Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Richard Land Needs to Read His Bible

In a recent Politico article, Southern Baptist big shot, Richard Land said of amnesty for illegals:
First and foremost, it’s a kingdom issue, and, second, it’s a moral issue, “We have hundreds of thousands of Hispanic Southern Baptists and many of them are undocumented. … It’s no secret that we practice aggressive evangelism. Many of these people were converted after they got here.”
 Newsflash, Dr. Land, national sovereignty is important to God.  There are a lot of dry passages in the Old Testament where He painstakingly describes the boundaries of the Promised Land as well as each tribe's portion. It's great that we're reaching Hispanics for Christ, but that doesn't mean that our established law no longer applies. He then goes on to equivocate in the article that Hispanics will turn out to be easier to Americanize.

“Realistically, I think it is probably more politically feasible to do this because the overwhelming majority of the people that we’re talking about come from a European civilization,” said Land. “It would be more problematic if we had 12 [million] to 14 million undocumented people and they were either Oriental or Islamic. … Whether that is right or wrong, I’m just giving you a realistic political calculation.”
 Consider Acts 17:26:
And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
Mexico is a dangerous place these days and the Gospel is more easily accepted by those under hardship. I would like less political calculation out of SBC leaders, and more consideration of the times in which we live. Forces are at work to disintegrate national sovereignty by making borders meaningless. This lines up with what the Bible prophesies as the One World Government. Why such an education theologian as Richard Land can't see that is beyond me. For anyone interested, I have an End-Times Scriptures tab at the top with a special intro by Sir Isaac Newton himself. I also have on the left roll, Unveiling the End Times in Our Times by Dr. Adrian Rogers, most of it is free on Google Books.

So anyone want to take three guesses as to what other organization Dr. Richard Land belongs to? Check it out below the fold.

Check it out here - Yes, that's the Council on Foreign Relations. I'm not looking for them, they've just got people everywhere!

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?   - II Corinthians 6:14-15


  1. Isn't it funny how some people seem think Jesus can only be found in America? Less funny is the fact that people want to twist the Bible's message to fit whatever the current definition of "compassion" is. Sigh.

    One thing I've noticed in my latest turn through the OT is that the security of a nation's borders is directly related to that nation's relationship with God. He's not in the habit of defending unGodly people from invasions, is He?

  2. So true Cindy, we're cruising for a bruising, but I'm praising God that He's already there.

    I think of those Christians you read about in Voice of the Martyrs magazine. I'm sure they'd love to live the US too, but many say that God has given them purpose in their suffering and they have been winning many over by their witness. I'm not sure what the SBC's mission plan is for Mexico, but with all the violence, it would seem like they need to hear the "Good News."

  3. I think Richard Land is big on Social Justice, and he sees the millions of Hispanics as low hanging fruit. Just my opinion:-) I've written about him but can't find the post now. I think it was about the National Council of Churches - or as I like to refer to them, The National Council of Churches - Far Left and Dangerous.

  4. The mainline churches got "took out" years ago with the social gospel heresy, with some help from the NCC. Looks like they've recruited their latest useful idiot in Richard Land to start trying to get the Southern Baptists to fall away also.
