Psalm 36

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David the servant of the LORD.

1 The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. 2 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful. 3 The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good. 4 He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.

P1050690

5 Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. 6 Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast. 7 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. 8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

Mournes

9 For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. 10 O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.

P1060177

11 Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me. 12 There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.

Defend US Constitution: STOP the Canadian invader !!

Born in Calgary in 1970.
Born in Calgary in 1970.

Defend the Constitution by writing to your state’s election officials with an official complaint regarding the unconstitutional candidacy of Raphael Cruz –

Sample letter:

Dear Election Official:

As a citizen and registered voter of this state I submit this complaint to your office concerning Mr Raphel Edward “Ted” Cruz, a candidate for US President running in the Republican Primary.

It is undisputed that Mr Cruz was born 12/22/1970 in Calgary, Canada, the son of a Cuban national father, and an American mother. A copy of his birth certificate can be viewed online at this address:

http://www.dallasnews.com/news/politics/headlines/20130818-ted-cruz-born-a-citizen-of-canada-under-the-countrys-immigration-rules.ece

By his patrimonial descent, Ted Cruz is a Cuban, and by his birth-country he is a Canadian. Nevertheless, it is reported that he claimed US Citizenship through his American mother and as of 2014 renounced his “dual” Canadian citizenship.

At birth Ted Cruz was subject to competing citizenship claims by Canada, Cuba, and the United States. Therefore he is not a 100% “natural born citizen” of the United States of America and therefore not eligible to be President under Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution. I hereby demand that your office immediately disqualify him from appearing on the election ballot for US President.

Sincerely,

[sign]

Serve the LORD

(Devon, UK)
(Devon, UK)

“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD,
choose you this day whom ye will serve;
whether the gods which your fathers served
that were on the other side of the flood,
or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell:
but as for me and my house,
we will serve the LORD.”

(Joshua 24:15)

Boldly Say

Saint Bartholomew the Apostle (Paolo Farinati – 1524-1606)

” Let your conversation be without covetousness;
and be content with such things as ye have:
for he hath said,
I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
So that we may boldly say,
The Lord is my helper,
and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”

Bible Wine

The old chestnut about how wine in the Bible was supposedly non-alcoholic keeps popping up; it’s nonsense designed to bolster a teetotaller heresy that has infected the Christian Church with a ridiculous food-based legalism.

These nuts have decided to read the word “juice” every time “wine” appears in the text: Anybody who brings pre-suppositions to the scriptural text is bound to get misled.

Let’s dispel their ignorant pre-suppositions with a little bit of vine horticulture and basic science.

Grapes grown on woody vines that are deciduous. This means the plant is seasonal – it loses its leaves every fall and goes dormant until the spring. In the spring its leaves appear and then small buds that will develop over the long summer into grapes. In the fall, around mid-September, the grapes are fully ripe and ready for harvesting.

Far-Right Far-Left

victory in Jesus Christ

” Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.” (Matthew 27:38)

Although those in the Far-Right spectrum may not realize or admit it, ultimately the Far-Right at its most extreme end seeks the dictatorship of God.

This end goal is obscured because it is marketed on the Right not religiously, but in terms of concepts, such as law, natural order, responsibility, and traditional values. Nevertheless, by the proxy of these concepts what the Far-Right wants is that the world be forced to conform to the natural principles of Divine Righteousness.

In contrast, those along the Far-Left readily admit their end goal, which is the dictatorship of Man.

But the Lefties have a harder time defining and implementing their goal since it can be approached from two different directions, individually or collectively. Permissiveness for unnatural and abhorrent vices and the allowing bizarre expressions of self-delusion gives individuals a dictatorship over their own lives; but if mankind in total is to be served collectively, then all individual rights must be sacrificed on the altar of service to mankind’s dictatorship in the collective sense, hence socialism and communism.

The left serves man and debases God from his rightful place and glory; this is why the left wing is of the devil.

For the far Right, the contradiction between the individual and the group is less problematic since the obligations of all are already orderly defined by God’s natural laws.

The Right-Left division could be set forth in the great commandments.

“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40) 

” And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” (Deuteronomy 6:5)

” ¶ Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.” (Leviticus 19:18)

The first commandment must come first, this is why the right wing is correct and not the left wing. Serving man with mercy and charity is only correct after God has first been loved and obeyed.

Judas Iscariot inverted these two commandments, and became the betrayer of Christ, when he became indignant that valuable perfume was squandered on Jesus rather than given to the poor. The gospels give Christ’s response:

Matthew 26:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
Mark 14:7 For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.
John 12:8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.

John explains Judas’ true motivation was not for the poor, but for himself:

” This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.” (John 12:6)

So with all Lefties – they speak of the collective but their true interest is only self.

Mankind is pulled in these two directions, right and left, by the correctness of the two great commandments because every heresy has to be based on some truth to give it a foothold in people’s minds.

The ultimate solution is the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to rule and reign as God’s right wing dictator – and secondarily as man’s left wing dictator. In Christ Jesus both absolute righteousness under God, and true mercy to all men, will find their correct order – with righteousness first. His kingdom is eternal.

” ¶ Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever. Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.” (1 Chronicles 29:10-12)

Psalm 145

” I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works. And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness. They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness. The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom. Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations. The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down. The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season. Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing. The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works. The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them. The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy. My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.” (Psalms 145:1-21)

” And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.” (Daniel 2:44)

Make Babylon Great Again

Las Huelgas Apocalypse 1220(In 1220 A.D. an illustrated Spanish commentary on Revelation shows Mystery Babylon as the Statue of Liberty on a spangled background that resembles the American flag … What are the odds?)

Donald Trump would be the 45th President of the USA.

Jeremiah 45 happens to say this:

“¶ Thus shalt thou say unto him, The LORD saith thus; Behold, that which I have built will I break down, and that which I have planted I will pluck up, even this whole land. {5} And seekest thou great things for thyself? seek them not: for, behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest.” (Jeremiah 45:4-5)

The word “great” is also found in Revelation 17,

“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. {6} And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” (Revelation 17:5-6)

The destruction of Babylon is described in Jeremiah 51-52,

“A sound of a cry cometh from Babylon, and great destruction from the land of the Chaldeans: {55} Because the LORD hath spoiled Babylon, and destroyed out of her the great voice; when her waves do roar like great waters, a noise of their voice is uttered:” (Jeremiah 51:54-55)

One year’s advance notice will be given to flee from Babylon before violence and civil war:

“My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the LORD. {46} And lest your heart faint, and ye fear for the rumour that shall be heard in the land; a rumour shall both come one year, and after that in another year shall come a rumour, and violence in the land, ruler against ruler.” (Jeremiah 51:45-46)

That signal is also described in Revelation 18,

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. {5} For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” (Revelation 18:4-5)

The timing appears to be around the time when the mark of the beast system is implemented:

“And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth … And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,” (Revelation 14:6-9)

Unfortunately, America is not going to be great much longer, it’s going to be destroyed.

 

Free Christians are Armed Christians

P1050334

An Act Declaring the Rights and Liberties of the Subject and Settling the Succession of the Crown” also known as the Bill of Rights of 1689:

Subjects’ Arms. That the Subjects which are Protestants may have Arms for their Defence suitable to their Conditions and as allowed by Law.

Freedom depends on armed freemen.

Buy yourself firearms for self-defence, buy enough ammo, and keep your powder dry!

(Luke 22:35-38) “And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing. Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end. And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.”

P1050248

Lefties like to say that our Constitutional rights are not absolute, for example, you can’t cry “fire!” in a crowded theatre. But this analysis is totally incorrect when it comes to the 2nd Amendment because it is contradicted by the very text of the Constitution  that says the right to keep and bear arms is an absolute right that “shall not be infringed” !!

No other Constitutional right, including free speech, has this expansive prohibition attached to it, that is “shall not be infringed” !!

Obey the Lord’s command to obtain weapons. Go buy yourself guns and ammo while you can. Don’t delay. Start with whatever small collection of arms your budget can afford.

And remember: Your life and liberty may soon depend on them!

Quote: “How we burned in the camps later …” by Solzhenitsyn

Fighting back in Luton

I’ve been to this place – it is near Luton international airport.

The town is scary – totally overrun with blacks and Moslems.

“Remember, O LORD, what is come upon us: consider, and behold our reproach. {2} Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens.” (Lamentations 5:1-2)

“[By faith they …] Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.” (Hebrews 11:34)

Deracinate

deracinateThe invented word “racism” used by Cultural Marxists for over the last century to bash all the people of the world with shame for loving their own people, seems to have its antonym in the storied word “deracinate” – meaning to pluck up by the roots. Deracinate is as old as modern English being used even by the bard Shakespeare:

The darnel, hemlock and rank fumitory
Doth root upon, while that the coulter rusts
That should deracinate such savagery

(Henry V, V,ii)

Commotion in the winds! frights, changes, horrors,
Divert and crack, rend and deracinate
The unity and married calm of states
Quite from their fixure!

Toilus and Cressida: I, iii

Evidently –racinate comes from “root” – hence our word “radish”.

etymonlineAnd so that betrays where “race” really comes from: race is roots. Apparently this obvious etymology connection is rejected by some modern linguists, but Johnson states it as a fact:

raceThe English word race comes from Latin “radice” meaning roots.

So to have “racism” is simply to acknowledge one’s roots. To deny your roots is to deracinate. And to be deracinated is to be destroyed.

The term “racism” is designed to do just that: destroy you. It’s a word to mock the natural descent of man (Genesis 10). By making it a scornful word they recruit men to deny themselves, and hence to destroy themselves.

It’s not the “racists” we need to worry about – it’s the deracinators.

rootremoverFor there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.” (Job 14:7-9)

Sanderson1611 attacks Eastern Orthodox Believers

Steven Anderson preaches against the Eastern Orthodox and Coptic churches:

My comments:

Anderson makes many good points in this sermon, but he didn’t get everything right.

His characterization of Shenouda, the Coptic pope, was rather uncharitable and ignorant. Shenouda led a nominally Christian church that has been greatly persecuted under the Islamic led government of Egypt. Shenouda suffered for the name of Christ with his flock and he was even exiled for many years from his homeland by the authorities. Jesus gave the church at Smyrna in Revelation 2:8-11 a pass because they suffered persecution, and we too should be slow to judge them. The Egyptian Christians have kept their faith despite centuries of Islamic domination and abuse. Yes, they certainly have some serious doctrinal problems, as Anderson points out, but this is not as bad as it seems because many have the reality of trusting in Christ. Shenouda’s theology is rather weak compared, for example, to Father Zakaria Bortos, a well-known Coptic Christian who is quite Evangelical and who has lead thousands of Moslems to Christ.

They are both Coptic – it is a wide range of Egyptian people who are held together by this identity against the Moslem majority. You don’t survive hundreds of years of persecution through mere ritual alone. Christian saints under persecution often are forced to meet and know their Saviour in reality, in sincerity, from the heart. We have no idea what this is like because we have had it so easy in the West. I would be inclined to trust the testimony of a persecuted Copt in Egypt who has been physically attacked for being a Christian that he really knows Jesus Christ before necessarily believing a coddled church-raised Baptist who merely parrots correct doctrine that he memorized since Sunday school.

You do not need to have 100% correct doctrine to be saved – you only need Jesus Christ the Saviour. Trusting water doesn’t save you – and neither does trusting Baptist doctrines. You have to trust Christ.

Catholic Seminarian admits he worships Lucifer !!

JOE-HESCHMEYERKansas blogger Joe Heschmeyer, a Roman Catholic seminary student, admits on his blog that he – along with the Pope – worships “Lucifer” who he claims is Jesus Christ.

Nowhere in Isaiah 14:12 does the Hebrew word for “star” – kochba – appear. The modern translations insert the word “star” into the text even though it is not there. The Hebrew word that is there – helel – by a study of etymology and cognates in many languages indicates it is related to the meaning light (e.g., helios (sun god – Greek), hell (light – German), hell (hellfire – English), etc). The AV translators correctly translated helel as a proper name conveying the similiar meaning of “shining one” – using the word for it that was earlier coined in Latin, “Lucifer”.

It is true that there has been confusion about this verse – but God has ended such confusion by giving us the King James Bible. It’s translation of Isaiah 14:12 is deeply resented by Luciferians who claim that it insults Lucifer, their god of light and wisdom, historically associated with the sun god and serpent who they believe was maligned by the Genesis account. Since Isaiah 14 has Lucifer cast out of heaven and thrown into hell – verse 15 – it’s humiliating to their ambitions. The passage refutes the Luciferians so they’ve targeted it for alteration.

They will claim it only speaks of an earthly ruler, and also try to replace “Lucifer” with “morning star”. This makes the passage seemingly about Jesus Christ because of cross-reference to 2 Peter 1:19 and Revelation 22:16.
(2 Peter 1:19) “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:”

(Revelation 22:16)I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

But Isaiah 14:12 is certainly not about Jesus Christ, it is about Satan’s fall, see:(Luke 10:18) “And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

So the cross-reference has to be eliminated. To equate Jesus Christ with that being cast out of heaven in Isaiah 14:12 is OBVIOUSLY wrong. To leave the cross-references in place constitutes a mistranslation. That is why the AV is correct and all the other versions that use “day star” are wrong. (Modern translations are myopic and stupid – they destroy all the cross-references that the Holy Ghost was diligent to put into the English AV text).

The priests of the Roman Catholic religion, before it took on an outwardly Christian guise in 313 A.D., have always worshipped the devils of the sun, moon, and stars. It is an ancient pagan cult that never died out – even though many lay Catholics have been kept in the dark and are blissfully unaware of it. These are Thyatira’s “depths of Satan” as mentioned in Revelation 2:24But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.” (Thyatira symbolizes Roman Catholicism historically in Church history).

The blogger at “Shameless Popery” is hopelessly naive – he’s actually claiming that it is a harmless thing to sing praises to Lucifer! This shows how subtle the devil is in tricking people into serving him. Romanism has so duped its unsaved followers that they will actually openly worship the devil in song and think nothing of it. And why should they? Their own pope condones the worship of Allah and Buddha.

(Exodus 34:14) “For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:”

(Deuteronomy 4:24) “For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.”

see: http://www.chick.com/ask/articles/lucifer.asp

= = =

ps – Is the graphic above too harsh? Why are people always quickly offended when we insult a man, but are flippant and insensitive with regard to the offence they cause Christ? The image is a joke – sort of. But doesn’t praising Lucifer and then pretending that that is actually Jesus’ name shows a real lack of fear and respect for our Great King?

pss- Godless Communist agitator Saul Alinsky dedicated his book “Rules for Radicals” to Lucifer – I don’t think he actually meant to say Jesus Christ.

Heschmeyer made the claim that Jerome’s Vulgate uses “lucifer” in Isaiah 14:12 for the planet venus, and that as a “quirk of history” Lucifer became a capitalized proper name for the devil in the passage because of the King James Bible’s borrowing of Jerome’s term. So he states that the poem sang to Lucifer by the Pope has nothing to do with the devil since it pre-dates the association: He writes, “Exultet is an ancient prayer (likely dating back to at least the sixth century), back before we mistakenly started treating “Lucifer” as a proper name for the devil.” 

This is wrong.

Several early church fathers wrote of Isaiah 14 and said that it referred to the devil’s name Lucifer before he became a fallen angel. This included the heretic Origen:

“Most evidently by these words is he shown to have fallen from heaven, who
formerly was Lucifer, and who used to arise in the morning. For if, as some think, he was a nature of darkness, how is Lucifer said to have existed before? Or how could he arise in the morning, who had in himself nothing of the light? Nay, even the Saviour Himself teaches us, saying of the devil, “Behold, I see Satan fallen from heaven like lightning.”
(Origen “De Principiis”, bk. 1, ch. On Rational Natures)

This was in the third century, long before the poem/song was written.

Around the fourth century St Augustine wrote,

“the Romans made an attempt to dedicate the star which we call Lucifer to the name and honour of Caesar. And this would, perhaps, have been done, and the name handed down to distant ages, only that his ancestress Venus had given her name to this star before him”
(Augustine, “On Christian Doctrine” ch. 21)

Yet in the same book Augustine wrote,

what is said in Isaiah, “How he is fallen from heaven, Lucifer, son of the morning! ” and the other statements of the context which, under the figure of the king of Babylon, are made about the same person, are of course to be understood of the devil;
(ibid, ch. 21)

Augustine and Jerome were contemporaries. Thus clearly the term Lucifer used by Jerome in Isaiah 14:12 was always a proper name that indicated the devil. It simultaneously happened to be a nick-name (e.g., “shiny one”) used to describe the planet that was already named Venus. That is the “quirk” of history.

Augustine also wrote:

A certain one was named Lucifer, who fell; for he was an angel and became a devil; and concerning him the Scripture said, “Lucifer, who did arise in the morning, fell” And why was he Lucifer? Because, being enlightened, he gave forth light. But for what reason did he become dark! Because he abode not in the truth.
(Augustine, Tractates on John, Tr. III)

Another contemporary and rival of Jerome, John Cassain, made the same statements concerning Lucifer being the devil (“Institutes of the Coenobia”, Book 12, Ch. 4, “How by reason of pride Lucifer was turned from an archangel into a devil.”).

Another quirk of history is that around the same time, there was a prominent Catholic Bishop unfortunately named “Lucifer” from Cagliari (who led the rabid faction that was fanatically intolerant toward allegedly heretical “Arians” (who refused to call Mary “God’s Mother”). The fact that this contemporary was also named “Lucifer” shows that the word was in fact a proper name – hence Jerome didn’t use it as a mere adjective either.

There’s the original Hebrew word that means “shiny” and it is used as a name in Isaiah 14:12. The corresponding Latin name for “shiny” in Latin was Lucifer – already used as such in Latin before Jerome come along. This name Lucifer happened to have also been a descriptive nickname at the time for referring to the “shiny” planet named Venus.

The theory that Lucifer is a mistake in Isaiah 14:12 is diabolical. The devil doesn’t want his name associated directly with being cast down into hell, he wants it rehabilitated to be something pleasant. Thus his translators have endeavoured to put the word”star” into the passage even though it doesn’t belong. This eliminates his name Lucifer, and creates blasphemous cross-references to the New Testament passages that refer instead to Jesus Christ.

By this trickery, the term Lucifer is no longer in the Bible identifying the devil – and now clowns like “shameless popery” and Pope Jorge can sing the praises of Lucifer and pretend they are doing nothing wrong.

Misidentified Islamic Idol

Mohamed?14. M-Muhammad He is the founderSome people have found the Islamic picture above and mistakenly they think it must be Mohamed (may he rot in hell). This is incorrect. The picture above is not of Muhamad, rather it is a drawing of Ali, one of the alleged successors of Muhammed.

Ali married Muhamed’s daughter Fatima. He and his two sons Hassan and Hussein were killed by other Moslems during the bloody power-struggles that followed after Muhammad’s death (“wars of apostasy“). Ali was praised by Mohamed during his life, and he is greatly idolized by the Shia sect of Islam. Shia pray to Ali even more than Catholics pray to Mary. This is understandable. Whereas the founder of Islam, Mohamed, was a despicable lice ridden fornicating liar with mental illness who was scared of thunder and dogs, his son-in-law Ali at least showed himself brave, pious, and loyal.

In an interesting episode was when Mohamed invited certain Christians to a “curse contest” as a test of his own prophethood, setting forth his daughter Fatima, her husband Ali, and their two sons as under the curse. Allegedly the Christians refused to participate, but nevertheless those four all died violent or bloody deaths, including Fatima who died of injuries from an arson attempt on her house by Omar, a hero of the Sunni sect.

The Persian adoption of Shia has helped them to separate from the Sunni sect over which the Turks and Arabs are politically dominant. Similar to Roman Catholicism’s idolization of Peter to justify their religious leadership as ‘successors’, the Shia claim that their Ayatollahs are the “correct” successors of Mohamed’s family, including through Ali and his sons. The Sunni sect claims that the entire Moslem community is lead by its scholars who come to a general consensus.  Apparently after Omar seized control, he purged many Islamic haddiths (written traditions) and re-wrote the record to his own liking – thus making the authenticity of “official” Islamic history suspect. What “really happened” remains highly contentious between the Shia and Sunni sects. From the Sunni perspective, the Shia have committed sacrilege by turning Ali into their “Islamic Jesus” – a god and saviour. Of course, Ali is dead and unable to save anybody.

The mythical Ali of Shia Islam is a pathetic attempt to counterfeit a substitute for the only true and living saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.

(Romans 10:9-11) “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. {10} For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. {11} For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.”

(Revelation 1:16-18) “And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. {17} And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: {18} I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
