"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first
heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no
more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming
down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the
tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and
they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them,
and be their God.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there
shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall
there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things
new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and
And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the
beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of
the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh
shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall
be my son. (Revelation 21:1-7 KJV) ]
- We believe every word in the KJV Bible and believe it is
the Word of God and that Jesus is the Christ, God Himself, who
spilled His blood on the cross for our sins and rose again to
prepare a place for those who repent and accept 'His' righteousness
as their righteousness. They are those who accept Jesus Christ
as their Lord and Savior, Jews first and then Gentiles. "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any
man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him,
and will sup with him, and he with me." We
invite you to take this opportunity to say 'yes' to Jesus and

- MORE GREETINGS to all and the newcomers to this list. We'd
like to introduce ourselves. George and Rita Williams founded
this ministry. We were Mormons (Temple Mormons) for 20 years.
We prayed to God in 1992 to allow us to do a ministry speaking
out against Scientology. Six months later God led us to the truth:
out of the cult of Mormonism. We did not know at the time we
were in a cult. No-one had witnessed to us in 20 years.
- The Holy Spirit brought us to information about all the cults
and the present development of the New World Order. We began
bringing our research to you. Because all the research was already
done, we decided to build a library within Cephas Ministry. Our
newsletters are not designed to provoke
anger which is strictly prohibited in Scripture. It is to shed
light on activities by those who would deceive those who are
recorded in the Book of Life by devious methods and systematic
- We are Bible students and have left all worldly organizations.
We attend church if the message is from the authorized KJV Bible.
The focus of these newsletters is to prove why we had to leave
the world system. We are called 'Watchmen on the Wall' which
God always had during the Old / New Testament Times.
- To understand what is happening, one has to know the Bible
to compare notes.
- The first section is about the church.
The news about churches is unedited unless indicated by Ednotes.
The church as we knew it, is undergoing disintegration. This
began on a fast track in the early nineteen sixties when the
Catholic Church produced liberal Vatican II to replace Vatican
- The trend since then has been ecumenical which is truly what
the word 'Catholicism' means: a universal religion all
inclusive and multicultural. The Bible calls for a final church
and today's church doesn't resemble what Jesus taught. The Word
of God has undergone many changes to fit the progressive modes.
Many new Bible tranlations have brought confusion. The Bible
calls for a falling away from the truth before
Jesus comes back for His Bride. The true believers are called
'Ekklesia.' Our newsletters prove this fact and prove that the
Bible is true from beginning to end.
- The second section is about globalism
where we bring your attention to the social, political and global
trend, the so called democratizing what is left of the world.
This is a deception since the underlying new world global government
is developed by implementing sustainable development. The
Bible prophesies that there will be ten kings (ten horns), each
king (horn) will receive a region of the world as a reward for
work well done for the Antichrist. This is the reason for the
present development of NAU (The North American Union) as well
as the war in the Middle East. It again proves that we are moving
to closure of the times of the Gentiles prophesied in the Bible.
The end result will not be Democracy but a form of Fascist Communism
(Public/Private Corporations enslaving mankind).
- The third section compliments End Time
teachings because Israel is the time piece of the Biblical Prophecy.
1948 was the beginning of the figtree representing Israel, coming
back to life. Israel was allowed to return to its land. Israel
is the rock upon which the world stumbles and crumbles. We watch
and visit Israel for signs which point to the Tribulation to
confirm that we are moving into that space of time.
- Watchmen on the wall do not solicit memberships. We have
an email group that gets information when we upload new information
and newsletters whenever it is possible time wise. We love the
Lord with all our hearts and minds and we love all people God
has created but especially those who love our Lord and Savior,
Jesus Christ. Our Mission and Statement of Faith are at http://www.cephasministry.com/statement_of_faith.html

and harmless as doves.

Newsletter reminds us that the hour is very late, and we need
to be ready for the Lords coming. Are you sure that
you are born again? Are you living for Christ?
that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out
of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore
cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the
armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not
in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness,
not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof"

in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch
and pray; for you do not know when the time is. And what I say
to you, I say to all: 'Watch'. The Lord is not slack concerning
His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering (patient)
toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should
come to repentance. The coming of the Lord is at hand. The Judge
is standing at the door! Surely I am coming quickly. Therefore,
since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons
ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness? The end of all
things is at hand; therefore, be serious and watchful in your

- 1599 GENEVA BIBLE
The Pilgrims' Most Precious Cargo
When the Pilgrims arrived in America in 1620, they brought along
supplies, a consuming passion to advance the Kingdom of Christ,
a bright hope for the future, and their most precious
cargo the Word of God.
- Have you ever wondered which version of the Bible they brought
to America on the Mayflower? There was the King James Version
of 1611, but there was an earlier version one not sanctioned
by the government the 1599 Geneva Bible, a forgotten yet
- The Geneva Bible, printed more than 200 times between 1560
and 1644, was the most widely read and influential English Bible
of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This superb translation
was the product of the best Protestant scholars of the day and
became the Bible of choice for many of the greatest writers,
thinkers, and historical figures of that time. Men such as Shakespeare,
John Bunyan, and John Milton used the Geneva Bible, and it was
reflected in their writings. During the English Civil War, Oliver
Cromwell issued a pamphlet containing excerpts from the Geneva
Bible to his troops. William Bradford cited the Geneva Bible
in his book "Of Plymouth Plantation."
- The Geneva Bible became the most popular version of its time
partly because of its extensive margin notes. These notes, written
by Reformation leaders such as John Calvin, John Knox, Miles
Coverdale, William Whittingham, Anthony Gilby, and others, were
included to explain and interpret the scriptures for the common
- For nearly half a century these notes helped the people of
England, Scotland, and Ireland understand the Bible and true
liberty. King James despised the Geneva Bible because he considered
the notes on key political texts to be seditious and a threat
to his authority. Unlike the King James Version, the Geneva Bible
was not authorized by the government. It was truly a Bible by
the people and for the people. The Geneva Bible is the Bible

- By Pastor Tavares Robinson - (1888PressRelease) July 07,
2010 - Innovo Publishing LLC released a new Christian title,
Shepherds, Hirelings, and Dictators: How to Recognize the Difference,
a practical guide for distinguishing between true and false shepherds
(i.e., pastors and teachers). Throughout the generations, false
prophets and insincere teachers have pretended to have the best
interests of God's people in mind. They claim they are human
instruments who have received direct words of the Lord through
the Holy Spirit. But in the final analysis, they do not represent
God, and they harm the sheep often to the point of costing them
their souls. In Shepherds, Hirelings, and Dictators: How to Recognize
the Difference, Pastor Robinson urges the people of God to take
heed of the many scriptural warnings against false teachers found
in both the Old and New Testaments.

How to Recognize the Difference, written by Pastor Tavares Robinson

- JIM WALLIS POINTS TO LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS - DEFENDS POSITION
On June 1st, Lighthouse
Trails posted an article by M. Danielsen titled, Sojourners
Founder Jim Wallis Revolutionary Anti-Christian Gospel
(and Will Christian Leaders Stand with Wallis?). On
June 19th, we posted a second article titled TRAVESTY
at LIFEST PARENTS: Dont Send Your Kids Radical-Emergent/Liberal
Jim Wallis to Speak at Lifest (What is Luis Palau Doing There?).
This second article included a link to a radio interview by VCY
Americas Ingrid Schlueter and Mare Danielsen on this same
subject. Yesterday, June 30th, a Wisconsin radio station (Lifest
is held in WI)
pulled its sponsorship of Lifest because of Wallis
appearance. All of these things led to a response by Jim Wallis
on his Sojourners blog today. That article begins as such:
- Calling People to Faith
by Jim Wallis
- Several months ago, I was invited to speak at Lifest,
a Christian festival in Wisconsin with more than 100 musicians
and 50 speakers that draws tens of thousands of mostly young
people. That invitation has recently become controversial, as
a number of false accusations have been made against me and our
Sojourners ministry. One
long article [Danielsen's article on Lighthouse Trails] actually
put me in the company of Rick Warren, Bill & Lynne Hybels,
and the National Association of Evangelical as heretical. Most
recently, a local radio station in Wisconsin pulled
their sponsorship of Lifest, saying we believe the
social justice message and agenda they promote is a seed of secular
humanism, seeking an unholy alliance between the Church and Government.
Nevertheless, Bob Lenz
and the leadership of Lifest stood by their invitation for me
to speak next week. I wrote this statement at Bobs request
in response to the controversy.
- It has come to my attention that there is some controversy
around the invitation I received to speak at Lifest. It seems
there have been false rumors and misperceptions spreading about
me and about Sojourners, the organization I lead. I wanted to
help clarify who we are in an effort for us all to put the main
focus back on the mission of Lifest, which is to call people
to faith in Jesus Christ. (To read this entire article by Jim
- CONCERNING JIM WALLIS AND LEONARD SWEET
Dear friends, What do you think of Lighthouse Trails response
to Wallis and many of his friends, like Leonard Sweet, who clearly
have changed and redefined the gospel of Jesus Christ to suit
their own political-religious understanding of how this world
should function? I have written about this left and right wing
political debate recently, trying to convince my friends and
family members to keep their hearts and minds fixed on the person
of Jesus Christ, his atoning shed blood, his glorious resurrection,
and his return to this war-torn planet. For then he will come
in righteous judgment "making war" against his enemies
and imprison Satan and the fallen angels in the Bottomless Pit
for one-thousand years.
My hope is that my right wing conservative friends will not use
this delusion of Wallis and Sweet as justification to join with
the extremists from the right wing who, like Wallis, want to
take dominion over American and the nations. Both extremes are
in serious error as they reject the sound prophetic teaching
of the pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ as he returns to
intervene in the affairs of men and fallen angels who bring nothing
but death and destruction upon themselves.
Robert, the list you have of people that support Leonard Sweet
and Frank Viola is astonishing. How can these men and women,
many like Tommy Barnett who claim to be born again leaders, be
so seduced into joining and mixing with the teachings of Sweet
and his friends. It is one thing to be kind and compassionate
on those who are following a false gospel, for our Lord Jesus
looked down from his cross on his accusers and asked his Father
to offer them forgiveness. But is a grave error to not discern
the false teachings of these men who are now leading Christendom
into a great apostasy. They are even joining themselves to the
Papacy, hoping to establish the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, but
without the bodily presence of our Lord Jesus.
Please reconsider what you have joined yourself to my friend.
Sincerely in Christ Jesus, http://www.babylonthegreatisfalling.net

OF RELIGIOUS COLLABORATION"
- By Michael Carl - WorldNetDaily - Saying that not all Muslims
or Christians or Jews for that matter believe their
faith is the only way to God, the United Methodist Churchs
Claremont School of Theology has launched a program to train
leaders for the often-conflicting faiths together.
The unorthodox program was announced on the website
for the school, and detailed in a statement released by school
media-relations officer Claudia Pearce. President Jerry Campbell
declined to be interviewed, although a video of a news conference
with him was featured on the school website.
- Christians, Muslims and Jews will now have the opportunity
to take classes together to learn about each others religious
traditions, to study topics that deal specifically with interfaith
issues and to build bridges through coursework that assists them,
our societys future religious leaders, to act collaboratively
in response to the various issues that face our society and world,
the statement said. The statement from Pearce said the program
the school calls the university project isnt
compromising the basic truths of Christianity.
- In answer to a question concerning the reality that all three
faiths have exclusive truth claims, the statement says only some
of each religions followers hold to exclusivity. There
are a variety of beliefs regarding exclusivity in each of the
traditions, and not all Christians, Jews and Muslims believe
that their way is the only way, the school said. Click

- A NEW WORRY FOR PARENTS
- Digital drugs sold on the Internet induce altered
states of consciousness - LTRP Note: The following article describes
how teens are getting high from listening to certain
high frequency digital sounds on the Internet. Basically, what
is happening is the sounds are being used as a mantra to take
listeners into altered states of consciousness, similar to drug
use or contemplative/centering prayer (i.e., eastern meditation).
It was the contemplative mystic, Thomas Merton, who compared
contemplative meditation to that of an LSD trip. Now, parents
have a new worry their kids getting high without
drugs. All the more reason for Christian parents to make sure
their teens understand the dangers of contemplative spirituality.

- A new worry for parents digital drugs
sold on the Internet
Press of Atlantic City Media Group
- For decades, parents, doctors and school administrators have
worried about the dangers of drugs. In the digital age, theyve
got a new arena for concern: Sound waves that, some say, affect
the brain like a drug and cost only 99 cents on iTunes
- Many scientific experts say theyre unfamiliar with
digital drugs sometimes sold under the brand
name I-Dosers and doubt whether sound patterns could have
the same effect as chemical drugs. But some parents and
at least one Oklahoma school system worry that downloading
these sounds could be a teens first step toward physical
- As proof, they point to YouTube, where hundreds of videos
some of teen users getting high
have been posted. On the I-Doser Facebook page, users

- WHY THE TRINITY REALLY MATTERS
07/22/10 - Author: Ed Young Jr. - I want to know God more than
anything. However, in order to know Him, I have got to know and
understand the Trinity. God the Father, God the Son, and God
the Holy Spirit are one in essence and three in persons. They
are co-existent and co-eternal.
- Its popular these days, I mean it really is, to say,
Why is the Trinity such a hot issue? Arent we splitting
hairs? I mean, what does it really matter? Im talking
to you, friends, about the crux of Christianity. Im talking
to you about the foundation of our faith.
- What if I said, Okay, heres a couple of hundred
thousand dollars. Go out and build a house. You wouldnt
say, Who cares about the foundation? Im just going
to go ahead and build the house. Foundations matter, dont
they? They matter, especially in this area. They really matter.
We are talking about something that is huge. We are talking about
the very foundation of our faith.
- We have this belief these days, this politically correct
belief that God is like this big smoothie God. Anywhere
you look these days, you will see a smoothie store on the corner
-- Smoothie King, Jamba Juice -- we even sell smoothies at The
Source. I love smoothies. Smoothies are good. You can customize
- A lot of us think God is a smoothie God. We think,
You can throw Islam, Scientology, Mormonism, Jehovah Witnesses,
astronism and all this stuff in the blender, and God could just
push the button and blend them all together. They are all the
same. Whenever someone says that, they are advertising
their ignorance. They are saying, You know what? I have
never studied the world religions. I never have. Christianity
is totally unique and totally different from all the other major
world religions. In Gods blender, its God the Father,
God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. You will never have another
smoothie like it. Its unique.
- In John 14:6, Jesus said, I am the way and the truth
and the life. He said that. He didnt say, Im
an option. He didnt say, Im one of many
different ways. He said, I am the way. I didnt
say it. Im just telling you what Jesus said. You see, the
exclusivity of Christianity really bothers people in our pluralistic
culture. We cant take it.
- The Trinity its unique. Think about Islam, for
example. Muslims deny the Trinity. They see God as a sequestered
god, a god you cant really know, and an authoritarian god.
Think about Mormonism. Mormons deny the Trinity. In Mormonism,
everybody is a god. Youre a god. Hes a god. Shes
a god. They deny the Trinity. Jehovahs Witnesses deny the
Trinity. They feel that God the Father created God the Son. One
sect of Hinduism denotes over 330 million different gods. They,
obviously, deny the Trinity. Buddhism is just a philosophy of
life. So, to sit there and say, Yeah, all the world religions
are kind of the same
Hello? They are not.

- MARYLAND BECOMES SECOND STATE TO OFFER FEDERALLY FUNDED ABORTIONS
- By Matt Cover, CNS News, July 16, 2010 - "Maryland will
join Pennsylvania as the second state to use federal tax dollars
to pay for abortions under the new health care law signed by
President Barack Obama in March, according to information released
by Marylands State Health Insurance Plan." Remember
that now infamous lie from President Obama, as he was trying
ot mollify Conservative and/or Christian concerns that his Health
Care bill would vastly increase Abortion? "During the debate
over the health-care bill, President Obama delivered a speech
to a joint session of Congress, saying: 'Under our plan, no federal
dollars will be used to fund abortions'.
Remember the lying Executive Order Obama issued?
- "The day the House voted to pass that bill, President
Obama also signed an executive order purporting to prevent federal
funding of abortions in the programs it created." We can
see now that President Obama is just as great a liar as President
Bush was when he was convincing Americans that he needed to invade
Iraq! Whenever an Illuminati leader is trying to persuade his
people that the poison he is trying to administer is really for
their good, he can be very, very persuasive! But, of course,
such a leader is greatly aided by his naturally guilable people
Do you remember what Adolf Hitler said about this issue?
- "What luck for rulers that people do not think'! Unfortunately
for America, too many people did not think. And, now we have
a runaway Abortion Plan funded by Federal Dollars. The nightmare
of killing innocents within the womb is just getting higher and
higher, reminding me of a key Judgment passage:
- "For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath
remembered her iniquities." (Revelation 18:5; Parallel Bible,
KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
- The Amplified side provides us with more detail: "For
her iniquities (her crimes and transgressions) are piled up as
high as heaven, and God has remembered her wickedness and her
crimes and calls them up for settlement."
- Doesn't this prophetic verse describe America very well?
Do you know why the Illuminati is so interested in Abortion?
We answer this issue in NEWS1405,
entitled, "AMERICA'S LOVE OF DEATH CONTINUES".
- UNITING RELIGIONS FOR WORLD CHANGE: THE G8 WORLD RELIGIOUS
by Carl Teichrib - Forcing Change (courtesy
- Points to Ponder About Christian Interfaith Involvement:
1) The interfaith approach is rationally directionless. If all
religions are equally valid or hold some common level of spiritual
authenticity, as the interfaith movement asserts, then all religions
are ultimately baseless. Therefore, the nonbeliever can logically
reject Christianity as a meaningless sect among many meaningless
faiths. For by acknowledging another religion as a vehicle that
proclaims the revelation of God, even tentatively, the exclusive
nature of God as revealed in the Bible (Isaiah 45:18-22; John
14:6-7) can no longer be viewed as exclusively true. The door
has now been opened to consider any other spiritual claim as
legitimate; and to not accept these other claims would demonstrate
an intolerant exclusivity.
- Either Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be, the great I
AM 'the only true God' or He's only one way among many and His
claim is false. It's an all or nothing position (see Joshua 24:14-24).
- 2) The interfaith position muddies the Christian mission
of bringing the good news of Jesus Christ as God incarnate come
to redeem sinful humanity. Inter-religious bridge building bolsters
the idea (continued on page 17)
- A sacred fire was lit. Mother Earth, we were told, needs
to hear that we love her, so give a 'prayer of gratitude' to
the Earth; 'Because out of Mother Earth comes all we need to
live 'she gives us the food, the water, the medicines, and the
- We were asked to privately perform a water ritual, for this
will give strength to Mother Earth. Everything that's alive,
'even the water' it was explained to the delegates and observers,
has the spirit. We were told that religiously speaking, 'there
is not only one way, there is many ways' and to go to the sacred
fire and 'invoke the spirits.'
- Drummers summoned the power of the eagle spirit, because
it brings ?the spirit of love, it brings vision. The Eagle carries
our wishes and our prayers.' And this eagle spirit will tell
the Great Spirit of the wonderful things happening in this gathering.
- And what a gathering! As an observer to the 2010, G8 World
Religions Summit (WRS), I listened as the opening ceremonies
set the tone for this remarkable event. The Secretary General
of the WRS, Dr. James Christie 'the Dean of Theology at the University
of Winnipeg' welcomed us as religious equals, stating that what
was important was that we 'offer our service, and ourselves,
and our lives' to the 'God we know by so many names.'(1)
- This multi-faith perspective was evident in full color; Hindu
swamis in flowing orange attire, members of the Saudi Ministry
of Islamic Affairs dressed in desert garb, Jewish yamakas, cross
pendants and clerical collars, Shinto robes, Orthodox priests
in black, Salvation Army uniforms, and Baha?i leaders and evangelical
Christians in business suits. Religions from every corner of
the planet were represented. Even so, very few people have heard
about the G8 World Religions Summit, held in Winnipeg, Manitoba
from June 21-23.
- Compared to the G8/G20 political summits occurring days later
in Toronto and Huntsville, Ontario, the WRS 'the official religious
parallel' was an ultra-tame affair. The security budget for the
Winnipeg event was zero; nobody burnt any cars, and no windows
were smashed. The only 'protestors' were a group of Mennonites
who, a few days before the Summit began, sang songs of support
at a downtown park. (2) In fact, many of the international participants
had 'never heard of Winnipeg' before. (3)
- Nevertheless, what occurred in Winnipeg will likely have
a far more real impact at the local level than what transpired
in Toronto. Why do I say this? Because of the direct lines of
influence that radiate from the World Religions Summit right
down to individual bodies. It?s a top-down strategy ensuring
that religious people will fall in line with an emerging global
framework ? a type of world theology along with an international
system of socialism. And it's going to work, particularly in
the Christian community.
- The history of the G8 World Religions Summit goes back to
2005. That year, Jim Wallis of Sojourners 'a left wing Christian
advocacy group' teamed up with the Archbishop of Canterbury to
raise the voices of the faith leaders of the world in unity and
in a call for justice.' (4) The 2005 event was a small, ecumenical
affair made up of representatives from Catholic groups, the National
Association of Evangelicals, World Vision, the Salvation Army,
the Mennonite Central Committee, the World Evangelical Alliance,
and other church bodies.
- These leaders released an 'Action on Poverty' document calling
for governments to alleviate poverty, and for faith communities
to generate the necessary moral will. The text itself was very
short and ambiguous, with a underlying socialist slant.
- The next year, the G8 religious summit took place in Moscow
and a host of other religions contributed; leaders from the Muslim,
Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, and Shinto communities ? along with
Christians, hashed out another declaration, this time calling
for a 'more systemic partnership of religious leaders with the
United Nations.' In 2007 at Cologne, the emphasis was on the
UN Millennium Development goals and the support for a worldwide
climate change 'protection agreement.' 2008 and 2009 saw the
religious leaders meeting in Sapporo/Kyoto/Osaka, Japan and Rome,
- Sapporo's declaration called for religions to unite in a
'commitment to peace'? It also recognized that 'religious communities
are the world's largest social networks which reach into the
furthest corners of the earth.'In other words, religions are
powerful actors in the global field.
- Hence, the Sapporo text demanded a system of 'Shared Security'
based on interdependence, the 'mysterious giftedness of all existence,'
the establishment of an 'Earth Fund dedicated to environmental
protection,' and a binding global climate treaty. Another document
was released in Japan, recognizing that the 'dharmic, pantheistic
and ancestor traditions of Eastern societies remain a practical
tool' in defence of the environment.' And religious diversity
was expounded as part of the divine, cosmic order ' therefore,
' we seek to be considered equal partners.' (5)
- Finally in Rome, faith leaders focused on the worsening global
economy and broadly called for a 'new financial pact, 'P without
really explaining what it would entail. To be fair to the Rome
event, the entire summit was overshadowed by the almost simultaneous
release of Pope Benedict's encyclical Charity in Truth, which
shook the international community in its brazen call for a world
political authority 'with teeth.' (See the Forcing Change report,
'Sowing the Seeds of Global Government,? Volume 3, Issue 8)'.
- What all of this represents, from the first event in 2005
until Winnipeg, is the intentional move within Christendom to
politically unite with other faiths 'in one community.' The motivator:
Social Justice ' world peace, care for the Earth, and alleviating
poverty. And who doesn't want peace, a healthy environment, and
the poor raised above their poverty'
- These are admirable goals. But something else is going on,
raising the question: What does the Christian community have
to sacrifice in the name of interfaith partnering for 'social

- On speakers list for Muslim group cited as a 'chief conduit'
to bring Islam to U.S.
- July 26, 2010 - by Aaron Klein - WorldNetDaily - Eboo Patel
-A religion adviser to President Obama has close ties to a radical
Muslim group that was an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme
to raise money for Hamas. The group, the Islamic Society of North
America, or ISNA, has an extensive relationship with the Obama
administration. In February, Obama named a Chicago Muslim, Eboo
Patel, to his Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood
Partnerships. Patel is the founder and executive director of
Chicago-based Interfaith Youth Core, which says it promotes pluralism
by teaming people of different faiths on service projects. Patel
is listed on ISNA's official speakers bureau. Here's the rundown
on Obama's ties to "communists, socalists and other anti-American
extremists all in "The Manchurian President."
From his own comments, Patel apparently is a member of ISNA.

- QUANTUM SPIRITUALITY HAS ENTERED THE CHURCH THROUGH CHRISTIAN
by Warren Smith - Leonard Sweet is definitely one of the point
men for today?s emerging/postmodern/Purpose Driven Church. As
Rick Warren has aligned himself with Sweet, it is important to
remember that Sweet has described former and present New Age
figures as his ?heroes? and ?role models.? He has openly acknowledged
that his quantum ?new cell theory? understanding of ?new light
leadership? was formulated with the help of veteran New Age leader
David Spangler. Additionally, Sweet describes mystical New Age
priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin as ?Twentieth-century Christianity?s
major voice.?1 And while Sweet?s almost ?in your face? New Age
sympathies are there for all to see, Rick Warren, and other Christian
figures continue to hold him in high esteem. But it is just business
as usual as Warren?s apologist tells us that ?Doctrinally/theologically,
Leonard Sweet is about as Christian as anyone can get.?2
- In his 2009 book So Beautiful, Leonard Sweet underscores
his quantum ?relational worldview?3 by favorably quoting from
William Young?s The Shack regarding relationship.4 He also tells
readers to look to Margaret Wheatley?s Leadership and the New
Science to further understand his quantum view on the ?spiritual
and social significance of relationship.?5 And he still continues
to refer readers back to his 1991 book, Quantum Spirituality.6
- While appearing to be somewhat of a 21st century renaissance
man who leaves everyone in the wake of his postmodern intellect,
Leonard Sweet?s ?scientific? postmodern/quantum/New Age view
on things raises some critical questions?particularly in regard
to his association with Rick Warren. If Warren, Sweet, and other
Christian leaders continue to move the church towards the New
Spirituality, how will it ultimately play out? Will we see Warren,
Schuller, Sweet, McLaren, and other ?New Light? leaders signing
a mutual accord someday affirming that God is ?in? everything?
Will that proclamation be based on new ?scientific findings?
from quantum physics? Will they explain that Pierre Teilhard
de Chardin and the ?God? of Neale Donald Walsch and William Young
had it right?that ?the sub-atomic reality? is that God is in
every atom? That God really is?scientifically speaking??in? everyone
- But what about the inevitable reaction that will come from
those referred to by Rick Warren as ?fundamentalists?7 when they
accuse Warren of flip-flopping? Will Warren defend his new worldview
by repeating what he said at the Saddleback Civil Forum?that
?sometimes flip-flopping is smart because you actually have decided
a better position based on knowledge that you didn?t have?? Armed
with seemingly scientific ?facts? from quantum physics, will
Warren defend his new worldview by stating, ?That?s not flip-flopping.
Sometimes that?s growing in wisdom?? Is this where Warren, Sweet,
and other Christian leaders will try to take the church? Are
they about to take a big ?quantum leap? into the New Spirituality
of a New Age that is based on the findings of the ?new science??
Given the continued New Age implications of the emerging Purpose
Driven movement, it would seem that this is a real possibility.

- PAPACY SET TO RECAPTURE ENGLAND
- Pope Benedict XVI will be visiting the U.K. September 16-19th.
Government and church leaders are already welcoming the upcoming
event. Significantly, the visit comes less than a year after
December 1, 2009, when the Treaty of Lisbon went into effect
in the European Union. One of the major features of the Treaty
is that it introduces a single, legal personality for the
Union. Consequently, the U.K. has to a large extent been
subsumed under the legal entity of the European Union. Now, in
our time, 477 years after King Henry VIII opened the conflict
with the Papacy, the Pope comes officially as the head of a sovereign
civil state to address British civil society at both houses of
Parliament in Westminster Hall. Equally important, he comes as
head of the Roman Catholic Church in order to re-establish Roman
Catholicism as the religion of U.K. This upcoming event needs
to be seen in its proper context, which is what we have done
in the article entitled, Papacy Set to Recapture England.

- UFOs BUZZ VATICAN
- UFOs have been spotted hovering above Vatican City once again.
And this time the reports are coming from not only drivers and
tourists, but the guards to the Vatican themselves. The recent
streak of UFOs appearing over the Vatican has been like nothing
ever seen before in Rome. And not only were these objects seen,
they were also recorded on film by numerous different sources.
- Since Vatican City is its own nation, it has its own defending
army including several dedicated artillery operators who are
trained in observing what an object in the sky is doing, shaped
like, and the nature of its presence. Artillery troops on the
ground were able to observe not only one, but a formation of
three objects moving at the same time. At first it was suggested
these may be the corners of a triangular craft as there were
three lights, but the objects weren't equidistant from one another.
And though they did move in formation, sometimes very uniformed
in fashion, they did not maintain their distances consistently
throughout their being sighted. The incident lasted for several
minutes starting some time after 4:00 in the morning. Some of
the best footage to come from the incident so far is from three
men who observed the object and were members of Santa Barbara's
antiaircraft group. Though the footage was taken on a cell phone,
it is a bit better than most cell phone ufo footage. Of course
this isn't saying much considering you cannot distinguish much
more than the fact that the objects are luminescent and roughly
following one another in formation. Aside from this it's difficult
to get any more details from the guards' video.

- FROM SEEDLINGS TO SERVINGS: 11-YEAR-OLD GROWS TONS OF VEGGIES
FOR THE HOMELESS
BY DIANE HERBST | JULY 15, 2010 - It all
began in third grade, when Katie Stagliano's 40-pound cabbage
fed 275 homeless people. Now, Katie's six gardens have produced
over 4,000 pounds of vegetables to feed the needy.
When Katie Stagliano was in third grade, she planted a cabbage
in her family's small garden. When it grew to an astounding 40
pounds, she donated it to a soup kitchen, where it was made into
meals for 275 people (with the help of ham and rice). "I
thought, 'Wow, with that one cabbage I helped feed that many
people?'" says Katie, now entering sixth grade. "I
could do much more than that."
So Katie started planting vegetable gardens as part of her nonprofit
Katie's Krops - she has six right now - including one the length
of a football field at her school in her hometown of Summerville,
S.C. Classmates, her family and other people in the community
help plant and water, and Bonnie Plants donates seedlings. This
past year, Katie took her commitment to a new level: she has
given soup kitchens over 2,000 pounds of lettuce, tomatoes and
other vegetables. Katie and her helpers are now harvesting the
spring planting, and another 1,200 pounds will be donated by
"She just walks in like a proud little girl with her treasures
in her arm," says Sue Hanshaw, CEO of Tricounty Family Ministries,
the soup kitchen in Charleston, S.C. where Katie first brought
her 40-pound crucifer. "I love what she exudes, caring for
others. It's made a big impact on a lot of people."
Says Elois Mackey, 49, a formerly homeless mother of two who
has received a weekly vegetable delivery from Katie since September:
"She is showing that you can help other people no matter
how young you are. I love the vegetables she brings." Continued:

- JIHAD WATCH JULY 2010
- Iran's supreme leader tells Muslims to fight American and
A prime example of the uselessness of the term "terrorism."
First, it is a method, and not an ideology, and thus lends itself
to broad applications without describing the reason for the supposed
"terrorism." And allegations of terrorism are quite
easy to come by -- one will recall the charges of "religious
terrorism" and "moral rape" leveled against Christians
accused of proselytizing in Morocco.
- Accusations of terrorism in contexts like this are ultimately
instruments of moral equivalence, with the aim of painting non-Muslim
parties as the aggressors using an emotionally charged term with
a conveniently elastic application. Never mind Iran's own track
record in the region, of course.
- "Iran tells Muslims to fight 'savage' US, British terrorism,"
from Agence France-Presse, July 21 (thanks to Twostellas):
- Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Wednesday called
on Muslims to fight the "blind and savage terrorism"
fueled by U.S. and Britain, whom he blamed for deadly bombings
of an Iranian mosque.
"In our region ... the blind and savage terrorism is borne
out of the evil policies of the United States, Britain and their
state and non-state mercenaries," Khamenei said in a statement
marking the seventh day of mourning for victims of the bombings
of a Shiite mosque in southeastern Iran.
"All Muslims are required to combat and confront this evil
and sinister offspring which is the epitome of corruption on
earth and of waging war against God," the all-powerful Khamenei
said in the statement read out on state television...
"Corruption on earth and of waging war against God"
is a quotation of Qur'an 5:33 (the lesser-known and very nasty
followup to apologists' favorite go-to verse in 5:32): "The
only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger
and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will
be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate
sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will
be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs
will be an awful doom." http://www.jihadwatch.org/2010/07/
- OBAMA ADVISER: U.S. IDEAL PLACE FOR RENEWAL OF ISLAM'
Religion aide closely linked to imam seeking to build Ground
July 20, 2010 - By Aaron Klein - WorldNetDaily - A religion adviser
to President Obama has close ties to the imam who wants to build
a 13-story Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero. The two
have been documented together discussing America as "the
ideal place for a renewal of Islam," WND has learned.
- In February, Obama named a Chicago Muslim, Eboo Patel, to
his Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
Patel is the founder and executive director of Chicago-based
Interfaith Youth Core, which says it promotes pluralism by teaming
people of different faiths on service projects.
- Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the controversial Muslim leader behind
the plan to build the Islamic center and mosque two blocks from
Ground Zero, wrote the afterword to Patel's 2006 book, "Building
the Interfaith Youth Movement: Beyond Dialogue to Action."
- Patel is listed as one of 15 "Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow"
on the website for the American Society for the Advancement of
Muslims, or ASAM, which is led by Rauf.
- In Patel's 2007 book, "Saving Each Other, Saving Ourselves,"
he recounts discussing with Rauf the future of Islam in the U.S.
- THE POWER & THE PAIN OF TRUE PROPHETIC PREACHING
- By J. Lee Grady. - No true message from God will flow through
a person who is smug and self-confident. If you want to speak
for Him, prepare to die! I did it again. This past Sunday I stood
in a pulpit, looked out over a congregation of mostly strangers,
cleared the lump in my throat and preached a message that the
Lord had laid on my heart from the Bible. Thousands of men and
women speak publicly like this every week. It's what preachers
do. No big deal.
- But even though I speak often, I've found that preaching
the gospel is one of the most difficult, frightening and painful
assignments anyone could possibly attempt. It is not fun. I feel
as though I die a thousand deaths right before I do it, and I
die several more times after I go home and evaluate what happened.
- After one particularly discouraging experience in which an
audience stared coldly at me with their arms folded, I determined
that preaching surely must not be my calling. I shared my struggle
with an older pastor.
- "Sometimes I feel really discouraged after I speak,"
I told my friend. "Does that ever happen to you?" I
was sure he would counsel me to stop preaching, since it obviously
was not my spiritual gift. Continued:
- THE NEW W0RLD ORDER
- (page 42) The New World Order is entirely Masonic, and its
religion is Masonic. You look on the one dollar bill, and you
see the expression, "In God We Trust". You look to
the left of that expression, and you see which god they're talking
about. You see the pyramid, the Egyptian pyramid, the triangle
and the eye. And you see, as it were, rays of sunlight emanating
from that triangle.
- George Bush I referred to a thousand points of light. A thousand
points of light, this is Masonic light, the light of the Solar
Deity of Masonry, the Pagan Egyptian Solar Deity. As Albert Pike
says in his Morals and Dogma of Freemasonry, "Lucifer the
Light Bearer. Doubt it not." That's who they mean when they
say, "In God We Trust".
- In the name of combating terrorism, they will fully implement
martial law, which is coming in stages. In the U.S. Constitution,
the liberties of the Constitution have already been greatly nullified.
Then, those who are defined as "religious fanatics"
will be removed from their homes and will be sent into camps.
I already spoke about this in 1989 the "Executive Orders",
enacted by George Bush I, authorizing the government, in a state
of emergency, to confiscate all property, all vehicles, and to
round up the civilians and send them into camps. By Executive
Order they were given the force of law. This will be the persecution
of the Church in North America. And there will be the war.

- THE VATICAN CREATED ISLAM
- Deborah J. Greenhill neveshalom@... In 2001 I was at Hebrew
University in Jerusalem, doing research for my PhD thesis. I
came across a book whose contents were so dangerous, that they
keep it under lock and key to protect it. To see it, a person
provided the driver's license to the librarian, who returned
the license when she verified the book was safe after reading.
The translation was from an original circa 650AD. In that book
was an ancient witness of Islam's creator and how he started
Islam. It seems that the Vatican wanted to convert the population
of Jerusalem,which would put the holy sites under total rule
of the Vatican. It sent a priest to attempt the conversions,
and he showed some measure of success. When he returned to the
Vatican to claim his promised prize of territory and Cardinalship,
the Vatican reneged on its promise. This so angered this priest,
that he penned this testimony and the fact of his training Mahomet,
as leader of his converts. This was the seed that became Islam,
and Mahomet's name somehow morphed into Mohammed.
This is all I can remember of this subject, since it was not
my PhD field of expertise. There are several books in the Hebrew
University system that can verify this testimony.

- FOR CLERGY, LOSING FAITH CAN BE AN OCCUPATIONAL HAZARD

- NEW YORK For some clergy, it is the problem that dares
not speak its name.
- Affected pastors say they cannot be themselves among their
congregations or colleagues, sometimes even with their own families.
It's a huge and burdensome secret with the potential to destroy
their careers, they say. They think they're not the only ones,
but feel terribly lonely.
- No, it's not some kind of sexual secret - it's loss of faith.
- Daniel C. Dennett, co-director of the Center for Cognitive
Studies at Tufts University outside Boston, and Linda LaScola,
a Washington-based clinical social worker, researcher and psychotherapist,
are the authors of a recent study, Preachers Who Are Not Believers,
in the journal Evolutionary Psychology.
