By the way, if God is so pleased with Ohio, why is it ranked 18th in highest poverty for 2017? Maybe they need to buy more Israeli bonds? The clergy letter had no such snowball effect beloved. At any point in time we can review all of the positive developments in a year and trace it back to something "good" the church may have done. A bible believing Christian does good works because of what God has already done for them on Calvary not because of some quid-pro-quo expectation of "blessing." This is straight up NAR and unbridled paganism. It is quite frankly the high sounding nonsense the bible warns us about. Mercifully, Akuchie concludes:
"For what it's worth, according to media reports, a loud unexplained boom was heard over Richland County the same day the local newspaper first published the story on the Israeli-clergy apology letter. Power Company officials and emergency responders were scratching their heads trying to determine the source of this strange phenomenon. In retrospect, some say it was the voice of the Lord thundering His approval when the news first broke. I call it God restoring thunder back to the pulpit." -- El Akuchie
Do you understand and see how pagan this is? Before the advent of rational thought man looked to the heavens and just made things up. A falling star may have meant the sun god was angry. Time to toss another sacrifice in the wood chipper. Red skies at night? Bad harvest coming. Unexplained boom? Well that must mean God is thundering His approval of a letter that was written. Come on. Unexplained booms and mysterious fireballs and nonsense like this are always interpreted positively! What if they really meant God was angry? Oh that's not possible because it doesn't fit this NAR, America-worshiping narrative. This is not a small matter beloved. Idol worship is addressed in two of the Ten Commandments. There are pastors I saw this week giving carnal sermons on matters of zero eternal significance. Imagine someone lost wandered into church this past week and instead of hearing the Gospel they heard someone opine about something as inconsequential as immigration or socialism. It is this jingoistic false religiosity that will march gleefully towards the one world church. Real Christians must take a stand. We serve Almighty God and He has given us citizenship in heaven. We do not have dual citizenship beloved. We are pilgrims traveling through this fallen world proclaiming the Good News that some might come out from among them before He returns. Let the apostate church continue to look for signs as the adulterous generation they are. None will be given. They can keep looking for sonic booms and strange fireballs falling from the sky to assure themselves they are not on the broad path that leadeth to destruction. We will keep looking to Jesus -- the same yesterday, today and forever. Amen.
