Why would Anyone ever Believe President Obama, an Authentic Black American Christian, is a Muslim?

Our law is by definition a codification of morality, much of it grounded in the Judeo/Christian Tradition.

– Barack Obama

NOTE: One must acknowledge that President Obama uses the word Judeo (meaning Judaism) and Christian (meaning Christianity), just as he specifically leaves out the word ‘Muslim’ and/or ‘Islamic’. This doesn’t sound like something a Muslim would ever say or believe.
_________________________________

In many ways, the election of a black man, Barack Obama, as the most powerful leader in the world indicates that the Judeo/Christian doctrine of universal brotherhood has finally managed to emerge triumphant after a very scary, and completely evil previous century that threatened the very foundations of Christianity. At the same time, a great many of Obama’s public statements have been infused with the inspirational and moral certainty that originates with his faith in Christianity.

QUESTION #1) If Obama was really a Muslim, why would a Jewish journalist ever write an entire essay calling him ‘the first Jewish President’???

Unfortunately, there appears to be a substantial percentage of citizens that truly despise this happy-go lucky, modest, and very normal young American black man. It is true that their diabolical power and influence continues to diminish year after year as more and more black and white Americans fall in love, get married and then have children. Even so, they have still managed to greatly confuse many God-fearing Americans, especially white, Protestant Christians, about Obama’s religious faith and beliefs. This sordid affair all began when Obama, an unknown Senator from Chicago, emerged as victor of the Democratic party primaries and was then chosen as the Democratic candidate for President. Almost immediately, vicious rumors of him being a secret Muslim believer began circulating. As one reporter wrote:

Of the many rumors that have dogged President Barack Obama the most persistent one has been the “question” of his faith….The question is why has this rumor proven to be so tenacious and who is behind its propagation.

Sad as it is, the American media, including some of its most prominent newspapers and television, spent literally months publishing absolutely fictitious news reports and articles about Obama’s possible Muslim faith, broadcasting this vile falsehood to millions upon millions of American viewers and listeners.

I’d say, probably, intellectually I’ve drawn as much from Judaism as any other faith.

– President Barack Obama

QUESTION #2) If the President was really a Muslim why would he ever point to Judaism as one of his major intellectual influences???
_________________________________

Most of the reporters and journalist responsible for propagating this white-racist inspired defamation of President Obama have yet to apologize or to even acknowledge their mistake. The President, obviously comfortable in his Christian faith, has responded to these outrageous, and deeply paranoid, beliefs with calm nobility. As one news source summarizes:

The President in his usual Spock-like calm recently addressed the mistaken beliefs (that he is a Muslim)…on “NBC Nightly News” blaming the “confusion” over his religious beliefs on “a network of misinformation that a new media era can get churned out there constantly.”

As it turns out, the original source of this rumor may well have been partially fueled by Republican political operatives (and possibly white racists) who were vehemently opposed to having Obama, a black man, as President of the United States. As one journalist puts it:

Labeling the President a Muslim also shows the racism and xenophobia of the Right. The Right has constantly attempted to make Obama appear to be strange and foreign; they have constantly attempted to make the aura around him appear to be dark and dangerous simply.  They have done this simply because he is Black.  He’s the Antichrist, a Muslim, the “other,”…because he is not White….This is why (there are)…questions about his religion.

QUESTION #3) Would an actual Muslim believer ever pray at the Western Wall????

Indeed, it may well be the ugly specter of white racism behind one of the greatest lies ever told in American politics- that Barack Obama is actually a anti-Christian Muslim believer, and a secret follower of the Prophet Mohammad. Here are the actual statistics from three independent news sources:

+ A Pew Research poll in August (2010) revealed ‘that one in five Americans falsely believe the president is a Muslim, more than thought so last year’.
+ In a poll by Newsweek, 12 percent of voters incorrectly believe he’s Muslim; more than a quarter believe he was raised in a Muslim home.
+ A Time Magazine poll found that 24 percent of Americans believe Obama is a Muslim, rather than a Christian.

QUESTION #4) Would a loyal Islamic follower of the Prophet Mohammad ever celebrate Hanukkah???

Given the highly-advanced, and extremely powerful, nation of today’s America, It is somewhat frightening how many of its adult citizens who vote can continue to believe in a total lie for years after it has been proven wrong beyond any shadow of a doubt. Tragically, this completely incorrect and easily verifiable falsehood continues to haunt a President who is just as Christian as George W. Bush, more Christian than Bill Clinton, and far more Christian than either George F. W. Bush or Ronald Reagan ever were. In fact, Barack Obama’s continued public display of Christian faith, especially his habits of quoting the Bible and frequently referring to Jesus Christ by name, is living proof that he truly is a Christian President. Here are just a few selected quotes form his public speeches:

As somebody who relies heavily on my Christian faith in my job, I understand the passions that religious faith can raise.

– President Barack Obama

(The story of Jesus’ birth) that we are called to love each other as we love ourselves, that we are our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper, and our destinies are linked…It’s a message that guides my Christian faith.

– President Barack Obama

(We can) see God in other people and do our best to help them find their, you know, their own grace…So that’s what I strive to do…That’s what I pray to do everyday. I think my public service is part of that effort to express my Christian faith.

– President Barack Obama

I found myself drawn – not just to work with the church but to be in the church…It was through this service that I was brought to Christ.

– President Barack Obama, University of Notre Dame, May 17 2010

QUESTION #5) Instead of accusing Obama of being Muslim, how come no one ever suspects him of being a secret Jew???

The fact of the matter is that, regardless of Barack Obama’s politics, some of which are in opposition to traditional Christian doctrines, he is still an authentic, genuine Christian believer who has been properly baptized by an ordained Christian minister and managed to attend Christian Sabbath on a weekly basis for over 20 years before running for President. In reality, Obama’s Christianity is undeniable and, in the end, sincere and factual.

A Simple Answer to 5 Questions

QUESTION #1) If Obama was really a Muslim, why would a Jewish journalist ever write an entire essay calling him ‘the first Jewish President’???
QUESTION #2) If the President was really a Muslim why would he ever point to Judaism as one of his major intellectual influences???
QUESTION #3) Would an actual Muslim believer ever pray at the Western Wall????
QUESTION #4) Would a loyal Islamic follower of the Prophet Mohammad ever celebrate Hanukkah???
QUESTION #5) Instead of accusing Obama of being Muslim, how come no one ever suspects him of being a secret Jew???

THE ANSWER TO QUESTION #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5) Because literally every single person who calls Obama a Muslim is white, and most likely a racist, yet not completely racist. Thus, they remain too cowardly to say the ‘N’ word (the racist derivative of Negro) out loud or in public and have resorted to deceptively using the ‘M’ word (Muslim, an adherent to Islam) instead- thereby getting away with their ignorant, bigoted, hate-mongering yet again.

The Forgotten Judeo/Christian Tragedy of Interest

 

The Days of No Interest

The success of ancient Israel, and especially the financial success of the Jewish people, was indeed due to the their own religious laws regarding money, especially when it came to debts and loans. As the Torah clearly indicates, Israel was set up to be a banking nation from its very inception. As Moses predicted:

You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.

– Deuteronomy 28:12

As the law clearly stated, Israel usually obeyed it and from the time of King David and Solomon onward were renowned throughout the world for their  business and financial skills and success. For a long time after, the financial and monetary system of Israel, then Judea, gave the Jews quite a bit of wealth and power along the way. The following prophecy seemed to be fulfilling itself without any real difficulties.

For the LORD your God will bless you as He has promised you, and you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow; and you will rule over many nations, but they will not rule over you.

– Deuteronomy 15:6

This commercial success was interrupted by the Babylonian captivity, when Jerusalem was conquered by the Babylonian Empire and its Temple looted for all its gold and silver. Nevertheless, this exile proved temporary and even though the Jews never really regained their political independence again, their financial and commercial freedoms proved to be more than enough to allow for the practice of Judaism and for the prosperity of the Jewish people. One of the keys to their success was a simple rule, one could charge interest to foreigners, but never to their fellow Jews. As the Torah stated:

You may charge interest on what you lend to foreigners, but not on what you lend to Israelites. Obey this rule, and the LORD your God will bless everything you do.

– Deuteronomy 23:20

This religious tradition of not charging any interest to any fellow Jews kept a fair amount of economic equality among the Jewish people both in Israel and abroad in foreign countries. The Bible also established a system of debt relief every seven years, where all debts, especially debts on real estate, were canceled every seventh year regardless of the lender’s financial interests. As Moses stated in the Torah:

Do not refuse to lend them something, just because the year when debts are canceled is near. Do not let such an evil thought enter your mind. If you refuse to make the loan, they will cry out to the LORD against you, and you will be held guilty.

– Deuteronomy 15:9

One should keep in mind that the ancient laws of the Torah did not allow for any military expansion or conquest outside of the Divinely-ordained borders of Israel, but this did not stop the Jews from becoming extremely successful international businessmen who established large Jewish settlements and commercial colonies in Babylon, Egypt, Persia, and then eventually throughout the Greco-Roman Empire. The Jewish desire for mercy and justice for its own people, as commanded by the Bible and its one, true God caused the following general rule to be applied:

Be generous to these poor people, and freely lend them as much as they need. Never be hard-hearted and tight-fisted with them.

– Deuteronomy 15:8

The Biblical Ban on Interest

For those modern Judeo-Christian believers who remain in denial when it comes to the clear, and repeated condemnations of usury found throughout Scriptures, it should be remembered that the system was never perfect, or perfectly fair. Regardless, today’s total acceptance of the taking of interest on loans and debts should be tempered with a firm knowledge that the modern world is far from the Hebrew financial traditions of yesteryear. In reality, usury is against the laws of God and today’s believers still need to know this, rather than slipping away into some sort of anti-religious socialist ideals of the recent past. Here is a summary of the relevant Biblical passages when it comes to charging interest:

If you lend money to any of my people who are poor, do not act like a moneylender and require him to pay interest.

– Exodus 22:25

Do not make them pay interest on the money you lend them.

– Leviticus 25:37

When you lend money or food or anything else to Israelites, do not charge them interest.

– Deuteronomy 23:19

My brothers, my servants, and I are lending money and grain to the poor, but we must stop charging them interest.

– Nehemiah 5:10

[He] who lends money to the poor without interest; who does not accept a bribe against the innocent. Whoever does these things will never be shaken.

– Psalm 15:5

He lends money on interest and takes increase; will he live? He will not live! He has committed all these abominations. He will surely be put to death; his blood will be on his own head.

– Ezekiel 18:13

According the the Jewish prophets, the perfect, righteous man was one who, regardless of wealth or prestige, remained staunch in their refusal to practice usury of any kind, even to the smallest degree. Honesty, integrity, holiness, and the ban on the taking of interest, went together just as Moses, indeed, just as God Himself, had originally commanded. Two separate passages of Ezekiel sums this attitude up:

He doesn’t lend money for profit. He refuses to do evil and gives an honest decision in any dispute.

– Ezekiel 18:8

He refuses to do evil and doesn’t lend money for profit. He keeps my laws and obeys my commands.

– Ezekiel 18:17

 

Scriptural Finance

Sound business advice includes the imperative to avoid poverty at all costs and to never be a borrower, but always a lender. As Solomon intoned, in the Book of Proverbs, ‘Poor people are slaves of the rich. Borrow money and you are the lender’s slave.’ (Proverbs 22:7) Also, one needed to be wary of those who might have the power to refuse to pay back any loans. This makes sense because many lenders would not ever pay back their loans, if they could actually get away with it without any penalties. This is the way of the world and lenders would be wise to heed this advice. The Bible writes as follows:

He will…bless all your work, so that you will lend to many nations, but you will not have to borrow from any.

– Deuteronomy 28:12

You should not lend anything to someone more powerful than you. If you do, you might as well consider it lost.

– Sirach 8:12

The people of Israel were repeatedly commanded by God to remain obedient to His laws and to be wary of any nation which was more financially powerful and who might even try lending money to Israel. As the LORD God warns advisedly, ‘They will have money to lend you, but you will have none to lend them. In the end they will be your rulers.’ (Deuteronomy 28:44) If one is absolutely forced to borrow any money at all, the following rule should be applied:

When you are in debt, pay it back as soon as you can.

– Sirach 29:1-2

The Old Testament also warns against being greedy when it comes to the collection of collateral on any loan. Lenders are advised to be less cautious and to trust that those who borrow money will, in fact, pay it back. The general idea is for those with money to not be so quick to demand collateral and to accept less, all the while giving more to others. The Bible reads:

When you lend someone something, you are not to take as security his millstones used for grinding his grain. This would take away the family’s means of preparing food to stay alive.

– Deuteronomy 24:6

When you lend someone something, do not go into his house to get the garment he is going to give you as security.

– Deuteronomy 24:10

In several different places, the Bible advises those who have the money to freely lend it out to those who need it. The Gospels state: ‘When someone wants to borrow something, lend it to him.’ (Matthew 5:42) This includes friends, neighbors, and the poor. Scriptures also promises those who lend without interest that the LORD God Himself will reward them for their good deeds. The reward for their generosity will not only come in this life, but also in the next. Besides, lending at no interest is something the LORD God wants his followers to do. The pertinent passages can be read as follows:

Be kind enough to lend to your neighbor when he needs help. You are keeping the LORD’s commands if you help him. If he needs something, lend it to him.

– Sirach 29:1-2

Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice.

– Psalm 112:5

Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and He will reward them for what they have done.

– Proverbs 19:17

When you give to the poor, it is like lending to the LORD, and the LORD will pay you back.

– Proverbs 19:17

In terms of freely lending to those in need at no interest, Jesus Christ goes even further. He recommends to lenders that they should give their money out to people who may never pay it back, This practice of basically giving money away for free should be done in order to ensure a blessing from the LORD God. This is because even the wicked will lend at no interest in order to secure some form of future gain if possible. Jesus Christ advised the following:

Do good and lend, expecting nothing in return and your reward will be great.

– Luke 6:35

 

The End of Usury?

Unlike the Pagan nations, and their laws, the Jews continued in their tradition of refusing to charge interest on loans, at least amongst themselves, long after the Second Temple of Jerusalem had fallen to the Roman military, scattering the remaining Jews throughout the Empire. The general rules, as stated in the Babylonian Talmud, were as follows:

The general principle of usury is: All payment for waiting for one’s money is forbidden.

– Babylonian Talmud, Nezikin I, Baba Mezi’a 63b

Lenders on interest are compared to shedders of blood.

– Babylonian Talmud, Kodashim III, Temurah 6b

After the religion of Christianity managed to take over the Pagan traditions of the Greco-Roman economic system both slavery and usury were abolished due to the growing influence of the Christian Churches who saw themselves as the New Israel where all men were brothers in Christ and equal before God. Like the religious authorities of ancient Israel had done many centuries before, the Church hierarchy soon banned the taking of interest throughout Christendom. The policy of Jesus Christ was just like that of Moses when it came to the practice of usury:

If you lend only to those from whom you hope to get it back, why should you receive a blessing? Even sinners lend to sinners to get back the same amount!

– Luke 6:34

After awhile, Jews were allowed to lend money to Christians at interest for purposes of economic necessity. Eventually, the Church lost control over the financial laws of the various Christian kingdoms and the taking of interest, a distinctly Pagan, anti-Jewish, anti-Christian practice, was again legal throughout the Western world of Christianity. This may not have been a good thing, or the only way to modern prosperity. Perhaps someday, mankind will recognize the sheer genius and inherent goodness of the Biblical laws which prohibited usury among fellow religious believers. Indeed, it may still be a possibility to have a capitalistic system not based upon money and interest, but re-established upon the ancient laws of the one, true God once again.

The Good News about Barack Obama’s Understated Christian Faith.

Fear God and keep His Commandments for this is the whole duty of man.

– Ecclesiastes 12:13

They say a Picture is worth a thousand words. Hopefully, this picture says to everyone in America at least five all-important words- ‘Barack Obama is a Christian‘. Without acknowledging this undeniable fact, the other 9,995 words do not matter in the least.

The Good News about Barack Obama, an American Christian President

The following quotes from Christian President Barack Obama were taken during an interview conducted by Cathleen Falsani, a Chicago Sun-Times reporter, in 2004 when the possibility of him being elected President four years later would have been unthinkable. In the interview, Barack Obama’s public honesty towards his Christian faith was far more pronounced than today in the year 2011. This is mainly because the Republican opposition’s mockery and ridicule of his authentic and learned form of Christian faith has paid off with the American voters, many of whom are so delusional that they ignorantly believe him to be the anti-Christ and/or a secret Muslim lying about his Christian faith. Those who even pay attention to such an absurd, baseless claim need a serious reality check. For example, no true Muslim believer would ever dare to say something even remotely similar to the following quote:

________________________________________

And I’d say, probably, intellectually I’ve drawn as much from Judaism as any other faith.

– President Barack Obama

________________________________________

As the following excerpts will show, this pre-Presidential interview goes far in proving that President Obama’s adherence to Christianity is very informed and directly based upon the teachings of Rabbi joshua (Jesus) as recorded in the Gospels. Here is a direct comparison of Barack Obama’s actual remarks and the relevant New Testament passage which clearly shows his authentic Christian faith to be just as rooted in Scriptures as any Republican believer, including ex-President George W. Bush. These comparisons also suggest that the ugly, vile attacks and brutal questioning of his religious beliefs since he became President has very little to do with the Bible and is most likely a subtle form of white racism in disguise.

THE OBAMA: (In Chicago’s) South Side working class and lower income communities…it was in those places where I think what had been more of an intellectual view of religion deepened…I became much more familiar with the ongoing tradition of the historic black church and it’s importance in the community. And the power of that culture to give people strength in very difficult circumstances, and the power of that church to give people courage against great odds. And it moved me deeply.
THE GOSPELS: Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven….Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied…Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great. (Matthew 5:4-12)

THE OBAMA: But my mother was deeply spiritual person…her view always was that underlying these religions were a common set of beliefs about how you treat other people and how you aspire to act, not just for yourself but also for the greater good.
THE GOSPELS: In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.(Matthew 7:12)

________________________________________

Jesus Christ is the LORD. I believe in that.

– President Barack Obama, September 26, 2011

________________________________________

THE OBAMA: I probably didn’t get started getting active in church activities until I moved to Chicago…one of the churches that I became involved in was Trinity United Church of Christ. And the pastor there, Jeremiah Wright, became a good friend. So I joined that church and committed myself to Christ in that church. It was a daytime service, during a daytime service. And it was a powerful moment. Because, it was powerful for me because it not only confirmed my faith, it not only gave shape to my faith, but I think, also, allowed me to connect the work I had been pursuing with my faith.
THE GOSPELS: Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John…Jesus replied, ‘Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.’ Then John consented. As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.’ (Matthew 3:13-17)

THE OBAMA: I am a Christian. So, I have a deep faith. So I draw from the Christian faith. So, I’m rooted in the Christian tradition.
THE GOSPELS: “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.” (Mark 11:22-23)

THE OBAMA: There are values that transcend race or culture, that move us forward, and there’s an obligation for all of us individually as well as collectively to take responsibility to make those values lived.
THE GOSPELS: Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:18-20)

________________________________________

I am a Christian by choice…I came to MY CHRISTIAN FAITH later in life, and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that would want to lead.

– President Barack Obama (2008-2011)

________________________________________

THE OBAMA: I retain from my childhood and my experiences growing up a suspicion of dogma. And I’m not somebody who is always comfortable with language that implies I’ve got a monopoly on the truth, or that my faith is automatically transferable to others.
THE GOSPELS: Calling them to Himself, Jesus said to them, ‘You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them; and their great men exercise authority over them. But it is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant.’ (Mark 10:42-43)

THE OBAMA: I’m a big believer in tolerance. I think that religion at it’s best comes with a big dose of doubt. I’m suspicious of too much certainty in the pursuit of understanding just because I think people are limited in their understanding.
THE GOSPELS: (Jesus) said, “Woe to you lawyers as well! For you weigh men down with burdens hard to bear, while you yourselves will not even touch the burdens with one of your fingers.’ (Luke 11:46)

THE OBAMA: I think that, particularly as somebody who’s now in the public realm and is a student of what brings people together and what drives them apart, there’s an enormous amount of damage done around the world in the name of religion and certainty.
THE GOSPEL: Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in Heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst. (Matthew 18:19-20)

THE OBAMA: Jesus is an historical figure for me, and he’s also a bridge between God and man, in the Christian faith, and one that I think is powerful precisely because he serves as that means of us reaching something higher.
THE GOSPELS: Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’ (John 14:6)

THE OBAMA: And he’s also a wonderful teacher. I think it’s important for all of us, of whatever faith, to have teachers in the flesh and also teachers in history.
THE GOSPELS: The student is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his master. It is enough for students to be like their teachers, and servants like their masters. (Matthew 10:23-25)

THE OBAMA: Some of the things I talked about…are channeled through my Christian faith and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
THE GOSPELS: He who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me. He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me. I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness. (John 12:44-46)

THE OBAMA: Alongside my own deep personal faith, I am a follower, as well, of our civic religion. I am a big believer in the separation of church and state…I am a great admirer of our founding charter, and its resolve to prevent theocracies from forming, and its resolve to prevent disruptive strains of fundamentalism from taking root ion this country. As I said before, in my own public policy, I’m very suspicious of religious certainty expressing itself in politics.
THE GOSPELS: Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s. (Matthew 22:21)

________________________________________

(The story of Jesus’ birth) that we are called to love each other as we love ourselves, that we are our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper, and our destinies are linked…It’s a message that guides MY CHRISTIAN FAITH.

– President Barack Obama (2008-2011)

________________________________________

THE OBAMA: I can give religious expression to that. I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sister’s keeper, we are all children of God. Or I can express it in secular terms. But the basic premise remains the same. I think sometimes Democrats have made the mistake of shying away from a conversation about values for fear that they sacrifice the important value of tolerance. And I don’t think those two things are mutually exclusive.
THE GOSPELS: So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, ‘If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.’ (John 8:31-32)

THE OBAMA: I think that I am disturbed by, let me put it this way: I think there is an enormous danger on the part of public figures to rationalize or justify their actions by claiming God’s mandate.
THE GOSPELS: Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense you make long prayers; therefore you will receive greater condemnation. (Matthew 23:14)

THE OBAMA: This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and proselytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to Hell.
THE GOSPELS: Go throughout the whole world and preach the gospel to all people. (Mark 16:15)

THE OBAMA: I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell…I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity…That’s just not part of my religious makeup.
THE GOSPELS: See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in Heaven always see the face of my Father in Heaven. (Matthew 18:14)

THE OBAMA: When I tuck my daughters in at night and I feel like I’ve been a good father to them, and I see in them that I am transferring values that I got from my mother and that they’re kind people and that they’re honest people and that they’re curious people, that’s a little piece of Heaven.
THE GOSPELS: If anyone causes one of these little ones-those who believe in me-to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. (Matthew 18:6)

THE OBAMA: I am a Christian. So, I have a deep faith. So I draw from the Christian faith…So, I’m rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place.
THE GOSPELS: John said unto him, ‘Teacher, we saw one casting out demons in thy name; and we forbade him, because he followed not us.’ But Jesus said, ‘Forbid him not: for there is no man who shall do a mighty work in my name, and be able quickly to speak evil of me. For he that is not against us is for us.’ (Mark 9:38-40)

THE OBAMA: And I’d say, probably, intellectually I’ve drawn as much from Judaism as any other faith.
THE GOSPELS: Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:17-20)

As can be seen, the Christian beliefs and doctrines of President Barack Obama all have direct parallels with the written words of the Gospels. This not only shows that Obama truly has read his Bible, but has also applied it to his politics and private life in many different ways. Growing up in an essentially non-religions household with a broken family, Barack Obama once was lost, but quite obviously has been found by the Grace of the LORD Joshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ).

May the LORD God bless you in the name of the Judeo/Christian Tradition.

A Basic Guide to the Christianity of President Barack Obama

 

 

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.

Our law is by definition a codification of morality, much of it grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition.

– President Barack Obama, a Protestant Christian for over 20 years

Barack Obama, the first African-American President in a nation that was still practicing black slavery a mere 140 years ago, is one of the most inspiring occurrences in the 21st century and may well be a sign that the third millennium will turn out to be an era of peace and prosperity for all Americans, and for all God’s children throughout the world. In many ways, his election as the most powerful leader in the world, indicates that the Christian doctrine of universal brotherhood has managed to emerge triumphant after a very scary, and completely evil, previous century that threatened the very foundations of Christianity. At the same time, a great many of Obama’s public statements have been infused with the inspirational and moral certainty that originates with his faith in Christianity. Here are just a few highlights:

My Bible tells me that if we train a child in the way he should go, when he is old he will not turn from it. I think faith and guidance can help fortify a young woman’s sense of self, a young man’s sense of responsibility, and a sense of reverence all young people for the act of sexual intimacy.

– Senator Barack Obama

We believe in a country that rewards hard work and responsibility, a country where we look after one another, a country where we say, ‘I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sister’s keeper, I’m not just thinking about myself.’

– President Barack Obama

The fact of the matter is that, regardless of Barack Obama’s politics, some of which are in opposition to traditional Christian doctrines, he is still an authentic, genuine Christian believer who has been properly baptized by an ordained Christian minister. After this he did not fall, and he did not stray. Instead, he dutifully attended Christian Sabbath on a weekly basis for over 20 years before running for President. What follows is a basic guide to the Christianity of President Barack Obama. It has been organized in the following manner:

Part I. A Sampling of Quotes from Barack Obama

As somebody who relies heavily on my Christian faith in my job, I understand the passions that religious faith can raise.

– President Barack Obama (2008-2011)

(The story of Jesus’ birth) that we are called to love each other as we love ourselves, that we are our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper, and our destinies are linked…It’s a message that guides my Christian faith.

– President Barack Obama (2008-2011)

(We can) see God in other people and do our best to help them find their, you know, their own grace…So that’s what I strive to do…That’s what I pray to do everyday. I think my public service is part of that effort to express my Christian faith.

= President Barack Obama (2008-2011)

I found myself drawn – not just to work with the church but to be in the church…It was through this service that I was brought to Christ.

– President Barack Obama, University of Notre Dame (May 17, 2010)

It was because of these new-found understandings – that religious commitment did not require me to suspend critical thinking…that I was finally able to walk down the aisle of Trinity United Church of Christ one day and be baptized…But kneeling beneath that cross on the South Side of Chicago, I felt God’s spirit beckoning me. I submitted myself to His will, and dedicated myself to discovering His truth.

– President Barack Obama (2008-2011)

Secularists are wrong when they ask believers to leave their religion at the door before entering into the public square. Frederick Douglas, Abraham Lincoln, Williams Jennings Bryant, Dorothy Day, Martin Luther King – indeed, the majority of great reformers in American history – were not only motivated by faith, but repeatedly used religious language to argue for their cause. So to say that men and women should not inject their “personal morality” into public policy debates is a practical absurdity. Our law is by definition a codification of morality, much of it grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition.

– Barack Obama (June 28, 2006)

There is hope for a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again and that its tender branch will not cease…The work ahead will not be easy, and there will be setbacks. There will be challenges along the way. But thanks to you, thanks to the great people of this great city, New Orleans is blossoming again.

– President Barack Obama (2008-2011)

I am a Christian by choice…I came to my Christian faith later in life, and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead…Being my brothers’ and sisters’ keeper. Treating others as they would treat me. And I think also understanding that you know, that Jesus Christ dying for my sins spoke to the humility that we all have to have as human beings.

– President Barack Obama (2008-2011)

I’m a Christian by choice. My family didn’t-frankly, they weren’t folks who went to church every week. And my mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew, but she didn’t raise me in the church. So I came to my Christian faith later in life, and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead-being my brothers’ and sisters’ keeper, treating others as they would treat me….

– President Barack Obama (2008-2011)

I came to my Christian faith later in life, and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead: being my brother’s and sister’s keeper, treating others as they would treat me…I think my public service is part of that effort to express my Christian faith.

– President Barack Obama (2008-2011)

It’s interesting listening to the girls, what they pray for…They’ll talk about family and thanking God for blessing us, but they’ll always add a little twist: ‘I hope we have a great Thanksgiving, I can’t wait to see the cousins…They used to pray for a dog, until we got a dog.

– President Barack Obama, commenting on the Obama family prayer before dinner

It means all the world to us to know that there are prayer circles out there and people who are keeping the spirits clean around us.

– First Lady Michelle Obama

I’d just sit in the back and I’d listen to the choir and I’d listen to the sermon…There were times that I would just start tearing up listening to the choir and share that sense of release..

– President Barack Obama (2008-2011)

Part II. Quotes from Official News Reports about Obama’s Christian Faith

Obama’s Christian Rhetoric

QUOTE- As president, Barack Obama has mentioned Jesus Christ in a number of high-profile public speeches – something his predecessor George W. Bush rarely did in such settings, even though Bush’s Christian faith was at the core of his political identity…Obama’s invocation of the Christian Messiah is more overt than Americans heard in the public rhetoric of Bush in his time in the White House – even though Bush’s victories were powered in part by evangelical voters….Still, it is ironic that Obama, who rode a wave of young, Internet-savvy and more secular voters to the White House, would more freely invoke the name of Jesus Christ than did Bush. -UNQUOTE

Obama’s Christian Beliefs

QUOTE- In openly personal terms, President Barack Obama on Tuesday honored the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, saying he draws inspiration from an eternal story of pain, suffering and redemption…Obama’s comments provided a brief, uncommon opening into how he views his Christian faith.

He welcomed them warmly as “my brothers and sisters in Christ” and honored Christ as “our risen savior.”…Obama has also held White House events honoring the Jewish and Muslim faiths. -UNQUOTE

Obama’s Christian Family Prayer

QUOTE- The first family says grace each night before dinner, President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle told ABC News in an interview that aired Friday…The Obamas have frequently spoken about prayer since arriving in the White House.

Today, it’s 18 percent…The percentage of those asserting that the president is a Christian — which he is — has gone down in that time, from 48% in March 2009 to 34% today…A plurality of Americans — 43% — say they don’t know what religion the president is. -UNQUOTE

Obama’s Daily Christian Readings

QUOTE- President Barack Obama is a great example of how technology and religion are symbiotic. Each morning, Obama reads a devotional on his BlackBerry….“I pray all the time now – because I’ve got a lot of stuff on my plate and I need guidance all the time,” he said with a laugh during an interview with ABC’s Nightline that was aired Thursday night…Obama sai receives his daily devotional from Joshua DuBois, his director of faith and neighborhood initiatives….“That’s how I start my morning. You know, he’s got a passage, scripture, in some cases quotes from other faiths to reflect on. This is something where you just hope that you are aligning your work with His purposes and that you’re attuned to the needs of the people you’re there to serve,” he said. -UNQUOTE

Obama’s Tolerant Christian Understanding of Faith and Sin

QUOTE- “This is a country that is still predominantly Christian, but we have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists” and others, he said, adding that “their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own, and that is part of what makes this country what it is.”…Humans are “sinful” and “flawed” beings that make mistakes and “achieve salvation through the grace of God,” the president continued….Obama responded that abortion should be “safe, legal and rare” in America, adding that families — not the government — “should be the ones making the decision.”…Restrictions against late-term abortion are in place now, he said, adding that “people still argue and disagree about it. That’s part of our Democratic tradition.” -UNQUOTE

Obama’s Christian Faith Denied and Defamed

QUOTE- Americans have some extreme views of President Obama, with a new controversial survey suggesting that 40 percent of adults believe he is a socialist, and about a quarter of survey participants thinking the president is a racist, anti-American and even doing things Hitler did…When broken out by political party, results showed some stark differences. For instance, the majority of Republicans believed the president is a Muslim and a socialist, while around 40 percent believe he is a racist, someone who resents American heritage and “wants terrorists to win.”…Forty percent of Republicans, compared with just 15 percent of Democrats, think Wall Street pulls his strings. -UNQUOTE

Obama’s Non-Muslim Past and Christian Present

QUOTE- Obama, however, claimed that his father, who he only knew as an infant, was an atheist. He assured that his time as President has only served to deepen his commitment to Christianity….Obama has repeatedly said that he is a Christian and prays regularly, but more Americans than ever have raised doubts over his beliefs. -UNQUOTE

Part III. The Factual Reality of President Obama’s Christian Presidency

– President Obama publically affirmed his Christian faith to a predominantly Muslim audience in Cairo, Egypt. He went to mention the famous Islamic legend of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed came together as one and prayed to God.

– Speaking to students at the University of Notre Dame, Barack Obama repeatedly described about his religious conversion to Christianity which occurred in Chicago working with the inner-city poor as a community activist.

– While discussing his economic policies in a speech at Georgetown Univeristy, President Obama deliberately invoked the Christian Gospel parable of building a house upon a foundation of either sand or solid rock to illustrate his political strategy.

– Even though he remains virulently opposed to nearly all of Obama liberal politics, Mr. Tony Perkins, who is president of the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian interest group, is on record praising the President’s openly Christian faith. Commenting on Barack Obama’s religious faith, He stated: ‘I don’t recall a single example of Bush ever saying Jesus or Christ…This is different…I applaud that. It gives people a sense of comfort.’

– Obama also managed to schedule an Easter prayer breakfast at the White House specifically for Christian pastors. During his opening remarks, he openly and specifically employed devout Christian rhetoric, even welcoming all the assembled guests as ‘my brothers and sisters in Christ.’

– A growing number of different news organizations have been reluctantly forced to make note of President Obama’s astonishing, and frequent, use of the term Jesus Christ, as well as other blatantly Christian terminology. One particular article even admitted the following: ‘Obama’s invocation of the Christian Messiah is more overt than Americans heard in the public rhetoric of Bush in his time in the White House’.

America’s Misinformed Confusion about Obama’s Christianity

Did you know that…

1) Since becoming President, Obama has mentioned Jesus Christ by name in public far more often than George W. Bush ever did during his tenure?

2) The Obama family, including his wife Michelle and their two daughters, recite Christian grace and prayers every night before eating dinner?

3) Barack Obama begins each morning by reading and reflecting upon Christian Scriptures and Prayers with one of his Christian staff members?

4) The historical evidence shows that Obama was never really a Muslim believer, while his sincere and authentic conversion to Christianity later in life has been clearly documented and verified?

5) President Obama has read and studied Roman Catholic Saint Augustine, the Christian intellectual Graham Greene, and the famous Protestant theologian Reinhold Niebuhr?

+ The Opposition to, Versus the Acceptance of, Obama’s Christianity +

Obama’s Public Christian Witness

Opposition To: I don’t need to hear politicians tell me how religious they are…Obama in a very overt way does what Bush tended to do in a more covert way. (Rev. Barry Lynn, United for Separation of Church and State)

Acceptance Of: I don’t recall a single example of Bush ever saying Jesus or Christ…This is different…I applaud that. It gives people a sense of comfort. (Tony Perkins, President of Family Research Council)

Obama’s Actual Christian Faith

Opposition To: Obama can call himself anything he likes, but there is a clear requirement for one to qualify as a Christian and Obama doesn’t meet that requirement…Such people do have a label applied to them in Scripture. They are called ‘false prophets’. (Cal Thomas)

Acceptance Of: Obama has accepted Jesus Christ. That’s what he says he has done. So I just have to believe that the president is what he has said. (Reverend Franklin Graham, Son of Billy Graham)

Obama’s Christian Beliefs

Opposition To: The fact Senator Obama denies Jesus is the only way to be saved…calls into question whether he believes…It is time for Senator Obama to be held accountable for what he says he believes to examine if he really is a Christian. (Bill Keller)

Acceptance Of: The president says he’s a Christian. I take him at his word…I think the faith that most Americans are questioning is the President’s faith in the government to generate jobs. (Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell)

Obama’s Christian Theology

Opposition To: I think he’s deliberately distorting the traditional understanding of the Bible to fit his own worldview, his own confused theology…He is dragging biblical understanding through the gutter. (James Dobson, Focus on the Family)

Acceptance Of: He presents his Christianity as an important aspect of his identity but one he doesn’t want to foist upon anyone else, and he would rather risk downplaying it than offending somebody…This notion that we are our brothers’ keepers…is kind of a mantra for him.(Jeffrey Siker, Loyola Marymount University)

Comparing the Political, Scientific, and Religious Understandings of Reality

Stop Overlooking!

Start Understanding…

The Political Understanding of Reality
In nature, there is the color red and there is the color blue. In Great Britain, there is the Labor Party and the Conservative Party. In the United States of America, there is the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. Europe and South America have the Social Democratic Party, the Christian Democratic Party, the Liberal Democratic Party, the Socialist Party, and the Communist Party. In the Roman Catholic Church there is only one political party. It is called the Conclave of Cardinals who meets, dressed completely in red, to decide who is to be the next Pope. Here is the reality:

Then another sign appeared in the sky; it was a huge red dragon…the ancient
serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world.

– Revelation 12:3-9

When the Cardinals have decided by vote upon the next Pope, a chimney is opened which spews forth white smoke, much like a fire-breathing dragon. Coincidence? Not completely. The Roman Catholic Church is the oldest working democracy in the world. It is also the oldest nation-state, a political entity that has lasted for almost 2,000 years. Kingdoms and nations have come and gone, while the Church has remained, picking through the ruins of many a lost empire. These failed empires include Napoleon’s French Empire, Kaiser Wilhelm’s German Empire, the Hapsburg’s Austria-Hungarian Empire, Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich, and the Soviet Union’s Communist Empire. All of them have fallen, while Vatican City has continued in its mission to convert the world to Christianity.

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name
of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe
all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the
end of the age.

– Matthew 28:19-20

With that in mind, one can assume that the Church considers its mission to be far more important than mere politics. Just recently, it has seen many ancient kingdoms turn into democracies throughout the world. Eschewing kings and queens, modern countries now regard ‘democracy’ as the most precious thing in the world, rather than seeing it as just another form of political organization. ‘Democracy’ began in ancient Greece, moved to Rome, and then reappeared centuries later in Great Britain, France and the United States.

It should be remembered that ‘democracy’ was originally advocated by the philosophers Plato and Socrates, both homosexual pedophiles. Some contend that these historical facts are irrelevant. There are others who claim that, because of this, democracy is inherently homosexual. This may well be the case. Consider the fact that, just recently, the people of Canada and Spain, along with quite a few other democratic Christian nations, actually voted in favor of same sex marriages. For the first time in more than 2,000 years, the State was now allowed to sanction sodomy as an individual right and to give explicit approval and encouragement to the act of anal sex.

It wasn’t so long ago that oral and anal sex between any two people was against the law. Now, the right to indulge in sodomy within marriage has become the law. It has taken a scant thirty or so years for this to occur. With the ways things are going, pedophilia, incest, and bestiality are next. Perhaps in another thirty years a father having sex with his thirteen-year old daughter and then again with their pet dog will also be perfectly legal. Biblical law is the only thing standing in the way. Current advocates for pedophilia include author Judith Levine who writes:

Sex is not harmful to children. It is a vehicle to self-knowledge, love, healing,
creativity, adventure, and intense feelings of aliveness. There are many ways
even the smallest of children can partake of it.

Society seems to be returning to the sexual decadence that was prevalent in pre-Christian Rome. Among the pagans, incestuous relationships between brother and sister, mother and son, and father and daughter were not uncommon and, most importantly, they were not prohibited by law. Pedophilia was perfectly legal and practiced throughout the Roman Empire. Only the Jews, by both custom and law, prohibited these acts and deemed them both grotesque and disgusting. Consider the following:

Pedophilia was a constant and accepted expression of Roman sexual appetite…’If
children were constantly molested, it was because Roman adults found that the
deepest-rooted passion and the one that was hardest to overcome was sexual desire
for very young boys and girls.’

Only time will tell if the modern world begins to degenerate to this point. Until then, it’s simply sexual politics as usual. Biblical reality no longer seems capable of teaching the proper amount of guilt and shame that constrains human lust. The modern world has gone from prayer in schools to mandatory sex education in just a short amount of time. It is hoped that society’s slide into sexual degeneration can be stopped before it’s too late, before it has reached the point of no return.

Traditionally in political reality, the colors red, white and blue represented Protestant Christian democracy as in the flags of Great Britain, France, the United States, and Australia, while the colors red, white and green represented Roman Catholic democracy as in the flags of Ireland, Italy, Spain, and Mexico. These distinctions no longer seem to matter as much as the dichotomy found between the political Left, symbolized by the color red, and the political Right, symbolized by the color blue or green. The current patterns of thought that distinguish between these two main strands of political reality can be grouped together in the following manner:

Field of Thought: Ism of The Left, Ism of The Right
Policy: Liberalism, Conservatism
Government: Globalism, Nationalism
Economics: Socialism, Capitalism
Warfare: Pacifism, Patriotism
Culture: Multiculturalism, Pluralism
Society: Progressivism, Traditionalism
God: Atheism, Monotheism
Religion: Paganism, Judeo-Christian-Islam
Christianity: Ecumenism, Fundamentalism
Philosophy: Nihilism, Pragmatism
Morality: Moral Relativism, Idealism
Ethics: Utilitarianism, Dualism
Outlook: Relativism, Realism
Identity: Collectivism, Individualism

As can be seen, many of the basic differences in political doctrine between the Left and the Right cannot, and will not, be reconciled. Year after year, the Right is becoming more and more in favor of Christianity, while the Left is becoming more hostile towards traditional religion and is showing its true colors as a front for the religion of paganism. This is especially true in the United States of America where, since the late 1960s, conservative Democrats and liberal Republicans are fast becoming anachronisms. Politics is polarizing along religious lines, with the Republicans becoming more Christian and the Democrats becoming more pagan with each passing year. The relevant issues that define current American political reality can be listed as follows:

Issues: The Left, The Right
Political Party: Democratic Party ,Republican Party
Abortion: Approve, Oppose
Raising the Minimum Wage: Approve, Oppose
Inheritance Taxes: Approve, Oppose
Euthanasia: Approve, Oppose
Gun Control: Approve, Oppose
No-Fault Divorce: Approve, Oppose
Gay & Lesbian Marriage: Approve, Oppose
Affirmative Action: Approve, Oppose
Sex Education: Approve, Oppose
Global Warming Regulation: Approve, Oppose
Public Funding for PBS: Approve, Oppose
Support for United Nations: Approve, Oppose
Teaching Darwinian Evolution: Approve, Oppose
School Prayer: Oppose, Approve
School Vouchers: Oppose, Approve
New Oil Drilling in Alaska: Oppose, Approve
Military Spending Increases: Oppose, Approve
Death Penalty: Oppose, Approve
Nuclear Power: Oppose, Approve

The recent influx of Hispanics onto the American political scene may change these polarizing tendencies. They are politically liberal, but culturally conservative. They support high taxes for the rich, but vehemently oppose same-sex marriage. They approve of school choice so that they can send their own children to Catholic school, but also want to raise the minimum wage through government mandate. They represent a unique, political voting bloc destined to become more powerful as they increase in population. Neither the Christian Right or the pagan Left will dominate American politics anytime soon, but their influence can still be seen in today’s issues and will be seen in tomorrow’s political reality.

The Scientific Understanding of Reality
Many aspects of the current scientific outlook remain fairly troubling. It was not always this way as science was once the domain of Churchmen who made many of the first important discoveries in several different fields. God and Christianity were considered undisputed facts and foundations of all knowledge. Times have changed and, in today’s world, the scientific outlook can be almost militantly atheist. They are all skeptics now apparently. Preferring to remain aloof from the ‘absurd’ superstitions, that supposedly plague so many of their fellow citizens, scientists have now developed a particularly hostile attitude towards all things religious. Some of the main doctrines supporting this arrogant and elitist view of reality, include the following:

1. The existence of a Creator God cannot be proven scientifically.
2. The existence of life after death cannot be proven scientifically.

These two assertions are the mainstay for almost all secular, atheist thought which modern science continues to base itself upon. For the most part, they believe that anything, which cannot be repeated three times under controlled conditions, is false or falsifiable. That is the basic definition of reality as science claims it to be. However, many things that have supposedly been described scientifically still remain fairly unexplainable. Consider the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights, and the awesome beauty they represent. Looking at them causes one to think that someone, an omnipotent artist of some sort, must have created them on a whim for others, especially mankind, to enjoy. Scientists will say that they are simply a random product of the right temperature, atmospheric pressure, and geographical latitude combining with the sunlight to create shimmering curtains of sparkling colors. They might even go on to say that, even though these Northern Lights seem to be the work of a designer, this is simply a coincidence. They will assert that the Aurora Borealis is merely a by-product of the blind forces of nature and nothing more. They cannot prove this to be the case, but they don’t need to as long as they can fool the people into thinking they have all the answers and that those answers are always correct.

It is not a fact that the Northern Lights were never created by an ancient, intelligent designer, it is merely an assumption made by atheists, many of them scientists. They cannot prove these lights emerged from unguided physical chaos for no reason. They can only claim that to be the case. They cannot prove it at all. Science cannot explain their unique beauty, only the existence of God can.

Put simply, just because the existence of God cannot be proven ‘scientifically’ really doesn’t mean very much. Many things cannot be proven ‘scientifically’ including the theory of evolution. Just because scientists see certain things under a microscope or through a telescope doesn’t mean they exist. They have blind faith that the microscope or telescope is showing the true picture of reality to the naked eye, but who is to say they aren’t just seeing imaginary things through a blurred piece of glass? Many people attest to having seen God personally, but they are almost always labeled as mentally ill. Notice the unfairness of the dichotomy. Those who see God in visions are called crazy and locked up in lunatic asylums, while those who see viruses or quarks through microscopes are called scientists and given money and Nobel Prizes. Why is that so?

True believers should care very little that God cannot be proven scientifically. Many other things, like thunder and lightning, for example, cannot be proven or explained either, only described. They are both totally awesome, but completely unnecessary aspects of a material reality that wouldn’t change much if they ceased to exist- kind of like old stage props that someone forgot to throw away. Nevertheless, just like the Northern Lights mentioned previously, they do exist and will continue to do so long after today’s scientists are safely buried six feet under. God is dead, said Nietzsche. Science is dead, replied God.

Modern science has reached an apex of godless materialism that is decaying from within. The theory of evolution is coming under attack by more and more people, scientists and laymen, who have noticed large gaps in the science of Darwinism that need to be addressed. In other words, the Darwinian theory of evolution is full of holes. It is bad science and will eventually be overtaken by what is called the theory of Intelligent Design. Why so? Consider the kangaroo, for example. Darwin would tell us that this species evolved from small tiny mice that were the predecessors of nearly all mammals. Inch by inch, century by century, they became larger, their front feet atrophied and became small, while their back feet grew and became very powerful, thus causing their distinctive way of running by hopping. Science boldly declares that there is an evolutionary reason why this happened that has nothing to do with the creative choices of a whimsical designer. No, this happened because hopping somehow contributes to their survival. How so? How does hopping contribute to adaptation and reproductive success? Why not have them be like deer or gazelle, which are even faster than kangaroo, and thus able to outrun many would be predators? There is no reason why, the scientists are just being silly and stupid about the issue because Darwinism confirms their atheism, Intelligent Design denounces it.

Why do kangaroos have pouches in which to nurture their young? Science tells us that this is to protect their helpless, infant children. Well then, why don’t any other mammals have these nifty pouches for their young? Monkeys have to use their hands, while dogs and cats have to use their mouths to carry their young, yet they are still around too. Science will also try to claim that all these changes that created today’s kangaroo came about incrementally and over a long period of time. The problem with this assertion is that there are no fossils showing these half kangaroo-half mice creatures that grow larger and larger over the generations. There are no half-pouching half-nesting, or half-hopping half-running pre-kangaroos found in the fossil record. That means that these unique features must have all come about in a single generation. That is scientifically impossible and would prove Darwinism to be dead wrong. There is no evidence, no scientific proof that kangaroos evolved from something else at all. The kangaroo rat doesn’t have a pouch or a head and skull like a dear as kangaroos do, so they don’t really count as an ancestor.

The fossil record shows nothing except that kangaroos appeared from nowhere millions of years ago as if they had been created from scratch by a God with an intelligent sense of humor. They did not evolve at all except into wallabies, which are simply a smaller, slightly different form of kangaroo. In fact, many observers would claim that, with the available evidence, it appears they were created by an intelligent, but goofy, designer like many of the exotic species found in Australia. Scientists dislike, some might say despise that conclusion, but it seems to be the most reasonable and logical answer to the huge gaps in the fossil record for almost all species.

Many mammals seem created and not evolved, consider the golden eyes and wonderful mane of the male lion and the awesome stripes of the tiger, the startling blue eyes of some cougars and the all-black fur of black panthers. Science tells us they are all felines and have a common ancestor, but where and who is that common ancestor? The ice-age sable-toothed tiger does not a lion make, nor does a bob-cat seem like a cheetah’s first cousin. To be sure, they all seem designed in a similar manner- the creative mark of a specific personality, an intelligent breeder of felines. They do not appear to be the product of random mutation and adaptation. What purpose do lion manes and tiger stripes serve? None! Black, white and orange Tiger stripes do not help as camouflage in an all green jungle, while big-maned old lions don’t always get the girl in order to carry their big-mane success on to the next generation. The scientists are fooling the public and nothing more.

Consider the unique look and character of some animals and their inherent fascinating beauty. The rattlesnake, the parrot, the polar bear, and the giraffe, all bear the mark of creative intelligent design. A list of the evolutionary explanations for these animals and their counterarguments are as follows:

The Rattlesnake
Animal Evolution: Tail acts as a noise-maker that scares off intruders. It evolved because it worked so well.
Creative Design: Why would a deadly snake need to scare off anybody? God created the rattle to warn man of its danger.

The Parrot
Animal Evolution: Multiple colors and vocal abilities serve as attraction to mates. They evolved that way.
Creative Design: God created the parrot to astonish mankind with their innate ability to speak words and look like artwork.

The Polar Bear
Animal Evolution: All-white fur is meant to blend into surrounding area in order to ‘sneak up on’ and catch prey or to hide from dangerous ‘rivals’.
Creative Design: What prey? Polar Bears eat fish. The water is blue or black, not white. God created Polar Bears to look artic cool.

The Giraffe
Animal Evolution: Neck evolved to become longer to reach higher levels of tree leaves.
Creative Design: Why didn’t they just eat grass? They can barely bend down to drink water. God created Giraffes for fun.

The plant kingdom also appears to have been created, not made through random mutation and selective adaptation. Consider the Venus fly-trap, the thorned rose, the English daisy or the redwood tree. It seems like God had a team of designers, angels, who left their own personal fads and favorites, repetitions and rip-offs, perhaps even mistakes, scattered among the plant and animal kingdoms. Nothing else explains their individuality. Chaos does not explain it because there is certainly room for hundreds of different species that were never invented.

The possibilities for multiple canine species are endless, yet all we find is the jackal, hyena, wolf, coyote, and dog. Just recently, man, like the angels before him, has managed to use his God-given genius to create many various breeds of dogs. As different as they look in size and color, they are all amazingly the same species. In truth, random chaos would yield more canine species than there are presently. A limited number of canine designers as opposed to say bird designers would explain the diverse array of bird species and small number of canine species. The peacock is another perfect example of Intelligent Design. How did such a wingless bird with a ton of superfluous plumage ever survive? The answer is that it did not need to. In the real world, it isn’t always survival of the fittest, but of the most magnificent and beautiful. Nothing else explains the killer whale, the zebra, the penguin, the panda bear, or the magpie. Their distinctive black and white colors serve no evolutionary function at all. Instead, they appear to be a sign of Intelligent Design.

In addition to failing to prove the theory of evolution, science also does not really explain color. It describes it, but cannot explain it at all. There could very well be 4-10 different ‘primary’ colors instead of just three. Nothing in science or mathematics proves otherwise. Color is about personal perception and not objective observation. There could be many more colors that the naked eye is unable to see. Perhaps some of the other animals see them, while humans remain incapable. Serious questions need to be asked concerning the science of color. Why are there only 6 colors in the rainbow? Why are they arranged in such a manner? The answer is that science doesn’t really know why. The only reasonable, logical, rational explanation for this is that the rainbow was designed by someone who simply chose, for example, to put red on top and purple on the bottom. This someone, God or one of His angels perhaps, made an individual decision to place them in that order.

It does not matter if science states that the colors vibrate at different frequencies in a sequential order. The rainbow’s color sequence could very well be different and not change scientific reality in the least. The so-called electro-magnetic spectrum would be no different if, for example, yellow was on the top instead of red. Yellow would simply have the top frequency and red would have a frequency lower down on the rainbow, but the scientific frequencies would remain the same. Suppose that red vibrated at 10 units per second while yellow vibrated at 30 units. Switching them would cause yellow to vibrate at 10 and red to vibrate at 30. The science would stay the same, while the rainbow’s appearance would be drastically different. There could also be a larger amount of colors without really affecting the electro-magnetic spectrum at all. Neither math nor science would need to change. A partial list of the ‘scientifically’ possible combinations, showing that the rainbow’s color sequence is completely arbitrary and unexplainable, is as follows. These possible rainbows have been given names creatively chosen by a specific individual who has no scientific credentials.

The Different Possible Sequences of Colored Arches in the Sky
Rainbows: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple
Peachstripes: Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Red
Mellowlines: Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Red, Orange
Plantbars: Green, Blue, Purple, Red, Orange, Yellow,
Coolhues: Blue, Purple, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green
Royalarches: Purple, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue

Today’s science would deny that God created the rainbow as a promise to mankind to never flood the earth again, but it will probably never be able to explain the sequence of earth’s rainbow. The reason why is obvious. Modern science refuses to accept or allow a place for a Creator of the universe who designed some attributes of nature, such as rainbows, in a completely arbitrary manner, much like an interior designer or architect chooses different bathroom fixtures. The rainbow and its colors prove that singular intelligent choice, in other words design, is an integral part of the natural world. There is no other explanation.

On a similar note, science cannot explain why mankind is now starting to dream in color rather than black and white. Decades ago, it was common to hear that people don’t dream in color and most would agree with that statement. Today, more and more individuals are dreaming in color with each passing year. Less and less people are color blind with each passing generation as well. Some might call this evolution, but there really is no scientific proof for this. Dreams are completely unnecessary in terms of evolution and adaptation. Nevertheless, those who dream in color are fast becoming the majority in society and this is true across racial lines as well. Mankind is not changing, dreams are.

The human female hymen is also an example of a completely unexplainable aspect of nature. Its only purpose is to prove virginity. The reason why women’s menstrual cycles are related to the tide and the movements of the moon also defy explanation. Why do male humans have one less rib than female humans? There are many aspects of the natural world that still remain mysterious and may be construed as possible evidence that there is a God and that man was created, not made.

Finally, science denies that there is an existence, a conscience reality, for each individual soul after biological death ensues. They state, quite assertively, that once brain death occurs, no further thought is possible. Thought requires synapses they say- electro-chemical sparks in the cortex must continue firing in order to think and to feel. No other reality is possible. This denies the very real life-after-death experiences that have become a part of thousands upon thousands of people’s lives. These life-after-death experiences have occurred well after brain death has commenced. This is impossible scientifically, yet patients say that for several minutes after they were physically dead, and their brain waves went flat, they remembered something more. They remembered being dead after brain activity had ceased! Nothing explains this except for the possibility that there is an existence, a life, after death unless one wants to claim they are all lying about it. That is unlikely, so one is stuck with the stark reality of these experiences.

Science is changing, slowly but surely, back to a reality that allows for a God and for a continuing existence after death. A century from now, Darwinism will have been firmly refuted and tossed aside as an explanation to how life began and how different species came into being. Intelligent Design will become the dominant paradigm for most scientists. Theories of adaptation and genetic mutation will be retained to explain some, but not all natural phenomena. Strict Darwinism, an outlook bristling with hostility towards God and religion will have become a thing of the past. The actual, final proof of God’s existence won’t be arriving anytime soon, but alternative understandings of scientific reality will become a standard part of mankind’s view of the world. Ghosts, dreams and forms of ESP are realities that have yet to be explained. Centuries of scientific discoveries lie ahead. How they are to be interpreted is still unknown. Let the debate begin.

The Religious Understanding of Reality
The human race often forgets, or even denies that, behind what philosopher John Rawls has called ‘the veil of illusion,’ there lies an eternal reality called the spiritual realm. For the most part, this realm is divided into areas where the wicked are punished for their deeds, while the righteous are rewarded for theirs. It is astonishing that across cultures, man has always believed that there is judgment awaiting him after death. Scriptures states the following:

The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and
abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for the
thousandth generation, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, yet by
no means clearing the guilty.

– Exodus 34:6-7

From the Native Americans to the Chinese to the Europeans, they have all believed in a merit system that rewards good behavior and punishes wicked behavior. Why is that? Some would say that it is intuitive, while others would contend that it is simply to scare the living into good behavior by threatening them with eternal damnation. The three great religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam have differing beliefs concerning the spiritual realm. There are as follows:

Judaism
The Sheol: an underground world of ghosts where the wicked are separated from the others and punished, while the righteous await entrance into Paradise and eventual resurrection of the dead in the World-to-Come.
Paradise: A pleasant, comforting world of ghosts where the righteous end up at some point, traditionally known as the Heart of Abraham

Christianity
Heaven: A place of eternal happiness for the righteous as a reward for their faith and good works.
Purgatory: A place of good works and spiritual purification that eventually leads to Heaven.
Hell: A place of eternal fire reserved the wicked. It is forever.

Islam
Heaven: consists of seven levels with the most righteous at top.
Hell: consists of seven levels with the most wicked at bottom.

In addition to this, these three religions also share a belief in spiritual beings called angels. The origins of these beliefs are quite mysterious. They cannot be traced to Sumerian, Egyptian, Babylonian or Persian sources and are, in fact, unique to the Biblical tradition. The angels are considered servants of God that were created before the universe was even founded. They are organized into a hierarchy of nine different types that are as follows:

I. Seraphim
II. Cherubim
III. Thrones
IV. Dominations
V. Virtues
VI. Powers
VII. Principalities
VIII. Archangels
IX. Angels

Today, even in Islam, believers remain fairly ignorant about the angelic tradition. Hopefully in the future this will change and society will become more literate when it comes to angels and their influence throughout history. The archangels, for instance, have individual names and personalities much like human beings do. Studied carefully, one could say that the religion of Judaism is the religion of the archangel Michael, who is considered the guardian angel of Israel and the Jewish people. The religion of Christianity is the religion of the archangel Lucifer, the highest of angels and the one closest to God- His only son, so to speak. The religion of Islam is the religion of the archangel Gabriel, who, from Ishmael to Mohammad, has guided his people towards the one true God, Allah.

There are some Christians who would object to this analysis contending that Lucifer is Satan, the devil, and Jesus is the son of God, not the archangel Lucifer. This comes from a folk-tale that was written down in the late Middle Ages by a man named Milton. This fictional novel was called Paradise Lost. There is absolutely no reason to believe that it is true and may, in fact, be completely false. The archangel Lucifer is an office, a position held within the angelic hierarchy, and can therefore be reassigned to another individual if necessary. The whole Christian story, if read carefully, is about the archangel Lucifer coming to earth in the form of a man named Jesus and being destined to die in order to take away the sins of the world. He is resurrected, ascends into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father, which is traditionally where the archangel Lucifer is supposed to sit. There is every reason to believe that Lucifer and Jesus are one in the same person, both then and now. The terms son of God, son of the morning, and morning star are used interchangeably to describe angels, especially one particular angel known as Lucifer. The evidence that Jesus is, and was, the archangel Lucifer is as follows:

Nicene Creed
Archangel Lucifer: Lucifer was thrown down by God from Heaven into hell.
Jesus Christ: Rabbi Jesus came down from Heaven, was born of the virgin Mary, was then crucified and died…He descended into hell.

Book of Revelation
Archangel Lucifer: Lucifer was also known as the morning star, the son of the morning. (Isaiah 14:12)
Jesus Christ: I Jesus…am the root and branch of David, the bright morning star. (Revelation 22:16)

Ancient Tradition
Archangel Lucifer: Out of all the angels, Lucifer was the most powerful and heir to the throne of God.
Jesus Christ: I myself first won the victory and sit with my Father on his throne. (Revelation 3:21)

The Hebrew terms Son of God and morning star are found elsewhere in the Old Testament. In the Book of Job it reads: ‘the morning stars sang in chorus and all the sons of God shouted for joy.’ How could this be if Jesus was the only Son of God? How could there be sons of God as in more than one Jesus Christ? The answer is that the terms used in the Bible can have multiple meanings to them. One thing is clear, however, the Book of Revelation has Jesus clearly admitting to its author John that He is the archangel Lucifer. Milton, the author of an exciting, but clearly fictional novel, may well have been horrifically wrong about Lucifer. Hopefully someday Christians will finally realize this and recognize their LORD and savior Rabbi Jesus as also being the archangel Lucifer who sits at the right hand of God the Father in Heaven, now as always, the brightest and the greatest of all the angels.

May the LORD God bless you in the name of St. Judas Maccabaeus.

Planet Abraham and the Judeo-Christian-Islamic Future

 

Judeo-Christian-Islam

 

Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, ‘I am God Almighty. Walk before Me and be blameless. I will establish My covenant between Me and you, and I will multiply you exceedingly…No longer shall your name be called Abram, instead your name shall be Abraham. For I have made you the father of a multitude of nations. I will make you exceedingly prosperous, and I will make nations of you and kings will come forth from you. I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your descendants after you.’

– Genesis 17:1-7

The Judeo-Christian-Islamic Legacy of Abraham

What has happened to Europe, especially Western Europe? Some commentators claim, many of them atheists, agnostics and Socialists, that modern Europe, as it is today, is the wave of the future. For them religious belief, the age of faith is over, and Socialism is the future. If that is so, then the future looks a little too Islamic and a lot less Christian than many other Westerners find comfortable. The idea that advanced society is going to slowly turn into some sort of agnostic, vaguely pagan, technological utopia where all the races live together in peace is the wishful thinking of tenured University professors and nothing more.

Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, while Abraham
was still standing before the LORD. Abraham came near and said, ‘Will You indeed
sweep away the righteous with the wicked?…Far be it from You to do such a thing, to slaythe righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous and the wicked are treated alike. Far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth deal justly?’

– Genesis 18:22-25

Islam is thriving, in both the Middle East and in continental Europe. Devout Muslims are snatching up work visas, residency permits, and ultimately, new citizenships, in every single country in Europe that is naive enough to give them permanent access. They are not giving up their Muslim heritage or religion and most importantly, they are not intermarrying with the white Europeans at all. In other words, they are not assimilating into the secular, Socialist mainstream of modern Europe in the least. Instead, they are rebelling, rioting, and plotting terrorism against it. Like it or not, they are colonizing Europe in the hopes of a future Islamic take-over. Christianity, at the same time, is not taken seriously by the vast majority of today’s Europeans, and has, since the 1960s, slowly fallen down. Unless there emerges political leaders with the audacity to throw these Muslim foreigners out, they are there to stay, right in the former heart of Christendom, just like the Jews who came before them. This is why there is still a slight danger that a racist backlash against these Muslims, similar to Nazism, may spread across Europe within the next several decades.

After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, ‘Do
not fear, Abram, I am a shield to you. Your reward shall be very great.’

– Genesis 15:1

International elites, in their cosmopolitan exuberance, foresee a secular, New World Order from Tokyo to New York to London to Paris to Berlin to Moscow where everyone can all live happily together with little threat of any religious resurgence, ethnocentrism, or civil disorder. This unlikely future fails to take into account some glaring historical facts that contradict the rosy picture painted by liberal internationalists. First of all, the foreign population of Japan is so small that it barely registers in a completely insular society composed of one race and one culture. Much to the chagrin of the globe-trotting elites, the Japanese have a blatantly racist society that frowns upon any and all interracial marriage including with those of Chinese or Korean descent. This is not about to change anytime soon, mostly because very few Japanese are Christian. Marriages between white and Asian Christians, which is occurring more often in the United States than ever before, has no parallel in actual Asian society whether it be in China, Korea, or Japan. Not only are these societies not letting in European, African, or American immigrants, they are refusing to racially mix with one another to any great extent. There are very few Japanese-Koreans, or Chinese-Vietnamese, or any other ethnic Asian combinations. They are the persecuted exceptions to the rule. These nations, all of them Asian, are as ethnocentric now, in practice, than they were before World War II. The Vietnamese despise the Chinese who loathe the Japanese who hate the Koreans. They do not mingle like literally all of the North, Latin, and South American nations do. This is mainly due to the Latinos common religion called Roman Catholic Christianity. Unfortunately in Asia, Shintoism doesn’t marry Buddhism, Hinduism, or Taoism and therein lies the trouble, both now and in the future.

I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you
and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.

– Genesis 12:3

The global elite also conveniently forgets that New York City suffered a horrific terrorist attack less than seven years ago, committed by Muslims on a city that is increasingly populated by Muslims. Who’s to say that there aren’t more attacks to come? Apparently Islamic extremists would rather kill their own people rather than let the ‘Great Satan’ get away with their attempt at creating one of the first multiracial nations in history. This is especially due to the pornographic, hedonistic and low-grade American culture that is exported worldwide to the anger and resentment of many different nations, including most of the Muslim world.

And the LORD said, ‘The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great,
and their sin is exceedingly grave.’

– Genesis 18:20

The recent bombings in London also show that Islam continues having no qualms about exporting mass terrorism to Europe itself. Many Muslim immigrants have no great desire to fit into the culture of their host countries and it seems that the reverse is also true. In France, Germany, Holland and Spain, the white natives are not seeking to assimilate the Muslims through intermarriage. Great Britain is exceptional in that it is imitating the United States in their policy of tearing down cultural barriers in order to encourage interracial marriages that create multiracial children. Australia is a perfect example of this where more and more white Australians are marrying Asians, Indians, and Latin Americans to create a new, authentically Australian ‘race’ of people that speak English as their national language. The problem with this is that, unlike Australia, with its enthusiastic Asian Christian population, the family unit in Great Britain is breaking down rapidly. For a variety of reasons, Europe is becoming more and more de-Christianized every single day. Multiracial communities need Christianity in order to sustain the family unit. They also need Christianity to help break down the ethnocentrism that discourages interracial marriages and families. African Christians, Asian Christians, and American Christians marry each other in Churches, not mosques. Agnostic, modern Europeans tend not to marry at all and if they do it is certainly not to the largest minority found in continental Europe today, the Muslims.

The matter distressed Abraham greatly because of his son (Ishmael). But God said to
Abraham, ‘Do not be distressed because of the lad and your maiden. Whatever Sarah tells you, listen to her, for through Isaac your descendants shall be named. And of the son of the maiden I will make a nation also, because he is your descendant.’

– Genesis 21:11-12

Some observers of the situation, like Pat Buchanan, for example, seem to think that Western Civilization is dying and will be incapable of revitalizing itself. In terms of ‘race’ he may well be right. However, Western Civilization was never really about ‘race’ at all. It was about God and Christianity. How did the blond-haired, blue-eyed Nordic barbarians become some of the most advanced people in the world? They were completely illiterate primitives at the time of Christ, while the dark-skinned, dark-haired, dark-eyed Romans and Jews were reading and writing Greek, Latin and Hebrew and living in the most advanced civilization in the world. The Vikings later prospered, not because of their fair skin and blue eyes, but because of their conversion to Christianity and the culture that it spawned.

In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you
have obeyed My voice.

– Genesis 22:18

Put simply, Pat Buchanan, among others, mistakenly believes that Western Civilization is, and was, more about race than religion and culture. He sees the massive wave of Hispanic immigration to the United States, not as something to celebrate, but as something to despise. He despairs at the statistics showing that white Europeans are about to start declining in population very soon rather than bewailing the bland agnosticism and anti-Christian hostility that many white Europeans now express as ‘universal’ values for a future humanity. Americans, especially devout white Americans, should not be afraid of the changes that are about to take place in this country. During the 21st century, the United States is about to become darker in skin color, but far more Christian than it is presently. Samuel Huntington writes:

A slow process of racial blurring is occurring both biologically from intermarriage
and symbolically and attitudinally, with individual multiracialism becoming a more
widely accepted norm. Americans approve of their country moving from a multiracial
society of racial groups to a nonracial society of multiracial individuals.

The so-called ‘lecherous’ and ‘promiscuous’ dark-skinned hordes are not about to stand for the obviously pornographic and anti-Christian culture that American society now has. Society is about to become far more moral as Asian, Hispanic and African Christians increasingly marry into the majority white population. Latin Americans will not put up with the pornography, Asian Americans will not put up with the hedonism and promiscuity, and African Americans will not put up with the continued destruction of the black family for very much longer. The statistics show the following:

77 percent of blacks, 68 percent of Latinos, 67 percent of Asians, and 53 percent of
whites said it made no difference whether people married someone of their race or of
a different race. As one professor of sociology commented, ‘interracial marriages and
their approval is increasing terribly fast. If you have hang-ups about interracial marriage,get over it. The train’s left the station.’

It may take a century or two, but Western Civilization is slowly being replaced by what could be called American Civilization, a multiracial, possibly bilingual, mainly Christian phenomenon. Pat Buchanan’s dire predictions and race-baiting theories are a reflection of his own bigotry and not a good indicator of what to expect within the next one to two hundred years.

Now the LORD said to Abram, ‘Go forth from your country, and from your
relatives, and from your father’s house, to the land which I will show you and I
will make you a great nation. I will bless you and make your name great, so you
shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you
and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.’

– Genesis 12:1-3

Secular liberalism does not create lasting interracial ties. Monogamous, heterosexual Christian love between a man and a woman does and there is no denying that simple fact of nature. Everyone knows that Europe, especially Northern Europe, is becoming more Socialist politically and economically, and more feminine and homosexual culturally. How could these blond-haired, blue-eyed, staunchly heterosexual, former barbarian giants become so effete so quickly? The answer is the surprising loss of Christian sexual morality that has occurred since the end of World War II.

Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening as Lot was sitting in the gate
of Sodom…They turned aside to him and entered his house; and he prepared a feast for
them…Before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, surrounded the house, both young and old…and they called to Lot and said to him, ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we may have anal sex with them.’ Lot went out to them at the doorway, shut the door behind him, and said, ‘Please, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.’

– Genesis 19:1-7

Europe is wrong about a great many things. First, the future is not some elite sect of white, Socialist, sexually degenerate, unmarried citizens ruling over an unruly dark horde of devout African Christian families and monogamous, culturally conservative Muslims. If it is, then that future is doomed to failure within a few short generations. The Christian and Islamic masses would not put up with being ruled by pagans for very long. The white liberal outlook is also destined to extinction because, soon enough, Black or Asian Christians, straight from the third world, will rightly identify their agenda as degenerate perversion that is attempting to destroy the family unit and replace it with state-controlled nurseries filled with children who will never know their fathers at all. They may grow up never knowing their mothers either. Europe’s future utopia without the family is simply a pagan daydream and nothing more.

When they had brought them outside, one said, ‘Escape for your life! Do not look behind you, and…escape to the mountains, or you will be swept away.’ The sun had risen over the earth when Lot came to Zoar. Then the LORD rained down on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire…and He overthrew those cities, and all the valley, and all the inhabitants of the cities. But Lot’s wife, from behind him, looked back and she became a pillar of salt.

– Genesis 19:22-26

Western Europe, now a bastion for atheist stupidity and barely disguised ethnocentric Socialism, is Christianity’s present sorrow. Its hope lies in Asia and Africa, especially China, Vietnam, Japan, and India. Rest assured, these stubborn nations who have refused the Christian message more than once, remain quite capable of shedding their pagan traditions and becoming new additions to the Kingdom of God. These nations must be converted, because paganism has no future, it only has a past. Rest assured, if Christianity does not do this, Islam will. Only a member of the international elite, who chats with his fellow agnostics at Starbucks about the brilliance and sophistication of the European single mother, would believe otherwise.

 

Judeo-Christian-Islamic Peace Activism

Isaac, the Jewish Son of Abraham

On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, ‘To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates.’

– Genesis 15:18

In 1948, the United Nations voted in favor of the creation of a Jewish nation-state called Israel. For the first time in literally 2,000 years, the Jews were once again to have a country that they could truly call their own. After centuries of wandering from place to place, and suffering terrible, and undeserved, abuse at the hands of both Christians and Muslims, the Jewish people were finally back to where they originally started. This was predicted in the Old Testament. It reads:

Even if you are exiled to the ends of the world, from there the LORD your God will gather you, and from there he will bring you back. The LORD your God will bring you into the land that your ancestors possessed, and you will possess it. He will make you more prosperous and numerous than your ancestors.

– Deuteronomy 30:4-5

Since its inception, Israel has been fighting for its very survival against the hostile Muslim nations that surround it. Mostly due to their military expertise, the Jews have so far managed to fend off these numerous attacks. This is to their credit, but it does not solve the problem that they are now facing. Islam, for whatever reason, has flatly refused to accept even the existence of Israel and continues to advocate for its destruction. There is every reason to believe that the next attack upon Israel will not be committed by conventional forces, but by an act of nuclear terrorism. The worst part about this possibility is that Israel might not even know who is responsible. The question is how it would respond to such violence. It seems more than probable that if Israel suffers an assault from an atomic bomb, Mecca, Baghdad, Ammon, Cairo, Beirut and Damascus will end up being destroyed in retaliation. The entire Middle East would go down in flames.

Now it came about after these things, that God tested Abraham, and said to
him, ‘Abraham…Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go
to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains
of which I will tell you.’ Then they came to the place of which God had told him and
Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood, and bound his son Isaac and laid
him on the altar, on top of the wood. Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to kill his son. But the Angel of the LORD called to him from Heaven and said, ‘Abraham, Abraham!’ He said, “Do not stretch out your hand against the lad, and do nothing to him, for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.’

– Genesis 22:1-12

This possible nuclear exchange could well trigger a world economic super-depression and cause massive shortages in oil, which would last for years if not longer. World War III would be a distinct possibility. Most Muslims know that any nuclear terrorist attack upon the state of Israel would be suicidal. Sad to say, there are more than a few extremists that are willing to commit that suicide anyway, regardless of the consequences. That is the most terrifying aspect of the situation.

Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram and behold, terror and great darkness fell upon him…It came about when the sun had set, that it was very dark and behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a flaming torch
which passed between these pieces.

– Genesis 15:17

The destruction of Israel does not necessarily mean the end to Judaism or to the Jewish people. Currently, there are more Jews living in New York City and the surrounding area than in all of Israel. If Israel does manage to survive the present danger represented by Islam and nuclear terrorism, there’s every reason to believe that the long-term security of the Jewish people may become a reality. Nuclear apocalypse is not inevitable whether it be in this generation or in the generations that follow. Hatred for Jews and Israel found in the nations of Islam can and will subside given enough patience and time. This may take a century, but it must occur in order to ensure the continued existence of the Jewish nation-state. Israel cannot survive among hostile neighbors indefinitely. Here are four case scenarios that explore the future possibilities of this nation:

Scenario: The Event *** The Results

Best Case: Palestine thrives. *** Peaceful coexistence with Israel is established through economic growth and self-rule.
Better Case: International Intervention. *** Israel and Palestine eventually agree to mutual disarmament, and eventual international government control of the entire region.
Worse Case: Nuclear War occurs. *** Israel barely survives nuclear attack. The entire Middle East is partially destroyed.
Worst Case: Nuclear Holocaust ensues. *** Israel is rendered unlivable and ceases to exist.

 

Judeo-Christian-Alliance

 

One should certainly hope, and pray, for the best-case scenario to win the day. There are, however, numerous threats that must be dealt with soon in order to achieve a lasting peace. Right now, Iran continues to work on an atomic bomb in the hopes of destroying Israel. Some contend that they already have a working thermonuclear device while others say that this is still years away. Regardless of who is correct, the odds are that the United States, a staunch ally of Israel, will put a halt to any real threat even if this involves military intervention. The top targets of nuclear terrorists and the cities most likely to suffer thermonuclear attack within the next few decades are as follows:

1) New York City: contains the largest Jewish population in the world.
2) Tel-Aviv: contains the 2nd largest Jewish population in the world.
3) Jerusalem: contains the 3rd largest Jewish population in the world.

As nearly everybody knows, all three of these targets contain millions of Jews as potential victims. Make no mistake, the fanatical Muslims want to kill as many Jews as they can regardless of the consequences. That is why these three cities are the most in danger of nuclear annihilation.

The angel of the LORD said to her, ‘Behold, you are with child…And you shall call
his name Ishmael. He will be a wild donkey of a man, His hand will be against
everyone and everyone’s hand will be against him and he will live to the East
of all his brothers.’

– Genesis 16:11-12

The only way to avoid these potential catastrophes is for Islam and its extremists to come to terms with the existence of Israel. This can and will be done through the elimination of dictatorships still found in many Muslim nations and their replacement with governments that do not spew hatred of the Jews while oppressing their own people. It is no coincidence that the Muslim nations least hostile to Israel and the Jews, namely Pakistan and Turkey, are also democracies. Free society does not mean the end to Islam, but to its renewal. As these nations develop beyond third-world status and rid themselves of dictatorial regimes, their hatred for Jews and Israel will most likely diminish. In the meantime, one must hope that Muslim terrorists never get hold of any weapons of mass destruction. From Hiroshima, Japan to Auschwitz, Poland, the answer must always be ‘never again’. Nothing else is more important.

Ishmael, the Islamic Son of Abraham

Now Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking. Therefore she said to Abraham, ‘Drive out this maiden and her son, for the son of this maiden shall not be a heir with my son Isaac.’ So Abraham rose early in the morning, took bread and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar…and sent her away. She departed and wandered about in the wilderness of Beersheba. When the water in the skin was used up, she left the boy under one of the bushes…for she said, ‘Do not let me see the boy die.’ God then heard the lad Ishmael crying and the Angel of God called out to Hagar from Heaven and said to her, ‘What is the matter with you, Hagar? Do not fear, for God has heard the voice of the lad Ishmael where he is. Arise, lift up the lad and hold him by the hand, for I will make a great nation of him.’ Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water; and she went and…gave the lad a drink. God was with the lad and he grew. He lived in the wilderness and became an archer.

– Genesis 21:9-20

Centuries ago, Christianity was a much simpler system of beliefs in that it was the truth, the Jews were wrong, and Mohammed was a heretic. Now that the religion of Islam has outpaced Christianity, it may be time to reassess this outlook. There are now more Muslims in the world today than Christians. Just recently, Pope Benedict has reached out to Islam, even to the point of visiting a Muslim country for the first time in history. The Church has unofficially softened its approach to this religion and is now willing to discuss whether or not Mohammed was, in fact, divinely inspired. To be sure, Muslims are still considered heretics, as are Protestants and Jews. However, the ability of Islam to last over 1,300 years is still worthy of attention. The acceptance of Jesus as a great prophet and the reverence for his mother Mary remain key components of the Muslim faith. The Church’s attitude towards this faith is now becoming similar to the way the Jews first viewed Christianity. As it is written:

If this endeavor or activity is of human origin, it will destroy itself. But if it comes
from God, you will not be able to destroy them; you may even find yourselves
fighting against God.

– Acts 5:38-39

Those Christians who remain wary of Islam should remember that, according to tradition, Muslims are not categorized as pagans and are instead considered fellow worshippers of the God of Abraham, the God of Moses and the God of Jesus. Instead, the Church always emphasized the heretical nature of Mohammed’s insistence to have been inspired by God through the archangel Gabriel. In truth, they have never really denied that Muslims worshipped the God of the Holy Bible, they have just objected to Mohammed’s refusal to accept Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of God, and to the claim he too was an actual prophet. The major religious differences between Christianity and Islam can be listed as follows:

Virgin Mary
Islam: Mary was a great, righteous woman worthy of reverence.
Christianity: Mary was the Mother of God. One may pray directly to her.

Jesus Christ
Islam: Jesus was a great leader and prophet, a man of God. He was not the Son of God or the Messiah.
Christianity: Jesus Christ was, and is, the only Son of God, the LORD and Savior of al mankind. One may pray directly to Him.

Mohammad
Islam: Mohammad was a prophet inspired by God (Allah) through the archangel Gabriel to write the Koran and found a new religion called Islam.
Christianity: Mohammad was not a prophet, but a heretic who rejected Jesus as his LORD and Savior. He also denied the truth of Christ’s resurrection and ascension into Heaven.

Thousands of years ago, Abraham’s son Ishmael, the traditional forefather of the Arab peoples, was cast out of his father’s tent along with his mother Hagar into the desert wilderness. The archangel Gabriel came and gave them comfort. Indeed, long before this divine intervention in the desert, it had already been foretold that Ishmael and his descendants were destined for greatness:

As for Ishmael, I hereby bless him. I will make him fertile. He shall become the father of twelve prince, and I will make of him a great nation.

– Genesis 17:20

Throughout the centuries, the Church has found it extremely difficult to convert any true Muslims, especially Arabs, to Christianity. The reverse has also proven true in many cases. Perhaps God meant for some of His subjects to follow a different prophet than Jesus or Moses and that religion is called Islam. One thing is for sure, Muslim fanatics, who believe that they are at war with the West and advocate terrorism against it, are destined to become a thing of the past. Most normal Muslim families want the same thing that Jewish and Christian families desire- to raise their children in peace, to make a good living, and to worship God according to their own traditions.

For I have chosen him, so that he may command his children and his household
after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice.

– Genesis 18:19

Those in the West hoping for a new crusade against the infidel Muslims are probably going to be disappointed. It wouldn’t be much of a fight anyway and would cause irreparable harm to the Christian nations, while leaving the pagan nations of polytheistic India and Communist China untouched. Isn’t it better for Muslims and Christians to work together and compete fairly for the conversion of the pagans that remain in this world? Going to war would simply play into the hand of the devil and his lies that all Islam and Christianity ever managed to accomplish was to create war and bloodshed.

Now Abraham arose early in the morning and went to the place where he had
stood before the LORD and he looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and
toward all the land of the valley, and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land
ascended like the smoke of a furnace.

– Genesis 19:27-28

During the next century or so, the Muslim nations are destined to quit bickering with one another and begin to unite politically, socially, economically, and culturally. This should not worry the Christian West to any great extent as long as they have eschewed violence and warfare as an acceptable means to the end. Islam’s conglomerate of Muslim nations will not be going away, so it’s best to dealwith them now rather than wait for Mohammed’s empire to return. That is inevitable, going to war with them is not.

 

The Judeo-Christian-Islamic Empire of Abraham

China, the Oriental Son of Abraham

Now Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah. She bore to him Zimran and Jokshan and Medan and Midian and Ishbak and Shuah. Now Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac, but to the sons of his concubines, Abraham gave gifts while he was still living, and sent them away from his son Isaac eastward, to the land of the East.

– Genesis 25:1-6

Throughout known history one military fact has remained true. He who controls the high seas controls the entire world. Nations such as France, Germany, Italy and Japan have all tried to thwart this history and every one of them failed miserably. France attempted an Empire during the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte and failed at Waterloo. Some claim this was the work of British carrier pigeons trained by the Rothschild family. More recently, Germany, Italy, and Japan also attempted their own private Empires during World War II and ran straight into the British Navy and, even worse, their affiliate, the American Navy. Because of their inherent weakness at the high seas, they were all destined for defeat and international dishonor.

 

The Occident (West) and the Orient (East) of the Judeo-Christian Tradition

 

Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine who was a priest of God
Most High. He blessed him and said, ‘Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor
of heaven and earth and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies
into your hand.’

– Genesis 14:18-20

Control of the high seas has passed hands several times throughout history. Empires have risen and fallen almost exclusively due to the influence of naval power. This power, wielded by the few and coveted by the many, brought immense amounts of wealth to those nations who were actually lucky and skillful enough to have obtained it. A brief historical sketch of those who have controlled the seas throughout the ages is as follows:

Israel –> Greece –> Rome –> Venice –> Spain –> Britain –> United States

During the cold war, control of the high seas was shared between the West, represented by the United States, and the international Communist Empire, represented by the Soviet Union. It was clear, even at the time, that the Americans still had the upper hand. Today, now that Russia is a liberal democracy slowly crawling out from under its Socialist past, that upper hand has grown considerably. Currently, the United States is without a doubt, the sole superpower and undisputed ruler of the high seas. The question is how long they will be able to maintain this dominance. The United States Navy is literally decades ahead of its potential rival, Communist China. Unfortunately, if there is to be a World War III it will be fought with China and the consequences will be disastrous.

Indeed I will greatly bless you…and your seed shall possess the
gate of their enemies.

– Genesis 22:17

Examining the situation with an open mind, one can properly point out that this confrontation is not inevitable. If China decides to rid itself of Communism and slowly turn aside from their suicidal ambitions to become a military superpower, especially a naval superpower, then the United States can continue in its control of the high seas indefinitely. This means, practically speaking, that the U.S. Navy will maintain its military superiority for centuries to come, but there is one problem with this scenario, however, and it has to do with economics. Can the U.S. afford to do this? Not really and in the long run not at all. Regardless of whether or not China transforms itself into a democratic society, it is already destined to become an economic super-giant sometime soon. Within a century, China will have an economy that is vastly larger than that of the United States and will thus be able to afford enough defense buildup to eventually overwhelm the U.S. in terms of military might. The most likely scenarios for a future China are as follows:

Scenario I. World War
China: All-out thermonuclear warfare ends in complete devastation of China.
United States: Would most likely win the war, but most of the U.S. would be, quite literally, destroyed.


Scenario II. Civil or Regional War

China: Somewhat more likely considering China’s past and their current situation.
United States: Would become involved as a peacemaker with possible military intervention.

Scenario III. Peace & Democracy
China: In time, a Christianized China will inevitably become an Imperial democracy.
United States: China and the U.S. live in peace forever, resulting in a global government centuries later.

 

Israel (NW), China (NE), Islam (SW), Christendom (SE)

 

China’s historical position as a ‘gentle giant’ of the East may, in fact, hold true for the future. The reason why is that the next move in this endgame is the fate of Taiwan, where the exiled nobility and royalty of Imperial China now reside. It has remained a free ally of the United States for the past fifty years and seems to be the likeliest hotspot of any future hostilities. It is most probable that the United States will, in fact, go to war with Communist China if they attempt to take this democratic nation by force. Near run-ins have already occurred and it is simply a matter of time before China once again reaches out in frustration. There is also a chance that this may not happen. One can only hope for peace, and given the overall picture, it doesn’t appear that China plans upon committing national suicide anytime soon. Conspiracy theorists are convinced that historians called it a Cold War because they somehow knew that a Hot War with China, or Russia, was destined to happen at some point in the future. Thankfully, conspiracy theories usually always turn out to be wrong.

May the LORD God bless you in the name of St. Judas Maccabaeus.
