Patriotism vs. God

Can you be a Christian and a Patriot?

Before you answer that question, let me remind you that you cannot be a follower of Christ, if you love ANYTHING more than God. In fact, the best definition of idolatry is the love of something, more than God.

So, are you a patriot?

Of course, your answer might change a bit if that nation is truly following God. The problem is that there isn’t any nation today that follows God, so the issue is moot. And, I’m afraid that I haven’t dealt with this question as well as I should, in my own life.

2019 – The Difficult Year

At the beginning of January, it is a tradition to try and forecast the events of the coming year. And, I’ve tried to do that, every year, with limited success. Timing is not my strength, as I have demonstrated over the past few years. Having said that, there aren’t many who have done any better. So, I’m in good company.

However, there is one thing that I can predict with a great deal of confidence:

2019 will be difficult.

My fear is that this will be a great understatement. I certainly hope that it will be smooth sailing with perfect sunsets and fields of green. But, don’t bet on it.

The Cat has Landed

Hi Everyone!

I had hoped to be up and running at full speed by now, but our move to Tainan became more than just a simple Christmas Eve move. It was one of the worst moves that I’ve done, partly because I’m a lot older than when I started down this road of living ‘overseas’.

More than 20 moves in more than 25 years. And, this from someone who HATES to move. Of course, each of those moves has been a way for God to convince me that I didn’t need as much stuff as I had. And, if I accumulated too much of that useless ‘stuff’, my back and knees would pay for it.

And, they do.

(sigh)

God Has His Reasons

When God moves in the lives of His children, the reasons may appear to be one thing, when they are completely different. You might think that you’ve crashed and burned on the shoals of capricious events. You might not see any rhyme or reason for what is happening to you, but God sees things differently. And, if you are a true follower of Christ, for long enough, you will see a lot of this.

To put it another way, nothing happens by accident. Nothing. And, I take a great deal of comfort in that, and I hope that you do too.

The Boiling Frog

Our fall from grace has happened so slowly that we must look at it in terms of decades and even centuries. What was outrageous in the ’90s, is commonplace today. And, what we did in the ’90s was only whispered about in the ’70s. Oh, and we never talked about THAT in the ’50s.

This slow creep of all things immoral has been happening so slowly that it’s hard to see it, unless some ‘half-alien’ points it out to us.

I’m that ‘half-alien’.

The problem is that there aren’t enough ‘half-aliens’ out there to make what we say remarkable enough to be believed.

A Demonic, Psychedelic Sorcery

The Book of Revelation speaks of sorcerers and sorceries. It’s something that was going to be a part of The Last Days. And, the core of that word, ‘sorcery’, in the original Greek is ‘pharma’. Drugs.

We don’t normally think of sorcery as something drug-related, but the Bible says differently. And, there is something growing in the US that is directly tied to this meaning of that word.

It’s all about psychedelic drugs, and it’s about to go mainstream. They are utterly demonic, and you should stay as far away from them as you possibly can.

Sin Destroys the Mind

Looking back over the events of the past week, one thing rings clear. Corruption and insanity go together. There’s a causal link between the two, and it is corruption that is the cause. And, we even have scientific proof to back up this assertion.

We have become insane, because we have chosen sin over righteousness.

Our founding fathers knew this, and even the worst of them – Benjamin Franklin – was clear on the need for morality and ethics for our freedom to be free. But, we lost our way and traded our freedom and sanity for pretty trinkets and shiny toys.

Taiwan is Falling

For decades, Taiwan has been losing a struggle against the corruption flooding in from the United States and Europe. Abortion has become cheap and easy. American movies, music and pornography have become ubiquitous. Anything and everything American has been idolized in one form or another. Taiwanese parents have chosen careers over children. And, those same parents sent their kids to universities in the US and Europe. Those kids came back with leftist ideas that are now bearing an ugly fruit.

We are seeing this fruit in a homosexual campaign to gain more and more acceptance in Taiwanese society. And, it’s being especially felt in tomorrow’s election.

Enter the Gray Rhino

For the past two weeks, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) has been referring to a term that few have heard before. It’s a ‘Gray Rhino’. (or Grey Rhino, for you Brits) That term refers to risks that everyone sees, but doing nothing to resolve.

Unfortunately, that’s the age that we are living in. There are ‘Gray Rhinos’ trampling the world. They are everywhere, and it’s appalling that we are doing precisely nothing to stop their destruction of our civilization. These risks are obvious, but we are too corrupt to do anything about them.

It’s an utterly maddening phenomenon.

Paving the Way for the Antichrist

I stand amazed at what we are doing to pave the way for the Antichrist. And, we are doing in so many different ways, that it boggles my mind. I was just going to talk about one of those ways today, but I find myself unable to concentrate on just one thing.

Did you know that…

…Belief in Nibiru and Planet X theories…

…Voting for the ‘lesser of two evils’…

…Corruption in our churches…

…Supporting war after war…

…Ignoring Peak Oil and the Grand Solar Minimum…

…is paving the way for the Antichrist?

YES. And, I could go on and on with more, but I won’t.
