Obtaining salvation is the easiest task anyone can ever do, it is the most precious gift you can get from God, and it is easy to keep.
Some say no matter what, once you are saved you can’t lose it, and that’s not true.
This is the last chapter of James so we’ll talk about that in…
James 5 The Miseries of the Rich
1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
“Rich” – these are not Christians, for James warns them to repent and weep because of the coming misery.
Verses 1-6 are similar to Old Testament declarations of judgment against pagan nations, interspersed in books otherwise addressed to God’s people (Is 13-23; Jer 46-51; Eze 25-32; Amos 1:3-2:16; Zeph 2:14-15).
2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
“Garments” – one of the main forms of wealth in the ancient world.
3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
“Rust” – the result of hoarding. It will both testify against the judge the selfish rich.
This pertains to the wealthy of today too. With all the billionaires in the United States there should be no poverty.
4 Behold, the hire of the laborers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
“Lived in pleasure…and been wanton” – see Lk 16:19-31.
“A day of slaughter” – the day of judgment. The wicked rich are like cattle that continue to fatten themselves on the very day they are to be slaughtered, totally unaware of coming destruction.
6 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.
7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
“Be patient therefore” – refers back to vv. 1-6. Since the believers are suffering at the hands of the wicked rich, they are top look forward patiently to the Lord’s return.
8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
“The judge standeth before the door” – a reference to Christ’s second coming and the judgment associated with it.
The New Testament insistence on imminence arises from the teaching that the “last days” began with the incarnation. We have been living in the “last days” ever since.
The next great event in redemptive history is Christ’s second coming. The New Testament does not say when it will take place, hut its certainly is never questioned and believers are consistently admonished to watch for it.
10 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
See Job 1:20-22, 2:9-10, 13-15.
12 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.
“Swear not” – James’s words are very close to Jesus’ (Matt 5:33-37). James is not condemning the taking of solemn oaths, such as God’s before Abraham (Heb 6:13) or Jesus’ before Caiaphas (Matt 26:63-64) or Paul’s (Rom 1:9, 9:1) or a man’s before the Lord (Ex 22:11).
Rather, he is condemning the use of “non-binding oaths” to give the impression of truthfulness. He is applying the teaching of Jesus (cf. Matt 23:16-22).
James is teaching total honesty even in the most adverse circumstances.
13 Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any merry? Let him sing psalms.
14 Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
“Oil” – one of the best-known ancient medicines (referred to by Philo, Pliny and the physician Galen).
Some believe that James may be using the term medicinally in this passage. Others regard its use here as an aid to faith, an outward sign of the healing to be brought about by God in response to prayer made in faith.
15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
“Confess your faults one to another” –this does not mean to get on television and tell the world. See Matt 6:2-7, 16-18.
17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;
“Err from the truth” – the one who errs is either a professing Christian, whose faith is not genuine or a sinning Christ, who needs to be restored. For the former, the death spoken of in v. 20 is the “second death (cf. 1 Cor 11:30).
20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
God’s Simple Plan of Salvation
The word “IF” is much larger than most people realize!
“IF” can be the most devastating weapon against mankind!
Jesus says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again.
“Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit” (Jn 3:3-6).
God gives us the plan of how to be born again, how to be saved. The plan is simple.
First, you must realize you are a sinner.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Rom 3:23).
The greatest sin that every person has committed is that we are not as holy and righteous as Jesus Christ.
In other words, we all have doubt about God. It does not matter how much we believe in the virgin birth of Jesus, His crucifixion, and His resurrection. We have doubt about God.
Not meaning that we doubt His existence, but we wonder “IF” He will do this or “IF” He will do that.
Yet, if you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior then your “IF” becomes a mere “if” in the eyes of God.
It’s still a sin, but it becomes deactivated the minute you accept Christ.
Due to Adam and Eve’s disobedience to God (Gen 3:1-19) we live in an evil world and, unlike angles, we are sinners and condemned to death.
“For the wages [payment] of sin is death” (Rom 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God; spending eternity in Hell.
“…it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Heb 9:27).
But God loves us so much He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear our sin and die in our place.
“…He hath made Him to be sin for us…that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Cor 5:21).
Jesus had to shed His blood and die.
“For the life of the flesh is in the blood” (Lev. 17:11).
“…without shedding of blood is no remission [pardon]” (Heb 9:22).
“…God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom 5:8).
“God…commandeth all men everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30).
This repentance is a change of mind that agrees with God that one is a sinner, and also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the Cross.
All God asks of us is to believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, was crucified, and was resurrected. And that’s it.
Yet, you must believe that in your heart, not just in words. And to prove that you believe that in your heart you must confess your sins audibly to Him.
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Rom 10:9-10).
We don’t have to understand God, and actually nobody can fully. We believe that He will take care of us in all ways and we praise is holiness:
“Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? Or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matt 6:25-33).
At this time, Oprah is certainly going to hell, along with Obama, Warrren and so may others. That does not mean there is no hope. God is merciful and longsuffering. Jesus can do anything, can save any life, He saved mine. So we still have hope for Oprah, Obama, Warren, etc., etc.
Staying on this track tomorrow we’ll look at…
James 4 Friendship and Humility
1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? Come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
“Lust” – the Greek for this term is the source of our word “hedonism.”
2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
“Kill” – figurative (hyperbole) for “hate.”
3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God
Adulterers and adulteresses” – those who are spiritually unfaithful, who love the world rather than God. For spiritual adultery see, e.g., Jer 31:31.
5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
“Scripture” – the passage James had in mind is not known.
6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
4:7-10 – these verses contain ten commands, each of which is so stated in Greek that it calls for immediate action in rooting out the sinful attitude of pride.
“Resist the devil” – see Eph 6:11-18; 1 Pet 5:8-9.
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
“Cleanse your hands” – before the Old Testament priests approached God at the tabernacle, they had to wash their hands and feet at the bronze laver as a symbol of spiritual cleansing (Ex 30:17-21).
See Ps 24:4 for the imagery of “clean hands and a pure heart.”
9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
“Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep” – repent.
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
See Matt 23:12.
11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
“Speaketh evil of his brother…speaketh evil of the law” – to speak against a brother is to scorn the law of love.
12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?
13 Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
Cf. Matt 6:24-33 – this group of verses are good to remember, especially v. 33.
14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.
17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
Oprah Winfrey’s Teachings Exposed
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world (1 Jn 4:1).
Oprah is the Most Dangerous Woman in the World!
Hard to believe, but more dangerous than Hillary Clinton.
According to Oprah Winfrey’s introduction page on the internet, the Oprah Winfrey Show is the highest rated talk show in television history, seen by 15-20 million viewers each day in the United States, and in 132 other countries.
Yet Oprah never shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ with her fans. In fact, Oprah denied Jesus in front of millions of viewers. The Word of God plainly teaches that the only way to salvation is by Jesus Christ:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (Jn 14:6).
Oprah not only refuses to believe that, but preaches against it.
Oprah’s show has been the number one talk show for 12 consecutive seasons. Since its beginning in 1986 it has received 32 Emmy awards.
In 1996, Oprah began Oprah’s Book Club designed to get America reading again. Each of the books selected has become an instant bestseller averaging sales of over 1 million copies each.
In 1997, Oprah was named:
* Newsweek’s “Most Important Person” in books and media, * T.V. Guide’s “Television Performer of the Year, * The People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Television Performer,” and * In 1996, Time Magazine recognized Oprah as one of America’s “Twenty-five Most Influential People.”
This is why Oprah is so dangerous… she has massive influence over millions of people and is tragically using it to lead them straight into the fires of Hell.
The books she promotes are like “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne, one of the many New Age Movement books.
Oprah Teaches and promotes New Age Heresy
Tragically, America is obsessed with celebrity idol worship and that idol will be the devil himself.
Oprah is extremely dangerous because she is leading millions of people (especially women) into the New Age movement and away from Jesus Christ. Oprah is a wolf in sheep’s clothing who’s leading multitudes into Hell.
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves” (Matt 7:15)
Unsaved people who would never listen to a preacher or the Bible are listening to Oprah! She has power over millions of people, yet Oprah propagates a demonic message of spiritism and New Age doctrines.
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” (1t Tim 4:1).
“New Age” is nothing new, it is simply a modern conglomerate of all sorts of pagan and Eastern religions. All straight from Hell.
New Age is a religious movement that is centered in self – all you need is within – with no defined order of sin, repentance or salvation! You become your own god! The people worship the god of forces and promote The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Oprah is worth over 2 billion dollars. If she is such a loving person why does she only donate around a million a year?
If she is so wonderful why is she letting her money sit in the bank instead of helping the poor and starving?
Where does she get all of her money? From the poor and starving.
The Pagan Gospel of the New Age
The gospel according to the New Age Movement is an expansive idea centered around the birth of a new world “consciousness.”
As a religion of monism (all is one), New Agers hope to accomplish what the builders of the Tower of Babel failed to do—unify the masses of the world under a single religious umbrella, and, at the macro level, harmonically converge the world’s energies with the power of Gaia.
To promote such goals, New Agers claim that God is pantheistic (God is all and all is God) and that humans are divine members of the whole “that God is.”
According to New Ageism, Jesus came to reveal this pantheistic nature of God and to teach humanity the gospel of Self-Realization.
After illustrating the divine principle of “God within us all,” Jesus ascended to a place of distinction to live among the Masters of the Spiritual Hierarchy—Buddha and Krishna.
Jesus promised that the essence of God would be revealed from time to time, and thus New Agers look for the imminent appearing of a World Teacher who will, as Jesus did, illustrate the divine human potential.
In this way, New Age theology prepares the world for the coming of the False Prophet and the Antichrist. These are the false teachings of the New Age Movement.
Oprah says, “I Surrender All,” but she surrenders nothing, she doesn’t even share much.
It’s been in the news recently that Oprah Winfrey was moved when she heard invited guest, Faith Hill, singing the Gospel song “I Surrender All,” during a practice rehearsal.
The video shows an audience member moved to tears and Faith Hill emotionally moved by Oprah’s story. Oprah tells how she desperately wanted a part in a 1985 Steven Spielberg movie, The Color Purple.”
Oprah says she went to a fat-farm to try to lose some extra pounds. While there, she said she couldn’t bare the pressure anymore and just started praying, singing, and crying. She said she sang “I Surrender All,” while giving up her obsession to be in the movie part. Sadly,
Oprah never makes any mention of the name which is above every other name, the name of JESUS!
And she obviously has not surrendered any of that fat she went lose.
The universe is not interested in your struggles and your pain and your sorrow…
The Word of God teaches that He is very much interested in our struggles and pain and sorrow.
“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Pet 5:7).
“Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be over past” (Ps 57:1).
The Bible teaches that when we are struggling or down that we are to go to the Lord Jesus Christ for refuge… under the shadow of the Almighty:
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty” (Ps 91:1).
Oprah never mentions the Bible in any of her teachings. The reason is obvious, she is an unsaved heretic.
My heart is open to find the flow, the flow, the flow, the flow that is my life.
This is Devilish doctrine. New Age doctrines/practices (such as Kundalini Yoga) teach that there are seven “Chakras” (or spiritual doorways) within the body through which energy flows.
They teach that each planet has a presiding god (demon) over it. They believe that these channels of energy can be tapped into through meditation, yoga, acupuncture, etc. Holistic medicine is also based upon this concept known as Yin and Yang.
When Oprah speaks of the “flow,” she is talking about demonic sources of spiritual energy, not the Holy Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit of God always works through the Word of God.
John declares that Jesus Christ is the Living Word of God:
“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ” (Jn 1:1-3).
Also see where Jesus is called the “Word of God.”
“And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God” (Rev 19:13).
You cannot separate Jesus Christ from the Spirit of God, for He is the Spirit of God.
“But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his” (Rom 8:9).
Oprah does not have God’s Spirit, but a demonic spirit.
We are clearly taught in try (or test) the spirits to see if they are of God or not,
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world” (1 Jn 4:1).
How can I be used to serve the greater calling that is my life? That is the question. I surrender to that.
Oprah tells on herself here by saying that she was only surrendering to “The greater calling that is my life.” Since when is one’s personal life the “greater calling”? Jesus Christ is the great calling, nothing else.
Again, let’s test Oprah teachings to the Word of God.
“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created” (Rev 4:11).
God created mankind to please Him…period!
“…without faith it is impossible to please him…” (Heb 11:6).
Faith is our obedience and trust upon Jesus Christ, the Living Word… and the Bible, God’s Written Word. There is no other way to please God.
Oprah’s words sound very selfish and self-centered, which is exactly what New Age is all about. Oprah is going to burn in Hell if she doesn’t repent and turn to Jesus Christ in faith.
Oprah and all of her followers do not know God and when Jesus returns the following will be the result:
“In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Chris” (2 Thess 1:8).
These Christian denominations, the Catholics for example, ARE NOT true believers of Jesus Christ and they have no salvation, as they would like to think.
I had a brother that was a homosexual, he died of AIDS and went blind. It was a long, slow, horrible death. About ten years prior to his dying he accepted Jesus Christ and stopped the wicked act.
I know he’ll go to heaven because God no longer saw him as a reprobate, but one of His children.
I’m not a homosexual, but, in my opinion, I was much worse. My brother had been generous and kind to people, while I on the other had disrespected people and treated them like trash. I used them, I hurt them and laughed about it.
In 1983, I realized that Jesus Christ is real and nobody to cross, but did I care? Sure I cared, but not enough to change my ways. I liked being mean and manipulating people. I didn’t like being poor so I took what I could from whomever.
In 2007, I accepted Jesus Christ into my heart and He gave me a new one. Sometimes I look back at my past and I am flabbergasted at the horrid person I had once been.
I’m still poor, and I still have boring days, frustrating days, but I have not had one sad day since July 29, 2007. No hardship matters to me because I have Jesus Christ in heart and soul and someday I will meet Him in person and live with him for eternity.
The type of person I had been or a murderer or a homosexual or whatever are all the same to God, He does not see them different. They are all reprobates.
No evil act we do is more severe than any other, unless that act is in defiance of Jesus Christ. Those that stand against Jesus will pay a much heavier price then those that just ignore the laws of God:
“And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more” (Lk 12:47-48).
So tomorrow we will look at one of the most, if not the most, evil person on earth. The one possibly doing more damage to God’s children then even the Catholics is…
James 3 True Faith Evidenced by Words
1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
“Perfect man” – since the tongue is so difficult to control, anyone who could control it perfectly could control himself in all other areas of life as well.
3 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
“World of iniquity” – like the world in its fallenness.
“Set on fire of hell” – a figurative way of saying that the source of the tongue’s evil is the devil.
7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
“Similitude of God: – since man has been made like God (Gen 1:26-27), to curse man is like cursing God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? Either a vine, figs? So can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
These elements of a true teacher are expressed by three words in this verse: “knowledge,” “meekness,” and “shew.”
“Shew out of a good conversation” – show by his good conduct in life. We cannot teach well what we cannot practice in our own life.
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
“Confusion” – “God is not the author of confusion but of peace” (1 Cor 14:33).
17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
Homosexuality vs. God’s Holiness
The Result of Rebellion Against God is Damnation.
Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire (Jude 1:7).
Today Jesus’ Church is faced with a crisis it never had to face before in its 2000 year history.
The crisis comes from homosexuality being presented as acceptable behavior by factions within the Church.
Especially the Catholic priests raping their altar boys.
Rev Charles Engelhardt and Bernard Shero sexually assault a 10 year old boy.
Church officials allowed Porter to supervise altar boys in a New Bedford church – despite the allegations that the priest abused children – and that he raped at least one of the altar boys.
The Rev. James Porter abused some 100 young boys and girls at parishes in North Attleborough, New Bedford and Fall River in the 1960s. Was sentenced to 18 to 20 years in prison in 1993 for sexually abusing 28 children in the Fall River Diocese.
Certain denominations such as the Episcopalian are promoting homosexual pastors and marriage.
Bold homosexual ministers, actually living with a partner, stand in the pulpit promoting this lifestyle.
On June 15, 2008, two Anglican Church, male priests “married” in an official church wedding ceremony.
On June 26, 2003, homosexuality was defined by the Supreme Court of the United States as a Constitutional right of privacy.
This is ironic because this the highest court of the land, and these judges broke the law:
“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them” (Lev 20:13).
There is no judge above God and those that participate or allow anything against God will burn in hell for eternity:
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Rev 21:8).
This has opened the flood gates to advance the homosexual agenda. Soon after this, starting in San Francisco and then spreading to many other states, homosexuals were “married” in civil ceremonies.
In November 2003, the Supreme Court of Massachusetts demanded that the state legislature enact homosexual marriage legislation.
On May 17, 2004, homosexual marriage became legal in this state.
On May 15, 2008, the California State Supreme Court ruled that homosexuals were entitled to marry.
On June 15, 2008, homosexuals began to legally marry. The floods gates are now wide open throughout America to advance the homosexual agenda.
Pastors within mainline denominations are “marrying” homosexuals. These denominations seem to lack the resolve to stand up against this trend.
The Episcopalian Church among others is leading the way in promoting homosexuality.
On August 6, 2003, the Episcopalian Church voted to install Gene Robinson as bishop of New Hampshire . Robinson is a man who divorced his wife with whom he had two children and now lives in an open homosexual relationship.
He remained a minister and then was voted a bishop. This is only one of many examples of how denominations are either passively or outright promoting homosexuality by not disciplining ministers who are advancing the homosexual agenda.
The “church” has become a leader of the homosexual agenda.
There are now movements both within civil government and religious circles to sanction homosexual marriages. This never happened before in our history. This is unchartered waters for America .
It is not unchartered waters according to the Bible because it states what happens to a nation that promotes sodomy.
Those who stand against this act are now being branded as narrow minded religious bigots who are against diversity. There is now a social tidal wave going on to promote, encourage and protect the homosexual act.
Leading the way in this movement are both politicians and clergy who claim to believe the Bible.
In the very first chapter of the Bible, God ordains the union of a man and woman and the family unit. He ordained the marriage between a man and a woman.
This was the plan of God from the very beginning: one man and one woman and a family.
This plan of God has not changed and no law of man including the Supreme Court of the United States can alter God’s family unit.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply…” (Gen 1:26-28).
“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” (Gens 2:24).
In the New Testament, the Bible states that marriage is honorable in all things and that those who defile it by adultery and whoremongering will come under the direct judgment of God.
The Greek word translated whoremongering is the same word translated fornication. This word is very important in defining what homosexuality is and will be developed shortly.
Remember, marriage as defined by the Bible is a union between one man and one woman. You must always keep in mind how God defines marriage: one man and one woman.
“Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge” (Heb 13:4).
Can Homosexuals Go To Heaven?
The Scriptures indicate that when a person engages in homosexuality it is an indication they are under God’s judgment. The judgment is described as, “God gave them up.”
This happens when a person is in deep rebellion against God. This rebellion manifests itself in homosexuality which would then cause God to give them over to this act. They can be sealed into homosexuality.
A homosexual can repent and trust Jesus Christ as Savior just like any other sinner; however, those that are in deep rebellion against God and not just caught in the power of this sin are given over to it.
There is a huge difference between being under the power of sin and being given over to it in judgment by God. A homosexual that is not a reprobate is one that knows the act is wrong and is under condemnation.
In other words, being a homosexual – being attracted to the same sex – is not a sin, but participating in the homosexual act is. It defies God and those that choose to enjoy the sexual act over God He will “give them up,” i.e., sentence them to Hell for eternity.
Supporting the homosexual agenda shows a deep rebellion against God and classifies that person as a reprobate. To God there is no difference between an active homosexual and a heterosexual who condones this act.
They both are linked to the reprobate mind. This means the American society is loaded with reprobates. They are clergy, politicians, judges and college professors. They are news analysts and Hollywood stars.
“Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them” (Rom 1:32).
The Greek word translated pleasure means: think well of in common, i.e. assent to, feel gratified with.
God Gave Them Over To A Reprobate Mind
The Bible devotes an entire chapter to the process of becoming a reprobate. The book of Romans, the first chapter gives the process by which a person develops a reprobate mind. The first step is the failure to acknowledge God and being unthankful:
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened” (Rom 1:21).
The devil himself is a homosexual. He is everything that is against God and you can’t hang with God and Satan, it’s like water and oil.
“Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils” (1 Cor 10:21).
Homosexuality-Fornication = Sodom and Gomorrah
The Book of Jude ties together homosexuality with the word fornication. The homosexuality of Sodom and Gomorrah was identified as fornication. The Bible warns that the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was an example to those who would practice this same fornication.
“Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire” (Jude 7).
The Greek word for fornication is ekporneuo, and it means to be utterly unchaste. It is the Greek word from which English derives the word pornography.
The Bible then defines fornication as any sexual activity outside of marriage. It is an inclusive term. Remember, marriage is between one man and one woman.
The definition of fornication would then include: heterosexual relations before marriage, homosexual relations at any time, incest, bestiality, prostitution and pornography.
All sex outside of marriage is considered fornication by God.
God is the true Law of the Land!
Homosexuality and the Constitution
How does homosexuality deserve a promotion as a constitutional right?
Why isn’t prostitution or bestiality or adultery or drunkenness or drugs usage a constitutional right?
God does not and never did condone any of them.
In our day, homosexuality has been plucked from the list of iniquity as being a vile affection. It now has been decreed by many factions of civil government as being a right.
In many Christian denominations, it has been declared a loving relationship that is acceptable and blessed by God. God never changed His mind about fornication!
Due to the overpopulation of China their government does not allow people to have more than one child.
Our government could make a law that only the wealthy can have babies and would probably force the poor to take the injection of the “hCG and Anti-hCG Antibodies” we talked about yesterday.
Yet, if they did that Planned Parenthood would lose money. They’ll probably just tax parents per child, and if they are poor the tax will be higher.
It is more than obvious that Bill and Melinda Gates and Planned Parenthood are against God.
The below article points that out,
Planned Parenthood endorses the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education, which recommends teaching five year olds about masturbation, and nine year olds about homosexuality and the benefits of watching porn.
And many elementary schools across the country are doing just that. So tomorrow we’re going to look at…
James 2 True Faith Impartial
1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
“Faith…with respect of persons” – God doesn’t show favoritism, nor should we.
God did have His favorites, like Abraham and Moses and David. Yet, even though they were His favorites (He called them friends), He didn’t love them anymore than anyone else.
Just like many parents that have numerous kids, they may enjoy one of them more than the others, but they don’t love him or her any more than the others.
2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
2:5-13 – James gives three arguments against showing favoritism to the rich:
1. The rich persecute the poor – the believers. 2. Favoritism violates the royal law of love and thus is sin. 3. Favoritism will be judged.
6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself, ye do well:
“Royal law” – the law of love (Lev 19:18) is called “royal” because it is the supreme law that is the source of all other laws governing human relationships. It is the summation of all such laws (Matt 2:36-40; Rom 13:8-10).
We are taught that the United States Constitution is the Law of the Land, but it’s not, God’s law is and God’s law does not allow abortion and homosexuality.
9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
“Guilty of all” – the law is the expression of the character and will of God; therefore to violate one part of the law is to violate God’s will and thus His whole law.
11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.
12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
“Judged” – this judgment is not for determining eternal destiny, for James is speaking to believers whose destiny is already determined (unless they are found guilty of Heb 6:4-6, 10:26-27). Rather it is for giving rewards to believers.
13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
“Mercy rejoiceth against judgment” – if man is merciful, God will be merciful on the day of judgment.
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? Can faith save him?
2:14-26 – in vv. 14-20, 24, 26 “faith” is not used in the sense of genuing faith. Rather, it is demonic, useless and dead. It is a mere intellectual acceptance of certain truths without trust in Christ as Savior.
James is also not saying that a person is saved by works and not by genuine faith. Rather, he is saying, to useMartin Luther’swords (not Martin Luther King) words, that a man is justified (declared righteous before God) by faith alone, but not by a faith that is alone.
Genuine faith will produce good deeds, but only faith in Christ saves.
Anyone that believes that Jesus was born of a virgin, was crucified, resurrected and is our Savior is saved, IF they worship Jesus and only Jesus.
Rick Warren and Billy Graham had once been saved, but by their “works” they may have lost it, I’m not God so I don’t know, but see Heb 6:4-6; 10:26-27.
Oprah, Obama, Gates, and Buffet. are not saved, and never were.
15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
2:15-16 – this illustration of false faith is parallel to the illustration of false love found in 1 Jn 3:17. The latter passage calls for love in action; this one calls for faith in action.
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
“Thou hast faith, and I have works” – the false claim is that there are “faith” Christians and “works” Christians, i.e., that faith and deeds can e4dist independently of each other.
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
“There is one God” – a declaration of monotheism that reflects the well-known Jewish creed called in Hebrew the Shema, meaning “Hear” (Deut 6:4; Mk 12:29).
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
“Faith without works is dead” –if you have true faith in Jesus Christ, but preach a different gospel then the works that you do violate God and therefore your faith is invalid.
Like Rick Warren is doing, trying to start Chrislam, saying that the Muslims and the Christians believe in the same God.
21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
“Justified by works” –if Abraham would not have obeyed God’s order to sacrifice Isaac then he would be without “works.”
22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
“He was called a Friend” –Abraham was one of God’s favorites, but He didn’t love him anymore than us.
24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
“Rahab the harlot” –Rahab’s occupation was against God, but her saving the spies proved her faith, which saved her (Heb 11:31).
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Watch this disturbing video which shows that racism still plays a role in the abortion industry today…
Several times, there were difficulties with abortions while I worked there, where they had to call the hospital to come pick the woman up. … A lot of the cases we had were from excessive bleeding or reactions to the sedation.
One was particularly serious:
One girl almost bled out. She was passing clots, [and] her blood pressure was dropping.
The clinic workers were instructed not to mention the word “abortion” when they called for an ambulance.
When we had to call 911 for an ambulance, we were told never to say the word “abortion” because they don’t want that broadcast. They knew that the calls were recorded, and could be made public.
They were trying to hide their abortion complications from pro-lifers in this manner, because pro-lifers often make use of 911 calls in order to document cases of malpractice in the abortion industry.A former Planned Parenthood worker has opened up to a diocesan newspaper in a gripping tell-all interview, saying she was shocked at the horrors she witnessed during the two years she worked in Indiana’s largest abortion facility.
Marianne Anderson is a nurse who assisted Planned Parenthood abortionists by partially sedating women who paid extra for that luxury. She told The Criterion newspaper that she saw many women pressured into abortions they did not want, including minor girls.
You can read the complete interview with Anderson here.
One young girl came in with her mom, Anderson told the paper. She was about 16. Her mom had made the appointment. That’s not supposed to be how it works. It’s supposed to only be the patient who makes the appointment.
I checked her in, and she thought she was there for a prenatal checkup. The mom was pushing it. She blindsided her own daughter.
Another time, said Anderson,
This guy brought in a Korean girl. I had no doubt in my mind this girl was a sex slave. This guy would not leave her side. They could barely communicate. He wanted to make all the arrangements.
During the ultrasound, she told one of the nurses that there were lots of girls in the house, and that the man hits them. She never came back for the abortion. I always wondered what happened to her.
One of my co-workers said, ‘You’re better off to just let it go.’”
When women cried during the abortion procedure, Anderson said, abortionist Michael King would shame them. “These girls would start crying on the table, and Dr. King would say, ‘Now you chose to be here. Sit still. I don’t have time for this.”
One doctor, when he was in the POC [products of conception] room, would talk to the aborted baby while looking for all the parts. “Come on, little arm, I know you’re here! Now you stop hiding from me!”
It just made me sick to my stomach, Anderson said. The sound the suction machine made when it turned on still haunts me.
Anderson told The Criterion she started working at the facility because she believed that as long as women were having abortions, they should be safe about it.
But Anderson quickly abandoned her illusions of safety once she began work at Planned Parenthood.
I started feeling uneasy working there when people came from national in New York City to teach us the conscious sedation process, Anderson told the paper.
It was disgusting. These two ladies had this chant they would do: “Abortion all the time!” I thought, “I’ve got to get out of here.” That was about six to eight months after I started.
Anderson said the overall experience of working for Planned Parenthood was “absolutely miserable.”
It was a money-grubbing, evil, very sad, sad place to work,” she said. I was always getting in trouble for talking too long to the girls, asking if they were sure they wanted to do this.
You have to have so many [abortions] a month to stay open, Anderson said.
In our meetings they’d tell us, “If abortions are down, you could get sent home early and not get as many hours.”
Anderson finally escaped her job at Planned Parenthood with assistance from Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director who runs the charity And Then There Were None, which is dedicated to helping abortion clinic workers leave the industry.
After reading Johnson’s book Unplanned, Anderson reached out to Johnson via social media and told her she wanted to get out.
Johnson put her in touch with Eileen Hartman, a local pro-life leader who immediately jumped into action, helping Anderson polish her resume and setting up job interviews with local hospitals and doctors.
Anderson was fired by Planned Parenthood in July 2012, but was immediately hired by Community North Hospital, where she is now a nurse.
What’s so Bad About Planned Parenthood?
For starters, consider these reasons:
1. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the United States.
While many Planned Parenthood clinics offer services that may be beneficial to a community (breast exams or pregnancy and STD testing) the problem is that they don’t stop there.
Planned Parenthood claim to be in favor of reducing the number of abortions, for every one mother they refer to an adoption agency, they abort 138 babies!
One must not forget that Planned Parenthood is a business, and they earn over 100 million dollars each year by performing abortions.
Those who work for Planned Parenthood would find it interesting that their founder, Margaret Sanger, once wrote,[
While there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion as justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization.
2. Planned Parenthood spreads the myth of safe sex.
Planned Parenthood pretends to give “medically accurate” information, yet they lobbied against the passing of Public Law 106-354.
This “Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Act” required that educational material regarding STDs like HPV shall “contain medically accurate information regarding the effectiveness or lack of effectiveness of condoms in preventing the STD the materials are designed to address.” Planned Parenthood tried to block the law from being passed because it undermined consumers’ faith in the condom.
In the words of Senator Tom Coburn,
Planned Parenthood has been part of the cover-up of one of the greatest threats ever posed to women’s health. They don’t want to talk about HPV because the only real protection against it is a lifestyle of abstinence before marriage and fidelity within marriage.
Planned Parenthood seems to find that politically unacceptable and would rather promote a strategy of denial and disinformation.
Cervical cancer caused by HPV has killed more women than AIDS in America, but Planned Parenthood refuses to put warning labels for HPV on their condoms.
However, they do print on condom labels the phone number for the local Planned Parenthood clinic. That way, when condoms fail, women can come back for an abortion, STD testing, or more birth control.
However, such women should know that Planned Parenthood distributes some of the most defective condoms on the market. In its February 2005 edition, Consumer Reports surveyed twenty-three different types of condoms to measure their effectiveness.
In last place were condoms made by Planned Parenthood, with a failure rate of fifteen percent! One of their brands received the equivalent grade of an “F” in the two standards measured: reliability and strength. So much for safe sex.
3. Planned Parenthood claims to offer “comprehensive” sex education, while withholding vital health information from teens.
When discussing birth control, Planned Parenthood downplays the side effects of each method.
For example, when discussing the birth control patch, they say, “Is the patch safe? Yes. Despite alarming stories from some news outlets, the patch has been shown to be very safe.”
What they don’t mention is that 23 deaths have been attributed to the patch, and thousands of women are suing the makers of the device.
Planned Parenthood also reassures young women that the birth control pill is safe, without mentioning that according to the Mayo Clinic, 21 of 23 studies of women who took the pill prior to having their first child showed an increased risk of breast cancer.
4. Planned Parenthood only pays lip-service to abstinence.
Even though teens who practice abstinence have substantially happier lives, Planned Parenthood won’t seriously advocate such a lifestyle because it contradicts their outdated and contorted idea of sexual “liberation.”
Why should a teen be abstinent, according to Planned Parenthood?
Some people may choose to be sexually abstinent in certain circumstances. A person who just broke up with someone might abstain from dating and sex play because being close to another person might not feel right, yet.
Elsewhere, they quote a teen as saying he’s abstinent because “The guilt I would feel would take the fun out of it.” In the end, they just recommend,
Only you can ultimately decide what is right for you and your body. Trust the messages that your mind and body give you.
In other words,
Don’t trust God, the Church, your parents, or anyone who loves you and may want what’s best for you. Trust the most reliable source for wise decision making… your hormones. And we’ll see you at Planned Parenthood soon!
It’s also worthwhile to note that Planned Parenthood makes money if teens have sex. If people saved sex for marriage, Planned Parenthood would go out of business.
Chastity means no birth control sales, no STD testing, no abortions… no business.
Planned Parenthood’s message of abstinence is so weak that Lifestyles condoms funded a grant for Planned Parenthood to make a curriculum for teaching teens about sex!
5. Planned Parenthood does not offer age-appropriate sexed information.
Planned Parenthood endorses the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education, which recommends teaching five year olds about masturbation, and nine year olds about homosexuality and the benefits of watching porn.
Again, Planned Parenthood has drifted a long way from the attitudes of their founder, who wrote,
In the boy or girl past puberty, we find one of the most dangerous forms of masturbation, i.e., mental masturbation, which consists of forming mental pictures, or thinking obscene or voluptuous pictures.
This form is considered especially harmful to the brain, for the habit becomes so fixed that it is almost impossible to free the thoughts from lustful pictures… Perhaps the greatest physical danger to the chronic masturbator is the inability to perform the sexual act naturally….
The individual promises himself over and over again after such exercises to overcome the habit, but his will power gradually becomes destroyed and the impulse continues.
He knows and intuitively feels such practice degrades him and destroys his character; he feels he is losing control of himself, and also realizes that his health, especially his nervous system, is being undermined.
In my personal experience as a trained nurse while attending persons afflicted with various and often revolting diseases, no matter what their ailments, I never found any one so repulsive as the chronic masturbator.
It would not be difficult to fill page upon page of heart-rending confessions made by young girls, whose lives were blighted by this pernicious habit, always begun so innocently.
She went on to refer to masturbation as a “perversion” of the sexual impulse.
If there is any question as to why Planned Parenthood is actively promoting President Obama, the answer is simply this:
President Obama has done more for Planned Parenthood and their pro-abortion agenda in his nearly 4 years in office than almost anyone.
The abortion giant’s president, Cecile Richards, said of Obama, “I’ve been working with this administration for the last three years on getting women better health care access [i.e. abortion, abortion funding, and mandated abortion-pill coverage] in a whole host of ways.”
Time and time again, President Obama has not only stood with Planned Parenthood, he has done everything within his power to advance their cause.
As he once famously stated of abortion, “On this fundamental issue,
I will not yield and Planned Parenthood will not yield.”
Time and time again, President Obama has come to the aid of the largest abortion provider in America.6. Planned Parenthood lies to women.
Planned Parenthood won’t offer pregnant women ultrasounds or even attempt to adequately inform them about the development of the baby.
One young couple I know went to get an abortion when their unborn baby had brain waves, a heartbeat, toes, and fingers, and the clinic simply said that they would just be removing tissue that was “like a peanut.”
Planned Parenthood reassured the couple that there wouldn’t be any serious emotional consequences.
However, the teenage father was bawling over the lost baby months later.
Especially in cases of rape and incest, Planned Parenthood acts like abortion is a blessing. On the contrary, consider this woman’s testimony:
The trauma of the rape and abuse were only intensified by the abortion. The guilt of knowing my baby is dead is something I will have to live with for the rest of my life.
At Planned Parenthood, they pretend like regrets don’t exist.
7. Planned Parenthood protects the identity of sex offenders.
Because states have certain age restrictions on abortion, Planned Parenthood sometimes conceals the age of young girls in order to perform the operations. By doing so, they cover up cases of rape, statutory rape, and incest.
For example, in 2004, a sixteen year old girl received an abortion from Planned Parenthood in Ohio. She told them the pregnancy was the result of sexual abuse she had suffered from her father, which had been happening for four years. Because of their silence, she was sexually abused for 18 more months.
However, in May of 2007, she filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood, saying that they violated Ohio law by refusing to report the crime in 2004. Recorded phone calls provide evidence that Planned Parenthood has violated such laws hundreds of times.
8. Planned Parenthood mocks the Christian faith.
On their holiday greeting cards, Planned Parenthood used the slogan, “Choice on Earth” in substitution for the angel’s greeting “Peace on earth” at the arrival of Christ.
Planned Parenthood also extols the “sacredness of choice,” and argues that the Bible indicates “that Jesus was not against women having a choice in continuing a pregnancy.”
To Planned Parenthood, dismembering a baby is sacred and Jesus was pro-abortion. This continues the thought of Margaret Sanger, the woman who founded Planned Parenthood. In her book, Woman and the New Race, she wrote,
The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.
It is said that money is power, but is it? Yes it is, but not everyone that has the money has the power. For example, the Gates’s have no power, they are catered to, blinded and used. Used to the point that they too became evil.
Bill Gates was not an evil person when he first came up with Microsoft, he was just trying to make a living and survive. Now, he’s in the devil’s pocket.
Oprah’s a different story, she has wealth and power, but she has no sense. When Obama was president he didn’t have wealth, power or sense – he’s was nothing but a pawn.
Even though the Gates’s are against God (Bill an atheist and Melinda a Catholic), I truly do not believe that they expected their Foundation to become what it is becoming, and I don’t think they even see that today.
They’re not evil like Oprah and Rick Warren, they are “stupid evil.” If we’re lucky they will read my post tomorrow because we will look at…
James 1 Patience in Temptation
1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
Trust God to help you out – 1 Cor 10:13.
3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
See Heb 12:1-12.
4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
Trust on the Lord and be patient – Josh 1:5-6; Ps27:14.
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
“Wisdom” – enables one to face trials with “joy”. Wisdom is not just acquired information but practical insight with spiritual implications.
You may not even realize that the knowledge came from God, not right away at least. You will realize later it came from Him, along with the joy you are filled with.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
Great description of the United States Congress.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
They will get the same that those of Matt 5:2 get, which is nothing from God, only from man.
8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
And here we have the White House.
9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
“Crown of life” – this crown of life could refer either to eternal life itself or to God’s eternal reward or glory for those who overcome he severe trials of life, such as a physical handicap, a degrading status or role in life, or any number of agonies of life (see 2 Tim 4:8; 1 Pet 5:4; Rev 2:10).
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
“God cannot be tempted” – because God in His very nature is holy, there is nothing in Him for sin to appeal to.
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
The three stages – lust, sin, death – are seen in the temptation of Eve (Gen 3:6-22) and David (2 Sam 11:2-17).
16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
“Father of lights” – God is the Creator of the heavenly bodies, which give light to the earth, but unlike them, He does not change.
18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firs fruits of his creatures.
“First fruits” – just as the first sheaf of the harvest was an indication that the whole harvest would eventually follow, so the early Christian were an indication that a great number of people would eventually be born again.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
We obviously won’t be seeing people like Hugh Hefner, Larry Flynt and the Catholic priests in heaven.
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
“Perfect law” – the moral and ethical teaching of Christianity, which is based on the Old Testament moral law, as embodied in the ten commandments (see Ps 19:7), but brought to completion (perfection) by Jesus Christ.
“Liberty” – in contrast to the sinner, who is a slave to sin (Jn 8:34), obeying the moral law gives the Christian the joyous freedom to be what he was created.
26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
“Religious” – refers to the outward acts of religion: e.g., giving to the needy, fasting and public acts of praying and worshiping.
27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
“Pure religion” – James identifies true religion as involving two actions (service and separation) which relate to two basic attributes of God (love and holiness).
A Grand Illusion: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
The Gates from Hell Foundation Leads to The One World Order Leads to The Mark of the Beast and Then I Get to Go Home! Where Will You Go?
Many people have been misled to believe that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is good; but it is evil to the core, with a sinister New World Order agenda.
According to their organization’s 2002 annual report, Bill and Melinda Gates donated $2,500,000 to Planned Parenthood (or should I say, “Herodhood”),we’ll look at this tomorrow.
In 2005 alone, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gave a $3 million grant to the International Planned Parenthood Federation.
Yet, hypocritically, listen to what Bill and Melinda Gates tell people on their website…
Bill and Melinda Gates believe every life has equal value. In 2000, they created the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help reduce inequities in the United States and around the world.
Reduce inequities? How, by murdering babies? How can Mr. and Mrs. Gates profess to believe that every life has equal value, while funding tens-of-millions to promote Godless abortion and sterilization?
Equality for who? Certainly not the children? The following chart shows the utter hypocrisy of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and of many such pro-death organizations today that are propagating the false threat of AIDS.
The most hideous killer today is not AIDS, violent crime, or disease – it’s abortion.
Here are two videos about abortion.
Planned Parenthood makes Hitler’s Nazi war killing machine look like child’s play.
Whereas Hitler today is still demonized as Satan incarnate by the world, Planned Parenthood murders innocent people legally, and with hardly any opposition to their gruesome, torturous business.
Abortion is the woeful American holocaust! Do you realize that Americans have willingly murdered more of its own citizens than every American soldier ever killed in war?
Bill Gates’ Planned-Parenthood President Dad Inspired Pro-Abort Funding
Warren Buffet has also committed $30,000,000,000 (BILLION!) of his own accumulated wealth to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Clearly, the devil is at work here folks. The agenda is population elimination.
It is no secret that the UNFPA has been lacing vaccinations with sterilization drugs for many years. One has to start asking questions when only young Philippine women are receiving tetanus vaccinations.
Before we say any more about the “Gates” from Hell, I want to show you what the United States is looking forward to. Yeah, it’s not hear yet, but it’s coming because it’s a part of Planned Parenthood.
Are New Vaccines Laced with Birth-Control Drugs?By James A. Miller
During the early 1990s, the World Health Organization (WHO) had been overseeing massive vaccination campaigns against tetanus in a number of countries, among them Nicaragua, Mexico, and the Philippines.
In October 1994, HLI received a communication from its Mexican affiliate, the Comite’ Pro Vida de Mexico, regarding that country’s anti-tetanus campaign.
Suspicious of the campaign protocols, the Comite’ obtained several vials of the vaccine and had them analyzed by chemists.
Some of the vials were found to contain human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), a naturally occurring hormone essential for maintaining a pregnancy.
hCG and Anti-hCG Antibodies
In nature the hCG hormone alerts the woman’s body that she is pregnant and causes the release of other hormones to prepare the uterine lining for the implantation of the fertilized egg.
The rapid rise in hCG levels after conception makes it an excellent marker for confirmation of pregnancy: when a woman takes a pregnancy test she is not tested for the pregnancy itself, but for the elevated presence of hCG.
However, when introduced into the body coupled with a tetanus toxoid carrier, antibodies will be formed not only against tetanus but also against hCG.
In this case the body fails to recognize hCG as a friend and will produce anti-hCG antibodies. The antibodies will attack subsequent pregnancies by killing the hCG which naturally sustains a pregnancy; when a woman has sufficient anti-hCG antibodies in her system, she is rendered incapable of maintaining a pregnancy.
Human Life International (HLI) reported the sketchy facts regarding the Mexican tetanus vaccines to its World Council members and affiliates in more than 60 countries.
Soon additional reports of vaccines laced with hCG hormones began to drift in from the Philippines, where more than 3.4 million women were recently vaccinated.
Similar reports came from Nicaragua, which had conducted its own vaccination campaign in 1993.
The Anti-Fertility Gang
Allied with the WHO in the development of an anti-fertility vaccine (AFV) using hCG with tetanus and other carriers have been:
UNFPA, The UN Development Program (UNDP), The World Bank, The Population Council, The Rockefeller Foundation, The All India Institute of Medical Sciences, and A number of universities, including Uppsala, Helsinki, and Ohio State.
The U.S. National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (part of NIH) was the supplier of the hCG hormone in some of the AFV experiments.
The WHO began its “Special Program” in human reproduction in 1972, and by 1993 had spent more than $356 million on “reproductive health” research.
Over $90 million of this Program’s funds were contributed by Sweden; Great Britain donated more than $52 million, while Norway, Denmark and Germany kicked in for $41 million, $27 million, and $12 million, respectively.
The U.S., thanks to the cut-off of such funding during the Reagan-Bush administrations, has contributed “only” $5.7 million, including a new payment in 1993 by the Clinton administration of $2.5 million.
Other major contributors to the WHO Program include:
UNFPA, $61 million; The World Bank, $15.5 million; The Rockefeller Foundation, $2.5 million; The Ford Foundation, over $1 million; and The IDRC (International Research and Development Center of Canada), $716.5 thousand.
I didn’t include the entire article because the subject here is the Bill and Melinda Foundation, if you want to read it all go here.
If the preceding information disturbs you, and it should, then you should loath The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, because they are one of the biggest supporters and financiers of this diabolical New World Order agenda.
How successful do you think Bill and Melinda Gates are in God’s eyes for financing such evil?
Bill and Melinda Gates are pro-death, anti-family, anti-God, and members of the insane global elite who think they have the right to decide who lives or dies amongst the poor of this world.
Only God has the right to control life, not a group of rich fools who want to reduce the world’s population. Even the Satanic Catholic Cult is upset with Melinda Gates for her hypocrisy in their religion.
Melinda Gates is a professed Catholic, yet she aids in funding these groups that want nothing more than to harm the Catholic Church and suppress its teachings.
So, while some might plead ignorance when confronted about supporting such groups, Melinda should know better.
The church of which she claims membership consistently teaches that abortion and contraception are evil and should not be endorsed.
Sure, the Gates’ give health grants, but even some of those have their flaws. For example, the campaign focused on AIDS seems to put more emphasis on a vaccine rather than tackling behavioral changes.
Human behavior is the root of this pandemic, yet those who work to put an end to AIDS rarely focus on a true way to help this tragedy: abstinence outside marriage.
Melinda Gates has a tremendous opportunity to make a difference by supporting real pro-family organizations rather than those who support the killing of children.
In 2005 alone, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gave a $3 million grant to the International Planned Parenthood Federation.
Why then, does a professed Catholic, choose to support a group that facilitates the killing of innocent preborn children? I don’t have the answer to that question. I guess we should ask Melinda.
Americans are idiots to keep sending billions of dollars in financial aid to struggling countries (all in the form of continuing federal debt mind you), who are deliberately kept in ruins by the same Council On Foreign Relations that professes to want to help the poor. It’s all a big scam!
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is sold out to the New World Order agenda, i.e., the Beast system of the coming antichrist.
Some say that Oprah is the antichrist and we know she is in cahoots with Obama. Without her endorsement he never would have been elected the first time. And Obama’s all Muslim.
We are living in the last days, and are increasingly headed for a cashless society, a global police state, a one-world New Age religion, and the massive extinction of human life.
Bill and Melinda Gates, as well as many others, are committed to the population elimination agenda. Don’t believe it?
The rich are still having children, but are secretly sterilizing poor women to prevent them from ever having any children. Many sickos today see no harm in this.
I have no respect for any organization that promotes, finances, and encourages child-murder, secret-sterilizations, forced-abortions.
Bill Gates: Satanist In Sheep’s Clothes. Theosophy And The “New Age” By Henry Makow PhD July 9, 2006
When Warren Buffet gave $31 billion to Bill Gates’ Foundation, I assumed it would advance the New World Order.
But when a reader showed me Gates’s connection with the pagan anti-Semitic Lucis (formerly Lucifer) Trust, Bill Gates and The Lucis (Lucifer) Trust I sat up and took notice.
Established by Alice Bailey in 1922, the Lucifer Publishing Company changed its name the following year for obvious reasons. Based at 120 Wall Street, the “Lucis Trust” is a vital part of the satanic cult that controls the Western world.
It started the New Age Movement to deviously induct society into the Luciferian mindset. Apparently, it is the official publisher of the United Nations and manages its “Meditation Room”
Bailey was the leader of the Theosophical Society which was founded in 1875 by Helena Blavatsky. Theosophy is a branch of Freemasonry.
According to Constance Cumbey, Theosophy spawned the occult societies that in turn created Adolf Hitler and the Nazi ideology. (“The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow: The New Age Movement and the Coming Age of Barbarism” 1983).
In 1949, Bailey wrote that the Jewish holocaust was due to the Jews’ bad karma:
The evil karma of the Jew today is intended to end his isolation, to bring him to the point of relinquishing material goals, of renouncing a nationality that has a tendency to be somewhat parasitic… (/Esoteric Healing/, p. 263).
Bailey teaches that Jews are from a different solar system and that Orientals and Blacks are from a different root race. Occidental races must control the world, as they are our most evolved root race.
This is of concern since a major focus of the Gates foundation is providing billions of dollars’ worth of vaccines to the poor in Third World countries.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has doubled in size due to the Buffet gift, and is five times larger than the U.S. next largest Ford Foundation.
The Gates Foundation is mentioned as a financial member of the Lucis subgroup, “The New Group of World Servers.”
Bill Gates is also mentioned on the Lucis Trust web site:
Through the philanthropic and humanitarian work of such people as George Soros, Bill Gates, Kofi Annan and Bono, to name just a few, people are beginning to recognize the needs of the world’s destitute people and acting to do something about them.
There is talk by Soros and another thinker, James Tobin, about the creation of some type of tax upon financial transactions that would be used to support domestic programs in the developing world.
Humanity surely has the ability to institute these and similar changes; it just needs the will to do so.
A tax on all financial transactions is part of what Lucis Trust calls “The Plan.” This begins with the proclamation of the “Maitreya,” the New Age Messiah who they have been grooming for more than three decades.
According to Cumbey, who is a lawyer, the “Plan” also includes a new world government and religion under Maitreya, a universal credit card system; an authority that would control the food supply; a universal tax; and a universal draft.
“They plan to outlaw all present religious practices and symbols of orthodox Jews and Christians,” Cumbey writes.
“New Agers have threatened violence and even extermination of Jews, Christians and Moslems who fail to cooperate with Maitreya and his new religion.”
The Theosophical Society believes Lucifer is God which they identify with the Sun. In “The Secret Doctrine” Blavatsky writes:
“In this case it is but natural…to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind.”
Western civilization has been subverted by an organized Satanic power and this cult is sponsored by the central banking cartel that must enslave mankind in order to consolidate its monopoly on our credit.
The credit check of the future might inquire into our religious and political views.
Obviously, like the war on poverty or the war on drugs, Gates’ war on disease will not be effective and may even advance the real depopulation goals of the New World Order.
