Hard Truths for Christians

There are some hard truths that Western Christians need to accept or face total rejection of God in their lives as He does not tolerate lukewarm believers.  Here’s a few of them:

  • Women are not equipped to be pastors or priests.  By equipped, I mean mentally and spiritually equipped.  To be a church leader, you need a certain level of abstract thinking as well as empathy for your congregation.  While woman can have these things, they generally don’t.  Women tend to be more solipsistic than men and they don’t have the time or patience for philosophy.  Besides that, their brains are wired to think and interact with the world differently than men.  But the most important reason is that St. Paul openly stated that he does not permit women to teach men.
  • Wives are to submit to their husbands in all things and defer to their leadership, even if they are not providing any.  This is a guideline laid out by both Peter and Paul in their letters.
  • Divorce is only valid if a spouse has committed adultery.  All other cases are a sin.
  • Pornography is not adultery.  It is a failure to fuck your wife (hat tip to Davis Aurini).
  • Homosexuality is openly condemned in the Bible and any Christian who denies this is not a true believer.  Yes, there are plenty of other sinful lifestyles one can engage in.  But in our post-modern society, homosexuality is the only one that is so completely accepted to the point that most people are upset to see a 12-year-old boy twerking at a gay pride parade.  In the Bible, it is considered an abomination and an unnatural lust.  It is never referred to as anything less than a sinful lifestyle.
  • Equality is not a virtue in the Bible.  In fact, the only time such a concept is mentioned, it is in referring to Jesus’s status next to His Father.  Human beings are never equal to each other.  Keep in mind that this doesn’t mean we aren’t under the same judgment from God for our sin, just that we are not the same.  And praise God because it would be a boring world if we were equal.
  • Love is an action not a feeling.  When God loves us, he does so in a manner similar to a loving father and mother both nurturing and disciplining their children.  While not exactly like God’s love for us, it is a close proximity.  With that in mind, just because you “love” someone doesn’t mean you have to accept what they do or who they are when they are steeped in sin.  A truly loving person would tell such a person that they need to get better, to strive to be a better person through the salvation of Jesus and the grace His sacrifice confers to us.
  • Forgiveness is not a feeling.  Too often I hear of Christians stating that you have to forgive people no matter what or resentment will grow in your heart.  This is hardly true as we are instructed to forgive others but only when they are sorry.  God Himself sets this example by not forgiving those who do not accept Jesus.  So forgive those who wrong you and subsequently apologize but you need not forgive those who do not apologize to you.
  • Your emotions are not an indicator of your faith nor your morality.  Too often I see people who go to churches or worship services to simply get their joy fix from the worship.  Then they go home and continue to do the terrible things which go against God’s will for us.  Your faith is more than just a feeling and feeling good at a worship service doesn’t necessarily mean your heart is right with God.  Faith is the knowledge of things hoped for in God.
  • You can judge others, especially fellow believers.  We hear the often quoted verse “Judge not lest ye be judged yourself” from Jesus’s sermon on the mount.  The trouble is, it is often out of context and was intended to highlight the perils of hypocrisy when casting judgment on others.  In truth, we are to judge others when they sin, especially our brothers and sisters in Christ because that makes for a healthy body.
  • More is required than prayer and worship.  When we are on God’s side, he wants us to fight for him within our own ranks and to openly confront false teachings and sinners.  St. Nicolas (later known as Santa Claus) was known to have punched a man during the Council of Nicaea for spreading false teaching.  While this is an extreme example, it is not too far fetched to get physical with those who lead others astray.  Phineas speared a man who was sleeping with a temple prostitute in Numbers and he was granted a blessing from God that he and his descendants would be high priests.  Understand that words and prayers are usually not enough, especially when dealing with cancerous elements within our own ranks.
  • You don’t have to be nice.  I’ve been told that I am too mean at times when I confront people.  Whether I am right or wrong is often immaterial.  I was mean and therefore I am a bad person.  Such nonsense.  Whether I am nice or mean, what you should consider is whether or not I am right.  Feelings don’t equate to morality.
  • Circumcision is not a requirement of Gentile believers.  This was made very clear in Acts when the Apostles settled the matter.  So unless you are a Jew for Jesus, don’t circumcise your sons.
  • Murder means more than just intentional killing of another person.  There was no Hebrew word for manslaughter and as such, when “Thou Shall Not Murder” was made into a commandment, it meant you were liable for a person’s death whether you meant it or not.  So look out for the safety of others in everything that you do lest you bring blood-guilt upon yourself.

These are things that our post-modern society fails to understand, even among our more hardcore believers.  It amazing when I point out that women shouldn’t be priest how so many people demand to know where that is in the Bible or just cover their ears and shout to drown out the badthink.

I know these are jagged pills to swallow for many Christians, but they need to be swallowed, especially as our enemies are closing in on us.  We need to stand up for what is right and holy and stop trying to make peace with those whose stated position is to eradicate us.

Pope Courts the Devil

The current pope seems to be more interested in allying himself with the wicked more so than with God:

The Vatican added yet another strange bedfellow to its expanding ecological alliance Wednesday, hosting anti-capitalist eco-crusader Naomi Klein at a conference on saving the planet.

Klein, author of "This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate," acknowledged Wednesday that, "as a secular Jewish feminist," she never expected to be invited to the Vatican.

But she told a Vatican news conference that Pope Francis' recent encyclical on the environment and the global economic system that is threatening it spoke to her. She said the manifesto should inspire those who use the Bible to defend human domination of nature and deny climate change to change their ways.

While I am aware that we are to love our enemies as Jesus commanded, he never said we were to court them and their ideas.

Make no mistake, these eco-crusaders are nothing more than power-hungry anti-Christians.  You don’t convert these people easily as it would take a literal act of God to do so in the same fashion that St. Paul was converted on the road to Damascus.

And this is not an isolated incident for Pope Francis either.  His science advisor is an atheist who worships Gaia.

These are not people you consort with if you wish to have your faith remain in tact.  I know that Pope Francis is big on helping the poor and by all accounts appears to be a Socialist, but he forgets that Socialism also requires the eradication of religion (see Robert Owen).

In essence, we are witnessing a pope who worships the State and behaves as Rev. Straik in C.S. Lewis’ That Hideous Strength more so than a genuine believer of Jesus.

And that is a danger to all of us.  When the world’s top religious leader seeks to bring about Utopia on Earth, the end result is never a good one.

More Magic Thinking

Magic thinking dominates the minds of those who are in charge of our government these days.  They believe that if they make a law, mandate, or judgment, it becomes reality.  Even the bureaucracy, which implements these policies, more or less believes that they can change reality.

In short, our leaders, be they politicians, law makers, executives, or judges, believe themselves to be gods among us.  And while this belief may not be a conscious thought in their minds, their behavior suggests otherwise.

Last week, the Supreme Court issued many rulings that flew straight in the face of the United States Constitution, which they were supposed to defer to.  First, they upheld the Affordable Care Act, then ruled that racism lawsuits can be made on the mere suspicion of racism, and finally ruled that marriages can occur with members of the same sex.

Over a century ago, the Supreme Court ruled that a tomato was a vegetable and not a fruit, as science tells us.  For a time, they had also ruled that the death penalty was a cruel and unusual punishment though that ruling was overridden.  And they have said that murder is fine and good, provided the victim was yet to be born from his or her mother.

In truth, the Supreme Court justices have a long history of engaging in magic thinking in order to override the staunch reality and truths which dictate our world.  This is why when they say that marriage licenses need to be issued for members of the same sex, I understand it to mean that either they believe that sex is not a genetic condition or that lust is the only justification for marriage.

I wonder if our country, our culture is too introspective and thinks too abstractly.  We tend to view events through a scope of supposed objectivity while at the same time declaring that morality is a subjective as we believe reality to be.  Even economists seem to believe that they can control the interactions of millions of people.

The main reason why I am a political nihilist is because I don’t believe in magic thinking.  I don’t believe that my thoughts can alter reality nor do I believe that government action can do so.  No matter what I think or what others think, there is an objective reality, an objective truth.  And despite our best efforts to ignore it, it often breaks through in surprising and unexpected ways.

So I refuse to accept the reality that these hacks are trying to impose on me.  I refuse to recognize what they claim to be romantic love between two men or two women to be anything more than lust.  Because that is what it is.

I refuse to accept that making it illegal to lack health insurance will make it affordable for everyone.  Because in reality it does not.

And I refuse to believe in such a thing as racism.  Because racism is in reality an attack against an opposing culture, not a race.  Race is merely a classification in taxonomy.  Culture is much, much more than that.

I encourage you to do the same.

The Pride of the Midwits

Our society holds up intelligence as a virtue more so than most other societies in the history of mankind.  Sure, there were always advisors whose wisdom and insights were sought out, but intelligent people of today are in much higher proportions than in the past.

The trouble is, we take pride in our intelligence and this ends up being our folly.

There are many ranges of intelligence.  Most people fall within the average IQ range, which is between 90 and 110 (I think, the scales may vary).

Above the average, you have what I like to refer to as midwits.  I’ve not taken any official tests, but I’m fairly sure that I fall into this category given my frustrations in explaining concepts to other people.  However, I am not a genius and I freely admit that.

I’d say a midwit is someone whose range is above average but either not quite genius level are barely genius level.

Midwits are intelligent in their own right.  They are able to take on highly technical jobs and with time and experience can excel at them.  I am a software developer by trade and that kind of job requires very high-level abstract thinking, something that does not come easily to average people.

Midwits tend to be the geniuses in their government schools.  They usually don’t encounter people with true genius level IQs.  This is because those kind of people are few and far between.

But when they do encounter such people, they are often seized with extreme levels of envy.  For you see, most of them had to work hard to be as intelligent as they are but when someone comes along and is able perform complex calculations and layers of thinking which comes naturally to them.  And that burns them up.

The fact is, many of our assorted leaders in the world tend to be midwits, at least in the West.  This means that they tend to be arrogant in their assumptions because they were the best in their schools and were not humbled for their intelligence.

And this is why they are a dangerous bunch.  They pride themselves on being better than everyone else yet they are barely better.  Being above average is merely being slightly better than other people.  It doesn’t mean you’re leaps and bounds above the average folk.

As an example of this, when Milton Friedman asked Senator Ted Kennedy why he supported Socialism after decades of failures, he simply stated that it hasn’t worked because he (Kennedy) wasn’t in charge of it.

And that is the pride of the midwit in our aristocracy.  They are barely more intelligent than the average American but they still cling to stupid ideas that they believe make them look like geniuses.

Don’t humor them.

The Tide of Degenerates

Degenerates.

The word evokes a kind of revulsion among English speaking people.  It often brings pictures of horribly disfigured people engaging in acts of perversion.

But degenerates are usually not that obvious.  They are not abominations nor are they necessarily perverts.

Put simply, degenerates are people who engage in activities which seek to harm society and civilization as a whole.  They are people who, for whatever reason, believe that they are doing good when in fact they are courting demons.

To degenerate is to break down.  The degenerates among us tend to do this, even if their intentions are “pure”.

An example would be the feminist backlash against Sir Tim Hunt, who made a simple joke about women in science labs.  As a result, the degenerates, many of whom never knew who he was or were in the least bit affected in any way by his comments, decided to ruin his remaining career because of hurt feelings and badthink.

This is what degenerates do: they tear down things which they cannot do themselves because they are driven by hatred and envy.  They hate that they cannot do the things that great men (and women) can do and instead try to destroy it.

They spout nonsense like “Unity through diversity” and “transphobic” and “white privilege”.  Never mind that none of those things make sense nor do they actually exist outside of the abstract thoughts of people with mental illnesses.

They are people who do not forgive, never forget, and will constantly push your buttons if they ever set their sights on you.

Don’t give in to them.  It took them 9 years to get Vox Day expelled from the Science Fiction Writers Association (I think that’s right) because he refused to apologize for who he is and he refused to give in to their demands.

Don’t apologize to people like that, especially when they demand apologies.  They will keep attacking.  Make them force your employers to fire you and then sue your employers for wrongful termination.  Make them threaten you with death threats and then call the police and have them arrested.

The only way to stop them is fight them, not compromise with them.  They are destroying civilization as we know it and all you can do is say that we shouldn’t be so mean to them because we’ll become them.

No one built any civilization by being nice.  The history of humanity is full of suffering and misery inflicted by degenerates with the civilized, reasonable people fighting back.

I know I’m ranting, but I am so sick of these people getting center stage and being celebrated for being degenerate.  It’s like the elites who danced with the robot while the workers rebelled in the movie Metropolis.

Don’t be those people.  Fight for your future.  Have children and raise them correctly.  Fight against the coming destruction.  Stop these self-righteous bastards from taking over.  Because mass graves await those who do not fight back.
