The world does not demand that we be sane. They demand that we accede with their beliefs, and the reality that their beliefs are wrong, provably wrong, is immaterial.
It is not about the fact that ti is a lie. It is that they demand we accede to them. This is their power.
The invented world is all cardboard, window dressing, and stage props, of course, since it is fake, but no one is prone to look at it too closely, because they wish to be deceived. That is the beauty of self-deception. You cannot be undeceived unless you want to be.
The fake world is a very soothing world, for it has all the doctrines and dogmas of the Catholic Church, including guilt trips, confession, indulgences, and the eucharist of aborticide, as well as a promise of the New Jerusalem to come.
In the fake world, you may be required to confess fake sins, either things you did not do, such as commit White Privilege, or things no one can do, such as fail to save the Earth from the dread menace of global climate stasis. But real sins, such as fornication and lying, hatred and fraud, those are lauded and applauded, and you can call yourself brave for shocking Queen Victoria and her stifling moral purity. The days of oppression are gone! You just are no longer allow to use pronouns.
The fake world can sooth, but it cannot satisfy. The plastic food in the display cases will not nourish, if eaten, and if you marry a mannikin, she will not spring to life.
But it can tell you that you are alone, one sane man in a mad world, when, in fact, we outnumber them considerably.
The question is not what the fake religions and their rulers beleive, It is how much power we give to their opinion.
And the correct answer was shown by David. Give them no acknowledgement.
A Psalm of David, when he pretended to be insane before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed.
34 I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul will make its boast in the Lord;
The humble will hear it and rejoice.
3 Exalt the Lord with me,
And let’s exalt His name together.
4 I sought the Lord and He answered me,
And rescued me from all my fears.
5 They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces will never be ashamed.
6 This wretched man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him,
And rescues them.
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;
How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
15 Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength, and not just please ourselves. 2 Each of us is to please his neighbour for his good, to his edification. 3 For even Christ did not please Himself, but as it is written: “The taunts of those who taunt You have fallen on Me.” 4 For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. 5 Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another, according to Christ Jesus, 6 so that with one purpose and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
One of the things that happens is that if you do stand — and I’m not talking about the great and the good, but those of us who are sitting in the pews and praying to remain faithful — is that the taunts come hard and fast.
Our pastors and elders face the pressure from our converged, fake political class to accept their regulation.
But this we should not do.
We should not let their lies stand. Nor should we support their rituals of support.
We can ignore their taunts. We don’t need to be anywhere near the social fake media that those converged to the spirit of this age.
Because that is real and true is from God.
