The Delightful Nobel Prize Folly

Everyone has known how silly the Nobel Peace Prize is. It is frequently awarded to people who've been horrifically violent yet have recently announced how much less violent they will be, or to people who contribute to the enablement of others' violence by offering up mealy-mouthed "peace" language to disguise their ineptitude, or to people who've done absolutely nothing but appear as quite nobly valiant racialist crusaders, such as Barack Obama in 2009.

Such is the World System's grand institutionalized virtue signaling program.

I also pay attention to a bit of the Nobel Prize in Economics, which was awarded this morning. It too has a reputation for foolishness, probably the most notable example is the one given to Myron Scholes in 1997, the guy who helped set up the genius Black-Scholes investment formula that was the linchpin in the notorious torpedoing of Long-Term Capital Management sinking to the bottom of the financial world investments amounting to a few billion dollars.

That's nice. Everyone still thinks you could devise the algorithm, the investment formula, the derivatives-value-sensitive program for optimum returns.

Yeah.

Today the award was given to behavioral economist guru Richard Thaler, someone who has spent his professional career merely blithering the most elementary things about the ways that people generally behave in certain circumstances. He's always added that there are all kinds of things they do that are irrational when making decisions.

I've always wondered, ahem --

Who decides what is "irrational"?

Richard Thaler?

He seems to do so with such authority. He does so because he assumes the mantle from the attention he and uber-bureaucrat Cass Sunstein got after publishing their seminal work Nudge, all about how government should "encourage" people to make the right decision whenever they think people are being a bit too irrational. They even had a word for it, libertarian paternalism.

Get people to feel they are free to make the decision Caesar "nudges" them to make.

Insidious as all get out.

I've written some more about this in this home page piece, I invite you to look over it to discover how ugly are the scholarly precepts of the reigning behavioral economists. Here's another one. I've also written this piece about Cass Sunstein's conception of "trimming," a recommendation for public discourse straight from hell if there ever was one.

Considering everything as either "rational" or "irrational" dismisses the fact that any objective consideration of what is teleologically true or even more significantly what is fully righteous must come from a transcendent standard. It is pretty simple actually. From the 14th Psalm...

"The fool says in his heart there is no God."

You can see some of the most brilliantly ingenious folly from today's behavioral economists. And the Nobel Prize committee is all too eager to dutifully make it official.

The Insidious Seduction of the System's Autocrat

I came across this piece in The Federalist I found to be one of the boldest expressions of reality and charity there is. So many people out there sneer that I should not care what they do with their unconventional sexual behavior, and yet I do care.

I care because I care about people's sexual health, their physical health, especially their spiritual health. I care about those sucked into the insidiously lethal sodomist maelstrom. So yeah, that's precisely why I say what I say in my webzine and here in my blog.

I'd been reading Matt Walsh's The Unholy Trinity and he is spot-on with how the sodomist agenda is so destructive, with how those who enthusiastically tell us all we must celebrate the unconventional behaviors of openly active homosexuals, same-sex marriage participants, and transgender claimants are also so contemptibly destructive of everyone in the community in which they dwell.

The problem is the debate cannot just stop at "freedom of religion", which is where Walsh tends to stray. No, it must be about the clear and cogent argumentation that sodomist things objectively and teleologically destroy lives and souls, and that indeed when the sodomist does the work of the autocrat by trying to shove endorsement of their lethal dysfunction down our throats they are, in a real sense, forcing us to care.

I'm only blogging right now briefly because I want to introduce my latest home page piece, which gets much more into the dynamics of all this, and I also want to rigorously declare once again the answer to the lethality at every level of these conditions.

Yes, once again, it is Jesus Christ.

No, no, no, it is not the straw-man Jesus the Roman Catholic Church has propped up that make everyone repulse at the name, no, not that Jesus.

No, take a look at the real Jesus, the one whose work on the cross rescues you from all that. You, you your very soul. Take a look-see at His words in the gospel of John, read them, you'll see how it works.

Sodomist: Anything related to encouraged sexual dysfunction outside of the bounds of marriage between a committed mature adult man and committed mature adult woman.

I'd love to blog more on all this but I'm tapped out. I'm so busy with work and family fugheddabouddit. But I love being in the conversation. Visit me through the email on the webzine, would love to know what you think.

Who Is It You Listen To? Unless It Is God, It Will Be The Autocrat

This article appeared about the inanity happening at Google regarding a bunch of clueless Gen-X'er and Millennial genius computer people trying to get the concept of righteousness. Unless they look at it by God's Word, they'll be lost. Take a peek at what they are blithering in the posts and tweets and rants they've been bilging about.

It isn't that they don't know there is truth, it is that they think truth is what the Jesuit-managed System tells them it is. In fact there are grains of truth in those things in that Breitbart piece, but they can only respond with "Well that's just how I feel don't hurt me." Really, look -- you see it all over the page.

These are fearful, even paranoid people scared to death that they'll be found out so they can't help but proclaim "I'm the right kind of social justice warrior! Listen to MY genius thoughts about it all!" You could even see that they're so into the System's version of righteousness that they might as well be bleating "I'm not a racist I'm not a sexist I'm not a bigot please don't hurt me!" for the 4,829th time in their lives.

Even Breitbart drinks from the same contaminated water. They have some conception of what they think the right words and right beliefs and right practices are, they are just as much a part of their own groupthink as the SJW's they excoriate.

The truth: Everyone intuitively knows a conception of the truth but struggles to express it. What happens when someone is plainly not in touch with the truth, when that conception will harm someone somehow, and when it's your turn to speak? What do you say?

Do you know what to say?

And what should be done with someone who continues to say mistruths that will eventuate harm to someone? Oh they can be blacklisted. Oh it's your right to have your own little blacklist.

Oh it's even better if you can get a whole bunch of people on board with holding the blacklist firmly right there in the forefront of our craniums.

This is essentially, war.

The seasoned SJW can't fathom that, they can't fathom the truth of truth-holders and not-truth-holders having necessary conflict that should be addressed so they whine and moan and pretty much get neurotic. It's all over the Google thing.

To them it's not truth-holders and non-truth-holders, it's their view and my view and their culture and my culture and their narrative community and my narrative community and DAMN IT DIVERSITY WORKS IT DOES I STILL BELIEVE IN IT DAMN IT.

So what is truth?

Look at God's Word. It's there. You'll see it if you read it. You have to get passed the vapidity of "Well that's just a religious book."

No, it does have truth. Objective, certain, assured, real truth. Indeed it is so truthful that Jesus is literally The Truth. The awesome thing is He's also Grace, which means He's pretty cool with you not exactly knowing right now, but take His hand and He'll be happy to walk you through it.

And then, when you speak about things, you'll do it with authority and wisdom and understanding.

Or you can just continue to listen to the Autocrat, ultimately the System's General who dictates everything these people are believing and plapping about, just like everyone at Google.

Really, you can have Jesus, or you can have Google.

Here's my take on hate crimes, it is a bit more of an elaboration on these ideas.

Don't Fear God? You'll Really Fear Everything Else. Just Look at Venezuela...

I clicked on the link to this story in the New York Times. The image here was there with the online story.

I'd love to say a lot about this, but, ya know. I kinda already have. Much of what I'd say here in this blog post has already been said here in the blog and in my webzine. Not many people read. Not many listen -- or understand. It is pathetic. It's not even about me at all. Pretty much just simple wisdom and common sense.

It's just too many people listen to those running Cain's legacy. Yeah, again -- find out more on my webzine. I invite you to browse there, look at some things, think about it, even email me. Be a part of the conversation -- that's cool.

Or really. Please, I'm not all that, really, I'm not. Scripture is what you really want to look at.

Anyway, here's a story about what's happening in Venezuela, and it's all about how fearful the New York Times and its millions of cohorts' are feeling regarding the precarious status of their idol DEMOCRACY. Their reporting is meticulous, it really does get into the details about the horrors of socialism, but it isn't democracy that is in danger. Democracy is ultimately a meaningless fantasm spewed into the minds of people who think it will promise them fulfillment.

Nah, the autocrat always rules, and must do so when sinful people refuse to not sin. In Venezuela sinful people exploited people, powerful people like Hugo Chavez exploited the exploited, his guys consolidated power and forced people at the barrel of a gun to take care of the irresponsible.

They're still doing it. You see it in the article.

Anytime the producers of a nation are forced into financially supporting the irresponsible, much like the way it is now careening toward critical mass in the United States after the wild adoration of people like Bernie Sanders and his philosophy, you get...

Venezuela.

The solution is not more democracy. The quasi-democracy in the U.S. has most everyone voting to support irresponsibility -- pretty much what socialism is. It also features millions of people voting to support sexual violence and the resulting destruction -- this is all the stuff related to homosexuality and transgenderism and all the rest of it.

Anyway, the solution is Jesus Christ. It is thousands, even millions of people rising up believing on Him and just praying like crazy and singing hymns like crazy and sharing the gospel like crazy and praising Jesus like crazy and praying with one another more like crazy and studying and sharing with one another Scripture like crazy and,

...yeah...

Understanding the reality of what government actually does and the Roman Catholic Church's role in manipulating it all to keep people in a state of oppressive bondage like crazy...

I've been taken with reading the Psalms and looking deeply into why those words were written the way they were. Here are some amazing ones:

"I have a message from God in my heart, concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before their eyes." (From the 36th Psalm)

I am blown away by that, that God speaks straight into the human heart with conviction about sin and wickedness and that those who are all over that simply have no fear or respect or understanding of God -- this truth cuts to the marrow.

And then look again in the eyes of those people in that Times photograph above.

There is fear like crazy. The irony is the people there in the photograph are voting. Yeah, that'll fix things. Voting is just so marvelous, cool. Yeah. That'll make it so we won't fear. Yeah, um. Never mind we Venezuelans have already allowed our country's version of Bernie Sanders to run things, and now, we're toast.

That'd make me fear.

Except that, I kinda fear God already.

And because of that man can do nothing to me. My soul is already in His hands.

The Opioid Overdose Epidemic Remedy

I wanted to put up a post merely to announce my latest home page piece. I always try to connect the announcement with something significant going on in the world, and while there are a lot of things happening, my brain is so full of things I can't pin down something now...

Except for a brief reference to something I'd caught about the opioid overdose epidemic, and it does tie in to my latest piece on the impotency of a Caesar-directed church network in the U.S. I try to keep up on what's going on with this crisis, something the news doesn't address much at all, what with all the time they must spend shredding Donald Trump new asshole after new asshole.

The epidemic relates to all the deaths that occur from people simply wanting their pain deadened, and with some kind of pain-killing opioid based medication they pretty much just deaden themselves -- but, as Benjamin Franklin once said, "Nine in ten men are suicides," that may be precisely what they want.

With the breakup of family and community so rampant now, and the bankruptcy of atheism and humanism showcased as the real answer to life's problems, so many people just live death on a regular basis. Not hard to see.

And while the epidemic has roots in the war on terror in Central Asia and the cartel-managed economies in Latin America, the answer is not in a resigned confession that it is all so complicated -- what with all the deep geopolitical interactions of racketeers whether good-guy American political and commercial interests or bad-guy everyone else involved in the narco-trade.

The answer is Jesus Christ.

And the way He and His grace, mercy, forgiveness, healing, and salvation is manifest is through the lives of those who have Him reigning in their hearts, gripping their souls, and gushing as a fountain of living water to those around them. They are The Kingdom, and, well, looking at the vast numbers of opioid overdose deaths, I can't help but ask...

Where are they?

When too many churches are sold out to Caesar through their 501c3 tax exempt non-profit incorporations there are simply too few to minister to the wounded and dying, those who then end up empowering the opioid dealers by demanding they provide them with their "salvation".

Until there is apocalyptic revival in this country, or in any country that will have it, really -- until there is that kind of revival where churches truly abandon themselves to Christ and it is a contagion that spreads, particularly throughout the industrialized west, then people will still kill themselves softly and gently and there will be a gargantuan network of sellers to make them happy.

The James Comey Delightfully Splendid Disinformation Reality Show Extravaganza

The James Comey show is the latest wildly happenin' "reality" extravaganza those among the mainline mainstream media are slobbering over. It is clear they just desperately want that smoking gun to emerge so they can once and for all rid the universe of their bane of existence, Donald Trump.

I'm not paying much attention to it except that it is apparent there is truly nothing there, at least within the confines of World System prosecution.

Still, the disinformation explodes like never before.

One very interesting thing was the response former FBI director Comey had to a question about a particular New York Times report of note. I haven't the faintest idea what was in the report -- it was probably something about how evil the Russians were or how evil the Trump foreign policy team was or any of those things. The answer itself is the thing that is revealing:

“In the main – it was not true, the challenge -- and I’m not picking on reporters -- about writing stories about classified information is that people talking about it often don’t really know what is going on. And those of us who actually know what’s going on aren’t talking about it. And we don’t call the press to say, hey, you got that thing wrong about this sensitive topic. We just have to leave it there.”

Hmm, I wondered after reading this statement.

Does anybody actually care about who's actually driving the narrative? That is, who are the people who are telling the System metaphone-holders what to say and what to do -- do because of their decisions about what to shove in Americans psyches about what they are to believe about things? That's the doing -- these people have a job to do at the behest of the powerful and quite officially authorized atheist, humanist agenda-setters.

As Comey relates, lots of stuff government does must be kept confidential -- even calling journalists on their claims exposes information in some way so they just can't even do that. But just the veritable claim that so many boastful idiots think they know what they're doing. They haven't a clue -- they just haven't the faintest idea how they're being played.

They think they're all over the inquisitive, and the acquisitive, and the righteous standard-bearing, and they're not. From the Times editor-in-chief to its lowest beat reporter, they're just useful idiots.

Does anybody truly ask from where do those people get their world view that so infects all of this? Is anyone willing to reflect on the elements of that world view they themselves hold simply because they've been hypnotically entranced to believe it -- much of it conveyed through the brilliantly eloquent articulations of the New York Times and all its subdivisions?

Are they willing to call themselves on it and turn to the truth about things, better, to the One Who Is Truth And Grace Himself?

My latest home page piece gets into it a bit, that is here. Here was one from a few years ago on the disinformation itself. I invite you to peruse the entire webzine to get a feel about who's really, actually running things ultimately leading up to wall-to-wall commercial-free coverage of a "reality" show that is only arranged to further captivate a reprobate populace.

It Is Always About Your God

On September 24, 2015, the pope of the Roman Catholic Church spoke to the entire U.S. Congress in the House of Representatives chamber. He was received with ravishing applause, and as he spoke the then-Speaker of the House and top Republican leader John Boehner blubbered.

The very day after this event Boehner not only resigned his Speaker position but left the Congress all together. This was portrayed as nothing but a minor political calculation, something similar to "I want to spend more time with my family", and was summarily dismissed as of no matter by just about everyone.

I'm pretty sure I know why Boehner bolted, and while I'm pretty sure some could see this, I saw no one write or speak about it.

The pope, a seasoned Jesuit, very eloquently made the case that the U.S. government needed to get off its ass and start helping people more -- way more, because there was this disadvantaged person and that disadvantaged person and think of the suffering. Boehner simply could not reconcile his intense Catholic devotion with the supposed Republican agenda of making sure disadvantaged people continue to suffer through lack of government action.

He simply couldn't handle the agonizing disconnect anymore.

Boehner is merely one of millions hypnotized by the idea that government simply must confiscate the productive value of some people in order to hand it over to other people, and if you disagree with that then you must be some kind of bigoted racist Neanderthal.

Now please know that this is legitimate activity of Cain's legacy -- comprised chiefly of the U.S. government, the Roman Catholic Church, and the banking system. It is designed specifically to keep people outside of the Kingdom of God from murdering one another in spite of their insatiably murderous desires.

This means that everything anyone does is determined by which god they worship. Even if they claim to worship no god they are still worshipping something man-made, man-devised, man-imagined. Thing is, what hath that belief wrought?

The question is not only, what does your god tell you to do, but where did the things he tells you come from?

There is so much idiocy pumped into the World System by people with the most vibrant devotion to their god, whatever it is, so much of it to propel the Society's work of destabilizing everything so they may have their way with your soul. It is so much that I try to put some of it down in my webzine and in my blog.

I'm writing this post simply to direct your attention to a few more of those observations I've put in my latest home page piece.

Thing is, there is so much more.

I may get to it sometime.

The Oracle Soup

I was in Barnes and Noble tonight, doing the browsing thing which I love to do. I have a teacher's discount, so occasionally I'll pick up a book I'd like, as I did tonight.

Couple of books caught my eye, and I may or may not read them.

One was The Entitlement Cure by John Townsend, who was quite the formidable influence on my young adult life, teaching me about bonding and boundaries. He's an extraordinarily wise man, and this latest looks like more of the same regarding something I've thought for quite some time. I did leaf through it a bit, though not much because I don't think it is quite right to read whole sections of a book that isn't purchased.

The part I did see though confirmed what I thought. That when you think people owe you something, life is pretty miserable. Among those few words I caught were "entitlement pockets", meaning there are at least some things we think we're owed no matter how gracious and deferential we are. It would be good to identify the things we think we're owed and examine them, ultimately laying them at the feet of Christ.

The other book was The Spider Network, and this was about the LIBOR scandal and how it was birthed and grew. Amazing that a few people were given the task of setting interest rates that affected the capital movement of so much by so many. The LIBOR exploiters decided they could make some big money by shifting those rates to favor their own portfolios.

What so many don't get here is that this is just another form of human sacrifice, and as much as this truth is sloughed off as religious fairy tale folderol, more and more people get away with murdering others because they can.

This morning while doing some desk work I needed to do, I listened to Greg Koukl's weekly podcast, and he interviewed Douglas Axe, a biologist who's essentially proven Darwinian evolution false. Fascinating interview, but the last thing he mentioned was an illustration he called "Oracle Soup."

If I came up to you and said, hey, here's alphabet soup in this bowl, but this is great because it will spell out the instructions for an invention you can make and profit from. Simply cover the top of the bowl, then swirl the soup around, and take the lid off and there you see -- the instructions. Take a picture, then repeat. Look again, further instructions! How about that.

Not even halfway through you'd be thinking me insane.

The point Axe made is, why do we so readily accept the primordial soup explanation for the origin of life? It is really no different than the Oracle Soup explanation.

I've recently thought, what if someone found out I'm a follower of Christ and they said, very politely mind you, "Do you actually believe that?" See, it isn't a matter of belief in the truth of a thing, it is true no matter what I believe. Jesus and His life and His work are factually, forensically, historically truthful things. Therefore, I think I'm now going to say in response, "Huh, you sticking to the ground, why is that?"

"Um, gravity."

You can see what I'm going to say. "Do you actually believe that?"

The someone I'm speaking with would most likely be aghast. "What are you talking about?"

"Prove gravity."

"Umm..."

Now I'm pretty okay with gravity, but it still has all kinds of assumptions attached to it. What's the actual truth about things?

While the Oracle Soup story is meant to show that the Darwinian explanation is sorely lacking yet pretty much just assumed, it can't end there. For you see, there are actual words in the soup.

It is just they were arranged by God. That's the main take away, really. God spells out a lot of words, not only in the design of nature (what biologists like Axe are doing) but in the words of Scripture. God is true, and every man a liar -- unless they genuinely acquiesce to The Truth.

In my devotional time I'm reading Jeremiah, again -- I like Jeremiah because of his fortitude in speaking with people who were tremendously dense. He loved them with God's love -- telling them plainly what was what.

Every time I read Jeremiah I am struck by something I didn't see before, something amazing. This one was in verse 18 of the 18th chapter. Here's Jeremiah telling everyone the bad news, telling them to get ready and, in a sense: unload all their senses of entitlements -- and guess what they said. Go ahead, look there, in that verse, go ahead. It's right there in plain English from the Hebrew:

"They said, 'Come, let's make plans against Jeremiah; for the teaching of the law by the priests will not cease, nor the counsel of the wise, nor the word from the prophets. So come, let's attack him with our tongues and pay no attention to anything he says.'"

There may be a lot more to this, yes, I'm not the scholar on this or anything, but I can't think this isn't much other than people being told the truth and then refusing to accept it based on the idea that a whole bunch of smart-sounding people emphatically tell them to never-mind.

They did it back in 600 B.C. with Jeremiah, and they're doing it now.

Some things never change.

The Truth is Not Dead - We're Just Waiting for the New York Times Version of Truth to Die

Recently Time magazine did a modern take on its famous cover from 1966, "Is God Dead?" At that time many were abandoning formal religion for the hinterlands of alternative spiritualities, what with the ability to travel to and communicate with other cultures becoming faster and easier.

"Hey! Wow! Look at this cool spiritual thing here in India! Hmm, Hinduism and all the karma and reincarnation and all that cool stuff! Or over here! Buddhism where you can just let it all go because it's all nothing anyway! Cool!"

A lot of these ideas wove their way into more liberal theological pronouncements consuming some of the more eminent seminaries, and quite a few people then headed off to Woodstock-like events rather than those stodgy old concrete churches.

Today our "post-truth" society now wonders, "Is Truth Dead?" Funny, for that statement to be meaningful, truth must be alive. While it is easy to understand the sentiment, this is why asking that question is silly. The truth is -- ahem, if you'll excuse me -- the truth is that there is only truth. No falsehood, only truth.

Yes, people can fool you, but they can only get away with it if there is a truth to twist. There does seem to be so much more "twisting" today for the same precise reason they earlier asked if God was dead, because of faster and easier communications. Who do we listen to, who do we trust? So many voices out there, all clamoring for my attention!

The New York Times has a version of the truth that it is maniacally pounding into the hearts and minds of an unwitting populace. Much of that agenda I elucidated in this home page piece, and how they do it I detailed in this piece. In fact the full thrust of my web ministry is to expound on the contrast between what the System is doing to you and what Jesus Christ has done for you.

Sadly, not many pay much attention. Doesn't matter if it's my own web work, I simply don't see much wisdom about truth out there at all, from anywhere. The reason is simple, but that reason is a certain truth most people fiercely dismiss because it hits too hard at their New York Times entrenched version of truthful things.

The truth is that all of this is driven by the Roman Catholic Church. The church visible does it by pointing out all the evils all around and then stepping up and laboring ceaselessly to show how great they are at working through it all. All of Rome's subdivisions follow its lead. Those subdivisions include the 501c3 churches who are either doing the liberal thing schlurping up rabid endorsement of sodomy and infanticide, or the conservative thing wrapping themselves in the American flag and gripping their guns as security blankets. Even churches with members who have at least some substantial savvy when it comes to respecting and living the words of Scripture are infected to some degree.

The church invisible is the militant arm of Rome, interestingly called the "Society of Jesus". Too often I hear about "society" doing this or "society" doing that. Hmm, quite true, and they do so much of it through channels most don't see, like the New York Times. The Society does everything it does to draw people into a deeper, richer relationship with Rome, and they do it by stirring up revulsion for insidiously created and deftly arranged threats whether political, financial, military, or all of them together, and then seeing if their prey rails and rips and rebels to further the legitimacy of Rome.

It is so hypnotically enticing.

It is just Scripture says if you have Jesus' lordship on your heart, then come out of that.

But it only works if you're trusting in the -- ahem -- truthful Jesus. Please, He knows how easy we can be fooled, so He's good with you telling Him about being fooled, letting Him walk with you on your journey to know truthful things, talking with Him about those things each day.

Then you'll viscerally understand that truthful thing everyone truly ultimately wants, and that is genuine love.

I was reading in the first letter of John this morning, and wow, there was the fourth chapter. Read it, go ahead, right there, read the truthful things about love.

And let Him open your eyes and ears and mind and heart to what is true.

"Certainty Starts Wars"

"Certainty starts wars" earned wild applause when proudly blurted by Andrew Garfield on a recent episode of the Stephen Colbert show. Colbert's show is an excellent place to learn about the things World Ops pack into the minds of a rapt audience ill-equipped to understand how the devil is toying with them.

Garfield has been the acclaimed star of two reasonably well-received films, Hacksaw Ridge and Silence. Both have a Roman Catholic connection. The former was made by Mel Gibson, a devout Roman Catholic and a controversial filmmaker whose stirring epics are smothered with the most grisly violent content. The latter is a historical drama about Jesuit priests who have crises of faith when they visit Japan and endure some persecution -- I humbly admit I have seen neither film but I do have some general knowledge about the substance of each.

Garfield and Colbert were bantering about this thing certainty when the idea was brought up that certainly is terrifying. This resounded with the audience, who in some measure represents a pretty wide swath of Americans. The idea is all over the place, it is not hard to see: If you are certain about things, you are dangerous. How often do you see that, if not merely intimated just flat-out explicitly bellowed.

Thing is, to the person who says "CERTAINTY IS DANGEROUS!!!" I'd like to ask a simple question.

Are you certain about that?

To say certainty is terrifying or certainty starts wars or certainty is dangerous is just plain stupid. It is perfectly rational, mind you -- people hate feeling browbeat with something true which painfully upends their apple-cart. The key is that it is just not righteous.

But then appealing to this thing righteousness does require firm and unshakable belief in God, and how many of the enthused Colbert viewers have a well-grounded understanding of God and who He is and what He is about? In looking at George Barna's research, I'd say the answer is pretty few.

If you don't have The Standard from whom to learn, to gain knowledge, to glean wisdom, to feel and think and speak and act righteously, then you're left with a harrowing world of despair and loneliness no matter how smiley you are and above-it-all you claim to be.

I got the word about this Colbert interaction on Greg Koukl's fine podcast, and I encourage you to listen to it. Koukl very insightfully points out it isn't certainty that is the problem, it is what people believe they are certain about. World System devotees like Colbert's fans can't see that they too think they're certain about things, and one of those things is they're certain they really want to avoid knowing the truth about their true spiritual peril. Of course they replace that knowledge with System generated pap that makes them feel really good about their benighted ignorance.

The main reason I mention the Colbert phenomena is to direct you to my latest home page piece, and it is all about truth and understanding in light of everything the World tries to pump into people's souls. For you Rulers of Evil fans I include a commemorative mention of Tupper Saussy, who passed away ten years ago this month. I invite you to visit my site, and let me know what you think, I'd love to hear from you.

In that piece also briefly share some thoughts about C.S. Lewis' The Last Battle, and as I'm finishing that book for the third time I'm struck by the features of the end of the age. Lewis describes well people who are so given over to the devil that they can't help but experience the depth of blindness, deafness, and dumbness that marauds through everything. 

My point is right now I see so many people out there who while very smart and very intelligent and very thoughtful and even very kind and gracious and pleasant --

Are still extraordinarily dead.

Really. You can see it in their eyes. No matter how much of a wonderful thing someone is, without Christ they are deader than a door nail.

I do think about Jesus returning, and I do want it very much -- "Come quickly Lord Jesus" as Scripture says often enough. But then, my heart is for those people. I hope Jesus doesn't come for another 10,000 years if it means these people will get it, will find Him.

Funny, in Luke is one of the signs of the imminent return of Jesus, from the 21st chapter: "Men [will] faint from fear and the expectation of things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of heaven will be shaken."

Sometimes I feel great sorrow, I confess, I do. They are just so lost, and desperate -- and dead. From just my own little ministry writing world here -- webzine, blog -- I'd love to know even a few people are coming to Christ in even the smallest part because of even the littlest thing I've shared.

I'd love to worship God in Spirit and in Truth with those who are certain He loves them and joyfully receives our worship.

That's what I want more than anything.

The Kingdom Counterfeit Roars Again

One of my good friends from church put on Facebook a link to this story. The very typical idea: that if you're a person with a top government job -- notably the president of the United States -- and you say you're a Christian, then you should have this characteristic and that characteristic and this other characteristic.

This kind of thing is quite pronounced today because Donald Trump is president, and after he did some prayer breakfast things liberal-minded folks found yet another opening to shred him a new aye-hole by pontificating about what a real Christian is supposed to be like, and they gathered all the ministers they could who also don't like Trump to add credibility to the claim.

"800 good wholesome qualified Christian ministers of some kind say Trump is no Christian so this is another proof that Trump is a great big aye-hole so we should all really really hate him already," essentially.

Now, I could go into several of the items mentioned that they say Trump is not very Christian about, but I just want to share here the most important facet of this kind of thing. It is simply that

People have no clue that the World System is not the Kingdom.

Their cluelessness about this striking contrast is so immense that it breaks my heart.

For you see, I really wanted to put in a comment for this young lady, someone I love and respect a tremendous amount, right there after her link. If I did it would have gone something like this.

"Excuse me, but Trump is not supposed to be a loving caring helper-with-government-type things. He is supposed to be a ruthlessly exacting enforcer cracking heads of anyone who breaks the law. He may say he is a Christian, but really, he is merely a Catholicist -- someone who may look like a Christian or say he does Christian things, but is really just a World System sacrificer or sacrificee. All the Huffpo-enjoying folks may expect him to be something like, say, "peacemaker", but he can only do that by whacking people who aren't peacemakers. It is Kingdom people who are the ones who should be authentically merciful and gracious and charitable and kind -- to the migrant and the downtrodden and so forth. So why isn't there a vibrantly robust Kingdom out there wherever it should be to do that? Why are so many expecting Donald Trump and the federal government to rescue everyone? Why do so many give their allegiance to Caesar when I thought they said they were Christians?"

I didn't add this comment, and the only reason I didn't is because it just wouldn't mean anything. I've discovered, from doing this so many times before, that people who post these things and address these things and are drawn to these things haven't a clue about the Kingdom. They are intoxicated by Caesar and his arts of war and ingratiating themselves to him. Those 800 ministers? I'd venture to say every one of them has a 501c3 tax exempt status for their respective churches, and as such are beholden to Caesar and his rule over their lives. No wonder they are so upset with Trump.

It is his realm from which they do their work.

It isn't from the Kingdom.

In fact, I'm convinced that what I would post would not only be meaningless to those who might read it on Facebook, but that it would actually appear to be nonsensical swearing to them. I might as well have written "Dog shit ramrod to the horror farm, and while you're at it vomit and a great display of cocksucking grease slivers. And never asshole vicious gravitational punk whenever the spit monkey cunt squatters until pus makes it grotesquely murder."

Makes no sense, and whatever it is, it sounds very ugly. Never mind.

And these people go on screeching and squealing about what Caesar will or will not do to make themselves look good.

I weep for these people, all of them. I pray for them all the time, I pray for this nation which is becoming more and more benighted through all this.

That they'd turn to Christ...

The Institutionalized Smear, Part II

My latest home page piece  is about the meaningful truth about fake news. While there is a lot about it to address, such as some things in my last blog post about the ideas sure to be in Sharyl Attkisson's new book The Smear, more and more is laid bare for us to see the reality of this phenomena.

I'd just like to point out a couple of those things here in a new blog post.

This expose about the Washington Post is quite illuminating. The Washington Post is a major mainstream mass media rag, the people who work there major World System megaphone blabbers, and as much as they blab about the fake news they don't like, they're busy making up the stories to add to the grand Americanist mythology they want people to hold dear.

It is, indeed, a critically authoritative duty of Cain's City Promoters, they're supposed to be doing this stuff. It is the most demonic propaganda, but good for regulating behavior of a reprobate populace.

This truth was further confirmed in a Rolling Stone interview with Barack Obama, a fawning glowing beaming paeon to the Current-But-Soon-To-Be-Dispatched Standard Bearer of Hell's Agenda, you know, things like a woman's first priority health protection means encouraging her to murder her pre-born child especially if she's poor and the taxpayer can take care of that business for her. You know.

In the interview Obama said this.

"The most important thing I'm focused on is how we create a common set of facts. That sounds kind of abstract. Another way of saying it is, how do we create a common story about where we are."

There you go. Authoritatively spoken, and as such I don't believe you can't take him at his word as one of the top agents of Cain's legacy.

When you create something you're actually taking the place of God. Nothing is created that hasn't already been in the mind of God. He's already done all the creating. You can invent, imagine, discover, wonder, enjoy, arrange, assemble, devise, and amaze to the things God has put in this world, including the beauty and glory of one's own God-given artistic abilities.

But facts are not up for grabs. The simply are. To create them, and furthermore to corral them into one's own benighted perspective cage and form a story from this is not Kingdom work, it is the System's work at the behest of the father of lies.

It is in fact the Institutionalized Smear.

And where did that come from? Who tells people like Obama and the Washington Post staff how to shape the authorized mythology?

You can find the answer in the fourth chapter of Genesis. Some thoughts about its current manifestation are here. I'd love to encourage you to ask Christ to open your eyes to see it, to heal you of your deafness to hear it, to clear your mind so you could understand, then...

To be healed.

The Institutionalized Smear

A new book is coming out I'm eager to enjoy. It is Sharyl Attkisson's The Smear, and the tease info tells us it is all about how authoritative operatives mold our thinking about the ways things should be out in the political and social world. The emphasis is that they get us to buy into idiotic ideas I've spent a lot of webspace showcasing, such as herehere, and here.

Apparently it isn't out in release yet, but again I'm looking forward to getting into it. Attkisson is one of those intrepid reporters who's essentially been dismissed by any and all mainstream mass media organizations because she's done a little bit more than they want her to do to expose the truth about things. Her approach doesn't quite fit in with the metanarrative Caesar's studio production execs and staff want filling our minds.

Thing is, I'm not expecting Attkisson to expose those who are molding the minds of the operatives molding our minds. It is a place very few want to go, because information about that source is too psychically disruptive. Those without Truth and Grace reigning in their hearts simply cannot handle that information.

There are dozens of standard ways people are hypnotized to respond.

"You're just a crazy conspiracy theorist."

"That's just preposterous."

"Do you really believe that?"

"I'm not even going to consider that."

"What about this [quasi-factual meme put there by the operatives]? That must mean you're wrong."

"I don't even understand what you're talking about."

"Okaaay..." or "Whateverrr..." are some of my favorites.

And even if they do grasp these truths, they generally do little about it.

Sadly, the thing Attkisson will most likely be expecting readers to do is get enraged enough to do something typically political, you know, elect better public officials, or challenge the entrenched establishment, or something like that.

Furthermore she'd probably not get into the critical truth that The Smear is supposed to be happening.

After all it was put there by God Himself. As long as there is a reprobate population, The Smear does its job of keeping people from seeing or hearing or understanding so they'd be healed. Oh, God would heal and save, definitely, but He won't do it if you want to stay immersed in it all.

If Attkisson knew the origin of the The Smear's arranged dissipation, she'd recommend the only thing that works.

Turn to Christ.

And then form worship communities from which the Kingdom is manifest.

I'll give her a chance, however. I'd love to read her elucidate the truth of the Society's roll in keeping people in states of spiritual dissolution. Maybe she can articulate it so people stop responding with the inane remarks shared above, that'd be cool.

My vision is for there to be thousands, indeed millions forming Kingdom cells from which come everything Christ was about -- healing, salvation, wholeness, mercy, forgiveness, deliverance, restoration...

Reconciliation with God.

My latest home page piece gets into more of this, yet again more. Maybe the Lord will use it to move people to be ungrafted to the System and fully explosive with the Kingdom.
