Christians Displayed as Domestic Terrorists if We Take the Bible too Seriously?

April 25, 2015

I often wonder why 0zero never chooses to call the mass killings of Christians that are  happening in the Middle East and North Africa what they are – Christian massacres.

I read somewhere online that people were alarmed because on the 100th anniversary of the slaughter,  0zero said nothing to show sympathy for, or commemorate the Armenian Genocide of Christians in 1915.

Why is that?

Maybe I missed it?

It was quite disturbing to see 0zero use the annual Prayer Breakfast to criticize Christians of today for the Crusades which happened almost 1,000 years ago… yet neglected to tell the truth that it was the Muslim conquests and slaughter of Christians and Catholics that led them to defend themselves at that time in history!

I have some questions.

Why does radical Islamic terrorism, and their murderous, raping of women, stoning and hanging of homosexuals, kidnapping of girls to be used as sex slaves and all the other atrocious ways of mayhem get a pass (e.g. refuses to label them “Islamic”); yet 0zero and his badministration continue to put down, criticize, show hatred towards and berate Christians?

What is wrong with this picture, people?

Enough already!

Why are Christians being bashed unendingly here in America while this badministration continues to ignore the atrocities being done against them in the name of the false “god” allah?

It all seems so Twilight zone-ish and surreal to me. No…that’s not the right description. It IS ALL SO TERRIBLY HORRENDOUS AND MORALLY EVIL!

I have never known any president of the U.S. to ever show such hatred towards Christians, back-stabbing our greatest ally in the Middle East – Israel – and even go so far as to try to do everything in his power to undermine the re-election of Benjamin Netanyahu because he probably (no…definitely) hates him!

Lately, I have noticed several blogs reporting on upcoming military exercises in certain areas of the United States.  The “project” is entitled, “Jade Helm 15.”  When an online search is done, over 2 million links show up!  I usually like to link to blogs that I am familiar with.  That is where I started my research.  The details that I discovered on additional blogs, news stories and websites were everything from the typical line from the movie Animal House – “do not be alarmed – all is well” to downright fear that this military exercise (and the name of it) SHOULD be a great cause of concern for all Americans!

This is a Talk Wisdom Reports – You Decide post.

The most important links that I have seen (so far) are included in the list below. There is an excerpt from the final link. I encourage you to read them and then see what you think?!

Yes! I know that the Before It’s News claim may be considered a wild one at best, crazy at its worst. But let’s give the website some credit for systematically telling us how they “got there” and why they don’t think it’s such a far fetched idea.

I sincerely hope and pray that they are wrong about their conclusions!  I continue to pray, despite all of our grievous sins, that God’s Hand of mercy and grace remain upon us and will uphold  this nation – even though we probably don’t deserve it.

Again…Talk Wisdom Reports…You Decide! Draw your own conclusions.

Excerpts:

The present administration detests Christians and their actions speak clearly to this point.

Even Elements of the Mainstream Media Question Obama’s Inaction Against ISIS

Why won’t President Obama act to stop the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East by ISIS?

ISIS expanded its extermination of Christians to another country with the release of a video on Sunday purportedly showing a mass execution of Ethiopian Christians in Libya.

In her “Off the Record” commentary, Greta Van Susteren took President Obama to task for failing to act forcefully against the atrocities. Van Susteren words came just after the release of another gruesome video by ISIS, showing the beheadings of the Ethiopian Christians. Van Susteren said despite video proof of the atrocities as they happen, some want to “bury their head in the sand.” Van Susteren demanded that President Obama step forward and lead the “great nations” of the world in a fight to stop the killings of Christians by ISIS.

American Center for Law and Justice Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow has condemned Obama’s inaction against ISIS and their wholesale murders of Christians by asking “how many more Christians must be murdered at the hands of terror group ISIS before President Barack Obama decides to take specific action to stop the slaughter. It is unacceptable for President Obama, the West and the United Nations to stand idly by and watch the systematic elimination of Christians by radical Islamists.”

Muslims are only recognized by Obama in White House statements related to ISIS if they’re the victims. Christians and Jews are only recognized if they’re the perpetrators of violence. Rev. Graham raises the very sensible point when he recently stated “Can you imagine the outcry if 21 Muslims had been beheaded by Christians?”

Obama Is Allowing ISIS to Grow

In the U.S. large scale air campaign which has resulted in countless civilian casualties has been routinely misreported by the mainstream media. According to  Max Boot, senior fellow in national security at the Council on Foreign Relations. ”Obama’s strategy in Syria and Iraq is not working… [ because] the U.S. bombing campaign against ISIS has been remarkably restrained”.  (Newsweek, February 17, 2015). The liberal press can be so forgiving of Obama’s transgressions. Restrained? Obama’s inaction against ISIS constitutes material support for the terror organization. With each day that Obama does virtually nothing to stop ISIS, is another day Obama is allowing ISIS the opportunity to grow stronger and to kill even more Christians.

In the early days of ISIS, Obama had the chance to use F-16’s, F-35’s, A-10’s, bombers, etc., to totally destroy ISIS, but he didn’t, why not? Judicial Watch uncovered a double-sourced government document proving the existence of an ISIS camp eight miles from El Paso. Obama has done nothing. why not?

Obama Is Playing for the Other Side

The lack of inaction against ISIS parallels his excessively weak nuclear treaty with Iran which will ultimately allow the Iranians to gain the ability to launch nuclear weapons against Israel. Obama is allowing Iran to send weapons to Yemen.

Two years ago, Egyptian media claimed President Barack Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). Leading the charge was Tahani al-Gebali, Vice President of the Supreme Constitutional Court in Egypt.

Americans Should Fear Obama

Nearly 70 percent of Americans say they lack confidence that the U.S. will achieve its goals in fighting the terrorist group ISIS, according to a recent poll. America should not merely question the leadership of Obama, they should question his loyalties. If you are a Christian, Obama, by omission or commission is your enemy and he has the pedigree to validate this statement.

As I have reported in the past, the President’s half brother, Malik Obama, is involved and is a leader in the distribution of arms both in Gaza and in Central America. Malik Obama is charge of weapons procurement and finances for the Muslim Brotherhood. President Obama has never disavowed his half brother’s actions.

In fact, Obama has been fermenting a Muslim Brotherhood takeover of the White House.
This is not about being a Muslim. This is about senior White House officials having strong ties to a terrorist organization, who in turn, have ties to ISIS.

This is not about being a Muslim. This is about senior White House officials having strong ties to a terrorist organization, who in turn, have ties to ISIS.

 

Under Obama, the New Coptic Christians Are the American Christians

As Supreme Commander of the military, Obama has encouraged/permitted the United States military to participate in the persecution of Christians.  A recent Army briefing was given by Lt. Col. Jack Rich to a reserve unit in Pennsylvania which identified several organizations and movements as extremist groups.  First on the list of his slides presented in the briefing listed evangelical Christians including Catholics, which was subsequently followed by Hamas, al-Qaida, Nation of Islam and the Ku Klux Klan.

Lt. Col. Rich warned his subordinates to not back down from bad Christian behavior for “when they see behaviors which are inconsistent with Army values, don’t just walk by. Do the right thing before it becomes a problem.” Further, the warning has been given to flag Christians and put them on no buy lists for guns. Rich’s briefing dovetails with the same kind of anti-Christian rhetoric recently presented to Colorado law enforcement officials in La Junta, Colorado in which Christians were prominently displayed in as domestic terrorists if they take the Bible too literally. And in the recent, so-called government shutdown, Christian military clergy were prohibited to minister to their flock during the shutdown or they faced court martial.

The Inspiration to Destroy Christians

Consider the following quote from David Spangler of the United Nations.

“No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.”

David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations

Even Obama promises to build a kingdom on earth, not God’s kingdom, but his own kingdom.

These are the most frightening words ever spoken by a Chief Executive

 

Jade Helm In the Hands of Obama Is a Christian Genocide In the Making

Jade Helm is about dissident extractions. We have seen here, that the Obama administration considers Christians to be domestic terrorists. The Jade Helm infiltration techniques , planned to be implemented and spoken of by Jade Helm authorities, speak to the existence of death squads and the intention to use them. Jade Helm is about martial law and mass relocation. Given Obama’s past behavior toward Christians, all people of faith should fear for their lives. This administration has drawn a clear line in the sand against Christians.

Update at 3:22 p.m. on 4/25/15:

Found another informative site. Conspiracy Analyst.org – Jade Helm 15

This individual was in the U.S. Army! His research includes many articles and links, photos, videos and analyses by others. As I scrolled down the page,  I found the article that states, “Seventeen Things You Can Count On When Jade Helm 15 Goes Live.”  This particular portion caught my eye:

15-The total control or elimination of religion

Yes x      No

 

The Net Neutrality Act implemented by administrative fiat by the FCC has given the government complete power over over all media and ultimately all free speech.

Religion is in grave danger in this administration and the regulations of the Clergy Response Team clearly shows the intent of the federal government. At the time of citizen roundups, the decision has been made to eliminate Christianity as a viable and legal practice as evidenced by the revelations of Pastor Walt Mansfield who provided me with the details in an exclusive interview following his training with the Clergy Response Team. It is highly recommended that you read this article as it details that FEMA camps are real, the Pastor’s role in helping to maintain order within a FEMA camp and the fact that Christianity will not be allowed. Further, Pastor Mansfield revealed that Clergy Response Team pastors are required to spy on those that they minister to. Finally, Mansfield revealed that reading from the Bible is expressly forbidden because Christianity is a form of persecution.

Shouldn’t Christians Just Obey the Law?

April 22, 2015

 

I receive emails from CitizenLink.  The goal of this organization is to help transform the culture through biblical citizenship.  Today, CitizenLink provided a link to an essay posted at the Family Policy Institute.  After reading this excellent article, I thought it would be advantageous to share it with readers here.  I pray that it would go viral!  But I doubt that it will  because the “politically correct” crowd will NOT like it…not one bit!

It is just too good to only excerpt here, so I have copied and pasted the entire essay below.  Please share your thoughts after reading it!

Shouldn’t Christians Just Obey the Law?

April 14, 2015/11 Comments/by Joseph Backholm

If there’s one thing today’s secular progressive enjoys, it’s telling Christians how to be Christians.

It feels funny when it happens. A bit like getting combat training from Jane Fonda or Cindy Sheehan.

But they mean well.

And they know a verse. Their favorite verse is Matthew 7:1, which says “judge not lest ye also be judged.” They quote it every time a Christian expresses an opinion because their years of deep theological study have shown them that Matthew 7:1 means it’s wrong to have an opinion. About anything. After all, an opinion is a judgment and you can’t do that.

Says so right there.

Red letters even.

The urge to lecture Christians on how to be Christian is almost irresistible in the dispute over whether businesses can be forced to participate in same-sex weddings.

“I thought you were a Christian. Aren’t Christians supposed to follow the law?”

For the moment, let’s put aside the far-from-resolved debate over whether the law really does mandate involuntary servitude for same-sex weddings.

For the purpose of this conversation, we will assume that it does.

Shouldn’t Christians just obey the law?

In his Letter from a Birmingham Jail, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote one of the greatest commentaries ever written about what Christian citizenship requires.

It is also instructive to remember the context in which the letter was written. It was a letter written to his fellow clergymen who were concerned about his activities.

At the time, not everyone appreciated his demonstrations the way we do today.

Specifically, they expressed “anxiety over [his] willingness to break laws”. He acknowledged the apparent contradiction in urging people to obey the Supreme Court’s decision of 1954 outlawing segregation in the public schools and demonstrating in ways that the law forbid.

“How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?” he asked rhetorically.

His response is instructive both for the Christian and for those who seek to understand what motivates Christians,

“The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that “an unjust law is no law at all.”

Well how do we know whether a law is just or unjust?

A just law is a man made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.

And this is where everyone starts to get uncomfortable. Is that MLK or Jerry Falwell?

Then he gives some examples:

An unjust law is a code that a numerical or power majority group compels a minority group to obey but does not make binding on itself. 

I wonder if that would include laws that let one person decline to bake a cake with a message they disagree with but not another person. Doesn’t he understand that these people offend me?

The left isn’t going to condemn MLK anytime soon because they like what he did. But their failure to appreciate or even acknowledge why he did it causes them to miss a much larger point.

Fundamental to Christianity is the idea that there is a law higher than man’s law.

The compulsion to obey God regardless of what the law says is the reason the Civil Rights movement was a movement of Christians. It is the reason Quakers violated the law to be an integral part of the Underground Railroad. It is why Christians rallied against the ancient practice of exposure in which infants were set out to die immediately after birth. It is why Christians worked in India to eliminate the practice of burning widows on the funeral pyres of their husbands.

This isn’t an attempt to provide an exhaustive history of Christianity. I’m confident I don’t need to remind you of the challenges the Christian church has had. That’s what President Obama is for.

But context is important.

The reason Christians violated the law to free slaves, save babies from exposure, and rescue widows from funeral pyres is the same reason Christians today feel they cannot be part of a same-sex wedding ceremony. We are bound to a higher law.

And before you start lecturing your Christian friends about why their position is actually not the Christian position, stop and ask yourself this question. “Do I actually know what I’m talking about?” If you haven’t read a Bible in a year, the answer is likely no.

Besides, the fact that you may not understand why someone feels something is wrong should not prohibit you from respecting their conscience anyway.

Nevertheless, the idea that there is a law that is above government is not simply just a Christian idea, it is an American idea as well.

The Declaration of Independence reminds us that our rights are endowed by our creator not our government and that governments are created to secure rights, not to create them.

We are a constitutional republic (rather than a democracy) with a Bill of Rights specifically because our Founders understood that the majority can be wrong; a position that assumes a moral law exists above legislated law.

Therefore, even if everyone knows I’m a terrible, horrible, very bad guy, even ninety-nine percent of the public can’t vote to take away my right to free speech, the free exercise of religion, or a fair trial.

Your rights transcend your political popularity and the government exists to protect those rights, not appease the mob.

This structure protects us all because, as the gay lobby has so clearly demonstrated, neither political popularity nor political powerlessness are necessarily permanent conditions.

While the right not to participate has historically been protected by the First Amendment’s guarantee to the Free Exercise of religion, some now claim the obligation to participate is required by the “duly enacted” non-discrimination statute.

The majority said you can’t use religion as an excuse to “discriminate”, so you can’t.

But the majority isn’t supposed to be able to “duly enact” away the First Amendment. That’s why it’s the First Amendment.

But again, we’re assuming none of that matters.

In a world in which the law is in conflict with the Christian conscience, the response from many on the left is a cold, “Just obey the law.”

To which the florist responds, “I will obey the law, I just won’t obey your law.”

And from his perch in heaven, Martin Luther King Jr. says, “You go girl!”

P.S.  Apparently, there are some leftist Democrat nut-jobs who would not only want to do away with our Second Amendment rights too, but also advocate killing the five million Americans who own guns given by that right! And…this guy wanted to be a Congressman??!! Where does the insanity end?
