    The Church In Same-Sex America

    The Church mourns while the Synagogue rejoices.

    Thirteen Jewish Groups including the American Jewish Committee and the Anti Defamation League applauded the Supreme Court for forcing same-sex pseudo-marriages down our throats.

    From start to finish, it was Jewry pushing it through.

    Now, why are Jews celebrating and Orthodox Christians mourning?

    Because the core of stable civilization is rooted in the natural family of father-mother-children.

    Destroy the family and a Christian acculturation of society springing from the family is deprived of the soil from which it springs.

    Jewish lesbian, Masha Gessen, leads the attack.

    [Clip: “I um, I agree. It’s a no brainer that we should have the right to marry. But I also think equally that it’s a no brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist.

    So uh [applause] that the institution of marriage is going to change and it should change.

    I have three kids who have five parents more or less, uh, [chuckles] and I don’t see why they shouldn’t have five parents legally.

    I don’t see why we should choose two of those parents and make them into a sanctioned couple.”]

    The Gentile family is disintegrating.

    Yet as much as Gessen wants to destroy marriage, Jewish families thrive.

    It’s in the blood.

    Jews see themselves as a race. And its perpetuity, solidarity, and influence is dependent on the Jewish family. That will never go away. It’s stronger than ever.

    Where does this leave the Orthodox Church?

    It has no effect on Her polity and practice.

    Marriage is a sacrament by which a male and female are blessed by the priest to pursue marriage as a path of salvation through sacrifice to one another, to their children, and service to the Church.

    This union of male and female is a sacred image.

    For the Scriptures teach that Christ is the head of the Church just as a man is the head of the wife.

    The distinction of sex remains intact regardless of Jewish redefinitions of gender roles for Gentile consumption.

    Jenner’s just a pawn. Once he’s played out he’ll be thrown to the transgender trash heap.

    The Church has lived through Roman paganism, now it must live through Babylon.

    Will Gessen and friends revoke the Church’s tax-exempt status for not performing same-sex civil unions? That’s coming.

    Will the Church be criminalized as an enemy of the state?

    That’s coming too. For sodomy, which the Church opposes, has been enshrined into law.

    Our martyrdom has only just begun.

    But the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.

    Sodom and Gomorrah.

    Is that now the U.S.A. and any other country that follows suit? Decidedly.

    Brother Nathanael states: ‘Will Gessen and friends revoke the Church’s tax-exempt status for not performing same-sex civil unions? That’s coming.
    Will the Church be criminalized as an enemy of the state?’

    The true church of the Lord Jesus Christ that is a Spiritual organism, the true people of the Living God, the Body of which Christ is the Head, that new race and generation, and the true Israel of God - Never Will.

    The supposed ‘Church’ that is in Babylon will show her true colors more than ever. She loves her worldliness and worldly wealth more than she loves Christ.

    The Tax exemptions are crucial - such a falsity of Christendom.

    She would despise the gospel which is this: ‘The grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all people,
    ‘Instructing us, to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly and righteously and godly in this present world,
    ‘Looking for the blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of the great God and our Savior, Jesus Christ.’

    The American Dream has dissipated, as in view of the above verses, indeed it should.

    The early Christians in the book of Revelation faced much martyrdom, fierce and cruel persecution, loss of home, family and income including exile by order of the Caesar or through desire to escape to safety.

    Many would rather face death than deny their Lord or His gospel.

    Will this be the case of many a Pastor and a Church in the face of legalized Gay Marriage and all of the other sexual perversions that are sure to follow?

    Kabbalah keepers will ensure such.

    The cries of the martyrs of the first generation of believers in Christ, were loud and strong from under the Altar.

    They cried to God for vengeance and yearning for a speedy answer was theirs.

    They were bidden to wait until the ‘full number of the martyrs’ was realised.

    Will Pastors and Churches follow suit? Or are they so entrapped in their delusions of grandeur about their ‘fellows, the Jews’ they will fail to see the truth.

    They indeed should be counted among the number of their persecuted and martyred ‘fellow believers in Christ’ and remove the fallacy about a people who are not the people of God.

    To lose a crown of glory for such a myth as they hold about the End Times and the book of Revelation would be to their eternal weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.

    Far better to repent of their bewitched condition and follow Christ in the ways of just and righteous men and women of God.

    See such an example of endurance, perseverance and faith that abounds in the eleventh of Hebrews and the Scriptures emphasize that they were people ‘of whom this world was not worthy’.

    Pray God there are many who will ‘Come out of her’ - those Babylonian churches - and prove worthy of a future crown of glory.

    Biblical marriage has always been about joining the flesh of one man and one woman.

    If churches say no to same sex marriage, they might also have to avoid performing any type of marriage ceremonies to avoid being penalized.

    Good on you, Bro!

  10. R A FEIBEL July 14, 2015 @ 5:37 am

    I agree with you, Bro, that the family is the basis of the moral code.

    But not just the Christians. The Talmudic interpretation has destroyed the moral coed of “All” America, and I would add the world.

    I’m retired and spend my afternoons walking the malls of the US and to see what society is doing. It is way to extensive and degrading to go into detail here.

    All I can say, Bro, is you have your work cut out, for if you think you can turn these propagandized fools called American citizens’ heads from their devices they are constantly looking at.

    Talk to some of these fools as I do and you might want to go back to the Rockies and hid from the freaks we call our citizens. They haven’t a clue as to any moral code of any kind, and this idea that the Christian church in all its forms is doing good work, you would be sorely mistaken.

    The Jew has won by using hedonism and greed and gluttony to distract them and send them on the path to degradation.

  11. Kalif July 14, 2015 @ 5:43 am

    There are instances when the bullet talks more eloquently.

    Pro-Gay are invariably 100% pro-abortion who consider a foetus not as a divine conception but merely as a woman’s tissue.

    They also harbor an hedonistic approach to life where nothing sacred should stand on their way to a life of debauchery.

    Such people should not be trusted.

    Excellent timing with having thunder in the background as you speak.

    Awhile back, lightning struck the dome at Saint Peter’s in the Vatican. With construction taking place on the Capitol dome in WDC, let’s see if a summer storm brings multiple lightning strikes there.

    Or can you imagine lightning hitting the Supreme Court building?

    Just thinking out loud….

    What a hideous little Ork this Masha Gessen creature is.

    I’m afraid to look at her too long, as I might just turn to stone.

    God save America from these perverted Kosher curs.

  15. KathJuliane July 14, 2015 @ 9:58 am

    Dear +BN

    Very powerful and eloquent Video, and it is certain that the Holy Spirit was working overtime on this one.

    Indeed, the Church is in for dark and stormy times, and “Nature and Nature’s God” was certainly underscoring your points with that stormy rolling thunder in the background. Amazing!

    Masha Gessen, born in Russia of two Ashkenazi Jewis parents, beyond the merely physical, what a truly repulsive creature spiritually, mentally and emotionally.

    Looking at and listening to her, I feel like I’ve been slimed.

    The demonic corruption really comes out in her face and body, and just shows what a life-time of irresponsible lesbian conduct and and sodomite mentality can do to someone.

    I found her complete description of her bizarre, dysfunctional, and deviant family situation. Her own words convict her:

    “I don’t see why we should choose two of those parents and make them into a sanctioned couple. And because between those five parents we have two groups with two different relationships. Two groups of three.

    [Hmmm, 5 people, two groups of three. Bad math? Nope. Narcissistic Masha is the pivotal demented Jewish goddess of both groups.]

    Gessen — I got married in Massachusetts to my partner who is Russian. My ex-partner. And by that time we had two kids, one of whom is adopted and one of whom I gave birth to.

    We broke up a couple of years after that. And a couple of years after that, I met my new partner, and she has just had a baby. And that baby’s biological father is my brother.(!)

    And my daughter’s biological father is a man who lives in Russia. And my adopted son also considers him his father.

    So, um, so the five parents break down into two groups of three who have two different relationships.

    And really, um, I’d like to live in a legal system that pref–that’s capable of reflecting that reality. And I don’t think that’s compatible with the institution of marriage.”
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJrmBocx0o4

    Having come from a broken home with step-parents, half-siblings, and shuttling back and forth between parental homes and other relatives, I feel strongly for the innocent children of this impossible mess. As tough as it was growing up, at least I knew that I had a mother and a father, and that I was conceived in love, even if their marriage turned sour later.

    Gessesn’ brood will grow up very confused, insecure, and psychologically damaged because Gessen, the crazy maker, has an insatiable, destructive need to rearrange the world in order match her inner chaos.

    Nevertheless, she makes clear that the object of sodomite pseudo-marriage is not “equality” but the destruction of divinely blessed, authentic marriage between a man and a woman.

    By the way, sodomites have always had the legal right to marry–someone of the opposite sex, and many did through the centuries.

    God bless you, dear +BN, and thank you for this masterpiece. I expect to be able to make another donation this month.

    Ruth Institute: Court Decision Will Renew Campaign for Marriage

    Posted on Wednesday, July 01, 2015

    by Jennifer Roback Morse

    The long-awaited US Supreme Court ruling on the definition of marriage is as bad as we had feared.

    The Obergefell ruling will have harmful long-term effects on the family, the church, self-government and society. Each one of the four dissenters wrote his own opinion, to distance himself from a decision that will surely rank as disgraceful in the history of American jurisprudence.

    I have only one point of disagreement with the general consensus: I do not think this needs to be a disaster for the Church. In fact, I believe this could be our finest hour.

    Just how harmful is this ruling? How did we end up in this predicament? And is there any way forward to healing this culture in a lasting and Christ-like way?

    How the Ruling is Harmful

    The Court’s cavalier disrespect for the rights of children is its most striking feature. Redefining marriage redefines parenthood. Up until now, marriage has been the primary institutional structure that attaches mothers and fathers to each other, and to their children.

    With Obergefell, this historic social purpose of marriage has come to an end. Nothing remains of marriage in Justice Kennedy’s telling but a government registry of friendships. Of course, no one truly needs a government registry of friendships. We will soon hear calls to abolish even this vestigial form of marriage.

    So how will society attach children to adults, in the post-Obergefell world?

    Parenthood will no longer be considered a natural reality to be recorded by the government, but a creation of the State for the benefit of adults.

    Some children will have a legally recognized right to know both of their parents. Other children will be blocked by the State from knowing both parents.

    Some children will have three or more people named as parents on their birth certificates.

    People related to the child neither through birth nor adoption will demand parental rights. Family courts will adjudicate these disputes on a case-by-case basis, using subjective criteria.

    Parenthood by contract among Intended Parents will become legally enforceable by the states.

    Third Party Reproduction will continue unregulated and unabated. By the time the general public figures out that this is a form of human trafficking, baby-selling and a human rights abuse, it will be so entrenched that it will be difficult to root out.

    We can extrapolate from 45 years of experience with divorce and unlimited remarriage to see that these “alternative family forms” will be harmful to children. As my colleague Jennifer Johnson memorably put it, “I had five parents and it sucked.”

    I was especially disturbed to see that even the dissenters do not give children’s rights the attention they deserve.

    Justice Thomas came close to the mark by saying that the government does not bestow dignity on anyone: the government recognizes the dignity that is inherent in each and every human being.

    Justice Alito comes close by saying that marriage does have a legitimate procreative purpose, while criticizing the majority for saying “the fundamental purpose of marriage is to promote the well-being of those who choose to marry.”

    But even this is a far cry from a robust analysis of the rights and needs of children.

    The Justices could have known about this issue. I told them about it in my amicus brief. So did Robert Oscar Lopez and his colleagues here and here. So did David Upham and the Thomas More Society.

    How Did We Get Into this Situation?

    We have ended up in this situation because we accepted the idea that the needs of children can be set aside for the benefit of adults.

    The no-fault divorce revolution taught us that marriage need not be either permanent or sexually exclusive.

    The contraceptive ideology taught us to believe that we are entitled to act as if we have perfectly functioning contraception, and hence treat sex as a recreational activity with no moral or social significance.

    We are free to dispose of babies we don’t want. We have no obligation to form a lasting partnership with our child’s other parent.

    Justice Kennedy gave a perfunctory nod to the children of same-sex parents.

    I think these children have something significant in common with the children of earlier rounds of the Sexual Revolution: their parents have decided that their relationship with their sex partner is more important than their relationship with their child’s other parent.

    The same-sex couple decides this before the child is born. The divorced and remarried parent decides this when they find a new love-interest.

    The Sexual Revolution has set aside the interests of children for the benefit of adults, from the beginning. We have ended up in this situation because too many of us coasted along with the earlier phases of the Sexual Revolution.

    The Sexual Revolution has three main claims:

    –A good society should separate sex from childbearing.

    –A good society should separate both sex and childbearing from marriage.

    –Men and women are completely interchangeable. Any differences we observe between men and women are evidence of some socially constructed injustice.

    The problem is that all three of these claims are false. Sex actually does make babies. Children actually do need, and deserve, a relationship with both of their parents. Gendered marriage is the institution that delivers these entitlements to children.

    Men and women are different, in countless ways, large and small, that cannot all be overridden with cultural software or technological hardware.

    Implementing this fantasy ideology throughout society requires an enormous amount of force and propaganda.

    Thus, the further cultural fall-out from the Obergefell ruling will include:

    –Greater public promotion of transgenderism and other forms of gender fluidity

    –Relentless streams of advertising and entertainment media depicting same-sex couples in idealized terms

    –Continual suppression of any negative information about same-sex “marriage,” same-sex parenting or homosexual practice

    –More assaults on the freedom of speech and dissent, as well as assaults on religious liberty

    We are in this situation because so few people saw the Sexual Revolution for the totalitarian movement that it was and continues to be. The Elites are implementing what Alpha Males have wanted from time immemorial: unlimited sexual activity on their own terms. And they have convinced people that this is freedom.

    More importantly, we are in this situation because our society misunderstands the needs of children for stability and identity. Obergefell commits the whole society to the position that children have no rights to a relationship with their own parents, no right to know their identities.

    The State will side with the adults and their desires, rather than with children and their rights.

    On the Plus Side

    You may wonder how I could possibly see anything positive in our current situation. I have been writing and speaking about these issues since 2008. I’ve written articles, given lectures, been on countless radio programs and created books, pamphlets, CD’s and DVD’s. I have to ask myself: why aren’t people listening?

    The natural constituency for sexual common sense has been decimated by the political brawls of the past decade. Good and decent people have done their best to hang on, but feel embattled. We need to rebuild that constituency.

    We have allowed many features of the Sexual Revolution to go by without sufficient challenge. It is almost as if we have said, “We like the Sexual Revolution fine, just not the gay parts.”

    This is no longer acceptable. It never was acceptable.

    The truth is that every family in America has been harmed by the Sexual Revolution. People have been victimized by family members: children of divorce and reluctantly divorced persons are truly victims.

    Many people have done foolish and hurtful things, because they believed the lies our culture routinely tells. How many people would have gotten divorced, for instance, if they had known how difficult it would be for their children?

    How many educated and accomplished women would have made different choices, if they had realized how painful childlessness would prove to be?

    All this means that many people have broken hearts or guilty consciences. When we try to talk about traditional sexual ethics, we are unwittingly poking their wounds. And when we try to talk about separation of powers or judicial tyranny or religious liberty or children’s rights, we completely lose them.

    The public policy arena is perhaps not the best ground on which to try to fight the battle for marriage. And in any case, our prospects for success in this arena are now quite limited, at least for the foreseeable future.

    Healing the Culture in a Lasting and Christ-like Way

    The millions of people have been harmed by the Sexual Revolution are NOT our enemies. These people’s voices have been systematically suppressed to protect the toxic ideology of the Sexual Revolution.

    We should not view ourselves as fighting with these people, but for these people. Give them an opportunity to speak their truth, which they often cannot speak, even inside their own families.

    We must address broken hearts and guilty consciences. Unlike many of our legal and political struggles, everyone can participate by becoming an agent for healing.

    You don’t need a degree from an Ivy League university or your own TV show.

    You don’t need the permission of the Supreme Court or Congress.

    You can begin, right now, today, reaching out in friendship and support to those who have been harmed, including people who don’t vote the way you vote or worship the way you worship.

    I strongly suggest that you begin by examining your own conscience. Clear out whatever buried sins or wounds or un-forgiveness you may be carrying around.

    Your own cleansing will prepare you to be available for those around you who need your help.

    Pointing fingers of blame at people who already have a guilty conscience will be worse than useless. But we can go first, with genuine repentance for our own wrong-doing and forgiveness for others.

    Let me be as clear as possible. If you need to make amends to your children, your spouse, an ex-spouse or your parents, now would be a good time to do it. If enough of us do this, we will have a real chance of healing this culture in a lasting and Christ-like way, which is the only way worth doing.

    Political and legal struggles have winners and losers. Cultural engagement need not. True spiritual combat recognizes that when Jesus wins, everyone wins. When the devil wins, everyone loses.


    We will reveal our true character by the way we conduct ourselves in a time of crisis. Let this be Our Finest Hour.

    Gessen is also a Russophobic Jew propagandist who wrote a smear “biography” of Putin (”The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin”), as well as a book defending Pussy Riot.

    Her hate for everything White, Russian, Christian, or wholesome is palpable.

    Look at that wicked troll. God made evil easy to see. But none are so blind as those who will not see.

  18. Luke July 14, 2015 @ 10:37 am

    1 Timothy 6:10 KJVS
    [10] For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

    Luke 16:13 KJVS
    [13] No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

    The apostasy of many of today’s large denominational Christians churches in the United States are largely due to their being subsidized by a estimated 71 billion dollars from local Federal and State governments due to their tax exempt status.

    Religion is big business and the doctrines these churches embrace are often due to monetary considerations rather than the welfare of the flock. At some point in the near future these flocks of sheep will be further led astray to their destruction.

    2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 KJVS

    [9] Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, [10] And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. [11] And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: [12] That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    Just giving you my moral support, Brother.

    I did a quick Wiki search on “marriage”. I won’t quote anything because it looks like the content of those pages is changing daily.

    What gave/gives the government the authority to marry anyone?

    I think they should be out of the marriage business entirely. And, there should be no discrimination (advantage or disadvantage) offered/imposed by the government one way or another. Thus, a marriage is a personal commitment of loyalty.

    From a contractual perspective, if a contract is what the participants willingly choose to enter into, then it is just that, a private contract between parties. Again, the government has no authority.

    Lastly, I too believe marriage to be a union brought about by the hand of God, and a sacred oath made before God to honor each other, and honor this commitment, and honor the hand of God.

    The government needs to get out of the marriage business…they have no more authority to bind than they do to dissolve.

  20. KathJuliane July 14, 2015 @ 11:43 am

    @Luke

    You have it backwards.

    The fact that the churches and religious organizations (along with numerous other forms of charitable, educational, social, cultural, and health/medical non-profit organizations) don’t pay income taxes doesn’t mean that the federal or state governments somehow “subsidize them.”

    A subsidy is:

    1. a direct pecuniary aid furnished by a government to a private industrial undertaking, a charity organization, or the like.

    2. a sum paid, often in accordance with a treaty, by one government to another to secure some service in return.

    3.a grant or contribution of money.

    4.money formerly granted by the English Parliament to the crown for special needs.

    If you don’t pay taxes because of lawful income tax deductions, or you get a refund, the government is not subsidizing you.

    Apart from the prosperity gospel junk religion of the enormously wealthy Judaizing televangelist brahmins, a great deal of that 71 billion dollars that you quote for the most part goes towards missionary work, church charitable organizations, hospitals, juvenile and elder care, hospices and rest homes, schools and education, humanitarian and disaster relief efforts, etc.

    The Catholic Church, Church of England, Lutheran Church, etc are/were all state establishment churches at one time or another. They were subsidized with public taxes.

    The Church of England, with the King or Queen as its head is the establishment church, and mandatory religious taxes to subsidize it must be paid to the state by those who were born into the COE, even if they are atheists. At least it was so a few years ago. In any case, this was an additional public tax on top of donations, tithes, internal ecclesiastical taxes that a COE congregant would be obligated to.

    I believe, but may be wrong on this, that Catholic Church in England has a similar establishment status with the British Crown because of Ireland and a fair number of English Catholics, and receives state religious taxes as well.

    And, throughout Europe as well, depending on the Vatican’s long-standing concordants with the various governments about its rights, privileges also collects mandatory taxes, and/or receives religious tax revenues and other subsidies from the state as well.

    Here in America since after the War for Independence and written into the Constitution, there has not been a state supported Establishment Church, and state mandated religious taxes going towards subsidizing denominational churches.

    However, during George W Bush’s administration, his Faith-Based and Community Initiative was clear - “to enable faith-based and community organizations to provide compassionate care for the poor by receiving Federal grants on the same basis as other groups,” and not to support “inherently religious activities.”

    President Bush believed that it is wrong for these groups to be discriminated against when it comes to partnering with the Federal government.

    The United States Supreme Court has said that faith-based organizations may not use direct government support to support “inherently religious” activities.No part of a direct Federal grant could be used to fund religious worship, instruction, or proselytization.

    Instead, organizations may use government money only to support the non-religious social services that they provide.

    Therefore, faith-based organizations that receive direct governmental funds had to take steps to separate, in time or location, their inherently religious activities from the government-funded services that they offer. Such organizations had to carefully account for their use of all government money.

    This didn’t mean a church or religious organization couldn’t have religious activities. It simply meant they can’t use taxpayer dollars to fund them.

    Some faith-based organizations set up separate charitable organizations (so-called “501(c)(3) corporations”) to keep programs that receive government money separate from those that engage in inherently religious activities.

    As for apostasy? Apostasy (Greek: apostasia, “a defection or revolt”) is the formal disaffiliation from, or abandonment or renunciation of a religion by a person.

    It can also be defined within the broader context of embracing an opinion contrary to one’s previous beliefs.

    So, your claim that “the apostasy of many of today’s large denominational Christians churches in the United States are largely due to their being subsidized by a estimated 71 billion dollars from local Federal and State governments due to their tax exempt status” is quite erroneous.

    Just for your information, Church tax-exemption is nothing new.

    As far back as Emperor Constantine the Great in the Byzantine Roman Empire, the Orthodox Church was granted tax-exempt status in order to receive donations, endowments and benefices in order to carry out her extensive and ongoing religious and charitable work throughout the provinces. The Church sometimes also received grants directly from the state.

    The Church’s social operations were often conducted through the monasteries, which included hospitals, surgeries, pharmacies and medical care (comparable to 19th and early 20th century hospital and medical care), public bath operations, hospices, poor houses, orphanages, guilds, compulsory public primary education (for both boys and girls), burial of the dead, epidemic, famine and war relief, and paying ransom for enslaved Christians, to name a few of the Church’s many social responsibilities and operations.

    CBN: Children of Gay Couples Oppose Same-Sex Marriage

    Daughter of Lesbians Opposes Same-Sex Marriage. One key part of today’s Supreme Court debate centers on whether sanctioning gay marriage is fair to the children who would then be raised by same-sex couples.

    To Irene Bonney Faulkes, and all others of like precious faith: Bravo! Well-written and to the point.

    The true Body of Christ, called without the camp, and separated from Babylon, will embrace her calling with joyous thanksgiving, even death, since all true followers of Yeshua are “…willing rather to be absent from the body [of flesh], and to be present with the Lord.” (2 Cor 5:8).

    To KathJuliane

    In your retort to Luke about having it backwards:

    If so-called Christian churches raise money beyond their expenses and pay no tax, then in that mentality it is also fitting for a corporation who dodge the tax man to not pay any tax and even worse is having local/city/county/state governments allowing tax-free status for corporations moving into their jurisdiction to stimulate growth.

    All lies and theft from the people. Why should the public have to pay higher taxes because of these criminal tax free zones?

    There is a church so wealthy in Barrington, IL, that has professional Wall Street consultants who are on staff 24/7 to invest and play the Wall Street game. They are paid handsomely. Is that part of Christianity? I think not.

  27. chestergimli July 15, 2015 @ 8:08 am

    KathJuliane,

    I really appreciated your above comment from the Ruth Institute.

    What this lady says is correct.

    I just wanted to add that men, women, and children should dress modestly.

    I wonder how people of today would feel if Our Lord Jesus showed up tomorrow and found our young ladies in skimpy bikinis?

    They would run and hide. I know I would.

    One of Brother Nathanael’s favorite Subjects.

    What a creep Redstone is. Looks like he won’t be around much longer anyway.

    Thank you Brother for all you do. Sent small donation yesterday, cant afford much but when I can I will think of you.

    Fr. Sergei Sveshnikov

    Study Notes: On the Sacramental Nature of Marriage

    One of the obvious differences between the Orthodox and Western understanding of marriage is that in the West, marriage is what two people do, while in the East, it is something that is done to them.

    This difference is expressed in the wedding service. In the West, the two people give a set of vows, thus entering into a contract with each other.

    In the Orthodox service, no vows are exchanged; after the initial inquiry as to whether they want to be married to each other (more on that later), they say absolutely nothing.

    They also do nothing: something is done to them–crowns are placed on their heads, they are led by the priest around the gospel stand, the common cup is given to them, even their wedding rings are placed on their fingers by other people.

    Whatever the historical development of the Orthodox rite may have been, its form points to the belief in the sacramental nature of marriage. In this way, the rite of marriage similar to the Eucharist.

    One does not produce the Body and Blood of Christ the way that one would negotiate and produce a contract.

    All of the actions of the priest and the congregation are not aimed at the production of the Gifts, but at preparing their own hearts and souls for receiving the sacrament.

    But when we speak of the sacramental nature of marriage, I think that we have mean some specific thing.

    Marriage is not a sacrament because it is listed as such in the catechism; and it is not a sacrament because God blesses the couple in some general way.

    One of the ways we can define a sacrament to be more precise for the purposes of this study is to look at it as transformation: it is not quantitative (whereby vows, blessings, certificates, etc. are added to the couple) but qualitative–the couple does not remain the same two people they were before the weddings but is transformed (“changing them by Your Holy Spirit” in the Eucharistic sense) into something they were not–a specific icon of Christ and His Church.

    Here is a two-part talk by Robert Reilly who wrote book, Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior Is Changing Everything.

    http://www.instituteofcatholicculture.org/unlawful-union-how-gay-marriage-has-conquered-america/

    Video 1 = need to skip about the first five minutes to place where Mr. Reilly begins speaking.

    This talk was very excellent in many ways but I think that two very important related subjects were deliberately omitted and that is not good.

    Mr. Reilly was said to be going to tell us “Where has the “gay rights” movement come from, and how has it so easily conquered America”

    Mr. Reilly did not do that, in my opinion because he failed to tell us what Brother Nathaniel did tell us, that is:

    “The Church mourns while the Synagogue rejoices.

    Thirteen Jewish Groups including the American Jewish Committee and the Anti Defamation League applauded the Supreme Court for forcing same-sex pseudo-marriages down our throats.

    From start to finish, it was Jewry pushing it through. ”

    Jewry has been destroying the Western culture for centruies and the destruction in the USA did not only begin in the sixties with the Cutural Marxists’ “sexual revolution.”

    The second point that Mr. Reilly seems to gloss over or not mention at all is the in Catholic theology, there should be no such thing as “separation of Church and state.” There has to be someone keeping “checks and balances” on the people and policies that run our government.

    So America was not founded as a Christian nation and the “Constitution” and individual “rights and freedoms and liberties” are not the God of Christians. We take up our cross daily and be not conformed to this wicked world system.

    As far at the talk about tax exemptions. That is all this world political evil. The Church should immediately drop its 501c3 exemption. That exemption, enacted in 1954 in the US, is the hammer distorting the preaching and teaching of the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

    We in the USA are in a huge mess indeed regarding marriage, family and children and things are going to get much much worse from here on out.

    We have a loving merciful God who will provide all of our true needs but we must amend our lives and start taking every thought, word and deed captive to Christ.

    Drop out of this Satanic world system in every way you can. Human relationships can be a false god and we have to concentrate on living right and doing right — right now.

    Blessings, Bro Nathanael,

    Don’t forget the protocols of the Elders of Zion. Surely you have checked it out.

    They specifically mention and target - WHITE “Gentile - Dogs, donkeys, cattle, etc., people.

    How can this be? And Why? OH MY Just a coincidence!

    Enough said.

    It’s what is warned of in Revelation 2 and 3, the Synagogue of Satan also known as the tares!

    They are Satan’s kiddos — his spiritual seed! His little minions want to remove all morals and absolutes from societies (globally).

    The King warned of these offspring and wanted His followers to be able to recognize them, and to not be fully subject to their usury and other diabolical and financial pit falls!

    The reason church is failing, is because they let these Sons of Satan into their houses of worship, and thereby defiling the WORD to mean something entirely different. In other words, the church doesn’t realize (who) the real enemy is!
