I learned something today. I was unaware that there were dissenting academies in England, particularly in the North. until Dr Charlton informed of such. In the past, the nonconformists did build educational systems to a very high standard. We may need them again: the regulators are destroying what used to work and asserting their unproven solutions will be better. This destructive creation has too frequently no creation: the proposals are stupid, facile, or a fraud. The destruction is all to real.
For we should never forget that the elite of this world got there by being aligned with Satan. They consider only the short term, and do not want to see their fate: if not blinded they blindfold themselves.
And step confidently into the abyss.
10 “Now I will arise,” says the Lord,
“now I will lift myself up;
now I will be exalted.
11 You conceive chaff; you give birth to stubble;
your breath is a fire that will consume you.
12 And the peoples will be as if burned to lime,
like thorns cut down, that are burned in the fire.”
13 Hear, you who are far off, what I have done;
and you who are near, acknowledge my might.
14 The sinners in Zion are afraid;
trembling has seized the godless:
“Who among us can dwell with the consuming fire?
Who among us can dwell with everlasting burnings?”
15 He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly,
who despises the gain of oppressions,
who shakes his hands, lest they hold a bribe,
who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed
and shuts his eyes from looking on evil,
16 he will dwell on the heights;
his place of defence will be the fortresses of rocks;
his bread will be given him; his water will be sure.
16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17 These things I command you, so that you will love one another.
18 “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. 21 But all these things they will do to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have been guilty of sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 Whoever hates me hates my Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works that no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin, but now they have seen and hated both me and my Father. 25 But the word that is written in their Law must be fulfilled: ‘They hated me without a cause.’
If you are of the world, your pecadillos are covered. as long as you are useful. But then you are damned, drppped, destroyed and done. The world’s love is fickle, and if the results of your decisions lead to disaster, you will either be removed for cause or encouraged to join your Master in the life infernal. (Joe Biden is an exception, yes, but he’s too far gone to understand the scorn and contempt).
If you stand for truth and honour and integrity, the elite will not let you be part of them because they have nothing on you. They want you compromised.
Besides, Roosh reminds us that the world’s measure of success is not that of God.
It’s no surprise that events which have been spiritually successful for me have been abject failures in the material sense. For example, in the past, I never had problems finding a place to live. I’ve rented dozens of rooms and apartments, and only when my reputation as a “pro-rape advocate” hit Google did I hit some comical snags that in the end were manageable. But since becoming a Christian, I can’t seem to settle down. It’s been two-and-a-half years since I received God’s grace and I write this article from the confines of my mother’s apartment, and yet it’s while living with her that the path to being received in the Orthodox Church opened for me. To most of the world I am middle-aged loser, and yet my faith keeps growing, and my salvation is more assured.
As long as I maintain my faith during a stretch of material failure, my faith will be increased, while periods of material success that lead to comfort will have the opposite effect. Therefore I’ve had to reformulate how I approach “failure,” the definition of which was cemented into my brain from secular life, and how to gain the will to proceed with a spiritually profitable task where material failure is inevitable. Satan’s success and God’s success are different, so it would make sense that all the outcomes that happen as you go from worshipping one to the other will also begin to change in shape and meaning.
The world will hate you. The world will account you as a failure and discard you if it can. Because if Christ is in you, the Holy Spirit is in you, and that spirit will offend their demons.
