This is what you would call a rebuttal? Or maybe I just have to speak out in general about so called “Christians”. There is a reason I don’t like to call myself “Christian” but prefer the term “Natsarim” and this article pretty much covers them all in one swoop of his keyboard! Its called: Embrace the Light. He starts off quoting Pope John Paul II stating “We are the Easter People and Hallelujah is our song!”—Pope John Paul II (1920-2005). Really? Are you kidding me? I don’t know about him but I am NOT an Easter person. Speak for yourself. Easter is Ishtar the fertility goddess and hence the season with fornicating rabbits laying eggs. See this article for more info on her: Easter? Biblical in Origin? Well Sort of…
A self professed “Christian” who is siding and agreeing with the Harlot Mystery Religion? Does that make sense to you? Well, neither does it make sense that millions of self professing “Christians” are following the Sunday sabbath established by none other than the Catholic church. The same chursh that claims to have as its head the living embodiment of “Christ” here on Earth. If THAT is not an ANTI-Christ please tell me what is? This living embodiment of their “christ” is called the Pope and he says he is INFALLIBLE, he says he can change laws (Yah’s sabbath we are commanded to keep) and he says he can changes times ( the dates of Easter for Passover, Christmas for the birth instead of the Feast of tabernacles commanded by Yah to be kept). Hmmm who else changes dates and times that we were warned about? Oh, yeah, the ANTICHRIST! Yeah, lets all follow what the Pope says, that will make Yahshua/Jesus ever so happy. NOT!
Then this person proceeds to quote something HE says Paul said in the bible: “As the apostle Paul admonished us, we should rejoice in the Lord always, not just on religious holidays such as Christmas and Easter, not just on Sundays, but always. For in truth every day is the Lord’s day, and every location a potential place of worship.” I now challenge this man to show me that quote where Paul mentions Christmas, Easter AND the Sunday Sabbath in the bible. Because it cannot be done. And IF he were to do his homework and research the quote he is referring to of Paul’s he would find the true Holy Days of Yah and the true Sabbath of Yah and NOT the Catholic imposed imposters.
Considering his next statement I can surmise that he also is one of these “once saved, always saved” guys as well. He states: “It has ever been thus—the ever-present glory around us, and our ignorance of it. Jesus knew all too well about our blindness, and forgave us our ignorance. “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” applies to all of us, not just the ones who crucified Him. When it comes to spiritual matters we are all dumb as a box of doorknobs most of the time.” Yahshua saying “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” was referring to the ones actively crucifying Him because it HAD to be done by someone…so they were forgiven for being that instrument by which it was carried out…just as Judas very well may have been too. Am I saying Yahshua does not forgive? NO, of course not! He is complete mercy and love and all that is good. He will forgive if you only ask. BUT you must seek Him out..the truth of Him, not just what someone else tells you about Him. You must be driven to find Him and have a REAL relationship with Him. You must WANT to follow His laws and commands as HE laid them out and no one elses substitute. I do not agree that Yahshua forgives our ignorance or His people would NOT be perishing for lack of knowledge, they would be fine, forgiven…its all good.
Now he quotes an athiest Carl Sandburg: “There is a wolf in me … There is a fox in me … There is a hog in me … There is a fish in me … There is a baboon in me … There is an eagle in me and a mockingbird … O, I got a zoo…I came from the wilderness.”—Carl Sandburg (1878-1967) “Wilderness” Um, NO. There is My Yahshua/Jesus the Christ in me. Again I say, speak for yourself!
Later he claims we should have a “respectful awe” of the Lord and not a fear as the bible says. I am saying to you that you had better fear Him who can take away your very existance! Yes, respectful awe is also a must but you had better fear your Father in Heaven just the same way a child fears his Father when he has done something wrong and repents. Because there will be unpleasent consequences if you do not repent and tell the truth. To say “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Tim. 1:7, is talking about this “fear of Yah” is to take this scripture completely out of context and use it for HIS own meaning and not the Father’s. This scripture is speaking against fearing people (the flesh) and things of THIS WORLD and also I would add even Satan and the fallen ones because we have been given the authority to OVERCOME them all by Yahshua ha’Mashiach/Jesus Christ the Messiah!
Now I am NOT atacking him or badmouthing him. But because of his position and the number of people he can influence with his words he definately needs to be way more careful and put more research into what he is saying and following. For the good of his readers and for the salvation of his own soul.
May Yahshua bless you all and open the eyes and ears of those willing to see and hear!
