AGE OF THE HYPOCRITES AND HEATHENS

“cheering on this human devil of a man Biden to be their leader”

It’s hard to believe it, as I never thought I would be living in the time to actually witness or suffer with so many others in a world that is seeking evil and destruction at an unprecedented rate that escalates by the year!  Now there are actually many citizens around us that praise evil and hoist up the immoral in order to worship them and the evil one!  Just listen to “#Me Too” lately along with Planned Parenthood and many elitist celebrities like the whining Alyssa Milano the has been actress along with Commie Minion AOC saying, “so what” even if Joe Biden did sexually assault Tara Reade they don’t support her, even with all of her vastly verified corroborating evidence; yet these dirty filthy hypocrites that were screaming bloody murder against Judge Kavanaugh during his appointment to the Supreme Court, when he was being accused by a soused, crony leftist, crazy woman Christine Blasey Ford who said 35 years ago when a teen, Kavanaugh raped her at a party, which she had zero credibility or corroboration of ever actually happening!

But her lie was bolstered by wicked Senator Diane Feinstein one of the highest raking Democrats who is even nefariously connected to China, along with the crazy Wicked Witch of the West Nancy Pelosi, both of whom groomed Ford’s testimony before the Senate, while they constructed the narrative through the equally evil Main Stream Media Minions, and to this day Pelosi states, “Joe is just Joe,” as her position about his well-documented established inappropriate behavior of women!  Just the way Liar Shifty Adam Schiff carried out a fake story and complete lie of Russian Collusion between the Trump campaign through Russian operatives from the moment he was elected President; then when that failed he accused Trump with a supposed whistle blowers allegation that The President bribed the Ukraine’s President Zelinsky with a congressionally approved aide package threatening to hold the funds back if Zelinsky didn’t cooperate with Trumps Agenda; which was a complete hoax and failed coup d’ etat’ as we all know now after so much waste and damage done by such treasonous agents right here in the US Government at the highest levels, carried out by the previous administration and Deep State Cronies; “Swamp Creatures!”

A time when we see a most Despicable, Lying Crony Career Politician such as Creepy, Crazy, Hypocrite Joe Biden actually running for president of the greatest country on earth; that is of course until it sank into moral decay and deceit on an unimaginable scale to where there are now countless minions of diabolical evil that are actually cheering on this human devil of a man Biden to be their leader, especially the entire Democrat Party that is a refuge of misfits, the worst sinners, liars, cheats, communists, perverts, murderers, backstabbing human scum of the earth, that to me are worse than what I’ve seen in cesspools over the course of my lifetime!  A world where a dirty rotten wicked minion and cohort of hell Nancy Pelosi can lead the Democrat Communist Party toward the destruction of America with impunity and with a thrill as she does it, wielding totally corrupted human earthy power even as she claims to be a Catholic just like Biden does, while not even living in the slightest way in accordance with the teachings and tenets of the Church that follows strictly through thousands of years of theologian accurate deciphering of the Holy Scriptures; in order to live in the way that Jesus Christ Himself instructed the faithful to live.  Everything they do is in complete opposition to any degree or fragment of what Jesus taught; but rather they blaspheme God!  And, they are attempting to lead the world through America’s power and influence toward perdition, under a One World Leader within the guise of New World Order, which will usher in the Antichrist who will usurp all the powers and demonic forces of hell into this New World Construct, to enslave the human race in a world of sin and debauchery like the “good old earth” has never witnessed, in order to bring Armageddon upon God’s beautiful creation!

This doesn’t shake my faith and absolute resolve to “Fight the Good Fight” to the end if necessary, as in fact it demands my ceaseless commitment to be in the thick of it, this spiritual and physical battle that I’ve learned to deal with all too well in recent years being attacked by these so called Democrats in my jurisdiction; even where I grew up!   And, I was always a decent law abiding Christian citizen; nonetheless as they turned on me like a pack of blood thirsty vampires wanting me to suffer and die; these vile demonic inflicted, wicked cohorts of  the devil on earth, that have no mercy or kindness at all.  The underlying force for any of them is more wealth and earthly power or prestige, to be within the inner circle of favor and privilege that they basically swear an allegiance to, as they seek acceptance into this New Order of Totalitarian Power on earth; which is selling their souls to the devil!  In my case some devastating things happened; all of which only occurred during what I call the 8 Darkest Years in American History, under the fraud diabolical minion of hell “Obama Administration,” he who promoted so many of the most unholy policies, conspiracies and anti-America agendas this country has ever had to such a degree, seeking to corrupt and ruin the actual fabric of this Nation under God of the People, by the People and for the People whose rights are inalienable and given by God the Creator of all things seen and unseen!

But, they saw that I would never give one ounce of my worth to any of it and they knew it by all I said plainly in public and by my actions; so they conspired and set out to ruin, any way they could!  They are thoroughly networked and have many schemes up their sleeves to bring down their adversaries or anyone who opposes their evil and lies; that poses any threat to them and won’t align with their program!  We’ve all witnessed this firsthand on television and the internet or reading numerous articles about what trap or weaponized accusation the Democrats craft and spring upon the chosen target!  Yet these same criminals using the old “Gestapo Rule Book” accuse the Trump administration and its loving Christian supporters of the many wrongs that they the Democrats perpetrate!  Like even voter suppression and other civil liberties as stated by the ACLU this month in their campaign against the current administration; when in fact it’s the Democrats who pretend and lie about supporting the people and their liberties, which factually they are always seeking ways to further rob the citizens of these inalienable rights and freedom!   All of which I found out the hard way having dealt directly on my own with these Communist, Nazi Gestapo Evildoers, up close and personal, who tried to set traps and use administrative government muscle to subdue and annihilate me as an enemy with a loud voice, which is only going to be heard more loudly and clearly as the fight ensues!  These devils picked a fight with the wrong guy, because, I’m a true “Brave Heart” who will march into the devils den to Fight the Good Fight for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who is the one true God Almighty, and the time draws ever near to His glorious return.

 This horrendous Wuhan Corona Virus Pandemic was and is another effect of the evil plans these monsters are preparing and planning to spring upon the citizens as opportunity presents itself, making them already responsible with the Communist Chinese Party for hundreds of thousands of deaths and countless numbers of suffering humans!   But, if the wicked and cheating liars among us are able to get anyone into office as President of these United States of America other than Donald J. Trump, we will be seeing the suffering and climatic end of our civilization ramped up ferociously to allow the “evil one” the “roaring lion” from the bowels of hell to rise up and devour many unworthy or foolish souls before the final judgment arrives; of this material plane!  1 Peter 5:8 (ASV) “Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”

I hope and pray that more of you out there are wise and loving of your Creator than I could possibly imagine, and that you don’t want to allow this darkness to overshadow all of the good that still is out there in or on God’s beautiful earth; because if you do believe and stand tall to these adversaries showing good faith, which God will allow to serve as a penance, giving special graces to us to soften and reduce much of the suffering that is on the way to destroy humanity once and for all!  Please hear my plea and try your best to give up the things of this sick, corrupted sinful world and put all of your hopes and love in God, who loves you more than you can ever imagine, who is only seeking to ask you to remain by His side, in order to take you home to your eternal life with Him and all that is good; to be in peace, love, joy and happiness for eternity!

 God Bless You!

  1. Hi Lawrence ! This is really well written and comprehensive. The polarization within society is increasing, with more people clearly deciding which ‘side’ they are going to be on.
    As you say, we did not expect to see these developments within our lifetimes, but, nevertheless here they are.
    The pictures you posted speak volumes.
    My favourite is the Valais Blacknose Sheep.
    Thanks for posting. 🤗

    1. 🤗 Thank you so much Sally! You’re astute perceptions and wisdom along with your deep genuine faith is inspiring to me and I feel honored that you have said such things here! Oh yes, the battle lines have been drawn for some time and the clash of totally contrasting opposing forces is intensifying exponentially now as the devil has set the stage for each side to stand up for their determined desire to prevail with everything at stake, in fact the stakes have never been any higher nor will there be any further need to contrast them any further in order to plunge the world into utter global conflict of self-annihilation which is what “divide and conquer” is all about and Satan knows this better than any earthly military strategist or brutal ruler; even the Communist Party of China! I’m actually sad but also resolved simultaneously when I say there is no turning this back now, the proverbial cat is out of the bag, and this latest decisive blow to civilized humanity by the “deliberate pandemic” though unconscionable is after all expected in light of what the Holy Scriptures have forecast or prophesied for millennia along with the simple truth that in general mankind is too damaged to uphold God’s tenets of Truth, Love, Charity and Righteousness across the board by all peoples to bring Peace on Earth! This will never happen without direct intervention by God Himself and the human race has only been on a march to its ultimate fate or destiny in accordance with God’s plan and will; now sitting at the precipice! Things are so very much on the fast track now and nothing will ever be the same, so I pray for God’s deliverance and final judgment sooner rather than later as I know great suffering is coming. You know I think, why the beautiful little baby lamb is in the piece, and you as I, see the absolute beauty in that creature of God’s; and we know how much He loves that innocent, gentle, peaceful and loving near perfection, just like we see in our little human babies, and God plans to have that for all His creation once He judges it all with His great mercy and divides the sheep and the goats, but more importantly when He vanquishes all evil forever! We seek our Glorious God Almighty’s Kingdom to Come! I’m happy and humbled by your perspective and just knowing you got something positive from this makes my day Sally! I hope I do even much more as I live out my days trying to serve Him who gave me all I have or will ever have; most precious is the opportunity He has given me and countless souls to be His servant and to try to do His will hopefully to the best of my ability fighting my own sinful human earthly nature better each day; then if worthy in His eyes I will be an heir to His glorious kingdom! Amen. 🤗 🤗 🙏 🙏

      1. Yes, Lawrence, I agree with you. The ‘cat is out of the bag,’ and, unless we see a global time of sincere repentance before the Lord, that cat is going to stay out.
        I remember in Bethlehem, sitting in Ruth’s restaurant. Through the window I could see a shepherd herding sheep and goats together. The sheep were gentle, and liked to stay in a group, while the goats were rough, and liked to be on their own.

        As you say, the Great Shepherd will separate those two groups.

        Let us continue to move forward, and to warn the culture about what is happening before our very eyes.

        May our Lord continue to grant us his peace, as his plan for this world is unfolding. 🤗

      2. Sally dear friend 🤗… this is a wonderful and insightful comment that I’m going to ponder as I walk with the dog because I want to think about whatever it instills in my heart and mind as I walk along imagining that sight you saw! Very profound to me! I’ll fill in the blanks shortly! 🤗 🙏

      3. Hi Sally! 🤗 Sorry I had to depart for a mini hike but it was good for my dog and me too, lol. Actually got to see some killdeer chicks running about with their parents only by accident as me and my dog took a route through some wide open grassy area and stumbled into their quiet space where no one typically bothers them other than having to not be noticed by hawks or at night fox and coyotes, that is unless of course someone like me with a dog comes drudging along! One of the parents did its defensive maneuver of trying to lead us away and flopping on its side with one wing extended giving the appearance of being injured and easy prey just to get us close then fly a few more feet and pull the same stunt. I just made sure we turned away from them and gave plenty of room, to feel safe as we continued on. “The killdeer is a large plover found in the Americas. It was described and given its current scientific name in 1758 by Carl Linnaeus in the 10th edition of his Systema Naturae. There are three subspecies. The killdeer’s common name comes from its often-heard call. Wikipedia”
        I just found another injured mourning dove late yesterday with an injured wing so I’m trying to see if it can get another chance to fly, in the near term; it would have been feral cat or fox snack-time if I hadn’t checked on something before nightfall when I did! It may be more a bruising trauma soft tissue injury due to a rabbit running into it when a few of them were chasing each other, or I should say a couple of males were chasing her because the heat was on!!! Lots of doves lie around in the bushy grass, and so late afternoon I had seen them running around doing their thing, but later just before dark I did notice some smaller downy feathers strewn about in that general area so when I happened upon the dove 2+2 pretty much made 4!
        “I remember in Bethlehem, sitting in Ruth’s restaurant. Through the window I could see a shepherd herding sheep and goats together.” This is why I was saying I had to ponder while out for the walk about what you had seen in the Holy Land! That seems so surreal and special to me almost like a biblical connotation or connection and like I’ve said in previous commentary with you dots are being connected all of the time; and now this to me is another confirmation from God! I just happened to receive those sheep photos yesterday realizing that photo fit perfectly with my article and then here I was today just immediately upon publishing this latest article you were the first to comment making this beautiful connection to the overall subject; which of course the photo of the young Valais Black Nosed lamb now took on greater meaning when I realized the photo was one of the best in my inventory and a great idea fitting the overall theme of this topic being that we humans are the lost lambs of course figuratively speaking of the utmost importance to God, having been produced as decedents of Adam and Eve after their fall. So significant to me is how you brought out the deeper symbolism and spiritual significance of the lamb and my writing this article today! Now with so many in our race of beings being scattered and following many destructive paths and in most cases totally defiant of God, I see this whole connection to the gentle lambs fitting the lamb of God Jesus who came that we could live eternally, to be saved, even like my simple act of saving another dove; and that is what the human race is in the greatest need of now, being saved before its too late; yet so much rebellion and destruction is going on which is heading right off the precipice with haste! That sight in Bethlehem must be so clear in your mind and I’m sure you feel a special connection to the Holy Land with added dimension because of memories like that which I think was meant to be! I’m very inspired by that experience you had and truly appreciate you sharing it here; while of course thanking God for these amazing opportunities he provides for us to learn, share and become aware of His working in our lives in such mysterious ways!
        Your closing I absolutely agree 100% and think you said precisely the right thing to help take into account from all of this we shared! “May our Lord continue to grant us his peace, as his plan for this world is unfolding.” 🤗 Thank you again Sally! 🤗🙏

      4. Hi Lawrence ! Glad that you enjoyed a great hike. Those killdeer birds are beautiful, I was looking at pictures of them.
        Mourning doves are my favourites – such peaceful creatures. God sees the things we do to help his creation- like saving gentle doves.
        We have a new daily visitor to our house . He is a tiny brown sparrow, who picks up tiny bits of treats that our Seagulls, Scott and Sarah leave behind.
        He is so small, we named him Tiny.
        The scriptures tell us that God’s eye is on the sparrow, and he notices the welfare of each one of them.

        And so, he cares for us too, his beloved; the sheep of his pasture.

        Let us continue to pray for our hurting world, and to warn others, as you do in your writing.
        Things will not be returning to ‘normal’ since normal had become outright rebelliousness, and defiance of God’s commandments.
        Thanks for your work for the Lord.🐑

      5. Hi again Sally! Everything you said here was quite remarkably exquisite to me being on point but so poetic while speaking of God’s eye being on the sparrow as He can see all things; which is such an incomprehensible concept to us children of God and yet by faith we know our heavenly Father even cares about that simple little sparrow! What an adorable little baby he must be so beautiful to see, as in my eyes what a brave tiny creature to be venturing probably far and wide to end up on your doorstep! Maybe if the situation allows you’ll have a good photo of Tiny one day and make him even more famous with his image streaming all over the world via the internet! I’m glad to hear that Scott and Sarah are enjoying your treats and spending time with you and your husband daily! I have to agree the doves are so sweet and gentle but o see these killdeers especially the young fledglings like I did today not yet able to fly but a spiting image of the parents just so mini sized; but their call is so endearing, so sweet a call not a tweet! When we really think about it and see the awe and majesty of God’s incredible creation and how much He has produced out of love I ask myself how can there be a love and power that vast and intangible but yet so concerned even for a simple Tiny sparrow too! Like Albert Einstein said he was in awe every day and I have to say I agree with him because the more I think about it all the more blown away I become, it just makes me happy to know He is there and cares, but a bit sad that I’m a lot better than what I am now or good enough to just be where God dwells in His holiness.
        Yea, that’s the big issue when you come right down to it, of just how rebellious the human race has become breaking the commandments constantly all over the planet as if those that do either don’t give a damn or think they have it licked, and what a shock it will be when they will face God for their wanton failures and insults to the actual Almighty! Now that’s a scary thought without any doubt and I hope I’m going to even improve much more as I grow older and closer to my departure from here, so that my chances of being worthy of some praise in His eyes will yet improve that much more to assure I may only need a slap on my wrist and not a good swift kick! We are his beloved sheep as you say and He loves us so much I know, but still we can’t sit on our laurels we must remain vigilant in continually trying to improve ourselves and seek His will for us as faithful servants of the Lord God! Thank you Sally! 🤗
        PS This all really topped off a very nice day so beautifully!

      7. Hi Sally! Oh yes you’re so right about God wanting us to join others in fellowship and be fostering His message of love and salvation! You’ve been doing fabulous then with basic accoutrements and I wouldn’t have known or been the wiser! Yea, you can get a decent pocket camera these days pretty cheap that take really great photos! I actually got lazy about carrying around a larger 35mm SLR camera and decided I liked a pocket one much better for my situation when hiking with the dogs and so on! I was looking online several years ago and checked consumer reports and having been around professional photographer on and off over the years so just by word of mouth I had a pretty good idea what was good and wanted a Nikon at the time but actually bought a much cheaper Samsung ST68 which I sometimes carry with me in a hip belt pouch. The thrifty in me won out or at least like my dad I decided to be practical about the purchase. It’s been very convenient and a handy little camera which captured some very nifty shots over the years. Like I say you do fine already but if you want to step up and shift into overdrive then you have plenty of good options out there! 🤗

        It’s important for older adults like me to take advantage of technology.
        I do online banking, so rarely go into a bank, but when I do, I am sad to see seniors standing in long line-ups. They have never taken advantage of direct deposit, so they come into the bank to cash their cheques and pay their bills. Proper use of technology can make our lives simpler and easier.

We do have it easy in this modern technological era but we also have acquired many new concerns and problems with these advantages so it cuts both ways and I guess some old folks are “set in their ways,” which is OK if they are good with it! “Take the good with the bad,” I figure.

  2. I have found God revealing more and more of the darkness in our world in this time of quarantine. It has brought many tears and anger; it has scared me, but it’s been a wake up call. I’m normally not one to step up and disagree on social media or actively challenge someone (respectfully), but I see God showing me the necessity of pointing out evil, showing the truth, and revealing lies with facts and questions that the mainstream media never get into or touch. I fear God. I strongly feel the end is coming soon. We need to step up and lead people to Jesus. Putting on the full armor of God. Thank you for your post.

    1. Hello Amber! Thank you, and dear God I appreciate your forthrightness and bravery for stepping out of the crowd and speaking your heart in this present state of global turmoil that just escalated exponentially! I’m sorry you’re so scared and you have a great good heart is why you feel that way, I too have some of the same difficulty and sadness going on in me too. I’ve know that things changed back on 9/11 but I think like most people I was ready to just get back to life as usual and wanted to be in my groove again which wasn’t terrible but I admit now wasn’t good enough at least when I think in retrospect how much better I could have and should have done over these ensuing years since then; but being human we aren’t going to be perfect or do our absolute best at all times and just going along to get along at times isn’t best but seems necessary in the way of the world we function within! But my enormous wakeup call came on a more personal level and more stealth-fully than 9/11 headlines and all the frenzy of that events repercussions in our daily lives, like the paradigm shift of air travel that occurred! I used to as a kid just walk into this airport in my community and go talk to the mechanics in some small businesses at their hangers where they worked on different aircraft which I always loved and even took on a flight program for a short time in my college days thinking maybe I would be a professional. I don’t like the taste of flying in a manner of speaking now as it’s been spoiled by evil as its doing to so many basic things we’ve always been comfortable with and enjoyed! Now in recent times this more nefarious personal actual attack upon me by other politically corrupt and jealous human beings who often times are even possessed with evil actually setting out doing actual harm as they did to my personal life and even health all of which proved to me beyond the shadow of any doubt that we are in a major world of hurt and a horrid time if they did this to me a decent guy all of my life protecting all of my sisters when growing up and anyone who was vulnerable; but now due to the evil being so entwined in our society and societal cultures globally these things happen frequently to many even much more innocent persons! I won’t get into sounding like I’m preaching but just the simple fact of how the sanctity of human, life has been cheapened and even reduced to nothing more than tissue to multitudes of people; then we can look at those tyrant communists that are very real and always cooking up sinister objectives and plans which we have all just witnessed on a global scale! This is totally a test of faith now; and you are so absolutely right my friend and sister in Christ Jesus that we must try in whatever ways we can to help others who may not see or try to ignore the stark reality of what is happening in our world around us! God is showing you without a doubt and dots are connecting as you receive confirmation of your faith in Him and His plan unfolding before our eyes! Leading by genuine faith and by example is the strongest or most powerful force in the universe outside of God Himself! Think of it when we are that attuned to Him the actual power of God resides in us via the Holy Spirit and no matter what happens if in that state of grace nothing can take that away or touch our immortal souls that belong to our wonderful loving God Almighty, in His holy name Jesus Christ! Amen.
      Thank you for this so beautiful and inspiring message that honestly touched my heart so purely, it’s from God! Take care and thank you very much.
      I decided to add some additional comments here just in case you or anyone coming along becomes so interested to read what I think is very helpful and relevant to this matter.
      I like how Hannah Arendt said it this way, “Yes, there is a time when good men and women must stand up for what’s right, even when it involves risk, but that moment comes only after evil has already been well established and is powerfully on the move.”
      “Evil is inherently weak.
      The truth is that evil survives by tricking the good into doing its will. Without thousands of basically decent people confused enough to obey, evil would fail quickly.
      “Hannah Arendt” summarized evil this way: The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”
      This is like the Scriptures in Revelation to me saying how God doesn’t want lukewarm but to decide to be either hot or cold! I want to expand on this so very important point which you inspired here Amber; with some scripture and an explanation from a noteworthy site.
      “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of My mouth” (Revelation 3:15-16).

      “Colossae’s cold, fresh mountain water and Hierapolis’s medicinal hot springs outclassed Laodicea’s lukewarm water supply that made people vomit after drinking. Cold water and hot water sources had great personal value. Laodicea’s lukewarm water had the same personal value that complacent members of the Laodicean church had to the cause of Christ. Not much.
      Be Useful
      Revelation 3:15-16 doesn’t teach that Jesus prefers people to hate him or love him, just don’t “sit on the fence.” Jesus doesn’t want anybody to hate him. That common teaching from this passage is not only crazy when you stop and think about it; it’s bad Bible interpretation. Jesus isn’t saying, “any decision is better than indecision.” Jesus is telling us to serve a purpose. Hot water could heal. Cold water could refresh. We should bring a similar blessing to people around us.

      We were meant to serve him. Our actions were meant to embody his values and contribute to his redemptive mission. When we just live for ourselves like the lukewarm water that contributed to the wealth engine of the Laodicean textile industry, we are useless. We lose our purpose while serving ourselves. Jesus is calling us to be hot or to be cold, to embrace our redemptive role in his mission. What are you doing? I’m trying to make my life and my words “cold” for Jesus, refreshing the souls of those lost in a self-reliant rat race.” (reenactingtheway)
      Another excellent simple to the point quote that I love and certainly applies in this tumultuous time very much is by Edmund Burke which he states well, “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”
      Very poignant and to the heart of what I see happening in our world because so many people are doing this that we can all do well to think about this Holy Scripture!
      “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

  3. The following comment I had just written to Matthew regarding a couple of his blog posts and I thought it definitely fits here for anyone interested in reading it!
    You again nailed it Matt! I recently wrote to another blogger who had similar discussion with me regarding how the world has gotten into this present state of secularism and those pushing its agenda to get away with leading humanity by the nose down the road to a slaughter. I’ll share some of what I referred to as extremely well written explanation of how people can serve the beast or evil and not really think that do anything wrong but in most instances by not doing anything or speaking out against these deceivers they are cooperating with the evil thusly serving it!
    Hannah Arendt which I know fits the bill here in this matter you are putting forward! She said it perfectly how evil takes over and has in the past which it is gladly doing now with all of the dumb block heads that don’t care or love sin! The world is going crazy and it has to be stopped or it will be too late!
    Absolutely the Gestapo rule Book is being employed to stop all resistance to the plan of evil that is well advanced already but must be stopped!
    “Yes, there is a time when good men and women must stand up for what’s right, even when it involves risk, but that moment comes only after evil has already been well established and is powerfully on the move.
    Evil is inherently weak.
    The truth is that evil survives by tricking the good into doing its will. Without thousands of basically decent people confused enough to obey, evil would fail quickly.
    “Hannah Arendt” summarized evil this way: The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.
    These people wouldn’t initiate murders by themselves, but in the name of duty, loyalty, unity, and/or the greater good, they cooperate with evil and give it their strength. But each plays a small part—none of them stretches so far that they’d have to contemplate the final effects of their actions.
    In the 20th century, however, the actions of such people led directly to the murders of 260 million people. And they did this precisely by avoiding decisions… by merely obeying.
    People think of murder, lying, and robbery as sins, but none of those has nearly the death toll of obedience.
    Basically decent men and women obey agents of evil for very mundane reasons. The process often goes like this:
    1. Being confused and intimidated, they look for the center of the pack.
    2. They try not to make waves.
    3. They learn that they can avoid making waves best if they adopt the perspectives of their overlords. So they run the overlords’ slogans through their minds as a default program.
    In the end, these people don’t make up their minds. Rather, they take on the minds of their overlords and do their will.
    And so, the vast majority of evil done on Earth traces back to minds and wills that have been abandoned to fear and laid on the Altar of Obedience.” Hannah Arendt
    This is the real deal and such powerful language that cuts to the chase and right to the door of truth!
    “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke
    I know this is a long explanation, but I feel it should be helpful in hopefully opening some eyes to the simple plain truth that our world is spinning out of control on so many fronts because for too long people have sat on the sidelines being lazy saying let someone else worry about that or they figure by just going along with the powerful officials they can gain favor and get some help with one little problem or another down the road. They basically are passing the buck or going along to get along! In so doing they actually are making a decision to not care enough and to just accept whatever the master manipulators will push upon a willing public! Nobody wants to get their hands dirty so they take the easy way out and allow these monsters to get a python snake’s grip around their foolish necks!
    To me this is not taking a stand for Jesus Christ either by giving into evil that will eventually destroy the Church once they have truly taken control of the peoples will. We need to be willing to stand up for what is right and denounce vehemently what is obviously sinful, destructive and diabolical seeking to take human rights and freedom away from the masses making them slaves to the new world order.
    Many as it states in Holy Scriptures would serve the beast in the End Time and this is how it is happening right now, many willing accepting this evil or some are too lost to have their wits about them enough to have a clue they are being possessed and snuffed out!
    I will fight to the death if I must down the road to stand up for what is right and serve my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
