In recent years the intensity of the attacks on those who are standing against the Christian "unity movement"[1] has grown enormously. These people aren't waiting for the appearance of a Messiah; indeed, quite the opposite - they believe that the earth must first be taken before the Messiah can appear or "come back." The seizure of the earth is, therefore, imperative - by force if necessary! And in order to carry out this "seizure," Christians must first unite. This is the impetus behind the new Christian ecumenicism! Theology doesn't matter! Politics are everything!

Take one example, Paul Crouch of the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). Crouch has said, "... that old rotten Sanhedrin crowd (i.e., those who oppose the "unity movement" for doctrinal reasons - for instance, those who allege the incompatibility of Catholic and evangelical theology), twice dead, plucked up by the roots ... they're damned and on their way to hell and I don't think there's any redemption for them ... the hypocrites, the heresy hunters that want to find a little mote of illegal doctrine in some Christian's eyes ... when they've got a whole forest in their own lives ... I say, to hell with you! Get out of my life! Get out of the way! Quit blockin' God's bridges (of ecumenicism)! I'm tired of this! ... This is in my spirit. Oh Hallelujah ...

"Have you ever seen the old movie, Patton? ... He's my hero, he's my hero. Old nail-chewing, tobacco-chewin', cussin' Patton - but he read the Bible every day. I have a feelin' we'll see old General George in heaven ... There's a wonderful scene in Patton ... they're tryin' to get the Third Army across the bridge in France and there's an old, dumb jackass ... right there on the bridge and it's blockin' the whole convoy of troops ... General George roars up, pulls that ivory-handled revolver out ... and shoots the donkey ... "There's a spiritual application here ... I want to say to all you scribes, Pharisees, heresy-hunters, all of you that are going around pickin' little bits of doctrinal error out of everybody's eyes and dividin' the Body of Christ ... get out of God's way, stop blockin' God's bridges (of unity), or God's goin' to shoot you if I don't ... let Him sort out all this doctrinal doodoo! ... I refuse to argue any longer with any of you out there! Don't even call me if you want to argue ... Get out of my life! I don't want to talk to you ... I don't want to see your ugly face."[2] Now stop just for a moment and think about what Crouch has said here:

  • Those who protest "Political Christianity," specifically, the movement of Christians to work together to "bring America back to Christ and the Church," are damned and on their way to hell!
  • There is no redemption for them.
  • They should be shot for opposing "unity," and if God doesn't do it, Crouch and his ilk will.

So strong has "Political Christianity" become in certain Christian circles today - and most especially in the charismatic community, both Catholic and Protestant - that it seeks to invalidate - usually by subtle ridicule and spurious charges of being "unloving," "divisive," and "harsh" - all evidence which tends to unveil its true political agenda. Christians which aim at "taking back the country for Christ and the Church" are simply not interested in evidence which challenges their agenda, and they do everything in their power to "mask" this evidence from other evangelicals who would otherwise be disposed to act if they really had an opportunity to see the facts. And it cannot be expected that those who believe that "the end justifies the means" will be very scrupulous as to their measures - despite their smiling faces, limp wrists, and sweet protestations to the contrary: hence their violent personal attacks against those who oppose them.

  1. This movement has, in the words of Francis Frangipane, the ultimate aim of "... establishing the Lord's Kingdom on earth" through the creation of a "New Breed" of Christian empowered to physically carry out "God's will" in the "here and now."

We need your help to spread the word concerning Antipas Ministries and the eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN" WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank" insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned - a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners in the abject poverty that American corporations have imposed on the peoples and nations the American military machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE."
