Politics and Politicos / Politics Follows Theology

Politics Follows Theology

Flipped over to YouTube when the BB game became too miserable to keep watching.  Came across a vid by a fellow named Spencer Smith.  Good dude.  I am relaying his observation.  It's sound. If your theology is effed up — your politics will be, too. That's why most (so-called) atheists are Leftists. And pretty much all Leftists are atheists. The exceptions are unorthodox (small "o") Christians.  Their theology is all over the place.  And so is their politics.  You have Catholics (which is composed of many unorthodox, man-made doctrines and traditions) who are hard Left — Pelosi, Biden, Sandi Cortez — and you have Catholics that are solidly conservative.  The new SCOTUS justice, for instance.  The Leftists generally are Catholic in name only.  The conservatives tend toward Evangelical forms of Catholicism.  "Modernist" Christians — those who deny the central doctrines of the faith, but for some (diabolical) reason insist on calling themselves "Christians" — are pretty much exclusively Leftist. Evangelicals, of course, are in opposition to Leftist/Marxist/Darwinist/Relativist madness.  As are Fundamentalists.  The difference between the two is that Evangelicals tend to be more accommodating and tolerant of the Modernists.  Fundamentalists are in open opposition to them. Both tend to find common ground with the Republicans.  And oppose Leftist policies.  Both, obviously, are a shrinking percentage of the electorate. Notice a pattern here?...

Politics and Politicos / The Generation to Come

The Generation to Come

You can't say we weren't warned:_____________________________ No nation ever had such a Christian beginning as America.  But the American dream has become a nightmare.  The nation we once knew is receding over the horizon.  Oh, America is still a leader among nations alright.  America leads in homosexuality, militant feminism, divorce, the destruction of family values, abortion, political correctness, the occult, and new religions.  Yet what concerns me most is our children and our grandchildren.  How can we preserve a nation they can thank God for?  How can we be one nation under God?  How are we going to keep the American dream alive? The Word of God says there is a spiritual chain between the past and the future, with fathers and grandfathers as links in that chain.  If our children don't know our roots, if they don't remember what God made us to be, if they don't understand what God has done for us, if we don't teach them the history of God's work in our nation, then we as Americans are just one generation away from paganism. Friends, you must proclaim our nation's spiritual history to your children.  You may know very little of the spiritual history of America.  That's why we have bookstores.  Pay a visit to a Bible bookstore and ask for materials that will help...

Politics and Politicos / Spiritual, Natural, or Carnal?
Last post by drewactual - February 11, 2021, 09:54:55 PM
Spiritual, Natural, or Carnal?

1 Corinthians 2-3 First Corinthians 2 and 3 describe three classes of people.  There is the natural man, who "does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" (2:14).  There is the spiritual man, who "judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one" (2:15).  And there is the carnal man, who is a "babe in Christ" (3:1).  Friend, you may be a natural person, a spiritual person, or a carnal person.  But you are one of these three.  I want you to understand which of the three you are. The natural man does what comes naturally.  He was born into a natural world.  He has only the first birth.  He hasn't experienced the second birth.  He is blind to a spiritual world.  He can appreciate church things, but he can't appreciate spiritual things.  A spiritual message just rolls off his back.  And he is bound to a material world.  He has no capacity for fellowship with God.  He lives a good dog's life.  He just wants something to eat, a warm place to sleep, a little affection, and a bit of achievement. The spiritual man does what comes supernaturally.  He lives by the Spirit.  He's been born from above. ...

Quote from: Drew4UTk on February 11, 2021, 04:36:39 PMI've a friend who has a friend who is on the sex offender registry.  His neighbor called the police on him for pissing in his front yard late one night in a drunken stupor from a party their other neighbor was throwing.  She said she didn't recognize him and thought a stranger was in the neighborhood.

The police arrived and knocked on the door, asking of he saw the guy... he said "I am that guy"... they arrested him to the horror of his wife and awakened children. They charged him with indecent exposure in a residential neighborhood. 

To this day he is on that registry... nobody cares about the circumstances.... if they even believe them.  He is screwed.  When he was laid off from his job some years later, he's found it impossible to find a job... all for pissing in his own front yard. 

Nobody will care why your son or anyone else was discharged.... theyll just know it was under other than honorable conditions and......... he'll be screwed.  Just like my buddies buddy.

Yep, I've come to the same conclusion. 

Do you know how many times I've pissed in my own yard, front or back?  

That's a horrifying story.

yeah, i wrote that... i'm quite astounded by the implications it presents being non addressed.

thoughts?

I spoke a tad on this on the other board as it pertains to my enlisted son. 

I'm sure he will qualify as a 'radical' under their assumed definition.  White, Christian, conservative, and a southern boy from Tennessee, with a few firm opinions that he won't share unless provoked to do so. 

He'd probably be grateful to be ousted at this point.  He is no fan of the climate he entered into, and it is no fan of him, either.

Have you given any thoughts to what type of discharge these 'radicals' will be given?  By progressive standards no less.  I'll assume the type of discharge that stains your name and reputation for life.

'fake news' title


QuoteReporters in Washington to this day act like they've just come out of a war zone because former President Donald Trump called them "fake news." It escapes them that they might have earned the title.
Case in point, the New York Times this past weekend published a nauseating profile on Vice President Kamala Harris that was not only gross in how explicit it was in its flattery of a person in power but also in how shameless it was in describing Harris and President in Biden in ways that fly in the face of reality.
The story starts by recalling a public appearance by Biden wherein he doubled back in his remarks to emphasize that his priorities in addressing the pandemic were actually shared with Harris. The Times called it "a rare slip for the president."


More at This New York Times profile on Kamala Harris is why the media so often earn the 'fake news' title (washingtonexaminer.com) (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/this-new-york-times-profile-on-kamala-harris-is-why-the-media-so-often-earn-the-fake-news-title?fbclid=IwAR3lsC7caujR7tCEvqIBy0qp2CvGrDYgOovPqzLPKDFtLA3zbjjJevDIE6s)

I'm leaning towards stocks not denominated in US Dollars.  A weak USD means good news for Emerging Markets economies and stocks.  Went long Chile via ETF (ECH) last month.  Have a bit in Europe and some in Canada as well...
