“The past is a foreign country, they do things differently there.”– L.P. Hartley, “The Go-Between,” (1955).
I write this short article at risk of being controversial, or perhaps, being misunderstood. The objective is to exhort men to think hard, really hard! We’re halfway through the year, by the grace of God.
As the year progresses, it seems the government, let me call them for what they truly are—Totalitarians—are more determined to make this “virus” about them, not the public. In fact, it’s not about the virus anymore, it never was! Ah, I hear. A conspiracy theorist emerges?
Well, some of the “conspiracies” are doing a great job of revealing the reality. I’ll leave it at that, then.
The government is not man’s friend, but a pledged enemy of them that dare to question it, more so, logically challenge some of its decisions. I do not believe at the present time that the government has the best interest of its people at heart; that is not true.
The only interest the government(s) are focused upon is that of retaining and maintaining power and stealing God-given freedoms by way of tyranny.
The virus, sadly, is a means to the end. Or put another way, the worldwide lockdowns is carefully developed to cater for the personal goals at peril of those that can’t speak for themselves or them that are threatened if they dare “question” the state. I’ll go so far as to say here, I’m sickened by the government.
I have struggled to pray for those in these offices. And when I do pray, I pray either they see what they are doing is evil [and reform]; or else, God removes them from office in whatever way possible—even through death.
Yes, I’ve been tempted to pray the impercatory Psalms on some leaders—not because I’m holy than them, no. But because they are determined to go against God. Again, either their hearts are softened, or they get completely removed from their positions.
Another thing, I’ve never seen such a divide amongst the so-called medical experts regarding their analysis of covid. For example, masks are effective, masks are not effective, the vaccine is a guarantee from not getting covid, the vaccine is not a guarantee even if you get it, etc. Who’s playing who, seriously?
Now people are made to be suspicious of each other,
‘Hey, have you taken the jab?’
‘Why aren’t you putting on a mask?’
For my part, I believe that decision is mine to make; not forced to do so. It’s an irony. Actually, it’s hypocritical that these same voices that were once upon a time championing “my body, my choice” anthem are now demanding folks to adhere by their jabs, etc.
If it was a choice back then, it remains a choice now; that is, as to regards with the current situation.
I know these words may come out too strong, but I’m allowed to think. And I know they are most feared/hated who dare to challenge the popular opinion of the mass. I respect everyone’s view, but I’ll not blindly follow them. That’s the difference we all ought to strive for.
Of course we’re seeing folks silenced for speaking up. Cancel culture. Others, sadly, go missing for challenging these insitutions that are known to ever contradict themselves and have proven to be enemies of God and his people.
The only thing that is true now is that the government has a BIG MASK that is called manipulation. If they remove it, they fear the fresh air of logic and reason will choke them to death. It is what it is.
I fear no man, but God. If we die, we die. But let us die knowing that we spoke up and provoked sound reason where it is welcomed. At the end of the day, God wins. I still maintain, it’s not about the virus, it never was! Napoleon’s succinct observation will suffice here,
“History is a set of lies that people have agreed upon.”
You’re wise and know how to apply.
