“And when the Queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the Lord, she came to prove him with hard questions. And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart. And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not any thing hid from the king, which he told her not. And when the Queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon’s wisdom, and the house that he had built, And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cup bearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the Lord; there was no more spirit in her. And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom. Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard. Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom. Blessed be the Lord thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the Lord loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice. And she gave the king an hundred and twenty talents of gold, and of spices very great store, and precious stones: there came no more such abundance of spices as these which the Queen of Sheba gave to King Solomon. And the navy also of Hiram, that brought gold from Ophir, brought in from Ophir great plenty of almug trees, and precious stones. And the king made of the almug trees pillars for the house of the Lord, and for the king’s house, harps also and psalteries for singers: there came no such almug trees, nor were seen unto this day. And King Solomon gave unto the Queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, beside that which Solomon gave her of his royal bounty. So she turned and went to her own country, she and her servants. Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold, Beside that he had of the merchantmen, and of the traffick of the spice merchants, and of all the kings of Arabia, and of the governors of the country. And King Solomon made two hundred targets of beaten gold: six hundred shekels of gold went to one target. And he made three hundred shields of beaten gold; three pound of gold went to one shield: and the king put them in the house of the forest of Lebanon. Moreover the king made a great throne of ivory, and overlaid it with the best gold. The throne had six steps, and the top of the throne was round behind: and there were stays on either side on the place of the seat, and two lions stood beside the stays. And twelve lions stood there on the one side and on the other upon the six steps: there was not the like made in any kingdom. And all King Solomon’s drinking vessels were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold; none were of silver: it was nothing accounted of in the days of Solomon. For the king had at sea a navy of Tharshish with the navy of Hiram: once in three years came the navy of Tharshish, bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks. So King Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom. And all the earth sought to Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart.”
[I Kings 10:1 – 24]
Didn’t Drs. Kenneth and Mamie Clark’s classic “Doll Study” already prove this to be true regarding black children, particularly in the segregated South? Interestingly, soon after publishing the results of their research “colored schools”, wherein some gifted black students scored HIGHER on standardized tests than white students, simply vanished in the name of Civil Rights and progress. Countless now retired judges, educators, engineers, attorneys, and physicians, etc., can recall how their teachers’ and their fathers’ approbation motivated their academic and professional success during the Jim Crow Era. Ergo, IF 79% – 97% of black boys today NEVER have an erudite black male teacher during their formative years, then is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that the proverbial “pipeline” from our public schools to private prisons has been a hidden agenda of integration all along? Explain. In a nation wherein Satanic Clubs are welcome in our elementary schools is it time for conscientious Christian parents to consider home schooling? Any nation that vacates GOD’s Commandments, by default, will become more ungodly and more evil. WE hold these truths to be self-evident in a nation wherein sodomy, fellatio, and coitus are discussed openly in sex education classes for fifth graders. In this Age of Feminism, to what extent is gender identity also a factor in elementary education and the rites of passage? Ergo, is it time for devout Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, and Jewish parents to abandon the public school system in order to protect vulnerable children from Satan’s GLBT indoctrination? Explain.
Why are Dr. Kenneth Bancroft Clark, Dr. George Isidor Sanchez, Mr. Jaime Alfonso Escalante, and Ms. Marva Delores Collins conspicuously absent from most textbooks and workshops on efficacy in education? Why do innovative teachers and principals often find themselves being disciplined or terminated by the School Board, despite their success? Why haven’t the powers that be replicated Marva Collins’ quintessential curriculum throughout Chicago’s inner-city schools? Why isn’t there an Urban Prep Academy in every major city in America? Why hasn’t the National Education Association [NEA] promoted and promulgated Mr. Escalante’s math curriculum in all public high schools, inconsequential to whether or not they have Hispanic students? What can Black and Hispanic students learn about the desuetude of their intellectual potential from movies such as “Dangerous Minds”, “Stand and Deliver”, “Finding Forrester”, “Lean on Me”, “Mi Familia”, and “Akeela and the Bee”? IF black and brown lives matter, then when will wealthy singers, prize fighters, actors, entrepreneurs, NFL and NBA players, etc. create a $500,000,000 endowment [that is less than Tiger Woods’ divorce settlement] and foundation to provide ACADEMIC scholarships for at risk “boys in da hood”, starting in third grade? With a steady decline in literacy among students of color, why do professional athletes endorse sports camps rather than reading camps for boys and girls during the summer months? Is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that most youth agencies and other “non-profit” institutions have an invisible “Master” mandating that only an exiguous number of minority children ever leave the “Poverty Plantation” to attain intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and pecuniary parity with mainstream America? Explain. Concomitantly, will successful, well-educated Black men ever “man up” to mentor just one convicted felon, mano-a-mano, for as many years as it takes until he earns his GED and bachelor’s degree? Stated differently, rather than to give him a “FI$H” when he is hungry, teach him how to fish and to feed his entire family. Gentlemen, what impact could such a paradigm shift have upon “black on black” homicide, self-hatred, and how we treat each other? Instead of marching past our nation’s Capitol, when will a million men march to their local colleges, churches, mosques, and libraries to create weekly “Think Tanks” committed to facing and fixing our credit history, medical history, criminal history, educational history, and ethical history? Hypothetically, IF the score at half-time during the Super Bowl is 47 to 6, then should the losing Head Coach complain to the officials or admonish his defense to stop their opponent’s quarterback and running back? Truthfully, can we become better men, husbands, fathers, coaches, brothers, and role models, lest we do so? Within our Village, is the modus operandi of our Duboisian “Talented Tenth” self-aggrandizement or altruism? Thus, when will talented minority students manumit themselves en masse from a modern day slave mentality or the perception that articulate, AP honor students are “acting white”? At the grass roots level, when will fathers and other mentors take Junior to the Smithsonian or to the Schomburg Library vis-a-vis to a sporting event? Can they compete intellectually IF black boys handle a basketball far more skillfully than they handle a book? Can any young man protect and provide for his family IF his wife has two masters degrees while he reads at a seventh or eighth grade level? For men who earn substantially less income than their wives, is it possible, plausible, or probable, or preposterous to think that the Psychological Penis Complex might precipitate their “trading places” — both in the boardroom and in the bedroom? Explain. WE can’t fix it IF we can’t face it, inconsequential to whatever “it” is. So, brothers, “What is we gonna do?”
First, I must apologize for the foul language in that last video clip. Yet, one of the most important LIFE LESSONS any of us can learn is how to think with our intelligence rather than with our emotions. For example, IF one thinks that virtually all people in any identity group, i.e., Asians, Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Jews, Muslims, Christians, etc., are good or evil, then Big Brother’s social engineers have accomplished their mission. Antithetically, IF one reads or conducts research to discover the FACTS on any issue, then the results of such critical thinking will show how television, movies, magazines, books, sermons, lectures, blogs, and even Uncle Sam, etc., work in tandem to control our minds and to elicit myriad programmed behaviors. These Pavlovian responses can be either self-affirming or self-destructive. For example, some educators forbid their children to watch television or to play video games on school nights in order to ameliorate their academic performance. Beyond selling drugs or other crimes inveterately associated with minority communities, three legal, yet, self-destructive illustrations of this principle at work are: (1) teen pregnancy, (2) sagging pants showing posterior cleavage, and (3) coveting the pipe dream of NFL or NBA fortune and fame. In the political arena, these “programmed” behaviors include our citizenry’s insouciant response to: (1) CIA sponsored “terrorism”, (2) torture, (3) racism, (4) US military global hegemony, and (5) US domestic policies adversely impacting the poor. Despite today’s unprecedented number of erudite African Americans matriculating and graduating from Harvard Law School and other Ivy League institutions, has anything substantial changed in score years regarding the empowerment or well-being of the poor? Explain. Hypothetically, whenever the “Talented Tenth” graduate from a HBCU or a State University, does such a coterie of professionals lead our Village across the Sahara’s burning sand to the Promised Land…or back to the Nile Plantation to resume building Pharaoh’s pyramids and worshiping his gods? In the sagacious words of Florida’s own James Weldon Johnson, “God of our weary years, God of our silent tears, Thou who hast brought us thus far on our way. Thou, who hast by Thy might led us into the light. Keep us forever in the path we pray. Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee. Lest our hearts, drunk with the wine of the world we forget Thee…” Eureka! No man can serve two masters, for he will love one and hate the other. Therefore, whenever he rings the bell, to which master do we gleefully come running with our tails wagging? In the context of a “funeral” for an individual or an entire identity group, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think WE the People have become an Orwellian society of proles — without even realizing it? Thus, ignorance is bliss…or is it? Explain.
Any nation that vacates GOD’s commandments, by default, will become more ungodly and more evil. WE hold these truths to be self-evident in a nation wherein “In God We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed. Yet, IF you have not read the entire Holy Bible at least seven times, then you may be spiritually blind, relative to other Christians who have done so. Unlike many devout Middle Eastern Jews and Muslims who have committed the Torah and the Koran to memory, why are countless Christians here in the United States Biblically illiterate? For example, when questioned regarding what GOD’s Word says about abortion, child molestation, adultery, feminism, lesbianism, female pastors, fornication, homosexuality, masturbation, incest, bestiality, etc., many Christians will proffer erroneous opinions or misinterpretations of the Bible without having have read it. Thus, in this Age of a Great Falling Away, countless ministries across our nation are both popular and apostate. Yet, akin to Little Red Riding Hood, many church folks are too blind to see the wolf in sheep’s clothing standing in their pulpit. As geo-political events draw us all closer to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, let us Christians keep our vessels prepared and refrain from becoming like unto the five foolish virgins. As the Bible admonishes mankind, study to show thyself approved a workman unto God who needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Did not Jesus, Himself, also warn mammon that many would be fooled in the Last Days by “false prophets” and “false christs”? In a nation wherein the GLBT agenda aggressively supplants Biblical standards for marriage and morality, did former Pres. Obama fully describe to the American people the correlation between homosexuality and pederasty or sodomy and AIDS? Explain. Inconsequential to whether you consider yourself or someone you love to be heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual, participation in VICE’s ministry of sexual healing promises to be more transparent and more thorough than the sermons of your pastor or priest…assuming that they delve into the subject. Yet, IF members of the clergy are seminary graduates, then how does one explain the blatant acquiescence to heresy within many churches? Explain. Is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that spiritual wickedness sits in high places in both the Catholic and the Protestant Church? Explain. Ergo, rather than proselytizing, Victory In Christ Ensemble is a unique expose of politics, religion, and sexuality committed to challenging Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and even agnostic members of our book club to study the Scriptures and to READ enlightening books. Decide for yourself whether or not the Carpenter’s Son with hair like wool, indeed, is the Messiah who came to save mankind from our sins. Obviously, both wheat and tares will grow up together until Judgment Day. Therefore, let each of us get right with God or get ready to burn in the lake…and I don’t mean Lake Titicaca. Stated differently, Hell will be sufficiently hot for everyone who has earned their right to spend eternity therein. Ergo, now is the time for real Christians to put on the whole armor of GOD in order to resist the Devil and his army of sentinels and enemy agents. Ever since the Garden of Eden, it has been their agenda, by any means necessary, to steal, to kill, and to destroy Morpheus, Neo, Trinity, and the chosen few who have unplugged from the Matrix. Since no man can serve two masters…will you swallow the red pill or the blue pill? Explain.
And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when He was come out of the ship, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped Him, And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. For He said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And He asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, my name is Legion: for we are many. And he besought him much that He would not send them away out of the country. Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. And all the devils besought Him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea. And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done. And they come to Jesus, and see Him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid. And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine. And they began to pray Him to depart out of their coasts.
[Mark 5:1 – 17]
“And there appeared a great wonder in Heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in Heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of Heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. And there was war in Heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in Heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye Heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
[Revelation 12:1 – 17]
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them. Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged. Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as men pleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God; And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
[Colossians 3:1 – 25]
Any nation that vacates GOD’s commandments, by default, will become more ungodly and more evil. WE hold these truths to be self-evident in a nation that inculcates, “Do whatever you want behind closed doors. It’s nobody’s business!” Therefore, in the context of libido versus lust, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that high school and college students no longer use the Bible or another moral compass to circumscribe their sexual expression? Are the erotic images on the Internet sending the wrong message to our vulnerable children and grandchildren about gender and sex? Explain. Unlike the 1960’s, when sexually explicit movies and magazines such as Penthouse were vilified as “pornography” that should be hidden in a closet, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that they could be utilized today by mature parents to teach mature teenagers [especially males] about sexual boundaries? IF you are incredulous, then please be advised that some public elementary schools already are using explicit images of coitus, sodomy, and fellatio, etc., in sex education class. Rather than a dogmatic priest or pastor shaming them or judging them for masturbation, is it possible that many fatherless teenagers need to be, first and foremost, validated by sagacious Elders as they explain the Moral Menu and the consequences of “forbidden fruit”? Explain. IF you have read the entire Bible at least seven times, then unlike adultery, fornication, and homosexuality, where in GOD’s quintessential “textbook in sex education” is masturbation condemned as a sin? Obviously, many Christians cite MATTHEW 5:27 – 28 wherein Jesus said if a man looks upon a woman to lust after her, then he has committed adultery in his heart. However, zealous Pharisees invariably fail to concede that the next two verses are inextricable from exegesis of this passage wherein Jesus instructed horny men to “CAST IT FROM THEE” in order to avoid lusting or going to Hell. Fellows, is God’s Son telling your 10 year old son or your 20 year old nephew to pluck out his own eye in the men’s locker room — literally? Explain. As I’d admonish the members of VICE who attend any of our workshops, “By all means, don’t believe me because I could be in error. Ever too often, Christians possess a form of godliness, but not according to knowledge. Therefore, let us reason together from the Bible to test the veracity of whether or not any “so called” apostle, evangelist, prophet, preacher, or teacher is adding to or taking away from the Word of God…fair enough?” IF, de facto, masturbation is not a sin according to God, then why does the Church utilize flawed theology as a means of mind control and manipulation of the masses? Explain. For nearly two thousand years, have Ecclesiastical authorities in the Roman Catholic Church taught the masses that masturbation causes blindness and hair to grow in the palm of your hand? Concomitantly, have hypocritical Ecclesiastical authorities in both the Catholic and Protestant hierarchy incessantly engaged in sodomy, pederasty, adultery, fornication, murder, and even drinking the blood of children sacrificed to pagan gods? Explain. Therefore, IF the Scriptures admonish us to study to show thyself approved a workman unto God that needeth not be ashamed, RIGHTLY dividing the Word of Truth, then why do those of us born with “a banana and two grapes” hide in shame, like Adam, behind fig leaves? Brothers, IF you continue trying to outrun your “Sexual Shadow”, then you never will apprehend God’s forgiveness, which is a sine qua non for holistic male bonding with your father, your brother, or your son. Stated differently, brethren, as the paternal head of the home and the Church, we have a responsibility unto God to walk circumspectly regarding the knowledge of good and evil. Historically, IF 79% – 97% of all men in college, the military, prison, professional contact sports, entertainment, or a fraternal organization have “messed around” with another male, then is “homosexual” a noun or more accurately an adjective that describes sexual behavior vis-a-vis sexual orientation? Explain. IF a handsome young man spends two decades behind bars, then how can he later get married and have children IF he was “born gay”? IF a sissie was bullied, molested, and raped repeatedly by a cousin, a convicted felon who lived two blocks away, or even a close friend of the family long before he turned eighteen, then was he “born gay”? What about a lesbian with a similarly traumatized sexual history? Explain. Albeit “bisexual” far more accurately describes male sexual orientation [i.e., Lawrence Olivier, Malcolm X, Emile Griffith, Marlon Brando, Yusaf Mack, Elvis Presley, and several US Presidents, etc.] than “heterosexual”, is this one of the occult “secrets” millions of Americans have sworn never to discuss? Ergo, do we ever use women we don’t truly love as “fig leaves” and procreate irresponsibly in order to prove our manhood? Anthropologists concur that, centuries ago, bisexuality was a rite of passage in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Moreover, gentlemen, IF we carefully examine the lives of men such as Samson, David, le Marquis de Sade, Aleister Crowley, Albert Pike, Jack the Ripper, Bill Cosby, or even Pastor Bob Coy, etc., then it becomes clear that none of them woke up one day and capriciously decided to score a touchdown for Hell’s Head Coach. Au contraire, mon frere! Yet, few Senior Pastors or Youth Pastors dare to teach adolescent males in their congregations about the “Devil’s Penis” and how demonic spirits can influence male concupiscence unawares, both before and after fatherhood or marriage. Ergo, rather than being silent prudes, shouldn’t Christian parents provide their progeny with transparent and age-appropriate discussions about the virtues and vices of sexual morality? While it is true that we mortals have free will, the Scriptures well illustrate how spiritual beings often motivate our actions — be they good or evil. One reason why the porn industry and the Kabbalah glorify sodomy is the “third eye” becomes a portal for demons in both men and women engaged in Satanic sex magic. In a nation wherein public schools now welcome SATANIC CLUBS and already are teaching kindergarten students about fellatio, coitus, and sodomy, etc., conscientious Buddhist, Christian, Muslim and Jewish parents can not afford a “conspiracy of silence”. Hypothetically, to what extent is the lack of sexual information culpable for the “sexual mistakes” that have befallen millions of teenagers each and every year since the Sexual Revolution began? Explain. As our government normalizes sex change operations, gay marriage, lesbianism, promiscuity, pedophilia, pederasty and bestiality, does Satan’s perennial game of “Trick or Treat” still deceive mammon equally as well as it tricked Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden? Is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that Satan is rolling on the floor laughing at the fools we have become in the Last Days? Feminists, can any of these libertine forms of sexual expression be attributed to fatherlessness, physical abuse, emotional abuse, incest, rape, or other sexual abuse suffered during childhood? Explain. In a nation wherein Satan’s loyal army of soldiers, teachers, psychologists, preachers, priests, physicians, politicians, police, prison guards, juvenile probation officers, and parents alike sacrifice countless children to Moloch or Baphomet, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that the majority of America’s Youths ultimately will worship Lucifer rather than the Lord, Jesus Christ? Explain. In this hedonistic Age of a Great Falling Away, let the “chosen few” who love the Lord put on the whole armour of God and remain steadfast, unmovable, and always abounding in the Word, the Work, and the Will of God…even as it pertains to sexual expression.
“Then went Samson to Gaza, and saw there an harlot, and went in unto her. And it was told the Gazites, saying, Samson is come hither. And they compassed him in, and laid wait for him all night in the gate of the city, and were quiet all the night, saying, In the morning, when it is day, we shall kill him. And Samson lay till midnight, and arose at midnight, and took the doors of the gate of the city, and the two posts, and went away with them, bar and all, and put them upon his shoulders, and carried them up to the top of an hill that is before Hebron. And it came to pass afterward, that he loved a woman in the valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah. And the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and said unto her, Entice him, and see wherein his great strength lieth, and by what means we may prevail against him, that we may bind him to afflict him; and we will give thee every one of us eleven hundred pieces of silver. And Delilah said to Samson, Tell me, I pray thee, wherein thy great strength lieth, and wherewith thou mightest be bound to afflict thee. And Samson said unto her, If they bind me with seven green withs that were never dried, then shall I be weak, and be as another man. Then the lords of the Philistines brought up to her seven green withs which had not been dried, and she bound him with them. Now there were men lying in wait, abiding with her in the chamber. And she said unto him, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he brake the withs, as a thread of tow is broken when it toucheth the fire. So his strength was not known. And Delilah said unto Samson, Behold, thou hast mocked me, and told me lies: now tell me, I pray thee, wherewith thou mightest be bound. And he said unto her, If they bind me fast with new ropes that never were occupied, then shall I be weak, and be as another man. Delilah therefore took new ropes, and bound him therewith, and said unto him, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And there were liers in wait abiding in the chamber. And he brake them from off his arms like a thread. And Delilah said unto Samson, Hitherto thou hast mocked me, and told me lies: tell me wherewith thou mightest be bound. And he said unto her, If thou weavest the seven locks of my head with the web. And she fastened it with the pin, and said unto him, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awaked out of his sleep, and went away with the pin of the beam, and with the web. And she said unto him, How canst thou say, I love thee, when thine heart is not with me? thou hast mocked me these three times, and hast not told me wherein thy great strength lieth. And it came to pass, when she pressed him daily with her words, and urged him, so that his soul was vexed unto death; That he told her all his heart, and said unto her, There hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my mother’s womb: if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man. And when Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying, Come up this once, for he hath shewed me all his heart. Then the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and brought money in their hand. And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him. And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the Lord was departed from him. But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house. Howbeit the hair of his head began to grow again after he was shaven. Then the lords of the Philistines gathered them together for to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon their god, and to rejoice: for they said, Our god hath delivered Samson our enemy into our hand. And when the people saw him, they praised their god: for they said, Our god hath delivered into our hands our enemy, and the destroyer of our country, which slew many of us. And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said, Call for Samson, that he may make us sport. And they called for Samson out of the prison house; and he made them sport: and they set him between the pillars. And Samson said unto the lad that held him by the hand, Suffer me that I may feel the pillars whereupon the house standeth, that I may lean upon them. Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and there were upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport. And Samson called unto the Lord, and said, O Lord God, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes. And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left. And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life. Then his brethren and all the house of his father came down, and took him, and brought him up, and buried him between Zorah and Eshtaol in the burying place of Manoah his father. And he judged Israel twenty years.”
[Judges 16:1 – 31]
So, Dr. Cretella, are you saying that GOD didn’t make a mistake in the delivery room? Obviously, any nation that vacates God’s commandments, by default, will become more ungodly and more evil. WE hold these truths to be self-evident in a nation wherein the Obama Era’s GLBT Agenda blocks, tackles, clips and runs Christianity out of bounds. As it was in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, WE the People of the United States now take pride in sexual perversion and so-called “gay marriage”. Therefore, Satan is rolling on the floor laughing at the fools we Americans have become in the Last Days. Is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that Lucifer appears as an “angel of light” unto gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans-gendered men and women who willingly plug into his matrix of strong delusion? Explain. Concomitantly, the anti-Christs in Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Israel, et al., fail to see how Satan’s ubiquitous game of “Trick or Treat” separates mammon from God. Nonetheless, the “treat” always is pleasant to the eye while the “trick” is that it separates you from God. Assuredly, Hell will be sufficiently hot for everyone who has earned their right to spend eternity therein. Rest assured, just as the resplendently luxurious TITANIC sank in the Atlantic Ocean, the “unsinkable” United States soon will sink in Her sins…and the band played on. Yet, Jesus Christ, the MESSIAH, is admonishing GLBT psychologists, preachers, politicians, plutocrats and all other sinners, “Don’t go down with the Ship!”
“There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in HELL he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame! But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, Father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” [St. Luke 1:19 – 31]
When I was a precocious child, my family lived in a working-class white neighborhood. With the exception of a black school teacher directly across the street and another black school teacher next door, all of the other families in that neighborhood were white. Ergo, despite occasional KKK motorcades parading past our houses on South Street, we played doctor, hide-and-seek, kick ball, softball, and football, etc., with our white neighbors. Albeit I now refuse to watch television, in the 1960’s I enjoyed watching Bill Cosby and Diahann Carol much more than the exaggerated, negative images of black people portrayed in Tarzan movies. Half a century later, President Barack Obama bragged about having assassinated Libya’s “Dictator Muammar Gaddafi”, who (1) provided free health care for everyone, (2) provided $50,000 to assist newly weds in buying a home, (3) provided free electricity to his entire citizenry, (4) raised Libya’s literacy rate from approximately 20% to over 80%, (5) provided free education for everyone, (6) made it illegal to charge interest on loans, and (7) created the highest standard of living on the entire African continent. Speaking only for myself, I have far more respect for the accomplishments of Libya’s former “dictator”, as Western media has portrayed him, than I do for the black man who occupied the White House for eight years. Is not this, yet, another exaggerated, negative image of Africa? Obviously, the former used Libya’s mineral wealth to ameliorate the quality of life for everyone. Antithetically, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that the politicians and plutocrats who run the United States incessantly transfer Africa’s tremendous wealth to the capstone of a Euro-centric pyramid? Explain.
Because congenital asthma truncated my physical stamina, I developed a passion for reading books during my formative years. Yet, my older brother got to play outdoors “until the light pole came on”. Thanks to Mom and Dad having been educators, I enjoyed competing academically rather than in sports. As a constituent of the last generation of “colored” students who matriculated in the South’s segregated “colored” schools, my point of reference regarding racism always has been incongruent with the propaganda pontificated by both Black America and White America. Why? Obtuse individuals in both identity groups fallaciously will blame the stimulus for their conditioned response to it. For example, as the only Negro in my high school marching band, I played “Dixie” at our football games. Countless times, I was threatened by radical black students who resented that Confederate anthem. Yet, akin to Jackie Robinson and the Freedom Riders during the Civil Rights Era, I already had been prepared for such untoward events. Ergo, I am not disconcerted by white people or black people who display a Confederate flag, pay homage to slavery, or regale in honor of their heroes from the Civil War. Why? To the chagrin of the Orwellian Thought Police, erudite critical thinkers realize that no hooded robe, statue, historical document, movie, talisman, pejoratve, emotional trigger, or flag can cause anyone to hate his fellow man. Nonetheless, WE the People of the United States can not extirpate racism, lest we better understand the raison d’être for the Trail of Tears, the surreptitious Tuskegee Syphilis Experiments, the CIA’s Project MK Ultra, AFRICOM, and Big Brother’s convoluted mind-control agenda. IF one man prefers sneakers or sandals, while another prefers penny loafers or boots, then Plato’s thinking man should recognize how each of these choices can protect one’s feet from hot pavement. Plato’s unscientific man, however, erroneously pontificates that his choice in footwear should be mandated for all pedestrians. Via extrapolation, can divergent opinions about race, religion, sexuality, communism, capitalism, and pulchritude, etc., coexist without totalitarianism or calumny? Explain. Is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that lies and propaganda exploit irrational fears, ignorance, and insecurities within those individuals who need “an enemy” to fight? Explain. I dare to say that illiterate or unlearned men and women of ANY race tend to swallow the telescreen’s bait and the angler’s hook posthaste. Thus, rather than to ferret for the truth, WE the People of the United States prefer to live in 3-D: namely, delusion, duplicity, and dishonesty regarding ethics and morality. Yet, with the desegregation of Southern schools, black and white students alike discovered that Negroes were not genetically or intellectually inferior to their white compeers. Concomitantly, I discovered that many of my “colored” teachers presented a greater cognitive depth of understanding than white teachers in the subjects they taught. This may be attributable to racism having circumvented many well-qualified Negroes’ admission to medical school or law school in the 1960’s. Prior to the SCOTUS ruling on Brown v Topeka Board of Education, many colored students scored HIGHER on standardized exams than their white counterparts in the “better” schools, despite the disparity in the allocation of pecuniary resources. Perhaps, this vignette illustrates DuBois’ understanding that the Talented Tenth must include educators, in addition to other professionals. Thus, unlike today, it is important to reiterate that I was sheltered from racism via quintessential “colored teachers” having demanded intellectual excellence from bright “colored students”. In retrospect, IF ever it became common knowledge that many “colored students”, indeed, were more intelligent than many white students, then could the artifice of “White Supremacy” have exploded and motivated Negroes in the South to fulfill Martin Luther King’s dream? Or would the powers that be proffer them sports, entertainment, alcohol, welfare, fatherless families, drugs, AIDS, illiteracy, unemployment, disenfranchisement, guns, and police brutality, etc., in order to maintain Apartheid in America?
Whenever African American parents request rather than require that boys handle their books more skillfully than they handle a ball, statistically, what percentage of them emerge as doctors or lawyers such as Stefan Humphries and Paul Robeson? Why do our kindred from Haiti, Jamaica, Nigeria, et al., DEMAND that their sons and daughters become successful in the Land of Opportunity? What law circumvents actors, prize fighters, singers, or NBA and NFL celebrities from establishing a $500,000,000 endowment and charitable foundation committed to providing ACADEMIC scholarships, starting in 3rd grade, exclusively for “boyz in da hood“? Explain. Feminists, how could such a paradigm shift circumvent the desuetude of black male intellectualism, thereby mitigating the illiteracy and the poverty on our side of the tracks? WE can’t fix it IF we can’t face it. Ergo, do black lives truly matter to black people or have we merely acculturated to playing the race card whenever the advisors to the king instruct us to do so? Explain. Hypothetically, is it now possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to hold White people accountable for what Black people are doing to themselves to perpetuate intellectual, emotional, spiritual, and economic inferiority? As the Congo’s sagacious Patrice Lumumba admonished, are WE also “co-authors of our misfortunes”? Explain. Whereas this coin called “Racism” has two sides, I have yet to see a million Africans in America march or otherwise protest black on black homicide, domestic violence, incest, rape, bastard children, tattoos, sagging pants, stealing, smoking, drinking, drugging, dropping out of high school and filling up privatized prisons. IF black lives matter, then I yearn to see a think tank or coterie of one hundred Caribbean, African American, and African intellectuals protest or debate the long-term consequences of Pres. Obama’s unilateral imposition of so-called GLBT “human rights” upon the US and third world countries throughout the Diaspora. With the exception of homicide, what could be a more efficacious weapon of mass destruction of the black man’s capacity to procreate, to protect, and to provide for his family? One has to look no farther than Atlanta, Georgia to see that sodomy and AIDS are deleterious not only to African American men, but also to countless wives and children. Yet, some members of the Congressional Black Caucus equate opposition to GLBT rights to the erstwhile denial of Civil Rights for “colored people”. In other words, we decry racism blocking our efforts to draw water from the “Well of Success“. Yet, at the same time, we punch holes in the bottoms of our own buckets. What’s wrong with that picture of racism? Is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that African American principals, professors, college presidents, physicians, preachers, prelates, and political “leaders” throughout our Village have been programmed or paid — if not both — to encourage our progeny to cross the Sahara’s burning sand, return to the Nile Plantation, and resume building Pharaoh’s pyramids and worshiping his gods? Explain. Stated differently, WE have done a terrible job of telling the truth concerning racism vis-a-vis self-hatred. Obviously, WE can’t fix it IF we can’t face it…and the Black KKK is counting upon us to do neither.
You and I need not to visit a circus in order to see magicians at work. In the context of American politics, religion, and sexuality, for example, white rabbits seem to be the plat du jour ad infinitum. Yet, our citizenry’s conditioned response to media propaganda becomes quite predictable as we go along to get along with the New World Order. The Holy Bible declares, “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” Yet, what is truth according to the Orwellian Thought Police or the Hegelian Dialectic? In the context of eschatology, Jordan Maxwell asserts that both Uncle Sam and Big Brother incessantly occlude and obfuscate the truth so that our citizenry will remain obtuse, unaware, and spiritually blind. Is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that America’s insouciance can be attributed [in part] to our watching 40 – 60 sporting events rather than reading 40 – 60 books each year? Explain. Stated differently, “Seek and ye shall find; seek not and find not.” Any nation that vacates GOD’s commandments, by default, will become more ungodly and more evil. For Jews, is the Talmud, the Kabbalah, or the Torah God’s Word? Explain. We hold these truths to be self-evident as the Prince of Darkness utilizes his monolithic control of media to block, tackle, clip and run enlightening truths out of bounds. IF your son’s first grade teacher proclaimed, “The kat klimbed the tree while karefully karrying her kitten,” then would you nominate him or her for Teacher of the Year or teach Junior how to use the dictionary. Yet, IF the State banned dictionaries and imprisoned anyone who spelled cat with a “c” vis-a-vis with a “k”, then would you acquiesce? Hypothetically, is this fictional vignette becoming a reality in what the Bible describes as the Last Days? For those who dare to unplug from this Matrix of the Occult, we must ferret for the truth in order to bend the spoon. Of course, enemy agents and sentinels will be dispatched to quickly “vaporize” truth seekers. Nevertheless, they shall inherit Eternal Life if they endure until the Second Coming of the Messiah. However, for those agnostics and atheists who don’t necessarily embrace the Scriptures, Star Wars movies and The Pinky Show’s quintessential “Globalization and the Metaphysics of Control” video shed secular light upon current geo-political events. As Edward Snowden well stated, “Big Brother is watching you.” Yet, a salient query for all of us in the Last Days is, “Are you watching him?”
And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
BUT HE THAT SHALL ENDURE UNTO THE END, THE SAME SHALL BE SAVED. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. HEAVEN AND EARTH SHALL PASS AWAY, BUT MY WORDS SHALL NOT PASS AWAY.
[MATTHEW 24:1 – 35]
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it. And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die. But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee. And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive. And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
[Genesis 6:1 – 22]
“So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” [Revelation 3:16]
By this shall all men know that ye are my Disciples, if ye have love one for another. Obviously, there is only a remnant of such righteous men in the United States today, who routinely workout in God’s Gym. Why? Rather than to love our neighbors, our citizenry is so avaricious that men and women alike covet and love the thirty pieces of silver Satan promises those heretics, heathens, hypocrites, and Hellions who serve and obey him. Any nation that vacates GOD’s commandments, by default, will become more ungodly and more evil. WE hold these truths to be self-evident in a nation wherein “In God We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed. For example, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that the ordination of women as PASTORS was the antecedent to a deluge of GLBT “christians” coming out of the closet? According to the Bible, are women equally as qualified as men to serve as pastors, elders, and bishops? Stated differently, are bicycles equal to motorcycles or are they “weaker vessels” of transportation? Similarly, Feminism assiduously blocks, tackles, clips, and runs the brotherly love inveterately associated with devout Christianity out of bounds — without any shoulder pads or helmets. Ergo, is “Feminism” tantamount to the quintessence of a psychological penis complex? Explain. In retrospect, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that America’s Youths who attended our nation’s public schools in 1984 also were “morally naked” during their formative years? As these young men and women became teachers, librarians, attorneys, judges, prison guards, police, probation officers and pastors, etc., did they embrace the mores of the Lord Jesus or Lucifer’s spiritual darkness? IF you have read the entire Bible at least seven times, then you have been manumitted from spiritual blindness in the context of discerning cogent Biblical truths. Similarly, IF your son’s first grade teacher proclaimed, “The kat klimbed the tree while karefully karrying her kitten,” then would you nominate him or her for Teacher of the Year or teach Junior how to use a dictionary? As the 2017 academic year begins, should devout pastors and parents start home schools and church schools posthaste…or send our progeny to be indoctrinated by proles inculcating GLBT heresy? Explain. In what the Bible describes as the Age of a Great Falling Away, “Counterfeit Christianity” manifests itself in a myriad of ways, i.e., fornication, adultery, pederasty, bisexual or lesbian pastors, homosexual priests and preachers, transgender baptism, and gay “marriages”, etc., defiling everything that it touches in God’s house. IF godly men are to be the head rather than the tail, then will church elders, deacons and stewards grab their jock straps of courage vis-a-vis cowardice and castration when confronting Goliath? Explain. In the Last Days, as apostate politicians and pastors alike embrace the Luciferian modus operandi of moral nihilism, the Body of Christ must steadfastly remain committed to obeying God rather than mammon. After all, the Scriptures remind us that no man can serve two Masters; for he will love only one and hate the other. Concomitantly, IF we love God we will keep His commandments. Ergo, why not turn off your secular music and your television for 90 days in order to peruse the entire Holy Bible by Christmas? In so doing, you will be able to save a forest of evergreens and give Him a gift that money can’t buy.
Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body. Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle. For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp. Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come. By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you. Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly. But I beseech you the rather to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner. Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
[Hebrews 13:1 – 21]
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity. I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
[1 Timothy 2:1 – 15]
O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain. He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, THERE IS NEITHER MALE NOR FEMALE: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
[Galatians 3:1 – 28]
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. And unto Adam he said, because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I COMMANDED thee, saying thou shalt not eat of it, cursed is the ground for thy sake…
[Genesis 3:1 -17]
And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night. And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat. But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door. And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it. And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law. And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city. And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the Lord being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city. And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord: Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die: Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live. And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken. Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar. The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar. Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
[Genesis 19:1 – 26]
For countless Christians, this title refers to a familiar episode in the Bible [St. John 8] wherein a woman was “caught in the act” of adultery. Although VICE is an enlightening exposé of politics, religion, and sexuality, my primary focus in this post is forgiveness. For example, why did a coterie of self-righteous Scribes and Pharisees allow the man to put on his robe and sandals and subsequently escape accountability for his actions? Moreover, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that they were in the “red light district” also looking for a trick or a treat? According to Judaic law, were not both guilty parties to have been taken outside the city’s gate and then stoned to death? Thus, IF 79% – 97% of zealous Christians, Jews, and Muslims who vilify others’ “sexual mistakes” do so to project their shame upon others, then are they devout or delusional? Stated differently, rather than the proverbial empty wagon, is it possible that the guilty wagon makes the loudest noise? Explain. When men such as Martin Luther King, Jr., President Clinton, Bill Cosby, President Kennedy, Kobe Bryant, Pastor Bob Coy, Willie Gary, or Pastor Tullian Tchividjian [Billy Graham’s grandson] commit adultery, what spin or spotlight should we put on their “sexual mistakes”? Despite our futile attempts to hide behind fig leaves, probity requires that we concede that there are A’s and F’s on our moral report cards too. Therefore, we can’t cast the first stone…capish?
Any nation that vacates GOD’s commandments, by default, will become more ungodly and more evil. WE hold these truths to be self-evident in nation that has more people behind bars than in any other nation on Earth. Having privatized many prisons, mass incarceration has become one of the most profitable industries in the United States. The “Prison Culture” is a milieu wherein drugs, contraband, and sexual assault are experienced by both juvenile and adult prisoners. Countless citizens, especially men of color, have been falsely convicted via blatant corruption by policemen, prosecutors, and even the courts. In a nation wherein “In God We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, what’s wrong with that picture of jurisprudence? Having served their sentences, convicted felons find it extremely difficult to secure meaningful employment. Typically, Human Resource managers discount the possibility of rehabilitation once that box is checked on any job application. Ergo, VICE’s “Not Guilty Program” challenges men and women to consider becoming self-employed in a number of industries available to them. Several success stories from former felons are presented in this blog. Akin to selling vacuum cleaners, cosmetics, or vitamins, etc., VICE’s business model bypasses the middle man [i.e., Amazon] in order for Independent Agents to maximize their earning potential. Ergo, anyone who studies this unorthodox textbook and believes in its “ministry of sexual healing” can earn $390.00 gross profit per order of ten books sold. However, because I believe they deserve a second chance in life, an additional $200.00 rebate is available to both convicted felons and former foster children — despite what they may have done in the past. Stated differently, “He who has no sin, cast the first stone.”
“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.”
[I Timothy 6:10 – 12]
White, black, rich, poor, male, or female, etc., with no respect of person, into each life some “rain” must fall. Yet, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that 75% of the rain or problems we face throughout life are a direct consequence of our disobedience to God’s Commandments? IF Satan deceived Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, then might the Prince of Darkness still devour mammon via his perennial game of Trick or Treat? Remember, the treat always is “pleasant to the eye” while the trick is that it separates you from God, resulting in eternity in Hell. Perhaps, IF we were spiritually enlightened, then we could see Lucifer’s hidden agenda. For example, IF the entire Bible consisted of just ten words: “Thou shalt not place thy hand on a hot stove,” then why would millions of Americans still do so, lest they were spiritually blind? Moreover, why do college professors, politicians, pastors, parents, and public servants block, tackle, clip and run anyone out of bounds who dares to admonish America’s Youths against these vices? Despite the persona and public image of being “pleasant to the eye”, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think the American idols we call celebrities have taken an oath and consequently have soul ties to Satan? WE can’t fix it IF we can’t face it, inconsequential to whatever “it” is. Hypothetically, IF there is a spiritual motive, a sexual motive, or both for virtually everything we do, then is our sexual expression prima facie evidence of which “god” we serve? Explain.
