Truth is a force of nature

37 Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.

Matthew 5:37

I pray every day for President Trump and his family, as should you.  I pray every day that he is taking his guidance from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  It is the only way he will be able to fight the evil that is so firmly entrenched in our government.

The lies and deception required for the deep state, the Cabal, whatever you want to call them (Satan is behind it all) to so thoroughly control the government, what we hear, what we see, even how we think, is staggering.  Most will not be able to believe it if it all comes out.  But it needs to.  For those of us who have put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ, and have begun to peel back the layers of blindness Satan has covered our reality with, it will be less shocking, though I am sure there is still plenty to be surprised about.  The rot runs deep.

President Trump is spot on: truth is a force of nature.  The lies upon lies they need to spin to keep the charade going will make the fallout all the worse.  Blackmail, child sex trafficking, cannibalism, child sacrifice, literal Satanic worship, all of it needs to come out.  People need to see.  I fear too many people would still rather cover their eyes and ears and live in their happy little fantasy land than know the truth.  But living the lie is what has gotten us here in the first place.  It is why our country is fundamentally broken, and probably beyond repair in its current state.  People need to pay.  Those in Congress, in our government, those spying for foreign agencies, everyone involved in the coverup, all of them need to pay.  Otherwise, it will only get worse.  If people lose complete hope in the rule of law this will get a lot uglier.

This country needs to return to its Christian roots.  We need elected officials who truly subscribe to Jesus’ words, who will let their yes only mean yes and their no only no, and nothing more.

Former IKEA Employee Sues for being fired after posting Bible Quotes

More Christians need to start standing up for their beliefs, rather than remain silent while their culture and religion are attacked, undermined, and marginalized.  Via Christianpost.com:

The popular Sweden-based furniture retailer IKEA is being sued after it fired an employee in Poland for posting Bible verses to voice his objection to the company’s promotion of “LGBT rights.”

The former employee, identified only as Tomasz K., told state broadcaster TVP Info that he was let go from the store in Krakow after he declined to delete a comment he posted on the company’s intranet.

The comment in question was critical of an event the company hosted in May to show solidarity with the LGBT community.

“I was shaken up, I’ve been hired to sell furniture but I’m a Catholic and these aren’t my values,” Tomasz explained.

In a statement, the company said it published an article on May 16, the international day against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, presenting IKEA’s “values and position” on the LGBT issues.

The statement added that the employee published a comment under the article voicing “his opinion in a way that could affect the rights and dignity of LGBT + persons.”

According to the Catholic News Agency, Tomasz posted two verses from Scripture in his objection to the company promoting homosexuality.

One verse was Matthew 18:6, which reads: “Woe to him through whom scandals come, it would be better for him to tie a millstone around his neck and plunge him in the depths of the sea.”

The other verse, Leviticus 20:13, reads: “If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.”

Good on Tomasz, and good on Poland:

In addition to the lawsuit, Poland Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro ordered investigators to look into Tomasz’s case.

On Friday, Ziobro called the situation a “shocking matter.”

“It is absolutely scandalous if it was confirmed,” Ziobro added, according to TVP Info.

Poland, which is about 87 percent Catholic, is run by the conservative Law and Justice Party. Law and Justice Party leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski warned last month that the advancement of gay rights is a “grave danger” for families, according to Bloomberg.

This is not the first time that IKEA has drawn the ire of Polish Catholics.

In 2008, some Polish Catholics boycotted IKEA after the home-goods chain featured a gay couple in its catalog.

Proud Christian nations like Poland will end up okay.  It really shows how far the United States has fallen.  Once a Christian country, likely a majority of the country would go apeshit if the US government openly called for investigation of this sort or insinuate that the advancement of gay rights is a “grave danger” for families (which it obviously is).  One has to wonder if IKEA would deal with a Muslim quoting the Koran in the same way they reprimanded a Christian for quoting the Bible.  I forget where Islamophobia falls, is it above or below LGBTQ on the social justice pyramid?

A few interesting tidbits on the American music industry

It is interesting to see how a massive industry like the music industry in America can be molded and shaped with specific ideas and a specific endpoint in mind that is completely under the surface and invisible to anyone who purports to be a fan of it.  When you pull back the curtain, and see the aims that go into songwriting and how they try and shape the mind and culture, it is disturbing.

I am nearly complete E. Michael Jones’ The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit And Its Impact on World History.  It is long, over 1000 pages, but it is a very interesting read.  One section in particular touches revolution in music and how it opened the door to the sexual liberation movement, civil rights, and even had ties to Communism.  Given the length of some of the quotes below I will keep this portion short, but the basic premise is that there is a lot of evidence that prominent Jews, who were disproportionately represented in Bolshevism and kept it going, commandeered folk music in America to their own ends.

Alan Lomax implemented the changed party line by discovering the leading lights of the first generation of folk singers, Josh White, Burl Ives, Woody Gurthrie, Pete Seeger, and Leadbelly, fostering their careers by guiding them through the political eddies of Washington and New York society, “teaching them songs, socializing with them and serving as their intellectual guide” and ensuring their “unflagging commitment to left-wing ideology.”  Lomax was the ideal promoter, content to work behind the scenes.  By the 1940s, “the urban folk singers he had encouraged and who shared his worldview were ready to make a substantial imprint on American musical life, on the left-wing cultural scene, as well as on the national stage.”  It is not an exaggeration to say that Alan Lomax created American folk music as we know it today.  He certainly created it as it was known from 1940, when the radical choruses waned, until 1956, when the Lomax group of folksingers fell apart because of disillusionment with Khrushchev’s denunciation of Stalin and suppression of the Hungarian revolt.

Wealthy Jews did the same to African-Americans with jazz and you still see it to this day in the rap industry.  Who becomes big, and why, have nothing to do with actual talent.  Sure, some have some talent, but the messages in the songs and the pacts these artists make to ensure fame are much darker and more sinister than anyone thinks.  Think, selling your soul to the devil level sinister.  That is a topic for another time but a nice little snippet in the video below if you’re interested in going down that rabbit hole.

With the underpinning of folk music essentially controlled and run by prominent Communist Jews, it makes the Bob Dylan connection more interesting.  This essay by Miles Mathis is fantastic and goes into great detail on Bob Dylan and bridges the E. Michael Jones chapter with the Miles Mathis section below connecting Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan.  He is not the man you thought he was.  His image was completely fabricated from the ground up.  He was not some regular old country boy from Minnesota that organically blew up.  Bob Dylan was born Robert Zimmerman to a prominent Jewish family in Minnesota with ties to the Rockefellers and Rothschilds.  Nothing about his rise was organic.  It was all orchestrated.  The devil is in the details.  Is it that surprising he uses popular culture in forms like music to influence?

We see more red flags early on, when in 1961, at age 20, Dylan scored a review in the New York Times.  As with Ezra Pound’s meteoric rise in London in 1908, Dylan’s meteoric rise in New York in 1961simply isn’t believable. He had been playing in Greenwich Village for only about six months, had no original material, hadn’t written any of his great early songs yet, and somehow the New York Times does a review of him? He was the opening act for the Greenbriar Boys at Gerde’s Folk City.  There probably weren’t ten people in the audience. So let’s ask the question begged. Who wrote the review?  Robert Shelton, who was really Robert Shapiro, from another family of wealthy Jews. Who was booking Gerde’s at the time? Charlie Rothschild. Does that name ring a bell? Do you think he might be Jewish also? Wealthy family? Also remember who is behind the New York Times. The Sulzberger family, extremely wealthy Jews who also founded the New York Stock Exchange. Even before the New York Times and all other media were taken over by the CIA in the 1950’s, that paper had been controlled by extremely vested interests, to say the least.  So clearly, someone had a plan for Dylan. Or, we should say, he was the front man for some operation.  We will call it Operation Rolling Stone.

We know Intelligence was running all sorts of secret operations in the 1960’s. Many of them have since been partially de-classified, like Operation Mockingbird, Operation Bluebird, Operation Chaos, MKULTRA, and many many more. But there appears to have been an even larger, more fundamental Operation beneath all of them. This was Operation Rolling Stone.  It was the promotion of change in all forms. To what end? The promotion of trade. The Jews and Gentiles that would run the 20th century were masters of trade. They were money lenders and money changers and money makers. These families had always been very good at making money, but in the 20th century they discovered a way to accelerate this money making beyond even their own dreams. They discovered that accelerated trade depended directly on accelerated change. The more change of any kind they could introduce into society, the more money they would make. This is simply because change can always be accompanied with new products. New products = new wealth. More products = more wealth. Therefore, the fundamental and underlying Operation of the 20th century has been CHANGE.

This was revolutionary in every way, since humans don’t really like change. Like cats and all other animals, they prefer things to stay as they are. Living creatures tend to equate change with discomfort.  So to promote change was to go against human nature. It wasn’t something that would happen on its own. It had to be manufactured and constantly sold.

It was revolutionary in another way, since it went against all tradition. Tradition had always taught that change was something to be avoided. All the major religions sought balance and harmony, neither of which could be maintained in times of rapid change.

And a little further down:

Robert Heinlein cryptically suggested the same thing as far back as 1952, in his story The Rolling Stones. It is about a family in search of adventure and money.

So the Rolling Stone meme was a creation of Intelligence. It was likely the title of their biggest and longest running Operation. In this way, it linked Dylan, the Rolling Stones, and the magazine. All were fronts for British/US intelligence. Their prime directive was the creation of rapid change.  Do you think it is a coincidence that one of Dylan’s most famous songs is “The times, they are a’changin”? Yes, they were and are, but who was changin’ them and why? Let’s look more closely at the lyrics.

Come writers and critics

Who prophesy with your pen

And keep your eyes wide

The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’
Curious. Dylan is telling writers and critics not to speak too soon. In other words, to keep quiet. To go with it. This is curious because a lot of the change going on in the 1960’s wasn’t for the better.  These people conspicuously tied themselves to the civil rights movement—which was the positive change happening at the time; but far bigger things were going on which we now can see were negative: the rise of Intelligence, the rise of the corporate media, the rise of the police state, the continued rise of the war economy, and the permanent entrenchment of a secret government. And, we can now add to that the permanent acceleration of society, which would create both huge sums of new wealth and the complete dissolution of culture. Also curious are the lines “And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’”. The songwriter is giving us a bit of a clue there, telling us there are unnamed people behind the spinning wheel. With very little digging, we have seen those names come up already: Rockefeller, Rothschild, Sulzberger, etc.
This is also curious:
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
Senators are being told that they will get hurt if they stand in the way of this change. That’s not really a progressive sentiment in a Republic or Democracy, is it? Congressmen are supposed to be representatives of the people, and these representatives are being threatened here. Why does anyone think this song is progressive?
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin’
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
This is no better. It is fascism posing as progressive politics. If your sons and daughters are no longer your charges, who are they the charges of? That’s right, the State. The financiers want control of your kids, because they can then sell them things more easily and directly. That is precisely what has happened. Kids are now raised by the corporate media, to the benefit of no one but the billionaires and trillionaires.
The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The curse it is cast? What does that mean? How could positive change be a curse? If Dylan is just talking about civil rights here, as is the common interpretation, how is any curse being cast? Ask yourself that.

The order is

Rapidly fadin’

And the first one now

Will later be last

The old order is rapidly fading. What was the old order? The aristocracy. In the 20th century, we have seen the aristocracy replaced by the financiers as the controllers of society. The Jews, who were formerly last, will be first, and the aristocrats will now be last. The old houses will be pulled down and replaced by new mansions. These lines are usually read as Biblical references, as in the meek will inherit the Earth. But that hasn’t happened, has it? No, because that was never the plan. That isn’t what these lyrics mean. No one ever gave a damn about the meek. The same can be said of Lennon’s song Imagine, which is commonly misread as progressive. It is beautifully arranged and performed, which makes it so seductive, but it isn’t progressive at all.

Imagine there’s no heaven

It’s easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky

Imagine all the people

Living for today…

Sounds great on a cursory reading, but if you read it in context of recent history, it becomes far more sinister. As I show in my paper on Theosophy, the financiers have been trying to destroy all religions in order to co-opt their tithe. If the religions are gone, you have no one to go to but your government. The government becomes your priest and confessor, your father, brother, sister and mother, and all your alms go to it.

Imagine there’s no countries

It isn’t hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the people

Living life in peace…

No countries. Does New World Order mean anything to you? Without countries, there are no laws except the laws the financiers impose on you. For them, anything goes. That is precisely what we have seen in the past 50 years, and especially since the 1990’s, when NAFTA and GATT gutted all local laws in favor of corporate rapine.

Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

I can. After they take all your possessions, you are left with none. That’s what we’ve seen in the past decades, as the superrich have sucked the middle and lower classes dry with various grand thefts like LIBOR, quantitative easing, corporate bailouts, and a raft of others. And you don’t even possess your privacy anymore, since they are spying on you all the time, with satellites, appliances, street cameras, web snooping, illegal phone tapping, open emails, and so on.

What’s the point of all this?  It is to show how the evil one uses art, music, culture, pleasing sounds, to influence your thoughts and actions.  This isn’t an attack on the Jews as a people.  You can make a good case that they are more susceptible because they lack Logos in having denied Jesus Christ.  But they aren’t the ultimate enemy as so many fools will spew over and over again.  No.  The enemy is Satan.  He uses willing individuals, often times Jews, but definitely not exclusively, to attain his ends.  What does the example above in using the American music industry do?  It enacts revolution and change.  The call to break up nations, one world government.  As mentioned above, change is a huge moneymaker.  Whether that comes in the form of capitalism or communism what does it do?  As with all of the evil one’s deceptions, the entire point is TO PULL YOU AWAY FROM JESUS CHRIST.  Whether that is in the form of people worshipping money, or focused on revolution, or whatever else, the entire point is to pull you away from the Good, the Beautiful, and the True.

Hopefully the above snippets, even if you are not to the point yet where you realize it all boils down to good vs evil, it will get you wondering and thinking why and how so many things we assumed were true were really manufactured or made to look organic but in fact had underpinnings in government intelligence operations or wealthy financiers.  Start there.  Or the moon landing.  Or any of the other topics we’ll broach over the next few months.  Eventually, if you are honest with yourself, you will see there is a greater evil at work, and once you can get there, you will see that there is only one way to combat that evil.

He’s catching on

A tweet from Stefan a few days ago:

It has been a joy to follow Stefan on his journey to truth.  Soon enough, if he continues down the path and is honest with himself, he will finally conclude that Jesus Christ is the Truth, the Way, and the Life.

This is something that more people are beginning to discover, and are noticing a glaring lack thereof in our country these days.  Christianity is the main pillar of Western Civilization.  We have seen over the past generation, and especially in the past couple of decades, an erosion of trust in this country.

High trust societies come from a shared bond between its people and from a higher calling.  Stated more simply, it is generally easier to have trust amongst people when they share a common language, a common heritage, and a common culture.  When deracinated people from all over the globe are thrown together in the United States, trust begins to erode.  There is no commonality.  Look at any big city.  For those who live in large apartment buildings, how many of your neighbors do you actually know?  The incentive to even try is often hampered when the people living next to you don’t even speak English.  This is the reality of the country we are living in today.

Now couple this with the moral imperative to do the right thing.  America fundamentally requires Christianity to survive in anything like it once was.  If this is to be a Western country, Christianity is the most important ingredient.  We’ve been peddled a lie.  The lie is that everyone is inherently good, that people are generally good.  The reality is that we’ve been living in a Christian society for hundreds of years, and once many people willingly walked away from Christ there is a lag effect where we still feel remnants of that Christian upbringing.  But eventually that does fade away.  This was one of the fundamental issues with Nietzsche’s philosophy.  He lived in a highly Christian civilization and on some level took that for granted and assumed people would behave largely the same way once that was removed.  We are experiencing that today as well.  But after decades of erosion this has been chipped away at too.  When there is no higher moral imperative to tell the truth for truth’s sake, people will find myriad ways to justify to themselves why they should be able to bend the truth.  It happens everywhere.  Criminals justify their behavior in this way.  Scientists do it too.  Money and grants drive a lot of scientific results, not the truth.  This is a particularly nefarious one as we inherently trust scientists and assume they are following the scientific method at all times when in reality science has a reproducibility crisis.  Lying in politics needs no further explanation.

When a high trust society no longer becomes a place of trust amongst its people, it descends into a 3rd world shithole.  Sadly, this shouldn’t be that surprising given our current immigration policy and the relentless attack on Christianity in this country.  Hope is not lost, but more people need to wake up to the fact that the wool is being pulled over our eyes by a force far greater than most people realize.  It comes in many forms and is hardly ever obvious to the uninitiated or those who have been blind most of their lives.  Pray for the wisdom to discern evil, and for the willpower to stay away from it when it has been identified.

50 years ago…we did not put men on the moon

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the United States’ allegedly putting men on the moon.  I used to believe this.  I even posted about it last year, calling it the “pinnacle of our achievement” as a species.  This may upset some.  We’ve been told this our whole lives.  It was a point of American pride.  The greatest achievement of humankind and done by our own country!  But I think this is a good opener into exploring some of the lies of our reality to at least open up the possibility that maybe things aren’t as they seem.  And it will also show how we all get duped at some time or another.  Even if it “ruins” something from your childhood, wouldn’t you rather know the truth than live blissfully ignorant?

They are doing a much better job of taking down videos with moon landing conspiracy ties but you can still find some of them out there.  There is an exorbitant amount of information out there to support the claim that we didn’t land Apollo astronauts on the moon, but we will pare it down to two.  These two alone, with direct quotes from NASA engineers and employees, should be enough on their own.  Forget about all the photographic evidence, Kubrick filming theories, or anything else, and ask yourself if these two statements sound believable on any level, both the official responses from NASA.

Statement 1: All of the telemetry data, which is all of the information from the spacecraft to measure the journey to and from the moon, ALL of it, was lost.

Statement 2: The technology needed to get humans to go safely through the Van Allen radiation belt was destroyed, and the technology is too difficult to recreate which is why we haven’t gone back since and why we currently cannot go back right this second even if we wanted to.

Now, just let both of those statements sink in.  We lost all of the data to the most important human achievement in mankind.  And oh by the way the best piece of evidence to prove we went to the moon.  Does that sound believable to you?  Lost both the footage and all the telemetry data?!  Think about all the historical artifacts we keep around.  You think maybe they would’ve been a little more careful with this, if it had existed in the first place?  Again, don’t take my word for it.  Search for yourselves.  Watch the videos.  Trust your instincts.  They’re conveniently saying now that an intern actually sold it for $218 decades ago and could now sell for $2 million!  It must be true, CNN is reporting it.  How convenient this story came out just two weeks from the 50th anniversary.  C’mon.

Now, can you name any other example in human history where we had a piece of technology that we destroyed for :::reasons::: and it was so complicated we could not recreate it?  Weren’t we told the computing power in our smart phones was greater than the technology used to put men on the Moon?  But you’re telling me there was one piece that’s so crazy difficult to recreate (why did we destroy it again?) that we STILL haven’t been able to recreate it?  And what’s the new timetable for the Moon?  2024?  It’s insulting to hear them use that as reasoning they expect anyone to believe.

There are so many other holes in the Moon story, but the aim of posts like this is to pique your interest and get you to research it further.  The photography aspect, the inconsistency in the astronaut stories, all of it make the claim of the moon landing dubious.  And why hasn’t any other country gone back?  You cannot possibly believe the claims that there’s no point to go back.  That would be a billion dollar industry.  Why not leave a camera there?  If they allegedly somehow managed to beam back the moon landing footage live, with technology from 1969, why not leave one there now and point it at the Earth?  And how exactly did they manage to beam that data back to Earth live when I can’t even get a cell phone signal in the middle of Wyoming?  It didn’t really look like the equipment they brought to the Moon would have the power for that, or the power source for that.  But hey, what do we know?  Maybe they have answers to all of the above holes, but even still, ask yourself if those first two statements make any sense on any level.

There are a lot of reasons why they would lie about landing on the Moon.  The space race, trying to bankrupt the USSR, fulfilling JFKs promise, etc etc are all possible reasons.  Maybe they all contributed.  Maybe NASA has ulterior motives?  Maybe it is to take away from the glory of God.  When you take away from the awe and wonder of the heavens and His creation you can start to see how some may not look up and think of God’s glory anymore.  Maybe it is just one of many ways to chip away at that.  To blind us in one of many ways.

And you may be asking about the astronauts and their stories.  Maybe they were lied to and their families’ lives were threatened, which is why they kept quiet.  It really makes you wonder about Gus Grissom’s death and whether it really was an accident, given how vocal he was against the program.  Imagine how hard it would be for those astronauts still living to keep this lie up.  Imagine having that eat you up inside and be heralded as a hero for decades.  Maybe being told to lie for some “greater good”.  It wouldn’t be hard to see how after living with that kind of guilt for decades the truth maybe could just slip out…

It’s time to take off the blinders

People find the rugged and narrow path to the truth in different ways.  An honest seeker of the truth, if taken to its conclusion, finds Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  He is Truth.  For many this pursuit is something that happens due to a personal experience in life; perhaps a lost loved one or a feeling of emptiness and uncertainty.  Others find it through the discovery or acknowledgment that evil, true evil, actually exists.

Acknowledging that evil exists can be a starting point too.  Have you felt, especially as of late in the past few years, that it seems like things are speeding up, getting crazy and out of control, and that dark forces seem to be working overtime?  You are not imaging things, evil is growing.  It is the evil one who perpetuates this evil.  He connives and uses those who have turned away from God’s word to do his bidding.  Those who live in perpetual sin are willfully blinded.

And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4

What sort of foundational beliefs would have to be rocked before you realized it was much darker forces at work?  What if much of what you had learned that science claims to explain, or the official narrative presented to us from our government, were found to be completely made up?  A sham?  As we go on this journey we will see how and why all these things tie together and how it is clearly a force with motives beyond things like man’s greed of money or fame that will reveal true evil.  And that may be what shows some that there is a light to combat this, that light being Jesus Christ.

Over the next few weeks and months we will explore this concept further.  The wool has been pulled over our eyes to blind us from the truth of our world.  This is ultimately done to keep us further away from Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.  Some of these truths may be uncomfortable.  You may think it easier and more comforting to not hear these truths.  Rest assured, it is always better to pursue and accept the truth than to live a lie.  The longer we live in a lie, and the longer we live in sin, the harder it is to find the light again, and in fact we begin to acclimate to the dark and willfully stay in the dark.

19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.

John 3:19-20

Much of what may be posited on here is considered conspiracy theory, a term which is often thought of as a pejorative.  Look and seek for yourself.  But always seek the truth.  The more people we can wake up, and show that the wool is being pulled over their eyes, the better chance they will see the ONLY way to combat this evil is Jesus Christ.  It will be quite the journey indeed.  Some of these truths will be earth-shattering to some.  Take comfort in the fact that acknowledging the lies is the first step to taking the blinders off.  It is a step on the right path to Truth.  It is humbling.  It can be scary to have some foundational truths shattered.  Be humbled.  Repent.  We all live in sin, but we must do our best to get out of those old patterns and try to live a more Christ-like life.  We truly have allowed ourselves to be blinded by the evil one by living in sin.  Once the blinders come off, it is a continual, consistent, effort to avoid evil and live a life glorifying God.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,[a] in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

Romans 1:18-32

Vatican pushes back on gender theory

It’s nice to see the Vatican pushing back at least a little bit on at least one topic.  On June 12th, in the middle of Pride month, they released “MALE AND FEMALE HE CREATED THEM” which is to serve as an aid to Catholic school teachers on how to deal with the topic of gender theory.  National Catholic Reporter did a nice writeup on the document:

VATICAN CITY — The Vatican office responsible for overseeing Catholic educational institutions around the world has blasted modern gender theory, claiming in a new document that it seeks to “annihilate the concept of ‘nature.’ ”

In an instruction released June 10 as LGBT people globally are celebrating pride month, the Congregation for Catholic Education calls the idea of people’s gender identities existing along a spectrum “nothing more than a confused concept of freedom in the realm of feelings and wants.”

Labeling the biological differences between men and women “constitutive of human identity,” the office also questions the intentions of those who identify as intersex and transgender.

“Efforts to go beyond the constitutive male-female sexual difference, such as the ideas of ‘intersex’ or ‘transgender,’ lead to a masculinity or femininity that is ambiguous,” states the document.

“This oscillation between male and female becomes, at the end of the day, only a ‘provocative’ display against so-called ‘traditional frameworks,’ ” it continues.

The document, which carries the title “Male and female he created them,” was released by the Vatican June 10 without prior announcement. Described as an aid for Catholic schoolteachers and parents, it is signed by the educational congregation’s leaders: Italians Cardinal Giuseppe Versaldi and Archbishop Angelo Zani.

The educational aid does not carry Pope Francis’ signature, and the text makes no reference of the pontiff reviewing the document.

Groups that minister to LGBT Catholics immediately criticized the document. New Ways Ministry, one such group, called it a “harmful tool that will be used to oppress and harm not only transgender people, but lesbian, gay, [and] bisexual people, too.”

And further down:

The new document, which is 31 pages in length, does not speak of accompanying transgender people. It instead issues fierce warnings and criticisms of how children and young people are being educated today.

The text opens by saying that society is facing “an educational crisis, especially in the field of affectivity and sexuality.”

It then claims that cultural “disorientation” has destabilized the family as an institution, “bringing with it a tendency to cancel out the differences between men and women, presenting them instead as merely the product of historical and cultural conditioning.”

The heart of the document critiques modern society’s detachment of an individual’s concept of gender from their biological sex.

“Gender theory … speaks of a gradual process of denaturalization, that is a move away from nature and towards an absolute option for the decision of the feelings of the human subject,” it states.

“In this understanding of things, the view of both sexuality identity and the family become subject to the same ‘liquidity’ and ‘fluidity’ that characterize other aspects of post-modern culture, often founded on nothing more than a confused concept of freedom in the realm of feelings and wants, or momentary desires provoked by emotional impulses and the will of the individual,” it continues.

The text claims that genetic studies have shown that male and female embryos differ “from the very moment of conception.” In cases where a child is born with ambiguous genitalia, it says “it is medical professionals who can make a therapeutic intervention.”

“In such situations, parents cannot make an arbitrary choice on the issue, let alone society,” it recommends. “Instead, medical science should act with purely therapeutic ends, and intervene in the least invasive fashion, on the basis of objective parameters and with a view to establishing the person’s constitutive identity.”

Retelling the Genesis story of God creating humans in his image as men and women, the document calls for a reaffirming of “the metaphysical roots of sexual difference.”

Of course Pope Francis didn’t sign the document.  The document makes too much sense so why would he?

It is nice to see the biggest Christian institution push back on this.  Setting aside Catholic/non-Catholic differences, all Christians need to unite.  We are at a dangerous time in society and infighting is not going to help at all.  Western Civilization is under attack, and Christendom, being the main pillar of the West, must band together to try and take back what is ours.  We as Christians also need to be more vocal about uncomfortable topics like gender theory and transgenderism.  Staying silent to some shows complicity and approval.  It allows these ideas to slowly creep in; subtly at first but eventually growing in confidence and strength as they gain more ground.  Stand firm in what you believe.  Be vocal.  It is not an act of love to watch someone do something harmful to themselves and encourage it.  Just like it is not an act of love to encourage an alcoholic to continue drinking, it is doing the individual no favors if we encourage them to mutilate his or her body as if it was something completely normal and acceptable.  Love sometimes requires telling difficult truths to those we care about.

Let this also serve as a stark warning that what you may take for granted in what our schools are teaching our children may not line up at all with what they are actually teaching.  This was a document for Catholic schools.  There are some horrendous things going on in public schools right now that many parents would be outraged if they discovered this is what their children are being taught.  Do you really want your 10 year old daughter competing in a condom race to see how quickly they can put on a condom?  Do you think it just ends there?  What do you think a school putting these events on is teaching your children about sex education?

It sounds cliche but our children really are the future.  At such a young age their minds are the most malleable, and the values and ideas that are instilled into them now serve as a foundation for how they conduct themselves and live the rest of their lives.  If we allow our educational system to plant seeds of degeneracy and teach values contrary to Western Civilization and contra Christian values they will never learn what truth and beauty are, and never gain the crucial faculties to combat the evil that they will be bombarded with every step of the way.

Satanic Temple challenges abortion ruling

Is everyone happy?  Look how progressive we are!  Via Fox News:

The Satanic Temple said Tuesday that in the name of religious liberty, it would challenge a Supreme Court ruling that upheld an Indiana law requiring the burial or cremation of fetal remains.

The group, based in Salem, Mass., has declared immunity for its members from the law, it said in a news release.

“One of the Satanic Temple’s fundamental tenets is the inviolability of one’s body,” the group said in a statement. “Members … believe that nonviable fetal tissue is part of the woman who carries it.”

And a little further down:

A member of the group in Missouri recently challenged a state law requiring women seeking an abortion to wait three days. It unsuccessfully fought to have a statue of a goat-headed, winged creature called Baphomet placed outside capitols in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

The statue would have been a counterpoint to the Ten Commandments. In 2016, the Portland chapter of the Satanic Temple successfully brought an “After School Satan Club” to an elementary school.

This is what happens when you remove Christianity from western civilization.  Evil creeps in.  Subtle at first, but it comes more to the forefront as it grows.  People used to make fun of those church groups screaming about satanic worship in the 90s.  Saturday Night Live made jokes about it.  It was all fun and games, right guys?

The Evil One is alive and well, and flourishing.  The world is fallen.  The more Christianity is removed the harder it is from people to come out of their blind stupor.  And no, I am not talking in metaphors or figuratively.  I am talking literal evil.  Look at Hollywood.  They flaunt it in our faces all the time.  These aren’t jokey references, they really do worship Satan.  They really do channel dark powers.  More Jeremiah Cohen below, give his channel a look.

A great conversation between JT and JLP

Jared Taylor and Jesse Lee Peterson had a great conversation recently on Renaissance Radio.  It seems to be one of the very few podcasts from RR not on YouTube…I can’t image why…but it can be found in its entirety here.  But a small snippet is included below.  It is refreshing to hear two Christians, one white and one African-American, have a frank discussion on difficult topics that are essentially verboten today.  I don’t necessarily agree with either one entirely on every take, but one they both agree on and that I think all of us can agree on is that government subsistence to African-Americans has done them zero favors.  They went from physical enslavement to a mental enslavement of sorts.  When self-responsibility is taken away, and you are taught that you are a victim, there is nothing you can do, and <insert group here> are the people to blame for your current lot in life, evil and derision will abound.

Jesse is not afraid to take on other “uncomfortable” topics head on like family structure, feminism, voting, and President Trump.  He attributes many of our nation’s problems to a lack of Christianity.  Take a listen of the small 4′ clip below for a taste.

Just speak the whole truth

I recently finished John MacArthur Jr’s excellent book Ashamed of the Gospel: When the Church becomes like the World.  Written in 1993, it is as relevant today as ever.  A brief snippet:

Like the modernists a century ago, churches in the user-friendly movement have decided that doctrine is divisive and that peace is more important than sound teaching.  Wanting to appeal to a modern age, they try to frame their message as a friendly, agreeable, and relevant dialogue.  Unfortunately, it is often the most “relevant” topics that the church can ill afford to agree on.  The pet doctrines of our modern age – radicalism, abortion, feminism, homosexuality, and other politically charged moral issues – pose the most obvious problems for user-friendly churches.  Their undefined theology and seeker-sensitive philosophy do not permit them to take a firm biblical stance on such matters, because the moment they defy the spirit of the age, they forfeit their marketing appeal.  They are therefore forced to keep mum or capitulate.  Either way, they compromise the truth.

If a church is not even willing to take a firm stand against abortion, how will that church deal with erosion of crucial doctrine?  If a church lacks discernment enough to condemn such overt errors as homosexuality or feminism, how will that church handle a subtle attack on doctrinal integrity?

More than 25 years later I think we can see the answer to the above questions.  The erosion of Christianity in the West has been the greatest contributor to the downfall of the West.  We have turned a blind eye to our moral compass and have sown at least one full generation that is spiritually bankrupt.  Where has it gotten us?  Can anyone honestly say we are better off today than we were just one or two generations ago?

Evil will constantly try to infiltrate and disrupt.  It requires constant attention and weeding.  Too many churches became friendly with the world.  It always starts slowly and seemingly harmlessly enough.  Eventually the wizardry begins, that is when some of those hot topics spoken about above are broached.  People are shamed to keep silent on what they know to be true.  Those evil spirits try to bend the word, trying to confuse and mask.  How many times have you heard someone say that because God is all-loving surely homosexuality must be ok?  Or that everyone will be saved, etc etc etc.

No.  Too many churches turned soft.  The Joel Osteen-types only talk about the feel-good mush with nothing about the hard work or dire consequences for those who do not repent.  MacArthur talks about the pragmatic approach too many churches take today.  Churches that use attendance as the almighty metric of church health.  Is a church really healthier if you’ve perverted or obfuscated the word to attract a few more people?  Of course not.

I do believe the pendulum is swinging back though.  There are many hard times ahead, and hard times wake people up.  And with that reality check people are also realizing they thirst for something deeper and more fulfilling than the superficial nonsense some will spout.  The Word does not require sugar coating, or clever marketing ploys, or any of that other nonsense.  The Word speaks for itself.  The Word, in its pure unadulterated form is what is needed.  Sometimes that can be hard to swallow.  Sometimes you may wrestle with it.  That can be a good thing.  Better to wrestle with actual spiritual nourishment than conforming to the world and all its perversions as many do today.  And frankly as more go back to Christianity and the Bible you will see a revival in the Churches too.  Nobody can honestly say that softening the word has helped at all.  Compare it to Islam now.  Islam hasn’t exactly softened their message at all and they are growing at a noticeably faster rate.

The West will likely not survive in its current form.  The wars that will inevitably come as a result of the immigration and multicultural onslaught of the past few decades will result in a rise of nations and like-minded people living closer together and in the end being stronger for it.  Christian nationalist nations will rise.  Even though some of our churches are lost are on the down-grade, to use a term coined by Spurgeon, those institutions can be taken back too.  All is not lost, so do not be demoralized.
