Old Time Religion

Away with such an old-time Christianity!
Charles Ebert Orr – 1844-1913

Satan has robed a harlot, named her ‘Christianity’ and succeeded in imposing her upon many. They are fondling with her. She indulges them in sensuality, while encouraging them to hope for a blissful immortality. The kings of the earth have committed fornication with her. They are reveling, feasting and banqueting with her–crazed by her seductive charms. She has neither purity, peace, nor power. Her robes are defiled by sin. She scoffs at pure Christianity, and calls her old-fashioned.

This strange young woman is using every device to allure souls into her wanton chamber. She is most subtle of heart. She “flatters with her words. In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night–she walks in the streets, and lies in wait at every corner, that she might catch and kiss him who is void of understanding.” With a beguiling, impudent face, she says to him: “I have peace offerings with me; I have decked my bed with tapestry and fine linen of Egypt. I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. Come let us take our fill of love until the morning; let us enjoy each other’s caresses.”

Such is the mirthful, shallow, frivolous Christianity of the popular present day religions! The generality of professors (we speak in love) desire a Christianity which will go with them to the halls of pleasure; which will dine with them at their rich banquets; which will smile on them as they walk in the ways of sin and worldliness–calming their fears with her flattering words of ‘peace, peace’.

Primitive Christianity, they consider, was good enough for primitive days–but she would be a horrid old maid in these days of progress. In this fast-moving age, the Christianity that crowned the life of Christ and the holy apostles, is altogether too antiquated.

She drew men from the world; she crucified their lusts;she taught them to practice self-denial; she brought them in humility to her feet; she led them in the paths of virtue and holiness; she upbraided them for sin; she told them of the vengeance and wrath of God against every evil.

The Christian world today, in general, is saying, “Away with such an old-time Christianity! She has no charms for us! She is too common and plain–too grave and sober! We will not walk with her! Give us the mirthful and dashing young harlot–that we may walk with her amid the pleasures of the world, and with her gratify our lusts! She never chides us for sin, nor troubles us about the anger of God nor the torments of Hell. She invites us into her bosom and gives us a sweet opiate drink of ‘stolen waters’, and bids us take our fill of love.

We desire to tear off the sacrilegious robes of the harlot of false Christianity–and expose her shame to the gaze of every honest soul.

Dear reader, “Do not go after her! Do not let your heart incline to her ways! Do not go astray in her paths. For she has cast down many wounded–yes, many strong men have been slain by her. Her house is the way to Hell, going down to the chambers of death!”

Give me that old time religion,
Give me that old time religion,

It’s good enough for me.

On this day and every day –

God is in Control
. . . and His Grace is Sufficient, so . . .
Keep Looking Up


Hopefully, every Sunday, we can find something here that will build us up a little . . . give us a smile . . . and add some joy or peace, very much needed in all our lives.

“This day is holy to the Lord your God;
do not mourn nor weep.” . . .
“Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet,
and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared;
for this day is holy to our Lord.
Do not sorrow,
for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

A good analogy.

Nothing to see here. Just coincidence.

Vaccinating young people with first-generation COVID vaccines is going to be viewed as a TRAGIC WASTE in under a year. The new vaccines will have almost ZERO DEATHS.

DO. NOT. VACCINATE. YOUR. KIDS.

Wolf Moon

Trump TRIED to warn people! He TRIED to warn people. As much as he could, because he knew that if he warned too strongly, the media would DO THE OPPOSITE and make sure kids were FORCED to take the vaccine.

“As much as he could, because he knew that if he warned too strongly, the media would DO THE OPPOSITE and make sure kids were FORCED to take the vaccine.”

___________

Then why not take out the media?

I’ve seen the media, and they couldn’t even stand up to an unruly crowd, much less to a professional military.

This is the circle we always end up going around.

DJT is/was the Commander in Chief.

His job, among other things, is to protect and defend the Constitution, and by extension, the People by whom and for whom the Constitution was written to protect.

If he knows obvious things, like the vaccines are part of a DS plan to murder whole swathes of the population (if we know it, he must know it even better), and if he had the power to stop it (Madow, Barbara Walters, Juan Williams, these are scary people for sure, but no match for a cop with a .38 revolver, much less a division of United States Marines), then why didn’t he stop them?

He could have, easily, but he didn’t.

There has to be at least one really good reason why he didn’t.

What reason could there possibly be, that would justify allowing unknown numbers of women and children (and even men, the dregs of society) to be murdered?

There must be a reason.

And it must MONUMENTAL, in order to justify allowing to happen what is (and has been) happening.

And any reason so MONUMENTAL should be discernible, if not with specificity, certainly with generality.

There ought to be some outline, some context into which some kind of reasoning could ‘fit’.

But instead, we’re just left shadow boxing at nothing, there’s not even a vague outline of any reason that makes sense, to allow what is being done to us, to our country and to the world.

It seems to me the possibilities are in fact two:

He is in fact powerless to stop this (which kills the “this is just a movie” narrative, and any other variant that claims he’s really in charge)

OR

We are mistaken about the vaccines.

(And, technically, they could BOTH be true.)

____________

Except the POTUS is never powerless, and DJT had more power than any president in modern history.

.

“We are mistaken about the vaccines.”

____________

Which would require an enormous conspiracy… two actually. An enormous conspiracy across party lines to manipulate and falsely report data, and an enormous conspiracy across party lines to maintain secrecy about it.

SteveInCO

I was of course speaking of the present WRT POTUS, but your point is verrrrry interesting.

As for the vaccines, I suspect a lot of conclusions people draw are based on anecdote, not data.

scott467

“As for the vaccines, I suspect a lot of conclusions people draw are based on anecdote, not data.”

__________

It is likely impossible to draw conclusions based on actual data, because the actual / factual data has been and continues to be hidden and/or manipulated by known bad actors.

It is at least conceivable (though highly improbable) that people who believe they are neutral or even good actors could manipulate data with good intentions (thinking they know better what is best for us, so thinking that tinkering with the data, lying to us, would guide us in the direction they want us to go — which basically makes them bad actors, self-ascribed ‘noble liars’, who only think they are good actors).

But the people we are dealing with are known bad actors, so their motivations are conclusively bad (until proven otherwise, which happens never).

In the absence of factual data, and in the presence of known bad actors, inferring harmful actions by bad actors is a matter of survival.

Aubergine’s Razor becomes a matter of life and death.

……………
It is dangerous to attribute to stupidity that which could be the result of malice or guile.” – Aubergine
……………

When bad actors are doing things that could literally kill you (like pushing untested experimental vaccines), it is deadly to attribute to stupidity that which could be the result of malice or guile.

With known bad actors, if you do not automatically attribute to malice or guile that which could be the result of malice or guile, then you likely don’t get another chance to attribute anything, to anyone.

“The new vaccines will have almost ZERO DEATHS.”

New vaccines? As in boosters? Next gen Covid or manufactured plandemic?

Zero deaths, but sterilize or insert another health problem?

Wolf Moon

More info coming….

Wolf Moon

I’m working on the post now – hopefully up by morning!

scott467

“The new vaccines will have almost ZERO DEATHS.”

___________

It’s called Zyklon-C.

Twice the protection of Zyklon-B and only half the deaths (estimated, your mileage may vary). With Zyklon-C, you’ll only need 3 feet of physical distancing and you can wear your mask below your chin 👍 😁

“New vaccines? As in boosters? Next gen Covid or manufactured plandemic?”

__________

Brought to you by the same ideological multinational conglomerates who have already killed thousands.

The commercial trade name for the new vaxx is called JustTrustUs-RNA… 😂 😂 🤣

Visigoth leader Pelagius and his Christian army of just 300 men, won a decisive victory over a numerically superior mohammedan army at the Battle of Covadonga in 720. Before the battle, Pelagius prayed for victory in a cave where a hermit had hidden a statue of the Virgin Mary. In the battle the Christians made good use of natural defenses, and made a horrific slaughter of the enemy. This victory is regarded as the start of the Christian Reconquista of Spain from the mohammedan invaders. Pelagius credited the miraculous outcome to the intersession of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The battle is commemorated at the shrine of Our Lady of Covadonga.

Deplorable Patriot

The legend says that St. James the Greater led the charge. He’d been dead for over 600 years, but that never stops the saints.
