Jonathan Cahn/Charisma House #fundie #wingnut #magick #conspiracy charismanews.com

it possible that ancient gods have come back and are behind what is currently happening in America? Could their existence be transforming culture, families, children, businesses, government, technology—and even our very lives?
New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Cahn examines these chilling questions and more in his explosive new book, The Return of the Gods, available for pre-order now. In the groundbreaking book, Cahn takes readers on a journey from an ancient parable to the ancient inscriptions in Sumer, Assyria and Babylonia that become the puzzle pieces behind what is taking place in the world to this day, specifically in America.

Cahn promises to start to uncover ancient prophecies of old, as well as how they affect America today.
<...>
In the book, Cahn identifies three key ancient gods who are at work at this very moment—a dark trinity that embody the apostasy itself: the Possessor, the Enchantress and the Destroyer. These three spirits worked together in a progression of seduction, with the Possessor ushering in the Enchantress, then the Enchantress ushering in the Destroyer.

The Possessor was the first. To the nation of Israel, according to Cahn, he was the embodiment of paganism and of all pagan gods. He was the other god, the substitute god and he warred against the true God. He was the god that Israel turned to when it turned away from the Almighty God.
<...>
But the Possessor was not alone, Cahn warns. He had a wife known as the Enchantress.

"In some ancient mythologies of the Middle East, she was the goddess of sexuality and, specifically, of sexual immorality," says Cahn. "She was a seducer, a temptress, the goddess who captivated, allured and snatched away. As the patron goddess of the tavern, or alehouse, she was associated with the partaking of alcohol, particularly of beer. She dwelled in the taverns and mixed sexuality with intoxication."


This sexualization of Israel is exactly what is happening in America today.

It's been a few days since the FBI raided President Donald Trump's home in Mar-a-Lago, and the Biden Administration has yet to explain to the American people why they did what's never been done in American history—the government raiding the home of a former president. In my opinion, this is not just about politics, but spiritual warfare against Trump and the nation.
<...>
I believe God raised up Donald Trump and there is warfare going on—satanic activity that is trying to tear down the fabric of this country. This is not a new theory. I've interviewed Trump and written four books on him and the spiritual significance of what's happening in our nation. The Bible says that our war is not against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities in the air. Americans who are concerned about religious freedom and the threat of communist agendas to this country need to stand up and voice their support for President Trump.

As I've said in my books and on secular television interviews, I believe that in the early 2000's something happened to Trump spiritually. Sure, he was a real estate mogul in New York City and you've got to be tough to make it far in that world. Despite his influence in real estate, he was awakened to what was happening in America. I believe that in the same era, he was sensitive to the Lord.
<...>
What can each of us do? First, we can pray. As Spirit-led Christians, we can take authority over the enemy's attacks against Trump and against all who share his values and indeed against our nation itself. Then we can speak up in our own circles of influence and on social media. The deep state is intent on eliminating Trump from the political landscape. We can let it be known it will fail. And we can vote in the midterm elections and send principled conservatives to Washington to push back on those who are weaponizing the Department of Justice and FBI to attack their political enemies.

After being in prison for nearly a year and half—much of it in solitary confinement in the Washington, D. C. jail—for simply trying to save the life of Roseanne Boylan who was beaten to death along with three other patriots killed by police on Jan. 6, 2020, Jake Lang blesses God for considering him worthy of suffering.

"We battle this spiritual warfare by the love of God, staying grateful and praising God," says Lang, speaking from the detention facility and referencing the dramatic new documentary, The Truth About January 6th.

Lang narrates the documentary from the Washington, D.C., jail. With newly released video from individuals at the rally as well Capitol cameras, the story is finally told of how the nearly 1 million godly men and women gathered on the Ellipse on Jan. 6 to pray and seek the face of God to save the stolen election, then walked down to the Capitol to provide moral courage and strength for the disputed counting of electoral votes. This routine process occurs in every election, resulting in certification, and when both a senator and congressman support a challenge, the votes are returned to the states for a 10-day pause.
<...>
Over 800 godly men and women have been charged in a completely fraudulent series of arrests. The movie reveals the Capitol Police inviting people into the Capitol grounds as well as the Capitol itself, in addition to showing people leaving when instructed to by the same Capitol Police. This stands in contrast to the 537 riots during the summer of 2020 by Black Lives Matter and antifa, which resulted in over $2 billion in damage; 2,000 injuries to police officers and others; and 30 deaths. The only deaths on Jan. 6 were those of Benjamin Phillips, Ashli Babbit, Rosanne Boyland and Kevin Greeson—all killed by the Capitol Hill police.

"It's like being in the desert where Christ staved off the devil and where angels ministered to him," Lang continues.

Kevin McGary/Every Black Life Matters (EBLM) #fundie #wingnut #conspiracy charismanews.com

The evil demoniac Karl Marx has made his mark! Marx's expressed desire and goal to "dethrone God" is now being manifested. We are witnessing quite an ironic time in Christendom.

The demonism of Marxism is subtly replacing the sufficiency of the cross. The foundation of Marxism is atheism.
<...>
Has "carrying water" for the Marx/Marxist sentiment helped spread the gospel? Societal chaos, racial animus, hatred, distrust and an unparalleled record of death and destruction are confirmed Marxist outcomes. None of these comport with the outcomes Jesus promises—no surprise—because Marxism is demonism.
<...>
After stewing in academia and the radical fringes, "progressive theology," "social justice," Liberation Theology, CRT and Marxism (generally) are making significant negative impacts on the body of Christ. Many religious leaders now rely more on the immediacy of the Marx-inspired activism and less on Jesus' inerrant gospel.
<...>
Simply stated, syncretism is the melding or comingling outside religious ideas, theories and precepts with the purity of the gospel message. The melding of Marxism with biblical tenets through Liberation Theology is an example of syncretism.
<...>
Every Black Life Matters (EBLM) comprises ministers and laypeople, all unapologetically committed to upholding the sufficiency of the cross, purity of the gospel and unwavering Lordship of Christ. We help confront and combat the trajectory of a Marxist, demonic paradigm. EBLM's Remnant Rising workshops are designed to combat the gamut of Marx's 'woke' machinations, including CRT, Liberation Theology and 'social justice.'
<...>
EBLM recognizes we are in this battle together, and we all unite at the cross, never at the altar of our increasingly demonic culture. Therefore, if you desire to renounce carrying water for Marx, and are determined to pick up and carry the Jesus' cross, let us help you unite and fight in this effort.

There was a day when equal rights for Black Americans was the cause celebre of the Left. But for more than a decade now, gay rights have trumped Black rights. Why? There was a day when equal rights for women was the cause celebre of the Left. But in recent years, trans rights have trumped women's rights. Why has this happened? I believe I have the answer.
<...>
So, why is it that the same group of people (meaning the "progressives" or "the Left") who fought so tenaciously for Black rights now make that cause secondary to gay rights? And why is it that the same group of people who fought so tenaciously for women's rights now make that cause secondary to trans rights?

I believe the answer is staring us right in the face: it was not Blacks or gays or women or transgenders who were the ultimate issue. It was challenging the status quo that was the ultimate issue. It was rebelling against the system. It was saying no to the prevailing tradition of the hour, whether that tradition was bad (such as segregation) or that tradition is good (such as the integrity of women's sports).

Put another way, in the end, a radical agenda was more important than people (be they Blacks, women, gays or transgenders). And so, to this hour, what ultimately drives this radical, leftist agenda is not so much compassion but rather the "leftness" of the ideology.

I'm sure that there are many caring leftists. And I'm sure many of them have been grieved at what they perceive to be real inequalities and injustices. In fact, many on the Left feel aggrieved for themselves, as they too are Black or female or identify as gay or trans, and they too suffered mistreatment.
<...>
That's why, in the days ahead, something else might arise to push trans rights to the side. And on and on it goes.

How then, do we combat this radical leftist agenda? By exposing its moral hypocrisy. By demonstrating a heart of compassion for each group and individual. And by striving for equality under the law for all.

In the midst of the intense national debate about transgender rights, transgender athletes and transgender children, it is all too easy to lose sight of perhaps the most important issue of all. Specifically, if you support the medical transitioning of children, you are potentially supporting their chemical castration.

What an absolute outrage. How dare any person of conscience advocate for this?

Are you familiar with the name Alan Turing? He was a brilliant British mathematician and computer pioneer best known for his lifesaving work during World War II. At that time, "Turing played a crucial role in cracking intercepted coded messages that enabled the Allies to defeat the Axis powers in many crucial engagements, including the Battle of the Atlantic."

Yet Turing was also homosexual and, after the war, was found guilty of three counts of "gross indecency contrary to Section II of the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885" for having consensual sexual relations with another man.
<...>
Barely two years later, in 1951, when he was just 41, Turing was found dead by cyanide poisoning, an apparent suicide.
<...>
Yet the very same people who are repulsed by the way Turing was treated actually support something even more horrible, namely, the chemical castration of children.
<...>
In the days ahead, I'm scheduled to interview a female-to-male trans-identified individual who differs with me when it comes to God, the Bible, Christian moral standards, homosexual practice and a host of other issues.

But we have agreed to shout from the rooftops as loudly as we can for the sake of these at-risk kids.

Some will say to me, "When you will stop writing about this stuff? You sound like a broken record. Enough already!"

My answer is simple: I'll stop writing about this when our society stops promoting such social madness rather than finding healthy ways to help these hurting kids from the inside out.

Let us unite to stand against the chemical castration of children.

I'll just say that Satan obtained permission from the Lord to sift my wife and me.

No, he didn't cause the sickness, but what he did during the trial offered us a great temptation to curse God as Job's wife and friends encouraged him to. There were demonic manifestations throughout my own trial that I didn't understand and in my broken-down mental condition could not resist. If I told you, you wouldn't believe it.

One day I turned to Carolyn in one of the lowest moments of her own trial, when she was in excruciating pain and had to be rushed yet again to the emergency room, and in frustration I asked her, "Why are we serving the Lord?"
<...>
God is using the political upheaval and economic and societal pressures to purge His church from friendship and adultery with the world. He is sifting our motives to prepare us for what lies ahead. We are in a serious time of judging ourselves. Stop playing church, Christian! Stop your love affair with the world. Stop serving yourself.

Are you serving God for the loaves and fishes? Do you only follow Him when things go well and smoothly in your life? How is your attitude when you don't understand the what and why of your circumstances?
<...>
We don't fear death anymore, so what can the devil possibly do to us? Kill us and send us right into the presence of the Lord forever? He's got nothing! He's been stripped of all his power over us. You see, friends, it's in the dying to ourselves that we truly live.

What is this pandemic? I spit in its face.

What is COVID to us? I'm not being insensitive to anyone who has suffered or died from it. If they were followers of Jesus, they are now with the Lord. I don't feel sorry for them. Are you kidding me? They wouldn't return to the earth even if they could. It's far better to be with the Lord; that's the Bible, folks.

This is the motto by which we must live by in these last days: Live free or die. Or probably better said, die and live free.

Bill Yount #fundie #wingnut #magick charismanews.com

I couldn't believe God would say such a thing:

"Your government is one of My greatest harvest fields. Pray it into My kingdom and remember, those politicians were on the same cross when I died, right next to you."

"You mean we should love the Democrats and Republicans?" I said.

"I don't see Democrats and Republicans; I only see lost men and lost women on both sides of the aisle," He said. "You see men as trees walking. Saul, who had Christians murdered, was not beyond my reach. I changed His name to apostle Paul and surprised My people in his day by writing most of the New Testament through him. I want to change more names."

Pray More in the Spirit This Coming Year

"Speaking in tongues is a gift of the Spirit. Holding your tongue is a fruit of the Spirit." —Unknown

While I was praying in tongues, it sounded like Chinese.

"Lord, what is this?" I asked.

"You are praying for China," He told me.

"You mean China that's on the news?"

He gave me more names on that list, but I can't release them, for it would start a riot in the body of Christ. If you would like to know who is on God's Most Wanted list, make a list of people you don't want to pray for and put your worst enemy on it.

Beware: Sometimes God puts gems in our enemies. As we love them, we discover the rubies and diamonds.

As you pray for your enemies, God's pen moves to write their story. And He's not through writing yours, either. Until we learn not to rejoice when our enemies fall, God will keep raising them back up until we do (Prov. 24:17-18).

I think we have it backward. We need to win friends instead of arguments.

In the Lord of the Rings trilogy, there is a scene in which the king of Rohan, King Theoden, is under a spell by his chief advisor, Grima, a wizard. Fortunately, Gandalf (the Good) comes on the scene and breaks the evil spell over King Theoden, and he comes to his senses. While under the spell of Grima, his chief advisor, the kingdom of Rohan starts to fall apart at the seams; everything is going in the wrong direction. When the rightful King Theoden comes to his senses, he puts everything back into order again. Perhaps we may be blessed to see this situation reenacted when the rightful president returns to power in our land.

When I look at what is happening to America, I see the unrighteous Biden administration having stolen an election and placed an elderly man with dementia in the highest position of power, "on the throne" so to speak. The evil principality Baal (a word which means owner), one who wants to control, is exercising "control" over the citizens of America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. Why are "We the People" willing to let go of our freedom in exchange for safety and security?
My thoughts move to the war over our minds. It has struck me repeatedly that the policy decisions being made at the highest levels of our government (in all three branches of our government: executive, legislative and judicial) are not stupid decisions made by ignorant people but rather conscious, intentional decisions made by evil people. Political leaders who have covenanted with evil now run our democratic republic, causing us to no longer function like a democratic republic operated for the benefit of the people. Rather we are rapidly moving to a totalitarian state run by a group of elitists who believe they know what is better for us, the citizenry. We the People have been functioning in a stupor, a cloud as it were, as if under a spell of some demonic kind.

Tuesday, I received breaking news from my crusade director in Haiti. The news was disturbing and showed that God's power cannot be overcome by even the most wicked darkness.
<...>
In the months prior to the crusade, apparently witches were going around into the very village I preached the gospel in just two weeks ago. As a part of their voodoo rituals, they were offering blood sacrifices, which led to them eating children. They taunted the few believers who were there, saying that the locals needed to follow the power of the witches.

Testimonies are now being received from the village:

- This is the first time the people have seen such a great power and authority. All glory to Jesus!

- The witches no longer have power because the works of the devil were destroyed.

- When the witches tried to test us in the meetings to "see if we had any real power," they couldn't look at us. They reported seeing a fire surrounding us and their power would no longer work.

- Many witches renounced their witchcraft, repented of their sins, gave their lives to Jesus and are now going around the village, telling people about their testimonies of encountering Jesus through the ministry. They have become evangelists.

In five days, I board an airplane for our next crusade. More than 70,000 people are projected to attend in this unreached nation over a three-day crusade. We will also be equipping hundreds of pastors as well in a pastors' conference! Religious extremism is rampant, Christians are being killed for their faith, Christian literature is being burned, villages with Christian people are being isolated and cut off from water wells and running water, and the tragedies are all around.

The only hope for our world is Jesus. We are willing to risk everything to bring Jesus to them. Will you send us?

This article is not meant to attack young people struggling with deep-seated gender confusion. To the contrary, it is meant to expose the attack on these young people.

To be totally candid, it's as if a spirit of madness has descended on our society targeting the youth in particular. It's as if reality has been turned upside down and truth no longer matters—or even exists. And it is downright heartbreaking to witness.

I have been warning against the trajectory of LGBTQ activism since 2004, and over these years, I have talked with countless parents and spouses and siblings, many of them weeping as they shared their stories. But recently, after speaking to several thousand Christians in Franklin, Tennessee, the accumulation of stories I heard was overwhelming.

<...>
And that men's bathrooms on college campuses now carry tampons, since "men can menstruate" too?

And that a man who identifies as a woman and is married to a woman who identifies as a man has now impregnated his "husband," so that "he" is now carrying "her" baby?

And that universities across the country will begin the fall semester asking students for their preferred gender pronouns, ranging from tey/tem/ter/temself to fae/faer/faers/faerself and from zhe/zhir/zhirs/zhirself to bun/bun/buns/bunself?

It's as if a horde of demons has been unleashed and our society has fallen into deep deception and delusion. And the ultimate victims, targeted for indoctrination from their earliest years, are the children. (If you think I'm exaggerating, take a minute to watch this "queer, non-binary" preschool teacher celebrating her accomplishments or this toddler reading through a gay ABC book.)

Whatever the cause of this societal madness, the question that remains is simple: what are we going to do about it?

Michael Brown #fundie #conspiracy #wingnut #homophobia #transphobia charismanews.com

There really is an all-out war on our children. We can hardly overstate it and we dare not ignore it.

They are being slaughtered in the womb. They are being kidnapped and sold into sex slavery. They are being raped and abused and neglected and used. They are being brainwashed by their teachers and bullied by their peers. Their innocence is being robbed and their security is being stolen.

Without exaggeration, we can say that no generation in American history has been subject to such a concerted, demonic attack.
<...>
The demonic attack against you is especially acute if you are a black baby. You have less than a 75% chance of making it out alive because of abortion. If you are a black baby conceived in New York City, you have less than a 50% chance of making it out of the womb alive.
<...>
A couple of years later, in your pre-K class, the teacher reads storybooks to you, pretty books with colorful pictures. Some feature boys wearing dresses; others depict a little girl with her two daddies. And your teacher refers to all of you as "friends," since calling you "boys and girls" makes unnecessary gender distinctions — whatever those are.
<...>
Somehow, you manage to graduate from high school, enrolling in one of the top colleges in the nation. There you will learn that America is an evil country, that all whites are guilty, that belief in the Judeo-Christian God is a joke, and that there is no such thing as absolute morality. Or absolute truth. Or absolute reality. Things are what you perceive them to be. You define reality. And truth. And morality. That's what you're getting for $40,000 a year.

To be fair, though, you will learn some very helpful skills, like remembering everyone's preferred gender pronouns, such as xe and zer and hir. On the other hand, should you question anything you're being taught, you'll learn something else very quickly: dissent is not permitted. Now you're ready to be an adult.

Purveyors of homosexuality are extreme in the function of sex itself. Living without sex is not life-threatening. Utilizing sex organs is an act of the will based on desire, not a life-sustaining necessity. People can control their sexual appetites or inflame them. To treat acts of sex as necessities is extremism.

Medical doctors are part of the extremist legacy. Psychiatrists have removed "religious taboos" to redefine intimacy, family and culture so we accept what is truly bizarre as merely "different." Surgeons cosmetically alter bodies based on gender preference. However, because nature refuses such changes, an endless stream of medications are required to sustain the pretense.

Financial costs for this new "protected" group in now a governmental legacy based on "doing" not "being." Now, people may "try" homosexuality just to cash in on benefits. After their choice is a matter of record, if their sexual desires change, they can still enjoy the benefits. Who will police the bedrooms for the kind of sex occurring? How many homosexual encounters must one have to remain qualified for homosexual benefits? A nation that puts such a burden upon its citizens because a select group wants to practice certain sex acts is troublesome, but for a nation as great as the United States, it is embarrassing.
<...>
Societies are responsible to protect citizens from threats and at-risk behaviors. The financial tab for monetizing today's at-risk behavior will continually grow. We will all bear the burden of expensive medical treatments and fraudulent claims for deviant actions, not conditions, which cannot be verified because they are performed in private.

Few people know that in the 1800s, America embraced a goddess with roots in ancient Rome.

Her Roman name is Libertas, but she is also referred to as the goddess of Liberty, Lady Liberty and Columbia. Under the latter name, she became the very depiction of America.

Libertas is the goddess of liberty and personal freedom. Liberty is a blessing to a moral people. To the moral, it gives the freedom to live a life free of tyranny. But to an amoral or immoral people, it becomes a curse. For these, it becomes the freedom to seek material, fleshly desires and leads them down a path of slavery to sin.

This is the dual nature of the goddess Libertas. She promises freedom but sets a deadly snare. As a nation under Libertas slides in its morals, she offers the liberty to sin. This sin infects the nation from its citizens all the way up to the government officials who sit in high offices below her idolatrous feet.
<...>
This is the snare of Libertas. To the moral, liberty is virtuous, but to the amoral or immoral, it becomes the freedom to do as one pleases.

To amoral politicians, Libertas leads to serving selfish interests instead of serving the public's interests. Such people seek power, not servitude.

To the unbelievers, Libertas manifests in a self-serving culture filled with sexual liberality, infidelity, pornography, abortion, divorce and materiality.
<...>
I will go as far as saying that Libertas' freedom is bondage under a demonic idol.
<...>
Libertas promises freedom, but when her freedom becomes freedom from righteousness, it becomes slavery to sin (Rom. 6:20). In her snare, Libertas becomes a gateway to other demonic forces such as Jezebel, Baal and Molech.

What plagues or torments you? Family? Economy? Uncertainty? Crime and chaos in the streets? Political conditions?

When considering why they're most tormented, most people think in these general terms. Rarely do we consider going beyond the "general" to delve into the depths of the essential criteria; the foundations of our eternal being; the condition of our immortal soul and its relative torment.
<...>
In the soul, grotesque imaginations, unbelievable levels of heartbreak and insatiably demanding aggrievements are just some of the highly emotional manipulations that can take root. Our foe manipulates it all to torment us. But fundamentally, he seeks to exalt and cement a permanent structure dedicated to himself in our souls; that structure is the totem of unforgiveness!

Satan fully understands the eternal and unequivocal demand God has declared: We must forgive to receive His forgiveness. Dire eternal consequences result from our unforgiveness, and foremost is we will not receive God's forgiveness!
<...>
Critical race theory (CRT), liberation theology and Black liberation theology all share a fundamental diabolical characteristic; that characteristic is the tormenting plague: unforgiveness! Ask yourself: If you could rely on God's overflowing grace to truly forgive others for all of the purported aggrievements and pain due to "slavery in 1800's," "white supremacy," "systemic racism," cries of "white nationalism," "white privilege," "victim/oppressor paradigms" and resentment toward the Western world and religion, then could you still concurrently embrace CRT and liberation theology?

If you are sincere, the answer is no! Those idea movements thrive on aggrievement and resentment; they cannot exist without embracing and committing to unforgiveness. These neo-cultural movements are not merely a direct attack on our family, community, national sovereignty and religious foundations (by driving divisiveness and hate). They, more importantly, attack our very souls directly.

Active Faith Ministries #fundie #homophobia #wingnut charismanews.com

The right heart. The right goals. The right contact information—right into the hands of those who serve the enemy.
That's what happened to one Texas ministry when they decided to plan an event for their town. Longview, Texas, is just a medium-sized town of 80-90,000. Rated one of the nation's top 100 places to retire in 2018, Longview sits in the quiet green of piney woodlands in East Texas.

A multi-denominational group of Christians started putting stakes with verses on them in the ground at all the entrances of their city in 2017 with Scriptures that declared the authority of God over the land and its people. The annual event, called Operation Spiritual Warfare (OSW), sponsored by the local ministerial alliance, has recently sparked increased public interest.

When Charli Caraway and Steve Hemphill shared their event poster with local pastors, it began spreading on social media. They clearly shared that they wanted to proclaim sexual purity and protection against witchcraft for their city on the poster. Now, Active-Faith.org and the project itself are receiving daily harassment from members of the homosexual community and witches from all over the state.

In 2017, OSW staked the city and in 18 months crime decreased 45%. It had historically increased for 25 years. So, the group made it an annual event and repeated the staking and prayer vigil in 2018 and 2019.
<...>
The kickback has been real. One witches' coven has announced an entire event on Feb. 12 to counteract OSW and declared publicly that they will be protesting, chanting and giving free tarot card readings during the OSW event. Caraway has received numerous phone calls of threats and harassment by many individuals opposed to the event from all over the state.

Although no condemnation was ever shared toward any group or person in the original poster, the enemy has worked to twist the actual message and the intent of the event. Caraway and Hemphill are not surprised and, in fact, are encouraged to move forward.

It's a day almost every young woman dreams about: the day she gets to say yes to the dress.

But in the case of "Ann" (whose name has been changed to protect her identity), that special day shifted to a trauma-filled nightmare.

"As a wonderful Christian woman in her early 20s ... she has been saving herself for the husband whom God had planned for her," says Mat Staver, president and founder of Liberty Counsel.

"So she goes to this bridal store; she has an appointment," Staver says. "She walks in, and the manager of the store puts her in touch with a person who is an assistant. And that assistant then takes her in to look at bridal gowns and then takes her into a private dressing room. And of course, these bridal outfits are hard to get in and out of. And so this young woman is having to dress and undress and be fitted, and this person is touching various private parts of her body. She has an uneasy feeling about this individual. This person has a ponytail, has a mask on. ... But there's something that, in her spirit, was not right."

And Ann's spirit spoke the truth. The person who was fitting her with her wedding gown was, in fact, a transgender man.

Staver shares the story as a part of a plea for believers to take seriously the dangers of the Equality Act and the fact that situations like this, where Staver's Liberty Counsel is working to defend Ann's religious freedom, will become normal and legal should we allow the Equality Act to pass. This dangerous bill will protect the transgender man's right to work, dress and behave as a woman while ignoring Ann's right to privacy and to the faithful carrying out of her religious beliefs.

There is not a doubt in my mind that the earth has been thrusted into a rapid accelerated end-time signs of the times. The antichrist spirit is unleashing an agenda that is preparing the earth for the revealing of the Antichrist himself through the forcing of governmental mandates. The antichrist agenda consists of a threefold purpose of a one-world government, one-world religion and a one-world currency. You do not have to look very far to see the global governments unifying, currency under attack and the persecution of Christianity. Welcome to the last days, where the true, uncompromised church must stand!
<...>
Finally, many are being to forced to social distance in the name of safety. The government mandates seek to force people to stay six feet away from one another. This is interesting as I consider precursors to the Antichrist agenda that desires to persecute Christianity. The Bible is clear that the number of the Antichrist's name is 666. As believers in Jesus Christ, we are called to lay hands on the sick. We know that according to the Word of God, Jesus did not social distance from those that were afflicted with leprosy. Forced social distancing appears to attack fundamental beliefs within Christianity, including laying hands on the sick, water baptism and even serving communion. None of these things can be accomplished 6 feet away from each other.

The purpose of this writing is to encourage you to consider and see clearly that many of the forced government mandates are functioning as precursors to the coming Antichrist agenda in which society will be conditioned to abandon freedoms, including religious freedoms, or their ability to buy or sell will be restricted. I must remind you that in the face of all current and coming governmental mandates that as a believer in Jesus Christ, your body is not your own nor does it belong to the government. Your body belongs to God!

Pastor Paula White-Cain led Donald Trump to faith in Christ before he became a candidate for the presidency. At the time, White-Cain wisely never openly spoke of it. However, at a White House dinner in May of 2017, Vice President Mike Pence stated, "Donald Trump has prayed to receive Christ as his Lord and Savior," with the president sitting only about 10 feet away.

...

The first time that pastors "placed hands" on him to pray for him, Trump appeared to be shocked, looking over his shoulders at the hands on him, wondering what was going on. Months later, he would say to us, "lay hands on me and pray for me." He genuinely honors the role of prayer and has asked for it with increasing frequency.

...

He is frequently attacked for "character." I have observed politics and government closely since age nine when Dwight Eisenhower was running against Adlai Stevenson. (I know that is strange, but from August 13 of my ninth year, a "government anointing"—that's what I call it—came upon me, I have followed politics virtually every day since). I have never seen a nationally elected official so honor his campaign promises like Donald Trump. His critics cannot seem to understand that honoring one's campaign commitments is a demonstration of character.

...

How often have you heard someone bring up something about Donald Trump's past? The "Never Trumpers" obsess with this. Let me cut to the chase. Every person reading this has things from their past they wish they could change. Just because one has a "Saul" past, does not mean one cannot have a "Paul" present. The nature of the gospel is one of redemption.

Before I talk about the lockdown and the message from God for California, let me talk about San Francisco.

San Francisco was once the most beautiful city in America. Even Billy Graham once said that San Francisco was so beautiful, "I hesitate to preach about heaven while I'm here."

I know all about that beauty, because I grew up there. Indeed San Francisco once was heavenly, but now it is a living hell. An ash heap of despair, filth and violence.

You cannot walk the streets without being assaulted by the stench of marijuana clouds on Market Street. Hundreds of zombies sit in lawn chairs up against stores. Watch your step! That could be human waste or a dirty needle.

Step right up and see a pandemic of addiction. Witness the stores that live with mass looting. Oh wait, you do not have to come here for that. The police, who have been told to stand down, use their smartphones to film stolen merchandise being carried freely out of stores.

No need to take a long trip to Venezuela to examine the malignancy of socialism; just visit the Blight by the Bay. This city is the manifestation of the policies of the Democrat Party.

Socialism in San Francisco is a soul-sucking experience. Ask the people who live here. Many of them came with a dream for equality and justice. Now, they just want out. A full 40% of its residents say they will be gone in two years. 40 percent!

San Francisco is a trophy of hell. It is a harbinger of what is coming for the rest of the state if they are not delivered from the Democrat Party. California teeters on the edge of oblivion.

My purpose in life—my reason for being—is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ and see His church strengthened and built up in America and around the world. I have no vested interest in any candidate or political party but will vote for the one whose policies are most friendly to the cause of Christ and my own reason for being.

The Democratic Party—the party of my parents and grandparents—has made this an easy choice. To cite just one example; last year, the Democrat National Committee (DNC) unanimously passed a resolution affirming atheism and declaring that neither Christianity nor any religion is necessary for morality or patriotism.

By this act, they rejected God, the Bible and any transcendent guide for truth and morality. They swallowed the lie of the serpent to our first parents that if they would ignore God's command and go their own way, "You will be like God, knowing [determining] good and evil" (Gen. 3:5b).

This move was not only a slap in the face of God, but also a rejection of America's founding generation. To cite just one example: In his first inaugural address, George Washington declared, "The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the external rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained (Hyatt, Pilgrims and Patriots, 174).

Donald Trump, despite his tweets and personal flaws, has supported individual and religious liberty. He has acknowledged God and Christ and promoted policies that are friendly to the Christian cause. He has obviously moved in the direction of Christian, conservative values.

But while Trump has been moving toward God, the Democratic Party has been running from Him. This has made Nov. 3 an easy choice for me. If you would like to read more about my thoughts on this election and Donald Trump, check out my 31-page book, 5 Reasons I Changed My Mind About Donald Trump.

David Lane #fundie #wingnut #conspiracy charismanews.com

Over the last few years, we have raised a quite similar spiritual flag to accentuate that "Two distinct religions are vying for supremacy in the public square: transient and mutable secularism versus eternal and immutable Christianity. These two can't coexist, one will ultimately collapse as a consequence of the elevation of the other."

So, we have come full circle, ending up where we began: a nation torn apart by secularism, morally adrift and off its moorings.

The American founders knew from their experience in 16th- and 17th-century England that blindness prevents mankind from recognizing, discerning, envisioning or understanding objects even under maximum light intensity. Likewise, the best eyes are useless when a person is in total darkness. Thus they established biblically based education. Having removed the bedrock from the culture over the last 100 years, contemporary America possesses neither spiritual sight nor spiritual light.

The secular subjugation of culture by Big Tech's Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and America's corporate media conglomerate through suppression of free speech and throwing our children into sexual confusion through secularization of government-run schooling, the secular media's and Hollywood jet set's control of the airways, arts and entertainment has come at the price of the complete loss of the main element that exalts a nation: righteousness (Prov. 14:34).

Like many others, I was concerned about Trump's temperament. He seemed overly brash, bombastic and rude. I didn't like how he labeled people, even his fellow Republicans, with derogatory names such as "Little Marco," Lying Ted," "Low-Energy Jeb" and so on.

With the advantage of hindsight, however, I now see that the temperament of a combative, New York businessman was just what was needed. With political perversion and corruption so deeply embedded in Washington, D.C., a businessman from Queens who had spent years battling corrupt New York politicians, the Mafia and other competitive businesspeople was exactly what was needed at this time in history. A "nice" person would never do.

In Scripture, the people whom God used were not always "nice." John the Baptist was rough and uncouth in both his appearance and his mannerisms. He used harsh language, even calling the proud religious leaders of his day a "brood of vipers" and warning them to flee from the coming wrath of God (Matt. 3:7-10). Yet he was the one chosen by God to announce the coming of the Messiah to the earth.

...

I am not comparing Trump with John the Baptist or Jesus, but merely making the point that in a sinful and fallen world, "niceness" is not always the most needed and desirable characteristic.

Gary Curtis #transphobia #fundie #wingnut charismanews.com

Transgenderism is a dangerous and destructive ideology. And, it is about to be used to transform civil rights legislation and affect us all. Earlier this year, the so-called Equality Act was reintroduced into the U.S. House of Representatives as H.R. 5, after failing to receive Senate approval in 2019. This time, it passed the Democrat-dominated House and now waits to be considered in the Senate.

The new H.R. 5 amends Title VII of our civil rights law, among other laws, to explicitly redefine the bigender meaning of sex and add sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) as outlawed forms of discrimination.

That may sound like a good idea to many. Who would want to make discrimination legal? But H.R. 5 actually proposes profound and far-reaching changes to the 1960's Civil Rights Act that would directly threaten religious liberty, free speech and freedom of conscience for all Americans.
<...>
The Equality Act is demonstrably hostile to religion. It will force faith-based organizations to adjust their programs, open up their privacy facilities to transgender (opposite-sex) persons and revise employment policies, or be subject to punitive liability.

H.R. 5 would erase biological reality (male and female) and actually reduce, not expand, protections against discrimination, contrary to the original intent of Congress. Sanctity of life laws, parental rights and the privacy and safety of women and girls may all be in jeopardy, if "gender identity" (read ideology) is enshrined into U.S. Civil Rights law.

Pastor Shane Idleman #fundie #wingnut charismanews.com

The upcoming election is causing increased division among Christians. It leaves many people confused when some Christians denounce Trump and elevate Biden. Their reasoning goes something like this: “How can you vote for Trump based on his character?” But the real question we should be asking is, “What direction is the country heading, spiritually speaking?

Obviously, character is important, but, if a man has decent character according to some, yet believes in infanticide and in euthanizing the disabled, do we look at his character over his policies? Of course not.

God doesn't judge a nation based on the character of one man, but He may judge it based on the spiritual health of her people. Policy often speaks louder than character—although ideally, they should match.

The president is hated, not because of his character, but because of what he stands for. He is a disruptive force. If the abortion industry, George Soros, most of the media, antifa and Hollywood are on your side, are you sure you're on the right side?

I don’t want to hear about someone’s “character” when they think it’s okay to kill a child, even at 9 months, and they reject the “born-alive” bill. I’m not concerned with nice tweets when they promote real hate, support sexual perversion and want to burn down our cities — and on and on it goes.

Dr. Michael Youssef #fundie #wingnut #conspiracy charismanews.com

According to Dr. Michael Youssef, if the church fails to adhere to biblical truth, the consequences of wokeness will be devastating for future generations. The bestselling author compares child-rearing to a "three-legged stool," stressing the importance of a healthy home, church and school environment.

"The home is No. 1, the church is No. 2 and school is No. 3," Youssef says. "Even if the school is working against the kids, if they have the strength in the home and in the church, they will make it. But when the church avoids talking about issues or goes along with culture, then kids are confused.

"Satan is working overtime to deceive children," he adds. "If these words are terrifying, I'm glad they are because it's time for us to build the fences around our children and their hearts and seal them with the Holy Spirit.

"Children must know that there is a Satan and he hates God; he hates God's children; and he's conspiring against them every minute of every day," Youssef says." Therefore, they have to galvanize themselves with the power of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, in order to fight."

Youssef describes wokeness for his readers. "Wokeness is a religion. It has no God, but it has all the other trappings of a bullying, self-righteous, pharisaic religion. It demands absolute faith and mindless obedience. It has creeds and dogmas that no one dares to violate. Its doctrines can change without warning, and any who don't get the memo will be stoned as heretics.

"People who transgress the rules of the wokeness religion may spend a lifetime atoning for their sin—but they'll never be forgiven. Wokeness is a religion without grace or mercy."

(Discussing why he thinks Trump is a good man)

...Many "common people" feel—quite correctly—that the "elites" mock them. And they do. The president understands this more than anyone, because the "elites" look down not only on the "common person," but on Trump as well. There is a connection between Trump and his audience regarding this issue. They have grown weary of the cynical, mocking, controlling elites of society.

... if you want to understand the man, you need to know this axiom: "The president will not start a fight, but he will finish it." That was told to me by a person who has known him extremely well for a long time. Next time you see him in a "fight," remember who started it.

Thirdly—and this comes again from someone who knows him really well—and I quote, "he really wants to do what is right." I have observed this quality about him. This is one of the characteristics I most appreciate about of our president.

Fourth, he is a superb listener. Everyone who meets with him observes that he is a quick study and listens intently. I do not think I have ever observed one who so intuitively grasps an issue.

...he really loves America. Nothing more need be said.

Eighth, he is a New York City street fighter—not with fists, but with words. It is at this point that "Never Trumpers" become apoplectic. What they do not understand is the depth of vile, vengeful and deceitful disdain that the Democratic/media/academic/Hollywood cabal (with some business and sports figures piling on as well) have for Trump. It is wicked. I am stunned he survives it every single day. Let's be honest, you and I do not face what he does daily.

We need a fighter. We have one. We need a disrupter. We have one. We need a wrecking ball. We have one. Mother Teresa is wonderful, but we do not need someone like her for our president right now. We desperately need a Churchill. We have one.

The enemy wants God's people silenced in every possible way.

No churches, no outside worship, no home Bible studies and no mention of the Bible at all when offering social services or educational courses to more than a handful of attendees. No displays of the Ten Commandments or the birth of Christ at Christmas. No right for individuals to choose Bible-based Christian counseling and no devout justice on the Supreme Court.

The enemy wants to eradicate Christianity and faith in our nation. America is the only nation in the history of the world, other than Israel, to be founded on the Word of God. The fact is, Judeo-Christian values are the foundation of our free republic.

As John Adams famously said, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people." But the forces of evil want to "fundamentally transform" our constitutional republic, and the only way they can succeed is by sidelining and silencing Christians.

We must not let freedom slip away on our watch.

Dr. James Dobson #wingnut #fundie charismanews.com

I have read a new editorial published by Christianity Today that promotes impeachment of President Donald Trump. The editors didn't tell us who should take his place in the aftermath. Maybe the magazine would prefer a president who is passionately pro-abortion, anti-family, hostile to the military, dispassionate toward Israel, supports a socialist form of government, promotes confiscatory taxation, opposes school choice, favors men in women's sports and boys in girl's locker rooms, promotes the entire LGBTQ agenda, opposes parental rights, and distrusts evangelicals and anyone who is not politically correct. By the way, after Christianity Today has helped vacate the Oval Office, I hope they will tell us if their candidate to replace Mr. Trump will fight for religious liberty and the Bill of Rights? Give your readers a little more clarity on why President Trump should be turned out of office after being duly elected by 63 million voters? Is it really because he made a phone call that displeased you? There must be more to your argument than that. While Christianity Today is making its case for impeachment, I hope the editors will now tell us who they support for president among the Democrat field. That should tell us the rest of the story.

Dr Candice Smithyman #fundie #quack charismanews.com

On Saturday, April 4, at 4 a.m., I was abruptly awoken by God after an encounter with a strong demonic force that came into my bedroom and tried to put a sickness upon me on my chest. I cried out in my sleep three times as I rebuked this demon. I knew it had something to do with the coronavirus. The strange thing was that I went to bed with a communion cracker in my hand, which I never do, and I had been up praying for about three hours before I fell asleep and had this demonic encounter. I took the cracker before the attack.

The next morning my husband told me I had been rebuking demons because he heard me cry out in the night against them while I was in my sleep. This dream was not because I was receiving the coronavirus; it was a warning dream, to tell the people that this virus is a demonic force and there is a way to deal with it spiritually, as well as biologically.

You may have heard about hyper-grace extremists "tokin' the Ghost" (pretending to smoke the Holy Spirit) but this half-baked Bible study may take blasphemy to a mind-numbing level.

Dubbed "Stoner Jesus," the Colorado group invites "students of the Word" to inhale weed, ganja, marijuana, pot—or whatever the going slang for the depressant drug is these days—while they hash out what the Lord is trying to say through the Scripture.

Clearly, this is the fruit of Colorado legalizing recreational marijuana use. Deb Button, a 40-something mother of two, never dreamed of inhaling the THC until Colorado gave the nod. She tried an edible at the counsel of a friend while she was going through a divorce.

"I expected to see unicorns," Button said. "But when I started smoking I just got so connected to God."

Apparently hoping to share the revelation, Button turned to Craigslist to advertise the Stoner Jesus Bible Study. Cynthia Joye showed up to her house, only to find Button "so baked out of her head she forgot she'd invited me over."

JOIN JENNIFER ON FACEBOOK FOR SPIRITUAL COMMENTARY AND ENCOURAGEMENT. CLICK HERE.

Nevertheless, the group has added a diverse mix of faiths to its stoned-out-of-your-mind-Bible-study, including a Mormon, a Catholic, a Greek Orthodox believer, and an atheist who is there for reasons unknown. In one meeting, they studied the Beatitudes from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount and pondered what it meant to be "poor in spirit."

"When I'm stoned, I can't read fast, so I look at every word," said Joye. "Like, what does each one of those words mean? Who's 'poor'?"

This Stoners Jesus Bible study is standing on the word, but not the right word. Button is on a slippery slope, not to mention the example she's setting for her kids at a time when they are probably also struggling with the emotions that accompany divorce.

I started smoking marijuana when I was 15 years old—and it didn't take long for this gateway drug to open the door to many other immoral behaviors.

Smoking weed opened the door to under-aged drinking. We had fake IDs and a good friend at the local liquor store that got us anything we wanted any time we wanted. Smoking weed opened the door to frequent LSD use. Watching my friends take a few "bad trips" failed to scare me enough to stop dropping. Smoking weed opened the door to using ecstasy, which caused my best friend to go into violent convulsions at a party. Of course, that didn't stop me from trying it again and again.

Smoking weed opened the door to a short-term cocaine addiction. One drug dealer I knew ended up with a bullet in his head picking up his supply and another landed in the hospital with an overdose that almost killed him. Smoking weed opened the door to smoking crack with petty criminals in Key West that would end up on America's Most Wanted. Smoking weed opened the door to snorting and shooting heroin in a studio apartment in New York's Hell's Kitchen for a solid week until I was on the brink of addiction.

Yes, smoking weed opened the door to all that and more. It is only by God's grace that I survived—and did not end up struggling with lifelong addictions. It's only by God's grace and prayer and a determined will that I was set free from the demon of pharmakeia. That's why it grieves me to read stories like Button's. The enemy came in at a vulnerable time in her life—while she was in the midst of a divorce—to tempt her to take a legal drug to ease her pain. She could wind up addicted.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse writes, "Long-term marijuana use can lead to addiction; that is, people have difficulty controlling their drug use and cannot stop even though it interferes with many aspects of their lives. It is estimated that 9 percent of people who use marijuana will become dependent on it.

"According to the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, marijuana accounted for 4.5 million of the estimated 7.1 million Americans dependent on or abusing illicit drugs. In 2009, approximately 18 percent of people aged 12 and older entering drug abuse treatment programs reported marijuana as their primary drug of abuse; 61 percent of persons under 15 reported marijuana as their primary drug of abuse."

Whether you roll it in a joint, smoke it in a blunt, put it in a bong, a ceramic pipe or a crunched up soda can, bake it into brownies or mix it into tea, we should dread the ripple effect legalizing marijuana will have on our nation. Or better yet, we should take authority over the spirits that are working to usher this harmful drug into mainstream American culture.

We have authority in the name of Jesus. Yet we have not been faithful in enforcing the rule of God in this nation. We allowed prayer to be taken out of public schools. We allowed abortion to be legalized. We allowed same-sex marriage to become "normal." And now we are allowing the legalization of marijuana. God help us!

We need to rise up in the name of Jesus with the Word of God in our mouths and bind the assignment over the next generation of youth. Otherwise, we'll see this adopted in churches from coast to coast. Mark my words. This is just a sign of things to come. The good news is, it's not too late to turn this around. We won't win every soul for Jesus, but through intercession we can do plenty of damage to the kingdom of darkness and see an awakening in our land.

Ted Baehr #fundie charismanews.com

A Christian media watchdog group has launched a campaign against a new movie based on the book jesus of nazareth that depicts Jesus' birth as the result of the Virgin Mary being raped by a Roman soldier.

Paul Verhoeven, the Dutch director known for "RoboCop," "Show Girls," and "Basic Instinct" is slated to direct the film. Verhoeven is also a member of the Jesus Seminar, a group of laymen and scholars that question the truthfulness of the gospels and the miracles of Jesus.

"The liberal media's relentless persecution of the Christian faith shows yet again the double standard of bigotry. There's no way a similar movie would ever be made claiming Muhammad was the product of a rape," says Ted Baehr, founder of the Christian Film & Television Commission, which launched the campaign.

The movie depicts the life of Jesus, but unlike other Biblical epics jesus of nazareth shows Jesus performing no miracles, born as the result of rape, and when Jesus dies He does not come back from the grave.

Paul Verhoeven, the writer of jesus of nazareth is no stranger to offending Christians with statements intended to bully and browbeat: "In my opinion, Christianity is nothing more than one of many interpretations of reality, neither more nor less. Ideally, it would be nice to believe that there is a God somewhere out there, but it looks to me as if the whole Christian religion is a major symptom of schizophrenia in half the world's population: civilizations scrambling to rationalize their chaotic existence. Subsequently, Christianity has a tendency to look like magic or the occult."

Ex-Gay Reveals the Horrific Sexual Abuse That Marred His Identity

Kegan Wesley's testimony is one of the most powerful you'll hear. Now a popular speaker, he was once a scared child who was horrifically raped by multiple men—and his friends.

"I remember after, you know, the men were finished with me, I went outside and (I was) physically hurting, emotionally hurting, not knowing where to go or who to go to," Wesley recalls. "And if I went to somebody, what would I say?"

Thus Wesley embraced what he thought was his identity—that is, a member of the gay community.

But God wasn't about to let him get away.

Watch his incredible testimony.

JD Greear #fundie charismanews.com

Pastor: Preaching Against Homosexuality Akin to Preaching Against Slavery

Baptist pastor said at the denominations summit earlier this week.

The setting was the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty summit. The topic: preaching about homosexuality in the gay rights era.

Summit Church’s Pastor J.D. Greear certainly got the audience's attention when he started making comparisons between preaching against homosexuality in modern days to preaching against slavery in the 1800s.

With the hashtag #erlcsummit, RNS’s Sarah Pulliam Bailey quoted Greear on Twitter as saying, “Preaching against homosexuality is about as popular as preaching against slavery in South Carolina in the 1800s.”

Another tweeter, Ruth Graham (@publicroad) wrote, “@jdegreear compares preaching against homosexuality today to preaching against slavery in South Carolina in 1861."

So who is this brave pastor? Greear became the pastor of a church called Homestead Heights Baptist Church in 2002. According to his bio, he led a 40-year-old, plateaued church of 300 to re-launch itself with a new name and a new vision to reach its community and world with the gospel. Now, over 8,000 worshippers gather weekly, making The Summit Church one of Outreach magazine’s “top 25 fastest-growing churches in America” for several years running.

Bethany Blankley #fundie charismanews.com

By destroying the institution of marriage, the "gay rights" LBGQTI movement made possible the extension of similar "legal rights" for other "lifestyle choices," including zoophilia, consanguinamorous relationships, necrophilia, pedophilia, polygamy, and every other "fluid" sexual preference or identification—including sologamy and trans-polyamorous relationships.

Efforts to normalize sex with animals as an accepted lifestyle choice resulted in one documentary winning an award this year that idolizes a sexual relationship between a man and his bottlenose dolphin lover.

The 40-year movement to legalize sexual interaction with children is working. People are publicly advocating without shame: "I'm a pedophile, but not a monster;" and, "pedophilia is natural and normal for males."

Now, incest activists in the consanguinamorous community argue it's their turn to have their sexual preference and lifestyle choice validated socially and legally.

Because of a case in New Mexico that's making national headlines, incest activists argue exactly what homosexuals argued to normalize incest.

"I was born this way."

"I can't choose who I love."

"I have a right to be happy just like everyone else."

"We aren't hurting anyone."

"Who is the government to legislate love?"

Incest activists maintain that all sexual preferences and acts should be legal if they are consensual and don't harm anyone. More importantly, the government should not be legislating love.

Christina Shy, an incest activist who runs an advocacy and support website for consanguinamorous people, and is in a relationship with her half-brother, argues that incest "needs to be brought to the attention of everybody in the country and people need to start thinking differently. It was the same with gay people just a few years ago and now they can get married they are accepted. Well why not consanguinamorous people like us? We are all adults. We are not pedophiles, there's no domestic issue. We are in love, we want to be together, but we are related. That shouldn't be a deciding factor."

She's right—if sex is consensual among adults in the privacy of their own home—how is it wrong or even illegal?

How is consensual sex between two adult men different than consensual sex between adult brothers and sisters or adult mothers and sons? If two adult men can legally marry each other, why can't consensual adult incestuous couples?

Why should one consensual relationship be denied and another legal?

Incestuous adults aren't coercing anyone. They are knowingly making choices about their own bodies, so why does anyone have a problem with it? It's really none of anyone else's business.

If transgender people in America, who represent less than half of one percent of the population, can have the government dictate bathroom policies for non-transgender people in public schools and stores, why won't the government legalize consanguinamorous relationships?

Homosexuals, who represent less than 3 percent of the population in America, can legally marry and adopt children, why can't incestuous, polygamists, pedophiles and zoophiles?

If morality and laws are determined by personal preferences (that are fluid and always changing) to justify societal norms, why is a different standard being used to legislate incest, necrophilia or pedophilia than that of same-sex relationships?

Incestuous relationships are mutually consensual, therefore they should be legal. (The same reasoning can be applied to murder. Surely, if two people agree to murder someone, in fact a group of people consent to murder another group of people, their consent justifies their action, which should therefore legalize murder.)

The same goes for polygamy. And necrophilia.

Why is having sex with dead people wrong? The corpse doesn't care. It's dead. It doesn't hurt the corpse; it doesn't even know what's happening. Granted, it can't consent to the sexual act, but that doesn't matter because there are enough necrophiliacs to argue that their sexual preference is normal.

When it comes to not hurting anyone, incest activists argue that abortion is legal, so again, what standard is being used to legislate harm to another person?

They are right. If a baby has no constitutional rights, and adults do, why can't the adults, who aren't harming anyone else, be together?

Practicing homosexuality used to be illegal. Now gays can marry. Times have changed, so who has the audacity to suggest that incest is not the new normal of the 21st century family? Or bestiality?

"Non-human animals have incestuous relationships and multiple partners," some activists argue. Likewise, it's well-known that kings and queens had incestuous relationships for centuries to 'keep their bloodline pure.'

So, who is the government to legislate love? Everyone has the right to love whomever they choose. All love is equal. How is heterosexual love better than incestuous love or being in love with multiple partners?

As the defendant in the New Mexico case argues, as to why he should be allowed to love, have sex with and even marry his mother, he says: "This is about whether I have the right to love someone. And I sure (expletive) have the right to love Monica. You can't tell people who to love or who not to love."

His mother's name, Monica, could easily be "Matthew," the name of a brother, father, uncle or homosexual boyfriend.

No love is wrong.

Gay rights activists and corrupt politicians who chose to legalize same-sex marriage and transgender bathroom policies, have no justification to prevent the legalization other sexual behavior.

Maybe there is another take on what Jesus said, maybe He was talking about the "poor" in Spirit.
There a lot of Christians who don't put their whole trust in God, He is the One who will provide all our needs.

God doesn't have a problem with us having lots of money, in fact He even says, ask and you will receive. Why would anybody want to take a vow of poverty, when God has enough riches stored up for us all.

Mike W #fundie charismanews.com

You completely miss the point. Of course there will always be hypocrites who will attempt to bend and misuse the scriptures to justify their own position. We have exactly the same situation today where some people claim that God does not condemn homosexuality as a sin. These people are hypocrites. The Bible always condemned the type of slavery that was practiced in the U.S. and some other Western nations for a short while. E.g. Ex 21:16. This form of slavery was a product of Muslim doctrine and slavery practices that greedy people in the West took to their own and then tried to justify, exactly as people try to justify the immoral practices these days that denigrate and disrespect sexual fidelity. People will wake up long before fifty years are up because the lies regarding homosexuality that are promulgated these days are profound and slowly becoming more obvious to even the most ignorant.

Y’all aren’t even worthy of a response. Been through all that, been to dozens of funerals of occult victims, Counseled hundreds, and have seen more crime scene photos than anyone should have to see in a lifetime.

So sick of people hiding behind the ridiculous “it’s all satanic panic” bushwah Especially since none of them have seen any of it for real. Whatever helps you sleep at night I guess. Just stop talking like experts, you’re not.

(On an article regarding the movement to resist and impeach Donald trump.)

REV 19:He (Jesus) treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty....this is no longer speaking of his own blood, but the blood of his enemies....war is inevitable....then, peace will come....come (birds of the air), gather together for the great supper of God, that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals and the mighty, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, great and small. Solomon's kingdom would never have manifested if it wasn't for the preceding wars of King David, the father.

[Another person calls Alex out for inciting violence.]

I do not advocate violence but there is such a thing as righteous judgement "with justice he wages war". To say that God is only Mercy is wrong. The Lord The Lord God. A compassionate and merciful God. SLOW to anger and abounding in loving kindness and truth; who keeps loving kindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity and transgressions and sins. YET HE WILL BY NO MEANS LET THE GUILTY GO UNPUNISHED....God himself described who he is in these verses. He is not just the LAMB, but also THE LION OF JUDAH.

Pretty much everything God does, good or bad, he does thru human beings. I cringe when I hear the atrocities of ISIS, but I also believe that they might be in part God's judgement on a world which has shunned him.

[A different person calls Alex on his bloodthirsty BS.]

no one is advocating violence, false accuser and devil. Your pride and arrogance gives you no right to sit on God's throne to judge me or anyone else on this thread. I notice you shoot off your big mouth without addressing the scriptures I put before you in this thread. My point is that, although incredibly long-suffering and patient, God is not Mercy only. He is a righteous king (judge). And just like there is divine Mercy, there is also divine Judgement waiting for those evil-doers who refuse to repent, be washed in the blood and sanctified in the Word. God is not beheading ANYBODY, but his hand of protection can be removed in order that judgement take place.

[Person #2 doesn't back down, demands Alex admit he's advocating violence.]

Don't forget, I called you a devil too. I also said God is not beheading ANYBODY, as the devil (that would be you) falsely accuses me of. But why argue? Let God's Word speak for itself : AND WHEN THEY FORGOT THE LORD THEIR GOD, HE (GOD) SOLD THEM INTO THE LAND OF SISERA AND INTO THE HAND OF THE PHILISTINES AND INTO THE HAND OF MOAB, AND THEY FOUGHT AGAINST THEM. God also sold Israel to Assyria and Babylon for their unrepentence. When we forget God and mock him (as the vast majority of America and the entire world is doing today), when we pile up aborted babies by the tens of millions, when those who are called priests live homosexual lifestyles and abuse children in despicable manner (those would be the priests of the Catholic religion which you follow), when we call good bad and bad good (homosexual marriage), God's hand of protection is removed and we too will be judged and given into the hands of our enemies (ISIS).

[Person #2 and a third person remind Alex that god doesn't make ISIS behead people.]

And you need to learn about repentance and that we are called to such, even as we are washed in the blood of Jesus. Otherwise, you remain a child on milk, never having matured into righteousness. Or do you not know that evil doers will not enter the Kingdom of God? Get YOUR theology straight!
