You know how atheists think Christians are backward for having Faith – for believing in Jesus Christ, someone we’ve never seen, and Scriptures?
They think Genesis, the First Book of the Bible, is illogical – that evolution is science and that praying is a waste of time.
Since I used to be an atheist, turned agnostic and ultimately born again, I know all the excuses and arguments atheists present. Now, when I hear them, I simply feel sorry because I know there’s something I know which could save them that, unfortunately, they don’t know.
But what if I told you that atheists actually have faith too?
Let me give you a couple of examples:
People place their FAITH on other people, websites and professionals ALL THE TIME. They don’t even question sometimes whether or not they should actually trust them. Occasionally they find the hard way that perhaps they shouldn’t have trusted in the first place.
Sometimes operations go the wrong way
Sometimes the Insurance company doesn’t cover you as you thought.
And sometimes people flat out scam you.
And yet, trust is there.
But what makes it interesting, they trust people they DON’T KNOW and have NEVER SEEN.
As you know, on the plane example, passengers would even not be able to SEE THE PILOT at all. Or they are not able to SEE THE INSURANCE underwriter that priced his policy.
In other words, PEOPLE TRUST OTHER PEOPLE THEY NEVER SEE ALL THE TIME!
And yet, they think Christians are stupid! The SAME people who trust the pilot and who know the pilot is in the cockpit, say Christians are STUPID for believing in someone they can’t see!
What am I saying?
I’m saying that FAITH is a matter of the heart – it’s a matter of TRUST. And if you’re able to trust a pilot, you should be able to trust GOD even more!
John 14:6 : I’m the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Friend, if you can trust your doctor, you should definitely trust Jesus. I know that a doctor seems more real than Jesus, but think about this:
When you go to Buddha’s grave, who do you find? You find Buddha, of course.
When you go to Muhammad’s grave, who do you find? You find Muhammad, of course.
But when you go to Jesus’ grave, who do you find?
You find NOBODY
What does that tell you?
It tells you that Jesus was crucified, buried in His grave and RESURRECTED. He died on the cross for OUR SINS. And the fact that you won’t find Him in that grave tells you that the Bible is REAL.
Atheists have said that the body of Jesus must have been stolen and hidden by His followers, which explains why you won't find Jesus there. But Roman guards were guarding Jesus’ grave precisely to prevent that. These guards were in deep trouble because they FAILED. There was NO REASON for the guards to admit such failure – they would be EXECUTED as a result of this failure.
You see, people don’t lie to get themselves into trouble. They lie to get themselves OUT OF trouble. If you’re one of the guards, you won’t go to your commander and say ‘sorry, chief, I fell asleep and the body of Jesus was stolen’. You won’t do that simply because sleeping while on duty was punished by DEATH.
When Jesus blew the grave door open, these guards were terrified. They were in no mood to make up stories – they were going to be executed either way.
My friend, you have Faith. You have faith your doctor will save you and your taxi driver will take you to wherever it is your headed. That’s alright. But if you’re going to put your life in somebody’s hands, it should be Jesus’. He won’t disappoint you.
The Left hates Israel as much as Hamas does – and for the same reason.
As you know, Israelis live daily with the threat of terror hanging over their heads. The wildfires some news outlets are reporting these days are nothing but a twist to Islamic terror.
Israel is surrounded by enemies – Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Qatar are all enemies of the State of Israel. And on top of that, leftist US President Barack Hussein Obama recently gave Iran $100 BILLION of YOUR tax dollars to fund terrorism. Yes, my dear friend, the US is a sponsor of terrorism.
You may remember that Jews were slaves in Egypt for 400 years. Then they conquered the promised homeland, but they were continually attacked by hostile tribes. After that, the glory days of the United Kingdom of Israel and Judah ended and the Jews were beleaguered by wars with neighboring countries. In 722 BC the Assyrians conquered the northern part of Israel and deported its people. The Jews returned to their land seventy years later, but the Romans finally crushed them in AD 70 and they scattered around the world without a country for 1878 years..until the State of Israel was created in 1948.
You see, the Holocaust’s 6 million murders led the Jews to the creation of Israel – a piece of land where they would feel safe. After Hitler, the Jewish people had no choice but to return their promised land.
Israel’s enemies are holocaust deniers, but they promise a true holocaust if given the chance. They want to wipe the Jews off the face of the Earth – just like Hitler tried to, just like the Soviet Union tried to and just like every liberal tries to, now with fresh funds from our current President.
Islam hates Israel and wants to wipe it off the face of the earth for one simple reason:
The very existence of Israel proves the Bible is TRUE and the Koran is FALSE
If the Bible is true, then Israel IS the Promised Land and the Jews ARE God’s chosen people.
That leaves Islam with NO TRUE GOD. And that’s a huge problem for them – they’re indoctrinating their own people that Allah is the true God and Israel’s existence goes against that idea.
What Islam doesn't like is the idea that God made a covenant with Abraham:
Genesis 12: 1-3: Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation. I will bless you and make your name great. And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you and I will curse him who curses you. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.
This covenant is unconditional. God says He WILL make Abraham a great nation – He doesn’t say He ‘might’. God says He WILL bless Abraham – He doesn’t say He ‘is kind of thinking about it’. It’s always ‘will’ – ‘I will, I will, I will…curse him who curses you’
Islam is in the business of proving the Bible wrong – that’s why they behead Christians and Jews and that’s why they’re at war with Israel. If Genesis is real, then the rest of the Bible is real - and Jesus is real. And He's risen. That is a huge, huge problem for them...
So we know why Islam hates Israel. But how about the Left? Why does the Left hate Israel?
It’s the SAME reason: the VERY existence of Israel proves the BIBLE TO BE RIGHT!
The left doesn’t want anything to do with the Bible. The left wants to replace God with Government so anything that helps the cause of the Judeo-Christian beliefs is an ENEMY of the left.
Liberals and radical Islam have the SAME ENEMY: God.
My friend, the left wants to be your god – it wants to tell you how to live your life, what to think, what to feel. Liberals want to control you. But if you’re obedient to God, by definition, you’re not obedient to THEM. And that’s a problem for them.
In countries such as Cuba, North Korea or China, when you disobey the government, they simply put you to death if so these oppressive, leftists in government please. To the extent that you don’t FEAR the government because you have GOD on your side, that’s a problem for them.
Please, don’t believe the left’s lies. They don’t want Israel any more than Hamas wants Israel. And the reason is the same: they are at war with GOD and the battle is for YOUR MIND and for YOUR HEART.
Make sure you give your mind and your heart to the only one who loves you in this war: GOD.
There’s nothing that reveals the democrats' hatred for women more than abortion. I know, they say abortion is a woman’s right to choose and since they ‘love’ women so much, they want us to have the freedom to choose…
But that’s simply not true – now, if you follow my logic here, you’ll understand why.
You see, the whole idea of ever having to face abortion at all, in the liberal’s mind, is this: as a woman, you’re supposed to have all the sex, all the ‘fun’ that you want – it’s the ‘cool’ thing to do. Inevitably, at some point, you get pregnant because your birth control method failed. So you go to the guy who you think is the baby’s father and tell him the news. The guy, obviously, wants nothing to do with you or the baby.
He was just having fun!
A baby is something he doesn’t want to deal with because, let’s face it, he doesn’t care too much about you so why should he care about your baby?
So you’re left alone with what now seems to be your right to choose, according to the liberal’s mind. So you choose.
Now this whole ordeal is revealing an undeniable fact about liberals' opinion of YOU:
Much like you think your baby is disposable, your ‘man’, if he’s a liberal, thinks you’re disposable too. Or why else do you think they want the freedom to abort?
Let me tell you why:
Your liberal boyfriend wants the freedom to dispose of YOU and YOUR BABY as soon as possible!
Abortion is to a liberal like his car's regular maintenance – change the oil, get rid of the baby so he can go back to using you over and over and over again.
Now, don’t get me wrong – a democrat’s car is probably more important to him than you’ll ever be…he would never toss his car into the garbage as fast as he tosses YOU into the garbage. And when he finally does get rid of his car, he goes through a mourning period. In order for him to get rid of his car, the car must meet two conditions:
When he chooses to get rid of YOU, however, you only have to be useless to him. No need to wait until you’re old. And no mourning period is needed – he’ll go after his next victim as fast as he can. Let’s face it, college campuses are filled with insecure young women who will go with the first liberal who compliments her a little.
Listen – we didn’t create this website to sugarcoat anything here. We created it to share the simple truth. The ONLY truth. My philosophy is: It’s better to tell a truth that hurts now, but saves in the end, than to tell a lie that doesn’t hurt now, but kills in the end.
Be brave and keep on reading…
...a REAL man would take care of you.
A real man wouldn’t abandon you. A real man is NOT a liberal – he’s a GODLY man who desires to find the right woman to raise a family with.
And, by the way, a real woman wouldn’t kill her baby either…
Does it hurt?
I hope it does – it’s called ‘growing pains’…
But the Left doesn’t want you to know any this. The more ignorant you are, the easier for them to turn you into a sex toy.
How about feminism?
Ah! Glad you asked…
Feminism is a Woman's WORST Enemy
Feminism is in bed with democrats. It supposedly opposes the objectification of women. But you have to remember – they’re leftists too. When they defend your right to kill your baby, they’re protecting men’s right to use you as an object. The ultimate goal is to make you think that you’re worthless and disposable – thus controllable.
The lower your self-esteem, the easier it is to manipulate you.
If you don’t want to have lots of sex, these feminists (directed by leftist men) label you as ‘backward’, ‘weird’. They want YOU to feel like you’re the one with the problem, while actually creating a much bigger, self-destructive problem.
How DARE you not lower yourself to the objectification they try to impose on you?
How DARE you rebel against their decision to put you in this little box labeled ‘sex toy’?
Don’t you see that that’s ALL you are? Don’t think. Don’t feel. Just let liberal men use you and toss you into the garbage as they please.
That, my dear friend, is the uncomfortable truth.
Are you going to let leftist feminists DICTATE what you should do with your body? And I’m talking about your body here, not the baby’s body. You can read more about the baby’s body in my Abortion Is a Matter of LIFE and DEATH blog.
Are you going to let self-centered leftist men DICTATE what you should do with your body?
And please don’t fall for his lies: ‘but I love you!’. He doesn’t. Democrat men don’t know how to love.
When you’re dating, ask him this question: ‘what do you think about abortion’?
If he’s in favor of it, dump him.
A man who doesn't care about his own children won’t care about you either.
Dump him and never look back.
If a man only wants to spend time with you just to have sex, he’s not worth 30 seconds of your time.
If a man abandons you when you get pregnant with HIS baby, he’s not worth 30 seconds of your time.
He doesn’t love you, and he never will.
The left doesn’t love you, and it never will.
Feminists don’t love you, and they never will.
But YOU should love yourself as much as God loves you.
I’m telling you all this because as a woman, I care about other women. I’ve seen too many women suffer in the hands of selfish leftist men. And they fell for these men’s lies over and over and over…and these women were miserable. They wasted SO much time until they figured it out.
One thing liberals do really well is lie – don’t fall for their lies!
God loves you too much to let you think so little of yourself.
If you’ve had an abortion, please don’t think God loves you any less. Don’t let guilt eat you up – repent. Repent from your sin and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. The baby you aborted is resting with Jesus now. But you’re not saved unless you repent and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Love yourself as much as God loves you!
John 3:16: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Find a good Bible church, and spend more time with people who WILL lift you up and LOVE you the way God does.
Ever noticed how, when someone like Princess Kate or Chelsea Clinton gets pregnant the media keeps referring to their babies as…babies? Shocking, eh?
And on the other hand, have you ever noticed how, when a poor black or Hispanic woman gets pregnant and considering abortion the media keeps referring to their babies as…fetuses? The implication is, obviously, the condition of being a human baby changes depending on who the mother is.
If you’re the mother, you may think everything is fine and dandy, no matter if you’re Chelsea or a poor Hispanic woman. Either way, you’ll get what you want.
But have you ever put yourself in the baby’s place? As you know, you once were a ‘baby’... or a ‘fetus’.
You see, from the baby’s perspective, the true ESSENCE of him being considered a person is critical to his survival. If your mother doesn’t see you as a person, you have a big problem – your FATE will now depend on one thing only: the answer to the following question:
‘Does my mother want me?'
That’s what the Left tells you, right? Your life or your death will come down to what your mother wants to do with you and there’s nobody to protect you from her decision. You’ll either make it through the birth canal, or you’ll be killed in her womb.
Does that sound appealing to you?
Now that you’re facing this problem in your mother’s womb, I guess you’d like to find an advocate to speak for you or somehow talk to her yourself. And you want to ask your mother to please not kill you because you have strong and very persuasive reasons – even if she really doesn’t want you.
At this point you need to think fast so that you can present your case as effectively as possible.
‘Mom, please don’t kill me. Here are the three reasons why’
The Three Reasons Why Abortion is WRONG
Since you’re in deep trouble right now, let me help you build your case for your right to live. Here are the three reasons why abortion is wrong:
1, YOU ARE A CHILD: You may not know this but ‘fetus’ is Latin for ‘child’. So even when your mother or her doctor might speak about you as a ‘fetus’, and getting rid of this ‘fetus’, what they're really saying is that you’re a ‘child’. She's truly considering getting rid of her ‘child’.
My friend, what’s forming in your mother’s womb is a CHILD. It’s not Jell-O. It’s a CHILD.
You have FEELINGS, you can hear your mother’s voice, you can feel pain or anxiety… you’re an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT PERSON from your mother. In fact, your GENES come from your FATHER as well as your mother. LIFE is being formed in your mother's womb.
2. LEGAL DOESN’T MAKE IT RIGHT: Democrats say that different religions have different views on abortion and therefore it’s OK if your Faith or conscience support the idea of killing a baby. In fact it’s one of the reasons they cite for legalizing abortion, which in our country happened thanks to Roe v Wade back in 1973.
But legal doesn’t make something right. For example:
My friend, the fact that abortion is legal doesn’t mean it’s right. It’s still WRONG – it’s still MURDER. There’s still right and wrong in this world and the government doesn’t get to decide what’s right and what’s wrong – God does.
3. THERE IS NO RIGHT OF CHOICE: When the Left says women have the right to choose, the next question should be: choose what? What is this CHOICE that you’re talking about? CHOICE TO DO WHAT?
My friend, they’re talking about the choice to KILL ANOTHER human being. Abortion is truly a matter of LIFE and DEATH - the baby's life or death.
Now, saying so is too brutal (though true), so liberals use other terms to sound more appealing. They talk about ‘late term abortions’, which is really euphemism for ‘MURDER DURING DELIVERY’, or they talk about women's ‘health issue’. It's not a health issue - a baby isn't a disease. But they know that killing babies is barbaric – so they sugarcoat it so that you can still be killed in your mother’s womb without your mother feeling too bad about it (though, as studies show, most women do suffer severe depression after an abortion).
It’s always WRONG to do WRONG
The Bible talks about abortion – it is an ABOMINATION in God’s eyes:
Proverbs 6:16-17: ‘There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue and hands that shed innocent blood’.
It is estimated that over 55 million innocent unborn people have been killed in the US after Roe v Wade. Compare that with the 6 million Jews Hitler massacred and you tell me who’s the worst criminal?
Most religions accept the principle 'Do not do onto others what you don’t want others to do onto you'. If you don’t want your brain to be vacuumed and your neck broken, if you don’t want a doctor to inject acid into your lungs so that they collapse and you die a horrible death, then don’t do that to unborn babies.
Friend, if you’ve had an abortion or if you’ve assisted in one, you can still make things right. While you’re still breathing, you can still REPENT from your sin, ask God for forgiveness and never, ever, ever do that again – and join forces to help educate people on this subject.
The official story of Thanksgiving that you learnt in school says nothing about socialism. The Left, which has dominated the curricula for decades, is very careful when it comes to indoctrinating our children into socialism. So, any chapters in our history that make socialism look bad, such as the Thanksgiving story, are carefully rewritten.
The true story of Thanksgiving is that of a failed socialist experiment. At the time, they didn't call it socialism, of course. But if you pay close attention to what actually happened, you'll see how half the Pilgrims died as a result of a disastrous socialist experiment, which, for reasons I don't understand, is still being tried today.
The official version of Thanksgiving in children's textbooks simply indicates that in the autumn of 1621, the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag gathered to celebrate the colony's first successful harvest.
Generally, school teachers tell you that Indians taught the Pilgrims how to catch eel and grow corn, and the success of the Pilgrims' first harvest was the direct result of Indians teachings.
But this version is not quite accurate - it's missing the most important part...
...how the Pilgrims dropped socialism and subsequently adopted the free market system that ultimately made America the best country on earth.
Here's the real story of Thanksgiving that the Left doesn't want you to know.
The Story of Thanksgiving the Left Doesn't Want You To Know
The Church of England, under King James I, was persecuting everyone who didn't recognize the Church's absolute authority. The punishment for those who challenged its authority was imprisonment and, sometimes, death.
A group of separatists decided to emigrate, first landing in Holland to establish a community.
After 11 years, about 40 of them decided to embark on a dangerous journey to the New World.
We have to remember, these were very religious people, who left their home country so that they could worship as they pleased, without risking their lives. In their hearts, such long and dangerous journey to America was similar to the Israelites' journey to the Promised Land. Much like the Israelites, the Pilgrims never doubted that they would make it. They trusted God...
Once in the New World, the first winter was devastating - half the Pilgrims died of starvation, including the colony's governor William Bradford's wife.
According to the story that you've been taught in school, this is when the Indians came in to help the Pilgrims, which is all true.
What follows is the part that's omitted from history textbooks - the part that the left doesn't want you to know.
The first economic system implemented in the Colony was what we would now call socialism.
You see, before the Pilgrims left England, they signed a contract which seemed fair and stipulated that they were to pool, for the common benefit 'all profits and benefits that are got by trade, traffic, trucking, working, fishing, or any other means of any person or persons' for 7 years, during which time colonists were to 'have their meat, drink, apparel and all provisions out of the common stock of the said colony'
Once they reached land they implemented the system as per the contract they had signed - but in the first winter half the people died as a direct result of this system.
The problem with the system was people didn't put too much effort laboring the common land and as a result, output wasn't enough to feed all of them.
Socialism killed half the Pilgrims.
Governor Bradford realized the 'commune' system didn't work - he wrote the experiment 'was found to breed much confusion and discontent and retard much employment that would have been to the benefit and comfort. For the young men, that were most able and fit for labour and service, did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men's wives and children without any recompense'.
Bradford recognized that this form of collectivism was destructive to them - as the first harsh winter had proven. Half the people weren't carrying their weight - they didn't have to.
Socialism produced LACK
What did Bradford do?
He scrapped socialism... permanently.
He assigned a plot of land to each family to manage, thus introducing for the first time what we now know as free enterprise - capitalism.
Now, with the capitalistic principle of private property, there was incentive to work - now there was...abundance.
Capitalism produced ABUNDANCE
Abundance that the free market system enabled, and that they then shared with the Indians - to give thanks to God for their safety and discovery of the new system, and thanks to the Indians for their help.
Don't let the Left lie to you. Learn our history.
Have you ever heard an atheist say becoming an atheist saved his life? Me neither.
Non-believers largely tend to dismiss Christians when they witness to them – usually Christians tell their stories of how they came to Jesus and how transforming such conversion was in their lives. There’s usually emotions involved on the part of the Christians that non-believers simply dismiss because they cannot comprehend.
If you’re a non-believer, then this message is for you. Trust me, you’ve got nothing to lose by reading this – and a lot to gain.
You see, if you’re a non-believer, you probably believe in evolution – that is, you don’t believe God created you but rather you believe you’re the result of millions and millions of accidents and you’re lucky to be here.
What happens when you look at yourself in the mirror?
Well, you probably see a monkey – after all, evolutionists think that man comes from the ape.
That’s quite a depressing picture – so you see a monkey and you have no hope for anything beyond the limited amount of time you get in this life.
But what happens when a Christian looks at himself in the mirror?
Well, we see PURPOSE.
Some unbelievers do define their own purpose, don’t get me wrong. Some set noble goals, some not so much. Among these goals you may find: to make as much money as you can, to have as much sex as you can, to drink as much as you can, to climb Mount Everest, to drive a better car than your neighbor, to have a better job than your brother or to cure cancer.
Some of the unbelievers goals are worthy, some are driven by pride or selfishness.
But the problem is what happens when they don’t reach their goals?
The frustration that comes from always wanting more – more power, more money or even wanting to cure diseases like cancer, as noble as that may be, unless you’re successful, the frustration is gigantic. Don’t get me wrong – there are a lot of GOOD people who are not Christians – not selfish or proud. But even these good people know that something’s missing. They, too, get frustrated sometimes when they can't accomplish their goals. It's natural, in this competitive society, where they measure themselves against their fellow men. They mean well, but when they can’t accomplish their goals, frustration floods their hearts. It’s sad to watch because it’s avoidable…
But what happens when a Christian can't accomplish his goal?
The difference with Christians is the fact that we know...
WHOSE we are and WHOSE PLAN we’re to follow.
We know that, if we want to cure cancer but we can’t, it’s probably not our purpose in life. As saddening as this reality might be, we face failures with a different attitude. We know God is in control and if He doesn’t want me to cure cancer, then curing cancer is not in His plan for me. And I accept it, knowing that curing cancer is somebody else’s purpose, and mine is different.
For example, I truly believe from the bottom of my heart that creating this blog is God’s purpose for me. Will we be cash-positive one day? I don’t know – but that’s irrelevant. God has blessed me with multiple sources of income and I use my money to fund things like this – hopefully, to help you.
But what makes us, Christians, so confident about what we’re doing?
Glad you asked…
Five Things Christians Know That Unbelievers Would Benefit From
There are five things we know in our hearts that non-believers would benefit from understanding:
1. We know we’re saved – the minute we accepted Jesus as our Lord and savior, we were saved. Saved from sin, and saved for a purpose. He has a purpose for all of us.
2.We know God knows everything about us. He knows our needs and deepest thoughts and desires. Please read Psalm 139:1-4. This Psalm was written by David (King David of Israel and Judah – the warrior and the same person who defeated Goliath):
‘O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I’m going to say even before I say it, Lord.’
To unbelievers, the idea that God knows everything about them is scary. And it should be – being scared is actually a warning sign that no unbeliever should ignore. If you’re one, get right with God and enjoy the comfort of knowing He’s right with you.
3. We know God is with us all the time. He protects us, He guides us. If you continue reading Psalm 139: 5-12:
‘Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand. I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven you’re there. If I go down to the grave, you’re there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me. I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night – but even in darkness I cannot hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to you.’
Don’t you love the idea of having God constantly looking after us?
4. We know God has a wonderful purpose for us. Sometimes finding that purpose is not easy – to some people, it comes out naturally. Think of such talents as Mozart or Edgar Allan Poe. Or Michael Jordan or Andre Agassi. To most of us, finding that one purpose can be a long process, but He promises there is one for us. Continuing with Psalm 139: 13-16 (abortionist should pay special attention to the following verses):
‘You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous – how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb, you saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in you book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed’.
He has a plan for us...
5. We know God has us constantly in His thoughts. From Psalm 139 17-18:
‘How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!’
Friend, if you’re a non-believer I urge you to open your heart. You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain. Don’t believe the lies the Left tells you.
You’re not a descendant of an ape – you’re a child of Almighty God.
You are valuable. You have royal blood in your veins!
Your life doesn’t end when you die – you can live for an eternity. You have a PURPOSE – a God given purpose that you need to seek. Find out what it is and take possession of your blessings!
America is a nation of immigrants. Historically, we have received people from all corners of the world – some fleeing war, some fleeing oppression, some fleeing extreme poverty – all of them seeking freedom and opportunity.
With the Trump Administration soon to be sworn in, immigration has become a hot button issue. People are reacting emotionally about Trump’s policies and are not really thinking what we really ought to do as a nation. Focusing on what might or might not happen, having a ‘the sky is falling’ attitude doesn’t help anyone, particularly those who claim to be concerned.
So let’s start tackling the issue.
People don’t know what to think about immigration – should we be compassionate towards immigrants? Should we help them out? Legal and illegal? Should we receive them? Should we restrict immigration?
With terrorism surging all these questions are valid questions...
...we want to be compassionate, but we want to be safe as well.
So what’s the right thing to do?
Before I give you an answer, let me tell you my friend, that the issue of immigration is not a partisan issue. Politicians who don’t understand right from wrong will not solve the problem and they won’t give you an answer.
The answer to the immigration issue is really in the most important book you will ever read. You know this book – it’s existed for thousands and thousands of years. Right now you can’t find it in our public schools, but you can download it online. Chances are, however, you have a copy at home already.
Personally I have many copies – one in each of my smart phones, in my eBook reader and three printed versions.
The book I’m talking about is The Bible. Yes, the Bible talks about immigration.
What does the Bible say about immigration? Like I said earlier, we want to help but we want to be safe. Can we do both?
Yes, we can. So let's see what we're supposed to do.
According to the Bible, God’s people are to:
But there's a catch, so keep reading.
Let’s discuss in more detail how the Bible says we should do these three things.
God commands acceptance of foreigners – but not any foreigners. He commands us to accept only those foreigners who are willing to accept His laws. In Leviticus God gives Israelites a number of rules they must follow.
Leviticus 18:26 says: ‘You must obey all my decrees and regulations. You must not commit any of these detestable sins. This applies both to native-born Israelites and to the foreigners living among you’.
The Bible has many examples of foreign-born men and women who were accepted as productive citizens of Israel. Accepting immigrants who are willing to accept God’s laws is a mandate in the Bible.
In the New Testament, there's another example of acceptance of foreigners. Jesus defied the long-standing custom of not speaking to Samaritans when in the Gospel according to John He engaged in conversation with a Samaritan woman. This conversation ultimately led to many of her Samaritan friends to come to Jesus Christ (John 4:1-26).
As you can see, the key is to only accept immigrants who are subject to the same laws as natives. Anyone coming to our country with the purpose of breaking the law should not be allowed in.
Hospitality to immigrants was crucial in ancient times, because travel was extremely treacherous.
Exodus 23:9 says: ‘You must not oppress foreigners. You know what it’s like to be a foreigner, for you yourselves were once foreigners in the land of Egypt’.
Helping immigrants is another mandate in the Bible.
This is the key one. We can accept immigrants who are willing to follow our laws. We can even help them out, but without the third one, immigration is never going to work.
This third mandate is CRITICAL to a prosperous, functioning society. It’s CRITICAL to the survival of such society. In the Bible, immigrants didn’t have carte blanche to do as they pleased. God gave us explicit limits to our acceptance of strangers.
Foreigners in Israel were expected to contribute to the success of the nation. There are many examples in the Bible of many immigrants contributing to their adopted land.
The message coming from the Bible is crystal clear: yes, we must accept and help immigrants, but only to the extent that they assimilate to the national culture and contribute to society.
Try explaining any of this to Democrats in power…Since they’re leftists, the idea of a prosperous America or even the survival of a Christian America is repelling to them – they want immigrants who are going to destroy our culture. Leftists care very little about our individual well-being. They have one purpose (which they share with Islamic Terrorists, by the way): the destruction of America as we know it, like they've destroyed other cultures such as in Cuba, in China, in North Korea, in Latin America (where I'm originally from) and now, in Europe. Illegal immigrants, and Islamic refugees are part of the plan. Thank God the electorate rejected it in the last election.
As you can see, my friend, as the Christian nation that we are, we’re expected to follow these Biblical rules above. Let’s bring in the people who truly love this country – and are willing to sacrifice for it. Those who are coming to break the law, or to kill us in the name of some fictitious god, shouldn’t be given the opportunity to do so on our own soil.
Let’s be compassionate and stay safe at the same time. It CAN be done!
A lot of people are wondering if there’s persecution of Christians in America today.That is a sad thought but also a very valid concern.
There’s no question that Christianity is declining in America. While according to the Pew Research Center about 70% of Americans identify as Christians, a study conducted by sociologists C. Kirk Hadaway and Penny Long Marler indicates that less than 20% Americas regularly attend Church. Momentum is building against the Christian religion in America: the current government, the media, the educational system, the entertainment industry no longer share our Christian values. As a result, Christians are becoming more and more alienated from the key forces of society.
But does that mean that there is persecution in America?
Typically when we think about persecution we think about Nero throwing Christians to his lions for entertainment, or crucifying Christians in the Roman empire. Or today, we think about the horrible be-headings and senseless murders taking place in the Middle East.
While there is no question that those horrific acts definitely qualify as persecution, there are other, more subtle acts, that qualify as persecution as well.
Let me give you a couple of examples...
Remember David and Jason Benham? They are twin brothers who used to have a TV show on HGTV calles ‘Flip It Forward’. Everything was going well until activists found out that the two brothers were Christians and had expressed opposition to abortion and gay marriage in the past – before the show was even a project. Their views on abortion or gay marriage, naturally, have nothing to do with a house renovation show. Still, the network decided to cancel their show.
How about the bakers in Oregon who refused to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding, citing their Christian values as their reason? The state charge the bakery with a $135,000 fine.
Obviously this is all done in the name of civil rights – the very rights that Christians are not recognized. What used to be good is now bad, and what used to be bad is now good.
I remember when the bakery case in Oregon happened – I thought ‘you know, when I realize I’m not welcomed in some place, I just leave. Why didn’t the gay couple go to some other bakery?’
Well, my dear friend, it’s because of …PERSECUTION.
You see, in America we’re not yet at a point where we behead Christians. But there are four other forms of persecution aside from death.
The four forms of persecution
That's right - there are other forms of persecution other than death.
Let's examine these four forms of persecution:
What it tells me, my dear friend, is that we’re now apparently living in a post-christian America.
In a Clinton administration, things would have likely gotten worse. Now that Donald Trump has won the 2016 presidential election, it looks like God has answered our prayers and there’s a chance to course correct. But the left will always be there and it’s a matter of time until they get back in office – and, boy, are they going to ramp up persecution.
But not to worry, my dear friend. This mess can only end up in either of two things: a religious revival (it’s happened many times before and it might be happening right now) or Rapture (where all the Christians will be called by Jesus to join him in Heaven).
No matter how you look at it, it all ends in victory for us Christians.
What side will you be on when Rapture happens?
