RANDOM THOUGHTS 17
Originally posted: October 3, 2022

Various bits of miscellany which have accumulated (mostly on sticky notes and scraps of paper) since the last RANDOM THOUGHTS (about four months ago).

* When the judgment bill comes due for ALL of those who do not believe, it would be natural to feel a bit of sympathy for those poor, benighted folks…

EXCEPT, they richly deserve their bills, having turned aside ALL pleas to change their ways BEFORE that due date.

IF the reader is one of the ones who will feel the wrath of God’s judgment, know that there exists a number of their fellows who must weigh sympathy with reason.

IF the reader is one who will NOT feel the wrath of God’s judgment, give thanks and praise for this relatively-rare circumstance.

IF the reader is UNSURE of what group into which he will fall, then it’s time to make a COMPLETE break with the world and its wicked ways.

* The list of former #1 retail giants in the USA looks to grow longer before the day is done.

For DECADES, Sears and Roebucks ruled that lofty spot, using its mail order operations to climb to #1–and stay there.

K-Mart next took over in the mid-80’s as the #1 retailer in the USA.  WalMart overtook K-Mart and became #1–where it stands today.

Readers would NOT be amiss if they suspected that WalMart will NOT maintain its #1 position.

What company will replace them?

Who knows?

One might hazard a guess that it might be one of the dollar-store chains EXCEPT that it appears that there is a ‘race-to-the-bottom’ going on between those establishments.

One store in a big dollar-store chain was CLOSED for business for NO APPARENT REASON twelve days of the past two weeks. A number of stories circulated as to WHY the store was closed, but NONE of the reasons given were particularly credible.

* Joe Biden could very well become President “Kick Me” before it’s all said and done–particularly if the Corporate Media has its way.


PAST RANDOM THOUGHTS


* IF one comments on Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media) each and every day, one can avoid sounding like a broken record by NOT sounding the SAME warning in the SAME way each and every day.

Which is ONE good reason the wicked do NOT hear the same warnings every day–though the wicked remain wicked and those warnings remain valid.

* Here is a thought which has been entertained more than once over the years: IF a thought becomes a part of one’s normal thinking pattern, can it STILL be considered ‘random’?

* ‘When Jesus returns to earth’ is a phrase one will not hear uttered by those who are NOT believers–which is the primary reason those who do NOT believe God’s Word are so surprised at the events which take place which are CLEARLY forewarned of by the Bible.

* Deceivers believe that all success they have is due to their great and glorious intellectual advantage they enjoy over their prey. That their prey is also deceived and blinded is not taken into their calculations.

* Does the reader believe that the various government road departments in charge of keeping our roads well-maintained have suddenly forgotten how to do their jobs? After decades of such departments keeping the public roadways in fairly good repair (regardless of the various complaints about potholes heard from time-to-time), the end times are now a time when one takes one’s life into one’s hands whenever one ventures onto the blacktopped pathways we call ‘roads.’ This is mainly due to roadway departments complaining of a lack of money–even though their departments, by any and all indicators, are over-flowing with cash.

DOES the reader sometimes have ‘random thoughts?’

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

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

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

RANDOM THOUGHTS 16
Originally posted: April 29, 2022

Various bits of miscellany which have accumulated (mostly on sticky notes and scraps of paper) since the last RANDOM THOUGHTS (almost three months ago).

PERHAPS this offering should have been called “Random Thoughts about Random Thoughts,” since the first two or three items address that specific topic?

When EVERYBODY (the government) pays, then NOBODY pays.

At least that is the thinking of many moderns.

This is evident from the great number of people who treat government benefits and other monies AS IF there was NO cost to this largesse and no differently than if this benefit suddenly “dropped out of the sky.”

A LARGE number of moderns suppose that their monthly checks from the government are a “right” and as such, they DESERVE those benefits.

The money which pays for those benefits is not seen as having come from ANYWHERE or ANYONE previous to the government having possessed it.

There appears to be a natural reluctance on the part of man to PUT AWAY the many stories he has been told from his youth.

EVEN IF ONE KNOWS BETTER–or can see through the sugar-coating of lies–the comfort such stories bring all those who believe in them often outweighs any benefits the truth might bring.  At least that is the way that almost ALL moderns behave.

Regardless of what he may say to the contrary, man LOVES his routine.

Perhaps this is because most men are CREATURES OF HABIT–and what is a ROUTINE but habits which are formalized and organized into mostly-daily behaviors?

There is a COMFORT to the routines which most men organize and create.

Perhaps this is one reason why times of chaos and confusion affect men so: the routines they have grown so accustomed to visiting–many daily or even, MULTI-daily–are suddenly uprooted and often suffer irreparable harm.

The sense that NOT all is right with the world may be more than just a vague perception of troubles on the horizon.

WHAT IF there is something deeper going on which the person affected does not see?

A bit of what that ‘something’ that one cannot see is hinted at in the entire quote of “all is right with the world.”

AT LEAST ONE of the dictionaries gives the entire entry as “God is in his heaven and all is right with the world.”

Robert Browning (in 8141) first expressed the thought in print over 180 years ago.

Perhaps the feeling that “NOT all is right with the world” is a WARNING that man gets from his CREATOR—even if that man denies such a CREATOR exists?

Could such a feeling of unease perhaps cause that man to RE-EVALUATE his behaviors, his circumstance, his life?

Perhaps.

Those who propagate the propaganda that one partakes of EACH AND EVERY DAY do NOT take a DAY OFF if nothing much is happening.

This is one big reason that modern man will STILL be surrounded by false stories and premises regardless of whether anything happens to further that particular false story or false premise along.

The Wicked Take No Vacation

Over the years, we are REPEATEDLY told that “No man is an island.”

HOWEVER, modern man is increasingly finding ways to disprove that supposed maxim.

EACH modern appears to live in a sort of SELF-IMPOSED isolation; a sort of informational cocoon: MOST moderns become  SEPARATED from their family, their former friends, their fellows AS IF those groups of people FORMERLY referred to as a person’s “support network” did NOT exist.

These PERSONAL contacts have been increasingly supplanted by an IMPERSONAL collection of government agencies, NGOs, and other alternatives.

It may be true that “No man is an island.”

But every day brings us closer to a time when perhaps that motto may be swept into the ash heap of history,” replaced by latest tidbit which flashes across the screen of man’s smartphone or computer.

The observations and small details which are noticed a man will have as a FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST are NOT the same ones he had when he was a heathen.

IF God’s Word is true, then this would HAVE to be true as well.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
–2CORINTHIANS 5:17

One CANNOT be a NEW CREATURE if one still lives by the OLD LIES.

One of modern man’s GREATEST DELUSIONS is that modern man possesses “something inside” which some refer to as “The (Modern) Art of Navigation.”

This “something” that modern man supposedly has inside of him is seen BY MAN as a guide through troubled times.

And when one forsakes his CREATOR, one USUALLY finds SOMETHING ELSE to worship.

Many moderns have found that “something inside” to be a nearly-perfect substitute for the God they no longer believe in.

In this regard, the Art of Navigation is more an idol than a true guide through troubled times.

OF COURSE, if one’s idols (or what lies behind that idol) waits until the times are VERY chaotic to desert that person who previously depended upon it, then where does the person NEXT turn to for comfort and guidance?

“But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.”
–1CORINTHIANS 10:20

OR, does that person–having forsaken his CREATOR–give up on comfort and guidance?

A person may depend a GREAT DEAL on his Art of Navigation IF that person NEVER ventures very far from shore.

AND THESE are what pass for Random Thoughts in the times in which we now find ourselves.

Various bits of miscellany which have accumulated (mostly on sticky notes and scraps of paper) since the last RANDOM THOUGHTS (almost two months ago).

PERHAPS this offering should be called “Random Thoughts about Deception,” since the first two or three items address that topic?

+ Will those who believe they control the earth EVER tire of promoting ZOMBIES by pretending that the masses are clamoring for that claptrap?

MORE: Men Are NOT Zombies: There Are NO Zombies

The question THEN becomes: “WHY is this ceaseless promotion of zombies and the undead occurring?”

Does the reader have any speculation on the matter?

Pretending that the masses are so anxious to get information on a subject that the media is FORCED to provide it is not a new trick.

It is an OLD stratagem, MUCH used by those who labor for the Corporate Media (Satan’s Mouthpiece).

But, this tactic is NOT limited to the Corporate Media.  It continues to be used by entertainment, advertising and other worldly spheres of influence.

+ ONE of the most misused (and abused) words in the English language has to be “debunked.”

DEBUNKED

To discredit, or expose to ridicule the falsehood or the exaggerated claims of something.

Though the definition strongly hints at, it remains unspoken that to debunk something is to PRESENT PROOF or EVIDENCE which exposes the claim being debunked as a lie.

The Corporate Media is fond of using debunk as a synonym for “disagree.”

Many a media narrative claims that a person has “debunked” something–when that person presented NO proof; NO evidence; NOTHING whatsoever which shows that the debunked item was untrue.

Most of the media narratives using “debunked” are about a person giving a contradictory version of events and DISAGREEING with the “debunked” claim.

To disagree and then offer one’s opinion about what was said is NOT debunking what was said.

IF no contrary proof is offered, then no debunking has occurred.

+ One of the longest-running deceptions in the land formerly known as the United States of America is the one about the press being an adversary of the U.S. presidents; of the U.S. politicians; of anybody in the USA who is rich and celebrated.

The truth of the matter is that the press and the presidents (as well as the press and the others named) are the most kindred of spirits.

Of course, these bosom pals mug for the cameras and PRETEND they are adversaries.

On occasion, they even call each other names.

BUT, really, when did the press EVER halt one of the vital concerns of the mystery of iniquity?


PAST RANDOM THOUGHTS


+ How many words have been used to describe the GREATNESS of those who scribble for Satan’s Mouthpiece?

+ There are MANY ways those who believe they control the world can use to make events appear to be something other than what they really are.

This is PARTICULARLY true of those happenings which are presented as EXTREME WEATHER events AND any event which is supposedly a calamity from which the world will pretend to rescue man.

+ Can ANYTHING prepare a man for the time when all of his fellows seemingly turn on him?

DOES the reader have any thoughts on any of the topics herein?

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

RANDOM THOUGHTS 14
Originally posted: December 8, 2021

 

Various bits of miscellany which have accumulated (mostly on sticky notes and scraps of paper) since the last RANDOM THOUGHTS (about eleven weeks ago).

PERHAPS this offering should be called “Random Thoughts about the Rich and Celebrated,” since the first two or three items address those topics.

+ A recent conversation covered FAKE feuds and the fields where one is most likely to find these fictive fights.

Politics, the professional entertainers known as ‘pro sports players’ and TV and music celebrities seemed to ALL be fields of those who engage in FAKE feuds for publicity, money and/or both.

+ Speaking of FAKE feuds, the outfit EASILY leading all others was the Real Housewives (who are neither real nor housewives) actors. The only people with as many fake feuds as the Real Housewives are pro wrestlers (and the pro wrestlers PROMOTE the fact that their feuds are largely fictitious.

+ Also from that same discussion was the mention that many of the Real Housewives do not have REAL names. They are known by, what was called “stripper names.”  That is, names which are manufactured to be easily remembered and to promote the namee’s notoriety.

A stripper name is a fake name that prostitutes use. If someone asks you what your stripper name is you say the name of your first pet and the street you first lived on.
What does stripper name mean?

+ With that in mind, here is a PAGE of fake name generators for those who want to come up with different fake names for ANY occasion.


RANDOM THOUGHTS


+ A recent discussion covered the points made in an article published a month or so ago, Invisible Beings: How Many Times?, namely: how many times has a person come in contact with invisible beings AND how many times did that person even know they had come in contact with such an entity? The general consensus appeared to be that this happened quite frequently–TO OTHERS.

Of course, if the person was not aware that such contact was made, how would they be able to keep track of how many times it had happened to them?

+ Somehow–during that same general discussion–the topic of the ELECTRIC GRID going down at some point in the near future came up.  One person advised against keeping a lot of frozen food on hand. “All you will have is cold, soggy paper wrapped around cold, soggy food” seemed to be her motto.

Another woman claimed that she wasn’t worried as she had a couple of copper kettles and LOTS of canning jars.  “If the power goes out for any length of time, I’ll fire up those kettles and can what HAD BEEN my frozen foods.” It was pointed out to her that the authorities would NOT be likely to make the announcement “Hey!  There will not be any more electricity!”  The question became “How will you know to can the food before it goes bad if the authorities are claiming the power will be back on in a few days?” The woman’s answer was that she would can all of her frozen food if the power was off for four or five days or longer.

We will see…

+ The last edition of RANDOM THOUGHTS touched on the many, great changes which were taking place at the time.

Here’s a question: Is it still considered “change” IF a change has been made and most adjust to it until the change is now a WAY OF LIFE?

This is a topic on which generations normally collide: the elders remembering the way things USED TO BE and the youngsters (not knowing or having experienced those older ways) easily picking up the new ways because they ONLY KNOW what they have been taught.

It all boils down to one’s life experiences.

+ A year ago, the COVID changes were coming fast and furious.

By the looks of today’s ‘news’ stories, the changes will continue to come for some time yet.

Some days, a third (or more) of the headlines are COVID-related.

A few weeks ago, someone asked if God hated man now.

“Why would you ask such a thing?”

“Because God controls disease, that’s why.”

The question was then posed, “WHAT IF COVID/coronavirus wasn’t a dread disease at all BUT a campaign of deception?”

No definitive answer to this question was ever received.

What was said 10-11 weeks ago:

+ The ‘pandemic’ and all of its associated stories seem to have slowed down the rush to make HALLOWEEN into the Great American Holiday Season.

We will see…

HOW MANY of these points did the reader agree with the writer?

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

RANDOM THOUGHTS 13
Originally posted: September 21, 2021

 

Various bits of miscellany which have accumulated (mostly on sticky notes) since the last RANDOM THOUGHTS (almost four months ago).

+ Perhaps this edition of RANDOM THOUGHTS ought to be labeled “Continuing Updates,” since several of the notes have to do with checking the Corporate Media’s (Satan’s Mouthpiece) progress on assorted story lines they had begun.

+ OR, perhaps this edition of RANDOM THOUGHTS should be titled, “GREAT End Times Changes,” as several of the notes have to do with the sundry CHANGES which have taken place over the last twelve-fifteen months.

+ One of fashion’s latest trends–which started many years ago–is the wearing of sunglasses in order to portray the wearer as an effortlessly COOL person.  Yes, we know the rocksters have been doing this for years, but it seems to be spreading to other pockets of the rich and celebrated. NOT ONLY THAT, but it appears that there are regular, ordinary people who walk among us who believe that if they don a pair of shades, they have somehow changed the composition of their being.  They have not–but this hasn’t stopped these hipsters, young and old, from  trying.  SOME go so far as to alter their speech patterns once they put on their casually COOL sunglasses. IF the reader believes that his whole persona CHANGES when he sports a pair of dark glasses, there is NOTHING that can be said to him to disabuse him of this notion.  MAYBE, when one sees one of these poseurs, the BEST thing that can be said is “Wow!  You REALLY look good in those sunglasses!”  Of course, the reader should be aware that this will only encourage such folks.


RANDOM THOUGHTS


+ Perhaps NOTHING illustrates the modern reliance on MAN and the SCHEMES OF MAN (including government-backed schemes) to, not only provide comfort and joy, but also to soothe whatever nerves might be fraying due to worry about the future AS the various plans involving  Social Security–or other privately-administered retirement programs.

+ The most common reactions to ANY suggestions that these programs will soon enough be nothing more than a bad memory, seems to fall into four groups.

a- The first group reacts with COMPLETE and UTTER DENIAL.  “Why do you say that?  No, it will be fine! They have very smart people working night and day to make sure that never happens!”

b- The second group reacts with (what they feel) is REASONED DENIAL.  “They would never let that happen!”  “I deserve that much!”  “Any politician that would let Social Security fail would be looking for another job ASAP!”

c- The third group reacts with DENIAL based on how many years they expect to live. “I worked hard for that!  Take it away? It COULD happen, but I’ll be dead and gone when it does!”

d- The fourth and final group reacts by ATTACKING anyone who suggests that the gravy train will soon stop. “You’re one of those nay-sayers.  What are you: a Communist?”

+ The number of folks who seem totally baffled by the details of modern conveniences–such as hooking up a DVD player to a modern TV–appears to be growing.  This was evidenced lately when, upon stopping to chat with an acquaintance, the visitor was met with a query, “Are you an electronics person?”   Now, the reader should be cautioned that NO surveys were conducted; NO studies performed; NO testing of this observation in ANY form was done.  It is only an observation based on the many pleas received OR the number of folks who have taken EXTRAORDINARY measures to ensure that their TVs or cellphones are working properly.  These are NOT technologically-challenged knuckle-draggers, but they include a man who recently invested, not only in some woodworking tools, but also LUMBER and hardware, so that his TV would receive the optimum number of channels from his somewhat-complicated antenna setup.

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you”
–Mark 13:3-5

Though mankind is warned REPEATEDLY in God’s Word about DECEPTION during the end times, most completely ignore whether they are lied to or whether they are told the truth DEPENDING upon how favorable their circumstances are at that moment. The ONE circumstance which Jesus Christ Himself cautioned against was end times deception, including the deceptions associated with false prophets and false Christs.

+ Yet, Americans in particular (though they may loudly protest), are okay with lies AS LONG AS THE GRAVY TRAIN KEEPS ROLLING.  The country can be falling apart, American leaders might be ESPECIALLY terrible, and the culture might be bleeding sewage, but as long as the checks and money keep flowing, Americans might grumble about the other stuff, but they’ll “roll with it.” It is STRONGLY suggested that once the bucks stop, Americans will suddenly discover they have been LIED TO!

Heavens.

+ Was wondering the other day about HOW MANY have bought their “Team SCIENCE!” T-shirts?

IF one is going to fall for the stories, one really should go all in.

+ Headlines from the past few months about cars going bye-bye.  The reasons given most frequently are 1) giving up cars is good for the planet; and, 2) Cars are too expensive for the average person to own.  (Of course, the government and Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media) will NEVER run out of REASONS WHY prices are so high, money is so tight or products you need are so scarce.

+ RE the promises of man: WHOEVER is president of the USA–when the USA ‘goes out of business,’–will be remembered by future generations of Americans as a FAILURE: a goof; a bonehead; a fool of the highest order.

+ The ‘pandemic’ and all of its associated stories seem to have slowed down the rush to make HALLOWEEN into the Great American Holiday Season.

We will see…

 

WHAT ‘random thoughts’ does the reader have to ADD TO these?

It is not YET too late: there is still a little 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

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)
End Times Prophecy Headlines: February 22-23, 2014

2

“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

3

“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.

Comments and Asides 5 AND Random Thoughts 11

Comments and Asidesrandom thoughts

SINCE

1- We haven’t really had a Random Thoughts OR a Comments & Asides for several months; and,

2- We have a LOT of stuff which has piled up in various places where stuff piles up,

IT was decided to combine Random Thoughts AND Comments and Asides this week!

So, this is Comments & Asides 5 AND Random Thoughts 11–all in ONE piece!

  • First, a few links from our email box.

1- Forget COVID, Global Oligarchs Are Now Rehearsing For A ‘Cyber Pandemic’

2- The U.S. government has set up a website to report bad vaccinations.

(h/t:KJ) -who supplied both of the links.

  • The same folks who supply the Word of the Day (Today it was CIRCUMLOCUTION.) also supply WORDS OF THE WEEK.
  • Found an UNUSED joke.  So, we’ll use it NOW.

“A New York City judge struck down a proposed law to ban sodas larger than 16 ounces. I think Mayor Bloomberg should spend his time trying to improve stuff like education. New York needs a better education system if kids didn’t figure out they could get around the 16-ounce soda ban by simply purchasing two 12-ounce sodas.”
–Craig Ferguson (2013)

  •  2 quotes on MAGIC were also found in our assorted  piles of STUFF.

At one time, there was probably an article which would have used these.  But that time seems to have passed LONG ago. So, here are the two quotes.

“The genre of fantasy is about magic and occult characters.”
Shawn Ashmore

“Once upon a time, forests were repositories of magic for the human race.”
John Burnside

  • A few links which explore the bridge between Science! and the occult.

Ancient Magic IS Real: New Revelations in Occult Science

The occult beginnings of authentic science

Jack Parsons and the occult roots of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory

As well as a few more unused quotes on the matter and a few more links.

Until the 17th century, there was very little distinction between what we now call chemistry and what we would label as alchemy or magic,” [Nayeli Pena ’22, a potential economics major in the class] explains.

Medieval society in particular was an integrated space, where science, religion, magic, and emotion all overlapped and intersected. Witchcraft per se is invented when people in power separate it out as a category of being and layer on misogyny, anti-Semitism, and racism onto it.
Class Stirs the Pot of Witchcraft’s History

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
–Arthur C. Clarke, Clarke’s 3 Laws

This seems to be as good a place as any to remind the reader: There is NO such thing as magic.

There are, however, ways to make what most folks would call “magic” happen.

  • And lastly, some assorted quotes on those Sunday meetin’ places we call CHURCHES.

“Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.”
–Billy Sunday

“If Jesus came back and saw what was being done in his name, he’d never stop throwing up.”
― Woody Allen, Hannah and Her Sisters

“Civilization will not attain to its perfection until the last stone from the last church falls on the last priest.”
― Émile Zola

“The story goes that a public sinner was excommunicated and forbidden entry to the church. He took his woes to God. ‘They won’t let me in, Lord, because I am a sinner.’

‘What are you complaining about?’ said God. ‘They won’t let Me in either.”
― Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel: Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, and Burnt Out

“I know whom we must fight…it is the Church. For all its history, it’s tried to suppress and control every natural impulse.That is what the Church does, and every church is the same: control, destroy, obliterate every good feeling.”
― Philip Pullman, The Subtle Knife

“When there’s something in the Bible that churches don’t like, they call it ‘legalism.’”
– Leonard Ravenhill

“If Jesus preached the same message minister’s preach today, He would have never been crucified.”
– Leonard Ravenhill

 

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.
