Let me explain to you a trap that many awake Christians fall into. I am sounding the trumpet on this one lest ye error. I have said this before in my God Math post. The greatest mistake you can make as a human being is to declare something 100% false when indeed it is 100% true. I am reminded of scripture. I’ll do you one better. I am reminded of a commandment …
Thou shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. – Exodus 20:16
Bearing false witness is a grievous error. Now not so far removed from bearing false witness is gossip. The difference is gossip is hit or miss bearing false witness. Gossipers are false witnesses by sheer odds. On the times a gossiper is wrong they are bearing false witness. You should be working on reducing your gossip to a minimum as bearing false witness is sin you don’t need added to your charge.
I am seeing well intended Christians claim certain tragic news events are totally staged. I am seeing well intended Christians claim certain tragic news events are 1000% real. Do you see what is happening here? We all want to be right. But we are becoming gossipers. And if we are gossipers inherently we will be in the wrong. In those wrong times we are bearing false witness and we are sinning.
Perhaps you have read Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy. Perhaps not. I am well aware Dante is the pride of the Catholics. My Christianity is not Dante’s Christianity. However I do respect how this man was able to rank sin in cohesive manner. That accomplishment I think is quite brilliant. There is a phrase Dante uses in his writings that I have never forgotten. Dante uses the phrase “sowers of discord”. These are people who rip apart communities via staged events! They are in circle 8 in hell (fraud). Ladies and gentlemen there are only 9 circles in Dante’s version of hell. Only circle 9 (betrayal) is more heinous. Circle 7 is violence by the way. I can totally believe there are sowers of discord combining violence, fraud, and betrayal in evil flash point events. I can totally see them serving it up to us on a platter via big media as fake news – at least sometimes. The issue is I am not so sure when. And I am telling you right now you are going down the path of the gossiper if you are judging which news events are real and which are fake from afar.
I am not here to tell you which major news events are real. I am not here to tell you which are staged. I will tell you the following is impossible to me. You cannot have a society composed of mostly unsaved people and expect everyone to behave rationally. Some of these tragic events are very real. But which events are real? And where does that leave us as a society?
I believe that yes a wicked person can totally shoot up a crowd sometimes by their own warped mind. It also makes perfect sense to me that on occasions powerful people / organizations fund a psycho to shoot up a crowd. I can also reason no one was killed but a fake news story breaks reporting a fabricated killing with fabricated “evidence”. All of these scenarios seem tremendously logical to me. How about you?
Consider this as Christians. It was never our job to accurately determine and declare each and every news event as factual or fabricated. You are going off the rails if you do this – unless you are a powerful prophet of the Lord of Hosts getting feedback from the Lord constantly on what is real and what is staged. Most of us are not in this category. Just knowing some of these news stories are fabricated is incredibly intelligent of you. The Bible says the following about judging the hearts of men and women …
Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;) – 1 Kings 8:39 KJV
One final thing in closing. If you believe that in the Old Testament they sacrificed their children to Molech (Jeremiah 32:35). If you believe the story that the ancient Babylonian priests of Ishtar sacrificed babies and dyed Easter eggs in their blood (where Easter to this day is named after germanic Eostre which is named after babylonian Ishtar). If you believe that the Satanists sacrifice humans on many Satanic holidays including Halloween (google “list of Satanic holidays” and you will find details of this). All of these are very awake things to believe …
Then why would you not believe that powerful sowers of discord can stage events but kill real people?
That is called a ritual. Many of you don’t seem to recognize what a ritual is.
You are witnessing real sacrifices people – at least some of the time.
