The most despicable marketing of God’s judgment

The most despicable marketing of Gods judgment

It is interesting how every weather pattern, disease outbreak or earthquake becomes a judgment from God. Some – no, many people with no biblical understanding of judgment are somehow capable of labeling a judgment after the fact. As a Christian, I take great efforts to understand the difference between certain actions God takes or, more specifically, when He intervenes. I certainly expect individuals who profess to be Christians to understand the differences between judgment, blessing/cursing and discipline. Especially disconcerting are those individuals with no foundation of truth spewing garbage about hurricanes being Mother Nature’s judgments against mankind. Yeah, right, thanks for playing Who’s the Most Deceived Millionaire.

What I find particularly perturbing is Jim Bakker’s flagrant use of Hurricane Harvey to sell his survival product. People are mentioning “end of days” without understanding what that means and we have Bakker, a highly rated televangelist, taking advantage of people to sell his products.

On occasion, I have listened to Mr. Bakker and every time I find myself shaking my head. He sprinkles enough truth on top of his dialogues while peddling a product or latest book that people find little threads from which they hang every made up notion about what God is doing and is going to do. I will not claim to know God’s mind. I cannot know His mind. Obviously then, I cannot know the specifics about how He plans to fulfill prophesy. I am, however, aware of the signs of the times and what those signs represent on our timeline – that march toward the Rapture of the Church, the Great Tribulation and the Millennial Reign of Christ.

As I said, I cannot know the mind of God. But I can study His word and I can form a set of logical ideas about the characteristics of God’s judgments. The first time we find a judgment in the Bible is that of Adam and Eve. Here is what is consistent about God’s judgments:

  1. He foretells of judgment if a specific action is taken
  2. He is righteous to carry out justice (execute the judgment)
  3. Judgments have far-reaching devastation

We see the same characteristics surrounding the Great Flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Egypt and their gods (the ten plagues) and we are certainly warned of devastating and destructive judgments to come during the Tribulation.

Each judgment is clearly spoken of in advance. Adam and Eve were told they would surely die if they ate of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil; God warned Noah 120 years in advance of the flood; Lot was warned to leave Sodom and Gomorrah; Moses warned of God’s judgment if Pharaoh did not let the Israelites go free. We also find great devastation in each case. The judgment of Adam and Eve, like the Great Flood, affected the entire earth and every creature upon it.

God also uses discipline but only for those nations who declare God as their Lord (Psalm 33:12). He also promises blessings and curses for certain actions regardless of God’s place in the nation: Those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed (Genesis 12:3). I find it much more likely that God has removed His blessings of protection from natural events and disasters due to our (as a nation) displacement of God in our lives. Since God was removed from public schools and replaced with humanism, He has simply followed suit and removed His blessings.

This is why I find Bakker especially reprehensible. The problem is that there are many more like him. And, if you are a Christian watching all these signs in the heavens awaiting some great thing to be revealed, you are looking in the wrong place (see Colossians 3:1-2, key words “where Christ is sitting” for context). Those signs are not for us, they are for the unbelievers. The recent Four Blood Moons event netted millions of dollars for several evangelicals (example John Hagee) and a couple of Messianic Jews (Jonathan Kahn and Mark Biltz) in book deals and seminars.

I simply shake my head.

Pro-life Trumpservatives praise Trump for protecting unborn babies he isn’t protecting

Pro-life Trumpservatives praise Trump for protecting unborn babies he isnt protecting

Lately, it seems that not a day goes by where we aren’t provided with another example of how conservative values have been consumed by the fires of compromise on the altar of Trumpservatism. While sacrificing principles for power is commonplace for the GOP priests serving in the Temple of Trump, the sad reality is that real priests, pastors, and other religious leaders have provided the kindling and the oil that fuels the flames.

One of the tragic consequences coming from the rise of the group I refer to as the Fellowship of the Pharisees concerns abortion. In the Age of Trump, these false teachers have abandoned their defense of the unborn under the delusion that Trump is keeping his promises.

On her blog (civilrightsfortheunborn.org), Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., wrote a piece responding to recent accusations made by Omarosa Manigault Newman that Donald Trump often uses racial slurs. *

* NOTE: While her claims may or may not be true, Trump is taking advantage of this “squirrel” moment to let America know that Omarosa is a “low life” even though he frequently brags about how he hires only the “best people.”

After making her case in defense of Trump, King concluded with these words:

“He is keeping his campaign promises. The job market is better for everyone. Unemployment is at an all-time low. Babies and children are safer inside and outside the womb. Prayer is returning to the public square.” (emphasis mine)

King’s claim is not only untrue, but the lives of the unborn continue to grow more perilous … and profitable.

Besides the fact that Trump and the GOP have continued to fund Baby Butchers, Inc. (Planned Parenthood), the byproduct of their murderous practices (body parts) has become another revenue stream, courtesy of the taxpayer—an income stream that has increased under Republican control of Washington.

A few days ago, we learned about a contract between the US Food and Drug Administration and Advanced Biometric Resources (ABR) to acquire human fetal tissue for experiments on mice. In a 2016 Senate Judiciary Committee report, we learned that ABR’s primary source of baby parts was Planned Parenthood.

Trump and the GOP allegedly created the “most pro-life platform ever” in 2016, and they promised to defund Planned Parenthood and bring an end to dismemberment abortions. Despite candidate Trump’s pro-Planned Parenthood sentiments at the time, so-called pro-life activists believed he would fulfill the GOP’s promise. But as we learned earlier this year, they have no intention of doing so.

Unfortunately, those who used to defend the unborn baby in the womb have chosen to defend the unethical baby in the White House. Meanwhile, there will be hundreds of thousands more slaughtered babies, thanks to cowards like Trump, the GOP, and so-called religious leaders.

Ben Shapiro on white supremacists

One-liners have been a staple of Ben Shapiro’s appeal since the political commentator entered the public eye a few years ago. Give him a topic and he’ll come up with something clever and almost certainly true to say about it. The topic of white supremacists was no exception.

“It’s not coincidental that people who spend all day talking about the supposed innate superiority of the white race are invariably brick stupid.”

MSNBC and the Huffington Post would like a new name for Socialism’s brutal oppression and mass murder

MSNBC and the Huffington Post would like a new name for Socialisms brutal oppression and mass murder

Leftists seem to think that with a brand new label, people will readily accept the carnage and repression that is necessary in creating their wonderful collectivist Utopia.

Brute force is the only way that socialism can function, it can hardly take “From each according to their abilities” without it. But that’s a hard sell when compared to the voluntary exchange of Economic Liberty. In general, people would rather live in freedom than under the boot heel of oppression, so the Left has to lie to convince people to enslave themselves under socialism. It’s a little shell game Leftists have played for centuries with different labels or sloganeering to sell their system of control “to regulate every aspect of people’s lives.”

We are now witness to the Left trying to craft new versions of labeling for their ancient ideas, emphasising the goodies without mentioning the mass murder that has to go along with it. It should go without saying that the sales pitch will be long on free-stuff everyone is supposed to vote for themselves and short on talk of the SEBIN hauling people off to La Tumba when the promises run short. Most rational people wouldn’t choose to live under the tyranny of authoritarian socialism aside from the Leftists who get to run the show.

At present, bastions of the principles of Liberty are feverishly writing advice columns on how to accomplish the task. With emphasis on “Free Healthcare”,” Free college”, “Free housing”, “Free food” instead of the fact that everyone loses their Liberty under socialistic slavery – except for the Leftists who are in control.

The claim is that things have somehow changed, for this will be socialism with ‘No gulags’, just all kinds of free stuff paid for with other people’s money. The days of concentration camps, firing squads and Comités de Defensa de la Revolución (CDR) are gone*.  [*Except for China, Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela…] From the  Huffington Post – Relax, Boomers: Socialism Is Good Now.

The Liberty brain trust over on MSNBC discussed this issue while the host mocked everyone who fears the loss of freedom under socialistic slavery as mentioned on the Daily Wire: “But lots of people don’t get into the argument, they just go, ‘Oh my gosh, socialist, I can’t have that. It’s gonna take all my money,'” Ruhle arrogantly said while mocking American’s fears of socialism.

MSNBC’s Ruhle Mocks Fears of Socialism: ‘Oh My Gosh! It’s Gonna Take All My Money!’ 8-3-2018

But we on the Pro-Liberty Right would like to help out our comrades of the National Socialist-Left, They want a new name for their vile ideology of organised evil [Ops.. did we say that out loud..]. So we’re willing to help them out, given the effort will be difficult given the already existing 40 plus synonyms for their 500-year-old ideas:

Anarcho-syndicalism, Anarcho-Communism, Authoritarianism, Bolshevism, Castroism, Chávezism, Communism, collectivism, co-operative society, collective ownership, communalism, Economic Justice, Evolutionary Socialism, Fabianism, Fascism, Fourierism, Guild socialism, Leftism, Leninism, Libertarian-Socialist, Maoism, Marxism, Marxism–Leninism, National Socialism, Neofascism, Ochlocracy, Owenism, Progressivism, Project X, Reformism, Revolutionary Socialism, Rule of the proletariat, Social democracy, Social justice, Sovietism, Stalinism, Statism, State capitalism, State ownership, Syndicalism, Totalitarianism, Trotskyism, Utopian Socialism.

Aside from recycling a few words from the past, the Left is running short on words and slogans to sell Socialistic Slavery. So, in the spirit of generosity, we have a few suggestions for what the Left can do with it’s base ideology.

Notes on Leftist Labels

Leftists do have a penchant for playing games with definitions for common words, with the myriad labels for their base ideology being no exception. The dichotomy has always been between individualism and collectivism, in the case of the main label of their base ideology, the Left’s rationale is that socialism came from being ‘social’ + ism or Socialistic [as opposed to being individualist]. So it’s not beyond the bounds of reason to see them try to pull off the same linguistic legerdemain with other words that mean being nice or friendly.

Please take note of what seems to be the current take of the Left in trying to sell Socialistic Slavery to a new generation. This is the use of __________ ism – not mentioning the name of the ideology, but pushing all of it’s wonders, all paid for by money taken at gunpoint from other people.

New name suggestions.

Here are our suggestions along the lines of Leftist labeling lies, beginning with the granddaddy of them all:

Social + ism Socialism [The mouldy oldie that started it all]

Amiable + ism Amiablism

Free + ism Freeism

Friendly + ism Friendlyism

Liberation + ism Liberationism [If that sounds a lot like Liberalism, you’re catching on to the scam]

Society + ism Societism

Collective generosity (aka compulsory taxation) The collective being generous with your money – Taken at gun point

(h/t Paige)

Well, maybe those made up words won’t help since they are along the lines of made up words of the past that conveyed the same ideas that were new 5 centuries ago. So, maybe they can just bolt on a happy sounding adjective or slogan onto the existing words to help sell it with a reassuring lie that it won’t end as it always does.

Socialism – remember it’s still Democratic even if only the Politburo votes.

New and improved Socialism – now 50% gulag free.

Not your father’s Socialism – trust us, we don’t plan on having secret police or concentration camps….. unless we absolutely have to.

Voting for dollars!

Smiley face Socialism – Firing squad free, we *guarantee!
*For 30 days or 300 dissident arrests, whichever comes first. Your oppression my vary, see Marxism.org for complete details.

Progressivism – Running your life so you don’t have to.

So there you have it, our suggestions to the Left in how they can repackage their base ideology. Or perhaps the people have figured out the game. Just as changing the name doesn’t turn certain substances into something wonderful, so too is the case with socialism. There has to be a good reason that some joined the #WalkAway movement. Somehow a new term of total control over one’s life with mass murder and oppression in the background no longer appeals to anyone. Let us hope that is the case.
