"The language of love and the language of seduction are the same. The one who wishes a girl for a wife and the one who wishes her for only a night both use gentle soothing, loving words." - Richard Wurmbrand
The language of these traitors to Christianity today is oh so seductive. LIARS willing to back Romney or Obama, telling sweet tales about them, trying to pretend that one or the other is something other than what they are. Both are of the spirit of anti-Christ. Both are seductive LIARS. In the first chapter of Richard Wurmbrand's book, "Tortured for Christ" he describes the same process when Romania fell to the Russians, and most clergy and laymen capitulated to the LIE and officially painted even Stalin as a well known "bible teacher," labeling his actions "humane and parallel to Christian beliefs." We "pagans" have settled for merely the lesser of two Devils.
The apostasy of those days and making claims for Obama and Romney, saying their philosophies reflect "Christian Principles" is no less LIE. Let us be clear, there is no qualitative difference.
Wurmbrand wrote of the capitulating apostates of his day:
"They convened a congress of all Christian bodies in our Parliament building . . four thousand priests, pastors, and minister of all denomination, and these men of God chose Joseph Stalin as honorary president of this congress . . they declared that communism and Christianity are fundamentally the same . . . Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant church leaders competed with each other in yielding to communism. An Orthodox bishop put the hammer and sickle on his robes and asked his priest to no longer call him 'Your Grace,' but 'Comrade Bishop."'
I knew that this insanity would come to America, but I never expected to live long enough to actually see it. Yet, here is that day; I have been cursed by lay and clergy Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Protestant Christians, and several Jews for stating clearly that Obama is a Muslim by action and policy and Romney a cultist, and that his cult is reflected in his governing record. I am the evil one, you see, because I will not name either one, "Christian" nor whitewash their records giving them a Christian patina.
An Orthodox Priest sent me this message:
"OPEN YOUR MIND - THINK, PRAY, LISTEN, READ, WATCH and know that Romney and Ryan will faithfully work to restore responsible Constitutional government ... and encourage a more moral and ethical society."
Did you read that, "KNOW" that these things will happen, when Romney's governing record gives not one single tiny hint that this belief is anything but pure fantasy. In fact, his governing record is the opposite, where he instituted Gay Marriage and completely homosexualized the Massachusetts School System! Where he attacked the Boy Scouts for not allowing Gay scout masters! Where he provided $50 abortions and placed the Malthusian Monster, Planned Parenthood on the governing board of the Socialist Medicine he invented for the people of his state. Romney is the FATHER of American Gay marriage. Romney is the FATHER of Collectivist/Socialist Medicine in America.
Making Christian claims for Romney or Obama is a rejection of Truth the Person, a total letting loose of reality. It is capitulation to FEAR and the acceptance of the fantasy of EASE and FALSE SECURITY. According to the same Orthodox Priest, now we are supposed to "THINK, PRAY, LISTEN, READ, WATCH" so we can violate our core principles. I wonder what the Holy Fathers of each century would say about that! So SAD.
Fear is a terrible master, and the truth reminds us that FEAR is sin, because it is FAITHLESS. But I don't want to leave the wrong impression that the Orthodox are especially prone to apostasy, because I have received the same and worse from Roman Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish laymen and clergy - literally cursed and slated for hell for my simple resolved to hold to TRUTH, who is Jesus Christ.
PRAYER CONCERNING THE THREE PATHS, ONE OF THEM ROYAL.
Our Heavenly Father
Let us not be caught in the fear of servile religion; keeping Tradition out of ignorance and offering our "correctness" as sign of righteous enlightenment.
Let us not be caught in the tyranny of our rational minds, which creates "innovations" upon the faith, which leads us to hold prideful "theologies" that diminish God to the level of our understanding, or worse, which deny Him altogether.
Let us not be caught by the tyranny of our emotions, mistaking our soul's phantasy producing powers for the working of the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life.
Let us not be caught in the mere form of the visible church, but in the LIFE of it, who is Jesus Christ, the Living Word of God, present to all that truly seek Him. Let our keeping of Tradition spring from the warmth of your Love, from a heart that seeks continual repentance, from a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart you will not despise. Amen. -
Archpriest Symeon Elias.
