Is Germany a Christian Nation?

The following paragraph comes from this article…

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/oct/26/martin-luthers-reformation-anniversary-stirs-germa/

“Many Germans embraced the newcomers, but others in the nation’s economically weak, culturally homogenous East feared the influx of Muslims would strike at the heart of the German identity. It was a paradox: Many feared a too-Christian attitude toward the stranger and the refugee could put into question Germany’s very identity as a Christian nation.”

 

The liberals at the Washington Times have come close to hitting the nail on the head for once.  The actual paradox is the term, “Christian nation”.

Might as well say a “saved lost person” or “a round square.”  Christianity and nations are not compatible, at least the Christianity of the New Testament.  We know that the Roman Catholic Church is not a New Testament Church and they have plenty of dealings with nations, aka “fornication” in Rev 17. But not any church that is following the commands of the New Testament.

There are rules in the New Testament that command our submission to government (Rom 13, 1 Pet 2) but nothing about what we are to do when WE are in government.  WHY? Because that is not the realm of Christians.  We would not be able to follow the commands of Christ and maintain a stable government in his name.  THAT is the paradox.

One time Pontius Pilate, the governor of Judea, got into a political discussion with Jesus Christ himself (We are to be “Christ”ians are we not???).  This is recorded in John 18.

Verse 36 says, “Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

We know the word, “NOW” is important because his kingdom will come in the future.  It did not come with the Protestant Reformation or the inauguration of old Trumpy.  Paul was so busy fighting with the powers that are way over the Donald’s head (Eph 6) that he had to remind his followers to not forget to pray “for them that are in authority.” (I Tim 2:2)  The prayer is not “that Christians would get involved in Politics through Capital Connections.” or that we would rebel against taxation without representation in order to set up a New Israel so that we could preach the Gospel….. blah, blah, blah…

This issue of immigration is a good litmus test for Christians to see if they are Bible Believing Christians or just “Patriots for ‘Murica” who happen to have some correct doctrine.  Here comes an illegal immigrant.  He is from a Muslim or a Communist country where the open witness of the Gospel is illegal and this law is strictly enforced.  A Christian wants that man to be saved just like God does.  Where will he have a better chance of getting saved?  America or Afghanistan or Libya?  Obviously, he has a better chance of getting saved or at least hearing the Gospel in America.  So to a Bible Believer, the choice is clear: let them come to America and open the borders.  There is no doubt, that is the Christian thing to do.

But open borders are a horrible idea for a nation, whose first job is to protect itself and it’s people.  According to the Preamble to the US Constitution, government’s job is to “form a more perfect union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquillity, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”

Let us go point by point:

“Form a more perfect union” – Letting in Muslims will destroy that.

“Establish Justice” – Muslims will destroy that.

“Insure domestic Tranquillity” – Muslims will definitely destroy that.

“Provide for the common defence” – Tough to do when you might be letting in the enemy.

“Promote the general Welfare” – Tough to do when you are letting in a foreign religion that has different views on general welfare.

“Secure the blessings of liberty” – Can’t let in a people that doesn’t believe in liberty.

So we see that letting in immigrants from the Middle East en masse would be a death blow to our nation.  But as a Christian, we ought to pray that more and more of them would come to this place where they have a far greater chance of getting saved.

The question of the day is this: are you a Bible Believer or an American?  Sometimes, you can’t be both and on the issue of immigration, you cannot be both.

I say, LET THEM IN AND PREACH TO THEM.

Conspiracy Theories

In Bible Believing circles, conspiracy theories are a hot topic.

We all know Christians who have gone off the deep end and moved into the wilderness to “get off the grid” but have done nothing for the Lord in the last 20 years.  Obviously, there is a danger in going overboard on Conspiracy theories.

Nevertheless, there is SOME profit in understanding that our understanding of the last 100 years of history makes more sense when viewed through the lens of what would commonly be referred to as “Conspiracy theories.”

One of the theories that this blog has taken a tough stand against, is the idea that Bible Believers should get involved in politics in order to try and “save ‘Merica”.  Many big shot pastors and evangelists are going around this country and acting like the Bible teaches that we should try and change the direction of this country through sending Bible school graduates to DC to try and make a difference.

If one understands the truth about this country, no one would ever teach that this country CAN be saved.  “The wicked shall be cast into hell and all the nations that forget God.”  The common illustration is a man trying to bail water out of the Titanic.  Evangelists will teach that we should at least try to save the Titanic.  This illustration is faulty because if ‘Merica is the Titanic, it is not in the process of sinking.  It is at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.  Who would bail water at that point?  Maybe that’s a bad question because you might be able to find an evangelist that IS that stupid…

The way to prove that this country is sunk is 9/11.  If this country is so crooked that it would purposely stage a terror attack in order to force in the Patriot Act and wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, then that country is not worth any effort trying to save it.

Our nation’s history is riddled with conspiracy theories that turned out to be true:

  1. Kuwaiti girl’s testimony that got us into the first Gulf War.
  2. Watergate.
  3. Gulf of Tonkin incident that got us into the Vietnam War.
  4. MK-ULTRA’s mind control techniques.
  5. The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment.
  6. The government’s advance knowledge of the sinking of the Lusitania to start WWI.
  7. The government’s advance knowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor to start WWI.

That is how our government works.  The ship has sunk.

I said all that to introduce the idea that all Bible Believer’s believe in some Conspiracies.  

People will argue all day about the exact definition of a Bible Believer.  But one condition that is almost without debate is that no Bible Believer believes in the Theory of Evolution.  Some proponents of the Skip Theory (no gappers) think that the Gap Fact is a compromise, but even the most extreme believer in the Gap believes that Darwinian Evolution is a fact.

Bible Believers are forced to admit that there is a CONSPIRACY and that all the scientists of the world are working together under the auspices of the Devil in order to teach kids that men descend from monkeys.  This conspiracy’s ultimate goal (or the purveyors of this conspiracy’s goal) is to teach men that all existence is an accident and that nothing exists after death.  There is no soul because souls don’t fit into the evolutionary paradigm.  In their most open dialogue, the high priests of the religion of evolution will teach that since death is as natural as life, then there may come a time when killing men by the millions is as expedient as killing the wolves in Yellowstone or the Tasmanian Tigers.  This will culminate in the religion of the Antichrist and the deaths of so many that the Antichrist will make Hitler, Stalin, and Mao look like little kiddies.

All Bible Believers accept this conspiracy.

Another conspiracy that a Bible Believer holds to, is the conspiracy about modern Bible versions.   How in the world, modern scholars have duped the world into thinking that the Alexandrian-text type that represents less that 5% of available manuscripts represents the God honoured originals can only be labelled as a conspiracy.

Researchers Chris Pinto, David Daniels of Chick Publications, and Steven Avery are beginning to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Codex Siniaticus (Aleph) is a 19th Century forgery stolen by Tischendorf and lyingly presented as written in the 4th Century.  We now are forced to admit that modern scholarship is as corrupt on Bible manuscripts as it is on Evolution.  To believe contrary to the modern paradigm is to be a conspiracy theorist.  It shouldn’t bother a Bible Believer at all.

So knowing that all Bible Believers believe in some form of Conspiracy Theory, we shouldn’t be so averse to the idea that 9/11 was an inside job and that the devil rules the world through the Pope and the Pope through the Jesuits and the UN all the way down to the great puppets Obama and ole’ Trump.  We shouldn’t reject ideas like Geocentricity out of hand, but we should ask ourselves the only question that really matters, “What saith the Scripture?”

This should make you want to stay out of politics and science and move closer to the Lord Jesus Christ in desiring and praying for his soon return.

 

A Famous Patrick Henry Quote

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ.  For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here.”
~ Patrick Henry ~             

 

Saw this quote for a God and Country rally at an independent King James only Baptist Church.  Guess what?  Ole’ Patty was wrong.  

 

You can mine quotes from anywhere to prove anything and it means nothing if it is not backed up by facts.  

 

Fact: the legally binding, government endorsed Treaty of Tripoli says in Article 11:

 

“As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion;”

 

Ole’ Patty was wrong again.

 

King James Bible Believers need to get their facts straight and realize that no rally for “God and Country” will amount to anything in the Lord’s eyes.

 

Go to DC and see for yourself.  This country was founded by Masons.

Trump is controlled by the Pope

Look at this statement from a Catholic dinner event for the presidential candidates…

 

“We can also agree on the need to stand up to anti-Catholic bias.”

 

Trump said that.

 

One of the mysteries of the New Testament, that we are to be good stewards of, is the mystery of MYSTERY BABYLON.  Folks, you need to understand this, the Bible teaches anti-Catholic bias.  Trump wants to unite us against the Bible, by his own admission.

 

They say you can’t have your cake and eat it, too.  I say you can’t be a Bible Believer and cast your lot in with Donald Trump.
