Well, I went to bed last night with Entrecard's server down and I woke up to Entrecard's server down. I don't rush to Entrecard anything at anytime. I just happen to have my browser set up to log in automatically. When the server is down, the browser can't log in, of course.
"Card drops" are the number of Entrecard members who come to this site and click the drop button to "leave a calling or business card."
"Organic clicks" are clicks from the Entrecard site directly to this site. The Real Liberal Christian Church (RLCC) shows up on the Entrecard site in many places, including in the "in box" of each member if I've dropped my card on his or her blog. Members were recompensing from their in boxes. It's not Godly to begin with, but it gets worse.
Well, card drops have fallen off by 13.5% and organic clicks are even worse.
Why do I care? On a certain level, I don't. The only, I repeat for emphasis, only, thing I care about is getting the word out to people that the very foundation of Entrecard is the capitalist system that is inherently evil and therefore fatally flawed for being self-centered; often extremely greedy, acquisitive, and hoarding; usually polluting; definitely Military Industrial Complex oriented and the most war making system by far; violently coercive through its secular government; land grabbing and thieving; usurious; lying; etc.
None of that means that all things anti-Capitalism are automatically both good and right. It does though mean that one cannot be a capitalist (an advocate of that ideology) and be advocating good and right. Capitalism rewards via depletion. Wrongheaded socialists or false-socialist systems overtaken by forces that arise to be equally brutal against capitalism can do and have done many of the sins of capitalism including deplete the fat of the land.
Entrecard is a microcosm of the whole capitalists system. Enrich the capitalist(s) at the negative expense of the whole and you will be given your share of the spoils. That's how it works in the final analysis.
So why am I in it? I'm in it but not of it. I'm not become what it is. How can anyone shine the light into the dark even from the hallway with the door shut and sealed? Is the time passed when souls have heard enough and the difference between right and wrong has been made so stark that none who has not turned is already lost forever? No, that time has not arrived yet.
How does one enter through a door and not find it removed behind him? Is staying in Entrecard (or America or the world dominated by the banksters) to be stuck with no option but to do evil? No, that's why Jesus's story has survived even against the wickedest of the atheists, who seek to self-license to do anything often as closet sociopaths and always as eternal relativists.
I have the Entrecard setting wide open now. I've rejected two advertisers. I need not explain myself for that. The way the settings are now, I will no longer be "explicitly" approving advertisers. All mammon that results from this whole process (100% of it) will be going into the Christian Commons Land and Building Fund.
There is no other such entity in the world as the Christian Commons Project (CCP). There are entities that are closer than are others; but the CCP is not Pauline and is wide-open proselytizing, which makes the RLCC and CCP singularly uniquely real Christian and real Liberal, being the same things.
The CCP will bring forth the fruits of righteousness that is not depleting but rather additive, bringing forth the real bounty that the churls (capitalists) can never do and have never done, in spite of their claims to the contrary. (See: "SATAN WAS HERE TEMPTING: HE FAILED")
Capitalism is the devouring spirit. It came out from the proverbial Satan. Entrecard, no matter how much it talks about helping the blogger(s), is not about the real love of Christ. My commentator and fellow Entrecarder, Bruce Baker of the Faith and Facts website/blog, left his comment here indicating that he doesn't expect Entrecard to be Christian. You see, a self-identified Southern Baptist, Pauline, capitalist preacher, Bruce Baker, I seek to save as my brother whom I love, openly shows that Christians know that capitalism is antichrist but go ahead with it anyway and without any explanation justified under their other tenet of "Scripture Alone," or where they don't hold with that, then under scripture at all, at least not New Testament, not if they don't twist the parables into the out-of-context grotesque. The New Testament does not support Capitalism at all. It rather roundly condemns it.
The super patriots have slowed their rhetoric lately since their lying, torture, illegal spying, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and the rest of the bad, caused them to lose at the polls since the Plutocrats had to swing it the other way or have the rug of their own weaving pulled out from under them. The banker-gangsters chose Barack Obama. The general population of the U.S. was led by the bankers who funded the American machine to bring forth the actor/pendulum-swinger who will not go the distance any more than George W. Bush went the distance with all of his lies in his campaigns.
Tens of thousands of children and others are abused, neglected, and die each day of totally and easily preventable causes and through no fault of their own but rather on account of the land rapists who are the capitalists. Meanwhile, Entrecarders, as the microcosmic image of Capitalism, focus in on the community of private, special, privilege, and advantage only consuming in the end, unable to give back more to the wholeness that heals human kind rather then harming, all for lack of the Christian Commons mentality and supportive action.
Look at all the effort, time, and energy being expended on "me, mine, more" rather than "we, ours, and the real more" rather than depletion and artificially (capitalist) created scarcity. Where are the hearts, minds, and souls of people when this is the reality of the situation? It is false reality.
There is nothing real in Entrecard or capitalism in the sense in which Jesus uses the term real — the real "real."
Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever. (John 6:53-58 KJVR)
His is the real bread. The bread for the flesh alone and even the bread that was manna is not that real bread. Only God is real. God is the real reality. Satan is a trick leading to more and more falsehood, darkness, corruption, fracturing, death, pain, suffering, feasts but then dreadful famines for the selfish and innocent alike until those innocent are delivered out of the clutches of greed.
If the same amount of effort, time, and energy were spent by the same numbers of people all working to pool their efforts not for a system of competition and diminishing false-rewards but rather on the cooperation of the original Jesus disciples of Acts where they shared all, how soon the planet would be healed!
To whom is this addressed? It is addressed to the lost who, once they've heard the truth, turn back to truth and come back to life, for they are not dead, the prodigal sons and daughters of this the Old Earth, old wineskin that cannot hold the new wine that is the new political economy that is coming that is the Christian Commons.
And he said, A certain man had two sons: And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want. And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him. And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing. And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant. And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound. And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him. And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf. And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found. (Luke 15:11-32 KJVR)
I love that story because it is about me. I am both each son and brother and also the father. Who are you?
Neither do men put new wine into old wine-skins: else the skins burst, and the wine is spilled, and the skins perish: but they put new wine into fresh wine-skins, and both are preserved. (Matthew 9:17 ASV)
Are you a new wineskin? I am. Is your spirit the new wine? Mine is.
I am that I am. No man may take that from me. I have the right of return. My brother has come here, cried on my neck; and at the cost of his fleshly life, informed me what our father has said of me. I will not let them down ever again! I will not backslide into ignorance and the false-hearted conditioning, brain destroying, capitalism or its violence or other forms of self-licensed depravity (all unchecked lust of the flesh and evil, selfish spirit).
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. (Matthew 16:27 KJVR)
What are the works? What are deeds of macro and micro capitalism versus the political economy of the New Heaven that is Jesus's, my brother, and mine and with our father?
With whom do you stand? Where do you stand, in the light or dark?
You cannot rightly say ever again that you don't know or weren't told. You've been given the choice to choose other than the path of iniquity. What will you buy? What's on offer in the marketplace for souls?
Can Entrecard stand the truth?
I am not despitefully using them. My real gain is their real gain if they will but see it.
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)
