The coming Christian revolt
WND ^ | Matt Barber

Posted on 07/18/2014 10:05:00 PM PDT by Morgana

From behind a smoking sniper rifle high atop his ivory tower peers the secular-”progressive.” He surveys his many victims, strewn across the American landscape below and mockingly sneers, “War on Christianity? What war on Christianity?”

He then resumes shooting, all the while insisting that those uncooperative Christians who scatter for cover behind the word of God and the U.S. Constitution somehow suffer from a “persecution complex” (the baker, the photographer, the florist, the innkeeper, the Christian school administrator, etc.).

Though there are many, it is plain for all to see that abortion and “sexual liberation” remain the two principal theaters in the ongoing culture war battlefront.

To fully advance the causes of radical feminism, abortion-on-demand, unfettered sexual license, “gay marriage” and the like, the pagan left must do away with religious free exercise altogether. Under the guise of “anti-discrimination,” Christians today face discrimination at unprecedented levels.

Let’s see if we can make this abundantly clear. Christians, true Christians – regenerate, Bible-believing Christians who strive their level best to maintain fidelity to the word of God and honor His commands – will not, indeed cannot, participate in, approve of, facilitate or encourage certain behaviors deemed by the Holy Scriptures to be immoral or sinful.

This is both our constitutionally affirmed human right and our Christian duty.

It is not done from hate. It is not done from bigotry. It is done neither from a position of superiority nor a desire to “impose our beliefs” upon others.

It is done from both obedience to Christ and compassion for our fellow fallen who yet wallow in folly.

Although I don’t see any real revolt coming. We might spend 100 years in the wilderness waiting for this Soviet to collapse

Not so much a Christian revolt as an American revolt. I just can’t see Christian shooting people regardless their transgressions. I can see Christians defending themselves but leaving the rest to G_d.

A true child of Christ doesn’t kill.

Doesn’t seem like Christians have much fight in them.

And who, exactly, would make the decision who was a socialist? Sounds like socialism to me.

“A True Child of God doesn’t kill.”

Was King David a “true child of God”?

Is there a difference between kill and murder?

Is service to the U.S. Constitution murder, killing,

or defending a moral contract?

There is a difference.

So, as a Christian, I should kill those that appose my beliefs. Sorry my friend, if that were true all those that proclaime themselves a Christian should be killing on a regular basis.

The Gospels of Jesus gives us a different perspective. We are to forgive those that offend us. We are to live a life of forgiveness, a life that gives glory to G_d and a life that reflects his glory. To randomly shoot someone because he/she is a socialist is strongly unbiblical.

I understand your consternation, but to shoot every one you thinks is a socialist is not the way to go.

That’s right.

Socialists/Progressives are enemies of our Prosperity, Security and Freedom, among other things.

I disagree. If Christian military heroes such as the Frankish warrior Charles Martel and the Roman emperors Constantine IV and Leo III had turned the other cheek in the face of the Muslim hordes, we would be praying to Mecca five times a day and our world would be little different from that of the eighth century.

SOME, not all. Don’t imply that all Christians have no fight in them.

Socialist or not, if you are DEFENDING yourself, in a life or death situation, or your family, or a total stranger for that mater, it ain't murder Hoss.

Read what I was responding to.

Please, you and I both know your response has nothing to do with the subject at hand.

A poster said we should kill all socialist and my responses refers to his post and his post only.

A true child of Christ doesn’t kill.

Western civilization, aka "Christendom" was only viable a civilization when it wasn't really all that Christian. It was able to survive and thrive When the Crusaders, Conquistadors, and Teutonic Knights were cracking people's skulls open.

Modern Christians have finally become the "eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven" that they were commanded to be.

Why pick up a gun and fight for your freedom when to wage violence is to endanger your immortal soul?

Why not content yourself to being a poor little abused slave to the marxists in this world and then collect your reward in the next life?

Thats how we got to where we are today. The disordered left has free reign to do whatever it wants, and the "opposition" has its hands tied behind its back by its "values" perpetually wringing those hands worrying if they are being charitable enough.

Christians don’t have to revolt. All they actually have to do is get off their butts and go vote rather than wait for God to act. I blame them as much as I do the leftists.

How many evangelicals are above getting involved in the muck of politics?

A true child of Christ doesn’t commit murder. Big difference.

Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, 1971

 RULE 4 - Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules no more than the Christian Church can live up to Christianity.

 Exodus 20:1-17 and Deuteronomy 5:4–21 – The Ten Commandments
 Leviticus 19:34 (NIV, © 2011) 34 The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.
 Matthew 5:38–5:42 – “turn the other cheek”
 Matthew 7:3-5 – “speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye/ plank in your own eye”
 Matthew 7:12, and Luke 6:31 – The Golden Rule
 Matthew 22:34-40 – “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
 Luke 6:27–31 – “love your enemies”
 Luke 6:37 - “Do not judge, and you will not be judged”
 James 2:10 - 10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.

Luke 22:36-38

Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end. And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

A true child of Christ does not center his life on violence (two swords are enough) but is willing to use deadly force as needed in God's work (go and buy a sword). It may be time (past time?) for a few more Christians to "sell their garments".>P> We have a duty to respond lovingly toward gays. The issue is that encouraging and celebrating sinful behaviors is not loving, especially when those behaviors are the primary means of spreading a disease that has killed 30 million people worldwide and continues to kill nearly 2 million a year. The hateful response is the liberal one of "go ahead, anything you enjoy is good".

‘A true child of Christ doesn’t kill.’

You might want to read the Old Testament a little closer.

‘So, to shoot a socialist is to “kill” and is not murder?’

In the Old Testament when someone killed someone the elders came to him and he would explain why if it was thought justified he was free to go his way. Murder is different and is viewed in the Ten Commandments as being so. It says “Thou shalt not murder, not thou shalt not kill.

Old story when a killing took place in Texas the Rangers first question was, “Did he deserve killing?”

No one is advocating that with their comments.

I would have to look it up, but there is a point in scripture about bending pruning rods into spears. Also something about selling ones cloak for a sword. So this stuff about Christians supposed to be milquetoast is a lot of rot.
