SHIBBOLETHS OF THE DAMNED

avatar

RedState.com bills itself as a “right of center” website — and as is usually the case these days even when the focus is politics — theological discussions are unavoidable. RS’s editor in chief Erick Erickson has posted an article that might save a few other writers the trouble of addressing the common and tiring misuse of the Old Testament during political debates. Here is his opening (we couldn’t resist excerpting to where he bolded the text):

Inevitably in discussions about Christianity, gay rights, the church in general, etc. some well educated fool throws out the shellfish and mixed fabric clothing line.

Leviticus 11:10-11 reads, “But anything in the seas or the rivers that does not have fins and scales, of the swarming creatures in the waters and of the living creatures that are in the waters, is detestable to you. You shall regard them as detestable; you shall not eat any of their flesh, and you shall detest their carcasses.”

Likewise, Leviticus 19:19 reads, “You shall keep my statutes. You shall not let your cattle breed with a different kind. You shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor shall you wear a garment of cloth made of two kinds of material.”

Because Leviticus also condemns homosexuality, whenever this subject comes up and a Christian says that homosexuality is condemned in the Bible, the person in favor of gay rights immediately throws out shellfish and fabric.

In fact, often times the person who throws out the shellfish and mixed fabric line claims to be a Christian — one of those Christians with a mind so open to everything it is full of nothing.

Dear well meaning poseur, atheist, and other people hostile to Christianity — these are shibboleths of the damned. If you throw these out, it is an immediate signal you are more likely than not destined for hell fire.

Muslim Invasion: The Fuse Is Burning

Dr. Don Boys

Muslin Invasion: The Fuse is Burning! is an interesting, informative, and for the politically correct and infuriating read. Islam, Muslims, immigration, Jihad, Sharia, and the war against our civilization, culture, and creed is a present reality. Gutless public officials are selling us short either by complicity with the enemy or due to a doctrinaire commitment to idiotic tolerance ideology. Whatever the case, citizens must stand up against the invasion now before it is to late. The author suggests that the fuse is burning and the results will end in a complete upheaval of America and every free nation, unless we act now. Forget the lame stream media. Forget Obama. Common sense mandates, our very survival demands that we act NOW to keep America from going off the cliff; This book promises to be a life changing read.
