Ann Coulter - The Fine Print - If you can find a better deal, take it!
While Ann Coulter's article entitled If You Can Find A Better Deal, Take It, on the surface appears more honest than the advice of most Christians, even she does not mention the fine print that is an integral part of the deal that she portrays as the best in the universe. While all Christians quote the words: "Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9) -- few will dare mention the fine print of the contract. But I must give Ann an "A" for honesty, in that she writes that: "Christianity is also the hardest religion in the world because, if you believe Christ died for your sins and rose from the dead, you have no choice but to give your life entirely over to Him. No more sexual promiscuity, no lying, no cheating, no stealing, no killing inconvenient old people or unborn babies – no doing what all the other kids do."
While Ann is more honest than most Christians, what she states in the above words does not at all capture the reality of the fine print that the Church hides from. Quoting the Blog article: Was Jesus God? What Jesus revealed to mankind was the means to prove the Truth by virtue of your own first-hand spiritual experiences of learning directly from God, but this was changed and corrupted by a clergy who called themselves Orthodox, who used Jesus as a pagan ritual mojo to peddle a license to live in sin. In the subheading entitled The Flawed Doctrine Of Perpetual Redemption in the article at http://TheLie.org , and the following subheading entitled Christian Apostasy, the ignored statement of Paul is explored where he writes: "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV). What this means is that the religion of Jesus in its original form was one of spiritual transformation -- and those who willfully sin, crucify the Son of God afresh, and "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." These, and other such spiritual concepts, were totally unacceptable to the heathen Church of Rome, and the scriptures were corrupted in order to make them support the doctrines of the emperor. That the Church has abandoned the original teachings of Jesus, and have ignored the facts when it is demonstrated that the Church of Rome corrupted the very words of God spoken to man (see http://TheTenWords.com ), means that until the Church itself repents of this great sin against the Holy Spirit, they will remain under a cloud of ignorance in an exile state in a Spiritual Diaspora.
What this means is that if you call upon the name of the Lord, and you then knowingly sin, you not only "...commit apostasy" and yourself "...crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt" -- but, as an apostate to the New Covenant, "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins". If we ask the question: Did Paul really mean that the sacrifice on the cross is canceled for those who knowingly sin after calling upon the name of the Lord? This is confirmed in the words of Paul when he wrote: "What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? …knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin… Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?” (Rom 6:1-16 NKJ).
With respect to Ann Coulter's words: "...No more sexual promiscuity, no lying, no cheating, no stealing, no killing inconvenient old people or unborn babies – no doing what all the other kids do." The question must be posed: Who is teaching the children a lifestyle of ungodliness? Because the Christian world has basically abandoned the very First Principles of the Gospel teachings, parents not only hand their children over to Caesar to instruct in the way of death -- but permits them to be programmed into ungodliness on the television and mass media, and openly engage in a lifestyle of spiritual abandonment. Thus, Paul also stated: "Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?" (2 Cor 6:14 NKJ) -- to the degree that Paul commanded to be separate and do not even touch their unclean ways and lifestyle: "Therefore Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty" (2 Cor 6:17-18 NKJ). And this to the degree that Paul commanded not to even dine with unbelievers who live an ungodly lifestyle in harmony with the ways of this world as seen in the words: "But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner-- not even to eat with such a person" (1 Cor 5:11 NKJ). What this means is that you can't be faithful to the Gospel that was preached by Paul, and still send your children to government schools, or permit them to have open access to the television and music of the pop culture.
While Brit Hume and Ann Coulter's advice would be excellent if Tiger Woods was sincere in his desire to change his life, if he is not, then he will inherit the greater judgment which is reserved for the complacent Christians who ignore the above warnings. This is in fact demonstrated in the words: "And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more" (Luke 12:47-48 KJV). If the person who called upon the name of the Lord follows the path of apostasy which is promoted by the majority of Churches, then they are the servants portrayed in the words: "And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. Whereas, someone such as Tiger Woods who is not a Christians, will receive less judgement, as seen in the words: "...But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes." And this fact is further clarified in the words: "...For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more".
While I believe that Brit Hume was sincere in his advice to Tiger Woods, what Church would he suggest sending him to? In the same way that from the perspective of Paul and the Gospel, the government schools are unclean and unfit for sincere Christian children to attend, so too are the Churches which promote our cultural ungodliness under the counterfeit cloak of forgiveness for a life of perpetual sin. Moreover, because the vast majority of modern Churches promote the doctrines of apostasy which was ordained under Pagan Rome, the Churches themselves are a breeding ground for what Jesus portrays as the "...greater judgement"!!! For all practical purposes, Brit Hume's advice for Tiger Woods is to jump out of the frying pan, directly into the fire. And while I have used the scriptures to prove this fact, few have the ears to hear -- and thus, they "...crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt".
While the Christian world does not understand how they can live a life apart from sin, this is because the Pagan Emperor Constantine murdered the Spiritual Christians who understood the teachings of Jesus and the Gospel with greater depth, and the Pagan Church of Rome corrupted the scriptures to make them support the doctrines of the emperor (see http://BibleCorruption.com ). The key is in the words of Pelagius who wrote that: “Man is able, if he likes, to live without sin and keep the commandments of God, in as much as God gives him this ability”. It is important to note that Pelagius does not say that man can choose to live a life apart from sin -- but rather, the God bestows upon those who are truly faithful to the Gospel teachings, the ability to live apart from sin. And the fact that for the most part, Christians live no differently than the unbelievers, is because God withholds from them the knowledge of this important ability, so long as the Church continues to promote the doctrines of apostasy and perpetual sin.
