Writ Day went by in the twinkling of an eye.
Here is part 4 of an hour Long TV 1 debate I participated in last year in which I presented arguments for ending Racial separatism (Waitangi Apartheid and indigenous rights). This segment (And part 5) is where I make my best contribution, yet If you have an hour to burn you may like to go back and start at Part 1.
Get your smoke on!
It is shocking for me to think that I was once an atheist. I can sympathize with infidelity as I myself was absolutely blinded by Materialism. Today praise God the scales have fallen from my eyes. As the lyrics of this Song says. “I look at my daughter… and I believe..”. Its crazy that some of you reading this will require an explaination!
The truth is stranger than fiction. It may surprise you to learn that only sinners like Alice Cooper go to Heaven. It was for guys like him that Jesus died. Its ironic that though Salvation is an open invitation to all it seems to be that only rebellious souls whom realize their moral condition want the grace of God which is in Christ Jesus. Self-righteousness appears to be a terrible affliction which blinds the proud. The Self righteous theist seems to believe they don’t need Christ. Many go to church yet think the story of Redemption via the Cross to be vulgar. They think they are holy enough to walk straight in Heavens front door! “Im not a whoremonger, or winebibber” they convince themselves and peer downward at everyone else . Yet the scripture says otherwise “ There is none righteous no not one for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Rom 3vs10+23).
Then you get the Self Righteous Atheist Materialist who hates God and professes “Morality is bunk”. He’s not a sinner! Typically/ Ironically these birds maintain delusions of being Good people. They condemn the God of the Bible outright reasoning that if there really was a God, He would have no right to throw such a nice person as they in Hell!
Whatever the logic Self-righteous people of all shades have no need of a Savior and this is why Hell will be filled with them. They have made a fantastic error! The sin nature of Mankind is the most self-evident of truths! Furthermore they assume reality must conform to their whims…to *their Judgment*… so that if there is a God he could not possibly set a higher standard of morality than their own, or demand they accept such humiliating terms as to think It was for their sins that Christ willingly suffered the cross.
They surmise they have no need of Christ. They reject the Gospel.
Wrong Bet! “…as it is appointed unto man once to die, but after this the judgment.’ (Hebrews 9vs27)
Yes Hell will be filled with the Self-righteous and Heaven will be filled with Sinners like me and my brother Alice Cooper… whom realized we need Christ. Not governed by vain delusions, we’re not too proud to humble ourselves before God, Confess our Sinfulness, and thank him for his mercy and grace in sending Christ to redeem us. Its that simple! “For The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom6vs23)
Gods chosen vessel to reveal and preach the Gospel of Grace to us sinful gentiles,St Paul says “This is faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that *in me first God might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting”* (1Tim !vs15,16). “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us…” (Tit3vs5)
The truth is stranger than fiction My friends. Alice Cooper is saved! He’s a Brother in Christ! Will you remain Devils Food?
*The Gospel functions best under Political freedom*
Receiving the gospel is a matter of personal choice and conviction. Faith cannot be imposed via coercion. The only way faith can be propagated is via evangelism (Free Speech/ Free press) ie reasoning from and appealing to the scriptures hoping to convince the lost of the validity of the Christian Faith. Coercion being contrary to the modus opperandi of evangelism means Religious liberty is the ideal political environment for the dissemination of the gospel, not Legalistic moral tyranny which persecutes infidelity, and obviously it is obviously much harder to preach the gospel and function as a Christian under tyrannical systems like Communism or ‘The Holy Roman Empire’ which oppress and suppress beliefs which are not sanctioned by the State. Alice Cooper would have been burned at the stake had he lived 500 years ago. Indeed he would have been sent to a Gulag had he been born in the USSR. Thankfully he lived in a more enlightened era and had time to come to his senses and trust Christ. Salvation is by Grace, and may be freely accepted or rejected. Liberty to follow ones personal convictions is the vital component.

Can you imagine a political campaign ad like this in New Zealand? No, didn’t think so.
Perhaps not uncoincidentally, also in my inbox later in the day was a press release from ACT Leader Don Brash with the subject line, Time for Action. Don says
PREFU figures released today show that the National Government is projected to achieve fiscal surplus by 2014/15, as originally projected in the Budget. If achieved, this would place New Zealand in an elite group of countries. But the PREFU also highlights some very disappointing facts …
New Zealand will continue to suffer from anaemic economic growth for the foreseeable future and is projected to have long-term growth markedly slower than the growth assumed for Australia. This suggests that the Government’s objective of narrowing the gap between incomes here and those in Australia is still a distant dream.
I think I have a sound grasp of basic economic principles. I know what wealth is and where it comes from. But I have no idea what PREFU is. If Don says that today’s release of PREFU figures is good news, I believe him. But this anaemic press release doesn’t inspire this reader to action. I suspect that the latest poll which shows that John Banks trails in Epsom did not inspire the writer. It now looks likely that Don will have nothing to show for his unprincipled pragmatism in regard to ACT’s choice of Epsom candidate. A seat for him in Parliament after the upcoming election is still a distant dream.
I admire Don for (among many things) his public stance on cannabis law reform, and I despise the media and assorted low-lifes who used the opportunity to put the boot in rather than seize the opportunity to debate the issues. But now it looks like the cannabaton has been passed back to the ALCP. Thanks, Don, we’ll run with it.
Here again we see how taxes raped from the working class by Nanny states are funneled into the coffers of the filthy Rich. Again it becomes clear that a small Libertarian government is to be preferred because if under liberty wealth distribution is unequal, at least it would not be so because of unjust political favouritism! Oh and lets not mention the fact that the whole issue of Global Warming is one big fat Socialist Lie designed to destroy freedom and private property rights and undermine Judeo-Christian values! (Agenda 21 prefers the worship of ‘Mother Earth’ to that of Jehovah, whom gave mankind dominion over the Earth and told him to subdue it-Gen1vs 27,28). Let me make it clear that I am not Anti-Wealth. I am anti-monopoly. Monopoly being defined as *Political advantage*. The point I am making is that the socialist gospel is a fraud.
Winning the WC cost New Zealand 3/4 of a Billion Dollars! That’s is an insane amount of Loot! It demonstrates our Nation is a ship of fools. This Budget Blowout is yet another consequence of the politicalisation of Sport… a demonstration of Socialist *Totalitarian* over-government.
To all you Socialists out there who Cheered and whistled as the Games played on.. You have no right to claim you care for the Poor! Now they must bear the Burden of these hundreds of Millions on the price of their food and clothes… on the cost of their rents! You can have no claim to be the vanguard against Elitist Favoritism! You have redistributed Millions of Dollar from the poor to the rich and created a sporting elite to be worshiped by the deluded masses… whose wealth and fame will grow …. who will meddle in politics, pervert our democracy, and support even greater Government usurpations!
Today you Parade while the backs of the working man breaks, and the wolves of dept are at his door! And not one Politician will have the Balls to admit this truth! Just like Ex Mayor of Hamilton Bob Simcock tried to justify the tens of millions of rate payer debt caused by the V8 Super-cars by saying “The regional economy benefits”, so too will the Mammoth debts and ongoing expenses from the World Cup be said to have ‘benefited the National economy’. I say “Tell that to the thousands of poor whom struggle to pay their bills! Tell that to the pensioners who cant afford to heat their hovels in winter!” They will receive not one benifical penny… all they receive is a hefty bill from Nanny state. And you wonder why Western Civilisation is wallowing in debt and the divide between rich and poor keeps growing? Tim Wikiriwhi
