Theology and Politics from a Conservative, Biblical Perspective

Whether I want to see them or not, there are a ton of articles talking about the increasingly bad economy and other problems throughout the world. It’s all doom and gloom. I’ve seen the phrase “second Great Depression” used multiple times. There are many reasons that support the notion that the economy is not doing well. One of them that I had not considered is the fact that cardboard box use is down by nearly 13% the first quarter and an additional nearly 10% the second quarter of 2023. [1] That’s really huge considering most people buy things online and require some type of cardboard container for shipment.

Other bloggers are noting that the economy is in “contraction” mode, which means it’s shrinking instead of growing. These and many other indicators are signs that we are heading toward something that is not going to be good. But shhhh, don’t tell the mainstream media because they’d like us to believe everything is fine.

But aside from the economic indicators that trouble is on the way, we also have the absolute corruption happening within aspects of our federal and state (and at times, even our local), governments. The rule of law that has always been based on the Constitution is being set aside while certain agencies have weaponized themselves to go after anyone deemed a threat to their goals. By “their goals,” I’m referring to the goals of Marxism. In the case of the USA, it appears that “corporatism,” which was defined by Mussolini as, “…a merger of state and corporate power,” is rising. This is what is occurring in the United States, to the applause of all Fascists (Leftists).

These fascists want to see Donald Trump on the gallows, while ignoring and even going to bat for Joe and Hunter Biden. Even though Trump’s presidency was a bit of a mess, with the cherry on the top being the warp speed vaccine that critically thinking people understand has been abhorrent for people’s health and has likely caused a multitude of adverse reactions and deaths, Trump doesn’t really need to be treated like he’s being treated. The charges are trumped up (no pun intended), but it is clear the corrupt DOJ, FBI and other ABC agencies along with the judge overseeing the case, will continue to go after him solely because they do not want him to be elected to another term. This is a perfect example, in my opinion, of corporatism where the state and corporations have enough power to use tyranny in lieu of true justice to accomplish what they want to accomplish.

In the end, I have no real idea what is true or not. It seems to me that when I look at the political arena, everyone is some type of ACTOR, all doing their part. This will offend people, but that “may” include Trump, though I continue to think he’s being mercilessly heckled and attacked, while Joe and Hunter (and Hillary and Obama), continue to skate as untouchable.

Even when a man like Devon Archer testifies under oath before a congressional panel against Hunter Biden, the Left either vilifies him or derides him. Mainstream media pundits come out of the woodwork to tell us what a wonderful father and grandfather Joe Biden is and how much he loves his family and could not possibly have done what Archer alleges (or the IRS whistleblowers or officials in Ukraine, etc., etc., etc). They’re all making things up to take down the most popular president in the history of the USA who allegedly garnered 81 million votes and if you disagree with that, then you may have a visit from one of them thar ABC agencies tasked with dealing with “nationalists” and “white supremacists.”

It is happening all over the world and around this particular country. I just read of a young teenager who was actually arrested in Wisconsin for preaching on the sidewalk. His crime? Apparently, preaching near a drag show, yet he was on the public sidewalk. [2] The teen was using a hand held mic and amplifier and he apparently needed a permit for that but didn’t have one. Instead of simply citing him, he was arrested and probably for “resisting arrest” as well. I wonder what would have happened if he had not been using a mic and amplifier? Good to know it took three or four LEOs to bring this hardened criminal down. It’s things like this (along with incidents like what occurred in Uvalde TX where the police did nothing for 71 minutes while roughly 20 students were killed by a mass shooter), that makes me not want to provide blanket support for law enforcement. Are they on the side of law or are they simply becoming fascist henchmen these days?

Then we’ve got “climate change,” which has apparently gone from “global warming” to “global boiling.” Not sure how that happened but here we are and the tactics they are using to push that belief is interesting. Several things related to temperatures. They are often using temperatures from airports where the heat index is higher because of all the asphalt tarmacs. They also push the message with their charts while delivering the weather reports. They are now also resorting to using temperatures much closer to the ground instead of high off the ground because they can say things are heating up. All of this tends to “prove” that temperatures are warming therefore “man-made climate change” must be a real thing. They want us to fall for it, hook, line and sinker. We should expect an attempt at “climate lock downs” anytime now to show us they’re in control and our movements are harming Gaia.[3] Don’t fall for it.

But let me shift gears here in the remainder of this article. I could complain all day and nothing would change. The real question is what do we do in the face of this stench and abject evil that exists and is so confident that it now doesn’t even try to hide itself? For me, that’s the greatest question I can ask because the corrupt corporatism that we see growing daily is doing everything it can to cower people into submission. The goal is to make us afraid to act or speak out of turn by doing or saying something that goes against the accepted narrative. They want us compliant. Was Jesus complaint to lawlessness? Was John the Baptist or Paul? Was Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, Tyndale et al?

So again, what should our response be to all of this? I can only think of one real substantive response that will allow us to retain our dignity and purposefully create for ourselves some semblance of well-being in the midst of the growing behemoth of corruption that seeks to swallow all dissenters up and conform us to the final global order.

The answer is, as far as I can see, to continue doing the normal things we’ve always done in life and if you’ve gotten away from those things, make deliberate attempts to get back to them. That is the best defense against growing tyranny. It’s not easy but it’s necessary. Let me provide some examples in no particular order.

First, continue going to church for teaching and fellowship. If you don’t go to church, at least try to find other Christians to fellowship with because there is something renewing and refreshing about that. God designed humans to be creatures that need interaction with other human beings. We need it. It cultivates more of our humanity. True Christians share a bond and we need to exploit that bond.

Second, get out and enjoy life! Don’t stay home thinking that you’ll be safer there away from the crowds because then you’ll have to deal with your thoughts that will tend to crowd out the good things in life. In other words, you’ll be overcome with dark thinking unless you happen to be in the mold of Mary Poppins. I’m not and sometimes I can wake up and almost immediately be overwhelmed by the garbage that’s going on in the world. It can take its toll. Drive around. Travel to other places. Break out of a mindset of fear that keeps you home bound.

Scooby relaxing in my office. I’ll have an update on this boy soon!

Third, get together with like-minded friends and family and take time with any pets you have to enjoy them. They give back what they are given. Seek out family and friends who provide like-mindedness as much as possible. Even if you don’t talk politics, you find yourself feeling at ease because you know where you all stand. During our vacation, we saw some family members who took the jab. I recall their original reason was because they didn’t want to “bring anything home to the kids.” The problem is that the wife and kids have been off and on sick since then. The wife – during our visit – stated she wished she had never gotten the jab. At least she’s thinking and I’ve been able to suggest she consider certain supplements to mitigate the effects of the spike protein.

However, there are some family and friends that I’ve realized I cannot get together with because we disagree on so many things that our conversations would be so superficial it would be tense in that way. We don’t agree on God’s Word. We don’t agree on politics. We don’t agree on the jab, so in the end, what’s the point of getting together? It wouldn’t be enjoyable or restful. It would be stressful. Choose the people you get together with wisely.

Fourth, do things that remind you of the past; the things that you’ve always enjoyed doing, that brought happiness to your life. Whether it’s hiking, reading a book, enjoying a favorite ice cream, eating a favorite dinner, just get out and do it. Go to the beach. Go to the mountains. Do the things you’ve always done even though it may feel strange at first. If you push yourself, you’ll eventually get back to that time when you enjoyed them and were actually refreshed by them.

Fifth, laugh more. I mean it. Find things in life that are funny and think on them. Laughter is still one of the best medicines for what ails us because it relieves stress.

Sixth, be aware of what’s happening in the world (the “breads and circuses”), but don’t get caught up in those things. Don’t be overwhelmed by them because what we are seeing is not happenstance, but controlled demolition. Stay aloof emotionally. You’ll be more alert.

Seventh, practice shooting and self-defense at least for clarity and exercise. If not that, then at least exercise and lift weights to firm things up and gain renewed energy.

Eighth, (and I’ve saved this for last), do what you can to draw close to our Lord. Do this through prayer and reading His Word.

Other people have more ideas but I think these are good starts. The powers that be have been using psychological warfare on societies for decades. They yearn to bend us to their will. They want to distract us, tire us out, overwhelm and break our wills so that we stop resisting and for us to ultimately accept whatever they throw at us. By doing some of the things I’ve listed, our minds fight against that agenda.

If someone has other ideas, please feel free to share them. It may not make a difference for the world, but it could go a long way in making a huge difference for you and me because it will change our perceptive and resolve.
