America’s Appalling Ignorance
of Christianity

American Spectator, by Janice Shaw Crouse

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 5/3/2014 7:05:56 AM

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof recently wrote about the lack of religious knowledge in America today and argued that a person cannot understand the world without knowing something about the world’s religions, including Pentecostals and Evangelicals. Kristof admitted that when he was covering the presidential campaign of George W. Bush, he was surprised at how the candidate connected with Americans because of his evangelical faith; more surprisingly, Kristof admitted that he had “only the vaguest idea at the time what an evangelical was.” Kristof’s column includes a four-paragraph litany of Biblical “facts” and asks readers to find the mistakes

The article is rich with facts that non-Christians should know.

Throughout much of the nation’s history, Evangelical beliefs — basic Judeo-Christian values — have been the prevailing morality and dominant belief system, worldview, of the American people.

We are reaping what we have sown. But God is watching and waiting for the time when we either decide to wander back to Him, tail between our legs, or for the time when He will do to America what He did to Rome. It´s His call and we´d damn well better be ready.

"Evangelicals" have had their reputation tarnished by TV preachers, "health and wealth" gospels, "You have a right to be happy" gospels, and other obvious huckstering faux Christians who have little similarity to real Christians at all.

Evangelical Christianity isn´t some wild-eyed, Bible-waving, Koran-burning sect of Christianity. It IS Christianity, non-denominational, mostly. Evangelicals are Christians who have gotten sick of the denominational differences, mostly liberal theology and universalism, and who want to go back to plain old Biblical Christianity; the things Jesus taught, sans all the Church rules and regulations.

Kevin Roose didn’t find “hostile demagogues,” instead he “was surprised at the level of critical thinking, the refreshing lack of distractions that the ‘rules’ provided, and how hard the coursework is.”

Amazing, isn´t it? As a teacher of advanced Bible studies, I can attest to the truth of that statement: My classes required serious homework -- nothing light and fluffy, but instead, real honest-to-God work, using the mind, critical thought and logic skills.

Once people understand that Christianity is not comprised of the stereotypical backwards hill-people bitter clingers the media are so quick to promote, they are often shocked that "OMG, these people are really smart!"

...continued

I was recently asked by a lapsed Catholic how I came to be a convert from my lifetime of Atheism (I´m a Jew) to Christianity. I told her that reason and logic and years of investigation were the main reasons. (Telling her that it was ultimately God´s work wouldn´t have cut it until deeper discussions were in order). She was surprised. She honestly didn´t believe that Christians actually think and reason and study. She believed the stereotype that they are all weak, ignorant people who need crutches through life, and who only need God when things are rough.

This is a total misreading of Christianity. For the Christian, God is ever-present and always in touch, even in the good times.

Sure, there are still pockets of "Christian" crazies. Anomalies abound in every group. Christianity shouldn´t be judged on its abuses. Neither should Atheism or Humanism.

Because morality comes from God (a long, complicated philosophical discussion), the decadence, corruption, lying, deceit and sexual immorality we see today is due to a lessening of God´s influence in our culture.

People have been trying to kill off Christianity and the Bible for thousands of years. It won´t work. It isn´t planned that way.

For those wanting to know what Christianity is really all about, I recommend (ex-Atheist) C.S.Lewis´ "Mere Christianity" to begin with. While certainly not his deepest work, it´s a good start for those with curious minds.

I´m not surprised by this. While many people attend church regularly, they are still drinking milk and playing with their baby rattles. They want their ears tickled, as the Apostle wrote; they want to hear "nice" and comfortable things from the pulpit. They aren´t willing to take up the offense of the cross daily. I came across an article by Bryan Purtle (http://bryananthony.org/2013/11/05/porcelain-christendom/), in which he wrote:

"We are hiding in Christendom’s cultural basement and playing with baby rattles, while a war is on all around us.

"Jesus said, “When you pray, go into your room and shut the door…”

We’re going to have to “shut the door” on this world, saints- to more frequently turn our backs on our devices, our hobbies, our multitudinous distractions, even some of our so-called “ministries”, if we’re going to be to the Lord, to our families, to the Church, and to our cities what the Lord is calling us to be; namely, a priestly people, a holy people, a broken and loving people, a God-saturated people— witnesses to the glory of the crucified and risen Christ in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation. We are going to suffer resistance for that kind of life, but the Lord will bear much fruit through us, if we are willing to live as “broken bread and poured out wine.”

We´re living in a crooked and perverse generation, yet I doubt that this has really sunk in for most of those who call themselves Christians. There is more often than not no real discernible difference between the pagans and those who claim to be following Christ. You cannot be salt and light if you´re not earnestly in the Word.

I have spent the last couple of years reading various takes on the SUMMA THEOLOGICA, written by the most concise reasonable thinker in history, Thomas Aquinas.
The SUMMA says it all, if one can keep up with Thomas´ reasoning.
Backward? Hardly.

Churchianity is not Christianity. Jesus arose from the dead, and we can have a relationship with God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Many of the people who do go to church are playing at being good and following rules, and entertaining themselves with music and activities rather than learning from God´s word and listening for His voice.

We are living in the end times, and things are about to change drastically. People who think churchianity is enough to carry them through will be mighty disappointed. The spiritual world is real. Get acquainted with it from God´s Word. It´s there that we find that Jesus says we must be born again. That´s not playing games. That´s a transformation that only God can do in our lives. He is trustworthy if we come to Him.

Victor Hugo, author of Les Miserables once said, "England has two books, the Bible, and Shakespere. England made Shakespere, but the Bible made England."

Immanuel Kant, one of the world´s most influential philosophers, once said, "The Bible is the greatest benefit which the human race has ever experienced... A single line in the Bible has consoled me more than all the books I´ve ever read besides."

President John Quincy Adams treated the Bible as the key education resource for his children: "So great is my veneration for the Bible that the earlier my children begin to read it, the more confident will be my hope that they will prove useful citizens of their country and respectable members of society."

A number of years ago 1,200 university presidents and 1,000 CEO´s were asked to name the book that had most affected their lives. The Bible was by far the most influential book in this survey of leaders. One in four listed the Bible as the most important book in their lives. The second book on the list - Charles Dickens´ A Tale of Two Cities was named most influential by one in twenty-five.

There is only ONE way (John 14:6) to have a personal relationship with God, who is one in Essence, but three in person, the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit. It is only through the redemptive work of His Son, Jesus Christ on our behalf, by means of the Power of the Holy Spirit that we receive Spiritual Regeneration at the moment of our belief in His Saving Work.

No one can own our free will. No one can make us believe in something. Only WE can believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and be eternally saved, or reject Him, and follow Satan and his faithless followers into their Lake of Fire forever. There are no "works" to be done, as Christ did it all. Nothing to confess, nothing to mutter aloud. In thought only, in the privacy of your own soul, say, "Father, I believe in Your Son, Jesus Christ and receive Him as my Savior;" and that´s the moment of your eternal salvation! You now exist in "The Lamb´s Book of Life;" and spared from Satan´s Lake of Fire.

After our so great salvation we embark on a life of learning about God, and depending on Him, as a sheep does on his Good Shepherd.

American voters are angry with both the White House and Republican lawmakers for their bungled handling of the growing crisis on the border between the U.S. and Mexico, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. The survey, which was conducted from July 9-13 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points, found that 58 percent of survey respondents disapprove of President Obama´s handling of the sudden surge of unaccompanied minors who have flooded the border. And of the self-identified Latino adults surveyed in the report, 54 percent say they are definitely unhappy with the White House´s

Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey will make his most significant and elaborate return to the presidential arena this week amid indications that, despite his tribulations, his political standing has stabilized and his advisers see a possible path to the Republican nomination in 2016. Mr. Christie’s three-city swing through Iowa, the first state to have a say on the presidential race, will represent a highly public resumption of his White House ambitions after six months of scandal. It was deliberately constructed to showcase what his advisers believe distinguishes him from the emerging Republican field: his personality and ability to interact spontaneously

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham endorsed Joe Carr, the Republican Senate challenger to Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), as a new poll shows that he is gaining significant support in his campaign. A new poll conducted by Triton Polling, shows that Carr has jumped sixteen points in his race against Alexander in Tennessee since May. Alexander now leads Carr 43-36 percent. The results show that 6.7 percent of voters chose long shot candidate George Flinn, four percent chose another candidate and 10.1 percent were not sure. In May the same poll showed Alexander leading by 44-20.

What do we need to turn our country around? Well, for starters, we need a president who stops getting his energy policies from Hollywood movies — and Hollywood liberals. Consider President Obama’s dithering when it comes to approving the Keystone XL pipeline. First proposed in 2008, this massive infrastructure project would bring low-cost crude oil from fields in Canada southward to the United States. Despite nearly six years of government reviews — and nearly four dozen oil and gas pipelines already safely operating between the U.S. and Canada — the Obama administration and the State Department still have not approved the

Miroslav Klose scored a record-setting 16th career World Cup goal in a five-goal spurt in the first half as Brazil’s defense was torn apart. The Germans reached their eighth final and will face either Argentina or the Netherlands on Sunday at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

Whenever the subject of politics and religion comes up, some individuals wish to believe that the two are not connected. Yet, many people are concerned with the speed of America’s moral collapse. Throughout both the bible and world history, the two have collided (wars were fought over religion). When the Kings and Judges in the bible were godly, the people and the land flourished. On the other hand, the evil kings and judges brought famine and destruction upon the people and the land (does any of this sound familiar?)

Dr. Ben Carson once made the observation that “political correctness” acts as a “muzzle” to quell legitimate dissent against the status quo. That is undoubtedly a true statement. But to drive in the stakes and build our intellectual ramparts on this point is little more than ceding coveted ground in an argument against a completely unfounded doctrine that presents falsehoods as facts. There is a more fundamental observation upon which we can mount our legitimate defense against the doctrine of “political correctness,” and it lies in the simplest inspection of the phrase “politically correct.” Inherent in those two words’ juxtaposition is

State Sen.

On Thursday, his campaign announced the “challenge” in the latest episode in a circus of a Senate race. On June 24, incumbent Sen.

By its own admission, the Arab world loves death more than it loves life. Consider that "during all periods of their history, the ancient Egyptians seem to have spent much of their time thinking of death and making provisions for their afterlife. The vast size ... and the ubiquity of their funerary monuments bear testimony to this obsession." Consider that the Palestinian world teaches its children to embrace shahid, or martyrdom. It is an aberrant culture where parents celebrate their own children´s deaths by the promotion of suicide terrorism.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
