The World is not your Friend

I wonder what Dr. Tozer would think about the churches that are bending over backwards to accept and endorse sin. Would he take special note of the fact that they are “wise in their own eyes?” Makes me think of another voice from years past that said the church’s mission and message is, “carrying the message of the unsearchable riches of the gospel of Christ to the suffering, discouraged, sin-sick souls and to every heart that hungers for cleansing from sin.”

Socialism? Marxism? BLM?

I wish to pose a question about socialists couched in their history and current conduct….

Hitler’s Nazi ism….Socialist. Tried to kill many in pursuit of their perfect world.
Lenin and Stalin’s Communism killing to bring the world under their system of government.
Mao’s Communism and the many killed and suppressed to maintain that system.
Che Gueverra’s Communism and the 14,000 he killed to promote his socialism.

Of the ones listed above who sought to implement by force their Socialist Utopia. There are very many others not mentioned here.

Currently we have….

Venezuela….grinding poverty and killing.
Cuba…grinding poverty and nailing of those who oppose the system.
BLM calling for killing cops and whites. Admitted Marxists.
Antifa calling for killing cops and whites and Capitalists. Admitted Marxists pretending not to be fascists just like Hitler’s Antifa thugs.

Again many are not mentioned here that are still around oppressing their people and others.

Now establishing that I ask…..

When this is pointed out to modern socialists who buy the lie of kumbaya yah pie in the sky uptopian lies that socialists decieve with, the responses are typically from them that socialism failed cause the wrong people were trying to implement it. And that the current present socialists are the right people to do it cause of their good feeling and good intentions. Really? I’m pretty certain the previous examples thought they were the right people in their time to promote Socialism. I’m pretty certain many of them thought they were “good” people with good intentions. Yet in retrospect look how history, genuine history, remembers them.

I think seeing what we are seeing in the news each night about the rioting, destruction, looting and murdering people as acts promoting their movement is a clear cut sign that this is no different that what came before when trying to establish socialism upon us all. By force. The killing and calling for all whites to be killed should be evidence and proof enough that their socialism this time will be no different than the previous attempts to force socialism upon everybody and kill the undesirables like they did before.

This pretty much clinches the fact that socialism is a system of hate, bigotry…and death. Practically all the previous attempts to force it testify to that. And the current crowds rioting and “protesting” also testify to that. I’m certain all these previous attempts saw themselves as good people with good intentions to make a better world. I’m certain they felt good about what they believed to the point they were willing to kill to force it on others.

Many ask how come average Germans did not stop Hitler from coming to power. Look around at what’s happening today. The bullying of Antifa and BLM killing people is no different that Hitler’s Brown Shirts led by Ernst Rohm. And the people did nothing hoping to be left alone and stay out of it.

History repeats itself. Evil prevails when good men do nothing.

Aunt Jemima

The world knew her as “Aunt Jemima,” but her given name was Nancy Green and she was a true American success story. She was born a slave in 1834 Montgomery County, KY… and became a wealthy superstar in the advertising world, as its first living trademark.
Green was 56-yrs old when she was selected as spokesperson for a new ready-mixed, self-rising pancake flour and made her debut in 1893 at a fair and exposition in Chicago. She demonstrated the pancake mix and served thousands of pancakes… and became an immediate star. She was a good storyteller, her personality was warm and appealing, and her showmanship was exceptional. Her exhibition booth drew so many people that special security personnel were assigned to keep the crowds moving.

Nancy Green was signed to a lifetime contract, traveled on promotional tours all over the country, and was extremely well paid. Her financial freedom and stature as a national spokesperson enabled her to become a leading advocate against poverty and in favor of equal rights for folks in Chicago.

She maintained her job until her death in 1923, at age 89.

Nancy Green was a remarkable woman… and has just been ERASED by politically correct bedwetters.

When you take a black persons image off a product you are disrespecting them after death when that image was meant to honor that person. I see that as no different than disrespecting a living black person to their face, albeit a more cowardly thing. I think the product images of Aunt Jemima, Uncle Bens, and others were a statement about excellence about that product and the excellence of those individuals in their profession who granted permission to have their likeness to promote that product. This recent politically correct garbage is getting out of hand.

Hope in the Midst of Chaos

Our country has erupted in chaos. Everyone agrees that what happened to George Floyd was a terrible tragedy that should not have happened and should never happen again. But what has taken place with these riots is also a heartbreaking disaster for so many and for our nation.

I was asked if I was offended by the President walking out of the White House, which is his back yard, and walking over to St. John’s Church. Offended? Not at all. This made an important statement that what took place the night before in the burning, looting, and vandalism of the nation’s capital—including this historic house of worship—mattered, and that the lawlessness had to end.

And I’m not offended that he held up the Bible—as a matter of fact, I was encouraged! I appreciate it. I believe that God’s Word is the only hope for each individual and for our nation. The problem we are facing in this country is a spiritual and moral problem. New laws and more government give-away programs are not the answer. It’s a heart problem, and only God can change the human heart.

I’m disappointed that some of the President’s harshest critics about going to the church were “clergy.” They have publicly (to the media) criticized the President for walking to the church and for holding up the Bible. That’s unbelievable. They should be thanking him rather than criticizing him! They are nitpicking his gesture, also saying he should have prayed while he was there. So critical. Well, maybe they should invite him back and pray for him as he leads this country through a very difficult time in our history.

I call on all pastors, regardless of denomination, race, or political persuasion, to join hands and join hearts in praying for our nation, that God would give wisdom to our leaders—our mayors, our governors, our President Donald J. Trump, and also our law enforcement. The God of the Bible is our only hope. – Franklin Graham, 3 Jun ’20
