Dear family & friends in Christ,
Let me start by saying that our battle is not against flesh & blood, but against principalities and powers of darkness in high places (Eph. 6:11-12).
We as pastors and Christian leaders are accountable to God to lead the flock He has entrusted into our hands in the right path. We must stop being politically correct, and return to being biblically correct. We desperately need your faithful intercessory prayer support (1 Timothy 2:1-7).
In the last few days I have received several phone calls and emails from Christians (including pastors and other Christian leaders) around the country asking me as to why Australian Christian Lobby appears to be promoting self-confessing atheist Julia Gillard for PM in this election and why the Senior Pastor of City Life Church recently stated in the Age newspaper on 6th August that he was not overly concerned by PM Julia Gillard’s atheism, ”Primarily you are looking at them to have what it takes to run the nation.”
I personally called the Senior Pastor to speak to him, but he was out of the country, so I spoke to his personal assistant who was very kind and cooperative in assuring me that she will talk to him and get back to me. As promised she did call me and confirmed that the Pastor had spoken to the Age newspaper journalist and that his response was on his blog.
I read through his blog, but could not find a clear answer to the question as to whether or not it concerned him that the PM was an atheist, so I also contacted the Age journalist who told me that his question to the Pastor about his concern over the PM’s atheism was very straight forward. For which the Pastor responded by saying, ”Primarily you are looking at them to have what it takes to run the nation.”
We also recently read in the news media and on the ACL website that ACL (Australian Christian Lobby) was successful in getting PM Julia Gillard to speak to the Christian voters through the ACL website, where she made several promises in order to win back the Christian vote.
The question we all need to ask is, “Was PM Gillard genuine or was she simply making promises that she will never deliver. I was surprised when I heard that ACL was giving such a forum to Julia Gillard, knowing very well that she is an atheist. Many asked me “Why is ACL doing this again as they did the same with Rudd?” I honestly cannot understand how a Christian leader could give an atheist such a platform to mislead the Christian voters.
Last week I was surprised to read in the latest ACL news that they still speak of Kevin Rudd as a true Christian. How can Rudd be a true Christian, when he refused to acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God. Furthermore, within one week of becoming PM he stated that “he will not look to God for advice but to his public servants.” Of course, what you sow is what you reap as his public servants did get him out before even he finished one term as PM. Then in his closing speech as PM, he mocked God by referring to Him as ‘him or her’.
Mr Rudd constantly stated that he was a ‘garden variety Christian, whatever that means. I wonder as to how many Christians, pastors and leaders included, are the same. If they cannot see what is so plain and simple, it will be a very sad ending as many Christian sheep will be mislead by these Christian shepherds. (Gal 2:11-14, 2 Tim 2: 16-18 & 4:14, Titus 1:12-16)
PM Gillard promised that she will give more funding for chaplains. Yes she might do so, but could it be that she will remove all Christian chaplains and replace them with secular chaplains with atheistic values?? Can she keep a promise?? When she herself does not value marriage, how could you trust her not to give the homosexual community marriage rights??
I am shocked that some Christians leaders could even state that they are willing to have an atheist as the PM. Ms Gillard publically stated that she is an atheist who does not believe in God. Now she has suddenly promised to give 1.5 million dollars to the catholic church in order to make a saint of Mary MacKilliop because she wants to win back the catholic vote.
How can any Bible-believing God-fearing Christian leader promote her when she is openly an atheist, very much a part of Emily’s List (pro-abortion) Fabien society (socialism) living in an de-facto relationship, refused to take the oath on the Bible and anti-God list goes on. Now to make things even worse she has formed an alliance with the Greens.
I believe if Julia Gillard is elected as PM, mark my words, she will stop The Lord’s Prayer in parliament, remove Bibles from every place possible, make full term abortion available right across Australia, will give homosexuals full rights, will remove Christian chaplains out of schools, will pass laws to ban Christian evangelism and make it hard to speak the truth. Interfaith will become the nation’s main religious force, Australia will turn against Israel, our Judeo-Christian heritage will be completely destroyed, Islam will gain much ground like in Europe (as 8 out of 10 boats carry mostly Muslims) and the list goes on.
So we need to ask a serious question, “Are we going to continue to blindly follow the Christian shepherds who are misleading the flock?” The Word of God is clear, cleansing of a nation and judgement begins in the house of God, the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Peter 4:17).
I think it’s time to ask some hard questions from our leaders.
Why are many Pastors and Christian leaders not speaking out boldly to warn God’s people against the danger of an ungodly atheist Prime Minister leading our blessed nation of Australia, this Great South Land of the Holy Spirit?

The Bible clearly states in Joel 2:17, “Let the Priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the HEATHEN should rule over them; Wherefore should they say among the people, ‘where is their God?’”
