If it were not so tragic, the following would be almost comical. The irony of it. Think about this.

People believe in the theory of Darwinian evolution. It will always be a theory because the information cannot be proven since it is so far in the distant past that it cannot be observed. Bang! As in Big! But many accept it as truth. They have been conditioned to believe evolution as fact, even though it is called the theory of evolution. Theory is confused with fact, truth, and reality. Many see an illusion which has been spun for them. 

But trust the science.

Events unfold right in front of us. There is also plenty of documentation with regard to things to which we may not be eyewitnesses, if one is willing to search it out. Yet the media says it is or isn’t so. Once again people let someone else determine their thinking and “truth” without proof. Once again people “believe.” You can see it for yourself. You can prove it for yourself. Truth without proof is a spoof!

But trust the science instead, because we say so.

The same people who believe in Darwin’s unobservable and thus unproven theory blindly accept it from pre school to post graduate schools, and beyond. The tale has been spun so frequently and so loudly by every “authoritative” voice, that most – conditioned by education and other “reliable” systems – will give their amen, “It is so!” 

We are “the faithful” who trust the science.

Much that is actually happening, documented, and documentable, however, is regarded as “conspiracy theory” because many have been conditioned not to notice what goes on right in front of their faces, to not question what they are told by tried and trusted sources, to not “do their homework” as the saying goes. 

But they have been taught to trust the science.

People have been conditioned to accept unprovable theories as truth, and observable, documentable facts (or history with documented scientific method, not the scientific method) as lies. This is a form of blindness and is often brought on by a failure to ask questions due to fear or laziness. 

It’s just better to trust the science.

If humans are nothing more than another branch of monkey-hood, perhaps this better explains how so much 21st century behavior becomes more and more animal like, combative, savage, and depraved. But “we are evolving” because we who trust the science we have been told to believe that we are improving. 

So we go on trusting the science.

And since so many trust that science, the science, is it any wonder they still trust the current  proclaimed science they’ve been told to trust, when it comes to some other matters in the here and now – especially with regard to accepting into their own bodies modalities which will further dumb them down into manageable mechanized slaves, if not kill off the majority? 

But by all means, trust the science. 

If you believe you’re an evolved ape, then by all means, may you be rewarded with another banana, as you trust the science.

An idea with appeal, but ever so slippery.

PS: Theoria (θεωρία) is Greek for contemplation (literally, to view or witness, to behold something as a spectator). It is said that the word theory comes from this root. If that is so, then evolution does not even qualify as a theory, because it is not beheld by any spectators!

But trust us on the science anyway; after all, we have your best interests at heart. We value you. Hmmm.

It used to be called science, but there’s that, and now there’s the science.

What Are You Lookin’ At?

The more I stay off the Internet, especially well known video platforms where there are lots of “channels”, and even the alt news sources, the more functional and alive I feel. No, don’t worry. This isn’t about sticking one’s head in the sand. It’s about a balanced situational awareness.

WE BECOME WHAT WE BEHOLD. So, what will it be, Christian? An anxious hot mess, or a Christ bearing soul, centered in the only One Who can and has saved you, is saving you, and will save you – as He alone completes that good work in you by His Holy spirit?

Not only the news seems like a bad viewing choice, but also the plethora of differing “theologian apologists” slicing up one another on their dogmatic positions. Ah! The Crusades have become launched anew through technology.

Yes, we need the Truth, but one has to wonder if some of these guys get monetized by certain platforms and are allowed to remain in that “woke” environment because they are good dividers and dissenters. And that is the divide and conquer m.o. of the world, is it not? So it serves to weaken those who can be weakened by it. One guy’s log in the eye turns out to be the other guy’s sliver. Is this for the public square and in good taste? What it does is confirm to the world ITS OPINION that the Church is a ship of fools in mutiny toward one another who agree on nothing. So they continue and are not de-platformed, since they serve “the Agenda.”

One wonders if their God (or idol?) is their position or Jesus Christ.

Sometimes we may need to recognize that while we still have the right to speak, it is also worthwhile to know that we also have the right to be silent. A time and a purpose for everything under heaven.

WE BECOME WHAT WE BEHOLD, according to Psalm 115:4-8, and its almost word for word reference, Psalm 135:15-18. Check that out in its context. It’s about idolatry and the making of and worship of images. Yet there seem to be many who worship the image of their opinions in the name of Christ. Which is worse – actual idolaters, or the ones who don’t know they worship themselves and their views?

Not only is there a time for every purpose under heaven, but a place as well. Is the place for it a public electronic venue?

Just sayin’.

If I recall, St, John the Forerunner directs us to BEHOLD the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world…

” Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace.” So goes that good old hymn.

WE BECOME WHAT WE BEHOLD. “Behold”: to perceive, notice, discern, discover, to turn the eyes, the mind, the attention to anything. It’s not by a casual glance that we are urged to be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2).

That will never happen by continuing to fix our gaze upon the “ain’t it awfuls.”

Fixate instead upon the King of kings and Lord of Lords, the one Who has fully atoned for sin, Who is Christus Victor, Who is returning, to Whom is given all authority in Heaven and on Earth. And fear not.

Soli Deo Gloria!

Unsolicited Mother’s Day Advice

Security tight and in place, but there are still notifications of new “followers” who see public posts. Cyber stalkers. Just got 2 more the last couple of days. Almost always male and little or nothing to show on their profiles. Which means they put up fake profiles they think no one will check out. And what little is there is an impression they want you to see, not really who they are. Often foreign, or claiming to come from some foreign “assignment.” Some people are impressed with that. Not this ol’ mare.

Block them!!! Don’t be so naive as to think you’re going to impart any truth to them. They don’t give a hoot about that. Got to wonder who some of these… creeps… are. Or who they work for. Or what jail they live in.

Everything I post is different for me. I don’t post “public” often. I’d recommend to all us ladies – or especially y’all who keep getting hacked – that as often as possible to post to “friends” only, tighten your security, and frankly be a little suspicious of who “friends” you or “follows” you. By no means post family pictures, especially kids, as public. Or even your pets.

These days with open borders and anybody being able to find who you are and where you are, our own governments hating us and watching every move, and the technological ability to put your face or figure into compromising fake videos which can be shameful and things you’d never ever consent to doing, well – doggone it, be more careful and discriminating!

This world is not what it was even 5 years ago. Social media use is “free” – with a price tag: all your data and biometrics and facial recognition, interests, thoughts, etc. Even if you post your dog as your profile, if your actual photo is or has been anywhere on the ‘net, you’re part of the internet of things, and there are some – like it or not – who do not respect you and see you as a “thing,” not a human being. And they often run these platforms.

That’s the kind of planet we live on now. You can have all the “positive thoughts” you want. Reality is not changed by that. Be creatively cautious – the most “positive” thing you can do.

You can call me a “phobe” of some sort if you want, or as somebody who wears a tinfoil hat. I don’t care. I’ll still warn you. Or maybe you just don’t have enough intel as to how wicked this world has become.

In spite of all that, keep your situational awareness on high alert. Especially in parking lots. Don’t be where you shouldn’t be when you shouldn’t be there. Like dark alleys at night. It’s not worth taking chances.

And, as I like to quote from a commenter whose work I check in with now and then, a former military Colonel who knows the score about the times, “Keep your ears to the ground, eyes on the horizon, prep, pray, and stay out of the way.”

Fair Gray Day

Fishing around to come up with some new lyrics for a favorite old folk tune, The Water Is Wide. Actually it sort of fished for me while I wasn’t even trying. Sometimes it works best like that: just sitting still and being aware of how some sense of things within are oddly content with things without – like a windy, cloudy day.

Hope you enjoy it.

No idea if I posted before. But, if so, reposting…

The Time Has Come

April15, 2019

Nowhere to run – 

that which must be has begun, 

tares from wheat,

bitter from sweet, 

chaff from grain,

sound of mind from all insane, 

dross from gold,

It shall unfold – 

wickedness from all that’s good,

stripped away like bark from wood,

dark from light, left from right, manifest,  

north from south and east from west,

what is cursed from what is blessed.

Murky gray begone from day! 

You shall see – so it must be. 

Lukewarm from hot, 

lukewarm from cold; 

that long hidden must unfold,

coward false from true and bold

So it has been long foretold. 

Don’t you know? 

Nowhere to go.

Just Dropped in for a Short One

So every day I check my iCloud email which gets only special meaningful emails. Or at least that is my intention. Not the gmail one which is all purpose.

Apple apparently thinks it’s ok to send “news” reports being caught up in the cloud as they are. I finally figured out how to get them funneled into the junk folder. “Spam” is not a thing with those. It does not exist, so they still clutter up things and must be deleted.

The curious thing is that almost every one of them begins with, “Here’s what you need to know about…” As someone who loves to write and is allergic to, um, baloney, I can say that they need to know that this is a really dreadfully predictable way to introduce anything anyone really needs to know.

What’s also predictable is that I will put it in the trash folder and delete it without opening it. This also goes for other things that read, “Breaking news!” Or other sensationalist cliches which are intended to bring some “crisis” to your attention, which you already knew 2 weeks ago.

Another favorite is “Bombshell report!” Well, empty shells, bomb or otherwise, don’t pack much of a wallop now, do they? Thud. Clink. Fizzle.

Oh where, oh where have real journalists gone? Hard to be real when you’re told what to say or write, and your 6 or 7 figure a year income makes you keep repeating the same thing you’re told to regurgitate.

That’s why I like hanging with the bloggers. No hype about need to know, breaking news, or bombshells. Just real thoughts from real people.

Until later,

Rain on the Parade

Things as they are: Empires come and empires go. There’s a self destruct mechanism built in to putting out lies, schemes, self interest, and murderous ways. Nothing new under the sun.

It’s just Amerika’s turn as the Empire goes dark, corrupt, and into self destruct mode.

The whole world lies under the power of the evil one, says St. John. Biz as usual. We can be aware, yes. But to go into Chicken Little mode and cry out that the sky is falling, regarding every dark report that comes out? And it’s going to get very dark…

The question is, Whose are you, and therefore who are you?

It’s raining on the parade.

Jesus Christ, to Whom is given all authority in heaven and on earth reigns over all things. Even the parade.

Till next time, off into the blue.

Curiosity and Tin Icons

This morning I ran into an interesting quote. “Curiosity is the lust of the mind.” That came from Thomas Hobbes. (You can look him up.) While I cannot agree with all he embraced as philosophy and beliefs, the quote is a provocative one.

I’ve heard that word “curiosity” bandied about as if with a personal pat on the back, as if it is some sort of virtue. Is it? Or is it a lust, a desire, of the mind?

Paul also addresses this in Ephesians 2:3, where he refers to the desires or lusts of both the flesh and of the mind, as being a part of the unregenerate life – “BC” before Christ.

A Christian may have given up booze, tobacco, drugs, and sex, yet still have PRIDE in the pursuits of information gathering, given its excuse in curiosity, not realizing that this is a form of mental lust no different from physical addictions. Its effect can be the same. It makes a person insensitive to the needs of others and self centered. If it is on the level of addiction.

Especially when everybody has their little “tin icon” cellphone or other “device” into which one may gaze to satiate his mental lust for information, his curiosity. Even religious information. Beware. Forest Gump might say it’s like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get. Truth. Falsehood. In between – that one’s really slippery.

The Greeks of old sat around discussing philosophy. It was their passion. A pass time especially among those with a lot of time and affluence, the leisure class. Think Paul on Mars Hill. Didn’t they call him just a babbler? The “how great I art” of the intellectuals. Oh, those pesky subtle passions! The flesh. The old Adam. The exaltation of the mind with information.

Now many people just isolate themselves from giving and receiving love by gazing into the tin icon. Thus it certainly may serve as the drug of choice of the masses. The new bread and circuses. Maybe even a new techno religion?

Information is the drug of choice for those who may not indulge the lusts of the flesh. The lust of the mind still has its hold on them. The internet info glut also provides faster access to resources for other reading materials. And endless, futile discussions, discussions, and discussions. Books, books, books… “But beyond this, my son, be warned: the writing of many books is endless, and excessive study is wearying to the body.” Ecclesiastes 12:12.

Was it Daniel who pointed out this increase of knowledge and its dangers at the end of days?

Jesus says in Jn 13:34,35 – “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

What Jesus offered was the Way that was and is available to everyone, literate, illiterate, rich, poor. But it was there and is here for the living of it. Not by how much info – old or new – you amass, but how much you resemble Him. That is what matters.

It’s not rocket science and it doesn’t take a seminary degree. It takes offering our heart to the Holy Spirit in godly sorrow for our self indulgence and failure to love, in repentance, and a willingness to surrender to His work in us, and to pray for His power to overcome this subtle thing that is so pervasive today, because so many are addicted to information gathering. That includes the devoutly religious too.

The devices suck us in and enthrall us. Holy Spirit, help us to see this, and empower us to overcome it! Grant us the desire to hate whatever destroys God’s will for us!

It’s interesting that this “desire” of the mind Paul speaks of is from the Greek “thelemata.” Interesting that the most evil man that ever lived, Aleister Crowley, called his demonic spiritual path “Thelema”. Hmmm. Draw your own conclusions. Suffice it to say, that path was all about desire.

And it is this obsession for information that can keep separating people who don’t even realize they are engaging the desires of the mind along these lines!

Let us then put aside the sin that besets us, the addiction of either flesh or mind, and get to the business of actually living a life of Christ love.

Let us hear what Jesus says characterizes His ecclesia.

God’s Goodness Is In All Circumstances

Ponderings… I may have posted something similar previously, but the thought, the concept of this truth, stays with me…

In praying the Psalms, patterns reveal themselves about God being ever present. Perhaps at some point I may do a series on all of them.

Psalm 31:19. Oh how great is Your goodness, Which You have laid up for those who fear You, Which You have prepared for those who trust in You in the presence of the sons of men.

Psalm 23:5. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup overflows.

When reading through this Psalm 31, it becomes evident that King David is experiencing a great amount of adversity. The accounts of his life reveal unimaginable strife, turmoil, conflict, war, affliction, sin, and rebellion. All of these conspired against the right to reign over God’s people tasked to him by the Lord, for which He was anointed. He is a rough type or shadow of Christ, and called a man after God’s own heart.

What becomes clear is that his attention is set above these challenges. The progression of his prayer shows first how he brings his lament over circumstances to the Lord, and he moves into profession of faith :14 – “But as for me, I trust in You. You are my God. My times are in Your hands.”

He then asks for deliverance from his enemies and persecutors, and to be saved out of the circumstances. It was time for the wicked to have their day of shame, even to be silenced in the grave! He boldly calls on the power of God to put down the bullies (my word) who lie and speak insolent things with pride and contempt against the righteous. This seems to be the pivotal point for turning things around – where the prayer changes direction.

What follows is essentially a chorus of praise of God, Who in spite of circumstances works miraculous things, bringing the light of awareness of it into very dark times. Right in front of a world in conflict and opposition with the Lord and His people.

Verses 23 and 24 are strong encouragement to love the Lord and hope in Him. This is for all us saints – those set apart for His plans and specific purposes for each one.

Be of good courage! (A good time to check out Romans 8:18-30) The promise follows, based upon his experiences and knowledge , “He shall strengthen your heart!”

There’s a little meme out there which keeps popping up: “Stay calm and pray a psalm.” You can also sing, chant, read reflectively, or meditate on one as well. This one covers the bases of how prayer can flow, going from a lament over how things are perceived circumstantially, through laying down that view and burden at the Lord’s feet, and then accelerating up into a place of transcending our view of circumstances, by way of declaring and praising God’s goodness and blessing for those who put their trust in Him – in the presence of the sons of men, who will either be full of hatred and envy, or there may be some who will see it who will come to Him in surrender.

This is why the Psalms are often called the prayer book or the hymn book of the Church. Over and over the pattern is made clear, by David and the other very artful inspired sacred song writers who contributed to the Psalms, that our Lord is very interactive in the affairs of those whom He has claimed in Christ Jesus.

The Psalms show us how to make prayer practical and applicable to life.

If our “religion” is not that, making us aware of what a relationship with God looks like, then of what use is it? The cross is the path, and it is not the easy and broad way.

Soli Deo Gloria. Amen.

“Off world” and out into the blue!

Rambling Thoughts on a World at War

There is so much good, beauty, and creativity which our Creator Heavenly Father has brought us into in this life. It is here to enjoy and to bless and to strengthen. All anyone has to do is look out the window or step outside to see it. Or look at the face of someone near and dear, and say, here is the image of God right in front of me.

The electronic devices have us instead peering into the oblong icon of technocracy and its allurements. It becomes more and more difficult for parents to exercise their God given authority to monitor what their children are being exposed to. And certainly the public schools – another “trusted authority” – add to this defilement of children through some teachers and officials who are absolutely unworthy of any sort of trust.

Although it’s clear that there are things that will take place before our Lord returns, there’s a part of me that still cannot, in some ways, fathom that we’re in a space where so many love only the darkness, and want to bring others – especially children – into it and literally work to defile and demoralize them.

A “culture” that also seeks to murder its unborn and infants, to legitimize assisted suicide, to rid itself of the old or infirm, or anyone it regards as “useless” or inconvenient or too expensive, and also continues on its path of (its old favorite) war (asymmetric and eventually kinetic) and destruction in plundering and possessing other people’s stuff, so they can play god and “redistribute” the wealth according to that culture’s atheist ideology, is headed for destruction itself. Whether it can even be regarded as a culture is debatable.

Is it any wonder that John the Apostle makes clear that the whole world (system) is under the power of the evil one?

Go and read the little Book of Jude in the Bible, and see if it is not a depiction of our times. Many will say, Oh, there have always been times such as these. Yet… those times were somewhat regional. Currently these attitudes and afflictions are on a global scale.

As Christ makes clear, “And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It will be hot,’ and it is. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and sky. Why don’t you know how to interpret the present time? And why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right?” Luke 12:55-57. (Berean Study Bible)

The world has been at war for longer than most imagine. That began in Genesis 3.

But still the blessed and the beautiful are present. Because God is present everywhere.

Seek Him with all your heart; seek Him in all you find before you each day; seek Him in His Word which reveals His Son. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you. It is vital to walk with Him now.
