“I think I will de-friend any 911 truthers…idiots!” . . . said one blogger. Another was more direct, invited his Facebook friends to “confess” and then threatened to defriend anyone if they dared to suggest that the 9-11 fiasco was a false-flag event.
Goodness me what a temptation . . . so I stepped right up to the mark and “confessed” my crimes. I did it, he did (CYA!) and thus marked another example of opinionated bigotry.
Bugger off I’ll defriend you if you don’t agree with me”, is the guts of it, sounding a lot like the days of Hitler when what you thought or valued had to align with others.
Sunday’s Sermon from Samoa is (for those who like to gossip) nothing to do with Samoa, but more to do with being blinded by blinkers and keeping friendships. It’s easy to put our head in the sand, and hard to keep friends.
It’s not the first time I haven’t seen eye-to-eye with someone by any stretch of the imagination, and won’t be the last – for sure! He’s a Christian apologist, philosopher and supposedly well-respected in the academic world, but obviously has his head in the
sand clouds for too long to smell the roses. If I ever read anything of his material again it will be a bit hard for me to accept that his viewpoint shows anything other than intellectual logic. I’m going to have to filter all his material now in light of his belief that what is served up to him by others (such as the mainstream media) are greatly influencing his world-view.
Christians, and particularly thinking ones, should be the last to fall for the mainstream media mantra that gets served up as fact, for they generally preach the biggest conspiracy of them all – that mankind has been tricked into rejecting God’s best advice in the Garden of Eden.
Unfortunately, for some, having God “on our side”, means that our brains are left in neutral. Sad! The Lord gave us eyes to see and brains to think. We should use them more.
Just for the record, I’m pretty simple on some things: when something looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it probably is a duck. The 9-11 thing, like many major events before it, looks exactly like a false-flag event, smells like one and has all the makings of one. Every single person I have shared this subject with has either an agenda or hasn’t truly asked the questions (for whatever reason).
I wasn’t there, wasn’t privy to the discussions going on around the Illuminati tables, nor involved in anything to do with cover-ups and misinformation, but all the events that have happened since reek of disinformation, manipulation and not surprisingly real power entrenching into the hands of a few.
Understanding the occult, and the Illuminati, and the way power and money is used to manipulate the masses . . . yup, it smells like a duck to me.
Don’t ask me to argue every point or explain away every little detail. I just get the big picture. There are too many unanswered questions for me in the 9-11 thing and taking a big-picture view of the leadup, surrounding circumstances and following events, it is more than clear to me that skulduggery happened. I have my own opinion and understanding of who what why and where over it, and it sure as heck isn’t the official version of events. I’ve read every word of the official report. It’s a big report available online and clearly a cover-up, not addressing ANY of the key questions that I want to know the answers to before I believe the Media.
Forget the other 9-11 truthers/nutters. I just don’t have satisfactory answers I want – unless of course I put the whole thing into a “conspiracy framework” and then it all makes sense. I don’t just take the mainstream media stories at face value. I know what goes on to generate a story, and the bible is quite clear about who is in charge of the world’s affairs, and it ain’t who the media tell us it is!
Taking this stance means that, my friends either have to agree to disagree, and get on with life, or they aren’t friends.
I can still love people that do not agree with me; I can still work with them and agree to disagree and get on with life, but it is a rare and mature breed who can do the same with me!
Real friends do that, you know.
I was talking recently about Jesus’ friends. He spoke to large crowds, sometimes. At those rallies He preached, but it was a hard word, that challenged people and didn’t meet their expectations. He knew that only a few had a heart to hear. He explained that they were just all about themselves:
Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, you are looking for me, not because you saw miraculous signs but because you ate the loaves and had your fill.
and thus weren’t really friends of God.
He had a lot to say about the religious and the intellectuals of the day too, but mostly not good. He built a few friends around Himself, even befriending one He knew would dob him in a couple of years later, but they only numbered a dozen.
Yet even within that friendship group he called disciples, there were three that were especially close, and one, the author of the above scripture, John, who had a real heart for Him and His ministry.
Oh yes, that man John was a great friend. He knew the Master well and was close. He too still denied Jesus at the end, but he was a true friend of Christ.
Little wonder then that when it came time for God to reveal the events of the future, that He called John out, to an island away from all distractions where he could focus, see the events and then scribble them all down for us in the power of the Holy Spirit. OK sure, jail may not have been John’s first choice of locality to receive the visions of Revelation, but hey, he had his needs looked after and was hardly distracted eh?
So then what did this close friend of Jesus see that has put the world on fire ever since? What did he say about end-times and things like false-flag events? Digging deep, I find that the evil one will be building a New World Order, deception will be common and that everything “fits” with a conspiracy view of the world.
It looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, walks like a duck and the Lord revealed to the closest of friends of Jesus, that there would be lots of “ducks” in the world towards the end.
Yup, I’ll put money on it – it’s a duck – friends or no friends.
