|Vol. VI Number 16||April 26, 2002|
I'm sorry that I was not able to make it to church last week because I had a fever of 102° and whatever I had I did not want to spread it around. Thank-you for your prayers.
Yesterday Rita and I saw a man on Kensington Ave. who had tattoos of nude women on both arms with an upside down cross on one arm with 666 above it. When you see a person like this it is easy to distinguish what side he is on. On the news yesterday there was a report about the Chester County Court house having to cover up the ten commandments on the building. The Philadelphia Inquirer article ``Covering for 10 Commandments'' gives us several more agents of Satan. One of them is U.S. District Judge Stewart Dalzell when he ordered the covering up of the Ten Commandments on the Chester County Court House Wall. The first tattooed individual showed an outward, despicable display of his love for Satan, while the other may be a member of a main line church but his actions dictate that he is also Satan's agent. Other agents of Satan are the atheist Sally Flynn and Margaret Downey, president and founder of the Freethought Society of Greater Philadelphia, who are the ones who brought the original suit against the displaying of the Ten commandments on the court house.
Let's take a look at each of these agents of Satan and see their likes and differences. First the man with the tattoos knows who his master is. With the upside down cross and with 666 above it he knows that he is a follower of Satan. There is no deception with him for he professes his views openly. With him there is very little danger to the Christian for his open display is repugnant to both the born again Christian and most others.
The next person we will describe is U.S. District Judge Stewart Dalzell who apparently is offended by the Ten Commandments. Does thou shalt not kill bother him? Surely he is a proponent of the murder of babies before they are even born. Thus you cannot have a statement about not killing on a court house wall when you believe that the murder of the unborn is legal. Doing a google search for, "Judge Stewart Dalzell" gives a lot of information about his previous judicial decisions. He has a long history of supporting the extreme liberal and the murderer.
After hearing Lambert's appeal of her sentence, U.S. District Court Judge Stewart Dalzell overturned Lambert's conviction and barred the prosecutors from retrying her. Dalzell declared that Lambert was "actually innocent" of killing Laurie Show.
PHILADELPHIA-- In a resounding victory for First Amendment rights everywhere, a three-judge panel in federal district court in Philadelphia today struck down a law that would criminalize free speech in cyberspace.
In a 3-0 decision with three separate opinions issued by Chief Judge Dolores K. Sloviter, Judge Stewart Dalzell, and Judge Buckwalter, the court granted a motion for preliminary injunction on "indecency" provisions of the Communications Decency Act.
Judge Stewart Dalzell really believes that he is doing the will of God, and says that the Lancaster prosecuters have made a deal with Satan as quoted from, http://www.uncp.edu/home/vanderhoof/dp-news/dalzell1.html
LANCASTER -- U.S. District Judge Stewart Dalzell has left this corner of Pennsylvania stunned and bitter.
In a sweeping ruling this week, he overturned one of the county's most notorious murder cases, accused police and prosecutors of wholesale misconduct, and cast the blame in blunt terms: "In making a pact with this devil, Lancaster County made a Faustian bargain," Dalzell said. "It lost its soul."
As in any case there are various opions that can be stated depending upon the situation, and the viewpoint. The case concerning the CDA and the Internet free speech, though there are many in the Christian community who do not like the judge's ruling, it also allows them to publish their opinions. The first ammendment which covers free speech covers the speech of both the pornographer and the Christian. Though the ACLU likes to side with the most repugnant in society, freedom of speech is one of the most important liberties that the Christian has. With the way that society is going, this sermon would not be considered allowable because I am lambasting a Federal Judge.
There are many who sincerely believe that they are God's servants when actually they are the tools of Satan. Consider the lawyers in Jesus' day when they argued for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. They really believed that they were doing the will of God by asking the Roman government to execute Jesus Christ. Now we know that they were really the implements of Satan.
27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
So far we covered the ones who openly proclaim themselves to be against God, and those who really believe that they are doing God's will when actually they are the tools of Satan. The third type is the deceiver who is able to deceive the Christian while knowingly is against the Christian, and considers the Christian a fool. This one is the most dangerous to the Christian community for he has the ability to compell the Christian to believe that he is doing the will of God.
Consider the RICO statute which the designers argued that it would be used to convict the mafia. As it has turned out it is being used against the Christian community and the Christian Church. A large number of the Christian community thought that this was going to be a good law, but have found themselves dragged into court through this law. They found that they have been deceived by the architects of this statute when the designers have found a way to limit the free speech of the Christian community.
NOW v. Scheidler is the first class action lawsuit brought under RICO against anti-abortion terrorists. A federal jury in Chicago found Joe Scheidler, Operation Rescue, the Pro-Life Action League and other defendants liable for creating and operating a national network of violence designed to deny women their right to abortion.
On June 17, 1989, pro-life protesters blocked access to an abortion clinic in West Hartford, Connecticut. Police arrested some of the protesters and restored access to the clinic. The story is familiar - but here it had a different ending. The town filed suit against the protesters under a law known as the RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization) Act. West Hartford charged that the tactics of the protesters amounted to extortion and that they should be criminally liable as "racketeers." Among the defendants were leaders of Operation Rescue who had not even been present at the protest and John Spear, a writer for the Orange County Post. Spear's sole contribution to the "conspiracy" was writing an editorial condemning the brutal handling of the protesters by the police.
An ex-seminarian will make sweeping sex abuse and racketeering claims today in Missouri against the former bishop of the Palm Beach diocese and two other dioceses, employing a far-reaching federal statute most commonly known for its use in organized crime prosecutions.
The man, the third to come forward with sex abuse allegations against the ex-bishop, is charging Anthony J. O'Connell and the dioceses of Palm Beach, Knoxville, Tenn., and Jefferson City, Mo., of falling under racketeering laws in their cover up of sexual abuse cases, according to Pat Noaker, one of the team of Minnesota attorneys representing the alleged victim.
June, 1986 - Complaint filed by the National Organization for Women and two abortion clinics in Federal Court in Delaware alleging violations of the Sherman-Clayton anti-trust laws, against Joseph Scheidler, Pro-Life Action League, John Ryan, Pro-life Direct Action League and Joan Andrews. The case was later transferred to Chicago and Joan Andrews was dropped from the list of defendants. NOW alleged that the defendants interfered with interstate commerce in their attempts to shut down abortion clinics. Attorneys for the plaintiffs were Morris Dees and the Southern Poverty Law Center. Attorneys for the defendants were Americans United for Life Legal Defense Fund. AUL soon arranged for anti-trust lawyer, Thomas Brejcha, to work with them on the case since they had no experience with anti-trust law. The Southern Poverty Law Center conducted depositions of all the defendants and several other pro-life activists. The Southern Poverty Law Center pulled out of the case in 1988. NOW lawyer, Patricia Ireland and associate in Chicago, Fay Clayton, took over for the plaintiffs. At NOW’s request, the court issued an order forcing the Pro-Life Action League to turn over all financial records, correspondence and thousands of pages of information from their files, as well as all video and audio tapes on file at their offices.
There are many other laws on the books that have been written to thwart the Christian community. Now your freedom of speech to protest against Planned Parenthood has been revoked and the Christian is not even allowed to hand out tracts in front of an Abortion Clinic. The whittling away of your freedom of speech is intentional by the forces who are deceiving you. The RICO statute was sold to you as a tool to fight organized crime, but it has been used to fight the Christian community.
The deception is so deep and deceptive that many believe that those who say they are fighting for Christian principles are using those very laws to destroy the Christian community.
2 Timothy 3:1-5
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
1 John 2:15-22
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
2 John 1:1-10
1 The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;
2 For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.
3 Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
