As much as we all long for the ability to enjoy life, there are certain things that make it tough and a bit of a pain sometimes.

One of the things that make it hardest for me to enjoy life is the pitiful state an alarmingly growing number of my fellowmen is falling into, and a certain quality that seems to be ever increasing, which is an appalling lack of interest in the truth.

No matter whether it’s about Evolution or 9/11 or any other subject on which it would require a little bit of courage to embrace the truth instead of the broadband input of lies coming at us from the powers that be and their cronies, the media, people not only seem to prefer the more comfortable lie over the shocking truth, but they even vehemently defend it.

Never before was the proverb as true as today, “No matter how rare the truth, the supply has always been in excess of the demand.” It’s almost as if people worship the lie, and man’s philosophy in the 21st century – with few exceptions – has become a philosophy of lies, a fake reality, very much as described in “The Matrix.”

People are increasingly, as the Bible says “willingly ignorant,” or, as Kent Hovind put it, “dumb on purpose.”

The attitude is, “Don’t bother us with the truth! Entertain us!”

Okay, granted, it would probably make it a bit easier if those who are a “furious voice for the truth” would have all the details straight, and if there wouldn’t be all those variations. Some things we simply don’t know yet. But instead of looking at the overwhelming evidence in favour of the truth, defenders of the lie nitpick at the little details we don’t have straight.

But basically, the truth is still the truth, and the lie is still a lie. The truth that just as behind every shred of information ever given there had to be an author, so must there also be an Author behind the immense amount of information in every living cell is still overwhelming in the face of the probability of it all having happened by chance, no matter how many more people choose to believe the latter, just as most people seem to still choose to believe and defend the official version of 9/11, no matter how ridiculous it is, or the reasons for the Iraq war.

No wonder some people consider their fellowmen dumb sheep.

Jesus never said it was wrong to get smart. He said “Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”

Nonetheless, when you’re “dealing in truth,” it’s a bit frustrating when so few are interested in your merchandize or what you have to offer, even if it’s for free. On the other hand, it does make you appreciate the few friends you do have, and you know they don’t love you for any false reasons. You know they don’t love you because you’re so popular or successful.

What scares me a little about folks like Alex Jones is that they apparently sincerely believe that they can stop the New World Order from happening, and that’s where they seem to lose the Big Picture that the New World Order must come to pass in order for the truth and the forces of good to ultimately prevail.

What they also seem to fail to realize is that there’s some bigger evil at work here than just the Bush administration, and they seem to figure, “Just change the president and everything will be fine.” Or, “If we can just get enough people together, we will win.”

They fail to see the spiritual forces behind what’s happening, and you can’t lick the devil with axes and daggers.

The only Revolution that’s ever going to prevail against the tide of evil that’s rising is the Revolution that started 2000 years ago, which wasn’t a physical one, but a spiritual one. True that most of today’s “followers” of that Revolutionary seem anything but revolutionary, and I wish to God I knew one minister of God with the guts, conviction and initiative of a fellow like Alex Jones.

But I guess it’s always easier to believe that the answer lies in our flesh, in the physical, in our numbers and our own strength.

Perhaps that’s precisely one reason why the NWO must happen, and there’ll be no other way out than God’s way, no other power to save us than His, and we’ll finally recognize that if anything is going to save us, it’s certainly not going to be our own arm.

And as far as the defenders of the unpopular truth not having all the details of their story straight yet, it’s still better to have a skeleton & rough foundation of truth, than a big fat carefully designed and constructed fair-tale, as much as we may all tend to prefer the latter.

The challenge is, how can you get people interested in what’s real instead of the shiny fake? How can you get a kid to choose a carrot over a candy bar? There’s probably no advertising campaign in the world that’s every going to successfully persuade the world to buy the healthier, wholesome option.

I guess the only thing that’s going to do the trick on a large scale is going to be the hard & painful road of experience & finding out where it’s not at.

In the meantime, could I perhaps get you interested in a carrot?

While I deeply feel for the members of the Fundamental Latter Day Saints community who have recently had the State of Texas take nearly 500 of their children into custody in typical self-righteous red-neck furor instigated by some mysterious phone call by a young woman obviously posing as someone else, and I whole-heartedly agree with every public outcry in the media for justice and sanity & pray that the FLDS’ lawyers will have the skill to drive sufficient sense into the presiding judge(s) to have those children returned to their parents, I also have to ask this question:

What did you expect? What did you expect from a State in which less than half a decade ago people were semi-publicly being tortured to death for the mere crime of having a darker skin color than their tormentors and by-standing authorities?

What did you expect from a state in which little more than 1 decade ago the FBI burned to death a whole compound full of men, women and children in a town called Waco?

What did you expect from the government of a country that spends more on killing innocent people in far-away lands than it does on anything else?

What did you expect from a government that has declared war on its own people under the guise of “Homeland Security” in response to a “terrorist act” the official version of which is being doubted and disputed not only by conspiracy theorists, and that you may never find out the truth about until so much more misery will have happened you won’t care anymore, just like with all the other crimes it covered up that are coming to light decades later?

Maybe you really swallowed all that baloney about “land of the free,” or thought the book of Revelation was just a weird allegory put in the Bible to confuse people, and the term “Endtime” was a product of fear-mongers trying to pressure folks to join their cults. Maybe you haven’t discerned the signs of the times, as Jesus advised people to do…

Maybe you’ve ignored the talk of “New World Order” by the Bush dynasty for too long, and the possible effects that oh-so-wonderful New World Order might have on your freedom.

I don’t blame you. If there’s trouble on the horizon, I’m the first one hoping it’ll just up and go away. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always happen that way. Prayer also helps. But sometimes I’m afraid we just reap the results of our own blindness, our own refusal to see what’s going on, and our own unwillingness to cope with the truth.

We all want to feel at home in this world and believe it’s not so bad, after all. But that’s not what Jesus said. He made it clear that He and His followers were not of this world, and if they persecuted and hated Him, they would do it to His followers also (John 15:18-20).

Today it may be the weird little sects that the mainstream Christians wrinkle their noses at. Tomorrow it may be the little bit less mainstream ones whose freedom will be taken away. But sooner or later, under that glorious New World Order, I can pretty much guarantee that if you’re any kind of a true Christian at all, you will suffer persecution, too, and you had better prepare for it while you can.

Prepare for it by realizing that that’s normal for true believers in this world. If you believe the Bible, why don’t you also believe the part where it promises that? (2Tim.3:12)

Prepare for it by realizing that no, this world is not your Home, if you can really say of yourself that you’re a follower of Jesus, and by believing what His Word says about our world we’re living in and who’s running it, and stop kidding yourself into believing that everything is going to be alright just because you live in “free,” “democratic” and oh-so-Christian America.

Let’s face it, if you were the Devil, and you were running this joint, what people would you try to get rid of and eliminate as “undesirable elements” of your oh-so-clever society? First, just like he did it 2000 years ago, you’d probably stir up the fat, lukewarm, deaf & blind religious establishment to wipe out the small radical cults who really do something for their faith, only to sweep up the big birds on your triumphant march back home. (The Jewish establishment in Jesus’ day may have been triumphant over Him and some of His early followers, but only to be stamped out by Rome 40 years later.)

Sooner or later we need to realize who this “War on Terror” is really designed against. Today it may be the Muslims & radical little sects, but sooner or later the Devil will have everyone persuaded that the single greatest threat to world peace (as if he ever cared for it) is those religious nut cakes like me and you, be they Muslim, Jew or Christian, and with another “Christian” in the White House killing and declaring war on everything in sight, it’ll be a piece of cake.

We’d all better prepare for it, because what we are seeing in Texas is only the beginning of sorrows. It’s just a little test run for the greatest religious persecution the world has ever seen that will make the Holocaust look tame in comparison.

If you don’t believe me, you’re not really aware of what’s happening, nor of what the Bible says is yet going to happen. You’ve probably been mislead by false prophets and Bible teachers who interpret the Endtime events in such a way that you will be anything but prepared for them.

The bitter truth is, no one will come to whisk you out of trouble before it happens. Nor will being American protect you. The evil that we’re indifferently watching our governments perpetrate on its victims will come back on us. It’s the law of cause and effect which the Bible also teaches. If we sow the wind, we’ll reap the whirlwind, and if you live in Texas, you may not yet feel it, but from where I stand, Baby, I can feel a cold wind blowing.

Alzheimer Patients at a gathering

(Picture: Alzheimer Patients at a Gathering)

While a small minority of still clear-thinking Americans, scholars & hobby-psychologists is trying to figure out what evil schemes are being put to work in order to hypnotize the vast majority of the American public and keep them in the indifferent stupor that not only enables them to tolerate what’s happening with their country, but to even give standing ovations to the 500th repetition of Bush’s “Anti-Terror” spiel and “We did this to protect our country” garbage, the answer was being revealed to me the other night while watching a movie called “Away From Her.”

Now, while this was not exactly your average action-packed Rambo-type of thriller and I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it, sometimes just one little line in a movie can unveil a mystery that keeps puzzling thousands. In the movie we see an aged Julie Christie (big star in the 70s) suffering from Alzheimer, and as her sickness progresses, she finally insists on her husband taking her to a special foster Home for Alzheimer patients. He does so reluctantly, and for a while comes to visit her every day, spending a lot of time at the institution.

In one particular scene they’re sitting in the TV-lounge and, while watching news clips from the Iraq war, Julie, during one of her clear moments speaks the words, “How could they forget Vietnam?” And then it hit me! It’s obvious! They’ve all got Alzheimer! Maybe the government has found a secret way of infecting nearly the entire population with the disease, and now the President can get away with nearly anything: they’ll just stand up and clap non-stop for 25 minutes whatever he says or does, because they wouldn’t even remember what to do if they would dare stop clapping.

While this is not your run-off-the-mill movie review, let me add that the movie does end with a surprising little twist, and if you’re not the Rambo type, you might consider it well worth watching. And, hey, at least you won’t be one of those desperate losers anymore trying to figure out what the hell went wrong with America! Now you know.

While browsing for a more reliable source of recommendations for edifying movies than Christianity Today last night (any site rating “Pan’s Labyrinth” higher than “Amazing Grace” must be about as “Christian” as George Bush, and we all ought to know by now how far his “Christianity” really goes), I finally came upon “Crosswalk,” a site not free of the hyper-patriotic and warmongering mindset of US-Insanity Today, either, but at least not as mind-warped & pseudo-intellectually twisted. So, if you’re looking for edifying movies, that’s the site, we’d presently recommend, rather than CT.

Before we found Crosswalk, there were a few other sites, recommending what they considered the “best” movies, say, of 2006, and one recommendation that caught my eye was “Shut Up and Sing,” the documentary with and about the Dixie Chicks, and particularly what happened after their statement in London in 2003, that they were ashamed of Bush being from Texas.

Being a big-mouth-afflicted artist myself, who has refused to go the way of all flesh for the sake of popularity, naturally my heart went out for the girls, and we thoroughly enjoyed watching their metamorphosis from “merely a Country band” into a “furious voice for the truth.

Even though it becomes clear during the course of the film that the Chicks are not promoting Christian values or view points, it’s almost as if God winked an eye and anointed them to a somewhat prophetic voice against the insanity and hypocrisy that so many people have the audacity to actually call “Christianity.”

Of course, the whole incident reminds one of the episode with John Lennon and the Beatles in the 60s, after John’s prognosis that Christianity would vanish, and, after all, they were more famous than Jesus.

I ran a Google check recently, ”Beatles” vs. “Jesus,” and while the Beatles yielded a whopping 54.000.000 results, Jesus took the cake with 180.000.000. So, this just shows how fleeting fame and popularity are in this world. You may be more famous than Jesus one day, but then, never underestimate immortality: it’s got something that’s going to catch up with you sooner or later.

So, in the long run, John was wrong about that one. Nevertheless, he was right about a lot of other things he said. For instance, that New York is like the Rome of today. Or “All You Need Is Love” (providing you truly believe that God IS love, and that He’s capable of supplying all your needs, that is). Or “Give peace a chance!” (Remember, it was the time of the Vietnam war, a situation very similar to the present rape of Iraq).

We Christians have a saying, “There is no peace without the Prince of Peace,” but I also believe that it works the other way around: “Where there’s no peace, there the Prince of Peace isn’t, either,” no matter how ardently one may profess to believe in Him, or claim to have exclusive rights as His representatives on earth.

What people don’t realize is that He Himself prophesied that there would be many speaking and acting in His name, whom He would not recognize as His, but whom He will tell at the end of the world, “Depart from Me; I never knew you!”

Personally, I can’t blame folks for not buying into the kind of “Christianity” most people are selling as such, and I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if what Jesus said comes true, and there will be many from the East and the West, who will enter into His Kingdom before those who call themselves the children of the Kingdom.

As far as I’m concerned, I’d much rather see the Dixie Chicks there than pseudo-pious mass murderers.

I don’t know about you…

In what is probably one of the currently most popular and widespread political blog entries on the web, Jacob Hornberger, founder and president of The Future of Freedom Foundation, sheds a little light on what he calls “Bush’s Freedom Delusion.”

While – as a believer in the afterlife – I don’t necessarily agree with him that “Dead people cannot experience freedom,…” I do agree that that’s probably not the kind of freedom the Iraqi people were hoping for. It reminds one of the joke about the preacher in the Wild West who asked his crowd who wanted to go to Heaven, and everybody raised his hand. Then a drunk gun slinger stands up and says, “You’re not asking that question the right way, Preacher!” – pulls his guns, and asks, “Now, who wants to go to Heaven?!”

I guess Bush’s idea of “Heaven” or “Freedom” differs somewhat from that of most clear thinking folk, as does that of those “religious broadcasters,” who can give a standing ovation and shout “Amens” to such a farce.

If that’s freedom, then who wants it? If that’s the kind of people we’ll meet in Heaven, then who wants to got there?

Rightly, Hornberger questions, “If freedom and democracy really was the be-all and end-all for President Bush, would he really have spent the last several years funneling millions of dollars in U.S. taxpayer aid to his close friend and partner Pervez Musharraf, the unelected brutal military dictator of Pakistan? The reason that Bush has never supported democracy in Pakistan is because it might produce a regime that isn’t favorable to the U.S. government.

It made me wonder. What is it, then, that makes us, in the West, worthy of the luxury of democracy, while other people are having paid dictators to keep them enslaved? What quality is it that makes us bona fide candidates for that oh, so glorious golden and shiny bluebird of happiness, Democracy?

You’re not going to like my conclusion.

It’s the fact that we’re already brainwashed. They managed to make us believe their hogwash ever since we were kids in school, and they ensure that we stay brainwashed by bombarding us with the same old tunes over and over and over again: when you pick up a magazine at the dentist’s, when you turn on the tube or the radio, when you go to church, work, or school… They don’t have to worry about us anymore.

It’s like the old story about black Sam, who was a slave on some cotton farm in the South before the Civil War. One day his master asked him, “Sam, how come you’re a Christian, and yet you seem to be having so many problems? I don’t even believe in God & don’t have nearly as many troubles as you.” Sam had to think about that for a while before he was ready to answer. But a few days later, they went on a duck hunt, and there Sam’s master told him to collect the wounded ducks and leave the dead ones lay. Sam came back with a big grin to his master after the hunt & said, “I now have the answer to your question, Boss! You see, I’m a live one. The Devil’s trying to get me bagged, and that’s why he’s giving me so many troubles. You’re a dead duck! He’s already got you in his bag, that’s why he’s leavin’ you alone.”

Most of us who enjoy democracy only have that privilege because the Devil’s already got us in his bag. We think we’re free, and take the freedom to give that same freedom to other helpless nations at the point of a gun, or at least we pay our corrupt leaders to do it, or give standing ovations to speeches he actually made us believe that he believed their content himself.

Apparently even Hornberger seems to believe that. Well, that’s one more point I disagree with him on. Guess one day we’ll know.

In any case, now we know – or at least I know what makes us liable for democracy: a propaganda machine that operates so well that it can keep the masses perfectly enslaved without them even noticing it. We even applaud our oppressors.

If this is freedom, it makes me wonder if the Iraqis aren’t truly the luckier ones in this deal…

060 Inconvenient Truths

Last night, under the motto, “better late than never,” we watched Al Gore’s film “An Inconvenient Truth.” A bit late, since I have developed a natural distrust toward politicians in general, but during the course of the film I couldn’t help but imagining what a different place this world might be right now, if Al Gore would have won the presidential elections in 2000…
Being a creationist, it may sound odd for me to say that I would have preferred a president who believes in Evolution to one who even passed a bill in favor of creationism in parts of his country, but I kept saying, “This man is intelligent.” I mean, he’s actually capable of formulating entire grammatically correct phrases in a row without problems. Not to mention the actual sincere concern not only for his own country, but the entire planet, which one can tell is real by a look into his eyes, and not some permanent hideous smirk of one who knows he’s only in power because of nasty trickeries, deceptions and frauds.
It confirms what I’ve been saying throughout this blog, such as in my articles about Gandhi or Yusuf Islam, better known as the former pop star Cat Stevens: It doesn’t matter what somebody claims to believe, actions speak louder than words.
Or what I’ve said about the Pharisees: the religious leaders of Jesus’ day basically believed or professed to believe the same things Jesus did, they read the same Scriptures and called the same God their Father.
But Jesus corrected them, and told them, that’s what they thought, but in reality they were children of the Devil.
It doesn’t matter if one believes or claims to believe all the right things in their heads. If their heart isn’t right, it’s of no avail. “By their fruits ye shall know them” (Mt.7:20).
I recently discovered a wonderful web preacher, who pretty much happens to defend the same point as I, that many people who call themselves Christians, but in reality give ear to doctrines that “tickle the ear” are simply sincerely deceived, and subject to the spirit of witchcraft, and that they may have another thing coming…
It’s kind of encouraging to know that I’m not the only lunatic on the web preaching such things, although my degree of lunacy probably goes a few degrees further than that of Monica Dennington.

So, the gist is, even if George Bush really believed what he claims to believe in, (which I personally doubt, but even if he did,) I believe the world would have been better off with Al Gore for president. But I suppose, this world isn’t destined for any genuine and lasting improvement or salvation brought by our own hands, because the point God is precisely trying to make is that no matter how many good intentions there may be, we’re just going to make a mess of things without Him. In fact, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions,”
“and many there be which go in thereat” (Mt.7:13,14), (not to mention those with less than good intentions).

On the other hand – being the skeptic I am, especially when it comes to politicians – perhaps the whole things is just part of the plan of making Christians – and especially Creationists – look so stupid that it won’t be hard to convince the rest of the world that they’d all be better off without them.

According to newsclips from today, about one fifth of Americans is practically illiterate.

In return, they saw to it that one fifth of Iraqis have lost their homes or lives, and American soldiers rape one third of their female comrades.

Add all that up and you get nine tenth of Americans so proud of their country, they’d just about eliminate five quarters of every god-d…… s.o.b. who’d dare to differ from their point of view (that America is the god-d…… greatest country there ever was on this god-d…… planet).
