As the country struggles to come to grip with the illegal alien invasion, which threatens our economy, our collective health and out national sovereignty, we are unable to look to our churches to provide the leadership needed in this time of crisis. I have previously documented how several of the recent unscreened illegal aliens have very serious illnesses, some of which have been caught by the Border Patrol, and nothing is being done except for the federal government’s threatening the whistleblowers with prison. I have also documented how some of the illegal immigrants are members of MS-13 who have decided ties to the Mexican drug cartels and ultimately to the most dangerous terrorist organizations on the face of the earth. Instead of heeding these well documented warnings, many of our churches are not condemning the evil. Instead, they are embracing the evil.
Most of the disciples of Jesus Christ were martyred for their uncompromising views towards corrupt civilian authority, except for John, who died of extreme old age and Judas, who committed suicide after betraying Jesus. Many of Jesus’ followers met an untimely end. For example, Peter was crucified, head downward, during the persecution of Nero. James, was thrown from a pinnacle of the Temple, and then beaten to death with a club. Thomas, the doubter, was run through the body with a lance at Coromandel, in the East Indies. Yet, today, most of our 501-C-3 tax exempt churches have embraced the suicidal course of Judas as they have made a deal with the devil by espousing government doctrine even when it violates the word of God.
In opposition to the early founders of the church and in opposition to the teachings of Jesus Christ, today’s church bends over in the face of evil. It acquiesces to the evil and drags its followers to the gates of hell by demanding compliance to the illegitimate authority and decidedly non-Christian forces which are subjugating this country. Today’s pastors are doing so under the guise of Romans 13.
Two San Bernardino-area churches; Fontana’s St. Josephs Catholic Church and St. Catherine of Siena Parish in Rialto. These churches have provided travel cash and bus tickets to recent illegal immigrants as they are permanently embedded into the mainstream of our country. Many of these immigrants come from countries who have virulent outbreaks of very serious diseases and viruses for which the average American has no immunity. Yet, the Catholic Diocese of San Bernardino spokesman John Andrews told NBC Los Angeles that we will serve these people for as long as need to (even when it threatens the existing population). Why don’t these churches just hand out blankets on the street corners laced with small pox?
First, I would like to point out to these “benevolent” churches that we have homeless Vietnam veterans on seemingly every street corner begging for their next meal. Where is their compassion for these people? Charity begins at home and these two churches are examples on why I do cannot find a church worthy of trusting my soul to. If you want to feed today’s illegal immigrants, that is a noble cause. However, to pay to embed them in our society with no health screening or naturalization period is the height of social irresponsibility.
Today’s churches have been bought off by embracing a false interpretation of Romans 13. IF these churches care so much for these recent immigrants, then pay for health screening physicals before transporting them into the heartland of country and exposing the rest of us to some very serious health conditions. However, this will not happen, because the church has been successfully politicized and taken over.

Pastor Chuck Baldwin is not someone who is confused about what Jesus Christ said about defending ourselves:
But perhaps the verse of Scripture that my slightly confused brethren quoted most in their attempt to rebuke me was Matthew 26:52, “Then said Jesus unto him [Simon Peter], Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.” (KJV) This, they said, proves that Christians have no right to keep and bear arms if the government said it was illegal to do so. However, with all due respect, this interpretation is opposed to the overwhelming evidence of Scripture to the contrary.
In the first place, consider what Jesus said just a few moments before making this statement. Just before arriving in the Garden of Gethsemane (where the statement was made to Peter to “put up thy sword”), Jesus told his disciples, “But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.” (Luke 22:36 KJV)
After hearing Jesus’ command, the disciples replied, “Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.” (Luke 22:38 KJV)
Notice that Jesus plainly and emphatically told Simon Peter and the others to arm themselves. So emphatic was Jesus’ command that He told them if they could not afford to purchase a sword they were instructed to sell their clothes if necessary and buy one.
After hearing Jesus’ command to arm themselves, the disciples noted that already two of the disciples were carrying arms. Jesus’ response, “It is enough,” did not mean that only two swords (out of eleven men–Judas Iscariot had already left to betray Christ) was sufficient, for He had plainly commanded EACH MAN to arm himself. He was simply acknowledging that they clearly understood what He had just told them.
Ladies and gentlemen, the First Century Roman sword was the most efficient and lethal personal defense weapon in the world at the time. It is no hyperbole or injustice to language to say that the Roman sword was the First Century equivalent to a modern AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. It was designed to kill swiftly and efficiently. And Jesus commanded His disciples to buy and carry one!"
That was a very interesting & informative article cm miller. Liberals like to use religion to twist away our Liberty. A big reason the Catholic Church in the U.S. is such a supporter of Amnesty after Amnesty is because many Hispanics are Catholic and they want more members.
that's the tall and short of it. A few years ago the polls were indicating, Catholics were losing more members than any other religion in the U.S. I've always kind of wondered who else was behind the brokering/decision to have the new Pope be from South America - just as this crisis of theirs was becoming so desperate. Three of the largest Catholic Churches in SF had been shut down due to lack of funds - beautiful ones; they had no funding (paying off the sex scandals) to keep them up to code. Immediately, this new wave of illegals came over - with the Federal monies given to churches (as with schools) per members, last time out one of them was being renovated. Now, if the Pope was still from a European country, this may not have been so easily accomplished. In fact, prior smaller crisis' were not as well received by the Vatican - instead monies were provided for those countries.
Strange bedfellows are our Prez and the Pope. Certain neither really likes the other, but they use each other to remain powerful... both using children to accomplish their dirty work. Starting to sound like the times prior to Joan of Arc.
Not so strange when you read this...
For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
(Rev 18:3-9 KJV)
Not only that but the Lord told Peter to put away his sword... NOT throw it away!
My church is not. We are shooters and are preparing for the upcoming exciting times.
Hi Steve, do you have a plan, that can help our local Churches, and communities? Thanks for your
service. My Husband is a Vietnam Vet. We see alot of discussion, but not any practical plans.
Time is short, and we need The LORD'S help, and each other. bo has his plan, it's time We The
People, have ours.
Carol, the churches can turn in their 501c3 status. That would allow them the full use of the Gospel truth.
There are many active and retired military in my church. It is also a church that was bold enough to leave the old denomination and form a new one after opposing for decades and finally being overcome by the liberals. Thank you God for church leaders who are willing to stand up for principles.
Fortunately these won't take jobs from American citizens. They will be taught and encouraged to depend on the federal (debt based) larder.
This illustration in many ways defines Pope Bendict XVI's encyclical, "Caritas in veritate." He was dealing with the challenges of a one world government vs. a global economy. I interpreted the global economy part (right side) as his philosophical understanding of what makes America work - for the last 100 years in spite of the death cult called "progressivism." But who reads encyclicals anyway? Not enough of my fellow Catholics.
Be care 'not neglecting to meet together' (Hebrews 10:25)...the (true) body of Christ should gather like never before for such a time as this.
Cynthia, with whom are we to gather together? Here is where righteous judgment should be applied. You will know the tree by the fruit.
