Pope Francis Delivers Easter Mass – President Obama in Cuba and Argintina – Truth About Easter – The Truth About Origin of Christianity

 Story image for pope easter mass from The Inquisitr

Pope Francis preached an Easter
message of hope after a grim week in Europe, calling on Christians not
to let fear and pessimism “imprison” them.

Speaking amid tight
security at the Vatican, the Pope said: “Let us not allow darkness and
fear to distract us and control our hearts.”

His message followed a condemnation on Friday of the Brussels terror attacks.

Islamist violence is expected to be a prominent theme of his traditional “Urbi et Orbi” Easter message.

Many
pilgrims cancelled their planned trips to Rome in the wake of the
violence in Brussels, but St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican was packed
when Pope Francis celebrated mass on Saturday evening.

The Pontiff
entered a darkened basilica with just a single candle guiding him. As
he reached the altar, the basilica’s floodlights came on to symbolise
the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Delivering his homily, Francis said: “Today is the celebration of our hope. It is so necessary today.”continue reading

Obama lands in Cuba as first US president to visit in nearly 90 years

Barack Obama
descended on Cuba with a pomp unmatched by the Pope on Sunday, becoming
the first American president to visit Cuba in nearly a century, and the
first since a revolution led by Fidel Castro toppled a US-backed
strongman in 1959.

As he arrived, Obama used a Cuban phrase meaning “what’s up?” when he tweeted: “¿Que bolá Cuba? Just touched down here, looking forward to meeting and hearing directly from the Cuban people.”

“This is a historic visit,” Obama said as he greeted US Embassy staff
and their families at a Havana hotel. “It’s an historic opportunity to
engage with the Cuban people.”A giant American delegation, estimated at somewhere between 800 and
1,200, swept into Havana this weekend, intent on closing a final chapter
in cold war history and sealing the diplomatic legacy of Obama’s
presidency. Joined by first lady Michelle Obama and his two daughters, Obama toured
Old Havana by foot, walking gingerly on the slippery wet stones in front
of the Havana Cathedral. The downpour notwithstanding, a few hundred
people gathered in the square erupted in applause and shouted Obama’s
name as the first family stepped forward. . continue reading

Obama says US too slow to react to Argentina‘s “Dirty War”

BUENOS AIRES — President Obama Thursday visited a memorial in
Argentina to the thousands of people killed and disappeared during that
country’s “dirty war,” on the 40th anniversary of the coup that started
it.

Obama used his visit to announce his plan to declassify new military and intelligence records that document the human rights violations from 1976 to 1983.

“There’s
been controversy about the policies of the United States early in those
dark days,” Obama said, standing beside the Argentinian President Mauricio Macri.
“The United States when it reflects on what happened here has to
reflect on its own past…. When we’re slow to speak out on human
rights, which was the case here.”

Despite early U.S. support for the coup, Obama said U.S. diplomats,
human rights workers and reporters played an important role in
documenting the abuses that took place in the aftermath. He extolled the
likes of diplomat Tex Harris, who worked at the U.S. embassy in Buenos
Aires during the administration of then-President Jimmy Carter to
document human rights abuses and identify the disappeared. Such men did
so despite threats to themselves and their families, Obama said.http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2016/03/24/obama-speaks-us-role-argentinas-dirty-war/82206754/

 Truth About Easter

Reprint from: Truth on Easter

Each year in the springtime, the mainstream Christian world celebrates a
holiday called “Easter.” Many assume that this holiday originated with the
resurrection of Jesus Christ but as the information provided here will
demonstrate that this spring tradition of men is actually or an older and
far less ‘holy’ than one would imagine. The following quotes have been derived
from several valid and even scholarly sources. The purpose is to unveil the
truth about the origins of this spring ‘Christianized’ pagan holiday. When
you have read these though and discerned the truth it is our hope that you
will remain convicted and follow His lead – away from non-biblical holidays.
The crux of the matter is not so much the hidden meanings of the symbols
and story but one of how your heart is before your Creator. Do you decide
what days to observe or does God? The bible tells us that a little leaven
leavens the whole lump and with that seasonally-correct truth in mind …
Come, let us reason together.

The Origin and History of Easter

“The term ‘Easter’ is not of Christian origin. It is
another form of Astarte, one of the titles of the Chaldean goddess, the queen
of heaven. The festival of Pasch [Passover and the Feast of Unleavens] was
a continuation of the Jewish [that is, God’s] feast….from this Pasch the
pagan festival of ‘Easter’ was quite distinct and was introduced into the
apostate Western religion, as part of the attempt to adapt pagan festivals
to Christianity.”
(W.E. Vine, Merrill F. Unger, William White, Jr.,
Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, article:
Easter, p.192)

Ish·tar : Mythology The chief Babylonian and Assyrian goddess, associated
with love, fertility, and war, being the counterpart to the Phoenician Astarte.
(The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition.
2000)

Tammuz: ancient nature deity worshiped in Babylonia.
A god of agriculture and flocks, he personified the creative powers of spring.
He was loved by the fertility goddess Ishtar, who, according to one legend,
was so grief-stricken at his death that she contrived to enter the underworld
to get him back. According to another legend, she killed him and later restored
him to life. These legends and his festival, commemorating the yearly death
and rebirth of vegetation, corresponded to the festivals of the Phoenician
and Greek Adonis and of the Phrygian Attis. The Sumerian name of Tammuz was
Dumuzi. In the Bible his disappearance is mourned by the women of Jerusalem
(Ezek. 8.14)
.(The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001)

“There is no warrant in Scripture for the observance of Christmas and Easter
as holydays, rather the contrary…and such observance is contrary to the
principles of the Reformed faith, conducive to will-worship, and not in harmony
with the simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. ” (Morton H. Smith, How
is the Gold Become Dim, Jackson, Mississippi: Steering Committee for a Continuing
Presbyterian Church, etc., 1973, p.98)

“EASTER (AV Acts 12:4), An anachronistic mistranslation
of the Gk. pascha (RSV, NEB, “Passover”), in which the AV followed such earlier
versions as Tyndale and Coverdale. The Acts passage refers to the seven-day
Passover festival (including the Feast of Unleavened Bread). It is reasonably
certain that the NT contains no reference to a yearly celebration of the
resurrection of Christ.”
(International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia,
edited by Geoffrey Bromiley, Vol 2 of 4, p.6, article: Easter)

“The term Easter was derived from the Anglo-Saxon ‘Eostre,’ the name of the
goddess of spring. In her honor sacrifices were offered at the time of the
vernal equinox. By the 8th cent. the term came to be applied to the anniversary
of Christ’s resurrection.” (International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia, edited
by Geoffrey Bromiley, Vol 2 of 4, p.6, article: Easter)

Who Was Serapis Christ – Who Invented The Serapis Christ Cult

Ptolemy 1 Meryamun Setepenre (c.a. 367-283 B.C.E- Before Common Era)
(aka Soter) (“Soter” means savior) became the first European pharaoh of
Egypt through military force led by Alexander the Greek (a.k.a Alexander
the Great). When Ptolemy became pharaoh of Egypt, he wanted the
Egyptians to consecrate him as a god. He wanted to be called a god
because that was the title all of the pharaohs of Egypt were called
prior to him. However, the people of Egypt refused to call him a god
because they knew the only reason he became a pharaoh was through force,
so in “305 BC -Ptolemy took the title of Pharaoh, taking the Egyptian
name Meryamun Setepenre, which means “Beloved of Amun (Amun means God)
Chosen of Ra(Ra means God)”, and because of the Egyptians refusal to
acknowledge him as a God, he began killing the people of Egypt, which
caused the Egyptian priests at Memphis to give into his request by
agreeing to consecrate him to priesthood, in order to save their own
lives.


The key words in the above passage to keep in mind during your
reading: Meryamun, Setepenre, Soter, which are words that were used to
create the fictitious character of JESUS CHRIST in AD by Roman Emperor
Constantine (Meryamun, Setepenre, Soter were used in B.C).
The images of Ptolemy below, which are similar to the images that are
depicted as “Jesus” today, were forced upon the Africans and were
ordered to be worshipped by the people of Rome.

Serapis Christus Greco Roman c.a 135 B.C.E. The marble image in the
London museum is the image they use of Christ (Jesus) today. Christus
was also the nickname for Serapis.


What is Serapis? (Origin of JESUS CHRIST)

Ptolemy’s rule was to create a deity that would be worshipped by both
the Egyptians and the Greeks. He created “Serapis “, the made up
Graeco-Egyptian god that was invented in the 3rd century B.C., portrayed
as Greek in appearance, but with Egyptian accessories, representing
both wealth and resurrection.

 

 “Egypt, which you commended to me my dearest Servianus, I have found
to be wholly fickle and inconsistent and continually wafted about by
every breath of fame. The worshippers of Serapis here are called
Christians and those who are devoted to the god Serapis (I find) call
themselves Bishops of Christ. Hadrian to Servianus 134 AD.” 

Constantine and Arius
Constantine the Greek (a.k.a Constantine the Great) Roman Emperor
from 306 to 337, is known for being the first Roman emperor to be
converted to Christianity which strangely enough, Arius of Libya
(256-356 AD) born of African descent centuries after Ptolemy 1, had a
problem with the Roman empire teaching the Africans and the people of
Rome to worship a statue and celebrating death. He was considered a
heretic, a professed believer (of God), who maintains religious opinions
contrary to those accepted by his or her church (what the religious
authorities usually controlled by government deem as the truth). Because
he started attracting so many followers due to his teachings that were
contrary to the Romans, Constantine called the council by summoning all
the bishops to discredit Arius, The Council of Nicaea. During the time
when this meeting was called upon, there was no mention of Jesus Christ
at all; no man had ever existed by the name JESUS Christ, and an
important fact is that this all took place Anno Domino (AD) (which
Christians claim means after the death of Christ) but in Latin means ‘in
the year of the lord’. The name Jesus Christ didn’t exist before the
meeting was called (read the statements made during that timeframe). It
was only after this that they presented to the people the name JESUS
CHRIST.


What Lord are they referring to? 

Kings have always been referred to as Lords or gods.

If Jesus Christ didn’t exist during the time this meeting took place
nor ever heard of whom are people worshipping today? Serapis Christus?

Prominent African-American Southern Baptist Condemns

 Prominent African-American Southern Baptist Condemns Mormonism as Racist | Brian Kaylor, Dwight McKissic, Mitt Romney, SBC, Mormonism

ethicsdaily.com/prominent-african-american-southern-baptist-conde…

 A prominent African-American Southern Baptist pastor hopes messengers at next week’s annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention will pass a
resolution condemning Mormonism as racist.
The move by Dwight McKissic, a pastor in Arlington, Texas, comes as some Southern Baptist leaders attempt to rally support for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, whose Mormonism makes some conservative evangelicals weary. McKissic posted the full text of his proposed resolution, which he sent to the SBC’s Resolution Committee for consideration, earlier this
month on his blog. However, McKissic’s resolution on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints could spark the most controversy as it places him at odds with claims made by other Southern Baptist leaders in the midst of a heated presidential campaign.
In the resolution, McKissic claims “growing awareness, acceptance and influence [of Mormonism] in  contemporary American culture” will lead
“some to study or accept the Mormon Religion as valid.” Thus, he urges Southern Baptists to speak out on the racial problems of the faith.
In addition to critiquing the Mormon adoption of authoritative books other than “the King James Holy Bible,” McKissic’s resolution claims that while “in 1978, the Mormon Church has denied and denounced racism
and agreed to permit Blacks to the priesthood, they are yet to denounce the racist teachings.”
McKissic ends his resolution by having Southern Baptists declare that
“we repudiate the racist teachings recorded in The Book of Mormon and The Pearl of Great Price.

“This issue must be dealt with if Southern Baptists are to be consistent with what they have historically taught about Mormonism;”
McKissic wrote, “and if they are to be viewed by Black Baptists as simply finding Mitt Romney’s Mormonism and the racist views of his Bible more tolerable than President Obama’s skin color; this is how this
discussion is being played out in Black barber shops, Black beauty
salons and Black churches. If Southern Baptists support this resolution,it will say to the Black Community that they find Mitt Romney’s
Mormonism and the racist views of his Bible abhorrent; but if they vote for him, it will be strictly because of philosophical and policy issues
and positions, and not a vote against President Obama’s complexion.”

Introducing The 55 Wives Of Brigham Young

Brigham Young Wives

Brigham Young, Joseph Smith’s successor as president of the Church of  Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and prophet to Mitt Romney, had a tremendous number of wives, 55 total.

Joseph Smith instructed Young that plural marriage was a divine  commandment that would bring a select number of righteous men tremendous  blessings for eternity.

The sheer variety of Brigham Young’s marriages makes it difficult to  make sense of them. He married — was sealed to, in Mormon parlance —  young (Clarissa Decker, 15) and old (Hannah Tapfield King, 65). He  married single women and widows. Perhaps most unusually, he was sealed  to his first two mothers-in-law. Perhaps most controversially, he married women who were already married, some to Mormon men in good standing.

Is Mormonism a cult?

by Matt Slick

Yes, Mormonism is a cultMormonism, also called The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS),  is not considered to be Christian by Christians.  In fact, Mormonism teaches the following non Christian, non biblical doctrines.  (Note that all the documentation is taken from Mormon writers and Mormon scriptures.)

  • God used to be a man on another planet, (Mormon Doctrine, p. 321; Joseph Smith, Times and Seasons, vol. 5, p. 613-614; Orson Pratt, Journal of Discourses, vol. 2, p. 345; Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, vol. 7, p. 333).
  • God resides near a star called Kolob, (Pearl of Great Price, p. 34-35; Mormon Doctrine, p. 428).
  • “The Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s…” (Doctrines and Covenants 130:22).
  • God is in the form of a man, (Joseph Smith, Journal of Discourses, vol. 6, p. 3).
  • “God  himself was once as we are now, and is an exalted man, and sits  enthroned in yonder heavens!!! . . . We have imagined that God was God  from all eternity. I will refute that idea and take away the veil, so  that you may see,” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 345).
  • After you become a good Mormon, you have the potential of becoming a god, (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 345-347, 354.)
  • There is a mother god, (Articles of Faith, by James Talmage, p. 443).
  • God is married to his goddess wife and has spirit children, (Mormon Doctrine, p. 516).
  •   The trinity is three separate Gods: The Father, the Son, and the Holy  Ghost. “That these three are separate individuals, physically distinct  from each other, is demonstrated by the accepted records of divine  dealings with man,” (Articles of Faith, by James Talmage, p. 35.).

In contrast to these teachings, Christianity the Bible teaches that God has always been God and was never a man (Psalm 90:2).   The Bible no where says he lives near another star or that the Father  has a body of flesh and bones — which Christ contradicted in John 4:24 and Luke 24:39.  We do not have the potential of becoming gods because there are no gods formed (Isaiah 43:10; 44:6,8; 45:5).  The Trinity is one God (Deut. 6:4), not three.

There are numerous books written about Mormonism from a biblical perspective, exposing its false teachings.

Of  course, we do not hate the Mormons and we pray for their repentance  from believing in false gods.  But, Mormonism is not Christian.

Southern Baptist Convention warns Christians about  teachings of Mormonism

Apapepress

February 15, 2007

By Allie Martin

Rob Bowman with the North American  Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) says Christians need to  be aware that the beliefs of the Mormon Church are inconsistent with biblical  Christianity. As one Mormon candidate launches his White House bid, the Southern  Baptist official is urging Christians to take advantage of materials his  denomination offers that teach the truth about Mormonism.

As former  Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney officially announced his presidential  candidacy this week, a cover story in USA Today looked at the beliefs of the  Mormon Church, formally known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day  Saints.

Rob Bowman,  manager of the apologetics and interfaith evangelism department of the SBC’s  North American Mission Board (NAMB), thinks Christians would be wise to take an  even closer look at the Mormons, lest any be deceived about the nature and  tenets of that religious group. He says although the Mormon Church wages an  expensive public relations campaign, using terms familiar to appeal to  evangelicals, the core teachings of the church do not line up with scripture and  are inconsistent with evangelical Christianity.

For this  reason, Bowman says the SBC has for decades offered, through its various  entities, information resources focusing on the Mormon Church. Many of these  resources detail the differences between Christian and Mormon beliefs — of which  there are many, the NAMB official observes.

For example,  Bowman notes, “In 15 short years, [Mormon Church founder] Joseph Smith went from  being a thoroughgoing monotheist, a believer in one god, to a thoroughgoing  polytheist, teaching the existence of many gods.” Also, he points out, the  Latter-day Saints teach that humans can achieve godhood by joining the church  and taking part in specific deeds and ceremonies.

Such  divergent beliefs are among the reasons, the NAMB official asserts, why  Christians must know the Bible, so as not to be fooled by non-biblical Mormon  teachings. As for the Mormon Church members themselves, he adds, “Our concern is  that they don’t really know the God of the Bible. So we’re concerned for their  salvation.”

The concern  of Bible-believing Christians is that Mormons do not know the real Jesus of  scripture, Bowman explains. The SBC’s desire, he says, is not only to see  evangelicals learn about the differences between Mormonism and Christianity but  also to see Mormons come to know Jesus and have an authentic relationship with  Him.

Evangelical  Theologian: Bottom Line is Mormons are not Christians

Michelle Vu

Christian Post  Reporter

July 27 2007

Mormons  believe in a false gospel and are not Christians, concluded one of the nation’s  preeminent evangelicals in what appeared to be the close of an online debate  over Mormonism.

“Here  is the bottom line. As an Evangelical Christian – a Christian who holds to the  ‘traditional Christian orthodoxy’ of the Church – I do not believe that  Mormonism leads to salvation,” wrote Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president of  Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, on Wednesday evening.

“To the  contrary, I believe that it is a false gospel that, however sincere and kind its  adherents may be, leads to eternal death rather than to eternal life,” he  stated.

Mohler’s response is part of an ongoing “blog dialogue” sponsored by the Web  site Beliefnet.com. Since June 28, the evangelical scholar and prominent Mormon  science-fiction writer Orson Scott Card have been debating whether Mormons can  be considered Christians.

During  the course of the debate, Card focused on whether Mormons are moral people, good  citizens and why Mormon presidential candidate Mitt Romney should be supported  by evangelicals. He emphasized that Mormons share many of the same values as  evangelical Christians and believe Jesus Christ is the only path to salvation.

However, Mohler noted that whether a Mormon has similar moral values to  evangelical Christians is beside the point because Beliefnet.com had asked  whether Mormons can be considered Christians based on traditional Christian  orthodoxy.

“It  appears that we are not really discussing the same question,” noted Mohler in  his latest blog response.

“The  debate has never been about whether Mormons are good Americans or would make  good neighbors,” he wrote.

“I dare  say that most American Evangelicals and traditional Roman Catholics would find  more in common with Mormons in terms of child-rearing, sexual morality, the  protection of marriage and family, and a host of other issues, than they would  with liberal Catholics or liberal Protestants,” acknowledged Mohler.

But  Mormonism from its beginning has rejected traditional Christian orthodoxy, which  is part of the core Mormon identity, pointed out the highly-respected  theologian. The subtitle of The Book of Mormon is “Another Testament of Jesus  Christ.”

“A  ‘testament,’ that is, other than that accepted by the historic Christian  churches,” Mohler highlighted.

Mohler  – who is often seen on “Larry King Live” and other popular news show  representing the Christian voice – concluded that Mormonism is not just another  form of Christianity and is incompatible with “traditional Christian orthodoxy.”

Mormon  defender Card readily agrees with Mohler that Mormons do not fit into the  Christian category as defined by traditional Christian orthodoxy. However, he  argues that Mormons should be considered “nontraditional Christians.”

“Despite our deep differences of belief over the nature of God and his plans for  his children, we recognize that those who believe in the other Christian faiths  have taken a giant step closer to fulfilling the intentions of our Lord,” wrote  Card on Thursday. “They are, in heart and mind, Christians.”

He  further added, “We ask only the same favor in return. Let’s take that word  ‘traditional’ and make use of it. Instead of saying that we are ‘not  Christian’…let us agree that Mormons are ‘nontraditional Christians.’”

Card  looked back on Christian history when Protestant Christian denominations were  not accepted as part of the traditional church according to the Catholic  viewpoint, and was even condemned guilty of heresy.

He  concluded: “Call us ‘nontraditional Christians’ and continue to encourage your  communicants not to believe our doctrines. We’ll happily continue to call you  ‘traditional Christians’ and teach people why they should believe our  doctrines.”The Mormon defender ended by calling for unity in a world where Christians are  persecuted and expressed appreciation that Dr. Mohler affirmed that Mormons  should be equally considered for American public offices regardless of  theological difference.

Mormonism started in 1830 with 24-year-old  year old Joseph Smith Jr. According to Smith, he had several experiences, during  which God, Jesus, and the angel Moroni gave him instructions. Part of the  instructions was to dig up some gold plates buried by the angel Moroni around  A.D. 400 on a hill just outside of Smith’s town of Palmyra, New York. Smith dug  up the plates, claimed they were written in “Reformed Egyptian,” and that God  had given him the ability to translate them. This translation became known as  the Book of Mormon, an account of the ancient inhabitants of North America  between 600 B.C. and A.D. 400.

Mormons have four sources of authority: the  Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Pearl of Great Price, and Doctrine and Covenants.  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has become one of the  fastest-growing religions in the world. The church owns Brigham Young  University.

Mormon beliefs are fundamentally different  from biblical Christianity.

1. God. Once a human as we are now, and  progressed to become God. He is one of many gods.

2. Man. Has the ability to progress and  become a god just as Jehovah did.

3. Marriage. Polygamy is no longer advocated,  although it once was encouraged.

4. Jesus. The son of God, but not part of the  Godhead. Mormons do not believe in the Trinity.

Mormons are very sincere about their faith.  Conversations with Mormon missionaries promise to be cordial. Mormon scholars,  such as those at Brigham Young University, are well aware of the challenges  which face Mormonism.

What do Mormons tell you when they visit?

When Mormons visit you, they usually will not  focus on the doctrines previously mentioned. In fact, they probably will not  even bring them up during the first few meetings. Instead they will seek to find  common ground with you on many of the doctrines Christians believe. For example,  they may begin by saying that God revealed the Old Testament through Moses and  the prophets. Then Jesus came, was crucified and resurrected. His disciples  wrote books and letters that became the New Testament. We all agree on these  facts.

Then the differences begin. They will tell  you that before Jesus’ ascension into heaven, He appeared to the inhabitants of  North America and gave them the gospel as well. His message and the history of  these inhabitants from 600 B.C. to A.D. 400 are recorded in the Book of Mormon.

Furthermore, they will tell you that since  the apostles were not replaced when they were killed, the Church went into  apostasy. In other words, it abandoned the true faith, and consequently, a  restoration was necessary. Mormons believe that God chose Joseph Smith to bring  that restoration; therefore, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is  the true Church.

How to answer Mormons

Mormons are well equipped to answer many of  the issues Christians bring to their attention and have answers adequate to  silence the average critic. The Mormon missionaries who come to your door are  cordial and will listen to what you have to say. Enjoy the opportunity to share  your faith with them, but be prepared by having good answers. Although there are  many issues, which you may bring to the Mormons’ attention, focus on four that  are of primary importance:

A. The Bible is reliable. Mormons claim that  the Bible has been corrupted over the years as evidenced by the many different  translations. How do we know that the Bible we have today is the same as it was  2,000 years ago? The original words of the Bible have been preserved with  remarkable purity and that its accuracy has been confirmed by both history and  archaeology. Variances among English translations do not call into question the  preservation of the Bible over the years. Until you have shown this to a Mormon,  it is useless to point out that some Mormon doctrines differ from the Bible.  They will only respond that the Bible is unreliable.

B. There is no archaeological confirmation of  the Book of Mormon. While the spade of the archaeologist has confirmed many  places and peoples mentioned in the Bible, it has not been at all favorable to  the Book of Mormon. Although Mormons will confidently assert that archaeology  has confirmed the Book of Mormon’s accuracy time and time again, professional  archaeologists have arrived at quite a different conclusion.

C. The Book of Abraham is a fraud. The Book  of Abraham is one of the books in the Pearl of Great Price, one of Mormonism’s  scriptures. Joseph Smith purchased some ancient Egyptian papyri and claimed it  was an original book penned by Abraham himself while in Egypt. He translated it  allegedly by the same gift, which God had given him to translate the Book of  Mormon. Professional Egyptologists have translated the papyri since their  rediscovery in 1967. Their translations bear no resemblance to Smith’s  translation, exposing him as a charlatan.

D. Evidence for Mormonism? Mormons are  convinced that Mormonism is true because the inward testimony of God tells them  so. If you are going to be effective when talking to Mormons, it is crucial that  you address this issue. Otherwise, no amount of solid evidence, which testifies  against Mormonism, will be of help to them.

Romney’s LDS  faith makes him a ‘cult’ member, Texas pastor says

By Peggy Fletcher Stack
The Salt Lake Tribune

09/26/2008

   WASHINGTON –  Evangelicals who believe the country needs a Christian in the White House but  promoted Mitt Romney’s candidacy during the Republican primaries were  hypocrites, according to a Texas pastor.

    Romney, a Mormon, is  not a Christian, the Rev. Robert Jeffress said, but a member of a “cult.”

    “I believe we should  always support a Christian over a non-Christian,” Jeffress, pastor of First  Baptist Church of Dallas, told a packed audience of journalists at last  weekend’s Religion Newswriters Association (RNA) annual meeting. “The value of  electing a Christian goes beyond public policies. . . . Christians are uniquely  favored by God, [while] Mormons, Hindus and Muslims worship a false god. The  eternal consequences outweigh political ones. It is worse to legitimize a faith  that would lead people to a separation from God.”

    Jeffress made his  remarks during a luncheon debate with Jay Sekulow, chief counsel for the  American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), a law firm and educational  organization that focuses on religious-liberty issues. The DeMoss Group, a  Christian public-relations firm in Duluth, Ga., sponsored the event.

    Sekulow, who also  disagrees with Mormon theology but supported Romney’s candidacy, argued he would  rather have a president who promoted a conservative political agenda than one  who shared his doctrinal positions. 

“Jimmy Carter ran as a  born-again Christian,” Sekulow reasoned, “but his presidency did nothing for the  issues I care about.”

    Mark DeMoss, the  company’s president, opened the session by describing his decision to lead  Romney’s outreach to conservative Christians. DeMoss said he had come to admire  Romney, despite their theological differences, but was amazed at the vehement  opposition to the Mormon’s candidacy among Evangelicals.

    “When making the  choice of candidate for president, I don’t care how different the person’s  theology is from mine, just like I don’t care about my doctor’s theology or the  guy’s who built my house or the architect’s,” DeMoss said in an interview this  week. “I’m challenging people who would oppose a Mormon because he’s a Mormon,  but I’m also challenging people who would instantly embrace a Southern Baptist  because he’s a Southern Baptist. Both conclusions are bad.”

    DeMoss said he  doesn’t mind when people come to different conclusions about which candidate to  support, but hopes as least “they’re thinking.”

    The lively debate  seemed to prove his point.

    “It was one of the  more spirited lunch discussions we’ve ever had at RNA,” said RNA president Kevin  Eckstrom, who noted that the journalist organization did not organize the event.  “A lot of people were uncomfortable with what Dr. Jeffress said about Mormons,  but what we were hoping for was something provocative that would get people  talking, and certainly this did it.”

    Many reporters said  they had never heard the word “cult,” which Jeffress repeatedly called the LDS  Church, used so “freely and recklessly,” said Eckstrom, editor of Religion News  Service in Washington, D.C. But Jeffress used the same word to describe  “Catholics, Hindus, Buddhists and virtually everyone else.”

    It was useful for  reporters to be aware of such strident views, Eckstrom said, because they are  “completely mainstream in a lot of evangelical quarters.”

    First Baptist of  Dallas “is not a backwater pulpit somewhere. It is a major church in Texas and  in Southern Baptist circles,” Eckstrom said. “It’s a huge institution and a lot  of followers. He’s not just spouting these opinions for himself but proud of the  fact that he was going back to his congregation and declare every other religion  was wrong, and at least 10,000 people hear this position every week.”

    The Church of Jesus  Christ of Latter-day Saints insists that it is a Christian faith, though not a  traditional brand of Christianity. LDS officials today declined to comment on  Jeffress’ statements until they see a transcript of the remarks, spokeswoman Kim  Farah said.

What the Book of Mormon say about Race

  1. 1 Nephi 11:13 (Mary) “. . . she was exceedingly fair and white.”
  2. 1 Nephi 12:23 (Prophecy of Lamanites after Christ) “. . . became a  dark, and loathsome, and a filthy people, full of idleness and all  manner of abominations.”
  3. 1 Nephi 13:15 (Gentiles) “. . . they were white, and exceedingly  fair and beautiful, like unto my people [Nephites] before they were  slain.”
  4. 2 Nephi 5:21 “. . . a sore  cursing . . . as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome,  that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a  skin of blackness to come upon them.”
  5. 2 Nephi 30:6 (Prophecy to Lamanites) “. . . scales of darkness shall  begin to fall . . . they shall be a white and delightsome people.”  (Changed to pure and delightsome in 1981)
  6. Jacob 3:5 (Lamanites cursed) “. . .whom ye hate because of their  filthiness and the cursing which hath come upon their skins. . .”
  7. Jacob 3:8-9 “. . .their skins will be whiter than yours . . . revile  no more against them because of the darkness of their skins . . .”
  8. Alma 3:6 “. . . skins of the Lamanites were dark, according to the  mark which was set upon their fathers, which was a curse upon them  because of their transgression and their rebellion. . .”
  9. Alma 3:8 (Cursed) “. . .that their seed might be distinguished from  the seed of their brethren . . .that they might not mix . . .”
  10. Alma 3:9 “. . . whosoever did mingle his seed with that of the Lamanites did bring the same curse upon his seed.”
  11. Alma 3:14 (Lamanites cursed) “. . . set a mark on them that they and their seed may be separated from thee and thy seed. . .”
  12. Alma 3:19 (Amlicites cursed) “. . . brought upon themselves the curse …”
  13. Alma 23:18 “. . . [Lamanites] did open a correspondence with them [Nephites] and the curse of God did no more follow them.”
  14. 3 Nephi 2:14-16 “. . . Lamanites who had united with the Nephites  were numbered among the Nephites; And their curse was taken from them,  and their skin became white like unto the Nephites . . . became  exceedingly fair . . .”
  15. 3 Nephi 19:25, 30 (Disciples) “. . . they were as white as the  countenance and also the garments of Jesus; and behold the whiteness  thereof did exceed all the whiteness . . . nothing upon earth so white  as the whiteness thereof . . . they were white, even as Jesus.”
  16. Mormon 5:15 (Prophecy about Lamanites) “. . .shall become a dark, a  filthy, and a loathsome people, beyond the description of that which  ever hath been amongst us . . .”
  17. Mormon 5:17 “They were once a delightsome people . . .”

Mitt Romney, being a priest and a high ranking bishop must believe that these racist scriptures in the Book of Mormon are true.  In order to be a bishop or a Mormon you must believe in the Book of Mormon. It stands to reason that Mitt Romney is Racist or else he would renounce Joseph Smith teachings and the Book of Mormon.

White Blood Mixed with Negro Blood Brings Death on the Spot

Journal of Discourses 10:110-111;“Shall  I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white  man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of  Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will  always be so.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, March 8, 1863

Romans 8:1; “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”

Brigham Young the Second Prophet said this:

“You see some classes of the human family that are black, uncouth,  uncomely, disagreeable and low in their habits, wild, and seemingly  deprived of nearly all the blessings of the intelligence that is  generally bestowed upon mankind….Cain slew his brother.  Cain might  have been killed, and that would have put a termination to that line of  human beings.  This was not to be, and the Lord put a  mark upon him,  which is the flat nose and black skin.” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 7,  p. 290).
“In our first settlement in Missouri, it was said by our enemies that we  intended to tamper with the slaves, not that we had any idea of the  kind, for such a thing never entered our minds. We knew that the  children of Ham were to be the “servant of servants,” and no power under  heaven could hinder it, so long as the Lord would permit them to welter  under the curse and those were known to be our religious views  concerning them.” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 2, p. 172).
“Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the  white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed  of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This  will always be so.” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 10, p. 110).

How could any person of color embrace Mormonism? It is a blatantly racist religion and Lawrence O’Donnell lets loose about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlQEtksXJRI&feature=related

If Mormons believe in an all knowing and infallible God, how do they  reconcile teaching polygamy and black inferiority as a religious truth  — as an edict their prophets received direct  from the mouth of God but  then after 1978 it’s no longer a religious truth.  If Mormons believe  in God that ought to tell them that these men posing as prophets are not  prophets but ordinary men, making up stuff, attributing it to God, in  order to get you to believe it’s true.

The truth doesn’t change.  If was God’s truth as transmitted through  Mormon prophets pre-1978 how did it become an untruth after 1978?  I’ll  tell you how — it was never truth in the first place and it was not of  God in the first place (it was of man).  I submit Mormonism is a made up  proposition brought to us by a couple of men calling themselves  prophets/latter day saints.

Mitt Romney, Lies and The Mormon Church 2/3

Reprint by Nomad  http://nomadicpolitics.blogspot.com/2012/07/mitt-romney-lies-and-mormon-church-23.html

In Part One,  we traced the strange origins of the Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith and  asked if the entire religion was a hoax perpetrated on 19th century  victims. Let’s begin part two with what would seem at first glance to be  a question with an obvious answer.

Is lying aceptable to the present-Day Mormon Church?

This is perhaps a more  essential question since, no matter how it may have begun, the true  value of any religion lies in what it has become and what it teaches its  followers. And as far I can tell, no religion officially accepts the practice of lying. (Even Satanists are probably supposed to be truthful to one another, I’d imagine.)

The strongest criticism of the Mormon Church comes, not from other religions, atheists or outsiders, but from ex-Mormons. Former ex-high priest Park Romney, the cousin of the presidential candidate,  has been quite open about this subject. He told BBC,

“There’s  compelling evidence that the Mormon Church leaders knowingly and  willfully misrepresent the historical truth of their origins and of the  Church for the purpose of deceiving their members into a state of mind  that renders them exploitable.”

What that precise evidence was is not mentioned. Outside of the history  of the formation of the religion, there are other things that Church  leaders would prefer not to reveal.

Former Mormon missionaries have reported that the statements they made in order to convert others were extremely misleading. The alleged practice is called Lying for the Lord, which is summed up best in this way.

For the  Mormon, loyalty and the welfare of the church are more important than  the principle of honesty, and plausible denials and deception by  omission are warranted by an opportunity to have the Mormon organization  seen in the best possible light. .. “Lying for the lord” is part of  Mormonism’s larger deceptive mainstreaming tactics, and conversion  numbers would drastically lower if important Mormon beliefs were fully  disclosed to investigators.

Naturally the whole idea of Lying for the Lord is disputed by the elders of the Church. It simply doesn’t  exist, they say, and if missionaries misrepresent the religion is  merely because they are a bit too eager or they are not fully versed.  Perhaps, that’s true.

However, Loren Franck, a full-time Mormon missionary from 1975 to 1977, freely admits that she lied for the church regularly.  Some of the lies she listed were simply a matter of doctrinal  differences between the traditional Christian Church and the Mormon  faith. Others were more serious misrepresentations of the faith.

For decades,  the Mormon Church has tried to blend with mainstream Christianity.  Accordingly, during my mission a quarter-century ago, I worked hard to  convince prospects that Mormons believe in the biblical Jesus.

(As we shall see, her statement  conflicts with what Mormon president Gordon B. Hinckley stated  categorically- that the Mormon idea of Jesus was unique and unlike the  traditional view held by most Christians. He implied that true  enlightenment can only come through Joseph Smith and not through the Bible.)

All of this dances around the real question. What is it about the Mormon faith that missionaries feel that they must conceal?

The Principle of Eternal Progression

One staggering fact that Franck mentions that missionaries hide from potential converts is the doctrine that people can become gods. And conversely, God was once a man. Not only that, God was born on a planet called Kolob or at least He has a throne in the neighborhood. (h/t to Nathan.) At least that’s according to the Pearl of Great Price, an early collection of church-recognized doctrines, produced by Smith. It is considered part of the canon of Mormonism.

Regarding  the God-man relationship, modern Church leaders tend to dissemble about  this particular point but this Mormon tenet was taught by all of the  early fathers. The book, Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith explains:

After you become a good Mormon, you have the potential of becoming a god.

The  fifth LDS President Lorenzo Snow in 1840 reportedly said,  

“As man is, God once was. As God is, man may become.”

Orson Hyde, a leader in the early Latter Day Saint movement and an original member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, sketched this unusual image of God:

“Remember  that God, our heavenly Father, was perhaps once a child, and mortal like  we ourselves, and rose step by step in the scale of progress, in the  school of advancement; has moved forward and overcome, until He has  arrived at the point where He now is.” Franck said, as a missionary, it  was understandably not discussed with potential converts.

Given  its explosive nature, this tenet was rarely shared with prospective  converts. Missionaries try to entice people into Mormonism gradually,  and presenting the doctrine of plural gods -and the Lord as a bit too  human- is seldom the best way. Several contacts learned the concept from  their pastors or read about it on their own, but it was new to most  prospects. For most traditional Christians, the concept of God and Man  being only a matter of degrees in progression is certainly blasphemous.

Most Christians would reflexively reject the notion with a shudder.

Attitudes towards Christianity

Many people who know a little about Mormonism know that, unlike traditional Christian faiths, members  of this faith do not use the symbol of the cross. There are many  reasons given for this. But the usual one is that they prefer to  concentrate on the birth and resurrection of Christ rather than his  death on the cross.
Of all the symbols of Christianity, the cross is the most identifiable. In fact, there are many more important differences between the Christian faith and Mormonism.

Despite  the current public relations campaign  Mormons have long been taught  that their religion is superior to all other religions, including  Christianity. 
As one source explains:

Mormons  teach that the church fell into darkness shortly after Christ’s  ascension and was only restored through the person and actions of Joseph  Smith, some eighteen hundred years later. The only true Christians in  this view are Mormons.

Mormon’s 15th president Gordon B.Hinckley, as reported in LDS Church News in 1998,  stated that the Christ he believed in is not the same Christ as the one followed by those outside the LDS Church.

“For the  Christ of whom I speak has been revealed in this, the Dispensation of  the Fulness [sic] of Times. He, together with His Father, appeared to  the boy Joseph Smith in the year 1820, and when Joseph left the grove  that day, he knew more of the nature of God than all the learned ministers of the gospel of the ages”

For  Hinckley, Smith’s divine visions allowed him access to a a higher  truth. The phrase “the learned ministers of the gospel of the ages”  could be interpreted as the disciplines of Christ, Paul, Matthew, Luke  and the others.  In that case, the statement would be very controversial  indeed. The whole New Testament would be called into question.
In  any event, the differences between Christian and Mormon faiths are  routinely glossed over by missionaries. Yet the truth is that Mormon  Church considers Christianity (as we know it ) as a corrupted religion.

As one source explains:

Early Mormon  leaders were quite candid about the differences between LDS doctrine  and Christian doctrine. One example is the 1820 First Vision account  Hinckley cited which is also recorded in LDS Scripture. In relating this  vision, Mormon Church founder, Joseph Smith, makes a similar point to  Hinckley’s. Smith said that Jesus told him that all of the creeds of  existing Christianity were “an abomination in his sight.” These  Christian creeds would, of course, include those that describe the  essential attributes and identity of the Jesus worshipped by traditional  Christians.

The third president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, John Taylor, in Journal of Discourses, states:

“There is  not nation now that acknowledges that hand of God; there is not a king,  potentate, nor ruler that acknowledges his jurisdiction. We talk about  Christianity, but it is a perfect pack of nonsense. Men talk  about civilization; but I do not want to say much about that, for I have  seen enough of it. Myself and hundreds of the Elders around me have  seen its pomp, parade, and glory; and what is it? It is a sounding brass  and a tinkling symbol; it is as corrupt as hell; and the Devil could not invent a better engine to spread his work that the Christianity of the nineteenth century.”

Another early leader who offered similar opinions was Orson Pratt. Pratt was an original member of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles, a part of the church hierarchy organized by the movement’s founder. He expressed his undisguised dread of the Christian religion in this statement.

“This class  of men, calling themselves Christian, uniting with the various forms of  the pagan religion, adopting many of their ceremonies and institutions,  became very popular, and finally some of the pagans embraced  Christianity and were placed, as it were, upon the throne, and what they  termed Christianity became very popular indeed. How long has this order  of things existed, this dreadful apostacy, this class of people that  pronounced themselves Zion, or Christians, without any of the  characteristics of Zion? It has existed for some sixteen or seventeen  centuries.”

This  is naturally something that missionaries do not openly reveal. Despite  the recent assertions to the contrary, Mormons do not consider  themselves to be another Christian sect, like say Lutherans, or  Methodists. It is, according to the Encyclopedia of Mormonism, the only  form of Christianity and all others are inferior.

“The Church  of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not see itself as one  Christian denomination among many, but rather as God’s latter-day  restoration of the fullness of Christian faith and practice…Other forms  of Christianity…are viewed as incomplete…

This  way of thinking is paralleled by followers of Islam who revere (but not  worship) Moses, Abraham and Jesus, even Mary. islam added Mohammed as  the prophet of their faith and the Mormons added Joseph Smith as their  prophet.
The twelfth president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1973 until his death in 1985, Spencer Woolley Kimball wrote in his book, Miracle of Forgiveness:

“One of  the most fallacious doctrines originated by Satan and propounded by man  is that man is saved alone by the grace of God; that belief in Jesus  Christ alone is all that is needed for salvation.”

How  this can possibly square with Christianity is difficult to comprehend.  No other denomination of Christianity could ever make such a statement.  The Nicene Creed which established the perimeters of the Christian faith in the year 325 states as a Christian oath:

And [I  believe] in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Only-begotten,  begotten of the Father before all worlds, light of light, very God of  very God, begotten not made, of one essence with the Father, by whom all  things were made: Who for us men and for our salvation came down from  heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and  became man. . . .

As  Minister Anselm Kyongsuk,  in the book Dialectic of Salvation: Issues in Theology of Liberation, points out:

“At the  heart of Christian faith is the reality and hope of salvation in Jesus  Christ. Christian faith is faith in the God of salvation revealed in  Jesus of Nazareth.

It is not an exaggeration then to say that the Mormon religion is essentially un-Christian.

While  he does not speak for the Mormon Church, one Mormon, David V. Mason, an  associate professor of theater at Rhodes College, frankly admitted this  fact. In an op-ed piece published in The New York Times, Mason declares:

“I’m  perfectly happy not being a Christian…I want to be on record about  this. I’m about as genuine a Mormon as you’ll find – a templegoer with a  Utah pedigree and an administrative position in a congregation of the  Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am also emphatically not a  Christian.”

He also questioned why anybody would wish to be a Christian.

“Being a  Christian so often involves such boorish and mean-spirited behavior that  I marvel that any of my Mormon colleagues are so eager to join the  fold.

Missionaries and Church  leaders would like traditional Christians to believe that the difference  between the religions are superficial. However, a Mormon is no more  Christian than any follower of Abrahamic line, like Judaism or Islam. 

Attitudes about Race

If a reason for missionaries to be less than frank is their realization that the Book of Mormon contains many things that a Christian could not accept, there are also things in the book that a non-Christian or secularist outsider would also reject.

One  particular example is the early church’s racist teaching. The passage  from the Mormon holy book appears to explain the reason why some people  are black:

2 Nephi  5:21; “And he had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore  cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their  hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore,  as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they  might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of  blackness to come upon them.”

Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 7, p. 290, 1859, supports this racist view in clear terms.

“You see  some classes of the human family that are black, uncouth, uncomely,  disagreeable and low in their habits, wild, and seemingly deprived of  nearly all of the blessings of the intelligence that is generally  bestowed upon mankind.

Young connected the mark of Cain as the color of the black skin.

The first  man that committed the odious crime of killing one of his brethren will  be cursed the longest of any one of the children of Adam. Cain slew his  brother. Cain might have been killed, and that would have put a  termination to that line of human beings. This was not to be, and the Lord put a mark upon him, which is the flat nose and black skin.  Trace mankind down to after the flood, and then another curse is  pronounced upon the same race — that they should be the “servants of  servants;” and they will be, until that curse is removed; and the  Abolitionists cannot help it, nor in the least alter that decree.”

According  to this discourse by the leader of the Mormon church and successor to  Smith, slavery of the Negro was God’s decree, a divine punishment. This  was not the only racist remark made by Young. Here’s another quote made  in 1863:

“Shall I  tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man  who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain,  the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will  always be so.”

But as it turned out,  And as late as 1978, men of African descent were banned from its  priesthood by the LDS church. This priestly position was open to nearly  all Mormon males and the gateway to sacramental and leadership roles.  Additionally the LDS church had also barred black men and women from  temple ceremonies that promised access in the afterlife to the highest  heaven. Why? Because people of African descent were denied access to  heaven, at least until 1978. (It must have been quite a shock for all  people in Mormon heaven. They had been promised an exclusive paradise,  after all.)

In  light of just these points of religious principles, it is no wonder  that Mormon missionaries are taught to use deception when speaking to  outsiders about their religion. Imagine trying to explain the racist  bans to a black Christian.
Here’s an interesting video which appears to show a missionary training seminar conducted by Latter-day Saint author and speaker Bob Millet. The topic is how to answer difficult questions.
So to answer the or
ginal: Is lying acceptable in the Mormon faith?
The  answer is like so many answers. No… and Yes. No, not officially. But  yes. It is permissible- for a higher good, like conversion- to leave out  information that may present a challenge to explain, to spin the truth  somewhat, to shape it. Aside from the missionary work, are there any  other examples of this? Yes, I could find one other but it is a major  oneAnd So It Came to Pass (or did it?)

In the opening of this post, I quoted Gordon  B.Hinckley who stated in 1998, the founder Joseph Smith’s vision  allowed him to see Jesus with greater clarity than all of the previous  Christian ministers.
However, apparently the Church leadership has in recent years begun  to question those visions and, in an apparent attempt to mainline their  religion into traditional Christian faiths, the leaders have been  scratching out the more controversial aspects of Smith’s (and Young’s)  spiritual views. 

Here are a list of the revisions to the Mormon study guide, Gospel Principles. It’s interesting to see what has been added and removed.

Astoundingly,  many of the unique teachings of the LDS Church have been excised. It’s  like cutting off the unicorn’s horn for the sake of a pony. For example,  there’s this revision.

All good things come from God. Everything that He does is to help His children become like Him—a god.

Additionally all mention of Heavenly parents have been changed to Heavenly Father. In chapter 3 of the manual:

By following His teachings, we can return to live with him and our heavenly parents   Father inherit a place in the celestial kingdom. He was chosen to be  our Savior when we all attended the great council with our heavenly parents  Father. When he became our Savior, He did His part to help us return to  our heavenly home. It is now up to each of us to do our part and become  worthy of exaltation.

Why?  Because up until recently, all Mormons believed (as they were told)  that God was married. Now the Lord is bachelor, it appears. A divorcee  or perhaps a widower? God knows.

The  problem is, of course, that it will take a lot of revisions and those  aspects are deeply woven into the fibre of the faith. All of the early  Church leaders made definitive statements and all of those now must be  rewritten or deleted.

And  this, in turn, calls into question the whole idea of divine revelation.  Were Joseph Smith and Brigham Young divinely inspired or were they  wrong? It can’t be both. After all, can divine revelations actually be  revised by later generations for the sake of making the religion more  widely acceptable? Isn’t that sacrilege? How can this be explained?  And  where does it stop? The revisions are not even claiming to be divinely  inspired so how can they trump the visions and writings of the original  founder and the early church leaders?

It  also begs the question whether all those who came before and believed  the “wrong” things have found salvation. How can the faith of then and  the faith of now ever be reconciled?

And,  for Mormons, it is only fair to ask, after all of the revisions are  completed (if ever), what will be left of the faith? How will it be any  different than any other Christian denomination, like Presbyterians, for  example? How can the LDS leadership expect blind devotion when the  principles of the faith can be change every season?

In George Orwell’s  book, Nineteen-Eighty Four,  the ruling autocratic government did very much the same thing. One day,  everything you thought was true and unshakable, was suddenly dismantled  by  the Ministry of Truth  and its opposite was put in its place. There’s was no outcry because it  was all automatically accepted as “the new truth.” (Of course, it was  never “new” in any sense. It was actually the replaced, revised truth  and the old truth, once replaced, now no longer existed. Not only was  the truth replaced but the history of that truth was also added.)
All  past mention of the former information was deleted from the official  (and sole) record. Truth is what the leadership dictated it to be and  there is nothing in the world that can possibly contradict their  version. As Orwell writes:

If the Party  could thrust its hand into the past and say of this or that event, it  never happened — that, surely, was more terrifying than mere torture and  death?

The idea is basically that if you can erase all evidence of the past, you can create a new past, cleaned and trouble-free.

So far the Mormon church has been able to get away with this tactic without much outrage by the congregation. The same strategy has not been a very successful for candidate Mitt Romney. 

____________________________________

In the final post in this series, for the sake of argument, we ignore all of the evidence to the contrary and agree that the Church does not  condone lying. However, if we are prepared to believe this, we are  faced then with the challenging problem of Mormon Bishop Mitt Romney’s  conduct in the 2012 campaign and the sound of silence from Mormon  leadership.

How J. P. Fancher of Berryville, Ark., Has Kept Track of the Surviving Children in His State, Missouri and Texas,  Working for Government Aid Seeking to Bring About a Reunion — Formation and Departure of the Emigrant Train —  Hostility of the Mormons — Arrival at Mountain Meadows — The Massacre, as Told in the Confession of Bishop Lee  of the Mormon Church — Servitude of Children Spared From the Slaughter — Their Rescue and Return to Arkansas.
This is the story of the greatest tragedy connected with the history of the State of Arkansas — the Mountain Meadows  massacre — and of the strange afventures, rescue and after life of the few survivors of the great tragedy, the children  of Arkansas parents.

The latest effort in the direction of bringing about a reunion of these survivors of the Mountain Meadows massacre.  Should this prove practicable, one of the most picturesque and pathetic spectacles possible would then be presented.

Some point in the State of Arkansas will be chosen for the reunion, if it is found that the survivors of the Mountain  Meadows massacre can again be brought together. It would be the first time they have met in a body since that day, many  years ago, when, rescued from the Mormons and brought back to their native State, they were received by old neighbors,  friends and kinfolk as though coming back from the dead.


For more than a quarter of a century one man in Carroll County, Arkansas, has watched over the firtunes of these  survivors of a historic tragedy with almost a fatherly interest. That man is James Polk Fancher, and the objects of  his persistent care are the little remnant of that train of emigrants who escaped the bloody fate of their parents and  friends at the Mountain Meadow massacre in the southern part of the Territory of Utah nearly forty years ago. The  nephew of the brave commander of the train, and related to many other victims of the unparalleled butchery of more than  100 defenseless men, women and children, Mr. Fancher, the present County Clerk of Carroll County, has had good reason  to exercise a kindly guardianship over that now scattered and diminished band of orphans whose infant eyes beheld one  of the most terrific spectacles of inhumanity ever perpetuated in any land.

“Polk” Fancher, as everybody in Carroll County calls the Berryville attorney and official, has never lost any of his  zeal for the seventeen boys and girls spared by the Mormons and their Indian allies on that bloody day in September,  1857, when the Arkansas emigrants “surrendered” to John D. Lee and his trecherous associates after a week of fighting  accompanied by horrors that to-day make the minds of thousands of people shudder when the Mountain Meadow massacre is  mentioned. It was more than twenty-five years ago when Polk Fancher began to urge the claims of the survivors for  Congressional aid. He thought the national Government should assume some parental care over the few persons who lost  the dearest interests of life and every heritage of material wealth in that awful destruction of the train of emigrants.  Many other prominent citizens of Nirthwest Arkansas have hoped that Congress would take some action in favor of the  Mountain Meadow survivors.


It’s  not surprising that Mormons howl in protest–screaming “SACRED!” at the  top of their latter-day lungs–when honest efforts are made to examine  the history of their secret, violence-laden Mormon temple oaths and  rituals.

One of the more notorious ones in this regard was the  infamous “Oath of Vengeance,” which Mormons swore against the United  States government.

Into the first two decades of the 20th  century, faithful, temple-attending Mormons, secretly took this Oath of  Vengeance. The U.S. Senate considered it a serious enough threat to  convene hearings on this Mormon temple vow and other matters related to  the LDS church.

Below are some pertinent historical details  regarding this Oath of Vengeance that Mormons are not inclined to talk  about in openly:

“Following Joseph Smith’s martyrdom [actually,  Smith, armed with a pistol, was shot to death in a jailhouse gunfight  after being place behind bars for ordering the destruction of a  newspaper press], Brigham Young [Smith’s successor] introduced an oath  in the [Mormon temple] endowment which required members [of the church]  to swear vengeance ‘upon this nation.’ It became the subject of a United  States Senate investigation.

“Reed Smoot was a Mormon Apostle  who had been elected a Senator from Utah. In 1903 a protest was filed in  the United States Senate to have [the] Hon. Smoot removed from office,  on the grounds that he had taken this treasonous oath in the endowment  ritual.

“The

complete  record of this episode was published in ‘U.S. Senate Document 486 (59th  Congress, 1st Session) Proceedings Before the Committee on Privileges  and Elections of the United States Senate in the Matter of the Protests  Against the Right of Hon. Reed Smoot, a Senator from the State of Utah,  to hold his Seat,’ 4 vols.[+1 vol. index] (Washington: Government  Printing Office, 1906).”

When  questioned about it under oath during U.S. Senate hearings, Smoot  refused to divulge this secret Mormon temple Oath of Vengeance. (for a  “New York Times” account of Smoot’s cover-up in this regard, see: “Smoot  Would Not Tell of Endowment Secrets,” in “New York Times,” 23 January  1905, at: http://1857massacre.com/MMM/PDF/Smoot_01-23-1905_NYTimes.pdf ; and “Oath of Vengeance,” at: http://1857massacre.com/MMM/oath_of_vengeance.htm😉
This secret Mormon temple ritual’s multi-generational Oath of Vengeance against the U.S. government was worded as follows:

“You and each of you do covenant and promise that you will pray and never cease

to pray to  Almighty God to avenge the blood of the prophets upon this nation, and  that you will teach the same to your children and to your children’s  children unto the third and fourth generation.”(“Oath of Vengeance,” at: http://www.lds-mormon.com/veilworker/oathvenge.shtml)
With  word leaking out of its existence, the Mormon church eventually removed  this Oath of Vengeance was from its secret temple rituals.

Below  is an overall history of this vow of vengeance and retribution against  their own government, as temple-attending Mormons promised to obey it:

“One  of the oaths which was formerly taken in the temple ritual was the  source of so much trouble that the Mormon leaders finally removed it  entirely from the ceremony. This oath was printed in ‘Temple Mormonism,’  pa. 21, as follows: ‘You and each of you do solemnly promise and vow  that you will pray, and never cease to pray,  and never cease to importune high heaven to avenge the blood of the  prophets on this nation, and that you will teach this to your children  and your children’s children unto the third and fourth generation.’\

“A  great deal of testimony has been given concerning this oath, and  although all of the witnesses did not agree as to its exact wording,  there can be little doubt that such an oath was administered to the  Mormon people after Joseph Smith’s death. John D. Lee related that the  following occurred after Joseph Smith’s death:

“’ . . . Brigham  raised his hand and said, ‘I swear by the eternal Heavens that I have  unsheathed my sword, and I will never return it until the blood of the  Prophet Joseph and Hyrum, and those who were slain in Missouri, is  avenged. This whole nation is guilty of shedding their blood, by  assenting to the deed, and holding its peace.’ .. . . Furthermore, every  one who had passed through their endowments, in the Temple, were placed  under the most sacred obligations to avenge the blood of the Prophet,  whenever an opportunity offered, and to teach their children to do the  same, thus making the entire Mormon people sworn and avowed enemies of  the American nation (‘The Confessions of John D. Lee,’ p. 160).

“Some  Mormon apologists have maintained that there was no ‘Oath of Vengeance’  in the temple ceremony, but the ‘Daily Journal of Abraham H. Cannon’  makes it very plain that there was such an oath. Under the date of  December 6, 1889, Apostle Cannon recorded the following in his diary:

“’About  4:30 p.m. this meeting adjourned and was followed by a meeting of  Presidents Woodruff, Cannon and Smith and Bros. Lyman and Grant. . . .  In speaking of the recent examination before Judge Anderson Father said  that he understood when he had his endowments in Nauvoo that he took an  oath against the murderers of the Prophet Joseph as well as other  prophets, and if he had ever met any of those who had taken a hand in  that massacre he would undoubtedly have attempted to avenge the blood of  the martyrs.’ (‘Daily Journal of Abraham H. Cannon,’ December 6, 1889,  pp. 205-06).

“Apostle Cannon went on to relate that [eventual  Mormon church president] Joseph F. Smith was about to murder a man with  his pocket knife if he even expressed approval of Joseph Smith’s death.

“The  Oath of Vengeance probably had a great deal to do with the massacre at  Mountain Meadows, in which about 120 men, women, and children were  killed, and other murders which were committed in early Utah (see  ‘Mormonism—Shadow or Reality?’ pp. 493-515, 545-59).

“Just after  the turn of the century the Mormon leaders found themselves in serious  trouble because of the oath of vengeance. They were questioned at great  length concerning this oath in the ‘Reed Smoot Case.’ The Oath of  Vengeance remained in the temple ceremony, however, even after the ‘Reed  Smoot Case’ was printed . . . . It must have been removed sometime  between then and 1937, because in a lecture delivered on February 28,  1937, Francis M. Darter complained that ‘The Law and prayer of  Retribution, or divine judgment, against those who persecute the Saints,  has been entirely removed from Temple services. . . . The reason why it  was taken out, says one Apostle, was because it was offensive to the  young people.’ (‘Celestial Marriage,’ p. 60).

“. . . [T]he oaths  taken in the temple were originally very crude. . . . [O]ne example here  [From the Smoot hearings]—i.e., the testimony of J. H. Wallis, Sr., who  had been through the temple about 20 times:

“MR. WALLIS: ‘ . . . [A]nother vow was what we used to call the “oath of vengeance.’ . . .

“MR. TAYLER: ‘Stand up, if it will help you, and give us the words, if you can.’

“MR.  WALLIS (standing up): ‘That you and each of you do promise and vow that  you will never cease to importune high heaven to avenge the blood of  the prophets upon the nations of the earth or the inhabitants of the  earth.’ (‘The Reed Smoot Case,’ vol. 2, pp. 77-79).

“The next day Mr. Wallis corrected his testimony concerning the oath of vengeance:

“MR.  WALLIS: ‘In repeating the obligation of vengeance I find I made a  mistake; I was wrong. It should have been ‘upon this nation.’ I had it  ‘upon the inhabitants of the earth.’ It was a mistake on my part.  (ibid., pp. 148-49).

(“Temple Work,” at: http://www.utlm.org/onlinebooks/changech22b.htm#532)
Rest assured, you will not hear Mitt Romney speaking publicly about any of this.

I’ve often tried to make your point about the oath, but they look at me stupidly. King James Bible Online

The Luciferian Rapture Doctrine and Its Diabolical Zionists/Jesuits Connection – Its Secrets and Worldwide Influence

The rapture theory is not Biblical and was founded as an Anti-Reformation tool of the Catholic Church.

The word rapture comes from the Latin word rapio which mean – to steal, take by force, plunder, snatch, and rape. Jerome mis translated the word he translated the Vulgate from Greek.  Rapio and  harpazo have totally different meanings.

The purpose of the rapture theory was to destroy the reformation or control protestantism, recapture the Holy Land and establish the New Word Order and the One world government.

Barbara Rossing said in her book The Rapture Racket,

” the Rapture is a fraud of monumental proportions, as well as a disturbing way to instill fear in people.

“Whether prescribing a violent script for Israel or survivalism in the United States, this theology distorts God’s vision for the world,” Rossing writes. “In place of healing, the Rapture proclaims escape. In place of Jesus’s blessing of peacemaking, the Rapture voyeuristically glorifies violence and war …. This theology is not biblical. We are not Raptured off the earth, nor is God.

Where did the rapture theory originate and why?

Reformers such as Luther, Calvin, Huss, Zwingli, Melanchthon, Bullinger and others had identified the Catholic Church as Mystery Babylon in Revelation and the Popes as the Anti-Christ. Millions of sincere Catholics were leaving the mother church and joining the reformation movement.. The church set out to neutralize and destroy the protestant movement.. What they could not do through brute force and the military inquisitions they did through political espionage, spiritual intrigue, and using mind control techniques by secret societies. Most of the books published on the rapture are brainwashing the readers mind. All of the books written by Tim Lahaye’s, John Hagee’s, Jack van Impe, Jerry Jenkins , John Walvoord and movies such as the Omega Code and Megiddo are design for mind control. This anti-protestant doctrine is taught in many universities and seminaries such as Dallas Theological Seminary, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Southwestern Assemblies of God, Zion Bible College, Moody Bible Institute, Global University, Liberty and Regent University and well as a host of other leading colleges and universities The rapture cult has the largest following than any cult in the US or Europe.

Why were sincere Catholics, priests and monks leaving the Catholic Church.?

People were leaving because of corruptions in the church. If one look at the Babylonian sun worship, and the present Roman Catholic Mass there are many similarities. Baal worship seem to have taken over the Catholic Church. The icon of the virgin mother and child with halos (representing the sun), Mary as the queen of heaven, (Isis – queen of heaven) confessionals, wafer worship, transubstantiation, and priests as exclusive mediators of God were all derived from the Satanic Babylonian religion. Roman Catholicism became a mixture of witchcraft, Judaism, paganism, and perverted Christianity. When this corruptions was exposed by the reformers, Rome was outraged, and staged Holy Inquisitions, design to rid the world of heretics. The Inquisition included torturing and murdering people who didn’t not agree with the Catholic views. Ten of thousands of people were killed and some historians even put the numbers in the millions. Later, in response to the Vatican’s oppressive dogma, Martin Luther, a former Augustinian monk, nailed his 95 theses to the wall of a church in Germany, heralding Protestantism. . The Vatican was shaken as Protestantism spreads rapidly through Europe. In order to stamp out the spiritual rebellion, Pope Paul III ordered Ignatius de Loyola to found the Order of Jesuits, which would act as the intelligentsia and secret militia of the Vatican. Loyola had already founded the occult Illuminati, which he then placed under the umbrella of the Vatican ” Ignatius a Merovingian Jew from Loyola Spain was a member of the Alumbrados before he founded the Illuminati and the Jesuits. The Merovingian Jews claim to be decedents of Jesus and Mary of Magdalene. Thus you have books and movies like DaVinci Code, Prieure de Sion, Passover Plot, Holy Blood Holy Grail, Bloodline of the Holy Grail, being produced and circulated by Hollywood Kabbalist movie studios and publishing houses controlled by the Illuminati. These books are blasphemous teachings design to nullify the true Gospel of Jesus. Many of the Popes, Cardinals, Bishops and Priest were Merovingian Jews whose agenda was to destroy true Christianity and pervert the true gospel.

The Jesuits Oath:

“I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants’ heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus.”It was when Pope Paul III convened the Council of Trent that the church formally addressed the protestant reformation with edicts, dogmas and doctrines. A disciple of Ignatius, Francisco Ribera came up with a theory that would take the attention off the Pope as being the Anti-Christ and put it on some future individual. This was the beginning of the Rapture doctrine. The Jesuits infiltrated the protestant movement, developed protestant theology, and purposely mis interpreted scriptures relating to Bible prophecy. They also controlled the educational system and bribe and blackmailed governments of Europe and America to promote their agenda. Two other groups that were instrumental the origin and development of the rapture theory were the Knights Templars (Masons) and the Knights of Malta (Knights of Columbus).

Barbara Aho said in her article (The Merovingian Dynasty) “it was also the The avowed objective of the Templars was to protect the Christians who came to visit the Holy Places: their secret objective was the re-building of the Temple of Solomon on the model prophesied by Ezekiel.
“This re-building, formally predicted by the Judaizing Mystics of the earlier ages, had become the secret dream of the Patriarchs of the Orient. The Temple of Solomon, re-built and consecrated to the Catholic worship would become, in effect, the Metropolis of the Universe.”

Protestant churches that have stop protesting, Evangelical seminaries have stop teaching truth, religious broadcaster, TV evangelists, religious writers, teachers, and preachers who promote the rapture have been seduced by Jesuits theology and manipulated by the kabbalist practitioners, thus they are part of the world-wide Anti-protestant, anti-reformation, and Anti-Christ conspiracy.

The Thirteenth Tribe:

Arthur Koestler documents the Caucasian ancestry of Ashkenazim Jews. TheThirteenthTribe. The Khazar Empire and its Heritage. Arthur Koestler. Mr. Koestler speculates about the ultimate faith of the Khazars and their impact on the racial composition and social heritage of modern Jewry. He produces a large body of meticulously detailed research in support of a theory that sounds all the more convincing for the restraint with which it is advanced. Yet should this theory be confirmed, the term “anti-Semitism” would become void of meaning, since, as Mr. Koestler writes, it is based “on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims. The story of the Khazar Empire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated.

The vast majority of Jews in the world is of Eastern European – and thus perhaps mainly of Khazar – origin. If so, this would mean that their ancestors came not from the Jordan but from the Volga, not from Canaan but from the Caucasus, once believed to be the cradle of the Aryan race; and that genetically they are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Should this turn out to be the case, then the term “anti-Semitism” would become void of meaning, based on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims. Maybe the two world wars and the Holocaust were pretext for the New Khazaria or Israel hoax.The story of the Khazar Empire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated.(Arthur Koestler,The Thirteenth Tribe, p. 17).

Old Khazaria existed from about 500 A.D. to about1000 A.D.

Erik Prince is the founder of Blackwater mercenaries

Erik Prince is the son of a billionaire Michigan industrialist named Edgar Prince. His father was a generous contributor to right-wing evangelical “Protestant” causes and Erik became a major contributor to Catholic organizations….He founded Blackwater in 1998.

Erik began his political career working as an intern for Gary Bauer at the Family Research Council and also worked in the Bush I White House, although he thought that this administration was too liberal. Prince disapproved of the Bush I administration to the extent that in 1992 he supported Patrick Buchanan for President, something that got him into trouble with his sister Betsy.

Erik Prince is a Catholic. He most likely became Catholic when he married his first wife, who died of cancer shortly after they were married. Interestingly enough, most of the leadership at Blackwater is also Catholic, albeit a conservative wing of the church that is quite reactionary. Erik Prince is personally connected to conservative Catholic groups like Catholic Answer, Crisis magazine, and a Grand Rapids-based group, the Acton Institute. But Prince has not abandoned his Protestant/Evangelical roots and is a close friend of Watergate criminal turned believer Chuck Colson. They have shared the podium on several occasions, even once at Calvin College. According to Scahill, Prince is aligning himself with a new Catholic/Evangelical alliance called “Evangelicals and Catholics Together.” The ECT manifesto states:

Tim LaHaye and the Council for National Policy

In 1981, Tim LaHaye was the founder of a highly secretive conservative think tank called the Council for National Policy dedicated to turning the nation to the right. One of the founding members was named Edgar Prince, father of Erik Prince, the secretive founder of the Blackwater mercenaries:

ARMY. NAVY. AIR FORCE. MARINES. BLACKWATER!!

The 5th branch of the CONfederate military is called BLACKWATER after the area in Camden County, North Carolina, where the mercenaries train. Of course they don’t call themselves mercenaries but private contractors. Their founder, Erik Prince, is described by the media as a RIGHT WING EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN!!

A decade ago, the company barely existed; and yet, its “diplomatic security” contracts since mid-2004, with the State Department alone, total more than $750 million. Today, Blackwater has become nothing short of the Bush administration’s well-paid Praetorian Guard. It protects the U.S. ambassador and other senior officials in Iraq as well as visiting congressional delegations; it trains Afghan security forces and was deployed in the oil-richCaspian Sea region, setting up a “command and control” center just miles from the Iranian border. The company was also hired to protect FEMA operations and facilities in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, where it raked in $240,000 a day from the American taxpayer, billing $950 a day per Blackwater contractor.

Tim LaHaye and the Council for National Policy

In 1981, Tim LaHaye was the founder of a highly secretive conservative think tank called the Council for National Policy dedicated to turning the nation to the right. One of the founding members was named Edgar Prince, father of Erik Prince, the secretive founder of the Blackwater mercenaries:

“But Erik Prince’s philanthropy has certainly not been limited to Catholic causes. The Prince family was deeply involved in the secretive Council for National Policy, described by the New York Times as “a little-known club of a few hundred of the most powerful conservatives in the country [which has] met behind closed doors at undisclosed locations for a confidential conference” three times a year “to strategize about how to turn the country to the right.” The Council was started in 1981 by the Rev. Tim LaHaye, one of the founders of the modern right-wing Christian movement in the United States and author of the apocalyptic Left Behind novels.”‘ The idea was to build a Christian conservative alternative to the Rockefeller Council on Foreign Relations, which LaHaye considered too liberal. CNP membership is kept secret, and members are instructed that ‘The media should not know when or where we meet or who takes part in our programs, before or after a meeting.’

Hal Lindsey is known as the father of modern “Bible” prophecy. His famous Late Great Planet Earth sold over 35 million copies and spawned the billion dollar end-times industry, whose books and videos repeat his dispensational theme, and are patterned after his novel writing style. Lindsey actually is a Jesuit in disguise as 2 of his daughters attendedJesuit Gonzaga University.
That Left Behind series was nothing more than Illuminati propaganda for the Christian community. It has no basis fact on how Biblical prophecy will truly unfold.

Schumer the Zionist NY Politician said Obama’s ‘counter-productive’ Israel policy ‘has to stop’.

Schumer Obama Israel

New York Zionist Senator and Israeli plant Chuck Schumer harshly criticized the Obama Administration’s attempts to exert pressure on Israel today, making him the highest-ranking Democrat to object to Obama’s policies in such blunt terms.

Schumer, along with a majority of members of the House and Senate, signed on to letters politely suggesting the U.S. keep its disagreements with Israel private, a tacit objection to the administration’s very public rebuke of the Jewish State over construction in Jerusalem last month.

But Schumer dramatically sharpened his tone on the politically conservative Jewish Nachum Segal Show today, calling the White House stance to date “counter-productive” and describing his own threat to “blast” the Administration had the State Department not backed down from its “terrible” tough talk toward Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Schumer, a hawkish ally of Israel since his days as a Brooklyn Congressman, described “a battle going on inside the administration” over Middle East policy.

“This has to stop,” he said of the administration’s policy of publicly pressuring Israel to end construction in Jerusalem.

Republicans Zionist ‘troubled’ by US policy onIsrael

JERUSALEM — The Obama administration’s policy on Israel is misguided, puts too much emphasis on the issue of settlements and ignores the bigger threat of a nuclear-armed Iran, a U.S. delegation of Republican congressmen visiting Israel said Thursday.

Led by minority whip Eric Cantor from Virginia, the only Jewish Republican in Congress, the delegation of 25 Republicans say their weeklong mission to Israel is designed to show solidarity with the Jewish state and promote Mideast peace. A group of Democratic congressmen are expected to visit next week.

Left Behind by the Jesuits – The Truth About The Secret Rapture Secret Origin –


By Steve Wohlberg

Modern Christianity has largely forgotten the importance of the Protestant Reformation, which took place during the 1500s. “The sixteenth century presents the spectacle of a stormy sunrise after a dismal night. Europe awoke from long sleep of superstition. The dead arose. The witnesses to truth who had been silenced and slain stood up once more and renewed their testimony. The martyred confessors reappeared in the Reformers. There was a cleansing of the spiritual sanctuary. Civil and religious liberty were inaugurated. The discovery of printing and revival of learning accelerated the movement. There was progress everywhere. Columbus struck across the ocean and opened a new hemisphere to view. Rome was shaken on her seven hills, and lost one-half of her dominions. Protestant nations were created. The modern world was called into existence.”1

For almost a thousand years, Europe had been ruled by the iron hand of Rome. Only a few Bibles existed then, and Christianity was largely permeated with superstition. Faith in Jesus Christ, heartfelt appreciation for His love, and a simple trust in His death on the cross, were almost unknown. The New Testament truth about grace, full forgiveness, and the free gift of eternal life to believers in the Son of God (Romans 6:23), had been buried under a mass of tradition. Then Martin Luther arose like a lion in Germany. After a period of tremendous personal struggle, Martin Luther began teaching justification by faith in Jesus Christ (being declared “just” by God), rather than through reliance on “creature merits,” or any human works (Romans 1:16; 3:26, 28; 5:1).

Luther’s Discovery

Eventually, Martin Luther turned to the prophecies. By candlelight, he read about the “little horn,” the “man of sin,” and “the beast,” and he was shocked as the Holy Spirit spoke to his heart. Finally, he saw the truth and said to himself, “Why, these prophecies apply to the Roman Catholic Church!” As he wrestled with this new insight, the voice of God echoed loudly in his soul, saying, “Preach the word!” (2 Timothy 4:2). And so, at the risk of losing his life, Martin Luther preached publicly and in print to an astonished people that Papal Rome was indeed the Antichrist of Bible prophecy. Because of this dual message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ apart from works and of Papal Rome being the Antichrist, the river of history literally changed its course. Hundreds of thousands of people in Europe and in England left the Catholic Church.

“‘There are two great truths that stand out in the preaching that brought about the Protestant Reformation,’ American Bible Commentator, Ralph Woodrow, reminds us, ‘The just shall live by faith, not by the works of Romanism and the Papacy is the Antichrist of Scripture.’ It was a message for Christ and against Antichrist. The entire Reformation rests upon this twofold testimony.’”2 It has been said that the Reformation first discovered Jesus Christ, and then, in the blazing light of Christ, it discovered the Antichrist. This mighty, Spirit-filled movement, for Christ and against the Antichrist, shook the world.

H. Grattan Guinness wrote these memorable words: “From the first, and throughout, that movement [the Reformation] was energized and guided by the prophetic word. Luther never felt strong and free to war against the Papal apostasy till he recognized the pope as Antichrist. It was then that he burned the Papal bull. Knox’s first sermon, the sermon that launched him on his mission as a reformer, was on the prophecies concerning the Papacy. The reformers embodied their interpretations of prophecy in their confessions of faith, and Calvin in his ‘Institutes.’ All of the reformers were unanimous in the matter, even the mild and cautious Melanchthon was as assured of the antipapal meaning of these prophecies as was Luther himself. And their interpretation of these prophecies determined their reforming action. It led them to protest against Rome with extraordinary strength and undaunted courage. It nerved them to resist the claims of the apostate Church to the utmost. It made them martyrs; it sustained them at the stake. And the views of the Reformers were shared by thousands, by hundreds of thousands. They were adopted by princes and peoples. Under their influence nations abjured their allegiance to the false priest of Rome.

“In the reaction that followed, all the powers of hell seemed to be let loose upon the adherents of the Reformation. War followed war: tortures, burnings, and massacres were multiplied. Yet the Reformation stood undefeated and unconquerable. God’s word upheld it, and the energies of His Almighty Spirit. It was the work of Christ as truly as the founding of the Church eighteen centuries ago; and the revelation of the future which He gave from heaven—that prophetic book with which the Scripture closes—was one of the mightiest instruments employed in its accomplishment.”3

A Counter-Reformation

In 1545, the Catholic Church convened one of its most famous councils in history, which took place north of Rome in a city called Trent. The Council of Trent actually continued for three sessions, ending in 1563. One of the main purposes of this Council was for Catholics to plan a counterattack against Martin Luther and the Protestants. Thus the Council of Trent became a center for Rome’s Counter-Reformation. Up to this point, Rome’s main method of attack had been largely frontal—the open burning of Bibles and of heretics. Yet this warfare only confirmed in the minds of Protestants the conviction that Papal Rome was indeed the Beast which would “make war with the saints” (Revelation 13:7). Therefore a new tactic was needed, something less obvious. This is where the Jesuits come in.

On August 15, 1534, Ignatius Loyola (in the title picture) founded a secretive Catholic order called the Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits. The Jesuits definitely have a dark history of intrigue and sedition, that’s why they were expelled from Portugal (1759), France (1764), Spain (1767), Naples (1767), and Russia (1820). “Jesuit priests have been known throughout history as the most wicked political arm of the Roman Catholic Church. Edmond Paris, in his scholarly work, The Secret History of the Jesuits, reveals and documents much of this information.”4 At the Council of Trent, the Catholic Church gave the Jesuits the specific assignment of destroying Protestantism and bringing people back to the Mother Church. This was to be done not only through the Inquisition and through torture, but also through theology.

The Jesuit Commission

At the Council of Trent, the Jesuits were commissioned by the Pope to develop a new interpretation of Scripture that would counteract the Protestant application of the Bible’s Antichrist prophecies to the Roman Catholic Church. Francisco Ribera (1537-1591), a brilliant Jesuit priest and doctor of theology from Spain, basically said, “Here am I, send me.” Like Martin Luther, Francisco Ribera also read by candlelight the prophecies about the Antichrist, the little horn, that man of sin, and the Beast. But because of his dedication and allegiance to the Pope, he came to conclusions vastly different from those of the Protestants. “Why, these prophecies don’t apply to the Catholic Church at all!” Ribera said. Then to whom do they apply? Ribera proclaimed, “To only one sinister man who will rise up at the end of time!” “Fantastic!” was the reply from Rome, and this viewpoint was quickly adopted as the official Roman Catholic position on the Antichrist.

“In 1590, Ribera published a commentary on the Revelation as a counter-interpretation to the prevailing view among Protestants which identified the Papacy with the Antichrist. Ribera applied all of Revelation but the earliest chapters to the end time rather than to the history of the Church. Antichrist would be a single evil person who would be received by the Jews and would rebuild Jerusalem.”5 “Ribera denied the Protestant Scriptural Antichrist (2 Thessalonians 2) as seated in the church of God—asserted by Augustine, Jerome, Luther and many reformers. He set on an infidel Antichrist, outside the church of God.”6 “The result of his work [Ribera’s] was a twisting and maligning of prophetic truth.”7

Following close behind Francisco Ribera was another brilliant Jesuit scholar, Cardinal Robert Bellarmine (1542-1621) of Rome. Between 1581 and 1593, Cardinal Bellarmine published his “Polemic Lectures Concerning the Disputed Points of the Christian Belief Against the Heretics of This Time.” In these lectures, he agreed with Ribera. “The futurist teachings of Ribera were further popularized by an Italian cardinal and the most renowned of all Jesuit controversialists. His writings claimed that Paul, Daniel, and John had nothing whatsoever to say about the Papal power. The futurists’ school won general acceptance among Catholics. They were taught that Antichrist was a single individual who would not rule until the very end of time.”8 Through the work of these two tricky Jesuit scholars, we might say that a brand new baby was born into the world. Protestant historians have given this baby a name—Jesuit Futurism. In fact, Francisco Ribera has been called the Father of Futurism.

Defining the Issue

Before we go much farther, let’s define some terms. Historicism is the belief that Biblical prophecies about the little horn, the man of sin, the Antichrist, the Beast, and the Babylonian Harlot of Revelation 17, all apply to the developing history of Christianity and to the ongoing struggle between Jesus Christ and Satan within the Christian Church, culminating at the end of time. Historicism sees these prophecies as having a direct application to Papal Rome as a system whose doctrines are actually a denial of the New Testament message of free salvation by grace through simple faith in Jesus Christ, apart from works. Historicism was the primary prophetic viewpoint of the Protestant Reformers. In direct opposition to Historicism, and rising up as a razor-sharp counterattack on Protestantism, was that of the Jesuits with their viewpoint of Futurism, which basically says, “The Antichrist prophecies have nothing to do with the history of Papal Rome, rather, they apply to only one sinister man who comes at the end.”

Thus Jesuit Futurism sweeps 1,500 years of prophetic history under the proverbial rug by inserting its infamous GAP. This theory teaches that when Rome fell, prophecy stopped, only to continue again right around the time of the Rapture, thus the “gap” was created. The ten horns, the little horn, the Beast, and the Antichrist have nothing to do with Christians until this “last-day Antichrist” should appear. According to this viewpoint, there were no prophecies being fulfilled during the Dark Ages!

Inroads in Protestantism

For almost 300 years after the Council of Trent, Jesuit Futurism remained largely inside the realm of Catholicism, but the plan of the Jesuits was that these theological tenets be adopted by Protestants. This adoption process actually began in the early 1800s in England, and from there it spread to America. The story of how this happened is both fascinating and tragic. As I briefly share some of the highlights, I want to clarify that I am not judging the genuineness of these Christian men. They may have been sincere, yet at the same time deceived in some areas of their theological understanding.

“The Futurism of Ribera never posed a positive threat to the Protestants for three centuries. It was virtually confined to the Roman Church. But early in the nineteenth century it sprang forth with vehemence and latched on to Protestants of the Established Church of England.”9 Dr. Samuel Roffey Maitland (1792-1866), a lawyer and Bible scholar, became a librarian to the Archbishop of Canterbury. It is very likely that one day he discovered Ribera’s commentary in the library. In any event, in 1826 he published a widely-read book attacking the Reformation and supporting Ribera’s idea of a future one-man Antichrist. For the next ten years, in tract after tract, he continued his anti-Reformation rhetoric. As a result of his zeal and strong attacks against the Reformation in England, the Protestantism of that very nation which produced the King James Bible (1611) received a crushing blow.

After Dr. Maitland came James H. Todd, a professor of Hebrew at the University of Dublin. Todd accepted the futuristic ideas of Maitland, publishing his own supportive pamphlets and books. Then came John Henry Newman (1801-1890), a member of the Church of England and a leader of the famous Oxford Movement (1833-1845). In 1850, Newman wrote his “Letter on Anglican Difficulties,” revealing that one of the goals in the Oxford Movement was to finally absorb “the various English denominations and parties” back into the Church of Rome. After publishing a pamphlet endorsing Todd’s futurism about a one-man Antichrist, Newman soon became a full Roman Catholic, and later even a highly honored Cardinal. Through the influence of Maitland, Todd, Newman, and others, a definite “Romeward movement was already arising, destined to sweep away the old Protestant landmarks, as with a flood.”10

Then came the much-respected Scottish Presbyterian minister, Edward Irving (1792-1834), the acknowledged forerunner of both the Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements. Irving pastored the large Chalcedonian Chapel in London with over 1,000 members. When Irving turned to the prophecies, he eventually accepted the one-man Antichrist idea of Todd, Maitland, Bellarmine, and Ribera, yet he went a step further. Somewhere around 1830, Edward Irving began to teach the unique idea of a two-phase return of Christ, the first phase being a secret rapture prior to the rise of the Antichrist. Where he got this idea is a matter of much dispute. Journalist Dave MacPherson believes Irving accepted it is a result of a prophetic revelation given to a young Scottish girl named Margaret McDonald.11 In any case, the fact is, Irving taught it!

In the midst of this growing anti-Protestant climate in England, there arose a man by the name of John Nelson Darby (1800-1882). A brilliant lawyer, pastor, and theologian, he wrote more than 53 books on Bible subjects. A much-respected Christian and a man of deep piety, Darby took a strong stand in favor of the infallibility of the Bible in contrast with the liberalism of his day. He became one of the leaders of a group in Plymouth, England, which became known as the Plymouth Brethren. Darby’s contribution to the development of evangelical theology has been so great that he has been called The Father of Modern Dispensationalism. Yet John Nelson Darby, like Edward Irving, also became a strong promoter of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture followed by a one-man Antichrist. In fact, this teaching has become a hallmark of Dispensationalism.

Dispensationalism is the theory that God deals with mankind in major dispensations or periods. According to Darby, we are now in the “Church Age,” that is, until the Rapture. After the Rapture, then the seven-year period of Daniel 9:27 will supposedly kick in, and this is when the Antichrist will rise up against the Jews. In fact, John Nelson Darby laid much of the foundation for the present popular removal of Daniel’s 70th week away from history and from Jesus Christ in favor of applying it to a future Tribulation after the Rapture. Thus, in spite of all the positives of his ministry, Darby followed Maitland, Todd, Bellarmine, and Ribera by incorporating the teachings of Futurism into his theology. This created a link between John Nelson Darby, the Father of Dispen-sationalism, and the Jesuit Francisco Ribera, the Father of Futurism. Darby visited America six times between 1859-1874, preaching in all of its major cities, during which time he definitely planted the seeds of Futurism in American soil. The child of the Jesuits was growing up.

Futurism in America

One of the most important figures in this whole drama is Cyrus Ingerson Scofield (1843-1921), a Kansas lawyer who was greatly influenced by the writings of Darby. In 1909, Scofield published the first edition of his famous Scofield Reference Bible. In the early 1900s, this Bible became so popular in American Protestant Bible schools that it was necessary to print literally millions of copies. Yet, in the much-respected footnotes of this very Bible, Scofield injected large doses of the fluid of Futurism also found in the writings of Darby, Todd, Maitland, Bellarmine, and Ribera. Through the Scofield Bible, the Jesuit child reached young adulthood. The doctrine of an Antichrist still to come was becoming firmly established inside 20th-century American Protestantism.

(Martin Luther, as well as all of the other Reformers, were unanimous in their interpretation of the Antichrist as the papacy.)

The Moody Bible Institute and the Dallas Theological Seminary have strongly supported the teachings of John Nelson Darby, and this has continued to fuel Futurism’s growth. Then in the 1970s, Pastor Hal Lindsey, a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, released his blockbuster book The Late Great Planet Earth. This 177-page, easy-to-read volume brought Futurism to the masses of American Christianity, and beyond. The New York Times labeled it “The number one best-seller of the decade.” Over 30 million copies have been sold, and it has been translated into over 30 languages. Through The Late Great Planet Earth, Jesuit Futurism took a strong hold over the Protestant Christian world.

Left Behind

Now we have Left Behind. In the 1990s, Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins took the future one-man Antichrist idea of Hal Lindsey, Scofield, Darby, Irving, Newman, Todd, Maitland, Bellarmine, and Ribera, and turned it into “The most successful Christian-fiction series ever” (Publishers Weekly). Hal Lindsey’s book, The Late Great Planet Earth, was largely theological, which limited its appeal, while Left Behind is a sequence of highly imaginative novels, “overflowing with suspense, action, and adventure,” a “Christian thriller,” with a “label its creators could never have predicted: blockbuster success” (Entertainment Weekly). The much-respected television ministries of Jack Van Impe, Peter and Paul Lalonde, and Pastor John Hagee, have all worked together to produce LEFT BEHIND: The Movie. The entire project has even caught the attention of the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, resulting in an interview of LaHaye and Jenkins on Larry King Live. The Left Behind books have been made available on displays at WalMart, Fry’s Electronics, and inside countless other stores.

Again, let me clarify, I am not judging the genuineness of the authors of Left Behind and the leaders of these television ministries. They may be sincere, and have their own walk with God. But they are deceived into wrong ideas concerning Bible prophecy. God may even use Left Behind to influence people for Jesus Christ. But, in the full light of Scripture, prophecy, and the Protestant Reformation, something is terribly wrong. Left Behind is now teaching much of the same Jesuit Futurism as Francisco Ribera, which is hiding the real truth about the Antichrist. Through Left Behind, the floodgates of Futurism have been opened, unleashing a massive tidal wave of false prophecy which is now sweeping over America. Sadly, it is a false “idea whose time has come.”

The Prophetic Foundation

As we have already seen, the theological foundation for the entire Left Behind series is the application of the “seven years” of Daniel 9:27 to a future period of Tribulation. Are you ready for this? Guess who was one of the very first scholars to slice Daniel’s 70th week away from the first 69 weeks, sliding it down to the end of time? It was Francisco Ribera! “Ribera’s primary apparatus was the seventy weeks. He taught that Daniel’s 70th week was still in the future. . . It was as though God put a giant rubber band on this Messianic time measure. Does this supposition sound familiar? This is exactly the scenario used by Hal Lindsey and a multitude of other current prophecy teachers.”12

When most Christians look at the last 1,500 years, how much fulfilled prophecy do they see? None, zero, because almost everything is now being applied to a future time period after the Rapture. As we have seen, this GAP idea originated with the Jesuits, and its insertion into the majority of 21st century prophetic teaching is now blinding millions of hearts and eyes to what has gone before, and to what is happening right now inside the Church. “It is this GAP theory that permeates Futurism’s interpretation of all apocalyptic prophecy.”13 In love and in the Spirit of Jesus Christ, someone should publicly appeal to the major prophetic television ministries of today to re-evaluate their positions. Hopefully, like noble ships with a new command from their captain, they will yet change their course.

Jesuit Futurism has almost completely changed the beliefs of Protestant Historicism. “The proper eschatological term for the view most taught today is Futurism, which fuels the confusion of Dispensationalism. The futuristic school of Bible prophecy came from the Roman Catholic Church, specifically her Jesuit theologians. . . However the alternative has been believed for centuries. It is known as Historicism.”14 “It is a matter for deep regret that those who hold and advocate the Futurist system at the present day, Protestants as they are for the most part, are thus really playing into the hands of Rome, and helping to screen the Papacy from detection as the Antichrist.”15

Who Had It Right?

Who had the right theology—those who were burned at the stake for Jesus Christ, or those who lit the fires? Who had the true Bible doctrine—the martyrs or their persecutors? Who had the correct interpretation of the Antichrist—those who died trusting in the blood of Christ, or those who shed the blood of God’s dear saints? Dear friend, Jesuit Futurism is now at war with the Protestant Reformation by denying its power-packed application of prophecy to the Vatican. “The futurist school of Bible prophecy was created for one reason, and one reason only: to counter the Protestant Reformation!”16 In fact, Jesuit Futurism is at war with the prophecies of the Word of God itself! And if that’s not enough, consider this. Jesuit Futurism originated with the Roman Catholic Church, which makes it the very doctrine of the Antichrist! And when Christian ministries and movies like A Thief in the Night, Apocalypse, Revelation, Tribulation, and Left Behind, proclaim an Antichrist who comes only after the Rapture, what are they really doing? I shudder to even say it. Are you ready for this? They are sincerely and yet unknowingly teaching the doctrine of the Antichrist!

Now you know why truth has been left behind. You are now able to see The Left Behind deception. I appeal to you in the loving name of Jesus Christ, the Crucified One—Don’t fall for it.

Francisco Ribera and Cardinal Robert Bellarmine, two Jesuit scholars, published works that taught that the Scriptures written by Paul, Daniel, and John had nothing whatsoever to say about the Papal power

Adding to the Futuristic interpretation of prophecy, John Nelson Darby added the theory of dispensationalism, or the idea tht God deals with mankind in major dispensations or periods of time.

Cyrus Scofield, the famed publisher of the Scofield Reference Bible, liberally interspersed the footnotes of his Bible with large doses of Futurism. These footnotes are still widely accepted by many theologians today.

Why the Jesuits created Israel

Zionist plan for Israel predated the pope’s banker Rothschild. It is a religious plan to deceive of the Jesuits’.

Zionism, not Jewish but Jesuit

1517, All over Europe the Pope was called The Antichrist. This prophetic teaching (historicist) was playing havoc with the Roman church. Millions were escaping and obeying the Lord’s command to “come out of her” (Rev. 18:4).

LIEola commissioned one of his Jesuits named Francisco Ribera (1537-1591) to write an opposing view. He wrote a 500 page commentary on the Book of Revelation. The main premise of his commentary was that:

(1) Antichrist was one man . . . not a dynasty.
(2) He would be an atheist or infidel.
(3) He would not be revealed until 7 years before the end of time.
(4) He would sit in a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem and make a covenant with the Jews.
(5) He would call himself God etc., etc.
(6) The Christians were hindering his appearance but they would be “caught up” raptured to Heaven before his appearance — the “Left Behind” madness!!

This became the official Roman Catholic position on Antichrist. This new idea (futurism) very conveniently shifted the focus from the Papacy to some fanciful individual way off in the distant future. John Nelson Darby became its main proponent in the English speaking world.

In order to make this “prophecy” come true he had to “invent Jews” (Rothschilds) and somehow get them back to Palestine.

The mighty nation of ancient Israel perished by the Roman sword in 70 A.D., in exact fulfillment of the words of Jesus The Temple was leveled to the ground and not one stone was left upon another that was not thrown down.

Inventing “Jews” was no problem for Rome. Even at the time of Christ there was a whole nation that called themselves Jews . . . but were phonies. They were the Samaritans who lived to the north of Jerusalem. Jesus even had an interview with a Samaritan woman at a well (Gospel of John ch. 4). One of them, Simon the Sorcerer, actually went to Rome and founded the Roman Catholic church.

Zionism began in earnest after WW I with the British Conquest of Palestine. Still, most of those Samaritan Jews were not interested in going there. After all, most of them were living comfortably in Germany and they had no interest in helping Ribera fulfill his futurism.

Hitler and WW II in 1948 helped found the State of Israel and the survivors of the Holocaust had no where else to go.

Israel’s Apartheid Worse than South Africa’s – Middle-East News – Violence Erupts in Jerusalem – ALPAC Condemns US for Condemning Israel – Hillary Slams Israel’s Contempt for Obama’s Middle East Peace Plan – Is Israel in Bible Prophecy?

The truth is simpler. Regardless of whether there is a Democrat or a Republican in the White House, the United States became a distinctly pro-Israel world power after the 1967 war. It has no intention of being a “balanced mediator” when it comes to the conflict with the Palestinians.

Barack Obama’s public relations moves in the Arab world have frightened many average Israelis. But Netanyahu and Ehud Barak, allies of the final takeover of the West Bank, know very well that U.S. policy has not changed. It doesn’t take a genius to read the working papers of past prime ministers. The prevailing attitude of all U.S. administrations was drafted by Henry Morgenthau, and was later updated by Kenneth Waltz. One line guided all of them – Dennis Ross, Martin Indyk, George Mitchell – essentially, that any possible settlement must match the positions of the stronger party.

This is how the Americans abandoned the refugee issue, and this is why they abandoned the opposition to settlements. Netanyahu is no genius. He is simply not interested in saying good-bye to the occupation. That is all. After all, he came to power because of this. To complain about him is to complain about November rain.

The Israeli public’s choice is a different matter. The spokesmen of the dovish camp tell us horror stories about a future binational state. But the binational state is already here. It has a rigid apartheid legal system, as the High Court of Justice fades away.

The system preserving this apartheid is more ruthless than that seen in South Africa, where the black were a labor force and could therefore also make a living. It is equipped with the lie of being “temporary.” Occasionally, Israel’s indifference comes up with allegations against the Palestinians.

Abba Eban captured the allegation by coining a phrase repeated by the doves of all parties, who never really went to battle over Israel’s future and allowed the “settlement project” to spread. After all, occupation makes Israelis richer. Why oppose it?

Yaakov (Jack) Teitel is the American aid secured by moderate Israel. What Yitzhak Rabin failed to do after the massacre by the last import, Baruch Goldstein – to uproot the Jewish settlement in Hebron – will not happen now either. Shvut Rachel, Tapuah or any other such town will not be moved, nor will the smaller “illegal” outposts.

Beyond the two Palestinians whose murders were never really investigated, and past what Ami Ortiz or Professor Ze’ev Sternhell went through, Teitel is a Made-in-the-U.S.A. reminder that “no one will do for you what you fail to do for yourselves.”

President Obama and Netanyahu meet. Netanyahu want regime change in US.
President Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu are shown in this composite.
The Obama administration shifted this week from red hot anger at
Benjamin Netanyahu to an icier suspicion toward the Israeli Prime Minister,
who made clear in a marathon of meetings with U.S. officials that he would
give ground only grudgingly on their goal of stopping the continued
construction of new Israeli housing units on disputed territory.The clearest
sign of Netanyahu’s rift with the White House, however, may have
been his intense focus on Congress, which has blunted the attempts of
many of Obama’s predecessors to pressure the Jewish state.

“We in Congress stand by Israel,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said,

standing beside Netanyahu Tuesday. “In Congress, we speak with

one voice on the subject of Israel.” Pelosi is a Zionist as well as most

of the senators. ALPAC has been funding the campaigns of all the senators.

But while Congress was speaking publicly with one voice, behind the scenes Netanyahu

seemed to be trying to drive a wedge between it and the White House.

The Israeli leader met separately with groups of congressmen and senators, finding support

on both sides of the aisle, but particular warmth from Republicans.

    Israel: Settlement Construction Will Continue In East Jerusalem, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Says

    The US finally seems to be losing patience now that Netanyahu’s behaviour is endangering its troops.

    Israeli-Palestinian tensions erupted into violence today with clashes in East Jerusalem as the US postponed a visit by its Middle East envoy in protest at Binyamin Netanyahu‘s settlement policy.

    Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist movement, announced a “day of rage” after Monday’s reopening of a synagogue in Jerusalem’s Old City, clearly seeking to focus international attention on the issue.

    The rival Fatah movement also urged Palestinians to flock to the al-Aqsa mosque, the most sensitive of Muslim sites in the divided city. Buses transporting worshippers were turned back.

    Israel‘s Ynet website reported 49 Palestinians injured in confrontations with Israeli paramilitary border guards. Masked rioters burned tyres and threw stones.

    Israeli-US relations ‘at 35-year low’

    Israeli ambassador to Washington says ties with US in ‘crisis of historic proportions’ amid row over settlement plans

    Israel‘s ambassador to the US, Michael Oren, has said the row over new housing in East Jerusalem has triggered the worst crisis in US-Israeli relations in 35 years, despite attempts by Binyamin Netanyahu to project a sense of “business as usual”. The question is whether the US will move beyond criticism to take punitive action if its demands are not met.

    Israel is the largest recipient of US foreign aid – $2.4bn annually, rising to $3bn in 2011 – much of it for the military. No US president since George Bush Sr has tried to make aid to Israel contingent on the country’s adherence to international law.

    Biden urges speedy peace process

    US vice-president appeals for no delay in Middle East talks amid settler homes row.The US vice-president has said there should be no delay in resuming Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

    Speaking at Tel Aviv University on Thursday, Joe Biden said the “most important thing is for the talks to go forward promptly and go forward in good faith”.

    “We can’t delay because when progress is postponed, extremists exploit our differences,” he said.

    Biden’s remarks came amid media reports that tens of thousands of housing units in Jerusalem neighbourhoods are in various stages of planning and approval.

    Israel’s refusal to halt construction in the occupied territories is a major sticking point in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and threatens Palestinian prospects of ever getting an independent state.

    Biden, who has been visiting Israeli and Palestinian officials with a view to reopening talks, suffered a major setback on Wednesday after Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, called off the “proximity” talks.

    ‘Unacceptable insults’

    Moussa declared that “insults have reached a point that not a single Arab could accept”.

    “Our position now is we reject the Israeli message. Abu Mazen [Abbas] is not ready to enter talks; it’s useless,” he said.

    “The talks have already stopped.”

    Biden condemned Israel’s decision to build more units, saying Tel Aviv’s move undermined the trust needed for negotiations.

    Earlier, speaking to Al Jazeera in the occupied West Bank, Biden said: “”The Palestinians and the Israelis had just agreed to begin proximity talks, hopefully leading to an agreement, a final agreement.

    Moussa declared that ‘insults have reached a point that not a single Arab could accept’ [AFP]

    “It is so easy to focus on everything that’s wrong in a relationship but when I speak to all these folks and my old friends, Mr Abbas and Mr [Salam] Fayyad and Mr Netanyahu, all these folks and old friends … when you speak to them individually, the truth is that they’re not far apart.

    “This is a time when we should be building trust because I am absolutely convinced there’s a desire on the part of the parties to move forward. They know the status quo is helpful to neither of them.

    Israeli go-ahead for new settlement homes casts cloud over Biden visit

    east jerusalem9 Mar 2010:

    Israel approves plan for 1,600 new homes in East Jerusalem, hours after US vice-president pledged support for government. Israel’s contempt for Obama Middle East Peace agenda is growing day by day.

    Israel approves more construction in West Bank settlement

    Binyamin Netanyahu gives a televised press conference in Jerusalem

    The Israeli defence ministry today authorised further construction in a Jewish settlement on the occupied West Bank.

    The decision came prior to the arrival in Israel of the US vice-president,Joe Biden, who is expected to announce a new round of indirect peace talks.

    Approval for 112 new flats in Beitar Illit, an ultra-Orthodox settlement near Bethlehem, was given despite a 10-month partial curb on settlement construction announced by the Israeli government under heavy US pressure in November.

    The decision to approve the building work appeared to be an attempt to appease members of Israel‘s rightwing coalition government. It was greeted with dismay by Palestinian officials.

    Joe Biden offers Israel full US support even if they have the utmost contempt for the Obama Administration.


    In talks with Binyamin Netanyahu, US vice-president stresses need to prevent Iran obtaining nuclear weapons

    The US vice-president, Joe Biden, promised the Israeli government today that it had the strong support of Washington and said the US was committed to preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

    “There is no space between the US and Israel when it comes to Israel’s security,” (Israel is the US/Rothschilds proxy government) Biden said, after meeting the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, in Jerusalem. Their talks appeared to focus on Iran and its nuclear ambitions, rather than on the new round of low-key, indirect peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians that was agreed yesterday.

    Biden, who is the most senior US official to visit Israel since Barack Obama was elected last year, said addressing Iran’s nuclear programme was a priority. “We are determined to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons,” he said.

    Palestinians snub peace talks over Israeli homes expansion

    East Jerusalem

    The Palestinians pulled out of a new round of indirect peace talks last night, even before they had begun, as a protest at Israel‘s decision to announce approval for hundreds of new homes in a Jewish settlement in East Jerusalem.

    The decision to pull out, announced in Cairo by Amr Moussa, head of the Arab League, represents a major setback to months of diplomacy by the US administration and comes after the US vice-president, Joe Biden, delivered an unusually strong rebuke to Israel.

    Amr Moussa said he had been told by the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, that even this low-key process of so-called “proximity talks” could not start unless Israel stopped expanding its settlements.

    “The Palestinian side is not ready to negotiate under the present circumstances,” Moussa said.

    Israeli and Palestinian leaders have not held direct negotiations since Israel’s war in Gaza last year. The White House had won agreement on Monday from the two sides to begin the indirect talks, hoping they would lead to face-to-face meetings.

    The Palestinians had insisted there would be no direct talks unless Israel halted all settlement expansion, in line with the demands of the US administration and the roadmap, which remains the framework of peace talks.

    But Israel’s prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, leading a rightwing coalition government, offered only a temporary, partial curb to new building.

    Then, on Tuesday, hours after Biden met Israeli leaders, the Israeli interior ministry announced approval for 1,600 new apartments in Ramat Shlomo, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish settlement in East Jerusalem. All settlements on occupied land are illegal under international law.

    Israel’s opposition Kadima party said it is planning a no-confidence vote in the prime minister in parliament for “destroying” the Biden visit.

    Yesterday, Biden emerged from talks with Abbas in Ramallah, on the occupied West Bank, and repeated his criticisms of the timing and substance of Israel’s announcement. “It is incumbent on both parties to build an atmosphere of support for negotiations and not to complicate them,” he said.

    “The decision by the Israeli government to advance planning for new housing units in East Jerusalem undermines that very trust, the trust that we need right now in order to begin … profitable negotiations.”

    Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad said the Palestinians appreciated “the strong statement of condemnation” by the US administration.

    Biden Netanyahu

    Biden issued the following statement Tuesday afternoon in response:

    I condemn the decision by the government of Israel to advance planning for new housing units in East Jerusalem. The substance and timing of the announcement, particularly with the launching of proximity talks, is precisely the kind of step that undermines the trust we need right now and runs counter to the constructive discussions that I’ve had here in Israel. We must build an atmosphere to support negotiations, not complicate them. This announcement underscores the need to get negotiations under way that can resolve all the outstanding issues of the conflict. The United States recognizes that Jerusalem is a deeply important issue for Israelis and Palestinians and for Jews, Muslims and Christians. We believe that through good faith negotiations, the parties can mutually agree on an outcome that realizes the aspirations of both parties for Jerusalem and safeguards its status for people around the world. Unilateral action taken by either party cannot prejudge the outcome of negotiations on permanent status issues. As George Mitchell said in announcing the proximity talks, “we encourage the parties and all concerned to refrain from any statements or actions which may inflame tensions or prejudice the outcome of these talks.

    Relations between Israel and the Obama administration have been chilly precisely because of the settlement issue.

    The U.S., like the Palestinians and the rest of the international community, believes that Israeli settlements built on lands claimed by the Palestinians, including east Jerusalem, undermine peace prospects. President Obama has been more outspoken on the issue than his predecessors.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rebuffed calls from the White House to halt all settlement activity, agreeing only to a limited freeze that does not include east Jerusalem.

    OBAMA WILL BE TESTED

    Biden is correct, some foreign leader is going to try the steel of Obama, but which foreign leader will it be? Will it be Russia, Iran, China, or North Korea? None of the above. It will be Israel. The forces of evil have already raised its ugly head. What Obama wanted to do with world diplomacy, re-establishing the credibility of the US especially in the Muslim world, Israel is making that extremely difficult. President Bush has already blamed the victims (Gaza) and justified the perpetrators (Israel) for the violence in Gaza. That is the same as a woman being brutally rape and the judge arrest the woman and blames her for allowing the rapist to rape her. The people of Gaza are being killed with American made and American donated F-16 fighter jets, GPS-guided GBU-39 smart bombs, and Tanks. Why is it that every time Israel raid Gaza, Ramallah, Hebron, or Lebanon , the United States that pays? What was Israel doing at 911? They were in Ramallah doing the same thing that they are doing in Gaza now. It was the unbalance America foreign policy in the Middle East that caused 911 and led the US into the Iraq war. According to Bush advisor Philip Zelikow “the IRAQ war was launched to protect Israel.” The only problem is that Americans are giving their lives and Israel politicians are laughing all the way to the bank. This unbalance policy has also caused the US to lose its credibility and positive standing in the World as well as thousands of lives. Is America going to allow Israeli politicians and American Zionist Lobbyists to continue to put the American people in harms way? Yes, Muslims worldwide will continue to say “no justice no peace” Christians worldwide should also cry out and condemn the actions of Israel. When will the US foreign policy in the Middle East be fair and balance? When are the American politicians going to say enough is enough? Will Obama be fair and balance? Or will Obama be controlled by AIPAC and the Jewish lobby?

    How Should Christians View Israel? Is the Creation of Israel in 1948 of God or Man? Who are Modern-day Jews? Know the Truth

    Posted by joeland7

    The rapture theory is not Biblical and was founded as an Anti-Reformation tool of the Catholic Church. The purpose of the rapture theory was to destroy the reformation or control protestantism, recapture the Holy Land and establish the New Word Order and the One world government. The rapture theory has more to do with the racist, arrogant and diabolical concept of British Israel than anything pertaining to the Kingdom of God. The rapture theory is from the pits of hell, created by Luciferians, and promoted by agents of the prince of darkness.

    Barbara Rossing said in her book The Rapture Racket,

    ” the Rapture is a fraud of monumental proportions, as well as a disturbing way to instill fear in people.

    “Whether prescribing a violent script for Israel or survivalism in the United States, this theology distorts God’s vision for the world,” Rossing writes. “In place of healing, the Rapture proclaims escape. In place of Jesus’s blessing of peacemaking, the Rapture voyeuristically glorifies violence and war …. This theology is not biblical. We are not Raptured off the earth, nor is God.

    Where did the rapture theory originate and why?

    Reformers such as Luther, Calvin, Huss, Zwingli, Melanchthon, Bullinger and others had identified the Catholic Church as Mystery Babylon in Revelation and the Popes as the Anti-Christ. Millions of sincere Catholics were leaving the mother church and joining the reformation movement.. The church set out to neutralize and destroy the protestant movement.. What they could not do through brute force and the military inquisitions they did through political espionage, spiritual intrigue, and using mind control techniques by secret societies. Most of the books published on the rapture are brainwashing the readers mind. All of the books written by Tim Lahaye’s, John Hagee’s, Jack van Impe, Jerry Jenkins , John Walvoord and movies such as the Omega Code and Megiddo are design for mind control. This anti-protestant doctrine is taught in many universities and seminaries such as Dallas Theological Seminary, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Southwestern Assemblies of God, Zion Bible College, Moody Bible Institute, Global University, Liberty and Regent University and well as a host of other leading colleges and universities The rapture cult has the largest following than any cult in the US or Europe.

    Why were sincere Catholics, priests and monks leaving the Catholic Church.?

    People were leaving because of corruptions in the church. If one look at the Babylonian sun worship, and the present Roman Catholic Mass there are many similarities. Baal worship seem to have taken over the Catholic Church. The icon of the virgin mother and child with halos (representing the sun), Mary as the queen of heaven, (Isis – queen of heaven) confessionals, wafer worship, transubstantiation, and priests as exclusive mediators of God were all derived from the Satanic Babylonian religion. Roman Catholicism became a mixture of witchcraft, Judaism, paganism, and perverted Christianity. When this corruptions was exposed by the reformers, Rome was outraged, and staged Holy Inquisitions, design to rid the world of heretics. The Inquisition included torturing and murdering people who didn’t not agree with the Catholic views. Ten of thousands of people were killed and some historians even put the numbers in the millions. Later, in response to the Vatican’s oppressive dogma, Martin Luther, a former Augustinian monk, nailed his 95 theses to the wall of a church in Germany, heralding Protestantism. . The Vatican was shaken as Protestantism spreads rapidly through Europe. In order to stamp out the spiritual rebellion, Pope Paul III ordered Ignatius de Loyola to found the Order of Jesuits, which would act as the intelligentsia and secret militia of the Vatican. Loyola had already founded the occult Illuminati, which he then placed under the umbrella of the Vatican ” Ignatius a Merovingian Jew from Loyola Spain was a member of the Alumbrados before he founded the Illuminati and the Jesuits. The Merovingian Jews claim to be decedents of Jesus and Mary of Magdalene. Thus you have books and movies like DaVinci Code, Prieure de Sion, Passover Plot, Holy Blood Holy Grail, Bloodline of the Holy Grail, being produced and circulated by Hollywood Kabbalist movie studios and publishing houses controlled by the Illuminati. These books are blasphemous teachings design to nullify the true Gospel of Jesus. Many of the Popes, Cardinals, Bishops and Priest were Merovingian Jews whose agenda was to destroy true Christianity and pervert the true gospel.

    The Jesuits Oath:

    I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants’ heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus.”It was when Pope Paul III convened the Council of Trent that the church formally addressed the protestant reformation with edicts, dogmas and doctrines. A disciple of Ignatius, Francisco Ribera came up with a theory that would take the attention off the Pope as being the Anti-Christ and put it on some future individual. This was the beginning of the Rapture doctrine. The Jesuits infiltrated the protestant movement, developed protestant theology, and purposely mis interpreted scriptures relating to Bible prophecy. They also controlled the educational system and bribe and blackmailed governments of Europe and America to promote their agenda. Two other groups that were instrumental the origin and development of the rapture theory were the Knights Templars (Masons) and the Knights of Malta (Knights of Columbus).

    Barbara Aho said in her article (The Merovingian Dynasty) “it was also the The avowed objective of the Templars was to protect the Christians who came to visit the Holy Places: their secret objective was the re-building of the Temple of Solomon on the model prophesied by Ezekiel.
    “This re-building, formally predicted by the Judaizing Mystics of the earlier ages, had become the secret dream of the Patriarchs of the Orient. The Temple of Solomon, re-built and consecrated to the Catholic worship would become, in effect, the Metropolis of the Universe.”
    In my up coming blog I will go into more detail about how the Jesuits and the Illuminati set about to implement the Rapture theory to achieve their goal.. Protestant churches, Evangelical seminaries, and bible talking and Bibleprobe preachers like Hagee, Impe, TD Jakes, Hagin,Copeland,Pat Robinson, C.Dollar, C.Blake, Billy Graham, and masons who promote the rapture have been seduced by Jesuits theology and manipulated by the kabbalist practitioners, thus they are part of the world-wide Anti-Christ conspiracy.

    If you are reading this document, I strongly suggest you print it out because it would be taken off this web site by workers of the prince of darkness. May the Spirit of God lead you into all truth. God Bless.

    The New Israel – Is Israel in Bible Prophecy?

    Millions expect Israel to play a major role in God’s future plan for earth. Could they all be wrong? Is there a conspiracy to deceive God’s people? What is the Biblical evidence concerning modern day Israel?

    Many people today consider the restoration of the Jewish nation in Palestine to be a direct and dramatic fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

    Hal Lindsey’s The Late Great Planet Earth, a phenomenal best seller of the last few decades, and Jerry Jenkins and Tim Lahaye’s Lift Behind, along with Bishop T.D. Jakes declares that the end of the world will come within the lifetime of the generation that saw the founding of the Israeli state in 1948, hereby applying the words of Jesus: “This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.” (Matthew 24:34)

    Coupled with this fascination with Israel is a novel teaching regarding the return of Jesus, called the “secret rapture.” These books and many other speaks for many today who expect God secretly to take the “church” to heaven prior to the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple on its old site where the sacred Muslim shrine, the Dome of the Rock, now stands. According to this position, after the “church” is “raptured” to heaven, there will be seven years of the worst period of famine, bloodshed, and pestilence ever experienced by man. During this great tribulation the focus will be on God’s dealings with the Jews, who are again given the responsibility for the evangelization of the world.

    According to secret-rapture preachers, the battle of Armageddon will climax the end of the seven-year tribulation as the nations of the earth take sides over the future of Israel. When mankind teeters on the brink of incinerating the world, Jesus will return gloriously and save man from self-extinction. At that time Jesus will set up a literal one-thousand-year reign on earth with Jerusalem functioning as the spiritual capital of the world.

    Most evangelical periodicals and pulpits teach this view today, and to those who do not know better, it might appear that this prophetic scenario, known as pretribulationism, has been the traditional teaching of the Christian church since New Testament days. Nothing is further from the truth. Be not deceived.. Did the architects of the creation of modern day Israel have any thing to do with the development of the rapture theory? Where did the Rapture theology originate? Is the crisis in the Middle East and the war in the Iraq have anything to do with the erroneous rapture theory?

    Is there a master conspiracy at work

    According to dispensationalists John Hagee, Jack van Impe, Ken Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, John Walvoord, Grant Jefferies, Tim Lahaye, Benny Hinn, Clarence Larkin, H. Caldwell, TD Jakes and others who teach and preach about the Rapture, Israel has two dispensations, or time periods, in which they functions as God’s special instrument of salvation. Between these two periods of time comes the dispensation of the “church”. The church received a heavenly reward at the time of the rapture, while Israel received an earthly reward at the end of the tribulation.

    There is no support in the New Testament for such an erroneous view.
    The chief reason why the modern state of Israel has no prophetic significance is that after the Jews as a body rejected Jesus as the Messiah, God gave to the Christian church the special privileges, responsibilities, and prerogatives once assigned to the ancient Jews. No longer were the Jews to be His special people with a prophetic destiny.
    Rom.2:28 For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; vs.29 but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.
    All the promises of a glorious kingdom on earth once given through the Jewish prophets to the Jewish people became void because the Jewish people as a nation did not fulfill the conditions of these prophecies. Failing to receive the glory that could have been Israel’s is probably the saddest story in literature. Placed at the crossroads of the ancient world, God furnished them with every facility for becoming the greatest nation on the earth. God wanted to reward Israel with every physical and spiritual blessing as they put into practice the clear-cut principles that He had graciously taught them through His prophets (Deuteronomy 7, 8, 28).
    The Old Testament records the sad story of how the vineyard of Israel produced, not the mature fruit of a Christ-like character, but “wild grapes,” a misinterpretation and perversion of what the God of Israel was really like. “What more was there to do for my vineyard, that I have not done in it? When I looked for it to yield grapes, why did it yield wild grapes?” (Isaiah 5:4 RSV).

    Even when the Jewish nation was suffering the bitter consequences of disobedience during the Babylonian captivity, God mercifully promised that a restored Israel was possible and that there was yet time to recover its special role as His representative on earth – if it would honor His law and submit to His principles. Even then the Jews could have become, if faithful, the head and not the tail, in matters physical and spiritual; all nations would have looked upon Jerusalem as not only the center of wisdom but also the spiritual capital of the world (see Isaiah 45:14; 60:1 – 11).
    When the Jews returned to Palestine after the Babylonian captivity, the promises given to Abraham and expanded through the writings of Moses and other prophets would have been fulfilled; the whole earth would have been alerted for the first advent of Christ, even as the way is being prepared for His second coming today.
    Missed Their Last Opportunity.
    These Old Testament prophecies that picture Israel dwelling in peace and prosperity, with all nations beating a path to her doors, could have been fulfilled 2000 years ago if they had indeed prepared the world for the first coming of Jesus (see Zechariah 8:14). But instead of fulfilling their greatest assignment they missed their last opportunity, and Jesus their Lord finally had to pronounce with irrevocable judgement: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not Behold your house is forsaken and desolate” (Matthew 23:37, 38 RSV).
    Those who regard the establishment of the modern state of Israel as a fulfillment of those Old Testament prophecies overlook the fact that these promises were made either prior to their release from Babylonian captivity or during the rebuilding days soon after their return. God would have fulfilled these promises if Israel had been faithful and obedient to the conditions on which the promises were made.
    Although God promised a “second chance” to Israel after their failure leading up to the Babylonian captivity, He promised no “third chance” to them after their final rejection when their Lord Himself “came to his own home, and his own people received him not” (John 1:11 RSV)
    But God did not give up, even though Israel as a nation had failed Him. Although corporate Israel no longer was to function as God’s special agent, the individual Jews who received and obeyed Jesus Christ would constitute the new organization through which He would now work.
    Paul describes this remarkable transition in Romans 9 to 11, where he appeals to individual Jews (such as himself) to respond to God through Jesus, join those Gentiles who have found in Him the solution to their anxious, sinful condition, and together arouse the world to the simple fact that God wants to make an end to sin and its misery by setting up His eternal kingdom composed of those who have found in Jesus the promised Saviour.
    Those who preach and teach this erroneous Rapture doctrine are purposely misleading multitudes. This doctrine was created by the Jesuits as an anti-reformation and anti-protestant tool to divert attention away from the Catholic and the Pope whom the reformers had identify as the anti-Christ in Revelation. Those who teach and preach the rapture theory are proxies and agents for the Kabbalists and those who want to establish a New World Order (NWO). The Rapture theory has more to do with politics than theology, more to do with mans involvement in world affairs than Gods involvement, more about Zionism than the people of Zion.

    Arthur Koestler’s Book The Thirteenth Tribe..Who Are Modern-day Jew? Are They Semitic? Truth

    The Thirteenth Tribe, Arthur Koestler refutes the idea of a Jewish “race.” Moreover, he says that most Jews of the contemporary world did not come from Palestine and are not even of Semitic origin. His research shows that most Jews originated in what today is the Soviet Union. And that a group of people there became Jews through conversion, on the orders of their king. “The bulk of modern Jewry is not of Palestinian, but of Caucasian origin,” Koestler writes. “Their ancestors came not from the Jordan but from the Volga, not from Canaan but from the Caucasus.”

    Arthur Koestler, a Jewish historian, in his work, “The Thirteenth Tribe”, …. they bow their knee to these super rich Kharzar Zionist communist Jews.

    Israel threatens to unleash ‘holocaust’ in Gaza

    The New Israel – Is Israel in Bible Prophecy?

    This was written before the full extent of the holocaust was known, but that does not alter the fact that the large majority of surviving Jews in the world is of Eastern European – and thus perhaps mainly of Khazar – origin. If so, this would mean that their ancestors came not from the Jordan but from the Volga, not from Canaan but from the Caucasus, once believed to be the cradle of the Aryan race; and that genetically they are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Should this turn out to be the case, then the term “anti-Semitism” would become void of meaning, based on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims. Maybe the two world wars and the Holocaust were pretext for the New Khazaria or Israel hoax.The story of the Khazar Empire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated.(Arthur Koestler,The Thirteenth Tribe, p. 17).

    Old Khazaria existed from about 500 A.D. to about1000 A.D.

    Old Khazaria adopted the religion of Talmudic Judaismabout 740 A.D.

    Khazaria was reborn on May 14, 1948.

    The most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated.

    New Khazaria.

    As long as Apostate Israel (New Khazaria) exist…there will never be any peace in the Middle East. Modern-day Jewry is of Eastern European/Aryan descent and thus they are not Semitic. Let the truth be told everywhere. Why should American Soldiers die to protect a Hoax?
