“The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? ” (Jeremiah 17:9)
In my dealings and writings with the unregenerate and Godless, I am constantly told that good men need religion to become evil. Darwinism, evolution, atheism has so attacked the minds of some that they are completely blind to the fact that fallen human nature in mankind is what is causing so much pain and anxiety in the world. To these people, science is the way forward, and science will provide all the answers. When I point out that Adam was the first scientist some of them go berserk. God gave Adam the job of naming the creatures, and that was a work of science, and was God’s way for man to interact with creation. One man complained to me that one has to observe, test and so forth to call it science. I pointed out that that is exactly what Adam did. So the man turned the argument around and said that you don’t have to observe something just to give it a name, one can name something without observing it. The argument made no sense, but to him it was quite logical. That is the unregenerate heart of man at work, it is deceitful, and it is wicked and it denies there is a God and Creator. In the case of the atheist, he trusts a belief system based on man, and that man is god; and as such, man will discover all the answers through science. Therein lies another problem. The science he follows is not the science of Adam; much of it is the false science of the guru, Darwin and evolution. It has led to abortion. Let me stop at this point for a moment.
There has been a tremendous amount of self-righteousness rising to the surface concerning the ISIS beheadings, of Westerners in particular. Emotions rise and the finger is pointed at these inhuman terrorists; and it is as if we in the West are innocent of any barbarism. I am not harping back to the Crusades and other wars as some have done. I am coming much nearer home, right up to the last century and this 21st Century. Atheistic belief, that we in the West have succumbed to at the expense of Christianity and the way of Jesus Christ, led us to abortion. The unborn has been hacked to death in the mother’s womb, not by the jihadist’s knife or sword, but by the surgeon’s scalpel. It has become a form of birth control. Darwin’s and Hitler’s eugenics, the “less-than-human” false science approach to life has taken root in Britain. We name the baby in the womb, a foetus; we don’t call it a baby. We say it has not yet developed into a human, so we are not killing a person, we are removing a thing. We come up with these terms so that we, in our deceitfully wicked hearts, are not murderers; we are simply carrying out a medical procedure. How many innocent (that is the term used for the victims of Jihadist murderers), victims have we in the West murdered by one system of killing or another?
It doesn’t finish with abortion. Atheism and the false science of Darwin and his followers are introducing euthanasia. Another nice sounding term, as is “mercy killing”. It is to legally murder those that are no longer useful to anyone. Some atheists propose killing those whose thoughts do not line up with theirs, such as Christians whose belief system they hate and despise.
Strange as it may seem, atheism and Islam have much in common and we will consider how in just a moment.
Atheist Sam Harris suggests perhaps some people ought to be punished, even killed, on account of the very beliefs they hold.
“Some propositions are so dangerous that it may even be ethical to kill people for believing in them. This may seem an extraordinary claim, but it merely enunciates an ordinary fact about the world in which we live. Certain beliefs place their adherents beyond the reach of every peaceful means of persuasion, while inspiring them to commit acts of extraordinary violence against others. There is, in fact, no talking to some people. If they cannot be captured, and often they cannot, otherwise tolerant people may be justified in killing them in self-defence.” (Sam Harris, “End of Faith”)
We are not a million miles away from this happening. Christianity is being outlawed, and Christians and Christian organisations are being catalogued as being promoters of hate. The Prime Minister of Britain, and the British government are ‘Christanophobic’, and Christians should stand up and say so. The government panders to 1.6 of the population, and that 1.6 is more important than any other grouping, in the Conservative government’s eyes. If you mention homosexuality, straight away someone will charge you with being homophobic. It is a ploy to prevent debate taking place, and it is a ploy our government now uses. There should be a surge of challenge from the church over the mind-controlling effects they are introducing into schools and society as a whole. But the only opposition to government at the present time is another political party, UKIP. The charge now is that if one votes for UKIP, one is obviously a racist. This is Cameron’s camaraderie. The Church, on the other hand, is largely silent.
The Christian apologist, John Lennox, who regularly debates well-known atheists such as Richard Dawkins, has said he wants to encourage Christians not to be silent about their faith in the face of “militant atheism” and a secular culture. Lennox went on to say that the “new atheist onslaught is beginning to wane” but that “Dawkins et al are still wreaking havoc in the minds of young people”. Our politicians appear not to have caught up with the atheist onslaught being on the wane. They are intent on stuffing the minds of our children with humanism. As the children grow up under that influence they will have no place for God in their lives. It is a satanic attack on our children, as satanic as the attack on those that were physically slaughtered by King Herod.
They are “always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 3:7), because they change the truth for a lie and worship things made – “They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator – who is forever praised. Amen.” (Romans 1:25)
Christians have the word of God and the power of God in the Holy Spirit to speak out, and to stand; both of which are necessary for the world to see that Jesus Christ is Lord in our lives, and in Creation. Christians should not be silent, and should not be hidden. Homosexuals know what it is to “come out”. Christians must “come out”.
If one speaks against Islam, one is Islamophobic; which again, closes down debate.
Those things that have been gaining ground at pace are atheism/humanism and Islam, both of which cannot be contended because of political correctness. Schools are having to teach evolution as fact. Out of that develops the issues that man is god, and there is no Creator. Because there is no Creator God, you cannot teach that there is. From the atheistic belief system comes, killing-on-demand in its various ‘legal’ forms. On the sex scene, do what comes naturally to you.
The Humanist Manifesto II states:
“In the area of sexuality, we believe that intolerant attitudes, often cultivated by orthodox religions and puritanical cultures, unduly repress sexual conduct. The right to birth control, abortion, and divorce should be recognized.”
They go on to include:
“in vitro fertilisation, surrogate motherhood, genetic engineering, organ transplantation, and cloning,” and the Humanist Manifesto 2000 – “We cannot look back to the moral absolutes of the past for guidance here. We need to respect autonomy of choice.” (Kurtz, “Humanist Manifesto 2000).
The former USSR used to incarcerate Christians and lock them away in psychiatric units to be re-programmed in soviet doctrine. Many died at the hands of their tormentors. This is future Britain if we continue along the road we are presently travelling.
Because the Humanist Association (BHA) were allowed to hijack a government consultation in March of this year, as part of new regulations, the Government intends to remove funding from ‘early years’ education providers (e.g. nurseries) which do not teach a particular form of evolutionary theory. This has big implications for Christian nurseries and schools as well as for the more general principles of educational freedom.
Launching the updated Regulations in August, the new Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan, said: “There can be no place for extremist views anywhere in the education system. The changes we are making today will ensure that all early years providers and schools are aligned with the need to protect children from views that are considered extreme.” The government however are the new extremist, and are teaching our children extreme and unproven views, while claiming that teaching creation is linked with extreme views! Our nation is to be turned from free thinking to indoctrination by the State.
Let us consider some of the similarities that exist between Atheism and Islam.
Islam – if you do not subscribe to the Islamic belief system you are a dhimmi, and you can even be beheaded as some are being today.
Atheism – If you do not subscribe to this belief system, you are at best a peddler of hate, and some atheists are advocating that such people should be killed.
Killing those that do not subscribe to their belief systems are developing trends in both Islam and Atheism.
Both belief systems deny the existence of the God of the Bible, and state that God does not have a Son. One atheist fellow arguing his case with me said that the Muslim God is the same as the Christian God. He said that the Muslims believe in the god of Abraham as it is declared in Scripture. I pointed out to him that the Bible describes God as being the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They hear these things or they find them on the Internet, but they will not go to the Bible to find the truth, just as they will not go to Jesus who is the Truth.
Islam – Paedophilia is permitted in the Koran. Mohammed married Aisha when she was six years old, and she was admitted to his house at the age of nine. Mohammed was in his 50s at the time.
Atheism – The atheist, Russell argues that absolutely no knowledge should be withheld even from children, especially in the case of sexuality: “There is no sound reason, of any sort or kind, for concealing facts when talking to children. . . . All ignorance is regrettable, but ignorance on so important a matter as sex is a serious danger. When I say that children should be told about sex, I do not mean that they should be told only the bare physiological facts; they should be told whatever they wish to know. There should be no attempt to represent adults as more virtuous than they are, or sex as occurring only in marriage. . . . I am convinced that complete openness on sexual subjects is the best way to prevent children from thinking about them excessively, nastily, or unwholesomely, and also the almost indispensable preliminary to an enlightened sexual morality.”
Again, he writes,
“I do not think there can be any defence for the view that knowledge is ever undesirable. I should not put barriers in the way of the acquisition of knowledge by anybody at any age.”
After pausing again to rally for sexual freedom, he repeats,
“There is no rational ground of any sort or kind for keeping a child ignorant of anything that he may wish to know, whether on sex or on any other matter.”
Such an overbearing curiosity begets an overturned theology. Trading Christianity for atheism, says Onfray,
“will require us to set aside obedience and submission in matters of religion and to reactivate an ancient taboo: tasting the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge.”
Again referring to sex, Russell argues,
“It is ridiculous to give young people a sense of sin because they have a natural curiosity about an important matter.”
Paedophilia is not yet a lawful activity, but if we follow the atheist agenda, it will eventually become law. If Islam becomes ruler of Britain, paedophilia, though awful, will become lawful. Bigamy is another Islamic practice. In Germany, laws forbidding incest should be removed according to a top Government Committee, which says it is “not appropriate for a criminal law to preserve a social taboo”.
For the atheist, superstitious morality impedes pleasure. In other words, it obstructs sex. Christopher Hitchens laments, “Almost every sexual impulse has been made the occasion for prohibition, guilt, and shame.” According to Russell, “The worst feature of the Christian religion, however, is its attitude toward sex.” Harris softens the tone for reasoning to Christian parents: “Your efforts to constrain the sexual behaviour of consenting adults— and even to discourage your own sons and daughters from having premarital sex— are almost never geared toward the relief of human suffering.”
In Islam, sex appears to rate very highly among jihadists as they rape their way through enemy lines. There have been a few dissenting voices among Muslims in the UK concerning the beheading of Alan Hemmings; but there has been no significant uprising in the Muslim population over the many beheadings that are taking place in the Middle East, and the raping of women. It appears to be generally accepted practice.
Atheism, in seeking to rule the hearts and minds of men, is inadvertently opening the door to the rule of Allah and Islam. The politically correct agenda introduced by Western leaders against their citizens has closed the door on reasonable scrutiny and inquiry.
A report on the US and Canada states that they are teaming up with Islamists.
A handbook entitled United Against Terrorism, supposedly aimed at preventing youth radicalization, was endorsed last week by the US Department of State, according to a report by Andrew McCarthy in National Review Online.
The handbook, however, released at a mosque in Winnipeg (Manitoba), Canada, is an alarming joint venture between the Royal Canadian Mounted Police [RCMP] and the National Council of Canadian Muslims [NCCM], formerly CAIR-CAN – now conveniently renamed – which has connections to terrorism.
CAIR-CAN is the Canadian branch of CAIR [Council on American–Islamic Relations], which was designated an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the largest terrorist financing trial in US history – the Holy Land Foundation trial.
The handbook recommends discontinuing the use of the words “jihad” and “terrorism,” and balks at the use of the word “moderate” to describe Muslims.
Counter-terrorism specialist and lawyer David Harris testified that “there are many individuals and groups who masquerade” as moderates, who are really “faux-moderates.”
“[T]heir [Muslims’] work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands… so that God's religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.” — Mohamed Akram, Muslim Brotherhood operative.
Western nations are moving from freedom to slavery, democratically.
