Robert Dear is the shooter of the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado, November 27, 2015. Already many reports are going out labeling him as a Christian terrorist and right wing extremist. The religious assumption is far from the truth and this man is obviously NOT a Christian.
Not everyone who says they are Christian are Christian. Jesus said you will know them by their fruits. Going to church or going through the motions of Christianity does not make anyone a Christian. It is ridiculous to say he is a Christian. For example, my ex-husband had “Christian” on his dog tag in the Marines for 20 years but he was never a Christian. He would do the most non-Christian things you could think of including being a drunk and committing adultery throughout our relationship. He said that the reason his dog tag said he was Christian was in order to receive a Christian burial. It was to please his mother and to have a traditional funeral. Sometimes he would even go to church with us. It was for show. He wouldn’t even pay attention to the words the pastor was preaching. It went in one ear and out the other. He could care less what was being preached and did not care about the bible or what Jesus said to do. A Christian is a follower of Christ. My ex-husband was not a follower of Christ and neither is Robert Dear. Robert Dear lives like an unrepentant sinner doing what his flesh wants and does not care what Jesus said to do. There are plenty of people like Robert Dear. A good example of this is Obama. He actually says Christianity is his faith and he has morals. Everyone knows that is laughable. Christians KNOW that Obama is not a Christian and that he only SAYS he is. Just because you name the name of Christ means nothing. Who do you follow and emulate and is the bible anything to you? The bible is God’s word and is to our faith. Jesus said that man does not live on bread alone but by every word of God. It is common sense to see people’s actions and realize their words do not match what they say.
This issue is more than just Robert Dear. This is something that we need to confront as Christians and stop assuming someone is Christian because they say they are. When people say they are Christian, believe it at a temporary face value until they prove otherwise. Usually these people believe in a made-up god that has nothing to do with the true God because they will sin and live in sin and they think their god is OK with whatever they do or will forgive them for doing it as they never repent of their sins. Sometimes you see murderers say, “God told me to do it.” or “I was doing it to be a good Christian.” Jesus was not a murderer or rapist. Jesus said to love your enemies and do good to those who despise you. This is something that Christians practice and sets them apart from all other religions. We do not want people to be murdered. We do not take the position of vengeance or give people their due punishment of sin. Jesus died for all people and that includes every wicked person including witches, homosexuals, child rapists, Muslim terrorists, and abortion doctors. Jesus paid the death penalty. We are part of the New Testament, not Judaism in Israel 3000 years ago. We leave ultimate judgement of the punishment of death for sin to God. God gets the vengeance not us. The death penalty is not given by Christians for sin but by the government for crime. Christians do not desire to kill the Planned Parenthood abortion doctors. To murder the doctors is the same as to murder the babies from the womb. Christians instead pray and try to do it in a peaceful civil manner of trying to make a political influence. The stand in the matter is not killing but in praying. We know God hears us and we do make a difference. We see God at work in the matter and at the same time we realize we are in a fallen world where things are to get worse as we approach that day of the coming anti-Christ. Just like the elites and the Muslims who are creating chaos in order to bring a new world order, the Christians have been preparing spiritually to not be deceived in these end times and do not want to add to the violence.
The number of actual Christians is in reality a fraction of those professing to be Christian. There are so many cults and false denominations and people just doing their own thing believing they are pleasing the Lord with their works, traditions and Christianese talk. God does not know or call these false Christians his brethren. They have been deceived and are deceiving themselves. Jesus said that the road to life is narrow and few are on it. If there are few, the numbers that are boasted about are false. There is in actuality a small number of Christians world-wide. They are from every country and world-wide but they are not Christian in name only living in sin and living to sin. The true Christian wants to follow Jesus, to read and know His word and to worship in truth and spirit avoiding idolatry and fornication. The true Christians are not in the limelight making millions of dollars on TBN. Dear says he could do whatever they want…. that is not Christianity. That is hedonism. Occultist Aleister Crowley was famous for repeating, “Do what thou wilt”. Doing whatever we want living by the lusts of our flesh has nothing to do with following Jesus. This is far from what Jesus taught who asked us to be obedient to God and obey His commandments and to follow Him. This is the simple way you can determine if someone is Christian in name only. It isn’t rocket science to realize Robert Dear is not following Jesus.
For people to make foolish assumptions such as Robert Dear is a Christian is really very pitiful and desperate. He does not care to follow Jesus or do what He says. The Army of God cult he belonged to is just that, a religious cult. I realize the atheist and secular and false religion enthusiasts are looking for an excuse to demonize, mark and hate Christians but the reality is that their real goal is to destroy religion, Christianity and make new gun laws. They in actuality hate God and whether they realize it or not, they are being led and influenced by their spiritual father who is Satan, the father of lies and deception.
“He claims to be a Christian and is extremely evangelistic, but does not follow the Bible in his actions,” Mescher said. “He says that as long as he believes he will be saved, he can do whatever he pleases. He is obsessed with the world coming to an end.” – rawstory.com
People bring up the Crusades in complete ignorance. I want you to also know that the Baptist separate themselves from Protestantism and Roman Catholicism. The Crusades had nothing to do with our forefathers. Please see the post concerning the Baptist Trail of Blood History and How To Know If You Are A Fake Christian.
