Ironsides was a heretic who is responsible at least in part for the Religious Right's pro Israel outlook. The Rapture Ready "we need a Holocaust in the Middle East so Jesus can return" mindset that influences a great deal of US foreign policy.

To elevate a czar to the likeness of God, and to diminish sin to the level of monetary debt, as in this story, further illustrates the evil this man has left a great deal of the church to sort through.

@ Dave -

US Foreign Policy is advocating a holocaust in the Middle East? I must've missed that. No one is elevating a czar to the likeness of God. It's simply an illustration of the greater Story.

Now, how about addressing the point of the illustration itself?

Re: Mo

This mindset in virtually all of the Rapture Ready "Evangelical Churches" today make wars for oil and meddling in the Middle East on behalf of Israel, a "shoe in". In contrast, the Vietnam War protesters influenced an end to that other senseless war. People influence US Foreign Policy.

Where's the vicarious sacrifice, the hideousness of sin, the substitutionary death of the innocent in the czar story????

Greg doesn't hold to the Rapture and has said so on many occasions. I would venture a guess that most of the STR staff doesn't either. So, you had better direct this charge somewhere else. Not that it is likely to be any more legitimate.
