Never Discuss Politics or Religion?
How many times have your friends and relatives told you, “I never discuss politics and religion?”
Why is it taboo to discuss religion and politics? I submit the reason is people are brainwashed from their youth into believing this will start an argument causing bad feelings and loss of friendship. Who promotes this lie?
Priests and Politicians!
Because if politics and religion were freely discussed, it would threaten the ruling Politico-Religious Government.
Babylon. The political ruler claimed to be their religious god. He wanted the people to worship him. He had the power of life and death on this earth, and they believed in the next one, too.
Rome. Caesar claimed to be the political and religious ruler of the world, with the power of life and death, here and later, and wanted to be worshipped. He had the final authority in the universe under his sun god.
Greece. Mythological religious figures were instrumental in ruling the world.
Israel. David was political King, a Prophet and a Priest. Priests ruled the people religiously and politically. Not willing to give up their power to worship Jesus, they religiously conspired with Rome—the political power—to put Jesus to death on the cross.
The Roman Catholic Church claims to be the one true religion, and claims political ownership of the whole earth. The Pope claims the title “The Holy Father,” a name that applies only to God Almighty in Heaven. He claims to be the “Vicar of Christ,” which means that he stands in God’s stead as political-religious ruler of the world. People worship him, and trust him and his religion to take them to Heaven when they die. They fight for him to politically take over the world under his final authority—even to the point of wars—like the crusades. Each priest claims political ownership of a particular territory, known as a parish or diocese. They operate public and private schools all over this country, where they teach the students, “don’t discuss politics and religion.”
Hitler wanted to rule the world politically under the Third Reich. He was very religious, heavily involved in occult practices and beliefs, and even signed a concordat with the Roman Catholic Church.
Japan tried to take over Eastern Asia politically, and worships its Emperor as God.
Muslim religious leaders try to politically control the world. They make converts at the edge of a sword, “convert or die!” They have their own schools. They preach, “don’t discuss politics or religion.” They kill missionaries who care enough to preach the truth to their people. They don’t want to give up their politico-religious authority to non-Muslims. They will go to war to increase their kingdom. They lie to their own people saying, “martyrs who kill non-Muslim infidels will go to Heaven.”
All religions preach that their own religious leader will rule the world politically and religiously. They run governments, and war against other countries and religions. Priests don’t want their subjects to discuss religion or politics because it threatens their authority, wealth and power. If their people heard—and believed—the truth, they would overthrow these religious leaders—politically.
In the near future, a charismatic person will win wars to become the head of a one-world government, one-world religion, and one-world economy. He will rule politically over all nations by fear, and demand that everyone worship him as god. He will force everyone to take a mark in their right hand or forehead—so they can be tracked and controlled by a satellite.
Revelation 20:4 which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands
Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
Daniel 11:36 And the king (the Anti-Christ) shall … exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods…
The Devil doesn’t want people to discuss religion and politics, because he is afraid if they learn the truth they will reject religion, and he will lose his political authority over the nations. Anyone who refuses to take his mark and worship him as god will not be allowed to buy, sell, own property, purchase food, nor live. The Bible says about the Devil:
2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world (the Devil) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Finally, the true King of Kings will come from Heaven. He will cast the Devil into the Lake of Fire, judge the nations, set up His kingdom, and rule politically from David’s throne forever.
Revelation 19:15…he should smite the nations: and…rule them with a rod of iron…
Revelation 19:16 (Jesus)…KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. …19And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him … 20And the beast was taken, and…the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Will you refuse to discuss religion and politics? Will you continue to blindly serve religion and fight wars to establish the Devil’s temporary political kingdoms? Or, will you discuss politics and religion so you can hear—and then believe—the truth? Will you then study—and preach—the true King?
Politics is the study of government ruling over people. When Jesus returns He will be the perfect political ruler of His government, the Kingdom of Heaven (a political kingdom).
Isaiah 9:6…and the government shall be upon his shoulder…7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom…
Revelation 11:15 The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
Jesus will be the true politico-religious ruler. The Devil always counterfeits and usurps!
The Kingdom of God is a spiritual kingdom. Jesus will always be the King of this kingdom.
Religion is man’s attempt to justify himself to God by his own good works. Since it is impossible to justify yourself to God for your good works, all religion is of the Devil, because it teaches that man can earn his way to Heaven. He can’t!
Salvation is realizing that you are first lost, and in need of a new spiritual birth. Second, you must realize that you need a saviour, and that God provided one, Jesus. God imparts the new birth and eternal life—by His grace—when He knows that you believe that Jesus alone paid the price for your sin at Calvary with His own blood. You must believe that even one drop of trusting in your own self-righteousness will send you straight to Hell! You must believe that Jesus did it all for you.
You are responsible for where you spend eternity: with the Devil in Hell, or with Jesus.
Study. Listen. Ask God to show you the truth. Believe it, and tell others.
Discuss religion and politics.
Act civil, and don’t get mad or get your feelings hurt. Communicate like gentlemen.
Realize that religion and salvation are as far apart as East is from West.
Realize that religion will not take you to Heaven—You must be born again.
Realize that the true government will be founded when the Governor shows up!
The next time someone tells you, “I don’t discuss religion and politics!” tell them why.
Time is short!
