Moral and cultural cowardice

The Christmas and New Year period 2015-16 was marked in Europe by rampaging Muslim males sexually assaulting numerous women in Cologne, Germany.  They burnt Christmas trees in Belgium and violently assaulted people in an Oslo suburb.  The last one is nothing new.  Muslims have declared no-go zones across western Europe and regularly assault people who do not respect their sharia in those areas.  Don’t forget the British soldier with his head hacked off in England or the mass killings last year in France and the USA.

Where are all the westerners out protesting against all of this.  They protest the G8, climate change, the TPP and anything to do with the ‘infringement’ of homosexual ‘rights’, but remain silent on terrible atrocities.  Even when Muslims rampage through Paris and San Bernardino all we see are candle light vigils.

The fact is the western world has so wrapped itself in self-loathing and liberal multicultural newthink that it has lost its moral compass.  We have been told it is politically incorrect (verboten) to speak ill of another culture, even if it is a theocratically Islamic and contradicts all the West used to stand for.  Westerners have become cringing moral cowards.  So, lets put the record straight with a few home truths:

Western civilisation reached the pinnacle of human achievement in just about every area of human progress.  We in the West may have some blotches on our record, but they shrink to the size of pinheads when arrayed against the vaunting successes in science, medicine, agriculture, human freedoms and the institutions of good government and justice.  There is no other culture to match it in the past or the present and no better culture waits in the wings.  In fact it is quite the reverse, that is why much of the world has copied the West in many ways.  It is not racist to point this out.  It is simply a fact that does not bear on ethnicity but on a set of Judeo-Christian values that made the West possible.  If any other ethnic group had embraced the same values they would have been as equally successful.

Islam is a pervasive, aggressive and expansionist death cult and a cultural system that reduces all those who are enslaved in it to a mediocre existence.  The fact that many Muslims do not rally around the jihad flag changes nothing.  Islam has no redeeming features and will, if allowed to go unchallenged, become progressively more violent.  What’s worse the evidence for the veracity of its very teachings is missing. One point six billion people are living under a religious system that only exists because a 7th century murderous maniac claimed he had heard from God.  There are no lines of evidence that comport to verify his claims.

The West is set on a course, under the liberal elite dominating politics, corporations, academia and the media, that must inevitably lead to either moral and cultural capitulation to the Mullahs of oppression and death, or a bloody fight back to reclaim Western civilisation’s values and right to survive.  The longer we leave it the more certain we can be that death and violence will escalate.  We can’t run and there is no-where to hide.

The Israelites fell under God’s judgment and lost their martial strength because they invited foreigners with false god’s in, celebrated the multicultural diversity in those gods and made alliances with the nations that worshiped them.  The Israelites lost their cultural compass and they defied the laws of God to do it.  The West is doing much the same today. The consequences will be similar – bloodshed and misery.

Joyce Meyer: The false doctrine heretic

In a recent Huffington Post article American pastor Rick Henderson ‘came out’ to name both Joyce Meyer and Joel Osteen as false teachers.  This is significant.  Few pastors are willing to defend the truth today. Truth Watch has been lamenting this fact for over 12 years.  Most of them are more afraid of incurring the wrath of some segment of their congregation than they are the wrath of God.

Pastor Rick lists 6 examples of Meyer’s gross error.  Perhaps the worst are the last two where she admits her teaching on Jesus and hell are not found in the Bible – they have come to her by ‘special revelation’.  She also claims she is now no longer a sinner and prescribes that you have to believe what she says about Jesus and hell to be saved.  Taken together Meyer is claiming that she is, contrary to Scripture, a sinless being capable of receiving new revelation that we are all just supposed to accept without question.  Meyer is a typical example of the false teacher, claiming special gnostic insights, more reminiscent of Mohammad’s claims to revelation than anything remotely connected to true Christianity.  Even more tragic than Meyer’s arrogant delusions is the continued following she has amongst people who are clearly not Christians or so poorly grounded in the faith that they can fall for this nonsense.  There are clearly many churches failing to teach correct doctrine, otherwise Meyers foolish cant would be recognised for the garbage it is.

The pastor’s list of Meyer’s false teachings follows.. Each is accompanied by a Meyer quote.  To read the full text of the article go to: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/pastor-rick-henderson/osteen-meyer-prosperity-gospel_b_3790384.html

1. She teaches that Jesus literally stopped being the Son of God on the Cross: “He could have helped himself up until the point where he said I commend my spirit into your hands, at that point he couldn’t do nothing for himself anymore. He had become sin, he was no longer the Son of God. He was sin.”

2. She teaches that Jesus went to Hell and became the first-born again man: “Do you know something? The minute that blood sacrifice was accepted Jesus was the first human being that was ever born again. Now that was real it happened when he was in hell.”

3. She teaches that Jesus paid for our sins in Hell: “There is no hope of anyone going to heaven unless they believe this truth I am presenting. You cannot go to heaven unless you believe with all your heart that Jesus took your place in hell” -From The Most Important Decision You Will Ever Make

4. She teaches that words have power and you can release the power of Heaven through your words.

5. She teaches that you need special revelation from God to understand what she teaches because it is NOT contained in the Bible: “The Bible can’t even find any way to explain this. Not really. That’s why you’ve got to get it by revelation. There are no words to explain what I’m telling you. I’ve got to just trust God that He’s putting it into your spirit like He put it into mine.”

6. She teaches that she is no longer a sinner.
