pushing "faith hate crimes"
Christians we are fully aware that back when Jesus was walking among us on this
sin filled orb the Pharisees hated Him and His message to such an extent they
killed Him. Of course they had no idea He was going to rise again. Had they
known that, one has to wonder what they would do to try and quench the Gospel
message. His Words and actions, as
peaceful as they were, were such a threat to them due to Satan prodding their
hearts to fear. They did all they could to snuff out the Truth He
represented and preached.
Apostles themselves witnessed as much persecution as their Lord because they too
spoke the Truth as the Holy Spirit directed them to do. And again the Pharisees
did all they could to quite the Truth they were moved to share as well. Their
fear was so overpowering that they did things no sane person
would do. This wicked mind-set is still very much alive today.
The enemy of souls manipulates the
Truth to try and make it appear fearful in the hearts of those
it calls out to. Take the term "homo-phobe" for an example.
When this term is placed on Christians that seek to share the
Truth with homosexuals it is done so in an oxymoronic fashion.
The exact opposite it true. The real and quite undeniable truth
is, Christians don't fear homosexuals at all. If they did they
wouldn't bother with them at all. Reality dictates they actually
love them enough to tell them the truth so as to hopefully get
them to stop sinning. Christians love the idea of inviting more
people to live for eternity in Heaven. Once we meet Jesus we
can't contain the joy He gives us.
Something so loving and so Truthful
as the Gospel message is twisted by Satan in the minds of millions
to where they are moved to proclaim Christians homo-phobes when
in actuality the homosexual themselves fear Christ in a very
open and obvious manner. They know they cannot truthfully declare
the Christians fearful because the God we worship has declared
in 2 Timothy 1:7,
that He has "...not given us the spirit of fear; but of
power, and of love, and of a sound mind." There is so much
Truth stacked up for the Christian that it's sheer mountainous
appearance is fearful to those living the lie. Naturally they
lash out, and like the Vatican prelates they fear exposure.
The Christian is truthful when declaring
the sinner fearful because Scriptures repeatedly declare Satan's
agenda is to create fear in the hearts of man. Their actions
alone prove themselves Christ-less and in grave fear. One does
not find the fruit of fear in the heart of Christians that will
never see death.
speech has always been a major threat to those that hate the Truth. Especially
if the Truth is of the eternal nature that exposes their sin filled agenda. No
weapons of war are used by us to share this Heavenly message. No angry and hateful or
insulting words are used either. In fact, no threats of any kind are used when
the people of God share their faith with those that are in eternal peril. Yet
such peace loving Christians have historically become the biggest threat to
peace for those that hate simple God given Truth. This is why the Apostles of
old were commanded not to speak of Christ.
- Acts 4:17-18, "But that it spread no
further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak
henceforth to no man in this name. And
they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name
This fear of Christ and His church
we see new laws passed in
Canada and other lands where speaking to Homosexuals about Jesus Christ can
get you up to five years in jail. In fact there are many methods of restriction
being made known on every scale so as to stop this powerful
eternal Truth from spreading. I recall back many years ago when I was
helping a prison ministry computerize their office, word came down from
higher up that ministers speaking to prisoners inside Illinois jails warning
them of the dangers of Roman Catholicism can get their prison chaplain license to preach State-wide revoked. In Australia in July of 2008 the Vatican used their
global power to prevent anyone wearing T-shirts with Scriptures proving
Catholicism evil allowed in the World Youth day rally because they feared
the Truth would cause many to leave Rome. If they were caught
wearing such T-shirts they could be fined up to $5,500! Such fear! Christians going door
to door to share their faith are stopped by officials in Chicago stating doing so is "conducive to hate crimes."
The political leaders exposed themselves before many that day as being very fearful.
Back in May of 2007 the Vatican accused an Italian
comedian of "terrorism" for criticizing the Pope because the Truth
he was sharing in his act was cutting to the bone. Had it been
made up idiocies like most use, the Vatican would not have
cared less. But there was actual Truth in his comments and that
got their fearful hearts boiling. And now we see
the latest admission of fear from Rome...
SCOTS football fans who sing the Hokey Cokey could be committing a "faith
hate" crime, senior Catholics warned yesterday. ...They claim the
tune was composed by Puritans during the 18th century in an attempt to mock the
actions and language of priests leading Latin mass, and that its derisive
overtones have been revived by football fans. Now politicians have urged police to
arrest anyone using the song to "taunt" Catholics under legislation
designed to prevent incitement to religious hatred. ...But football fans and opposition politicians have blasted the claims,
describing them as "utter

has always been the norm for Rome and all her cohorts because Rome's agenda
is the prophesied endtime agenda the Christian Bible warned
of. Can you imagine that? If you were a powerful person and
you had plans to get people to worship you, and you would kill
as many as you can that wouldn't bow to you, you too would be
very fearful of a book that not only exposes your plans, but
it exposes them year by year and act by act. Worse yet, you
are unable to understand the book, but true Christians that
trust God can understand the prophecies, and these very same Christians
have an uncanny ability to share these facts with as many as
possible. Not only that, they also get that book published billions
of times worldwide and from day one that book has been the #1
best seller in all history. This is why they must make people
fearful of Christianity so they won't read Christian Bibles.
Rome knows all too well what happened in the past when the masses
started to read the Bibles. The people rebelled against the
anti-Christian Vatican and people fled her pews. They fear a
repeat of that happening. So much so, they put the Bible on
the index of forbidden books in 1229AD! (see
below) Anyone found with a Bible
after that date was killed to prevent the Truth they feared
from spreading. Their fear of
Christ and His blessed people is something that can be easily realized when
you read the
Vatican's statements that have been recorded for all to see over the last few hundred years...
Roman Catholics in France, by prearranged plan, under Jesuit
influence, murdered 70,000 Protestants within the space of two months.
The Pope rejoiced when he heard the news of the successful
outcome."-Western Watchman, Nov.21, 1912 (Catholic weekly)
was no village of the Vaudois valleys but had its martyrs. The Waldenses
were burned; they were cast into damp and horrid dungeons; they were smothered
in crowds in mountain caverns, mothers and babes, and old men and women
together; they were sent out into exile in the winter night, unclothed and
unfed, to climb the snowy mountains; they were hurled over the rocks; their
houses and lands were taken from them; their children were stolen to be
indoctrinated with the religion which they abhorred. Rapacious individuals
were sent among them to strip them of their property, to persecute and
exterminate them. Thousands of heretics" or Waldenses, "old
men, women and children, were hung, quartered, broken upon the wheel, or burned
alive and their property confiscated for the benefit of the king, and Holy See."-Thompson

teaches that there is no other remedy for the evil, but to put heretics
(Protestants) to death; for the (Romish) church proceeded gradually and
tried every remedy: at first she merely excommunicatied them; afterwards she
added a fine; then she banished them; and finally she was constrained to put
them to death." -Cardinal
Bellarmine famous champion of Romanism cited by Schumucker p. 76
professing faith contrary to the teachings of the Church of Rome,
history records the martyrdom of more then one hundred million people. A
million Waldenses and Albigenses [Swiss and French Protestants] perished
during a crusade proclaimed by Pope Innocent III in 1208. Beginning from the
establishment of the Jesuits in 1540 to 1580, nine hundred thousand were
destroyed. One hundred and fifty thousand perished by the
Inquisition in thirty years. Within the space of thirty-eight years after the
edict of Charles V against the Protestants, fifty thousand persons were
hanged, beheaded, or burned alive for heresy. Eighteen thousand more
perished during the administration of the Duke of Alva in five and a half
years."--Brief Bible Readings, p. 16.
the birth of popery to the present time, it is estimated by careful and
credible historians, that more than fifty millions of the human family, have
been slaughtered for the crime of heresy by popish persecutors,--an average
of more than 40,000 religious murders for every year of the existence of
popery to the present day. Of course the average number of victims yearly,
was vastly greater, during those gloomy ages when popery was in her
glory and reigned despot of the world; and it has been much less since the
power of the popes has diminished to tyrannize over the nations, and to compel
the princes of the earth, by the terrors of excommunication, interdiction, and
deposition, to butcher their heretical subjects."--John Dowling, The History of Romanism, pp. 541-542.
" 'The church,' says [Martin] Luther, 'has never burned a heretic.'
. . I reply that this argument proves not the opinion, but the ignorance or
impudence of Luther. Since almost infinite numbers were either burned or
otherwise killed, Luther either did not know it, and was therefore
ignorant, or if he was not ignorant, he is convicted of impudence and
falsehood,--for that heretics were often burned by the [Catholic Church may
be proved from many examples."--Robert

Mr. Raywood Frazier, in the booklet "Catholic Words and Actions,"
presents documentary proof of the intensive persecution of
Protestants and non-Catholics in Columbia, South America, between 1949 and 1953.
The Catholic Church had the support of the Columbian government in the destruction
of many churches, and the liquidation of more than 1,000 documented
cases -- some of whom were shot, drowned, or emasculated. He says
there is evidence of over 60,000 killed. Pope Pius XII awarded the
President of Columbia with one of the highest awards which the
Church bestows, and praised Columbia for its example of the Catholic

you Bible say about how we should treat our fellow man?
5:43-48, "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy
neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I
say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them
that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute
you; That ye may be the children of your
Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the
good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what
reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do
ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father
which is in heaven is perfect."
