The Destroyer of Worlds - Apr 18

Jesus had much to say about the Devil. In John 8:44 we read:

He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Doesn't leave much wiggle room, does it? When Jesus spoke, He spoke with clear authority from the Father. Satan is the father of ALL LIES, no matter what anyone else tells you. We've all fallen a little short and we've all told a fib or two to gain the advantage. Why is this bit of scripture so important? Because Satan is still in the business of telling lies to the world. Satan is also a murderer and uses lies to get others to do his bidding. There is only one innoculation against the lies of the enemy and that is to put yourself under submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. It is the Holy Spirit, and only the Holy Spirit, that can give you discernment and see the Devil's lies for what they truly are. Please do this today. Your life here and the life to come is at stake.

By now you have heard of the shooting at Virginia Tech University. Please don't tell me that evil isn't real because it is. Mass murder is something that repells us, an aberration of the highest order. It appears to be the work of a 23 year-old South Korean student named Cho Seung-Hui. I'm actually relieved that there was no Islamist connection although that's small consolation to the families of the victims. In all, 33 victims are dead with many more wounded. A picture gallery from the BBC can be found here.

I think many a Christian living in Canada bemoans the fact the gay marriage is the law of the land. When you look at the Liberals and the Conservatives do you see any remarkable difference of opinion? I sure don't. Let's face facts here: The gays have won, hands down. Yep, we've lost and they're the victors. Which is not to suggest that they're right; they aren't and they never will be. Look, Satan hates marriage and the church because it was God Himself who ordained the two. So what better way to kill two birds with one stone than to introduce this? The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams faces a real schism between the more liberal churches in the West and the conservative Anglicans from Africa. Make no mistake, this is a real problem and Satan delights in the idea of causing divides in the global church. Satan despises the family and children too. In Germany, homeschooling is under assault. A 15 year-old teenager named Melissa Busekros has been separated from her family and placed in the psychiatric ward because her parents decided to home-school her. The message to Christian families from our secular gov'ts is both crude and simple: The state can do a better job of raising your kids than you can. I mean this stuff reads like a horror novel! You should also read Faith Girl's post about finding a high school for her little ones and the trials she's enduring.

Not only is the church being undermined from within, it is being attacked from without as well. You can read about two pastors being assaulted with full complicity from the police in Madhya Pradesh, India. Or you can read about Assyrian Christians in Iraq being forced to convert to Islam or be killed. Don't be deceived. Islam was spread by the sword during Mohammed's time and is still being spread by the sword.

It should also come as no surprise that Satan hates the Jews and the nation of Israel most of all. As I reported last summer, Israel's latest war with Hezbollah left them intact. Because of this foolishness, I fear that there will be an even bigger and more destructive war later on this year. The lies that Hamas and Hezbollah tell their people are so transparent and downright laughable if not for the seriousness of the situation. So what they do is make every single preparation for war and when Israel decides to take action, they turn around and claim 'Israeli aggression'! The air is thick with their bullshit. Only a complete moron would believe even one percent of what Hezbollah readily provides to an all too gullible (and liberal) MSM.

In other news, it's been reported that Johnny Cash's home in Tennessee recently burnt to the ground. Turns out there is a God after all as Bee Gee Barry Gibb was set to take up residence in Cash's old home. Lemme see: Folsom Prison Blues vs. Stayin' Alive. Which song would you prefer?

To close out this post I've got two links from Live Science on how volcanic activity is linked to earthquakes and how the power of faith influences healing in patients.

Yes, the X-Def has been updated to the new version of blogger! It's also a little messed up as I've lost some stuff including my buttons. Hopefully I'll get things back into shape real soon. I also promise to post more often. A week between posts is not acceptable. Enjoy the new Christian Defender!
