Christians are in the process of surrendering America to a variety of non-Christian and anti-Christian world views.  This is changing America into something it never was and  was never intended to become.  

The purpose of this site is to highlight the symptoms, causes, and consequences of the decline of Christianity in America, chronicle the more significant ongoing lapses, failures and persecutions of Christians and their churches, and explore what is required to recover from this surrender.  This site is developed by a Christian who is appalled at the lack of Christian will and energy devoted to promoting traditional Biblical values in our nation by our churches and in-name-only Christians.  Most cannot even be called "cultural Christians" any more because they have jettisoned any semblance of "Christian culture" years ago.


Current Issues to Ponder:

Witnessing to Muslims: A reality check that most evangelists won't tell you...

There are numerous Christian-based articles and books written about witnessing to Muslims. Most treat Islam as if it is just another erroneous version of Christianity, like they would treat Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witness, or Christian Science. Big mistake.

Many evangelists stress the commonalities of Islam and Christianity as if they believe the same god, the same “Jesus”, the same Abraham and the same Old Testament. Another big mistake. Many focus on the love and forgiveness inherent in Christian doctrine. Many propose a form of “friendship evangelism” where the objective is to “friendship” the Muslim into liking and trusting you. “Give your personal testimony” and surprise and engage them into something they’ve never experienced before. Stress “forgiveness” because there is none in Islam.

Some of these suggestions may be helpful, some are totally off base. All of them are subject to the uniqueness of Islam that makes such witness especially challenging, maybe treacherous compared to witnessing to any other group of people.  Keep reading HERE.


My evolving views of Christian Churches and their practice of indifference...
The last church I was involved with for several months belonged to a conservative Lutheran denomination.  I thought it was "safe" because they taught strictly from the Bible.  The pastor was extremely personable and the folks in the congregation were pleasant, if not a bit on the aloof and reserved side of the personality spectrum.  The demographic was "elderly" and "upper middle class."

I was involved in a book study that attracted 4 out of a congregation of 200, Bible studies that rehashed ancient history with little relevance to today, and had conversations with many members who had zero interest in how Christianity interacted with the culture.  Their focus was inward - I call it "in-reach" versus "out-reach."  Food and socializing was the predominant focus. Sermons were rarely relevant to the challenges the church faces from the culture and government and instead painfully rehashed Bible stories that mature adults heard a thousand times.

I ultimately decided this was not the place for me.  This was just one more example for me of how even the most conservative Christian churches are in denial of their plight and coming persecution from the secular, anti-Christian forces arraying against them. 

Instead of being defiant and aggressive in the face of the coming storm, they remain placid and indifferent.  Their behavior is part of the long standing internal Christian battle between prayer and action.  How much should we invoke God's intervention compared to our own role in doing God's work within our culture? 

At least this conservative church didn't go along with the cultural decline that goes against millennia of morality with regard to the perversions of homosexuality and same sex marriage.  That was one consolation.  Their "don't offend anybody" attitude was not as pervasive as it has become in most mainline churches.

Unfortunately I chose a denomination that not only believes that the Church has no business trying to influence government, but even avoids prayer for God's intervention.  Baptists do a much better job of encouraging both prayer and individual action to influence our rapidly decaying culture. But even that denomination falls short of recognizing the challenges and dangers their churches are up against.

It is difficult to motivate or even find the support of congregations overwhelmingly comprised of people who are consumed by health issues, entertainment, technology and sports and who consider a Church more of a social connection than a deeply meaningful life-giving faith that is worth defending.
 

Preachers presume people accept concept of "sin."

Preachers preach as if people accept the idea of "sin." Most ignore the extent of cultural denial of the concept. Yet churches preach repentance from sin week after week without their audience accepting the reality of "sin." They may as well be speaking Martian to these people. To most of our culture, the idea of sin is foreign and rejected. Read more about this communication lapse HERE.

Why would a Catholic Bishop block the appearance of a Catholic defender against Islam from speaking before a Catholic men's group?  Weird but true.  Catholic doctrine has something to with it.  You see, Catholic doctrine that gives Muslims first place among the unsaved was plainly articulated via Vatican II in their constitution called Lumen Gentium.  Section 16 of that document calls for pandering to Muslims because they are "professing to hold the faith of Abraham, along with us adore the one and merciful God, who on the last day will judge mankind."  The same god, huh.  What is being smoked in the Vatican?  Therefore Muslims should not be insulted with embarrassing facts about their "religion."  The Bishop of Worchester, Mass. cited this Catholic doctrine in his rescission of the Islamic expert's appearance before the Catholic men's group.   Read more HERE.

Chick Fil A, Amorality, and Tolerance: The pretend tolerant Chicago left show their true colors by their intolerance of Chick Fil A and traditional moral values.  The "new" tolerance shows tolerance to be a higher value than morality.  Morality is NOT to be tolerated.  Read more HERE.

Communists and Muslims in the US endorse Barack Obama:  The Communist endorsement was made last year by the Communist Party USA. And to add insult to injury,  the great majority of Muslims in the US prefer Obama as well (no surpirse there, eh?)  These are facts we need to be reminded about - and remind others.  "So what?" you ask.  In the 20th century Communist revolutions and governments were responsible for killing over 90 million souls.  Muslims are in the process of committing over 100 acts of terror atrocities per month and have continued this pace over most of the last decade.


The Islamic influence in America isn't the only thing our churches are ignoring at their own peril.  The cultural and political shifts of church-goers and the electorate threaten not only our form of government but religious liberties as well.  And the church is silent, continuing to fiddle about tolerance and turning the other cheek while the other 80% of Christian teaching is being ignored and allowed to wither. 

Separation of Church and State?  Listen to the words of Ronald Reagan on this topic.

Many churches promote the WRONG priorities for our times in their teaching.  Most messages do not address the needs we face today.  Most of their teachings are akin to admonishing us to say "thank you" to someone in the process of igniting a can of gasoline in our midst.

Reform or Rebellion?

Whether a paradigm-shifting social action is "reform” or “rebellion” depends on what side you are on – the point of view of the participants.  

Reform sounds more civil. Rebellion sounds, well, rebellious.

 

The first Christian "reform"

We’ve had several mega-event “reform-rebellion” examples throughout history. The ministry of Jesus Christ was, in hindsight, a reform. Its objective was to reform the excessively legalistic attitudes of the Sadducees and Pharisees and their sympathizers by introducing what God intended all along: An attitude of grace and forgiveness for sinners. Some Jews accepted the concept, most did not. To those who accepted, it was reform. For those who rejected, Jesus represented rebellion against the law of the Jews.

 

The "Reformation":  Reform or Rebellion?

The Reformation is another example. Martin Luther and others who promoted reformation in the 1500’s intended to reform the Catholic Church, to force the Church to renounce its corrupt practices and return to the essentials of the faith. The reformation snowballed into a rebellion against the Catholic Church, and became the protestant revolution. Today protestants call it "reformation."  Catholics consider it a rebellion against the Church.


Rebellion against the Church

A couple of decades later, another mega-event occurred, this time in England. On the coattails of the Reformation, the Church of England separated from the Catholic Church. This was more of a rebellion than it was a reform in anyone’s book. The elite in England did not appreciate the Catholic Church dictating who could marry or divorce whom. So they jettisoned not just the doctrine of the limitations on marriage, but the entire Catholic Church and reverted to their separate and distinct Church of England.  The Episcopal Church in the United States has carried on the tradition of rebellion from Biblical morality and has become one of the more liberal, anything goes, Christian denominations in the world.  They continue the form of orthodox Christianity but have killed the substance.


Rebellion against the Nation

Was the US Civil War “reform” or “rebellion?” At the time, that depended on which side you were on. The South saw the north turning the screws on the slavery issue. They may have considered the North rebelling against the South's livelihood and economy. The North saw the south as rebelling against the authority and unity of the nation. Retrospective history labels the North as the reformers and the South as the rebels.

So what should we call the jettisoning of moral standards today? Are those who promote gay marriage, abortion, and legal protections of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender behaviors “reformers” or “rebels?”  What is next after this?  Promotion of child porn and molestation as "reform?"

 

Rebellion against God

If they are reformers, what are they reforming back to? What is the wayward behavior they are reforming? Traditional morality? Was there ever a time when overt lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender behaviors were the norm? No! They are reforming behaviors “back” to nothing that has ever existed before. The behaviors they are promoting have never been sanctioned by any religious system or legitimate national government. So no, it is not “reform.”

If they are rebels, what are they rebelling against? Traditional morality. Religious values. Their parents and grandparents. And God. They are rebelling against all things holy and sacred. This is every bit as much a “rebellion” as the Protestant “reformation” turned into, the creation of the Church of England turned into, and the rebellion that fomented the Civil War. Except instead of merely turning back several decades or several centuries of established social, religious, or political norms, this new cultural revolution is erasing multi-millenia of social and religious norms.

I am no prophet, but I would guess that this sort of rebellion against God will not stand. At least I pray not. I will be on God’s side on this one. The consequences of this rebellion will not be pretty.

Current examples of liberal Christian apostasy and dismissal of traditional Christian belief and practice:
 
Conservative denomination teaches about Islam without knowing anything about it.  And declares those who correct their ignorant, misleading statements are "uncharitable" or worse.  A case study.

The Pope wants Christians and Muslims to show "mutual respect."  Ignorance of Islam in action.  Yes, this is the same Pope who lamented "who am I to judge" when asked about gay Priests and Bishops in the Vatican. Unfortunately, even conservative Christian denominations have adopted a "tolerate everything" doctrine.  All "grace and mercy" and very little "truth and justice."

US churches have become "Poodles" to Islam.  They insist on remaining oblivious to the real Islam.  What has become of "defending the faith?"  Read Bill Warner's analysis HERE.

The Biden-Ryan debate illustrated a huge chasm between the integrity of Biden and Ryan.  See what I mean here:  The Fool vs. the Wise.
 
 
This is just one more indication of where Obama is coming from - where his heart is.  Obama loved every second of it or he wouldn’t have invited these gutter rats into the While House. Oh, the company he keeps. Lie with dogs and wake up with fleas. Those who act on their homosexual tendencies are just as vile as those who act on their desire to murder or rape. And Obama celebrates it. Anything for a few hundred thousand filthy votes.  Obama a Christian?  ROFLMAO.  This is like Joy Beyhar, the abortion proponent, claiming she is a Catholic.  And now Obama has ORDERED the military to celebrate Gay Pride Month.  Might as well ORDER them to celebrate "child porn month.'

When in your lifetime have you heard about zombies eating human faces?

Things are changing.  Our culture is in steep descent.  Ann Barnhardt has insight into this recent phenomenon from her website. And now "bath salts" have been ruled out of the cause of this bizarre face-chewing, which gives greater credence to Ann's assessment of the spiritual direction we are headed.  This is her take which should raise the hair on the back of the neck of any serious Christian:

I suspect many people out there are thinking this, but are too afraid to say it because they think that people will look down upon them as rednecks or stupid or unintelligent. Let me go out front as a person who doesn't give a crap what others think of me, and who is many things, but not stupid, and say it out loud to hopefully edify others to speak openly about it:

YES, THIS RECENT DEVELOPMENT OF NEAR-DAILY HIDEOUS, CANNIBALISTIC MURDERS AND UNFATHOMABLE SEX CRIMES IS A MANIFESTATION OF DEMONIC POSSESSION AND DEMONIC POWER RECLAIMING A FOOTHOLD IN FORMERLY CONSECRATED CHRISTIAN TERRITORY.

You're not imagining things. That's exactly what it is. People have been "bad tripping" on drugs for decades without turning into demonic animals and eating people's faces off of them alive. Just as satan is very, very real, so are demons. The demonic legions are reclaiming and reasserting power in the Americas and Europe because these physical landmasses have lost their consecration to Christ by their apostasy, blasphemy and child sacrifice. It is going to get worse. We are basically going to turn into what the musloid Middle East has been for 1400 years. Civilization is going to lose cohesion and people are going to start doing things that have absolutely no rational explanation: gratuitously gruesome murders and bodily desecration, and rape variants involving children, animals and corpses that normal people cannot comprehend.

The main gateways for demonic possession are drugs, pornography and homosexual/deviant sex. The cannibals have all been drug users. The Canadian cannibal was also a gay porn star. The British couple who raped their own infant children (on camera) are child and bestiality porn merchants. These incidents will increase in frequency exponentially as the collective apostasy of this culture has now reached the point that the "shedding of God's Grace" upon The Americas and Europe is now limited to individuals - and even then, God's grace for the remnant may be within the context of their persecution, imprisonment and martyrdom.

I guess the best advice I can give is when everything goes to hell and you feel despairing, remember that WE DESERVE THIS. What you are seeing is God's Justice, and an opportunity for you and others to draw closer to Him. And THANK HIM.


Public school textbooks promote Islam and slam Christianity

Beware of new public school textbooks on Social Studies, American History, and Government that portray Islam in a positive light, and are critical of or silent about Christianity  Read more about this pro-Islam bias in public schools HERE. HERE is a presentation made to a Florida school board complete with a 91 page document that provides examples of misleading and erroneous bias toward Islam.  Join those who monitor the school books used in your school district.  HERE is an editorial by a Muslim apologist who has infiltrated her way into the pro-Islam public stage.  Of course, she claims there is no bias in these textbooks.  More taqiyya.

America the Apostate
America is said to be built on Judeo-Christian principles. 
 
Basically we placed God’s values above equality (not every view is right, nor every lifestyle correct), religious legalism, or social conformity (consensus). Our law system especially, works off God’s laws as laid down in the Old Testament.
 
Today it is generally believed 75-80% of Americans identify themselves as Christians.
 
With these facts it must be concluded that America is going apostate. We have had legalised abortion since 1973. Since God knows each of us from the womb (and before really) we are in fact murdering a human being and doing so in our own self interest. More and more tolerance of the homosexual lifestyle is the norm. Even beyond tolerance, it is being forced on us. Firemen in San Diego recently were ordered to attend a Gay Pride Parade, Gay Marriage referendums(also allowed in MA) are being voted on, and CA is considering making children in public schools learn about it. Divorce is happening to 1 out of 2 marriages, AT LEAST. Injustice is rampant, a good example is Mary Winkler, a pastor’s wife who murdered her husband in cold blood, and is already free. Who do we idolize? Hollywood celebrities, many of whom have no morals and make movies that glorify violence, immorality, and their own selves. There are so many examples that I could not list them all probably.

All of this in spite of the fact that 75-80% of Americans identify themselves as christians.
 
Abortion has always been a sacrifice in the name of self interest. We kill the baby because we are not ready, it would be an inconvenience, we simply don’t want it. This is murder, and christians know it.

Homosexual behavior has always been defined as sin, and against God’s law. Since a marriage by biblical definition is a man and a woman 2 men or 2 women are obviously commiting fornication. You cannot explain homosexuality as natural it produces only death, it is a part of our sin nature. God loves everyone and so should we, but we do not need to love the sinful behavior of our homosexual neighbors.

No where is divorce encouraged in the bible, and in fact Jesus never allowed it. Divorce causes adultery when the person remarries, except when the person had already commited adultery. Either way, adultery occurs and never is there an endorsement to divorce. Jesus paid for all our sins with his very blood, having loved us so much and forgiving everything, we cannot forgive our spouse of a few things?

Where do we even begin with Hollywood? Almost no film is suitable for children, and really none are suitable for adults either. People follow and idolize Hollywood stars who get divorces, abuse drugs, have immoral sex, are violent, and a host of other sins. Most are not even christian in passing. People will argue for their good qualities, but really what purpose do these people serve in our society? Why do they get paid so much and are given so much attention? Most of them have ZERO talent! Then there are the movies and TV shows themselves, which take many immoral acts and funnel them into our minds. Ever find yourself humming a commerical jingle or using a line from a movie? It does influence your actions.

Our society does not in any serious way oppose any of this or a host of other problems in our country. This in spite of 75-80% identifying ourselves as Christians. With that sort of majority all these problems should be gone right? I suspect most of the so called christians have found ways to deny each of these problems. They shift blame or justify bad behavior/problems by pointing to other cases of outrageous behavior/problems. Others are only christian in name, many wanting respectability use the christian label when they are not. If only they knew christians are like any other person, sinners, they simply realize it and have faith in Jesus as the Savior.
 
We need Christian leaders to correctly define sin in our country(especially large scale ones) and mobilize christians to oppose them. Where are these leaders? Rick Warren, Joel Osteen and others have large followings, but they have not preached hard against any of this to my knowledge.
[These men are doing a grave disservice to Christianity in America by portraying Christianity as a benign, feel good religion.  They ignore many of the major doctrines of Scripture that are essential to the Christian faith because they may be "offensive" to some.  GM]

Our nation was founded on judeo-christian values, our population overwhelmingly identified as Christian, yet our culture is becoming saturated in easily identifiable sins. With our large christian population, we have no excuse being ignorant. America is apostate, and so is its christians. Who are we in rebellion against ultimately? God, and woe to us when his patience is exhausted and we are judged.
