Don't Listen to Televangelists!

Most, if not all, televangelists are NOT servants of God! If you watched them and saw a corrupted message, believe me, all who read this: God is just as angry about those lies as you are. These people may be speaking about God, and they may quote His word, but they are no different than the pharisees of Jesus' day; whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful/okay on the outside, but it hides death inside.

Also,  they like to distort the word of God to the point that it has a whole different message! Can you think of any other beings who like to speak to servants of God and try to tell them a message that is not in line with God's word? I can think of one in particular! 

Now, remember that we are NOT to hate people (1 John 3:15). Don't support their actions, but pray for them, pray that these people might accept -- not only find, they've already done that much -- but accept the truth, and repent before they learn the hard way. I want to see these people change, and I'd like to see them in Heaven. If any of them read this - REPENT! Stop reading my blog, and stop reading your own thoughts, and read the BIBLE! God is more than a marketing tool, and your behavior comes with a price. You will learn someday... why not make that day today? 

Here are some videos about televangelists:

Also, Benny Hinn says that if you donate to him, you can get blessings in return. This is what God's word says about that: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts+8%3A18-22 

Here's more about Benny Hinn.

Here's several of their lies being exposed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKLZvmR1GeY 




And that's that! Don't listen to them, or their heresy, as it stands. Read the Bible, and listen to its clear instructions with prayerful guidance. If a televangelist hindered your relationship with God, understand that God does not condone what they do, and He wants no part of such manipulative nonsense. Don't listen to the "ravening wolves" in "sheep's clothing". God wants you to come to repentance and to accept Jesus as your savior. God wants you to, unlike televanglists, worship in spirit and truth.

Skeptical About Jesus?

http://www.angelfire.com/sc3/myredeemer/Evidence.html

Here are 36 pages of information to consider.

Random Thoughts

Hear: A man committed many heinous crimes and went to jail with a life sentence. His lawyer - an honest one, looking to help - asked to speak to him, and they allowed him in to speak. The man informed the lawyer that he hated being in jail. The lawyer said happily, "There are things we can do to get you out! I've found a way to help you! Then you can be freed from this prison, and you can go out and find happiness again." But the man said, "No, I will find my own way out of jail. I don't need your help." And the man spent the rest of his life in jail. Everything he tried failed.



Also, isn't it astounding that I experience temptation the most when I'm closest to doing God's will? If sins are just caused by instinct or by human emotion, why am I tempted to sin more ONLY when I pose a threat to the adversary? Wouldn't I want to sin all the time?



If there is one thing I have learned in my like two months of online evangelizing, it's that there are some seriously mentally troubled human beings out there. In fact, you could get the same thing from reading the news, but people's instability has only been magnified in recent events. Humanists need to look at the world - I don't know what mankind they think can survive without God, but it's not the one on the planet where I live. These people are lost and in desperate need of a savior.

Sadness?

When I listened to a lot of dark music, I was more inclined to sadness. There are a number of reasons for that, the most obvious being: 1) the direct negative spiritual influence, and 2) the general mental effect of listening to negative music - it makes you sad, too!

Another reason though, is more to do with the scene itself. The secular black metal scene often use anger and sadness as standards; the better you can express those emotions, the more positive reviews you will probably get.

When you're in a scene where there's a lot of competition to be the "darkest", most "pained" band out there, how do you think people in the scene are going to be?

Obviously very few people will want to exhibit those traits, but when you're around it so much, it rubs off on your psyche anyway! I guess you could say you sort of start "wanting" those emotions anyway. I'm not a psychology expert, but I would definitely describe it that way. And any secularists reading this will say how stupid these words are. "They don't want to be sad, the world just keeps dragging them down! They listen to that music to help them cope with their feelings! They listen to that music because it 'just sounds good'!" It's hard to imagine, but that's actually usually wrong.

Imagine you or your friends being "cheery" people, greeting each other with sincere smiles and hugs. It makes you cringe. Imagine dealing with the "preps" out there. Who would want to do that? But see, those people aren't like that just because they're on some euphoric popularity trip, or because they're "idiots", they're just different. Some of them are putting on a show, sure, but some of them are just happy people. There are plenty of happy people in the world who are very aware of what's going on. (What's "actually going on" is different from what the secular scene tells you too, but that's for another post.) 

Happiness, true happiness, seems to be a sign of weakness in that scene, and in fact in a lot of the world in general. It's not! It's okay to be happy! Your sadness doesn't have to define you. You don't have to hide behind it. It's okay to look at the good in a situation. It's okay to be positive, even cheery if you feel like it, even if "it's faggy" / "it's douchey" / what have you, because it's not! Happiness, even being goofy is okay. It's fine to listen to happier music, too.

I would actually recommend it! The world is full of bad stuff, to be sure, but we don't have to let it affect us so much! We don't have to listen to music based on it and that revels in it. Finding more positive stuff will clean out your psyche (and even your spirit, depending how positive it is). Thinking more positively will magnify those effects.

I know how weird it is for a lot of metalheads to think this way, but try it! Express happiness! Happiness and sadness are contagious, which would you rather someone spread to you?  Maybe you can become someone who starts it where you are.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice!

Psalms 32:11 Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones; And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.

Luke 1:47 And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. 

God bless and guide you all according to His perfect will! In Jesus' name, Amen.

Logic

Some people think that the reason I am a Christian is because, darn-tootin', I'll just believe anything I hear.

Yes, that's why I reject: atheism, deism, paganism, heathenism, taoism, satanism, druidism, atavism, naturalism, wicca, occultism, gnosticism, esotericism, zoroastrianism, (modern) judaism, hinduism, islam, buddhism, norse mythology, and new age. It's because I'll believe "anything" I hear. 

No, I'm a Christian because I'm aware of God's work in this world. Christianity is the only logical belief. I also see that the world literally could not operate in the way it does if supernatural forces were not at work. There are too many coincidences, too many unexplained phenomena, too many similar cases, too many subtle nudges that can't be explained as fleeting thoughts... Also the simple fact that something can't come from nothing. That "something" and those "supernatural forces" being, of course, explained by Christianity.

God bless you all, according to His perfect will. In Jesus' name. Amen.

A Note to the Secular Black Metal Scene

Nicki Minaj Bamboobles Her Butt Critics!  People took the time to examine Nicki Minaj's butt so well that they decided to criticize it or something, so Nicki Minaj wore a shirt that accentuated her chest. They, I, we all, have been successfully bamboobled.

Alright, now that we've gotten that out of our systems, let's get right down to things.

A huge complaint I noticed in the secular black metal scene was always the "Christians" who are supposedly taking over our world today. Inflicting technology, pollution, and mundane articles like ones about Nicki Minaj's "bamboobling" abilities. The complaint was that while the bold pagans and atheists were making atmospheric black metal albums, standing against society's meaningless banter, we Christians were supposedly embracing it and capitalizing off of it. Let me be very clear about something here: that is not true.

Nobody who is interested in serving God will embrace the society we have now. They'll easily be as against it as, almost definitely more than, the secular scene. Society today contradicts the rules set forth by Jesus so much, it's insane. 

Society today is about violence, about hedonistic sloth and greed and gluttony and lust (and using psychological warfare to make people want those things!), about impatience and wrath, about seeking immediate comfort, about modernizing, about submitting to corrupt authority that works for its own agendas, about corporations taking advantage of their workers, about fighting your own way to the top of a nonsense ladder of deceitful societal lies fabricated as "reality", all things that God never wants from us ever for any reason.

Here are some of the things which God wants us to ponder, rather than society:

Luke 21:1-4 As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”

Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;


Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.


John 15:18-19  "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you." 



Also, God calls His natural creations "good" (Genesis 1), Jesus overturned tables when people were misusing a temple (Matthew 21:12-17), Jesus also openly called out the corrupt authorities of that day (Matthew 23), Christianity is actually very much in line with many of your views, and interestingly enough, God is against many of the same things that you are. If any of you are reading this, really, the more I read the Bible, the more I realized that God was actually "on our side" too. God is against the corruption, against the anger, against the - if you will - "stupidity" in our world, against the pointless meandering of the media, against wasting our natural resources for personal gain, all of it. The biggest mistake someone in the secular scene's position can make is to lump God in with those practices, which is a very common misconception. The idea is that the elites claim to be Christians, so you assume they are, when they are actually "ravenous wolves" (Matthew 7:15) and are nothing like the example Jesus set forth

In fact, one main reason I listened to your music for as long as I did (before I could discern positivity and negativity) was how much I, a Christian, agreed with parts of your message: the rebellion against society, the longing for beauty in our world, the shameless self-expression... That's what God wants from His followers! Why do you think there are so many unblack, Christian bands? It's not just because we all want to evangelize to you! If you're into "true" black metal and are truly against society, if you really support rebellion and creativity like black metal talks about, God may well be calling you to Him

It's not black metal but this song came to mind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgpoeTj_Qns

Useful Information on the Forces at Work

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5vZ14Ozqzw

^ This is a video of a man who was heavily into satanism and turned Christian. He exposes many of the things that go on behind the scenes, and how these things work.

It's in things from Pokemon to horror movies. The Illuminati are real, and the "Star of David" is a symbol used when practicing black magic.

The most interesting part, for me, is he tells of a time when a Christian woman was threatening to expose his group, a group thinking their side had all the power, and they summoned a demon and they told him to go put a hex on this lady. The demon returned a few minutes later angry at all of them and said, "Don't you ever send me after a Christian again!" That's how "powerful" demonic forces are compared to the power of Jesus Christ. 

God bless and protect you all according to His perfect will. In Jesus' name. Amen.
