As I have warned in past posts, our blessed country, America, is “circling the drain.” Our secular Mainstream Media, Hollywood, our liberal churches and our recently elected officials are bound and determined to eliminate Fundamental Christianity from the face of America and quietly allow a substitute for it, which is militant Islamofascism.Here is an article in World Net Daily, written by a brave and wise Orthodox Rabbi, Daniel Lapin, who is crying in the wilderness for Christians to wake up. He warns, “You are under attack.” “Without a vibrant and vital Christianity, America is doomed, and without America, the West is doomed.”
[A] serious war is being waged against a group of Americans. I am certain that if we lose this war, the consequences for American civilization will be dire.
There is no better term than propaganda blitzkrieg to describe what has been unleashed against Christian conservatives recently.
Consider the long list of anti-Christian books that have been published in recent months. Here are just a few samples of more than 30 similar titles, all from mainstream publishers:
“American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America”
“The Baptizing of America: The Religious Right’s Plans for the Rest of Us”
“The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason”
“Piety & Politics: The Right-wing Assault on Religious Freedom”
“Atheist Universe: The Thinking Person’s Answer to Christian Fundamentalism”
“Thy Kingdom Come: How the Religious Right Distorts the Faith and Threatens America”
“Religion Gone Bad: The Hidden Dangers of the Christian Right”
What is truly alarming is that there are more of these books for sale at your local large book store warning against the perils of fervent Christianity than those warning against the perils of fervent Islam. Does anyone seriously think America is more seriously jeopardized by Christian conservatives than by Islamic zealots? I fear that many Americans believe just that in the same way that many pre-World War II Westerners considered Churchill a bigger threat than Hitler.
Some may say that today’s proliferation of anti-Christian print propaganda is nothing to become worried about. To them I ask two questions:
First, would you be so sanguine if the target of this loathsome library were Jewish? Just try changing the titles in some of the books I mention above to reflect anti-Semitism instead of rampant anti-Christianism and you’ll see what I mean.
…. I would advise you not to underestimate the power of books to alter the behavior of the American public, and I fear for an America influenced to detest Christianity by this hate-filled catalog.
It is not just books but popular entertainment also that beams the most lurid anti-Christian propaganda into the hearts and minds of viewers. ….. The brilliant Jewish moviemaker Sacha Baron Cohen, [Borat]…..has revealed nothing other than the latent anti-Christianism of America’s social, economic and academic secular elites.
Even the recent PBS documentary, “Anti-Semitism in the 21st Century: The Resurgence,” managed to do more attacking Christianity than defending Judaism.
Richard Dawkins, an Oxford University professor, is one of the generals in the anti-Christian army of the secular left. ….he asks, “It’s one thing to say people should be free to believe whatever they like, but should they be free to impose their beliefs on their children?” He suggests that the state should intervene to protect children from their parents’ religious beliefs. Needless to say, he means Christian beliefs, of course.
The war is against those who regard the Bible to be God’s revelation to humanity and the Ten Commandments to be His set of rules for all time. Phase one in this war is to make Christianity, well, sort of socially unacceptable.
Tyranny comes when citizens are seduced into trading freedom for the promise of safety and security.
Considerably more intellectual energy is being pumped into the propaganda campaign against Christianity than was ever delivered to the anti-smoking or anti-drunk-driving campaigns.
If they succeed, Christianity will be driven underground, and its benign influence on the character of America will be lost. In its place we shall see a sinister secularism that menaces Bible believers of all faiths. Once the voice of the Bible has been silenced, the war on Western Civilization can begin and we shall see a long night of barbarism descend on the West.
Without a vibrant and vital Christianity, America is doomed, and without America, the West is doomed.
Which is why I, an Orthodox Jewish rabbi, devoted to Jewish survival, the Torah and Israel am so terrified of American Christianity caving in.
Many of us Jews are ready to stand with you. But you must lead. You must replace your timidity with nerve and your diffidence with daring and determination. You are under attack. Now is the time to resist it.
How do we Christians resist it? True Bible Believing Christians must begin to learn the importance of sharing their faith effectively and continually. Our fight is not a secular warfare but a spiritual battle, using God’s Word.
If you are interested in sharing your faith in Christ but are not sure how, or if you are not sure of Heaven, please contact me and I will do my best (by God’s Grace and His Word) to help you.

Bro. Jack- I have started a series on the emergent church and postmodern thought!
It is based on D. A. Carson’s book, “Becoming Conversant With The Emerging Church”, lots to chew on, and some excellent points made!
Any input would be of value!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!
‘Tis happening right before our eyes. The kindly Jewish Rabbi sees it, yet our “churches” and politicians see it not.
Get about our Father’s business!
In Christ eternally,
And so it has begun, the war…G*D made it very clear that HIS people cannot change the world. All we can do is testify, baptise and disciple. HE has to do the changing, and “that old dragon” has been given power to make war upon the saints…
Those of us who have read HIS Word are not surprised.
I hope that we are prepared to be about our Father’s Business, and not allow ourselves to be lured down rabbit trails! Or frightened by what difficulties lie before us, let us finish strong!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!
