The expression "What difference does it make?" is frequently heard today, mostly, in two very different ways, which convey entirely different meanings. When used with a question mark ‑ "What difference does it make?" ‑ it can simply be the expression of a person who is not sure which of two or more beliefs, opinions, options, actions or positions is the correct one. He still has a sincere desire to find the correct answer, and is diligently searching for the truth. On the other hand, these same words can, and, is used by most Judeo‑Christians flippantly to imply that it probably doesn't make very much difference what one believes, thinks, says, or does.

Unfortunately, the latter usage of this expression is the most popular one today. Furthermore, it is important to realize that such an attitude usually winds up with using this expression followed by an exclamation point ‑ "What difference does it make!" ‑ implying that the speaker has reached the place where "anything goes," that there is no absolutes, no certainties, no unchanging standards. For such an individual, it is obvious that a personal opinion and human reasoning outweigh the plain and eternal truths of God's Word, the Bible and eternal truths of racial characteristics.

Of course it is true that many of the decisions and choices people make in their daily lives are merely the expression of their own personal beliefs, personal preferences; and will differ considerably from person to person, such differences being of little consequence. But it is vitally important to recognize the fact that any personal choice or preference which goes contrary to the Bible is of an entirely different character and should be called by its proper name ‑ SIN. The Bible makes it clear that IT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD WHAT ONE BELIEVES, HOW WE LIVE AND HOW WE REACT TO GOD'S WORD, AND TO ETERNAL TRUTHS.

A major part of Satan's deceptive arsenal of weapons involves challenging God's Word; then denying God's Word; and finally offering by believing and obeying God. Satan used this tactic to deceive Eve in the Garden of Eden: "Yea hath God said?...Ye shall not surely die...Ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil" (Gen. 3:1‑5). Both Adam and Eve soon learned: IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHAT ONE BELIEVES: ACTUALLY WHO ONE BELIEVES!

Cain was also to learn this bitter lesson as he was guilty of the first murder in contrast to his brother Abel who became the first martyr. (Gen. 4:1‑8). All the people in Noah's day (except for his own family) were to discover IT WAS A FATAL MISTAKE TO IGNORE GOD'S WARNING THROUGH NOAH OF THE IMPENDING WORLD‑WIDE FLOOD while listening instead to their pleasure‑mad, race‑mixed, families and friends. (Gen. 6:5‑13)

At the Tower of Babel, an ecumenical spirit of false unity and self effort led the majority of the people of that day to seek their own way to heaven and follow human wisdom in seeking to preserve their society on earth. (Gen. 11:1‑9). In each of these instances, people learned the hard way: IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHAT ONE BELIEVES!

Most Judeo‑Christians today have been brainwashed into believing that the Jews are God's Chosen People; that fellowship with false teachers, disobedient brethren, and the things of the world is not only permissible but advisable. If a Scripture questions arises, they do not study it out for themselves, trusting in Almighty God, and Christ for guidance; they stupidly go to a Jewish Rabbi (an Anti‑Christ in every sense of the word {1 John 2:22; 4:3; 2 John 1:7}) to tell them the meaning.

†††† This, in spite of the fact that God's Word specifically forbids and warns about the dangers of all such relationships. (2 Cor. 6:14‑18; Eph. 5:11; 1 John 2:15‑17; 2 John 9‑11). The Rabbis of Judaism understand this just as do the leaders in the Christian movement. Rabbi Moshe Maggal of the National Jewish Information Service said in 1961 when the term Judeo‑Christian was relatively new, "There is no such thing as a Judeo‑Christian religion. We consider the two religions so different that one excludes the other." (National Jewish Information Service, 6412 W. Olympic Blvd. L.A. CA). And with statements from the Jews such as: "The Jew is not satisfied with de‑Christianizing he Judiazes. He destroys Catholic or Protestant faith. He provokes indifference, but he imposes his idea of the world; of morals; of life upon those whose faith he ruins. He works at his age old task, THE ANNIHILATION OF THE RELIGION OF CHRIST." (Benard Lazare, L'Antisemitism)

Of course, many believers seek to excuse such disobedience on the false assumption that such broadening of fellowships is necessary for effective evangelism and missions in today's world. But, note how God specifically warns about the deception of just such a policy in 1 Corinthians 15:33: "Be not deceived: evil communications [fellowship(s)] corrupt good manners [Godly living]." This divine principle has been stated, re‑stated and re‑emphasized from Genesis to Revelation; yet, the majority of Judeo‑Christians still base their fellowships on personal choice and beliefs rather than on the clear‑cut commands of God.

Compromised fellowships always result in disaster no matter how attractively they may be initially presented. Abraham's nephew, Lot, is a prime example of the tragic consequences suffered by all who follow the path of compromise. Lot's first mistake came from his choice of the "well watered plain of Jordan" as his dwelling place. (Gen. 13:10‑11). Obviously this was a choice made by him on his own personal desire and belief, even though he might have justified it (as many Judeo‑Christians of today) on the basis of, supposedly, desiring to take the best possible care of his wife and family. However, walking by his own "beliefs" instead of seeking the "truth" and walking in Spirit and seeking Yahweh's guidance, always brings disappointment, physical and spiritual disaster.

Furthermore, in Lot's case, his selfish choice at the beginning opened the door for him to "pitch his tent toward Sodom" even though he knew that "the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly." (Genesis 13:12‑13). Was Lot trying to influence the wicked for good and for God? Perhaps, but he was to find out to his sorrow and shame that God's servants CANNOT LEAD THE WICKED TO GOD. FOR THE WICKED, THE JEWS, CANNOT BE SAVED!

Now, read Genesis 19:1‑38, which not only records God's complete destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by fire from heaven (God did not send in a swarm of so‑called Evangelists, Missionaries and etc., to convert them did He? No! He destroyed them for He knew they could not be saved!], but also reveals how much Lot lost through his original and continuing compromises, no matter how well intentioned he might have been at first. Lot lost his testimony, his sons‑in‑law, his earthly possessions, and his wife. Furthermore, his two daughters, undoubtedly morally corrupted by their associations with the Queers, the Sodomites and the Wicked, led their father into drunkenness and moral depravity.

There is a great need for every believer today to carefully read every verse in the book of Jude and realize that the Spiritual and moral depravities prophesied there, are happening before our very eyes today, right here in America. How can any true believer, be he ecumenical, evangelical, charismatic, fundamentalist or protestant, remain silent and fail to contend earnestly for the faith when so many ungodly and anti‑Christ men have crept into the church? How can anyone who claims to be a true believer, go along with the rapidly growing trend of considering queers (so‑called) homosexuals, lesbians and other heinous, despicable, detestable, degenerate sins of immorality as either "irreversible genetic conditions," "alternative life styles" or, worst of all, "gifts of God?" (Jude 7).

There is a great need for all true believers today to hear and heed the warnings God gave His people in the Old Testament through the prophet Ezekiel: "There is Edom, her kings, and all her princes, which with their might are laid by them that were slain by the sword: they shall lie with the uncircumcised, and with them that go down to the pit." (Ezekiel 32:29). "There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion revening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof. Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean the unclean and the clean..." (Ezekiel 22:25‑26) "Thus saith the Lord; For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof: because he did pursue his brother with the sword, and did cast off all pity, and his anger did tear perpetually, and he kept his wrath for ever. But I will send a fire upon Teman, which shall devour the palaces of Bozrah." (Amos 1:11‑12). "And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, AND THE HOUSE OF ESAU [Edom ‑ Genesis 36] for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them [Edom ‑ the Jews]; and THERE SHALL NOT BE ANY REMAINING OF THE HOUSE OF ESAU [Edom ‑the Jews]; for the Lord hath spoken it." (Obadiah 18)

Then, as now, there was a great shortage of faithful leaders, pastors, missionaries, teachers, and other believers who not only refuse to go along with the modern day "conspiracy of the prophets," but who are willing to life their voices in warning against those who have become mixers to please men rather than separators to please God. Without exception, the most highly regarded leaders of our day, both evangelical, charismaticís and etc., are men who fellowship and work with Roman Catholics, Jews, Orthodox and Ecumenists who preach a false gospel and use worldly music and methods in their ministries. So‑called evangelical leaders such as Billy Graham [a Jew], Benny Hinn [a Jew], Mike Evans [a Jew], Jim Bakker [a Jew], Oral Roberts [a Zionist], Pat Robertson [a Zionist], Paul Crouch [a Zionist] and others, are giving "NO" emphasis to sound doctrine while placing a "GREAT" emphasis on fellowship with every perverted form of religion on earth. It is a wrong, unscriptural, dangerous fellowship which they preach and

practice; it is a false gospel of race‑mixing and ungodly doctrines they espouse.

It is time to recognize just how dangerous and deceptive it is to think or say WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? when it relates to any matter on which God has spoken. Those who truly study the Word, search the Scriptures in a sincere desire to know God's Will and to obey His Word can escape being "...carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive." (Eph. 4:14).
