Isa 58:6 [Is] not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
So many use religion for control, we see this world wide, all those who desire theocracy, those who use religion and God to issue their edicts, and rules, some on mega-world conquest trips like the Pope and the smaller preachers bonding with the politicians and more. Religion in its different flavors including the false versions of "Christianity" has been used as a 'control matrix" for the globe and for centuries. This is why Jesus Christ came to preach relationship with and freedom in Him.
When I watch these antics, and the desperation of human beings to be led by the nose and in chains giving up to control to the wicked of the world. Where is the freedom that is in Jesus Christ for those folks? There seems to be none, and what a shame. They would not be so desperate to cling to the nearest sinking life raft of a fellow fallen human being instead of standing on the Rock which is Jesus Christ.
Gal 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
I think God every single day, that He allowed me to come to know His truth, that no longer did I have to be under any Popes or priests, or false preachers, and to know that He is where true freedom and love lies.
Jhn 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
This is a widely known memorized and known Bible verse, one thing people should ask, do you know the truth that makes you free? A relationship with Jesus Christ, and not just following after man?
Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Many people are making a run for the prison cages of this world and Satan's bondage. Why don't they trust in Jesus Christ instead of man? Why don't they trust in Him to take care of them or lead the way? Why do they cling to these hirelings with such a tight fist, even as the betrayals are exposed. I have thought about some of those questions. All I know is that knowing Jesus Christ brings true freedom, I am not talking of freedom that some skew to excuse lasciviousness but true freedom in knowing God, where He is the most important above all else, and where the things of this world are nothing in comparison.
Gal 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
"The Rapture of the church is going to be the fourth rapture"?
That's a new one for me....
More and more I have realized since I wrote this article some months ago..how much the rapture teachings are deluding people, giving Christians this idea of "easy escape" and not preparing spiritually for what is coming. Remember there are a lot of saved people who believe in the rapture, this is something that took me even years to come to different conclusions about but with prayer God will show His children the truth about this.
What concerns me too is the people who believe Jesus's kingdom is coming to THIS EARTH, the millenial kingdom. I've been thinking about this more and more. How many believe Jesus Christ is going to set up shop here on THIS EARTH, instead of there being a new heaven and new earth. This seems to set up things for the Antichrist, in my opinion, I know some readers may disagree but think this one out.....
Why are so many of the preachers out there united on pre-trib? Even mid-tribbers seem to be rare, and post-tribbers as extinct as the Dodo bird. The majority of the evangelical church is united around the would be Rapture. I was planning to do an article soon on how the Rapture teachings came from the Jesuits, in more detail but need to do more study on that. Sometimes there are topics I have to get back too.
The Rapture is delusion especially geared for Americans, Christians know that persecution is coming to America that is already hitting other countries.
As for Creflo Dollar....check this out...
Saw this article doing other research today...it's a secular article but brings up good points. Read between the lines filtering out academia's politics:
"Republicanity: The GOP Transformation is Nearly Complete"?
Republicanity’s myths are being manufactured by the mythbuilders over at Wallbuilders. [snip].”
The myths of Republicanity are fairly obvious and easy to identify when uttered by the faithful: glorifying the Founding Fathers as saints, inserting God into the nation’s origins, and demonizing the US government when policy disagreements occur.
"Likewise, Republicanity is rife with ritual acts of the sacred variety. One of the most recent examples is the signing of yet another pledge, “The Marriage Vow—A Declaration of Dependence on Marriage and Family,” drafted by The Family Leader, an Iowa-based organization. Signing pledges (against raising taxes, for lowering the debt, agreeing that this is a “Christian nation”) is all the rage these days, with adherents of Republicanity understanding the public ritual act of participating as a demonstration of their own fidelity to certain core principles."
"Obedience to authority—at the moment embodied in prominent charismatic leaders like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Santorum (okay, this last one is short on charisma but people still seem to listen anyway)—is critical to the success of this religious movement, with the primary sacred textual sources legitimating the moral universe drawn from the Declaration of Independence and Constitution
While the author has some liberal rhetoric thrown in especially at the end, I think he is on to something here. Of course the left has it's own religion too, glorifying things from that end.
Watch this video. Didn't anyone learn their lesson from all the promotion of George W. Bush as a born again Christian? You think people would wake up to how these politicians use religion to get elected but it fools them every time. Just so you know Rick Perry is in with all the same Dominionists, such as who support Sarah Palin. Look at the church agencies and more involved with this initiative.
Of course by the use of something otherwise positive like PRAYER, they can bring in all churches into more unity and advance even more false political agendas:
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a possible contender for the Republican presidential nomination, has summoned the nation's governors to participate in "The Response," which he calls "a non-denominational, apolitical, Christian prayer service." The assembly, scheduled for August, has elicited indignation from the secular left, who decry the event as an unwarranted mingling of church and state.
Perry definitely has ties to the Seven Mountain Dominionists: see here.
"Texas Gov. Rick Perry has tried to distance himself from the many extreme activists he is working with to put on The Response prayer rally, like the pastor who labeled Oprah Winfrey the harbinger of the Antichrist and the self-proclaimed ‘Apostle’ who called the Statue of Liberty a “demonic idol.” But Perry is open about his ties to advocates of Seven Mountains Dominionism, an ideology which demands that fundamentalist Christians take total control over all aspects of society. Dominionism advocate Jim Garlow is directing “National Church Mobilization” for The Response and other Dominionist endorsers of The Response include Cindy Jacobs and David Barton. Even the American Family Association, which is the official host of the prayer rally, now promotes Seven Mountains Dominionism.
Today, Perry appeared on Barton’s radio show WallBuildersLive and announced that he has received support from televangelist James Robison,who is leading the effort to rally the Religious Right around a Perry campaign for the presidency (though of course the rally is “apolitical”). Perry also mentioned that he is working with Loren Cunningham and his “prayer warriors” to mobilize support for The Response."
I want folks to think out what this would all mean if this guy becomes the next president, of course the majority of Republican candidates are in with the Dominionists.
As for Loren Cunningham, the guy helping Rick Perry, I posted about him here very recently.
Before I write this, I think things were better when family and churches came together to help out elderly and disabled family members. Living with your family and being given a place rather then stuck away in a nursing home or elsewhere to let strangers take care of you was far superior. Of course times have changed, considering even the cost of prescription drugs, what family could afford to pay $1,000 dollars out of pocket for grandmother's per month drugs or even thousands more for medical care?
Whatever this debt ceiling outcome, I think bad things are coming to this country, while our tax base has been decimated via the dying economy and jobs sent overseas, now they are preparing to rip out the carpet underneath millions of Americans who depend on social security, and other help to make it day by day. It has been interesting for those who know that soon the gutter may await, and if it's not in August, that now they have prepped the country for major cut backs, where it's never their pay at risk, but those of the most vulnerable of our society. This week I traveled around a bit online, reading comments on Yahoo news stories, there are a lot of fearful people out there, and no one is speaking out for them.
I have realized over the years the "hate the poor" rhetoric has grown among "Christians" and now there is a movement in America to blame the poor, as the main cause of the Debt and that the only response now is to pull the carpet from underneath them so the country can save money. Both parties have jumped on this bandwagon.
You will never see these types point to the TRILLIONS of dollars still being spent to fight globalist wars in Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere or the cost of a certain new agency formed right after 9-11 that grew the government to gargantuan levels, or the fact the bankers got BILLIONS of our Tax payers money. No they will blame the poor and the few social safety nets there are. Do not forget that people paid into social security, some elderly people for 40-50 years paying into the system, who may now be told, "Sorry, but you're money is gone now!" Sounds like a Ponzi scheme. This blogger describes some of it. Be wary of few coarse words on there.
We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???????????
In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey . And now Pakistan .......home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!
Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!
The preachers in the pulpit have become spokesmen and protectors for the new world order system. They will blame the poor and always deflect blame from their true masters, the bankers and elites of this world. Keep in mine most of that aid sent overseas, the poor never see a dime.
Charles Stanley is one, notice what parts he leaves out. He will not blame the endless wars or banker bail-outs or address all the jobs being outsourced and the dismantlement of the manufacturing base, he will blame the poor, or any help for the poor and disabled though it's part of the budget is small compared to the cost of America playing police man to the world. He preaches against socialism...[socialism I am guessing as defined by him having to do with programs for the poor in America more then the blatant welfare we gave to the bankers]
There is a war going on against Jesus," he declared. "It's part of the strategy. The primary reason for this war against Him is He is interfering with the plan to make this a socialist nation. Mark it down. It is the truth."
So why add this?
"Mark this down for socialism because these three groups of people who do not contribute to the state ... are of no value: unborn babies, the elderly and those who are disabled," said the Atlanta pastor.
I found it interesting that someone posted on the link and wrote:
It is becoming very very very difficult to separate Evangelical Preachers and Pastors from Tea Party Politics, my only fear is that The Gospel of Jesus Christ is being misrepresented by such Pastors. So, the Church and Pastors had better get ready for the scrutiny and limelight that comes with dirty politics since they in essence they continuously declare themselves politicians...
He is right, on this blog, I have talked about how the Tea Party has been co-opted in the service of the elites to remove what safety nets exist for Americans [yes some can debate whether they were wise even at the start] but when we have millions of people who could be facing starvation or eviction, if these pastors and politicians got their way, what do they expect to happen? It really makes one wonder.
Chuck Colson [ecumenist with Rome] jumps on the bandwagon too.
While he is right about how the false worldviews and greed helped it along, notice who he blames and who he leaves out? He is another one who will play protection for the power-brokers.
I know I have been talking about a lot of politics on this blog lately but watching the "Christian" world march lockstep behind these guys is something that is growing even bigger. The marriage of evangelical Christianity to the hatred of the poor rhetoric is scary. Of course the poor are exploited by all the leftist types who preach liberation theology, and more control. The gospel speaks of helping the poor and those who are vulnerable, but the "religious" right wing shows their disdain day by day. I know life has changed when discussions of who could end up homeless due to all the changes have become part of daily conversation. For years these types have even managed to brainwash people into embracing things that will bring their own demise. Now they are working in America, to deflect blame for those who have profited from this country, but to lay it on the poor. Times are going to be changing very soon. Even the fact this was put on the table means things are very different now.
By the way, I found these liberal churches in a new group called "Circle of Protection" including the Roman Catholic church, protesting the removal of the social safety nets, praising social justice, but hey there is a catch, they advance globalism, America is supposed to still feed the rest of the world while they barely can take care of themselves. Anyone wonder why we are still sending money overseas we do not have?
"3.We urge our leaders to protect and improve poverty-focused development and humanitarian assistance to promote a better, safer world."
"Washington, DC, April 27, 2011
Evangelical, Roman Catholic, mainline Protestants, African-American, and Latino Christian leaders have joined together to defend the lives and dignity of poor and vulnerable people in the current budget debate. The release of this joint statement marks the strongest and most unified Christian voice in the budget debate. Signed by more than 50 Christian leaders, it states:
"As Christian leaders, we are committed to fiscal responsibility and shared sacrifice. We are also committed to resist budget cuts that undermine the lives, dignity, and rights of poor and vulnerable people. Therefore, we join with others to form a Circle of Protection around programs that meet the essential needs of hungry and poor people at home and abroad."
This was written in April so wasn't in response to the debt crisis, as I thought...
Watching the "religious right" mix together their brutal defense of globalism and their "cries for prayer" to cover up their misdeeds is enough to make a person sick. So when you watch these preachers cry about "socialism" none of them ever say a word about the "socialism" ie "free money" handed to the global elites.
Jam 2:6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?

"The Disturbing "Super Congress" that is being Created as Part of the Debt Negotiations"
"There is some very alarming news coming out of the debt negotiations. Hidden in any deal may be the creation of a "Super Congress" that would result in more power being placed in the hands of the super-elitists and dilute the influence of the average congressman. The left is most up in arms about this development, as it would likely mean that cuts to Medicare and Social Security would be easier to get through Congress, but it could also result in the elimination of tax credits for retirement savings plans and the elimination of the tax deduction for mortgage interest payments. The "Super Congress" would place more power in the hands of Washington D.C. power players and limit the power of the average congressman."
I read some comments on other new's articles [Google Super Congress] where one commenter said, this would be called a coup in other countries and another wrote sounds like 12 dictators.
See these articles too:
"Super Congress: Debt Ceiling Negotiators Aim To Create New Legislative Body"
"Super Congress' Idea Floated to Solve Debt Crisis"
Well the rule of law has ended in this country, probably long ago. The Soviets had something akin to this as well, called the "Central Committee"....on this wicked earth, tyranny always comes to fruition.

Campus Crusade Changes It's Name to "Cru"
I had a reader send this in [thanks for your emails and information], and also found more information on the Fanatic for Jesus blog.
Campus Crusade for Christ drops 'Christ'(USAToday)
The global evangelical para-church Campus Crusade for Christ is changing it's name to 'Cru."
The main idea -- according to a look at the change at Christianity Today -- is to evade the problematic word "crusade" and the passe term "campus" (which the massive group known for the Jesus Film, books, tracts and more has long outgrown) and face up to the fact that many of its branches already use different names.
But is Christ now "He who cannot be named," so to speak?
Here's what the soon-to-be-Cru site says:
We were not trying to eliminate the word Christ from our name. We were looking for a name that would most effectively serve our mission and help us take the gospel to the world. Our mission has not changed. Cru enables us to have discussions about Christ with people who might initially be turned off by a more overtly Christian name. We believe that our interaction and our communication with the world will be what ultimately honors and glorifies Christ.
I don't know if this means anything, LOL, but there is a rap band named CRU [maybe another spelling for CREW and CRU seems to be a popular name for wine-bars with one in Denver and the NYC area [founded while googling for this article]
Things get silly when there is such a desperate appeal to be relevant to young people. The saddest thing of all? Their shame when it comes to the name Jesus Christ, even if in this case, it's half of the name removed.
1Pe 4:14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy [are ye]; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
This is a video by a Calvary Chapel member named Scott Spages, go ahead and watch it.
Scott Spages writes on different websites, including this one where his bio states:
"Scott Spages’s lifelong fascination with history, economics and politics has led to him being a political activist for over 25 years. He leads Faith Forum at Calvary Chapel Ft. Lauderdale, which is a monthly meeting, special events, and active participation designed to empower Christians to impact America in the arenas of government and democracy through faith and education. [Check the Good News calendar.] He believes it is an essential component of the Great Commission that we know and profess the Christian heritage of America!"
Now back to the video.....
Hey some may sound good to you, what Christian loves socialism or think Obama is a great president? However, notice how he is a spokesman for the "right" side of the false NWO dynamic. For newbies, read this article: "Left Wing and Right Wing Are Both A Lie" I also have many articles about the false religious right, Dominionism and more, throughout this blog. He also eludes to the mythic version of history often promoted by the Dominionist right with the later references to George Washington.
He's fallen for the false "right" side of the NWO...How is the Republican party any different, when the Republican bail-outs happened, it was basically the Nazi "socialist program" when Hitler nationalized all the industries....[tax payers paying for the bail-outs for mega-bankers and multi-national companies?]
He refers to "The collective will of the people?" "we want this type of decision going on in the marketplace?"...Has he been asleep through 2008? He honestly thinks that this country with TSA strip searching our citizens, and selling out to the oligarchy even still even CARES about the "will" of the people? Even the markets have gone against the people of America in the sell out to globalism to exploit and oppress the rest of the world. We have been sold out to China in the meantime. There are many like him out there, who believe the same way, seeing what is wrong on one side and not the other.
He goes on to say: "Collective thought is a more relational way to go for society to go" The Visions of the Borg [remember Star Trek the Next Generation? come forth;. For years, I have written on message boards and elsewhere, the push to "collective thought", which used to be the mantra of the socialist left only, but now adapted by both sides, also called "the common good", is pure evil. The decent aspects of Western civilization were based on the "rights" of the individual. So many have forgotten this.
He goes forth to praise the Tea Party, the Tea Party is just as NWO as the rest of it, the Tea Party, while seeming to be a real grassroots movement at it's start and with many well meaning people, has been co-opted now being used by the wealthy bankers, to brainwash the populace in blaming the poor rather then questioning the trillions sent over seas.
OK, the video continues. Spages tells us, he wants the church more involved in the political system, that is a definite RED FLAG! He gives forth the usual theocracy line, he actually expects a true born again Christian as a president? The ignorance regarding even the existence of the new world order is not surprising, but sad to see.
This would be understandable, though lamentable, Spages would fit the category of many Christians, MANY of them out there, you know the kind of folks, who'd go to a Glenn Beck rally while being very sincere but deluded, the types who are RIGHTLY concerned about Obama, and socialism, but fooled by the religious right, and blinded to realities regarding the wicked leaders of this world.
It's shame, to see anyone fall for the false political dance, and so many pastors take this path but what is even worse, Spage heads a group called The Calvary Chapel Faith Forum at Bob Coy's Calvary Chapel Ft. Lauderdale church. I suspect there are probably many groups like this of all flavors out there.
Faith Forum is a Community Group at Calvary Chapel Ft. Lauderdale that meets monthly to learn about, discuss, and become involved in the politics of America. We host a broad range of topics and speakers. Our aim to make the world a better place to live by bringing Christianity into the “public square” and to honor God by pursuing justice and righteousness in our public policy and leadership. Our goal is to better inform and involve you! There’s no cost and you do not need to register. Just show up!
It's mission statement on the banner states: "Empowering Christians to impact America in the arenas of government and democracy through faith and education" It definitely has the 7 mountains flavor.
The website has this little video....where Bob Coy, basically does a "Have You Voted" infomercial...
Like Americans have a choice? We get Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, both chosen by the CFR or Bildenbergers. In a small town, one may get a valid vote for mayor and dog catcher but that's about it.
The "Are you Registered to Vote" banner is to the right on the website. They are gearing up for the 2012 election like many other religious right organizations. Bob Coy tells us, that these are people "we put in power"...sure that is what many believe....[I do not believe that voting is valid anymore, ie not really counted]. Some may disagree with me on this.
Now I want to show you this page. For a long time on this blog, I have spoken of Calvary Chapel's BAD POLITICS. The Boykin connections, the praise for the money-draining useless Middle Eastern wars but these links will tell you something and what Bob Coy's church supports. Now I know not everyone is going to be 100% in agreement with every link they post, I have ones I do not agree with I have used for information in articles, but some of these links will make you wonder...
Calvary Chapel Faith Forum Links
There is the usual array of "religious right" links...."American Center for Law and Justice", Eagle Forum", "The National Day of Prayer" but why is CATHOLIC VOTE on there seemingly as a valid source of information and go-to source? Remember my warnings how abortion and culture wars have been used to promote evangelical and Catholic unity?
A faith based educational program dedicated to informing all Americans about the critical issues in the public policy arena. A project of the Fidelis Center for Law and Policy, committed to producing powerful programs designed to help a new generation visualize and therefore create a Culture of Life."
But that's not the only Catholic group on there.
"Fidelis Center for Law & Policy
Fidelis (Latin for faithful) is the universal name for a group of Catholic-based political, legal, research, and educational organizations whose collective mission it is to formulate, promote, and defend public policies that uphold religious freedom, human life from conception to natural death, and the traditional institutions of marriage and family."
Looks to me like another example of false politics misleading like usual...
"The Republican Party just talks about not having to pay taxes," continues Dasher, a lector at St. Ann Catholic Church in West Palm Beach. "Then they borrow to pay for war."
Across the aisle is Scott Spages, who co-chairs Calvary Chapel’s monthly Faith Forum, a politics-themed gathering with an average attendance of 40. Spages believes the Republican Party best fits the biblical model of government."
This is more of the Republican as "God's Party" stuff. The right-left charade while the real deceptions go on. The same party that is now telling the poor, disabled and elderly of American they can go sleep in the gutter even though Social security was supposed to be a self sustaining separate program aside from the rest of the budget, along with their Democratic helpers, who gave billions of dollars bail-outs to Wall Street, and trillions sent over seas, and have brought us TSA and Homeland Security and who are now dismantling the Constitution as we now speak...
Check this out:
WASHINGTON -- Debt ceiling negotiators think they've hit on a solution to address the debt ceiling impasse and the public's unwillingness to let go of benefits such as Medicare and Social Security that have been earned over a lifetime of work: Create a new Congress.
This "Super Congress," composed of members of both chambers and both parties, isn't mentioned anywhere in the Constitution, but would be granted extraordinary new powers.
I guess soon they aren't even going to pretend anymore this is the same country...
Ever notice that no INDEPENDENT thinkers ever make it to the pulpit or in this case a church position of note? I believe there is a reason for that. Poisonous politics meet false religion, and many falsely trained or knowing deceivers themselves, leading the way. Bad leftist politics for the UUs and liberal and mainline churches, and bad religious right politics for the evangelical world.
Church and state married together fooling you.

I don't buy their claim that this kind of weather has happened before. Many elderly people I personally know have told me they never have seen anything like it, with even the heat waves of 1988 and 1995, remaining a distant second. How do you say
that weather like this happened in 30s and 50s, and at the same time, claimed over 1400 heat records were broken? When you see contradictions like this pay attention and also notice what they say about the crops.
It seems every other week the weather is doing something horrible and records are being broken. I believe that weather modification is real. I do not think this is a NATURAL occurence. Notice how the flooding, the tornadoes, etc, have focused on so many food producing areas.
See "What's With All the Tornadoes?"
and this blog entry as well.
Isa 25:4 For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones [is] as a storm [against] the wall.

Watch the video to understand this post, first.
Three men are named in the video: Bill Bright, Loren Cunningham and Frances Schaeffer
All three have had involvement with the National Day of Prayer and with the Lausanne Movement. [see here, here, and here]
Hey why wouldn't these two things [The Lausanne Movement and 7 Mountains] be tied together?
Lausanne is Billy Graham's outfit. I exposed it here: "The Lausanne Movement: Bringing Evangelicals Into the Antichrist Fold".
I found this website called God Conversation, they seem to be secularists and rest who reject "Christianity"probably rightly offended by all the power-mongers doing evil but sadly not knowing true Christianity] but they were RIGHT to connect the 7 mountains to the Lausanne Movement:
Read more at their website, they write out and compare the goals and aims of the Lausanne Movement and match those to the 7 Mountains Initiative.
Briefly summarized (see full text below), the objectives of The Lausanne Movement over the next ten years include:
There would be no wall of separation, as government would be based on absolute "biblical truth" and no pluralism.
The workplace will become an evangelistic mission field.
The media will be saturated with "the biblical worldview."
There will be an increasing Christian message in arts, music, movies, plays and other forms of entertainment.
Science, technology, and healthcare will embrace "biblical truths." Healthcare will embrace "the sanctity of human life;" i.e., no termination of pregnancies and no assisted suicide.
Christians are encouraged to attend or teach at secular universities in order to influence them with "biblical truth." Christ-centered schooling is honored as a form of academic excellence.
Everyday conversation and culture will be filled with the Christian viewpoint, where Christ is the truth of the universe and the center of all human life.
7 mountains of influence eh?
One thing about Satan's workers I've noticed is they do announce what they are doing in front of everyone's eyes. They understand that most are spiritually blinded and will follow anyway unless they are being led by the Holy Spirit. Scripture tells us that 7 mountains of anything denotes evil and the Antichrist kingdom.
Rev 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
Rev 17:9 And here [is] the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

Put the Pope at the top of the pyramid....
I noticed years ago, the other "right" side of the two wicked parties, was whipping up "conservatives" to blame the poor in this country for the deficit and problems with the economy. The left is no better, oppressing the poor via their endless enslavement tactics too. The Tea Party and most of the Republican politicians have jumped on this bandwagon. It works too, to have Americans blindly and obediently watch all the few safety nets removed, it has made Obama's basically threatening the nation's sick, elderly people and disabled veterans with eviction and starvation, "acceptable" and well look how the bankers and multi-national corporations win, when they got the populace turning against one another. It is the whole 'Divide and conquer"...Webwide, one can see endless screaming against all those "welfare deadbeats", lazy good-for nothings" and the rest while the American economy implodes. Traveling around the web to 'conservative" websites, the cries against the poor are growing louder while the real culprits have attention diverted away from them. The now pernamently unemployed are facing terrible discrimination, even being told by companies, that 'We do not employ the unemployed" [ironic huh?] How did that even become acceptable to deny a person who wants to work, the ability to do so? Those in the lower classes in America know by personal experience the nooses are getting tighter.
The real culprits who basically stole 700 billion dollars [actually it's much higher then that] from the rest of us laugh while they run away with the money. The globalist bankers control both sides of the left and right divide. While some wicked people do take advantage of the system, there are many out there, who want everyone to blame the poor [sometimes focusing on certain groups] instead and it's working. The Tea Party is one group that seems now more insistent on playing blame the poor games instead of the foundations of where all our money has gone and how this country has been cleaned out.
This country has been stripped clean of its wealth via wicked bankers who have taken endless bailouts, money printing, and all the money given to multi-national corporations who have no loyalty to the country that helped to form them and sent the jobs all overseas. Americans have been stripped of homes, stripped of jobs, and now being more stripped with the threat to social security. With multitudes of "owned politicians" on both sides of the aisle-left and right support either the endless "Plan for a New American Century" crusade for the Pope wars that have cost trillions of dollars or the rule-heavy regulation insane Big Brother state--[think about how much money TSA costs, even to strip search Americans at air ports, now coming your way to bus stops, malls and stadiums], it works for the global elites to brainwash people to play "Blame the Victims", "Blame the Poor" and it's happened. That is why Obama was able to get away, with basically threatening a great number of American people. See my article here "Obama Threatens Social Security" Do you think 20 years ago a president could basically tell millions of the populace, it may be game over in terms of their survival even for political agendas? By the way much started with Bush as he grew the government guargantuan for "security". On Zero Hedge, I saw one poster write:
"We are going to cut funds to the poorest, the most unhealthy and elderly, but maintain wars which benefit countries on the other side of the planet to save them from evil dictators. Yeah, that makes sense. On Washington's list of priorities (not you GW) Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq are more important than the American people."
As I wrote on this blog entry: they are busy reintegrating the gap nations. I read that had Japan rebelled against the bankers by the way, and I'll let you draw your own conclusions why what has happened to them has.
As they draw the noose tighter and tighter to enslave the American people, it works for the elites to remove all the positive things that made this country great and take it to a third world nation--where the poor and disabled are tossed aside and where people are worked as slaves. One recent thing they are doing is removing all the protections for workers, this has gotten very little media attention, welcome to slave shops in America for those who still have a job. While there have been abuses on the left with corrupt unions, soon there will be nothing holding this country back from being another China.
I believe what is happening to America is planned destruction, with the economy and more. Most people are sleeping out there, and do not want to know. "You are being too negative", they will tell you as they return eyes glazing to watch American Idol. The elites have brainwashed the populace to ignore the facts right in front of their eyes, trusting politicians who only betray them over and over. Churches all signed up with the same political agenda, globalism and endless wars, preaching give money overseas as well, while the number of Americans without jobs rises. Anyone see any Calvary Chapel or SBC preachers talking about the dying American economy or the great clean-out?
One can tell Obama is following the same exact agenda of the Republicans, right and left working together. Infrastructure cut in America, more taken away from the poor, social security decimated--a program the American people paid into from their own paychecks, assuring more poverty in America while more goes overseas. Note the below emphasis on "DOMESTIC SPENDING"... they do not want to touch the great wealth clean out for America. Remember the poor in the third world are not seeing our money either, the elites are getting it. So the wars are not touched and they strip even more from poor American people. More lies from Obama who today said:
"Now, what that would require would be some shared sacrifice and a balanced approach that says we’re going to make significant cuts in domestic spending. And I have already said I am willing to take down domestic spending to the lowest percentage of our overall economy since Dwight Eisenhower."
See how this works for the globalist agenda? They want to continue their globalist programs even as the country is trillion dollars in debt. They have now successfully used fear and blaming the poor, to make this acceptable even though social security was supposed to operate out of it's own accounts--the money taken out of everyone's paychecks, and other budgets are far greater such as the military budget. By the way, Obama keeps sending money overseas, without holding back. He certainly is not asking the bankers and rest to "sacrifice" anything. Even liberals on one well known "progressive" board are asking:
"The thought that we need to continue the wars at the expense of social programs, education, and infrastructure is a far right, neo-con talking point. Something they've been pushing since before George Orwell wrote "1984".
Can someone rationally explain to me why Obama is pushing such a radical far-right anti-Democratic Republican supported agenda? Why is war spending and the pentagon budget "off the table"? It should be a tenth of it's current size."
Too bad they don't quite get left and right work hand in hand and some of the social programs are more about control.
One website, shows an absolutely AMAZING statistic "Too Big To Fail?: 10 Banks Own 77 Percent Of All U.S. Banking Assets"
"It really is difficult for ordinary Americans to get a handle on just how large these financial institutions are. For example, the "big six" U.S. banks (Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo) now possess assets equivalent to approximately 60 percent of America's gross national product.
These huge banks are giant financial vacuum cleaners. Over the past couple of decades we have witnessed a financial consolidation in this country that is absolutely unprecedented."
To make sense of it all, and who Obama serves, even some of the liberals are now admitting his betrayals but it's too late even if a few more have woken up....read this article...
"The Ultimate Goal of the Bankster-led Political-economic Warfare Being Waged Against Us Is . . . ?"
"Indeed, this isn't the "Great Recession", it's the Great Bank Robbery . In simple language, the big banks have pillaged and looted the rest of the world, and now they are beginning to pillage and loot the USA. It is not only Greece that is losing its sovereignty; the big banks are in the process of turning America into a banana republic as well. Remember, the trillions in bailouts went to banks, not to Main Street , and a large percentage of the bailouts went to foreign banks (and see this ). And so did most of the money from the second round of quantitative easing .
In short, warfare initiated by the big banks has now gone global. As Warren Buffet, one of America's most successful capitalists and defenders of capitalism, has pointed out, "There's class warfare, all right, but it's my class, the rich class, that's making that war." And winning it."
Considering the role of Rome in all of this, as they direct this world's economy, is even these pundits are referring to it as 'neo-medievalism' [bringing back the time of the height of Rome's power.]
If all this sounds far fetched, consider that Foreign Policy magazine recently ran an article entitled " The Next Big Thing : Neomedievalism ," arguing that the power of nations is declining, and is being replaced by big banks and other corporations, wealthy individuals, the sovereign wealth funds of monarchs, and city-regions.
Remember when I wrote this article? This is what the Pope wants, the one world government is on the way. The New World Order wants it's serfs, it wants it's wars and it's control:
Isa 59:4 None calleth for justice, nor [any] pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
Isa 59:5 They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.
Isa 59:6 Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works [are] works of iniquity, and the act of violence [is] in their hands.
Isa 59:7 Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts [are] thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction [are] in their paths.
Remember Perry Noble was invited to The Elephant Room discussions with Greg Laurie, Furtick and others. This guy is an obvious deceiver. What amazes me is that anyone of any sense would sit there listening to this man berate people over their music tastes, perhaps some discernment is happening or the older folks are tired of having their eardrums blasted out from "Christian" rock. He insults the members who avoid the music part of the services. The worse is telling them they are not allowed to leave the church service even to go the bathroom claiming "distraction". Visions of control freak EST cult types who used to not let their participants use the bathroom for hours come up to my head. What is scary to me is the laughter when he puts down people using low class language who don't embrace all the church's music. Then he tells parents they can't take their kids to services. Of course many churches do Sunday School during services, but he tells them they are not allowed at all.
One thing with false preachers is they do think very highly of themselves and become control freaks.You see it time and time again, they are so so arrogant and narcissistic. I remember witnessing a control freak pastor in the local fundamentalist church [the only one for miles] and walking out. This man was literally yelling at the people in the pews. If a pastor has no respect or love for fellow Christians, then there is no reason to be there. Oppressive rule freaks, run from them. One blogger writes:
"It ain’t easy being a member these days at NewSpring Church pastored by Perry Noble – the rules, the regulations, the sheep beatings, the curses.
According to Perry Noble, you “officially suck as a human being” if you express to Perry that you are purposely late to church because you like his preaching but don’t care for the music style.
NewSpring members need to be careful that their church doesn’t begin to fall into the category of a cult. Cults often begin by having a very demanding, charismatic leader, they will require conformity with rigid extra-biblical rules, they will devalue outsiders and non-conformists, and they will suppress dissent.
You see all four of these beginning to emerge at NewSpring. Not saying they are a cult, but when the charismatic leader starts telling people that :
- they can’t come back into the auditorium after the sermon starts even if they leave to tend to a child or go to the bathroom;
- that you suck as a human being if you disagree with the pastor over music styles;
- you are not allowed to designate how your donations are spent;
- you must give 10% of your income to the church un-designated or God will curse you;
- parents cannot bring children younger than 12 years of age into the church services;
- you must show up to church on time or you can’t get into the church service;
…then you better begin to get concerned."
I'm concerned about those who sit there and accept this stuff day after day too.

Psalm 37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
Well I have to go rest in the Lord, well that's my plan for this afternoon. Sometimes posting some of the things on here can be difficult because you do see the suffering, the wicked getting over on so many, but a Christian has to remember to balance things out and keep their cool. This is a reminder for myself as well. Sometimes doing this blog, it can be difficult to see how low down and false the churches have become, but God warned us! I am glad I have the privilege of being able to warn people and talk about what is going on and Thank God for that. Thanks to all my readers and I appreciate all of you too who share such great commentary and discussion on the blog entries. Wanted to write that, and since this blog is more then a year old now, wanted to share my appreciation. For fellow bloggers and writers, too, keep up your good work, I massively benefited from the warnings of other Christians even years ago. I also do thank God for what He has shown me and other Christians and I keep praying for His truth along the way.
This world is going to go more nuts, and lately I am realizing the importance of making sure one's prayer life is strong, as many Americans are realizing that hardship [its already happened to so many already] is going to be knocking on their doors. We have to remember this world is not our home, and it is not everything. Sometimes I know reading some of this stuff can be hard, and "upsetting" but always keep in mind our Hope in Jesus Christ. God will give you the peace that passes all understanding in whatever trials come. Strengthen yourself through Him in turning to Him. Even dealing with finding out what I have in writing this blog, I have had to turn to God many times.
Philippians 4:7 "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
Recently, UTT published a commentary called Calvary Chapel and the Boykin Connection. http://www.understandthetimes.org/commentary/c96.shtml
This commentary documents the connection retired General Boykin has with the Pope of Rome and also numerous Calvary Chapels, including Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. He is the author of Never Surrender.
While many took our commentary seriously, contacted us, and thanked us for sharing our research, it is apparent that Calvary Distribution has decided to continue to promote Boykin’s book Never Surrender in spite of this documented information.
Please see the following as evidence:
On the link, UTI put up one copy of the cover. This book seems to have two different cover designs...[I saw both doing an images search]
I saw the other one earlier today...
Click on picture to enlarge...
Notice something? See that the reflections of all three stars makes a PENTAGRAM?
Calvary Chapel in promoting a book like this definitely outs itself as part of the apostate military-industrial complex sold out churches, but then I remembered the endless Calvary Chapel magazine articles that advanced the 'crusades" of the Pope in the Middle East as being something akin to "holy wars".
Notice how militarism and Christianity get mixed into one toxic stew. This week as our govt threatens grandma with no more livelihood, billions still pours overseas for these useless violent wars for Pax Americana that have destroyed millions of lives. One thing that articles would make you think our soldiers operate only as glorified social workers, you see them helping kids out, and hey probably they do on occasion, but remember they are sent there for COMBAT. Do not let the nice pictures muddy your mind.
Here is an example, and another and here too.
I don't blame the soldiers, I'd rather they be led towards God and reading their bibles too, but how can they know any better when the churches and politicians lie to them and send them to sacrifice their lives, for the evil agenda of the new world order? I bet some figure it out with time, the one's who do really repent and are born again and wonder why are we even here? Our military has been exploited to the point, so much of our fighting forces are overseas, which makes Kissinger's comments of some years back about UN troops on US soil even more ominous.
So militarism married to a false "Christianity" shown in full force. That's Calvary Chapel and so many other churches.
"Pope Benedict called today for an interfaith meeting to be held in Assisi this October to mark the 25th anniversary of the World Day of Prayer for Peace that Pope John Paul II held there on Oct. 26, 1986. Speaking hours after a shattering terrorist attack that killed 21 people in a Coptic church in Alexandria, Egypt, the pope said he would focus on discussing with other religious leaders how religion can promote world peace."
Dan 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify [himself] in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
See "Pope Announces New Assisi "Meet of Faiths"
"Rapture real Aftermath: Beheadings, Shootings, Mass Graves"
"Vietnam Massacre of Hmong Christians"
"Prasch routinely travels and meets with members of the Christian body worldwide. A recent trip took him to Vietnam, where a large number of the Hmong tribal peoples of the nation's Central Highlands are Christian.
They are referred to in the West as Montagnards.
They had heard of Camping's prophecy and not having sophisticated methods for evaluating its validity, took it literally, he explained.
The result, for many, was death, Prasch reported in an email to supporters:
After listening to a translation of Camping's prediction 7,000 of these people (known in the West as Montagnards) gathered on a mountain praising God their suffering at the hands of the communist regime was about to end because Jesus was returning that day in May to establish a new kingdom,.
The police and military police slaughtered many of them at gunpoint – beheading two pastors. Others were arrested. I am told by Hmong pastors that so many were shot dead that they were buried in mass graves bulldozed over in an episode that I read about in Britain but did not understand the magnitude of until I got here.
Prasch reported that he spoke to a secret meeting of Hmong pastors to explain to them "false prophets and false teachers."
"Due to a combination of poverty, ignorance and persecution these poor Christians don't understand much so they believed Camping's shortwave broadcast which is how most get their teaching," he said.
Now "their families don't know if their missing loved ones are among the many shot dead, among those arrested and imprisoned, or among those from the 7,000 hiding in the jungle," he said."
How absolutely horrible, we should pray for those people regarding everything that has happened to them.....
I found this whole thing rather odd, even if someone is totally ignorant, and not taught right, wouldn't the Holy Spirit warn at least some of them? Why didn't any of their pastors read to them the verse warning that only the Father knows the time? ...Matt 24:36: "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." Of course I do not know if the scriptures were available to them or their level of literacy, but why didn't they know of that verse and were unable to apply it?
Christians do NOT need sophisticated methods to judge the validity of what false hirelings and preachers preach. God's Word will suffice. If anything these poor people who I feel absolutely horrified for, seemed to make decisions, that were based on listening FIRST to a false preacher [why did they trust him so much in even just coming from America?, talk about a recipe for disaster!]instead of keeping God's Word in their hearts or even having access to it.
Sadly, perhaps whoever they followed never read that scripture to them or knew it themselves. For their pastors to lead them to a mountain top--unbiblical in itself, seems strange too. They may have 'meant' well but been horrible misinformed. And why are they getting most of their teaching from false radio pastors instead of scripture? Even if they do not have Bibles in their language [or they are forbidden or rare] or are illiterate, why wouldn't some pastors read them scripture or preach it to them? Didn't they become Christians in the first place hearing the Word of God?
What "sophisticated methods" are needed beyond God's Word and teaching and leading of the Holy Spirit? The Christians in the time of the Bible were simple people often poor, dependent on having scripture preached to them. They were able to recognize false teachers. I don't want to sound like I am "blaming" these poor people, I am not, they are victims of a horrible oppressive evil government as well, but they have been failed along the line or for some reason lack basic discernment. False prophecy does lead to death and destruction. That is a given time and time again in scripture. The followers of the father of lies, bring a wide path of destruction in their wake, we know Camping has already wrought horrible things here even with misled people in America selling all their possessions now unable to provide for their families and a girl in Russia committing suicide. Judging by the fruits, they are wholly negative.
What is happening to the churches in America, with them falling away, is happening WORLD WIDE. Lausanne and groups like it, have their tentacles all over the place, there are the false giant Pentecostal behemoth churches fooling the likes of Latin American and South Asia. Obviously in Vietnam, the Protestant churches are horribly oppressed.
WASHINGTON, DC, May 2, 2005 (Freedom House) — The government of Vietnam is stepping up its persecution of minority Christians, according to detailed accounts received recently by Freedom House’s Center for Religious FreedomOne interesting thing to study is the Catholic role in Vietnam and behind the war in Vietnam....
I find the whole thing horribly tragic...one sees the damage hirelings like Camping manage to create WORLDWIDE! With Prasch visiting them, I hope he does not introduce more false teachings to them. Why only preach to the pastors about false teachers? Perhaps he had another meeting but all of them should have been warned. Prasch does warn about some false teachers, and teaches some truths and warns about a few deceivers like Rick Warren but there is much to be concerned about especially when false teachings come in which I have talked about regarding Prasch on this blog before. Does anyone know if Prasch has mentioned any of Roger Oakland's recent warnings regarding the Jesuit infiltration into Calvary Chapel? Here is his defense of Chuck Smith from some years ago. Considering that Prasch teaches at many Calvary Chapels and conferences or at least used to, has any word been said?
Writing this blog entry was very difficult, because I do not want to be seen as stomping on people who have already suffered so much, but the message that got me, was at least the implying that these Christians were fooled by a hireling due to their poverty and ignorance, and lack of "sophistication". That is wrong! The most humble Christian with access to God's Word and the teaching of the Holy Spirit can detect a false teacher.
Anyhow for the Vietnamese Christians, my message is they should be directed to God's Word not the celebrity preachers and hirelings spouting lies from the West like Camping. Nothing "sophisticated" is needed, they need to turn to the leading of the Holy Spirit for discernment and study God's Word. This is the message they need to be given.
another apostate mainline church with its obvious templar crown logo and the "666" shown above:
"God no Longer 'Father' for United Church of Christ"
"The left-leaning United Church of Christ now wants to be even more politically correct, and to do so its deliberative body has replaced the reference to “Heavenly Father” with the gender neutral term, “triune God,” in the denomination’s constitution.
“In the process of revamping its decades-old constitution, the Protestant denomination’s General Synod endorsed an eye-catching change: It deleted the term ‘Heavenly Father,’ replacing it with ‘triune God,’” Courier Journal reported Saturday".

We know all false churches and speakers are leading everyone "home to Rome" including the young people. I showed at the Wild Goose festival, they had their resident apostate Catholic religious there, to teach falsehoods. While they use the "Christian" rock bands to lure the young into an emotional state for false experiences they introduce things that lead them down the ecumenical road. Besides Mass, they had a Catholic priest there doing lectures too. At this Lifest "festival", they included Catholic Mass. Notice it is near the culmination, the apostate icing on the cake. Thanks to my reader who sent me this link.
"Green Bay Bishop David Ricken leads Mass as Lifest ends in Oshkosh"
OSHKOSH — Bishop David Ricken always wanted to go to Lifest. But since taking over as head of the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay in 2008, something else always came up.
“So last year I put it on the schedule to be here today,” Ricken said Sunday. “I’ve heard just wonderful things about it, so I’ve got a lot to learn. I just need to be around as many young people as I can. They’re not only the future but the present, so we’ve got to reach out to them and thank them for what they’re doing.”
Ricken led 9 a.m. Mass from the Thrivent Café Stage on the final day of the 13th annual Lifest celebration at Sunnyview Expo Center. Hundreds worshipped as intermittent showers trickled down on the large tent.
“It’s exciting that the bishop is taking time out of his day and out of his Sunday to be here,” Becky Livingstone of Oshkosh said.
Guess who else was part of this festival, that fully showed it's ecumenical with Rome colors?
Protestant devotions, a children’s service and the Catholic Mass each were held separately before joint worship at 11 a.m. on the grandstand featuring Lenz; Greg Laurie, senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, Calif., and head of the international Harvest Crusades; and acclaimed worship leader Lincoln Brewster.
During the five-day event, the diocese held special activities for festival-goers such as handing out free Holy Hotdogs, Blessed Brats and Sacred S’mores, said the Rev. Daniel Schuster, diocese vocation director and a Lifest speaker.
“It was very successful and created a bridge between the different (faith) communities that are here,” he said.
That’s the goal of Lifest, Lenz said.
Well I am glad Bob Lenz comes out and admits what is going on.
There is nothing Christian about the Catholic Mass with it's false Eucharist and false "jesus", an offering to Baal...for Greg Laurie to even be associated with a festival that has full Catholic involvement including a high ranking bishop and Mass says it all!
Sadly all the eager but naive young people at a festival like this do not know how they are being deluded.

I know sometimes I ask weird questions, but has anyone ever wondered about the origin of this flag and why it is in so many churches? I have seen this flag in two Pentecostal, several mainlines including a Lutheran, Anglican, Free Methodist churches, An Assembly of God church and many others, and even my fundamentalist independent baptist church had it standing in the corner. I mean this flag is all over the place!
Some of it's history is a bit dubious....
The "One brotherhood, uniting all mankind" thing is a giant ,well, RED FLAG. It was designed by Charles C. Overton.
The Christian flag is one of the oldest unchanged flags in the world. It was conceived at Brighton Chapel, Coney Island, New York, Sunday, September 26, 1897, and was presented in its present form the following Sunday by its originator. Call it chance, or providence, serendipity, or the plan of God, on that day, the Christian flag was born. The white on the flag represents purity and peace. The blue stands for faithfulness, truth, and sincerity. Red, of course, is the color of sacrifice, in this case calling to mind the blood shed by Christ on Calvary, represented by the cross. The first pledge to the Christian flag was written by Methodist pastor Lynn Harold Hough in 1908. "I pledge allegiance to the Christian Flag and to the Savior for whose kingdom it stands. One brotherhood, uniting all mankind, in service and love."
If all these different churches fly this flag, doesn't that speak of some type of ecumenical unity between them? [Many churches and folks including fundamentalist ones who fly this flag, are definitely ignorant of it's history]
Things get weird when folks are led to pledge to this flag like the American flag, what would God think of people pledging allegiance to a strip of cloth?
THE AFFIRMATION OF LOYALTY TO THE CHRISTIAN FLAG
The Affirmation of Loyalty to the Christian Flag is a sacred commitment. Let the congregation celebrate its loyalty to the Christian flag and the Cross which it bears by extending to it appropriate recognition and honor.
The minister or lay person will proceed as follows, saying:
1. Let us stand facing the Christian Flag.
2. Let us repeat the Affirmation of Loyalty in unison.
"I affirm my loyalty to the Christian Flag and to our savior whose cross it bears, one spiritual fellowship under that cross, uniting us in service and love."
3. Let each person conclude the Affirmation with a slight but positive nod to the Flag. The congregation may now sing one or more verses from a hymn of its choice, such as Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus, or other appropriate selection.
4. Let us now participate in our Christian Fellowship by holding hands in an inclusive chain from person to person and pew to pew during the concluding prayer. The minister or lay person presiding will offer here a brief appropriate prayer, marking the conclusion of this celebration of the Affirmation of Loyalty to the Christian Flag.
Some churches even dedicate songs to this flag...
One interesting verse, "And May It Reign Triumphant O'er Land and Distant Seas" at 2:08 on the video above.
At 2:16, it has the verse "And All the World United"
Of course this flag entices odd pseudo militaristic parades and processions [sorry about the music here, turn down the volume.
Here is another video, it seems some controversy came up in one community about this flag, with non-Christian veterans wanting it taken down from war memorial, this video shows more of the "one brotherhood" and "united world" messages.
Interesting how close in design the Episcopal church flag is...[which basically is the left daughter wing of the Roman Catholic church]
Is my theory that this flag is a Dominionist marker, that helps advance ecumenism and the whole false spirit of "Christian Triumphalism" where they desire to conquer THIS world for "christ" too far fetched? Tell me what you think.
It is interesting how Obama chooses to pick on the disabled and elderly, the vulnerable of society even if it's what some claim is a tactic to bring the Republicans into submission. Both parties are failing us, as I have written many times. He of course did not threaten removing funds from all the rich bankers, corporate welfare, several wars and 170 military bases. He choose to threaten grandma, elderly and sick people instead. By the way vets were included as well.
"Obama Threatens To Withhold Social Security Checks"
Hey maybe they have more bankers like Goldman Sachs and Soros they want to give the money to instead.
"At 50 Unitarian Universalists Examine Mission"
"Welcome to a typical Sunday in the anything-but-typical Unitarian Universalist Association, a liberal religious movement with a proud history of welcoming all seekers of truth — as long as it’s spelled with a lowercase “t.”
Dramatic readings from the biography of 20th-century labor leader John L. Lewis? Sure. An altar crowded with Christian, Buddhist, Islamic and Jewish symbols? Absolutely. God-talk? Umm, well . . .
For 50 years, the UUA has conducted a virtually unprecedented experiment: advancing a religion without doctrine and hoping that welcoming communities and shared political causes, not creeds, will draw people to its pews.
Leaders say its no-religious-questions-asked style positions the UUA to capitalize on liberalizing trends in American religion. But as the UUA turns 50 this year, some members say a “midlife” identity crisis — trying to be all things to everyone — is hampering outreach and hindering growth."
I laughed to see this quip:
"Why is it bad to get the Unitarians mad at you?
They could burn a question mark on your lawn."
Course I find myself thinking what need for the Unitarian Universalist Association when people can go down to the local Emergent evangelical church and get their labyrinths, and Buddhist readings down there?
