Should Christians be willing to die for the cross and the Holy Bible?

Yes, Christians must be willing to firght for and die for the cross of Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible, which is God’s Word.

Christians who are not willing to fight for Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible and die for it are not true disciples of Jesus Christ.

Should American flag burners be punished by law?

A lot of self-hate against the flag exists right now in the USA.  A part of the reason is that American politicians have become so inclusive that the American flag has lost all of its meaning for some people.

For instance, if you love everybody, then you love nobody.  What makes love special is that you are loved more than others.  If your parents loved everyone equally, then you are no longer special.

If your husband loved all women equally, then his love for you means nothing.

What makes love special is that it is exclusive.

In the same way, when politicians want to become all-inclusive, such as embracing Muslims and Fidel Castro and everyone else, then America’s majority who are Christians do not feel special in any way.

Where “everyone has a place” is a place where no one has a place.

The reason why Donald Trump won is that he made American citizens special by being exclusive.

America can only be great, if America is greater than other countries.

Exclusion is an act of love for those whom you love.

God does not love everyone, that is why God only saves a few people in the world to go to eternal life in Heaven.  Most people in the world will go to Hell and suffer for eternity.  God does not choose everyone; God only chooses few to be born again Christians who will enjoy His love forever.  People in Hell will experience the hatred of God, forever.

If you are born again in Jesus Christ, you are special because God loves you. You are special because God does NOT love everyone in the world.  God loves you and has chosen you.  That is why you are special, when you are born again.

Do you think that increased violence in the American society is related to gay marriage laws passed by the US Supreme Court?

It seems like it is impossible to turn on TV, these days, without witnessing some horrible crime.  Today was no exception.  See what happened today that captured the national attention:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2015/08/26/reports-two-dead-virginia-shooting-live-tv/32391633/

A man shot and killed journalists on live TV, as to show the world that His life is worth “a damn.”  It is sad and tragic that people find increasingly violent ways to show the world that their lives are worth something.

Of course, the Bible shows us that our lives have value when we accept Jesus Christ and we become children of God by being born-again.  Jesus Christ gives new identity for those who accept Jesus Christ as God and Savior.

In the good old days, when America respected the Bible and prayed in the schools and other social settings, there was less “crazy” violence.  But as American society became more and more secularized, not only did American society become more violent, but the nature of violence took on a whole new tone and texture.  Parents killing children.  Children killing parents.  People killing in movie theaters.  Now, people killing on live TV, as to create their own “snuff film”.

Is this societal development unexpected and irrational?

For Christians, such “crazy” developments are rational and expected, because the wages of sin is death, and society that intentionally excludes the Word of God will become more and more violent and “crazy.”

In Matthew 11:28-29, Jesus Christ promises:  “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.”

Mr. Vester Flanagan would have found rest for his soul with Jesus Christ in his heart … but unfortunately, Mr. Flanagan had the misfortune of living in 2015 America, where speaking about Jesus Christ in the public space is socially unacceptable, if not illegal in some settings.  When evangelism becomes “hate crime”, the weary souls become more and more weary, and the society erupts into violence and chaos.

Will this be the last “crazy” act?  Obviously not, since the United States of America has decided to take the Bible out of every public space and exclude Jesus Christ in its laws.

In a direct way, the United States Supreme Court decision to force all Americans to accept gay marriage is directly responsible for the perpetuation of violence in society.  A society which stands against the Bible and the morality of the Bible will descend into chaos and violence. This is an absolute certainly.

When Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Linsey Graham says, “Just obey the law, damn it!” (in effect!) and give credence and authority to the United States Supreme Court to oppose the Bible publicly and officially, the Republican Party and its representatives are directly responsible for this very violence and all the other exponentially more horrific violence that is most absolutely certain to come in the future in all 50 United States.

When you take Christ out of 50 states, officially by law, and force all 50 states to oppose the Bible and Bible morality (in the case of gay marriage) by the force of national law, you have to expect God to punish the nation.

One way God punishes the nation is by making the nation descend into chaos and violence.

 

Can Jews be saved without accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior?

Some Christians think that there is a different way that Jews will be saved – a way that is different from other people. Under this impression, some Christians think of Jews and Israel as special and some even call themselves “Christian Zionists”.  But the Bible is clear.  Everyone, whether Jew or Gentile, are saved by Christ alone. Everyone has to, out of their own free will, accept Jesus Christ as their Savior God and believe that it was the death of Jesus Christ on the cross that redeems them.  Those who do not believe this will not be saved. in other words, anyone who does not believe that Jesus Christ is God and Savior, who died and rose from the death on the cross in order to save humans, will be going to eternal damnation in Hell. Thus, all Jews (and Gentiles!) who do not accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior God will be spending eternity in everlasting torment, torture, suffering, and unquenchable burning fire.  Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation.  All other religions – Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Janism, etc. – lead to eternal damnation. In John 14:6, Jesus Christ declares:  ““I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” Only Jesus Saves.  Another Christian ministry also has good response to this question; follow this link: http://www.gotquestions.org/Jews-saved.html.  (Note: One point of disagreement with Got Question Ministry is that historically Catholic and Protestant Christians have argued that God rejected Jews as His Chosen People when Jews, according to the Gospels, killed God’s Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ and rejected Him. These Christians point to 70 AD, when Israel was completely destroyed by Roman democracy as proof.  Jews were dispersed for 2,000 years until the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948.)
