Now it's moved up to the 'criminalization of Christianity'
Screws loose: Janey Folger of Faith2Action.
I posted earlier about the gaggle of AmTaliban that are whining about feeling powerless to stop the perversion of society despite having control of the White House, Congress and a foot into the Supreme Court. Here’s another unhinged fool that clams Christians are headed to jail for their beliefs. What kind of Kool-Aid is she drinking?
Janet Folger of Faith2Action says her predictions in a new book are coming true before our eyes. In her book The Criminalization of Christianity, Folger warns that there is coming a day when believers could face jail for defending their faith and its teachings on homosexuality. She says it appears the day is here; and yet the Church remains silent, for the most part, on the lifestyle God calls an “abomination.” “If the church is going to be silent, this is the issue that’s going to do it,” the activist and author says. “And we as Christians do have the right to remain silent — but I believe if we use that right very much longer, we’re going to be seeing the inside of a prison cell.” Folger maintains the secular culture is trying to demonize the Christian faith. It is time, she says, for believers to get aggressive. “Instead of reacting, responding, and defending a shrinking piece of real estate, if we work together proactively, taking back ground, and focus not on our uniforms but instead on where the battle is the hottest, we actually can win,” she says. “We can use our freedoms while we still have them.”
Meanwhile, fundy (and former Growing Pains star) Kirk Cameron is pouting over that recent Beliefnet poll of Christians that showed a majority feel that people feel folks of other faiths can get into the great beyond.
“If we present the gospel simply as a life improvement program,” he says, “well, boy — there’s lots of things that work to improve your life. You could get into yoga, become a vegetarian.”–Kirk Cameron, “actor” and evangelical
Actor Kirk Cameron, co-producer and host of the evangelical TV show “The Way of the Master,” says he is deeply disturbed by the results of a recent survey, which found lots of people who consider themselves followers of Christ actually believe there are many paths to God. According to the recent Newsweek/Beliefnet poll, 68 percent of evangelical Christians say a “good person” of another faith can get into heaven.
While Cameron is known to many for his roles on the much loved 80’s sitcom Growing Pains and the phenomenally popular apocalyptic thrillers of the Left Behind movie series, for the last several years much of the actor’s time off-screen has been dedicated to the Way of the Master Ministries. Through that evangelistic outreach, he has partnered with evangelist Ray Comfort to teach fellow Christians biblical methods of sharing the gospel and leading the unsaved to Christ.
In light of his heart for the lost and his concern with communicating biblical truth, Cameron finds the results of the recent poll troubling. Christians who claim there is another way to heaven other than Christ need to reexamine their salvation, he says, “because if they don’t understand Jesus is the only way to heaven, then perhaps they don’t understand what it means to really put their faith in Christ alone.”
In the Christian TV host/producer’s opionion, the poll’s outcome is the result of the Church moving away from presenting the gospel biblically. All too often, he asserts, churches and individuals have presented the gospel as a “life improvement” program rather than making it clear that Christ’s finished work on the cross is man’s only hope in the face of a holy and righteous God’s wrath.
Cameron insists that Christians who emphasize God’s love and grace without ever laying the scriptural foundation of redemption — that is, without mentioning sin and the need for repentance — are misrepresenting the Bible’s message of salvation.
