The test of today

Of course, even love of one’s neighbour is only observed theoretically and as a means of signalling that you are on the right side. Incidentally, I find that loving your distant neighbour is now used as an excuse to pay less attention to your near one, demonstrating that love has little to do with it and is just used as an excuse to dismantle traditional structures of truth and rob them of their spiritually protective qualities.

So modern liberal doctrines might have some truth in them but it is the truth of a counterfeit rather than the genuine article. Indeed liberalism is best seen as precisely that, a counterfeit of Christianity, a Christianity flattened out, secularised and brought down to this world. It was very probably specifically designed to replace the real thing by apparently retaining the good bits

superficially

superficial Christianity

but throwing out the superstitions. In fact, it does the very opposite and keeps the shell while discarding the nut.

BYO nut.

But then those who oppose liberal doctrines must take care that they do not fall into the extreme of denying these have any validity at all, even on a relative level. If you oppose liberalism, as you should, you must not let that push you into the opposite extreme.

Keep philia.

Remember there are two commandments, love God and love man. The latter must be seen in the light of the former but if you neglect the latter then you become almost as bad as those who neglect or deny God. This too is part of the test of today. Don’t let the lies of the enemy lead you into the over-reaction of rejecting the reality of the truth he presents in a deformed and corrupted state….

there is now no excuse for being a Leftist, its falsity and its evil are there for all to see – in the foreground and in the background, in books and in our daily lives and face to face conversations.

Every single Left Wing prediction has failed. Count ’em.
Every. Single. One.

While a century, or two, ago the pretensions of atheism, materialism, radicalism, modernism etc. were superficially plausible – now they are not.

Assuming human beings have their eyes open.

Generally, I have found them to be walking around with both eyes shut.

They don’t want to see.

It would be inconvenient.

They might need to change and self-improve in real ways and actually give up things that are bad for them.

Not the January selfie model of self-improvement.

I’m considered very good-looking and even I think the selfie thing has gotten silly.

This is a time when those on the side of Good should not fear: fear is the motivation of evil, not Good. Evil is afraid because it is ultimately unnatural – a web of lies – and must be sustained artificially by energy, effort, control…”

Love the truth and hate the Father of Lies. Now..

Someone help me down from this pulpit.
