Heart of Darkness: The Sinner’s Self-Deception

Real Christianity

         Unrepentant sinners never care to count the cost. They never care to look down the road. They never perceive the future consequences of their actions. They seem to live only for the moment and let tomorrow “take care of itself.”

         There are many Biblical passages which speak to the fallacy of living in such a way. The Lord Jesus taught very much on the subject. In fact, the subject is so widespread and all-inclusive, one should always be cognizant of what one’s current actions will turn into when his or her karma chickens come home to roost.

         Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption… [Galatians 6:7-8]   

         Every day we are planting seeds. Each decision we make and act…

It Begins With A Seed


A Prayer For Our Nation


Why Does Satan Hate the Black Man?

Do you think that I am crazy asking this question? Consider the situation throughout history of people of African descent. No other race has endured the genocide, slavery and degradation more that blacks, except for those of Jewish descent! Is it simply coincidence?

In Africa itself the black race has been subjected to more violence than any other people in the other continents. They have suffered drought, infestations, starvation, almost constant war, enslavement by all the other races and now being converted whether they wish or not into the radical Islamic religion. Their historic cities destroyed by war or deliberately by those who want their destruction.

In all other countries of the world they are often thought of as less than human or considered second class citizens. Even here in the United States they have suffered both slavery and denigration.

But what is currently happening to the black people here in the United States is a genocide that they themselves appear to be ignorant of in most cases, and even willing partners to in others. They have allowed themselves to be suppressed by those who really want to have power over them and yet really care nothing for them.

Look at who is being aborted, jailed, unemployed, and killed in this country. Most of it is people of African descent. Those in power do not want them to really prosper, they would much rather see them continually dependent on them and yet are rarely called out by the people that they are supposed to be representing.

While many would like to blame it on those who are conservative, if you look at it objectively, you find that most of the policies that are put in place to control people happen when liberals are in power. It is amazing how even many churches are blind to the real enemy of the black man!

Can anyone of faith fail to recognize the face of evil when they see it? It is usually the one with the most beautiful face with the hand out saying let me do that for you. Then once you accept, you are tied to them and they frequently remind you of how much you owe them. The prince of lies has had eons to perfect his ploy and is extremely good at it.

But why the special emphasis on those of African descent? Am I wrong is thinking that there is a pattern here? This is not the will of God, He loves all and sacrificed His Son for all those who choose Him. If it is not the will of God, that just leaves Satan. We have the story of Job as an example, and yet Job knew that he did do anything wrong.

At the same time, it would be hard to accept that people of African descent did something so horrific that they would deserve what they have. In point of fact it is impossible, Jesus did not say that any race would be ineligible. Therefore that just leaves Satan. And I say again, why is Satan so bent on the subjection and eradication of the black man? Because that is the direction that they are headed in many parts of the world. Even here in the United States, the black on black violence is increasing every day. The failure of the schools is leading to increasing ignorance in the communities of all people. Drug use is tearing families apart and yet it is being encouraged by many of those in power. Far from our current leaders trying to help those who are unemployed find jobs, they are instead regulating the jobs out of existence and bringing in even more low skilled and unskilled to take jobs away from those most vulnerable. They are pushing for the abortion of babies at any stage of development, making healthcare substandard and less available that it was previously. They are perverting our faith and abusing our beliefs. They are even encouraging us to kill the lesser and needy in order to profit those they consider better.

Why does Satan hate the Black man?

Jesus Christ – The ONLY TRUE Friend of the Black Man!

Praise for His Promises

image by Christopher Wilson

Teach me Your way, O Lord,

in You, I will abide;

may I fear Your great Name,

a heart none can divide.

I will ever praise You,

O Lord with all my heart;

I’ll praise Your Name always,

the Granter of new starts.

Great is Your love for me,

delivered from the grave;

powerful, Your promise,

so plain the path You pave.

Though arrogant surround,

You are my gracious Lord;

slow to become angry,

lavish love You afford.

Turn to me, have mercy,

and grant to me Your strength;

demonstrate Your goodness,

keep me in Your arm’s length.

 

(Responding to Psalm 86:11-17)

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that as we abide in You, You instruct and strengthen, protect and provide grace. Thank You that You are slow to anger and abound in love. Forgive us for taking grace for granted, and help us to ever praise You. Teach us Your ways, and make plain the path You have set before us. Strengthen us so that we may have undivided hearts, and forever abide in You. As we walk in faithful obedience, may many come to know of Your great love, so that they too, will abide in You. Great are You, our gracious and loving God! Amen.

U.N. began with high hopes…but ‘a growing disregard for U.N. Charter’-Reagan

Bill Federer

The name ‘United Nations‘ was coined by Franklin Roosevelt for nations fighting the National Socialist Workers Party (Nazi) and their axis powers.

Speaking on Justice for War Crimes, March 24, 1944, Roosevelt explained how the original goal of the United Nations involved protecting the Jews:

“In one of the blackest crimes of all history – begun by the Nazis…the wholesale systematic murder of the Jews of Europe goes on unabated…Hundreds of thousands of Jews…are now threatened with annihilation as Hitler’s forces descend…

The United Nations have made it clear that they will pursue the guilty…All who knowingly take part in the deportation of Jews to their death…are equally guilty with the executioner…

The United Nations are fighting to make a world in which tyranny and aggression cannot exist.”

On November 11, 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt complimented the Jewish Theological Seminary of America:

“If the world to emerge from the war after a victory of theUnited Nations is to be a world of enduring peace and of freedom, that peace and that freedom must be founded on renewed loyalty to the spiritual values…

Enemies of mankind who are arrayed in battle against us realized this, and therefore began their effort to subdue the world with an assault on religious institutions…which…taught…the dignity and worth of human personality…

In cooperation with Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant scholars…it will in time, I trust, become an increasingly powerful instrument for enlightening men of all faiths.”

The day after Franklin D. Roosevelt’s funeral, President Harry S. Truman told Congress, April 16, 1945:

“Our forefathers came to our rugged shores in search of religious tolerance…Within an hour after I took the oath of office, I announced that the (United Nations) San Francisco Conference would proceed…

In the memory of our fallen President…I appeal to every American…to support our efforts to build a strong and lastingUnited Nations Organization…with Divine guidance, and your help…

I humbly pray Almighty God, in the words of King Solomon: ‘Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart.'””

In April 25, 1945, President Truman addressedUnited Nations delegates at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco:

“At no time in history has there been a more important Conference than this one in San Francisco which you are opening today…

We beseech our Almighty God to guide us in the building of a permanent monument to those who gave their lives that this moment might come.”

The United Nations Charter was signed JUNE 26, 1945, by 51 member nations. It began with high hopes, as President Harry S Truman stated, March 6, 1946:

“We have just come though a decade in which the forces of evil in various parts of the world have been lined up in a bitter fight to banish from the face of the earth both these ideals-religion and democracy….founded on one basic principle, the worth and dignity of the individual man and woman.

Dictatorship…is founded on the doctrine that…men and women and children were put on earth solely for the purpose of serving the State…

The Protestant Church, the Catholic Church, and the Jewish Synagogue – bound together in the American unity of brotherhood – must provide the shock forces to accomplish this moral and spiritual awakening…Unless it is done, we are headed for the disaster we would deserve…

We have tried to write into the Charter of the United Nations the essence of religion.”

One of the first acts of the United Nations was to recognize Israel as a nation on May 15, 1948.

In 1953, President Eisenhower addressed theUnited Nations:

“The whole book of history reveals mankind’s never-ending quest for peace and mankind’s God-given capacity to build.”

Eisenhower’s delegate to theUnited Nations was Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., who sent a letter to every member state, December 30, 1955:

“I propose that God should be openly and audibly invoked at the United Nations

I do so in the conviction that we cannot make the United Nations into a successful instrument of God’s peace without God’s help – and that with His help we cannot fail.

To this end I propose that we ask for that help.”

The U.N.chose not act on Lodge’s proposal.

Charles Habib Malik, President of the United Nations’ General Assembly, 13th Session, who helped write the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, stated in 1958:

“The good (in the United States) would never have come into being without the blessing and power of Jesus Christ…

Whoever tries to conceive the American word without taking full account of the suffering and love and salvation of Christ is only dreaming.

I know how embarrassing this matter is to politicians, bureaucrats, businessmen and cynics; but, whatever these honored men think, the irrefutable truth is that the soul of America is at its best and highest, Christian.”

In subsequent years, the mission of the United Nations has become unclear.

Former President Herbert Clark Hoover told the American Newspaper Publishers Association, April 27, 1950:

“I suggest that the United Nations should be reorganized without the Communist nations in it.

If that is impractical, then a definite New United Front should be organized of those peoples who disavow communism, who stand for morals and religion, and who love freedom…

What the world needs today is a definite, spiritual mobilization of the nations who believe in God against this tide of Red agnosticism. It needs a moral mobilization against the hideous ideas of the police state and human slavery…

It is a proposal to redeem the concept of the United Nations to the high purpose for which it was created…It is a proposal for moral and spiritual cooperation of God-fearing free nations…in rejecting an atheistic other world.”

By June 10, 1963, President Dwight Eisenhower confided to the National Junior Chamber of Commerce:

“The United Nationshas seemed to be two distinct things to the two worlds divided by the iron curtain…

To the free world it has seemed that it should be a constructive forum…

To the Communist world it has been a convenient sounding board for their propaganda, a weapon to be exploited in spreading disunity and confusion.”

Ronald Reagan addressed the U.N. General Assembly, June 17, 1982:

“Eleanor Roosevelt, one of our first ambassadors to this body, reminded us that the high-sounding words of tyrants stand in bleak contradiction to their deeds…

In these times when more and more lawless acts are going unpunished…some members of this very body show a growing disregard for the U.N. Charter…

President Truman said, ‘If we should pay merely lip service to inspiring ideals, and later do violence to simple justice, we would draw down upon us the bitter wrath of generations yet unborn.'”

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by theUN General Assembly,December 10, 1948, recognized basic human rights, such as:

freedom of opinion and expression; freedom to change religions; right to education; no slavery; no forced marriages; no torture; and no inhumane punishment.

Islamic leaders of 57 countries rejected the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

They formed the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. In 1990, they passed the ‘Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam’ affirming Shariah law as supreme, with the death penalty for those leaving Islam, censoring free speech insulting Islam, and allowing men to be polygamous and beat their wives.

War started in Korea via American Minute

Bill Federer

“FREEDOM IS NOT FREE” is the inscription on the Korean War Memorial in Washington, D.C.
The Korean War started JUNE 25, 1950.

Communist North Korea invaded South Korea, killing thousands.

Outnumbered South Korean and American troops, as part of a UN “police” action, fought courageously against the Communist Chinese and North Korean troops, who were supplied with arms and MIG fighters from the Soviet Union.

General Douglas MacArthur, who led the United Nations Command from 1950 to 1951, made a daring landing of troops at Inchon, deep behind North Korean lines, and recaptured the city of Seoul.

General Douglas MacArthur warned in a speech to the Salvation Army, December 12, 1951, stating:

“History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline.

There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.”

With temperatures sometimes forty degrees below zero, and Washington politicians limiting the use of air power against the Communists, there were nearly 140,000 American casualties in:

the defense of the Pusan Perimeter and Taego;

the landing at Inchon and the freeing of Seoul;

the capture of Pyongyang;

the Yalu River where nearly a million Communist Chinese soldiers invaded;

the Battles of Changjin Reservoir, Old Baldy, White Horse Mountain, Heartbreak Ridge, Pork Chop Hill, T-Bone Hill, and Siberia Hill.

President Harry S Truman stated while lighting the National Christmas Tree, December 24, 1952:

“Tonight, our hearts turn first of all to our brave men and women in Korea. They are fighting and suffering and even dying that we may preserve the chance of peace in the world…

And as we go about our business of trying to achieve peace in the world, let us remember always to try to act and live in the spirit of the Prince of Peace. He bore in His heart no hate and no malice – nothing but love for all mankind.

We should try as nearly as we can to follow His example. We believe that all men are truly the children of God…

As we pray for our loved ones far from home – as we pray for our men and women in Korea, and all our service men and women wherever they are – let us also pray for our enemies.

Let us pray that the spirit of God shall enter their lives and prevail in their lands…Through Jesus Christ the world will yet be a better and a fairer place.”

President Dwight Eisenhower’s son, John Sheldon Doud Eisenhower, served in Korea during the war. First Lady Mamie Geneva Doud Eisenhower stated in a conversation at the Doud home regarding him:

“He has a mission to fulfill and God will see to it that nothing will happen to him till he fulfills it.”

Fighting in Korea was halted July 27, 1953, with the signing of an armistice at Panmunjom.

At the College of William and Mary, May 15, 1953, Dwight Eisenhower stated:

“It is necessary that we earnestly seek out and uproot any traces of communism.”

Dwight Eisenhower stated December 24, 1953, lighting the National Christmas Tree:

“The world still stands divided in two antagonistic parts. Prayer places freedom and communism in opposition one to the other.

The Communist can find no reserve of strength in prayer because his doctrine of materialism and statism denies the dignity of man and consequently the existence of God.

But in America…religious faith is the foundation of free government, so is prayer an indispensable part of that faith…The founders of this, our country, came first to these shores in search of freedom…to live…beyond the yoke of tyranny.”
