There’s something bizarre about watching someone try to kill a hornet with a nuclear strike while simultaneously protecting the hornet’s nest from which it came, but that’s pretty much what we’re witnessing now from many “Christian leaders” who seem to take every opportunity to express outrage and even threaten civil disobedience over the looming Supreme Court pronouncement on the subject of “gay marriage”. (See: Waiting for the “Supreme Court” to break the ice beneath our feet.)
As Fox News reported this week, Southern Baptists are about to “get serious”…about something…:
Prepare for civil disobedience.
That’s the message one prominent pastor is sending to some 16 million members of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Texas, said American Christians should be prepared for massive fallout if the Supreme Court legalizes same-sex unions.
“We want to stay in the system,” Graham told me in a telephone interview. “We want to work in the system. We want to support our government. We want to obey its laws.”
“But there’s a coming a day, I believe, that many Christians personally and churches corporately will need to practice civil disobedience on this issue.”
Pastor Graham has been wrestling with this issue for a while now, and that’s a good thing. What’s not so good is that many in the “Christian leadership” camp have, more often than not, defended and enabled the worldview factories that have produced the tipping-point generation in which we now seem to live.
By “worldview factories” I mean government-run schools for children. (See: The God of Government “Education”.)
During Pastor Graham’s career in Southern Baptist church leadership, especially over the past 10-15 years or so, there has been a growing movement from the grassroots to formally advocate the removal of Christian children from these explicitly anti-Christian worldview factories known as public schools. That movement has been dismissed, ignored and often times openly repudiated and opposed by “Christian leaders” from various evangelical denominations, including Southern Baptists.
Another (even more famous and powerful) Graham has come out swinging in the past against those who advocate removing Christian children from immersion in a system of “education” that is in harmony with both the Communist Manifesto and the serpent’s presentation of “the pursuit of knowledge” in Genesis 3. (See: Redeeming Children’s Education: Confronting Our Satanic Approach to the Pursuit of Knowledge.)
As we covered earlier this month in Franklin Graham’s Incoherent “Fight” Against the Homosexual Agenda, most of the same “Christian leaders” who are going nuts on the “gay marriage” issue have long been about the business of pompously propping up, coddling and defending the explicitly unbiblical and anti-Christian construct of State-run children’s education.
Back in April, we asked, Have the “We will not obey!” Christian “leaders” repented of their role in bringing us to this hellish condition in the first place?
The answer now sadly seems to be about the same as it was then.
So who’s most responsible for the “Supreme Court” proclamation that’s about to come and plunge the culture even deeper into darkness?
The professing Christian church, that’s who. (See: Judgment begins with the Church…not the Democrats.)
And who’s most responsible for leading the professing Christian church to State compliance on this and so many other issues?
It’s State-programmed “pastors” and “priests”, that’s who. (See: Why is the beast of Socialism eating our children? Ask your pastor.)
So as guys like Franklin Graham, Mike Huckabee and the like take to the stage to “lead” us in opposition to the hornet whose nest they’ve proudly and passionately helped to build, expand and protect, let’s keep our eye on the ball and not buy into the hype.
Every generation of Americans will continue to become more Statist, more dependent on the State, and more pro-gay (and whatever comes next), all by design, for as long as we refuse to submit to Christ’s commands on the vital subject of children’s education.
Killing stray hornets is fine and good. It needs to be done.
But obsessing over the occasional hornet while protecting and expanding the nest from which it comes?
That’s just idiotic, unproductive and dangerous.
The product of a fundamentally flawed “education”, you might say.

FireBreathingChristian: "The product of a fundamentally flawed “education”, you might say."
You hit the nail on the head there.
However, there's a great need for recognition of the heart of the matter.
These so called “Christians” hate the truth; and because they do, here’s what’s happened to them:
Because they do not have a love of the truth, God has sent them a strong delusion, so that they will believe what is false in order that they all may be judged because they did not believe the truth but took pleasure in lawlessness. 2 Thessalonians 2: 10 – 12.
Moreover, as far as they're concerned, His Law has been done away with.
Isn't it the so called "Judeo-Christians", "Fundamentalist Christians", "New Testament Only Christians", "Southern Baptists", etc., lead by false prophets such as Graham, etc., that teach the lie that God' Laws, Statutes and Judgments have been done away with, " are contrary to us", etc., etc., when Christ Himself said the exact opposite: Matthew 5: 17-19 ?
"Unless they speak to the Law and the testimonies, there is no light in them."
“The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep his commandments, because this applies to every person. For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.” Ecclesiastes 12: 13-14.
The Communist Manifesto" and the Ten Planks Contained therein. They're all in full force and effect in the U.S.S.A., including the evil forum the majority of children are sent: Plank #10: Free compulsory education (indoctrination via the public fool system).
Where the daughters are taught to be whores and the sons to be sodomites! http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/cutest-couple-…
And, as one so called "Christian" blogger wrote: " By any measure our education system is substandard and with the introduction of the unproven and untried Common Core, it will continue to decline." (But, the hypocritical, double mined fool continues to send his child there to this day !)
Such things as this "Common Core" ludicrous nonsense will continue, as well as the substandard education condition of the public fool system and sex perversion, because we've rejected The Almighty's Law regarding education (as well as most of the rest of His law) and opted for "free" public education (sic).
"Since you have forgotten the Law of your God, I also will forget your children." Hosea 3: 6.
This Godless nation that has not only kicked The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and His Commandments, Statutes and Judgments out of every forum, including the Public Fool System, and replaced it with a communist system (now morphed into corporate fascism) !
Many who complain about what's unchristian, anti-God, anti-liberty and freedom, etc., etc., in all the public forums and are trying to figure out how to fix this, not only complain about them, they continue to pay for it (i. e., feed The Beast), as well as participate.as well as participate in them by sending their "tithes and offerings" (a.k.a. The 2nd Plank) come the "ides of April" to this false god (fed. gov. and name a state), instead of to the True God. How can victory over The Beast be expected, if The Beast is continually fed ????
Continued from above:
We're His people and our nation as a whole has turned its back on The Great I Am !
Here's the root of the problem and it started long before you, I and all those alive today: "We The People” were deceived into believing they should be god (sovereign) and decide what is to be the supreme law of the land via representational legislation (law making), e.g.,"A Republic, if you can keep it."
What is very difficult for most to realize is that the corrupt system we now find ourselves living under today was inevitable over time.
Knowingly or unknowingly, the door was established and opened by the Founding Fathers, which many claim were “Christian”.
The process was allowed to begin when they decided “We The People” should be god (sovereign) and determine what is to be the law of the land.
The legislative process provided by the various federal and state constitutions was the vehicle used by the enemy to corrupt over time (via gradual increments) and finally take over.
This nation wanted to determine what was “good and evil” (remember the garden?), instead of enforcing His Perfect Moral Laws.
Malim in se (evil in and of itself as defined by The Great I Am, the ONLY lawgiver) vs. malim prohibitum (evil because someone determines, or legislates, it to be evil).
The result: We not only find evil, rotten, Marxist, Edomite Tares (as well as the "Twice The Sons of Hell they proselytized) corrupting the nation, we also find “The Communist Manifesto” and The Ten Planks contained therein, written by the Edomite, son of a Rabbi, Karl Marx, is the system our enemy was allowed to slowly ensnare us with, here in the good ol' U.S.S.A.
All 10 Planks of The Communist Manifesto in Full Force In AmeriKa: http://www.criminalgovernment.com/docs/planks.htm…
And now it’s morphed into Corporate Fascism; just one of many terrible results of replacing The Ten Commandments with Those Ten Planks.
The only way to save this nation is to turn back to Him, His Perfect Moral Laws, Statutes and Judgments, i.e., His Kingdom/Will On Earth.
He told us that if His people ” … shall humble themselves (e.g., quit thinking we’re the sovereign, take our proper place and quit usurping His), and pray, and seek my face (e.g., He’s to be the ONLY law giver), and turn from their wicked ways (e.g., seek His Kingdom/Will and promote the enforcement of His Laws, Statutes and Judgments); THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, And I will give you rest. Take My yoke (i.e., His Law 1 John 5: 2 & 3, as well as His tithe [tax] system) upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and ‘YOU SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.’ (Jer. 6: 16). My yoke is easy, and My load is light.” Matthew 11: 28 – 30.
Seek Him while He may yet be found.
State Sponsored – be careful – how many of you go to the STATE for their blessings.
Southern Baptists also flip out over same-sex "marriages" but then turn right around and promote the genesis for the homosexual agenda in America:
Clue: There was no homosexual agenda or same-sex "marriage" in 17th-century Colonial America whose governments of, by, and for God were established upon Yahweh's immutable moral law, including Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13.
Therefore, there has to be a defining moment in our history when America's Christian character and biblical course were dramatically altered. That point was in 1787 when the late 18th-century founders replaced the 17th-Colonial governments for their own humanistic government of, by, and for the people based upon capricious Enlightenment and Masonic concepts.
"…3. Every problem America faces today can be traced back to the fact that the framers failed to expressly establish a government upon Yahweh’s immutable morality as codified in His commandments, statutes, and judgments. (Would infanticide and sodomy be tolerated, let alone financed by the government, if Yahweh’s perfect law and altogether righteous judgments were the law of the land? Would Islam be a looming threat to our peace and security if the First Amendment had been replaced with the First Commandment? Would Americans be in nearly as much debt if usury had been outlawed as a form of theft? Would crime be as rampant if “cruel and unusual punishment” had not been outlawed and criminals were instead punished with Yahweh’s altogether righteous judgments? Would we be on the fiscal cliff if we were taxed with a flat increase tax rather than a graduated income tax?)…."
