Theological beliefs are not blocking union and communion between two of the largest branches of ancient Christianity, according to an Orthodox scholar and hierarch in America.
Rex Tillerson must be a villain. Trump’s pick for Secretary of State received in 2012 Russia’s “Order of Friendship” Award from Vladimir Putin himself.
The former Exxon CEO joins, among many others, such Friend of Vlad Award villains as the Canadian Prime Minister, the head of the European Jewish Congress, two astronauts, a figure skater, and Lebron James’s basketball coach.
According to longtime anti-communist and anti-New World Order author James Perloff:
"Unlike so many U.S. officials who, indoctrinated by the Council on Foreign Relations, place global interests above America’s, Putin is a nationalist who looks out for his own citizens. . . Putin has signed into law a ban on ads for abortions, while calls for ending abortion altogether in Russia grow. . . Among the Russian people, Putin enjoys unsurpassed popularity."
Today's occultic and atheistic society in the West can be traced back to basic theological decisions of the Church a thousand years ago. Both Catholics and Protestants ignored certain key basic philosophical teachings of the historic, Eastern Church the first thousand years, choosing instead to hold the emphases of Greek philosophers like Plato and Aristotle as more important than the Fathers of the Church.
Did you know Ethiopia is a majority Christian nation? Most people don't. Did you know it has been majority Christian since at least 325 AD? Almost no one in the West does. In fact, Ethiopia has been following the God of the Bible since at least 1000 B.C. when the Queen of Sheba connected with King Solomon.
Many Americans already know that the culture has collapsed into immorality the past several decades. And they know that a militant faction of our government continues to insidiously push for aggression and conquest overseas.
But what thread connects these evils? What overarching philosophy and moral framework provides a sensible explanation for modernity's current state? Where do Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism fit into this larger picture?
Who has the right to the land called Palestine? Are the genetic descendants of Abraham still recipients of the biblical promises for the land? Are they actually the genetic descendants? Was the Scofield Bible, a primary shaper of Christian Zionism, funded and orchestrated by Zionist Jews? Do today's Jews follow the Old Testament or something very different? What is the historic Christian view on all these issues?
Dean Arnold and James Perloff discuss the questions at length.
Dean Arnold explores one city's power structure built primarily on the billions of Coca-Cola bottling: the good, the bad, and the reason for their generosity. How does this apply to the world's power structure?
Dean details this topic in his talk to a local civic group in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the Civitan Club.
