The Collapse Of Western Morality
By Paul Craig Roberts

…permit me to acknowledge that the US dropped nuclear bombs on two Japanese cities, fire-bombed Tokyo, that Great Britain and the US fire-bombed Dresden and a number of other German cities, expending more destructive force, according to some historians, against the civilian German population than against the German armies, that President Grant and his Civil War war criminals, Generals Sherman and Sheridan, committed genocide against the Plains Indians, that the US today enables Israel’s genocidal policies against the Palestinians, policies that one Israeli official has compared to 19th century US genocidal policies against the American Indians, that the US in the new 21st century invaded Iraq and Afghanistan on contrived pretenses, murdering countless numbers of civilians, and that British prime minister Tony Blair lent the British army to his American masters, as did other NATO countries, all of whom find themselves committing war crimes under the Nuremberg standard in lands in which they have no national interests, but for which they receive an American pay check.

I don’t mean these few examples to be exhaustive. I know the list goes on and on. Still, despite the long list of horrors, moral degradation is reaching new lows. The US now routinely tortures prisoners, despite its strict illegality under US and international law, and a recent poll shows that the percentage of Americans who approve of torture is rising. Indeed, it is quite high, though still just below a majority.

And we have what appears to be a new thrill: American soldiers using the cover of war to murder civilians. Recently American troops were arrested for murdering Afghan civilians for fun and collecting trophies such as fingers and skulls. …

The US government, a font of imperial hubris [def. – excessive pride or self-confidence; arrogance], does not believe that any act it commits, no matter how vile, can possibly be a war crime. One million dead Iraqis, a ruined country, and four million displaced Iraqis are all justified, because the “threatened” US Superpower had to protect itself from nonexistent weapons of mass destruction that the US government knew for a fact were not in Iraq and could not have been a threat to the US if they were in Iraq. …

Some sports teams now have a win-at-all-cost attitude that involves plans to injure the star players of the opposing teams. …

Americans will be the first people sent straight to Hell while thinking that they are the salt of the earth. The Americans have even devised a title for themselves to rival that of the Israelis’ self-designation as “God’s Chosen People.” The Americans call themselves “the indispensable people.”

Michael Galiga: How to get your life and your business unstuck

From: Sid Roth

This Week’s Guest
Michael Galiga

April 19-25, 2010

Michael Galiga has received supernatural revelation on how anyone, whether a corporation or single individual, can live a life of victory and success. In the tumult of your day-to-day life, you can have the power to defeat all your fears and conquer the obstacles you face. You Can Win Every Battle! Watch this special interview as Michael gives you keys to begin living a life of victory today!

Watch the video here
The radio interviews are here. And I really like this segment (day 2), in which he talks about journaling what God says, and his breakthrough through worshiping, which reminds me of what happened to Terry Law:

“If you want to go someplace you’ve never been you have to do things you’ve never done.”

From: TV show transcript

SID: Some of the principles that you teach on, I mean, each one is a key and you put an amazing warranty, if you will, for major corporations.

MIKE: Yes.

SID: What do you challenge them with?

MIKE: Yes. And I really want somebody to challenge me on this. I dare people. It’s called the corporate challenge. Nobody has taken me up on this yet, but I know they will. The corporate challenge is as if there is large American corporation that is generally widely known and it’s dying, and we can think of some off the top of our heads, but we won’t name names. But if one of those companies will do what I wrote about in this book and they agree to do that I will go at my own expense to their headquarters and walk them through this process with a guarantee that their company will be revived.

SID: Michael, you talk about curses here. And curses pass on from generation to generation, to generation. And you talk about some of the companies, General Motors and Ford. And there was a story about that you talk about, about a car that I was not familiar with called the Tucker Torpedo. What was that?

MIKE: Yeah. The Tucker Torpedo was created by a man that used to work for one of the big three automobile companies, and it was really a breakthrough, highly innovative, technologically advanced automobile. And we don’t know, Sid, whether, you know, some of these things that were said about what maybe some of the big three did to Mr. Tucker did are true or they’re not true. The point is that every person in every company has baggage, things they’ve done wrong, things they’ve said wrong; things they’ve thought wrong. And when that happens it creates a break in their prosperity. And so if you–

SID: So let’s assume that what Tucker said was true. What did he say?

MIKE: Basically, that his company was poised to take a significant market share from the current automobile manufactures, Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, and they didn’t want that to happen. So if that’s true, that would have hurt them and they, through political connections and lawsuits and different things, they basically strung him out and diverted his attention from his company into the lawsuits and the political maneuvering and testifying in Congress. And by the time he could get back to looking at his business, his company was bankrupt.

SID: Well it certainly makes logical sense to me. So assuming that was true and if it is true, his company was bankrupt. It is true that he had a superior vehicle. So it kind of rings a bell of truth to me. So assuming that’s true, what would someone like Ford or General Motors have to do to get that cloud off of them?

MIKE: Well, you know S[id], I’m a businessman. I’m not a prophet. I’m not a preacher. I didn’t go to seminary. I’m strictly involved in making large dollar decisions and I cannot afford a mistake. Okay. I want to clarify that. But with a company like General Motors, assume this was true, and I can’t prove it, but if it was true or something like it was true and there could be hundreds, if not thousands of these sorts of things that have to be dealt with. And when they’re dealt with and you go basically to your Maker and say, “Hey, I’m sorry we did that.” Well I didn’t do it. The guys that ran the company 50 years ago did it, but still, I’m responsible. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. We’re turning away from that. Okay. We admit our guilt. We’re gonna move on. At that point those curses then are broken and the prosperity can flow. There’s a spirit called lack. It’s very real. I’ve experienced it, Sid. I’ve been on both sides of these deals. And so the spirit of lack has, because you’ve opened a door, you’ve opened that door of that curse because you’ve done something wrong that the spirit of lack comes in and chokes you. It chokes off your finances. It hurts retirees and pensions, and health benefits. All those things melt down. Everything goes wrong until that core thing is fixed.

Asbury Revival, 1970: “Dr. Kinlaw, I am a liar. Now what do I do?”

Clarifying My Perspective on Divorce and 'Marriage': The Role of the Holy Spirit

[Updated 2/25/13]
I would like to add to what I said in My Theory on Divorce and ‘Marriage’: It’s Time to Get Out of UNBIBLICAL ‘Marriages.’ — “God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterers.” We must all be clean!
Jesus was very straightforward in His stand on marriage and divorce in Matthew 5, as I show in the above article. But what about the gray areas, the rare situations that don’t totally fit within what Jesus said?
HUGE QUALIFIER: whom we date and marry is one of the most emotional issues we may ever have, if not the most. It’s so easy to hear the voice of the enemy leading us to do sinful things if we’ve given demons a place and we aren’t totally, 100% submitted to God’s will. Jesus gave us the standard in Mt. 5. If we hear an exception that He didn’t give we better be absolutely sure it was the Holy Spirit and not an impostor.  The most extreme carefulness needs to be applied. Most ‘Christians’ are currently not at that level of submission to the Holy Spirit. There should only be One Voice, and we all need to be 100% willing to do whatever God is leading us to do regarding whom to marry. As I said in the previous article, if James says we must be submitted to God’s will as to where to live, surely whom we intimately spend the rest of our lives with is more important…. Many have lost their anointing and are in a state of losing their salvation because they weren’t careful enough. We must be Spirit-led, not feelings-led.
Jesus told the disciples there were many more things He would tell them, but they couldn’t bear to hear them all at that time, so He would send the comforter, the Holy Spirit Whom will lead us into all truth. The Bible isn’t supposed to have specific answers for everything. We’re supposed to be led by the Holy Spirit. “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God” (Romans 8:14). “This is the normal Christian life,” I believe I just heard. This certainly is true. See: A Call to Intimacy: The Holy Spirit in John’s Gospel & Epistles, by Jeff Fenske. The fact that this isn’t true in most Christians’ lives today just shows how far off course we are from the true gospel — and why ‘churches’ and countries are in such a mess.
Jesus explained to the disciples in John 14:

14:16 I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, that he may be with you forever,– 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world can’t receive; for it doesn’t see him, neither knows him. You know him, for he lives with you, and will be in you.

18 I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you.

16:12 “I have yet many things to tell you, but you can’t bear them now. 13 However when he, the Spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all truth, for he will not speak from himself; but whatever he hears, he will speak.

John continues in 1 John:

20 You have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all have knowledge.

27 As for you, the anointing which you received from him remains in you, and you don’t need for anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, you will remain in him.

If we’re abiding in Him, the Holy Spirit, He will then teach us concerning all things, especially regarding major issues like whom we should marry.
When we leave the Holy Spirit and do our own thing, that’s when we get into trouble. We should always make sure we have entered into our rest, the place where we are right with God and people — enjoying the peace of God that is beyond all understanding.
When pastors and the people think we can be Christians without remaining in Him no wonder the church is in such disarray. We were never meant to be led by the Bible alone.
The role of the Holy Spirit is downplayed, largely because of the old covenant tithing teaching (which pastors push so they get money even if the Holy Spirit isn’t leading people to give to them). Following the Bible alone, sola scriptura has been the emphasis. And trying to follow the written word without abiding in the Spirit of truth “is a recipe for chaos.” And that’s what we have.
The result is what Luther came to believe — that we can’t really do what Jesus said we must do. The Sermon on the Mount is just an ideal. We’re sinners saved by grace. So ‘don’t worry about what we do,’  ‘all we have to do is believe’ completely fails God’s parameters.
When willfully sinning, knowingly unclean believers stand before Jesus, He’ll say “depart from me, workers of iniquity.” Like Isaiah, seeing the Holy God while in his sin: “Woe is me!” And then it will be too late.

"Abbott Loop must be ONE." Let's escape the deception and go onto unity!

I’ve desired to write this post ever since I heard this message, but I wanted to post the ALCC-goals photo first. I’m tired of being called ‘divisive’ when I’ve been calling for unity all along. And we can only be unified when we realize that loving each other as much as we love ourselves isn’t an option if we are to be going-to-heaven, real Christians. And this has not been done.
Do we mean this or not? Many are waiting:

The only way I see John-17 unity happening (short of a total collapse of our nation) is for us to get certain doctrines right, especially our salvation doctrine, which
This is why who goes to heaven is such a big key. It’s not only about where we spend eternity, but it’s about getting real Christianity happening now, which I believe will bring about the Third Great Awakening happening now — here in Anchorage? Why not? We can do it!

What I’m addressing here was said publicly (it’s even online at abbottloop.org… and as a podcast), so I’m responding publicly. We can’t let our egos get in the way. This is about life and death. This is the greatest deception that I’m convinced is the fundamental reason for the fall of America, let alone the horrendous stats of such a tiny percentage of ‘Christians’ actually going to heaven. See How Many Will Be in Heaven? How Many Find the WAY? Only 1 in 40 — 2.5%?!!
Pastor Joshua Tanner said this in his Sunday message, 7/18/10, entitled: Collossians 2:1-10 “United in Him”:

“Verse 4 [of Col. 2]: ‘Now this I say lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words.’

You know that I really think deception is the key thing that the Devil wants to bring into the church, because he knows that Jesus has got your heart.

I think [it’s] virtually impossible to deceive someone so much that they lose their salvation. This is my personal opinion.” (And Josh has taught this before. See my link, below.)

The truth is that we don’t have to wonder about what the Bible says. The Bible specifically teaches that it’s easy to lose ones salvation. And Paul directly answers this question in Galatians:

7 Don’t be deceived. God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his own flesh [5:19-21] will from the flesh reap corruption. But he who sows to the Spirit [5:16-18, 22-24] will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

Here is the full text, which includes Paul’s most complete lists of who goes to heaven and who doesn’t, and most Christians are clearly not fully in the who-goes-to-heaven list, including most pastors.

16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you won’t fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, that you may not do the things that you desire. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lustfulness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, strife, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, divisions, heresies, 21 envyings, murders, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these; of which I forewarn you, even as I also forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts.

25 If we live by the Spirit, let’s also walk by the Spirit. 26 Let’s not become conceited, provoking one another, and envying one another.

1 Brothers, even if a man is caught in some fault, you who are spiritual must restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; looking to yourself so that you also aren’t tempted. 2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if a man thinks himself to be something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But let each man test his own work, and then he will take pride in himself and not in his neighbor. 5 For each man will bear his own burden.

6 But let him who is taught in the word share all good things with him who teaches. 7 Don’t be deceived. God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his own flesh [5:19-21] will from the flesh reap corruption. But he who sows to the Spirit [5:16-18, 22-24] will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 Let us not be weary in doing good, for we will reap in due season, if we don’t give up.

10 So then, as we have opportunity, let’s do what is good toward all men, and especially toward those who are of the household of the faith.

It’s crucial that we come to an understanding about what the Bible really teaches. Then we can become ONE in Him. “Then the world will know” (Jesus in John 17) — and we will be so happy!!!
We can lead the world into revival!

Joe Schimmel: The Great Deception—Once Saved, Always Saved

The Neutered Gospel — With hammer and chisel in hand we began to sculpt our new and improved deity — always smiling — and no matter what you do, God is holding onto you so tightly that you’ll never be able to get away

“Preachersplay the therapist, speaking soothing words, in a soothing tone, ensuring anyone within earshot that everything’s going to be alright, that God has mellowed over the centuries, and as long as they ‘bring the tithe into the storehouse’ God will overlook everything else.


[If the name of the author sounds familiar, Michael Boldea was Dumitru Duduman’s interpreter: Dumitru Duduman: Wake Up America.]
This article is an excellent example of how we need prophetic people to help bring us back into reality, for the American ‘church’ really has neutered God in their thinking and teaching
We all need each other!
For me personally, I can truly say this “farce of a faith” (Boldeas’ term) that the American Gospel has turned into no longer even feels partly right. It’s witchcraft, because: it’s rebellion, which the Bible says is witchcraft, and because it’s based on false doctrines, doctrines of demons.
It also feels so awful because we can look at the destruction it has left in its wake! Look at what we’ve turned into, a nation full of murderers. Even the church is calling for, and not repenting for preemptive wars that have killed many hundreds of thousands.
And if we could only see the actual faces of those who have died and are now in hell, thinking they were saved because they prayed this one prayer. This deception is serious!!! And we’re influencing the whole world with this muck.
It also doesn’t feel right when God is no longer to be feared, when we’re told He won’t hold us accountable for willful sinning/rebellion, according to today’s gospel.
It doesn’t feel right, and it isn’t right now that the American ‘church’ has removed part of the nature of God to fulfill our lusts without fear of punishment.
We’ve made God trendy, a bud who hangs with us no matter what we do, whom we lust at, whom we curse or lie to, whom we hate. “Oh, they deserve it….” And we have become little gods, taking our own revenge — not really caring about what the Bible really says. God is a latte. He tastes good; he makes us feel good. “With hammer and chisel in hand we began to sculpt our new and improved deity.”
We make a mockery of God when God no longer needs to be sought and honored. We put ourselves as high as Him when we think we can be lord of our own lives, not needing to submit to the One Who’ll never let go no matter what we do — so the song says — but the Bible does not, as I’ve shown over and over in this blog. The Bible is so clear. How can we miss it: Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God?
I wonder more and more if ‘Christians’ even care about what the Bible really says. They like this new god.
Many pastors teach that the fear of God isn’t fear but respect. But can we on earth really respect Him if we don’t fear what He will do to us if we don’t respect Him? How can we respect a God who will not judge ‘Christians’ who willfully lust after your daughters (thinking “God will never let go”), who James-3-curse those of us who rightfully say they’re not qualified to lead until they get right with those they’ve hurt. And then they lie and hate. But they’ll all go to heaven because they said this little prayer that they really meant. They call themselves ‘Christians’ and ‘men of God,’ yet they’re hearts are dark, which they mask with a smile.
And God won’t judge them, just take away some of their rewards?? Then where is justice? Just say this little prayer….
We don’t need to get right with God to save this nation from external or internal collapse. We just need to elect politicians who will send our men and women to kill the Muslims over there, whom our Republican leaders said took down the towers. [see my 9/11 Truth posts at ToBeFree to find out the truth]
So will kill over a million because of 3,000. Sounds like revenge to me. But abortion is murder. Abortion is so bad, but killing hundreds of thousands of people who didn’t do anything to us is being patriotic. Abortion is murder, but the victims will not go to hell. Most of those we bomb from the sky are now in hell. And whose hands are stained with their blood?
But we don’t need to repent. Our ‘God’ is our friend no matter what. We don’t have to apologize for being doofs, unfeeling, unloving, unkind, selfish and stuffed Americans.
But God is not mocked. What we reap we will sow. And Paul is writing to Christians about eternal life, you all — Galatians 5 and 6.
This is no joke. We need to get on our faces. How in the world do we think we can get away with this when we see Jesus face to face? Not only do we openly support preemptive wars, pushing for our 3rd one now (none of which have proven to be justified), but these are fought in Jesus’ name, turning the world against US and Jesus. They know these wars are not just, whether ‘Christians’ do or not.
It does really seem like the core problem in the ‘church,’ today is doctrine. And this clearly includes the doctrine of who God is. Satan has succeeded in his once-saved-always-saved deception by inspiring ‘Christian leaders’ to gut the Word of God, throwing out the Scriptures that tell the truth about who really goes to heaven and who really are God’s children.
Doctrine really is the key.

The Neutered Gospel

I will say the following plainly, because I could think of no other way of saying it. At the risk of bringing the readership of this blog to zero, at the risk of having to wade through dozens of less than friendly e-mails, the following must be stated, and clearly so.

If the gospel messages you’ve been hearing lo’ these many years have never once made you feel uncomfortable then you’ve never really heard the true gospel message. If the gospel messages you’ve been hearing lo’ these many years have never once challenged you then you’ve never really heard the true gospel message. If the gospel messages you’ve been hearing lo’ these many years haven’t accentuated Christ and the cross in perpetuity then you’ve never really heard the true gospel message. If the gospel messages you’ve been hearing lo’ these many years have never once stirred you to repentance, prompted inward introspection, humbled you, caused you to weep and truly see the enormity of your sin, then you’ve never really heard the true gospel message, but a neutered version wherein God is always smiling, the sun is always shining, the birds are always chirping and no matter what you do, God’s holding onto you so tight that you’ll never be able to get away.

In this brave new world of ours, pastors have redefined their roles and become life coaches, no longer preaching a crucified Christ, but rather playing the part of guidance counselor to scores of individuals that can be likened to overactive, petulant, and overgrown children who will not accept being accountable to anyone, be they God or man.

Preachers too have redefined their roles and rather than be concerned about the spiritual wellbeing of those to whom they are ministering they play the therapist, speaking soothing words, in a soothing tone, ensuring anyone within earshot that everything’s going to be alright, that God has mellowed over the centuries, and as long as they ‘bring the tithe into the storehouse’ God will overlook everything else.

It is an understatement when I say that there is enough blame to go around for the farce of a faith many are presenting, living and promulgating today, and the sheep are just as much to blame as the shepherds. In the end these so called shepherds are just giving the people what they wanted aren’t they?

If you preach the truth, if you preach the unadulterated Word of God, wherever you happen to be, you are bound to hear those famous words that seem to be on everyone’s lips nowadays: ‘That’s not the god I serve!’

I’ve heard it more times than I would like to recall, and no matter how often I hear it, it’s still shocking.

‘I don’t like your god, your god is mean, that’s not the god I serve.’

‘But all I did was read from His book’, I would retort, ‘all I did was read from the Bible!’

If you hear the truth being preached, if someone is reading out of the Bible and in your heart you say ‘that’s not the god I serve’, then may I humbly submit to you that you are not serving the true God, but a god of your own making and imagining. A god that you have fashioned in your heart who requires no submission, who requires no obedience, who requires no sacrifice on your part, but is more than happy to let you win the lotto time and again.

It is because we have refashioned and remade God in our own image that the neutered gospel is so widely accepted and received. It is because we didn’t like what God had to say that we chose rebellion rather than submission, and with hammer and chisel in hand we began to sculpt our new and improved deity.

Like the prophets of Baal however, we will know the true impotence of the gods we’ve fashioned when we need them most. When we see the gods of our own making for what they truly are, nothing more than mists and vanities, it will be too late, and though we might cut ourselves and bleed, though we might cry out to the heavens for a sign, these deities we so revel in today, these gods we so honor and worship will remain silent as the empty tomb from which the Christ, the Son of the one true God walked out of two millennia ago.

With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.

Valedictorian explains why false doctrines still rule: "We are all expected to be the same. We are trained to ace every standardized test, and those who deviate and see light through a different lens are worthless… and therefore viewed with contempt"

Valedictorian Erica Goldson was speaking of public education, but isn’t this true within Chrisendom as well?

Between these cinderblock walls, we are all expected to be the same. We are trained to ace every standardized test, and those who deviate and see light through a different lens are worthless to the scheme of public education, and therefore viewed with contempt.

“Viewed with contempt” often means getting James-3 cursed. Dissenters from the established norm are pressured to conform. And the more we hold our ground, the more evil is wished upon us — those of us who won’t believe something just because we’re told to.
And that’s why revival-killing, false doctrine prevails to at least some degree in every single church that I know of. Education (and preaching) is too often indoctrination, instead of  encouragement for us to seek God so we can all come to the knowledge of the truth.
And I can’t tell you how much pressure was put on me to adhere to the norm. And much of this is through the reverse-Christian, James-3 curses (‘prayers’): Dennis Cramer: “Most ‘Christians’ curse for the purpose of retaliation and vindication … ‘Christian’ leaders are even more vulnerable”, which is not just for retaliation and vindication, but also to control, to bring those who question into line.
The old wineskins can only be replaced by the new wineskins (that can hold the new wine without bursting) when the church is encouraged to seek the One who has promised to lead us into all truth. And then when we find that truth, let’s embrace it and those who have persevered to find it.
Erica also said this:

We are thinkers, dreamers, explorers, artists, writers, engineers. We are anything we want to be – but only if we have an educational system that supports us rather than holds us down. A tree can grow, but only if its roots are given a healthy foundation.

Thank God for the rare teachers who had the courage and love to encourage us even when they saw us thinking outside of the box! I thank God for Jerry W., in particular. He encouraged and helped equip me no matter what.
Leaders should be power-under, not power-over, encouraging everyone to draw near to God so God can draw near to us.
Revival will only come when the whole body is functioning together. Most pastors and teachers like to think their doctrine is totally sound. Then why isn’t revival happening — real Christianity according to the Scriptures I have listed in my header?
Full revival isn’t happening because our doctrines aren’t yet cisterns that are sound enough to be able to hold water. Our doctrines still have huge holes in them.
Churches should create a nurturing atmosphere in which those who question will be appreciated and seen as vital to real Christianity happening — instead of acting like we’ve already arrived.
We need each other, even the parts that seem ‘divisive,’ when in reality we just refuse to accept the sub-biblical goals that keep the church from really being the church.
We’ll know when we’ve arrived when God arrives to where we are all one with each other, resting in Him. Then the world will know (John 17)!
Let’s break out of the box and embrace what is true, loving the Lord, our God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength, and our neighbors (even the ‘renegades’ who just happen to be wired differently for a really good reason) as much as we love ourselves.

Coxsackie-Athens Valedictorian Speech 2010

Here I Stand
Erica Goldson

…the dilemma I’ve faced within the American education system. We are so focused on a goal, whether it be passing a test, or graduating as first in the class. However, in this way, we do not really learn. We do whatever it takes to achieve our original objective.

Some of you may be thinking, “Well, if you pass a test, or become valedictorian, didn’t you learn something? Well, yes, you learned something, but not all that you could have. Perhaps, you only learned how to memorize names, places, and dates to later on forget in order to clear your mind for the next test. School is not all that it can be. Right now, it is a place for most people to determine that their goal is to get out as soon as possible.

I am now accomplishing that goal. I am graduating. I should look at this as a positive experience, especially being at the top of my class. However, in retrospect, I cannot say that I am any more intelligent than my peers. I can attest that I am only the best at doing what I am told and working the system. Yet, here I stand, and I am supposed to be proud that I have completed this period of indoctrination. I will leave in the fall to go on to the next phase expected of me, in order to receive a paper document that certifies that I am capable of work. But I contest that I am a human being, a thinker, an adventurer – not a worker. A worker is someone who is trapped within repetition – a slave of the system set up before him. But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave. I did what I was told to the extreme. While others sat in class and doodled to later become great artists, I sat in class to take notes and become a great test-taker. While others would come to class without their homework done because they were reading about an interest of theirs, I never missed an assignment. While others were creating music and writing lyrics, I decided to do extra credit, even though I never needed it. So, I wonder, why did I even want this position? Sure, I earned it, but what will come of it? When I leave educational institutionalism, will I be successful or forever lost? I have no clue about what I want to do with my life; I have no interests because I saw every subject of study as work, and I excelled at every subject just for the purpose of excelling, not learning. And quite frankly, now I’m scared. …

Between these cinderblock walls, we are all expected to be the same. We are trained to ace every standardized test, and those who deviate and see light through a different lens are worthless to the scheme of public education, and therefore viewed with contempt.

H. L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury for April 1924 that the aim of public education is not

    • to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. … Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim … is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States. (Gatto)

To illustrate this idea, doesn’t it perturb you to learn about the idea of “critical thinking.” Is there really such a thing as “uncritically thinking?” To think is to process information in order to form an opinion. But if we are not critical when processing this information, are we really thinking? Or are we mindlessly accepting other opinions as truth? …

The majority of students are put through the same brainwashing techniques in order to create a complacent labor force working in the interests of large corporations and secretive government, and worst of all, they are completely unaware of it. I will never be able to turn back these 18 years. I can’t run away to another country with an education system meant to enlighten rather than condition. This part of my life is over, and I want to make sure that no other child will have his or her potential suppressed by powers meant to exploit and control. We are human beings. We are thinkers, dreamers, explorers, artists, writers, engineers. We are anything we want to be – but only if we have an educational system that supports us rather than holds us down. A tree can grow, but only if its roots are given a healthy foundation.

For those of you out there that must continue to sit in desks and yield to the authoritarian ideologies of instructors, do not be disheartened. You still have the opportunity to stand up, ask questions, be critical, and create your own perspective. Demand a setting that will provide you with intellectual capabilities that allow you to expand your mind instead of directing it. Demand that you be interested in class. Demand that the excuse, “You have to learn this for the test” is not good enough for you. Education is an excellent tool, if used properly, but focus more on learning rather than getting good grades.

For those of you that work within the system that I am condemning, I do not mean to insult; I intend to motivate. You have the power to change the incompetencies of this system. I know that you did not become a teacher or administrator to see your students bored. You cannot accept the authority of the governing bodies that tell you what to teach, how to teach it, and that you will be punished if you do not comply. Our potential is at stake. …

So, here I stand. …

Kevin Conner: Doctrine Determines the Health of the Church

So what does this say about what’s required for full revival to happen?

My answer, below.

– jeff

“Good doctrine produces
good Christians and good churches.

Bad doctrine or no doctrine produces
weak Christians and weak churches.”

Kevin Conner, theologian —
one of my teachers at Abbott Loop’s Bible School in 1984

Quote transcribed by myself
from Rick Benjamin’s PowerPoint slide
during last night’s introduction
to the doctrinal classes that ALCC is now offering.

* * *

Could we then say that:

“The false doctrine of eternal security produces
false ‘Christians’ and false churches.


“Great doctrine produces
great Christians and great churches…

the Third Great Awakening?!!!!!!!”


Kevin Conner on the Believer’s CONDITIONAL Security: “OBEDIENCE IS the very law of SECURITY for all created beings. There can be NO SUCH THING as UNCONDITIONAL security.”

Charles Finney: ETERNAL SECURITY is a TICKET TO HELL — “If a person gets the idea that because he is converted therefore he will assuredly go to heaven, that man will almost assuredly go to hell”

Charles Finney (1835): Instruction of Young Converts — “AIM AT BEING PERFECT. It should be their constant purpose to live wholly to God…. IF THEY SHOULD SIN it would be an inconsistency…. THEY OUGHT NOT TO SIN AT ALL; they are bound to be as holy as God is. And young converts should be taught to set out in the right course OR THEY WILL NEVER BE RIGHT”

Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT

I'm Doubling My Salvation Bible Doctrine Challenge to $6,000!

Starting today, I’m doubling my $3,000 challenge, to now offer $6,000 to anyone who can refute my Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way, which now also includes “Who are the Children of God?”
Please spread the word. If I’m wrong, one of the hundreds of thousands who teach otherwise can cash in. But if not even one can, then why is anyone still teaching once-saved-always-saved or “it’s hard to lose one’s salvation” — the doctrines that are mainstream in ‘Christianity,’ today.
It’s time to get our act together. The consequences for those teaching false doctrine is even heavier than for those who believe what they say.

Let not many of you be teachers, my brothers, knowing that we will receive heavier judgment. (James 3:1)

We need to make sure we’re right. Our country is crumbling, steeped in false doctrine. Only sound Bible doctrine will help bring in the Third Great Awakening — real Christianity — full revival that will be so sweet!
Could it be that doctrines of demons rule the day, and this is why America is so sick?
ONE can happen — Jesus’ heartcry for us to be one with each other in Himself (John 17)!

My $6,000 Challenge! I will give $6,000 to anyone who can refute my “Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way” article

My "Who Goes to Heaven" article has been up for over 2.5 years — without refutation!

My article, Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way article [which now includes Who are the Children of God] has been online since January 14, 2008.
And it’s long been the number one hit in Google if you type in: <who goes to heaven>.
So it has been online for 2.5 years, and has been widely read, and no one can refute it even though I’m offering a monetary reward to anyone who can.
So why aren’t ‘churches’ dropping their false doctrines and teaching the truth so real revival can come?
It’s so clear!

How low does America have to fall before we teach what the Bible really says — before we come alive — ONE with each other in Christ! (Jesus’ heart-cry for us in John 17)

When will we wake up that: [music video] Seawind: The Devil Is A Liar — “Don’t let the Devil do his number on you, child
There is no longer any excuse.
Let’s for once be truly Biblical: right with God and each other so the Holy Spirit can come, indwelling our hearts with peace, joy and power!
But this power is power-under, not power over.

We must follow and be led by the Prince of Peace, under His authority, not the too often reverse-Christian globalist controlled Fox News channel: Is Murdoch’s NIV the ‘N’ew ‘I’lluminati ‘V’ersion? Has the Word of God Been Corrupted to Bring US Into the New World Order?

The Devil is a liar, but the Holy Spirit is life, peace and joy!

More of my research into Fox News and how they control the right with their globalist ‘Christian’ and etc. personalities can be seen at ToBeFree. See in particular these categories:

Sarah Palin
Mike Huckabee
Glenn Beck Deception
George Bush Family
Media Bias Exposed
‘Christians’ Trashing America
Republicans Blackmailable

The Republican party has been almost totally hijacked, and the globalists do it through the naivety of ‘Christians,’ who aren’t learning the truth from their pastors — of whom most are Biblicaly disqualified to lead — which I’ll prove in an upcoming article.

The ‘church’ is the cause of the crash because we haven’t held up the standard. See The Red Gate Prophecy — What If I Open It Just a Little Bit?. We’ve let the sin into our own lives; though, we blame the homosexuals, the Muslims, the Democrats, etc. — when we’re responsible for the collapse of America.

Jesus in Matthew 7:3-5

Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but don’t consider the beam that is in your own eye? Or how will you tell your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye;’ and behold, the beam is in your own eye? You hypocrite! First remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother’s eye.

Do we still even care what Jesus says? I often wonder. Do evangelicals really care about what the Bible really says and about what the Holy Spirit is really saying?
Is Jesus really Lord of our lives; though, we say “Lord…”

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will tell me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in your name, in your name cast out demons, and in your name do many mighty works?’ Then I will tell them, ‘I never knew you. Depart from me, you who work iniquity.’

– Jesus in Mat. 5:21-23

Let us be ONE!

Important post at ToBeFree: Can Sarah Palin be a real, going-to-heaven Christian? "It's time we wake up!"

It’s important that we know what’s really going on. The deception is so great!
I wrote:

Can Sarah Palin be a real, going-to-heaven Christian? The answer is totally clear when you compare the following with what the Bible really says about who goes to heaven and who are the children of God: Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God?

It’s becoming increasingly clear that the globalists are using Sarah Palin to keep the real patriots, like Ron Paul and others from gaining public support. See the links, below.

It’s very sad to me, an Alaskan and a Christian, that Sarah must not have learned enough about the globalists’ agenda and about what real Christianity is in the ‘churches’ she has attended in Wasilla.

And Todd, why don’t you stand up?

I’m convinced the main reason for the fall of America is the false doctrine in the ‘churches’ today….
