Eugene Prewitt: The Adventist Jordan Peterson

Eugene Prewitt is a Speaker who has started missionary schools in Malaysia.

Eugene William Prewitt is the Adventist Jordan Peterson. Its like what would happen if Jordan Peterson became a Christian with Faith in Jesus Christ. He speaks his mind without fear and bases everything upon the Word of God. I had the opportunity to interview him and talk about many subjects, including his message to the Church if he should be killed.

If you’re born in India, you’re a Hindu. If you’re born in Greece, you’re orthodox, but if you’re born in Afghanistan You’re a Muslim. If you’re born in Thailand, you’re a Buddhist. If you’re born in the Southern United States, you’re a Christian. If you’re born in China, there is a good chance you’re an Atheist or a Buddhist. I think that’s ridiculous, Its ridiculous that people when it comes to something so important as religion, would base their belief system primary on what their parents and great-grandparents believe. Lets not assume that we have the right religion. Lets back up and ask enough questions so that if we just so happen to be born in the wrong country, we can arrive at the Truth based on the Data.

Confronting White Supremacy

Spencer Goes to the Black Jewish Justice Alliance Heschel/King Forum with his MAGA gear to ask a very simple question. “What is White Supremacy?”

The following is a very in-depth conversation amongst activists about the idea of White Supremacy.

The Following other topics were also discussed.
– Being a Jew.
– Pretending to the Roman Catholic.
– Trying to acheive a world where you don’t assume someone’s gender.
– Hair as apart of culture.

The conversation wasimpactful beacuse no one expected a Young Black Conservative to show up asking very simple questions.

What I learned is that White Supremacy is so prevasive, so integral, so ingrained and embedded in Western Society that it is invisible! And one of the youth on a panel told me that White Supremacy is to the point in our society that if you removed it, you would not see ANY difference in our society! INCREDIBLE! I hope I’m able to come back and have such transformative dialogue!

Encountering White Supremacy here sponsored by the #blackjewish Justice Alliance was a wonderful way to look inside the minds of The Left. There is Hope for the Future Guys!

God Emperor Trump

It is no secret that I’ve supported the Republican nominee for President: But some people take it a bit too far. This week I was at a rally in Los Angeles for Travis Allen, who is running for Governor of California. There after the rally a lady was going around saying that everyone should read a certain book. Naturally, because of the way I am, I ask why? The interaction went like this:

Jewish Uber Ride

On my Uber ride to work the driver asked me what I was going to do this weekend. I say: “I’m going to Church on Saturday, and idk what Sunday i’m going to do”.
He says ” You go to Church on Saturday?!”
I say: “Yeah”
he then says: “Why”?
“I’m a Seventh-day Adventist Christian, I believe that all of Christ’s Commandments are still applicable to Christians. We also believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah and He is coming soon!”
“When does Sabbath start?”
“Friday night to Saturday night!”
he then says: “Wow i’m Jewish and that’s when the Sabbath starts!”
Because we were about halfway there, I had to cut to the chase:
“So what is stopping you from becoming a Christian?”
He then says:
“You know i’ve grown up Jewish and my parents are Jewish”
I then say:
“You know your parents are Jewish, but you need to find God for yourself. You can’t get by on the faith of your parents. Faith is something that you need to have when you can have confidence in God. The Bible–especially in the book of Daniel– can give you confidence in God based on what He has done in the past”
He’s like: “yeah I see”
I then find a tract in my backpack for “A Love Letter from Jesus” I need to start carrying more diverse ones but this one fit.
 
So many people interact with Faith based on the beliefs of their parents. The guy was Jewish (or claimed to be) based on his parents, but he didn’t have any conviction for himself. I’ve met many people who come from Jewish families and seem to be based on their parent’s faith. It is not an exclusively jewish thing, but it is prevalent. 
 
Jesus is my Hero, and He has saved the day and my life.
 
But for some others, He is just a name.
 
Jesus stands at the door and knocks, but He waits until the person comes and opens the door. He doesn’t force people and His forgiveness covers a multitude of sins. 
 
I interact best with people who are on a search for Truth. My Uber driver started reading the tract as soon as I handed it to him. Heaven must be in the business of causing encounters with people who are on the search and who have a little faith. I like talking with people who are atheists or people who are certain about their philosophy of Truth, because that is a common ground we can communicate on. People who simply don’t care, or who are too caught up in the cares of this life are really boring people. I came to have Faith in the Son of God through investigation, and that seems to be my vehicle for sharing what I have found. 

God has to be your Treasure. He has to be the One in the center of your life. When God is in your Heart, He will be the thing that you keep closest to you. For some people it may be their car, their bike, their house; but for those who love God, God will be their Treasure, the thing they keep closest.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. –Matthew 6:21
 My Jesus, I am Yours!

Banning Christmas

The Christmas Holy Day should be banned. The gifts, the celebrations, the parties, the whole nine years, Santa included, should be thrown out and buried. At least that is what the Puritan Christians proposed and accomplished in America the Land of the Free.

For preventing disorders arising in several places within this jurisdiction, by reason of some still observing such festivals as were superstitiously kept in other countries, to the great dishonor of God and offence of others, it is therefore ordered by this Court and the authority thereof, that whosoever shall be found observing any such day as Christmas or the like, either by forbearing of labor, feasting, or any other way, upon such accounts as aforesaid, every such person so offending shall pay for every such offence five shillings, as a fine to the country. — Records of the Governor and Company of the Massachusetts Bay in New England 1659

This was passed in 1659, before the founding of The United States of America, during a time where the majority of people were not only Christians, but a good portion of these were legalistically devout Christians. The Christmas Ban was enacted because of certain reasons given here:

  1. Preventing disorder.
  2. Christmas is a superstitious festival that brings dishonor to God.

These two ideas are linked, but lets explore them.

 Today there is a practice of singing songs about Christmas door to door. This we know as Caroling. In the past, in Europe and in America, people would go door to door singinging, but they would be drunk, and they would go into rich people’s neighborhoods and houses and demand that they be fed . I know I would not like it if a bunch of people came into my house demanding that I give them food. This practice around Christmas time was known as wassailing. Christmas was a festival that would be wrought with people acting crazy. This led to lots of disorder. The very act of drunkenness goes back much much further to pagan Roman times, the wassail was just carried forward into Christmas .

The Puritans were not the first group to ban Christmas. In 1583, the Scottish Presbyterians had already concluded that there was no biblical reason to celebrate Christmas . Identifying it as a baptized pagan holiday. Christmas, which means the Mass (Celebration) of Christ, was associated with the Roman Catholic Church, and because the Protestant Christians viewed Catholicism as the Antichrist, they called Christmas “Antichrist’s Mass” . It is true that there is no biblical command to celebrate Christmas. The day itself comes from pagan origins, many think that the Christians began celebrating it in Europe on that day because while the Romans had something to celebrate, the Christians would do their own celebration. During this time of the year, the pagans would dress up as animals and go door to door. When the Church came into power, this practice was banned under pain of excommunication . (it looks like this pagan practice switched over into Halloween)

Things like the Yule Log, Pagan. Mistletoe, Pagan. These things were taught to ward off demons. People had the belief that someone who was born on Christmas day had the power to see spirits and demons and was able to remove them .  The entire season was filled with things taken straight out of unchristian festivals and made Christian. The Christmas season lasted twelve days and during those days no type of work was to be performed, it was a Sabbath.  Maybe the idea was to give people something to look forward to during the winter time, it became a season of much celebration and ungodly disorder. The Twelfth day of Christmas was supposed to be the day the Wise Men came to Baby Jesus and brought Him the gifts. By the time the custom got to the seventeenth century, the Twelfth day of Christmas became the largest party ever, with an incredible amount of alcohol being used .  The entire time and customs lend reasoning to why the Puritans and the Presbyterians banned it.

Even though it was banned, Christmas did not die out. In 1679 four young men invaded the house of a farmer and began to sing Christmas songs. They then asked for alcohol, were pushed out then began terrorizing other people. People kept Christmas indoors and out of sight. In the year 1681 under pressure from England, the ban was lifted. Reforms were made to take out much of the debauchery that had plagged the holiday.

Today, Christmas might be banned under a different pretense. The holiday has lost much of its meaning as people focus on the exchanging of Gifts more than the Birth of Christ . Even though everyone in the 1600’s went to Church on Christmas morning, they seemed to like the other parts of the celebration more than reflection upon Jesus. Christians today seem to be following in the same path. Many Christians also see no problem with the idea of Santa Claus, injecting the very idea of earthly, temporary gifts as a substitute for the eternal, infinite gift of Eternal Life; even lying to their kids about it instead of telling their kids about the One who is Truth Himself, and basing it on works-righteousness (“Knows when you’re sleeping and awake”).

Many people like to get into debates about the day, no one knows the day of the Birth of Christ and I don’t think it matters. The fact that a pagan holiday was used to celebrate the Birth of Jesus is unfortunate. I am glad that Christianity did eventually win out, but history shows that many of the unchristian rituals were baptised into the Celebration (Mass) of Christ.

Maybe we need to thinking about banning Christmas, until we can reform it to be the day where people think not of their own selves, but on the One who is the reason for the season. If not, then history will repeat itself.

— Merry (Mighty) Christmas.

The Christian Response Toward Extraterrestrial Life

Many today ask the question “Are We Alone” and we look toward the sky. Hollywood has even given us some perspective as to what that question would entail if answered in the affirmative. Will the response be more of an “Independence Day” type of situation or a more “Men in Black” reality. Whatever the outcome, whether they be peaceful or not, Christians already have all the answers as to what will happen (or rather, how we’ll respond) when undeniable extraterrestrial contact is made.

The Non-Christian Perspective

Those who believe that humanity appeared on earth without any guidance, point to the immense odds of life developing on earth. Someone had said that a 747 had a better chance of crashing into millions of pieces and rearranging itself back together in midair than the chance of life developing randomly on earth. If we look at the “fine-tuning” argument, which states that our planet is ‘tuned’ in such a way as to promote the development of life, we have to then consider the immense number of stars in existence that fit into this criteria. We can be liberal and take a more generous route and say that life doesn’t have to even be organic. If we then identify a trillion planets that fit into the condition to support any type of life, will that be enough? No. We must then drill down and look at how many of these trillion planets can pull off the miracle of spontaneously generated life. If macroevolution is true and one planet can pull it off, then many parts of Christianity would immediately come into question. However, Christians can easily write this off by explaining that the Bible describes life not for every planet, but for Our planet. There would still be debate as to if humanity evolved from other life forms. If the life was intelligent enough to communicate then it stands to reason that they could not even attest to how they originated.

For independently evolved life to reach the “Independence Day” level stage, many things would have to happen. Besides the above, this life would have to manage to acquire philosophy (which is needed in order to develop mathematics and reasoning to develop technology in the first place), develop technology, and develop the will to pull of long-term space exploration. The will to do this is important for any species willing to travel out of their solar system. Humans still haven’t traveled to another planet, not because of technology or finances, but because of will . (We feel better sending robots to do that kind of thing). Also, this life would have to develop some kind of military. (So we can keep this like “Independence Day”).

The odds of life reaching that stage are as close to zero as you can get. Because evolution hasn’t been demonstrated to occur without some purpose driving it, the odds simply become too great. Combined with the sheer lack of planets that can even support life, and the distances those planets are from one another, the chances of an apoloptyptic type event with an independently evolved intelligent life form are nil.
But what would happen if that life didn’t evolved, but was purposed?

The Christian View

A peculiar problem for Christians

Many of the world’s other religions will adjust easily to a realization of other intelligent civilizations. Islam could teach that other prophets such as Muhammad were sent in a similar fashion to other planets. Hinduism could teach that there are other deities to watch over other civilizations.
But Christianity has a particular problem…

Colossians 1:13-18 For He delivered us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. And He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities– all things have been created by Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything.

God Himself has arrived on earth to save the human race (us). This deliverance will be later shown to be a unique event. This of course assumed that other civilizations are like us….sinners.

Christians are OK with Extraterrestrial Life

Extraterrestrial life isn’t an unknown entity in Christianity. Christians have proclaimed for centuries that this planet have been visited numerously by beings from outer space.

KJV Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

God lives outside of this Earth, as a matter of fact it was created by Him. But this isn’t the only time where the Bible records beings from space visiting Earth.

Genesis 11:5-7 5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. 6 And the LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them. 7 “Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”

The Ancient world was visited by Extraterrestrial creatures, and they have influenced human history. Most of these beings have been messengers from God sent to earth not for destruction, but to transmit information or comfort.

Hints at Other Civilizations

Job 1:6-7 6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. 7 And the LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Then Satan answered the LORD and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.”

Artist depiction of the event in Job. Do not take this to mean that everyone in heaven is Anglo-Saxon (This will come up in a later article)

The Bible tells a story of a group of beings stationing themselves in array before Yahweh. Imagine the scene: thousands upon thousands are gathered in a structure for a presentation. The sight might resemble the Parade of Nations from the Olympics. The difference here is that instead of nations presenting themselves before the world, its worlds presenting themselves before the universe. The sight is amazing.

But then something interesting happens. Satan (the accuser) walks down the parade/presentation line. The one who caused war in Heaven is now in the presence of God representing Earth. Notice how the LORD does not challenge the claim of Satan, for the Earth was the authority of Satan. This can be seen from the answer that Satan gives “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.” (Verse 7)

Satan clearly thought that the world was his. Even though God owns everything in the universe, He did not contest the fact with Satan.

If we do have a parade of nations, or in this case a parade of worlds situation that does indeed occur, then this would require the existence of other civilizations. These would have to represent unfallen worlds. These worlds could not have been fallen, or in the same situation of sin as Earth is in for a number of reasons:

  1. Satan doesn’t respond by saying he is from both Earth and Planet X. If the existence of Planet X was true, then it is certain that Satan would have mentioned that planet also.
  2. Satan doesn’t mention any other planet that he has control over. From Genesis thru Revelation, no other type of civilization is mentioned that Satan also controls.
  3. If the existence of another fallen world existed, then that would present numerous problems with how salvation is applied to these worlds.

a. Hebrews 9:25-28 25 nor was it that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the holy place year by year with blood not his own. 26 Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. 27 And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, 28 so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, shall appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.

The writer of Hebrews makes the assertion that Christ is better than the blood of Lambs and Rams in part because unlike them, Christ was only sacrificed once. His blood can be applied often and continuously, unlike the animals.

It also says that once at the consummation of the ages that He gave himself. Hebrews doesn’t hint at any other possible way of paying the penalty for sin except through the single sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross.
If another fallen world existed, it would be without God’s grace. Would such a world be better off destroyed? If it was not destroyed, and God allowed that world to come into contact with the one humanity is on, then what would that signify?
There would be a couple of lessons learned.

  1. A prime example of what sin would look like unchecked, without the possibility of redemption. To have a world like that in existence would serve as a warning to those on earth.
  2. Their contact with us would represent one of two plans:
    1. They want to destroy God’s people by force.
    2. They want to transform the earth into a place like theirs, free of the influence of God. This may be the most likely of the two plans.

So, what happens when they arrive?

Three Perspectives:

Angels

There are three reactions on this that we can tackle. First, is the view that these space creatures are holy Angels. People who hold this view tend to because they will replace all instances of God in the Scriptures and replace them with these space creatures. They might even go on to worship these creatures. Worship of these beings would be expressly prohibited by Scripture.

Revelation 22:8-9 8 And I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed me these things. 9 And he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and of your brethren the prophets and of those who heed the words of this book; worship God.”

Worship is an action that belongs only to God. It does not belong to anyone else. If these people who worship these aliens interpret these beings to be God, then it raises serious questions as how they relate to these verses.

Demons

Demons are simply fallen angels. Many in the Christian community will automatically arrive at this conclusion. Such passages of Scripture as the one below may help them in their cause.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 3 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their deeds.

It is entirely possible that Satan will make himself known to the people of earth in public. When this occurs, many will declare him an Alien, others will declare him to be an Angel, and others will say he is some type of messiah. This could happen and the view is supported by the above scripture. It will be an illusion, but it is one that will work on some people.

Neither Angels nor Demons

This would be the most perplexing situation…if it were possible. God’s sovereign rule over the entire universe necessitates knowledge of Him in every civilization. (Philippians 2:10,11) Any other fallen world would therefore be under the control of Satan. Therefore, it is not possible that there could be a “secular” alien civilization.

Conclusion

An “independence day movie style” type event is prohibited by Christianity. It is prohibited because there isn’t a civilization that is “secular” in any sense of the word. The book of Job presents a clear view of not only the existence of other intelligent civilizations, but it shows that they have meetings in which they discuss matters of intergalactic importance. The current evidence reveals that out of these many intelligent civilizations that exist, only ours have pledged allegiance to Satan. The cross was the decisive moment in the battle for the universe in which God did what no other human could have done. It is apparent that these civilizations are barred from direct communication with humanity, so any contact with non-human intelligence would have to be those directly responsible in the process of salvation for humanity. When Satan is permitted by God to show himself to the world, it will most likely not be as the liar he truly is. He will come as an impostor.

Therefore it is important for Christians to realize how important it is to learn about these things. Yes, it may be classified as a theology of the edges…for now. Understanding that alien intelligences aren’t neutral in this battle between good and evil will give Christians the advantage when they arrive.

 

If a super-intelligent species was discovered, how would you respond? Respond in the comment section below.

Does God Care?

As one who observes life’s happenings, it is not uncommon for one to feel like Solomon while he was writing the book of Ecclesiastes. In Ecclesiastes 9:11-12 Solomon says:

11 I have seen something else under the sun:

The race is not to the swift
or the battle to the strong,
nor does food come to the wise
or wealth to the brilliant
or favor to the learned;
but time and chance happen to them all.

12 Moreover, no one knows when their hour will come:

As fish are caught in a cruel net,
or birds are taken in a snare,
so people are trapped by evil times
that fall unexpectedly upon them.

We grow up hearing nice things like: “All men are created equal” and “if you work hard you will live a happy life” but it doesn’t take much living for one to realize that although these sayings sound good on paper, they are not always true. In my 20 years of life, I have come to the sad reality that the race is not always won to the swift but that chance, indeed, does happen to everyone. In this light, it is so easy for one to question if God cares for his creation. Why do bad things happen to good people? Why are there so many that die from starvation? Why are the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer? Why doesn’t God just intervene and make things perfect? These questions are very valid and they demand a logical response. We often are quick to point the finger to God for the issues of this world but the sad question that we must face is: what good would it do for God to intervene and make everything perfect if mankind will just mess it up again? Remember, in the garden, after all of creation was made God said it was good, but when man disobeyed God, sin entered and corrupted this perfect world. This is the root of the problem. The reason why there are so many issues in the world is because people are so unwilling to be obedient. In Matthew 22:37-40, when Jesus was asked what was the greatest commandment Jesus replied with two:

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets

God’s greatest commands to man are to love Him and our fellow man but it is because we don’t love our fellow man that there is so much suffering in the world. If we kept just these two commandments, the world would be a better place. The thing I love about Ecclesiastes is that Solomon gets depressed about life because he realizes how vain it could be but the one thing he professes not to be vain is keeping God’s commandments. For he says in Ecclesiastes 12:13-14:

13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Therefore, rather than asking: “Does God Care?” We should ask, do we care enough to obey God’s commands?
