The Hour of Deception

Source: Art Sadlier, Monday August 1st 2011

It has become more obvious in recent days that the liberal media and many liberals have a deep seated hatred of Christianity.

In the Huffington post, Bill O'Reilly sternly criticized the media for describing Anders Behring-Breivik, the man who has admitted to committing the mass killings in Norway, as a Christian, saying that such a thing was "impossible."

O'Reilly went on to say, “"No one believing in Jesus commits mass murder, the man might have called himself a Christian on the net, but he is certainly not of that faith...we can find no evidence, none, that this killer practiced Christianity in any way."

O’Reilly continued, the reason the media was calling Breivik a Christian was because "the left wants you to believe that fundamentalists Christians are a threat just like crazy jihadists are." O'Reilly called this notion "dishonest and insane."

O'Reilly also said that the media "is pushing the Christian angle [because] they don't like Christians very much because we are too judgmental," and that the press wants to "diminish" social and religious conservatives.

Never mind the fact that Breivik had absolutely nothing to do with Christianity. He hadn’t been to church since he was a teenager and his manifesto revealed clearly that he was not a Christian. Yet the CBC calls him a Christian fundamentalist. The CBC News anchors started repeating every hour, “The murder was a ‘Christian fundamentalist’ who hated Muslims.”

Breivik wrote, “I guess I am not an excessively religious man. I am first and foremost a man of logic and many more like me do not necessarily have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and God.”

Ezra Levant writing in the London Free Press says, “But the CBC calls him a Christian fundamentalist. The mass murder in Norway is a horrendous crime. It is also a terrible tragedy.”

Levant goes on to say, “But here Breivik’s crimes have turned into the greatest political opportunity liberals have received in years. Left-wing opportunists now have their poster boy: A Christian they can now use as a counter-example whenever anyone is concerned about the war on terror.”

Levant goes on to say, “The CBC wants to associate being concerned about radical Islam with this mass murderer. They want to delegitimize peaceful, liberal discussions of these matters, by tainting them with murder.” He continues, “That is why the CBC is lusting after the story with such jubilation: It is their answer to 9/11, proof of Christianity’s evil and conservatism’s evil.”

We are living in an hour when men are calling evil good and good evil. David Kupelian recently stated, “The anti-journalists will not print the truth and they attack those who do.”

Jesus said that the great mark of the last days would be “deception.” In the last few decades we have watched with some amazement, as deception has swept over both the church and society. The stage is set for the man of deception to appear and deceive the whole world.

“And then shall that Wicked be revealed ... Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness.....And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” (Thessalonians 2:8-11).
