I realize, as this forum evidences, that 99.9999% of what I post falls on deaf ears.

Maybe. " But to him who has ears, let him hear."

I realize that the working definition of a "Christian" in the USA is now right there with that of most of the "Christians" in Germany under the National Socialist (NAZI) Party.
Quote
A large segment of the Protestant churches in Germany, known as Deutsche Christen (German Christians), became more than bystanders. Their explicit support of Hitler and National Socialist ideology, and its influence on their theology, made them perpetrators.

Thousands of years ago, the Holy Scriptures predicted that, during the Last Days, good would be labelled as evil and evil as good. Hitler, an expert in Orwellian discourse, was right there with Stalin in this heinous duplicity. The same upside down thinking has now become the Orwellian 'reality' in the USA. The moment one says, "I am a Christian", most people, particularly those on the left, think one is a Deutsche Christen, like the "Evangelical Christians" who voted for Trump.


For those who just read the above, who are more concerned with the devastation our biosphere is experiencing at the hands of Capitalist profit over people and planet than with the spiritual depravity of world leaders like Trump, Putin, Xi, et al, you need to try to grasp what Sholzhenitsyn meant by the phrase, "..., we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.".

Capitalist profit over people and planet murder and mayhem.     

Our problems are ALL based on our spiritual condition, from the moment we reach the age of reason until we draw our last breath. Get right with God now. If you do, you are, in these times of the Great American Embrace of Evil, probably guaranteed to have, like Bonhoeffer, a shorter life span, but you will have victory for your soul. If you don't, you are your own worst enemy.


I read this comment and the associated article at Sojourners. One of the great benefits of visiting and posting here. I tend to share with you the belief that we are in a. iced battle between good and evil, and that we will be judged according to how we showed up when all is said and done. that evil is in such ascendance these4 days is demoralizing. But one must have faith, even when it's all we have.


I read this the other day. It seems appropriate:

The darker the night, the brighter the stars, The deeper the grief, the closer is God! Fyodor Dostoevsky
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
