CHAPTER 16 NOT WORTH CONTENDING: SUPPLEMENT: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A CONSERVATIVE-REPUBLICAN CHRISTIAN: JESUS IS A SMALL-C COMMUNIST

Sunday, July 16, 2006:

The United States is a dysfunctional constitutional Empire in which the current emperor for two terms blatantly cheated to obtain both. The people with power did nothing about it. That system is not worth fighting for. Trying to patch that house so that real Christianity can flourish within is a lost cause.

Will you say the alternative is worse? Will you say that if we don't fight, kill, die, and destroy for the sake of that empire that we will live under a worse system? Will you say militant Muslims will then dominate the earth, placing all under sharia law, killing all who do not profess Allah as God? That is not the only alternative to the false system that tops America. That is only one false way among countless. There are countless better alternatives to the current American and sharia law. There is one perfect way also.

Changing the system that is America from a violent society to a peace-loving society means the current house falls and the spirits separate—dark from light.

There are those who advocate voting within the system (in an attempt to keep the irreconcilable house patched together) to change the system, to take back the system. They don't see it. As millions of people, tens of millions, hundreds of millions, and, yes, billions of people rather stop being part of the system, that system will fall. Oh, it will main people. It's doing that now. It will kill people. It's doing that now. It will lie to the people. It's doing that now. It's doing, and will continue to do, what it has been doing since the liar from the beginning; however, the souls and spirit of the people who move out of that system, in spirit and often in body, and who refuse to engage in any of those maimings, killings, and lies and who displace that system with the way of real love, peace, and truth, will be saved from the Beast that is the Empire. Many will be sacrificed, to be sure, just as Jesus was sacrificed; but, the evil system will fall and be displaced by the new earth and new heaven. Then the rest of the promises of God will continue unfolding. The miracles will continue unfolding.

Islam

As for the Muslims in the world, they have not yet converted to real Christianity en masse, because they have never heard of real Christianity. Were real Christianity to come forth, Islam would fail to win the debate in the consciences of the people.

Remember, being a real Christian doesn't mean they won't persecute your flesh. If your soul belongs to God though, they won't be able to do you any harm to your soul. The cup will pass.

It must be remembered that just because militants called themselves Christian Crusaders doesn't mean that they followed Jesus. It must also be remembered that just because many who call themselves Muslims are desirous of the real peace of Christ doesn't mean that they follow Mohammed. In fact, it can't.

Islam isn't what the majority of Muslims do. Islam is Mohammed waging wars for territory, which was the same as waging war for the sake of violent domination of his religious views over others, regardless of whether later Muslims were what is called today tolerant or not. The only way for Islam to lose political control was by the sword. They didn't just give it up without a fight.

Error is error. Mohammed was mistaken to pursue territory by the sword. Why attempt to whitewash it? No real Christian would ever whitewash the Crusades or the Inquisitions, etc. the Crusades and Inquisitions and other persecutions by Roman popes or Protestants cannot be justified ever! Neither can the Jewish treatment of the Palestinians ever be justified. They are all wrong: False Christians, Muslims, and false Zionists.

Are there wonderful people who now call themselves Muslims? Yes. The same goes for every religion. That's why one day this earth will be a new earth and there will be a new heaven together with all converts to the one path of Jesus, not because Jesus was Semitic, and he was Semitic, but because he was right. People can be Semitic and wrong. Look around.

He did it. He identified the problem and offered the only solution.

Look, Mohammed came along and insulted the Gospels. He called them doctored to the extent that error flowed from them. Now, many Muslims get up in arms and go on the rampage when they believe that Mohammed has been insulted. Meanwhile, there are self-servicing people who flatter the Muslims by conveniently wording things about the history of Islam in a way to make what Mohammed did appear not only benign but downright Messianic.

Well, war is wrong, period. It doesn't matter whether or Mohammed said it's okay or even good for you, which he said, it is still wrong.

Jesus was right, and Mohammed was wrong. If the Muslims don't like it, we aren't going to lie to make them feel better. If they want to stand with Mohammed at the end of time, we won't use any coercive means to get them to do otherwise. Will they afford us the same since we choose to stand with Jesus and not with Mohammed? If Islam is a religion of peace, then Muslims shouldn't go to war. That's how it is for Christians. Real Christians don't make war.
