Silent Pulpit = Silent Church

The ( on-going ) Inherent Dangers

of the Silent pulpits of Christianity -

( And ) Islamic deception [ is ] satanic deception. “Silent pulpits” are DANGEROUS to us ALL.

Silent pulpits allow poisonous doctrine from poisonous charlatans and snake oil salesmen

to seduce the Body of CHRIST. Many dangers and heresy’s 'take root' because they are allowed to. False doctrine, Biblical inerrancy, Idolatry, the list is far too great to be stated here.

Pastors, Brother and Sisters of the Body of CHRIST,

We would all do well to revisit Jeremiah 23 - Regularly.

Although this passage was written primarily to the false leaders in Jeremiah’s day, the principle still applies to us—

We ( ALL ) need to stand firm in GOD’S counsel. Verse 1 say’s:

"Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter

the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD."

SILENT PULPIT DANGERS ( I ) -

This movement, this ‘satanic’ movement of Islam that wants to kill The Church By any means possible, continually gains momentum, partly because of The Silent Pulpits.

We ARE in a Spiritual Battle. A bloody awful battle -

A battle that is raging, despite the silence of the pulpits.

Simply looking the other way - Does not make the problem go away.

On the contrary --

It exacerbates it. And the enemies of GOD count on that.. This GOD, that god…….

Isaiah 46:9

“Remember the former things of old: for I am God,

and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,”

Now then ~

Let’s dive straight in shall we..?

“...allah & Muhammad…”

What - are ( they ) all about?? { enter }-----> “ satanic deception. “

{ Muhammed }

Moslems believe the quran was revealed by the angel Gabriel to Muhammad.

-(-( Right from the start - we have a conflict and contradiction in this 'belief'. )-)-

You'll see why......

Does The Word of GOD say anything in regards to ( ANYONE ) receiving doctrine

From an angel, or anyone else for that matter? Yes. Yes it does.

Galatians 1:8 say’s: But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any

[other] gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you,

let him be accursed.

- “Or an angel from heaven” -

This is a very strong rhetorical mode of expression.

It is not to be supposed that an angel from heaven would preach any

other than the TRUE GOSPEL. Which incidentally, was given by THE HOLY SPIRIT. And Not [ ANYONE ] ELSE.

CONTRIVANCE -

There are two places Moslems say the Bible refers to Mohammed

by name and why. Here is ( 1 ) in reference to John 14:16, 26:

(16) “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter,

that he may abide with you for ever;”

(26) But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father

will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all

things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

The reasoning used by Moslems based on the translation from Greek

The word “comforter” is translated from the word “Paraclete”

(“Ho Parakletos” in Greek).

The controversy on the word for Comforter/Advocate used in the Bible,

John 14 & 16, for the Holy Spirit. While the Greek manuscripts have

paraclete, paracletos, meaning "one who comes along side",

some Moslems argue that the word should be periklutos, meaning "Praised One",

which in Arabic is Ahmad, which Moslems take to be Muhammad.

There is an apparent direct reference to "Ahmad" in the Qur’an, surah as-Saff 61:6,

and so Moslems find 'periklutos' appealing because then a prophecy

of Muhammad can be ( supposedly ) deduced from the Bible. ( That is grammatically and definitively, WRONG. )

(The problem, however) - is that there is not a shred of evidence in support of this theory,

and the thousands of NT manuscripts ( predating Islam ) all do not have periklutos.

Christians and all extant manuscripts have all confirmed that the word is

paraclete as it stands.

Early testimonies of Moslem (Muslims) testify that the Bible's paraclete is correct.

“ Gibberish “- [is] ~Gibberish, and Baloney [is] “Baloney…”

Islam ( in, and of, itself ) is a contrivance.

It is confusion and contradiction after

contradiction, and most assuredly, [ NOT ] Biblically supported as

Inspired WORD from GOD, EL SHADDAI - “GOD MOST HIGH”

Is GOD the author of confusion? Indeed NOT !

1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion,

but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

( WHO THEN…) [ IS ] the author of confusion?

In The Gospel of Mark 4:39, there is a great storm.

This is no ordinary storm. It IS none other then satan, stirring up the sea. It is a satanic storm....

CHRIST treats this storm and the sea as if they were antagonistic and rebelling forces

under a dominating, unrestrained power, but JESUS' WORD is sufficient to calm them,

just as it commands demons to leave those who are possessed.

Conflicts and rebellions have their source in satan,

the author of confusion in both the physical and spiritual worlds.

Physical evils in nature and among mankind are among satan's works that

JESUS came to overcome and destroy.

When JESUS speaks to calm the storm, Mark indicates that He addresses more than

a meteorological force but a 'being' ( behind it.)

When HE ( JESUS ) commands the sea, "Peace, be still!"

the Greek phrase means "be muzzled or gagged," as though the storm were a maniac

that had to be bound and restrained.

The context of the verses in John 14 & 16 ( do not support periklutos,)

as shown below. In fact,

( If Comforter refers to Muhammad, then we also have to accept ) --

- that Muhammad is the Holy Spirit in John 14:26,

( which is TOTALLY WRONG )

(It is a contradiction in terms altogether)- Both in Christianity and in Islam.

(It is contradicting Moslem belief that the Holy Spirit is the angel Gabriel. )

It is contradicting:

- that Jesus sends Muhammad in (John 15:26 and 16:7) and

- that Jesus sends Muhammad in Jesus' name,

- that Muhammad dwells with the disciples forever. (John 14:16-17).

(No!)

Not only is Muhammad too late by ( 600 ) years, he can't dwell with them forever.

The argument that the truth / law given by Muhammad will be with them forever is

spurious of course, since they never receive it.

-And that the disciples of JESUS know Muhammad. (John 14:16-17). (No!)

All of which, ( by the way ) are [ unthinkable ] to a Moslem!!

If it is the word periklutos, then this passage must [ also ] mean a previous "praised one",

and no one has no clue as to who this previous "praised one" was.

JESUS was ( never ) given such a title, indeed ( no person ) in the Qur'an was, either.

Further, the literal meaning would be that "He will give you another Ahmad". (?) This makes ZERO SENSE.

( More bad interpretation…)

* Some Muslims have argued that because

the Bible uses the pronoun "he" when used with "Comforter"

and "it" when used with "Holy Spirit", therefore, these two are not the same. [ ? ]

{ Easily refuted.} -- when JESUS speaks of a "Comforter," HE uses the pronoun "he,"

but when John the Baptist speaks of seeing the Holy Spirit descending on JESUS,

he uses the pronoun "it."

But "Comforter" translates the Greek PARAKLETOS, which is a masculine noun, and (therefore) takes a masculine pronoun,

while"Spirit" translates the Greek PNEUMA, which is neuter,

and therefore takes a neuter pronoun.

The quran provides (minimal assistance) for Muhammad's chronological biography;

most quranic verses (do not) provide (significant) (historical context.)

The personage of ‘Muhammed’ was [not] central to early Islam (at all), and at this

very early stage Islam was in fact an (Arabic Christian sect) which had (objections to)

the [ concept of the trinity. ]

1 John 5:7-8

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word,

and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit,

and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

There is [ considerable ] academic debate over the real [chronology]

of the chapters of the Quran.

Initial study of ancient Quran manuscripts found in Yemen conclude that the Quran

is a "cocktail of texts", some of which may have been existent a hundred years

( before ) Muhammad.

According to [ traditional ] Islamic scholarship, all of the Quran was written down by Muhammad's

companions while he was alive (during AD 610–632). ( sound familiar ) ?

The written compilation of the whole Quran in its definite form as we have it,

was not completed until (many) years ( after ) the death of Muhammad.

The ( so-called )historical elements and the unhistorical elements of many of the reports of

Authentication of the time placement of ‘Muhammad’ have [not] been very successful.

Hence the [historicity of] ‘Muhammad’, - including his (existence), is debated.

The earliest Moslem source of information for the life of Muhammad, the Quran,

gives (very little) personal information and its [historicity] has been questioned.

As early as 1930, the question for the existence of Muhammad was raised by-

Soviet orientalist Klimovich.

Soviet Orientalist studies in Islam, are academic discourses by Soviet Marxist

theoreticians about Islam, its origins and development based on historical

materialism and Moslems.

The question for the historicity of Muhammad was put on the agenda, when in the 1970’s

the so-called: “Revisionist School of Islamic Studies”-

raised fundamental doubts about the reliability of traditional Islamic sources.

A 2003 book: “Crossroads to Islam”, by: Yehuda D. Nevo and Judith Koren, advanced a thesis

based on an extensive examination of archaeological evidence from the early Islamic period,

that Muhammad (may) [never] have (existed)-

with monotheistic Islam [only]

coming into existence some time after he is (supposed to have lived.)

Muhammad Sven Kalisch, a Moslem convert and Germany's ‘first’ professor of Islamic theology,

has expressed the view that the 'Prophet Muhammad' (probably) [never] existed.

This opens up a scale of possibilities summarized in alternatives to the default assumption

of the [historicity] of a Muhammad recognizably similar to:

The Hadith Accounts. ( The “hadith” collections include traditional, hagiographic accounts of

the supposed verbal and physical traditions of Muhammad.)

{ Hagiography definition }: an excessively flattering biography…

A very admiring book / writing, about someone or a description of someone that

represents the person as perfect or much better than they really are...

The Islamic tradition on the life of Muhammad (may be) entirely legendary.

( Or ) was [active] roughly a [century] (later than suggested) by Islamic tradition.

The personage of Muhammed is said to have died in 632 A.D.

{ By the way, A.D. stands for} - (anno domini, or "in the year of our LORD"} Revelation 2:13-14

And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

13I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

14But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

Revelation 1:8, 17-18.

8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Psalms 146:8

The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:

Malachi 2:10

Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?

Ephesians 4:6

One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

1 Timothy 2:5

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

James 2:19

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

Isaiah 45:5-8 ( say’s )

I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: 6That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. 7I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. 8Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.

{ Allah } allah is a contraction of the Arabic al-Ilāh, “the god.”

The real question 'EVERYONE' should be asking is:

When ‘’they’’ say allah -

Which ' god ' are ‘’they’’ referring to?

allah most certainly does ( NOT ) refer to: "El Shaddai" or, "GOD ALMIGHTY".

This pseudo god, "allah"- is nothing more then another name for

The Old Red Dragon, The devil, that is: satan.

And according to the Bible, ‘’allah’’ [ is ] satan.

As a matter of fact; the quran ( states ) that 'allah' IS 'satan !

Qur’an 1:1 indicates that Moslems worship ‘’the god of this world’’ which is, 'satan',

who is known as the best deceiver (and) who leads people astray.

Let us look at what both the Bible and the Qur’an say to prove this point...

Qur’an 1:1 states that allah is the god (lord) of this world:

1The praise be to allah, the lord of the worlds. allah is satan as it is written throughout the Qur’an.

The Bible states in 2 Corinthians 4:4 that the god of this world is in FACT: [ satan ]

2 Corinthians 4:4

“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,

lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God,

should shine unto them.”

Both verses in Qur’an 3:54 and 8:30 state that allah is the 'best deceiver':

And they deceived, and allah deceived. And allah is the best deceiver.

What does the Bible say about this?

Revelation 20:10 tells us: And the devil that deceived them…

Revelation 20:10, And the devil that deceived them was cast into

the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are,

and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Qur’an 35:8 states that allah leads people astray:

8…So surely allah leads astray whom he wills and guides whom he wills.

Does GOD lead people astray? No.

‘Allah’ is not GOD ALMIGHTY ! ‘Allah’ is [ not ] The GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

1 Corinthians 14:33

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all

churches of the saints.

Psalms 71:1

In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.

Deceiver

Who then, does the ( Bible ) say wants to lead people astray and keep them from having

eternal life through JESUS CHRIST?

THE ANSWER IS: satan. - satan leads people astray.

1 Peter 5:8 tells us that satan walks about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour,

and Revelation 12:9 states: The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called

the devil, or satan, who leads the whole world astray…

Qur’an 38:85 and 11:119 both state that allah desires to fill hell with people:

85…surely I will fill hell from you and from those who followed you from among them together.

119 …“I will surely fill hell with the jinn and the people together.”

Moslem orthodoxy holds that ‘Uthman’s Quran contains all of the revelation delivered to the community

faithfully preserved without change or variation of any kind and that the acceptance of the ‘Uthmanic Quran

was all but universal from the day of its distribution.

Q: who is Uthman? Uthmān ibn ʿAffān, (died June 17, 656, Medina, Arabian Peninsula),

the third caliph to rule [ after ] the death of the Muhammad. He centralized the administration of the caliphate and established an official version of the Qurʾān.

[ This orthodox position ] is motivated by [dogmatic] (factors);

And it cannot be supported by the historical evidence. Or lack of....

* {' Dogma' [ dogmatic ] is: a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true. }

Under what or who's authority makes either of these central figures ''dogmatic''?

( Both ) allah & muhammad are wrought with inconsistencies and conjecture, which is an opinion

or conclusion formed on the basis of incomplete information.

It ALL Sounds 'fishy' to me, and based on solid scholarship by hundreds, if not thousands of scholars

throughout the centuries and solid corroborating Biblical evidence, it all sounds like the work of satan and his cohorts. (( GOD ALMIGHTY - CREATOR, Authored The Word of GOD. ))

The 'copycat' satan authors EVERYTHING ELSE !

SILENT PULPIT DANGERS- ( II )

Islam Controlled by Rome?

“... while radical Moslems are an enemy of Christians, they are controlled by the Jesuits of the Roman Catholic Church.” The Jesuits, too, are enemies of CHRIST.

The Jesuit network is occultic as well as powerful. It is claimed that the Jesuits control Islam everywhere,

through the Wahhabi form of Islam.

And one conspiracy group says the Jesuits took

Islamic murders to the USA (thewatcherfiles.com).

Another group says the doctrines of Islam and Rome are identical (vaticanassassins.org).

But, identical statements do not necessarily prove anything.

It IS known, however, that the personage of Mohammed copied large portions of both Old and New Testaments

and inserted them into his Koran.

It is more likely, to me, that Mohammed’s religious ideas are just as heretical as Rome’s are

and are ‘coincidental mates’.

( satan can and does, give the same ideas to multiple sinners! )

Talk about blinded !

Islam is nothing more than an extension of satan's [ control system.]

SILENT PULPIT DANGERS- ( III )

...SILENCE IN THE PULPITS…

(Islam is socialism.)

Hitler managed to obtain the support of Islamists in the Middle East.

He enlisted Moslems in a special SS unit, the Yugoslav Nazi ‘Handschar’ [or] khanjar

(Turkish word for scimitar) division, which was known for its brutality,

quite in keeping with Islamic terrorism. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem

(Mohammed Amin al-Husayni) readily asserted that the Nazi national socialism

was equal to Islamic principles. This unit especially hated Serbs and Jews.

The Mufti worked with Eichmann and sent troops to ‘Palestine’ to eliminate Jews,

[ if ] Rommel broke through British lines in Egypt.

He also helped to block Jewish escapes from Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania.

Many national leaders during WW2 -

were used as puppets by the Jesuits who advised Hitler,

including Mussolini, Petain, Franco, Cardinal Initzer, Frank, Jesuit priest Tiso,

Pavelic, Degrelle, the Grand Mufti Husayni (http://www.liberalslikechrist.org/Catholic/NaziLeadership.html ).

Yet, today, a Jesuit astrophysicist, Manuel Carreira said

“Islam is the worst plague that humanity has seen in the past 2000 years”

(Jihad Watch, 17th April, 2016).

I think the best we can say is that many groups switch sides if it is convenient...

On the other hand,

pope Francis insists that the Koran and Islam are OPPOSED to every form of violence! ( Rubbish.)

(Jihad Watch, November 2013).

Yet, the murderous intent, beliefs and actions of Islam are abundantly clear

throughout the world, and even (declared) by Islam.

Many Catholic clergy (and laity) (( ‘sorry’ Catholics.. )) misuse Luke 13:29

(“And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north,

and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.”).

Of course, this has NOTHING at all to do with ANY pagan,

whether Roman Catholic or Moslem.

[ Only the elect,] - those who are saved by grace alone, will sit at that feast.

( Jesuits are [blasphemous] to say they and Moslems will be seated. )

QUESTION:

“Why are Jesuit universities in the United States hiring Moslems to teach Islamic studies? And seeing how INCORRECT the teachings of the quran are -

WHAT EXACTLY ( ARE ) THEY TEACHING??

And why would a Moslem professor leave a well-paying post at a state university

to teach at a ‘Jesuit ‘institution?

These are just two of the questions raised at a meeting of Moslem professors

of Islam at Jesuit universities, which was held in Washington, D.C.

The meeting was organized by the national coordinator for interreligious dialogue

of the U.S. Jesuit Conference, and Jesuit and Moslem scholars from

( nine ) Jesuit institutions took part.”

(American Magazine, September 2008).

WHY?

Why indeed...

The answer is, they are [ both ] ( fascist and pagan,) and hate GOD

and Christians, (despite) their outward statements.

{ There are (many) activities among Jesuits that promote Islam.}

They cover all the Mediterranean, so they in no doubt use this foundation to fight

anti-Islam sentiment throughout Europe at a time when Moslems are defying

law and order, and killing people.

The same meddlers organized joint events to (promote) ‘mutual understanding among

Moslems and Christians’ even though (Jesuits are not Christians.)

The only understanding this brings is the [ fact ] that it ‘’reeks of ignorance

and weakness’’ in ‘Christians’!

It is a weakness Moslems will use full force when the time is right.

This is but a rudimentary examination of the topic,

and Jesuits are certainly at the heart of Catholic-(Moslem) cooperation,

just as ( the pope ) in WW2 was [complicit] with Hitler

in his hatred for Jews and others. The “SILENT PULPITS”

during WWII ( were ) responsible for the deaths of Countless souls.

….And the silence continues….

In recent U.S. politics, (Twice) we have elected a socialist, anti-American, divisive, irresponsible

and feckless leader who weakened our national security and wreaked

havoc on our economy and brought riots, murder and mayhem to our streets.

Not to mention the countless Dissident Aggressors he brought in by plane,

and by land through our ‘un-protected’ southern border, passing them off as

Immigrants and / or emigrating peoples.

(Emigrate means to leave one's country to live in another.)

In this case, illegally, often times with no other means of I.D. other than an Airline ticket.

--{ Barack Hussein Obama was an UNMITIGATED DISASTER.}--

He held office twice. Shame on [us] for NOT removing him.

America is spiritually sick. And this ‘sickness’ needs to be eradicated, FAST!

As a nation, we have drifted ( Far ) from GOD.

We are become as the Laodicean Church of Revelation, of whom our LORD said, “You say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked…”

We have kicked GOD out of our schools and allowed teachers to indoctrinate

our young with the notion that there is no CREATOR -

That everything came from nothing, and all the while - we complacently support and

kill innocent unborn babies by the millions. This is ( Ritualized murder ).

When a nation turns to, or towards evil,

it’s people become blind and foolish in many other ways.

A foolish and wicked people will choose foolish and wicked leaders.

And still, there is Silence from the American pulpits...

Many of our Pastors are ( not )

directing their preaching at the dangerous direction our country is engaged in.

Not [all] Pastors, to be sure, but far too many ignore the important subjects of our time.

It is as though we were all in a boat, a hole is BLOWN in the bottom of the boat

And water is gushing in, and everyone is ignoring the problem,

their attention directed upon a pretty sunset...

Matthew 23 -

But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

14Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

15Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

Our Pastors are silent about the impending dangers, MANY impending dangers

and being silent about impending danger,

IS NOT BEING A GOOD WATCHMAN ON THE WALL, IS IT ??

Jeremiah 6:17

“Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet.

But they said, We will not hearken.” Ezekiel 33:6

“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.” Our nation is under attack by Islamic terrorists while our nation is paralyzed by apathy, not understanding the necessity and biblical right of our country to go to war to protect its people.

Our country is dangerously in debt, so much so that we are

in danger of a catastrophic monetary collapse

of Biblical proportion.

Our country is going down the tubes. And still, there is silence from the pulpits.

Christians throughout the world are being beheaded, drowned and burned alive.

When have we heard a pastor urging us to take action? Or to write to our representatives,

demanding a military response to protect our brothers and sisters in CHRIST?

A sermon on Proverbs 24:12 is in order:

“If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it?

and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it?

and shall not he render to every man according to his works?”

"If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not." --

Man being too much inclined to answer after the manner of Cain (Genesis 4:9),

“Am I my brother’s keeper?” when he might give aid to those who need it.

As Proverbs 24:11 warned men against acquiescing in an unrighteous tyranny,

so this denounces the tendency to hush up a wrong

with the false plea of ignorance. ( It just doesn’t fly..)

{ Acquiescing means: to accept something reluctantly but without protest. }

Shall not he render to every man according to his works?

GOD will certainly deal with thee as thou hast dealt with him,

either rewarding thy performance of this duty,

or punishing thy neglect of it. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather be rewarded for performing

My duty, then to be punished for neglecting it. Especially a Righteous Judgement from GOD on the matter,

rebuking in no uncertain terms, and demanding to hear from us why we did nothing?

Job 38:3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. We all know how the secularists scream “separation of church and state,”

to try to squelch morality.

But Christians are culpable as well when they go along with the idea that the Church

“should only preach JESUS and stay out of politics.”

The belief that we just preach the gospel and everything else will work out fine,

is a ( failed ideology. )

This failed ideology has brought our country and OUR CHRISTIAN IDEOLOGY

to the brink of destruction.

There ( was ) a time when Christians understood, and were told from [ the pulpit ]

that electing godly leaders was a “Christian responsibility.”

It is time to reinstate this practice.

It is time to ( encourage ) our pastors to be bold and put an end to the anemic

and apathetic attitudes of the Christian Church. ( Of course, President L.B. Johnson made it Illegal for churches to speak against politicians, right? )

An amendment, pushed by Lyndon Johnson many years ago, threatens religious institutions with a loss of their tax-exempt status if they openly advocate their political views. Wait!? Churches are ALREADY TAX EXEMPT. They ALWAYS have been.

US churches* received an official federal income tax exemption in 1894,

and they have been unofficially tax-exempt since the country's founding. All 50 US states and the District of Columbia exempt churches from paying property tax. Donations to churches are tax-deductible.

( So there really is NO Excuse for Silent Pulpits, is there? )

Boldness was one of the first characteristics the Holy Spirit imparted when He came to indwell believers after JESUS ascended into heaven. The followers of JESUS had been hiding in fear of the Jewish authorities, praying and encouraging one another. Then the HOLY SPIRIT came upon them, and those formerly terrified disciples became fearless preachers (Acts 2). A short time later, as the disciples faced persecution from the authorities, they prayed for boldness (Acts 4:29). Their prayer was answered, and they were filled with the Holy Spirit and

“spoke the word with boldness” (Acts 4:31).

GOD gives us boldness when our objective is to obey and glorify HIM with it. 1 Corinthians 9:16

For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!

Proverbs 28:1 says, “The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.” The righteous are bold because they know that GOD is for them and what they have to say is important (Hebrews 13:6). When the apostle Paul was in prison, he wrote to the churches asking for prayer that he be bold in continuing to proclaim the gospel (Ephesians 6:19). Godly boldness is motivated by passion for CHRIST and HIS truth. It is rarely self-centered because it requires us to set aside our natural desire for comfort and popularity. For Paul to speak boldly would most likely mean more persecution. Stephen spoke boldly and became the first Christian martyr

(Acts 6:8–10, 7:1–2, 54–58).

As followers of CHRIST, we should pray as Paul did -

that the LORD will grant us supernatural boldness to speak and live as He would have us do.

In this age of great deception and resistance to truth, we need boldness more than ever.

Boldness, coupled with love and humility (1 Corinthians 13:4–8; 1 Peter 5:6), is like a light in the darkness (Matthew 5:14).

When we are convinced that our message is life-giving and eternal, we can speak with boldness,

knowing that GOD will use it to impact our world (Isaiah 55:10–11). It’s time to wake up !

It is time to stand BOLDLY against our enemy, satan

And his forces.

Time is running short !

It should be every Christians aim and goal to spread

THE GOSPEL to EVERYONE - EVERYWHERE.

Mark 13:10

And the gospel must first be published among all nations.

GOD wishes for ALL to be saved !

Matthew Chapter 18:14-15
14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

We cannot do this by remaining silent.

We cannot do this by being ignorant of the Scriptures. ( STUDY ! )

We cannot do this by bowing down to the enemy. ( satan )

We cannot do this by accepting false doctrine. ( satan, again )

We cannot do this aiding and abetting false teachers and false prophets.

2 Timothy 1:7

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love,

and of a sound mind.”

Acts 28:31
