Ephesians 5:11, 13-16: "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather
reprove them. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth
make manifest is light. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and
Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
Redeeming the time, because the days are evil."
The 1828 Noah Webster Dictionary defines:
Reprove: To blame, to convince of a fault, or to make it manifest, to excite a sense of guilt.
Circumspectly: Cautiously; with watchfulness every way; with attention to guard against surprise
or danger.

Obamacare To Be Enforced By Armed IRS Thugs

Paul Joseph Watson | If the health care bill was such a positive act of reform, as
establishment Democrats and the corporate media are pitching it, then how come it
needs to be enforced by means of coercion at the hands of thousands of armed IRS

That was the context of the discussion during Ron Paul’s appearance on Fox Business’
America’s Nightly Scoreboard last night, as the Congressman continued to speak out
against the tyrannical nature of Obamacare.

Paul emphasized the need to protect the private option in health care as a fundamental
right for all Americans not to be reliant on the government for their services.

“During this debate they talked a whole lot about the public option, I just wish they would
protect the private option, give us a chance to have it private, just like you should have a
chance to have private education, home schooling, you should always protect that….if
you always had a private option in medicine some of us could survive and at least we
could set an example for the type of medicine that the people should be getting,” said
the Congressman.

Host David Asman pointed out that it would now be illegal to have private health care
and that people would be forced to buy insurance under the constant glare of the
16,000 plus new IRS agents being hired to harass people into compliance to the new

Under Obamacare, $10 billion dollars is allocated to pay for 16,500 IRS agents who will
collect and enforce mandatory “premiums.”

Paul said that the people who previously needed to carry the least insurance would now
be forced to carry the maximum, and be hounded by the IRS as a result.

“This is a command society now and medicine is right at the forefront of this….16,500
armed bureaucrats coming to make this program work – if it was a good program and
everybody liked it, you wouldn’t need 16,500 thugs coming with their guns and putting
you in jail if you didn’t follow all the rules,” said Paul.

The Congressman highlighted the fact that people don’t trust the government’s record
on social programs, pointing out that Medicare, Medicaid and the Post Office are all
bankrupt, and that the majority of Americans have little confidence in Obamacare being
any different.

Paul said there was a chance parts of the bill would be overturned if Republicans were
victorious in November, but that the biggest threat to the legislation was the probability
that the entire system would collapse, labeling Obamacare a “Horrendous new burden
that we have placed on the economy.”


Where Do Your Hard Earned IRS Tax Dollars Really Go?

And where do the income taxes that are collected actually go? In 1982, President
Ronald Reagan formed The President's Private Sector Survey On Cost Control, an
independent panel of 160 of the country's top business leaders headed by Peter
Grace and known as The Grace Commission, in order to find ways to cut federal

In their report submitted to President Reagan on January 15, 1984, this blue-
ribbon panel stated the following, quoting directly from page 12 of their report:

"Resistance to additional income taxes would be even more widespread if people
were aware that one-third of all their taxes are consumed by waste and
inefficiency in the Federal government as previously identified. With two-thirds of
everyone's personal income taxes wasted or not collected, 100% of what is
collected is absorbed solely by interest on the federal debt ... in other words, all
individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the
services taxpayers expect from the government."

1. The IRS is not a U.S. Government Agency. It is an Agency of the IMF.
(Diversified Metal Products v. IRS et al. CV-93-405E-EJE U.S.D.C.D.I., Public Law
94-564, Senate Report 94-1148 pg. 5967, Reorganization Plan No. 26, Public Law

2. The IMF is an Agency of the UN. (Blacks Law Dictionary 6th Ed. Pg. 816)

3. The U.S. Has not had a Treasury since 1921. (41 Stat. Ch.214 pg. 654)

4. The U.S. Treasury is now the IMF. (Presidential Documents Volume 29-No.4 pg.
113, 22 U.S.C. 285-288)

What's the big deal about the Fed? For starters, it's not, contrary to popular
belief, a part of the government.

It's privately owned...which means the United States does not control its own
money supply. Strange but true.

The Fed was created around the same time that the US adopted such charming
practices as taxing the income of working people. Who really rules America?

Declaration of Dependence--Health-care Reform

Pyramids of Control--March 23, 2010--Our present-day government has become an
abomination against the founding principles upon which America was created. The
United States government has officially announced its decree of dependence through
bailouts and the outright robbery known as “Health-care Reform.”

The only growth industry left in the United States is the government

The Bureau of Labor Statistics Overview of the 2008-2018 Projections shows that since
government has now co-opted health-care, finance, insurance, and information, it will
hold fully 30% of all future employment growth, far outweighing any private sector. This
portends the inevitable rise of a full-fledged collectivist state. As jobs in the real
economy continue to be decimated, new graduates will seek the lifetime security of
government work, further strengthening the very system which seeks to enslave them.
The new unholy trinity of health-care legislation, cybersecurity legislation, and
environmental legislation all but guarantees an all-out war on the taxpayer and the self-
reliant individual. The management of this state behemoth will need more IRS agents,
more social workers, more health-care administrators, more Internet security experts,
and more environmental police to oversee all key areas of society. For those who like a
sick joke, there is one other growth sector: employment services. Uncle Sam definitely
want you.


The House of Representatives handed President Obama his greatest victory yet
by passing the National Health Care bill and sending it to the White House desk
for signature. However, Planned Parenthood immediately publicly stated that the
Executive Order which Obama promised to Rep. Stupak to get him to change his
vote was worthless!

NEWS BRIEF: "Planned Parenthood: Pro-Abortion Bill a Victory, Executive Order
Meaningless ", Life News, by Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com Editor, March 22, 2010

"Planned Parenthood called the pro-abortion health care bill the House approved late
Sunday night a victory and applauded the financial windfall it expected to reap as a
result. The abortion business also dismissed the executive order President Barack
Obama promised Congressman Bart Stupak as harmless."

"Richard dismissed the executive order, which has been slammed by pro-life groups, as
a "a symbolic gesture ... to anti-choice Congressman Bart Stupak (D-MI), which has
diverted attention from the central goal'."

From the moment I heard that Rep. Stupak was changing his vote because Obama
promised him an Executive Order forbidding foreign funds from being used for
abortions, I knew that Stupak was grabbing at a straw designed to placate his voters --
even if only for a little while.

The Planned Parenthood president then explained a little more clearly.

"Despite Stupak's contention that the executive order would implement his abortion
funding ban, Richards says that's not the case. 'What the president’s executive order
did not do is include the complete and total ban ... that Congressman Bart Stupak (D–
MI) had insisted upon," Richards said. "So while we regret that this proposed Executive
Order....it is critically important to note that it does not include the Stupak abortion ban."

" 'Thanks to supporters like you, we were able to keep the Stupak abortion ban out of
the final legislation and President Obama did not include the Stupak language in his
Executive Order', Richards admitted."

President Obama is walking the fine line between making people think he is saying
something when he is really not saying that at all.

Now that you can see how happy Planned Parenthood is that their income from
increased abortions is now going to skyrocket, you need to stop to read our new
Headline News article, which proves that the same Population Reduction goals of
Hitler's Nazi Medical Machine are being followed by ObamaCare.

New Health Care Law Will, Indeed, Set Up Death Panels

Remember this reality: this Health Care Law is NOT about providing compassionate
Health Care for every citizen; rather, this law is designed to clamp government control
over every citizen from cradle to grave.

In fact, this Health Care Law is a sign that the planned Absolute Dictatorship is coming
and is closer than most people would like to think!

This is the bottom line truth about why America has a massive National Health Care
Law now.
We know the Illuminati Plan is to eventually reduce the world's human population by
66% -95%. Listen to their words below:

"... the secret societies were planning as far back as 1917 to invent an artificial
threat ... in order to bring humanity together in a one-world government which
they call the New World Order." [Bill Cooper, "Behold A Pale Horse", p. 27; Cooper
is a New Age author exposing the horror of this plan]

"Take control of the world ... to reduce ... the world to a safe level by a process of
benevolent slavery and genocide." [Ibid., p. 49]

"The only alternative left to the world's ruling elite was to increase the death rate
... they did not relish the possible consequences of an enraged public upon
discovering that they were being systematically murdered ... a very short but very
deadly global war using nuclear weapons upon select population concentrations
was contemplated and ... was not ruled out ... Dr. Aurelio Peccei of the Club of
Rome ... advocated that a plague be introduced that would have the same effect
as the Black Death of history." [Ibid., p. 167]

This is the essence of the Health Care Plan just signed into law by President Obama:
"to increase the death rate" and to reduce you and me to a point of "benevolent
slavery and genocide".

Incredibly, this new Health Care Law establishes a powerful "Independent Medicare
Advisory Board". (Read full details in "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
H.R. 3590")

This new "Independent Medicare Advisory Board" will set up the same type of death
committees. The legislative document even has a name for it: The "Expert Advisory
Board". This medical committee is referred to time and time again in the body of the
legislation. The elderly, the terminally ill, and everyone else whose medical and
emotional state of health is not deemed "worthy of life" will soon be routinely denied
treatment. And, when they die, our leaders will consider this flood of death to be
"benevolent ... genocide"!

The Real Hussein Obama can now be seen clearly
   3-26-10--When a Head of State visits the US he or she is greeted with honor, some-
 times even military honors. For example when one of the Arab Head's of State comes
  to the White House they are even met at the Air-Port by high ranking dignitaries even
the President Himself. If it happens to be the King of Saudi Arabia, Obama would even
bow to him showing his submission to Islam. If it was a third world leader from Africa he
would get a full military honor reception. And when they came to the White House they
    would come through the front door and be brought to the Oval Office. All of this of
            course would be covered by the media with full press coverage.
BUT, when the Jewish Leader of "Israel" comes to visit the White House he is brought
in under the cover of night and not to the front door, he is brought to a side door and is
 met with an unknown person and quickly ushered into a side room where he waits for
    the grand appearance of the President, who takes his time and then arrives with
arrogance and distain showing what has been reported as a vindictive attitude towards
                        the Jewish Leader of Israel, Netanyahu.

It would seem to me that the cover has been completely blown off any pretence of
Obama's position on Israel and the Arab's who call themselves "Palestinians". He no
longer negotiates with Israel today he Demands that Israel submit to the Islamic Arabs
and give up their land in order to appease the Islamic Arabs. In short what he is
demanding is the final and total destruction of the Jewish State of Israel.
Israel is a Jewish nation 1/19th the size of California, and is one of the smallest nations
on the face of the earth. With only about 8,000 sq. miles of land mass it is roughly two
times the size of Rhode Island. Israel is 260 miles at its longest, has a 112-mile
coastline, is 60 miles at its widest, and between 3 and 9 miles at its narrowest. The
nation of Israel is surrounded by twenty-two hostile Arab/Islamic dictatorships that are
640 times her size and 60 times her population. Arab propagandists call Israel
"expansionist." There is NO truth to this statement as Israel, occupies one-sixth of one
percent of the lands called Arab. There are 13 million Jews in the world (almost 5 million
fewer than they were in 1939) and 300 million Arabs and 1.4 billion Muslims.
Arab propagandists and biased irresponsible news services call Israel "expansionist"
and the "aggressor" against Arab peoples. Israel has fought only defensive wars; to the
Arabs, Israel's resistance to their aggression - which would lead to Israel's total
destruction if allowed to go unchecked - is illogically viewed as an "act of aggression."
Is "illogical" the proper term to be using here? Of course it is. But is logic really a
considered factor in much of today's news propaganda?

Obama knows the truth of who and what he is will catch up with him, his intent to
destroy the United States from within and his hatred for the USA and even its flag
is becoming well known. But God has something to say to Mr. Obama;


[1] The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel , saith the LORD, which
stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth
the spirit of man within him.
[2] Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round
about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem
[3] And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all
that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the
earth be gathered together against it.
[4] In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his
rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will
smite every horse of the people with blindness.
[5] And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of
Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.
[6] In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the
wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people
round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited
again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.

Obama has given Netanyahu until Saturday to give his answer on his demands, that
causes me too wonder how long God will give Mr. Obama?

Unlike times past when the Israeli people wanted their government to give in to the
wishes of the United States at least to some degree, this time Netanyahu has the
backing of 90% if not more of the Israeli public even the left wing Parties. The latest
Israeli polls show only 9% have a favorable opinion of Obama and believe he favors
the "Palestinians" and the Islamic Arab World. In fact, I personally don't know one
Israeli who doesn't believe that Obama is a Moslem.

U.N. chief: Israeli settlement plans 'unacceptable' In a rare direct rebuke to a U.N.
member state, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon told the U.N. Security Council in
New York Wednesday that Israel's latest settlement expansion plans in East Jerusalem
are "unacceptable.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

                       India is preparing to force all its 1.2 billion people to accept a
                       National ID Card with biometric features!

                       NEWS BRIEF: "India to issue all 1.2 billion citizens with biometric
                       ID cards", Telegraph.co.uk, July 15, 2009

                         "The operation will be run by the Unique Identification Authority, a
                         new government department created specifically for the task of
                         assigning every living Indian an exclusive number and gathering
                         and electronically storing their personal details. It is hoped that
                         the operation, which is expected to cost at least £3 billion, will
fight corruption but it could also be used to identify illegal immigrants and tackle

Of course, this program will also condition Indians that the government has the right to
force them to accept a national ID card. Such a system is a precursor to the ultimate
'Mark of the Beast' implanted chip. After Antichrist is on the world scene, Indians will be
told that their biometric national ID card is too susceptible to loss and theft and that the
only way in which to solve this problem is to initiate an implantable chip.

This same rationale for the Mark of the Beast will be repeated in every country on earth.

"Nandan Nilekani, who is in charge of the operation, called it a hugre, mind-boggling
challenge. 'But we have the opportunity to give every Indian citizen, for the first time, a
unique identity. We can transform the country', he told The Times. At present Indian
citizens can be issued with up to 20 proofs of identity, including birth certificates, driving
licences and ration cards, although none is accepted universally. A computer chip in
each card will contain personal data and proof of identity, such as fingerprint or iris
scans. Criminal records and credit histories may also be included."

At this point, the inevitable massive government database on individual citizens comes
into play.

"Mr Nilekani, who left Infosys, the outsourcing giant that he co-founded, to take up his
new job, wants the cards to be linked to a 'ubiquitous online database'; accessible from

Such a 'ubiquitous online database' is essential for the coming global dictatorship of
Antichrist -- worldwide. http://www.cuttingedge.org/newsletters/newsalert.htm

                       NEWS BRIEF: "Big immigration march in Washington ", Los
                       Angeles Times, March 22, 2010

                       Immigrants from Mexico are marching in Washington, D.C.,
                       demanding action on a bill which would legalize illegal
                       immigrants. But, beware of the hidden agenda! Also note that this
                       ID card is to be based on biometric technology - just as we
                       reported for India, above.

"Determined to push a major overhaul of the immigration system to the top of the
nation's political agenda, tens of thousands of people rallied Sunday on the National
Mall, challenging Congress to fix laws that they say separate families and hurt the
country's economic and social vitality. Organizers and supporters of the 'March for
America' campaign -- who demonstrated as House members cast a historic vote on
healthcare -- want to make an immigration overhaul the next big undertaking in

"Earlier this month, Sens. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)
proposed a new blueprint for immigration overhaul, which the White House has
endorsed. Among other measures, the plan would require biometric Social Security
cards to ensure that illegal workers cannot get jobs; additional border security; a
temporary worker plan; and some path to legalization."

Physiological Biologics are related to but are not limited to fingerprint, face
recognition, DNA, hand and palm geometry, iris recognition, which has largely replaced
retina, and odor/scent

Notice the phrase, "some path to legalization".

What immigration reform is going to accomplish, either directly or indirectly, is a
proclamation that the only way to solve the illegal immigration problem is to grant North
American Union citizenship to all citizens, from Mexico to Canada. This immigration
legislation will be created as a "Trojan Horse", and no one will be the wiser until it is too
late. http://www.cuttingedge.org/newsletters/newsalert.htm

Interview with a Former High Priest of Santeria who is now a Born Again Christian
Friday March 26, 2010

Guest: John Ramirez

Topic: In his book Out of the Devil's Caldron: A Journey from Darkness to Light, John
Ramirez tells the story of how he was trained to be the third-ranked high priest of a
satanic cult (Santeria) in New York City--casting powerful witchcraft spells and
controlling entire spiritual regions. But what started as a long spiral into the underworld
ended in a miraculous encounter with God that changed his life.

Joel Osteen blesses Houston's new (gay) mayor Annise Parker

Romans 1:26-28: For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even
their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And
likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust
one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving
in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they
did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate
mind, to do those things which are not convenient...Romans 1:32: "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.

Houston Mayor Annise Parker (right), holds hands with her partner Kathy Hubbard, left,
while bowing their heads during the prayer led by Houston evangelical megachurch
pastor Joel Osteen at her a public inauguration ceremony

Monday.                                 1-5-10--By David J. Phillip--AP--Annise
Parker, the newly-elected (who happens-to-be-lesbian) mayor of Houston was sworn in
Monday and the opening prayer was given by ... Rev. Joel Osteen.

Is your head spinning? Osteen heads the nation's most mega of evangelical non-
denominational megachurches, Lakewood Church in Houston where about 45,000
people cycle through a revamped sports stadium for services every weekend.

Osteen has been all over telling folks (Larry King, Whoopi Goldberg) for years that
homosexuality is not "God's best." I presume he means "God's best choice" because
otherwise I'm lost in the dropped or implied rest of the sentence. But "God's best" is
phrase Osteen never finishes so I'm just guessing.

Yet, Osteen hasn't joined the more strident wing of the religious right in damning gays.
Indeed, Osteen takes heat from other evangelicals who condemn him for not laying
down a line of fire about sin of any kind. That's not his style, says the preacher known
for his broad smile and sermons that God wants you to be happy. Osteen's best seller
was titled, Your Best Life Now.


Into the Arms of Rome Through Ancient Church Fathers and the Eucharist
by Roger Oakland--For John Henry Cardinal Newman, his conversion to the Catholic
Church took place after he began “meditating and reflecting” on the writings of the
Catholic Church fathers. This same story can be repeated thousands and thousands of
times now that we are in the 21st century.

Journeys Home edited by Marcus C. Grodi is a book that documents many of these
conversions. In the introduction of the book, we read the following:

Many of these men and women came from Protestant faiths.… From an early age they
had been taught all kinds of things about Catholics and their beliefs, sometimes
horrifying, repulsive things, that made them wonder whether Catholics could be saved.
Yet in each case, and in uniquely different ways, the unholy Spirit opened their hearts to
realize that much of what they had been taught about the Catholic Church was never

Sharon M. Mann, in a section of Journeys Home, provides personal testimony as one of
many who have made the journey home to Rome. She testified that the church fathers
played an important role in starting her on her journey to Catholicism. In her own words:

I started reading the early Church Fathers and realized that whatever they believed,
they surely were not Protestant. Catholic themes peppered the landscape of Church
history. I couldn’t deny it—nor could I accept it. Surely they were misguided! The
Church was floundering in the first centuries and tons of crazy ideas were floating
around—so I thought! When I began reading St. Augustine, however, I was stunned
how Catholic he was:

Augustine of Hippo (November 13, 354 – August 28, 430), Bishop of Hippo Regius,
also known as Augustine, St. Augustine, or St. Austin[3] was a Romanized Berber
philosopher and theologian. The start of Catholicism came around 312 AD via Roman
Emperor Constantine I, Constantine the Great the first pope. Constantine would
retain the title of pontifex maximus until his death, a title previous emperors bore as
heads of the pagan priesthood.

Augustine was born in the city of Thagaste,[9] , to a pagan father named Patricius and a
Catholic mother named Monica. He was educated in North Africa and resisted his
mother's pleas to become a Catholic. Living as a pagan intellectual, he took a
concubine, with whom he had a son, Adeodatus. Later he converted to Catholicism,
became a bishop....

In the Catholic Church and the Anglican Communion, he is a saint and pre-eminent
Doctor of the Church, and the patron of the Augustinian religious order; his memorial is
celebrated 28 August. Many Protestants, especially Calvinists, consider him to be one
of the theological fathers of Reformation teaching on salvation and divine grace. In the
Eastern Orthodox Church he is blessed, and his feast day is celebrated on 15 June.[10]
Among the Orthodox he is called Blessed Augustine, or St. Augustine the
He "established anew the ancient faith" (conditor antiquae rursum fidei), according to
his contemporary, Jerome.[4] In his early years he was heavily influenced by
Manichaeism: The syncretic, dualistic religious philosophy taught by the Persian
prophet Manes, combining elements of Zoroastrian, Christian, and Gnostic thought and
opposed by the imperial Roman government, Neo-Platonist philosophers, and orthodox

and afterwards by the Neo-Platonism of Plotinus,[5] but after his conversion and baptism
(387), he developed his own approach to philosophy and theology accommodating a
variety of methods and different perspectives.[6]

Saint Jerome (c. 347 – 30 September 420) was an Illyrian Catholic priest [1] and
apologist. He is best known for his new translation of the Bible into Latin, which has
since come to be called the Vulgate and his list of writings are extensive.[2] (See Jerome
and Early Church Fathers, Chapter 135). The Latin Vulgate was a translation that
Jerome had made, by the order of Pope Damasus

He is recognized by the Catholic Church as a saint and Doctor of the Church, and his
version of the Bible is still an important text in Catholicism. He is also recognized as a
saint by the Eastern Orthodox Church, where he is known as St. Jerome of Stridonium
or Blessed Jerome.[3]

Like many others who have read the writings of Augustine and other Catholic Church
fathers, Sharon wanted to know more about the Catholic tradition. She went to a chapel
where Eucharistic adoration was under way, and like many others, she had an
experience that changed her life. This is how Sharon described her encounter:

Finally, Saturday night, at the Eucharistic adoration, I saw 1000+ people kneeling on a
hard, concrete floor giving adoration to the Sacrament. I found tears streaming down my
face. I knelt, too, not knowing if this was real or whether the people were just crazy! But
every time the Sacrament came near me, my throat tightened and I couldn’t swallow. I
was being torn apart by my convictions. If the Lord was truly passing by, then I wanted
to adore and worship Him, but if He wasn’t, I was afraid to be idolatrous. The weekend
left a very powerful imprint on my heart, and I found myself running out of good
arguments to stay Protestant. My heart was longing to be Catholic and be restored to
the unity with all Christendom.3

The Eucharistic experience drew Sharon to Catholicism. Her journey began with an
interest in the Catholic Church fathers and led her right into a Catholic conversion. The
emerging church, through its emphasis on the teachings of the church fathers, based
upon a foundation that ancient-future faith is the answer to reaching the postmodern
generation, has the potential to open the same door that Sharon walked through. This
ancient-future path of worship is leading possibly millions into the arms of Rome.
Do you recall what Paul prophesied would happen to the early Christian church? He

Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over which the Holy Ghost
hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His
own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among
you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse
things, to draw away disciples after them. (Acts 20:28-30)

Paul actually warned the church that after he was gone, “grievous wolves” would enter
the church and hurt believers. A look at church history validates Paul’s prophetic
warning. He said it would happen, and then it happened. Numerous church leaders
emerged during the first to the third centuries. Scriptural principles were ignored, and
many followed the experiential teachings of men who claimed they had discovered new
and innovative methods to get in touch with God.

The reason why this happened is simple. We know God’s Word is light. When we
replace the Word of God with the words of man, which are considered to bring
enlightenment, we have a perfect formula for returning to darkness. The early mystics
added ideas to Christianity that cannot be found in the Bible—a recipe for spiritual
detriment. Jude also warned about the coming apostasy in the early church:

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this
condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and
denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. (Jude 4)

Rom 9:20-24: Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing
formed say to him that formed [it], Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter
power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another
unto dishonour? [What] if God, willing to shew [his] wrath, and to make his power
known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And
that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had
afore prepared unto glory, Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also
of the Gentiles?

Many emerging church leaders are suggesting the need to study the ideas and beliefs
of church leaders of the post-disciple era. They say if pastors and church leaders
reintroduce these teachings from the past, we will have spiritual transformation and
successful churches in the 21st century.

But wait a minute! If the church that emerged from the New Testament church was
based on ideas and beliefs foreign to Scripture, why would we want to emulate a
previous error? When doctrines of men replace the doctrine of Scripture, many are led
astray. It has happened in the past, and it is happening now. Following doctrine not
based on the Word of God always results in the undoing of faith. (from Faith Undone,
ch. 5, pp. 77-80).

How to Tell if Your Church is Becoming Emergent . . . Even If They Say It’s Not by
Roger Oakland

There are specific warning signs that are symptomatic that a church may be headed
down the emergent/contemplative road. In some cases a pastor may not be aware that
he is on this road nor understand where the road ends up.

Here are some of the warning signs:

Scripture is no longer the ultimate authority as the basis for the Christian faith.

The centrality of the gospel of Jesus Christ is being replaced by humanistic methods
promoting church growth and a social gospel.

More and more emphasis is being placed on building the kingdom of God now
(Dominionism) and less and less on the warnings of Scripture about the return of Jesus
Christ and a coming judgment in the future.

The teaching that Jesus Christ will rule and reign in a literal millennial period is
considered unbiblical and heretical (Amillennialism is a view in Christian end-times
theology named for its rejection of the theory that Jesus Christ will have a thousand-
year long, physical reign on the earth. In contrast, the amillennial view holds that the
thousand years mentioned in Revelation 20 is a symbolic number, not a literal
description; that the millennium has already begun and is identical with the current
church age, (or more rarely, that it ended with the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70 —
see Preterism).

The teaching that the church has taken the place of Israel and Israel has no prophetic
significance is often embraced (British Isrealism, etc.).

The teaching that the Book of Revelation does not refer to the future, but instead has
been already fulfilled in the past (Preterism).

An experiential mystical form of Christianity begins to be promoted as a method to
reach the postmodern generation (Emerging Chruch).

Ideas are promoted teaching that Christianity needs to be reinvented in order to provide
meaning for this generation.
The pastor may implement an idea called “ancient-future” or “vintage Christianity”
claiming that in order to take the church forward, we need to go back in church history
and find out what experiences were effective to get people to embrace Christianity
(Contemplative Christianity).

While the authority of the Word of God is undermined, images and sensual experiences
are promoted as the key to experiencing and knowing God.

These experiences include icons, candles, incense, liturgy, labyrinths, prayer stations,
contemplative prayer, experiencing the sacraments, particularly the sacrament of the

The following is excerpted from David Cloud's book CONTEMPLATIVE
Contemplative mysticism, which originated with Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox
monasticism, is permeating every branch of Christianity today, including the Southern
Baptist Convention. In this book we document the fact that Catholic mysticism leads
inevitably to a broadminded ecumenical philosophy and to the adoption of heresies. For
many, this path has led to interfaith dialogue, Buddhism, Hinduism, universalism,
pantheism, panentheism, even goddess theology. One chapter is dedicated to exposing
the heresies of Richard Foster: “Evangelicalism’s Mystical Sparkplug.” We describe the
major contemplative practices, such as centering prayer, visualizing prayer, Jesus
Prayer, Lectio Divina, and the Labyrinth. We look at the history of Roman Catholic
Monasticism, beginning with the Desert Fathers and the Church Fathers, and document
the heresies associated with it, such as its sacramental gospel, rejection of the Bible as
sole authority, veneration of Mary, purgatory, celibacy, asceticism, allegorical
interpretation of Scripture, and moral corruption.

We examine the errors of contemplative mysticism, such as downplaying the centrality
of the Bible, ignoring the fact that multitudes of professing Christians are not born again,
exchanging the God of the Bible for a blind idol, ignoring the Bible’s warnings against
associating with heresy and paganism, and downplaying the danger of spiritual
delusion. In the Biographical Catalog of Contemplative Mystics we look at the lives and
beliefs of 60 of the major figures in the contemplative movement, including Benedict of
Nursia, Bernard of Clairvaux, Brother Lawrence, Catherine of Genoa, Catherine of
Siena, Dominic, Meister Eckhart, Francis of Assisi, Madame Guyon, Hildegard of
Bingen, Ignatius of Loyola, John of the Cross, Julian of Norwich, Thomas Keating,
Thomas a Kempis, Brennan Manning, Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, Basil
Pennington, John Michael Talbot, Teresa of Avila, Teresa of Lisieux, and Dallas Willard.

There seems to be a strong emphasis on ecumenism indicating that a bridge is being
established that leads in the direction of unity with the Roman Catholic Church.

Some evangelical Protestant leaders are saying that the Reformation went too far. They
are reexamining the claims of the “church fathers” saying that communion is more than
a symbol and that Jesus actually becomes present in the wafer at communion.

There will be a growing trend towards an ecumenical unity for the cause of world peace
claiming the validity of other religions and that there are many ways to God.

Members of churches who question or resist the new changes that the pastor is
implementing are reprimanded and usually asked to leave.

LTRP Note: In addition to the signs above, and as Roger points out in his book Faith
Undone, if a church is incorporating the materials of Purpose Driven or/and Willow
Creek, then they are putting themselves at risk of becoming emerging. Willow Creek
and Rick Warren are two of the strongest advocates for emerging/contemplative

Will CERN Stargate Reveal Messages From Another Universe?
The Large Hadron Collider set a new record for the creation of energetic particle beams
this past week. The particle accelerator, which surpassed Fermilab’s Tevatron in
December, smashed its own record, charging particles to 3.48 trillion electron volts, or
three times the energy of any beam ever created by human beings and just under half
the LHC’s proposed maximum capabilities. “Getting the beams to 3.5 TeV is testimony
to the soundness of the LHC’s overall design, and the improvements we’ve made since
the breakdown in September 2008,” said CERN’s Director for Accelerators and
Technology Steve Myers in a press release. “And it’s a great credit to the patience and
dedication of the LHC team.” At full throttle, the LHC could provide scientists with new
insights into the nature of mass, dark matter and the origins of the universe.

Boy Scouts Sex Abuse Coverup
The Boy Scouts of America has long kept an extensive archive of secret documents that
chronicle the sexual abuse of young boys by Scout leaders over the years. The
"perversion files," a nickname the Boy Scouts are said to have used for the documents,
have rarely been seen by the public, but that could all change in the coming weeks in an
Oregon courtroom. The lawyer for a man who was molested in the 1980s by a Scout
leader has obtained about 1,000 Boy Scouts sex files and is expected to release some
of them at a trial that began Wednesday. The lawyer says the files show how the Boy
Scouts have covered up abuse for decades. On Friday, testimony from a bishop for the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints responsible for a Scout troop of church
members suggested the Scouts never provided training about spotting abuse or
preventing it. The trial is significant because the files could offer a rare window into how
the Boy Scouts have responded to sex abuse by Scout leaders. The only other time the
documents are believed to have been presented at a trial was in the 1980s in Virginia.
At the start of the Oregon trial, attorney Kelly Clark recited the Boy Scout oath and the
promise to obey Scout law to be "trustworthy." Then he presented six boxes of
documents that he said will show "how the Boy Scouts of America broke that oath."

He is NOT the Messiah... he’s an economist from Golders Green

25 Mar 2010--A BEWILDERED British economist has been hailed as a MESSIAH by a
cult. Raj Patel, 37, was bombarded with emails from followers of Share International
after he gave a television interview in the US.

Coincidence ... Raj Patel in a TV interview echoed the scene in Monty Python's Life Of
Brian - in which Brian was mistaken for the saviour - Raj said: "I'm not the messiah... I'm
just an economics expert!"

The confusion began after Raj, from Golders Green, North London, appeared on TV in
January to plug his book on the global financial crisis, The Value Of Nothing.

Two days later, Share International founder Benjamin Creme, 87, announced the
chosen one his cult calls "Maitreya" had arrived, telling followers: "Maitreya recently
gave his first interview in America.

Raj, who was raised a Hindu, said: "I started getting emails saying 'Are you the world

Although Raj swiftly rejected his unholy credentials, two devotees from Detroit flew
2,400 miles to meet him at a book signing in his current US home town, San Francisco.
Raj said: "They were really nice, straightforward people. They said they thought I was
the Maitreya. They also said I had appeared in their dreams.
"I said, 'I'm really flattered you came all the way here, but it breaks my heart you spent
all this money to meet someone who isn't who you think he is.'" Meanwhile Raj has had
to remove contact details from his website and refuses to talk further about the
Maitreya. He said: "It frustrates me it might disappoint those looking for Maitreya that, in
fact, I'm just an ordinary bloke."

In India, 1,000 attacks in 500 days
Baptist Press
Monday, March 22, 2010
NEW DELHI (BP)--Minority Christians in India's southern state of Karnataka are under
an unprecedented wave of persecution, having faced more than 1,000 attacks in 500
days, according to an independent investigation by a former senior judge on the
Karnataka High Court.

The spate began on Sept. 14, 2008, when at least 12 churches were attacked in one
day in the city of Mangalore, said Justice Michael Saldanha, who formerly served on the
Karnataka court.

"On Jan. 26 -- the day we celebrated India's Republic Day -- Karnataka's 1,000th attack
took place in Mysore city," Saldanha told Compass Direct News, saying the figure is
based on reports from faith-based organizations. There are just over 1 million Christians
among Karnataka's 52 million people.

"Attacks are taking place every day," said Saldanha, chairperson of the local
Transparency International chapter.

Medicating The Military
At least one in six service members is on some form of psychiatric drug. And many
troops are taking more than one kind, mixing several pills in daily “cocktails” — for
example, an antidepressant with an antipsychotic to prevent nightmares, plus an anti-
epileptic to reduce headaches — despite minimal clinical research testing such
combinations. The drugs come with serious side effects: They can impair motor skills,
reduce reaction times and generally make a war fighter less effective. Some double the
risk for suicide, prompting doctors — and Congress — to question whether these drugs
are connected to the rising rate of military suicides. “It’s really a large-scale experiment.
We are experimenting with changing people’s cognition and behavior,” said Dr. Grace
Jackson, a former Navy psychiatrist. A Military Times investigation of electronic records
obtained from the Defense Logistics Agency shows DLA spent $1.1 billion on common
psychiatric and pain medications from 2001 to 2009. It also shows that use of
psychiatric medications has increased dramatically — about 76 percent overall, with
some drug types more than doubling — since the start of the current wars.

Help Us Send Bibles to Prisoners!

A year or so ago, we made an appeal to you friends to help us in sending free Bibles to
those in prison. The Lord touched your hearts and supplied this need. We are now
running close to the end of these funds and ask you to see what the Lord might lead
you to send us to help once again. We do not want to stop sending our Defined King
James Bibles free to these men in prison who request them. Can you help us send our
Defined King James Bibles to prisoners? Sometimes our Bible For Today ministry
receives 3 to 6 requests daily for Bibles. These are prisoners (both men and women)
who write us telling us they have 5, 10, 15 years or more to serve in their prison. Many
claim that they are born-again Christians whose lives have been torn apart by some
unlawful deed they had done to get them into the prison. They have seen that some of
their fellow prisoners have one of our Bibles to comfort them and to allow them to grow
stronger in the Lord. They use them in their Bible study groups. Some of the prisoners
are not saved, but wish to have our Bible to seek to find the Lord Jesus Christ as their
Saviour. Some prisoners are getting out in a few days, weeks, or months and want our
Bible to take with them as they seek to begin a new life in the “outside.” If you feel led of
the Lord to help us in this cause in this Bible-sending ministry you can do it in one of
three ways:
1. Please go to our website at www.BibleForToday.org and click on the ONLINE
DONATIONS button at the top of the page and put in the amount of the gift you would
like to send us.
2. Please send your gift to THE BIBLE FOR TODAY, 900 Park Avenue, Collingswood,
New Jersey 08108. Mark it PRISONERS' BIBLE FUND. Thank you.
3. Please call us at 856-854-4452 with your credit card and tell us how much you can
help us with this important assistance to those in prison As I think of the Words of the
Lord Jesus Christ about those “in prison,” I am deeply touched. He said:

Matthew 25:35-40 "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye
gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I
was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the
righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or
thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or
naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto
thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch
as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Can you help us “come unto” these men and women who are “in prison” with our King
James Bible and thus “come unto” the Lord Jesus Christ Himself? Please pray for this
ministry, regardless of your ability to give us your financial help at this time.

Yours For God’s Words,

" All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and
shall glorify thy name". Psa 86:9

What a glorious day that will be; Maybe Jesus will come TODAY. A-MEN. Things
have drastically changed in Ukraine. Last month the previous President, Victor
Yushchenko, has been replaced with a former 2 time convicted Felon and close
friend of Putin in Russia. Victor Yanukovych, the new President vowed in his bid
for the high office, that if elected he would ;
1. " Give official authority to the Orthodox Church"- which means they will only
recognized one Church and will forbid personal Missionary Evangelistic Work.
Which would include Fundamental Baptist Church building & the Orphant
2. "Children will not be permitted to attend Sunday School or Church unless they
have a Legalized Document from their parents" . Which means no more Sunday
School & Youth Meetings.

One month after elections, Yanukovych has placed himself in charge of nearly
everything, according to the news. - Does this sound like "OBAMA"? The ( Kiev
Post ) reported on March 11, 2010 that ; "Goodbye, gridlock government.
Hello, steamroller government. Viktor Yanukovych needed little more than two
weeks in power to consolidate control over parliament, get his top choice as
prime minister and to assemble a new Cabinet of Ministers - albeit in a manner
critics called unconstitutional. There's nary an oppositionist in the bunch, which
looks like a reunion of aides from former President Leonid Kuchma's corrupt,
authoritarian reign from 1994-2005."

What Does This Mean? At present, Missionary Work is continuing & Souls are
being Saved. Our workers are going regularly to Minister to some 1700 Orphans
in 12 different homes & doing their Church work, witnessing, passing out tracks
& Soul Winning. However, this could be hindered, & all together stopped if the
new President Does what he says. So please pray much for Ukraine that his
promises will never mature and that their freedoms will continue. Explanation of
our Prayer Letter Some have asked, if we are getting their support. The answer is
yes. If you receive our Prayer Letter, that means we are getting your support. We only
send the letter to those who support ABM.

Special Thanks We want you to know that we are most grateful, & we want to thank
you from the bottom of our Heart. Recently we have spoken in several small
churches. Most are not able to take on new Missionaries. So we need your
continued support & Prayers. Our workers in Ukraine send their most grateful
gratitude also.

Donations regardless of size are always welcome and appreciated.
