Random Thoughts 12

RANDOM THOUGHTS #12
May 26, 2021

A number of odds and ends, which have accumulated since the last Random Thoughts (a bit over two months ago). 

Most of these came in the e-mail and some other items were turned up during that tedious BUT necessary work we call “research.”

+ An email asking “Question: Why should Christians care about the Middle East in general, and specifically about Israel?”

+ A persuasive letter urging the purchase of a product used in chelation therapy for everyday use to make one healthier and live a more fulfilled life! 

The e-mail stressed the SAFETY of this product (“so safe, it’s used on BABIES“), though further research begged to differ.

Chelation therapy must be administered with care as it has a number of possible side effects, including death. In response to increasing use of chelation therapy as alternative medicine and in circumstances in which the therapy should not be used in conventional medicine, various health organizations have confirmed that medical evidence does not support the effectiveness of chelation therapy for any purpose other than the treatment of heavy metal poisoning. Over-the-counter chelation products are not approved for sale in the United States.

+ A video arrived in the e-mail which  posed a question.

Is the world getting ready for the son of perdition?” 

The ‘son of perdition’ is mentioned in 2THESSALONIANS 2:3 and is better known as the ‘man of sin’ or ‘the false prophet’ [other labels from the Bible].

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition”
–2THESSALONIANS 2:3

So, IS the world getting ready for the son of perdition?

Ever since Jesus departed this world the first time…


RANDOM THOUGHTS


+ For the reader who uses a Linux OS, there’s Creating a Fix Stick and Fix Stick Upgrade.

The ‘Fix stick’ is a bootable USB stick which allows the person to perform many fix-it tasks, depending on the programs installed on the stick.

+ A re-examination of an article published ALMOST one year ago: The Cluttered Mind of Modern Man.

What is the clutter who clogs the mind of modern man?

What THIS article is referring to when it mentions CLUTTER are the dozens of contrary ideas in the spiritual or religious realm which the reader has stored away until he can “deal with it” (think it over).

Even if one has read the article before, there are MANY points which most likely will have been forgotten since that visitation.

+ A collection of quotes on PROPAGANDA, including the following two by the Father of Propaganda (also called “the father of public relations” and “the father of advertising”) EDWARD BERNAYS.

“We need an invisible government. Intelligent manipulation of the consciousness and knowledge of the masses regarding habits and opinions is an important part of democracy.

Public opinion can be adjusted by technology. Movies are the greatest subconscious propaganda tool. They are an effective way to change thoughts and opinions, the film can unify the customs and opinions of nations. The elites who manipulate public opinion are the invisible government that is the real power of the country. “

AND

“If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group’s consciousness, is it not possible to control and control the masses according to our will without their knowledge? Recent practice has shown that this is possible, at least to a certain point and within certain limits.”

+ A treasure trove of ADDITIONAL quotes on a NUMBER of varied and sundry topics.

1

“Last week it was reported that the churches of America increased their membership by 690,000. Are you encouraged by these figures? I for my part am not encouraged a bit. I have indeed my own grounds for encouragement. . . . But these figures have no place among them. How many of these 690,000 names do you think are really written in the Lamb’s book of life? A small proportion, I fear. Church membership today often means nothing more, as has well been said, than a vague admiration for the moral character of Jesus; the Church in countless communities is little more than a Rotary Club. . . . It will be hard; it will seem impious to timid souls; many will be hurt. But in God’s name let us get rid of shams and have reality at last.”
J. Gresham Machen, 1926 – (h/t:BP)

“The Bible is the tool used to evaluate genuine and counterfeits.

The Genuine have the Holy Spirit.

Counterfeits do not understand the Bible and therefore cannot teach or talk about it.

The Counterfeits in the churches attempt to get away with this by pretending it is all just a matter of disagreeing over trifles–using such well-worn red herrings as “Well, that’s your opinion” and “Everyone can agree to disagree on this matter” (and other similar sounding tripe). This is okay if the conversation has to do with the number of soldiers Greece used in World War I or who was US president in 1870, but NOT God’s Word.
–ETPR, Sept 2017

“Politics have no relation to morals.”
–Niccolo Machiavelli

4

“Genocide is not just a murderous madness; it is, more deeply, a politics that promises a utopia beyond politics – one people, one land, one truth, the end of difference. Since genocide is a form of political utopia, it remains an enduring temptation in any multiethnic and multicultural society in crisis.”
Michael Ignatieff, Canadian author and former politician

UTOPIA = means “nowhere” in (ancient) Greek

5

“Health care’s not about insurance! Health care’s about getting treatment.”
— P. J. O’Rourke

…and controlling access to treatment

6

“In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.”
George Orwell, author

…and those are this edition’s Random Thoughts…

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
