""Like all communist party-states, the CCP maintains a general contempt for religion, viewing it as an existential threat to its absolute control over Chinese society""
As a political philosophy the unsaved part of the world see communism simply as an ideology which doesn't quite fit all types. Therefore they assume it is simply a matter of changing the minds of those who are besotted by it. EG: China and Russia.
But it is more than human philosophy - it is a belief system which dominates the minds of reprobates all over the planet. There are many Democrats in the US who favour this kind of people dictatorship. There are many in UK politics who also want communist despotics for British people control.
Communism invariable results in a Stalin figure at its head - with a few heads chopped on his way up the ladder.
Why are people so gullible and stupid?
Because that is the human way, just look at false religions such as popery, anglican, episcopalian, JW's, mormons buddhism, and all the other fairy tales which people believe.
So in communism "Truth" is the very last idea you want in peoples brains. After all domination is what politicians want - And they 'KNOW BEST' don't they???
Big Brother communism is tyranny over the gullible and credulous.
âIf one makes no use of intelligence or medicine when he could do so without detriment to his neighbor, such a person injures his body and must beware lest he become a suicide in Godâs eyes. By the same reasoning a person might forego eating and drinking, clothing and shelter, and boldly proclaim his faith that if God wanted to preserve him from starvation and cold, he could do so without food and clothing. Actually that would be suicide. It is even more shameful for a person to pay no heed to his own body and to fail to protect it against the plague the best he is able, and then to infect and poison others who might have remained alive if he had taken care of his body as he should have. He is thus responsible before God for his neighborâs death and is a murderer many times over. Indeed, such people behave as though a house were burning in the city and nobody were trying to put the fire out. Instead they give leeway to the flames so that the whole city is consumed, saying that if God so willed, he could save the city without water to quench the fire.
No, my dear friends, that is no good. Use medicine; take potions which can help youâ (M.Luther) (Whether One May Flee from the Plague)
""LGBT leaders and supporters in the Church of England are threatening a mass walkout""
Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another"
This part of the Church of England belongs to Satan and should go and join him.
PRE-Christian state which is where we find the unsaved muslims, invited to this conference. Who BTW have not been converted by God.
"There are those of us who do not dare to be wise beyond what is written, nor do we boast by other menâs measure of what God has or has not done for us. We say that indwelling sin lives in us to some degree as long as we are in this world. We do not dare to speak as âthough we had already attained, or were already perfect.â Our âinward man is to be renewed day by dayâ while we live here. Amid the renovations of the new are the breaches and decays of the old. While we are here we âknow but in part.â We have a darkness remaining that needs to be gradually removed by our âgrowth in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.â But âthe flesh lusts against the Spirit, so that we cannot do the things that we want to do,â and we are therefore defective in our obedience as well as in our light. We have a âbody of deathâ from which we are not delivered until the death of our bodies. Now, having a duty to mortify, to kill sin while it is in us, we need to get to work. If someone is appointed to kill an enemy, and he ceases striking before the other ceases living, he does only half his work." (John Owen)(Mortification of Sin)
""The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission to investigate reports of âconversion therapyâ""
Their version of so called "Human Rights" try to teach society that there is no such thing as "Human Wrongs"
This is just another attack upon GOD and the Bible by Satan and his followers.
Todays abomination of PC Liberalism is the bottom line of iniquity and wickedness being let loose in society.
Reprobate sinners are the majority of people on earth, thus the Christian community face a major battle with the reprobates and their new Liberalist Relativism. = The radical excuse for removing morals and ethical standards.
Yes GOD will be victorious; - But the battle will continue on.
Psalm 18:39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me."
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
"Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience."
"For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authoritiesâall things were created through him and for him."
"Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good."
"For so is the will of God, that with well doing you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:"
ââThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a travel advisory urging âpostponing travelâ plans as coronavirus cases surge.ââ
Disobedience is the natural state of the reprobates.
Iniquity and transgression are the very nature of mankind making them the perfect rebels. Authority has no respect from the masses especially in these days of satanic PC Liberalism which automatically rejects any authority.
Man promotes authorities within society â Then immediately rebels against them. Because we are all born sinners.
One of the gifts of faith is to overcome the evil heart and sin of the person.
The fallen world is naturally ignorant, blind and alienated from any good. Eph 4:18/19 refers.
Expect mankind always to be disobedient children and servants of Satan.
Satan's followers are bound to be on the Left, that is where they can arrange abortions, abominations and fraudulent elections.
It seems from life on earth among the various communities - evil, criminal, wicked, Democrat (Liberalist) politicians and bureaucrats are distinctly found on the Left.
Whereas normal and decent people are found on the right.
Is that a specific creation result -
Romans 9:20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? 22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:"
Proverbs 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil."
ladybug wrote: Faith does NOT save you, your 'faith' isn't the reason you enter into His kingdom. Many have 'faith' in their 'faith'..... Only the finished work of Christ saves, that is the ONLY propitiatory work that God the Father accepts. He doesn't accept your 'faith' as a means of entrance into His kingdom, He only looks to the finished work of His Son. He gives His elect the ability to trust
Wow? It seems you have absolutely NO faith in faith? THUS no 'faith' in GOD's "gift"?
Wonder why God gave you such an ineffectual insignificant gift? Btw: If God gave the elect the ability to "TRUST" ? = (Faith)?
.... Sirs, what must I do to be saved? Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
1John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
1Cor 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe."
Heb 10:39. Eph 2:8. Mark 16:16. Rom 10:9. 1John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith."
Think not of yourself as having any ability, without Christ. Thus Without Justification???
âI arrogated the little good I had, to my own wisdom and diligence; but you have undeceived my partial mistakes, and now have effectually convinced me that every excellence is entirely your gift (Jas 1.17); that without you we can do nothing (Joh 15.5); and as the psalmist well observes, unless you, Lord, are pleased to keep the city, the watchman wakes but in vain (Psa 127.1). You have taught me by experience, what little significance human strength and industry are, by leaving me for a while destitute of your help, and bringing my supposed abilities to the proof. This was not for your better information, who knew me perfectly before, but in order to create in me right notices of myself; and to abate that unjust esteem which I entertained for qualifications not yet understood.â (Augustine. Meditations).
Rev 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.â
2Cor 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.â ......... 6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight) 8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.â
GOD states:- Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind,"
Coercing people to burn in hell is not a very nice thing to do. BUT apparently it is the 'hallmark' of evil and demonic people and companies.
