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...
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,
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.

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.
