   Stop believing everything you are fed by the main stream media.  They will have you believe that Christians are evil people.  That by itself is contradictory.  Christians try to emulate Jesus Christ and He is anything BUT evil!

   As we have been studying the Book of Daniel in The Bible, consider the parallels to the current political climate in America.  While it is true that our city has not been conquered and our young men captured physically and transported to a foreign land, let us compare our spiritual state to The Hebrew's physical state of those times of Daniel's:

   There were two reasons that God allowed the Chaldeans to capture the Hebrews.  1) The Hebrews failed to keep even one sabbatic year  (planting 6 years, resting the land on the 7th).  God had told them that if they would give every seventh year to Him, they would have abundance in the sixth, enough to last them until harvest in the eighth year.  Whether it was from coveting or just plain humanistic rebellion, they chose to ignore God's law and plant and harvest every year for 490 years.  God gave them time to repent and return to Him, but they refused. 2) There was a second and greater reason why God chose to give His heritage over to the power of the Chaldeans:  For centuries idolatry had been gaining ground among them.  They had disobeyed the second Commandment and turned away from the One True God to serve the false gods of the heathen.  Babylon was the home of idolatry; so the Jews were sent there that they might learn to loathe the idols they had loved.

   There was a little company of boys who set themselves against all the evil of the kingdom of Babylon.  They determined not to defile themselves; and these were the men to whom God could communicate His mind.  This is the big deal today that Christians are being persecuted for whether it is being a virgin football quarterback or not promoting the homosexual lifestyle in our bakery.

   We have our role models:  Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah.  They set themselves against all the evil of the kingdom of Babylon and if we are going to get the mind of God in studying His Book, we must remember that it consists of revelations, deliverances and visions given to a spiritually-minded men who was separated from the iniquity of his day.  So, in order to understand it, we also need to be spiritually-minded and walk apart from all that is unholy, all that would hinder progress in divine things.

   It has been said that "what is one man's meat is another man's poison."  The Bible may become poison to an unspiritual man, if he reads it without being in subjection to God.   On the other hand, place The Bible in the hands of a spiritually-minded person--one who has bowed in God's presence, owning his lost condition; who has trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, and who is now seeking to live for Him, and to let his whole life be subject to His Word--that man sits down to The Bible, and he finds it to be food for his soul, building him up on his most holy faith.
   These Christians know that if you want enlightenment in divine things, you will walk in the power of an ungrieved Spirit, for "the secret of the Lord is with them that fear Him."  All true Christians should know this.  We have been given unalienable rights to worship our God without fear of persecution.

   In spite of what you are fed from the media, we don't HATE anyone.  That is just a bunch of poppy cock that the liberals push, bearing false witness against their neighbor.  It is written in 1 Corinthians 6:  9 - 11:  "Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God?  Do not be deceived:  neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 10) nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.  11) And that is what some of you were.  But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.  (NIV)  We don't hate you, in fact, we identify with you!

   However, we are now walking a different path.  We love you.  It is our prayer that maybe tomorrow you may join us on this wonderful journey.  In the mean time, we who know our God will firmly resist "the king of Babylon".  Honoring God, we will not be moved!
