I definitely agree about the more questions than answers! I personally think too many obsess to much over this topic. I really hate both the scammy profiteering by āexpertsā hawking their latest speculative book and the attitude that any inconveniences to living the Christian Life in the West are surefire āsigns of the timesā and mean Christās return is imminent- but decades of hardcore Christian Persecution throughout history and in other parts of the world somehow donāt ācountā.
I found this article the other day that sums up my position pretty well:
(TMC) Having actually read Piperās articles when they first came out, this headline is straight up slander. I think Piperās critique is not as robust as I would prefer and he seems to miss what CRT advocates mean by certain terms and words, but he certainly is not ādefendingā CRT by any means!
In the first article he does caution against jumping to the conclusion that because someone is pointing out injustice that they therefore are advocating for CRT. This caution is necessary as I have seen multiple people engage in such behavior. Not bearing false witness is part of basic Christianity.
(TMC) @Mike Iām pretty sure the backlog of so many tests is what causes the delay for average folks. Understandably, Governors, Presidents, and Presidential Candidates get their results expedited. ā
Acts 22:25-29 25 And as they bound him with thongs, Paul said unto the centurion that stood by, Is it lawful for you to scourge a man that is a Roman, and uncondemned? 26 When the centurion heard that, he went and told the chief captain, saying, Take heed what thou doest: for this man is a Roman. 27 Then the chief captain came, and said unto him, Tell me, art thou a Roman? He said, Yea. 28 And the chief captain answered, With a great sum obtained I this freedom. And Paul said, But I was free born. 29 Then straightway they departed from him which should have examined him: and the chief captain also was afraid, after he knew that he was a Roman, and because he had bound him.
Acts 25:11 11 For if I be an offender, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die: but if there be none of these things whereof these accuse me, no man may deliver me unto them. I appeal unto Caesar.
I see no reason why we may not appeal to our Constitution. š¤
(TMC) The details of QAnon theories are completely nutty- but the issues of pedophilia, satanism, and the leftās no holds barred hatred of the President are real enough.
What I donāt get is how is this any more ādangerousā and āsatanicā than all the other conspiracy theories out there? And isnāt all this attention just going to fuel it? I mean where was all this fuss for the Illuminati/ 9/11 Truther/ Sandy Hook False Flag folks? š§š¤Ø
(TMC) @Ladybug Exactly! The virus is real, and dangerous for some folks, but I think Fauci is evil and in a just world, should be in jail for funding unethical āgain of functionā manipulation of bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan lab. š”. And donāt forget it was his model that encouraged governors to put Covid positive patients in Nursing Homes so the hospitals wouldnāt be āoverrunā. š”
