AVOIDING....'THE ISSUES OF THE DAY'......AND THE CROSS.
came across a man by the name of Bill Muehlenberg on the
internet and I was reminded of how much shame
'professing Christians' put on themselves in order
to avoid the blessings of God/Jesus the Christ which
come by the way of persecution....ref/Hebrews 13:13.
* Bill Muehlenberg of 'Culture Watch'......runs a
small internet commentary on the 'Issues of the Day'
|Bill indirectly says in his
'search results' on his web page that he is a believer
of that pagan idea 'Luck' and lucky days, he uses this
kind of vocabulary oddly enough. Bill will do well in
the 'Lucky Country; for sure, providing he doesn't go
beyond the main-stream where all the compromisers
swim/dog paddle happily in deception, their favourite
strokes are 'Family First and
Absolute Predestination'. If he can get out of
these Mainstream polluted waters and untangle the
denominational weeds and reeds that have ensnared his
mind he may very well start to see things otherwise, in
reality/the true light, the Christ's Way.. It's
definitely think-time for Bill......click.
From the little I have read of his heart-felt
commentaries, Bill is no doubt of the 'Don't Judge
Squad' another one who hasn't the intestinal
fortitude or the holy ghost conviction to call a spade a
spade and not a great big shovel......sad isn't
It's a bit like Herbert Armstrong who wrote the
magazine - 'The Plain Truth' and never even had the
truth (not the unvarnished variety anyway)
the spirit of truth, the paraclete. Yet multitudes
followed this man's words, commentary......click.
If anyone desires to comment on Bill's Web Site, Bill
has rules for all writers......Bill likes to be in
control, edit-delete, edit-delete, delete-edit, whatever
the writer sends in, that he disapproves of that may
conflict with his mainstream-religious-common
ground-ideology.....ref/1 Peter 4:11......click.
Bill says, he doesn't like or want to be attacked, he
doesn't want rude or bad taste mail or anything
defamatory posted to him. Bill obviously doesn't like or
invite, the cross of the Christ or suffering the
reproach of the Christ outside the
'religious-hypocritical-mainstream gate, affiliation'.
All because Bill is still inside this very gate....snug,
safe and sound from all the Messianic-Blessings that
come to those who are persecuted for the Christ's name
sake....ref/Philippians 3:10, 11, Matthew 10:22.
Are Bill's values and associations
Christian?.....this is the question........click.
The sad thing is, Bill can never 'be' or grow to be a
bonafide disciple of the Christ if he stays within the
arena of the rules of his
'Religious-Cottonwool-Culture Club'. It is
obvious that Bill is afraid of having his flesh, ego and
pride hurt, dealt with by the truth. Bill needs to let
go and let God have his way.......click.

hurt me....do you really want to make me
cry"?................Boy George/Culture Club.

what 'your real heart-felt thoughts' are on this issue and all
issues/articles on the JTCM-Mission web site........none
of your words other than grammar, shall be altered,
edited or refused but will be considered in prayer,
displayed for the light to view and those of the light
to peruse, as yet another blessing of this 23 year old
A blessed man.

PS.....Email received 23.1.2011....regarding Mr. Muehlenberg's opinion/commentary on the Queensland
floods, Australia......ref/Tragedy, Justice, Grace.
Thank you for recommending the write-up of Bill
Muehlenberg, I had to read it twice. For him to say that
there is no clear voice anymore anywhere to warn us of
these events and for him to say that calling the recent
floods of Queensland an act of God's judgement is
"unhelpful" is just as you say Pastor ' a load of
slop'. This man refers to the O.T. events and can
acknowledge that the disasters were indeed God's
judgement back then, even the judgement on Ananias and
Sapphira in the N.T.
He admits that God is the same yesterday, today and
forever but then he refers to 'us, we/Christians'
supposed new creations as being in 'a fallen state'
and says that 'we can not know for sure what is God's
judgement and what is not'.....this really takes the
cake. He has forgotten that we are 'Born-Again' (even
if he's not) and that the Spirit in us witnesses to
us that these things are really from Him-Almighty
God-Jesus the Christ our God. He is sovereign and
creator and he is not mocked by any nation, race, colour
or gender......ref/Romans 8:12-17, 2 Corinthians
Pastor, again I say, we at JTCM-Mission Austtralia look
forward to you all returning from the Philippine Crusade
and assembling together again in Brisbane City under the
anointed Word. See you soon.......Sister Sue.
