The Next Crusade

Put aside any narcissistic dreams of Christian pacifism. If we are going to be worth anything to the next generation, we need to rise up.


Christian Militias On The Rise; A New Crusade Coming

By Theodore Shoebat

…Not a campus crusade, but a true crusade, in which the saints carry their cross to fight with the forces of darkness.

Christians in the Middle East have for a long time been accustomed to staying away from the fray with Muslims. This has come as a result of both comfort and suppression, but the persecution against the saints has reached an intensity almost unheard of in our times, and the apex of this oppression is at hand.

With this diabolical torment and violence becoming more fierce and cruel, Christians are now being confronted with the choice to fight or die. Many of the saints have taken up their cross and decided that to die is to live, and as Christ picked up the Holy Cross to defeat the devil, these true crusaders have picked up guns to vanquish the Muslim devils who seek their destruction.

The vicious murderous behavior of muhammad’s followers has made the next crusade inevitable. Combined with the weakness of political leaders in Europe and the Americas, the only answer left is an international Christian militia. 

Let me change that to include another solution: The Lord. Let us all cast off anything that holds us back, get right with God, pray for forgiveness, and seek to do His will. Perhaps we may yet avoid a crusade. 

But it is time to weapon up, both militarily and spiritually. It is time for the new Minute Man. 

The angelic face of Jesus as a 12-year-old boy

The scientific unit of the police force in Rome, Italy, used technology that’s normally used to age an individual, to generate the angelic face of what the man in the Shroud of Turin would look like as a 12-year-old boy.

Jesus at 12

Monica Cantilero reports for Christian Times, April 30, 2015, that to commemorate two-month exhibition of the Shroud of Turin, believed by Christians to be Jesus Christ’s burial cloth, Italian police reversed the technology they use to age drawings of Mafia bosses (to identify them after decades on the run) on the image of the man imprinted into the Shroud to re-create the “angelic” face of a 12-year-old Jesus.

Note: The Shroud image is not painted on the cloth, but infused into the individual fibers of the linen cloth. There are many good books on the Shroud, one of which is my friend Robert K. Wilcox‘s The Truth About the Shroud of Turin.

The scientific unit of Rome’s police force was prompted to create the image upon the suggestion of television news reporters who were doing a special news program about Jesus.

Elena Guarnieri, the host of the television news special, said people have always wondered how Jesus looked like as a boy. “If that is the face on the shroud, then this is the face of Jesus as a child,” she said.

To create the image of the young Jesus, the police subtracted years from the man’s face imprinted on the Shroud of Turin and removed his beard. They also colored his hair blonde and lightened his complexion.

reverse aging of Shroud of Turin face

The New York Times derisively described the generated image:

“The angelic face is reminiscent of the prayer cards sold in Vatican souvenir shops and of the New Age portraits displayed at Venice Beach. The image shows a 12-year-old boy with fair, smooth skin, glassy blue eyes, fleshy lips and waves of dirty blond hair streaked with just enough purple and pink to suggest a sprinkling of cosmic dust.”

Christians believe that the Shroud of Turin, a linen cloth imprinted with the image of a man’s face and wounded body, was the cloth used to wrap the body of Jesus during his burial. But after using carbon-14 dating tests in 1988, a group of scientists ruled that it was a medieval forgery since the cloth was dated between 1260 and 1390.

Note: It was later determined that the scientists had used a piece from the edge of the Shroud, which had been stitched onto the original cloth to repair damages inflicted by a fire in the 13th century, which would explain the carbon-14 dating result.

Paul Damon, a geoscientist who was on the team that held a carbon-14 dating test on the Shroud in 1998, reacted negatively to the police recreation of Jesus’ face, saying it’s a “malarkey,” adding: “The boy would not be blond.”

Note: Actually, many dark-haired Mediterraneans do have blonde hair in their childhood.

The Vatican has not commented yet on the image of the boy created from the imprint on the Shroud.

The exhibition of the Shroud, which started last week and will last until June 24, has been authorized by Pope Francis to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of St. John Bosco, a priest from Turin who lived in the 19th century and pioneered vocational education.

Sunday Devotional: The Vine Grower

FOTM’s Sunday Devotionals are usually about God’s love and grace. Today’s is a sober reminder that we must choose, and the consequence of an obdurate rejection of Him.

John 15:1-8

Jesus said to his disciples:
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower.
He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit,
and every one that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit.
You are already pruned because of the word that I spoke to you.
Remain in me, as I remain in you.
Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own
unless it remains on the vine,
so neither can you unless you remain in me.
I am the vine, you are the branches.
Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit,
because without me you can do nothing.
Anyone who does not remain in me
will be thrown out like a branch and wither;
people will gather them and throw them into a fire
and they will be burned.
If you remain in me and my words remain in you,
ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.
By this is my Father glorified,
that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.”

 

fruitful vs. withered grapevine

Did you know that Jesus preached more about Hell than Heaven?

From Patheos:

Jesus describes hell as a reality (see here for all the biblical references to hell) and He spoke on hell three times as much as He ever did on heaven, thereby signifying the importance of believing in such a place.  Hell is like a fiery furnace and there will be weeping (with anger and/or eternal regret) and gnashing of teeth (in anger and/or in pain).  This weeping and gnashing of teeth is mentioned twice so as to emphasize the reality of hell.

Jesus also said it is a place not where “the” worm never dies but a place where “their” worm does not die.  The fact is that it is their worm which means that it is their own personal gnawing of their conscience for their lifetime of rejecting Christ and this worm never dies, just like the Gehenna fire, which was a trash dump outside the walls of Jerusalem.  That was a place where trash was continually dumped and maggots or worms never died off because there was always something thrown onto it so the worms or maggots had a constant supply of food.

And yet a 2009 survey by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found that only 59% of Americans believed in hell, compared with 74% who believed in heaven. That same year, a Barna poll found that 6 out of 10 American Christians did not believe that Satan is real.

Georgia teacher forced to retire for telling students Obama is not a Christian

A middle school teacher in Dublin, Georgia, was removed from the classroom and forced into retirement because she told her students that Barack Obama is not a Christian.

On April 28, 2015, Dublin Schools Superintendent Chuck Ledbetter announced the retirement of Nancy Perry, while simultaneously apologizing to students and parents for Perry’s actions. He said:

“It is not the place of teachers to attempt to persuade students about religious or political beliefs. In doing so, the teacher was wrong and that has been communicated to her… Just as importantly, we are communicating this message to all staff of the school district.”

In March, Nancy Perry, a veteran teacher at Dublin Middle School, told her students that Obama is not a Christian and that anyone who had voted for him was not a Christian either.

A 12-year-old black boy in Perry’s class told his father, Jimmie Scott, who complained to the school board. Paraphrasing Perry’s alleged comments, Scott told WMAZ that Perry told her students, “If your parents voted for Obama, they’re evil and I don’t see how your parents could vote for someone that’s Muslim.”

Nancy Perry, Jimmie Scott, Chuck Ledbetter

Perry denies ever having made the comments and repeated the denial to a television station.

A Dublin County School Board meeting was set up to address the complaints, during which what Perry allegedly said to her students was read out loud in a complaint. The letter was then posted to the Laurens County GA Democratic Party’s Facebook page:

The teacher made several negative comments about the President, including that he is not a Christian as he claims to be. She said that any parent who supports him is not a Christian. She challenged her students to prove their Christianity.

Perry was joined at the meeting by her husband Bill Perry, who is a school board member and a former radio show host in Dublin, where his Saturday morning show touched on topics like same-sex marriage and religion. Parents saw his presence as a form of intimidation.

13WMAZ reported that Jimmie Scott said that in their meeting with Bill Perry they never discussed his wife’s “inflammatory comments made to children,” but instead they showed Scott “propaganda from the Internet.” “She [Nancy Perry] showed it to me and said, ‘See, Obama is a baby killer. He aborts babies at nine months old as they’re coming through the birth canal,’” said Scott.

A local chapter of the NAACP then stepped in and called for the resignation of Perry, along with her husband Bill, who is a long standing member of the Dublin County Board of Education. NAACP officials accused Bill Perry of “micromanaging” the schools and threatened to involve the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, an accrediting agency.

Superintendent Ledbetter said he will work closely with the Dublin Board of Education to schedule training sessions for the district’s professional staff, “ensuring that the administration, from the central office to the principal of each school, clearly and consistently communicate to teachers our expectations. We expect these subjects to become a regular part of our annual training of staff. We also intend to plan for greater emphasis within the curriculum on the contributions, history, and culture of diverse people groups.”

Ledbetter has ordered all school principals to call his office immediately when a school board member tries to get involved in day-to-day school activities. He said, “An individual board member should not participate in a parent/teacher or parent/principal conference nor should an individual board member in any way attempt to involve himself in a parental concern or a personnel matter at the school level. Again, this has been communicated directly to the board member by the board of education and made clear to the principals in our schools that this is not to be allowed. As regrettable as this incident is, we believe that we can build from it to make an even better school system for all of our children. We will continue to work to build our relationships with every student and with every family.”

Sources: Atlantic Journal-Constitution, IJReview, Daily Mail

Someone should ask Jimmie Scott how a Christian could three-times voted for infanticide, by voting against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002 – a federal law, signed by President George W. Bush, which extends legal protection to an infant born alive after a failed attempt at induced abortion. Obama did just that when he was Illinois state senator.

Obama means to overturn both the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act and the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. If the latter were overturned, what will happen to babies born alive after a failed abortion? They will be left alone in a room, to slowly die from starvation and neglect.

Then there’s the fact that black babies are disproportionately aborted in the United States at a rate of 871 a day.

That’s how much of a “Christian” that Barack Obama is. /sarc

Thought-provoking Thought of the Day

importance of gratitude

H/t FOTM’s josephbc69

Research shows that gratitude, not money, is the key to being happy. Happy people tend to:

  • express gratitude on a regular basis;
  • practice being optimistic;
  • engage in frequent acts of kindness;
  • savor joyful events; and
  • practice forgiveness.

Just remember: Whatever we have — our body and mind, talents and skills, family and friends, and our very life itself — are all wholly and entirely gratuitous (unearned) gifts from the Creator.

“Brothers and sisters: Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.” -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Mother Sees Satanic Messages on Children’s Television

The following is reblogged from Henry Makow’s site:

A Texas mother’s shocking discovery: Children’s
cartoons are being used to degrade her children
and indoctrinate them on issues like gender.

by LS
(henrymakow.com)

Hello Henry. I’ve been following your site for quite some time now and I’ve learned a lot from your writings. One of the best things I’ve learned from you is that mainstream entertainment is satanic and made to corrupt the masses.

Well, I’ve been noticing that many of the children’s television programs are getting worse and worse as time goes on. These shows are just getting nasty, and they are blatant with the filth they are putting out. I watch these shows with my kids and the filth that I see is shocking. Here are a few examples of the trash that these shows put out for the masses. Remember that these shows are geared towards CHILDREN!

First there is the Nickelodeon television show Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn. One of the episodes is titled “Poo Dunnit”, a wordplay on the phrase “Who Dunnit”. That entire episode is about the kids and their parents trying to find out which one of them took a sh!t in one of the house toilets and didn’t flush. Yes, the entire episode revolved around a clump of sh!t in a toilet. The foul-mouthed potty humor and the talks about sh!t in this episode were so disgusting.

The word “poop” was even used three times in one sentence by one of the child characters. At one point in the episode, the children were actually examining the piece of sh!t in the toilet and one of them stated it looked like a flamingo. In your past writings you stated that the illuminati entertainment has an obsession with feces and bodily functions like sh!tting. Well, this entire episode was one big tribute to that sick obsession.

Then there is the Cartoon Network show Adventure Time. This show is already full of questionable material, but here I’ll only focus on two bits that I’ve noticed.

The first is a quote from one of characters. In one of the more recent episodes titled “Friends Forever”, a character stated that, “Well, one isn’t purely defined by their sex or gender. I’ve yet to find out who I really am…”

This is exactly the same propaganda that is spouted by illuminati feminist and homosexual groups to encourage gender confusion and the destruction of male and female. Then there is yet another quote from a character in a different episode titled “All the Little People”.

The character, who is a crafty magician, says “Do what thou swill be the whole piece of law”.

This is a blatant reference to the notable quote of Satanist Aleister Crowley: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law”. I’m sure I don’t need to explain any further why this is horribly wrong.

These are just the things that I’ve picked up on while watching these children’s shows with my kids, I’m sure there’s a lot more out there. Mainstream entertainment is sick and corrupt. I’m glad I’ve found your site so that I can see what is really happening to the world. Thanks.

Scary documentary from the Ukraine on American cartoons. It starts out with subtitles but a few minutes in there is an English narrator.

First Comment by Anonymous:

I just watched 5 minutes of the show in question, R.N.D.D., for the first time ever. Here’s what I saw: The kids are in school, building a white volcano for science class. The volcano inadvertently erupts gobs and gobs of white foam all over the kids, who make a game of it, throwing and smearing it on one another. In the background throughout the scene, there are ‘butterflies’ hanging on the wall. Their teacher, while reprimanding the kids, makes a veiled ‘sign of Baphomet’ with one hand, and the girl (Dawn), is wearing a t-shirt with a picture of a ‘cat’ that’s got some kind of device over the top of its head that’s covered in a two-tone masonic print. If you’re unfamiliar with these motifs, explanations can be found online easily enough. More jarring than anything was the way these kids act like the “adults” I remember from sitcoms. Their manner is utterly unnatural.

On a side note, I can only guess that the reference in the “Poo” episode to it looking like a flamingo is a reference to the John Waters film ‘Pink Flamingoes’ – a barage of filth that culminates with a character named “Divine” actually consuming fecal matter in the process of filming.

Big ups to the mother who has the good sense to be aware of what’s happening in her child’s life. Here’s my point: It doesn’t matter what you watch; you will find PROGRAMING, in almost, EVERY SHOT. For what its worth, I recommend listening to what Alan Watt, (not alan Watt[s]), has to say on the matter. His broadcasts are on youtube. In one, he mentions how a friend, who’d worked for one of those 3-letter organizations, once advised him: NEVER WATCH THE TELEVISION.

Where’s the crux of the problem? It’s in the fact that the parents are so programmed themselves, they just don’t want to hear about it. Most prefer to remain comfortable watching their own favored propaganda, while telling themselves that people like yours truly are just grasping at straws. Meanwhile their children are being indoctrinated to service pedophiles.

Comments for “Mother Sees Satanic Messages on Children’s TV”

Dan said (April 27, 2015):

I threw out television in May 2008. It’s an addiction. Flat screen TVs have become ubiquitous everywhere you go. Waiting rooms, restaurants, even on buses now. Even on people’s phones.

Anyone with children has a duty to protect them from exposure to this insidious mind control programming and behavior conditioning. Television has no redeeming qualities at all. It’s an instrument of destruction pure and simple. I guarantee anyone that if you get the god damn thing out of your house, you will recover from the withdrawal very quickly. So will your children.

Nothing destroys any culture more thoroughly than television.
Al Thompson said (April 26, 2015):

Most of the media is satanic and amoral. Without a proper moral structure, no one can live a secure and happy life. The intent of these cartoons is to corrupt the children just as the public schools do. This should be a good reason to cut the cable and do without TV. All of this garbage works to destroy the minds of those who watch it. I see no point in continuing paying for material that will corrupt the viewer’s mind. Until people start developing a higher moral standard, all of this will get worse.

I think it is best to stop worrying about what other people do and concentrate on yourself and your family. The reason is that you can’t control what other people do but you can control yourself. Make sure your own moral standards are in line with the natural law and try to stay within it. Separate your mind from the “new world order” as it is too destructive to be of any value to anyone.

The natural order is easier to understand without a lot of religious doctrines which may or may not be true. Those commandments that reside within the natural order are the ones that have value. These commandments can be proven by just a little bit of thought and right reason. It’s not difficult; religion makes it difficult in my opinion. The God who created everyone established the natural foundation for all of mankind. It is the same for everyone.

Twisting the minds of little children is what the media is all about, especially with the abomination of Bruce Jenner. Again, the true intent here is to destroy the minds of the children by getting them to question their gender. This is as stupid and evil as anyone can get. Make the media companies pay for their perversion. Cut the cable and spend more time outside and let the children play.

The Write Stuff – Character Names, Titles, and the Look of Your Page

The Write Stuff

For reasons that I’ve never been able to fathom, many writers love to give their characters unusual or ridiculous sounding names. Writers who do this think they’re being cute. To me, it’s just plain stupid. It’s as if they think the character’s name will signify the personality traits they are unable to communicate through action and dialogue.

Seriously, how many people in your life do you know who are named Maverick, Anastasia, Tyler, Dirk, Gordy, Mercedes, Montana, Travis, Cody, Gordon, etc.? Whenever I encounter one of these names in a book, I’m immediately taken out of the story and reminded that the author is trying to be cute. Don’t do that to your readers. Give your readers interesting, but realistic names. (My apologies to anyone who actually has one of these names. They’re fine names, and I do know a girl named Montana, but they sound phony when they appear in a story or novel.)

Your characters’ names should be suited to their type. Hank, Butch, and Biff are not the best names for a cerebral character, in the same way that Sidney, Eugene, or Eggbert sound awkward for an action hero.

Begin each of your characters’ names with a different letter and sound. Don’t have Jane and John, or Betty and Bob, in the same story. It’s confusing to your readers. Make each character’s name distinct.

Keep your character names consistent throughout the book. I’m reading a novel now with a lead character named Augustus, and the author spends half of his time calling him Augustus and the other half calling him Gus. Again, it’s very confusing.

Even more important than the names of your characters is the title of your book. Titles can make or break a book, and are often the only reason a potential reader will pull a book off a shelf. Did you see last year’s Academy Awards? One of the reasons viewership was so low was because of the titles of the nominated films. Whiplash: It sounds like a movie about a car accident. Birdman: Sounds like a lame superhero I’ve never heard of or a remake of The Birdman of Alcatraz. Selma: The title was as boring as the movie. Selma, Alabama would have been better.

Your title should accomplish two things. First, it should invoke a sense of curiosity in the reader, and second, it should convey a sense of the book’s tone. A mystery title should convey a sense of mystery. The Maltese Falcon is a good example. Falcons are mysterious by nature and suggest a predatory bird. The word “Maltese” adds to the mystery. Another good example is the title Jagged Edge. It not only conveys mystery, but also a sense of danger. Fatal Attraction is a lousy movie, but a wonderful title for the type of movie it is. The same with Dangerous Liasons.

If your novel is a comedy, then insert some humor in your title. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a whimsical title, perfect for a comedy, and it creates curiosity. It’s a rare case where using a cute character name works.

If your novel features a strong central character, then that character’s name can make a suitable title: Rocky, Hud, Johnny Tremain, Tarzan, Elmer Gantry, etc.

I know from personal experience how important titles can be. I once wrote a mediocre script with a terrific title. The movie never got made, but I optioned the script half-a-dozen times based almost entirely on the strength of the title.

The best way to pick your book’s title is to make a list of fifty or more possibilities, whittle it down to about twenty choices, then ask others which title they most prefer. Ordinarily, it’s not a good idea to take writing advice from your friends and acquaintances, but with titles the public is generally right.

Have you ever opened a book or article to find a series of long, unbroken paragraphs? I don’t know about you, but just looking at a page like that makes me tired. That kind of writing is an insult to your readers and a major reason why so few Americans read books. You can remedy that by writing short paragraphs with lots of dialogue and lots of white space on the page. Readers tend to skim or skip long paragraphs. They NEVER skip dialogue.

How are you coming along with your novel?
