JEWISH REP. COHEN BATTLES ANTISEMITISM AND RACISM IN RE-ELECTION: LOOK DEEPER

The following article is receiving much attention on the Internet.
"Jewish Rep. Cohen Battles Antisemitism and Racism In Re-Election," by Mary Ann Akers. The Washington Post February 13, 2008. She starts out her article by saying the following:

If you thought race was an uncomfortable issue in the Democratic presidential primary, wait 'til you get a load of what's going on in the Democratic primary in the Memphis area's 9th District of Tennessee, where a shockingly worded flier paints Jewish Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) as a Jesus hater.

Anti-Cohen Flier

Is it possible for people to look at this event in the light of absolute truth?

The anti-Cohen flier says, "the JEWS HATE Jesus." Well, that is a blanket statement that is not true. There are Jews who hate Jesus, but not all Jews hate Jesus. Also, the term or name "Jew" here could use defining. Is the flier referring to ethnicity or religion or cultural background or what? What did the flier's creator have in mind?

Getting beyond that level, it isn't anti-Semitic (a misnomer since Semitic peoples include many more than the direct descendants of Judah) to point out that Jesus said that those who reject him hate God and Jesus. It is simply stating a truth when meant in exactly the sense Jesus means.

What Jesus means is that if one is consistent (non hypocritical) one must necessarily agree with Jesus. It's inescapable. If one disagrees with Jesus, it is because of some level of hypocrisy that exists by virtue of the lack of the kind and degree of love Jesus says is God. Regardless of protestations to the contrary by non-believers, the more they are confronted by the stark choice of the full implications of the central commandments as Jesus revealed them (their meanings), the more those non-believers will show their true hostility to the said kind and degree of love (the only real kind, as Jesus explained "real"). They will show themselves to be haters of that love, who is God with whom Jesus is one spirit.

Many people (souls) hate the implications and seek to distract, twist, obfuscate, deceive, etc., because they just do not want to even begin to attempt to live up to the higher and highest conceivable standard that is pure consistency. To attempt it would mean not being able to continue for self apart from God. God here though includes everyone who is willing and desirous and to the degree of that willingness and desire and actualizing the same {not easy or even possible within this worldly world, hence the coming (exact time unknown to any but God) more obvious divine intervention.}

Christians do not have to refrain from saying that non-believers hate Jesus. They are to take care often enough to clarify that they aren't lumping all ethnic Jews together in instances where doing so creates a fallacy.

Real Christians know that the worldly government is the secular government. That secular government is built upon hypocrisy. It is a coercive government. It is an inherently flawed system, inherently divided against itself, which divided houses according to Jesus will not remain standing. Therefore, it is correct that a Christian may not vote for any non-believer or ever vote under the rules of the flawed system. Christians cannot vote under those rules. Those rules are themselves antichrist designed by antichrists. The Christian is to be about bringing forth only what Jesus is talking about. Only that is consistent.

This just stops people dead (literally) in their tracks. They are dead of this spirit. They hear it but don't really hear it. They just rush away pretending that just because, as Jesus said, few there be that find it, it must be false and excusable to ignore. It isn't false and there is no excuse for ignoring it.

We are required to bring forth. We are required to do the things the secular government is designed to excuse away under its fallacious principle that it is the false-democracy that decides the law. The law isn't what the majority of registered voters decides within limited geographical limits and set forth by their elected so-called secular representatives. The real law is exactly what Jesus said it is. The secular is actually unlawful.

Wherever the secular diverges from the New Commandment, which spiritually is everywhere, that secular is illegal. Of course, being consistent with the New Commandment is non-secular.

Of course no Christian can vote for Steve Cohen if Steve is not a Christian. Steve though is running for a non-Christian position, so the point of the flier is non-Christian to begin with. In other words, Cohen is wrong but so are the supporters of the thrust of the flier, which flier is only partial-truth.

There is more going on with the flier than Cohen's Jewishness. His support for homosexuality is also at issue. The Real Liberal Christian Church is against coercion. We are for souls choosing harmlessness over sexually harmful behavior that promotes diseases and which is an opening for further harm such as sadomasochism and pedophilia and all the other behaviors the doers of which finally seek sanctioning from the secular government.

One Black minister reportedly stated, "He's not black, and he can't represent me. That's just the bottom line." Based upon that, the author of The Washington Post article, Mary Ann Akers, agrees not so subtly to lump together the Blacks against Cohen as racists. Well, in this so-called democracy, anyone who wants to think that only those of the same color can represent him or her is entitled to vote that way and promote it to others. Is it a racist or ethnically bigoted error? Yes. Can a democracy be a democracy where such ideas are outlawed? How do you define democracy?

People can vote themselves into fascism and racism and right out of the supposed democratic right ever to vote again. That's why the founders designed the convoluted checks and balances system — to make it difficult to undo the system. It will fall anyway, because it isn't perfect, just "more perfect" for awhile than was King George's system.

King George is gone though, and we were always though to compare the current secular system with the vision of Jesus Christ. Why settle for second best when we can bring forth the perfect together by all being as Christlike as possible? Why fear the implications of the New Commandment? Why stand against what will heal each and all, the entire planet, and the whole of existence? Why be for war, greed, and the other lusts and excesses? Why be for what is wrong?

Show Faith

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16.

If you believe Jesus's words, then show faith. Shine the light. Come together spiritually and in holiness, as one heart and one soul, with all others who likewise believe. Together, we can bring forth the good works for which Jesus calls. Freely give what you receive so all his lambs and sheep may be fed. Cleans the real temple within (the kingdom of Heaven is within; God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit dwell within) of all that Jesus cleansed from the Temple in Jerusalem (selfish and false gain). The resulting bounty of this synergistic work will be magnified by God and overflow into feeding house after house. Many who would not otherwise see the light will convert to real love until the whole of the Earth shall have been reborn, conflated with Jesus's new vision of Heaven, as prophesied by Isaiah (Isaiah 65:17; 66:22).

Enter Each Other's Labor of Real Love, as Jesus Said

The following should appear at the end of every post:

According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":

Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.

Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.

Political Campaign Intervention

Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.

Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.

Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:

  • Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
  • Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
  • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
  • Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
  • Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office

Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:

  • The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
  • Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
  • We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
  • When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
  • It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
  • We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
  • We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
  • When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
  • We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
  • It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
