On December 21, 2005, a local Cincinnati Islamic mosque was bombed. Apparently, a couple of pipe bombs exploded damaging a door and some windows. No one was hurt or even in the building. At this writing no one knows who did it and no one has claimed responsibility.
But it wasn’t the relatively small bombing itself that was the focus of the news coverage, it was the massive, lightening quick shock and awe convergence of “more than two dozen religious and community leaders” who gathered to loudly, and in unison, condemn the bombing. At the news conference, these “leaders” were falling all over themselves to get in their two cents about how “hateful” this act was.
Here is a list of some of the words used by these various, multi-religious “leaders” that deliberately intensified the situation. They called the bombing a “hate crime,” an “act of terrorism,” “hateful,” “evil,” a “deplorable act.” One editorial in the Cincinnati Enquirer (“Bombing an attack on all of us”, 12/22/05) called the bombers “aliens” and the bombing a “slithery attack” of “poisonous hate” . . . “bigotry” . . . “religious hate.” You would have thought the entire mosque was leveled to the ground!
Besides the various Protestant and Catholic “leaders” and civil government “leaders” (from the governor and a senator from Ohio to the mayor of Cincinnati) and the Muslim “leaders’, was Rabbi Abi Ingber leading the charge against intolerance. There they were, the local force of diversity and tolerance preaching against intolerance.
Of course, our small intolerant church would not condone such acts either where property is deliberately damaged or people harmed except in the matter of self-defense. We say, let’s treat this incident as a violation of law like any other at common law. Anything more than that is tainted with political purposes. This incident, and the religious and civil government reaction, was just that – political. Specifically, it was an opportunity (maybe an intentionally created one?) to exploit political Dharma.
What is “Dharma”?
We owe a great debt to Richard Hoskins who has helped us discern our times and incidents like this bombing, by explaining the reality of Dharma. In his book, In The Beginning, Mr. Hoskins explains the basic teachings of Dharma that you will most certainly recognize today. I copy from his book verbatim (p. 50).
NONVIOLENCE: Ahemsa – one must be non-violent to all other races and religions in both words and deed. Violence in word or deed is criminal.
OBEDIENCE: One must be obedient to the statutes, provide the needs of one’s family, neighbors, workers, and be especially obedient to the ruler, which makes all else possible. It is a crime to be disobedient and take the law into your own hands.
TOLERANCE: One is required to be tolerant. Dharma directs that one may not discriminate because of race, religion, or national origin.
Dharma is the “tolerance and diversity” political and religious theme of the day. It’s political, religious and economic. It’s the central pillar of the Hindu/Buddhist/Masonic/
Catholic/Jesuit/Protestant/Jewish new world order. A senator from Ohio, George Voinovich, said of this mosque bombing, “We all should be outraged about what has occurred. We live in a nation where we respect religious freedom, the religions of others, and our places of worship.” (Emphasis added). That’s Dharma illustrated.
Dharma – The New Religion
As Mr. Hoskins points out, Dharma allows you to worship any god you choose just so long as you tolerate all other gods and all religions. “Dharma –acceptance, non-violence and tolerance of different peoples and theirs gods and obedience to one’s rulers” (p. 52). And the purpose of Dharma? To facilitate “the religion of the international merchant” (p. 53). There cannot be a political, economic and religious new world order without intense, persistent Dharma propaganda and enforcement. That was what this bombing incident was all about – on a small yet significant scale. I mean, do you really think that this rabbi was really concerned about Muslims or their mosques? No, this incident was about advancing Dharma doctrine.
Here’s the point. When an exclusive religious opinion surfaces that defies the tolerance and diversity religion, it’s swiftly condemned and punished. That’s what these “leaders” were trying to make this bombing incident out to be – a violation of the religion of Dharma. This reaction was not for the pity of the Muslim worshippers, but for public consumption to teach Dharma. It was a warning shot to let everyone know that Dharma violators will not be tolerated. The Dharma religion has teeth of fear.
Is Dharma Biblical?
No matter how loud and threatening the followers of Dharma are, we must always seek what the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob hath said in His written word. Repeatedly He has said to His covenant people, we are to fear Him and Him alone. And that holy fear compels us to obey the Word. And in regard to Dharma it says, “You shall have no other gods before Me” (Exodus 20:3).
In Dharma, the modern day Protestant has his god, the Catholic has his god, and the Jew has his god, the Muslim his god and the Hindu his gods and so forth. The Christian is compelled to worship an exclusive jealous God Who has commanded His covenant Christian people to obey His Law/Word. And that Law/Word excludes the worship, service or even mention of other gods.
Dharma, on the other hand, is a religious system that is inclusive of all other religions, gods and all races. It’s absolutely opposed to the exclusive God of our fathers, His Law, and His covenant people. Dharma doesn’t tolerate racial, covenant Christianity. Biblical, covenant Christianity and Dharma are mutually exclusive toward each other.
Israelite History of Dharma
Our people today, the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, are en masse following the religion of Dharma. Many are serving another god or gods, and most are simply tolerating other gods and the religions and ethnicities they represent. They mistakenly call it “the freedom of religion.” They have been Dharmatized.
But there is nothing new under the sun. Our people have always been susceptible to serving other gods. Just read through the stories of the kings of Israel and Judah. God’s punishment and eventual deportations were the result of such sinful and rebellious behavior – they chose to worship and serve other gods by fearing them (fear of the Jews), walking in the pagan customs of the nations (Christmas and Easter) and building high places (false churches). They practiced Dharma then as they do today. God put them under a curse then, and we are under His curse today, for the same basic reason.
Dharma is a Test
Dharma presents an opportunity from God to obey or rebel – to serve the exclusive God and obey His Law, or serve this God and tolerate other gods. The words of Joshua echo this challenge to His people today:
“If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord,
choose for yourselves today whom you will serve:
whether the gods which your fathers served
which were beyond the River,
or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living;
but as for me and my house,
we will serve the Lord.”
– Joshua 24:15
Dharma is death to the chosen people of God. But I have hope that God has not totally abandon His people (although we deserve it) and that one day this deception called Dharma will be unveiled before their eyes and then they must make a choice. Will it be “disagreeable” for them to serve their God exclusively because it will cause too much trouble to oppose the politically correct and religiously acceptable doctrine of the new world order? Or will they cry out to the Lord God of their fathers for deliverance from this terrible madness and will they rise up one day to openly confess that this God is the God of the land and His Law is supreme? Let’s ask our God to have mercy on His people that one day they will be filled with God’s Holy Spirit as a mighty army to pronounce death to Dharma. His Kingdom come!</TD></TR></T></T></TABLE><BR clear=all>
