FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, YOU WILL BE ON
This is David Bay, Director of Old Paths Ministries.
And this is the Cutting Edge, a radio program dedicated to warning and informing God's people. We are committed to the study and exposition of the inerrant, inspired and authoritative Word of God. The views expressed belong to us, and are not necessarily shared by this station.
Our society is deteriorating, and Bible-believing Christians are ill-prepared to face that deterioration. This radio program is dedicated to preparing God's people to meet the challenges of the Day, and to encourage obedience to the Word of God in being separated from worldliness and false doctrine.
The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented.
Few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the eyes of God, through the Bible, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always do try to here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.
We have repeatedly asserted that America has rejected its traditional Christian-Values National Foundation, replacing it with a Satanic-Values Foundation. New World Order writers have repeatedly stated that the Anti-Christ could not come unless a substantial proportion of the pop-ulation were first conditioned to accept him and his values. Not surprisingly, this change is attitudinal and means that entire populations have to accept the Non-Christian Values which Anti-Christ will embrace.
Today, we will examine several current news items which seem to show that, perhaps, a considerable majority of the American population has now accepted the values of Anti-Christ.
NEWS BRIEF: Providence Journal Bulletin, "Sex Magazines Not Legally Obscene Jury Says", 1-24-92. "The magazines -- all 355 of them -- were sexually graphic, showing bound and gagged women being whipped and beaten. The titles, such as Rape A Virgin Aunt and Two Cousins To Torture, incited sex-ual violence and relied heavily on the most offensive of the four-letter words. But...a jury of nine women and three men here refused yesterday to declare the material legally obscene."
One of the jurors, a 59-year old meat packer from Hampden, said that, although the material was offensive and deserved to be banned, we couldn't ban it because it inter-ferred with our Constitutional Guarantee of Free Speech, as provided by the First Amendment.
This story is shocking because this judicial decision did not come from a liberal, activist judge, but from ordinary American citizens. Since the early 1970's, we Christians have been mightily frustrated by activist judges who were making Anti-Christian decisions designed to move us toward a New World Order. We always have said that these decisions were so radical they would never be approved by the general population. This article seems to indicate that the on-going program of Values Change, which has been ongoing for over 20 years, is finally at the desired point to where a substantial proportion of the average population will possess the un-Christian values of the New World Order.
Now let us examine the probability that a majority of Americans now accept marital infidelity.
NEWS BRIEF: (The Sun Chronicle, "Poll: Most Don't Care", 1-28-92) Democratic Presidential Candidate Bill Clinton of Arkansas, continued to deny that he had carried on a 12-year sexual liaison with a professional singer, Ginger Flowers. The news media continued to batter Clinton on this issue, raising doubts as to whether Clinton could continue his Presidential campaign. After all, if Clinton could sexually cheat on his wife, toward whom he had professed life-long commitment, could his loyalty to the nation be trusted if he were elected President?
This question is an excellent one; we concur wholeheartedly that this is a correct basis for determining anyone's qualifications to be President. However, polls taken after Flowers admitted to an affair with Clinton, and after Mr. and Mrs. Clinton tacitly admitted past marital infidelity on CBS's 60 Minutes, showed that "80% of adults in the nationwide random survey...believed that Clinton should remain in the race whether or not he had an extra-marital affair." (p. A-6)
This shocking revelation clearly shows that Americans are no longer shocked by sexual adultery by its leaders. The sheer repetition of past revelations had clearly hardened our hearts. But, then, so has the sheer repetition of TV shows and movies, particularly the soaps, which grovel in sexual episodes outside marriage. In our seminar, we show that long-term TV and movie watching has two insidious effects:
This point is firmly driven home by an article in Time Magazine, 2-3-92, on this Clinton issue. Lance Morrow, in the article, "Who Cares, Anyway", p. 15, states, "The issue of a candidate's sex life is essentially a phoney" and that we should be concerned about the real news of the day: drugs, murders, AIDS, illiteracy, the economy, and abuse of children. Morrow never understands that all these problems are based in this issue of morality. However, to make his point, Morrow compares America in reality to America in TV soaps. "If America is only afternoon TV, then people will care, in a slack-jawed way, whether Bill was unfaithful to Hillary with Gennifer. It is the kind of question asked on soap operas and on Oprah and Geraldo and Donahue. When the program ends, the audience will mute a commercial and scratch itself, glance out the window, and see that reality still looks lousy. It will turn back to the TV..."
We could not have stated our case more succinctly. America has allowed itself to be steadily moved toward these Non-Christian values, night after night, week after week. Our national moral collapse is almost complete; the enemy is at the gates.
We have shown how the planners to the New World Order are utilizing the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan to effect many changes. Today, we will examine another critically important way in which this Plan is being utilized.
NEWS BRIEF: The Sun Chronicle, USA Weekend, "Throw The Bums Out", p. 4-6.
Retired Financial Planner from Tampa, Florida, Jack Gargan, has begun a grass roots campaign to convince voters this Fall to vote every single politician out of office. Jack said, "I know it's a radical idea, but that's the only way we're going to get our country back from career politicians." Jack created his organization, call Throw The Hypocritical Rascals Out, or THRO, in the summer of 1990.
Gargan literally believes the salvation of America lies in the successful implementation of his plan to defeat each and every incumbent politician. Why is Gargan so very angry? He lists several reasons:
Gargan was assured of a dramatic response, because polls have shown that the public's confidence in Congress has slipped below 20% and is falling still. Gargan ran several ads advertising his Plan, and the response was over-whelming. "In less than 6 months, Gargan raised more than $1.1 million from his fellow fed-up citizens..."
In addition to support from common citizens, Gargan has received some heavy-duty support.
Gargan knows he is facing a tough, up-hill battle. "In 1990, 31 of 32 senators were re-elected, as were 392 or 407 House incumbents..."
This campaign fits nicely into the Illuminist's Plan to utilize the effectiveness of the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan to convince Americans that their system is no good and needs to be replaced. I do not believe Gargan is knowingly involved in this New World Order Plan; I believe he is just completely fed up with the blatant, arrogant, and planned acts of incompetence and fraud by our elected representa-tives.
All this planned arrogance by elected officials is going to cause many Americans to support the abolition of our Constitutional form of government without even thinking seriously whether the replacement will be better or worse. Before the general public can have the time to debate this issue, the New World Order Planners will boldly step forward with their plan of benevolent totalitarian government. This change will occur either by Presidential Directive during a time of incredible crisis or by a Constitutional Convention. Do not be deceived; the New World Order cannot be implemented in America with our present system of Representative Democracy and our system of Checks and Balances. Zibignew Bzrezinski admitted this roadblock in his book, Between Two Ages. If this Plan succeeds, we have very little time left for our present system of Constitutional Government.
The drum beat continues to sound to convince Americans that homosexuality is normal, healthy, and just like heterosexuality. Remember, the New World Order Planners decided many years ago that one of the most potent short-term weapons to reduce the population of the world is homo-sexuality, both Gay and lesbianism, because this type of sex act does not produce babies.
Further, the New World Order is fatally opposed to Fundamental Christianity. The advance of homosexuality is an excellent weapon with which to break down public adherence to Christianity. Hitler used homosexuals toward this end in the days when he was trying to destroy Germany's democratic form of government. Once this destruction was completed, he turned on the Homosexual Brown Shirts, murdered their leaders and many followers. America has embarked on much the same path.
Consider two News Briefs which clearly show how this campaign to legitimize homosexuality is gaining momentum in the United States.
NEWS BRIEF: Providence Journal Bulletin, 1-9-92, "Homosexuality: Nature or Nurture", editorial by Arthur Caplan, Director of the Center For Biomedical Ethics at the University of Minnesota".
"...There is a strong biological contribution to homosexuality..It would appear that heredity plays an important role in causing homosexuality...Researchers from Northwestern and Boston Universities have published a paper in the Archives of General Psychiatry in which they announce that male homosexuality has its roots in chromosomes, not parenting."
Without doubt, if scientists could ever conclusively prove that homosexuality is biologically caused, God's prohibitions of it and His promised eternal punishment for it, would be rendered meaningless. For, how can God or any one else blame someone for biologically-determined homo-sexuality? This would be the same as God holding someone responsible for being left-handed or for being born black. Science is stepping forward to try to plant this very idea in the minds of millions of Americans. We should not be surprised, because New Age leaders have declared repeatedly that Science is their god and is one of the most important means by which mankind will achieve the New World Order.
I deliberately chose, as one of my examples above, the issue of being born black. Remember the statement from King Solomon in Ecclesiastes 1:9b that "there is nothing new under the sun?" In a book on the occultic history of the Ku Klux Klan, called The Fiery Cross, the author Wyn Wade, stated, "Medical science offered a number of comforting rationalizations to the effect that blacks were susceptible to a variety of exotic psychiatric impairments..." (p. 10-11). Science stepped forward with this evidence over 30 years before the Civil War, and it contributed greatly to the Southern white belief that black slavery was benevolent to both society and to the blacks themselves. In other words, Medical Science prostituted itself during this time to the Southern Establishment.
Now, 130 years later, science is trying the same trick. We Christians should have had our eyes opened by the debate over Evolution, but many of us still look to Science as an objective voice in this world. Remember also that some writers have boldly stated that, when Anti-Christ arises, both modern Scientific technology and Mass Media will cooperate to convince the peoples of the world that Maitreya the Christ is who he will claim to be.
Let us look at another example as to how people's attitudes are being changed by this debate.
NEWS BRIEF: Fortune Magazine, "Gay In Corporate America: What Its Like, And How Business Attitudes Are Changing", December 16, 1991, p. 42-56, Cover Story).
This article interviews many executives who are gay or lesbian. Without exception, these executives are portrayed as normal, highly professional and articulate, and very successful. This approach to acceptability is a very well thought-out Plan, since they are appealing to Americans whose main ambition in life is to acquire material possessions.
Remember, we are dealing with a prime example of how the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan is being successfully utilized to change the deeply-held attitudes of Americans on a very controversial issue, in this case, homosexuality. We passed Steps 1,2,3, and 4 several years ago, and the door to acceptability was opened just a crack. We are now in the process of seeing this door opening wider and wider, as we progress into Steps 5 and 6. Remember, these steps involve moderating the extreme after the public is no longer shocked by the controversial subject. Let us examine this article in enough detail to see how far open this door is swinging.
This article first shows how wide-spread homosexuality is in Corporate America: ""Official or unofficial, there's a group [of homosexual employees] in every large company in the U.S." (p. 43). Throughout this article, names of large and well-known companies are dropped to convey legitimacy. Companies such as Hughes Aircraft, TRW, American Express, AT&T, the Washington Law Office of Ogilvy & Mather, Tandem Computers, Apple Computer, Digital Equipment, Boeing, Coors, DuPont, Hewlett-Packard, and many others. Statistically, "more homosexuals work in science and engineering than in social services; 40% more are employed in finance and insurance than in entertainment and the arts; and ten times as many work in computers as in fashion". (p. 43). Stereo-types are exploded by this revelation. Most people perceive that homosexuals are concentrated in governmental social services, the entertainment and arts fields, and in fashion. Psychologists know that a person is more susceptible to new ideas when their traditional values have been upset. Thus, this information is provided at the beginning of the article so that people will be more open to subsequent revelations.
This article makes it quite clear that homosexuals comprise very important positions within these companies, that they are not limited to menial jobs. Positions are mentioned such as Vice-President, CEO (Chief Executive Officer), Speechwriter, Technical Analyst, and Investment Advisor. These prestigious positions can only be filled with highly intelligent, well-educated, and disciplined people, exactly the type of image which the homosexual community wants to project.
The objective of homosexuals in today's marketplace is to further encourage the process of "coming out of the closet", and to publicly, boldly display their sexual preference. They want to be accepted on the same basis as heterosexuals, without being afraid of being taunted, passed over for promotion, or fired. Homosexuality is to be viewed on the same level being a member of a different race or sex. They want government to force acceptance by law and private companies by internal edicts. One of the most important means to accomplish this goal in the private sector is to convince companies to sponsor training sessions, called "Sensitivity Training" or "Educational Diversity Training". These sessions promote the concept of acceptability, backing it with company sanctions and retaliation threats.
How well is this campaign working? This article states that some prestigious companies have so completely erased the stigma against homosexuality that they are pursuing homosexuals for job openings, feeling that "a workplace in which employees are comfortable being themselves is more productive". (p.54).
The ultimate goal is for Governmental and Private insurance companies to grant medical benefits for the lovers of homosexuals on the same basis as is now granted for heterosexual marriages. Once this is common practice, this nation has just officially accepted homosexuality as being normal, healthy, and just like heterosexuality. Our national parallel to Sodom and Gomorrah will be complete; our similar judgment will also be impending.
This door is swinging open far enough that companies are now pursuing the gay market for products and services. They recognize the huge dollars that are awaiting them, because:
To reach this lucrative market, companies are pursuing several parallel tracks simultaneously.
This shocking information speaks volumes about America's continuing march toward full and complete acceptance of homosexuality. Notice we have not even dis-cussed the pervasive support from the Federal Government. As we point out in our seminar, our Eternal, Unchanging God has expressed His hatred for the sin of the practice of homosexuality. God will not allow man to arbitrarily re-write the rules, as millions of people will discover, to their great consternation and horror, on Judgment Day.
However, there is also a national consideration to the emergence of homosexual acceptability in America. God considers that the sum total of private sins quickly adds up to a national condition. God has made holiness the moral condition necessary to the health of His universe. Whatever is holy is healthy. Evil is a moral sickness which 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. 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. God demonstrated His opposition to homosexuality by physically destroying Sodom and Gomorrah.
The key consideration in this debate, which no one is discussing, is that Sodom and Gomorrah were openly supportive of homosexuality at all levels of society: schools, churches, social organizations, the courts, and the law-making assemblies. We can easily see this situation by the Biblical account of the desire of the homosexual men and boys who surrounded Lot's house to demand that the Angels come out to have homosexual relations with them in public. Why weren't these men afraid of being arrested? Even today, in America, laws prohibit sexual relations in public and with minor boys. Clearly, these men did not fear being arrested because Sodom and Gomorrah had no laws prohibiting either public sex and sex with minor boys.
This type of change in American law is one of the major goals of the gay community. Public opinion is currently being manipulated so this legal change can be accomplished. Once this occurs, God's physical judgment will not be far behind.
But, why should we be surprised? Current world leaders are clearly trying to move all nations into the New World Order, which occultists are describing as the One-World Government, Economy, and Religion of which the Bible prophecies. If God allows these plans to be brought to fruition, the world will enter the period of the Great Tribulation, which we know is filled with God's judgments for sin and rebellion. Clearly, America is aligning herself spiritually with Satan in these last days, and is becoming ripe for God's physical judgment. These trends toward accepting homosexuality on the same basis of God's ordained heterosexuality are just one more sign post telling us how late the hour truly is.
What is your spiritual condition before God? Are you born-again through the blood of Jesus Christ, or have you been resisting the call of the Holy Spirit? The time is so late.
Are you a Christian that has fallen back into sin? Repent now and return to God's Holiness which only He can provide.
Are you a lukewarm Christian? Repent and return to your First Love for Jesus.
Are you involved in a church which is abandoning the Biblical teachings or is allowing Paganism to creep in? Repent and leave that church now, joining one that is remaining true.
Are you involved with an organization or a job which, by its very nature is offensive to God? This may be a job which produces or sells sinful material or it may be membership in a Secret Society like Freemasonry. Repent now and leave that organization.
We close with Jesus' warning in Revelation 18:4, "Come out from her...so that you may not share in her sins, neither participate in her plagues".
