GREED and the GOSPEL – two threads in history – and American Indians

 American Minute by Bill Federer
 GREED and the GOSPEL are two threads that run through the past 2,000 years.Those motivated by GREED took land from Indians; held slaves; were East India Tea Company merchants who imported opium into China; or hung signs “Help Wanted-No Irish Need Apply”; or voted for candidates promising financial security even though they spread immorality and disregard for human life.


Those motivated by the GOSPEL donated money, food and clothes, opened orphanages andmedical clinics, dug wells in native villages, fought to abolish slavery, founded hospitals, took in homeless, dispensed emergency aid, inoculated children, taught farming techniques, visited those in prison, provided literacy programs and disaster relief.

Such were:

Scottish Missionary to Nigeria Mary Slessor who promoted women’s rights and ending twin killing;

Baptist Missionary Lottie Moon, who helped famine victims in China;


Scottish Missionary to the Congo David Livingstone who worked to end the Muslim slave trade;

Adoniram Judson, missionary to Burma, who created a Burmese-English Dictionary;

Missionary to India William Carey, who helped end the practice of ‘sati’ – the burning widows on their husband’s ashes;


George Muller, who founded orphanages in the slums of England;

Missionary to China Gladys Aylward, who helped end the binding of little girls’ feet;

Hudson Taylor, who was a missionary and physician in China;

Irish missionary Amy Carmichael, who worked with orphans in India;


Olympic athlete Eric Liddell, who was a missionary and teacher in North China;

Jake DeShazer, who was a prisoner-of-war turned missionary to Japan;

Nate Saint and Jim Elliot, who were missionary martyrs to Ecuador’s Auca Indians;


and Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who said:

“I see Jesus in every human being. I say to myself, this is hungry Jesus, I must feed him. This is sick Jesus. This one has leprosy or gangrene; I must wash him and tend to him. I serve because I love Jesus.”


These spread Judeo-Christian ideals like ‘women and children first,’ philanthropy, charity, volunteerism, civil rights, and tolerance.

Though conquistadors unfortunately lusted for gold, they were followed by sincere missionaries like Bartolome’ de Las Casas, who ministered to native peoples.

American Indians were caught in the struggle between GREED and the GOSPEL.


Many Indians sided with the French against the British during the French and Indian War. When the French lost, the Indians lost land.

Many Indians sided with the British during the Revolutionary War as Britain limited colonial westward expansion in 1763. When the British lost, Indians lost more land. (Treaty of Greenville, 1795)


Many Indians sided with the British during the War of 1812. When the British lost, Indians lost more land. (Treaty of Fort Jackson, 1814)

Gold was discovered in Georgia and settlers rushed in. A Democrat controlled Congress hurriedly passed the Indian Removal Act of 1830, signed by a Democrat President. Four thousand Cherokee died in their forced march to Oklahoma. (Treaty of Fort Armstrong, 1832; Treaty of Echota, 1835)

Some Indians sided with the Confederacy during the Civil War. When the South lost, Indians lost more land.


During America’s history, there were well-intentioned missionaries motivated by the GOSPEL: John Elliott, Pierre Marquette, David Brainerd, Francis Makemie, John Stewart, Marcus Whitman, and Hiram Bingham.

On April 26, 1802, President Jefferson extended a 1787 act of Congress in which special lands were designated:

“For the sole use of Christian Indians and the Moravian Brethren missionaries for civilizing the Indians and promoting Christianity.”


After the Louisiana Purchase, Jefferson asked Congress to ratify a treaty with the Kaskaskia Tribe, negotiated by William Henry Harrison-the future 9th President. The Kaskaskia Treaty, DECEMBER 3, 1803, stated:

“And whereas the greater part of the said tribe have been baptized and received into the Catholic Church, to which they are much attached,

the United States will give annually, for seven years, one hundred dollars toward the support of a priest of that religion, who will engage to perform for said tribe the duties of his office, and also to instruct as many of their children as possible, in the rudiments of literature,

and the United States will further give the sum of three hundred dollars, to assist the said tribe in the erection of a church.”


In 1806 and 1807, two similar treaties were made with the Wyandotte and Cherokee tribes.

President Jackson stated in a Message to Congress, January 20, 1830:

“According to the terms of an agreement between the United States and the United Society of Christian Indians the latter have a claim to an annuity of $400…”


President Jackson commented in his 2nd Annual Message, December 6, 1830:

“The Indians…gradually, under the protection of the Government and through the influence of good counsels, to cast off their savage habits and become an interesting, civilized, and Christian community.”


In the 1850’s, the territory of the Five Civilized Tribes in the eastern Oklahoma had missions, schools and academies:Presbyterians’ Dwight Mission (Cherokee, 1820, 1828);
Chuala Female Academy (Choctaw, 1842);
Tullahassee Manual Labor Boarding School (Cherokee, 1848);
Congregational-American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions’s Wheelock Academy (Choctaw, 1832);
Methodist Episcopal Church’s Quapaw Mission (1843); and
Bloomfield Academy for Chickasaw Females (1852).

President Lincoln stated in his 3rd Annual Message, December 3, 1863:

“It is hoped that the treaties will result in…permanent friendly relations with such of these tribes…

Duty to these wards of the Government demand our anxious and constant attention to their material well-being, to their progress in the arts of civilization, and, above all, to that moral training which under the blessing of Divine Providence will confer upon them the elevated and sanctifying influences, hopes and consolations, of the Christian faith.”

In 1869, the Board of Indian Commissioners noted in its annual report: “the religion of our blessed Savior is…the most effective agent for the civilization of any people.”

President Grant stated in his First Annual Message, December 6, 1869:

“I have attempted a new policy toward these wards of the nation…

The Society of Friends is well known as having succeeded in living in peace with the Indians in the early settlement of Pennsylvania…

They are known for their opposition to all strife, violence, and war, and are generally noted for their strict integrity and fair dealings.

These considerations induced me to give the management of a few reservations of Indians to them…The result has proven most satisfactory.”


President Grant stated in his 2nd Annual Message, December 5, 1870:

“Reform in…Indian affairs has received the special attention…

The experiment of making it a missionary work was tried with a few agencies given to the denomination of Friends (Quaker), and has been found to work most advantageously…

Indian agencies being civil offices, I determined to give all the agencies to such religious denominations as had heretofore established missionaries among the Indians, and perhaps to some other denominations…to Christianize and civilize the Indians, and to train him in the arts of peace.”


President Grant stated to Congress, January 1, 1871:

“Civilized Indians of the country should be encouraged in establishing for themselves forms of Territorial government compatible with the Constitution…

This is the first indication of the aborigines desiring to adopt our form of government, and it is highly desirable that they become self-sustaining, self-relying, Christianized, and civilized.”


President Grant stated in his 3rd Annual Message, December 4, 1871:

“The policy pursued toward the Indians has resulted favorably…

Through the exertions of the various societies of Christians…many tribes of Indians have been induced to settle upon reservations, to cultivate the soil, to perform productive labor of various kinds, and to partially accept civilization…

I recommend liberal appropriations to carry out the Indian peace policy, not only because it is humane, Christianlike, and economical, but because it is right.”

Oklahoma had missions run by Baptists, Methodists, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Mennonites, Quakers, Moravians and Mennonites, who had a mission among the Comanches at Post Oak Mission and at Colony.

Catholics had missions in the Potawatomi Nation at Sacred Heart Abbey, at Anadarko on the Kiowa-Comanche-Apache Reservation, and in north central Oklahoma among the Osage, Ponca, and Otoe.


In 1884, one of the first missionaries to the Yupik Indians in Alaska was John Henry Killbuck, great-grandson of Lenape Chief Gelelemend, who in 1778 made the first Indian Treaty with the United States and later was converted to Christianity by German Moravian missionaries.


President Cleveland issued the Proclamation respecting Church property in Alaska, November 14, 1896:

“Whereas…the Russian Empire ceded to the US the Territory of Alaska…the churches which have been built in the ceded territory…shall remain the property of such members of the Greek Oriental Church…

The Cathedral Church of St. Michael…The Church of the Resurrection…called the Kalochian Church, situated near the battery number at the palisade separating the city from the Indian village….Three timber houses…for lodging of priests. Four lots of ground belonging to the parsonages.”


Growing up in a Quaker family, Herbert Hoover spent several months as a boy living on the Osage Indian Reservation in Oklahoma Territory.

After becoming a multi-millionaire in the mining industry and organizing the feeding of Europe after World War I, Hoover became the 31st U.S. President.


He chose as his Vice-President Charles Curtis, the nation’s first Native American Vice-President, from the Kaw tribe in Kansas.

Hoover reorganized and provided increased funding to the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

The next President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, had John Collier serve as Commissioner of Indian Affairs, 1933-45.


The son of a successful Atlanta businessman, John Collier pressured Congress to pass the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934 which preserved Indian identity by restoring native lands, improving reservation medical services, and promoting development of business opportunities for Indians.

The End in Sight? As America Has Done to Israel via John McTernan

 

 

by JohnMcTernan

                            Verse of the Day

Obadiah 1:15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done (to Israel), it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.

Commentary

China’s new air defense zone above Senkakus ‘very dangerous’ escalation, Japan says 11/23/13 The Chinese feel that now is the time to move for control of Asia.

It appears China feels that America is now weak enough under Obama as the Commander-in-Chief to exert itself in Asia. With the weakness of Obama, it was just a matter of time until China felt safe to move against America. Obama is embarrassingly weak and the Chinese are about to test America’s mettle.

Please notice the connection to China’s move against Japan and what Obama/Kerry are doing to Israel! They are pushing Israel to war with Iran, at the exact time that God is raising up China to confront America!
It is frightening to think of America going to war in Asia with Obama as the Commander-in-Chief. This is the man who is a world evangelist for homosexuality, he leads the charge to kill babies in the womb and betrays God’s covenant nation Israel.

He has done everything in his power to sodomize the military. Notice the short time between sodomizing the US military and China confronting America! The judgment did not take long.

Chinese plans for nuclear attack against USAChinese plans for nuclear attack against USA

Inside China: Nuclear submarines capable of widespread attack on U.S. 11/01/13 (This article was in my post of November 2. To read this entire post go to: Inside China: Nuclear submarines capable of widespread attack on U.S.)

Just a short time ago, the Chinese newspapers showed China’s ability to attack America with nuclear weapons and now this move against Japan. The Chinese pattern is clear that they are heading for war with America.
It is crystal clear to me, that God has raised up China as a rod of judgment against America.

Dangerous Times: A Looming Strategic Disaster in the Middle East.11/23/13 This is a great article showing what Obama’s lies and weakness have done to the Middle East. He now has set the stage for World War 3 or, as I see it in the Bible, it will start with the Psalm 83 war. This is the all-out war between Israel and the surrounding Arab nations that will spread throughout the world.

If Israel goes to war with Iran, watch for America to be at war with China. I can easily see God using China to break America as a super power. Once the war starts, it will be too late for America to repent and come back under God’s blessings. It will be like when the Babylonians were at the gates of Jerusalem. It was too late for Judah to repent. The nation was destroyed, and the Jews had to go into captivity.
 
There is nothing we can do but grow closer to Jesus by faith and keep anchored in looking for the Blessed Hope, the Groom coming for His bride. The die is now cast and events are going to unfold very quickly. God has lined up the rebellious West for judgment.

God is about to turn the world we know upside down. Please do not fear but stay focused on God and His word. This will keep you from fear.

May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

As America Has Done to Israel

Hagel: U.S. ‘deeply concerned’ with China air defense map 11/23/13 This map includes islands that belong to Japan!

“We view this development as a destabilizing attempt to alter the status quo in the region,” Hagel said in a statement. “This unilateral action increases the risk of misunderstanding and miscalculations.”  “The Associated Press reports that the Chinese Defense Ministry issued a map showing the new East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone, which encompasses what the Chinese call the Diaoyu islands. The move is seen as an aggressive step against Japan, which bought what it calls the Senkaku islands from private owners in 2012. The islands are uninhabited, but are believed to rest near large underwater oil reserves. Taiwan also claims possession of the islands.”

Iran, world powers reach historic nuclear deal 11/23/13 President Clinton did the same thing with North Korea, and it turned out to be a joke. NK actually completed the nuclear bomb and detonated it while under the terms of the agreement! Iran needs this time to complete its bomb and maybe six months is all Iran needs. The key issue is what is Israel going to do?

“The deal, intended as first step toward a more comprehensive nuclear pact to be completed in six months, freezes or reverses progress at all of Iran’s major nuclear facilities, according to Western officials familiar with the details. It halts the installation of new centrifuges and caps the amount and type of enriched uranium that Iran is allowed to produce.”

‘Geneva talks a facade, US-Iran worked secretly on deal for past year’11/17/13 This shows just how treacherous and underhanded Obama is. Deep down, I knew that Obama would sell Israel out. His love for the Muslim Brotherhood was all the proof that I needed. Now that it is his second term in office, he does not have to worry about the political ramification. This is the real Obama and Hard Left in action against Israel.

“The Geneva negotiations between the so-called P5+1 powers and Iran are a mere “facade,” because the terms of a deal on Iran’s nuclear program have been negotiated in talks between a top adviser to President Barack Obama and a leading Iranian nuclear official that have continued in secret for more than a year, Israeli television reportedSunday.”

He needs to stand strong against Obama. The intense pressure is coming.He needs to stand strong against Obama. The intense pressure is coming.

Will Israel Attack Iran? 11/23/13 Now that the West made a “deal” with Iran, watch these nations unify against Israel. It is possible that Iran will become the “good guy” while Israel now becomes “intransigent” to the West. I think that Obama will try to break Israel. What will happen if he does this is that God will break him.

“Benjamin Netanyahu understands this. Jewish history, and not just Jewish history, teaches this lesson. Netanyahu may well judge that he has to act to stop the Iranian regime from getting nuclear weapons. If he does, then Israel will fight. And Israel will be right.”

Bennett: ‘Bad’ Iran deal increases need for military action 11/23/13

Iran Launches ‘Massive’ War Drills 11/21/13 Iran is building and preparing its military for an all-out war with the “dreaded Zionists”. According to the Bible, they are preparing for their own massive defeat.

“Iranian military forces launched a series of “massive military drills” across nine provinces on Wednesday following an order by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, according to state media reports.

The drills, codenamed “Towards Jerusalem,” will continue over the coming days and throughout the rest of the year.”

Rouhani to the West: Ignore Israel, Sign a Deal 11/22/13 What I think will happen is that the coming war will turn into a world war. There is great bloodshed coming to all these countries as God will use the Muslims as judgment. I also think that Russia will take control over Europe also as judgment. The West is forcing Israel into war and bloodshed, and that is exactly what is coming on a massive scale to the West .

Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

Marco Polo, Kublai Khan and why Columbus set sail via American Minute

By Bill FedererMarco Polo was 17-years-old when he left Venice with his father, Niccolo, and uncle, Matteo in the year 1271.

      Together they traveled 5,600 miles to the east to meet Kublai Khan, grandson of Ghengis Khan.

Kublai Khan was Emperor of China, Korea, North India, Persia, Russia and Hungary.

Marco Polo’s father and uncle had met the Kublai Khan on a previous journey and he had requested they bring back 100 teachers of the Holy Christian Faith and a flask of oil from Christ’s empty tomb in Jerusalem.

Because of wars in Europe and the death of Pope Clement IV, only two preaching Dominican friars were sent by the new Pope, Gregory X.

These friars turned back in fear while crossing an area being attacked by Turkish Muslims.

Nevertheless, the Polos returned to China where Marco Polo was employed by Kublai Khan as an envoy for over 20 years.

Finally returning to Italy, Marco Polo was captured during the Battle of Curzola in 1298.

While imprisoned in Genoa, Marco Polo dictated his stories of Persia, China, Mongolia, the Far East and India to a fellow prisoner, Rustichello da Pisa, who wrote them down into whatbecame Medieval Europe’s best-seller, “The Travels of Marco Polo.”

Marco Polo’s book was nicknamed “Il Milione” or One Million Lies, as it described many things unbelievable to Europeans, such as:

spaghetti noodles, gunpowder, paper currency, ice-cream, eye glasses, thread from worms (silk), porcelain dishes (china), burning black stones (coal), exotic herbs and spices, pinatas, wine from rice, asbestos from a mineral, women’s feet bound since childhood, worship of cattle with homes smeared with cow dung, naked holy men, fields of cotton cloth being dyed, arrows shot from a recurve bow, and an imperial “pony-express” style postal system.

Marco Polo surprised Europeans with a report that the Magi, who brought gifts to baby Jesus, were buried in Saveh, a town in Persia (Iran).

Marco Polo stated:

“I believe it was God’s will that we should come back, so that men might know the things that are in the world, since, as we have said in the first chapter of this book, no other man, Christian or Saracen, Mongol or pagan, has explored so much of the world as Messer Marco, son of Messer Niccolo Polo, great and noble citizen of the city of Venice.”

In Genoa, 127 years after Marco Polo’s death, Christopher Columbus was born in 1451.

As Muslim warriors raided caravans along the China Silk Road, land trade routes from Europe to India and China became increasingly dangerous.

All trade finally ended when the Ottoman Muslims conquered Constantinople in 1453.

Columbus grew up hearing stories of the Grand Khan in a strange land on the other side of the world.

Columbus owned a copy of Marco Polo’s book, and wrote numerous personal notes in the margins.

 

 

At the age of 41, Christopher Columbus wrote to the King and Queen of Spain in 1492″Concerning the lands of India, and a Prince called Gran Khan…

How many times he sent to Rome to seek doctors in our Holy Faith to instruct

him and that never had the Holy Father provided them, and thus so many people were lost through lapsing into idolatries…

And Your Highnesses, as Catholic Christians and Princes devoted to the Holy Christian Faith and the propagators thereof, and enemies of the sect of Mahomet and o

f all idolatries and heresies, resolved to send me, Christopher Columbus, to the said regions of India,

to see the said princes and peoples and lands and the dispositions of them and of all, and the manner in which may be undertaken their conversion to our Holy Faith…”

Columbus continued:

“And ordained that I should not go by land (the usual way) to the Orient, but by the route of the Occident, by which no one to this day knows for sure that anyone has gone.”

On OCTOBER 10, 1492, Columbus wrote in his Journal how his sailors were tired of the long voyage, growing scared, and wanted to turn back:

“Here the people could stand it no longer and complained of the long voyage…but the Admiral…added that it was useless to complain.

He had come to the Indies, and so had to continue until he found them, with the help of Our Lord.”

The Darkest Design of Barack Obama

By Eric Rush

The Darkest Design of Barack Obama.

If this story by Eric Rush is true and I have no reason to doubt it, it is further evidence of the pretense of Christian belief by both Barack Obama and those who are in his administration. China has one of the worst record of persecuting Christians and of forcing abortions, in the world. But this is not the only consideration that this story enlightens us upon. It is further evidence of the lawlessness of Barack Obama and the total lack of any desire to advance the ability of the American people to recover from the mess that we are in. We can not blame this all on him, but the policies and programs that he promotes lead to further debt, more lawlessness, violence, destruction and they further promote a culture of death. It is a policy of divide and conquer and not a desire to lead.

I will not say that we are without hope as Christians because it is not true, our hope does not rest upon anything in this mortal world but only in our Lord Jesus Christ, our home is in heaven as is our treasure. I merely point this out as a notice that the prophecies that have been given us, seem to be in the process of being fulfilled and as instructed by Jesus Himself, it is our job to watch, listen, warn and be aware so that we are not caught unaware.  God uses men to accomplish His goals and if this is the time that Jesus will return, God can use Barack Obama to accomplish this. We need to use our voices and warn high and low of the coming difficulties so that followers will not be caught unaware. We know that in the end time that we will face increased persecution and it is happening throughout the whole of the world to varying degrees. We have lost God’s grace by our embrace of abortion, homosexuality and all the other sins of the world, to expect that we would not face persecution would be to fly in the very face of the word of the Lord. Please click on the link above and read the story and please share as well.  Thank you and God bless!

Siskiyou County in Northern California is said to be “ground zero” in the coming attempts to wipe out entire sections of the country as the move to UN Agenda 21 non-human habitat zones are established. Through a system of Federal government agencies and agents, entire communities have been economically devastated as mining, timber and other resources are regulated out of business through arbitrary zoning and land use mangement interference, set in motion specifically to retard economic and community growth.  Watch the video at

Does this administration understand what economic growth means? (via Mb50’s “Liquid Mud” Blog)

BY JOHN REINIERS, More Than Words

Discussing economic growth usually causes a negative knee-jerk reaction inprogressive liberals, because private sector growth implies some capitalist is making profits even if it means job growth.

Economic growth is the mother’s milk of conservative thought. Conservatism is not an ideology. It is a philosophy. In fact it is opposed to hard line ideologies. It is a moving target because it is based on practical principles, respecting tradition but accepting change.

The ultimate in profound economic change was the Industrial Revolution, which transformed the course of human history and has morphed into the technological revolution, which ushered in economic conservatism as we know it today. An explosion in economic activity followed, resulting in the creative destruction of existing jobs. The net result was more productive jobs, as less productive jobs were destroyed. Automobile assembly lines versus wagon manufacturing, word processors versus manual typewriters, etc.

Undergirding this stunning achievement was the hallmark of conservative principles — that the notion that property rights and freedom should be inseparable in the hands of creative, entrepreneurial inventors who attract investment capital. (Turn the entrepreneur loose.) Conservatism is, and remains, all about economic growth and private sector jobs.

Command and control economies could never have inspired the Industrial Revolution. Even China has embraced market capitalism, referred to by their own communist leaders as a “socialist market economy with Chinese characteristics.” Here’s what Chinese President Hu Jintao tells his bureaucrats: “The functions of government must be separated from those of economic enterprises … Government should not intervene in economic operations.”

How about that! Economic growth with job creation. A communist ordering his government to get out of the way of business — totally antithetical to the ideology of U.S. progressive liberals. This is not meant to be a partisan slam, but rather to suggest economic policies that focus on government regulation are misguided in this global economy. Read the rest….http://mb50.wordpress.com/
