How allies of George Soros helped bring down Wachovia Bank.
Soros, Lewis, and the Sandlers form a core group of billionaire activists and Democrat partisans who have formed a group called The Democracy Alliance. They realized that they could magnify their power by working in unison and tapping other wealthy donors to further their agenda (the superb Boston Globe article "Follow the money" is a good primer on how money and 527 groups have come together to have a huge impact on politics in America).
The Democracy Alliance is a major avenue to help them achieve their goals. The roster of its growing membership consists of a list of billionaires and mere multi-millionaires who collectively hope to give upwards of 500 million dollars each year to further promote a left-wing agenda. A partial roster of the Democracy Alliance membership can be found here.
Half a billion dollars a year can purchase a great deal of influence.
The Sandlers certainly know quite a bit about leverage from their savings and loan days.
Among the beneficiaries of their largesse: Air America, ACORN (a group that has very close and long lasting ties to Barack Obama and has a long history of engaging in voter fraud. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (basically a private detective group focused on the private faults and foibles of Republicans), Media Matters, a media watchdog group that engages in harsh partisan attacks against media figures and articles it considers supportive of Republicans). The list goes on and on.
They are not merely out to elect Democrats, but to also permanently realign U.S. politics and shift our society and culture in a far-left wing direction.
What's even worse...IT'S A DOUBLE WHAMMY!

Comment in previous post by Zee of Road Sassy
Thanks to Faultline U.S.A.'s excellent, informative, and comprehensive article about The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis, the Radical Left, and Barack Obama.
Update: Cross-posted at Maggie's Notebook.
YOU MUST READ THAT COMPLETE ARTICLE AT FAULTLINE OR MAGGIE'S NOTEBOOK!!
Take a look at the following chart:
In attempting to capture the significance of Barack Obama's Radical Left connections and his relation to the Cloward-Piven strategy, I constructed the following flow chart. It is by no means complete. There are simply too many radical individuals and organizations to include them all here. But these are perhaps the most significant.
The chart puts Barack Obama at the epicenter of an incestuous stew of American radical leftism. Not only are his connections significant, they practically define who he is. Taken together, they constitute a who's who of the American radical left, and guiding all is the Cloward-Piven strategy.
Conspicuous in their absence are any connections at all with any other group, moderate, or even mildly leftist. They are all radicals, firmly bedded in the anti-American, communist, socialist, radical leftist mesh.
The people who have fallen under Obama's radical spell need to WAKE UP AND SMELL THE CORRUPTION!

How exciting it is to see biblical prophecy coming to fruition right before our very eyes! This is another example, and brief study, of how ancient prophets in the Bible (in this case, Daniel) prophesied about what the world would be like the closer we get to the Rapture, the rise of the Antichrist, and then Jesus' second coming.

Reading New Republic Teas Leaves Determine Debate Winner
The last paragraph made me laugh out loud! I could not believe that any serious journalist would ever write such a stupid title!! Someone needs to point that writer in the direction of the Fox News Channel's text message poll. As of last night, the "who won the debate" question results were:
McCain - 82%
Obama - 16%
Undecided - 1%
Last I heard, over 56 thousand people participated in that text message poll!
Over at CNN, they utilized their typical spin mantra to make one believe that Obama had a slight lead over McCain in the "who won" telephone poll they had conducted. Even one of the persons in their "after the debate" panel admitted that they had polled mostly Democrats and would have to see the national results that will be broadcast the next day. Ha!
The MSM spin is so laughable when it comes to their Obamabot mindset. It is like their brains have all been deprogrammed, then attached and assimilated by pseudo-humanoid drones like the Borg!

[Note: A bit unrelated (at least, directly) to the debate, but when I saw Obama fling the rose onto the 9/11 memorial site, I cringed. Ran across this post and video of it. A Tale of Two Roses]
It’s a small gesture, but gestures matter at the hallowed grave site of so many murdered innocent Americans.
Barack Obama flings a memorial rose at Ground Zero like he’s a kid tossing pennies into a fountain at the shopping mall — or a spectator tossing flowers at a bullfight.
He doesn’t know what he’s doing.
(Clueless NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg copies him.)
By contrast, John McCain and his wife kneel and gently, somberly, place their roses down at the foot of the 9/11 tribute.
Tons of you e-mailed me about this. Here’s the vid for the rest of you who didn’t see it. It’s a telling cultural and generational distinction between these two men vying to be commander-in-chief of our nation.

Well people - that is a boldfaced lie and total bull****.
But Reid gets away with it anyway! How despicable.
And...he also tried to give Obama credit for what was previously agreed upon! How ludicrous is that??
At least Fox News reported the truth that the disagreements between the committee and the House Republicans were there even before the meeting with President Bush occurred.
Harry - you are such a liar! I won't hold my breath for a retraction.
Want to know the truth about why an agreement isn't forthcoming as quickly as it could?
Then go to Right Voices and read - Why is ACORN in The Bailout?
Who wants ACORN in there? The nutty socialists! (Ha! Couldn't resist the pun). It is mostly the Dems that are OK with this. However, according to the Dem news conference starring Hapless Harry and Chris Dodge-the-Corruption, there are also some clueless RINOS in the Senate willing to go along with them! Wonder who they are? I'm sure conservatives can take a guess.
Ha! Just noticed what is written below the Right Voices logo at their website:

But now, it is certainly good to know that I am not the only blogger out there spilling my guts about the George Soros/Obama connection!
Soros, Barack Hussein Obama, the Financial Meltdown: Destroying America
There are many other additional links that support my original suspicions connecting these two with our current economic mess!
Please read the article links at the "Road Sassy" site. It is just TOO COINCIDENTAL that this has happened just eight weeks before the election!
People - we need to pray for John McCain to come to the rescue on this. I have heard that Newt Gingrich has come up with a plan that is much better than the current $700 billion bailout. At least John McCain courageously outlined five points (during his speech at the Clinton Global Initiative) that need to be addressed before this amount of taxpayer money is handed over.
Here's just a few of the things that I found most disturbing at the "Road Sassy" site:
Obama Knee-Deep in Financial Crisis
It’s important to go to http://opensecrets.org in order to do some serious research on Obama’s fundraising, including this year and his 2004 Senate race. Obama, after Chris Dodd, was the biggest recipient of donations from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and his economic adviser, Franklin Raines, was a major architect of the financial disaster. So, too, was Jim Johnson, who (briefly) headed Obama’s V-P search team. McCain is exploiting this.
But a key point to bring out how many millions (tens of millions?) Obama has received from financial firms, not only Fannie and Freddie, but also Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and many, many other firms whose hands are dirty in the recent financial events. Goldman Sachs has treated Obama like the world’s most expensive mistress.
Bloggers and other onliners: We need to concentrate on issues that will ring a bell with the American people and avoid ones that mainly academic exercises. The fact that Obama has received millions from people who caused the economic crisis will resonate.
What is especially enraging for me is that Soros and his boy Obama may damn well succeed in pulling this country down. I have been writing about Soros for a long time and I am relieved to see others recognizing his nefarious machinations in this election.
Soros Bets on U.S. Economic Collapse
We may not know much about Paulson, but we know a lot about Soros.
Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama favor government support for people losing their homes because they can’t repay their sub prime mortgages. But what about the financial wheeler-dealers in the hedge fund industry who may stand to make billions of dollars from this terrible debacle? Foremost among them is billionaire hedge fund operator George Soros, who has committed his life and immense financial resources to bringing the Democrats to power in the White House.
Ties to the controversial and mysterious hedge fund industry could become a major problem for the Democratic Party. Hedge fund money “appears to be tilting toward the Democrats of late,” the New York Times reported last year.
OBAMA IS OWNED BY GEORGE SOROS
Barack Obama is a wholly-owned subsidiary of madman financier George Soros, the shadowy multi-billionaire who is credited with destroying the entire economy of Britain a few years ago while making a fortune betting against the British currency. For his trouble, he was convicted of insider trading, stock manipulation, and trading fraud. Sound familiar?
Now Soros, along with a conspiracy of Asian and European currency traders, is betting against the dollar. He hopes to bring down the economy of the United States and control the White House, all within the next eight weeks. Already there is talk in international financial circles of lowering the credit rating of the United States from AAA, for the first time in history. That would skyrocket our cost of borrowing. Soros is quoted as having said, “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States. . . . We must puncture the bubble of American supremacy.”
But first he must get Obama elected at all costs. And to that end he has managed to enlist many of the nation’s union bosses to commit more than $1 billion to the election. Soros plans a one-two punch against our economy, the first in New York in October (did we already see it?) the other in Hollywood just before the election in November.
HT: Road Sassy
Update: Also see Who [else] Is Responsible For This Financial Mess over at Big Dog's Weblog.
Second Update: Now we know why the Jr. Senator from Illinois - who has spend most of his time in office campaigning for the presidency - dragged his feet about coming back to Washington to help with the current financial meltdown. He probably already knows about how the Dems created this mess:
How the Democrats Created the Financial Crisis: Kevin Hassett
Was his reluctance to come back to Washington due to guilt? Or was it due to his desire for complete evasion? I'd bet it was the latter reason...
Now that the collapse has occurred, the roadblock built by Senate Democrats in 2005 is unforgivable. Many who opposed the bill doubtlessly did so for honorable reasons. Fannie and Freddie provided mounds of materials defending their practices. Perhaps some found their propaganda convincing.
But we now know that many of the senators who protected Fannie and Freddie, including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Christopher Dodd, have received mind-boggling levels of financial support from them over the years.
Throughout his political career, Obama has gotten more than $125,000 in campaign contributions from employees and political action committees of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, second only to Dodd, the Senate Banking Committee chairman, who received more than $165,000.
Clinton, the 12th-ranked recipient of Fannie and Freddie PAC and employee contributions, has received more than $75,000 from the two enterprises and their employees. The private profit found its way back to the senators who killed the fix.
There has been a lot of talk about who is to blame for this crisis. A look back at the story of 2005 makes the answer pretty clear.
Oh, and there is one little footnote to the story that's worth keeping in mind while Democrats point fingers between now and Nov. 4: Senator John McCain was one of the three cosponsors of S.190, the bill that would have averted this mess.

Here is the comment:
I'm not a Christian, and thus do not take my position on abortion from the Bible.
With that caveat out of the way, I wanted to simply point out that the Biblical verses you reference don't mention point of conception, merely a vague reference to the 'womb'.
Consequently, those verses could easily be used to support permission for abortion only in the early weeks (before the foetus can kick, twins can struggle in the womb etc.)
September 23, 2008 5:41:00 AM PDT
The fact is that Scripture interprets Scripture. Using just one verse (or, even scattered verses) to make one's point may not be "in line" with what the whole of Scripture tells us. False teachers make that mistake all the time.
However, when it comes to the "life begins at conception" argument, an examination of such a concept through the utilization of several Scriptures DOES make the point for such a belief!
Since God knows the past, present and future, He knew each of us well before we were even born.
The prophecies in the Old Testament which pointed to the Messiah, his birth, his ministry, his rejection, his crucifixion, his death on the cross and resurrection from the dead were all fulfilled in Jesus Christ.
I'm sure that many readers here can add to the following response. Please feel free to do so!
Here is my answer to UY:
There are many Bible verses that reference the fact that God "knew" us before we were born while in the womb.
Job 31:15 Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb?
Psa 71:6 By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise [shall be] continually of thee.
Psa 127:3 Lo, children [are] an heritage of the LORD: [and] the fruit of the womb [is his] reward.
Psa 139:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
Ecc 11:5 As thou knowest not what [is] the way of the spirit, [nor] how the bones [do grow] in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
Isa 44:2 Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, [which] will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.
He knows our name before we are even born:
Isa 49:1 Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.
Jer 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, [and] I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Conception is mentioned here:
Hsa 9:11 [As for] Ephraim, their glory shall fly away like a bird, from the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception.
God even sent angelic messengers to tell of certain births and give the name of the child beforehand:
Luk 1:13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
Luk 1:14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
Luk 1:15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.
Luke 1:15 is describing John the Baptist. Note that he was filled with the Holy Ghost (Spirit) even from his mother's womb. This gives us a hint as to why the unborn infant John "leaped in Elisabeth's womb" when Mary, who was with child (Jesus) came near!
Luk 1:31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
Luk 1:41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
Luk 1:42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed [art] thou among women, and blessed [is] the fruit of thy womb.
Luk 1:44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
Jesus' name was given before he was conceived in the womb:
Luk 2:21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
We also read the fact that believers in Jesus Christ are "called according to his purpose."
Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.
Notice what Paul says about his former self (as a persecutor of Christians) before he was converted on the Road to Damascus by Jesus Christ, Himself.
Galatians Chapter 1
Note these specific verses, too:
Gal 1:15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called [me] by his grace,
Gal 1:16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
Gal 1:17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.
Gal 1:18 ¶ Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.
Gal 1:19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother.
Gal 1:20 Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not.
Gal 1:21 Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;
Gal 1:22 And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ:
Gal 1:23 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.

Please see an excellent post written by Bill Muehlenberg on the topic of abortion over at Culture Watch:
Morality, Reason and Abortion
The facts on abortion are so clear, and the case against it so strong, that the pro-death crowd has to resort to twisted thinking, convoluted reasoning, and dodgy morality to try to make its case. But baby killing is still baby killing, no matter how it is dressed up or re-packaged.

Admittedly, I do not know much about Treasury Secretary Paulson; except that he is a former CEO of Goldman. I need to do a search on him. However, just as McCain had mentioned several times since this investment meltdown came to fruition, it is best to "trust, but verify" any person who would be in a position like Paulson inevitably will - with access to so much tax-payer money in the face of this bailout measure.
After doing a quick search, I found this article quite interesting. In truth, I hate to link to it because the author obviously hates Bush, Republicans, and conservatives.
Although the author refers to people like me and Michele Malkin as "right-wing" it appears that he is glad that there is some conservative concern and chatter in opposition to Paulson getting access to so much money. Since one man would be making all of the decisions (at this point)as to what he will do with the money over the next two years, it makes perfect sense to be highly concerned.
All the more reason that John McCain's idea of a bipartisan oversight committee is crucial before the measure gets passed and signed by President Bush.
I still have a sneaking suspicion that George Soros has his grubby, evil and menacing hands somewhere in this mess. Can't prove anything, but my previous post about him (in case you missed it) reveals why I think he has something to do with our current financial crisis.
Not many people wrote comments to that post. Maybe I'm the only one who sees connecting dots between this crisis, the "Obama Unmasked" book, and O'Reilly's warnings about Soros in "Culture Warrior?"
Decided to do a search on "Paulson and Soros connection."
Found a few articles that may give us some insight:
Soros Bets On U.S. Economic Collapse - This was written back in January, 2008! However, the "Paulson" mentioned in the article is "John Paulson."
Then, I found this article:
Paulson Hedge Fund Up 410% Subprime bet pays off for $20 billion hedge fund firm. That is an article from September, 2007. Notice this in the comment section:
Austintatious 380 days ago
Unless Paulson & Co has some connection with Hank Paulson (former Goldman CEO, current Sec of Treasury)...
Wow! Could there be a connection? Does anyone know if these two "Paulson" men are related?
Obviously, this writer doesn't like Paulson's fantasy - which kicks Main Street in the teeth!
Next, I found a link at Boom2Bust.com in which we find two May, 2008 articles where Soros "warns of financial crisis, wealth destruction" and "predicts more economic pain." How nice. Soros laughs at the end of the comment at "Boom" blog!
There are many, many more links I could post. But alas, my blogging time for now has expired.
I will end with a link to a post called, George Soros: The Enemy Within

Originally, I had planned to publish the following post on Monday morning. However, as I prepared it and read every link, viewed each video, and thought about Jesus' words in Matthew 18:6, Luke 17:2 and Mark 9:42, I could not hold my peace on this issue one more day!!
I know this topic isn't pleasant. It's truly awful - in fact. But it is the reality of our times today. As we get closer to THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION IN THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION - SO MUCH IS AT STAKE!!
Knowing what the candidates believe about LIFE and even more specifically, the lives of unborn and just born children SHOULD BE IMPERATIVE IN YOUR DECISION MAKING FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
THIS HOLDS TRUE - ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN!!
Please forward this post to EVERYONE in your email address book. They may not see this current "ad war" via T.V. on this crucial topic, but THEY NEED TO SEE THE REALITY OF THE HORRIBLY EVIL MINDSET OF BARRACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!
In Christ's Service,
Years ago, I wrote an op-ed piece and submitted it to our local newspaper about the fact that abortion is the murder of unborn children. It was rejected twice. The third time I submitted it, there must have been a different publisher in charge that day because it was finally published. Here is a copy of the article:
ABORTIONS HAVE SIMPLY GOT TO STOP
Abortion survivor Gianna Jessen, now 25 years old [Note: she is now 31 years old], was aborted but did not die. Her mother was 7 months pregnant when Planned Parenthood in Southern California advised her to have a late-term abortion by having a solution of saline injected into the mother's womb. It burns the baby inside and out and the mother delivers a dead baby within 24 hours.
Gianna remained in such a solution for 18 hours and was delivered alive on April 6, 1977, at an abortion clinic. There were young women in the room who had already been given their injections and were waiting to deliver dead babies. When they saw Gianna, they experienced the horror of murder. Due to lack of oxygen supply during the abortion, Gianna lives with cerebral palsy.
Gianna appeared before Congress in support of the Born Alive Infants Protection Act of 2000 and said, "When the freedoms of one group of helpless citizens are infringed upon, such as the unborn, the newborn, and disabled and so-called 'imperfect,' what we do not realize is that our freedoms as a nation and individuals are in great peril. A murderous spirit will stop at nothing until it has devoured a nation."
The Protection Act was passed overwhelmingly, with 370 votes, but 15 congress people voted against it. These 15 people apparently believe that children born as a result of botched abortions should be allowed to suffer pain for three to seven hours and left to die a miserable death for lack of medical care because they were earmarked for termination.
Are some American people so cold-hearted they do not find this abhorrent?
Fox News analyst Bill O'Reilly exposed the identity of the 15 people on his show and was appalled that anyone could vote against such a bill. O'Reilly's guest was Jill Stanek, a nurse who testified before the Senate and said, "Abortion is a cancer that is literally killing America. It is killing our children while it is killing our consciences. It began when we took God out of our decision-making and proclaimed that the little beings growing inside of women were 'products of conception' and not children. Who should be surprised that we keep pushing the envelope so that now we are aborting these products of conception alive?"
Does a woman who seeks an abortion have the right to a dead baby, no matter what? The National Abortion Rights League thinks so. This demonstrates the abortion-rights lobby's infanticide agenda. They called the Infants Protection Act bill an "anti-choice assault." Given their mission, we can see why. If a baby born alive moments after an attempted abortion has a right to life, why did it lack such a right moments before? And a week before that? A month?
More than 27 years ago the pro-life movement predicted that the tragic Roe vs. Wade decision would promote a horrific culture of death and lead to groups that approve of baby killing. We have a Supreme Court majority that voted to allow abortionists to deliver an unborn child's body until only the head remains inside of the mother, puncture the back of the child's skull with scissors, and suck the child's brains out before completing the delivery of a dead baby. Professors like Princeton's Peter Singer and groups like NARAL deny that we are created equal and affirm a frightening concept which makes me shudder: that of a class of human being, including newborn infants, who are in effect non-persons and should be left to die after a botched abortion.
George F. Will said it well when he stated in Newsweek, "The tenet is that it is arbitrary, and morally and philosophically problematic, to say that a baby has no intrinsic dignity, and that its claim to respect for its life is contingent on its physical location or on whether it suits the convenience of anyone else. That tenet should, but does not, trouble (pro-abortion advocates or) the Supreme Court majority."

WARNING! THE FOLLOWING IS VERY GRAPHIC! HOWEVER, IT EXPOSES THE AWFUL TRUTH ABOUT THE EVIL OF ABORTION!
Salt Poisoned Baby Photo
Video of salt-poisoning procedure (down loadable)
When I wrote that piece, I just never could have EVER imagined that this dear young woman, Gianna Jessen, who survived this awful abortion procedure would BE DESPICABLY ATTACKED by ANYONE - NO LESS A U.S. SENATOR RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT!!!
[Note: See both videos at WND site:
Obama Goes To War With Abortion Survivor]
Also, notice that the ad isn't endorsed by Senator McCain. The party responsible for the content of the ad is Born Alive Truth.org. Yet, Obama's ad slams both Senator McCain and Gianna Jessen!
How ANYONE could be so ruthless and cold - as Barack Hussein Obama has been - towards a woman who survived a botched abortion and requests support for medical treatment for infants born alive is clearly beyond comprehension!!
Obama Goes To War With Abortion Survivor
Barack Obama's Record Against the IL Born Alive Infants Protection Act
What type of abortion did Gianna endure and, through the grace of God, survive?
Salt Poisoning a.k.a. "Candy Apple Babies:"Most often used after the first trimester (first three months). The abortionist injects a strong salt solution directly into the amniotic sac (fluid surrounding the baby). The baby breathes and swallows it, is poisoned, struggles, and sometimes convulses. It takes over an hour to kill the baby. The mother delivers the dead baby in a day or two (sometimes alive!). Why "candy apple" babies? The corrosive effect of the salt solution often burns and strips away the outer layer of the baby's skin. This exposes the raw, red, glazed-looking subcutaneous layer of tissue. The baby's head sometimes looks like a candy apple. Some have also likened this method to the effect of napalm on innocent war victims. This technique was originally developed in the concentration camps in Nazi Germany. (source: Abortion and Social Justice, NY: Sheed & Ward, 1972)

Thank you Lord Jesus for setting me free!
Set Me Free music video.
"Set Me Free"
It hasn't always been this way
I remember brighter days
Before the dark ones came
Stole my mind
Wrapped my soul in chains
Now I live among the dead
Fighting voices in my head
Hoping someone hears me crying in the night
And carries me away
Set me free of the chains holding me
Is anybody out there hearing me?
Set me free
Morning breaks another day
Finds me crying in the rain
All alone with my demons I am
Who is this man that comes my way?
The dark ones shriek
They scream His name
Is this the One they say will set the captives free?
Jesus, rescue me
As the God man passes by
He looks straight through my eyes
And darkness cannot hide
Do you want to be free?
Lift your chains
I hold the key
All power on Heav'n and Earth belong to me
You are free
You are free
You are free

Remember the post I wrote called Obama's Radical List Grows?
Within that post, I mentioned a book called "Obama Unmasked." In an email that I had received about the book, it was revealed that billionaire George Soros is politically backing and financially supporting Obama's campaign.
Note what I previously wrote and quoted about Soros:
Several days ago, I got an email with information that shares how George Soros is financing Obama's candidacy and using Obama as his puppet to get access to the White House.
If you are unfamiliar with this man, please do a search. You will find out how he has spend MILLIONS trying to get Gore, Kerry, and now Obama elected.
The email I received described another book coming out called, "Obama Unmasked".
New Book Exposes Obama's October & November Surprises
Help Unmask Obama!
Excerpt from second "Unmask" page that contains my concerns about Soros:
Back when he was an Illinois Senator, why did Obama vote "Present" a record-setting 130 times?
Is that leadership?
Is that "change"?
When Obama did vote on important issues, why did he vote the "Democratic Socialists of America" party line every time? (You could call that "change" but not the kind we need!)
A dirty Chicago machine made Obama, and will be expecting blood loyalty...How easily can Obama be bought?
Unsealing the federal indictment against his close pal and fundraiser (and convicted felon) Tony "the Fixer" Rezko should reveal plenty.
Earlier we spoke of two revelations in Obama Unmasked that may well blow the lid off this election.
Okay, first, a source close to the mad billionaire George Soros has revealed that Soros is planning...An "October Surprise" to make Soros a fortune and Obama a President.
Soros' lefty candidates have lost the last two elections, and he's p*ssing mad. He has $7 billion to spend to get it right this time! He is reportedly planning to sack the U.S. economy, make himself billions richer, and put Obama in the White House marching to his mad tune.
[Here's a thought. Did Soros have any connections with the Lehman Bros. bankruptcy? What about the collapse (and subsequent government rescue) of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? Is anyone else out there suspicious about this?
Update 8/12/08: Could Soros (or possibly Latkoff and Geffen - also mentioned in the book) have had a hand in the AIG crisis? Could they be toying with the troubles at Washington Mutual through financial manipulation too?]
You can go to the link above to read about the suspicion regarding Geffen. O'Reilly describes George Lakoff as "godlike to the S-P (secular-progressive) faithful. [H]e's a stealth warrior, a battlefield theorist of the first order."
Obviously Soros couldn't pull off such a devilish task on his own.
Recall that I had posted a summary about Soros in Bill O'Reilly's book, "Culture Warrior":
To sum up, Soros is a smart, ruthless ideologue who will stop at nothing to advance the secular-progressive offensive. He has no scruples, ethics, or sense of fair play. The guy reminds me of Colonel Banastre "Butcher" Tarleton, the most justly hated Redcoat during the Revolutionary War. Soros and Tarleton can both be associated with take-no-prisoner policies: In both cases, their prey, whether traditionalists today or colonial rebel fighters in the eighteenth century, were simply people trying to strengthen their country.
I mean it. for traditional-minded Americans, George Soros is public enemy number one. Without his unlimited cash (along with that of Peter Lewis), the S-P movement could not attack so readily and so effectively - and with such venom. Soros envisions a libertine society that soaks the rich (except for him) and forms no judgments on personal behavior. His one-world philosophy would obliterate the uniqueness of America and downsize its superpower status. His secular approach would drastically diminish Judeo-Christian philosophy in America and encourage his own spiritual philosophy: atheism. George Soros is truly an imposing force, and his elite media allies are making him even more so. We ignore him at our peril.
Doesn't the last five sentences remind you of many of the Obama campaign not-so-subtle talking points?
Excerpt source: Culture Warrior by Bill O'Reilly pp. 40-41.
Last night on The O'Reilly Factor, several rich, far leftist loons that are backing Obama were revealed. Among them? George Soros!!
The smug and quite snooty "socialite" (and, Marxist Socialist) lady (need to find her name) who was interviewed by O'Reilly on the show had revealed the cast of characters behind Obama. O'Reilly threw in a little jab (which the woman apparently took as a compliment!) that she was responsible for introducing Obama to Soros.
Let me share a few more excerpts from "Culture Warrior":
Far more malevolent and powerful than George Lakoff will ever be is the moneyman of the secular-progressive movement, George Soros. Without this dangerous guy, Lakoff and his crew might as well spit into the wind. Soros is El Jefe of the S-P forces, a man whose vast fortune is directed toward undermining traditional America and replacing it with a so-called Open Society. George Soros is the puppet master, the man with the plan, a ferociously far-left force about whom most Americans know little or nothing.
O'Reilly writes that Soros was born to a Jewish family in 1930 in Hungary and fled when the Russians occupied it after WWII.
Soros wound up in London, studied at the London School of Economics, then migrated to America in 1956, where he began an investment fund that eventually made him on of the richest men in the world. Forbes magazine estimates his personal wealth at more than $7 billion. Along the moneymaking trail, Soros was convicted of insider trading in France in 1988, earning a $2 million fine. He has gained a reputation as a ruthless currency trader who often dances on the edge of illegality. In 1992, he made $1 billion in a single day by betting that England would devalue the national currency.
Now an American citizen, Soros keeps much of his vast fortune in banks on the Dutch island of Curacao, where his Quantum Fund is registered. That means Soros can dodge many U.S. corporate taxes even though he hinself is based in New York City. By the way, George Soros is on record as wanting affuent Americans to pay higher taxes, even as he operates a lucrative real estate company from Bermuda - another place where he can avoid U.S. taxes.
What kind of man is Soros? Well, he does not believe in God, his social phhilosophy is libertarian, and his political outlook is far, far left. According to investigative reporter Peter Schweizer, a fellow at the Hoover Institution, Soros has donated "hundreds of million of dollars" to American left-wing causes. At this point, he is the prime financier of a number of operations on the Internet that consistently smear conservative and traditional Americans.
Ah ha!! Now we know how the left-wing loons and smear merchant bloggers get to live in their parents basements, not work, and spew hate-filled rhetoric all day long on their blogs!! Shall I name the blogs? Probably don't need to...they are well-known already.
As if all of this isn't bad enough, there is more.
O'Reilly goes on and describes how Soros is an ideologue who "screams for the legalization of drugs, euthanasia, and "progressive" taxation.
Such a lovely worldview - isn't it? /sarcasm now off
After 9/11, Soros became much more radicalized. He spent $24 million trying to defeat Bush in 2004.
But most disturbing are his (Soros) statements about the terror war and his support for a convicted terrorist enabler, New York attorney Lynne Stewart, who is currently in prison.
Where, btw, Obama's unrepentant terrorist buddy - William Ayers - should also be!!
More on her in a bit. Soros wrote the following words in the Atlantic Monthly: "Hijacking fully fueled airliners and using them a suicide bombs was an audacious idea, and its execution could not have been more spectacular."
How cold, heartless, and utterly evil is that statement?
[T]he billionaire followed up that observation by taking out an ad in the Wall Street Journal that stated: "The war on terror as we have waged it since 9/11 has done more harm than good."
To whom? Whom exactly is Soros pulling for? It isn't the United States, as he has compared the Bush administration to the Third Reich, according to an article written by Laura Blumenfeld in the Washington Post.
I ask you. Does all of this sound very familiar? Aren't these the talking points of the Obama campaign and all the far leftists in our country?
Soros expanded on his post-9/11 angst in an interview with Fortune magazine: "The crisis now is the crisis of global capitalism and a political and military crisis. It has been brought about by the exploitation of September 11th by the Bush administration to pursue its policy of dominate the world in the guise of fighting terrorism."
In no-spin words, Soros believes that the United States does not have the right to act unilaterally to fight terrorism, although, to be fair, he did not object to the removal of the Taliban in Afghanistan. A significant hallmark of the S-P movement, by the way, is that, with rare exceptions, a world consensus is needed in order to use military force. [T]his, of course, is off-the-charts dangerous, because much of the world despises America and is decidedly not looking out for us.
Now, it may appear that I am drifting away from the topic of this post. Please bear with me. This next section from O'Reilly's book will tell you why I included it.
And if all this weren't disturbing enough, George Soros then took it a step further by actually helping and aforementioned terrorist enabler. On February 10, 2005, radical New York City lawyer Lynne Stewart was convicted of conspiracy, providing material support to terrorists, defrauding the United States, and making false statements.Is this information nightmarish or what??
A jury found that Ms. Stewart had smuggled message from her jailed client - Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman - to his Islamic terrorist supporters in Egypt. As you may remember, Rahman is the blind Muslim cleric who was convicted of plotting to blow up the United Nations and planning the first bombing of the World Trade Center, among other things. He had also urged his followers to kill all Jews. Rahman is serving a life sentence in a federal prison in Colorado.
Anyway, the sixty-six-year-old Stewart, who had openly advocated violence in the past, is now a convicted felon essentially for helping her pal Rahman. And guess who paid some of her legal bill: George Soros's Open Society Institute. Nice. One footnote: Both Soros and Stewart come from Jewish backgrounds, which is peculiar in light of their support for radical Islamists who want to re-create the Holocaust.
O'Reilly goes on to describe how their primary attack website - MoveOn.org - routinely slanders and smears all opposition to their ideology. What's worse is the fact that such lunatics have access to the MSM; unlike conservative right bloggers.
O'Reilly concludes, "[h]e (Soros) has developed a defamation pipeline that can instantly injure anyone in the United States."
We currently see the defamation merchants at work against Sarah Palin! I was so encouraged and proud of her when she told Hannity, "I have thick skin." Good for her! She isn't going to let the lunatics get to her!! As a fellow Christian, I know that her "thick skin" is also being protected by the "shield of faith!" We need to keep her in our prayers.
Good thing I'm such a small-time conservative Christian blogger - or, the smear merchants might come after me because of this post!
O'Reilly got it right in his summary of this dangerous, conniving and utterly evil man.
"We ignore him at our peril."
Excerpt source: Culture Warrior by Bill O'Reilly pp.36-39
Update: Watch this "talking points memo" and notice how Bill mentions the fact that this financial crisis may lead people to vote Democratic!
While listening to Sean Hannity on the radio just now, he stated that the Obama campaign appears to be "giddy" and "happy" about this crisis!!
Do you smell a rat? Perhaps several here???

Does compromise plus enabling equal heresy?
I truly believe that all three are actively at work in today's postmodern Christian church culture. In years past, those churches that obviously compromised the truth of the Bible and true Gospel (regarding sin, pride of self, ignoring and/or allowing unrepentant rebellion against God and His Word, and the re-making of Jesus Christ in their own image) were typically labeled as the "liberal" wing of Christianity.
However, compromise, enabling and heresy (CEH, for short) is creeping into Evangelical church circles at an increasingly alarming rate. Those of us (called the elect in God's Word) who see this are attempting to sound the alarm bells to warn those who may be caught up in such movements to return back to the Bible and what Jesus said was needed to inherit the kingdom of God - namely - our need to repent of sin, follow the Law (Jesus said, "if you love me, keep my commandments) and the Prophets, and the true gospel which points us towards righteousness and holiness.
Mat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Mar 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if [it were] possible, even the elect.
The "elect" are the truly saved in Jesus Christ. Notice that Jesus himself acknowledges that the "false Christs and false prophets" [s]hall deceive the very elect. But notice what Jesus said just before those words - "if [it were] possible!! This means that it isn't going to happen! There will always be a remnant of the faithful who will not be deceived by powerful "signs and wonders" that will deceive those not genuinely born again in Christ.
Human nature (especially the nature of the unsaved) is likely to deem such terminology as elitist, bragging, or much worse. What they are missing is the fact that it is the humbling of the heart, confession of sin, repentance of all our sin, asking for mercy and grace at the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ that enables us to be His (Jesus Christ's). There is no pride allowed in such an act. We know from whence we came (sinners, desperately in need of the Savior) and that if it weren't for Christ's sacrificial, substitutionary death on the cross, WE WOULD ALSO BE LOST FOR ALL ETERNITY. We can't boast in anything - but the cross of Christ.
Gal 6:14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
Look at Paul's instruction for the elect:
Col 3:12 ¶ Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
Col 3:13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also [do] ye.
Col 3:14 And above all these things [put on] charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
Col 3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
Col 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Col 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, [do] all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Also, look at Jude's admonition to seek out the lost and if necessary, pull them out of the fire:
Jud 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling [them] out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
How are we to balance all of this?
Some choose to use compromise so as not to offend anyone.
Others, choose to utilize a certain level of enabling - so as to appear loving, kind, tolerant, and non-judgmental.
Still others, go all the way towards heresy - willingly or unwittingly - and may THINK they are saved but because of following false doctrine, are not.
Here are some links that discuss various forms of CEH:

There are MANY more that I need to locate and post. Also, if you have links you would like to include (there are several on abortion I need to locate) please post them in the comment section.
Ultimately, the primary reason that the true Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Word, the Bible is rejected by those who are CINOS (Christian in name only) is discussed in this post:
Immorality - One of the Main Reasons People Reject God
After reading that post, go over and read Carlotta's blogpost entitled What Exactly is Gay Bashing? Read the comments, too. Quite eye-opening.
Carlotta points out the fact that hyper-tolerance towards homosexual activism has created an intolerant vacuum - designed to silence Bible believing Christians. She also demonstrates that there is much more at stake in the same-sex marriage issue due to such a fact:
Gay bashing is a very important term, because if gay marriages are approved permanently, then it may come to the courts to decide that “gay bashing” is illegal and therefore punishable. If it’s okay for gays to be married, then it certainly has to be okay period! Which is why it’s so important for many of us to take the stand for marriage between men and women. It seems to be coming to that point with people being fired from jobs, suspended from schools, and etc for people merely expressing disagreement with the gay sexual orientation.
This agrees with what I had read in the book "The Homosexual Agenda - Exposing the Principal Threat to Religious Freedom Today."
It's not only about "gay marriage," people. If these activists get their way - your Christian religious rights WILL BE TAKEN AWAY. Once legitimization of sodomites happens through the acceptance of such unions as "marriage," then the persecution of those who adhere to God's Word on the subject will reach an all time high. Mark my words!
There are Christians who (unfortunately) don't understand the dire consequences of this issue. Proposition 8 MUST PASS IN CALIFORNIA! VOTE YES ON PROPOSITION 8!!!
Excerpt from "The Homosexual Agenda":
The Price for Taking a Stand
The reality is that radical homosexual activists and their allies are looking for any opportunity to attack and silence any church that takes a biblical stand with regard to homosexual behavior, regardless of denomination.
[T]he heat is only going to get higher and and temptation to compromise the gospel in face of persecution is going to become more attractive. However, if the church fails to stand strong in the face of attack, then its very reason to exist (evangelization to spread the gospel) is compromised.
This book was published in 2003. We can already see how prophetic those paragraphs are because we are seeing such things happening right before our very eyes!
In the comment section at Carlotta's blog, here is a portion of one of her responses to a homosexual man named "Ted":
But fortunately I don’t have to depend upon my own thinking to decide whether or not homosexuality is wrong - a sin. You are relying upon YOUR own thinking to come to your conclusions. The only way your conclusions can make sense is if the bible is completely rejected, because otherwise, we have a very powerful, reliable source as a guidebook for the human being. The Lord knows we wouldn’t have thought of this ourselves!
As far as our civil rights are concerned, the bible talks about the moral code being written upon our hearts, given to us by God. That’s how we have the laws on murder, stealing, etc, and etc. God gave those to us! There are things that fit and things that don’t and it doesn’t take a genious to figure out that homosexuality is NOT natural! Every human being on earth has one mother and one father. That’s natural!
So you can cry the blues about us taking away your civil rights but it’s actually America leaning away from the moral code written and given to us by God Himself. We are heading for certain societal destruction if we ignore this code.
That I assure you!
“This is the covenant I will make with them
after that time, says the Lord.
I will put my laws in their hearts,
and I will write them on their minds. “Then he adds:
“Their sins and lawless acts
I will remember no more.”And where these have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin.
Carlotta shared a verse from Hebrews that shows THE ONLY WAY OUT from our sins and lawless acts; be they homosexual, heterosexual, or the breaking of any of the other laws God has given man in the Bible. God's laws are HIS LAWS! No man's opinion trumps the truth of this!!
Now, the title of this post includes the word "enabling." I want to share a story about this from chapter ten of "The Homosexual Agenda" book:
A new missionary was walking the streets of Colombia one day, a nation ravaged by organized crime and rampant drug use, accompanied by a Christian native of the country. As he walked the streets of the country, child after child would come up to the missionary and beg him for money. Even though he had limited funds, it was his inclination to give whatever he could to these poor and destitute children. However, his Christian companion quickly admonished him that giving into the demands of the children would cause the children more harm than good.
"You see," his companion said, "these children are trapped by the mafia at an early age to go begging in the streets. The crime syndicate breaks their fingers and other horrible things are done to them. But if you give in and just hand them the money, they will just take the money to the mafia and all it will do is perpetuate the problem. You may have thought that you helped the child, but all you did was treat a symptom, the cause of the problem will go on and on, and future generations of children will fall into the same trap."
*This story was told to Craig Osten by an employee of Food for the Hungry, and internationsl relief ministry.
This story also serves as an analogy when it comes to our response to those trapped in homosexual behavior.
Many Christian ministries that are devoted to helping men and women out of sinful sexual activity attempt to "speak the truth in love." This does not mean that they should be telling those who are actively violating God's standards for marriage and sexual activity that what they are doing is "OK" in God's eyes. Yet, this is what some Christians are doing when they compromise and enable fellow Christians who desire to continue with sinful behavior.
It is vital for members of the Body of Christ to understand the homosexual agenda and how it threatens many personal and religious freedoms. If we sit back and surrender, giving those involved in homosexual behavior everything they think they want, we are just like the missionary in Colombia who thought he was solving a problem but instead making it worse.
Jesus told us, "What does it profit a man to gain the whole world yet lose his own soul?"
What is that worth??
These dear people lost and trapped in sinful behavior and relationships will never be able to hear and respond to Christ's redemptive love for them!!
What's more, our ability to raise our own children and grandchildren to know and live the uncensored Christian life and faith is at risk as well. Parental rights are also an essential part of religious freedom: the ability to raise and guide one's own children and grandchildren according to one's God-given, Bible following, Christian beliefs.
We cannot allow [a false understanding] of love to trump truth." In our hope of being accepted, we have often backed away from the spiritual battle for the hearts and souls of men. Rather than confront the culture, we have often chosen to conform to it. Instead of promoting self-fulfillment in our churches, we must get back to modeling self-sacrifice. Christ made the ultimate sacrifice for us, and like him, we must be humble servants and not haughty judges. We need to point the individual traped in homosexual behavior to the true cross, not a revised, meaningless gospel that requires no sacrifice, no repentance, and provides no real lasting deliverance from sin and its pain and sorrow.
We must be willing to be salt and light in our culture, no matter what the price.
This is what is known as the agape love of Christ.
I realize that the homosexual men and women who come to this blog and post comments don't understand that true Christian love expressed for them is a love where we want to see them redeemed from a lifestyle of certain, ultimate despair.
There are SO MANY who have been released from the bondage of homosexual behavior and identity and redeemed through faith in Jesus Christ! Several of these dear people have posted comments here and have shared their testimonies!
Deliverance is real - when one is repentant and redeemed through the blood of Jesus Christ which was shed on that cross at Calvary over 2,000 years ago!
My prayer is that those involved in compromising churches (on this issue as well as many other non-biblical movements); enabling churches that refuse to call sin what it is - rebellion and separation from Holy God; and heretical churches that ultimately lead to apostasy and rejection of Christ, will be spiritually awakened by the Truth.
Each of us will spend eternity in one of two places. Choose God's Kingdom!
Mat 7:13 "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.
Mat 7:14 "Because[fn1] narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Mat 7:15 "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
Mat 7:16 "You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?
Mat 7:17 "Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
Mat 7:18 "A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
Mat 7:19 "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
Mat 7:20 "Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
Mat 7:21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
Mat 7:22 "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'
Mat 7:23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
Mat 7:24 "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:
Mat 7:25 "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
Mat 7:26 "But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:
Mat 7:27 "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall."
Mat 7:28 And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching,
Mat 7:29 for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Tuesday, September 16, 2008
After you read the post at the above link, you will notice several really good comments. For this post, I am re-posting just the ones between Ken Silva and I (so far):
I know for a FACT that Miles McPherson is attending to share the Biblical Truth to all who will be there. He did the same thing last year. He does not water down the true Gospel message for ANYONE.
Perhaps Ravi Z. is doing the same? Just a thought.
Perhaps it is necessary in this day and age of heresy and apostasy to infiltrate the heretics and apostates in order to steer them back in the right direction?
If they don’t, THAT’S when the Sola Scriptura Bible-based leaders may have to eventually “shake the dust off their sandals.”

“Perhaps it is necessary in this day and age of heresy and apostasy to infiltrate the heretics and apostates in order to steer them back in the right direction?”
Or maybe this day and age of heresy and apostasy is a judgment from God ala 1 Peter 4:17 because we’ve allowed the infiltration of these heretics and apostates who refused to be steered back in the right direction?
By: Ken Silva on September 15, 2008

Very true, Ken. However, I’d like to know your opinion of Pastor Miles’ attempts to share the truth at their heretical get-togethers?
Speaking of “refusal to be steered back”, the “gay christian” movement is a perfect example of those who refuse to be steered back in the right direction. Several other bloggers and I have posted biblical evidence of their heresy - but they don’t care - AT ALL. What matters most is their “feelings.”
When do we “shake the dust off our sandals” in such a case? I’m not sure - are you?
I, and many others, keep trying to reach them. Sometimes we just need to pray from them.

Please know I say this gently, k. I’ve not been impressed with what I’ve seen from McPherson as yet. The Adam and Eve “blinged out” opening of the new venue was not right.
That said, in a setting like ReThink he’d be dealing with a language barrier. By that I mean, as with Ray Comfort at the Word Faith conference, these people reinterpret Christian terminology.
For example to Rob ert Schuller “sin” is “negative self-esteem” so unless one very specifically defines their terms those to whom they “witness” to simply think they agree. The speakers there would all claim to be Christians anyway.

Oops…need to correct my last sentence. Meant to write:
“I, and many others, keep trying to reach them. Sometimes we just need to pray for them.”
I am disappointed to hear that you are not “impressed” with Miles McPherson, but that is certainly your right.
I am not sure where you got this from:The Adam and Eve “blinged out” opening of the new venue was not right.
Oftentimes, Pastor Miles says things with the kind of verbiage that young people can identify with. It is not meant to mock or replace the truth of God’s Word on the subject at hand.
I’m learning not to be too picayune about such things. As long as the RESULTS do not compromise the Gospel message or what is contained in God’s Word, then using terms that I’m not personally familiar with doesn’t bother me.
I will admit to you that I had the same reservations about Miles’ appearance(s) at both the “ReThink” conference and (especially!!) “The Secret” conference. However, when I listened to his presentation (and saw the results of people who attended that were searching for SOMETHING - but not knowing that they needed Jesus Christ) and then found out that out of all of the speakers, they saw the truth being shared by Miles - I had a different perspective on why he attended.

One more brief point. When Miles was backstage, the previous speaker at The Secret conference was Tony Robbins. He told Pastor Miles (paraphrased here), ‘None of us believe in this “Secret bull****.’ Glad you are here to share the truth.’
Admittedly, it takes a very strong Christian pastor, leader and apologist to go into “heresy territory” and share the Gospel Truth. I, and the thousands who attend The Rock Church see this unique ability in Pastor Miles.

What do you think of this exchange?
As a born-again, Bible-believing Christian, what are your thoughts about "infiltrating" heretical groups and conferences and sharing the Gospel Truth with the audiences there?
Do you think that this type of action just might be badly needed in this day and age?
Or, do you think that showing up for such conferences damages the credibility of any born-again, Bible believing and teaching pastor/speaker/evangelist?
