The onslaught of UK etc authoritarians in the guise of liberal moderates, aim to put what remains of freedom of expression to bed and sleep. Make private or prosecution? Into the digital bin this'll be going.
There's always an unless we... but silence-about and tired apathy reigns.
TS later, will be about this. Of course, no one much looks or cares: These last-days of any intellectual lights on are passing before us. "Someone else" will resist and rage goes the thinking. Most everyone but the few beleaguered bloggers and vid-makers.
Believing and say know, The Gospel is true, the enemy (similarly so) is out to whack and wipe out what singing, waving arms unto all other brands of church-going remains.
The Mark of the Beast if re-interpreted into our times is state-sanctioned religious and political gathering. With the incentive -- tax breaks.
We're living in a -- seems slowed down -- car crash of a world. Nothing but our ability to read whatever we like is sacrosanct. If it contains something illegal and a cause to commit crime, that's different but the broad sweep-a-coming will soon cover Christ-talk. What we can and cannot read.
This is why false-flags are make or break revelation. And those who know this and insist on amping up Islamic homegrown terrorism are pushing a mad and bad error of judgement...
OK back to resolving to Christ?
(TS for the rant on 'extremism' later and this hidden in plain view shock but nor-er).
The reason we/who're into-Jesus are so unpopular, is because we're misunderstood and this primarily projected out from the church, with the remaining codswallop courtesy of msm.
Mere minutes here to spout. Here's one misunderstand: 'We' must push some unnatural desire for God and this to exclusion of all creation and culture. Somehow, 'God' gets a kick out of the fame and attention.
Work up a thirst and hunger. Drum discipline and narrow interests.
Without any time here to expand and forcing myself into a sentence or three:
The cart before horse. God is that magnificent and and grabs us into obsession. There's no trying on his/her part (-feminine pronoun thrown in for evangelistic purposes) . We catch and connect. There have been multiple struggles on this score readily admit but seeing the light why and reverse engineering the break in circuit... again... a forthcoming seed. (Will do a continuation tomorrow).
This is about no-one else THIS good, true and wonderful. No one/thing/else, is that interesting and able to reach us so deeply, while such a liberator of all. We have a prison-locking-up flood coming upon us, and we got needs... not the ones our recent, historically derived, normalcy bias equalizes away. The bandits... robber-barons are on the hill top. Ready to pillage. Defeated if/but/will/we?
We need writers and expressers, seed planters and prayer-as-we go and always on-ers.
Need to be preoccupied. With life not the illusion to unreality.
Merton on 'solitude':
'There is no greater disaster in the spiritual life than to be immersed in unreality, for life is maintained and nourished in us by our vital relation with realities outside and above us. When our life feeds on unreality, it must starve. It must therefore die. There is no greater misery than to mistake this fruitless death for the true, fruitful and sacrificial "death" by which we enter into life.'
