Why did a democracy arrest Jesus Christ’s Apostles in the New Testament era?

Jesus Christ’s Apostles were arrested and killed by a democracy (a democratic form of government).  The Roman Empire (like the American Empire) was a democracy that emphasized religious tolerance and fought religious intolerance.

In fact, US democracy is modeled after the Roman democracy.

The two democracies share fundamental similarities, such as religious pluralism and tolerance, which the apostles of Jesus Christ attacked in their fulfillment of the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.  For the New Testament, there is only one true religion, which is Christianity, and other religions are attacked as being false religions.

St. Peter and St. Paul emphasized that Jesus Christ is the only God, and that all other religions are false religions.  This offended the Roman Empire, which emphasized religious liberty and respect for all religions.  Thus, the democratic government in the New Testament time arrested St. Paul and St. Peter for hate crimes against other religions in claiming that they are false religions.

Exclusivity of Christian salvation offended Roman democracy as it does American democracy.

Democracy is fundamentally opposed to the New Testament, which emphasizes that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation and that all other religions go toward Hell.

True Christians will stand against religious pluralism of democracies and stand with the New Testament and emphasize that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation.

True Christians in America wil push to make America a distinctively and overtly a Christian nation.

The Puritans in the New World did not allow other religions.  American Founders did not want non-Christian religions on American soil.

Is it necessary to emphasize that Jews killed Christ in our churches?

Yes.

This is history.  This is fact.

Jews throughout history have tried to deny the history and try to free themselves from the guilt.  But denying history is not the right way to go.

The four Gospels in the New Testament conclusively emphasize that Jews killed Jesus Christ.

Not only that, the Book of Acts emphasizes that Jews killed Christ.

Denying the facts of history and the Truth of the Bible is not what a true disciple of Christ should do.

But some Christians are led astray from the Bible and Gospel Truth.

Bible emphasizes that Jews killed Christ, because the Bible wants every Christian to understand this fact and emphasize this fact in the church.

History must be preserved.  Fact is fact.

Should trying to prevent the arrest of anti-homosexual Christians be the priority of Christian political activism?

Supporting religious tolerance is opposed to the Christian Gospel, which emphasizes that Jesus Christ is the only road to salvation and eternal life.  Bible Christianity emphasizes that all other religions are false religions, and it does not apologize for this exclusive claim.

New Testament Christians were arrested and executed by Roman democracy precisely because they would not relent on emphasizing exclusivist redemption through Jesus Christ.  Early Christians emphasized that all other religions are false religions and that Christianity is the only true religion.  This exclusivist claim was deeply offensive to Rome’s democratic spirit and ethos.  So, Rome persecuted Christians.

Christians, instead of trying to emphasize religious tolerance in order to minimize persecution, brought exclusivist claim of Jesus Christ to a greater emphasis and the official government persecution against Christians intensified.

This is the model from New Testament Christianity.

You know that America’s so-called Christians have digressed from New Testament Christianity, because they are “tolerant” of other religions.  They are more like the Roman Empire and their emphasis on religious tolerance.

This is evident even in some Republican presidential nominees who emphasize religious liberty and religious tolerance.

Puritans were not religiously tolerant.  None of the framers of the US Constitution were “religiously tolerant” in the way that today’s so-called evangelical Christians are.

This shows how far the United States of America has gone away from the Holy Bible.

Preventing arrest of anti-homosexual Christians should not be the prime political activism of Christians in the United States of America.  Rather, true Christians must aggressively oppose homosexuality and gay marriage laws and work in political activism to illegalize homosexuality and have homosexuals arrested.  True Christians should be willing to be arrested and be persecuted by official government channels for following the Bible, as Early Christians were.  The Holy Bible is very clear on emphasizing that homosexuality is the greatest crime in humanity – it is a crime against God, and it is a crime against nature.  Following the example of the New Testament Church, true Christians in the United States of America must emphasize exclusive salvation through Jesus Christ alone.  True Christians should emphasize that Bible defines morality.  Christians must fight homosexuality and gay rights with everything that they have!  True Christians in America should force the United States government to persecute Christians through the court system and legal channels, just as New Testament Christians did.

Jesus Christ demands absolute loyalty.  Jesus Christ emphasized that He is the only way to salvation, and Jews of His time killed Him for it, using the official court system and the government law enforcement channels.  Just look at the emphasis on the Gospels of the New Testament.

America’s Christians must force the hand of the United States government to submit to the Word of God or to persecute Christians who believe in the Bible.

In other words, it is important for Christian churches to emphasize preaching against homosexuality and gay marriage laws.

St. Paul preached against homosexuality from the pulpit, and so should Christian clergy in the United States of America.

Christ does not call His followers to religious tolerance.  This is clear in the Gospels.  Christ calls His followers to aggressive and active proselytism and conversion program.  The Great Commission is clear on this point.

Unless America’s direction is brought back to the right direction, the future of the United States of America can only be bleak.  Talk of hope is futile.  There is true hope in Christ alone.

 

What other evil things does the Holy Bible describe women as doing?

The New Testament has some negative portrayal of women.

For instance, the Jewish Princess Herodias wanted John the Baptist beheaded after having her daughter dance for the Jewish King Herod.

The New Testament constantly condemns the Jews – both Jewish religious leaders and Jewish political leaders – for trying to kill prophets of God and Jesus Christ the Savior.  Thus, Jews are described in the New Testament as evil.

Jews who accept Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior are born again and become Christians.

John the Baptist was a preacher who prepared the way for Jesus Christ.  Jewish King Herod feared John the Baptist because he knew that he was a representative of God.

But Jewish Princess Herodias had no such fear; she just wanted the representative of God dead.

Thus, the New Testament gives a stern warning to all Christian of evil that Jewish women can do to representatives of Jesus Christ on earth.

The New Testament recognizes that women are capable of irrational evil and that is why the New Testament commands that women remain silent in the church.

Women clergy should be decommissioned in obedience to the New Testament.  Any Christian church that has a female pastor is in violation of the New Testament in the Age of Grace and should expect the Judgement of God on the church and all of its church members.

God gave the New Testament as a rule, and it is important for the churches to recognize that the New Testament is the guiding principle.

Women pastors/clergy must be de-frocked and de-commissioned.  This is the very Will of God as explicitly stated in the New Testament.

True Christians must comply. Those who do not truly belong to Christ will find reasons to go against the New Testament.

What do you expect from so-called Christians who accept homosexuality in society, which is clearly against the Holy Bible?

You should not be surprised if there are churches that will refuse to follow the New Testament and de-frock and de-commision women pastors/clergy.

Do you think our nation’s evangelical seminaries are a problem (rather than a solution) to America’s problems?

There are some good evangelical seminaries that are faithful to the Bible.  These seminaries oppose women being ordained as pastors or preachers, in obedience to the New Testament instructions on women in the church.

But Fuller Theological Seminary and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, both of which support ordination of women to the clergy, are not among the good evangelical theological seminaries.

Ordaining women to the position of pastor/clergy (priesthood) is at the root of all evils insofar as the church is concerned.

Majority of the women who enter the pastorate do so after being divorced.  So, many of them are breaking the New Testament and will not follow Jesus Christ’s teaching on divorce.  Some of these divorced women engage in sexual activity outside marriage (adultery), since they are divorced but crave intimacy and companionship.  Some of these divorced women will engage in homosexuality with other women out of loneliness.  The chances are that women who are divorced in their midlife will not be found physically desirable by most men, even men in midlife.  And thus, after divorce, they are left without their emotional and physical needs met through a marriage partner.  Thus, some of them, out of loneliness, fall into sexual deviancy, which is homosexuality.

Since most women who are ordained to clergy are divorced, the chances are that these women will lead the church into anti-New Testament practices.  Their being divorced itself is against the New Testament teaching of Jesus Christ, but they will try to justify it, since they themselves are divorced.

The United States of America and American churches started to go into the wrong direction after the United Methodist Church (UMC) and the Presbyterian Church (USA) started to ordain women.

Ordination of women is against the New Testament and the instruction for churches is clearly spelled out in the New Testament.

Unfortunately, many so-called evangelical seminaries have veered off from the Holy Bible and support ordination of women.  This is wrong from the vantage point of the New Testament.

If your church has a female pastor, you need to leave that church, right away, and find a Bible-centered church.  This is important for your spiritual growth and relationship with Jesus Christ.

 

Will God hold American churches and Christians responsible for American government’s funding of killing babies?

Yes.

God sees all.

God sees that America’s churches do not care about God’s Word and have become mere socializing institutions that try to make people feel good about themselves, rather than glorifying God and upholding the Word of God in American society.

God sees that American churches that meet on Fridays, Wednesdays, and Sundays do not address social issues, such as baby-killing (abortion) and gay marriage (“unnatural abomination”), with the Word of God.

Thus, God holds American churches and American Christians directly responsible for all the death of the babies that are financed by tax dollars paid by American citizens to the United States government, without any serious protest or effort to block it.

America’s churches have lost their way.  They have become “people-pleasers” rather than disciples of Christ.

America’s churches need to go back to the New Testament church and to the Gospels of Jesus Christ to see how they are to preach the Word of God and the content of the Gospel message that God wants delivered.

Christ fought society’s political, social, and religious leaders to advance the Kingdom of Christ on earth, and that is what Christ expects American churches to do.

Did Jesus Christ stand for religious liberty?

No.

The New Testament is clearly against religious liberty.

In fact, the apostles of Jesus Christ (except for Judas Iscariot) were arrested and executed (“martyred for the Christian faith”) because they opposed religious liberty.

Jesus Christ Himself taught that He is the only way to Heaven, and His disciples passed on the same truth.

In a pluralistic democracy in which the disciples of Jesus Christ found themselves, they ran into trouble with the law (of the land), which emphasized religious liberty and tolerance for other religions.

Christianity from the very beginning emphasized Christian evangelism and the exclusive claim that Jesus Christ alone is the way to salvation.  All other religions (Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc.) lead to eternal damnation in Hell, according to the New Testament.  This is Gospel Truth.

And that is why there is the Great Commission.

Christians are to try to convert people of every other religion to Christianity, and this is the heart of the Christian Gospel.

The concept of religious liberty goes against the heart of the Christian Gospel and the Great Commission.

Churches throughout all 50 US states must oppose the concept of religious liberty and tolerance for other religions, because this goes against the very essence of the Christian Gospels.

When the Puritans arrived in the New World in 1620 with the Mayflower, they did not espouse religious liberty and religious tolerance.  They wanted a Christian nation that follows the Bible and glorifies God of the Bible.

Unfortunately, America has lost its way and has gone away from its Christian roots.  A major role in pushing this trend is the emphasis on religious liberty.  This is wrong from a Christian standpoint, based on the Bible.

If you go to a church that emphasizes religious liberty and religious tolerance, you should leave that church, since that church is not following the Bible.  Form a New Testament house-church with other people who want to be faithful to the New Testament and follow the Word of God.

Megachurches can become tools of the Empire to extend secularism and humanistic ideals.  It is theoretically possible for megachurches to be faithful to the Bible, but you have to be like the Bereans.  If your church, megachurch or not, emphasizes religious liberty and religious tolerance, then it does not subscribe to the emphasis by Jesus Christ, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”  

Trust in the Holy Spirit and let the Holy Spirit guide you and other Christians still loyal to the truth of the New Testament.  Do not be afraid to form your own “house church”.  God promises that where two or more are gathered, the presence of God is there.  You are the church, the Body of Christ.

As many local churches in the United States of America bow down to the anti-Christian elements in the federal government and the authority of the US Supreme Court and betray Jesus Christ and the Word of God, especially on the issue of homosexuality and gay marriage, you must stay true to the Word of God and be faithful. Semper Fi.

Let God know that not every Christian in America has bowed down to the anti-Christian secular authorities in Washington DC.

Should Christians obey the law of the land?

Politicians and even some preachers are making it look like obeying the law of the land is a duty of Christians.  That is just not true.

Before looking at the issue, more closely, let us look at the motivation of politicians in trying to box Christians in to being law abiding citizens.  Often, politicians have a vested interest in doing what they want to do, regardless of what US citizens they trample on or what religious laws the nation violates.  Obviously, the Gay Marriage decision of the US Supreme Court violates the Law of God.  But it is the law of the land.  Politicians, want Christians to lay their arms down and comply.  Politics is all about power and control of the populace, unfortunately.  Jesus Christ resisted control of the politician of His day and broke the law of the land, many times.  WWJD?

Some religious leaders in America are nudging America’s Christians to follow the law of the land and be law-abiding citizens.  They may do this because they are afraid of retaliation from the US government or the IRS.  In a sense, fear drive such religious leaders from whole-heartedly following the Law of God and leading Christians to follow the Law of God in the Bible. They fear this world and the powers of this world.  Jesus Christ clearly opposed such religious leaders and called on people to follow Him, even if it meant breaking the law of the land.  Thus, throughout the thousands of years of Christian history, many Christians have violated the law of the land and were arrested, including all the apostles of Jesus Christ in Early Christian Church.  WWJD?

Unfortunately, many American churches have gone away from the Bible, like at the time of the Christian Reformation by Martin Luther.  At that time, the only Christian denomination in Europe, which was the Roman Catholic Church, stated that buying a piece of paper (indulgences) can provide eternal salvation,  Yes, it is not in the Bible.  But these church leaders pushed unbiblical ideas onto the population as official leaders of the church.  At the time of Martin Luther in 1517, 100% of the churches were corrupt, and 100% of the churches sought to persecute Martin Luther, so Martin Luther went into hiding for 2 years.

100% of the local churches in a continent or a country can become completely corrupt.  This is proven by history and the Reformation.

This can happen in America.

It is important to leave churches, in which the pastor is telling the church members to follow the law of the land, even when it goes against the Bible.  They are not true servants of the LORD Jesus Christ, since Jesus Christ willingly broke laws of the land and taught His disciples to do so, when they contradicted the Word of God.

You should be bold enough to leave that church and find a church, where the preacher is bold enough in the Holy Spirit to encourage church members to break the law of the land, when it contracts the Bible.

If you cannot find such a church, then you should get a group of like-minded Christians and start your own local church (house church like in the New Testament).  For you and your household, you will serve the LORD Jesus Christ.  You don’t have to go down with the Titanic.  Some Mega-Churches have kneeled at the foot of Satan and are telling people to follow the law of the land.  You should leave such a church, immediately.  It does not matter who the big-name-value preacher is; he has made it known that he stands with the world and world’s powers and not with God’s Word and the LORD Jesus Christ.

You will be judged by the LORD Jesus Christ for the decisions that you make.  If you make the decision to stay with a Mega-Church that tells you to follow the law of the land, even when it contradicts with the Bible, then you will find yourself in eternal damnation in Hell, when you meet your Maker.  Everyone must have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and everyone is responsible for his or her own faith.

 

Has God changed His position on homosexuality and gay marriage?

I see why you are asking this question.  It seems like some TV preachers are saying that we are to treat homosexuals more like victims rather than criminals.  Although for all of Christian history, homosexuals have been arrested and imprisoned, today’s preachers (even so-called evangelical preachers) do not seem to espouse this position of historic Christianity.  They seem to be soft – very soft – on homosexuality.  So, you are asking, “If such men of God are soft on homosexuality, you should be, too.”  Well, remember, Pope is not the authority, the Bible is.  In the same way, these so-called evangelical preachers are not the ultimate authority; rather, the Bible is.  The preachers who are soft on homosexuality have been negatively influenced by those who oppose God.  The Presbyterian Church (USA) and the United Methodist Church (UMC) have embraced homosexuals, although the Bible condemns homosexuality and homosexuals.  They have turned their back on 2000 years of Christian position.  They are trying to persuade you that they are right, and the Bible is wrong.  The fundamental question you must ask yourself is:  Can they allow you to enter eternal life in Heaven?  Obviously, only Christ can do that, so they cannot.  And Christ has given the Bible as our ultimate guide for salvation.  Even if all the preachers and all the churches say homosexuality is okay and that we should protect homosexuals, they would be wrong, simply because the Bible exists and the Bible condemns homosexuality (the act) and homosexuals (the people), both in the Old Testament and the New Testament. God will enforce His Law with His Holy Angels.  God needs no humans to do that.  Martin Luther knew this, and that is why in 1517, Martin Luther stood against 100% of the churches in existence at his time, because he knew that 100% of them were wrong to say that justification was not by faith.  His courageous act in standing up for the Bible, even though he stood alone, forced the churches to re-examine the Bible and some came back to the Bible position.  It is possible for 100% of the churches in a country to be wrong.  That is what is happening in America.  Although we are not at 100%, more and more churches are falling into apostasy and saying that homosexuals are acceptable to God.  No. homosexuals are not acceptable to God. When a homosexual comes to worship at your church, you are to prohibit (not allow) the practicing homosexual to enter your church and worship.  God does not accept worship services of churches that officially tolerate the presence of ACTIVE homosexuals in their worship.  St. Paul was clear about this attitude toward homosexuals in the New Testament.  Homosexuality is a crime in the Bible, and homosexuals should be arrested like murderers.  In fact, homosexuality is a worse crime than murder in the Law of God, and God expects every nation in the world to uphold this essential law.  So, to answer your question, NO, God has not changed.  And God has not changed His position against homosexuality and homosexuals.  If He had, he would have explicitly let us know in the New Testament.
