“Why Do Christians Try To Impose Their Values On Others?”
OK, this article sub-title is from an individual who goes by the handle: “Got Questions,” on a web site that goes by this name: “Faith By The Word Ministries”, with a so-called pastor by the name of Dave Winstead. I am therefore using this article as an example for Mainstream Christianity as a whole, for his beliefs are pretty much bog standard for the bulk of the wretched Protestant arm of The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion. The other two factions (the satanic cults) namely Eastern Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism are even more wretched and deluded.
Now don’t get me wrong, for I have nothing against this man personally, but I do have everything against him in his capacity as an alleged minister of God. I have therefore copied and pasted this article word for word, not knowing if this bod ‘Got Questions’ is one and the same as Dave Winstead or not. However, that’s not the issue. What is the issue, is the utter nonsense and worldly drivel within the article:
Before I start, one point to clear up immediately is this, real Christians HAVE NO VALUES, whatever they are. If you want to know what ‘values’ are, you better ask the vile shabbos goy, Communist traitor, ex-British Prime Minister Theresa May, as she was always banging on about Christian ‘values’ and British ‘values’ = total meaningless political effluence of the most foul kind.
Right, with that not so little niggle out of the way, we will begin, and I hope you are sitting comfortably:
By ‘Got Questions’.
“Christians are frequently accused of trying to impose their values or their beliefs on others. The oft-heard accusation is that Christians are trying to “shove their religion down our throats.” In addressing this question, we must also address the implied accusation that Christians are an authoritarian group that seeks to impinge on the rights of others….
Here he opens the topic with a defensive statement that actively displays his ignorant delusion, for it is a blatant example of his attempt to defend the indefensible. This is because these so-called ‘Christians’ do impose their values and their beliefs on others, (probably without even knowing it) and they do it because of one main specific reason, which I will come to as we dissect his useless diatribe. Notice, too, how he sees his fellow band of fakes as non-authoritarian. Now tell me, what use are non-authoritarian Christians? Did Yashua Messiah not speak with authority? Did The Messengers not speak with authority?
Further to, in a pathetic attempt to bolster his non-argument he uses the lame duck excuse that there have always been tyrants that professed to be Christians, but were not Christians at all. Never mind that these imposters professed to believe in much the same nonsense as himself, for example, their ritualistic religion, their ‘acceptable’ fake Jesus and their phony Trinity, amongst other things.
“….Of course, there have been tyrants who were professed Christians, but true followers of Jesus Christ do not seek to infringe on anyone’s basic human rights. The same God who granted volition to the believer also granted volition to the unbeliever.
He then goes on with further excuses by stating that TRUE followers of Jesus Christ do not seek to infringe on anyone’s basic ‘uman rights! WHAT!? Was Yashua Messiah or John the Baptist the least bit worried about the ‘uman rights of their audiences? especially the Pharisee Jews! note these vehement outpourings: “Hypocrites!!” “Ye Serpents” “Generation (race) of vipers” “With throats like open graves” “Whited walls” “Whited sepulchres” “Sons of the Devil.” All very non-offensive! NOT!
However, all this is by the by, for what he says next is a clincher: “The same God who granted volition to the believer also granted volition to the unbeliever.”
Oh really, is that so!? What we see here is a combination of his worldliness by his mentioning worthless and irrelevant ‘uman rights, followed by the clanger of his assertion that unbelievers have free will. In turn, this means he has never read this crucial passage of Holy Scripture, or if he has, it did not sink into his Spiritually dead brain:
The PARABLE of THE PARABLES!
Matthew 13:10-16 (MCV) And The Learners (disciples) came, and said unto Him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of The Kingdom of God, BUT TO THEM IT IS NOT GIVEN. 12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. 13 THEREFORE I SPEAK TO THEM IN PARABLES: because they seeing, see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross (has grown fat and lazy), and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, AND SHOULD BE CONVERTED, AND I SHOULD HEAL THEM. 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
Above we can see graphically explained to us by Yashua Messiah HIMSELF how He DELIBERATELY withholds The Truth from THE MAJORITY of people, with ONLY THE FEW being blessed with the knowledge and understanding of His Word. More from our blind guide:
“God extends His general blessings to everyone (Matthew 5:45); therefore, freedom for all is a Christian value. Man is a special creation of God (Genesis 1:27); therefore, human dignity and respect for the individual are Christian values.
Here he misinterprets Matthew 5:45 by quoting it out of context and relating it to ‘freedom for all’, when in Truth the lost and unsaved are slaves to sin and not free at all. The lost and unsaved do Satan’s will, whether it be ‘good’ things or evil things – that is the fallen condition from Adam and Eve until today.
“Some say that it is wrong to try to “legislate morality.” We say that it is impossible not to. Every law “imposes” someone’s moral “values” on someone else. A law that prohibits murder, for example, imposes a belief that murder is wrong and upholds the Christian tenet that human life has intrinsic worth.
“Almost everyone agrees that murder, adultery, stealing, lying, and greed are wrong. Most people agree that respecting one’s parents is right. This sense of right and wrong, woven into the fabric of our society, reflects six of the Bible’s Ten Commandments. Those who object to the “imposition” of Judeo-Christian values should perhaps work to repeal the laws against murder, perjury, and theft.
Here he waters down God’s Law by referring to ‘moral values’. God has no moral values. In Habeas-Corpus jurisdictions (Britain, Her Commonwealth and The USA) we all should know that The Common Law, so-called, is based upon The Ten Commandments, and is our unalienable right to be governed by same. We are not supposed to be governed by thousands of racketeering Acts and Statutes (Corporate rules and regulations) and, in turn, used to fleece the people and keep them oppressed, enslaved and poor. No doubt he’s completely oblivious to this institutionalised criminal government scam.
“Christians don’t want to impose their values, but they do recognize that, in every society, someone’s values must reign supreme. The question is whose values will predominate? There is no such thing as a neutral value system. Therefore, Christians work to advance their values in the sincere belief that, in a world of competing convictions, Christian values best promote the general welfare and preserve the domestic tranquillity.
Now this paragraph is very deceptive and it’s also grossly disingenuous for it’s very questionable that so-called Christians have any input on how our Commie Godless nations are run. However, here I will return to my earlier remark about them imposing ‘their values’ and by ‘their values’ we should ALL know what he means. If not I will sum it up as briefly as I can:
Mainstream Christian ‘values’ means telling the lost and unsaved or preaching to the lost and unsaved and telling them, that unless they turn to ‘their Jesus’ and invite him into their lives (accept him as their saviour) they will be thrown into hell when they die. What they classify as ‘hell’, I have no idea. LOL. Most likely, nor do they, but hey ho! The joys of being an airy-fairy non-Christian eh?
Moreover, THIS is what all the accusations are about, and quite right too, for it is an evil and erroneous message that they are attempting to ram down people’s throats. For they DO attempt to do this, and all his excuses are just that EXCUSES and LIES. I have witnessed it a 1,001 times on discussion platforms when the exchange starts off all luvvy-duvvy with the ‘Christian’ being as sentimental and syrupy as they can be, only to be rejected by the lost individual who tells them to clear off (I’m being polite here). Then come the ‘hell threats’ like there’s no tomorrow, and another unsaved wretch more adamant and entrenched than ever before in his unbelief and/or atheism.
“Christians don’t want to impose their values, but they do see the importance of having an authority higher than ourselves. Societies which attempt to produce a moral code based solely on human rationale can be manipulated by whoever has the most votes or the most weapons. Whether it’s the case of a humanistic despot such as Joseph Stalin or a collective tyranny such as the French Revolution, the exclusion of Christian principles leads to less freedom, not more.
Here he lies once more, for they do try to impose their views and they do this because of evil misplaced zeal, a zeal fed by the satanic doctrines and teachings of their religious cult(s) namely, that THIS LIFETIME, OR THIS AGE, IS THE ONLY OPPORTUNITY THAT THE LOST AND UNSAVED HAVE FOR SALVATION! Upon this false satanic premise or concept they build their even more satanic churches. (See link No. 1 below)
“Christians don’t want to impose their values, but they do want to live peaceably in whatever society they dwell (Romans 12:18; 1 Timothy 2:2). Christians are obligated to do good to all (1 Corinthians 6:10) and to pray for everyone (1 Timothy 2:1). Christ taught His followers to return blessing for cursing (Matthew 5:44), a teaching which He modeled perfectly (1 Peter 2:23).
There are some who wish for a purely “secular” society where religion is relegated to its cloister and all Christian opinion is silenced. To those individuals, we offer these reminders.
Again he lies, for with their false non-Gospel message, they can do nothing else but attempt to impose their beliefs on the lost and unsaved, and they would be totally failing in their mission if they did not hammer home their hell, fear based beliefs. The fact that they are mentally pressured non-stop by their: ‘salvation in this life time is the only chance you’ve got’ satanic doctrine, means they can do nothing else but try to impose their beliefs on the lost and unsaved.
I will also clarify at this point that these ‘Christians’ will attack me on this topic, because they think I am proposing a second chance for those not called in this age, when I am doing no such thing. What I am proposing is their FIRST CHANCE for salvation and for reasons made very plain by my eldest Brother Yashua Messiah in Matthew 13:10-16.
Moving on where he compounds his satanic worldly errors:
1) Christians have as much right to be involved in the political process as anyone else. This means they may vote, rally, lobby, caucus, and hold office just like any other citizen—all the while promoting laws that reflect their own values. Christians do not seek to subvert the political process; they engage it, as it is the right of every citizen.
He has even forgotten Yashua Messiah’s fundamental teaching (if he was ever instructed on it at all) on our place in The World – The System or, rather, our non-place in The World – The System:
John 17:14-18 (MCV) I have given them Thy Word; and The World (The System) hath hated them, because they are not of The World (The System), even as I am not of The World (The System). 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of The World (The System), but that thou shouldest keep them from The Evil One. 16 They are not of The World (The System), even as I am not of The World (The System). 17 Sanctify them through Thy Truth: Thy Word is Truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into The World (The System), even so have I also sent them into The World (The System).
Christians are not of The World (The System) and The World (The System) hates us, so what use would we be as politicians, if we’re already hated before we even open our mouths? This fella hasn’t a clue about The Way that we follow, for Yashua Messiah is The Way and this numb-skull is advocating the worldly ways of The Devil = POLITICS.
“2) Christians in a pluralistic society have as much right to voice their opinions as anyone else. This means they may broadcast, write, speak, publish, and create art as they will—all the while voicing their own view of morality. Christians are sometimes accused of censorship, on the basis that they have criticized a certain book or have objected to their tax dollars funding anti-Christian speech, but they are not burning books. The reality is that freedom of expression is a Christian value.
Here he talks a load of tosh and nonsense, for his so-called ‘pluralistic society’ is anathema to God. A ‘pluralistic society’ is straight out of The Abyss = Satan’s World, and Christians have no rights in it at all. They are hated and loathed by such a society, and if they speak out against this society they will immediately be attacked and persecuted by it. In effect Christians have no rights at all in this world, nor should they expect any, for their Kingdom is not of this world in any way, shape or form.
“3) Christians in a religiously free society have as much right to live out their beliefs as anyone else. This means they may preach and teach the gospel and live according to the Bible and their conscience. When a Christian says, “You must be born again” (John 3:7), he is not trying to impose his values; he is speaking the truth, which anyone is free to accept or reject.
Again, more errors from our world loving fake preacher and banging on about rights that we do not have, and I won’t repeat what I have already said above, other than to add that if you say to an unbeliever: “You MUST be born again,” all you are doing is casting your pearls before swine – see Matthew 13:10-16 above, once more.
“There is no doubt that when Christians share the joy that comes from faith in Christ, some see that as an attempt to impose Christianity on others. But the truth is that as Christians, we know that we have the antidote for human misery in this life and an eternity in hell in the next.
Here we go again. How can these ‘Christians’ share something with those that cannot comprehend what they are experiencing, namely their supposed joy? Do they not know how the carnal mind works?
Romans 8:7 (KJV) Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to The Law of God, neither indeed can be.
This means they cannot be anything else but threatened by what they see as unhinged behaviour, and he tries to play it down by saying: “some see that as an attempt to impose Christianity on others.” when he knows full well that’s just how they will interpret it.
We then get confirmation of what I said earlier, that is, his threats of hell, and then he wonders why he and his fellow fake Christian dupes are repelled by the lost and unsaved and accused by them. He also makes the erroneous assumption that we’re here to end misery in this life – utter baloney. Misery will only be ended when Yashua Messiah returns to this earth in great power and glory – AND THEN we’ll see an end to ALL misery, suffering, oppression and poverty.
To not share that cure with others, as we are commanded by Christ to do (Matthew 28:18-20), would be like knowing the cure for cancer and refusing to share it with the rest of the world. We can’t force our beliefs on anyone; all we can do is offer them the cure and pray they will accept it. If some see that effort as “imposing” our beliefs on them, that is a matter of their perception, not a reflection of reality.
And then he finishes off with yet more bunkum: Cure, what cure? There will be no cure until Yashua Messiah comes to rescue the earth. This ‘cure’ drivel, again, is based upon their flawed satanic doctrines. They think that they’re here to usher in The Kingdom of God, and there’s no telling how many hundreds of years they have been attempting to do that, whilst in reality the world becomes more evil, violent, degenerate and debauched by the day – the complete opposite of what they claim they are doing – how’s that for strong delusion?
“We can’t force our beliefs on anyone.” And again that’s exactly what they try to do, driven on by their flawed, evil and judgemental doctrines, as I described above. One blind guide thoroughly exposed.
In Yashua Messiah’s Holy name

Roman Catholicism is NOT Christianity. Eastern (Russian) Orthodoxy is NOT Christianity. Protestantism is NOT Christianity.
