Do We Seek Martyrdom?

See the source image

The Bible makes it plain that when Our Lord Jesus Christ comes again, it won’t be for another crucifixion. The sacrifice was made once, and only once: it will not be repeated. When He comes again, it will be to judge the quick and the dead, and to establish His Kingdom on the earth. He will straighten out this mess.

But I need the Lord’s guidance on another point that’s not so clear.

I’m hearing talk, these days, of great persecutions coming, persecutions of the Church, and how we’d better be ready, we’re going to have to pay with our lives for our devotion to Christ–or at least go into slavery or second-class citizenship. And so on.

So we’re supposed to stand down, do nothing, while the ungodly, who hate the Lord, devour our civilization? Just let them do it? Anything they want?

There was such a chapter in Christian history, and a long and bloody one at that. Are we expected to repeat it? Allow ourselves to be trodden down by transgenders, atheists, “gay” activists, black racists, the crime syndicate of Washington D.C.?

The Bible tells us to overcome evil with good. How do we do that?

Do we wait for Christ’s return, for Him to sort it out, knowing it might be yet another two thousand years? Or do we say, “Enough, we’ve had it, we’re taking back our country”? Is it God’s will for those who hate Him and hate His people to rule over His world?

I really can’t think so. We have done a lot of things wrong in history, calling ourselves God’s people but acting more like Satan’s. But I think it would be doing wrong to fail to oppose the aggressors. Too Pharisaical by half. Like walking past a couple of goons beating an innocent person to death, and making like you never saw it. That’s not Christianity. That’s just cowardice.

What do we do, Lord? What do we do?


First Grab a Barf Bag…

I have to go to the nursing home this morning–but first, here is what passes for a Christmas tree topper among liberals: Hillary Clinton as an angel.

Crikey, it looks like a decoration for a lesbian “wedding” cake.

I don’t have time, just now, to say much more about it. Only that it’s yours for a mere $80 (aaaghhh!), and it does show you what constitutes worship for leftids. Hey, let’s hear it for the chief of the Clinton White House Bimbo Eruption Team! And her (ugh) “iconic white suit.”


For How Much Longer Will America Be Free?

Tomorrow the U.S. Supreme Court will begin hearing a case whose outcome could abolish religious and artistic freedom in America: Masterpiece Cakeshop Ltd. vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission (http://www.syracuse.com/opinion/index.ssf/2017/12/cake_wars_supreme_court_to_hear_case_on_artistic_expression_civil_rights.html).

In 2012 the state of Colorado crushed a Christian baker who refused to obey a demand that he create a custom cake for a “wedding” between two men. He claimed religious and artistic freedom. His custom cakes are works of art, each one unique; and no one ever questioned his policy of not creating cakes with alcohol content or cakes celebrating Halloween. There were, of course, countless other bakers who would have agreed to make the cake: but Big Sodomy and Big Government were determined to make an example of this baker. Scare all the others, don’t you know.

There are four flaming liberals on the Court who might as well not even hear the arguments: they will always vote against religious liberty. Then there’s Justice Anthony Kennedy, who once again finds himself acting as the most powerful man in America, a virtual dictator. Kennedy has a history of being head over heels in love with “gay rights,” so I think we know what he’s going to do. And presto, that’s five votes, and that’s the end of any meaningful application of the First Amendment.

Armed with this precedent, the “gays” can wage war on Christians in any field of public expression, be it art or politics. They will claim the right and the authority, backed up by the government, to dictate the content of works of art.

As a novelist, this makes me fear for my future. All it’ll take is one gay activist demanding that I include gay characters in my books: I refuse, and next thing I know, some (LOL) “civil rights” agency rules that I can’t write any more books, sentences me to sensitivity training, and threatens me with prison.

Think it can’t happen? Well, it already has, in Britain: an artist punished for not including content in his art that the government decided ought to be included. Seems the characters in his story lines weren’t “diverse” enough. His stories about rural English villages were too English. So first they “investigated” him–’cause, hey, y’know, he just might’ve committed a crime!–and then they kicked him off the TV show that he created and made an international hit: Midsomer Murders.(https://leeduigon.com/2016/11/02/and-then-they-came-for-our-fiction/)

I will be astonished if the Supreme Court doesn’t pounce on this opportunity to destroy religious freedom in America once and for all–to establish as a matter of law the principle that the only rights that count are “gay” rights: all others are to be subordinated.


‘Is England Anti-Christian?’ (2014)

Not just England, of course–all of Western civilization needs to be included in this question.

And God help us, when we see what they turn to in Christ’s place…

Is ‘You Need Jesus’ Hate Speech?

Image result for images of kent state hate speech poster you need jesus

Lemme outta here! I just want to get back to work on my book.

But first a little something from yet another of America’s wonderful institutions of higher learning, Kent State.

On a poster created and circulated by the university’s Center for Student Involvement, a promotion for some kind of campus event on the subject of “hate speech”–translation: any deviation, no matter how small, from neo-Marxist liberal booshwa–we find the saying “You Need Jesus” lumped in with “Build a Wall,” “No More Gays,” and “Women Need to Serve Their Man,” all of them as examples of hate speech. (https://www.thecollegefix.com/post/38242/)

When Kent State honchos were questioned about this by The College Fix, it turns out “nobody knows nothin’.”

Are there any Christian parents sending their sons or daughters to this castle of crapola? If you’re out there, reading this, may I ask “Why?”

Our colleges are toxic to our country.

Shut them down.

 


Now They Vandalize Churches

Looking to find some middle ground with the “gay marriage” crowd? You might as well search for the Fountain of Youth.

This is Waverly Baptist Church in Wheelers Hill, Australia, vandalized in the night by advocates of “love is love,” etc. I don’t think the message is just an idle thought.

This is, when you get down to business, a religious war. Are we to worship God and obey His word–or worship an idol we have created with our own hands, and be ruled by it? For “gay rights” and all the rest of it is an idol, man-made, a cover for sinful man exalting himself as righteous god.

In a couple of weeks we’ll see whether the voters of Australia can summon up enough decency to preserve marriage in the form in which God ordained it, or will allow themselves to be bullied and hornswoggled into giving it up.

If it was America, of course, pseudomarriage would be soundly voted down by the people and then imposed on them by a couple of judges.


UK Christianity: Is It Over?

Image result for images of boarded-up church

Would you believe only 15 percent of the people in England identify as members of the Church of England?

That more than half the people in the United Kingdom say they have “no religion” at all? And in the 18-25 age group, that figures balloons up to 71%.

Well, that’s what a national poll says (http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-41150792). In fact, when they started taking it in 1983, the “no religion” group was only 31%–already too large for comfort.

Hey, but not to worry! As a replacement for Christianity, a lot of Britons have joined “secular assemblies” that “celebrate life.” And probably don’t get on your case for having an abortion. As one young woman said, when she comes to one of those important junctures in her life, ” I turn to my friends” instead of God. What a depressing thought.

Britain, cradle of saints: Patrick, Gildas, Kentigern, Ninnian, David, Oswald, and so many more. What happened to your Christianity?

A lot of people worked very, very hard to make it go away. In government, in what they are pleased to call “education,” and in what is even more sardonically tagged as “entertainment.” Worked night and day, every night and every day, for years. While the Church of England fatzed around with–well, I don’t know what.

I am an American. Great Britain is my mother country, and I grieve for it. What the Kaiser and Hitler couldn’t do to her people, their own popular culture has.

I would say “Rest in peace,” but I very much doubt that Britain’s rest will be peaceful.


Why Do Leftids Claim to be Christians?

Image result for images of fake christianity

Okay–here’s a public figure who publicly supports abortion, publicly says the Bible is dead wrong in calling homosexuality a sin, continually sides with atheists in their efforts to drive Christianity out of public life, insists “it’s against the law” to exercise one’s Christian beliefs except in strictest privacy, sympathizes passionately with Islam, and wants the government to “investigate Climate Change Denial.” Of course this person is a Democrat. But he or she also claims, loudly and often, to be a Christian.

“Watchman” asked a good question the other day. Why do so many leftists claim to be Christian, when their actions say otherwise? Why do Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, and all the rest of ’em all claim to be Christians–when their religion is obviously secular humanism? Why do they do it? What do they get out of it?

I think the answer consists of several parts.

First, these are politicians, and the vast majority of voters in America are at least nominally Christian. I dare anybody to run for office as an atheist. He might get elected in some of the bluest of the Blue States, but nowhere else. What could be easier than to say “I’m a Christian?” It doesn’t have to be true.

Second, the church in our time has been extensively corrupted by the secular world. There are whole denominations matching the description of the fake Christian politician in our opening paragraph. You can practically perform human sacrifices to the Devil, and there will be a flatline Protestant or crazed liberal Catholic church that’ll be glad to have you.

Third, never underestimate the power of ignorance. There are a lot of “Christians” who have never read the Bible, never heard sound preaching, never received sound teaching, whose entire so-called understanding of the faith comes from movies, TV, celebrities, and plastic-banana big shots with their megachurches. The “seeker-friendly church” is the blind leading the blind.

[W]hen the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?  —Luke 18:8

Depends on where you look, O Lord. It depends on where you look.


‘Idolizing the Bible’?

Image result for images of same-sex marriage in church

But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Matthew 15:9)

I was advised by one of my liberal friends this weekend that “Idolizing the Bible only leads to fundamentalism.” He has a horror of fundamentalism: it gets in the way of his love affairs with Darwinism and Big Government. Happily, he reminds me, “we have the Church” (he means his church) to give us teachings that supplement or even replace the Bible.

As you can see by the Bible quote above–oops, there I go again!–Jesus has already addressed this issue.

Imagine what harm it would do to the church, and to the whole Christian community, if we were to cut ourselves loose from the Bible and just rely on the teachings and opinions of sinful, mortal men. Oh, wait, we don’t have to imagine it! In fact, we’ve got a picture of it.

This is how we get a church featuring goddess worship, feminist theology, same-sex parodies of marriage, and general assembly delegates poncing around in animal costumes… among other things.

I once interviewed a high official of the Methodist Church, who came right out and said, “The first thing I learned in seminary was that the Bible is not the word of God!” He was proud of having cut himself loose from the Bible. More fool him.

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. (Psalm 2:1-4)

There will come a time when the Lord stops laughing.

And that will not be a fun time for this world.


They Came for This Pastor’s Sermons

Image result for david and goliath

A Georgia pastor is suing the state for religious discrimination, after he was fired from his government position when other creatures in the government reviewed his sermons and discovered the pastor agreed with God’s word that homosexual acting-out is a sin ( http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2016/10/26/state-georgia-demands-pastor-turn-over-sermons.html ).

Since he’s sued them, now the state wants all his sermons and all his sermon notes, going back to when he was 18 years old. Having learned from his earlier experience, the pastor has refused to comply.

Dr. Eric Walsh, a 7th Day Adventist pastor, was hired as a district health director by the Georgia Dept. of Public Health. When the hiring committee asked for copies of his sermons, the pastor complied: obviously a mistake, because two days after the committee reviewed them, they fired him.

The current government “request” for all his sermons is tantamount to a subpoena, Fox News has reported.

No law has been enacted, declaring that adherence to Biblical views on sexual morality disqualifies you, forever, from holding any kind of public service post. Nevertheless, complaints by organized sodomy have the force of law, these days.

Those who believe we can just keep on letting liberals run the country, until someday the righteous candidate comes along, whom we can vote for with a clear conscience, please consider the news report above.

I don’t see any virtue in handing over the country to the ungodly and the wicked. To our great shame, we have already done so, to a degree–but not yet to the last degree. Nor do I see any virtue in courting persecution by empowering Christ’s enemies, when we still have the ability, albeit fading fast, to deny them supreme power in the land, and ownership of all our public institutions.

As I see it, God entrusted us with a country that He has singularly blessed; and rather than be good stewards of it, we have permitted it to be stolen out of our hands.

Is there any doubt that the power establishment in America is out to disable Christians in America once and for all? Toward no other religion do they show such animosity.

When David first saw Goliath, he said, “[W]ho is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” (I Samuel 17:26)

Isn’t it about time we stopped knuckling under to the Philistines?
