Jesus said, “It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.”

    It is the duty of lawmakers to not “beareth the sword in vain,” and as God’s ministers, to “execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.”

    But the simple truth is that this Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act makes the lawmakers death-regulators and further entangles the federal government in child killing.

      Thou shalt not kill.” says Exodus 20:13, and “Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed,” says Isaiah 10:1.

    Christians expect lawmakers to obey the commandments of God. Christians expect their lawmakers to outlaw abortion. Christians expect federal and state administrations to make sure such criminal laws are enforced. Christians expect federal and state attorney generals to hunt down baby murderers and prosecute them to the full extent of the law. If murderous judges rear their ugly heads, Christians expect lawmakers and administrations to impeach such judges from the bench! The State must stop slaughtering children!

      When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. Proverbs 29:2

    Every Christian pro-lifer across the nation should raise their voice in outrage over the lies that suggest such heinous legislation is called “pro-life.”

    Partial-Birth Ban of No Effect

    New law encourages up-to-full term abortions

    It is difficult to measure the harm being done by people in the pro-life ranks who are spreading false and misleading information which is being used to deceive Christians into believing that the `Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003′ is pro-life.

    Because the “Ban” may reverberate in the courts for some time, giving occasion for these people to blather on, I believe it is necessary to familiarize ourselves with key aspects of the Act, so we may give a quick and decisive answer to Christians who have been misled, and to those people who are willfully spreading the lies.

    This Act is so riddled with holes it would take quite a lengthy paper to point them all out. So I’ve decided to focus on just the primary loophole in such a way that will help you to repeat it in causal conversation with other people — like with friends and family at church. I have also added links to the related material at the bottom of this page.

    The Loophole

    First, The Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003(1) does not mention the medical procedure known as the “Intact Dilation and Extraction” (D&X abortion). Since the Act does not use this official medical term, then the D&X procedure is not banned or outlawed by any legal means of this Act.

    Second, the Act is specifically restricted by the word “living.” “Living, unborn child’s body,” “living fetus.” The words “living fetus” are used three times in the Act.(2)

    The Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act only applies to a “living fetus” — and there is nothing in the Act to prevent abortionists from killing viable late term babies in the womb first!

    If the “fetus” is killed before being pulled out of the womb then the “Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act” is moot!

    All an abortionist has to do is kill the baby in the womb first; then using the medical D&X abortion procedure — pull the dead baby out — feet first — where the baby’s head is up to the cervical os, puncture a hole at the back of the neck at the base of the skull (making sure not to cut the mother’s cervix), suck the baby’s brains out, collapsing the skull, and then pull the head out of the birth canal.

    By not outlawing the medical D&X abortion procedure, and then, specifically limiting the definition of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban to applying only to a “living fetus,” it is glaringly obvious that the lawmakers purposely fashioned the Act in such a way to encourage abortionists to murder up-to-full term babies in the womb first! You can see how the Act is synonymous with only a “partially delivered living fetus”(2) and does not apply to an already dead baby.

    Predictions

    When I first spoke of this loophole a question was asked, “How would an abortionist kill the baby first?” There are a number of methods. Abortionists kill children before extracting their bodies by using ultrasound to guide an injection of lethal potassium chloride into a baby’s heart. Other abortionists use an injection of digoxin to cause fetal cardiac arrest. But while I was doing research for this paper, I stumbled across something that I believe is going to reshape the baby killing abortion industry.

    I predict the new ultrasound technologies will be used as the primary execution instrument to carry out the murder of babies in the womb by a non-invasive high-energy ultrasound beam, similar to the ones being perfected and refined to pulverize tumors in cancer patients.(3)

    The ultrasound will become the ultimate abortion machine. Sonogram Abortionists (or Sonoborts) will kill children at all stages of life, from the moment a little baby can be detected. A “non-invasive procedure” that kills — makes the ultrasound — the “Dream-Machine” for an abortion industry plagued with high medical malpractice insurance rates.

    “Non-invasive” means no cutting, no sharp instruments in the mother’s body. No slicing, no jabbing around with long needles. It means a major reduction in medical malpractice lawsuits and a reduction of high insurance rates for every abortion clinic equipped with the newest ultrasound technology.

    With just a two or three second blast of a high-energy ultrasound beam to the heart or brain will kill a full term baby in the womb. So then that leaves the question, “What is the cheapest and safest way to remove dead babies from inside mothers’ bodies? We see again why Congress deliberately refused to outlaw the medical D&X abortion procedure.

    The race is on to develop it and make it more powerful.

    Ultrasound surgery is on the cutting edge of tumor detection, liver, kidney and prostate cancers eradication.(4) Imagine being able to pulverize cancerous tumors, and the money that must be pouring into its development. Ultrasound technology is also on the cutting edge of Preborn Screening for abnormalities.(5) And it is just a matter of time when the two areas of research are combined for the purpose of killing babies in the womb.(6)

    Sonoborts will use a targeting device, much like moving the cursor on your computer screen with your mouse. Once the first trimester baby is detected on the screen, the Sonobort aims the cursor at the point of impact. Then with a left click of the mouse, the computer locks the targeting device. With a right click of the mouse a pop-up window appears allowing for the selection of the “proper” energy level, roughly 10,000 times the power used for prenatal pictures. Then, with just another left click of the mouse, a beam so hot that it literally boils the baby away within seconds. Click, click, click and the little baby is pulverized just like they treat a cancerous tumor.(7)

    Conclusion

    Christians who analyze civil law must have the most serious of minds. We see an example of this in Acts.17. The Bereans, “were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

    This “readiness of mind” to “search the scriptures,” to find out whether those things being said are true, is our Biblical example of nobility. It is the way we find out if people are lying when they tell us that a particular piece of legislation is “pro-life” or “pro-family,” or what ever Christian euphemism they use to tell us a civil law deserves our support. Without prejudice and partiality, we must examine the civil law against the scriptures, having “readiness of mind” to cast “down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God.”

    It is disheartening to watch Christians, when they hear that a piece of legislation is “pro-life” or “pro-family” or even “conservative,” make the fatal mistake of assuming the legislation ‘must be Biblical.’ Christians must learn to ask themselves, “What does God say about the legislation,” and then read the legislation to find out specifically what it says and then search the scriptures! Without first going through this preliminary process, then you must assume that you will be publicly rebuked for supporting legislation that you have no idea of what you are talking about!

    With so many antinomian, anti-Bible parachurch organizations involved in the political process today and constantly berating the Church to support their legislative initiatives, Christians need to remember this political axiom: “Never make a comment about legislation until you have read it first!”

    Christians Murdering Babies

    Have you ever seen a mother and daughter enter an abortion clinic together? Like all Christian preachers who have spent years preaching in front of abortion clinics, I have seen thousands of mothers and daughters entering abortion clinics together. Have you ever tried to call a maternal grandmother to repentance from murdering her grandchild as she is entering into an abortion clinic, when all along she is there to give her consent?

    Most Christians, who call themselves “pro-life,” never see what goes on outside of abortion clinics. Most Christians do not realize that hundreds of grandparents everyday give their “consent” to murder their grandchildren in obedience to “parental consent” laws that Christians have supported and passed into law.

    As Christian preachers who have seen the murder of children under laws supported by Christians, we find ourselves in the heart-rending situation of having to warn the righteous of their iniquity and call them to repentance (Ezekiel 3:18-21). Just like the pro-abortion people who will render an account in the Day of Judgment because they supported and passed laws to murder children, Christians involved in the process of supporting and passing laws to murder children will also render an account for the innocent blood they have shed.

    According to recent news reports, after 30 years of Roe v. Wade, eighteen states request “parental consent” to murder children by abortion, fourteen states make an attempt to issue “parental notification”, and eighteen states have some kind of “waiting period”. All of these laws were supported and passed by Christians. In 30 years how many innocent babies do you think have been murdered by abortion after someone has given their consent, or after someone has been notified, or after someone waited 24 hours — 20 million innocent babies, 25 million? God only knows.

    Murder is a crying sin. The innocent blood cries out to God from the ground. Blood calls for blood, the blood of the murdered for the blood of the murderers. When innocent people are murdered, God not only hears the innocent blood crying out to Him for Justice, He also takes into account all the people responsible for the shedding of that innocent blood so Justice can be administered in the Day of Judgement. Rest assured, every person will face their accuser and every drop of innocent blood will be avenged. (Revelation 6:10; 20:12-15)

    God’s judgment will include, but not be limited to, every person responsible for the support and passage of laws that specifically allow for the murder of innocent people. To think otherwise is to suggest for example God will not hold Germans accountable who supported and passed Nazi laws that were used to murder innocent people. The Nazi Hunters did not find every German responsible for the Nazi holocaust, but God knows who they are. This also applies to abortion laws that are used to murder innocent children. God knows every person responsible for the support and passage of these murderous laws.

    How did we ever get to the place where pro-life Christians are just as responsible and just as guilty of murdering children by abortion as the pro-abortion people? God means what He says when He says “Thou shalt not kill.” For Christians to support the passage of laws that specifically allow for the killing of innocent people is in direct and open rebellion against the kingdom of God! For Christians to join in the shedding of innocent blood demonstrates a great “falling away” by Christians who have believed lies perpetrated by people who take on the appearance of religion but are in fact murderous wolves in sheep’s clothing.

    “Beloved, remember” we are foretold, that these things will happen in the Church. The General Epistle of Jude warns us that “certain men crept in unawares” (v.4), who “have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward” (v.11). We see these people everyday within the pro-life movement — within the Church! Political special interest groups lying to Christians by calling these murderous laws “pro-life” so they can raise financial support — bringing Christians into murderous bondage! Political partisans, who care more for their political party than they do for the ways of God! The lesson in the Book of Jude is that we are to be watchful against such evil and perverse men springing up in the Church, and when they do, we must contend earnestly for the faith in opposition to those who would corrupt society with such lies.

    Now I know that there are many pro-life Christians out there who have never thought about the consequences of supporting the passage of these murderous laws — because you were mislead into believing that such laws were “pro-life” and you believed the lie. The good news is that God has provided for you a refuge of hope against the Day of Judgment for your personal involvement in murdering children.

    In the Old Testament the LORD commanded Moses to appoint cities of refuge where the slayer may flee, “which killeth any person at unawares” or unwittingly. (Numbers 35: 9-15). Today, Jesus Christ is our City of Refuge. The mercies of salvation, through Christ, prefigured by these cities in the Old Testament, are Christ raised up on the cross; exalted at the right hand of the Father, as Lord and Saviour, to give repentance and remission of sins. Thus Jesus is The Only Refuge from destruction for His people who unwittingly “killeth any person”.

    All Christians involved in supporting or passing these murderous abortion laws — yet at the time you supported them you honestly believed you were doing something good — God knows who you are. Cry out for repentance! Turn away from being involved with these murderous laws and flee to Christ. For Jesus has compassion upon ignorant people in His Church, and He knows the hearts of men. Give thanks and praise His Holy name for He knows the hearts of men.

    Capricious Disregard

    Where Law Ends and Tyranny Begins

    Taking a cue from Pastor Chuck Baldwin’s commentary, Americans Must Start Thinking Outside The Box, I’m going to walk through an example of “thinking outside the box.” My experience in working with different Christian ministries has shown me that most people do not understand anymore how to think creatively using “objective certainty” as their fixed reference point.

    I have noticed when we practice these principles with a mind-set always focused on the very specific objective that abortion is murder, we never lose a public debate concerning abortion because that truth and the facts we state shut the mouths of our adversaries.

    Whenever I’m out at an abortion clinic and know the abortionist is inside doing abortions, and the police drop by, I’ve started reporting to the police, “I have reason to believe that a murder is being committed inside that building.” You see, in most states, knowing or having reasonable suspicion that a crime is being committed and not reporting it to the civil authorities is a misdemeanor, and in the case of a felony crime, it’s a felony not to report it.

    I know that some of you are thinking that most civil officials don’t consider an abortion to be a murder so why bother to report it? This is the whole point: the crime of murder is not determined by someone’s opinion, not my opinion, not your opinion, or any civil officials’ opinion. Murder is established through homicide law — regardless of what people’s opinions are.

    Murder is determined solely by the undeniable physical evidence of a dead human body. Each state has laws authorizing the Coroner or Medical Examiner “to determine the cause of death and the circumstances of death by an accurate impartial examination of the forensic evidence of the corpse” — the murdered human body.

    In most states, medical examiners compile the murder evidence into a report, which include autopsy photographs, and then must be given to the District Attorney’s Office. The DA in turn presents the Medical Examiner’s Report to a Grand Jury, who then issues an indictment against the murderer[s].

    When I’m standing outside an abortion clinic at 11 a.m., and they started killing children by abortion at 9 a.m., I am absolutely confident that the police will find evidence of the crime of murder being committed inside that building — the same kind of evidence used to prosecute murders in all 50 states — and I’ll swear to it!

    When we are standing in front of an abortion clinic we are not only men of God calling sinners to repentance, we are also law abiding citizens. When law enforcement officers come along we change from preacher to law abiding citizen properly reporting a crime. This has a tremendous effect in neutralizing the hostility law enforcement officers may have toward us. It substantiates our initial (pro-life) reason for why we are at the abortion clinic, and more importantly, lets the law enforcement officers know that we know what they are suppose to be doing in their official capacity.

    Now I’m not suggesting that activists rush out to the local abortion clinic and report to the police that murder is being committed in there. First, do a little homework. Find out what your state laws say about reporting crimes. In some states you may be required to fill out a form. Find out about the homicide laws in your state, particularly the ones dealing with physical evidence and the Medical Examiner’s/Coroner’s Office — find out who that local Medical Examiner is. Also, find out how to file a citizen’s complaint against a police officer. You will need this information when they refuse to go inside the abortion clinic and arrest the murderers — putting on record that you did indeed report a crime and they ignored you. The responsibility now rests solely on the civil authorities.

    What the police are suppose to do when they find a citizen standing on a public sidewalk pointing at a building and saying, “the crime of murder is being committed in there,” is go inside and see if the crime of murder is, in fact, being committed. When they see the evidence of murder (which we already know they will), they are to apprehend the suspects, seal off the area with that orange or yellow crime-scene tape, and then secure the facility for the Forensic Team from the Medical Examiner’s Office to arrive to pronounce the approximate time of death, take pictures and collect the evidence, which they will later give to the DA’s office.

    Whenever local or state officials and judges refuse to act on the evidence — murdered human bodies of children killed by abortion — the same kind of evidence they use to prosecute murderers everyday — they are guilty of capricious disregard.

    Capricious disregard is: “A willful and deliberate disregard of competent testimony and relevant evidence which one of ordinary intelligence could not possibly have avoided in reaching the result.” –Unemployment Compensation Bd. of Review v, Kessler, 27 Pa.Cmwlth. 1, 365 A.2d 459, 462.

    Do I believe that it is the responsibility of citizens to alert the public when our local, state and federal officials and judges are not upholding the law? I absolutely do! In fact, most pro-life Christians may not know or understand the very important social and political role we already play in doing exactly that.

    You see, all the years that Christians have been protesting at abortion clinics, they have not only been exposing the fact that the local police and authorities are ignoring the crime of murder, they have also been shining a very public light on the utter hypocrisy of all civil officials in our criminal justice system who falsely testify to be enforcing the law.

    This is why pro-life protesters at abortion clinics are met with such open hostility by so many local police, prosecuting attorneys, judges and the Department of Justice. All these civil officials know very well that the murder evidence they are ignoring inside our nation’s abortion clinics is the exact same kind of evidence they use to prosecute and punish murderers everyday throughout our land — and they don’t like Christians coming along shining a light on their capricious disregard for the Rule of Law they claim to be upholding.

    John Locke said in his Second Treatise on Government, Chapter 18, Of Tyranny:

    “Wherever law ends, tyranny begins, if the law be transgressed to another’s harm; and whosoever in authority exceeds the power given him by the law, and makes use of the force he has under his command to compass that upon the subject which the law allows not, ceases in that to be a magistrate, and acting without authority may be opposed, as any other man who by force invades the right of another.”

    Let me apply what John Locke said to our own circumstances. Genocide, our current form of tyranny, began in the United States of America when civil officials of the federal government exceeded their civil “power” when they decided to promote, and maintain “by force” the availability of abortion to murder children in the womb, thereby denying unborn children their “right” to live — the “genocide” of a whole class of human beings.

    How do we prove with legal standing that a civil government has become tyrannical? How do we prove with legal standing a civil official is a “tyrant” and is “without authority” to govern? We point to the place where “law ends” — the “willful and deliberate disregard” state officials show toward the evidence of a crime — the murdered human bodies of aborted children.

    You see, there is no law against murder in the Constitution. The Constitution of the United States leaves criminal law to the states. When state governments gave heed to the mere belief that the federal government had somehow “legalized” abortion as a “medical procedure,” the states ignored their own criminal law concerning the crime of murder — at that point the law ended and tyranny began. We prove it by pointing first at the murdered bodies of the aborted babies and then to the civil officials’ willful and deliberate disregard of the evidence — the same kind of evidence they use to prosecute murderers everyday.

    In stark hypocrisy, the law prosecutes and punishes on the one hand, but on the other hand, the “law ends” and murder goes unpunished.

    Part 2 of this commentary will be Shutting the Mouths of Our Adversaries.

    National Right to Life’s Deception

    The Pro-life Movement received three devastating body blows last week, and now the fate of millions of human lives face a much greater threat of being murdered. During the National Right to Life Committee’s annual convention, held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, NRLC announced that it is expanding its “agenda” to include human embryo stem-cell research, physician-assisted suicide and human cloning.

    The Pro-life Movement must conclude from this tragic announcement that these three types of murder, including all forms of abortion, will be prolonged indefinitely. And, because NRLC is a non-profit front organization for the Republican Party, pro-lifers must now realize that the Republican Party not only has no real intention of making these three types of murder illegal but will promote and maintain them just as they have abortion for the last 30 years.

    Acquiescing to the Bush Administration and defending its long-time “decision to compromise on legislation,” Darla St. Martin, NRLC’s executive director, in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, said in a whining tone, “It depends on whether people are looking at the ideal position as opposed to what is possible in Congress today. We are having a hard time now just getting something against cloning. We are on Capitol Hill every day. We know what the votes are. We know what can be sustained.”

    For months the News Media reported that, according to numerous public opinion polls, a great majority of Americans are against any form of human cloning, and, also, President Bush “endorses a human cloning ban.” However, according to news reports on Capitol Hill, two weeks ago Bush sent his White House attorneys to lobby against and shoot down an effort in the Senate to “effectively stop commercial human cloning.” As was reported by WorldNetDaily, “Bush hung the pro-life community out to dry.”

    Since NRLC says it’s “on Capitol Hill every day,” what was their response to the news that Bush scuttled the human cloning ban? The normal thing to do, if you’re an efficient national lobbying group in the nation’s Capital, would be to rush out a press release informing the public about the loss of the Senate’s cloning ban. Did NRLC send out press releases informing the public that Bush lied and that he is really not against human cloning? As a good and faithful steward of its donor financing, did NRLC alert its members at its annual convention that Bush lied and shot down the human cloning ban? No, none of these.

    As reported in the press, NRLC propagated the lie and perpetrated a fraud on its members that Bush is “pro-life” by showing a “pre-recorded video of Bush” giving them a pro-life message at the convention — this happened after “Bush hung the pro-life community out to dry.” In fact, according to their web site, NRLC is still saying Bush is “urging a ban on all forms of human cloning.” They also mislead the public and lied to Christians by saying “President George W. Bush, (is a) staunch pro-life ally in the White House.”

    Christians in America are going to have to wise-up to what is going on here. Just like Communist China has an “Official State Church” and an unofficial Christian Church, the Pro-life Movement in America has an Official Pro-life Organization controlled by the State — National Right to Life Committee. Just like the Official State Church is used to deceive, betray and destroy the true Christian Church in China, NRLC is used to deceive, betray and destroy the true Pro-life Movement in the Untied States of America.

    If you are a regular reader of Covenant News, you have seen headlines that read, “NRLC Stands With The Devil — Again.” Within those stories, a long train of abuses becomes apparent. Time and again NRLC and its affiliates are used by the State to speak out against pro-life activists lobbying legislation, against pro-life activists at abortion clinics and speaking out against pro-life activists carrying posters or signs with the pictures of aborted babies. You might remember the recent news stories where NRLC and its supporters have started speaking out against Christians and their pro-life Web Sites.

    The other thing the Official State Church in China does for its communist masters is provide a deceptive lie to the general public that Communist China has “freedom of religion.” In like manner, National Right to Life Committee provides a deceptive lie to the general public that the Republican Party and its lawmakers are “pro-life.” This lying deception allows the national media to play the two sides, Democrat and Republican, against one another in a partisan tug-of-war concerning Abortion Rights vs. Anti-Choice, propagating blind, prejudiced and unreasoning allegiance, when all along the Republican Party has no intention whatsoever of making abortion illegal.

    And finally, NRLC just celebrated its 30th Annual Convention. Can anybody point out to me a lobbying group that is still in business with a 30-year track record of total failure? I mean 30 years of failure! After 30 years of lobbying against abortion throughout the land, abortion is not illegal anywhere in the United States. Why would anybody in their right mind keep an organization in business that has absolutely and totally failed for 30 years?

    Well, you see, failure is in the eyes of the beholder. NRLC is a failure to pro-life Christians, and most importantly it is a failure to the millions of little babies that have been murdered by abortion in this nation for the past 30 years. But it’s not a failure to the ones who benefit most by it staying in business right where it is — the Abortion Industry, the Republican Party, and its lawmakers.
