America’s Spirituality

(Their are some pictures below of some Christians being persecuted so some pictures may be graphic to some viewers;Viewer discretion is advised.)

This country is currently drowning in immortality by several states saying that marriage isn’t only between a woman and a man, murder (abortion) is becoming more of an option, preachers are preaching a Christ less gospel and the head leader of this country is doing nothing to protect Christians with the freedom of religion bill.

I want to start off by discussing the president, Obama, he has told the world over and over again that he is a Christian but his fruits say otherwise. Matthew 7:16 says “You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?

Obama is claiming to be a Christian but while millions of Christians are being killed daily Obama is doing NOTHING! If Muslims were being killed like this h e would have launched  a national campaign against that .

Neither Christians or Muslims should be killed for their religion but by being a Christian you are the light of the world so naturally the world won’t like you that’s why Jesus said in John 15:18-27.

18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.

21 But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He who hates Me hates My Father also.

24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. 25 But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me. 27 And you also will bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning.

Now that you see that Jesus was hated first it should make more sense to you why Christians are being persecuted.

Christians are being mocked every where from the media to the pulpit. I know that sounds weird when I say from the pulpit but let me explain.

Anytime a pastor tells someone that they need to pray to Mary in order to get into heaven they are mocking Christ. In one of my previous posts I go in detail about the bible verses that show Mary accepting Jesus as her Lord and Savior.

The Catholic Church has allowed anti Christian ideologies to  creep into their church throughout the years consequently misleading millions of souls. Praying to Mary is one prime example of idolatry worship. To pray to someone else is idolatry and God hates idolatry! Some people may say that they aren’t praying to Mary they are just honoring her ;If you have a statue of anyone that is showing that you think so highly of a person that you want a statue of them. Some people have statues of Jesus but that is not needed because Jesus is alive and well unlike idol gods so you don’t have to go pray to a statue you can have a conversation with him like you would with anyone else.

People pray to biblical figures like Saint Paul, Mary , John the Baptist, etc.; when in reality they are praying to dead people who don’t have a Heaven or Hell to put them in. Their were many witnesses who said they saw Jesus resurrect ,and no they weren’t having hallucinations(Some people who try their best to deny Jesus’ existence will make up any theory.)

(The image above is the image of Jesus’ tomb {Where he was buried.}but he is no longer their now .)

Jesus appeared 12 times to different group sizes ranging from just one person to 500 people.(Biblical Proof)

” 1) Mary Magdalene (Mark 16.9-11; John 20.11-18), Peter in Jerusalem (Luke 24.34; 1 Cor. 15.5), Jesus’ brother (insider skeptic) James (1 Cor. 15.7).

“And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any [man]; for they were afraid” (Mark 16.8). Some of the New Testament authors explicitly claimed to be eyewitnesses to Jesus’ resurrection (and transfiguration).

Peter said, “We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty” (2 Pet. 2.16). John also said, “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched…we proclaim to you what we have seen and heard” (1 John 1.1,3).

2) The other women at the tomb (Matthew 28.8-10).

3) The two travelers on the road (Mark 16.12,13; Luke 24.13-34).

4) Ten disciples behind closed doors (Mark 16.14; Luke 24.35-43; John 20.19-25).

5) All the disciples, with Thomas, excluding Judas Iscariot (John 20.26-31; 1 Cor. 15.5).

6) Seven disciples while fishing (John 21.1-14).

7) Eleven disciples on the mountain (Matthew 28.16-20).

8) A crowd of 500 “most of whom are still alive” at the time of Paul writing (1 Cor. 15.6). This may have been the same group as in Matt. 28.16: the rendezvous was to “to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them.” Unlike the other accounts which were unexpected and by surprise, and to gather such a large number of people, this meeting was held outdoors. The women were told to tell the disciples to meet Jesus in Galilee as well. “And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted” (Matt. 28.17) may be a reference to many present, both believers and non-believers.

Paul had firsthand contact with them. So it was not a legend. He knew some of the people had died in the interim, but most were still alive. He is saying in effect they are still around to be questioned. You can talk to some of the witnesses. He never could have made this challenge if this event had not occurred.

9) “Then to all the apostles” (1 Cor. 15.7) which includes the Twelve plus all the other apostles.

10) Jesus appeared to the disciples in Jerusalem (Luke 24.44-49).

11) Those who watched Jesus ascend to heaven (Mark 16.19,20; Luke 24.50-53; Acts 1.3-8).

12) Least of all Paul (outsider skeptic) with others present and as though he was not living in the proper time (1 Cor. 15.8-9; Gal. 1.13-16; Acts 9.1-8, 22.9, read all of chapters 22 and 26; 13.30-37; 1 Cor. 15.10-20; Gal. 2.1-10). “

My point of getting all of that information(All of this info can be backed up by The Bible, as you can see I put the Bible verses right next to the statements. ) is to say Jesus is ALIVE and WELL. Praying to anyone except for Jesus or God will lead you to hell because you are putting someone ahead of Jesus and he never put anyone ahead of us.

So many people ,particularly Roman Catholics, pray to people besides Jesus thinking they are doing something holy when in reality they are doing evil(idolatry).

We as Christians should fought ourselves for this because we have allowed pagan traditions to come into the church . (In one of my last post I did an article about celebrating Easter, Christmas ,and other holidays) .

Now that we have briefly discussed pagan holidays I am now going to discuss one of the most controversial topics of the 21st century and that is abortion .

If you are reading this now someone believed you deserved a chance so why not give that baby a chance? Nowadays people don’t look at it like that they think babies are just a big blob of fat but in reality they are as human as me and you.

The feminist have people believing that women should have the right to kill their children because they come from their body but if the same ideology was applied to the members of the feminist groups then they wouldn’t be here. Satan is here to kill, steal and destroy according to John 10:10 and that’s exactly what Planned Parenthood has been doing since their existence.

Planned Parenthood steals lives from  innocent babies,  they destroy future memories by taking the babies’ life and they kill the babies by destroying their bodies.  Doesn’t that sound like something Satan would do ?

The risks of abortion

People have been trying to justify evil doings since the beginning of the time and it definitely doesn’t end with Planned Parenthood. Last year Obama made the news because while he was at Planned Parenthood he said God bless Planned Parenthood.

This outraged many people as it should have because not only did he mock God but he(Obama) thinks abortion is something cool.

Planned Parenthood has such a unique name because it says that the Parenthood was planned but in reality its Planned Murder hood.  This is something we as  a nation should discuss because if we continue I allow this nation to murder innocent babies what legacy will we have?

A nation that kills its own future will have nothing left for the future.When I say kill it’s future I mean we are killing so many babies that their won’t be enough people to work to fund social security and other programs ;Of course you aren’t going to hear that on the mainstream media news you’re just going to hear a million reasons why women should be able to choose to murder their own children.

These are just a few things I want to discuss in this post but stay tuned because there’s so much more to come.

  1. Love your emphasis on Jesus this time. It’s what the center of the apostle’s teaching was, even with all the evil of their day – something to think about. “Jesus is the answer for the world today. Above Him there’s no other. Jesus is the Way!” God Bless you, Jeremy.
