Are you able to challenge your ‘firm beliefs’ that are in fact…delusional. The following are just a collection of excerpts – read the full text and be prepared to examine yourself!
Christian leadership—meaning clerics and
commentators of both the Catholic and Protestant varieties—all too often
reveals itself to be
Speaking as a practicing Roman Catholic, this
is a sobering truth with which to reckon.
But it’s true all of the same.
Between genuine Christianity and what I will henceforth refer to as
Big Christianism or, alternatively, the Christianism-Industrial-Complex (CIC),
there is all of the difference………..
……. the Bible,
precisely because it is among the most politically books that has ever existed, is clearly not a thing to which Big Christianists want
their constituents paying particularly careful attention………..
…………God, far from being is
resolutely when it comes to,
not those to whom He extends the invitation of eternal life, but those upon
whom He will ultimately grant it.
These are viewpoints that Big Christianists either ignore or
attempt to reinterpret away.
But for as scandalous and politically intolerable as these perspectives are for the Big Christianist, none is as unacceptable, none is as big of a threat, as the Biblical portrait of Big Christianists hold something like this view. Only the God of the Christianism-Industrial-Complex is a gross distortion of the God that is revealed in the pages of the New Testament. The Jesus that it has created—a nonjudgmental, passive, live-and-let-live, unconditionally accepting 1 century liberal hippie who was crucified for no reason other than that he preached universal love—is a politically-advantageous fiction that permits the CIC to achieve three goals:
First, such a Jesus—let’s call him “Fake Jesus”—is wholly
Jesus repeatedly self-identifies as the God of the Bible, of the Hebrew Scriptures, the same God that demands undivided allegiance from the human beings who He created and upon whom He has visited unrelenting, homicidal, and, in some instances, violence for turning away from Him.
The God who flooded the Earth, destroying the vast majority of
people and animal species, is the God that became a man in the person of Jesus
The God of the Old Testament who annihilated
whole cities, and who ordered the annihilation of still other cities—of men,
women, children, and livestock—is one and the same God who was born of the
However, Jesus could be pretty merciless toward His closest friends, prospective followers, relatives, and…well, pretty much everybody.
Jesus regularly pulled no punches when chastising His apostles
for their weaknesses in understanding and faith, exhibited what can only strike
us as stone-cold indifference to the pain endured by a man who didn’t want to
follow Him until after he buried his dead father, and in effect denied His own
The Carpenter from Galilee, in featuring such activities as war and slavery in His parables, never condemned these universal institutions. Nor, for that matter, did He condemn “racism,” “sexism,” “homophobia,” “Islamophobia,” “xenophobia,” “nationalism,” “misogyny,” “global warming,” and whatever other unforgivable isms and phobias can be found in the leftist’s catalogue of mortal transgressions.
It is undoubtedly because of this that Big
Christianists prefer to drop Him down the memory hole and, instead, promote a
fictional character, Fake Jesus, that is more conducive to the ends of the
There’s more evidence:
Satan’s servants – both inside and outside of the church – are human
actors. They will not be convinced by the logic and purity of the
non-aggression principle. If all it took in this world was for
reason to govern, libertarianism would be the accepted political regime
It is not, and I have no better explanation as to why than that
presented here. We are governed not by good people with bad ideas;
we are governed by servants of Satan. - bionic mosquito:
Floating in the Æther?
As Americans, our lives are affected by government, politics,
religion and culture. However, few of us are able to coherently explain or
discuss the inter-dependence which exists among all four - http://www.crushlimbraw.com/ - as if
there was none!
Within that structure are multitudes of institutions like
education and media just for starters, which form our politics and culture. Can
you see the problem?
just getting started, here is a whole list of headnotes from DaLimbraw Library
Summary – as I often state, this is NOT a news site. It is a library for those who want to RESEARCH a topic to EDUCATE YOURSELF…. and the library has been organized primarily by the 4 main topics in the title. The best way to find your reference sources is still word search in the search window.
Good hunting, friend! We’re just getting started – this journey is by commitment only……….
