Should Russia import evangelical pastors like New York’s pastor Timothy Keller who says “being gay doesn’t send you to hell”?
Does Russia’s Orthodox Christianity have a Rob Bell, kissing up to the sodomites, calls sodomites “passionate disciples of Jesus just like I’m trying to be. So lets all get together and try to do something about the truly big problems in our world, that I believe would have us ban together and tackle together”?
How about Obery Hendricks of New York Theological Seminary who makes himself to be a man of love while he says that Christians who go against sodomites will go to hell:
…[A]ll people are equal under the law, so constitutionally everyone should have the right to sacralize, to marry, to have all the rights of the one they love, whether its in the same sex or not. … Jesus gave us one major way to judge one another, thats the end of Matthew 25. He said ‘if you have not done it to the least of these, you have not done it to me.’ As you have not fed the hungry and clothe the naked and shelter the homeless, you have not done it to me. He said those who don’t look out for one another — he said that they are the ones who are going to go to hell.
I would have discussions with Theodore about Putin’s anti-gay legalistic attitude. Theodore countered by asking:
Tell me, when Jesus went to the temple in Jerusalem, and He saw what thievery was being done there, He did not ask for “a dialogue,” or a conversation or did He give a lecture on “law” versus “grace”. He did none of these. He had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple including the sheep and the oxen and poured out the changers money and overthrew the tables and said unto them that sold doves, take these things and don’t make my Father’s house an house of merchandise (John 2:15-16). In Acts 5, Peter struckSapphira and Ananias dead for cheating the community and Paul struck the wizard Barjesus with blindness (Acts 13:10-11), so if Russia wants to outlaw psychics and gay bars or if it wants to make Orthodox Christianity the main church, all power to them.
To Theodore, it’s not a matter of religious equality.
What is the limit of tolerance? Why do we insist that Christians in Syria, Iraq, Sudan, Central Africa, the Mindanao in the Philippines, and Pakistan not carry arms and fight their abusers while we fancy ourselves with the “right to bear arms”?
What love is this?
Where are the evangelical applauses for Russia’s crackdown on the gay agenda?
Such silence is not an issue of advancing love or Gospel, but that evil has many faces, including conservative; all the Christian cults have a conservative façade.
Why then should my American evangelical brothers join the ranks of the devil? We must then defend Evangelical Christianity from being influenced by the workers of iniquity and work tirelessly to save Christians from death.
What we must always do when we analyze our hearts is to review our works. Jesus commands us to think, “by their fruits you shall know them”.
Becoming a prophecy buff is not an example of “good works” but helping Christians and Jews in times of needs is.
How can we claim to emulate Christ and stand idle while Muslims kill Christians in Syria especially since Putin defends Christians?
And if the devil is sly, especially when Jesus said to be “as wise as a serpent,” we need to then ask; is the Prophecy Mania crowd paradigm on prophecy even godly?
The paradigm that “Gog is Russia,” “Vatican is Harlot,” and “Europe is anti-Christ,” is a view that is playing with fire and is a future catastrophe.
To explain this, let us assume, for an example a scenario arises that a conflict between Greece and Turkey comes about over sovereignty and related access rights in the area of the Aegean Sea, which later escalates into a military showdown between the two nations. Conflicts of this sort did happen. Assume that Russia will intervene and a greater crisis escalates and it’s a showdown; Russia goes against Turkey, a scenario that existed historically between the two nations.
Then we have eastern Orthodox nations also involved that want to bring the Hagia Sofia, the icon of the Christian east back to Christendom which Turkey currently is striving to convert it to a grand Muslim mosque.
Assume that one day the Vatican supports Russia and Greece in retaking Christian lands from the Muslims.
What would the prophecy crowd in the U.S. do?
To answer the question, we only need to review American prophecy buffs and the American policy in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Sudan and Central Africa where the U.S. has flipped the lives of Christians upside down. For decades they have lived in relative peace and today they—as result of U.S. policy—are being hunted and butchered. Such policy is not void of support by the prophecy mania crowd.
- One cannot argue that such policies in the Middle East were only a liberal agenda; very few in the evangelical circles initially opposed it.
It is a fact that American evangelicalism has been conservative morally but not so with foreign policy. With the exception of Israel, American evangelicals by large have supported the ousting of Mubarak of Egypt, Saddam of Iraq, Qaddafi of Libya, Bashar of Syria and the results were catastrophic to Christians.
Here is a photo of a Christian martyr in Iraq, after a Muslim blew himself up in a church. Is this what these prophecy buffs, who supported the ousting of Saddam, want?
- On record and throughout the years, I have voiced my view against all of these foreign policies since I have always kept in mind the rise of Islam to kill Christians.
This is why we must work to help deliver Christians from Islamic oppression. PLEASE DONATE TO SAVE CHRISTIAN LIVES
Such conservatism is misleading and Protestant nations will likely repeat history and support the Antichrist nation of Turkey in the future—as they do now—and as they did in 1571 during the Battle of Lepanto.
- The absence of Muslim-Catholic wars from their awkward interpretations was simple to explain; such struggle was described as the suffering of a “whore” who drinks the blood of saints, while the Muslim was simply “doing God a service”, not realizing that Arabia’s Islam was the vampire who hadn’t had its fill of sanguine Christian blood. I was always astonished; how can killing Catholics serve Allah, the false God of Islam, and also serve the true God of the Bible?
To these Islam was not even on their radar. It mattered little prophetically when I explained how the Bible in Revelation 13:2 was speaking of the greatest threat to Christianity. It was Islam that became this threat (beastly nation) as predicted in Scripture that occupied the region that was prophesied by John: Lion (Babylon), Bear (Persia) and Leopard (Asia Minor).
What prophecy buff spoke or even wrote of Lepanto when Catholic allies fought the Muslim Ottoman invaders? Fact is, Protestant states did not only support the Ottomans politically, but sent Protestant soldiers and supplied tin for the Turks to perfect their canons. In the end, most of the Protestant soldiers were killed fighting on the side of the devil while they were thinking that they were doing God a service. After all, they were killing Catholics who according to them was “Harlot”. In reality, they were serving the real harlot, Arabia’s Islam and Mystery Babylon.
Now we can understand the spiritual implications of all this and how we could think we are godly, when in fact, we have a form of godliness (2 Timothy 3:5) and are simply tracking prophecy as a time-table to bail out and not get involved with the real mission to produce good fruit.
The Muslims in Saudi Arabia are funding the slaughter of Christians so that they can literally obtain the blood of the saints and drink it. This is why we must help rescue the Christians. PLEASE DONATE TO SAVE CHRISTIAN LIVES
