We hear the constant refrain from the Christian right that if the United States doesn’t rubber stamp anything and everything Israel does, ever, for any reason, God will destroy us. “Dr.” J.P. Sloane, who attended the Institute of Charismatic Studies at Oral Roberts University, trots out this dumb platitude at BarbWire:
Repeat after me: Correlation does not equal causation. One could just as easily argue that God sent Hurricane Katrina to express his displeasure that Tiger Woods had won the Master’s. There would be precisely as much evidence for that conclusion as there is for Sloane’s. But this is my favorite part:
In the Bible we see how God uses acts of weather and nations to bring disaster to people who thumb their noses at Him. Consider when we forced Israel to give up Gaza “for peace” and the Israelis had to force their own people to not only vacate Gaza—but do the unthinkable—dig up the graves of their dead and – unceremoniously – take their exhumed corpses with them. Be forewarned America—God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7).
The day the Bush Administration leaned on Israel’s Prime Minister, Arial Sharon, to withdraw from the Gaza, turbulence began to stir in the Mid-Atlantic which became known as “Katrina!” Shortly after the removal of the Jews and their dead from Gaza, Katrina hit the city of New Orleans, breaching the city’s levy at what is known in New Orleans as “the West Bank!” Thousands of New Orleans citizens were flooded from their homes, and many sought shelter in other states. On the heels of the Jews being forced to remove their dead from Gaza, New Orleans was giving up some of its dead from the above ground crypts that dot the city. (In New Orleans they have to bury the dead above ground due to the city being below sea level.) In December—on the heels of the Gaza pullout and America’s Katrina disaster—Prime Minister Ariel Sharon—who capitulated to the Bush Administration’s demand to pull out of Gaza—was stricken with a stroke which left him in a comma until his death in January of this year.
Friends, what we are seeing is the reason America is not mentioned as a world power in Bible end times prophecy. As America continues to travel down the Paganistic heathen slope of perversions—and atheists attacking Christians and Jews—while Muslims are celebrating their holidays in the very capital of our country—yes in our very own White House—Christmas—a legal American holiday—is under attack on a regular annual basis!
Uh, the reason America is not mentioned as w world power in the Bible is because it didn’t fucking exist when those texts were written. No country that did not exist at the time is mentioned there, no matter how many times you hold it up to a funhouse mirror while wearing your Oral Roberts Magic Prophecy Decoder Ring.
