How do we get there?
“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands…”Revelation 20:4
Theologians have speculated ad nauseam what could cause such punishment. They usually suggest that it’s a failure to kowtow to the Beast, to convert to his religion. Then, they point fingers at religions known for such behaviors today.
IMO, that’s because they don’t understand worship. They have taught us to wrongly segregate worship to an action derived from a hymnal or location of activity most routinely put into use on Sunday mornings.
Worship is much simpler than that. It is a way of living, a fundamental philosophy that drives expected behavior.
but they mixed among the nations and learned their deeds; they served their idols, which were a snare to them.Psalm 106:35-36
Here’s a thought. Consider the segregation currently being acted against the recently declared unclean: it is literally happening around the world. Medical concentration camps are being erected and put into use – for a disease that is 99% survivable – for which there are proven, non-vax remedies which themselves have been demonized by those we elected to protect us.
Where does it end? Does it ever end?
I’ll suggest that it does not end. We’ve crossed a threshold; we’re sliding down the slippery slope prepared by those who came before.
In our canon of law, we have a remedy for those considered a threat to society.
It’s called capital punishment.
The segue is this: the threat of capital punishment is the ultimate form of making philosophically compliant citizens. It is the ultimate behavior modification for keeping model citizens – who just want their normal lives back – safe from others who choose a different path, who would suggest for themselves my body, my choice.
You probably think I’m a bit loony. I don’t blame you.
However, if you had told me 10, 20, or 30 years ago that Germany would in 2021 AGAIN define unclean citizens and AGAIN segregate them from society, or if you had asserted that Australia would lock the same kinds of people in concentration camps, I would have called you nuts too.
“And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve,” whether they be the gods of your officials who oppose freedom, or the gods of the Marxists, in whose land you dwell. “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
