How do we know that Jesus is the truth and that syncretism-up is the conflation?

I know, because selfishness beat me down and I fought back and won only a temporary false victory. My own fighting back seemed to save me at the time, but it also turned me into a more selfish creature. That selfishness ate away at me and made me sick. It was unnatural to me. It was desensitizing me and sensitizing me in the wrong way.

The worldly world was wrong before I arrived. It had worked it disease upon all the other human beings who were here when I got here. That disease instantly attacked me, just as it does everyone. My particular circumstances in conjunction with me predisposition resulted in my finally becoming agoraphobic, suffering from cascading panic attacks. I am a recovering agoraphobiac.

Is that giving away a weakness to the enemy? No. The truth weakens the enemy. Within this context, weakness is strength.

Selfishness devours souls. It tempts. When one caves into it, one falls. It is a freefall into darkness until one listens to God saying that it was selfishness that caused it and only unselfishness will reverse it.

We are judge constantly by one another. Who's better. Who's the right one to lead. Until we see it, we are conditioned to judge ourselves by the standard of the worldly world, the current, prevalent, standard as of Monday, September 25, 2006. That standard is a mess. It is killing people. It is killing souls.

That standard is competition rather than cooperation. That standard is violence, greed, and depravity rather than peace, giving and sharing all freely, and sexual purity. That standard is the deception, the filthiness, that is what is called the noble lie rather than real truth. That standard is what causes all the diseases rather than health.

Will this truth save the world? Yes. However, you must understand that the term "world" is contextual too, as is everything. The world it will save is the world to come, the world of the new earth and heaven.

Some will bristle that this is tautological. We've dealt with that before, but just to remind ourselves, something that is tautological is something that is redundant and circular at the same time. Again, everything can be viewed as tautological. Again, logic is circular. The truth is redundant even as it is infinite and absolute.

The wanton death of innocent children, "collateral damage," is sacrifice to Moloch

What is best? Whom do you believe? Do you believe George W. Bush that his war is right and just? Then what of the innocent he killed? The innocent were sacrificed by him for the greater good? How far removed is that from child sacrifice to Moloch? How far removed is that from the priests practicing cannibalism or from pedophiliac orgies in some temple?

Are we saying that George W. Bush is sacrificing to Moloch or practicing cannibalism or is a pedophile? It is clear that whether he realizes it or he is sacrificing the innocent due to the evil condition within and without his heart.

Have we all fallen to evil, to sin? Yes. We must forgive each other and ourselves as God forgives us. To change to head toward God though we must first recognize that we have been headed in a different direction.

We must do that without over shooting our course correction. Jesus is the example of how not to over steer. He did not become arrogant. That's a miracle.


The following should appear at the end of every post:

According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":

Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.

Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.

Political Campaign Intervention

Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.

Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.

Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:

  • Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
  • Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
  • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
  • Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
  • Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office

Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:

  • The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
  • Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
  • We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
  • When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
  • It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
  • We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
  • We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
  • When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
  • We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
  • It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
