Jesus Calls For A Jihad & Insists on The Redistribution Of Wealth

Header from Rapture Ready

UPDATE:1:16 PM & 4:16 PM & 5:48 PMOct.16,2009

The Ultraconservatives and Republicans have gone over the edge joining Glenn Beck et al:Muslims everywhere OMG next thing you know America will have a black president-oh no I see they do??? WTF!!! Is America about to self-destruct conspiracies everywhere.

"GOPers Run 'Witch Hunt' for Muslim Spies
Advocacy group tries to place Muslim interns in Congress. So?" Oct. 16, 2009

Ron Luce at BattleCry Event with Navy Seal- so is Luce's idea of Spiritual Warfare and calling on young people to be Spiritual Warriors for Jesus is he suggesting not so subtly that they become actual warrior with rifles to Take Back America.Odd how he sees Jesus not as a Pacifist but as a no-nonsense ultraconservative Republican who is worried about the ups and downs of the American dollar.

Picture Republican Jesus

Anyway here's a funny bit from the Daily Show-Jon Stewart et al
Even Stevphen Islam vs Christianity

and now for another little sermon from the Bible we turn to Luke on and the Redistribution of Wealth in Jesus Name:
No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other:or else he will hold to the one,and despise the other.Ye cannot serve God and mammon.(Luke 16:13)
There was a certain rich man, which clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day.(Luke 16:19)
And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores.(Luke 16:20)
And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table:moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.(16:21)
And it came to pass,that the beggar died,and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died and was buried; (Luke 16:22)
And in Hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.(16:23)
(to a rich man Jesus proclaims)
"Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come follow me.(Luke 18: 22)
How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!(Luke 18:24)
For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (Luke 18:25)
(From the King James Version of The Bible)

Now these lines which are purportedly those of Jesus the Nazarene- or the Christ are rather troubling given that according to the popular prosperity Gospel as preached especially in America by Evangelicals in its various manifestation claims that the rich and powerful are in fact God's Chosen ones. That is why they are able to be so prosperous. On the flipside those who are not rich or powerful are the losers whom God/Jesus condemns to suffering in this life and the next.

But Jesus says that those who are rich must give up their wealth and distribute it among the poor. (The distribution of wealth -Jesus was a bloody socialists and therefore according to Glenn beck,Michele Bachman, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity,Lou Dobbs, Michelle Malkin, Pastor John Hagee, Rush Limbaugh , Ron Luce , Lou Engle, Joe Scarborough & Pastor Scarborough ,James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and other leaders of the religious right and the members of the Republican party Jesus would be condemned to Hell if they had their way.

But if one were a Christian who took Jesus at his word and believed that the Bible was to be taken literally and that it was without error ,inerrant then one would be forced to conclude that anyone seeking to amass a great deal of wealth for one's personal use and gain that such a person was not honoring Jesus or God but was honoring materialism and earthly pleasures and hedonism . A mind bent on amassing such wealth then is putting Jesus and /or God second. So Glenn Beck should be giving away most of his yearly salary of 23 million, Pat Robertson should give away a few hundred million and Limbaugh should give away 40 or 50 million. But that's not going to happen.

What a conundrum. Ah not so fast just pick out other bits in the Bible which would supply these Fat Cats with an excuse for being rich . So they conclude that surely they are not possessed by the God Mammon but in fact are righteous and being rewarded by God -yeah that's the ticket (SNL)

This of course explains why they believe it is unfitting and unChristian and UnAmerican to develop social programs which are of benefit to all Americans ie health Care, Public Schools which might benefit the working poor without the poor having to beg for it. You see these rich cats they believe the poor must suffer and in their suffering beg for handouts-mere scraps from the rich man's table. It never occurred to them that Jesus might believe in social justice because their Jesus is really an unjust bastard who has no time for the whines of the lame, the sick, the poor the insane etc. Let them die as Scrooge says and decrease the surplus population.

Odd how these "self-Righteous" Christians rail against Darwin and Evolution but yet find no problem with accepting their own form of the survival of the fittest or survival of the Holiest and most God fearing and screw those who are unfortunate except to provide them with the odd bowl of soup and Turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Meanwhile while condemning the wealthy and banning them from Heaven and demanding the redistribution of wealth he calls for a Jihad against his enemies:

"But those mine enemies,which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither,and slay them before me." (St. Luke 19: 27)

So Jesus said we are told that his followers must slay all those who do not believe in him or in God. Isn't this a Jihad. And Christians historically took these word to hear and mass murdered the Pagans of the Roman Empire and later the Muslims, Jews and the Byzantine Christians and other heretics down through the centuries.

We also know that Bush proclaimed a crusade the day after 9/11 and they have continued along this path ever since while blaming the people of these areas for resisting being governed by foreign invaders. So it is not mere fantasy or conspiratorial thinking that these "True Christians" might embark on more foreign crusades and possibly one nearer home to defeat the Enemy Within -Muslims, Liberals, Secular humanists etc.

Muslim exposes Christian about Jihad!

So here is Bill Johnson of the Religious Right calling for Real Christians to be warriors for Jesus to fight against those who have come under the control of evil, the Devil, Satan, the Anti-Christ or principalities (Islam). Lucky for us God leaves messages on Johnson's Website and on Twitter so he knows what God wants; he's not just guessing; no way,no how.

Bill Johnson:Urgent Call to Prayer-Preaching Hate Against All Muslims- God never said to love your enemies and if he did you should kill them without hate or malice but as a form of "Mercy Killing" since these poor souls are possessed by evil spirits or demons.
He says Rifqa is the new Esther who will fight these evil forces

and now Blackwater/XE enters the scene -its CEO Erik Prince who is and Evangelical Fundamentalist who believes the War on Terror is a Holy War to destroy Islam is now actively offering his services to leaders of the Religious Right and their followers. This would be a rather dangerous alliance.

Blackwater Offers Training to 'Faith Based Organizations'Posted by Jeremy Scahill, Rebel Reports at 11:40 AM on September 21, 2009.This is not a story from The Onion.

In its ever-evolving re-branding campaign, Blackwater has created a new alter-ego for part of the company’s business. Meet the "Personal Security Awareness" program, which appears to be an off-shoot of Erik Prince's Greystone, Ltd., a classic mercenary operation registered offshore in Barbados. On its website, which was registered on February 20, 2009 and went live recently, the "program" is described as "a multi-phase course which is designed to assist Non-Government Organizations, Faith Based Organizations and Commercial Businesses by providing individual personal awareness and driver training for their personnel when deployed to unfamiliar environments." It adds: "Greystone recognizes the importance of 'preparation by doing' and looks forward to you joining us for this exciting training!"

Blackwater, of course, works for such organizations as the International Republican Institute, but “Faith Based Organizations?” Are they serious? I’m sure there are just scores of Islamic aid groups just lining up to take courses from Blackwater, Xe, U.S. Training Center, Greystone, Personal Security Awareness. Moreover, any legitimate “faith based organization” that wants harmony with other faiths would be insane to work with this company. One of the courses offered is described as teaching “persons traveling to foreign environments how to remain safe during their travels in a vehicle.” This truly is surreal. What would seem more appropriate would be a company offering courses on how to “remain safe” in a vehicle when going anywhere near Blackwater forces. Remember how those unarmed Iraqi civilians were blown up in their car by Blackwater operatives at Nisour Square? Or the Afghan civilians allegedly killed in their car by Blackwater operatives in Afghanistan in May?

Religious Right Tells Pastors Christianity Being Suppressed

April 24, 2008

Coral Ridge Ministries broadcast a special called "Pastors, Pulpits, and Politics" to encourage pastors to involve their churches in this year's elections.

The strategy of encouragement seemed to revolve around convincing pastors that Christianity itself is under attack by liberals and "militant homosexuals," who supposedly harbor "totalitarian" intentions towards "suppressing" Christians a la Hitler or Stalin.
