 "It matters if the world speaks out in condemnation and then nothing happens."
John Kerry

Statement on Syria


John Kerry
Secretary of State
Treaty Room
Washington, DC
August 30, 2013

President Obama has spent many days now consulting with Congress and talking with leaders around the world about the situation in Syria. And last night, the President asked all of us on his national security team to consult with the leaders of Congress as well, including the leadership of the Congressional national security committees. And he asked us to consult about what we know regarding the horrific chemical weapons attack in the Damascus suburbs last week. I will tell you that as someone who has spent nearly three decades in the United States Congress, I know that that consultation is the right way for a president to approach a decision of when and how and if to use military force. And it’s important to ask the tough questions and get the tough answers before taking action, not just afterwards.
And I believe, as President Obama does, that it is also important to discuss this directly with the American people. That’s our responsibility, to talk with the citizens who have entrusted all of us in the Administration and the Congress with the responsibility for their security. That’s why this morning’s release of our government’s unclassified estimate of what took place in Syria is so important. Its findings are as clear as they are compelling. I’m not asking you to take my word for it. Read for yourself, everyone, those listening. All of you, read for yourselves the evidence from thousands of sources, evidence that is already publicly available, and read for yourselves the verdict reached by our intelligence community about the chemical weapons attack the Assad regime inflicted on the opposition and on opposition-controlled or contested neighborhoods in the Damascus suburbs on the early morning of August 21st.
Our intelligence community has carefully reviewed and re-reviewed information regarding this attack, and I will tell you it has done so more than mindful of the Iraq experience. We will not repeat that moment. Accordingly, we have taken unprecedented steps to declassify and make facts available to people who can judge for themselves. But still, in order to protect sources and methods, some of what we know will only be released to members of Congress, the representatives of the American people. That means that some things we do know we can’t talk about publicly.
So what do we really know that we can talk about? Well, we know that the Assad regime has the largest chemical weapons program in the entire Middle East. We know that the regime has used those weapons multiple times this year and has used them on a smaller scale, but still it has used them against its own people, including not very far from where last Wednesday’s attack happened. We know that the regime was specifically determined to rid the Damascus suburbs of the opposition, and it was frustrated that it hadn’t succeeded in doing so.
We know that for three days before the attack the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons personnel were on the ground in the area making preparations. And we know that the Syrian regime elements were told to prepare for the attack by putting on gas masks and taking precautions associated with chemical weapons. We know that these were specific instructions. We know where the rockets were launched from and at what time. We know where they landed and when. We know rockets came only from regime-controlled areas and went only to opposition-controlled or contested neighborhoods.
And we know, as does the world, that just 90 minutes later all hell broke loose in the social media. With our own eyes we have seen the thousands of reports from 11 separate sites in the Damascus suburbs. All of them show and report victims with breathing difficulties, people twitching with spasms, coughing, rapid heartbeats, foaming at the mouth, unconsciousness and death.
And we know it was ordinary Syrian citizens who reported all of these horrors. And just as important, we know what the doctors and the nurses who treated them didn’t report – not a scratch, not a shrapnel wound, not a cut, not a gunshot wound. We saw rows of dead lined up in burial shrouds, the white linen unstained by a single drop of blood. Instead of being tucked safely in their beds at home, we saw rows of children lying side by side sprawled on a hospital floor, all of them dead from Assad’s gas and surrounded by parents and grandparents who had suffered the same fate.
The United States Government now knows that at least 1,429 Syrians were killed in this attack, including at least 426 children. Even the first responders, the doctors, nurses, and medics who tried to save them, they became victims themselves. We saw them gasping for air, terrified that their own lives were in danger.
This is the indiscriminate, inconceivable horror of chemical weapons. This is what Assad did to his own people.
We also know many disturbing details about the aftermath. We know that a senior regime official who knew about the attack confirmed that chemical weapons were used by the regime, reviewed the impact, and actually was afraid that they would be discovered. We know this.
And we know what they did next. I personally called the Foreign Minister of Syria and I said to him, “If, as you say, your nation has nothing to hide, then let the United Nations in immediately and give the inspectors the unfettered access so they have the opportunity to tell your story.” Instead, for four days they shelled the neighborhood in order to destroy evidence, bombarding block after block at a rate four times higher than they had over the previous 10 days. And when the UN inspectors finally gained access, that access, as we now know, was restricted and controlled.
In all of these things that I have listed, in all of these things that we know, all of them, the American intelligence community has high confidence, high confidence. This is common sense. This is evidence. These are facts.
So the primary question is really no longer: What do we know? The question is: What are we – we collectively – what are we in the world going to do about it?
As previous storms in history have gathered, when unspeakable crimes were within our power to stop them, we have been warned against the temptations of looking the other way. History is full of leaders who have warned against inaction, indifference, and especially against silence when it mattered most. Our choices then in history had great consequences and our choice today has great consequences. It matters that nearly a hundred years ago, in direct response to the utter horror and inhumanity of World War I, that the civilized world agreed that chemical weapons should never be used again.
That was the world’s resolve then, and that began nearly a century of effort to create a clear redline for the international community. It matters today that we are working as an international community to rid the world of the worst weapons. That’s why we signed agreements like the START Treaty, the New START Treaty, the Chemical Weapons Convention, which more than 180 countries, including Iran, Iraq, and Lebanon, have signed on to.
It matters to our security and the security of our allies. It matters to Israel. It matters to our close friends Jordan, Turkey, and Lebanon – all of whom live just a stiff breeze away from Damascus. It matters to all of them where the Syrian chemical weapons are. And if unchecked, they can cause even greater death and destruction to those friends. And it matters deeply to the credibility and the future interests of the United States of America and our allies.
It matters because a lot of other countries, whose polices challenges these international norms, are watching. They are watching. They want to see whether the United States and our friends mean what we say. It is directly related to our credibility and whether countries still believe the United States when it says something. They are watching to see if Syria can get away with it, because then maybe they too can put the world at greater risk.
And make no mistake, in an increasingly complicated world of sectarian and religious extremist violence, what we choose to do or not do matters in real ways to our own security. Some cite the risk of doing things, but we need to ask, what is the risk of doing nothing?
It matters because if we choose to live in a world where a thug and a murderer like Bashar al-Assad can gas thousands of his own people with impunity, even after the United States and our allies said no, and then the world does nothing about it, there will be no end to the test of our resolve and the dangers that will flow from those others who believe that they can do as they will.
This matters also beyond the limits of Syria’s borders. It is about whether Iran, which itself has been a victim of chemical weapons attacks, will now feel emboldened, in the absence of action, to obtain nuclear weapons. It is about Hezbollah, and North Korea, and every other terrorist group or dictator that might ever again contemplate the use of weapons of mass destruction. Will they remember that the Assad regime was stopped from those weapons’ current or future use, or will they remember that the world stood aside and created impunity?
So our concern is not just about some far off land oceans away. That’s not what this is about. Our concern with the cause of the defenseless people of Syria is about choices that will directly affect our role in the world and our interests in the world. It is also profoundly about who we are. We are the United States of America. We are the country that has tried, not always successfully, but always tried to honor a set of universal values around which we have organized our lives and our aspirations. This crime against conscience, this crime against humanity, this crime against the most fundamental principles of international community, against the norm of the international community, this matters to us. And it matters to who we are. And it matters to leadership and to our credibility in the world. My friends, it matters here if nothing is done. It matters if the world speaks out in condemnation and then nothing happens.
America should feel confident and gratified that we are not alone in our condemnation, and we are not alone in our will to do something about it and to act. The world is speaking out, and many friends stand ready to respond. The Arab League pledged, quote, “to hold the Syrian regime fully responsible for this crime.” The Organization for Islamic Cooperation condemned the regime and said we needed, quote, “to hold the Syrian Government legally and morally accountable for this heinous crime.” Turkey said there is no doubt that the regime is responsible. Our oldest ally, the French, said the regime, quote, “committed this vile action, and it is an outrage to use weapons that the community has banned for the last 90 years in all international conventions.” The Australian Prime Minister said he didn’t want history to record that we were, quote, “a party to turning such a blind eye.”
So now that we know what we know, the question we must all be asking is: What will we do? Let me emphasize – President Obama, we in the United States, we believe in the United Nations. And we have great respect for the brave inspectors who endured regime gunfire and obstructions to their investigation. But as Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary General, has said again and again, the UN investigation will not affirm who used these chemical weapons. That is not the mandate of the UN investigation. They will only affirm whether such weapons were used. By the definition of their own mandate, the UN can’t tell us anything that we haven’t shared with you this afternoon or that we don’t already know. And because of the guaranteed Russian obstructionism of any action through the UN Security Council, the UN cannot galvanize the world to act as it should.
So let me be clear. We will continue talking to the Congress, talking to our allies, and most importantly, talking to the American people. President Obama will ensure that the United States of America makes our own decisions on our own timelines based on our values and our interests.
Now, we know that after a decade of conflict, the American people are tired of war. Believe me, I am, too. But fatigue does not absolve us of our responsibility. Just longing for peace does not necessarily bring it about. And history would judge us all extraordinarily harshly if we turned a blind eye to a dictator’s wanton use of weapons of mass destruction against all warnings, against all common understanding of decency. These things we do know.
We also know that we have a President who does what he says that he will do. And he has said very clearly that whatever decision he makes in Syria, it will bear no resemblance to Afghanistan, Iraq, or even Libya. It will not involve any boots on the ground. It will not be open-ended. And it will not assume responsibility for a civil war that is already well underway. The President has been clear: Any action that he might decide to take will be a limited and tailored response to ensure that a despot’s brutal and flagrant use of chemical weapons is held accountable. And ultimately, ultimately, we are committed – we remain committed, we believe it’s the primary objective – is to have a diplomatic process that can resolve this through negotiation, because we know there is no ultimate military solution. It has to be political. It has to happen at the negotiating table, and we are deeply committed to getting there.
So that is what we know. That’s what the leaders of Congress now know. And that’s what the American people need to know. And that is at the core of the decisions that must now be made for the security of our country and for the promise of a planet where the world’s most heinous weapons must never again be used against the world’s most vulnerable people.
Thank you very much.


It was in 1937 when Adolf Hitler said: “The youth of today is ever the people of tomorrow. For this reason we have set before ourselves the task of inoculating our youth with the spirit of this community of the people at a very early age, at an age when human beings are still unperverted and therefore unspoiled. This Reich stands, and it is building itself up for the future, upon its youth. And this new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.”

At 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 29, 2013, in what has been called a "brutal and vicious act," a team of 20 social workers, police officers, and special agents stormed a homeschooling family's residence near Darmstadt, Germany, forcibly removing all four of the family's children (ages 7-14). The sole grounds for removal were that the parents, Dirk and Petra Wunderlich, continued to homeschool their children in defiance of a German ban on home education. 
Judge Koenig, a Darmstadt family court judge, signed the order authorizing the immediate seizure of Dirk and Petra Wunderlich's children on August 28. Citing the parents' failure to cooperate "with the authorities to send the children to school," the judge also authorized the use of force "against the children" if necessary, reasoning that such force might be required because the children had "adopted the parents' opinions" regarding homeschooling and that "no cooperation could be expected" from either the parents or the children.

This story has been reported by at least several news sources to date:
Homeschool Legal Defense:

World Net Daily:
The New American:
German authorities’ latest abduction of four homeschooled children, aged 7 through 14, occurred in the early hours of August 29. As the Wunderlich family was preparing to start the school day, a swarm of armed “special agents” with a battering ram arrived at the family’s home to seize the kids. According to court documents obtained and translated by theHome School Legal Defense Association, the sole justification for the home invasion and abduction was the parents’ refusal to surrender their children for government-approved “education.” 
“I looked through a window and saw many people, police, and special agents, all armed,” Dirk Wunderlich, the father, told HSLDA after the terrifying ordeal. “They told me they wanted to come in to speak with me. I tried to ask questions, but within seconds, three police officers brought a battering ram and were about to break the door in, so I opened it.” According to Wunderlich, as neighbors stood outside crying, his 14-year-old daughter Machsejah was forcibly removed from home by two large, rude policemen “as if she were a criminal.” When Petra Wunderlich tried to kiss and hug Machsejah as she was being marched away to an undisclosed location, one of the “special agents” elbowed the distraught mother out of the way and said it was “too late for that.” Before leaving, officials promised the parents that they would not be seeing their children again "anytime soon." 

The Blaze: 

Christian Post:

"The children are now effectively property of the state. How can Germany be considered a true democratic government when the liberties of parents and children are being consumed by their government?" 
The family resettled near Darmstadt, just 25 miles south of Frankfurt, with some trepidation. It is mandatory that all residents of Germany register with their local municipal authorities. Within days of the family registering their presence in the town, authorities initiated a criminal truancy case, and just months later the “Youth Welfare Office” was granted legal custody of the children. However, the court left the children in the residence with the parents since they were being well treated and otherwise cared for by their parents."
"Authorities even took the children’s passports, making it impossible for the family to escape—a violation of a number of human rights guaranteed to them by the European Convention of Human Rights, said HSLDA Chairman and Founder Michael Farris."
This terrorist act was a fulfillment of the promise by state and school authorities last year to return:

U.S. Citizens Detained or Missing in Iran

Press Statement

John Kerry
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
August 28, 2013

The United States respectfully asks the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran to work cooperatively with us in our efforts to help U.S. citizens Robert Levinson, Amir Hekmati, and Saeed Abedini to return to their families after lengthy detentions.
Mr. Levinson went missing from Kish Island, Iran, in March 2007. Mr. Levinson is not only a husband, but a caring father to seven children. His family has endured with courage and quiet dignity the pain of spending so many important family milestones without him there. They shouldn’t have to endure additional worry about his whereabouts and well being. We call again on the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran to uphold its offer to help find Mr. Levinson and return him safely to his family.
The United States is also deeply concerned about the fate of dual U.S. citizens Amir Hekmati and Saeed Abedini. Tomorrow marks the two-year anniversary of Mr. Hekmati’s detention in Iran on false espionage charges. On September 26, Mr. Abedini will have spent a year in detention in Iran. He was sentenced to eight years in prison on charges related to his religious beliefs.
President Rouhani has shared in his speeches and interviews over the past few months his hope and vision to improve the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s relationship with the world.
We urge the Iranian Government to release Mr. Hekmati and Mr. Abedini and to help us locate Mr. Levinson so that they may be reunited with their families as safely and as soon as possible.
These men belong at home with those who love them and miss them.
Meanwhile the White House spokesperson is flippant when asked about Christians in Egypt being held in prison and tortured or killed, as seen in this YouTube video:

White House Spokesman on Obama "Red Line in Egypt" on Attacks on Christians: "I Didn't Bring My Red Pen":

Excerpt of press conference from:

Press Briefing by Principal Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest, 8/21/2013, at:

"Question (from reporter):    So applying the same -- and Jim got at this a bit about the rhetoric in many of these cases -- be shifted to Egypt with people being killed, Christians in particular being targeted, churches being destroyed.  What's the President's red line in Egypt?

MR. EARNEST:  Well, I didn't bring my red pen out with me today.  But I can tell you that we have condemned in unambiguous terms all the violence that's been perpetrated there in Egypt.  We have been concerned and condemn the violence that was perpetrated by the government against peaceful protestors.  And we're just as outraged and just as concerned about reports that Christian churches have been targeted. The violence in Egypt should come to an end.  It needs to stop.  And that is the way that we're going to facilitate the kind of reconciliation that will allow the interim government to make good on their promise to transition back to a democratically elected, civilian government.  We need to see an inclusive process get started there, and that’s something that we are encouraging the interim government to undertake."

Again, no moral outrage or condemnation here, 
thanks to Obama


Mother Charged With Murdering Newborn in Sports Bar Restroom in Bethlehem, PA

"A Pennsylvania woman has been arrested and charged with murder after she gave birth to a baby in a women's room at a sports bar, then stuffed the newborn into a plastic bag and ditched him in the tank behind a toilet.
According to local news reports, 26-year-old Amanda Hein was with friends at Starters Pub near Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, for an evening of pay-per-view wrestling when she disappeared into the women's room at the pub, returning some 40 minutes later with blood on her clothes but insisting she was okay."

Woman (Allegedly) Kills Newborn in Sports Bar Bathroom, Returns to Wrestling Match:

Published on Aug 28, 2013 on YouTube above:
PA. Woman gives birth in public toilet, kills baby, hides body in toilet, goes back to watching wrestling !!!

A Pennsylvania woman is being held without bond after she allegedly gave birth to a baby boy in a bar bathroom, killed him and left his body in a toilet tank.

According to prosecutors, 26-year-old Amanda Catherine Hein went with three men to Starters Pub in Lower Saucon Township on August 18 to watch a pay-per-view wrestling event. The following morning, a cleaning crew at the pub allegedly discovered the dead body of a newborn baby wrapped in a plastic bag in a toilet tank in the ladies' bathroom.

Investigators found that one of the booths in the pub had brown staining and liquid on it that's consistent with blood, according to Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli. Police checked the bar's records and made contact with the person who had reserved the booth for the event that night.

Police then interviewed Luis Rivera, who said he sat in that booth with Hein during the event. Rivera claimed Hein complained about discomfort and spasms that evening before excusing herself to go to the bathroom, Morganelli told reporters Monday.

Rivera told police Hein was gone for "an extended period of time," then returned to the table and went outside to smoke a cigarette, according to Morganelli.

When Hein came back, Rivera allegedly asked if she was OK, and she said she was but she was in pain. She stayed for about an hour to watch the rest of the event. Rivera noticed that there appeared to be liquid on Hein's clothes that looked like blood, Morganelli said.

Rivera said he asked Hein multiple times if she needed to go a hospital but she refused, so he dropped her off at home, according to authorities.

A medical examiner performed an autopsy on the baby on August 20 and found that the boy was born alive and viable and had gestated for 33 to 36 weeks. The cause of death was determined to be suffocation.

When Hein was interviewed by police, she allegedly admitted she gave birth in a bathroom stall and left the baby in the toilet tank, court documents stated.

"She placed the child in a plastic bag which she obtained from the garbage can in the stall. She then put the plastic bag containing the child in the water tank for the toilet. Hein advised after she placed the bag and child in the toilet tank, she returned to the dining area until the event was over," a probable cause affidavit alleged.

Morganelli said Monday that Hein had known she was pregnant for a few months but did not tell anyone. Investigators are still trying to determine whom the child's father was.

Prosecutors have not yet made a decision on whether to seek the death penalty in the case. Morganelli told reporters he does not know what may have motivated Hein to allegedly kill her child.

"I cannot get inside this lady's head," he said. "I have no clue."

Morganelli described the case as "very upsetting."

Northhampton County Coroner Zachary Lysek reminded reporters that Pennsylvania has safe haven laws that allow a parent to relinquish a child to the state at any hospital up to 28 days after birth with no questions asked.

"It's a sad situation," Morganelli said. "This young lady made a very, very bad choice. Why? I don't know."

Court records do not indicate whether Hein has an attorney. Her stepmother told the Morning Call newspaper that she had not even known Hein was pregnant.

Hein appeared in court Monday for a preliminary arraignment on a criminal homicide charge. She was denied bond.

Amitai Etzioni - Hidden Guru of Globalization:

"American sociologist and educator Amitai Etzioni was one of the prominent founders of this newly shaped philosophy. He believes that individuals have been given too much freedom and not enough responsibilities. Etzioni and other communitarians are in favor of more obligations and fewer rights.[4]They desire the community to live up to the basic principle of the good society. But as you will learn, it will only be good for those in charge."

From the excellent blog, The Communitarian Trap, one of three Christian blogs by its author, is this timely and thorough post, found at:
Below is the complete, unedited post:

The Hands and Feet of Christ and the Identifying Marks of a Communitarian Social Justice Agenda

The Church on a Mission


OUR COMMENT ABOUT "LIFE GROUPS": Here is an example of a feelings based, experiential "life group" 
ministry at a Baptist church, where "teaching and fellowship" are not the purposes. Instead, the focus is
on "sharing personal situations, self interpretation of Bible, group (community) over individual growth,
and how you can be 'used'". This is an excerpt from that church website at 
"Life Groups:
A Life Group is a small group of people who meet in homes in order to develop a deeper spiritual family where 
we experience and demonstrate the love and power of Christ. The goal of a Life Group is not “teaching” or 
“fellowship.”  While these are important elements, the goal is to experience Christ’s love and power.
This is a different purpose than a Bible Study group, where the goal may be to acquire Bible 
knowledge and apply it.  Life Groups maintain a healthy balance on four core values: Sharing, Study, Prayer,
and Service.
Share: Sharing is a time where you get to know others and where you allow others to know you, 
specifically to allow others to know the concrete ways in which you are currently looking for God to act in your
Study: Life-change takes place when both God’s truth and the power of the Holy Spirit operate on our hearts. 
The clearest and most certain place where truth can be found is in the Scripture. For this reason, our groups 
will be driven to and driven by the Bible.
Pray: The purpose of the prayer time is to take the truths of the biblical text and “pray them into 
the heart” of each individual and the group.
Serve: Jesus came “to seek and save the lost.”  The activity, which energized his life, was looking out to 
needs beyond his own:  not an obsession with caring for himself.  The starting point for mission is the other 
members of the group and it grows towards those outside the group. As long as people come to Life 
Group primarily for what they can get out of it, rather than for what they can contribute to it, the group 
will be unhealthy and anemic."
Churches build community within groups, and in turn they perform service projects that reach into 
the surrounding community. Based on the service/volunteerism of the group, the church becomes a hub 
for the community. As a strategy of change agents, the Church is on a "mission from God" that has 
become the friendly face that is creating a good society, which will unknowingly facilitate the transition 
of Christians and churches into the collectivist mindset for the New World Order.
For example, Willowdale Chapel of Unionville, PA and their $6.5 million "Shine Like Stars" 
"community program" merging church ministries, government, and social service 
organizations. See: our previous 
post about Willowdale's collectivist/communitarian approach at:

The hands represent the interconnectedness of the group, and 
unity in diversity - also seen in many churches. Ironically the 
ministry photo from the top of the post, parallels Amitai 
Etzioni's book cover. He's the founder of the Communitarian 
Network, and teaches the Third Way political concepts of the 
good society. Unfortunately, his ideas have proven to be 

At the Root of Volunteerism
Volunteerism is an integral part of Communitarianism. It is part of being a good citizen. Based on the 
writings of Amitai Etzioni's Communitarian Network, the following statement describes how volunteerism 
fits into the community:
"National and local service, as well as volunteer work, is desirable to build and express a civil commitment. 
Such activities, bringing together people from different backgrounds and enabling and encouraging them 
to work together, build community and foster mutual respect and tolerance."[1]
Their logic is that you need to build community in order to create a collective mindset. Creating a collective 
mindset eliminates individualism, which is what America's social-political ideals were built upon. Collectivism 
is the basis for Karl Marx's Socialist/Communist philosophy. In collectivism, the group consensus comes first 
over one's personal ambitions. Wikipedia states that:
"Collectivism is any philosophic, political, religious, economic, or social outlook that emphasizes the
interdependence of every human.[2] The term interdependence in the Communist Manifesto (1848)
in describing the universal interdependence of nations in comparison to the old local and national seclusion
of independence and self-sufficiency."[3]
Marx and Engel's social relationships and processes are associated with Feudalism, including the 
interdependence of church and state, and the economic interdependence of families. Coincidentally, 
Feudalism is a system that is interconnected and interdependent, as you see below.[4]

Realizing that these concepts lead to Communism, note what this U.N. representative said about unity in 
Diversity and interconnectedness:
 "...the highest possible attainment of a civilization, a testimony to the most noble possibilities of the human 
race. This attainment is made possible through passionate concern for choice, in an atmosphere of social 
trust." Michael Novak, former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Human Rights Commission [5]
Interdependence, unity in diversity, and interconnectedness are New Age/occult concepts that are taught 
in Theosophy. The Theosophical Society promotes the following:
"An essential principle of theosophy is its concept of a holistic world view which emphasizes the unity and 
interconnectedness of all life, the basic oneness of all people and all species of life. Its  philosophy points to 
a divine spark in each of us that is always part of the Source from which it arises."
These three teachings are being used to bring in the single authoritarian government. Take note of this 
statement from the UNESCO website. When following the link, you will see that all these concepts are there. 
It is man's solution to peace - which skirts around the true solution for peace:

Today, sustainable development calls to rethink our relationship to the economy, to society and the 
environment, bearing in mind that the emerging and future challenges of humankind do require 
collective responses, which implies the kind of solidarity that can result only from a culture of peace, 
non-violence and dialogue which condenses “that which binds” cultures and societies to each other 
and from within. In turn, a culture of peace fosters sustainable development since it is aimed at helping 
people cope resiliently and creatively with ethical, cultural, political, environmental and other social 
True peace is not the lack of conflict between men, but the lack of conflict between men 
and God. God has given us the solution to human conflict and that solution is the person 
of Christ Jesus. There is only one “roadmap to peace” and it is the path with Jesus.[6]

If you have been a Christian for any length of time, you would know that Antichrist will come in peaceably 
on a platform of peace, prosperity, and safety for all nations and all religions - deceiving the majority.
Satan has cleverly uses doctrines of demons to get the church on board with cleverly disguised global 
and community missional goals to assist the Enemy in securing the world for his purposes. Even the 
overemphasis of the teaching on love - it all plays a part of the elimination of intolerance, so that proponents 
can bring about civic cooperation, create responsibilities, and achieve common good  for the 

The Purpose of the Church
Within the last decade, the corporate church has created a new mission for the Church - to be the hands 
and feet of Christ. The Purpose Driven and Emergent/Missional churches have used 1 Cor. 12:12-26 to 
create an unified Christian workforce for the world. Please read closely:
"For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, 
are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews 
or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body 
is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; 
is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; 
is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole 
were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath God set the members every one of them in the 
body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they 
many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: 
nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, much more those members of the body, 
which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: And those members of the body, which we think to be 
less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more 
abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, 
having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked. That there should be no schism in the 
body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member 
suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it."
The true meaning of these verses is directed toward genuine believers, so that:
  1. Each believer in the Body of Christ will seek unity within the Body, and
  2. Each believer has a different spiritual gift, their position within the Body has an important part. 
It does not mean that the Church is to become the volunteer "good works" workforce for 
the community or some far-off land. If coupled with the Great Commission, it still isn't the 
correct use of scripture.
(Comment from us:
For example: "Good Neighbors Home Repair" of Kennett Square, PA,, an ecumenical, interfaith, interdenominational volunteer
organization that uses the services of students and others to do needed home repairs for the 
poor. Trouble is, they get exposed to mystical contemplative practices where they have meals 
and sleeping accomodations under the guise of "worship".)

The Christian Communist uses several passages to advance their theological and political theory based upon 
the view that the teachings of Jesus Christ compels Christians to support Communism as the ideal social 
system. Christ did not support any political system. He merely wanted believers to be connected with one 
another, and not fly solo. Since it is often times difficult living separate from the world system, He desired us 
to stick together. He wanted us to encourage one another in love, in spite of our giftings and differences 
within the Body.

"Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.Gal. 6:2
The modern church now sees fit to assume the key role of managing the transformation of society. 
That is a far reach from the original intent  for the purpose of the Church.
With the emphasis on the concern for community and social justice issues, this should cause us to 
question the genuine purpose of the Body of Christ. The Bible says that it is to: worship God (Luke 4:8
John 4:23), study His Word (2 Tim. 2:15), pray (Acts 2:42), love one another (John 13:35), bear one 
another's burdens (Gal. 6:2), learn how to live as godly people (Titus 2:11-12), for the perfecting of the 
saints (Eph. 4:12), and to spread the Gospel (Matt. 28:18-20).

Buzz Word: The Use and Meaning of Words
Change agents routinely alter the meaning and use of biblical words and phrases. For instance, 
the Emergent/Purpose Driven church use of the phrase "the hands and feet of Christ." This 
phrase actually has two meanings - one true and the other false. The first meaning is used in 
Gospel outreach. It describes one who goes out to preach the Gospel to an unsaved world headed toward 
judgment. It is one who reaches their surrounding community through Gospel Mission ministries to the poor, 
and prison outreach, as they deliver the “good news” that condemned sinners worthy of judgement from 
God’s wrath, having offended a holy God. It has been used over the years within the Church to emphasize 
that each individual believer, as they work in ministry, may be the only Jesus the unbelieving world will ever 
see. It's the basis for lifestyle evangelism, and it can often silently lead people to the Lord. 
The second use of the phrase is relatively new. The Purpose Driven, seeker friendly church, is 
one that improves society. Outside of bettering society, the missional concept has no content; 
it specifically denies a mission of proclaiming an escape from God’s coming wrath. 
For the Emergent, “The journey is the reward,” and the journey will certainly end well for all.[8
If it has a Gospel presentation, it's typically a weak one, or no Gospel at all. It mobilizes the unrepentant 
to good works - to be the hands and feet of Christ.

You can see the contrast in the sermon notes of this popular preacher, who will remain nameless. In his
Gospel-driven message,  he says:
"The work of Jesus Christ in the world is in the hands of those who belong to Him. In that sense, Christ has 
no hands but our hands, no feet but our feet. The Lord commissioned His earthly ministry to His followers,
saying, 'Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the 
Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you (Matt 28:20)'"[9The phrase 
sounds similar to that of the Emergent/Missional church, but this preacher's church has only outreach to 
their local Gospel Mission, a prison ministry, a local Christian college, and a pastor's training program. He is 
not flawless, since his church promotes interdependence with government, but it doesn't seem to be 
promoting social justice missions projects.

Now let's look at Rick Warren's writings. In the following quote, Warren was speaking about disaster relief
for Hurricane Katrina:
"Disaster presents Christians with unprecedented opportunities to mobilize the Church
and become the hands and feet of Christ. We need to become audio-visual Christians – 
not just talking about it, but doing it." [10]

Straight from Rick Warren's Dominionist plan.[11What makes it uniquely 
Communitarian is the interconnectedness of the social, political, and economic sectors.

This reflects the double meaning for 1 Cor. 12: 12-27, and how these are man's ideanot God's.
Mobilizing an army of Christian workers is a man thing, not a God thing. This was never seen in
the Bible, but is seen in the U.N. Millennium Development Goals - an organization Rick Warren has had 
closecontact with.[12]

Ironically, another famous person used the same concept of service. Teresa of Avila put it like this:
“Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which 
he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands 
through which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are 
his body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.”

Teresa of Avila (1515 – 1582) was a prominent Spanish mystic, a Roman Catholic saint, 
involved in contemplative prayer. She wasn't hearing from the Lord, rather from the spirit 
"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false 
prophets are gone out into the world." 1 John 4:1
"Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: 
they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
Jeremiah 23:16

Calling a Spade a Spade
What once seemed like a harmless principle on the unity of the Body taught in 1 Cor. 12: 12-27, 
is now the rallying cry of  the corporate Church. The once clear-cut purpose of the Church has 
now been molded by change agents to have the elements of  Tony Blair's interfaith Faith 
Foundation, the Roman Catholic-rooted  liberation theology, and Purpose Driven/Emergent 
church/missional model.

Can you see how the Church has moved from freedom to servitude? Christians are slowly being
brainwashed to think like Communists.[13] Some in Christianity have traditionally viewed our service
to God as an act of slavery, taking the ancient images of slavery and superimposing them onto modern
Christianity. Their is a notion that our normal relationship and service to God should be that of a slave to
a master, instead of that of a child of God responding out of love and gratitude to a good God. In reading
the following verse, being slaves is not the picture of what Jesus described to us of who we are. He does
desire our obedience and service, but it is in our freedom that we do so.
 "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the 
servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have 
heard of my Father I have made known unto you.John 15:13-15

Leadership Network
Church planting goals, sales tactics, and community "good works" outreach goals sound as 
though they are biblical, but actually spill over into a goal of reaching the local community 
with the totalitarian agenda of Communitarianism. They are using the concepts developed 
by the Leadership Network, whose goal it is to reach your church's global missions program.

(Our Comments:
See our previous post: 
in which we pointed out:
"What in the world is going on?
    Do pastors learn this way of "doing" church from their seminary training? In part, yes. 
The other source is perhaps Rick Warren via Peter Drucker. Another would be the church 
growth methods of the "Leadership Network" for so-called "next 
generation pastors" running multi-site church "campuses" into change agents (facilitators) 
as described in:
See YouTube videos from Leadership Network Channel:

Leadership Network promo 2013:

Communal Morphing by Steve Saccone:

    To quote the Leslies again: "Drucker has dedicated much effort into bringing the church 
into conformance with the “systems” model of governance, which is known as Total Quality 
Management in the corporate world.""In this model, parishioners are “customers.” "The 
focus shifts to “outcomes” which means that people will have to be held “accountable” for 
“performance.”" "Peter Drucker grew up under the influence of the German philosophies of 
the 1800s." "The Corporate and the Church subsume their identities and comfortably merge 
with State into one comprehensive “system” of governance for mankind.")

The Leadership Network's logo symbolizes the interconnecting network of feudalism. "The Feudal 
system had a ruling class who owned all the land and wealth, and provided security and safety to 
all the serfs. In turn the serfs provided work and servitude to their master. But many people do 
not realize the collective aspect of how serfs lived together.[14]" 

While watching the video, take note of the "global message," the use of Socialist Peter Drucker's name
(founder of the Purpose Driven model), the concern for sustainability, their use of guided solutions,
and the desire to change the world.

Then there is this video by the Leadership Network. Note as they speak about social justice. I should
mention first that the phrase "social justice" was coined by a Jesuit, and "is a part of Catholic social teaching,
the Protestants' Social Gospel. It is one of the Four Pillars of the Green Party upheld by green parties 
worldwide. Social justice is a secular concept, distinct from religious teachings, emerged mainly in the late
twentieth century, influenced primarily by philosopher John Rawls. [15]" In case you don't know, the
Jesuits lead the counter reformation and the Reconstruction movement of the Roman Catholic Church,
and are Dominionists.

And this one on community engagement being a mission for God.
See explanation of "cross domain" at the 8 minute mark especially:

Service Projects

Community service and Christian service projects are good things to do. Seeing the lives of 
the lost being touched by these projects is also good. Giving to the poor, needy, and 
oppressed is called for in the Bible. But we should not be ignorant of the fact that something 
greater is presently taking place. We should not be reluctant to question the change in the 
overall mission of the church, and try to see how it fits into the big world picture, even if they 
mention a generic "God" and say the Gospel is being preached.
See our notes above about the: 
"Good Neighbors Home Repair" 
Willowdale Chapel at:

Most of us have been taught not to make waves, be compliant, and not question authority, since it is
viewed by some to be sinful to disagree. We must understand that there is nothing wrong with questioning
what the church experts claim - since they are fully capable of being wrong. Many times this includes how
they use scripture.

Communitarian ideology has infiltrated the corporate Church, making it completely acceptable 
to become servants to the world. As their indoctrinating educational church materials continue 
to flood the Church, positions will continue to move believers from the socially conservative 
camp to the Communitarian camp, whether they realize it or not. As long as church members 
internalize the values of what they are being taught by these fraudulent evangelism experts, 
they will always fall prey to those who have grander ideas.

Perhaps we should consider these verses about helping the needy.
Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your 
Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as 
the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto 
you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand 
doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee 
Could it be that when we help the poor, needy, and oppressed, that we do it in secret? Perhaps we should 
question whether these open acts of service are to be done on an individual basis among the Body of Christ 
first, then serving unbelievers who are open to the Gospel, second. Has the church considered that the 
people in their own congregation may be in need nearly as much as the heathen people in far-off lands? 
This is just one example of a possible inconsistency in the way we are doing things today in the church. 
It seems to me that helping those in private shows far more of a heart of compassion than that of an army 
of follower volunteers. If we are compassionate, we will help them without the group.

The following is a list of social justice issues. It is only an excerpt of a greater list from a Catholic university

Catholic Social Justice Issues
  • Access to food, clean water and shelter 
  • Community: promotion of the common good, e.g. education 
  • Development of poor countries in an effort to alleviate human misery 
  • Dignity of the human person from creation: abortion; euthanasia; the death penalty 
  • Family-friendly economic policy—where does the US stand in this regard? 
  • Global responsibility for alleviation of economic inequality 
  • Human dignity: how poverty affects human rights 
  • Marginalization of the poor 
  • Pacifism, disarmament 
Children's Rights
  • Exploitation of children 
  • Child soldiers in Uganda 
  • Child workers enslaved on chocolate farms in Ivory Coast 
  • Child workers in India 
  • Human trafficking – prostitution 
  • Right to free education 
  • Right to adequate healthcare 
  • Rights and their corresponding social responsibilities
Climate Change
  • Climate change inequitably impacts developing countries 
  • Help is needed to adapt to climate change—technology, policy, etc. 
  • Effect of sea level rise to small island nations, e.g.
  • Enable the most vulnerable states and populations to become more resilient to climate change by 
  • mitigation and adaptation 
Criminal Justice 
  • Challenges of terrorism: extraordinary rendition, torture and unlawful detention 
  • Death penalty / capital punishment 
  • Human trafficking 
  • Police powers and human rights 
  • Prisoners’ rights 
  • Racial profiling 
When Christians walk through the doors of a church, they would never anticipate that they would be
intentionally deceived by a political agenda, no matter how subtle it is. This is why Communitarianism is
so cleverly disguised. It combines the believers desire to spread the good news, alongside the political
objective of creating a collectivist mindset. It is truth mixed with lies, and made to appear biblical.

As these church volunteer/service projects continue, allow my words to challenge you in determining how
participating in Christian community projects are part of the globalist/Dominionist/Communitarian plan to
transform the world. God's Word was intended to mean something very specific, but change agents have
seen the opportunity to manufacture this ingenious plan of the Enemy. Not only does it provide the
opportunity to create world socialism, but also a future false great awakening to accept a false messiah
figure. It is a conspiracy, and it's real.

It is a global deception...

"The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD
and against his anointed, saying, 'Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from 
us.' He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them inderision.Psalm 2:2-4

...and the Church is participating in it.

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing 
if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according 
to their works." 2 Cor. 11:13-15

Need I say more.
