War on the Cross

By Michael G. Mickey

In recent days a lot of energy has been put forth by me and the site's regular contributors in an effort to keep everyone up to speed on how quickly - and demonstrably - we are moving toward the complete fulfillment of God's promise that the last days would be as they were in the days of Lot. (Luke 17:28-30) We've also discussed how there is an effort underway to silence Christians and, in doing so, the Word of God itself. As I'm going to demonstrate today, we are on the front lines of a spiritual battle here in the last days that is simply unprecedented, both in its directness of approach and its long-term goal.

The Telegraph is reporting the following in part (emphasis added mine):
The National Federation of Atheist, Humanist and Secular Student Societies (AHS) plans to launch a recruitment drive this summer.

Backed by professors Richard Dawkins and AC Grayling, the initiative aims to establish a network of atheist societies in schools to counter the role of Christianity.

It will coincide with the first atheist summer camp for children that will teach that religious belief and doctrines can prevent ethical and moral behaviour.

The federation aims to encourage students to lobby their schools and local authorities over what is taught in lessons and to call for daily acts of collective worship to be scrapped. It wants the societies to hold talks and educational events to persuade students not to believe in God.

Chloƫ Clifford-Frith, AHS co-founder, said that the societies would act as a direct challenge to the Christian message being taught in schools.

She expressed concern that Christian Unions could influence vulnerable teenagers looking for a club to belong to with fundamentalist doctrine.

In particular, she claimed that some students were being told that homosexuality is a sin and to believe the Biblical account of creation. "We want to point out how silly some of these beliefs are and hope that these groups will help to do that," she said. [More...]
The first thing I would point out to everyone is the most obvious: Atheists like Richard Dawkins are supposedly anti-religion. In spite of this, as the article highlights, the efforts of those espousing militant atheist beliefs like Dawkins conveniently forget all the other gods, especially the god of Islam. That would be because they only fear ONE God that is worshipped by mankind - the God of the Bible. (That and the fact Dawkins and his ilk are scared of the Muslims.)

When I think of how bold atheists like Richard Dawkins are when it comes to waging war on the cross, I have to admit chuckling now and then. They challenge the Most High God openly and boldly, an example in the excerpt above being their claim that believing homosexuality is a sin is silly, but have to be pressed to denounce Islam, for example. Even when their hand is forced into doing so, any opposition expressed will be much more tame than when they rail on Christianity, most often blanketed in a statement of overall dislike of religions such as: "We are opposed to all forms of religion, not just Christianity." Oh really?

Am I the only one who wonders where are all the news articles documenting their efforts to form atheistic organizations seeking to "counter the role" of Islam are? You'd think the atheists, in mankind's best interest of course, would be concerned about countering that religion too, especially in light of September 11th, the Madrid train bombings, Muslim Iran seeking nuclear weapons after its leader has openly threatened to wipe an entire nation off the face of the earth, namely Israel, but none of that seems as worthy of their attention as silencing Christianity. And to think these people boast of how intellectually superior they are to Christians! Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. (Romans 1:22)

Only the Gospel of Jesus Christ scares - and threatens - atheists where religion is concerned, mostly because only Christ and His judgment of them to come is seared into their consciences. This the atheists loathe, to the point that they foolishly hope that, if they can create a world where Jesus Christ isn't even mentioned, they can feel safe for a time. Who knows? Somewhere in the recesses of their spiritually tormented souls they may hope, literally, that if enough people stop believing in God, He will cease to exist or maybe change His mind about holding them accountable for their sins. Good luck with that, atheists!

And did you catch the part of the article above where the atheists made the bizarre claim that religion, by which I'm assuming they're referring to Christianity in keeping with the article's theme, may "prevent ethical and moral behavior?" That's a laugher for the ages, isn't it? Or did they not hear that thou shalt not lie, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not kill, etc.?

Stop Kidding Yourself

If you're reading this commentary and you're an atheist, hear me now. Waging war on the cross and Jesus Christ is utter foolishness. And if you're railing on Christianity while ducking radical Islam because you're afraid of Muslims, you're acting doubly foolish! Let me be blunt. If you're an atheist and you are afraid of men but not the judgment of Jesus Christ? You're bordering on insanity, especially when both you and I know - yes KNOW - that nothing you are doing or saying against Christianity is making you any less concerned about the prospect of the God of the Bible's judgment of you to come! This you should actually be thankful for because it is hope - your only hope!

Jesus Christ said:
"And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him." (Luke 12:4-5)
Anyone, regardless of their religious faith or even lack thereof, can kill your body, but there is only One who can both take your life here on earth from you and, later, cast your sin-riddled body into an eternal lake of fire from which there will be no escape or hope of rescue from!

Choose Jesus Christ today I beg you. He loves you!

Be Of Good Cheer

Lastly, Christians, be of good cheer! While there is much going on in the world around us of concern, the content above being a prime example, things wouldn't be nearly this bad if we weren't rapidly approaching something good happening that we've been promised - our redemption!

Church, the darkness seems to be pressing in on us more and more daily, but remember: There's a light at the end of this tunnel for us!

Keep your watch! The Bridegroom is coming!
