Why did the young man who gunned down nine black Christians at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina? According to a recent Fox News report, he believes blacks are taking over the world. Having acculturated himself in neo-Nazism, Ku Klux Klan history, and other radical viewpoints, he may have seen the success of various successful black people in entertainment, music, business and politics including Pres. Obama as the decline of white race. However, Black people enjoying success should be applauded not seen as threat. The potential demise of the white race is a demographic issue. The western white reproductive rate has been below the sustainability threshold for many years.

On a larger scale, Muslim accusation of a Jewish conspiracy to take-over the world continues to inspire anti-Semitism around the world. Before the revolutions in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia’s state news paper was publishing the same accusations.

The fear of world domination by white people originated with Western elites and has in many ways succeeded. An article in the Salon points to evidence rooted in post-World War II the development of Nato, European Union, World Bank, United Nation, and similar international institutions. There influence and control has made success possible.

Whether today’s jihadists (ISIS) are reacting to a perceived threat of world domination of the Jews or the obvious success of Western control or both, they are showing how Islam may take-over the world to achieve the goal of converting all infidel people in all nations, establishing the Caliphate, and ushering in the end-time Imam/Messiah. (See interview of ISIS fighter in Rudaw and ISIS’s 5-Year Plan for world domination in the Daily Mail.)

What all of the above have in common is the fear of a world dictator whether black, White, Jew or Muslim. If one were to dig deeper, the respective group’s Messiah always turns out to be a global dictator. The only difference among religious and secular versions (Alexander the Great, Stalin, Lennin, Mao, Hitler, etc.) is whether a Messiah is to come or the Messiah has arrived.

In whatever way globalism and related movements produce a world dictator (anti-Christ), Christians believe the Jewish Messiah, Jesus, will return and through him God will establish His reign on earth. A type of societal reboot to a truly just and free society once again based on redemptive justice and divine rule, something human beings continue to prove they are incapable of accomplishing. In the meantime, Christianity seeks to accomplish its commissioned goals of making all people disciples of their Lord and Messiah and assisting all nations become conforming members of God’s kingdom now. This they do not by violence or political control (although Christianity attempted it during the Middle Ages) but by acts of kindness, missions of mercy, works of justice, godly counsel, testimony and evidence of divine power, and education in the ways and moral laws of Christ and God.

U.S. Troops Should Protect Iraqi Christians March 20, 2008

You don’t have to be a member of the far-left to question what has happened in Iraq since the U.S. invasion in 2003. During Holy Week, we should all consider the plight of Iraqi Christians and their possible extinction. This is something we can do something about. We should demand that the White House immediately order U.S. troops in Iraq to protect the remnants of the Christian community.

There were nearly a million Christians in Iraq before the war and about half of them have left the country. Dozens of Christian churches have been attacked, bombed or destroyed and some Christian children have reportedly been crucified by Islamic terrorists. The Chaldean Catholic Archbishop of Mosul, Paulos Faraj Rahho, was recently kidnapped and murdered. Some Christians left in Iraq don’t go to church for fear of being targeted for death. Some priests don’t wear clerical garb for the same reason. Pope Benedict XVI has pleaded with Bush to do something about the plight of Iraqi Christians. (more…)
