FEMA Judas Goats
It’s Official – Preachers to be Used as Judas Goats for FEMA
By Pastor Greg Dixon
Over fifteen years ago, this preacher stood on a tent platform at the summer camp meeting of Heritage Baptist University, and gave documented evidence to the attending pastors and evangelists that the day was coming when preachers would be used in a national emergency to calm the people. I warned that without federal credentials, preachers would not be able to pass through emergency barricades to preach to their congregations or to visit their members, and anyone who tried would receive a shotgun blast to their belly.
One of the leading pastors of the area followed me to the platform and extended a kind rebuke for such a sermon. That preacher, who was a dear and precious friend of mine, is with the Lord now. However, we are still living in the nasty now and now, and the time that I predicted has come. It is far worse than any of us realized at the time. That was just the tip of the iceberg. In this article, and the other one in this issue of The Trumpet dealing with the censorship of the reading material in the prisons of America, we are beginning to see the big picture. Hang on, reader, for a wild and wooly ride.
All of my life, I have heard of the Judas goat. In the slaughterhouse, it is a goat that has been trained to associate with the sheep or cattle, and then leads them to slaughter while its own life is spared. Judas goats are also used to lead other animals to specific pens and onto trucks for market. The term is a reference to the Biblical traitor Judas Iscariot. According to several news articles in the secular press, the federal government plans to use the preachers of America in this role, hoping their dumbed-down teaching on Romans Chapter 13 will do the trick.
WorldNetDaily sounded the alarm on August 18, 2007, with the words, “Testing The Faith.” The headline said:
Clergy to be used to quell dissent – Program trains leaders to convince people to obey emergency orders.
TV Station Reporter Jeff Ferrell on KSLA said Clergy response teams had already been used when hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.
Emergency Preparedness Director Sandy Davis explained to KSLA that the Clergy would already be known to people in the neighborhoods and they could explain the need to follow orders. “KSLA has discovered that the clergy would help the government with potentially their biggest problem: Us,” the report said. Durell Tuberville, Chaplain of the Shreveport Fire Department said, the team’s mission sentiment was, “Let’s cooperate and get this thing over with and then we’ll settle the differences once the crisis is over.” So government orders to abandon homes, turn over guns, leave livestock behind, or whatever would come to the minds of various officials during an “emergency,” would be easier for people to accept, the report indicated.
One of the biggest tools the clergy members would use would be the Bible itself, specifically Romans 13, where Tuberville said the Bible states “the government’s established by the Lord, you know. And, that’s what we believe in the Christian faith. That’s what’s stated in the Scripture.” Civil rights advocates have raised questions about the idea of using clergy in such a fashion, noting the balance clergy would have to maintain when asked to do what the government wants under color of their status as a religious leader. A blogger for the Christian education site, Chalcedon noted that the training has been going on in secret for over a year already.
The reporter also said that, “The clergy are being advised to use Romans 13 to encourage parishioners to submit to the sudden and massive expansion of government control that takes place during martial law.”
We know that many pastors came forth after the Hitler and Stalinist regimes and confessed that they had been double agents. While they had served their congregations in their pastoral duties, they at the same time served their socialist and communist masters as spies on their own flocks. We now have the well-established documentation that a communist was the Senior Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Moscow, and associate pastors who were communists served communion, baptized converts and performed marriages. Why should we be surprised that they have infiltrated even our Fundamental Baptist churches here in America?
In December 1998, three of us unregistered Baptist preachers, all having been formerly in the Baptist Bible Fellowship International, were given the opportunity to present the incorporation issue to the BBFI Directors in the city of Atlanta. During the proceedings, a past President of the Fellowship, a highly respected individual, stood up and said, “The IRS is our friend.” The statement went unchallenged, except for myself who had the floor. This man has pastored one of the largest churches in the BBFI and has been one of their most respected “ministers” for many years. It’s difficult to believe that a man of his knowledge and experience could possibly be that naive. However, he was one of those who influenced the BBFI to work out a deal with the IRS to create a member church relationship for the churches listed in the BBFI directory with IRS approval and recognition some years ago. This is the main reason that the Indianapolis Baptist Temple was forced to remove their name from the directory. It was a legal as well as a doctrinal issue with us, although in our opinion, there is not really an appreciable difference.
Pressure to Compromise
The following information should be sufficient to show that the goal to use the pastors of America as pawns of the New World Order started many years ago. It also should give additional proof that the information that we have been sharing with our readers for several years concerning the October 1998 secret White House meeting, laying out the five pronged plan to eliminate all uncooperative churches, is beginning to make sense. This entire plan may be found in the 2000 Power of Prophecy Newsletter authored by Texe Marrs of Austin, Texas. A mini version can be found in the July/August 2001 Trumpet archives at www.unregisteredbaptistfellowship.com. It can also be found on page 78 of our book The Trail of Blood Revisited.
This Day in Baptist History II by David L. Cummins and E. Wayne Thompson, published by BJU Press, Greenville, South Carolina, contains an intriguing entry for September 23 (p. 521) out of the ministry of Pastor Cummins that will shed much light on the subject at hand. But before this fascinating story is revealed, some background information needs to be explored.
Bro. Cummins returns to a theme oft repeated in his excellent second volume of the highly recommended Baptist History series. He says, “In our current society…the pressures are mounting again to bring about mind control and uniformity of conviction. This can be expected to proliferate…with the growth of an ecumenical religious organization. …at this point in time the pressure is not brought about by the threat of physical violence, but peer pressure continues to climb.”
Throughout both volumes, the authors seem to reassure the readers that in America, we only have pressure of moral and ecumenical compromise, not governmental pressure. We are free to preach the gospel and carry out our God ordained mission, etc. This is precisely the reason that the authors, Bob Jones University, Pensacola Christian College, Baptist Bible College, and most of the other Fundamental and Evangelical Bible Colleges and Seminaries were either silent or consented to the crucifixion of the Indianapolis Baptist Temple in 2001 when a federal judge ordered federal marshals to raid the church because of the congregation’s central belief in the Lordship of Jesus Christ over the Church. Shall we take time to discuss the violence against street preachers, and against those involved in opposing the baby killing industries in this country? Ask them about the physical violence that they have had to endure for decades.
Neither do Cummins, Thompson, Attorney David Gibbs, Jr. of the CLA, most other “Christian” lawyers, and the other leading preachers of America see that church Incorporation, regulation, tax exemption, and receiving 501(c)(3) status, is not ecumenical compromise, but civil compromise. It is compromise with governmental authorities, contrary to the Scriptures and the First Amendment, which as God’s gift to a free people, we have despised.
Now back to the Cummins story. In 1961, he was the pastor of a Baptist church in a Detroit, MI suburb when he was asked by the city officials if he would be willing to represent the community in a government-supervised training school. The Office of Civil and Defense Mobilization was training religious leaders in preparation for a possible nuclear attack by the Soviet Union during the Cold War. He said, “After concluding that my participation would not violate my conviction against ecumenical involvement, and that the training might be beneficial in preparing me to serve the population as a community leader, I consented to attend the school. The material was presented at Sheepshead Bay, NY at a Coast Guard center. I lived in the barracks and attended daily classes.” He went on to say that there were about 40 clergymen in his class and that they received lectures and saw graphic films of atomic destruction.
One scene pictured those “who were prepared” safely “ensconced” in shelters until the radiation fallout had dissipated. The instructor spoke of “our being confronted by a young mother . . . who was holding a dying infant in her arms. Seeing a chaplain’s insignia on our arm, she hurried to our side and pled with us to give the ‘last rites’ to her dying child.” The question was, “What would you do?”
To Bro. Cummins’ everlasting credit, when the instructor asked those preachers who would comply and give the last rites, he was the only one who refused to raise his hand. When asked why, he explained before the entire class that the so-called “last rites” were meaningless, and that he would have presented the gospel to the mother. He said that there was a gasp among those present and some yelled, “He should have never been ordained,” among other things.
We do not fault Bro. Cummins for not seeing the big picture in 1961. But those who were making plans for us did see the big picture. Bro. Cummins, who is concerned over ecumenism – as well he should be – didn’t see that the main purpose of the training session wasn’t for preparedness Preparedness was secondary. The main purpose was to train the preachers in America for ecumenism.
Parole Officer Asks Pastor for Members’ SSI Numbers
Things are moving so fast that we can’t begin to keep up with everything, but we will try to keep things on our web site at www.unregisteredbaptistfellowship.com. A pastor who graduated from Temple Baptist College, which at one time was operated by the Indianapolis Baptist Temple, has just been released from a federal prison after serving a three-year sentence for a so called crime similar to Dr. Kent Hovind. He is still on three years supervised release. The following email of September 11, 2007, tells in his own words of pressure that he has received to spy on his own congregation for the government. You will notice that in the recruitment of getting the pastors to spy on their members, the authorities are apparently picking on the most vulnerable first.
Dear Brother Dixon,
As for myself, I’m doing what I can. The Church has stuck by me through all this. The IRS was upset all through trial because our Church is not a 501(c)(3) government controlled Church, we don’t have a bank account, and according to their words, “We have no information about them and we have no control over them.” (As if that was a bad thing.) So now my parole officer (a Jewish lady) views me as an anti-semite and a white supremacist, and is doing all she can to make things hard on me. She wanted the names and social security numbers of Church members and of anyone else who sends a gift to me. Rather than disclose such information, I’ve been returning all gifts. I’d rather be poor than report Christians to Babylon.
I still strongly oppose the modern Bibles translated from the corrupted Alexandrian texts. And (strangely enough), I even more strongly hold the view that the worldly governments are controlled by Satan (by God’s permission of course).
Your Brother in Christ,
(Name withheld for obvious reasons)
How we rejoice that Temple Baptist College can say that this brother is a graduate. Maybe its time that the preachers of America stop fighting and devouring one another and sticking their noses up at one another, and begin loving each other and praying for one another. They may soon find themselves in a jail cell with that brother that they think is more worldly or less advanced in doctrine than they.
If anyone would like to give a gift to this brother that is mentioned above, feel free to send it to him through the Trumpet and we will see to it that he receives the full amount sent. His wife left him and their two children, who were cared for by his parents during his incarceration. He is currently staying with church members. He may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. [James 4:8-11]
