Dividing Lines II

The principal Supreme Court opinions of 1962 and 1973 energized social-religious groups professing all things Christian (with their mouths). The 2022 abnegation of both decisions—mere tokens—piqued anti-Christian social groups. These supercilious cliques herald domestic hostilities fomented by the deceitful wizard and his perfidious host. Specific individuals place gratuitous emphasis on public prayer while others market demise as something pure, like respiring. Collectively, they ply finite institutions for approval.

We need not make a civic display of prayer, nor is death natural.

Matthew 6:5-6

5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

Romans 5:12

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

“God created the world without death, but because of sin, we will all die one day. Death is not natural.”

As in capital punishment, throngs advocate exterminating human life (sidestepping any dirty work, or course). Answer: devise an organizational apparatus to dispose of the biologic refuse—Bio-waste Management. Base protocol: Deposit the biological detritus into a solid container and fasten the lid. At a predetermined time, situate this closed container (interim casket) near the street curb along with other throw aways. The friendly folks at Bio-waste will send an oversized truck that stops, empties the provisional tomb, and moves onward, servicing the entire community in a like manner. Thus, we divert our trusting eyes and virtuous attention towards loftier ambitions—remaining upright. The organization shields us from direct involvement in the cadaverous showcase (lest we sully our white robes. We draw no distinction between an old wine bottle and a fledgling member of the extant human race).

Permissiveness, expediency are central factors o’er the palaver vis-à-vis morals, civil rights. Solemnity rarely understood; obligations hastily abandoned with ease. For example: standing before one’s betrothed affirming (with one’s mouth) explicit codes of conduct later to flee when conditions become demanding. Theory and practice militate against each other. Self-proclaimed sensible beings invariably at extremes—swaying pendulums—strangers to sound reasoning, clear judgment. Answer: Institution of a regime to dispose of these slanted, flighty, shallow-minded characters instead. Done! The Sword of Truth to descend upon the faint-hearted inhabitants of earth.

There is no intermediate ground pertinent to marriage or death (other comparisons result from highly distilled efforts. I’m teasing). Still, mortal beings continue to dodge eternal revelation, unwilling to reconcile with God, and thus, establish truth. Mouths lie constantly—it is a simple thing to achieve. However, actions boldly proclaim true motivations.

Shady unions pursue political institutions for general sanction of perversions, horrors they choose to commit; eagerly following unsound practices in the shadows; in the light portraying themselves as innocents—as well as victims of large-scale oppression. The lie betrayed by their hyperbolic, legalistic advances. Apart from the haunting chronicles of autochthonous populations and official thralldom, I am reticent to define a sizeable portion of any other culture’s history in the United States as repressive. Metrics recently co-opted by certain alliances, though by authentic comparison there are no others who can legitimately claim oppression (women’s liberation fueled by pride and prejudice. Spellbound by intrigue, womenfolk paraded for their inalienable right to be wage slaves alongside menfolk. Caught up in the pandemonium over money and status, competing spouses, or rivals, dumped their young’uns as predicted into the waiting arms of the state).

The shifts from agrarian life to urban existence; industrial workers to service minions yields changes not only in landscape but perception. We recognize outside transformations yet persist, unaware of inward makeovers. Typically, individuals pay for and receive finished products, leaving the responsibility to suppliers. Food, water, and news are all things we imbibe. There are additives listed on packaging except for news, of course. Concentrations exist but remain invisible to the naked mind. Subtlety, lying between what happened and why. Should the needy followers weigh up, they would certainly draw different conclusions regarding why, apart from the fabricated popular narratives—the finished product.

Still, the aforesaid enterprise arises not. Willful ignorance with tellievision keeping the unrepentant in the dark for which they are eternally grateful. TV pointed to as a genuine source of aggregate relevant information; simply an excuse people use covering their lack of purpose; claiming they’re duly informed. Yet it is a passive endeavor; those who engage it yelp during the day, then yawn as night falls; finally positioned to rest on a supple mattress, having achieved nothing—which was the true intent all along.  

Same principle applies to elected officials who are happy to absorb all blame for distinct privileges, i.e., writing laws, directing enforcement, a six-figure salary, universal prestige, federal police protection. An exclusive, remote scene free from the great unwashed, that is their constituency. “It is the theory of Rome that toilers should remain in ignorance. Gentlemen for the palaces, serfs for the field…” TV designed, successively installed in 1938 has developed into the dope of the people—counterfeit comforter of impenitent masses.

“I’m very much in favor of personal idealism. I’m against the kind of idealism that sees the government as the indispensable vehicle for that idealism.”

~William F. Buckley Jr. | Firing Line Episode S0104 |  20 August 1973

Courtiers live, think outside veiled structures built for, containing the hoi polloi. Simply adding known stimuli at precise times serves to direct the popular by impulse—indiscernible cords. The aphorism, “hidden in plain sight” works because what is easily perceptible is just as easily misinterpreted; promoted, acting on the surface as beneficial. Take another: “visible principals over invisible purposes.” If one stops short in their reasoning (petrified over ease and security) one goes wrong everywhere else. Is a universal food and water distribution network better or just plain easier? Tell somebody they are soft and invariably physicality looms large in their mind, actually referred to. Bring someone up from 1822 and tell them life, survival is difficult; they would consider it an outrage. Lost is vital contrast; significant portions of history erased from memory; people behave as though history began the day they emanated from the womb—like newborn babes.

That was a tangent.

Should we, as Christians, attempt to legislate/enforce Christianity, act out flamboyantly in staged pageants hailing Christian Pride? Absurd! No such prescription regarding the Faith. The way of the world looks even more ridiculous (dare to imagine). Astounding, not surprising.

Matthew 18:3

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

I would hazard those unconverted increasingly behave as little children to penetrate the kingdom of Satan; reign of anti-Christ—hell on earth for a season. The situation is grave.

Countless people who profess Christianity are not. Untold personages who profess republicanism (the American ideal) are not. In both cases, the vast majority cannot distinguish the two.

Galatians 3:5

For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
