Today at the impeachment hearings television personality attorney Jonathan Turley said something I thought was quite profound.
Monday, November 11, 2019
In my last blog post I wrote about the time just last month I watched John Lennox share Christ in a lecture hall of about a hundred people, young and old, at a prominent secular science college. I spoke about a couple of the key things he missed, and no disrespect, Lennox is an amazing apologist. I'd like to think afterwards many in the audience genuinely considered making Christ their Lord and Savior.
Not sure, though. Not being cynical, I just want truth to reign.
One of those other things Lennox missed is the fact that the concept of justice upon which he based a core part of his address is a scientific concept. This thing justice is testable and falsifiable. It is something that can be proven to affect all people in the same way all the time. In the same way photosynthesis is the way plants make energy, justice is the transcendent standard for people to treat other people and know how to treat other people, and it is so scientifically. That we don't know all the aspects of the science doesn't mean it isn't so. We don't know all the aspects of photosynthesis either -- but we still study it scientifically.
When we dismiss science as only applying to the material things the World has told us we must, we simply plop ourselves deep into the philosophical rat hole of David Hume. By default we're supposed to be followers of him -- this is really the grand atheist claim. Empiricism is the reigning default mentality and if you don't adhere to it then you're a fool but we'll humor you so we can look respectable.
Scripture says, "The fool says in his heart 'There is no God.'"
Hmm. Something's got to give.
This was borne out in the Q & A period when one of those in the audience asked this question, one I've heard a dozen times before but is really quite underhanded. I'd love to take time to go over all the questions in that session, all similar in their insidiously manipulative skepticism, but this one is good for now.
"What proof could be offered that would cause you to abandon your faith in God? What is there that would convince you that God does not exist?"
This sounds so profound, but it is not only really stupid but it is spiteful as well. It sounds fine because it seems to reveal that the student is a seeker, one who does genuinely want to know truth.
In reality it is a backhanded way to say, "Since you don't know for sure about God, and you of all people should know for sure since you in particular are one of the smartest there is about this God thing -- then why should I respect what you say? I only believe in things I can know for sure. I'm the one who is the real truth-holder, and the truth is actually empiricism and that there is no God."
I put in my notes a couple things Lennox said in response, but those things were all rather weak. One thing he said was "I'd have to have proofs that Jesus did not rise from the dead." Now indeed the gospel depends on the Resurrection, but can you see how Lennox puts himself at a severe rhetorical disadvantage? Right away he's throwing doubt into the whole Jesus enterprise. The audience is now thinking, "Oh, but there are all kinds of questions about the Resurrection -- are the records accurate, did He really die, isn't it just a story the disciples made up -- all the standard ways the World throws doubt into what actually happened, all challenges that can be easily answered.
But Lennox had not the time or the wherewithal to answer the question. Really -- I'm sorry, but he should have been more prepared for this kind of atheist bullshit.
I myself don't have the full answer either, I'm not trying to say I'm perfectly capable of it. But I know I'd do more to push back against it. Here's one very good thing to say in response, to the questioner:
"Are you God yourself? Because only God knows everything perfectly. And if God were to share with you the one thing that proves Him false, it would mean you yourself would then know everything there is to know, and you yourself would be God. In that sense, logically, you are proving God. Otherwise what's really going on here is your question is an underhanded way to try throw doubt into the minds of genuine seekers by simply making it seem there is something out there that disproves God. You already assume there is, and that 'truth' is the empiricism claim. Furthermore how does one know a thing that he doesn't know? Indeed how can one certainly identify this presumed thing a temporal and limited mind cannot know? The question assumes you can prove a negative. No, what's really happening here is you are not really seeking -- you are merely using your own dogmatic skepticism to bully someone who does know what you stubbornly refuse to allow yourself to know."
Now Lennox did say throughout his talk that there is overwhelming evidence for God. He shared much of it. Good for him. There is more evidence for him than against him -- and yes all the supposed evidence against put forth by the atheist is easily shot down. What is so sad, however, is how little do we challenge the rank idiocy of these people who ask questions like this.
It is getting scarier and scarier, because so many young people are becoming more and more indoctrinated by the System's propaganda -- the humanism and the atheism and the scientism and the simple flat-out folly -- Scripture's warning us about the children turning against their fathers looks more and more like reality.
Wow. Prophecy is just future reality.
John Lennox is an expert apologist, he really is.
Who will be stepping up to replace him in the next several years?

Thursday night I went over to Harvey Mudd College, one of the top science schools in the nation, to see something I thought was quite extraordinary. John Lennox, one of the preeminent Christian apologists ever, was appearing for a talk I think I saw titled, "Cosmic Chemistry." Hmm, was this a nifty challenge to the materialist worldview? Whatever the case, wow...
John Lennox right there to talk Christ with however many atheist humanist religionist progressive naturalist dogmatist collegians who would be there.
I arrived and managed to get a seat right in the middle of a lecture hall that sat about 300. By the time Lennox started the place was packed. Hmm. What's with that? Who were these people? I noticed many were older folks -- these lectures are open to the public. There were quite a few students, however, but I did see some were brought in by their professors. Oh these kids are smart, but I really don't think many of them have the intellectual sophistication to truly get the sublime meaning of any of this.
Lennox did his typical best at eviscerating the world view of those who think science answers everyone's questions about life. He paraded before us all the pithy quotes from renowned scientists summarily showcasing the idiocy so many simply refuse to be equipped to see.
He also did put in a good word for Christ, and he did do it reasonably well, as he always does. He pulled no punches in highlighting the superiority of the Christian faith. Some in the audience chafed at that -- "If Christ is superior then you must by default be dissing my faith! The gall!"
Everyone was still respectful, but I can't help but see this as yet another forum in which one faith is expressed as just one of many. I'm certain most just left without any real consideration of what they should do with their destiny. The student representative introducing the event shared the standard pap about "respecting other views" and all the other politically correct humanist-derived dreck that tries to keep people's hurt feelings at a simmer.
Why Lennox couldn't do more to articulate the reality and the power and the beauty of the absolute truth of Christ in Him and Him alone, is he badly missed two things that I really don't believe he has the capacity to see. Nothing against him as a speaker and an apologist, or even a genuine man of faith -- he is an exceptionally gifted spokesman for the Kingdom.
The first is that at the end he was asked one last question, one that is very typical: "Why is your religion better than the others?"
Lennox proceeded to tell us about all the other religions and how they are all about following this rule and that rule, and that your favor is dependent on merit. Well, huh, Christianity is not that way.
Now I totally get why he shared this, this way. It is a typical strategy of the apologist who wants to get the nonbeliever the think seriously about the gospel. I get that.
But it is woefully deficient and leaves the listener with the idea that merit means nothing. That you're cool. That you really don't have to do anything to ultimately consider justice and your own part in violating it.
No. The truth is it is very much about merit. You must be morally perfect to enter God's Kingdom and live richly and fully and eternally. Yes, you must indeed merit His favor.
Oh but that is so ugly and mean and horribly intolerant!
Ergh. It is because people have such a benighted view of what this thing justice really is. Consider yet another incoherent view the humanist materialist has -- I don't like ugliness and meanness and intolerance. Well then, don't you then want to not be around those disfavored things when you're living your life? Aren't you being intolerant of the intolerant?
See, you can't escape the truth that merit and justice are two parts of the same principle. If you want justice you'd better be a part of having it around -- your merit to achieve it is unequivocally required.
Here's the truth about true Christianity: While you can never have enough merit to get to the place we want, Jesus Christ does. He's the one who did it for us. That was the whole purpose of what He did on Calvary. Because of His righteousness, yes, the beauty and wonder and joy of the Christian faith...
We now have merit.
Now I don't think Lennox is unaware of this important concept, I just think he dropped the ball here.
That second feature of really getting this audience to fully grasp the magnitude of Christ is, however, something I don't think Lennox really comprehends -- or maybe he does and he's just too Catholicist, just never really having a desire to even somewhat detail the -- yes -- merits of the authentic Christian faith beyond its magnificent counterfeit.
When Lennox splashes on the screen one inane statement after another made by secularly-minded scientists and shreds each one, does he understand who has already told those scientists to believe the stuff they emphatically blither to the masses? Does he know what "deep politics" forces are right now very proficiently filling the humanist materialist mind with this plap? Does he apprehend the identities of the people who are doing this are not only extraordinarily close to home but charged with that duty on behalf of the authorized ordained institution assigned the legitimate task of facilitating human sacrifice for the purpose of keeping an unjust and merciless populace in check?
How much more powerful would it have been for Lennox to use his excellent speaking ability to articulate these two truths, which would have gone miles further to get those in the audience to grasp the magnitude of what he was saying. I do believe Lennox said some amazing things. His talk was powerful. I was tremendously edified.
But I just wonder.
Oh that there would be apocalyptic revival.

I haven't even had a chance to put in a modest blog post just to introduce my webzine's latest home page piece. Fall is a tremendously busy time for me professionally-- I don't even know how I put in anything in my web work at all. Definitely a God thing.
But I always hope to remark about something notable so this is worth your time. How about this folly?...
Today some large number of disled people went out of their way to screech loudly about climate change. At an intersection of a small college town near my home, a town filled with phenomenally disled people -- yeah, I should say here that I intend to say "dis-led," a more accurate form of misled, because these people are listening to, indeed led by the one who's endgame is their destruction -- anyway, at this intersection those people were all in on the folly. Holding up signs about how climate change is this and climate change is that.
When someone says, "Protesting climate change..." (as it was verbatim in a New York Times headline), it is exactly the same as saying "Protesting sunshine." It is idiotic, yet people do it all the time because they've been browbeat by those mandarins assigned the job of destabilizing society by insisting gobs of value extraction must take place to fight something that simply can't be fought.
This isn't the place to get into it, there are lots of places where you can see the details. What I do want to share is how much I do feel for these people. They stumble about thinking they're doing something meaningful, but they're just being exploited, pounded like a drum. What makes it especially heinous is how much they are manipulating children in this effort. It is extraordinarily ugly -- children being pushed to ditch school and hit the streets for the cause, choking on the propaganda rammed down their throats.
Here's one of the main, main, main things about all of this. It is what makes watching this so painful, watching these people continue to slide into Hell at rocket speed. Oh, they're not totally oblivious to it. They know the law. They have no excuse. Certainly the law is good, even good for telling us that we should be taking care of God's creation, that's fine. I'm all for fine strong constraints on polluters.
But the law can never get us there. Never. These people stridently believe the problem is climate change and its crazed deniers, and that if we could just get the planet right we'll be really good.
No, the problem is the heart. The problem isn't something environmental out there. It is totally, fully, completely the environment of the soul. Where is it? How is it? It is the heart that is most polluted. When the body dies, even if it is from the worst radiation poisoning because of a gargantuan hole in the ozone layer, the soul will live on -- where?
I do want a nice planet. I do want it now, and for our children, and grandchildren. God does want us to take care of this place. But it'll only happen by those who love with His love, and because they have an eternal perspective with the understanding that God's sure judgment against the evil on the planet will eventually result in the utter destruction of the earth and the wholesale replacement with a fully new creation.
The Way to be there with Him at that time, even if it 10,000 years from now, is to be joyfully in the embrace of Jesus Christ.

I came across this article, in The Federalist, a pretty good one, but there are dozens of these kinds of things popping up everywhere now. This one gets deep into the numbers, the larger numbers of those dying at the hands of destructive people all around.
The author gets into all the main reasons, and yes, the systematic demolition of strong social institutions is a decent one.
What he doesn't get into is the main main reason:
The World System uses people's sinfulness to enlarge its authority and they do so at the people's request so they can remain sinful.
Does that last statement mean anything to you? Can you see the riveting and quite sobering truth in it? Or do you just do like millions of entrenched Catholicists and shrug it off as fairy tale blithering, conspiracy inanity, or just mumbo-jumbo too difficult to comprehend?
I agree, I understand, if you are not prayerfully versed in Scripture to employ the spiritual intelligence necessary to grasp what is really going on, then please, I censure no one. World inhabitants benefit tremendously from the magnificent work Cain's legacy carries out. God set forth the Roman Catholic Church, the United States government, the Federal Reserve banking system, and all their licensed, contracted, incorporated subdivision entities, all perfectly legitimate and authoritative for better managing the evildoing of people who want to keep evildoing.
If you are one of those people, then what are you complaining about? Why are you screaming at someone else who is wantonly murdering people when the only answer the World offers is more murdering in response?
I do peek around a bit at Facebook every once in a while, and while I love every one of my friends there, some of them post the most idiotic things. One such post featured something along the lines of "If you want to stop the mass killings then be willing to fight to do it!" There was another one like "F***ing do something and it isn't praying and sending thoughts and insisting politicians refrain from politicizing after these things!"
Ahem. Then what is that thing? What precisely are you going to fight to do when, um, I kind of got the idea that you want to end the fighting?
They don't say. Yes they'll screech about all kinds of gun control and other fine-sounding humanist things, but they only amount to splendid virtue-signaling that keeps the Legacy churning out more and more imaginative ways to murder in the name of not murdering.
The only only only answer is Jesus Christ, and it isn't the fake Jesus most churches shove in your face to bleat their virtue-signaling. Please, you really don't have to trust what I say about Him, you can find out for yourself. But the simplest truth of all is this.
"Whoever has the Son has life, whoever does not have the Son does not have life."
Thuh end. There ya go. It can't get simpler than that. That's from John's first letter, by the way, fifth chapter.
In fact do you remember what Jesus said when people did something very similar to what everyone seems to be doing right now? Screeching and hollering and wailing about those deaths at the hands of crazed gunmen? People right there with Jesus, way back then even, said, essentially, "Hey Jesus, what about those people who had that building fall on them, killing them? What's with that? And what about those sacrificially murdered for the governor's pleasure. WHAT ABOUT THAT?"
Yeah, ouch. That is a tough one. What'd Jesus say about it? Now I took some liberties with the text, but again, please, you don't have to take my word for it. Look at the passage yourself, it is at the beginning of the 13th chapter of Luke. Go ahead and see what Jesus said, right there.
Here's the essence of that, though. He told them, "Hey, everyone is guilty of sin that leads to death. No one is any more guilty than anyone else. That means you too. So make sure you turn from your own sinfulness, or it will be just as bad for you." In another context He said, "Don't fear those who may destroy the body, but fear the One who can destroy both your body and your soul."
That's the riveting and sobering reality that so, so many just can't see in all their plaintive moanings about lack of family and community and mentoring and parenting and all the rest of it. Please, family and community and mentoring and parenting are all good, but -- whupp, Jesus again -- He said if you so tightly grip all those things no matter how good and wholesome they are and your heart doesn't belong to Him, then you're no better. What is amazing is that He also said if you give them up and put 100% of your trust in Him, in return you'd get a hundred times those things. And not just in heaven some time, but right now.
Wow. That's in the tenth chapter of Mark, by the way.
Seek and find.
These web pieces are fine and quite informative, but I'm still looking for the ones that share those fundamental biblical truths, not about some ethereal theological confusion...
...but about life itself.
Or even better, about The One Who Is Life And Pours Life Out To Those Who Want It.

Came across this brief article, just getting at what's what, but not at the real what's what. At least it is sincere and authentic. At least we can see what's really happening, especially in light of the ridiculous media coverage of responses to the most recent devastating mass shootings and the horrifically fractured political landscape that ravages the country.
But as usual this author has no answer.
"The U.S. should reexamine the foundations of its social policy."
Annnd... then what?
I've thought about blogging about so many things, but much of why I don't is because I am so busy. That I'm pounding out a few words now is quite a task. I don't put much here because I am so busy with things that God has given me to do to minister His Kingdom into the lives of others. I'm a husband, a father, a grandfather, a son with a father who has advanced dementia, a teacher, a coach, a minister, a congregant, and even a high school football game announcer. Not trying to boast about any magnanimity, I'm just talking about the breadth of what it takes to invest what God gives to someone to love others with His love, that's all. Anyone can do it -- He's always asking people to do it, and while it takes time it really isn't that hard.
I'd blog and add to my webzine all the time if I wasn't so engaged in those things, and please, don't get me wrong, I believe my writing web ministry is important.
But whether or not I do this or not doesn't seem to matter to people who by the hundreds of millions are naked, angry, and alone, and no matter how much they cry about it simply choose to remain that way.
What is the answer? The author of that piece I referenced says what so many others futilely say. "Let's have a different social policy, come on."
The answer is spiritual, and it always has been. And just as much it has always been the case when you say, "Hmm, maybe the devil has a mighty grip on your soul and you should do something about it," you get, "Hmm, maybe you better take your puritanically Neanderthal ideas and get outta here."
Okay, you can say that, you're free to do so.
But you're still naked, angry, and alone because you've allowed the devil to grip your soul.
All that stuff about mental illness and addictive proclivities and communitarian disorder? All of it is from Hell. So many have been seduced into believing the problem is purely physiological -- well there may be elements that are but it still starts with the devil. They believe the problem is something science can answer -- well David Hume may be the lord and savior of a lot of humanists, but still, all that destructive stuff is there because people are letting the devil make it that way. Until we get serious about treating it as such and asking the God of the universe come in human form in the Person of Jesus Christ to take out the devil -- please know He is the only one who can -- we will continue to see this crap happen, indeed risk being victims of it.
You can go to Cain and his Grand Agency of Making Things Look Good with all the social policy recommendations you want, and he'll just humor you and perhaps even devise a spiffy looking treatment program or community bonding activity of some kind, but you'll only be asking him to tenderize you as yet another slap of meat to throw on the altar of human sacrifice. You'll still be in freefall heading for a hard splat in the bowels of Hell. Really, as I think about it, I really really can't see how anyone who actually looks can't actually see that truth by reading about what happened in Seattle.
Yet the millions who are naked, angry, and alone still remain naked, angry, and alone -- and blind.

At one time many millennia ago, Babylon ruled the world, by divine decree. Eventually God brought His judgment against it, and Persia-Media took over for a while. God took them out and the rulers of evil became Greece-Macedonia. Rome soon followed. Eventually Cain's legacy became the blend of Anglicanist power known now as the United Kingdom-United States. This indeed is its present manifestation. Check out the second chapter of the book of Daniel for more -- it is all right there.
Think globalism is a newish phenomenon? Nah. It's been around since Babylon started. All the other great nation-states bonking against one another are merely pawns in the game. If they crack heads with Cain's seven-fold strength, the global hegemony is well-tuned. Once they weaken they are discarded like the flimsiest chafe. They may also rebel, and in that case they are pulverized into oblivion. So, so many once proudly regal potentates are long, long forgotten.
Sadly, such will be the case with the United States.
Yesterday the more patriotically minded roared with approval the display of Americanist machismo at Washington's mall, what with Donald Trump's stirring speech and military adornment everywhere including a fine array of stalwart weaponry including a few boffo army tanks. Many are convinced he'll get re-elected in 2020, but his reign will do nothing to stop the surging wrath of God against a nation who simply has no idea who He really is.
Many believe it is the folly of the Democrat party candidates, being revealed at break-neck speed in speeches, debates, interviews, and rallies. And please, don't get me wrong, it is the greatest folly -- a perfectly understandable reason for praying folk to be on their knees asking God to tarry.
A while back one candidate, midsize city mayor Pete Buttigieg, had a town hall campaign event in which many in the crowd openly reviled him for not doing more to stop a white police officer from shooting a black man in his city. If Mr. Buttigieg had a modicum of a sense of what justice really is about, he'd have confidently said something like this:
"Excuse me but the issue was whether or not an individual was breaking the law, threatening the safety and security of citizens in South Bend. If a given individual did something deserving of such an action by the police in the name of protecting the people, then I am 100% behind it. The police are there to serve you, and keep criminals from threatening you. There is this assumption the action was because of racism. If it was, then I will be the first to ensure perpetrators are brought to justice. But I also want to make sure our community is safe from anyone, black, white, brown -- it doesn't matter -- who would compromise that."
Now, did he say that? I don't know. All I know is that he seemed to be flummoxed and responded pitifully, even declaring in the nationally televised debate a couple weeks later, that he messed it up. He admitted something along the lines of not handling it well.
What? What kind of leader is this guy? I know. First he's allowed sodomism to take over his entire life, being "married" to another man. Those who do this lose a conception of what is right and wrong because if it is accepted that marriage may be between anyone but one committed adult male and one committed adult female, then marriage means nothing at all. And if marriage means nothing at all, then nothing means anything. We are all merely dust swirling about blown by the winds of the autocratic Zeitgeist media. Mr. Buttigieg is one such individual.
How about Kamala Harris, who is now surging at the Democrat polling leaders because she looks like a no-holds bad-ass -- hey, a Democrat version of Donald Trump! -- and she's a woman of color! She really is being given the most attention for those reasons, even though every time she opens her mouth she reveals she knows very little.
Thing is, the only criticism of her I have ever seen is that as California's Attorney General she was very strict about enforcing the state's truancy laws, really putting the screws on parents and their children about attending school.
Excuse me? That's the thing about which you are most critical? That?
Forgive me, but that is the one thing she should be doing, the things for which she should be commended. Enforcing the law. Otherwise she's getting gobs of plaudits for endorsing every ungodly public policy initiative on the planet. As it is she'll have to find ways to apologize for making sure kids are in school but then spout about how much more loving and caring government needs to be, especially when it comes to handing American's hard-earned dollars to millions who do nothing but have their hands out.
Then there's Joe Biden, justifiably shredded a new aye-hole just about every time he opens his mouth. One of the most loudly repeated criticisms -- much of it from Kamala Harris -- was his refusal to support busing in the 1970s. Remember busing? The idea that people should be forced to put their kids in less quality schools just to even things out, you know, all white people being racist and all.
Again, this is the one thing he should not be called on. The idea of busing is abominable, and yet if you were or are against it, well, you're just the worst racist troglodyte. And yet, hmm, we must have a loving caring government. We must make sure government makes everything equal for everybody no matter how much expropriation of people's incomes or moral propriety there is.
All of what is being proposed by the Democrats is just more and more of the most vicious human sacrifice. It is precisely what Romanist World Operatives are dutifully charged with facilitating for the purpose of having splendidly noble knights of democracy pretend to valiantly rectify.
Donald Trump is no different. He is all bluster. He does very little to restore any kind of meaningful moral integrity to the country, even though he spouts about some of those things sometimes. Doesn't matter, they are all given over to Cain's human sacrifice machine. It is indeed why God's wrath will be manifest, sometime. Yet He does tarry.
It is merely because He still loves. He still sees so many sheep without a Shepherd.
Thing is, where are the shepherds doing the work of The Shepherd?
Sadly, so many are just obligated to the state-church system tied to Cain.
So yeah, it is just a matter of time. I'm always praying for apocalyptic revival, that people would be thoroughly blown away by God as the One Who Loves With His Life.
"I have a message from God in my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked. There is no fear of God before their eyes. In their own eyes they flatter themselves too much to detect or hate their sin. The words of their mouths are wicked and deceitful, they fail to act wisely or do good..." These words are from the 36th Psalm.
"The end of all things is near. Therefore, be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins... If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen." These words are from Peter's first letter.

In my latest homepage piece, I get a bit more into what The Babylon Bee satirized, "The Inclusivity Gauntlet." The loud and ravenous leftist voice in this country has gone so far in establishing an entrenched victim class that people who are not members have been relegated to second-class status, at least as far as the humanist hegemony proclaims.
The effect of the Inclusivity Totalitarianism is indeed reaching critical mass on that demographic:
Older, white, hetero, Christian males.
Don't take my word for it. Please check out this piece on the suicide rates of these men. It isn't just that many of them are committing suicide, as a portion of the total population it is a small number. It is just that it is larger than it has ever been, and the reasons are wide and varied. The piece is from a pretty liberal publication and it talks disdainfully about guns and liquor, but the most significant reasons are not that hard to grasp.
The marauding idea of institutionally mandated inclusivity is one of them.
It is a core truth about men that they desire challenges they may address in order to make the world around them better for their families and communities, even their nations. They long for the commensurate respect from others for the industry they contribute and energy the expend, indeed very much masculine in nature.
It is not at all hard to see what the more and more powerful and pervasive leftist voice is telling them.
"Take a hike. You're too toxic. We're taking over now."
In what ways?
Sodomism. This is simply the idea that one may engage in a sexual relationship that does not involve one adult man married to one adult woman. What is the message heard by men who live and work by their natural God-imbued manhood? It is that the transcendent value of what you do in the way God made men and the way God made women to respond to that is meaningless. It isn't enough that a sodomist-minded individual says "You do your thing and we do ours," the fact is society expects men to adopt, even celebrate their ideas about this, and it kills them. Any given man doesn't embrace the sodomist mentality? They're now openly reviled.
Abortion. One of the most profoundly wounded victims in the rampant abortion environment we've had for some time is the father. It isn't just because he too may be grieving for the child murdered for convenience sake, but it is that the feminist voice that gives impetus to the abortion mentality has told men, "You don't matter. No man should be making decisions because it is the woman's body." This message eviscerates the man's dignity and consideration of responsibility in either being chaste ("Hey, if things go sideways this gal can just get an abortion") or taking care of the child ("Whew, good thing there's abortion because I sure don't want to mess with it -- good thing everyone is letting me off the hook").
Racialism. The claims that there are such things as "white privilege" and "systemic racism" come straight from Hell. Yet they are streaming from the Jesuit-animated university network like a locomotive at warp speed. Nobody denies that race-based slavery is an awful thing. Yet people are accused of the worst racist crimes just because they are white, as a rule. Most white men are fully committed to sustaining a world where everyone gets along, looks for the best in anyone, and yet the message here is, "Never mind, you can't do as much as us young darker-skinned sexually unconventional females can."
You may not think these things afflict males in this country, but they do.
What to do? A number of things.
First realize where it is coming from. This isn't just the product of some crazy leftist peacenik-minded rabble-rousers. It is deftly designed and arranged program of destabilization coming from the extraordinarily powerful legacy of Cain to build cities for the purpose of cracking heads. While it is the federal government and banking system, it is also the Roman Catholic Church and its subsidiaries, 501c3 churches contractually obligated to Rome and liable to adopt leftist humanist agenda items that replace the gospel. Understand what the System is doing and you're halfway to freedom.
But it can't stop there, because the most laborious humanism activists are just Cain's unwitting agents trying to get more System to amend the System. Yowza. Furthermore this is the way it is supposed to be. System operatives do System things because that is what is required to keep a reprobate populace in check. Every one of us is deserving of God's wrath because of our sinfulness, the System is just carrying out its duty to exploit that.
It is brutal, it is.
The answer is to contrast the System with The Kingdom, where the One who died on the emblem of Caesarian justice did so with you in mind. Because God loved you with His life, He wants to give you not only Him and The Kingdom, but peace, joy, hope, mercy, freedom, righteousness, forgiveness, eternity, beauty, glory, companionship, and a plethora of wonderful matters.
Christ doesn't just offer this to older white males, but to sexually confused racially exploited females, or any other person of any kind who desires healing and assurance of God's care and love.
Anyway, I wrote a bit more elaborately about it at my webzine, I'd love for you to check it out, and ultimately no matter what I'd love for you to
Find Him and The Kingdom.

Sure enough, after Georgia passed a bill allowing abortions up six weeks of pregnancy, Alabama got around to passing a bill effectively prohibiting all abortions. Good for them! Except for one thing.
It still doesn't mean anything unless everyone everywhere in every state -- indeed every nation on the planet -- summarily outlaws abortion, period.
The reason is simple. Some in Alabama admitted the law is designed to put pressure on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. Many pro-lifers like this idea because it will allow states to decide what to do with abortion. Good thing.
Remember when they tried the principle of popular sovereignty to address slavery back in the 1840s, 1850s? Let the states decide if they want slavery or not. Except that, just like abortion, slavery is something so repulsively immoral that it simply should not be up to a vote.
And abortion, just like slavery, must be categorically, unequivocally made unconstitutional, illegal, and subject to the strictest prosecution.
What about the mother? Yes, indeed, what about the mother? What about this permissive attitude of abortion which eviscerates the entire beauty and value of motherhood? How contemptibly disrespectful to women to convince them of this, to make them think that by getting an abortion they are more of a woman, more of a person. How diabolically contemptible.
What about the man? I saw a meme that had over and over again, "A man should not make laws about a woman's body." How about this: "A man and a woman should not engage in sexual immorality to the extent that their actions would produce a child they would murder before it is born." How come that is never shared? How come pro-lifers barely call out both mother and father for their behavior that causes there to be a situation in which they'd murder their child to begin with?
With all this right now the kind of society that allows children to be murdered so wantonly is indeed being exposed for what it is.
So yeah, some are thinking the Supreme Court will be taking this on, hearing arguments sometime maybe as soon as next year. I know they don't want to touch it with a five-thousand foot pole. The liberals on the court, all four of them, will certainly uphold Roe with the most intense ferocity. Everyone assumes the other five are pretty solid conservatives, but already John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh have not been faithfully conservative, yet as Catholics you'd think they support overruling Roe.
Nah. They're just as subject to the dictates of the profoundly Jesuit-infused mainstream as anyone, and they're likely to bend to the idea that, well, no one should tell a woman what to do in the name of freedom and all that.
Never mind that even the best pro-lifers lose sight of the fact that if that baby is a human being there is absolutely no justification for its murder, none.
Indeed that is one of the frightening things about the explosion of the abortion discourse today, is the abjectly insane things pro-abortionists say to defend systematic murder of the pre-born. Just purely idiotic, across the board. A lot of those things are shared by the dozen most showcased candidates for the Democrat party presidential nomination.
Thing is, they just want votes so those things are merely the things spewed by many in the general populace, those things in turn bilged into the mainstream by the Society of Jesus through its academia and media.
As it is, what must happen is this. There must be apocalyptic revival that moves people to see the System for what it is, and legions of men and women start respecting one another again -- they start respecting their sexualities and the transcendent value of children and family. People intractably devoted to the System will continue to equivocate and dissemble and blither the worst things to keep the abortion mill churning.
Otherwise, it would be nice if the Supreme Court didn't just overturn Roe but went all out and said the one thing that would do the most to save the lives of pre-born children, one simple five word phrase:
"He/she is a human being."
The Supreme Court could say that, any given legislature can say that, but all that's still the System. It requires belief on and devotion to Christ, His ways and His Kingdom, to actually make a dent in this abortion thing.
Sadly, we'll still see idiocy being rocket-barfed all around, and children will still die in the womb.

Recently there has been quite a reaction to the fetal heartbeat law Georgia passed. Liberal "pro-choice" people went crazy against it, while conservative "pro-life" people cheered for it.
Is there no one who thinks this bill is extraordinarily diabolical, simply because saying it is illegal to get an abortion after around six weeks makes it okay to get one before that?
Huh. When precisely does a baby become a human being after conception? Please, what difference does it make when the heartbeat is detected? For anyone to declare they are pleased with the Georgia bill shows they are simply hypnotized by the devil's schemes. And I have heard so many good, wholesome, thoughtful Christians say they favor this bill.
This saddens me tremendously, and always has. There are all kinds of rationalizations that go into trying to work out some public policy positioning that makes Christians feel good about their moral stature, yet much of it is either sustaining ill-arranged thinking or buying into the System's designs, or both.
I've written for years about why this happens. I specifically called out one of the best apologists for the pro-life cause, but have never heard from this gentleman and have never heard him give up his desire to work within the System. As I wrote there, working within the System is indeed fine for saving some babies lives -- of course this is the incrementalist approach that many adopt but is so pathetically inadequate.
"Cobelligerency" will not only not end abortion but it actually keeps it going.
It keeps it going because we all settle back in our moral rationalizing that it is a good thing that the state officially authorize the murder of preborn children before six weeks of gestation.
Sorry, this is just plain demonic. So what do I do, seeing a richly Catholicized populace brazenly demonstrate that they just don't get it? What do I do? I pray like crazy for apocalyptic revival, I pray for this all the time. That people would see how seduced they are by the System, all of it -- you can see what it is at my webzine, I'm happy to share it with you.
That they would come out and live richly in the Kingdom.

Why does this event get so much news coverage? People in various places are being victimized by murder, war, famine -- quite a bit around the globe, even today, right now -- yet, this is what is plastered before us on every news outlet. And the cries of lament from the broadcasters and those they are interviewing, pay attention to the language -- just the impressions of the magnitude of such an event. For a building.
There is no question this is a classic evidence for how Catholicized the globe is. So many people intractably captivated by one of the many idols erected by Rome. It isn't at all that the cathedral itself isn't a beautiful architectural work.
It is just how people respond to it.
It is as if it is part of their identity, and I'm not making this up. The broadcasters and the interviewees speaking of it in the most reverent ways, so melodramatic, so over-the-top.
It really is nothing other than idolatry.
Ironically I kind of see this as a symbol of what will indeed happen on the last day. Rome fulfills its purpose now, managing the sin of those who ask it too -- and they get in return lots of showcased spectacles like imposing churchly buildings. But on the last day it will no longer be needed and will be sent into the lake of fire. Sure Notre-Dame will be repaired and renovated and be better than ever.
Cain's duties as chief city builder would require nothing less.
But for authentic freedom you need to visit the place with no such items. In fact it isn't even a place, but a Person, and you can identify Him easily enough -- He's the One with the nail-scarred hands and feet.
Wonder if the news will share any stories about Him. Sure it is "Holy Week" and one could easily say yes, why yes they will. I can't say those stories won't be about Him, but do you know Him well enough to know?

There was a Walk-For-Life event we had planned to attend -- we'd even gotten a few pledges. We're not going mostly because we've had other things arise. I had actually wanted to go just to see what happened there, not as much to be a part of ending abortion.
These things don't end abortion.
They may even make it so there'll be more of them, at best there won't be any change. In the U.S. in 2017 there were about 900,000 abortions. In 2018 there were again about 900,000 abortions. How many Walk-For-Life events were there in that time? How many crisis pregnancy fundraising dinners were there? How many pro-life rallies and marches were there, in that given year's time period there?
And how come nothing changes?
In fact there are 40 million abortions every year worldwide. Did you get that number? 40 million babies die at the hands of their own mothers and fathers every year. When I look at that my heart breaks yet again.
I'm sure all the Walk-For-Lifers and crisis pregnancy center sponsors and pro-life marchers and even pundits and speakers the world 'round -- in a real sense I'm one of them blogging about it right now -- believe that their two-cent contribution will help. Honestly, I shouldn't be so cynical. Maybe a life was saved because of their efforts. Kudos to them for that, genuinely.
On the radio yesterday afternoon I heard an interview with a legislator of some sort, I didn't catch his name. From the way he spoke I believe he was a U.S. Congressman. He was beaming about how much support he received from his legislative colleagues about his preventing infanticide bill, you know the one, the "Keep the Baby Alive After a Botched Abortion Attempt" bill.
I couldn't hold it in any longer. I wept buckets right there in my vehicle, right there in the middle of traffic waiting for the stoplight to change. It wasn't at all tears of joy because they were finally getting around to this kind of thing, not at all.
They were tears of abject sorrow simply because we've allowed it to get that far. What kind of barbarians are we to get all giddy about this when already someone was already all-in on murdering a child about to be born anyway?
I know a lot of why. It is a truth so many slough off because they've been so hypnotized to twist their very souls in such a way as to refuse to believe it.
It is that so much of the U.S, indeed so much of the world has been thoroughly Catholicized. This is not necessarily a bad thing, because the Roman Catholic Church is the legitimate ecclesiastical authority for the most proper sin management. This is precisely why having so much anti-abortion stuff splashing about everywhere just brings more attention to the practice without really having any feasible constraints against it. All those proposed laws to to try to limit it?
They don't mean a lick if they don't meaningfully outlaw abortion from conception.
But the Roman Catholic Church is so in favor of this kind of thing? How can you say all this about the church?
Rome is only in favor of anti-abortion policy because it draws more attention to its leadership so people will pay more attention to their righteous crusade against it. As long as abortion is around, there is something really bad for them to fight against.
This isn't a bad thing necessarily! It is great for those who must have their sinfulness managed. That's precisely what the Roman Catholic Church is for. It was ordained by God for that very purpose -- you can read about it in the fourth chapter of the book of Genesis.
For those who want freedom from all that, as well as peace, joy, righteousness, mercy, grace, and the strength and wisdom to understand, comprehend, and authentically extend life to others including preborn children as well as their abortion-minded parents...
Jesus Christ is the one you want to talk to.

It is beautiful outside, sunny, warm, a bit breezy, and while there is likely some area on the globe where a weather event has caused some concern -- even a major one like recently in Mozambique where flooding devastated some places -- for the most part the earth's climate is in good shape.
If you were to read the climate alarmist literature from 30 or 40 years ago, however, you'd see that all this should not be. Right now we should be covered in ice, or melting from the heat, or something nasty that man caused because of his profligate living behavior.
Well now you've got the Jesuit-administered education system propagandist professors telling the new young socialist-minded Ivy Leaguers running shakedown syndicates like Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress telling people like peppy actress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to say things like "If we don't address climate change with radical solutions we'll all be dead within twelve years."
The fact that conservative media personnel yuck it up about it all is part of the game. They are just as much the fools for being a part of Cain's legacy to see that his autocratic hegemony is running along exceedingly smoothly, as much as the Catholicized nation is duped left and right to make it all so ugly.
Such is the activity of April Fools' Day -- every day.
The main thrust of all the climate alarmism is to keep human sacrifice alive and well by drawing attention away from the two main conservation items that are quite veritable: (1) the pollution that kills people directly and (2) the gruesome tyrannies in countries that won't properly manage how and where they have people dwelling so naturally occurring natural disasters don't incur so many casualties.
Regarding the first, if you want to do things like cleaning out the plastics from the oceans -- or even better preventing them all together -- then sign me up. If you want to talk about establishing and maintaining wildlife refuges to protect endangered animals -- I'm all in. I'm even on board with reasonable and as much as scientists and engineers can make it efficient (and clean!) green energy alternatives that make it a bit more healthy for us all to breathe the air -- great!
Regarding the second, there is a truth among truths and that is this: natural disasters happen. And a key part of that truth is that people will die no matter what anyone does. Jesus even said about this truth, in the 13th chapter of Luke, essentially, "Yes, I know, people will die in very grievous events. So what about you? If you haven't repented and come to terms with your own mortality in the sense that you'll spend eternity in Heaven or in Hell, then what are you asking Me about it for?" For those who object to my treating Scripture this way, go ahead and read it for yourself, no worries.
If we actually managed our resources well because we actually cared about people, in whatever country there is out there, then we could actually do some things to keep some people from dying unnecessarily as a result of those disasters.
But that requires a lot of intelligence, hard work, and most importantly prayerful attention to carrying out God's purposes in His ways.
Climate change alarmist policies? Perfectly fine for Cain's legacy to sustain human sacrifice on a grand scale. Perfectly fine for his agents to pontificate about how damn-well great they are at being fine, fine individuals. Perfectly fine for them to manage the calcified sinfulness of a reprobate population by pushing them to feel like proudly wholesome folks outside the mercy and grace of God.
It is all perfectly fine for all of that. It is all arranged as a legitimate way the holders of Cain's legacy of spectacular city-building discharges their authoritative duties.
But none of it does a lick of good for the climate. Not a single carbon footprint nodule from anybody has the slightest impact on the climate -- unless of course everyone somehow, someway manages to chop down every tree on the planet. But because there are estimated to be more trees -- those extraordinarily powerful climate regulators we all naturally enjoy -- on earth than there are stars in the galaxy, that number is in the trillions by the way, we really have nothing to worry about.
Sure we can all nuke ourselves, but then God still predicts that kind of thing happening on the last day anyway. As for now? As to whether or not you drive 80 miles to grandmother's house or fly the 400 miles to see your brother's wedding? Even multiply all that by a few million so we can all do that?
Doesn't have the slightest effect.
Oh I'll get the whole "But we have x number of scientists on our side!" I can just say "Ha! I've got y number of scientists on MY side!" "Your momma!" "Well YOUR momma!" "Well your MOMMA'S momma!" "And your momma INFINITY!..."
And so it goes. ::Sigh...::
The thing I have in my favor, and you may have it too! -- it isn't just mine! -- is Scripture. Sure many of the most vocal scientists are expertly trained as atheists by their beloved Jesuit universities, steeped in Epicurean philosophy -- I got that. I know they just slough off Scripture as fairy tale stuff -- but hey, I didn't say there wasn't a day like today to fully celebrate that mentality. Here's to the fool! Makes for great entertainment sometimes, it does.
But for those who hunger after righteousness, you can read Scripture and find a Savior who is willing to grab your hand with His nail-scarred one, pull you from the cesspool of folly some of which is the rabid climate change alarmism, and gently draw you into insightful understanding -- and from there, actually love the ones you may wish to genuinely help.
That starts with acknowledging the truth about what is actually going on and vibrantly grasping that Jesus -- the One who created the whole thing to begin with -- once said, "Look at those flowers, God spins them so beautifully. Look at the birds of the air, they get fed just fine. And here you are worrying as if God doesn't care about you." Sorry, again, my rendering. That's in the sixth chapter of Matthew, by the way, go ahead and check that out for the most accuracy, that's cool.
Seems to me we're good with the planet. Can we mess it up for some people by polluting or not caring for animals and habitats and such as we should? Sure. Can our potentates not do more of what they should to have rules in place for how and where some of us reside? Sure, but the only way to address those things so we actually succeed is to love people Jesus's way, not exploit people Cain's way.
So yeah, I like today, it's a great day of celebration of the worst folly. Let's do that!
Just so we can plainly see it for what it is -- that's a very good thing.
Then maybe more people will turn 180 degrees the other way and enter the Kingdom.

What has been happening behind the scenes may also help explain why she is so vicious.
See, this webzine ministry commitment has always been to follow not as much the money but rather the handlers, that is, those who really work the ones most visibly shoved out in the mainstream to vibrantly sustain Cain's legacy. It is a bit more of a task to look beyond them to their handlers, but it can be done. Ultimately you'll always get to those doing work in the Society of Jesus, composed of the authorized World Operatives using seductive ruses and hypnotic compulsions to shape the sentiments of those who require their services.
This brand spankin' new Congresswoman, who but a year ago was tending bar, has been able to brazenly threaten recalcitrant fellow party members with expulsion through calculated 2020 primary election challenges -- oh my. How did she suddenly get this massive amount of sway? It isn't enough that the New York Times is showcasing her as the next Martin Luther King Jr -- even her most ardent fans know better.
No, the secret is in the identity of her main handler. His present occupation is this woman's chief of staff -- already we know that he is the AOC Whisperer... every powerful person's chief of staff is one. He is a Harvard-educated tech genius who is already a millionaire from doing tech stuff -- it is through more and more advanced communication technology augmenting the dreck pouring through social media and other such information transfer platforms into the souls of young people today that make the devil's work today so much easier. They are being devoured by the millions, and people like this handler get filthy rich in the discarded offal. My latest webzine piece gets into this a bit more.
We also find that this gentlemen has been instrumental in propelling a number of mass web media political enterprises all about installing full socialism and racialism into the American mainstream. Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress are two notable ones. Each one is committed to using ferocious pressure tactics to gain compliance to the most radical leftist agenda items in any and all legislative offices.
The Big Troll is all about the propaganda and pressure to get enough attention to these exciting items of mass destruction that no matter how much they are sneered and shouted at, they will ultimately be embraced -- much because detractors will be made to look like bigoted buck-toothed Neanderthals. I don't know, I just happened to see the most industrious Bolsheviks in the Russian legislature turning the tide on behalf of the intrepid Lenin, eventually, establishing a lasting socialist paradise for all peoples everywhere.
Please do not misunderstand what I'm saying here. This blog post may seem like yet another raging protestation among the livid conservative voices. Nah. That stuff is really pointless, as incisively instructive as some of it is. All that plap is just part of the game. As I mentioned in my last post for those not quite as keen on the uptake, the United States of America is already socialist and racialist as all get-out. Indeed this is one reason The New Socialists are so bold -- they know who it is from whom they get their charges. They look at the American landscape and already see nauseatingly obsequious politicians bending waaay over to ensure the socialist paradise is splendidly erected here.
Think Social Security and Medicare is a good thing? You may! Most elderly people do, millions of them. Sorry, but these two budget busters are the most socialist programs you could ever get. "Oh but we put money into it when we worked!" Yeah, sure. That doesn't change the fact that it is still fully, wholly, wickedly socialist. Any and all other government transfer payment programs from food stamps for the lowest-income earners to the corporate subsidies for the highest-wealth hoarders are so no matter how much you think any of them are ever-so special.
All are still socialist through-and-through.
Here's the thing.
That's the way Cain's agency works.
Don't fight it. Don't screech about it. Don't get all hot and bothered about it.
It is precisely what it is supposed to be by virtue of God's ordination declared somewhere between six-to-ten millennia ago. You can read about it in the best history book of all, the Bible, right there in the fourth chapter of Genesis. Cain was the first human sacrificer and as such God sent him out to build a city in which he could do grand works of human sacrifice for the expressed purpose of being his brother's keeper. Look at most cities today -- how about those just in the United States. Murder, sexual assault, drug overdoses among so many other devastating crimes never stop ravaging those places -- looks like human sacrifice to me.
What perfect opportunities for great beaming knights to come to the rescue -- Cain is fully on board with getting brand new congresspersons and democracy-minded justice-warriors in place to do more human sacrifice for the glorious cause of equality and fraternity and liberty and... hmm, that sounds kind of like what they bellowed before they started chopping off people's heads in France one time... hmm, not sure, but it sounds like it.
This is what the holders of Cain's legacy do.
AOC and her handlers are doing fine work, they are.
Don't want to be in and around all that?
There is one thing you can do.
That's it. Only one, and if you've lived your life being indoctrinated by Cain's mandarins from any and all levels of the teaching hegemony, you may struggle with grasping what that is, but I'll share it with you anyway.
Please, careful with what you do with Him. You may certainly come to Him in humility offering a brief sincere prayer. But many think they've got Him when they only have a straw-man Jesus. There are so many. Why do you think the ones who fabricate them call their order the Society of Jesus? Don't fret, it's their legitimate job, give them credit for doing it well.
But if you want to come to The Original, you'll find a totally different world, indeed it is a Kingdom. There you will find deliverance and forgiveness. Mercy and forbearance. Gentleness and joy.
Agape like you've never know, and the rapturous freedom from the oppressive World you've allowed to contaminate everything good you'd love to enjoy.
Yes, it is fun to rage and rail and holler and rage some more whichever side of the culture war you enlist to raise your blood pressure and bring you an early death.
Might be good to have The Savior when that happens.
Friday, March 01, 2019
The real issue is these far-reaching recommendations come from powerful people mostly steeped in the richest Epicureanist philosophy -- that there is no God, that the material is all there is, that if you do believe in some divine being that's cool if it makes you happy but don't go around saying it's true or you'll be painfully marginalized -- and because these ideas come from them...

"We have no king but Caesar."
Recently the U.S. Senate proposed a post-birth infant protection bill. "Committing infanticide is against the law" it pretty much says. It seems to have come forward after a governor in a state that pretty much allows abortion through all nine months of a pregnancy waffled about what to do if a partial-birth abortion failed and the baby was born alive. Should the parents be consulted about whether or not to keep the infant alive or utilize the pillow?
When the Senate holds a "unanimous consent" vote, all that has to happen for the resolution to pass is for no one to object. You don't even have to go on the record, as a Senator you just don't have to say anything and the thing goes right on through. Yeah, huh. Cain's domain. Pretty nasty.
Well, most Senators thought this would be a slam dunk. Who in their right mind would object to something enshrined into official federal ordinance that would protect a baby after it completes passage through the birth canal? Who?
U.S. Senator from Washington Patty Murray did. Here is the text of her exact reasoning.
"This is a gross misrepresentation of the actual language of the bill that is being asked to be considered and, therefore, I object." Apparently there was also some talk about her reminding colleagues that there are already anti-infanticide laws in the books.
Well done, Ms. Murray, and please, I'm not being facetious.
Well done. You are following your due diligence in being a faithful Catholicist carrying out your sworn duty of boldly highlighting the merits of human sacrifice that occur on a regular basis and valiantly upholding its fully enabled service for all who wish to partake in it.
From the information I've seen in her curriculum vitae, Patty Murray is a devout Roman Catholic. Whether practicing or not, she is devout enough or she wouldn't have courageously done this in the Senate.
If she is an ordained government official in the service of Cain's legacy, then we must take her words seriously as authoritative, as much dissembling as she may have employed. For you see the bill is indeed a gross representation. These politicians are only putting this forward to gain political points, especially before a Catholicized populace who they believe would overwhelmingly favor this. If there are already anti-infanticide laws in place, why have this one?
The truth is this would only serve to make illegal murder after birth, if it would even do that considering all the equivocation and casuistry that would be employed to confuse things. And since murder is perfectly acceptable before birth, why would it matter if it were illegal after birth? In fact, while there are pretty standard laws against murder, they don't really matter much since murder is allowed in millions of different instances anyway, before birth, after birth, years after birth, whenever.
Benjamin Franklin once said, "Nine of every ten men are suicides." What he meant is that men (and women!) live in such benighted states that they are all about killing or being killed, and since the trauma of killing may be too difficult it is best to just numb the pain even if you kill yourself. Murders and suicides are happening all the time, all over the place. I'd go into it all here -- there is a lot! -- but I put together a helpful web page with it all. I invite you to look over it, right here, please.
It is all just one, huge, massive human sacrifice orgy.
Why misrepresent that with a pitifully inadequate anti-infanticide bill in the legislature? Touche, Patty Murray.
The scathing thing is that an anti-infanticide bill directs attention away from the fact that there should be no abortions whatsoever, ever, at any time. What a wretchedly pathetically gruesome country we live in when any legislature passes a bill limiting abortions to, say, 12 weeks into the pregnancy. So many think that's great, but all such a provision does is merely declare that abortions up to 12 weeks are perfectly fine! Many are great with fetal pain laws -- what? What difference does that make? If you murder a preborn child before they feel it does that make it better?
Many say it matters when you pass through the birth canal. Why? Who said? Here's the thing, if you say the deciding point is up to 12 weeks, what makes that different from two seconds before the full 12 weeks are up? Or two seconds before that? Or 57 hours before that? Or at any time 12 weeks before that? Or after that?
No, Patty Murray is quite an honest individual. She admits in so many words that, yes, our laws pretty much permit murder from conception to death from old age. As a Roman Catholic she is an expert in the law, which is terrific. There should be so many Catholics in government because they are experts in administering Cain's legacy to manage the sin of a reprobate populace who'd otherwise wipe each other off the face of the earth without it. The murderous activity still happens, people are desperate to commit acts of human sacrifice against one another -- they can't help it.
You get with The Self-Sacrificer.
There are only two ways to engage in anything anywhere anyhow: The World and the Kingdom. Patty Murray, the U.S. Senate, and a good wholesome religious but reprobate society of other-sacrificers thrive in the World, and the System pounds away against them as it must.
Those who recognize it for what it is may turn from it, 180 degrees in the other direction and light years distance away from all that to the Kingdom, and to the One who still closely extends His scarred hands and feet to bring genuine healing and bountiful salvation to those who ask Him to do so, and He can because
He's already made the sacrifice.
Think you're with Him when you're convinced you're rabidly pro-life? Maybe, not my call. But I already posted some thoughts about that in my last blog entry, from a few days ago. I invite you to read that one too.
Spend a little time in prayer, to Him. Be honest and truthful with Him, He'll hear, He'll be good, He'll answer you in phenomenally miraculous ways. Just watch.
Then there'd be mercy poured out on not just those babies, but on the mothers and fathers of those babies, on all who feel in some roundabout way that murders must happen to anyone anywhere for whatever rationalization can be formed.
"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law."

"Apart from Me you can do nothing."
These words are there quite prominently in the 15th chapter of John's gospel. Around them is an entire treatise about how much Jesus is it. He's the One. Nothing else matters. Have Him and you have everything and can do anything. Don't have Him and you're squat. No matter how much you're into anything else, it is utterly, contemptibly worthless.
I'd add that it is even worse if you are into another Jesus. The harrowing thing about that is there are so many. It is just as viscerally sorrowful that so so very many believe that as long as someone says they believe in a Jesus then we can all gleefully consider being on the same page crusading for good wholesome things out there.
Recently over at the The Federalist the individual with the pseudonym Bill Kilgore wrote an extraordinarily sobering assessment of the pro-life movement. He truly said nothing much more than it is worthless. Many many many people think it is something, when really, let's face it: What is it? The most stunning factual bit of information he shared that demonstrates this truth was this:
"Approximately took place in the United States in 2017—down from approximately in 2016 and in 2015. Except it isn’t clear that this shift by 30,000 babies is a result of the pro-life movement or if it is just because people are no longer bothering to get pregnant. Thirty thousand babies saved is something in which to rejoice, but it pales in comparison to 882,000 killed.”
We're supposed to think we're really doing anything when 882,000 babies are murdered every year.
Thing is, I know why we're not doing anything. It is something I myself wrote about in my webzine 12 years ago. I did so here, and also here. I'd venture to say there are a few others who did see and now see what I saw, who sees what Mr. Kilgore sees, but it doesn't seem there are very many.
There are simply too many Jesuses hypnotically entrancing so many people.
Even Mr. Kilgore and the folks at The Federalist are so entranced. You can see it in his piece. Look at how impotent we are, people, he says, we're really accomplishing little, he says. And all he can ultimately say is...
How? Why? I'm mystified.
I'm not. I'm not because of things like Maureen Mullarkey's piece in The Federalist, "The Catholic Scandal is More About Power Than About Sex" (September 4 2018). Mullarkey deftly sees what's going on, much like Kilgore does, much like many at The Federalist, but they can't get it because they are just like most of the populace, hypnotically entranced by their devotion to Cain's legacy.
They are intractably Catholicist.
This means they can't see the difference between Rome's World System of secular governance -- the Roman Catholic Church the ecclesiastical branch of this potentate -- and the Kingdom held in the embrace of Jesus Christ of Scripture with the penetrating message of truth and grace and salvation once delivered to the saints.
The latter is light years from Rome.
About a third of the way through her piece Mullarkey writes this.
"The Eucharist is my life's blood; I am wedded to the Mass and the sacraments. From that standpoint, the rest is merely the way of the world. On the Potomac or the Tiber, a swamp is a swamp. Triumphalist emphasis on the church as a perfect society fails to admit that the church is always a sinful one."The devil clearly has a mighty grip on Mullarkey, yet she's convinced she's a true believer. Well, she is, but for Rome's overarching duty of ruthless law enforcement. She thinks she is fighting the righteous crusade for Christ against what Augustine called "The City of Man" wherever it festers, when she is merely doing Cain's work of rebelling against the Institution forcing Cain's hand in using seven-fold power against her.
The millions, even billions, who feel and think and behave as she does...
Please note I'm saying nothing against the legitimate devotion of such individuals. They have yet to find whole freedom in Christ, so their allegiance is justifiably regarded as calcified as it may be. Who am I to question their dire necessities. In one brief paragraph Mullarkey quite candidly confesses that she is spiritually sold out to the Institution, one that is perpetually "a swamp," and "always a sinful one."
What then of the preborn children? Hundreds of thousands of them... In horrific peril right now...
Ever really look at the March-for-Life? That event everyone screeches the media give short shrift every weekend around January 22nd when they hold it? The one where indeed tens of thousands of people zealously rally in Washington D.C. to bring attention to the slaughter that is abortion? You know that one?
Look at the photographs of the participants, at least that's not hard to do. Look at them, and look for all the rosaries, all the crucifixes, all the signs with images of the pope or some saint or Mary quite often depicted as the Lady of Guadalupe.
All of it, every bit of that stuff, comes straight from Hell. It doesn't matter that there are a gazillion Catholics -- showcasing the strength-in-numbers feature of the System's machinations -- it doesn't make it any less demonic. All the idolatry, all the insanely unbiblical practices, all the spiritually lethal devotions -- all of it firmly the devil's domain.
And yet, the more evangelically-minded March-for-Life participants for the most part shrug, even beam that everyone is together "dwelling in unity" and trying to achieve the same purpose -- save the unborn! What they don't understand is that the Roman Catholic Church is a critical component of all the things that make abortion so prominent. Yes, it is true, the Catholic Church contributes to making abortions happen.
Part of that is simply to have some rotten thing out there crushing the souls of so many people in society for the purpose of moving Catholic or Catholicist leaders to declare how much they are against that bad thing so they'll generate more sympathy for or even membership in the Institution. And the "Institution" does not even have to be a Roman Catholic church at all -- it can be any secular governing entity including any Protestant-oriented body that is tied to Rome through its contractual 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit status.

My own epiphany occurred on a very nice Saturday morning -- March 9th, 2002. I too was an enthusiastic participant in our local "Walk For Life." About a hundred or so of us would stroll for about a mile, maybe two, deliberately making our way past the abortion clinic, just engaging in the whole supporting all things pro-life activities. Until, as you read my story, you'll see, the light started to go on.
This is a fully Catholicist operation.
We were all being played like the finest Stradivarius violins. All of it, all of it just another sick, filthy, grotesque cog in the vast racket that is the World System largely governed by Rome. Still don't think so? Did you even read Kilgore's piece? Did you even notice that around 900,000 babies were still murdered every single year since I proudly went on that Walk-For-Life event? Just as many for each of the years before that?
Just as many for each of the years from this point forward as long as we don't get that we're so wretchedly Catholicist?
Do you not weep buckets as I do right now?
Well, I know not many people will read a piddle little blog like this one. I've been doing this for 14 years now, and it doesn't seem like much is happening. I am very sad about that. Doesn't even have to be me, I don't care about me.
But who is speaking up about Rome and what it is, and then able to speak for the babies so they will actually be saved?
Really? Actually? Truly?
Or are you just someone who dismisses this? Maybe, maybe just too far from the Kingdom to comprehend. That's what happened with Cain, and that's the way it is for all who follow him. He was sent out of God's presence -- so I do understand why there are billions who just - can't - get - it.
Please know that I myself am not railing against or challenging the legitimacy of Cain's legacy. God did indeed send Cain away to build a city to manage the evils of a populace who refused to get it. There's a large imposing Roman Catholic edifice right in the middle of it all for effect.
You can get it, however, if you do just what many did there at the very end of the fourth chapter of Genesis: "Call on the name of the Lord." I do truly believe if you do that you'll understand.
Here, I'll help. This isn't my thinking, mind you, please -- I'm not so smart. But I have been paying attention, and here're the way things are (it is from this webzine writing I did a number of years ago):
There is one, single, solitary, exclusive solution to all of this.
It is Him.
Thuh end -- nothing else.
Shall I repeat His own words? I think I must.
"Apart from Me you can do nothing."
I don't know how unequivocally categorical that can be. I don't know how much more clear it is.
Nothing means nothing.
Of course there is so much more that goes with Him. He offers the Kingdom, that's a lot of stuff.
It definitely includes all the beautiful, bountiful tools needed to save babies --
Really. Actually. Truly.
I invite you to look through my webzine. You'll see much more of what I'm sharing here. I hope you look around and find Him. That's the main thing, thanks.
I must add this extra note. The 882,000 figure is for abortions just in the U.S. After completing this post I looked up the number worldwide, and the World Health Organization -- not a biased religious outfit by any means! -- estimates that conservatively 40 million abortions occur each year worldwide. My God, my God, are there just that many whose hearts are not breaking enough to grasp any of this?...
