7th-grader told to kill herself for not denying God

In a story gaining momentum since late October, a seventh-grader from Katy, Texas, was made to state “God is a myth” by her middle-school teacher. Now the student is facing startling repercussions for her refusal to back down.

It started when 12-year-old Jordan Wooley’s teacher assigned a quiz at West Memorial Junior High School asking students to label statements as “fact, assertion, or opinion.”

Statements included “America is the most free country on Earth,” and “there is a God.” Jordan said the assignment was to identify “factual claims, commonplace assertions and opinions.” She said she originally answered the statement “there is no God” in two ways, according to a local CBS News affiliate.

Jordan labeled the latter as “fact,” and her teacher told her to mark it otherwise, or face an “F” grade.

“I said it was fact or opinion,” Jordan told the station. “Based on my religion and based on what I think and believe, I do not think it was a commonplace assertion.”

Wooley says her seventh-grade reading teacher said both her answers were wrong and that she had to admit God wasn’t real.

“It was really confusing to me at first because I didn’t really know what to do, so the first thing I did was tell my mom,” Wooley said.

The child’s mother, Chantal, said, “That a kid was literally graded against her faith in God in a classroom so who would want to be known. … So the kids were caught in a Catch-22. If they argued their faith, they were being told they were arguing against their faith and that happened in the classroom.”

Jordan later testified in front of Katy Independent School District’s Board of Education meeting on how her friend went home crying after the assignment for being forced to express doubts about her faith.

The Katy ISD released a statement saying, in part, that the assignment was intended to encourage critical thinking and dialogue and not question any students’ religious beliefs.

“Still this does not excuse the fact that this ungraded activity was ill-conceived and because of that, its intent had been misconstrued,” Katy ISD said in its statement.

The district backed the teacher, who said the assignment was “misunderstood.” However after its investigation, “the district said the particular assignment was ‘unnecessary for achieving the instructional standard’ and pointed out that the teacher is actually a Christian and the assignment was misunderstood,” reported Christian Today.

“The teacher is distraught by this incident, as some commentary has gone as far as to vilify her without knowing her, her Christian faith, or the context of the classroom activity,” Frailey said during a news conference on Wednesday.

Now Jordan is experiencing fallout from her refusal to back down from her story and for standing up for her beliefs. She says she has been bullied and told to kill herself after media coverage of the incident.

“The Katy Independent School District claimed that it never happened and that Wooley’s story could not be verified,” notes IJ Review. “But Wooley would not relent, calling the school board ‘liars,’ and demanding an apology in a statement on Monday.”

Wooley’s mother, Chantel, said, “Jordan’s faith is continually being tested. She feels like she’s being made to be a liar when all that she did was tell the truth. … She was harassed at school, she was flipped off in the hallway, she was cursed at and blamed for this situation that her teacher and administration has created. She has chosen to forgive them and pray for them.”

Detractors have dismissed the controversy. “The outrage expressed by Jordan and her supporters is essentially directed at anyone who is trying to categorize what religious beliefs really are,” notes Crooks and Liars. “If you say it’s a belief and NOT A FACT, they will get very defensive and accuse you of not respecting their particular brand of what amounts to commonplace assertions. If you suggest it’s a myth, even without using those words, the staunch believer will become agitated and appalled at the mere notion that everyone doesn’t believe exactly as they do. So much for an assignment in the Bible Belt to discuss the differences between facts and beliefs. No wonder the GOP reigns supreme where the word ‘fact’ is a subjective matter.” [Emphasis in original.]

On “Fox and Friends Weekend” with Clayton Morris, Jordan stated, “A few people have told me to kill myself, people have told me things I’m not allowed to say. I’ve lost a few of my close friends, but that’s what will happen.”

When Morris asks her if she’s thought of giving up, however, Wooly replied, “I’m going to keep going until something gets done, and until something gets done, I’m not going to stop.”

Unbelievable: Obama’s VA issues BAN on Christmas trees…this happens IMMEDIATELY

 

President-Barack-Obama-addressed-crowd-Washington-DC-during

Sadly, we’ve come to expect attempts at “sanitizing” the Christmas holiday to strip it of Christian connotations that might offend the perpetually-offended, just as we’ve come to expect President Obama’s lack of respect both for our Constitution and the men and women who’ve valiantly served to protect it. But when the Obama administration combined these three fouls into one giant hat trick, it didn’t go over so well with veterans who wish to mark one of the biggest Christian holidays of the year.

Via Breitbart:

President Barack Obama’s Department of Veterans Affairs has banned employees at its facility in Salem, Virginia, from saying “Merry Christmas” to veterans.

It started as a broader ban that included Christmas trees. Federal law recognizes Christmas as an official federal holiday (5 U.S.C. § 6103) and provides federal employees with a paid day off to celebrate the Christian belief in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ.

Every year, a White House Christmas Tree and a Capitol Christmas Tree grace those two respective buildings in Washington D.C., and a National Christmas Tree is also officially lighted outdoors for the public to enjoy during that time of year.

Yet the “Executive Leadership Team” at the Salem VA Medical Center banned Christmas trees, as well as other Christian speech and celebrations. As reported by local media, an email sent by senior staff to the center’s employees reads in part:

…Public areas may only be decorated in a manner that is celebratory of the winter season. Displays must not promote any religion. Please note that trees (regardless of the types of ornaments used) have been deemed to promote the Christian religion and will not be permitted in any public areas this year.

Just hours ago, pressure from the center’s employees caused the management team to cave on the Christmas tree ban. Christmas trees are back in at the facility.

So that’s the good news. Good for the employees for voicing their dismay!

However, the VA is maintaining that “private religious expressions can only be uttered in “personal work areas.” That means employees can only speak freely in places where the public usually cannot enter and, even then, only if the recipient would clearly understand that the speaker is speaking in his personal capacity only.

In other words, an employee could be punished for wishing “Merry Christmas” to a veteran in the lobby or any other public area.

In other words, an employee could by punished by the government for exercising their First Amendment right.

Even when those stringent curbs are obeyed, the email directive adds that private religious speech can still be banned if managers decide such speech “interfere[s] with carrying out official duties and responsibilities,” threatening penalties against people who offer religious greetings even behind closed doors.

The email also bars Christmas music, saying that if a supervisor has allowed an employee to have music in his workspace, such music must “be secular (non-religious).”

The message from the center’s top leaders says that VA employees who need further guidance about the removal of religious symbols should “contact the Chaplain Service at ext. 2165.”

VA email

Interesting to note that the VA chooses to mention “at this time of year” — hmm, think they issued a similar memo around Ramadan?

“At a time when our VA should be doing everything it can to honor our veterans, it instead denigrates them and their service,” said Michael Berry, senior counsel with Liberty Institute, the largest law firm in the United States that litigates exclusively religious liberty cases.

“Any VA employee—whether they work at the Salem VA Center or elsewhere—who feels that their free-speech or religious-liberty rights are being violated, they should contact us immediately,” he told Breitbart News. The firm’s website is www.libertyinstitute.org.

Make sure to spread the word amongst your veteran friends and family, folks. We must continue to stand vigilant against attacks on our freedoms — first and foremost, against those inflicted by our own government. Fourteen months and counting down for Obama’s America; we can’t afford to snooze for even one minute!

And let me be the first to say a hearty MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and yours!!!

THE SATANIC ELITE: AMERICAN MIND CONTROL AND WORLD GOVERNMENT

aNWO_Puppets_JD08aThere exists a secretive Satanic elite, that consists of perhaps twelve men at the very top, who rule the world through banking and international finance. Publicly these men pretend to be humanists, but secretly they have to chosen to worship Lucifer. They are now in the process of the final take over, where they will bring in a one world government and one world economic system, beginning as early as 2018. Their primary means of achieving this goal is through control of the economy and through scientific mind control.

In the United States, the primary evidence for the success of their mind control operation is the fact that the thinking, belief systems, morality, behavior and religious beliefs of the average American have radically changed in just a few short decades. The elites have perfected social engineering to such an extent that they have now indoctrinated several generations of Americans into being anti-Christian, anti-American and Marxist in their belief systems.

The stealthy nature of their strategy has developed politicians at the highest level who are programmed like Manchurian candidates with synthetic personalities and they have developed Manchurian actors and entertainers as well.

Going back to the League of Nations, around 1918, the church was the special target for social engineering through the efforts of one of the Dulles brothers, who was financed by Rockefeller. Today the majority of American Christians and churches no longer believe in things like Satan, prophecy and the Antichrist, The Satanic elite know who their Master is and will follow His orders unto death. Unlike Christians who no longer go to church and read their Bibles, a highly organized and hierarchical army of Satanists faithfully perform their Satanic rituals which include human sacrifice of babies and the abduction of children, along with adults. Their rituals include the drinking of human blood, drug taking, brutal rape and sexual orgies. Many of the people at the highest levels of government, finance, media and culture participate in these Satanic orgies and rituals in deep underground in caves in Europe and other locations around the world.

For those who know how to recognize their Luciferian symbols, they are openly displayed everywhere. It is more than strange that some of the most powerful men in the world meet regularly at the Bohemian Grove and offer mock sacrifices of babies on a giant statue of Moloch or Baal, in Northern California. It is very revealing that the U.S. dollar has an Illuminati/occult pyramid, with the all-seeing eye of Lucifer and the words in Latin, Novus Ordo Seclorum or New Order of the Ages, which means New World Order printed on the back of it. In fact, the all-seeing eye of Lucifer is clearly seen on numerous multinational corporation logos along with a vast array of blatantly occult symbols.

One of the most famous Satanists of recent times was Aleister Crowley, who was called, “The Great Beast 666.” In 1904, Crowley received a supernatural communication from what he called a “praeterhuman intelligence.” This was the basis for Crowley’s book, The Book of the Law, upon which Crowley’s religious philosophy, Thelema was built. Crowley and his followers were accused of human sacrifice and other Satanic rituals. Aleister Crowley’s face is on the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club album and he is a kind of saint to the giants of the music industry. But according to declassified documents, Crowley worked with British Intelligence and high-ranking members of the American government. The O.T.O.-secret society he founded had some of the world’s most powerful and influential people of his time.

Today we see the counterculture revolution as the Presidents and Prime Ministers of many nations. But the counterculture revolution of the 1960’s was manufactured by a secret scientific and occult elite in Great Britain. This elite modeled their occult vision for America’s youth on the pagan cult ceremonies of the Egyptian and Roman Empires. The Egyptian Isis Priesthood of the third millennium B.C., had its roots in Babylon, as Isis is another name for the wife of Nimrod, who was originally called Semiramis.

These Babylonian occult ceremonies were essentially about mind control. The incantations, dances, beating of drums, use of psychedelic drugs and repetitive movements put people into deep trance states where they could be controlled.

The influence of Aleister Crowley’s Thelemic philosophy and his vision of a New Aeon in countless films, television programs and booksis a reminder of the powerful influence that this Satanist had on our global culture. In fact, prominent members of Crowley’s O.T.O. were (and still are) heavily involved in the production of Hollywood movies, embedding within their plots Thelemic tenets. Since the beginning, science fiction is a favored genre to expose viewers to what is called predictive programming.

Crowley’s vision of a New Aeon or New Age influenced the mass media, especially in the area of science fiction films and books. Allegedly, science fiction authors like Robert Heinlein, L. Ron Hubbard, Arthur C. Clarke and A.H. White helped shape Crowley’s vision of the future through a brain washing technique called predictive programming. A coming New World Order was downloaded into the American subconscious through predictive programming. When you see television and films in our time, you see numerous depictions of predictive programming and mind control at work, especially in the areas of science fiction and fantasy.

Crowley’s belief in a New Aeon matches perfectly with the Illuminati plan for a new world order ruled by a secret elite. The Illuminati Manifesto, upon which the Communist Manifesto got many of its ideas, is moving at lightning speed to establish a World Socialist Government. The characteristics of this government fit perfectly with the world government under Antichrist and the one world economic system, along with theone world religion created by the False Prophet in the Book of Revelation. It is not an accident that Mystery Babylon and Babylon the Great is mentioned numerous times in the Book of Revelation.

The first one world government, one world economic system and one world religion was started by Nimrod at the Tower of Babel, or ancient Babylon. The reason God judged Babylon, was because he could see that it was an attempt by man to become god, by building a tower to the stars. Babylon in its essence was about a revolution against God and an attempt by man to replace God with the collective. It is not by accident that Communism’s true origins are found in the occult teachings of the Illuminati and that the international bankers, who financed both the Bolshevik Revolution and Hitler, were part of the Illuminati. In fact, Karl Marx was a practicing member of a Satanic church and Lenin knew that his power came from the Illuminati.

Totalitarianism is always a revolution against the Kingdom of God –always! Every Communist, Socialist and National Socialist movement is the spirit of Antichrist attempting to overthrow the rule of God. It is not an accident that Lenin referred to the first revolutionary, meaning Satan. It is not a coincidence that Saul Alinksy’s book, “Rules for Radicals” was dedicated to Lucifer. Alinsky writes on his dedication page.

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history… the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”

Theoretically, the pathway to a socialist dictatorship is no longer bloody revolution. Mind control is far more effective in destroying Christianity and establishing a totalitarian state. The science of mind control is now capable of mass brainwashing.

Aldous Huxley, the author of “Brave New World,” commented on effective mind control when he said, “A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.”

Nazi, Germany, Russia, Great Britain and the United States had all been experimenting with drugs for mind control purposes. Both the CIA and Russian intelligence competed for Nazi mind control scientists after World War II. Many of these mind control scientist were deeply involved in the occult and Satanism. Psychiatric reports proposed that LSD could break down existing behavior patterns and be used in reprogramming or brainwashing. Thus, the military’s MK ULTRA program began with the help of Dr. Aldous Huxley who had contact with the Great Beast 666, Aleister Crowley.

Interestingly, years later while speaking at the U.C. Berkley in 1962, Aldous Huxley outlined his vision for the “ultimate revolution,” which is a Luciferian and scientific dictatorship where people will be conditioned to enjoy their slavery. The counter culture revolution from Britain was launched immediately afterwards. Perhaps Huxley had advance knowledge?

“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.” Aldous Huxley, Tavistock Group, California Medical School, 1961.

Aldous Huxley was the grandson of Thomas H. Huxley, a founder of the Rhodes Roundtable group and a lifelong collaborator of Arnold Toynbee, another founder of the Rhodes Roundtable group, which birthed the Council on Foreign Relations in the U.S. While at Oxford, Aldous Huxley was one of the initiates in the “Children of the Sun,” a Dionysian cult comprised of the children of Britain’s Roundtable elite.

Aldous Huxley, along with his brother Julian, was mentored at Oxford by H.G. Wells, the head of British foreign intelligence during World War I and a famous author. H.G. Wells wrote, “The Open Conspiracy: Bluprints for a World Revolution.” In the “Open Conspiracy,” Wells wrote of an elite group of men who would rule the world. Wells called his conspiracy a “one-world brain,” which functions like a “police of the mind.” H.G. Wells use of predictive programming in his popular novels (The Time MachineThe Island of Doctor Moreau, and so forth), and those of his disciples Aldous Huxley (Brave New World) and George Orwell (1984 and Animal Farm) were written as kind of religious attracts with a “mass appeal” for a one world government.

Unlike most historical figures who lose their relevancy as the years go by, Crowley’s influence is steadily increasing in the 21st century. This is not only a result of luck or natural evolution. Crowley and his O.T.O. maintained ties with high-level members of the British and American governments, as well as with influential figures in science, law and culture. The world’s elite have embraced Illuminist values, and are in perfect accord with Crowley’s Thelema –occult doctrine. These connections facilitated the mass dissemination and acceptance of his works in popular culture. Crowley did not only predict society’s abandonment of traditional religions and the embrace the Aeon of Horus; he was part of the motor that made these changes happen. The recent Olympic Ceremonies featured giant replicas of the Eye of Horus, which is the Eye of Lucifer, which is the same all-seeing eye of Satan on the back of the U.S. dollar.

The reality is that both the American culture and the global culture have been under an all-out assault by psychological warfare where the goal is to take prisoners captive and make them slaves through mind control and that is precisely what is happening now.

Now the only question to be asked is “What do we do about this all-out war by a Satanic elite who have every intention of either enslaving us or destroying us?” Don’t be deceived for a moment: that is exactly where this is going! The answer to that question sounds loud and clear in every one of our hearts. We already know that it is our duty before God to go to war spiritually and legally with the powers of darkness. Now, the only reason you might have a problem with that is, you don’t read your Bible. The Apostle Paul specifically used the words in Ephesians 6, “That our fight is not against flesh and blood…” The clearly implies that we are to be in a fight! Then further on the Apostle Paul tells us to wear the full armor of God and tells us how to wage war in the Spirit. There is absolutely no question here that the Apostle Paul is telling you that you are to be a spiritually armed soldier in the army of the Lord! Therefore it is obvious that you must now recognize that you are now enlisted and you are to follow orders!

There should be no confusion here. It was not all that long ago when the Christian churches proudly sang the hymn, “Onward Christian soldiers…marching as to war.” The church knew that it was in a spiritual war with the forces of Satan and that they were commanded to fight spiritually! Then the Apostle Paul teaches us that, “the weapons of our warfare are mighty through God.” We are to understand that we have been given the most powerful weapons in the universe and they are spiritual!

In Revelation 19, there is a description of the Lord Jesus Christ coming down from heaven with the armies of Heaven for the final battle of Armageddon where Christ, a conquering King, is going to destroy His enemies including Satan. It is imperative that you understand that you are already enlisted as a spiritual soldier in the armies of Heaven now! It is when you understand and accept that powerful truth that you will receive your marching orders. Satan or Lucifer is the temporary prince of this world. We have been given specific weapons to destroy the armies of Lucifer and to set the prisoners free.

You must understand that God is more powerful than Satan. Satan is attempting to lead a revolution against God on Earth with one third of the angels at this moment. Satan has deceived millions of men and women into serving him and that would include the Satanic elite.

But God has given you specific and strategic spiritual weapons to set people free from Luciferian mind control. Now it is very important that you listen very carefully to what I am about to say to you. The power of Satan can be broken for this nation now. This is the great secret that the powers of darkness do not want you to know! When Jesus Christ said to His disciples, “All authority has been given to Me…” Jesus Christ meant those words. In addition, Jesus Christ specifically told his followers, and that includes you and me, that He has given us that authority. That means in the power of Jesus Christ we have authority over Satan and his armies! However, unless we understand that we have that authority and use it, it will do us no good.

It is at this point all hell breaks loose in a person’s thoughts or in a conversation, because the powers of darkness will do anything to divert you from knowing and using that truth. Theological arguments are Satan’s primary tool. In addition to being an author, I am an internationally recognized expert on Bible prophecy. I am fully aware of all arguments that are used to derail that truth. Let me say in the strongest terms that I can that I am aware of what the Bible says in terms of God’s prophetic timeline. I understand thoroughly that many events have to happen before Christ rules and reigns over planet Earth from Jerusalem and Satan is sent to the Abyss. In addition, I am not even remotely suggesting that we are Christ.

Once we understand that we have been given the power to defeat our enemy, we must then use that power strategically and efficiently. This trance state over America can be broken. The grip of mind control and brainwashing can be shattered and millions can be set free! The key is to understand the spiritual and psychological nature of this warfare, as well as the strategy and organizational structure of our enemy. Once that is understood, we employ the most powerful weapons known to man in the battle. These are spiritual weapons with very practical consequences. Being trained and prepared for the use of these spiritual weapons with overwhelming force, we employ them strategically. This will result in the total penetration and annihilation of walls and barriers in another dimension. There will be an accompanying convergence of such magnitude that it will send shockwaves from another dimension into the very core of the Satanic elite. This will change the course of history. But, you will not fully understand what you have accomplished until you leave this dimension for eternity. The time is now!

You don’t have to believe in God to go to heaven, Pope Francis assures sceptics

pope-false-prophet

Here’s more lies from the Pope of the whore of Babylon, saying pretty much that anyone can go to heaven whether you believe Jesus Christ is Lord or not. God’s Word tells us there is only one way to heaven and only one name given under heaven among men whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12) and that is Jesus Christ. Catholicism is no where near true Christianity even though they say they are Christian.  It is a false teaching in the first place. Below is an article from the independent UK: 

In comments likely to enhance his progressive reputation, Pope Francis has written a long, open letter to the founder of La Repubblicanewspaper, Eugenio Scalfari, stating that non-believers would be forgiven by God if they followed their consciences.

Responding to a list of questions published in the paper by Mr Scalfari, who is not a Roman Catholic, Francis wrote: “You ask me if the God of the Christians forgives those who don’t believe and who don’t seek the faith. I start by saying – and this is the fundamental thing – that God’s mercy has no limits if you go to him with a sincere and contrite heart. The issue for those who do not believe in God is to obey their conscience.

“Sin, even for those who have no faith, exists when people disobey their conscience.”

Robert Mickens, the Vatican correspondent for the Catholic journal The Tablet, said the pontiff’s comments were further evidence of his attempts to shake off the Catholic Church’s fusty image, reinforced by his extremely conservative predecessor Benedict XVI. “Francis is a still a conservative,” said Mr Mickens. “But what this is all about is him seeking to have a more meaningful dialogue with the world.”

In a welcoming response to the letter, Mr Scalfari said the Pope’s comments were “further evidence of his ability and desire to overcome barriers in dialogue with all”.

In July, Francis signaled a more progressive attitude on sexuality, asking: “If someone is gay and is looking for the Lord, who am I to judge him?”

Archaeologists’ Claim: A Piece of Jesus Christ’s Cross Was Potentially Found

6be30ba68df370741e1ce0a6a717fbd0

Biblical archaeology offers a fascinating lens into the lives of key individuals living during Old and New Testament times. Of late, numerous items have been discovered that are heralded as offering important context to the holy book’s contents. The latest find comes from archaeologists working in Turkey who believe they may have have uncovered the most fascinating relic yet — a piece of Jesus Christ’s cross.

Did Archaeologists Just Discover a Piece of Jesus Christs Crucifixion Cross?

This particular item, found in a stone chest, was uncovered in the ruins of Balatlar Church in Sinop, Turkey, LiveScience reported. The container, found at the house of worship that was constructed in A.D. 660, is described as housing “a piece of a cross.”

“We have found a holy thing in a chest. It is a piece of a cross, and we think it was [part of the cross on which Jesus was crucified],” lead excavator Professor Gülgün Köro?lu told Hurriyet Daily News. “This stone chest is very important to us. It has a history and is the most important artifact we have unearthed so far.”

Here’s a quick video about the fascinating discovery:

Köro?l is a art historian and an archaeologist at the Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts in Turkey. She said that the chest that was found is a symbolic coffin — one that houses the relics of a person who was revered as “holy” (in this case, Jesus or a saint).

The items within the chest, described by NBC as “fragments,” are said to be associated with Christ’s crucifixion. The chest was transported to a lab, where it will be examined further.

The educator and her team have been working at the site since 2009.

The claim that this is a portion of Christ’s cross is of course controversial and will likely be debated. This isn’t the first time that scientists and archaeologists have claimed to possibly possess a piece of the coveted wooden cross on which the Christian savior was crucified.

This is the latest in a slew of Bible-era finds (read more about these archeological discoveries).
