Let's Get Them Before They Doby Pastor Tom Wallace
How could anyone be persuaded to believe that flying an airplane into the World Trade Center killing several thousand innocent people would gain paradise for them? What about young Arab boys with bombs strapped to their bodies who detonate the bomb and scatter nails and screws like bullets into a crowd at a Jewish Mall killing innocent children, mothers, and teenagers- believing that they will gain Heaven by this act of terror? How do they come to believe like this? "Brainwashing", would be the right term. Years ago, Dr. Tim LaHaye wrote a book called the "Battle For The Mind."
When Adam was created, his mind was filled with knowledge and wisdom and he was in total agreement with God. After the fall in the garden of Eden, man became susceptible to the suggestions of Satan. We all have a scientific mind with trillions of cells waiting for information. These cells are empty when we are born.
When a person is exposed to secularism, humanism, socialism, fascism, communism, and such teachings, they disagree with God and the Bible and become their own God. These become secular minded.
Others are exposed to the teachings of the Bible and become Christians. They develop a spiritual mind. The battle is on between the two forces to capture the mind of everybody in the world. Paul said of Christians, "have the mind of Christ. " The race is on to capture the minds of everyone we can before others do. Their future destiny depends upon it.
WE MUST GET TO THEM BEFORE THE MOSLEMS DO.
On a flight from Bangkok, Thailand to Tokyo, Japan the stewardess who happened to be Moslem told me of the loss of her parents because she had married a gentile. Then, of the loss of her husband and her two sons because of the conflict in their beliefs. She had fallen in love again but could not marry because, again, he was not Moslem.
She wept as she told of her heart being broken four times. I said to her, "What you need to do is accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour and let Him make you happy." She blurted out, "Oh, if I did that I'd go straight to Hell." She had been taught that and believed it with all her heart. We didn't get to her before they did.
WE MUST GET TO THEM BEFORE THE COMMUNISTS DO.
A man in my first church told me I needed to dedicate myself to fighting communism. He told me of a barn full of guns, hand grenades, and ammunition he and his friend had stored for future conflict. I told him I was doing more to fight communism than he was. I explained how I had won a man, his wife, and their three children to the Lord and brought them to church and baptized them. I explained that if a communist knocked on their door they would get their shotgun after him. I got there first.
WE MUST GET THERE BEFORE THE BUDDHISTS DO.
In Chang Mi, Thailand there are 2 million people, 6,000 Buddhist Temples, and only 3 or 4 Baptist Churches. They got there before we did.
WE MUST GET THERE BEFORE HARRY POTTER DOES.
Millions of children are being taught that witchcraft, covens, warlocks, and such is a fun thing. Their mind is being diluted to disagree with the Bible and God. They are getting to them before we do.
