You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world.  You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.

On Having Faith

Again, they have sinned...

Listen, people.  This is no time to take comfort in your faith.  You may believe that by accepting Jesus as your savior, you can shed your earthly responsibilities and leave your fate in the hands of almighty God.  The problem is, your enemy is counting on you to do just that.  You see, your enemy uses comfort as a weapon.  He does everything possible to make sure you are comfortable by providing mindless entertainment, surprising distractions, consoling news, inexpensive and readily available "comfort" food, and most of all, soothing beliefs.  And when you are quite comfortable, despite the disturbing events raging around you, it is then that your enemy delivers the coup de grace.  Remember the Jews in Germany, how they left their homes, patiently boarded the trains, and walked quietly and orderly into the gas chambers?  They had great faith that their God would provide for them, when in fact evil men orchestrated their fate.

There are evil men today with the awesome power to create money out of nothing who use that money to manipulate judges, lawmakers, and leaders in the highest offices of the land.  These evil men have plans for you, either to enslave you and make you into a faithful servant, or to dispose of you if your loyalty cannot be turned to their selfish purposes.  And they know that the people with strong religious faith cannot be turned to do their bidding and will have to be exterminated.  Only now, the evil ones are much more sophisticated than the Nazis, so there will be no need to board trains to be transported to your death.  No, your death will be delivered to your door, perhaps in the very air you breathe, so that the comfort you find so soothing becomes the means to guarantee your quiet demise.

By focusing on Jesus and your personal salvation, you lose sight of the true evil in the world that is targeting you, the people you care for, and all the unborn descendants of such good people.  By turning your back on the world to concentrate on your personal salvation through "Jesus Christ, our Lord", you allow evil to sweep away the distracted forces of good like so much dust.  This must not be permitted.  The forces of good must not be allowed to wallow in their comfortable faith while evil cuts them down.  Many African tribesmen believed the white man's bullet could not harm them because powerful magic would protect them.  These warriors were cut down easily, and the families they were trying to protect were left defenseless.  The same will happen to the religious faithful who think accepting Jesus is the solution to all problems.  It's not.  It's a big part of the problem.  There is a crucial battle occurring between good and evil.  Take part!  "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
