Civil Disobedience?

Civil disobedience and anti-Lordship earns God's judgment. Moreover, God doesn't look away at the sin of professing Christians, as nearly all "Christians" think.
1Pe 4:15 Make sure that none of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a troublesome meddler;
1Pe 4:16 but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to glorify God in this name.
1Pe 4:17 For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?

How Islam Progressively Invades The West

Here is the progression of Islam's take over of the West, which we're seeing now:

Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life,” Dr. Hammond notes in his book. “Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.”
Their takeover of a country, what Dr. Hammond refers to as “Islamization,” begins when the population of Muslims reaches a critical mass, and they being to agitate for various privileges.
Open, free, democratic societies are particularly vulnerable. “When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well,” he notes.
This is how it works, according to Dr. Hammond:
When the Muslim population remains under 2% in a country, they will be seen primarily as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the current situation in:
United States — Muslim 0.6%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1.8%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%
As the Muslim population reaches 2% to 5%, they begin to recruit from ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, within prisons and street gangs. This is happening in:
Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%
“From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population,” Dr. Hammond notes. “For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food” and increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature such food on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. This is happening in:
France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%
Soon they begin to apply pressure to allow Sharia law within their own communities (sometimes ghettos).
“When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions,” Dr. Hammond notes. “In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.” These tensions are seen on a regular basis in...

Examples of this currently happening:
Hundreds of predominantly Iraqi migrants who have travelled through Europe to reach Finland are turning back, saying they don't want to stay in the sparsely-populated country on Europe's northern frontier because it's too cold and boring.
Migrants have in recent weeks been crossing back into Sweden at the Haparanda-Tornio border just an hour's drive south of the Arctic Circle, and Finnish authorities have seen a rise in the number of cancelled asylum applications.
"You can tell the world I hate Finland. It's too cold, there's no tea, no restaurants, no bars, nobody on the streets, only cars," 22-year-old Muhammed told AFP in Tornio, as the mercury struggled to inch above 10 degrees Celsius (50 Fahrenheit) on a recent blustery grey day.

Muslim invaders refuse to eat free food in Italy while Italians go hungry:
“There are thousands of Italians living in poverty and who aren’t even eating one meal a day, let alone two or three,” he said.
“They’re not complaining that the food isn’t good, but that it is not the food of their countries. But when you’re hosted in someone’s home, for example, you eat their food, right? It’s like on the many occasions I’ve been hosted in England, I don’t expect to eat spaghetti.”
In Greece the Muslim migrants refused the bottled water distributed by workers because it had a Red Cross was on the box.

~The Gateway Pundit

In France:
Afterwards the woman visited a camp and the illegal immigrants were complaining to her that “the food is not good.” The ungrateful illegals then took the food and threw it on the ground.

~The Gateway Pundit
In Canada:
Despite Canada’s reputation for casting a very broad social safety net and a Human Rights Code that aggressively punishes acts of discrimination, Austin Lewis, a 21-year-old paralyzed man confined to a wheelchair since a disease attacked his spinal cord when he was 8 years old, has just been told he has one less option for government-subsidized housing.

The problem? He's not a Muslim.


Christian migrants in German asylum centres are living under persistent threat, with many fearing for their lives as the hardline Sunni majority within the migrant population attempts to enforce Sharia law in their new host nation. The situation is so bad that Christians claim they live like “prisoners” in Germany, and some have even returned to Middle East.

Mark Dever Equates Millennial Views As The Same As What One Eats Or Drinks

Proving that liberals in "Christianity", even Calvinists, are putting doctrines into the Romans 14 category of personal preference, so that no one dare judge them wrong or worse, heretical:

"Therefore for us to conclude that we must agree upon a certain view of alcohol, or a certain view of schooling, or a certain view of meat sacrificed to idols, or a certain view of the millennium in order to have fellowship together is, I think, not only unnecessary for the body of Christ, but it is therefore both unwarranted and therefore condemned by scripture."

~Mark Dever as quoted by Justin Taylor

He puts the issue of Christ's millennial kingdom as a matter of preference like food or drink, when Scripture clearly teaches Christ will reign for 1,000 years. What Dever is saying then, is that the End is unknowable and doesn't matter. So why would Jesus command fourteen times that John repeatedly to write down these words that "are faithful and true" if they don't matter? The King's reign and how things happen at the End don't matter?

Folks this is Post-Modernism as it's "finest". It is doctrinal triage. This is sin actually. Scripture clearly states:

Rev 1:1  The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,
Rev 1:2  who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw.
Rev 1:3  Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near.

Rev 1:10  I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet
Rev 1:11  saying, "Write what you see in a book and send it to the seven churches, to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea."

Rev 19:9  And the angel said to me, "Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb." And he said to me, "These are the true words of God."

Rev 19:11  Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.

Rev 21:5  And he who was seated on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." Also he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."

Rev 22:7  "And behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."

Rev 20:1  Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain.
Rev 20:2  And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years,
Rev 20:3  and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he might not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be released for a little while.
Rev 20:4  Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 
Rev 20:5  The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection.
Rev 20:6  Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years. 
Rev 20:7  And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison

Rev 22:7  "And behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."

Rev 22:18  I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, 
Rev 22:19  and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. 

Basically they deny the End as most of them are now denying the Beginning. I'm not sure what Dever's view is on the Beginning, but given his low view of the Word of God that is knowable, faithful, and true, I suspect even IF he holds to the Genesis account of Creation in six literal days, he likely sees evolution as an optional view as well.

Dever also states:

"So if you’re a pastor and you’re listening to me, you understand me correctly if you think I’m saying you are in sin if you lead your congregation to have a statement of faith that requires a particular millennial view. I do not understand why that has to be a matter of uniformity in order to have Christian unity in a local congregation."

And this would therefore be a condemnation to his friend John MacArthur and for all dogmatic pastors and churches who side on Scripture's own dogmatism on Truth on the End. Is anyone getting this?

"The View" Views Nurses As Angry, Wannabe Doctors

After co-hosts Michelle Collins and Joy(less) Behar aired a segment where they ridiculed a nurse who participated in the Miss America contest, the embattled gabfest found itself consumed by social media blowback, which eventually resulted in the loss of five major advertisers: Johnson & Johnson, Eggland’s Best, Party City, Snuggle and McCormick.
Wednesday, in the hopes of containing the fallout, the women offered an on-air apology. According to Nicole Arbour, a guest co-host, the apology was far from sincere. She claims that after the apology, while the show was not on the air, the ladies went right back to trashing nurses, ‘Yeah, that’s not a real profession. They want to be doctors.’
The nasty, catty, snobby, elitism of “The View” is finally coming home to roost.
So full of themselves, so desperate for “controversy” and out-of-touch with the everyday woman, not only are the show’s ratings in the dumpster, the co-hosts are now openly and gleefully insulting those who dare not be elites — you know, like those dumb hicks who become nurses as opposed to mouthy hens on a low-rated talk show.
Now that most mainstream comedians bow to Power and political correctness, all that’s left is smut and mocking the Powerless.
~Excerpts, Breitbart
The night of the pageant Collins also reportedly posted tweets about Johsnon, and after getting backlash from nurses on social media wrote; 'I mean it is a little funny the hidden anger you nurses possess.' 
“Johnson & Johnson values and appreciates nurses and we respect the critical role they play in our healthcare system,” the company told TheWrap. “We disagree with recent comments on daytime television about the nursing profession and we have paused our advertising accordingly.”
Egglands’s Best was quick to follow suit, and released a statement saying the company has also pulled its advertisements from the show.
~Breitbart on advertisers dropping "The View"

This is a very liberal show with angry liberal feminist women who have little maturity and self control. It is not wise to fill one's mind with something so ridiculous.

Christ or Philosophy

My friends, I do not believe it is preaching Christ and him crucified, to give our people a batch of philosophy every Sunday morning and evening, and neglect the truth of this Holy Book. I do not believe it is preaching Christ and him crucified, to leave out the main cardinal doctrines of the Word of God, and preach a religion which is all a mist and a haze, without any definite truths whatever. I take it that man does not preach Christ and him crucified, who can get through a sermon without mentioning Christ's name once; nor does that man preach Christ and him crucified who leaves out the Holy Spirits work, who never says a word about the Holy Ghost.


Col 2:8  See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. 

Politics and Christianity: a parallel

I've often said that if you see what is going on in politics, you will see it's parallel in "Christianity". With a little bit of personal literary license, allow me to demonstrate:
So those of us who cherish those, stand up and defend them, all of a sudden we're to blame? All of a sudden it's our fault for talking about the biblical and social issues? And what it invariably always comes back to, what all of that really means is, "Would you stop talking --" and it's not aimed at just me, by the way. "Would you stop talking about abortion, it's just killing us. Never gonna change it. We're losing the women. We're losing the Millennials. We're losing the unchurched. This old-fashioned fuddy-duddy kind of stuff, just forget it, don't talk about it. We can't win people over, never gonna win the world."
Isn't it interesting how the liberals and the world continue to tell us what we have to do to win approval, as though they are interested in that. We can't win their approval unless we support amnesty along with them. We can't win unless we support gay marriage...We can't win unless we understand to shut up about abortion and, quote, unquote, the social and biblical issues.
…and what that means is you better stop talking about conservative Christianity, 'cause if you talk about that, you're never gonna get the moderates, you're never gonna win the unchurched. So the “moderate” Christians in that instance want us to get rid of our primarily identity and strength under the premise we can't get unchurched or millennials to agree with us and be a "Christ-follower" because conservative Christianity , nobody wants it, it's too big a negative and all that.

Now, the actual article or transcript was from Rush Limbaugh on the Liberals and Conservativism, in "Social Issues Don't Hurt Republicans".

A Call To Separation

"Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and the Devil? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols?" 2 Corinthians 6:14-16
"The days in which we are living are marked by the spirit of compromise. On every side we behold unholy mixtures, ungodly alliances, unequal yokes. Many professing Christians appear to be trying how near to the world they may walk—and yet go to Heaven!
'Do not be yoked together with unbelievers.' We are fully persuaded, that it is disregard of this commandment, for a command it is, which is largely responsible for the low state which now prevails so generally among Christians, both individually and corporately. No wonder the spiritual pulse of many churches beats so feebly.
How many Christians are members of so-called "churches," where much is going on which they know is at direct variance with the Word of God—either the teaching from the pulpit, the worldly attractions used to draw the ungodly, and the worldly methods employed to finance it or the constant receiving into its membership of those who give no evidence of having been born again. Believers in Christ who remain in such "churches" (?) are dishonoring their Lord.
'For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and the Devil?' How explicit and emphatic are the terms used there! No excuse whatever is there, for failing to understand the terms of this exhortation, and the reason with which it is supported."

2Co 6:17 Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, 18 and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty."
"Says the Lord Almighty." This is the only time the divine title "Almighty" is found in all the twenty-one Epistles of the New Testament! It seems to be brought in here for the purpose of emphasizing the sufficiency of our Resource. As another has said, "Let any Christian act on the Command of separation given in 2 Corinthians 6:14-17, and he will find his path so beset with difficulties and so tending to arouse the hostility of all, that if his eyes are not kept fixed on the Almighty God who has thus called him out—he will surely have a breakdown." But let it be noted that these promises are conditional; conditional on obeying the preceding exhortations. Yet if the heart lays hold of this blessed inducement, then obedience to the command will be easy and pleasant!

Matt Chandler: God speaks outside of His Word

Matt Chandler, president of "Acts 29" (there is no Acts 29 in Scripture, it only goes up to chapter 28 so they are adding to it), who is a Charismatic and New Calvinist seeks special mystical revelation from God instead of just going to the Word where He has already spoken:

Time mark 3:10:"Here's what we'll do. We'll ask God what he wants us to do and we'll write it down. That sounds like voodoo to me. I almost err on the side of bibliolotry...Alright?(3:20) But it's evident from Scripture that God speaks outside of His Word. (3:40) God is not going to contradict His word, but He definitely speaks outside of it." And so it begins. Their "vision" from God. Because His Word is not enough for these Calvinist Charismatics.

God's final speaking was through His Son and anyone who adds or detracts from Scripture will incur God's curse:

Heb 1:1  Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets,
Heb 1:2  but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.
Heb 1:3  He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

Heb 1:4  having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

Rev 22:18  I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, 
Rev 22:19  and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. 

Psa 138:2  I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word. 

Chandler's view of Scripture is in error, and he does not almost err on the side of "bibliolotry". Not only does that not exist, Chandler clearly and repeatedly states his low view of Scripture by going OUTSIDE OF IT TO HEAR GOD'S VOICE. Experience over Scripture is always deceptive. Always.

Find Jesus where you may, He is the antagonist of those who would lessen the authority of Holy Scripture. “It is written” is His weapon against Satan, His argument against wicked men. The learned of this hour scoff at the Book and accuse of Bibliolatry those of us who reverence the Divine Word; but in this they derive no assistance from the teaching or example of Jesus.—Spurgeon

Not a word derogatory of Scripture ever fell from the lips of Jesus Christ; but evermore He manifested the most reverent regard for every jot and tittle of the inspired Volume. Since our Savior, not only before His death, but after it, took care to commend the Scriptures to us, let us avoid with all our hearts all teaching in which Holy Scripture is put into the background.--Spurgeon

Morality In Babies Flies In The Face of Evolutionists and Psychologists

It is fascinating how quickly human babies learn about the world around them. But how soon can they distinguish "good" from "bad"? Some Yale psychologists wanted to find out, and their research results fly in the face of Freud and other evolutionary humanists.

Yale professor Paul Bloom and his team tested infants and toddlers by using puppets to portray "naughty" and "nice" actions. They found that from the age of six months, babies differentiated good from bad by overwhelmingly choosing to hold the nice puppet over the mean one.1 Where did this sensibility come from, and why is it so evident at such a young age?  

Bloom summarized his research for The New York Times, saying it was clear that what is now known of baby morality is exactly the opposite of what was taught by the great 20th-century psychologists Sigmund Freud, Jean Piaget, and Lawrence Kohlberg.2 These evolutionary humanists asserted that babies are "amoral animals" upon which society stamps its own particular moral guidelines. But this came from their belief that humans are merely "naked apes" obsessed with God, or that in early life humans reflect their primate origins, not from observations or careful study.
Instead, humans are evidently born with an innate moral sense that is not dependent on external affirmation. For example, "even a 4-year-old knows not only that unprovoked hitting is wrong but also that it would continue to be wrong even if a teacher said that it was O.K."2
Given secular psychology's overall premise that "biological evolution and cultural experience conspire to shape human nature," how does Bloom accommodate the odd fact that babies possess a "prewired understanding" of a cross-culturally consistent list of universal wrongs?

This is what Scripture has said, as God the Creator has already spoken on the nature of Man:

Isa 1:5  Where will you be stricken again, As you continue in your rebellion? The whole head is sick And the whole heart is faint.

Psa 51:5  Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.

Psa 58:3  The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray from birth, speaking lies.

Pro 22:15  Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline drives it far from him. 

Pro 29:15  The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother

Rom 3:9  What then? Are we Jews any better off? No, not at all. For we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin
Rom 3:10  as it is written: "None is righteous, no, not one
