I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. Galatians 1:6-7 (KJVA)
The segment of Christianity which historically carried the Biblical message of the "gospel" with more clarity than any other, to such an extent it bore the very name of the gospel itself in it's designation, is the "Evangelical" church. The "Evangelical" church is somewhat a mis-designation however, in that "Evangelical" and "Church" were actually somewhat historical oxymorons. The two words joined together for the sake of promotion of "establishment high Church" customs and policies back into the masses of the "Evangelical movement" whose movements and ecclesiologies stood primarily "in contrast" to the "established state Church" and it's ecclesiastical customs and theologies in Europe.
"Evangelical" Christianity was known from the Scriptures, and for it's pioneering work in human rights, civil rights, democracy and progress in research, be it science, history or law. This description now however, sounds unbelievable. The situation is so drastically different today, that the former description seems to be describing an alien group to the term "Evangelical". And of course, these earlier "Evangelicals" also rejected Rome's "Christ" mass unanimously.
The reason for the unanimous consent of it's rejection was not because of anything any religious leader will confess to you today. Today you will hear them denigrate their own alleged founding fathers with excuses and insults to justify their own departures, and their departures will always be presented in such a way as to minimize the reality of why these customs were completely and uniformly rejected by people who were once "saved", intelligently so, and for the most part famously, "by grace".Another idea that today's Pavolovian theological conditioning, does not seem to permit to go together? Yet they were in reality, mutually dependent.
So why would Biblically literate "Evangelicals" saved "by grace" consider the issue of "Christmas worship" to be of such a magnitude that they all recognized it's "danger" to that same "salvation by grace"? The short and honest answer is today's "Evangelicals" are not "preaching" the "same gospel". They are preaching ANOTHER ONE. One they think is much better. It "sells" better. It makes "more converts". It's more popular. But most of all, it's led by people who have been put into "power" over it, who are not "Evangelicals" at all, but frauds. and their "gospel" bears the same marks of fraudulence that they themselves bear publicly on their own foreheads, as the mark of Rome. Many are no more than "agnostics" or "atheists" stuck in a "religious career" they can find no lucrative opportunities to escape from. Oblivious to the motions of religious blasphemy they now conduct as "routine" for their "pay-checks".
"Evangelicals" in history past were a people who were educated and literate enough to know what they were actually "being saved from", and most importantly of all, why they needed the "salvation" to start with. Today however, not only do these phony "Evangelicals" not even know the faintest conception of the Biblical "Evangelical" gospel, they blush when the subject of "hell" comes up, they claim they don't want to "say" who goes there (because they do not know anymore) and never talk about it from their sermons, usually mostly filled with pop-psychology, motivational speeches, and money witchcraft techniques. (And yes, it is "money witchcraft" technique) Straight out of old 1930s-1950s books on "prosperity witchcraft".
Hitler called his Christianity, "Positive Christianity", because he wanted nothing "negative" said among his "religious" co-conspirators that would become an "obstacle" to his right-wing, anti-communist "political ecumenicalism" in Germany. this same "positive Christianity" that was so "positively demonic" (in the exact "tradition" of Pope Sixtus III [666 literally] and this Theodosius Codex) it slaughtered 14 million people, 6 million Jews and 7 million Protestants. Precisely as his ancient Codex calls for, as "the Law of the Roman Empire", which Hitler himself was more than eager to "obey".
Today this pattern has repeated itself almost verbatim here in America in "religious-conservative-Evangelical" circles, even citing Hitler's very own DESIGNATION for it!!! "POSITIVE CHRISTIANITY"!!! And it is no accident.
Historically, this is precisely where these very people have emerge from in recent history past. Their "Tele-Evangelism", their "Mega-Churches", their "conservative-political mixture theology", all without fail, find their historical origins in America's pre-world war II, Nazi movement, spread by some now very familiar faces on the American political scene. In fact, 2 former American presidents being the direct descendants of one of the archtype political leaders of this Nazi movement. [2 Former presidents not 1], along with their "political dynasty" which is estimated by many to be the most powerful still in North America, even after virtually destroying the country during the terms of both of these presidents.
And it is "no accident" that these same large corporate-sponsored "Mega-Churches" in America, bought and paid for with Nazi wealth, preach this Nazi gospel of "Positive Christianity", and all habitually and uniformly vote the same exact and precise way, while calling themselves the "Evangelical vote". (Which in fact, they are not) They are frauds and impostors who call themselves by this label, to make sure "real Evangelicals" have nothing to say about it. Admittedly, there is more gravel on the ground than there are diamonds, but that does not turn the gravel into diamonds simply because there are "more of them". And these people are no more "evangelicals" than a limestone gravel-stone is a diamond.
The poor deluded souls who "accept" their filthy polluted Nazi "gospels" of today, are not being "saved" from anything anymore, they're being deceived, defrauded, and made spiritually bankrupt. Not only spiritually, but intellectually too, of course, of a true Christian education on what real historic Evangelical Christianity actually is, and on the means and grace whereby men's souls are truly saved. And this is not mere old-tyme "fundementalist" nostalgia and reminiscing of some imaginary golden age gone by. These really are the historical facts of what has happened.
So, either the people in the past were "not" being "saved" from anything, or the people today who claim to be them, are not being "saved" from anything in that same Biblical and Historical sense, but it can't be both. Both history and the scriptures exclude that as a possibility. Which do you honestly think it is? Many faced with this delimina are opting for the third possibility of neither as found in Atheism (and who can honestly blame them). Atheism is simply the public confession of the private state these "ministers" have been in for a very very very long time now. And their demise began at "Christmas".
The Gospel of Christmas
"Christians" were told because the mafia, the klan and the money worshipers, like to go to "Church" on "Christmas" and "Easter" it's "good for evangelism". That was the lie that was told for decades as this lie was "grafted" into the "Evangelical" church. And sure enough, every "Christmas" and "Easter", there they would sit in those pews. Those same ungodly crews of worldings, racists, criminals, drug dealers and God-cursing business men with 20 Christmas trees in their homes. Every year they would hear the same message, smile and leave and return the next year for the same routine. You can always find one or two exceptions to any rule, but that was pretty much the rule. So much so, both the infrequent visitors and the active members of the Church would often be heard cracking jokes about it. Both groups laughing with their own version of a joke about the empty shallow (yet nostalgic) social rituals they were going through the motions of for "high society".
But if anyone really wished to claim there were all these masses of humanity being "brought to Christ because of Christmas", they are simply not telling the truth. It didn't happen. But that's not the only problem. While local Churches simply filled their offering plates with windfalls of cash during the "filled to capacity crowded events", they were also losing their self identity, their historical message, their "spiritual experience" and most important of all, their "gospel". These preachers made conscious decisions to value what came into their offering plates more than their own souls, their gospel, and it's salvation, and consequently the words of the sermons had to begin to change to accommodate these new priorities, just like their spiritually dead "State-Church" predecessors in Europe.
It was a "great time" to talk about "salvation" except you weren't supposed to talk about anyone actually needing it. It was a great time to "exalt Christ", but you weren't supposed to talk about giving up anything, and certainly not dying for him. Preachers who preached their customary "fire and brimstone" sermons, were mocked as "opportunists" and "offensive" to their luke-warm guests, So now the message was, "love yourself", and "think positive" and "things go better with Jesus... and coke". No hell, no sorrow, no guilt, no repentance, no salvation, no nothing, just a smiley face "Jesus" that's good for your "hair", your "wallet" and your "aerobics class". Historically oriented "Christians" knew these "departures" for what they were. But were forced to stand by and do and say nothing by the institutional leadership they found themselves the "pawns" of.
In fact, this Jesus was so pleasant, very few had a clue it had actually been designed in Nazi think-tanks to undermine "Evangelical" Christianity in America for the sole and intended purpose of subjugating American culture to the Roman Reich, and this very community would be betrayed by it's very own leaders, worse than Judas betrayed Christ for 30 pieces of silver. Judas's sin was followed by remorse. Their betrayal however, remains without remorse, to this very day, while the greedy self-serving seeds of their destruction rages on.
