Category: POLITICAL CORRECTNESS


The gloves are off now. No longer do we argue the point about politics with any measure of civility or honesty; no longer are news reporters reporting news or educators merely educating, and no longer do we intellectually or intelligently jostle and contend for the moral high ground of truth. Instead lies, slander, hate, intrigue and unashamed scheming are the weapons of choice in a mad, rabid attempt to bring down a duly elected President. Those who once claimed to be tolerant are out of the closet and swinging, bare knuckled.

So what’s just around the corner for America, and so for the world? It the haters win, there can be no other outcome but the total loss of free speech, the triumph of those who hate what America stands for, and the triumph of elites determined to rule over the rest of us using our money and our hard labor. The enemies of America and what was once Europe will be free to swamp the West. Sounds almost apocalyptic, doesn’t it?

I’ve had it with “experts”, of all shapes and sizes…it’s time to exorcise them from my view of the world entirely!

untitled

For a large part of my life I’ve had an inbuilt distrust for “experts” in the secular world. You know-the ones who “must be right” because they went to X university and appeared on TV; the ones who tell us that we’re related to slugs; the ones who tell us that by eating hamburgers we’re destroying planet earth; the ones who so want us to be tolerant that they will not tolerate any other view but theirs, and the ones who tell us that candidate X (yes, I do like the letter “x”) obviously has no path to election.

I’ve also had an intrinsic distrust for those in the “religious” world who invent their own theology and call it Truth. You know-the ones who say that all religions lead to God (which God they don’t say-they just know it’s not the Biblical God); the ones who say that if you don’t speak in tongues you’re useless to God; the ones who say that Allah and Jehovah are one; the ones who say that John Doe is the latest Prophet and we all need to listen to him, and the ones who want to cut your head off if you don’t see things their way.

However, in recent years I’ve been distancing myself also from many “experts” within the evangelical Christian world. You know, the ones who are, metaphorically speaking, paraded on Christian radio and in the pulpits, and now behind microphones and guitars, as bearers of True doctrine. They went to X university, they’re good-looking, and they’ve written five hundred and sixty two million books on the subject, so they must be right.

There are Christian ministers and teachers who will tell you to “be like the Bereans” by searching the scriptures “to see if these things are so”, and who will then tell you how to be like the Bereans their way…

They’re the ones who say that they need X million dollars in the next two weeks to continue their ministry so “give as much as God is leading you to give”. They’re the ones who say that “God has a wonderful plan for your life” while Christians around the world get driven from their homes and slaughtered horribly by their persecutors. They’re the ones who tell me that I’m clearly a Jew and Israel-hater because I’m not a Pre-Trib believer; the ones who say that the early chapters of Genesis are merely poetic language to describe evolution- for example, that the word “day” really means billions of years and that God only told Noah to build a boat so he could float around on a lake for a while. They’re the ones who insist that Biblical wine is only grape juice, failing to explain why Paul would say that older women should not be addicted to “grape juice” (Titus 2:3).

I’ve had it with the “experts”. From now on, it’s me and my Bible.

 

 

 

Have you been intimidated into thinking that if you were to confess to believing that God created, you would be the odd one out, and the object of universal scorn and derision?

A Gallup poll conducted In May of 2012 found that in the United States forty-six percent of Americans hold the view that God created humans in their present form at some time within the last 10,000 years. About a third of Americans believe that humans evolved, but with God’s guidance; 15% say humans evolved, but that God had no part in the process. More broadly, some 78% of Americans today believe that God had a hand in the development of humans in some way, just slightly less than the percentage who felt this way 30 years ago http://www.gallup.com/poll/155003/Hold-Creationist-View-Human-Origins.aspx

I’M PROUD TO BE A WACKO

In the UK, my country of origin, it’s a commonly held view that too many Americans are “religious”, and that the US is the home of the Christian Fundamentalist wacko. It’s therefore not surprising to Brits that so many Americans are, in their view, “ignorant of the facts”, as represented in the Gallup poll. I’ll put it a different way: the United States as a whole has not abandoned its faith in the Biblical God while much of Europe has.

Despite all the determined efforts of evolutionists, atheists, the media and many in the education establishment to indoctrinate everyone into the ways of naturalism, many Americans have a lot more savvy and independence of thought when it comes to faith, and aren’t so easily swayed or brainwashed by those determined to get rid of the Christian God. On top of this, freedom-of-speech laws allow creationists and intelligent design ministries to thrive in the US, whereas in Western Europe there’s far more legal and political opposition to such ministries.

The common and caustic charge that creationists are ignorant and stupid is just a smoke screen-an obfuscation (my new favorite word) designed to hide the facts. While they’re fewer in number (because there’s resistance to their hiring and because they don’t get massive government funding and secular media backing as the priests of Darwin do) creationists are in many cases at least as well educated, credentialed and informed as evolutionists. It’s a matter of world-view, not one of who’s most intelligent.

Neither does a majority of scientists in a position of influence prove right: it only helps to dictate who will have the upper hand in public exposure and debate. Ultimately one with God is a majority. The earth belongs to God and not to his deniers, who are, after all, only tenants.

There’s a culture war going on: a spiritual battle for individual hearts and minds. It seems sometimes like the “nays” have it when it comes to God and creation, and that’s intimidating to many people. But those of us who’ve chosen to follow the clear evidence in nature, in scripture, and in empirical science (rather than philosophy without evidence posing as science) see it God’s way. We recognize that Jesus Christ said:

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few” (Matthew 7:13,14 ESV).

 

 

 

GREETING FREEDOM

In the course of my work I’ve been wished a “merry Christmas” many more times this season than in the last several years. I’ve also heard “happy holidays” of course, but the increase in the “C” word is marked and clear. I’m happy to hear either: I’m not offended…

Snowflake_DetailWhichever greeting suits you is fine with me, so long as whichever greeting suits me is fine with you. And therein is my point. In a truly free and diverse country we should all be able to be what we are, and we should all have the opportunity to offer our views. Once someone claims “offense” at someone else’s thoughts and beliefs we’re losing freedom and heading towards tyranny.

When Mr Trump was running for election he said “We’re going to say ‘Merry Christmas’ again!” Thank you, Mr President, for defying the liars, those who hate the faith of our fathers, and those who wish tyranny upon us.

A regular charge made by people wanting us all to abandon our principles, our morals, our faith and our hope in God is that “religion is the opiate of the people”, one of Marx’s little nuggets of wisdom (irony intended). The charge is (and always was) aimed squarely at the Christian world. It’s rarely aimed at, for example, Islam, since liberals, progressives and extreme leftists have made themselves friends of said religion, though how the two fit together I cannot figure out for the life of me.

Bury-your-Head-in-the-sand

It’s a ridiculous accusation. Admitted, the Roman Church worked to own and rule the people of Europe for centuries, persecuting believer and unbeliever alike. But the most truly Christian nations-while far from perfect-have been the freest and most prosperous nations. Those who’ve attempted to purge religion from their midst have brought the greatest misery on their masses, particularly the poorest who they claimed to be helping: the Soviet Union, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, Mao’s China, North Korea today, and many more. Furthermore, no-one in the Christian world is forced to be in it: we’re in it because we want to be.

I’ve been both sides of the faith-divide: I’ve been a rampant hedonist with no principles or beliefs whatsoever, and I’ve been a Bible believing Christian, and I can say without reservation that I would far rather be where I am now-within the Christian fold. I’ve never been coerced into attending church or into believing anything, and having faith and hope in God and Jesus Christ only enriches my life and cleanses me from some of my own destructive tendencies.

I know I’m going to tread on many toes here, but I’m going to say it anyway: the real “opiate of the masses” today is entertainment-the kind which liberals and progressives, along with many on the other side of the political spectrum, themselves produce and are addicted to. I see multitudes of people who give up their lives to park their ever-growing rear-ends on the lazy boy, to forego real-life experiences and physical and spiritual health, and to absorb whatever rot oozes out of their TV for hours on end. Gaming is also huge now. People are immersing themselves into fake worlds because they can’t bear the real one, or because they’re too lazy to live a real life and to actually communicate with people face to face, intelligently.

While our world is being ushered into globalism, (notwithstanding the attempts of Trump to reverse the trend) which will never produce any kind of utopia except for the scheming elite who suck all our money away, the masses are compliantly and submissively sticking their heads in the sand of unhealthy entertainment.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that all entertainment is evil or wrong: it isn’t. But just as people always get that phrase about money from the Bible wrong, saying,”Money is the root of all evil”, when the Bible actually says “The love of money is the root of all evil”, so it’s the total immersion in, obsession with, love for and addiction to entertainment which is draining the life out of millions of people, while the pushers and the pimps work to bring about their desired political and social goals.
