Another “note” on Conspiracies

“Why do the nations…”

      –from Handel’s Messiah

Psalm 2 (NIV)
Why do the nations conspire 
  and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up
  and the rulers band together
  against the Lord and against 
  his anointed, saying,
 “Let us break their chains
    and throw off their shackles.”

The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
  the Lord scoffs at them.
  He rebukes them in his anger
    and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
“I have installed my king
  on Zion, my holy mountain.”

I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:
  He said to me, “You are my son;
    today I have become your father.
  Ask me,
    and I will make the nations your inheritance,
    the ends of the earth your possession.
  You will break them with a rod of iron;
    you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

  Therefore, you kings, be wise;
    be warned, you rulers of the earth.
    Serve the Lord with fear
      and celebrate his rule with trembling.
  Kiss his son, or he will be angry
    and your way will lead to your destruction,
  for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
    Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

Still enjoying the theme? Here’s more from Handel’s Messiah.

“The Trumpet Shall Sound…”

1 Corinthians 15:52-53
For the trumpet will sound, 
  the dead will be raised imperishable, 
  and we will be changed. 
For the perishable must clothe itself 
  with the imperishable, 
    and the mortal with immortality.

Take heart dear readers,
the Lord Almighty is on His throne.
Pleasant dreams tonight. ~ TD

Regarding Conspiracy Theories

FEMA Camps, Freemasons, Illuminati, Bohemian Grove, False Flag, and all their vile cousins are terms that haunt us (me). They sometimes make sleep hard to find. Some people whistle thru the graveyard; I prefer to renew my courage with God’s word and His fellowship.

Conspiracy is nothing new.

Serpent

Serpent

Ever since the expulsion from the Garden, humans have exhibited a tendency toward conspiracy. In fact, Eve’s and Adam’s original sin was a conspiracy with the serpent, intended to challenge their Creator.

In the book of Proverbs, after the prologue and call to honor the advice of parents, the first “nuts and bolts” piece of advice is to avoid entering into conspiracy!

Proverbs 1 verses 10-19
My son, if sinful men entice you,
    do not give in to them.
  If they say, “Come along with us;
    let’s lie in wait for innocent blood,
      let’s ambush some harmless soul;
  let’s swallow them alive, like the grave,
    and whole, like those who go down to the pit;
  we will get all sorts of valuable things
    and fill our houses with plunder;
   cast lots with us;
    we will all share the loot”—
my son, do not go along with them,
    do not set foot on their paths;
  for their feet rush into evil,
    they are swift to shed blood.
How useless to spread a net
    where every bird can see it!
  These men lie in wait for their own blood;
    they ambush only themselves!
  Such are the paths of all who go 
    after ill-gotten gain;
      it takes away the life 
        of those who get it.

For me, this sheds an encouraging light on those who choose to resist conspiracies.

7 Reasons Why Norwegian Mass Murderer Is NOT a Christian

UPDATE (July 26):

  • Death toll revised to 76.
  • Breivik’s attorney says the killer used some kind of drugs before the massacre — drugs that were designed to keep him strong and awake.
  • Attorney also says Breivik “hates democracy and all who believe in it.”

While the MSM are yakking on and on about Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik being a “right-wing Christian fundamentalist,” World Net Daily (WND) has done the homework by reading Breivik’s 1,500-page manifesto, which he had helpfully posted online for anyone to read.

Breivik is the 32-year-old psychopath who, last Friday, July 22, killed more than 87 people in Norway — 7 in a bombing in Oslo; more than 80 at a Labor Party youth retreat on the island of Utoya.

Based on WND’s research and other analyses, here are the reasons why Breivik is *NOT* a Christian, even less a Christian fundamentalist:

1. He’s a Darwinist: “As for the Church and science, it is essential that science takes an undisputed precedence over biblical teachings.” Answering a question he himself asks, “What should be our civilisational [sic] objectives, how do you envision a perfect Europe?”, Breivik’s answer is hardly that of a Christian: “rationalist thought (a certain degree of national Darwinism) should be the fundament [sic] of our societies.”

2. He says he’s not religious: “Regarding my personal relationship with God, I guess I’m not an excessively religious man.” Over and over again, Breivik goes out of his way to make clear to readers of his manifesto that he is not motivated by Christian faith: “I’m not going to pretend I’m a very religious person, as that would be a lie. I’ve always been very pragmatic and influenced by my secular surroundings and environment…. Religion is a crutch for many weak people…I have not yet felt the need to ask God for strength, yet.”

3. He doubts the existence of God [some Christian he is!]: “I went from moderately agnostic to moderately religious.”

4. He does not pray: In discussing his preparation for the mass murder, he writes: “I have been working on this book [the manifesto] now for almost two years. It’s essential that you reward yourself and enjoy life in this period…. I have been practising [sic] certain rituals and meditation to strengthen my beliefs and convictions. For me, the most common ritual is taking a long walk listening to my favourite [sic] music on my iPod.”

5. He wants Europe to remain Christian because of cultural, not religious, reasons.  Breivik objects to Islam because he sees Europe as being taken over by Muslims, and Europeans as losing their identity. Breivik’s solution is that Norway and Europe return and preserve their historical culture, which is Christian. As Breivik explains:

“As this is a cultural war, our definition of being a Christian does not necessarily constitute that you are required to have a personal relationship with God or Jesus…. The European cultural heritage, our norms (moral codes and social structures included), our traditions and our modern political systems are based on Christianity…. It is not required that you have a personal relationship with God or Jesus in order to fight for our Christian cultural heritage and the European way…. So no, you don’t need to have a personal relationship with God or Jesus to fight for our Christian cultural heritage. It is enough that you are a Christian-agnostic or a Christian atheist (an atheist who wants to preserve at least the basics of the European Christian cultural legacy (Christian holidays, Christmas and Easter)).”

6. Breivik claims membership in the Freemasons (Manifesto, p. 1369), which many Christians (especially the Catholic Church) consider to be a cultic organization.

7. Breivik supports abortion in cases of rape and “if the baby has mental or physical disabilities.” (Manifesto, pg 1179)

To conclude, it’s an insult to Christianity to call Anders Breivik a right-wing Christian fundamentalist. When Breivik identifies himself as “100-percent Christian,” he is referring to himself as being part of the historical European Christian CULTURE. He is not Christian in the religious sense of the word. He doesn’t even believe that there is a God, even less that Jesus Christ is God.

Catholic commentator and media personality Michael Coren observes:

“No intelligent person, and certainly no informed Christian, would regard this as the statement of a follower of Christ, let alone a fundamentalist follower. So why the hysterical boasts that he was a Christian? Obvious. It inflates the bubble of propaganda and lies. So different to when yet another Islamist attack occurs – four over the weekend by the way – and media does everything it can to distance the killers from Islam.”
