Just how involved is God in the affairs of men? The Deist who in large number settled the new world believed that God set everything in motion and then retired back to heaven allowing man to write his own destiny. Man was in charge
of his own future and free to operate without the involvement of God. In a very short time God was taken completely out of the equation by instituting the separation of Church and State allowing the State to chart her own path unencumbered by the Church’s authority and at liberty to make laws contrary to His divine principles. Although God in the beginning was acknowledged by giving an overt appearance that He was still in charge, there was a strong current of progressivism leading the masses away from trusting in God exclusively. In time this movement championed by the progressives would influence every new system developed by modern man from German Socialism in the late 1800’s to Russian Communism at the beginning of the next century. In every case up to the modern age it’s been billed as a victory for the people over its tyrannical leaders. The only thing that has held this country from these extremes is the wealthy capitalist fighting with their last breath to hold on to power and the support it’s received from the Christian community. After many years of leading the masses to trust in their government for schooling, heath care, welfare, and other social services I am afraid the days are numbered as we slip into socialism forcing capitalism to adhere to the new doctrine.

Heaven’s Gate

Why is the Church in America dying and the rest of the world being persecuted? This one question should haunt every true Christian forcing him to his knees seeking an answer directly from our Heavenly Father. Many of the recognized church leaders in this country have been asking the same question but arriving at different results. Some say the church needs to be more open, acceptable and less judgmental to those fleeing the closet. Others have said that we need to meet the pagan where they are in music, dress, and culture norms. While others have said we simply need to speak about God more in our social contacts with no clear direction on what needs to be said. Then there are those who are attributing the demise of the Christian Church to the lack of evangelism. But that is only the first part of the question. Why are Christians being persecuted to death around the world especially in Muslim countries? Clearly to answer the second part of the question will shed light on the first.

The Great Deception – Part II

Thinking Globally-Part IIThe most dangerous threat to Christianity is secularism. You might object and say quite forcefully that Communism is the greatest threat. I would argue that it’s really not because the deception of secularism is more dangerous and has already led millions astray, whereas communism in its purest form allows no voice to the people, no freedom of expression, and no religious tolerance. Therefore, Christians in a communist country know that they are being oppressed. In 1844 Karl Marx a revolutionary German socialist philosopher declared that religion was the”opiate of the masses.” For any form of government that states unequivocally that all religion is a drug to its people that must be forcefully removed will in time become a failed state. For any philosophy of government that denies the voice of her people in time will not only lose the heart of her people but will experience a counter revolution to bring forth some form of democracy as witnessed in Russia. At the conclusion of the revolutionary coup in Russia I traveled through Moscow to the Russian state of Latvia to openly proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Even China a communist state over the years has moved toward an increased freedom of religion and a socioeconomic platform of capitalism to provide for her people. As communist China moves to the center her closest neighbor, North Korea, has remained on the far left. Continue reading The Great Deception – Part II

The Great Deception – Part I

Thinking GloballyThis will be a series of articles to help Christians to think globally. To do so will immediately recognize that there are powerful forces at work reshaping our world into a secular utopia galvanizing all nations to accept its destiny. The world population is spoon fed bits and pieces of world events by a media that keeps them blind to a larger truth. Although facts are reported, some correctly, the big picture is never realized even by their best commentators. Prophets, seers, and religious academia have also offered their interpretation of world events either drawn in part, often times out of context, from their holy books or simply from their own imagination. The civilization is deeply confused clutching to an emotional rollercoaster as its being jolted about by every crisis or dilemma facing the world. To think globally we must start by looking up and stop being captivated by each individual event. Clearly the media reports many stories but loses its focus quickly when a larger story comes along. We must move away from the tunnel vision practiced by the media and start to associate ourselves with all of history, with events in every country, with the ebb and flow of humanity and then put that all into context with God’s Word. We must learn how to think globally. Continue reading The Great Deception – Part I
