“TRUTH IS ABHORRED BY THE MASSES.”

“TRUTH IS ABHORRED BY THE MASSES.”  That is a great quote worth saving, even if it originated with a 17th Century Jesuit priest, Baltasar Gracian (above pic).  I just heard it quoted by Pastor Robert Jeffress of the First Baptist Church of Dallas in a Prophecy Conference lecture shown on the “Christ In Prophecy” TV program.

(Pastor Robert Jeffress)

The conference theme was “Spiritual Apostacy,” and Jeffress’ great sermon theme was “The Dangers of Relativism.”

What is Relativism?  It’s the exact opposite of what God says, ie,

 Isaiah 5:20 >>

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 

That is the pertinent verse, but check out these other “woe” verses in Isaiah that also showed up… Wow on the Woes!  They cover every gamut of human sinfulness… (I added the “titles” in bold)… 


 Isaiah 3:9 >> (SODOMY, IDOLATRY)
The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves. 


 Isaiah 3:11 >> (WILL REAP WHAT YOU SOW)
Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him. 


 Isaiah 5:11 >> (DRUNKENNESS)
Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! 


 Isaiah 5:18 >> (PRIDE)
Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:


 Isaiah 5:21 >> (THE MODERN DAY “INTELLECTUALS”)
Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 


 Isaiah 5:22 >> (MORE BOOZE)
Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 


 Isaiah 10:1 >> (LAWS THAT PROMOTE WICKEDNESS)
Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed;


 Isaiah 29:15 >> (SECRET SOCIETIES)
Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? 


 Isaiah 30:1 >> (REBELLION)
Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:


 Isaiah 33:1 >> (CENTRAL BANKERS)
Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! when thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; and when thou shalt make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee. 


 Isaiah 45:9 >> (THERE IS NO ONE WHO FEARS GOD ANYMORE)
Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?

(DVD pic is from another “Christ In Prophecy” program where Pastor Jeffress was interviewed on the same subject:

In Jeffress’ Relativism talk shown on TV, he relayed the story of the huge ruckus that occurred several years ago when he did two sermons two weeks in a row at his church re homosexuality.  This below pic from google images was posted by a Dallas blogger who was not happy about those sermons (and the mostly mean, hateful, derogatory comments under the article are the usual that you always find from the disgruntled crowd):

Jeffress said the sermon was originally entitled, “Why Homosexuality is a Perversion.”  But when he first saw it on his big sign, he thought maybe he better come up with something a little less in-your-face, so he changed it to “Why Gay is Not OK,” lol.  As he said — and as described above — it did not go over well either way.  They had to have cops there due to the commotion.  But he said the most shocking criticism came from other Christians, one man even writing to the local paper to complain.

Obviously that man must have already been duped by the globalist “tolerance” hoax, which is nothing but a ruse to squash free speech and oppress truth.

~~~~~~~~~~

This post was not meant to be about homosexuality; it was the truth quote that got the pen going.  However, hearing about Jeffress’ incident reminded me of a letter from a homosexual I read the other day at Henry Makow’s site.  It was the saddest thing!  The direct link is here:

Seems Baltasar Gracian was somewhat of a rebel in the eyes of the leaders of his day… A humorous (to me) quote from wiki about him:

“He acquired fame as a preacher, although some of his oratorical displays, such as READING A LETTER SENT FROM HELL from the pulpit, were frowned upon by his superiors.”

(lol… I know Hell is not a funny subject, but that bit of history about Gracian made me laugh.  And the above pic is a real gem!  I wonder if what Gracian read was this poem entitled, “WELCOME TO HELL” (which is also where I first saw that Hell photo):

More rebellion by Gracian, from wiki:

In 1651, he published the first part of the Criticón(Faultfinder) WITHOUT the PERMISSION  of his superiors, whom he DISOBEYED REPEATEDLY. This attracted the Society’s displeasure. IGNORING the reprimands, he published the third part of Criticónin 1657, and as a result was sanctioned and EXILED to Graus. He tried to leave the order but was unsuccessful. He died in 1658 and is buried inTarazona near Zaragoza in the province of Aragon.”
~~~~~~~~~~

If all the REAL “haters” (read: those who continue to **willfully** reject God’s loving grace for forgiveness of their sins through Christ) have their way, we all may end up in exile as well.

So is “Truth Abhorred by the Masses”?

(Even if it is not abhorred, it definitely is IGNORED via apathy and indifference among many.)

2 Thessalonians 2:10 >>
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.


 2 Thessalonians 2:12 >>
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 



vs.

1 Thessalonians 2:13 >>
For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
