My “open letter” to a post from a girl depressed about being “ugly”

January 31, 2021

Women are selective too, on what mates they will choose to be with. Poverty is kind of glorified in many romances as well as appearance.

I sort of considered ending myself over the “playful” insults of high schooler making fun of me. I had a strange resemblance to Albert Newman, the Mad Magazine character, and the banter embarrassed me and had me thinking I was ugly. And my embarrassment at others’ actions and comments made it worse. Even the girls made fun of me, they enjoyed making me turn read. But I was interested in learning, eventually got into the local Ivy League university, and was among intellectual peers who were past the adolescence. There i had a first lasting relationship.

But more important is that I lost the self-consciousness. In my time as missionary in Puerto Rico, in a work associated with the “Jesus People” movement of the 1960s, there was one sister who did not have a standard “beautiful” face, but that girl walked with the sexiest strut and emanated a confidence in her bearing that made her one of the most attractive girls I have ever met. (My wife is the exception).

In my history I worked a bit with a couple, in which the husband was one of the handsomest guys on the planet. She, not so much at all, to be nice. But guess which one was the jealous one? Yep, him.

Just decide. Remember what God told Samuel: Man looketh upon the outward appearance; God looketh on the heart.

Also, learn to make a habit of concern for other people. If you haven’t been born again, let Jesus in, accept his victory over guilt, sin, death, and hell and his gift of life. Practice his commandment to love others as you would have them love you.

Now that I have done this and gone on to be missionary for many years, life is better than before, than ever. Like a rich man once told his suicidal daughter, distraught at the emptiness after living a wild life in Europe: “If you have to throw your life away, at least throw it at something worth doing.”

Open source is NOT socialist

January 31, 2021

Open source is neither directly nor indirectly socialist, in the common sense used today. One definition at merriam-webster applies to the kind of sharing the early Christians had as described in Acts 2 and Acts 4, which was a voluntary sharing. That was even stronger than today’s “socialists” advocate, because even the shirt one wore was communal property.

Open Source a based on the philosophy that ideas are not personal property in the same sense as your body, or your shirt, or your house. Government meddling in “intellectual property” has not led to more innovation overall, but to stifling. A major percentage of patents granted today are “defensive patents”, meaning ideas that are so obvious or commonly used that a corporation decides to get the patent on it just so they can keep using it, but they don’t even bother enforcing it. OR, they use it to make mutual agreements to share a pool of them to avoid costly trouble.

Richard Stallman’s “free software” as in “free speech not free beer”, is a little bit “stronger” in preventing including open source in an opaque proprietary software. Mac’s OS is like that, a derivative of BSD but where the code is not transparently available.

Sign of the times

January 22, 2021

Jesus rebuked the Pharisees because they pretended to be so spiritual but couldn’t discern the signs of the times.

Looks like the Guardsmen in D. C. from all 50 states don’t trust Leviathan, don’t trust the ruling class.

What is fascism?

January 18, 2021

Lew Rockwell takes the comprehensive list of attributes of fascism, and makes them relevant:

Conservatives (not neo-) and especially libertarians are the real anti-fascists.

Down with the White Supremacists! Hear me out..

January 12, 2021

What white privilege?

Soros, Rockefellers, Bill Gates, Jim Comey, those guys have “white privilege” but they don’t share it with us plebes. Clueless. A billionaire president can’t say what he thinks in the government-front social media forums, what kind of privilege is that?

Who are the white supremacists anyway?

Maybe it’s somebody who said blacks were simply inferior and it is unfair to expect them to compete against white people. And that’s why they should live separately from white people. And that’s why they should be resettled to Africa. And said so to a group of blacks that visited him once upon a time.

Yes, somebody who says whites are superior, and supported segregation and an ethnic cleansing of the country as a “humane” solution to the inferiority of dark-skinned folks.

That somebody was Abraham Lincoln, and today’s zombie “woke” SJW’s, antifa, BLM, and their comrades in power agree. The policy is the same. It’s not fair to make them compete or become doctors on merit.

Was this a Deep State operation?

January 10, 2021

A retired FBI guy says he saw busloads of antifa come into the capital. Some videos of the crowd outside the building before the breach looks like most of he Trump supporters were trying to stop the breaking in, yelling “Stop it” and “Stop antifa!”, “That’s antifa!”. One guy in a MAGA hat threw one of the window-breakers down to the ground.

How much you wanna bet the antifa boys were never arrested, or charged? An YES IT’S WHAT A DEEP STATE OPERATION WOULD LOOK LIKE, and with Congress poised for it too.

They did not want the evidence to get broadcast in the debates to object to it. The vote was a given, but this was their way to censor it and to demoralize the congressmen who were set to object. When they got back to the floor, Matt Geitz laid it all out. I can guarantee you they were all under threat. Hawley is one of the loudest, whence the big scare party in front of his DC house. DC not Missouri, where he was, to make the threat to family all the more strong.

And it was a psy-op meant also to scare any reluctant congressmen into compliance. I was surprised Rand Paul went along with it, but remember Paul’s cracked ribs. I do not think that was just a random neighbor thing. I think he got something for his troubles. I think he expressed remorse, but I don’t know that for sure.

The Capitol police basically ushered them in, removing barriers for them. One video shows one of them chasing a cop who is (obvious to me) pretending to threaten them with a baton while leading his pursuer up the stairs. The Capitol Police were not properly prepared. The top cop has resigned, so now nobody in Mockingbird Operation Media is going to be asking hm why he thought they should be so unprepared. But nobody is going to ask Mayor Bowser either, why, since she must agree that Trump is a dictator who wants to cling to power, and his radical violent supporters are systemic racists, why would she not want to swarm the entire Capital with armed security? The Dems gamed that scenario all along remember.

So why didn’t all the Dem shills who’ve been yelling Trump will try to stay in power, why didn’t they warn Bowser of what they knew? As soon as the polls made obvious that all the riots were hurting Biden’s campaign, why did the riots stop right then?

And why did the breakin happen right when they were about to start debate? With a dozen objectors left to make the case ON NETWORK TV?

such a time as this

January 10, 2021

So everything is different now.

It is time to accelerate all efforts to spread the Gospel, now more than ever. Get educated in all the Christian issues.

That applies even if you are in one the churches that preaches complete obedience to the state.

But for those who do not put their trust in man, whose breath is in his nostrils, but in God, it is even more important to teach others who can teach others and lead them to service in Christ.

Brother Andrew wrote of his visits to the churches in Czechoslovakia during the short time that Dubcek was head of the state, the Prague Spring I think it was called. Then the Soviet tanks invaded. He quickly returned, and called them to account for not using the time of the flaw to spread the Gospel and win souls.

He lit a fire in their bellies and they went out to the Soviet army soldiers and started sharing food and desserts with them and share salvation with them, bringing them blankets and other gifts.

The effect was electric. The love they shared with those soldiers had so much impact that the generals rotated the entire occupation force, replaced all of them, and issued orders of a strict ban on fraternizing with the citizens.

Say not ye there are yet four months to harvest (John 4:35), because there is coming, not only the “Dark Winter” that Joe Biden “promised” for us (as in “Please beat me again”), but a dark year and a dark decade.

God is in control, and “they that do know their God shall do exploits” in the near future now, but it will be much more difficult and much more dangerous to witness. Look at all votes in the Congress. This should let us know that it is time to drop out of the “system” and spread the truth and power of the Word of God.

And learn prophecy, but divide rightly the word of God. Dispense with dispensationalism!

Ashli Babbitt is her name.

Ashli Babbitt is her name. And she was NOT climbing through a window, and there is a video where it does NOT look like she was pounding on a window either. Four dead not in Ohio, but in the imperial capital of D. C.
