Election 2012-Are Christians Crying-“Give Us Barabus”?

http://tarpley.net/media-interviews/

It’s election year, and there is no shortage of opinions. And everyone seems to be eager to express theirs.. Webster Tarpley is no exception. Days away from the election we are  privileged to get a bird’s-eye view of what to expect in the months and years after the election, (in Tarpley’s opinion, as a historian and very astute political observer). Even though Tarpley appears not to be a Christian, he certainly has a rather uncanny and prophetic take on political and world events past, present and what appears to be the outcome of the not so distant future events. History does repeat itself, right? Tarpley is an intellectual giant, and frankly, I’m astonished at the plethora of good solid information this man has in his arsenal of information. I’d trust his opinion any day compared to the lying controlled media, to know what’s really going on behind the scenes.

That said,   Webster Tarpley may be a genius at knowing and understanding what’s happening in the secular realm, but as Christians we are to know and understand what God wants us to know and do in the spiritual realm and then apply these things to our lives. In a nutshell, I have to agree with Berean call here, that maintaining our comfort zone and status quo in this world, (and nation),  needs to be last tbing on our list of spiritual priorities.

“We have no reason to doubt that we live in challenging times. Nor can we deny that our Sovereign Creator and Lord will weigh all nations and individuals in His holy balance. According to Philippians 3:20, “…our conversation [citizenship] is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.” Even though our citizenship is in heaven, we recognize the commission given by God to the church to preach the gospel (Mt 28:19-20, Mk 16:15, Lk 24:47, Jn:20:21Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you., Acts:1:8But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.). There is no other hope to be found in this world.

It should be of great concern to us to see how too many have uncritically joined with false teachers simply because they are saying “good things.” Christians are joining with cultists in order to preserve their temporal life in this temporal world. There are biblical issues for which Christians must stand, regardless of the cost. We have the assurance of Scripture that “The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them” (Ps:34:7The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.).

Knowing this promise, why are so many willing to camp with the enemies of the gospel? After the publication of our article addressing The Harbinger , critics asked us, “Aren’t you concerned for the preservation of this nation ?” Is that to be our motivation?

If “success,” rather than the Lord himself, becomes our object, we put ourselves in a position in which we could embrace anyone or anything that seems to provide a solution. The Lord inspired Paul to write, “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Col:3:2-3 [2] Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
[3] For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
).

 

 

  Next, please scroll down below the snip to what Pastor Chuck Baldwin has to say about, what, in his opinion, American Christians need to do about kicking the devil out of the government and apparently taking America back for God……….. and in our own self defense.

Finally, please go into the comment section, if you wish, to follow onto a discussion between myself and another Christian concerning the pros and cons about taking up arms in defense of Christendom and the Constitution, since the rather in-depth discussion on another thread got rather off topic and I decided to transfer the comments to this post.

“You have heard the buzz words of this austerity campaign. We are told that we are approaching a horrendous fiscal cliff which must be addressed during the lame-duck session of Congress. In reality, there is no fiscal cliff — it is a myth invented by reactionaries and proto-fascists. The lame-duck session suits Wall Street because many congressmen will be defeated or retiring, and looking to Wall Street for future jobs and lucrative consultancies. We are told we need a Grand Bargain. In reality, the Grand Bargain will be orders of magnitude worse than the Satan sandwich embraced by Obama and the Republicans in August 2011, on the brink of a totally unnecessary US national bankruptcy.

While many victims of the current system fix their attention on the presidential contest, the preparations for murderous austerity are in full swing behind the scenes in Washington. Leading the charge is the so-called Gang of Eight in the United States Senate, more accurately known as the Crapo Commission in honor of Republican Senator Mike Crapo of Idaho, the reactionary Mormon who is one of its leading figures. Other gangsters of the Gang of Eight include Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, Lamar Alexander of the prison industrial complex, and Dick Durbin of the corrupt Illinois bipartisan combine. These political gangsters are now colluding with Obama to shred the economic rights acquired by the American people over centuries of political, labor, and civil rights struggles.

Backing up the Gang of Eight is the so-called Simpson-Bowles commission, known more accurately as the Catfood Commission, since this is what senior citizens will be reduced to living on if their demands go through. Former Senator Alan Simpson of Wyoming is a decrepit misanthrope who has left little doubt that he thinks senior citizens should be exterminated to relieve the pressures on the federal budget and open the door to bigger and better bailouts of the Wall Street zombie banks in the near future. Erskine Bowles is a former Morgan Stanley zombie banker himself who joined with Newt Gingrich to wreck Social Security during the second Clinton administration when he was White House Chief of Staff, and would have succeeded — until Miss Lewinsky came along.
Wall Street Austerity Ghouls Run Wild

Halloween will soon be upon us, and the austerity ghouls are running wild in the Witches’ Sabbath of class warfare against working people. The Satanic orchestrator of much of this has over recent decades been Peter Peterson, the former head of Lehman Brothers, the bank whose orgy of derivatives speculation blew apart the world banking system four years ago. But, against all evidence, Peterson and the Wall Street faction he speaks for continue to argue that the current depression has been caused by excessive spending on entitlements and the social safety net, and not by hot money speculation, derivatives, and hedge funds — which is what actually happened four years ago.

These are the forces with whom Obama has said he is “eager” to reach a grand bargain on the backs of the American people.”

Now then comes Pastor Chuck Baldwin, as the champion of Christians wishing to “take back America for God and the Constitution” and his world view, of which I for one have been skeptical.  Let’s just say, I may agree with his opinion of the current back-slidden state of the church and corrupt political situation, but I am very leary of his solution!

“How did Christians become War mongers?”

Chuck says:

Yes, I’ve been an evangelical Christian for most of my life and an evangelical pastor for most of my adult life. And if we Christians do not quickly repent of this bloodlust that seems to dominate evangelical Christianity today (spiritually and militarily), the word that was first used by un-churched Gentiles to describe Christ’s followers will be used as a curse-word to describe those who facilitated the ruination of our country, because “whatsoever a [nation] soweth, that shall [it] also reap.”
