INFO ON ISMS

 

Dr. Mike Johnston and Dr. Ted Horton, Editors

ADVENTISM- cult teachings of Ellen G. White aka Seventh Day Adventism [1]
AGNOSTICISM- comes from the Latin word ignoramus, meaning “one who is ignorant.” Agnostics deny adequate evidence either proving or disproving the existence of God (Psalm 19:1; Rom. 1:20).
ASCETICISM- denial of pleasure in an attempt to please or pacify God (Matt. 23:4; Col. 2:20-22).
ATHEISM- a denial that there is a God, and a refusal to entertain any proof otherwise; fools (Psalm 14:1).
BRANHAMISM- belief system held by William Branham,  an anti-Semitic mid-20th century anti-Trinitarian Charismatic clairvoyant  who held city-wide “healing” revivals featuring occult practices (divination; kundalini).
NOTE: Charismatics often hail him as a church father.
BUDDHISM- an offshoot of Hinduism that began with the Buddha (enlightened one) around the 5th century BC in India.  Buddhism contains influences from Brahmanism, gods, and goddesses.  This -ism teaches a universal cosmic consciousness that is nonpersonal.  Man creates his own suffering in this life and his fate is determined by Karma and carried out by reincarnation.  Salvation occurs by the works of following Buddha’s teachings, ultimately entering Nirvana, or the place where the self is extinguished in the Void of the cosmic consciousness.
CATHOLICISM- cult Romanist Church including popery, blasphemy, and idolatry (Matt. 23:4-12).[2]
COMMUNISM- atheist totalitarian form of government whereby money and possessions are forcibly gathered and distributed by a government perceived to be the final sovereign authority over mankind.
CREATIONISM- belief system based upon Gen. 1:1: in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
DEISM- originated in England in the early 17th century as a rejection of orthodox Christianity. Deists asserted that reason could find evidence of God in nature and that God had created the world and then left it to operate under the natural laws he had devised (Psalm 14:1; Rom. 1:20).
EPICURIANISM- is a system of hedonist philosophy based upon the teachings of Epicurus (c340-c270 BC), who taught that pleasure is the highest good and ideal in life (Ecc. 2:1-10; Acts 17:8; Rom. 1:18-32).
EXISTENTIALISM- a 19th century philosophy that elevates subjective human experience (emotions, beliefs, etc) above objective (matter, creation, Scripture) for living in and dealing with a hostile and highly indifferent universe.
FASCISM- founded by Italian nationalists during WWI as socioeconomic suppression of any opposition through controlled terror, censorship, racism, and a aggregate policy of belligerence and dictatorial nationalism.
FATALISM- a belief that events are pre-fixed rendering human powerless to change them.
FUNDAMENTALISM (Christian)- strict adherence to specific Christian doctrines typically in opposition to the encroaching theology of Modernism. The term “fundamentalism” was originally coined in the 20th century to describe a specific body of doctrine that ultimately developed into a movement within the US Christian community.
HEDONISM- pleasure is happiness and thus becomes man’s ultimate goal (Rom. 1:18-32).
HUMANISM- an atheistic system whereby man is worshiped as the central focus of the universe and thus becomes the subject of all human enterprise.
JUDAISM- monotheistic religion of the Jews, tracing its origins to Abraham and having its spiritual and ethical principles embodied chiefly in the Hebrew Scriptures and the Talmud- all foundational to New Testament Christianity. Today Jews making aliyah to Israel await the rebuilding of the Temple and the coming of the Messiah to establish His promised 1000 year earthly reign in Jerusalem.
LEGALISM-
LIBERALISM- a paradoxical philosophy claiming tolerance to anything except Christianity. Sadducees were liberals (Matt. 16:6; 22:23; Acts 23:8).
MATERIALISM- acquiring things is the highest good for man; covetousness is idolatry (Col. 3:5; see also Mark 7:22; Rom. 1:29; Eph. 5:3).
MODERNISM- unholy penchant to modernize Christianity by removing and or replacing the ancient landmarks (Psalm 11:3; Prov. 22:28). Antithesis of FUNDAMENTALISM.
MONASTICISM- the works based religious practice of renouncing all worldly pursuits in order to fully devote one’s life to spiritual work.
MONOTHEISM- one who believes there is only one god [Christians, also Jews, Moslems, etc].
MYSTICISM- religious beliefs and practices that go beyond the liturgical and devotional forms of worship of mainstream faith, often by seeking out inner or esoteric meanings of conventional religious doctrine, and by engaging in spiritual practices such as breathing practices, prayer, contemplation and meditation, along with chanting and other activities designed to heighten spiritual awareness. Many facets of mysticism are now endorsed and practiced by Latter Rain leaders and member from the Charismatic movement.
OCCULTISM- Many facets of occulticism are now endorsed and practiced by Latter Rain leaders and Charismatic movement (ie, divination via words of knowledge, tongues, interpretation of tongues; necromancy; levitation; astral projection; bi-locations; slain in the spirit-kundalini; shamanism, and more).
PANTHEISM- god is intrinsically indentified with plants and animals, god is all and all is god (Deut 6:4; 1 John 5:7).
PENTECOSTALISM (includes Charismatics and the Latter Rain Movement)- denomination teaching extra-biblical messages through tongues, dreams, and visions, that places a heavy emphasis on miraculous healings and special “word of knowledge” messages and fosters a prosperity gospel.  The Pentecostal movement ignores biblical instruction and ordains women pastors and preachers, while teaching a works based salvation and denying the eternal security of the believer.
PLATONISM- the true world is actually the invisible world consisting of ideas and thoughts.
PLURALISM- religio-political system seeking the amalgamation of all diverse groups regardless of their belief or lifestyle.
POLYTHEISM- one who believes in many gods which are omnipotent and omniscient.
RELATIVISM- it doesn’t matter what you believe as long as you believe something and you feel its right for you, although it may not be right for someone else it is for you.
ROMANISM- see Catholicism
RUSSELLISM- blasphemous cult teachings of Charles Taze Russell aka as Jehovah’s Witnesses. [3]
SCIENTISM- the belief that science has the answers for our philosophical needs or  social problems.
SECULARISM- the view that religious considerations should be excluded from civil affairs or public education.
SOCIALISM- A system in which the means of producing and distributing goods are owned collectively under the auspices of the government. Forms the base for dictatorial control in Marxist-Leninist theory.
SPIRITICISM- belief in the existence of spirits – non-physical beings that live in the invisible or spirit world – and the ability of communication between these spirits and living people through mediumship. Many facets of spiriticism are now endorsed and practiced by Latter Rain leaders and member from the Charismatic movement.
STOISM- reason is the highest good, people are unaffected by pleasure and pain.
THEISM- is the belief there is a god a creator, both beyond and within the world who can intervene supernaturally. a creator and sustainer who sovereignly controls the world, that all things find their meaning and substance in this being.

Is Salvation Really Free?

I saw a post on Facebook just the other night that read “Noah wasn’t saved by grace, he was saved because he obeyed.”  The author of that statement went on to say that we must trust Christ as Saviour AND work to say saved.  He then went on to dust off the old familiar chestnut, “faith without works is dead.”  Well, is salvation by faith or is it by works?  Is it by a combination of the two?  Just what is really meant by the oft repeated, yet seldom understood, “faith without works is dead?”  We will try to gain some insight into these questions below.

First, let’s look at the statement, “Noah wasn’t saved by grace, he was saved because he obeyed.”  What type of salvation are we talking about specifically?  Genesis 6:8 reads, “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.”  So scripturally speaking, this post has already found contradiction.  If the writer was referring to soul salvation, he was most definitely wrong.  God only saves sinners on the basis of grace.  Regardless of dispensation, salvation is by grace through faith.  If, and this is a big if, because most posters of this meme use it to support a works based salvation, he was referring to temporal salvation, then he could be correct.  Had Noah disobeyed God and not built an ark, he would have been washed away in the flood; hence, he would not have been saved (physically).  Often times in the life of a Christian when we do not obey God we are not saved from the consequences of the sinful choices that we make.  This does not mean that we are not saved (soul-salvation, saved from hell, etc.).  Saved and salvation can refer to a physical or temporal salvation, and it can also refer to the standing of our eternal soul when we trust Christ as Saviour.  We must look for context.  The people of Nineveh who believed Jonah’s message were saved eternally and by the king’s decree the entire city repented, and changed their wicked ways and were saved physically (Jonah 3:10  And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.).

The next question to answer is the charge that we are saved by grace and works, or by grace and then we work to stay saved. Romans 11:6 says, “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.”  This means that it is one or the other; grace and works are mutually exclusive.  An old friend of mine used to say this verse is akin to saying that if it is nighttime outside your window, then it can’t also be daytime outside your window.  If you are saved by grace then you CANNOT be saved by works, works cannot play any part in the salvation.  The inverse is true also:  if you are saved by works then grace cannot play any part in the salvation.  So, since Scripture plainly says that it has to be one or the other, which is it?  Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.”  There will not be one person in Heaven who deserves to be there, or who will be able to say that they helped God out in any way, shape, or form in their getting to Heaven.  Someone out there, right now, is saying, “Ooh, ooh, but what about Ephesians 2:10?  What about that?  It says you have to do good works.  What about that?”  Let’s take a look at what it says.  Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”  Ephesians 2:8-10 is a progression.  Verses 8 and 9 deal with us getting saved and then verse 10 is after we are saved.  Notice this is talking about Christians as Paul says we and includes himself in the group.  Christians are God’s workmanship and are made to do good works.

Finally, we will look at the statement, “faith without works is dead.”  James 2:17 reads, “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.”  James 2:14 says, “What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?”  We have to ask the question, “save him from what?”  If a person has faith in Christ as Saviour, can that faith save him from going to hell, then the answer is yes.  If a person has no good works and is trusting in his faith alone to earn him rewards in Heaven, will his faith save him from chastisement, then the answer is no.  Remember, James was written to believers.  The context of James shows us that he is speaking of believers at the Judgment Seat of Christ.  Notice James 2:12, “So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.”  This could only be referring to the judgment of believers at the Judgment Seat of Christ.  In James 2:14 we find no believer will be saved (exempted) from the believer’s judgment of works.  No works will bring about no reward (profit).  James speaks of justification by works before men.  Paul speaks of justification by faith before God.  Dr. C. I. Scofield makes the following observation in the Scofield Bible:   “These are two aspects of one truth. Paul speaks of that which justifies man before God, namely: faith alone, wholly apart from works; James of the proof before men, that he who professes to have justifying faith really has it. Paul speaks of what God sees — faith; James of what men see — works, as the visible evidence of faith. Paul draws his illustration from (Gen_15:6) James from (Gen_22:1-19). James’ key phrase is “ye see” (Jam_2:24) for men cannot see faith except as manifested through works.”  James himself teaches salvation by faith when he says in chapter 2 and verse 23 “And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.”  James goes on to teach that years later he demonstrated that faith by obeying God in offering up Isaac.

Jesus finished the work of salvation on the cross.  We can be saved only by trusting His finished work.  Why not trust Christ as your only hope of Heaven?  Then, once that is settled, choose to serve Him and receive blessings, rewards, treasures in Heaven, profit for eternity.

Accreditation: A Skeptic’s Favorite Attack On Christian College Grads

Posted: June 11, 2017 in Accreditation, IFB
Tags: ,

Dr. James A., PhD.

I am a graduate of Calvary Christian College & Seminary (“CCCS”), a school started by Jack Van Impe and Michael Johnston (and also the alma mater of Dr. Kent Hovind). I have an EARNED PhD, preceded by a Master’s and Bachelor’s degree in theology. I also have an earned degree from law school which help start my career as a paralegal and professional investigator.  I have been an avid reader all of my life so much of what I have learned I would have learned in spite of my education in Bible college. Unfortunately, in a day where sophistry is more important than common sense, you almost have to have some kind of degree for people to take you seriously about anything. The same books you use as a college textbook are often available at a local library.

However, CCCS is not an “accredited” Christian college, and this seems to be a “problem” for many of whom I debate. “Problem” I say, because a school being either Christian or unaccredited is used by my skeptic foes as an ad hominem means to discredit my arguments. The tactic of attacking a person’s arguments based on their education goes all the way back to Jesus’ day when the enemies of Christ attempted to discredit His teaching because He didn’t graduate from a prestigious state-owned college (John 7:15). The same crowd also used this argument to discredit Christ’s disciples. (Acts 4:13). In fact, I have heard more objections to my PhD by atheists, skeptics, agnostics and liberals than objections to my actual arguments on any given topic. Ironically, most of the objectors are anonymous who themselves have no formal education. Moreover, if only the ‘educated’ can properly understand the content of a specialty, then nobody else would be able to comprehend someone like Dawkins unless they have an equal education, which begs the question as to why any atheist would attempt to use his arguments against a theist/creationist given that he must admit to his own lack of academic bereftment.

The objection always boils down to whether or not a person received their degree from an “accredited” school, or that my education is not valid because it was derived from a Christian college. Not only is this NOT a valid objection, it commits the genetic fallacy (attempting to discredit an argument solely on the grounds its source). If my degree was NOT valid, what would that have to do with the truth value of arguing that, for example, whatever begins to exist has a cause? Furthermore, the argument works both ways. The atheists I debate with engage in a special pleading fallacy by ignoring this fact. For example. The modern-day atheist champion, Richard Dawkins, does not have a degree in biology, yet his followers accept his views as a biologist as irrefutable proof that evolution is true. If atheists were consistent, they would admit that Dawkins’ opinions on biology as expert testimony would commit the fallacy of argumentum ad vericundiam (improper authority). Moreover, Dawkins also does not have a degree that majors in philosophy, and therefore would not be qualified to give an expert opinion as to why an evolutionary scientist should be honest about their findings-a philosophical matter, not a scientific one. (For more on demonstrating that evolution is far more a priori philosophical nonsense than it is science, see Phillip Johnson’s, Reason In the Balance)

Accreditation is only a recent development in our education system (1950s). Thus, if atheists were fair and consistent, they would ignore Marx, Nietzsche, Sartre, Hume, Russell, and a handful of other atheists, agnostics, and skeptics of whom all modern arguments for atheism have their nexus of whom never held “accredited” degrees. Furthermore, most of the colleges they graduated from were at the time Christian universities (Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Westminster, etc…). So if lack of accreditation and graduating from a Christian college discredits a person’s education, then all of atheism’s founding fathers should be discarded a priori before any debate relying on their premises can begin.

Accreditation is normally governed by statute. In other words, a board of people decide on what is appropriate to teach at a college, and how it should be taught, and the college receiving accreditation must comply with their regulations. Ironically, the atheist doesn’t seem to object at this point that the state dictating what any Christian college should teach in order to obtain accreditation would be a violation of the so-called ‘separation of church and state’ doctrine. The atheist is completely comfortable with maintaining this double standard, e.g., Christianity should not be supported or endorsed by government, but the government must put its stamp of approval on your Christian education or it’s not a valid degree. Of course, we know that the real motive behind the atheist arguments here is to actually get rid of theism altogether, so being exposed for a little hypocrisy is a small price to pay in achieving the greater good of the fight to completely privatize Christianity.

If accreditation was required to make all degrees valid, then no Christian university would be safe so long as the board responsible for issuing accreditation can be manipulated by personal bias against creationism, theology, Christian ethics, and the Bible. In fact, my position is that accreditation is a tool to do just that (after having read the Communist Manifesto, Humanist Manifesto, and Rules For Radicals): keep ‘religion’ out of the public school system, and indoctrinate our next generations with Marxism, marriage ‘equality’, moral relativism, and a disdain for the theistic foundations on which our country was built*. Today’s college students are often encouraged to engage in riots and protests, and even given college credit for it. They are offended by the slightest hint of disagreement that doesn’t kowtow with their violent relativism. One college professor was recently seen at a rally for President Trump hitting a Trump supporter over the head with a bike lock.

Sorry, but I’ll take my ‘non-accredited’ degree over the safety-pin standards of accredited colleges any day. Calvary Christian College & Seminary has a GRUELING work schedule. It is no diploma mill. You won’t pay for your course, and get a degree in the mail. YOU HAVE TO EARN IT. In fact, I did more writing and read more books to earn my degree at CCCS then I ever did in public school, or even law school (except for the case-law readings). A Christian college should not be subjected to state ‘accreditation’, and no Christian president of a Christian college should ever subject his college to one. It is an utterly silly argument to subject a person’s desire to be educated according to his/her beliefs to a system that dismisses those beliefs outright, and then attack that person’s arguments or opinions based on such faulty presuppositions about education.

Hermeneutic Premises for Bible Study

February 2, 2017 Leave a comment

Hermeneutic Premises

Dr. Mike Johnston

With exegesis as our goal, we study context and discover truth. It now becomes incumbent upon the student to examine this truth under the following three hermeneutic premises.

First, the Grammatical Premise

  • Scripture with one meaning can provide many applications
  • Take Scripture as normal language; “plain sense of the language”
  • Interpret words and Bible Books in light of the author’s times
  • Interpret according to the context
  • If an inanimate object describes a living being — then it’s figurative
  • If an expression is out of character with the thing described — it’s figurative
  • Parables are heavenly stories earthly meanings. Many on “Christian” television assign meanings to them the Lord never intended which causes deception in the church
  • Prophetic statements are to be taken literally and normally — unless the context compels otherwise

Second, the Historical Premise

  • Interpret in light of Biblical historical context
  • Revelation is basically Jewish and is progressive; later revelation explains earlier
  • Events of history become spiritual truths only if Scripture designates

Third, the Theological Premise

  • Any text without a context is a pretext
  • Scripture must be understood grammatically before it can be interpreted theologically
  • A doctrine is not Biblical unless it sums up all that Scripture says (The Old Scofield Bible offers many of these doctrinal summaries making for great study)
  • No contradictions in Scripture
  • An implied teaching must have support in another passage
  • If a verse seems to contradict established truth, the passage must be contextually evaluated to be rightly understood (this is where cults become egregious)

Israel’s 5 Covenants guarantee her Kingdom

January 28, 2017 Leave a comment

Dr. Mike Johnston

Beginning with the Abrahamic Covenant, five Covenants tell the story of Israel. While scant numbers of Bible students have stopped to realize this, fewer have really factored in just what this means. Below is a summary of the five covenants and their relationship to the coming King and Kingdom in Israel.

The Abrahamic Covenant (Gen. 12:1-4; 13:14-17; 15; 17:1-8) – the Kingdom Family is Chosen

“In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates … And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after” (Genesis 15:18; 17:7). [1]

This Covenant is the foundation of all 5 Covenants. In seed form, it provided blessing for the nation Israel from which the Kingdom would come. By divine decree, Abraham received posterity, prosperity, perpetuity, and property which included the title deed to the land of Canaan, future home of the earthly kingdom. The blessing of Israel to the world notwithstanding, Christianity owes everything to this Covenant. The prophets of God, the majority of writers of the inerrant Word (the Bible), and foremost on the list our precious Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ have all come through God’s Covenant with Abraham.

While Israel has violated this Covenant with Abraham many times, it has never been revoked. It played a major prophetic role in Christ’s first coming (Luke 1:72; Acts 3:24-25) and has often served as the basis for God rescuing Israel. “If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me; And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity: Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.” (Leviticus 26:40-42) (see Ezekiel 16:60)

The Mosaic Covenant (Ex. 20:1 – 31:18) – the Kingdom Nation is Assembled and its Laws are Enacted

Kingdom Laws written on tables of stone will during the Kingdom be written in the fleshly tables of the heart.

Abraham believed God which was imputed to him for righteousness. The Law was given through Moses as its mediator for the purpose of governing Israel’s (national) relationship with God. It was mainly made up of (a) the commandments, the express will of God, (b) the judgments, the social and civic life of Israel, (c) and the ordinances. This system ceased when the mystery Body convened and the Temple was destroyed. Once the mystery church is taken in the mystery rapture, Daniel’s seventieth week will begin and this legal system will again be in place and the third temple will be rebuilt to host sacrificial Levitical Judaism (Dan. 9:27; 2 Thess. 2:4).

The Land Covenant (Deut. 30:1-10) – the Kingdom Land is Guaranteed

It is an unconditional guarantee that Israel’s Kingdom will be located in the Covenant land of Israel. This is a great assurance given the aggressive actions by the UN and Islamic nations who are trying to steal Jerusalem from Israel (study Zech. 12-14).

“And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers. And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live. And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee. And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day. And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers” (Deuteronomy 30:5-9).

Israel was driven from Jerusalem in 70 AD by Roman armies destroying the city and the Temple. In the latter days God promises to restore her to the land and the commensurate blessing given Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the original Covenant (see Deut. 4:30-31; Lev. 26:42; Ezek. 16:60; etc). We see this fulfillment in Israel becoming a nation once again on May 14, 1948. Praise the Lord!

The Davidic Covenant  (2 Sam. 7:4-16; 1 Chron. 17:3-15) – the Kingdom and the King’s seed are established in Perpetuity

God promised David in perpetuity that his seed – ultimately the Lord Jesus – would occupy a perpetual throne in Jerusalem.

“(David) He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever. (2 Samuel 7:13-16)

The New Covenant (Jer. 31:31-40) – the Kingdom people in their Kingdom land, with the King on the throne obeyed from Kingdom Laws now written on the heart

It is a New Covenant with Israel in contrast with the old (Mosaic, “which they broke,” Jer. 31:32). Christ Jesus is the Mediator (in His blood) of this New Covenant which was inaugurated at the cross and is described in Scripture as, “enacted on better promises” (Heb. 8:6). The Mediator of this covenant has become, for all mankind, “the source of eternal salvation” (Heb. 5:9) to all who obey Him; as well as the cornerstone and Head of the Church (Eph. 2:20-22; Col. 1:18; Eph. 5:23) which is being built during this dispensation; individuals called out from both Jews and Gentiles alike. Ultimately and literally, this new covenant with its unconditional and eternal blessings will be established with NATIONAL Israel at Christ’s second advent to earth. Now before discussing His second advent, let’s discuss His first.

[1] The strength of this Covenant brought the Lord to Israel’s rescue many times in history: And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

(Exodus 2:24; see Lev. 26:42, 45, etc). Once again, the Covenant is the hope of Israel’s future: I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant (Ezek. 16:60; everlasting covenant is also referred to in Psa. 105:10; Isa. 24:5; 55:3; 61:8; Jer. 32:40; Ezek. 37:26; Heb. 13:20).

Global warming hoax

THE GLOBAL WARMING SCHEME

New Evidence Debunks Manmade Global Warming

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)

Global warming is an elaborately contrived scheme perpetrated by Al Gore and the leaders of the New World Order (NWO) who have banded together to control society through crisis management while enriching themselves along the way. [1]Please take note from the following Wikipedia comments that the bottom line (as in the 2008 election) is change [Dr. Mike’s comments are in brackets]:

Crisis management is the process by which an organization deals with a major event that threatens to harm the organization [in this instance the world], its stakeholders, or the general public. Three elements are common to most definitions of crisis: (a) a threat to the organization [or the world], (b) the element of surprise [we haven’t planned for this], and (c) a short decision time [FEMA control]. Certain politicians and scientists now argue that “crisis is a process of transformation where the old system can no longer be maintained.” Therefore the fourth defining quality is the need for change [conformity to NWO ideals].

In the first chapter of Romans, Paul warns that any society rejecting the Creator will become a society that worships the creation: Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things (Romans 1:22-23). Nowhere is this more evident than with the prevaricators of global warming who claim scientific consensus that the earth is becoming increasingly hotter and man is to blame for it. But is this really the view held by science? No it is not as Philip Stott, Professor of Biogeography, University of London  warns:“The attempts of environmentalists to bolster the myth of human-induced global warming is downright immoral.”

World Net Daily reported the following: A scientist whose reservations about “global warming” have been officially endorsed by tens of thousands of other scientists is accusing the U.N. of using “mob rule” to generate fear-mongering climate change reports intended to scare national leaders into submitting to its worldwide taxation schemes.

“Science has always progressed on the basis of observations, experiments, and thoughts published by individual scientists and sometimes pairs or small groups of scientific coworkers; except at the U.N.” said Art Robinson, a research professor of chemistry and co-founder of the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine, said in a recent column in Human Events.

Robinson’s concern over the political manipulation of science earlier led him to launch the Petition Project, a compilation of more than 31,000 scientists – with more names arriving daily – who have voluntarily signed their names to the following statement:

“There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.”

Here are additional facts globalists were hoping you never read.

New research from one of the world’s most prestigious scientific organizations indicates that cosmic rays and the sun — not manmade carbon emissions — are the major factors influencing global climate.

“The science is now all-but-settled on global warming, convincing new evidence demonstrates, but Al Gore, the IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) and other global warming doomsayers won’t be celebrating,” writes Lawrence Solomon, executive director of Energy Probe, in Canada’s Financial Post.

“The new findings point to cosmic rays and the sun — not human activities — as the dominant controller of climate on Earth.”

The findings, published in the journal Nature, come from CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, one of the world’s largest centers for scientific research involving 60 countries and 8,000 scientists at more than 600 universities and national laboratories, according to Solomon.

CERN — the organization that invented the World Wide Web — built a stainless steel chamber that precisely re-created the Earth’s atmosphere.

“In this chamber, 63 CERN scientists from 17 European and American institutes have done what global warming doomsayers said could never be done — demonstrate that cosmic rays promote the formation of molecules that in Earth’s atmosphere can grow and seed clouds.” And the cloudier it is, the cooler it will be, Solomon notes.

“Because the sun’s magnetic field controls how many cosmic rays reach Earth’s atmosphere (the stronger the sun’s magnetic field, the more it shields Earth from incoming cosmic rays from space), the sun determines the temperature on Earth.”

So when the sun’s magnetic field is strongest, fewer cosmic rays impact the Earth, which in turn leads to decreased cloud formation and warmer temperatures.

The link between cosmic rays and global warming was first proposed by two Danish scientists in 1996, and was immediately denounced by the IPCC.

But CERN scientist Jasper Kirkby, a British experimental physicist, accepted the Danes’ theory. He told the scientific press in 1998 that it “will probably be able to account for somewhere between half and the whole of the increase in the Earth’s temperature that we have seen in the last century.”

It took Kirkby nearly 10 years to convince the CERN bureaucracy to proceed with his plan to create the chamber that replicates the Earth’s atmosphere and has produced the recent results.

But CERN “remains too afraid of offending its government masters to admit its success,” observes Solomon, author of “The Deniers: The World-Renowned Scientists Who Stood Up Against Global Warming Hysteria, Political Persecution, and Fraud.”

CERN told Kirkby and his team to downplay the results by stating “that cosmic radiation is only one of many parameters.”

Solomon concludes: “CERN, and the Danes, have in all likelihood found the path to the Holy Grail of climate science. But the religion of climate science won’t yet permit a celebration of the find.”

[1] Here’s the ponzi portion: First, Gore sets up a company that will invest in other companies that will benefit from global warming alarmism; Second, Gore gets some Hollywood types to fund and produce a movie designed to scare the c-c-carbon out of the population; Third, Gore travels the world promoting this movie, while pushing the view that a cataclysm is imminent if the world doesn’t immediately act; Fourth, an adoring media falls for the con hook, line, and sinker. Rather than debunking the flaws in the theories, the media promote every word of it while advancing the concept that Gore’s views represent those of an overwhelming majority of scientists; Fifth, scared governments and citizens across the globe invest in alternative energy programs driving up the shares of companies Gore’s group has already invested in; Sixth, Gore and his cronies make billions as they laugh all the way to the bank at the stupidity of their fellow citizens

 

Today, tomorrow, and forever – it’s all about the Preeminence of the Lord Jesus!

What we do with Christ in this life determines what He will do with us in the next life!!

Choose wisely, Christ as Saviour and Lord!

And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
(Colossians 1:18)
