FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, YOU WILL BE ON
This is David Bay, Director of Old Paths Ministries.
And this is the Cutting Edge, a radio program dedicated to warning and informing God's people. We are committed to the study and exposition of the inerrant, inspired and authoritative Word of God. The views expressed belong to us, and are not necessarily shared by this station.
Our society is deteriorating, and Bible-believing Christians are ill-prepared to face that deterioration. This radio program is dedicated to preparing God's people to meet the challenges of the Day, and to encourage obedience to the Word of God in being separated from worldliness and false doctrine.
The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented.
Few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the eyes of God, through the Bible, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always do try to here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.
Now consider the following news briefs:
Three weeks ago, we showed that America has rejected our traditional Christian Values Foundation, replacing it with a Satanic Values Foundation. Once we view our daily news with this focus, we can easily see why we are facing daily crimes of great variety and incredible atrocity. But, this is only part of the horror; the rest of the story is that most Americans subscribe to many Values of Satanism without realizing that they have also fallen victim to this trap. To quickly review:
Again, we quote the Satanic Bible, the most common Values:
The elevation of these Satanic values to the level of encouraging its members to deliberately indulge in them has produced tremendous societal effects:
This crisis is all the more sinister because it is invisible to those who have already become captive to its lie. How did we get to this point? Over the next few weeks we will demonstrate a Six-Step Process by which people's attitudes are being changed permanently on a population-wide basis. This process was developed to change those most-deeply held attitudes, which naturally are traditional Christian values. Once you hear this process, and understand the examples of its use, you will realize it is being simultaneously utilized in many areas by the Mass Media.
The Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan works like this:
EXAMPLES: 1. DRUG LEGALIZATION
Did you realize that Government officials and members of the media are attempting to convince Americans to legalize drugs?
1. According to Newsweek Magazine, December 25, 1989, respected American officials, both liberal and conservative, Republican and Democrat, have begun to call for the legalization of drugs, claiming all our efforts have miserably failed.
The magazine reported the following leaders are on record as favoring the legalization of addictive drugs.
2. At first, the public is shocked and outraged. This outrage has been lead by other respected American officials --
This same Newsweek article reports that former Drug Czar and Secretary of Education, William Bennett as being opposed to drug legalization. At this point, we have a war of words among American leaders.
3. Even discussing drug legalization at such high levels in our government gives the issue a stamp of legitimacy.
4. This war of words provides the sheer repetition necessary to dull the public's opposition.
5. People are now becoming less shocked by the proposal.
6. No longer shocked, the focus of the debate shifts to moderating the extremes of both sides of the debate. We saw this occur during the abortion debate, in the late 1960's. One side of the debate urged for abortion on demand; the other side opposed abortion under any circumstances. The compromise that was reached was to allow abortion under very specific instances, such as endangering the life of the mother. This compromise opened the door to abortion just a crack, and then, in 1973, abortion on demand became the law of the land.
So we can see just as in the case of abortion, a compromise will then be reached that will legalize drugs in a limited manner. Several years later, American public opinion will have been changed sufficiently to allow for ever-wider legalization. (This point is very key: Limited acceptance of the controversial proposal is always fatal, because it opens the firmly-shut door just a crack. This tiny beginning then allows the door to be systematically opened wide.)
What is the scope of the current drug problem? When you hear these statistics, understand that the epidemic will inevitably grow much larger once our system legalizes drug abuse.
The SCOPE of the problem:
"...Random lab tests show virtually EVERY AMERICAN BILL IN CIRCULATION bears microscopic traces of cocaine. That amounts to 12 billion bills worth $230 billion."
Every nation in history has had some drug usage, but NOTHING with this MAGNITUDE.
Pastor, this statistic means that you and your parishioners bring cocaine into Church every Sunday morning!! Shame on you!!
Now consider these other ways in which the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan is being utilized:
EXAMPLES: 2. CHANGING SEXUAL PREFERENCES
TV, Newspapers, and Magazines are strongly supporting the campaign for public acceptance of homosexuality. TV shows, movies, and articles in printed media have been consistently presenting a picture of validity and normalcy in the homosexual lifestyle. Simultaneously, Governmental Agencies, certain elected officials, and our courts have been actively re-shaping laws which promote this normalcy theme. Clearly, our entire society is moving rapidly and strongly toward full acceptance, and Mass Media is leading the charge.
Remember Sodom and Gomorrah? (Genesis 18:16-19:29). God's actions amount to a NATIONAL capital execution. Consider the scene: God's Holy Angels, bodily incarnated as men, visit Lot's house to warn him to flee Sodom before God's physical judgment falls. Homosexual men have seen these angels enter Lot's house, so they surround the house and loudly call to the angels to come outside so they could have homosexual relations with them.
The crowd so openly propositioned the angels, they must not have been afraid of being arrested. Why? Obviously because there were no laws prohibiting this solicitation. WHY??
The entire society of Sodom was supportive of homosexual activity. Schools, organized religion, courts, Government, and social organizations of all types, had to have been supportive. God not only condemned this societal support, He physically destroyed the cities in punishment.
We see this kind of societal support for homosexual behavior in America. But, there is more, as Lesbianism is now being promoted in women's magazines, on T.V., and in newspapers.
We have gone through all 6 steps of the Plan are now in the process of opening the door wide.
Today, we see a steady Mass Media drumbeat to convince Americans that traditional Judeo-Christian values governing heterosexual relationships is out-of-date and has been replaced. Thus, we see TV sitcoms which depict couples living together without being married and even raising children together.
We see entire magazines devoted to the advancement of the successful single life-style, even to the point of denigrating the Christian stay-at-home mother. Examples of these magazines are Ms., Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and Vogue.
Newspapers feature article after article which depict real-life situations in which men and women, living together without being married, appear happy and prosperous.
Pornography is the avenue by which the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan has traditionally worked in America. Both mediums of printed material and video material has changed the values of many. Now, in the early 1980's the time had arrived to go nation-wide. Thus, video rental stores carry a wide range of X-rated videos, magazines are available at your drugstore, and cable TV now is showing X-rated movies. All the mediums of Mass Media are now running many articles on real-life stories of sexual perversions. Even when the tone of the article is negative, even horrific, sheer repetition is at work. Thus, a story about Jeffrey Dahmer killing and eating homosexual lovers provides the sheer repetition necessary to wear down people's attitudes against homosexuality. This process is shocking and insidious.
EXAMPLE: 3.Advance Deathmaking As Desirable/Noble/Courageous/ Advantageous To Society
Proverbs 8:36, "...all who hate Me, love and court death."
James 1:15a, "...sin, when full grown, gives birth to death."
Americans are being convinced that Individual Euthanasia is a right which society should protect and advance.
News Brief: Time Magazine, 11/4/91, "Last week Dr. Kevorkian... helped two more women kill themselves...Lawmakers and doctors may debate the ethics of euthanasia endlessly, but while that argument un-folds, the activists have again decided to take life-and-death matters into their own hands."
No one would argue that if a terminally ill person in a great deal of pain wants to commit suicide, they should be allowed to do so. How-ever, history in Nazi Germany demonstrated that it is a very short step from Individual Euthanasia to Societal Support For Individual Euthanasia to Governmental Selection For Euthanasia. After the Jewish Holocaust, many Jewish scholars studied German society to discover how the nation of the Martin Luther Christian Tradition could turn into one of the greatest mass killing machines in history. One study, The Nazi Doctors, by Robert Lifton, states emphatically the Nazi Holocaust could never have occurred if the intermediate step of Euthanasia had not first occurred. The individual's "right to die" very quickly became the government's "right to kill".
German Public Opinion was molded by films showing incurable people being "helped" by sympathetic physicians. Medical Committees were set up in local communities comprised of local physicians, to decide whether a person was medically incurable, and thus eligible for euthanasia. German public acceptance for Euthanasia was begun by activist doctors, was promoted by activist doctors, and throughout the Mass Death Camps, was directed by activist doctors. Now, does the activism of Dr. Kevorkian take on new meaning?
4. Reduce "Overpopulation" of the Earth
Item: Constance Cumbey's book, "A Planned Deception", quotes Friends of the Earth chairman, David Browder, discussing earth's over-population, "[There are] six billion people on an earth already overburdened by four billion." New Agers believe the earth can only support two billion people. This goal is to be achieved by the year 2,000, just 8 short years away!!
What are the New Age answers to this `horrible' over-population of the earth? We have listed just two of their answers; please understand they are utilizing the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan to achieve their goal. Remember the supreme importance in this Plan of Point #4, creating a tremendous battle in the media and in the streets between opposing sides. This battle creates the sheer repetition necessary to erode people's opposing attitudes.
When all 6 pints of the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan have properly completed, the door has been opened just a crack to allow the objectionable process and only in certain circumstances. Then, the door is systematically forced open wider and wider, until the point is reached where the formerly objectionable practice is occurring constantly and for whatever reason. Clearly, we have been at this point with Abortion. Since 1973, over 27 million American babies have been killed!! Every abortion prevents the population of the earth from getting larger, thus contributing to their goal of reducing the world's population by two-thirds!
Birth Control, including condoms
TV, newspapers, and magazines of all types are clearly presenting birth control in a manner which advances the over-population agenda. The basic premise is that teens and adults will engage in promiscuous sexual activity, no matter what anyone says. Therefore, we should just make this inevitable activity as safe as possible, to prevent both disease and conception. Very few articles or TV shows ever depict abstinence before marriage or loyalty within marriage as a viable option. The final message going to our young people is that sexual immorality is acceptable as long as you are not caught by the consequences.
We have gone through all 6 steps of the Plan.
The door is now opening wider and wider.
At this point, we need to pause for a Biblical Prophecy check, to see just how this Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan fits into the Biblical Plan. In Matthew 24, Jesus was giving His disciples the many signs by which they would recognize the imminency of His Second Coming. In verse 12, Jesus prophesied, "The love of the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity..." There is no other single prophecy which more convinces me that Jesus' coming is very near. Jesus is saying that the normal sins with which every generation has struggled will be so multiplied in the Last Days that it will chill the love of the great body of people -- an entire population. Certainly, every nation has struggled with the problems which we have discussed today: Drug Abuse, Homosexuality, Heterosexual Sin, Sexual Perversion, Killing of the Innocent. But, only today's American society possesses the Mass Media, which multiplies these sins. Only today's American society has gone absolutely cold toward Jesus Christ in such a short period of time. This prophecy is being fulfilled before our unsuspecting eyes.
We will share with you more instances in which this diabolical Plan is being utilized, but we need to discuss first the coming New World Order. Once you understand the goals of the New World Order, you will more easily see how the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan is so effectively moving America toward Satan's Values. The entire American population is being prepared for the most dramatic change in world history since the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Join us next week for an in-depth look at the New World Order from the dual perspective of New Age writings and Biblical prophecy. This will be a most exciting time, so tell a friend to tune in.
