Christianophobia - I was always curious how comes that the MSM never even mentions, let alone widely reports on this grave issue. Liberal-controlled MSM is constantly whining about Islamophobia, Homophobia etc, but you'll never hear in the news that millions of (mostly Orthodox) Christians in the Middle East (Copts, Assyrians, Greeks, Armenians) and others like Maronites are being expelled, forcibly converted or simply exterminated in a land in which their ancestors have been living millenniums ago and where Christianity began so long ago. Why is that we don't give a damn? Why are we so indolent when it comes to the great suffering of our brethren? After all, they are not just the last Christians in the Middle East, but probably the last true Christians (and ironically the first), considering how Christianity fares in the West today. Liberal, materialistic, even outright anti-religious "culture" is the mainstay in the "developed world" today. Total spiritual void is filled with the most hideous substitutes, not seen ever since the fall of the Roman Empire. How did we let this happen?

These are the end times, Christ spoke of the churches during this era in Revelation.
Know they not that they are all wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.

There are good churches out there in the West, rare though they are I can guarantee you what they teach is denounced by both the media and the government. As for the East, I cannot speak for them for I do not know them.

As an American I really do cringe inside to know this is what my country has become in the last 60 years. It's disgusting and deplorable, I wish I could hit a reset button.

The youth are corrupt beyond measure, confused about the most basic of common sense and morality. The elders selfish and only caring for their own political gain over that of the common good and nation. And likewise, the bulk of the churches here have the nerve to twist and pervert scripture to fit their own twisted desires. I have seen it more than once even to the point of them promoting homosexuality and incest.

I may have that which I desire at times, but if it's not scriptural, it's not scriptural. I have to accept that and eventually come to penitence over it as hard as it may be for me personally. But these heretics have the nerve to directly contravene the word of God and attempt perverting it to justify their own lusts and greed. I despise the modern church with a burning passion. I am both disgusted, and disappointed in what has become of my nation because of their FAILURE, to maintain the moral fabric of this country. That was their 1 job, and they blew it monumentally.

Now that creates a problem for me, something called "hate". It creates bitterness and a less than charismatic personality. One has to remember we are in the world currently but not of it as followers of Christ. I have to contain my anger and at the same time learn to conduct myself with restraint. It is not Christlike to be consumed by hate. That's my own personal issue to deal with.

It is not the responsibility of the government to enforce morality, that is the responsibility of the church. If the church goes sour, so will the nation. Eventually leading to it's own destruction. The only thing to hold back God's judgement is the preaching of the Cross. Without that, God won't just remove his hand of protection from this country. He'll deal with us the way he dealt with Sodom and Gomorrah, one way or another.

It's a shame really, I really do love this country. I love what we once stood for. That was my defining dogma as a young man. Still is, it's just a shame that what we stood for has been abandoned by the majority of my countryman. You have any idea what it feels like to be a remnant? I'll tell you this much, it's a helluva lonely walk.

Countries and Empires come and go. Only God can make a nation everlasting, but not when the people of said nation depart from Him. Now is the time of the cry to flee Babylon, lest you be found amongst its sins.
This world will no longer care for us, and in but a small amount of time, no longer bear us. We will be persecuted, humiliated and tortured beyond what they would do to their worst enemies, for we anger their god Satan, the master of all the worlds nations.
But those that stand tall and enveloped in their spiritual white robes, they will see the coming of the Lamb and will inherit the Earth like was promised.
Don't look at the past glory of these petty nations, they are but a shadow of what you will have under the Kingdom of God.

Dust and echoes.

God knows that while on this Earth, there will be those of us, we grow attached to things. Some more than others. Ideas, philosophies, nations, characters, all things we grow to cling too that make us who we are.

Yes, there will be things far greater that God has to offer. But to forget the good one knew, the things held dear. Those things I honestly believe will go on forever if they're righteous in the eyes of God.

I guess God took that into consideration with me, the day my mother went to be with the Lord was on July 4th. Of all days for her to go. I guess that was God's way of telling me he both valued my mother and knew how much I loved my country, deciding that would be a good way for me to remember her by.

God knows the righteous from the unrighteous, he knows every hair down to the number on our heads. Yes, there will be judgement, it won't be exclusive to us either but the entire world. But when all is said, all is done. Then what government there is will be on our Lord's shoulders. As they should be, forever.

Of course, guys. I was trying to say that this is a very universal problem. For the entire Christian community. Both Eastern and Western. I always wondered why are Eastern and Western Christians making peace so suddenly, and than it hit me. The Churches are rallying. Because they are being threatened by this relatively new conformist, consumerist and outright decadent "culture". The time has come to cast away petty dogmatic differences for the Greater Good of us all. It is like the people have taken the Word of God completely literally, when He revealed that He is our Shepard, so we started acting like real sheep, not realizing the metaphor. Even that wouldn't be such a big deal if we also haven't renounced the Sheppard Himself and are now moving down the path that we don't know, just because that path looks better on the outside. But He still watches ever us, unworthy maggots. And still preventing us all from falling into the abyss.

Hello, thank you for allowing me to join this group! I'm not a strong believer myself, but I am very interested in the history and traditions of Christianity. I do visit churches to and fro, and most Chrisitan traditions I commemorate and celebrate. One might say that I'm Christian as I'm officially written as such, even though I'm not strictly religious.

since im here i wanna ask a question
i know there are many movements in the united states that believe in pre-trip-rapture (i think thats what its called) but theres no scripture that support such claim whatsoever.
and then think about the following: if the entire church would be raptured out of here before antichrist blabla ..
then how come in revelations the souls of the murdered crying out to the lord,and he says to his angels something like: "give them their white robes,and they shall wait just a little longer till their fellow christians join them"

i did not quote it that well,but go look it up it makes it only clearer that there are others who will meet the same fate for the sake of the testimony of the lord..
so in conclusion..that would not be possible if the entire church will be raptured beforehand

Wasn't the rapture made up in the 50's for money?

the rapture can`t be made up..
but understanding what you`re actually saying,i say this..
there are and have been people that are ignorant,unlearnd,deluded,decieved or at the outmost reprobate that use Gods words,principles,and statues will-or un-willfuly wrong.

christianity is attacked like no other religion in the world..
you also dont see as many counterfit religions as with christianity.
i rather respect a person that does not belive in god (or does not belive per se) than a person that is well learned,and;or does not care for the truth but just use what he or she wants for whatever reason...
i said per se,because it is impossible to not believe in god in a way..
some might get what im saying..

The Zionists are behind everything i tell you
Is all a big business and we the people are assets
If they cannot conquer us with force , they do with Faith , if they cannot do it with Faith they do it with the economy , if that fails they use Monsanto to poison foods and so on

The real deal of gods and people are something along the lines of the still alive spiritual ancestral heritage that only some natives keep it further to this day

I'm a polytheistic person and i realize more day after day that Christianity doesn't know much about itself even
Messed up concepts , splinter groups , some book says that when is infact not true and so on

Yeah . Let's wait for Lord Jesus to make it clear to us better because we might be all more wrong than we think about these things

Is being right more valuable than being saved ?
I would say not but whatever keeps one's boat afloat..

Isaiah 28:10 - “For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.”

The Bible is solid doctrine meant not only for teaching of our redeemer and faith, but for correction and rebuke of that which falls by the wayside.

The Holy Spirit is quite capable of leading believers into understanding of the word of God. If one believes they are having trouble understanding it, then perhaps it is time they had a Book of Acts chapter 2 come into their life.

It is not God's intention for his people to be hungry, blind, and stupid.

We must feed off the old corn of the land for strength, God's Word. We must then have revelation, vision of what it is we need in our lives, Jesus Christ. We must learn from Christ, what he's taught, and use it to guide us through this perilous life we all know. Harmless as lambs but wise as serpents.

We believe in Christ crucified, we plead the blood. That's what it took for us human beings to be redeemed of our evil hearts. That's what it took for Christ to be able to be at the right hand of the Father, on our behalf.

If it wasn't for that we'd all be damned, without exception.

You're all entitled to your opinions about the Bible but I believe that book as do millions of others who place themselves under the mantle of "Christian." I'm not trying to be a snob or anything, I'm just letting you know. You're in the Christian group so you should expect things like what I just said to come in your direction.

There may be bad people in the church, that doesn't mean the Bible is forfeit and the Holy Spirit is unable to work. He has His loyal remnants who keep the faith.

On a sidenote, people please avoid the profanity on this group.

"You're all entitled to your opinions about the Bible but I believe that book as do millions of others who place themselves under the mantle of "Christian." "

so do i,and i quite frankly dont get why you think of me different
the conversation went towards false teachers,and i dont see anything wrong with what i`ve said

here`s a good video Youtube.com about the rapture question .. i watched it..it goes only by the book, i would challenge each and everyone to watch it

I never meant ill to anyone.

Yes, false teachers are the biggest issue today. But nonetheless, regardless of our personal beliefs on when the rapture of the church will occur. There is one thing we must all agree on.

Acts 1:7 - "It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father has put into His Own power." (Christ is saying that it is not the business of the followers of Christ to know this information, but rather to 'occupy' till I come)

If you wish to know my views on the matter further you could look here, it will describe my beliefs on the rapture and what becomes of the believers after.

Youtube.com

It's not just speculation however. I don't know the day nor the hour, nor do I intend to. I'd rather not have that anxiety on my head. I do however believe the rapture will be before the Antichrist reveals himself.

II Thessalonians 2:6-8 - "And now you know what withholds (speaks of the Church) that he might be revealed in his time. (This speaks of the Antichrist who will be revealed or made known after the Rapture of the Church)

For the mystery of iniquity does already work (concerns the false teaching by false teachers): only he (the Church) who now lets (who now hinders evil) will let (will continue to hinder), until he (the Church) be taken out of the way. (The pronoun "he" confuses some people. In verses 4 and 6, the pronoun "He" refers to the Antichrist, while in Verse 7, 'he' refers to the Church.)

And then (after the Rapture of the Church) shall that Wicked (the Antichrist) be revealed (proving conclusively that the Rapture takes place before the Great Tribulation [Matthew 24.21]), whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth (should have been translated, 'the Breath of His Mouth' [Isaiah 11:4]), and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming. (Both phrases refer to the to the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ)"

and while im at it.. please allow me to clear my troath..
i am not talking about christians believing in their heart that their doing the right thing... i am talking about individuals that are willfully oppossisng and working against God, i am talking about ministers of satan.

and there are so many,for example.. can you think of anyone calling himself Gods replacement on earth?
that does like almost everything against the very book/word/son of God/God
and if you can realize that,than just look at those pastors from mega "churches".. and you will get what i mean

Yup

I always come to point things out at them myself
Even though i am not a hardcore christian , not a preacher , not stuck into only the Christian doctrine , i admit i had issues with satanists , better said they had issues with me

And that led me to a conclusion that : I don't care what religion you are , or if you worship a stone idol or a non palpable ideal , if you respect my chosen faith , if you respect my free will of choosing a faith or not , i will respect you even more in return but if you force anything on me , is a deal breaker and all friendship ceases

Christian people that sometimes stray from the Faith are not such a big problem compared to convinced satanists that try to coerce someone into that ridiculous belief of theirs that even lacks a code of conduct and morals

We might want to be respectful for others beliefs and so on but we cannot hide behind our own shadows and not admit that their faith , if can be called that way , is the main enemy of Christianity and perhaps the main enemy of all other religions

I hate to say it but i really don't have pity , remorse or any good thoughts about them and sometimes i even wish to see them harmed
I may never be a zealot christian but i will always despise the enemy's teachings and the crap it spawns into the world thanks to the deluded people that follow him , like these corrupt churches that we talk about

Yes, I'm aware.

Part of why the United States is in the mess it's in is because all of the false teaching, as well as false prophets currently in the Church. I can guarantee you 100% that is the reason we're in the bad shape were in. Not banks or politicians, but because of the collapse of the moral fabric of this country thanks to false teaching.

The amount of heresy in the Church here is beyond measure.

Up to this point, the only thing holding back God's judgement has been the Message of the Cross. I don't intend to fool myself however into believing judgement shall not come. It will come, as will it on the rest of the world as well.

I do however believe God has removed his hand of protection from this country given how things are collapsing. I'm ashamed that my nation has reduced itself to this, likewise am I ashamed the Church has been infiltrated by such apostasy. But that is not my battle to fight. I have to focus on the here and now with what the Lord wants me to do with my life. No matter how big or small the job.

We may be surrounded by heresy but that does not give us an excuse to throw in the towel and give up hope. We're soldiers, it's our duty to keep going forward, regardless of the worlds perception towards us. Preach Christ crucified, and do it unashamed. That is our primary concern in the end. It was never our goal to be like the world, or appeal to the wickedness in it. If you see the wicked starting to like the Church, than that's a grave sign we have apostasy on our hands.

There will be just reward for the faithful.
But until that appointed time we must keep busy.

From what Ive been taught, this has to do with those who are converted to Christianity after the rapture. Just because we leave, doesn't mean the spirit of God will cease working on this Earth. There's a lot the Lord has to see too.

Likewise, it's not like the anti-Christ will be able to wipe out any and all traces of the faith from this world. As long as the spirit of God and His word is present. People on this Earth will still be converted.

I think what you're referring holds the people who give their lives for Christ during the tribulation a special status. As the tribulation saints they'll have experienced persecution like no other Christians have before. Now I'm not saying you have to believe in the rapture or not, it's your decision. I personally believe in it, but I also know that it's no excuse for me to stop doing my part while here.

There's so many bad things that have happened on this planet, so many dead and terrible ways to have met their ends. I can't imagine nor even contemplate how I or anyone else would fair in such situations. But I will say the Earth groans for deliverance from this. As we near the end, expect things to get more and more unstable around here.

From what i read about this , the one and only rapture and ascension to Heaven is after the Judgement of our Lord not before at all
This before rapture theory sounds like wishful thinking to me but in truth i think nobody will make a step to Heaven until after being judged for their deeds in their life and deemed worthy of it
