If you want to understand the real nature of hypocrisy and godlessness than this article is for you. Donald Trump says that he will not forget the insults from the Muslim loving British politicians and tells David Cameron and the Muslim mayor in London that for their insults, he will not have a good relationship with England and he doesn’t care and that he will not forget. Britain better watch out, the Trump Train will eventually come for some reckoning.

Blasting Trump for his views on Islam began five months ago when David Cameron was angry about Trump’s comments on Islam. But this was when he thought that Trump will not make it through the primaries. Trump defied the norm and won. Now the politics show, Cameron with make up is covering his brown nose tries to save face:

So from this we know the correct definition of a politician (hint: see ass-kisser).

It is perhaps a good occasion to see what a politician is, who they are and what constitutes a politician. Everyone sees politicians on the other side of the fence as scum sucking pigs failing to notice the log in their own eye. Most people, when it comes to elections become “idol worshippers” of their party’s elect.

People today still worship fame while they condemn politicians. I once included a family on one of my events where I spoke alongside Glenn Beck. When Beck arrived this lady went frantic running after him with the typical gaping mouth begging for a signature. Amazed at this American phenomenon, I watched her face. It was as if Eve saw the forbidden fruit for the first time “pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom”. She gave Glenn a book as a gift. There was even a cripple on a wheelchair bolting after him as if he was on a wheelchair racing marathon who saw Beck as if it was Jesus who was about to tell him “arise and walk”.

Glenn refused to sign the cripple’s book and walked right into the green room. We then found the book the lady gave Beck in the trash bin and were glad to return it back to her hoping we burst her bubble of infatuation.

I’ve always wondered why people are mesmerized when they see someone they saw on TV.

Years later, we checked with this lady and now she can’t stand Glenn Beck. Her idol-god finally failed her.

We find the same phenomenon in churches.

But had the Lord Jesus snuck into most of these churches today and expressed Himself, most would have thrown Him out and instead replaced Him with the politician.

The crowning with thorns (Matthew 27:27-31; Mark 15:16-20; John 19:2-3) *oil on canvas *106 x 136 cm *signed t.r.: Baburen f. *1622-1623

We wonder how ancient Israel sinned yet we are no different from ancient Israel. Jesus came to Israel as well and they too threw him out. To say we are better than the Jews makes us just as worse as the politicians most people worship. Today we mock the Manna from heaven. We put Him, the Manna from heaven on our filthy hands. We pass Him around in trays and drop Him on the floor for the passerby to trample Him underfoot. We partake Him and sin throwing Him in that pigsty of our bodies we proudly call the “Temple of the Holy Spirit”. We fight over a toilet more than we fight for Christ. We ignore that it is the war on the sodomite that needs to be won, not the toilet. We refuse to punish, as Trump initially said, the ones who consent to abortion, and then even the anti-abortion advocacy groups condemned Trump, yet we falsely claim that we love life and we love Christ.

And when we denounced Trump, we denounced him by comparing him to Jesus. We expect only this one politician to be holy. “Look” we say “Trump says Two Corinthians instead of Second Corinthians”. We diligently search for specs. We then follow tabloids and watch all the utter nonsense making Caesar the Christ while forgetting that the key when we vote for a politician is to examine the nose: is it brown?

Instead, we search for puncture wounds on the politician’s hands and feet. I say Trump has less brown on his nose than others.

I am voting for a Caesar and not for a Christ. My vote is simply rendering unto Caesar what is Caesar’s. Yet these multitudes forget to render unto Christ what is Christ’s and instead they say “never Trump” regardless that a Hitler might win instead.

What is Christ’s is your repentance from your wicked ways and your worship of the politicians. To compare the politician with Christ is in itself idolatry.

People always look up to their idols. These idols are not only politicians. The great bulk of politicians are in reality pastors. These attract the highest membership and have more idol worshippers flocking every Sunday. They even call to dismantle walls higher than what Trump offers to build. They build wider gates so the damned who beg to enter believing they are all “saved” inviting multitudes and multitudes in the valley of hell.

So it is not just the politicians, the public voters and the pastors who are mostly idol worshippers. Churches by far hold the highest assembly of idol worship. Most churches if you dig deep into them are mere pigsties. In our days, a pigsty is even cleaner than most churches where they worship fame and refuse to condemn certain sins since it is politically incorrect.

And if you think my language is harsh, here, look how God describes Israel’s religious hypocrisy kowtowing to the enemy in Ezekiel 23:

Then the Babylonians came to her, to the bed of love, and in their lust they defiled her. After she had been defiled by them, she turned away from them in disgust. When she carried on her prostitution openly and exposed her naked body, I turned away from her in disgust, just as I had turned away from her sister. Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt. There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses. So you longed for the lewdness of your youth, when in Egypt your bosom was caressed and your young breasts fondled.

Here God describes these hypocrites copulating with well-hung donkeys who emit semen like that of horses. Me interpreting the verse will yield some condemnation. But it is what it is.

Imagine what will these churches do to God if He enters their place of worship to see them uplifting homosexuality and Islam. God does not use words of flattery:

At every street corner you built your lofty shrines and degraded your beauty, spreading your legs with increasing promiscuity to anyone who passed by. (Ezekiel 16:25)

Here God describes these places of worship as a prostitute with open legs, ready to be violated by any passerby.

Was God vulgar? No.

It is not vulgarity to describe spiritual whores by equating them in graphic detail.

We are to convict spiritual sin. To be “vulgar” is to use such language without excuse. John in Revelations described the end times religion as an amalgamation of religions. He calls it “mother of harlots” (plural harlots). He describes them in bed with Mecca’s Islam. This Mecca is copulating with all the kings of the earth. This is exactly what we see today. John even uses the word “whore” to describe the religion and the kings as adulterers in bed with her.

It can’t get any clearer than this. It can’t get any clearer than what we see today.

Isn’t this what Cameron of England and what every politician in the U.S. are doing, sleeping with Mecca’s Islam? Instead of condemning Islam, all these kings and politicians today would rather penetrate and satisfy the Kabba’s vulva through the only opening in the Kaaba’s black Hijab.

baraka02

God describes her well:

 “Let your private parts be exposed! Your genitals will be on display! I will get revenge; I will not have pity on anyone” (Isaiah 47:3)

The Kaaba’s vulva is “on display” and no one wants to even mention billions kissing a stinking vulva-idol. Matthew Henry gets it. This is Babylon:

[Isaiah] 47:1-6 Babylon is represented under the emblem of a female in deep distress.

Mecca will slowly be abandoned and will be in deep distress. Everyone is afraid to tell Muslims God’s message. Donald Trump has ceased to be a politician once he calls Islam what it is: dangerous. Even though the man is a sinner, he plays no hypocrisy here.

But even he might fail us tomorrow if we keep our ways as we failed him for condemning the mother to be punished for aborting her child. Why did all these religious zealots refuse to condemn the woman for opening her legs and the man who penetrated her? Instead, all these religious claiming hypocrites attacked Trump and exonerated the slut and her adulterer.

Millions upon millions today are deluding themselves. They go roundabout in churches thinking they are ‘saved’ while they worship sin and idols. They play all sorts of hypocrisies while believing that no one can snatch their salvation even if they live in continual sin.

Even salvation is sold cheaply by these whore mongers who open their legs to all passerby. So many twist scriptures today to appeal to the lowest common denominator in order to open the wide gate of this harlot’s vulva so that pastors can disseminate false religion and kiss a black stone. Today we have so many harlots, faggots and bastards reside even in the Vatican. We have defiled God’s temple. We have pigs in Evangelical mega churches where drums beat calling where these heretics walk “an altar”.

They say and do so many evils. Then they claim that everyone who says “Jesus” is saved once and forever. “Jesus” they say “saves us no matter what we do”. Never did we in history hear more than now that “once saved always saved”. We endure this almost in every single sermon and they only condemn to hell everyone who disagrees with this cheap theology. They fling verses in the air all taken out of context. Sold to masses who rarely even read the whole text in context. They utter verses like a demon who speaks abstracts. They vomit the verses as if it came out of shredder. They say “hear what the Lord said, once saved always saved” then utter a verse and change its meaning as if it was evidence:

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand.” (John 10:27-29)

What this verse is saying is what this verse is saying: His sheep obey and by their obedience He gives them eternal life and that no one can sucker them and snatch them from Him.

The verse is simply saying that His sheep are no fools. If you are easily snatched (suckered by the devil and man’s deceptions) you are not His sheep and will end up in hell.

This verse does not say ‘My sheep are saved and while they sin nothing can snatch them away’. Nowhere does the Bible teach that we can continue to sin and are still saved because ‘once saved we are always saved’.

And what about this one:

“Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35-39)”

Does this really need a seminarian interpreter? Is this verse describing Saddleback Church? Where in the world does this verse say: “Who shall separate us from the salvation of God?” It simply says “Who shall separate us from the LOVE of God“.

What this verse is saying is exactly what this verse is saying. It asks questions, can the following calamities make us separate from loving Christ? Will I not love Christ even if all these evils come upon me from persecution to even being slaughtered like sheep?

No one is slaughtering and persecuting these fakers who follow easy believism. I can even express this verse in modern terms: listen man, if you think demons or sending a rocket to the moon or tyrannies rising to slaughter me and skin me like sheep will stop me from loving Christ you are dreaming and the truth is not in you. I will never abandon Christ Who will never abandon me. This is not saying ‘once you are saved you will never be snatched away’.

This is speaking of the suffering church, that suffering Christians are in Christ’s hand and no one can pluck them from His hand. The opposite is also true. If you do not suffer for Christ then perhaps you are not sheep and most likely you belong in a Saddleback pigsty suckling off the nipples of Rick Warren.

The Pigsty Church

rick_warren_Elton_john

The true church has an ancient zeal that says ‘the world can go to hell and in no way will I abandon my love for Christ.’ It is that stubborn Maccabean attitude. If this verse was selling cheap salvation the verse would say “Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s salvation?” I can find plenty that will separate us from the salvation of God:

do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)

and:

sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensionsdivisions, envydrunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:19-21)

So what do these verses mean? They mean exactly what they say. Even including all these “divisions” in the church. Imagine all the men who created church divisions in the name of Christ. So many are the divisive who are idolized by the congregation. Many tickle ears and many will follow them teaching them doctrines of demons.

And what about:

“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” (Philippians 1:6)

So what does this verse mean? Again, it means just what it says. God Who initiated you to do good works (and yes there is that dreaded word, works) He will see to it that He will continue to use you to do these good works till the end of your service. This says nothing of ‘once saved always saved’ it says ‘if saved always works’.

And how about:

“who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

Again, what this verse is saying is what this verse is saying: God’s power guards us, but only through our faith for salvation. This does not say ‘through un-repented sin God guards us and we are saved’.

Faith is not simply belief it includes substance. The Bible says “faith without works is dead” “show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works”.

What it says is what it means.

There is no need for a slick interpreter. Hebrews defined faith as such that Abraham did not isolate faith that is void of works. So if it says that “Abraham our father was justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar” then he was justified by works since his works came from his “faith [which] was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works” (James 2:22). And when Noah had faith he spent over a century doing works building an ark. Faith therefore cannot be isolated and is defined by action and while the action itself ‘alone’ does not save, but that it emanated from that faith which does save.

Why can’t things be that simple? Indeed they are.

And how about:

“For God’s gifts and his call can never be withdrawn.” (Romans 11:29)

Again, what this verse is saying is what it is saying, God is not an Indian giver. He does not withdraw His gift of salvation. So take the gift. It is up to you to accept or reject that gift. For God’s gifts and his call can never be withdrawn by God. The withdrawing element is speaking of God not man. The Bible even clearly says that man can lose this gift:

“For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.” (Luke 19:26) “If a man abide [remain] not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.” (John 15:6)

False teachers always try to twist verses to say that you are ‘saved’ the moment you utter Christ in your heart and can sin without repentance and can still be saved. While initially it is true that you are saved the moment you believe but one must continue the marathon.

Here is another verse they use:

“It is not the will of God to lose any of his children” (John 6:39)

And again, what this verse is saying is what this verse is saying; God does not want to lose us. He wants us to remain in His pasture. However, if we wander off, the wolf could get us.  This is clear in scripture:

 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. (Hebrews 10:38)

One can peruse “assurance of salvation” and find thousands of articles. The key to finding the truth is to always ignore everything said and just stick with the biblical text. For example, on the first article I researched, which teaches this false theology, I began to peruse the verses only. What you will always find is that the claim has nothing to do with the text:

In the Old Testament, God said, “Come now, and let us reason together … Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool” (Isaiah 1:18). When God forgives you, it is complete.

Just try once and read the entire chapter of Isaiah 1 and see how conditional is this forgiveness. It really needs no interpreter. It is filled with God’s mandate of repentance.

 

Continuing the bad argument we read:

He Himself said, “I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake, and I will not remember your sins” (Isaiah 43:25).

Try reading the entire chapter of Isaiah 43 and see if this interpretation even fits. The whole context is that God demands repentance.

Then that article argues:

“Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.” [1 John 4:15] The Holy Spirit came and showed us the gospel—that Jesus is the Savior of the world and that by confessing Him as such, we come to know God.

But if one reads the chapter from verse 7 to the end, he will find out the context is clear, God was speaking about “love” which in the end it even concludes what this loving salvation really means:

“Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.” (1 John 4:20)

Thousands upon thousands of articles, books and empty arguments are all constructed to sell a lie. So beware of the wolf. He is a politician. He dresses up as a pastor. He could be a pedophile priest selling the gay agenda. He sells socialism and ecumenism. He sells the easy road to salvation. He twists scriptures. He uses selective verses while ignoring all the other verses. He at times could even be the Pope himself. He could be America’s pastor, a pop-star, an athlete … but the best way to recognize them is that he is treated like an idol.

A true messenger saint is hated, ridiculed, mocked, slandered and even murdered. I tell you the truth, most who are destined to hell are not just cultists, but idol worshippers. Therefore, examine yourselves lest you be one of those. Repent! Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him. Come to the ancient and the tried. Come to the aged wine. Forget the crowds and find a singing buddy and have joy in the midst of all the suffering.

    This has nothing to do with what you have written, but there are times I find myself wondering if I am a prelest.

    That said, it is true. The Way is extremely narrow, it’s like crossing the rickety bridge that many people are nervous to cross, but the native who have built the bridge know the bridge is sturdy and has been used by them for generations. It’s why I find myself drawing more and more closer to catholic orthodoxy, studying the writings of the Ante-Nicene Fathers, reading up on what Catholics, Orthodox, and Coptic are saying on specific topics that I gain a much better understanding of the Scriptures. The further away I move from the hyper-grace, happy-clappy evangelical cults, the more enriched I become from reading the wisdom of the ancient Fathers.

    I have much repenting to do, and I am sure I will have to do penance.

    • Eric

      Trevor, I sometimes wonder that myself.

      The Way is narrow indeed, and I am very thankful I was taught none of that heretical cultish stuff growing up. The way I was taught, accepting Christ was only the STARTING POINT of everything. It’s not like after that you can just sit there. You have to run the race, keep going, and sometimes make course corrections. People who are diligent in their Faith life will reap rewards. The people who are lazy will not. The Walk with Christ is life-long: it’s not a one-time visit.

      • “You have to run the race, keep going”

        Not you Superman 😉 you simply fly through the sky, through oceans, mountains and valleys, while me and 41 have to sing “Joshua row the boat ashore, hallelujah”

        • Eric

          I will fly ahead of you and Kamau while you row and scout for any threats, clear any boulders that may be blocking the stream, or. . .I’ll just carry the two of you into the sky with me, Sir. 🙂

        True wisdom.

        • Eric

          And I was taught that Wisdom by not only my parents, but the wonderful Pastors I’ve had throughout my life. I certainly did not discover that wisdom on my own.

      Prelest can happen to anyone, and what may be called ‘general Prelest’ is the common lot of all Mankind. We struggle to see in this life, looking through a glass darkly. A more specific Prelest is the result of Pride, in all cases, especially as one journeys closer to the Truth. Humility and trust in God, and the humble Jesus Prayer, are the weapons.

      • Trevor

        Thanks.

        • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

          You’re welcome Trevor. Those who are in the state of Preslest don’t know that they are, and have to be told so if they are to shake out of it, their ignorance and arrogance. Have confidence in the Lord, for He is Good.

    • You are gaining wisdom every day Trevor. I wonder where you will be at a few years from now.

      • Julie LaBrecque

        A Coptic Priest overheard me speaking about you, turns out he knows of you – knew you were from Palestine – this Priest is from the Dallas area.

        • Did he hate me or like me?

          Nice of you to pop-up every once in a while. We keep asking where you are these days. Now we know, you decided to remain for the rest of your life in a Coptic monastary 🙂

          Let us know every now and then that you’re still alive. We still need more to swat the trolls every now and then.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Its nice that my head is still connected so that I can pop-up – all I will say is that I hope that the second half of 2016 is kinder than the first half – too much has happened to go into here, I have periodically been in phone contact with Grandmere to keep her aware of what is going on. The Priest knew that you were from ‘Palestine’ (his actuals words were: “Walid Shoebat – he’s a Palestinian? I said “Yes, he was born in Bethlehem”‘, he said “I know him”. – he may have meant “I know who he is. He was an older priest, was overly gracious to me, gave me a a copy of the book of the Divine LIturgies of St. Basil, Gregory, and Cyril – he wrote my name in it, then signed it Fr Andrew Khalil (could be Khalid), also gave me copy of ‘The Agpeya”, Third and Sixth Hours – the prayers that the Coptic people are to pray daily at the 3rd and 6th hours. The whole experience was amazing, wish I could tell more here. I don’t know how well healed I am to resume swatting trolls, performance may be less than before, but I am ready to try. I have so many articles to read to get up to speed- thanks for your dedication.

          • Did not realize that the flue was such a thorn. Pray you do better. Tell Khalil to speak to Egypt. Some priests there work by fear. I dealt with a convert whom RC is helping and one priest threw him out when he asked to be baptized because they fear Egyptian security. Another I spoke to in order to confirm a case was too afraid. I can give him the names in private. Many are paranoid and operate by sheer fear. I guess its persecution. There are around 500 converts that need help and without feedback from the church in Egypt there is little we can do. That one Egyptian contacted a ton of organizations to help, he finally called us. We are working on sending him to Europe. Test Khalil’s metal first. Test the spirit, always.

            Nice of you to pop-up. Be well sister and let us know if you need anything.

    • Julie LaBrecque

      Hey Trevor!! You won’t believe this, but I met a Coptic woman and ended up going to the Coptic Church in Bixby (only one in Oklahoma) to observe their Mass – and ended up receiving a copy of “The Divine Liturgies of Saint Basil, Gregory, and Cyril” from the Priest – he wrote my name and signed it – their Mass is 3 hours long – the men sit on the left, women on the right, go barefoot up to receive communion, incense the entire Mass.

      • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

        Egypt is still alive, and has turned to and is faithful to God, the Coptic Remnant, of whom I am honored to have a few friends.

        Blessings!

          These Egyptians live in the Tulsa area, complete happenstance that I met the lady that I did – but I know it was providence.

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            Providence indeed-great people! My friends no longer live near me, and i’m much the poorer for that, but God knows best.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            I intend to someday go back – I have the phone number to one of the Parishioners that is in charge of the building – the priest that officiates flies in from the Dallas TX area – so they have Mass on Saturday rather than Sunday. All the people I met, about 9 of them, were wonderful people – and the Copt that I met that led to all this lives in Florida, she was only here visiting her son!!

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            As I say; great people!:-). They have an understanding, Coptic Americans, that few other Americans have. I was blessed at an early age, although I didn’t realize it enough at the time, what a wonderful influence they were on me at a critical time. I’m in tears now as I write this, as the good memories flood back:-). I will try to talk to and see them again soon as I’m able, God willing.

          • susan

            He flies in from Dallas? Does that mean there is a service in Dallas too?!? :))

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Yes- because there is no Coptic priest in Oklahoma one flies in from Dallas to Tulsa then back to Dallas – that is why the Mass is held on Saturday in the Coptic Church here in OK – the priest has to return to Dallas for Sunday Mass there.

      • susan

        Where is this church or what is the name? :))

        • Julie LaBrecque

          The name is St. Peter and St. Paul Coptic Orthodox Church – address is 17015 S. Memorial Drive, Bixby, OK. Funny thing about their church building, it formerly was a JW Kingdom Hall!! Well – that building is chock full of images now! I have a photo of the sign in front of the Church on my phone – the friend I met took photos inside of us, I’ll write you soon, if I can figure out how to get photos attached from my phone I will send them.

      • Trevor

        That’s wonderful! And what a throwback to the way the Jews worship in the synagogue.

        • Julie LaBrecque

          It was an awesome experience – when finished, they cover the ‘consecration’ area with a veil – so much to absorb.

          • Trevor

            Fascinating. Why would they cover the area with a veil?

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    “Voting for a Caesar, not Christ”… Well said. And I assure one and all, Trump is a “Caesar”. We are at that stage, with all Republics, where they begin to shift back to Monarchies. Julius Caesar was a Great Man, maybe not so much a good man, a Pagan before Christ. But he made the Roman Empire in which Our Lord was born, possible. God used Caesar, and uses Great Men today, to work His Will.

    • Well put Orthodox. Well put.

      • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

        Thank you mr. Shoebat, and pray for me a sinner.

TV personalities, whether news reporters, program hosts, television chefs, etc., experience much the same as Hollywood actors who have “acquired” a following of fans who want the opportunity to meet the TV personality, get an autograph and have pictures taken with the individual. This from the experience of being a small town anchor/news reporter who could not walk into a restaurant and enjoy a meal without people coming up and asking for an autograph. A walk in a downtown street was no longer enjoyable and it wasn’t until I left broadcasting and moved away from that city that I felt free to enjoy life out in public again.

    • Indeed. Most people think that public life and being a public figure is fun. It is not. People think that happiness is what everyone wants. Happiness can only be accomplished when we swim against the tide in order to avoid the water fall.

      it would be dreadful to be a celebrity. be thankful if you are not one and can have a normal life however long it may be.

      • Thank you, mspip, and, yes, I am thankful to no longer be noticed in public as a “TV celebrity” and can enjoy just being in a crowd of people with no one swarming to ask for an autograph. I live several hundred miles from the city in which I reported news on television. Feels great to live a normal everyday life and I certainly understand why some celebrities seek seclusion from the public as they are really no longer a private citizen. Thank you for your comments. 🙂

    ‘A true messenger saint is hated, ridiculed, mocked, slandered and even murdered.’ Indeed…the road is very narrow.

    • Indeed, and we row with our crucifixes 41, crossing oceans in the marathon of eternity.

        Amen and together we will.

    Dang! Just when I was finally soaring high enough to grab ahold of Superman’s cape, you write this article and pop all my balloons. Now I’m throwing dust on myself and looking for a place to repent of my latest sins. Thank you Walid. This is just what I needed.

    TRUMP 2016! 🙂

      Well Said, Susan! Me Too:)

    • Don’t forget the sackcloth Susan, it goes well with the dust.

        Will do. 🙂

    God Bless You Walid. Your works inspire me..as do the comments. Always Beware of Form over Substance. It’s a sneaky one:)

    • “Always Beware of Form over Substance. It’s a sneaky one:)”

      Amen SBJ. They have a form of godliness.

    This would be a good one for all the politicians and world leaders to memorize:

    “16Now a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”

    17″Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, obey the commandments.”

    18″Which ones?” the man inquired. Jesus replied, ” ‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, 19honor your father and mother, and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.”

    20″All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”

    21Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

    22When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.

    23Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

    25When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”

    26Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

  • Impeach Obama Now!

    Cameron’s comments are all Lib Revolting! He should be removed from office before it’s too late! He is totally destroying England!

    • Flame blue

      If Cameron goes, then Jeremy Corbin will be Prime Minister, and he is a Communist, He wants open borders to allow millions to enter and Islamophy the Land. He loves Muslims, and has barely disguised his anti-semitism. Take it from me, that with Cameron gone, the floodgates will be dismantled. I am British!

      Cameron is walking a tightrope, there certainly was no need for him to slander Trump and say silly statements against him, but without doubt he was compromised by the Muslims who demanded that he vilify Trump …or else! That’s how bad things are here!

        Any chance of political leaders from the right gaining any favor in the U.K. fairly soon, or will it take nightmare scenes in London under the new mayor to start to transform people?

    Excellent article, l totally agree 100% with it.

    When l see that sexual icon known as the black stone, it looks intirely like a female vulva, and it even has like pink skin moulded around it. In fact one cannot even see anything of a black stone, just metal around it made to look like a female part.

    It is nauseating looking at it, seeing Muslim hands and lips on it, in adoration. Islam is such an obviously evil religion, in many areas it doesn’t even purport to be good but shows its demonology, so it’s incredible that all this evidence of where it came from …Satan, is being ignored and it is obvious that demons have flourished within this religion, in human form, the demonically possessed, who are liars and want the World to be ruled by Satan..Lucifer, Allah, the serpent, the beast, the Greatest Deceiver. We have all the evidence we need, the proof, that many of these demonically possessed people would kill for Satan as his book instructs them to. They are opposed to God, and those who worship God, and they are spiritually bound to kill the followers of God, the Creator. That’s why they do it, and have always done it, and will always do it, until the Day our Lord destroys them.

    To witness politicians supporting these demon possessed people who are intent on rising to power in Britain, Europe, America, everywhere, is alarming. To listen to priests preaching on how we must love and care for and accommodate demons, masquerading as humans, is alarming. Anyone, apart from little children who embraces and promotes this demonic religion is a demon in human form. I abhor them all because l know what they are, and l attempt to turn them to Jesus for removal of demons and cleansing.

    May Donald Trump continue to triumph!

    • Its nice once in a while to get a Flame Prize Award with a 100% approval rating. After reading your comment and to even be more generous, I agree with your comment 110%.

      • Flame blue

        Ha, ha, brilliant. Yes, you have to be excellent to get 100% from me and my friend. But we love you !

      • mspip

        it’s time to wake up…… the alarm clock is sounding! scanned quickiy. will look more thoroughly later on.

  • Thanks Julie. Very few will see. It is a narrow gate and its even getting narrower.

    Nobody is without sin. Proverbs shoots that down in a hurry.

  • AnthonyM

    Rick Warren of the Saddleback (or is it Brokeback??) church seems like a real piece of work. Being in a position of responsibility carries a weigh of many souls.

    I didn’t realize some parts of the Old Testament were so frank, or colorful.

    You said “Indian giver” Walid! Ahhhhhhhhhh!

    Just kidding. Good article, and good video selection.

    “Unfaithful creatures! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” – James 4:4

    “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” – Gen 3:15

    “For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, indeed it cannot; and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” Rom 8:7-8 (hostile is same Greek word which is elsewhere translated enmity)

    And, of course, Galatians 5:19-21 which also contains the word “enmity” was quoted in the article…

    I misread something: or tyrannies rising to slaughter me and skin me like sheep will stop me from loving Christ you are dreaming and the truth is not in you. I thought you were talking about trannies rising to slaughter me….

    On the whole you are right, but Cameron is one of the better breeds, genuinely so, l believe. He’s sensible and fairly honest as a politician. He needs to be tougher, but he’s stronger than many. I do think it’s immoral to propose a referendum to exit Europe, but then attempt to persuade the electorate to stay in the EU.

    The quicker the EU fails, the better for the nations of Europe. These nations can still trade with each other, and we can all visit each other for holidays. We can even obtain work permits by mutual agreement, we don’t need an EU State. We don’t need or want mad Merkel running Europe and endangering it.

    The East Germans were trained in Communism and athiesm, just like their control master of the time. Russia changed but Eastern Germans haven’t, they have brought their backward ideas with them, now they want a fascist religion to go with their communism. Merkel is not fit to govern a democratic country, let alone have power and influence in Europe.

  • Flame blue

    Yes, l have heard that too. In fact Edward and the Queen mother and other royals had made propaganda films in support of the Nazis, in the event of Hitler winning, and at a certain point they were seeing that strong possibility. However, Nazism did not breed in Britain, it was not born in Britain. It was a German ideology.

    Obviously, when Leaders and Royals are defeated, they aim to survive by deceiving their former enemies to believe that they had underlying sympathies with the ideology of the victors. Self survival is the name of the game, and perhaps live to fight another day. This is why we are seeing politicians embracing Islam, rather prematurely, l think, but it’s back the strong horse, he’s winning, woe to us, we had better pretend that we were for them all along.

      Thank you. I can see why I couldn’t find a listing at dictionary.com! It sounds like me. More than once in my life I have felt I knew a lot! Recently I’ve had to conclude I know very little as it needs to be known. I’m still weak and pathetic. God have mercy on me, a sinner.

      • Trevor

        You and me both. As a dear Orthodox friend told me, the fact we are aware of it is an encouraging sign. It’s those who refuse to acknowledge the possibility of being a prelest that are in the greatest danger.
