PART ONE - SECULARISM

There are two big lies undermining Western civilization:

The persecution that Christians are enduring today is increasing. The shadows of what is to come will only increase with time as the church age draws to a close. There are two groups which are leading the charge: The secular-progressives and the Muslims. This post will deal with the first enemy of Christianity.

The Church of Militant Secular-Progressive Humanism

What do a bisexual female rabbi, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Methodist Church have in common?[1] Absolutely nothing. These three disparate groups recently combined for a bizarre spectacle on Capitol Hill protesting the Iraqi war. I have no problem if someone wants to protest the ongoing debacle that is unfolding in Iraq. Nor do I have a problem if a bunch of religious groups want to get together to issue a joint statement. What I do have a problem with is what these groups are preaching and teaching. Ecumenicalism is a bloodless gospel and is shoddy theology (see above). Any effort to deny the shed blood of Christ as the only atonement for sin is bad doctrine. The opposite of truth isn't error, it's pure death.

Support Our Troops

There can be no shallower statement issued by the self-serving left. Given their actions, why bother? Terrorists hide behind children while American troops are hamstrung by a long list of ROE's. News of success in the field is largely ignored by the press while any hints of wrongdoing by our military is given blanket coverage. Is it any wonder I get a little cynical?

The Hermit Kingdom

It should surprise no-one that North Korea is at the forefront of Christian persecution. Being found with a Bible in your possession sends you and your entire family to prison camp. North Korea is also in the business of arming Israel's enemies.

Free Speech Is Acceptable Provided We Agree With It.

That is if you happen to be rich, white and liberal. Or give generously to the Democratic Party. As the lovely Michelle Malkin reports, God help you if you make your dissatisfaction with MoveOn.org public. The difference between the German SS and MoveOn.org's lawyers? The latter are better dressed. The tactics are frighteningly similar though.

Forget about Islam. That's what students at Columbus State in Ohio are being told as efforts to bring Islamo-Fascism Week to campus[3] is shut down by the school's administrator. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was given a forum at Columbia University in NYC yet students at a public college are denied access to their own campus. The hypocrisy couldn't be starker. The censorship of unpopular speech and the use of intimidation is alive and well in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Two more miscellaneous links to close out this post.

Mark Of The Beast Update: The technology for this has already arrived. Right now it's simply a matter of logistics and the gaining of public support. One of the biggest enablers of the MOTB is credit card and debit card fraud. A microchip embedded in the card[2] will go a long way in preventing identity theft. It will also facilitate the greatest persecution of Christians just prior to the Second Advent. 'Chipping', as it's being called is already in use by veterinarians and cattle farmers. The jump to chip humans is not as big of a leap in public policy as you might think.

So long as we're here we'll still be helping the less fortunate. In West Bengal, flood relief by GFA workers are opening up doors for the Gospel. Hallelujah! Praise God for He is Most High!
