  • 40 Statistics About The Fall Of The U.S. Economy That Are Almost Too Crazy To Believe

    If you know someone that actually believes that the U.S. economy is in good shape, just show them the statistics in this article. When you step back and look at the long-term trends, it is undeniable what is happening to us. We are in the midst of a horrifying economic decline that is the result of decades of very bad decisions. 30 years ago, the U.S. national debt was about one trillion dollars. Today, it is almost 17 trillion dollars.

    40 years ago, the total amount of debt in the United States was about 2 trillion dollars. Today, it is more than 56 trillion dollars. At the same time that we have been running up all of this debt, our economic infrastructure and our ability to produce wealth has been absolutely gutted. Since 2001, the United States has lost more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities and millions of good jobs have been shipped overseas. Our share of global GDP declined from 31.8 percent in 2001 to 21.6 percent in 2011. The percentage of Americans that are self-employed is at a record low, and the percentage of Americans that are dependent on the government is at a record high. The U.S. economy is a complete and total mess, and it is time that we faced the truth.
    The following are 40 statistics about the fall of the U.S. economy that are almost too crazy to believe...
    #1 Back in 1980, the U.S. national debt was less than one trillion dollars. Today, it is rapidly approaching 17 trillion dollars...
    National Debt
    #2 During Obama's first term, the federal government accumulated more debt than it did under the first 42 U.S presidents combined.
    #3 The U.S. national debt is now more than 23 times larger than it was when Jimmy Carter became president.
    #4 If you started paying off just the new debt that the U.S. has accumulated during the Obama administration at the rate of one dollar per second, it would take more than 184,000 years to pay it off.
    #5 The federal government is stealing more than 100 million dollars from our children and our grandchildren every single hour of every single day.
    #6 Back in 1970, the total amount of debt in the United States (government debt + business debt + consumer debt, etc.) was less than 2 trillion dollars. Today it is over 56 trillion dollars...
    Total Debt
    #7 According to the World Bank, U.S. GDP accounted for 31.8 percentof all global economic activity in 2001. That number dropped to 21.6 percent in 2011.
    #8 The United States has fallen in the global economic competitiveness rankings compiled by the World Economic Forum for four years in a row.
    #9 According to The Economist, the United States was the best place in the world to be born into back in 1988. Today, the United States is only tied for 16th place.
    #10 Incredibly, more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have been permanently shut down since 2001.
    #11 There are less Americans working in manufacturing today than there was in 1950 even though the population of the country has more than doubled since then.
    #12 According to the New York Times, there are now approximately 70,000 abandoned buildings in Detroit.
    #13 When NAFTA was pushed through Congress in 1993, the United States had a trade surplus with Mexico of 1.6 billion dollars. By 2010, we had a trade deficit with Mexico of 61.6 billion dollars.
    #14 Back in 1985, our trade deficit with China was approximately 6million dollars (million with a little "m") for the entire year. In 2012, our trade deficit with China was 315 billion dollars. That was the largest trade deficit that one nation has had with another nation in the history of the world.
    #15 Overall, the United States has run a trade deficit of more than 8 trillion dollars with the rest of the world since 1975.
    #16 According to the Economic Policy Institute, the United States is losing half a million jobs to China every single year.
    #17 Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs.
    #18 At this point, an astounding 53 percent of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year.
    #19 Small business is rapidly dying in America. At this point, only about 7 percent of all non-farm workers in the United States are self-employed. That is an all-time record low.
    #20 Back in 1983, the bottom 95 percent of all income earners in the United States had 62 cents of debt for every dollar that they earned. By 2007, that figure had soared to $1.48.
    #21 In the United States today, the wealthiest one percent of all Americans have a greater net worth than the bottom 90 percent combined.
    #22 According to Forbes, the 400 wealthiest Americans have more wealth than the bottom 150 million Americans combined.
    #23 The six heirs of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton have as much wealth as the bottom one-third of all Americans combined.
    #24 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 146 million Americans are either "poor" or "low income".
    #25 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 49 percent of all Americans live in a home that receives direct monetary benefits from the federal government. Back in 1983, less than a third of all Americans lived in a home that received direct monetary benefits from the federal government.
    #26 Overall, the federal government runs nearly 80 different "means-tested welfare programs", and at this point more than 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one of them.
    #27 Back in 1965, only one out of every 50 Americans was on Medicaid. Today, one out of every 6 Americans is on Medicaid, and things are about to get a whole lot worse. It is being projected that Obamacare will add 16 million more Americans to the Medicaid rolls.
    #28 As I wrote recently, it is being projected that the number of Americans on Medicare will grow from 50.7 million in 2012 to 73.2 million in 2025.
    #29 At this point, Medicare is facing unfunded liabilities of more than 38 trillion dollars over the next 75 years. That comes to approximately$328,404 for every single household in the United States.
    #30 Right now, there are approximately 56 million Americans collecting Social Security benefits. By 2035, that number is projected to soar to an astounding 91 million.
    #31 Overall, the Social Security system is facing a 134 trillion dollar shortfall over the next 75 years.
    #32 Today, the number of Americans on Social Security Disability now exceeds the entire population of Greece, and the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the entire population of Spain.
    #33 According to a report recently issued by the Pew Research Center, on average Americans over the age of 65 have 47 times as much wealth as Americans under the age of 35.
    #34 U.S. families that have a head of household that is under the age of 30 have a poverty rate of 37 percent.
    #35 As I mentioned recently, the homeownership rate in America is now at its lowest level in nearly 18 years.
    #36 There are now 20.2 million Americans that spend more than half of their incomes on housing. That represents a 46 percent increase from 2001.
    #37 45 percent of all children are living in poverty in Miami, more than 50 percent of all children are living in poverty in Cleveland, and about 60 percent of all children are living in poverty in Detroit.
    #38 Today, more than a million public school students in the United States are homeless. This is the first time that has ever happened in our history.
    #39 When Barack Obama first entered the White House, about 32 million Americans were on food stamps. Now, more than 47 million Americans are on food stamps.
    #40 According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the combined populations of "Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming."

    Very well said Ruth, don't forget the George Soros' out there that are actively working to destroy this nation.
    Comment by Ruth Hammons yesterday
    It was the government that pushed welfare on the less educated people by not making them work! Then they let the illegals come in and take more and made it too easy for the lazy to get welfare and on it went!! They WANT us dependent on them and not able to make enough to cover our expenses...that way we are not much more than slaves to do their bidding....I would NOT say that was the people that did not want to work or make a living. It was the government that did not want us to become well off because that meant we would be telling them what to do, instead of the other way around. They do not like being told what to do or being employed by the people, especially if they were people of faith! It is too much fun spending all the taxes, the revenue's and having things the way they want them, instead of keeping the in nation strong, free and the greatest in the world!! The idiots have ruined it all and the world too....a few will be rich, the rest of the world will be dirt poor and surfs to the kings of the empires!!!!! That is the way it always was before America came upon the scene if you recall history! We were the first free nation that made things great in less than 300 years...shorter time that n all the rest of the world combined in all the time they had been before us! That did not sit well with many and they have been trying to take us down ever since....think about it ....not that much time has gone by.......greed, evil, power hunger and foolish thinking has kept the world for almost two thousand years in barbarian life styles and subjugation; now we are subject's of it too!!!..

    Every democracy in history never lasted much past 200 years as the people realize they can live off the government without working

    Raymond's Post.

    Tom's Journal.

    Obama's secret agenda to 'Kill the American Dollar!'  See Video >>> >> Video exposing the EVIL PLAN (click here to watch) <<Raymond's Post: 

    This fine Post is from a fellow combat Veteran, who is also with the TPP's --- The Tea Party Patriots org.   I always try to give people the credit when I borrow their hard work, and even included a Link of this fine Marine.  Today was a good, but somber day for me, and always is. 

    There are plenty of UN-believers in the world who love to throw this following scripture at we Christians, but it doesn't work anymore...   The real truth is that these same folks want to have their 'cake and eat it too.'   They practice gross sin and don't want to ever stop it -- while demanding that we Christians show them respect and honor --  they want to be accepted in polite social society...Ha!  Sorry, we Christians are not perfect or a bunch of 'holy Joes' -- but we choose not to rub elbows with 'unrepentant ' sinners who love  the  EVIL that they do-- making fun of Jesus, our Lord and Saviour.  We don't point any fingers at the wicked -- but we ARE READY WITH THE CORRECT BIBLE VERSES that prove them wrong, and wrong headed...  sorry.  So that is the real deal, and for the record.

    Warm Regards, on this Somber Day of Remembrance and Honor.

    MATTHEW 7:1-2 –– ““Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.””
    First, if we examine the context we see that Jesus is not condemning all judging; He is condemning hypocritical judging (Mat. 7:5). Hypocrisy is a great and deep-seated problem among men and Christ is rebuking it. To forbid something in another person that I allow in my own life is hypocrisy.

    This is not to say, though, that Christ is forbidding judging in general. That He is not condemning all judging is evident from the context. In the same sermon He warned about false teachers and false brethren.
    “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit” (Mat. 7:15-17).

    “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Mat. 7:21-23).
    It is impossible to beware of false prophets and false brethren without judging doctrine and practice by the God’s Word.

    That Christ is not condemning all judging is also evident by comparing Scripture with Scripture. In other passages we are commanded to judge. We are to judge righteous judgment (Jn. 7:24).
    We are to judge sin in the church (1 Cor. 5:3, 12). “For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, ... For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?”

    We are to judge matters between the brethren (1 Cor. 6:5). “I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?”

    We are to judge preaching (1 Cor. 14:29). “Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.”

    We are to judge those who preach false gospels, false christs, and false spirits (2 Cor. 11:1 -4). “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”

    We are to judge the works of darkness (Eph. 5:11). “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

    We are to judge spirits (1 John 4:1). “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”

    We are even to judge all things (1 Cor. 2:15-16). “But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”

    The spiritual man does not judge all things by his own thinking but by the mind of Christ in the Word of God. He knows that he lives in a fallen world filled with lies and error and spiritual deception and he knows that he has the light of God in the Scripture and he thus judges all things by that.
    The following addition study on judging is by the late Franklin G. Huling:
    This question, Is it right to judge? is one that puzzles many sincere Christians. A careful and open-minded study of the Bible makes it clear that concerning certain vital matters, it is not only right but a positive duty to judge. Many do not know that—

    The Lord Jesus Christ commanded, “Judge righteous judgment” (John 7:24). He told a man, “Thou hast rightly judged” (Luke 7:43). To others, our Lord asked, “Why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?” (Luke 12:57).
    The Apostle Paul wrote, “I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say” (1 Corinthians 10:15). Again, Paul declared, “He that is spiritual judgeth all things” (1 Corinthians 2:15). It is our positive duty to judge.

    “Beware of false prophets!” (Matthew 7:15) is the warning and command of our Lord. But how could we “beware” and how could we know they are “false prophets” if we did not judge? And what is the God-given standard by which we are to judge? “To the Law and to the Testimony: if they speak not according to THIS WORD, it is because there is NO LIGHT in them” (Isaiah 8:20). “Ye shall know them by their fruits,” Christ said (Matthew 7:16). And in judging the “fruits,” we must judge by God's Word, not by what appeals to human reasoning. Many things seem good to human judgment which are false to the Word of God.

    The Apostle Paul admonished believers, “Now I beseech you, brethren, MARK THEM which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and AVOID THEM. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” (Romans 16:17- 18). This apostolic command could not be obeyed were it not right to judge. God wants us to know His Word and then test all teachers and teaching by it. Notice also that it is the false teachers who make the “divisions,” and not those who protest against their false teaching. And these deceivers are not serving Christ, as they profess, “but their own belly,” or their own “bread and butter as we would put it. We are to “MARK THEM” and “AVOID THEM.”

    “Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 6:17; read also verses 14-18)

    “From such turn away” (2 Timothy 3:5). “Withdraw yourselves.” (2 Thessalonians 3:6)

    “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” (Ephesians 5:11)

    “ABHOR THAT WHICH IS EVIL; CLEAVE TO THAT WHICH IS GOOD.” (Romans 12:9) “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

    It would be impossible to obey these injunctions of God's Word unless it were right to judge. And remember, nothing is “good” in God's sight that is not true to His Word.
    The Apostle John wrote, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try (test, judge) the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world” (1 John 4:1). Again he wrote, “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh... If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, RECEIVE HIM NOT into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds” (2 John 7, 10-11). This Scripture commands us to judge between those who do and those who do not bring the true doctrine of Christ.
    Whenever a child of God contributes to a denominational budget that supports Modernist missionaries or teachers, he is guilty before God, according to this Scripture, of bidding them “God speed” in the most effective way possible. And he thereby becomes a “partaker” with them of their “evil deeds” of spreading soul-damning poison. How terrible, but how true! Arouse yourself, child of God. If you are guilty, ask God to forgive you and help you never again to be guilty of the blood of souls for whom Christ died. When we are willing to suffer for Christ, we can readily see the truth of God's Word on this tremendously important matter. “If we suffer, we shall also reign with Him” (2 Timothy 2:12).

    One of the best known and most important and misapplied Scriptures is “Judge not” (Matthew 7:1). Let us examine the entire passage:
    “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considereth not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? THOU HYPOCRITE, first cast the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.” (Matthew 7:1-5)
    Read this again carefully. Notice that it is addressed to a hypocrite—not to those who sincerely want to discern whether a teacher or teaching is true or false to God's Word. And instead of being a prohibition against honest judgment, it is a solemn warning against hypocritical judgment. In fact, the last statement of this Scripture commands sincere judgment—”Then thou shalt see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.”
    IF WE TAKE A VERSE OR A PART OF A VERSE OUT OF ITS SETTING, WE CAN MAKE THE WORD OF GOD APPEAR TO TEACH THE VERY OPPOSITE OF WHAT IT REALLY DOES TEACH. And those who do this cannot escape the judgment of God for twisting His Word (2 Peter 3:16). Let this be a warning to us never again to take a text or Scripture out of its context.
    Many who piously quote, “Judge not,” out of its connection, in order to defend that which is false to God's Word, do not see their own inconsistency in thus judging those who would obey God's Word about judging that which is untrue to the Bible. It is tragic that so much that is anti- Scriptural has found undeserved shelter behind a misuse of the Scripture just quoted.
    The reason Christendom is today honeycombed and paralyzed by Satanic Modernism is because Christians have not obeyed the command of God's Word to judge and put away and separate from false teachers and false teaching when they first appeared in their midst. Physical health is maintained by separation from disease germs. Spiritual health is maintained by separation from germs of false doctrine. The greatest peril of our day is not too much judging, but too little judging of spiritual falsehood. God wants His children to be like the noble Bereans who “searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so” (Acts 17:11).
    Romans 2:1-3 is also addressed to the religious hypocrite who condemned himself because he was guilty of the same things for which he condemned others. James 4:11-12 refers to an evil spirit of backbiting and fault finding, not to judging whether teachers or teachings agree or disagree with God's Word. The Bible never contradicts itself. To understand one portion of Scripture we must view it in the light of all Scripture. “No prophecy of the Scripture is of any private (isolated) interpretation” (2 Peter 1:20).

    “Comparing spiritual things (words) with spiritual” (1 Corinthians 2:13).
    The “Wheat and the Tares” parable of Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43, is also much misunderstood. First of all, our Lord is talking about the world, not His Church—”the field is the world.” He goes on to say that “the good seed are the children of the Kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one.” (Matthew 13:38). They are the two groups in the world, children of God— those who have received Christ (John 1:12), and the children of the devil—those who reject Christ (John 8:44). When any of the “children of the wicked one” get into the professed church of Christ, as they have always done, a definite procedure for God's children is set forth in His Word. First, it is their duty to tell them that they have “neither part nor lot” in Christ (see Acts 8:21-23 and context). If the children of the devil do not leave voluntarily, as is generally the case, God's children are commanded to “purge out” these unbelievers (1 Corinthians 5:7). But God's people have disobeyed His Word about this, and so unbelievers have gotten into control, as is now the case in most denominations. Therefore, those who purpose to be true to Christ and His Word are commanded to “come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord” (2 Corinthians 6:17), regardless of property or any other considerations. When we obey God's Word, we can trust Him to take care of all the consequences of our obedience.

    Immoral conduct of professed believers in Christ is to be judged. 1 Corinthians chapter 5 tells a sad story and closes with the Apostolic injunction, “Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person” (2 Corinthians 5:13).
    Disputes between Christians concerning “things that pertain to this life” (1 Corinthians 6:3) should be judged by a tribunal of fellow Christians instead of going before unbelievers in the civil courts. The whole sixth chapter of 1 Corinthians makes clear God's plan for His people in this regard. And some startling truths are here revealed: First, “the saints shall judge the world.” Second, “we shall judge angels” (1 Corinthians 6:2- 3). Beloved, are we letting God prepare us for this high place?
    We ought to judge ourselves. “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves” (2 Corinthians 13:5). “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened (child trained) of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world” (1 Corinthians 11:31-32). What a change and what a blessing it would be if we would judge our own faults as uncharitably as we do the faults of others—and if we would judge the failings of others as charitably as we do our own! And Christians could save themselves much chastening of the Lord if they would judge and confess and cease their disobedience to God. And, O, how much dishonour and lack of fruit would our blessed Lord be spared!

    We are not to judge scruples. God forbids our judging our brethren concerning the eating of certain kinds of food, keeping of days, etc. Romans chapter 14; 1 Corinthians 10:23-33; and Colossians 2:16-17 cover this subject.
    We are also not to judge motives. See 1 Corinthians 4:1-5. Only God can see into the heart and know the motives that underlie actions.
    We are also not to judge who is saved. “The Lord knoweth them that are His” (2 Timothy 2:19). We cannot look into anyone's heart and say whether or not they have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, if they profess that they have. But we had better test ourselves according to 2 Corinthians 5:17: “If any man be IN CHRIST, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” If this change has not taken place, our profession is vain.

    The New Testament Greek word that is most often translated “judge” or “judgment” is “krino.” On the one hand, it means to distinguish, to decide, to determine, to conclude, to try, to think and to call in question. That is what God wants His children to do as to whether preachers, teachers and their teachings are true or false to His Word.
    The Apostle Paul writes: “And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; that ye may approve things that are excellent” (Philippians 1:9-10). A wrong idea of love and lack of knowledge and judgment causes God's people often to approve things that are anything but excellent in God's sight. The epistle to the Hebrews tells us that mature believers, that is, those who are of “full age,” are those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil” (Hebrews 5:14).
    On the other hand, the Greek word “krino”—judge or judgment—means to condemn, to sentence, and to punish. This is God's prerogative, for He has said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, saith the Lord” (Romans 12:19).
    Thus Christians are to exercise discernment, but not vengeance.

    Christians should watch against the tendency of the flesh to assume a critical and censorious attitude toward those who do not share our opinions about other matters than those which have to do with Bible doctrine and moral conduct. Rather than “pick to pieces” our brethren in Christ, it is our privilege and duty to do everything we can to encourage their spiritual upbuilding. We ought to love and pray for one another and consider ourselves lest we be tempted.

    If you are saved, let us not forget that “we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ” (2 Corinthians 5:10). It will be well with those who are studying God's Word, walking in the light of it, living for Christ and the salvation of souls. It will go ill with those who have accepted Christ but who are living for the things of this world.
    If you are a mere professor of Christ, or profess nothing, my friend, may I lovingly remind you that “judgment must begin at the house of God; and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel?” (1 Peter 4:17). Delay not another moment to ask God for Christ's sake to forgive your sins. Surrender your heart and will to the loving Saviour who died for you. Make Him the Lord of your life. Happy and blessed will you be, now and forever.
    For more on verses misused by the ecumenical movement see commentaries on 1 Sam. 24:4-10; 18:15-17; Mk. 9:38-40; John 13:35; 17:21; Acts 5:38-39; Rom. 14:4; James 4:1.
    MATTHEW 7:15-17 —— ““Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.””

    The chief fruit of a false teacher is false teaching, error, and heresies. See Acts 20:30; Rom. 16:17; Gal. 1:6-7; 1 Tim. 4:1; 2 Pet. 2:1; 1 John 4:1-2. There are different classes of false teachers described in the New Testament. One type is characterized by a moral life of Christian service. I believe this is what Matthew 7 describes by referring to the “sheep’s clothing” (v. 15) and the “many wonderful works” (v. 22). This is the outward life and service. Inwardly, though, this false teacher is unregenerate and subverted (Titus 3:10-11) and given to cunning craftiness (Eph. 4:14). Another type of false teacher described in the New Testament brings reproach to the cause of Christ by his debauched lifestyle. This is what we see in 2 Peter 2:2,14,18,19 and Jude 4,10,19. Examples would be an adulterous modernist or a homosexual Catholic priest or a liberal divorced ecumenist who gets drunk and visits prostitutes or has a live-in girlfriend or boyfriend. The one thing that characterizes both types of false teacher, though, is false teaching, error, heresies. We must not merely look at the outward life of the teacher, but we must carefully compare his teaching with the Word of God, particularly what he believes about Jesus Christ and the Gospel and the Bible.

    Hi Raymond,
    That was a great [and important] POST !! So many critics who want to be "accepted" even as they PRACTICE gross sins, and they demand respect -- so they will MIS-USE this scripture at Matthew 7: 1,2 ! And that is prob. the full extent of their Bible knowledge... lol. You nailed it, good buddy!! Thank you!. I may want to borrow your writings again, while giving YOU the credit for putting it together, of course. You are a smart man, who paid his dues, and you have my respect. --Tommy Schuckman --Disabled Vietnam Veteran: 68-70. Today is very special to me.
