“This begs the question as to whether the Democratic Party is a shill for al Qaeda. Probably not, but both al Qaeda and the Democrats have one thing in common—they want the Republicans out of office and they are trying to use a lazy, easily manipulated liberal news media to break down the will of the American people to fight for their very survival against an evil enemy. The Apostle Paul said of the latter days in II Timothy 3:13, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” And Jesus Christ warned in Matthew 24:4, “Take heed that no man deceive you.” Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to give us discernment and wisdom for times such as these.”
Um, right. Once again, the Religious Right (or the Sacreligious Wrong) is pushing the Neo-Con values and it’s hijacked Republican party. Or maybe the Neo-Cons are pushing their message out via their mouthpieces disguised as religion.
First of all, that’s *NOT* religious news. Hell, that’s not even news, it’s editorializing, and the only thing that’s religious about it are the quotes at the end.
Secondly, both are quotes are taken out of context. In the first quote Paul is talking about the future, and the whole sentance is :
“In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Jesus Christ will be persecuted, while evil men and imposters will go from bad to worse, decieving and being deceived.” (2 Tim. 3:12-13, NIV)
Paul is speaking to Timothy from his imprisonment, during the Roman ages, and he was right – a period of extreme persection followed. I’m not sure this applies, unless they’re inferring that we are entering the appocolypse, which the PRIOR section (2 tim 3:1-9) speaks of.
Now the second verse, Christ is also speaking of the End Times as well, and the quote is *ALSO* out of context :
“As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. ‘Tell us,’ they said, ‘when will [the end times] happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?’
Jesus answered: ‘Watch out that no one decieves you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will decieve many.” (Mat. 24:3-5, NIV)
Wow, that sure applies to the Democrats, now doesn’t it? Wait, it doesn’t?
I still don’t understand how people who spend so much time in study get it so consistantly wrong…
