Jesus, CRT, and Titles

Let’s talk about Jesus, prayer breakfasts, and awards.

I was ranting about this in my car just five minutes ago, so that’s always a good sign that there’s something that I want to passionately write about.

Let’s begin with Tucker Carlson.

It’s time for Tucker Carlson to put his job on the line.

It’s not enough for Tucker Carlson to point out all the shenanigans and misdeeds that are going in our country.

It’s time for Tucker Carlson to not only call out who the people are who are responsible for prosecuting stupidity but to tell us where they went to school.

He never does that.

Apparently he thinks it’s not important.

It is important.

Tucker Carlson has called out General Mark Milley, and he is called called out Admiral Michael Gilday.

That’s good, but he stops short.

He doesn’t tell you where they went to school.

That is important.

Since Tucker Carlson will not tell you, I will tell you. Mark Milley attended Princeton and Columbia.

Michael Gilday attended Harvard.

It’s important for you to know that so that you can see which cabal is promoting these crazy movements in the United States.

The latest crazy movement is of course CRT – Critical Race Theory.

Both of these military men, Milley and Gilday, endorse this theory.

It’s not surprising that they attended the Ivy League.

It is the Ivy League led by Harvard University that is responsible for prosecuting this nutty theory.

The real purpose of CRT is to prosecute a rigid Marxist society upon the people of the United States. Marxism of course is in practice crony capitalism, aka corporate socialism, aka fascism, aka neo-feudalusm.

If I have told you once, I have told you one million times that Harvard is not our friend. Harvard is our enemy. Harvard is a mole of the British aristocracy and the malignant elitism they embrace.

It’s not possible to have a decent republic with Harvard University acting as an alien agent that works against us.

Harvard loves titles, awards, Nobel prizes, Pulitzer prizes and Rhodes scholarships.

Boy, does Harvard love Rhodes scholarships.

These dog biscuits enhance the appearance of infallibility of the Harvard graduate. It’s a way of re-creating the British aristocracy here in the United States of America.

Harvard also leads the Ivy League which controls the CIA which is a dirty trickster to us here in America and to citizens around the world.

These people who come from Harvard and the Ivy League who prosecute unworkable theories need to be called out.

Tucker Carlson stops short.

Why does he stop short? Is he just another agent of the Empire?

You need to know where these leaders went to school.

Of course, Tucker Carlson isn’t the only host who fails to reveal the intellectual origins of these people. Nearly every one of our prominent conservative broad broadcasters also fail to call these people out. Charlie Kirk tried to blame Critical Race Theory on Rutgers University.

That’s a laugh.

Another individual who always stopped short and who always seemed to support the establishment when push came to shove was Rush Fraud-Baugh.

Don’t you find it surprising that Rush Limbaugh who positioned himself against the political class, near the end of his life accepted that ridiculous Presidential Medal of Freedom from the political class?

I don’t. Rush Limbaugh was firmly in the fold of the establishment. He was just another tool of the elites. They wouldn’t have allowed him to gain so much influence unless he had been.

That he accepted that Presidential Medal of Freedom is proof that he bought into the Empire’s scam.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is one of the dog biscuits of empire. It’s what the Empire uses to rope people into their malignant game plan.

Another individual who refuses to renounce or expose the true malignancy is Chris Hedges. Chris has done good in exposing the corporate malignancy that is destroying America, yet at the same time he allows people to promote his Harvard pedegree and his Pulitzer Prize.

If Chris Hedges were truly serious, he would renounce his Harvard degree and his Pulitzer Prize.

Chris Hedges should know better because he attended divinity school.

Let’s ask a simple question: would Jesus accept a Presidential Medal of Freedom? Would Jesus accept a Pulitzer Prize? Would Jesus conduct a prayer breakfast for our politicians much as our celebrity preachers rush to Washington DC to genuflect before the politicians and deliver a prayer breakfast.

Would Jesus sanctify and bless war?

No he would not. Jesus very specifically told his followers to render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and to render unto him what was his. What Jesus was saying is that there are two separate kingdoms and they are mutually exclusive.

Jesus understood full well the evil of Rome.

He lived in it; he didn’t have to read about it.

He didn’t need to go read a book by Mary Beard like the rest of us.

It was Christianity that defeated Rome. Christianity accomplished what no standing army could. Christianity involves the renunciation of titles, prizes, and elitism itself.

Rome was a disgusting, evil, brutal empire that was focused on power, money, and riches. The only way to defeat it was to walk away from it.

Would Jesus expose Mark Millie and Michael Gilday for the misguided elitists that they are?

Would Jesus point out the underlying institutions behind their thinking?

You bet your ass he would.

Sincerely,

Christ, Harvard and Elitism

Elitism is a malignant virus which has afflicted humanity for thousands of years.

It is a virus for more vicious than the coronavirus or the Ebola virus.

Not only is it a virus that has killed far more people and done far more damage than these other more well-known viruses, it is a virus that Moderna, Pfizer and our so-called elite schools at Harvard and MIT seem unwilling to combat.

These institutions indeed nurture and help the virus to progress.

One only needs to look at their graduates to see that this is so.

They speak the noble thoughts of inclusion, knowledge and diversity, but in practice they promote an elite brand of exclusion and wealth accumulation.

These schools are where the wealthy elite send their children to consolidate their empire.

Their graduates are afflicted with the virus of elitism.

No institution is more afflicted than Harvard University which has proclaimed itself as the new Emperor on Earth.

Our media, controlled by Harvard, sings the Psalms of Harvard and the Harvard graduate.

In this manner the virus is spread to the masses.

This is not a good thing, for this virus is a Christianity killer.

Christianity was invented by Jesus to defeat elitism.

When Jesus walked on the planet, Rome was the main guy, the head guy, the big guy, the big cheese.

It was a very cruel world.

It was a cruel world because the Romans too were afflicted with elitism.

They had sequestered themselves off into groups of haves and have-nots, and the haves ruled with brutality.

Focus on money and possessions was the order of the day. Slavery existed without shame. If you committed an offense against the elites, you might get thrown off the Tarpeian Rock.

The purpose of war was not to defend Rome but to steal someone else’s possessions and subjugate them.

That’s how the rich got rich.

Life for the Jews wasn’t much better.

The virus of elitism didn’t discriminate. The Jews had their hierarchies also.

What Jesus discovered was that elitism couldn’t be conquered as long as the people in charge, the top dogs, were able to dictate laws and policy based upon what they, the elites, deciphered as God’s will.

Anytime any regular person suggested a change that might help the people, the elites were able to intervene and say that God would not approve.

The elites told people that they, the elites, were the official interpreters of God.

They had set up their religious ceremonies so that they would sit in the first row of the temple or, if not that, then sitting above the other members of the temple looking down upon the people.

The elites had the best houses and the finest clothes. They ate the finest foods.

The elites also owned the priest who was one of their kind.

They even owned people who could go into the crowds and whisper false information of their own greatness and false rumors about people who opposed them.

Jesus noted that many rebels over the years had tried to defeat the elites either through force or persuasion but had been unable to do so.

The problem was that the people had been beaten down spiritually and programmed through fear to believe in the supremacy of the elites.

To combat this, Jesus understood that there could be no intercessor between God and man. As long as the elites could interpret God and set themselves up as the official interpreters of God, the elites could then control the people.

So Jesus decided that God must walk on earth in another form, to stand beside, and to hold the hand of each individual person.

Not only must God stand beside each individual, God must reside within that individual.

In this manner no other man could stand between God and man.

This God on earth would have to articulate clear principles that all men could understand, stories that were simple enough for everyone to grasp.

These principles had to express ideas that worked against elitism.

Stories such as Jesus refusing a crown were designed to instruct man to reject seduction by bling, awards and titles.

Jesus understood how important titles and crowns were to the rulers.

The story of the poor woman who had a greater chance of entering the Kingdom of God by virtue of having given a greater portion of her wealth as an offering is designed to minimize the importance of wealth accumulation.

Jesus understood how important money and the size of the stash were to the rulers.

The story of rendering unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto God what is God’s is designed to teach man that there is no commingling between the world of Caesar and the Kingdom of God. You can live in one or you can live in the other, but not in both at the same time with the attendant conclusion that how much time you spend in each determines what your outcome will be.

And so Jesus wrote down these principles, and others, and that is what we see in Christianity today.

Christianity is not solely the concept of a warm glowing afterlife.

Christianity is a set of basic economic principles that work to defeat elitism.

And that is why every elitist hierarchical society that man has known for the past 2000 years has tried to defeat or co-opt Christianity.

That is why Harvard University and the Ivy League try to defeat Christianity.

That is why our modern media tries to defeat Christianity.

That is why our federal government tries to defeat Christianity.

That’s why Hollywood commingles Christianity with the occult in their exorcist movies.

That’s why academia is conning Americans to jettison BC and AD in favor of BCE and CE.

They want Christ to be a speedbump in history. Keep moving, nothing to see here.

Elitism has gripped our so-called elite schools and institutions. That’s why people refer to them as elite schools.

Duh.

There is no question about it.

Elitism is a vicious virus which is afflicting modern America, the modern world, just as it afflicted Rome 2,000 years ago.

There exists a tool to defeat it, but that tool, Christianity, is useless if man chooses not to employ it.

Instead, people subject themselves to the lies and the programming of a main stream media that Harvard University controls.

Harvard sends its emissaries into every local community to recruit smart boys and girls to join its empire.

Get them while their young is Harvard’s credo.

Harvard’s goal is Rome’s goal: To steal your talent and use it against you.

Harvard positions itself on every street corner in our main stream media so as to regale the virtues of the Harvard graduate.

That is why you see regular stories about the Hasty Pudding Club.

That is why the New York Times reports the mundane wedding and baby announcements of Harvard graduates.

This is why Hollywood movies position every genius as a Harvard graduate.

This is why it is national news when a celebrity visits Harvard.

This is why every scientific discovery that Harvard develops or ventures into is reported in the press.

This program of indoctrination is designed to cement the elite authority of the Harvard-Ivy League graduate in our society.

And it’s working.

This is why you see the majority of the major cities in the state of Texas now controlled by Harvard and its allies.

This is why parents and educators mistakenly browbeat their children to get into Harvard.

This is why so many Harvard graduates are elected into the Senate.

This is why so many Harvard graduates are elevated into cabinet positions in the White House.

It’s elitism.

It’s a vicious virus that will kill the United States of America and the world.

There will be no technological advancements beyond the ordinary for the next 1,500 years if Harvard is allowed to cement its elitism.

You will be able to come back in 1,000 years and fit into society without problem.

Elitism stifles creativity.

Elitism destroys original thought.

Only orthodoxy is permitted when the organism is afflicted with the virus of elitism.

As Harvard grows in strength, you will grow weaker.

You will become impoverished.

You will become more sick.

In time, Harvard, afflicted by the vicious virus of elitism, will kill you.

Sincerely,

The Right Books

You can have in your library all the books in the world, but if you don’t have the right book, and you don’t read it and pay heed to it, it’s not going to do you any good.

Creighton University is a school that they themselves claim is committed to Jesuit values. I’m pretty sure that means the values of Jesus, eh?

Recently, a coach named Greg McDermott of Creighton University, supposedly a Christian university, told his basketball players during a game to “stay on the plantation” when it came to playing the game.

What he meant to say was that they should stay focused. Any reasonable person understands this.

A similar expression might be used with the word reservation as in, “I don’t want anybody straying off the reservation here.”

Of course, even the word reservation would be offensive to the “woke” crowd who, of course, took umbrage against the word plantation.

The last time I checked Greg MCDermott was not a slave owner.

Nevertheless, he was punished for his transgressions by Creighton University which considers itself Christian.

Is this university Christian? Do they believe in forgiveness?

Or is this just a “Christian In Name Only” university that has a big library with a lot of books.

Is the Bible in that library? Or is the Bible now considered offensive to the “woke” crowd.

It’s important to know.

Our country is in deep trouble.

When we have to suspend a coach because he uses a common expression to express a point to his players and that expression is subsequently deemed racist then we have a problem.

Forget about the coach’s intent.

Forget about slavery ending 160 years ago.

What’s most important is that the coach be tried in a kangaroo court and then punished.

What’s sad about this affair is that the coach went along with the punishment.

The coach didn’t have the courage to stand up to this lunacy.

The coach shouldn’t be punished because he used the word plantation, he should be punished because he didn’t stand up to those people who wanted to fire him for using the word plantation.

His use of the word was innocent. No harm was intended.

The coach is a coward.

He’s as much a coward as these other celebrities who immediately apologize when there is no need to apologize.

No white person needs to apologize for slavery.

No white person needs to apologize for anything that was done 160 years ago, or 250 years ago, or 500 years ago, or 1000 years ago.

Likewise the black man need not apologize for the slavery that the Egyptians engaged in thousands of years ago.

Nor must any black man apologize for the crimes of any black man in the past.

What purpose do you these apologies and undeserved suspensions serve anyway?

They only serve to yield authority and power to an elite class.

No social good can come from these apologies and punishments.

It is tolerance and forgiveness that will save American society.

The strength of a nation can only come about when people are unified in a common purpose.

Dredging up old grievances from the past does not accomplish that end.

People must move beyond their personal axes to grind.

The greater good is to let them go, for there is a bigger enemy than ourselves.

The enemies are our leaders who are pitting the people against each other for their own benefit.

This is purposeful, and it is malignant.

It is also systemic.

Who are the perpetrators?

At the top, of course, is Harvard University.

Critical race theory came out of Harvard.

Harvard is driving this focus on race.

Harvard is the straw that stirs the drink.

Harvard is an anti-American, anti-Christian university that worships power and money.

They are pagan to the core.

Their commencement ceremony displays Harvard’s sensibilities quite prominently.

There the Fuhrer blesses the new graduates from the Altar of Zeus.

There at Tercentenary Theatre fly the crimson flags of the Third Reich.

There Harvard reveals its true monarchical self.

It’s $40 billion endowment serves as the thermometer of power which Harvard worships.

As do their multiple museums and collections including the wrongheaded Widener library which accumulates solely for the purpose of accumulating.

It’s a contest of scalar power.

See’s Harvard’s erection.

Harvard’s cock is biggest.

18 million volumes and counting the Widener library possesses.

There is no shame there.

Nor is there any enlightenment, for it is the quality of the literature that counts, not its quantity.

Is there a Bible in the Widener library?

Or have the “woke” people at Harvard removed it?

As it turns out, there is a Bible in the Widener library. It’s an original Gutenberg Bible befitting of Harvard’s supremacy.

Only the best will do at Harvard.

But the Bible there has lost its utility. It sits impotent in a glass box, just another treasure that pagan Harvard has looted from the public.

Locked away, it is symbolic of Harvard’s goal to seal off Christianity from humanity.

Jesus Christ, says Harvard, keep moving. Nothing to see here. Just a speed bump in history.

Forgiveness and tolerance, says Harvard; forget about it.

Yes, it is Harvard that sets the tone for this culture divisiveness.

Cui bono?

Harvard.

No good will come of this to anyone save Harvard.

They will split Americans apart; they will divide and conquer.

They will rapaciously steal the heritage of the people and lock it up for themselves as they did with the Gutenberg Bible.

They may even charge you for a glimpse of it.

Only one man stands in their way, the man who defeated Rome, the man who has defeated every tyranny since.

Jesus Christ.

Tolerance, forgiveness, forbearance.

These are the strength of the nation, not an 18 million volume library.

Sincerely,

What Does Christ Mean?

It’s important on this Christmas day to remember what it means to be a Christian.

What is Christianity?

Who was Christ?

What kind of person was he?

Contrary to what many false leaders of Christianity may think, Christ is rooted in individualism.

Christ was not a communist.

Christ was not a follower.

Christ was a rebel.

As were our Founding Fathers who rooted their rebellion in Christ’s emancipatory message.

Christianity has few rules beyond charity or treating others as you would want to be treated.

It’s an easy religion to join, but not so easy to follow.

Christianity concerns itself with the individual soul, not obedience to the dictates of conventional wisdom or what the pack thinks.

Christ wants to know what you as an individual are going to do with your life.

Christ does not ask you to put your finger in the air to see which way the wind is blowing.

Christ does not ask you to follow a popularity poll.

Nor does Christ ask you to follow a leader here on earth.

There is no worldly intercessor or interlocutor to God within Christianity.

Christ and the principles he espoused is your interlocutor.

His words are plain and easy to follow.

Of course, this has not prevented false prophets and false leaders from appointing themselves God’s representative here on Earth.

These leaders secretly despise Christ.

Christ put the kibosh on their racket.

The Sun King and the other divine kings and queens were such leaders.

As were the Roman Emperors before them.

As they fell other false leaders took their place.

We live in a treacherous world of evil men and women who would seek to destroy Christ’s message.

They know full well the power of Christ.

By day these modern leaders dress in suits, not robes, speak fancy words, attend church and hold prayer breakfasts.

By night, they strive to undermine the very individualism and trust that Christ’s message underscores.

Did Christ hold a prayer breakfast for Julius Caesar?

Did Christ ask his followers to go out into the world and kick ass?

Did Christ live in a walled-off development?

Did Christ separate himself from what our modern leaders call trailer park trash?

Did Christ sell out and get a lucrative contract from Caesar to provide all the chariots in Palestine?

No.

From all sides of the political spectrum these modern leaders promote collectivism. They ask and encourage Americans to turn each other in to the authorities. They discourage Americans from attending church and visiting family members. They suppress free speech on the Internet which goes against the conventional wisdom that they define. In the school system they work toward a standardized approach to learning and teaching which they will control.

Over the past seventy-five years, they destroyed the family structure by shipping jobs out to China and Southeast Asia. They promoted gambling, tattoos, vile celebrity culture and cheap gossip. In place of well-paying jobs they gave Americans Oxycontin and low paying jobs at McDonalds. Around the world they created slave labor plantations where people toil thirteen hours a day to make six bucks.

While impoverishing the average American, they enriched themselves beyond comprehension. They awarded themselves lavish salaries and stock compensation packages. Not satisfied with their mansions, yachts, private jets, sprawling ranches and sports teams, they set out to steal American’s savings, homes and now businesses.

They are the new Sun Kings.

They give each other phony awards to beguile you. Nobel prizes, Academy awards, Pulitzer Prizes and Peabody awards are false awards given by them to themselves to cement in your mind their superiority.

Yet Christ renounced a crown.

Through their media these false gods now set out to control the freedom of your mind with their political correctness.

They are essential, of course, they tell you.

The ills of the world can only be solved by them, they say.

Their phony pedigrees at so-called prestigious schools often bought by bribes and family legacy confirm it.

The future appears bleak.

Conformity is demanded. All must submit.

The secular god has spoken, and so it is now appropriate to ask what will you do.

Christ wants to know.

Sincerely,

How to Fix America in 10 Easy Steps

1. Restore order. Maintaining order is the number one function of government. This is something that Donald Trump has failed to do. It’s embarrassing for me to say that as a conservative. When we have massive, systemic riots in the nation, the President must take command. To do that boots are needed on the ground, and plenty of them. Where will we get those boots? That leads me to point number two.

2. Shut down the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq in their entirety. As long as we are over there, we will never be able over here to fix our problems over here. We don’t belong over there in the first place. Defending democracy begins here at home in the United States of America. The troops can be put to good use here. Of course, discipline and order is only part of the equation. Those are the sticks. To be successful, you need carrots. And that leads me to point number three.

3. Bring the manufacturing back jobs back to the inner city so that poor folk here have real jobs that pay real money. That can’t happen as long as exploitation is our national economic policy. Shut down the sweat shops in Indonesia and Southeast Asia. Poor folk can be making good money making shoes and apparel and all sorts of textiles here in the United States of America. How do we do that? Remember those troops that we brought back from Afghanistan and Iraq. Some are going down to the docks to make sure that not one Nike shoe enters the United States of America from overseas. Too bad, Nike shoes. Too bad, Lebron “Shameless” James. Your golden cash cow is cooked. And that leads me to point four.

4. It’s time to shut down the power of Corporate America and their well-paid celebrity shills. We do that by taking these large corporations and busting them up with a sledgehammer.. That’s what Ida Tarbell did to John D. Rockefeller, and it’s high time we took a page out of her book. We must tolerate no more of these international corporations that only serve to polarize wealth and emaciate the American people. Globalism and the global stars can take a hike. So can the CIA, the thug agency of the wealthy elite. It’s nothing more than a secret police force that engages in dirty tricks against ordinary citizens foreign and domestic.

5. When we get rid of the big corporations, we can jettison these international superstars like LeBron James also. Shameless James works against the black man. He incites riots in the inner cities that destroy black lives’ neighborhoods.

And why is that? Because the name of the game is race and race hustling in America today. Promoting class warfare serves the government and its bedfellow, Corporate America, well. It keeps the black man focused on rage which keeps him from beating his sword into a plowshare. It also ensures chaos in the black community that will ensure the production of black inmates necessary to justify the other cash cow from which Corporate America profits handsomely – the prison system.

All the while, Shameless James makes a fortune by shilling for Nike shoes. When he’s not pitching for Nike shoes he’s investing in Blaze Pizza shops that sell overpriced pizzas to white people in white neighborhoods. Where are the Blaze Pizza shops in Compton, East St. Louis and Algiers? They don’t exist. But you don’t know that, because the main stream media is controlled by a few corporate pigs. And that leaves me to point six.

6. Break up the oversized media companies. Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter have too much power in the United States. There is no true diversity of opinion. These oversize media companies are really just agents of the federal government. We need diversity of opinion. Moreover we need truth tellers whose principal client is not their ten-million dollar salary. Someone who makes that much money is liable to say anything. Presenters and hosts must not be beholden to a corporation, but to the truth wherever it lies.

7. We must put a premium on honor and process again. We have become a Shark Tank nation focused on making money at any cost as if the size of one’s bank account was the sum total of a man or woman. It is not. A country focused and consumed by money, possessions and toys cannot survive. No system, I repeat, no system can hold up under greed. Healthcare is collapsing because of greed. Rapacious Palo Alto giants are rushing to substitute a human-based care model with a machine-based algorithm. The former relies on intelligence and compassion; the latter relies on AI and money-making efficiency. Which leads me to point eight.

8. We are human beings, and we should remain human beings. We are not machines. Yet we have Elon Musk and Neuralink that have the desire to make us into machines. It’s all part of trans-humanism, don’t you know? If we go down this route, will we be better off? What will we lose? Can our fragile bodies of carbon meet the demands of the mathematicians of the Third Reich of whom our Palo Alto overlords find themselves enamored. Transforming and perfecting humanity is their goal, and that is the vision that they have prosecuted in the United States for many decades now. It must be firmly repulsed.

9. Overthrowing the Fuhrer’s mathematical vision of the future, his dream of a master race begins in our elementary schools where we currently teach children that failure is not an option and that there are no excuses. This is antithetical to Christianity and it must be rejected. Christianity not only preaches that failure is an option, but that it must be an option; for if it is not an option, then there is no need for forgiveness. Never once have I read in the New Testament where Jesus walked up to a sinner and said: No excuses.

No excuses mandates a perfection of humanity that can not be attained.

Other pernicious methodologies must be jettisoned as well. The standardized test and the focus on mathematical scores serve to score and stratify people. People are thus perceived as better because their GPA and SAT scores sit above the 90th percentile. This engenders a sense of entitlement amongst the more intellectually gifted. The so-called best and brightest then set out to fulfill the false prophecy instilled in them that they are destined for great power, wealth and fame.

That people are better and more valuable than others because they were gifted with higher intelligence is antithetical to Christian thought.

10. This does not necessarily mean that Christianity must be the official religion in the United States of America. What it does mean is that Christianity must be a viable participant in the affairs of the United States of America. What we are seeing today are the fruits of a secular world devoid of any religion at all. It does not work.

If I had to come up with five things we could do to take down the New World Order, I would recommend the following.  Of course, I could hardly do better than the doctrine of Jesus Christ which was responsible for taking down the Roman Empire  – the original New World Order.

 

  1. Reaffirm individualism.  Walk away from collectivism as a panacea to solving the problems in your life.  Do not blame others or other groups for your problems.  Accept personal responsibility.
  2. Accept tolerance and forgiveness as a way of life.  Be charitable to other’s reasonable failings and try to give people a second chance. Refuse to follow the media’s call for someone to be fired for every faux pas that they find objectionable.
  3. Reject the maniacal love of money as a solution to your personal problems.
  4. Ask the clergy to stay in their lane.  Implore them to not enter the house of the politico but to ask the politico to enter the house of God.  Beg the clergy to stick to what they were trained to do:  To mend the wounded soul.
  5. Reject elitism and its ideology.  Reject the notion of the best and brightest.  Accept that great power rests within all peoples.   Reject the false ornaments, titles, awards, crowns and medals that elitism confers to connote superiority.

1954 AD

1954 AD.

That’s the year I was born.

I reject the term CE.

It’s a small point, I suppose, but small points often yield big results.

I’m speaking about the use of BCE and CE  which “enlightened” elites are now promoting instead of the traditional BC and AD.

Why are our leaders, raised and educated in a Christian environment, not speaking out against this historical revisionism?

Did Christ really desire us to be so tolerant that we would abandon acknowledgment of his existence?

What a bunch of suckers.

I’ve got to hand it to the Muslims; do you think the leaders in Iran will give up their Islamic calendar?  

Not in a million years.  Only fake Christian leaders would do that.  “Yep, come right in.  We’re the Christian suckers. We’ll abandon Jesus if you let us fly on Air Force One.”

I can see them now pushing their chips into the center of the pot.  “All in,” as they say in Vegas. “We’re all in on the narrative of Christian oppression.”

It’s a good thing they weren’t in the Garden of Gethsemane.  Hell, they would have picked up Jesus in a limo and given him a first class ride to the police station.

How can these fools be so shortsighted and negligent?

Are you surprised?

I’m not.

The elites prefer that Jesus Christ be an inconvenience, a speed bump in history.

They prefer it so because Jesus was an emancipator of the people from all elites who always claim to be the spokesman for God no matter how they view God.

Jesus stands as your friend, standing right beside you, with no opening, no gap into which an elite can wedge his way in to control you, to rob from you.

Of course, the elites try anyway, by convincing your pastor to support war.  The problem, though, is that Jesus spoke; and when Jesus spoke, he didn’t ask anyone to go out and kick ass.

This is the principal reason why Jesus Christ has been despised by the elites since the day his doctrine was articulated.

Oh, they’ve tried every trick in the book to get rid of him.

They’ve taken the Bible out of the school; they’ve taken down Nativity scenes in front of government buildings; they’ve even tried renaming cities.

This latest nonsense – changing AD to CE – is just another way to minimize his importance.

To them, Jesus is the problem.  So what they want you to do is forget hm.

Jesus never happened, you see.

He was never here.

Is that how you view Jesus?

Was Jesus just some guy who happened to walk along and say a few wise things?

Was Jesus Christ a flash in the pan?

Can we now just get over “this Christ thing” and get on to business?

Actually, no, we can’t do that.

We can’t do that because Jesus Christ was not just some guy who came along and said a few wise things.

Jesus Christ articulated an entirely new way of looking at the world and so transformed it.

That’s why BC and AD came into being. People didn’t just use it for the hell of it. They started using it because there was a dramatic change in how people began to view each other.

People’s lives improved. Their lives improved not just because Jesus was a philosopher and articulator of a better way of living.  Jesus was also an economist. By speaking directly to you, he pushed out the Machiavellian elite who have always used God to justify their plundering of you.

To honor Jesus, people accepted the terms BC and AD.  They felt his contribution was important to everyone, not just Christians.

The significance of these terms is even more glaring by how the world regresses when people walk away from the principles of Jesus Christ.

And it matters not whether you are a Jew or a Muslim.  The philosophy exists whether you deny it or not.  Indeed, many people of many faiths are Christians without knowing so.

Walking away from terms such as BC and AD, and what they stand for, will only further cement the necessity of using them.

A few years ago the communists in the Soviet Union changed the name of St. Petersburg to Leningrad.

Leningrad is now call St. Petersburg again.  The name has reverted because people do still recognize the importance of Christianity in their lives.

They may not always practice Christianity, but they see it as a necessity.

Jesus did change the world.

He was here.

Jesus and Epiphany

Two thousand years ago Christianity arose.

We can debate how it arose, but it did arise.

It arose because Judaism was not meeting the needs of the people.

Nobody sat around two thousand years ago and said, “Hey, I think I will invent a religion that will destroy Judaism just for the hell of it.”

No, Christianity arose to fill a need.

A bright Jewish boy, let’s call him Jesus, loved the Jewish faith. He studied it religiously. He was very gung ho. He may have even been the best student at his yeshiva.  

Then one day he left the school and was struck by a bolt of lightning.

Well, it wasn’t really a bolt of lightning; it was an epiphany.

He said to himself, “If my religion is so perfect, why is there so much disparity in wealth?”

Prior to this epiphany he had been very happy with Judaism. He thought it to be the perfect religion. He knew that if he followed every rule the rabbi gave him, he would advance to the top.

He had been excited to learn these rules and truths.

But then came reality.

He walked into the misery of humanity.

There was no denying it.

In short order, he concluded that the reason why this disparity of wealth existed was because human beings are imperfect. Not everyone is endowed with the same skills and strengths.

This disparity of wealth accompanying a “perfect religion” confused and disturbed Jesus, and so he traveled the world as it was known to him to discover an answer, an antidote.

What he finally concluded was that Judaism was paradoxically an imperfect religion because it was a perfect religion.

His solution was to create or add imperfection to Judaism so that it would match the imperfection of the real world.

He concluded that if people followed what he preached their economic lot would improve.

He saw himself first and foremost as an economist.

And so he articulated many phrases to convey his beliefs. These phrases included things like:

The first shall be last, and the last shall be first.

You are not saved by works alone.

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

Man does not live by bread alone.

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

He wrote these things down in a book which you know  today as the gospels.

And then he died.

But he did not rise from the dead as he wrote in his gospels.  The rising from the dead was a metaphor to represent the transformation his preachings would have on your life.

He was hoping that people might see the economic practicality in following his preachings.

He knew that if people followed his advice their economic lot would improve.

But the world is not a perfect place.

Man has free will to do as he pleases.

Man has free will to become seduced by money, greed and naughtiness.

Which is where we stand today.

Christian Goals

Christianity‘s vision is often misguided.

Christianity is about your individual salvation.

Christ wants to know what you are going to do as an individual.

Christ wants to know how you are going to treat other people.

What Christ doesn’t care about is what we are going to do in the Middle East or the Ukraine.

There is no “we” in Christ’s message.

Christ speaks to you as an individual.

Yes, I understand the reference to “our” and “us” in the Lord’s Prayer. Many pastors and theologians have seized upon these words as tools to marshal Christians toward collective action.

Many pastors believe that Christ does not exist without the Church.

I disagree.

Christ was not a commie. These words “us’ and “our” in the Lord’s Prayer are literary tools not calls for collective action.

A group is not a person and thus has no sense of shame or guilt. Without a sense of shame or guilt, a group has no need for God or God’s forgiveness and so acts accordingly.

Now, in today’s modern world we have many preachers who take Christ’s message and evangelize for war.

I must’ve missed the lesson in my Sunday school class where Jesus implored for us to go out into the world and beat the shit out of people.

These ministers work with the CIA and rev their followers up for war.

They cozy up to politicians at prayer breakfasts.

They agitate for war.

As if we haven’t had one for the past 15 years.

The basis for this warmongering is Christ’s missionary zeal.

The logic, I suppose, is that because Christ preached while walking from town to town we are to do the same.

How can we sit back and do nothing, zealots ask, as they point to “primitive” cultures.

Look at the poverty, they scream.

And their backward way of life, they add.

The misery is heartbreaking, and something must be done.

Christianity is then viewed as a fighting religion.  

The goal then is to force our better, superiorChristian way of life upon the barbarian beast.

And what this has led to is nonstop American warmongering overseas for over one hundred years.

The path we take is false.

Christians spread their faith best by practicing it as individuals, not by cramming their faith down the throats of the nonbeliever with an army.

There is no “we” in Christianity.

By joining a group, even a Christian one, I forfeit my morality to the group leader who has been seduced and excited by Corporate America through private visits with the President, flights on Air Force One, and the other dog biscuits of Empire.

But if I turn away and ask what I should do as an individual, then the solution reveals itself. The group leader loses power and our leadership unable to sell war decides to work with other nations rather than exploit them.

As Jesus said, “You are the light of the world.”

True Christianity thus reveals itself.
