Wow, I’m now a member of the Axis of Evil

posted by J-Walking

Well, I am glad that Jesus loves me unconditionally. For now, I am, according to a Christian writer, a member of the “Axis of Evil.” I don’t have that much time to write right now, but will have more to say in a bit but that is unexpected. And, leaving every sorrowful attempt at humor aside, so sad.

Thank you for your book. I do not say this because I am a registered democrat, looking for a gotcha, but rather because I am a Born Again Believer who believes it is the responsibility of the rich to care for the poor and the strong to protect the weak. I struggle daily to reconcile my Christian Beliefs with my politically affiliation: I am pro-life, pro biblical definition of marriage. But Luke 11:42 says, “Woe to you Pharisees, because you give God a tenth of your mint, rue and all other kinds of garden herbs, but you neglect justice and the love of God. You should have practiced the latter without leaving the former undone.”I am all for righteousness and VALUES but to me these include not only moral issues but also loving my neighbour as myself. Your book is a proof, once again, that the battle for the entrenchment of righteousness in this nation can, in large part, only be won on our knees and not through the ballot, politicians or political affiliation.

The truth shall set you free:George W. Bush, the man, is a person of profound faith and deep compassion for those who suffer. But President George W. Bush is a politician and is ultimately no different from any other politician, content to use religion for electoral gain more than for good works. Millions of Evangelicals may share Bush’s faith, but they would protect themselves–and their interests–better if they looked at him through the same coldly political lens with which he views them.

David, “axis of evil”? That is nothing. They’ve only just begun to smear you. Look what they did to John Kerry and his record of heroic service in Vietnam. Look what they did to John McCain in 2000. Look how they smeared John Murtha, a 37 year veteran of the Marine Corps, including Korea and Vietnam. Look at how they smeared Sen. Max Cleland, a veteran who left two legs and an arm behind in Vietnam.Look at how they smeared the retired generals who spoke up about the war. Shall I go on? This is what they – the Bush true-believers – have become. Look at some of your comments, like Mr. Buttram who considers himself a Republican first, an American second, and a Christian third… maybe. There is a sickness in this country. I don’t mean just a political sickness, though it was caused by politics. The Republican party has appealed to the worst of human nature in their quest for power.

It’s just plain sad to see the article you link in this post. For some people, being a Christian has the same amount of challenge and moral and ethical weight as being a member of the high school class of ’05 rather than ’06. The writer doesn’t mention, much less address, anything you wrote about in your book. Nope, just, tar you as “liberal” and a critic of the administration. So your words are to be ignored, and you are to be hated. What on Earth has this got to do with the teachings and life of Jesus?

Thank you, David, for taking the straight and narrow — and yet many times precarious — path in the service of the Most High. Although I haven’t read your book yet, I plan to as soon as possible, and I applaud your courageous spirit. Surely, you have been called of God (YHWH) to awaken his sleepy people from their slumber, to awaken and listen to what the spirit is saying to the churches in these end times. It is truly a time to “fast” and remove oneself from politics, and wash our hands from the blood which has besmirched them. As John the Baptist was a voice crying in the wilderness, “Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand,” so it is in the END TIMES… Lisa”Babylon Is Fallen”While Christians in America walk around in a consumer-driven, glassy-eyed fog, living the relatively good-life, waiting for Jesus to come and rapture them away, out of the time of trouble that is to come upon all other mankind, the world at large is beginning to hate American Christians more than any other species on the planet, and sadly, rightfully so. When the persecution of the church begins it will not be like it was in the days of Rome, good vs. evil, but will be fueled by the righteous indignation of unbelievers to the self righteous, the greatly deceived – the fallen who have come out of the true teachings of Yahshua, Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. , in support of domestic and global oppression, torture and murder for the cause of the state (the literal beast) rather than standing for the true Gospel of Yahshua. The Book of Revelation (which we are in the opening pages of now) describes the anti-Christian backlash of what we are currently witnessing in America’s global domination and internal police state agenda, which is supported by mostly Christians who worship the president and his policies more than the teachings of Christ or even their own U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. This automatically creates an anti-Christ Christian, or one who is against the teachings of Yahshua when they differ from that of the policies of the beast (government). Someone asked Benjamin Franklin, “What kind of government do we have.” To which he replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.” It appears that we will not.The Christian church in America has been fed a carefully crafted fable of endtime events by the disciples of Satan in order to get them off-guard as to the truth of what end time prophecy is truly saying, and in effect has caused many to fulfill the ungodly roles of the very characters whom they see as some future manifestation. In other words, what we have perceived as some future prophetic events are actually happening right now.The term Antichrist has been purposely twisted to mean something that the scriptures do not say, and we have believed a lie regarding this term rather than what the Word says on the matter. I often wondered, why would Satan do this? For what purpose would he twist the scriptures to make the term Antichrist point to some endtime world leader instead of what the Bible says? Now I understand, and the truth is both shocking and frightenly sad and will lead many who think they are right with God to great, great disappointment. If you look up the word antichrist, you will notice the term is never used in the Book of Revelation or the Book of Daniel, the two primary books regarding end time events. However, EVERY scripture that does speak of the antichrist speaks of many, not simply a one world leader.So why did Satan twist this term to equate to a one world leader? To take the eyes of the believer off of the truth regarding endtime prophecy, as the antichrist spirit plays a key role in endtime events, however, this antichrist spirit is not a world leader at all, but leaders within the Christian church who lead many of God’s people into becoming antichrists also. How? By getting them to compromise the teachings of Yahshua in favor of supporting the ungodly and un-Christlike atrocities done by their government (the beast) and thereby they fall into the trap of worshipping the beast, rather than God. That is what is transpiring in America right now with many well meaning, yet totally compromised, Christians. The great end time deception is in full swing, and many there be who have been caught in it’s snare. If you support the policies of what is now occurring within America, the going over to the DARK SIDE as Cheney was quoted as saying on the news show, Meet The Press, the torture, the incarcerations without charges, the mass killing and maiming of over a quarter million Iraqi civilians based on a proven LIE, and you still want to know who the antichrist is, you will find him very easily, and very close just look in the mirror. The following may be considered Bush-Bashing, but it is not, it is Beast-Bashing! George W. Bush is merely a figure head of a much greater agenda, the establishment of the fascist government spoken of in the Book of Revelation, the New World Order or One World Government. Satan’s biggest victory is that he has deceived many of God’s people in helping set it up under the guise of a Christian endeavor that bears all the fruit of the Satanic endeavor that it truly is. Those who are offended may need to look into themselves and call upon God to know if they are guilty of worshipping the beast, rather than God. Bush is not the beast, as beast equates to a government, not a person. Bush is the current head of one of the beasts mentioned in the Book of Revelation. The fallen will not understand this without prayer.Since the events of September 11, 2001, an evil paradox has fomented. It is beyond bizarre that while most unbelievers can see the overt, Satanic wickedness within the current executive branch of the government, the average Christian in America, like some kind of brainwashed zombie actually applauds the literal works of the devil! A proven LIAR, who approves the torturing of un accused, uncharged yet incarcerated for life men, women and children, a murderer and maimer of men, women and children, a deceiver of biblical proportions, yet the people who say they believe in God and the teachings of Jesus support and sing his praises, more so than the unbelievers who can recognize wickedness better than those who call themselves Christians. No Christian can approve of what the Bush administration is doing and has done and follow the teachings of Jesus at the same time – it is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE! God has given us clue after clue after clue of Bush’s real nature and his evil intent for this country, yet we will not hear of it!No other president in the history of America has ever been caught in so many LIES, deceit, overt robbery and treachery than this president – NOT ONE! Where is it in the Word where Yahshua taught us to support and coddle liars and deceivers? I thought that Jesus was pretty specific when he said, “Satan is the father of lies.” So why are Christians practically the ONLY people left in America who still support this known, endtime deceiver of biblical proportions? This is all a part of the endtime deception, as is the rapture, that many Christians in America will be begging for very soon. As Christians continue to support policies to torture the rest of the world, to kill and to maim other people’s children, other people’s wives, other people’s husbands, grandfather’s, grandmother’s, mothers and fathers, they have, by their gross falling away, set into motion all the needed global resentment to literally bring to pass Revelation 18, the destruction of Mystery Babylon (America, and not the Catholic Church as some incorrectly interpret it to be) and ignite WWIII against America and Christians, which of course, will be for other people’s children also, because we’re all going to be raptured away. This is by far the most EVIL philosophy and mindset I have EVER witnessed in my fifty-some years on this cesspool called earth. It’s like someone lighting the fuse to destroy most of mankind and thinking they will be the only ones that God will allow to escape the horrors that they are responsible f
or starting! Look at these pictures, have we not brought the tribulation period to Iraq? How much worse can it be for them? What Are we more precious in God’s site than them? Yet we, in our extreme comfort and false security are able to laugh it off and go our merry way, praising God in our churches and not giving these poor souls a second thought, taking no responsibility, as these are not our children, they’re other people’s children, and they are certainly not Americans – Praise God! We make Him sick!What, my fellow Christian? Were we bored? So bored with waiting for the return of our Savior that we decided to support an agenda that is in total violation and contradiction to the Divine Commission given us by our Savior, to go into all the world and preach the Gospel of the Kingdom? What is this new Satanic, directive that we have taken upon ourselves, and from whence does it come? “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel of depleted uranium, and those that disbelieve, these signs shall follow them, they shall cast off limbs, they shall be maimed and tortured and cast into the outer darkness of Abu Ghraib and Gitmo, for eternity, where there shall be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth…”The beast will be the beast my Christian brethren, and the beast will do its beastly things, but why has the Bride of Christ so gleefully jumped on the back of the beast in this? Riding and supporting the works of the beast that are so putrid, so sexually perverted that all the world can see there is something grossly wrong with America! Did we honestly believe that the head of this beast was a Christian, just because he says he is, yet continually bears the extremely rotten fruit of a liar, deceiver and a heathen? This is not Bush bashing

“Questioning the faith and motivation of this administration is wrong.”Are we mindless robots now? Unable to question the motives of our leaders? The above Ben Franklin quote is quite apt, I sincerely fear our nation may not be able to keep its Republic. But I intend to fight like mad to stand up for it. Thak you, David for doing so so boldly. I know you noted just needing to leave humor aside, though frankly the whole “Axis” speech was so laughable its hard not to… and I find laughter more than needed at times like this. The Onion had a wonderfully satirical coverage of it back in 2002, mock-reporting how numerous other nations imediately became jealous and tried forming their own axies of “Not so Nice,” “Rather Mean” and “Surly before One’s Morning Coffee.” I tried to find a link, but they don’t archieve back that far, alas. But I thought I’d share for what its worth, just think you got in on the ground floor, tons of bumper sticker, t-shirt and bragging rights there. :P
