Is Preaching Gospel Now a Hate Crime?
Greetings everyone in these last days on Earth.
I would like to start right off with an article I received just the other day...
> WHO DECLARED OPEN SEASON ON PUBLIC RELIGIOUS SPEECH?
...I find the current hostility to religious evangelism profoundly disturbing. This includes attacks on the missionary activities of the much-maligned Southern Baptists. According to The Seattle Times ("Baptists' high chutzpah," editorial, Sept. 11), which condemned Baptist efforts to convert Jews, "The Baptists should learn to respect the values and privacy of others." A group of religious leaders in Chicago has gone further, recently urging Southern Baptists to cancel plans to send missionaries into their city this coming summer because seeking to convert others "could contribute to a climate conducive to hate crimes." Missionary activity a hate crime? Apparently yes, according to the new, politically correct view of religious liberty being offered up by guardians of a completely secular public arena. According to their view, people are free to believe in their own religion, but they shouldn't try to persuade anybody else of its truth, especially if the other person already has religious beliefs. Some of the greatest minds of Western civilization would have begged to differ. Figures such as Dante, Rembrandt, Bach, Newton, and Dostoyevsky explicitly proclaimed their religious faith in their works. One could even say they "proselytized" for their particular religious views. Yet, civilization was enriched, not destroyed by their advocacy of religious ideas. What would those who propose cleansing religion from our conversations have us discuss instead? Pokemon and Beanie Babies? Banishing religion from our debates merely invites the further trivialization of American life. -By John G. West Jr. is an associate professor of political science at Seattle Pacific University and a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute. Copyright © 2000 The Seattle Times Company
Sharing ones faith with another is now seen as an act that "could contribute to a climate conducive to hate crimes." Is this a surprise people? Were we not prophetically warned of such a thing long ago? Fact is, it's always been the same old story hasn't it? Just as all the prophets of old and Jesus as well as the early Church had to deal with hatred such as this, apparently so shall we. Can you see how the devil is twisting the Truth here though? We do what we do in Love. We share Biblical facts unto all we meet in Love. We warn as many as we can of eternal danger out of Love for them. Yet, somehow WE are the ones that shall be tagged hatemongers.
Matthew 12:34, "O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh."
1 Peter 3:16, "Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ."
This is indeed a ball rolling down a hill that will only gain speed as well as girth. Who do you suppose is the one who started this ball of hatred rolling? Who do you suppose hates all that is Truth? Who do you suppose believes they have everything to gain and nothing to loose if they can only shut the mouths of those that have the Testimony of Jesus Christ? I'll give you 666 guess's people...
> FUNDAMENTALISTS WRONG ABOUT BIBLE, VATICAN SAYS
Vatican City (AP)-- A new Vatican document on how to interpret the Bible condemns the fundamentalist approach of word-for-word literalism as distorting, dangerous and possibly leading to racism. --Associated Press
Can you believe it? The Vatican has twisted the Gospel preached by the Children of God Almighty into a DANGEROUS act! An act they say can actually lead to nothing less than RACISM? RACISM? To preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ exactly as Scriptures define INSTEAD of as Rome defines is now called RACISM? Do you realize what this means friends? All of us that believe the Bible for what it Preaches are now considered RACISTS by Rome! Is this something we should be concerned about? Do you recall my Newsletter entitled, ~ONE WORLD COURT SYSTEM IN ROME~ back in April of 1999...? If not, see this...(nl990406.htm) When this one world court system is set up we will be arrested people. We will be arrested for preaching Biblical facts. Even if we never mention Rome, the Bible that we share with others will now be the reason for our troubles. For it is not our words that Rome declares dangerous. It's is the Word of God they declare as dangerous!
Does this article proclaiming those that speak Biblical facts that PROVE Catholicism error as RACISTS something to be concerned about? Re-read that newsletter. Understand that not only is this world wide court system to be set up in ROME, but the Vatican will have NO ONE to answer to on Earth for decisions generated by this court. And then think about this for a while. This is the general opinion of this very court...
The archbishop of St. Louis said: "Heresy and unbelief are crimes; and in Christian countries, as in Italy and Spain, for instance, where all people are Catholics, and where the catholic reigion is an essential part of the law of the land, they are punished as crimes." ... "Every cardinal,
archbishop, and bishop in the Catholic Church takes an oath of allegiance to the pope, in which occur the following words" "Heretic, schismatics, and rebels to our said lord (the pope), or his aforesaid successors, I will to my utmost persecute and oppose." [Josiah Strong, "Our Country," ch. 5, pars 2-4.]
Some will say that even the Catholic people still trapped in this Church would not sanction such an opinion as this running rampant in their leadership. Yet this is the case people. Not all those trapped in this church will heed the three Angels message and leave this church of doom. Most will remain within, and those that do so have what's considerd a "blind faith" in those that lead them. For loyalty is very important to the Catholic devout. And i'm not talking just a "clubhouse" loyalty either. I'm talking a brain washing, soul stripping, ear plugging, eye blinding loyalty. One that will cause members of your own household to come against you for your faith in Jesus Christ..
"...we should always be ready to accept this principal: I will believe that the white that I see is black, if the hierarchical Church defines it as such." -The Spirit Exercies of St. Ignatius, p. 141, -By Ignatius de Loyola
This is not only a very destructive statement cunningly designed to convince people that evil = good. But it is also a blunt confirmation that the following verse is Biblically sound as well unquestionably accurate...
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12, "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
The Roman Catholic church proclaims that if "they say so" that which is white shall now be considered black by all those that trust them and all they preach. Is it not obvious when the Roman Catholic church proclaims that evil is good that all those trapped within her will accept that as sound teachings of the church? YES! They have been doing so for 2000 years friends. Need I list all the Pagan rituals of Catholicism that are sanctioned 'and believed' holy by the Catholic people merely because their Church leaders say so? Fact is, to preach unto someone that what they see as WHITE is now BLACK is openly stating that you must believe a LIE that they proclaim over and above the obvious truth you actually see with your own eyes. And the other toss of the coin is that they would have you believe that what you know to be Biblically sound Truths shall now be considered racism, hatred, bigotry, and evil! And do the people trapped within this church agree with theology such as this?
Repeating 2 Thessalonians 2:11, "And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:"
If they have made the decision that "white = black" or "pagan = Christianity" then yes, they do agree with the lying priests and their un-Biblical theology. Now... some evidence that proves they preach "white = black" is in order.
> VATICAN CONDEMNS LITERAL INTERPRETATION OF THE BIBLE
VATICAN CITY, Italy - The Vatican criticized a literal interpretation of the Bible and said the fundamentalist approach to scripture was a kind of intellectual suicide. ...It noted that a fundamentalist interpretation of the Bible had been gaining strength. The Vatican is increasingly concerned about the number of Catholics, especially in Latin America, who have abandoned the church for fast-growing fundamentalist sects. The fundamentalist approach is dangerous, for it is attractive to people who look to the Bible for ready answers to the problems of life, the document said. -The Star, 1994 Manila, Philippines

Besides the obvious fact that reading (and believing) the Bible eventually proves Catholicism is BONE EVIL. It is also obvious that the only reason the Vatican is concerned about those of us that Preach the Truth in Scriptures so much so as to proclaim us racisists and dangerous as well as hatemongers is because, "The Vatican is increasingly concerned about the number of Catholics, especially in Latin America, who have abandoned the church for fast-growing fundamentalist sects." You would think they would realize that people are not stupid by now? The simple fact that whenever a "Fundie" (as the Catholic leaders like to call us) shares Scriptural facts with a Catholic they actually leave the Church of Rome. And why do you suppose this occurs? It's simple, Prophecy said they would leave...
Revelation 18:1-4, "And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."
The people ARE coming out of the Whore of Babylon in record numbers today. They are leaving because the Truth is TRULY setting them free, and this is all happening right before the eyes of the Agents of Hell residing in Rome and that angers the Dragon immensely. And was this anger prophecied to occur? Of course. Revelation 12:17 states that, "the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."
The Rome controling Devil is extremely angry with the Children of God at this time because we can actually expose every act he does even BEFORE he does it. We have the Testimony of Jesus Christ coming forth from our very lips. This Testimony can verify all that the truly seeking Christian heart needs to see. There are MANY true Christians trapped in the Roman Church as well as many churches that embrace the lies she has taught. They are finally opening their Bibles in record numbers in these last days and they are LEAVING! This ministry alone has seen many hundreds leave in just the last 2 years I started the website.
So...One question... Where do you suppose all this "hate crime legislation" is leading to? How about a repeat of Catholic History?
"No one may possess the books of the Old and New Testaments in the Romance language, and if anyone possesses them he must turn them over to the local bishop within eight days after the promulgation of this decree, so that they may be burned." -Council of Tarragona D. Lortsch, Histoire de la Bible en France, 1910, pg.14.
"We prohibit laymen possessing copies of the Old and New Testament...We forbid them most severely to have the above books in the popular vernacular." "The lords of the districts shall carefully seek out the heretics in dwellings, hovels, and forests, and even their underground retreats shall be entirely wiped out." -Concil Tolosanum, Pope Gregory IX, Anno. Chr. 1229.
"Unfortunately many of these books were lost during the persecution of the 17th century, and only those books and ancient documents sent to the libraries of Cambridge and Geneva by Pastor Leger were perserved. The Papists took care, after every persecution, to destroy as much of the Waldensean literature as possible. Many of the Barbes were learned men and well versed in the languages and science of the Scriptures. A knowledge of the Bible was the distinctive feature of the ancient, and now the modern Vaudois. Deprived for centuries of a visible church and forced to worship in caves and dens, this intimate knowledge of God's word was their only light. Their school was in the almost inaccessible solitude of the deep mountain gorge called 'Pra Del Tor', and their studies were severe and long-continued, embracing the Latin, Romaunt and Italian languages." -Bompiani - A Short History of the Italian Waldenses
"...it is estimated...an average of more than 40,000 religious murders for every year of the existence of popery." -John Dowling, The History of Romanism, pp.541-542.
(The Papacy was in power 1260 YEARS the 'first' time. Do the math.)
"For professing faith contrary to the teachings of the Church of Rome, History records the martyrdom of more than one hundred million people. A million Waldenses and Albigenses (Swiss and French Protestants) perished during a crusade proclaimed by Pope Innocent III in 1208. Beginning from the establishment of the Jesuits in 1540 to 1580, nine hundred thousand were destroyed. One hundred and fifty thousand perished by the Inquisition in thirty years. Within the space of thirty-eight years after the edict of Charles V against the Protestants, fifty thousand persons were hanged, beheaded or burned alive for heresy. Eighteen thousand more perished during the administration of the Duke of Alva in five and half years." -Brief Bible Readings, pg.16.
"On August 24, 1527, Roman Catholics in France, by prearranged plan, under Jesuit influence, murdered 70,000 Protestants within the space of two months. The Pope rejoiced when he heard the news of the successful outcome." -Western Watchman, Nov.21, 1912 (Catholic)
"There was no village of the Vaudois valleys but had its martyrs. The Waldenses were burned; they were cast into damp and horrid dungeons; they were smothered in crowds in mountain caverns, mothers and babes, and old men and women together; they were sent out into exile in the winter night, unclothed and unfed, to climb the snowy mountains; they were hurled over the rocks; their houses and lands were taken from them; their children were stolen to be indoctrinated with the religion which they abhorred. Rapacious individuals were sent among them to strip them of their property, to persecute and exterminate them. Thousands of heretics" or Waldenses, "old men, women and children, were hung, quartered, broken upon the wheel, or burned alive and their property confiscated for the benefit of the king, and Holy See." -Thompson - The Papacy and the Civil Power
Keep in mind people. Those of us that embrace Bible doctrine as Truth are considered "heretics" by this soon to be One World Court in Rome. We are considered "racists, bigots, hatemongers, and dangerous" by this very court as well. And we are considered those that commit imprisonable "hate crimes" by this very same court.
Where's it leading...?
> CLINTON RENEWS DRIVE TO GET CONGRESS TO EXPAND HATE-CRIMES LAW
Frustrated by two years of failure, President Clinton made an impassioned plea Friday night for Congress to pass a new hate-crime law to combat violence prompted by a victim's sexual orientation, gender or disability. "Hate crimes victimize not only the victim but they victimize society as a whole in a special way," the president said, "because they contradict the very idea of America we are trying to build."
> National 'Day of Prayer, Fasting' Fails in House
A non-binding resolution calling for a national day of prayer and fasting failed in the House yesterday, as Congress waded once again into volatile issues of religion and politics. The measure was the latest congressional response to a series of highly publicized school shootings and hate crimes. Sponsored by Rep. Helen Chenoweth (R-Idaho), the resolution recommended that national, state and local leaders "call the people they serve to observe a day of solemn prayer, fasting and humiliation before God." -By Juliet Eilperin Washington Post Staff Writer Wednesday, June 30, 1999; Page A04 http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/WPcap/1999-06/30/044r-063099-idx.html
It's just another "Day of rest" approach like Bill LB1334 which also pleads for a "day or rest." The Catholic controlled Congress wants Sunday to be made into LAW and they will continue to push laws forward that eventually WILL be passed. Prophecy gaurantees it! So don't be caught with your spiritual guard down! Notice a small excerpt of the. H. CON. RES. 94 that failed. Notice the "wording" if you will...
Whereas it is the necessary duty of the people of this Nation not only to humbly offer up our prayers and needs to Almighty God, but also in a solemn and public manner to confess our shortcomings; Whereas it is incumbent on all public bodies, as well as private persons, to revere and rely on God Almighty for our day-to-day existence, as well as to follow the charge to love and serve one another; Whereas we have witnessed the rejection of Godís love through gratuitous violence and mayhem, hate, abuse, exploitation, abandonment, and other harms, much of which has been directed at the most vulnerable of our society, our children; Whereas oppression, violence, cultural and ethnic division, strife, and murder have stained our communities and the world; Whereas we are compelled to remind the people of the United States of the events that currently burden the hearts of the people...-H. CON. RES. 94
I don't want to comment on the obvious stomping of the Biblical doctrine of "SEPERATION OF CHURCH & STATE" here because that would become another Newsletter. Did you notice the word "hate?" Now let me ask you this. If I stand on a street corner passing out tracts that Scripturally, Historically, and Prophetically prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Roman Catholic Church is the haven of Antichrist incarnate do you suppose I would be arrested for committing a HATE crime? Indeed, that is what is up and coming people. SO BE IT! For this too is up and coming...
> They will be deprived of the right to buy or sell
The following article is a quote from a Nazarene magazine called Newswatch. In its 1994 November/December issue, 4-5, it read, "The French magazine, Foy et Rai, reported from the United Nations Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, that plans are worked out to dissolve the UN to make way for a World Tribunal. . . . This project and this plan provides for a total unification of church and state, and also provides for a single form of worship. The appointed day for all people will be Sunday. The number received by the people will promise the right to buy or sell.
"At the end of this statement, a Christian rose and asked the speaker, 'What happens to the minorities who will not accept this plan?' The Christian was told, 'Their number will be canceled with a black line and they will be deprived of the right to buy or sell and will thus be forced to destruction.' "
Too far fetched you say? Well take a gander at this article...
June 1997 American stations ABC & NBC report: Clinton has initiated legislation in 1998 to make SUNDAY the "national family day" to bring Americans together. He also mentioned Jews and Seventh Day Adventists with other minority groups might oppose the idea.
Let me ask you this. Legislation is being considered in this area correct? Therefore do you believe that there will be those out their "testing" the waters so to speak to see how the general population will take such a law as this? Notice the following sign posted outside city hall in Rochester Hill, Mi.
NOTICE: WORK PERMITTED ONLY DURING THE HOURS OF 7 AM TO 8 PM MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY. SUNDAY & HOLIDAY WORK WITHOUT SPECIAL WRITTEN PERMISSION FROM THE MAYOR IS PROHIBITED BY CITY ORDINANCE!
-Sign Posted in Rochester Hill, Michigan, USA. 1998
Do you suppose they will try this out as law someplace?
LAW TO KEEP SABBATH HOLY
A BILL to be introduced in the Morobe Tutumang soon to enforce Sunday as a day of worship for all in the province. The proposed Bill expected to draw debate because it seeks to ban all activities - social and economin on Sunday. The law will carry penalty provisions for operators and agencies caught voilating it. Mr Wenge said yesterday the move was radical one but one that was based on Christian principals and values. The Bill is being drafted for tabling in the provincial assembly in its first session next year [Post Courier NewsPaper Oct. 6, 1998 Papua New Guinea]
Was this a springboard for us here in the USA? Notice the actual LAW that was passed 1-1-99...
Rhode Island House Bill 98H8949
AN ACT RELATING TO HOLIDAYS AND DAYS OF SPECIAL OBSERVANCE -- WORK PERMITS ON SUNDAYS
COMMITTEE: House Labor
EMAIL SUBJECT: "../SUBJECT/447.HTM"SUNDAY SALES

CITATION NUMBERS: 25-3-1, 25-3-2, 25-3-3, 25-3-4
LAW NUMBER: Chapter 409
This act would allow employers to pay the normal rate of pay to employees who work on Sundays as part of their normal forty (40) hour workweeks. This act would take effect on January 1, 1999. (Emphasis added)
What is the final result for those that would come against us that preach that which is bold and Biblical Truth?
2 Peter 2:12, "But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;"
The Almighty will have His GREAT & TERRIBLE day. A frien of this ministry made a comment the other day concerning this very topic that I would like to share with you. She said...
"Chance is just a six-letter word for providence! God is so-o-o-o good! I caught a bit of ABC's prime-time news program on Thursday (I think). It's the one that has Jane Pauly hosting with Stone Phillips. Can't remember the name 'cause they're all pretty much the same! Anyway, one of their reporters, a young fellow who reports fair and asks a lot of good questions was reporting on what happened to that Rocker fellow. The baseball player who made the dum, bigoted, hateful remarks. The Commissioner of Baseball has suspended him for two months and made him go in for psychiatric evaluation. The reporter likened it to how Russia deals with people who express their personal thoughts that don't agree with government ideals. The reporter had a really valid point. He showed two other players who were CONVICTED of abusing their spouse and girlfriend and they weren't suspended or made to undergo mental evaluations. And their crimes were ACTIONS not THOUGHTS. Which is more dangerous? And to who? Well, we know don't we, who rule this world and wants to control everything! It is certainly scary! It's so nice that God gives signs of "coming attractions"!! -Susan
AMEN Susan! Amen!

> WACO II? Temple Baptist in Indianapolis-Confrontation
Source: Alex Jones radio show

FreeRepublic.com "A Conservative News Forum"
A Confrontation is shaping up in Indianapolis as Temple Baptist Church of Indianapolis prepares to defy a court order to vacate. The 7th Circuit Court has order the church to vacate and allow the government to confiscate the church on April 10, as a result of failure to pay/withhold taxes. The church is not a 501c3 and has not registered as a church or school, but has continued to operate as a free and independent church and school.
Upon receiving the court order, the Indiana militia began to look into the matter. Last night, it was announced that the Kentucky and Ohio militia will join with Indiana to defend the church. Today, on the Alex Jones radio show, there were suggestions that the Tennessee and Michigan militias would also join the effort.
The Baptist Temple Church, 19 Judicial District 2711 SE, Indianapolis, has a Sunday attendance of about 1000. The former pastor of 50 years, Pastor Greg Dixon, was on the Alex Jones show today to discuss the matter. His son is currently the pastor of the church. Pastor Dixon said that this is a free country, with free speech and freedom of religion. He said the people of the congregation do not plan to leave their church. He also said that Janet Reno is actually Johnny Reno, that anyone can see that she is a man.
Most likely, it's such remarks that have failed to endear the Pastor to the feds who have obviously targeted this church for an April, 2000 confrontation - yes, it's April once again.
I don't have any additional information on this matter. If you want more information, you can call the church at 317-783-6753. 1 Posted on 02/22/2000 10:40:31 PST by blackcat
