Another school shooting in America. Another call from the so-called “progressives’ for gun control, or the outright confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens. “Remove the guns,” they say, “to keep our children safe!”
Another lie from the lying left. If the truth be told, the liberal, humanist, socialist “progressives” couldn’t care less about children. They have an agenda — to disarm Americans in order to institute their UN-sanctioned “one-world government,” and a “new world order.” In other words, tyranny. Tyrants in control, enslaving the people. Game over.
Many will say I am putting forth a conspiracy theory. But many are ignorant of the wicked devices of our enemy, and many are ignorant of what is really, truly going on in this world. They’d rather follow and believe the “fake news” of the mainstream media than delve deeper into the real truth of this evil agenda. And yes, there IS an evil agenda.
Look at our public schools. No longer do we teach “civics” classes in public schools, because the powers-that-be must make sure our kids remain ignorant of our history and our rule of law. Kids have no idea about our Constitution or Bill of Rights, the Revolutionary War, our fight for Independence. That “Greatest Generation” that fought World War 2 to free the world from tyrants is quickly fading into history, no longer able to tell their stories. And our public schools do not tell their stories anymore either. In fact, if any American History is taught in public schools at all anymore, it has been “twisted,” “spun,” and “revised,” to make America the Great Evil of the world.
We send our kids to the public schools — or should I say the “Government Indoctrination Centers” — and after 12 years, they hold the exact opposite views on cultural, social and moral issues that we hold. And after four more years in government universities, we no longer even recognize our kids at all. What is wrong with us? Do we not have eyes to see what is happening right before us? Tell me we’re smarter than that.
It’s been said that public university professors have two main goals for incoming freshment: 1) get the kids to reject their Christian faith — if they have any faith left at all. And 2) get the kids to question their sexuality, their gender, and encourage them to “experiment.” No longer is there any such thing as “absolute truth.” Now, it is “moral relativism.” “What’s right for you may not be right for me, and that’s ok,” they say — unless of course, “what’s right for me” happens to be traditional family values, faith in God and a love for the country called “America” that used to be. Then, of course, you are a “hateful, racist bigot” and your opinion counts for nothing. You must be silenced!
So now we’re in the midst of yet another push for the removal of guns from the hands of Americans. Every day, I am seeing more and more signs in public places stating these are “Gun Free Zones.” No guns permitted. How’s that working for us? All the mass shootings that have taken place in recent years have happened in “Gun Free Zones.” Apparently, those bent
on wreaking havoc and taking lives don’t read the signs. These “Gun Free Zones” are nothing more than shooting galleries for the mentally disturbed, the disgruntled, the demonically-possessed. When you pass laws to ban guns, I assure you, the only ones with the guns will be the tyrannical government, the police and the criminals. Guns are not the problem, folks!
Let’s just look for a minute at our public schools. I graduated from high school in 1983, 35 years ago. I can tell you, even at my small rural school, even way back then, it was a cesspool of immorality. Bullying was rampant, beyond belief. Filthy, vulgar, foul language and blasphemy filled the hallways, the lunch room and even the classrooms. That was 35-40 years ago. I cannot even imagine what it must be like today. Because at that time, things like pornography were “hush hush,” even though it existed. Homosexuality was shameful. People did not celebrate it with pride — much less jump on the bandwagon at the urging of their teachers and try it out for themselves to see if it might be “right for them.” In grade school, we still stood and recited the Pledge of Allegiance every morning. We didn’t indoctrinate and twist young minds into joining “AntiFa.” How far we have fallen! Our children, my friends, are in grave danger in our country today. Not just from rogue shooters — but especially from those we trust — the school boards, the teachers, and those pulling the strings behind the scenes.
Today we have “drag queens” leading story time for pre-school-age children in public schools and libraries, and the parents not only accept this, they embrace it, all in the name of “diversity.” Today our kids readily accept the idea that abortion is simply a “woman’s right to choose,” and that Planned Parenthood is really all about “women’s healthcare!” Give me a break! Today, our kids not only have to deal with all the things We had to deal with in school… they also have the added burden now of deciding for themselves whether they are male or female — any input on this matter from parents is strictly prohibited, as we have seen in recent news stories. We have lost our collective minds, reaping what we have sowed.
In 1962 the US Supreme Court banned prayer in public schools. A year later, it banned the reading of the Bible in public schools. Where were the Christian parents? Why were they not outraged enough to stand up and fight — for morality, for righteousness, for their children and their Savior? Christians did nothing. Imagine if the day after prayer was banned in public schools if every dad went to every public school principal and in righteous anger declared that this will not stand! We may have had a chance. But Christians did nothing.
And so today, we scratch our heads and wonder what can be done about all the killings in the public schools. God was tossed out on His ear a generation ago; so now we only seek Him after another bunch of our kids are shot down in cold blood. Then we gather and hold “prayer vigils,” holding candles while we weep. But many don’t even know what prayer is. They stand and hold a candle, but there’s no repentance, no real understanding of what we are so guilty of as a nation. We are so very lost.
America is suffering under what the Bible calls “Blood guiltiness.” In another infamous case where the US Supreme Court was unlawfully allowed to “make a law,” it declared, in 1973 that women were now legally able to have their own children murdered. And the blood of the innocent little babies, knit together by God Himself in their mothers’ wombs cries out from the ground to Almighty God. We are guilty of shedding innocent blood. Ezekiel 22, “You have become guilty by the blood that you have shed, and defiled by the idols that you have made, and you have brought your days near, the appointed time of your years has come. Therefore,
I have made you a reproach to the nations, and a mockery to all the countries.” These are the words of the Lord.
Need some more? Pslam 106, “They poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was polluted with blood.” Lamentations 4, “How the precious children of Zion, once worth their weight in gold, are now considered as pots of clay, the work of a potter’s hands.” In other words, common, disposable… garbage. These are our children, people! These are our babies! Their blood cries out from the ground, as did the blood of Abel, to Almighty God. And as we have so cavalierly shed the blood of 60 million innocent babies in this nation in the last generation, though we cannot see it, because it is kept behind closed doors, out of sight, a “taboo” subject we are never allowed to discuss, their blood is running like rivers in our streets, and so why are we surprised when we are reaping so much violence and bloodshed elsewhere? Frankly, I’m surprised we aren’t seeing more. Frankly, I’m surprised the Lord has not yet poured out His full wrath on this nation and destroyed it as He did Sodom.
Yes, I am angry! I am angry that you can go to just about any Christian church in America today — and you can go there for the next 40 years, and you will never hear any pastor touch these subjects with a ten-foot pole, for fear of offending some in the pews, for fear of talking “politics” from the pulpit. For fear of being “distasteful.” For fear of the weekly “take” falling short in the collection plate. It’s sick! And yes, I am angry. “As go the pulpits, so goes the nation.” Our Pastors, who refuse to teach, who refuse to preach the whole counsel of God, straining at a gnat while swallowing a camel, neglecting entirely the weightier matters of the law, while instead talking about “how to have a sexy marriage,” “how to be wise stewards,” “why we need to ‘tithe’ in order to be good Christians,” “God’s love for all mankind, how we’re all God’s children….” The list could go on, but I … …just can’t.
Guns are not our problem, folks. Our problem is the fact that we, as a nation, have rejected God. You may not realize this if you live in a Christian “bubble” like many do. But you would be amazed at how many people in America today know absolutely nothing about God, about His Word, about Holiness and righteousness, and about their need for repentance and the Savior. Even regular church-goers have been so woefully and poorly taught, they cannot explain the truth of the Gospel, and they certainly would never have the courage to share it if they ever took the opportunity. Christianity has become a “spectator sport,” where we are never asked to do anything, always encouraged to stay away from those “wackos” who fight the murder of innocent babies, who speak out against sodomy and the reprobate minds that have become so warped by the enemy’s deceptions that they cannot even say for sure whether they are male or female. “Stay away from people like that,” our pastors tell us. “They are radicals. They are nuts. They do not represent what our church believes.” Indeed. They do not.
The Bible tells us in Ephesians 5 that we are to have nothing to do with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather, expose them. We also read that it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret — and yet today we have Christian churches not only endorsing baby killing, sodomy and the demonically-twisted lie of “transgenderism,” we even have churches participating in these evils… approving of abortion, funding and praying for Planned Parenthood, ordaining sodomite preachers!
Go to Romans 1: “Although they knew God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things, but also approve of those who practice them.” Go to any sodomite “pride” parade and you will find literally dozens of so-called “Christian” churches participating in the parade with their own vulgar parade floats; while, meanwhile, a mere handful true Christ-followers will be on the sidelines trying their best to minister God’s Word and tell the Truth amidst hundreds of thousands of lost souls, so filled with hatred of God, they would kill every Christian if they could… and our pastors tell their people to stay away from the truth-tellers, the bold, courageous Christians willing to put their lives on the line for the Gospel.
Well, the risen Christ had a different message than these hirelings. He said the righteous will triumph over the evil one. How? “…by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony, and loving not their own lives, even unto death.” Radical? Yes. Acceptable in our churches today? No. You’d be a weirdo. You’d be a radical. You would not be welcome. Pastors would encourage others to stay away from you. And they do.
As go the pulpits, so goes the nation. The blood that flows from our public schools is the same blood that flows in our streets — innocent blood of our children, the judgment of God on a nation that has rejected Him — a nation whose every thought seems to be only evil, all the time, only honoring Him with their lips when it becomes convenient, …or necessary to calm the guilty conscience. Until we repent and turn — corporately — as a nation, back to our Creator, I don’t believe He listens to our superficial prayers, offered up in vain. We can stand and hold candles and gather and mourn together every time violence erupts in our land, but until we turn back to God, He will not take part in any of our sorrowful assemblies.
We are lost. We are sheep without shepherds, led by cowardly hirelings. I’m sorry to be so blunt. I do not wish to impugne all pastors. Certainly there are some bold, courageous ones out there, and I know some personally. But the vast majority in America today are hirelings. Jesus was even more emphatic than what I have said here, using words like “Snakes,” “Brood of Vipers,” “Whitewashed tombs.” And He told those religious leaders they were “of their father, the devil.”
It’s time for some courageous Christianity in America today. We have to decide if we’re serious about this, or if we are just going to let the evil one have his way with us while our children and grandchildren die, with twisted minds, broken hearts and lost souls. If you are ready to get serious about these issues and if you’re ready to meet like-minded people, I encourage you to join us, March 9th and 10th at the 2018 Wisconsin Christian News Ministry Expo and Conference in Marshfield, Wisconsin. All these issues and more will be discussed by some of the most notable leaders in the Christian world from around the nation. You will be educated, informed and equipped to have an impact for Jesus in this lost, sad, sick world. If you don’t already know about this extremely vital Conference, I encourage you to call me for all the details. No matter where you live, anywhere in America, if you are serious about your faith, you need to be at this Conference. And you need to bring your children and grandchildren with you as well! I guarantee it will be life-changing. And if you actually act on what you learn there, God may yet have mercy on us all. Please don’t miss this opportunity. We may never get another one.
