- LAW ENFORCEMENT ADVOCACY
Here I answer a comment we got on The Word On The Word Of Faith GroupBlog
I refute the claims made in that comment and use many scriptures to show that life is fleeting and withers as fast as grass, so although there is nothing in itself wrong with riches, God wisely tells us to keep out eyes heaven-bound not only earthly possessions.
President Obama and others have said racism is in Americas DNA. But is this really true?
What do people mean when they say racism is in Americas DNA? In a Facebook debate group I am a member of I asked the question “Is racism in Americas DNA?”. In that question thread someone said something that accurately reflects what people mean when they say this about America. It was said….
“This nation was founded on White Racial Supremacy the very documents that are the foundation of this nation written exclusively for the White Race. And before you question that last statement read Chief Justice Roger Taney’s writings on the intent of the founders. So racist White Supremacy the root cause of racism is in this nation’s DNA.”
So what some of them are saying is that racism or white supremacy is in Americas founding documents, the Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
But the member of this debate group brought up an interesting point about “Chief Justice Roger Taney’s writings on the intent of the founders“. I never heard this before and did some research into it after I asked the guy what he meant. He said “Google Dred Scott and Chief Justice Roger Taney. Read his argument on the decision concerning the Founders intent.” So I did just that and here is what I found.
First a Wikipedia article says, and I seen it confirmed in two other places, that the Dred Scott ruling was one of the causes of the Civil War. Also in the article I seen a couple of other things that made me investigate further. One of the 2 dissenting judges said “the argument that Scott was not a citizen” was “more a matter of taste than of law”. In other words that is was merely Taneys opinion that our founding fathers and documents are racist or white supremacist in intent.
FROM MY WEBSITE THeWordOnTheWordOfFaith – Rom 4:17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyers and other Word of Faith teachers proclaim there is creative power and literal power of life and death in the tongue, via (Prov. 18:21 KJV) “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof”. Is this the correct interpretation and application of this verse?
The site BeginningAndEnd.com posted a wonderfully well researched and written article entitled “Apostasy Alert: Joel Osteen and Oprah Preach New Age Majic”. In the comment section a very sincere sounding guy named Todd wrote a comment about the article and the subject of the Power Of Words that provoked a response from me. My response turned out to be way too long to post in the comment section so I copied Todd’s comment and made my response here for him and the readers of this blog. To Todd, and others – I am sorry this comment turned out so long that I had to turn it into a post here on this blog, but this is a subject that I am very very passionate about and as you start reading it you will discover why. Todd, your comment there was almost illegible and I had to edit it to make it more readable for everyone because I had to read it five or six times to comprehend all of what you was saying. I hope I did not misrepresent you, your words and your meaning by doing so. Please speak up if I did. To the readers of this blog, you can read Todd’s comment in it’s original form at the article link above. To everyone, if you do not have time to read my very long response, please read the two articles linked at the bottom as they are the best post on this blog about the overall subject. PLEASE NOTE – I usually do not open comments on this blog but I have done so on this post incase Todd or anyone would like to discuss this matter further. Here is Todd’s comment and my response. – Damon Whitsell
“Todd – Anyone who makes false claims confuses and aids disorder. While people should be aware of false teachers if you present it mixed with false hood it only serves to confuse. The bible clearly says (Prov 18:21 KJV) “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” God in the beginning called things into existence when He created the world. When Jesus came He has called us to do the same. If you say unto the mountain be thou removed and doubt not in your heart it shall be removed. The devil only copies God and has to work within the laws of the universe that are in existent. God with using Moses as a medium wrote the Pentateuch (the 5 books of Moses), penta as in 5 like Pentagram. Often in the occult they use a 5 pointed star. Does this make the Pentateuch evil? No. The established laws of the universe by God have it that death and life are in the power of the tongue [law of attraction]. Now you like Moses or Jesus or the Apostles can speak and cause a thing and will be righteous if you do it in His name and for His glory. Or you can use the law of attraction for greed, lust, yourself, the devil and death. Death or life is in the power of the tongue. This includes all you say every act is a magical act say those in occult. God says what you speak happens by many biblical verses like proverbs 18:21 and others. So if you speak out negativity you will get it. If you were to listen to a sermon like, Taming the tongue – by pastor Matthew Hagge, you might see a lot of similarities between it and ‘the secret’. The difference is in pastor Hagees sermon will be full of bible verses and biblical application. But the method is the same cause the laws of the universe created by God are the same. Get your facts straight cause it will further your cause. You have a lot of good info on this site, but wrong facts will turn those whom you wish to save away. And death and life are in the tongue. Jesus said ‘judge not lest ye be judged’ so be careful not to judge present facts and be clear and cross check them.
Prov 4:21 KJV) “Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.”
(Prov 6:2 KJV) “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.”
(Prov 12:18 KJV) “There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.”
(Prov 15:4 KJV) “A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.”
(Prov 17:20 KJV) “He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief
Authority is released through words:
(Mark 11:23 KJV) “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”
(Mark 11:24 KJV) “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
(John 14:13 KJV) “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
(John 14:14 KJV) “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”
You receive what you believe…(Prov 6:2 KJV) “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.”
The tongue… oh how powerful”
HI Todd, I read your comment and felt lead to respond. This may shock you but I have to say that Joel Osteen and his teaching killed a very good friend of mine. I know you may think that sounds absurd but please hear me out. My friend got addicted to pain pills and when I would tell him “those pills are going to destroy you, if you do not get off of them”. He would respond “not if you will quit speaking negative things into my life”. He got that idea because he was an avid follower of Osteen. I know you might think Joel and his teachings had nothing to do with my friend’s death, it was the pills. Please let me explain further.
MY SITE THE RELIGION OF CONQUEST: Just four days after the Paris Terrorist Attack I got a pleasant surprise, a friends son sent me a friend request on Facebook. What made this request a lift-me-up for me was that I thought my friends son might have some more few choice words for me again. But I am glad I accepted his request because he informed me that he was after his own research seeing Islam in a whole new way. We went toe to toe on some of the issues related to Islam and it did not go very well I thought. But my friends son is very vocal and has political aspirations to continue to serve our country after he has already served in the military so I figured I would give it a shot at reaching him. Here is the Facebook messages between he and I. I started with…..
Damon’s first response
Hey Chris, I was hoping to talk with you more about Islam, you can call me all the names you like, it’s no biggie – but you need to learn that Islam does what Islam does because of Islamic doctrine and following Muhammad example, not because of what the USA does.
I wanted to ask you to research something and give me an answer to the following question. “HOW DID ISLAMIC COUNTRIES BECOME ISLAMIC?”
If your up to it I would like to talk further with you about it. If not this meme will sum up my point pretty well.
Take it easy.
Chris’s next response
If you would have been more tactful during our first conversation perhaps I would have been more inclined to discuss your question in our second conversation. I am not saying Islamic literature does not dictate a message of hate and violence. I am merely saying that there are many muslims that do not follow these messages of hate to the T just as there a many Christians who don’t put homosexuals to death or give a raped woman over to her rapist or stone people for working on the sabbath. Or chastise women for wearing pants or abstain from all shellfish.
My next response
I tried to be tactful and respectful man. I befriended you because I liked your video and spunk and have respect for you dad. You could have been more tactful too. But you kept doing what I was trying to challenge you on and what your doing now, making false moral equivalencies. When we talk about Islam why do you want to talk about Christianity? Like now, Jews who follow the Mosaic law no longer do things like stone people for working on the Sabbath, so what does that have to do with Islam and what they are doing today and always have.
Published on Sep 11, 2012 – “On 9/9/12 I got to teach my first class on Islam on the exact day I started studying Islam two years ago and in memory of the victims of 911. This first class is MY DREAM COME TRUE I started the class out with why they chose 911 to attack, showed the best presentation of the history of Jihad on 15 minutes by Bill Federer, played some of my appearance on the radio where I shared my HOW I BECAME AN ISLAMOPHOBE testimony and fielded questions from Jim Green, then I opened up for questions from the class attenders and I closed with speaking on”

FROM MY WEBSITE RELIGIONOFCONQUEST: We should only have to look at how the two religions came to prominence to answer this question. But this article will go further than that. We will look at how the two religions rose to power and then we will look at the Bible and the Koran.
There are 50 Muslim majority countries in the world today and almost all of them used to be Christian before being invaded and conquered by Islam. Those Christian lands became Christian because after 300 years of brutal persecution of Christians by Rome, Constantine made Christian persecution illegal in the Edict of Malan and later made Christianity the official religion of Rome in the Edict of Thessalonica on February 27th 380AD. These are two historical markers and documents that show Christianity rose to ascendancy without lifting a sword. But the opposite is true of Islam. Islam became what it is by The Sword of Allah.
The Sword of Allah is another name for Khalid ibn al-Walid who was a companion of Muhammad’s that led his armies. Khalid was victorious in over a hundred battles against the forces of the Byzantine-Roman Empire, Sassanid-Persian Empire, and their allies. Khalid invaded the Middle East, Asia Minor, into Eastern Europe and across Northern Africa. The Islamic armies then crossed the Mediterranean Sea and invaded into Italy, Spain, France and completely over-run the Mediterranean Islands, thus conquering two thirds of the Christian world well before the Crusades started. The video below will give you a visualization of these invasions. The video by Dr. Bill Warner of PoliticalIslam.com visualizes 548 Islamic Invasion Battles from 620AD to 1820AD, and it also shows the scope of the purely defensive Christian Crusades in comparison. The most important thing to notice about the video is that despite the fact that Muslim apologist and Liberals will try to say all the Islamic battles where defensive, not one single time did a foreign army invade the Islamic Arabian Peninsula, not even during the Crusades. These expansive Islamic battles led to the total conquest of the Persian Empire. And almost eliminated the religion of Zoroastrianism.
You can see a list of those battles here. Many of the earlier battles listed in the document and visualized in the video were not merely chronicled by Western Historians. All the battles that happened during Muhammads life are chronicled by Islamic sources.
The following is a link to the earliest Islamic biography of Muhammad (Sira): Sirat Rasul Allah written by Ibn Ishaq . It was written by a Muslim contemporary of Muhammad, not by Christians. And most of the Sira is political and has to do with what Muhammad and Islam did, and are to do today, to Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, the Arab polytheist pagans and others – rather than what Muslims are to do to get to heaven. If you read the Sira of Muhammad it is likely to change your life. It will for sure give you a new perspective of Islam. And a bloody one at that.
