“You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man’s age-old dream—the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order—or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path. Plutarch warned, ‘The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits.’”
Speaker and author Dr. Jerry Bergman will speak Tuesday, March 9th at 7PM at Zion Unity Baptist Church (3855 E. 10th St., Indianapolis, IN). Dr. Bergman has written books on the fossil record, Hitler’s evolutionary roots, Charles Darwin, and fully functional vestigial organs.
He will discuss the following points: 1. Darwinian evolution/The Big Bang Theory are known lies from the intelligentsia; they are perpetuated for personal interest and monetary gain 2. Charles Darwin’s theory was an intentional effort to debunk Christianity and foment racism and humanism 3. Evidence supporting creation by an all-powerful, omniscient Creator abounds
“For You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.”
“[T]herein we find, neglected by us, the simplest, the most accessible key to our liberation: a personal nonparticipation in lies! Even if all is covered by lies, even if all is under their rule, let us resist in the smallest way: Let their rule hold not through me!
“And this is the way to break out of the imaginary encirclement of our inertness, the easiest way for us and the most devastating for the lies. For when people renounce lies, lies simply cease to exist. Like parasites, they can only survive when attached to a person.”
“But just take the jurists’ side for a moment: why, in fact, should a trial be supposed to have two possible outcomes when our general elections are conducted on the basis of one candidate? An acquittal is, in fact, unthinkable from the economic point of view! It would mean that the informers, the Security officers, the Interrogators, the prosecutor’s staff, the internal guard in the prison, and the convoy had all worked to no purpose.”

Mr. Taunton does a superb job of showing how the Religion of Wokeness has invaded the ministries of influential leaders like Tim Keller and John Piper.
It’s reminiscent of what the prophet Isaiah wrote:
10“Israel’s watchmen are blind, they all lack knowledge; they are all mute dogs, they cannot bark; they lie around and dream, they love to sleep. 11They are dogs with mighty appetites; they never have enough. They are shepherds who lack understanding; they all turn to their own way each seeks his own gain.”
At some point it’s less about your target’s despicability and more about your own vindictiveness.
“John Wycliffe died of his stroke on the last day of the year. The religious authorities had never excommunicated him because they feared public opinion–the people loved John and his fame was international. So he was buried in consecrated soil. But about thirty years later, the Council of Constance revenged itself on his criticism by condemning his teachings and ordering his bones to be dug up and burned.
“But the burning of such a man’s bones could not end his influence. As John Foxe said in his book of martyrs, ‘though they dug up his body, burnt his bones, and drowned his ashes, yet the Word of God and the truth of his doctrine, with the fruit and success thereof, they could not burn; which yet to this day…doth remain.'”

WASHINGTON, D.C. — This morning, U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared on the House floor with a mask that read, “I TAKE CARE OF YOU.”
This brings to mind a quote from George Orwell:
“No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?”
