"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man."

Ever Wonder Why

 


Ever wonder why people say, "money and power" it's in that order and not "power and money"?


Because if you are trying to get power, one of the ways is through money. 


Power in of itself cannot get at money (unless it is abusing power through corruption).


Ever wonder what comes before money?

Corruption in Sin



Corruption of the soul or the practice of sin, hampers the sinner from having real connections.


Because the veil of sin blocks and taints the soul, poisons the mind and heart of the sinner.  


Without the connection to the Holy Spirit, the sinner becomes vulnerable to even more and greater corruptive practices.  


Locked behind the self infected prison of sins the danger of eternal damnation greatly increases, especially if the sins involve harming innocents.  


Therefore, it is vital to not only guard against sin and sinners corrupting, and be vigilant, but also maintain a healthy spiritual process of identifying sin, confessing the sin, repenting and atoning in order to once again connect and receive the Holy Spirit.  


Without real connections with even oneself in spiritual harmony with the Lord and the world, there are no relationships not tainted or blocked by sin.  


In other words, no true intimacy or true "careless whispers of a good friend".*


The lies or sinful behaviors will accrue until dealt with in the process of redemption.  


Therefore, it is vital for ones salvation to maintain and have a process by which to clean oneself up and free oneself from the prison of corruption and spiritual rot in sins.  


The unhealthy practice of blaming others, especially the victim, only prevents the sinner from receiving salvation or any kind of real fellowship in love.  


There is no situation or excuse where sin is allowed, because any kind of sin corrupts and becomes damning. 


There is a vast difference between realizing that we may all have faults and accepting the grooming fallacy that we are all sinners, because not everyone is a liar or a sinner, thus as sinners we should be accepting of sin, corruption and ultimately damnation (fallacy).  


The fact that so many churches fall prey to this type of grooming by sinners with reams of excuses to continue sinning and harming, is troubling.  


Churches that become susceptible to grooming no longer are beacons of Light and Life.


Because the churches fall prey to corruption (in sinful complicity and even collusion of sin) preach bypassing redemption and therefore salvation altogether, these churches no longer have the moral authority to direct or shepherd the spiritual life of its congregants.


Therefore, it falls upon the lay person and congregation to ensure and check the quality of the church, the ministers and priests to make sure that they do not also fall prey to the grooming in sin and corruption in hypocrisy and damnation.

No more forgiving and forgetting sins (in perversion of scripture and sacrilege).


No more white washing sins, lies, fraud, abuses, sexual abuses,  harassments, sedition and crimes against humanity.  


No more corruption.  


It is completely wrong and sacrilegious to use scripture to continuously sin and abuse.  


When you bypass redemption the actual process by which the sinner can be forgiven by the Lord, sins are never cleansed through the confession of sins, repentance and atonement.  


With no morals, there is no moral authority, no integrity in ethics, then no moral standing or any standing with the Lord;


There will be no credibility, no trust, no truth and no salvation.  


Matthew 7:21-23 (ESV) - ' 23 


And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness. '






Why is it that I feel as if some people are stuck in the past of  
archaic relevance, never updated?  


Playing on game boards long turned into dust, on its mirages of the distant past?  


Not understanding the light speed of technology and prosperity (once formed, invested and built upon) and what it means in relation to power and sustainability.  


It's as if an antiquated mastermind, lost in concepts of power and control way past its prime, acting like the world can spin backwards in time, is constantly manipulating to hold the world back from prosperity and peace.  


And that people are brainwashed into thinking that the world can actually spin backwards;


I feel like saying the year is 2023, not 1950s or even 1990; the Cold War long over these past thirty some years.  


In that time, the world has gone digital, transitioned over to the Web, carry supercomputers in its pockets, and can connect to anywhere in the world with a touch of a button. 


And the world has made far reaching advancements in healthcare and technology at super light speed (that few back then can imagine) and countless upgrades.


So why are some still not with it, not upgraded and cannot see the vast differences between the times?  


And not understanding and never figuring out why that in the long run, after all the chips are counted, things will never turn out the way schemed.


Grandiose Ponzi schemes in lies and fraud will not lead to innovations that will lead to the knowledge of prosperity and peace and ultimately, power.


Knowledge is power, not hate.  


Hate can't innovate or dispel ignorance; and tripping on power, blinded by hate or greed or any one of the deadly sins, will not achieve wisdom or enlightenment and ultimately, power.


The loss of credibility and respectability and bad practices in archaic ignorance leads to losses of knowledge, prosperity standing and real power.


Do you think doubling down on liabilities and sins perpetually is sustainable?  


That bankruptcy, economic depression and damnation will somehow lead to greater wealth and power?  


No matter how ruthless or power tripping invincibility a mastermind is, it still will not lead to the knowledge needed to become a superpower.  


Neither will weapons generate the knowledge needed to sustain the title of superpower.  


Neither will turning the world into a starving wasteland turn back time.


Or bring on salvation.

Do you feel like you somehow landed in the world of the Wizard of Oz? 


And the Munchkins there all want you to believe in this great powerful Wizard of Oz.  


And you know you landed in the land of make believe, so you wait for a Toto to pull back the curtains for the great reveal; 


except no one does, because unlike the Cowardly Lion all are too frightened to seek courage, find the truth and dispel the fear.  


And until the day the curtain is pulled back, the truth revealed, all will never see home.

As Christians, I feel it is our duty to uncover the lies and shine light on the truth and live the way as taught by Christ.


I feel it dangerous to have religion be manipulated by Caesar or those with aspirations of power.  


As I feel it is dangerous for news reporting to blindly cover the lies told as news without some additional clarification. 


In this new age of tele-manipulation, sticking to the facts of covering the lies spun are not actual news coverage, but added propaganda in amplifying the lies spoken.  


There has to be added coverage of additional critical thinking consequences of the lies.


In other words connect the dots in an additional timeline of the facts and consequences or at least, an asterisk of slander under investigation or links to consequences of fraud or simple bullet points of the facts checked.


There are simply not enough defenses against lies, slander half truths and outright manipulation of the truth.  


And reporting on propaganda lies is not really reporting real news at all; news based upon truth, facts and issues facing the world today (the manipulation of the news as a tool for gain).  


I feel the news has become like the sermons railing against sins then bypassing salvation by whitewashing sins in the forgiveness of sins without first the clean up of sins in redemption; the confession and repentance of sins in atonement.


Without redemption the sinner will never receive salvation.  


Without defense against the manipulation of the truth, slander, and hate then the news is not news, but a weapon of propaganda in lies or half baked truths. 


It is time to bring the reporting of the news into the new era of defending against weaponized propaganda; as is it time to keep Caesar out of our churches and purity of spirituality and Christ's teaching in.  


The Lord should always come first as in "love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.


This is the first and great commandment.


And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.


On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets".*




*Matthew 22 :37-40 (KJV)

When you allow for autocratic power, the next freedoms to be lost would be your own; 


The next freedoms after that would be your children's and after that your children's children.


Because the terrifying truth to power unchecked is corruption unchecked, since absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Jesus said, "Get away from me, you people who do wrong. I never knew you."*


When someone sins, does wrong, that person changes their original purpose and character.  


The sinner, a person who does wrong, is unrecognizable from the person he or she began as a child and not the person the Lord meant for them to be.  


Therefore, the person doing wrong, the sinner, will also never know his or her real self.  


Ironic because the sinner is all about themselves, always me, me, me, but in selfish desires and insatiable sins, such as lust and greed, and is therefore, detached from their real self and attached to sins where there is no me.


For instance, the sinner will also see the world only through the eyes of sin (greed will only see $ dollar signs, the object of their greed; hater will only see hate, the object of their hate).


The wall built behind sins cannot be attached to anything or anyone in reality, including themselves (idolized versions), because everything becomes objectified through sin.


Jesus said, "I never knew you", because the sinner does not know himself (or sold out himself to sin or gave into selfish desires in harm);


Whatever the reason, the sinner is no longer attached to the person of oneself, but to sins, so there is no me in them anymore.


The only relationship the sinner has is with sin.




*Matthew 7:23, Bible Gateway Easy-to-read version

Kindred,


Why the extreme divisiveness?


Sometimes it is not a matter of either or.  


For example, where can a train go if there are no railways for it to chug along on?  


What purpose can a railway serve if there are no trains to use its rails?  


It is illogical to expect one to function properly without the other, both are needed.  


And at other times, we can walk and chew gum at the same time.  


There is no need to limit our strategies when it comes to fighting climate change or disease or hunger or a myriad of world problems.


Perhaps before we tackle any problem, we need to figure out better ways to connect, communicate and respect one another in fellowship.  


Then we can come up with and work on better strategies and solutions.

Kindred, 


There are no correlations between positivity and negativity.


"Positivity refers to the quality or state of being positive. 


It encompasses an optimistic outlook, constructive thinking, and a focus on favorable aspects of life. 


When we exhibit positivity, we engage in positive behaviors, experience positive emotions, and approach challenges with resilience and hope. 


It’s not merely a trait but an intentional practice that contributes to our well-being and interactions with others."*


Negativity "refers to the quality or state of being negative. 


It encompasses a negative outlook, negative thinking, and a focus on unfavorable aspects of life.


When we exhibit negativity, we engage in negative behaviors, experience negative emotions and approach challenges with pessimistic outlooks and at times hopelessness. 


It’s not merely a trait but an intentional practice that encompasses an attitude which considers only the bad qualities in people and in life."**


Positivity and negativity are polar opposites.  


When we are positive we generate positive energy or positive qi; 


And when negative we generate negative energy or negative qi polar opposites.


When we practice positivity, we produce positive karma; and when we practice negativity, we produce negative karma.


The same concepts occur when we practice spirituality. 


Sowing good deeds with grace and reverence for the sacred, produces holy spiritual energy. 


Casting stones and committing sins of disrespect and dishonor for the Lord's creations, produces unholy energy.


There are no correlations between holy and unholy.  


They are polar opposites.


One leads to salvation and the other leads to damnation.  


Therefore, it is unreasonable, unrealistic and nonsensical to think that torture and abusive and sinful practices which are negative and sinful will turn into something positive or lead to salvation.


A person practicing positivity and spirituality has nothing to do whatsoever with another person practicing harm and sins.  


It is completely delusional to think controlling someone through negativity will result in any kind of positive or inspirational ideas.  


Crimes, corruption and sins are damning. 


And the practice of harm, abuse and torture are sins and crimes against humanity.  


The outcomes of those kinds of unholy practices are negative, destructive and damning by its very nature.  


Do not conflate and confuse positivity with negativity, grace with sins, salvation with damnation or one person's talents or actions with another.


Muddling or whitewashing the truth does not change the facts or what transpired.  


Once an action is taken, positive or negative, the Rubicon is crossed towards either positivity or negativity, holy or unholy.  


Those actions taken are marked upon the character and soul of the person and cannot be changed by words alone.  


If one has sinned, the one has to embark upon the process of redemption in order to cleanse and be once more upon the path of "the Way, the Truth and the Life"*** salvation.

When checking your conscience, ask, would you like the same things to happen to you?



If the answer is no, you would not want the same things to happen to you, then ask, would you like the same things to happen to your children?



And if the answer is no, you would not want the same things to happen to your children, then ask, how badly do you not want the same things to happen to you and your loved ones?
