Black Lives Matter Now Actively Targeting Christian Statues And Churches

from Humans Are Free:

The Black Lives Matter movement has begun actively targeting Christian statues and churches, expanding their historical revisionist drive, which initially only targeted statues of and places named after former Confederate officers.

In Washington, D.C., protesters have vandalized and illegally occupied St. John’s Episcopal Church, which is located across the street from the White House, and is where President Donald Trump, several weeks ago, held up a Bible after vandals occupied it.

FALSE PROPHET POPE FRANCIS GIVES EMMANUEL MACRON HIS BLESSING AND ANOINTS HIM TO TAKE THE GLOBAL STAGE AS LEADER OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

We have the False Prophet Pope Francis, operating with under a name stolen from God, giving his sulphuric blessing to Antichrist wannabe Emmanuel Macron, whose name literally means ‘God with us’. Macron wants to seize power of the New World Order, and both the UN Security Council and the Pontifex Maximus of Rome have signed off on it. Everyone of these end times villians are looking for all the world like they’re in training for the Revelation 13 Olympics. 18 months, people, 18 months.

VEGAS SHOOTING: It’s All About Trauma for Your Mind!

from FaceLikeTheSun:

The New World Order has been planned for decades, if not centuries. The recent events of chaos in our weather, combined with terrible acts of violence in public places are both an outcome, and symptom to a larger problem. The world systems are all broken because they are being run by imperfect humans (us). And while the elite attempt to escape the limits of this world, Jesus already defied it in His resurrection on our behalf. The trauma imposed upon our generation is deep and scarring. It will bring about a psychologically incoherent upheaval, capable of massive forms of technological deceptions.

Moscow’s ‘200 Churches’ Program Builds Its Biggest Church–So Far

0

from Russian Insider:

In 2010, the head of the Russian Church, Patriarch Kirill, stated that Moscow needs at least 200 more churches to accommodate the growing number of believers in the city–and compensate for the hundred churches that were razed during the Soviet times

The 60th and largest one has just been completed

This article originally appeared on a new site about the Christian renaissance in Russia, called Russian Faith. Their introductory video is at end of this article.

In 2010, the head of the Russian Church, Patriarch Kirill, stated that Moscow needs at least 200 more churches to accommodate the growing number of believers in the city–and compensate for the hundred churches that were razed during the Soviet times.

The program ‘200 Churches’ was created in order to fulfill out this mission.

Funded exclusively by donations,  its far-reaching goal is to make sure that all believers have churches ‘within walking distances’, especially those, who live far from the center of Moscow, in the newer areas of the ever-expanding city.

Thus far, 60 churches have already been completed.

While the first churches were built to accommodate 200-300 people, this year, the decision has been made to build churches for no fewer than 500 people.

The largest church so far has just been built in the southeast of the capital, Ria Novosti reports. The balconies, lower church and internal design of the church will be completed by the end of 2018.

The church, built in the classical style, will honor the Meeting of The Lord. It is 49 meters high, will fit in 1000 people and have 13 cupolas (domes).

Mass Exodus From The Church: The Percentage Of Young Adults With No Religious Affiliation Has Nearly QUADRUPLED Since 1986

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

We are witnessing a religious shift that is unprecedented in size and scope in American history.  With each passing year, the percentage of Americans that claim no religious affiliation is growing, and this trend is especially pronounced among our young people.  If things continue to steadily move in this direction, that is going to have enormous implications for the future of our society.  The United States was founded by people that were extremely committed to their faith, and now we are rapidly becoming a nation where people are choosing no religion at all.  We live at a time when there is a mass exodus from Christian churches, and while it is true that some smaller faiths are growing, the reality of the matter is that most of the people that are leaving are remaining unaffiliated.  According to PRRI, if you go back to 1991 only 6 percent of all Americans were “unaffiliated”, but today that number has shot up to 25 percent…

AS HIGH RANKING CATHOLIC CARDINAL THEODORE MCCARRICK RESIGNS OVER PEDOPHILIA ACCUSATIONS, NUNS WHO WERE RAPED COME FORWARD

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Pope Francis on Saturday accepted the resignation as a cardinal of Theodore McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington, D.C. and one of the U.S. Catholic Church’s most prominent figures, who has been at the center of allegations of sex abuse with minors and young seminarians.

Priests in the Catholic Church are not all homosexuals and pedophiles, now nuns from across the world are coming forward to recount horrific stories of sexual abuse by priests and other Catholic clergy. This news comes as Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, accused of sexual acts with both children and young seminarians, has become the first to lose his ‘red hat’ in modern times.

The Massive Communist Infiltration of the Catholic Church in the 1930s Caused the Current Pedophile Crisis

from Russia Insider:

The Stalinist anti-Christian mission is now about to reach its goal two generations after Stalin, at a time when the West is facing the second coming of Marxism … With a weakened and demoralized Church, the new atheism will face little if any resistance in the West as it begins to take control and subvert the remains of Christian culture.

The Catholic abuse crisis is likely no accident, but a strategy to ‘destroy church from within’

The Origin of the Separation of Church and State

0

by Jeff Thomas, International Man:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

Americans can be justifiably proud of their founding fathers’ insistence on a separation of Church and State. And, yet, surprisingly, very few Americans seem to understand what their founding fathers meant by this concept.

Conservative politicians take pride is saying that the US is, primarily, a Christian nation and that their Christian forefathers fought King George in order to have the freedom to practice Christianity as they saw fit.

Liberal politicians tend to take an opposing view—that separation of Church and State means that the concept of God has no place in government. In fact, some go so far as to say that landmarks, such as a plaque stating that George Washington attended a specific church, should be removed, as it compromises the separation of Church and State.

Unfortunately, both these groups have got it wrong.

So, let’s take a step back and have a look at what caused Thomas Jefferson to repeatedly insist that the separation be implemented in the US Constitution.

Mister Jefferson attended the College of William & Mary, where he received the university customary education, but went on to study law privately under George Wythe in Williamsburg, Virginia. Mister Wythe was not only his teacher, but his mentor, a man in his latter years who not only imparted knowledge to the young Jefferson, but wisdom. He frequented the Raleigh Tavern with his pupil, but additionally brought him to banquets at the mansion of Governor Fauquier, in an effort to expand his outlook. 

I believe that it’s safe to say that, when Mister Jefferson completed his education at age thirty-four, he had both the energy and imagination of youth and the wisdom of the elders at his command. The former gave him his drive and the latter provided him with the farsightedness that guided the writing of the American Constitution and the future direction of the new nation.

George Wythe lived conveniently next door to the Governor. (His home is still there today, as is his small study where he taught the future president.) On the other side of his home was Bruton Parish Church. In the 18th Century, one could not be elected to office unless he was a member of the Church of England. As Attorney General, Mister Wythe tolerated this, but taught his pupil that, as a free man, he should not be required to be an Anglican.

To add insult to injury, Mister Jefferson was not a Christian, but a Deist, as were several others of the founding fathers. He did believe in his own form of a God and even referred to him in the first sentence of the Declaration of Independence, but did not ascribe to him the power of miracles and omnipotence, as described in the Bible.

In addition, he regarded Jesus as an admirable human being, but did not regard him as anything more. (In later years, he would create his own Bible, by removing much of what he considered to be latter-day additions to the King James Bible, leaving little more than the words of Jesus.)

In spite of his beliefs, Mister Jefferson was required to be a (paid-up) member of the Anglican Church in order to sit in the House of Burgesses, and he chafed at this requirement.

However, he was a deep believer in the concept of God as a being with both consciousness and conscience, who he believed took no direct part in the affairs of man, but did create all men as equals and therefore entitled them to “certain unalienable Rights.”

But he saw the Church differently. He regarded it as a political organization, controlled by the King, intended to dictate morals and acceptable behaviour.

Head of Russian Church: Godless West is ‘Uprooting Faith From Society’

0

by James Bogardus, Russia Insider:

“We Russians are a people … who have passed through the difficult stages of denial of God’s existence and … have now turned to God  – and what we see is wonderful.”

This short excerpt is a particularly good example of the almost daily sermons the head of the Russian church, Kirill, gives as he travels around Russia. They are all broadcast on Russian Christian TV channels and on the internet and reach a wide audience.

Kirill is a remarkably good speaker. Here, he puts into a nutshell the stark spiritual divergence of Russia and the West.

Very interesting, and very revealing.

We are not sure of the date of this recording, but it is relatively recent.

Full transcript follows below:

Full Transcript:

We know that some developed and powerful countries, using their wealth and power, are trying to uproot faith from their societies.

That does not mean that the people of these countries no longer have faith, rather it is just harder and harder for them to confess it.

We are a people, Holy Rus, Russia, who have passed through the difficult stages of full denial of God’s existence and any presence of God in people’s lives, have now turned to God and what we see is wonderful.

U.S. Pastor Buys His Wife A Lamborghini As Pastors In Other Countries Are Beaten And Thrown In Prison

0

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Is it appropriate for a pastor to buy a $200,000 Lamborghini for his wife?  When news came out that Greenville pastor John Gray had given his wife a Lamborghini sports utility vehicle for their eighth anniversary, there was an explosion of outrage.  In response, Gray posted a video in which he unapologetically refused to back down.  He insisted that he was “a husband first” and that nobody had the right to criticize him for blessing his wife.  And without a doubt, we want husbands that are good to their wives, but what does it look like to the rest of the world when the pastor of a prominent megachurch flaunts the purchase of a brand new Lamborghini for his wife on Instagram?…

Pope Francis Calls for ‘Structural’ Change Activists to Take Advantage of Coronavirus Crisis in Easter Letter

by Tyler O’Neil, PJ Media:

On Easter Sunday, Pope Francis sent a letter to leaders of social movements promoting “structural changes” to the “economy of exclusion and inequality.” Among other things, he encouraged these activists to use the coronavirus crisis as an opportunity to spur radical change and launch a “humanistic and ecological conversion.” He also endorsed the idea of a universal basic income (UBI), championed by former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang.
