United "STATE" Church of America!?


Hello everyone...   Something occured the other day within the US Government that effects each and every one of us in this these United States of America. The seperation of Church and State appears to be no more a valid wall preventing the Government of this land from enforcing what it prefers to be the Religion of choice. This I am afraid is the birth pangs of something that mimicks that of Daniel chapter three. Nebuchadneezer, the King and Government of that day made declaration that there was now a Religion that the Government was going to enforce upon mankind for the betterment of the Nation. And anyone found worshipping a God outside of what the State considered valid would be thrown into the furnace of fire. The Bible is very clear about the freedom we have all been blessed with in the area of deciding WHO we will choose as our God. (Joshua 24:15) Even if everyone chooses to deny the very God that created them, God Almighty allows them this choice. He allowed Adam and Eve to make the choice they made in regards to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil did He not? The Almighty is not one to force His desires upon us, that is the Devil's method. Fact is people, if you look to the past you will see that every single time the State got involved in the matters of God it was devastating to the people they governed. Persecutions, torture, and death were ALWAYS the result. Take a peek in the past and see what transpired after the Government was "persuaded" to enforce religious laws upon the people...

Some may say that this will never occur in these modern times. Some will say this is an absolute impossibility. I say unto them look upon these articles of just a few years ago. See how this modern day Government of ours is looking to break down the wall that seperates the Church from the State. Why do they seek to do this you ask? C-O-N-T-R-O-L! What better way to get a people of a nation to do as their Government desires. All one needs do is convince the people that their GOD will be angry with them if they choose to deny the laws before them.

"For 15 years, the court has been trying to water down the strict separation of church and state." During the past two terms, the court has sought in its opinions to "accommodate" religion in state-supported activities as long as the practice does not represent a "real danger" of establishment of a state church.

Still, some may say that this is not going to happen because the "Christians" of this world will not allow it. I say unto them look at the laws that Christians have not objected against that have since passed. These laws have allowed the murder of millions of children in abortion clinics coast to coast. Plus, look at the laws the Homosexual community has been able to push through right under our noses as well? I can actually talk for hours on the laws that are now on the books in this nation that will make your Christian hair curl! Yet, still, some may say that the only way anything like this to become a reality is to have a large "Christian" Church involved in unison with this movement. Well my friends there is just such a Church doing this...   _____________________________________________________________________________________   "Consequently, John Paul was criticized by liberal and moderate politicians and newspapers for transgressing the boundary between church and state."

_______________________________________________________________________________________  

Think about that for a moment. Every single church on planet earth looks upon the seperation of Church and State as a bad thing. They see their very foundations uprooted when the State threatens to step in and speak "for" them EXCEPT the Roman Catholic Church. And why is this? Because this church is exactly as Daniel AND Revelation stated the Beast would be. Daniel states in Daniel 7:24 that the Beast would be diverse from all the other 10 kingdoms. The Papacy fits this description to the "T" in that it is the ONLY "religious" kingdom to date making it totally "diverse" from the other 10 secular kingdoms. And then Revelation tells us that the Beast would be BOTH a "strong political power" (Revelation 13:3,7) as well as a "strong religious power" (Revelation 13:3,8) Is this not the makeup of the Roman Church? Is it not a STRONG STATE as well as a STRONG CHURCH? That is why they seek to join the Government in this venture for the Roman Church IS a government within itself as well as a Church. It has the "best" of both worlds and it can benefit greatly by this movement. And now we see the Government of the USA that has a majority of Catholics within Congress is seeking to create a State Church. What is the evidence of this you ask...?

House OKs Posting of 10 Commandments  By David Espo
Associated Press Writer
Thursday, June 17, 1999; 9:37 p.m. EDT   WASHINGTON (AP) -- Searching for a way to curb youth violence, the House approved legislation Thursday night permitting the Ten Commandments to be posted in schools and other state and local facilities and moved toward a showdown over gun control. The vote was 287-139 for the anti-violence measure, which includes a variety of get-tough provisions related to juvenile crime as well as the declaration permitting states to display the Biblical commandments. Critics said that measure was unconstitutional, but its sponsor, Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Ala., countered that it would ``promote morality and work toward an end of children killing children.''

The Ten Commandments bill
WorldNetDaily
Friday June 18, 1999   Perhaps members should read the Commandments first. For they instruct us not to put any other gods before the One who handed them to Moses on Mount Sinai. If any believe government has the power to make laws regulating the ultimate law, they are sadly mistaken. The Ten Commandments form the very basis of western law. That's why you find them inscribed in massive form in the chambers of the U.S. Supreme Court. For the Supreme Court is not supreme at all -- but rather subject to the laws of the universe as prescribed by the Supreme Being. It is vanity to think Congress or the courts have the power to mandate posting the Ten Commandments one day and remove them the next.

The 1st Amendment of the US Constitution BLUNTLY STATES...  

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
_____________________________________________________________________________________   I understand that the Ten Commandments are indeed valid and necessary for all of mankind to keep, for it is plainly written in the NEW Testament that "For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;" (Romans 2:12) Therefore we should, "So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty." (James 2:12) The problem I see here is that of a very UnChristlike and secular Government is now seeking to preach unto the people of this nation as to what they feel is moral and upright. It is here I see a major problem for "the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." (1 Corinthians 2:14) So, how is it possible for a Government that is in the business of so much overwhelming corruption, INCLUDING trampling upon it's own Constitution, to be able to speak unto us the Oracles of God? For many of our officials within this Government that vote for and pass evil and unjust laws are sharing with us fruits that are NOT of Christian origin. Therefore how can they know what is of God and what is not?   Mark 12:13-17, "And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.  And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?  Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.  And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar's.  And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him."   There is to be a Biblical seperation of Church and State simply because ENFORCED worship is not what the Almighty would have us do.  For if this was the plan of God Almighty, Lucifer would never had made it to this planet. He would have been destroyed the moment he enacted the revolt in Heaven. (Revelation 12:7) This of course would have led the Angels to believe that God Almighty was going to KILL ANYONE that would not do as He commands, and that would have created a forced worship system within the Kingdom of God. But our God is a God of mercy, He is a God that would have us choose to worship Him. (Joshua 24:15) He is a God that allows us to SEE good and evil so as to know the difference. He allows US to make the choice as to which path we will choose to live on. He knows that if He forces us we will not be giving genuine worship unto Him. We will be worshipping Him out of fear of death. And this is not the character of the Creator God. Fact is...   2 Peter 3:9, "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."   For the State to think that it can enforce the Laws of God upon mankind is an act that is not only prophetic of this time in regards to the mark of the Beast, but it is also a wake up call for those "5" Virgins to stand up WITH sufficient Oil and go forth. The day is upon us people. Soon the Laws of this land will see a "State Church" come forth. And what "Church" do you believe will be the States choice?

_________________________________________________________________________  

Did you notice the quote... "What protection would they have against a Catholic state." Soon there will come a day when a Global disastor will take place. (Y2K?) This will allow for the Catholic Church to do as it has planned on doing all along. This Government will help the Roman Catholic Church to enforce her laws as laws of the land (as is NOW the case in Europe) so as to prevent further disastors just as prophecy stated the "lamb horned beast" (USA) would do. (Revelation 13:11,12) The problem is the Catholic church has re-written the Laws of God to further its desires over and above the desires of God. Daniel saw this day coming long before any of us were ever born. He states that the Beast will "think to change times and laws" (Daniel 7:25) Did the Roman Church do this you ask...?
__________________________________________________________________________
THE LAW CHANGED:  

1.) In the Catechism of the Roman Church you will find the SECOND COMMANDMENT omitted. Why? This is the commandment dealing with statues and the veneration and or worship of images.  

2.) You will also find the fourth commandment (7th day Sabbath) drastically rewritten from 94 words down to 8 words. This was done to make "any" day appear to be ok to be used as Sabbath. How? All references to the day being the SEVENTH DAY was removed.  

3.) Then you will see the final "change to God's Law" in commandment number 10. It has been divided to make it appear to be both #9 as well as #10. This was done to make up for the gap created when they removed commandment #2. You will also notice that the Sabbath commandment is no longer #4. It was dragged up to the third position to make up for the gap caused by omitting number 2.  

THE TIMES CHANGED:  

4.) The Sabbath was changed from the SEVENTH DAY to the FIRST DAY regardless of the fact that there is not one single verse in the Bible that states God Almighty allowed this. And ALL denominations on Earth including the Roman Church agree with that fact. (Email me for the list of quotes)  

5.) The Roman Church has also changed the "timing" for the beginning and closing hours of the Sabbath as well as every other day of the week. Instead of acknowledging the Sabbath from SUNDOWN Friday to SUNDOWN Saturday as God Almighty stipulates in Leviticus 23:32. The Roman Church adopted the Pagan Roman custom of MIDNIGHT Saturday to MIDNIGHT Sunday as their Sabbath.   The Almighty predicted openly in Daniel 7:25 that the Beast would do just that. So, with that in mind. WHO do you choose to believe? Man? or God?   As far as the media is concerned, they are looking to convice you to obey MAN...

GROUP OF WESTERN CHRISTIANS APOLOGIZE FOR CRUSADES
May 2, 1999
Web posted at: 8:34 PM EDT (0034 GMT)   Crusaders marching through the Rhine Valley slaughtered Jews who refused to convert to Christianity and left a similar wake of destruction in Eastern Orthodox and Muslim centers along the way to their goal of liberating the region where Jesus lived from non-Christian rulers.   The Crusaders were urged forward by Roman Catholic leaders longing for the jewel of Jerusalem -- and seeking to consolidate recent political gains in Europe.

AGAIN the Roman Catholic Church ADMITS to the millions of deaths in the GREAT Tribulation period that Jesus spoke of and STILL many Catholics defend this church to this day as the church Jesus started?? Would Jesus condone torture and murder as a method of evangelization? If not then HOW can this be the Church that Jesus said "The gates of hell will not prevail against?" (Matthew 16:18)

JOHN PAUL II REAFFIRMS PRIESTLY CELIBACY   VATICAN CITY, JUN 1 (ZENIT).-

In his address to the Bishops of Cameroon, present in Rome for their visit "ad limina apostolorum," John Paul II took up the question of priestly celibacy, its reasons and its meaning. "Let your priests not be discouraged!" he began by saying, understanding that fidelity to the priestly vocation is not easy. "In contemporary society there are many obstacles to faithfully living the commitments made on the day of ordination; there are also many obstacles that impede thinking of the priesthood as a service to God, the Church, and the world." In order to understand the priestly vocation, it is necessary to think of the priesthood as a "total gift of self." This total self-giving has its clearest expression in "celibacy, which is a grace from the Lord that all priests must make efforts to live," the Holy Father said.

http://www.catholic.org/media/news/current.html#John Paul  

====================================================

What John Paul is actually reaffirming is that this is NOT the Church Jesus started. For it is plainly stated that... "A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife..." (1 Timothy 3:2) The Bible is plain, if you desire the office of Bishop (Pastor) you CAN be married. In fact the Bible says it is BETTER to be married because, "if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn." (1 Corinthians 7:9) Yet the pope INSISTS on celibacy?

CATHOLIC CHURCH TEACHES MASTERBATION AND HOMOSEXUALITY  

NBC DATELINE 6-29-98 @ 9:00pm REPORTS:
Roman Catholic Church / School in Ft. Lauderdale Florida expelled all the children from the family of Mr & Mrs Anderson as well as excommunicate the Andersons from the Roman catholic church. Why? The Andersons did not want their Church to teach their children the aspects of "Masterbation & Homoexulaity" in their school curriculum along with other very objectional materials. The Andersons have tried for three years to get them to stop. They even tried holding a prayer vigil on the property of the Church. Their Roman catholic Church had the police remove them from the property for praying. The Andersons are actually very devout catholics. Mr and Mrs Anderson even participated in the Mass as Eucharistic ministers. And this is how they are treated because they choose not to allow their children to be taught things that sinful and very disgusting.  

No comment! Just plain disgust!

Feel your relationship with the Almighty needs a little help? Worried that your busy schedule isn't leaving enough time for prayer?

A minimum donation of $100 (62) is suggested, but most of the 2,500 people who have signed up so far give considerably more.

Congress should rescind parts of its four-year ban on spending federal money for embryonic research, President Clinton's top advisory panel on medical ethics says in a draft report.

At least 75 members of Congress have said all stem-cell research violates the money ban, which has been extended annually since its enactment in 1994.

President Clinton doesn't need to sign an executive order to start a full-scale gun grab. He doesn't need to declare martial law if he wants to use the armed forces to deal with public unrest. And if he figures a state government isn't doing all it should to enforce some federal law that nobody likes, he can use federal troops to make certain that the law is complied with -- even if the governor and everyone living in the state are adamantly opposed to it. He can do all these things on his own, without seeking advice or approval from Congress.

A NEW KIND OF BUSTOP FOR RELIGIOUS SPEECH
 
2 get the boot for Christian conversation
--World Magazine
Cultural hostility to Christian speech may have reached its most absurd extreme: A Seattle bus driver, unhappy with two passengers' conversation about God, booted them. One of the two, a pregnant mother, in a hurry to get home to care for her two other children, had to walk nearly a mile alongside rush-hour traffic-in the rain. How it all happened will be the subject of litigation: She says she'll never stop talking about God, so unless something changes, her free-speech rights don't even merit a seat in the back of the bus.
