RALEIGH, NC — A local retailer is making waves after announcing its most dramatic Black Friday sale ever, in which every item in the store is marked down to whatever the price was before Biden became President.
“Yeah, we’re going to lose a bundle on this deal since everything was so much cheaper under Trump,” said Store Manager Franzlie McBorgendern to reporters as thousands gathered outside awaiting store opening. “But we have to get people in the doors so we can stay in business — at least until Amazon runs us out of business in a couple of months.”
The sale is expected to fuel America’s nostalgia for a time when gas was affordable, groceries didn’t cost $500 per week, and the country wasn’t fighting a proxy war with Russia. “Merry Christmas! We hope you enjoy this little look back in time to 3 years ago!” said MCBorgendern before quietly weeping into a display of 50%-off bathroom towels.
At publishing time, interest in the sale plummeted after the store revealed that mask mandates would also be the same as they were right before Biden was President.

The Biden/Obama corrupt DOJ and FBI have created a Special Counsel led by the most corrupt investigator in US history. Mueller was a coup. This guy Jack Smith is a demon.
We reported on how Robert Mueller and his entire team were conflicted and never should have been put in charge of any investigation involving any conservative, let alone the President of the United States.
President Trump complained about the Special Counsel because it was corrupt. In many professions, like accountancy and auditing, there are rules that prevent an auditor from performing audits of those areas where there are either real or perceived conflicts of interest.
In the Mueller exam, every key member of the team had material real conflicts of interest as we noted in the article below.
So what does this corrupt DOJ do after getting away with it before? The corrupt gang of Deep State hacks create another Special Counsel to go after President Trump.
But this guy is worse than Mueller?
Yes, there is evidence to show this.
This investigation needs to be shut down. Americans won’t put up with another Mueller exam built upon illegal actions by a corrupt gang that should face sedition charges for trying to remove the President of the United States from office.
This was bold-faced treason.
Now, because they were allowed to get away with their seditious actions with the Mueller exam, the corrupt Obama/Biden DOJ is at it again.
The corrupt DOJ’s effort to create another totally conflicted Special Counsel needs to be ended and those behind it put in jail.The Corrupt Obama/Biden DOJ’s Newest Attempt in Creating a Corrupt Special Counsel Is Even More Criminal Than the Mueller Exam — The Gateway Pundit
Here’s an excellent book that directly confronts the problem of spiritual abuse in the church: Bully Pulpit: Confronting the Problem of Spiritual Abuse in the Church by Michael Kruger. Sadly, there are plenty of stories about how pastors manipulate, gaslight, deceive, and harm people in the church. Sometimes a pastor believes his vision is God’s work, and he steamrolls over anyone who gets in his way. Other times pastors are sexist and demeaning to women, telling them to basically shut up and submit. Bully pastors are often two-faced. At times they seem nice. At other times they display fits of anger, pride, and cruelty. Michael Kruger has looked into these very issues and documented them in Bully Pulpit. It’s a well-researched resource that is not only easy to read, but full of insight, wisdom, help.
Here’s the layout of the book: First, Kruger discusses the actual problem of bully…

Over 70 percent of children are now afraid of a climate crisis and suffer from so-called “eco-anxiety,” a new survey reveals.
A UK-based start-up surveyed 1,000 children born between 2010 and 2015 on their views on the environment.
According to the research, a staggering 71 percent of respondents feared environmental changes, including climate change.
Twenty-seven percent of the children surveyed were anxiety-ridden over the impact changing global temperatures have on animals, while 19 percent said plastic pollution is their greatest concern.
A peer-reviewed study published in July also found that children are increasingly experiencing “negative” emotions including “anger, sadness, guilt, and hopelessness that characterize eco-anxiety,” but noted additional evaluation of the climate change’s impact on children must be conducted.
The rise in children’s fears about climate change coincides with education systems ramping up alarmist climate change indoctrination in the classroom despite unsettled science on the threats of man-made climate change and evidence to the contrary.
According to a 2016 report from the National Center for Science Education, approximately 75 percent of public school science teachers in the United States teach climate change and almost all public school students likely receive at least some education about global warming.
In England, climate change is incorporated into the elementary and middle school curriculum, despite most teacher feeling ill-equipped to teach the subject.
“Climate change is already incorporated into the curricula for geography and science in England as both are compulsory subjects up to the age of 14,” Euronews Green reports.
Yet, “according to 2021 research from the campaign group Teach the Future, 71 percent of educators feel they don’t have enough training to talk to students about climate change,” the publication notes.
The European Union is even reportedly running courses for its workers to help them cope with eco-anxiety.
To foster “climate grief,” United Nations is collaborating with Google to catapult its climate change propaganda to the top of Google’s search engine results to fight “misinformation.”
In an interview with the World Economic Forum, United Nations Secretary for Global Communications Melissa Fleming assured Google would ensure the correct science would be promoted on the internet following the WEF, Google partnership.
“We own the science and we think that the world should know it and the platforms themselves also do,” Fleming said.
As children continue to experience major mental health difficulties following worldwide Covid lockdowns, the WEF and influential organizations herald the impact the lockdowns had on reducing carbon emissions and have indicated they intend to mitigate climate disaster by instituting climate lockdowns.
For instance, an op-ed published by the WEF in September champions how “billions” of people complied with “restrictions” imposed as a result of the Covid lockdowns and argues the masses would continue to comply under the guise of reducing carbon emissions.
The article, titled ‘My Carbon’: An approach for inclusive and sustainable cities,’ was written by Mridul Kaushik, Mission Director, Smart Cities Mission, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs of India.
Meanwhile, India is preparing to impose a climate lockdown to reduce pollution.
“India’s Supreme Court is calling for a lockdown in the capital, New Delhi. It’s because of a health emergency, but it’s not about COVID-19. It’s about air pollution,” NPR reports.
Authorities are slated to ban all nonessential travel and order tens of millions of people to work from home.New Survey Shows Over 70 Percent Of Children Are Now Afraid of Climate Change — The Gateway Pundit
More than 70 percent of 1,000 children surveyed aged 7-12 are now afraid of climate change according to the results of a study.
Adolf Hitler knew exactly then what the Climate Change people know now, that if you want to take control, you first have to grab a generation of children and indoctrinate them. Hitler created his Hitler Youth in 1920, and by 1933 he had all ‘muscle’ he needed to take over. For the past 17 years, since the launch of ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, which is conveniently untruthful, a generation of children had been indoctrinated with the false idea that man-made climate change is destroying the world. Now those kids are being whipped up into a fever pitch, and soon will be sent out to do battle. Battle against whom, you ask? Against all those who will not bow to the god of the this world, that’s who. Christians mostly.
“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” 2 Peter 3:10 (KJB)
Being hyper-focused on this planet we live on is a demonic idea, designed to get you to worship Gaia and Mother Nature instead of Jehovah God and His only begotten Son Jesus Christ. This world has been given over to the Devil, and that’s why you see people like the Roman pope bowing to idols, because they worship the god of this world. I reject sustainable development if it means I will be forced to consume insects, eat ‘meat’ from a test tube, or have digital identity inserted into my body.
Over 70 Per Cent of Children Aged 7-12 Now Afraid of Climate Change
FROM BREITBART NEWS: More than seven in ten children aged 7-12 are now worried about climate change, research conducted by a UK-based start-up has reportedly found. It comes amid reports from various experts that children and teenagers of various demographics are experiencing high rates of mental health difficulties, with one school councillor earlier this year saying that anxiety rates have hit an all-time high post-lockdown.
According to a report by Euronews, the survey — which polled 1,000 children born between 2010 and 2015 on their views regarding the environment — found that a total of 71 per cent of respondents were now worried about environmental changes, including the changing climate. 27 per cent of respondents in particular said that the impact changing global temperatures were having on animals is their greatest concern, while just under one in five were most concerned about plastic pollution.
The survey is one of the latest examples of so-called eco-anxiety — extreme worry in relation to the changing climate or dangers to the environment — affecting children at a time when educational systems are focusing more and more on ongoing issues to do with emissions and potential catastrophic rise of sea levels.
For those on the political left, in particular, eco-anxiety appears to be a growing variable, with the European Union even running courses for its workers in the hopes of helping them to deal with the stress brought about by their climate beliefs. A study published earlier this year found that a significant number of children now also appear to be experiencing “a variety of emotions such as anger, sadness, guilt, and hopelessness that characterize eco-anxiety”, though noted that more research into the phenomenon’s impact on children in particular needed to be done.
Such anxiety comes at a time when many young people are already experiencing major mental health difficulties for a wide variety of reasons, with some experts even suspecting that the on-and-off worldwide COVID lockdowns have had a seriously detrimental effect on the well-being of children.
“Kids have the highest level of anxiety I’ve ever seen: anxiety about basic safety and fear of what could happen,” one Colorado school councillor told a New York Times investigation earlier this year.

Joe Biden’s corrupt and dishonest Ron Klain made up some garbage to pass around the Thanksgiving table. Most families thankfully passed on the advice.
Ron Klain, Biden’s Chief of Staff, is one of the most dishonest politicians in the US today. This is why he has a position in the Biden Administration.
Klain sent out a tweet where he attempted to put together some positive points from Biden’s first two years. For example, the first positive think about Biden that Klain shares is “gas prices are down $1.35/gallon since June and inflation is moderating”.
The fact is gas is way up since Biden took over. The price of gas under President Trump, when the country was energy independent was $1.87 a gallon. Now it’s near $5.00 a gallon. The price is down from June but it’s due to Biden stealing from the national reserves which is now almost depleted. Prices can’t stay down using that strategy since the reserves are now gone.
Inflation is at a 40-year-high. Moderating at this level is horrible.
Others on Twitter called lying Klain out on his BS. One guy pointed out the price of an average turkey dinner.
Another response pointed out some of the numerous lies from this Administration, terrible polices, terrible outcomes and record-setting horrible results.
Another individual used pictures to point out Biden’s first two years in office. These pics showed everything you needed to know.Biden Admin Sends Out His First Two Years’ Accomplishments – Responders Point Out the Truth — The Gateway Pundit

On Wednesday Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, along with Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, deposed Anthony Fauci (head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases [NIAID]) at the National Institutes for Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported in May that the Missouri and Louisiana Attorneys General filed a lawsuit (Missouri v. Biden) against the Biden Administration, including Joe Biden himself, Anthony Fauci, the Department of Homeland Security and nearly a dozen federal agencies and Secretaries.
Fauci was deposed on Wednesday. And The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft and attorney John Burns were present at the deposition and witnessed the questioning for seven hours.
During questioning, Dr. Fauci admitted that he got the idea for the unprecedented economic lockdowns in America based on the draconian measures taken by the Communist Chinese regime.
Fauci sent his longtime co-hort Clifford Lane to China in February to assess the situation. Lane was enthralled with the Chinese measures and pushed the idea on Dr. Fauci.
Of course, Fauci did not question the information despite Communist China’s history of falsified information.
From the deposition:
John Sauer, “And Mr. Lane, after returning from the trip, said the Chinese were managing this in a very structured, organized way; correct?… Did you discuss Mr. Lane’s experience on the trip with him when he got back from the WHO trip?”
Dr. Fauci, ” The answer is I did… Dr. Lane was very impressed about how from a clinical public health standpoint, the Chinese were handling the isolation, the contact tracing, the building of facilities to take care of people, and that’s what I believed he meant when he said were managing this in a very structured organized way.”
Sauer: “So he drew the conclusion that there might have to be extreme, in his word, measures to mandate social distancing to bring the outbreak under control; correct?”
Fauci: “That’s what this is implying, yes… He did discuss with me that the Chinese 19 had a very organized way of trying to contain the spread in Wuhan and elsewhere. He didn’t get a chance to go to Wuhan, but he was in Beijing, and I believe other cities — at least Beijing — and he mentioned that they had a very organized well regimented way of handling the outbreak.
Sauer: “And so he had a kind of positive reaction to that. There might be lessons to be learned for the United States in its response to the outbreak?”
Fauci: “I believe Dr. Lane came to the conclusion that when you have a widespread respiratory disease that a very common and effective way to curtail the rapid spread of the disease is by implementing social distancing measures… Dr. Lane is a very astute clinician, and I have every reason to believe that his evaluation of the situation was accurate and correct.”
Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, MD, a plaintiff in the case, posted a long thread on Twitter on this Fauci admission.
Fauci stripped Americans of their constitutional rights based on highly suspect results by the Chinese.

T.D. Jakes says that God eternally exists in three manifestations, not three persons. Greg Boyd says God knows some aspects of the future, but that other future events are outside of his knowledge. Creflo Dollar says because we are created in the image of God, we are little gods. Mormonism says God revealed new scripture to Joseph Smith that supersedes the Bible. Roman Catholicism says we are justified by faith, but not by faith alone. This world is a murky madness of true and false. For every doctrine we know to be true, there seems to be a hundred pretenders.
No wonder, then, that John tells us to “test the spirits” and Paul says, “test everything” (1 John 4:1, 1 Thessalonians 5:21). It is our sacred responsibility to examine every doctrine to determine if it is true or false. But how can we distinguish sound doctrine from false? How can we distinguish teachers of truth from teachers of error? In our opening article, I said that putting a doctrine to the test is the best way to determine if it is true or false. As we test the doctrine, we learn our responsibility toward it: We either hold to it or we reject it. I am returning to those tests today to explain them in greater detail. They provide a grid that is useful for testing any doctrine.
Test 1: The Test of Origin
The first test is the test of origin. Sound doctrine originates with God; false doctrine originates with someone or something created by God. The Apostle Paul went to great lengths to convince the church in Galatia that the gospel he taught was not his own, but God’s. “For I would have you know, brothers, that the gospel that was preached by me is not man’s gospel. For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ” (Galatians 1:11-12). Even Jesus was clear that he taught only what God had instructed him to teach: “My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me” (John 7:16). True doctrine originates with the God who is true (Titus 1:2).
It is this simple: Sound teaching originates with God and false teaching originates with men or demons.
Just as true doctrine is marked by its divine origin, false doctrine is marked by its worldly origin. Paul warned the Colossian church to avoid doctrine that is “according to human precepts and teachings” and told Timothy that some would “depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons” (Colossians 2:22, 1 Timothy 4:1). It is this simple: Sound teaching originates with God and false teaching originates with men or demons. When it comes to doctrine, if man made it, then we should not hold it. God is the Father of truth and Satan is the father of lies (John 8:44).
The test: Does this doctrine originate with God or has it been fabricated by someone or something else?
This leaves us with an obvious question: How can we know the origin of a doctrine? Sometimes its origin is obvious, but more often it is not. When we are uncertain, we can turn to our second test.
Test 2: The Test of Authority
The second test is the test of authority. Sound doctrine grounds its authority within the Bible; false doctrine grounds its authority outside the Bible. The Bible is God’s inerrant, infallible, sufficient, complete, and authoritative revelation of himself to humanity. Doctrines that originate in the mind of God are recorded in the Word of God. There is a clear and necessary correlation between origin and authority, between God and his Word.
We can think here of those noble Bereans who “received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so” (Acts 17:11). They knew that all doctrines must be compared to God’s Word, his source of truth. Likewise, Paul praised the Thessalonians for their careful assessment and acceptance of his teaching because they understood its divine authority. “And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers” (1 Thessalonians 2:13). Sound doctrine originates in the mind of God and is recorded in his authoritative self-revelation, the Bible.
The test: Does this doctrine appeal to the Bible for its authority? Or does it appeal to another scripture or another mind?
But a concern remains, because two teachers may both claim the authority of the Bible while teaching very different things. How can we know whose interpretation is correct? This is where we turn to the third test.
Test 3: The Test of Consistency
The third test is the test of consistency. Sound doctrine is consistent with the whole of Scripture; false doctrine is inconsistent with some parts of Scripture. There is a sameness or familiarity to true doctrine and a strangeness or unfamiliarity to false doctrine. The man who wrote the letter to the Hebrews warned his congregation about “diverse and strange teachings,” while Paul warned Timothy about accepting “different doctrine” (Hebrews 13:9; 1 Timothy 1:3, 6:3). Both meant to emphasize that doctrine must always be compared to the established, accepted body of truth. Those who are knowledgeable about that body of truth will be in the best position to immediately identify and refute what is false.
Because there can be no contradiction in the mind of God, there can be no contradiction in the revelation of God.
This is tied to a key theological principle, “the analogy of faith,” which is often explained with the phrase “Scripture interprets Scripture.” If the Bible originates in the infallible mind of God, it must be consistent throughout. Because there can be no contradiction in the mind of God, there can be no contradiction in the revelation of God. What the Bible teaches in one place it cannot refute in another. Therefore, any true doctrine must be consistent with the whole of Scripture. Doctrine must never be treated in isolation, but always in light of a correct understanding of the entire Bible. Too many false teachers isolate verses or ideas that cannot withstand the scrutiny of the whole Book.
The test: Is this doctrine established or refuted by the entirety of Scripture?
Once we have tested doctrine and found it to be true, according to these three criteria, we can also see its soundness by its effects on us and those around us. That requires two more tests.
Test 4: The Test of Spiritual Growth
The fourth test is the test of spiritual growth. Sound doctrine is beneficial for spiritual health; false doctrine leads to spiritual weakness. After instructing Timothy, Paul told him, “If you put these things before the brothers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, being trained [“nourished”] in the words of the faith and of the good doctrine that you have followed” (1 Timothy 4:6). Timothy had trained himself in the Bible and Christian doctrine. He had nourished himself in the truths he had been exposed to since he was a child. And he had never stopped. Through this continual nourishment, this ongoing dining on the Word of God, he had grown spiritually healthy and strong. He had accumulated a thorough knowledge of God and his Word. This is why Paul called him a “man of God” with “sincere faith” (1 Timothy 6:11, 2 Timothy 1:5). Timothy’s constant nourishment in sound doctrine from the Word of God made him the man he was.
Sound doctrine makes spiritually healthy, mature, knowledgeable Christians. False doctrine makes spiritually unhealthy, immature, ignorant Christians who may be no Christians at all.
Test 5: The Test of Godly Living
The fifth test is the test of godly living. Sound doctrine has value for godly living, false doctrine leads to ungodly living. Truth never stands on its own, but always has implications in life. Doctrine is always meant to lead to doxology, worship, and purposeful living. “All Scripture is breathed out by God,” says Paul, “and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Scripture is not to be known in an abstract sense, but intimately. It is to inform not only our minds, but our hearts and hands as well.
Truth has not been grasped until it has been lived.
Paul charged Titus to “teach what accords with sound doctrine,” reminding him that such doctrine is “excellent and profitable for people” (3:8, 2:1). “What accords with” sound doctrine is its far-reaching implications, the duties that flow out of it. Thus, sound doctrine has value. It is profitable in teaching us to live as we ought to live. It equips us to do those things that are are good for our neighbor and that bring honor and glory to our God. Truth has not been grasped until it has been lived. Sound doctrine profits us by training us to live in a way that pleases God. False doctrine weakens us by training us to live in a way that dishonors God.
Evaluation: The Determination of Quality
At this point we simply take all of the evidence from the three tests and make a conclusion about the quality of the doctrine in question. Sound doctrine originates with God, is recorded in the Word of God, is consistent with the whole revelation of God, and leads to both spiritual health and godly living. False doctrine originates with men or demons, is foreign to the Word of God, is inconsistent with the whole revelation of God, and leads to spiritual weakness and ungodly living. It must pass all of the tests in order to be sound. If it fails one, it fails all of them. This word “sound” refers to health and appears often in the New Testament. For example, Paul instructed Timothy, “Follow the pattern of the sound [“healthy”] words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 1:13). To Titus he said, “Teach what accords with sound [“healthy”] doctrine” (Titus 2:1).
The task of the doctor is to evaluate a patient to declare him fit or unfit. The patient is fit when his whole body is functioning properly, free of disease. The task of the Christian is to evaluate every doctrine to declare it fit or unfit. John Stott says it characteristically well: “Christian doctrine is healthy in the same way as the human body is healthy. For Christian doctrine resembles the human body. It is a coordinated system consisting of different parts which relate to one another and together constitute a harmonious whole. If therefore our theology is maimed (with bits missing) or diseased (with bits distorted), it is not ‘sound’ or ‘healthy’.” Doctrine that passes the three tests is sound doctrine. It is pure and undefiled, true according to God’s unfailing standard of truth.
The evaluation: Based on the evidence, is this doctrine sound or false?
Action: Determine Your Responsibility
Having thoroughly tested the doctrine and examined its effects, we are able to determine how to respond to it. Sound doctrine must be accepted and held fast; false doctrine must be denied and rejected. When Jesus spoke to the believers in Thyatira, he commended them for clinging to truth and told them to “hold fast what you have until I come” (Revelation 2:25). Paul described the elder as a man who “must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it” (Titus 1:9).
Our responsibility is clear: We must accept and hold fast to what is true, and we must deny and reject what is false. Likewise, the church must welcome those who teach sound doctrine and rebuke those who do not. If they do not heed correction, the church must reject them, removing them and their influence (1 Corinthians 5:9).
In summary, true doctrine (content) originates with God (origin), is grounded in the Bible (authority), and agrees with the whole of Scripture (consistency). Because such doctrine is sound (quality), it is healthy (benefit), and profitable (value) for us, and we are responsible for holding it (responsibility).
False doctrine (content) originates with man (origin), is not grounded in the Bible (authority), and contradicts portions of Scripture (consistency). Because such doctrine is unsound (quality), it is unhealthy (benefit) and unprofitable (value) for us, and we are responsible for rejecting it (responsibility).

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times
It was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness,
It was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of Incredulity,
It was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness,
It was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.”
—Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
Thus the great Charles Dickens described another revolutionary time when all presuppositions and values were severely challenged. As 21st-century men and women, we are in the midst of a similar epoch. 21st-century Christians have been called upon to follow the Lord and to be His disciples in a supremely strategic moment in history.
In the epoch that Dickens so eloquently describes, the American and French Revolutions took place within the 25 years that encompassed the last quarter of the eighteenth century (1775-1800). The struggle for hearts and minds between the essential elements of these two Revolutions and their contrasting world views continues virtually unabated today, both internationally and intranationally.
Multitudes of observers have commented at length on the increasingly dominant influence of what Carl F. H. Henry as early as 1946 called “the secular philosophy of humanism or naturalism.”1
One of the most incisive analyses of this evolving cultural crisis was provided by Alexandr Solzhenitsyn, the Soviet exile Nobel laureate many, including myself, consider to be one of the 20th and 21st centuries’ greatest men. In Solzhenitsyn’s commencement address at Harvard University in June 1978, he sounded the alarm, warning of the grievous consequences of this fallacious worldview:
“The humanistic way of thinking, which has proclaimed itself our guide, did not admit the existence of intrinsic evil in man, nor did it see any task higher than the attainment of happiness on earth. It started modern western civilization on the dangerous trend of worshipping man and his material needs…as if human life did not have any higher meaning.”2
As Christians, we have been called upon by the providence of God to know and follow the Lord and to be His disciples in a supremely strategic moment in history. It is a moment replete with devastating problems and ripe with promising opportunities.
Christian theologian Carl F. H. Henry warned Christians 40 years ago of the drastic extent to which philosophies and educational theories have succumbed to this man-centered, rather than God-centered, focus, and orientation. Henry observed that man rather than God “now define ‘truth’ and ‘goodness’ in most modern universities and that this is the culmination” of “the greatest overturn of ideas and ideals in the history of human thought.” Such anthropocentric, man-centered thinking “assumes the comprehensive contingency of everything, including God; the total temporality of all things; the radical relativity of all human thought and life; and the absolute autonomy of man.”3
This humanistic philosophy has now thoroughly saturated all aspects of our American culture, including our nation’s public schools. As a result of the COVID lockdowns, millions of parents across America have been shocked as they have discovered what their children were being taught in their public schools.
Morally relative, humanistically-influenced education has pushed de-bunking American history and utterly rejecting traditional sexual mores. As former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has explained:
“If our kids don’t grow up understanding America is an exceptional nation, we’re done. If they think it’s an oppressor class and an oppressed class, if they think the 1619 Project, and we were founded on a racist idea—if those are the things people entered the seventh grade deeply embedded in their understanding of America, it’s not difficult to understand how Xi Jinping’s claim that America is in decline won’t prove true.”4
In fact, having surveyed the impact of these philosophies’ major implementation in the public schools, Pompeo called the teachers’ union head, Randi Weingarten, “the most dangerous person in the world.” (ibid.).
This humanistic, morally relative society has been metastasizing within American society for several generations, and its destructive chickens have come home to roost.
Popular culture has long reflected this trajectory. The song “Imagine” by John Lennon has been voted the most popular “rock” song of all time:
“Imagine there’s no heaven.
It’s easy if you try.
No hell below us
Above us, only sky.
Imagine all the people
Living for today.
Imagine there’s no countries.
It isn’t hard to do.
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too.
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace.
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can.
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world.
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one.”
Such naïve, incorrect thinking about fallen human nature cannot be sustained, even by Lennon. The very next song on the album is also written by John Lennon, and it’s entitled
“You can shine your shoes and wear a suit,
You can comb your hair and look quite cute.
You can hide your face behind a smile.
One thing you can’t hide
Is when you’re crippled inside.
You can wear a mask and paint your face,
You can call yourself the human race.
You can wear a collar and a tie,
But one thing you can’t hide
Is when you’re cripped inside.”
This false optimism about the reality of human nature should not be a surprise to anyone who has read the first chapter of the Apostle Paul’s Epistle to the Romans. As 21st-century American Christians, we are now confronted not by a secular society, but by a neopagan society with its own new idols and its own new gods.
As C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) observed many years ago,
“When men cease to believe in God, it is not that they believe in nothing. They believe in anything. Now we have supposedly intelligent twentieth-century people who wear pyramids around their necks and believe in crystal power.”
Now, with the transgender phenomenon being just the latest example of a triumph of a relativist mindset in the U.S., we seem to be closing in on G.K. Chesterton’s (1874-1936) dismal prophecy in 1900 (Heretics) that the West would reach a point in the future when “Fires will be kindled,” he said, “to testify that two and two make four. Swords will be drawn to prove that leaves are green in the summer.”
Chesterton prophesied in 1900, “The great march of mental destruction will go on. Everything will be denied. Everything will become a creed.”
So, how should Christians respond to this existential crisis concerning the objective understanding of truth and the belief that life has meaning and purpose?
Today’s Christians should draw inspiration and encouragement from the fact that we face a situation remarkably analogous to the one which confronted our first-century spiritual ancestors.
Like our first-century Christian brothers and sisters, we must be “transformed by the renewing of our minds” (Rom. 12:1-2). To be truly effective in changing lives and changing culture, we must first experience that spiritual change ourselves.
If we are going to be the salt and light Jesus commanded us to be (Matt. 5:13-16), we must be in the world (salt must make contact with that with which it wishes to preserve and light which is to “shine before men” must be seen by men). We are to be in the world, but not of the world (Jas. 1:27).
As we face our neopagan cultural milieu under the command to be salt and to be light, we must realize that our ability to do so successfully will first be governed not only by His presence in our lives, but also by the extent we surrender on a daily basis to His Lordship. As W. Graham Scroggie so beautifully put it:
“Christ’s presence in us has its degrees and advances, its less and more, its outer and inner. A life may be truly Christian and yet far from fully Christian. It is this which distinguishes one Christian from another. Some have made little room for Christ, some give Him more, and in some He has the whole house. Or, viewed from another standpoint, in some, Christ is just present, in others He is prominent, and in others again, He is preeminent.”
Let us renew our faith in our Savior and Lord this Christmas season. May God use our faithfulness as His instrument to bring about revival, renewal, and spiritual reformation in America and the world.
May God bless America and may He make us worthy of blessing.

Thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee.Deuteronomy 33:29
That archenemy, the devil, is a liar from the beginning; but he is so very plausible that, like mother Eve, we are led to believe him. Yet in our experience we shall prove him a liar.
He says that we shall fall from grace, dishonor our profession, and perish with the doom of apostates; but, trusting in the Lord Jesus, we shall hold on our way and prove that Jesus loses none whom His Father gave Him. He tells us that our bread will fail, and we shall starve with our children; yet the Feeder of the ravens has not forgotten us yet, and He will never do so, but will prepare us a table in the presence of our enemies.
He whispers that the Lord will not deliver us Out of the trial which is looming in the distance, and he threatens that the last ounce will break the camel’s back. What a liar he is! For the Lord will never leave us or forsake us. “Let him deliver him now!” cries the false fiend: but the Lord will silence him by coming to our rescue.
He takes great delight in telling us that death will prove too much for us. “How wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?” But there also he shall prove a liar unto us, and we shall pass through the river singing psalms of glory.Over Jordan with Singing — VCY America
“I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” Psalm 27:13 (NASB)
Since the pandemic, I have wrestled with despair. I want to believe God is with me, but I am tempted to be at the mercy of an unseen virus that could sneak up on me and kill me or someone I love.
So my soul searches for God’s truths. Where is God in all of this? Do I believe what he says is true? Do I believe in His goodness despite my greatest fears?
David writes this psalm as he is running for his life. He, too, felt danger and uncertainty. As he wrote words of confidence in the Lord throughout Psalm 27, he was honest and yearning in his relationship with God and to be delivered from what he feared most.
The word “unless” in the above verse packs a powerful meaning. Believing in the Lord’s goodness brings hope from despair. He gives us a choice. We can either despair or have confidence in his goodness, seen every day as we have sunshine and rain, morning and night, birds singing, and flowers blooming.
If we truly believe in the Lord’s goodness, we can realize that he cares. Despair doesn’t have to control us, and fear can be overcome. God is in the midst of our crisis, yet he has a bigger picture of all of it.
Lord God, help me to trust in your goodness. When fears and feelings of dismay come at me, help me to choose to believe in your goodness instead of the circumstances. Amen.

FURTHER READINGOvercome the Fear — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” John 14:27
Some of you reading this right now are very much afraid. The hardest trials are those that can’t be talked about with anyone else.
Often, unpleasant thoughts seek to occupy us as soon as we awake. Resistance flies away, then comes anxiety and dread, flooding our soul with despair. Hours and days pass without relief. Exhausted, our souls cry out, how long, Lord? But peace feels far away and unattainable.
Take heart, fellow pilgrim. You’re not alone. There are others suffering the same and know exactly how you feel. (1 Peter 5:9)
More importantly, Jesus gives you his peace, so do not be afraid anymore.
Peace and fear can’t be in the same room at the same time. Do not grow weary in the battle but be encouraged filling your mind with his Word:
So do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. (Isaiah 41:10)
You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. (Isaiah 26:3)
He did not give us a spirit of fear, but of love and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)
Fear not, for I have redeemed you. I have called you by my name. You are mine. (Isaiah 43:1)
The Lord shall preserve you from all evil. He shall preserve your soul. (Psalm 121:7)
We are called to suffer and share in being comforted by our Lord. Praise to our God who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)
Someone will cross your path one day. You will understand exactly how they feel and be their help from God.
Lord, enable us by Your Spirit to fill our minds and hearts with your truths. Thank you for giving us peace and delivering us from the darkness into your marvelous light! “When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy” (Psalm 94:19)

Fear Of Bible Prophecy May Be A ‘Natural Response,’ But It’s Not Biblical

JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank are accused of profiting from the late pedophile’s activities
Civil lawsuits filed in a New York court accuse JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank of turning a blind eye to the sexual predation of their former client, Jeffrey Epstein, several
reported on Thursday. Both managed his accounts after his 2008 conviction and allegedly ignored “red flags” in financial transactions.
The two unnamed victims of the late disgraced financier, who filed separate lawsuits, want them to become class-action cases against the financial institutions, according to the reports. Both claimants are being represented by David Boies, a lawyer who represented Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre in a case against one of Epstein’s associates, Britain’s Prince Andrew.
The claims against JPMorgan are based to a degree on revelations about Epstein’s relationship with its former executive, Jes Staley. The British financial authorities launched a probe into it in 2020, with Staley consequently resigning as the CEO of Barclays last year.
Epstein was a client of JPMorgan for about 15 years before he was dropped in 2013. Staley cultivated close ties with Epstein and visited him during his 13-month imprisonment for a 2008 underage prostitute trafficking conviction in Florida. He also lobbied his employer to retain him as a client. In 2013, Staley left JPMorgan to join US hedge fund BlueMountain Capital and took charge of Barclays in late 2015.
Deutsche Bank provided private banking services to Epstein between 2013 and 2018. In 2020, New York’s Department of Financial Services fined the bank $150 million for its failure to monitor the activities of its client, a registered sex offender. Investigators flagged suspicious regular cash withdrawals and payments worth millions of dollars, which the bank should have noticed under its anti-money laundering duties.
The claimants in the two suits say both banks chose to ignore Epstein’s criminal record to make a profit in fees for managing his accounts. In doing so, they participated in his sex trafficking operations, the suits argued.
According to the reports, the woman suing JPMorgan is a former ballet dancer in New York, who was abused by Epstein from 2006 to 2013, according to her suit. In a separate case, the woman suing Deutsche Bank said that she was victimized by the financier from about 2003 until about 2018. Both alleged they were trafficked to his friends.
Epstein died in a jail in New York in 2019 while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. The US authorities claimed that he committed suicide. During his life, Epstein rubbed shoulders with some of the most influential people in the world, from US President Bill Clinton to Prince Andrew and Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
