The legal justification for Europeans conquering America

This is an interesting passage in a book on American history that goes into the actual thought at the time, or legal justification, for the European taking of lands away from the native Americans. It's not usually thought that there was any legal thought going on about it vis-a-vis the native inhabitants. The relations between the settlers or colonists or traders and their home country, yes; but not the conquerors vs. conquered. That just seemed to be chalked up to the ways of the world. Here it is:

What of lands already occupied, for instance by Native Americans? That question inspired the fourth spirit of English colonization, the racial and legal one. It held simply that the rights of savage or indigent peoples were forfeit. The English first applied that principle in Ireland, the colonial laboratory where they learned contempt and fear for uncivilized neighbors and asserted eminent domain over unimproved lands. John Locke justified that right in his Second Treatise of Government in 1689. He began by asserting, “In the beginning all the world was America,” by which he meant undeveloped, and ended by asserting that American Indians “exercise very little Dominion, and have but a very moderate sovereignty.” In short, the English believed the displacement of indolent people by dynamic civilizers was not only inevitable but just.

That's from Throes of Democracy by Walter A. McDougall.


The full-belly idiocy of the elites

One of the big themes of the 20th century (and going into the 21st) is how elites ignorantly take civilization for granted. Call it the full-belly idiocy of the elites.

They're living in total comfort and prosperity, fed and protected by average Americans they look down on (that is, those elites who don't think food grows in grocery stores and defense of the nation is reliant upon their kindness and understanding of other countries).

So they're bored, of course. And they carp and complain. Things just aren't as they require them to be ever. Then their growing stupidity becomes prey to the various Satanic ideologies and tactics of culture destruction out in the world.

They need the sharp side of a shovel sliced into their necks. It's hard to imagine more shallow and worthless souls. Just the fact that they self-identify as 'elite' when they're not and they've never been elite at anything. They couldn't change a flat tire if you put a gun to their head. They don't create anything, build anything, invent anything, discover anything, grow anything, fix anything, or even creatively destroy anything. They're the worst of the worst. Born in liberty and prosperity and they wake up every morning scheming with all the limited brain power they possess to bring the country down to tyranny and darkness.

It's often said there is a cycle where there is a generation, or multiple generations of mature men and women who, through necessity, build and create and fight and defend civilization, and then inevitably they produce subsequent generations who piss it all away in ignorance and weakness and idle, shallow decadence. I don't see the landscape as it is now as being part of that cycle. That cycle never hits rock bottom like things have today. What is happening today is God's elect are becoming more and more rare. Less and less of them are being born. More and more worthless reprobate souls are appearing on the scene. End times Satanic moves have been quickening as a result. When Satan is able to fool the nations to the extent that he can assert dominion over the entire planet we are seeing the end.

God's elect, Christians, Bible-believing Christians, are suppose to confront Satan in all this though. Stand ground, occupy ground. That tempers us, sanctifies us, and calls out the few elect not yet called. All the while saying to God: please get us off this idiotic ride...

Jerusalem to Athens to Rome to London to Philadelphia

[From an email...]

Steve Bannon is quoted in a new bio:

America has “an underlying culture, that has been passed down from Jerusalem, to Athens, to Rome, to London.

I recently wrote that post on 5 cities history (including Washington - or more symbolically, Philadelphia - at the end of that river of influence through time). Bannon is in sync with how I think (and no doubt millions of others in this country). He also was greatly influenced by Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Plutarch, and Thucydides. All books on my 12 book list. Other books he cites as major influences are Catholic oriented: Imitation of Christ (OK, not exclusively Catholic), Loyola, etc.


Objective understanding

[From 2011 on my Fourth Way blog.]

It's a big deal getting understanding of biblical doctrine. Seeing it, accepting it, valuing it. It builds your spiritual body. The same with getting parts in relation to the whole understanding of the word of God. It's unusual. As I'm here reading endless chapters of the Old Testament I sometimes think how unusual it is compared to what is happening everywhere else all around me. Not that I'm special, just how different it is.

You have to engage this living language of the Old and New Testaments until it fuses into something higher, until you see it as truly universal, until its seeming provincial, localized aspects fall away. Then it becomes true objective understanding. There's nothing under the sun (or beyond the sun) within time, or in eternity, that can't be understood by it (other than God, completely).

In the above I am assuming Man #4 type efforts and development into Man #5.

Where anger has no point (second conscious shock)

[This is from 2013 on another blog. It has Fourth Way (Ouspensky) language in it, but it still has value for a church level Christian. There is church level and there is order level. One need not be interested in or drawn toward the order level to be saved.]

I've been reading The King in His Beauty by Thomas R. Schreiner, and it is scattershot, but it keeps pulling me back in. Here is a quote from the chapter on Psalms that I found very interesting:

* * * * * * *

As Gerald Wilson points out, even in the shape of the Psalter there is a movement from lament to praise, so that laments are more common in the first part of the Psalter, and praise concludes it. “Praise,” Wilson says, “constitutes another reality in which the presence of God has become so real that anger has no point, pain has no hold, and death lacks all power to sting.”

Schreiner, Thomas R. (2013-07-15). King in His Beauty, The: A Biblical Theology of the Old and New Testaments (p. 250). Baker Publishing Group. Kindle Edition.

* * * * * * *

I think that language is unusual. "Praise constitutes another reality." Then this: "...in which the presence of God has become so real that *anger has no point*..."

That's what I was getting at with resentment. I was saying it this way: "What is the goal of our resentment? To what end?" Concluding that the only end is the ludicrous end of burning down the world, which is hell itself.

Where anger has no point. That's a state of being. A level of being to be reached.


In other words:

"...in which the presence of God has become so real..." (First Conscious Shock)

"...that anger has no point..." (Second Conscious Shock)

Which would make 'praise' (which he calls another reality) akin to the third and fourth state of consciousness. It's interesting anyway that 'praise' goes from being an activity to being a destination. A place.


! ! ! ! ! ! !

It is striking how that phrase - "where anger has no point" - captures the second conscious shock in a deep and newly-articulated way.

First principles of nationhood

Without these a nation is not a nation:

1. Familial ties

2. A common language

3. A common national epic

4. A common faith

[Adapted from a Michael Walsh article.]

Thought, after sickness...

[an old post from another blog, as are the three others below this]

After awhile, once you get to the core of orthodox
Christianity, you see it really is rather esoteric in
nature. A 3 in 1, 1 in 3 God; a new birth experience
that has catch-22s all over it (I didn't do it, God
does it; yet part of God doing it is me moving in that
direction in all the various ways that happens, etc.);
a new birth experience that requires an inner
reorientation from self-will to real will, going from
acting bottom-up to acting top-down, and how that is
not 'effort' yet it is effort of a kind, etc., etc.

The big panorama behind it all can be acquired from
the theologians. The covenant theologians. Federal
theology. The covenant of redemption and works and
grace. The four states of man. The fall and
reconnection by faith and return, etc. 

But the teaching of Christ itself having to do with
sanctification, or development gets lost. The
theologians are not as adept on that subject. You
have to get that from the Spirit. And language
inspired by the Spirit.

But it can all become dead quickly if you stay within
the mainstream and allow the mainstream to stifle your
development. You have to be light on your feet with
anything to do with the Spirit and spiritual

And you have to continually go to the Source, the Word
of God, and actually find for yourself what is in
there and put it together. Continually. 

Prayer is an art. If you pray for things, worldly
things, that make your life smooth and comfortable or
that goes against God's will you'll probably be
disappointed in some way. If you pray for things that
have room for maneuvering in realms of higher laws the
art of prayer then becomes more interesting. 

When everybody around me was getting sick with a
vicious virus I prayed to be protected from it. Then
I stuck myself with an infected needle (giving an
elderly person an insulin shot, something I'd never
done before, then carrying the used needle and lancet
- that's used to test blood sugar - I got careless and
pricked my finger; within half a day I had a full dose
of the norovirus). So I did it, God didn't. But
sickness is something we learn from anyway. 
Potentially. A restart. Mentally as well. 

But once you have the big background panoramic picture
that the Bible and biblical doctrine presents, then
just like all the mystics you have to find what it is
you have to hold on to and practice and live by. It's
there in the Bible, and in a language like the Work. 
It's not one thing, most likely, for everybody, but to
find what you need does take effort and valuation and
constant staying on it.

An observation on the classic catechisms (Westminster, Heidelberg, etc.)

Notice when reading one of the classic catechisms such as the Westminster Shorter Catechsim or the Heidelberg Catechism there is a disappointment when you get beyond the doctrinal parts and they close out with rundowns of the Ten Commandments and the Lord's Prayer. There is disappointment because more is expected. What is missing? 

It's in these parts of the catechisms that is elucidated what one actually does as a Christian. Good works. Good works, as the Heidelberg Catechism (or, Ursinus in his Commentary on that catechism) states are works that are commanded by God. So they then discuss the Ten Commanments. Which is proper, but they are leaving out something rather big.

They are leaving out the teaching on good works of Jesus and the apostles in the New Testament. Things like turn the other cheek, and love thy enemy, and practicing watchfulness, and separating yourself unto the Gospel (and away from the world), and fearing God only, and wait on the Lord, &c. All of which can be seen, or culled by implication from the Ten Commandments, but they are not explicitly stated in them which is why Jesus spoke the words he spoke in the New Testament. And they aren't all summed up, either, in the Lord's Prayer, anymore than the Sermon on the Mount is summed up in the Lord's Prayer. 

It's a strange missing element from these great, classic catechisms.

It's because the teaching of Jesus is of a different level and stage. To value the teaching of Jesus (to even see it) requires true regeneration effected by the Word and the Spirit. Narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Now it is high time to awake out of sleep...

Two-Register Cosmology

"Two-Register Cosmology: Central in biblical revelation is the relationship of God, whose dwelling place is heaven's glory (Ps 115:16), to man on earth. A two-register cosmos is thus the scene of the biblical drama, which features constant interaction between the upper and lower registers.[3]" 

"[3]Theological differences aside, the cosmology of mythology is analogous. Indeed, mythology may be defined formally precisely as a portrayal of human affairs in terms of a dynamic interrelating of divine and human realms." 

Excerpt and footnote from Kline's article 'Space and Time in the Genesis Cosmogony' included as Appendix A in his book God, Heaven and Har Magedon, pg. 224, Wipf & Stock Publishers, 2006

Practical mystic

Quote I found (you have to read the whole thing):

'This brings me to the supremest and most solid truth contained in the Science of prayer. The praying mind, by its mere attitude of faith and earnest expectation, opens itself out to the tremendous inflow of Divine Energy. It draws close to the centre of all-power, wisdom and love, and drinks deep of the living waters of life so that even the very face or flesh begins to shine under the influence of this self-polarization — if I may be permitted to use this word — through prayer. Here is the causa nuxus between a prayer and its sure reply. Do you remember what Lord Rosebery said of the great Puritan Mystic Oliver Cromwell? If not, please let me quote: “The secret of his extraordinary success — he was a practical mystic — the most formidable and terrible of all combinations. The man who combines inspiration, apparently derived — in my judgment, really derived — from close communion with the Supernatural and the Celestial, a man who has that inspiration and adds to it the energy of a mighty man of action, such a man as that lives in communion on a Sinai of his own; and when he pleases to come down to this world below, seems armed with no less than the terrors and decrees of the Almighty Himself.”'


Not a Christian site, but interesting nonetheless. Calling Cromwell a 'Puritan mystic' is interesting in itself.


This 3-part article in the American Spectator concisely and clearly describes the competing interests in America today


A reminder to make yourselves constantly familiar with the Rich Higgins Memo

It's rare when something is as powerfully on-the-mark as the memo Rich Higgins drew up before getting fired from his executive branch job by one of President Trump's worst hires, General McMaster. And that it is succinct and to-the-point just adds to its value.

Here it is.

Read it periodically as things unfold. Do research on parts of it that are new to you. Never heard of the Frankfurt School? Look it up. Don't know who Antonio Gramsci was or what he taught? Make an effort to learn. Get to know these tactics of the enemy. They are Satan's army. All these tactics they engage in will convict them at the Great White Throne Judgment. I would go so far to say they are the reprobates. They have the stench of hell fire on them. They've used these same tactics elsewhere in the world to murder scores of millions and to hold under their boot of tyranny hundreds of millions more.

This is the stark spiritual battlefield. Acquire the full armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18), and learn the tactics of the enemy.

Message to some for whom the shoe fits

It's a powerful force inside people to turn away from the reality of evil so as not to have to be awake and be conscious of evil to begin with. When the people who do that self-identify as Christian they need to question themselves whether they believe in the supernatural and in evil and sin to begin with. If you don't, you're not a Christian. You're a nominal Christian. Something akin to a practical atheist or a practical deist.

Yes, it's very depressing to wake up to the evil of this fallen world. Including our own sinful fallen nature. It's like waking up to the realization you're in a prison full of violent lunatics. Not a happy situation. Not a blue skies and flowers and puppies situation. But the reality of our situation is what it is. There's a reason the Bible tells us we need the full armor of God.

When you mock people who are awake and speak or write about it you play into Satan's hands. If you want a clear example of that study how the mass Satanic front religion called Islam infiltrates societies, mocking anybody who is awake to them and tells the truth about them. This is how Satan operates. "We are a religion of peace. Why are you a bigot towards us? Why are you acting crazy? We believe in the brotherhood of man. Everybody is equal..." That's where they are currently in America. In England, where they sense they now have the upper hand, it is suddenly, "Behead anybody who insults Islam! We will rape your daughters and kill you if you confront us!"

This is all obvious for people who are awake. And even some of the mockers are able to see an example that's become as obvious as Islam. But to see other forces in society in league with Satan it's a little more difficult for the sleeping crowd. Again, though, I direct this to self-identified Christians. If you mock people who are pointing out the evil around you you probably have not been fully initiated into the faith (read the Bible complete over and over). Many of these people simply lack the background to see what is happening (they lack historical perspective, for instance), but it is more foundational for them that they likely don't yet believe in the supernatural or evil and sin.


An insight on Trump

Reading Trump's Tweets this morning I saw something. The reason he freaks establishment Republicans out so much is he is constantly not giving a f**k about the Satanic spirit in the people who are against us. Everybody else is afraid of that spirit, and think, "No, don't make them angry! They have the holy and dangerous spirit of Satan! They'll hurt us!" Trump is not only not afraid of it all, but he doesn't play the pilgrim politics game of pretending they're friendly to us whenever they throw us a bone and sound reasonable. He's still like, "F**k off, Pocahontas, we know what you're all about."

Pilgrim politics is a phrase from Meredith Kline. It's what the Israelites engaged in when they were surrounded by the Satanic nations. It's what all Christians have engaged in since Jesus. George W. Bush holding hands with a Saudi sheikh after 9/11. The constant pretending that evil and hatred of Christians is not really there.

But that is all of a past era now. Trump is not engaging in pilgrim politics. He's calling evil what it is. This freaks people out. It's more like consummation ethics rather than the past era of common grace ethics.


An observation on the strange behavior of establishment Christians

When self-identified Christians don't believe what they profess to believe what you get is a sort of practical Deist. That is, a 'Christian' who really doesn't believe in the supernatural. That is how Deism is expressed in our day among establishment Christian types.

When Christian leaders or teachers (of whatever type) finds themselves in this situation you can see that it manifests psychologically in similar ways.

1. When such Christians are in the presence of real Christians (something they try to avoid at all costs) their conflicted psychology manifests as brusqueness and even nastiness towards the real Christian. Mocking as well.

2. When such Christians are in the presence of 'their own kind' their conflicted psychology (not believing what they profess) manifests in a strange immature, giggling behavior. They simply giggle a lot.

Go to pretty much any Christian internet forum (PuritanBoard being a longstanding example) to witness the nastiness and mocking towards real Christians who naively show up in their environment.

Listen to pretty much any Christian podcast to witness the incessant giggling that goes on. (They, if cornered, which they never allow themselves to be, would probably defend this strange behavior as 'Christian joy' or some such thing, but the mocking attitudes embedded in it all give them away.)

Christianity cannot be an establishment phenomenon. Establishments, as a phenomenon, are too stupid to contain real Christianity.


Baptism: a real Christian has to be strict on what it is and does

Ritual water baptism is a visual parable. The real thing is regeneration effected by the word and the Spirit. Move toward God, and He'll move toward you (God tells us this many times in the Old and the New Testaments). Engage the living, quickening language of the word of God. Don't bank on ritual. Read the Bible, get understanding of doctrine, pray, practice godliness (which is not moralism)...

Baptism as a visual parable means: if you need it, OK. If you don't need it, that's OK too. Just don't think that ritual regenerates. (Zwingli said baptism was for "stupid people." I see his point, but I disagree. What he should have said is it's there if someone needs it. Others don't. He was probably out of patience with the baptismal regeneration types.)

If you're a blood-drenched Viking in a clearing in the forest in 920 A.D. and you submit to water baptism it just may induce an overwhelming, abiding feeling or sense in you that carries you forward to actually getting direct understanding of the faith from the Bible and acting from the faith. The ritual is not without use or power. But it doesn't regenerate.

Or I should say, God can regenerate any way He wants, but look at the evidence in how Satan acts. When Satan has power over Christians (as during the Roman Catholic tyranny) Satan allowed people to be baptized all day and all night. What, though, did Satan withhold from people upon penalty of torture and death? He withheld the word of God. The Bible. Regeneration of God's elect is what Satan hates the most as our enemy, and he knows what regenerates, and it's not ritual water baptism. It's the living, quickening language of the Bible, and the Holy Spirit. Satan loves it when people think they're regenerated just because they got baptized.

Allahu-Akbar doesn't mean God is Great, it means Allah is greater (Satan is greater than God), and it also means a lot more...

This article may look just a bit 'too' long, but at least skim it because it's really informative, and it also reminds us of Satan's presence and how we need to be awake to that. It made me want to read the Bible, for instance.


Bunyan on Baptism

The Life of John Bunyan by Edmund Venables (1819-1895), location 1277-84

With these he will not quarrel about "things that are circumstantal" such as water baptism, which he regards as something quite indiffrent, men being "neither the better for having it, nor the worse for having it not."


The Church is bigger than...

Learn to say this phrase: the Church is bigger than ---

What is the Church bigger than? Whoever is speaking with the sense that the Church is what they are.

To the Pope: the Church is bigger than you.

To the Reformed pastor/theologian: the Church is bigger than you.

To the independent, fundamentalist: the Church is bigger than you.

To the liberal/leftist Christian types: the Church is bigger than you.

To any who affect to appropriate the Kingdom of God on earth to themselves and their program...the Church is bigger than you.

Oh, but (they say), one must define what Church is! Thus, my seminary degree and this branch/denomination with its history that goes back (some, not many) to before we were born defines what church is!

No... The word of God and the Holy Spirit in the quickened, regenerated heart and soul of each Christian defines what Church is.

The word and the Spirit; not man and ritual and building.

The Kingdom of God exists in the new heart of every regenerated believer.

The Church is bigger than you.


James White is not showing Muslims any love; he's using them to get praise from the world

Here's James White defending being targeted by Muslims as a dupe; and then being caught acting like a dupe:

@JeffTheGK You know what, Jeff? Here's my suggestion. Do not support me in my work. Remain isolated from the Islamic community---don't seek to understand their life or their language or their beliefs. Stay safely in the womb of American evangelicalism. I have no intention of joining you, for numerous reasons. First, you all have failed, miserably, to provide any kind of meaningful and compelling biblical argumentation, as has been demonstrated ad nauseam. Secondly, every single person working in Islamic countries around the world with whom I have spoken has simply rolled their eyes at the criticisms you have leveled. They can tell you (critics in general) have no idea what it means to live and work out in the real world of Christian minority status. They have, to a person, encouraged me to press on, despite the howls of the American critics. I have now traveled enough in this world to gain sufficient perspective to see how safe, and introverted, and self-centered, American evangelicalism can be. I have grander goals and desires. I believe the gospel is the power of God and it does not need to be protected from exposure to other views. It needs to be explained and proclaimed to those who have either never heard it, or have only heard a misrepresentation of it. And I will seek to continue to proclaim it with love and compassion in my heart. I will show that love by accurately representing even those who seek to contradict my words. I will show respect by being truthful about even those who mistreat me. I will not call Muslims names, show them disrespect and disdain, as your entire cadre of critics do daily to Dr. Qadhi and anyone else you all decide to dehumanize and vilify. And I will trust that the sovereign King of Grace will make His gospel to come alive in the hearts of His elect people, and that He will graciously bring hosts of precious man and women to the feet of Jesus out of the Islamic faith, not by force, not by my arguments, but by the glorious revelation of the Lord of Glory, Jesus, accomplished by the almighty Holy Spirit, bringing the gospel to life in their hearts. And if I have to endure the constant misrepresentations and epithets of those who gnash their teeth at my efforts, then that will be the price. So be it.

Notice how he casts his critics into hell (they "gnash their teeth")...

James White is a Bowe Bergdahl of Christianity.

Each year White announces more verses and sections of the Bible he refuses to "preach"; declaring them to be unbiblical, based on his scholarship. Mostly this is driven by Muslim critics of the Bible. Then he sucks up to Muslims ("Teach me...") while signalling to them his politically-correct disdain for American Christians.

All while having no clue the way you evangelize to Muslims is to proclaim the law - yes, the law - and the Gospel directly and boldly to their face. You don't give such entrenched Devil worshipers only the Gospel. Of course it helps to fear God alone to be able to do that. White's seeking of the praises of the world is not doing Muslims any good.

James White may still be a Christian, but he is worthless in Christ's army.



"Engineering is, in its most general sense, turning an idea into a reality – creating and using tools to accomplish a task or fulfil a purpose."

"The word ‘engineer’ derives not, as you might imagine, from being-someone-who-deals-with-engines but rather from its Latin root ingeniarius, Old French engignier, and Middle English engyneour to mean someone who is ingenious in solving practical problems."

"The six horizontal divisions or categories of engineering activity are civil, mechanical, electrical, chemical, computing, and, more recently, medical engineering."

"Man’s ability to make tools is remarkable. But it is his ingenious ability to make sense of the world and use his tools to make even more sense and even more ingenious tools, that makes him exceptional. To paraphrase Winston Churchill, ‘we shape our tools and thereafter they shape us’. Tools are part of what it is to be human. In the words of Henry Petroski, ‘To engineer is human’."

"Yet for many, there is a disturbing cloud. Once tools were simple common sense – almost all were understandable to the intelligent layperson. Since the Industrial Revolution, the interior workings of many tools have become mysterious, complex, and opaque to all but specialists. The culture of opposition between the arts, religion, science, and technology has widened and is often antagonistic. Matthew Crawford has accused engineers of hiding the works, ‘rendering many of the devices we depend on every day unintelligible to direct inspection’. On the other hand, Brian Arthur has described a process he calls ‘structural deepening’ in which engineers inevitably add complexity as they strive to enhance performance. There is an increasing realization that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are intertwined in a way that needs disentangling. This is urgent because engineering is so intimately part of who we are that effective democratic regulation requires us to understand something of what engineering offers, what it might offer in the future, and, perhaps most importantly, what it cannot ever deliver."

"Some of the various types of engineer: Acoustic, aeronautical, aerospace, agricultural, asphalt, automotive, biomechanical, biomedical, bridge, building, cast metal, chartered, chemical, civil, computer (software, hardware), concrete, construction, cost, control, corrosion, craft, dam, design, diesel, dynamics, electrical, electronic, engineering worker, environmental, explosives, finance, fire, gas, harbour, healthcare, heating, highway, incorporated, industrial, information, instrumentation, knowledge, lighting, marine, material, measurement and control, mechanical, medical, mineral, mining, motor, municipal, naval architects, non-destructive testing, nuclear, operations, photonics, plumbing, power, production, professional, project management, quality, railway, refrigeration, registered, reliability, river, robotic, royal (military), safety, sanitary, sensor, signal processing, space, structural, sustainability, systems, technician, transportation, turbine, welding, water."

"Confusion about the words ‘engineering’ and ‘technology’ often derives from different uses by different people from different backgrounds in different contexts. We therefore have to be very careful to make clear what we mean. In this book, I will use engineering and technology as synonyms but distinct from science and mathematics in their central purpose. So in summary, the purpose of science is to know by producing ‘objects’ of theory or ‘knowledge’. The purpose of mathematics is clear, unambiguous, and precise reasoning. The purpose of engineering and technology is to produce ‘objects’ that are useful physical tools with other qualities such as being safe, affordable, and sustainable. All are activities arising from human will that sustains our sense of purpose. Science is an activity of ‘knowing’, whereas engineering and technology are activities of ‘doing’ – but both rely on mathematics as a language and a tool. The methods they adopt to achieve their purposes are so very similar that, unless you understand their motive and purpose, it is often unclear whether a given person is behaving as a scientist or as an engineer/technologist."

"The story of engineering naturally divides into five ages – gravity, heat, electromagnetism, information, and systems. The first three are the natural phenomena that scientists study and that engineers and technologists use to make their tools. From the ancient skills used to build pyramids from natural materials to the modern engineering of skyscrapers, we have systematically developed our scientific understanding of gravity and used it to build bigger, higher, and longer. Our primitive control of fire has developed into mechanical and chemical power from heat through steam, internal combustion, and jet engines and manufactured materials. Electromagnetism is a relative latecomer in the long history of human development which has given us electricity, motors, computers, and telecommunications. Out of this came the age of information, which has turned now into the age of complex systems. In the last chapter, we will see how ‘systems thinking’ is helping us to integrate disparate specialisms by seeing tools as physical ‘manipulators’ of energy embedded in ‘soft’ people systems. From the science of Aristotle to Newton to Einstein, from the craft of Vitruvius to Leonardo to William Morris, and from the engineering of Archimedes to Faraday, to Berners-Lee and the World Wide Web, the story of engineering is racing ahead at an ever-increasing pace. It is a story that has had, and is still having, a profound influence on the quality of human life."

Engineering: A Very Short Introduction, by David Blockley


Not quite white pill, but in that direction

I was going to delete the two black pill posts below, but I'll just 50% disavow them. Better to be positive. Not naive, but a positive spiritual warrior.

Have to be careful (another black pill post)

One has to be careful not to get to where you are really just hating humanity in general. I caught myself in the act. Looking at a busy street scene in a major city and having contempt in general for what I saw. Why? Everything rolled into one. The lack of ideal humanity. (Which one only really sees when one race, young people, in a group, are dressed in similar clothing, uniform, white robes, whatever. There's a sense of everything in place and everything taken care of. There's a sense of group natural charm and skills and intelligence and common-sense and tradition, and ritual overtaking individual stupidity and bad behavior). So you see the messy, disparate, multi-race melange in the city street scene and it gives the impression of Satanic chaos, preditorial anarchy, empty, undirected, filthy, stupid, depressing.

So do I hate humanity? In a sense, yes. I have to excuse myself from the picture though. I might not be considered normal enough to be in ideal humanity. It's really, though, Satanic humanity that I hate. Humanity as Satan wants humanity to be. Which he is succeeding to make humanity be.

Satan has really messed up humanity. Also, has to be said, as the white nations are going under...this world is really going to be hell.


Black pill, pt. 44563

What lunacy we're surrounded by continually. Increasing in exponential degree. Banal, obnoxious mostly. Village idiots with megaphones and decadent freak exibitionists, banal, boring, but evil nevertheless with their Orwellian political coercion on every front all the time. What a demonic show. Thanks, Satan. And thanks to your wonderful children. Some of the evil is very bloody too, though. Spectacular evil. Crucifying children evil. Throwing acid into faces evil. And the element in it all of permanent change for the worse really gives a feeling of joy.

And it all happened in such a short time. My lifetime. Wonderful luck. Living in America at least I did miss the 20th century totalitarianism. I suppose everybody in all eras between the two advents sees an increasing demonic show. In my case though I got to witness a nation uniquely successful get turned into a filthy public restroom with corruption and no more mature adults thrown into the equation.

People just go about their lives, but this all is a ten on a scale of ten demonic show going on now.

And all the young and middle-aged white folk are committing suicide. Which is celebrated. Because they're slave holders. Or something. That's OK, though, because Somalians with 70 I.Q.s can be our airline mechanics, and guys named Ach'med can run the government. Civilization does not know color or religion, right? Oh, wait a minute.

When western Europe and the English speaking nations go the demonic show is total. That means the demonic show is total.

The only question now is how long does God allow the demonic show to carry on, now that it has attained global dominion...


Portrait of globalists

James White misses the mark again

On his Dividing Line podcast James White is still defending himself against criticism that he is a dupe of Islamists.

So he just, rather comically because he did it very dramatically, made his ONE BIG POINT to his critics, and it's as off-the-mark as one can be regarding Christianity vis-a-vis atheism and Islam.

Here is the podcast. His big statement starts at the 45:10 mark (and I'm referring to the audio only link).

His big statement is this: you can't say Christianity and Islam have nothing in common because adherents of both are theists and theists share a common opposition to atheists.

OK. What is wrong with this statement? The problem with the statement is nowhere does the Bible pose atheism as the opposite or antithesis of faith. The Bible very clearly poses idol worship as the antithesis of faith. Atheists are idol worshipers of one kind or another (in our day if not the planet then the centralized, collectivist state and some form of utopian ideology will be their main idol). Muslims also are idol worshipers (a 7th century tribal moon god in the form of a black rock which ultimately is a front for Satan himself). Muslims worship a very big false idol, they worship Satan himself. And Satan has poured his attention into Islam and cultivated Islam to make it his biggest front in this world. Islam and Cultural Marxism, which today are going hand-in-hand in Satan's ultimate putsch to assert dominion over the entire planet.

Again, though, atheism and Islam very much are on one side of a divide against Christianity in that they both involve idol worship.

Thus White's dramatic big point is rather comically wrong. Islam and Christianity do not stand shoulder-to-shoulder against atheism. Islam and Christianity indeed have nothing in common, as White's critics are attempting to explain to him. Unless you want to say being a complete counterfeit of something is equal to having something in common with it, but I think White would only assert that in the most dire last move he might have. Will he concede being wrong? No. He'll pretend he was aware of such distinctions and so forth. All knowledge and wisdom begins with him, after all (see next paragraph)...

A note on White to his recent critics (and I usually send posts like this to individual people involved): narcissism is a feature of our fallen nature. We all have features of narcissism in us. Yet there is something called Narcissistic Personality Disorder. It's humorously called 16 forever. White has it. Arguing with a person who has NPD is like arguing with a know-it-all 16 year old. He will never concede being wrong on anything. He 'learns on the run', meaning, if he is caught being ignorant about something (as White often is) he simply does a cursory googling of it then comes back the next day and pretends he "just got to the matter" because he was "doing a 100 mile bike ride" or "in the Ukraine dodging RPGs in a civil war" or what not, then he states what he got wrong as if he's known about it and been speaking on it since he was "handing out leaflets to Mormons back in the day" and so on and so on. You can't teach a person with NPD, you can't argue with them, you can only be drawn into their vain, small, shallow world.


Bullinger's classic book Decades

[From an email]

Finally the classic work from the 1500s titled Decades, by Bullinger is available here in a good ebook format free:


There is an anecdote that when the clergy in England were put upon to reform they were made to read the Bible daily, and read one of these 50 sermons a week (five decades in the book) and write notes on it all.

Protestant - Calvinist (and I know Bullinger lived alongside Calvin, i.e. didn't come after him) - works from the 1500s have a more raw (and in my mind strong and interesting) feel about them. Just skimming Decades now I was reading Pythagoras and Seneca that Bullinger was quoting on the subject of God. Bullinger and Zwingli both saw classical writers differently than theologians that came after. They knew them and were obviously influenced by them. They weren't shallow regarding such influences. They knew they weren't Scripture, but they knew their worth. - C.


Resentment, gratitude, and the law

Jesus teaches us how to navigate through the dark medium of the law of God as distorted and twisted by fallen angels and fallen man. When Jesus says if you get hit on one cheek, turn the other cheek as well he is teaching us how to navigate through the dark medium of the law. When Jesus says give your coat as well when your shirt is demanded of you He is teaching us how to navigate the dark medium of the law. When Jesus says love your enemy He is teaching us how to navigate the dark medium of the law.

A way to sum up the teaching of Jesus along these lines is to put it in, in effect, a royal law: have gratitude in place of resentment for everything all the time.

Resentment chains us to the law as its used by fallen man and fallen angels to enslave us. It's like willingly putting the chain around our own neck every time we indulge resentment. Resentment is pleasurable to our fallen nature, which is why it is an emotion that is indulged.

Gratitude frees us from the dark power of the law as it is dealt by fallen man and fallen angels.

Resentment is the will of our fallen nature. Gratitude is the will of God manifesting in us.

Law as the context for the formula 'the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom'

The context for understanding the great biblical formula 'the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom' is this: the distorted, twisted law of God used as a weapon by fallen angels and fallen man to accuse, shame, and coerce everybody into conforming to the demands of the world, the flesh, and the Devil.

Meaning, when you fear God alone you then don't fear man and the world and their demands they make on you, explicitly and implicitly.

This is why fearing God alone is such a shocking (and dangerous) act. Your family, your community, the fallen angels above will register their outrage, disapproval and ultimately their contempt for you when you do this.

The law of God is all the law there is. Positive law (man made law) is derivative of God's law commanded in the Bible. The act of making law(s) is derived from the existence of God's law itself. Man can make good and useful laws; he can also make laws that serve his fallen nature to Satanic degrees; but it's all derived from the existence of God's original law revealed in the Old and New Testaments.

The mechanism, or use and effect of law is the same whether it is God's pure law or it is man's or the Devil's impure law. It demands, it accuses, it coerces. It defines sin by its existence, and it enflames sin by its existence and its impure use.

The main point is law itself, whether God's pure law or that law twisted and distorted by fallen man and fallen angels, is a curse on humanity. It is a curse of the fall. It is a curse in its pure form because after the fall we no longer are able to follow God's law, thus it only condemns now. It is also a curse in all impure forms of it because it is used to enslave and coerce and accuse.

This universal medium of law is what we exist in. It's like existing in a black cloud. We can't escape it.

Then God tells us: the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. What does fear of the Lord mean, practically? It means when you fear God alone you no longer fear the law as it is perversely wielded by the world and the Devil to coerce, accuse, and shame, which frees you to pursue true wisdom. It ultimately means faith in Jesus Christ and his work on the cross. Because that is the only thing that frees us from that everpresent black cloud of the law described above. With faith in Jesus Christ and redemption from the curse of the law which we have in the blood of Christ who came to fulfill the law and pay the penalty of death sentenced on us by Adam's fall we are no longer in bondage to the law and to fallen man and fallen angels wielding that law in twisted, distorted ways as a means to suffering and death.

Then, what does the beginning of wisdom mean? It means the beginning of sanctification to the end of glorification.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. In the context of the law and the gospel.

What is new in all the above is seeing law as permiating all phenomena of existence, blanketing and smothering all interactions between God and man, angels and man, and man and man. All society from the enviable ideal of American liberty to the horror of totalitarian enslavement. The ideal of the American system of government which seeks to contain and put checks and balances on man's fallen nature and misuse of law to the totalitarian states which allow the free flow of evil through their leadership to their suffering prisoners.

This is a higher vision take on law, but necessary to see what law and gospel really is; to see how it effects all humanity of whatever belief (or non-belief) in whatever part of the world; to see its universal relevance to all humanity; to see its power over all; to see its everpresent effect in all of life; to truly see our situation (which understanding is all enhanced by honestly seeing it as well in human nature and in history).

When you walk into a room or outside you walk in a medium of the law; and when you fear God alone and not man or the world you are now a dangerous figure on the landscape of the world, no longer in bondage to that law. You are a king. A true king.


Message to Protestants who fetishize the Romanist doctrine of infant baptism

During the darkness of the tyranny of the Roman Catholic Church Satan called people to be baptized all day and all night; but he kept people away from the living, quickening word of God upon penalty of torture and death. Satan knows what regenerates, and it's not ritual water baptism. It is the word and the Spirit that regenerates God's elect. This is why God's elect don't exalt cleric and ritual above the word and the Spirit, and never will.


An apologist's shallow game

Argued into the faith is not the same as regeneration by the word and the Spirit.

Sah'eel heard the call, but it remained external. It never was internal. It was surface and intellectual. An apologist's shallow game.

"I left Islam because I studied Muhammad's life. I accepted the Gospel because I studied Jesus' life."

On your terms. The Devil and God each made their pitch, and you intellectually decided to throw in with God.

All Christians come from the darkness to the light. It's not unusual to be in bondage to Satan's Kingdom when we hear the call. That call, though, is made effectual by the Holy Spirit, not our mental faculties or our ability to weigh good and evil.

It's not surprising Sah'eel did not like Calvinism.

Sah'eel is not in hell. It doesn't work that way. You have to be judged to hell at the Great White Throne Judgment. Sah'eel can still be regenerated by the word and the Spirit, because God acts from eternity, and the Holy Spirit can regenerate at any point in the timeline of a human being. That is getting into higher aspects of time which the Bible pulls back from doing because it explodes the narrative. Sah'eel's problem is he is empty in his core. He needs to develop in an essential way. He can do this. Suffering is a great gift towards this happening. (Note: in this paragraph I am not speaking of universalism or second-chance-ism. I'm speaking of recurrence, which is not reincarnation. Same life, dead in sin, over and over, until regeneration, or the harvest.)


Real Christians reject shallowness and practical deism and Marxist-inspired carping

Real Christians (in my case, Calvinists as it concerns the five solas, doctrines of grace, and the biblical structure of redemption that is Federal Theology) reject shallowness and practical deism; and...the Satanic spirit of the practice of default Critical Theory (incessant carping) incessantly applied to American Christians.

These are the three things you get when you tune into a Michael Horton type and his yes man chorus at his podcast.

1. Shallowness
2. Practical Deism
3. Critical Theory (as practice, directed incessantly at American Christians who instinctively reject their shallowness and practical deism).

The projection on these podcasts also is common. They call American Christians narcissists when the underlying anger that motivates their criticism is the rejection they experience from American Christians. "Listen to me!" they say, "Why aren't they listening to me?" Well, we must be narcissists, or something.

They catapult strawmen at us in their 'serious' criticism of what's wrong with us. We're gnostics (I've still yet to hear a seminary graduate who gives the least clue he knows what gnosticism was or how it manifests today in any way). If we disagree with the practical deists we wear crystals around our necks; we have the voice of God emanating from our burning bosoms; we flail around in states of 'enthusiasm.'

All this cultural Marxist critical theory style criticism in place of any actual proclaiming of the word of God or talking about doctrines of the Bible. That's not where their enthusiasm lies.

Yes, liberal Christians are shallow too. They're all shallow. They have all the traits of an establishment. They are establishment Christianity.

Oh, I forgot, they want us in their churches. Where their grape juice and crackers convey grace, if, that is, properly administered through the hands of duly ordained ministers who are 'in-place-of-Jesus' mediators. Ordained by, I guess, seminary degrees. Seminaries that are, pretty much all of them, marinated in cultural Marxism. Did I mention these practical deists give mouth service to 'some' supernaturalism in the Bible, but not to all, and overall, kind of don't really cotton to such nonsense to begin with? Hard to be a real Christian if you get embarrassed by supernatural parts of God's revelation, but that's practical deism for you.

They also imply that it's only meaningful to engage the word of God via hearing it spoken by a pastor in a church. The closeness to Rome of these practical deists also should not surprise.

Needless to say they are worthless in Christ's army. Oh, and I forgot to mention, they mock any mention of spiritual warfare. The spiritual battlefield, for them, doesn't exist. When you're going with the current of the world and the Devil and your fallen desires and demands the only war you recognize is the hatred and contempt you feel for real Christians...


Esoteric posts on the Law and on Race

Insight into why some people experience the Christian faith as sudden relief and comfort

After watching this video testimony from a young woman about her Christian faith I had an email exchange on it, and a real, unique insight came out of it.

In the video testimony the young woman spent a lot of time talking about how she, as a younger girl, experienced a type of anxiety (her word) that she couldn't figure out the source of and the medical community couldn't figure out the source of. Finally her mother simply gave her a Bible passage to read (from Isaiah), and it instantly gave her relief.

This is a phenomenon we hear over and over from Christians, i.e. how they get a real feeling of, I don't know, a pressure being taken off of them based on an encounter with Jesus or the word of God or the Holy Spirit and so on. I think I know what they're referring to now. Before I didn't get it and chalked it up to a sort of shallow churchy behavior or people saying what they think they are supposed to say because they think it's what they're supposed to feel when they become a Christian.

Here's what I now think is going on: in the spiritual realm, which we all are in (as well as being in this physical realm) they are experiencing being pulled back from (or out of) the darkness of Satan's Kingdom as it's experienced in the spiritual realm.

In the case of the girl what she was going through that she articulated as 'anxiety' was the usual sexual feelings manifesting in her young, maturing body, together with the usual pull of her peer group and the temptations and pull of the culture she lives in (a very decadent culture as we see currently) vis-a-vis her upbringing in a family that taught her the Bible and the Christian faith and going to church every Sunday (as she said). In other words, she was being pulled towards the darkness in the spiritual realm, and her own maturing sexuality was making the temptation and lure all the more strong, yet she knew it was the wrong direction, but since it was happening in the spiritual realm mostly for her (she lived in the country, in a seemingly safer environment from where such dark influences can overwhelm a young person) it manifested as a strong 'anxiety' within her. So now we can *see* how a passage of the word of God could indeed hit her suddenly (like an epiphany) and in a new way to in effect give her a solution to the struggle she was in the middle of; and *give her needed strength* and even a sense of shelter (from the storm), and an assurance that it's *OK* to stand in the light with her Creator over against the darkness of Satan's realm. So when a Christian like this says they felt a sudden sense of comfort and relief and so on we can see how that can be.

In this last paragraph I'll state just *why* Christians stating such things and describing such experiences would be mysterious to someone like myself. Take a person who has been involved in alcohol or drugs or crime all their life in one way or another. That is not *my* experience. Yet for a person who does have that experience you could see how they might have an experience/encounter with Jesus, the Bible, etc., and the sense of a weight being taken off them, that is similar to the girl described above. Just seeing that there is a solution, a way out, an *other side* to begin with. In my case, not totally inexperienced regarding drugs, alcohol, or even crime, but only in the 'sampling' degree of it (and I have original sin and actively sin like everybody else) I explained my situation/crisis to myself like this: I can't go forward, I can't go backward, I can't go left, I can't go right, I don't want to go down, I can only go upward. And upward to me meant engaging higher influences. So I did engage higher influences (imaginative literature, history, philosophy, art, music, science, sacred writings/religion) until I got to the summit level of those influences, and then finally moved on up to the beyond-summit level where the Old and New Testaments reside. Yet in all that effort to engage those influences and climb the mountain of them any sudden epiphany once I moved on to the beyond summit influence that is the Bible became diluted due to my being acclimated to the altitude I had laboriously climbed to. But if you've spent your life actively engaged in - and engulfed by - the low influences of the darkness of Satan's spiritual realm any *touch* with the living, quickening truth of Jesus and the word of God will most likely (as you are on the road to being a believer to begin with) ignite a real, sudden feeling of relief and comfort; and give you an epiphany that the other side - the light - exists; and that the all-powerful Creator of the universe is on your side.


Demonized types

Different categories of demonized people.

In Hollywood and the entertainment industry in general as-well-as the news media we seem to have demonized village idiots.

In politics you see many who one might label as demonized Babbitts. (Always have to consider some may not know such a reference, so go here if that applies.)

In academia demonized village idiots would apply as well to a good percentage of them, but also demonized narcissists who want to spill the blood of anybody applies.

In the realm of establishment Christianity (the leaders and teachers of establishment Christianity) you find demonized sheep dogs.

I don't usually like to use the sheep metaphor for Christians because the Devil tends to take that metaphor solely and run with it, but imagine, as a Bible-believing Christian, you are a sheep amidst other sheep and the sheep dogs that surround you are all demonized, and you know it. You eat some grass, look up, gaze upon the demonized sheep dogs, and think to yourself: "Damn. This is a f***ed up situation." That is how God's elect see the establishment churches today.


A simple rule of the faith

I just listened to a testimony of a young Christian woman. Here it is. It is simple. Plain. She obviously is not familiar with the tapestry of doctrine that one would find in a Reformed systematic theology, yet she seems to be somewhat familiar with her Bible. At least to some extent. She does also reference a book I'd never heard of so I googled it and it appears to be a Joyce Meyer book. I don't think she mentioned the author, so maybe there are two books with the title Battlefield of the Mind, I don't know. Just anticipating the usual attack and mocking if somebody goes to the link and sees that book referenced then accuses me of being all about some Christian TV personality, which I'm not. So be it.

What this young woman said that caught my attention though was an articulation of a real, though simple, rule she had come to regarding her faith. She sees her faith as a relationship with Jesus, yet not as that phrase is often used (a hazy, Hallmark card kind of sentiment) but as a real rule of faith that is practical level and doable. She says she makes her relationship with Jesus part of everything she does and thinks. She tries to grow in this relationship with Jesus, but the main theme seemed to be she really attempts to keep Jesus in her thoughts and by her side as she goes through life. She realizes He loves her and wants to protect her and comfort her. So this is a real, practical rule for a Christian to come to. For this young woman her faith is practical and real and focused on Jesus in a real way. She also gave hints that reading the Bible is part of how she sees all this.

It all struck me because it seemed to me (shocked me to remembrance) that much of my own thinking of the faith involves this realization that I have to be closer to God. Constantly. That He can't communicate with me or help me or guide me unless I am in a state of remembrance of Him. And this includes engaging the word of the Kingdom, the Holy Bible. So this thought of actually imagining Jesus with me, having Him in my thoughts, accompanying my thoughts, is a practical thing to do. A real rule of the day, as one might put it. I may be more interested in doctrine and in getting a parts in relation to the whole understanding of the Bible than this young woman is currently, yet I could see in her approach something plain and real and practical I knew I was missing in my own approach.


Another black pill post

[This was an email.]

These two pdfs are from David Naugle's academic homepage. He wrote Worldview: the History of a Concept.

Pt. 1

Pt. 2

By "The Liturgical Consummation of Worldviews" he means proceeding to the practical application of the Christian faith. Such things as Work teachings teach [for those uninitiated, Fourth Way, Ouspensky, etc.].

It's also what experimental Christianity means. (See also here.) He's not using that standard term for some reason.

He divides the faith into intellectual (Bible and doctrine), emotional (emotions, love, affections), and will (spiritual exercises, etc.).

He's starts out discussing how the Christian faith is not being lived out by Christians, and then discusses how it should be.

Transfer the pdfs to your favorite eReader and consider both together to be a small book. About 45 pages altogether. - C.

ps- A thought on this... He uses Tom Wolfe's novel as an example about a young country girl who is a Christian who goes to a university and is immediately taken down by prevalent non-Christian worldviews which also launch her into sexual degradations and so on. The Devil has all the advantages. Pretty easy to take young people down. Other than truly educated (homeschooled) who also know how the enemy operates. So my thought is this: there's no way average people can do successful battle with the Devil. It seems to me people have to be in patterns of life, family life for instance, community life, that surrounds them and protects them from Satanic assault; all the while the people are still mechanical in how they are going about their lives. Once those traditions and rituals and life structures are systematically destroyed you are just going to have chaos. You will have what we have today. Because the devil has all the advantages. (And people who eventually catch on rarely do it early in life, when so much damage can be done.) I only see war in the future. People aren't going to allow themselves to be under the foot of these low I.Q. Satanic hybrid slave level crap. (I just saw a picture of an 18 year old who sucker punched a 12 year old at an amusement park in front of the 12 year old's parents then beat up the parents (a gang of similar youth at that point). The picture showed a person with a DNA mixture you couldn't guess the content of. Black (negroid) hair, hispanic color, asian eyes, all around dumb, evil look. Is that taking over the world? Really?) My second Emerson quote in the last couple of days: "Nature is cruel to hybrids." Not seeing it yet. Let's recognize reality: things have gone so bad so quick it is probably supernatural. And the feel of it all is PURE HELL IS UPON US. Because there's no escape from these human demons. They've taken over every institution, they are breeding like rats, and they have crossed all borders. They also have mass communication technology radicalizing them daily. This is hell upon us. It gives a real sense of no relief in sight. Unless God hits them with plague or something...


More establishment churchian gigglers

Here's another great Christian podcast (ahem). OK, another establishment churchian podcast. They are discussing ritual in this broadcast. Yes, they are gigglers as well. You don't find many establishment churchian speakers who aren't gigglers. It makes one suspect the vast majority of establishment churchian speakers are taking psychotropic drugs of one kind or another. A LOT of giggling goes on in establishment churchianity.

A strong statement upcoming: if you want to hear the pure voice of Satan coming out of the mouths of his spiritual children in what is establishment Christianity listen to establishment Christian podcasts like this one. You might say to yourself: but it's just a couple of shallow pastor types talking about their favorite subject, ritual water baptism. No, you're not hearing it. This is Protestant Christianity that has been watered down to such a degree that these two indoctrinated dopes actually spend an hour seriously discussing the micro differences of ritualism. As if it means anything. This is where Satan wants them. This is where Satan wants ALL Christians.

Satan hates regeneration by the word and the Spirit. If Satan can convince people that ritual water baptism regenerates he's got people right where he wants them. Notice they spend inordinate time defending themselves against the charge that they believe in baptismal regeneration. That is because they believe in baptismal regeneration. Here is how it is:

Roman Catholics bring in baptismal regeneration through the front door in the light of day.

Lutherans bring in baptismal regeneration through the back door in the light of day.

Reformed paedo-baptists bring in baptismal regeneration through the back door in the darkness of night.
Regeneration is the main thing. It is the greatest enemy to Satan that he has. It is what brings God's elect into His Kingdom. In the darkness of the Roman Catholic tyranny the Devil called everybody to ritual water baptism all day and all night - but - he kept the word of God away from people upon penality of torture and death. The Devil knows what regenerates and it isn't ritual water baptism. It is the word and the Spirit.

Establishment Christianity (or churchianity) exalts man and ritual above the word and the Spirit. Notice they never proclaim the actual living, quickening, supernatural word of God in any of these podcasts. Not even in their churches on Sundays. They give 'sermons.' They're doing everything Satan wants them to do. Tame slaves of the Devil.

Meanwhile street Christians who actually read the Bible complete, get regenerated by the word and the Spirit, are in direct warfare with Satan. We are on the spiritual battlefield. We are in conflict with our fallen nature (our flesh), the world, and the Devil. The Devil doesn't bothered being directly in conflict with churchians and their leaders and educators because they are already doing everything the Devil wants them to do. It is God's regenerated elect who get noticed on the spiritual battlefield.


A Nabeel Qureshi doctrine

Let's propose a Nabeel Qureshi doctrine. Prayer to God for healing must be private. It can be a group or an individual, but it has to be private. I.e. not published or broadcast by any means. Obviously especially if the person in question is famous or even a minor celebrity of some sort. For these reasons.

(I can imagine all kinds of pushback to such a proposal, even legitimate pushback. I understand the faith can move mountains aspect of this. I still just think it should be private between the person and God. Otherwise it's: "Well, God, what are you going to do? The ball's in your court now. Are you going to heal this person or not?" That's not oversimplifying it.)


Do people with Satan-defiled bloodlines look worse than white people?

Do people with Satan-defiled bloodlines look worse than white people? The answer is no. People with Satan-defiled bloodlines (see posts here and here) don't look worse than white (i.e. still Adamic) people. It's even implied somewhere in the Bible that non-white people will often be better looking, more sexually attractive than white people. This is because non-whites have degrees of mixture of angelic blood. Angelic blood mixed with human blood can create monstrous hybrids, but it can also - in more diluted amounts - create attractive looks, in an earthly, sensual sense.

As for white - Adamic - people (i.e. humans who have blood that escaped mixture with fallen angels, to a basic degree anyway) we are far from the Garden, and a lot of devolution has occurred. A lot of sickness. A lot of wear and tear in the DNA and in environmental conditions (because remember nature fell along with humanity). Whites are looking pretty haggard at this point.

Yes, this all sounds weird, crazy, racist! and everything else that is currently bad in the politically-correct universe of discourse. That doesn't make it untrue.

If you're savvy you'll see how this paradigm, this way of seeing humanity, justifies things like respect for the white race. People of color must have respect for the white race because it is still their race. We all came from Adam and Eve. If you are in a body defiled by Satan you still must bow your knee to the King. To your Creator. And in all that recognition of your situation you would naturally have a jealous motive to protect whites as the remnant of God's people unmixed with fallen rebellious angels. Because it is in the white people groups that the memory of God and the traditions of God's people are kept alive. This is why the Devil wants to destroy the last remaining remnant of God's original people. Satan wants to cultivate resentment (radicalize) non-whites against whites.

If you are non-white it is in your eternal interest to ask your Creator for salvation and to protect His creation from further defilement by Satan and his army of fallen angels and radicalized fallen man. (See this post on the three mountains of the Bible.)

ADDENDUM: I hesitated to write this in the body of the above post, but I think I should because it is a loose thread. Question: why do non-whites resemble animals? Monkeys (Asians used to be called yellow monkeys in a different era) and apes (great apes like gorillas and lesser apes like chimpanzees)? Blacks obviously resemble apes, and they know it. Let's not be politically-correct. Why is this? It's because when angels mix with humans it effects the structure of the soul of the human. This is not anything that regeneration by the Holy Spirit and the Living Word can't correct (when a person becomes born again), yet it does effect the physical nature of that person. This happens because the human soul has to be degraded, i.e. go down a rung, as a result of such unnatural mixture (despite the mixture even being with an angel). The unnatural act causes degradation of God's original creation. That means the human soul becomes more in the realm of the kind of soul animals have. And whatever animal looks most like a human being is what the degraded, hybrid human being is going to most resemble. I.e. monkeys and apes.

ADDENDUM II: When individuals who belong to God and are on that path from early youth come into contact with the beauty of non-white, i.e. mixed blood, humanity it can be a comedy layered on a tragedy. Drawn towards the beauty, the sexuality, yet it's a forbidden fruit. The youth obviously won't know what is going on. Different camps. This might be a rare drama, yet it also might not be.
