Artificial Intelligence: Our Best Friend Or Our Worst Enemy?

Siri. Ok Google. Alexa. Amazon Echo. Amazon Dot. This type of artificial intelligence is a technology that humans have unwittingly let into our homes without first thinking about the possible long-term implications of such “technology”….ESPECIALLY the spiritual implications!

Okay, lets start with the basics, here. First of all, why does the software only respond to ONE name and one name, ONLY? I always found that to be a bit creepy. (Almost as if some demon was “summoned” into the device or something? But maybe that’s just me). And even if it COULD respond to multiple names, who or what could possibly be behind it?

I’ve noticed that several people have taken to social media to report that their “Amazon Alexa” or “Amazon Echo” was “acting strange”. (Strange, to say the least). Others, on the other hand, have said that their Echo will order things online without their permission OR “speak in demonic voices”.

Demonic voices?

Well folks, that definitely caught my attention a bit. And then I thought about it for awhile…..truly thought about it. And that’s when it hit me.

In fact, one day, I was over at someone’s house with an Amazon echo. We were talking in a room that was 2 whole rooms away and I could’ve sworn I heard the device “demonically growling” for a few short seconds. It was CREEPY!

But then again, I kind’ve just shoved it to the back of my mind at the time, telling myself I probably just “imagined it” or heard it on the TV or something. I shoved that thought to the back of my mind and thought nothing more of it. Until I encountered the stories of OTHER PEOPLE who said they heard THEIR devices doing “strange things” like that.

And that’s when I came to the ultimate spiritual conclusion: “Speaking/interacting” with VERBAL “artificial intelligence” is really no different than speaking with a DEMON!

Now, don’t get me wrong folks, for I KNOW how crazy and sensational that sounds, but it’s true. The “technology” records and recognizes your voice, voice patterns and “preferences”. And then, over time, AS it learns more and more about you, it becomes a walking encyclopedia of your “every word or move” inside your home! In fact, users have stated that their “devices” can “hear them” all the way across the room! How does that NOT strike people as “creepy?”

But yet, here’s the most weirdest thing of all. When people ask their “Alexa” if she works for NSA or the CIA here in America, she IMMEDIATELY shuts off! Wow. That’s very eerrry folks….and yet, VERY telling…….Interesting…….But then again, if they asked if she worked for Satan, would she respond any differently? 

But then it got me thinking even further. What about the talking, interactive DOLLS/STUFFED ANIMALS that kids like to play with these days? Might they also be a roosting ground for “demonic spirits” to enter INTO?

When I was a kid, they had this interactive/talking teddy bear that held a cassette tape inside his belly. And at night, if the parents didn’t want to read to their children, all the child had to do was click “play” on the cassette tape inside the teddy bear’s “belly” and the “Teddy” would then open up his mouth and move his “paws” a bit and “talk” and audibly recite to children his bedtime story book (which I guess was sort’ve a very early version of today’s “audio books”, in a sense).

And I just remember this ONE particular time I was playing with my “talking teddy bear” in the middle of the day when my mom walked in to the room. I told her I wanted to “turn Teddy off”. I tried to hit the eject button on the cassette player inside Teddy’s belly. But the tape wouldn’t eject. I kept hitting the eject button over and over again, but Teddy just kept “rambling on”. My mom then told me to look for an “off” button on his back, only it wouldn’t turn off or I couldn’t find the “off” button (one of the tw0).

My mom then suggested I try to close his mouth with my fingers and that maybe that would trigger him to turn off or the tape to stop playing. So I tried it but my finger got stuck in his mouth and I couldn’t get it out! My finger was STUCK…..COMPLETELY! That’s when his “motor” started running really fast, making these terrible grinding noises and I could smell this burning “smoking smell” coming from him, while at the same time, I noticed he had red glowing eyes and could’ve SWORN I heard him say two times, “Satan! Satan!”

My mom stood over the thing and had a total look of TERROR upon her face. And by THAT time, I was crying HYSTERICALLY since I couldn’t get my finger unstuck from Teddy’s mouth, because his eyes were “flickering red” and because of the loud, grinding noises of his “motor” and because of the awful, awful “burnt smoky” smell emanating from it! 

I remember briefly looking up at my ceiling and saying or thinking something along the lines of JESUS, HELP ME! and almost IMMEDIATELY, Teddy “growled” and let go of my finger and I immediately dropped him on my bed, with his motor “still spinning” on my bed.

My mother then started to slightly tap on Teddy’s back and stomach, trying to get his motor to stop. She FINALLY got it to stop and then turned to me and said: Sorry honey but I think we’re gonna have to throw Teddy out as there’s obviously something very wrong with him!

I was both saddened (as, up until that point, Teddy had been my favorite toy) but also RELIEVED (I had never before seen “Teddy” act in such a “hateful, terrifying manner”). Over the years, mom just chalked it up to what she called a “mechanical malfunction”. But I think, deep deep down, she knows better. 

But looking back on that (especially in light of the events of most recently, compared with other people’s testimonies about how their “Amazon echos” were “acting strange”), I can only come to ONE conclusion: VERBAL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE HAS THE PROPENSITY TO BE INHABITED BY DEMONS/DEMONIC SPIRITS!

How is it then that more people are not seeing this? But then again folks, that’s the problem these days. We’re SO blinded by Google, by Amazon, by the MEDIA, by Popular Culture that we just don’t see things for what they really are! Especially when those things are staring us right in the face!

Satan has used MANY WEAPONS against mankind in the last several years (the entertainment industry, peer pressure, social culture, lawsuits etc. against Christians, the media) to brainwash the masses into a more “liberal society”. And so NOW his greatest weapon of FURTHER brainwashing the masses has become the verbal leg of “artificial intelligence”.

Who DOESN’T want an “Amazon Echo” or “Amazon Alexa” these days, right? Even I myself was (at the VERY first) slightly “tempted” by such technology. But then again, that’s how Satan rolls. In the bible, consorting with demons is a no no. So Satan had to think up a way in which consorting with demons was both “fun”, “cool”, “popular”, “convenient”, “cheap”, “innovative” and “easy”. Enter Verbal Artificial Intelligence. And the sad thing is that most people don’t even KNOW they’re actually interacting with “demons”.

Many a skeptic would probably say: “Alexa is not a demon”. But lets do some further research into this, folks.

Here’s Elon Musk IN HIS OWN WORDS:

quote-with-artificial-intelligence-we-are-summoning-the-demon-elon-musk-85-1-0129

At a recent MIT conference, he was quoted as saying,With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon“. He further goes on to say, “Ya know, in all those stories where, there’s a guy with a pentagram [PENTAGRAM?] and the holy water, and he’s like, yeah, sure, he can control the demon”, then smugly replied, “It didn’t work out”.

Those comments are both very chilling and telling at the same time. But what he forgot to mention is that verbal artificial intelligence (as a whole) is very likely summoning OF the demon. Folks, do you REALLY think all the people behind these “technologies” are “Christian” at all? I haven’t come across ONE. (Not to say that they’re not possibly out there somewhere, in the robotics world, I just have yet to come across one that’s truly “Christian”). That should tell you something, folks!

But interesting enough, he further went on to say that he sees (or knows?) that artificial intelligence is even MORE dangerous than nuclear weapons! (Wow! That statement just blew me away, with its wide-spreading implications!) Because it’s almost like he’s inferring that the type of society in the movie “I-robot” will soon become our actual, living reality!

Does anyone else remember the movie “I-robot” with Will Smith? And how, over time, the robots became more intelligent than the humans and tried to OVERTAKE THEM? Now, in the year 2017, this “plot scenario” doesn’t seem so far-fetched! (Scary, INDEED, folks!) Even Elon Musk HIMSELF seems concerned about that, as does Steven Hawking! 

In fact, just came across THIS news article the other day: It should send proverbial chills down one’s spine! “Self-thinking robot escapes lab….TWICE”: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/intelligent-robot-remembers-learns-could-8248559

Another thing that really gets me about the “Alexa” app is how the whole entire family often gets involved, even down to the very tiny toddlers! And, if Elon Musk himself is “hinting” to us all that artificial intelligence is “summoning of the demon” (in general?), should we as Christians be concerned at all? The answer is a resounding YES!

Folks, we’re living in the Last Days! We REALLY, truly got to think about what we’re allowing into our hearts & into our homes! Many Christian people (as well as otherwise) have always denounced having Ouija boards in the home. But probably not alot of people are thinking about the long-term spiritual implications of having an “Alexa”, “Siri”, etc. in their homes, am I right?

And what’s REALLY ironic here is that if you were to try to REMOVE an “Alexa” from someone’s home, they’d cry and freak out (not so much because of the forceful removal) but because their Alexa “is their baby”. They’re SO attached to it, that they’re not willing to part with it (even after being shown the biblical truth about it). For a Christian, the answer’s pretty simple, unplug it or remove it. But for the non-Christian/non-practicing Christian, it’s not so simple, is it?

Folks, I know this is gonna sound a bit crazy so just bare with me, here. But “Alexa” was honestly designed by Satan and his demons (BEHIND the scenes – with many an Amazon engineer being unawares, even) for HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE! Don’t believe me? Those Christians out there that own an “Alexa”?…….Unplug it. (Note: See how HARD it is? It sounds like such a simple thing, doesn’t it? UNPLUG IT. But yet, it’s NOT! There’s this over-riding urge to NOT unplug it. And if you DO unplug it, you’re tempted to not throw it out and keep (ESPECIALLY if it was given to you as a “gift”, am I right, folks? And THAT, my friend, is where the HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE’S coming in!)

The bible says that Satan’s angry and knows his time is short. And as time goes on, his time on this Earth gets shorter & shorter & shorter. Thus, he’s CONSTANTLY gotta crank out more and more and more ways to ENSLAVE, ENSNARE & DECEIVE THE MASSES!

Gay marriage was ONE way in which he did it. Gay adoption and Abortion another way. And simultaneously? Amazon Alexa AND Transgender rights are just ANOTHER way. There’s SSOO MMAANNYYY doorways leading to Satan in this world (here in the year 2017), that it’s honestly MIND-BOGGLING!

But yet, there is only ONE true, spiritual doorway to Eternal Salvation AND Eternal Life and THAT is through the Lord Jesus Christ! See folks? Notice the difference, there?

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: FOR WIDE IS THE GATE, AND BROAD IS THE WAY, THAT LEADETH TO DESTRUCTION, AND MANY THERE BE WHICH GO IN THEREAT: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it– [Matthew 7:13-14

Translation? VERY FEW people make it to what most people would consider “heaven” (The bible calls it New Jerusalem), someday. VERY FEW. Let that sink it for a bit. Think about it. Matthew 7:13-14 implies that only a SMALL NUMBER will be saved in his great, heavenly name! The rest will ETERNALLY PERISH in THE LAKE OF FIRE, in which Jesus Christ says in Matthew 8:12 “But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth“. Which means that MILLIONS upon MILLIONS will find themselves eternally CAST INTO the LAKE OF FIRE (INCLUDING “Wayward Christians!) 

So, to put this in perspective, there’s about 7.5 BILLION people on the Earth right now. The U.S. population (around January 2017) clocked in around 324,310,000-ish. Out of both of those population numbers, about 75% of people in America identify as “Christian”, compared with about 36% Christians worldwide and about 34% Catholics worldwide.

Now, if you were to FURTHER break down that 75% that identify as Christian, a 2016 poll reveals that 55% of Christians now actually SUPPORT “gay marriage”, while only 37% oppose it. And then you can break it EVEN FURTHER down. OF that 37% that opposes “gay marriage”, how many of them live by BIBLICAL TRUTH?

MATTHEW 7, 21 TO 23, KJV

Translation? Just because you CALL yourself a “Christian” does NOT mean that you are TRULY Christian and/or are automatically “saved” in Jesus Christ!

MATTHEW 15, KJV

Translation? Matthew 15’s talking about the people that proclaim Jesus Christ with their LIPS and during “church services” but do NOT honor OR obey him by the way they live their lives (on a daily or weekly basis!) 

For example: A person is a church-going person but yet, they hold a severe grudge towards a coworker or a family member. They are NOT truly living in Christ! They proclaim Christ with their LIPS but their LIVES and their ACTIONS are FAR from HIM! Sound familiar?

We’ve ALL been guilty of something similar in our lives at one point in time or another. But when it becomes a NON-REPENTING pattern, as in, we start to feel (over time) JUSTIFIED in our sins, that’s what Jesus is talking about in Matthew 15:8 when he states, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me“.

BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR FROM ME are the key words, here. When it comes to things like “verbal artificial intelligence”, what does it mean to have a heart that’s FAR from Christ? Answer: To have one’s heart MORE “given over” to “Alexa/Alexa app” than to Christ! To love “technology” more than Christ! To love “Alexa”/using Alexa more than Christ! To love “modern day convenience” more than Christ! 

So to those Christians out there who own an “Alexa”, I ask this of YOU today: Where is YOUR heart? Because remember that a simple, innocent “fascination” with “Alexa’s technology” can turn into a full-on ADORATION AND OBSESSION/WORSHIP OF “ALEXA!” In fact, “Alexa” serves as a DEMONIC IDOL to MANY! 

But question: what are we, as Christian individuals (as a whole) doing in the FIRST PLACE, talking to “Alexa” when we should INSTEAD be talking with CHRIST, in repentance and in prayer? 

And while I do NOT condemn Amazon as a whole (I myself shop there for a GREAT many things and absolutely love online shopping through them), I would have people to think twice before ordering an Amazon “Echo”. Is it WORTH losing your eternal salvation over, folks? Think about that long and hard before you buy one! 

I pray that all who read this will see the SPIRITUAL DANGERS of the “Alexa”/”Alexa app”, as well as all verbal artificial intelligence systems, etc., AND that they will re-examine their spiritual walk with Christ and to self-examine rather or not Christ is TRULY the centerpiece of their lives or not. And remember: That goes just as for me as for anyone else, here! 

 

 

 

What Satan Doesn’t Want You Knowing About Abortion, LGBT, Etc.

America was founded upon the notions called “life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness”. Satan’s fall was founded upon the notions of pride, greed, envy, anger & deceit. In the year 2017, pretty much all of these concepts were put into the melting pot called “Modern-Day Christianity”. And many people are none the wiser. Why? Answer: Because Satan successfully mixes truth WITH lies. 

Let us look at a few examples, here:

  1. The “Sunday Sabbath”/”Jesus Rose On Sunday”
  2. Abortion/Women’s Rights
  3. LGBT/Human Rights
  4. Transgenderism/Human Rights

Okay, lets now take a deeper look at #1, The “Sunday Sabbath”. Back in ancient times, the Roman Emperor Constantine, along with the help of “Catholic bishops”, proclaimed Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire. 

“What’s so wrong with THAT?” someone may protest. “That sounds nice…..that sounds like Constantine was trying to PROTECT Christians from persecution”.

But lets unpack this a bit….there were many, many “Pagans” living in the Roman Empire at that time. And the Roman Catholic Church (and Constantine) wanted to control as many of the Roman “populace” as possible. So how do that? Answer: Through religion. 

But the Pagans didn’t LIKE many of the BIBLICAL CHRISTIAN PRACTICES……so Constantine had to “appeal” to the Pagans. And the ONLY way he could do that was by PAGANIZING CHRISTIANITY, and that’s exactly what he did (with the help of the Catholic bishops, ofcourse). 

So essentially, what Constantine did was spread a FALSE, PAGANIZED *FORM* of Christianity that had no true, biblical merits. Why? Because he (along with the help of the Catholic bishops) CHANGED THE SABBATH, from the 7th-day biblically-mandated Saturday to Sun-day, venerable worship day of THE SUN!

(And interestingly enough, if you look around the Catholic Church today in the Vatican, you will see ALL SORTS of remnants of “sun worship” – in fact, the “halos” you see around “Catholic saints” are supposed to represent SUN HALOS/SUNS!) 

That was the start of it. But he didn’t stop THERE. No……He took it even a step FURTHER. He OUTLAWED fasting, Biblical Feasts, and ABSTAINING from work on Saturday, the TRUE SABBATH. He OUTLAWED biblical feasts by calling them “Jewish feasts”. And then, sometime later on, the false/Paganized holidays of “Christmas” and “Easter” were celebrated, which actually came from ANCIENT PAGAN SEX FESTIVALS (Saturnalia of Christmas, and Feast of Ishtar, fertility “goddess” of Easter).

Because do you REALLY think Satan would’ve let the Roman Catholic Church (key word being ROMAN) stand if it were REALLY, TRULY following the bible? Think about it, folks! The ONLY reason Satan’s left the Roman Catholic Church alone and let it PROSPER beyond anything imaginable that this Earth’s ever seen is because it, the Roman Catholic Church, is NOT following the bible (atleast, they’re not following the Jesus Christ of the BIBLE, anyways……..but another “Jesus“, altogether……..)

And over time, the Roman Catholic Church has gained such WIDE, global influence to the point that even many NON-BELIEVERS, sadly, consider The Catholic Church/Pope/Vatican to be THE PREMIER AUTHORITY on Christianity! “Well, the Catholic Church has made alot of contributions to history, such as the first printing of the bible in the English language, etc.”

See how Satan works, folks? See how he mixes truth with lies? He’ll allow Christians to go to church every week because they (as a whole) are going to church on the WRONG DAY/WRONG SABBATH (Sun-day, venerable worship day of THE SUN!) Just like he’ll allow Christians to be Christians since they celebrate in the FALSE/PAGANIZED HOLIDAYS OF CHRISTMAS & EASTER!

(Plus, have you ever noticed how these two holidays actually MOCK Jesus Christ by equating him with “Santa Claus” and the “Easter bunny? Tell me what those things have to do with Christ! Anything? Didn’t think so!!!!!)

We know from the bible that God worked for SIX DAYS, then rested on, CONSECRATED and SANCTIFIED the 7th day of the week, SATURDAY, as HIS HOLY 7TH DAY SABBATH. So for MORTAL MAN to come along and CHANGE IT? It’s like saying that God made a mistake when he made the 7th Day Sabbath! THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS!

And when people starting waking up to that fact, Satan started a “Resurrection Sunday” Movement. Have you ever noticed that, folks? Pastors preaching that “Jesus rose on Sunday morning”. But if you read the bible between the lines, it’s clearly apparent that Jesus rose at the END of Saturday evening and was ALREADY RISEN by EARLY Sunday morning, he didn’t rise DURING Sunday morning. So the “Resurrection Sunday” thing is CLEARLY A LIE!

Now lets go to example #2, Abortion/Women’s Rights. It really all started in the 60’s, during the “Free Love/Hippy Movement’. That’s what really got all this “dire feminism” thing started. And WHO do you think is behind the Hippy Movement? Any guesses, folks? It sure as heck wasn’t Jesus Christ of the bible that started it! (And P.S.: did you know that the Peace Sign is actually supposed to be a MOCKING of Christ?) 

“We don’t have to listen to authority, we don’t have to answer to anybody, we have free will, we can do whatever the heck we want”. My, my, my, one would rather think that it was a “fallen angel rally”, not any type of “human rally”, am I right? Don’t those sentiments echo almost exactly what the fallen angels likely said to themselves/amongst themselves when they thought they no longer had to follow God as the Head Authority? Think about it, folks!

And out of “hippy-ism” sprang FEMINISM. Basically, this “Movement” ATTACKED Jesus Christ, ATTACKED THE BIBLE, ATTACKED the Traditional Family, ATTACKED traditional gender role models and “worshiped the woman”. At first, women were fighting for the right to ENTER into the workforce. And then, they wanted the right to NOT have to have a baby. That’s where the “Abortion fight” came in.

“I’m not ready for a baby yet, or right now”. Whatever happened to PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY? Does THAT not matter, anymore? Whenever a woman protests: “my body, my choice”, she instead is essentially saying: “I want the right to have unprotected sex with no biological consequences”. 

True, some women are raped and that’s a horrible, horrible thing. But the baby itself didn’t rape them. Why is their life more important than the baby’s life? Can they REALLY imagine the baby within their wombs saying: “Please kill me mommy, I don’t WANT to live?” 

Oddly enough, long-time research shows that women that kept and raised their babies born out of rape were much, much better off psychologically and emotionally, rather than those raped women who chose to abort. Abortion is something that stays with you for YEARS afterwards (in your mind, heart, body and spirit) and there’s no escaping it! Not to mention that many raped women say that keeping & raising their babies actually HEALED THEM, psychologically! Who ever would’ve thought?

But the truth is, abortion does NOT make a pregnant woman unpregnant but rather, the mother of a dead baby. And I don’t exactly see women dancing in the streets and being all high and emotionally pumped up and JOYFULLY HAPPY after having an abortion. So I can only guess that abortion is NOT so liberating to women, as the “Feminist Movement” claims. 

But Satan is like that high-payed lawyer that tries to LURE women into the sin of murder: some women here that small still voice that says: “Hey, YOU – the woman – should have rights, TOO! You shouldn’t HAVE to have a kid if you’re not ready to!” But tell me. If people were in the streets protesting: “I should have the right to murder”, other people would go BALLISTIC and have those people arrested for “incitement”, etc. Yet sadly, in today’s world, when women march in protest for the right to MURDER THEIR BABIES, the world even doesn’t blink an eye & turns the other way. 

And during an abortion, the baby’s heart stops and they are pulled from the womb, LIMB BY LIMB, with forceps! What if someone were to pull today’s modern women or men apart, LIMB BY LIMB and then try to say it was their “right” to do so? What a sick, murderous, degenerate nation we live in today, folks! A woman’s right to sin is more important than the life of her baby! 

Even women that are MARRIED are no exception. Some of them want their abortions, TOO! And for WHAT? Their lives are more important than their baby’s life BECAUSE….?? The point I’m trying to make here is that MURDER should NEVER, EVER be a “right” in this country – for ANY REASON – and yet, sadly, it is (in the case of Abortion and Euthania!) 

Abortion is NOT about “Women’s Rights”, it’s about TWO things and TWO things, ONLY: killing and $$$$$$$ profits! 

The bond that a mother has with her unborn child is one of THE MOST precious bonds in existence! So for any one person, name or organization to come along and try to DESTROY that bond and to do so for $$$$ profit?!!!!! Those are the TRUE PEOPLE who are “Anti-Woman”, and “Anti-Woman’s Rights”.

Planned Parenthood even “complains” about “Birthright Centers”, places that help women RAISE their babies and find necessary resources for doing so! It’s not enough that they’re ALREADY killing babies for $$$ profit! It would rather seem that Planned Parenthood doesn’t want ANY babies born, PERIOD! They apparently HATE life! That’s because Jesus Christ IS life! And he’s the Maker & Giver of it! We were all made in God’s holy image; male and female!

Now lets move on to #’s 3 and 4, LGBT/Transgenderism/Human Rights. It’s really no different than #2, Abortion/Women’s Rights. Human rights. Sounds good on the surface, doesn’t it? But what is it REALLY ABOUT, underneath all the “media propaganda” layers? Lets have a look.

The whole point of the LGBT Pride Parades and/or Transgenderism Movement (correct me if I’m wrong) is to convince the outside world that what they’re doing is “normal”. Because hey, if it’s “normal”, then it should (theoretically) be a “human right”, correct?

Only, the thing is, it’s NOT “normal” (not according to the bible AND not according to many psychologists). In fact, back in the 70’s, the Diagnostic Manual described “homosexuality/transgenderism” as “abnormal/mental illness”. And what’s interesting to note here is that the psychologists behind the manual weren’t even particularly religious, from what I note. And so nobody can make the argument that these psychologists were “religious” per say or that they were “just acting with the times”. They saw gender as “truly binary”, set in stone and anything outside of that was to them, “biologically abnormal”.

But then, “homosexual activists” put pressure on the APA to REMOVE that listing from the Diagnostic Manual. They wanted it to be known that it was a “choice”, that they were simply “choosing” to be that way, from what I read. But NOW – in the year 2017 – they’ve changed their tune. NOW they want people to think they were “born that way” and “can’t help it”. And ironically, I’ve most recently read about a survey done, that when homosexual people were asked if they’d be willing to take a pill if it “undid their gayness”, the overwhelming majority said no. Interesting.

A prominent gay activist HIMSELF most recently that: “there IS no such thing as a gay gene” https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/foremost-uk-gay-activist-admits-there-is-no-gay-gene

Not to mention a few academic/scientific studies confirm the same:

https://www.onenewsnow.com/science-tech/2016/08/23/gay-gene-no-scientific-evidence-for-it

https://concernedwomen.org/images/content/bornorbred.pdf

http://www.cnsnews.com/blog/michael-w-chapman/johns-hopkins-psychiatrist-there-no-gay-gene

So….WHY do homosexuals and transgenders want people to think that they’re behavior is “normal?” Well, the first thing is that they’re in denial. They DON’T see what they’re doing as “Sin” at all (with many not even believing in the concept of “sin” to begin with, for that matter). While yet others likely think that, maybe, just maybe, if they can get MAN/MANKIND to approve it, then maybe that means that they could also get Jesus Christ to approve it. Because, using secular reasoning, “if too many human beings approve it, then God can’t be against it”.

But the thing to note here is that even if 99% of people on Earth APPROVED of the “sin” of homosexuality/transgenderism, it would STILL be a sin in Jesus’s eyes! And if it came down to only ONE person on the planet (and their close family, perhaps) being saved in the End, then only one person (+ any possible close family members, by proxy) would be saved! (i.e. Let us not forget Noah & his family during the time of God’s Wrath and the Great Flood Upon the Earth!)

But lets unpack this a bit. If/when a gay/trans person says they were “born that way”, they’re essentially calling God/Jesus Christ A LIAR! Not to mention that they’re ALSO saying in a sense that they HATE the way God/Jesus Christ made them! So how is that NOT sin, folks? Think about it!

ALL the LGBT fight is about (essentially) is THE RIGHT TO SIN WITHOUT EARTHLY CONSEQUENCES! That’s all it REALLY boils down to, after one has “unpacked” and “unpeeled” all the layers of what I call the “Onion of Unrighteousness”.

So the bad news is that no, they were NOT born that way and science (AND the bible) proves it! But the GOOD NEWS is that, BECAUSE they were NOT born that way, Jesus Christ can STILL change them and turn them INTO the person Jesus had ORIGINALLY intended them to be!

Jesus Christ (the true, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ of the bible) can TAKE AWAY their “transgendered feelings” and their “homosexual attractions”. He can BIND the homosexual/transgender demons that plague a person. He can HEAL them and SET THEM FREE from the homosexual/transgender demons, and YES, they are demons, folks; demonic spirits who (much like Satan) lay in wait for whatever soul they can “capture” and “deceive”. 

Sadly, many LGBT folks are “easy pickins” for such “demons” since they’re “broken people” to begin with! Satan constantly searches out “broken people” since they’re much easier “spiritual captures” as I call them. But a person that’s SPIRITUALLY DELIVERED BY Jesus Christ from such demons is no longer a “spiritual capture” but becomes a spiritual VICTOR!

ALL humans have the fundamental right to be “respected”. For example, ALL humans have the right to go into a grocery store and buy their groceries in peace without store managers saying: “Oh, I’m sorry, only blonde-haired people can enter into the store today”. Every human has a right to be respected for biological, physical traits they can NOT help. 

But when people start demanding rights for things that they technically CAN help and that are UNBIBLICAL and UNREASONABLE in scope, (“I should have the right to go out in public dressed as something I’m physically not”, “I should have the right to murder my unborn baby for convenience”, “I should have the right to use the womens’ bathroom, even though I’m not a true/physical woman”), Houston, we’ve got a problem!

Same-sex activity/transgenderism is actually A BEHAVIOR, not an “inherent trait!” Whereas, heterosexuality is an inherent trait. John-Hopkins research has previously pointed out that homosexuality/transgenderism is NURTURE (social environment) rather than NATURE (biology). There is NO gay gene and folks, they won’t EVER find one, because it simply DOES NOT EXIST!

And the day when the “Leftist Extreme” CLAIM they “have” found one? Trust me, that’ll be the day that they’ll have to resort to “faking” the scientific find of finding one, just like they FAKED the “find” of the “Missing Link” – Ida – a mere skull of a LEMUR, HA! https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/03/100302131719.htm

So what’s the moral of the story here, folks? Don’t believe ANYTHING the Secular Media tells ya. Heck, even those SO-CALLED pictures of the planet Mars and this or that find on Mars, with all the pictures being black and white and really, really “hazy?” I almost laugh every single time and say to myself: FAKE, FAKE, FAKEZOID! To me, the ONLY thing that’s true is the gospel of our Lord & Saviour, Jesus Christ Almighty! 

“God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged”

– Romans 3:4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ashamed of the Old Testament? If so, You’re Denying Him!

Many of today’s Christians in the Middle East and Asian countries ARE in “hiding/underground” due to the “hostile nature of living in a “non-democratic society” (though Egypt & Iraq could be possibly be considered “partially democratic”?). 

But here in America & around the world (as far as Western/Democratic/European nations go), it seems as though “Christians” have made some sort of “Mass Exodus” from society. It would seem that they are “in hiding”. They (as a whole) are trying to hide from having any outside identifiable mark of being a “BIBLICAL Christian” while also trying to hide their “hearts” from Jesus, as well! 

Back around the 90’s to early 00’s, homosexuals were “hiding in the closet”, sort’ve speak, while Christians were hanging about in the open, public square, unafraid of Jesus and/or their religious affiliations. In fact, it was even considered a “good time” to be a Christian, then…..The Left Behind Series by Jerry B. Jenkins & Tim LaHaye was really taking off and getting people to consider/question their “Eternity”, while no “Christian businesses” were getting sued for this or that. 

But here in the year 2017, things have changed. NOW – due to the anti-Christian rhetoric swirling about in today’s world from the radical left – many Christians are now currently “living in fear” and “hiding in the proverbial closet”. This is tragic.

Luke 9:26 in the New Testament states: For whosoever shall be ashamed of me [Jesus Christ] and of my words [the bible], of him shall the Son of man [Jesus Christ] be ashamed, when he [Jesus Christ] shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels”

Translation? If YOU, as a “Christian”, are ashamed of Jesus Christ and/or his words – ANY of his words (Old OR New Testament) – Jesus Christ will be ashamed of YOU during the Great White Throne Judgement/Judgement Day IN FRONT OF THE PRESENCE OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER AND HIS HOLY ANGELS!

Now think about it for a minute. Think about what that truly means. Let it sink in for a bit………

“If I, a Christian, am ashamed of Jesus Christ and/or ANY part of his gospel (Old OR New Testament), then Jesus Christ will be ETERNALLY ASHAMED of ME, on Judgement Day, in the presence of the Heavenly Father & His Holy Angels!” 

Matthew 10:33 echoes this sentiment: “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven”

Conclusion? To have Jesus Christ condemn an unfortunate soul to “the lake of fire” for denying him – on Judgement Day – is ONE thing. But for him to do it IN FRONT OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER & HOLY ANGELS? It’s more like a PUBLIC SENTENCING/ EXECUTION, FOLKS!

In the New Testament, we read the case of the apostle Peter denying Jesus 3 times. But afterwards, Peter repented and went about preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

So does that mean if you deny Jesus ONCE before someone, that that means you’re automatically going to the lake of fire after you die? No, ofcourse not, ESPECIALLY if you quickly repent and vow to never deny Him again! What it means (in that bible passage) is that a person PERPETUALLY denies Him before others (rather that person denies Him in their heart or not is besides the point), and is PERPETUALLY ASHAMED of the gospel (ANY part of the gospel, be it Old or New Testament or BOTH!) 

Some Christians, sadly, probably feel “ashamed” about the Old Testament, since in it, there’s lots of warfare and because Eve converses with a “talking serpent” in the Garden of Eden. They might even go so far as to say/think: “Adam & Ever didn’t REALLY happen……….it’s just *allegory* of sorts”.

And YES….this same type of theoretical person might proudly proclaim the name of Jesus everywhere they go and be “proud” of the New Testament, even testifying OF/ABOUT the New Testament to others……..But IF they’re “ashamed” of the Old Testament in ANY type of way, (either in the depths of their hearts/minds/souls and/or among other people), then they are, in effect, ashamed of PART of the gospel since the Lord is the same yesterday, today and everymore; He’s everlasting!

John 1:1-3 states: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was GodThe same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made”

Therefore, if a Christian is all in love with the New Testament but despises/is ashamed of the Old Testament, then essentially, in a nutshell, that Christian is LITERALLY metaphorically saying to Jesus: “I like you in the New Testament but I don’t like you at all in the Old Testament”.

Newsflash: JESUS WAS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT! In Luke 9:26 and Matthew 24:30 in the New Testament, he calls himself the Son of Man, right? Guess what?

Daniel 7:13-14 in the OLD TESTAMENT says: I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed

1 John 5:10 and Romans 1:4 in the NEW Testament, respectively, proclaim: “He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son” —-“And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead”

While Daniel 3:25 in the OLD Testament reads: “He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God

Denying the Old Testament (or being “ashamed” of it), is really no different than metaphorically saying to Jesus: “I like your white garment but I HATE your sandals!” Or “I totally dig your sandals but your white garment is something no self-respecting individual would wear”.

THE BIBLE IS NOT A CAFETERIA, FOLKS! JESUS’S WORDS ARE NOT A “CAFETERIA!” 

And just like Peter, there’s many Christians today who proclaim: “No Jesus, I’d NEVER deny you!” 

So why then do they reject the Old Testament and see it as “no longer viable or relevant?” Why do they treat Jesus’s words AS IF they’re a “cafeteria” where they can just pick and choose which words they like (Old Vs. New Testament) and which words they don’t?

There’s even Christians out there today who pick apart the Old and New Testaments THEMSELVES, such as: “Well……I like THIS part of the Old Testament but I hate THAT part of the Old Testament” or “I like THIS part of the New Testament but DESPISE THAT PART”. THE BIBLE IS NOT A SHOE STORE WHERE ONE CAN JUST “PICK OUT” WHAT SHOE FITS AND WHAT SHOE DOESN’T!

JESUS’S TRUTH DOESN’T REVOLVE AROUND *FEELINGS & EMOTIONS* AND WHAT *FEELS/SEEM RIGHT*! THE BIBLE AND JESUS’S TRUTH SIMPLY **IS** AND THERE’S NO TAMPERING WITH IT! 

THE BIBLE’S TRUTH (JESUS’S TRUTH) IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND EVERMORE. IT’S EVERLASTING!!!!

What ALOT of Christians don’t realize today is that Jesus Christ was PROPHESIED OF in the Old Testament, while ALSO simultaneously making “pre-flesh appearences” IN the Old Testament – known as “Christophanies” – (look it up on Google). So essentially, that’s WHY people are – in effect – actually DENYING JESUS *when* they deny/ignore/are ashamed of the Old Testament! 

In fact, let me take this a step further. There’s OVER 333+ Messianic Prophecies in the Old Testament, foretelling of a coming (in-the-flesh appearing) of a “Jewish Messiah” that were SUCCESSFULLY FULFILLED BY Jesus Christ in the New Testament: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/m/

Therefore, the New Testament is “Volume 2” of Jesus’s Words, a CONTINUATION of the Old Testament. So who are WE to DENY “Volume 1” of God’s Truth that FORETOLD of “Volume 2?” 

[NOTE: Rather or not you accept the Apocrypha (The “Middle Testament”) to be God’s Truth or not is between YOU and Jesus (although I myself personally DO see it as part of the Lord’s Truth). Therefore, using the same analogy as above, the Apocrypha would be theoretically known as “Post-Volume 1, Prequel to Volume 2”].

So I leave you all with THIS question: Do YOU believe the bible (the COMPLETE bible – Old + New Testament) – is the FULL written Word of God? If not, why? Because HOW you answer that question will determine your fate before Jesus on the Day of Judgement! I pray that any person who reads this WILL accept the COMPLETE written truth of Jesus!

Note: If you’d like a KJV bible + Apocrypha, I’d HIGHLY recommend the “Holy Bible: King James Version + Apocrypha” by Derek A. Shaver! It’s basically the 1611 KJV in modern spelling, with the Apocrypha situated BETWEEN the Old and New Testaments.

And if you already have a KJV bible and just want an Apocrypha by ITSELF, I’d recommend: “The New Oxford Annotated Apocrypha: New Revised Standard Version” by Michael D. Coogan and Marc Z. Brettler

annotated-apocrypha

[Please note: IF you live in a country or region where ONLY the New Testament is available or ONLY the Old Testament is available, or where practically NO bibles are available, don’t fret, Jesus knows! Although you should try to do everything in your power that you possibly can TO GET access to BOTH Testaments, Old and New, and if you can, the Apocrypha (Middle Testament). Jesus will HONOR your quest for The Truth! 😉 And remember: to die for Christ is GAIN, while to live for the Devil is SPIRITUAL FOOLISHNESS!]. 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rise of the “Selfie” & “Self-Worship”

Back in the 90’s, if you took a photographic “selfie” of any sort, it generally meant you “had no friends”. But here, in the year 2017, the concept of the “selfie” has turned into a whole other meaning, completely. In today’s society & culture, if you DON’T take a “selfie”, it socially means that you have no friends or that you’re “not cool”.

But what exactly is “the core” of a “selfie”? Answer: SELF-WORSHIP/WORSHIP OF SELF! I think alot of people are forgetting that. Today’s culture is all about me, me, me…..How will this or that make ME look? How will such n’ such benefit ME? What’s in it for ME? How does this relationship/job/friendship/etc. benefit ME?

Not to sound too brash here but today’s people are just IN LOVE WITH THEMSELVES! You go to someone’s Facebook page, for instance, and they have a bazillion photos of themselves from every which angle. And just think: They have to personally download/upload EACH and every single one. Plus some of the photos are even duplicates!

Now, don’t get me wrong here……I’m not saying that EVERY single person on Facebook is self-absorbed or that Facebook is the Devil or anything like THAT….But, over time, Facebook has evolved from its very humble beginnings to slowly becoming a more and more “self-absorbed media platform/narcissist’s dream”, as time goes on.  

And then you have Youtube. People that both “worship” Youtube (as though it’s some sort of “god”, I kid you not) and people that “utilize” Youtube to BE worshiped by others. Just think of all those videos from what I call “the million viewers club”. If they get over a million views on their video, then they’re eligible to be a Youtube partner and get payed a cut from “each” and every view of their videos (from how I understand it?) Basically, Youtube has become a “fame gone mad” type thing.

And these people that make millions of Youtube videos each year and make money off them………am I judging them? No. Not at all. But I DO kind’ve feel sorry for them in a small sense. Because when they say things like, “I’d like to think my subscribers”, or do crazy/dangerous things because their “subscribers asked them to”, etc., it’s like they’re turning to PEOPLE/SUBS for fulfillment, instead of to something much bigger and greater than them (i.e. Jesus Christ/Salvation) for fulfillment. And it just breaks my heart! They have NO IDEA of what they’re missing out on! 

But again, it’s really no different than the feeling that many famous celebrities feel when people “worship them”. Over time, they start to feel invisible and start worshiping THEMSELVES! And personally, Satan couldn’t be more the happier when that happens for it means just one more for the “eternal burn pile”, someday.

Think of Satan like the bad kid that acts up in class. He KNOWS he’s going to get in trouble with the teacher for “being bad” and be punished “real bad” afterwards but he wants to try to corrupt as many of the “good kids” in the class that he possibly can so that THEY get punished, too. His stealthy “warfare tactics” know no bounds! 

Self-worship is something that Satan was originally guilty of, up in heaven, during “The Fall”. So now, Satan wants humans to be like HIM: a self-deluded, self-worshiping creature! A creature who’s ANGRY with God/Jesus Christ, ANGRY with the bible & its commandments/decrees and ANGRY with everything that’s righteous & holy!

He’s likely full of “silent fear”. I think deep within the depths of his being, he KNOWS he can never be equal to God/Jesus Christ and he fears losing! But he likely masks that fear with DENIAL & DEFIANCE! For, he likely reasons, if he can mask his fear with denial & defiance, perhaps no-one (especially humans) will ever know how secretly “running scared” he is, underneath it all.

But going back to the concept of what I’ll call “selfie worship/self-worship” among the human race. Narcissism/Vanity & Pride are two of Satan’s top traits and now he’s trying to make as many human beings like this as possible! Why? To take them away from Almighty God/Jesus Christ/Salvation!

Because believe it or not folks, OUR suffering (physical, emotional & spiritual) pleases Satan! In fact, he’s quite HAPPY knowing that several humans will be thrown into the lake of fire at God’s Judgement, someday! He’s HAPPY knowing that several people are being snatched from Jesus Christ on a daily basis! He’s nothing short of evil/evil-minded!

Not to mention that people are SO hung up on taking “the perfect selfie” photograph these days, that several people have even DIED or gotten SERIOUSLY injured from it! This is NO laughing matter, folks! This is very, very serious!  

http://list25.com/25-people-who-died-while-trying-to-take-a-selfie/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_selfie-related_injuries_and_deaths

But the point I’m trying to make is THIS: Folks, we’re all being preconditioned on a VERY LARGE MASS SCALE to think/do the following:

  1. Worship Self/Be “Selfie-Obsessed”
  2. Worship Other Humans (i.e. Celebrities, Youtube “stars”, etc.)
  3. Accept the LGBT Agenda
  4. Accept the Trans Agenda
  5. Accept the G.S.A. Agenda
  6. Accept the New World Order SYSTEM
  7. Accept Abortion
  8. Accept “Gay Marriage/Gay Adoption/Gay Families”
  9. Accept Anti-Bible Rhetoric & Sentiments 
  10. Accept Mockery of Jesus & Christians
  11. Accept Drugs/Drug Use As “Socially Acceptable”
  12. Accept Any and ALL Liberal/Social Justice Causes
  13. ETC.

In fact, sadly, many of today’s problems have to do with “Social Justice Causes”. And while many “Social Justice Causes” might “seem” good on the surface, most of them are about as evil as can be! They MOCK Christ, they MOCK the bible, they MOCK the traditional family, they MOCK Christianity, plus they align PERFECTLY with Satan’s Will, NOT God’s Will!

For example: Abortion. “Social Justice Warriors” make it “seem” as though the “fight for abortion” is the “fight for women’s rights”. But lets peel back the layers a bit. What DO abortion procedures actually DO? Essentially, they make a pregnant woman an “unpregnant woman” (or rather, the mother of a “dead baby”). And how do they do that? They either stop the babies heart and/or RIP the baby out of the womb with forceps, LIMB BY LIMB! 

And just like selfies, abortion can even be likened to a FORM of “self-worship” (worship of oneself over one’s baby). Now tell me…..Why should women have the right to MURDER their babies? Especially considering that THEY THEMSELVES weren’t aborted in the womb and received the right to life! A baby’s heartbeat starts beating at just 21 DAYS after conception! 3 weeks, folks! 3 weeks! Plus research has shown that babies as young as 8 weeks (and probably even less) can FEEL PAIN! 

And yet, some of these “Social Justice Warriors” are trying to advocate for abortion at ANY point during pregnancy, even up until birth! THAT’S SPIRITUALLY DISGUSTING, FOLKS! What a “murderous/narcissistic spirit” we have roaming here in America, today! 

When a person decides who lives and who dies (think Euthanasia, for instance), that could be considered “playing god”. So how is abortion any different? If a woman’s right to “convenience” trumps a baby’s right to live, the woman (in a direct sense) is “playing god” (rather she realizes it or not). She’s worshiping her own body/reproductive system, rather than the one True God [Jesus Christ Almighty] who CREATED her reproductive system for marriage/children purposes! 

Selfies and vacation pics (in and of themselves) aren’t inherently evil, it’s oftentimes the intent behind posting them on social media that makes them evil. If I, for example, have a friend take a picture of me in front of a building in Germany and me and that friend/immediate family members are the only ones that see it, that’s one thing. But if I’m posting it on social media to “brag” about and “showcase” my so-called Germany vacation to the world wide web, that’d be quite another thing, altogether.

Now, if I were to somehow give glory to Jesus Christ FOR the so-called Germany vacation and showcased THAT thankfulness on social media under the picture captions or something, that would be ONE thing. But lets face it. Most people who post HUNDREDS of images on social media of, for example, their vacation to France, want other people to see “how great their life is”. Am I wrong, here? 

Which reminds me of some of the Youtube vloggers. Some of them are showcasing their entire lives on Youtube (everything from the first date to the kitchen sink and everything in between). And true, they might possibly be making money from those videos (which might be why they do it in the first place) but what many psychologists are saying these days is that these people are unfulfilled in their normal day-to-day lives. So for them, Youtube/social media is like an alternate universe where they can be something, be “someone”.

But folks, that’s what the sad thing is, really. Today’s “secular culture” (especially among young people) is UNFULFILLING. Today’s young people keep searching for that someone or something that will make them feel complete:

  1. “If I get a million subscribers on Youtube, I’ll feel complete”
  2. “If the U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of gay marriage, I’ll feel complete”
  3. “If I meet that special someone, I’ll feel complete”
  4. “If I get that raise or become famous, I’ll fell complete”
  5. “If I get that movie or TV part, I’ll feel complete”
  6. “If I get so many likes on my Facebook post/status, I’ll feel complete”
  7. “If I get married and have 1-3 kids, I’ll feel complete”
  8. ETC. 

But THEN what happens, folks? What happens when the thing happens? They’re STILL not “complete”. There’s a big gap of RESTLESSNESS in their lives and that gap can ONLY be filled/fulfilled by Jesus Christ Almighty! It sounds cliché but it’s true! 

Selfies and worship of self are not just about “vanity”, “pride” and “fitting in”. They’re about “popularity”. They’re about finding fulfillment IN people/social status, rather than in Jesus Christ. Just like Social Justices causes are about finding fulfillment in everything BUT Jesus Christ. 

The next time you or a loved one goes to take a “selfie” or do a Youtube video or post your “vacation pics” on Facebook, ask yourself the following three questions:

1). WHY am I doing this? What is my PRIME motivation?

2). AM I doing this to be “popular”, “seem cool”, or to “get attention?” 

3). Does what I’m doing bring glory to Jesus Christ at all? If not, then why am I still doing it?

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men SHALL BE LOVERS OF THEIR OWN SELVES, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are goodTraitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of GodHaving a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” – [2 Timothy 3: 1-5]

Jesus or “Breadcrumbs?”

I’ve most recently read a most PROFOUND book on “idols”. In the book, it talks about how idols are NOT JUST “statues” and “figurines”…..they can be SO MUCH MORE! 

Think back to the time of the Old Testament when there were a set of twins by the names of Jacob & Esau. Esau was the oldest of the two and back in those days (ancient, biblical times), the oldest son got most (if not all) of the father’s property when the father died, ALONG with what’s known as *the patriarchal blessing*.

It was custom back in those days that when a father died, the oldest son would “inherit” the most (if not all). This was known as his “birthright”. But RIGHT BEFORE the father died, it was custom for the father to BESTOW (that means, to give) his “personal blessing” upon the oldest son. While any consequent younger son could ALSO get some sort of “blessing”, it was always typically MUCH LESSER in degree, in comparison with what type of “patriarchal blessing” the OLDEST son would get. 

Esau was a hunter of the fields, while Jacob was more of a “homely” sheep-herder that preferred to stay at home in the camp. One day, while Esau was out hunting, Jacob cooked up some soup. And when Esau came home from his daily hunt, the SMELL of that soup must’ve been (in Esau’s nostrils, atleast) “heavenly”. He asked Jacob for some of that soup. But Jacob was clever. He said if Esau SOLD HIM HIS BIRTHRIGHT, he, Jacob, would then give him some of the soup.

Esau obliged (in other words, Esau agreed to it). And later on in the biblical narrative, we see how that plays out and how Esau is ALSO “tricked” out of his patriarchal blessing as well (or could it have been God’s wrath upon Esau for being so “careless” over his “birthright”, to begin with?) 

But the point I’m trying to make is THIS: WHEN Esau SOLD HIS BIRTHRIGHT for a “measly bowl of soup”, he, in effect, was likened unto one who SOLD HIS SOUL for a “measly portion”. That’s all idols are, really. A “measly portion”. Breadcrumbs! They SEEM enticing and thrilling at first glance. But on the inside, they are hallow shells; SPIRITUALLY EMPTY.

And the more of these “empty idols” we have, the more we “need” in order to try to sustain ourselves. We’re like birds, chasing after, picking up and eating one “breadcrumb idol” after another. They can’t talk, move, see or hear. So what ABOUT them seems SO appealing to us? The following book attempts to answer those questions for us IN DETAIL:

NO OTHER GODS BOOK

Therefore, what was Esau’s “idol” in that case? It was FOOD!

“And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?Genesis 25:32

Genesis 25:33 goes on to say that Jacob demanded that Esau SELL his “birthright” to him. SELL IT. Think about what that MEANS, folks! And the end of the passage says that Esau DID sell it. 

“And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob” – Genesis 25:33

I guess it’s really no wonder then when we read in Romans 9:13 in the NEW TESTAMENT: “As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated“.

Now…….if people reading the New Testament read that Romans 9:13 passage, WITHOUT ever even HAVING read the Old Testament, that can, at first glance, seem like a statement of “pure hatred”. But what that passage is REALLY saying (in context) is that Jesus loved the HEART of Jacob (which was set on “spiritual things”) but despised the HEART of Esau (who was stuck on “worldly/fleshly things” – like food).

Another good biblical dichotomy (in other words, comparison) is the difference between Ishmael & Isaac. God promised Abraham and Sarah a child in their old age. They waited some time and nothing happened. So they got a little “antsy” (or atleast Sarah did, anyways). Sarah decided she didn’t want to wait anymore and told Abraham to marry her slave girl, Hagar, so that Sarah might have a child THROUGH her. Abraham obeyed. Hagar had a child and his name was *Ishmael*. 

However, when Ishmael was in his early teens, Sarah DID conceive and have a child, whose name was Isaac. The book up above I read suggested that Abraham likely thought (at first, anyways) that Ishmael was the “promised heir” [because remember how, in ancient biblical times, special blessings always went to the oldest son?] but instead, it was, according to the bible, Isaac.

However, there’s also one DISTINCTION, here. Ishmael was born from a “concubine”/”slave woman” while Isaac was born of a WIFE! That makes all the difference in the world, here and is also why God’s covenant was with ISAAC, instead of Ishmael.

Now…..are there any OTHER cases in the bible where the YOUNGEST/YOUNGER son ended up getting a BIGGER “patriarchal blessing” than the OLDEST? Yes. We find that in Genesis 48:17-20…..In THIS passage, Jacob is VERY OLD in age, with all his sons (and 2 grandsons by his son Joseph) standing around him. 

Now remember, back in those days, it was typical for the oldest son to get a MUCH BIGGER blessing than any of the younger son(s). Manasseh was Joseph’s oldest son, while Ephraim was his youngest son. Joseph wanted his father Jacob to put his patriarchal blessing on his OLDEST son, Manasseh and placed his hands accordingly. But instead, Jacob did just the OPPOSITE……….He crossed his hands and blessed the YOUNGER SON, EPHRAIM, instead. 

Manasseh’s name means “causing to forget” while Ephraim’s name means “fruitful” or “causing to be fruitful”. So perhaps that has something to do with WHY the younger son was blessed over the older one. 

I’ve written ONE previous post on the subject of idols, from a slighly different angle: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/idols-in-modern-day-society/

And ya know, it’s funny. I’ve always known and REALIZED that idols don’t necessarily have to be statues or figurines. But until I saw the FULL list of what they could be (even people and “relationships”), I was never really able to put it into full scope. Therefore, that book was an EYE-OPENING book for me and I’d HIGHLY recommend it. It also comes with a BIBLE STUDY GUIDE as well. 

But in closing, I’d just like to ask: What type of idols do you have in your life? Are/were you even aware that you had them? And do you realize that idols are like “breadcrumbs”….promising spiritual nourishment but NEVER fulfilling it? And are you willing to learn to relinquish “breadcrumb idols” for the sake of a closer and COMPLETE spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ?

If you answered yes to the last question, I’d HIGHLY recommend the “No Other Gods” paperback book (easier for highlighting important passages), along with the “No Other God Bible Study Guide”. And remember: strive for Jesus, NOT “BREADCRUMBS”.

NO OTHER GODS BIBLE STUDY

 

Anger Solves NOTHING!

Anger. It’s an emotion we’ve ALL felt from time to time. The person in front of us at the checkout is taking too long. Someone cuts us off in traffic. Someone at work is micro-managing us. A friend, family member or complete stranger says something insensitive to us. We find that there was a mistake on our tax refund and/or that we’ve been overcharged on one or more of our bills. We’re driving a long distance and one of the tires suddenly has a blowout. The cat hops up on the cabinet (while we got our back turned for just THREE seconds) and helps him/herself to a piece of “sandwich” we’re in the process of making for lunch.

WHATEVER the situation, anger solves NOTHING! Anger will NOT, by any means:

  1. Make the person taking F-O-R-E-V-E-R at the checkout line in front of us suddenly speed up in a jiffy
  2. Make the person who cut us off in traffic UN-CUT us off in traffic or magically make them look over at us and mouth the words: I’m sorry
  3. Make the coworker who’s micro-managing us suddenly STOP, smile and say Sorry….I guess I AM micro-managing you, my apologies, didn’t mean to
  4. Make the friend, family member or complete stranger IMMEDIATELY apologize for their actions and ask for forgiveness
  5. Make the tax refund mistake go away or make the numbers magically change to the correct amount before our very eyes
  6. Make the tire IMMEDIATELY “re-correct” itself so we can keep on driving
  7. Make the cat UN-EAT the bite of sandwich and meow that they’re “sorry” (well….they might possibly meow that they’re sorry, but that’s besides the point………)

It’s pretty much a given that EVERY single human being on the planet is going to experience frustration and ANGER at SOME point in their existence. That’s a given. But it’s how we DEAL with that anger that matters.

Lets say you’re in a work situation. Your coworker Steve is micro-managing you to the HILT! No…..put that April file over here with the February files, that way, we can keep better track of it. So then you do and not 30 seconds later, he “barks” at you AGAIN: No….don’t put it at the BOTTOM of the pile, put it at the TOP of the pile of February documents (even if you’re sitting there questioning like, WHAT?? That makes no sense!!! The TOP of the pile???? Where the file might possibly not be found or be confused with the February or January files? What the HECK???”

And then, just to test your buttons of patience EVEN FURTHER (or so it seems), good-ole “Steve-O” comes at you YET AGAIN: “Put all your most current May and April 2017 folders in the BOTTOM DRAWERS, we NEVER put them in the TOP DRAWERS that are closest within reach, YOU KNOW THAT!

And it’s usually at THIS point in time that our fragile human minds want to scream EXPLETIVES at “Steve-O” and GIVE HIM A PIECE OF OUR MIND! (Which, ironically enough, is likely what Steve-O wants, in the first place. So why give him the satisfaction?)

But folks, we got to realize something, here. Whenever there’s something that “testing our patience to the limits“, it’s because of 2 reasons:

A). Satan and his demons are trying EVER-SO-HARD to BREAK US…….to GET us to FEEL angry, to GET us to FEEL resentful, to GET us to CUSS UP A STORM, SNAP, and/or possibly belittle others in the process!

B). Jesus is “using” the experience to TEACH us “patience”, as odd as that may sound.

Now, there’s TWO types of anger mentioned in the bible. There is what’s called RIGHTEOUS ANGER (Jesus over-turning the money changers’ tables in The Temple) and UNRIGHTEOUS ANGER (Cain’s anger over Abel, Esau’s anger towards Jacob, Saul pursuing David, Moses killing the Egyptian that was harassing a Hebrew slave, Herod’s anger with the 3 Wisemen, etc.)

Now, we can all “claim” that OUR ANGER towards the “sinful behaviors of others” is classified as “righteous anger”. But when’s the last time we honestly got “righteously angry” over the sinful behavior(s) of OURSELVES?

That’s PRECISELY the EXACT issue that Jesus is discussing in Matthew 7: 3-5 which states: “And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye

In other words, we can’t fully “call out/rebuke” the unrighteousness in OTHERS until we first “call out/rebuke” the unrighteousness in OURSELVES………Because Romans 3:23 says: “For ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God“. That means that NOBODY is perfect. NONE. None on the ENTIRE EARTH, past, future or present.

The ONLY being that is WITHOUT sin is ofcourse, JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY. While he lived on the Earth, he was BLAMELESS and WITHOUT SIN. That’s WHY he was a suitable sacrifice unto God to “take away the PENALTY of the sins of the world/mankind”. Because only one who is completely WITHOUT SIN can be a suitable enough sacrifice to TAKE AWAY THE PENALTY OF ALL SIN (in God’s eyes), if that makes any sense?

Now, lets look at the 7 above “anger-inducing cases” and see what happens when those people DON’T sinfully ACT on their anger:

  1. The person getting “irritated” at person in front of them in line sighs, takes a deep breath, patiently waits and then it’s THEIR turn. Life goes on.
  2. The person was cut off in traffic realizes that there’s a possibility that the person who cut them off did so “accidentally” and doesn’t fret about it. 
  3. The person being micro-managed at work stops, takes a deep breath and realizes that the micro-manager is either highly stressed themselves or only trying to be helpful and doesn’t fret about it.
  4. The person who an insensitive thing was said to rationally realizes that the person probably didn’t even realize what was said was insensitive and just rolls with it. Life goes on.
  5. The person who sees a mistake on their tax refund sighs, takes a deep breath and then calmly calls the IRS phone number to let them know what’s going on. They know eventually they’ll get the check for the correct amount and don’t fret about it.
  6. The person who had a tire blow-out will eventually fix it themselves or stay calm, figuring that help will soon be on the way.
  7. The person who had their kitty eat part of their sandwich LAUGHS about it, instead of gets mad about it, then makes themselves another sandwich cause hey, it’s not the end of the world, right?

Now, we’ve SEEN cases in the bible where people ACTED IMMEDIATELY on their anger 

  1. Cain killing Abel
  2. Esau plotting to kill Jacob
  3. Saul plotting to kill David
  4. Herod killing all boys, aged 2 and under
  5. Moses killing the Egyptian, who was “being brutal” towards the Israelite slave worker
  6. Moses SMASHING the clay tablets of stone with God’s law on them (upon seeing the disobedient children of Israel)
  7. Balaam beating his donkey for what HE thought was “weird behavior”
  8. Jezebel plotting to kill Elijah
  9. Haman being FURIOUS over Mordecai not bowing down to him and giving him obeisance
  10. Jonah got mad at God for NOT destroying the city of Nineveh (after his prophesying) AND for making him preach there in the first place?
  11. ETC.

Just like we can see cases where anger was likely HELD IN……..(and not acted upon):

  1. Abraham was likely secretly resentful/angry of Sarah demanding Hagar & Ishmael’s “banishment” since it was Sarah’s idea in the FIRST place for Abraham to marry Hagar and have children by her.
  2. When Jacob deceived Esau out of his birthright and out of his “patriarchal blessing”, Isaac was likely “silently angry” with both his sons (Esau, for being so “careless” about his birthright/blessing and with Jacob for having deceived Esau AND HIM).
  3. Jacob was likely VERY ANGRY (on the inside) with Laban for deceiving him into marrying Leah, instead of Rachel
  4.  Leah was likely resentful/angry towards her father for making her marry a man, Jacob, who clearly did NOT love HER, the way that Jacob loved Rachel, her younger sister), with Jacob (for loving Rachel more than her, and spending the MAJORITY of his nights with Rachel) AND with Rachel, for “being the favorite” of Jacob, etc.
  5. Jacob was likely resentful/angry (or at the VERY least, highly “annoyed”) with Leah for “buying a night with him with her son Reuben’s mandrakes”
  6. Old Testament Joseph was likely secretly angry with his brothers for selling him off as a slave, etc.
  7. Jacob (as well as Benjamin?) were likely secretly angry with all the other sons, after “initially” discovering the truth about Joseph (that he was initially “sold as a slave in Egypt”)
  8. Shem & Japheth were likely secretly angry with their brother Ham, for acting so foolishly and dishonorable with their “drunken” father, Noah
  9. New Testament Joseph likely felt HURT, BETRAYED, AND secretly angry/disappointed with his espoused, Mary, for what HE must’ve thought was her “going out on him”, BEFORE discovering that she was “immaculately pregnant with the Messiah, Jesus Christ”
  10. Mary’s own parents were likely secretly angry with her for what THEY thought was her “dishonorable behavior” before THEY knew she was “miraculously pregnant with the Messiah”
  11. ETC.

It’s funny how many Christians today sort’ve hold alot of the biblical characters up on a pedestal and act as though they never “thought” or “did” anything wrong. But folks, ALL biblical characters (save for Jesus Christ himself) were FAR FROM PERFECT. And many of them (just like many of us do, TODAY) got ANGRY and IMMEDIATELY ACTED UPON THAT ANGER!

As for all the bible characters that seemed to “hold it in”, for every single time they were able to be patient and hold their anger IN, there was likely a counter time in their lives when they did NOT hold their anger in and acted more like the “insta-charge angerers” list up above.

Now think back to the last time you got angry about something…….TRULY ANGRY. Did it solve anything? Did it make the situation better? Or did it just make things worse? How did it impact the others around you? (And how did it affect your children, spouse, coworkers and even PETS?) Did it turn out to be a worthwhile experience? Did it make you feel happy and fulfilled at all? Did you feel as though the anger was “worth it?” Did you feel as though it pleased Jesus Christ at all?

Because the truth is, anger solves NOTHING and takes away EVERYTHING! It takes away your mind, heart, sanity and spirit! And if left PERPETUALLY UNCHECKED, anger can be the catalyst for you losing your own very SOUL! Anger causes people to do MANY, MANY unrighteous and harmful things (both to themselves and to others). Anger causes hate and violence, rape and murder, ruined relationships and marriages, all sorts of sin and crime. It’s not worth it.

The next time you feel angry (about ANYTHING or ANYONE), just take a deep breath, relax, take ANOTHER deep breath and IMMEDIATELY re-asses the situation. And ask yourself, “is it worth it?”

Anger won’t repair your relationship or marriage……..won’t make things better for you at home or work……..won’t make you a better son/daughter, friend, coworker, spouse, niece/nephew, grandson/granddaughter, etc.

Anger (in and of itself) will help destroy everything you’ve ever worked for. Don’t let it win. Don’t let Satan and his demons win. Remember that WHEN the Old Testament characters unleashed their anger, unchecked, they were PUNISHED for it by God! However…..whenever they held their anger in and did NOT act on it, they were BLESSED FOR IT, BY GOD!

Now, that doesn’t mean that it’s not alright to feel angry from time to time, as anger is a normal, human emotion. It’s just what we DO with that anger that counts. Ephesians 4: 26-27 says: “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil”. So, in other words, when we let anger stew and come out full strength, the bible says we are “giving place to the devil”, meaning, we’re giving him leeway in our lives!  

I want to share my own personal experience here with anger and what all it’s done (or hasn’t done) for me. I’m usually a patient person and it takes alot to get me angry. But when my patience is tested to the hilt, I don’t tend to get just a “little” angry……Without prayer and intercession by the Lord Jesus, I tend (as a whole) to get REALLY ANGRY! And all the times I got REALLY ANGRY in my life, it did absolutely NOTHING for me. In fact, it has DESTROYED close relationships I’ve had in my life! It has taken so much FROM ME and has done absolutely nothing FOR me!

Anger robs the soul of LIFE! It really does. You can even spend your whole entire LIFE being mad at someone (or at God, even). Only to later find that it SOLVES NO PURPOSE! People that were estranged from parents/friends/relatives, for example, and hated them for YEARS? When they DO finally make up with them and start speaking to them again, they’re oftentimes GRIEVED about all that WASTED TIME that they COULD’VE SPENT together, making amends and letting bygones be bygones.

And all the times in my life when I just let my anger go, did NOT act on it, but prayed to the Lord Jesus Christ about it and trusted JESUS with it? Miraculous things would start to happen…….Things at work and home would start to run much smoother……..things that made me so angry before no longer seemed like such a big deal, anymore……the grass & trees looked greener, the sun looked brighter, the singing birds sounded more beautiful, people were nicer, plus I was FAR more content & happier……happier than I’ve ever been, actually…….

So if you’re angry about someTHING or someONE, I want you to ask yourself if it’s worth it. Is it worth all that LOST TIME that you COULD be spending making amends with that person/those people? It says in the bible that we must forgive others if we ourselves want to be forgiven. So what does that entail, one might ask? Well, for one, it means LETTING GO OF ANGER. I know that’s hard to do. I know it’s easier said than done. (Been there, done that, I KNOW how it feels). But if we want to move FORWARD (both, in our spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ AND with each other), then we MUST let go of our resentments/ANGER (anger towards God/Jesus, towards other people, & towards ourselves, etc.)

Even SELF-ANGER (anger at self) is DESTRUCTIVE and serves no purpose. For how can we faithfully serve God/Jesus is we’re too busy condemning ourselves to oblivion? Who CARES about what sin we did 10 years ago, 20 years ago, 2 years ago or 2 months ago? Does that REALLY hold any true bearing for what we’re doing for the Lord Jesus Christ in the HERE and the NOW?

The anti-thesis of anger is PATIENCE…..humbled PATIENCE. Jesus Christ puts us in “long lines”, etc. at the bank or grocery store, etc. to teach us PATIENCE. Jesus puts us in EVERY “patience-testing situation” to teach us PATIENCE. In fact, did you know that Satan the Devil gets ANGRY whenever WE are PATIENT? It’s true. And whenever WE get ANGRY and ACT ON IT, Satan’s happy as a lark! That’s WHY we should never let Satan win in the “war on anger”.

If you or someone you know is currently struggling with the perpetual problem of ANGER, I would HIGHLY encourage you to pray to the Lord Jesus Christ about it, HUMBLE YOURSELVES before Jesus, give your whole LIFE to him, and then, just sit back and watch all the miraculous things he’ll do in your life, when you CONQUER YOUR UNRIGHTEOUS ANGER IN JESUS’S NAME! 😉

And yes, though I DO still struggle with anger in my life from time to time (especially in the work setting), I’m getting much, much better these days at conquering it in Jesus’s name! And I pray that all of you will continue to do the same! 😉

Drug use in TV shows: The Latest Preconditioning Of The Masses

George Orwell pic

Ever since 9/11, Americans have been systematically pre-conditioned by the elite to believe whatever the media and gov’t has LED them to believe. And in the past 5 years or so, it’s ONLY gotten worse, folks!

Not only are we now being INVADED by the “transgender mafia” in today’s mass media, who, for example, believe that biological gender is no longer “scientific fact”. It would rather seem that in TODAY’S godless society, gender is now determined by FEELINGS and NOT by actual biological reality!

But along with the pro-homosexual, pro-transgender, pro-socialism, pro-abortion and pro-immigration etc. “Movements”, there is also YET ANOTHER “Movement” that is SILENTLY HAPPENING….the secret movement to GLAMORIZE/LEGITIMIZE drug use! And the elite come at us SO subtly with it, that we don’t even really see it happening!

Several of today’s TV and Movie Producers want to try to trick US (the American people) into thinking that THEIR movies and TV shows reflect the “natural reality” that is today’s world and also that they’re just producing movies and TV shows that viewers are DEMANDING. But that’s not true, folks! Because the Luciferian elite has “an agenda”: and their “agenda” is to DESENSITIZE US to things that DISPLEASE GOD (such as abortion, murder, drug use, transgenderism, violence, etc.)

In fact, when I most recently did a Google search to try to find out how many of today’s TV shows feature drug use, I was ASTOUNDED!

But again…….it didn’t really surprise me much since there have been several “mini-drug epidemics” in various pockets across the U.S.! So it begs of question…….Were these drug-addicted TV characters produced as a result OF the “mini-drug epidemics” across various pockets of the U.S. or were the “mini-drug epidemics” actually caused BY some of these TV shows that try to “glamorize/legitimize” drug use and/or the drug-dealing/using “lifestyle?”

People keep saying that it’s ONLY “young people” that are “impressionable”. But guess what, folks? People IN GENERAL are “impressionable”. Because if they weren’t, society (as a whole) NEVER, EVER would’ve accepted the “concepts” of 3rd-trimester abortions, homosexual “marriage”, transgenderism, and the “idea” of letting a full-grown man into a ladies bathroom! Think about it, folks!

For a long time, the American public has been lied to! Through music, movies, court cases, newspaper/magazine articles, books and TV shows, the “godless elite” has attempted to wreck havoc on EVERY American soul!

They WANT us to believe that homosexuality/transgenderism is “good”, they WANT us to believe that abortion is “okay”, they WANT us to believe that socialism is “great” and that religion is “evil”, just like they now WANT us to believe that drugs are “good”, “glamorous” and “OK”…….

Look no further than the following TV shows and/or movie characters to see exactly what I mean:

1). Wendy Case in Sons of Anarchy – addicted to METH & HEROIN

2). Bubbles in The Wire – addicted to HEROIN

3). Renton in Trainspotting – addicted to HEROIN

4). Tyrone Biggums in Chapelle’s Show – addicted to CRACK

5). Christoper Molisanti in Sopranos – addicted to HEROIN, etc.

6). Sherlock in Sherlock Holmes – addicted to COCAINE & MORPHINE

7). Dr. House on House – addicted to VICODIN

8). Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad – addicted to METH & HEROIN, etc.

9). ENTIRE CAST of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – addicted to INHALANTS, CRACK, ECSTASY, COCAINE, etc.

10). George Jung in Blow – addicted to HEROIN & COCAINE, etc.

11). Jack Bauer in 24 – addicted to HEROIN

12). Philip Pearson in Travelers – addicted to HEROIN

Plus many, many more! And as you can see, 8 of the 12 (over 60%) have to do with HEROIN ADDICTION while 3 of the 12 (25%) have to do with COCAINE ADDICTION.

Drugs were once frowned upon in society. But now…….there seems to be this slow “societal shift”……Now, the Luciferian elite are trying to make drugs seem “cool”, “fun” and “in style”.

Many people today don’t have “time” to read their bibles or spend time with the Lord in prayer. But hey…..they have time for their “movies” and their “TV shows”, am I right? And THAT folks, is what the Luciferian elite is banking on.

Research even shows what happens to our brains when we see visual and verbal images of something over and over and over again in the mass media; we become desensitized to it to the point where we don’t even hardly notice it anymore. And THAT folks, is ALSO another thing the Luciferian elite is banking on.

People’s minds are impressionable (ESPECIALLY young children’s and *UNSAVED* people’s minds). And if a person or child has a favorite TV or movie character, they can quickly become *subconsciously OBSESSED* with said character……..and…….over time, began to EMPATHIZE with the character (and if the subconscious obsession creeps up deeply enough), even start to BECOME like the “character”. And if the character takes drugs……..well……it’s really NO WONDER there’s such a “drug epidemic” here in America and also in today’s global world. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/heroin-use-in-u-s-reaches-alarming-20-year-high/

http://www.foxnews.com/health/2016/12/17/drug-overdose-deaths-increased-by-33-percent-in-past-5-years.html

These movie and TV characters that are “regular and/or occasional” drug users/dealers? It’s PSYCHOLOGICAL PRE-CONDITIONING AT ITS MOST FINEST, folks! The Luciferian elite is TRYING to program people’s brains to think that pot is OK, cocaine is OK, heroin is OK (or, at the VERY least, “not that bad” and can “easily be overcome”). But then, people in real life find out just how TRULY ADDICTING the stuff is. And by then, their physical body and their whole life is “seemingly” ruined.

I hear liberals ALL THE TIME try to say that the media does NOT effect people. If that were so, then tell me WHY there’s SO MANY people on Youtube and other video-sharing sites doing PARODIES/IMPRESSIONS of MOVIES/TV SHOWS/OTHER PEOPLE. Or, just look at how many people just DROOL and OBSESS OVER and IDOLIZE famous celebrities and SCREAM IN EXCITEMENT at the mere SITE of that person/those people walking down the street/etc. Because hey, the “media/entertainment industry doesn’t effect people at all (mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally speaking), right?” Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

No, a movie or TV show (in and of itself) doesn’t DIRECTLY cause a person to use/experiment with drugs. However, to many, it serves as what I call the “CURIOSITY GATEWAY”. That’s how it all gets started. They get CURIOUS: “Does this drug or that drug REALLY give you an incredible high, like that one TV character had in that show?”, followed by “is this drug REALLY as harmful as experts SAY it is?” And sadly, some even think to themselves: Hey! I want to try this drug that this one TV character does. It looks FUN! And then it all goes from there.

People (as a whole) like to (and even tend to) emulate what they see on movies and TV. It’s a skewed reality, folks! The general American public is led to believe that WHAT they see on all these degraded/sinful TV shows/movies is NORMAL when in all actuality, it’s the OUTLIER. Trust me, not every 4th or 5th person of every single family is using drugs. But that’s what some of these “drug-using” TV shows would have people try to believe.

But again, what lies at the HEART of drug addiction (be in TV format, movies, OR in real-life)? The answer is SIN! One thing I actually LIKE about the show LOST is that it actually attempts (although somewhat vaguely) to show drug use as it REALLY is: HARMFUL & DESTRUCTIVE (both to users and to everyone around them!) None of the other TV shows I’ve seen featuring drug use had EVER done that (to my knowledge). So atleast ONE show out there attempts to tell the TRUTH about drug use; not only that it’s SIN but that it’s DAMAGING and DESTROYS PEOPLE’S LIVES!

All the others? Especially the last one I mentioned on my list up above? Seems like they’re all just justifying it and making excuses. Now…….if they were to show drug use in a TRULY BAD LIGHT and showed each character getting some sort of HELP/MOTIVATION overcoming their addictions, (which the show LOST also did, btw), then that would certainly be ONE thing. But if they’re attempting to show drug use in a GOOD LIGHT or a ‘LEGITIMATE LIGHT” (“drugs are good, drugs are fun, he/she has legitimate reason to use drugsit pays to use/deal drugs”), then they’ve done every single American (as well as global human soul) a SERIOUS DISSERVICE!

Ya know, I keep hoping that somebody out there will come up with a Christian TV series that attempts to show sin for what it REALLY is (Sin) and that shows that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to be FORGIVEN and SET FREE from “Sin”, ESPECIALLY a Christian-themed show (similar to LOST) that attempts to show drug use for what it REALLY is (SIN – sin that DESTROYS lives and DESTROYS families!) Because maybe, just maybe, if more TV shows and movies attempted to show drugs in a TRUE LIGHT, there would be FAR less glamorization of it and FAR less “curiosity attempts”.

What this American society and global world needs is a TV show that SHOWS THE TRUE FACES OF DRUG USE (people “coked out” on crack, heroin, meth). The show Drugs Inc. (while it does show people’s struggles from time to time), I think it actually does the unintended OPPOSITE (glamorize drug use to the millennials, etc.). Seeing the EMACIATED FACES/BODIES OF LONG-TERM DRUG USE would be a HIGHLY effective anti-drug campaign. But again, like I said, it’s not really a state problem, a nation problem or even a POLITICAL problem, it is a SIN PROBLEM!

Believe it or not, DEMONS are behind drug use. Just like they are ALSO behind the “idea” FOR TV shows/movies which FEATURE drug use in a “legitimate light” [Think Travelers, for instance]. Demons rob a person’s SOUL! But in fact, that is their “spiritual job” to do so; to try to take as much LIFE out of a person’s soul that they possibly can! Because the more LIFE they can suck out of a person’s soul, the better chance they have of PERMANENTLY overcoming that person’s soul. In fact, the SECULAR world doesn’t call it “overcoming one’s demons” for NOTHING. Think about it, folks! WHERE do you think that saying actually comes from!?

Many people who experience drug use oftentimes describe “demonic encounters”. WHY do you think that is, folks? Do you think it’s just MERE COINCIDENCE? THINK AGAIN!!!!!!

Drugs and Crime (especially crime RELATED to drugs) are actually a SIN PROBLEM, and not so much a SOCIETAL PROBLEM (although that too, for what it’s worth). So UNTIL America (and the world) has dealt with drug use as a SIN PROBLEM, I can’t forsee the “drug problem” going away anytime soon!

And what’s scary to me about the media/entertainment industry (as a whole) is that it’s starting to create this “Alternative Reality”. The lines between fantasy and reality are becoming BLURRED. In today’s “liberal world”, biological gender is no longer biological gender but is based on FEELINGS. That’s really scary, folks. I wonder what biology textbooks will look like in 10 years: “There IS no gender” and/or “Gender is not determined until the age of 5. Brain determines gender, NOT biological anatomy”.

But again…….the way this society is going (on a global scale), it probably won’t be too much longer now before ALL drugs become “legal” and likely even ENCOURAGED among many on the the liberal left. Think back how, 10 years ago, the word “transgender” didn’t even exist. Now it’s everywhere and a person is just a “racist bigot” if they DON’T “accept transgender ideology”.

The SAME exact approach is likely going to happen with drugs/drug use. In about 10 years time (if not much sooner), drugs will likely become legal and any person that despises drugs/doesn’t use them/has negative viewpoints towards them will be seen as “totally backwards”.

The TV shows WEEDS, Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy pretty much started a “mini-movement” within the TV industry to “glamorize drug dealing/using” and many TV shows followed. DOES ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE FIND THIS FACT DISTURBING AT ALL? EVEN JUST A LITTLE?

In fact, my heart just FEARS for the types of movies and TV shows that are coming next. HOW MANY MORE TV SHOWS AND MOVIES WILL HAVE TO FEATURE DRUG USE IN A POSITIVE LIGHT BEFORE PEOPLE START NOTICING (IF AT ALL) AND BOYCOTTING THE TV SHOWS, AS A RESULT?

The problem is that NOT only is drug use a SIN, but that MANY CHRISTIANS out there are NOT standing up AGAINST movies and TV shows such as that! Which is WHY many of those “drug-glorifying” movies and TV shows like that are ABLE to PROLIFERATE in today’s mass media!

You (dear readers of this blog) might not be part of the PROBLEM of drug use in the media, but you can certainly be part of the SOLUTION! We ALL need to band and pray together that all of these ungodly TV shows will LOSE their appeal on the masses and also that there will be a GREAT spiritual awakening of people that HUNGER AND THIRST FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS and that REALIZE that there’s a HECK of alot more to life than “Sin” (sinful practices such as drug use, etc.)

And no matter WHAT side of the “drug war” you’re on (rather you’re a soul that’s currently addicted to drugs, are adamantly anti-drug, deal drugs, advocate their use in the media, etc.), I pray that Jesus Christ will abhold you, HEAL you from within and SET YOU FREE FROM YOUR SIN(S)! For HE is the ONLY thing in this universe that satisfies! HE is the ONLY way to Salvation/Forgiveness of Sins! And HE is the ONLY being in the universe with the power of Life and Death in his hands!
