Left Behind in Louisiana



This is a documentary made about evangelical culture on the gulf coast. Some of these can be interesting from a cultural standpoint but obviously this reminds me of the film "Jesus Camp" where it is more a cultural expose' and Christians are shown as "those wacky uneducated people". Yes the teachers in Jesus Camp were false.  I have seen some who dress as Jesus and who roll crosses around, that is tampering a bit with the second commandment though some surely are well-intended in their attempts to get lost people's attention. There are many false teachings contained within "AMERICAN RAPTURE CULTURE".  It is good some brave souls are going to one of our most demonic cities, New Orleans to witness.

dear Galatians four what holidays do you celebrate.

Not very many.

I expose Christmas, Halloween and Easter as false holidays on this blog.

I'm from Louisiana, and you are right, New Orleans is extremely wicked. They just celebrated Mardi Gras, and then had ash Wednesday and Lent to pay for the debauchery. I grew up going to the ' parades', my aunt would bring us to every single one of them. I saw my uncle almost get beat to death over a bead. I saw women exposing themselves, and men dressed in drag. The floats themselves are in reverence to false gods. On fat Tuesday we would venture down Bourbon street, and the crowds were packed like sardines. My cousins and I would get groped all over while we pushed through the crowds at age 10. It is a vile place of voodoo and murder, and every sick twisted sexual perversion. And if you venture down the wrong street, your likely to get robbed, or worse murdered. I can remember the street preachers holding the signs, and I must admit that some were just as scary as the heathens on the street. But some seemed really sincere, and thinking back, I know they were there to try and save souls. Many would get mocked, or completely ignored. Some were harrassed.
It is a harsh environment there. I will be in prayer for those who go to see souls saved.

Dear Galatians 4 you don't celebrate Easter and Christmas but do you still celebrate Thanksgiving

Bible Believer said...

Yes I still celebrate Thanksgiving. If you want to write against it on these comments go ahead, I have read those against it for the "state religion" elements but I use the day to thank God, [one should every day]. My household is too humble for lavish giant family meals you see on Norman Rockwell paintings. I also cook turkey, stuffing and squash on other days [especially in fall and winter].

New Orleans horrifies me Faith, I have never been there but you can see enough in magazines and media. My husband had a show on called "Nightwatch", I think it was, and I watched a bit of it. It looked a city from the gates of hell, extreme crime, violence, boozing it up, debauchery and the EMTs were sent out on this show to scrape them all up from the pavement. Of course I know about the religious stuff too, the false mardis gras, ash Wednesday, Voodoo mixed with false Catholicism, Lent and more.
It is too bad you grew up among those horrible things, I am glad you survived all that. I have read that things are worsening there even though Katrina lowered the population. Seeing the city turn into zombie acopalypse land was seen by the whole nation in 2005 on TV. I am glad some sincere folks were trying to save souls. God will call people to witness even in the worse snakepits and New Orleans is one of them. I will pray to God for protection of street preachers in New Orleans and some good fruit. I will pray for them too. Lord protect them as they witness to lost souls!

I had two street preachers preached to me in the metro cesspool I lived in. One was one guy with signs down by the court houses in the middle of the city, the other passing out tracts for years at the bus-stops.

Growing up, my liberal friends idolized events like Mardi Gras and Burning Man. That CERN/interpretive dance thing looks just like the sort of "creative" project they would have been commended for in college. I always felt like a loser for not being much into such things. The Lord protected me and I am so grateful he made me a "misfit" among my peers. Now that I am saved, I can see them for what they really are.

When I was UU,everyone went to Burning Man,I could not afford it and glad I never went as well as to other "pagan ceremonies". I even refused to go to a local event named after the solstice, but that was after being Christian.I never fit in anywhere either. Always considered a "misfit" which can be a blessing in this lockstep world. Many follow the group on what they think and do because they think they "are supposed to".

I pray for those street preacher's. Having done that in pershing sqaure in down town L.A. it can be very tough witnessing in an area that has a lot of demonic activity. Did that for years then was led to stop and just concentrate in my own neighborhood. The Rich need the gospel just as much as the downtrodden. Truth be told not much outward fruit I saw in Pershing Sqaure just a lot of lost people that were very stiff necked. You would think with their situation in life being poor that there would be some humility but not always so. There was something more sinister at work, a demonic influence in that area.
