The New World Order: Global Government

Updated on May 16, 2019

James A. Watkins is an entrepreneur, musician, and a writer with four non-fiction books and hundreds of magazine articles read by millions.

World Government

In 1950, James Warburg, son of the ‘Father of the Federal Reserve,’ unabashedly told the U.S. Senate in a public hearing: "We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest." Four years earlier, John D. Rockefeller had provided the funds to build the United Nations in New York.

Many Americans have wanted to bring about a New World Order. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt probably did more to bring it about than any other single person.

Rex Tugwell, part of FDR’s Brain Trust, wrote a new constitution in 1974 that would abolish freedom of speech, control all communications and travel, eliminate the right to free assembly, and most importantly stamp out the free exercise of religion, even making worship a ‘privilege’ granted by the State. The Bill of Rights would be thrown out, and private ownership of guns prohibited. The Ford Foundation spent $25 million promoting Tugwell’s new constitution.

In 1993, a World Parliament of Religions gathered in Chicago to champion a new unified global religion. It concluded with a mission statement that focused on Earth worship but never once mentions God.

Worldwide Socialism

Why would the wealthiest men in the world want Socialism to be the New World Order? It seems counterintuitive to think the rich would want to share the world's wealth. As explained by Gary Allen, "If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is, in reality, a method to consolidate and control the wealth, the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead, it becomes logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism or more accurately Socialism is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite."

As W. Cleon Skousen noted: "It was almost inevitable that the super-rich would one day aspire to control not only their wealth but the wealth of the whole world. To achieve this, they were perfectly willing to feed the ambitions of the power-hungry political conspirators who were committed to the overthrow of all existing governments and the establishments of a central world-wide dictatorship."

Council of Foreign Relations

The mission of the Council on Foreign Relations, formed in 1921, is to gradually cede the power, authority, and sovereignty of the United States to the United Nations, all the while desensitizing Americans by implementing Socialism progressively. In the end, the CFR wants to rule or help rule the world through World Socialist Government.

Admiral Chester Ward, Judge Advocate General for the United States Navy in the 1950s and former member of the CFR, wrote that the goal of the organization is “submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful one-world government.”

He also explained how the CFR influences our government today: “Once the ruling members of the CFR have decided that the U.S. Government should adopt a particular policy, the CFR prepares propaganda both to sell the changes to the public and to demonize any opposition.”

Edith Kermit Roosevelt (granddaughter of TR) wrote in 1961 about the CFR's plans for "a One World Socialist State governed by experts like themselves. The result has been policies which favor gradual surrender of United States sovereignty to the United Nations."

Luciferian Conspiracy

To bring about the Luciferian New World Order, America must be disintegrated from within, by first getting rid of the shared identity of Americans, their shared religion, values, customs, traditions, associations, and language.

Psychopolitics have been employed to bring this to fruition. Christianity is the wall blocking the New World Order. After all, the New Testament told us of its plan nearly 2000 years ago.

The Solicitor General for President Obama already admitted before the Supreme Court that under Obamacare citizens could be forced to eat broccoli. And that eventually everyone might be forced by our government to embrace the homosexual agenda, including all Christian schools, universities, charities, and finally churches.

Common Core

The new Common Core standards are, in part, a new massive data collection program on America's families, which has nothing to do with education. It is being smuggled into government schools, and its purveyors are lobbying for private schools and homeschoolers to be forced to participate.

Among other things, the globalists want to know the religious views and political views of your family, along with health care history, including the mental health of your entire household. Children will be the only ones questioned, and they will be asked to squeal on their parents if they know of any illegal activities or drug use.

Why would the federal government want private information gathered about every child in America and their families? By what authority do they gather it?

The National Center for Education Statistics will receive massive dossiers from every student. Do we want the government to have our children tell if they or their parents hold any politically incorrect views? Why would federal bureaucrats even want such information? Why would the government spend billions of dollars collecting it? Only a police state keeps enormous files of personal, private information of law-abiding citizens.

Robert Muller

The ‘father of global education’ and ‘the philosopher of the United Nations’ and its ‘prophet of hope’ was Robert Muller (1923-2010). He said that his ‘spiritual master' was the former head of the United Nations, U Thant, an Atheist Buddhist, and Communist. Both men wanted to globalize education; wanted children around the world to be taught the same lessons "to bring about lasting peace."

What would these lessons be? The Gospel? No. U Thant said, "I would attach the greatest importance to spiritual values. I would deliberately avoid using the word ‘religion.' I have in mind faith in oneself as the greatest virtue of all."

Now Robert Muller is the author of the World Core Curriculum, from which is derived Common Core. Muller spent nearly 40 years creating his World Core Curriculum, which is meant to teach children worldwide that what is best for their future is a “one-world education system, a one-world government, and one-world spirituality that includes a one-world religion.”

A One-World Religion? Isn't that what Christianity already is? Muller's religious beliefs were something entirely different, coming from an occult spirit guide he said was named Djwal Khul.

The preface to World Core Curriculum reads: “The underlying philosophy, upon which the Robert Muller School is based, will be found in the teachings set forth in the books of Alice A. Bailey by the Tibetan teacher, Djwal Kuhl, and the teachings of M. Morya as given in the Agni Yoga series books.”

Alice A. Bailey, in her book Education in the New Age, wrote: “One of our immediate educational objectives must be the elimination of the competitive spirit.” She devoted her life to the destruction of Christianity so that a path is clear for her single global religion in the Age of Aquarius. Attacking individualism and establishing a global collective is a considerable part of her program. She was most assuredly anti-freedom and anti-America.

UNESCO

The first president of UNESCO, Julian Huxley, said the goal of that organization was “to help the emergence of a single world culture: world humanism,” which is Atheism/Socialism.

UNESCO has been plotting of late to cram a World Core Curriculum down the collective throats of the human race, which will "install radical new values in children"—views decidedly opposite Christian values.

Robert Muller called it "a curriculum of our universal knowledge which should be taught in all schools of the earth."

A big part of the scheme is to "combat family attitudes," to annihilate the values parents pass on to their children. The United States must go, along with its Constitution. All nation states should dissolve; individual liberty is to become a thing of the past.

Agenda 21 will take over every detail of our lives. The UN declares, “Rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.”

Since the color red has fallen out of favor among political movements after red socialists murdered 100 million innocent souls, green is the new color of the Left. The greens, which worship not God but the environment, often laugh and call themselves watermelons, green on the outside but red on the inside.

What they want is central planning for the whole world, with them in charge, to “save the planet,” even though central planning—besides the death, terror, famine, starvation, suffering, and misery it has caused—always devastates the environment.

What Does the Bible Say?

The Bible says that the Anti-Christ will bring all of Mankind under a single world government. There is a Great Plan to eliminate national boundaries to usher in a New World Order in the service of Evil. The primary public reason given will be to end all wars.

Advocates of the New World Order hate Christ Jesus more than anything else. That is why they fought to remove any reference to Him in public schools. The Christian faith has been the most efficacious opposition to Socialism.

The schools instead substitute a disguised form of Satanism they call Secular Humanism, which naturally teaches kids there is no such thing as morals. If there are no morals, then the ends justify the means for individuals, and more importantly for the State. As Karl Marx said, "We make war against all prevailing ideas of religion. The idea of God must be destroyed."

The Carnegie Endowment, the Ford Foundation, and the Guggenheim Foundation selected the twenty historians to found the American Historical Association in 1928 and provided their funding. That association aims to rewrite history, to promote Secular Humanism and collectivism in the United States with the ultimate goal of destroying it to prepare the way for a New World Order.

Paul C. Vitz in his book Censorship wrote: “Public school textbooks exclude the history, heritage, beliefs, and values of millions of Americans. Those who believe in the traditional family are not represented. Those who believe in free enterprise are not represented. Those who are committed to their religious heritage—at the very least as an important part of the historical record—are not represented.”

The Antichrist Culture

The Antichrist Culture in America loves abortion because it negates the sacredness of unique and unrepeatable human life. It uses Social Science as a weapon of cultural warfare.

Philip Rieff says that Sociology is “a deathwork against the sacred order” that phonily claims neutrality while partisan to the Antichrist culture. It offers the therapist as a substitute for the priest. It promotes “specialists without spirit” and “sensualists without heart.” Life without soul.

The Antichrist Culture is dominated by the dynamics of lying, Rieff writes. America—the most free country in human history—was presented in the 1960s by the Antichrist as a vast penal colony in need of liberation.

The freedom offered by the Antichrist is freedom from morals, but it does not make us free. It makes us slaves to our desires. It promotes lives devoted only to entertainment and pleasure. It supports the joys of transgression as a means to alienate people from the sacred order. The goal is anomie. The result is the State as lord and master.

The Destruction of the Sacred Order

The godless culture cannot lead to higher humanity—it is unmistakably marked by a change in a downward direction. In place of commanding truths from God, we substitute human rules about minutiae. Antichrist Culture celebrates its talent at ruining sacred truths. The Antichrist denies and mocks the Bible not because it is not true but because it is true.

To the Antichrist the human being is no more significant than an insect, a mosquito no more sacred than a person. The goal of the Antichrist is to empty human beings of their identities in the sacred order. Antichrist babble produced Franz Fanon, Stalin, and Pol Pot, all of whom celebrated in blood the destruction of the sacred order.

Antichrist Culture seeks to separate man from his spiritual nature, leaving him an animal enslaved to appetites, without moral compass points, in a destabilized society. That is an immense disorder of truth—God is not the author of chaos—disorder brings death. Discard the sacred; make God out to be a fiction; ravish the Truth; worship at the altar of the supreme fantasies fathered by Marx and Freud.

Rebellion

Mein Kampf is about imposing a fictional new order on a disenchanted reality. Kulturkampf sought to disarm moral authority through law and politics, to shift the moral imagination from Church to State. Both Nazis and Marxists invented substitute religions to supplant Christianity. The Antichrist argues that faith in God involves the abnegation of intellect but then demands faith in its human substitute—as if that signifies you are smart.

To destroy a crèche in a public space but promote transgression in a public space—as in shameless conduct—passes for tolerance. ‘Values neutrality’ always means taking the side of Antichrist culture. The Truth is treated as obsolete and it is replaced by “Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion.”

Obedience to God is presented as the ultimate in boredom with disobedience portrayed as exciting. The Antichrist demands ever-growing rights to transgressive behaviors. We are left with a land without civility; a nation without grace, full of Antichrist militants that no one has the balls to stand up to. But Utopia will never come. God is not mocked.

Hatred of the Human Race

The truth is the truth whether you believe it or not. Marx was a hater. The moving force behind the Antichrist is pure hatred. You can see it in Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, as well as in Picasso, Mapplethorpe, and Madonna. The last three turn their hatred toward the audience.

Antichrist Culture aims its arsenal at the dignity of civilization. Nothing is sacred, especially human beings. Antichrist culture does not imagine itself on the road to Truth. Its milestones are the destruction of the sacred truths others hold dear.

Taxpayers are forced to fund works of sacrilege. Piss Christ puts Christ in urine because the Christian Faith holds as sacred that Christ lives in the Believer, so the ‘artist' is saying, "You are piss."

The Story Has a Happy Ending

Jesus said that false messiahs would come with plans to save the world (and perhaps the whales too), to bring about a utopia (the word means nowhere). They will make predictions that are just plausible enough. But He warns that the false saviors will be in league with the Devil.

The Antichrist will not come as a seemingly evil person but as an angel of light. He will appear to be a fantastic man who pulls off miraculous feats that help people. It only takes a drop of cyanide to poison a whole glass of wine.

Satan will rule the world through the Antichrist, a global leader of high charisma; a messianic figure who will form a one-world religion and one-world government promising to save us from war, poverty, and pain. He will have a hypnotic magnetism. No one will be able to buy or sell anything without pledging eternal loyalty to him. Those who resist will be intimidated, starved, and murdered. Most people will yield to him, valuing their bodies more than their souls.

This world has a happy ending, however. Jesus the Christ comes back to vanquish the Devil and his demons forever to Hell, ushering in a new Heaven and a new Earth for all those who have believed on His Name. Only a personal faith in Christ can save you.

      The party line used to be there is no such thing as globalism – no one wants to eliminate nations and only conspiracy theorists believe in a New World Order, one-world government campaign going on. That was then. This is now. The globalists no longer hide their plans.

      The crowd from Davos – the World Economic Forum, a.k.a. the High Church of Globalism – now openly pushes something they call “The Great Reset” – essentially the Great Globalist Reset. According to its promoters, it will end inequality, racism, climate change, and, of course, coronavirus.

      “The world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions,” the oligarchs of the World Economic Forum helpfully advise. “Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. Governments should improve “coordination” in tax, regulatory, and fiscal policy, and implement “long-overdue reforms that promote more equitable outcomes.”

      Equitable outcomes equals communism. Worldwide. Resetters would arrogate to themselves the authority to set economic, energy, immigration, and trade policies. Worldwide. This requires “a considerable erosion of the rigid concepts of national sovereignty” and the elimination of the “antiquated political structures in which most of the world is organized” – in other words, sovereign nation-states.

      This is no less than a plot to merge the American economy with that of the world, despite an inevitable destruction of our standard of living, our high wage scales, and our most favorable working conditions, in all of which is inextricably involved the American way of life.

      Strobe Talbott served in Bill Clinton’s State Department when the World Trade Organization was founded. Talbott in 1992 described “The Birth of the Global Nation” in Time magazine: “Countries are artificial and temporary. Within the next hundred years, nationhood as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority.”

      James I read what snopes said

      https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/obama-surrender-...

      However what I find interesting is if you read his speech that is on the snopes website he doesn’t say which camp he is in nor does snopes point that out!

      I find that very interesting as I think when addressing the global community any President of the US would strive to make a point as to which approach he and we are willing to die for instead of merely differentiating between the two as if presenting a history lesson.

      There are those in the global audience who today subscribe to his latter view, and honestly nothing in that speech makes me think he doesn’t! Although editing a clip like that one was is deceitful perhaps it was done more to drive home the point that we don’t know what the “skunk” (thank you for that) really believes.

      I see it as akin to him saying to say when life begins is above his pay grade! What an incidious statement for a so called Christian to make!

      Thanks James. So the clip was taken out of context. I looked at other longer youtube videos of that speech but couldn’t find that clip in them. Maybe I missed it cause I did skim through them but I was thinking maybe it was edited out.

      Anyway I should have checked snopes.

      T ~ Your video was shocking. So shocking I had to check out its veracity. According to Snopes - whom I loath and distrust but even a blind squirrel finds a acorn once and a while - it is phony.

      They say that what Obama really said was that the ideals of the American Founding Fathers replaced "an older, more traditional view of power. This alternative vision argues that ordinary men and women are too small-minded to govern their own affairs, that order and progress can only come when individuals surrender their rights to an all-powerful sovereign. Often, this alternative vision roots itself in the notion that by virtue of race or faith or ethnicity, some are inherently superior to others, and that individual identity must be defined by “us” versus “them,” or that national greatness must flow not by what a people stand for, but by what they are against."

      In other words, considered in their full context, President Obama’s mentions to ordinary men and women being “too small-minded to govern their own affairs” and order and progress being possible only “when individuals surrender their rights to an all-powerful sovereign” are clearly references to an old, undesirable form of power, not an expression of President Obama’s viewpoint about how things are or should be in the world today.

      “Being caleed a pot smuggler is a badge of honor for me, T. ... for my role although I was offered $10,000 per shipment.”

      This one bears repeating

      “I've smoked pot all my life and it hasn't interfered with anything I wanted to do.”

      When he writes about what he wanted to do, and did, during the brain development period of his life, that is smuggling pot into the USA to earn his “badge of honor!” That takes the cake! Guess he’s right, smoking pot wouldn’t interfere with wanting to do that...or do anything that doesn’t require a healthy well developed brain.

      You can add that to the rest of Randy Godwinnuendo’s famous quotes:

      “I can also pause the movie when I need to replenish my adult beverage or smoke a doobie. Something else you can't do in a public theatre.”

      Or

      “Cool! I once knew a couple of pot smugglers who were professors at MIT. Seriously! They made mucho dinero...”

      “Being caleed a pot smuggler is a badge of honor for me, T. ... for my role although I was offered $10,000 per shipment.”

      “I've smoked pot all my life and it hasn't interfered with anything I wanted to do. Now I have bad glaucoma and my doc says--privately of course--it's very good for relieving the pressure caused by the disease.”

      (The pot smuggler blindly parrots anything he hears. High eye pressure – what doctors call “intraocular pressure” – can cause damage to the optic nerve. Marijuana use lowers intraocular pressure for a few hours. What actually causes blindness in glaucoma is damage to the optic nerve, which connects the eye to the brain. Each eye only has one, so it is important to protect it. Because marijuana lowers blood pressure as well as intraocular pressure, it can reduce the optic nerve’s blood supply—and if you have glaucoma, that nerve has already suffered some damage. Lowering the blood supply may not be beneficial)

Yet, it is collective humanity that desires a system that monitors and controls everything they say and do. Evil must run its course. It's most certainly Babel revisited.

      and of course, "Kudos" to you for replacing JFK as having the most famous head wound in history. Way to go, buddy! We're all so proud of you. Enjoy the ride with the interns.

      Thank you John for your reply to my question “how many heads did JFK have?” We are in agreement then that he had only one head.

      So how does JFK “uniquely” fit the Revelation description of the BEAST? (which has more than one head) Having one head does not make him uniquely fit the description of a beast with more than one head does it? It appears to me it uniquely makes him not fit the description of the beast.

      I’m just trying to understand.

      JFK had a normal human body,.. thus just one literal head. Besides receiving the most famous fatal appearing head wound in history ... JFK was also world famous as a Roman Catholic.

      Only avowed RC to be POTUS of the world's most powerful (in 1960) nation. A nation that had been deemed a Protestant nation since it's founding.

      Rev 17 reveals the BEAST at first ridden by the Great Whore. Great clue the BEAST is a Roman Catholic.

      World famous RC with world famous head wound with a very mysterious aftermath. Like the fact that the body ALLEGEDLY was in a delux casket when it left Texas ....but in a cheap gray shipping casket when it arrived at Bethesda hospital. Best wishes, JP

      John, I do not wish to spark a debate either but I would like an answer to just one question.

      How many heads do you think JFK had, or has (if you are right). Is that what makes JFK uniquely fit the description of the beast? He had more than one head? I think the facts suggest he only had one head and you will never be vindicated.

      I appreciate your taking the time to reply. Yes, he's old and since 63 we've been told he's dead and gone. However, JFK uniquely fit's the Revelation description of the BEAST.

      3 I saw one of his heads as if it was mortally wounded, but his deadly wound was healed, and the whole world marveled and followed the beast. Rev 13.

      I'm really not trying to start a debate, cause only JFK's reappearance will vindicate me. Best wishes, JP

      PT ~ As to your second comment, you hit on something big: “Instead of writing a new constitution … They have seen it easier just to interpret the existing US Constitution with their manifesto.” I just read several reviews of a new book, which I then ordered, that is based on the premise that America has two Constitutions – the original one that is beloved by Conservatives, and a new one that has been formed since the 1960s that the Left has made and to which it is devoted. It is written by Christopher Caldwell and entitled The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties.

      This was very interesting and I believe has to be the working plan for the left this century.

      Instead of writing a new constitution would need secession from the Union like they did for the Civil War. They have seen it easier just to interpret the existing US Constitution with their manifesto.

      Ironically today is showing the visible signs of their new constitution which is on track with a New World Order, while Russia is embracing old American Constitutional inspiration. The New Putin sparked Russian Constitution has God, and it has Nationalism, and it has capitalism.

      "Rex Tugwell, part of FDR’s Brain Trust, wrote a new constitution in 1974 that would abolish freedom of speech, control all communications and travel, eliminate the right to free assembly, and most importantly stamp out the free exercise of religion, even making worship a ‘privilege’ granted by the State.

      The Bill of Rights would be thrown out, and private ownership of guns prohibited. The Ford Foundation spent $25 million promoting Tugwell’s new constitution."

      And He has through the Prophets, the Apostles and His Word which teaches us of the fall of Satan, the creation and fall of man, mankind’s eternal destiny without acceptance of His plan of salvation.

      It’s all here right under our noses, the free gift of God your creator if we first acknowledge that there is the one God of creation, of the Bible! Reject Him?

      For what? Nothingness?

      No, reject Him and suffer 1 Corinthians 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.19Scripture says, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise. I will reject the intelligence of intelligent people."

      God created Lucifer with free will, just as he created us with free will. Why? You mean, why didn't he make angels and human robots?

      Bob Dylan said, "You're gonna serve somebody."

      G. K. Chesterton observed that while free will includes the freedom to things it most importantly appears as the freedom not to do things—because they are wrong. Our ultimate happiness often depends on what we choose not to do. That is the heart of morality, which is why traditional Christian morality is hated by the godless because they prefer to posit that we cannot help what we are or what we do.

      The possibility of evil is necessary. If we have the freedom to do good, we must have the freedom to do bad. If I am free to pick up a man's lost wallet and return it to him, I must also be free to keep it for myself and go on a shopping spree with his credit card. If my only choice is to return the wallet, then the act cannot be called a "choice" and it hardly can be called "good." If we had no choice but to do good, then we would be puppets on a cosmic string, dancing to God's tune without any agency of our own.

      Still sticking with your self deception, Randy? I could have predicted that but the easter bunny doesn’t define me. Christ defines you as a sinner who needs a savior and that is what you hate. You hate as I said, everything he stands for, you hate the thought that there is a God who created you and controls your destiny and to embrace him means admitting you are a sinner destined for eternal punishment without him. In short you are enslaved to your sin and the chains of bondage which Satan has put on you and there is no way he will allow you to break those chains by believing in Jesus Christ, setting the captive free and that is the truth.

      What’s ironic is while you want to believe Christians are enslaved to an imaginary Jesus you are enslaved to a deception of a real life Satan.

      James, Randy is deceiving himself, not us, if he believes “ I'd have to believe Jesus existed before I could hate him.“

      If he doesn’t believe in Jesus, who stands for everything Godly and good then he can’t believe in the devil either. So he can’t hate the devil, evil incarnate?

      So what does he hate? He obviously hates Christians who try to model their life after Jesus. So he doesn’t hate Jesus? Hard to understand that but what isn’t hard to understand is that if he hates what Jesus represents, the gospel message, the easiest way to reject it is to simply say He, and so it, doesn’t exist and this is the underlying moral reason for atheists’ rejection of Christ explained in this 4 minute interview.

      "But the arts of hypocrisy are, in time, exhausted, and some unhappy circumstance defeats those measures which they had laid to prevent a discovery. They are at length suspected, and by that curiosity which suspicion always invites, closely pursued, and openly detected.

      "It is then too late to think of deceiving mankind by false appearances, nor does any thing remain, but to avow boldly what can no longer be denied. Impudence is called in to the assistance of immorality; and the censures, which cannot be escaped, must be openly defied.

      "He endeavors to trample upon those laws which he is known not to observe, to scoff at those truths, which, if admitted, have an evident tendency to convict his whole behavior of folly and absurdity, and from having long neglected to obey God, rises at length into rebellion against Him.” ~ DR.

      T ~ Yes, Randy has a deep-seated hatred of Jesus. His motives are perhaps explained by Aldous Huxley:

      “I had motives for not wanting the world to have meaning; and consequently assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption. The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics. He is also concerned to prove that there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do. For myself, as no doubt for most of my friends, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom. The supporters of this system claimed that it embodied the meaning - the Christian meaning, they insisted - of the world. There was one admirably simple method of confuting these people and justifying ourselves in our erotic revolt: we would deny that the world had any meaning whatever.”

      Randy Godwin ~ I have to laugh every time I see a leftist call Christians 'judgmental.' Who is it that has instituted Campus Speech Codes and banned people from Social Media for 'hate speech,' which means nothing but dissenting from leftist orthodoxy? Not Christians.

      In fact, science shows that Christians are far more tolerant than secularists. It is the Left who wants people fired from their jobs, shouted down when speaking, hounded off campus, harassed in restaurants, and banned from the public square for dissenting from their atheistic worldview.

      Psychological projection is what comes to Leftists naturally—meaning that they unceasingly attribute their own undesirable feelings and ideas to those they despise. For instance, no one is truly more intolerant than those who make ‘Tolerance’ their byword. No group projects more sheer hatred every day in social media than those who make ‘Hate’ their shibboleth. No one decries ‘people forcing their ideas down my throat’ more than Leftists who do exactly that and are proud of it. No one is more bigoted than those who scream ‘Bigot’ at those with whom they disagree. No one is more racist than those who use the word ‘Racist’ constantly as an insult. No one is more judgmental than those who say “Don’t judge!” all day every day at those they are judging to be deserving of their hatred. Those who demand Diversity demand uniformity of thoughts and words.

      Constantly I see Leftists complaining that Conservatives or Christians are ‘trying to legislate morality’ and ‘shoving your morals down our throats.’ And yet, the Left (Atheist Socialists) constantly legislates what they see as ‘moral’ and tries to prohibit what they see as ‘immoral.’

      Surely all Leftists think their holy trinity of racism, sexism, and disapproval of homosexual behaviors are all ‘immoral.’ In fact, so-called ‘same-sex marriage’ activists argued before the Supreme Court that it was ‘immoral’ to oppose what they wanted.

      Leftists all the time say it is ‘immoral’ to deny ‘global warming’ schemes to redistribute trillions of our dollars to the Third World. MLK said segregation was ‘immoral.’ Just the other day a prominent Democrat said it was ’immoral’ for a nation as rich as us not to feed all its children. Even the fight against slavery by Republicans was on the grounds that it was ‘immoral.’

      Randy Godwin ~ There is only one Gospel, not four. The four books are called the Gospel 'according to' Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

      Although the message of the Gospel - the word literally means 'the Good News' - is always the same, the presentation of it can vary by employing different terms that might make more sense to a particular audience.

      The Apostle Paul did not invent Christianity; nor did he distort it in any way. He was the first person who fully grasped the meaning of the Gospel, and the man chosen to explain it to the world.

      John became the most Christ-like of the disciples. Therefore, marvelous spiritual insights were revealed to him, which he eloquently conveys in the five books he wrote of the New Testament. With words of unusual brilliance and beauty, truth and wisdom, John reveals to us the deepest spiritual teachings of our Lord. The best-loved book of the Bible today is the Gospel According to John, published in about AD - which literally means 'The Year of Our Lord' - 90.

      John Mark the Evangelist not only wrote one of the eyewitness accounts of the Gospel, in around AD 51, he also traveled with Paul and Barnabas on long missionary journeys; and worked as an interpreter for Peter in Rome.

      The Gospel According to Luke and the Acts of the Apostles were written by an historian of the first magnitude, who in simple but elegant narratives displays a keen eye for detail, describing perfectly the towns and islands of his times. A thorough investigator who interviewed many eyewitnesses, Luke pays great attention to the roles of women in the story of the Gospel. Published in AD 63, his books are the authentic account of the birth of the Christian Church.

      Matthew became an eyewitness to the life, resurrection, and ascension of Christ. He then would exercise his gifts as a fine teacher and writer. The Gospel According to Matthew, written in about 48, is the first and the most widely read account of the words and life of Jesus.

      I didn't realize those guys claimed they wrote the books. "According to;" and "As told to" isn't a definitive claim of authorship. Yes, a lot of historical info is used in the Bible just as in "Gone With the Wind."

      Atlanta was real, the Civil War Battles really happened, but one cannot claim Mammy and Scarlet really existed, can they? Naturally the writers added in info to make the Bible appear factual, all novels do this.

      In my experience, religious people of all beliefs are the most judgmental of all, and believe me, I live on the very buckle of the Bible Belt. You can't swing a dead cat around here without hitting a Xtian up side the head! :P

      Randy Godwin ~ I did not mean 'lunatic fringe' as an insult. I assume you know that even 99.9% of atheist historians believe Jesus was a real person. They just do not believe the Gospel.

      ‘Do not judge’ is the Bible phrase most often quoted by those who do not believe in the Bible. God does disapprove of some kinds of judging but approves and actually commands others.

      We are to correct those who spread lies about God, Jesus, or the Bible; those who misrepresent or deviously take Scripture (sacred writings) out of context. ‘Judge not’ never meant ‘Do not confront evil’ or ‘Do not denounce sin.’

      Randy Godwin ~ The magnitude of the achievements of the original Christian missionaries cannot be overstated. Everywhere they went they were opposed. Nothing could have been less likely to win converts than preaching about a crucified criminal. The eleven men Jesus commissioned to take the Gospel to the whole world were not distinguished, had no influential backers, and even in their backwater of a nation they were nobodies.

      If Jesus’s body had been discovered, there would be no Christian religion. Why would Jesus’s disciples have fabricated His being raised from the dead? They faced bitter persecution from both Jews and Romans for believing it.

      It is highly unlikely that people would be willing to die for a story they knew to be false. If He were not raised, his Apostles must have invented the story. And all these men were devout Jews, who knew they would face eternal damnation for lying about God or His Christ.

      Randy Godwin ~ The only writer of the Bible who was not Jewish is Luke the Evangelist. While Paul wrote the most books in the Bible (14), Luke wrote almost as many words in his two voluminous volumes: The Gospel According to Luke and the Acts of the Apostles.

      Even secularists admit Luke was an historian of the first magnitude. He displays a keen eye for detail, describing perfectly the towns and islands of his times. A thorough investigator who interviewed many eyewitnesses, Luke is surely as trustworthy as any historian.

      Where is it said in what I wrote that Tacitus lived during the time of Jesus' miracles?

      You don't read well, do you? And you want others to believe that YOUR research is above and beyond the authority of historians who wrote about Jesus' crucifixion? Come on!!

      There is no mention in my comment that Cornelius Tacitus lived during the time of Jesus' miracles. [If you're a "researcher," and you missed the forest in the trees in my comment, or if you extracted from texts in the past that which you WANT to true even when it isn't true, you would be disqualified as a "researcher."]

      James, you have driven your points home very well but there are three types of learners

      visual learners

      kinesthetic learners and

      auditory learners

      Maybe this video will drive home the truth to those who aren’t getting it.

      Of course, they have to want to learn before they view it.

      Interesting you find my research based on "hate", James. That's like saying I hate the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus. I was born into a Xtian family, but I soon realized the Xtian faith is based on all sorts of contradictions in the New and Old Testaments.

      Xtian's try mightily to prove even the existence of Jesus while arguing against the biblical prophecies in some cases. Just because I do not buy into your beliefs is no reason to conclude I hate a person I never believe existed. Not even a good try, James.

      Ron Koehler ~ Thank you ever much for coming by to read my piece. I am so glad you enjoyed it and you are quite welcome.

      I could not agree with you morewhen you say: "You must realize most will not accept it because they are under a strong delusion. Jesus said, " I am the Way the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6 Most will not accept this as Truth because they are dominated by their flesh and are not Spiritually minded. They are lovers of pleasure and their own will more than lovers of God. Pawns of satan."

      There you have it, brother. Faith, Hope, and Love to you.

      T ~ Thanks for chiming in. I agree with you wholeheartedly. To those who constantly clamor, "Show me a sign!" God refuses. He is not a performing seal. He does not have to justify himself to any puny man.

      Randy Godwin ~ You are too hung up on the way YOU would have brought Jesus onto the world stage, like Obama some kind of political figure whom the secular world idolized. Like Elvis. How come He wasn't famous during His time on Earth like Julius Caesar? That's how you'd have done it had you been in charge of Creation.

      You know nothing of God if you don't grasp that He doesn't do things the way you or I would. He does things in a way that all but the unthinking or the dishonest or those with scales on the eyes of their hearts would grasp the supernaturalness of it all. Not like other public figures to where you could say, "See! That Jesus was just like Napoleon."

      'Here is a man who was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman. He never owned a home. He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family. He never went to college. He never traveled two hundred miles from the place He was born. He never did one of the things that usually accompany greatness. He had no credentials but Himself...

      'While still a young man, the tide of popular opinion turned against him. His friends ran away. One of them denied Him. He was turned over to His enemies. He went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed upon a cross between two thieves. While He was dying His executioners gambled for the only piece of property He had on earth – His coat. When He was dead, He was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.

      'Nineteen long centuries have come and gone, and today He is a centerpiece of the human race and leader of the column of progress.

      'I am far within the mark when I say that all the armies that ever marched, all the navies that were ever built; all the parliaments that ever sat and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man upon this earth as powerfully as has that one solitary life.'

      Thanks to Dr. James Allan Francis for that (1926).

      There is something supernatural about that story. And those who work for the Devil spend their days trying to cast doubt on it because like their master, they hate Him.

      Cynthia, Tacitus didn't live in the time of Jesus's miracles, so his reports are simply hearsay. Josephus, on the other hand, was a contemporary and didn't mention Jesus at all. Josephus's early writing was corrupted by others in an attempt to include JC into his writings, but fortunately there are original copies which show this was simply an effort to legitimize the existence of Jesus.

      Good try, but I've researched Tacitus before, as well as Josephus and Pliny the elder who were living in Rome during JC's supposed lifetime.

      Randy, Cornelius Tacitus, another important Roman historian, lived approximately between AD 56 and 120. Modern historians view his Annals (which covers Roman emperors Augustus to Nero) to be the best source of information about this period in Roman history.

      It is from Tacitus, for example, that we know that Nero blamed a devastating fire that happened in Rome in AD 64 on Christians. Wrote Tacitus: “Therefore, to squelch the rumor, Nero created scapegoats and subjected to the most refined tortures those whom the common people call ‘Christians,’ hated for their abominable crimes. Their name comes from Christ, who, during the reign of Tiberius, had been executed by the procurator Pontius Pilate.”

      Though scholars do not know where Tacitus obtained the information he used in Annals, they know he had access to the Acta Senatus, the Roman Senate’s archives of its activities. Those Roman records could have contained reports of Jesus’ crucifixion, and he could have retrieved the details from there. Or he could have learned the facts while he was proconsul in Asia.

      Tacitus’ writing confirm the New Testament accounts that Tiberius and Pilate were in power when Jesus was crucified. Tacitus also points to the continued growth of Christianity in the years shortly after Jesus died, as reported in the New Testament book of Acts. His report clearly demonstrates the remarkable resolve of Jesus’ earliest followers, and the growth of the movement Jesus founded. It is because Tacitus is held in such high esteem by modern historians that his Annals carry such weight.

      Professor Casey Elledge of Gustavus Adophus College holds this view of early non-Christian sources, including Tacitus, Josephus, and Seutonius:

      “The testimonies of ancient historians offer strong evidence against a purely mythical reading of Jesus. In contrast to those who have denied the historical evidence of Jesus altogether, judging him merely to have been a mythological construct of early Christian thought, the testimonies of the ancient historians reveal how even those outside the early church regarded Jesus to have been a historical person. It remains difficult, therefore, if not impossible, to deny the historical existence of Jesus when the earliest Christians, Jewish and pagan evidence mention him.”

      So Jesus thought he fit the Hebrew prophecies, James? Naturally he would claim he did, but there's no proof he ever existed. Find him mentioned anywhere else than the Bible and you'll have something to argue with.

      None of his so-called miracles are mentioned by any of those contemporary historians living in the same area as he. No zombies walking the streets, no day turning into night, no feeding the multitudes, healing the sick, or making the blind see, or raising the dead. But then, they probably wouldn't notice such everyday events. LOL!

      Randy Godwin ~ I had missed your earlier comment with the link you kindly provided from Christianthinktank. I did read it just now. Your writer asks, "How people can believe Jesus was the promised Messiah." Easy. And I have already given you the answer.

      "Jesus taught his disciples that the Old Testament proclaimed His coming. Christ Jesus openly identified himself as the Messiah of Jewish prophecy."

      So either Jesus is a liar or the guy who wrote your article is mistaken. You side with him. I'll side with Jesus.

      Paula ~ Thank you for taking the time to read my article. I appreciate you sharing that background on Rex Tugwell.

      I have been up in your neck of the woods! I once spent a summer on Seneca Lake, in Burdett to be exact, right near my namesake, Watkins Glen. :-)

      I drove around that area in a pretty good radius, just checking things out. Went on a winery tour as well. Very pretty country. Nice people. Relaxing atmosphere.

      Awdur ~ Thank you for visiting my Hub. I enjoyed your most excellent remarks, especially this: "Students are no longer encouraged to use their imaginations.... to create..... to dream. Unfortunately, much of the nonfiction they are exposed has itself been victimized by revisionism.... which in my eyes makes Common Core dangerous to the core."

      Right on.

      Thank you for such an insightful article. You must realize most will not accept it because they are under a strong delusion. Jesus said, " I am the Way the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6 Most will not accept this as Truth because they are dominated by their flesh and are not Spiritually minded. They are lovers of pleasure and their own will more than lovers of God. Pawns of satan.

      For every Christian the end of the matter is Jesus returns as King, all will see it, and all will realize the Bible is God's letter to us and has been here for thousands of years.

      Until then life on Earth in Jesus is abundant with love, peace and joy for the believer HisStory is still being told and I rejoice. Dark days are ahead until The Light of Life returns.

      Grace to you and yours
