Two Great Forces Move Us the Most; Fear and Love

 

Love makes us feel that our lives have meaning, are good, and that others are our friends and allies. There's no better feeling in the world than being in love. We will go to great lengths for people we love, sometimes even sacrificing our lives for them. Fear is the opposite. Fear tells us that we're doomed to lose everything we love, even our very  existence. For the religious among us, fear tells us our eternal lives will be torment. 

Tyrants and other criminals know that fear is an easy tool to acquire and wield against others, and love is much more difficult if not impossible; especially if you're inclined to crime and your intentions are evil. Making others love us is possible, but requires great skill. True love, though, has a life of its own and can't be easily manipulated. So fear is the common, foolproof option if you want others to bend to your will. 

The stakes are immense in our modern world. Power, money, status, and sex are the earthly reward. Any expert at pretending to love - and willing to ruthlessly use fear to manipulate people - can rise quickly in politics. History is bursting with the names of infamous leaders who rose to the highest heights. A few hung onto absolute power until death, even after murdering a hundred million of their own citizens. Mao Tse Tung and Josef Stalin head that list. But most of the evil geniuses who attained that power destroyed themselves, their people, their nations, and everyone else who effectively got in their way. 

Our globe today is gripped by a fear so deep that it's ruining our lives and civilization. Billions are convinced that invisible threats are killing off all life on earth. The only people who disagree are faithful believers in the God of all Creation. This good and all-powerful Lord owns the universe and has a plan for everyone who honors Him. Not only will His people have life, but they will have eternal riches, power, beauty, joy, and a goodness we can barely imagine. Worldly riches are cruel fakes and counterfeits compared to God's gifts. 

This great and good Creator has an enemy, the Anti-Christ; Satan; who is bent on destroying the greatest of all His creations: faithful men and women. This enemy is a master of lies and fear, and he's using science to do it; or rather, our weak  understanding of science. Science isn't a Bible, it's an ongoing process of study, testing, theorizing, proving, and disproving. Often, scientific certainties like gravity are proven real; but then new discoveries show that there are many more dimensions to it than we knew. There's no such thing as "settled science", especially in very complex arenas like the weather, climate, virology, nuclear physics, biology, and so on. We need to think of the "scientific process" as a staircase leading ever upward. There's no Science Heaven we can ever attain on earth where everything is finally known, categorized, and finished. Only religion offers eternal and immutable Truth. God alone can grant us eternal knowledge in Paradise:



 


Several things mark the Satanic view of science. First, it's atheistic, and often anti-theistic; God-hating. Proponents have a fatal pride and assurance that everything they say cannot be questioned. Second, the greatest fears these people have are from invisible forces like gases (CO2, hydrocarbons, radon); viruses and bacteria; radiation (nuclear, solar, electromagnetic); and genetic variations formed in labs to enhance plant fertility and nutrition (GMO foods). Ordinary people can't see these threats, and with so much money available, it's easy to bribe those who would tell the truth about the scam. 

Leftist politics has spawned a trillion-dollar industry of fear-mongering - through media manipulation - which funnels government, industry, and private monies into rackets that are acquiring totalitarian power over the whole world. "Every great cause becomes a movement, becomes a business, and degenerates into a racket." - Eric Hoffer.  

Literal panic is seizing huge mobs of unthinking citizens in every country who are then manipulated into voting for and electing the minions of the Anti-Christ. Trillions of dollars are being stolen or thrown away on "climate change technologies", "infrastructure enhancements", and "anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-bigotry, and anti-transphobic" reparations; i.e., payoffs. It's the greatest criminal movement in history. 

Here's the testimony of one of the original founders of Greenpeace, one of the earliest of these panic-generating rackets:

Forgiveness Is A Two-Way Street

What if you were the child of a loving, wealthy, kind, and powerful family, but had become separated from them at birth by some catastrophe? Let's say you were born in a country - like Russia - which had revolted against the one where your mother, father, and family lived - like the United States. And now these two nations are in a hot war. 

So you had been cut off from them your whole impoverished life. The entire time you thought you were an orphan. You did what you had to do to survive, sometimes committing violent crimes. Everyone in your country had done the same. Only recently did you discover the truth of your birth, when a messenger delivered documents and proofs that you were a blood relative of this great family. Now they desperately want you back, even with full knowledge of the guilt you bear, but you're angry. Why did they wait so long to find you? Would they really want you if they knew everything you had done? How could you ever fit in? 

There are a lot of secret reports from the battlefront, and the carnage is terrible. Millions of soldiers on both sides are involved, but your country is doomed, sooner or later. Many of the dead soldiers you knew, and some you grew up with. When,  and if, your compatriots find out you're actually a blood-member of the U.S. side, they will accuse you of spying and hang you. 
The messenger prevailed and returned a message to the family that your sense of hurt and anger was the only reason for delay. 

A few days later another stealthy messenger came through the lines and handed you one last note from the Pater Familias; the head of the family. It reads, "I know your hurt and pain, which are very familiar to me, but forgiveness is a two way street. I have forgiven every transgression of yours. Can you not forgive the pain I allowed to be given you? Just know that I have reasons you'll never understand in this life, only in your eternal life to come, why your suffering was necessary and accrues to your entire benefit, one-hundred fold."  

This, good readers, is exactly the situation you and I and all faithful people are in. A huge war is raging, and will soon be over. Can we not forgive the Creator of all life, and trust that He knows what He's doing? Trust in Scripture, particularly the Apostle Paul, in 2 Thessalonians 2:

The Man of Lawlessness [Satan]
"Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God..... and he will work [dark] miracles..."

There are benefits for believing in God that you may not have thought about:

                                                   


We only have a limited time to act and save our souls and spirits. Don't procrastinate. Consider how timely this song was in 1969 when it first hit the charts:
