Freedom of Speech

I have been studying the Holocaust lately. One thing that I am starting to notice is the similarities that are going on today. So I get a book at the Frisco library called “Tell them we remember”. Hitler was appointed Chancellor in Germany in 1933 and many of the people had believed they had found a savior for their nation. He came promoting a better life for the people and “Change”. This blew me away. The first thing Hitler did when he came to power was that he persuaded his Cabinet to end individual freedoms like: freedom of the press and freedom of speech. The other day I watched a movie called “Expelled” written by Ben Stein. It starts out interviewing professors in college universities who got fired for teaching intelligent design. Some are even getting blackballed for their political and religious beliefs. They got fired for just mentioning creationism or intelligent design. Then of course the movie starts going on about the Holocaust and the hospital where they started killing deformed babies and people with disabilities. One guy Ben interviewed claimed that the Nazis were Darwinists and that is why they were killing people there. While watching this movie I started thinking about the clip by Ray Comfort “180.org” that I watched last week. It is a movie about abortion and the Holocaust and how they are similar. The people in this movie were just totally ignorant on the Holocaust. Allot of the young people interviewed have never even heard of the Holocaust and did not know who Hitler was. This also freaked me out. It has been said that if a nation forgets History that it will repeat itself. In Austria a person gets thrown in prison for claiming the Holocaust did not happen. So why is it that all these things happening now are similar to the Holocaust? It is really strange that the Lord led me to study all these things on the Holocaust. I believe that satan is using the same tactics as he always does. He is subtle and he hates mankind. 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust. Over 53 million babies have been murdered since 1973 Roe vs. Wade was passed. Our freedom of speech is being attacked and our freedom is being taken away slowly. If a person today speaks out and claims that marriage is between one man and one woman, it is considered “hate speech” by some today. So why is it that our freedom of speech is under attack? Words are powerful. Our words that come out of our mouths are very important and it is all throughout the bible on how important they are. Why do people get offended when we say Jesus? Because the name “Jesus” means one who saves and the people that get offended are the ones who are not saved. They are under the influence of satan and do not realize they are. The devil knows how important our words are and if he can get Christians to shut their mouths, then nobody could get saved. Think about it. The reason we got saved was because some Christian planted the seed in our heart. God’s word is like seeds being planted in our hearts. Why do people get offended when we say that Jesus is the only way to get to heaven? Because He is God and His 1st commandment says there is only One God and we are to not have any other gods before Him. The devil knows that Jesus is the only way and he is deceiving the whole world into believing that there are many ways to get to heaven. Most of our founding fathers of this country were true Christ followers and they knew how important our freedom of speech was, which is why they implemented freedom of speech. Jesus did say that we as Christians will be persecuted for His Names sake, but does that mean we are supposed to back down and just wait for Him to come get us. No, I do not believe so. We are to stand up and SPEAK. Tell others boldly, in love, that Jesus Christ is the one and only True God. Just as there was only one door to get into Noah’s Ark, there is only one door into heaven and that one door is Jesus Christ. (John 10:9)
