When Christian love and charity is indistinguishable from greed, evil, and faithlessness 😱

By Jack Cluth    10.05.19   


[T]o the Christian Right, an impeachment inquiry on the part of House Democrats amounts to an attempted coup d’etat. Trump, regardless of his blatant corruption, is still quite popular among far-right Christian fundamentalists — who have been rushing to his defense and sounding very melodramatic in the process.


//
Call me naive (you wouldn’t be the first), but I’d never have suspected so many millions of my fellow citizens could be so easily duped into believing Donald Trump was anointed by a loving, righteous God to lead America. Then again, to quote the noted philosopher Forrest Gump, “Stupid is as stupid does.”

While I hesitate to stoop to calling others “stupid,” sometimes things are so blindingly obvious and undeniable you simply have to call it as you see it.

Nice work, America. You broke it, you bought it.

https://whatwouldjackdo.org/2019/10/05/when-christian-love-and-charity-is-indistinguishable-from-greed-evil-and-faithlessness/

For fundamemtalists, it's about judges, Israel, and the "end times" heralding Jesus' final return. Little do they know that were Jesus to actually return and rule, he would be less than pleased with their doings.

As long as white Baptists are doing well, it's all good in their world. these are the "comfortable" I would like noting more than to afflict.




Just love me some pharisees.

🤔
Surly, that belief among secular liberals that the irrational support of Trump is all about the End Times for "Fundamentalists" is a mendacity laced canard carefully cultivated by the 😈 pseudo-Christians themselves. It is clever buck passing 😈 pharisaic sophistry, nothing more. It is a pious guise to cover the truth that the support for Trump is all about Mammon Worship.

I as a Christian, and a pretty Fundamentalist, walk the talk Christian at that, urge you solemnly not to believe their pious "End Times" justifies 👹 WHATEVAH for "Christians" and Trump. As the article I posted makes clear, it is not possible to be a Christian, no matter how Fundamentalist, and consciously discard the most basic LAWS ORDERED by Jesus Christ HIMSELF in the New Testament.

The third Temple and ALL THAT excuses NOBODY who calls themselves a Christian, Fundamentalist or otherwise, if they willfully embrace the Sinfully Damning REJECTION of Christ's Commands through full throated Mammon worship. Christians who embrace 100% ANTI-Christian behavior just because Trump moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem do NOT earn a "Get-Out-of-Hell-Free" Card.

These OBVIOUSLY FALSE PROPHETS provide Biblical End Times evidence that they probably do not want to talk about. 😉

The "Christian" leaders pushing this blasphemy are deluded. These 😈 reprobate leaders are under what the Bible calls STRONG DELUSION (explained below).
 
After the following graphic of Trumper Republican types, the following quote explains, from the true Christian Bible based perpective, what is going on with these pseudo-Christian pharisees:


And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth,
but had pleasure in unrighteousness. -- 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 King James Version (KJV)

God has tolds us all what we must do to be saved. God has, throughout the ages, sent messengers to tell us, in no uncertain terms, what is right and what is the path to perdition.

Mammon Worshipping Human society kills these messengers who cut right through the clever lies and self-serving pharisee sophistry, but God continues to shred any and all cheap excuses for evil behavior, in all its forms.

Quote from: AG
Criminally Insane people do not negotiate; they fight to the death, no matter how irrational the biosphere trashing system that gave them all their short term privileges is. It will get ugly very soon.

It will, indeed. Especially when the elites lose control their various conduit schemes to sieve wealth away from working class people.

I wonder whether people will in fact actually "revolt,"given the the state controls every meaningful vector of force. The best way would be for people to become non-cooperative en masse.



Well, that's the thing. The vectors of force are, as Chris Hedges has pointed out, both a stick AND a carrot (see: Inverted Totalitarianism - Sheldon S. Wolin). That is, the public is being calmly and methodically herded into living in a nonresilient hand to mouth way that gives us little or no ability to just go off grid. True, the preppers can do that to a certain extent, but I'm sure there are very few prepppers than can last one year without having to go to a supermarket or put some gasoline in one of their machines.

The masses, like you and me, need a monthly paycheck (or a pension) to survive month to month. Then there are those pesky legal tender laws. My savings are in a bank, not under a mattress. How much cash do you have in the house? Not much, I'll wager. How long do you think you can survive through bartering when you aren't allowed access to a bank? Not long.

So what does that have to do with TPTB's plan to deal with non-cooperation en masse? Plenty.

Our routine daily living is the carrot. Though there is way too much gratuitous cruelty dished out by the police and other fascist forces in the USA on a daily basis, most of us get the carrot, not the stick.

En masse non-cooperation will happen when people have absolutely no other recourse due to environmental conditions. TPTB are preparing for that by slowly transitioning the manual work done at all levels to machines. So, when 35% or so (the minimum of what you usually need for a full blown revolution) of we-the-people stop cooperating, the plan is to brand us as "enemies of the state" and take away our driving, bank, supermarket and hospital "privileges".

Their plan will work, Surly. BUT, they know the peril they face shortly thereafter from implementing said plan.

The problem for TPTB is that there is a nation destroying inertia to these things. When such a large segment of the population is dying in the streets from hunger, disease and exposure to the elements, without a shot fired, the segment doing the enforcing fragments into warring factions between those with a heart and those who sold theirs to fascism.

That's when the shots start. Yeah, TPTB have war gamed this too. That's why they keep trying to keep the cops happy. But the cops WILL split into warring factions, no matter what the TPTB do with their perception management tools to keep the cops in line. Again, TPTB KNOW this is an unavoidable consequence of mass suffering among the populace. THAT is why they actually want to prevent, through routine veiled threats, the initiation of en masse noncooperation that begins the revolution in the first place.

All that said, TPTB will fight to the death with every bought and paid for cop and AI drone they have access too. They need us ONLY if they think we are useful to them. With Catastrophic Climate Change guaranteed now, TPTB WANT less human carbon footprints out there so the 1% can make it through the hothouse earth period.

Yeah, they are into wishful thinking there, but that isn't the point.

The point is that, thanks to Artificial Intelligence, huge advances in sensor technology and machines that are smarter than the averge bear (or human), they now CAN function without us. This is the danger we-the-people face. This is a danger we have never faced before.

Tyrants always wanted a large population to rule over, so, to a certain extent, the popultion could pressure said tyrant to back off with the gratuitous cruelty for a while. But at present, the tryants among us actually have a Climate Change "rationale" for "culling" most of us.

Think about that. They have the machines to keep them happy and they are worried about the environment they are trashing. Have these crazy bastards ever tried empathy?  Are they willing to admit they are the MAIN CAUSE if Catastrophic Climate Change?

Notice that I have not even brought up all the crazies with guns out there. I haven't mentioned these folks, many who are ex-military, family of cops or friends of cops, because I do not believe they are the ones that will start this. However, when it starts, and they need medicine at the closed pharmacy or food at the closed supermarket, they will get it.

Our civilization is far more fragile than meets the eye. TPTB, who are far more concerned with preserving the profit over people and planet (insane) status quo than we-the-people are, know that the present status quo is economically and environmentally unsustainable.

So, what do I think they are going to do about that? They are going to keep their bunkers in high tech condition and keep buying the cops. When, not if, the SHTF, they will attempt to "cull" 90% of the human population.

They will be partly successful, but they will be overwhelmed, despite the fact that their "controlling human behaviors during a revolution with targeted violence" computer models, prepared by the smartest psychologists, predict total success. Darwinian "Apex predator" GARBAGE math in, happy talk GARBAGE out.

The human population will be reduced to about half what it is now. Infrastructure will be in shambles. Global shipping will be a thing of the past. City states within countries will attack each other for stuff. It won't be "mad max", but that is the direction things will be headed towards. Survival will be more pressing than schooling. Less education always breeds more prejudice and irrational violence.

That surviving half will finish destroying the key parts of the biosphere we depend on, descending into nuclear war or cannibalism. The gross barbarism will feed on itself and guarantee more mass death.

Throughout that horror, there will be voices, as there have been for thousands of years, clamoring for repentance from our sins against God, an embrace of God centered altruism, harmony and respect for each other and nature. They will be drowned out by the materialists.

I don't know if we will go extinct or not. However, the successful perpetuation of our species does not look like a good bet right now. TPTB, and most of the rest of humanity, refuse to obey Christ's Commandments to respect fellow humans and God's Creation. Sure, it's been that way for thousands of years, but Catastrophic Climate Change is the human species Coffin we will all be buried in because of TPTB's stubborn clinging to the suicidal "might equals right" demonic blindness. 

But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 2 Corinthians 4:3-4

For some 500 years, capitalism’s logic of eco-genocidal accumulation has presided over both the physical eradication of human and non-human life and the cultural eradication of the languages, traditions and collective knowledge that constitute life’s diversity. It necrotizes the planetary biosphere, leaving behind only decay. It burns the practically unrecoverable library of life and eradicates its future masterpieces simultaneously. It inflicts not just physical destruction, but psychological grief and trauma as people witness their lands go under the sea, get immolated by fire, and drown in mud. The First Extermination Event has now produced such a nightmarish world that even temperature maps scream in agony.

Check this out.

Hosea 4:1-3 ...'Hear the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel: for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood. Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.'



Exactly right. Human "civilization" is reaping, more every day, what it has sown. As the land now testifies, this is a time of mourning.

ISRAEL’S SEA OF GALILEE AND DEAD SEA ARE DYING – WHAT IS BEING DONE?

OCTOBER 22, 2018

By Karyn Simpson

Medill Reports

SNIPPET:

Over the past several decades of carving out an oasis from the desert, Israel has pushed back countrywide water scarcity through desalination, conservation, efficient use of the country’s limited freshwater, and wastewater treatment and reuse. Today, approximately 80 percent of Israel’s drinking water comes from desalination plants, meaning that even as Israel enters its sixth consecutive year of drought, the country should continue to have a stable supply of drinking water for its residents.

The main concern surrounding the drought is the health of Israel’s two natural, above-ground bodies of water, the freshwater Sea of Galilee and the saltwater Dead Sea – both sacred to residents, if for entirely different reasons. While the Dead Sea is valued particularly because of its contributions to Israeli tourism, the Sea of Galilee holds special import in religious history and because many residents remember when it was the country’s main source of water.

“The Sea of Galilee, for all the people in Israel, is emotional – 100 percent emotional,” said Arnon Eshel, who works at Sapir, the water pumping station for the Sea of Galilee. “We come here, we see the Sea of Galilee as it looks now, we are in totally depression.”

The ongoing drought has reduced the Sea of Galilee to some of its lowest levels in history, 215.5 meters (about 707 feet) below sea level. To try to assuage the rapidly decreasing levels and prevent any irreparable environmental damage, Israel has almost completely ceased pumping from the Sea of Galilee. But some pumping is necessary to keep the machines working and to fulfill Israel’s peace agreement with neighboring Jordan.

This water holding tank at Sapir, the pumping facility alongside the Sea of Galilee, mirrors the sea’s water level. On the far side of the tank, just below the fence, a red marker shows the sea’s normal level: 208 meters below sea level. The water is currently at 215.5 meters below sea level. (Karyn Simpson/MEDILL)

“For Jordan, by peace agreement, we have to supply to them 50 million cubic meters (about 13.2 billion gallones) per year from the Sea of Galilee,” Eshel said. “Which means that Jordan is the biggest customer of water from the Sea of Galilee.”

Some of the streams which feed into the Sea of Galilee flow from Jordan, meaning that a portion of the water that ends in the Sea of Galilee should belong to the Jordanians – the crux of the peace agreement. While Israel once faced attacks from Jordan, as evidenced in the historic Yom Kippur War, having water be part of the peace agreement has ensured cooperation between the two countries, Eshel said.

“One of the things that Israel understands, that it’s smart to make cooperation with the agriculture in Jordan, by the government, of course, and have a quiet border – 400 kilometers [248.5 miles], totally quiet border,” Eshel said. “If some terrorists want to try to attack Israel, they say not from here. If it come from here, Israel [will] destroy that area.”

Though Israel has considered building a pipeline from the seawater desalination plants to Jordan to fulfill this water requirement without having to pump from the already-low Sea of Galilee, Eshel said that the construction for such a project would be too cost-prohibitive to be feasible.

Today, only 5 percent of Israel’s drinking water comes from the Sea of Galilee, amounting to approximately 25 million cubic meters (abut 6.6 billion gallons). That is just enough to keep the machines working, Eshel said. The biggest culprit to the sea’s decline is evaporation, and without adequate rainfall, the sea has no chance to replenish what it is losing.

“Every year, we [lose] something around 240 million cubic meters (about 63.4 billion gallons) to evaporation,” Eshel said, which appears as about one meter each year in depth. This descent can be seen from the shoreline, which now contains meters of sand where there used to be water.

“When I was a child, every day I need to choose whether I’m going to school or going to swim. Most of the time I’m going to swim. Don’t judge me – there was no air conditioning when I was a child,” Eshel said. He grew up along the Sea of Galilee and held up a picture of the coastline by his home – a long stretch of concrete sidewalk that ended at the water’s edge. In the photo, water lapped against the wall about a foot below walking level, and small boats floated only a meter or two away from shore.

“I never even needed to think if we have the ability to jump or not,” Eshel said.

He held up a second picture – that same stretch of coastline outside his childhood home taken in recent years. The water’s edge had receded 15 to 20 feet, leaving only sand near the concrete sidewalk where Eshel used to jump off, and old boats were beached on the sandy bank where they used to float.

An idea has been proposed to build a pipe sometime in the next three years that would funnel desalinated water into the Sea of Galilee, Eshel said.

Agelbert NOTE: They have to work quickly or the Sea of Galilee (Kinneret lake) is toast, regardless of "a good winter will replenish the lake " wishful thinking. As you read above, the water, as of October of 2018, was at 215.5 meters below sea level. The lake has now reached a point where it CANNOT recover without adding massive amounts of desalinated water. From Wikipedia:

Quote
After 5 years of drought as of 2018, Sea of Galilee is expected to get to the black line.[22] The black elevation line is the lowest depth from which irreversible damage begin and no water can be pumped out anymore.[23] Israel Oceanographic and Limnological Research describe it as "The black line marks -214.87 m, the lowest-ever level reached since 1926 when the water level record began. According to the water authority, the Kinneret water level must not decline below this level."[24]In February 2018, the city of Tiberias requested a desalination plant to treat the water coming from the Sea of Galilee and demanded a new water source for the city.[25]

In September 2018 the Israeli energy and water office announced a project to pour desalinated water from the Mediterranean sea into the sea of Galilee using an underground tunnel.
The 💧 tunnel is expected to be the largest of its kind done in Israel and will transfer half of the Mediterranean desalted water and will push 300 to 500 million cubic liters of water per year.[27]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_of_Galilee

This would be intended to provide water to the settlements around the Sea of Galilee and to help combat the effects of the drought on the lake, but some Israelis are hesitant to support such a project because of the “one good winter” concept, he said.

“People are afraid we will invest a lot of money for that kind of project, and after one good winter, we won’t need to use it,” Eshel said, referring to how, in non-drought years, Israel typically gets enough rain in the winters to make up for the hot, dry summers. “This is people without vision. People with vision understand, even if we have a good winter, so it’s going to be just one. Then we have another 10 years of drought years. You need to be with courage, but it’s not easy.”

Agelbert additional observation: The Sea of Galilee was a HUGE part of the Ministry of Jesus Christ while He walked among us. Moreover, He appeared there AFTER His Resurrection, cooking a fish on the beach.

Jesus Christ appears on the shore of Lake Tiberias by James Tissot

Maybe I am wrong, but I think Jesus Christ has a soft spot for that lake. If the Sea of Galilee dries up, perhaps that is still another sign that we are experiencing the End Times that the Lord Jesus Christ prophesied about over two thousand years ago. Maranatha!

Any man who has once proclaimed violence as his method is inevitably forced to take the lie as his principle. -- Aleksandr Sholzhenitsyn
Sholzhenitsyn described this Deceit modus operandi in the USSR.
Quote
Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence.
Quote
In our country the lie has become not just a moral category but a pillar of the State.
Sholzhenitsyn described the unavoidable effect of this embrace of evil on the USSR in a book he wrote titled, "The Gulag Archipelago".
Quote
In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousandfold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.
embrace of evil has been part of the USA's MO for at least half a century or more. It will destroy us as effectvely as it destroyed the USSR. The fact that most humans throughout the world embrace evil does not excuse the world leader of said embrace, the USA, from bearing the primary responsibility for fostering it everywhere.

My job as a Christian is to warn people of their destructive embrace of evil, urge them to repent of this and direct them to look to God for answers.

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

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.

So, most refuse to hear and respond to the truth.
 
The Bible is clear that it does not matter. That is God's problem, not mine. My job is to warn about this evil because I will be held responsible by God if I do not warn those embracing evil that they are rushing to the destruction of their souls.
Quote
But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself. -- Ezekiel 3:19
The Bonhoffer moment in NAZI Germany provides pertinent modern day context to Ezekiel 3:19. I believe it was Ronald Reagan that triggered the Bonhoffer moment here in the USA. Too few realized it. Every POTUS thereafter built on this cruel edifice of Deceit. Trump is the most obvious beacon of evil incorporated, but I find little difference, beyond the identity politics food fight, between his morally depraved policies and those of Reagan and every subsequent POTUS.
Quote
Bonhoeffer was a German theologian and pastor who resisted his government when he recognized, very early and very clearly, the dangers of Hitler’s regime. His first warning about the dangers of a leader who makes an idol of himself came in a radio address delivered in February 1933, just two days after Hitler took office.

Despite an abiding Christ-centered peace ethic, a desire to study nonviolent political resistance with Gandhi, and extensive writing about loving one’s enemies, Bonhoeffer eventually became a member of a conspiracy that was responsible for a coup attempt against Hitler. Twelve years after he became one of the first voices in Germany to offer public opposition to the Nazis, Bonhoeffer was executed by them, as a traitor.

By Bonhoeffer’s own account, he and his co-conspirators were living in a time and place in which “the huge masquerade of evil has thrown all ethical concepts into confusion” and in which evil appears in the “form of light, good deeds, historical necessity, [and] social justice.” They were living in a time that required a radical form of ethical discernment, attuned to concrete reality, historical urgency, and the desperate cries of help from victims of the state.

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.".

The inescapable EFFECT of moral depravity on a nationwide scale is environmental DESTRUCTION. Evil is progressive. It begins by framing all material riches and physical well being as the goal of all rational beings. BUT, it never stops there. It continues to corrupt the mind and the soul to the point of rationalizing any action whatsover as "justified" in the pursuit of physical comfort and prosperity. Obedience to God's commands are gradually branded as "attacks" on our freedom or, as with the pseudo-Christians, demoniically inverted.

Evil is not static; it is dynamic. No one just stops at some point in their slide towards demonically aided and abetted soul dooming worship of the self. All of us in the thrall of self worship grow progressively more addicted to various forms of depravity until our consciense is so seared by sin that we are slaves to a plethora of morally reprehensible behaviors. We then become sworn enemies of God, some denying God's existence, while others often pretend to be His "instrument".

There is NO middle ground. Just because you don't enjoy snuff films and/or engage in serial adultery and just because you correctly and righteously parade against biosphere degradation and the evils of war does NOT mean you are any better than the pseudo-Christians who sin covertly, rationalize "just wars" and hypocritically ignore 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.

As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people
Proverbs 28:15 King James Version (KJV)



Proverbs 28:

23 He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.

24 Whoso robbeth his father or his mother
, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.

26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.

27 He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.





He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. --
Proverbs 28:13

God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.


Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.


They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.


I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.

Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.

Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof. Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice Before the Lord: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth. -- Psalm 96:10-13

December 31, 2018

I wish I could say that 2019 will be a year of prosperity for the world in general and the USA in particular, but I CANNOT SAY THAT. It is irrational to say that, given the current flowering of in-your-face evil at a level never before seen in human history.

The best outcome that you can expect in 2019 is a continuation of the destructive status quo worship of CAPITALIST PROFIT by those who corrupt the politicians who make the "laws", for the parasitic purpose of ruthlessly extracting the last bit of anything of monetary value from the biosphere, in general, and human society in particular.

The worst outcome you can expect in 2019 is that the Plutocratic Parasites begin a campaign to cull the human population in order to reduce the rate of biosphere degradation. Never mind that the 1% Plutocratic Parasites are the most massively biosphere trashing segment of the human population. That is not "relevant" to them. Plutocratic Parasites are quite practiced in blame the victim tactics.
 

Nevertheless, I do not think they will do that, at least not on a larger scale than they are now engaging in by doing all they can to "externalize" toxic pollution to the places the poor and middle class live and work in.

Sure, they have thought of it. However, the state of robotics technology has not advanced to the degree that it is cheaper to use robots for physically demanding manual labor, like harvesting crops, fighting wars, abusing minorites through fascist police murder, mayhem and other types of assorted brutality, deemed by the Plutocratic Parasites as "justified apex predator behavior" according to their Social Darwinist Satanic Religion.

Besides the cost issue, let us not forget that the sadistic abuse of fellow humans is a Demonic Joy these Plutocratic Parasites do not wish to dispense with any time soon.   

For these spiritually depraved Plutocratic Parasites, there is no fun in watching a robot get shorted out while picking cabbages in a rain storm. So, while the Plutocratic Parasites will continue to gradually add robots to their work force, they will always want humans "working" for them because these Plutocratic Parasites thoroughly dislike the idea of not having "lower class" humans around to push around, beat up, enslave, ra pe, kill, and so on.

Enslaving humans is a demonic practice. Therefore the Plutocratic Parasites, who are the chief servants/slaves of Lucifer on this planet, will continue it until Christ stops them, and not a second sooner.

Plutocratic Parasites pretend it is all about money. That is a half truth. To them, it is all about power over everything and everybody around them. IOW, they have a God envy. They deny it, but they are simply slaves of their STATANIC Religion. Lucifer is that fallen angel that wanted to be above God. THAT is the basis of all Plutocratic Parasite thinking.

That said, you don't need to have a lot of money to embrace demonic behavior. Too many people these days have been lured into embracing evil by the carrots and sticks that demons wield in this Valley of Tears. The "Christian" mega-churches in the USA are an excellent example of depraved humans who embrace all things ANTI-Christian, no matter who is hurt and no matter what the Holy Scriptures say, all so they can "prosper" economically.

The Apostle Paul accurately described the true motive of these heretics and contrasted it with the true motive of a Christian:

Quote
Philippians Chapter 3:18-21

18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

The bold faced heretics in these prosperity preaching mega-churches often quote Philippians Chapter 4:19, ignoring the message in the verses above and, more importantly, WITHOUT mentioning the even clearer message delivered in some verses (Philippians Chapter 4:11-13) a little before Philippians Chapter 4:19:

Quote
Philippians Chapter 4:19

19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Notice that the what God promises to supply to the believer is your NEED, not your GREED or your WANT. Often this NEED is not a material item at all, but some ADVERSITY and/or the LACK of material goods for the purpose of making your spirit grow. But, too many people are blinded by the clever (greed based) claim that hey, God is a really, really rich dude, so if I am promised according to HIS "riches in glory", that is a lot of MATERIAL PROSPERITY!

Now look at verses 11-13  🧐

Quote
Philippians Chapter 4:11-13

11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

You need to be strengthened if you are in adversity. Therefore the "all things" Paul is referring to are even more applicable to bad times than to economic prosperity.

In the light of the above, the true context of verse 19 becomes clear:

Quote
Philippians Chapter 4:19

19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

When these heretics prosperity preach about "doing all things in Christ", remind them that SUFFERING and ADVERSITY and WANT and HUNGER are OFTEN part of DOING ALL THINGS IN CHRIST. Who knows? It might even rip the money and power loving satanic blinders they wear with such hypocritical pride off of them.

If anyone still harbors doubts about what Paul means when he makes mention of how, and why, God uses His "riches in glory" (see: "glorious power") to strengthen Christians, Colossians Chapter 1, verse 11 should make it crystal clear that economic prosperity is NOT included. God strengthens us during, as well as through, adversity so we grow spiritually. The fruit of that growth is good works, NOT the accumulation of wealth.

Quote
Colossians Chapter 1:10-11

10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

So, what does all this have to do with the "End Times"? Plenty. The Holy Scriptures predict that a Great Falling away of the Church happens. Also, evil flourishes like never before. IOW, it reaches such "peak evil", so to speak, that the Tribulation Period of 7 years begins and the church is either removed miraculously from the planet OR, as many Christian Theologians believe, the true church is made mincemeat of, first by starving them out and then by beheading.

At the end of this ANTI-Christ blood and guts Plutocratic Parasite Paradise period, Christ returns to begin His physical reign for a period of time on Earth.

I expect that 2019 will be a bad year. However, as the Holy Scripture says, I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

If Christ gives my wife and I the strength to get through it, we will. Otherwise, we won't. To my wife and I, all that matters is that our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.

I post a lot of peppy stories about Renewable Energy. However, if the evil in this world of greed is not replaced by Christian Socialist ALTRUISM on a global scale, there is ZERO hope for our species in Renewable Energy. The problem is TOO MUCH EVIL, not LACK OF CLEAN ENERGY.

Jordan Peterson is BOUGHT AND PAID FOR by the Koch Brothers

Who is Jordan Peterson 😈, the ‘alt-right’ darling of YouTube?

Brenden Gallagher— Apr 30 at 2:00AM | Last updated Apr 30 at 8:45AM

SNIPPET:

If you hang around intellectuals or academics long enough, one of them will make the joke that they wish they were conservative because there is a lot more money in it. Jordan Peterson is living proof of that.

The Koch Brothers and the Heritage Foundation are eager to fund and promote the brightest minds conservatism has to offer. They intend to use the free market language of the right, there is a high demand for “intellectuals” who will defend conservative ideas, but there is a very low supply.

So if you’re wondering how 55-year-old Canadian psychology professor Jordan B. Peterson became an overnight sensation, going from obscure academic to international bestseller lauded in the New York Times 👹 as “most influential public intellectual in the Western world right now,” you don’t have to look much further than that old academic joke.

Jordan Peterson is famous because in the era of the resurgent alt-right, the loose collection of conservatives that align with white supremacists, there are few intellectuals willing to align themselves with the movement. The alt-right is in need of intellectuals to justify their fascist worldview, and Peterson has been ready.

Full article:

https://www.dailydot.com/layer8/jordan-peterson/

Agelbert NOTE: I repeat, Jordan Peterson is a stalking horse for FASCISM. He enthusiastically supports the Koch Brothers push to get Trump and his wreckng crew to eliminate Social Security and Medicare.

Ashvin, like Jordan Peterson, is also a Fascist Enabler, as well as a serial liar.

The POS people, like Peterson, who would wholeheartedly support the elimination of Medicare and Social Security for EVERYONE, not just the "off the rails" liberals, without blinking an eye, are TEXTBOOK FASCIST ENABLERS.

Another ardent critic of the "fascist" Peterson who hasn't read or listened to him. You guys write like you have been studying the guy for years and have become experts, but the content of you're writing betrays that you have barely looked into him for more than few minutes.

What is a stated above is FALSE - he has never said anything about eliminating Medicare or Social Security that I'm aware of. If you can come up with evidence to the contrary, we are happy to look at it. But we're not holding our breath.

The rest of your rant is completely irrelevant to this topic so I will ignore it.


Ashvin, please continue to "ignore" my "irrelevant" posts by POSTING a reply stating that you are, uh, simply insulting  me while studiously "ignoring" me.

YOU are the fine fellow that couldn't be bothered with reading my "behemoth" (your words!) article(s) several years ago, but here you are harping on people, as is your sophist wont, who "won't think deeply" or "bother to watch some video(s) you posted". THAT is textbook PROJECTION.

It is also a fallacious debating technique, but I'll let RE and Surly deal with your baseless complaints.

You have a track record, Ashvin, of NOT being objective on a plethora of issues. You have consistently sided with authoritarian (i.e. RIGHT WING = NeoFascist to Fascist) political and financial positions deleterious to the well being of the poor, minorities AND the average citizen in the USA of any color or ethnicty. You try to hide from it (as Surly noted) with some present guise of objectivity (see fallacious debating techniques), but it is generally accepted among people of average intelligence that if Ashvin walks and talks like a duck, (etc.). Most who post here are several points above average, so you will always have a difficult time playing your sophistic mind games in this forum.

As to your claim that I am lying, let us clear the air. YOU admire and support Peterson's "deep thinking" POV. THAT alone tells anyone with two brain cells two rub together that you and Peterson are birds of a political feather.

That doesn't mean you think alike in all areas, but, as Surly intimated, it produces a telling metaphorical odor. The "odor" has some characteristics that you can deny until the cows come home, but no one can take you seriously when you engage in said denials.

The tem "Politically Correct", when espoused, defended or originated by anyone (e.g. Jordan Peterson) is prima facie evidence of RACIST BIGOTRY. I am experienced hearing those too clever by a half ASSHOLES making the clever jokes and snide remarks about being "politically correct" in places I have worked. You KNOW THEM BY THEIR hateful, derisve, sarcastic, scorn filled FRUIT.   

In addition, Jordan Peterson does a lot of word twisting to get people to reject good government. Good government is what gave us Social Security AND Medicare. I stand by my previous statement that Jordan Peterson would DEFINITELY APPLAUD the elimination of these vital programs that HONOR the Lord Jesus Christ's teachings.

Thie following is a quote from an intelligent fellow who sees through Jordan Peterson's clever rhetoric.
Quote
Jordan Peterson: The social structure is corrupt and incomplete

Quote
Jimmy Owen

Social structures will NEVER be perfect, because they're complex and made up of people, and because they must balance competing but equally important values in an ever-changing world (e.g. freedom vs. security, rights vs. responsibilities, progress vs. stability, etc.) But social structures ARE necessary and valuable, and some are FAR better than others, so it's not axiomatic that you should tear them down.  American and Canadian societies, for example, are among the best, and most free EVER to have existed.  So, gain an honest understanding of their relative merits, and propose a BETTER ALTERNATIVE before you try to tear them down out of self-righteous indignation at the way you naively perceive things to be.

Proposing the DESTRUCTION of social structures is precisely what FASCISTS DO. ANYONE, like Jordan Peterson, wanting to take apart our social structures will enthusiastically support the elimination of social Security AND Medicare. You called me a liar, Ashvin. You are the liar.




Jordan Peterson is just one more large vocabulary stalking horse for FASCISM.

Quote
Proverbs 12:18 “There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.”

You and Peterson are among those that speaketh like the piercings of a sword. Have a nice day, Antinomian Heretic.
