Proverbs 6:16-19 lists seven things that God hates. The seventh is “he that soweth discord among brethren”. Most preachers don’t call attention to false teachers because Christ desired unity among his followers. The apostle Paul also encouraged unity among Christians. But both Christ and Paul called attention to those who attempted to deceive God’s people, and in some cases, they named names. So we should not pursue unity if it means being silent while brethren are being deceived.
Many television preachers are teaching false doctrine for financial gain, and one pastor challenging false teachers is Leslie Hale. Listen to his sermon titled “This is not the gospel, this is garbage”. Don’t be fooled by pastor Hale’s humble appearance. His knowledge of God’s Word is exceptional and God has used him to build a ministry worth more than 30 million dollars.
God said to Ezekiel, if the watchman fails to warn people of an approaching threat, the blood of the people will be on the watchman. Ezekiel 33:2,6 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, If the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman…but the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.
The greatest threat to America and the church is not from without, it is from within. This is evident when the President of a prominent Christian university supports China’s torture of Christians.
Nazi war criminals were executed for the crimes being committed by Chinese officials. In 2012, a Congressional Commission exposed the Chinese government’s heinous crimes against women and children. There aren’t enough wives for Chinese men because 100 million girls have been killed by sex selection and forced abortion policies. Commission Chairman Frank Wolf said China has jailed many Catholic bishops and protestant pastors, and cited Chinese dissident Yu Jie who said “China is a greater threat than the Soviet Union ever was”.
Yu Jie had been tortured and said America needs a leader like Ronald Reagan who will stand up to the Communist dictators. Congressman Smith said Americans need to become much more aware of the “systematic use of torture” in China, which is a “dictatorship” with “no due process of law”. In the following interview, Reggie Littlejohn cites Chinese officials who “proudly say they’ve eliminated 400 million lives” via forced abortions.
China’s Communist government recently said they’re changing the one-child policy to a two child policy. So now they will start murdering children after parents have more than two children. In spite of this continuation of a massive crime against humanity, many American leaders characterize the two child policy as a moral victory. In the following interview, Reggie Littlejohn reveals the horrific truth about China’s new two child policy.
Unfortunately, many Christian leaders focus on Muslim persecution of Christians while ignoring communist China’s crimes against Christians, women and children. This is strange because in the past sixty years, China’s communist regimes have imprisoned, tortured, and killed more Christians than all Muslim terrorists combined.
In 2012, Chinese Pastor Bob Fu testified before the Congressional Commission on human rights abuse in China. He talked about the torture of Christian lawyer Gao Zhisheng. Gao’s wife also testified and said Chinese authorities burned his eyes with cigarettes and put toothpicks in his testicles.
During the following interview, pastor Fu said Gao has been tortured so badly “he cannot speak one complete sentence”. Christian media hype the horror of Islamic terrorists beheading Christians, but would you rather be beheaded or tortured until you are unable to speak one complete sentence?
Li Jing also testified before the Congressional Commission. Her husband is a Christian professor serving a ten year prison sentence for promoting democratic reforms in China. Click on the next link to hear Li Jing’s testimony and Rep. Smith responding by saying, China’s communist regime is holding “tens of thousands of political and religious prisoners”. There is a shocking contrast between pastor Fu’s interview on WORLD OVER and Billy Wilson’s positive portrayal of China’s brutal regime.
Billy Wilson is President of Oral Roberts University (ORU) in Oklahoma. Five days after pastor Fu’s interview, President Wilson hosted an ORU video about China and Chinese Christians. His pro China commentary could have been a propaganda piece put out by China’s communist government. Mr. Wilson’s politically correct white wash of China’s brutal abortion policies, and torture of Christians, was repulsive. He never mentions forced abortion or torture but refers to it as “pressure” that’s good because it’s “purifying” the church.
What would President Wilson do if his wife and children were subject to forced abortions, imprisonment, and torture for their faith? Would he say, “I love you and am praying for you, but I will not help you because torture is purifying your soul.” This would be a cruel and sadistic response to a loved one in need, and yet, that’s President Wilson’s response to Chinese Christians enduring brutal persecution.
While in prison, the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy about Christians like Billy Wilson who abandon their persecuted brethren. 2 Timothy 4:16 At my first answer (legal defense) no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge.
Throughout the Bible, God used for good what others intended for evil. Joseph’s brothers beat him, threw him in a pit, and sold him into slavery, but what they intended for evil, God used for good. Joseph was speaking to his brothers in Genesis 50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. Jesus described the persecution of believers as evil, but said God would bless those who suffered for their faith. Matthew 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
So God works all things together for good to those who love him and are called according to His purpose. But the Bible also warns against calling evil good. Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! In President Wilson’s video, he clearly portrays China’s evil regime as doing good.
Billy Wilson’s report on China was in stark contrast to Pastor Fu’s, who fled persecution in China and now runs China Aid, an American foundation that helps Chinese dissidents. Pastor Fu demonstrates the proper Christian response to China’s persecution of Christians. He spent three years traveling the U.S. and Europe seeking support for the release of Gao Zhisheng. Pastor Fu said 150,000 people of conscience signed a petition calling for Gao’s release and abolition of torture in China. Fu cited Americans who died in the Civil War to free the slaves and said, “we must not forget the virtue of those who fought for freedom”.
In spite of China’s increased persecution, pastor Fu says the church is growing, but “America must support the persecuted, not the persecutors.” Unfortunately, many Christian leaders seem to support the persecutors. Their silence, if not support, has emboldened the communist dictators who mock Gao’s wife saying, “she can go to the White House everyday, so what, we can make Gao Zhisheng disappear.”
President Wilson repeatedly says “pressure” is purifying the Chinese church. But he never mentions China’s torture or forced abortions, let alone opposition to them. If he believes torture and forced abortion are justified because they purify the Chinese church, I shudder to think what he would support in America.
President Wilson’s video is approximately 28 minutes long. A little after 11 minutes Mr. Wilson says China has been “overtaken by capitalism”. This is a blatant lie as the communist government owns a controlling interest in most major industries. The following paragraph is an excerpt from a Financial Times article titled, “Hu rejects calls to reform state’s role”.
China’s President Hu Jintao rejected calls for change to the state’s dominant role in the world’s second-largest economy on Thursday in an address to past and present leaders of the Communist party. With just one week to go before he steps down as the party’s general secretary, Mr Hu insisted China would “unswervingly” adhere to “the basic economic system in which public ownership is the mainstay and economic entities of diverse ownership develop together”. In his speech to mark the opening of the Communist party’s 18th National Congress, he also said the party and government “should steadily enhance the vitality of the state-owned sector of the economy and its capacity to leverage and influence the economy”.
Christian media rightly describe Islamic terrorism as evil. But few in Christian media describe the deeds of communist China’s regime as evil. Why not? Political correctness. It’s not politically correct to call the actions of China’s regime evil because partnering with them generates huge profits for US companies. While Muslim persecution of Christians is condemned, the US rewards China with “free” trade deals that funnel Trillions of dollars to communist dictators. And because of large trade deficits with China, domestic U.S. industries are sold to the government of China.
If US leaders sold large chunks of the U.S. to Iran’s Islamic government, it would be considered treason. So why isn’t selling U.S. industries to a communist government considered treason? Republicans oppose U.S. government ownership of domestic industries, but they support foreign government ownership. Hmmm? And China’s government continues to make large acquisitions of hard assets in America. Because of a Supreme Court decision regarding campaign finance (Citizens United), China’s Communist Party can influence U.S. elections and legislation.
Raymond Arroyo is the EWTN host that interviewed pastor Bob Fu. Raymond said we hear a lot about Muslim persecution of Christians, but little about the “savage” persecution of Christians in China. This media bias seems intentional because in the past 60 years, China’s government has imprisoned, tortured and killed more Christians than all Muslim countries combined. Even though Chinese dissident Yu Jie said “China is a greater threat than the Soviet Union ever was”, Pat Robertson’s 700 Club continually reports Muslim brutality while ignoring China’s crimes.
Billy Wilson and Pat Robertson are staunch supporters of Israel. As such, they would denounce anyone saying terrorism directed at Israel is good because it’s purifying the Jews, so why the double standard when it comes to Chinese Christians? The New Testament apostles said trials and tribulation refine our faith, but Wilson’s cover up the communist regime’s evil deeds demonstrates deceit and tacit support. Mr. Wilson’s tacit support for China’s brutal policies should concern American Christians because he’s “educating” young people at ORU.
The governments of Iran and North Korea sponsor terrorism directed at America, and both are client states of China. In fact, China is arming both countries with nuclear and chemical weapons. Evidence of this came out in a Senate hearing to confirm the US ambassador to China. You can find links to the Senate hearing in this post: US TRADE SUBSIDIZES CHINA’S FORCED ABORTIONS AND TORTURE OF CHRISTIANS.
Why are Christian media silent when communist China uses Iran and North Korea to threaten America? Telling the truth would threaten “free” trade with China and the economic interests of companies like Apple. Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, recently admitted he’s gay and said, “I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me”. In today’s world, free markets and free trade mean a global economy free from God’s law. The Bible says it best in 1 Timothy 6:10, the love of money is the root of all evil.
The love of money also affects Christian media analysis of the War on Terror. They rightly criticize Obama for not linking Islam to terrorism, but never mention that Saudi Arabia, a US ally, is the primary sponsor of ISIS and al Qaeda. Western governments (and Christian media) play down the connection between Saudi Arabia, its Wahhabist faith, and jihadism, whether of the variety espoused by Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda or by al-Baghdadi’s ISIS. There is nothing conspiratorial or secret about these links, 15 of the 19 hijackers on 911 were Saudi and all were Wahhabis, as was Bin Laden and most of the donors who funded the operation.
The former head of British intelligence, Richard Dearlove, says Saudi Arabia is the primary source of funding for ISIS and al Qaeda.
Media misinformation is pervasive. Most portray Iran as the primary sponsor of Islamic terrorism. Iran does sponsor terrorism, but being Shiite, Iran is at war with Sunni jihadists. And nearly all terrorism since 911 has been perpetrated by Sunni groups with close ties to Wahhabism, the Saudi government’s official sect. Sunni terrorist groups include the Muslim Brotherhood, al Shabaab, Boko Haram, al Nusra, ISIS, al Qaeda, and the Taliban.
Iran allowed US planes in Iranian airspace during the invasion of Afghanistan because Iran opposes the Taliban. And Iranian backed militias are fighting ISIS in Iraq. Furthermore, Iran could not threaten the West without support from China, and communist China could not support Iran without Trillions of dollars of US investment capital. What a tangled web they weave… In his farewell speech, President Eisenhower warned Americans about the military industrial complex.
America has been fighting Saudi backed terrorists for more than ten years. During that time, tens of thousands of Americans have been maimed and killed, and we’ve spent Trillions of dollars only to see Islamic terrorists grow in number and strength. How is this possible? The only rational conclusion is that perpetual war is the goal. Why is perpetual war the objective? During a state of war, tyrants can force citizens to give up liberty for security.
The War on Terror is a means to an end, i.e., global tyranny. All around the world, terrorism is used as a pretext to continually erode individual liberties and consolidate power in despotic governments.
It’s not unusual for tyrants to play both sides of a war. For example, Saudi Arabia is a US ally in the War on Terror, but Saudi Arabia funds ten thousand Islamic schools in Pakistan that produce graduates “perfectly prepared for a career in jihad”. So America sends troops to fight terrorists produced by their Saudi ally. Saudi and US leaders are playing both sides of the War on Terror.
Their motive is simple, acquire power and wealth to advance globalization, a.k.a., global communism. The spoils of war used to go to the victors, not so in the War on Terror. CNBC reported that STATE OWNED companies from China and India are mining a Trillion dollars of minerals in Afghanistan, and much of Iraq’s oil is going to communist China.
The War on Terror is best described by Proverbs 1:10-19 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. 11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause: 12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit: 13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil: 14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:
15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: 16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood. 17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird. 18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives. 19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.
Like legalized abortion, the purpose of the War on Terror is to destroy our nation’s soul, and destroy the souls of those who falsely believe they’re fighting to protect America. Most Bible believing Christians openly oppose abortion based on their belief in the sanctity of life. But the same Christians blindly support every US war. This blind support for war is an example of political correctness silencing Bible believing churches and causing them to call evil good.
The Bible clearly supports the right of self defense for individuals and nations, but murder is sin. Fighting terrorism begins with holding US leaders accountable for aiding the Wahhabist enemy.
The religious aspect of terrorism will be used to restrict the preaching and teaching of Christianity. Why? True Christians believe Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation, and this is characterized as intolerant and therefore responsible for fomenting conflict. So if religion leads to World War III, in the interest of “peace”, Christianity as defined by the Bible will be illegal.
But the greatest threat to America and Christians is not Islamic terrorism or communist China. An even greater threat is bipartisan leaders who hide their antichrist agenda behind a Christian facade. And the greatest threat to America is a church that’s deceived and silent while America is destroyed by evil masquerading as national security, free trade, and social justice.
2 Thessalonians 2:8-14 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: 14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
