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)

    • Great video and interesting to watch here..I like these kind of posting and new updates as well..

      • Hello Agnus,

        Reportedly, it was recorded via a cell phone. It was banned by YouTube. Now, that's offensive.

        I wouldn't know whether you would know who Walter Cronkite is. He would have put it on the CBS Evening News for the whole of America to see. He would shutdown Israel from continuing to be extreme savages and land thieves. Are we beasts or Homo sapiens, or are Homo sapiens just beasts?

        Walter Cronkite showed the Vietnam War right on the Evening News for all to see night after night. He showed mass murder on the steps of churches. He showed dormitories being riddled by machine-gun fire from racist militarists in the Deep South of the United States. Now that was journalism. The stuff they do over at FOX News is not journalism. It's sickening government propaganda.

        The thing that has killed journalism is greed — corporate greed primarily. The corporations are used to drive fascistic ideology. That's why Gaza reminds one so much of Guernica, April 1937 (the Spanish Civil War that started off WWII).

        We won't have peace until the people finally give up and overcome war. We will never have peace through militarism, never. We must abolish the Pentagon and not replace it with anything of the kind. All the nation must follow this.

        God bless,

      I see a lot of commentary around all forms of media on both sides of the coin. The Jews did this, the Arabs did that, the Jews didn't do this, the Arabs didn't do that...

      But what I rarely ever see, is folks simply stating that God is in control!

      If one side or the other, or both sides, are sinning, and doing the wrong thing, will it not be God who is the final judge?

      Isn't God watching as all of this is happening? Doesn't he know the hearts of each and every person involved in the conflict(s)?

      Let me give you an example, here is our Church's stand on the subject of: "The Middle East Conflict"

      "First read Genesis Chapters 16 & 17. After that, you will have found where this current conflict started! God was in control then, and God is in control now.

      God is well aware of what is happening now, and he is already in the know about what is going to be happening in the future.

      This is not the business of the Christian. To think otherwise, is to stray from the business of the Christian.

      What is the business of the Christian?

      Read Luke 10:26-28

      Read Matthew 28:18-20

      Then what should these folks in the conflict be doing then, if they are supposed to be trusting God, and letting God be the Master of their lives?

      Read Romans 12:17-21

      Nowhere in the Bible does the Lord Jesus tell Christians to get involved with sinning. Let the sinners sin, and steer clear of them, except to preach the Gospel to them, and that's it...

      God will punish the wicked for their wickedness, not us. Let Him do His job, and we will do ours."

      Satan is quick to magnify ANY conflict, in the hopes that Christians will jump on board. He does a good job indeed! Look how many Christians are more concerned with the conflict itself, as opposed to spreading the Gospel and saving our fellow man from Hell as we were ordered to!

      Then how do we ease the suffering of the world then?

      Read Matthew 28:18-20

      Do what it says, and ignore the distractions that Satan puts in front of us everyday, in the hopes that we will stray from Matthew 28:18-20

      Our opinion is not a popular one, but it is a biblical one. And that is what counts at the Bema Judgment Seat.

      • Hello Guy Vestal,

        Both sides in the conflict are wrong. "And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:" (John 16:8 KJVR)

        By our words, "And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." (Matthew 16:19 KJVR)
        We bind evil and loose love with our words and deeds.

        The business of the Christian is Jesus's version of the Golden Rule. He showed it and spoke it. He also said, "Serpents, generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?" (Matthew 23:33)

        We practice the Golden Rule when we host the video; because, if we were the Gazans, we would want someone telling the world of our imprisonment and the theft of our lands and all the degradations we have suffered at the hands of the hardhearted. The Palestinians have the lesser sin in this conflict. God sees it and says it.

        "Blessed" are "the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." (Matthew 5:9 KJVR)

        We can't make peace with our eyes and ears and mouths shut. We can't move others to peace when they are ignorant about the horrors of war and don't know the truth about who has done what to whom.

        No one is responsible enough until he or she has heard and rejected truth. First it must be offered to them.

        But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand. (Ezekiel 33:6 KJVR),

        Of course, I take your point that once they've been told, if they don't turn, then "Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." (Matthew 15:14 KJVR)

        Then they are separated away.

        Jesus said unto them, "If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth." (John 9:41 KJVR)

        For those who don't know, the Bema Seat Judgment is also known as the Great White Throne Judgment by some but referred to a separate judgment just for Christians by others. This area is what is commonly termed evangelical eschatology. It comes from the Greek eskhatos, meaning end, last, final, ultimate result, etc. The Bema Seat Judgment is about rewarding the sheep. It is semantical.

        Readers, understand that this all falls within the spectrum of debate as to the literalness versus figurativeness of the words. We must never lose sight of the fact that Jesus regularly used words such as ""like unto"."

        Now this is important. "And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately." (Luke 12:36 KJVR)

        So when I say to you (anyone) to help bring forth via the Christian Commons and you refuse, who are we?

        "Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed" is "that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite" his "fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for" him ", and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint" him "his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 24:45-51 KJVR)

        That pertains to the Israelis as well. They need to be warned.

        Guy, if you want to explain further to the readers here what you mean specifically by the Bema Seat, etc., go ahead and add another comment to that end. You can say what the name of your church is, etc., and any denomination and the like to help people to sort things. That sort of information is all right here. There are limits of course. Links to porn wouldn't be tolerated from within my house (which you would never do I know), but links so people may come to better understand the different theologies is fine from an "educational" perspective. Much of what Jesus says is nearly incomprehensible to those who never consider the different competing theologies of the Jews and others.

        God bless,

        Tom Usher

      I answered your comment, but because my answer would touch on other subjects in the theme, and because I didn't want to type all night, and stream down your comments with a big long response, I did a podcast. This way I kill two birds with one stone. It is 1 hour in length, so 9 out of 10 will refuse to listen. But that is ok, most of those are the same types that look at their watch whilst the Pastor is in his "sermon mode" LOL

      Podcast is here

      • Hello Guy,

        In your podcast, you said, "Shut up and do as you're told" in reference to obeying the secular government. You did that based upon Paul's teachings. If that is correct in the blanket sense I take it you intend, then Peter and John were flatly wrong concerning how they handled the Sanhedrin, as follows:

        But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name. And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. (Acts 4:17-20 KJVR)

        In other words, Peter and John said, "No" to the Sanhedrin. They would, and did, continue speaking and teaching in the name of Jesus. They would have done so regardless of anything coming out from the Sanhedrin self-authorized, so-called power.

        This matters. If we are told by the secular state to kill or to do any other thing that violates an express commandment of Jesus and we do the will of that secular state or any other state, we sin against God. Surely, either Paul was wrong or you are misconstruing.

        Paul was wrong. Paul created confusion. I have never learned anything reading Paul other than the mistakes of Paul to be avoided. Paul was not infallible.

        You say that God doesn't need our help but that we are to believe on Jesus's name and go make disciples of all nations. Well, why doesn't God make those disciples himself without you? Also, what is it to believe Jesus's name? Those are rhetorical questions, but you are free to address them.

        Jesus did not kneel to the Sanhedrin. He spoke against them — against the powers and principalities. We are to do that too.

        You also said "a sin is a sin is a sin" by which you meant that all sin is the same. Well all sin is sin but not all sin is equally offensive to God. Jesus said that the one who turned him over to Pontius Pilate had the greater sin. Sin is absolute and relative at the same time.

        I also heard you tell people to vote in the secular elections as Jesus would vote. Jesus doesn't vote in any such elections.

        The teaching that we are to do what the evil powers tell us to do is designed to prevent us from bringing forth the feeding of the lambs and sheep of God in both body and spirit thereby overturning those powers in truth. We aren't violently and coercively to fight back against anyone. We are not to obey evil demanding from us that which is God's. We are to refuse even to the point of being crucified.

        Guy, there is no way to ignore oppression while being Christlike. Preaching what is written is not enough. Doing what is written is required.

        Do you respond in the affirmative or hold your peace? (asked in a very calm, matter-of-fact manner)

        If you respond, please do so in writing. People may read at different speeds.

        Blessings Of Truth To You,

        Tom Usher

    • Video is good.

      • Hello C. S.,

        It is good to expose those who have been warned over and over and over but who do not repent.

        To clarify, I am not the one who did the recording. I don't know who did it.

        Thank you for watching it and for supporting me that I linked to it to spread the truth of the utter abominations occurring at the bloody hands of the false-Zionists who founded their nation-state by terrorism and deceit, as so many nations are want to do, but that must stop and stop with the Israelis or the wrath will come.


        Tom Usher

    • Video is nice and needs a strong heart to see, really.

    • You captured it by your cell, but its clear to see. Your cell must having good quality camera.

    • Guy Vestal

      Greetings Tom...

      If you respond, please do so in writing.

      It is only on rare occasions when I can kill 2 or 3 birds with one stone, that I answer with a podcast. So fear not.

      You did that based upon Paul's teachings.

      I did that based upon the Lord's teachings. The 13 "Pauline Epistles" are just as "God Breathed" as the other 53 books. God is the "Author", Paul is the "writer".

      If that is correct in the blanket sense

      It is not. My statement was directed towards decisions that man makes concerning laws he makes. The examples would be Abortion & Same-sex marriage. Man's votes brought the laws in, man must respect them. Man's judiciary floats them, man must respect it.

      God told us things like this would happen the day the Israelites chose a "King" to rule over them, as opposed to God.

      1 Samuel 8:5-22

      God warned them what would happen, and it is happening. Mankind freely chose "self rule" over God's rule, now mankind must live with that decision.

      then Peter and John were flatly wrong concerning how they handled the Sanhedrin

      Nope. Matthew 28:18-20 is the one exception to that rule. Christ specifically overthrows mans authority in that matter in verse 18: " And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me" He then goes on to give the command/commission that the aforementioned authority applies to.

      If we are told by the secular state to kill or to do any other thing that violates an express commandment of Jesus and we do the will of that secular state or any other state, we sin against God.

      Again, as I said in the podcast you are referring to, "Horns of a dilemma", gored no matter which way we turn. We disobey God, we sin, we disobey the institution of government, we sin. It is a bed of our own making. No one ever said being a disciple of Christ was going to be easy.

      either Paul was wrong or you are misconstruing.

      Paul and I could both be wrong more than likely because we are both human. But the 13 Pauline Epistles are God breathed, and those words are not able to be in error.

      Paul was wrong. Paul created confusion. I have never learned anything reading Paul other than the mistakes of Paul to be avoided. Paul was not infallible.

      Again, more than likely, ANY HUMAN, including you and I are more than likely wrong, many a time. That is part of being human. If you have learned nothing from the 13 Pauline Epistles, it is not Paul that was teaching you, but God. The 13 books are God breathed, and it is God you paid no heed to. I suggest re-reading them, God has many things to teach. No human is "infallible", that includes you and I.

      why doesn't God make those disciples himself without you?

      Freewill. It started as a choice when Eve bit the fruit in the garden, and it is still a choice.

      Sin is absolute and relative at the same time.

      Then by that standard, so is forgiveness, and so is Grace. God only forgives "a little bit" sometimes, and He only gives out "some" grace sometimes.

      I prefer a loving God, who means what He says, and says what He means. Not a flip-flop waffle boy that changes His mind on the fly. God's character will not allow "levels of severity", to say so would also say that he can "tolerate some sin more than others." God tolerates NO SIN, at any time. ALL SIN is offensive. Be it a dollar, or a dime, it is all the same cash. By your interpretation, the "original sin" is much lesser than others! It was simply a refusal to follow orders, not nearly as bad as murder?

      Jesus did not kneel to the Sanhedrin. He spoke against them — against the powers and principalities. We are to do that too.

      He is not required to bow before no one. he made that clear to Satan in the desert when asked to do so in exchange for the kingdoms of the world. He follows God's law, He chose no human to rule over Him. We did. He chose the Father, we turned our backs on the Father.

      Jesus doesn't vote in any such elections.

      Pretty desperate to have to twist a cliche to prove a point? Jesus may not stand in line, step into a booth, and cast His vote, then return the ballot. But to think He does not hold sway over the politics of man is to ignore Exodus 4:21 & Exodus 11:9

      The teaching that we are to do what the evil powers tell us to do is designed to prevent us from bringing forth the feeding of the lambs and sheep of God in both body and spirit

      The "teaching" that we are to do is right here: Matthew 28:20 "teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you."

      Guy, there is no way to ignore oppression while being Christlike. Preaching what is written is not enough. Doing what is written is required.

      Exalting sin is not taught anywhere in the Bible. Using sin to combat sin is taught nowhere in the 66 books. Causing others to sin by exalting sin? The "Middle East conflict brings out sin on BOTH sides of the coin. BOTH sides are wrong, ergo BOTH supporters of BOTH sides are wrong by default. Building an agenda on the sin of others is only exalting the sin of others.

      And how do you figure that I am not "doing what is written"? I do sin, in fact, I sin daily, just like you, and all other humans.

      So here is a question: You have had two opportunities to address my original concern, yet you have not? Why? Here... Let me blockquote it here, so we can get back to my original statement, now that we have danced around it twice...

      But what I rarely ever see, is folks simply stating that God is in control!

      Is God in "control" or not? yes or no is all that is needed, no need to feel that you have to justify the answer, I am satisfied with Yes or No only if you choose.

      "If" God is in control, then what do we really think we are going to do when we have no "control"?

      Is God:




      If He is all three, doesn't that give Him control by default because we are not any of the three?

      And lastly, is there/are there specific verse(s) in the Bible that specifically state that causing descension on the subjects of the USA & Israel are required teaching?

      How does that "Blame game" work again?

      Genesis 3:12 "The man said, The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate."

      Oh ya, that's right! It didn't work then, and it still doesn't work now. LOL

      The blame for all the ills of the world belongs to Satan, and humanity as a whole. Not just Bush/Cheney/Rove/The GOP the majority of the time.

      • Guy Vestal of Genesis Christian Ministries,
        Ordinarily, I try to take people's comments point-by-point in order.
        Sometimes it's better not to, as here.
        When a stranger, as you are to me, says something or poses something about God's being in control, am I obligated to pipe up "that's right"? If I don't echo with everyone an "Amen," am I dancing around? I know that's not the case. You made how many comments here and I've answered how many comments here before you've characterized me as one who beats around the bush? Guy, have you addressed every one of my points? No, you have not, even as you say I'm already ducking. When is it and isn't it the appropriate point at which to point out that someone is avoiding? You are wildly premature. That point can come instantly, but it certainly did not in this case and hasn't come yet and won't. I have not ducked and will not duck anything you say. I may very well end up ignoring you after you've been offered more than enough, which is now.
        Jesus didn't even always answer everyone's direct questions. He sometimes asked questions to reveal a lack of worthiness on the part of those who came to tempt him, to test him, even though they knew he was speaking right. I'm fine with that (within the full context). Was he dancing around them? When I dance around anything, you'll know it and so will everyone else. That time has not come. I haven't danced or ducked anything. Is that clear. (Very matter-of-factly — no sarcasm; not negative condescension; rhetorical)
        Now, since you are apparently accustomed in your mind's eye to dealing with people ostensibly professing Christianity who don't hold that God is the ultimate power, let me say, so that there will be less confusion and less idle speculation, it's a given. It's a statement of the obvious. Debate amongst people who profess to be Christians should start there, taken for granted, without having to state the obvious, and should rather commence with the nature of how God exercises, and will exercise, that control.
        You have not precluded my elaborating on this point, but why say that I don't need to feel obligated to justify myself by way of fleshing it out for people, perhaps you included. That's rhetorical also by the way, hence I've dispensed with some question marks in this comment just to reinforce that.
        Secondly, you take it as an article of faith of your religion, which is not my religion as has become abundantly clear, that Paul's letters were "God breathed." They were not. They were authored by Paul, not always seeing much light, if any. If you will now turn back to say that God is in control of all things, therefore God authored them, there is no point in attempting to converse with you further.
        You are of the opinion that those (the committee) who chose what would and wouldn't be called Holy Scripture that resulted in the 66 books chose correctly. Interesting number that: 66. They did not choose correctly. Paul's letters came after Jesus both spoke and did his deeds. Paul's letters are inconsistent with Jesus's words and deeds. Nothing inconsistent with Jesus is Christian, period. Anything inconsistent with Jesus is antichrist. Enough said, I trust, for those who can receive it — be convicted by their consciences.
        If you choose to continue with the inconsistencies by rationalizing as you have, that's your freewill choice of which God is not the author. God is not the author of the rebellion against him, contrary to the necessary conclusion of your religion.
        For other readers now, I will be stating the obvious here but it bears stating. If John and Peter were correct (and they were correct) in refusing to do evil that even the then Sanhedrin (the supreme authority of the Jews at the time under Roman, mundane authority) ordered them to do, it is also correct that none of us follow evil orders of the secular state or any "theocratic" or religious state but rather face the penalty and punishment inflicted by Satan's state/Kingdom on Earth (by definition) and even go on to meet our real God. Guy Vestal would have you consider this the "Horns of a dilemma." There is no real dilemma here. There is only dilemma in Guy's mind. I don't suffer from his dilemma. Neither should you.
        Guy says Paul's letters are not able to be in error. Consider just the following one point, among the many others I've stated elsewhere on this website including in the series "Debate is Christian," of which Guy perhaps has not availed himself before deeming to preach here in my house against my God, Jesus, all other Christians, and me.
        For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13 KJVR)
        That's Paul. Now, here's Jesus:

        "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 7:21 KJVR)

        Paul says everyone calling upon the name "Jesus" (in whatever language) shall be saved. I tell you that on his deathbed, one simply mouthing "Jesus" is not necessarily going to be saved in this or the age to come. The "Lord" is "Jesus." To say the "Lord" is to say "Jesus." Saying either is not necessarily to believe. Believing on the level Paul used the term is not necessarily to be doing "the will of my Father which is in heaven."

        "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great." (Luke 6:46 KJVR)

        Now, my point to everyone is that it is painfully obvious to those who love the truth that "Pauline Christianity" has not brought forth.

        "Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither" can "a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." (Matthew 7:17-20 KJVR)

        Now Guy wants you to conclude that those amongst the Israelites who call themselves Zionists, but which are not real but rather false-hearted, do not have the greater sin in that they horned their way into the so-called Promised Land and used terrorism to establish their nation. He wants you to believe that you are not to stand up with Jesus speaking truth. To Guy, God is in control, so why speak out against injustice. In this case, the injustice is being done primarily to Arabs and primarily to Muslims. However, it is also being done against those professing Christ. So, when they come to take Guy away to prison for speaking his vision, keep silent. However, that would not be practicing Christ's teachings or emulating him — plain and simple to those who love the truth and who don't put bitter for sweet.
        No, Guy is wrong. You are to speak out. When the Muslims do evil, you are to speak out. When you do evil, you are to speak within with Jesus and God, repent, and atone.
        Now Guy wrote the following:

        Sin is absolute and relative at the same time.

        Then by that standard, so is forgiveness, and so is Grace. God only forgives "a little bit" sometimes, and He only gives out "some" grace sometimes.
        I prefer a loving God, who means what He says, and says what He means. Not a flip-flop waffle boy that changes His mind on the fly.

        He wrote that in response to Jesus's words that Pontius Pilate had the lesser sin. So for Guy, Jesus is a flip-flopper "waffle boy." Well, I'll take as many steps away from Guy as necessary so that I won't be associated with him come that White Throne Judgment and Bema Seat Judgment of which he speaks. I completely disassociate myself from Guy's views.
        Guy doesn't read carefully and completely. Jesus teaches about fewer stripes for lesser sins.

        "And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not" himself, "neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many" stripes. "But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few" stripes. "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more." (Luke 12:47-48 KJVR)

        Guy wrote of Jesus, "He is not required to bow before no one." This means that Jesus is required to bow before everyone. That is false. It is a double negative — too careless and indicative.
        Guy also says that Jesus "chose no human to rule over Him. We did." Well, Jesus is human, but I have not chosen others then God in one with Jesus in righteousness to rule over me. Guy presumes to speak for me. Who gave him leave? I did not and do not at this point.
        As for what Guy had to say about voting, it is so tangled that one is hard pressed to sort it out for him. Clearly, Jesus voted and votes for no worldly leader. Guy just made that point but now reverses himself (flip-flops and waffles). I will leave it there for him to ponder. As for desperation, I felt no such emotion, not even slightly.

        The teaching that we are to do what the evil powers tell us to do is designed to prevent us from bringing forth the feeding of the lambs and sheep of God in both body and spirit

        The "teaching" that we are to do is right here: Matthew 28:20 "teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you."

        Matthew 28:20 says to do the Christian Commons — to bring forth.

        "Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway," even "unto the end of the world." Amen. (Matthew 28:20 KJVR)

        "all things whatsoever I have commanded you" necessarily includes bringing forth the feeding of the lambs and sheep in body and spirit.
        Guy wants to cut that out from the ""all things"." Doing that is typically Pauline — error mounded upon error.

        So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, "Simon," son "of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these?" He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, "Feed my lambs." He saith to him again the second time, "Simon," son "of Jonas, lovest thou me?" He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, "Feed my sheep." He saith unto him the third time, "Simon," son "of Jonas, lovest thou me?" Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, "Feed my sheep." (John 21:15-17 KJVR)

        Now, there are those who claim that this doesn't mean what it means. They will not take it within the full context of Jesus's words and deeds. What are you going to do with such souls? You are going to be separated from them if you both believe and do. Professing belief is nothing without doing. After professing, the proof is in the deeds.
        [Note: I have stripped out the so-called emendations]

        "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed? or thirsty, and gave? When saw we thee a stranger, and took? or naked, and clothed? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did not to one of the least of these, ye did not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal." (Matthew 25:35-46 KJVR)

        For those who will rush to judgment that this does not apply to any but professed Christians, let me remind you of the other words by which the above must also fit in the full context.

        "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;" (Matthew 5:43-44 KJVR)


        Exalting sin is not taught anywhere in the Bible. Using sin to combat sin is taught nowhere in the 66 books. Causing others to sin by exalting sin? The "Middle East conflict brings out sin on BOTH sides of the coin. BOTH sides are wrong, ergo BOTH supporters of BOTH sides are wrong by default. Building an agenda on the sin of others is only exalting the sin of others.

        This is bitter for sweet. Nowhere have I ever said that either side in that conflict is right. Who though is the greater oppressor? The false-hearted, self-styled Zionists are the greater oppressor. I call for both sides not to oppress. The Zionists claim the God of Jesus and that Jesus was wrong. Let them stop misdirecting and giving God a bad name and reputation with their lies. The Muslims are likewise wrong concerning the teachings and example of Mohammed. I have made that very clear on this website, as a simple search and a reading of the results will clearly attest.
        Guy would have the prophets shut up. I would that people would open their ears.
        Guy thinks the prophets were not granted power. Jesus could do nothing without God, but he certainly could do things with God and did. Guy falsely imagines that I have no power by my words. He is sorely wrong.
        As for the issue of Omni, we are to be one with God and Jesus. If we are becoming one with them and with the Holy Spirit within and all about, how will Guy prevent us from becoming Omni? He will not.
        Guy is being the dog in the manger. So now I say clearly and plainly.

        "But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in" yourselves, "neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in." (Matthew 23:13 KJVR)

        Is the Christian Commons correct? Do you hold with the Luke-Acts Apostles in holding all things common? If the Christian Commons is wrong, how so is it wrong? Upon what words and deeds of Jesus Christ do you based such a claim? That is not rhetorical.
        Guy: "How does that "Blame game" work again?"
        You, Guy, take issue with Jesus.

        "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves." (Matthew 10:16 KJVR)

        Why call serpents, serpents? Why blame them? Is that your considered opinion, or have you given these things no thought? Go consider before you speak again. You are leading people astray. Of that, there is no doubt.
        I see that you invoked the names Bush (the one who said, "So what" concerning all the lies in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq), Cheney (the one who said it is time to go over to the "dark side" and who to this very day advocates waterboarding), and Rove (the admitted, chosen, unrepentant practitioner of the dark arts).
        You voted for Bush didn't you, Guy, both times?
        You've made your bed. Now go sleep in it, or repent and make atonement, for you are responsible and accountable with Bush, Cheney, and Rove for their sins as well. I am not, just as Jesus was not and is not responsible for the sins of Caesar, his dupes and minions or the dupes and minions of the chief priests and high priest of the Sanhedrin of the synagogue of Satan.

        "Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee." (Revelation 3:9 KJVR)

        I didn't vote for Bush, and I've repented of all secular votes while I offer up and stand by the Christian Commons as a liberal device by which the many may repent and atone and set things right.
        So, laugh me to scorn, Guy, the way they laughed Jesus to scorn.
        Blessings To All That They May Receive The Peace Of The Lord and LORD,

        • To All,In Guy Vestal's podcast, he said that the U.S. should allow Israel to do what it has to do vis-a-vis the Palestinians. Who can mistake that Guy is telling us all in a roundabout way not to counsel peace? What Guy has said here is not peacemaking, not even indirectly. On the one hand, Guy says not to be involved but to stay on what he considers message. I believe he calls it "missions field." (I had difficulty making out that term in his podcast.) On the other hand, he immerses himself, as here. He selects certain verses from Jesus but not others. When Jesus says, "blessed are the peace makers", Jesus is not saying don't speak against injustice, oppression, war, violence, greed, or any other unchecked lust. He is not saying don't do anything about those things. What Jesus says is don't coerce while you help to turn people and to alleviate pain and suffering. You will get what you do. You will end up on the receiving end.Guy didn't mention the multibillions of dollars the U.S. gives to Israel every year for Israel to then turn around and spend on U.S. weaponry, which it does. Does Guy also call for cutting off Israel from U.S. military funding and equipment? Let him say.Real Peace,Tom Usher

      Greetings Tom...

      You are leading people astray. Of that, there is no doubt.

      Ok. Your right! I am indeed a heretic, folks should run as far, and as fast as possible from me. :-)

      Well good luck! I hope you eventually make it on TBN's programming schedule. Keep plugging away faithfully, and maybe you can open for Joel Osteen one day! Don't let them rip you off tho, except nothing less than %15 of the gross, not the net. (Make sure the advertising kickback isn't included in rake tho!)

      • To Guy Vestal,

        This is in direct response to your comment submitted on 2009/01/07 at 3:53pm:

        Explanations for your reply are that you suffer from extremely low reading comprehension or you read the very short post above and looked at the video but did not even look around this site otherwise. Did you even look down the left and right columns here? You may also be the type who deliberately doesn't look around so that he may stay in his false-hearted bubble. What other possibilities are there? They all point to trouble.

        Try doing a site search here on "TBN," "Paul Crouch," and/or "Joel Osteen" before spouting off as you have. Then apologize if you are able.

        Guy, you are far, far closer to TBN and Joel Osteen than am I. Who can't see that who has his eyes open?

        Do you think that an unrepentant TBN or an unrepentant Joel Osteen are going to join the Christian Commons?

        I'm a communist (Christian, not Marxist), Guy. I'm a total pacifist. I stand squarely opposed to the prosperity preachers who have their reward in the here and now only.

        Really Guy, talk about ducking. You avoided everything here.

        As for heresy, what is orthodoxy? I say it's what Jesus lived. I don't hold with your Protestantism, as I also don't hold with the false-Catholics. I don't hold with your Paulism or Calvinism, sola hairsplitting and obfuscations, futile delaying-tactics, and excuses for not bringing forth, as one, as called for by Jesus.

        Calvin was not Jesus — not one with him in spirit.

        Tom Usher

        • Do you think that TBN or Joel Osteen would want someone who's anti-Pauline? I don't mean I'm anti-Paul. I'm anti-Pauline where the Pauline use Paul to the exclusion of Jesus, (don't reconcile them; can't) to excuse avoiding doing the commandments of Jesus and the will of God the Father in the real and New Heaven to come. Do you think that TBN or Osteen would have me (in agreement) even though I'm anti-patriotic? By anti-patriotic, I don't mean that I don't love the American people. I love them as Jesus loves them all even though he hates them all too at the same time.

          "If any" man "come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." (Luke 14:26 KJVR)

          His and mine is a love-hate relationship with fallen humanity.

          I say with Jesus, "The world" hates me,  "because I" too "testify of it, that the works thereof are evil." (John 7:7 KJVR)
