Christians need to become aware of the ways in which the authority of the Bible over the centuries has influenced the expansion of diverse cultic quasi religious organisations, connected intimately with mainstream Christianity, that are obsessed with the lust of ‘military solutions’ to spiritual and cultural issues. The language, customs and belief systems of these cults draw on the theo-military narrative of the Old Testament, the old wineskin, which entails a long tradition of feeding European leaders, like Richard the Lionheart and Archbishop of Canterbury Baldwin of Exeter, with the raw meat of the crusading theology of theologians like Bernard of Clairvaux who appealed to the warped minds of Christendom’s rapacious nobility. The theology of justifiable war finds expression in the historical narrative of a plethora of Religious Orders who draw on texts in the Old Testament for their inspiration to make Jesus a null word.
Many of these cults today display signs and symbols used by The Knights of the Templar – who were a crusading horde of demonic knights that vandalised the Middle East for 200 years under various Popes and Provincial Emperors in the MiddleAges using Jesus’ name in vain. The Spirit of Jesus Christ had nothing whatsoever to do with the hundreds of years of military campaigns by crusaders, not even a little bit. The spiritual descendants of these non-Christian soldiers are active in US and UK military operations in the Middle East today, ensuring the incestuous relationship between Church and Military is kept locked together under the banner of ‘The Bible’.
Here’s a snippet from The Economist:
Now two former employees are accussing Erik Prince, Blackwater’s boss, of wanting to start a religious crusade against Muslims. In an affidavit lodged with a court in Virginia, one of the witnesses said that Mr Prince “views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe.” The statement continues
To that end, Mr. Prince intentionally deployed to Iraq certain men who shared his vision of Christian supremacy, knowing and wanting these men to take every available opportunity to murder Iraqis. Many of these men used call signs based on the Knights of the Templar, the warriors who fought the Crusades.
Mr. Prince operated his companies in a manner that encouraged and rewarded the destruction of Iraqi life. For example, Mr. Prince’s executives would openly speak about going over to Iraq to “lay Hajiis out on cardboard.” Going to Iraq to shoot and kill Iraqis was viewed as a sport or game. Mr. Prince’s employees openly and consistently used racist and derogatory terms for Iraqis and other Arabs, such as “ragheads” or “hajiis.”
