If You Don't Love OUR God, He'll Torture You Until You Do

08.13.11
Questions have also arisen over Governor Perry’s close ties to the radical wing of the Christian evangelical movement. On Saturday, Perry helped organize and spoke at a controversial seven-hour Christian prayer rally in Houston called "The Response: A Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis."
GOV. RICK PERRY: Father, our heart breaks for America. We see discord at home. We see fear in the marketplace. We see anger in the halls of government. And as a nation, we have forgotten who made us, who protects us, who blesses us. And for that, we cry out for Your forgiveness.
The Book of Joel describes a crippling drought and economic crisis—sound familiar?—in the land of Judah. The calamities, in Joel’s time and ours, are “sent by God to cause a wicked, oppressive, and rebellious nation to repent,” Bickle told his students.

To secure God's blessing, Joel commands the people to gather in “sacred assembly” to pray, fast, and repent.... that if America didn’t return to biblical values and support Israel God would cause a “tumbling of the economy and dark days will come,” according to Charisma.
From an article called "Rick Perry's Army of God" in the Texas Observer about Governor Rick Perry's being backed by a cult of extreme Pentecostals in his run for the WH.

Another Bible-Thumping Texas Governor Christian Zionist who wants to be president? Jesus H. Christ, wasn't one enough?
The Texas Observer has just published an explosive new article titled "Rick Perry’s Army of God." It exposes how a group of radical Christians and self-proclaimed prophets from a little-known movement known as New Apostolic Reformation have been quietly pushing for Perry to run for president.
From a "Democracy Now" interview with the author of the article, Forrest Wilder, a staff reporter at the Texas Observer.

The New Apostolic Reformation & Rick Perry (Part 1 of 2)

The Rachel Maddow Show, MSNBC, 8-10-2011


I gave up on organized religion a long time ago, since it seemed to cause more problems than it solved. But I still remember being taught as a child that God was the source of all love and we were his children and he wanted us to be happy.

That Jesus Christ came to Earth to bring a gospel of love of thy fellow man, that a GOOD Christian help feed the hungry; sheltered the homeless and ministered to the sick. I don't recall anything being said about Christians worrying about Wall Street, which I believe is the domain of another being, but that's another story.

That "Love Thy Neighbor" narrative seems to have been tossed overboard by this new generation of 'Gawd' fearing Christians who mix religion and politics to advance political agendas mostly hatched in Israel.

These 'Christians' avoid talking about JC's "Sermon on the Mount," where he gave some beautiful advice on how to take care of and love people.

They cherry-pick select quotes from the hellfire and damnation portion of the Old Testament, scaring the hell out of people to enact private agendas. And believe me, it ain't about feeding the hungry masses.

More from "Rick Perry's Army of God:"
Their beliefs can tend toward the bizarre. Some consider Freemasonry a “demonic stronghold” tantamount to witchcraft. The Democratic Party, one prominent member believes, is controlled by Jezebel and three lesser demons. Some prophets even claim to have seen demons at public meetings. They’ve taken biblical literalism to an extreme. In Texas, they engage in elaborate ceremonies involving branding irons, plumb lines and stakes inscribed with biblical passages driven into the earth of every Texas county.

If they simply professed unusual beliefs, movement leaders wouldn’t be remarkable. But what makes the New Apostolic Reformation movement so potent is its growing fascination with infiltrating politics and government. The new prophets and apostles believe Christians—certain Christians—are destined to not just take “dominion” over government, but stealthily climb to the commanding heights of what they term the “Seven Mountains” of society, including the media and the arts and entertainment world. They believe they’re intended to lord over it all. As a first step, they’re leading an “army of God” to commandeer civilian government.
There's another group of power-hungry religious whackos already in charge of the media, the entertainment world and our government that might not care for competition.

Or maybe they're the ones financing this nonsense?

Got no time or money to "feed the hungry; sheltered the homeless and ministered to the sick," costs too damned much. Gotta spend that money on killing dark-skinned people around the world in God's name!

More from that "Democracy Now" interview with the Texas Observer’s Forrest Wilder.
One official endorser of the Response prayer gathering was Cindy Jacobs, the self-declared Christian prophet. Earlier this year, she made headlines when she recorded a video declaring a connection between the repeal of "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" and the sudden death of thousands of blackbirds in Arkansas.

And, you know, I mean, it’s—some of this—some of their prophecies are very specific. I mean, she has also said that she predicted the tsunamis in Japan, and not just that, but that that happened because the Japanese hadn’t sufficiently come to Christianity, so, in essence, God was punishing them. Peter Wagner, the founder of the movement, for example, has said that he supernaturally—when he was in Germany in 2001, God acted through him to end mad cow disease in Germany. So they actually—they think that they have some supernatural abilities, at least as God works through them, to do things in what they call "the natural."
Guess flag burning and abortion don't have the 'sizzle' need to distract voters from the REAL issues in the upcoming 2012 elections, but gays and lesbians do?

There's some type of 'mad cow' disease here in the USA that has crossed the animal-human barrier and is infecting American brains by the thousands.

Here's one video on the self-proclaimed 'prophet' and friend of 'Slick Rick' Perry, Cindy Jacobs.

Cindy Jacobs says that birds and fish may be dying in large numbers because of the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.


And another:

Cindy Jacobs and her friends worship false idol in hopes that Jesus will wear a flag pin and give them money.



Couldn't find an Internet link to the "New Apostolic Reformation," movement, guess they think the 'Net is Satan' playground?

Only found this page by the loony Cindy Jacobs:

History | Generals.org

But you can go to this link and spend a chunk of money to get some DVD's where those 'prophets' will explain what it's all about. The mailing address is in Hawaii, sure must be rough being a 'prophet' these days!

DEAR Lord! That Cindy person is loonier than the proverbial toon! How is it some of these folks escape the asylums, or the streets, and end up on public stage conning? Must be who you know....

Every once in awhile I need to be pinched and reminded of just how way out there the others can go, and she is beyond the beyond. The terrifying thing is, there are lots of hers running around there propheting / profiting from the truly confused who form their flocks.

Really good piece however, Greg. I have been hearing buzz about this Perry guy for some time now and he is not necessarily loved in his own state. He seems to be coated in snake oil....

He is pure Rothschildlandia candidate. He has that sleek, self satisfied, hard eyed stare, the great hair, fine suits and smooth tongue. It is in their eyes that you can see the ones who have that extra pat on the back as they enter the game.He has that look as if he is a shoe in.

OK Rick or Michelle or Sarah? Or Barry? sighs, you need to boot em all out Greg.

Perry would be right at home, working at a used car lot.

I think this very ugly woman (Cindy with the annoying, hair-raising, voice)is simply jealous that no one wants to f*ck her.

And, yes, Greg, Perry has the perfect "slimy used car salesman" look, doesn't he?

Hi Greg,

What is with the mad cow state of Texas? She Keeps churning out one mad cow after another... didn't America had enough with bush?

slick perry is a total slimeball, Sistah Noor is absolutely correct. Don't forget there is another rick in the GOP presidential list - rick santorum. He is another slimy bastard.

Cindy Jacobs says that birds and fish may be dying in large numbers because of the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
Hmmm ....

Worth checking out whatever happened to this "suga daddy":

Anti-gay marriage lawmaker 'arranged' tryst with MALE teen seeking 'sugga daddy' on Craigslist

An Indiana lawmaker and gay marriage foe has been roped into a gay sex scandal after he was reportedly caught responding to a Craigslist ad. The Indianapolis Star reports that emails suggest Republican Rep Phillip Hinkle offered Kameryn Gibson $140 for 'for a really good time.'

Mr Gibson had posted a Craiglist ad that said 'I need a sugga daddy.'

Rep Hinkle, who boasts that he co-sponsored the creation of 'In God we trust' license plates in Indiana, has voted in favor of a gay marriage ban.

Opps .... NO more of fresh chikkin dinner for G_D's BFF hinkle!

Oh speaking of cindy, she looks like real life version of Strangers With Candy.

Greg Bacon said...

Thought that 'Craigslist' had dropped their Sex Wanted or Provided ads.

Guess not.

Republican Rep Phillip Hinkle offered Kameryn Gibson $140 for 'for a really good time

Is it just me, or does it seem that there are far more Republicans than Dems getting caught with their pants down, so to speak, wanting to get popped in the keister?

musique said...

Correct Greg. rethuglican hypocrisy make 'em stand out as they thump Bible during the day but at night, they are all for chasing male burritos!

Speaking of the demoncrats, remember jim mcgreevey? No one can top his!

On the afternoon of August 12, 2004, McGreevey coupled the announcement of his decision to resign with a public declaration of his homosexuality and an admission to having had an extramarital affair with a man, Golan Cipel, an Israeli citizen and veteran of the Israeli Defense Forces, whom McGreevey appointed New Jersey homeland security adviser. Cipel, who had joined the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1994 as Chief Information Officer at the Consulate General of Israel in New York, subsequently left the United States and returned to Israel after their affair was revealed. McGreevey was the first and, to date, the only openly gay state governor in United States history.

Liberal media hardly covers anything when a dem is involved in a scandal. Media hardly covered Portland,OR mayor sam adams' scandal:

Portland Mayor Sam Adams, the first openly gay mayor of a major U.S. city whose first term in office was overshadowed by his admittance of a pre-election lie regarding a relationship with a young male intern, says he will not seek a second term as mayor.
.......
The mayor admitted to lying about a relationship he had in 2005 with Beau Breedlove just days after Adams was sworn in as mayor, a legislative intern who Adams claimed was 18 at the time. But some said Breedlove was only 17, making their relationship illegal.

sam adams is partnered with a zuckerman.

I have long said that there is a trinity of control in place, overseeing the masses. It is Government, Science, and Religion. It is a synchronized and redundant system, owned and run by old money families around the world. The only real purpose of any of it is to ensure that those with the gold are perpetually in charge of everything.
The greatest scam pulled by the Christian organization is in their offering of forgiveness because a figure told about in a set of stories 2 millenia ago was kidnapped, brutally tortured and unmercifully murdered right there in front of his supposed supporters. Once I put that into perspective, that a man had to be tortured and murdered in order for de facto religious authority to claim forgiveness of the very sins they have created today doesn't quite pass the test. It's like you need war to have peace, or you have to take away all freedom in order for people to appreciate it.
While there are many benefits of religion to those that participate in it, what it all ultimately comes down to is a passing off of liability to strangers, sometimes out of ignorance, sometimes out of laziness, many times out of fear, and most times because it's profitable for those in authority.
The only man with the power to forgive or to bless is one's self. No other person, no matter the ordainment, or calling, or lessons of divinity has even close to the spiritual authority one has over one's self. That is, until easily swindled simpletons hand over their sovereign spirit to frauds.
All arguments against these statements are embroiled in scripture. All scripture was written by strangers, long dead, and thus is complete hearsay. No one alive can prove any of it ever happened, regardless of claims of God telling them this or that. If God wanted any of us to know something, He would simply tell us directly, and would have no need for an intermediary. When the man goes into the tent, then the smoke appears for a time, and then he comes out proclaiming the will of God, the scam has begun.
The free man comes forth with full liability. He doesn't need strangers in suits promising things they could never and would never deliver on. Every time a man passes liability on to others, he is sacrificing his freedom, his security, and his God-given rights.

Greg Bacon said...

ChewyBees, I agree.

There's also the guilt aspect, that you're supposed to feel over someone dying for you 2,000 years ago for sins you haven't committed, at least not as a baby or child.

And that original sin thing, where one is supposed to feel bad about some fairy tale that was supposed to happen eons ago.

I take responsibility for my own actions and not others.

Being raised Catholic, going to Catholic school and Church, they brainwashed me early one into that 'guilt' thing and it took me years to flush that shit out of my system.

Even today, it occasionally rears its ugly head.

I find all Christians revolting,what a bunch of hypocritical self serving assholes.I've had Christians tell me I'm going to hell while they were sucking on a bottle of whiskey or smoking a joint.I tell them all I don't believe in Jewish
fairytales.I don't get my morality out of a book and don't want to be around people that do.For some reason that makes them want to kill you.Each and everyone of them can give a long list of reasons why they are going to heaven and your not.People like Rick Perry are the same type of assholes that brought about the dark ages in Europe.Anyone who doesn't believe as they do must die.People were tortured and burned at the stake under the guise of saving their souls from hell.That makes about as much sense as the stupidity Cindy Jacobs is spewing.
Rick Perry is just one more new world order asshole that's hoping to move up in the political world for the money and the power.
