The Left Needs to Chill Out About Christianity

Friday, April 13, 2018 14:41
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

There are things the left really hates, but it seems to me that they hate Christianity more than anything.

This has been demonstrated repeatedly throughout time. Be it booing God at the DNC, or their irrational hatred of politicians that openly show their faith.

Case in point, there’s something about Mike Pence that just drives the left insane, and it mostly has to do with his adherence to the Christian faith. Honestly, makes me wonder if Trump is the most hated man in America. The left lies consistently about his positions as it pertains to his faith. His own daughter can’t even write a kid’s book without sending the left into hate spasms.

Even beloved celebrities aren’t immune from the anti-Christian hate of the left. Just check out what happened to Guardians of the Galaxy/Jurassic World actor Chris Pratt when he asked people to pray with him for Kevin Smith.

But in terms of ludicrous reactions, the Christian based chicken sandwich chain “Chick-fil-A” gets an inordinate amount of hate. It’s chief officers are openly Christian resulting in them expressing their support for *shocker* traditional marriage when asked. This caused the mainstream media, activist groups, and a chunk of the LGBT community to go somewhat psychotic, and hold protests in front of their local Chick-fil-A. What resulted was…more business for Chick-fil-A than ever before.

Much like the NRA, Chick-fil-A seems to thrive when pressure is put upon it for its values. In fact, it’s these values combined with the quality for their food that is currently putting the chicken sandwich chain on a light-speed course to 3rd in the fast food hierarchy.

It’s expanding by leaps and bounds, and that success has Dan Piepenbring at the New Yorker going into a rant laden with indignance at the audacity of Christians to have a business that runs on Christian values.

For Piepenbring, Chick-fil-A opening a store in New York is just unconscionable, and is an “infiltration” of the worst religious kind:

“And yet the brand’s arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism,” wrote Piepenbring. “Its headquarters, in Atlanta, is adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet.”

Somebody stop the madness! The delicious, high quality madness! I bet the sweet tea is even made from holy water! It’s headquartered in that backwoods Christian hell-(Heaven?)hole city of Atlanta for Pete’s sake!

Piepenbring goes on to talk about the Chick-fil-A cows — which he considers to be a gross joke about farm animals tossing other farm animals into harms way — are out of place in New York, much like Chick-fil-A itself. He figuratively raises a fist in the air at the way Chick-fil-A tries to brand itself as — and try not to be super shocked by this — better than its competition.

“Still, there’s something especially distasteful about Chick-fil-A, which has sought to portray itself as better than other fast food: cleaner, gentler, and more ethical, with its poultry slightly healthier than the mystery meat of burgers,” wrote Piepenbring. “Its politics, its décor, and its commercial-evangelical messaging are inflected with this suburban piety.”

It’s almost like Chick-fil-A is a business trying to outsell its competitors. How horribly capitalist of them.

Piepenbring ends his article by attempting to encourage is fellow New Yorkers to refuse to patron Chick-fil-A.

“Today, the Cows’ “guerrilla insurgency” is more of a carpet bombing. New Yorkers are under no obligation to repeat what they say. Enough, we can tell them. NO MOR,” finishes Piepenbring, taking one more dig at the cow mascots.

Piepenbring makes the fatal, elitist error of assuming the majority of everyone around him agrees with him. Thankfully for all of America, the vast majority of us aren’t outraged at the site of a Christian created chicken sandwich, and take to the nearest keyboard, thesaurus in hand, and express with an upturned nose how distasteful it is to see a religiously based store be so successful.

There are two facts that Piepenbring and the rest of the left need to face. Chick-fil-A has delicious food and excellent service, and the vast majority of America is Christian. We can get in the weeds about whether or not “self-identifying” and “practicing” are two different numbers, but the end result is the same. America is good with Christian values. Even a good many atheists navigate their world by the Judeo-Christian values the west is based on, whether they acknowledge it or not.

But Piepenbring, like many on the left, suffers from an ignorance and intolerance about the average Christian.

Christians, for the most part, don’t agree with the homosexual lifestyle. However, it doesn’t mean we hate every person who is homosexual, or that we’re all going to try to make their life harder. Without a doubt, there are those out there that will try to turn a homosexual away from their gay or lesbian inclinations, but this pales in comparison to the way the mainstream media, activist groups, and the LGBT community goes after anyone who attempts to stick by his faith.

You can ask a Colorado baker who simply refused to cater a gay wedding and had to defend his choice in the Supreme Court about that. Not to mention the Memories Pizza saga. Neither one of those businesses refused to serve gay customers, just cater ceremonies that went against their religion.

Meanwhile, a gay coffee shop owner can kick out a group of people for being Christian to little backlash.

The ignorance from the left is assuming that all Christians would react the same way the gay coffee shop owner did in his position. The intolerance comes from the fact that for many on the left, there can be no disagreement in tandem with friendship. You’re either on board with it, or you’re a pariah of the highest order.

Christians are not perfect, but who is? In fact, the whole point of Christianity is the acceptance that you’re not perfect and that you need something perfect to save you. There are holier-than-thou kinds of Christians out there without a doubt, but as many on the anti-Christian left including our New Yorker friend here have shown, you don’t need to have faith in God to hold that kind of attitude.

For the most part, we Christians — or at least the majority of the multitude that I’ve met so far — aren’t interested in telling others how to live, and would prefer we be left alone as well. We want to go about our day adhering to our faith, which is likely to never do anyone harm, including those we disagree with.

We want to pray for those in need, eat our chicken sandwiches, and run our businesses in peace. I wish many on the left felt the same way, but we’re constantly assaulted with evangelist mobs of this or that interest group as they “boo” our God during their political conventions.

“You will be made to care,” says the left.

“Eat mor chicken,” says the Christian.

    The threat is we answer to a higher authority.

      Whoa to the inhabitants of the earth, for the devil has come down having GREAT wrath because he KNOWS his TIME IS SHORT.

      That has a very special meaning for those who are in the last generation. The satanic empire is in its most serious phase than ever before. They use a lot of trickery and various other techniques to deceive people and have always done this. However, it’s in the last generation that all the seeds and planting and plotting that has been in preparation for centuries spring forth for this specific time. Basically the fallen angelic realm has preserved their best ideas for deceiving until they knew the world has entered into the prophesied last generation that the Bible gives so that we can know it’s here. It’s proof if anybody really wants to know and it’s only those in the last generation that man can see it for themselves if you know how to look and use some common sense.

      Point is this. Satan has always did things to trick people into getting a misunderstanding and a hatred for the those that follow and believe in Jesus. Satan does not care what a person believes or does just as long as they don’t come to the knowledge and belief that Jesus is the only way because He is the only way. Being that we are nearing tribulation, we are beginning to see the worst time in a lot of ways, especially a hatred towards Christians and Godly things. True Godly things. I would rather be gassed as a Jew than be the Nazi but this time Christians is the Jews and the world will be the nazi. They just don’t know it. In fact many will even think they are doing God a service. Whoa to those that call good evil and evil good. Use to men agreed that man sleeping with man is evil. Not that the people was evil but the act is based on confusion and Satan is the author of confusion but now we teach our children there is nothing wrong with it. As I’ve said before if you really can discern the word of God then if you look hard enough…it is proving itself true. Everything about the descriptions and characteristics of what is says about the last generation is matching perfectly PERFECTLY! MAN CAN NOT DO THIS, ONLY AN ALL KNOWING CREATOR CAN PERIOD. You look at people’s comments and these anti bible and God comments are from people that really do think they are correct. That shows you how powerfully deceived these people are. They do not know the lies they have bought into. They can’t see how Satan has done it. To those that have grown in Gods word we can easily see the origins of the lie. They are being brainwashed and it’s the truth! Christians are the most peace seeking people. We pray for those that wish us harm. Words are put into our mouths or our beliefs are distorted causing people to get the wrong idea. We don’t hate anyone. We only hate evil not the evil doer. We don’t support that which has it’s origins in evil. Evil is not just our enemy, it their enemy as well. They know evil is evil but they don’t recognize it sometimes and in the last generations case a lot of the time. Homesuality is not natural and it is not ok because it’s destructive. It’s mental confusion and again confusion originated from satan. Slowly society has been inundated by it more and more til it’s normalized. Tell somebody something long enough they will eventually begin to believe it. People are being tricked and souls are losing salvation by the truckload and get ready because it’s just getting started! Even so, I am a Christian and if rather suffer for a short while than be cast outside of Gods presence eternally. Laugh now cry later is a motto for the fool.

        “People are being tricked and souls are losing salvation by the truckload and get ready because it’s just getting started!”

        Not so. You need to reword this, if that isn’t what you meant, or study scripture more carefully, do an in depth study on eternal life and eternal security of the repentant, born again believer, born of the Holy Spirit. People are being tricked and many are not saved, by the truckload, but their status, before whatever you say is now tricking them, has not changed: dead in trespasses and sin is dead in trespasses and sin. They had no salvation to lose, whether an atheist or a deluded, fake Christian.

        At the bottom line, it doesn’t matter what sin, doesn’t matter you were a spiritually blind and dead man, then signed-up for some new lie, than the lie you were previously living. But nobody “loses” salvation, becomes unborn again. Also, somebody born again gets their eyes opened and will not be tricked, for long, as the Spirit leads the believer to all truth.

        If you see none of these things in scripture, you need to look into your own salvation, as you’re somehow not seeing a mountain of truths, fundamental to the Christian faith, in front of you.

    (KJV) 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

    2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

    3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail
    upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

    4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

    5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

    6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

    7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

    8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love;
    and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

    9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

    10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

    from heaven with his mighty angels,

    1 Thessalonians 1:5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in
    the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

    1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God;
    that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

    Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for
    as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

    Galatians 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born
    after the Spirit, even so it is now.

    knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.

    who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

    the which we draw nigh unto God.

    Romans 9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth,
    but of God that sheweth mercy.

    and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

    Romans 8:29 For those God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son,
    so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.

    Ephesians 1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure
    which he hath purposed in himself:

    Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

    The wise hidden spirit Gentile rapture bride the Lamb’s 2nd wife has something no other church has

    1 Corinthians 10:32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles,
    nor to the church of God:

    Jesus raptured body,No tribulation No wrath or great wrath, No great white throne of
    wrath only judgement.

    1st he saves by the holy heavenly calling your spirit translated into his raptured body.
    This started the dispensation of the Gentile rapture bride the Lamb’s 2nd wife.
    It concludes Romans 11:25 fulness of the Gentiles be come in. By taking our vile bodies
    The church of the 1st born is in heaven judged quickened as strong meat,
    married in heaven with 2 adoptions of Father & Son (and we get an oath also.)

    Yes wise hidden spirit virgins judge while awaiting our vile body rapture but we also come back for war,
    and rebuild the ruins of David and the residual of men will look to Acts 15 Christ and Gentiles.

    Celestial Christ wise hidden virgin rapture bride are both judges & conseller’s,both are at the
    terrestrial great white throne of wrath only judgement the 2nd coming the 2nd wedding to
    the 2nd bridegroom these are the foolish virgin saints they are wed, part of the great whore
    of babylon forever

    Matthew 25:2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

    1 Corinthians 6:2-4 (KJV)
    2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world?
    and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
    3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
    4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least
    esteemed in the church.

    Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come.
    And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

    find or make a church that does not repent/baptize/renew/rededicate Paul’s churches were very small-

    even smaller when Caesar about wiped them out, and very hated- and fell away after his death-

    while the Temple Jews and Peters messianic w/Gentile proselytes looked on.

    BUT God, He is the God of restoration

    I show what happened in heaven and how we get back for war Matthew 24, Revelation 17:14 These shall
    make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings:
    and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

    Gentile rapture bride church of the 1st born we were raptured out of our graves (No book of Revelations plagues on our heads)
    Hosea 13:14 I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death,
    I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.

    the rest the repenters, the world and angels pay the price in their graves (many will get out for the 2nd judgement
    a lot will be thrown back into their graves as part of their judgement- many never leave their grave

    (we come back for war,rebuilding and then SOME of the watchmen,whitestone, ocuppiers, vessels of dishonor
