Since God doesn’t look on the outside, should you dress like celebrities?

Liberal Christians today are a very deceived bunch of people. They claim to go by the name of Christ but live like the rest of the world. A classic example is the popular saying “God doesn’t look on the outside but at the heart”.  Agreed that this is what the LORD told Samuel when choosing David as a king:

“But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.” (1Sam 16:7)

So taking this Scripture ref. in to account, men and women who call themselves Christians find the liberty to cover themselves in tattoos, piercings and clothes that exhibit all the feminine curves. Don’t even dare tell them that their sense of fashion is an abomination to God; you will be attacked with the verse quoted above. In fact, they will tell you that immoral fashion it is not distracting anyone from worshiping God. There are even worship leaders that dress like Hollywood celebrities. In that case, the Apostle Paul made an unforgivable blunder when he commanded women to dress modestly. 

Even men lie when saying that a women’s suggestive clothing doesn’t stop him from focusing on God – yeah right! Are you really not distracted when a liberal Christian girl is dressed in tight mini-skirt jumping in front of you during a worship session? (These worship sessions are mostly music worship instead of God worship, but that’s another topic.)

And girls, as if you don’t know that you are causing men (who you call your brothers in Christ) to sin?

Anyhow, coming down to what God is saying in the verse quoted above, notice that He is referring to the physical  structure of a man (or a woman). “Countenance” and “height of the structure” refer to the attributes with which the person is born. People judge others based on these attributes: short men, black people, ugly nose, no curves etc. The physical characteristics, which you can’t do anything about, is what the LORD is referring to. No one is born with tattoos, low-cut tops or piercings. (If you had tattoos before you came to the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, you are pardoned. However, it is those who know His grace yet go on to look like the heathens.)

There are portions in the book of Psalms and Proverbs that say that a woman who leads a man astray with her words is an adulteress. However, women don’t need to speak words in order to lead men to stray; she simply has to show off her curves and/or skin.  You could cover all your skin by wearing a tight outfit, it will still display your curves. It is a proven fact that men naturally tend to respect women that dress modestly and carry themselves with dignity and self-worth rather than items of lust. And trust me girls, real men prefer a properly dressed woman.

As to the argument that God looks at the heart: your thoughts, your sense of fashion, your words, you habits — they all display what’s in your heart, and what God is actually looking at. What’s on the inside shows on the outside. If you revered and feared the absolutely holy and righteous God, you would think a 100 times before dressing like a celebrity or heading to the tattoo parlor.

American Churches to Embrace Islam on 26 June 2011

After reading the following write-up by NETB, one would expect Muslims in the Middle East to unite with Christians there; inviting them to read Bibles in their mosques instead of butchering them! Well, what exactly is the purpose for these Christians to invite Muslims to their churches? Rick Warren better visit the Mid East soon!

 

American churches to deny Jesus Christ on June 26, 2011 –

 

NTEB has reported extensively on the growing Chrislam movement. Started in part by Rick Warren of Saddleback Church, it has grown dramatically and now has infected many hundreds of churches and denominations all across America. A new group called Faith Shared is now spearheading the move to merge Christianity with Islam, and in the process provoking the very judgment of God down upon us as a nation. (NOTE: Rick Warren is not affiliated as far as we know with Faith Shared.)


The following is taken directly from their website:

“Faith Shared asks houses of worship across the country to organize events involving clergy reading from each other’s sacred texts. An example would be a Christian Minister, Jewish Rabbi and Muslim Imam participating in a worship service or other event. Suggested readings will be provided from the Torah, the Gospels, and the Qur’an, but communities are encouraged to choose readings that will resonate with their congregations. Involvement of members from the Muslim community is key. We will also provide suggestions on how to incorporate this program into your regular worship services. And we will assist local congregations in their media and communications efforts.

While there is a strong preference for all of the events to happen on the same day, a number of congregations held interfaith services in January and February giving us wonderful examples of how communities can come together in support and fellowship. We will be posting photos, sample programs and audio files from theses services.

Faith Shared will collect images and videos from these events to use in our efforts to spread this message of respect and understanding from America.

Tensions around Islam in America have erupted throughout the country in the past year, leading to misconceptions, distrust and in some cases violence. News stories on the rising tide of anti-Muslim bigotry and violence abound, with graphic and often searing images of the antagonists, the protagonists and the battlegrounds where they meet. All too often, media coverage simplistically pits Muslims against would-be Qur’an burners, neglecting any substantive representation of where the majority of Americans actually stand: a shared commitment to tolerance and freedom. We are committed to ensuring that the storyline changes dramatically in 2011 by helping to create an environment of mutual understanding and respect for each other’s faith traditions.” source – Faith Shared

“Women’s Day” – An Old Soviet Propaganda Ploy

 

International Women’s Day (Tuesday, March 8) is a longtime Communist propaganda tool. What does it say when an official Soviet holiday is enshrined in our mainstream culture? Clearly, Communism isn’t dead; it has just morphed into other forms like this one.

It confirms Norman Dodd’s famous claim that Ford Foundation President Rowan Gaither told him, in 1954,  that the agenda was to “socially engineer” US life so that “that it can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union” as part of banker-controlled world government.

Every year the supposedly capitalist media echo the Soviet bromides, and every year I post this rebuttal. 

CELEBRATING WOMYN
“Women’s Day” pretends to celebrate women but the poster near my Winnipeg home shows an ugly, surly shrew brandishing a hammer. She looks demonically possessed. The caption reads, “if I only had a hammer..” 
She’d what? Hit men over the head? Tear down society?  Smash women who want husbands and children? 
This isn’t far-fetched. Under the dance notice, the poster actually says: “Come smash patriarchy at midnight!” 
Women participating in the march are asked to bring “your hardhats, tool belts, safety vests and ideas for change.”  Typically Communists celebrate women by redefining them out of existence, as males i.e. carpenters.
Through its feminist surrogate, Communists have stripped women of a secure and honored social identity as wives and mothers, and made them workers and sexual commodities, hostages of the economy and the ravages of age.
Obviously this event is not about recognizing women for their grace, beauty, charm and intelligence. It is about cultivating a false sense of grievance and entitlement in order to manipulate them.
They used the same tactic with Jews, Blacks and workers and harnessed these groups to their agenda. The ultimate goal is to concentrate all wealth and power in the Illuminati (Masonic) central banking cartel which is colonizing the whole world. The real meaning of “change the world” is the establishment of a totalitarian New World Order. 

“USEFUL IDIOTS”
International Women’s Day is hate against women and society perpetrated by the traitorous banker colonial establishment, which includes most “feminist” politicians, educators and the mass media. Women who participate are dupes and “useful idiots.” 
It is a vestige of Communist “popular front” movements first organized in the 1930’s to ensnare naive idealistic people using feel-good platitudes like “equality,” “peace” and “human rights.”  These rubes didn’t know that the movements were funded and run by Moscow. The purpose was to alienate the intelligentsia from their own society and make them amenable to the Communist agenda, ultimately “world government.” This seems to have largely succeeded. (See the 1993 book “Double Lives” by Stephen Koch)
Communism is about divide and rule. International Women’s Day was inaugurated in 1910 in Copenhagen by “The Socialist International” (i.e. Communists) to promote “women’s rights.” As the poster on the right indicates, it was celebrated in Soviet Russia.

Here is a Manifesto for International Women’s Day published in the German “Die Kommunistin” March 2, 1921:
“To all working women! You who make demands and struggle count in the millions….In all countries where the disinherited surge forward under the sign of Communism against the exploiting and subjugating power of capitalism. On International Women’s Day, mothers filled with pain, housewives bent with worry, exhausted working women, clerical workers, teachers and small property holders flow together.” (Wiemar Republic Sourcebook, 1995) 

“AGITPROP”

Women’s Day is designed to make women feel oppressed.  For example, a page of gender facts” tells them that “women do 2/3 of the world’s work but get only 10% of the world’s income.”  Thus, western women, the most favored generation in history, get a chip on their shoulder vicariously.

Women are brainwashed to think their interests are separate from their own fathers, husbands, brothers and sons.
Thousands of events are planned around the world. For example, at the Unitarian Church in London Ont. an organization for Afghanistan women and girls “will honor and celebrate our local women with music, singing, dancing, and refreshments. All women and girls are welcome. Free event!” Sounds lesbian to me.

In San Francisco, there will be a cocktail party and movie to highlight the plight of the women of Gaza. What about the men and boys of Afghanistan and Gaza? Don’t they count? In the name of equality, these Communist dupes are practicing inequality. By breaking up families,they will leave Muslim women and girls more vulnerable than ever.

CONCLUSION
The fact that Communist-inspired agitprop is part of mainstream culture is an example of how society has been subverted. Most people are not socialist, let alone Communist.
As long as a secret Illuminati clique (Communists, Zionists, Freemasons) is allowed to control government credit, subvert nations and plot world government, society is complicit in its own destruction. We will have no one to blame but ourselves.

YWAM’s Obsession with New Age Creativity

“Whatever you do is creative; not just singing, playing or dancing, even just listening to someone teach is creative.”

That statement is put up as a status by one of my contacts, a YWAMer, on Facebook. This teaching on ‘creativity in everything was taught at one of the training schools of YWAM. I read all the comments that followed; basically they were all about how wonderful the speaker, who taught creativity, was. The speaker, Sue, commented too, stating how she loved all the “sue-isms” that were on the Facebook wall. (No glory to God, she was happy she was being praised!) Many YWAMers and otherwise are completely unaware of this. It takes the Holy Ghost to reveal the deception.

There is a tremendous obsession with creativity in today’s world. Everything needs to be “creative”; anything “old” has no place in the minds of this generation. So what’s wrong with YWAM’s infatuation with creativity? Leaving that aside for now, let’s turn to the New Age spirituality and what it has to do with creativity. The New Age beliefs are based on creativity. Everything should be creative, just like what is being taught at YWAM, a Christian mission. This organization solely moves by strategies and creativity. If it’s a local outreach, the team would sit and think of a strategy to “win” souls to Christ. (The main purpose of YWAM is establishing a Utopia-like community. It aims to build a world based on ‘christian principles’ .) During intercessory prayers, people ask God for strategies and creativity to bring “His” will about. This approach is taken out of the New Age spirituality. In an interview, Dr. Adair was asked questions on creativity; he is highly regarded by the New Age spiritualists; I can testify his answers are not far from what YWAM teaches although they tend to back up these teachings with random Bible verses. And believe me, they are excellent at convincing anyone who lacks discernment (this is one of the reasons why christian youth is the prime target). I do not say that Dr. Adair’s philosophy does not work, but who is his inspiration? If the spiritualists use his books to counsel their clients, should it not ring bells in the mind of a follower of Christ? Study the page from which the quote below is extracted. Notice the page is filled with New Age spirituality: yoga, meditation, psychic, auras, theosophy etc. And this kind of New Age teaching is rampant in Christian churches and global missions. It’s really all about self-gratification disguised as ‘doing God’s will’.

“Creative thinking always involves this sort of team work. A parting word of encouragement, the worst unconscious assumption you can make is that you are not a creative thinker. You may, of course, be right, but you will never know until you put into practice the principles I have outlined in The Art of Creative Thinking. The trouble is that we don’t know ourselves very well in some respects and we tend to be poor judges of our own creative potential. So experiment, have fun, and give yourself a few surprises.” – Dr. Adair

Where is the dependence on the Holy Spirit or His leading? Crying out to God to help a man-made agenda is a waste of time. Might as well bake some cookies. I’ve done that myself, sitting and praying with other YWAMers asking God to give us strategy to bring “His will” (when in fact it’s what the leaders have thought about). The Spirit does not need human intervention to fulfill the purposes of God; all He needs is a person, humbled before God, ready to look like a fool for the sake of his God.A typical argument would go like this: ‘if we don’t use creativity how will we attract people “to God”? Since when is attracting people to God in our hands? Regardless of the culture, God’s word is to be preached as it is. The Gospel message is not to be camouflaged to attract more people; it is the work of the Holy Spirit and strategies and creativeness is not what He wants. Christians today are so distracted by spreading their gospels in a way pleasing to the world that they have forgotten to first live God’s Gospel. The Lord isn’t a least bit concerned with our creativity and amazing strategies. So clearly, it is our fallen nature we are trying to please. Being creative does bring about our agenda, but that is always antagonist to God’s purpose. Ask yourself: if you are not creative with the Gospel, does that make you feel stressed and guilty? I’m certain the answer is a resounding ‘yes’!
The whole art of creativity is demonic (not creativity per se; it’s the obsession with it – thinking that’s the only way), and must not be entertained by genuine believers! It’s dangerous as it takes the focus off God and on to our imaginations and our flesh. I have witnessed how obsessed University of Nations (YWAM)  is with ideas, strategies and creativity. Anything that is uncreative misses the mark and needs to be improved on, just to get people’s attention. Their worship is creative, their intercession is creative, teaching has to be creative, outreaches are creative etc. Even the native Americans emphasise the important of creativity in their worship and lifestyle, so do the Hindus, the Muslims and all other religions. Who is YWAM trying to impress? All the countless number of training courses are based primarily on creativity, whether it’s Creative Leadership Development, Creative DTS, or any course. They’re all about strategies and ideas.  

 

I’m not advertising a boring life; but I am saying that a Christ-centred mind will not focus too much on strategies and creativity! Study the life of the characters who followed God in the Bible. Were their lives boring even though they did not have an infatuation with creativity and strategies?

 


Some of the demonic manifestations approved by undiscerning Christians

Many modern churches stress on speaking in tongues. This is an issue bigger than what the Apostle Paul would have imagined! This gift is turned into a mandatory aspect of being a believer; Christians judge other Christians according to their speaking in tongues and the level of it.

This is a large topic, books have been written on it. However there is one thing that needs addressing, desperately: what exactly is laughing in the Spirit? Or crying in the Spirit? Slaying in the Spirit? Making absurd noises in the Spirit? Would the Holy Spirit distract the children of God from listening and understanding His Word? Many church services are wasted because it’s members are laughing in the Spirit or are slain in the same. Would God allow such distraction when in actuality His children are supposed to be fearfully listening to His holy Word? The Lord will never allow such ungodly thing! Who alone will try to distract God’s people if not the devil himself? The church is awed by and accepts that which is demonic manifestations, claiming it to be a godly manifestation!

I once sat through a YWAM DTS class on spiritual gifts taught by a pastor. In the middle of the lecture he suddenly tells us teenagers to start speaking in tongues! There were about 15 of us, and we somehow began babbling (I feel so ashamed now!). None of us had ever spoken in tongues, and here was this pastor forcing us to speak in tongues. One student was babbling alphabets of the local language and the pastor starts laughing! As ridiculous as it sounds, he went on to laugh and expected us to laugh – his version of “laughing in the Spirit”! This was labelled as a ‘spiritual’ manifestation and was a spiritual moment. It sure was spiritual, but of the counterfeit spirit. Apparently, the previous batch which he had taught the year before had the very same experience of “laughing in the Spirit” and so he was trying to mimic it with a different group of teens.

Another drama done in the name of the Spirit is ‘slaying’. Pastors place their hands on your head and… push, push, push until you know you must fall! And then you are considered being filled with the Spirit. I confess, shamefacedly, that I have pretended to be ‘slain’ when pushed by a pastor. (I’ve made up my mind never to fall, if God wanted me to then His power is enough rather than acting along with the pastor.) However, there are slayings in the Spirit which happen without a touch (like the heretic Benny Hinn), but these can be just as demonic! It involves hypnotism at some level. We must ask God for discernment to know the real from the fake. Test the spirits, ask God to give you wisdom to escape the deception.

Speaking gibberish is out of the question. You can go ahead and speak gibberish during your personal prayer times, but please avoid doing so in public – St. Paul’s admonishing. I am not against speaking in tongues, but I am against the manipulation of the gifting. God knows the hearts of those who speak in tongues and He is far more interested in your lifestyle than your speaking in unknown languages. If you are assured that you hold the gift of tongues from God, praise God! Use it, but always bring an interpreter along if in public. But those of you who are unsure and/or pretend to use tongues,  quit trying to mock the Holy Spirit. It does not make you any more spiritual but you simply distracted from that which truly matters.
