First Lady Laura Bush agreed to participate in the launch of the second annual "Close the Book on Hate" campaign, sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League and the Barnes & Noble bookstore chain, whose goals include stamping out opposition to the homosexual agenda. Among the campaign supporters are the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

Asked whether she knew about the involvement of homosexual activists, the First Lady’s press aide said, "Yes. When you see the reading list, you’ll see this is just what it says it is, closing the book on hate." The ADL reading list offers several well-publicized pro-homosexual books, including Daddy’s Roommate (World, 10/20/01).

[Editor]  The United Methodist denominational system is a “religious social” system with no traces of Christianity.  Under the Bush administration, social equality, patriotism, fly the flag, cater to the fag/sodomite and deficit spending will be the norm.  George W. Bush and his cabinet is gonna teach the world to respect and FEAR the good ole USA.

By gollies, America is gonna have social justice “once and for all”.  And these social justiaddicts are working themselves into a burning hell “one and all”.  See, a person can WORK his way into hell, but he cannot WORK his way into heaven

See, SAVING FAITH (Eph 2:8-9) produces works (James 2: 17-20) that reap a heavenly reward, (1 Cor: 3:13-14) and LACK of saving faith produces works unto eternal damnation. (James 2:19)

This “God Bless America “ kick is a charade/sham
The Human Rights Campaign, America’s largest homosexual political organization, invited Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to speak at its national dinner on October 6. She said that the surviving partners of homosexuals who died in the terrorist attacks should get the same benefits as the families of other victims.

"We have to make clear that what we’re fighting for is our values," the senator told the audience. "And that includes ending discrimination against gays and lesbians once and for all" (Human Rights Campaign press release, 10/8/01).

[Editor] Hilarious Hillary is fighting for the values of her world.  These influential “religious” characters are vexing my spirit, and making me, in the flesh, angry as-well, you probably know what.  The world’s values have become the organized church’s values you know.

NOTE…Synonyms for Hilarious are also, riotous, rebellious, lawless, sadistic, etc. I mention this because there is nothing “funny” about her.
Christians, Muslims, and Jews across America are praying and worshipping together more than at any other time in history," claims Christian News (10/15/01). "Surveys show that the majority of church members maintain that all religions actually worship the same God and that a person must work, at least in part, his own way to heaven." The terrorist attacks, contrary to expectations, have sparked a new era of interfaith dialog.

[Editor] Isn’t it funny how an attack on America by an enemy of the Nation Israel will bring this Nation closer to the enemies of God?  God does work in mysterious ways all right.

BUT- Good News folks.

Rev 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
Katherine Ragsdale, an Episcopalian priest, has dedicated herself to transporting minors across state lines to help them get abortions without parental consent. Ragsdale is fighting the Child Custody Protection bill that would criminalize what she does.

"We need to be looking for new ways to solve our problems, not new ways to punish victims and the people who care for them," she believes. She vows to continue "God’s calling" for her to help minors get abortions (Agape Press, 9/19/01).

[Editor] Everyone is calling themselves Christian, but Christians.  Ask a remnant of believers in a church.  A “remnant” is still in some denominational churches, you know. Ask them what they are.  “I’m a Baptist”, etc is your answer.

Here at the CHURCH in my home we meet IN COMMITMENT TO CHRIST, as there is NO OTHER NAME under heaven by which we may be saved. So we meet IN THE SAVIOURS NAME.

Buddha and Muhammad are among "the prophets of old" who "led God’s people to God’s light," claims a prayer used by Episcopal churches during the celebration of All Saints’ Day on November 4.

Charles T. A. Flood, a pastor in Philadelphia, wrote the prayer after assisting during the World Trade Center disaster. The person who distributed the two-page prayer was George Packard, the Episcopal bishop for the armed services, health care and prison ministries (Christian News, 11/12/01).

[Editor] Worried about you son or daughter in the Armed Forces?  Well, you should be.  Not to worry so about the enemies of the flesh, but spiritual forces in high places (Eph 6:12) working through the organized churches. Not to worry so about Islamic terrorists, bullets and bombs, anthrax and smallpox, but worry and pray about the state of the organized church and the ministers of unrighteousness in the Synagogues of Satan.

BUT-Good News AGAIN.
2 Cor 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; “whose end shall be according to their works”.

No, not to worry so, if your son or daughter is a child of God.  WORRY? YES! But worry MORE about the deceptive teachings by the ministers of Satan who are transformed into the appearance of ministers of righteousness.(2 Cor 11:14-15)

Matt 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Luke 12:4-5 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

FEAR the organized church that will deceive you and give God the right to cast you into hell.

Prov 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

If you have wisdom and the knowledge and the understanding of that which is holy you will not be deceived.

If you fear God and what He can do TO you and FOR you, you will receive this knowledge of “His Truth” by STUDYING  “His Word” as found in the “*Bible ”. (2 Tim 2:15)

*King James Version of the Bible in the English Language and the Textus Receptus/Masoretic text in all other Bible translation work is an accurate translation of the Greek and Hebrew Scriptures which were given in the very words determined of the Holy Spirit
A giant "church" in Los Angeles has grown to nearly 7,000 members using many of the same "church growth" techniques of others.  They have a choir, praise songs, informal dress, dynamic speaking, megachurches and multiple outreaches. Although it claims to be a "church," the center promotes a mix of beliefs. "Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, young, old, rich, poor—we cut across all lines," Pastor Michael Beckwith told USA Today (World, 12/15/01).

[Editor] Folks, the One World Religion is coming together faster than most Christians realize.  My heart is fearful.  Will our children or our grandchildren live a life of peaceful worship and spiritual freedom as we have?  How blessed my generation and generations before me have been in this country.

What is happening to Christians in Arabic/Muslim countries will soon be upon us here in America.  Persecution is on its way folks.  Sure, our children and grandchildren, if they be a child of God, will have the Hand of God overseeing them as we have, but that is not to say that they, too, will experience the religious freedom, FREE FROM PERSECUTION as we have been so abundantly blessed.

WE are privileged Christians, folks, and this in itself, makes me feel guilty.  WHY so much religious persecution in the world, now, and in the past, and yet American Christians have been spared.

Why me Lord? 
What have I ever done to deserve even one, 
Of the pleasures I've known? 
Tell me Lord, 
What did I ever do that was worth loving you, 
For the kindness you've shown. 
Lord help me Jesus I've wasted it so, 
Help me Jesus, I know what I am. 
But now that I know that I've needed you so, 
Help me Jesus my soul's in your hands. 
Try me Lord, 
If you think there's a way I can try to repay, 
All I've taken from you. 
Maybe Lord, 
I can show someone else what I've been through myself, 
On my way back to you. 
Lord help me Jesus I've wasted it so, 
Help me Jesus, I know what I am. 
But now that I know that I've needed you so, 
Help me Jesus my soul's in your hands. 
Lord help me Jesus I've wasted it so, 
Help me Jesus, I know what I am. 
But now that I know that I've needed you so, 
Help me Jesus my soul's in your hands.

Jesus my soul's in your hands.
Sung by Kris Kristofferson

 According to a new survey, over the last decade America has continued to drift from its Christian roots.  The American Religious Identification Study looked at religion in America today compared to what it was ten years ago.

Among the findings is that a growing number of Americans no longer know—or no longer care—about denominational distinctions.  Although people who call themselves Protestant still make up the dominant group (52%), that number is down from 60% in 1990.  Almost a quarter (24.5%) responded they were Roman Catholics, down 2%.

In contrast, non-Christian religions all reported huge increases.  Muslims are up 110%, Hindus 237%, and Wiccan more than 1500%.  In addition, those who claimed to have no religion, including atheists, agnostics, and humanists, increased 106% in the last ten years (AgapePress, 12/31/01).

[Editor] The end is near. Jesus is coming soon.  Our “good times” here on this earth is almost over. Yes, I look forward to Jesus coming again, but I have lived a full life as a FREE man and my heart grieves for my children and grandchildren.

Why did “I” have it so good only to know that “they” will soon suffer persecution?  Lord, enable them to persevere. AMEN

The messenger cries WOLF! (Matt 7:15; Acts 20:29)  The watchman sees the SWORD coming upon the land and warns the people.  (Eze 33:2-3)

Secretary of State Colin Powell participated in a Ramadan ceremony at the State Department, encouraging Muslims to go out and tell other Americans about Islam: "You are doing that, reaching out to Christians and Jews and letting everybody know we are all creatures and children of a benevolent god, and we must come to understand that to love one another is being faithful to our god."
(AgapePress, 12/7/01).

[Editor] Folks, the cancer of “complete” apostasy is spreading fast.  American has only a short time to live.

What do you think of Colin Powell now?  The cabinet of Bush is Burning.  BURNING its “mark” on the world and TURNING American away from God,  with MOST churches in FULL cooperation

Nearly one hundred chapters of the United Way have vowed not to give money to the Boy Scouts unless they allow homosexual scout leaders (AgapePress, 11/6/01).

[Editor]  How many Christian give to the United Way?  We here at the Neckar house get solicitations but we NEVER give.  The Lord put that in my heart right after I was saved.  See, it don’t take long for the Holy Spirit of God to go to work on a new believer.  Trouble is, so many new, or presumed believers ignore the Work of the Spirit in their lives.

ONE little question.  WHY do children of God go to such “extremes” to intentionally” grieve the Spirit of their Savior?  Seems that some of them vow to make this their “lifelong” vocation.  SHAME.

The archbishop of Canterbury praised Muhammad at an address in Bahrain, November 3, 2001. Speaking on the topic "How Far Can We Travel Together?" the head of the Anglican Church said, "I can say unreservedly that Muhammad was clearly a great religious leader whose influence on millions has been for the good. We can acknowledge too the ways in which his teaching and that of Jesus Christ and of the Hebrew Scriptures have so much in common" (Christian News, 12/10/01).

[Editor]  Now tell me that the Muslim religion is not gonna play an important part in the last days departure from the faith (1 Tim 4:1) once delivered to the saints. (Jude 1:3)

By the way. Allah had no son.

James Shelby Spong, a controversial Episcopal bishop who retired in January 2000, has caused a new stir with his book A New Christianity for a New World (HarperSanFrancisco). Already known for his denial of Christ’s Virgin Birth and Resurrection, Spong offers a radical vision of his true beliefs.

According to Religious News Service, Spong’s "career-capping book" offers "disaffected former churchgoers a nontheist, nondoctrinal way of being Christian."

"The reformation I am proposing may well kill Christianity," Spong suggests (Christian News, 12/3/01).

[Editor] Folks, Spong is not a “one man” show.  This apostasy is in FULL SWING and accelerated beyond control.  There are “to many to count” feeding this frenzy.

WAKE UP-LOOK UP.  You know what draws nigh. (Luke 21, emphasis on verse 28)
The purpose of this article?  Don’t believe EVERYTHING you hear. Let the WALK match the TALK.  Talk is CHEAP. Ignore WORDS ALONE and let FRUIT and WORKS speak. They will speak VOLUMES.

You know, the world would be a much “better” place, yea, a much “happier” place, if only people would behave; act; live; like they talk. If only they were what they claim to be. If only they gave “evidence” of what they claim to be.

If we are alive, we breathe, don’t we?  We eat and we sleep, don’t we? We walk and we talk, don’t we?  We DO things, don’t we? WE ARE NOT DEAD!

We are physically alive and we show signs to that effect.  Our aliveness is made manifest isn’t it? People around us know that; WE ARE ALIVE

Beyond any doubt, they know, don’t they?

If someone asks us if we are alive, what is our answer?  We say, yes, of course we are alive.  CAN’T YOU SEE!

Yes, you and I both can see that this statement is true.  WE CAN SEE.

By their fruits we shall know them.  Their fruit tells us that, YES, THEY ARE PHYSICALLY ALIVE INDEED.

They show signs of being alive.  They talk and walk and act like a live person.  They do not act like a corpse.  They do not appear as a DEAD PERSON.

These people are telling an “obvious; clear; apparent; evident” truth. Hurrah for them.  IT IS EVIDENT. 

They are physically alive. 


It feels good to associate with people of like manner, doesn’t it?  Isn’t the world much better off with LIVE PEOPLE in it?  Aren’t you much happier to live amongst LIVE PEOPLE?

Now that I have spoken of the PHYSICAL SIDE OF LIFE, I wish to speak about what is bothering me so, that brought this letter to mind.

See, there is a SPIRITUAL SIDE OF LIFE too.  This is the most important side of life.  Don’t you wish that all the people, especially those that you are fond of, would show SPIRITUAL SIGNS OF LIFE?

Don’t you wish, yea, and even pray endlessly, that all of your friends and acquaintances would give “obvious; clear; apparent; evident” signs of SPIRITUAL LIFE.

Don’t you wish that “everybody” would be what they claim to be?  Oh, how happy we would be. 

We can KNOW that we have eternal life. (1 John 5:13)

We can also pretty much know if OTHERS have eternal life. By THEIR FRUIT we shall KNOW THEM.

By “observation” we can have just about enough personal knowledge of ones spiritual condition to get at least an “inkling; hint; clue; feeling” of another’s spiritual state, can’t we?  Well, God says we can, you know.

God says a CHRISTIAN WILL BEAR FRUIT.  GOOD FRUIT. Maybe not much, but he will BEAR FRUIT.  He will bear SOME fruit.  Enough fruit to at least give just an “inkling” of eternal life.  ETERNAL LIFE; the salvation brought about by the Person and Work of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  The Christian will bear enough fruit to “at least” give a “shred” of evidence of one’s prior repentance towards God and faith towards the Lord Jesus Christ.

But what if some of those you know that claim to be brothers in the Lord give no evidence of eternal life by not bearing ANY fruit.  NO FRUIT at all..


I wish people would act like they talk.  I wish they would live like the sort of person they say they are.  It is almost impossible to read a carnal Christian.  Are they, or aren’t they a Christian?  Only God knows for sure.

See, I hate it when someone treats my Lord and my Savior like a piece of dirt.  I hate it when people that claim the very SAME Jesus as mine, as their LORD and Savior, and wouldn’t walk across the street for Him, or give MY FATHER in heaven the time of day.

Folks, I hate it; it vexes my soul, to bear with false, or carnal Christians.  

I hate being kept in the dark.  I wish their works would identify them clearly.

James 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

I am willing to SHOW my saving faith.  I will not play the hypocrite and call Christ LORD and treat Him like dung. How can a carnal Christian go to a church somewhere and sing almost any hymn, when in reality they refuse to give Christ the “time of day”, much less “themselves.”

Look over almost ANY hymn.  Carnal Christians that sing these songs are hypocrites.
The Way of the Cross Leads Home. (Then “I” bid farewell to the way of the world, to walk in it never more) hypocrisy
When I Survey the Wondrous Cross (all the vain thing that charm me most “I” sacrifice them to his blood.) hypocrisy
Beneath the Cross of Jesus. (content to let the world go by) hypocrisy
Tell Me the Story of Jesus (tell ME the story most precious) hypocrisy-Jesus talk seems to offend many of them.
I Surrender All- (I surrender all) hypocrisy
Blessed Assurance (watching & waiting, looking above) hypocrisy

HYPOCRITES.  All of them. False Christians and Carnal Christians. HYPOCRITE

See, Christ’s sheep HEAR His voice and guess what?  THEY FOLLOW HIM..  You’re not following Christ?  Is Christ a liar? No?  Why, then, are you not following Him?  Let’s go over this again.  Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, says saved, heaven bound people, whom He calls His sheep will FOLLOW Him.

THEY FOLLOW HIM.  They DON”T treat Him like trash.  Who treats Christ like trash?  Those that IGNORE Him.  Those that refuse to study His Word.  Those who you NEVER hear speak of ANYTHING spiritual as if though “Jesus Talk” offends them.  THOSE KINDS treat Him like trash.

Did you know that lost sinners that do not know Jesus Christ do not offend me?  THEY are not HYPOCRITES.  They don’t CLAIM to know Jesus. Very few here in American cannot claim to at least know ABOUT Jesus.  ALL Hico does.  They know ABOUT Him and many claim to KNOW him.

What is so SAD is that MOST that claim to KNOW Him live just like the ones that only know ABOUT Him.  They ALL have ONE THING in common.  They are BOTH living FOR the World and FOR themselves.

One is IGNORANT and one is a HYPOCRITE.  I can tolerate ignorance.

Now, lets take the agnostic.  You don’t want to?  I DO. HE is not a HYPOCRITE.  HE will come right out and tell you who he is. HE doesn’t try and HIDE his biblical standing. He CLEARLY is what he is.

I believe, yes I do believe that an agnostic would be easier to lead to salvation than a false Christian.  How can we lead one to Christ when he thinks he is ALREADY saved? 

Luke 6:21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for “ye shall laugh”. (a sign of joy-satisfaction.)

I pray that I can experience that joy and be satisfied here in my lifetime.  I pray that I may experience the joy of manifested spiritual fruit in some of those I witness to and preach to.

John 16:20-21 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.

Oh the joy hoped for, of manifested works meet for repentance, and the bearing of good fruit. Oh, the joy of good works that gives some evidence of one delivered from hell unto life everlasting.

Those of you with a heavy heart because of the lack of spirituality of loved ones, family members and good friends, take heed.  I know where you are coming from. Been there-felt that. Let us pray for each other.

We Must Earnestly Contend For The Faith-Jude 1:3
