Baal worship, then and now.

baal-worshippp-image

The following excellent piece was written by Matt Barber and was found on WorldNetDaily:

Modern-day liberals – or “progressives” as they more discreetly prefer – labor under an awkward misconception; namely, that there is anything remotely “progressive” about the fundamental canons of their blind, secular-humanist faith. In fact, today’s liberalism is largely a sanitized retread of an antiquated mythology – one that significantly predates the only truly progressive movement: biblical Christianity.

While visiting the Rivermont Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Lynchburg, Va., a few weeks back, I heard a troubling, albeit thought-provoking, sermon. Pastor John Mabray addressed the ancient Canaanite practice of Baal worship and, though he didn’t reveal it by name, connected the dots to its present-day progeny: liberalism. Baal, the half-bull, half-man god of fertility, was the focal point of pagan idolatry in Semitic Israel until God revealed His monotheistic nature to Judaism’s forebears.

In his sermon, Pastor Mabray illustrated that, although they’ve now assumed a more contemporary flair, the fundamentals of Baal worship remain alive and well today. The principal pillars of Baalism were child sacrifice, sexual immorality (both heterosexual and homosexual) and pantheism (reverence of creation over the Creator).

Ritualistic Baal worship, in sum, looked a little like this: Adults would gather around the altar of Baal. Infants would then be burned alive as a sacrificial offering to the deity. Amid horrific screams and the stench of charred human flesh, congregants – men and women alike – would engage in bisexual orgies. The ritual of convenience was intended to produce economic prosperity by prompting Baal to bring rain for the fertility of “mother earth.”

The natural consequences of such behavior – pregnancy and childbirth – and the associated financial burdens of “unplanned parenthood” were easily offset. One could either choose to engage in homosexual conduct or – with child sacrifice available on demand – could simply take part in another fertility ceremony to “terminate” the unwanted child.

Modern liberalism deviates little from its ancient predecessor. While its macabre rituals have been sanitized with flowery and euphemistic terms of art, its core tenets and practices remain eerily similar. The worship of “fertility” has been replaced with worship of “reproductive freedom” or “choice.” Child sacrifice via burnt offering has been updated, ever so slightly, to become child sacrifice by way of abortion. The ritualistic promotion, practice and celebration of both heterosexual and homosexual immorality and promiscuity have been carefully whitewashed – yet wholeheartedly embraced – by the cults of radical feminism, militant “gay rights” and “comprehensive sex education.” And, the pantheistic worship of “mother earth” has been substituted – in name only – for radical environmentalism.

But it’s not just self-styled “progressives” or secular humanists who have adopted the fundamental pillars of Baalism. In these postmodern times, we’ve also been graced, regrettably, by the advent of counter-biblical “emergent Christianity” or “quasi-Christianity,” as I prefer to call it.

This is merely liberalism all dolled up and gratuitously stamped “Christian.” It’s a way for left-wing ideologues to have their “religion” cake and eat it too. Under the guise of “social justice,” its adherents often support – or at least rationalize – the same pro-homosexual, pro-abortion and radical environmental policies pushed by the modern-day Baal worshiper.

Though the “Christian left” represent what is arguably a negligible minority within larger Christianity, the liberal media have, nonetheless, embraced their cause and seized upon their popularity among elites as evidence that the so-called “Christian right” (read: biblical Christianity) is losing influence – that Christianity is, somehow, “catching up with the times.”

Because emergent Christianity fails the authenticity test whenever subjected to even the most perfunctory biblical scrutiny, I suspect it will eventually go – for the most part – the way of the pet rock or the Macarena. But this does not absolve leaders within the evangelical community from a duty to call leaders of this counter-biblical revolution on their heresy. It’s not a matter of right versus left; it’s a matter of right versus wrong – of biblical versus non-biblical.

Nonetheless, the aforementioned pillars of postmodern Baalism – abortion, sexual relativism and radical environmentalism – will almost certainly make rapid headway over the next four to eight years, with or without help from the Christian left. The gods of liberalism have a new high priest in Barack Obama, and enjoy many devout followers in the Democratic-controlled Congress, liberal media and halls of academia.

Both Obama’s social agenda and that of the 111th Congress are rife with unfettered pro-abortion, freedom-chilling, pro-homosexual and power-grabbing environmentalist objectives. The same kind of “hope, action and change,” I suppose, that was swallowed up by the Baalist Canaanites of old.

So, today’s liberalism is really just a very old book with a shiny new cover. A philosophy rooted in ancient pagan traditions, of which there is naught to be proud.

There’s “nothing new under the sun,” indeed.

  1. This is why I am not a Democrat. The Democratic Party has taken up human sacrifice as a universal right and is propagating that sin with the sin of homosexuality on our culture. Liberalism is a false religion and is modern Baal worship in contemporary clothing.

    This does not mean that the Republican Party epitomizes Christianity. The only real virtue of the Republican Party is that they are at least, for now, willing to listen to biblical Chrisitans. They are the last political barrier to Liberals/Baal worshipers putting Christians in “re-education” camps. On an aside note, this is why I find Rick Warren and other accommodationsists so dangerous. Warren actually says these two views, the Liberal and Conservative, are both right in terms of faith. No they stand in total antithesis to one another.

  2. This article is spot-on. We are living among Baal worshippers. The is no substantive difference between modern-day abortionists and the Old Testament pagan worship of Baal.

    May God help all of us!

  3. !!!

    I can’t stop laughing! This is so spot-on! I’m definitely going to pass this one along!

  4. This Article is a Bulls Eye.

    Most of our Leaders are now corrupt and take part in the Bohemian Grove Ritual.

    The Church is Asleep shhhh lets not wake them up…

  5. As I strive to lead young adults each week in meaningful biblical study and discipleship this type of thought provoking and sobering thought is so relevant to what I am trying to impart. Thank you so much for this helpful insight.

  6. Baal Worship dates back to Gen 10-11.Noahs grand son Nimrod. Check out Babylon Mystery Religion. Chick publications has a wonderful read on the beginning and origins of Baal. You will be shocked ,it has infected the world politics, money systems ,one world government and the attacks against christians.

  7. Yep, we are a culture of Baal-worshipers and sometimes I wonder where people get the idea the we are a Christian nation? There’s nothing Christian about our nation…just paganism. There are a few true believers in this paganistic society but even a lot of those who call themselves Christians are not really that because they follow the culture just as close as those who don’t claim to be Christians, i.e. atheists, agnostics, etc. I don’t see it changing because the world will act like the world!

  8. So what are we to do? all of our holidays are in actuallity pagan. We as a nation have all been duped into baal worship thru modern day practices as christmas, easter, just to name a few. How do we explain the truth to our children and open the eyes to those who walk around in ignorance. If we choose to truly walk in the light of the truth we will be persecuted by the culture of the world in what it has become. Often times by our own hypocrisy’s! When did our lord Jesus Christ say we were supposed to celebrate his birthday? I believe we were supposed to celebrate his resurection. Yet the dates we celebrate either are rooted to paganism from the earliest of times.
    Now we can be truly thankful more than ever for the ultimate sacrifice given for all of our souls by our Lord Jesus Christ. Only through his grace and forgiveness does any of us have a chance to be able to live a life that is right in Gods eyes. May the love of our Lord Jesus Christ open our eyes to light of his truth!

  9. As a believer in God and His promises as stated in the Bible, this has been my view of the political landscape in America all along, and especially now that it has become even more obvious in our current chaos. Balancing what is happening today with what God gave us as what is coming (The Book of Revelation prophecy) makes it easy to identify the evil at work in the world … and how it plays into His plan. That’s not to say the end is here, but that it IS coming but we know not when.

    I appreciate that this author does not target Democrats as the purveyors of this growing evil, but instead identifies those who support the illness America is experiencing as ‘the modern-day liberals’ (left) or “Progressives” – wherein lies the disconnect when many traditional Democrats mistakenly believe anti-Obama sentiment is just the same old ‘R Vs D’ politics-as-usual scenario. It is so NOT!

    Unfortunately, there are still far too many American’s who think they can TRUST the letter game when it comes time to choose who to vote for. Voting for a “D” (or “R”) does not mean that candidate will hold to the traditional values of the party it represents no matter what WORDS they used to dazzle the voting public. ‘HOPE’ and ‘CHANGE’, for instance, were used for their ability to invoke one meaning but have proven to be quite another.

    America is transforming into the chaotic party of evil going on below while Moses was up on the mountain receiving the Ten Commandments as depicted in the movie with the late Charlton Heston. The ‘Progressives’ are throwing the illicit party so American’s won’t notice their agenda to enter in, by an incremental evolutionary process, the new world order which doesn’t allow the United States to remain a free country with citizens who can continue to enjoy their LIBERTY as guaranteed by our Constitution.

    WE, the People, are the heartbeat of America. “Live free or die” was the creedo of those who set the stage for America to thrive and grow into THE bastion of freedom for the world. Their truth is our truth now. If we don’t hold to and protect the self-evident truths; Life, Liberty, and the FREEDOM to pursue happiness, our heartbeat will be enslaved by those who seek to control every aspect of our lives in America … which is the liberal Progressives dream come true, but was the nightmare our Forefathers knew all too well having lived under the heavy hand of the King of England.

    Revolution II is in the making. Those who serve the King of Kings will stand for truth and follow His battle plan against the evil among us as we wait for the call of the trumpets one day. Patriots vs Progressives – we are now choosing sides.

  10. I agree that the left/right, Democrat/Republican paradigm is no longer valid. The Republicans are just as corrupt, pro homosexual, and anti-Christian as the Democrats. We have been betrayed on so many levels it would take a book to try and outline the corruption including Israel first Zionism that has taken over many churches and seminaries.

    Just look at who are members of the homosexual, Molech worshiping Bohemian Club who meet annually in the Bohemian Grove north of San Francisco. This included Bushs, Ronald Reagan, and a former leader was Walter Cronkite, “the most trustest man in America”.

    The propaganda everyone faces is amazing and it is time to wake up and band together as true Christians for whatever is coming. If you still believe that a Judeo/Christian country is not like Night/Day then read “Discovering Judaism” by Hoffman and find out about the Baylonian Talmud, and it will provide undertstanding of why letting duel citizen Zionists infiltrate and run this country was the same as letting organized criminals run American into the ground. (Read “Supermob”.)

    Believe it or not, the CIA has people at every significant level of federal, state, and local governments, as well as, major media. “Commissioners” are likely positions and the pentagon helped set this up under the cover of a Defense Department program. We truly have become a nation of idiot serfs fighting illegal wars for an ungodly political state of Israel, and to prop up the dollar as the only oil trading currency.

    You can see history repeating itself with parallels to the Roman Empire and 1930’s Germany now with a much greater gap between armed citizen/serfs and the military, and much more ruthless tax based banking system.

    Other than the return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, our only hope seems to be a military coup as explained in the books by Col. Donn de Grand-Pre . Please pray for people along the Mexican border where US & Mexican military has started to fly helicopters across to attack one group of drug trafficers over another.

  11. I realize this is an old post but I am going to comment nonetheless. I just read through Jeremiah 7 and found in verse 18 the “Queen of Heaven”. I remembered hearing recently that Semiramis, the mother/wife of Nimrod, was known as the “Queen of Heaven” along with The Virgin Mary from the perspective of the Catholics. I have limited knowledge of the issue but apparently Nimrod was revered as a god as was his son, Tammuz, that Nimrod fathered through Semiramis. I have recently heard this tied in with Baal worship and even our modern government. I thought, along with you, that there is “nothing new under the sun” and that surely Baal worship was present today but perhaps continuing along in another name. I do see the point of the blog, and agree, but I feel that it may be even deeper than that. Good post though. Check out my blog sometime at spiritualdimension.wordpress.com

  12. The real worshipers of Baal (self) are the co-called “conservatives” of today who are so materialistic and who serve materialism…

    The above rationalization is what one would expect from a “believer in the false christ”…not the True and Living Christ who implored us to be “good stewards”, to love and do mercy and justice, to walk humbly, to feed the hungry, minister to the sick, clothe the naked, house the homeless, visit the prisoner and WHO did not say the state couldn’t participate in those purposes. He was opposed to material greed, avarice and selfishness (self love–Baal) which the so-called “conservatives” are so deeply committed to; they who support the polluters who profit significantly from the destruction of God’s creation and the poisoning of his children, his flora and fauna for want of the almighty wealth and power of the dollar.

    I think the author of this essay is either innocently mistaken or else a purposeful pawn of the false “christ” who is the enemy of God and the True and Living Christ. His statement is a political statement and/or an instruction rather than a statement of faith!!! I have always found it ironic that the political and religionist “conservatives” seem to come down on the side of the greedy plutocrats, oligarchs and corporatists; in other words God favors the rich over the struggling poor and starving children-something from the old “gospel of wealth” which seems to deny virtually everything Jesus said in all of the versions and interpretations of the New Testament.

    I am no supporter of abortion as a means of birth control…But I am actually “pro-life after birth” when it seems that so many who prance around self-righteously and sanctimoniously touting their so-called “pro-lifeism” are actually only “Pro-birthers” who are determined to pull the fetus out of the frying pan (womb) and throw the helpless infant into the fire (life) regardless of the parent’s mental or physical ability to care for it–feed, house, clothe, nurture, educate it. It is as if the “pro-birthers” or through with the fetus and forget the fetus once it becomes a helpless infant. From my perspective, those hypocrites think their obligation ends at birth. “Life” does not end at birth! It actually begins.

    Millions of unwanted infants are born each year but millions of them are not adopted by those hypocrites who demanded their birth. So many so-called “pro-lifers” refuse to adopt the imperfect infant, the minority baby, the AIDS baby, the drug addicted baby, the mentally or physically afflicted baby….and worse than that, those “pro-lifers” who insist they are “conservatives” fight every effort by the state to help those helpless infants have a fair start at life in this harsh and mean world. They impose their religionism on society via the law book so they can move on to other issues like putting the Ten Commandments in government buildings or praying at football games or purging actual history from school-books…

    My conclusion regarding the “pro-birthers” is that they don’t really care about the fetus or the infant; they only care that they are “impressing” God and mankind with their “symbolic gestures”….A NEWS-FLASH: GOD is not impressed with those “symbolic gestures” regarding birth anymore than he is “impressed” with where we put the Ten Commandments if we don’t intend to live up to them. Oh, and mankind is fickle!!

  13. Interesting that any badge of political association would be coupled with Baal worship. Indeed it is written that the gates of Heaven are narrow & few will find them. As abortion & sexual sin are abundant within many Progressive minds, so are the idolatry & self edification present at the heart of many so-called Conservatives.
    Christ willfully gave up the highest place to be the lowest servant of all who were lost.
    If one can empty ones self of all comfort & serve the dying world until the end, then there is no room for Baal. We also know there is not one among us who is innocent of selfishness. Simply we all need only to focus on the plank in our own eyes, love those who are lost, pray constantly, and keep short accounts daily, with the 1 true gatekeeper, Jesus Christ.

  14. Your article is very interesting. I believe in Jesus Christ as the true way, i have failed to worship and acknowledge Him. It makes me happy that your highlighting what is going on in todays society with an anti-christian agenda murking around. I am shocked that baal worship as disguised itself in politics, abortion and gay rights. There is now what appears to be an anti christian sentiment, it feels like a hitler society persecuting the jews, excecpt that its christianity. God forgive for our failure to honour and stand up for the truth.

  15. I agree with the article, but am confused on the radical environmentalism. I fail to see the error in caring for the creation.

  16. heidi:

    There is no error in rightly caring for God’s creation. There has been sinful neglect of God’s creation, worse still, plundering and wasting it for selfish gain. Christians should be in the forefront of demonstrating right care and stewardship over God’s creation. But numerous mindsets have risen to the fore, which have replaced a true understanding of creation with false, such as:

    a) “Mother Earth” is our provider (not a Creator God), so we need to care for “her”.
    b) God is in His creation, therefore to care for it is to give worship, or minister, to God.
    c) All is god: the animal, the plant, the planet, and we are all part of god, so to harm one is to harm the whole (which, of course, is god).

    When such mindsets become the foundational basis for caring for the environment, the religious beliefs inherent therein (ie: Panentheism, Pantheism, Idolatry) inevitably become manifested by their adherents, resulting in an attack on the truth as revealed in God’s word.

  17. and to add to this…..we have certain holidays that church people celebrate in their churches, and they are holidays worshipping pagan gods. if u look up easter and christmas and valentines day u will see where they originated. it is perposterous in the eyes of GOD. it is an abomination, in direct opposition to the commandment of thou shall have no other gods before me, and thou shall not have any idols. if people would open their bibles and not read, but study it for themselves, they will see the great deception, and the mark of the beast already in the land. but satan has them waiting on a chip in their hand………WAKE UP WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. i did not realize that this was a political site. Am i to believe that republicans are the epitome of Christian values

    Where is the blog on the ills of the republican and modern day conservatism?

  19. Then, Mel, you obviously have not taken the time to read enough of this blog before coming to your erroneous sweeping judgment. And, before you leave another snarky comment (or proceed with leaving numerous negative comments throughout this blog), I highly recommend you familiarize yourself with our Rules of Engagement.

  20. Ah yes Pilgrim…I can tell from your remarks that this is a Christian site…..a rather christian response if I must say so myself.

    Ironically I agree with most of what you say, but the hostility is in poor taste.

    I understand that you are a self proclaimed champion of biblical accuracy, but next time a more civil, respectful response will do.

  21. It’s a shame that someone can come in here and leave nothing but negative and snarky remarks on post after post after post, yet as soon as that person is corrected in their misjudgment of the site and reminded to adhere to our Rules of Engagement, they cry foul.

    This is why we have to have our Rules of Engagement, and since you have revealed your true intentions (rather quickly) I bid you farewell.

  22. i see some people saying what do we do about it and i’m one of them. i heard in a rick santorum speech (in response to gay marriage http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEbFRkIhL5E&feature=g-hist&context=G250d9b2AHTzAqyAAGAA ) that we need to reaffirm our beliefs as a nation and even moreso as christians living in this nation. i’m catholic and once a year at easter vigil in church the whole congregation reaffirms its baptismal vows to reject satan and all his works and worship the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. http://www.catholicculture.org/culture/liturgicalyear/activities/view.cfm?id=1047
    we need to reclaim christmas by truly celebrating the birth of christ, reclaim easter by truly celebrating that christ resurrected showing us that he was and is God. we need to celebrate our christianity in little ways and always be able to defend our hopes as st.peter tells us to do in the gospel. easier said than done but i have to have some hope for my nation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm2127VtIr0 (another santorum video i thought was relevant)
    another more obvious and currently relevant way we need to reaffirm to our nation that we are christian is by voting like christians and trying to elect officials who will truly protect our nation and our most innocent and live in a culture/nation that leads one to God and not away from him.

  23. All political systems in this world are part of this. The financial giants who sponsor these systems make grant business on it. Neither Republicanism nor Democratism are innocent. They are two side of the same coin in a managed conflict. The philosophy is Hegelian-Thesis and anti-thesis. The synthesis is acceptable to both sides. It is the common person who is squashed in the middle and for them, the end justifies the means. There is no hope for respect of human life. One solution: Fear God and give glory to Him. Make your Christianity as Biblical as perfect in every aspect: John 8:32; John 17:17. The following popular beliefs are pagan relics: 25th of December birth of Jesus; Sun-day worship; image worship-the list continues. Christ has already confonted the Devil on the cross so don’t do that. By the way He is coming again soon.

  24. This is an article that truly opened my eyes. Although I for one voted for Obama, I did not support his view on abortion among other things. But out of the two candidates I thought he may be the most reliable. My only option was vote or not. To not vote was allowing others to choose for me. Is there anyway way we can stop or slow the dark progression this country is heading towards? While enlighting others? Jesus help us!!

  25. I am Jewish; but a Jewish Conservative! I am not a Christian, but I am totally in synch with most of my Christian brothers ans sisters replying to the article. Frankly, I picked up on the clear similarities between contemporary “Liberalism”–actually plain old paganistic socialism–and paganism a long time ago. “Choice”–keep in mind that Nazi concentration camp doctor only practiced “choice,” “…to the left…” or “…to the right..” is nothing more than child sacrifice, spun to give the worshippers the belief it is THEY who are morally superior!q

    Forgot to note that the camp doctor of which I spoke was Albert Mengele

  26. Why are trying to ferment the second American civil war? Are you so locked in the prison of your own belief that you don’t see coments like this does not help America?

  27. Who am I?

    I was born in one country, raised in another.

    My father was born in another country.

    I was not his only child. He fathered several children with numerous women.

    I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me.

    My mother died at an early age from cancer.

    Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a book idolizing my father, not my mother.

    Later in life, questions arose over my real name.

    My birth records were sketchy. No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.

    I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my new country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs and didn’t follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.

    I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.

    That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and embarked on a new career.

    I wrote a book about my struggles growing up. It was clear to those who read my memoirs that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.

    I became active in local politics in my 30’s; then, with help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40s.

    They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything.

    I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization.

    Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me, as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.

    I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances. This bolstered my ego.

    At first, my political campaign focused on my country’s foreign policy… I was very critical of my country in the last war, and seized every opportunity to bash my country.

    But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country’s economy.

    I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better, and every poor person would be fed and housed for free.

    I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess.

    It was the free market, banks and corporations.

    I decided to start making citizens hate them and, if they became envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.

    I called mine “A People’s Campaign”.

    That sounded good to all people.

    I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics and was able to gain widespread popular support.

    I knew that, if I merely offered the people ‘hope’, together we could change our country and the world.

    So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include “persecuted minorities”.

    My true views were not widely known, and I kept them unknown, until after I became my nation’s leader.

    I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined those people associated with. I’m glad they didn’t.

    Then I became the most powerful man in the world.

    And then world learned the truth.

    Who am I?

    ADOLPH HITLER
    If you were thinking of SOMEONE ELSE,
    You should be scared, very scared!

  28. You said: “Patriots vs Progressives – we are now choosing sides.”
    Christ said: “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews, but now My kingdom is not from here.” Jn 18:36 So there is actually a third “side” & neither “patriots” nor “progressives” are on that side (God’s side, Whose kingdom is not of THIS present world).Those who claim to follow Christ (the Truth/Jn 14:6) & are caught up in nationalistic patriotism, are following another jesus, not the Truth. Furthermore, the freemasonic, zionist Jew, banker corporation (NOT soveriegn nation as you have been led to believe) known as America, was not founded on Christianity but Freemasonry. Freemasonry is the Church of Lucifer masquerading as a fraternal mystical philanthropic order. It fronts for Illuminati (Masonic & Cabalist Jewish) central bankers who started the US as a vehicle to advance their New World Order. Also known in Scripture as the daughter of Babylon (Jer Chpts 50 and 51) and Mystery Babylon (Rev Chpt 18) who will be destroyed completely by God during the tribulation because of her gross immoratlity (pornography, homosexuality, abortion, wars of aggression and global hegemoney based on false flag contrivances in order for bankers to steal resources from other countries, false, 501c3, government yoked, “christianity”, Baal worship (ChristMass/Easter/Valentines/Mother’s Day, etc), Idolatry via Hollywood “stars” and musicians, Satanic music, etc. etc. etc. Not only is America NOT “God’s chosen nation”, America is God’s black list. It is painfully obvious to those with spiritual discernment that America and its citizenry have been brainwashed to believe that America was founded upon Christian principles & champions the Christian Faith when in reality, America is the Masonic empire with enough “Christianity” to keep the masses distracted, and worshiping a “nationalist” false christ, not the Word of God (Jn 1:1). At the time in history the NWO Freemasons formed the USA, monarchs were seen as more of a threat to their power than democracy. Does a government who governs upon the “foundation” of Christian principles involve itself in wars of aggression? Killing its currency? Stealing from its own citizenry only to transfer their wealth to foreign banks? “Create jobs” by shipping them to China and India? I think not. The United States of America is little more than the “host” for the infectious disease of the New World Order…Freemasonry and it’s phony political charade simply keeps the fever up.

  29. bringing all the peoples of the world together to build the tower of babel in rebellion against God telling God He will never (God)be able to destroy them using water.the killing of children in sacrifice to baal.the promotion of homo-sexuality and idol worship.they would put on plays like hollywood.

  30. Steve Swetman says:
    “If you were thinking of SOMEONE ELSE,
    You should be scared, very scared!”

    Jesus says:
    “I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more that they can do. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him!

  31. Lynn and fleebabylon I completly agree with you. I remember how sad I felt when I started to realize that the USA is helping to bring in the New World Order. God is on the Throne and His plan will be done. It is being done right before our eys.

  32. You have completely nailed it sister, to God be the glory. Excellent commentary!!

    Lyn

  33. you are mostly right lynn. But Baal is not the god children were sacrificed to. That was the hated god Molech. Baal involved mammon worship. Which is also worshipped here.

  34. It is interesting to see comments stated by Christians that the Democrats are no different than the Republicans, but they are. The Democrat Party is radically pro-abortion and the only pro-life legislation that I have seen has been by majority Republican legislatures. As long as Christians believe that the sin of greed (who says Democrats aren’t greedy?) is equal in value to the sin of murder, there will not be a change in the American culture, let alone politics. Yes, I bow my knee to Jesus Christ and not to any political party, but I am also not blind to the clear moral differences between the parties, as was so evident at the Democrats’ 2012 pro-abortion and pro-homosexual convention.

  35. “As long as Christians believe that the sin of greed (who says Democrats aren’t greedy?) is equal in value to the sin of murder, there will not be a change in the American culture, let alone politics”

    Other peoples sins are always worse then ours, aren’t they? That is what hireling evangelical pastors are leading their pews to believe to keep them feeling happy and holy. How else are we suppose to get “cheerful” givers?

    1 Corinthians 6:9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, NOT THE GREEDY, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

    Ephesians 5:3 But sexual immorality and all impurity or COVETOUSNESS must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is COVETOUS (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not become partners with them;

    Ezekial 16:48 As I live, declares the Lord GOD, your sister Sodom and her daughters have not done as you and your daughters have done. Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had PRIDE, excess of food, and PROSPEROUS EASE, but DID NOT AID THE POOR AND NEEDY. They were haughty and did an abomination before me. So I removed them, when I saw it. Samaria has not committed half your sins. You have committed more abominations than they, and have made your sisters appear righteous by all the abominations that you have committed.

  36. ^ NOR the greedy ^

  37. Jeremiah 7:4 Do not trust in these deceptive words: ‘This is the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD.’ “For if you truly amend your ways and your deeds, if you truly execute justice one with another, if you do not oppress the sojourner, the fatherless, or the widow, or shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not go after other gods to your own harm, then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave of old to your fathers forever. “Behold, you trust in deceptive words to no avail. Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, make offerings to Baal, and go after other gods that you have not known, and then come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, ‘We are delivered!’–only to go on doing all these abominations?

    It seems that God has just a big of a problem with the sins of the evangelical church as he does with homosexuals and liberals..

  38. The original article is excellent. Many of the comments however, resulted in people name-calling. More of the comments seem to agree w/ the article as I do.– Yes many of the Christian “traditions” are definately based on paganism–christianizin & gentilizing the throughly Jewish “Jesus” (real name Yeshua) and HIS gospel (which was for all nations). The church fathers did a grievious sin in rejection our Jewish Lord’s people. We are grafted into Israel, not Israel to us.
    It is written that the antichrist (including his representatives such as Constantine) will change the dates and times… He did just that when he claimed the day of worship of Sunday (when the pagans worshipped their sun god) to surplant the God ordained and appointed Sabbath & forbid any celebration of the days that God appointed that we should meet with HIM –His feasts. They also totally turned agains the Messiah’s own people (led straignt to the holocaust) Jesus (Yeshua) was, is & will return as a JEW. He will reign from Jerusalem. If you say you love and follow the Messiah (the Christ) and hate Israel or the Jews something is very wrong. If you love HIM you will follow HIM in His traditions.
    He would be neither Democrat or Republican…. He would follow the commandments He wrote (the Torah–book of instructions). There will be no abortion, no homosexuality, etc as it will be severely dealt with as the Torah requires (and Torah has always required ‘Mercy’) He will be the judge so that you know it will be rightuous. Even when He reigns from Jerusalem in the near future, the mortals living at that time will have a problem with HIM. But..
    You may find the following passage to fit today as well. Isaiah 3:12. Look at the commentaries written long before 2004.
    A central factor in this is that the immature are leading. A free-wheeling, laissez faire, hedonistic, immoral, and irresponsible culture exists. Verses 5 and 12 confirm that family governance and leadership are greatly affected. John W. Ritenbaugh The Fifth Commandment (1997) Forerunner, “Personal,” June 1997
    Because men, whom God created and appointed to lead their families and the nation, abdicate their roles and positions in the home and society, women and “children” (the inexperienced and unqualified) take up the slack. In acting outside the bounds of their created makeup, God shows, women and children tend to hasten a nation’s fall.
    Isaiah 3:12 The character of the princes and rulers are that of inexperienced children, unqualified for government. Oppressors is literally “exactors” or “taxers of money.” Believing the well will never run dry, they tax oppressively to pay for their extravagant spending and their childish endeavors. Martin G. Collins The Century of the Child 1997
    Barnes Notes on Isaiah 3:12- This refers, doubtless, to their civil rulers. They who “ought” to have been their “protectors,” oppressed them by grievous taxes and burdens. They which lead thee – Hebrew “They who bless thee, or call thee blessed.” (See the margin.) This refers, doubtless, to the public teachers, and the false prophets, who “blessed” or flattered the people, and who promised them safety in their sins.

    Motyer sums up this section noting that…
    The message of the whole section is solemn in the extreme. Divine judgment on society begins to manifest itself in the disappearance of solid leadership (Is 3:1, 2, 3) and the appearance of immature, capricious leaders (Is 3:4). Society becomes divided (Is 3:5a), the age-gap opens up (Is 3:5b), values are at a discount and those who should be despised take the initiative (Is 3:5c). An air of despair dominates elections (Is 3:Is 3:6, 7). All this arises from moral and spiritual causes. It is not the result of failures of policy but of speaking and acting against the Lord and provoking him; blatant sin inviting its just reward (Is 3:8, 9, 10, 11). (Motyer, J. A. The Prophecy of Isaiah. Downers Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity Press)

  39. Actually, I believe it was Jehoshua, i.e., Joshua

  40. Baal is called Santa Claus today. The image of Baal we a brass statue that wore a Fez hat. They built a fire inside it and placed their children on the lap of this horrible idol in the hope of prosperity, and give one another gifts. The children That were sacrificed in this way were products of another pagan ritual involving dyed eggs. we have a lot of pagan influences in our “holidays”, but when you consider how Constantine was a pagan at one time they changed the Sabbath and added their old practices. to fit their old way of thinking. I still like Christmas and Easter for what it represents to my faith, but what does an Easter egg have to do with the resurrection? What does a bearded man who most children are afraid of the first time they see him. have to do with with the birth of the Messiah? I’m sure someone could give a half way cleaver answer, but it still wouldnt be right.

  41. This article portrays modern Baal perfectly. However, according to the US Constitution we have the freedom of religion, therefore the ONLY way to fix this is to omit this ammendment.

  42. Reblogged this on Right Angles and commented:
    “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” ~ King Solomon, Ecclesiastes 1:9.

    I pass this on with great sadness and a deep sigh. But it’s insightful, and we do well to pay close attention. And take heart friends. In this world we will have trouble, but Jesus the Christ has overcome the world.

  43. Thank you. Great article

  44. I must say that I have been thinking that Baal worship was very much alive and well especially with abortion. Thank you for this article.

  45. Thank you for this article. It clarifies what I could see, but not put into words.

  46. The world wont quit sacrificing babies until the church does. Before birth control the average family had 5 children, now less than 2. The church loves it!
    It doesn’t even matter to Christians (so called) that birth control pills are abortifacient.
    The Pastors don’t care either. They wont say a word against birth control. Just be popular so the money keeps coming in

  47. Peter,

    Could you please provide scripture that states birth control, in any form, is forbidden?
    It seems to me many pass off their personal legalistic views as being ‘of God’, but there is no scriptural support to back such views.

  48. Hi Lyn,
    There are too many bible verses for me to write, so I will send you to an article
    were many of the verses are written down.
    Go to http://www.lifeandlibertyministries.com
    Then click on the icon at the right side of the page which says “The Truth about the Pill”
    Next scroll down the page to an article near the bottom called “The case against birth control”
    Be blessed,
    Peter

  49. The problem and the confusion of all of you who criticize Christianity is that you at this time don’t understand that it is not the Christian who is so good, – but that God is! Jesus is the One Who transforms us! His System is the best on earth, it is truly the only PROGRESSIVE system this globe has had since the fall. We Christians, in fact, are still sinful and always need God and to return to Him – He is always on the Hill with open arms and LOVES to forgive us; but because of Jesus, a true Christian wants nothing more than to love God, himself, and his neighbor. We are very imperfect, I know that, but we try, and you do not seem to know enough about Christian ministry in this world, because if you did, you would understand that without the Christian system and the gazillions of Christian ministries which are going on right at this moment, it would be hell here on earth, a lot more than it is now in so many places. All hell will break loose when that day comes, and the worst (those who truly tried) Christian in your memory will seem to have been like an angel! Christianity – The ONLY GOOD NEWS (not I, a redeemed sinner), tries to tell the world how good God is, how Jesus SAVES for all eternity and how we should live for our divine purpose here in service to God and man. It is not about us, it is about loving God, which is the only true happiness we can find, ever, now and into all eternity. I pray for you to have an experience understanding the love of Jesus Christ for us! I pray for you to experience His unfathomable mercy like no Human can give us! It is the washing of our soul into a heart that beats for our brother or sister, that works on forgiving and loving every moment. I pray for this great, great, joy of salvation and freedom in your heart and for knowing how much God loves you! He gave His only Son so that we might live, and have life abundantly now and into all future! It is so true! When you allow it to happens, you feel like a nut, because you want the whole world to have it but you cannot express it and God needs to do it for you, – no man or woman can! For this happiness I pray for you! I love you, brother or sister out there! I pray with all my heart and tears that I will be able to meet you in heaven and hug you like crazy!
    Christ’s Love and Peace be with you!
