And You Thought You Could Appease The Communists?

BY Herschel Smith
3 months, 1 week ago


Police Chief of Department Terence Monahan who knelt with BLM protestors in June was beaten during protest activity today, according to the Daily Wire. Monahan and other officers were marching in the Power to Prayer March.

The AP reported that “Police photos of the aftermath showed a lieutenant with a bloodied face, a detective holding a bandage to his head, and a bicycle officer helping a fellow officer dress a head wound. Monahan, who last month knelt in solidarity with protesters, sustained injuries to his hand, said to be bloodied but not seriously hurt.”

There is no appeasement.  There is no compromise.  There is no getting long.  They want an end to the American system and the destruction of the middle class.

I do have one more point to make.  I’ve heard some of my folk (Christian) say they want peace, preaching and prayer.

Fine, all points.  But peace will not happen, prayer is always good, but regarding preaching, these people don’t even have a common language with us.

Let me see if I can explain it this way.  You’ve all heard the stories about missionaries who had difficulty with their work because the tribe to whom they were witnessing had no word for “such-and-such,” let’s say, sin, or forgiveness, or atonement, or grace.

But that’s not right.  It’s more than just the lack of a common word.  It’s the lack of a common thought.  Gordon Clark says in his book (this is a simplification) “Language and Theology” that words are merely tags for thoughts.  The use of words constructed into sentences has as its point the communication of a thought from on person to another.

Horace Mann and John Dewey successful eradicated Christian thought from the American scene, and the dispensationalists, rather than fight it with scholarship, sit and wait on being spirited away from the problem.

America is done.  The communists today lack a common world view, common thoughts, and a common language even to understand what we’re saying when we speak to them.  Do you see?  We don’t even speak the same language as the communists today.

Their redemption means the destruction of Western civilization, although they wouldn’t use the word redemption.  Even witnessing to them means a basic level of understanding and education they don’t have.  This is a multi-generational problem, not one that can be fixed with a sermon.

    Herchel — you know of what you speak — you are exactly right.
    But we fight anyway, right? Blood and faith.

    For all we know His hand is stretched out still. Are your folk doing the preaching? Sharing the gospel is a task that all Christians are supposed to do. If every Christian did their job, if the body of Christ is a living being, then as a living being it must reproduce or it is not alive. If we warned everywhere we go, if every Christian told 10 people the Gospel this week and every week what would happen? His word does not return void.

    American Christian men are scared. They don’t believe God, they don’t believe the power of God, and they most assuredly don’t believe the power of God in them.

    If American Christians were serious men they would burn DC to the ground and see to it that everybody there be hanged from the neck until dead for the treason against Holy God of abortion/infanticide. Jehoiada comes to mind.

    Yes, you can both share the gospel and burn DC to ground in the same week.

    But the only poofing out of here they will attain is off to the camps with them, because they don’t truly believe.

    And prayer for what? For what are they praying? The only right prayer is to ask for mercy and to please make it quick and leave a remnant, as God judges America into the dust bin of history for the inaction, INACTION, of Christian men. The greatest leader and teacher and profit that ever lives is in them, and they watch TV grieving the Holy Spirit to barely an ember. They have the Holy and Inerrant word of God and want somebody else to tell them what it all means. Pathetic. And they are still praying for somebody else, somewhere else, to DO SOMETHING!!! Ridiculous. They get what they deserve.

    Christian men in America don’t even have their own house in order. Is it any wonder? Judgement starts in the house of God. They hear this, they know it, but they don’t believe it, apparently.

    After you get up off of your knees go do the exact thing you just prayed for. Yes, do it wrong the first 5 times, yes it’s impossible for you, yes nobody will care and nobody will listen, yes nobody will do what you ask, until they do, and they will. If it God’s will, it can be done. How do we know His will? If it adheres to His word then it is His will. For example; God wants that no man would die (2Pete3:9), so then how can they have eternal life? Tell them how. Do you want a Christian nation? YOU MUST MAKE IT THAT WAY!!!

    Remember, the whole thing has been inverted. People look to government for solutions. This is one of the biggest scams that evil has ever perpetrated upon mankind. Government is downstream of society, and that society’s norms are downstream of it’s religion. Go fix your religion!!! Is it too late? For all we know, His hand is stretched out still.

    As to prayer; I personally have zero problem (I don’t want this to sound flippant because I don’t mean it that way but) turning God’s Holy Word back on Him and stating His promises, duties, blessings, and our promises, duties, blessings back at Him. Example; God where is the fruit? You promise that your word will not return void. Where is the fruit, what is the fruit that I’m to produce, how can I bring in the harvest some 100, 60, 30 fold for you and you alone to get the glory that the name of Christ be magnified in earth above any other name. Holy God, how can I save our civilization? Not how can somebody else, not who will preach it, not who will pray it, not when will Jesus; how can I.

    3…2…1 here comes my Christian brother’s opposition to this, every. single. time. I get more opposition to trying to return America to Christ from Christians than from self declared pagans. Go figure.

    The only hope for America is an outpouring of the Holy Spirit causing revival and repentance. The question is whether God will grant us once more to be a beacon of light for His glory or will judgement fall upon a wicked nation filled with Revelation churches of Ephesus, Pegamos, Thyatira, Sardis and Laodicea. The minority of churches like Smyrna and Philadelphia will suffer greatly at the hands of men for being faithful. (Rev. 2)

    I agree, Fred, American Christian men are weak, I’m as guilty as any of them. In many cases this condition is due to the weakness of their pastors who are more concerned about numbers, buildings, stature within their cities and appeasement with the social justice crusaders.

    “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

    Most of all, there aren’t many men willing to pledge their lives, their fortunes and their honor to set America right.

    @JJ, everything I’ve learned has basically been on my own. A man can hear preaching and read good websites like this one but he must pursue what he hears and track down the details, follow the threads in the Bible, do the leg work. Nobody is going to give us the education you need to overthrow your masters, and that includes Church Leaders.

    How do we know that He isn’t pouring out His Holy Spirit but everybody is busy watching TV and otherwise denying Him? I can’t count the number of times I’ve told God no, stubborn, stiff-necked. We must be willing to do what seems to the be most unusual, even bazaar things that don’t make any sense. God truly does only give you the very tiny first step. You must follow it, in faith, before you see where it leads.

    Receiving the outpouring of the Holy Spirit is not a passive thing. We must take the prompting and go with it.

    @Fred – you are correct. My weakness as a Christian man rests upon my shoulders alone.

    As a young man, I learned from being in church/Sunday school. As an older man who realized that the mainstream denominational churches were falling away I had to do my own education by listening and reading faithful Bible teachers, as well as associating with men stronger in the faith than I.

    A word to the wise Fr. John +, people do get banned from this site. It’s not my site and sometimes I don’t understand why, but sometimes I can see it coming from a long way off.

    Fr. John+ Your inability to keep you main objective on point and drifting into diatribe takes away from advancing a sound, convincing argument.
