COMMON CAUSE as a RELIGION
versus a personal relationship with JESUS CHRIST

"The more noble the cause, the more devious the motive"


COMMON CAUSE
Who really is a "combatant" , terrorist ? Eventually, will the definition mutate to mean a fundamentalist Bible-believing Christian?

Coalition of Nations = 1 World Common Cause.....Usurping Moral Authority

September 11, 2001...The Birth of
GLOBAL COMMON CAUSE
"In an administration better known for its unilateralist tendencies, Mr. Bush's willingness to focus his attention on building a remarkable international consensus for action should be applauded. Tony Blair's role in that bridge-building should be applauded too. For while America has called for help from friends in NATO, the European Union, the Pacific and South America, invoking military friendship treaties for the first time, it has also reached out to states usually regarded as enemies of the US, including Iran, Sudan and Cuba.
Mr. Bush, too, has sought to reassure the Muslim world that his enemy is not the teachings of Islam, but a perversion of it: one that, contrary to the Koran, preaches murder instead of peace; and hatred not tolerance.
All well and good. But there are dangers here as well."
http://www.observer.co.uk/leaders/story/0,6903,556556,00.html

[ Note: The Administration can't throw out Islam (Sharia Law) , for soon the world will be practicing Islam's beheading of Christians----all those who do not conform to the 666 system.]

Coalition makes strange bedfellows
North, South, East and West all vow to fight "terrorists"
“The moves are meant partly to bolster the military government of Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, which has agree to share information, allow use of its airspace and provide logistical support for the U.S.
In his address Thursday night, Bush emphasized that the U.S. struggle is against terrorists, not Islam. It will depend on another key ally -- Saudi Arabia, home to Islam's holiest sites -- to help spread that news.”

"Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of DECISION,

MILITARY COMMON CAUSE
NATO will play its part in the campaign to defeat terrorism, but events this week indicate that it will be no more than a cog in
a vast global machine under the absolute control of Washington.
European states that had claimed some right to be "consulted" by the White House before the launch of any retaliatory strikes were given short shrift by Paul Wolfowitz, the US deputy defence secretary, at Nato headquarters on Wednesday.

COMMON CAUSE ALIGNS NEW WORLD ORDER
"Terror attacks in the United States this month instantly thrust Washington and Moscow into common cause on a top strategic priority,
a historic shift presaging a genuine realignment in world order, according to US and European experts in geopolitics."

"And that synergy, the experts say, has the potential to
rearrange radically the ways in which the United States, Russia and Europe work together in areas ranging from defense and trade to access to natural resources in central Asia, the Caucasus and elsewhere."

from Putin:
"Our countries are multi-ethnic and multi-religious, and it's not simply counterproductive but harmful and dangerous to mix terrorism and Islam," Putin said.
"Terrorists covering themselves up with Islamic slogans have nothing in common with this world religion."
Editor: Did we hear that right ????
Every seventh Russian is Moslem, and Putin consulted with Islamic clergy before announcing support for the U.S.-led anti-terrorist effort.

MYSTERY BABYLON: "that woman Jezebel" (Rev. 2:20 )

Mystery Babylon is government and religion combined politically, militarily, and commercially-economically ( 666 ) in the name of Common Cause.

Governments seek and receive the endorsements of every main-denominational ( organized ) religion on major issues.
Many Church leaders and sheeple will be only too glad to back these political causes....wanting to be politically-correct, and in order to maintain a low profile.

Main street "Religion" has now become political activism, spurred on by powerful world leaders.
Words are twisted to mean their opposites. The Bible is quoted out of context and misquoted.
The Bible is no longer the foundation of Faith, and is currently being "outlawed".
The "god of all faiths" that they speak of is not the God of the Bible.
The controlled "will of the people" ( Laodicea ) is the New Faith.
The Tyranny of the "should" (politically-correct peer pressure )


My Country, My President, My Party ... Right or Wrong--- Steve Farrell
A. "Thou shalt have no other Gods before me" translated politically into a prohibition against kings, absolute power, above-the-law government officials, and any attempt by the state to mandate worship of the state. It insured that government was by the consent of the governed, who were, each of them, equally possessed of the same rights that any government official possessed. All powers held by public officials were only on temporary loan from the people. A failure to keep that trust so delegated would be, and should be, cause to renege those powers.
B. Men and governments were likewise prohibited from preventing or interfering in any individual's worship of God – the right to religious liberty.

"Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into Great Tribulation,
except they repent of their deeds.
And I will kill her children with death;
and all the churches shall know that I am He which searcheth the reins and hearts
."
Revelation 2:22 , 23


Looking for the "spiritual vote" ..... mixing politics with religion
Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey - the leader of the world's 78 million Anglicans - and Archbishop
David Hope of York said in an open letter Christians should "give attention to the underlying beliefs and values of the individual candidates."
"Their personal attitudes and moral outlook, as well as the policies of the party to which they belong, will be part of the consideration when deciding where to mark our cross."

Jacque Elul is right : "Politics is the god of this age"


Can a Christian Share his Faith ? Yes.
John Locke's 1689 approach in "A Letter Concerning Toleration." http://www.constitution.org/jl/tolerati.htm

When Is Religion Forced ? ....Steve Farrell
4. While government officials are forbidden to bring force to bear in matters of faith, they do have every right and responsibility to use every tool of religious persuasion at their disposal.
Said Locke:

"It may indeed be alleged that the magistrate may make use of arguments, and, thereby; draw the heterodox into the way of truth, and procure their salvation. I grant it; ... this is common to him with other men. In teaching, instructing, and redressing the erroneous by reason, he may certainly do what becomes any good man to do. Magistracy does not oblige him to put off either humanity or Christianity. ... [This] charitable care ... cannot be denied any man

"Compel them to come in" Luke 14:23

"Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15

The only real hate crime is the world's hate and intolerance of Jesus Christ and true Born-Again Christians.

"If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you" John 15:18
"They hated Me without a cause" -- John 15:25
See also Luke 6:22; 1 John 3:13; Matthew 10:22 and 24:9; Mark 13:13; Luke 21:17; John 17:14;

"If you were of the world the world would love his (Satan's) own:
but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world ("ecclesia"..."Church"...."called out of")
therefore the world hateth you." John 15:19

Do we notice how our leaders never mention "Islam" or "Moslem" in regards to September 11- 2001 ?
They use a large generic term like "terrorists", and now "fundamentalists". and "combatants".
And under those big generalizations, they enact laws against the freedoms of the citizenry.
So far, only the citizens have been penalized for what occurred on September 11- 2001.

The real target of all these unlawful laws is Born-Again, Blood-bought Christians.
It is Christians who will very soon be the real target of government oppression and punishment. It will all come about shortly.

"The more frightening reason why the government can have confidence in our support is that most Americans have only the dimmest notion of what their constitutional freedoms are—and what it took to get them. So there is little concern that they and other Americans can be caught in dragnets of suspicion by a government that has suspended much of the Bill of Rights. "

"What does "implicated" mean? Reasonable suspicion? Probable cause? And how will we know whether basic due process has been afforded those "implicated" when, as Sisk continued, the Justice Department says, "Search warrants and records will be sealed. Law enforcement also no longer will disclose when arrests are made or when material witnesses are taken into custody."

ECUMENISM....seeking endorsements from all religions
for political causes (Common Cause)

"We will replace the Bible with the Koran"

'The British Government has to be stopped,' said Bakri. 'Blair knows that he is wrong. And he will pay for it. We will remodel this country in an Islamic image.' Waiting until his followers stopped giggling at the vision of an Islamic state of Great Britain, Bakri continued: 'We will replace the Bible with the Koran.
http://www.observer.co.uk/islam/story/0,1442,587375,00.html

From Calvary Contender :
" [ecumenists ] play semantic word games in an attempt to forge unbiblical unity, faithful believers must refuse to dialogue or unite with those who preach a false gospel.
All who embrace false doctrine possess the spirit of antichrist, and this spirit of ecumenicity is prevalent in the world today. God's Word clearly commands us to 'have no fellowship,' 'avoid' and 'withdraw' from those who teach false doctrine (Romans 16-17, Ephesians 5:11) and from those brethren who disobediently unite with such false teachers ( 2Thessalonians . 3:6, 14-15 ).
Dialogue, consensus or conciliatory diversity is not an option!" The false premise in dialogue is that we can scripturally work together in unity if we can overcome doctrinal differences.
"
Calvery Contender...Aug.18-2001

George "W" ( 43 ) Bush too believes in
Ecumenism:
Bush courts Catholics
For months, almost everywhere Mr. G Herbert Bush has gone, he has asked to see the local leader of the Catholic church.

President G W ( 43 ) Bush underlines Christianity (faith-based)
http://www.guardianunlimited.co.uk/elsewhere/journalist/story/0,7792,432487,00.html

Bush's executive orders (faith-based) reveal that to his administration the Whole is greater than the part....
Society is more important than the individual . This is a dangerous philosophy.
http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,15-77638,00.html not working

That philosophy is the opposite of Christianity, which puts into practice what Our Lord taught:
we are to love our neighbor AS OURSELVES.
This precludes the fact that one cannot love others more than one can love himself ( in a responsible wholesome way.)

"What doth it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul ?" MARK 8: 36

The INDIVIDUAL is more important than the Whole. Jesus did not come for the WHOLE ( institutions, organizations, society ).
Jesus came for the individual. That single flame is what permeates the Whole, and purifies.

CONVOLUTED THINKING and FALSE GUILT-TRIPS
When the Whole is more important than the individual, abuse of power comes into play, and individuals are made subservient to Causes; which in short time become immoral causes... precisely because the individual is devalued in the process.

"For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away ?" See Luke 9:25 and Matthew 16: 26

Is it true that "all faiths are equal" ? Not so...

"This is the STONE (JESUS of Nazareth) which was set at naught of you builders,
which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there SALVATION in any other name (JESUS): for there is none other NAME (JESUS) under Heaven given among men, whereby we MUST be saved". ACTS 4:11, 12

What is meant by "the kingdom of God" if there is no Jesus Christ ?....
a religious empire exclusive of Jesus ?

"There is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" Acts 4:12

The beginning of the road is open to all: Salvation in the atoning blood of Jesus-alone for the forgiveness of our sins.
Not everyone takes that road.
The end of that road --heaven--is only for those who are Born Again. "YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN" John 3:7

"For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved."

"He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already,
because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." John 3:17, 18.

"There is none good but one, that is God." Matthew 19:17

(We have no righteousness within our nature.
We come to God only in the righteousness of Jesus Christ, and His covering over of our confessed sins by His Blood...."kippur")

"As it is written,'There is none righteous, no, not one:
There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
They are ALL gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable,
there is none that doeth good, no, not one." Romans. 3:10-12

"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned EVERYONE to his own way" Isaiah 53:6

"For ALL have sinned and come short of the grace of God" Romans. 3:23
"If we say that we have no sin, (present state) we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1: 8, 9

I AM the DOOR: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved" John 10:9

Heaven has an inside and an outside:

"And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or MAKETH A LIE;
but they which are written in the Lamb's book of Life (will enter in) REVELATION 21: 27

"Blessed are they that DO His commandments, that they may have RIGHT to the tree of Life,
and may ENTER IN through the gates into the city (New Jerusalem)

For without are dogs ( unbelievers ), and sorcerers (psychics, witches, pharmekia-drugs)
and whoremongers ( unlawful sex )
and murderers ( eugenics, population-control, RU-486, abortion, euthanasia etc. )
and idolaters ( worshipping the temporal rather than the Eternal )
and WHOSOEVER LOVETH and MAKETH A LIE." REVELATION 22:14, 15 (unrepentant lifestyle referred to here)

But the FEARFUL
( of man's opinion etc...always trying to be politically-and religiously correct )
and the unbelieving ( evolutionists etc. ) and the abominable, and murderers, and sorcerers
( tarot cards, horoscopes, astrology etc. ) and idolaters,
AND ALL LIARS
shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone (hell): which is the second death." REVELATION 21:8

"I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father BUT BY ME" John 14: 6

"I and My Father are ONE " John 10:30 ( echad )

"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way,
that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there be which go in there at:
Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE,
and FEW there be that find it." Matthew 7: 13, 14 and Luke 13:24

Beware of False Prophets which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." Matthew 7:13,14,15

"I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God unto Salvation." Roman 1: 16

The TRUTH divides. Either a person worships the State, or else one worships Jesus of Nazareth alone.

The Mark of the Beast--the 666 mark--will divide us all.

In the beginning--in Genesis--man was given only one commandment to obey.
In the Last Days , only one warning concerning hell will be given:
Do not take the 666 Mark of the Beast. Rev. 13 and Rev. 14:9-11
