CHRISTIAN AMERICA: LOST IN THE WILDERNESS
By Rev. Ted Pike
7 Feb 07
In the fall of 1846 a wagon train of settlers well on their way
to California faced a critical decision: to take the tested northwest
route or a shorter untested passage over the Sierras. A mountain
man who described himself as an expert on the region suggested this
alternative, and the settlers took his advice. But the "expert" did
not consider the lateness of the season; he offered a half-truth.
Before the travelers could cross the Sierras, a blizzard descended.
Most of the Donner party starved to death.
Today, Christian America faces a similar dilemma: how to escape
the arctic chill of anti-Christianity in media, education, and government.
Christians know they are in danger. But the wisest route of deliverance
The Donner party should have found another authority to advise
them about the total reality of their situation. So the church today
should consider the following point of view.
Ancient Dreams of World Empire
Two thousand years ago the ancient Pharisees, rejecting Christ,
gave themselves to their spiritual father, the devil (Jn. 8:44).
The apostle John describes them as agents of anti-Christ (1 Jn. 2:22)
and Paul says they are "enemies of the gospel" (Rom. 11:28).
Jesus calls them the "synagogue of Satan" (Rev. 2:9). Their
Babylonian Talmud, the greatest religious and ethical authority for
all observant Jews today, is replete with hatred for Jesus and Gentiles.
(See, Was the Talmud Behind NBC's
'Book of Daniel'?) Judaism's other
most sacred book, the Zohar or "Kabbalah," vows to displace
Gentile and Christian power in this world by any means possible.
Eventually, it predicts, Israel will rule over the nations under
their messiah, whom Christians know as the anti-Christ. (See, Are
ADL/B'nai B'rith Masonic, Not Jewish?)
From the time of the New Testament, Jews developed literature that
stoked their hatred of the dominant and ever-expanding Christian
church; this literature steams with their desire for vengeance. Out
of the Babylonian Talmud, they established a modern Judaism that
is humanistic in its values but religious in its rivalry to Christianity.
Driven by the Talmudic goal of breaking down Christian/capitalist
civilization, Jewish financiers and revolutionaries established communism
at the turn of the 20th century. 1 During the first half of the last
century Jews also took control of film, radio, and TV and most of
the large print media in America. This was to facilitate the same
Talmudic goal: Break down Christian morals and society so Jewish
power could prevail. (See, Jews
Confirm Big Media Is Jewish). In
1913 international Jewish bankers through their Federal Reserve Act
seized America's monetary system. Through FDR's New Deal they brought
creeping socialism and liberalism to America. 2
During the last half of the 20th century the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith and other Jewish "civil liberties" organizations
began hammering at the moral foundations of America. They litigated
against Christian values, such as prayer in schools, Christmas symbols,
public display of the Ten Commandments, etc. (See, ADL's
Foxman: New Testament is Anti-Semitic and ADL's
Attack on Southern Baptists Repeats History) Jewish activists are presently behind efforts to
strip military chaplains of their right to pray in the name of Jesus
in public. (See, Correction: Speech
at Air Force Academy Not Free)
Jewish media activists are almost invariably behind TV and movie
productions such as "The Last Temptation of Christ," "The
Book of Daniel," and promotion of "The Da Vinci Code," that
mock and cast doubt on Christianity and Jesus. (See, 'The
Last Temptation of Christ' An Unnecessary Disaster in Christian-Jewish
Relations and Who's Behind
NBC's 'Book of Daniel'? and The Jews Behind Da
At this moment ADL's Orwellian federal anti-hate bill is before
the House of Representatives. It aims to shackle America with a hate
crimes bureaucracy as in Canada, Europe, and Australia. Also, as
Dr. James Dobson revealed, two Jewish senators, Carl Levin and Joe
Lieberman, are responsible for inserting the Christian-harassing
Sec. 220 into the lobby reform bill, S.1. (Fortunately, due to mass
protest, Sec. 220 was recently rejected by the Senate.)
Christian Leaders Silent
Why have Christian leaders not identified Jewish activists' antagonism
to our nation and faith?
Especially during the last century, Talmudic Jewish activists have
encouraged Christians to believe that it is not only anti-Semitic
to criticize them but that such criticism is "cursing God's
chosen people" and will incur divine judgment. This misinterpretation
of Scripture has been unquestionably accepted by evangelicals. As
a result, Jewish activists are free to perpetually work behind the
scenes -- behind the cameras, behind Senate chambers, behind huge
banking institutions. No Christian leader dares expose their motives
and identities as Jewish without risking loss of his reputation as "anti-Semitic."
This is the reality behind the arctic chill of anti-Christianity
that threatens to envelop us like the dark winter that fell on the
Donner party. The question is now as then: What can we do?
Christ and the Old Testament prophets show us the way: Fear God
alone and confront evil directly. Boldly and specifically identify
evil including, if necessary, the racial and religious identities
of those who do evil.
Two thousand years later the same Judaic evil remains, and our
response must be unchanged. Civilization is precariously close to
the point of no return. If we do not speak out now, we may soon lose
our chance, especially if a federal speech crimes law is passed.
Half-Truths Cannot Save Us
As in the days of the Donner party, there are many "experts" today
who don't tell us the whole truth. They say what we want to hear.
It is not necessary, they say, to endure the reproach of doing open
battle with the ideology and identities of Judaic, Talmudic activists.
They can be referred to obliquely as "liberals, secular humanists,
media moguls," etc. If enough people oppose their media and
legislative attacks, these advisors tell us, they can be held back
just as effectively and without anyone suffering the reproach of
being tarred as "anti-Semitic." In other words, half-truths
can save us.
Yet such advice, which we have been heeding for most of the past
century, has not proven to be a shortcut to safety. It has not delivered
us. Instead, Christianity is increasingly huddled, under attack,
nearing exhaustion like the Donner party. The half-truths we trusted
have led to disaster.
If we could go back 160 years and give sage advice to the Donner
party in their distress, it would have to be: Forsake the bad advice
and half-truth that led you into this dilemma. Get back to civilization
as fast as possible!
What is civilization to us today? Civilization is the biblical
prophetic standard modeled by Christ and the prophets, to fear God
alone without respect of persons. It is to love and respect reality
and the whole truth and settle for nothing less.
There is warmth, light, and safety in such biblical civilization,
in such total truth-telling. We have wandered far from its protection,
but if we humble ourselves to turn and go in the opposite direction
from our error, there is hope.
With God as our guide and strength and the whole truth as our compass,
we can find our way back before winter.

Our Dilemma, completely
documents the Jewish role in overthrowing the czar and establishing
communism in Russia. This 345-page book is available at www.truthtellers.org

says Jews became the "peddlers of socialism" in America
during the 1920s and 30s.
