Satanic Statue Comes To Detroit – Is There No Price To Pay?

After a long reign as the auto capital of the world, the beleaguered city of Detroit was last seen (in 2012) asking President Obama to bail them out since over 75 percent of them pulled the levers to get him re-elected to office. Now, the city has become the host of Satan’s statue, complete with two adoring, admiring and worshiping children as part of the display.

On July 25, 2015, the city plunged to a new low as city leaders decided to allow the unveiling of the one ton statue of Satan (Baphomet) by the “Satanic Temple,” after being rejected by the State of Oklahoma.

Following the unveiling, a party was held in the warehouse district that, after being rained out, produced about 400 revelers, while some estimate the crowd was upwards of 700 people, who noisily partied under the banner of a lighted inverted cross.

Why would a city almost destroyed by economic woes place the statue of what the Bible calls “the destroyer” in its neighborhoods–and follow up with a party?

This question is the easiest to answer since some of the other appellations of Satan, who is referred to nine times as the destroyer, give a strong clue to the clueless. Satan is the one who leaves the nations “desolate” (Dan 9: 27).

The second question is far more serious.

Why does the statue come with adoring children?

People paid $75.00 to be photographed sitting on the statue, and in some cases groping each other – all done figuratively in the presence of children. Is this tacit confirmation of child abuse in the minds of the satanically seduced?

Isn’t this carrying the effort to enforce the separation of “church and state” a bit too far? This is more like the separation of people from their brains.

Some would say that since the unveiling roused only a mere 400 adherents, there shouldn’t be much to worry about. There is not a national trend toward worshiping Satan underfoot.

The statue of Baphomet is symptomatic of a generation-long delivering of our children to Satan’s front door. Educators, Hollywood, the media, loose politicians, and apostate churches are all ushering the little ones into the Godlessness that is prophetically promised to precede the emergence of Satan in the flesh, otherwise known as the antichrist.

Is there no price to pay for this?

There is a terrible price to pay.

“The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.” (Eze 18: 20)

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Ro 6: 23)

Lining our children up to face spiritual death is a kind of child abuse that may not invoke the intervention of child services, but has far more deadly consequences than the imagination is capable of understanding.

The amazing thing about the gospel message is that God has decided that no one needs to pay up if they wise up. He is the propitiation for our sins, and that is a theological way of saying what is blaringly simple; he has paid the price for us by his death on the cross of Calvary. Through simple repentance and starting off in a new direction, we can get that bill marked “paid in full.”

Sadly, many believe that a person pays for his own sins, and nations are not held accountable – not so. The death of nations, including ours, is always on the table in God’s economy.

“If at any time I declare concerning a nation or a kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it, and if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I intended to do to it.” (Jeremiah 18:7-8 ESV)

In 1989, Cashbox Magazine listed author Harold McWhorter’s song, “Sin Will Take You Farther,” as number 1; and it remained there for eleven months. McWhorter was the principal of Tallapoosa High School and worked in the Georgia public school system for many years.

McWhorter summarized the plight of many people today who, after waltzing down many darkened pathways that lead to despair, realize that sin is not only the only thing at the end of the path–but it is what gives full definition to the term “dead-end.”

As a child I foolishly turned God away
Not knowing the heartache a sinner must face
But God in His goodness has let me return
To share with His children this lesson I’ve learned

Sin will take you farther than you want to go
Slowly but wholly taking control
Sin will leave you longer than you want to stay
Sin will cost you far more than you want to pay

How far will we go as a nation before we can say these words?

Time is not on our side.

Really, Detroit, a statue of Satan with adoring children?

The History Of Evil – Planned Parenthood Writes A New Page

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” (Mark 21: 25-26)

This verse, taken from the gospel of Mark, has nothing to do with the last day’s wave of heart attacks; but rather it is a prophetic picture of the collective fainting of the hearts of men at the sudden, deep, and wholly unexpected changes that are rolling into human history.

This week, America is reeling from the videos in which officials from Planned Parenthood are negotiating the going price for the organs of unborn babies. We are witnessing something far more sinister than the ancient pagan world’s excursion into the offering of children to be burned in the fires of the idol known as Molech.

Today’s version of the “fires of Molech” is more sadistic and wicked than the ancients could have imagined, because it is now done under the cover of “law.” One man out of a band of nine cast the deciding vote for Roe v. Wade in 1973; and since then, the waves of unborn children have met their doom to the grand figure of 55 million and counting. This is the “law”? If Molech were actually a real and living deity – he would be delighted.

The rest of the world’s nations mandate abortions out of fear (overpopulation), but they are no slouches in honoring the idol of Molech. In China, it is reported that upwards of 336 million abortions have been performed since 1971. The latest twist from the orient is reportedly eating the remains of aborted babies in a soup which is thought to rejuvenate youthfulness in those who practice this kind of cannibalism.

Moderns think they have by means of consensus science arrived at the place where all superstitious allusions to God, gods, and deities have been properly abandoned, but have not noticed that they have thrown the baby out with the wash.

They scoff at intelligent design while scraping through the dirt of their archaeological digs with fine camel hair brushes and high expectations that they may at last uncover one of the millions of missing links for the species we now know as the human genus. Undaunted, they are willing to cling to the few remains, all of which have fallen into repute and total about 12 (depending on which scientist you ask) to answer the question of origins for an entire generation.

Even those who do not believe in God are beginning to ask if the camel hair brushes would not be more useful in brushing away the little mounds of dirt in the human psyche–not in search of an intelligent designer, but for intelligence itself.

Have Godliness and true wisdom now become fossils?

We can imagine the Apostle Paul kneeling in prayer and peering far ahead into the prophetic cloud of the will and counsel of God, only to turn and write of this generation in these most unflattering terms.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” (2 Tim 3: 1) After this, Paul concludes that the last day’s generation will be…“Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (2 Tim 3: 7)

Now, it seems that the political class is all wound up over which conservative candidate for president will come and sweep away the entire moral decline with his pen and cellphone.

I like the Donald too; but what makes us think that a loudmouth rich man, whose greatest accomplishments are the acquisition of gleaming skyscrapers and the parade of half-nude women in a pageant, is the most likely one to lead, change, and even save a nation from its own complete demise? Has statesmanship also passed into memory with only a fossil record to attest that it once was? More camel hair brushes needed here.

The best the Donald has offered if elected president is to support a congressional bill referred to as the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which would prohibit all abortions after 20 weeks except in cases of medical emergency. Not even 10 billion dollars seems enough to wake up the Donald to the simple biological fact that at only a few weeks into the growth of a fetus, you have a human being –nd no law of man will ever change that. Thanks for the compromise, but it will not suffice in the Day of Judgment.

Hidden under the mounds of dirt called ‘politically correct speech’ and ‘cultural diversity’ can be found the fossils of human wisdom and better judgment. Let’s dig there – because political correctness, compromise, and election rhetoric are lousy substitutes for a real conscience.

No one, including Donald Trump–who is not willing to make a full frontal attack against all abortion and perverted same sex marriage–is any more than a paper tiger vying for our votes based on a better deal than Barack Obama. America needs more than a substitute for Obama; we need a first-class statesman with a full blown conscience.

This article would not be complete if I did not show the reader that the Apostle Mark’s dire warning that the hearts of men would fail is appendaged with what radio commentator Paul Harvey used to call “the rest of the story.”

We don’t know which politician will be inaugurated as our next president, but we do know who will come in last to become the first for all eternity.

Planned Parenthood may be writing a new page in the history of evil, but we know exactly who will write the last page of human history and bring in the long-awaited correction to the misrule of men.

“And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Mark 21: 27-28)

Is ‘Crushing Babies’ Now Part Of Obama’s ‘Change We Can Believe In?’

While Snopes says “undetermined” when queried about the recent video that caught Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood, nonchalantly describing how they crush babies carefully on top and bottom so as to preserve the harvestable organs for sale, the same so-called fact checking website was quick to determine that Isis terrorists were not crushing babies.

Isis 1 – America 0

Fact Check, Snopes, and Right Wing Watch are vigilant to keep watch over every jot and tittle of the internet and media while they seem to stumble over the obvious. We can only wonder if while flying like ravening vultures over the carcasses of America’s worst behaviors, they have not discovered some way to determine if journalists have two different colored socks on as the muse over their keyboards.

It is not hard to see that if we check the facts on FactCheck, watch Right Wing Watch for extreme left-wing hype, and spend a little time snooping around Snopes, we will see heaps of bias copiously embellished and garnished with conclusions that need to be taken with a grain of salt–and in some instances dismissed completely.

The liberals of this day hardly concern themselves with facts, and the truth is no premium to the crowd that is exchanging darkness for light and evil for good.

Let’s not leave it to Snopes and the others, but take a gander for ourselves.

Top Abortionist Confesses: I Sell Dead Babies

Three House Committees to Probe Planned Parenthood Sale of Fetal Tissue

Mutilated babies storm into presidential race

Planned Parenthood Official Taped Discussing Sale of Aborted Baby Body Parts

Planned Parenthood advocates horrified by baby-parts sale

In America, we may think we can add mutilation to murder with relative impunity; but all oppression and violence against innocent victims by means of abortion practices has a payday connected to it. That promised payday is imminent and looming.

The promise of ‘crushing’ was given to Israel, and it applies to all mankind throughout history. This is the promise given in accordance with the great universal and immutable laws of reciprocation found in Galatians 6: 7 and Matthew 7: 2, to wit.

“Your sons and daughters will be given to another people, while your eyes grow weary looking for them every day. But you will be powerless to do anything. A people you don’t know will eat your land’s produce and everything you have labored for. You will only be oppressed and crushed continually.” (De 28: 32-33 HCSB)

Barack Obama promised he would fundamentally change America, and it seems that is exactly what he has done. He has cleared the path for a liberalism that has effectively seared the collective conscience of a nation. We will now need more than Snopes and FactCheck to determine if we have a shred of moral fiber left in the land.

Barack Obama: America’s Judas?

Let’s not mince words; if Harry Reid was not at the helm of the predominantly Democratic Senate, the two-thirds majority it takes to impeach a president, would today, be a cinch to produce.

Americans are fed up with the lawless president and his make-believe top lawman, Eric Holder.

The trade of five of the worst terrorists in the world held prisoner at Gitmo for one army deserter may be the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Articles, videos, debate, and news coverage is exploding across the entire spectrum of the media ranging from disappointment to calls for impeachment and actual jail time for treason.

On a very serious level, some are calling for Barack Obama to be charged with treason for aiding and abetting our enemies. Some are referring to Mr. Obama as an “enemy of the American people.”

“Mad” magazine has done a spoof on the Bergdahl incident and likens his actions to the film “Saving Private Ryan.” Mad mocks Obam’a unilateral law breaking action – by calling it “Trading Private Bergdahl.”

Obama has ignored the Constitution and every measure designed to keep Americans safe, along with bypassing a law he signed himself only last year–which requires giving Congress 30 days’ notice before transferring any Gitmo prisoners. The law Obama ignored is called the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2013.

With doctors in Germany now saying that Bergdahl’s health is perfectly OK, we have another lie rolling off the lips of Barack Obama; but for most of us, we are not the slightest bit surprised.

Obama painted a picture of a beaten and abused POW who was on the brink of death. With pictures of him joining in soccer games now emerging and the recent diagnoses by doctors, what we have is simply another Obama whopper. We’ve been through these waters.

The disgrace of the president is met with a defiant proclamation that he has no apology to make for his actions. When is someone going to tell him that an apology might be good, but it is a very poor substitute for the safety of 350 million Americans who are all at risk now because five of the worst terrorists in the world have just been set free to ply their Satanically driven trade?

We may chide, deride, and aside with this president; but in the end, we have become just a bigger target for Muslim Jihadist madness.

Cartoons and spoofs abound–some rather silly, yet others intensely truthful and frightening–like the comic depiction of Barack Obama now floating around the internet. Obama is standing in front of boxes of weapons, proclaiming that he will not negotiate with terrorists. Also included is the statement “I will give them whatever they want.” After the release of the Gitmo five, the humor in this spoof becomes a cause to shudder – not to laugh.

Iran’s top Muslim leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, may not be laughing; but he wasted no time to cheerfully tell the world that “America has given up.” As the Ayatollah ranted and raved about American capitulation, a large banner hung in front of his podium prominently emblazoned with the words “America cannot do a damn thing.”

Is Revival In America No Longer Possible?

Writing of the moral decline in the US has become almost a guarantee that my articles will be tucked away in the faith section, or used as filler during days of religious observances.

Noting the backward slide into every prurient, perverted, and libidinous behavior Americans can conger is largely treated like scolding and rebuke rather than a call to return to the faith of our fathers.

Perverse thinking and behaviors are not constrained to our sexual pursuits as recent headlines attest. The bar has been lowered or removed completely for some activities that in times past would have been unthinkable – how about these for example?

Veterans slam New York Times piece linking vets to hate groups

Obama Admin Will Consider Pardons for Thousands of Drug Offenders; Networks Ignore?

Harry Reid Calls Bundy Ranch Supporters ‘Domestic Terrorists’

Obamaland: Where Cowboys are Villains and Race-Baiters, Gay Radicals and Marxists are Heroes

Most news headlines do not include what goes on in the realms of churches and religion, but that too has become almost unbelievable. For the first time in our history, one African-based denomination has decided to send missionaries to the U.S. to help us pull out of our rapid decline.

In England, the Anglicans are being sued to force their church to recognize and perform gay marriages.

Who could have seen the day when the words of the beloved hymn ‘Faith of Our Fathers’, penned by famous Anglican minister and lyricist Frederick Faber, would serve to mock both the British and the Americans?

 

Faith of our fathers, we will strive

To win all nations unto Thee;

And through the truth that comes from God,

We all shall then be truly free.

 

Refrain

 

Faith of our fathers, holy faith!

We will be true to thee till death

“Strive to win all nations to thee”? This idea is now replaced with the academically sanctioned dismissal of God, gay agenda indoctrination, and mealy mouthed churches raising the white flag of apostasy and condescension. But not all!

Bill O’Reilly shrugs off the plunge into the gay “marriage” battle as social inevitability due to the emergent acceptance of it into the fabric of our nation (and yet, he still dares to refer to himself as a “culture warrior.”)

Take a hint from your noble friends in the Wounded Warrior Project, Bill – real warriors never give in or give up!

Bill is typical of right wingers and conservatives who today value the vote and the popularity more than the future of the nation. To concede assures their future – it threatens ours more than they may ever know.

Actor Tommy Lee Jones is seen in a TV commercial asking the question – “Will your money outlive your retirement?” Then along comes William Devane urging us to secure our future by purchasing big silver and gold, with a nice safe to store it in if you will make a minimum purchase.

The best preachers and faithful voices of the gospel are gladly stepping up to announce that silver and gold will fail, and your money will not secure your future in today’s powder keg of worldwide unrest. Even those poorly equipped to handle eschatology (second coming doctrine) are  resounding the call to return – yes, to the faith of our fathers!
