LDS (Mormonism) Continuous Assault On Christianity

Mormon-book

The ad campaigns are slick. LDS members who hold high profile positions speak in measured tone. They talk about a “Jesus”. They give away free King James Bibles (while telling members that the KJV is “corrupt”) and send free Books of Mormon to those who call in a request. They are building “wards” calling themselves the “Community of Christ” to hide their LDS identity.

Even clueless, professing Christians like former President Jimmy Carter assist in propagating the lie. Carter even left the Southern Baptist Convention because the Baptists wouldn’t stop calling Mormonism a cult. [1]

Is the Mormon Church just another denomination? Are they Christians, too?

This Is Hardly Christianity

Well, doctrinally, that question is answered with a simple Bible study. Mormonism (The [so-called] Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) preaches a false Jesus and a false gospel. And once you peak behind the veil of propaganda, you will find that Mormonism is a sex cult whose “god” was supposedly once a man like you and I, but whose works earned him “godhood”. As a “god”, the Mormon god, called Elohim and heavenly Father, is having celestial sex with untold numbers of deified women (truly GODMOTHERS!) who give birth to those who are now earth-dwellers.

As earth-dwellers, men have the opportunity to be good Mormons and become gods in the next life. A good Mormon man will be deified and given his own planet to populate with his own hordes of goddesses (glorified Mormon ladies) to impregnate and a planet to populate. And all of this comes from Joseph Smith, Jr. (and is also confirmed by Brigham Young and all successive “prophets” in the LDS). Smith got a head start and practiced polygamy (including minor girls) while on earth. [2]

Stitch

Do you see the strange similarities between Mormonism and Islam? They both add a book to the Bible. Neither of these prophets actually prophesied anything worth mentioning. They both have “a prophet” that supercedes Jesus Christ.

Both of these prophets (Joseph Smith of Mormonism and Mohammad of Islam) received divine revelations that enabled them to have multiple sex partners (“wives”) and they both used the practice of polygamy to molest underaged “brides”.

And both of these so-called prophets taught their followers that if they were faithful to the “prophet” on earth, SEX awaits them in Heaven!

A Sad, Incredible HOAX 
What makes the cult status of Mormonism all the more clear to any logical, THINKING person is the fact that Mormons, from top to bottom, make it clear that they believe themselves to be the only true church and that all other denominations of Christianity are preaching a false gospel. In fact, if Mormonism WERE true, then Biblical Christianity would have to be false since the so-called “gospel” of Mormonism does not even compare to the Biblical Gospel of salvation by faith alone in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as found in your King James Bible.

Take for example the words from a writer in the Mormon publication called Ensign, “…we are part of the true, restored gospel of Jesus Christ. We have a work to do.” [3] That was printed in 2005! The Mormon Church puts up a front, pretending to want to be just another Christian denomination when, in fact, they retain their claims of superiority over Biblical Christianity.

Again, the writer of that statement, in an official Mormon publication, said that Mormons, “are part of the true, restored gospel…” In contrast to the “false, lost gospel…” of Biblical Christianity?

Don’t be fooled.

That statement from Ensign magazine is exactly what the Mormon Church believes and preaches. Isn’t it ironic? Ignoramuses like Jimmy Carter blast Bible-believing Christians because we point out the OBVIOUS and state that Mormonism is a false cult. In the meantime, Mormons teach that Jimmy Carter himself is a deceived member of false religion who preaches a false gospel!!

Get a clue Jimmy.

Knox Seminary Statement On Israel

In 2002, more than 25 seminary professors (see list at the bottom) signed off on an open letter regarding their view on Israel.  It is a Replacement Theology Statement.

It has since been removed from it’s original location on the Knox Seminary website, so we have posted it here for future reference.


An Open Letter to Evangelicals and Other Interested Parties:
The People of God, the Land of Israel, and the Impartiality of the Gospel

Recently a number of leaders in the Protestant community of the United States have urged the endorsement of far-reaching and unilateral political commitments to the people and land of Israel in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, citing Holy Scripture as the basis for those commitments. To strengthen their endorsement, several of these leaders have also insisted that they speak on behalf of the seventy million people who constitute the American evangelical community.

It is good and necessary for evangelical leaders to speak out on the great moral issues of our day in obedience to Christ’s call for his disciples to be salt and light in the world. It is quite another thing, however, when leaders call for commitments that are based upon a serious misreading of Holy Scripture. In such instances, it is good and necessary for other evangelical leaders to speak out as well. We do so here in the hope that we may contribute to the cause of the Lord Christ, apart from whom there can never be true and lasting peace in the world.

At the heart of the political commitments in question are two fatally flawed propositions. First, some are teaching that God’s alleged favor toward Israel today is based upon ethnic descent rather than upon the grace of Christ alone, as proclaimed in the Gospel. Second, others are teaching that the Bible’s promises concerning the land are fulfilled in a special political region or “Holy Land,” perpetually set apart by God for one ethnic group alone. As a result of these false claims, large segments of the evangelical community, our fellow citizens, and our government are being misled with regard to the Bible’s teachings regarding the people of God, the land of Israel, and the impartiality of the Gospel.

In what follows, we make our convictions public. We do so acknowledging the genuine evangelical faith of many who will not agree with us. Knowing that we may incur their disfavor, we are nevertheless constrained by Scripture and by conscience to publish the following propositions for the cause of Christ and truth.

1. The Gospel offers eternal life in heaven to Jews and Gentiles alike as a free gift in Jesus Christ. Eternal life in heaven is not earned or deserved, nor is it based upon ethnic descent or natural birth.

2. All human beings, Jews and Gentiles alike, are sinners, and, as such, they are under God’s judgment of death. Because God’s standard is perfect obedience and all are sinners, it is impossible for anyone to gain temporal peace or eternal life by his own efforts. Moreover, apart from Christ, there is no special divine favor upon any member of any ethnic group; nor, apart from Christ, is there any divine promise of an earthly land or a heavenly inheritance to anyone, whether Jew or Gentile. To teach or imply otherwise is nothing less than to compromise the Gospel itself.

3. God, the Creator of all mankind, is merciful and takes no pleasure in punishing sinners. Yet God is also holy and just and must punish sin. Therefore, to satisfy both his justice and his mercy, God has appointed one way of salvation for all, whether Jew or Gentile, in Jesus Christ alone.

4. Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man, came into the world to save sinners. In his death upon the cross, Jesus was the Lamb of God taking away the sin of the world, of Jew and of Gentile alike. The death of Jesus forever fulfilled and eternally ended the sacrifices of the Jewish temple. All who would worship God, whether Jew or Gentile, must now come to him in spirit and truth through Jesus Christ alone. The worship of God is no longer identified with any specific earthly sanctuary. He receives worship only through Jesus Christ, the eternal and heavenly Temple.

5. To as many as receive and rest upon Christ alone through faith alone, to Jews and Gentiles alike, God gives eternal life in his heavenly inheritance.

6. The inheritance promises that God gave to Abraham were made effective through Christ, Abraham’s True Seed. These promises were not and cannot be made effective through sinful man’s keeping of God’s law. Rather, the promise of an inheritance is made to those only who have faith in Jesus, the True Heir of Abraham. All spiritual benefits are derived from Jesus, and apart from him there is no participation in the promises. Since Jesus Christ is the Mediator of the Abrahamic Covenant, all who bless him and his people will be blessed of God, and all who curse him and his people will be cursed of God. These promises do not apply to any particular ethnic group, but to the church of Jesus Christ, the true Israel. The people of God, whether the church of Israel in the wilderness in the Old Testament or the Israel of God among the Gentile Galatians in the New Testament, are one body who through Jesus will receive the promise of the heavenly city, the everlasting Zion. This heavenly inheritance has been the expectation of the people of God in all ages.

7. Jesus taught that his resurrection was the raising of the True Temple of Israel. He has replaced the priesthood, sacrifices, and sanctuary of Israel by fulfilling them in his own glorious priestly ministry and by offering, once and for all, his sacrifice for the world, that is, for both Jew and Gentile. Believers from all nations are now being built up through him into this Third Temple, the church that Jesus promised to build.

8. Simon Peter spoke of the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus in conjunction with the final judgment and the punishment of sinners. Instructively, this same Simon Peter, the Apostle to the Circumcision, says nothing about the restoration of the kingdom to Israel in the land of Palestine. Instead, as his readers contemplate the promise of Jesus’ Second Coming, he fixes their hope upon the new heavens and the new earth, in which righteousness dwells.

9. The entitlement of any one ethnic or religious group to territory in the Middle East called the “Holy Land” cannot be supported by Scripture. In fact, the land promises specific to Israel in the Old Testament were fulfilled under Joshua. The New Testament speaks clearly and prophetically about the destruction of the second temple in A.D. 70. No New Testament writer foresees a regathering of ethnic Israel in the land, as did the prophets of the Old Testament after the destruction of the first temple in 586 B.C. Moreover, the land promises of the Old Covenant are consistently and deliberately expanded in the New Testament to show the universal dominion of Jesus, who reigns from heaven upon the throne of David, inviting all the nations through the Gospel of Grace to partake of his universal and everlasting dominion.

10. Bad Christian theology regarding the “Holy Land” contributed to the tragic cruelty of the Crusades in the Middle Ages. Lamentably, bad Christian theology is today attributing to secular Israel a divine mandate to conquer and hold Palestine, with the consequence that the Palestinian people are marginalized and regarded as virtual “Canaanites.” This doctrine is both contrary to the teaching of the New Testament and a violation of the Gospel mandate. In addition, this theology puts those Christians who are urging the violent seizure and occupation of Palestinian land in moral jeopardy of their own bloodguiltiness. Are we as Christians not called to pray for and work for peace, warning both parties to this conflict that those who live by the sword will die by the sword? Only the Gospel of Jesus Christ can bring both temporal reconciliation and the hope of an eternal and heavenly inheritance to the Israeli and the Palestinian. Only through Jesus Christ can anyone know peace on earth.

The promised Messianic kingdom of Jesus Christ has been inaugurated. Its advent marks the focal point of human history. This kingdom of the Messiah is continuing to realize its fullness as believing Jews and Gentiles are added to the community of the redeemed in every generation. The same kingdom will be manifested in its final and eternal form with the return of Christ the King in all his glory.

Of all the nations, the Jewish people played the primary role in the coming of the Messianic kingdom. New Testament Scripture declares that to them were given the oracles of God, the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises. Theirs are the fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and from them, according to the flesh, came Christ. Salvation is, indeed, of the Jews. While affirming the Scriptural teaching that there is no salvation outside of Christ, Christians should acknowledge with heartfelt sorrow and grief the frequent oppression of the Jews in history, sometimes tragically done in the name of the cross.

But what are we to make of the unbelief of Israel? Has their unbelief made the faithfulness of God without effect for them? No, God has not completely rejected the people of Israel, and we join the apostle Paul in his earnest prayer for the salvation of his Jewish kinsmen according to the flesh. There always has been and always will be a remnant that is saved. While not all Israel will experience the blessing of participation in the Messianic kingdom, yet Jews who do come to faith in Christ will share in his reign throughout the present age and into eternity. In addition, it is not as though the rejection of some in Israel for unbelief serves no purpose. On the contrary, because they were broken off in unbelief, the Gospel has gone to the Gentiles, who now, through faith, partake of the blessings to the fathers and join with believing Jews to constitute the true Israel of God, the church of Jesus Christ.

The present secular state of Israel, however, is not an authentic or prophetic realization of the Messianic kingdom of Jesus Christ. Furthermore, a day should not be anticipated in which Christ’s kingdom will manifest Jewish distinctives, whether by its location in “the land,” by its constituency, or by its ceremonial institutions and practices. Instead, this present age will come to a climactic conclusion with the arrival of the final, eternal phase of the kingdom of the Messiah. At that time, all eyes, even of those who pierced him, will see the King in his glory. Every knee will bow, and every tongue will declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. The kingdoms of this world will become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign forever and ever.

In light of the grand prophetic expectation of the New Testament, we urge our evangelical brothers and sisters to return to the proclamation of the free offer of Christ’s grace in the Gospel to all the children of Abraham, to pray for peace between Israelis and Palestinians, and to promise all humanitarian sympathy and practical support for those on both sides who are suffering in this current vicious cycle of atrocity and displacement. We also invite those Christian educators and pastors who share our convictions on the people of God, the land of Israel, and the impartiality of the Gospel to join their names with ours as signatories to this open letter.

The “Three-Fifths Clause” Helped End Slavery In America

“Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.”

–Three-fifths Clause: ARTICLE I, SECTION 2, CLAUSE 3 of the Constitution of the United States of America.

By: Pastor Greg Miller
3/31/2017

The Enumeration Clause
The Enumeration Clause is also referred to as the “Three-Fifths Clause” in the U.S. Constitution.  And it is a glaring example of the CULTURE OF LIES that exists in America, today.  A culture that completely misrepresents history, re-defines terms and flat out LIES in order to teach what they WANT to be true instead of actually teaching the truth as it stands.Have you been told that the “Three-Fifths Clause,” or the “Enumeration Clause,” as it is also known, was adopted because slaves were considered less-than-human?  If so, you were LIED to.  And most Americans persist in believing this lie.

Another distortion is to claim that this three-fifths clause GAVE slave states additional representation.  And such a claim is LUDICROUS.  The slave states came to the table demanding ALL slaves be FULLY counted as part of the state population.¹

The FACT is, the Three-Fifths Clause played an important role in ENDING SLAVERY in America.  Here is the true story… ²

Why Did The Founders Adopt The Three-Fifths Clause”?
During the Constitutional Convention, the anti-slavery state representatives became fully aware of the fact that whenever anything decided was proportioned according to population, the slave states would have a great advantage IF every slave was counted as part of that state’s population.

For example, while each state is allowed to send two Senators to that chamber the House of Representatives is proportioned according to the state population.  If slaves were counted fully and added to the population totals, then states like Virginia (whose population was nearly 40% SLAVES) would have additional congressman.  This would give the southern states a great advantage with dozens of additional votes in Congress.

For that reason, after contentious debate and disagreement, the representatives of the Constitutional Convention reached a compromise: Slaves would only count as three-fifth a person for population totalling purposes ONLY.

What Was The Result of The Three-Fifths Clause?
The result was immediately dramatic.  The slave population of America only accounted for 525,000 instead of 700,000.  The number of Congressmen from slave states was considerably smaller, especially when many bills were decided over a single vote!

The three-fifths clause was a substantial BLOW against slavery in America.  That is a FACT.

IF the Constitutional Convention had counted each slave fully as part of the state population, American history would have been MUCH different and slavery would not have ended anywhere NEAR the mid-19th century.  Between 1787 and the terrible “Civil War”, this Constitutional compromise favored emancipation of slavery by:

  • Resulting in laws that were anti-slavery, pro-abolitionist in nature.
  • The appointment of more anti-slavery judges.
  • Even the election of Congressmen was titled a bit more “anti-slavery” by this very clause.

It is simply a fact: the three-fifths clause was a GREAT move toward the end of Slavery in America.³  And every time you see someone mockingly denounce the founders for this “Enumeration Clause” that only counted slaves as three-fifths, especially whenever they pretend this was because slaves were seen as “less than human”?  You know you’re either dealing with an ignoramus or a liar.

Always Verify
That is the bottom line.  In this day of lies and distortion, Bible believing Christians simply cannot afford to assume that we are being told the truth.  We cannot afford to be LAZY.  We must TEST everything by the word of God (Acts 17:11) and try the spirits (1 John 4:1).  We must do our own research and VERIFY the claims made by textbooks, teachers, documentaries, news reporters, journalists, preachers, movies…

For More Information:

  1. Here is an example of someone making this completely fabricated claim:  “Three-Fifths Clause: Why Its Taint Persists,” Paul Finkelman (2/26/13).  (An example of how liberals call good, “evil” and evil “good”, see Isaiah 5:20).
  2. Compare Finkelman’s article to this article written by one of America’s great black authors, Walter E. Williams, “Was A Black Valued At 3/5th of A White?”

Was It Ornan or Araunah Who Owned The Threshingfloor?

1 Chronicles 21:15 (KJV) says, “And God sent an angel unto Jerusalem to destroy it: and as he was destroying, the LORD beheld, and he repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed, It is enough, stay now thine hand. And the angel of the LORD stood by the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.”

But,…

2 Samuel 24:16 (KJV) says, “And when the angel stretched out his hand upon Jerusalem to destroy it, the LORD repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed the people, It is enough: stay now thine hand. And the angel of the LORD was by the threshingplace of Araunah the Jebusite.”

So, which was it?  Was It Ornan or Araunah Who Owned The Threshingfloor?

The answer: BOTH.  Because it was, obviously, the same man.  And nothing more needs to be said.  There is no evidence to the contrary and plenty of examples of this same “phenomenon” in not only Biblical literature but ALL literature, both ancient and modern.

Do you ONLY go by one name?  Have you ONLY gone by one name your whole life?  Not even a nickname?  If so, you’d be a rare bird.

This author has gone by multiple names for various reasons.  My first name is Gregory.  But it is rare that anyone calls me that.  Most of the time I am known as just “Greg”.  But there there is the fact that there were several of us named Greg in the small town I went to.  So, while at school and in school functions, I would just be called “Miller” much of the time.  That’s my last name.

But you are probably aware of the fact that there are actually MORE “Millers” than there are boys named “Greg”.  So, it was only natural that I’d be labelled with other names.  And through the years (I won’t explain the reason behind each one), I have been known by the following names and most, if not all, are recorded in writing somewhere in documents: Gregory, Greg, Miller, Andy, Andrew, Fudge…

So, the fact that one account calls the owner of the Threshingfloor Ornan and a totally different author living in a different Kingdom (the North vs. the South) at a different time called that same owner by the name Araunah?  That’s supposed to be a “contradiction”?

Nonsense.  Only if you’re trying to find reasons to doubt the veracity of the Bible so you can feel comfortable in your sins and delude yourself into thinking that the Bible is false and that there is no “God of the Bible” who will one day judge you for your sins.

John 3:19 (KJV) “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”

Other Double-Named Characters In Scripture

There are other examples of this in the Bible, itself.  And these are not contradictions, either.  For example, at the Resurrection we see two names mentioned as having seen the Resurrected Jesus.

In the Gospel of John we see this:

John 21:1-2 (KJV) “After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself. There were together Simon Peter, …”
And in Paul’s Gospel declaration in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4,  he begins listing those who saw the Resurrected Jesus and we see this:

1 Corinthians 15:5 (KJV) “And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:”

So, Jesus was seen by Peter AND by Cephas.  So, that’s two eyewitnesses, right?  No.  Peter and Cephas are the same man.

Other examples?

  • Lucifer and Satan
  • Jacob and Israel
  • Reuel and Jethro (Father of Zipporah, Moses’ First Wife)
  • Gideon and  Jerubbaal
  • Daniel and Belteshazzar
  • Hananiah and Shadrach
  • Mishael and Meshach
  • Azariah and Abed-Nego
  • Immanuel and Jesus
  • Saul and Paul
  • Thomas and  Didymus

And there are MANY more examples, but this demonstrates the reality.  There is no “contradiction” here.

Is Ezekiel 39:2 in the KJV a mistranslation?

bible

Ezekiel 39:2: Is the King James reading of “…leave but the sixth part of thee” a mistranslation?

The new translations (including the so-called “New King James”) have all changed this verse.

KJV: “And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee…”

NASB: “And I will turn you around, drive you on, take you up…”

NIV: “I will turn you around and drag you along.”

Amplified: “And I will turn you about and will lead you on, …”

NKJV: “And I will turn you around and lead you on, …”

Most prophecy teachers “prefer” this new translation rendering and they do so simply because it seems to fit their idea of what SHOULD happen as a result of the war described in Ezekiel 38-39. But this is a dangerous way to handle God’s word. We will see, in a moment, that their idea of what SHOULD happen is dead WRONG.

In his book on Ezekiel 38-39 titled, “The Coming Islamic Invasion of Israel,” Mark Hitchcock writes on page 93, “God will come to rescue His helpless, overwhelmed people using four means to totally destroy Russia and her Islamic allies.” Then, in his footnote, he writes:

“31. In Ezekiel 39:2, the King James Version reads as if only five-sixths of the invading army will be destroyed. “And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee” (emphasis added). However, most modern versions translate the Hebrew verb as “lead thee on” (ASV), “drive you on” (NASB), “drag you along” (NIV), and “drive you” (NLT). These translations are preferred over the King James Version. See Charles Lee Feinberg, The Prophecy of Ezekiel (Chicago: Moody Press, 1969, 228.”

[We have left the quote exactly as given by Hitchcock, including his use of italics and his parenthetic comments.]

This is how this verse is handled by the typical new evangelical prophecy teacher. And it is a clear ERROR in judgment on their part.

First of all, the Hebrew “shawshaw” is of an unclear root of origin. For any translator to pretend to be translating “shawshaw” (or any other Hebrew root, for that matter) without consulting the CONTEXT would be insane. And to know the context of this battle scene and translate the passage that, IN ANY WAY, requires God to “totally destroy” the armies of Ezekiel 38-39 is an ERROR and MISTRANSLATION of the highest order in these new translations.

The context is a battle that precedes Armageddon.

In Revelation 16, the Battle of Armageddon is described. This battle is NOT the battle of Ezekiel 38-39 which has already taken place BEFORE Armageddon. That is a fact that Hitchcock, Walvoord, Pentecost and the majority of evangelical dispensationalists agree upon. So, how can they also miss the fact that all the nations listed in Ezekiel 38:1-6 (that have been defeated by God at some point before or DURING the Great Tribulation) gather AGAIN with the rest of the world against Israel at the END of the Great Tribulation???

Revelation 16:14, “…which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Revelation 16:16, “And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.”

Summary
God’s word says that there will be a battle involving what is clearly a Russian-Islamic confederacy at some point before or during the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, also called the Great Tribulation. It is not our purpose to discuss the timing of this war, but most dispensationalists agree on this much.

God’s word also says that there will be a gathering of ALL nations (not just Russia and the “Islamic Nation”) at the Battle of Armageddon (see also Psalm 2). This battle happens only a few years (at the most) after the battle described in Ezekiel 38-39.

The King James Version, once again, demonstrates it’s supremacy above all other English translations by leaving a sizeable but utterly de-humanized number of enemy (Islamic and Russian) troops alive at the end of the battle in Ezekiel 38-39. They return to those who remain at home: The elderly, their wives, their children and others that may be disabled or simply “conscientious objectors” who have stayed at home and prayed for Allah to wipe out the Jews and grant victory to his armies as they fought a Holy Jihad.

To the dismay of the ENTIRE population of earth (with only a small number of gentile believers alive at that time), Allah’s armies fail and the Jews survive. Only one out of six Jihadists and Ruskies make the trip home, after the war of Ezekiel 38-39 is complete.

For several years, the anger, frustration, shame and hatred will boil like a pot stew of emotional and spiritual poison. And God will USE that to gather their emaciated, shell-shocked troops to join “hand in hand” with the more powerful, untested, unbeaten armies of Antichrist and fight one last battle against the Jewish State (Proverbs 11:21).

“These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings; and they that are with him are called, chosen, and faithful.” (Revelation 17:14)

ONLY THE KING JAMES BIBLE is translated in a way that doesn’t make God out to be a LIAR.

Baptists Teaching “Doctrines of Devils”

Professing Christians abusing God’s word to bind divorced believers…

The Bible says, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.” (1 Timothy 4:1)

Paul warns that one of the marks of apostasy in these last days will be in the practice of “forbidding men to marry.” (1 Timothy 4:2-3) This is called a “DOCTRINE OF DEVILS” (see verse 1).

Roman Catholic Doctrine of Devils Rome has forbidden men to marry since before the 6th century. This pagan practice was natural for the Roman Catholic “church” whose practice has always been to swallow pagan peoples by adopting their practices and simply modifying them as necessary. For example, pagan temples were simply converted into Catholic cathedrals and the idols renamed after Biblical characters or Roman Catholic “saints”.

Likewise, Rome adopted the pagan priesthood which follows the pagan priestly law of celibacy among the priests. There is absolutely no Biblical basis for Rome’s celibacy laws. Their practicing of forbidding their so-called priests to marry is a doctrine of devils.

Eastern Orthodox Doctrine of Devils  The Eastern Orthodox cult allow priests to marry, but once they become what they call “bishops” they cannot marry if they have not already done so and they cannot remarry if their spouse leaves or dies. This form of religious torture is no less satanic.

Imagine being married. Your wife dies. You are now condemned to a life of solitude for as long as you live, or to find some other occupation for your life.

Any way you slice it, Rome, Orthodoxy and some BAPTISTS teach a doctrine of devils.

The Baptist Version of Celibacy

In case you are not aware of it, some Baptist churches forbid men (and women) to marry if they are EVER divorced for ANY reason. This represents a small number of Baptist pastors and churches, but is a horrible blasphemy against the grace of God and provides for opportunities for the enemies of the Gospel to paint New Testament Baptist churches in a negative light, as many don’t realize that the number of these Baptists is very small.

God says: “But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.” (1 Corinthians 7:15)

In spite of God’s clear instruction, some Baptists reject God’s word and place people under bondage, even if that person is suffering the loss of a rebellious spouse who has deserted them or become sexually involved with another person. Whatever the motivation these Baptists have for adding to God’s word and teaching this horrible doctrine, it is a Satanic doctrine and practice.

Still other Baptists teach that divorced men can no longer serve in ministry, even if the divorce was due to adultery committed by their spouse!

Adding To The Word of God

Revelation 22:18 warns, “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book.”

One of the most horrible examples of men ADDING to God’s word is found in the “interpretations” of 1 Timothy 3:2. This passage says, “A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife…”

Now, first we must deal with what is said. Do you see anything about divorce and/or remarriage in that passage? No, it’s not there. God did not say anything about divorce and/or remarriage in this passage. How can these Baptists add to God’s word like that and claim to be BIBLE believers?

Read it out loud. Did you say the word, “divorce” or “remarried” while reading 1 Timothy 3:2? No, because it’s not there.

It’s that simple.

Proverbs 30:6 says, “Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.”

I urge you not to add to God’s word.

“Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.” 1 Timothy 4:16

The Spirit of the Pharisees


Most discerning believers will pick up on a prevailing pharisaical spirit among the men who teach this doctrine of devils. They have also been blessed with a faithful wife. But instead of simply being thankful, they also become PROUD.

“Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.” Proverbs 16:5

Church Politics

Many of the men who teach this doctrine of devils do so, not by conviction but as the result of coersion, intimidation and their own fear of losing their associations. I have had men tell me that they understand the truth on this issue only to then say to me, “But I can’t teach THAT. They’d hang me at high noon the next day!”

The truth of the matter is, church politics is as bad in fundamentalist circles today as it is in apostate denominations. This explains why God has been judging so many fundamental churches and preachers the past three decades. If you are not aware of the fall of dozens of fundamental churches and pastors, exposed for their hypocrisy and sin, then you haven’t been out much!

Many men compromise their convictions by saying, “Well, it’s the historic position of our association/denomination/school/church and I’m not going to try to change decades or centuries of tradition.” That is a sad ‘stand’. Such men are joining with their Pharisaical brethren who, “made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.” (Matthew 15:6)

The Commandment of God

Many of these folks teaching doctrines of devils like to blame Jesus Christ. They take the words of Jesus from Matthew 5:32 and ignore the context and the clear teaching, as well as the comments of other Biblical writers.

In Matthew 5:32, Jesus said, “But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.”

Now, watch this closely. Some of you reading this won’t believe what I’m about to say, but it is TRUE. These modern-day Pharisees try to say that Jesus is telling us that the woman who is divorced is forbidden from marrying UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! I am NOT making this up.

What the blind bats seem to get hung up on is the 6th grade English of our infallible King James Bible. Jesus is saying, clearly, that a man should not divorce a woman unless she is a fornicator. And if a woman IS divorced for committing fornication, THEN she is guilty of committing adultery and causing her new “husband” to commit adultery by marrying in that state or condition.

Is that clear enough?

Countless thousands of believers have suffered divorce through no fault of their own. Some have a judgment of divorce granted to their rebellious spouse on the unbiblical grounds of “incompatibility”. They are divorced against their will. Others divorce on Biblical grounds because of an unrepentant adulterer or adulteress.

Then, to add insult to injury, these vicitims of the sin of their spouses and the sin of a depraved, fallen family court system wake up and return to churches seeking support, only to receive rejection. They have a preacher teaching doctrines of devils condemn them to a life of loneliness, forbidding them to marry. All because that “preacher” has the brain function of the typical farm animal.

Those Forbidden To Marry By The Commandment of God

There IS someone who is fordibben by God’s word to remarry and these are the ONLY people forbidden to marry: Those who have divorced and/or abandoned a husband or wife WITHOUT Biblical grounds.

Paul spells this out in 1 Corinthians 7:10-11 saying, “And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.”

When Paul says, “Yet not I, but the Lord…” he is giving you the INSPIRED interpretation of the words of Jesus Christ in Matthew 5:32!

Paul says that JESUS says that anyone divorcing on unbiblical grounds is condemned to deal with the repercussions of their sin or find themselves living in a state of adultery if they go on to marry, again. That is what Jesus SAID and that is what Paul tells us that Jesus said.

I urge you to IGNORE the pompous embiciles who may be torturing you with false doctrine on this matter.

Men With A Diabolical Mission

If one were to grant the benefit of the doubt, this egregious error against God and His word may seem to simply stem from handling God’s word carelessly. But I have yet to meet anyone who taught this that didn’t have an agenda behind his “interpretation”.

The doctrinal statement usually says something like this: “…because of the teaching of the scriptures a divorced person can never marry(which would be to commit adultery), be a pastor or a deacon.”

(Taken from this local Baptist church statement of faith)

Fishbowl Fundamentalists

Those who teach doctrines of devils, forbidding men to marry, MUST add to God’s word. It is clear to the honest reader that 1 Timothy 3:2 is telling those with multiple wives or concubines that they cannot keep more than one wife and remain in ministry leadership. That is what it SAYS.

But some American preachers judge God’s word out of context and in light of their own modern circumstances. So, unless they live in Utah, Arizona or Nevada where Mormon men practice polygamy by not legally marrying more than one wife, the modern Pharisee refuses to take God’s word at face value. He just can’t see why Paul would waste ink talking about polygamy, bigomy and concubinage when you don’t see that sort of thing in the Bible belt or in the northern states, at all.

These men live in a fish bowl and betray their utter ignorance of the world situation in Paul’s day and in our own.

Context, Context, Context

In Paul’s day, concubinage was widespread and continued to be in practice in Rome for several centuries. The 2nd century emperor Commodus had a Christian concubine named Marcia, as one researcher notes, “In those days, the (Roman) Church considered concubinage marriage as long as the Christian concubine acted as if it were.”[Notes on Church History A Church History Timeline Compiled by R. Grant Jones, parenthesis mine.]

By the fourth century, a man named Mohammad would claim to be a prophet and would start his own religion that included the practice of concubinage. This has been a continual issue for missionaries going all over the world, especially when dealing with the nations of Islam. Mohammad set the standard of having multiple wives and the Muslim man able to care for as many as four women is permitted under Sharia Law to have that many wives.

Today, that would mean that among the 1 Billion+ Muslims, when you lead a man to Christ, you have to begin to lead him to correct his situation if it involves multiple wives. And I can guarantee you that missionaries to Muslims run to 1 Timothy 3:2 for support when a convert claims to be called to ministry while still living with more than one wife!

And here in America, those with ministries in the western states especially need the sound interpretation of 1 Timothy 3:2 for dealing with Mormon converts. My sister-in-law is a nurse in the pre-natal unit of a large hospital in a western state and she has told heart-wrenching stories of the children born to child brides of closet polygamists. And then there are the many stories told by missionaries of seeing men arriving to get their newborn and “wife”, with several other wives along for the “celebration”.

The need to uphold the standard of monogamous marriage is greater today than it ever has been. And these abusers of God’s word who take 1 Tomthy 3:2 out of context, adding to God’s word and teaching doctrines of devils, are bringing confusion and dissaray to the their hearers and causing undue harm and suffering to people of whom this passage does not even speak.

1 Timothy 3:2 has NOTHING to do with the Biblical and legitimate practice of divorce and EVERYTHING to do with the practice of concubines.

Historical Facts Regarding Polygamy, Bigamy, Concubinage

Here are some encyclopedic and historical quotes demonstrating what we have just said about the need for clear Biblical teaching regarding those with more than one wife (polygamy, bigamy, concubinage, etc.):

Concubinage In Ancient Rome

“Concubines were permitted in ancient Greece and their children were legitimate if recognized by their fathers. Roman law also recognized concubines. Concubinage is still found in Islamic countries.”

“In Rome in 18 BC, in order to encourage regular marriages, the Lex Julia de maritandis ordinibus stipulated that only women of low rank should be chosen as concubines.”

Concubinage in Modern Asia

“Concubinage still exists today in various forms. Women are not forced into it like they were, and it is still mostly among Asian wealthy class. Having a concubine or mistress is accepted as part of the culture in Asia.”

Concubinage in Modern Islam

“Islamic law permits polygamy and concubinage. The Quran is quite explicit on this. It says a man may have up to four wives and as many concubines as he wishes and can afford. Concubines are female slaves whom it is permitted to use sexually.”

Bernard Lewis, ” “What Went Wrong: The Clash between Islam and Modernity in the Middle East,” Harper Perennial (January 7, 2003), [quotation taken from, “A surprising view of women and Islam…,” by by Charlotte Hays, http://www.iwf.org/inkwell/show/17199.html].

Satan’s Best Weapon Against The Ministry

COMING SOON

Judgment Day

But regardless of the mindset or method to their madness, these men are all guilty of teaching a doctrine of devils, forbidding to marry. And on top of this, they have added to God’s words.

“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book.” Revelation 22:18

Muhammad’s Demon: He Originally Thought He Was Possessed

normal_Islam_Mohammed_1

The Muslim religion originated in the mind of a man named Muhammad. He appears to have been plagued by demons from very early in his life. Robert Payne was an historian of the mid-20th century whose impeccable credentials make his documented accounts of the invention and spread of Islam impossible to deny with any sincerity of protest.

The Childhood Demons

In his work titled, “Holy Sword: The Story of Islam from Muhammad to the Present,” (Copyright owned by Payne, 1959) he provides hundreds of pages of detail, documentation and historical data. In his chapter titled, “The Messenger of God,” he sites pro-Islamic sources and the accounts of faithful friends of Muhammad while describing the birth and early life of Muhammad. In his detailed account of the visions that Muhammad claimed to have experienced which led to the creation of a new religion called Islam, Payne tells us that these experiences had Muhammad and others very close to him convinced that he was under demonic influence! We quote Payne:

“Muhammad was about five years old when he suffered the first of the strange visitations which came to him at intervals throughout his life.

“He was walking in a field with one of Halima’s sons when he suddenly fell down, shouting as he sprawled on the ground that two men in white garments were splitting open his belly and stirring it up.

“Asked what happened, he spoke of two angels who had cut open his belly, searching for something, though he did not know what it was. The shepherd was afraid he was possessed by a devil and said he should be returned to Mecca before his malady became the talk of the town.” 1 (Emphasis Ours)

In the life of Jesus, the Pharisees dropped the accusation that he “had a demon” but not because Jesus appeared to be demon-possessed. There were no demonic visions in the life of Jesus. Jesus never writhed in agony claiming angels were torturing Him.

The accusation from the Pharisees came simply as a result of what Jesus TAUGHT. And they thought that if they used scare tactics, people might run from Jesus. But their accusation was so stunningly empty, that even those of their own ranks said, “There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings. And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him? Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?” (John 10:19-21, kjv)

We would do well to note that not only did Muhammad resemble those who Jesus cast demons out of, but that Muhammad never once healed a blind man or made a lame man to walk. Muhammad was not a man of miracles. But, as we shall see, he was a man of murder and mayhem.

The Adulthood Demons of an Illiterate, Suicidal “Prophet”

The childhood demonic visions continued in the life of Muhammad right into his adult life. It was at this time that he refers to the visions as being “great” and upon which he would base many of his new doctrines and practices in the new religion that he was inventing. There was a problem, however. Muhammad was ILLITERATE. He could not read or write. But, conveniently, he had a vision in which he was supposedly given the supernatural ability to read.

Again, we quote Payne:

“As Muhammad told the story of his first great revelation, he was lying asleep or in a trance, wrapped in his cloak, when he heard a voice saying: “Read!” He answered: “I cannot read” The voice said again: “Read!” He answered: “I do not know how to read.” Once more, this time with terrible force, the voice said: “Read!” He answered: “What can I read?” The voice thundered:

Read in the name of your Lord, the Creator, Who created man from a clot of blood! …” 2

Whoever this visitor was, he was speaking falsehood. Was man created from “a clot of blood”? Absolutely not. Genesis 2:7 (kjv) clearly says, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground…” This is scientifically verified. Man is made of the same composition of a hand of dirt. You basically take the chemicals and minerals of dirt, add water and you have a man…if God is the chemist, of course.

Payne continues:

“He read the words, though he had never read before,…
“Trembling, he went out of the cave onto the hillside, not knowing what had happened to him, and afraid he must be a sha’ir or possessed.” 3

How convenient that he could read during this vision. And how strange that he would come away thinking that he was DEMON POSSESSED. You will never find an example of a prophet of God receiving a message from God only to wonder if he was full of the devil. But Muhammad was so convinced of the fact that he was possessed by demons that he contemplated suicide! Payne explains:

“He was in such agony of mind that he thought of throwing himself off a precipice, and then he heard a voice form heaven saying, “O, Muhammad! You are Allah’s messenger, and I am Gabriel!” 4

Who is this “Gabriel”?

One thing is for certain, this was not the Gabriel who announced the birth of Jesus Christ (Luke 1:26-27). The Biblical Gabriel would never have uttered false information (ie., “from a clot of blood”) and would never point the world to “Allah’s Messenger”. Gabriel is the messenger of Jesus Christ.

But the Bible does tell us that Satan and fallen angels do visit people and pose as something they are not. The apostle Paul warned, “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:13-14, kjv)

Could it be that Satan posed as Gabriel, possessing Muhammad and creating a false religion that would damn it’s followers to an eternal Hell and cause the murder of millions of Jews and Christians over the past 1400 years?

Muhammad The False Prophet

As a result of these and other “visions”, Muhammad would tell his hearers that they should junk their idols (as he did in Mecca) and the God of the Bible (as he did in Yathrib) and follow only Allah. Ironically, the TRUE prophet called Moses warned of men like Muhammad who would come on the scene to deceive people.

Moses said, “If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. (Deuteronomy 13:1-3, kjv)

Muhammad flunked the test.

“Violence and terrorism are endemic to Islam. It makes “converts” by the threat of death and holds them by fear. The penalty for attempting to leave this “religion of peace” is death. Worldwide terrorism is encouraged by a covering and obsequious West that has licked the boots of Islam to keep the oil flowing. Truth, justice and right have been sacrificed to evil on the altar of compromise, intimidation and fear.” —The Berean Call: Q&A, page 6 of the March 2006 edition (Volume XXI No. 3). www.thebereancall.org

 

Islamic Dance On Our Dead

“And those who disbelieve shall not cease to be in doubt concerning it until the hour overtakes them suddenly, or there comes on them the chastisement of a destructive day.” –Surah 22:55

“`The issue is decided. Muslims believe in the Day of Judgment and that dying as a martyr has its reward – going to heaven – and that a martyr is alive in the eyes of God.” —Sheik Ikrema Sabri , Jerusalem’s top Muslim cleric and an appointee of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat as reported by Associated Press Reporter Donna Abu-Nasr, September 16, 2001.

September 11, 2001. Islamic Fundamentalists hi-jack four American domestic jetliners filled with approximately 266 passengers and crew. They slammed two of these jetliners into the World Trade Twin-Towers, filled with as many as 50,000 hard working Americans and tourists. Within two hours, the towers are completely destroyed as they collapse filled with untold thousands including hundreds of New York firefighters and possibly more than 50 NYPD and Port Authority officers. Another jetliner smashes into the Pentagon in Washington D.C., with more than 100 suspected dead. The third jetliner appears to have went down in southern Pennsylvania as brave American passengers fought for control of the plane. All on board are dead.

Within minutes, Palestinians are shown dancing in the streets and praising “Allah” while handing out candy and gifts. By Thursday, the PLO is threatening the lives of the Associated Press in Israel and others who dare televise the video of these celebrations since it was demonstrating the hypocrisy of a terrorist like Arafat “condemning” what is nothing more than his own terrorist tactics on a larger scale. Arafat is now in Hell with the 9-1-1 highjackers.

A sober fact is that the men who perpetrated this crime against the United States of America were simply fulfilling the call of their religious “holy books”. These Islamic Fundamentalists know their Quran and Hadith.

“Those who believe do battle for the cause of Allah; and those who disbelieve do battle for the cause of idols. So fight the minions of the devil.” –Surah 4:76

Ironically, at the National Day of Prayer service, Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi read Surah 35:7: ,p> “”Those that lay the plots of evil, for them is a terrible penalty; and the plotting of such will be not abide.”

But IN CONTEXT, the “evil” spoken of here is said to be “unbelievers” not terrorists (see Surah 35:7). As an American who rejects Islam, Muhammad and the Quran, I was offended and I knew 99% of those listening had no idea what they were hearing because they are so relentlessly fed LIES by ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and most mainstream media outlets.

One example of the ignorance of Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings, etc., is the manner in which they are continuously filtering LIES into the American mind, claiming that Islamic fundamentalists are not really following the teachings of Mohammed, the Quran, the Hadith or the overall spirit of the Islamic religion. Do you believe that? You probably do since most people believe lies as long as they remain ignorant of the facts. The following quotations (including the three major English translations of the Quran) demonstrate the fact that Islam is a bloody religion if it’s “holy books” are actually believed and followed:

———————————————————-

“The mosque is often the starting place for demonstration and political revolution, and the Friday sermon is not only a religious practice but it often fervently calls upon the faithful to take political action in the name of Allah.” –Abd-al-Masih, Islamic schola,, “Wer 1st Allah im Islam?” (Villach), p. 32, as cited in Elishua Davidson, “Islam, Israel and the Last Days (Harvest House Publishers, 1991), p. 82.

“The media must urge the Muslims to launch Jihad (Holy War)…united in the confrontation with the Jews and those who support them [i.e., America, Christians, etc.].” –Saudi King Fah, quoted by Lamb in, “The Arabs,” (Vintage Books, 1987, 0. 102).

But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. -Surah 9:5

“We must never imagine that such Muslims are being unnecessarily wicked. They are simply being faithful to their religion. The fact is never hidden as to the attitude a good Muslim should have towards Christians and Jews. In fact, much of the incitement to violence and war in the whole of the Quran is directed against the Jews and Christians who rejected what they felt to be the strange god Mohammed was trying to preach.” –former Muslim and Islamic scholar G.J. O. Moshay, “Who Is This Allah?” (Dorchester House Publications, 1994, p. 24).

Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith. But if they cease, Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. -Surah 2:190-192

“Today, there is not a government in the Arab world, including Saudi Arabia’s ultra-religious one, that does not fear militant Islam as the major challenge to its stability.” –David Lamb, “The Arabs,” (Vintage Books, 1987), p. 212.

Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. -Surah 9:29

“There is no comparable passage in the (Christian) New Testament. It would be impossible to find in the life of Jesus either precedent or approval of taking political hostages or assassination or any other barbarism. No normally intelligent spokesman for the Christian faith would try to justify such actions—certainly not with a New Testament in hand.” C. Donald Cole, “Christian Perspectives on the News,” (3-17-96 edition).

Go ye forth, (whether equipped) lightly or heavily, and strive and struggle, with your goods and your persons, in the cause of Allah. That is best for you, if ye (but) knew. -Surah 9:41

“In fact, during each of the three Ramadans I spent in the Middle East, there seemed to be a marked, progressive increase in the number of Arabs who unflinchingly abided by all the restriction the Koran set forth for observing the holy month… Even diplomats, professors and businessmen had fallen in with the pack—for public consumption, at least. And that movement toward complete religious obedience is, I think, the most significant trend in the Arab world today. The Middle East is becoming…in the process, less tolerant.” –David Lamb, “The Arabs,” (Vintage Books, 1987), p. 104.

Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who reject Faith Fight in the cause of Evil: So fight ye against the friends of Satan: feeble indeed is the cunning of Satan. -Surah 4:76

Muhammad: “He who dies without having fought, or having felt it to be his duty, will die guilty of a kind of hypocrisy. …There is no emigration after the Conquest, but only jihad…so when you are summoned to fight, go forth. …The last hour will not come before the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them.” –Muhammad in Mishkat al Masabih Sh. M. Ashsraf (1990), pp. 147, 721, 810-811, 1130, etc.

The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter.” -Surah 5:33

“The Biblical Archeological Review (Jan.-Feb. 2001) features an article entitled “Holy Targets.” It described the October 7, 2000, destruction of Joseph’s tomb: ‘The limestone memorial shown here was built in the 1860’s, perhaps on the site of an earlier structure. Recent press photos record its destruction: Palestinians destroy Hebrew texts found inside…throw Molotov cocktails at the tomb…and lay claim to the building, which they have begun to dismantle stone by stone… The tomb was later set on fire.’ All of this militancy raises a sobering question about the estimated six millions Muslims in America—In the event of a war will they fight for us or against us?” –Dr. Larry Spargimino, “Islam: The Fury And The Facts,” 2001 Prophetic Observer: Southwest Radio Church, http://www.swrc.com.

O ye who believe! Turn not (for friendship) to people on whom is the Wrath of Allah, of the Hereafter they are already in despair, just as the Unbelievers are in despair about those (buried) in graves. -Surah 60:13

The Hadith calls Jihad [“holy war”]—“the best method of earning [blessings] both spiritual and temporal. If victory is won, there is enormous booty of a country, which cannot be equaled to any other source of income. If there is defeat or death, there is everlasting paradise.” –Mishkat Masabih, Volume II, p. 253.

These are the Ayats of Revelation,- of a Qur’an that makes things clear. Again and again will those who disbelieve, wish that they had bowed (to Allah’s will) in Islam. Leave them alone, to enjoy (the good things of this life) and to please themselves: let (false) hope amuse them: soon will knowledge (undeceive them). Never did We destroy a population that had not a term decreed and assigned beforehand. Neither can a people anticipate its term, nor delay it. -Surah 15:1-4

“Bombing the World Trade Center. Gunning down a radical rabbi. Plots to blow up U. N. headquarters and assassinate Egypt’s president at a Park Avenue hotel. All were parts of a conspiracy… to wage holy war against the U.S. government—proof that mid-east terror had taken root in America. At least since 1989… a radical Islamic group has targeted the United States as an infidel government supporting other infidels such as Egypt and Israel…” –The Orange County Register, January 9, 1995, NEWS 8.

Generations before you We destroyed when they did wrong: their messengers came to them with clear-signs, but they would not believe! thus do We requite those who sin! -Surah 10:13

“Such terrorist attacks are increasing, yet the media continues to avoid the fact that Islam itself is what inspires the determination to destroy Israel and all who support her. Terrorism will persist in obedience to the Koran, which demands the conversion or forceful subjugation of all non-Muslims. The situation is only made that much worse when the truth is suppressed and misinformation is promoted.” –Dave Hunt, “A Cup of Trembling,” (Harvest House Publishers, 1995), pg. 212.

—————————————-

There is no doubt. Islam teaches violence against non-Muslims. Those Muslim believers who are non-violent simply choose not to follow the teachings of their own “holy book”. We are thankful for these “liberal” Muslims who spare our lives IN SPITE of the call from the Quran, Hadith and many of their leaders to treat us violently as enemies of God. But that does not nullify the fact that the religion of Islam leads it’s true believers to embrace the tactics and actions of terrorists and terrorist-supporters like the PLO’s Yassar Arafat, Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd, etc.

We must also speak against those who dare compare Muslim terrorism with “the Crusades” and claim that “Christians” are guilty of such atrocities.. The Crusades took place during the Dark Ages—called such because people were illiterate and not taught the Scripture, hence the “dark” age. The Crusades took place when a large number of non-Christian and ignorant Roman Catholics followed the orders of a few demon-possessed Popes. They trudged through Europe raping and killing Jews AND Muslims in an effort to conquer the Holy Land for purely POLITICAL purposes. These were not “Christian terrorists”. They were anti-Christian, Roman Catholic terrorists. They did what they did IN SPITE of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Muslim terrorists do what they do as A RESULT of the life and teachings of Muhammad.

And in Muslim nations where Sharia, or Islamic Law, has been adopted, non-Muslims are persecuted, detained and even KILLED every single day simply for worshipping a God other than the moon God of Islam, Allah. In these Muslim nations with Sharia, women are treated like pets who must cover themselves from head to toe, walk two steps behind their husbands and are only allowed in public alone if they have written permission from their husband!

Not all Arabs are Muslim. It is foolish to hate a race of people simply because of the crimes of a small number. Neither should we hate anyone for simply being Muslim. A minority of Muslims actually follow the Quran and for that we are thankful. We denounce any and all acts of violence perpetrated against people based upon race or religion. We must LOVE all Arabs and all Muslims. As Jesus taught us, “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” (Matthew 5:44)

But the dishonesty of our media, the misinformation being spread by religious liberals and most politicians of all stripes MUST BE CHALLENGED.

But let one thing be clear: Our news media must be overhauled with NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN TURNED OFF AND TUNED OUT. They have attacked John Ashcroft as a “nut” for being a born again Christian and taking part in Bible study at work. They have painted Ivy League graduate George W. Bush as “dumb”, which means they must think most of us are plain idiots since we don’t have his level of education and training. They refer to those us who speak FACTS as being “intolerant” and spreading “hate speech”.

If truth has come to equal “hate”, then I am guilty as charged. “Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?” (Galatians 4:16)

I urge you to seek alternative news sources: FOX News, Christian World News, WND.com, worldmag.com, Newsmax.com, etc.

See another perspective on “Muhammad, Islam and Terrorism,” at http://answering-islam.org.uk/Silas/terrorism.htm

“Muhammad established Islam with terrorism, attacking caravans and villages for plunder and killing all who would not convert to Islam. Had bombs been available, he surely would have used them. Islam was spread from France to China by violent conquest at th cost of millions of lives. Today’s riots are consistent with Islam’s history.” —The Berean Call: Q&A, page 6 of the March 2006 edition (Volume XXI No. 3). www.thebereancall.org

A Message To Muslims

If you are an American Muslim reading these pages on the religion of Islam, we ask that you consider the following:

1. These pages are FACTUAL. What you read may anger you because truth paints a very ugly picture of Islam. Please understand that we do not believe the Islamic people are the problem. It’s the religion that causes the people to become a problem as they follow the plain teachings of the Koran and the example of Mohammad. Also, do not expect us to remove anything from these pages simply because it offends you. The truth offends. We will only remove or edit information when/if you are able to document that we are in error. An opinion does not matter to us. Truth matters.

2. We love YOU. Although you may choose to take this personally and become angry at us, we truly do love you. It is our prayer that you will see the horrendous tragedy that the false religion of Muhammad is to you personally and to the world at large, and that you will respond by embracing the One who is “the way, the truth and the life” (John 14:6). You can only approach God through His Son, Jesus Christ (Acts 4: 12). We would accept you with open arms. Our only prerequisite is that you reject the lies of Islam and embrace the Savior.

3. Check us OUT. We do not ask that you simply take our word for anything. Christians are commanded to study the word (2 Timothy 2:15) and to compare our words to the words of the Bible (Acts 17:11). We provide our sources so that you can look them up. We provide other references that you can use to check out what you are reading on this site. If you really care about the truth, you will find yourselves falling into the arms of Jesus and rejecting all lies, including the lie of Islam.

Today, terrorists have propaganda and legal front groups like CAIR (Center for American Islamic Relations) who distort the truth and decry any public rebuke of Islam. They have succeeded in a few cases of shutting down and silencing opponents. But rest assured, they will not silence the Church of Jesus Christ. Hundreds of God’s prophetic voices are trumpeting these same truths as you see them on these pages. We will not bow. We will not be silenced. We will remain faithful unto death.

Madame Helena Blavatsky: Founder of the Intelligent Design Movement

The fad in compromise today is to try to win over the evolutionists by not using the Name of our Creator, Jesus Christ. Following a Freemason model of teaching a Creator, “to be named later” (or not at ALL), many Christians feel that they have the best of both worlds: scientific acceptance of theistic creation. In truth, they have neither.

First of all, no self-loving Darwinian is going to give an inch in this debate regardless of how far into the land of fairy-tales for grown ups he or she must go. Just read some of the late Stephen Jay Gould’s theory of “punctuated equilibrium” or the fictional follow up found in Elizabeth Vrba’s “turnover pulse hypothesis” for the best in science FICTION. No room for “intelligent design” here. Only room for godless hypothesis without a shred of science to support it.

Secondly, God isn’t wringing His hands in hopes of an anonymous seat at the table among enemies. He is God. He has a Name. I don’t even refer to my pet lab Sadie as just “dog”. But that’s how these ID believers want to refer to God. Only they can’t even name his “species”. Not only can we not use His Name in the discussion of origins. We can’t even refer to the existence of such a Being. It’s just “intelligence”.

Something barks. We won’t call her Sadie. We won’t call her “dog”. We won’t even speak of her as a living being. She is just “annoying yap”. That’s what Intelligent Design does to God. Something I wouldn’t even do to my dog.

 

Intelligent Occultism

You may or may not have heard of this thing called, “the new age movement”. It’s not new. It’s as old as the first form of false religion (Cain). It is idolatry and otherwise ungodly worship and doctrine. It’s the Occult.

The modern Occult movement has been tagged with the name “new age” by it’s own propagandists. And most of these modern Nimrods and Jezebels hark back to the writings of a 19th century demoniac named Madame Blavatsky. Her writings are best known in, “The Secret Doctrine.” [1]

According to Reed Carson of the Theosophy Foundation of Georgia, Madame Blavatsky was the first to use the term, “Intelligent Design.” On a web page credited to Carson we read, “Helena Blavatsky, in 1888, was the first person to use the phrase “intelligent design” to convey her understanding of evolution. She used the phrase to convey the idea that the evolution of the species was guided by an underlying purposeful intelligence in nature. This intelligence is different from the “God” of theistic religions. Orthodox science opposes the whole notion of any intelligence design and insists on chance without any guiding direction. This makes her view a distinct alternative to both religion and science.” [2]

In her book, “The Secret Doctrine,” Blavatsky is referencing a French anthropologist named Bourges who gave a lecture titled, “Evolutionary Psychology,” in which he mixes evolution with spiritism. Blavatsky remarks:

 

“He explains the origin of the variety of organic forms, made to fit their environments with such evident intelligent design, by the existence and the mutual help and interaction of two principles in (manifest) nature, the inner Conscious Principle adapting itself to physical nature and the innate potentialities in the latter.”
(The Secret Doctrine volume 2, page 654) 

Credit Where Due

Blavatsky is credited as the originator of this godless Intelligent Design doctrine by numerous other sources. It is undeniable that speaking of “intelligence” without giving credit to the Source of Intelligence is not acceptable to the Bible Believer. And the idea of refusing to Name THE Creator is a blasphemous and disgusting act that should bring cold chills to the spine of any genuine lover of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the CREATOR.

Satan is behind Intelligent Design. And this quote from Theodore Roszak is very telling.

“It is seldom remembered that, in the years following publication of “The Origin of Species”, [Helena Blavatsky] was the first person to aggressively argue the case for a transphysical element in evolution against the rising Darwinian consensus.

“Her effort, unlike that of the Christian fundamentalists, was not to reject Darwin’s work, but to insist that it had, by its focus on the purely physical, wholly omitted the mental, creative, and visionary life of the human race, in short, it omitted consciousness, whose development followed a very different evolutionary path.” [3]

Blavatsky is in Hell. But her doctrines of devils live on in Christian bookstores and Seminaries. And one of her most powerful “Secret Doctrines” is that of Intelligent Design.
