The Left’s Stealth Religious War: Church of Liberalism vs. Christianity

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 4, 2016

socialist-brain

Much of my wife Mary’s and my time is spent traveling the country, helping to elect conservatives to the House and Senate. I am chairman of the Conservative Campaign Committee.

On a rare stop back home in Florida, we decided to enjoy a day at our favorite, New Smyrna Beach. After multiple stops for gas, banking, and Walmart, we were finally on our way. It brought back fond childhood memories of hot summer family trips to the beach; mom, dad, fat Aunt Nee, and five kids all crammed into a station wagon with no air conditioning. The ritual included picking up Aunt Nee from her house and several stops for select foods to take with us. I remember the excitement I felt after all the stops and we were finally headed to Carr’s Beach, the only Maryland beach open to blacks.

Back to present day. Before we left home, Mary said, “Don’t forget a book to read.” Scanning our bookshelves, Ann Coulter’s book published in 2006, Godless, caught my eye.

In her book, Coulter said, “If a Martian landed in America and set out to determine the nation’s official state religion, he would have to conclude it is Liberalism, while Christianity and Judaism are prohibited by law.” Coulter said liberalism is the state-sanctioned religion and is a godless one. Ten years later, liberalism has become the state-mandated religion. Remarkably, practicing Christianity hasbecome illegal.

Coulter says that despite liberals claims of being non-religious, liberalism has all the attributes of a religion. Coulter exposes the “Church of Liberalism,” in which “its sacraments (abortion), its holy writ (Roe v. Wade) … its clergy (public school teachers), its churches (government schools, where prayer is prohibited but condoms are free) … its cosmology (in which mankind is an inconsequential accident).”

I would include the LGBT agenda as a sacrament of the Church of Liberalism.

Seemingly overnight in America, our freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and parental rights have been taken away. Obama’s DOJ says it will prosecute anyone who speaks badly about Islam. Christians are being persecuted and even jailed for not obeying sacraments of the Church of Liberalism. Federal judges have decreed that parents are not allowed to opt out even their preschool childrenfrom LGBT indoctrination in school curricula.

Just like the Hitler Youth, the Obama administration has indoctrinated students to become Church of Liberalism spies. Students are instructed to report family members who make racist and politically incorrect comments around the dinner table.

My dad and Mary’s mom taught us that the Democrats were for the little guy, the working man. Our parents are clueless regarding how far to the left their party has moved, becoming a godless cult – home of the Church of Liberalism.

The Church of Liberalism’s control of our government will dramatically increase if liberal zealot Hillary Clinton becomes president. Americans have been beaten down, forced to embrace the sacraments of this religious cult. A perfect example is ESPN awarding the Arthur Ashe Award to Bruce Jenner, a man in drag.

C’mon, folks: you can imagine what most of the men in that hall at the awards event were thinking. For the most part, pro sports is a celebration of maleness. And yet those high-testosterone pro-athletes knew they had better smile and applaud Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner or be forced into sensitivity training and risk losing their livelihood.

Typical of religious cults, the Church of Liberalism does not tolerate opposing points of view. Church of Liberalism zealots used the federal government to silence the Tea Party. The Church of Liberalism seeks to punish and silence Fox News. The Church of Liberalism brands all opposition, “hate speech” enabling them to use government to silence Christian pastors and close down Christian churches.

Decades of the Church of Liberalism controlling public education has reaped masses of dumbed down Americans, brainwashed into embracing the Church of Liberalism’s tyranny. Dummies believe that Church of Liberalism zealots are good guys, advocates for the disenfranchised, defending them against mean, selfish, and racist Christians and Conservatives.

For example, Obama routinely trashes and rules against Christianity while forcing Christians to submit to the sacraments of the Church of Liberalism. Obama displays his utmost respect for Islam. And yet Obama’s administration has made it quite clear that speaking badly about Islam or any of the sacraments of the Church of Liberalism could land you in jail.

Think about this, folks. Church of Liberalism zealots are free to outrageously blame Christians and law-abiding American gun owners for a massacre they had nothing to do with. We have suffered numerous incidents of Islamic terrorists attacks, killing Americans on U.S. soil. And yet, our federal government threatens to jail anyone caught speaking badly about either of these two religions (Church of Liberalism and Islam).

Christians are being banned from many jobs and jailed for not submitting to sacraments of the Church of Liberalism.

Folks, the America we knew is gone. Prayer, repentance, and a regime change should be our first baby steps toward restoring our nation. This is one of the many reasons why my battle cry is “Never Hillary!”

Never Take a Christian Leftist to the Zoo

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 11, 2015

Brain_SocialistLiberal

It’s the uncontested opinion of a very small circle of my friends that we will never take a Christian leftist to the zoo. Aside from the fact that Christians have had a historical tendency to be thrown to the lions, there have been a few cases in which Christians have thrown themselves into the lion’s den. But this grisly reason aside, the reason we never take a Christian leftist to the zoo is purely selfish. It’s because he’s more likely to throw you to the lions, and then praise the Lord for making him better than everyone else.

This latent brand of leftism most usually makes an appearance when you’ve got to make a serious decision about your country’s survival. Then all of a sudden the un-neighborly neighbor begins spouting all kinds of scandalous things on Facebook about how God has not given us a spirit of fear and pretending to risk his life in reckless causes with minimal payouts at maximum expense. And there’s almost always a catch. The reason God hasn’t given him a spirit of fear because He’s given you one. And He has given you one because you are the person who’s actually being endangered.

For instance, you can find a liberal Christian worrying about the people in prison – but not about the people they harmed to get there. You can find him clamoring to spend more on the poor – but not with the money that’s taken from him (it’s most usually stolen from children). He frequently tells us not to judge – but only the things and people he personally feels comfortable around. He always wants to house illegal immigrants and hostile refugees – but never in his own home. He wants us to get rid of our weapons because of the children, and wants us to get rid of our children because of the mothers, and he claims that he who loses his life shall find it. We applaud him in the last measure – we give him liberty to lose his life. We want him to pack up and evangelize to ISIS. We do not give him liberty to lose ours or anyone else’s.

The liberal Christian is pitiable because he lives a life full of contradictions. His own morality isn’t even really moral, because it isn’t even really possible. He says, on the one hand, that the mark of the Christian is a wild and irrational charity, which means letting go of everything you ought to hold dear and grabbing on to everything you shouldn’t. On the other hand, he feels the need to lock his front door. He says that dying for Christ is admirable and then wonders whether living is moral. And he wonders this because once he’s decided that he’s responsible for the people he isn’t responsible for, every Christmas tree is purchased at the expense of an African’s meal and every hour of leisure spent at the expense of a soup kitchen. He gives so he can make the world a better place. When a part of the world is a better place, he quickly tries to make it worse. The moment he feels he’s helped you on your feet is the moment he will try to knock you off them.

The strange appeal of Christian altruism comes from the fact that it isn’t really altruism. Not only because there isn’t any such thing as altruism (which everyone with any sense already knows), but because Christians believe there isn’t anything to lose. In a certain sense they believe they have everything, which is why they appear to be ready to lose everything. The difference between liberal Christians and intelligent Christians isn’t that one has Heaven and the other one doesn’t. It’s that one of them knows the difference between giving everything and taking everything.

There’s a reason why “altruism” is so appealing, and it’s because the person who gives things gives without asking. It’s the same reason we avoid people who take without giving. At its core, we love altruistic people because we love being around people who benefit people (because we are people); and we love committing acts of altruism because we want other people to love us as much as we love ourselves. The people who say altruism is unselfish are ignorant of their interests, which means they’re also ignorant of yours. Altruism is an indulgence of our instinctual pity and an expression of our sociability. In Christianity, as in the rest of life, it is God’s means of glorifying Himself (Heb 12:2). All respectful acts of self-interest are moral, which is why Jesus spent the overwhelming majority of his life as a working man. An act of altruism is an attempt at endearment and a monument to self-worship.

The great beauty of the Christian religion is found not anywhere in Christian morality, but in the one thing liberal Christians are worse at than anything else – which is biblical theology. It lies in the fact that if there really is a God out there who knows you at your worst and gave you His very best, then everything we could suffer on Earth is only for a moment, and everything really great about life is going to last forever. It’s why Christians sing the sappiest love songs ever written. Christians love their God because He first loved them at His own expense. And herein lies something crucial. Had Jesus never been a member of the Trinity, the Gospel would have been a very different story – which is why Christians have been willing to kill each other over the doctrine. An intelligent Christian is a moral Trinitarian, and wants to give himself. A liberal Christian is morally Arian and wants to give someone else. And the someone else he wants to give is you.

What Christian leftists have forgotten is that altruism is a beautiful thing until it becomes mandatory – which is when it becomes murderous. And the moment we cross the line between giving without a reward and forcing others to give without a reward, we have left the realm of altruism entirely. There is a very specific name for the kind of people who view the lives, liberty, and property of their neighbors as nothing more than a means to a personal end – even if it is a “spiritual” end. We call them robbers, murderers, and tyrants. The liberal Christian robs and endangers Christians to enrich the world’s barbarians and losers, and he does it to glorify himself at minimal personal expense. The Apostle Paul said a man who refuses to take care of his family is worse than an infidel. It has yet to be heard what he’d say of a man who robs the body of Christ.

The West – Nations Commit Suicide

Russian Orthodox Patriarch: Eurovision Is ‘Repulsive’

The “hotbed of sodomy” Eurovision Song Contest final has again been blasted by the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC), after the Primate called the international music event “repulsive”

So strong was Russian revulsion at the outcome of last year’s Eurovision, it was suggested a new competition should be launched to replace the decadence of the present incarnation, named the ‘Voice of Eurasia’. At the time, a spokesman for the Church said: “The last Eurovision contest’s results exhausted our patience.”

We must leave this competition. We cannot tolerate this endless madness.

The process of the legalization of that to which the Bible refers to as nothing less than an abomination is already long not news in the contemporary world.

Unfortunately, the legal and cultural spheres are moving in a parallel direction, to which the results of this competition bear witness”.

A Russian conservative politician said of the competiton last year: “Conchita Wurst’s Eurovision victory symbolizes the complete collapse of the European Union’s moral values… There’s no limit to our outrage. It’s the end of Europe. It has turned wild. They don’t have men and women any more. They have ‘it’”, reports the Christian Post.

The Patriarch may have been cheered by news from the United Kingdom after last year’s Eurovision, that despite the country giving full points to Austria’s gender-bending entry, all was not as it seemed. As Breitbart London reported, in the public vote, Poland’s sexually charged Slavic Girls entry won, but a small panel of BBC judges overruled the text-in vote and gave the points to Austria instead.

Crazy Love: 18 Traits of The LUKWARM

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 26, 2013

Because when you’re wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

LLHIn his book, Crazy Love, Francis Chan made a list of 18 traits of the lukewarm Western church / churchgoers

LUKEWARM PEOPLE attend church fairly regularly.  It is what is expected of them, what they believe “good Christians” do, so they go. (Isa. 29:13)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE give money to charity and to the church…as long as it doesn’t impinge on their standard of living.  If they have a little extra and it is easy and safe to give, they do so.  (1 Chron. 21:24; Luke 21:1-4)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE tend to choose what is popular over what is right when they are in conflict.  They desire to fit in both at church and outside of church; they care more about what people think of their actions than what God thinks of their hearts and lives. (Luke 6:26; Rev. 3:1; Matt. 23:5-7)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE don’t really want to be saved from their sin; they want only to be saved from the penalty of their sin.  They don’t genuinely hate sin and aren’t truly sorry for it; they’re merely sorry because God is going to punish them.  LUKEWARM PEOPLE don’t really believe that this new life Jesus offers is better than the old sinful one. (John 10:10; Rom. 6:1-2)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE are moved by stories about people who do radical things for Christ, yet they do not act.  They assume such action is for “extreme” Christians, not average ones.  LUKEWARM PEOPLE call “radical” what Jesus expected of all His followers. (James 1:22; 4:17; Matt. 21:28-31)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE rarely share their faith with their neighbors, coworkers, or friends.  They do not want to be rejected, nor do they want to make people uncomfortable by talking about private issues like religion. (Matt. 10:32-33)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE gauge their morality or “goodness” by comparing themselves to the secular world.  They feel satisfied that while they aren’t as hard-core for Jesus as so-and-so, they are nowhere as horrible as the guy down the street. (Luke 18:11-12)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE say they love Jesus, and He is, indeed, a part of their lives.  But only a part.  They give Him a section of their time, their money, and their thoughts, but He isn’t allowed to control their lives. (Luke 9:57-62)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE love God, but they do not love Him with all their heart, soul, and strength.  They would be quick to assure you that they try to love God that much, but that sort of total devotion isn’t really possible for the average person; it’s only for pastors and missionaries and radicals. (Matt. 22:37-38)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE love other but do not seek to love others as much as they love themselves.  Their love of others is typically focused on those who love them in return, like family, friends, and other people they know and connect with.  There is little love left over for those who cannot love them back, much less for those who intentionally slight them, whose kids are better athletes than theirs, or with whom conversations are awkward or uncomfortable.  Their love is highly conditional and very selective, and generally comes with strings attached. (Matt. 5:43-47; Luke 14:12-14)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE will serve God and other, but there are limits to how far they will go or how much time, money, and energy they are willing to give.  (Luke 18:21-25)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE think about life on earth much more often than eternity in heaven.  Daily life is mostly focused on today’s to-do list, this week’s schedule, and next month’s vacation.  Rarely, if ever, do they intently consider the life to come.  Regarding this, C.S. Lewis wrote, “If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next.  It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this.”  (Phil. 3:18-20; Col. 3:2)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE are thankful for their luxuries and comforts, and rarely consider trying to give as much as possible to the poor.  They are quick to point out, “Jesus never said money is the root of all evil, only that the love of money is.”  Untold numbers of LUKEWARM PEOPLE feel “called” to minister to the rich; very few feel “called” to minister to the poor.  (Matt. 25:34, 40; Isa. 58:6-7)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE do whatever is necessary to keep themselves from feeling too guilty.  They want to do the bare minimum, to be “good enough” without it requiring too much of them. (1 Chron. 29:14; Matt. 13:44-46)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE are continually concerned with playing it safe; they are slaves to the god of control.  This focus on safe living keeps them from sacrificing and risking for God.  (1 Tim. 6:17-18; Matt. 10:28)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE feel secure because they attend church, made a profession of faith at age twelve, were baptized, come from a Christian family, vote Republican, or live in America.  Just as the prophets in the Old Testament warned Israel that they were not safe just because they lived in the land of Israel, so we are not safe just because we wear the label Christian or because some people persist in calling us a “Christian nation.”  (Matt. 7:21; Amos 6:1)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE do not live by faith; their lives are structured so they never have to.  They don’t have to trust God if something unexpected happens—they have their savings account.  They don’t need God to help them—they have their retirement plan in place. They don’t genuinely seek out what life God would have them live—they have life figured and mapped out.  They don’t depend on God on a daily basis—their refrigerators are full and, for the most part, they are in good health.  The truth is, their lives wouldn’t look much different if they suddenly stopped believing in God. (Luke 12:16-21; Hebrews 11)

LUKEWARM PEOPLE probably drink and swear less than average, but besides that, they really aren’t very different from your typical unbeliever.  They equate their partially sanitized lives with holiness, but they couldn’t be more wrong.  (Matt. 23:25-28)

I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot.  Would that you were either cold or hot!  So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor,  blind, and naked.” [Revelation 3: 15-17]

በራድ ወይም ትኩስ እንዳይደለህ ሥራህን አውቃለሁ። በራድ ወይም ትኩስ ብትሆንስ መልካም በሆነ ነበር። እንዲሁ ለብ ስላልህ በራድም ወይም ትኩስ ስላልሆንህ ከአፌ ልተፋህ ነው። ሀብታም ነኝና ባለጠጋ ሆኜአለሁ አንድም ስንኳ አያስፈልገኝም የምትል ስለ ሆንህ፥ ጐስቋላና ምስኪንም ድሀም ዕውርም የተራቆትህም መሆንህን ስለማታውቅ፥ [ራዕይ፡3: 15-17]
