How My Mother’s Grief Helped Me See The Godlike Power Of Q

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

from The Burning Platform:

My dad will be sent home this Tuesday. The doctors (probably along with the insurance company) have determined they can do more for him. We’ll be getting an in-home hospice service. Dad keeps mumbling “I just want to go home”, so home is where he will die. Die this week? Next week?  How long can a heart pumping at 20% keep a man alive?

Plus, he’s not getting enough oxygen even with the tubes. So, he drifts in and out of deep sleep. Sometimes he awakes in fear and panic. Other times with various hallucinations. And yet other times, unbelievably, he awakens totally lucid and coherent.

One such coherent moment was yesterday.  He was talking to mom, and then suddenly started crying. He was afraid no one would be there to take care of her, especially if she fell. Mom assured dad that I would be there for her. And then she put her gnarled hand on his forearm and said; “Ausserdem,Gott ist mit uns.”  (Translation: “Other than that, God is with us.”)


This stunned me quite profoundly. Neither of my parents are particularly religious. Neither has entered a church for at least 40 years (other than going to weddings/funerals). I have NEVER heard them discuss amongst themselves spiritual issues. And yet … “Gott ist mit uns.”

You can see why I immediately wondered; “What is the meaning of this proclamation from my mom?”

Is it about hope never failing? Is it a sign of desperation? Is it a plea to God? Is it just BS you say when there is nothing left to say? Is she a “secret Christian” and I’m being to judgmental about her spiritual state?  Maybe it means nothing at all? There are many other possibilities.  So many questions, so few answers.

Perhaps I’ll never know what she meant because her utterance was a matter of the heart … and, who knows the true intent of the heart except God?  If he even exists.  And with that last thought it suddenly hit me — what difference does it make that I “know” the meaning, unknowable and elusive as it might be.  What if I’m asking the wrong question in my never-ending — and often ridiculous — quest in search of Deeper Things.  What if the real question is; “WHY did she say that?”

I pondered and came up with this simple idea:  It is the EFFECT of Christianity which AFFECTed her.

You can be the most rabid God-hating atheist possible but, when a Christian doctor working at a hospital built by a Christian organization saves your life after a heart attack, then the effect of Christianity affected you. If America’s Founding Father’s drafted the Constitution with Biblical principles in mind (no matter how great or small) then ALL of us are feeling the effects of Christianity, daily. That’s just how it works.

Why can’t the same principles be applied to Q? And it matters not one iota whether this Q is an individual, an organization, … or even just an idea. That’s because The Effect which Q has on us all, or doesn’t have, remains constant.

And what is that Q effect? It IS this …..


I have not been a Q supporter these past few months … even making my typical snarky sarcastic comments towards TPB’s Apostles Of Q … Yojimbo, T4C, Indentured Servant, and others. But, mom’s utterance “Gotta ist mit uns” suddenly opened my eyes at least to the possibility of Q-wisdom. In fact, I’m now somewhat embarrassed that I missed the truth expressed in the picture above … that Q  shines light on darkness.

Now, some might vehemently object; “Nothing has happened yet! I will only believe when things start happening … like, arrests!”.  Oh, ye are like Doubting Thomas. Did that Apostle see the appearance of the Kingdom WHILE the Master was teaching and walking amongst the living? No … and neither did any of his other followers. They all suffered temporary blindness of the heart. Yet, His Kingdom was unfolding and being prepared in their every presence, despite their unbelief! So it is with Q.

The other popular objection is; “None of Q’s predictions have come to pass!” First,  that is simply not true. Secondly, Q does not engage in prophecy. Lastly, even if true, why does it matter? Have all the prophecies in Scripture been fulfilled — including those made by Jesus? Of course not. Do we disregard the entire message because part of it is unfullfilled? Again, of course not! We make adjustments …  and move on to what IS understood. We do not throw out the baby with the bathwater! Why, then, do some hold Q to a higher standard than even The Almighty himself? This is an abomination.

I want to close with a verse from the Koran;

“We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than his jugular vein.”

If we can’t find God … what if it’s because He’s not far away, but because He is so close? What if He is like our own eyes, which can see everything. but never sees itself except in a reflection? What if the Divine is so close, so intimate, and the very essence of our intimate self that we’ve been “looking” for Him in all the wrong places? What if He is not “out there” but, rather, “in here”?

    “You can be the most rabid God-hating atheist possible but, when a Christian doctor working at a hospital built by a Christian organization saves your life after a heart attack, then the effect of Christianity affected you.”

    This is parody, right?

    How can you hate a God that doesn’t exist? If a muslim doctor saved a life,, is that Islam affecting you?

    Seeing Q as a predicting profet is so far from reality.

    Q was seen as a white house office leaker. He provided nothing Compared to real leakers like Snowdon or wikileaks.

    He is just a Troll that caught most conspiracy Binners because it is easy clickbait
