Critical Race Theory and the Church

The most troublesome characteristic of Critical Theories is that they are absolutely opposite of the Bible:

1) all sin is permanent, based only on skin color and never on actions – God cannot forgive or remit sin

2) white people are always the sinners: everyone else is innocent and oppressed

3) the Word of God is not sufficient and can only be understood by reading CRT books

4) people who are not white have “special knowledge” based upon stories they tell instead of facts. The stories are superior to facts and over rule facts.

5) justice is whatever a not white person says is justice, because they have “special knowledge” and “white people cannot understand” and is based only on stories.

And many churches are teaching CRT and apologizing (sin cannot be forgiven so there is no repentance, only continuous apology) for the color God created the people in them. 1 Tim 4.

How long are we supposed to put up with these socialist saboteurs? It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the Socialist democrats for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House?

I ask, gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Have these Democrats any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of massive corruption, voter fraud, masses of illegal aliens, antifa attacks, false flag mass shooting by Democrat operatives, Trump impersonators to sway and control the Congress that it may neglect its Constitutional duty to validate the very votes the Democrats desperately needed to pass with blind eye that they might seize power completely and unilaterally impose their executive orders to disarm us? No, sir, they have none. Their malice is meant for us; it can be meant for no other. They are purposed to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the Democrats have been so long forging.

And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted?
Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done, to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt.

In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free² if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges of Individual Liberty and God given Constitutional Rights for which we have been so long contending, if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!

They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a Socialist guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power.

Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Washington D.C.! The war is inevitable and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

“Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death!”, Patrick Henry to the Second Virginia Convention on March 20, 1775 at Richmond, VA.


Comorbidities and the Dem Panic of 2020

FaceBook was censoring a screenshot of a web page at the Center for Disease Control, http://cdc.gov. Someone underlined a statement on the page stating that only 6 percent of deaths reported as Covid-2019 were only due to covid: the other 94 percent were deaths from something else, such as extreme old age, which was just aggravated by covid – covid was one of many things which together caused the death. This is a significant statistic when covid positive patients are by government mandate placed in proximity to very vulnerable nursing home patients, who then contract covid and succumb.

One political party hopes to create so much fear in people that they do not vote this fall, most likely because that political party is so extremely out of favor with the American people that they realize they can only win the fall 2020 general election by preventing most people from voting and using their well developed massive (what Harry S. Truman referred to in his auto-biography “Where the Buck Stops” as the powerful democrat electioneering machine) vote fraud using mail-in ballots without any proof of the voter’s identity or awareness that a vote was cast for him.

Watch more than FaceBook – FaceBook has just released a warning that users will be forced to agree to censorship by the radical FaceBook untra-liberal censors. The notice reads:

Effective October 1, 2020, section 3.2 of our Terms of Service will be updated to include: “We also can remove or restrict access to your content, services or information if we determine that doing so is reasonably necessary to avoid or mitigate adverse legal or regulatory impacts to Facebook.”

So, if a radical untra-libertard “is offended” or “someone might possibly feel uncomfortable” you get silenced, thus allowing only pro-leftist ads and posts prior to the election. Draw your news from many sources, and sort it out – most likely they are all lying or distorting to some extent.

“ . . . not to weigh and ponder the rights of different people, but exclusively to emphasize the one right which it has set out to argue for. Its task is not to make an objective study of the truth, in so far as it favors the enemy, and then set it before the masses with academic fairness; its task is to serve our own right, always and unflinchingly.” –1924, Adolf Hitler on the purpose of the media, Mein Kampf, Volume One, Chapter Six

To an almost exclusive extent, this has become the policy of the corporate controlled press, with no real journalists but only party-controlled propagandists. “V “Izvestiyakh” net pravdy, v “Pravde” net informatsii.” – There is no Truth in The News (the Russian paper Izvestiya) and no news in The Truth (the Russian paper Pravda).


It is for us the living, rather

Great Seal of the United States

Some people say that our war fighters died in vain, as antifa and other radical leftist communist / socialists have turned America into a pathetic, radical, violent, lawless, dystopia full of racism and hate mongering specifically intended to destroy America.

Lincoln addressed this very issue in his speech at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania November 19, 1863. Between 46,000 and 51,000 soldiers from both armies were casualties in the three-day battle, the most costly in US history.

It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.    Abraham Lincoln, November 19, 1863

 

It is false that our war fighters died in vain. They died defending our way of life. The issue is that we must now carry on where they had no choice but to stop.

It is now in our hands to have affinity for and to defend the Constitution of the United States, against all enemies, foreign or domestic. As Lincoln said, “from these honored dead we take increased devotion … that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.That is the exact opposite of the socialism that radicals are trying to force us to accept.

That means that it is up to us to end the antifa riots in our cities and remove from power any who we trusted to administrate for us who have in any way facilitated those riots, to restore our economy and expectations that all citizens will work to support themselves, to begin again to enforce our God-given right to Individual Liberty, and with the help of the One Sovereign God, to absolutely and permanently purge all corruption from our government and bring to clear and impartial Justice by due process our employees who have betrayed our trust and their oath of office by using their official position to commit high crimes and misdemeanors.

And by God’s help, so shall we do.
