The mention of Cindy Jacobs reminds me of Jesus’ words of warning to the Church at Thyatira,
`But I have against thee a few things: That thou dost suffer the woman Jezebel, who is calling herself a prophetess, to teach, and to lead astray, my servants to commit whoredom…’ (Revelation 2: 20 - Young’s Literal Translation)
Her ludicrous statement’s and actions use to amuse me, after all, I thought, who in their right mind would give heed to anything this woman would ever say, but after realizing just how HUGE of a Christian following she has, I no longer found her amusing…just dangerous. Her latest has brought a few ‘not-so-nice’ words from one angry journalist at Addicting Info:
Cindy Jacobs is the sort of Christian who gives the ones who actually practice that faith a bad name…
In her latest installment of 10 Minute Prayer School (didn’t God say something about where to do this…?) she spoke about the “Leviathan spirit” and how to defeat it. This spirit, according to Jacobs, is responsible for a lot of bad things: divorce, family feuds, sibling rivalries, church splits, and even tribal wars….At any rate, this “Leviathan spirit” must be dealt with before it can be defeated. For some reason, Jacobs thinks that anyone with Native American blood is particularly susceptible to this spirit:
“If you have in your bloodline any animus [sic], any Native American blood, for instance — not all Native Americans worshiped the serpent or crocodile, many did — but you might want to renounce that and repent for the generational iniquity,” she explained. “If you are — perhaps you’re Mexican and you might have indigenous blood in you or Mayan blood, those who have Aztec blood in any way, you need to repent for the sin of animism before you begin to deal with this spirit.”
You first, Ms. Jacobs. You need to repent for the evil your ancestors brought upon mine. Repent for the smallpox-infested blankets. Repent for forcing my ancestors to leave their homelands, for the Trail of Tears. Repent for forcing my ancestors to live the way yours did, for stealing their children and wiping out their culture. Repent for sterilizing the women and killing the men. Repent for taking everything and giving us little bits of land for which we were expected to be oh, so grateful.
Until I get an apology from you for what your ancestors did to mine you can take your self-righteous attitude and your arrogant, condescending treatment of my people and stick it under your tastefully cut skirt. And while you’re at it, go drop a few Benjamins at the nearest Native casino – start to pay back just a little of what was taken. Repent? For throwing ourselves in the path of your bullets and broken treaties? No Ms. Jacobs, I think not. See to that log in your own eye.
