ARE CHRISTIANS IN THE MILITARY PERSECUTED?
Any nation that vacates GOD’s commandments, by default, will become more ungodly and more evil. Thus, in a nation wherein “In God We Trust” is a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, do many politicians, professors, and preachers alike block, tackle, clip, and run GOD’s righteousness out of bounds? Explain. As DARPA provides the US military with more weapons of mass destruction, is Uncle Sam persecuting Christian soldiers who dare to speak out against the GLBT agenda and US war crimes in the Middle East? Explain. Whereas ungodliness has an efferent impact upon society, Victory In Christ Ensemble [VICE] admonishes real Christians to study the entire Bible every year for seven years. In so doing, you will have a much clearer perspective of our nation’s apostasy and immorality vis-a-vis bearing the fruits of GOD’s righteousness. We hold these truths to be self-evident that we are living in the Last Days.
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.”
“And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls. And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter there into. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
[Revelation 18:1 – 24]
Any nation that vacates GOD’s commandments, by default, will become more ungodly and more evil. Ergo, in the context of the US military’s crusade for global dominance, is it possible that WE the People of the United States are enjoying “bread and circus” rather than being vigilant? For example, is DARPA’s raison d’être defense of the US or surreptitious offensive military engagements anywhere on Planet Earth? Is it possible, probable, plausible, or preposterous to believe that the US military ever would put Her own citizens in the cross hairs of Jade Helm’s sophisticated weaponry? Explain. Does the federal government work in tandem with mainstream media to obfuscate implementation of this New World Order? When Iraq Veterans Against the War [http://www.ivaw.org] speak out against war crimes and other atrocities our military has committed in the Middle East, are these dissidents living in 3-D: delusion, duplicity, and dishonesty? Or, might they be telling us the truth? In the context of genocide following our 2003 invasion of IRAQ, is it possible, probable, plausible or preposterous that Big Brother believes the ends justify the means as much as Pres. Andrew Jackson’s Manifest Destiny justified the Indian Removal Act and the Trail of Tears? Explain. Akin to the Crusades and other “religious wars”, invoking the “Divine favor” of Almighty God is classic propaganda that virtually guarantees the support of any citizenry. Yet, as is evidenced by the suicide rate among Iraq veterans, US crimes against humanity are not the hegemonic “birth right” of patriotic Americans. Moreover, IF we are a Christian nation, then why does global genocide satiate our blood thirst? IF we are Christian nation, then why has our federal government banned the Holy Bible from our public schools? IF we are a Christian nation, then why does our government fire teachers, professors, police, bus drivers, and other civil servants who oppose gay marriage and the GLBT agenda? Any nation that vacates GOD’s commandments, by default, becomes more ungodly and more evil…capish? IF we are a Christian nation, then why do we capriciously and callously murder millions of Muslims in the name of “fighting terrorists”? Is not the US military industrial complex the most prolific and most pernicious global terrorist organization mankind ever has known? Is not the pretext or mantra, “War On Terror” simply psychological anesthesia we hope will assuage our hegemonic guilt for crimes against humanity? IF an omnipotent and omniscient GOD created the Heavens and the Earth, replete with myriad rivers, mountains, nations, races, etc., then why would He mandate that any one race or religion decimate or destroy all others in the name of “God”? Perhaps, this is just a dress rehearsal for the Battle of Armageddon. Ultimately, will the destiny such a GOD will manifest and requite for those who delight in destroying His Earth be that they all spend eternity in Heaven or in Hell’s lake of fire? Explain.
“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from Heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six.”
THE RESURRECTION IS REAL
As a born-again Christian, I am well settled in my faith in Jesus Christ. Yet, I am not adverse to respecting Buddhists, Muslims, and Jews who express their faith otherwise. Even among Christians, there are more than 200 different denominations derived from their Ecclesiastical spin on the Bible. Ergo, in a nation wherein “In God We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, I challenge America’s Youths to ferret the Scriptures in order to discover GOD’s standards for what is morally right or wrong. Such a point of reference quickly will reveal how immoral Americana has become over the past quarter century. More important than merely listening to any rabbi, imam, pastor or priest, etc., perusal of the Scriptures will open your spiritual eyes in order to understand the nature of GOD and His expectations for mankind. So, how can anyone be sure that his religion, faith or belief is in the right “God”? This timeless existential question has been debated throughout human history by philosophers, sages, scholars, etc. Yet, is it wise for neophytes in high school to join any such debate, or simply to seek GOD and to allow Him to manifest His presence in their lives? Explain. In a nation wherein “In God We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, our public schools no longer inculcate piety, morality, or propriety based upon Scriptures. Instead, relativism and nihilism have become the moral plat du jour. For dessert, Wicca and Thelema afford Americans a pagan, hedonistic philosophy, “Do what thou wilt“, vis-a-vis obeying God’s commandments. While Victory In Christ Ensemble acknowledges that WE the People of the United States are not a Christian monolith, still VICE maintains that religious piety is far more virtuous that the folkways of any atheist or infidel. Stated differently, the Holy Bible is a moral GPS that facilitates supplanting human vices with more virtuous living. Thus, we invite atheists, agnostics, and infidels to consider studying the Scriptures in order to discern what is “truth”. Unlike when I was in middle school, today’s public school assemblies don’t present Christmas carols and plays depicting the Virgin Mary giving birth to the Son of God. That miracle of His Nativity alone makes Jesus Christ unique among men who walked the Earth. Throughout His Earthly ministry, this Carpenter’s Son demonstrated miracles and supernatural powers that caused consternation among the Pharisees and high priests. Today, the Prince of Darkness still can deceive agnostics of all ages via his bag of “tricks and treats” that truncates spiritual knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. Thus, Victory In Christ Ensemble [VICE] challenges seekers of the truth to consider taking a course in Christian Apologetics. Unlike Buddha or Muhammad, Jesus Christ rose triumphantly from the dead, thus fulfilling Biblical prophecy. Yet, after Jesus revealed Himself to His Disciples, the chief priests and the Jewish elders paid bribes to obfuscate the truth about the Messiah’s Resurrection. Whose report do you believe? Explain.
“In the end of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from Heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead; and, behold, He goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see Him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring His disciples word. And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held Him by the feet, and worshipped Him. Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see Me. Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole Him away while we slept. And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.” [Matthew 28:1-15]
TO THE VICTOR GO THE SPOILS!
“To the victor go the spoils,” is one of the lessons mighty men of war have learned since antiquity. Right? Yet, is this figure less than or comparable to the unseen global profits from the CIA’s cultivation of opium in Afghanistan? Explain. We the People may never know, thanks to the media’s deafening silence and thanks to hidden treuhands that can distribute “filthy lucre” without leaving a trace…or does GOD have the complete audit trail in a ledger next to the Book of Life? Explain.
“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.” [Revelation 17:1-17]
DO SEXUAL PREDATORS LIVE IN CYBERSPACE OR IN YOUR ZIP CODE?
Victory In Christ Ensemble [VICE] is a nascent book club that can educate and empower adolescents and young adults not to make this kind of “sexual mistake” that befalls countless teenagers. Moreover, VICE’s pedagogy is one that challenges Buddhists, Christians, Muslims and Jews to examine who we are physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. Why? IF virtually everything we do has a spiritual motive, a sexual motive or both, then how does one fight spiritual warfare? Perusal of the Scriptures will manumit teenagers from spiritual blindness. Thus, we believe and we teach members of VICE how to put on the whole armor of God. In other words, perusal of VICE’s unique textbook, “Child Molestation, Incest, or Neither?” [ISBN 978-1-4675-5868-6], replete with Scriptures, IQ Exams, Essay Questions, Sex Survey, and a Glossary for further study and research, provides information that can ameliorate parents, professors, and pastors, etc., being more transparent and more thorough when discussing sexuality with minors. The failure of parents to provide a transparent and thorough Sex Education is one of the principal reasons that Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim teenagers make sexual mistakes. Stated differently, IF all of Homo sapiens exist in a physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual body, then what impact does “spiritual death” have upon the vital signs of the organism? Ergo, WE can’t fix it IF we can’t face it….capish?
THE SISSYFICATION OF OUR SONS!
In this Age of Fatherlessness, am I the only perspicacious American male who is troubled by the “psychological penis complex” and the “sissyfication” of our sons? Obviously, not all homosexual or bisexual men are sissies; and not all lesbian or bisexual women are butch imitators of masculinity. Yet, human sexuality is a moral issue of paramount importance, especially for adolescents and young adults at the precipice of declaring their “sexual identity” or sexual orientation. While public school teachers can be fired for affirming that homosexuality and lesbianism are “perverted” and “immoral” according to the Bible, some school districts now require that kindergarten teachers inculcate the GLBT agenda. IF virtually everything we do has a spiritual motive, a sexual motive, or both, then what’s wrong with this picture of “In God We Trust”? Ergo, to satiate the legal mandate of “separation” of Church and State, I challenge parents to lobby for public schools to offer electives in Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. Are not all four religions in total agreement regarding the abominations of lesbianism, homosexuality, and bestiality? Yet, in addition to gay marriage, our current Commander in Chief also has legalized copulation with animals. As a man who has read the entire Bible more than a dozen times, I marvel at our citizenry even having this heated, yet sophomoric, debate regarding the Satanic GLBT agenda. Shouldn’t GOD’s destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by fire and brimstone ring a bell of warning? Explain.
In the 1960’s, Troy Perry founded the Metropolitan Community Church [MCC] as a “Christian” refuge for members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered communities. At the time, many mainstream denominations considered MCC to be an anomaly or apostate pseudo-religion. Today, however, many Christian seminaries and mainstream denominations teach tolerance for “Queer Theology” and even ordain GLBT ministers and pastors. At the risk of being redundant, is being born with beautiful jet black, mocha, or brown skin a sin? Thus, is the GLBT Movement even absurdly comparable to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s? IF you don’t want to obey the Bible, then you don’t want to be a Christian…c’est tout. Moreover, the Koran and the Torah concur that the GLBT agenda is anathema in Islam and Judaism. Ergo, in the context of spiritual purity and morality, are Pres. Obama, the US Supreme Court, Bishop Desmond Tutu, and Rev. Carlton Pearson, etc., suddenly now smarter than or wiser than Allah, Buddha, Jesus Christ and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? Or is sodomy a potent, demonic ritual of initiation into “The Brotherhood” of Satan’s Invisible Empire? Unabashedly, the Obama Administration is pressuring Caribbean and African nations to embrace the GLBT agenda or to lose humanitarian aid from the US. Even intelligent atheists can see what’s wrong with this picture of American hubris. Until we study the Scriptures, millions of Americans will remain spiritually blind to the New Age Theology. Albeit pleasant to the eye, Satan is laughing at members of the GLBT community who fail to see that his “tricks and treats” ultimately lead to death. Stated differently, will any adulterer, homosexual, fornicator, lesbian, or pedophile, reign with Christ when He returns or will all of them spend eternity in Hell’s Lake of Fire? I rest my case.
“And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”
[Revelation 22: 1 – 15]
THE DEPARTMENT OF JUVENILE INJUSTICE
Despite the behemoth federal agency, United States Department of Justice, does “justice” in the United States truly exist? Akin to Plato’s “Utopia”, is justice merely an apparition of an idealized world? Explain. In the context of rape, sodomy, forced fellatio, water boarding, and other sadistic atrocities we Americans have committed in IRAQ, Guantanamo Bay, et al., can Muslims expect justice from any American Court? Moreover, is this Pres. Obama’s second term in office or President Bush’s fourth term sub rosa? Explain. In either case, these crimes against humanity are neither unique nor new. For example, compare and contrast Pres. Bush’s pretext of a US “War on Terror” to justify vacating the Geneva Conventions, vis-a-vis Pres. Andrew Jackson’s pretext of “Manifest Destiny” to justify the Indian Removal Act and the subsequent Trail of Tears. An analysis of Pres. Jackson’s false promise that the Indigenous Americans would own lands west of the Mississippi forever is conspicuously absent from virtually all high school history books. Yet, any serious critique of US history will affirm that our government’s [as far back as Pres. George Washington] official policy toward Native Americans is similar to our hegemonic colonization of IRAQ. Does “justice” in the United States truly exist? On a personal note, the “colored” elementary school I attended in the 1960’s is less than a mile from Florida School for Boys at Marianna. Yet, I was well into my forties before I became aware of the unassailable, egregious child abuse at this infamous reform school. Perhaps, members of VICE and other conscientious Americans will use this case study to delve into discourse about the centuries-old practice of both the Church and the State treating minors in reform schools, orphanages, and foster care like chattel. Does “justice” in the United States truly exist?
Does the United States government make any legitimate attempt to rectify its crimes against humanity or does Big Brother protect sadistic soldiers and correctional officers alike? Are our war crimes inadvertent or deliberate standard operating procedures in the Middle East? Are reparations due to the White House Boys or to the Muslims in Gitmo our government has tortured without provocation? Do innocent victims have legal recourse or does loyalty to deniability and a code of silence inoculate America’s perpetrators of human rights violations? Despite a perfunctory facade of government agencies, i.e., Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services, Department of Children and Family, Department of Juvenile Justice, etc., pontificating about the “best interest” of teenagers and children, does physical abuse and child sex trafficking continue unabated at the behest of sodomites at the top of the pyramid? IF sodomy opens the “Third Eye”, then is it any mystery that the Devils’ penis is symbolic of Satanic blood and semen rituals held in secret temples, lodges, and groves etc.? Off duty, might these men who relish the sexual exploitation of children also be the same men you could meet at the local softball game, church picnic, or PTA meeting? Explain. With the privatization of countless juvenile facilities, prisons, and mental hospitals, will wardens, superintendents, correctional officers, and other employees be held accountable for sodomy, sadistic beatings, rape, murder, and other forms of penal child abuse? We hold these truths to be self-evident that any nation that vacates GOD’s commandments, by default, will become more ungodly and more evil. Ergo, in a nation wherein bisexuality, homosexuality, lesbianism, and even gender reassignment now are condoned as “normal” by Pres. Obama and countless other apostates, will institutionalized sexual abuse behind bars suddenly cease or exponentially increase? When Christ returns, will He catch many presidents, prime ministers, popes, professors, police, pastors, and parishioners with their pants down…[no pun intended]? Explain.
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
[II Thessalonians 2: 1-12]
THE GLBT MOVEMENT v. THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT
In support of the GLBT agenda, Pres. Barack Obama often has argued that gay and lesbian couples should be treated “fairly”. Ergo, is it fair for our government to sue Barronelle Stutzman for refusing to provide flowers for a homosexual marriage? Is it fair for an anti-Christ government to sue Robert and Cynthia Gifford for refusing to accommodate a lesbian wedding at Liberty Ridge Farm? According to the Bible, Koran, Torah, and Tripitaka, are not homosexuality and lesbianism quintessential forms of sexual perversion? Ergo, can the oxymoron “gay marriage” ever have moral parity with marriage between a man and a woman? Is beautiful jet black, mocha, or brown skin a sin? Thus, is the GLBT Movement even absurdly comparable to the Civil Rights Movement? Explain. In this context, are Pres. Obama, the US Supreme Court, Bishop Desmond Tutu, and Rev. Carlton Pearson, etc., suddenly smarter than or wiser than Allah, Buddha, the God of Abraham, and Jesus Christ? Or is sodomy a potent, demonic ritual of initiation into “The Brotherhood” of Satan’s Invisible Empire? Whereas freedom of religion should be protected by the Bill of Rights, is that right being supplanted by the GLBT agenda? Will any fornicator, homosexual, adulterer, pederast, lesbian, or pedophile, etc., reign with Christ or will all of them [lest they repent] spend eternity in Hell’s Lake of Fire? Is it “fair” for Almighty God both to judge and to condemn the gay community so harshly rather than “equally” with its heterosexual counterpart? Lastly, is the Obama Administration’s position on same sex marriage and homosexuality inextricable from his own sexual history? I rest my case.
“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
[Revelation 20: 1 – 15]
MILITARY JUSTICE v. MISBEHAVIOR BEFORE THE ENEMY
Recently, a friend of mine attempted to convince me that much of what we see in the news regarding (1) the World Trade Center attack, (2) the raison d’être for our invasion of IRAQ, (3) US military use of chemical weapons [depleted uranium] of mass destruction, (4) global profits from CIA production of opium in Afghanistan, (5) relentless drone strikes on civilian targets, etc., are mere speculation and “conspiracy theory” at best. Shall I say that he failed miserably in doing so? Why? Rather than to proffer evidence to the contrary, his primary argument was, “You were not there so you don’t know what happened!” On that point, he is correct. Yet, I do believe Edward Snowden, Bradley Manning, James Yee, Susan Lindauer, Ted Gunderson, Tomas Young, and other dissidents who were there to provide first-hand testimony about US misbehavior before a contrived “enemy” and the entire world. Undoubtedly, there are countless other Americans like my friend who would rather justify the United States’ crimes against humanity vis-à-vis holding ourselves accountable for barbaric savagery and genocide in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, et al. In the context of the United States’ global crimes against humanity, is our citizenry obtuse or delusional as we bury our heads in the sand? Ergo, while Bowe Bergdahl faces charges of misbehavior before the enemy, will Pres. Obama, Pres. Bush, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld, John Ashcroft, et al., ever be charged with high crimes and misdemeanors or is it “mere speculation” that the United States is guilty of war crimes? Explain.
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.”
[Revelation 21: 4 – 23]
UNCLE SAM GIVES INJURED IRAQ VETERANS A PERFUNCTORY APOLOGY
Correct me if I’m wrong; but I think that both Colin Powell and Donald Rumsfeld testified before Congress that Saddam Hussein had chemical weapons of mass destruction that were an imminent threat to US security. So, did IRAQ sell depleted uranium to the US military under the Bush Administration or did we already have on hand over 10,000 rounds used on civilians in 2003? Explain. Despite the horrific birth defects within IRAQ’s civilian population and debilitating illness among US troops, our government denies culpability. In the context of the United States’ unprovoked genocide and undeniable crimes against humanity, does Uncle Sam’s delusion, duplicity and dishonesty rival that of Napoleon, Snowball, Squealer and the other pigs in George Orwell’s Animal Farm? I rest my case.
