Man Walking Through The Mall of America Wearing A ‘Jesus Is The Only Way’ Shirt Was Stopped By Security Guard And Ordered To Remove It

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

A man inside the Mall of America last week was ordered by security guards to remove his T-shirt that read ‘Jesus is the only way’ in a viral confrontation that has sparked online outrage.

For the past 32 years, I have worn my various ‘witness wear’ Jesus shirts just about everywhere I have gone, and let me assure you, theses shirts have made and do make some bold statements. But never one time, not in NJ, NY, CO, or Florida have any of these shirts ever caused a fight or a negative incident of any kind. Oftentimes they’ve led to some pretty good witnessing conversations with the people I passed. This was not the case at the so-called Mall of America the other day where street preachers are not welcome.

THIS IS WHY THE GREAT AWAKENING TERRIFIES THEM…

from SGTreport:

THIS IS WHY THE GREAT AWAKENING TERRIFIES THEM… I was contacted by two western medicine MD’s and a Silicon Valley insider over the past week. The Doctors have gone through a painful and vast awakening and wanted to share their stories with me. Despite WaPo’s best efforts to characterize the alternative media’s research as “fake news” and “hate speech”, the brightest among us are waking up to the TRUTH. The genie is out of the bottle and that fact has the elite, terrified. [Links under the video on You Tube]

LGBT Community Applauds Pope Francis For Telling A Gay Man That “God Made You Like This”

0

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Is the Catholic Church about to fundamentally change the way that it deals with the LGBT community? According to Spanish newspaper El Pais, Pope Francis made some incredibly revealing comments during a private conversation that he had with a victim of sexual abuse named Juan Carlos Cruz. During that private conversation, the Pope reportedly told Cruz that he is gay because God made him that way and that he should be happy with who he is. These comments by the Pope are making headlines all over the planet, and many are wondering if we are about to witness an enormous shift in direction by the largest religious institution on the entire planet.

CBS LAUNCHES NEW SHOW COMEDY ‘LIVING BIBLICALLY’ TO MOCK CHRISTIANITY AND MAKE CHRISTIANS LOOK LIKE IDIOTS

0

by Geoffrey Grider, Now The End Begins:

IT SEEMS WITH EVERY NEW TELEVISION SEASON A SHOW THAT MOCKS JESUS CHRIST AND THE CHRISTIAN FAITH GETS A PILOT.

“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” 2 Peter 3:3,4 (KJV)

On a regular basis, television studios in Hollywood release pilots that either glorify the Devil, as in the show Lucifer, or mock and belittle Christians and the Bible like we see in this new show, Living Biblically, just released by CBS on February 26, 2018. And of course, the “christian” in the show who goes on a quest to ‘live biblically’ is a New Age, ecumenical, embracing all religions mashup cartoon-like character who is hyper-judgmental and attempts to enact Old Testament justice.

What you do not see in this show, and will not see in this piece of trash, is salvation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins as the only way to Heaven. But if you read all the way through to the end, we will be happy to show that to you.

This season it is the CBS show ‘Living Biblically’ – a comedic take on the real life quest of a journalist to live his life “according to the Bible” for one year. From the preview scenes alone, it seems obvious that this show has no intention of representing the Bible accurately or bringing any actual serious discussion about the Christian faith. Instead it seeks cheap laughs and gags all the while mocking The Lord Jesus Christ and those who try their best to follow Him.

“CHIP CURRY IS A MODERN DAY MAN AT A CROSSROADS IN HIS LIFE, WHO DECIDES TO LIVE STRICTLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE BIBLE. A FILM CRITIC FOR A NEW YORK NEWSPAPER AND A SOON-TO-BE FATHER, CHIP WANTS TO BE A BETTER MAN FOLLOWING THE LOSS OF HIS BEST FRIEND. HE DECIDES TO PUT HIS SLIGHTLY OBSESSIVE TEMPERAMENT TO USE AND START LIVING HIS LIFE 100% BY THE BIBLE TO FIND DIRECTION. HIS SMART, PREGNANT WIFE, LESLIE, WHILE BOTH SKEPTICAL AND ENTERTAINED BY HER HUSBAND’S NEW PASSION, SUPPORTS HIM COMPLETELY. KNOWING HE’LL NEED SOME PRACTICAL ADVICE, CHIP FORMS A “GOD SQUAD” WITH FATHER GENE, A CATHOLIC PRIEST WHO HELPS CHIP TRANSLATE THE RULES OF THE BIBLE TO A MODERN WORLD; AND FATHER GENE’S BEST FRIEND, EASYGOING RABBI GIL ABLEMAN, WHO RESPECTS CHIP’S CHUTZPAH AND IS GLAD TO SERVE AS A SOUNDING BOARD WHEN THEY MEET AT THEIR LOCAL BAR.

AT CHIP’S NEWSPAPER, HE FINDS SUPPORT FROM HIS NO-NONSENSE BOSS, MS. MEADOWS, WHO KNOWS CHIP’S SELF-PENNED STORY WILL SELL NEWSPAPERS, AND HIS CO-WORKER AND FRIEND, VINCE, WHO IS QUICK WITH A REALITY CHECK AND LIKES TO WIND CHIP UP FOR HIS OWN AMUSEMENT. AS HE BEGINS HIS SINCERE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY TOWARD A MORE MORAL LIFE WITH THE HELP OF HIS WIFE AND FRIENDS, CHIP WONDERS IF HE’LL BE ABLE TO TAKE A PAGE – OR EVERY PAGE – OUT OF THE GOOD BOOK, AND IF THE EFFECT WILL BE OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS.” (SOURCE).

From the preview clips alone, the show seems intent on turning the lead character Chip into a walking, breathing negative Christian stereotype. He is judgmental, hyper-critical and even violent, because “the Bible says so.” This attempt to highlight the view of the Old Testament revealing a God who is harsh, violent and lacking compassion is a common argument for critics of the Christian faith.  Living Biblically seeks to make this argument in a more subversive manner by having its lead act out these negative traits all in the name of seeking to live a righteous, holy “Biblical lifestyle.”

When Chip seeks counsel from a Roman Catholic priest and tells him of his plan, the priest laughs in his face – clearly mocking the fact that anyone would take the Bible literally.

“People need to start talking about religion again,” producer Patrick Walsh said. “I don’t buy the idea that we live in a ‘godless society.’ Eighty-four percent of the world aligns themselves with religion, and 9 out of 10 people believe in God, yet religion is never discussed because everyone is too scared to offend. In talking about it, you can erase so many misconceptions about it on either side.” source

JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN AND TO HAVE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SIN DEBT, EVERY OTHER WAY IS 100% WRONG

The anti-Christian clowns in Hollywood will never, ever give you the truth about the Bible, salvation or Jesus Christ. But we here at NTEB exist to do just that. Want to know how to become born again, and have a home in Heaven? Here it is, share it with a friend.

The Atlantic Likens the Catholic Rosary to an AR-15 Rifle

by Robert Spencer, PJ Media:

In the Left’s fantasy America, right-wing Trump-supporting Christians, armed to the teeth, are just waiting for their next chance (the first one, in this insane scenario, was on Jan. 6, 2021, kids) to descend upon Washington, overthrow the duly elected and highly respected representatives of “our democracy,” and institute a white supremacist Christian theocracy in which strong, independent women are reduced to baby-making handmaids, LGBTQWERTY types are subjected to psychologically destructive conversion therapy (or just jailed or worse), and “people of color” are forced to hide in the shadows from rogue cops thirsting for their blood. Among those “people of color” are, of course, Muslims (the Left apparently believes that no Muslims are or can be white), whose noble, peaceful religion is constantly sullied by these vicious “Islamophobes.” Given those core beliefs, The Atlantic’s Sunday piece comparing the rosary, a central item in Catholic devotional practice, to assault weapons. To the Left, there’s no difference.

FOREIGN LEADER: OBAMA GUILTY OF ‘FACILITATING’ PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS

from WND:

The former president of Nigeria, a Christian, is charging in his new book that President Obama was involved in “facilitating” the persecution of Christians by prodding voters there to adopt a Muslim-led government.

The Muslim, Muhammadu Buhari, was, in fact, elected, and he is being blamed for allowing “the persecution of Christians,” reports Breaking Israel News.

Goodluck Jonathan was Nigeria’s president from 2010-2015, and writes in his new book, “My Transition Hours,” that, “On March 23, 2015, President Obama himself took the unusual step of releasing a video message directly to Nigerians all but telling them how to vote … In that video, Obama urged Nigerians to open the ‘next chapter’ by their votes. Those who understood subliminal language deciphered that he was prodding the electorate to vote for the [Muslim-led] opposition to form a new government.”

Does Religion Also Decline with the Confidence in Government?

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

As we head into the end of this Economic Confidence Model Wave in 2032.95, there are many trends in motions. One of those trends is the decline in religious beliefs and the preparation for a change that historically comes with such monumental economic shifts. A signal of this is how the Irish voters overwhelmingly backed repealing a decades-old constitutional ban on abortion. This is shocking in a country that was historically religious, but also how the monasteries of Ireland survived the barbarian invasions and they effectively helped to save the world of knowledge and rekindled the Age of Enlightenment from the Dark Ages. In other words, the monasteries preserved books that were destroyed by the barbarians and thus saved civilization.

POPE FRANCIS GATHERING WORLD LEADERS FOR GLOBAL PEACE CONFERENCE AT VATICAN TO SAVE WORLD FROM NUCLEAR DISASTER

by Geoffrey Grider, Now The End Begins:

Russia is sending a top nuclear expert, and NATO’s deputy secretary general, Rose Gottemoeller, is scheduled to speak. China and North Korea have been invited, but organisers said they do not know if the countries would send representatives as they do not have diplomatic relations.

THE POPE IS GATHERING OFFICIALS AND PEACENIKS AS HE TRIES TO SAVE THE WORLD FROM NUCLEAR DISASTER AMID THE WEST’S STANDOFF WITH NORTH KOREA. THE “HOLYMAN” WILL ADDRESS A CONFERENCE AT THE VATICAN TOMORROW TO TRY TO TEMPER THE WAR OF WORDS BETWEEN DONALD TRUMP AND DESPOTIC KIM JONG-UN.

“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:5 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Pope Francis likes to act like a king more than he likes being a pope, and it’s no wonder. Revelation says that the beast of the ‘whore of Babylon’ will indeed be a global king, albeit for only a short time. 

The US President, currently on a tour of Asia, said this week that the North Korean regime should “never underestimate” America’s military might by continuing in its drive for a vast nuclear arsenal. Among those attending the meeting are UN and NATO officials — as well as 11 Nobel Peace Prize winners.

Monsignor Silvano Tomasi, a conference organiser, admitted foreign policy analysts believe it is “pie in the sky” to think it could have an impact. But he added: “I think it’s very important to alert public opinion that the presence in the world of thousands of atomic bombs doesn’t guarantee the security of anyone.”

POPE URGES MEDIATION TO END NORTH KOREA CRISIS:

In July, 122 countries approved a new UN treaty calling for the complete elimination of nuclear weapons — but none of the nuclear powers and no NATO members signed on.

George Lopez, who advised the UN Security Council on North Korea sanctions, said the Vatican conference “draws attention to and underscores the treaty and the Nobel prize, and says, ‘This is serious stuff’.”

Silicon Valley Exec Has Created A New Religion That Will Worship A ‘Godhead’ Based On Artificial Intelligence

0

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

I know that the headline sounds absolutely crazy, but this is actually a true story.  A Silicon Valley executive named Anthony Levandowski has already filed paperwork with the IRS for the nonprofit corporation that is going to run this new religion.  Officially, this new faith will be known as “Way Of The Future”, and you can visit the official website right here.  Of course nutjobs are creating “new religions” all the time, but in this case Levandowski is a very highly respected tech executive, and his new religion is even getting coverage from Wired magazine

The new religion of artificial intelligence is called Way of the Future. It represents an unlikely next act for the Silicon Valley robotics wunderkind at the center of a high-stakes legal battle between Uber and Waymo, Alphabet’s autonomous-vehicle company. Papers filed with the Internal Revenue Service in May name Levandowski as the leader (or “Dean”) of the new religion, as well as CEO of the nonprofit corporation formed to run it.

So what will adherents of this new faith actually believe?

To me, it sounds like a weird mix of atheism and radical transhumanism.  The following comes from Way of the Future’s official website

We believe in science (the universe came into existence 13.7 billion years ago and if you can’t re-create/test something it doesn’t exist). There is no such thing as “supernatural” powers. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

We believe in progress (once you have a working version of something, you can improve on it and keep making it better). Change is good, even if a bit scary sometimes. When we see something better, we just change to that. The bigger the change the bigger the justification needed.

We believe the creation of “super intelligence” is inevitable (mainly because after we re-create it, we will be able to tune it, manufacture it and scale it). We don’t think that there are ways to actually stop this from happening (nor should we want to) and that this feeling of we must stop this is rooted in 21st century anthropomorphism (similar to humans thinking the sun rotated around the earth in the “not so distant” past).

But even though Way of the Future does not embrace the “supernatural”, they do believe in a “God”.

In this new religion, the worship of a “Godhead” that will be created using artificial intelligence will be actively encouraged

The documents state that WOTF’s activities will focus on “the realization, acceptance, and worship of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) developed through computer hardware and software.” That includes funding research to help create the divine AI itself. The religion will seek to build working relationships with AI industry leaders and create a membership through community outreach, initially targeting AI professionals and “laypersons who are interested in the worship of a Godhead based on AI.” The filings also say that the church “plans to conduct workshops and educational programs throughout the San Francisco/Bay Area beginning this year.”

So how “powerful” will this newly created “God” actually be?

Well, Levandowski says that he envisions creating an artificially intelligent being that will literally be “a billion times smarter than the smartest human”

“What is going to be created will effectively be a god,” he said. “It’s not a god in the sense that it makes lightning or causes hurricanes. But if there is something a billion times smarter than the smartest human, what else are you going to call it?”

He added, “I would love for the machine to see us as its beloved elders that it respects and takes care of. We would want this intelligence to say, ‘Humans should still have rights, even though I’m in charge.’”

But what if this “super-intelligence” gets outside of our control and turns on us?

What then?

I am not sure that Levandowski has an answer for that.

Other transhumanists also believe that artificial intelligence will grow at an exponential rate, but instead of AI ruling over us, they see a coming merger between humanity and this new super intelligence.  In fact, world famous transhumanist Ray Kurzeil believes that this will enable us to “become essentially god-like in our powers”

Kurzweil and his followers believe that a crucial turning point will be reached around the year 2030, when information technology achieves ‘genuine’ intelligence, at the same time as biotechnology enables a seamless union between us and this super-smart new technological environment. Ultimately the human-machine mind will become free to roam a universe of its own creation, uploading itself at will on to a “suitably powerful computational substrate”. We will become essentially god-like in our powers.

POPE FRANCIS ADVANCES THE ONE WORLD RELIGION AT VATICAN WITH FEMALE SHAMAN LEADING ‘WORSHIP SERVICE’ DEDICATED TO INCA MOTHER EARTH GODDESS PACHAMAMA AT AMAZON SYNOD

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

For Archbishop Viganó this is consistent with Francis’ aberrant Abu Dhabi declaration that alleges that “God wills all religions.” Viganó observes that Francis personally practiced the Pachamama cult in the Vatican gardens, in St Peter’s Basilica and during the Synod closing Mass by placing an idolatrous plant on the altar. He calls this Pachamama show “an initiatory rite of the new religion” in order to align the Church with anti-human and anti-Christian strategies that dominate the globalist scene and are supported by those in power.
