HELL ON EARTH…
One of the nation’s largest homosexual advocacy organizations is greeting Chick-Fil-A’s divestment from Christian charities like the Salvation Army with tepid praise and further demands, including an “unequivocal” denunciation of the brand’s history and values.
GLAAD (whose name is an acronym for its former title, “Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation”) demanded “safe workplaces for LGBTQ employees” and an apparent denunciation of the Christian ministry Focus on the Family, responding to Chick-Fil-A’s decision to stop donating to the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program for needy children and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which serves historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
The full statement from Drew Anderson, GLAAD’s director of campaigns and rapid response, names more steps the fast-food chain must take to prove its genuine repentance:
If Chick-Fil-A is serious about their pledge to stop holding hands with divisive anti-LGBTQ activists, then further transparency is needed regarding their deep ties to organizations like Focus on the Family, which exist purely to harm LGBTQ people and families.
Chick-Fil-A investors, employees, and customers can greet today’s announcement with cautious optimism, but should remember that similar press statements were previously proven to be empty.
In addition to refraining from financially supporting anti-LGBTQ organizations, Chick-Fil-A still lacks policies to ensure safe workplaces for LGBTQ employees and should unequivocally speak out against the anti-LGBTQ reputation that their brand represents.
The Salvation Army expressed dismay Monday afternoon, calling LGBT advocates’ allegations “ill-informed” about the organization’s actual stance:
“We’re saddened to learn that a corporate partner has felt it necessary to divert funding to other hunger, education and homelessness organizations — areas in which The Salvation Army, as the largest social services provider in the world, is already fully committed,” the organization said in a statement Monday afternoon.
The Salvation Army said that it serves more than 23 million individuals a year, including those in the queer community. The group said that it believes it is “the largest provider of poverty relief to the LGBTQ+ population.”
“When misinformation is perpetuated without fact, our ability to serve those in need, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or any other factor, is at risk. We urge the public to seek the truth before rushing to ill-informed judgment.”
The move also sparked a backlash from conservatives, who characterized the decision as a “cave” rather than a prudent olive branch. Christian satire site The Babylon Bee mocked the company’s management with a tongue-in-cheek post titled “Chick-Fil-A Trades Adoring Christian Fans For Outraged Mob That Won’t Be Appeased Until Their Every Demand Is Met.”
“Chick-fil-A has sacrificed its Christian fans in favor of an outraged mob that will stop at nothing to destroy them,” the parody article reads. “[CEO Dan] Cathy said the Christian fans have been great, but it’s boring just having loyal fans who support you through thick and thin, and he’d much rather have fans who stage die-ins and cancel you when you don’t cave in.”
The reference to “die-ins” recalls recent protests against the company as it opens international locations. A grand opening in Toronto, Canada, was met by activists who lay down in front of the store’s entrance — possibly insincere belief of an online hoax claiming Chick-fil-A backed a Ugandan bill that would punish homosexual sex acts with execution.
Last month, Chick-fil-A unsuccessfully tried to open its first location in the United Kingdom. After a pressure campaign from left-wing activists and lawmakers, in a campaign dubbed “Get the Cluck Out,” the Reading, England, the shopping center that hosted this Chick-fil-A store announced it would not renew its six-month lease with the chain.

Sold Out: Chick-Fil-A’s Latest Capitulation Has Them Siding With Lesbians, Sodomites & Transgenders
Nearly all of the writers of the New Testament predicted that changes would occur in key beliefs after their deaths. That person would “fall away” and that “apostasy” would enter the body of believers, we are here.
My how things are going downhill under Chick-fil-A President and Chief Operating Officer Tim Tassopoulos. The business that has been a staple in our culture of how Christian businesses should conduct themselves, has not only embraced and endorsed Common Core, but now has capitulated to the LGBTQE movement with an announcement on Monday that they will no longer support Christian charities that offend those who practice what are still crimes in the states regarding same-relationships, as well as pedophilia. The Great Falling Away
Thus, Chick-fil-A will no longer make donations to charities with “non-diverse” views on human sexuality, the report states, “after years of bad press and protests from the LGBT community.” Incidents, such as a variety of airports denying Chick-fil-A of prime real estate and mass protests against the restaurant chain, have been at the forefront of many Chick-fil-A headlines in recent years.
Tassopoulos told Bisnow “There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message.”
Apparently, Tassopoulos did not know that the Chick-Fil-A message was very clear — that they were going to adhere to, uphold and maintain Christian standards and morals while operating their business! What should be readily clear to those who surround the upper echelon of the Chick-Fil-A corporation is that Tassopoulos should not be steering their ship!
The Standard adds:
Those who will feel this immediately will be those Christian charities who are suddenly cut off from the benevolence of Chick-Fil-A. Bisnow reports that “The new initiative will no longer include donating to organizations like the Salvation Army (who by the way was the point of attack by a two-bit UK singer recently), the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Paul Anderson Youth Home, Chick-fil-A says, all of which sparked criticism in the past from the LGBTQE-E for Evil community due to the organizations’ stances on homosexuality.”
The Salvation Army said in a statement that it was “saddened” by Chick-fil-A’s decision.
“We serve more than 23 million individuals a year, including those in the LGBTQ+ community,” the Salvation Army told FOX Business in a statement. “In fact, we believe we are the largest provider of poverty relief to the LGBTQ+ population. When misinformation is perpetuated without fact, our ability to serve those in need, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or any other factor, is at risk.”
“@ChickfilA had invaluable brand loyalty because of their beliefs and convictions,” Newsmax host John Cardillo wrote on Twitter. “Their customers were brand ambassadors who appreciated that they stood their ground while the rest of corp. America caved to leftist radicals. Now they’re just another fast-food chicken place.”

“Lol. Chick-fil-A’s just abandoned the only people who were defending them against these insatiable woke wolves. Good luck!” conservative commentator Allie Beth Stuckey wrote on Twitter.

Like so many professed Christians, they are willing to abandon the very things they should be standing for, and God won’t be mocked in this instance.
So, why is Chick-Fil-A doing this? I can tell you it has nothing to do with following in the footsteps of Chick-Fil-A founder Truett Cathy and his vision of business honoring God and everything to do with trying to acquire more money apart from honoring God.
Rather, it seems to be an attempt to be all-inclusive and just become another fast-food chain that will not only sacrifice their principles but eventually, they will sacrifice their quality and service as well.
As a matter of fact, once word of this gets out, I submit they will see a tremendous backlash and drop in sales as Christians who are fed up with compromise will cease to patronize a business that sides with those who are at war with their Creator.
Try making that up Chick-Fil-A with that less than 1% of people you are trying to appease.
Here’s the question: What’s next on the compromise list, Mr. Tassopoulos?
Let me guess: Violating the Fourth Commandment and opening up on Sunday. I’m pretty sure that is right around the corner.
Shame on you, Sir!
The Christian Post reached out to Chick-fil-A Monday, asking them to respond to the criticisms that they were compromising their principles in order to appease their ideological opponents.
“Beginning in 2020 the Chick-fil-A Foundation will introduce a more focused giving approach, donating to a smaller number of organizations working exclusively in the areas of hunger, homelessness, and education. We have also proactively disclosed our 2018 tax filing and a preview of 2019 gifts to date on chick-fil-afoundation.org. The intent of charitable giving from the Chick-fil-A Foundation is to nourish the potential in every child,” a Chick-fil-A representative said in a statement emailed to CP Monday.
“Our goal is to donate to the most effective organizations in the areas of education, homelessness, and hunger. No organization will be excluded from future consideration – faith-based or non-faith based,” the spokesperson said, noting “I also wanted to add that Chick-fil-A will not be opening on Sundays.”
According to an exclusive from BisNow Monday, Chick-fil-A was shifting away from its current philanthropic structure to refocus their giving on other causes, specifically education, homelessness and hunger, and would no longer be donating to groups like the Salvation Army, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Paul Anderson Youth Home.
“There’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are,” Chick-fil-A President and Chief Operating Officer Tim Tassopoulos told the outlet.
“There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message.”
He continued: “When there is a tension, we want to make sure we’re being clear. We think this is going to be helpful.”
“It’s just the right thing to do: to be clear, caring, and supportive and do it in the community.”
I’ll add, no one ever said they were not going to contribute to Christian organizations, but the tell-tale sign of who they chose not to contribute to is left unanswered. Furthermore, this claim that they are seeking to “nourish the potential in every child” is in their promotion of Common Core Standards. See the link at the beginning of the article. Clearly, the representative was speaking like a public relations politician and doesn’t really address why they are no longer funding the Salvation Army, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Paul Anderson Youth Home. Source The message still is not clear, Chick-Fil-A…
Conspicuously missing from mainstream media coverage this week has been Chick-fil-A’s decision to revise its charitable giving policy to exclude groups that have remained steadfast and not caved to the so-called LGBTQ agenda. Tuesday during an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN, former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR), who had been an outspoken critic of Chick-fil-A’s decision, elaborated on what he saw as the fast-food restaurant’s motivation.
“Chick-fil-A has decided to allow themselves to be bullied, to allow their enemies — the people who hate them — to dictate where they give their money,” Huckabee said on “The Jeff Poor Show.” “I’m going to be very clear — they have every right to live wherever they want. They don’t have to give at all. They can choose to give to the most liberal or the most conservative organizations. But I was very disappointed that not only did they eventually bow down to the bullies on this, but then they tried to cover themselves by talking about how they had just reevaluated their overall help for education, homelessness, and job help for kids. And I just think that is disingenuous.”
“The bottom line is they caved,” he continued. “They surrendered. I wish they would just be honest about it and say, ‘Despite the fact that millions of people stood up for us when we were bullied before, and came to our defense because they protected our free speech rights and our First Amendment rights of association and religion, we’re going to bow down to the bullies anyway because we want to go into business in some areas where they might create problems for us.’ It’s just a sad day in America. I think people don’t realize that when we surrender to the voices of hostility and hate, they don’t let upon us. They don’t come around to our side. They don’t respect us. They just come back to beat the heck out of us even harder.”
The 2008 and 2016 Republican presidential candidate said those that had once countered a Chick-fil-A boycott would not likely do that again because of the cave.
“This time, I’ll tell you the difference: Many of us who stood with them before and stood in line for hours for a sandwich, we won’t do that again because they’re just another restaurant now,” he said. “They decided they don’t want to be distinct. They don’t want to be unique. I’m waiting — will Colin Kaepernick be their new spokesperson when they announce that they’re going to open on Sundays? Where does this go? Again, they have every right to do what they want, and I think they’re probably doing this to the deep consternation of many of their local managers who typically in every case are wonderful, delightful people who have strong Christian convictions and they do a good job of managing their facilities and serving people with kindness and dignity, no matter who they are. They’re not a discriminating company. They don’t discriminate against anybody. But I don’t believe if Truett Cathy were alive, this is what would have happened.”
Huckabee noted the change came as Chick-fil-A had unprecedented growth that had made the chain the third-largest fast-food restaurant in America, behind only McDonald’s and Starbucks, in addition to having better revenues per store than either of those two chains.
“It wasn’t like they did this because they were failing and had to do it,” he explained. “I think that they’ve been convinced by corporate consultants that this is the direction they need to go. They need to be more woke, and they made this decision. They cast their lot.”
The lack of media attention about Chick-fil-A’s decision was due to the possibility of people giving notice to it, which could impact Chick-fil-A going forward.
“They are on the side of the bullies,” he said. “It is just as simple as that. They’re on the side of the bullies, and for them to call attention to it might rally people like you, me, and many of your listeners, and they don’t want that. They want Chick-fil-A to surrender. They’re proud they did. I was very proud the Salvation Army responded, and they stood up for themselves. This is an attack upon one of the finest Christian organizations in the world that does so many wonderful things very unselfishly.”
Huckabee made it clear he was not calling for a boycott of the chain but said that he thought the decision would hurt its bottom line.
“I’m not telling people to boycott Chick-fil-A,” he said. “I hate boycotts. I think they’re awful. I don’t participate in them. But as far as I’m concerned — they’re just another restaurant these days. They may have been a time when you would go out of your way to go to one, and maybe you still will if that’s your favorite food. But I think what they’ve decided is they don’t want to be that distinct if it is going to cause them trouble or — here’s what’s crazy — if they think it is going to cost them profits. I think this action will cost them far more than if they had stood up for themselves, and frankly, stood up for the Salvation Army, the Paul Anderson Youth Home and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Chick-fil-A is not even hiding the fact it is selling out its faith for a buck, choosing money over Christianity
There’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are,” Chick-fil-A President and Chief Operating Officer Tim Tassopoulos said Monday. “There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message.”
There it is…
Chick-fil-A wants to get into new markets, wants to become even wealthier, and is offering the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes as its sacrifice to the unforgiving bullies in the gay movement.
Keep in mind it is not just about the money, not just about the donations Chick-fil-A will no longer offer these groups.
Oh, no, it is so much more than that.
What Chick-fil-A is doing with this announcement is joining the anti-Christian left in smearing these Christian organizations as hate groups, as bigots.
This is unforgivable.
What a sick betrayal; what a craven, cowardly, greedy, scraping betrayal.
The Salvation Army is not exactly a cultural bomb-thrower. This is a Christian organization that quietly (unless you count those lovely Christmas bells) goes about the business of helping the poor and homeless, and as far as I know, it does not deny help to anyone, no matter what they do with their private parts.
But because the Salvation Army is truly Christian and refuses to embrace the sacramentalization of sin that is same-sex marriage, the LGBTQXYZSUPERCALAFRAJALISTICEXPEALADOCIOUS people have mercilessly bullied the charity, smeared it as a hate group, and now Chick-fil-A has joined the bullying as it publicly sells out this decent Christian charity for only one reason — Chick-fil-A is greedy for more money.
Chick-fil-A is not selling out because the operation is floundering, is on the verge of bankruptcy and maybe worried about keeping its doors opened and its employees employed.
Quite the opposite.
Business is booming at Chick-fil-A. The company is in the best shape ever.
But all that success and wealth is not enough, you see.
The company wants more money, more success, more millions, more billions, and the easiest way to get their hands on more and more and more is to sell out their faith, is to offer the anti-Christian left the bloody heads of the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes … two uncommonly decent organizations that quietly go about the business of doing good work, that have never tossed so much as a firebomb or firecracker into the culture wars.
Another sacrifice Chick-fil-A is making is the trust you and I stupidly offered the company.
Don’t you feel like an asshole now?
Weren’t we the suckers falling for the whole We’re closed on Sunday’s ruse.
And yes, it was all a ruse, a lie, a long con where Chik-fil-A disguised itself as one of us to earn our trust and take our money to achieve its goals. And now that those goals are achieved, the company is greedy for more, and the fastest way to get more is to publicly stab you and I and the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes right in the back.
Chick-fil-A has been exposed as the proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing. For years, millions of Christians have overpaid for chicken sandwiches out of a sense of loyalty to one of the few remaining corporations willing to stand with us. We made Chick-fil-A what it is. We made Chick-fil-A rich. We made Chick-fil-A the third biggest fast-food franchise in the country, but now…
To prove its fealty to the anti-Christian left, to make a few more bucks, Chick-fil-A is bowing and scraping before very people determined to destroy our Faith. Source
Shame on Chick-fil-A forever.
Christless Christianity is a watered-down version of Christianity that is quickly replacing doctrinal purity while professing itself to be biblical. Christless Christianity presents the Bible as if it were a collection of Aesop’s fables—a bunch of unrelated stories with a nice moral at the end of each. Such an approach ignores the grand theme of Scripture—God’s redemption of sinful mankind—and the centrality of Christ in Scripture. Rather than creating self-denying disciples (Matthew 28:19), the message of Christless Christianity creates adherents who are “lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power,” as 2 Timothy 3:4–5 days.
The Bible indicates that there will be a great apostasy during the end times. The “great apostasy” is mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. The KJV calls it the “falling away,” while the NIV and ESV call it “the rebellion.” And that’s what apostasy is: a rebellion, an abandonment of the truth. The end times will include a wholesale rejection of God’s revelation, a further “falling away” of an already fallen world.
The occasion of Paul’s writing to the Thessalonians was to correct some of the errors concerning the end times that the believers had heard from false teachers. Among the falsehoods was that “the day of the Lord has already come” (2 Thessalonians 2:2). The Christians in Thessalonica were afraid that Jesus had already come, they had missed the rapture, and they were now in the tribulation. Paul had already explained the rapture to them in his first letter (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17). Paul writes his second letter to assure them that, contrary to what they had heard, and despite the persecution, they were enduring, the “day of Christ” had not yet come.
Another day, another preacher hypocrite busted on child sex charges. Paul Edward Acton Bowen was arrested on Tuesday and “charged with second-degree sodomy, enticing a child to enter a vehicle or house for immoral purposes, and second-degree sex abuse” of a male minor under the age of 16.
John McFarland at Orangethorpe United Methodist Church.
Fullerton pastor John Rogers McFarland entered not guilty pleas on Monday during an arraignment on 11 counts of child molestation. If convicted of all charges against him, the 67-year-old faces a maximum sentence of 179 years to life. Police arrested McFarland on Thursday; Orange County District Attorney prosecutors allege that the molestation of seven children between the age of five and 15 happened between 2003 and 2017.
Nearly all of the writers of the New Testament predicted that changes would occur in key beliefs after their deaths. That person would “fall away” and that “apostasy” would enter the body of believers. Consider the following verses:
“For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock… For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.” Acts 20:27-30
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come (the return of Christ), except there come a falling away first…” 2 Thessalonians 2:3
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy…” 1 Timothy 4:1-2
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:2-4
“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom, the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:1-3
“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” Jude v3
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1
We can see from the verses above that the established church would be deceived by false ideas. The warning is to take heed to what the Bible teaches. We must get back to the word of God. We cannot afford to rely on what a Vicar, Priest, Bishop or Pastor dictates to us.
We have to search out the scriptures to ensure that we hold the truth as preached by the original believers in Jesus Christ. Such searching can be done by any individual who is seeking for truth. It takes an open and independent mind, one which comes to the Bible to find that truth. The verses above show the importance of finding the true original doctrines as taught in the scriptures and holding fast to them. It clearly does matter what we believe and to ensure we have not been deceived by an apostate system we have to get back to what the Bible teaches.
The Historical Fulfilment
From the verses we have looked at, you can clearly see that the established body of Christians would be infiltrated and deceived by false ideas. History shows that the early church changed its stance on core doctrines quite early on. This changed and corrupted church soon became political under the name of the Catholic church. Many split-offs from this “Mother” church have occurred but most of these “daughters” adopted the already changed and corrupted doctrines of their Mother.
The historian Edward Gibbon, in the 15th chapter of his ‘Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire’, tells of how the original beliefs of the early Christians were changed over the course of time. He writes the following:
“The ancient and popular doctrine of the Millennium was intimately connected with the second coming of Christ … a joyful Sabbath of a thousand years; when Christ, with the triumphant band of the saints and the elect who had escaped death, or who had revived, would reign upon earth…”
So the early believer’s hope, as outlined in the Bible (more here) was that Jesus was to return to the earth to set up a Kingdom. Believers were to reign with Him on earth for 1000 years. This belief changed. A core doctrine that most churches adopted was that men have an immortal soul (a belief brought in by ancient Greek philosophy) and that, upon death, it floated to heaven or hell. Many churches, including the Catholic church, its break off daughters and even churches who claim to have nothing to do with the Catholic church such as Evangelical churches, hold this same corrupted doctrine today.
Justin Martyr, an early Christian, also wrote in 150AD:
“For if you have conversed with some that are indeed called Christians, and do not maintain these opinions, but even dare to blaspheme the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, and say that there is no resurrection of the dead, but that the souls, as soon as they leave the body, are received up into heaven, take care that you do not look upon these. But I, and all those Christians that are really orthodox in every respect, do know that there will be a resurrection of the body and a thousand years in Jerusalem when it is built again, and adorned, and enlarged, like Ezekiel, and Isaiah and the rest of the prophets declare.” – Dialogue With Trypho, The Jew, section LXXX.
Again we see how that the original church doctrine was changed – and we could cite from many more writers who lived in the early period of the church.
With further study you would find that other core doctrines of modern Christianity are not original beliefs as taught in the scriptures – the four most profound corruptions are on the doctrine of the resurrection, the Kingdom of God on earth, the unity of God and the devil(select a link to find out the true Bible teaching on these topics).
Many recent changes are occurring in most churches as the pressures of modern, humanistic society challenge already weak church practices and doctrines. In a desperate attempt to keep up their popularity, churches adopt these ideas. There are a few doctrines that have recently been changed in many churches – such as the authority of the Bible, the Holy Spirit, divorce, adultery, cohabitation, homosexuality, and women priests amongst many more.
The Catholic church especially has exposed its changing character with the public ‘apologies’ of its leader (The Pope). One Catholic doctrine is that the Pope is God’s infallible representative on earth. How is it then that one Pope can apologize for another’s declaration – especially for beliefs or decrees which followers died for!
Consider the recent declaration that the idea of Limbo for child “souls” is not true. What of other Popes who believed it or indeed the Mothers and Fathers who paid money to the clergy to supposedly get their children from Limbo to heaven? Did God change his mind? What about Pope Benedict XVI’s apology for offending Islam in one of his speeches in 2006 – were the Popes of previous ages sorry when they ordered the destruction of thousands of Muslims?
These recent changes clearly show that change is something that does and will occur – but is it something that should occur?
God’s ways do not change
The Bible clearly teaches that God’s ways and purpose do not change. Consider these verses:
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” James 1:17
“For I am the LORD, I change not…” Malachi 3:6
“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” Numbers 23:19<
“Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:” Hebrews 6:17-18
“In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;” Titus 1:2
It is important therefore to read the Bible, for what we find there will not change. Although man changes and society’s rules may change – the Bible will stay constant, both in its doctrines and its teaching on how we should live. What we believe and how we live our lives, should be consistent with the Bible if we claim to be followers of it.
In 2 Thessalonians 2:3, Paul makes it clear that the day of the Lord, a time of worldwide judgment (Isaiah 13:6; Obadiah 1:15), will not transpire until two things happen. First, the falling away, or great apostasy, must occur. Second, the “man of lawlessness” must be revealed, he who is called the “son of perdition,” also known as the Antichrist. Once this person makes himself known, the end times will indeed have come. Numerous speculations about the identity of the man of sin, beginning in the first century, have included Caligula, Caius Caesar, Mohammed, Napoleon, and any number of Roman popes. None of them were the Antichrist.
The man of lawlessness, according to 2 Thessalonians 2:4, is the one who “will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.” Clearly, this has not yet happened; no one since Paul’s time has set himself up as God in the Jewish temple. Two thousand years have passed since the epistle was written, and the “day of the Lord” has not yet come. Paul assures us that it will not come until the falling away comes first.
The Greek word translated “rebellion” or “falling away” in verse 3 is apostasia, from which we get the English word apostasy. It refers to a general defection from the true God, the Bible, and the Christian faith. Every age has its defectors, but the falling away at the end times will be complete and worldwide. The whole planet will be in rebellion against God and His Christ. Every coup requires a leader, and into this global apostasy will step the Antichrist. We believe this takes place after the church has been raptured from the earth.
Jesus warned the disciples concerning the final days in Matthew 24:10–12: “At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.” These are the characteristics of the great apostasy of the end times.

Chick-Fil-A Caves to LGBTQE-E for Evil Mafia, Agrees to Stop Supporting Christian, Pro-Family Charities
After months of badgering and persecution by the “rainbow” brigade, fast-food fried chicken chain Chick-fil-A has announced that it will no longer donate money to any Christian or pro-family charities that homosexuals and transgenders find “offensive.”
In an official corporate announcement, Chick-fil-A President and Chief Operating Officer (CEO) Tim Tassopoulos revealed that these changes are being made as part of his company’s continued efforts to break into “new markets,” some of which abhor Chick-fil-A’s traditionally wholesome identity.
“There’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are,” Tassopoulos told Bisnow. “There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message.”
Part of that “message” and signaling “who we are” apparently involves Chick-fil-A ending its partnerships with the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), and the Paul Anderson Youth Home, all of which uphold a Christian view of marriage and sexuality.
“This provides more focus and more clarity,” Tassopoulos went on to explain about this decision. “We think [education, hunger, and homelessness] are critical issues in communities where we do business in the US.”
The new Chick-fil-A cares more about the “values” of angry LGBTQP mobs than Christian values
Another reason for these changes is money, of course. Chick-fil-A has previously been denied entry at multiple airports across the country, including at San Antonio International Airport in Texas and Buffalo Niagara International Airport in New York.

A multitude of uses, from stress reduction to topical first aid. See the complete listing here, and help support this news site.
According to reports, left-wing zealots were so outraged at Chick-fil-A’s plans to open restaurants at these two airports that they proceeded to strongarm local politicians into banning the franchise from opening in them.
The San Antonio City Council decided to prohibit Chick-fil-A from opening at its airport on the grounds that Chick-fil-A supposedly has a “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.” A similar situation occurred at Buffalo Niagara International Airport, where a local Democratic official declared Chick-fil-A to be an “anti-LGBTQ corporation.”
Many Chick-fil-A customers responded by filing complaints with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), claiming that Chick-fil-A is being unfairly discriminated against over the company’s religious image. But Chick-fil-A didn’t bother to wait for the outcome of these complaints, and instead decided to cave to the Cult of LGBTQP – the P stands for pedophiles, by the way.
“No organization will be excluded from future consideration – faith-based or non-faith-based,” Tassopoulos further made clear.
In other words, Chick-fil-A is now just another run-of-the-mill American corporation that caters to the whims of LGBTQPs at the expense of its customer base, which is large families, many of whom have put their own livelihoods on the line in defense of Chick-fil-A all these years – and all apparently for nothing.
Chick-fil-A would seemingly rather please the LGBTQP mob that vandalized one of its Manhattan stores back in the summer, scrawling vulgarities like “F*** haters” alongside a giant red letter “X,” than take a truly brave stand in defense of the charities it has long supported.
It’s a giant slap in the face against the Salvation Army, to which Chick-fil-A donated $115,000 to last year in support of the charity’s “Angel Tree” program, which provides gifts to more than 11,000 children during the Christmas season.
Chick-fil-A is also throwing up a giant middle finger to the FCA, a Christian-based youth athlete organization that offers summer camps to children from low-income families. Last year, Chick-fil-A donated $1.65 million to the FCA, which has now been axed from Chick-fil-A’s charity recipient list.
“From heroes to heels in one decision,” lamented one Breitbart News commenter about Chick-fil-A’s fall from grace.
“When you legalize criminal behavior, the criminals try to criminalize virtue,” noted another, adding that “homosexuality is a crime against nature.”

My name is Steve Meyers and I need to share a vision and warning that the Lord showed me back in April 2007….
Many of you will ask why I waited so long to share the warning. I didn’t. I shared the story with everyone that would listen from pastors to friends to family to colleagues. Immediately following the initial vision, I called a close friend. I told him to sit down that I had something to tell him. I needed it documented as I knew this was supernatural and from God. As I witness events unfolding today, I need to share the vision again.

The silencing of the American people before 2020?
“The human heart is an idol factory.”
The Un-Godly — Those That Suppress the Truth, the social media giants built multi-billion dollar empires by giving everyone a voice, but now that they have such a dominant position on the Internet they have decided that many prominent conservative voices should be completely silenced.
Our government has been overthrown. As evidenced by Trump’s capitulation on the border, his recent servitude to the GMO industry and his acquiescence to the warmongers, our President has been compromised. Our liberties are being eliminated one by one. Gun confiscation is next. The Constitution is gasping its last breaths. Our borders are destroyed and our culture has been turned upside down by every perversion known to man.
The Left, a broad term for Liberal Socialist Democrats that can only be explained fully by using the Bible explanation of the human race is as follows. A servant of Satan, because you are either saved or lost. This election has brought out the true nature of who you serve. Simply put, it’s Donald Trump, Conservatives, and Christians against the rest of the world. The Left’s Love applies only to those who believe as they do. They Love evil and commit Anarchy against those who love good. They are governed by lies and never tell the truth. On this Friday, Inaugural Day for the swearing-in of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States the Left wants to commit widespread Anarchy to shut down the swearing-in ceremony. Their goal of transforming America, which was founded in Judea Christian values into a Pagan Nation is almost complete. Their goal has always been the total removal of God from American society and the downfall of America. Donald Trump says he is a Presbyterian, but he left off the USA, an apostate church.
Everything done in dark will be brought to light, being biblically bankrupt will not exclude the elitist.
Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In, I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply Put, I Do Not Believe the Government Is the Solution for Everything. I Do Not Place Any Faith, Trust, or Hope in Any Politicians to Fix What Is Wrong with the World. “Come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20) StevieRay Hansen
