Crisis in the Church, II

Crisis in the Church!

Dear Friends, 

Jim Cabaniss, President of American Veterans in Domestic Defense (AVIDD), sent me one of the most startling e-mails recently, with three of the most thought-provoking questions that I have ever had anyone ask that I would like to share with you.

Following is Jim’s statement. 

Pastor Dixon,

 

I am deeply concerned with the obvious erosion of the Christian Church in America.  One does not have to be a Rocket scientist to notice that the Lord’s Church is experiencing a diminishing image even among the Christian community. 

 

The news media, Hollywood, the pornography industry, the abortion – Planned Parenthood effort, the “Gay” and Lesbian agenda, the ACLU and certain other organizations are openly showing their intent to destroy the influence of the churches in our society. Even our government is now declaring that there is no God. For example:

In the final minutes of Former Chief Justice Roy Moore's encounter with the Alabama’s Court Of The Judiciary on Nov. 12, 2003, Attorney General Bill Pryor questioned Judge Moore under oath.

Following is an exact exchange of Judge Moore’s Powerful witness. The Attorney General asked, "And your understanding is that the Federal Court ordered that you could not acknowledge God; isn’t that right?” Judge Moore said, “Yes.” Pryor continued, “And if you resume your duties as Chief Justice after this proceeding, you will continue to acknowledge God as you have testified that you would today?” Judge Moore, “That’s right.” Pryor, “No matter what any other official says?” Judge Moore replied “Absolutely.” On the basis of that testimony the Alabama Court of the Judiciary removed Chief Justice Roy Moore from office and stripped him of his reputation. Then they removed the Ten Commandments Monument from the Alabama Supreme Court Building.

 

It is becoming clear that our Government has taken the position that there is no God, which also means, that to the government, there is no Jesus Christ either, and in the end it will mean no church in America as we have known it.

 

Pastor Dixon, this is shocking to my family and me.  I personally believe that the Bible believing and teaching Christian Church is the most important establishment of God in the history of the world.  Please help me to understand what is going on in our Churches.  Please consider the answer to the following questions:

1)    What is the problem?

2)    What is causing the problem?

3)    What is the solution to the problem?

 

Jim Cabaniss

I have my ideas as to what the answers to these questions are, and after talking to Jim, so does he. But we would like to hear from you; and not just preachers, but folks from all walks of life. In fact, feel free to forward these questions to your lists to allow others to participate.

The cut off date for your participation is August 15. Keep your answers as concise as possible. Don't just say "SIN,” be specific; we all know that already.

The best answers, with your name, will be published on the editorial page of Freedom’s Phoenix and in The Trumpet Newsletter.
 
If you would like to received the Trumpet, please notify me at drgregdixon@earthlink.net.

1) What is the problem?

The problem is that there is **QQ**no knowledge of God in the land.**QQ** How did it happen - because at one point in time - several hundred years ago - there was **QQ**knowledge of God**QQ** and it is what made America great - and then almost as quickly as it was here - it was gone. The answer is simple - yet complex.

In 1789, the people on this continent officially allowed their **QQ**leaders**QQ** to declare that God was dead and they would no longer have King Jesus to reign over them. They had decided to have a **QQ**king**QQ** reign over them like all the other nations (see I Samuel 8 for the exact same result seen in other people who had done the exact same thing). They had forsaken the God of their fathers (the pilgrims) and had gone after other **QQ**gods.**QQ**

The U.S. CONstitution boldy and DEFIANTLY screams - THIS CONstitution and OUR LAWS, AND OUR TREATIES - shall be the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND.

Would you please think about this statement? In all reality, this is total defiance and rebellion to Almighty God. This is raising the fist in the face of God and proclaiming that man**Q**s ways are higher than God**Q**s ways. OUR LAWS - not Your Laws - OUR TREATIES - not Yours - OUR WORDS - not Yours - SHALL BE THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND. This is Orwellian. The **QQ**preachers**QQ** say what a great thing this is - yet the clear truth is that it is the exact OPPOSITE of what is great and true.

So-called **QQ**preachers**QQ** especially those in the **QQ**patriot movement**QQ** have been some of the biggest promoters of this heresy and are much like the High Priests of Jesus**Q** day who proclaimed **QQ**we have no king but Caesar.**QQ** They have continually made people like George Washington, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, etc., into pillars of righteousness and followers of Christ even though the clear history of their lives demonstrates otherwise. These men were Freemasons, they were Illuminists (whether officially or not - the proof is in the pudding). We all have heard it and seen it shown how the architecture in Washington, DC and the design of the city, etc., is ALL Satanically derived. We**Q**ve all been told of what defenders of freedom people like Geo. Washington were - yet - when history such as what he did in quashing the **QQ**whiskey rebellion**QQ** is discussed, it is dismissed as folly. (He used the **QQ**Whiskey Rebellion**QQ** to quash his competition in the whiskey business.)

When the Treaty of Tripoli is brought into the discussion, it too, is dismissed as if it never happened or was somehow slipped in by while **QQ**good men**QQ** were not watching. How ridiculous. The Treaty was read before the ENTIRE Congress INCLUDING the **QQ**president**QQ** who had no problem whatsoever signing the document that clearly states THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT IS NOT IN ANY SENSE FOUNDED ON THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION.

Yet, **QQ**patriots**QQ** and **QQ**patriot preachers**QQ** still propagate the lie that the CONstitution and the **QQ**government**QQ** it created was ordained by God Himself - that the CON was inspired of God as if it is on the same plane as the Scriptures.

My guess is that while the **QQ**patriots**QQ** and the **QQ**patriot preachers**QQ** still hold to and propagate this CON - they themselves after all these years - have still not read the document.

Surely you have you heard of a man named Patrick Henry. Immediately you will say yes, he**Q**s the one who said **QQ**Give me liberty or give me death.**QQ** Of course. But are you aware of these other statements made by Patrick Henry?

**QQ**Had these principles been adhered to, we should not have been brought to this alarming transition, from a confederacy to a consolidated government. We have no detail of these great considerations, which, in my opinion, ought to have abounded before we should recur to a government of this kind. Here is a resolution as radical as that which separated us from Great Britain. It is radical in this transition; our rights and privileges are endangered, and the sovereignty of the states will be relinquished: and cannot we plainly see that this is actually the case?**QQ**

Patrick Henry warned vehemently AGAINST ratifying the U.S. CONstitution. He said such a CONsolidation would destroy states**Q** rights, it would take the guns out of the hands of the people, it would bring about unrestrained taxation and oppression, it would create an empire that could not be controlled, it would weaken the trial by jury, it would destroy the middle class and impoverish the masses, it would allow wicked rulers to go unpunished because there are no significant checks and balances in the CON, it would eliminate the militia and create a standing army that could not be controlled, it would kill the American spirit, it would allow **QQ**federal sheriff(s) may commit what oppression, make what distresses, he pleases, and ruin you with impunity; for how are you to tie his hands? Have you any sufficiently decided means of preventing him from sucking your blood by speculations, commissions, and fees?**QQ**, he goes on to say that the **QQ**president**QQ** could easily transform to a monarchy, the Senate would sacrifice your rights for a very small minority, etc., etc., etc. To read the entire speech, please go to http://www.wfu.edu/%7Ezulick/340/henry.html

Today, things that should be called wrong are called right. What is unlawful is called legal. What is called lawful is called illegal. IT**Q**S ALL BACKWARDS. While the **QQ**patriots**QQ** and the **QQ**patriot preachers**QQ** speak glowingly about the CON - reciting words from the Federalist Papers - the TRUTH is actually found in the ANTI-FEDERALIST Papers. But have we read those documents? I have my doubts, just as I have my doubts as to whether the **QQ**patriots**QQ** and the **QQ**patriot preachers**QQ** have read the CON.

Today, we see the FRUIT from the tree planted in 1789. The fruit is bad because the TREE WAS BAD. Jesus said a good tree CANNOT bring forth corrupt fruit. By holding onto the CON and forcing our children and our grandchildren to perpetuate the CON - we MAKE JESUS A LIAR.

To sum up the problem, the followers of Christ have bought the CON. We**Q**ve traded King Jesus for a **QQ**king**QQ** like all the other nations. The salt has lost its savor. Jesus is the ONLY source of true freedom and liberty and we traded His Kingdship away for a CON. We have followed the steps of our fathers in keeping the CON going. We have become conformists, co-conspirators in a deception that has hidden the true kingdom of Christ for several hundred years.

2) What is causing the problem?
This question seems a little redundant, doesn**Q**t it?

3) What is the solution to the problem?
II Corinthians 6:14-18: Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

The so-called **QQ**christians**QQ** in the U.S. today - including the **QQ**patriot christians**QQ** and the so-called **QQ**patriot preachers**QQ** are some of the most flag waving, proud U.S. **QQ**citizens**QQ** on the continent today.

I marvel to figure out exactly how this has come to pass - even with the **QQ**preachers**QQ** demanding it - I would think that thinking people would be able to see through the CON of the CON and the lies of the **QQ**preachers.**QQ** But it doesn**Q**t seem to be happening.

The book of Hebrews is clear that the follower of Christ is to be a **QQ**stranger and a pilgrim on this earth, looking for another city, a better country wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God.**QQ** You who are proud UNITED States **QQ**citizens**QQ** - how does it feel to be UNITED with the sodomites? Oh, you don**Q**t live in California or Massachusetts? It doesn**Q**t matter - because you are a UNITED States citizen!!! You say you are not a war-mongerer, a pornographer, an abortionist, etc.? BUT YOU ARE. You are a **QQ**citizen**QQ** of the UNITED states of America. You ARE UNITED with the sodomite, the warmonger, the abortionist. You are just as guilty as they because you VOLUNTARILY accept **QQ**citizenship**QQ** with the UNITED States of America.

Are you sick of it yet? Are you getting mad at the messenger? Are you still waving the flag and pledging **QQ**allegiance**QQ** - claiming that you have NO OTHER SOVEREIGN in your life (that is what the **QQ**pledge**QQ** is, in case you didn**Q**t know)?
WE ALL HAVE A CHOICE AS TO WHOSE GOVERNMENT WE WILL BE GOVERNED BY. Just because you **QQ**live**QQ** on this continent - does not mean that you have to be a U.S. **QQ**citizen.**QQ** You can do as the real Founding Fathers of Christianity did -

Hebrews 11:23-27: By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king**Q**s commandment. By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh**Q**s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

As for me and my family, we refuse to be called the **QQ**king**Q**s sons.**QQ** We refuse to be UNITED **QQ**citizens**QQ** of the world. When God**Q**s people turn their back on the CON and come back to King Jesus and His Government, we will see the power of God in ways that we have never seen in our lives. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but they are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations AND EVERY high thing that exalts itself above the knowledge of God. This what is promised to those who are obedient to the Word and to the Kingdom of Christ and Come Out from among them and be separate.
