I noted here and here that there was a flap when it emerged that a Christian company that had contracted with the US Military to create gun sights for guns going to Iran, had bible verse addresses on them. They always had them there, but when the verses were “discovered” two weeks ago, an outcry was made. The company agreed to refrain from inscribing verse addresses on the gun sights in the future. A great hail and hoorah was made, once again the state was made separate from church.
Today it is reported that “The Air Force Academy has set aside an outdoor worship area for Pagans, Wiccans, Druids and other Earth-centered believers, school officials said Monday. A double circle of stones atop a hill on the campus near Colorado Springs has been designated for the group, which previously met indoors.” Additionally, it is reported that:
Cross found at Air Force Academy’s Wicca Center
The Air Force Academy, stung several years ago by accusations of Christian bias, has built a new outdoor worship area for pagans and other practitioners of Earth-based religions. But its opening, heralded as a sign of a more tolerant religious climate at the academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., was marred by the discovery two weeks ago of a large wooden cross placed there. … In a statement, Gould said, “We absolutely will not stand for this type of destructive behavior. I consider this no different than someone writing graffiti on the Cadet Chapel.” [emphasis mine]
I believe it is obvious that we are in the end time. I also believe that it is obvious that apostasy is on the rise. People are falling away from the faith in great numbers. Not just fence-sitters who are falling down on the faithless side of the fence, but Church itself is falling away too. Dominion Theology, Preterism, and other false doctrines are creeping into the foundational Christian belief systems, just as we were warned. (2 Tim 4:3 “For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.”)
Faithlessness is brought up in several other prophetical verses:
We know that the antichrist will not be revealed until the great falling away occurs. “The day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction” (2 Thess 2:3)
“I tell you, He will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8)
The issue is faith. The fact is there will be no faith, or lots of the wrong faith when Jesus returns. It’s ironic that a Government institution is making effort to build a pagan area for Wiccan worship, when Christians need to get permission from the ACLU to stand on the corner with a cross. For all those who scream that government and religion must be separate, who now support and encourage a Wiccan pagan worship area built by the government, the irony again is high. The brouhaha isn’t even settled with the Cross in the Mojave. In that flap, “High Court to Consider Issue of Church-State Separation” a cross’s placement in the Mojave desert on US Federal land was challenged. “Frank Buono, an assistant superintendent [of the US Park Service], informed his boss that the presence of the cross violated the Constitution’s establishment clause. Buono is Catholic, but he said he was offended by the religious display on federal land. “The cross is important to me because it is the indispensable symbol of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ,” Buono said in an interview. “But it isn’t right that the symbol of my religion, or any religion, be permanently affixed to federal land.”
But it’s OK for witches to prance around their religious altar on government land, I see.
Fortunately when Jesus returns and restores the earth, HIS earth, not ‘Mother Earth’, He will rule with an iron rod. He will not have to ask permission from anybody to go where He wants and to rule as He sees fit. For He is the LIVING Cross, the Word, and the Saviour of the world. He will be visible to all, and finally, finally, no other idolatrous item, no blasphemous altar, will mar the glorious light that is our Jesus. O, come soon!
