I live in a country where the left has complete control of the corridors of power. The Labour and Green coalition can and will ram any laws they want through the one house of parliament: they can over rule the supreme court, and all the courts and institutions are staffed by people who support them..
However, there is no peace. Instead, there are ritualized confessions of guilt, protests, defense of riots in prisons (we had one over summer, and th eposters are up around town). There is demand that the cursad continues. On a walk this week I saw a sign
“Jacinda: Covid hero! Climate hero?”
I did not photograph it. We are in a time of suspicion and hatred. Instead, I have purged my social media profile. We are seeking not to be angry, but peace.
One thing I’ve noticed from the Legal Legion’s battles is that the more angry, shrill, and threatening the other side gets, the closer they are to complete collapse. You’re not seeing most of the comments being left here by the shills and blackpills, but I’ve started saving them for future amusement in the event that things don’t turn out the way they all purport to believe.Vox Day.
The peace of God at this time is a witness. The other side will rage, and demands that we join them. We will not. For we will bought with a price, and that was the blood of Jesus shed for our sins.

Almighty and everlasting God,
who dost govern all things in heaven and earth;
Mercifully hear the supplications of thy people,
and grant us thy peace all the days of our life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
12 “All things are lawful for me”, but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me”, but I will not be enslaved by anything. 13 “Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! 16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.” 17 But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. 18 Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.1 Corinthians 6:12-20
43 The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him of whom Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” 46 Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming towards him and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!” 48 Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” 49 Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” 50 Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree’, do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” 51 And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you] you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”John 1:43-51
A day or so we were in the grocery store and Kea asked the lady who was scanning the groceries how things are going. She said people were like zombies and she did not understand it. She said that they buying crazy amounts of things, because they feared the COVID mutation and did not trust the press telling them it was OK. She did not understand Kea when she said we don’t watch the TV news.
People are escaping into their vices: gluttony, lust, envy. They are getting more toys. My son says that CES this year was a tech lover’s desert, but all the companies were saying it was such a good year because of peoples need to distract themselves. And Zoom, the new way of social non contact.
What I am seeing right now, is not rational. Rationality left the barn a while ago and has bolted some miles away. I am seeing any voices that discuss the truth being shut down.
If you spend your time chasing thots on Instagram, or on dating sites, you are not aligning with a woman of God. You are aligning with someone the whores of Paul’s time (a fair number of whom were slaves) would call a greater sinner, for they chose that life.
Every vice has an industry supporting it, with the tacit approval of the rulers of this age, for it keeps you quiet, through your guilt and shame.
It is better to be on your knees. Shun them. And instead, aim to be an Israelite who does not need to be a weasel. Lying, for you have no ability to provide beyond beyond the next pay date.
The crisis is here. We need to ignore the screams of the enemy and the vices that distract us, and instead seek the peace of god. .
