Opinions and Thoughts
R.S. Helms 1/12/2018
Nothing quite like starting a post with a conclusion, but in this instance, it seems more like a grabber headline.
“Conclusion … J. Gresham Machen denied that liberalism was Christianity. Whereas, Christianity was rooted in supernaturalism, Liberalism was rooted in naturalism. Liberalism as a religious system, was ‘the chief modern rival of Christianity,’ which was at the very point opposed to historic Christianity.” “A God without wrath, led men without sin, into a kingdom without judgement through the ministrations of a Christ without a cross.” H. Richard Neibuhr. This is the conclusion from an article (30pg) from A. James Sawyer Ph.D.
Doctor Sawyer is a professor at the Dallas Theological Seminary and the author of the work posted on Bible.Org. I would recommend for the serious enquirer, a visit to bible.org and download and print the article for reading; it is a fine resource within its bibliography.
Of course, my purpose is to teach of the fraud that is liberal Christian theology. And how the liberal political ideologies have come to mingle and work hand in hand in the liberal politics, socialism, and a manufactured global utopia for a make-believe millennial generation of liberal cupcakes. It is my studied opinion, that this generation (1980-1995 I would like to expand that into 2015) is the product of liberal propaganda that saturated our public-school system and reached its fullness in 2005-2016.
However, we can’t lay total blame on the public-school system and teachers. No, we have plenty of great teachers both Christian and non-Christian who do an excellent job, as long as they manage some freedom from the teacher’s unions and liberal administers.
Which brings us to the escalated decay of our moral values. I generally cover the last four presidents when looking at the decaying moral values, prior to Bush 41 the values desensitizing of America, of course we had corruption in some form or fashion since Thomas Jefferson.
Over the time span of our history various political issues have lessened and increased our values, according to our political climate. The United States has had its share of the roller-coaster of progress, the progress of man, however, it is my studied opinion that the depraved nature of man would find every opportunity to inflect sin on good men and women, in the form of the infamous “Seven Deadly Sins,” which by the way, have a biblical basis. Proverbs 6:16 – 19 … and in part, “these six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him.” They don’t read exactly like the ones we read of today, but I guarantee we can find them there, if not in the Proverbs 6, but in the old and new testaments.
It is my studied opinion, that our moral values have stood in the way of man’s depraved nature, and as man has progressed through the ages the more the modern version of the Seven Deadly Sins, control the elite … rich and famous, politicians, the celebrities of the day.
Control over the people, over all the people. The only way that could possibly happen was to build the government and that would be by the election of the right people, pay them outrageous salaries, perks and the opportunities for those with little or no integrity, but pride and greed to replace all integrity and values, as long as the control over the people groups who hold the vote.
False campaign promises, community organizers spending donor’s money to buy votes, register dead people and illegal aliens; people being bussed in to vote from other districts where they have already voted under another name. The system has been “rigged” for decades. It is not at all surprising that since the end WWII and FDR’s United Nations charter that the liberal Democrats started their agenda of socialism.
Meanwhile, liberal Christianity was starting to make a comeback in parts of Europe and would one-day be running amok in the United States. It was with the help of the changing political climate that liberal Christianity was launched. As the political climate, progressed toward socialism, but it would be extremely difficult to get the majority of the people to simply hand over the Constitution to a socialist regime. Dividing people groups and eliminate the moral values would be sure to divide Christianity, Bible believing fundamental theology Christianity.
If you are wondering why the persecution of the Christian faith has been slow but with a constant escalation by liberal activists and politicians. We had the Abortion thing become legal, not by congress but by the politics of the Supreme Court, just as they did with gay marriage, and opening the way for gay targeting of businesses owned by Christians.
Little by little our liberal Democratic politicians have been doing away with our Constitutional rights and moral values of the nation since FDR. They have been joined since the late 70s with the “moderate” Republicans, as they have been ever expanding the “Deep State” (Shadow Government), which is a misnomer as there is no such thing as a moderate conservative Republican.
This has shown to be true over the past years, and why during the Obama administration we began to notice the liberal Republicans being unmasked through the efforts of the Tea Party, and Tea Party Conservatives. Republicans like John McCain, have admitted that the reforming of the Republican Party into the “New Republican Party” which will be nearly as liberal as the Democrats, even to the extent of Social Globalization. We now call them RINOs and AIMOs who are a big problem in our nation today.
Liberalism is the rot of the world, both in the religious and political fronts. It has wreaked havoc in the United States. Socially we are nearing the apex of destruction of our moral values, of the foundation of the family, political ethics and integrity, national respect and patriotism, and have become violently divided on all fronts of our culture and religion.
Liberalism is at the root of it all, and because of the slumbering masses of our constitutional patriotic and Christian majority we have allowed liberals to brainwash our children into what is now referred to as the Millennial Generation. We did that through social programs, our school system, and a “Turn the other cheek attitude of the Christian church.” Instead of standing firm in our fundamental Christian faith, and ridding the Temple of the money changers, we have allowed them to go unchecked until we have the mess we now have.
Liberalism can only grow in the vacuum left by the planned destruction of our values and the majority of Christians caving to political correctness as sin and crime runs rampant in the streets of our nations. I noticed an article headline in which Obama was making a statement: “The social media is dividing our nation.” It is my studied opinion that it was Barrack Husain Obama who has done more to the division of our citizens than any of the Presidents combined since John Kennedy found the key to unlock the black vote.
Dr. Martin Luther King, became more than the Southern Democrats could handle, and Kennedy happened to be in office, and he, along with brother Bobby, came up with a plan, to embrace Dr. King’s cause against the Southern Democrats’ Jim Crow Laws which were the law of the land as far as some of the Southern States.
The Kennedy’s opened the gates of the “Washington Plantation” totally governed by the Democratic liberals, and the RINO’s. The Swamp, Shadow Government and the Washington Plantation is enough liberalism to kill our nation, and will go on to destroy the Christian Church, unless the American citizens start doing their homework. We need to dig into the ones we will be voting for, make sure they have enough integrity and intestinal fortitude to earn our votes.
They have to go with the intention to put a stop to the liberalism that has infested our nation, at any cost they have to love our sovereign nation enough to stand up to liberal globalism. If liberalism wins, even the Democrats who are all for a make-believe utopia that has been promised, even they won’t like what they get. President Trump, cannot do this alone, even though he keeps on keeping on, win after win, but with each win comes a tidal wave of liberal stupidity pushed by the press, and Hollywood celebrities, who just can’t seem to do any thinking for themselves.
Our war is an uphill battle, but, it is a winnable battle, a battle which God will enable us to win, if our hearts are right. Something has to be done, there is so many issues that it is like a can of worms, monster worms devouring not only our nation, our culture, our Christian church and the souls of man. God can take care of what he has promised. However, Jesus told the disciples when they asked him why they were having such a hard time casting out the demon from the boy: ”Some of these require much prayer.” (my paraphrase).
Could be the miracle of putting this nation back on the right track, will take more effort and prayer, and God just may provide the miracle through you and me.
