“I don’t respect people who don’t proselytize. I don’t respect that at all. If you believe that there’s a Heaven and Hell, and people could be going to Hell, or not getting eternal life, or whatever, and you think that, well, it’s not really worth telling ’em this because it would make it socially awkward…
“How much do you have to hate somebody to not proselytize? How much do you have to hate somebody to believe that everlasting ife is possible and not tell them that? I mean, if I believed beyond the shadow of a doubt that a truck was going to hit you and you didn’t believe it — if that truck was bvearing down on you, there’s a certain point where I tackle you. And this is more important than that.”
— Penn Jillette
The Constitution was written for people who had a high view of the Bible and Judeo-Christian principles, so they could practice and preach without obstruction (and even freely proselytize if they so chose).
How swiftly things have changed. School prayer, rights of conscience and Christian expressions of faith and morality have been ruled a federal offense. The Word of Truth is being driven underground and our nation is becoming increasingly more dangerous and threatening as a result. Our government has become especially menacing. Citizens are on guard, as they are being made to feel as if they are the enemy!
The plan of those in command is obvious. Arm every department of the federal government and impose secular will on the people.
Disarm the citizen, especially the constitutional conservative. Strip the citizen of free speech and political dissent. Brainwash the children. And imprison the outspoken preacher and/or patriot (if monetary threats and IRS intimidation efforts don’t prove effective).
The Great Wall of ideology which so divides church and state in our day has been fictitiously applied (in fact, it’s now coming down on the freedom loving faithful).
Hope is all but lost for those sold under godless oppression. It seems as if this oppression is becoming fully realized. Our secularized world is becoming increasingly hostile towards the spiritually convicted Christian.
So while there still is a little time left, I implore thee to “believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.”
This is a warning… a courtesy call.
“The Son of man [Jesus] shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
