Thief gets ticket to Paradise.

Christ’s selfless act on the Cross to abolish sin and death is all the proof we need of a literal, 6-day Creation. His resurrection to defeat death affirms God’s account of Creation as it is written in Genesis 1.
There’s no stronger argument to be made.
The evolution of animals into man requires bloodshed and death to be successful but God says there was no death before Adam [Romans 5:12; 1 Corinthians 15:21-22]. Death, both physical and spiritual, is the consequence of Adam’s sin against God [Genesis 3:19]. To say that death existed before Adam is to say that death is not the consequence of Adam’s sin. Believing in death before Adam removes our responsibility for our sin, calls God a liar and renders Him useless because Christ’s sacrifice becomes vain.
“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned–”
[Romans 5:12 NASB]
“For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.”
[1 Corinthians 15:21-22 NASB]
And this man, Adam, was around from the beginning. How else could Paul say this?
“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.”
[Romans 1:20 NASB]
Seen and understood since the Creation of the world by whom? Man (Adam) who was present from the beginning.
Human evolutionary theory is a direct assault on the deity of Christ.
I would encourage any Christian who is considering human evolutionary theory as valid to please TH!NK about the Cross and meditate on the Gospel. The reality that before Adam’s sin there was no death is a necessary part of the Gospel that cannot be removed.
If we can’t believe God about Creation, why should we ever have reason to believe Him about Salvation?
Dr. Patrick Moore, PhD., says he left Greenpeace in 1986 because they began adopting positions that were not backed by science.
I don’t know if the man is a Christian but he successfully defines the difference between the biblical idea of the stewardship of Creation (or stewardship of the earth) and what has become known today as environmentalism [1:19-2:21].
When the biblical idea of the stewardship of Creation results in the detriment of human life is when it crosses the line into environmentalism. As Christians, I believe we should steer clear of the word and use the biblical term.
Remember, stewardship of Creation is entirely biblical and the result is never to the detriment of human life [Genesis 1:26-31]. Environmentalism elevates the planet and the animals above humanity and the result is always to the detriment of human life.
I barely have words for this one because I’m still in shock that people actually think this way.
Here are some children being heckled by grown adults for singing Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA”.
At one point [1:46] the kids were even told they would burn in hell!
There’s so much crazy talk going on here I thought I was witnessing the beginnings of an Occupy camp.
And that harmonica guy at the very end? LOL!
Many Christians, today, hold to a belief in human evolutionary theory. This belief foundationally stems from looking first to secular origins science rather than God’s Word and trying to make God’s Word fit into that paradigm. As a result, all sorts of distortions of His Word arise and, unfortunately, permeate the minds of many professing Christians sometimes even with greater influence than the Gospel.
I came across this graphic today which helped me to solidify something I have been tossing around in my head for a while. It was presented in a Christian forum I frequent by a professing Christian. While it is not my intention to call anyone’s faith into question, it is certainly my intention to call into question an incorrect teaching of our origins and to present the truth of God’s Word. Here’s the graphic:
This is a false statement but it can be made true by changing one word – the very first one. Instead of “evolution” it should say “sanctification”. That would be entirely biblical.
Evolution is the transformation of the flesh to perfection, and we know our flesh is our enemy. We should have no interest in perfecting it.
Sanctification, out of our salvation in Jesus, is the transformation of the spirit/soul to perfection, which evolutionary theory denies the existence of, and is our born-again ambition – to become more like Christ. It is the Holy Spirit who sanctifies us both at the moment of our salvation and also over our lifetime walk with Jesus.
Paul writes of sanctification here while warning of the dangers of abandoning correct tradition:
But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth. It was for this He called you through our gospel, that you may gain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught, whether by word of mouth or by letter from us.
[2 Thessalonians 2:13-15 NASB]
Our flesh has been crucified with Christ and is passing away with the rest of Creation, not evolving into something better.
“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
[Galatians 2:20 NASB] see also 5:24
Listen to Romans 5-8, particularly 5:12-8:25. Paul highlights in great detail the battle between our dead, sinful flesh and our renewed spirit in Christ using himself as an example. This passage also teaches the reality that death, both physical and spiritual, is a result of Adam’s sin (the “man” in 5:12). This is an essential and inseparable part of the Gospel! This truth is entirely beneficial to meditate on especially if you are struggling with evolutionary issues as a Christian. Why? Because human evolutionary theory teaches that death and destruction have always existed and have actually led to the development of man. So, if death is not a consequence of Adam’s sin, God is a liar and Christ’s sacrifice is vain.
Clearly, human evolutionary theory is a man-made idea in opposition to God’s Word. I consider human evolutionary theory to be a Beast System Ideology. You can learn more about that here.
To help make this new book launch successful, share this video amongst your various social networks. As a special for the new release, I am making both my new book (signed) together with my newest DVD set (four sessions) “The Return is Near” available for a really great discount. Thank you so much for all of your support.
I’ve just finished reading the Mideast Beast and I strongly recommend that you read this book and get the DVDs. I believe it is the responsibility of every Christian to know the truth about the times we are in so we may better serve those around us by getting strong in the Word and sharing Christ with them. The most challenging days of the Church are only just ahead.
It has been my experience over the past few years of studying these things that once your eyes are opened, you will wonder how you thought anything other and you will realize that the answer has been there all along for us to discover. What is so refreshing is that these things fit Scripture exactly and there is no speculation involved. At the conclusion of the book you will be satisfied and left with answered questions rather than an imaginative tapestry of sensational scenarios.
The author properly identifies the Antichrist’s kingdom by showing that Scripture does not prophesy a renewed Roman Empire but a revived Islamic Caliphate and, in doing so, shows us exactly where we are on the timeline of the last days. He also effectively dismantles other false, end-time doctrines and shares extremely valuable insights and techniques on witnessing to Muslims. Joel Richardson’s biblical origin and definition of Islam is scripturally on the mark and it is something every Christian needs to be aware of in order to better reach Muslims with the salvation of Jesus Christ.
Quite simply, I’m amazed!
“YOU DID IT! Venue Cancels Radical Islamic Conference
On Thursday, June 7, we sent out a special e-mail alert asking you to contact The Meadows Club of Rolling Meadows, Illinois about their hosting of a conference by the jihadist group named Hizb ut-Tahrir (HUT). The venue was flooded by emails and phone calls, and it didn’t take long before they decided to cancel the event. A few days later Hizb ut-Tahrir’s website announced that they had found another venue that would remain secret until closer to the conference date, which is this Sunday, June 17. Stay alert and stay tuned! We can do this again!”
Original post: 6/7/2012
An Islamic extremist group called Hizb ut-Tahrir that opposes democracy and supports violent jihad, including the killing of U.S. soldiers, is coming to Rolling Meadows, Illinois on June 17. The conference, titled “Revolution: Liberation by Revelation–Muslims Marching Toward Victory” is about how Muslims must help resurrect the Caliphate and institute Sharia-based governance.
The event is to be held at the Meadows Club at 2950 W. Golf Rd from noon to 4:00 PM EST.
If you wish to express your opinion to the Meadows Club, the business can be contacted at email@example.com or called at 847-640-3200.
CHRISTIANS… just remember in your responses that Muslims need Jesus, too. “Muslim” is only the name given to those who are enslaved by the false religion of Islam.

This is a Muslim scholar who lives in GREAT BRITAIN. Yes, that would be England.
For those of you who are unaware, what’s going on in the UK is an example of what’s beginning here in the United States. They’re a bit further along.

The lesser concern. Even though we are facing a threat of extinction of our current way of life in our country and around the world by a violent, totalitarian system of beliefs that inexplicably has the favor of our current world leaders, believe it or not, this is the lesser concern. The more important questions to consider are does God have anything to say about this time? What is the eternal perspective to all of these things?
Well, God does have something to say about it and He’s unsealing the Book of Daniel in order to tell us.
“But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”
[Daniel 12:4 NASB]
The greater concern. The spiritual reality of what is actually happening lies in Bible prophecy… God’s Word.
In proper context, Daniel 12:4 means at the time of the end many people will be searching the pages of Daniel’s book for prophetic insight because their knowledge will have increased. Knowledge of what? Their knowledge of history and current world trends. This can only happen with the unfolding of time that reveals these things to us.
It is being unsealed right now because it is the right time in history. This means that all the previously held interpretations about a revived Roman Empire in Daniel’s prophetic passages cannot be true. Christian, do your own due diligence and check it out for yourself. The empire that is reviving is the Islamic Caliphate.
Did you know that Islam actually teaches that the coming biblical Antichrist will be the savior of the world? That’s astounding!
That means there are a billion plus people in the world waiting for the appearance of the Antichrist to pledge their allegiance to him. It’s time for the Church to wake up and realize what we are dealing with.
I am sincerely praying that the Church in this country and around the world wakes up to these truths. Islam isn’t going away until Christ returns.
