    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

The Long Term Effects Of Secularism

Quoting Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse:

We cannot sustain ourselves economically because the Western democracies are committing financial suicide with federal spending and entitlement programs that they then push off onto future generations instead of paying today.

We in the democratic West are also committing demographic suicide by having so few children that we are not replacing ourselves, therefore reducing the size of the future generations we hope will pay our bills.

And let’s not even consider the problem of multiculturalism, which teaches that our own civilization is no better and probably worse than any other. This ideology robs us of the confidence to instill our core values in the next generation.

By contrast, the Christian version of Western civilization had no trouble sustaining itself in each of these areas. It is an open question whether exclusive secularism can sustain itself.

Little Green Christians And The Big Green Lie

From the desk of Barry Napier:

Thousands of ordinary people have fallen for the Big Green Lie. They know nothing of the real science behind environmentalism, and only repeat what Al Gore and Pals tell them. These greens are superficial; they are ignorant of the facts but follow the trend. If it wasn’t environmentalism it would be something else – maybe mushroom growing, or wearing bow ties

This is because the majority are sheep. That’s why the elite smirkingly refer to them as ‘the masses’ and why they are manipulated by propaganda. They do whatever is in fashion… and the latest fashion is to be green. No real reason, but it makes them accepted by their peers; simple group dynamics. It is also why, no matter how much counter-evidence they are presented with, they will ignore it – they prefer being one of the crowd rather than wise.

Am I trying to be superior? No, but I do know what I am talking about. (which is a fact, not arrogance) I am just stating truths about the human psyche. People will follow no matter what the outcome is. Make them feel they are part of something special and they’ll run ‘til they drop; they’ll carry banners in Copenhagen; they’ll scorn those who have proofs they are wrong; they’ll pay governments huge taxes; they’ll lower their heating and pay through the nose for energy. They just want to be accepted! Sad.

And this is what is happening in Christian circles. By that, I mean people who claim to be Christians, and who claim to believe the Bible. This is astonishing and very odd, because Christians are supposed to be honest and believers of truth. Yet, here they are, running fast to join the greens, despite the frauds, lies and deceptions.

Worse, they claim the Bible is green, and use it to batter other Christians into submission. In this way they become the religious arm of environmentalism, the Inquisitors. Which is weird, because hard-core environmentalism is out to get Christians! One of their deepest aims is to destroy Christianity (and Islam, or any religion with a transcendent ‘god’ or God)!

In other words, green Christians are committing suicide. They cannot bear being outside the mainstream of opinion, even when it destroys them. They run fast like frightened deer, into the nets of the catchers, quoting non-green passages from the Bible. Very odd indeed.
