Christianity is not a theoretical practice, and I’m writing this on a day where (at some point) I’m going to go and read some systematic theology before posting it. It is not enough to read about prayer: you need to pray. It is not enough to consider charity, you have to be loving.

And it is not enough to virtue signal, you have to be like Christ: holy. In my experience, true virtue is hated and punished by this world.

Remember this: the demons know more systematic theology than you do.

17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! 20 Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works; 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God. 24 You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. 25 And in the same way was not also Rahab the prostitute justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? 26 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.

James 2:17-26

At the moment I have a pile of tabs open as people discuss all kinds of things: the progressive project is returning to the camps, there will be digital passports, and I fully expect a black market in Melbourne next year, if not this, starting with false vaccine passports. Those who promote the destruction of our society will be supported. But we are being micromanaged.

If the person concerned with say an obscure ACT List MP (ie someone with no real power or influence), you can bet that TVNZ and all other mainstream media would be running this for days on end as a major story. But instead, they all ignore it.

So what should we do? We should do as Christ did. We should be honest. When we make mistakes — I made one yesterday and had to correct a post after Cam Slater made a comment — we fix them. We should care for our families. We should pray. We should do real good — locally.

We should not align with the state, for it lies. They will demand that you follow their agenda.

And we should expect it to cost. Put some cash away and build your networks. There are plans for a two tier economy. Do not be part of that the elite approves of. It is time for nonadherence. So we do not do evil.
