    Thank you, guys. @disqus_AlggZ21V3e:disqus : I agree with you for the most part. I would say, yes, Christians will face persecution of some sort. Whether or not our generation will face the sort of persecution Egypt is facing, we will see.

    We all have to realize the only racist in the US are the blacks. Led by Sharpton, Jackson, Michelle ans Barack Obama. Jewish people have been persecuted for over 5700 years, you never hear them complain. If the blacks don’t like it here in the US, then leave.

      well, this is the year Rosh Hashannah 5774 and soon to be Nisan… their calendar is 40 years behind ours, and i wonder what is going to happen in Nov 2016, when it will be 5777. I say this because of Israel and the US–they are connected to two dates and by 7’s. 12-7-41 to 5-14-48==3 7’s plus 7 years. I have never seen or heard any prophecy people bring this one up.

    By the grace of God, our generation was given a nation unlike any other in history. Our founders 400 years ago understood this. Those who gained our independence in 1776 placed their trust in ‘Christ, our king, and no other’. More than 600,000 died in the process of removing slavery from our midst in a bloody civil war. Other ‘wars to end all wars’ followed and consumed many more of our young men – and so it goes on and on!
    While Jesus told us to ‘make disciples of all nations’, our churches decided that it would be better if the government made disciples through public education. This process began here in the19th century and has reached its crowning achievement today.
    Where was the church all this time? Why, they were preparing for the return of Christ, too busy with personal salvation matters to deal with the mundane matters of family and civil government.
    “Why, all the signs are around us – the culture around us is disintegrating – must be the end times. Isn’t that a sign of the end?”
    Has anyone asked: “How much did the church have to do with this?”
    When Jesus said that ‘all authority in heaven and earth has been given me’ and then designated His church as the delegates or ambassadors to ‘git’er done’ – I would conclude that we ain’t been listenin’!
    Never too late to start, eh? Everything begins and ends with His church – as in ‘whatever you bind or loose’ will be done!

      the 1950’s and 60’s were some of the best years for america… ( before the DRUG CULTURE attacked it )
      Eisenhower did a good job; even now, the Baby boomer babes and dudes still get the best things:
      1) two parents in the home in the early years
      2) better vaccines against polio
      3) better plastic surgeries; and could get teeth implants as well
      4) the generations that came after will not get the familial connections the babes and dudes have got–because we dismantled it since we are ‘spoiled’ and the millenials need us to be strong for them, and to give them wisdom not necessarioy knowledge–they need ot know, they cant take chances. Although some millenials are getting the message and not acting wild… they just don’t have the protection because of smartphones from HELL.. just today on 3/13. MIddle school boys were blackmailing girls into having sex with them, and this was from ‘GOOD SCHOOLS!! not ‘ghetto schools’ in the Bay area

    While I may not fit the definition of your run of the mill “Christian”, I am one. Although my family went to church most Sundays and my dad sang in the choirs of the churches we went to, I was raised to believe: “You don’t have to be in a building to believe in God.” As far as I can tell, there will come a day when it will take men like me to become, “The Backhand Of God”, to set this nation aright again.

    The only way our “Constitutionally Protected Rights” are going to be protected is if we who “Formerly Served In The Armed Forces”, become this regime’s worst nightmare. Which is exactly why they’re coming after us. When this speech becomes illegal, I’ll become a criminal: “I may become an enemy of the state, but never of the people”. Remember this: “Always aim just below the blue helmet. No matter what color it is.”

  • Matthew

    “In order to preserve our liberties, we have to understand them and be prepared to defend them but, practically speaking, that’s fighting the “culture war.” Jesus taught us that we are blessed when others persecute us on his account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven (Matthew 5:11-12). Persecution may ultimately come for us all but we don’t have to hasten it’s arrival by leaving “politics” to those who have no regard for liberty.”

    God doesn’t want us to fight the culture wars but you want to go ahead and fight them anyway because it serves your ego. Why don’t you get off your sorry assss and fly to Egypt to protect your Christians brothers and sisters? Because you only care about yourself. That is not God’s way or his word.

      @1ef0aecabccf911a04c06840b8ed4ac7:disqus You say God doesn’t want us to fight the culture wars but then you challenge me to go to Egypt to, I assume, physically fight to protect Egyptian Christians. If “God’s way” is for me to go and physically protect Egyptians what would be so terrible about fighting an ideological battle in the form a culture war? By the way, what do you perceive the culture war to be and why doesn’t God want us to fight it?

      The ‘Culture Wars’ is just a euphemism for government enforced religious discrimination. If you don’t think what happened to the Jewish people can happen to Christians then you don’t understand men, Egypt, Syria and other countries where Christians are persecuted, assaulted and murdered is a prime example.
      We as Christians are commanded to stand up and protect our faith in Christ, sadly the churches today have been infiltrated by the left, they have watered down God’s commandments and rewritten the bible to effect a mewling apologetic version of Christianity.
      Did Jesus not say if you have a purse and cape sell it and purchase a sword, why do you think he said that, a sword can be used for two things, one to protect yourself and those you love and two to attack those who would harm you and yours.
      Sadly today a lot of clergy deliberately misinterpret what happened in the garden of Gethsemane when Jesus rebuked Simon Peter for drawing his sword and cutting off the ear of a soldier of the high priests, Jesus only did this so that the prophecies would be realized and man could then be saved by his sacrifice, so sadly our misinformed clergy preach religious suicide and remember this passage, give unto Ceasar what is Caesar’s and unto God what is God’s, so if God condemns sins then we as Christians are supposed to stand against those sins, not bow down to Ceasar and obey his immoral and illegitamate laws to accept Homesexuality, Gay Marriage, Abortion and persecution, no we are supposed to be upright and strong and fight against such laws.

    For the life of me, I cannot figure out why so many churches and pastors will not speak out on these issues. How is it not incumbent on them to do so as our shepherd???

    • 2EdgedSword

      The reason is cowardice – the same fault that prompted God to order all cowards to be removed from the Tabernacle, taken outside the gates and stoned to death. The humanists have fabricated the pacifist “scriptural interpretations.” And they are the direct product of Fabian Socialism which has been at work in the US since 1883. Obama is a Fabian socialist.

    There is a difference between unpreventable persecution and intentional violation of societal norms. Our Constitution and legal system provides several means through which we must react to Anarchism of radical political factions. This IS our government, and God helped us establish it. We are not permitted to stand idle for evil to overtake us – that becomes our fault and is not covered under God’s insurance policy because it is not: an act of God, a manifestation of prophecy, Bush’s fault, or the devil’s fault. If we let this continue we will be twice victims: first at the hands of evildoers, and second at the hands of Jesus at His judgment seat.

    I am not sure about the comparison between our Copts brothers and us, over there in Egypt if a Christian gets involved into politics, then an Islamic party attacks, if they don’t get involved then the other Islamic party attacks. Why are Morsi’s followers attacking Christians? I supposed because they got involved in taking him out. I have no problem with getting involved into politics, but so far I haven’t seen any positive result in the last 25 years of Christian political activism. Lawmakers don’t change hearts only force people.
