Heil to the Coming Progressive Utopia

Peter Jones of truthXchange tells us what the Left has in store for Bible believing New Testament Christians in the very near future.  He writes:

Reichsgründungsfeier in der 5. Volksschule in der Alten Jakobstraße, 2085-34

Commentators in major national newspapers in Scotland are aghast.  A 100-member youth choir from a Southern Baptist church in Plano, Texas gave a free concert at a shopping center in Edinburgh. The journalists compared this event to Nazi or ISIS propaganda. One asserted: “as a nation we should be stating clearly: bigots are not welcome here.” Scotland is the land of John Knox, the great Scotts reformer (1513–72), and of the young, deeply spiritual Robert Murray McCheyne (1813–43) who declared: “The Christian is a person who makes it easy for others to believe in God.” Now Scotland is a land where preaching the Gospel is compared to noxious Nazism.

The reason for such vitriol? The Plano church follows biblical teaching on sexual ethics, marriage and abortion. Its stated mission is “to glorify God by introducing Jesus Christ as Lord to as many people as possible and to develop them in Christian living using the most effective means to impact the world, making an eternal difference in this generation.” The social commentators feel this mission must be suppressed if Western society is to progress.

According to the Pew Research Center, Newsweek and The EconomistChristians are the world’s most widely persecuted religious group.

Though we can hardly imagine it, the same rejection and persecution taking place in Islam-dominated countries is appearing in “Christendom.” Hate-filled terms like Nazism or ISIS are employed to preserve the West from “hate-filled” Gospel preaching and biblical teaching on sexuality.

    Jesus Himself said we will be hated for His name’s sake. Our own families will turn against us because of Him. Those false brothers and sisters plaguing the church will turn against us…..He said there is a time coming when those that kill us think they’re doing God a favor! We have been spared of physical death for proclaiming Christ here in the US, but it won’t last long! You can end up in jail and pay very stiff fines if you stand up for God in Canada! That’s right Canada! It’s labeled hate speech, God’s commands are hailed as hate speech by the corrupt governments in Canada and most of Europe! Soon to be coming here.

      Hey Manny, you can get fined right here in the USA for not baking a wedding cake for a homosexual couple, or turning down a photographer job at a homosexual wedding, and the list goes on… There will be jail for us…or worse… Lord, give us Your strength to stand firm.

    Hi B!

    Yes, living the Christian life will get you into trouble with law! And I agree, the time is soon coming when the mere mention of Jesus will have you beheaded! Maranatha! God bless!

    It is time for us to start on what Kevin Swanson calls the “family economy”, essentially how you’re going to provide for your family when you become unemployable in a traditional job.

    Good morning L.J.,

    As children of God, born again Christians, we are told not to worry about genealogies, we, are citizens of above, not of below, this is temporal. Too many Christians are hung up on roots, country, patriotism and pride of their birth country, background or earthly status, we as Christians must put all these aside, we are first and foremost citizens of heaven!

    Kingdom Now and NAR heretics play on and prey upon people’s heartstrings when it comes to our country, you see according to their warped theology, THEY are ushering in the kingdom of Jesus Christ…….when their “Christianity” conquers all man made institutions, then and only then can our Lord Jesus return and make them overlords, this is heresy out of the pit of hell.

    Rejoice, as our Lord Jesus has conquered all, and we await our savior from our true country! This world is in judgement and it will get worse! God bless…….Maranatha!

      I want to make sure I understood you correctly.

      While we are not to worry, and certainly God is in control, I see no reason to believe we are supposed to be passive in the defense of our rights or liberties (certainly Paul was not). Too many Christians become fatalists and pacifists because they believe they are to accept everything that comes their way. They completely misunderstand Romans 12.

      There never would have been a protestant reformation if they reformers had simply echoed the current chorus of “God is in control” and done nothing.

    ” Too many Christians become fatalists and pacifists because they believe they are to accept everything that comes their way.”

    How can a bible believing Christian be fatalistic? Especially when the the word of God is clear on what is going to happen to this country and the world? Were the apostles “fatalists?” No. Are you saying that the apostles were NOTpacifist? Did they ever espouse violence? Paul was a violent and insolent man as a rabbi, as a Christian he was not, in fact he would run into the crowds in order to stop rioting, pleading with the rowdy crowds. Did he ever plead with his listeners to go against Rome? In fact the judaizers would blame him erroneously for such a thing! Did Paul ever tell his listeners to not pay their taxes? Turn against Caesar? Did he everplead with his associates to run for the empirial senate? Was politics ever the focus of his ministry? Paul pleaded with the authorities in his defense as he was being accused of sedition, he never actively pursued or pleaded for “rights.” The Protestant reformation came to pass, not because of rights, but because the overt abuses and corruption of the Vatican, not a secular government telling the citizenry what they can and can’t do. In our case, Christians want to rail against the the established order because we have this illusion that this is a Christian country, that some how we are owed………. We can do as much as we can while staying within the law. We will NOT change the culture, we are not Jesus, we CAN reach individuals with the Gospels, we will NOT usher the kingdom of Jesus Christ, we will not conquer and Christianize any man made institutions. Christians in Middle East are losing their heads for standing up for the name of Jesus Christ, would you say they are fatalists? Persecution and prosecution are the hallmarks of following Jesus Christ, from Empirial Rome, Islam, The Vatican, Communists, Globalists, Republicans, Democrats…………..If they hated Jesus, they will hate you too.

    Is this the Kevin Swanson you’re talking about?

    “Swanson hosted the Freedom 2015: National Religious Liberties Conference in Des Moines, Iowa, attended by Republican presidential candidates Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, former Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, and Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana. The conference addressed a number of topics including the history of religious liberty, religious liberty in the workplace and military, Christian involvement in government, and how to secure religious liberty for the future. At the conference, Swanson addressed the Biblical mandate of the death penalty for homosexuality, “There are instances in which both the Old and New Testament speak to the matter with unbelievable clarity. You know what that sin is – it’s the sin of homosexuality. In fact in Romans 1 Paul affirms that this particular sin is worthy of death. The Old and New Testament, I believe both speak with authority and we outta [sic] receive it.”[6][7] In the same speech, he stated that he was not calling for these biblical injunctions to be enacted in America, “because homosexuals need time to repent” and “America needs time to repent”.[7][8]”

      He is, and my mention of him was in reference to his advocacy for “family economies”. One of his websites this explains this concept is here: https://www.familyeconomics.com/

      My point in bringing it up is that it would be wise for Christians to be better prepared for a time when they may not be able to hold normal jobs. To my way of thinking it would be sinful not to prepare given the signs and our responsibility to provide for our families.

    Romans 12

    Living Sacrifices
    (1 Corinthians 3:16-18; 1 Corinthians 6:18-20)

    1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

    3For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. 4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. 6Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; 7Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; 8Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

    Love, Zeal, Hope, Hospitality
    (John 13:31-35; 1 John 3:11-24)

    9Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. 10Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; 11Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; 12Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; 13Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

    Forgiveness
    (Matthew 18:21-35)

    14Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. 15Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. 16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. 17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

    I don’t see how this could be misunderstood, one of the most sublime passages in the bible. A call to action? Yes! Live like this and shame the enemies of the cross………. God’s plan is unfurling, no matter what man plans, says or imagines, His plan as written will come to pass, this world and this country is under judgement. As for me and my family, we will follow God.

    This is an excellent framework published in Pulpit and Pen:t

    http://pulpitandpen.org/2016/07/31/when-polemics-and-politics-meet/

    “Every election year in America, evangelicals rush to ask and answer political questions. Many go along the lines of endorsing candidates while others try to be as vague as possible. As Christians, we are admonished to “test everything”. How do we test political statements in the light of Scripture?

    First of all, there are some things that the Bible is silent on in the realm of politics. For example, God never inspired any Scriptures about the amount of ethanol in gas or whether or not GMOs should be labeled. To try to practice theological discernment on these things would be a waste of time because the Bible simply does not speak on these things. However, there are things the Bible does speak on. If a theologian were to endorse a candidate that supports abortion, that would definitely bring to question how sound that teacher is. Similarly, if a pastor were to advocate for the redefining of marriage or endorse a politician who does, that would be a reason for concern.

    Another time when you should discern what people are saying is when they go as far as to say someone is a Christian just because they like their policies. If a Roman Catholic runs for office and you notice that someone has called him a Christian despite Roman Catholicism being a cult, that is an issue. Similarly, if one candidate is a Mormon and people go as far as to hide what they’ve said about Mormonism in the past, we should be cautioned as to the discernment of these people. To Christianize any candidate that has proven they aren’t Christian by their words or deeds, whether you vote for them or not, is wrong and something that should cause us to be cautioned.

    Another place where we must discern someone’s political views is when they hold a theocratic view. Theocrats tend to be given to unsound views of God’s law. Many of them hold to Dominionism–the belief that it is a Christian duty to take control of culture through the seven mountains of education, family, religion, business, entertainment, media, and politics. A lot of them further fall into the ditch of Theonomy, which basically claims that Israel’s Mosaic Civil Law is still binding. These concerns must also be considered.

    In discernment, there is a time when one’s political views must be examined and there is a time when they are irrelevant. What someone believes that the legal driving age should be raised to 18 or lowered to 15, that has no bearing on theology and is not something that’d be worth theological discernment. However, when someone endorses a candidate who wants to legalize murder, advocates for that legalized murder themselves, or draws their theology from bad politics to get bad theology, those are all things that need to be discerned against, warned about, and rebuked.”

    I’m not sure I’m following exactly where you’re going. The point of the article seemed to be that Christians are increasingly being seen as the opposite of what we are. At one time there was a general acceptance of Christianity–that is fading fast everywhere.

    My point was that we should be preparing for this change, to the extent that we can, as is our responsibility to our families. I don’t believe it is biblically defensible to do anything different than to plan for hard times.

    As far as how Christians should interact with government t I see an awful lot of Christians interpreting passages like Romans 12 in a way that is both fatalist and pacifist (essentially affirming the divine right of kings to do as they please). Paul asserted his rights as a Roman citizen, and I suggest we do the same–exercising the rights we have to try and maintain what remains of religious liberty.

    There are certainly folks with troublesome dominionistic teachings (including but not limited to the 7 mountain NAR-type), but to me that’s an entirely different conversation.

  11. Manny1962 August 2, 2016 at 7:43 am #

    Christians being relegated to the back of the line is here, this culture hates us. I am not a fatalist in the least, but I amarealist and I would agree with you that being prepared is wise, though I do believe many Christians take this to the extremes, such as hoarding food and barricading themselves. I would tend to say we should live our lives as stated by Paul…….shaming the world by our example. I also do agree there is nothing wrong with contending for the faith. My problem is with many that would deny or downplay the judgement that’s begun, calling it Christian hysteria or an excuse to “lay down arms.” God takes care of His own, He will not test a person beyond what he can bear. Are we not worth more than sparrows?

  12. Manny1962 August 2, 2016 at 8:49 am #

    Those that understand and follow world politics and economy says this ends in WW3, they see the mechanism, but they don’t understand the biblical implications, especially as outlined in the book of Revelation.
