It’s Time for Wimpy Christians to Become Courageous.

No Christian in this country is under the threat of death or imprisonment for preaching the gospel. No one’s life is in danger. No one is being beaten, flogged or hardly even threatened. No one is suffering for the sake of the name of Jesus in the same way the early disciples did. Why then is there such a passive posture and a cowardice in the church when it comes to standing for truth, righteousness and morality in our culture? Why are there so few who are rocking the boat of our sinful, wicked, immoral culture?
Jeremiah said it this way:

“If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace in which you trusted, they wearied you, then how will you do in the thicket of the Jordan?” (Jer. 12:5).

America is still virtually a land of peace, but Christians are slumbering and weary with the weights and cares of the world and such indifference. What would happen if overnight we were raided by radical terrorists who demanded we deny Jesus and join their religion and cause or be executed? What if there was a foreign invasion or military coup from insiders, and our government was suddenly taken over, and a new antichrist government was established—and all our freedoms were taken away? It’s unlikely at this point, but what if?

C’mon folks, let’s be real. Our brand of Christianity here in the West is soft, weak, anemic and nearly good for nothing.

We resemble the church of Laodicea who boasted in its supposed blessedness and wealth when Jesus called it wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.

“For you say, ‘I am rich, and have stored up goods, and have need of nothing,’ yet do not realize that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked” (Rev. 3:17).

Many Christians are terrified to stand against the sins of our culture and just tell others it is wrong. In fact, some professing Christians will actually celebrate those sins with the world. They will march in gay pride parades because they say God is love. They will rally for women’s rights to abortion because after all, their bodies are their own. They will say that fornication, adultery and every form of sexual immorality are none of our business, and that we shouldn’t judge and yada, yada, yada … .

Adding to their moral cowardice and complete ignorance of biblical standards, these passive Christians will defend their personal Jesus and tell others He loves them and understands them. How despicably immoral that is in itself. How grossly deceived they are! How spineless and yellow-bellied these professing Christians have become! They’ve been conformed to the culture and a Jesus they’ve created in their own image (The Real Jesus) instead of being conformed to the biblical Christ. This makes them twice as much a child of hell as the sinners who commit such sins.

I am not saying our primary responsibility as Christians is to attack the sins of our culture, but where in our society are Christians standing against sin and immorality? The world holds up its poster child of sin, and we applaud or remain silent. Antichrist laws are legislated, but where is the outrage and the opposition? Where is the resistance and defence of the truth? Where is the stand for righteousness and morality?

I am also not saying that our refusal to denounce sin is our greatest problem, but how long will morality and truth continue to give way to an ungodly and evil agenda in our nation? Our faith is either being kicked to the curb, placed in the corners and fringes of society or just being denied by so many who remain passive and neutral. We’ve allowed our faith to be cut off from normal life and relegated to our church sanctuaries. In a word, we’ve been silenced in the public arena. We are a large consensus of Christians who are actually helping our culture build an atheistic society. And we use the secularism in our culture to be secular ourselves. They have influenced us far more than we have influenced them.

There is very little evidence of Christianity in our American culture, and it’s our fault. It is time to heed the Lord’s admonition to Joshua.

“Be strong and courageous” (Josh. 1:6a) … “Be strong and very courageous” (v. 7a). This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go (v. 9)”

Because of our lack of backbone and courage American Christianity is falling off the cliff. We are going the way of the dinosaur if Christians do not become stronger and more courageous in their faith and convictions. We are living in a very pagan culture right now in our nation. Things are so much worse than they seem. The vices, the bondages and vile filth are expanding at an overwhelming pace. The church is to be the conscience of the nation, but our conscience is seared right now.

Our brand of Christianity is lame. It is seen as a nice religion of nice people. A wholesome fanaticism is missing. A life and a vibrancy is lacking. We are too passive and too wimpy. If we want to change our culture, we must come out of our closet of fear and intimidation. Many need to understand that we can be loving and fearless and courageous at the same time.

Honestly, we have no need to be fearful and intimidated. As I said, no one is being threatened with their life. No one is being killed for their faith. So what are we afraid of? The rejection of men? Who cares? Is that really going to matter in the end? There are plenty of others who will applaud you and wax courageous because of your example to stand for truth, righteousness and morality, and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. And God will give you wisdom and grace to love even your enemies.

Let the change begin with you. A little courage will go a long way. And if enough of us wax strong in the Lord and stand tall and courageous, we will, in time, see the change our hearts are longing for. 

 

The story of the Muslim terrorist who visited Israel.

Kasim Hafeez hated Jews and the West. Alan Dershowitz’s book “The Case for Israel” made him furious – but also curious. And that’s when he visited Israel. What he found was completely unexpected. This is his journey.

The Book That Changed a Man.

Hafeez was on his way to a terrorist training camp in Pakistan. But before he left England for Pakistan, he found Alan Dershowitz’s book “The Case for Israel” and it made him furious. All the information in the book contradicted everything he was taught about Israel and the Jews. The Jews were evil. The Jews took advantage of the Holocaust to steal land from “Palestinians” and set up the State of Israel. Yet, the book introduced him to facts that contradicted it all. He learned that a Jewish state was something the Jews started working towards in the 19th century, way before the Holocaust. That a Jewish country in Israel was an idea from 4,000 years ago, not as a result of the Nazi extermination of the Jews in the holocaust.

Visiting Israel Clinched It

Kasim Hafeez made the brave decision to see the truth with his own eyes. Was the truth with the Muslim Imams and College Professors who taught him about Israel that motivated him to become a jihadi terrorist?  Or was the truth what Alan Dershowitz wrote in his book “The Case for Israel?”  So he bought a ticket to Israel to see the truth for himself. And he found out that Dershowitz was correct and the Muslim Imams and College Professors were wrong.

Change is Possible

Kasim Hafeez’s message to all Israel haters is simple.

“Seek out the truth. If the truth can change me, it can change anyone.”

As many of you will know, I was recently in hospital for a week with a life threatening infection of my Colon. Thanks to Sister Elizabeth and brother George, the whole congregation of the CJCN was alerted to the situation and asked to pray. Praise be to God, your prayers were answered and I am now back at home with my small dog and though it has been a hard road, God has healed me and granted by his divine authority, that I should continue to serve Him and His purpose for a little longer.

I want to thank you all for your prayers and many good wished, during my illness and more recently, during a month long recovery which is now complete.

Now it is back to the work we have to do to plant the new church and  Bible Seminary in Israel later this year. Can I ask you all to pray for this enterprise as devoutly as you prayed for my recovery and may this work in grace for the lord be blessed with your very much needed donations for this cause. Thank you all again and God bless you.

TECH STOCKS SET TO CRATER ON THURSDAY WITH FACEBOOK ON TRACK FOR BIGGEST DROP EVER.

Zuckerberg is reaping his Just reward for his leftist leanings toward the Obama doctrine and the Clinton Crime Family, his Nazism has caught up with the evil little Muslim loving Bastard. Mybe Angela Merkel will give him asylum In NAZI Germany.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq was set for a big down day Thursday after disappointing quarterly results from Facebook sent the social media giant hurtling toward its biggest share price decline ever and on track to lose more than $125 billion in market value.

The Invesco QQQ Trust, which tracks the Nasdaq-100 index and can give traders a good idea of how the Nasdaq stocks will trade, was down more than 2 percent at one point in after hours trading Wednesday. At last count, the ETF was off by about 1.5 percent. Nasdaq futures opened lower Wednesday evening, off by about 0.8 percent. Facebook lost more than a fifth of its value after hours.

Big technology stocks other than Facebook felt the collateral damage as investors fled the sector. Apple lost about 1 percent. Facebook’s ‘FANG’ brethren were also lower. Amazon, which reports after the bell Thursday, lost 2.3 percent. Netflix, which disappointed FANG investors with its own set of weak results earlier this earnings season, shed about 3 percent in after hours. Google-parent Alphabet fell 2.4 percent.

CNBC
Facebook competitors Twitter and Snap both lost 4 percent after hours Wednesday.

Investors did not see this coming. The Nasdaq Composite Index hit a record during trading Wednesday as investors crowded back into the ‘FANG’ names once again. Facebook was responsible for a lot of that boost, jumping 1 percent during regular trading.

But after the bell it was a different story.

Facebook posted weaker-than-expected daily active users for last quarter and said revenue growth would decline sequentially in the second half of this year.

“The Facebook guidance debacle will be a tough pill to swallow for the bulls and weigh on FANG names as this comes on the heels of a Netflix miss as well last week,” said Daniel Ives, head of technology research at GBH Insights. “Facebook’s outlook will cause worries on the Street and that could spread to other names with stock multiples coming under attack. Facebook’s nightmare guidance will spook tech investors with a near term white knuckle period ahead.”

With Facebook down more than 20 percent after hours, that would far and away be its biggest drop ever. Its previous biggest drop was a 12 percent fall back in July 2012 shortly after it went public.

The broader market looked to be on sounder footing heading into Thursday. The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust was off just 0.3 percent in after hours trading. Investors were likely encouraged by President Trump’s comments following his meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker which hinted that a trade deal between the U.S. and European Union was possible.
