THE BROCKHOEFT REPORT
Vol. 1 Issue XII ........ Federal Prison, Ashland ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
The food here is pretty good, the best of the four federal prisons
I've been in. Occasionally they still make mistakes, though. They
served brownies for dessert with the evening meal. The brownies
had been left in the oven too long, so long you couldn't eat them.
To compensate, they gave each prisoner two brownies, instead of
the usual one.

TWO NATIONS AT WAR
ONE UNDER GOD - ONE UNDER …?
For the sake of argument, please let us establish the distinction
between a nation and a country. A country is nothing more than
a geographical land mass with internationally recognized borders
and, presumably, a sovereign government. A nation is a group of
unified people, not a territorial land mass. The members of a nation
have a sense of belonging to one another, being bound by cultural ties.
Thus it is possible for a dispossessed nation of people not to have
any territory of their own, yet still be definable as a nation.
The Kurds of the Middle East are an example of this. They live in
northern Iraq and southern Turkey, although they are a distinctly
separate nation from both the Iraqis and the turks. Yet, both the
governments of Iraq and Turkey refuse diplomatic recognition of
the Kurds' claim to the right of any territory of their own. Since
these two governments have the military might to exercise de facto
rule over their respective lands upon which the Kurds dwell, it is a
fact that the Kurds are a nation of people without a country.
I'm not sympathizing with the Kurds, but simply using them as an
example. They have a history of slaughtering my people, i.e.
Christians. They've even done it recently, in the twentieth century.
The only reason they don't kill Christians any more is because there
aren't any left nearby to kill.
I don't like Kurds. The iraqis and Turks are also mortal enemies
of Christ and His people. I don't like them, either. I don't like very
many people, to be honest with you.
But before you get disgusted with my lack of diplomacy, let me
say two things.
If one of them (Kurd, Iraqi, Turk) repents, I will like them. They
wouldn't even necessarily have to accept Christ for me to love them.
All they would have to do is cease from hostilities against my people,
and then I'd apply "love your neighbor as yourself" to them. The
other thing I want to say before returning to the main topic
is that I already love their babies, because they are innocent.
All babies are equally innocent, whether their parents are Christian,
Muslim, cannibal, or whatever. I believe that anyone who dies in
infancy (whether in utero or post-natal) goes to heaven. I also believe
Jesus, who said that no one can enter heaven except through Him.
Therefore my theory is that anyone who dies in infancy is actually
So if ever I make some statement such as that I am in prison for
fighting for the lives of my people, that statement is not made just
for its emotional, rhetorical value. It's from the heart. I believe it.
It's true. Now back to the subject. So a nation is no more than a
unified group of people. And a country is a geographical region
which can be occupied by more than one nation of people who are,
perhaps, even hostile toward one another.
My point? That's the way it is in the U.S. today.
Someone will say: "Oh, no! Brockhoeft has an 'us and them' mentality!"
Well, of course I do! I've had that attitude for a long time! The other
nation of people living in our land, the anti-Christians (left-wingers)
you don't think they have the same attitude? Haven't you read a single
newspaper or seen even one or two news broadcasts in the past five
years? Wake up! Please! When they speak of us, they revile us. When
they don't speak of us, they're simply ignoring us momentarily. It
doesn't signify a lull in their hatred of us. It simply means that none
of our people have shot one of their beloved abortionists or anything
like that recently. They don't speak of us when we're being lukewarm.
[Note: of course, TBR is not demanding another abortionist's dead
body as evidence to prove we're not being lukewarm at this particular
moment. And, incidentally, at the time of this writing, Paul Hill's act
of defensive warfare has been quite recent.]
A few months ago, this column pointed out that when I was a
school boy our recitation of the pledge of allegiance included
the words "...one nation, under God..." Also pointed out was
that, at that time not so long ago, the unspoken concession
(it was so obvious it didn't need to be said) was that that God
under Whom this was one nation was Jesus Christ. We were
saying: "the U.S. is one nation of Christian people."
You wouldn't have to travel back very far in a time machine
(any further than the 60's, if that far) to see how recently it was
we who were respectable. We, the American public, in general,
were a united Christian nation. Far from being scum, far from
being on the outside looking in, we, Christians, were the respectable.
Never had our American heritage not been Christian. The Lord
God of heaven and earth was our Father, and we were adopted
brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ.
What position could be more respectable than that?
We were the respectable, the insiders, the elite. We were so
predominant, both numerically and in terms of political sway, that
when we pledged allegiance as "one nation under God" we were
confident it was true, and it was true. It was the relatively small
minority of left-wingers, who scoffed at Jesus, who were not
Those who were blatant unbelievers were so relatively few; so
lacking in credibility; and, seemingly, so non influential, that we,
not unreasonably, did not recognize them as a distinctly separate
nation within our national borders. Those infidels who were
blatant about it were mainly found on university faculties
("re-educating" our youth) and among the ranks of writers. Oh,
sure, some leftists had already infiltrated the media, public school
system, government, even the church But they couldn't be blatant;
they had to be subtle so as not to incur the wrath of the general
Because we truly were so strong, we were smug and self-assured
about it. So, like Christians are, indeed, supposed to be during a time
of peace, we were meek. The minority of devoutly atheistic, left-wing
low-lifes seemed no threat to overthrow our Christian society. We
loved them in meekness, even pitied them. "There, but for the grace
of God, go I." We saw them as poor, wretched, lost souls (but still
redeemable); and, since they seemed so weak, we didn't see them as
our nation's enemies. Such a small minority could not incur the wrath
of God against our country. They could not pose a threat to our national
security, it seemed. So, as Christians, it probably was indeed proper
for us to love them, and we did.
Just a very few years ago (1980 something) a left-wing media
pollster (I don't remember if it was a Lou Gallop poll or which )
released the results of a study. The poll had found that over
two thirds of Americans (about 70%) still consider themselves
Christians. It was even published in establishment controlled
newspapers. Oh, sure, I'll be the first to admit, and quickly, that
the percentage who truly are is undoubtedly much smaller. I'm
only pointing out the significance of how wide-spread this lingering
relic of an idea is...that the U.S., generally speaking, is still a Christian
Because it is the very fact that Christianity was predominant have
so recently that keeps so many decent adherents of traditional
American ideals from facing the reality - we are no longer one nation.
Within our borders there is still a Christian nation; but within these
same bounds has emerged a distinctly separate, anti-Christian nation
which is openly hostile to us, slaughtering our young, bludgeoning
our adults and adolescents, and blaspheming our God.
They have drawn a line in the sand. Our people, scared to cross
that line, and equally scared even to have a line of demarcation,
stoop over and smooth the line into oblivion. Then we straighten
up and pretend we never saw the line in the first place. This refusal
to face facts is stupid and dangerous in the extreme.
Volume I, no. 3, of TBR explains how, after reading a column by
Patrick J. Buchanan, I saw and recognized that "government"-ordained
abortion is a war crime. Please bear that in mind as I ramble on. I
described my immediate feeling of certainty that I would eventually
come against abortuaries with fire and/or explosives.
Nevertheless, a person doesn't just suddenly rush out and do such
a thing. He has to study on it for a while. Risk level, potential
benefits (live babies), potential costs (death, imprisonment), these
are not all the factors needing consideration. An overriding consideration
was: is this thing right? Is it the moral thing, is it the principled thing
to do? I saw that an arson or bombing would not be a petty little thing.
It would be a thing of sufficient magnitude that if it were wrong, it
would be terribly wrong. So I saw it was important to make absolutely
sure it was a morally correct thing to do. I use the Bible as my guide
to determine right from wrong.
Love your neighbor (the baby) as yourself. Do unto others (the
babies) as you would want others to do unto you. It was easy for
me to understand reasons why I should do it. But because of the
seriousness of the thing, and wanting to make a thorough study of
it to make sure I wasn't making a terrible mistake, I tried to think,
in light of Scripture, of all the reasons why, perhaps I should not
do it. If I could take all the Scriptural objections, one by one, and
resolve them and reconcile them with Scriptural reasons why I
should do it, then I'd know my resolve was right.
It should be easy for you to believe I was honest in my study of
these questions. If I could have found a Scripture which irreconcilably
condemned my plan, wouldn't I have gladly abandoned it? Why
would I twist a Scripture out of context to fit my own "convenience"?
Do you think I thought my own death would be convenient for me?
Or have these six years in prison been "convenient"? If I had been
looking for Scriptures to twist for my own convenience, I would have
been looking the other way.
There were many hard questions to resolve. Please forgive me while
I briefly depart from my main point (in this issue) to describe the
hardest objection of all to overcome. I'm eager to explain, in a future
issue, how I dealt with it, but you've probably already been wondering
about it. So let me describe it now.
I myself am a father of small children. What about them?
There is a New Testament epistle which says:
But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of
his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an
infidel. [1 Tim. 5:8]
That's serious. It's hard and direct. It's right there in the Bible, so
I believe and revere it. I have a great responsibility to my own
children. If I endanger my life or freedom, I'm endangering my own
children's welfare. For now, please understand that I did think of my
own children first, before others'. I did recognize that my first
obligation was to them. As I said, we'll examine this matter thoroughly
in a future column.
Now back to the present point. There is a Scripture about turning
the other cheek (Luke 6:29). That one was easy. I have a moral
obligation to turn my own other cheek, because the Lord said so.
But it is not for me to turn a helpless, preborn baby's other cheek.
It is for me to defend that child. Two verses before that one,
there is a somewhat similar but much harder verse to reconcile.
In Luke 6:27, our Savior said:
But I say unto you which hear: Love your enemies, do good
to them which hate you.
Well, it's right there in the Bible, and I believe it and revere it. I have
to conform to it. So how am I going to destroy their property?
To arrive at actual truth (God's truth) Christian truth, sometimes
you have to fly backwards in a "time machine". Are there such things
as time machines? Of course there are. The direct question should be:
is there any such thing as a portable, mechanical time machine?
Uh...who knows? Aside from that, though, the human brian is a kind
of "time machine", and the universe is one giant time machine whose
Pilot is God. [I got that stuff from Joe Bartlett].
My assertion that it is sometimes necessary to go backwards in the
"time machine" in your mind in the quest for truth is another way
of saying: "hindsight is 20/20".
In his seminal work, Actors in the Kingdom, Not Clappers in the
Audience, the Rev. Michael Bray asserted (page 127):
We must view today retrospectively from the vantage point
of the future, so that we don't exempt ourselves from being
God's heroes of the present. History shows over and over that
humanity is most blinded to the evil in its own generation.
Scarcely anyone is able clearly to see the truth of our generation
in our generation. In order to discover the truth of our generation
we have to use the "time machines" in our minds. If you look at
your own generation and see circumstances so remarkable and
incredible that you can hardly believe these things are really
happening, there's an easy way to explain the mystery. Just use
The first step is to clearly define these bizarre, present-day
circumstances. Next, you think back in your studies of history and
find an earlier generation wherein those same circumstances were
present. Then you superimpose today's circumstances onto those
same, identical circumstances which occurred in the past generation.
Then you simply study that generation, and you'll find the truth! It's
easy! Yet, the process is easier to understand if it is worked in reverse.
Sometimes it is possible to use this devise in reverse. If you look
back at history and can't understand why in the world a certain
generation would act in such a strange, unexplainable way, and if
those same circumstances are present in your own generation, then
all you have to do is go around asking your own contemporaries:
"Why are you acting like this? Why do you live your life like this?"
Yet, to make the working of the process crystal clear, let me give you
a practical example of how to use your mental time machine in reverse.
Here's a little experiment you can actually conduct and see the results
with your own eyes...
...If you have some time on your hands, go to the holocaust museum
in Washington, D.C. That museum commemorates Nazi Germany's
slaughter of innocent civilians from 1939-1945. Stand right outside the
entrance and start asking men who are about to enter: "Are you a Christian?"
To the first one who answers yes, ask: "Do you mind if I go through
the tour with you?" He will have no idea what you're up to, so he'll
In that museum they show a movie which reviles that generation
of Germany's Christians, because they just stood around with their
hands in their pockets while innocent people were being slaughtered
nearby. The film points out how, if these "Christians" felt any pity at
all, they showed no evidence of it. [With, of course, a few notable
exceptions like Bonhoeffer and his fellows.]
After watching that film, the other man might shake his head and ask
questions such as: "How could those Christians have been like that"
How could they have allowed it" Could they actually have been genuine
Christians: We couldn't have been like that! I would have had to do
something! How could they not have realized that, with such a tragedy,
it was their UNAVOIDABLE Christian DUTY to do something? What
in the world kind of people were they in Germany that they could just
stand around with their hands in their pockets while innocent people
were being slaughtered nearby?"
If you have mastered your mental time machine, you'll be able to
answer his questions with great authority. Tell him: "I'll tell you
what kind of people they were in Nazi Germany who could just
stand around with their hands in their pockets while innocent people
were being slaughtered nearby. As soon as we walk out of this
museum, take a good look at the very first face you see. That is
the kind of people they were. And the first one hundred people you
will see upon leaving this museum, those are exactly the kind of
people they were in Nazi Germany who could just stand around with
their hands in their pockets while innocent people were being s
slaughtered nearby. And the next time you look in the mirror you
will see what kind of people they were."
At that point, he will prove you are correct, because he won't have
any idea what you're talking about. So you'll have to explain to him
how to use the "time machine" in his mind to discover the truth about
himself and our generation. Explain how to superimpose the
circumstances of one generation onto the same, identical circumstances
in another generation. Point out how the victims of Bill Clinton's
holocaust are identically as human, as worthy, as innocent, and as
helpless as the victims of Adolph Hitler's holocaust. Explain that,
therefore, to whatever degree Hitler's holocaust was intolerable, so is
this one. Tell him that, therefore, to whatever extent German Christians
acted irresponsibly, so do Christian Americans today.
When he says: "No, but you don't understand )) I'm a prolifer, too!"...you can tell him:
"No, but you don't understand )) the German Christians were prolifers,
too! They thought that what the Nazis were doing was BAD! They just didn't think it
was so terribly bad that they had an UNAVOIDABLE Christian DUTY to deal
with it. They thought exactly like American Christians today." Remind him that the exact
same horror which he had just seen in the museum is happening right now
)) within walking distance of where the two of you stand there in Washington, D.C.
Challenge him to go with you to the abortuary. When he tells you he already
has plans for that afternoon, tell him: "Uh huh. The German Christians had other things
to do, too. Just don't be a hypocrite and say you would have done something
about it back then. It wasn't just then, it is now. It is always "now", when uncaring people
who call themselves Christians are not vigilant."
Dear reader, if you were to take the next airline flight to modern day Germany, and look
up some of the octogenarians who were Christians during the holocaust,
and ask them: "Why didn't you do something?" )) what would he say? They'd have to
be ashamed, wouldn't they? They might not know what to say in words.
But the shame they will now show will give you a clue as to why they didn't do
something fifty years ago.
Their shame now means that, fifty years ago, they did not think to look at themselves
"retrospectively, from the vantage point of the future." In 1944 they didn't ask
themselves: "Hey, wait a minute )) how will we appear to people fifty years from now,
in 1994? Won't our apparent apathy and non-involvement seem
shameful...even damnable...to people in 1994?"
And the reason 32,000,000 American babies have been slaughtered, and more are being
slaughtered at this very moment, is because no one in your church is saying:
"Hey, wait a minute )) how will we appear to people fifty years from now, in 2044?
Won't our apparent apathy and non-involvement seem shameful...even
damnable...to people in 2044?"
What did you do in the war, Daddy?
"The only lesson we have ever learned from history is that we do not learn lessons
from history. There is a silly old saying: 'History repeats itself.' History
doesn't repeat itself. It just seems that way, because we keep making the same
stupid mistakes over and over." Joe Bartlett, 1985.
While trying to determine the moral rightness or wrongness of destroying abortion facilities,
I bumped up against our Savior's commandment: "Love your enemies, do
good to them which hate you."
At first glance, it seemed there might be some condemnation of my plan it there.
It would have been easy for me to tell myself: "There! See? You don't have to put
yourself at risk bombing those places! It must not really be the Lord who has laid this
plan on your heart! He wouldn't tell you to violate a Scriptural mandate!"
But I wanted to know the definite truth )) God's truth. If the plan was indeed Godly,
and if that Scripture was not exactly applicable to it, I did not want to twist
the Scripture out of context to use as an excuse for not doing unto the babies
as I surely would want others to do unto me. I used the mental "time machine"
mechanism to find the truth. But before I explain how it worked, let's establish
some common ground for agreement.
Christianity is approximately 2,000 years old. Right? About 2,000 years ago,
our divine Savior was born. At the age of thirty he began His public ministry, preaching
His gospel of salvation. At thirty-three He was crucified for our sins. On the third day
He rose again form the dead. Right? Forty days later He ascended into
heaven. Some time after that, He sent His Holy Spirit down to help the believers.
Right? Now, what I ask you to agree with me on is that, at that point, all
theological truth was permanently established. At least from that point on, no new
theological truths could come into existence. Right? From then on, every valid
doctrine would always be valid, every false doctrine would always be false.
Please forgive me for going so slowly, but I want to prove this thing beyond dispute, because it's extremely
important; and I'm about to tell you a truth so "terrible" that no Christian has dared to
utter it in over twenty years. And that is why our nation is facing imminent destruction.
Please, first, let me ask you to agree with just one more thing. Since all valid,
theological truth is at least 2,000 years old, therefore, if we study the entire two
millennia of church history, and discover a doctrine believed by every generation
of Christians (both Protestant and Catholic) before the 1970's, then we have to
strongly suspect (if not be thoroughly convinced) that that doctrine is absolutely true.
Right? So if "Christian" leaders in the 1970's had started teaching a new thing,
never before believed, in stark contradiction to that which was believed by every earlier
generation, then our ancestors must have been right, and the new
"doctrine" must be a heresy. If you can agree on all these matters, you'll be able to
understand how I resolved the difficulty of destroying abortion chambers ))
enemy targets )) without considering it disobedience to Jesus' commandment:
"Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you."
Bearing in mind that "government"-approved abortion itself is a war crime, I looked
back at the wars devout Catholic and Protestant men had fought in down
through the ages. Most (if not all) of these wars were ones in which justice did indeed
lie on one side. In studying these wars in which Christian men were willing
combatants on the side representing justice, I couldn't find any evidence to indicate
that the Christians loved the enemy soldiers on the other side. Frankly, the
Christian troops seemed to hate their enemies.
I'll only use one war here, World War II. I'll use it because it is so relatively recent,
and because so many Christians fought in it. I noticed that these guys, instead of
turning the other cheek to their enemies, hauled off and shot them with their M-1 rifles.
Now why would they do a thing like that? Sometimes they lobbed 155 mm
howitzer shells into their enemies' midst. Or, like my dad, they'd fly over the enemy
in a B-17 and drop bombs on them. [TBR note: My dad did not drop bombs on
people in a polite manner. He did not bomb them "in a spirit of gentleness and meekness."
Does that sound like a crazy observation? Of course it does. But why? It shouldn't
sound crazy to this generation of lunatics, should it? Why should it sound crazy
to the Vietnam War/Abortion War generation of lunatics whose motto is: "You should
never wage warfare for any cause, but if you do, do it politely."
[Note: Vietnam was the first war ever wherein the good guys were told to fight
politely, following "rules of engagement", while the bad guys were allowed to fight as
dirty as they liked. So if it sounds crazy for me to point out that my dad did not
bomb in a "polite manner" during W.W.II, perhaps it is because when you visualize a
crew of leather jacketed airmen in a lumbering, propeller driven B-17, you don't
think 1944 thoughts )) you think 1994 thoughts! You think normal thoughts!]
11,000,000 American men served in W.W.II. Because Christianity was so widespread
and predominant in those days, it should seem like a safe and honest
estimate to expect that at least 8,000,000 of them made some kind of profession
of faith in Christ, whether through Catholicism or Protestantism. They read the
same Bible as we )) even the King James Version. Why didn't anyone say: "Hey,
wait a minute! We can't be shooting these German (or Japanese) soldiers! After
all, Jesus said: 'Love your enemies'!"
Could so many millions of Christian men all have been wrong? )) to say nothing
of all the generations before them?
Since the Civil War, the U.S. Armed Forces has taken Catholic priests and
ordained ministers of Protestant denominations and commissioned them as active duty
officers. In other words, these chaplains are not outsiders, wearing civilian clothing,
whom the military lets in to preach to the men. They're actual, full-time officers
wearing the same uniform as an infantry officer or any other. Only they don't bear weapons.
Their only duty is to shepherd the men in their company. Why didn't any
of these chaplains tell the men in their care: "You guys can't shoot enemy solders,
we have to love our enemies!"?
Here's a little anecdote I read somewhere a while back. I'm telling it from memory,
but the story included the names and place. I think it happened in W.W.II. On
the eve of a battle, a U.S. Captain was encouraging his men, and at the conclusion
of his speech told them that when they engaged enemy troops the next morning to:
"Give 'em hell!" Then the chaplain gave a little talk and concluded it with:
"Give 'em...what the Captain said to give 'em!"
So here is what the Christian soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines of W.W.II told me.
They told me the truth...the truth which they and all Christian military men
before me had always believed. They told me that when Jesus told us to turn the other
cheek, and to love our enemies and do good to those who hate us, He was
giving us instructions to follow in our interpersonal relationships with our personal enemies ))
not our national enemies during a time of war! And I believe
this with all my heart.
With no doubt in my mind, I believe He did not mean we must love one who is an
active war criminal and an enemy (foreign or domestic) of our nation with the
blood of one of our children still fresh on His hands. Let it be known: I have no love
in my heart whatsoever for abortionists, nor for their aides. I don't love their
allies, not even slightly. I love no member of NOW, Planned Parenthood, the ACLU,
or any such anti-Christian left-winger. Although they may have been born and
raised in this country, they constitute a distinctly separate nation from my people and me.
They slaughter our young, bludgeon our post-natal members [if you don't believe that,
you've had little or no involvement in anti-abortion activism], blaspheme our
God; and if the tyrants who support them hear so much as a peep out of us,
we are persecuted relentlessly.
The pretty men in your church who wear suits, ties, and smiles on Sunday
morning may deny that there is another separate nation, a satanic nation, within our
country's borders waging war against us. They may call such a statement an
exaggeration. If so, that is why these things are happening. Or, just as bad, these pretty
men may admit to the objective facts but say we must love the enemies of our nation
and of our God. They will think such "love" is proof of their spiritual "maturity".
They won't recognize it as the lukewarmness that it is. Tell it to Richard the Lionhearted.
Tell it to Geo. Washington. Tell it to Teddy Roosevelt. Tell it to Sergeant
York. Tell it to my dad. Tell it to Paul Hill.
The wrath of God burns furiously against the USA, and we are poised for destruction.
Why? It is not only because of the rare satanic zeal which kills babies. It is
because of the pervasive lukewarmness which kills babies. You can believe it now,
voluntarily; or you can believe it later, involuntarily. But in the end you will believe
it. If you have not come to believe it before the end, and the Almighty says it to your
face, what will you say? That you still don't believe it?! No. You will
Let me ask you some questions. Be forewarned that the Bible clearly answers these
questions. You will be given verbatim quotes from Scripture and told where
these verses may be found. I am compelled to issue this warning, because even the
questions themselves might be offensive (to Christians of the '90's). So if the
hardness of the questions causes you to throw TBR aside without reading the answers,
and thus you overlook truth, it will be your own fault. But if you read these
answers from the Bible, you will then have to choose between three alternatives.
Either you can say:
1. I believe the Bible and that it means what it says. Or...
2. I believe the Bible, but I think it means something else. Or...
3. I don't believe the Bible at all.
Please choose carefully.
Does Almighty God love everybody, every single individual? Do the righteous
have to love everybody? The Lord God of heaven is omniscient. He has always
known everything, including the future. When He foresaw abortionists David Gunn
and John Britton fall, how did God react? When the righteous heard of the fall of
these two abominations, how should their hearts have reacted? Here are the answers
from the Bible:
The 5th Psalm. To the chief musician upon Ne'-hi-loth, a Psalm of David:
Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation...thou hatest all workers
of iniquity...the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
[TBR note: In the above passage, and elsewhere, the expression "LORD" has not
been written in all capital letters for the purpose of emphasis. That is how it
appears in the Bible )) all caps. Wherever in the Bible it thus appears, it is to signify
that the original manuscript had the ancient Hebrew tetragrammaton there. The
tetragrammaton is four Hebrew letters which are transliterated as YHVH, pronounced:
YAHWEH. This is actually God's sacred name.]
In the last book of the OT, in Malachi 1:2-3,
"I have loved you," saith the LORD, Yet ye say, "Wherein hast thou loved us?"
"Was not Esau Jacob's brother?" saith the LORD: "Yet I loved Jacob, and I
hated Esau, and laid his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness."
[TBR note: In the NT epistle to the Romans, chapter 9:13, Paul quoted a few words
from the above passage: "As it is written, 'Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I
hated'", to make a point.]
Psalm 11, To the chief Musician, a Psalm of David:
The LORD trieth the righteous,...but the wicked His soul hateth. [Verse 5]
Proverbs 3:32 (NKJV):
For the perverse person is an abomination to the LORD.
Proverbs 11:20 (NKJV):
Those who are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the LORD...
16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto Him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
An unjust man is an abomination to the just.
Psalm 15. A Psalm of David (NKJV):
LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill?
He who walks uprightly, And works righteousness, And speaks the truth in his
heart;....In whose eyes a vile person is despised.
Psalm 31. To the chief Musician, a Psalm of David (NKJV):
I have hated those who regard vain idols: but I trust in the LORD. (Verse 6)
Psalm 139 To the chief Musician, a Psalm of David. [TBR note: there are a few
verses in the middle of this Psalm which prolifers love to quote. In those verses
David is saying that God is creating us even while we are in the womb, and that He
knows us even then. I like those sweet verses, too. I like them all. But those
cowards who condemn Paul Hill and who tell you you have to love abortionists ))
you'll never hear them quote this Psalm's concluding verses:
21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with
those that rise up against thee?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and see if there be any
wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
[TBR note: did you notice a certain thing in the passage above? David, king of Israel,
declares to the Lord that he hates the Lord's enemies )) even emphasizing it:
"I hate them with a perfect hatred." (!) And at that exact same moment, in the same
breath, he challenges God to examine his heart and test him to see if there is any
wicked way in him! And what did the Lord say of David? He said David was
"a man after My own Heart"!]
Psalm 119 (the longest chapter of the Bible) verse 158 (NKJV):
I see the treacherous, and am disgusted, Because they do not keep Your word.
Some time before Michael Griffin fatally shot abortionist D. Gunn, Gunn brought
a small bull horn (to sing through) and a battery operated tape player with a song by
rocker Tom Petty. The song? "I won't back down." In the parking lot, he set up
the tape player and proceeded to play the song, singing along with it and doing a
little dance to defy the prolifers. He gnashed his teeth at them and snarled,
"I won't back down," (from their anti-abortion protests).
A photo was taken of him at that very moment. Ironically, whenever USA
Today runs a story on their beloved "martyr", they print that photo showing the
haughty look on his face. You can even see the little bull horn in his hand,
to the viewer's right. Of course, that left-wing brood of vipers at USA
Today won't tell you the whole story. But TBR will. There is one more
detail to tell. The Lord, Who knows the future, foresaw what would happen, and...
12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
13 The LORD shall laugh at him: for He seeth that his day is coming. (Ps 37:12-13)
...The righteous also shall see and fear, and shall laugh at him: "Lo, this is the
man that made not God his strength..."
Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God....Deliver me from the workers of iniquity,
and save me from bloody men....But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; Thou shalt have
all the heathen in derision.
...The wicked are estranged from the womb...He shall take them away as
with a whirlwind, both living, and in His wrath. The righteous shall rejoice when he
seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
So that a man shall say, "Verily, there is a reward for the righteous: verily,
He is a God that judgeth in the earth."
When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the
wicked perish, there is shouting.
Please weigh the preponderance of all the Scriptural evidence with which you
have been presented in these past pages. In closing my case for not loving abortionists
(whom, you are reminded, are our national enemies) I offer one final passage of Scripture,
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up
that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace,
and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak.
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
There are very few (that I know of) who are my enemies on a strictly personal basis
(perhaps no more than one or two). In accordance with Jesus' mandate, I do
love those enemies and pray for them. But during this time of war, this time of grave
national crisis, I do not love any member of this reprobate anti-Christ nation
within our borders which wages war against my Christian nation, against my people.
"There is a time to love, and a time to hate." There could be no more appropriate
time to hate than this one. So if this day were not a time to hate, then the bible
would be untrue. But we know that's not so. The Bible is true.
Now I'll tell you the whole truth. I actually hate these people. That's right.
You read it right. It wasn't a typographical error. I said I hate abortionists. "I hate them
with perfect hatred," as King David said in Psalm 139 (under the inspiration of the
Holy Spirit). But that's not all. I'm telling you I hate abortions; AND I'm still going
to sign off at the end of this column: "Yours-in-Christ," AND I'm not going to feel
the least bit shy about it. All this, in spite of the fact that I am the only Christian
whom you have heard say such a thing in more than twenty years. I'll tell you
something else: there will be plenty of genuine Christians among those who read these
words who will be glad and relieved that someone came right out and said it.
So don't feel lonely.
But if you feel like writing to me to rebuke me, my best advice is: don't bother,
save yourself the price of a 294 stamp. I've studied too long and too hard on the
matter to feel otherwise. The study was struggled over with only the desire to
find truth and please the Lord my God. If I thought my hatred of abortionists was
displeasing to the Lord, don't you think I would repent?
In light of the fact that love is a Christian virtue and a fruit of the Holy Spirit,
does a Christian lightly make a decision to hate abortionists? No, not lightly.
This is serious. Do I flippantly and nonchalantly tell my Christian friends it is okay
for them to hate abortionists , too? No, not flippantly and nonchalantly. Not on your life.
I've had to study long and hard on it, making absolutely sure I was right; because
if I were mistaken, it would be a terrible mistake endangering my soul. Don't you
think I thought of that )) "in fear and trembling?" If I exhorted a Christian brother
or sister to hate abortionists, and if, as a result, he or she did begin to hate
abortionists; and if, then, it was displeasing to God, I'd be in big trouble.
I don't take the Almighty lightly. I revere Him. My only desire is to please Him; and
if I believe He wants me to share something with you, I will not dare to hold it
back )) especially when I know there is no one else who will dare to let himself be
used by God to deliver such a hard message. At least no one else would be
willing to be the first to say it. I fear God, not men.
7 Hearken unto Me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is My
law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.
Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD, I am weary of holding it in.
Jeremiah 6:11 (NKJV)
Friends, I'm sorry. I'm not actually apologizing. I'm just sorry that this issue has had
only hard material. Don't you think I wish I could have written nice things? Easy
to read things? Don't you think I wish there was someone else to reveal these hard
but true parts of the Bible to you? But there is not. So if I don't do it, it won't get
done. And "man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth
out of the mouth of God."
The false teachers on the radio, TV, and in the pulpits only mention the nice true
parts of the Bible. Yes, I'm talking about those wolves in sheep's clothing who say:
"Hate the sin, and love the sinner," in a tone of voice as if that is a verse to be found
in the Bible, but it is not. And let me say this: although those words do not
appear in the Bible, I freely admit that they constitute good Christian advice ))
but only during a time of genuine peace, honorable peace )) not during a time
of war while a sinner's sin is the mutilation slaughter of the innocent.
Until the next issue, I'm still...
