LETTER TO EDITOR: Liberals have created a national church

One of the greatest gifts that God has given man is freewill. Goodwill is an act of freewill. God does not compel us to give. Christians must give out of a willing heart, not grudgingly. Charity is reaching into one's own pockets to assist his fellow man in need, reaching into someone else's pocket hardly qualifies as charity. God instituted government to punish evil and curb destructive behavior; but instead of restraining evil, liberals endorse it; condoning sin in the name of choice. Rather than permit charity, they demand it; exacting taxes for social programs they deem worthy. The State has displaced the Church in child training, caring for the elderly and needy; while neglecting their duty to restrain evil. Judgment is been turned backward.

The same crowd attempting to silence Christians, have slowly and incrementally built a national church. Membership and tithing are not optional. Their pastor in the White House preaches wealth redistribution. Their deacons at the Capitol insist the congregation tithe 40 percent of their income. The IRS passes the collection plate. The evangelists spreading liberalism throughout the world are the news media and Hollywood elites. Professors and teachers proselytize in the classrooms. Their prophet: Karl Marx. Their teacher: Saul Alinsky. Their bible: the Communist Manifesto. Their apostles: Wilson, FDR, JFK, LBJ, Carter and Clinton. Their legacy: Income Tax, SSI, Welfare, New Frontier, War on Poverty, Medicare, Dept. of Ed. and Abortion.

Be careful what you say or think, the word police are out. Their church censors free speech by proposing "The Fairness Doctrine" to suppress media outlets that dare speak against their doctrines; and "Hate Crimes Legislation" to silence Christians from preaching repentance. The ethics police are Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

The church built by do-gooders; appear compassionate and caring to deceive the naive and entice the bleeding heart. With the pretense of sympathy and concern, they amass multitudes of blind followers. With the façade of helping the poor they've enslaved millions. Since Satan also appears as an angel of light, is it any surprise if his servants pretend to do what is right?

Examine the fruit of national churches: The oppression in communist countries, the destruction caused by socialism in the former USSR, and the devastation government programs like welfare and public housing have created in our own country on Indian reservations and in the inner cities. Lives are decimated wherever governments have enabled or acted as provider. In its wake, government has destroyed: hope, confidence, self-esteem, self-worth, independence, self-determination, incentive, motivation, drive, and productivity. Man's way leads to a hopeless end, God's way leads to an endless hope.

The liberal church has various denominations and doctrines: PETA: animal equality, ACORN: income sharing, NAACP: race dividing, UNIONS: workplace dividing, NOW: gender dividing, ACLU: Christian silencing, LGBT: perversion sanctioning, NEA: child indoctrinating, ALTA: ambulance chasing, Planned Parenthood: baby killing, and Greenpeace: environmental whackos; all belonging to the same religion "HUMANISM" and worshipping the same god "SELF"; all zealous for radical change and all united to transform our nation. Government has created a dependency on itself and supplanted God as Provider.

The following are messages preached by their Pastor: Spreading the wealth around is good! We are no longer a Christian nation! We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation! Jesus' "Sermon on the Mount" is radical. The constitution is an imperfect document with deep flaws. We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America!

"Fundamentally Transform." Their goal is to completely and dramatically change the very core, the most important, and basic structures of our nation's foundation. The constitution and God's influence are now bad. Evil is called good and good is called evil! Rom. 10:3. They being ignorant of God's morals, and seeking to set up their own morality, will not submit to God's morals.
