Food, water, now fertilizer?

The Food Chain
Shortages Threaten Farmers’ Key Tool: Fertilizer: source

Published: April 30, 2008

"Some kinds of fertilizer have nearly tripled in price in the last year, keeping farmers from buying all they need. That is one of many factors contributing to a rise in food prices that, according to the United Nations’ World Food Program, threatens to push tens of millions of poor people into malnutrition."

"Protests over high food prices have erupted across the developing world, and the stability of governments from Senegal to the Philippines is threatened."

"In India, the cost of subsidizing fertilizer for farmers has soared, leading to political dispute. And in Africa, plans to stave off hunger by increasing crop yields are suddenly in jeopardy."

"Some dealers in the Midwest ran out of fertilizer last fall, and they continue to restrict sales this spring because of a limited supply."

"Manufacturers are scrambling to increase supply. At least 50 plants to make nitrogen fertilizer are under construction, many in the Middle East where natural gas is abundant, and phosphorous and potassium mines are being expanded. But these projects are expensive and time-consuming, and supplies are expected to remain tight for years."

“Without chemical fertilizer, forget it. The game is over.”
re: stability of governments from Senegal to the Philippines is threatened

In case anybody is wondering, there will be no quick easy solution to the brand new appearing out of nowhere sudden "global food crisis" i.e. rice/wheat/grain shortage. And just to be sure, we now have a second and related brand new appearing out of nowhere sudden global fertilizer shortage to compound the difficulties significantly...and the fertilizer supplies are expected to remain "tight for years", we are being told.

And there is still another 'huge related problem' that must be considered, which most certainly will compound things to an even much greater degree. Not only are the crops in short supply, and the fertilizer is in short supply, but how will the 'few crops' that are even able to be fertilized be watered, because all the way from the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon comes the news that the earth is running out of water!
Anybody buying this?
With this confluence of urgent sudden global crises, and the "stability of governments at stake", it can only mean one thing....."macro solutions" for "macro problems " i.e. authoritarian global government.
The transitioning the world into global government "game" is high stakes, and is being played for keeps.

LGBT pushing agenda

Soulforce Releases Open Letter from Jay Bakker to Joel Osteen: source

"Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 24, 2008 -- Today Soulforce released an open letter from Pastor Jay Bakker of Revolution NYC church to Rev. Joel Osteen and Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. Originally mailed in January 2008, the letter invites Osteen and families from the Lakewood congregation to share a meal with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and straight-ally families over Mother's Day weekend.

"Bakker is one of the clergy leaders of a nationwide fellowship effort called The American Family Outing. Co-organized by Soulforce, COLAGE, the National Black Justice Coalition, and the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches, the project aims to create dialogue between LGBT families and families at six American mega-churches."

"Several mega-church congregations, including Willow Creek Community Church in Illinois--ranked the most influential church in America by Church Report magazine--have responded to the invitation with interest and graciousness."

"Jay Bakker is the son of Jim Bakker and Tammy Faye Bakker Messner, and the co-founder of Revolution Church. His non-traditional approach to ministry achieved national attention in the Sundance Channel documentary One Punk Under God, which documented his journey to become an LGBT-affirming Christian."

fyi: "six American mega-churches" targeted for, again for lack of a better term, the gay invasion of Christendom. There is here a huge political agenda being 'dramatically' acted out. The "Willow Creek" and the Joel Osteen/Lakewood brand of 21st century 'christianity' both fall far short of biblical Christianity anyway, and so any type of true "Christian" response should not at all be expected. Willow Creek is currently undergoing an 'emergent' transition from their self proclaimed "seeker model" failure, while Osteen and his 'empowerment/self-help' brand of worldly-success seeking pseudo christianity is devoid of scriptural truth and has no Godly standard to uphold in the first place. These "dialogues" are simply another tool of the transformative 'change agents' to accomplish the pre-arranged outcome...further merging of the tattered remains of Christendom into the global society.
This will be knocking at the door of your church also before long, and you will have to make a decision...stay tuned.

Boaters to be 'wired'

update on: boaters-to-be-netted

Report: Small-vessel security to rely on tech tools: article

"Technology will be a key component in reducing the terrorist threat associated with the nation’s 13.2 million recreational and commercial small boats, according to a new strategy for small-vessel security released by the Homeland Security Department."

"Technology is needed for data reporting, analysis and sharing; boat tracking and detection; radiation detection; and surveillance, the report said."

"The report envisions a more detailed risk identification and management strategy to be developed by the department along with the boating community."

"Specific technologies recommended in the report are:

  • Low-cost, nonintrusive, small-vessel identification systems, such as radio frequency identification tags.
  • Adaptable miniature transponders.
  • Global Positioning System devices.
  • Cell phone-based recognition systems.
  • Anomaly detection instruments.
  • Advanced maritime radiation/nuclear detection technology for portable radiation detection equipment, mobile stand-off radiation detectors and fixed detectors."

Small Vessel Security Strategy is the official name of the new DHS program now being developed. This new electronic tracking system is being implemented under the guise of helping with 'national security', but it's the freedoms of American citizens that are once again being sacrificed on the altar of the micromanaged big-brother authoritarian system which is replacing "life as we know it". Land or sea, the all-seeing eye of the Homeland gestapo intends to keep their electronic eye on you...

Chertoff To Demonstrate New Checkpoint At BWI: source

LINTHICUM, Md. (WJZ) ― It's called checkpoint evolution, better x-rays and automatic bin returns, but some are already voicing concerns about the price tag and privacy

"Chertoff toured the $1.2 million technology followed by some of the first travelers to use it."

"What's perhaps the biggest, most interesting change is the millimeter wave machine. Basically it does a full body image scan so you can stand and someone in a separate room can see you naked. Images are very detailed, but they do blur out your face.
"Wouldn't allow media to film the images," said Chertoff."

"Chertoff says travelers can opt out of the scan and be pat down instead"

""I got to look at myself in the backroom," said Chertoff. "I didn't feel my privacy was invaded. It happened to be quite accurate.""
"Another $300,000 was spent on fancy light-up panels in the background plus new lane markers and music to calm the mood."

"Behind the scenes, there's also a change to the terror watch list to include dates of birth. Most airlines will start gathering that information from travelers when they get their boarding passes."

Christian broadcasters to need permission?

Last day to save Christian radio?: source
FCC rule change seen as threat to licenses of religious stations
Posted: April 28, 2008

"WASHINGTON – Today is the last day for public comments on a proposed Federal Communications Commission rule change some say would threaten the licenses of Christian radio stations from coast to coast."

"At issue is a proposal that would require every radio station to take programming advice from community advisory boards representative of the area's population."

"Advocates of Christian programming say that would require Christian broadcasters to seek advice from non-Christians and even those opposed to the Christian message. Some radio stations fear organized groups of atheists, for instance, could demand representation on the new FCC-mandated advisory boards that would factor into licensing decisions."

"In addition to the requirement for advisory boards, the new regulations would also mandate radio stations produce every three months reports on how much programming of various types has been broadcast, who produced it and how it reflects the interests of the community – including segments who do not approve of or share Christian values."

"The National Association of Broadcasters, which opposes the rule change, offers an online form for making comments on the FCC rule change – but the deadline is today. All comments must be filed under the assigned docket number No. 04-233, meaning that number must be included in all communications about the proposed rule change to be considered by the FCC."

"The potential Orwellian implications of such policies are chilling, the commissioner argued."
The transformation from religious freedom to a "one world-acceptable" interfaith is well underway, and non-conformance will not be tolerated. Things are moving very quickly these days. The majority of people will never even notice. The time is late.

Recreational boaters to be 'netted'

Feds fight threat of small-boat terror strikes: source

"To reduce the potential for such an attack in the United States, the Department of Homeland Security has developed a new strategy intended to increase security by enhancing safety standards. The Coast Guard is part of the department."

"While the government insists there will be no federal license, the strategy suggests that the government consider registering and regulating recreational boats."

"That is why the strategy is intended to create a layered defense that would create a national federal standard to operate a boat, Allen says."

"On Monday officials will announce the plan, which asks states to develop and enforce safety standards for recreational boaters and asks them to look for and report suspicious behavior on the water -- much like a neighborhood watch program"

"The Coast Guard will work with states to establish minimum safety standards and ways to enforce the new rules. That may include requiring boat operators to have a copy of the safety certification on board with them and a piece of identification that links them to the certificate. That's important, security officials say, because currently there is no uniform requirement for pleasure boaters to have identification on board with them on the water."

re: 'Terrorists' in small boats
Another 'threat' identified by the DHS, and just like that, "to reduce the potential", another collaborative-network pops up to control yo... uhh, 'fight terrorists' that is. This one is to be the Coast Guard working with the states, to create a "new strategy" with all sorts of new rules, regulations, and requirements, complete with enforcement methods...it will create a "national standard to operate a boat".
Military (Coast Guard) partnering with the states = national regulation of recreational boaters. Can you see how the authority of the individual states is being replaced and handed over to the various federal agencies...partnership by partnership? Welcome, once again, to the 'homeland', comrade..where also one by one your freedoms are vanishing into the deep blue sea. Be aware

Classic sermon by William Dell (1607-1669)

Preached at Cambridge, about the year 1647 by William Dell
Some time caster of Gonvil and Caius College, in Cambridge.

"And blessed is he whosoever shall not be offended in Me." Matt. 11:6
In discoursing touching the offence which is taken against CHRIST by men; I shall show,
I. Who are they that are offended at CHRIST.
II. What those things are whereat they are offended, and why they are offended at them.
III. What a great evil it is to be so offended.
IV. What a great blessedness it is not to be so offended. And,
V. Make some use of all.
"The first use is, to warn all men of all sorts that they take special care that they be not offended at CHRIST, and the things of CHRIST. You have heard that the world, and the wisest and greatest of the world are offended at CHRIST; and you have beard also how great an evil it is to be offended, and how great a blessedness it is not to be offended; wherefore I advise you to take care that you be not found amongst them who are offended at CHRIST. But you will be ready to say, "We are not offended at CHRIST; we love, honor, and embrace both CHRIST and the things of CHRIST." To this I answer, Many say they are not offended at CHRIST, and think so too, who yet indeed are grievously offended at him." read full
Little is known about William Dell, but as one author has said... "his writings are a monument to his praise, which shew the good understanding he had received in the weighty concerns of life and salvation". The above sermon is proof positive of that assessment, and is as weighty as it is excellent. With that, it is highly recommended for your studious perusal. Score it an A+
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." Rom. 1:16


Travel restrictions coming

.....and you can expect to see the global warming campaign" to have a big part to play in the implementation of them... (click the link to follow)
Radiohead have decided not to travel to the US for a promotional performance because of concerns over global warming: source

"The Oxford five-piece are due to appear on a special edition of NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien."

"Frontman Thom Yorke said the band avoided leaving a carbon footprint...."

There is always a reason why these things are publicized, and as in this case it is usually for the ongoing mass-indoctrination of the unsuspecting masses. This is a perfect example, one which most everybody would pay little or no attention to, but it is sending a huge signal to any who are willing to read between the lines, so to speak.
And just what exactly would that be?
This: Here can now be seen what could be called the 'climate change leverage tool'(*remember that phrase), which will be a multi-purpose tool, and one of it's uses apparently will be to remove your rights to 'move about as you please', and is only going to escalate as the global agenda continues to unfold...and...maybe sooner than later, used to force you into a radically altered lifestyle, i.e. micromanaged/controlled by the 'global masters'.

This little propaganda stunt in which the rock group Radiohead are being 'used', who most likely are unaware and sincere in their ideology, nevertheless should be seen as an omen of the times ahead.....watch and see

"spirit of error" (1 John 4:6) news updates

Evidently the ol' 'homosexual debate' is so passe' that the time has now come to break some new ground in the ongoing corruption of the final state of Christendom...known as the Laodicean church. fyi
Transgender Talks Begin at United Methodist Meeting: source

"Hundreds of United Methodists have begun looking over some 1,500 petitions that have been proposed by those seeking change in church policies and structures, among other things, during the church's quadrennial gathering."

"Debates on whether gay Christians can be ordained as clergy have gone on for decades in the denomination and most recently, controversy has erupted over transgendered persons."

"The Rev. Drew Phoenix, pastor of St. John's United Methodist Church in Baltimore, sparked debate when the transgender minister was allowed last year to remain pastor of the church. Phoenix, who previously led the church as the Rev. Ann Gordon, underwent surgery and hormone therapy to become male."

"Phoenix argues that transgenderism is compatible with Christian teaching."

""It was in the context of my faith in Christ, led by the Spirit, that I made the transition (of gender)," Phoenix said. “We want to be known as the children God created us to be. That’s been my experience with my church, across the board.""

see: final and ultimate corruption of Christendom underway; compare with: as-it-was-in-days-of-lot
Led by the 'spirit' to make the gender transition?

Yes, probably so. Only thing about it though.....it certainly was not the Holy Spirit, that is not possible. No, this falls clearly into the realm of that "another spirit" that the apostle Paul wrote of:

2 Cor. 11: 3-4 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

Joint Chiefs Chairman Says U.S. Preparing Military Options Against Iran: source
April 25, 2008;

"The nation's top military officer said today that the Pentagon is planning for "potential military courses of action" against Iran, criticizing what he called the Tehran government's "increasingly lethal and malign influence" in Iraq"

"Still, Mullen made clear that he prefers a diplomatic solution to the tensions with Iran and does not foresee any imminent military action. "I have no expectations that we're going to get into a conflict with Iran in the immediate future," he said."

"Mullen's statements and others by Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates recently signal a new rhetorical onslaught by the Bush administration against Iran.."
"Pentagon is planning..."
Are they preparing military options, or preparing the people? We in this country, the 'homeland', are now being heavily propagandized as preparation for the next phase of the mandatory-global-integration plan. While stating that no military action is "imminent", the door has now been swung wide open for "potential military courses of action." The one-world global agenda is about to forge ahead, and it will undoubtedly be felt in many different spheres....including a possible reinstating of the military draft as there is now a bill concerning this still active in congress (H.R.393 ), it could be used to possibly effect the upcoming presidential elections....(martial law anybody? see NSPD 51; and Northcom). Throw in a 'food shortage' or 'financial collapse' etc., and it's anybody's guess....The bottom line is that the 'world-uniters' are not playing and the time is drawing ever shorter...(click the global-integration link above for important info to see this clearly). Be informed...the impact will be felt.

Playing the 'food card'?

Placing the terrorist threat to the food supply in perspective: source

"With global food supplies already tight, many people have begun once again to think (and perhaps even worry) about threats to the U.S. agricultural system and the impact such threats could have on the U.S. — and global — food supply. In light of this, it is instructive to examine some of these threats and attempt to place them in perspective."
"Attacks designed to poison people could also be further divided into two general forms: those intended to introduce toxins or pathogens prior to processing and those intended to attack finished food products."
"It must be noted that an attack against people could also be conducted for the purposes of creating a mass disruption — such action would not be designed to cause mass casualties, but rather to create fear, unrest and mistrust of the government and food supply, or to promote hoarding. In fact, based on historical examples of incidents involving the contamination of food products, such an attack is far more likely to occur than a serious systematic attack on the food supply."
"However, if even a relatively unsuccessful attack on the food supply were conducted by a terrorist group, it could create significant hysteria — especially if the media sensationalized the event. In such a case, even an ineffective terror plot could result in a tremendous amount of panic and economic loss."
"In the end, the most probable attack against the food supply is unlikely to create a significant death toll, but the panic such an attack may evoke can cause repercussions that are far greater than the death toll itself."
A 'terrorist' attack on the food supply....
We are to believe...might cause mass disruption, fear, unrest, mistrust of government, hysteria.....would that be cause enough for martial law? A declaration of martial law would put this country into the regional global management system instantaneously, and permanently. Something to consider.....

How bad is it? Ravi Zacharias, Dobsons Head Up Apostate "National Day Of Prayer" (To Whom?)

from "Slice of Laodicea": Ashamed of Jesus at the National Day of Prayer?

The 2008 Honorary Chairman of the National Day of Prayer, Dr. Ravi Zacharias, is refusing to pray in the name of Jesus Christ in his prayer posted on the official NDP website. Dr. Zacharias’ prayer can be read here. A receptionist with the National Day of Prayer in Colorado Springs stated that the Honorary Chairman’s prayer does not include the name of Jesus so as not to offend the Jewish participants in the event, and that others are free to pray in Jesus’ name if they desire. Contrast that betrayal of Jesus Christ with the faithfulness of the first martyr, the Apostle Stephen, who died in a hail of stones for his fearless preaching of Christ crucified to the Jewish religious leaders of his day. (Read full, click linked title; and here you can read the follow up to this first article: An Update
This is an important article to read for any who would understand the need to attempt to stay abreast of the ever worsening and open apostatising of what used to be the Christian church. It is rapidly being devoured by the global 'interreligious' beast. Note that it is being led into the jaws of the beast by those who would be recognized as "national leaders", in this case Zacharias and James and Shirley Dobson, Shirley being the person heading up the so-called National Day of Prayer which is the event in question.
Any who will not in these days dillegently guard against the tremendous (and prophesied; 2 Thes. 2:3) "falling away" (Greek/apostasia) that is unquestionably sweeping across the land, will also be devoured by the deception and certainly be found as one who too has 'fallen away'. Come out of her my people...Rev. 18:4

Deconstructing the world

It's on...

Artificially jacking up the prices on everything while at the same time creating lack and then rationing others is a designed method to bring the people to their knees (Christian, you should already be on your knees). This is the strategy, and it is/will happen 'here' too, regardless of those who remain unaware. To transition from a sovereign country to a regionally managed section of the global government (Canamerexico), as is now currently underway, requires a tremendous effort, and life as we know it will be forever altered. This is truly the rising of the 666. It's no game, and the message is being sent out, as seen here, with this message from the WSJ. The ante has just been raised....the time is growing ever shorter.

McLaren vs. The Bible

Infidels gone wild...

A very simple "contrast and compare" of a few things that recognized emerging church promoter Brian McLaren taught at his recent youth conference (4/9-11/08): shifting-youth

McLaren quotes taken from this conference report: article
McLaren versus the Bible:

1. McLaren says: Though he did not specify at Willow Creek which traditional doctrines need revision, McLaren wrote in his 2007 book "Everything Must Change" that the doctrine of hell needs radical rethinking. He argues that people who believe in hell may be inclined to dominate and take advantage of other people, rather than help them.
(hell is not real?)
The Bible says:
Proverbs 15:24 The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.
Matthew 5:29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Matthew 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
2Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
(How does telling the people the truth about the existence of hell, so as to steer them away from it, equate to dominating and taking advantage?)
2. McLaren says: "Many of us have been increasingly critical in recent years of popular American eschatology in general, and conventional views of hell in particular," he wrote. "Simply put, if we believe that God will ultimately enforce his will by forceful domination, and will eternally torture all who resist that domination, then torture and domination become not only permissible but in some way godly."
(forcefulness.....eternal "torment"?)
The Bible says:
Jesus believed in hell...see the story of Lazarus: "the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lifted up his eyes, being in torments..." (Luke 16:19-31)
Ps. 101:8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
Isaiah 13:9 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.
Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
(Not only permissible, but Godly indeed..for God!)
3. McLaren says: "This eschatological understanding of a violent second coming leads us to believe (as we've said before) that in the end, even God finds it impossible to fix the world apart from violence and coercion; no one should be surprised when those shaped by this theology behave accordingly," McLaren wrote.
(How can the world be fixed...when it's full of unrepentant sinners?)
The Bible says:
Psalms 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
Rev. 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
Isaiah 11:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

(How does believing God's word equate to "behaving accordingly"? Almighty God alone is able to "treadeth the winepress" of His fierceness and of His wrath!)
4. McLaren says: The book of Revelation does not actually teach that there will be a new heaven and a new earth, he wrote, but that a new way of living is possible within this universe if humans will follow Jesus' example.
(Revelation does not teach a new heaven and earth?)
The Bible says:
REVELATION 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
5. McLaren says: By going to the cross, McLaren argued in his book, Jesus committed an act similar to the Chinese student at Tiananmen Square in the late 1980s -- he placed himself in harm's way to demonstrate the injustice of a society that would harm a peaceful and godly man.
The Bible says:
1 Cor. 15:-43 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures:
(In what bizzare way is there any correlation whatsoever to the protesting student in China?)
The Bible also says:
Jude 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
6. McLaren says: In attempts to solve these problems, humans often have resorted to imperialism, revolution, scapegoating and isolation, McLaren said. But Jesus offered an alternative strategy that offers people the prosperity, equity and security they seek, he said.
Did jesus offer prosperity, equity and security, or...... hatred of the world, tribulation, and persecution....but, peace in him! (Christ)

The Bible says:

John 15:18-19 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

2Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
(looks like the truth is: hatred of the world, tribulation, and persecution....but peace in him!)
7. McLaren says: Citing the Lord's Prayer, he told conference attendees that youth ministers must shift their thinking and teach teens that involvement in earthly matters is more pressing than focus on eternal matters.

(earthly matters, or eternal/heavenly?)

The Bible says:

COLOSSIANS 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
8. McLaren says: In the breakout session, McLaren said the world is moving from an era of modern thinking to an era of postmodern thinking and youth ministers must transition their teaching accordingly.
Though older Christian ministers may be able to remain in the bubble of modern thinking, youth pastors must trust God through this time of transition and make a change to new ways of thinking, he said.

(new ways of thinking?)

The Bible says:
Psalms 119:89 Forever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
The bible also says this about those who would attempt to twist the true meaning of the scriptures:

Gal. 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
see also infidels; deep-shift-deep-deception (attacking the Revelation)
These eight "comparisons", showing the utter disregard for truth, represent only a portion of the blatant and absolutely aberrant heresy that was force-fed to the youth by McLaren in his latest conference. Shameless in his open denial of and reinventing of scripture, the whole thing is simply a mechanism to merge Christianity into the antichrist one world global spirituality, and he's got open access to your kids. He's pied-piping the whole lot right into the strong delusion.....pastors, parents, teachers, save your kids from this, kids, save yourselves and your friends from this wretched false infidel globalized religious deception. It's designed to make you into a global volunteer social worker...for the Antichrist world system. And it already is anti-christ because it is a 'false jesus' being taught...it is "anti" i.e. against....the real gospel. That is antichrist. This is critically important.....be a 'solo penguin' if you have to!
Rev. 18:4

Partnerships for global control

Global food crisis ‘silent tsunami’ threatening over 100 million people, warns UN: un.org

"22 April 2008 – The head of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today called for urgent action to tackle the “silent tsunami” of rising food prices"

"“The response calls for large-scale, high-level action by the global community, focused on emergency and longer-term solutions,” she added."

"Stressing the role of partnerships in fighting the food “emergency,” she said WFP has been working with donor governments, other UN agencies, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund and other humanitarian actors, including non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to ensure a coordinated response."

"In a related development, World Bank President Robert B. Zoellick has welcomed Japanese Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda’s intention to put the food crisis on the agenda of the Group of Eight summit, to be held in Japan in July."

"High level action by the global community", and "Stressing the role of partnerships":

How to 'unite' the world, which if careful attention is paid to the language used, has now already become a "global community"? (now it just remains to get it to function as a "community"). This uniting will be accomplished through the "role of partnerships"...and this is being done by building one partnership at a time...see: collaborative-networks

As seen in this article above, Japan is on board. They have their own "food crisis" see: here

Feds to Require International Visitors Be Fingerprinted Before Leaving U.S.
Monday, April 21, 2008: article

"U.S. officials already collect fingerprints from visitors when they come into the country, but the administration has yet to complete the exit portion of the tracking program — known as US-VISIT.

"Lawmakers, including Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., have pressed the department to roll out its biometric exit system for more than a year."

""Any uncertainty about who is entering and leaving our country is an unacceptable risk that must be addressed," Thompson, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said in a statement Monday."

The Message Of Christianity Is The Cross

The message of the cross ( 1 Cor. 1:17-18). No longer found in Christendom today. The 'cross' separates the "outward professors" from the "inward possessors". The true Christian from the false. Many may say Lord, Lord, but many will also hear "in that day", "I never knew you: depart..."
"MANY will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." Matt. 7:22-23
Without the preaching of the cross, there is no gospel. Here then is a classic little writing on the true meaning of the cross by another famous preacher of the past, A. W. Tozer.
The Old Cross and the New

ALL UNANNOUNCED AND MOSTLY UNDETECTED there has come in modern times a new cross into popular evangelical circles. It is like the old cross, but different: the likenesses are superficial; the differences, fundamental.

From this new cross has sprung a new philosophy of the Christian life, and from that new philosophy has come a new evangelical technique-a new type of meeting and a new kind of preaching. This new evangelism employs the same language as the old, but its content is not the same and its emphasis not as before.

The old cross would have no truck with the world. For Adam's proud flesh it meant the end of the journey. It carried into effect the sentence imposed by the law of Sinai. The new cross is not opposed to the human race; rather, it is a friendly pal and, if understood aright, it is the source of oceans of good clean fun and innocent enjoyment. It lets Adam live without interference. His life motivation is unchanged; he still lives for his own pleasure, only now he takes delight in singing choruses and watching religious movies instead of singing bawdy songs and drinking hard liquor. The accent is still on enjoyment, though the fun is now on a higher plane morally if not intellectually.

The new cross encourages a new and entirely different evangelistic approach. The evangelist does not demand abnegation of the old life before a new life can be received. He preaches not contrasts but similarities. He seeks to key into public interest by showing that Christianity makes no unpleasant demands; rather, it offers the same thing the world does, only on a higher level. Whatever the sin-mad world happens to be clamoring after at the moment is cleverly shown to be the very thing the gospel offers, only the religious product is better.
The new cross does not slay the sinner, it redirects him. It gears him into a cleaner and jollier way of living and saves his self-respect. To the self-assertive it says, "Come and assert yourself for Christ." To the egotist it says, "Come and do your boasting in the Lord." To the thrill seeker it says, "Come and enjoy the thrill of Christian fellowship." The Christian message is slanted in the direction of the current vogue in order to make it acceptable to the public.

The philosophy back of this kind of thing may be sincere but its sincerity does not save it from being false. It is false because it is blind. It misses completely the whole meaning of the cross.

The old cross is a symbol of death. It stands for the abrupt, violent end of a human being. The man in Roman times who took up his cross and started down the road had already said good-by to his friends. He was not coming back. He was going out to have it ended. The cross made no compromise, modified nothing, spared nothing; it slew all of the man, completely and for good. It did not try to keep on good terms with its victim. It struck cruel and hard, and when it had finished its work, the man was no more.

The race of Adam is under death sentence. There is no commutation and no escape. God cannot approve any of the fruits of sin, however innocent they may appear or beautiful to the eyes of men. God salvages the individual by liquidating him and then raising him again to newness of life.

That evangelism which draws friendly parallels between the ways of God and the ways of men is false to the Bible and cruel to the souls of its hearers. The faith of Christ does not parallel the world, it intersects it. In coming to Christ we do not bring our old life up onto a higher plane; we leave it at the cross. The corn of wheat must fall into the ground and die.

We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum.

God offers life, but not an improved old life. The life He offers is life out of death. It stands always on the far side of the cross. Whoever would possess it must pass under the rod. He must repudiate himself and concur in God's just sentence against him.

What does this mean to the individual, the condemned man who would find life in Christ Jesus? How can this theology be translated into life? Simply, he must repent and believe. He must forsake his sins and then go on to forsake himself. Let him cover nothing, defend nothing, excuse nothing. Let him not seek to make terms with God, but let him bow his head before the stroke of God's stern displeasure and acknowledge himself worthy to die.

Having done this let him gaze with simple trust upon the risen Saviour, and from Him will come life and rebirth and cleansing and power. The cross that ended the earthly life of Jesus now puts an end to the sinner; and the power that raised Christ from the dead now raises him to a new life along with Christ.

To any who may object to this or count it merely a narrow and private view of truth, let me say God has set His hallmark of approval upon this message from Paul's day to the present. Whether stated in these exact words or not, this has been the content of all preaching that has brought life and power to the world through the centuries. The mystics, the reformers, the revivalists have put their emphasis here, and signs and wonders and mighty operations of the Holy Ghost gave witness to God's approval.

Dare we, the heirs of such a legacy of power, tamper with the truth? Dare we with our stubby pencils erase the lines of the blueprint or alter the pattern shown us in the Mount? May God forbid. Let us preach the old cross and we will know the old power. (A. W. Tozer; "Man, the Dwelling Place of God", 1966)

Luke 14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

Christian TV Host 'Comes Out,' Gets Support from Church: source

"The young host of a Christian music television show has come out publicly as a gay man, but to his surprise he has received more encouraging support than expected from the church."

""The amazing amount of support and encouragement has astounded me. I've never received so much encouragement like this, not from the church.""

"He's not alone as a gay Christian, he says. There are many gay people in the Christian industry, Southworth said, but it's "hush-hush" and they're scared to come out, he noted."

"Raised a Pentecostal, Southworth currently identifies himself as a follower of Jesus and does not affiliate with any denomination. He attends three different churches in Nashville, Tenn., one of which is led by a gay partnered pastor."
Without a better way to put this...the "gay invasion" of Christianity, which has been ongoing for a while, is now 'coming out' into the open. If you belong to a church today you will be, sooner or later, confronted with this issue, and have to make a choice. Politically correct, or God's truth, honor, and holiness? God's truth, honor, and holiness are being smeared all over the ground now in 2008.
This utter corruption of the 'outward professing church' is also a fulfillment of bible prophecy. The Word of God foretells of this corrupted condition of the 'outward professing church' as being the last, final state of Christendom, and tells us that at that time it will merge into and become part of the global system of the Antichrist. This is biblical prophecy (Rev. 3:16-17). The true church, as opposed to the "outward professing" one, is to be separated out from this corrupted parody of religiousness (2 Cor. 6:17). Will you separate?
1 Cor. 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Rivers Running Dry
A water crisis is impending:

""The whole West is under the gun here." And while the threat may be less immediate in regions such as the Northeast, less water in one area can mean less food and more illness in another."

"Sachs advocates using a combination of these and other similar strategies...."

"But implementing any of these takes planning, organization and leadership. "Politicians don't want to bear the costs of adjustment," Sachs says. "So they ignore the problem and continue the same unsustainable practices."

"There is no single solution. Governments, industries and individuals will collaborate or suffer the consequences. However responsibility is divided, we can no longer take our most renewable resource for granted."
Here again is how the 'global management system' (aka Agenda 21) is being created: "Planning, organization and leadership" is required to create the necessary collaboration between governments, industries, and private individuals. This "planning and organization" brings all the parties to the table.

Very simply, 'identify a crisis', create collaboration between the different segments of society, voila...another 'interlinked system' ready to be placed into the bigger 'global system'. Those who are involved, for the most part, have no idea that this is what's really happening. Be informed...this will eventually impact every person everywhere...again, he who controls the water controls the planet.
