This is an article that I came by the other day this is good example of why you need to understand the context of the scriptures. People need to check the verses that the altars pound you with this is nothing but evil. This is blasphemy no different from the pastor in Georgia that thinks we do not need the Old Testament anymore. God who created you was never into politics or socialism but salvation and redemption. Take a gander at why America is cursed and falling into darkness. It is all about money and power.
Isa. 5: 20
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Christians have a moral responsibility to speak out and teach people to say no to racism, xenophobia, exclusion and discrimination.
That conviction was at the heart of a Rome conference which brought together representatives of many different churches to find ways of combating the racism and populist nationalism that is on the rise in many countries today. The 18-20 September encounter was jointly organized by the World Council of Churches and the Vatican’s Office for Integral Human Development.
Among the participants speaking out most passionately about the need for a renewed commitment on the part of the churches was Rev. Traci Blackmon, pastor of a parish in St Louis, Missouri. She’s well-known nationally throughout the USA as head of the Justice and Witness Ministries of the United Church of Christ and a leader of the  Black Lives Matter movement.
She noted that while some people believe the church should not get involved in politics, she believes the birth of the Christ child in Bethlehem was “both a holy and political act”. The entire Jesus story is “one of human terror and divine mercy”, she said, since God “became human in the form of one who was vulnerable, poor and displaced in order to unveil the injustice of tyrannical power”.
Urging the church to be political but not partisan, Blackmon insisted that “Jesus had more in common with the children of refugees born today than we might like to imagine”. Criticising the current US government’s policy of almost halving the number of refugee admissions, she said the church must “recapture its prophetic zeal” and speak out against harmful policies or risk becoming “an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority”.
Since 1957, the United Church of Christ has been the church of firsts The UCC’s many “firsts” mean that we have inherited a tradition of acting upon the demands of our faith. When we read in Galatians: “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus”—a demand is made upon us. And so we were the first historically white denomination to ordain an African-American, the first to ordain a woman, the first to ordain an openly gay man, and the first Christian church to affirm the right of same-gender couples to marry.  We were in the forefront of the anti-slavery movement and the Civil Rights movement. Our response to the demands of our faith is woven into the history of our country.
[9a]Anthony Johnson (b. c. 1600 – d. 1670) was a black Angolan who achieved freedom in the early 17th-century Colony of Virginia after serving his term of indenture. He became a property owner that owned slaves, and was one of the first people in Virginia to have his right to own a slave legally recognized. Held as an indentured servant in 1621, he earned his freedom after several years, and was granted land by the colony. He attained great wealth after having been an indentured servant and has been referred to as “’the black patriarch’ of the first community of Negro property owners in America
Addressing the Brackets
- But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 1 Tim. 2: 9-13
- Black Lives Matter should be all lives matter this is nothing but hate. She hates her Father.
- human terror? ; the first commandment,” which is the greatest, Love your God”. Mat. 22: 37 – 39
- unveil the injustice of tyrannical power ? Is this when Christ confronted the church about worshiping pagan gods and the Lord at the same time? Mat.23: 1- 39
- “an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority”. This statement is true about what they teach. “And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end”. Mark 3:26
- ordain a woman ? 1 Tim 2: 9-13
- the first to ordain an openly gay man? Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 1 Cor. 6: 9
- right of same-gender couples to marry? 1 Cor. 6:9
- anti-slavery movement, menstealers are slave owner’s; For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 1 Tim 1:10
9a. Somehow Mr. Johnson did not know it was against the New Testament to own slaves, somehow the Black leadership fails to mention this fact that he was the first slave owner in America. I put this little tidbit of history in here because I am tired of the distortion that the white person was the only one that owned slaves. We were the only ones that got rid of slavery, the Protestant church at the time.
This church is the embodiment of the body of lies not from the seed of Abraham as Christ told the Pharisees . I did not have to judge anything the Word has already judged them and those who follow such hate rhetoric. They serve pagan gods and say they serve God a house divided will fall. All the church is doing is following the social atmosphere of America to prevent declining membership, no different then the Vatican, who but all shut down any call to step down for the sexual molestation cover ups. It is now being reported that a bishop in Brazil molested deaf children. This has been reported within the last week. So if you got down to it the body of the antichrist is quite large it is not just resigned to one person.
You can either arm yourself with the Truth or walk around like this other pastor who came up a new name for the Creator, ” Daddy Father”. If I was six years old I might go for that. So judge with the context of the Word and stand up the worst that can happen is they will kick you out of church.
Shalom from the land of darkness America
