WHITE HORSE

Mitt Romney plans to deliver a major speech on the state of the 2016 race for the White House Thursday, amid rising panic among some Republican leaders that Donald Trump may be cruising to the nomination. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee will speak at 11:30 a.m. ET.

I wrote this in 2014…

 WHITE HORSE

What if Mitt Romney were to come in, riding as if on a white horse, with a Save the Constitution Platform for the 2016 Presidential election? What if the Illuminati, the Bilderbergers and the Mormon Church got behind him with all of their money and power? What if every Right Wing, pro America group in America signed up? What if the whole purpose of Obama is to make that possible? What if he went on to rule the world from Washington DC?

There is, in the Mormon Church, a “White Horse Prophecy”. This prophecy speaks of the day when the Constitution is in great peril and a Mormon on a White Horse rides in to save the Constitution, the Nation and the World.

Mitt Romney’s Mormon friends tagged him as being that rider on a white horse, while he was in college. They still believe that.

Mormons teach that Jehovah is a man, in a man’s body. They say that He ascended to his position because he was a good Mormon on another planet. Jesus and Lucifer are brothers… Lucifer became the Devil because Jesus and he each put up plans for the salvation of mankind… Jesus won, Lucifer lost and got mad.

Mormons believe that good Mormons get to be God of their own planet.

Mormons teach that Jehovah traveled to earth in a physical body, deflowered a fourteen-year-old virgin named Mary and became the father of Jesus…

Mormons are not Christian. This is ancient pagan religion and nothing more.

Unfortunately, most Christians don’t have a clue. Most God fearing, patriotic Americans would vote for Mitt Romney, not understanding that Mitt, his church and his friends all believe he is destined to rule the world and create a New World Order.

Is it possible that Antichrist come in on a white horse, wearing a white hat and waving the American Flag? Could it be that the Antichrist is a Right Wing Cowboy who looks more like John Wayne than Bill Bojangles Robinson?

THEOLOGICAL OPINION

For The Serious Students Among Us…

There are three major and several minor “SYSTEMS” that form “SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY”.

  1. Covenantal Theology
  2. Dispensational Theology
  3. New Covenantal Theology

When one speaks of systematic theology, it is helpful to ask which “system” he is referring to. The exact same Scripture passage, run through the different systems will end up with very different interpretations. The system of theology used controls the interpretation. If you are interested in the different systems, you should look them up. Even defining them is beyond the scope of this opinion piece.

I was weaned and raised with Dispensational Theology. I went to a Bible College where they used New Covenant Theology which attempts to take the best of both Covenantal and Dispensational Theology while leaving out the hard, dogmatic stand taken by both of those schools that prevents them from even taking an honest look at interpretations that violate their rigid systems. I had never seen Covenantal Theology. Reading their interpretations of Scripture and how they reached them was an eye opener… I had assumed that the whole world was dispensational.

What happened first was that I identified glaring problems with Covenantal Theology… problems that led them to interpret the Scripture in ways that defied common sense and plain reading. I also identified some strengths in the system that I thought to be superior to the dispensational system.

Having read Covenantal Theology, I went back and looked at Dispensational Theology through a different lens. Here too, I found problems that caused people to interpret Scripture in a way that sometimes defied common sense…. It did not seem to matter what the obvious meaning was… the Scripture had to be bent to fit the system. I also found great strengths in the system.

As I began to read books by New Covenant Theology teachers, I found more liberty to choose the common sense interpretations… sometimes it seemed like they were making up the system as they went… siding with the Dispensationalists on one issue and with the Covenantalists on the next.

Now to my opinion. I find that it is helpful to have a system of theology as you seek to understand the Scripture. I find it troubling that the System often forces unreal and artificial interpretations on the Scripture. Many things that I was taught as “Gospel Truth” are, in reality, “Dispensational truth”. In my humble opinion, Scripture is more important than the system that you use to interpret it… Violating common sense and plain reading by placing artificial and phony, systematic interpretations on that which makes perfect sense, standing on its own, is intellectually and spiritually wrong.

Covenants are of God. You can identify them in Scripture. There are Eternal Covenants, Temporary Covenants, Unconditional Covenants and Unconditional Covenants… The Bible is full of covenants.

The seven “Dispensations”, while sometimes helpful, are arbitrary and manmade. There is no Scripture that speaks to seven “Dispensations” in the Scripture itself, although the word is used twice in the King James Bible.

Why not place common sense and clear meaning ahead of any system? Why not bend the system to fit the Scripture, rather than bending Scripture to fit the system? Why not look at the interpretations from the other schools and ask yourself if they could be right, even though they violate “your system”?

Sometimes, it is helpful to step outside of your system and ask yourself what that passage means in plain Greek…

CALVIN

PREDESTINATION

John Calvin said that, “When God wants to judge a nation, He gives them wicked rulers.” I agree with that… God even let us choose our own wicked ruler… (That thought would drive Calvinists crazy.)

God gave John Calvin to the Church so that he could burn Michael Servetus at the stake!

Of course, Calvin was predestined to burn Michael Servetus at the stake. Michael Servetus was predestined to disagree with John Calvin and predestined to be burned at the stake for having done so. God created Calvin so that He could watch Servetus burn and squirm… Entertainment for a boring morning I suppose…

Calvin agreed with William Shakespeare, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances…” He believed that we were merely scripted actors, playing the part written for us by Almighty God. Not only did God decide whether to send a person to Heaven or Hell before they were born, He designed and chose the shirt they would be wearing the day Calvin tied them to the stake… Calvin believed that Calvin was predestined to be right and everyone else was predestined to be wrong. Those who agreed with Calvin were predestined to be right and go to Heaven. Those who disagreed with Calvin, were, he believed, predestined to be wrong and go to Hell… Amazing how God wrote the play with Calvin in the middle… the standard by which all things are judged.

I remember a story of the Ministerial Association meeting where they were arguing about predestination and free will. It got so hot that they divided into two groups and moved to opposite sides of the room. This poor Pastor arrived late, and finding two groups, he approached the first group and asked, “May I join you?” One of the men in the group came back, “Why do you want to join us?” He replied “You are the first group and there is an empty chair here.” “No!” the group spokesperson said, you cannot join us unless you were sent! Go over there, they will take you.” Going over to the second group, this poor Pastor asked, “May I join you?” “Why are you here?’ the spokesperson for the second group asked. “Because they sent me.” He replied. “No, you cannot join us” the spokesperson replied, “unless you came of your own free will!”

When I told a Calvinist that I believed in limited free will, he came back, “You can’t prove that and don’t give me any crap about predestination being based on foreknowledge!”

He didn’t want to hear that because it is the Scriptural answer to Calvinism and they have no argument against it beyond “Don’t tell me that!”

Of course Free Will is limited. You cannot will yourself to sprout wings and fly, you cannot will the circumstances of your birth and you cannot will yourself to live to the age of one hundred and thirty. You can, however, choose to accept or reject the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that decision will determine much of the circumstance of your life on earth and it will determine your eternal destiny. So, what is the answer to the cruelty and harshness of Calvinism. How do we know that Calvin choose to have Michael Servetus burned at the stake and that he was not scripted to do so, by God, apart from his own free will?

Romans 8:29 For those He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.

“THOSE HE FOREKNEW HE ALSO PREDESTINED”

 God did not create mindless robots, programmed to act out a play for his entertainment. God created men with a free will. God also knew everything from the beginning, including who would accept him and who would reject him. Based on that knowledge, God predestined those who would accept and embrace him, to be conformed to his image. God knew, before the foundation of the world, that we would love him. He has predestined us to be like Jesus…

There is a key to every problem, somewhere in Scripture. Balancing Free Will with Predestination can be challenging and difficult. God, who understood that, gave us the key to understanding. Calvin was not predestined to be right. Others were not predestined to be wrong. Calvin, of his own free will, decided to murder a man for the crime of disagreeing with his private interpretation of Scripture. Calvin is not a hero; he is a murderer. Calvin, though not wrong on every issue, was not right in everything; he was a heretic who used the idea of predestination to defend and support his own sin.

There are Calvinists today who would burn me at the stake for the crime of offending their champion. Calvin still has a way of attracting hard headed and arrogant followers. It is very handy to blame your own sin on the God you believe wrote it into the script and forced you to sin…

You are free to accept this article or to reject it. You cannot blame God…

ABSOLUTE PROOF…

ABSOLUTE PROOF THAT THE ANTICHRIST IS FROM…

It is funny how people get ahold of a couple of verses and think they know everything. I have seen people write pages “proving” that Antichrist comes from one place or another…

  • Rome,
  • Turkey,
  • Assyria,
  • London,
  • New York,
  • Washington DC…

You can find pages dedicated to proving that Antichrist is from all of those places.

The people who believe in a particular place will not listen to anyone else and tend to call people who disagree with them names like stupid and heretic…

I sometimes just have to laugh…

Welcome!

The idea here is to be able to communicate with as many people as possible; without killing myself in the process. Facebook has taken me to almost two thousand friends, with thousands more interacting through the groups and pages that have adopted me. This should reach all of those people… and more, while concentrating the conversation in one central spot.

They tell me that this site may not work well for up to seventy two hours… I guess that it somehow needs to stabilize. By Monday, this should work well.

Here I will organize posts by subject and they will be available in the Archives… If you remember something I wrote a while back, you will be able to search for it through the search box.

Everything I write here is yours to copy and republish… I do ask that you give credit and link back to this blog and the original article… I know that you will and I am grateful.

Please let me know if you can read this. Until the Blog is solid and you get accustomed to it, I will continue to respond on Facebook…

God Bless each and every one of you…
