History consists of a long series of attempts to achieve what seemed to someone’s imagination and plans to be a “better world”, but which often involved revolution, war and mayhem…

Mankind never actually succeeds in achieving perpetual happiness for anyone, let alone everyone. But with human nature being as it is, many people are certain that they can lead us to that magical and mythical utopia.

Twenty and twenty-first century radicalism as studied by the likes of President Obama and Hillary Clinton* aspires to something seductively labelled “fundamental change”, among other things. The radicalism of such groups as Antifa aims to achieve its ends in any way possible including violence if necessary, in order to eventually end up with the kind of world radicals desire. Millions of those flocking to Western shores with the aid of globalists and radicals seeking upheaval, and well-meaning but blinkered politicians, are bringing with them their own distinct and extreme idea of utopia which is in total opposition to the founding ideas of freedom they’re invading.

Those seeking fundamental change have no regard for traditional views of right or wrong, or any fixed notion of such things. In fact, they work to dismantle or destroy traditional views of right or wrong. Since we evolved out of the slime, most radical adherents believe, there is no God to answer to, or if there is, he/ she is such a cool dude that he wants us to do what we want to do anyway. We determine what’s right or wrong, in their minds. When I say “we” I mean those who agree with radical ideology get to choose. The rest of us-those who disagree-don’t deserve to choose, because we’re “bigoted”, “racist”, “ignorant”, “homophobic” and so on, ad-nauseam. Please don’t think I mean to say that only leftist radicals are guilty and the rest of us innocent: we all hold to some degree of faulty thinking.

In that above series of accusations which we’ve all heard many times in recent months, and in other similar derogatory labels, are attempts to blame someone-anyone- for the fact that we as a nation, as a race and as individuals haven’t arrived at the desired place of bliss and wholeness. And even if we aren’t among those who stoop to such attacks in blind hypocrisy, we all indulge in the same blame game. Husbands blame wives, wives blame husbands, kids blame parents, parents blame kids, voters blame politicians, politicians blame each other…and so it goes on. Someone else is always to blame, and in the dark world of politics there’s always someone at or near the top to blame for our problems.

Every politician attempts to ride to glory on the promise of “change”. Why is the idea of change so appealing to so many people when it comes to election time? The nicest, most constructive answer, and the ultimate answer to that question is that we as humans, having strayed far from our Creator and his ways, are attempting to bring happiness and fulfillment to our lives without Him.

Have you ever taken a wrong turn in your car somewhere, and continuing on, you find that the road you’re on gets smaller, bumpier, more remote, and more distant from your destination? That’s where the human race is now. We’re all on roads which lead the wrong way: away from our God. I’m not talking about failing to be “religious”, I’m talking about failing to seek our Almighty, Holy God.

For many people the contrary route is the chosen and preferred route. People are intentionally heading away from God, because they’re certain they’ll be better off. But  the road gets rougher, and narrower, and dirtier. It begins to wind around some tricky ledges and over some rocky passes, further into the uncertain and uncharted wilds, while the sky gets darker and darker. At the end of the road is…the end of the road.

“There is no peace,” says the LORD, “for the wicked.” (Isaiah 48:22 ESV).

‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace (Jeremiah 6:14).

But the wicked are like the tossing sea, which cannot rest, whose waves cast up mire and mud (Isaiah 57:20 NIV).

FAUX: THE NEW REAL

In my higgorance and naivety I’ve fallen for the fancy synonym for “fake” too many times, and in this case, once is too many times…

don_quijote_and_sancho_panza

All kinds of things are advertised as being “faux” these days, the word being paraded as though “faux” were something chic, valuable and amazingly desirable. And of course many things are fake without giving any such warning as the four-letter “f” word in my title.

We have fake leather, fake wood, fake flowers, fake glass and fake metal. Fake organs, fake fruit, chocolate, leather, tans, news, scientists, hair, teeth, nails, boobs, men, women, trees, pottery, religion, healing, prophets, apostles, Republicans, beggars, music, promises, names, I.D., money…and the list goes on for as long as you can list anything pertaining to human beings.

The first five readers who’ve read this far will receive a Ferrari…

…but not a real one.

THE ONLY GOSPEL

For you people around the world who are searching for truth-and there are many millions, here’s the second part of my original post on the gospel of Jesus Christ…

What-is-truth02

THE ONLY GOSPEL

New Testament scriptures in the Bible plainly state over and over that there is no other gospel, no other “good news,” plan or story which can bridge the gap between a holy, perfect, eternal God and humanity. That’s a very politically incorrect statement to make these days, but then, the gospel of Jesus Christ has always been politically incorrect: Jesus himself died for making such claims.
No matter how many people wish to put all the world’s religions into a melting pot so as to produce some weak insipid mixture intended to make everyone happy (which is impossible anyway) such thinking is in direct opposition to what the Bible teaches, and a God who really cares about you will ensure that real truth cannot be diluted or changed.
You would be making a huge and illogical mistake if you loosely associated yourself with Christ and yet accepted the notion that all “paths”, all religions and philosophies, lead to the same God, or to the same spiritual destination. How can there be one God and at the same time no God, ten gods, and a million gods? It takes an arrogant determination to avoid logic and reason to believe such a thing.
In order to demonstrate the singularity of the message of Jesus and the early Church which has been passed down to us, I want to quote a few verses from the Bible. By reading them you can at least be aware of what the God of the Bible teaches.
God said:
“You shall have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3).
“I, even I, am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior” (Isaiah 43:11).
“I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God” (Isaiah 44: 6).
Jesus said:
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).
“All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers….I am the gate: whoever enters through me will be saved” (John 10:8-9).
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
“If you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins” (John 8: 24).
“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies, and whoever lives and believes in me will never die” (John 11:25-26).
Peter said:
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
To the Galatians Paul wrote:
“I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel – which is really no gospel at all” (i.e. NOT good news! Galatians 1:6-7).
Then he wrote:
“But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!” (verse 8).

Professor Stephen Hawking, one of the famous scientists many are trusting in for guidance to their chosen eternal abode (i.e. nowhere) recently stated that Trump, by rejecting the Paris accords on climate change, is single-handedly likely to turn earth into another Venus, “…with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees (Celcius) and raining sulphuric acid” (NOTE 1).

The great prof has also made it clear repeatedly that mankind must leave earth very soon in order to survive the cataclysm about to overtake us. Probably only those genetically perfect specimens would be included. That excludes him…and me. Hmm, it’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine…

My God already has a plan to put our world right, but the prof. isn’t interested: see Revelation for details.

One of the ironies of all this is that this very day Mike Pence, fulfilling Trump’s executive order made a few days ago, reopened the National Space Council, abolished in 1993. Acting NASA Administrator Robert Lightfoot stated:

“The establishment of the council is another demonstration of the Trump Administration’s deep interest in our work, and a testament to the importance of space exploration to our economy, our nation, and the planet as a whole” (2).

Pence declared that the intention to re-create the council is space exploration:

“Here, from this bridge to space, our nation will return to the moon, and we will put American boots on the face of Mars,” Pence said.

“Today, I come to assure you, the men and women of NASA, and all those at this gateway to the stars, where the aspirations of the American people have taken flight, that under President Donald Trump, America will lead in space once again,” he said (3).

Just as many had become convinced-and still are-that Trump was going to start a nuclear war (but not before slaughtering all colored people, women, Muslims and gays, and not before banning all immigration) so many are also convinced that if we don’t give our liberal politicians and their chosen scientists all our money, and if we don’t stop breathing and breeding, and if we don’t stop eating, we’re going to all be fried-or drowned-within a century. Dissenters, including many scientists, are shut out of the discussion, ignored and labelled “flat-earthers” and far worse-in the usual “tolerant”, loving, inclusive manner of today’s extreme liberals and socialists. Only they are intelligent, intellectual, educated, caring and level-headed. They hate (verb intended) the rest of us-ignorant, gross, crass, white stupid Trump-voters that we are. Anyway, I think I have the perfect solution to all our differences.

The solution was first noted in a spoof science-fiction novel called “The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”, written by Brit. Douglas Adams. His intention was not to sort out liberal-conservative issues, or any political issue, because he wrote in the good old days when literature could be non-political, and we could all just have a laugh without the need for sarcasm, slander and hatred.

In Adam’s novel there existed a planet called Golgafrincham, where some decided it was time to get rid of a third of the population who had proven to be totally non-productive and obnoxious. So they concocted a story that the planet would shortly be destroyed in a great catastrophe, and they planned a planet-wide evacuation in three space-ships. The non-productive third of the population were to “go on ahead” in the first of the three ships. In reality, the other two-thirds of the people stayed behind and enjoyed a quiet, productive life without the leeches.

By now you may know where I’m going with this. Perhaps (and Trump may well be one step ahead of us all-he may have read the book)…perhaps we could similarly “send ahead” those convinced that we’re going to fry, and those misleading the population with tales of evolution from nothing to nothing and earth turning into Venus, and all the politicians who want us to hand over our money and our food and our vehicles, to Mars, or any destination of their liking. I’ll stay here.

Researchers at the University of Greater Heybridge in Essex, United Kingdom, have been working on a project which could be set to turn the music world upside down…

Cashew_sable_syrian_hamster

Professor Scat “the cool cat” Higginbottom has been at the center of an advanced study, picking up from where the late and great Vivian Stanshall left off.  That is, the discovery that hamsters have more musical talent in their genes than Mozart and Beethoven had between them. You will surely remember, dear listener, that Stanshall spearheaded the ground-breaking research in “Snail Music”.

It all began late one December night in 1971 when Stanshall, then still working on his own masterpieces for the “Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band”, detected  a small, shrill but heavenly voice coming from the corner of his living room. To Stanshall’s amazement, it was his thirty-two year old hamster “Minks”, who, after having relieved himself copiously on the floor of his cage, was jubilantly singing “Moonlight In Vermont” with a gusto which would have sent Sinatra into a rage of envy. The University of Heybridge was poised to spearhead the study of this phenomenon.

Unfortunately neither Stanshall nor the Uni. were able to find the funding needed to conduct a thorough study of Minks’ talent, and the raver rodent was all but forgotten. However, similar discoveries made by other hamster-lovers in recent times have revived interest in these amazing creatures, and thanks to Prime Minister May’s personal interest in the humble hamster, government funding has at last been forthcoming to the tune of two million British pounds (twenty-eight trillion dollars).

Professor Higginbottom is absolutely delighted:

“I’m absolutely delighted”, he said.

So stay tuned folks, it’s only a matter of time before the newest heart throb on your favorite radio station will be…a hamster.

* Apologies to all you hamster-lovers out there who’ve read my report on this amazing research before. Please allow me to be slightly insane, or I will go completely insane… Why did I select the “Evolution/ Creation category for this post? You may well ask…
