Where are the Christians?

By
From page C3 | July 27, 2014 |

Why isn’t the United States mentioned in the Bible, especially when we read Bible prophecy regarding the future of the world?

When I became a Christian, about 35 years ago, I believed it was because our country would be reduced to just a few people after the “rapture” of the church.

The rapture, which comes from the Latin word “raptus”, means caught up. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 states, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.”

Thirty five years ago, we were “One nation under God,”  but we were already on the decline as a world power. I believe a large part of our decline has been our failure as Christians to be “salt and light” to those around us. Jesus told His followers, “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.”

Sometimes I read the angry postings from those who don’t believe. They just need to be patient. The only thing holding back unbridled evil and the wanton pursuit of every kind of sensual, self-seeking pleasure is we “crazy” Christians. When Jesus comes for us, as promised, those who remain will be free to pursue every lust without hindrance.

I used to think the United States wasn’t mentioned because so many Christians would vanish from the earth in the rapture, but I have changed my view. I don’t see so many standing up for what is good, righteous, and holy. The salt and light have become a minority.

There is now good reason to believe we, as a nation, will destroy ourselves.

We have proven we are capable of destroying ourselves. Just look at the legalization of abortion.

Since 1973, when we legalized a woman’s right to end the life of her unborn child, we have killed almost 56 million babies. That is a whole generation who would have been here to insure the future. We lost those who would work in the workplace, support the government (if you lean in that direction) and pass on our heritage.

That number is equal to the population of California, Arizona, Nevada, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Oregon combined in case you have trouble putting things in perspective.

Christians, don’t give up standing up for what is good and wholesome, and to the rest, pray that Jesus comes soon to get all of us Christians out of your way.

    Ms. Reese. if folks believing as you do were to take over, we would be destroyed. Religious history has all ready proven that. We all should be darn grateful for Constitutional law and order.

    Well he would like it. I am very grateful for the constitution and for a more secular democracy that allows us various religions or no religion. And hopefully protects us from those whose beliefs, if acted upon, could harm us.

    The U.S. wasn't mentioned because the "authors" didn't even know that section of the world existed. And those 56 million whom Mr. Reese cries over, the Earth is overpopulated enought as it is. The number is actually much, much higher if you count the spontaneous abortions induced by nature that affect almost 50% of all pregnancies. And let's stop with the persecution complex among Christians. We atheists can't even get elected in this country, in some states it is illegal for an atheist to even seek office! As for your assertion about unbridled evil running rampant without Christian interference, go back and add up the evil done in the name of God. What stops atheists like me from "unbridled evil" is something called a conscience. I hurt no person lest they try and hurt me. It's nice that the DR's owners and editors give these poor souls a voice. I guess their tax-payer subsidized pulpits aren't enough.

    RELIGION HAS BEEN DESTRUCTIVE the religion of atheism has been the most destructive of all the religions and has been responsible for more than 100 million deaths mostly of their own citizens. The biggest mass murderers in history Mao, Stalin, Pot Pol and Hitler all believers in the religion of atheism or paganism in comparison to the religion of the belief in a deity were much more destructive, there's no comparison, they were infinitely more destructive than radical Islam, let's pray that this religious doesn't spread like it did in the past.

    Daniel, Hitler was a Roman Catholic who felt he was doing God's work by eliminating Jews. Atheism is not a religion, just like "off" isn't a TV channel. None of the mass murderers you mentioned killed in the name of atheism. They killed because they were megalomaniacs who may have just happened to be atheists. If only they'd found Jesus like Hitler did...

    Jason... you know so little about so many things. One (of many) places you could start is by reading Edwin Black's "The Transfer Agreement". Edwin Black is a Jew and was disowned by his Jewish family after writing the truth... the truth that goes against the big lie. I'll trust Edwin Black's research much more than your mindless mainstream ramblings.

    Jason, "The Transfer Agreement" was between the Zionists (including the banking dynasty of the Rothschilds) and Hitler to relocate a LARGE number of the non-religious "Jews" from Germany to Palestine. The benefit to Hitler was to remove a large number of subversives (remember that Jews from around the world engineered an economic boycott against Germany starting in 1933). The benefit to the Zionists was to reach a tipping point of immigration in Palestine to exercise power (and violence) against the native Arabs. The interesting thing is that the number of Jewish immigrants to Palestine is about the same number the Zionists later claimed that Hitler exterminated. Obviously this was a Zionist attempt to conceal the invasion of Palestine. Today we call this "The Big Lie".

  • Time For TruthJuly 27, 2014 - 11:38 am

    Jason, back to your original comment: Hitler's ELIMINATION of "Jews" from Germany was an agreement with the Zionists to transport them to Palestine. Also, as this article is about "Christians" and you said that Hitler was a Roman Catholic, I take it you are equating the system of Catholicism to Christianity. Catholicism is not Christianity... in fact, it is a great example of rat poison; 98 percent good food and 2 percent deadly poison. The structural dictates that make Catholicism anti-Christianity, in the same way that LDS and JW's are anti-Christianity, is the 2 percent poison. So, if your assertion is that Hitler was a Christian because he was a Catholic, then you are as mistaken on this point as you were on "The Big Lie" point.

    So, TFT - where do you come up with your premise that Catholicism isn't Christian? Peter, one of Jesus's 12 disciples, was the first pope. Catholicism was the first Christian church. Nice try, but you're wrong.

    Everything from Wikipedia to Vatican 2 will tell you, Teach, that under Catholicism man cannot have a personal relationship with Christ but instead must have that relationship ONLY through the Pope AND that salvation is dependent upon one's works. For a Christian, the relationship with Christ is personal AND salvation is ONLY dependent upon faith. Christianity and Catholicism are completely opposite. The Pope is NOT God... Jesus is.

    Also, who said the pope was God? So, I salvation comes only through Faith? Really? You can commit any evil act you choose, but as long as you have "Faith" you're saved? That's the Lutheran version of Christianity. Wikipedia, really? And where did you read that Vatican II stated salvation came only through the Pope? Maybe you need to retread that section.

    Jason - I don't know whether you are right about Hitler being baptized a Catholic or not, but I'll take your word for it. Just because you're baptized Catholic, you still need to practice the faith in order to be considered "Catholic ". Henry XIII was also baptized Catholic, but eventually became head of the Church of England when he couldn't get an annulment or divorce. Lots of folks are baptized Catholic who don't consider themselves such since they don't believe the precepts of the church. Hitler wasn't doing "God's work". Where did you come up with that?

    Silly me I thought when I read the title of the article that it would be referring to the lack of compassion that seems so prevalent in the Christian community, particularly when it comes to how this country is treating it's poor. How many who claim to be pro-lie are in fact just pro-birth, because once those babies pop out, forget about taking care of them. So I ask you noel where were you when the cuts to Food stamps, WIC, Head Start, Unemployment, etc.. I really want to know. Where were are you still as the religious right. are targeting children escaping war and famine? Did I miss the protests against the hatemongers? To be fair I must ask Jason the "atheist" what do you think on the subjects of helping those in need? And as far as work in the workplace where the heck have you been there is no work force here because the 1% that you no doubt voted for has shipped them overseas. The ones here only pay minimum wage and fight all efforts to change that. When we see the Christians standing up to them and demanding changes, and equality for all not just the wealthy.

    Lynn. Cuts to food stamps? Really! When able bodied people subside on the labor of others and people like you complain that not enough is being provided. The welfare class is way too entitled to others money. In the bible farmers were required to set a portion of their fields so that the poor could glean from them. They had to pick it and prepare the food. Now we have people screaming for their rights. How selfish!

    By the way atheism has every single charachteristic of a religion, it's just your "religion" is limited to your own faith (that there is no God) and extremely limited to your own senses, the difference to me, is that it's just more irrational.

    Hello Noel, I know your article is well intentioned. Has a grateful follower of Jesus, I know that anytime I come across as judgmental, the message is lost. Jesus gives me no authority to judge. He tells me to be in a relationship with Him where by example (not words) others will inquire as to from where all the love comes. Jesus was most critical of the religious leaders of the times and if He came today it would not be much different. This world is messed up and He is the answer; however, telling others how to live (as long as it is within society's laws) is where we as Christians fail because we also fall so very very short of God's standards. Why do we choose certain sins to be political about and others we simply ignore? Again, society will determine the laws I must adhere to and gratefully Jesus gives me the requirements for eternity with him. And it has nothing to do with living up to a subjective set of standards; but rather, to simply accepting His free gift. It is saddening, that on a macro scale, us Christians are really not very good at communicating the freedom of His gift to us and the sacrifice that went with it; no strings attached.

    I didn't see the article as judgemental or preachy. She is clearly passionate about abortion and that's okay. Abortion was being done long before it was legalized but there aren't accurate stats on that because it was underground. What the government did by legalizing abortion was bring it into the light, give women ultimate authority over their bodies and a chance to receive salvation. You see God gave us free will to chose him or not, to chose abortion or adultery or gossiping or lying, etc.. The government simply felt that the butchering of women and the unborn some of which were and still are rape and incest victims, shouldn't be happening in filthy facilities so they regulated a procedure that was already happening. There are many things that are legal that Christians and non-believers don't partake in. It's heart breaking but one must never forget this sin too is pardoned by the sacrificial lamb. If schools would incorporate 3D ultra sounds in their sex ed it might help though my kids got their moral training at home.

    Blame the victim is the psycopath's favorit game. From all I have read here it doesn't matter if hitler thought the Jewish people he was muredering were going to undo the German economy or if he thought he was ethno-cleansing both man God. Hitler had no right to do what he did. Thou shalt not judge, thou shalt not commit murder. These are 2 commandments asked from a Holy God that says if we as individuals practice this then as neighbors and family we will grow in love. On my street we have all different colors and types of peopleand beliefs. We all love each other and help each other insickness and get together to celebrat for no reason just because we like each other. The commandments are beautiful for living a good life as an individual. Live it first andlet your light be what brings others to your Saviour. Humanity needs the salt to be flavorful but it starts inside with the strength of a personal relationship from a very interactive God.

    Jason just because someone claims to be a Catholic doesn't mean they are one. I never read that Hitler claimed to be a practicing Catholic in his adulthood but even if he claimed that, he was no more Catholic than Benedict Arnold or the KKK claiming to stand for American values and really being American.

    My post should be listed under Jason Knowles 1st reply sorry! It is a commentary about the dialogue about hitler contained in the replies. My apologies for any confusion. I personally liked the article but it is sad that so may people have to abort. It is a woman's decision and most of the time made due to financial reasons. when not, in cases like rape or incest, still heartbreaking. To all those who oppose, do something:the foster homes are full. Been there done that. :-) Like I said commandments are an individual thing and we have to love each other through each hard time. So, where are the Christian? All around you quietly leading our lives and trying to be good because we have all been bad in the Holy Eyes of a loving and forgiving God.

    The Hitler/Nazi tangent only makes sense in these comments if one makes the connection between destroying a huge population of humans in order to make life "better". Equating abortions with the Holocaust isn't so far off. Genetic definitions will catch up some day, and human life will be human life, and the lazy, sociopathic logic of population control through abortion will likely be replaced by proper moral and ethical sexual behavior. If not, then we're just a bunch of stupid animals or wicked people. Proponents of abortion will be equated with slave owners and Nazis, or not at all, because the mass delusion that it does society good for this practice to continue will win out. I will say even ancient pagan societies which sacrificed their infants to gods at least valued the life and considered it a true sacrifice. Most people are so sociopathic and evil now that they don't even allow themselves to see an abortion as a sacrifice. No respect for human life at all, only that they are worried they're gonna run out of stuff because of overpopulation. At least be technological optimists if you're going to be an atheist and think of ways to support the population without destroying human life. Otherwise, you're no better than Nazis intellectually.
