We’re In!

Many people with whom I engage do not have a grasp on their identity, although they have been self-identified as Christians for years. This failure of knowing is revealed by insecurity of being, search for significance, hair-trigger defensiveness and the like.

For this I fault the traditional church which has been big on pointing out sin, you miserable wretch, you, and all the ways you need to follow to remain in the fold of their acceptance. Although they teach “It is by grace you are saved, and not by works,” their very requirements whether stated or implied, are translated as works-to-earn in the mind of the believer so that there is much “doing” – with its accompanying sense of never enough, and little “being,” with its feeling of rest, acceptance and joy.

What scripture shows, and the Church tends to overlook, is that the Almighty, God of Everything, has come to this little planet, down to our level, and has self-identified as our Father. He has (already) dealt with the sin problem and now incorporates us into Himself in a huge, other-worldly embrace so that we experience life two in one, as it were. We really do become His children, not just His creation along with lemmings and butterflies. Since we are (already) accepted and loved, we should not have to prove it, or strive for it. Instead, we rejoice that He is within our very beings and go forward into fullness of life totally loved and unafraid.

Hijacked

This nation, place of my birth and maturing, has been hijacked. Deep in back rooms, behind the lock of electronic devices or even armed guards, evil designs are being conceived, hatched and released. Beyond the knowing of the average citizen, an inner group has moved into power external to the elective process. Away from scrutiny of public eye, power brokers make decisions which affect every part of our lives. Their agenda is contrary to what is the common virtue or standard held by the majority. Avoiding the light like any troglodyte in a cave, their work of influence continues to our harm while John Q. Citizen goes about his busy, grocery shopping, baby-birthing, ordinary life.

Covert operations are carried out by Americans which, if known by the public would be totally opposed at every level. As some of this evil work begins to come to the world’s awareness, we have become hated, and with good reason. Some of this evil is sponsored by the federal government; some of it is outside of government, either elected or bureaucratic.

The reach of these men is beyond borders. Their goal is global in scope. To achieve a world that is nicely under control means the removal of millions who “stress” the planet by their presence on it. The undesirable millions. The uneducated consumers of resources. This includes, by definition, everyone who is not “sustainable,’ every defective, “useless” person,” every older person. The Elite will rule; the rest will be controlled, incarcerated or removed. Read: annihilated.

It might be possible to trace this movement back to the colleges of the 60s or the Bilderbergers, considered evil by some segments of society. At this point, it matters not. What is important is recognition of evil among us, working to destroy the fabric of the nation from within. Every loss of personal freedom, no matter how insignificant it seems, is another step down into the tyranny of bondage. Every “you need this for the country’s safety” directive weakens the body like a poison pill. We are being herded sheep-like into behavior that 50 years ago would have been totally abhorrent.

So, what next? Continued silence and acquiescence? Dancing and partying while Rome burns? Blood in the streets? Is Evil going to triumph over Good? The future is today. Our actions, our raised voices are required lest we all be marched off to eternal silence. God won His victory over evil at the bloody cross. Now it is our turn.

A Recent Grinch Musing While Driving

Based on what I have read in comments on the web recently, I have a few points to make.

One is that civility is a lost concept to most people.

Two, some people have no sense of humor.

Three, a large proportion of respondents equate vulgarity with wit. Rather, vulgarity is the antithesis of wit. Check your Webster’s or Oxford’s, I don’t care.

Four, a number of people need to go back to school to learn how to write and spell. Grammar is also a missing quotient in many. Quotient? Check your dictionary.

It seems safe to say, many are wit-less.
