What I don’t like about this video is how many times I saw the demolition of the same complexes and yet their connection to Evergrande’s real estate practices was never made clear.

I left the healthcare system entirely about 6 years ago. I was held overnight for abdominal pain and told I wasn’t allowed to leave, only to have a battery of inconclusive and expensive tests, barbiturates, and an oblivious doctor I had never met that tell me I should put on my dancing shoes because I would be “allowed” to leave after a fruitless $27k hospital visit

Gonna throw this out there but so the fuck what if there isn’t a gay gene? Why does it have to be a gene? Is there a gene for autism, or for any other developmental deformity that may occur from environmental stresses?

Word for word my thoughts exactly. Every single one.

After a quick glance at the demiurge narrative I can pretty much confidently say that it wrongly interprets its own foundations and has no place in judeo- or inspired Christian theology.

You need to do your homework. Sri Lanka is likely going to have a WEF simp installed. At the very least it is far too soon to say whether the ppl there will find the success you think they are having. These battles aren’t won in a day or so easily by the forceful removal of an individual or small group of people. You must also win the hearts and minds of many to control the narrative—which is not achieved through rash action or flippant division your heart is so desperate to sow.

And do me a kindness by not blaming the faults of evil on your prescription for the christian moral code. Does china not have tyrants? Do you not hold that american jews must inevitably share in the same culpability as you attribute to christians for the presence of evil?

If not, why? Do you align with jewish moral code? Why not say so earlier rather than stew in aimless frustration. Why would you dump your emotional baggage if you already found a suitable solution for such problems.

I almost regret asking you AGAIN. Are you looking for detailed, line by line biblical advice on how to engage with institutions that didn’t exist thousands of years ago? Are you hoping that it grants you permission to kill with reckless abandon?

Long winded is bad. Providing a link in lieu of doing the talking myself—also bad. Somehow having the option of viewing a few passages that touch on a common topic is overkill, yet also an indication of my failure to penetrate into an obtuse sentiment you refuse to unpack. Plus, you seem to regard everything I seem to say as either random or offensive.

And how many times do I have to ask you what guidance is it that you expect to find? It’s strange to think that you must be looking for line by line instruction as to what to do to whom and when, or for permission to do terrible things.

Like are you okay? It kinda sounds like you may have some personal strife you need to deal with before you can take on the rest of the world. Many people are in the same position, and are just trying to make sense of it all. I don’t claim to have all the answers, but I’m willing to talk and listen to ideas you may have if you can be specific.

Jesus Christ is King, who holds the keys and weighs the heart of all.

Ok. Let’s take a step back. We have both made statements about the path forward that are not in disagreement. Yet I fail to understand what it is you expect to find that is not enumerated in the bible.

Can you answer me that?

And do you post about your efforts to contact lobbyists? Has it worked for you? Because to be honest, with your listening and comprehension skills as they are I can’t imagine you make convincing appeals to strangers.

Bro how are you real right now? You vehemently rejected my words only to say that organizing is the solution? As if I would oppose that?!!

You gotta chill with the unnecessary adversarial attitude. And for what it’s worth, here are a bunch of passages that discuss self defense in the face of law breakers.

I told you. Nullify their influence. Strengthen yourself and your community so that you can effectuate positive change and bring them to justice. That in and of itself is a difficult and noble pursuit. You have no idea what resolve is when you can’t even make a single step toward the problem we both identify, and I have yet to hear what your solution is that would be any more effective. Like what is it you are looking for anyway? A magic spell, a secret password, divine permission to murder and the power to get away with it, or some kind of anarchist’s cookbook to overthrow oppressive regimes?! Do you also think that your actions occur in a vacuum? That if you could only take out 1 baddie that the world would not also find a way of retaliation?

I answer your questions even if you don’t like them. Try to answer mine. A little bit of reciprocation would be much appreciated.

I would sooner say that those weak in spirit and faith in the Lord lack the mental fortitude and constitution to fight in accordance with His will. Those who sin, continue to sin, condone sin, and cannot summon forth the depth of heart to commune with their neighbor permit Evil to proliferate.

You could take the easier route and go dethrone tyrants as you see fit, but how would that not be akin to empowering evil? You are critical of christianity but how do you have the wherewithal to say that any other belief system weakens or refrains from worshipping it?

I’m genuinely curious as to what your alternative is that addresses the problem of evil.

And as a side note, Have you read any of Nietzsche? Thinking of the master/slave systems of morality.

Unless you explicitly say what the connection is between the title of the book I included and that decidedly unrelated witticism I won’t completely understand what point you’re making.

As far as I can tell, the bible doesn’t advise the forceful removal of tyrants, if by forceful you mean murder. Seek to nullify their influence—on yourself, your family, and your neighbors. Win them over by the example you set in your heart and in your actions.

Like I’ve said before, it’s no easy task. Rather than see oppressive tyrants as your primary enemy maybe start with the oppressive division they foment.

I mean romans 12:2 is an invitation for your own verification what it is that is God’s will. I haven’t heard a valid argument from your end as to what is wrong with the substance of the section.

I think you are conflating culturally inherited customs with one’s alignment to their own spiritual journey. There are tons of people who either make the choice to fall away or come closer to religious practice, whatever form that may take. Likewise, I can say to you that the rejection of Christianity is an idea you feel comfortable endorsing because that too is a cultural practice you have learned through osmosis. There is no shortage of people who were born into an American christian family but explore aspects of buddhism, atheism, hinduism, islam… whatever.

Expanding on that, religious persecution is also not something you’ve directly addressed, but one that plays a role in the religious landscape within a nation or region. As a general rule, no two religions will handle outsider belief systems equivalently. Try considering the experience of a Uighur in China, or a christian woman in Iran, and compare that to the degree of religious freedom we experience in the states.

And just sayin, if you are unfamiliar with the bible you aren’t exactly in a position to pretend like you understand how it treats the topic of judgment of non-christians.

I’m pretty vocal about making the correct distinction between election fraud and voter fraud. While the most prolific form of election malfeasance was actually election fraud (who counts the votes and how they are tabulated), Reuters wants to instill the idea that widespread voter fraud did not exist, therefore conversations about election fraud are a non starter for those who live under a rock, because there was “NO WIDESPREAD VOTER FRAUD, INSURRECTIONISTS!”

I’m not sure what you mean by mainstream, but it sounds like you meant it with a similar derogatory tone as a teen attracted to some flavor of counterculture would mean it. By comparison, when we refer to major media networks as mainstream it’s because there are other platforms out there which put forth different and sometimes competing perspectives—however I’m just trying to stick to what can be pulled directly from the bible itself.

Sure, there are plenty of writings out there that haven’t made final cut into the holy bible of today. You are absolutely free to go find them and read them, but they are not considered “inspired” and necessary instruction for you to find grace.

Also, what do you suspect the edited out “empowering parts” might say?

Those who deny God make as if they are the God of their own lives, but what have you done that compares to the creation and order of the Universe that you should be deserving of glory?

Platitudes aside, if you do not know what to pray for, start first from a position of humility and seek guidance. You must be the one to knock on the door.

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” [Romans 12:2]

So why pray? Why go to church? For one, following the word of God is no easy lifelong task, and you cannot by yourself expect to harness the discipline or sense of purpose to walk the narrow path. But God wants you to be happy, productive, and fulfilled, and it’s by the example you put forth that those around you can come to know the value and inner serenity of accepting His grace.
