The word "˜racist' probably brings to mind a skinhead with a snarling face. But this image can blind us to the presence of well-spoken racists in very respectable jobs, who can capitalise on their social status to inflict more serious long-term damage than their counterparts on the streets. A prime example of this is one of my fellow Anglicans, Rev Stephen Sizer, vicar of Ã‚Â Christ Church Virginia Water. It hardly needs saying that I would only make such a serious charge on the basis of convincing evidence, and having already pursued the official means of complaint without success.
This is the future capital of the world, but right now it's full of holy hypocrites.

In Jerusalem this week, an Arab taxi driver wanted to take us to Bethlehem. We refused. He was even more surprised that, not only would we never go there, but we don't celebrate the pagan festival called "Christmas" , which might as well be called "Christless." We were also surprised to find that the Lord wasn't really a Jew, as we had always supposed.....

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday ended the "Istanbul Process," a three-day, closed-door international conference hosted by the State Department on measures to combat religious "intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization."
Further to my announcement last week regarding the withdrawing of their services from Revelation TV by Jacob Prasch, Bob Mitchell, Brian Gemmell, and Alan Franklin, there have been further developments.
Dear Brethren of the Body of Christ,
Something is just not right at Revelation TV. I am getting the impression that staff and volunteers at the station are being gagged, and are not being allowed to say anything to the public who ring in asking questions about programmes that are suspect and allowed on air. A script is being read out - and that's it! What Christian viewers are picking up is that everything is being glossed over, and only letters and e-mails supporting the TV station are being read out, giving the impression that Revelation has a wider audience and support than it actually has. The cracks are being covered up with whitewash! The Management Team and the Board of Directors have made their decision and will not change direction whatever.Ã‚Â It is becoming apparent who pays the piper plays the tune; for them to say, during the recent "Building the Foundation" programme, that "Revelation TV is owned by you - the viewers" is a lie, and just not true.
Thanks to our readers regarding the Revelation TV desecration by Howard and Lesley Condor and Gordon Pettie and blessings to those who will no longer financially support Revelation TV due to it's promotion of anti-scriptural apostate lunacy.
We thank our readers for the avalanche of supportive letters we have received supporting our disassociation from Revelation TV due to its propagation of ecumenism with Rome, Seventh Day Adventism, and the hype artistry money preaching of Jesse Duplantis.
In the last few years we have witnessed a trend with an increasing emphasis on this kind of 'ministry' being propagated in what claim to be scripturally based Christ centered churches.
I do not object to married or engaged Christian couples displaying moderate nuances of affection publicly such as holding hands or a quick kiss etc. I am not a stuffed shirt puritanical religious freak and I don't pay much mind to those who are. But discretion imposes parameters and this exceeds prudent limits. This is inappropriate in public, even for married couples, especially in a church service. There is a time and a place for expression of marital romance, but in public or in church is neither the time nor the place. It cheapens the romance by reducing it from something personal and intimate into something approaching exhibitionism. I find it altogether inappropriate and any doctrinal theology used to justify it is bogus and devoid of exegetical support.
Please view this shocking film about Government Invasion of Your Parental Rights.
Jesus warned not to set dates and that is the infraction ; Camping goes against the direct unambiguous instruction of Jesus.
This is the issue and the only issue. The over whelming majority of futurists view Camping as a dangerous religious charlatan
and many futurists have been among his biggest critics whose voices were at the forefront of the caveats warning against Camping.
To blame not Camping's reprehensible rejection of the plain instruction of Jesus, but rather futurism is a cheap and an irrational brand of warped opportunism and theocratic hooliganism leaving me with no more regard or respect for Marty Angelo than I have for Harold Camping and that is no regard or respect at all. Both of them are pathetically deceived figures used by Satan to deceive others.
Harold & Marty both obtain their eschatology from the same source - the pit of hell. They indeed are six of one, half dozen of the other.
Harold Camping belongs in jail states prison minister Marty Angelo
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 21, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- In what is turning out to be another beautiful day in sunny southern California outspoken prison minister and author Marty Angelo spoke out harshly against doomsday prophet, Harold Camping at being allowed to make another false prediction that Jesus Christ was going to rapture the Christians today.
"I know prison convicts who are serving life sentences for much lesser crimes than what this Christian 'Bernie Madoff' Camping keeps committing," Angelo remarked to a Los Angeles reporter. "There is an inmate today in a California prison serving 20 years to life for his third felony for robbing a grocery store to feed his family.
"Camping has fleeced his followers out of millions of dollars over the years without one law enforcement official ever looking into what he was doing was against the law.
"When someone doesn't provide a service or the product does not do what it is supposed to a customer is allowed to receive their money back or it could be considered a fraudulent transaction. But I do not see Harold Camping giving one red-nickel back to his donors or even apologizing for misleading them. It is amazing this man is allowed to walk the streets. Defrocked Jim Baker went to prison for far less offences.
"There are many other end-time doomsday Christian prophets out there who do not go as far as Camping does in actually giving a date of Jesus' return. But they are just as wrong as Camping by misleading people into believing Jesus is returning in this generation when the Bible clearly teaches the only generation Jesus was returning in was the generation living when He walked the earth.
"Futurism is destroying Christianity. It chips away at Christ's words and makes Him out to either be a liar or just plain wrong.
"Jesus Christ returned within His generation just like He predicted and destroyed the old Jerusalem religious system to usher in His New Jerusalem... the church... the true Israel -- consisting of both Jews and Gentiles who believe in Him, the seed of Abraham.
"Jesus Christ does not need Harold Camping to announce His coming because He has been here for over two thousand years... living within each one of His followers."

In April of 2010 I wrote my e-newsletter on the new film titled, Whose Side Is God On? In its own promotion, it aimed at changing the end-time views of evangelicals and the theology that says the Jews are God's chosen people and that they have a Divine right to the land of Israel. The movie's spokesman, Porter Speakman, explains that there is a biblical alternative for Christians who want to love and support the people of Israel. He says that there is a theology that doesn't favor one people group over another. Instead, it promotes peace and reconciliation for both Jews and Palestinians unlike "Christian Zionism" that is outspoken in its favoritism toward all things Jewish, based on biblical verses.
