Apostate Christianity


Two-Thirds of Evangelicals Doubt Jesus' Words
Regarding Salvation Through Him Alone

There's a new poll out which points to a growing rejection
among Evangelicals that Jesus is the only way of salvation. For
years, most evangelical Christians have been taught and accepted
the words of Jesus in John 14:6, where He states, "I am the
Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no man cometh unto the Father
but my Me." But now a new Newsweek/Beliefnet poll is showing
a shocking number of people who call themselves evangelical and
born-again have come to reject those words. The question in the
poll read: "Can a good person who isn't of your
religious faith go to heaven or attain salvation, or not?"
According to the poll results of more than 1,000 adults 18 years
of age and older, 68 percent of evangelical Christians believe
"good" people of other faiths can also go to heaven.
Nationally, 79 percent of those surveyed said the same thing,
with an "astounding" 91 percent agreement among
Catholics, notes Beliefnet. Beliefnet spokesman Steven Waldman
calls the results "pretty amazing."

Episcopal Church Turns To Idol Worship

A conservative Anglican activist is criticizing the response
of the Episcopal Church USA (ECUSA) to revelations that two of
its priests embrace the worship of pagan deities. Some members of
the Worldwide Anglican Communion say they are not the least bit
surprised by the latest heresy to surface in the American
Episcopal Church -- a pagan liturgical rite promoted on the
denomination's website. The ECUSA's Office of Women's
Ministries recently touted a resource called the
"Women's Eucharist: A Celebration of the Divine
Feminine," which encourages worship of a so-called
"Queen of Heaven."

U.S. congregations largely ignore the Bible's
teaching about discipline 

The next meeting of the United Methodist Church's highest
tribunal will review an unusual dispute about discipline. It
involves whether the Rev. Edward Johnson should have been put on
forced unpaid leave because he refused a homosexual who wanted to
join his congregation in South Hill, Va. The evangelical Good
News caucus says the gay applicant is living in a relationship
with another man and "unrepentant about his practice"
so Johnson was merely applying Methodism's teaching against
same-sex behavior. But Virginia's Methodist clergy decided
Johnson violated church policy, both in rejecting a homosexual
and in defying directives to accept him that came from the bishop
and district superintendent. The case attracts attention because
it's rare nowadays for a pastor to attempt to bar or
discipline a lay member. U.S. congregations largely ignore the
Bible's teaching about discipline and the result is "the
impending collapse of authentic Christianity in this
generation," asserted the Rev. R. Albert Mohler Jr.,
president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Alarming Number of 'Stayaway Saints' Affecting
Today's Church

An alarming number of Christians are staying home on Sunday
mornings and the trend is affecting today's church. Believers
who have become "stayaway saints" are alternately
worrying and exciting church leaders, pointing to what is being
seen as either a serious threat to the spread of the gospel or
the actual cusp of a revolution that could usher in the sort of
revival many have prayed for and dreamed of for years. A recent
study found that about 13 million Americans whom the researchers
identified as being born again were "unchurched ... not
having attended a Christian church service, other than for a
holiday ... at any time in the past six months."

Nation's Unchurched Doubled in
Decade 

The proportion of Americans who say they have no religious
affiliation doubled over the last decade and now stands at 16% of
the population, according to a new study on religious identity.
Only Catholics (24%) and Baptists (17%) outnumber the so-called
"non-identifiers," or "nones," said the
report. Based on telephone interviews with more than 10,000
randomly selected people, said about one in six answered
"none" or "no religion" or described
themselves as secular, humanist, ethical-culturalist, agnostic or
atheist. Their ranks will continue to grow, and they'll soon
outnumber


Hitler's Gestapo Chief Became Top Truman Advisor


According to Wikipedia, Heinrich Mueller, (b. April 29, 1900) Chief of the
Gestapo and Adolf Eichmann's boss, "disappeared in May
1945 and remains the only senior figure of the Nazi regime who
was never captured or confirmed to have died."

In fact, the Gestapo chief escaped to Switzerland where he worked
for the government under an assumed name. In 1948, the CIA
recruited him as a Soviet counter espionage specialist because
the US government was rife with Communists. Frank Wisner and
James Kronthal hired him for $50K annual salary and a $1 million
signing bonus.

Mueller was soon on a first-name basis with President Harry S.
Truman.. Wearing his Nazi medals, Mueller entertained Truman at
home, played Bach, and gave him stolen art and a case of fine
whiskey. Truman may be his son's godfather.

Mueller came to the US with his Gestapo helpers and soon had
Washington bugged. He spied on his CIA superiors and informed
Truman that they were tapping his phone. He advised Truman on
Soviet intentions during the Korean War based on his contacts
with Soviet spies in Washington, (including Kim Philby) and his
experience as the Communists' Number One Nemesis.

He lived under a Swiss identity, had US army bodyguards and
employed an assassin who immediately dispatched anyone who raised
questions about Mueller's real identity. At least a
half-dozen people met their end in this way.

Mueller's 200-page Journal covering the period March 1949
to Sept 1951 is for sale as a PDF file for $6.25 at

Obviously capable of great ruthlessness, (he boasts of literally
flushing Hitler's would-be assassin down the toilet) Mueller
emerges from these journals as surprisingly civilized, urbane and
intelligent. An accomplished pianist and chess player, he enjoyed
fine art and literature. He was extremely wealthy thanks to gold
and art stolen during the war. One of his CIA functions was to
fence their stolen art. His bosses kept the proceeds.

He says people like Alan Dulles, James Angleton and Frank Wisner
embezzled millions from "top secret" projects. For
example, they pocketed a million dollar bribe to depose the
democratically elected Iranian Prime Minister Mossedagh. Mueller
got a share. A Catholic, Mueller had worked for the Bavarian
State Police and prosecuted Nazis as well as Communists. When the
Nazis came to power, they kept him on the job. He became fiercely
loyal to Adolph Hitler and continued to celebrate the
Fuehrer's birthday in Washington with many highly-placed
Americans.
