THE CUTTING EDGE
NEWS BRIEF: "Some Christians view movies as a religious experience", by Christine Wicker, The Dallas Morning News, reprinted in The Providence Journal Bulletin, Lifebeat Section, page D-1, 5.
"As Camilla Ballard waits in the darkness for a movie to begin, she asks herself one question: 'Where am I going to find God in this film?' "
I cannot constrain myself. I must interject vehemently at this point. Why is anyone, but especially a Youth Pastor, as Ballard is later revealed to be, trying to find God in a movie written by an unsaved Hollywood screen writer, produced by an unsaved Hollywood producer, and played by unsaved actors and actresses? What has happened to the truth that God can only be found in the Holy Scripture? What has happened to the truth that God will not allow Himself to be revealed in a situation of inherent sinfulness? But, let us return to this incredible article.
"In L.A. Confidential, she had to look past profanity, sex, and violence for a glimpse of the Almighty. But she did find it -- in the unconditional love of a prostitute played by Kim Basinger. 'When her policeman lover beats her up, she just takes it. What a picture of God!' said the Youth Director at First Presbyterian Church of Dallas, referring to the Christ-like compassion of the Basinger character."
"Ballard is among a growing number of religious people who advocate going to the movies for what Baptist layman Bruce Ruggles calls 'an experience of worship'. He doesn't often find the taste of eternity he seeks, said Ruggles, but when he does, the experience can bring tears to his eyes. Like other similarly minded Christians, Ruggles said he doesn't rate films by the movie codes for violence and sex. He rates them by his own code for their 'ability to move me, to touch my humanity'."
Few religious articles have touched me as much as this one has. In fact, this article mightily convinces me that we are witnessing the soon appearance of Antichrist. In many articles, we report that the End of the Age prophecy of 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 shouts very loudly that Antichrist cannot arise until the true Christian Church goes into complete apostasy! Let us carefully read chapter 2, verse 3.
"Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day [Day of the Lord] will not come except the apostasy comes first [that great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come]; and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition)."
Of course, the "man of lawlessness" in this passage is Antichrist. He wanted to arise and take control of the earth in Paul's day, but the Holy Spirit restrained him. In fact, he cannot arise until the Christian Church falls far enough away from the truth of the Bible that the Holy Spirit writes "Ichabod" over the doorpost and departs. When we see this kind of huge apostasy occurring in Christian Churches, and in the members of those churches, we know we are looking at one of the most important prerequisites for the appearance of Antichrist. I have often stated that Liberal "Christian" leaders will be very surprised on the White Throne Judgment Day that their false teachings opened the door for Antichrist and all his abominations.
The fact that a Youth Director of a Presbyterian Church could espouse these totally false ideas of the Attributes of God tells me that this nation, and this world, has opened the door to Antichrist wide and deep.
Think for a moment what kind of god they worship. Their god is not the God of the Bible! To believe in this kind of Biblical god, they would have to tear out over half of the pages in their Holy Bibles, as we will demonstrate in a few minutes. No, their false god is the god of the New Age, who is only Love. He is like a doting, senile old grandfather, who loves his errant children no matter what they do, and can never bring himself to punish them. At the very end of all things, this "all-love" god will throw his arms out to everyone, saying, "I cannot bear to be without any of you for eternity. Come to Heaven with me after all".
In the meantime, this doting old grandfather will gladly be the punching bag for any and all of his worst sinners. Even though they are not sorry in the least for their hatred for him and their treatment of him, he still cannot punish them. He sits there and "just takes it", just as this prostitute of L.A. Confidential.
What a tremendous switch in the differing visions of God! Ezekiel saw a glorious view, of an Omnipotent God in His Heaven with His Holiness and purity, majesty and power. We encourage you to read of this account in Chapter 1 of Ezekiel. When this prophet saw this sight, he fell to the ground as a dead man, because even though he was far closer to God than others in Israel, he was still a sinful man who could not bear to look upon the Glory of God.
But these Liberal Christians see a far different god. They see him stripped of his dignity and power and majesty. They seem him emasculated and unable to act. Or, worse yet, they see him as just an old tottering Father Time, just loving everyone even if people were abusing him mightily. He loved them, so he just stood there and took it.
Let us review what the Bible has to say about the attributes of God. We discover that the true God of Scripture has many more attributes than just Love. Remember, each of these other attributes is equal to Love in power, effectiveness, and eternity. Let me introduce you to God, the True God, with Whom everyone will have to deal at the End of the Age in one way or another.
All men of the earth must come to a proper and mature understanding of God and of the times in which we are living. God thereof has created this earth and all inhabitants. History was pre-written by Him and revealed to us in His Word to man--the Holy Bible. If we are to hope to understand the times and signs indicating the End of the Age, we must understand God.
Unfortunately, few people in this world, or in this country, properly understand God today. In fact, 20th Century man has incredibly less of an understanding of God than did his average counterpart a century or two ago. There are several reasons for this dramatic decline in our knowledge and understanding.
1. 2 Timothy 3:13--"Evil men and impostors shall become worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived..."
People of this age have become more evil and rebellious, and more seekers of their own fleshly lusts. People like these "Christians" in this article, actually believe that their religious experience should enable them to "discover their own humanity"! Men throughout the ages of time have never had trouble "discovering their own humanity" because they are inherently sinful, and will naturally gravitate toward that sin nature.
2. Matthew 24:12--"Because sin shall abound (be multiplied), the love of many shall grow cold." The love for Jesus is much colder today than in the past. Mass Media, like movies and TV shows, fulfill this prophecy like no other entertainment medium in world history! Never before has it been possible to record sin in color and in just as much detail as if you were actually in the scene, and then simultaneously transmit this sin to all the peoples of the world! In smallest of towns, you can find these sinful movies and video rentals, as well as printed pornography. Because of this historically unique sin is being "multiplied" today, less people than ever before truly love Jesus Christ.
3. Great Bible Ignorance Exists.
As the result of all the points above, Satan has been able to introduce a great counterfeit truth. The lie that Satan has told--the partial truth--is that God is all-loving, and could never send anyone to an eternal Hell. This is precisely the belief that most people of this nation are relying upon to enter into Heaven.
But, God is perfect and infinite in ALL His attributes. Satan's greatest single victory has been to convince the world that God's character is only one-dimensional--love. Thus, people ignore all God's other attributes.
"The divine attributes are what we know to be true of God. He does not POSSESS them as qualities; they are how God is..." They ARE God's nature, and God can act only in conformity with His nature. [This section on God's Attributes is taken from Tozer, A.W., The Knowledge Of The Holy, Harper and Row Publishers, San Francisco, CA, 1961.]
GOD'S SPECIFIC ATTRIBUTES
1. The Infinity and Eternity of God (Isaiah 46:10)
Infinity is THE foundational attribute of God. It literally means limitlessness, and it ensures that EACH of God's attributes is equally infinite and eternal.
"God's eternity and men's mortality join to persuade us that faith in Jesus Christ is NOT optional. For every man, it must be Jesus Christ, or eternal tragedy."
Do you now see how God's eternity, when coupled with His Self-existence and His Self-sufficiency, form that unbreakable Rock, upon which our eternal assurance is solidly based? On the other hand, this same attribute of eternity means that what made God angry 5,000 years ago makes Him angry today. People will realize, too late, that God has not allowed any of His commandments to be changed in even one tiny bit.
2. The Divine Omniscience of God--Isaiah 40:13-14; or 1 Corinthians 1:24-25.
Definition: "To say that God is omniscient is to say that He possess perfect knowledge."
God's Wisdom is a logical part of His Omniscience. The idea of God as infinitely wise is at the root of all truth. Wisdom involves the ability to devise perfect ends and to achieve those ends by the most perfect means.
3. God Is Transcendent--Apart and Infinitely Above All Creation.
"We must not think of God as highest in an ascending order of beings...this would be to grant God eminence, even preeminence, but that is not enough; we must grant Him TRANSCENDENCE in the fullest meaning of that word."
God reigns infinitely beyond any of His creation.
4. God's Attributes --LOVE (1 John 4:8b) "God is love."
Because: God is self-existent, His love had no beginning.
" He is eternal, His love can have no end.
" He is infinite, His love has no limit.
" He is holy, His love is the ultimate of all spotless purity.
" He is immense, His love is incomprehensibly vast.
God's Goodness is absolutely perfect. Since man's highest goodness is not perfect and not constant, and since man also will produce evil thoughts or actions in his life, God cannot accept the imperfect good life which man has to offer Him. Man's best life is like an omelet, with five good eggs and two rotten ones, a mixture that will be putrid.
Love is also an emotional identification. It considers nothing its own, but gives all freely to the object of its affection.
Think of our spiritual condition. We sinful, rebellious people have no right to enjoy God's blessings for eternity. Our sinful actions and attitudes clearly show that we want nothing to do with God in this life. Therefore, one would only expect God to honor this attitude in eternity. We have no right to go to heaven, because we are partakers of Satan's rebellion.
But, thank God for His infinite mercy, "an infinite and inexhaustible energy within the divine nature, which disposes God to be ACTIVELY compassionate. Wherever and whenever God appears to men, He...is as merciful as well as just. He has always dealt in mercy with mankind, and WILL ALWAYS DEAL IN JUSTICE (ONLY) WHEN HIS MERCY IS DESPISED."
Satan's Counterfeit Truth about God's Love is that God is too loving to send anyone to an eternal punishment in Hell. This view ignores all of God's other attributes. God's attributes must be viewed as a circle without any component parts. All God's attributes flow together and none can be separated from the other. All His attributes are perfect and limitless. Therefore, God's Anger over sin is just as perfect and just as limitless as His Love.
5. The Immutability (Unchanging) Nature of God--(Hebrews 13:8; Malachi 3:6.)
In God, no change is possible; in men, change is not possible to escape. The law of mutation belongs to a fallen world, but God is immutable, and in him, people who are born-again find eternal permanence. However, the unbeliever is terrified of the concept of an unchanging God, because it means that His Commandments of 5,000 years ago are just as valid and just as weighty as they were originally. Further, it means that God's prophecies foretelling Judgment and Eternal Punishment are also going to occur. Therefore, the unbeliever goes to great lengths to convince others, and himself, that God really does not exist, or, if He does exist, that He changes, He evolves. Or that, if He exists, he is just as human and sinful and full of inadequacies as we are. People today are very comfortable with the "human god" they have created and think they are serving.
God has a wonderful and comforting view of the day of death for a believer versus the day of that believer's birth:
* Psalm 116:15, "Precious (important and no light matter) in the sight of the Lord, is the death of His saints.."
* Ecclesiastes 7:1b, "and the day of death is better than the day of one's birth."
To the born-again Christian, there will be no judicial Judgment resulting in eternal condemnation. Jesus taught this wonderful truth in John 3:18: "He who believes on Him (Jesus) is not judged; he never comes up for judgment; for him, there is no rejection, no condemnation: he incurs no damnation."
One other critically important word concerning the unchanging nature of God: His unchanging nature is what brought Israel back from the dead cemetery of nations in 1948--a miracle of major proportions, unequaled in history.
6. God Is Omnipotent and Sovereign--(Genesis 18:14; Matthew 19:26; Job 42:2; Isaiah 46:10).
Definition: Having all power. God is the source of all power in His universe. If God possessed any power less than absolute, He could never have created beings like us humans. However, God has created our current situation so that men are allowed to make their own choice. Man does have limited will for a limited time.
7. The Justice of God--(Amos 5:21-24; Isaiah 5:16).
God's attribute of Justice always goes hand in hand with His Holiness and Righteousness. God only acts in justice when man has consistently acted in rebellion to His commandments. God never acts impulsively or indiscriminately; He is always very precise when He exercises judgment upon a sinful, rebellious person. God's Justice stands forever against the sin in UTTER SEVERITY.
8. The Holiness of God--(Leviticus 19:2).
God has made holiness the moral condition necessary to the health of His universe. Whatever is holy is healthy. Evil is a moral sickness that must end ultimately in death. To preserve His creation, God must DESTROY whatever would destroy it.
Every wrathful judgment against nations in the history of the world has been a Holy act of preservation. God's wrath is His utter intolerance of whatever degrades or destroys.
This removal of the sinful individual or nation can be likened to a surgeon who radically removes a cancerous tumor from the body of a beloved patient. The patient lives only because the cancerous tumor has died. This concept has great importance in our study of America in all our articles on The Cutting Edge.
Thus, all Liberal people who think the way about God this Director of the First Presbyterian Church in Dallas, Texas, will discover that they were not only totally wrong but that they will be living through the ultimate lie of the Ages, i.e., the lie of Antichrist that he is Jesus Christ returned the second time. The mortal danger to these people is that they just might be further subjected to God's sealing of their deception, forcing them to believe this final lie from Antichrist. Listen to God's warning.
"... with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
These deluded people who think they can see God in sinful, sensual movies like L.A. Confidential just might find themselves totally believing in the lies of Antichrist, and following him with all their heart. Rejecting the truth of the Bible so they might be saved, they might suddenly be Divinely sealed in their love of sensuality so they would follow Antichrist.
One other final warning: God's attribute of Justice goes hand in hand with His Love. God is determined to one day allow all His true followers inherit the Earth, and enjoy its pleasures for eternity, unhindered by sin. But, to do that, God has to destroy all the sinners out of the entire Earth. Indeed, God promises that He will do exactly this, in the 7-year Great Tribulation Period. This period of unprecedented Judgment will cleanse all sinners and all sin out of the earth so Jesus Christ can reign for 1,000 years.
Consider the number of times the Bible speaks of words like Judgment.
One of the greatest Scriptures about eternal punishment and Hell came from Jesus' own lips. "I am come to send fire on the earth." [Luke 12:49]
Thus, you can see that people have to tear out entire sections of their Bibles, both New and Old Testaments, in order to believe that God is a God of Judgment to those who refuse to accept His precious Plan of Salvation, based as it is on the Substitutionary Death of Jesus Christ.
This unbelievable apostasy of Protestant Church leaders is another clear, irrefutable sign that the End of the Age is upon us. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually. If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
