This is such NAR thinking and bible twisting. Jesus NEVER confronted politicians. The Sanhedrin were religious leaders, not political ones. The issue is they were supposed to be brothers and instead were false teachers. The commerce reference had nothing to do with carnal commerce and everything to do with defiling the temple of God by price gouging people who came to worship. The point regarding food had nothing to do with requirements and everything to do with being personally corrupted by what comes out of our mouths. There was no "healthcare on the Sabbath" issue and the portraying it as such is biblically criminal. It had to do with swallowing a camel. It had to do with obeying the law but missing the entire point -- as Akuchie continues to do here. The issue of paying the temple tax shows Christ's utter indifference regarding political matters! You want my tax? Go catch a fish! God did not have Moses confront Pharaoh worrying in the slightest how it would affect agriculture, public health, transportation or weather patterns. To suggest otherwise is simply asinine. Lastly, Akuchie mixes apples and orangutans in his Azariah reference. If he used these instances to say that people should challenge church leadership regarding immorality I would applaud. These verses however have nothing to do with challenging a sinful world on why they are so darn sinful. Akuchie continues the paganism cause effect brigade:
""farmers had the best winter wheat crop recorded in 47 years after 36 pastors in January 2016 sent a written warning to a local business against hosting a psychic reading. The clergy made it crystal clear that psychic reading can involve consumer fraud of unsuspecting persons and could hold the business liable to litigation. The warning was given the same time the area began experiencing a five-month long housing upswing where the average number of days a property is on the market dramatically dropped and average sales prices went thru the roof." -- El Akuchie
So God is now in the real estate market. Well, assuming you stop a psychic reading event. How absurd. What this means is the local churches threatened local business with civil penalties and carnal punishment if they dared to bring a psychic in. They caved to the pressure and then anything positive that occurred in the months following was attributed directly to this threat. This is the heart of pagan beliefs. To find causality in natural events. Big wheat crop? Must have been the great psychic threat. Did nothing positive happen prior to this threat? Of course it did but it was ignored because it did not fit this ridiculous narrative. Did anything negative happen after the threat? Of course it did but it was also summarily dismissed. Were all the people positively affected by real estate sales and wheat harvests believers? I seriously doubt it.
""seven pastors armed with drug treatment ministries confronted the County Fair Board, calling for the cancellation of a fair beer garden. The clergy caused a stir in the community, demonstrating that the beer garden did not meet its revenue goals and brought a bottleneck to security. The very same night the pastors presented their concerns to the board, a mysterious fireball was spotted and made landfall inside county limits. Five government agencies responded to the explosive scene, but the incident remains an enigma. For the pastors, these trailblazers that night became the stewards of the mysteries of God. No coincidence." -- El Akuchie
You have got to be kidding me. So now the opposition to a beer garden resulted in a fireball or some sort? What the heck does that even mean? Stewards of the mysteries of God? Not the God of the bible beloved. Only a pagan worshipper would make such silly and superstitious conclusions. These are not supernatural occurrences. They are stories of a local church using all the carnal schemes they can to apply their morality to their fallen communities. There are some good carnal results. A needle exchange program was quashed. Psychics were not allowed to practice their sorcery. These are temporal results beloved. No one was saved as a result. The kingdom did not grow by one soul. That is the true damage the NAR dominionist idol worship brings. It provides busyness with the world and an illusion of accomplishment while not advancing the kingdom a single step.
"No Such Word as 'Coincidence' in Hebrew. In January 2017, clergy from over 100 congregations in north central Ohio sent an apology letter to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the position the Obama administration took in not blocking United Nations Resolution 2334. Ten days after the apology letter was sent by the Ohio clergymen, a massive natural-gas pipeline was approved for construction thru north central Ohio after the project was held up by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission." -- El Akuchie
There actually is a Hebrew term for coincidence but these events are not even coincidences. That would be an insult to coincidences. These are completely non-correlated events being forcibly spliced together to give a false impression of causality. This is the whore god they have created and worship. That if you do something "Christian" he will make sure you get an oil pipeline.
"According to Department of Agriculture numbers, the spring turkey harvest in Richland County saw a dramatic increase from the prior year, whitetail deer harvested was the best in four years and the cow herd in Richland County, which is estimated in late winter, was measured at its largest size in over 30 years, which is utterly amazing. The astounding blessings the area experienced from the apology letter aftermath provoked 42 area clergymen to also request the county treasurer to invest taxpayer dollars in Israeli bonds. The day the county treasurer announced the county government would invest nearly $200,000 in Israeli bonds, was the same meeting that half a million dollars in unexpected revenue was announced to alleviate a budget shortfall. This clergy apology letter had a snowball effect and sends shivers down your spine to think that the blessing of Abraham still impacts our generation." -- El Akuchie
