Joy Reid, there’s a world of difference between the NFL and Church

Published

on

Taking a knee as a form of protest at an NFL football game is about revering oneself.  Bending a knee to the King and Creator of this world in church is reverent worship for the One who is Greater.

I completely understand and in no way deny the injustices and the plight that the African-American community has experienced in the United States.  For a nation that was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and the Christian Scriptures as a City on a Hill set apart, it is incredibly unfortunate to have a history of racism.  We were a nation in a theological crisis over race that couldn’t recognize the imago Dei of the whole created human race – red, yellow, black, and white (that’s a reference to a children’s song, not a racial slur, you snowflakes).

Nevertheless, I was born decades after the Civil Rights Act, legally and politically, recognized the rights to pursue the jobs you desired, and the rights to a good quality non-segregated education.  I was born in a time where I saw more black Americans experience more privilege making millions playing professional sports or becoming CEO’s of big companies than I will probably ever experience.  And I saw black and white Americans go to church together and experience the Communion Table together.

Today, Colin Kaepernick, the privileged black elites, Black Lives Matter, the progressive movement, and the Democrat Party protest alongside Islamist terrorists like Linda Sarsour.  Their protests turn into movements that extend the sexual revolution by dismantling the nuclear family, and stand in solidarity with the baby butcherers and baby part traffickers at Planned Parenthood.

What about the injustices being done to the predominately-black urban communities today, perpetuated by the progressives and the Democrat Party?  They endorse policies that make these urban communities into third world economies with gun free zones and failing government schools.  Black Lives Matter, and the secular humanists they’ve aligned themselves with, encourage broken families with no father.  They celebrate when abortion clinics open up on nearly every corner, as if it were a Starbucks, in these black urban communities.

Reactions

Final Thoughts

If you really want to protest injustice against the minority community in America today, protest the policies that Black Lives Matter and the Democrat Party force on your communities.  Protest the systemic racism of Planned Parenthood in their disproportionate targeting of black babies, the organization that Black Lives Matter is proud to support.  Protest the disarming of law-abiding African-Americans in urban cities like Chicago and Detroit with their gun free zones, while breaking up the black nuclear family.  Protest the failing public school system and lack of choice for better schools in urban communities.

Now, as a Christian Conservative, I have no love-lost for the American flag or the National Anthem.  They aren’t symbols that represent the Christian heritage of our Founding.  They represent our national rebellion against God.  The flag and the anthem represent 40 years of nearly 60 million slaughtered pre-born babies, a genocide worse than the commie genocides.  They represent a sexual revolution that mutilated and rebuked God’s natural order of creation and the Covenant of Marriage.  Why should I respect symbols that represent debt slavery and the centralized authority of Statism when those ideas run contrary to God’s Word?

But protesting a flag and anthem are missing the point entirely.  As Christians, we are to honor, not worship, our earthly king (1 Pet. 2:17).  Given the Pledge of Allegiance’s socialist origins, that is what I will be protesting and its unbiblical belief of indivisible, which bestows an attribute of deity (Dan. 3:18).

All in all, this entire reality show indulges our identity crisis as a nation, and the Church isn’t pursuing gospel reconciliation.  The Church is getting played by the Left.

William Barr nails the secular upheaval of Judeo-Christian morals

William Barr nails the secular upheaval of Judeo-Christian morals

Humans have a moral compass. We’ve had it for over 2000 years. Before we had it, there were other parts that were already being formed so mankind would have a basis for morality and absolute truth that differs from postmodernism or its emerging despicable cousin, the post-truth society of false absolutes based on personal feelings.

This moral compass is the Bible, and our adherence to Judeo-Christian beliefs as a nation and in many places around the world has helped mankind keep evil at bay. Our flawed efforts through the millennia have fallen short, not because the Word wasn’t perfect but because we are not perfect. This has eroded to the point that modern society is experiencing a secular upheaval forcing cataclysmic decay of our morality.

We are flawed. Progressives are trying to use these flaws to pull us further away from the truth of our existence and the only truly moral compass we possess. They’re doing it through media, education, and entertainment. They’re attacking churches, synagogues, and adherents to the Bible with an anti-Biblical worldview that is growing increasingly militant.

Attorney General William Barr recognizes this and expressed as much during a speech at Notre Dame last week.

William Barr’s speech on religious freedom should resonate with everyone who recognizes the degradation of our values as a people and a nation. The further we diverge from the Biblical worldview, the worse the world becomes.

Should Church be the mission field?

Should Church be the mission field

There is a growing prevalence of churches that want to draw people in to present the gospel. These churches, commonly referred to as “seeker friendly” churches have been one of the biggest trends in Christianity in the postmodern world. A comparison would be the analytics of Major League Baseball. Some people champion it; others loath it. For these seeker friendly churches are engaged in the advance usage of analytics and marketing. In the effort of not being dismissive in a traditionalist “get off my lawn” way, I want to examine, giving a fair shake, this prevalent trend in Christianity.

In the early church, it was inconceivable that churches would attract large audiences to present the gospel. During the time of persecution, Christians building coliseums for worship would have been lit as candles to light those coliseums while lions were fed to their brethren in an evening pagan spectacle. During the reign of the Papacy, this second phase of Christian history built cathedrals, however these architectural feats were never intended to be mission fields, rather home bases. The post-reformation segment of Christendom saw large gatherings and generational revivals but a large church does not equal a “seeker friendly” church. In American history, we have seen some readily obvious cycles of rebellion and repentance with the Great Awakenings. We aren’t in one of those periods of repentance as a society; we need to be, but I digress. If you build it and they will come is an entirely new phenomenon for physical churches.

I am unsure whether this phenomenon of seeker friendly is the result of the rebellion in our societies or a response to. However, many prominent proponents of seeker friendly churches have questionable theology such as Andy Stanley. Andy Stanley’s Deep and Wide is the bible for seeker friendly churches. There’s obvious problems with the seeker friendly church model that stem from belief systems that counter scripture, the Popularity Gospel as I have coined it.

But the original question was not contemplating the theological legitimacy of seeker friendly churches. Rather we are examining the use of church as the mission field which these famous megachurches’ methods have permeated into many bible believing churches. The origin comes from theologically void sources, however legitimate churches use much of these methods to increase the audience of the church, but I am wondering how these methods can increase the size of the church.

1Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, 2by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.

3For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 NASB

So if the church is to be the mission field why then is the church not interested in preaching the gospel every Sunday? Sermons on money don’t save. Sermons on not being “judgmental” don’t save. Not even sermons on loving your neighbor save. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 concisely articulates a saving message that Paul seems to have preached regularly during his time in Corinth.

Comfort

The Good News of Jesus Christ is a call to a painful death to self, daily. No work-around backdoor preaching in a way non-believers can agree with is a sufficient substitute. Using the physical building and programs as a mission field is an unprecedented means modern Christianity finds itself in. By no means, should we turn down innovative ways to baptize believers and make disciples. However, these means must do exactly that. If the church is to draw non-Christians, specifically church adverse people, in with music, atmosphere, and accommodations then the duty of the Church to Christ is to present the gospel daily.

Child abuse: CNN uses 9-year-olds as ‘transgender’ props at Equality Town Hall

Child abuse CNN uses 9-year-olds as transgender props at Equality Town Hall

Two distinct sciences – biology and psychology – contradict claims of inherent gender dysphoria in children. It’s not that it never happens, but study after study shows parental bias, abuse, or both are more prominent causes for children to believe they are misgendered than being “born this way.” Undeterred, the radical progressive left continues to promote the concept that child transgenderism is common and totally not the results of activist, misguided, or abusive parents.

During CNN’s “Equality Town Hall,” two 9-year-old children have been brought to the podium to ask questions of candidates. One such child, Jacob, was accompanied by his mother, Mimi Lemay, who happens to be a member of the Parents for Transgender Equality National Council.

Conservatives on Twitter were quick to point out the spectacle CNN was trying to propagate in their question to stay “woke” and relevant at the same time.

What? Only three Tweets? Fortunately, most Americans were either watching football, shopping for Halloween candy, or doing literally anything other than watching CNN’s town hall. It was that bad… from what I hear.

Here’s the reality of the Democrats’ agenda. They feel like they must pander to secure not only the votes of those in the community but also the large number of radical progressives not in the community, but who wish they were. This is 100% for nomination purposes only. Once a Democrat emerges victorious, the LBGTQ community will be pushed to the bottom of the Democrats’ and CNN’s priority list. Why? Because they represent a secure voting block for Democrats.

This is what makes it so unfortunate that children like Jacob are used to promote an agenda. At 9-years-old, he isn’t old enough to understand the complexities of politics. He’s also not only enough to be definitively experiencing gender dysphoria from a clinical perspective. Even progressive doctors acknowledge post-puberty sexual awareness is a prerequisite for true gender dysphoria to arise. At 9-years-old, he’s still just confused at best and brainwashed at worst.

Parents participating in this type of brainwashing should be investigated for abuse. Shame on CNN for promoting this type of child exploitation for the sake of appeasing those who hold a radical political ideology.
