Crashing Times of Crisis

By Ray Gano

Well we just past the 60 day mark for Obama as our president. I am amazed at everything he is doing, and not in a good way.

Many speculated, even myself that he would do the standard wait for his first four years to be over then push through what he wanted.

Nope, no waiting here.

Just in the last sixty days he has signed an Executive Order reversing Bush's stand on stem cell research.

He is spending this nation very quickly into a 4th world nation via his "stimulus" bill.

He and his democrat buds are trying to make gardening and raising livestock for one’s own use against the law HR 875, while all the time Michelle Obama plants her own little garden at the white house.

Create (reinstate with more regulation) a draconian gun ban; which almost outlaws everything except a black powder flint lock and musket.

Recanted the ban on abortions overseas and is now footed by the tax payer.

Sending millions to Israel’s enemies and helping them build a terrorist training camp.

This is just a short list, there is a lot more that could be covered.

He is doing a fine job of literally killing this nation. In fact I would be very surprised that this nation is still this nation by the end of his first four years and it is replaced with a Marxist socialist form of government.

Folks, I bring all of this up because most likely laws will be created to shut the mouths of Christians and in most cases make the Christian a second rate citizen.

On September 17 2003, Canada's House of Commons passed a bill that adds sexual orientation as a protected category in Canada's genocide and hate-crimes legislation. The bill criminalized public expression, including Sunday sermons, against homosexual behavior. Those convicted of violating the new law face up to five years in prison.

Canada has already been prosecuting pastors and Christians who are standing upon scripture.

Do you know that there was a time when the bible was banned and burned by none other than the Christian Church itself?

"Canon 14. We prohibit also that the laity should not be permitted to have the books of the Old or New Testament; we most strictly forbid their having any translation of these books." - The Church Council of Toulouse 1229 AD Source: Heresy and Authority in Medieval Europe,Scolar Press, London, England copyright 1980 by Edward Peters, ISBN 0-85967-621-8, pp. 194-195

The Council of Tarragona of 1234, in its second canon, ruled that:

"No one may possess the books of the Old and New Testaments, and if anyone possesses them he must turn them over to the local bishop within eight days, so that they may be burned..." - The Church Council of Tarragona 1234 AD; 2nd Cannon - Source : D. Lortsch, Historie de la Bible en France, 1910, p.14.

Pope Pius IV had a list of the forbidden books compiled and officially prohibited them in the Index of Trent (Index Librorum Prohibitorum) of 1559.
This is an excerpt :

"Whoever reads or has such a translation in his possession... cannot be absolved from his sins until he has turned in these Bibles...Books in the vernacular dealing with the controversies between Catholics and the heretics of our time are not to be generally permitted, but are to be handled in the same way as Bible translations..." - Rule IV & Rule VI Die Indices Librorum Prohibitorum des sechzehnten Jahrhunderts (Tübingen, 1886), page 246f. Source: The Reformation, by Hans J. Hillerbrand, copyright 1964 by SCM Press Ltd and Harper and Row,Inc., Library of Congress Catalog Card Number 64-15480, pages 474, 475.

Can you imagine the seeker sensitive church today, which stands with Obama and the rest of this pluralistic world, turning against bible believing Christians?

I can and as I have pointed out above, it has happened before.

J. Vernon McGee, one of my favorite pastors and a student of Bible Prophecy stated that eventually the Christian church in America will have to go underground and that the attack against them will come from denominational churches.

With all the modern versions of the bible out there, I can honestly see the powers that be out law only one bible, the King James Version. The KJV is what I use and what I stand upon and I have many issues with modern versions. Some of you may disagree with me, but the way God’s word speaks to me through the KJV is like none other. There is power and conviction in the KJV that I do not see in any other version of the bible out there.

I do not know if you really realize something. The enemy has done a very good job of watering down the truth and has caused millions to say “hath God said” and even caused many to not even have the need to pick up God’s Word at all anymore.

It amazes me how many pastors no longer ask their congregation to “open God’s Word with me and go to___________”

Why should they when they have everything on an overhead projector.

What amazes me more is how many pastors use multiple versions to get their point across.

Want to make homosexuality ok, use the “gay bible.”

Want to make paganism and goddess worship ok, use the “gender neutral” bible

Got a pet sin, there is a bible out there that will help you condone that sin before man.

The church is in very bad shape, and they have forgotten their first love.

But those who have not forgotten their first love are now being persecuted and some are now giving their lives for the Lord all over the world.

How much longer do we have here in this nation before it is against the law to own and read God’s Word and be a bible believing Christian?

But what really stands out in my mind, how many people who claim the title will capitulate and go along with it?

That is what frightens me.
