When is “The Tribulation”?

If you live in Yemen, Syria, or fire ravaged California, the Tribulation is now. If you are sold into slavery in Libya as a black man, what could be worse. If you are an infant in Indonesia used for sex by an adult male and tossed into a ditch afterwards to die, this is not the promised land. If you live in China and are forced to marry someone you do not care for because children are supposed to obey their parents, you just might be one of the 500,000 rural Chinese women each year who commit suicide by drinking fertilizer.

Perhaps you are a Venezuelan whose Communist nation threw money into a sinkhole and now you are scrounging through the garbage dump for a piece of rotten bread. You might live in Germany and be one of the blue-eyed, blonde white women raped by Muslim immigrants.  Angela Merkel lost her post because of her open door policy, but you are still traumatized, and perhaps pregnant. Or you live in Central America and some guy in the USA gave you money to travel to the US border where he guaranteed you that the Democrats would let you in – but there are armed guards there?  Where will you go?

Maybe you are the unlucky girl friend whose fiance Maniskumar slipped her poison to kill off her unborn child? Maybe he thought the Republicans would not be funding abortions anymore. Maybe he thought the Democrats were too weak in Washington to keep abortion funding in the budget? Maybe if you are pregnant you should think twice about this man you want to marry?  This sounds like tribulation to me.

Perhaps you live on the coast of North Carolina where 8 trillion gallons of water was dumped in one hurricane, ruining the crops, killing the swine and sweet potatoes and making life and a future impossible for decades to come. Or you could live on the street in the Philippines; 1.2 million kids plus mom and dad and 2 or 3 other children. Fortunately it is the tropics so it never gets cold – just wet.

Perhaps you’d prefer Nigeria where one Sunday the Boko Haram may find the Christians in church, lock the doors from the outside and set the church on fire. Eight of the ten largest nations persecute Christians … death, imprisonment, denial of jury trails, or any trial at all, separation from children and economic deprivation. In Michigan as a female you may suffer genital mutilation which can led to life long disease and pain. It’s child abuse of the worst kind, and, as usual, females are the victims.

From my comfy perch in the mountains of North Carolina I can blandly believe that I am living in a sane and protected world.  I am not.  All around me there is tribulation for my peers in the Christians faith. Yes, we are facing the end; it is now, and it is creeping towards us day by day.

Religion is Already Taught in Schools – by Default

It is increasingly foolish to believe that politics and religion do not mix.

Politics involves morals and the decision on what is right or wrong is involved with many if not all governmental business. The ability to tax is the ability to destroy. The ability to fund is the ability to increase, which explains why welfare programs always need more money – the process of giving out money has a way of increasing the need for more.  The same effect can be found in drug programs where programs themselves seem to increase the number of addicts. So how money is spent is a spiritual problem too.

Muslims think it is morally acceptable to kill a woman for wearing lipstick or dating a white American Christian. Muslims also supported incest for the past 1500 years. The fact that this is hidden from the public does not change reality.

ShariaLaw is antithetical to American individualism and basic justice. If they allow the teaching of Islam and not Christianity, they are by default teaching that murdering women and children for frivolous causes is acceptable.  No wonder kids don’t know what to believe! They are also teaching that it is acceptable to have one religion taught and not another. Kids pick up inconsistency very quickly.

Abortion is morally wrong; making it legal does not change the morals of any behavior. It is difficult to teach that murder is a sin or a crime if it is being done regularly by the state. That is a moral issue being taught by default. So moral issues are already in the curriculum as a result of political behavior.

Many states covet large profits gained from legalizing marijuana, but forget that there are many more criminal problems caused by the sale as well as social ills which require infusions of even more money. Colorado is now disgusted with its legalization program and in a quandary of how to get rid of it.  Once you start down these roads things get dicey. How can you preach or teach about addictions when  they are being publicly funded.  Another moral issue by default

Churches and ministers have been taught to leave politics alone but Jesus said go into all the world – not just our little church world.  They fear loss of members and income. But why not fear instead the loss of the Father’s approval? Doing God’s will has a price – and not doing God’s will has yet another price.

Part of the gospel is accountability for the culture.  If schools are bad – and most parents are not all that happy with their children’s education – then the church has a responsibility ti pray for a change in the schools, both of textbooks, which are often wrong, and the teachers who bring their own morals into the classroom.  Paying the teachers more does not affect the quality of the education.  If there are no restraints on what teachers actually teach, higher salaries simply mean you have more people applying for these jobs.

Children know that adults are frauds – how can you say choosing to have an abortion without a parent’s approval is acceptable, but choosing a public school is not allowed?

Parents say “Don’t join a gang” but when a group of marchers loots and vandalizes some businesses, no one charges them with crimes. Does that mean children believe committing crime is voluntary – you just need to be sure you are not going to get caught. Another moral message.

Society can’t survive without a base of morals on which to rest.  Anything else is lawlessness and evertually anarchy. The Church must step in.

A Nation of Murderers

Most citizens know nothing about the felony Murder Rule so here it is:

The rule of felony murder is a legal doctrine in some common law jurisdictions that broadens the crime of murder: when an offender kills (regardless of intent to kill) in the commission of a dangerous or enumerated crime (called a felony in some jurisdictions), he/she is guilty of murder.

Here is an example: If you go with a friend to steal cookies from the 7/11 and a murder occurs as you commit the crime, there you are, a co-respondent to the charge of murder.

This describes our position before God is regards to abortion. Yes, abortion was made legal by our highest court, a court which is now disgusted with the rampant abuse of the option. But the Congress likes to fund abortions with tax money, so you, if you pay taxes, become guilty under the Laws of God for a murder. God’s public anger over the killing of babies goes back 4,000 years.

There is nothing that says abortion is any worse than any other sin; Jesus paid it all, but he only paid it for the people who recognize his sacrifice and accept its conditions.

America needs to examine what our citizens have done from the viewpoint of God’s concerns.  We need a call for national repentance by allowing wholesale murder like this, and then thinking, wrongly, that we are not also guilty of financing this behavior. The laws of man and the laws of God continue whether we know them or not.

Removing abortion funding from the national budget is a first step.  If individuals want an abortion, now determined to be legal, they should be required to pay for it themselves and not saddle other people with the results of their own behavior.

This is not a complete answer to the abortion problem, but it is a start.
