Leftist activists, politicians, and organizations assist this violence and jihad on free speech by calling all who openly criticize Islam of being guilty of “hate speech.”

On Sunday, July 25, a Christian preacher and brave critic of Islam, Hatun Tash, was stabbed by a terrorist at Speaker’s Corner in the United Kingdom. The Christian refugee from Turkey fled to Britain to escape persecution following her conversion from Islam to Christianity. Hatun was stabbed while wearing a Charlie Hebdo shirt.

A male wearing a large black hooded robe (thawb) punched and stabbed Hatun with a knife. The terrorist ran from the scene, dropping and leaving the knife behind. Police at the park chased down the terrorist, but it is unknown whether he has been apprehended. Hatun suffered wounds on her face and hands and can be seen in a video escorted by police into an ambulance.

Speakers’ Corner is an area in Hyde Park famous worldwide for open-air speeches and debates and is often used during rallies and protests because of its iconic status as a beacon for freedom of speech. Tash, who lived in an oppressive Muslim country for 27 years but now lives in the UK, often engages with Muslims at Speakers’ Corner and in mosques in “Christian-Muslim discussion.”

Hatun, the Christian ministry DCCI Ministries (Defend Christ Critique Islam), has been attending Speakers Corner for several years, preaching her Christian faith and boldly critiquing Islam. Unfortunately, throughout her time at the Corner, Hatun has suffered many threats and assaults by Islamic supremacists.

Hatun shines a spotlight on the stark difference between Muslim’s and Christians’ reactions to criticism and cartoons such as the Charlie Hebdo or Kurt Westergaard’s Danish ones about their religion. There were no violent protests, assassinations, or people forced to live under state protection for criticizing or poking fun of Christianity. Or even after the direct attack on its icons, such as with the government-subsidized “Piss Christ” art installation, a Catholic Crucifix in a jar of the artist’s urine.

On October 25, 2020, she was punched in the face and knocked unconscious by an Algerian Muslim migrant at Speakers Corner after showing a Charlie Hebdo cartoon of Muhammed, the Islamic Prophet. Hatun can be seen holding up the cartoon image in a video of the event while debating people. Shortly after that, she gets punched in the face.

At Speakers Corner on July 26, 2020, Hatun was physically assaulted by Muslims and dragged to the floor:

In August 2020, Hatun revealed during a live YouTube discussion with David Wood that UK police warned her that her life was in danger. This is called an “Osman warning” in the UK. It does not grant the recipient any special right or ability to defend themselves. But it seemingly does grant the police immunity from the responsibility to protect that person. Due to the Islamic threats to her life, she was instructed it was too dangerous for her to go to Speakers’ Corner anymore.

Despite the warnings, unintimidated, Hatun went to Speakers Corner on September 13, 2020. She believes that the Muslims are making threats to have the police stop her from preaching at Speakers’ Corner and spreading the word of God. Because of Hatun’s bravery and ministry, many Muslims have converted to Christianity.

Police forced Hatun to leave Speakers’ Corner, claiming it was for her own safety, and warned she would be arrested if she returned. But, instead of police removing and arresting the Muslims threatening her life, they targeted the innocent Christian preacher. In addition, the police enforced sharia law at Speakers’ Corner and acted to protect Islam from criticism. You can watch the full video footage here.

Freedom of Expression

As reported repeatedly by RAIR Foundation USA, “Muslims have put the free world on notice: if you insult Muhammad, Islam, their holy books, or even fail to consider Islamic law (Sharia) in all things, we will harm you.” As Muhammad stated, “Whoever curses a Prophet, kill him. Whoever curses my Companions, beat him.”

After the 2015 Charlie Hebdo Muslim terrorist attacks rocked France, any writings or words critical of Islam make anyone a target for assassination attempts and intimidation campaigns. Since the Hebdo attacks, the magazine survivors remain under police protection. 

Even slight accusations of alleged Islamophobia by the left and Muslims have resulted in citizens being slaughtered, living in hiding, losing their careers, and living with targets on their backs throughout the West.

The goal of the left and Islam is to force all of the world’s people to submit to their ideology. “Submission” is the proper translation of the word “Islam.” Submission will be accomplished through force or by voluntary conversion.

Leftist activists, politicians, and organizations assist this violence and jihad on free speech by calling all who openly criticize Islam of being guilty of “hate speech.” This is a secular equivalent of “blasphemy” and is working its way into Western law.

Ex-Muslim and former communist Ridvan Aydemir, known as the ‘Apostate Prophet,’ slammed those who justify and incite violence against critics of Islam like Hatun Tash,

I’m not sure if everyone is aware of this but people who keep calling her and others like her names and keep calling people enemies of Islam are responsible for this. Stop calling people enemies of Islam. Stop justifying violence and punishments against people who do not agree with Islam, who leave Islam, who criticize Islam who offend Islam. If you think such brutal hate and violence is justified against people who disagree with your religion or who hurt your poor feelings then you are in the wrong place you should get the fuck out and live in some different country.

Hatun continues to show the world how intolerant and dangerous Islam is to a liberal and free nation. She has made it her life’s mission to spread the word of God and preach the Gospel to Muslims despite death threats and attempts on her life. Tash has also made the freedom of speech a driving cause, using her own experience to warn about what everyone in the West will face if we continue to surrender to Islam and its politically correct allies.

Loudoun County, VIRGINIA Churches Obeying God Rather Than Virginia

It happened in Jerusalem and it was the greatest blow struck in the ancient world on behalf of the establishment of individual liberty when Peter and the other apostles replied to the order of the Jewish authorities to shut up about the recently executed Jesus.

“We must obey God rather than men,” they said, according to Acts 5:29.

There is nothing else said or done in the ancient world, not in Rome or Athens or anywhere else, that so clearly established that the state is not the ultimate authority and is in fact subordinate to God.

You want to trace the path that led to the “inalienable rights” of the Declaration of Independence? You gotta start with this courageous statement by Peter and the other apostles.

Of course, shortly after uttering those words, the apostles were flogged for their efforts to proclaim that Jesus Christ had been crucified dead and buried, then resurrected as proof that He is exactly what He claimed to be, God Incarnate.

RecommendedVirginia Forces Christian Ministries to Adopt ‘Government Ideology’ or Pay $100K

The state never gives up its presumption of ultimate authority easily and those floggings were succeeded by a dreary succession down through the centuries of persecution, including far more cruel and horrific beheadings, burnings at the stake, and drawing and quartering of Christians who refused to bow down to any but the sovereign Lord.

They don’t face such severe trials in Loudoun County, Virginia, not yet anyway, but Christians there must cope with a new law that constitutes nothing short of official persecution. And they are doing something about it, going to court to challenge the Virginia Values Act (VVA) in the Loudoun County Circuit Court. The case is Calvary Road Baptist Church v. Herring.

What is so bad about the VVA? According to Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), whose lawyers are in court on behalf of a coalition of local churches and faith-based groups, the VVA, the law:

Compels churches, religious schools, and Christian ministries to hire employees who do not share their stated beliefs on marriage, sexuality, and gender identity. A companion law requires the ministries and others like them to include in employee health care plans coverage for sex reassignment and “gender-affirming” surgeries that run contrary to their beliefs. It also prohibits the ministries from offering sex-specific classes for parenting, Christian discipleship, and sports.

The VVA’s most prominent advocate is Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, the liberal Democrat made famous for his collegiate exploits wearing blackface on campus social occasions. Were Northam a Republican who did those things, he would no longer be Virginia’s chief executive, having been run out of office by Cancel Culture’s cacophony of enforcers of contemporary secular progressive orthodoxy.

The ADF barristers have quite an enviable record on behalf of religious freedom, having won 12 significant Supreme Court victories in recent years. They sound confident about this case, too:

“Religious organizations are free to make employment decisions without fear of government punishment, yet a Virginia law is violating this protected freedom by requiring them to abandon their beliefs or pay a devastating price,” ADF Senior Counsel Denise Harle said in a statement announcing the suit against the VVA.

“Virginia communities benefit greatly from the services provided by churches and faith-based schools and nonprofits, and the commonwealth must respect their right—just like anyone else’s—to continue operating by their own internal policies and codes of conduct about life, marriage, and sexuality,” she continued.

Similarly, ADF’s Kevin Theriot, who is vice president of ADF’s Center for Life, declared in the same statement:

Being able to freely live and work according to one’s beliefs is fundamental to who we are as Americans and is protected by the Constitution. What we’re seeing in Virginia, however, are government officials trying to control churches and religious groups and force them to abandon their convictions. The commonwealth has no business dictating how a faith-based organization should handle its employment decisions.

As it happens, there is no predicting how a Virginia state court will rule on such issues these days, but if ADF takes this one to the federal level, odds are quite positive, thanks in no small part to a recent decision by the federal Appeals Court for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago.

There, the judges reversed an appellate panel’s prior decision against the Archbishop of Chicago and Saint Andrew the Apostle Parish in Calumet City, Illinois. The lower court had agreed the Catholic church could not fire former music director Sandor Demkovich.

Demkovich claimed he was terminated because he is gay and married to another gay man, and that he was the victim of a hostile work environment stemming from the same factors.

Demkovich lost because the court ruled, a ruling in his favor “would not only undercut a religious organization’s constitutionally protected relationship with its ministers, but also cause civil intrusion into, and excessive entanglement with, the religious sphere.” The kind of intrusion and entanglement that is barred by the First Amendment.

“Worship is sacred. That’s why worship leaders who select and perform elements of worship are ministers of the faith, conveying its teachings to the faithful,” said Daniel Blomberg, senior counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which also has an enviable litigation record on behalf of religious freedom.

RecommendedLawsuit: ‘I Won’t Let the State Force Me to Express Messages That Contradict My Beliefs’

“That’s also why the church — not the state — gets to make sure that its music ministers are directing its congregation in a way that’s faithful to its beliefs,” Blomberg said.

Between the Seventh Circuit opinion, multiple recent opinions in the U.S. Supreme Court, and an impressive record of litigation compiled by ADF, defenders of the VVA might be well advised to back off in Loudoun County. Their vessel has D-E-F-E-A-T written all over it.

Pastor Received 1,500 Death Threats Over COVID Resistance

Pastor Received 1,500 Death Threats Over COVID Resistance

BY BOB ADELMANN

Pastor Brian Gibson, a graduate of Oral Roberts University and founder of HIS Church in Owensboro, Kentucky, has a target on his back. In an interview on Epoch TV’s Crossroads program last Thursday he said he’s being targeted “just for being a vocal proponent of the First Amendment … just for being someone who supported President Trump, and someone who spoke out actively.”

He added:

I’ve received closed to 1,500 death threats. People broke into my home, kicked my gate down, hacked all of our accounts.

It’s amazing what they can do and how coordinated some of these intimidation rings can really be. I think I underestimated what that would really be until it happened to me.  

He was forced to move when thugs started intimidating his children, but they found his new location and continued the harassment.

Gibson gained national attention and notoriety back in January for telling the truth about how COVID restrictions, mandates, and lockdowns were greatly infringing upon precious rights guaranteed by the U. S. Constitution. He told NTD’s Focus Talk:

Whenever you watch the church being shut down, you watch the freedom of speech being taken away, you watch the censorship, you watch the ability to assemble together being threatened in the name of COVID.

He then added a phrase that rang all across the internet: “The Constitution has no COVID clause!”

He explained:

The first thing that’s listed there … is the freedom of religion. If it falls, and the First Amendment falls, the rest of the Constitution falls like dominos.

He noted the root cause of the collectivist cancer eating away at America’s foundations: “I think America needs to wake up on who has the mind of your children. Because, if you can shape the mind of a child, you can shape the mind of the future of our nation.” To restore the country’s culture, said Gibson, “We have to first start with the children.”

Gibson founded a group called Peaceably Gather where like-minded pastors could learn how to resist the COVID cancel culture, rapidly reaching more than 5,000 pastors with the message of resistance.

He sees the battle as “a fight for the heart and soul of America,” explaining on the Peaceably Gather website:

There is a constitutional crisis occurring right before our very eyes in America. Many of the governors of various states see the freedom of religion as something they can step over anytime they choose.

In this instance they’ve used public health and safety to silence the church. Opposing scientific opinions have been silenced, big tech is censoring conservative thought.

The last thing that can defeat this giant is the local church.

If we allow the forces that want to take away our first amendment rights to win in America we will be no different than China, Iran, or Vietnam.

Our children and our grandchildren will be raised in a nation where the government controls every aspect of their lives. They will live in a society where Caesar not Christ is God. America would become like any other communistic nation on the earth — totalitarian, ungodly, and impoverished.

The media made much of a selfie Gibson took of himself and another man who later attended the January 6 Capitol incident. The media, said Gibson, tried to frame him by saying that he was “one of the masterminds of the Capitol siege. I wasn’t in the Capitol, but I think what they do when they create these hit pieces, they’re trying to build a narrative against you: No. 1, with the public, and No. 2, they want a legal case against you. The mainstream media works to try to spin the narrative, and to spin public opinion before they’ll ever file charges.”

Gibson says the church in America has become soft and decadent and doesn’t want to give up its privileges by taking controversial stands:

In America we’ve become so comfortable. We don’t want to give up any of our comforts for real truth and real conviction anymore. And that’s why the church remained silent during the lockdowns [with notable exceptions]. So that’s why so many pastors didn’t speak up and push back.

Gibson said believers and pastors have to begin to stand against the encroaching tyranny:

Stand up for what you believe in. Don’t be afraid. Continue to love your enemies, but stand your ground. I think that’s what’s really needed in America.

Stop being afraid of what somebody might do to you. The high cost of living is potentially dying. I don’t want to die. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t have martyr’s complex. I want to live a long life, be an old man, see all of my kids’ kids.

But if somebody has such a grip of fear around you that you can’t live or be who you are, what good is living?

Coffee County, TN: After A two-year investigation for criticizing Islam, Christian DA cleared by Board of Professional Responsibility

Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott, the appointed Casada-Jones Special Prosecutor, says he uses "prosecutorial discretion" to refuse to recognize same-sex marriage despite a Supreme Court ruling, and encourages county clerks not to either.

Freedom of speech? What’s that? If Northcott had said likened being a Christian to being part of the KKK or Aryan Nation, do you think he would have been investigated for two years? Of course not. He would have been made chairman of the local Critical Race Theory implementation board.

“Tennessee D.A. investigated for comments on homosexuality, Islam has case dismissed,” by Adrian Mojica, Fox17, July 12, 2021:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.–A Tennessee District Attorney previously under fire for comments on homosexuality and Islam has been cleared by the Board of Professional Responsibility (BPR) following a two year investigation.

Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott was under investigation following comments in 2019 in which Northcott wrote on social media Islam was a “evil, violent and against God’s truth” and likened being Muslim to “being part of the KKK, Aryan Nation, etc.”…

Northcott, who refused to be censured by the BPR and challenged the ruling, now says the matter has been dropped after he was granted a motion to dismiss the complaint against him without appeal from the BPR. Northcott says he stands by his comments in a public statement, calling the investigation against him an “attack.” “It was alleged that I am unfit to serve as District Attorney and to remain an attorney in Tennessee because I taught the Word of God regarding homosexuality from the pulpit of a church in Houston, Texas at a Bible conference primarily for pastors sponsored by a seminary as well as my expressing my thological [sic] belief regarding Islam while commenting on another individual’s Facebook post in my personal capacity,” Northcott writes. “Amazingly, this simple exercising of my God-given, constitutionally protected rights so upset certain groups of people that I made local, national, and international news and had to fight their efforts to have me disbarred for the last two years.”

After fighting the investigation successfully, Northcott says the BPR never alleged the mishandling of a specific case and admitted under oath…they could not find a single case that I or my office mishandled.”…

How to HEAL yourself and the world by embracing God’s most precious gifts~JILL BIDEN TOURS SOUTHERN REPUBLICAN STATES TO SELL VACCINES

(Natural News) Consider these questions: Why do people subject themselves to potentially deadly spike protein injections? Why do people engage in self-destructive substance abuse habits? Why do so many people who believe in “science” feel their own lives are worthless and meaningless?

The real answers to these questions, it turns out, aren’t found in the individual actions of people, but rather their core self-image.

People who think they are worthless, pointless and useless tend to pursue self-destructive habits and activities. This includes vaccine suicide, eating junk foods, and substance abuse.

On the other hand, people who have a healthy self-image and a sense of self-worth tend to pursue activities and life choices that protect and enhance their health on all levels: Physical, mental and spiritual.

Key question: What formed these core beliefs? And how can a negative self-image be reversed and transformed into a positive self-image?

How can people come to recognize they are worthy of life?

Society programs people to believe they are worthless

We live in a sick, twisted society that celebrates the mass killing of unborn babies. To any living child paying attention, the message is clear: Young human lives are worthless.

Television ads and propaganda messages encourage people to destroy their health with soda, junk foods and mind-altering prescription medications. Governments demand you submit to acting as a human guinea pig by injecting yourself with experimental spike protein “vaccines.” And so-called “science” claims that life is nothing but a random accident with no purpose.

Any person who falls for these sick, twisted beliefs and propaganda efforts will of course think their own life is meaningless and worthless. It’s not a surprise when they submit to vaccine suicide, junk food self-harm, abusive relationships or substance addictions, because these are the things they have come to believe they “deserve.”

It only takes a simple realization to recognize your very existence has a divine purpose

Despite all the negative programming and suicide messaging from a twisted society, it only takes a simple realization to flip the switch from “worthless” to “divine.” And that profound realization centers around the recognition of conscious awareness and free will, both of which are gifts from God.

Self-awareness is self-evident and requires no external evidence to validate because it is instantly and forever true in a person’s own direct experience. This is a kind of “direct proof” that consciousness is real. Since consciousness is self-awareness, the moment of recognition of one’s own self-awareness is instant proof that consciousness is real.

Free will is a natural extension of this consciousness. Since we live in a universe constructed with a preset flow of time, we are able to both observe and initiate cause-and-effect phenomena, thereby allowing us to learn about the consequences of actions pursued within the construct of free will, all inside a universe with laws that were designed to create these opportunities for gaining life experience.

Realize this: God created the cosmos, then granted us the gifts of life, consciousness and free will in order to learn, grow and expand our understanding of the universe. All of these realizations are self-evident to anyone who ponders these topics and recognizes their own conscious awareness.

The existence of all this means that none of it came into being by accident. God didn’t create the universe to be pointless and autonomous. You aren’t a puppet controlled by God, either. The fact that you have free will means God has a purpose for your life, and your life isn’t merely some random accident as described by “science.” The universe was designed with a purpose, and you were brought into this realm to discover and fulfill your divine purpose within this cosmic construct.

While society, pop culture, left-wing propaganda and “science” tells you that your life is meaningless and worthless, God gave you the ability to reject that false programming, and that the real you is here by the grace of God, with a purpose that is aligned with God’s very existence (and the existence of the entire cosmos itself).

In other words, you were granted the gift of life by the same Creator who made the stars and galaxies as well as all the laws of physics that govern cause and effect in the universe. Your existence here is, by definition, important and intelligently designed.

Discard any beliefs that attempt to lead you astray from this profound principle. Do not be swayed into self-destruction by a society dominated by satanic influences and negative energies. Explore and embrace your true purpose, and protect your body, mind and spirit from the forces of destruction that now dominate society.

Having already convinced most blue states to commit vaccine suicide, Jill Biden now targets RED states to make sure conservatives are exterminated, too

(Natural News) Including the swing states her husband’s CCP regime stole, Jill “Joe” Biden is touring conservative states to help make the upcoming vaccine-induced death wave look more balanced between red and blue states. Though it’s mostly Democrats who rushed to the vaccine outlets to get jabbed with blood-clotting, heart inflaming “inoculations,” it’s still very important to the psychos in Washington DC that they “infect” as many people as possible, including those darn Republicans and Constitutionalists, before the attempted communist takeover of America.

Just four days after the utter failure of the Biden/CCP regime to meet their 70 percent “threshold” for fully vaccinated Americans by July 4th, Jill went “on the road” to coerce more morons into getting the deadly Covid jabs. The fake president’s wife has been crisscrossing the southern US, pleading with the unvaccinated to get the blood-clotting jabs that are all considered a “medical experiment” under “emergency use authorization only,” well, how long does this emergency last?

The vaccinated are dying off by the thousands from the vaccines and from getting Covid after inoculation for it. How ironic. Still, Jill Biden pleads with the dumbed-down Americans in the Red states who just seem “too lazy” to make the journey to a death-jab-outlet at a vacant mall, or too ignorant of the “benefits” of the deadly lab-made jabs (which are none).

US Covid-vaccinated percentage still under 50%, leaving too many Americans with guns and land that the CDC/CCP can’t kill off so easily

Far past conspiracy theories, we have entered into an age of science-backed bio-terrorism, and it’s all being committed by Americans against Americans. A war is being fought with dirty vaccines, and not one single vaccinated person can see it.

Now, the politicians at the top are working their “playbook” in plain sight, and it must be pointed out in order to save anyone left who is even slightly considering the Covid jabs. There’s one clear message for you: don’t. Jill Biden herself is proof of that. Why else would she tour all the Red states and beg conservatives to get those jabs? It’s all about depopulation, gun control, forced vaccination, and then a communist takeover. Guard your land and your guns, because they’re coming for it all, door-to-door.

Welcome to the Jill Biden Dirty Vaccine Promotion Tour

(for Red states and stolen swing states that all really voted for Trump)

Jill’s Tour states and the fully-vaccinated-for-Covid ratios by state:

Georgia: 37%

Alabama: 33%

Texas: 48%

Mississippi: 33%

Tennessee: 37%

Arizona: 43%

Florida: 46%

Missouri: 39%

West Virginia: 37%

It’s looking dismal for the Biden regime and their puppets at the top. It’s so dismal that she’s coercing high school students, the last people on Earth who need a vaccination for the Covid. Guess the Biden regime wants to get rid of those upcoming voters in Red states before the next big rigged election.

Allopathic medicine and vaccines are purposely designed in laboratories to make you sick and stupid

Hey Jill, your tour isn’t working. Go home. Weird how the “terrorists” used to be those people who flew planes into the World Trade Center. Now it’s bio-terrorists who push deadly vaccines on Americans. There’s always a “boogeyman” for the USA to hide from. Now that boogeyman is Mr. Covid and his gang of variants, and Jill Biden is on tour trying to let everyone know that she cares about you being able to hide from this evil boogeyman named Covid. Wear your mask and get your shots, everybody, especially all you Trump supporters (that’s their plan).

We already know about the mercury in flu shots that damages the brain. We already know the Covid vaccines cause blood clots and deadly heart inflammation. The vaccines sell themselves because they keep you dumb and toxic, unable to think things through and use common sense or critical thinking when it comes to disease “treatments” and viral “threats.” The Bidens are targeting high school girls now because the Covid vaccines destroy reproduction possibilities, just look at the clinical science that proves it (China Flu jabs terminate four out of every five pregnancies).

The “Covid Team” of Jill Biden will be circling back (with Strike Force military-style forced injections at gunpoint) to the Red states to see if any Conservatives are dumb enough to believe her and go get stabbed with mRNA and protein payload injections that have killed over 7,000 people already, including previously healthy adults, teens, children and babies. If, when she comes back around, you haven’t been vaccinated, be ready for armed Federal agents with FEMA goons to knock on your door “to protect you.”

Covid-19 vaccines are not safe or effective; they’re unsafe and defective. Visit CovidVaccineReactions.com if you already got a dirty jab or two and feel like you’re sick and dying.

Gardella said the Catholic Church — along with Christian churches in general — has lost its moral authority and often sacrifices the gospel of Jesus to follow the secular culture.

Dutch, “Christian” City in Iowa Allows “Trans” Teen Girl to Go Topless in Public Pool

Forget indecent-exposure laws. If one disturbed mid-teen girl “identifies” as a boy and wants to walk around topless in front of actual boys and men, she must be allowed to. That’s what happened, too, at a city aquatic center in a small Iowa municipality — and it has created an uproar.

Moreover, the precedent set, now a second “transgender”-oriented incident has been reported at the same facility.

The scene of the scene was city-owned Pella Aquatic Center (PAC) in the Dutch, Christian Reformed city of Pella, known as America’s Dutch treasure (population approximately 10,000).

As The Iowa Standard’s Jacob Hall wrote June 26, the teen girl was allowed to parade about “topless and use the men’s locker rooms with grown men and boys of all ages, exposing her breasts because she identified as a male.”

“The incident happened on June 16,” he continued. “According to two people at the aquatic center, the incident did indeed happen and the aquatic center policy allows it to happen.”

“‘When brought to the facility’s attention, they explained there was nothing they could do,’” Hall reports one concerned Pella resident as saying. “‘That state law protects this biological female, allowing her to walk around indecently exposing herself to all the families enjoying the facility. The facility is afraid if they act and require her to cover herself, they will face legal backlash. I find it appalling that this would actually be state law.’”

It may be appalling, but it’s hardly inexplicable. Pella Mayor Don DeWaard, responding to a citizen at a special meeting held by the Pella City Council, said “that the facility adheres to a 2007 state law outlawing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, and there is no specific City Code or policy in place as it relates to the swimming facility,” reported KNIA-KRLS June 30.

Two-thousand-seven was the year that Democrats, already owning Iowa’s governorship, seized the state’s legislature as well. This gave them complete control of the government, allowing them to enact anything they wished.

It’s yet another example of something I often mention, Duke’s First Rule of Politics. To wit: “Under representative government, people do not get what they want.”

“They get what they vote for.”

The point is that Iowans no doubt didn’t want the MUSS (Made-up Sexual Status or “transgender”) policy in question; they surely voted for Democrats in 2006 based on meat-and-potato issues — e.g., economic matters. But we must always read the “fine print” in politics because voting for a party is a package deal. You may — if you’re lucky (or unlucky) — get what’s advertised and on the label, but you’ll surely get what’s on the hard-to-read list of ingredients.

Of course, the Republicans now control Iowa and can rescind the MUSS-insanity law in question if they, for once, can show that the business of conservatives isn’t just to conserve leftists’ mistakes. (In other words, don’t hold your breath waiting.)

The Pella-pool-prurience problem isn’t going away, either. Note that I spoke to Hall today, and he confirmed reports that two other MUSS-oriented individuals showed up at the PAC on July 2. They appeared to just be trying to “make a point,” he said, which would place them in the category of MUSS activists; also, there is a question as to whether or not they indecently exposed themselves.  

Whatever the case, Hall also informed that the July 2 incident led to immediate employee resignations. This manpower shortage would explain, he stated, why the PAC announced July 3 that its outdoor pool would be closed that day — on a beautiful July 4 weekend.

What’s more, this isn’t Pella’s only MUSS problem. “There have also been several incidents where a biological female, with full biological genitalia, has tried urinating in the urinal, fully exposed, next to the boys in the boys’ bathrooms” at Pella High School, the aforementioned local resident told Hall. “Where does this stop? Am I going to have to worry if a man identifies as a gorilla and shows up at the store with nothing on, but because that’s what makes him feel normal, we’re supposed to accept that?”

The school district responded, claiming the urinal allegation is “not accurate.” Hall states, however, that multiple witnesses have said that girls are using the boys’ restroom at the High School.

For its part, the City of Pella doesn’t seem very sympathetic to residents concerned about propriety. It said in a statement that the “City has reviewed the [PAC] matter with legal counsel and no further action will be taken. The City considers this matter concluded.”

Of course, if the city fathers had greater principle and a bit more imagination, more might be left to the imagination at their pool. For example, here’s one possible workaround: Enact a local law stating that you must wear a top if you have mammary glands.

This should hardly be viewed as “discrimination” that violates state law. After all, the issue currently is that since men don’t have to wear tops and MUSS women identify as male, you’re engaging in illegal discrimination if you don’t treat them as you do “other” men. Delineation based on anatomy avoids this problem.

(This said, since Iowa law also bans “sex” discrimination, the mentality allowing the MUSS girl to go topless should dictate that all women could do likewise. Otherwise, a stricter dress standard is being applied to a “protected class,” females. This is a good reason to reconsider all anti-discrimination law.)

Yet if the Pella incident inspires enough controversy, what’s perhaps more likely is that all pool patrons, including men and boys, will be forced to cover their tops.

Regardless, stopgap measures won’t remedy root causes. In the comments on the PAC Facebook page, some respondents opposed to the PAC indecency nonetheless stress that they take no issue with people’s “identities.” But embracing this perspective is to lose the battle before it has even begun.

Remember that the “official” MUSS position is that if a woman identifies as a man (or vice versa), she is a man, is to be considered a man, and must be treated precisely as a man would — period. There is no compromise. This is what you’re enabling when you accept the MUSS premise.

The real solution is to understand that the MUSS agenda is unscientific (as I explained here), unhealthful for those it purports to help, and immoral. Compromise won’t help because insofar as normalizing the abnormal goes, you can’t accept just half a mental disorder.

Pope Francis: ‘Tear Down the Walls’ against Islam!

Only your walls, not his.

Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

Pope Francis wants any and all walls, real or figurative, that stand between the West and Islam broken down immediately—or so he’s constantly saying.

Most recently, on Sunday, June 13, 2021, he called for the “growth of a more supportive humanity that tears down the wall of indifference.”  This was spoken in the context of urging Europeans to take in more illegally arrived Muslim migrants.

Earlier, in March 2019, when asked  “a question about migration in general and about U.S. President Donald Trump’s then threat to shut down the southern border with Mexico,” the pope pontificated in platitudes: “Builders of walls,” he said, “be they made of razor wire or bricks, will end up becoming prisoners of the walls they build….  With fear, we will not move forward, with walls, we will remain closed within these walls.”

Less than a week before that, Francis lectured the mayor of Rome about the need to be more welcoming to Muslim migrants. “Rome,” he declared, “a hospitable city, is called to face this epochal challenge [floods of Muslim migrants demanding entry] in the wake of its noble history; to use its energies to welcome and integrate, to transform tensions and problems into opportunities for meeting and growth.”

“Rome,” he exulted, “city of bridges, never walls!”

The grand irony of all this is that Pope Francis lives in the only state to be surrounded by walls—Vatican City—and most of these bastions were erected to ward off ongoing Islamic invasions.

In 846, for example, a Muslim fleet from North Africa consisting of 73 ships and 11,000 Muslims, landed in Ostia near Rome.  Muslim merchants who frequently visited Italy had provided them with precise intelligence that made the raid a success.  Although they were unable to breach the preexisting walls of the Eternal City, they sacked and despoiled the surrounding countryside, including—to the consternation of Christendom—the venerated and centuries-old basilicas of St. Peter and St. Paul.  The Muslim invaders desecrated the tombs of the revered apostles and stripped them of all their treasures.

Pope Leo IV (847-855) responded by building many more walls, including fifteen bastions along the right bank of the Tiber River, the mouth of which was forthwith closed with a chain to protect the sacred sites from further Muslim raids and desecrations.  Completed by 852, the walls were in places 40 feet high and 12 feet thick.

Further anticipating the crusades against Islam by over two centuries—and thus showing how they were a long time coming—Pope Leo (and after him Pope John VIII) offered the remission of sins for those Christians who died fighting Islamic invaders.  Such was the existential and ongoing danger Muslims referred to in contemporary sources as “Sons of Satan,” caused for Europe—more than two centuries before the First Crusade was launched in 1095.

Indeed, just three years after the initial Muslim invasion of Rome, “in 849 the Muslims attempted a new landing at Ostia; then, every year from around 857 on, they threatened the Roman seaboard,” explains French medieval historian C. E. Dufourcq:

In order to get rid of them, Pope John VIII  decided in 878 to promise them an annual payment [or jizya] of several thousand gold pieces; but this tribute of the Holy See to Islam seems to have been paid for only two years; and from time to time until the beginning of the tenth century, the Muslims reappeared at the mouth of the Tiber or along the coast nearby.

Today, many Muslims, not just of the ISIS-variety, continue to boast that Islam will conquer Rome, the only of five ancient apostolic sees never to have been subjugated by jihad (unlike Antioch, Alexandria, Jerusalem, and Constantinople). 

Similarly, many Muslims all throughout Europe continue exhibiting the same hostility and contempt for all things and persons non-Islamic, whether by vandalizing churches and breaking crosses or by raping “infidel” women as theirs by right

And that is the point that Pope Francis—whose own ancient city would never have lasted to the present if not for walls—misses: walls should only go down and bridges should only be extended when both parties are willing to live in amicable peace. Otherwise, they serve only to make the destructive work of those who have for centuries been trying to conquer and destroy in the name of Islam that much easier.

COMMUNIST Pope “FRANCIS” Scolds “Inflexible” Christians

Pope Francis: You Can Recognize False Christians by Their ‘Inflexibility’

Pope Francis talks to nine newly-ordained priests as they pose for a group photo, asking them them to take off their face mask, at the end of an ordination mass on April 25, 2021 at St. Peter's Basilica in The Vatican, during which Pope Francis ordained nine new priests for …

ROME — Pope Francis warned Wednesday against Christians who are overly attached to tradition and “disturb communities” through their inflexibility.

There is no shortage of preachers today who, especially through the new means of communication, “disturb communities,” the pope said during his weekly General Audience. “They present themselves not primarily to announce the Gospel of God who loves men in Jesus, Crucified and Risen, but to insist, as true ‘keepers of the truth’ — so they call themselves — on the best way to be Christians.”

This sort of people “strongly affirm that the true Christianity is the one they adhere to, often identified with certain forms of the past and that the solution to the crises of today is to go back so as not to lose the genuineness of the faith,” Francis said.

As he has done on numerous occasions, the pope warned against conservative Christians who cling to past traditions and do not accept the freedom the gospel offers.

Today “there is a temptation to close oneself up in some of the certainties acquired in past traditions,” the pontiff said. “But how can we recognize these people? For example, one of the traces of this way of proceeding is inflexibility.”

“Faced with the preaching of the Gospel that makes us free, that makes us joyful, these people are rigid,” he said. “Always the rigidity: you must do this, you must do that… Inflexibility is typical of these people.”

The Apostle Paul indicated the way forward is “the liberating and ever-new path of Jesus, Crucified and Risen,” Francis said.

It is “the path of proclamation, which is achieved through humility and fraternity — the new preachers do not know what humility is, what fraternity is,” he asserted.

“It is the path of meek and obedient trust — the new preachers know neither meekness nor obedience,” he concluded. “And this meek and obedient way leads forward in the certainty that the Holy Spirit works in the Church in every age.”

 

D.C. Elites Weaponize the Tax Code Against Christians

BY TYLER O'NEIL

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/columns/tyler-o-neil/2021/06/25/washington-elites-are-weaponizing-the-tax-code-against-christians-and-its-only-going-to-get-worse-n1456980;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

A decade ago, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) under President Barack Obama targeted tea party organizations for extra scrutiny and even denial of tax-exempt status. Democrats and the IRS seem determined to be even more brazen under Joe Biden.

As PJ Media’s Mark Tapscott reported last week, the IRS denied a 501(c)(3) tax exemption to the Texas-based group Christians Engaged because its Bible-based Christian teachings “are typically affiliated with the [Republican] party and candidates.”

This denial is absurd on many levels. First Liberty Institute appealed the rejection, highlighting three key errors: there is no requirement that tax-exempt organizations be neutral on public policy issues; Christians Engaged does not serve private, nonexempt purposes just because of its Christian worldview; and the rejection violated the First Amendment’s Free Speech, Free Exercise, and Establishment clauses through viewpoint discrimination and religious discrimination.

It seems the IRS has yet to respond to First Liberty’s substantive complaints.

Meanwhile, a sitting Democratic politician threatened to target the Roman Catholic Church’s tax-exempt status if the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) drafts rules on Communion that he doesn’t like.

Specifically, USCCB passed a resolution to draft a rule suggesting whether or not priests should serve Communion to politicians who advocate for moral evils that explicitly contradict Catholic teaching. The measure will not be binding under Canon Law, but it will likely send an important message to faithful Catholics.

The measure is controversial because Biden, who advocates for the killing of unborn babies, the erosion of religious freedom, and the redefinition of marriage and sexuality, nonetheless identifies as Catholic and attends mass.

Biden doesn’t just support liberal policies — he has embraced radical positions that involve outright hostility not just to Catholic teaching but to the Catholic Church itself. Biden has fought to resurrect an Obama-era HHS rule that would force Roman Catholic doctors to perform transgender surgery, in violation of both Catholic teaching on sexuality and the Hippocratic oath. He vigorously supports the Equality Act, which explicitly guts the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Biden has also excluded the Hyde Amendment from his federal budget proposal, fighting to force pro-life taxpayers to unwittingly fund abortion.

The Catholic Church has every right to defend its own doctrines against Biden, and the USCCB document may send that very message. If it does, at least one Democrat in Congress has suggested that its tax-exempt status may be revoked.

“If they’re going to politically weaponize religion by ‘rebuking’ Democrats who support women’s reproductive choice, then a ‘rebuke’ of their tax-exempt status may be in order,” Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.) threatened.

“Unfortunately, the IRS seems to agree with Representative Huffman, as it demonstrated recently by denying a religious organization’s tax exemption because, as its letter stated, ‘[B]ible teachings are typically affiliated with the [Republican] party.’ But the tax code must not become a weapon for Washington elites to punish churches who hold religious beliefs they dislike,” First Liberty Counsel Lea Patterson told PJ Media on Thursday.

Democrats have already supported a similar weaponization of the tax code. In a congressional hearing in 2019, Democrats cited the far-Left scandal-plagued Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in demanding that the IRS remove tax-exempt status from “hate groups.” The SPLC routinely brands mainstream conservative and Christian organizations “hate groups” due to their opposition to the Left’s narrative and activism on LGBT issues, Islam, and immigration.

In the wake of a scandal involving claims of racial discrimination and sexual harassment that saw the SPLC fire its co-founder and lose its president and legal director, a former SPLC employee outed the “hate-group list” as a “masterstroke of [the founder]’s marketing talents.” This seemed to confirm claims that the hate group list is a cynical fundraising scheme, rather than a legitimate report.

The “hate group” accusation also gives the SPLC a way to destroy its political enemies. Former SPLC spokesman Mark Potok also revealed an animus against the organizations on the list. He said the SPLC’s “aim in life” is to “destroy these groups.” In 2012, a deranged man targeted the Christian non-profit organization the Family Research Council (FRC), aiming to kill everyone in the building and smear a Chick-fil-A sandwich into his victims’ faces. He told the FBI he targeted FRC due to the SPLC’s “hate group” accusation. The SPLC has not dropped that accusation.

Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) led the fight against tax-exempt status for “hate groups,” and she recently led her fellow Democrats to publicly praise the SPLC’s recent “hate group” report.

From the IRS to Jared Huffman to Judy Chu, the Left is gunning for the tax-exempt status of churches and Christian organizations that refuse to toe the Left’s line on abortion and LGBT issues. Americans who value religious freedom cannot stand for this.

(Christian Headlines) — Last week, the Biden Department of Justice filed a brief in federal court opposing a West Virginia law that prohibits biological boys from playing on girls’ teams, saying it violates federal law and the U.S. Constitution.

The law, H.B. 3293, prohibits high school and college sports teams that are “designated for female[s]” from being open to the male sex. The bill says that “classification of teams according to biological sex is necessary to promote equal athletic opportunities for the female sex.”

But in a Statement of Interest brief filed in federal court, the Department of Justice opposed the law. The DOJ sided with an 11-year-old biological male who identifies as female and who wants to compete on middle school girls’ cross-country and track teams. The 11-year-old athlete “is a girl, not a boy,” the DOJ brief says.

Pastors Should Lead Fight Against Evil Deep State

Rumble — Pastors, ministry leaders and the Church should be on the frontlines of the fight against the diabolical Deep State and its evil agenda, says The New American magazine Senior Editor Alex Newman in this episode of Behind The Deep State after returning from the Liberty Pastors Summit. Alex begins by talking about the Black Robe Regiment, the American pastors who helped lead the War for Independence against the tyrannical British regime. At the Liberty Pastors Summit, hundreds of pastors and their wives were educated from a biblical perspective about globalism, the Deep State, medicine, history, climate, law, Critical Race Theory, education, and so much more. This is hopefully the start of a new Black Robe Regiment against the wicked forces working to undermine God, the Bible, America, and liberty.

Recently, his son was a student at Gordon College. Please do not think that the problems described below are within the confines of Gordon College. Many Christian colleges and universities are going down the same path. For an explanation of Critical Race Theory, read our July 2020 report and also S is for Social Justice The Language of Today’s Cultural “Revolution.” If you have children or grandchildren attending or about to attend any college or university in this country, please help equip them before they enter. Otherwise, you could end up witnessing a disastrous transformation in your young people. Worth noting, Gordon College has been on the Lighthouse Trails contemplative college list for several years. There is a connection between contemplative spirituality and the current “social justice” paradigm shift (one led to the next).

August 2020 to May 2021

Manny Silva

By Manny Silva
In late August of 2020, just before classes started, a racially charged incident occurred, although the actual perpetrator to this day has not been found. During the course of the semester, two more incidents occurred, but no one was ever found to be responsible.

The first incident: A black student leader had used tape in a dorm hallway to spell out
BLM.” Later that morning, it was discovered that it was changed to say “ALM” (for all lives matter apparently). The very next day, Saturday, about 100 students marched to the President’s personal residence to protest. All this triggered a host of other activities, such as BLM signs posted all over the campus, as well as student sit-ins and protests, with demands for justice for people of color.

Even before these incidents, there were already a number of activities scheduled that were themed with
Black Lives Matter ideas. Dance parties, “educational” meetings, and seminars with speakers who had
backgrounds in Critical Race Theory.

The administration moved quickly to condemn acts of racism towards people of color. But the rest
of the semester would result in the very same social-justice warriors becoming the intimidators of
white students, or students of color who rejected the BLM movement. The administration was almost
completely silent about this particular problem.

Two other incidents happened that were made prominent. Some words were written on the wall next to
an Asian student with racist comments. And then later in the semester, a t-shirt with a BLM-type
slogan was defaced with a racist slur.

Again, to this day, the culprits have never been apprehended. But an interesting note: the same student
leader whose sign was defaced in the first incident, is the same black student who posted a violent and
racist rant against students and anyone else who supported President Trump. He also used profanity in
describing them. That student, months later, was depicted in an official Gordon College post as a model
Christian student.

The atmosphere in the first semester was one of racial tension. Chapel services deteriorated to being
platforms for social justice and rants against “white privilege.” Students looking for uplifting and
biblical messages were seeing very little of that and have been thoroughly discouraged.

Concerned Gordon Parents and the Letter to the Trustees

Finally, after conversations with various parents, I helped to form a group called Concerned Gordon
College Parents on November 7, 2020. In a few days, we had over 150 members. We strategized and
shared information for several months. During the first semester, various parents sent letters of concern
to President Lindsay. Others sent letters or met personally with Dan Tymann, Director of Student Life. I
met with Dan Tymann during the semester. Finally, a preliminary letter was drafted, and after other
parents edited and finalized it, we sent it to the Board of Trustees on February 2, 2021. (The Chairman
sent a response to the parents, which is one of the documents I have provided [see document links at bottom of this post].

The second semester began, and it was worse than the first semester, as far as guest chapel and convocation
speakers. February was National Black History month, and it was a constant parade of CRT-type
speakers, culminating in some of the worst proponents of CRT ideology. These speakers included 2—
Marla Fredericks and Jemar Tisby. Another document that I’ve included is a review of Tisby’s ideology.
Not one speaker throughout the semester was ever invited who was a strong opponent of Critical
Race Theory. This was one of our major concerns, that Gordon College is actively promoting the
CRT ideology, not just allowing for discussion and scholarly debate.

Other Issues to Be Concerned About

Please note that there are other concerning problems that have been on the rise for some time now, including the
LGBT activism on campus becoming a serious problem. At this writing, there is at least one current professor
who is a promoter of LGBT ideas. The homosexuality activism was also noted in the letter to the Board of
Trustees. It included reference to very inappropriate plays performed on campus in 2019, including a play that
depicted lesbian relationships. Another play included very profane language. The following two links are relevant:

already concerned with this appointment, and in our limited research, many of us believe that Dr. Hammond
may be more “woke” than President Lindsay. Time will tell, and I am sure we will find out more of his plans for
the coming year—although he must be aware by now of the Shalom Plan and all the issues that have occurred in
the past year. The following article may be of interest, and it references Dr. Hammond’s involvement in the
firing of a veteran professor at Taylor University.: Taylor University Fires Tenured Professor Over Little Hitler Video:

Francis Chan’s Dangerous Path to “Unity” and a Eucharistic Christ

BY L. SHARP

SEE: https://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/newsletters/2021/newsletter20210623.htm;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

I am writing to address two related topics:

1)    Francis Chan’s new book released 4/1/21 titled Until Unity

2)    Francis Chan’s conversation with Hank Hanegraaff and KP Yohannan regarding Chan’s changing views on the so-called “Eucharist” (Aug. 2020 video on Hank Hanegraaff’s program).

I.  Francis Chan’s website about his new book Until Unity

Francis Chan released his new book in April 2021 titled Until Unity. Why does this matter? Sadly, there is growing evidence that Chan has slowly turned away from the Bible as the source of truth and doctrine to church tradition, the opinions of men, and experiences to reformulate his theology.

Francis Chan’s own website explains his new book (see https://untilunitybook.com/):

CHURCH UNITY IS NOT OPTIONAL

. . . New York Times–bestselling author Francis Chan challenges us to see what keeps us from being unified as Christians across denominations and cultural differences—and why it needs to change.

. . . It’s clear from Scripture that God desires unity for His Church. Unity is what Jesus prays for, what He commands, and what He says will be the chief argument for unbelieving people coming to know God.

But if unity is that important to the heart of God, and that critical to the mission of the church, then why isn’t it something the Church fiercely fights for and passionately pursues?

We divide easily because we love shallowly.

. . . Francis Chan [says] doctrine is not at the root of most division [emphasis added].

The main problem is the shallowness or non-existence of our love for each other . . . Those who are believers will hear the call and be eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit. This will be messy and painful, but we cannot allow this to discourage us from giving everything we have to the pursuit of a unified, restored Bride.

My comments:

Chan sidesteps the issue of doctrine (in the issue of “unity”) and claims the main problem is “the shallowness or non-existence of our love for each other,” so he can base his whole argument for “unity” solely on his “love” (or lack thereof) premise. If he would admit that doctrine does divide, then in his attempt to tell us how “unity” is achieved, he would have to deal with doctrine at some level. Yet, he dismisses doctrine from the start so he can talk about “love” or lack thereof and its role in achieving or not achieving “unity” and skip discussing specific doctrines(s) altogether.

What does the Bible say about the importance of doctrine?

2 Timothy 3:16 – All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Titus 2:1 – But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:

1 John 4:1 – Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Hebrews 13:9 – Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

Ephesians 4:14 – That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

Titus 1:9 – Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

2 Timothy 2:15 – Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Further Comment on Chan’s new book:

The dedication of Chan’s book reads: “This book is dedicated to the followers of Jesus from various denominations who have forgiven me for my arrogance and divisiveness over the years.”

II. Francis Chan’s March 11, 2021 YouTube video about his new book Until Unity

On Francis Chan’s Mar.11, 2021 short YouTube video advertising his new book, he talks about the need for unity, and at the very end, he quotes Eph.4:11-13, but he leaves out the next 3 verses (vs.14-16), which defines what unity is!

Here is the full context of how the Bible defines “unity” in Ephesians 4:1-16:

1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,

2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;

3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

8 Wherefore he saith, ‘When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?

10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)’

11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

Here are the verses Francis Chan left out in his video–Vs.14-16—

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Here are some observations about “unity” from Eph.4:13-15 (left out by Francis Chan):

1)    According to verses 13 and 14, the goal of biblical unity is so we would “be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;”

2)    According to verse 15, biblical unity/”unity of the faith, involves “speaking the truth in love,” not just to “love” (in an experiential sense). “Speaking the truth in love,” the verse goes on, so that we may “grow up into him in all things.” Biblical unity involves “speaking the truth in love,” and by this, we grow up spiritually. Love without truth is not biblical love. And truth is about what the Bible teaches (i.e. doctrine).

III. Francis Chan, Hank Hanegraaff, KP Yohannan and the “Eucharist”

An Aug.18, 2020 video titled, “Is Christ Present in the Eucharist” reveals more of Francis Chan’s slide away from the truth of the Bible and his associations with men who have also turned away from the Bible.

At the urging of Hank Hanegraaff and KP Yohannan, Chan was challenged to reevaluate his view of church history and of communion (their meaning – Eucharist) verified in the video.

In the video, Francis Chan talks about reevaluating his view of communion, or the so-called Eucharist, and Hank Hanegraaff and KP Yohannan briefly discuss how they themselves formulated their current views about the Eucharist. Before discussing the contents of this Aug.18, 2020 video, I wanted to familiarize you with Hank Hanegraaff and KP Yohannan.

1)Hank Hanegraaff

Hank Hanegraaff is known to millions through his former radio program, “The Bible Answer Man.” He converted to Eastern Orthodoxy in April of 2017 in the Saint Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. His former radio program “The Bible Answer Man” has now been changed to “Hank Unplugged,” and in his latest book (released in 2019 by Thomas Nelson Publishers) titled Truth Matters, Life Matters More, he explains his Eastern Orthodox conversion (see link: https://www.thomasnelson.com/9780785216063/truth-matters-life-matters-more/).

The list of those who endorsed Hanegraaff’s book include Catholics, Eastern Orthodox folks, and most notably, Scott Hahn, Ph.D., Chair of Biblical Theology and the New Evangelization at Franciscan University of Steubenville. [Hahn, who converted from Protestantism to Catholicism, is discussed in Roger Oakland’s book, Another Jesus: The eucharist Christ and the new evangelization.]

The buzzword: “New Evangelization” is defined by Lighthouse Trails writer Kevin Reeves as: “A program by the Catholic Church designed to win the world to Christ [the Catholic Eucharistic christ, that is], with the Eucharist as the focal point.”

Please see Lighthouse Trails booklet by Roger Oakland titled: The New Evangelization From Rome

2)KP Yohannan

He is the founder and director of Gospel for Asia (GFA). According to his own website (see link: https://kpyohannan.org/about-kp-yohannan/), he has written over 200 books in Asia, and 11 in the U.S.

Lighthouse Trails has confirmed KP Yohannan’s slide into contemplative spirituality (a spiritual outlook that incorporates a New Age style mystical meditation) via his 2020 book: Never Give Up.

That book, by the way, was also endorsed by Hank Hanegraaff.

IV.  August 18, 2020 YouTube video: “Is Christ Present in the Eucharist?” With Francis Chan, Hank Hanegraaff, and KP Yohannan

The Aug.18, 2020 video “Is Christ Present in the Eucharist” reveals just how much Chan has turned away from the Bible he claims he believes in to church tradition and the opinions of men. Also, this trio together are contributing to the demonic momentum toward the movement of biblical Christians into an unbiblical view of communion (what is being called the Eucharist).

1)    “Eucharist”? Why is Francis Chan even calling the communion “the Eucharist”?

Kevin Reeves, in his booklet: C is for Catholicism, defines Eucharist as: “the sacrament of the partaking of the Communion wafer and wine consecrated by the priest during the [Catholic] Mass. Believed to impart special grace, because the recipient is said to be eating and drinking the actual body and blood of Christ.”

At the urging of Hank Hanegraaff and KP Yohannan, Chan was challenged to reevaluate his view of church history and of communion (i..e., the Eucharist).

2)What did the August 2020  video reveal?

Francis Chan on the so-called “Eucharist”

He seems to think he has misjudged folks who believe in “transubstantiation.” What is transubstantiation? Kevin Reeves defines “transubstantiation” as: “The doctrine that asserts that during the Mass, the Host (the communion wafer) and the communion wine are transformed miraculously into the literal body and blood of Christ.”

Chan ends up opening the door about his view on the Eucharist and admits: “[I] don’t know where I land yet” (23:26 minute mark). He states that he “used to” (keywords are “used to”) view those who believed in transubstantiation as “almost silly” or “heretical” (2:07-2:26 minute mark) but not anymore apparently.

*Note: on p. 101 of his new book: Until Unity, Chan states: “I am currently 90 percent sure that I have been wrong about my belief that Christ is not present in the Eucharist” [emphasis added]

3)    Final thoughts about Francis Chan, the “Eucharist” and his new book: Until Unity:

May we pray for Francis Chan, that God would open his eyes to the Enemy’s deceptions. And, may God help rescue those sheep who are following Francis Chan and being led down a deceptive path of the Enemy.

God is Faithful and True, and His Word is true,
