As I look back on this week, I see a theme that runs through it – our sinfulness. We have made compromises on the truth. We have compromised our morality. And, we have chosen pastors who do the same.
And, when that happens, God sends strong delusions among us:
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
– 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12
The word for ‘damned’ is the Greek word, krithosin – or, should be judged. And, THAT is what is happening right now. We are being judged by God.

We have been given a strong delusion, and we will not be free of that delusion if we do not choose the truth – and, if we enjoy the unrighteousness of others. We will not be freed from our normalcy bias. We will continue to be lied to by the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird Mainstream Media. We will be subject to the evils of our intelligence services. We will have pastors who are silent on the truth. And, we will suffer plague after plague like Ebola.
We and our churches will be subjected to all of that, as long as we tolerate sin in our lives and sin in our churches.

The Articles That You Will Find in This WEEKEND SHOCKCAST
MONDAY – Chipping Away at the Normalcy Bias
Getting people to wake up to what is really happening is an amazing challenge. I’ve been trying to do that, in one form or another, for almost twenty years. However, even I did not truly begin to understand what was going on until God shook me awake in 2011.
So, when I see someone else stuck firmly in a normalcy bias. All that I really can do is offer a few bits of incontrovertible evidence and a prayer that God will do what He did to me – shake ‘em awake.
Unfortunately, this means that God will need to knock the other person down, which is a really hard process to go through. So, you’ll need to stick around to help pick up the pieces.
The Central Intelligence Agency – or, CIA – is one of the most evil organizations on the planet. Not everyone in the CIA is evil. In fact, at the lowest levels, there are a lot of good people working for that foul organization. But, the organization itself is without a shred of morality, and owes allegiance to the only god they know – power.
I didn’t always think like that. But, that was before I saw the dark evil at the heart of the CIA – and their operations against the American people. And, those operations are part of why it is so hard to chip away at the normalcy bias that I talked about yesterday.
WEDNESDAY – How the CIA Became Evil
As I said yesterday, I didn’t always see the CIA as evil. In fact, I usually thought of it as a pretty cool organization. But, that was before the evidence started piling up that there was something dreadfully wrong with them.
Unfortunately, part of the problem lies in the basic fact of how such organizations are created and organized. Such organizations are ALWAYS going to become evil, if they aren’t managed properly. In fact, I’m not even sure that it was ever possible to set up and manage the CIA properly.
But, worrying over what-might-have-beens ultimately doesn’t solve the problem that lies at our door.
When I start an article, I don’t always know how it will end, and yesterday was a prime example of that. I started out by talking about how the CIA became evil, and ended up talking about why everything is a mess:
We have sinned against God. So, God has turned us over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh (1 Corinthians 5:5).
We have chosen pastors that will scratch our itching ears (2 Timothy 4:3). And, our pastors have chosen the way of cowardice, instead of truth.
Well, I received an article from Sheila Zilinsky that speaks directly to that subject, and she gave me permission to share it with you.
FRIDAY – Ebola – Next Wave, Incoming
We’ve had a pause in the Ebola infection rate, and everyone has breathed a sigh of relief and gone back to what they were doing.
It’s a nice feeling, right?
Of course, it’s too bad that feelings don’t matter, because pandemics come in waves, and each successive wave gets bigger and bigger – until it burns out.
However, burn-out only happens when enough people have died, so that there aren’t any more hosts for the pandemic to infect.
Do you want to wait around for ‘burn-out’ to happen?
Right. You aren’t insane.
Unfortunately, the rest of the world isn’t so lucky.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
