I received the following in an email from a friend. It is worth reading for it is pertinent for most (if not all) of the Western world today.
What really died at Auschwitz? Here’s an interesting viewpoint. The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez and published in a Spanish newspaper. It doesn’t take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe, and possibly to the rest of the world.
I walked down the streets in Barcelona and suddenly discovered a terrible truth: Europe died in Auschwitz. We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a group of people who represented culture, thought, creativity, talent.
We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who made great contributions to the world, and thus changed the world.
The contribution of today’s Jewish people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. Look at any donors’ board at any symphony, art museum, theatre, art gallery, science center, etc. You will see many, many, Jewish surnames.
These are the people who were burned. Of the 6,000,000 who died, how many would have grown up to be gifted musicians, doctors, artists, philanthropists?
And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the diseases of racism and bigotry, Europe opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.
They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime. Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.
And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition. We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs. What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.
Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it “offends” the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.
It is now approximately seventy years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This email is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, twenty million Russians, ten million Christians, and nineteen-hundred Catholic priests who were murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated. Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming The Holocaust to be “a myth,” it is imperative to make sure the world “never forgets.”
This email is intended to reach 400 million people. Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.
How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center “NEVER HAPPENED” because it offends some Muslim in the United States? If our Judeo-Christian heritage is offensive to Muslims, they should pack up and move to Iran, Iraq or some other Muslim country.
Please do not just delete this message; it will take only a minute to pass this along. We must wake up America, England, Australia and Europe before it’s too late.

My article yesterday, Aboriginal Smoking Ceremony and Doctrines of Devils, mentioned the Prime Minister of Australia and his (1) professing to be a Christian and (2) his acceptance of the Aboriginal Smoking Ceremony saying publicly that it would ward away the evil spirits. I quoted Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
After I wrote the article I got on the page where one may send a message to the PM. This is what I sent.
Exodus 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God…34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God
God is jealous for His own Name and for the worship of His people.
Leviticus 18:21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech…
God had a prohibition for his people and their children in how and to whom they were to worship. He alone was to be worshiped and this worship did not include passing one’s child through ‘the fire’ in worship to ‘Molech’. In other words, God was very interested in how His people worshipped and to whom His people Israel worshipped.
In the New Testament, the Lord Jesus said in John 14:1-6 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
The Lord Jesus Christ according to His own words said He was the ONLY way to God the Father and heaven. Without Him, a person cannot enter heaven but will spend eternity in the lake of fire, Revelation 20: 14,15.
John the immerser said in John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. That’s pretty clear speaking.
Peter proclaimed in Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Now, true born-again Bible-believing Christians believe all those verses just quoted and in fact they believe all the verses between Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21! Too mix idolatry with Biblical Christianity is anathema and yet that is exactly what occurs at least for one week each year in Australia, known as NAIDOC week. NAIDOC stands for the National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee.
It is during this week that the false beliefs of the Australian Aboriginals are promoted by all forms of Governments from the Federal to local councils. In their recognition of the Aboriginal people, the government holds events where the Aboriginal flag is raised and a smoking ceremony is observed.
The PM in his 2019 address to the Country said ‘Here, 65,000 thousand years (The PM shows he is definitely not a young earth creationist) of Aboriginal culture meets mere centuries of Westminster tradition, which the Leader of the Opposition and I represent, being here together and I acknowledge Anthony as I do all of my Parliamentary colleagues, the Deputy Prime Minister who joins us here today.
We gather in respect – acknowledging the Ngunnawal elders, the ancient ceremony of fire and smoke that will commence shortly has become part of the tradition of this building, and thankfully so.
It was just over a decade ago that the first ever smoking ceremony accompanied the opening of Parliament, and I thank the Speaker and the President of the Senate for their continuing support of this as it shall always be in this place (emphasis added).’
What is a smoking ceremony and should a professing Christian participate in the ceremony?
‘A smoking ceremony is an ancient custom among some Aboriginal Australians that involves smouldering various native plants to produce smoke which they believe has cleansing properties and the ability to ward off bad spirits.’
Another source adds that a smoking ceremony ‘…has been believed to have cleansing properties and the ability to ward off unwanted and bad spirits, which was believed to bring bad omens.’
The smoking ceremony is plainly a pagan practice that professing Christians should not participate in. Nevertheless, one probably shouldn’t be amazed to read that ‘The Aboriginal Catholic Ministry incorporates the Smoking Ceremony in its liturgical expression.’
Then there is the Aboriginal lady who said she ‘…combines Aboriginal spirituality and Christianity when the need arises.’ Sadly, this lady will go to hell as her spiritual foundation is certainly not the Lord Jesus Christ and Him alone!
Then there are the religious schools such as the Roman Catholic’s St. Augustine’s in Narromine, NSW which will celebrate NAIDOC with a mixture of Romish ‘…liturgy and smoking ceremony’. I guess this is trying to have the best of both worlds.
At the local level we find many city councils throughout Australia promoting Aboriginal spirituality even though in the end it will send people straight to hell as they bypass personal saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. For instance, ‘The City of Greater Bendigo will kick off 2019 NAIDOC Week celebrations with a civic reception and flag-raising ceremony…and Smoking Ceremony…’
Last year (2018) ‘The Sydney Anglican Diocese has backed down on a controversial policy banning smoking ceremonies on any property owned by the church following outrage from Indigenous leaders, school principals and priests who work closely with First Nations communities.’ Controversial perhaps but it would have been Biblical for as Paul said in Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.!
Christian believers should understand that a pagan Smoking Ceremony will not fend off the Devil and his demons but is rather a celebration and invitation to more demonic activity! That is why white and Aboriginal Australians should be celebrating the arrival of the First Fleet! There the Lord God had His man Reverend Richard Johnson preach his first sermon on this great island known as Australia on Sunday 3rd February 1788, from Psalm 116 and verse 12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?
From that beginning the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ was preached around Australia to both Europeans and Aboriginals. When however, there is always the need for more Gospel preachers and some years later Charles Spurgeon asked ‘Who will go? The men who ought to go are young brethren of good abilities who have not yet taken upon themselves family cares.
Each student entering the college should consider this matter, and surrender himself to the work unless there are conclusive reasons for his not doing so. It is a fact that even for the colonies it is ‘very difficult to find men, for I have had openings in Australia which I have been obliged to decline. It ought not to be so.’
Australia as with all nations needs not just Christians but Gospel believing separated living sin-hating Scripture loving Christians. Definitely, Australia and the world doesn’t need more compromising weak-kneed Christians!
Now, to answer the question asked earlier, ‘should a professing Christian participate in the ceremony’ the answer is a resounding NO! Again, quoting Paul when he said in the inspired Word of God to the Ephesian church ‘have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness’! Pretty plain language if words mean anything at all.
Today, the compromise of the true Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with the pagan aboriginal Smoking Ceremony by compromising professing Christian politicians and ecumenical conceding denominations has led many aboriginals and non-aboriginals straight to hell. It MUST be understood there can be ABSOLUTELY no compromise between the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the ‘doctrines of devils.’

Is the animosity toward Christianity getting worse or has it always been there and is just showing its ugly head more openly? Rugby player Israel Folau is a Christian and in his social media posted a portion from the Bible where it says liars, adulterers, murderers, and homosexuals were going to hell if they did not repent and trust the Lord Jesus as their personal Saviour. Well, that cost him his position as a player and his multi-million dollar contract. However, being the Christian he is, he did not back down but is fighting Rugby Australia through the legal system.
Partial transcripts of a code of conduct hearing held before the star fullback was fired reveal Ms Castle said that the 30-year-old — who was the face of the game in Australia — would have been in trouble for copying problematic sections.” https://thewest.com.au/sport/rugby-union/israel-folau-hits-back-at-rugby-australia-ceos-bible-ban-stance-ng-5b91cb00860c0d07b0950ba83f09ee92
However, I ask, does the Australian Football League have a problem with one of their women’s’ team praying to Allah?
Here we have Amna Karra-Hassan in the center leading the AFL Auburn Giants team in a prayer before a match in Wollondilly, Australia.
What do you think would be the reaction if a Christian led a prayer to God the Father through the Name of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, before an AFL or Rugby match?
“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.”
‘Imagine being in a party that’s all packed into one room and everyone is talking. Under these conditions it’s often difficult to hear, or at least, understand what others around you are saying. Now imagine that all of these people look nearly identical. None has any noticeable distinguishing features that make him different from anyone else in the room. Now, to make matters worse, you have been informed that you are to find the person in the room who was not invited to the party.
That’s the impossible situation that honeybees constantly face. However, the noisy room I have just described is noisy in two ways. Bees not only communicate through sound. They also use scents to communicate. And the hive is full of scents. Yet honeybees are constantly alert to bees who are not members of the hive. Invaders are killed. How can bees so successfully protect the hive?
Entomologists have discovered that members of a hive all carry the same chemical password. The scent must be very distinctive because the hive is filled with smells. It also seems that all honeybees may use a specific combination and subtle variations of only two chemicals. Yet each hive can instantly tell whether another bee carries the specific chemical password.
The complexity of this avenue of beehive defense shows not only a wise and powerful Creator. It also shows us that He cares for what He has created. He cares for You, too. Learn more about the specific details of His love for You in the Bible.’ https://creationmoments.com/sermons/bee-cologne-3/?mc_cid=c5bbe940ba&mc_eid=00c1dcff3c
I was born and reared in the good ole USA (Iowa in fact) but have lived over half my life outside the USA. In spite of that tears still, come to my eyes when I hear that grand old song America. I trust you enjoy this as much as I did when I heard it sung by the Hillsdale College Choir.
It should come as no surprise that “In the early 1900s, various ‘morality tales’ sought to advance the idea of eugenics. Squarely based on evolutionary belief in ‘survival of the fittest’, the eugenics movement was founded by Francis Galton, cousin to Charles Darwin.
This taught that, just as a farmer controls the breeding of his livestock to enhance the quality of his herd, promoting the childbearing of ‘ideal’ people and preventing ‘undesirable’ people from having children could improve the human race. One of the most popular pro-eugenics accounts was the story of ‘Deborah Kallikak’ (a pseudonym).
The story of the ‘Kallikak’ family supposedly went back to an ancestor code-named ‘Martin Kallikak’, who as a young man had a relationship with a “feebleminded barmaid” that resulted in the birth of Martin Jr. Later, Martin married a “worthy Puritan woman”, and their union produced many productive people. But alas, the damage had been done, because Martin Jr, a drunkard and worthless individual, had many children, and those children were all morally and intellectually bankrupt. Supposedly Deborah was a direct descendant of Martin Jr, and she was tested to be ‘feebleminded’, and was locked away in an asylum, supposedly to keep her from immorality.
‘Deborah Kallikak’ was a pseudonym for the real woman Emma Wolverton. The problem is, the story was wrong from beginning to end. The genealogy was wrong for a start.
‘Martin’ and ‘Martin, Jr.’ were second cousins, not father and son, and were both the offspring of respectable married couples.3 And the testing used on Emma was invalid, as they didn’t take into account her complete lack of previous schooling when she first came to the asylum. Later evaluations also tended to downplay the significant gains that she made in learning practical skills. In fact, visitors to the asylum frequently expressed astonishment that such a ‘feebleminded’ woman could present herself so well. But unfortunately, no one ever doubted the story that Emma was feebleminded.
Emma entered Vineland Training School in Vineland, New Jersey at eight years old, and as a young woman was transferred to the women’s institution across the street. She was never offered the chance to have a life of her own—she was not offered freedom until she was far too old and ill to accept it. She died in 1978 at 89 years of age, having been a victim of a cruel branch of pseudoscience.4
Some might wonder why Emma Wolverton is important today. It is a sad story, but she died almost 40 years ago. Today, eugenics has a bad name because the Nazis used the ideology to support exterminating Jews and other ‘lesser’ races—after using it to justify murdering large numbers of mentally and physically handicapped people in the name of preventing them passing on their supposedly ‘inferior genes’.
But when Emma first entered the Vineland Training School, it was the scientific
consensus in the western world, accepted by all preeminent researchers in the field, and approved by the US Supreme Court (Buck v. Bell, 1927). It seemed self-evident, enough to justify the lifetime incarceration of some ‘feeble-minded’ people, and the permanent sterilization of tens of thousands more.5 We look back in horror on the atrocities committed against people whose only ‘crime’ was being poor, uneducated, or otherwise disadvantaged, who were abused to advance a theory that built the careers of some of the most famous scientists of the day.
But it’s easy to forget that scientists still make pronouncements that affect the life and death of people today. Some ‘ethicists’ say that it is more merciful to kill a child in the womb when he or she may be born disabled, and that it is better to help a troubled or ill person to commit suicide rather than to ‘force’ him or her to live a life that they arbitrarily decide is ‘not worth living’. Someone as famous as Richard Dawkins proclaimed that the ‘moral’ thing was to abort a Down Syndrome baby and ‘try again’, and Peter Singer (Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University) infamously remarked that some animals have more moral value than some newborn babies.
The only worldview that upholds the value of all human life, regardless of intelligence and ability, is the Christian worldview, because Scripture teaches that all human beings are created in the image of God and are thus inherently valuable, despite that image being marred by sin.” https://creation.com/wolverton-kallikak?utm_campaign=infobytes_au&utm_content=Life+imprisonment+for+%27feeble-mindedness%27%3F&utm_medium=email&utm_source=mailing.creation.com&utm_term=Fortnightly+Digest+-+2019.06.28
