Test All Things Pt. 6 – The Founding Fathers of America

founding-fathers

Is America rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ?

&

Where the founding Fathers of America believers in the gospel, and the God of the Bible?

These questions are important, because the average Christian is taught to think about the founding fathers, and the American revolution, as though both are rotted in Christianity. Many are also taught that Christian political activism, and its war against the dominate liberal culture of America, is their Christian duty in America.

A quote from Thomas Paine, one of the founding fathers, and the author of “Common Sense” and “The Age of Reason” proves that the claim of America being a Christian country, that was founded by Christians, should not be trusted, but further examined, because below is a clear, and bold, rejection of Jesus Christ, and the gospel.

The Age of Reason, page 111 & 112

It is not the existence, or non-existence, of the persons that I trouble myself about; it is the fable of Jesus Christ, as told in the New Testament, and the wild and visionary doctrine raised thereon, against which I contend. The story, taking it as it is told, is blasphemously obscene. It gives an account of a young woman engaged to be married, and while under this engagement she is, to speak plain language, debauched by a ghost, under the thomas paineimpious pretence (Luke, chap. i., ver. 35), that “the Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee.” Notwithstanding which, Joseph afterward marries her, cohabits with her as his wife, and in his turn rivals the ghost. This is putting the story into intelligible language, and when told in this manner, there is not a priest but must be ashamed to own it.*

*Mary, the supposed virgin-mother of Jesus, had several other children, sons and daughters. See Matthew, chap. xiii, verses 55, 56.
Obscenity in matters of faith, however wrapped up, is always a token of fable and imposture; for it is necessary to our serious
belief in God that we do not connect it with stories that run, as this does, into ludicrous interpretations. This story is upon the face of
it, the same kind of story as that of Jupiter and Leda, or Jupiter and Europa, or any of the amorous adventures of Jupiter; and shows, as
is already stated in the former part of the Age of Reason, that the Christian faith is built upon the heathen mythology.

How important is Thomas Paine?

Another founding father, John Adams, stated Paine’s importance in this way:

Without the pen of the author of Common Sense, the sword of Washington would have been raised in vain. [5]

In his book, “The age of Reason”, Paine openly rejected the gospel of Jesus Christ, and affirmed Deism as the true religion. Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams, were also Deists.

The founding fathers of America established the American Constitution, which many American Christians have been deceived by. The deception is the belief that God wants Christians, and the common citizens, to revolt against tyrants, such as the king of England, and anyone who tries to change the constitution.

Does God want the common citizens to rebel against those in authority?

Exodus 22

28    “You shall not revile God, nor curse a ruler of your people.

Does Christ want his followers to rebel against their oppressors.

Luke 20

21    Then they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You do not show personal favoritism, but teach the way of God in truth:
22    Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”
23    But He perceived their craftiness, and said to them, “Why do you test Me?
24    Show Me a denarius. Whose image and inscription does it have?” They answered and said, “Caesar’s.”
25    And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

Romans 13

1    Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.
2    Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.
3    For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same.
4    For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.
5    Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake.
6    For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing.
7    Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.

1Peter 4

11    Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul,
12    having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.
13    Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme,
14    or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good.
15    For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men —
16    as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God.
17    Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.
18    Servants, be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh.
19    For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully.
20    For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God.
21    For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:
22    ” Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth”;
23    who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously;
24    who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness — by whose stripes you were healed.
25    For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

1Timothy 6

1    Let as many bondservants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and His doctrine may not be blasphemed.
2    And those who have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brethren, but rather serve them because those who are benefited are believers and beloved. Teach and exhort these things.

Indeed, the founding fathers of America has led many Christians astray during the time of the revolution. However, they have been dead for almost two hundred years. Therefore, Christians are not being led astray by the founding fathers today. Instead, those who are still promoting the idea that America is a Christian nation, that was founded by Christians, are the real problem in the church. They must be corrected, because they are misleading, and confusing Christians throughout the church in America. Also, some, such as David Barton, Peter Lilback, and Kirk Cameron, have dedicated themselves to deceiving Christ’s church in America into following a false Christianity, which is a nationalist cult, which claims to be Christianity, but is really just a, dominionist, social gospel. According to Scripture, these kind of people must be marked, and avoided.

Romans 16

17    Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.
18    For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.
19    For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil.

The New Jesuit Pope & His Dark Past

JESUITPOPE

TheHuffingtonPost.Com

The election of Pope Francis, previously Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, has resurfaced a decades-old controversy surrounding the kidnappings of two Jesuit priests.

Bergoglio was a high-ranking official in the Society of Jesus of Argentina when a military junta was installed in the South American country in 1976. According to the Los Angeles Times, priests Orlando Yorio and Francisco Jalics were kidnapped in May of that year by the navy. “They surfaced five months later, drugged and seminude, in a field,” the Times reported. A 2005 lawsuit accused Bergoglio of unspecified involvement in the abductions. Reuters explains that “the military government secretly jailed [Yorio and Jalics] for their work in poor neighborhoods.”

A spokesman for Bergoglio called the claims “old slander.”

Reuters has more details:

“According to “The Silence,” a book written by journalist Horacio Verbitsky, Bergoglio withdrew his order’s protection of the two men after they refused to quit visiting the slums, which ultimately paved the way for their capture.Verbitsky’s book is based on statements by Orlando Yorio, one of the kidnapped Jesuits, before he died of natural causes in 2000. Both of the abducted clergymen survived five months of imprisonment.

‘History condemns him. It shows him to be opposed to all innovation in the Church and above all, during the dictatorship, it shows he was very cozy with the military,’ Fortunato Mallimacci, the former dean of social sciences at the Universidad de Buenos Aires, once said.

Those who defend Bergoglio say there is no proof behind these claims and, on the contrary, they say the priest helped many dissidents escape during the military junta’s rule.”

Per the Associated Press, “Yorio accused Bergoglio of effectively handing them over to the death squads by declining to tell the regime that he endorsed their work. Jalics refused to discuss it after moving into seclusion in a German monastery.” Bergoglio discussed the incident with Sergio Rubin, his authorized biographer.

More from AP:

“Both men were freed after Bergoglio took extraordinary, behind-the-scenes action to save them – including persuading dictator Jorge Videla’s family priest to call in sick so that he could say Mass in the junta leader’s home, where he privately appealed for mercy. His intervention likely saved their lives, but Bergoglio never shared the details until Rubin interviewed him for the 2010 biography.”Bergoglio testified about the matter in 2010 after twice refusing to appear in open court, but “his answers were evasive, human rights attorney Myriam Bregman said.”

Italy Politics Elections.JPEG-02841

JourneyManPictures –

As Italy’s elections hit a stalemate, this report produced immediately before the vote offers a strong insight to the issues at the heart of the deadlock. Featuring all 4 of the top players, it explores a fragile economy and pantomime politics.

“A lot of our leaders look like they arrived yesterday from the moon. Instead, they’ve been in a crucial position for 20 years.” Chairman of Ferrari, Luca di Montezemolo, is deeply frustrated. Along with a number of other top Italian entrepreneurs, he believes that ‘brand Italy’ is being tarnished across Europe by the country’s poor political leadership. “Berlusconi has been a big delusion. He announced the liberal revolution and unfortunately he didn’t do it.” Italy changes governments like a Milan model changes outfits and now that it’s all up for grabs again this weekend, is there really much of a chance any of the four front-runners can change things for the better? Bersani, the man many are tipping to lead Italy after the elections, says his top priority will be to repeal laws that have allowed Berlusconi to avoid prison, despite having more than 100 cases brought against him. Yet Berlusconi’s chances are improving in the polls and it’s expected his party will control the Senate. Meanwhile, current leader Mario Monti, the man they call ‘Super Mario’ after he pulled Italy back from the brink of economic collapse, looks set to be thrown out by voters. “I cannot claim to have the glamour and the ability to entertain audiences that my predecessor, Mr Berlusconi, is very excellent at,” Monti shrugs. Whatever the result this weekend, it is sure to be a dramatic battle.
