In the Essentials . . . Unity

Last week, we read about the need for Christians to return to an “Old Time Religion”, but, specifically, what might that entail?  What are the essentials or basic beliefs and practices of that Old Time Religion?

The following are two articles that address that topic.  I don’t intend for these statements to be taken as a complete statement of the basics, and I won’t defend them as such.  However, they provide a decent overview to address what Christianity is all about. 

Remember that Jesus did not present His gospel via a four-year intensive program of studies attended by the religious elite of the day.  Jesus spoke to be understood by the rough, hard-working people of that time and, specifically, to the sinners identified in that society.

As an example of the simplicity of our beliefs, we have the incident of the thief on the cross. That thief simply said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” And Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” No walking down front, no special prayer being sure to mention 3 or 4 things, no special blessing or approval by a high-ranking member of the local church, no special religious rites to be performed . . . nothing else. That thief simply trusted in Jesus.

“There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God.  All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.” Romans 3:10-12

And so it is today.  God’s Word does not need a host of religious elite to interpret and expound, seemingly without end, the intricacies of the Christian faith.  Christianity remains today as a set of core beliefs and practices meant to be understood, believed and practiced by the common people of our time.

At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight . . . Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:25, 26, 28-30

In the essentials . . . UNITY.
In the non-essentials . . . LIBERTY.
In all things . . . CHARITY (LOVE – Agape Love).

What are the essentials of the Christian faith?

The Bible itself reveals what is important and essential to the Christian faith. These essentials are the deity of Christ, salvation by God’s grace and not by works, salvation through Jesus Christ alone, the resurrection of Christ, the Gospel, monotheism and the Holy Trinity. These are the main “essentials” that we should understand and believe if we are followers of Jesus Christ. Let’s look at all of these in a little more detail.

The deity of Christ. Quite simply, Jesus is God. While Jesus never directly says, “I am God” in the Scriptures, He makes it very clear to those around Him, especially the Pharisees and Sadducees, that He is God. John 10:30 says, “I and the Father are one.” Jesus was claiming deity, and, interestingly enough, He did not deny that He was God. Another example is John 20:28, when Thomas says, “My Lord and my God!” Again, Jesus does not correct Him by saying that He is not God. There are many other examples one can find in the Scriptures regarding Jesus’ rightful place in heaven.

Salvation by grace. We are all sinners separated from God and deserving of eternal punishment for our sin. Jesus’ death on the cross paid for the sins of mankind, giving us access to heaven and an eternal relationship with God. God did not have to do this for us, but He loves us so much that He sacrificed His only Son. This is grace, and it is most definitely undeserved favor. Scripture tells us, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9). There is nothing we can do to earn God’s favor or gain access to heaven apart from His grace.

Salvation through Jesus Christ alone. A truly provocative question to ask someone might be “Do all roads lead to God?” The truth is that all roads do lead to God. Eventually, we are all going to stand before God when we die, no matter what faith we are. It is there that we will be judged for what we have or have not done while we were alive and whether Jesus Christ is Lord of our lives. For the majority of people, this will be a terrible occasion, as most will not know Him or be known by Him. For these people, hell will be the final destination. But God in His mercy has provided all of us the only means for salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ. Acts 4:12 tells us that “salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” This passage speaks of the name of Jesus and His saving power. Another example is found in the book of John. Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). No one gets into heaven except by faith in the saving work of the Lord Jesus Christ on his or her behalf.

The resurrection of Christ. Perhaps no other event in the Bible, aside from Jesus’ appearance here on earth and subsequent death on the cross, is as significant to the Christian faith as that of the resurrection. Why is this event significant? The answer lies in the fact that Jesus died and then after three days came back to life and rose again to reappear to His followers in bodily form. Jesus had already demonstrated His ability to resurrect others such as His friend Lazarus. But now God the Father had resurrected Him to display His awesome power and glory. This amazing fact is what separates the Christian faith from all others. All other religions are based on works or a powerless deity or person. The leaders of all other religions die and remain dead. The Christian faith is based on Christ crucified and resurrected to life. “And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:14). Lastly, to deny Christ’s bodily resurrection (John 2:19-21) is to deny that Jesus’ work here on earth was a satisfactory offering to God for the sins of mankind.

The gospel. In 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Paul spells out what the gospel is and how important it is to embrace it and share it with others. He reminds the Corinthians of the gospel he preached among them: “That Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.” This is the essence of the gospel. Paul also warns us to be wary of the many “false gospels” that are being offered to the unsuspecting: “But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:8-9). The pure gospel of Jesus Christ—His death on the cross for sinners and His resurrection to everlasting life—is central to the Christian faith.

Monotheism. Quite simply, there is only one God. Exodus 20:3 states very powerfully, “You shall have no other gods before me.” Monotheism is the belief that there is only one God to be worshiped and served. “‘You are my witnesses,’ declares the LORD, ‘and my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me’” (Isaiah 43:10). Here we see that we are to “believe” and “understand” that God lives and is one. A Christian will know that there is only one God, the God of the Bible. All other “gods” are false and are no gods at all. “For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many ‘gods’ and many ‘lords’), yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live” (1 Corinthians 8:5-6).

The Holy Trinity. While the concept of a “three-in-one God” is not represented by a single verse or passage, it is described frequently throughout Scripture. If we look at Matthew 28:19, we see the verse calling out the Trinity: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” While this verse mentions all three Persons of the triune God, it does not call them the Trinity. So to understand the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, we must look at the “totality” of Scripture and glean from it the definition. In 1 Corinthians 12:4-6, we see how this comes together: “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.” Again, we see all three Persons being represented but not titled the Holy Trinity.

Faith.  The essentials of Christianity would not be complete without the ingredient that binds everything together—faith. “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). As Christians we live by this verse with the understanding that we believe in a God we cannot see. But we see His work in our lives and all around us in His creation. We do all of this through faith because we know that faith pleases God. “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” (Hebrews 11:6).

What do Christians believe?

The core beliefs of Christianity are summarized in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. Jesus died for our sins, was buried, was resurrected, and thereby offers salvation to all who will trust in Him in faith. Unique among all other faiths, Christianity is more about a relationship than religious practices. Instead of adhering to a list of “do’s and don’ts,” the goal of a Christian is to cultivate a close walk with God. That relationship is made possible because of the work of Jesus Christ and the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

Beyond these core beliefs, there are many other items that are, or at least should be, indicative of what Christianity is and what Christians believe.

Christians believe that the Bible is the inspired, “God-breathed” Word of God and that its teaching is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

Christians believe in one God that exists in three persons—the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit.

Christians believe that mankind was created specifically to have a relationship with God, but sin separates all men from God (Romans 3:23; 5:12).

Christianity teaches that Jesus Christ walked this earth, fully God, and yet fully man (Philippians 2:6-11), and died on the cross.

Christians believe that after His death, Christ was buried, He rose again, and now lives at the right hand of the Father, making intercession for the believers forever (Hebrews 7:25).

Christianity proclaims that Jesus’ death on the cross was sufficient to completely pay the sin debt owed by all men and this is what restores the broken relationship between God and man (Hebrews 9:11-14; 10:10; Romans 5:8; 6:23).

Christianity teaches that in order to be saved and be granted entrance into heaven after death, one must place one’s faith entirely in the finished work of Christ on the cross. If we believe that Christ died in our place and paid the price of our own sins, and rose again, then we are saved. There is nothing that anyone can do to earn salvation. We cannot be “good enough” to please God on our own, because we are all sinners (Isaiah 53:6; 64:6-7). There is nothing more to be done, because Christ has done all the work! When He was on the cross, Jesus said, “It is finished” (John 19:30), meaning that the work of redemption was completed.

According to Christianity, salvation is freedom from the old sin nature and freedom to pursue a right relationship with God. Where we were once slaves to sin, we are now slaves to Christ (Romans 6:15-22). As long as believers live on this earth in their sinful bodies, they will engage in a constant struggle with sin. However, Christians can have victory in the struggle with sin by studying and applying God’s Word in their lives and being controlled by the Holy Spirit—that is, submitting to the Spirit’s leading in everyday circumstances.

So, while many religious systems require that a person do or not do certain things, Christianity is about believing that Christ died on the cross as payment for our own sins and rose again. Our sin debt is paid and we can have fellowship with God. We can have victory over our sin nature and walk in fellowship and obedience with God. That is true biblical Christianity.

* https://www.gotquestions.org/christianity.html


The church today is surrounded by, struggling with, and in many cases has been corrupted by, a liberal, secular culture and needs people who are not ashamed to proclaim the gospel of Christ. Truth does not change, and adherence to the essential or basic principles of doctrine is needed. These principles are the bedrock upon which Christianity stands, and, as Jesus taught, the house built upon the Rock will weather any storm.

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. (Matthew 7:24-25).


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.”

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Just in case this has not been dropped…..

The ASSISTANT WITCH of Michigan – Dana Nessel – is going after Sidney Powell.

Michigan is in CRIMINAL HANDS.

Exodus 22:18: “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.”

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

If a good long jail sentence chases out the demons, is she still a witch? 😉

cthulhu

Throw her in a pond to find out.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Aqueous exorcisms are deprecated!

cthulhu

It’s not an exorcism, it’s a diagnostic technique!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

LOL!

You know, I think it was satanic in origin, to kill a few witches for long-term sympathy. It’s so BAD and so un-Christian, it almost had to be diabolical in origin. Just hoaxy.

Christ was so skilled in approaching the demonically afflicted of all stripes. Unafraid, with an attitude of love and mercy to the victims.

cthulhu

I think the accuracy of such “diagnostic techniques” was rightly satirized in MP’s “Holy Grail”. It would be better to sit them down with DP’s favorite exorcist to be sorted and cleansed.

The language involved, however, calls for playful responses.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

“Amen”! 😅

Nessel better be careful. In any such confrontation, I would bet on Sidney Powell. How do you prove someone is lying when they have the proof that what they said is true? And if people are suddenly going to be sanctioned for supposedly lying, then they better round up the whole Biden administration and every democrat in office, including Nessel.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I think Nessel is scared ####less.

cthulhu

If she had 1/10 of 1/100 of an idea how this is being taken in the greater world outside the halls of government, she’d resign and run.

She ain’t scared enough.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. 100% agreed. She has no idea how LAWLESS this makes Michigan look.

I think all these people have no clue.

They’re pushing a “Polish fall of communism” into “Romanian fall of communism”, and it’s utterly needless.

cthulhu

Nice metaphors. Nicely illuminates the difference.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

FIB, the “Drama Club With Guns” of the Democrat Party, tried to do a skit for protection of ridiculous DNC tyrant governors, starring Witchmer as “Rebecca”, but when it was clear that the guy who invented all the hoaxy crap by the “Boogaloo Bois” was actually their own “””informant”””, I think it did incredible damage to the FBI. The FBI was literally engaged in political protection of Witchmer. SICK.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Indeed, this made me finally realize what is going on.

Marxism has caused the FBI to ABUSE informants down to the very definition. They are no longer being used for information – their value to Democrats has become what they can do in terms of “active measures” (KGB term) to advance Democrat ideology.

And then this explains why Wray protects Antifa and BLM as “ideology”, because HIS FBI is working “ideology”, too.

cthulhu

In other news, Boebert was feeling feisty:

There are 195 countries in the world. 194 of them don’t have the American flag. If @MacyGrayslife or anyone else hates the American flag so badly, they should pick a flag they like & go live in the country that flies it!

“Variants” have been oversold.
Everything We Know So Far About The COVID-19 Delta Variant

Linda

Wow. “Recent data from Scotland suggested that the risk of hospitalization doubled following infection with Delta (compared to Alpha), especially in those with five or more other health conditions.” If you have 5 or more health conditions, just about anything added could put you in the hospital. Could they be any more transparent?

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

The smart money on COVIDs is to catch the earliest version you can, and then “eat variants” for added immunity.

Deplorable Patriot

It’s the other health conditions that get you every time.

kalbokalbs

Aggressive treatment and folks seem to be just fine.

Fake news ought to point this out, rather than fear monger.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yes. Fear, the work product of FAKE NEWS.

Aubergine

Do you think they have any idea how DUMB they sound?

I mean, it’s just ridiculous.

“Ma’am, you have diabetes, heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, and cancer. You are at GRAVE RISK from the new Covid variant!”

If it wasn’t affecting the world so horribly, it would be hilarious.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

This is an absolutely great point.

And the HORROR is that the communists, including both the ChiComs and the Democrats, figured out that (literally) decimating old people who were teetering on the edge of their hard-won and long-paid-for “retirement mortality”, with a “new” variant of a zoonotic virus that they could make “catch” in humans, was literally a path to power.

The War on Retirees. First they steal your money. Then they kill you and tax both the survivors and your estate.

Democrats.

Aubergine

They are monsters.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I can just hear Cuomo saying in his mind “What’s so great about old people? Old people were never great.”

They PLAYED US for the sympathy THEY didn’t have, and a CRITICAL point was isolating the “elders” FROM US, so that those elders could not correct things. MEDICINE was used to impose upon THEM.

Evil Chinese Communist genius, understood from their own Cultural Revolution.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Think about how they leveraged our SYMPATHY for old people to HELP KILL THEM.

Aubergine

Oh yes. And they are still trying to do it, with the fake poison injections.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

“The DELTA vvvvariant is swwwwo dwwwangerous to CHCHCHCHILDRENS!”

And then the FAKE NEWS covers for NURSING HOME KILLER with a psychological operation – a KISSING SCANDAL.

The idea that future variants of viruses are more lethal, actually goes against the Theory of Evolution.
How can the virus survive if it constantly and more aggressively over time, kills its host? It should become more transmissible and less lethal and not more.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

You may have hit on a kind of proof that CHINA is behind the variants.

In answer to your question, why would it become more lethal – only if a “higher” intelligence TRAINS IT to become more lethal – if they REWARD IT. If they DESIGN it.

Which is precisely what Democrats and the CCP did.

And this is how to both politically and biologically stop the “fake evolution” – BLAME CHINA.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Thank you! This is a fantastic point, and explains everything I reasoned before, in not believing that the South African variant was natural in origin.

And all of this goes back to what Yan said, about how the ChiComs TRY to make things look natural.

Oh, the ChiComs are so evil.

Emeraldstar

>>”How can the virus survive if it constantly and more aggressively over time, kills its host? It should become more transmissible and less lethal and not more.”<<

The virus survives when it’s kicked, by the so-called “vaccines”, into mutating much more quickly to survive.

Hence the “variants” and their increased effectiveness / debilitation in the host.

Recently, I read that there are over 14,000 variants of the coronavirus. By attacking only ONE strain, the “vaxxes” degrade the ability of our natural immune system to combat all OTHER strains.

Nature always wins. Kick her, and she’ll kick back harder.

There’s a *reason* why there hasn’t been any “cure” for the common cold – Nature is too adept, too adaptive.

I’m reminded of that George Carlin clip, in which he avers that interacting with the “dirty” environment conferred to him the best protection against it.

I’m also reminded of a Star Trek TNG clip, wherein the solution was to DO NOTHING, rather than to oppose an incoming energy wave with the shields (greater energy). A feed-back loop resulted – using more power to the shields, for each successive reflected wave, gave greater power to the subsequent wave.

The same goes for the false strategy of “attacking” the virus – it just resurfaces more strongly. Bit by bit, all measures used to combat it become ineffective, PDQ.

The true strategy – of doing nothing – ISN’T what the Enemy wishes to do.

Here’s the TNG clip, to illustrate the idea:

You’re spot on here.

There’s no reason, evolutionarily, that a virus couldn’t spread like wildfire and kill 99+% of its victims.

Sure, if it does that it won’t be around next year, but right now it doesn’t know that and it certainly doesn’t care. It’s living high on the hog right now and able to reproduce and that’s what natural selection responds to. Evolution has no foresight whatsoever.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

The craven idiot CCP likely has some really nasty bugs “in the can”. They decided they could get away with milder “sociobiological warfare” now, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have something with higher lethality on hand.

A great strategy for an evil adversary would be to release a bullshit like SARS-CoV-2 and then vaccinate their own against SARS-CoV-3 under cover of doing so for 2.

I’m afraid the CCP is just trouble for this world.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yeah, this is exactly what all those highly-placed vaccine expert whistleblowers are saying. A general mass-vaccination strategy is “anti-effective”.

THE VACCINE IS THE PROBLEM. REFUSE IT ON SCIENTIFIC GROUNDS.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

OK – this has been played before, but the last 15 minutes of this is phenomenal. It not only reveals some of Dr. Peter McCullough’s deepest thinking on COVID and the vaccines – the discussion reveals (1) scientists are being intimidated, and (2) the GATES FOUNDATION is behind a lot of the nasty tactics.

‘You have lied to me’: 9-year-old girl puts Minnesota school board to shame over BLM posters
June 19, 2021 | Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

https://www.bizpacreview.com/2021/06/19/you-have-lied-to-me-9-year-old-girl-puts-minnesota-school-board-to-shame-over-blm-posters-1091304/

A 9-year-old student in Lakeville, Minnesota savaged the school board there for blatantly lying about not allowing Black Lives Matter posters on campus due to their political nature.

“The other day I was walking down the hallway at Lakeview Elementary School to give a teacher a retiring gift. I looked up on to the wall and saw a BLM poster and an Amanda Gorman poster. In case you don’t know who that chick is, she’s some girl who did a poem for Biden’s so-called inauguration. I was so mad,” the child began in a video posted on social media.

“I was told two weeks ago at this very meeting spot, no politics in school. I believed what you said at this meeting, so at lunch I went up to the principal to tell him about the BLM poster and that I wanted it down,” the young girl stated at a school board meeting on June 8.

Showing more spirit than most adults, she continued: “I was stunned. When I was here two weeks ago, you told us to report any BLM in our schools. Apparently, you know they’re in our schools because you made the signs.” When she questioned why they were there when the school board previously banned the posters, the principal told her they would not be removed and that the school board themselves were the ones that put them up.
The student emphasized that she does not see skin, hair, or eye color and that she judges her friends on what’s inside instead. She referred to Reverend Martin Luther King’s premise that one should be judged by their character and not the color of their skin.

She bluntly called the school board members liars.

“You have lied to me and I am very disappointed in all of you,” the girl chastised. “You can’t even follow your own rules. If you’re going to do that, why do we follow any rules we deem unfit or ridiculous? I’m not following your mask rule anymore then.”

The little girl ended with an admonition: “Get the posters out of our schools. Courage is contagious, so be courageous.”

Pence threw Trump under the bus in exchange for support from GOP super donors.
Super donors promised to back Pence for a 2024 presidential run.
Pence now goes around doing talks on a pseudo-campaign trail.
He thinks he has a chance. 🤣

Judas returned the silver he took for throwing Jesus under the bus.

Comparing Pence to Judas is disrespectful of Judas.

At least Judas may have felt remorse, being as he hung himself.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Oh, he has a greater chance than he should.

The establishment within the GOP no doubt favors him and they know how to fix the voting machines in the primaries.

So his chances of being the nominee are excellent…as long as you don’t add the qualifying word “honestly.”

Thank you for the link.
It is ** interesting ** that, unless I missed something, the doctor does not mention these:

The documented (and growing) number of cases of “sudden stroke” / brain fog / “sudden” and severe symptoms of vertigo, that occur after getting the “vaccine”;
The documented (and growing) number of severe reactions or death after getting the “vaccine”;
The documented evidence that the Pfizer and Moderna “vaccines”, using the mRNA envelope/”delivery system”, compromise male testes and female ovaries;
That the “reported events” to severe reactions or deaths from the “vaccines” to VAERS is very likely only a small percentage of the actual occurrences;
And, very importantly, the doctor NEVER mentions the use of HCQ + zinc + Ivermectin to either AVOID getting infected with the Wuhan coronavirus, OR to “short-circuit” the effects if one does get infected.

And then, there’s the video clip from the angry Dr. Leana Wen, included in the article, with her pushing very hard, again, for “universal vaccination”. Nobody in the lying MSM seems to know, or to care, that Dr. Wen is associated with the China Medical Board and with the Brookings Institution (which is working in collaboration with the Communist Chinese government to “jointly address” the issues of the Wuhan coronavirus).

Felony?????

Happy go lucky

Maybe a felony because the cost to repair “damages” is greater than a set amount? For instance, in VA damage repair greater than $1000 is enough to flip it from misdemeanor to felony.

Seems like darn near everything can be termed a felony nowadays.

IF. THEY. WANT. TO.

But kill a person for “Democrat reasons”, and they will STRUGGLE to find a misdemeanor, and better yet dropping of charges and release on personal recognizance!

Start a national “Pardon List” for Trump’s return to office, and every Patriot on the list for bogus charges by the criminal government gets an instant pardon.

It can also be used as an encouragement to participate in tar & feather events when the time comes, if everybody knows they go on the ‘Pardon List’ for engaging in patriotic behavior and resistance to the criminal government.

Make it a point of honor and pride to make the “Pardon List”.

Turn fear of what the government will do into national recognition of courage and people will WANT to do things to get on the list. 👍

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow, that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me.

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, amen.

Thank you, Bakocarl! Lately, I have begun to comprehend that when Jesus died for our sins, he must have suffered not just his own death. The punishments for each of us must have gone into and through him while he was on the cross. The concept is so overwhelming as is my gratitude to Jesus for dying for you and me. We are so blessed.

I checked with my bank to ask some questions about ‘Safe Deposit’ boxes a few months ago, and they emailed me their legal disclaimer.

Among other things, there is a $25K limit on the value of the contents, there is no insurance on the contents (then why do they care about the value?), and the bank is not liable if the contents disappear.

So I emailed the bank lady back, and said Wow, the lawyers have been hard at work on the disclaimer, but they forgot to change the name from ‘Safe Deposit Box‘ to ‘Danger Deposit Box‘.

She didn’t reply, so apparently she didn’t think it was nearly as hilarious as I did… which didn’t bother me at all, because I thought it was hilarious whether she did or not… probably even funnier if she didn’t… 😂 🤣 😂

DM article tells the dramatic story of the two women who created the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine. 🙄 🤨🤔

Now, in a compelling new book, Vaxxers, they tell the breathtaking story and relive the high-stakes drama as they strove to produce a vaccine in months – something that normally would have taken years.

Creating a vaccine is a bit like a dressmaker making a couture garment.

Think of it as like a baker who sells personalised cakes iced with personalised messages, such as ‘Happy 50th birthday Joe’.

If she bakes a batch of cakes, she can save time dealing with a shop customer by just having to pick up her piping bag and adding the customised message while they wait.
But since we could not be sure this rapid method would work, as back-up we also started using the more traditional, slower technique in a separate lab.

To continue the baking analogy, this was like making the cake (ie the starting material for the vaccine) from scratch for each customer – only after having discovered the new pathogen and established its genetic code.

This may be EXTREMELY USEFUL in going after China, because these would be what I would call “targeted influencers in the victim population”. These are people who needed to PERCEIVE a high threat – which the CCP provided. They were also people who needed to be REWARDED FOR FEAR – which was provided in the target population.

Wait, isn’t this the same AstraZeneca “vaccine” that was just discontinued for use in the EU on people under age 60 because there were too many reports of severe reactions and deaths among that age group after getting the injection? And this same “vaccine” is somehow considered to be “safe” to use on people over age 60?

Fathers Day makes me think of those who did not have a loving father. He was not there, or he was there but would have been better gone. There is much suffering caused by the absence of a loving father. That void is a destructive one.

Valerie Curren

Daddy issues abound around. My husband, who had a mostly absent father first due to divorce & his mom moving him 1000 miles away & later to death, really experienced God as his Father. I had an intact family w/ a godly, though authoritarian father, who helped & hindered me in numerous ways.

God’s grace is sufficient & love covers a multitude of sins. The enemy of our souls loves to attack families & fathers appear to be the most common bullseye zone…God can restore what was lost or stolen, but we live in a fallen world & will Always need grace to survive & thrive!

While I could easily believe this of her there is no record of her saying this and no witness reports that I could find.

https://americansforabetteramerica.com/?p=138340

TheseTruths

I have strong doubts. And there are mistakes:
● “Constitution” is not capitalized. If it were a real quote from even a mainstream news source, I think it would be capitalized. Nor do I think a news source would place the period outside the quotation marks.
Incomplete sentence: “They really don’t get.”
“Reins” is misspelled.

This sentence does not make sense: “After Joe inflicts the death blow, I’ll take the reigns [sic].” If Joe were vacating the office, he would not be the one inflicting the death blow; it would instead be inflicted on him.

Of course, if the argument is that this was transcribed from audio, that would explain the errors.

Linda

I have a feeling that if it’s true, it was said to a private audience, such as to big dollar donors or other apparatchiks. I was just curious if it was actually out there in the public domain.

This site says she said it and there was CNBC video but it’s been scrubbed. When you first acces the site there’s a link to the video in English and then it quickly changes to Chinese. If you click on it the link before it changes from English to Chinese it takes you to a Chinese site.

Sweetie, You posted a link that has Zero to do with the above meme. I have tried to help you + stop others from being misinformed by your mistake.

Instead of saying, “Oops! thank you for catching my mistake” you act as if you have a legit, correct point to make and I am somehow missing it.

And now you, sadly, make it personal.

Cool off and read the meme and read your link. Two different things. That is all I am pointing out.

Again, your post and link have Zero to do with the fake news meme about Harris that was originally posted.

Competely article from your link:

“CNBC News
Kamala Harris:’After We Impeach, We Round Up The Trump Supporters’

Updated on May 1, 2020 by admin

Shocking words were heard at a Democrat fundraiser for criminal justice reform yesterday from presidential hopeful, Kamala Harris.

While giving a speech on the effectiveness of zero punishment prosecutions, she veered off script to talk about impeaching our president and describe in detail one “crime” she would not hesitate to punish, to the absolute delight of the liberal crowd.
“…and in conclusion, I am confident that if we stop being mean to these poor souls, they will come around and be productive members of society. There are no bad people, only bad judicial systems. That’s a whole new story that shall be written later.
(How about those words “only bad judicial systems, etc.)

Of course, there are exceptions. Like Cheeto. He’s just bad and we will impeach! There is so much evidence against this guy, the mind boggles.

And once he’s gone and we have regained our rightful place in the White House, look out if you supported him and endorsed his actions, because we’ll be coming for you next. You will feel the vengeance of a nation. No stone will be left unturned as we seek you out in every corner of this great nation. For it is you who have betrayed us.

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.
You like that s**t? It’s from some crappy, old book. That’s about Trump and his enablers. I use things like that when I run out of things to say.”

It seems that Kamala Harris plans to send those loyal to the president to concentration camps or something similar. We must be vigilant and see to it our rights are not removed by the Democrat menace.”

What point?

You posted a link that had Zero to do with the meme/question at hand.

I wasted my time clicking your link to learn more only to learn it was worthless to the topic at hand and shared that to save others time and to let you know.

Next time, just say, “Oops, I made a mistake and thanks for taking the time to look it up and share” instead of getting upset with me for trying to save others time and more error if they share the fake news meme.

Did you get that point?

You seem to be ignoring that you were wrong … why?

Aubergine

The point, which you are just not paying enough attention to catch, is that it takes you from English to Chinese and back again.

So it is probably disinformation, possibly from China. That’s the point.

You just have to be a higher-than-mighty ass about everything. It is extremely off-putting, which is why most here don’t like you. If you weren’t working so hard to be “right” all the time, stuff like what Holly posted probably wouldn’t fly right over your head.

Are primaries held for county, city/town and or school board in your county? Are any of these elections “non partisan”, ie no primary and everyone listed on the general election ballot as (I)? 

If you have no primaries for these categories of elections is that by state law or other reason? 

++++++++++++
The below applies only to TN specifically and explains how TN works (more details but this is the big picture). Other states will work differently. Learning how one state works will (hopefully) encourage others to learn how their own state works, get involved to make an impact and change how things are being done as needed and make sure local politics is influenceable and politicians are held accountable.

Its worth learning how things work in one’s state and county. Only when one knows how things work can one effectively get involved and have an impact for good.
++++++++++++
In TN, by law, county and judicial elections can have a primary but they do not automatically have a primary at this time. 

By law, school boards and city elections can not have primaries. Those laws are fully expected to change next year as legislation will be introduced to turn school boards partisan, with primaries as an option.

In Tennessee it is up to the CECs to call for a primary. If you live in TN, is your CEC calling for a primary? 

CEC = County Executive Committee of the respective parties. 

(Who is on the CEC? I can not speak for the Dems but for the TN GOP the CEC consists of the duly elected officers of the county Republican Party, the 2 SEC* members for that county and presidents/chairs of any other Republican groups in that county such as the Republican Women, Young Republicans, College Republicans, etc.)

Republican CEC or Dem CEC can call for a primary and then there is a primary that all may participate in, Dems, GOP and Greens, etc., as long as they meet the county and the state standards for getting on a ballot.

In 2020, only 33 of 95 county CECs did not called for a primary. 

As of right now only 25 of 95 have not called for a primary and the deadline is still 2 months away. 

If a CEC does not call for a primary and school boards are changed to partisan the county deadlines will have past to call for a primary (August 23 of this year) and the counties that do not call for a primary will be left out and their school boards will once again only appear in the general with (I) by all of their names.

2022 is also a judicial election year which only comes every 8 yrs. If the county CECs do not call for a primary the various judges and attorneys will appear in the general only and will have have an (I) by their name.

Small rural counties are resistant to change due to those in office not wanting it changed and all Ds in office not wanted to loose as almost Every district goes Red. Plus it does cost the county money to run a primary for county offices in non Presidential election years (which 2022 is) as it is a stand alone election. During a Presidential election year, the primary for local offices is added to the Presidential primary in March.

The concern that the primary will cost $ is sometimes answered by the CEC choosing to hold a caucus which costs the county nothing. The judicial caucus would need to be separate than the county offices primary as they have different rules. Judicial primary is Complicated … and I already think a “regular” caucus is Intimidatingly complicated!

Downsides to a caucus (in my opinion): Detailed rules, many hours of organizing and needed volunteers to run & many are “disenfranchised” because they don’t realize it is happening (despite the best efforts of the party to get the info out on local radio, in the local newspaper and on social media) and many can not come at the particular time chosen because it is a one time event unlike voting with early voting hours and an all day election day. (running them incorrectly leads to lawsuits and so much hassle and yet there a thousand details … STRESSFUL)

Upside to caucuses (in my opinion): They tend to elect more conservative candidates as only those very interested show up to vote & they cost the county nothing so the county gov doesn’t complain about the primary.

*I have posted on the SEC before. If you missed that post and are curious, I am happy to explain. 

MAGA Mom

And yes, this is example 47 of why we all need to be involved in our local (county and state) GOP as we Loose our voice in numerous issues, remove our opportunity to impact change and forfeit these decisions to the RINOs, “insiders” and professional political class who don’t want things to change. If you are involved then you would have voted for your CEC, would know (or should know if you elected MAGA/America First/grassroots activists and grassroots representatives to your CEC and SEC.

If you are not involved, forfeited your right to vote and choose leadership, etc., then complaining about “the” GOP is really just talking about something that you might have influenced but didn’t bother. 

Too many died and sacrificed for our Right to be involved and our Right to vote that doing so actually feels like a Responsibility and Obligation to those who have come before me as well as a Precious Gift and Privilege! 

If I don’t vote then I feel I have no right to complain about those who bothered to show up and get involved voted for and elected. And, even better, is to be willing to stand for election within the party and take the responsibility to be a grassroots leader speaking for the grassroots voters.

If you haven’t gotten involved before now … start today, tomorrow or the next day.

Politics is local and we have to be the changes we want to see v. complaining about what others who bother to volunteer, bother to show, bother to vote are doing.

In almost every county (certainly Every county in TN) there are already many America First/MAGA activists involved and even elected to leadership who would LOVE the help and NEED the help as they can not do it alone, or even small groups. They need majority votes to make the changes and decisions we all want to see in our CECs and SECs (other other names in other states for the equivalent).

TheseTruths

If you are not involved, forfeited your right to vote and choose leadership, etc., then complaining about “the” GOP is really just talking about something that you might have influenced but didn’t bother. 

With all due respect, this is the kind of rhetoric that turns people off. I think I understand where you’re coming from and I believe you are passionate and mean well, but what you wrote sounds blaming. To say that people “didn’t bother” is to make a judgment about them that you have neither the knowledge nor the right to make. Leading people is an art. Put-downs will not get you very far.

I agree that the more we can all be involved at every level, the better.

MAGA Mom

Facts or Feelings, Complaining but inaction …

President Trump is often said, even among Republicans tho have “rhetoric that turns people off”.

Did people bother to get involved or not?

If people do not make time to vote, to get involved, then YES, they ARE part of the problem just as surely as they who do not get involved with the elections and on the issues are part of the problem.

It is NOT a “put down”. Either people bothered to get involved or not. Either they take “spare” time away from leisure, hobbies, home, garden, family and friends and get involved to some degree or they don’t.

It is merely a fact: Those who are not attending the meetings and voting for leadership (much less volunteering and being leadership) are making a difference on the issue of GOP actions, decisions and leadership.

And all of those who are not part of the solution are dependent on those who are volunteering, who are “bothering” and who are willing to sacrifice and take the time to make a difference on these issues.

If not enough MAGA/conservative grassroots bother to get involved then nothing will change, the useless complaining will continue and MAGA/Conservative grassroots volunteers giving their all, those who are Bothering, are left defeated because too many would rather complain, be angry and yet not both to do the actions and spend the time needed to help those who are pouring their lives into making a difference.

Bothering … yes, it Bothers me when I am spending 25-30 hrs a week (occcassionally less, too often more) specifically on this work (not including the “relaxing” time messing on the internet reading the news and staying informed such as now) and meet SO many who act like they care, who say they care, who complain and yet are no where to be seen when it is GO time to make a difference.

Housewife, homeschool mom, intervert … now, public, Often attacked (in real life) and under MUCH pressure (in real life) for exactly what everyone posts here that we “need” to do or that “the” GOP needs to do … and yet WE are the GOP *if* we Choose to be. Heat exhaustion last weekend, IV fluids on Monday, long day for prep for event Tuesday, more work Wed – Fri (average 6 hours during the day, 8 hrs fri), event Thurs pm, from 4-11 pm, fell in bed a midnight, Saturday afternoon event that was Big (for me, a little fish in a little pond) and MUCH Stress and personal attacks. Fell into bed at 7 pm last night and slept until 1:30 this afternoon with 2 one hour “breaks”.

Yes, I Bother to work and Do the things we all agree need to be done in the local politics and to try to impact the GOP. I am exhausted as are many other MAGA workers across the state and across the nation.

It is up to US! Frustrating to see so many who are so well informed in my own community not taking action and doing the necessary work to effect the changes we all agree are needed to save our country.

To all readers: JOIN US and HELP US WIN. Many are trying but need more votes to win.

I could not have predicted that someone could have missed the point by such a wide margin.

It’s intentional.

MAGA Mom

As intentional as you completely missing the point again and again that your link has ZERO to do with the meme?

MAGA Mom

I would not have predicted that anyone would miss the point of learning more and making a difference about primaries (and numerous other things that the CECs and SECs do across the nation) and would instead focus on the offensiveness of the word “bother” or the message that we need to be involved and those who aren’t involved are part of the problem and bear responsibility for why the GOP is the way it is.

Sad if a little langauge turns people off v. reading the info, looking up how things work in their state and making a difference.

Seems like latching on to an excuse to not be involved.

TheseTruths

I would not have predicted that anyone would miss the point of learning more and making a difference about primaries

But I clearly did not miss the point. Read my post again.

MAGA Mom

OK

Curious – when we Many speak of those who do not bother to vote or bother to be informed on the issues or bother to support the candidates, etc., is that use of “bother” equally offensive and counter productive?

I have heard and read Many use word when describing those who don’t bother to vote and yet continue to complain and continue to be frustrated with the results.

Is using the word “bother” in that context offensive and counter productive? Or does it describe those who are so unmotivated to actually take the time to vote and yet wish and complain things were different?

How ought the behavior of those who don’t bother to get involved, don’t bother to show up and don’t bother themselves vote be described?

If people aren’t bothered enough by what is happening to do something about that will actually change things … smh

If you are already “smh” before I even respond, then I don’t think you are interested enough to listen.

I made a point, which you ignored completely; yet on this same page you castigated holly for purportedly ignoring something you said.

Tempest in a teapot over the word “bother” and the general description of apathy in many who wish and complain that things be different but don’t actually learn how to make them so and then do something about …

Hope a little bit more explaination on how things work in TN and the encouragement to learn how they work in reader’s own states will lead some to at least be curious enough to learn more.

If one knows how the CECs (or whatever they are called in your state) are elected and what the CECs responsibilities are and how many things they control/impact then some will start to become voting members, Vet those running for CEC offices and/or maybe stand for election themselves and have a direct vote on many issues.

Same with the SECs (again, probably, almost certainly called other things in other states and have different responsibilities and control in different ways or even over different things). When we know how they work and who they are, we can target frustrations, actually Be the GOP and impact the county and state parties.

By default, controlling the CECs and SECs will control the RNC.

Again, I have explained the SECs and the RNC before so do not want to bore but if anyone is uncertain I can share what I know from my own state and that will at least get you started for your own state + the RNC is universal.

Fair points:
“Ironically, Juneteenth is a celebration grounded in the Republican ideals of equality and freedom. In fact, the Republican Party was founded upon the back of the abolitionist movement in the United States. Historic figures such as President Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and Harriet Tubman were all members of the anti-slavery Republican Party. Their respective legacies and pioneering achievements continue to inform the Republican Party of today.

Just a year ago, I was working with several black conservatives to design the Platinum Plan with the Trump Administration that would bring over $500 billion into the black communities, further criminal justice reform, enhance Opportunity Zone funding, small business funding and yes, declaring Juneteenth a National Holiday. President Trump understood the importance of Juneteenth and he grasped the importance of helping to bring freedom to so many who have received excessive incarceration.

I did not hear a single conservative speak out against Juneteenth when it was announced in President Trump’s Platinum Plan. Now that it has been passed by Democrats, some conservatives have changed their minds and their rhetoric. This hypocrisy is at the core of the spirit division in our nation. We cannot define our truth based on political parties or man-made ideals. That is not patriotism.

Yes, we can celebrate the abolition of slavery in America and still celebrate our nation’s independence, they are not mutually exclusive. Patriotism is celebrating our country’s freedom from the tyranny of Great Britain. Patriotism is celebrating that America was one of the first major world powers to abolish both slavery and colonization. Patriotism is embracing the celebration of freedom based on righteousness, not ideals.”

Just for the record you can see that President Trump called for making Juneteenth a National Holiday. No where will you find the extra gratuitous words “Independence Day”.

The national holiday could of been called just “Juneteenth” or “Juneteenth Emancipation Day” but the left chose to call it and Congress passed “Juneteenth Independence Day”.

So now we have before us dueling Independence Days. Anyone who understands the Left will know this was tossed in to both cause strife by dividing us as well as diminish the importance of the 4th of July so as to strip away patriotism from the people.

So what is to be done about it? Ignore and educate are the only good answers but regardless the spike to drive us apart has been driven home and it will be pounded and pounded as often as possible for the desired effect bringing disharmony and strife to this nation. No right thinking, learned person would equate the two with out a lot of qualifiers, but left thinking persons will just take the short road and call you a “Racist” if you don’t and eventually the real Independence Day will be kicked down the rabbit hole.

Excellent points! Sharing to the original source for the above …

MAGA Mom

Father’s Day is a federal holiday because of the universal need and love for good fathers. Good fathers are needed by our children, our families, our communities, and by our nation.

From the linked article:
“In Ship of Fools, Fox News host Tucker Carlson points out the consequences of fatherless homes. Boys who live with only their mothers as parents tend to cause more trouble in school. They’re less inclined to graduate from high school or attend college. They’re more likely to live in poverty, less likely to get married, and far more susceptible to drugs and alcohol. “As adults,” Carlson says, “they’re twice as likely to go to prison.”

“When was the last time you heard an establishment figure decry the out-of-wedlock birthrate?” Carlson asks a couple paragraphs later.

This is an excellent question. Why indeed do our political and cultural leaders ignore the importance of marriage and fatherhood? These are two foundational stones for any culture, yet our elected officials, Democrats and Republicans alike, rarely bring this topic into the public forum. They debate critical race theory, transgenderism, gun control, and our failing schools ad infinitum, but almost never speak a word promoting the benefits of marriage or fatherhood.

Neglecting these essentials has consequences. In Chicago this year, for example, the overall crime rate declined, but the number of shootings soared in comparison to 2020. Commentators and analysts search for ways to explain this upsurge in violence, but few ask this question: How many of those shooters grew up in a stable, two-parent home? How many of those young men pulling the trigger had no father to guide them as children and teens?

The same may be said of some students in our failing schools. We blame the teachers or the school administrators for the students’ poor performances in the classroom, but surely some of the fault lies in our broken families.

Until we rebuild the family, we can’t truly rebuild the culture.

Like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, the third Sunday in June, is a federally recognized holiday.”

From the article linked below, mulitiple studies support each of the following:
1. Children who spend more time with their father are smarter.


2. One of the best predictors of a child’s linguistic skills is the father’s vocabulary.

3. An involved father makes a child more curious.
4. Children who play with their father have better social skills.
5. A supportive father makes a daughter more responsible.
6. Children with a father present are healthier.
7. Children with absent fathers can face many negative consequences.
8. A father gives a child confidence.
9. A child’s closeness to their father is a better predictor of happiness than closeness to their mother.
10. A father’s love is as important as a mother’s love

Again, each of the above points is discuss in detail with studies to back up the points. This is the summary of what the points are. good article.

The ultimate goal of every totalitarian system is to establish complete control over society and every individual within it in order to achieve ideological uniformity and eliminate any and all deviation from it. This goal can never be achieved, of course, but it is the raison d’être of all totalitarian systems, regardless of what forms they take and ideologies they espouse. You can dress totalitarianism up in Hugo Boss-designed Nazi uniforms, Mao suits, or medical-looking face masks, its core desire remains the same: to remake the world in its paranoid image … to replace reality with its own “reality.”

We are right in the middle of this process currently, which is why everything feels so batshit crazy. The global capitalist ruling classes are implementing a new official ideology, in other words, a new “reality.” That’s what an official ideology is. It’s more than just a set of beliefs. Anyone can have any beliefs they want. Your personal beliefs do not constitute “reality.” In order to make your beliefs “reality,” you need to have the power to impose them on society. You need the power of the police, the military, the media, scientific “experts,” academia, the culture industry, the entire ideology-manufacturing machine.

There is nothing subtle about this process. Decommissioning one “reality” and replacing it with another is a brutal business. Societies grow accustomed to their “realities.” We do not surrender them willingly or easily. Normally, what’s required to get us to do so is a crisis, a war, a state of emergency, or … you know, a deadly global pandemic.

During the changeover from the old “reality” to the new “reality,” the society is torn apart. The old “reality” is being disassembled and the new one has not yet taken its place. It feels like madness, and, in a way, it is. For a time, the society is split in two, as the two “realities” battle it out for dominance. “Reality” being what it is (i.e., monolithic), this is a fight to the death. In the end, only one “reality” can prevail.”

The trouble is, we need to stop this process in its tracks, immediately.

There CANNOT be a “New Normal”, as that will mean no possible turning back or return to the old normal, i.e. NORMAL.

This process of cognitive dissonance and dissociation is what cults, commies, and “groomers” use to trap and control their victims.

DON’T LET IT HAPPEN!!!!!

We kids once got the box that a windshield came in similar to the one above. we got inside too and rolled on the corners until they were smooth and then stayed inside to roll down the hill at my aunt and uncle’s house. Great fun!! Love my dear dad!

St. Louis Couple That Pointed Guns at BLM Protesters Boast New AR-15 Days After Surrendering Their Old Weapons
By Katherine HugginsJun 20th, 2021, 7:06 pm

https://www.mediaite.com/online/st-louis-couple-that-pointed-guns-at-blm-protesters-boast-new-ar-15-days-after-surrendering-their-old-weapons/

Mark McCloskey and his wife Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who gained notoriety after pointing guns at Black Lives Matter protesters, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges and agreed to surrender the guns the pair used in the confrontation. Two days later, the McCloskeys boasted purchasing a new AR-15.

Mark McCloskey posted two images of him and his wife purchasing a new gun on Twitter, writing, “Checking out my new AR.”

On Thursday, the couple entered a plea deal that includes the misdemeanor charges, a total of $2,750 in fines, and the relinquishing of the two weapons the couple held last summer.

The incident occurred on June 28, 2020, amid George Floyd demonstrations in St. Louis during which protesters entered a private gated neighborhood while walking to the mayor of St. Louis’ home. The McCloskeys stood in front of their house and pointed guns at the protesters, arguing that they were protecting their home from the crowd. Although no shots were fired, the couples’ actions gained national attention and sparked controversy.

Mark McCloskey, who is currently running for Senate, expressed little regret over his actions in a video posted after pleading guilty on Thursday, which featured the couple holding guns in front of a campaign banner.

“Any time they come to threaten me, I’ll do the same thing again and again and again to protect myself, my home, my family, and our rights as human beings,” he said.
