The Conversation!Written by Frank Reilly
BASED ON A TRUE STORY. The following is an enactment of a conversation between two men in 21st century America. Names have been changed to protect guilty. THE PLAYERS... Curt is a main stream American evangelical Christian, active in his Church, "on fire" for Lord, and educated in his faith by mainstream Church in America today. He goes to Sunday school classes, attends Church every Sunday, and is considered a good Christian man. He has three children, all boys, and a beautiful wife who shares all of his spiritual convictions. He is a very well to do man, who runs his own business, spending approximately 60-70 hours each week at office, and even spends 10-12 hours at home each week on his Computer and on phone, working out business details, he is a hard working man.
Jacob is a Christian as well, who has experiences with Lord ranging back as far as three decades. He was once very active in his Church, and had a ministry to youth, with a strong emphasis on personal evangelism. He has however, within last two years, returned from a long hiatus from Church attendance, and his fellow Christians look at him with skepticism and concern, assuming that his spiritual life is hanging in balance of so many years away from Church. He has a job, and is happily married with one Child, also a Boy. Jacob spends many hours each week reading word and praying, and has never left his faith behind, in fact does not even really have an explanation as to why he stopped attending Church. Recently, realizing how long he has been out, he returns to Church to enjoy fellowship he once enjoyed there.
Returning to church feels good to Jacob. He misses fellowship, and warm feeling of security he receives from being a member. He decides to join Men's Bible study, which occurs each Wednesday evening, for additional fellowship with same men he used to fellowship with back when he attended regularly. Although Bible study topic is book of Romans, due to recent attacks on American soil, Bible study leader (who is Curt), feels led to discuss current events in order to teach what he believes to be a proper world view for Men attending this study. He gives a heartfelt speech about need for justice for thousands that were killed that day, He talks about how terrorists need to be eradicated from earth, and that it is our Christian duty to support President in his foreign policies, and that it is against God to be in opposition to war in Iraq. He talks about how America is a holy nation, and that God is with US in its doings. He ends Bible study with a prayer rebuking those who oppose war, those who oppose President, and prays that God will continue to bless America as he always has.
Reconstructionism + Dominionism = Warfare Theology!Written by Frank Reilly
Doctrines Of Devils?
Over last couple of months we have been examining a couple of belief systems that are currently circulating in 21st Century Christian Church, particularly ones with headings of Reconstructionist Theology, and also one that is called Dominionist Theology. Although those who believe these systems of thought do not necessarily call them by these names, this is what beliefs I will describe here are. I wish to examine what these beliefs entail, and what can happen in an involuntary combination of these beliefs, which we see today on a huge scale in Christian Church, as signified by title of this article. The Christian Church believes that at close of age, prior to coming of Lord, that Satan and his principalities will mount a full frontal assault on Church of Jesus Christ, and will make his final bid to bring them into perdition. We have always known that these deceptions will be aimed NOT AT THE WORLD, CULTS, OR FALSE RELIGIONS, but at true Church of Jesus Christ. We also know from scriptures, in warnings of Apostle Paul, that these assaults will be on doctrines of Church, and on beliefs of Christians.
