Defending Christianity In The Twenty-First Century
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge"
Nothing ever changes in Washington because it’s been planned that way, plain and simple; in a word, conspiracy, a rude and ill-mannered term not tolerated in America, from the left, right, CNN or Fox. Dare anyone utter the word. However, if you'll just google the phrase, 'New World Order Quotes,' you’ll soon see hundreds of quotations, from New Agers, philosophers, popes, journalists, bankers, high churchmen and top government officials—from George Washington to George Bush—affirming there is a New World Order (NWO) conspiracy. Many speak of it with approval. Then type in, 1) Georgia Guide-Stones, 2) Denver International Airport Murals or 3) Bohemian Grove to get a glimpse of the awful nature of this conspiracy. Unlike the former days of secrecy and intrigue, the NWO is no longer a secret; yesterday’s conspiracy theory is today's conspiracy fact. Those who deny the World Conspiracy denies that which is open and in plain view. Those in the church who deny it discredit themselves, their churches and Christianity.
Surprisingly, some Americans (and not a few Christians) seem to favor the NWO. They say some kind of world government is necessary. 'How can there be peace and safety in the nuclear age without a global arbiter,' they query. The alternative might well be nuclear annihilation. If the NWO then is the answer, what becomes of our Constitution and Bill of Rights? What becomes of America?
Ruling the world has been the aspiration of fallen men from time immemorial, in all likelihood from the Great Fall (Gen. 3). The Egyptian Pharaohs, the Mesopotamian and Persian conquerers, Alexander the Great, the Roman Caesars, the popes, the banking dynasties, Hitler, Stalin, Mao and many others, dreamed of being ‘King of Kings’ over all the earth. None ever did, God would not permit it (cf., Dan. 2:21).
This crave to rule likely accelerated during the time of the earliest Greek philosophers (c. 600 BC), the first to extol the 'virtues of evolution.' If the 'strong ruled the weak,' they reasoned (a result of the Fall, not evolution), rule by force was inevitable, and probably desirable. Thus, as Charles Darwin began hitching this ancient religion to science 2,600 years later, the 'survival of the fittest' mechanism began propelling man toward the heavens. Today, evolution is not only applied to biology, but sociology, psychology, education, business, law, politics, religion, imperialism, war etc.
Unfortunately for evolutionists, however, nature always points downward (i.e., devolution), not upward. For this reason, and others, FAR adamantly rejects evolution and its corollary: world government. First, evolution is a poor model for government because it violates the very laws of science: e.g. 1. The Law of Cause and Effect, which says the cause of the universe was greater than the universe, and existed prior to and outside the universe. (Evolution says the universe came into existence from nothing, an effect without cause.) 2. The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, which says the universe and everything in it is becoming more disordered and running down. (Evolution says everything is progressing upward.) 3. The Law of Biogenesis, which says life only arises from pre-existing life. (Evolution says life arose from non-living matter.) 4. The Law of Probability, which says macroevolution is mathematically impossible, the odds of it occurring being one in one followed by 2 billion zeros. (Evolution claims to have beaten these odds.) 5. The Law of the Conservation of Information, which says that complex and coded information (e.g., DNA, RNA) can only arise from an intelligent mind. (Evolution says DNA and RNA evolved by chance—both at the same time.)
Secondly, the NWO is premised on the notion that the earth belongs to the elite, those who have the wealth and power to take it—by force if necessary. However, the Bible says the earth belongs to God: “... the earth is Mine,” says the LORD (Exodus 19:5). Also, God’s plan for the world since the Flood has always been nationalism. Genesis 10:32 says “...the nations were separated on the earth after the flood,” and “... the LORD scattered [the nations] over the face of the whole earth” (Gen. 11:8). God's plan of nationhood has never been abrogated.
Today, one of the most effective tools in the NWO’s arsenal of tricks and gimmicks is the ‘Politics of the Radical Center,’ defined in part at Wikipedia as:
“…a centrist reconciliation between capitalism and socialist command economy… the underpinning of corporate-statism, in which both of the two dominant parties serve the global capitalist agenda…” 26
New Age matriarch Marilyn Ferguson describes it this way:
“…neither right nor left but uplifted forward…a new kind of politics...an evolving Radical Center …a
new humanity...” 27
(Note the reference to evolution.)
At other times the Radical Center is called The Dialectic (Marx), The Third Way (Clinton/Blair), or Problem - Reaction - Solution (America's 2-Party system).
Radical Center Politics begins with a ‘thesis’ (a proposition, e.g., capitalism), combined with an ‘antithesis’ (an apposing proposition, e.g., socialism), which then becomes a ‘synthesis’ (a combination of the two, a capitalist/socialist hybrid). The implications of this “new kind of politics” are staggering. "If you can control the opposites,” writes Prof. Sutton of Stanford, “you dominate the nature of the outcome." 28
In the capitalist west, Radical Center Politics has been used by the elite to acquire vast amounts of wealth under an "unfettered capitalist system" (cheered by political & religious conservatives), while the middle and upper-middle classes toil under a "regulated socialist system" (cheered by political & religious liberals). Though most Westerners have a semblance of prosperity, they never seem to have enough to get ahead. Yet, they toil daily, happily surrendering half their income in taxes (the regulated socialist system). The income tax, the largest portion of our tax system, ends up in the coffers of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank, and foriegn nations (the unfettered capitalist system).
When the Dow finally bottomed at the end of November, those same banks were able to scoop up depressed assets for pennies on the dollar (the unfettered capitalist system), just like they did after the 1929 crash.
Now, under the 'regulated socialist system,' the government will force the lower, middle and upper-middle classes (including those not yet born) to repay those bailouts in the form of taxation. And don't forget, the bailouts began under a Republican Administration (Bush), continued under a Democratic Administration (Obama) and today (2018) continue under another Republican Administration (Trump, who has already tipped his hand to a third Greek bailout).
(A fascinating note: Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs, stated after Goldman received its share of the bailout money [$13-25 billion]: “I’m doing God’s work.” Apparently, the bailout racket has found favor in heaven.) 29
“Is it not the rich who oppress you?”
- James 2:6
Not long afterward, the news media, in an effort to soothe the hide of angry Americans, reported that the bailouts were being repaid. (But repaid to whom?) The US Treasury (which is broke) borrowed the bailout money from the Federal Reserve, who printed the money out of thin air (and has to be paid back). However, that money was repaid to the US Treasury, not the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve will now collect a second payback via the national debt by US taxpayers. The creativity of the US Treasury and Federal Reserve knows no bounds.
Many of our brethren contend that these things have nothing to do with the gospel, or the work of the church. FAR strongly disagrees. Those bailouts were an enormous theft from future generations, making it a moral issue (indeed a monstous crime), and hence a Christian issue. The eighth Commandment says, “Thou shalt not steal” (still in effect, according to I John 3:4). How can we, the church, who "know God's righteous decrees, that those who do such things deserve death... approve of those who do them." (Rom. 1:32)? Are we complicit in their crimes? Most likely, if we knowingly keep them in office with our votes. When the new wine of patriotism is poured into the old wineskins of the church, both become foul and corrupt.30 Today's new wine of religious flag-waving is a direct result of patriotic preaching and right-wing church/state commingling.
Looking back at the 1st Century church, we see no apostles or elders promoting patriotism or holding "God & Country" rallies for the State. Christians were oppressed and martyred because of their lack of patriotism.
People of faith, of course, must never demand nor expect a perfect government in a fallen world (Rom. 8: 20-22). But we can expect—and indeed demand—certain time-honored ethical & moral principles be upheld. If politicians refuse, we must reject them and withhold our votes. When the government consistently violates the Constitution and snubs its constituency we are under no obligation of loyalty or allegiance.

At a revival not long ago, a missionary who'd served a few years in Egypt told us we should stop being so Islamophobic, since the vast majority of Muslims (94%) are nonviolent and quite civilized.31 As we have documented elsewhere on this site, the militant 6% are supported and armed by Western democracies, including the United States, Saudi Arabia and Israel. Our speaker also told us, with some surprise—and a bit of unease—that the killing of the unborn is illegal in Islamic countries. Some in attendance got very upset. Was this because in "Christian America" we kill thousands of the unborn daily, and in Muslim countries they do not? If so, patriotism trumped Christianity that night.
(Important note: Today's Islamophobia network is propagated and financed largely by wealthy, right-wing benefactors via tax-exempt foundations, most of them Zionist and neoconservative. One particular benefactor is billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife, of Mellon banking, oil and aluminum fame, who has endowed a new 'School of Public Policy' at Pepperdine University [a church of Christ affiliate].)
A video expose of Islamophobia funding can be seen at DEMOCRACY NOW
(Note of caution: Although DEMOCRACY NOW is very liberal, it contains good documented information)
During a mid-week Bible study at another church, the class was discussing American goodness and virtue, such as foreign aid, and the many Christian converts it had supposedly produced. I disagreed, telling them that much of our foreign aid is a racket for corporations and banks, and has probably turned people against Christianity and America.
A lot of our foreign aid is cobbled together for the benefit of international corporations and banks in the form of US loans—routinely US taxpayer guaranteed loans—to bribe greedy dictators (many of whom have been put in power by Washington) into pawning their natural resources (e.g., timber, minerals, oil etc.) as loan collateral. Collateral at other times might involve an American banker serving as a government advisor, installing a military base in their country or swaying a vote at the United Nations. These loans pay for industrial parks, deep water ports, electric generating plants, airports and super-highways, things oftentimes not needed. In his book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, John Perkins writes: "In essence, most of the money never leaves the United States; it is simply transferred from banking offices in Washington to engineering offices in New York, Houston or San Fransisco." Moreover, these massive loans, and the austerity required for them, deprive the poorest citizens of health, education and other social services they might otherwise get. If the loans go into default (as they're designed to do) they're simply covered by the nation's collateral.32 If "guaranteed' loans go into default, they're covered by US taxpayers. Either way, the bankers win.
Foreign aid at other times breeds terrorism and violence. According to numerous sources, billions of US dollars and weapons that were supplied to Pakistan in their fight against terrorism, ended up in the camps of el Qaeda and the Taliban via Pakistan's Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI).33 Such aid ultimately benefits the Pentagon and arms manufacturers. Is it not they who protect us from terrorism? Here again is Radical Center Politics at its finest:
- Thesis: More terrorism
- Antithesis: More tax-dollars to fight terrorism
- Synthesis: More money for the Pentagon, more profits for the arms manufacturers
During our country's first hundred years, foreign aid was virtually unheard of. Americans understood that using tax-money for the security and welfare of other nations was prohibited by the Constitution. Today's foreign aid, now reaching into the hundreds of billions of dollars, is most likely illegal.34
Later, as our class was winding down, I couldn’t help telling them about the countless overseas sweatshops run by US and US-linked corporations, that pay their workers pennies per hour, compared to the $20-40 per hour Americans would get for the same work. In Da Nang City, Vietnam, for example, Keyhinge Toys (a subcontractor for American M-B Sales) produces Disney characters given out with McDonald’s Happy Meals. Young girls between 17 and 20 who make these toys earn between 6 and 8 cents per hour, well below the area’s minimum wage of $50 per month. These girls are also forced to work overtime, often without pay (sometimes seven days a week), for their meager incomes of around $250-300 per year.35
One agitated lady snapped: “They should be glad to get it!” The teacher mildly corrected me saying: “It’s probably OK for those people.” When I asked him if he would work for 8 cents an hour, he said "no!" Patriotism trumped Christianity again.

Fortifying A Remnant uses information from all sources: right-wing, left-wing, Christian, non-Christian, foreign and domestic. Your author is very conservative, but fiercely independent; facts are facts, and to get those facts you have to go everywhere. FAR is beholden to no one (on the left, right or middle) except the LORD and His church.
Should FAR be charged with any errors or inaccuracies, corrections or removals will be made if found to be so. If not found to be so, I will debate the issue publicly on social media.
In our articles you will find documentation hyperlinked, plus endnotes at the bottom of pages. We suggest you use them. Sources cited do not imply approval or endorsement of any worldview or philosophy, except our own, which is Biblical, Christian, young-earth and literal six-day Creation.
Although our references do not come from strictly Christian sources, they may still provide good information and make for some interesting reading. If you're a Christian you'll have to "separate the wheat from the chaff." If you're a new Christian, or a non-Christian, be very careful. Familiarize yourself with the New Testament first, then the Old Testament. It’s very important to be grounded in God’s Word. Read the Bible continuously.
On a side note, several Christian acquaintances of mine have urged me to use only conservative material for my website, such as Fox News, the Heritage Foundation, Christian TV, Glenn Beck, Shawn Hannity, Rush Limbaugh etc. I’ve always kindly disagreed, cautioning them that this is a big part of our problem. My friends are unaware that Fox, Heritage, Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh etc. are controlled by the same people (e.g., the Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderbergers, CIA) that control CNN, CBS, MSNBC. Source Source Further, you will never see the conservative/religious right or Hillsdale College unmasking America's fraudulent 2-Party system, the dark history of the Bush family or the GOP/conservative attendees at the ungodly, homosexual Bohemian Grove.
Another acquaintance, a preacher, once told me that he hardly read anything outside the Bible, hinting that I should do the same. The Apostle Paul would have disagreed with him. Paul never hesitated quoting non-Biblical sources when it was useful. In Acts 17:28, for example, during his debate with the Athenian pagans, Paul quoted from two of their own poets: Epimenides (" For in you we live and move and have our being...”) and Aratus ("We are his offspring.’”) Paul quoted again from Epimenides in Titus 1:12, and the Athenian writer Menander in I Cor. 15:33. Jude (the earthly brother of Jesus) alluded to the Book of Enoch in verses 4, 9, 14 & 15, as did Peter in II Peter 2:4-5 and 3:19-20. Not a few Old Testament writers referred to non-Biblical sources as well: The Book of Jasher, The Book of the Wars of the Lord, Chronicles of the Kings of Israel, Chronicles of the Kings of Judah and many others. Apparently, Yahweh's penmen were widely read and able to quote outside sources without compromising their message or harming their conscience. Can we do the same? Certainly, but with great care and caution (see here), and a firm grasp of the Bible.
As the New World Order draws near, it's imperative that we who name the Name of Christ be well-informed, not only in matters spiritual, but political as well, otherwise we'll find ourselves fighting on the side of the enemy. The NWO bosses are as cunning, sly and wicked as they are powerful and wealthy. As we've documented, simply being a member of a church is no longer a defense against the international power-elite; self-seeking preachers and church leaders often collude with the NWO through big-name religious celebraties (see here). Others do it unwittingly out of ignorance or carelessness.
We must immerse ourselves in God’s Word and ponder deeply about what we say we believe, then apply that to our political thinking. This will insulate us from the blathering fascist-neoconservative right, and the whining socialist-liberal left. (Can you imagine 1st Century Christians voting for Pharisees to keep Sadducees out of office?)
Only then will the world cease mocking the nation our founders built with their “lives, fortunes and sacred honor,’" and once again look to America for respectable government and honorable religion. Is it not fascinating that in all the places the Restoration Movement could have taken root, it did so here in the United States? This should fortify our faith and energize our wordhip. .
Perhaps this website will be a first step in that direction.
To be saved from your sins you must:
- Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ (John 8:24; Acts 16:31)
- Repent of your sins (Mat. 3:2; Luke 13:3-5)
- Confess Jesus publicly (Mat. 10:32-33; Romans 10:9-10)
- Be immersed (baptized) into Christ for the remission of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38; Matt.
- Live faithfully until death (Rev. 2:10; James 1:12)
Your obedience to the Gospel is the most important decision you will ever make, and will determine where you will spend eternity. Those who reject the Gospel have only themselves to blame.
“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken unto us by his Son… by whom he also made the worlds; Who, being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high…” (Hebrews 1:1-3).
God Has Spoken To The World For The Last Time!
