Why are the “educated” people so blind?

Question posited on FB concerning societal blindness: “Why are most of the “educated” people so blind?”

A retired cop’s perspective subsequent to policing this morally and ethically sick society for 31-years,

America is under God’s wrath and the “educated” and their godlessness, their abortion, their moral relativism/perversion and rebellion to sustainable mores, norms, ethics, are part and parcel as to why they’re “blind” as they seek to destroying the foundation that has under girded America for 244-years.It is the break-down of the American family unit through divorce; single parent households absent a father; abortion; drug abuse/addiction; LGBTQ sexual-gender confusion; a lack of discipline; lack of a work ethic; identity politics; fictitious-obsessive claims of societal racial inequality; the attack on Christianity giving way to a society that embraces moral relativism; having surrendered authority and responsibility relevant to our children to our public schools and institutions of higher learning. It is our public middle schools, high schools and Universities that offer the demonic deceit, brainwashing, through forced instruction in Darwin, Marx, Lenin, revisionist history via godless, progressive, teachers and professors who are liberal traitors to the United States.

Thus far, America has lost the Millennial and Gen-Z generations to communism and atheism via Darwin’s evolutionary theory in the “biological sciences” and Marx/Lenin + revisionist history in the “humanities” and the resultant is American youth brainwashed in atheism-nihilism-naturalism-secularism-progressivism-worthlessness, as these “students” are advocates of infanticide via Roe/73 – sodomy through Obergefell/2015 – communism via Marx-Lenin and an overwhelming majority are not going to “mature” and internalize any sense of patriotism or sustainable mores, norms, ethics, values, as these brainwashed puppets (useful idiots as per Lenin) of the Communist-Globalist worldview will be petulant, perpetual, persistent, enemies of the United States’ Constitutional Republic unless they are driven into the oceans by Civil War 2.0 and the fires of Hell are allowed to become their arbiter.

America has given birth to Her own traitors, Her own enemy and Her own death and America’s Federal Government – its Intel and its bureaucracies, absorbed and influenced by the same godless demons, has morphed into one of the most corrupt institutions in the free World; this, while the Darwinist’-Socialists-Progressives-Communists-Islamist’-Atheists infused their demonism into the soul of America’s posterity right under our noses while America’s Christians and Patriots did NOTHING to stop it. May God have mercy on those who love Him.

Should Christians be Political?

Should Christians be “political?” A Christian stated: “A reminder for Christians that we shouldn’t become political instead we need to be Biblical. Yes voting is important but not as more important than your gospel.”

Christian response to the Christian,I disagree in part…politics is the “in your face” sociological imperative that directs the future of a Nation. When Christians deny or refuse to involve themselves in that which directly affects the health of our Nation and the future of our posterity, they fail God and they fail in their duty to elect representatives that will put forward those policies that glorify God as opposed to glorifying Satan. Democrats in America are the representatives of Satan in Time i.e. infanticide, sodomy, communism, hatred for Christianity; therefore, for a Christian to deny their obligation to fight against this hoard of demons via the voting booth is cowardliness, unfaithfulness and tantamount to apostasy.

The Gospel is under attack by the Left, the Progressive Democrats, the Communists, the Islamist’, in this Nation and you’re remiss in your failure to recognize and internalize this truism. No one is making politics idolatry but we’re in a war for the survival of our Constitutional Republic and anyone with commonsense who knows Jesus as Lord knows that politics is not more relevant than the Scriptures but we have a duty to fight for our God and for the Scriptures and for our posterity and for our Nation’s sustainability and longevity.

Atheist fights against God, a warning to the Atheist…

Atheist serves Satan and wars against God – a warning to the atheist: “Hi there all of you theists with your overactive imaginations. You imagine that Jesus resurrected after being executed, you imagine that Jonah got a free three nights hotel stay in a whale’s mouth, you imagine that the universe is 6,000 years old, you imagine that the violence sanctioned by god in the Old Testament is ok, you imagine that a talking snake was a con man, you imagine that the Bible came directly from god. The Bible is full of contradictions and alterations.”

Christian response,

No, the Bible is NOT “full of contradictions and alterations”…the Canon of Scripture articulates the EXACT words the Holy Spirit desires human kind receive and internalize. The same God who took elements from the unseen Spiritual Realm and fashioned same into matter that can be apprehended by life constrained by Time and physics (Hebrews 11:3), this same God who created the Heavens and the Earth and our genome for cause with rapidity in six-literal 24-hr days (Genesis 1; John 1; Colossians 1) is more than capable of providing His human creation with the words He desires we have so that we can know Him personally, love Him intimately, live with Him eternally.

You are fighting against that which you DO NOT KNOW and you are headed to a most horrific eternity at your last exhalation in this brief life within Time. You are free to reject the Gift of Jesus Christ as your Lord for the mediation of your sin (John 3:16) but when you actively war against our God, you have made yourself His enemy and an ally with Satan and you will reap what you sow in a most horrific fashion; therefore, BE WARNED!

Bad Theological Advice Corrected

Bad theological advice corrected: “The best theological advice I ever got was acknowledging we are ALL hypocrites.”

Christian response,

The “best” theological advice you can receive is the knowledge that you’re a sinner (Romans 3:23) headed to death in Hell (Revelation 20:11-15) because God the Father is NOT going to permit your destructive, unrepentant sin to enter His Kingdom subsequent to the death of your body in Time (Revelation 21:27) – but – God the Father did not leave you in that hopeless condition but interceded on YOUR behalf by sending the Son, Jesus Christ (John 3:16-18), Who is God (Philippians 2:8; John 1; Colossians 2:9) to pay your sin-debt for you…a debt you could NOT pay (John 14:6) and by repenting of your sin (Luke 13:3) and believing in/confessing Jesus as your God and Mediator for your sin (Romans 10:9-10; 1 Timothy 2:5), you can receive forgiveness of sin and find life in Eternity with God, forever (John 11:25). This is the Good News of what God has done for you and it is the very best advice any man, woman or child can receive within the Realm of Time.

Salvation-atonement for sin by obedience to the Law or by Grace through faith in Jesus?

False doctrine of “works salvation” espoused on FB, once again: “We cannot find in the Bible that man can be saved to eternal life without obedience to the Law of Yahweh.”

Christian response,

If obedience to the Law was the standard by which man achieved righteousness with the Father through atonement for sin, all of mankind would be destined to die in Hell because all of mankind is under the condemnation of sin (Romans 5:12-18) for we are all sinners (Romans 3:23) and to violate one-jot or one-tittle of the Law is to violate the whole Law (James 2:10); therefore, the Law cannot save you as it only condemns you via the knowledge of sin (Romans 3:20) void atonement and as sinners, we require an Intercessor who is perfect, sinless, righteous, before God the Father to pay our sin-debt for us (Romans 8:3-4). His Name is Jesus Christ and ONLY by grace (unmerited favor unattainable by human effort) through faith-believing in Jesus as your God and Mediator for your sin will you find atonement for sin and life in Eternity (John 3:16-18; John 14:6).

Your works of obedience are relevant SUBSEQUENT to your confession of Jesus as Lord and receiving the indwelling Holy Spirit as your Seal and Guarantor of relationship with God the Father (Ephesians 1:13-14; Ephesians 2:8-9). Until you have entered into a relationship with the Father by belief-faith in the shed blood of the Son, Jesus Christ, your works of attempted obedience are as a smelly, filthy, bloody, menstrual cloth in the nose of our Holy God (Isaiah 64:6). It is your works of obedience subsequent to your salvation that affirm and validate your confession of Jesus as Lord as true, authentic and it is your desire for obedience to God’s will that substantiates your positioning as “born again” by the Spirit of God (John 3) dwelling within you (Ephesians 1:13-14; John 14:16) as He, the Holy Spirit, walks you in the process of sanctification until your departure from this life within the Realm of Time.

You cannot be saved, your sin will NOT be forgiven, by seeking obedience to a Law or edict or Day or Tradition or Mass but ONLY by grace through faith in the completed work of Jesus Christ at Golgotha (Acts

4:12; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6). “I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly.” Galatians 2:21 (NASB)

How is it possible that a reported 50%+ of the American voting public will vote for abortion, sodomy, communism, in the 2020 election?

As a Christian conservative, former Marine Infantryman NCO; retired 31-year veteran of a major American police department; one who loves God, Family, America, I find it absolutely mind-boggling how such a vast number of the “American” populous supports a political party/a worldview that advocates for the mutilation of babies in the womb up to and beyond the 9th-month of gestation when our Creator and science have clearly affirmed that life begins at conception; supports self-destructive, immoral, LGBTQ sexual behavior that destroys mind, body, soul, of the participant while directly attacking the sustainability of the American family unit and destroying America’s posterity through mass confusion leading to unconscionable rates of youth suicide; supports Marxism-Communism that has proven itself to be infinitely inferior to Capitalism while Marxism is nothing more than a progenitor of centralized governmental tyranny, suffering and death for the masses culminating in a complete surrender of personal freedoms and a debased quality of life.

I  do understand that at least two-to-three-generations of American youth (today’s Millennial and Gen-Z generations thus far) have been completely brainwashed in America’s “progressive” educational institutions; this having manifest through the deliberate removal of Jesus Christ our Lord and the Scriptures from our public schools (Engel v. Vitale – 1962 – Atheist – Madalyn Murray O’Hair) in conjunction with  the infusion of Darwin’s evolutionary theory, Marx and Lenin, revisionist American history, into our classroom curriculum in the early 1960’s, but how has this demonically-based progressive strategy been so incredibly successful in such a relatively short period of time? Is it possible that eschatology is in play and God’s wrath is coming to fruition before our eyes as our Lord is preparing for that Day concerning China-Russia-Islam’s assault on Jerusalem, Israel in conjunction with the weakening of America’s military and monetary might preventing Her from interceding on behalf of Israel in that horrific Day of Tribulation? As one who loves God the Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and His words, I think we’re observing God summing all things up unto Himself as so eloquently prophesied by His servants in the Canon of Scripture. MARANATHA Lord!

Theological discussion concerning the Sabbath and the Moral Law: “We are told the Sabbath is a moral law, as determined by Scripture, but we are given no Biblical, credible, evidence in support of this assertion.”

Christian response,

If you are in Christ by grace through faith, Jesus IS your Sabbath’s rest (Hebrews 4) and Jesus fulfilled the Sabbath (ceremonial law) for us as the Sabbath was given to point the Hebrew Tribes to their Messiah; therefore, please, do not allow anyone to discourage you or condemn you if you don’t observe the Sabbath but choose to observe Sunday or Monday or any other day of the week. God the Father gave the Sabbath edict specifically to the children of Jacob at Sinai as He set them apart to be holy unto Himself for a specific dispensation through whom He would bring forth His Messiah (Genesis 12:3).

The Sabbath Commandment was NEVER given to the Gentiles…NEVER, unless a Gentile desired to abide by the edicts of Judaism as a proselyte. If you debate-discuss religion in these FB forums, you will be confronted by Seventh-Day Adventists, cult members of the Black Hebrew Israelite’s, legalistic Rabbinical Judaizers, but remember that Jesus is our Sabbath (Hebrews 4) and no one is to condemn you for choosing Sunday or any other day to honor and celebrate what God has done for us. Please, do not let anyone steal your freedom in Christ.

Romans 14 (ESV), concerning a Day and Food and Drink,

As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. 2 One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. 3 Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. 4 Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand.5 One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God. 7 For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. 8 For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. 9 For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.10 Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God; 11 for it is written,“As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me,and every tongue shall confess to God.”12 So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.

Do Not Cause Another to Stumble

13 Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother. 14 I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself, but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean. 15 For if your brother is grieved by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. By what you eat, do not destroy the one for whom Christ died. 16 So do not let what you regard as good be spoken of as evil. 17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men. 19 So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.20 Do not, for the sake of food, destroy the work of God. Everything is indeed clean, but it is wrong for anyone to make another stumble by what he eats. 21 It is good not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything that causes your brother to stumble. 22 The faith that you have, keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the one who has no reason to pass judgment on himself for what he approves. 23 But whoever has doubts is condemned if he eats, because the eating is not from faith. For whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.

Can we keep the 10- Commandments and believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior at the same time?”

Theological question on FB:“Can we keep the 10 commandments and believe in Jesus as Lord and savior [at] the same time..?”

Christian response,

You can certainly seek obedience to the Commandments but you’ll never keep them in perfection due to the encumbrance of the sin-nature integral with your decaying flesh (Romans 3:23; Romans 7); but yes, there is nothing wrong with seeking to obey the Commandments as a Christian as long as you’re aware that you cannot find righteousness or atonement or salvation through attempting to keep the Law as the Law only defines sin void any form of atonement (Galatians 2:16); the Law only condemns and cannot save (Romans 3:20).

It is ONLY by repenting of sin (Luke 13:3) and trusting-believing in Jesus Christ as your God and Mediator for your sin (Romans 10:9-10) that one finds righteousness (a right standing) with God the Father (John 14:6) and atonement for our sin through the shed-blood of Messiah Jesus (Matthew 26:28) thereby permitting us access to the Kingdom subsequent to the death of our body in Time (John 3:16-18). Messiah’s blood atonement and faith in same for the forgiveness of our sin is essential as nothing impure is permitted to enter the Kingdom of God (Revelation 21:27).

Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

Abortion Advocate mocks Christianity: a response…

Abortion advocate mocks Christianity, a response:

Dear Atheist-Abortionist-LGBTQ advocate,

Christianity does not forbid prevention of fertilization (contraception) or sex-education when its curriculum is properly oriented for the age group receiving it. Christians demand that you Democrat Communists stop murdering babies in the womb and stop celebrating your sexual perversion in our streets, stop burning our municipalities, stop seeking to de-fund our police, thereby bringing God’s wrath upon our Nation as a whole resulting in mass confusion and the suffering of our posterity. Please, take your Democrat-Communist-abortion-sexual perversity and manic liberalism into the closet where it belongs or leave our Nation and harass someone else as America can only survive with Jesus as our King; so then, go to a Nation or Country that advocates your insanity…we’re sick and tired of your unsustainable worldview and practices that are destroying our posterity and our future.

Atheist mocks the Living God – a Christian response…

Atheist mocks the Living God/a response: “So, what happened then? Did the Jesus God come along and knock off the original Dreamtime God and take over, did he? Well, may you blindly trumpet your God as being the one and only true God but the facts clearly contradict your ill-fated stance. If I were you I would be chucking the Bible in the fire, smear some ochre on my face and start dancing around the fire waving a boomerang.

Christian response,

There was nothing to knock off as there has never been a God other than the true God, the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth, life i.e. Elohim/I AM and it was not until His purpose for Time through His Messiah came to fruition that He identified Himself and separated Himself from the gods of mankind’s imagination. God the Father, from before the creation of Time (2 Timothy 1:9-10), has been focused upon His angles, His relationship with them in the Kingdom. You and I are necessary refuse of a struggle between the forces of good v. evil, a war that was initiated before the beginning of Time, that captures God’s attention and His motives concerning all of Eternity.

When God knew the time was right, He introduced Himself to one (Moses, Exodus 3:14) who would lead His people out of 400-years of bondage and into a Land promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob through whom He would bless every family of the Earth through atonement for sin and life in Eternity to all who believe (Genesis 12:3; John 3:16). It would be through Messiah Yeshua that God the Father would destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8b) through sacrificial love not arbitrary power (Genesis 3:21; 2 Corinthians 5:21) and demonstrate to His faithful angelic creation the horrors of sin and rebellion and the beauty and peace found in righteousness and obedience (John 14:27; Romans 5:1) so that a repeat of the rebellion that initiated our creation would be thwarted by experiential relevance.
