Abortion and “institutional racism”

Via Institutional Racism: The term “institutional racism” describes societal patterns that have the net effect of imposing oppressive or otherwise negative conditions against identifiable groups on the basis of race or ethnicity.

The “Christian” Left loves to prattle about “institutional racism,” but if anything they are the worst culprits.  Exhibit A: Their pro-abortion policies.  What could be more oppressive or negative than blacks being killed in the womb at a rate three times that of whites?

Democrats are officially pro-abortion, not pro-choice. Why? Because they want taxpayer-funded abortions, laws requiring all health care plans to cover abortions, and no restrictions on anything, including “partial-birth abortion” (aka infanticide), late term abortions, gender-selection abortions, parental notification, etc.

From their platform:

The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.

Unwanted black human three times more likely to be killed than whites!  Taxpayer-funded abortions — which the Democrats want so badly that they almost lost Obamacare over it, and that which their official platform calls for — would take that rate even higher.

If the situations were reversed and conservatives supported abortion in the same way and liberals opposed it, we’d be hearing nonstop about how racist and genocidal conservatives are.

Whenever the “Christian” Left (or any Leftists) play the pathetic race card, remind them of these facts.

If they aren’t anti-abortion, they aren’t pro-black.  They are the worst perpetrators of “institutional racism.”

Muslims, atheists and the “Christian” Left agree!

They agree on lots.  Among other things, they insist that:

  1. Jesus is not divine
  2. Jesus is not the only way to salvation
  3. The Bible is not the word of God

Here is where they differ: The first two have beliefs consistent with what they call themselves.  The third lie for a living.  Poster boys of the the “Christian” Left: Mark “Jesus is not my God” Sandlin and Chuck “Jesus is not the only way but He sure is a bigot” Currie, and Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis.

Run, don’t walk, from false teachers who deny the essentials of the faith.  Anyone who follows people like that is obviously making a god in his own image.

Beware of “Christian” publishers

Sarah Young’s “Jesus Calling” was full of the nonsense you get from people like the UCC (Unitarians Counterfeiting Christ) and their “God is still speaking” slogan.  Yes, He is still speaking through his eternal word, one for all delivered to the saints.  But he isn’t speaking through those that deny what He said originally and who mock him at every turn.

Via From the Lighthouse Blog NEW BOOKLET TRACT: Changing “Jesus Calling”—Damage Control for a False Christ.

What if you are a major publisher like Thomas Nelson and you suddenly discover that your  mega best-selling book Jesus Calling was inspired by a channeled New Age book? And what if you find out that some of the “messages” your author “received” from her “Jesus” weren’t really from Jesus because they contradict what the real Jesus Christ says in the Bible? And what if your best-selling author has introduced a host of other problems in her book that your usually sharp editors had somehow overlooked? What do you do given these issues are already in the pages of ten million previously published books? If you want to be fair to your readers, you deal honestly with these problems as they are brought to your attention. However, if you are more interested in protecting your product rather than in protecting the truth, you do everything in your power to make these problems disappear. One thing is for sure. Sarah Young and Thomas Nelson have made some of their problems suddenly disappear in recent editions of Jesus Calling—most especially in a special 10th anniversary edition of Jesus Calling released on September 30, 2014.

Catholics treat Mary as if she is the Holy Spirit

And that is a huge error.

I am used to seeing Catholics use arguments for praying to Mary and other “saints” to ask them to pray to God for us.  I think those are un-biblical and anti-biblical for many reasons.  But a friend put a meme on my Facebook page with this that had an even more obvious error:

POPE JOHN PAUL II’S PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF LOURDES
( This prayer was said during the Holy Father’s August 15, 2004 visit to Lourdes, France. The Pope asked her among other things to “be our guide along the paths of the world.”)

Hail Mary, poor and humble Woman, Blessed by the Most High! Virgin of hope, dawn of a new era, We join in your song of praise, to celebrate the Lord’s mercy, to proclaim the coming of the Kingdom and the full liberation of humanity.

Hail Mary, lowly handmaid of the Lord, Glorious Mother of Christ! Faithful Virgin, holy dwelling-place of the Word, Teach us to persevere in listening to the Word, and to be docile to the voice of the Spirit, attentive to his promptings in the depths of our conscience and to his manifestations in the events of history.

Hail Mary, Woman of sorrows, Mother of the living! Virgin spouse beneath the Cross, the new Eve, Be our guide along the paths of the world. Teach us to experience and to spread the love of Christ, to stand with you before the innumerable crosses on which your Son is still crucified.

Hail Mary, woman of faith, First of the disciples! Virgin Mother of the Church, help us always to account for the hope that is in us, with trust in human goodness and the Father’s love. Teach us to build up the world beginning from within: in the depths of silence and prayer, in the joy of fraternal love, in the unique fruitfulness of the Cross.

Holy Mary, Mother of believers, Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us. Amen.

Carefully note these phrases: “Teach us . . .Be our guide . . .help us . . .Teach us . . . ” These are all roles of the Holy Spirit, not Mary. This prayer is blasphemous and an indictment of the Mariolatry of the Roman Catholic Church.  Their other arguments for praying to the dead can be thoroughly refuted as well (see Satan knows where your lost keys are), but this prayer by a Pope alone shows how wrong they are on this topic.

If you ascribe any roles of the Trinity to anyone other the Father, Son or Holy Spirit, it is un-Christian.

P.S. As Neil Kirkland noted in the comments, Muslims make a similar error with Mary, thinking she is part of the Trinity instead of the Holy Spirit.

Fact of history: The “Christian” Left literally fails at economics.

This is not an exaggeration: “Christian” Leftists literally fail at basic economics.  They know as much about it as they do Christian theology.  My dog does better at economics tests than them.

Yet they pretend to understand the economy!

Almost every problem we have in this country can be attributed to 33 years of Reaganomics. It’s a failed philosophy and a failed policy. The race to the bottom for the US economy started in 1981. We’re now just a burned out shell of what we once were. All the value our economy once had has been systematically siphoned to the top and baked in to the top of the cake. Very soon the middle of the cake, which is empty, will collapse if we don’t wake up.

Their hyperbole was so bad that one of their soon-to-be-banned commentators reminded them that Clinton was President for 8 years.  Of course, the Republican Congress kept him from implementing plans, and that along with the PC boom (which had nothing to do with politics, btw), the decade went well.

I’ll add that Obama has been in charge for 6 years, and black unemployment has gotten worse than that of white people.  So he is obviously racist!  In the business world you don’t get to blame your predecessor for 6 years.  You actually have to accomplish things.

Sometimes I think the race card is the only one the “Christian” Left has

race cardThe race card is evil on many levels.  It not only is intellectually bankrupt (because we would have LOVED Obama’a policies if only Hillary had proposed them, right?*), but it shows the malignant, hypocritical nature of those who are the last ones who want racial harmony.  These poverty pimps would be out of business!

The “Christian” Left played it again today.

This hostility and animosity toward this president is, in fact, larger than this president. This is about systems of power and the power of symbols. It is about preserving traditional power (male, old. rich, white) and destroying emerging symbols that threaten that power.

Sadly, their leaders (all white males, by the way!) dupe their followers into drinking the Haterade.  They still haven’t celebrated wins by Mia Love, Joni Ernst, Tim Scott, Nikki Haley and more.  Heck, they still haven’t celebrated Clarence Thomas being on the Supreme Court!  They know we aren’t racist or sexist but they shamelessly play those cards anyway.  But that’s no surprise — they worship the father of lies.

Their timing was spectacular.  I just got back from a funeral for the husband of one of my most trusted friends.  They, and 98% of the people there, are black.  And I loved every bit of the service.  I love diversity in the real sense but not when it comes to the essentials of Christianity.  Those are take-it-or-leave-it, and the “Christian” Left left it along ago.

If the pastors and the people there encountered the “Christian” Left they would eviscerate their faulty anti-Christian theology until their throats were raw.  Everyone who spoke at the service noted that it wasn’t just about Larry (the deceased), it was about how we all must account for our lives and we will either die with Jesus or without him.  We are all racing towards eternity and in the end only the real Jesus will matter.  They noted with boldness that Jesus was the only way.  Their trust in his sovereignty was a joy to behold.

I call the race card the concession speech of the “Christian” Left.  It is evil, fallacious and their go-to move when they are feeling desperate.  You know they are feeling the pressure when they use it, especially after the results of the last election.  Mercifully, more and more blacks are leaving the Democrats’ plantation.  After 50 years of empty promises and nothing but lost jobs and an abortion rate three times that of whites, many are breaking free.  Hallelujah!

*Of course, with Hillary they’d say we disagreed because she’s a she.  And we definitely agreed with everything Bill ever did . . .

How the haters at the “Christian” Left keep people from Christ

First of all, I know God is sovereign and will reach whom He wants to reach when He wants to reach them.  He may even make some of the “Christian” Left spiritually alive someday!

But the haters at the “Christian” Left Facebook page just keep trotting out fallacious memes about how real Christians lead people away from the real church.

8 Ways Christian Fundamentalists Convert People to Agnosticism or Atheism 1.) Gay Baiting; 2.) Prooftexting; 3.) Misogyny; 4.) Hypocrisy; 5.) Disgusting and Immoral Behavior; 6.) Science Denial; 7.) Political Meddling; 8.) Intrusion.

I don’t even know what “gay baiting” means.  The “Christian” Left would lead gays to Hell by telling them they don’t have to repent.

Proof-texting is a funny claim from a group that can’t even get their favorite verses right (i.e., pro-abortion extremists who reflexively refer to the “least of these).

Misogyny?  Nope, we just agree with God on the role of women in church leadership and we think men and women have different roles.

Hypocrisy?  You mean their hypocritical judging of others for judging and hating others for (allegedly) hating?

Disgusting and immoral behavior?  You mean like anal sex?  Or like killing children in the womb?  No, they have a monopoly on those.

Science denial?  We reject the bad philosophy that perverts one sub-branch of one of the dozens of branches of science.  And we fully support the scientific truth that the pro-abortion extremist “Christian” Left denies: That a new human being is created at fertilization.

Political meddling?  More hypocrisy from the politics-disguised-as-religion “Christian” Left.  That’s all they do!  We’d rather preach about Jesus and him crucified and risen.

Intrusion?  Whatever that means!

That’s odd, no one from the “Christian” Left used the “shellfish argument” when Obama quoted the Old Testament

Obama twisted scripture to support his illegal move on illegal aliens.  He pretended that “not oppressing” meant that the Israelites took unlimited people into their land and bent to the customs of the immigrants, while giving them free food/clothes/shelter/healthcare and let them take the jobs of the poorest Israelites and to suppress their wages.

But here’s what else went wrong: If you share an Old Testament verse in context the “Christian” Left will immediately ask why you eat shrimp, don’t stone your kids, etc.  Go to their Facebook page any day and you’ll find something like this (I went there just now and saw more than one like this):

Oh, yes, right. “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.” Leviticus 19:28, yet I am sure that they had shrimp cocktail at the last grape juice party, “These you may eat, of all that are in the waters. Everything in the waters that has fins and scales, whether in the seas or in the rivers, you may eat.” Leviticus 11:9, while they were wearing that cheap cotton/poly blend suit “Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.” Leviticus 19:19

The shrimp / shellfish argument is full of holes but is appealing to many because so few bother to study the passages. I address six serious problems with it in flaws of the shellfish argument. The short version: There were different Hebrew words translated as abomination. They were used differently in the individual verses and were used very differently in broader contexts. The associated sins had radically different consequences and had 100% different treatments in the New Testament. And the claim that Christians are inconsistent if they say homosexual behavior is a sin if they don’t also avoid shellfish, mixed fibers, etc. would mean that they couldn’t complain about bestiality, child sacrifice, adultery, etc.  The longer version.

So what gives?  Does the “Christian” Left take the Old Testament at face value or not?  (Even if you assumed Obama got his passage right, which he didn’t.)

Hypocrites.

The Pope knows stuff.
Conservatives would say: “As long as the government isn’t involved!”
The Pope disagrees, and so do we.

The “Christian” Left had another fluff post on their love affair with the Pope, and their normal straw-man argument that conservatives don’t want any safety net in society. We just know how much abuse occurs in current structure and how it is mainly a vote-buying scheme of the Left.  We also know how the current system traps people for generations and encourages broken families.

More significantly, in their zeal to attach their enemies, they misinterpreted what the Pope said in caption (emphasis added):

YOU pray for the hungry.  Then YOU feed them. . . .

Got that?  He didn’t say, “You beg Caesar to take from neighbor A by force to redistribute to neighbor B.”  But the “Christian” Left sees what they want to see.

They keep quoting their arch-enemy, the anti-abortion, anti-“same-sex marriage,” anti-women priests, pro-divinity of Jesus Pope as he describes how their pro-abortion, pro-LGBTQX, anti-Jesus’ divinity, Bible-mocking, etc. rigid ideologies are indicators of them having a serious illness. Oh, they’ll say they like him because he wants to do some good deeds, but the Rotary Club can do that. I can’t help but notice that the Catholics haven’t sold their hundreds of millions (even billions?) of artwork to help the poor.

The Pope also knows that abortion and “same-sex marriage” are wrong (and he is correct on those!).  He also “knows” that Mariolotry, indulgences, Papal infallibility, purgatory, works-righteousness and more are “true.”

It is going to be a tough break-up when the “Christian” Left discovers what the Pope really believes!

Hopefully they and their new BFF, the Pope, will all repent and believe in the real Gospel one day.

Lies about lies from “Christian” Left

The deadly hypocrisy of the “Christian” Left knows no bounds.  Right after I read How Many Lies Have Democrats Told To Sabotage The War on Terror? I saw this cartoon from their Facebook page.  The additional irony is that the Vietnam was sold on lies — Democrat lies. But the Iraq war was not.  But the “Christian” Left, like their god, relies on lies to advance their agenda.

The “Christian” Left: Not as clever as they think

Just another straw-man argument where they pretend real Christians don’t do these things and only fake Christians like them do.  No one light a match!  Not only do we do these (except for the last one), we do them properly.

Feed the hungry? We do that — with our own money!  The “Christian” Left wants to do it with their neighbors’ money, with Caesar as the armed middleman.

Shelter the homeless?  We do that — with our own money!  The “Christian” Left wants to do it with their neighbors’ money, with Caesar as the armed middleman.

Welcome LEGAL immigrants?  We do that!  And we respect the laws of the country à la Romans 13 that should prevent illegal immigration.  And we favor enforcing laws so we don’t have millions of people pouring into the country to take from others, commit crimes, etc.  One of the biggest fallacies of the “Christian” Left’s pro-illegal immigration vote-buying scheme is that it is in any way like Biblical immigration.  Feel free to point me to where in the Bible it says the Israelites had to bend to the customs of the immigrants, provide them with free food/clothing/shelter/health care, didn’t require them to work, let them take all the jobs of the poor Israelites, etc.

Embrace outsiders?  We do that all the time!  Prison ministry, mission trips, evangelism to anyone who wants the good news, pregnancy center ministries, post-abortion trauma counseling, you name it.  We do it — with our time and money!  Anyone is welcome at our churches, provided they aren’t there rebelling against the word of God.

Share with those in need?  Yep — see above!  Studies show that by any measure — giving time, money or even blood donations — conservatives are more generous.  They just don’t lobby Caesar to “give” your money and count it as a good deed on their part.

Advocate for the marginalized?  Yep, we feel badly for the poor blacks losing jobs and wages to illegal immigrants.  And we feel really badly for the unwanted children crushed and dismembered via abortion with the blessing of the “Christian” Left.

Confront those abusing power?  Yep, we are clearly on record opposing Obama’s IRS, Fast & Furious, illegal immigration invitations and more!  And of course, we oppose the ultimate abuse of power: Killing unwanted children in the womb, like this and this.

Value others’ religions — We completely respect the freedom of religion, though we find the “Christian” Left to be dishonest in claiming the name of Christ.  But we just oppose them in the public square.  We don’t try to use legal means to silence them like they do with our views.  But we would never value non-Christian religions.  They are obviously from Satan — which explains why the “Christian” Left values them!

The “Christian” Left cares about the integrity of some public officials

Just no one with a (D) after their name.  They are complaining about some police officers who expressed solidarity with Darrin Wilson in Ferguson.  I’d say the officers acted unwisely, but I wouldn’t terminate them over it.  But false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way but He sure is a bigot” Currie wants heads to roll!  No compassion, no grace, just destroy their careers to make Chuck happy.

“I call on you both to remove these three officers, and any others who liked their profile pictures, from duty during any protests related to the pending Michael Brown decision. The officers cannot be trusted.” Rev, Chuck Currie wrote to the chief and mayor Monday. “They have outed themselves as people unfit for service.”

Yet Currie doesn’t maintain that standard for Barack “If you like your ____ you can keep it, you stupid Leftist voters” Obama, or for the IRS, of for Eric Holder, or even for himself!  I call on the UCC to remove Chuck Currie for being a blatant wolf in sheep’s clothing who definitely can’t be trusted (I have first hand knowledge of what he is capable of).

The sad and confused “Christian” Left

The “Christian” Left lives and preaches a weird false dichotomy, where either you are in a “church” like Democrat Fred Phelps’ Westboro Baptist or you are in an apostate “Christian” Left” organization.  It never occurs to them that leaving one bad church for another bad church might not be a wise move.

The real church celebrates Jesus as divine.  The “Christian” Left explicitly denies that. One of the false teachers who founded the https://www.facebook.com/TheChristianLeft site is Mark Sandlin, who explicitly and proudly denies the deity of Jesus and the Trinity.

The real church celebrates Jesus as the only way to salvation.  After all, it is “only” taught 100+ times in the word of God. But wolves like false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way but He sure is a bigot” Currie of the UCC deny that and say we have as much to learn from Muslims about Jesus as they do from us.

The real church preaches the real Gospel:

1 Corinthians 15:1–5 Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.

The “Christian” Left teaches a different gospel.  Just ask Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis.

The real church seeks to protect the weak, love their neighbor — regardless of location! — and care for the least of these.  The “Christian” Left are pro-abortion extremists, even defending infanticide (aka “partial-birth abortion”) and wanting to increase abortions via taxpayer-funding.

The real church teaches the truth about God’s design for sex.  The “Christian” Left supports “same-sex marriage” and has nearly identical views to the world. It shows who their real father is.

1 John 2:15-16 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world.

Jude 4 For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

The “Christian” Left is just politics-disguised-as-religion, advancing their pro-abortion and pro-LGBTQX extremism at every turn.  They only refer to Jesus when they are taking verses out of context to support their anti-Christ worldview.

The real church preaches Christ and him crucified for our sins and rising again.  Hallelujah!

Run, don’t walk, from “Christian” Left organizations and false teachers.  Don’t believe their lies, especially the one about how there are only two options for “church.”  Out of the frying pan and into the fire is still a bad strategy.  There is a better way!

A superb use of the “trot out the toddler” argument

One of the best ways to respond to almost an pro-abortion argument is to “trot out the toddler.” Via Stand to Reason:

Many of pro-choice arguments would be unthinkable if applied to a toddler.  It’s a good tactic to “trot out the toddler.”  Show the absurdity of the argument by showing what it would mean if applied to a toddler.  It refocuses the argument on the one question that matters:  What is the unborn?

This is a perfect example used by the mother of a Down Syndrome child when a cashier suggested that she should have aborted the boy.  Via Sometimes I Forget…. .

Like the cashier that gave me sad eyes and spit poison in a whisper,

“I bet you wish you had known before he came out. You know they have a test for that now…”

Shock, horror, hurt and fury coursed through my body. I considered jerking her over the register and beating her senseless. I looked her up and down, I could take her….

Instead I used whit: I smiled a crazy lady smile “I know right?! It’s so much harder to get rid of them once they come out. Believe ME I’ve tried…” Jackpot! Her mouth dropped open and she stared at me in shock. I leaned over the register and whispered to her,

“What you’re saying is that it’s okay for me to kill him while he’s inside, but not outside? In my book there isn’t a difference. For the record, we knew EVERYTHING about him during my pregnancy. He is our son now and he was our son then. There is no way in hell that I would let any harm come to either of my children. Including during the time that they’re so ridiculously considered disposable.
