Christianity is not "new age" or "new world"

I am writing this to rebut the article in "Meet the New Evangelicals" in the LA Times on Sept 16, written by Mark Pinsky. He put a decidedly liberal spin on the issues facing Evangelical Christians, avoiding the real issues that are splitting certain churches, as "don't go there topics". His representation of the issues seemed to revolve around global warming and poverty, yet that is not the mission of any bona-fide Church I have been in ever.

Jesus said, "heaven and earth will pass away, but my words shall not pass away." Matthew 24:35. The entire book of Revelation describes how that will happen in the Battle of Armageddon that heralds the return of JESUS to the earth to "judge the living and the dead". There is not anything that humans have the power to do to prevent the second return of JESUS or to prevent the tribulation and the Millennium described in the Revelations, nor to prevent the final destruction of the earthly world. Any so-called minister or priest who says otherwise is a liar and a false prophet and do not heed them. Preventing the destruction of the physical world never was the goal of GOD, who destroyed it HIMSELF in the great flood of Noah's days and then recreated it again. For more proof of the purpose of the earth read the opening chapters of the Bible, in particular the book of Genesis, for the words of GOD where HE said he created the seed-bearing trees and plants for food for humans,. Also read in Leviticus the health laws of how GOD defined which animals and birds could be eaten and should be eaten and which should not be eaten [the clean and the unclean]. Any Minister or Priest or whatever title, that tells you that the physical earth is to be set aside and worshipped is from the devil, the old liar and deceiver, who wants to mock GOD and trick humans into disobeying GOD in order to lead them to hell.

Another quote in that article by Mr. Pinsky that is absolutely not true, is the one about the mission of the Church being to "relieve poverty, heal the sick and protect the faith.".
Let me dissect that quote using the words of The Bible. Two of the disciples who lived at the same time as JESUS and were HIS followers wrote that JESUS said, "for ye have the poor always with you; but Me ye have not always;" {Matthew 26: 11} and recorded again in John:8, repeated , JESUS said, "for the poor always ye have with you, but Me ye have not always." It is the duty of families in particular the men of those families to relieve the poor in their families, whether brothers or cousins or distant kin; and take care of widows and orphans. That is made very clear throughout the Old Testament and most religions that adhere to the words of GOD recognize those principles. As for "healing the sick" the healing comes from GOD or it doesn't. Luke a disciple of JESUS was not able to perform the miracles that JESUS did but to watch and observe the supernatural healing from on High. In all the New Testament records there is not one time that when a person asked JESUS for healing that HE sent them to a Priest or to a doctor. HIS healing was 1:1directly from GOD The Father in heaven flowing through the words and deeds of JESUS to the lame or the blind, or the dead [Lazarus]. As for "protecting the faith" that is the duty of governments--it seems the leaders either make provision/allowance for the worship of The ONE TRUE GOD, or they persecute the believers. JESUS did not tell us to "protect" HIM ,but to "go ye therefore and teach all nations baptizing them in the Name of THE FATHER and of The Son and of The Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you and Lo, I AM with you always, even to the end of the world." Matthew 28: 19-20. Furthermore, JESUS warned that any that hate HIM, will hate HIS followers* and that "blessed are ye which men shall revile you and persecute you and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for MY sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in heaven; for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. " Matthew 5: 11-12

Any Church or any Minister or Priest, or Imam, or whatever name they are called by, who contradicts GOD is a liar, and a false prophet. The Churches that the writer, Mark Pinsky, has described in his article are "new age religion" or "new world order" and definitely not Christian. Those churches that do not have JESUS as their head are not churches at all but 'synagogues of satan" to use the words of JESUS in Revelation 2:9 and also Revelations 3:9 . {all Scriptures here from the KING JAMES HOLY BIBLE.]

* JESUS said, "if the world hate you, ye know that it hated ME before it hated you. If ye were or the world, the world would love his own; but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, 'the servant is not greater than his Lord. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept My sayings, they will also keep yours. " John 15: 18-20
