In New Zealand, the rulers we have hate Christ and Christianity. They will lie, they will disparage, and they will say we are marginalized, ignorant, and needing their enlightenment. Despite the demonstrated fact that they are lazy, ignorant, incompetent, and have no understanding of how poelpe react to being told, over and over, how to think.
They say that we should be kind. Not to be racist. To be tolerant. But this is what they call kindness and tolerance.
Health Minister Chris Hipkins has said some of the 43 people linked to the Mt Roskill Evangelical Fellowship church cluster in Auckland were sceptical about the seriousness of the pandemic, as church and community leaders say they face a battle to check the spread of false information.
Pakilau Manase Lua grew up in the Seventh Day Adventist church and said his own friends and family were guilty of spreading conspiracies and false information about Covid-19.
"I've personally received lots of private messages regarding information that people think is useful but is purely disinformation, either about the virus itself or fear around the vaccine," he said.
Lua, who is the chairman of the Pacific Leadership Forum's Pacific Response Coordination Team, said this spread was especially rife among those with links to conservative evangelical or pentecostal churches in the United States.
"It's been spreading like wildfire through social media."

Media chaplain and Wesleyan Methodist minister Frank Ritchie said some ministers were losing the battle to stem the flow of misinformation amongst their congregations.
"What I'm seeing is ministers who are doing the right thing, but their people are being indoctrinated online."
Some congregation members were angry their minister did not agree with what they were reading on the internet about Covid-19, he said.
A study by Te Puunaha Matatini found there was a spike in mainstream media coverage of conspiracy theories following the outbreak of Covid-19 in August.
Researcher Kate Hannah said they were often spread by marginalised people who were historically distrustful of science or government.
But there was hope.
"Good news spreads just as fast as bad news does on social media and on mainstream media.
"So we can share and talk about positive things that help people reinforce their trust public health interventions."
I grew up in South Auckland. I spent a fair amount of my teenage years in the church, and that involved interfacing with the Pacific church, where the minister was also the chief, and the congretation dneeded to do what he said. That church ossified and forgot Christ, and my generation was the first to move -- Palangi (NZ Europeant) included.
I did not leave the Presbyterian Church, it left me. They have gone liberal: they now will regulate all thought because they have taken the ticket. The mainstream schools, such as Scots College have "Pride Weeks" as mandated by our new, degenerate, rules on sexuality education -- all about made up things such as gender diversity and homophobia, and not about honour, fidelity, chastity and waiting until you have a ring on it.
God bless the boys in Scots College. Like the our Pacific Brothers, they are being betrayed by their leaders.
A Wellington school has criticised the actions of students who used homophobic language and images in videos posted on social media.
The posts were uploaded by one student, and shared across Instagram over the weekend.
It followed Scots College's inaugural Pride Week, organised by the school's Queer-Straight Alliance (QSA), which included events such as a mufti day, and form group activities.
On Friday, a number of images and videos from one student's Snapchat account began circling on other social media.
The videos and posts showed some students using homophobic slurs, and using rainbow-flag stickers in inappropriate ways.
In one post, there was the caption "Boycotting Gay Pride Week 2020", written in rainbow-coloured writing.
"Overall, I've just been really disappointed that this could happen in my school, and these people are my peers, that have these views," said Eleanor, a Year 12 member of the QSA, who helped organise Pride Week.
"I struggle to think how these people can have blatant disrespect towards a community."
She said it overshadowed what was otherwise a positive and successful week.
Scots used to be a boys only college. Kea tells me that it is now fallen, and the Scots that was the brother school to Queen Margaret (the one school she enjoyed) has fallen, I agree. The rot starts when you let the girls in, and the rancid rainbow follows.
Like Kim du Toit, my morning libation helps now. But worship helps more.
8 The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
9 He will not always strive with us,
Nor will He keep His anger forever.
10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him.
12 As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
13 Just as a father has compassion on his children,
So the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him.
11 For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another; 12 not as Cain, who was of the evil one and slew his brother. And for what reason did he slay him? Because his deeds were evil, and his brother’s were righteous.
13 Do not be surprised, brethren, if the world hates you. 14 We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death. 15 Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. 16 We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
They hate us because we are of Christ. They will destroy our churches by requiring that we have licencedd teachers and let the pagan families in to counter-evangelize. They do not mind the Islam for it is heresy against Christ.. Because they over estimate their knowledge.
Most of those who do so claim it is evidence based, but they don't know science, or the law, or have ever been involved in the hard graft of scholarship and experimentation. They do not know real evidence. They call what is within their ideology such. there is a word for this: Lysenkoism.
The idea that the world would best be run by a class of intellectual elites and “experts” is hardly novel or original. The Greek philosopher Plato theorized that until philosophers were kings, cities would never have rest from their evils. He believed these men alone were immune to the corruption of power and money that came with politics, and thus the only group capable of leading men into virtue and ultimately “the good life.”
This strain of idealism has manifested in many ways throughout human history, but at its heart, it is based on the belief that a special class of men (the intellectuals, the scientists, the philosophers, etc.) could function as the “high priests” of society, dictating the lives of everyone “below” them who are too ignorant to know what is best for them, or would lack the moral fiber to do what is right without “persuasion.”
For anyone not belonging to this class of elites, thinking would then become a luxury—potentially even a liability—but certainly not a necessity. Obedience is all that matters in such a state; one man becomes the conditioner, the other the conditioned.
While the dangers of such a state are obvious, they are compounded by the unique moral and philosophical landscape of modern society. What we see today is a compartmentalization of the different aspects of human thought and life. Science, like so much else, is divorced from the greater context of history, philosophy, ethics, and religion. The science of relations has been forgotten. Judgments of value are at times dictated by a soulless, truncated principle, often devoid of ethics.
This is become a wall of text. To summarize.
- Our current elite is aligned with the rancid rainbow, the spirit of this age, which is Satanic
- This includes many of the lite in the church and their traditional institutions, such as church schools
- Those who are not of Christ have always hated the things of Christs
- The current fantasy that our techocratic rulers car be more rational in their policy was an error when Aristotle described it and nothing there has changed.
- The fear of COVID shows a lack of moral courage: the pandering to the screeching minorities instead of loving them and truthfully explaining the consequences of their actions is the same
- Our elite therefore are foolish, cowardly, and arrogant. Nothing attractive there. Do not be pike them, and do not be part of them
