Your wealth and the number of women in your life will not save you. If you are a leader of men now, then you will find wealth provided you do not let your vices or the advertising seduce you into wasting your money: women have been as attracted to power as men are to youth.
Solomon managed to get the economy of Israel booming. But he listened too much to the pagan women, and that ruined Israel. For they wanted to do what they felt was correct.
What they felt was correct was evil. As this age is.
Listen therefore to Brother Adam.
We need to burst this illusion once and for all. This ship won’t be righted. Western civilization has been a dying old man since the Great War. Our culture is already over, it’s just that the vast majority haven’t accepted that yet. What we think of as our civilization is merely the last remaining embers waiting to be finally wafted away in the coming awful wind.
In his comment Rabuti also stated that having children is now suicidal because the young kid can come home declaring that he wants to have his dick cut off and parents are now legally obliged to do so. He is correct. But this is just a statement in support of the fact that our society is over bar the shouting. You don’t have kids to feed them into the dying meat grinder. You have kids to start up what comes next.
We are living in a truly awful predicament because we are witness to our civilization dying but we will not be witness to that which comes next. Any cursory glance at history will confirm that; the timelines do not lie. It will likely be a few hundred years before something will rise from the ashes of what is presently falling down around us. This fact instills fear and hopelessness in those caught up in its inexorable denouement. And that which is dying always seeks to destroy that which will come after it. The snake is most dangerous the very moment after its head is cut off. The Nazi regime killed more of its own people in the final six weeks of the war than over the entire length of the war before it.
Agree. I have grandkids who live in the land of the woke, where the pickup truck of peace is used by both sides. Where your skin or faith is now your uniform. And I worry about them. They don’t live in a big town, and I praise God that all my progeny bar one live out of areas with populations over 1 million — I worry that 120K in the region I live is too large, even though we now have to travel for health care to the one big city in the South Island.
26 And Solomon gathered together chariots and horsemen. He had 1,400 chariots and 12,000 horsemen, whom he stationed in the chariot cities and with the king in Jerusalem. 27 And the king made silver as common in Jerusalem as stone, and he made cedar as plentiful as the sycamore of the Shephelah. 28 And Solomon’s import of horses was from Egypt and Kue, and the king’s traders received them from Kue at a price. 29 A chariot could be imported from Egypt for 600 shekels of silver and a horse for 150, and so through the king’s traders they were exported to all the kings of the Hittites and the kings of Syria.
11 Now King Solomon loved many foreign women, along with the daughter of Pharaoh: Moabite, Ammonite, Edomite, Sidonian, and Hittite women, 2 from the nations concerning which the Lord had said to the people of Israel, “You shall not enter into marriage with them, neither shall they with you, for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods.” Solomon clung to these in love. 3 He had 700 wives, who were princesses, and 300 concubines. And his wives turned away his heart. 4 For when Solomon was old his wives turned away his heart after other gods, and his heart was not wholly true to the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father. 5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. 6 So Solomon did what was evil in the sight of the Lord and did not wholly follow the Lord, as David his father had done. 7 Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, and for Molech the abomination of the Ammonites, on the mountain east of Jerusalem. 8 And so he did for all his foreign wives, who made offerings and sacrificed to their gods.
4 By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks. 5 By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. 7 By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.
We should be careful here. The sacrifice we make is worship: part of worship is giving. This requires that we attend how we can, when we can church. The closure of churches is a scandal, agreed. But we can worship away from a church building, and we should worship daily.
The secular elite will allow BLM marches, and marches to save the enviroment, for that is their religion. They will regulate the church thinking that the visible buildings and managers in this world are what matters: to use the analogy of Solomon, they want to turn us from worshipping the true God in the way he wants to the abominations of Molech (materialism) and Chemosh (erotic perversion). One sacrificed children for career: the parallels to abortion are obvious. The other is resurrected in pride month.
Solomon let the people he loved — and he loved many women — drag him away from what he should be doing. Such as cleaving only to those who were godly. This leads to despair. Rabuti, a commentator at Adam’s place, gives us an example here.
As of writing, the state I live in mandates classroom education for all children, five days a week, for 13 years, in a woke socialist curriculum. If I had a son who came home one day and said he wants to transition to being a girl then I am not legally allowed to do anything other than say “sure thing. I completely affirm your decision!” and make a booking for the next-available dick-chopping surgeon. I live with an unmarried partner who, bless her, is too naively mired in LGTBQ propaganda to entrust with kids in case it ever came to backing me over state brainwashing. Not ideal, maybe I should’ve been more careful when I was single, but here we are. Then there is also economics (woeful), then there is environmental concerns (overpopulation, the emasculating 5G concrete jungle)
I’d agree here with Brother Scott, who gives blunt advice. The first thing I would do is pull the kids out of school: if that is not legal where you live, move to where it is. School Teachers and Social Workers want the right to mould your kids regardlless of what you or your wife say.
Find a different partner or women start to see things for how they really are when they start popping out kids and realizing all their stupid beliefs will affect their children.
You won’t have kids because they’re expensive? Seriously? The poorest americans have it better than 99% of the history of humanity.
This reminds me of Kea, when discussing women around her age — those who don’t have children have no depth and balance and need it. Yes, I know many women who can’t have kids and would desperately want to have one. But our society demands that we either do not have kids or sacrifice them to the Gods of the woke.
Which we should not worship. Yes, the world is going somewhere bleak. But we walk by faith, and not by what is on TV.
