A Site I Can Follow

I recently came across the site Bearing Drift, a Virginia conservative site. Unlike the clickbaity and sensational sites I’ve seen this is actually good! Though I don’t consider myself conservative.

They acknowledge and cover unjustified shooting issues, and abortion issues, too:

…but is this a fight worth fighting?  The argument is simple: every human being has the basic right to exist.  No amount of social justice or government programs, no amount of job creation or education reform is worth a damn unless we defend and define the right to exist for every Virginian.


Almighty “Economy”

Us Christians mention of “idols” in our lives, such as money, sex, etc. but what about the Economy (with a capital “E”)?

Often times, left and right politics, look toward the “Economy” in order to fix our problems with consumer spending. There times of season of course, which involve the harvest, but how about we stop dropping the capital “E” in “economy”?


Trust

According to Gallup, many Americans have lost confidence in several institutions, such as Congress and the Presidency. A lot of this can be blamed on the unfaithfulness of the said institutions. Many leaders have been decieiving their way in (and to stay) in power. Who can be trusted in all this?

The Father is fully faithful all the time, even when we are not. He always keeps his word. And even the few times he has taken his word back, it was for our benefit. How cool is that?


The Battle against the “Evils” of “Arianism”

While browsing a website, I came across an article on a Catholic document on “Arianism.” I doubted if it was actually from the Catholic church, so I Googled some of the phrases and found the document on a Catholic site, which is proof enough to me.

The stuff in here is astounding. I used to have doubts on whether the trinity was real or not, and if I really was a heretic for not accepting it. Now those doubts are completely gone. This document unintentionally admits the true origins of the trinity doctrine.

The Jews proposed a supreme God who created by His word. It was an idea of a mediating “Word or Wisdom – the Word which is pronounced, the Wisdom which is created – whereby the Father communicated Himself to man and took possession of him (Guitton 1965, 81).” The Greeks could not see how a finite and changeable world could come from an eternal and changeless God. They proposed the idea of a “mediating Intelligence or even Word, a first emanation of the first principle which reduced the distance between God and the world (Guitton 1965, 81).” The primitive Church had to “reconcile the notions they had inherited from Judaism with those they had derived from philosophy.

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”Colossians 2:8 (KJV)

In the Book of Acts, we see people who turned their life for God throwing away their past beliefs, not twisting the truth to justify them. Did you know Catholic means “universal?” The Catholic church was a combination of Greek philosophy, paganism, and the Gospel mixed together to appeal to all Roman citizens, subjecting them to the Roman Catholic State-Church. This church then sought to destroy even the slightest opposition with the fist of the Roman Empire. If you think I’m wrong, look in a history book; it’s right there. It becomes obvious why Constantine supported it so much. He turned the Roman government into a religion–a god.

The Council did triumph over Arianism but only after fifty years of bitter battling.

Yes, it certainly is difficult to burn thousand of books and burn people at the stake. It’s truly disgusting why this has gone virtually unnoticed by so many for so long. This “church” has been driving so many people away from God due to it’s hypocrisy and oppression.

Yes, that was harsh against the Catholic church, but sometimes you have to be. Jesus himself did the same thing with the Pharisees. I’ll probably write more on this subject later.


Craponomics

In order to get my Associates in IT at Germanna, I need at least one economics course. So I’ve been taking Principles of Macroecomics (ECO 201). I’ve taken Austrian-based economics (The kind libertarians uphold) while being homeschooled, so I wanted to see what was “macroeconomics.” Most of the matierial is a bunch of garbage. I’ve been experiencing horrible grades because of it.

I know I have to try harder; I’ve already been doing so. Even though I try so hard, I’ve been doing so horrible because I feel so guilty knowing the truth behind issues like inflation. It’s like an FSF member pretending that Linux was an entire operating system created by Linus Torvalds on whim one day, making him the the founder of “free” software. It’s like an NRA member talking about the benefits of gun control. The person just can’t keep their conscience from screaming bloody murder. How can I honestly talk about the complications of inflation when I know a simple answer? How can I think in concepts of complicated formulas when I know everyday examples are more effective? How can I honestly write a two-to-three page paper for extra credit (which I need) on the successor of Alan Greenspan when I disagree with the existence of the Federal Reserve in the first place?

It’s not an issue of studying more or concentrating harder; it’s a matter of honesty. Hopefully I be able to pull through this. If not, I’ll do it again, but with a different mindset. I won’t be learning to believe, but learning to argue against. By understanding the reasoning behind this crap, I’ll be able to pass tests and argue against it.
