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.
Everyone in America is shocked that a gay man was given platform at the GOP Convention.
This is travesty! This is how corrupt the Republican Party has become!
Establishment Republicans are to blame. You must protest to your local Republican Party chapter or association. If you do not, then don’t be surprised if God punishes you personally for condoning this anti-Bible and anti-God action by the GOP at the GOP Convention 2016. God may punish only you personally or God may punish your children, whom you love, for the “sins of the fathers.”
Homosexuality is the greatest evil in the world, according to the Bible. God cares. And God wants America to illegalize homosexuality.
Mass murderers may be “proud to be American”. Rapists can be “proud to be American.” That does not change the fact that homosexuality is the greatest evil on earth, according to the God of the Bible.
After yesterday, Christians should be more critical of the Republican Party. It is important for Christians to “clean House” and vote out any Republican who is sympathetic to homosexuality in the next 2016 elections.
“Republican” does not equal “above God” or “OK to be against God’s Law”
True Christians in the Bible must purify the Republican Party by driving out every homosexual and homosexual sympathizer from the Republican Party at all cost.
Otherwise, true Christians may need to create a new political party or push for Regime Change. We the people…
This means that Jesus Christ claimed that there is only one way to salvation, and this is through Jesus Christ alone. Every other religion, in the eyes of Christianity, is false religion.
Thus, American Christians who hold to the exclusive claims of Christianity like the fact that Donald Trump is calling other religions false religions.
In a sense, many Christians in America think that those who support religious tolerance are afraid to proclaim the Gospel Truth that Christianity is the only true religion. They feel that such individuals who support religious tolerance are not filled with the Holy Spirit.
When American people see Donald Trump attacking Islam, they feel that Donald Trump is brave and bold in defending Christianity.
That is why so many evangelical Christians have changed their support and now support Donald Trump.
Evangelical Christians do not want a political candidate who will grovel before other religions, such as Islam.
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.
