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.

What is Antisemitism?

What does it mean to be antisemitic.  There are various definitions, and there is some controversy afoot these days as to what constitutes antisemitism.

Let’s leave criticism of Israel out of the discussion for now.  This is a bogus addition that has no merit.

One popular definition says that you are antisemitic if you do harm to Jews because they are Jews.

This seems fair at first glance, but is this inclusive enough?

What about those who do harm directly to Jews without intending to do harm?   Is that antisemitic?

I would argue that it is.

What about those who do harm to Jews indirectly by creating or encouraging a climate of hatred toward Jews without intending to specifically harm Jews (judging by their own words)?

This would include people like those Nazis who claim they never gave an order to harm Jews.  Yes, one could argue, but you fostered or encouraged a climate that led to violence against Jews.

This would also include Adolf Hilter for those people who say, “The Fuhrer did not know,” or “The Fuhrer did not intend for things to turn out this way.”

Irrelevant.

So, antisemitism, accepting what I say, is more broad than doing harm to Jews because they are Jews. That definition is more appropriate in defining volitional discrimination.

Antisemitism is when you do harm to Jews.

But wait a minute.  Isn’t Israel Jewish?  So isn’t harm to Israel then antisemitic?

Good point.

First, Israel is only Jewish when it wants to be.  When it wants to promote itself as a multicultural society it proudly points to Arab MKs.  

Second, Israel currently abides by the precepts of Judaism to the same degree that the US abides by the precepts of Christianity which is to say dead zero.

Third, is a nation, a corporate entity of sorts, a person? 

No.

To say more is to say less. 

Given what I have spoken to thus far, is Israel’s current leadership antisemitic?

Yes, and they have been for some time.

The Likud Party and their radical fellow travelers have created a culture of hatred against Palestinians that has engendered horrible living conditions for the inhabitants of Gaza and the West Bank.

This dire situation has resulted in the BDS movement and enmity toward Jews around the world.

It does not matter whether Bibi intended for things to turn out this way.

It has.

And now you know what Israel must do in the Middle East.  It’s as clear as daylight.

Friends and Enemies

There’s no logical reason why Jews cannot live alongside Palestinian Muslims.

They are not natural enemies.

Indeed, they are brothers.

Mohammed modeled Islam off Judaism, which helps explain why both share similar traits and customs.

Certainly they are not a threat to each other operationally.

Here is why.

Both religions are rules oriented.  To be a member means that one must obey many procedures, dictates and customs.

Learning such rules takes time and extensive acculturation.

As such, it isn’t likely that a member of one is going to abandon his religion in order to learn another which also has many rules, but different, requiring a hefty investment of time.

People are generally lazy.

It’s much more likely that a member of one of these religions will join Christianity which has few rules.

Other than accepting Christ as your savior, doing unto others as you would have others do unto you, and renouncing wealth which few Christians obey anyway, it’s a nobrainer to go from a rules-based religion to Christianity. Which many do.

You mean that’s it,asks the potential convert.   Jesus, where do I sign up?

Christianity stands as the true threat to all rules-based religions which is why Christians  have been traditionally persecuted all over the world in different eras by many religions including pagan religions.

Rome gets bragging rights.

Contributing to this threat is Christianity’s missionary zeal, its commitment to spreading its good news, its fervor to convert everyone to Christianity.

The stands in contrast to the Jews who have no interest in converting anyone unless the person applies and then jumps through many hoops.

It is this reluctance to proselytize and convert which enables the Jews to live side-by-side amongst Muslims in peace.

Hence Judaism does not serve as a drain on Islam.

Nor is Islam a threat to Judaism.  Even though Islam seeks to convert, Judaism is not viewed as low hanging fruit or prime meat because of its low volume and non-desire to convert Muslims.

So what results is a symbiotic relationship between Jews and Muslims. 

Which explains why the Jews followed the Muslims when the Christians kicked the Muslims out of Spain.

And why Jews, barring a major shift in the religion, will always prefer Muslims over Christians.

Close examination will reveal great working relationships between Jews and Muslims spanning centuries.

What you see going on in Israel and Palestine today is an aberration fueled by greed, greed fueled by another religion which hasn’t yet defined itself as a religion but is one nonetheless.

The religion is called Corporatism and it seeks not to convert but to destroy.

It requires that you abandon your religion completely and accept its amorphous, numb doctrine of consumption and whatever bullshit it’s selling.

But it has no empathy and desire to understand your plight. Having no mind,  it runs roughshod over those standing in its way.

It identifies an enemy and takes it. It mindlessly asks its adherents to annihilate the perceived enemy.  It only requires that you obey.

There is no God of decency in it.

Truth means nothing. Lies are its currency.

And so Jews who are not Jews supported by Christians who are not Christians – having converted to Corporatism – work together to destroy Palestinians with impunity.

Corporatism is a pernicious, malicious, and malignant religion.

It arose from the void left when people abandoned their religion.

It took the simplicity and zeal of Christianity and fused it with the obedience of Judaism plus the idea that this Earth is all that there is.

Follow me and consume all.

It is the doctrine of a cancer cell.

It takes no prisoners.

It will destroy Jews and Muslims alike.  

Christians too.
