Since the kicking of God--and heaven forbid the mention of Christ--out of the public schools, and promotion of the liberal Democrats' agenda, the godless church of liberalism embraces behavior that the Church of Satan, www,churchofsatan.com condemns, e.g., rape, child molesting, sexual defilement or sexual activity against those unwilling or naivete, etc., LaVey, The Satanic Bible, pp. 37, 38. And the official position of the Catholic church condemns the liberal Democrats' policies regarding the brainwashing of school children, abortion, and homosexuality. However, the local Bishops have taken little, if any, action to excommunicate any or few Parishers for the sinful and evil agendas they promote.
Part of the problem lies with the pastors and leaders of the Chrisitan churches. Few are speaking out against the liberals' agendas, and many are embracing and voting for liberal candidates. No Christian should never vote for a liberal for any public office. And I believe God will demand accountability on that Great Judgment day.
God loves sinners and so must we Christians, but we must NOT support their evil ways. When any group of people reject righteousness and embrace evil, we must "come out from among them, and be ye separate." 2 Cor. 6:17
In my early years growing up I heard a lot of hate preaching against sinners. I don't know of a single soul it won to Christ. I have worked with Catholics and homosexuals and been on very friendly terms with them. I did not agree with them, and they didn't agree with me, but we treated each other with respect. I hope I had a positive influence on these individuals. Hate will achieve nothing, but love will win.
When the people became too evil and sinful, God decided to destroy the human race with a flood, (Gen. 6 & 7) and only saved a few from death. When the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah became too wicked, God rained fire and brimstone down upon them and only saved Lot from death. Gen. 19:24. Sodom and Gomorrah are to serve as an example of what shall come upon cities that follow their ways of sin and godlessness. 2 Peter 2:6, Jude 1:7.
"The wages of sin is death." Rom. 6:23.
Yhe election of 2022 is history, and the election of 2024 is the next national election. I was pleased with some winners and unhappy with others. However, the biggest winner was Satan.
When pastors of major churches support homosexuals, gay "marriage"--as they are known [gay marriage does not exist because two men or two women cannot become "one flesh" as God created marriage] and abortion being led by Satan. Satan is well known for entering and deceiving God's people. He did David ( 1 Chr. 21:1) and David sincerely repented (1 Chr. 21:8) Many pastors would do well to follow David's example.
One well known late preacher said, we used to have knotty pine churches and granite preachers. Now we have granite churches and knotty pine preachers." Old time preachers preached the gospel and got people saved. Now we have prosperity preachers getting rich as the world goes to hell.
However, the issues facing America and the world are far more serious than an election. The problem in America and the world is SIN. America needs a revival--an old fashion revival of hell's fire and brimstone preaching.
For several years, the Democrats have used our public schools as churches to teach and brainwash the to espouse the godless religion of liberalism and the teacher as High Priests. They have kicked God and the Bible out of our schools and the public square. Hollywood actors and actresses have become our nation's babysitters via television and have done serious harm to, at least, two generations of our children.
Two main groups of people are doing serious harm to our country: One is the lawyers and judges which have been responsible for the Supreme Court's opinions legalizing gay marriage and prohibiting pray and the Bible in the public schools. The second group are the preachers and teachers promoting false doctrine and welcoming sinners into the churches as teachers and leaders. Both groups are heading into hell.
"Woe unto you ye lawyers for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering, ye hindered." (Luke 11:53)
"But woe to you scribes, Pharsisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men, for ye neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow them that were entering to inter." (Matt. 23:13)
When Christ gave Peter the keys to the kingdom, he said:
"I give unto you the keys to the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shall loose on earth shall be loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." (Matt. 16:19).
We see evil everywhere and many people believe the government has the solution to the nation's and the world's problems.
Some people believe the Democrats have the solution to our problems and some think the Republicans have the solution. The truth is we Christians have the solution but too few have their hand on the plow. Satan has so many believers deceived to say nothing of his deception of the unbelievers. False preachers, false teachers and false prophets are leading people to hell by the millions because Christ is not being lifted up. He said:
"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto me." (J referring to his forthcoming death on the cross.
Christ also said: "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will rise it up." (John 3:19) "The temple" he was referring to was his own body and NOT the temple at Jerusalem.
Christ told Peter:
"Thou art Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my church and the fates of hell shall not prevail against it." (Matt. 16:18).
I have written the about scriptures to clear up a vast misunderstanding of Christianity doctrine that only Peter got the keys to the kingdom of heaven and could open or close heaven. All believers have the keys to the kingdom and the majority are failing to use to loosen what Christ has given us believers.
Of course, being prepared to meet Christ and going to heaven is the most important. benefit of being saved; however, there are other important benefits including not having to fear death. Having read several books of testimonies of people that have died, many testimonies of hospice. nurses that have witnessed hundreds of deaths, and testimonies of medical doctors, there is no pain of death of the righteous, When Christ told his disciples that he would return and receive them unto himself (John 14:3) he is doing just that, Many dying patients have said, "Jesus is here" and immediately died. we may suffer before death, but death is painless for the righteous. I do not believe that Stephen felt any pain when he was stoned to death (Acts 7:59). Testimonies about the deaths of the unsaved are far different.
