The doofus PM of our nation does facebook, including live chats. Relentless possividity. Despite the news. This morning we look at the scripture, and note that Naham said that Babylon itself would fall and the nations of the empire would be no more, bcecuse God would bring his own out of there.
This will mean the defeat of those who promote evil. That they will be lost: their postmodern synthetic tribe will disappear.
Yesterday Peter Grant linked to this, and it is good description of how wokedom is based on a lie. It is not real, but the revolution our PM is trying to mandate is ruinous.
For many of them the philosophy could not be wrong. Its promise was too beautiful to abandon. Facts? Irrelevant! Logic and reason? Meaningless! And so the Progressive Modernists became the Postmodernists: Nothing can really be proven. Everything is relative, subjective. Feelings are more important that facts. Everything has hidden meanings because of the inherent conscious and unconscious biases of their creators, you just have to deconstruct them to find those real meanings. The curtains are never just blue. Two plus two doesn't necessarily equal four. In other words, "My mind is made up. Don't confuse me with the facts." Or, "I reject your reality and substitute my own equally valid one!" Or "That wasn't REAL Communism!"
They turned their belief into a faith, a religion, with a garden of Eden (pre-civilization Earth), an original sin (either capitalism or slavery, depending on who you ask), a savior (Karl Marx), and a path to righteousness that would lead back to Heaven. They didn't seem dangerous, after all they were college professors, teachers, journalists, managing editors, writers, producers, entertainers, et cetera, but they were in the driver's seat when it came to affecting culture and they were by Marx going to proselytize.
And so they passed that irrational, dangerous faith on to the next generation, and that generation passed on an even more virulent version, and the current generation born near the turn of the 21st Century is the recipient of two generations of Progressive Postmodernist evangelism, expanded exponentially. When the Soviet Union finally collapsed in 1989, it didn't matter to the Progressive Postmodernists. That wasn't REAL Socialism. They'd made that decision over twenty-five years previously. Nicaragua! It was going to work there! Failure. Venezuela! THAT was going to be Real Socialism! But it failed horribly too. Nobody changed their minds. It could work HERE. It was too beautiful not to.
I should add that I don't do facebook: facebook should disappear. I don;t advocate revolt against our rulers. We have an election coming. Anything these people support, from Netflix to their rancid rainbow, we should oppose.
Because we will all be held to account. If we say we believe in Christ, we better act that way.
14 The Lord has issued a command concerning you:
“Your name will no longer be perpetuated.
I will cut off idol and image
From the house of your gods.
I will prepare your grave,
For you are contemptible.”
15 Behold, on the mountains the feet of him who brings good news,
Who announces peace!
Celebrate your feasts, O Judah;
Pay your vows.
For never again will the [f]wicked one pass through you;
He is cut off completely.
2 The one who scatters has come up against [h]you.
Man the fortress, watch the road;
Strengthen your back, summon all your strength.
2 For the Lord will restore the splendor of Jacob
Like the splendor of Israel,
Even though devastators have devastated them
And destroyed their vine branches.
Our enemies howl when they are held to account. They dislike it when we turn from the sins they are promoting. And we must. For we are Christ's witness. If we are to be preserved by him, we must live for him.
13 This is the third time I am coming to you. Every fact is to be confirmed by the testimony of two or three witnesses. 2 I have previously said when present the second time, and though now absent I say in advance to those who have sinned in the past and to all the rest as well, that if I come again I will not spare anyone, 3 since you are seeking for proof of the Christ who speaks in me, and who is not weak toward you, but mighty in you. 4 For indeed He was crucified because of weakness, yet He lives because of the power of God. For we also are weak [d]in Him, yet we will live with Him because of the power of God directed toward you.
Do not look at appearances. Do not listen to those who are called the great and the good: their secrets will be shouted to their shame from the rooftops. Do not rely on the pastorate for it is too often converged.
Instead turn to the word of God and the spirit of God. he will preserve you and he will be your anchor. The storm is now. But God is greater than the storm.
