jesus Christ: Enemy of Satan, and two thousand years of moral legacy, benefit to mankind

December 21, 2012

In reply to the news that the shooter in Newtown was a Satanist who had a web page so dedicated, according to a fellow high school student, one response was that we should therefore squash “all religious fundamentalism”…

So to stop Satanists from blowing away little kids (who would not stop anyway) they would instead blow away

#1 Mother Theresa caring for the dying poor,

#2 William Wilberforce getting slavery abolished in the British Empire,

#3 David Livingston for stopping a massacre of Africans by Arabs in the jungle,

#4 the Abolitionists campaigning against slavery in the U.S.,

#5 Saint Patrick sharing the love of Christ and a love for books and a hate for slavery with the Irish,

#6 the Irish sharing the love for books with the English and a hate for slavery,

#7 the Irish and the British restoring learning and sharing their books with the European continent invited by Charlemagne after the pagans burned them all,

#7a the centers of learning that evolved from Charlemagne’s into the universities of today,

#8 Martin Luther liberating the minds of millions from the servitude of penance and the idolatry of relics,

#9 Isaac Newton, father of modern science, who said science was “thinking God’s thoughts after him”,

#10 orphanages that evolved from the practice of Christians in the Roman Empire raising children from the abandoned infants at their doorstep,

#11 Saint Francis tending to lepers and protesting the military Crusades and making peace with the king of Egypt,

#12 the Amish that never blow anybody away and are very zealous about their faith to the extent of caring for each other and even the family of a deranged individual that blew away several of their children,

#13 the Salvation Army feeding, clothing, and housing tens of thousands of indigents and poor for a century and a half,

#14 Charles Darwin rebuking critics of missionaries, thankful that world travelers had to worry less about cannibals in the far-flung islands, expressing great relief at seeing the cross atop a building as they approached those isles,

#15 missionaries who taught the Chinese to abandon the practice of throwing babies into the “baby ponds”,

#16 missionaries who founded the first schools many places ever saw around the world,

#17 the major Ivy League universities like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, in the United States today that were founded by Christians to advance the knowledge of the Bible (taken over now by demagogues who defend witches and Satanists from criticism by Christians, go figure)

#18 the founders of almost all the major branches of modern science who were Genesis-believing creationists,

#19 the Red Cross founded and named by Christian believers,

#20 the Christian pastors that put pressure on the atheists and Darwinists, demanding that the New York zoo free Ota Benga go free, the Pygmy that they had kept in a cage as the “missing link”,

#21 Russ Humphreys, who predicted a bulls eye calculation for the magnetic field strengths of the planets Uranus and Neptune based on Genesis One, with the NASA scientists orders of magnitude off,

#22 Ron Paul, champion of the Constitution, indisputably the most honest Congressman the United States has had in our lifetimes and who never traded his vote for material advantage..

#23 the champions of individual rights, devout Christians like Patrick Henry and Gouverneur Morris who made the Bill of Rights a condition for union…

…and so many more outstanding lights of love and sanity in American history who showed examples of the love of Jesus Christ in their works…

Rick Warrren, False Prophets, Pharisees, and the Praise of Men

Jesus himself warned about the enemies of the Lord’s flock: wolves in sheep’s clothing who would lead his people astray.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.-Matthew 7:15

Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle. –Ezekiel 34:22

Here comes Rick Warren pretending to be an evangelical pastor, all the while showing fruits of anything but Biblical.

“By their fruits ye shall know them”, and “..judge righteous judgment”, the scripture says.

Did Jesus invite the Pharisees over to a meeting so he could tell his disciples what they thought about things? That’s what Rick Warren did, invited a person he knew believed in allowing prenatal infanticide.

Did Jesus ever steal even one thing that he or his disciples ever ate? Did he ever ask the Romans to help the poor with the moneys that the tax collectors were extorting from the subjects of the Roman Empire?

What did Jesus do when he saw the abuse by the money-changers and the merchants against the poor people who were sheep Ezekiel’s prophecy was talking about?

He made a long very nasty whip and drove those evil thieves out of the temple.

Rick Warren invited their enablers over to “feed” his congregation. Ezekiel called it “trampling them” underfoot and soiling their ground.

Proverbs 1:11-14 warns us not to cast in our lot or share “one purse” with evil men: and yet Rick Warren has bragged about working with enemies of the Gospel in some of the “charity” groups he works with, and he pays his dues to get into the world economic conference in Davros, Switzerland, where the money changers and the merchants of Hoseah 12:7 hang out and share ideas ([He is] a merchant, the balances of deceit [are] in his hand: he loveth to oppress.).

He hobnobs with the author of confusion by using half a dozen different Bible “versions” in almost every article he ever writes, and using 15 –fifteen!– different such variations from the Bible in his first book about purpose.

He preaches a “social gospel”, which really means a “socialist gospel”. He pretends that his original idea is to help the poor. This is a major insult en grande against all the godly saints who have been healing and helping the poor ever since the earliest followers of the disciples. “Such as [they] had” they gave to those who needed it.

Rick advocates using the money governments steal from their subjects, but does not denounce the theft.

Almost 2,000 years before there was even such a baby as Rick Warren, before his members were written in his mother’s womb at conception (Psalm 137), women were leaving their babies at the front doors of the homes of Christian couples because they knew that baby would be well taken care of.

Two centuries before Rick Warren, God used William Wilberforce for a one-man campaign against the evil scourge of slavery. And fifteen centuries before even William Wilberforce, the man we know as St. Patrick shamed his followers and indirectly eventually the entire European continent into giving up slavery, until its resurgence met William Wilberforce and his mentor, the repentant former slave trader John Newton.

Long before Rick Warren got his congregation, the one we know as “Mother Theresa” was caring for the most outcast of all societies anywhere. I believe she bore the fruits of salvation, and I was impressed with the fact that in almost all her talks it was always Jesus this, Jesus that, Jesus all the time.

Rick Warren’s problem is that he seeks the praise of men rather than the praise of God, which is why he lets his underling proselytes do the dirty work that Saul did in Acts 7 and 8 before Saul was changed into Paul.

At least of the Pharisees Jesus could tell his followers to do “what they say”, even while telling them not to do what they do, not to follow their example. You can do what Rick Warren says when he is right, but not when he is wrong, and certainly do not follow his example lest ye bear the same fruits.

Briefest commentary about slavery

October 20, 2012

The United States today, with all the socialist confiscatory taxation and micro-dictated rules for all the citizens to obey, is still one of the nations with most freedom, where most of the anti-freedom laws, rules, and practices are implicit although very real. Slavery is when the master has the power to tell you what you can and cannot do and what you must do and confiscates your production, while leaving you whatever he wants to. It’s true that the government now takes almost half the average American income, almost all of it to spend on the whims of the rulers –not counting the inflation stealth tax— but in terms of economic slavery there are other “advanced” developed nations worse.

Slavery was universal in the “civilized” worlds of all the world empires up to the Roman Empire. Only with its decline and the ascendancy of the influence of Christ‘s and St. Patrick‘s anti-slavery legacy did slavery begin to fade away in Europe.

I am an equal basher of both halves of the two-party cartel that makes the rules that keep others out of government, but since most ignorant comments are directed against Republican Party I try to balance it out. I especially hate lying revisionist history about the members of this duopoly.
