The Complicated Presentation

My latest home page piece gets into the truth that the truth is simple, the presentation is complicated. What does that mean, the presentation? Head on over there, read what I've written. I'd love to know your thoughts, email me.

As it is, I'm always seeing examples of this, and I thought I'd share a few. Each one of these represents a way in which the World System mouthpieces work hard to make the complicated presentation look a bit more easy to understand, while the truth is people who soak up the presentation are being put on greased slides straight to hell.

The first is about the 379 companies who've signed a "friend of the court" brief in the Supreme Court signifying their endorsement of the institutional sanctioning of sexual violence, more specifically same-sex marriage. All of the rigmarole swirling around this subject is all complication, and we could get deep into the discourse. I'm ready for that. But the truth is simple.

God made man and woman. Let man leave his mother and father and join with the woman, and they will be one flesh. The end.

It's that simple. Could we unpack that? Yes, but those things are simple too. The design for sexual relationship is committed adult man, committed adult woman. Is that always perfect? No, we're all sinners and subject to doing rotten things to one another.

Thing is, homosexualists want to have those rotten things done to one another by forcing everyone to believe that a man may join with a man, and a woman with a woman, and that this is just as well. Sorry, but because of the clear teleology that a sexual union between a committed man and woman is the only truthfully acceptable one, this other kind of union should indeed be considered no different than rape, incest, molestation, pederasty, bestiality, polyandry or any other kind of sexual union which 98% of people would also see as truthfully objectionable.

Do you know the companies are on that list? How about looking at a few of them.

There's Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Google, Twitter, Oracle, Intel -- there's 98% of the most prominent IT companies right there. Throw in AT&T and Verizon for that matter. How about Walt Disney, CBS, Viacom, Comcast, Cox, DirecTV -- the most powerful presentation transmission companies are in the mix. Delta, American, United, Alaska -- those are the major air passenger transportation companies. Marriot, so much for the Mormons meaning it when they say they're standing for moral integrity. Bank of America, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, Deutsche Bank, American Express, Visa, UBS, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley -- most of the financial arrangements are made by these people. My heart breaks already, my favorite baseball team the San Francisco Giants appears on the list.

How about Starbucks, Staples, Target, General Electric, Hewlett-Packard, McKesson, Amazon.com, New York Life, Coke, Pepsi, Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, CVS, Pfizer, Kimberly-Clark, Prudential -- all of them brazenly declaring it is fine for one individual to sexually abuse another, that the government should codify that into law, and really, in the end, everyone should approve of this or... Or what?...

This a phenomenal testament to how much those of us who articulate the simple truth of sexual health are being further and further marginalized, until -- well, could it get to the point where we are prosecuted? How stunningly backwards this all is, but then, Jesus said it would be that way. Get used to it.

That list of companies? That's here by the way. See which ones you do business with. Want to boycott them? Good luck with that.

The second item was a statement almost Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said at a pro-choice event. She recognized "the importance of making sure that all of our people have a chance to live up to their God-given potential." Now remember, she's telling this to a group of people who are all about "keeping abortion safe" and all the rest of it. So what does this mean?

It is simple! Abortion is about making sure that people who we don't want around and who will have miserable lives and will not "live up to their God-given potential" should be taken out before they are even born. Yes, that is the simple truth.

As ghastly as that is, the more complicated presentation is just as much so. Clinton has recently been under the shadow of a scandal involving her private emails during a time when she may have done questionable things during her time as Secretary of State. That's getting tons of news coverage. That no one pays any attention when she talks about how wonderful it is to have an institutionally ensconced program in place for murdering pre-born children is harrowing, really, it is.

Here's the news story about Clinton's address, by the way.

The third item has to do with all this attention given to the 50th anniversary of the Selma march and to the civil rights report about the terrible police work in Ferguson, Missouri. The simple truth is this: People are people no matter what their skin color is, but every person is a sinner. Police people can do horribly rotten things, but so can black people. The law is in place to try to keep people from doing those bad things, but it isn't a perfect system. There is a perfect system in place, and that is the Kingdom.

Find Christ and His shed blood there, ask Him for that bountiful forgiveness, turn to Him --

And live.

The complicated presentation all emanates from the World System Operatives who mold and shape and ram down the throats the narrative that all black people are victims and anything they do wrong is the fault of white people. It is pounded and pounded and pounded down until either you buy into it and rage against the white establishment people, or you see if for what it is and rage against the powerful people for enraging you.

Either way the Operatives win! It is all about fomenting rebellion which is precisely what Cain wants. It's all about the culture war and the presentation. Keep the presentation out there -- the presentation the presentation the presentation...

Do you know who Kiera'onna Rice is? Do you? Oh I know who Michael Brown is. I know who Eric Garner is. But Kiera'onna Rice? Not hard, really, she even had a nickname, "Keke." Keke Rice? No? Can't recall?

Didn't think so. I actually thought this story would get some legs because it was about girls arguing on Facebook then going to a park to work things out, if you know what I mean. Keke Rice was a 14 year-old girl who was shot and killed in that fight, but you won't hear a thing about it because she was shot by a young black man.

And here's the tragic thing. I'm just cherry-picking one of these stories. There are hundreds like it, where a black individual murders another black individual. I guess that's why they don't get much coverage, because there are so many. Oh, guess that must be it.

Never mind that we hear over and over and over again how racist Ferguson police officers are and how heroic those Selma marchers were, which in and of itself is not a bad thing but the message is more about how hateful those white segregationist southerners were. All of this is just how the World narrative goes. And goes and goes and goes.

It is all about making it all very complicated then rearranging it all to sound so simple. The end game is simple, though, anything truly truthful is. It all ends up sending it's adherents straight to hell.

Here's the worst thing of all.

Where're all the Christians in this? Why aren't the airwaves being filled with remarks and comments and stories and narratives from those who say they have Jesus' name on their lips? Where is the explosive social media buzz about the 379 very powerful companies cheering on sodomy? About a possible president encouraging the genocide of children? About no one speaking on behalf of the Keke Rice's out there facing death at the barrel of gun any moment? (Here's her story, by the way.)

You don't need the mainstream media to say stuff. What about the power of social media? This past week people everywhere were abuzz about whether or not a dress was gold and white or black and blue!

I think that's what makes me weep the most. The World has so captivated the church, made it into just another World System club, that no one says or does anything. Sorry, I don't want to dismiss those who are out truly ministering God's truth and grace to others. There are a few.

But then I just behold all this...
