It’s hard to believe that it’s been a full year since “Rules for Radical Christians: A Practical Primer for Defeating Radical Liberals at Their Own Game” was published and this blog was begun. It has also been quite a memorable year with Covid-19 released and a world wide pandemic following. As a result, all normal manners of advertising and marketing stopped except for this blog. Book signings have been cancelled. Library visits have been cancelled. And large gatherings like church visits are also out of the question. So God is in charge of marketing along with “word of mouth” advertising from people who have been bold enough to purchase the book.
In light of the pandemic, here are some spiritual insights of the past year. We’ve all been told to adjust to this “New Normal.” But the “New Normal” is not, in any way, normal. Of course I have to look at this year from a Christian point of view in answering this question: How has the “New Normal” affected the Kingdom of God?
Public and private gatherings have been severely curtailed. We’ve been forced to stay home when many do not believe the need is present. The assumption being that there is no cure for the disease and there is no information openly circulating to refute the claim by health professionals, the government, or the media. The truth has been successfully quashed in a successful disinformation campaign. In the name of profits, information about the virus that was openly and easily found at the beginning of the year is slowly being removed or buried under a ton of sites that support the government approved treatment. This is a real life replay of the movie “Contagion“ where a natural or currently available cure was discredited in favor of a vaccine. In today’s case, a drug that has existed for seventy years and also proven to be effective, is being actively discredited in favor of, (guess what?), a vaccine.
In this article from nature.com, (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41419-020-2721-8), Hydrochloroquine and Chloroquine both show beneficial results in combating Covid-19. But the beneficial results are balanced against adverse results as well in Covid-19 patients. The summary being that more studies are needed to confirm the efficacy of the drugs. However, there is very little financial reason to support spending money to confirm its benefits and determine the best manner of treatment. It has been around too long and is available and approved for use in many other health issues. Instead of using the old medication that shows promise, why not save the money and time for confirming health studies on the old by using the time and money to develop a new drug instead. The companies that succeed will have a patented and protected cash cow for many years instead.
Big pharma has inundated the internet with articles and studies that refute the efficacy of HCQ and CQ causing confusion. Liberal media that support the party line of the WHO and CDC have helped to keep us confused by reporting and supporting vaccines over any other treatment. They even go so far as to openly state that there is no cure to treat Covid-19. Any treatment that can kill the virus and mitigate its affects is a cure. But by discrediting the one and only researcher that knows the truth, they can silence all opposition to vaccine treatments. This researcher is Dr. Judy A. Mikovits who worked closely with Dr. Anthony Fauci. She is being actively discredited. Look at this link to see a dissenting opinion about the Covid-19 crisis: (https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-08-23-wikipedia-used-to-control-covid-19-narrative.html). Dissension is no longer allowed to be heard. It is simply silenced.
But what about natural ways to help us fight off Covid-19? What about the links to nutrition? Very little is being said about this. It’s called “Preventive Medicine” which in reality is less about medicine and more about good health practices. There may be evidence showing links to Covid-19 susceptibility and Vitamin-D. Look at this website for more information, (https://naturalhealthresponse.com/truth-about-covid-and-vitamin-d/).
So healthy people are being scared and kept home even though cures and prevention information is available, but becoming more and more difficult to find. I can’t make a scientific determination about the Covid-19 crisis, but spiritually, I believe we are being socially engineered to believe only one narrative. The one that pharmaceutical companies want us to believe. “There are incurable diseases.” This is not the truth according to God’s Word. Both the written Word and His revelation Word. Otherwise, this verse has to be a lie.
3 John 1: 2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
I cannot bring myself to believe that the written Word of God is a book of lies. God calls Himself the God of Truth. There is one and only one thing that God cannot do: HE CANNOT LIE. The Holy Spirit is called the Spirit of Truth. That means revelation knowledge from the Holy Spirit that tells a believer what is going on around them is also the truth. Then, when the Holy Spirit tells the same believer specific information on what to do, then those instructions are also the truth. If your God speaks to you in this much detail and has always proven to be correct, then you must be worshiping the God of Truth. We are spiritually brothers and sisters.
Let me ask you a simple question concerning the upcoming election. It doesn’t matter whether you consider yourself a conservative, a liberal, Christian or non-Christian. You see, if you believe that our current President is a liar and that is enough qualification to discredit his administration, then you should vote for a man who tells the truth. But the only man I know who never told a lie was crucified on a cross 2100 years ago and rose from the dead to ascend to heaven. The party that opposed our current President has waged a continuous four year war against one man to get him removed from office. They have used lies, innuendo, illegal investigations, and every means possible to disrupt and hinder his administration. Yet in spite of all the opposition from this party and even from within his own party, he engineered an economic resurgence that was unmatched in the last thirty years. The only thing that derailed our economy was Covid-19.
This is a man that is both arrogant and common. He is more closely like his constituents than most of his competitors. He holds the same distrust against career politicians that many of us common people. He is not perfect in any way, but neither is any of his opponents. He tried to keep his promises, but none of his fulfilled promises have been covered in any way in the news media. They hate this man just as much as his liberal opponents. Career Washington elite hate him because he can’t be bought like other men in the past. He has held true to his Christian principles, his common sentiments, and his integrity. Why would a conservative vote to support a candidate from the opposing party that is both liberal and openly criminal in their hatred against only one man?
This opposing party has rejected God. In their national convention only eight years ago, they booed God three times. Their agenda is openly Socialist, which is also Marxist and Atheist. Christianity cannot coexist with Atheist Marxism. There may be practicing and devout Christians that support this party. Even some that believe in their platform. But these people really need to look at their support from a a spiritual point of view, instead of their logic point of view. This is a party that has abandoned the rules of order. If they are Christian, then they have openly and brazenly rejected this verse:
1 Peter 2: 13, 14 “Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.”
There have been absolutely no submission from this party in the last four years. If you are a Christian who supports this party, why would you support a position or a party that is openly living in opposition to the truth? They really need to ask God, just as we do, “Who should we vote for in this election?” Then obey God instead of logic, reason, . This is how to walk in faith when it becomes time to vote for the leadership of our government.
The current President was voted in because he was NOT part of the established Washington elite. He was NOT part of the established super rich. Yes, he is wealthy, but this Presidency has done nothing to enrich his wealth as other Presidents have benefited, including the previous office holder. He is openly Christian and have supported the rule of law in reversing many Anti-Christian policies enacted in the previous administration. He has challenged foreign treaties that were openly one sided against our country. He has made no attempt to apologize for being American or Capitalist. He is openly arrogant, but has earned that right, especially in view of his victories in court, against the Congress, and against the Justice Dept. All of which were fighting against him to have him deposed in favor of his liberal opponent from the last election. He has worked to restore the ability for the common citizen to prosper and lead a quiet and peaceable life.
If you want to see what is in store for us if we elect his opponent in this election, look at what has happened in the last forty years. Have the middle class prospered or become smaller? Have wages kept up with inflation or become stagnant? Have we increased our manufacturing potential or exported our manufacturing ability around the world? Has racial injustice become a thing of the past or is it worse now than ever before? Has the income gap between the wealthy and the poor become smaller or is it the greatest in the history of our country? If you believe that the first part of each question is the truth, then we need to return to the policies of the last forty years, because that is what the Democratic Party is fighting to maintain. But if you believe that the second part of each question is the truth, then we need to maintain the policies of the current administration for at least four more years and re-elect the current President. There is no doubt in either case that when the old elite regain their power, the average American will suffer in the name of profits.
There will never be a perfect administration because both Godly and ungodly people must work together. But the experience of the last four years are proving that the ungodly will never make any attempt to work with the Godly. Even if the Godly is only Godly in name and not by action. Socialism is only pleased when all power is held by the government and no mention of God is publicly allowed by law. They seek nothing less that total power and it is painfully obvious they will not work with anyone who dares to invoke the blessings of God in their public life.
Free speech under liberals, mean the ability to say anything anti-social, anti-law, anti-God, and against authority. It does not mean the right to support Christian culture, the Rule of Law, God or lawful authority.
The Right to Assemble under liberals, mean the right to protest, organize a mob, burn businesses and terrorize law abiding citizens. It does not mean the right to evangelize, legally petition the government when a grievance needs to be addressed, support business growth and assemble groups of believers.
The Right to Bear Arms under liberals, means the only people authorized to own firearms is the government. That means the police and military. Private citizens who own firearms are criminals. It is not interpreted today as the means for private citizens to defend themselves against a totalitarian government like was in force when the Constitution and Declaration of Independence was written.
We need to pay attention to the way our understanding is being transformed. Definitions are changing in culture and attitudes are changing with the new definitions. If you are conservative, you are now part of a “Hate Group.” If you speak God’s Word, you are promoting “Hate Speech,” especially if you are vocally against the LGBT community. (By the way, you may need to reconsider being so vocally against this one group if you allow murderers, rapists, thieves, adulterers, liars or anyone else that is a sinner into your group. Singling out the LGBT community is hypocritical and definitely shows a lack of love and grace if everyone else is welcome.)
We are getting closer to the time when Jesus Christ will return. But it is not the time for Radical Christian believers to lie down and give up in our spiritual fight against those who support lawless evil. We are being silenced against an onslaught of media commentary of fear. We cannot allow fear to stop the cultural battle to maintain God’s authority in our lives. We cannot allow fear to stop us from freely speaking of the redemption Jesus Christ made available to all mankind. Covid-19 is a way to keep us silent against anyone who doesn’t want to hear about Jesus. My book was not written to make the silent majority of Christians who say they are Christian but will not live Christianity feel good about themselves. It was written to wake up the few who live their Christianity with or without the support of the vocal majority.
Are you bold enough to learn how God speaks to you? Are you bold enough to learn how to live your Christianity instead of talking about your Christianity? Are you bold enough to believe the Holy Spirit revelation from the Spirit of Truth instead of the facts and evidence of science that is being censored by the media? Are you bold enough to let a man teach you how to make Jesus your Lord in practice?
These are the alternative positions that the religious church would have you believe. God cannot speak to you, He only speaks to the clergy. Proclaiming your Christianity is enough to save you, living your proclamation is overkill. The written Word of God is the only truth, you cannot trust spiritual revelation, it could come from devil spirits. The Holy Spirit therefore cannot be trusted. It must not really be Holy. Science is the physical embodiment of truth. The media always tells the truth and looks out for the best interest of the people. Only the church and its leadership represents your Lord Jesus Christ today. Jesus works only through the clergy.
It takes a man or woman to teach another man or woman. But in the case of our spiritual walk, it takes a man or woman to introduce us to the spiritual walk with God. From there, it takes active action by the believer to build their own relationship with God. The believer has to test God’s revelation against His written Word and by its results. It is only by active obedience to God’s revelation that a believer learns to recognize God’s voice and learns to trust it implicitly. That is how to build your own spiritual walk of faith with Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. This is how conservative Christians can defeat radical Liberals at their own game. Their game is spiritual and those at the top know they are serving spiritual powers. We can only defeat spiritual powers with spiritual power.
Ephesians 6: 12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
This is the spiritual battle my book exposes. It is the same spiritual battle we are fighting against Covid-19. It is also the same spiritual battle that is trying to keep my book off physical book shelves and away from believer’s knowledge. If you’ve purchase my book, please message me with your assessment and how this book has helped your spiritual life with God and your physical life. Has it helped you with your spouse, your children, your family, your friends, your work, or your church? Has it enriched your personal life in any way? Maybe not in the way of wealth, or maybe so in the way of wealth, in any case, enrichment to me simply means getting better.
If the cost of the physical book seems high, get the e-book. It costs about the same as a good meal at McDonald’s. The physical book costs about the same as a good meal for a family at Bob Evans. In light of eternity, giving up a Bob Evans meal to learn unapologetic and brutal truth, (that’s being held in secret by religious elitism), is a small price to pay. I’ve lived on both sides of the ecclesiastical fence. I’ve served as pastor and elder, and I’ve served as the door greeter and media man in the back. I’ve walked neighborhoods and talked about Jesus to strangers, and I’ve spoken openly about Jesus from the podium. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the only hope for decency, fairness, and prosperity for everyone is to do it God’s way. I wrote my book to make it easier for anyone to learn how to do it God’s way.
It’s been a year since my book was first published. Let’s make the second year of publication better than the first. Let’s make Jesus Christ our Lord in a greater and stronger way. Happy First Anniversary. Let’s keep rebuilding our culture to return to the truth. By the way, the title of my last blog does not refer to my attitude, but the attitude of the world we all have to overcome when we attempt to witness or evangelize to others.
