Pathway in the Sea

Ever see a butterfly flutter by? John 3:7-8

Psalm 77:19

Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.

"The best way to show that a stick is crooked is not to argue about it or to spend time denouncing it, but to lay a straight stick along side it."

John Hagee and Gary Bauer discuss the criminalization of "Christianity" in this clip. John Hagee boasts of prevailing in a court case defending his first amendment rights, and laments that leftists in England threaten to sue Christians incessantly if they don't shut up about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the Bible in it's totality:

1 Corinthians 15

1Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

2By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

5And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:

6After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

7After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.

8And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time...

...11Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.

The materialistic, carnal unbelief of "Pastor" Hagee, (who endorsed John McCain as candidate for President in the 2008 campaign: see remarks on McCain's "judicial philosophy") is evident in his disobedient "judicial philosophy":

Matthew 5

40And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.

...while quoting from another portion of the Jesus' sermon urging "Christians" to refuse to be forced "into the closet":

Matthew 5

13Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

14Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

...when he has clearly missed the point of the very next section:

Matthew 5

15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

...and when "in the closet" is where Christians are at their absolute maximum effectiveness in affecting significant change for the wellbeing of the land in which they dwell:

Matthew 6

5And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

8Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

2 Chronicles 7

14If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

1 Timothy 2

1I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

2For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

4Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

5For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

6Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

...moving on, the discussion turns to "The Matthew Shepard Act", where Gary Bauer bewails the notion that speech, such as his book or John Hagee's book or church attendance, if it were shown to be an influence in the life of a criminal who subsequently commits a "hate crime"as defined in "The Matthew Shepard Act",then those who engage in such speech will be held criminally liable for that crime. Anybody with an even rudimentary understanding of the concepts of "due process of law", "presumed innocence", prosecutorial "burden of proof", etc., let alone the First Amendment itself, can see that such a collectivization of criminal liability, in the absence of explicit criminal incitement, for such a crime, is patently unconstitutional, and, if we want to be frank and straightforward about it, is unconventional, psychological warfare against the First Amendment to the Constitution and We, the American People, and is therefore legally defined as Treason by the U. S. Constitution. However, Gary Bauer, without so much as an "on the other hand", blithely articulates his opinion that superior officers who advanced the "Ft. Hood Shooter" and failed to act on his association with, and his expressed sympathies for, Islamic radicals, should be "broken in rank" "because they are just as responsible, indirectly, for the killings that happened on that day".




"Babbling idiots" doesn't even intersect the same cosmic intellectual dimension that John Hagee and Gary Bauer inhabit, hence the question:

"Can America Survive John Hagee?"
