Jack Van Impe: False Preacher Sissyfying The Gospel

Posted by soldierservant on May 16, 2007

I just heard some of him when just flipping through. He falsely teaches that this world will not end when the Bible is very clear that it will. His word says that this world will be destroyed by fire, that everything will be consumed. Then there is the scripture that says heaven and earth will pass away but God remains. It also says that there will be a new heaven and a new earth. How can there be a new earth unless the old one is destroyed? I think he is also into that christian science garbage by making Christ’s return totally positive. He didn’t get that from the Holy Bible because it clearly says that Jesus will return with the armies of heaven and slay the wicked with the sword of his mouth and
that the birds and the beasts will feast off the carcasses of kings. There is most definite confrontation, of course all in His favor,but it won’t be pretty. Even afterward at the end of the new millennium when Satan is released from the abyss for a short time there
will be a rebellion in which God will consume them by fire. I get so tired of these false teachers sissifying the gospel. Just like all these religious right that want to censor all violence from movies. Violence is just a part of reality and to deny it is to lie and promote vain imaginations against the knowledge of God. The Bible is one of the most bloodiest books ever,whether it is the crusifiction of Christ, old testament wars and sacrifices, or the judgments of the damned. If it was up to the religious right they would censor the Bible and thus take away the price Jesus paid and deny His suffering. This type of propaganda is downright communistic and antichrist. I guess it is for good reason that they are called the religious right instead of the christian right. They are modern pharisees. Also Jack went on to say that after a thousand years Christ will be recommissioned. What for? Something has to happen or else he would just continue on. That is when the earth will be destroyed by fire and the wicked dead judged. Everything will be new then. It has always been God’s rules to absolutely purge all wickedness. That is why He had the kings of old testament burn the bones of the wicked. Wickedness is a contamination that has to be purged and to say otherwise (like Jack says) is to mock God. About Jerry Falwell I am not
sure if he was a adamant Bush supporter so I try to avoid judgmentalism. I know he was one of the very few religious leaders that said 9/11 was judgment from God over abortion. I am not sure if he retracted that statement or not. I know others did like Pat Robertson. When he got flack over that he apologized. There are hardly any real men left. They are all spineless wimps. Those who have any apology over the truth won’t enter God’s kingdom.

American Idolatry

Posted by soldierservant on May 16, 2007

It seems like no matter where I turn, whether it is conservative, liberal, or independent, all seem to despise true Christianity. There was a talk show host that I listened to quite
regularly that would point out all the stuff that was hushed up on the Bushbot shows. He even nicknamed Rush as Hush Bimbo. When it comes to the subject of the truth of the gospel he flat out denied it and said that anyone that believed like that was no different than the jihadists. There is so much hatred for Christ that it comes from all sides. The
simpleminded think that persecution is only going to come from the left have got a rude awakening coming to them. I believe it will come from the right even more so.Just think about it. The locksteppers want to crush all that they perceive to be threatening to their freedom, bigoted, of fascistic. Nowhere has in recent times any christian forced conversion on anyone like the muslim extremists but yet they want to label the true christians as terrorist just from our mere belief.You talk about intolerance.But it is not just from this independent I heard this. I have heard that Rush (who does claim to be Christian, but his fruits expose him for what he is) had a similar reaction when he had on Jerry Falwell
or Billy Graham when they said that Jesus was the only way and Rush got indignant and thought that was  a biggoted statement. Oh there are so many that claim to be Christian that know nothing about God or His Word. I am talking about just the very basics of salvation. How dare these blasphemers take Christ’s name and oppose everything about Him. It would have been better for the likes of Rush to not have been born than to bring such reproach to His name.Man,it appears that we can’t go into the deeper things of God (except on our own) when we have to continually deal with the very basics of Christianity. People are either hopelessly stupid or jaded beyond all rational reasoning. How can anyone claim to be of Christ and not support what he says? What is the point? It is like
pretending to be a buddhist but knowing nothing about him. Names and labels have become so meaningless in this day and age. All those who embrace any other doctrine rejects the truth and is headed for eternal destruction. The gospel of Christ gets falsely labeled as just another religion when it is not religion,it is truth.In fact somewhere in the
Bible speaks of witchcraft as that old religion. People need to think about some of the songs that they mindlessly sing, like “GIVE ME THAT OLD TIME RELIGION”. That may very well be a song about witchcraft. This independent that I mentioned is a Jew, so it figures since most reject Christ. The Bible even says when it talks about to the jew first and then gentile is not only for positive but also negative too. The jew will be punished first, so the likes of this independent christ hating jew will will suffer before christians will.This is why the jihadists target jews before christians. It is the old Ishmael versus Isaac war. The terrorist intentions are to first take out Israel and then the USA.They are well to having their way if neither country repents. If God has no trouble punishing His own chosen people what makes these foolish hypocrites think that we are above God’s judgment? If the nazi holocaust happened to God’s chosen people then who do these prideful fools think they are that they are not going to suffer too? The church during the holocaust was a bunch of cowards and is why such a dreadful thing happened. The very same will happen in this country if the chrch don’t repent of all it’s lies and cowardice.If the church keeps on supporting this antichrist of a president then they will partake in his judgment!God will not keep on tolerating this arrogance and blasphemy from this idolatrous country. Patriotism in itself has become idolatrous because people worship this
country over God. I believe the Statue of Liberty is an american idol. Idiots that think they are free are more of a slave then ever. They are so full of fear (which God did not give us) of terrorism that they’d give up their freedoms. What a nation of morons and cowards that will get what it deserves. I heard about some of the debates when the candidates talked about 9/11 and Ron Paul responded by saying that we sort of brought it on ourselves, and boy all the locksteppers went crazy. Nobody is willing to repent so sure destruction is coming. If 9/11 or Hurricane Katrina didn’t change anybody then nothing will. I believe God is taking His hand of protection off this country when we have proud blasphemers that even come in Christ’s name and mock all that his word stands for, who among these has any hope of escape? While there seems to be a few candidates that seem to be good on immigration there is no mention of their stance on supporting Israel. If the church remains silent in supporting Israel they will bring on them the same curse as God promised Esther if she remained silent (Esther 4:14). One of the christian bands I like had a song a few years back call STATUE OF LIBERTY. This song brought up the idea that the statue of liberty is an american idol. That people worshipped freedom over God, like the scripture that says men will be lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. Also was stating that man’s freedom was freedom to sin and that God’s freedom was freedom from
sin. God is not going to continue to put up with this americanism. Those that are truely Christ’s are His first. We do not belong to ourselves but to christ. Those in Christ do not belong to a country.This world as well as this country will pass away. America is not eternal, only God and His kingdom is!

No Sanctuary For Illegal Aliens At Our Church

Posted by soldierservant on May 16, 2007

For the past several days, news reports have been circulating throughout the
mainstream media regarding the decision by several churches to provide
“sanctuary” to illegal aliens. For example, a Fox News report dated May 9,
2007 said, “Two churches intend to give sanctuary to illegal immigrants to
protect them from deportation and pressure lawmakers to provide a chance at
U.S. citizenship.

“Beginning Wednesday afternoon, a Catholic church in downtown Los Angeles
and a Lutheran church in North Hollywood each intend to shelter one person
as part of the ‘New Sanctuary Movement.’

“A handful of churches in other U.S. cities plan similar efforts in the
months ahead to spotlight the plight of illegal immigrants.”

The report continued by saying, “In New York, religious leaders gathered at
the Roman Catholic Church of St. Paul the Apostle and said their promise of
sanctuary could include financial assistance, legal help and physical
protection, if necessary.

“‘For us, sanctuary is an act of radical hospitality, the welcoming of the
stranger who is like ourselves, the stranger in our midst, our neighbors,
our friends,’ said Rabbi Michael Feinberg of the Greater New York
Labor-Religion Coalition.”

However, as a veteran pastor with more than thirty years of experience who
oversees a vibrant and growing congregation of faithful and dedicated
believers, I can state unequivocally that our church will definitely not be
participating in the “New Sanctuary Movement.”

Furthermore, it is more than troubling to learn that some of my Christian
brethren seem to be so undiscerning as to be willing to facilitate
lawlessness and even potential terrorism by assisting those who have no
respect for our nation’s laws or national borders.

Make no mistake about it: illegal aliens are no more our “neighbors” and
“friends” than are other criminals. They knowingly and deliberately violate
our nation’s immigration laws and then have the audacity to demand that we
accept and even protect them? I don’t think so.

And lest someone accuse me of being uncompassionate, think again. You should
know that my church congregation is composed of several immigrants from many
nationalities and ethnicities. And they all have one thing in common: they
were willing to immigrate to America lawfully. They played by the rules.
They stood in line. And they have found nothing but love and friendship from
those of us privileged to be born in this great country.

Critics should also know that my Chief of Staff, my right-hand man, is an
immigrant from Zimbabwe, Africa. So, I don’t want to hear how uncaring and
bigoted I am because I believe that people should play by the rules and be
honest with their fellow man.

Besides, our Lord has already settled the question of how to define illegal
aliens. In John 10:1, Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that
entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way,
the same is a thief and a robber.”

Yes, I realize that Jesus was referring to the fact that He alone is the
door to heaven; however, the analogy is well taken. There is a right way and
a wrong way to enter into anything, whether it is a sheepfold, a house, or a
country. And anyone who attempts to circumvent the door and break through
another way is a crook, plain and simple.

Should Christians share the Gospel with everyone they can, including illegal
aliens? Of course, we should. However, we should also insist that people
obey the law and do what is right. Remember, God is not only a God of love,
He is also a God of law. And, historically, the United States of America has
always been first and foremost a nation of laws, not men.

Furthermore, since when is accommodating and facilitating acts of
criminality a mark of compassion? It’s not.

During more than three decades of ministry, I have had occasion to counsel
those who have broken the law and then experienced repentance and
forgiveness in Christ. Does my compassion mean that I would not encourage
them to do the honest thing and surrender to authorities and face their
crimes? Of course not. That is exactly what I encouraged, and sometimes even
helped, them to do.

Beyond that, I’ve always found that a person who is truly repentant and
honest is more than willing to make things right with the law and to take
his punishment like a man. Honest people don’t demand or expect shortcuts
and exemptions.

Of course, not only is our national character and culture at risk, so is our
security and survival. The current invasion of illegal aliens threatens not
only our way of life, but also our very safety.

As has already been reported, illegal aliens murder an average of twelve
Americans every day. This translates to more Americans being killed by
illegal aliens each year than have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan to
date.

Yet, the threat of terrorism is even more problematic than individual acts
of violence. With millions of illegal aliens pouring over our borders from
scores of nations that are hostile to the United States, we risk the threat
of major acts of terrorism.

I’m afraid that the policies of President George W. Bush and Senators Ted
Kennedy, John McCain, et al., and now those of misguided churchmen, only
serve to fuel the evil machinations of those who seek our harm.

Instead of encouraging criminal activity (illegal immigration), Christians
and churches should be promoting truth and adherence to law.
