"And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force."
The root word of violence is violate. To violate is "to take away, interfere with, or ignore (something, such as a person's rights or privacy) in an unfair or illegal way."
Despite what we have been taught, violence does not always imply the use of physical weapons such as guns, knives, bombs, or clubs. It is possible to be violent simply by using words.
Our nation, once purposed to be modeled after God's Kingdom, has been stolen from us. We have been violated, not with physical weapons, but by the use of words, laws, ridicule, and indoctrination.
There are two spiritual kingdoms: the kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of light. They are in an eternal struggle for dominance in the natural world. Most people are oblivious to this battle.
Let me stop right here a second. I know what many of you are thinking…that this natural world is beyond redemption. Part of me tends to agree with that position…that we are about to get what we deserve. Most of the American church has chosen to hide and wait. But the other part of me causes me to follow the command of my Father to "Occupy until I return." Our choices today seem to be fight or flight. Occupy is an action verb.
Militant is another one of those words that scares Christians because it is manly. We tend to believe that "love" is the greatest weapon…and it is…but "loving" people while they rob you blind borders on insanity. Real men defend things.
"Militant" is defined as "having or showing a desire or willingness to use strong, extreme, and sometimes forceful methods to achieve something."
Military: "of or relating to ground or sometimes ground and air forces." It is time to man-up Brothers.
Like it or not, God has armed forces and "the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds." Spiritually-armed, masculine Christians fight a natural war with "spiritual weaponry."
But Christians have bought a lie. We have swallowed the bait that Christians are not supposed to be aggressive…forceful…warriors. The idea that we are in the world but we are not OF the world doesn't mean we are not to fight. Christians are instructed to bring spiritual weapons to the battle. Spiritual weapons can be violent…they tear down, penetrate, uproot. Those are aggressive, war-like words.
Christians are losing the culture war. Every institution in America is now under the control of those who hate God. Our public schools, government, universities, entertainment, legal, media, political parties, and churches are under the control of the kingdom of darkness.
How has this happened? The kingdom of darkness does its work in the dark. They have seized every one of our institutions without firing a shot. They have used their weapons of lies and deceit to violate and destroy all that is good. They have invaded every Godly institution, bombarded us with lies, and stolen the future of our children and grandchildren.
They have been militant. As a result, we have been violated. They have taken from our children what was rightfully theirs. The Kingdom of God has suffered violence. It is time to drop the sissified Gospel and reinvigorate the masculine side of our faith.
Let's face it. There is absolutely no institution in modern America that Christianity has controlling influence over.
They slaughter unborn babies and force us to pay for it. They sell their little body-parts for personal gain. The command you to bake homo-cakes and demand you violate your conscience.
American Christianity will lead you to Heaven while it lets the world go to hell.
The haters of God have become emboldened. They have no conscience, no mercy, and no remorse. They get caught selling baby parts and become outraged at the one who made the film for doing it "secretly." Everything our opponents do is rooted in deceit.
Christians must become more focused…more aggressive with our faith if we are to save Western Civilization. The idea that one can win by surrendering is a doctrine of demons that has infiltrated the American Christian mindset.
"Have nothing to do with the unfruitful works of darkness but rather expose them." Sadly, for the most part, we are taught to embrace, encourage, and love those who practice such fruitless acts. Abortion is the destruction of fruit. Divorce destroys fruit. Homosexuality is fruitless. God hates them all.
I know this will cause some of you to gasp, but Paul, in Romans 1, speaking on behalf of Jesus, warned us that those who practice such things "are worthy of death." But he didn't just point the proverbial finger at the one who engages in the act, but also to those who "take pleasure" in those who do it.
Evil is real and some people are evil. It is time we faced up to it. Loving the sinner and hating the sin hasn't worked. That was Gandhi's suggestion, not our Lord's. Loving sinners more than we hate their sin validates our own shortcomings. Jesus called us to "be perfect," not "love the sinner."
People are flocking to Donald Trump because he is violent and militant in his language. The church needs some militant, violent, Christian Donald Trumps. It is time to man-up.

Yes, your tax dollars are going to arm, train, and feed neo-Nazis in Ukraine. That’s what we bought into when Washington decided to launch a regime change operationin that bedraggled corner of southeastern Europe. Your money is also going to prop up the country’s war-stricken economy – albeit not before corrupt government officials rake their cut off the top.
Dmytro Korchynsky, who heads a group of several far-right “volunteers” gathered together in “St. Mary’s Battalion,” declares his goal of organizing a “Christian Taliban” that will put Ukraine in the forefront of an effort to “lead the crusades,” adding: “ Our mission is not only to kick out the occupiers, but also revenge. Moscow must burn.”
That’s a goal American neocons and their liberal enablers can get behind, but Korchynsky’s invocation of the Taliban ought to make the rest of us step back from that precipice. For it was the US, in the throes of the last cold war, that coalesced, funded, trained, and armed what later became the Afghan Taliban – and we all know where that road led.
Once again, in our endless search for foreign monsters to destroy, we’re creating yet more foreign monsters who will provide the next excuse for future crusades. It’s a perpetual motion machine of foreign policy madness – and the War Party likes it that way.

In filing suit against the City and County of San Francisco and the four police officers accused of intimidating Emmerich, Rutherford attorneys point out that the officers had no lawful or probable cause to arrest, detain, or seize Emmerich. Attorney Michael Millen of Los Gatos, Calif., is assisting The Rutherford Institute in its defense of Gino Emmerich’s First Amendment rights.

In other words, in the American police state, “we the people” are at the mercy of law enforcement officers who have almost absolute discretion to decide who is a threat, what constitutes resistance, and how harshly they can deal with the citizens they were appointed to “serve and protect.”
As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, this mindset that any challenge to police authority is a threat that needs to be “neutralized” is a dangerous one that is part of a greater nationwide trend that sets the police beyond the reach of the Fourth Amendment. Moreover, when police officers are allowed to operate under the assumption that their word is law and that there is no room for any form of disagreement or even question, that serves to chill the First Amendment’s assurances of free speech, free assembly and the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. Frankly, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a casual “show your ID” request on a boardwalk, a stop-and-frisk search on a city street, or a traffic stop for speeding or just to check your insurance. If you feel like you can’t walk away from a police encounter of your own volition—and more often than not you can’t, especially when you’re being confronted by someone armed to the hilt with all manner of militarized weaponry and gear—then for all intents and purposes, you’re under arrest from the moment a cop stops you. Sad, isn’t it, how quickly we have gone from a nation of laws—where the least among us had just as much right to be treated with dignity and respect as the next person (in principle, at least)—to a nation of law enforcers (revenue collectors with weapons) who treat us all like suspects and criminals? Clearly, the language of freedom is no longer the common tongue spoken by the citizenry and their government. With the government having shifted into a language of force, “we the people” have been reduced to suspects in a surveillance state, criminals in a police state, and enemy combatants in a military empire. - See more at: http://www.rutherford.org/publications_r...
