Why is Capital Punishment important for nations to practice in terms of justice?

Every nation in the world must practice capital punishment.  The Holy Bible demands the death penalty as an important part of the justice system that nations must practice.

The Roman Catholic Church is in direct rebellion against the Holy Bible in opposing the death penalty.  It is wrong to oppose the death penalty because the Old Testament and the New Testament both demand it as a justice measure of countries.

Why has the Roman Catholic Church gone so wrong on the issue of the death penalty?  It is because the Vatican follows the Pope, rather than the Holy Bible.  The Holy Bible clearly demands the death penalty as a justice system of the courts and of nations.

Sanctity of life is an idea that was created by the Roman Catholic Church.  The Holy Bible does not teach sanctity of human life.  If human life had sanctity, God would not haphazardly kill humans for sin, such as after the Israelite worship of the Golden Calf.  One act of idolatry resulted in God’s direct issue of death as justice against the Chosen People.

Abortion is wrong because it violates the Ten Commandments, not because there is sanctity of life.

Is the earthquake in Italy punishment by God because the Vatican is not standing aggressively against homosexuality?

Earthquake is an Act of God.

God will punish nations that are not aggressively anti-homosexuality.

Because the Vatican is not aggressively anti-homosexuality, God punishes Italy with earthquake that kills many people.

God will continue to enforce His Law.

Compliance to God’s Law will be rewarded.  Rejection of God’s Law will be punished by God.

God is Who He Is.

Is the Catholic Church wrong for opposing the death penalty?

Yes.

The Holy Bible clearly emphasizes that death penalty is a legitimate tool for secular government to enforce the laws.  In fact, the Holy Bible prescribes the death penalty for certain crimes.

Death penalty is a form of justice that God of the Holy Bible demands of nations.  Deviating from that shows that that nation has gone away from God.

The Catholic Church often goes against the Holy Bible.  This is why Martin Luther reformed the Christian church.  Catholic church follows the whim of the pope in Rome. If the Rome says, “Buy Indulgences for salvation!”, then Catholic churches will preach that in their churches.  Catholic churches do not follow the Bible.  Catholic churches follow the pope in Rome.

Catholic church is wrong for opposing death penalty.  And true Christians who follow the Bible must oppose Catholic politicians who oppose the death penalty.

Catholics say that Capital Punishment is wrong. Are the Catholics right?

Catholicism has gone away from the Bible.

That is why Martin Luther started the Christian Reformation in 1517.

All Catholics are going to Hell, so most Protestants think, because Catholics do not believe in the Bible, but they believe in the Pope.  If the Pope says that Capital Punishment is wrong, then they will follow the Pope, even though the Holy Bible says that Capital Punishment is required as a justice system.

You cannot trust the Pope.  You cannot trust the Roman Catholic Church.  You cannot trust Catholic politicians.

Do you see how Catholic politicians oppose Capital Punishment?  They follow the Pope.  Not the Bible.

Do you see how Catholic politicians support abortion?  They do not follow the Bible.  They are not born again Christians.

Do you see how Catholic politicians support gay marriage, both in the Democratic Party and the Republican Party?

If it weren’t for the Catholics in the United States Supreme Court, gay marriage would still be illegal.

You cannot trust Catholics in politics or in the seat of judges.  They do not want to follow the Bible.

The only Catholic president we had in the United States took out the Bible and the Lord’s Prayer from the public schools.

You cannot support Catholics for US President.

Catholics are dead wrong about opposing Capital Punishment.

What do you expect from worshipers of Mary?

The Holy Bible emphasizes that Capital Punishment is a necessary justice system, and the Holy Bible is right.

The Pope is wrong.  The Vatican is wrong.  The Roman Catholic Church is wrong.

We must follow the Bible.

Are TV Preachers telling people to love homosexuals being traitors to the Bible?

Bible nowhere tells us to love homosexuals.

Bible clearly shows that God hates homosexuals.  God killed everyone in Sodom and Gomorrah for the crime against God of homosexuality (and tolerance for homosexuality).

Toleration of homosexuality (or “love” of homosexuals) itself is a crime against God that will bring about the wrath of God.

Any preacher who preaches that you have to love homosexuals is not a faithful servant of the Bible, because the Bible is clear about God’s position against homosexuals.

Yes.  Any preacher who supports gay marriage laws or tells you to “love” homosexuals is a traitor to the Holy Bible and the Word of God.

We must follow the Word of God, and not words of human beings.

Martin Luther reformed the church, because the pope in Rome told people to do this and do that, and it went against the Bible.

In the United States of America, every preacher who tells you to “love” homosexuals do not respect the Bible and the Word of God that is contained in the Bible.  Bible never tells you to love homosexuals.  Jesus Christ never evangelized to homosexuals. St. Paul excommunicated (barred from church) homosexuals.

Any preacher telling you to “love” homosexuals is a traitor to the Bible and stands against the Word of God.

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.
