They sure didn't like questions like that.
Remember I see the left wing and right wing working together for deception: let this writer's essay explain.
So while I learned a lot from fellow Christians on Rapture Ready years ago, there was many disconcerting things going on there which this blog exposes too which included defenses of many worldly things.
Oddly many of the Christians seemed to be sincere and saved people while the mods seemed to be coming from outer-space as far as Christianity went and would defend the oddest things. Overall the board was very Pre-Trib and at that time very supportive of mainstream right-wing politics.
I would end moving on to other places. The other day while doing research for my Missler article, I was googling Dave Hunt and Missler for the Missler article and found this odd picture of Missler in "love beads" and Dave Hunt pictured together, [at this particular conference, PreTrib Study Group 2002] many big names are there, including those two and Tim LaHaye]. At this point I decided to go through the different Rapture Ready conferences as pictured: they cover almost a ten year span: after all I had posted on these folk's board before and was curious. Some famous teachers are present at some and not at others. As I looked through the pictures however, a lot did not sit right.
At this particular conference, "Pre-Trib Study Group 2007": the head of Rapture Ready, and other religious notables like John Ankerberg are present and pictured. But what floored me on the "Pre-Trib Study Group 2007" page was this picture:
Here is the caption that appears under this picture:
"It was no secret that Hank Hanegraaff got his head handed to him in the debate. Mile Hile brought this humorous prop to drive the point home."
Is anyone else like me disturbed at world famous pastor's laughing at a decapitated doll's head, that seems marked with occult uses of letters [Hank H's name] and other symbols? What is funny about THAT?
I like jokes and laughter same as many others but this one just totally creeped me out. Considering I have warned people of luciferian deception and "knowing deceivers" what is this a sign of? What ever it is, it isn't good. Even if this was really a bad joke with no further explanation, it seems to be the humor of very worldly people not world renowned pastors who have sought to convince us of their Bible knowledge and spiritual leading.
Other pictures at the various conferences over the years are disturbing as well. Some even seem to mock the Christians they purported to serve with their forum. The world sees many Christians who believe in 'Bible prophecy" as "tin hatters" even those who have not moved into what is considered "conspiracy theory" by the world. . This picture seems to mock all Christians who do believe in Bible Prophecy, why does everything seem like "game" to these folks? Many Christians even on the Rapture Ready boards were asked if they wearing their tin-foil every time they brought up an idea that was not mainstream. I consider the whole "conspiracy theory" phrase in some cases to be a phrase to used to cease independent thinking almost like telling people they are guilty of a 'thought crime"--1984 style but I digress. The Imman caption doesn't help much either.
Even a more recent conferences in 2009, featured "Imperial Storm Troopers from Star Wars" Many people posed with the storm trooper. What are those who warn about the New Age aspects of those movies instructing people to "follow the force" to think? What is the deal with cash boxes covered with crawly characters? Odd jokes about plates with 666 on their plates? OK, I don't want to read too much into the funny hats, even if this brings up thoughts of the Church of the Subgenius kind of humor, I don't share this kind of humor, but it all seems very strange.
It gets even worse then that, I'll let this picture speak for itself. Scroll down to the last one. Make your own judgements. Even an non-Christian believer I showed this particular picture to, said "Now that's disturbing". Christian ministries have enough problems, with those who are in it for the money and legitimate ministries being told they are "money grubbers" due to too many money-hungry TV-evangelists whose desire for wealth is well-known.
But after thinking about all of this, even if some explanations could be come up with for the other photos, that decapitated doll baby head joke being done among world renowned preachers was just too creepy and there's no excuse that will make that sound okay to me. Sorry. The fact that famous preachers were present and in on the joke, just creeps me out even more.
