The Gospel

You Need to Watch This

The video you're about to see did not happen in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, or Saudi Arabia. It happened here, in the United States.

And who is aiding and abetting the ecumenical jihad in the United States? Men and women who carry the title "pastor" or "Christian Leader," that's who. By there incessant push for pluralism and ecumenism, and there shameful, wanton disregard for the Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, they are helping to usher in the persecution of the Church.

Remember these names when real persecution of Christians begins in the United States.

Rick Warren
Joel Osteen
Bill Hybels
Rob Bell
Brian McLaren
Tony Campolo
And others like them...

While I am no prophet, I believe some or all of the above will not be on the side of Cross when real persecution comes. I believe they will be among the apostate who will turn in Christians to the authorities in order to protect their own positions, popularity, and power--to protect their own skin.

Yeah, I know. I'm ramping up the rhetoric a bit. After what I experienced last night on the streets, and after watching the above video, I see no reason not to kick things up a notch.

So, what should real Christians do in response to the coming ecumenical jihad? What should real Christians do when false teachers, false pastors, false prophets, and false Christian leaders turn traitor against the Church? What should real Christians do in response to an increase in persecution?

What we must NOT do is respond like some worshippers of the false god of Islam--like some of those seen in the video--like those who recently beheaded three Christian pastors for refusing to convert to Islam. And no genuine follower of Jesus Christ would ever respond this way, for our God--the only God--teaches us to love our enemies and to lay down our lives for our friends.

What we should do is preach the gospel louder and more often, no matter what the cost.

What we should do is LOVE the lost, including Muslims. We should love them with true Christian love, not the false love of those who refuse to speak the truth in love in order to protect their public persona and "ministries."

We must LOVE those who would seek to kill us for sharing the gospel with them.

The fight before us will not be won with petitions and legislation. The fight before us can only be won with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

While Warren, Osteen, Bell and their ilk trample under their feet the blood of Christ by their repeated denials of Him, in public forums--denials that come in the form of a failure to publicly proclaim the one, true gospel when given the opportunity; we must raise the banner of the Lord Jesus Christ all that much higher in response. We must take up our crosses, deny ourselves, and follow our Lord.

So, what will you do today to further the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
