Culture of Death

There is an old saying that politics is downstream of culture, meaning the values and ethics expressed through societal norms, eventually become political ones. I generally believe this to be true, although things can flow both ways. Today, we are living in profoundly antihuman times and I suspect the main driver of this is that the large numbers of people having walked away from God over the years is finally showing up full bore in our political system.

In a nutshell, the dominant culture has turned against God and so our politics have too. And since to be anti-God is to be antihuman, many political policies go directly against human flourishing and enrichment.

This downward trend had been happening for awhile, but reached its nexus during Covid, when we were forced to become lab rats for involuntary experimentation and all of life was reduced to avoiding a virus. Nearly everything that made us human and life worth living was taken away, bringing immense and preventable harm to the most vulnerable and defenseless members of society.

I don’t know if the Covid era has hardened people further, or merely accelerated what was already there, but it’s hard not to look at our world today and see a culture of death. A few examples:

  • The newly elected Senator from Georgia, Raphael Warnock, is a Southern Baptist Pastor and profoundly pro, no limit, abortion. In fact he knows that, “Even God approves of abortion.” Now, there are many, many extreme pro abortion politicians, but claiming “God approves“, or, in another interview, “it’s what Jesus would do” is a new level of repulsiveness.
  • A Canadian fashion company recently released an assisted suicide ad, under the guise of “promoting beauty. Ghoulish and exploitive yes, but not surprising considering Canada has made it legal for you to have yourself killed for almost any reason.
  • Doctors, politicians and hospital groups are actively promoting surgical disfiguration of otherwise healthy teenagers under the guise of transgenderism. Those of us that speak out about this get demonized and possibly canceled right out of the culture. This is a complete failure our young people who need psychiatric help and support, not irreversible surgeries and an enabling of harmful behavior.
  • The outlawing of fossil fuels in the name of saving the planet, based on nothing more than junk science. Literally everything in the world is either made from, or runs on fossil fuels. Fossil fuels produce cheap, abundant energy, which has created the greatest rise in living standards since the world began. Getting rid of them or exorbitantly increasing their costs creates mass suffering and death, there is no way around this, yet government leaders seem intent on trying.
  • Soft on crime laws like no cash bail and releasing violent prisoners from jail. This is not social justice in any way, shape or form. It’s done purely for political gain and creates misery for law abiding citizens, particularly ones living in low income areas. It also does not help criminals, again it’s merely enabling bad behavior and preventing those that need it most from rehabilitation.
  • Allowing homeless people to live rough out on the streets, continuing to do drugs, sell their bodies and live like animals, endlessly searching for their next hit. If they happen upon a federally funded housing program, they can continue to drink/do drugs because the government doesn’t think they are worthy enough to or capable of living productive, ethical lives. The homeless in this country are basically either left to die in the streets or sent off to die in what is essentially a government subsidized coffin.

There is much, much more I could add, but the bottom line is our culture and politics are steeped in anti human thought, philosophy and behavior, which is why everything is so chaotic. Like the yeast of the Pharisees Jesus warned about, once a little bit of evil takes hold, it spreads rapidly and completely changes whatever allows it in.

People are committing horrible acts of evil right out in the open and so many others just don’t seem to care. They live apathetic lives and distract themselves with entertainment and vacations, feeling good about themselves for having voted for the very same people that are wreaking such havoc.

Justice will come but it can be slow. God has a plan and because it comes from Him we know that it is good. And that is about all we can know for sure.

Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
do not fret—it leads only to evil.
For those who are evil will be destroyed,
but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land
.” 

                ~ Psalm 37:8-9

    The Bible is literal and frankly the only truth we have right now.

    Pride goes before destruction as those who have taken the clot shot without questioning it are finding out with myocarditis and bells palsy or simply dropping dead.

    Isaiah 5:20 where it tells you of the inversion as good will be viewed as evil, and evil is good is a FACT.

    I continue to be called a conspiracy theorist and my personal pronouns are Told/You/So.

  4. This is very powerful and nails it. Since I live in Georgia, I am ashamed that we re-elected Warnock.

    This is it: “Justice will come but it can be slow. God has a plan and because it comes from Him we know that it is good. And that is about all we can know for sure.”

    Shalom!

      Thanks Michael. I was wondering about how Conservatives in GA felt about Walker. I mean he wasn’t the best candidate, but surely heads and shoulders above Warnock, right?

      Michael, I live in Ga. too and there’s 2 counties; Fulton and another one, that is already being investigated for voter fraud and a couple of arrests for stuffing ballot boxes. With the results being so close hopefully Walker will rise above that false teacher in the end. Either way he’ll be judged by our Lord and it won’t be pretty.

    This is a must read from Tricia.

    As she says: ‘Justice will come but it can be slow. God has a plan and because it comes from Him we know that it is good. And that is about all we can know for sure.”

    “Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
    do not fret—it leads only to evil.

    but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.”

  6. Amen, Tricia. We either follow the One who came to give us life and life abundant or we inevitably create our own culture of death. I’m not sure “why” this happens but in part we lose our moral compass, and we falsely believe we innately good. We believe we are better then God, even better then our own science and theories of evolution.

    All these things you’ve mentioned are the result of do gooders out doing good and saving the world. They’re helping pregnant women not feel scared and alone by providing abortion, they’re helping the suffering by advocating assisted suicide, they are making space for addict’s lifestyle choices, and they are protecting criminals from having to experience the justice system.

    Such things all sound crazy to me and they are, but they make complete sense if you perceive the world through your own will with little or no awareness of cause and effect. Most of us do that to some extent, so we will perhaps unwittingly enable someone’s dysfunction in order to avoid dealing with our own feelings. about it. It’s not sacrificial love however, it is not putting the needs and well being of others before our own.

      Thanks IB for your thoughtful comment. Oh my goodness we could write novels based on it, yes? I agree with what you say, people have transplanted God’s knowledge, compassion, wisdom, etc…with their own with predictable results. There are more than a few in power though who couldn’t care less about doing what even they “feel” is right.” It’s all about power gain for them and these are the most destructive types.

        For satan to control the world as he does, he must make it so humans cannot comprehend simple FACTS so they can not read the bible correctly, and that is what I have found with your typical Christian unfortunately. Organized religion is a control mechanism for the masses. While I grew up a Lutheran I have repudiated what I was taught, and as would Martin Luther himself who would be nailing thesis’s on the door of the current Lutheran Church also.

        The ignorance of FACTS like the poison ingredients in the clot shot which are said in the propaganda msm as misinformation yet are merely the truth, is exactly what the Brave New World is.

        While I have always known KKK slavery democrats are stupid, I did not realize just how dumb they were. On social media many moons ago when I realized lefties could not comprehend what a simple FACT is, I told a lefty they could not comprehend them. Of course he could he said with Pride! I told him we would not be having this conversation if his mother had aborted him. He responded that was my opinion!

        I was completely flabbergasted and realized just how bad it was and I have been try to wake people up ever since. But the erroneous label of conspiracy theorist is put on people who tell the truth so people will not listen and because of the cognitive dissonance it is effective. Being tactful doesn’t work as just telling the truth a few times breaks down the barriers. My desire for the truth is much greater than caring for anyone’s feelings in the least.

        Wisdom comes from fearing God and not man, and ignorance comes from having pride in your programmed beliefs. It is that simple yet so difficult as none of us ever want to admit we are wrong.

        Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.

        The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off!

    Great post as always.
    A culture of death pretending to care about life and to put the highest priority on saveing lives.
    Because it’s a culture of death, all measures supposed to stop death by a virus resulted only in more death.
    “Antihuman” may be even too soft a word. They hate humanity for sure.

    Just have to comment on the happenings on Orwell’s animal farm as Grant Wahl the soccer journalist who tried to get into the Qatari match with a rainbow Pride Flag on his shirt last week.

    Grant was fully clot shotted and boosted and now is completely protected since he dropped dead yesterday. The experts are completely baffled obviously all over Orwell’s farm and have decided to dig up the outhouse to see if they can connect any dots.

    Grant was one of the stupider animals who could not get past the letter A of the alphabet!
    FACTS about the poison ingredients in the clot shot obviously were irrevelant to Grant since he could not comprehend then..

    Grant the duck is now dead so he is fully protected so he will no longer get sick!

    See, the death shot worked as designed!!

        Obviously! All of their meetings are held in Nellie the cows stall in Orwell’s barn also!

        Some members of the committee however complain of it smelling which incensed Greta humbug the social justice warrior for clean manure that she burst out at them and said brazenly “HOW DARE YOU!”

        This prompted a year long investigation by “experts” on this Sudden cow pie syndrome” where the scientific study was baffled on the cause of said smell. Anyone who stated cow pies smell was dubbed a conspiracy theorist and extremist as vegetable Biden tasked some social media influencers from tik tok to quash misinformation about cow pies smelling.

        Any YouTube video that stated cow pies smell quickly was branded as disinformation and a wikipewdia link to each of these videos stated cow pies are safe and perfume like.

        The farm animals were all pleased with this approach and slept soundly in their cage they had no idea even existed.

    Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are where the US and Britain are intended to be in just a few years. In Canada right now, refusing the Loyalty Vaxx is grounds for CPS to remove children from homes. Children of those involved in the protests last February have also been targeted for removal. Check out this atrocity in New Zealand:

    Yes, it’s happening here too BTW. John Kerry was complaining to the Media this week that those countries had made more progress in implementing the Great Reset and that we need to ratchet up our efforts.
