The World is not your Friend

I wonder what Dr. Tozer would think about the churches that are bending over backwards to accept and endorse sin. Would he take special note of the fact that they are “wise in their own eyes?” Makes me think of another voice from years past that said the church’s mission and message is, “carrying the message of the unsearchable riches of the gospel of Christ to the suffering, discouraged, sin-sick souls and to every heart that hungers for cleansing from sin.”

Socialism? Marxism? BLM?

I wish to pose a question about socialists couched in their history and current conduct….

Hitler’s Nazi ism….Socialist. Tried to kill many in pursuit of their perfect world.
Lenin and Stalin’s Communism killing to bring the world under their system of government.
Mao’s Communism and the many killed and suppressed to maintain that system.
Che Gueverra’s Communism and the 14,000 he killed to promote his socialism.

Of the ones listed above who sought to implement by force their Socialist Utopia. There are very many others not mentioned here.

Currently we have….

Venezuela….grinding poverty and killing.
Cuba…grinding poverty and nailing of those who oppose the system.
BLM calling for killing cops and whites. Admitted Marxists.
Antifa calling for killing cops and whites and Capitalists. Admitted Marxists pretending not to be fascists just like Hitler’s Antifa thugs.

Again many are not mentioned here that are still around oppressing their people and others.

Now establishing that I ask…..

When this is pointed out to modern socialists who buy the lie of kumbaya yah pie in the sky uptopian lies that socialists decieve with, the responses are typically from them that socialism failed cause the wrong people were trying to implement it. And that the current present socialists are the right people to do it cause of their good feeling and good intentions. Really? I’m pretty certain the previous examples thought they were the right people in their time to promote Socialism. I’m pretty certain many of them thought they were “good” people with good intentions. Yet in retrospect look how history, genuine history, remembers them.

I think seeing what we are seeing in the news each night about the rioting, destruction, looting and murdering people as acts promoting their movement is a clear cut sign that this is no different that what came before when trying to establish socialism upon us all. By force. The killing and calling for all whites to be killed should be evidence and proof enough that their socialism this time will be no different than the previous attempts to force socialism upon everybody and kill the undesirables like they did before.

This pretty much clinches the fact that socialism is a system of hate, bigotry…and death. Practically all the previous attempts to force it testify to that. And the current crowds rioting and “protesting” also testify to that. I’m certain all these previous attempts saw themselves as good people with good intentions to make a better world. I’m certain they felt good about what they believed to the point they were willing to kill to force it on others.

Many ask how come average Germans did not stop Hitler from coming to power. Look around at what’s happening today. The bullying of Antifa and BLM killing people is no different that Hitler’s Brown Shirts led by Ernst Rohm. And the people did nothing hoping to be left alone and stay out of it.

History repeats itself. Evil prevails when good men do nothing.

I’m so confused right now. I see signs all over saying black lives matter. I’m just trying to figure out which black lives matter. It can’t be the unborn black babies. It’s not black cops. They don’t seem to matter. It’s not my black conservative friends. They are told to shut up if they know what’s best for them by their black counterparts. It’s not black business owners. Their property does not mean anything. It’s not blacks who fought in the military. Their statues are destroyed by the black lives matter protesters with disdain. So which black lives matter again?
Black Lives Matter. Of course they do! Then when multiple black police officers and individuals were killed during the “peaceful protests”. I don’t see any outrage? Black individually owned businesses burned to the ground. Silence. Deadliest weekend in Chicago. NOTHING!!
I can’t keep up. I just can’t. I’m exhausted trying to figure out what we’re all supposed to do, believe, and be offended and outraged by next.
Two months ago, First Responders were all the rage. In fact, they were heroes. We gave them free coffee, meals, and cheers as they drove by. Today, we hate them and want them defunded because they can’t be trusted.
Two months ago, truck drivers were the heroes, as well, for keeping America moving and the grocery stores stocked. Today we block the roads with protesters, drag them out of the cabs and beat them half to death.
Nurses and Doctors are still cool, for now. But they may be unemployed. They too are heroes, unless of course they truly believe all lives matter. Then they’re filled with hate and are part of problem like so many others.
Just 45 days ago protests weren’t “essential” and were considered criminal, selfish and a murderous activity. Today they are gloriously critical and celebrated. All of the obvious criminal and murderous activities are simply ignored. If you protest about lock downs for freedom, you are selfish and you will spread a virus. If you protest, loot, and riot for social justice, you are a warrior and the virus fades to the background.
Trust the experts. No, not those experts. Don’t wear masks … wear masks, but only good ones. Wait, don’t wear masks, wear anything as a mask. Never mind on the masks. Not sure, but if you don’t, you hate people because you could be an asymptomatic spreader. Wait. That’s not a thing anymore?
For 3 months, NOTHING was more important than social distance. In fact, we gave up all of our liberties for it. We canceled schools, medical and dental procedures, canceled activities, closed businesses, eliminated every spring rite of passage from prom to graduation, denied people funerals, even at Arlington, and we wrecked the economy for it. Then came social justice, and social distance was no more. Now things are more cut and dried though. A thousand people at three memorials for someone they never even met. It’s a matter of “respect”. But you can only assemble 100 or less people.
I’m really confused now. Look at the data, NO, not that data. Do the math. No, you can’t do the math like that. Only the experts can understand the data and math. What do you mean other cities/states/governors are interpreting the data differently? Pools are safe in Indiana, but not Michigan? Playgrounds are safe in your town but not mine? Amusement parks are safe in Florida but not Ohio, nor Michigan.
If you are silent you are part of the problem. If you speak, you are part of the problem. If you have to ask, you don’t understand. If you don’t ask, you don’t care.
It’s all so predictable, tedious, and exhausting. Nothing adds up. It’s one gigantic Math life problem, with ever changing denominators that I’m sure the media and politicians are eagerly ready to solve for us…until the next “crisis”.
So, for now I pray. I pray God will heal our land and bless the United States of America! Bless us with Wisdom, Kindness, Gentleness, Mercy, Love, Peace, Healing. Things that Really Matter! We all Matter in God’s Eyes!

Hope in the Midst of Chaos

Our country has erupted in chaos. Everyone agrees that what happened to George Floyd was a terrible tragedy that should not have happened and should never happen again. But what has taken place with these riots is also a heartbreaking disaster for so many and for our nation.

I was asked if I was offended by the President walking out of the White House, which is his back yard, and walking over to St. John’s Church. Offended? Not at all. This made an important statement that what took place the night before in the burning, looting, and vandalism of the nation’s capital—including this historic house of worship—mattered, and that the lawlessness had to end.

And I’m not offended that he held up the Bible—as a matter of fact, I was encouraged! I appreciate it. I believe that God’s Word is the only hope for each individual and for our nation. The problem we are facing in this country is a spiritual and moral problem. New laws and more government give-away programs are not the answer. It’s a heart problem, and only God can change the human heart.

I’m disappointed that some of the President’s harshest critics about going to the church were “clergy.” They have publicly (to the media) criticized the President for walking to the church and for holding up the Bible. That’s unbelievable. They should be thanking him rather than criticizing him! They are nitpicking his gesture, also saying he should have prayed while he was there. So critical. Well, maybe they should invite him back and pray for him as he leads this country through a very difficult time in our history.

I call on all pastors, regardless of denomination, race, or political persuasion, to join hands and join hearts in praying for our nation, that God would give wisdom to our leaders—our mayors, our governors, our President Donald J. Trump, and also our law enforcement. The God of the Bible is our only hope. – Franklin Graham, 3 Jun ’20
