Biblical Christianity has been under attack since Jesus Christ appeared on this earth in the Flesh 2000 years ago.
During the month of April this year we see a crush of books and movies attempting to destroy the message of Salvation in Jesus.
You’ve seen apostasy promoted on ABC, National Geographic and NBC. You’ve seen most of these books of lies on the best seller lists, The Gnostic gospels, the Da Vinci Code [the book and the movie], The Jesus Papers, the Gospel of Judas, ad nauseam.
If this weren’t bad enough, the ACLU’s war against Christianity, the supposed doctrine of “separation of church and state” and removing all vestiges of the Christian faith from every avenue of life continue as relentless as the tide in the Bay of Fundy.
The “religious” left is busy promoting anything to destroy all vestiges of Christianity and the evangelization of our country.
Despite all of this incessant drumbeat of anti-Christian rhetoric, just remember: Jesus is still risen… He still lives. His Salvation is still available to each and every person who will receive Christ by faith alone.
2 Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
Jesus said in Matthew 10:28 “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
There is NO WAY the power of these satanic messages can cause a believer in Jesus Christ to “lose” his faith, but these can cause him discouragement and disillusionment. On the other hand, the tragedy is that an unbeliever can be deterred from believing the truth by indulging in these lies, false-message books and movies.
As has been said in a book title, “Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth!” (Hal Lindsey)
The Good News message of salvation in Christ will not be stopped despite the extreme tactics of the left..
The attitude of the Apostle Paul should be the attitude of every believer who places their faith in Jesus for eternal life.
Philippians 1:20 “According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.”
1 Cor. 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; ……. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
The Truth will conquer and outlive the lies of those who attempt, through their puny efforts, to destroy the Gospel of Jesus.

Refusing to take our lithium lately, Bro?
Thank you, Brother Jack, for this message that is so timely in my life at this moment. Satan has been trying hard to disrupt our work at our blog for the last two weeks but I take that as meaning we must be doing something right! God has protected us and we are now moving forward once again.
That’s an interesting point, Jack — which is that a true believer cannot be damaged by falsehoods directed at his faith. The problem is that there are so many who can go either way. A constant drumbeat demeaning a faith doesn’t mean that people will expressly turn away, but it does mean that they’re belief will be diluted. They’ll believe in an abstract God, but they won’t subscribe to any specific articles of faith. Indeed, I think that’s what you see in California, where you’ve got all these New Agers subscribing to do-it-yourself religions, where they pick whatever appeals to them. A few crystals here, a few angels there. The undermining drumbeat kills off the faith of the weak. Perhaps that’s just the risk a faith runs in a Democracy. I guess it’s better than the alternative, which is a system where the state steps in and starts running the religion. As countries with official Catholic religions such as Spain, France and Italy show, nothing is a surer death knell for God than to allow Caesar to take over.
Amen bro. Jack! Beautifully said!
