Clergy Response Teams and Ravenous Wolves in Sheep-Drag

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

We know from Ephesians 6:12 that ultimately we’re not struggling against flesh and blood, but against a spiritual enemy. However, your spiritual enemy usually operates through people.

We see all through the Bible how our enemy uses deception to trap us, as individuals, as nations, and one day all who dwell on the Earth.

In fact, deception will only get stronger as we approach the end of this age.

Mark 13:22 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform signs and wonders, to lead astray, if possible, the elect. 23 But be on guard; I have told you all things beforehand.

Even the Elect would be deceived—if that were possible. That tells you that the most intelligent, perceptive, discerning people who ever lived would fall for the coming deception…if they don’t have the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Himself warned us that He brings division, not peace. When you love and follow the truth, enemies will arise among your very friends and family members.

Don’t take the word “enemy” lightly. We were warned that they’ll be willing to have you put to death. (Mark 13:12).

When mass insanity (evil) grips the world, so that every step is fraught with danger and anyone might betray you at any time, the one person you’re likely to trust is a pastor—especially one from your own church.

1 Timothy 4: 1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, 2 through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared.

Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”

One source of good information on the “Clergy Response Teams” is The Common Sense Show:

On December 31, 2011, Barack Hussein Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law which in addition to allocating $662 billion to the Pentagon also contains a measure which allows U.S. citizens to be taken into custody and held indefinitely without ever being charged with a crime.

Not only can any citizen deemed a threat to “national security interests of the United States,” be held forever without receiving a trial, but the military will be the ones arresting those citizens.

NDAA Section 1022, subsection c allows “(1) Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.”

Revelation 13:9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.

10 “If anyone is to go into captivity,
into captivity they will go.
If anyone is to be killed with the sword,
with the sword they will be killed.”

This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.

Daniel 11:33 These who are wise among the people will teach the masses. However, they will fall by the sword and by the flame, and they will be imprisoned and plundered for some time. 34 When they stumble, they will be granted some help. But many will unite with them deceitfully.

There’s a preacher by the name of Mansfield who was recruited into the CRT, and he blew the whistle on what it’s all about. He learned of the government’s plan to implement forced population relocations.

(If anyone is to go into captivity…)

Family members will be separated from each other and part of the training that the clergy received was how to comfort separated family members.

Pastor Mansfield emphasized that the FEMA/DHS drills were predicated on bioterrorism.

Church leaders were trained to go to homes were people refused to be relocated by the authorities and their immediate job was to convince the reluctant to willingly go to the relocation camps. Ostensibly, this was to be done in lieu of sending in the SWAT teams.

Much of the clergy training focused around this scenario of pastors operating within the forced relocation centers. The main goal of a pastor assigned to a FEMA district was to bring order and encourage compliance with DHS requests.

The pastors were forced to sign non-disclosure agreements. Interestingly, the pastors were told not to quote Scripture.

 

Except for one part.
You can probably guess what it is. We’ll get into it next time.

Who Can You Trust in the Days Ahead?

Since the prophecies of the Messiah’s first coming were fulfilled literally, it is only sensible to believe that the prophecies of His second coming (of which there are more) will also be fulfilled.

Unless God changed His mind. Or He’s not as powerful as He once was. Or His word is just a cosmic prank.

For those who can read the signs of the times, it is obvious that we are on the cusp of a great upheaval, and the world as we know it will soon come to an end. At some point after this great upheaval, the time period Daniel and John wrote so much about will begin. The prophets and Jesus Himself warned extensively about what will happen during this time period.

We were warned in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 that a great apostasy is coming.

Matthew 24:11 “And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. 12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”

Luke 12:51 “Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. 52 For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

54 He also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, ‘A shower is coming.’ And so it happens. 55 And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘There will be scorching heat,’ and it happens. 56 You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?”

Matthew 10:34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36 And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household.”

Mark 13:12 “And brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death. 13 And you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”

Luke 21:16 “You will be delivered up even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and some of you they will put to death.”

I hope, for your sakes, you understand that you can’t trust politicians, the media, the police, the military, etc. But our Lord and the prophets warned us repeatedly that other believers are going to turn on us and betray us, too.

You would think the one person you could trust, when the world is upside down, would be a somebody from your church.

1 Timothy 4: 1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, 2 through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared.

Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”

I’ve recently become aware of something called “Clergy Response Teams.” This is just another trend that is showing us how close we are to the time period the Bible has been warning us about. Certain government agencies have been enticing church leadership into playing the Judas goat for their flocks when the time comes. What is alarming is that a whole lot of church leadership is signing onto the program.

26,000-to-28,000 as of 2006. I plan to cover this subject in some detail in future posts.

Confirmation that America is Doomed, and Why

I was an eye-witness to a discussion that pretty much confirms what a lot of us already knew about the cultural/spiritual tides sweeping the nation known as the United States of America.

An individual in church leadership was given opportunity for political commentary. He began by mentioning that the last five occupants of the White House all received criticism. Reagan was deserving of it, of course, though he wasn’t quite the Antichrist he was portrayed to be among leftists and their useful idiots.

(What was conveniently and predictably ignored was the cross-spectrum improvement of black living standards/financial status during Reagan’s peacetime economic boom; and the decline of same for blacks during Obama’s Emporer-Has-No-Clothes economic train wreck.)

After this attempt at a magnanimous non-partisan monologue, the church leader went on to tell us that the criticism of Obama is so intense that even if he “walked on water” or healed a dying girl covered with tumors, his mean-spirited detractors would still “demonize” him.

I was tempted to ask for evidence to back this up. What great, legal, ethical act has Obama performed that he was criticised for?

If Obama obeyed the law (as he swore to do twice with all the nation as witnesses) and secured the border, I would praise him for that. But he not only refuses to do his job, but he brings suit against a besieged state that tries to protect its own borders in the absence of integrity from Washington.

If Obama kept his promise to cut the national debt in half during his first term, I would have praised him. Instead, he nearly doubled it.

If Obama had demonstrated leadership while the Americans he sent to BenGhazi were under attack, and used the assets at his disposal to rescue them, I would have praised him. Instead he refused to act, skipped all the intelligence briefings, flew off to Vegas, and lied about the whole debacle multiple times. Then lied about the lie he told.

There’s Obamacare and the lies he told to foist that on us (and the lies about the lies after he was proven to be lying). There’s the little matter of getting caught committing treason with the Russians. There’s his utter contempt for the rule of law and the separation of powers that is part of the fundamentals of our government he swore to uphold.

I could go on, but what’s the point? Either your eyes are open, or you’re blinded. As Mark Twain said, it’s a lot easier to deceive someone than convince them they’ve been deceived. The deception is already so powerful, it has all the earmarks of a spiritual “powerful delusion, that they should believe the lie.” (2 Thess. 2:11)

We have become so racially polarized as a nation, that for about 95% of African-Americans, the most important factor is how they believe their own demographic will fare under a particular decision-maker. (Not how they will actually fare, but what they believe.)

With the exception of myself, everyone in the discussion was an echo chamber for the church leader’s assertions. I could have debated against the groupthink. Maybe I could have given the argument of my life. It wouldn’t have mattered.

These were intelligent men. They likely have all the soundbites and talking points memorized. In fact, I know they do–I’ve heard it from them. And it’s not like they lack the ability to reason on every topic. Just certain ones.

It comes down to the simple core issue that almost everyone on both sides overlooks, ignores or denies.

Obama hates America. The evidence is everywhere you look. You don’t try to “fundamentally transform” something you love. Or even like. Or are willing to tolerate. You only fundamentally transform something that is utterly antithetical to what you believe is correct.

And the church leader, and other guys I observed, hate America, too. They’ve been taught by the government schools, Hollywood and the establishment media all their lives: America is evil, racist, etc. and needs to be fundamentally transformed. When Obama (or Clinton or any other politician) strikes another blow that injures America, they see it as a good thing. Just a step or two down from healing a little girl covered with tumors or “walking on water,” I guess.

This struck home during another point of the discussion when the church leader opined that censorship of the Internet is a good thing (yet another illegal dictate Obama happens to be pushing, in the form of “Net Neutrality”).

Here is the operating assumption in microcosm. Freedom is bad. Consolidation of power into the hands of an oligarchy is good. This is what Obama believes. This is what his supporters believe (at least they believe it when Democrats are in power). This is what Marx, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin and Mao believed. It is what the devil himself believes.

The reason given for the advantage of a state-controlled Internet was that teenage boys can watch porn. Clever way to sell it, because who would want to take a position that could be portrayed as supporting pornography for teens?

But again, the ability to reason has been disabled, here. Utterly crucial questions have obviously not been asked: Who is going to decide what gets censored and what doesn’t? Who will the individuals who decide be accountable to? Do you really imagine that this censorship will occur in a fashion that is in any way related to a Biblical worldview?

Once freedom of speech and thought are subject to regulation by the state, the Internet will be as uniformly hostile to Christianity as every other matter controlled by government is becoming. But porn will continue thriving like always. The enemy doesn’t mind sexual sin, at all. It’s quite useful to him, in fact. But independent thought–that is a threat slowing down the march back to Babel.

America is the lynchpin. Global government can’t be achieved with a strong, prosperous, sovereign and free republic here as evidence against the great deception.

The liberty ship is sinking. And a whole lot of people in the Church see it as a victory. I hear them cheering and fiddling all around me.

Wormwood

On one of my pages I shared a hypothesis I’ve had for a few years now that the Russians might build a “dirty” atomic warhead and name it after Chernobyl, or there might be another nuclear disaster, worse than the first, and be called “Chernobyl II” or something. I started thinking this way while reading what Revelation says about the star called Wormwood.

This has not yet been confirmed to my knowledge (and when events are covered up, they are very difficult for normal people to confirm…just sayin’) but there are rumors leaking out about some sort of meltdown at the Zaporizhia nuclear plant in Ukraine. The plant is the largest in Europe, maybe the world (six reactors), according to the report I heard. Somebody hacked the Twitter accounts of two of the bigwigs in charge of the plant and, if the messages are legitimate, it sounds pretty scary. One of those involved referred to it as “another Chernobyl.”

Chernobyl means “wormwood” by the way, and the description in Revelation of the resulting “bitter water” and what it does to people who drink it sounds just like radiation poisoning.

Are Christians Required to Be Wimps? Part 2

There is a perception in the world at large that Christians are intellectually inferior, because most of us are incapable or unwilling to contend for the faith. (Jude 1:3) We fall back on cliches, jingoism and traditional teaching handed down over generations. When the world challenges what we believe, we either figuratively run away or we get defensive and say something to the effect of, “Well I know what I believe is true because of what the Lord has done in my life.”

That may be true, but playing that trump card in the marketplace of ideas is not reasoning (Acts 17:2) with those we are supposed to love. If we are ambassadors for Christ who are supposed to reflect God’s image to the world, then the lost will judge our God (our “religion” as they see it) based on how we represent Him. By choosing to represent the Kingdom as most Christians do, we are telling the world that He is irrational, ignorant, timid, and gullible.

Gullible? Yes, because we let the anti-Christians get away with lies, deception, opinions packaged as fact, circular reasoning, blatant hypocrisy, and rhetorical presumptions which seem intelligent when reduced to soundbites, but crumble under scrutiny. Believers would be held accountable immediately by anti-Christians for anything similar. Christians don’t call them on the carpet or challenge any of this, preferring to remain on the defensive and allow anti-Christian messages to dominate every public forum. Hoping, I guess, that the Gospel will spread by osmosis.

Jesus commanded us to preach the good news to people of every nation, tribe and language. (Matthew 28:19)

How can the Gospel spread when we are immediately shouted down when we try to preach it? How can the Gospel spread when it is drowned under a flood of false teaching? How can the Gospel message compete against fanatic enemies with a whole arsenal of seemingly sound arguments when we don’t have the guts to tear down strongholds of deception with the tools God gave us? How are the lost supposed to hear the message that can set them free?

This scenario is like the 12 spies (Numbers 13) all over again. We aren’t literally facing armies of giants and we aren’t literally going in to conquer real estate promised to the children of Abraham and we aren’t wielding literal swords formed out of metal by human hands. But we have been equipped with spiritual armor and a spiritual sword to wage spiritual warfare against a spiritual enemy who has usurped and occupied the spiritual territory of hearts and minds of people who God loves and doesn’t want to perish. And five out of six believers who have looked over the enemy and the battlefield are too intimidated to march forth. In fact, some even discourage our fellow believers from marching!

Jesus wouldn’t have given us the Great Commission if it was impossible to carry out. He’s given us the Holy Spirit to empower us for the mission. “We should go up and take possession of the land, brothers, for we can certainly do it.”

This post is already getting long, so I’ll begin addressing some of our obstacles in detail next time. Just keep these assurances in mind:

  • Nothing is impossible for God. (Mark 10:27, Luke 18:27)
  • If God is for us, who can stand against us? (Romans 8:31)

Are Christians Required to Be Wimps?

Believe what you wish about whether or not the United States of America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles; but there’s no denying that anti-Christian policy and propaganda have never been as bad as they are now, in the history of the nation.

The reason for this; for the decline of the republic; the collapse of our economy; the destruction of the nuclear family; and racial strife are all the same: evil prospers when good men do nothing. And for too long good men have done nothing.

This is one of the memes being spread on social media. Do you have the guts or the knowledge to challenge this kind of attack on the faith?

One aspect of that is our lack of representation in the marketplace of ideas. The enemy’s spokesmen have been relentlessly using the freedom of speech granted them to peddle and regurgitate all manner of deception, while the church refuses to contend for the faith. When Christians don’t surrender the field without any resistance whatsoever, they certainly will once the debate gets intense. In either case, the enemy is rewarded with a monopoly on the spread of ideas.

Christians retreat back to their church buildings and other enclaves–the only places they feel safe to speak the truth. But the enemy has infiltrated there, too.

The enemy has perverted Thomas Jefferson’s defense of the First Amendment into meaning that Christians are not allowed to participate in politics or public discourse like everyone else. And even Christians are believing it, now.

Here are a few reasons Christians are approaching spiritual warfare the way the French Army conducted warfare in 1940:

  • Belief that “turn the other cheek” countermands “contend for the faith.” (Jude 1:3)
  • Laziness.
  • Ignorance–we haven’t prepared to give an answer for the hope we have. (1 Peter 3:15)
  • Belief that “love” means not bursting bubbles or challenging foolish ideas.
  • Belief that “love” means we can’t call out hypocrisy and evil the way Jesus did.
  • Cowardice.
  • Lack of zeal for our Lord and the truth.

 

This is precisely the worst point in history for the saints to drop our sword and flee from battle. I hope to elaborate on this problem, and suggest solutions, in posts to come.

African-Americans: Conspired Against or Conspirators?

I’ve been made sick of the whole race topic in the last few years. But no matter how much I don’t want to deal with it, it won’t go away. It’s not just on TV anymore; there’s no escape from it. Not at work; not at home; not in the Church.

So be it.

I’ve come to a decision. The people making their opinions known about this issue are ostensibly adults, so I’m gonna treat them like grown-ups. That means I’m not gonna take the pains to pussyfoot around and sugar-coat everything to avoid offending them. Rather I should say I’m going to fight against my cultural programming to do so.

One day we will answer to a God who created everyone of every race, ethnicity and language, and He’s not going to accept skin color and Victim Status as excuses for our conduct. Thank God believers are covered by the blood; but we’re also told we’ll be held accountable for every idle/careless word we utter (Matthew 12:36).

So there’s no misunderstanding here, I’ll put some disclaimers up front.

First of all, I watched the Eric Garner video and from what I can see, the man was murdered. Every cop who dog-piled on him should be locked up for the rest of their lives. In a constitutional republic not undergoing “fundamental transformation” where public servants still abided by the rule of law, that is exactly what would happen. Unfortunately, cops are drunk on undelegated power and commit crimes like this with increasing frequency. Judges look the other way and use any excuse possible to rule in favor of the one with the badge. And we the people let them get away with it. When one of us raises too much of a stink about our transformation into a police state, he is dismissed as a crackpot or demonized as a potential domestic terrorist.

Secondly, Michael brown stealing cigars and pushing the proprietor of a convenience store around does not justify shooting an unarmed man. I wasn’t invited to sit in with the grand jury, so unlike others I won’t pretend to know what evidence was presented or which juror voted which way and what color they were. I also won’t pretend to have the ability to read the mind of the cops involved in either incident. Maybe they hold racist attitudes. Based on my dealings with cops, I suspect most of them do. It would not surprise me if every one of those cops on the video from New York are flaming bigots.

However, in the hype and fever of emotions, a whole lot of wild accusations are being spewed about, accepted as fact without question, imbellished and passed on faster than a speeding airborne virus. To challenge any of these statements gets the Race Card or Victim Status Card waved in our face, and probably accusations of racism, ignorance and white privilege.

I acknowledge that there are exceptions to every generality. Thank God for that. But I’m not addressing the exception or the minority attitudes/opinions here. I’m addressing the zeitgeist at large.

Furthermore, this post is written to the black community in America, including those who self-identify as Christian. If it’s acceptable to make generalized blanket statements like “America is racist” then you should have no problem with me addressing your entire demographic collectively. Especially since, unlike America, 95% of you are in ideological lock-step with each other, as proven every election cycle.

From my experience I have little hope that you’ll read this entire post when you realize it doesn’t fit with your preconceived assumptions. But I’m gonna take the trouble anyway.

One of the popular memes in the wake of these Grand Jury decisions is to the effect that this proves that the Right Wing Boogeyman has genocidal ambitions toward the black population of the USA.

In reality you’re preempting any supposed desire for genocide by attempting collective suicide–by killing each other in the streets, and at the abortion clinic. Founder of Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger, the Nazi (that’s right, a National Socialist just like Hitler and Goebels), believed in eugenics as a way to “purify” the gene pool. By sacrificing your offspring on the Altar of Convenience, you are killing yourselves off just as she hoped you would. And you see the abortion industry as a good thing. At least you vote that way. You embrace as friends those who are assisting your suicide.

Nor is the Right Wing Boogeyman conspiring to drive you back into slavery. You’re voluntarily staying on the Ghetto Plantation. Modern servitude doesn’t entail picking cotton; it means voting Democrat (multiple times per election where voter ID is not required) to keep your entitlements growing. And 95% of you do. How ’bout that: the same guys are your slave masters 150 years later. The difference is this time they’ve got you convinced it’s for your own good. The black family has been destroyed over the last half century thanks to socialist (“liberal,” “progressive,” etc.) policies, but you maintain your slavish support of them because the TV tells you they’re looking out for your interests; and that their opponents, the Right Wing Boogeymen, are trying to oppress you. It must be true because you hear the same story everywhere. After all, majority opinion is always the best bandwagon to jump on…just like in Noah’s day, right?

Some of you have escaped the Ghetto Plantation by hard work, clever business strategies, and by taking advantage of the unique opportunities available to you in America. Thank God for that. But you’re still devoted to the Plantation Master and you still wave your Victim Status banner to show the world your allegiance. You may call yourself a Christian, but you’ll vote for Klansmen (like Robert Byrd), Muslims and God-hating Marxists (who, incidentally, increase the economic disparity suffered by your demographic) every time, without question, because skin color. Because Victim Status. Because oppression.

When incidents like the murder of Eric Garner and the recent events in Ferguson are hyped by your trusted svengalis, it never fails to provoke knee-jerk memes like “America is racist!” And evidently it is perfectly acceptable to your uncircumcised hearts to spread lies in order to keep these memes going.

Multiple witnesses in Ferguson claimed to have witnessed the shooting, and from them spawned the horrifying tales of how Michael Brown was shot in the back while fleeing with his hands raised in surrender. Or he was on his knees with his hands raised when assassinated. The witnesses against “Racist America” couldn’t get their stories straight, and often contradicted each other, but that didn’t matter to to the Victim Status Addicts (VSAs) and “social justice warriors” (SJWs) as long as whatever version supported the “America is racist” meme. I’ve personally encountered VSAs who parroted these testimonies without bothering to check any facts, willing to slander and/or libel anyone with the audacity to ask for substantiation. Some of these VSAs identify themselves as Christians.

One VSA claimed to have seen video footage of Darren Wilson gunning down Michael Brown “in cold blood.” On my second request to see this alleged video, the story changed to this individual having only seen a picture of Wilson standing over Brown’s body. They then denied ever having made the initial claim, and when called out on the lie threw a tantrum and spouted off a number of assertions (leaving no time for response) and promptly left the scene, claiming the matter settled once and for all. The one assertion I heard clearly was that Darren Wilson had admitted to killing Michael Brown in cold blood. (That’s quite a conspiracy going on, for him to have confessed to murder and still not have to stand trial.)

Another story was told about the surveillance video of Brown robbing the convenience store–that the complete video shows that somebody other than Michael Brown stole the Swisher Sweets, and the “real thief” is the guy Brown pushed on his way out of the store. Furthermore, I was told, the store owner claimed that Brown was innocent. This sounded a little too convenient to me, and almost like something from a cheesey episode of Arrow. But then I’d only seen a short clip of the video, and couldn’t definitely say this was impossible. Again my request for substantiation was ignored. I was just supposed to accept this version of events without question and jump on the “America is racist” bandwagon.

So I found the complete video, and here it is:

Interesting that those who have claimed to watch this video (and tell stories like the one I shared above) refuse to watch this video when given a chance. Because it’s just part of Whitey’s conspiracy to bring you down, see. White folks must have hired actors and staged this whole thing.

During all the hysteria surrounding the Ferguson Grand Jury, another story was spread around on social media and the VSAs latched onto it immediately–about Timberland Boots’ CEO who supposedly revealed his true racist colors:

“They’re work boots and let’s be honest. ‘They’ don’t like to work” Said Timberland’s new appointment in a shocking reveal during a press conference. “We started this company with a vision. To make the best damn boot that you can wear from the construction yard to the nearest Klan meeting without sacrificing fashion” Said John Kilpins Senior Marketing VP of the Timberland boot brand.

This started out as a gag on a satirical site, but was quickly turned into a hoax by SJWs looking for something–any fuel to throw on the “America is racist” fire. You bought it hook, line and sinker, though you could have discovered the truth with minimal effort (there’s a disclaimer on the satirical site where this story was originally posted). During a press conference this guy supposedly says the vision of his company is to have his boots worn to Klan meetings and you see nothing suspicious there? Where is your discernment, Christian? And yet I was called naive because I just don’t understand how “America is racist.” I’m blinded by my “white privelege.” (More on that later.)

The only people who can get away with displaying that kind of racism are Democrats.

When the Ferguson witnesses were confronted with forensic evidence proving their testimony false, they admitted fabricating their stories. Others who weren’t even there repeated the fabrications they’d heard, sometimes embellishing them, as if they themselves were witnesses. And they maintained their perjury until exposed as liars by the evidence and self-contradictory testimony. This phenomenon is at epidemic proportions in the black community. I’m seeing it in the news, on all the mainstream social networks, and up close from people I know.

Here’s an excerpt from a Daily Mail story:

Another witness had told the FBI after the shooting that he saw Wilson shoot Brown in the back and then stand over his prone body to finish him off.

But in his grand jury testimony, this witness, acknowledged that he had not seen that part of the shooting, and that what he told the FBI was ‘based on me being where I’m from, and that can be the only assumption that I have.’

TRANSLATION: “I’m black; he’s not, so I’m the victim and he’s the oppressor and that gives me the right to lie about something I didn’t even see.”

This individual is trying to get somebody convicted of MURDER. I wish this epidemic of bearing false witness was limited to the neighborhood in Ferguson; or even the state of Missouri; or at least to the heathens. But it’s not, by a long shot.

This is the pattern I keep seeing any time these racially-charged hype-fests go viral: the VSA doesn’t care enough about truth to bother using the slightest discernment or checking the facts. All they want to know is who was black, who was white, and their minds are made up, permanently. And when caught lying notice the self-righteous attitude and complete lack of remorse or even embarrassment. In personal encounters, when called out on their false witness, these perpetrators try to turn it around on me, as if I am somehow at fault.

I just can’t possibly ever understand, I’m told, because I’m blinded by my white privilege.

That same white privilege that gets less qualified candidates hired for a job instead of me? Because racial discrimination in hiring is wrong…except when the discrimination works in YOUR favor. Then it should be institutionalized and given a lofty name like “Affirmative Action.”

That white privelege?

Or maybe you mean when I worked to put myself through college. When I went to the financial aid office every quarter to check on scholarships, I found I qualified for several full-tuition deals. Oh, wait, no I didn’t qualify, because I was the wrong race and gender.

That white privilege?

Going to a junior high and high school where my demographic was in the minority, I suffered all the discrimination you see depicted on TV dramas, up to and including violent assault. But when you see it on TV, the victim never looks like me. Never will, either–not because it’s unique, as the knee-jerk assumptions purport, but because it doesn’t fit the “America is racist” meme or validate your Victim Narrative.

That white privilege?

Any time this comes up with a particular Victim Status Addict, I’m told my examples (these and others) are merely isolated incidents and therefore I still can’t ever hope to understand racial discrimination.

Here are some more “isolated incidents,” tabulated from the National Crime Victimization Survey:

In 2010 there were 62,593 black victims of white violent crimes.

The same year there were 320,082 black-on-white violent crimes.

That differential is bad enough. It appears that whites are victims of blacks five times more than blacks are victims of whites. At least it would be 5X if the respective populations were equal.

But when you consider that in 2010 the black population was 38 million and the white population was 197 million, then you understand that the disparity is actually a staggering 25X more black-on-white violent crime.

There were 13,000 black-on-white rapes, and 39,000 black-on-white violent robberies. How many times did whites return the favor with those same specific crimes? Let’s just say the score is 13,000X and 39,000X less, respectively.

So who is the victim of who, here? And where is your outrage?

Yeah, I know: some white American Racist cooked those numbers after staging the fake surveillance video of Michael Brown. You don’t have to look at any evidence or check any facts–you just know because skin color. Because Victim Status. Because oppression. Maybe you should demonstrate your thirst for justice by stealing a flat screen TV and trying to burn down somebody’s store.

Maybe you should continue to bear false witness, then throw a fit when caught in a lie. Then turn tail and flee, firing desperate verbal parting shots in between claiming victory in your one-sided Racial Supremacy Debate.

We were commanded not to bear false witness. We were commanded not to covet. So much for the Democratic Party.

In Phillipians 2:3 we’re told to count others more important than ourselves. It is human nature to do the opposite, but most of us are expected to grow up some day and bring our egos under control. By the behavior of black churchgoers, you’d think God had instituted Affirmative Action in regards to His commands.

So many of you are doing this, it’s hard not to suspect there’s a spirit at work in you.

Prophecy is also Pattern: the Book of Ruth

One reason I haven’t been blogging as steadily as I should is being busy with other projects.

We’ve just uploaded our first teaching video; this one on the book of Ruth. The primary target audience is descendents of Israel who don’t know their Messiah yet.

If you have Jewish friends, I’d be interested to hear what they think of this. Was it effective? Did it inspire them to read their own Bible?

Should Believers Communicate in Newspeak?

I am not a conservative. I’ve been called that, and sometimes still am called that. But people who identify themselves as “conservative” are often part of the problem.

My last post angered such people–not really because of the message (most didn’t read the entire post, but condemned it out-of-hand anyway).

It’s safe to say they’re more upset with me than with the people and situations I wrote about.

Why?

Because I refused to call evil good and good evil. What’s important is not that the early stages of anti-Christian persecution is ramping up as you read this; what’s important is that we frame everything in the Newspeak terminology of the enemy.

Meanwhile, a little humor for the day. Whoever made this little postcard below should probably get an education and learn how to write in English instead of posting their prejudices about science and Christianity. If it’s for real.

 

Since I has no right to use science, me get of computer now.

It’s Germany in 1934

Some of us have been telling you all this was coming, but you insisted  we were paranoid gloom & doom nut cases.

Courts all over the erstwhile republic are overturning the will of the people (where/when necessary) to legalize sodomy as “marriage.” But the sodomite mafia has already stepped on the next rung of their agenda: normalizing the “transgender” community. “Transgender” individuals are not just transvestites, but transexuals–those who have operations to surgically alter their sex.

In surprising areas of the country, schoolteachers are being discouraged from referring to boys and girls as boys and girls, and people can enter whatever bathroom they want to, based on whatever gender they choose to identify with.

Houston, Texas is one of the places this coed restroom deal happened. Citizens signed and submitted a petition to put this issue on the ballot to let the people decide on it directly in the election. The lesbian mayor of Houston ignored the petition, decreeing it as invalid, even though well over twice the minimum signatures required were on it.

Some Texans sought a legal redress of their grievance against the imperious mayor’s illegal actions regarding the petition. She and her fellow social engineers behaved like typical would-be tyrants and have filed subpoenas requiring those plaintiffs who happen to be church leaders to submit their sermons and sermon notes to her.

Still say it can’t happen here in America, land of the free?

For 60 years the leftists have been pretending to venerate the First Amendment; but anybody capable of rational thought who’s been paying attention knew they would only champion free speech and freedom of religion until they acquired the power to usurp it from anyone who disagreed with them. This dialectic has played out in history over and over.

It’s happening again as you read this.

While we’re on the subject of hypocrisy, violation of rights, and freedom of religion, we might as well cover another recent event:

The “Freedom From Religion Foundation” is an atheist organization dedicated to silencing Christians, stopping Christian participation in politics, and erasing our country’s Judeo-Christian heritage from history.

People like this are the ones who get offended if you say “God bless you” when they sneeze. They’re the reason stores say “season’s greetings” or “happy holidays” instead of “merry Christmas.” In fact, they’re one reason preachers are afraid to speak the truth around election time.

They claim to be against all religions, but they’re really only worried about Biblical Christianity (though they like to use the other religions as examples of how bad religion is, so that they can condemn Christianity by association).

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has a local chapter in Florida, and here’s what it says on their website:

“The Central Florida Freethought Community (CFFC) has been working hard to keep religion out of government in Central Florida.”

In Orange County, Florida, an organization called the Satanic Temple is distributing Satanic coloring books to school children.

The organization helping them to do this is the “ Freedom From Religion Foundation.”

Somebody has just tipped their hand. This illustrates exactly who is behind atheism, and who atheists serve.

Fifty years ago people would have scoffed if you put this kind of stuff in a speculative horror novel. Thirty years ago, even.

I remember the first church service I attended after the election in 2008.

Then as now, my membership was in a predominantly black congregation. Still, I was discouraged (to put it mildly) that so many people who seemingly know better voted not for the lesser of two evils (which is bad enough), but the evil of two lessers. If so many professing Christians support turning our nation further from God just because they believe that people of their own skin color will benefit (which has been proven a lie, not that the media will admit it and that’s not the point, anyway), then what’s going to happen when powerful delusion comes, accompanied by all the lying signs and wonders the enemy can muster?

Anyway, somebody I respected up until that time asked me if I’d stayed up to watch the election results come in state by state.

“I’d rather watch a train wreck in slow motion,” I said.

“Come on,” he said, “it’s not that bad.”

“I guess it depends on whether you love your country or not,” I replied.

It occurred to me that people in 1933 Germany probably engaged in nearly identical conversations. That was about the time a charismatic hope-and-change candidate named Adolf Hitler was elected, promising to fundamentally transform Germany.

For those who think the comparison between the current occupant of the White House and the infamous Austrian socialist are unfair, I’ll remind you that the foreign-born Chancellor of Germany had a lot less checks and balances in his way than existed in 2008 America. It’s taking the enemies of freedom longer to dismantle our safeguards against tyranny, so in 2014 we’re about where Germany was in 1934. Six US years to one German year. What a bargain.

And now we’re having demonstrated for us why there was no effective opposition to the Nazis by organized religion: those who are not cowards or collaborators are being singled out for silencing.
