The Greatest of These is Love

In brief, before you move on to the articles below, I was a Christian many years ago. Very ardent. I remained so for a long time, probably into my early 40s (I’m 65 now). After doing a lot reading across many different genres, I left the core beliefs of Christianity. I suspect my wife’s long illness, something she is still dealing with today, had a lot to do with that, but it wasn’t the whole of it. If I had to label myself I would say I’m an agnostic.

I know the arguments about why God allows evil, but they ring hollow for me. Throughout the decades of my wife’s illness (and now my son’s) I have always known if I had the power to heal her, I would in a heartbeat, just as if I had the power to stop the abuse and murder of children I would do so in an instant. There’s no use fretting about that, if there is a God this is the world we have and it is how he operates.

My wife would say I am a Christian, despite my inability to accept or affirm some core beliefs of the faith, because my lifestyle indicates that (and yes, I know, many Christians would say I’m going straight to hell). Honestly, as I’ve told some of my friends and my wife and son, it would be easier during the times we are going through to believe as they do, to have the assurance that all this is according to plan and that all things will work together for good. I don’t have that belief any more. I almost envy those who do.

That being said, both the essays below struck a cord with me. I’m not sure what cord. I sometimes think the cord has only been struck because as the world falls apart it’s easier to rely on a being beyond myself, than on myself, my family and friends. It feels almost like an admission of weakness, not strength and fortitude. Maybe that’s not so. I don’t know.

The core belief I do hold on to from I Corinthians 13, which I still believe is probably the greatest thing ever written, is this:

But now faith, hope, and love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.[emphasis mine]

I thoroughly enjoyed both the essays below and I hope you do too.

  • On the interpretation of selective silence.

    Some things are difficult for some leading voices among the Covid-times anti-tyranny voices to say publicly. Four of those things:

    1. Vaccines and biochemical weapons are interchangeable terms for a single product class jointly manufactured and distributed by pharmaceutical companies and the US military for use by militarized health care providers on targets.
    2. Observed harms caused by use of biochemical weapons labeled as vaccines, on targets, are intentional.
    3. Intentional infliction of pain and death, on targets, using biochemical weapons labeled as vaccines, is State-sponsored. Governments have done it to their people in the past, are doing it right now, and clearly indicate their plans to continue doing it in the future.
    4. State sponsorship of the intentional injury and killing of people is coerced through central bank control of money, such that governments are under the direct daily control of central banks, and democratic rituals (such as elections and legislative activity) are performative only. Government officials who try to refuse sponsorship of intentional mass murder (i.e., by speaking or legislating in authentic, non-performative ways) are subject to overwhelming reprisals: currency destruction, economic collapse, lockouts from international financial transaction systems, fomented internal civil disorder, government overthrow and assassination.

    Satanic Technocrats

    Technocrats of Satan have demonstrated — through Covid — that they’ve long held the means to make lies about poisons-as-medicines appear true to large numbers of people. The means include computerized modeling; control of government planning and publishing offices; and control of print, radio, television and Internet publishing channels, alongside orchestrated civil wars, famines, trade and supply chain blockades, and disease outbreaks that can be made to appear spontaneous and natural, through skilled use of those same controlled information channels.

    God Has Not Abandoned Us

    God has not mismanaged or abandoned the world He created. God is still providing for mankind’s material and spiritual needs every day. In most places, most of the time, even though the technocrats of the Antichrist have been trying for centuries and are still visibly trying every day, they have not utterly “blotted out the name of God and of His Christ.”

  • Into the Desert, Into the Woods

    Those of you who have been reading me for a while will have seen how I have found it harder and harder not to write from my newfound Christian perspective. My religion has taken me and bent me out of shape; or rather, I hope, back into shape again. If the pressure keeps coming, maybe one day I’ll approach the shape I was supposed to be. Daily I can feel myself being turned, ever so slowly, towards the light.

    If We Have Faith

    If we have faith in God, after all, this must be happening for a reason. And if we don’t have faith – well, the dissolution is unstoppable now anyway. The question is how to live with it, and what we can learn from it. I wrote explicitly about this eighteen months ago, in my essay Exodus. We are all heading into the desert…

    Not All Who Wander are Lost

    Maybe it is not a time to be at home. Maybe it is a time to wander abroad, and to learn from the wandering.

    The Ground is Shifting

    The ground is shifting everywhere now. A new religion is rising – the religion of the Machine. It may be that all the old structures – cultural structures, Christian structures, all the familiar things – need to fall away in order that we can see beyond them to what is really going on; see again what truth looks like at its root, and understand how to face what is happening. There’s freedom in that prospect, if you ask me. Maybe even joy.

    The Collapse is Coming

    I take the collapse for granted. I am done writing about it. Instead, I want to follow my intuitions about what the new faith of the Machine age is going to be, and I’m going to write about a wild Christian response. I want to head back to the roots of our faith and see if I can help to water them a little. I want to find the soil they grow in. I want to grow in it too. You know I think we are living through an apocalypse – a revelation. But what is being revealed? We should pay attention to that question, I think. We should search for the diamonds in the rough. I want to write about that search. There are stories to tell about our exile’s journey. Some of them might even be beautiful.

    It’s Exciting

    Everything is in the hands of God now. But then, it always was. Exciting, isn’t it?
