Words are Strategic Territory

The truth is he was so glad at being free from his long enchantment that all the dangers seemed a game in comparison.” – CS Lewis, The Silver Chair

Mindset is everything. Words are the framework of your mindset. The battle of today’s warfare is for the right to control your words, and by controlling your words, control your mind.

Stories from far away compound to hijack your capacity to put things together for yourself. Dreams and goals are more often than not somebody else’s agenda sold to you as the price of your freedom. The world doesn’t need new agendas. We need better prayers.

Arrogance is the sin of self-ignorance. But it is not wrong to take back what is rightfully yours. The zeal to set things back in their proper order, even at the cost of sacrifice, is the definition of valor.

If you must die fighting, then commend yourself to the lion.” -ibid.

Refuse to Complicate

If you’re still reading this, then it means you’re probably not one of that massively cynical consensus, gradually being driven insane by their devices. Rather, you resent the evident crossbreeding of abused trusts in the power of the surveillance state programmed into your friends and neighbors by the superpower of dissent mitigation waged as media in the name of “public health”. You are one of those waking up to realize that the state of disorientation we are all experiencing is both engendered and intentional.

“They” have been using these passion-enhancing tools to amplify the basest and most vile infatuations of the human psyche, and “they” will continue to breed tensions between men until “they” are consumed in the fires of His coming.

Make no mistake: the demons know what they are doing.

Consider the safety of your family, both temporally and Spiritually in the current disorder. Think of how controlled your attempts at opposition always feel amid the evils of the world burning down around you.

Then remember that Jesus desires more fruit. That much is obvious. So you’re not here to give up and wait for the black pill to swallow you.

You’re going to pray to the God who saves. Because He does.

“They’re” burning the ships. You don’t have a choice. This is your moment. Alleluia.

Spies like us

The National Security Council issued a report this month, outlining the Biden administration’s strategy for tackling domestic terrorism. Former FBI agent Kevin R. Brock wrote about the report for The Hill, commending some aspects of the NSC’s plan but sounding a warning about much of it. Brock says the strategy focuses on “one flavor of domestic terror that doesn’t offend the President’s base.” 

Brock says that the main targets for preventing terrorism are racism and bigotry, natch. Yet the definition of racism “is ever-expanding and [is] sweeping up new thoughts and actions.” Bigotry now includes “any effort to resist homosexual and transgender agendas by traditional, faith-based communities.” While that is troubling enough, the “fourth pillar” of the strategy involves preventing people from thinking for themselves, using what Brock calls “reeducation, eradication and media censorship.” (Thanks to CodyCoramDeo for this one.)

There are many takeaways for Mad Christians here. Though the tide may be turning against that which we love and value, we are not alone. We know the Holy Spirit comforts us and helps us in days of adversity.St Paul exhorted the Colossians to always speak with grace, “seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.” Even while he was in chains, the apostle asked them to pray that he would be given an opportunity “to speak the mystery of Christ.” So let’s pray for wisdom, because though the definitions of words change around us, God’s truth does not.
