ARE NON VIOLENT REVOLUTIONARIES SINNERS ?
In what seems as to be a weapon of cooling the erupting volcanoes worldwide, some church leaders in America are calling the protests in the Arab world unbiblical. I am confused.
First of all American Christianity has claimed that America was founded on God yet America actually arose out of a revolution.They claim that democratic principles practiced by America are from the Bible that all men are equal and should be treated equally.
So serious is this claim that the founding rebels have been called the fathers of Christian America.
Yet when Arabs have gone to the street to protest like the American Christian fathers, they are being called sinners ??
To make matters more bittersweet,the disdain of revolutions is coming from so called Protestants WHO PROTESTED (for crying out loud) against the Roman Catholic Church.
What is happening is that the Evangelical Church has been Catholicised.The Catholic church hides in the New Testament when it wants to justify its marriage to the State or worship of the State.
BY doing that they believe that no one should speak against corrupt regimes or declare injustice and wickedness in politics because that is Old testament business and we are now in the new Testament.
Yet the New Testament is the body of the Old Testament ,the shadow.The shadow is never separated from the body as longs light is cast on it.
They are married to the State instead of being separate from the State.
In stead of preaching about the kingdom of God ,they are protecting the kingdom of man which is the kingdom of the Antichrist and ultimately Satan.
True Christians will pray for the governments but will not KEEP QUIET about the sin they commit.Paul preached against the Idolatry that was a State Activity in Ephesus and he faced the wrath of the businessmen and the State, why not you ?
In the end Paul was killed by the State and not even the Religious leaders who sold him to the State.
True Christians pray for their Enemies the State but will not join in their projects and policies as implementers.
True Christians are always on the OPPOSITION SIDE which ever Government comes to power .
This is because we have one king , one president called Jesus Christ.The presidents and kings of this world we honour , not because they are more worthy than God but because God has given them authority.
However we know that you cannot serve two masters at one time and in the end you will hate one and love the other.
In these last days these Evangelical leaders should be telling Christians to prepare to endure the Antichrist government that is now set up worldwide evidenced by the laws, policies and organizations.
In stead they are telling Christians to worship Caesar, the Antichrist system.
They are blind about the times we are in.Hence give blind judgment.
What Christians should be told is that they should live in peace and pray to God to avenge for them as we can see how cruel dictatorships are using force against the citizens.
Gaddafi is busy committing genocide in Libya and in Uganda , Museveni is scaring people and these Evangelical leaders call that peaceful democracies ?
For such we pray that God hastily judge for us the injustices many in the world are facing.
As we pray we also endure to the end , waiting for the kingdom of Jesus Christ that is a kingdom of love and peace and justice.
The American Evangelicals are shooting themselves in the foot by claiming that they are the preachers of Democracy when people now seek for it they call it sin.
What they should be telling the people in the Arab world the gospel of the kingdom of God and how we should be patient and pray for that good kingdom to come and join in by believing in Jesus Christ and abiding in his word.
These so called Revolutionary Presidents in Africa care nothing about he population even though they claim that they fought in the bush for them.
They are creatures of Global Elite Antichrist plans to rule the nations for the Antichrist system, the false Christs Jesus prophesied about.
We are not praising democracy when mention about undemocratic regimes, we are POINTING OUT INJUSTICE AND INIQUITY, sin that God will judge.
Christians should know that when the Antichrist system orders to kill believers they will be killed for being political revolutionaries and terrorists and heretics and tax defaulters
Why? How can we pay taxes to the Antichrist system when the Bible says that whoever is involved in his system will receive eternal punishment in the lake of fire ?
Hence the hypocrisy and Satanic deception of these leaders who are going to trap Christians into sticking to Romans 13 without reading the same in line with Revelation 13.
Influential Evangelical: Mideast Uprisings Violate Biblical Command
By Lillian Kwon|Christian Post Reporter
Influential evangelical John MacArthur doesn’t believe the uprisings that are spreading across the Arab world will lead to the freedom that hundreds of thousands of protesters are demanding.

“I just think the upshot of all of this is more instability, more chaos,” the longtime Southern California pastor told The Christian Post. “I don’t think the future looks good.”
Inspired by the December revolution in Tunisia, which led to the downfall of its dictator, populations in neighboring countries in North Africa and the Middle East have launched similar anti-government protests in hopes of achieving more freedom, democracy, and more opportunities.
The U.S. has responded by asking the governments to respect the people’s right to assemble.
But from a biblical perspective, MacArthur maintained that the protesters are in violation of the biblical command to “submit to the powers that be because they’re ordained of God.”
“I would have wished the American government, which has a history of Christianity, would have risen up and said ‘this is wrong, this is forbidden for people to do this, this is intolerable,” he said.

“I’m not saying Moammar Gadhafi is the best leader; I’m not saying that Mubarak is a great, benevolent and just leader, not when he’s got $70 billion in his own pockets at the expense of people,” he clarified.
But, he stressed, believers are commanded to live orderly, peaceful lives, subjecting themselves to whatever the government would be.
He continued, “And the reason is, any form of government is better than anarchy. You get a little bit of a taste of what’s going on right now – people are dying, property is being destroyed. You can’t have this. And inevitably what’s going to come out of this is going to be less order, more chaos, and perhaps what will come out of less order and more chaos is a worse kind of control, more dominating power.”
The 71-year-old pastor, who recently authored Slave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ, contended that it is not likely that freedom would result from the massive protests.
“You’d like to think that nothing but freedom would come out of this. That’s not what happened in Iran.”
Again, speaking biblically, MacArthur said “the illusion is that these people are going to get freedom.”
“But what we have to understand is that you’re either a slave to sin or a slave to Christ,” he explained. “[N]o sinner is free; … he’s only free to choose the course of his own damnation but he can’t do anything about it.
“This is another form of bondage. They’re going to end up in another form of bondage; they’re going to end up the same, sinful, corrupt, unsatisfied, unfulfilled people taking their same anxieties in a different direction. So it’s not a solution to anything.”
His comments came just before Human Rights Watch reported that at least 233 demonstrators were killed by security forces in Libya. Meanwhile, Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, the son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, said early Monday that if the anti-government protests continue, it could lead to a civil war. At the same time, he said if the protests died down, they could begin instituting a series of reforms and even begin discussions for a constitution, which is nonexistent.
Even if that could mean the possibility of more religious freedom for the tiny Christian minority, MacArthur doesn’t see any huge gains, at least for the church, in that respect.
He pointed to countries like Japan and those in Western Europe that provide for freedom of religion, yet have few Christians or a dying church. In contrast, Christianity in China, where there are numerous reports of religious persecution and limited freedom, is exploding with tens of millions of believers.
“I don’t think religious freedom is even an issue in the advance of the church,” MacArthur stated. “[D]emocracy, freedom of religion or persecution – if you had to pick your poison I think you might want to pick persecution because you get a purer church.”
Ultimately, the Kingdom of God advances without regard for the government, he maintained. Everything with regard to the powers that are in place happens “within the purposes of God and God will rule through these things and overrule these things.”
Thus, desiring freedoms is “not a justification for this kind of mass rioting and disobedience and overturning of governments.”
“After all, who said democracy’s the best form of government?” he said. “No matter what the form of government is, the Bible doesn’t advocate anything but a theocracy. Any form of government is going to self destruct because you’re dealing with corrupt people, sinful people.”
