of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a
tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together:
the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle. They come
from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD,
and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.
- Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction
from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every
man's heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows
shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that
travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces
shall be as flames.
- Behold, the day of the
LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to
lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners
thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations
thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened
in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to
shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked
for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud
to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of

- MORE GREETINGS to all and the newcomers to this list. We'd
like to introduce ourselves. George and Rita Williams founded
this ministry. We were Mormons (Temple Mormons) for 20 years.
We prayed to God in 1992 to allow us to do a ministry speaking
out against Scientology. Six months later God led us to the truth:
out of the cult of Mormonism. We did not know at the time we
were in a cult. No-one had witnessed to us in 20 years.
- The Holy Spirit brought us to information about all the cults
and the present development of the New World Order. We began
bringing our research to you. Because all the research was already
done, we decided to build a library within Cephas Ministry. Our
newsletters are not designed to provoke
anger which is strictly prohibited in Scripture. It is to shed
light on activities by those who would deceive those who are
recorded in the Book of Life by devious methods and systematic
- We are Bible students and have left all worldly organizations.
We attend church if the message is from the authorized KJV Bible.
The focus of these newsletters is to prove why we had to leave
the world system. We are called 'Watchmen on the Wall' which
God always had during the Old / New Testament Times.
- To understand what is happening, one has to know the Bible
to compare notes.
- The first section is about the church.
The news about churches is unedited unless indicated by Ednotes.
The church as we knew it, is undergoing disintegration. This
began on a fast track in the early nineteen sixties when the
Catholic Church produced liberal Vatican II to replace Vatican
- The trend since then has been ecumenical which is truly what
the word 'Catholicism' means: a universal religion all
inclusive and multicultural. The Bible calls for a final church
and today's church doesn't resemble what Jesus taught. The Word
of God has undergone many changes to fit the progressive modes.
Many new Bible tranlations have brought confusion. The Bible
calls for a falling away from churches and becoming
atheistic before Jesus comes back for His Bride. The true believers
are called 'Ekklesia.' Our newsletters prove this fact and prove
that the Bible is true from beginning to end.
- The second section is about globalism
where we bring your attention to the social, political and global
trend, the so called democratizing what is left of the world.
This is a deception since the underlying new world global government
is developed by implementing sustainable development (Agenda
21). The Bible prophesies that there will be ten kings (ten
horns), each king (horn) will receive a region of the world as
a reward for work well done for the Antichrist. This is the reason
for the present development of NAU (The North American Union)
as well as the war in the Middle East. It again proves that we
are moving to closure of the times of the Gentiles prophesied
in the Bible. The end result will not be Democracy but a form
of Fascist Communism (Public/Private Corporations enslaving mankind).
- The third section compliments End Time
teachings because Israel is the time piece of the Biblical Prophecy.
1948 was the beginning of the figtree representing Israel, coming
back to life. Israel was allowed to return to its land. Israel
is the rock upon which the world stumbles and crumbles. We watch
and visit Israel for signs which point to the Tribulation to
confirm that we are moving into that space of time.

cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the
armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not
in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness,
not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,

- LORD, PROP ME UP ON MY LEANIN SIDE
- The following is from Heads Up! September 2012: Every
time I am asked to pray, I think of the old fellow who always
prayed, Lord, prop us up on our leaning side. After
hearing him pray that prayer many times, someone asked him why
he prayed that prayer so fervently. He answered, Well sir,
you see, it's like this: I got an old barn out back. It's been
there a long time; it's withstood a lot of weather; it's gone
through a lot of storms, and it's stood for many years. It's
still standing. But one day I noticed it was leaning to one side
a bit. So I went and got some pine poles and propped it up on
its leaning side so it wouldn't fall. Then I got to thinking
about that and how much I was like that old barn. I've been around
a long time. I've withstood a lot of life's storms. I've withstood
a lot of bad weather in life, I've withstood a lot of hard times,
and I'm still standing too. But I find myself leaning to one
side from time to time, so I like to ask the Lord to prop us
up on our leaning side, 'cause I figure a lot of us get to leaning
at times. Sometimes we get to leaning toward anger, leaning toward
bitterness, leaning toward hatred, leaning toward cussing, leaning
toward a lot of things that we shouldn't. So we need to pray,
Lord, prop us up on our leaning side so we will stand
straight and tall again, to glorify the Lord.
- EYE HATH NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD
- David Cloud: 1 Corinthians 2:9 -- But as it is written,
Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the
heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that
love him. This passage is often misapplied to mean that
we dont yet see everything that God has for us in the future,
that we only have a glimpse of heaven, etc. This is true, of
course, but this is not what Paul is talking about in this passage.
The context is divine revelation that has been given through
the apostles and prophets. See 1 Corinthians 2:6-10. Thus, in
verse 9 Paul is not referring to what we dont know; he
is referring to what we do know through Gods Word, and
this knowledge has not come by natural means (by the seeing of
the eye or the hearing of the ear or the natural thinking of
mans heart), it has come by the revelation of the Spirit

- DOOM AND GLOOM: OLYMPIC WINS TRUMP CRITICS
Miami Herald Monday Aug. 13, 2012 . The London 2012 Olympic Games
closed Sunday. PAISLEY DODDS - LONDON (AP) For skeptics,
the Olympics were deliciously doomed: London's transport network
would surely fail, Britain's athletes would flop, rain would
prevail and terrorists would strike. But then the sun came out
after months of sodden skies, vehicles moved briskly, there were
no attacks and British athletes reeled in a shocking 65 medals.
On Monday, as international athletes and visitors poured out
of London and the city's 8 million residents resumed their normal
lives, British officials hailed the 2012 Olympics as an unqualified
success. Even the naysayers predicting doom and gloom had to
eat their words. "I was moaning like everyone else before
the games, thinking the roads would be packed and nothing would
work," said London shopkeeper Yvette Tracton, 28. "But
it's been brilliant."
- Some 116,000 people were leaving Monday from Heathrow airport,
London's busiest hub, compared with 95,000 for a typical August
day. Gatwick Airport was handling 70,000 departing passengers,
15 percent more than usual. Airports had come under scrutiny
in the months leading up to the Olympics for lacking the staff
to deal with backlogs of people and luggage, but Monday's crowds
moved through without a hitch. The exodus included thousands
of athletes and Prime Minister David Cameron, who was heading
on vacation to the Mediterranean. Heathrow built a temporary
Olympics terminal with 31 check-in desks to accommodate departing
athletes and support staff. The terminal was decorated like a
park, and some staff wore bearskin hats in the style of Buckingham
Palace guards. "I have to say to Britain, you guys did a
great job," said passenger Tumua Anae, a 23-year-old Californian
who won gold as part of the U.S. water polo team.
- London's quirky mayor, Boris Johnson, gloated to reporters,
saying London had defied the skeptics. Some 300,000 foreigners
and 5.5 million day-trippers flocked to the city for the games.
Hotel occupancy was at 84 percent double what Beijing
and Sydney saw during their Olympics. Johnson said the city's
public transport had coped just fine. Use of London's subway
the Tube was up 30 percent but saw few major problems.
London's overground commuter train saw double the normal crowds,
and the city's bike hire scheme broke a record with 46,000 bikes
rented on a single day. Continued: http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/08/13/2949339/back-to-reality-britain-bounces.html

BAPTIST FEMALE PASTORS
- Friday Church News Notes, August 31, 2012 David Cloud - It
was reported recently that there are at least 635 pastors and
co-pastors in Baptist churches in America (Baptist Women
Pastors Reach Milestone, Associated Baptist Press, Aug.
17, 2012). There are 485 women pastors in the American Baptist
Church and 150 in the Alliance of Baptists, the Baptist General
Convention of Texas, the Baptist General Association of Virginia,
and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. While the Southern Baptist
Convention has an official statement against female pastors,
there are large numbers of SBC churches that allow women to teach
adult Sunday School classes and otherwise openly disobey 1 Timothy
2:12 -- But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp
authority over the man, but to be in silence. It is just
as unscriptural for a woman to teach a class of men as it is
for a woman to be a senior pastor. The late W.A. Criswell was
one of the conservatives in the Convention, but his wife, Dorothy,
taught a mixed Sunday Class for many years composed of men and
women at First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas. Some of those
who sat under her teaching were students and trustees of Southwestern
Baptist Theological Seminary (Pastors letter challenges
seminarys proposed stance, Baptist Press, Oct 17,
2006). Paige Pattersons wife, another Dorothy, was the
principal speaker at the Sunday morning worship service at Concord
Missionary Baptist Church in Dallas (Baptist Press, Oct 17, 2006).
Billy Grahams daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, who preaches
to mixed crowds of men and women, is a member of a Southern Baptist
congregation. Texas Southern Baptists featured Lotzs stirring
preaching at their Evangelism Conference in 1996 and she
was again featured as a preacher at a Sunday morning worship
service June 15, 2003, sponsored by the Conference of Southern
Baptist Evangelists (Ohio Baptist Messenger, July 2003). If is
acceptable for women to teach the Bible to men, why is it not
acceptable for them to take positions of authority over men?

VATICAN WIN: JUDGE SAYS PRIESTS AREN'T EMPLOYEES
By NIGEL DUARA - Associated Press / August 20, 2012 - PORTLAND,
Ore. (AP) The Vatican won a major victory Monday in an
Oregon federal courtroom, where a judge ruled that the Holy See
is not the employer of molester priests. The decision by U.S.
District Court Judge Michael Mosman ends a six-year question
in the decade-old case and could shield the Vatican from possible
monetary damages. The original lawsuit was filed in 2002 by a
Seattle-area man who said the Rev. Andrew Ronan repeatedly molested
him in the late 1960s. The plaintiff tried to show that Ronan
and all priests are employees of the Vatican, which is therefore
liable for their actions.
- Mosman made a previous decision strictly on legal theory
and determined that, if all the factual assertions made by the
plaintiffs lawyers in the case were true and applicable,
then the Vatican would indeed employ Ronan. But on Monday, Mosman
said he looked at the facts in the case and didnt find
an employer-employee relationship.
- There are no facts to create a true employment
relationship between Ronan and the Holy See, Mosman
said in his ruling from the bench. Jeff Anderson, attorney for
the plaintiff, said he will appeal the decision. Continued:

By Rainer Buergin on August 27, 2012 - Bloomberg Businessweek
- Germany and France agreed to drive ahead measures on closer
European integration in a renewed show of unity by the regions
two biggest economies to fix the crisis in the euro zone. German
Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, speaking after talks in
Berlin today with his French counterpart, Pierre Moscovici, said
the two countries will create a working group to advance European
Union cooperation on banking union, fiscal union and the strengthening
of monetary union.
- Were having to deal with a phase of weakening
growth in the global economy but also in Europe, Schaeuble
told reporters. We want to take joint decisions to
counter that. French President Francois Hollande said later in
Paris that Franco-German ties are key to Europes reorientation.
The common French-German action signals a turnaround in relations
after Hollande led a revolt at a June summit against Chancellor
Angela Merkels austerity-first doctrine for combating the
financial crisis. It builds on a visit to Berlin by Hollande
last week when he and Merkel agreed to stand behind the Greek
government as it strives to overhaul its economy.

PM EDT - Here's a look at protests and reaction across the Middle
East and elsewhere Monday over an anti-Islam film produced in
the U.S. ridiculing the Prophet Muhammad.
- Hundreds of protesters demonstrating against the film torched
a press club and a government building in the northwestern town
of Wari, setting of clashes with police that killed one demonstrator
and wounded several others.
- Hundreds also clashed with police for a second day in the
southern city of Karachi as they tried to reach the U.S. Consulate
there. Police lobbed tear gas and fired in the air to disperse
the protesters who were from the student wing of the Jamaat-e-Islami
party. Police arrested 40 students, but no injuries were reported.
- Demonstrations turned violent outside a U.S. military base
in Kabul, where about 800 protesters burned cars and threw rocks
at Camp Phoenix. Many in the crowd shouted "Death to America!"
and "Death to those people who have made a film and insulted
- Police fired into the air to hold back the crowd and to prevent
it from pushing toward government buildings downtown. More than
20 police officers were slightly injured, most of them hit by
- Protests also broke out along the main thoroughfare into
Kabul, where demonstrators burned shipping containers and tires.
The crowd torched at least one police vehicle before finally
- In an appeal that could stoke more fury, the leader of the
powerful militant group Hezbollah called for sustained protests
in a rare appearance at a rally in Beirut.
- Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah does not usually appear in public
for fear of assassination. "This is the start of a serious
movement that must continue all over the Muslim world in defense
of the prophet of God," he said to roars of support.
- Hezbollah's rallies seemed aimed at keeping the issue alive
by bringing out large crowds. But the group also appeared to
be trying to ensure it did not spiral into violence. Notably,
Hezbollah held Monday's protest in its own mainly Shiite stronghold
of Dahieh in south Beirut, far from the U.S. Embassy.
- A hardline Muslim leader blamed for encouraging last week's
violent protests outside the U.S. Embassy in Tunisia fled through
a police cordon around one of the capital's main mosques, where
he had been holed up with his followers.
- Hundreds of security forces had surrounded El Fateh mosque
in Tunis, where Seif-Allah Ben Hassine had earlier denounced
the Tunisian government and police for Friday's violence, claiming
it was meant to be a peaceful demonstration.
- Friday's protest degenerated into violence and looting, with
cars burned in the embassy parking lot and classrooms at a nearby
American school trashed and looted. A U.S. flag was torn down
and replaced with a black banner.
- Hundreds clashed with police outside the U.S. Embassy in
Jakarta, hurling rocks and firebombs and setting tires alight.
It was the first violence seen in the world's most populous Muslim
country since international outrage over the film exploded last
week. Eleven policemen were rushed to the hospital after being
pelted with rocks and attacked with bamboo sticks, while four
protesters were arrested and one was hospitalized.
- Demonstrators burned a picture of President Barack Obama
and tried to ignite a fire truck parked outside the embassy after
ripping a water hose off the vehicle and torching it, sending
black smoke billowing into the sky. Police used water cannons
and tear gas to try to disperse the crowd as the protesters shouted
"Allahu Akbar," or God is great, and burned a U.S.
flag. Demonstrations were also held in the cities of Medan and
- Iran's top leader urged the West to show it respects Muslims
by blocking the film. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Western leaders
must prove they are not "accomplices" in a "big
crime." Khamenei was quoted on state TV as noting that some
nations place restrictions on expression, such as banning Nazi-related
- An al-Qaida-linked Egyptian jihadist, Ahmed Ashoush, issued
a religious edict, or fatwa, saying it is justified to kill anyone
who took part in the making of the prophet film.
- Ashoush, who was believed close to Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida's
current No. 1, Ayman al-Zawahri, heads the relatively obscure

- A Muslim youth pauses near a poster during a protest against
an anti-Islam film in Jakarta, Indonesia, Monday, Sept. 17, 2012.
Indonesians enraged over an anti-Islam film hurled rocks and
Molotov cocktails at the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta on Monday, marking
the first violence in the world's most populous Muslim country
since outrage exploded last week in the Middle East and beyond.
GILLIAN FLACCUS - From Associated Press - September 18, 2012
5:16 AM EDT
CERRITOS, Calif. (AP) While the man behind an anti-Islam
movie that ignited violence across the Middle East would likely
face swift punishment in his native Egypt for making the film,
in America the government is in the thorny position of protecting
his free speech rights and looking out for his safety even while
condemning his message.
- It's a paradox that makes little sense to those protesting
and calling for blood. To them, the movie dialogue denigrating
the Prophet Muhammad is all the evidence needed to pursue justice
vigilante or otherwise against Nakoula Bassely
Nakoula, an American citizen originally from Egypt.
- In America, there's nothing illegal about making a movie
that disparages a religious figure. And that has the Obama administration
walking a diplomatic tight rope less than two months before the
election how to express outrage over the movie's treatment
of Islam without compromising the most basic American freedom.
- "The thing that makes this particularly difficult for
the United States is that ... we treat what most of us would
refer to as hate speech as constitutionally protected speech
and Americans don't appreciate, I think, how unusual this position
seems in the rest of the world," said Lawrence Rosenthal,
a professor at Chapman University's School of Law in Orange,
- The situation also raises vexing questions about how far
the government can and should go to protect someone who exercises
their First Amendment right. In the past, for example, police
have stood guard to ensure Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan could march
without being attacked for their views.
- But Nakoula's case invites scrutiny because the free speech
he exercised with the film "Innocence of Muslims" has
had such far-reaching and violent implications. Continued: http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/
- TERRY JONES PART OF ISRAEL PLAN TO INSTALL ROMNEY, ATTACK
- Fury over a US-made anti-Islam film has spread across the
Muslim world, with protesters marching on US embassies and torching
- Demonstrators in Iran, Sudan, Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia and many
other Muslim states came out after weekly Friday prayers to value
their faith, condemning the blasphemous movie produced in the
United States and insulting to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
- Press TV has conducted an interview with Gordon Duff, a senior
editor of Veterans Today, from Ohio, to further discuss the issue.
The following is a rough transcription of the interview.
- Press TV: Mr. Duff, first of all, with regards to this
recent anti-Islam film which insults Prophet Mohammad (PBUH),
theres a man somehow related to this film, of course, in
his promotion, Mr. Terry Jones. You have extensively researched
and studied the background of this man. Tell us how he is a CIA
agent and, of course, how he contributes to US interests both
in and outside the US?
- Duff: Terry Jones was initially recruited by the CIA in
the late 1970s. He was sent to work in Germany in the 1980s under
what NATO called Operation Gladio where he ran a
church in northern Germany and used that as a cover for recruiting
terrorist groups that were to stay behind in case of a Soviet
- Since that time, he has been heavily supported by a number
of powerful financial interests, some tied to Israel, the Koch
- Certainly, the CIA has now splintered so we really have
more than one CIA in the US, one closely allied with Jones and
with Netanyahu, which is where we put the blame.
- But the US backers for this film, we have tracked him
down. The film itself was never made in its entirety. Only the
13 minutes was made. There is no film. The stories about an entire
film are fabrications.
- The actual distribution is tied to Google Corporation
and YouTube which has had 46,000 inappropriate complaints; and
it only takes three to take down a film -- theyve refused;
but also to a group called Pajama Media, tied to the Tea Party;
again, the Koch brothers and very oddly enough with direct ties
to the Cato Institute, a top Washington think tank that has been
directly involved in this project. Its a real surprise
for us to see them because they have typically been very respected.
- Press TV: This man, Terry Jones, he burned pages of the
Holy Quran. He designated 9/11 as the international Quran
- At the same time, on this 9/11 anniversary, we have this
anti-Islam film out. First of all, what do you make of all this
and how do you relate it to the fact that the US is clutching
its straws to keep the 9/11 momentum going?
- Duff: We have two issues here, really. Nine eleven in
the US has become to a large extent that issue. Any American
with reasonable education has begun to look on 9/11 as highly
- Nations like Australia, 78 percent of the people in Australia
in a poll believe that 9/11 was an inside job.

this papal visit is so important and why its timing is so crucial.

- BLACK CLOUDS AND BLACK FLAGS OVER OBAMA
Exclusive: Joel Richardson explains Islamic symbol appearing
amid global riots
Published: 2 days ago - today September 18, 2012 - The late Osama
bin Laden in front of the black flag of Islam
It was in 2004, when American businessman Nicholas Bergs
brutal execution by beheading was widely shown all over the Internet,
that most Americans caught their first glimpse of the black flag
of Islam. Hung on the wall behind Berg and his murderous executioners
was a black banner with Arabic writing in white. Since the murder
of Nicholas Berg, in numerous al-Qaida videos posted online,
the same black flag has been observed hanging prominently behind
the speaker. And now the same black flag is proudly flying high
over the U.S. Embassy in Tunisia and is waving across the world.
Welcome to Obamas so-called Arab Spring.
- Get Joel Richardsons newest blockbuster book: Mideast
Beast: The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist
- Over the past few days, the black flag has been observed
amidst the protests and riots in Egypt, Libya, Sudan, Nigeria,
Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Kuwait, Bahrain, Iran, Pakistan,
Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Indonesia, India, Turkey, Jerusalem,
Gaza and even Germany, Australia and England. Across the world,
Muslims of every race, tribe and nation are marching under the
same black banner.
- Protesters burn the U.S. flag under the black banner of Islam
in London (Photo: YouTube) While many commentators have been
referring to this banner as the flag of al-Qaida, this does not
convey its full meaning and history. What exactly what does the
black flag of Islam truly symbolize? According to Islamic history
and tradition, during the career of Muhammad, the prophet
and founder of Islam, his forces carried a large black banner
known as ar-Raya into battle. The first black banner was said
to be made from a large piece of cloth once wrapped around the
head of his child-bride, Aisha. When Muhammad and his men attacked
a convoy, or village, it was this black flag that would herald
their approach and lead them into battle.... The restoration
of the Caliphate, a goal shared by jihadist groups such as al-Qaida,
as well as moderate activist groups such as Hizbut Tahrir is
a vision to unify the entire Islamic world into one Islamic superstate,
called the Caliphate, led by a single leader, known as the Caliph.
The Caliph is the pope, president and general of the Islamic
world, bringing the religious, governmental and military offices
all under one head. At virtually every Hizbut Tahrir rally, it
is the black flag that will be the most prominent symbol on display....
Another version of the prophecy as recorded
by Tirmidhi, has the armies marching from the east and placing
their flags on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, as the seat of
the coming unified Islamic superstate under the Mahdi/Caliph:
- Armies carrying black flags will
come from Khurasan. No power will be able to stop them and they
will finally reach Eela, (Baitul Maqdas, The Holy House
in Jerusalem) where they will erect their flags.
- Christian theologians have highlighted
the similarity between the Islamic vision of their Mahdi with
the warnings of Jesus and Paul who saw the biblical Antichrist
setting himself up on the Temple Mount as the demonic claimant
to world leadership:
- So when you see standing in the holy place
the abomination that causes desolation, spoken of
through the prophet Daniel let the reader understand
then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

Freedom Congress on free speech last Tuesday, Sept. 11, our embassies
were being viciously attacked in the jihadists war on free

the tweet, the Obama administrations apology for religious

crystallizes the battle set before us.

US IMAM: DISREGARD FIRST AMENDMENT' REPLACE WITH
September 21, 2012 by Tim Brown - A New Jersey Imam has come
out in support of disregarding the U.S. Constitution in favor
of instituting Sharia law. Mohammad Qatanani, an Imam of one
of the largest New Jersey mosques, said that anyone that criticize
Islam was a direct threat on our national security. He believes
this so strongly that he thinks anyone that speaks ill of Muhammad
should be investigated by the Department of Homeland Security.
- The Blaze reported on an interview with Qatanani:
- We, as Americans, have to put limits and borders
[on] freedom of speech, Qatanani, leader of the Islamic
Center of Passaic County (ICPC), told TheBlaze. He explained
that while Americans may have the freedom to speak
their mind, ultimately, they have no right to [talk about
Muslim] holy issues as it will incite hatred or war
- Qatanani said he thinks agitators who slander Islam, or,
more specifically, the Prophet Muhammad, incite violence and
hence, pose a national security risk that threatens the safety
of Americans at home and abroad. Thus, America should disregard
its First Amendment as it is typically applied and instead act
in accordance with sharia law for the ultimate good
- They [Muslims] think our [American] freedoms are
too much, Qatanani said. The freedom of the American
people is so different from their [Muslims'] freedoms. We believe
freedoms have limits and rules, otherwise we will get people

- EVANGELICALS TURNING TO CATHOLIC SPIRITUALITY
- Updated and enlarged July 30, 2008 (first published January
4, 2001) David Cloud - wayoflife.org
- Everywhere we look evangelicals are turning to Roman Catholic
styles of contemplative spirituality (which in many cases were
borrowed from pagan sources), such as ritualistic rote prayers,
chanting, meditation, mindless centering prayer, the use of prayer
beads, the Stations of the Cross, lectio divina, labyrinths,
and the daily office.
- The cover story for the February 2008 issue of Christianity
Today was The Future Lies in the Past, and it describes
the lost secrets of the ancient church that are being
rediscovered by evangelicals. The ancient church in question
happens to be the Roman Catholic, beginning with the so-called
church fathers of the early centuries.
- The article observes that many young evangelicals dislike
both traditional Christianity and the seeker
sensitive churches. Traditional Christianity is described as
too focused on being right, too much into Bible
studies and apologetics materials. Instead,
the young evangelicals are lusting after a renewed encounter
with a God that goes beyond doctrinal definitions.
This, of course, is a perfect definition of mysticism. It refers
to experiencing God beyond the boundaries of Scripture.
- Christianity Today recommends that evangelicals stop
debating and just embody Christianity. Toward
this end they should embrace symbols and sacraments
and dialogue with Catholicism and Orthodoxy; they
should break out the candles and incense and pray
the lectio divina and learn the Catholic ascetic
disciplines from practicing monks and nuns.
THE EMERGING CHURCH IS A MAGNET FOR THOSE WHO HAVE REJECTED THE
"OLD FASHIONED" NEW TESTAMENT FAITH
- The emerging church is a magnet for those who have rejected
the old-fashioned New Testament faith and who despise
traditional Bible-believing churches, dogmatic biblical preaching,
and biblical judgmentalism in regard to lifestyle
- Many of the books I have read by emerging leaders make this
- For example, in Blue Like Jazz Donald Miller tells how that
he refused to be restricted by the teaching of traditional-type
churches. He wanted to drink beer and watch raunchy movies and
talk trashy and run around with atheists and other rebels. In
discussing his involvement in church in his youth he says, I
wished I could have subscribed to aspects of Christianity but
not the whole thing (p. 30). He complains, In order
to believe Christianity, you either had to reduce enormous theological
absurdities [i.e., Garden of Eden, universal flood] into childrens
stories or ignore them (p. 31). He wanted to believe the
gospel free from the clasp of fairy tale (p. 35).
In other words, he wanted to pick and choose what parts of the
Bible he would believe. He despised dogmatic Bible preaching
and hated it when preachers said we had to follow Jesus
because sometimes they would make Him sound angry
- In fact, Jesus was angry sometimes even in His incarnation
(he looked round about on them with anger, being grieved
for the hardness of their hearts, Mark 3:5), and He will
be very angry in the future when the wrath of the Lamb is poured
out upon mankind as described in the book of Revelation and many
other places in Scripture! Continued:

victim of alleged abuse at a 17,000-member Tulsa megachurch has
come forward, and police said Tuesday that there might be a fifth.
At the same time, members of Victory Christian Center are beginning
to speak publicly about the allegations that have shaken the
worldwide ministry's foundations and tarnished the reputations
of its pastor and her family members. Prosecutors added two additional
charges Monday against 20-year-old Chris Denman, a former church
employee. He was arrested Sept. 5 on a complaint alleging that
he raped a 13-year-old girl in a stairwell on the ministry's
campus in August and molested a 15-year-old girl. He faces new
charges of making a lewd proposal to a child and using a computer
to commit a sex crime involving a 12-year-old girl.
- Another ex-church employee, 23-year-old Israel Castillo,
was arrested last week and is charged with making a lewd proposal
to a 15-year-old girl and using a computer to commit a sex crime.
Tulsa Police Det. Cpl. Greg Smith told The Associated Press in
an interview Tuesday that a third suspect could face charges
related to alleged sexual abuse of a fifth victim. Two things
are complicating that case, Smith said, because the victim's
parents are uncooperative and the suspect is no longer in Tulsa.
"We're at a stalemate," Smith said. "The third
suspect we haven't talked about because all we have to go on
now is secondhand information." On Wednesday, five employees
of the south Tulsa church including the son and daughter-in-law
of head pastor Sharon Daugherty are scheduled to be arraigned
in district court for allegedly waiting two weeks before reporting
the rape of the 13-year-old by Denman to authorities. John Daugherty,
Charica Daugherty, Paul Willemstein, Anna George and Harold "Frank"
Sullivan each face one misdemeanor count of failing to report

The United Nations, at the behest of the Organization of Islamic
Cooperation (OIC), will debate, once again, the merit of blasphemy
laws that could potentially criminalize religious defamation.
We are living through a period of unease," UN Secretary-General
Ban Ki-moon said last week. "We are also seeing incidents
of intolerance and hatred that are then exploited by others.
Voices of moderation and calm need to make themselves heard at
this time. We all need to speak up in favor of mutual respect
and understanding of the values and beliefs of others.
- Rev. Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite, a senior fellow at the
Center for American Progress, points out in the Washington Post
that "since 1999, the 56-nation Organization of Islamic
Cooperation (OIC) has sought to include the issue of religious
defamation in UN Human Rights Council resolutions."
- Typically the West and human rights organizations have objected
such laws on grounds that they would limit free speech. But this
year, after an anti-Islam YouTube video sparked deadly riots
throughout the world, the global mood is decidedly altered from
previous years. Continued: http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/politics/120925/

by John Nolte 26 Sep 2012, 7:34 AM - As recently as yesterday,
President Obama stood before the world at the United Nations
and blamed "The Innocence of Muslims" for the unrest
in the Middle East and, more specifically, the death of four
Americans in Libya, including Christopher Stevens, our Libyan
Ambassador. Obama refuses to acknowledge the assassination of
Stevens was a terrorist attack, even though other members of
his Administration, including his own Secretary of State, have
already conceded it was exactly that.
In fact, every bit of intel also contradicts the President.
- And now, Libyan President Mohamed Magarief is on the record
declaratively stating the video had absolutely nothing to do
with the attacks:
- Libyan President Mohamed Magarief said the deadly Sept. 11
attack in Benghazi, which also resulted in the deaths of three
other Americans, was more likely pegged to the anniversary of
the 9/11 attacks.
- "Reaction should have been, if it was genuine, should
have been six months earlier. So it was postponed until the 11th
of September," Magarief told NBCs Ann Curry in the

- PRESIDENT OBAMA DECLARES THE FUTURE MUST NOT BELONG TO PRACTICING
- By: Erick Erickson (Diary) | September 25th, 2012 at 11:20
AM | 154
- In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly today
the President of the United States declared that the future does
not belong to practicing Christians. Already, the media and the
left are in full denial, probably based on their general lack
of understanding of theology. This would have been a gaffe had
Mitt Romney said it. But with Barack Obama, hes just speaking
bold truths. His bold truth declares that the future does not
belong to practicing Christians.
- Pay careful attention to what he says.
- The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet
of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander
must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ
is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied.
Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims.
It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: Intolerance is
itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a
true democratic spirit. Together, we must work towards
a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not
defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the
vision we will support.
- Now, thats the full paragraph so no one can claim I
took him out of context.
- But consider this. It is an orthodox Christian belief that
Mohammed is not a prophet. Actual Christians, as opposed to many
of the supposed Christians put up by the mainstream media, believe
that Christ is the only way to salvation. Believing that is slandering
Mohammed. Thats just a fact. If you dont believe
me, you go into the MIddle East and proclaim Christ is the way,
the truth, and the life and see what happens to your life.Continued:
- 'JESUS NOT ALLOWED" ANTI-FAITH SENTIMENT SWEEPS US
- By Paul Strand - CBN News Washington Sr. Correspondent -
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 Could you imagine going to jail for
your faith? A recent report warns that it could happen.
CBN News investigated the growing wave of hostility to Christianity
in America that's led to hundreds of court cases.
- No Religion Allowed Angela Hildenbrand faced the very real
possibility of going to jail for her faith. The trouble began
when a federal judge ruled that no one at her Texas high school
could pray or even use words like "prayer" or "amen"
during the 2011 graduation ceremonies. As class valedictorian,
Hildenbrand felt God deserved the praise, even if it meant jail
"I was definitely preparing myself to have to make that
sort of tough decision and mentally prepare myself for what well
could be coming next," she told CBN News. Hildenbrand's
case is just one of more than 640 cases of religious hostility
cited in a new report by the Liberty Institute. General Counsel
Jeff Mateer, who takes on many of these cases, helped put the
survey together. "The atheists and the secularists are well-organized
and they're well-funded," the Liberty Institute attorney
told CBN News. Continued: http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2012/September/Jesus-Not-Allowed-Anti-Faith-
- GERMAN CATHOLICS WILL BE DENIED HOLY COMMUNION OR A RELIGIOUS
BURIAL IF THEY REFUSE TO CHURCH TAX 8% OF INCOME
Allan Hall - Daily Mail., UK - Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:00 CDT Corbis
Worshipers in Germany will be no longer considered Catholic if
they do not pay the special church tax.Germany's Catholic Church
will deny worshipers the right to Holy Communion and religious
burials if people do not pay a special church tax. A newly-enforced
German bishops' decree says anyone failing to pay the tax - an
extra 8% of their income tax bill - will no longer be considered
a Catholic. All people in Germany must pay this tax if they want
to worship in either Catholic or protestant churches, or Jewish
synagogues. Last year millions of files spanning decades were
handed over to criminal investigators by all 27 dioceses of the
Catholic Church hierarchy in Germany in a bid to get to the heart
of child sex abuse by priests. Continued: http://www.sott.net/articles/show/251690-German-Catholics-Will-Be-Denied-Holy-Communion-
- NO TAX, NO BLESSING GERMAN CHURCH INSISTS ON LEVY
By JUERGEN BAETZ The Associated Press
Friday, September 28, 2012 12:22 PM EDT
BERLIN (AP) The road to heaven is paved with more than
good intentions for Germany's 24 million Catholics. If they don't
pay their religious taxes, they will be denied sacraments, including
weddings, baptisms and funerals.
- A decree issued last week by the country's bishops cast a
spotlight on the longstanding practice in Germany and a handful
of other European countries in which governments tax registered
believers and then hand over the money to the religious institutions.
In Germany, the surcharge for Catholics, Protestants and Jews
is a surcharge of up to nine percent on their income tax bills
or about (EURO)56 ($72) a month for a single person earning
a pre-tax monthly salary of about (EURO)3,500 ($4,500). For religious
institutions, struggling to maintain their congregations in a
secular society where the Protestant Reformation began 500 years
ago, the tax revenues are vital.
- The Catholic Church in Germany receives about (EURO)5 billion
($6.5 billion) annually from the surcharge. For Protestants,
the total is just above (EURO)4 billion ($5.2 billion). Donations,
in turn, represent a far smaller share of the churches' income
than in the United States. Continued: http://www.mycenturylink.com/news/read.php?

program, arguing that Iran has a right to develop clean energy
and stressing that US animosity against the Iranian
government and its nuclear program is due to Americas desire
for the Middle Easts energy resources, the Iranian government
claimed on their webpage.

approach regarding their opposition to the atomic bombs and said
if they are true with their claims why they do not destroy their
own nuclear bombs first, the Iranian government wrote of

Editorial in Holy See's official newspaper declares it to be
a 'clumsy forgery'
- A historian of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School
has identified a papyrus fragment in Coptic that she says contains
the first known statement saying explicitly that Jesus was married.
The fragment also refers to a female disciple.By Naomi O'Leary

An ancient papyrus fragment which a Harvard scholar says contains
the first recorded mention that Jesus may have had a wife is
a fake, the Vatican said Friday. "Substantial reasons would
lead one to conclude that the papyrus is indeed a clumsy forgery,"
the Vatican's newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, said in an editorial
by its editor, Gian Maria Vian. "In any case, it's a fake."..Joining
a highly charged academic debate over the authenticity of the
text, written in ancient Egyptian Coptic, the newspaper published

DEBKAfile Exclusive Report September 25, 2012, 8:50 AM (GMT+02:00)
Jordans Muslim Brotherhood has given King Abdullah II notice
that he has until October to bow to their demand to transform
the Hashemite Kingdom into a constitutional monarchy or face
Arab Spring street pressure for his abdication.
debkafiles Middle East sources report that Israeli and
Saudi intelligence watchers are becoming increasingly concerned
about the approaching climax of the conflict in Amman between
Islamists and the throne .
- For Israel, an upheaval in Jordan bodes the tightening of
the Islamist noose around its borders Egypt and Libya
to the south and Syria to the north, with unpredictable consequences
with regard to Jordans Palestinian population.
Saudi Arabia, already threatened by Iranian aggression, fears
the oil kingdom may be next in line if its northern neighbor
is crushed under the marching feet of the Arab Spring.
The oil kingdoms royal rulers are reported to have belatedly
woken up to the peril and are in a panic. They realize that their
preoccupation with helping Syrian rebels overthrow Bashar Assad
misdirected their attention from the enemies lurking at their
own door. Thousands of articles in the Arab press in the past
year have predicted that after the Muslim Brotherhood seizes
power in Damascus, Amman would be next in its sights followed
The latest DEBKA-Net-Weekly of Sept. 21 analyzed the plight closing
in on the Jordanian monarch and outlined three of his options:

do we know how to enforce with fairness whatever lines are drawn.
... Perhaps we need a five-year moratorium on making pronouncements

in a worldview that sees sexuality as sin, our means, intentions,

- TEACHING CREATIONISM LABELED CHILD ABUSE
- Friday Church News Notes, September 28, 2012, David Cloud
- The following is excerpted from Origins and Child
Abuse, Around the World with Ken Ham, Sept. 18, 2012:
An AiG supporter recently brought to my attention a blog
where creationist tours of the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum
of Nature and Science are referred to by the blogger as child
abuse. Now, this particular blog is not well known, but
it highlights an important trend among those who oppose biblical
creation. ... In one example, an atheist blogger wrote last year,
Sending children to be misinformed by this fundamentalist
is borderline child abuse (http://littlegreenfootballs.com/page/261504).
Richard Dawkins makes an argument that Christianity--specifically
belief in the truth of Scripture--is child abuse in his book
The God Delusion. ... In 2011, a well-trafficked atheist blog
reviewed and gave away copies of a book on how religion is child
abuse. In order to receive a copy, people had to post my name,
Ken Ham, in the comments--the clear implication being
that creationism is a form of abuse (http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2011/06/18/shedding-light-on-religious-child-maltreatment/).
P.Z. Myers, a professor at the University of Minnesota, said
that thinking such as creationism works as a kind of brute-force
psychological hammer when abusing the mind of an 8-year-old
And even Bill Nye, though he did not use the phrase child
abuse, made the point that parents who teach their children
creationism teach them to live in inconsistent worlds
and destroy their hopes for a scientifically literate
This is all clear evidence of a culture that willingly suppresses
the truth of Gods Word. http://www.wayoflife.org

- SETTING THE WORLD ON FIRE: STUNNING PICTURE OF RARE 'DEVIL
September 18, 2012, 6:30 am - An awe-struck filmmaker has told
of the moment he witnessed one of nature's rarest phenomena -
a fire tornado. Chris Tangey had been out in Alice Springs scouting
locations for a new movie.
- After finishing he went over to help workers at a cattle
station when he was confronted by one of nature's most intimidating
spectacles. Just 300 metres away was a 30-metre high fire swirl
which "sounded like a fighter jet", despite there being
no wind in the area.
- A fire tornado, also know as a fire devil, is caused when
a column of warm, rising air comes into contact - or causes -
a fire on the ground. These fire whirls are known to last for
around two minutes on the very rare occasions they take place.
- But Chris found himself mesmerised by the tornado for more
than 40 minutes. The 52-year-old said: "The weather was
perfectly still and it was about 25 degrees celsius - it was
an entirely uneventful day.
- "Then the next thing a man is yelling 'what the hell
is that?' and I turned around and saw a 30-metre fire tornado.
- "I was about 300 metres away and there was no wind but
the tornado sounded just like a fighter jet. My jaw just dropped."
Chris, who runs Alice Springs Film and Television, described
it as a "once in ten lifetimes experience".
- He added: "I've been shooting in the outback for 23
years and I have never seen anything like it. We've heard about
them but they're never seen. "If I had known what was about
to happen then I would have happily paid $1,000 to watch it.
"At any time there were three different tornadoes, it just
kept going and going for 40 minutes. "The whole experience
was staggering and the length and variety were astonishing."
Although they are rare, these spectacles are extremely dangerous.
In 1923, a fire whirl emerged during Japan's Great Kanto Earthquake
and killed 38,000 people in just 15 minutes. http://au.news.yahoo.com/world/a/-/world/14878513/rare-pictures-fire-tornado/
- TAXPAYERS SPENT $1.4B ON OBAMA FAMILY LAST YEAR,
PERKS QUESTIONED IN NEW BOOK
Published 9.26.2012 By Alex Pappas
Taxpayers spent $1.4 billion dollars on everything from staffing,
housing, flying and entertaining President Obama and his family
last year, according to the author of a new book on taxpayer-funded
- In comparison, British taxpayers spent just $57.8 million
on the royal family.
- Author Robert Keith Gray writes in Presidential Perks
Gone Royal that Obama isnt the only president to
have taken advantage of the expensive trappings of his office.
But the amount of money spent on the first family, he argues,
has risen tremendously under the Obama administration and needs
to be reined in.
- Gray told The Daily Caller that the $1.4 billion spent on
the Obama family last year is the total cost of the presidency,
factoring the cost of the biggest staff in history at the
highest wages ever, a 50 percent increase in the numbers
of appointed czars and an Air Force One running with the
frequency of a scheduled air line.
- The most concerning thing, I think, is the use of taxpayer
funds to actually abet his re-election, Gray, who worked
in the Eisenhower administration and for other Republican presidents,
said in an interview with TheDC on Wednesday.
- The press has been so slow in picking up on this extraordinary
increase in the presidents expenses, Gray told TheDC.

his 2008 campaign for president, Barack Obama transmitted signals
that he understood the GMO issue. Several key anti-GMO activists
were impressed. They thought Obama, once in the White House,
would listen to their concerns and act on them.
- These activists weren't just reading tea leaves. On the campaign
trail, Obama said:
"Let folks know when their food is genetically modified,
because Americans have a right to know what they're buying."
Making the distinction between GMO and non-GMO was certainly
an indication that Obama, unlike the FDA and USDA, saw there
was an important line to draw in the sand. Continued:
- OBAMA STORE SELLS OBAMERICAN FLAG
Thomas Lifson - September 20, 2012
I am shocked that the Obama store would sell a version of the
American flag with the fifty stars replaced by the campaign's
iconic O with flowing stripes across the bottom. But for 35 bucks
you can get a "Screen print designed by Ross Bruggink and
Dan Olson of Studio MPLS. Limited edition (250 units), hand-numbered,
24'' x 36'' and made in the USA."
- Obviously, the people involved in the project never met (or
don't give a damn about) anyone who fought for the American flag
and remains passionate about the respect it deserves, nay demands.
While the sensitivities if Muslims about a movie trailer are
worthy of a full grovel, the feelings of people who regard the
American flag as a sacred symbol matter not at all.
- The ego and idolatry involved here are staggering. L'etat
c'est moi comes to mind. There have been ample disturbing signs
of a dear leader wannabe propaganda operation before, but actually
defacing the symbol of the nation into the leader's cult is a
new low. [For proof check the link. It's all there]:
- WHO WILL WIN AND WILL IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE IN YOUR INVESTMENTS?
YES AND YES!
- Email: On Sun, Sep 16, 2012 at 3:08 PM, Bill Kennedy <email@example.com>
- Finally, after years of campaigning, debates and never-ending
television coverage, the November elections are upon us. Who
will win and will it make any difference in your investments?
Yes and yes!
- Will President Obama win re-election, or will Governor Romney
occupy the White House in January?
- Right now Intrade, the political futures market, shows Mr.
Obama as the heavy favorite by 58% to 42%.
- But much could change between now and November 6, and Intrade
has had a checkered past in its ability to predict winners
- A better record has been recorded by several economists who
have developed economic models that have been surprisingly accurate.
- And all of them agree: President Obama is in serious trouble
and is likely to lose in November!
- Here are the results of four of the best forecasters in the
- 1. Two political scientists at the University of Colorado,
Ken Bickers and Michael Berry, used their economic indicator
model to predict who would win in November. Their model has correctly
predicted the outcome of the past eight elections, and this year
they predict a big Romney victory with nearly 53% of the vote,
with Romney winning almost all the swing states.
- 2. Nigel Gault, the chief U.S. economist at HIS Global Insights,
a Boston-based research firm, uses proprietary methods and various
economic variables, shows the president in even worse shape.
The high unemployment rate (8.1%) is a crucial variable,
he states, and based on his model, Obama will garner only 45.4%
of the popular vote.
- 3. Two economists, David Rothschild of Microsoft Research
and Patrick Hummel of Google, have created a model that is both
political and economic, and they too show President Obama losing.
- 4. Ray C. Fair, the Yale economics professor, has developed
a successful prediction model that covers elections since 1916.
His model depends entirely on the strength of the economy. Right
now he has Romney leading by only one percentage point, 50.5%
to Obamas 49.5%, but he says there is a 2.5% standard
error, so the election is too close to call.
