During the football season there were a number of commercials on TV about Jesus and how He gets us. Something just didn’t sit right with me in my spirit watching these ads.
I have gone to the website (which I’m not going to link) and watched the organization’s other videos. And with each one I get the same feelings over and over again.
The Jesus presented in these videos is a “good guy”. He has a lot of “good intentions”. And following the worldview of this Jesus as presented would make the world a better place.
But this is not the Jesus of the Bible. This is not the Saviour of all mankind. This Jesus is not the Christ. And following this Jesus will not save your soul from damnation. It will make you feel good in this life only.
Many who follow this false Jesus will be the ones who will hear the prophecy of Matthew 7: 21-23. Our Lord warned us that false Christs would come in Matthew 24:23-25.
I am sad to say that even some Believers are happy about these videos being aired during the football season. Stating that “Hey it gets the name of Jesus out there.” Yes it does. But if it’s not the Son of God Jesus. It doesn’t do you or anyone any good to follow this false Jesus.
Instead we should do as commanded in Scripture. Flee from this evil and wickedness.
This Leftist meme needed more attention. In my previous article I stated that the meme was attacking the Lefts big three enemies.
President Donald Trump American Conservative (Republicans) and America itself and Christianity/Christians.
This is psychological propaganda. Doctor Joseph Goebbels would be proud of this meme and what others have done with his body of work.
Dividing the meme in half there is a right side and a left side.
All of the negative aspects are on the right side. This creates a subconscious thought that right is bad. Thus the Left begins it’s clandestine attack on the American Conservative (Republican) which is generally viewed as being on the right side of the political spectrum.
The particular images of Jesus here are also well chosen for propaganda purposes. On the left side is a very African featured Jesus. Fully in line with the current affairs of the Leftist-Marxist Black Lives Matter movement.
While on the right side is a very Caucasian Jesus. And it has been altered from the original image with the addition of an American Flag and MAGA hat.
Since the Left hates America all this imagery appears on the negative right side of the meme.
The positive left side has some additional false hoods besides the image of Jesus. He was not African, so we would not look like that image. He was Jewish so his skin complexion would be olive and not brown.
Jesus was never a child refugee either. This lie is being put out by the Left for political gain and goes against the truth in Holy Scripture.
Jesus was neither poor or homeless. Jesus was a skilled carpenter. A trade learned from his given human adoptive father Joseph before he began His ministry. And he had a home in Nazareth.
No true believer, or American Conservative (Republican), or even any right leaning political organization believes any of the aspects listed on the negative right side of this meme.
Again, Jesus was of an olive complexion since He was a Jew born in Bethlehem in the Roman Province of Judea in the 1st Century.
Jesus could not be an American since the nation would not exist for another 1700 years at the time of His life on Earth. It is absurd to even have this as an aspect listed. But the purpose is to attack the American nation.
Jesus however did play a major role in the formation of the American nation. His teachings would lay the foundation for the Constitution and the American Dream. Freedom and Liberty for all people as our Founding Fathers designed this Great nation under Christian principles.
Within Holy Scripture from the time of creation to the great flood. All people descended from Adam and Eve. Thus there is only one race up through the time of the great flood.
And from the time of the great flood to the present day. We have all descended from Noah and his family that were spared. Again we are but one race. Man. Humankind. Created in God’s image.
When the Holy Bible divides people into ethnic differences it is only to divide them in half. One is either Jew or Gentile. Or sometimes written as Jew or Greek. The only other major division of the people is by Faith. One is either God-fearing or a pagan.
Ethnicity, race, and Nationality are all tied closely together. Sometimes they are even confused and mistaken for one another. Nationalities are mentioned in Scripture.
Was Jesus a Nationalist? Certainly not for the Roman Empire which He was a subject of like everyone else in Judea.
But read Matthew 15:21-28. In this passage of Holy Scripture Jesus tells a Canaanite woman that He has come only for the lost sheep of Israel. Jesus, in this passage, also compares the Canaanites to being dogs while the Israelites are children. In our modern world of today such statements would be very racist and nationalistic.
Many have pointed out that since Jesus never condemned homosexuality in the New Testament it means that Jesus approved of the practice. And Christians today are in error for condemning it.
Those doubters know that there are many verses in the Old Testament that condemn homosexuality as a grievous sin but they are wrong about the New Testament and what it says on the subject.
For Romans 1:24-27 speaks of the sin of homosexuality as does 1st Corinthians 6:9-10. And if these verses are not enough to convince the reader on what Jesus believed about the nature of homosexuality. Then remember this, Jesus was a Jew and was taught the Laws of Moses (the Old Testament) which declares that homosexuality is a sin.
But more importantly, Jesus is God. He and the Father are one. Moses received the Law from God. Thus he received it from Jesus. Jesus wrote the Laws of Moses which condemn homosexuality. There is no escaping this fact.
Yet the meme does call the aspect homophobia. And here it is correct. Jesus was not homophobic and neither are His followers today.
It is love of our neighbors that drive Christians to preach the truth of homosexuality and other sins. To free our neighbors from sin in the forgiveness and redemption of Jesus Christ. Loving your neighbor does not mean you condone their sins.
We touched before on the wealth of Jesus. He was not poor and nor was he rich. There are numerous verses in Holy Scripture where we see the Disciples go into town to purchase food or other goods. And it is written that those Disciples gave up everything to follow Jesus.
So where did they get the money to by the things that are mentioned in the Scriptures? Where do they get the money to pay for their travel across all of the Province of Judea?
Scripture doesn’t say. Jesus wasn’t rich. But as a skilled carpenter for many years before beginning His ministry he wasn’t poor by any means either. Of course some monies could have been given to the Disciples by the people as they traveled and preached as well.
Jesus hates sin. As a righteous God and creator of all the universe He has that right. We see His hatred and anger of sin when He verbally confronts the Pharisee hypocrites. We see His hatred and anger of sin when He enters the Temple at Jerusalem and turns over the tables causing destruction and physically assaults the money changers and merchants that have turned the Temple into a den of thieves.
And we see it again when Jesus curses the fig tree so that it withers and dies never to bear any fruit.
Lastly, of course Jesus was never a Christian. He was a 1st Century Jew but also the Son of God. He came to save the world from its sin. He was killed, buried, and rose again to complete this task.
His initial followers, mostly Jews, called their movement “The Way”. It would take several centuries after his ascension into Heaven before the term Christian started to be used. And at first it was an insulting term. Only adopted later to be a term that we are happy to use today.
The Left isn’t hiding any more. In one meme they attack the three things they hate the most.
President Donald Trump The United States of America And the Body of Christ and His church.
Like most of Leftist propaganda there is truth in this wicked deception. So instead of my usual method of taking the meme apart bit by bit. I have decided to simply just fix it. So here is a better meme.
Of course some of the items that are listed as what Jesus was not. No one believer would ever say that Jesus was these things. This is just more of the Leftist propaganda to desecrate Christians, Christianity, and to deceive their useful idiots to enrich and empower themselves.
This is the time of D-Day celebrations when the US lead the Allied invasion of Nazi occupied Europe. The Left is taking this opportunity to re-write history in their twisted image with several perverted memes.
I have seen at least half a dozen of these so far this past week on Social Media. All of them are presenting a false narrative. All of them pervert history. All of them dishonor those brave soldiers who gave everything on D-Day.
Here is just one of these perverted discussing memes:
This meme and others like it want to project the notion that those brave soldiers who fought oppression in the 2nd World War were Antifa.
Including a meme that presents President Eisenhower in his General’s uniform that states Republicans were once Antifa. But none of the soldiers, or their commanders, or any Republican has ever been Antifa because of what Antifa really is all about.
Lets see who the real Antifa was during this period of history and who they are now as well. This will clearly show why the memes are false.
The original Antifa, Antifaschistische Aktion, was a militant arm of the German Communist Party in the 1930’s. They clashed on the streets of Berlin and other German cities against other Marxist groups and against the National Socialists. This group went underground after the 1933 elections which swept the Nazi’s into power.
The modern Antifa, is a direct descendant of the original. Today it is still a Leftist militant movement. That uses violence and terrorism to make its point. It is pro-communist, pro-Marxist, and anti-capitalist.
The heroes of the 2nd World War were none of these things. They are anti-Marxist, anti-communist, and pro-capitalist. Which is part of the backbone of the United States of America. They would never resort to terrorism to achieve a political aim.
Every Republican is against fascism and any other Leftist form of government or society. But never Antifa as that glorifies Marxism and communism. And the Left always wants to re-write history to make themselves out to be the hero.
This has happened in every socialist, communist, fascist, monarchist, and Islamist state that has ever been created by the evils of man. And Antifa wants it to happen here.
