RE: The God pill
^^^ The masses are constantly bombarded with ISIS, North Korean nukes, Assad regime gassing his people, Iran nukes, Russian political meddling, white supremacism, Trump gets two scoops of icecream you only get one, Jewish victimhood, Chinese influence etc

The gigantic (((elephant))) in the room as pointed out by E. Michael Jones goes unnoticed or just by shear cowardice no one speaks of it.

The most saddening of all is even sites like this after all this time and what we have witnessed are filled with subversives that try to point us in different directions and people that refuse to believe.

Until we are all on the same page and not divided. collaboration or addressing solutions is almost impossible. Our enemy knows this well.

RE: The God pill
My main inner conflict these days stems from not knowing whether it's God's will that this earth be a mess or whether any of us should take the time to attempt to "correct" it.

If the latter, then to what extent? I know I'm responsible for me and my family, and to an extent my community, but what about my peoples or my nation (a transient concept, but bear with it).

Should I be a vocal/physical resistor against the grabblers and their influence or should I simply relinquish this world to the devil?

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.

I can only speak for myself here, but the way I worked through many of these issues was first figuring out my beliefs when it comes to God. My beliefs are very different in many ways to what most religions teach. I do tend to agree on what Jesus taught but not much else.

With those beliefs came a feeling of peace. A lot of stuff just wasn't as important any longer. I understood why I am here and what I need to do to make the most out of my time here.

My spiritual growth is my sole purpose here. Many of society's issues are merely a distraction to my purpose. I would go as far as to say that many issues will have a negative impact on my goal.

Do I risk my spiritual growth to deal with those negative aspects? That is a absolute no on that.

I can tell when I am concentrating on the wrong things. That peaceful feeling leaves and I feel all sorts of feelings that is contrary to my end goal. That is why I try and spend time reminding myself of why I am here and what I need to accomplish. That helps center me when I get too involved in politics or society in general. It's a constant battle and it may come to a point where I avoid all the news and politics all together. In all honesty that is probably where I should be heading.

I believe in heaven and I believe we will all end up there. No matter what we do here. So with that belief a lot of issues that would have been a problem aren't as big of a deal for me. This life is a blink in the grand scheme of our existence.

It's very easy to get caught up in the day to day struggles of life and feel hopeless about the direction of the world, and at that point is it helpful to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. The Christian worldview is essentially this: the world was created perfect but then fell into a state of sin and corruption due to man's rebellion against God. Jesus Christ came into the world in order than man might be reconciled back into the Kingdom of God. However, the world itself remains in a fallen state, and will only grow increasingly corrupt until Christ makes his final return, at which point all evil will be forever vanquished and the Kingdom of God will be made manifest in the new heavens and earth. Until that day comes, however, Christians remain citizens of two states: the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Earth. And being that Satan currently has dominion over the Earth, we cannot expect that our remaining time here will be without trial and tribulation. This is the state in which we find ourselves.

That being the case, what is the duty of the Christian in the fallen world? Are we to actively wage violent, physical war against the armies of Satan? Are we to seek to overthrow all worldly rulers and replace them with Christian kings? No. Not at all. Christ specifically instructed that we are to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's, and unto God that which is God's (Matt. 20:21). Paul similarly exhorts us in Romans 13 that we are to submit to the governing authorities, because governments were instituted by God as the means by which general order is best maintained in society. In other words, the fact that Satan exerts control over the machinery of government does not give us license to rebel against governments themselves, as governments are simply tools of order for the maintenance of human life.

The Christian is instead called to battle in spiritual warfare. He is called to resist the Devil (James 4:7), he is called to love God and his neighbor (Matt. 22:36-40), he is called to raise up his children in a godly manner (Prov. 22:6), he is called to condemn sinful behavior when he sees it (1 Tim. 5:20), he is to be kind and forgiving toward others (Eph. 4:32). In short, the Christian is called to behave himself as much as possible in the image of Christ. Did Christ take up the sword against Rome? To the contrary, he allowed himself to be crucified. The Jews expected their Messiah to destroy the Romans and raise up a new kingdom. They didn't understand that the kingdom being raised up was spiritual, not physical (they still don't). They wanted the immediate gratification of Christ raising up an army and slaughtering the Roman legions. That was the only victory they could envision. But God had other plans - he worked through men: through preaching, through humble Christian living, through martyrdom, and above all, through enduring faith. And so it was that Rome was conquered by Christ, not by the sword, but by the successive influence of countless Christians who simply did their best to live as Christ did. The ultimate victory is always and only to be found in humbling ourselves to the will of God and allowing his plans to unfold.

And we must understand that history unfolds according to God's plan and timeline. All of us merely play a very small part in it, and we do what we can. But everything will ultimately play out according to the will of God. Our duty is simply to maintain our faith and act in a Christlike manner in our sphere of influence. This may sound like an admission of defeat, but the irony is that if everyone actually did this then the world would be instantly transformed more completely than any conquering army could ever manage, and Satan would be powerless to stop it.

The Christian is essentially tasked with fighting a long, losing battle. We fight knowing that we will ultimately be defeated by death and overwhelmed by the evil of the world. But we fight still, with a joyful heart, having faith that though we ourselves may fall, the ultimate victory shall be won by Christ, and we will share in it when we are raised up on the last day.

"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” - Romans 8:18

I find one of the most comforting aspects of Christianity is the idea that God knows each one of us intimately, and created each of us for a purpose.

As men we naturally feel compelled not only to take care of those close to us, we also feel like it is our responsibility to keep apprised of the macro picture, keeping up on politics and what is behind it.

Personally, I have found that when Jesus says that taking his yoke to find rest for our souls, it applies to this conundrum in particular.

The more you pray, and the more you listen, to more he opens up to you and reveals his plans for you, and when this is the case, you can just let all the rest fall away and focus on what he wants.

Not everyone is called to figure out geo-politics, or to get involved even in local politics for the simple reason that they are suited for something else. Not everyone can care for the sick and dying, or listen to the stories of the lonely, or just sit in a hospital room, hour after hour, keeping vigil over the dying.

Could you imagine Alex Jones working in a hospice?

tl;dr you're asking the wrong crowd. take your question to the top.

“That sig BTW is a very asinine anti-family anti-parent quote. You live in a country where 40% of children grow up without a biological father, yet somehow “the greatest burden a child must bear is the unlived life of its parents”? Sorry but this is fruity Boomer nonsense.”

RE: The God pill
I talked to an abbot about this, and also other clergy. Their advice is similar: if you're in communion with God, His will for you (outside of following the general commandments) will be obvious to you in time. Specific doors will keep closing and other doors will keep opening. The path will be laid out for you and you just have to follow it, though it may take several years until that path is clear.

RE: The God pill
In the Lord's prayer, said thrice daily by the early Christians, we pray "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." We're citizens of heaven, and it's something we've got to spread.

If American Christians, as a group, start acting like we're Christians the US would change dramatically. Simple things - choosing not to fund businesses that hate our guts, treating everyone around us as if they're Christ, donating our time and money to the Church, and speaking the truth in love. Christianity has to be something we do, rather than just something we believe. James said, "Show me your faith apart from works, and I'll show you my faith by my works."

If we continue to spend our time exactly like the nonbelievers spend theirs - content with our sports and Netflix shows and other prolefeed, we will disappear while the country gets immeasurably worse.

I had a very similar confliction. I grew tired of the fight so to speak. I felt frustrated and weighted down with heavy thoughts on the matter and that nothing I could do will change anything for the good.

As weird as it sounds I had feelings of being spiritually attacked, strange things were also happening in my life and just a hopelessness came over me I didn't want to bear anymore.

So I decided I would step off and join the world of normies. Ignorance is bliss so they say. I would still follow god, but I would stay out of any and all political/religious or social commentary and just concentrate on my own personal comfort and fulfilment.

Besides the cringe and biting your tongue moments its a relatively very easy way to live. At the same time though I felt selfish. The world is going to hell yet here I am getting mine and to hell with everyone else.

I prayed to god if what I was doing was right. I prayed for him to show me the way. I believe he showed me. Twice actually as I didn't believe the first time.

I hope you find your answer mate.

RE: The God pill
Witches and occultists are trying to cast spells on Trump:

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/...o-bind-him

Quote:The spell is crafted “to bind Donald Trump and all those who abet him," and is supposed to be performed during every waning crescent moon until Trump is removed from office.

The ritual calls for the use of an unflattering photo of Trump, a tarot card, a stub of an orange candle, a pin, and a feather. Participants then call on the "heavenly hosts, demons of the infernal realms, and spirits of the ancestors" to bind Trump "so that his malignant works may fail utterly."

Article mentions that wicca/paganism is growing And why?

Quote:Hughes said that a desire for a more direct spirituality, is driving the popularity of paganism and witchcraft.

“They’re embracing spiritual paths, spiritual ideas that allow them to be empowered in their spirituality without that middleman,” such as a priest or rabbi, said Hughes.

Does that sort of attitude seem familiar? This sounds like something that could have come directly from Mage. This same general attitude isn't just something found in occult circles. Rather, it's the default attitude for most people today whether they are a New Age type or a completely secular, humanistic rational type. The only difference with the latter is that they'll replace the occult language with phrases such as "maximum human thriving" and "human dignity and autonomy".

Michael Witcoff wrote an article on RoK once where he mentions the Devil doesn't need you to be drawing pentagrams on your wall in order for him to win. He just needs you to not worship God. This can achieved in a number of ways and can be adapted to different personality types whether it be a Tumblr wicca kiddie or some Reddit Carl Sagan quoting neckbeard. These two attitudes might seem like complete opposites and the Wiccan and autist atheist would have nothing but contempt for each other but that have one vital thing in common: pride in their own powers and their ability to acquire knowledge to raise themselves to godhood even though the forms of knowledge would be different for each type of person. Ultimately they are both forms of gnosticism - one of the oldest and most commonly reoccurring heresies.

Who are some good preachers? Ones that come to mind are John Piper, Tony Evans and Chad Ripperger. It's funny to watch John Piper, he preaches like he's in love.

That's not how we do things in Russia, comrade.

If you want to read the best poets, do you read the best modern poets -- or the great poets of the past. The choice is yours, of course, but in regard to sermons do you seek modern entertainment with some insight or true discernment that has stood the test of time?

Charles Spurgeon was an English Baptist preacher who remains highly influential among Christians of various denominations, among whom he is known as the "Prince of Preachers". His sermons are available online:

https://www.spurgeongems.org/sermons.htm


You can also read the early church fathers and, if Protestant, great preachers such as Spurgeon and Jonathan Edwards.

I do like John Piper and Fr. Chad, although I'm not familiar with Tony Evans.

For more intellectual listening, I enjoy N.T. Wright. He's a bit bluepill sometimes, but he's not a charlatan. Sort of the Henry Rollins of modern Christianity. His book about the resurrection, Surprised by Hope is the reason I'm a Christian.

I also like Hank Hanegraaff, the Bible Answer Man. His content is always excellent, and he's a square-jawed real American if there ever was one. Also, in the last two years he joined the Orthodox Church -seriously damaging his career- and got cancer. He could use some prayers.

RE: The God pill
Peter Helland dropping some serious God Pills on Women and the USA. He draws a lot from the old testament.
- Women didn't call their husband by his first name until recently
- Fathers had complete control over their daughters, and who they married. And have complete control today based on authority from God. If you don't accept a husband, you must disown your daughter.
- South pushed for "In Jesus Christ we Trust" as American motto, but it got weakend down to "In God we Trust"
- Any pushback on legitimacy of kings, is disobedience to God.

We tend to think of the inversion of my own life, or compare back tot he 50s, but he always says something along the lines of: "This might seem so strange to you, but your great grandfather would agree with me"




For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. Rom 1:22

What did they call them? Sir? That seems like a very good idea. I guess that's one more reason to go to the Philippines.

That's not how we do things in Russia, comrade.

RE: The God pill
You have a dominion of control. There are things within your control right now.

If you waste time and energy on things outside of your control, you narrow the control you actually have. You lose any ability to influence anything.

If you stick to influencing the things God gave you influence over, your scope of influence increases, and then you can touch “bigger” things.

And be careful when you talk and think about God so that you aren’t just talking about an idiotic, schizophrenic, judgmental thing in your imagination.

You’ll know your conception of God is right if God as you know Him is bigger than you. You can’t think of God. You can only behold Him.

You can’t pray to your idea of what God would look like if you wrote the universe and controlled it. You can’t pray to your thoughts.

Like talking about fixing “the mess” the world is in. Do you think Christ worries about it? Do you think God worries about it? “Well of course not because God is beyond those things.”

That’s YOUR God, right? And you believe that YOUR God could simply fix everything just by speaking it, right?

Why are you worried about playing a role in fixing this mess for God then? Because you might fail a task God gave you and then end up in Hell? I hope not.

I hope you don’t think you can be a hero as God’s only hope for fixing this mess and win this fight and then go to God and demand the credit you rightly earned for doing Him a favor.

This mess was given to you by God for your benefit, not His. You test yourself, you serve yourself. You don’t get to make the judgement call for which direction God wills it to go.

You’ll know which way he wants things to turn out when they happen. You will never be ahead of the curve. You will never get closure. Faith is a requirement.

If you worry or have anxiety about anything, you’re feeding into a Satanic mindset that will only have you frustrated with your life, frustrated with the gift God gave you.

Have the discipline to have peace and grace about things. God is not a weapon for you to wield so you feel superiority in the world or justify your ideology or condemn other people. And this is no place to create a tailor-made religion either.

God doesn’t only appear when you acknowledge or invoke him. He was here the whole time. You can follow Him or not follow him. You can emulate Christ or you can not. But you can’t live a life God doesn’t intimately know about.

He is there whether you give Him credit or not. He is why this mess of a world exists. He is why there is hope it’ll change. He is why it’s destruction would bring the human race to its rightful place. He is why truth exists.

If you’re confused and conflicted, you are doing that, not Him. His commands are absolutely clear and obvious. He works in mysterious ways but communicates plainly.

RE: The God pill
I was reading through the marriage service in the BCP today and this prayer made me smile:

1662 Book of Common Prayer Wrote:Look mercifully upon these thy servants, that both this man may love his wife, according to thy Word, as Christ did love his spouse the Church, who gave himself for it, loving and cherishing it even as his own flesh; and also that this woman may be loving and amiable, faithful and obedient to her husband; and in all quietness, sobriety, and peace, be a follower of holy and godly matrons. O Lord, bless them both, and grant them to inherit thy everlasting kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Not likely to hear something like that at a modern wedding.

Amusing how times change, technology advances.
Yet whether it is Socrates bemoaning the giving of democracy to the foolish, or otherwise basic human nature.
Thousands of years later, some things remain the same :

Proverbs 20:14 - 'The customer always complains that the price is too high, but then he goes off & boasts about the bargain he got.'

Proverbs 20:21 - 'The more easily you get your wealth, the less good it will do you.'

Proverbs 21: 9 - 'Better to live on the roof than share the house with a nagging wife.'

Documentary about Christianity:




At 36:24. Cherem or Ban(Which applied to Amalek and Canaan) was pronounced by Christians in Pompeii as a curse against the city of sin.


God answered their prayers.

Not long after City was wiped out by Volcano.

Some things never change.

I remember hearing a nagging wife takes more off your life than smoking.

For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. Rom 1:22

There’s more where that came from.
