You Have Heard 2

You have heard that it was said! Matt5

You have heard that it was said….(in Churches and on Christian talk radio stations):

“You should be Republican, vote, fly the American flag in Church and at home, never question an Republican administration, be proudly patriotic, be involved in politics, take America back for God, support the troops, support the war, and never be against anything the government does.”

But I say to you, Jesus said no such things.

“You should combine your faith in Christ with political action, patriotism, and allegiance to the State.”

But I say to you, Jesus said no such things.

“It is ok to hate people and support war, destruction, nation-takeovers, global government building, assassinations, imprisonment of terror suspects, torture, killing of enemy combatants, genocide, killing of innocent civilians, government sponsored corruption & evil, etc.”

But I say to you, Jesus said no such things.

“The Church should be blindly obedient to the State and totally supportive of the State whatever it does, that is our duty as Christians.”

But I say to you, Jesus said no such thing.

The Churches and Christian radio stations are lying to you. They preach the opposite of what Jesus Christ taught. The State Churches have an agreement with the government: they must NEVER oppose any government policies. They must support government policies verbally or be quiet. Jesus said render unto Caesar that which is Ceasar’s! He only meant the taxes that they want. Not your heart, allegiance, obedience, service, honor, worship and life! (And your children.) Those things belong to God alone! Jesus also said, “Thou shalt not kill.” He said if you say in your heart, “You idiot!” you are guilty of breaking this commandment and are headed for judgment. He does not want us to hate people and kill people. He does not want us going on military crusades! Jesus did not teach “Just War.” That was inserted into Christianity by Constantine and then Augustine during the time of the creation of the great Beast-Harlot system which masquerades as Christianity. They combined Church and State! But Jesus said to us, love your neighbor as yourself. He said to us, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. He said to us, bless those who curse you, bless and curse not! He said go into the world and make disciples. He did not tell us to kill people. He did not tell us to help the evil Roman government and military take over the world. He told us not to get revenge. Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, My servants would fight.” It is satan that wants you to kill people. It is satan that loves war, lying, stealing, rape, torture, killing, death and destroying. Jesus said to love, bless, serve, give freely, give life, preach truth, and bring the gospel to people. He told us to preach saying, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” He said if we want to come after Him we must deny ourselves, pick up our cross and follow Him. He did not proudly march to war to kill “the enemy” or to “take back the Holy Land”. He humbly went to His death on the cross. The wars of this world are for the world’s desires and plans to gain the world for themselves. The kingdoms of the earth are of this world. But we are not of this world. We do not belong to this world’s kings and kingdoms. We belong to another King.

  1. These are very good posts sister. Conservative and liberal american christendom is a mirror of our conservative and liberal political parties. The debate is framed – answers A and B both lead to death and hell. Just look at the emergent church – young people jumping out of line A (conservative christian right) and jumping into line B (liberal social gospel). Like jumping from one train onto the one running on the track next to you. They’re both headed for the same cliff – they just offer different menus and entertainment on the way to hell.

    Heavens answer is none of the above – it’s Christ, His kingdom, His clear word.

    God bless you and your family in Him -Jim

  2. Amen! Excellent original post and continued post. It takes “salt” to purify the “tainted/poisoned” waters……..

    Makes me think of a moment between Jesus and the pharisees in John 7:

    15The Jews were surprised and asked, “How can this man be so educated when he hasn’t gone to school?” 16Jesus responded to them, “What I teach doesn’t come from me but from the one who sent me. 17Those who want to follow the will of God will know if what I teach is from God or if I teach my own thoughts. 18Those who speak their own thoughts are looking for their own glory. But the man who wants to bring glory to the one who sent him is a true teacher and doesn’t have dishonest motives.

    Amen! Let GOD be true and every man a liar……for their is a way that seems right to every man; but it is merely foolishness…for HE is the ONLY WAY for HE is TRUTH! Thanks again sister!
