I’m a Nazi… So what?

Ok my leftist friend, you caught me – I confess… I’m a full fledged Nazi. 😗

I sleep with a copy of Mein Kampf, I support racism, and especially hate the Jews. Yup, you had me pegged all along – I guess your too smart even for me 🤗

Siege Heil der Fürher!!!

There I admit it and look…. No one even cares.

Now that aside, on a serious note I’m just going to say to the left – one day  REAL Nazism will make a come back. And when it does the left will cry out “He’s a nazi, that’s facism”- and I guarantee, no one will care or even bat an eye to try to stop it… And the average SJW will only have themselves to blame. Just as it was in Germany in the 30’s, National socialism did not happen over night – it came by stages. The first stage was desensitization… and it only took about a decade for the rest to fall into place.

“It doesn’t matter what they say about you, as long as they spell your name right.”

By unrelentingly calling people a nazi or racist or facist, the only thing you achieve is desensitization of the term. More over, I guarantee 99% of the people you call a “Nazi” are not – but what they will do is look into actual Nazism just because you keep calling them that… Its a bit like advertiseing it inadvertantly. Of a truth, were already starting to see this phenomenon happen…. I direct your attention to a film circulating on the internet called;

“The Greatest Story Never Told- Adolf Hitler” …. Just this film has gained a growing and loyal fan base over the past few years, and the creator made a cozy career off it just on donations…. That and it’s also observable book sales  of mein kampf are in the rise in western countries like never before 2013…

Not to mention this is just plain childish and frankly it comes off as calling someone a “Witch”…. The left is flattered to be thought of as ‘forward thinking’, yet they seem intent on being stuck to ideas dated in 1492. Frankly, if I had to choose between Hitler or a child – Hitler actually has alot more intelligent things to say. Which does not speak to volumes of today’s left. Its easy to see how how he got support after the 1920’s Wiemar republic – and frankly the times are not too dissimilar for his rhetoric to resurface…  If you are advertising hitler in this way, Truely you don’t want to advertise him or his ideas – especially in this way. People will actually and unashamed become Nazis. Its easy for someone weaker minded then myself who would actually take it as the only other option the world has to offer.

It’s time to just let Hitler be dead – it’s been 70+ years. The sooner we bury this straw man, and actually educate people on him in a constructive way rather insults and baseless accusations, the better  off society will actually be.

Personal property vs private property 

Personal property means your house and your stuff. 
Private means something like an investment property or factory, or buisness. 
Private property is considered bourgeoisie property to exploit the proletariat…. however “Exploitation”, is subjective in communism, owning something is stealing/exploiting from someone else. And you can’t actually sell your own personal property as an investment either… so in communism, there’s algorithms you have to sift through untill it’s clear you will be assigned a house by the collective…. However they want to make that sound better so “Personal Property”

My Take on Healthcare 

There is a take on healthcare from the christian perspective I think that’s seldom ignored. Yet sadly many Christians are getting swept up into the states rhetoric, or just following certainly leaders blindly. 

Have you ever noticed the lost world always tries to stay young, look young or live longer…. It’s from a fear of death…. As if in some subconscious wisdom, they know they do not have eternal life. The entire debate on healthcare is centered on this fear. Never… in the history of America, or really christiandom, has there been such a fervent push for health care. Yet of course I know it’s perpetuated also by pharmaceutical companies… 

The contrast being, as Christians we have no fear. Atleast to me, it’s fine if I died tomorrow – I know where I go and what to atleast generally expect. I’m a person who takes care of himself and never goes to the doctor. In some ways, I even consider death a release from this wretched world I’m stuck in. Frankly I would prefer to go home then be a slave to a doctor – and indeed, the chronically ill in this country are slaves to their doctors. 

That’s just me though. 

So, I’m sitting here watching the satanic forces at work around this issue. I pray for our nation…. Not for our health, but for our minds. We truely are a brainwashed society – I just didn’t realize how much so before. 

Christianity vs. Statism 

Taken from unnamed facebook writer. 
The overall scriptural narrative is anti-imperial. The “great” kings like Pharaoh and others are foils to show the true greatness of God. In 1 Samuel 8, the people ask for a human king, and god sees this as a disaster, as being opposed to his own kingship.  At best, governments are a mere concession on God’s part to humans.
As John Howard Yoder points out, even in the temptations of Jesus (Matt. 4:1-11, Luke 4:1-13) indicate a rejection of worldly power.  The third temptation of Christ is “the kingdoms of the world and their splendor,” which Satan can give Jesus if he pays obeisance to Satan. Satan is considered “the Prince [ruler] of this world” and is quite sincere in his offer, and Jesus, who is the messiah, did not brush it off as impossible. But Jesus seems to understand that the kingdoms of this world do belong to Satan, and his followers should not think otherwise. Furthermore, the theme of Babylon as an evil state under the influence of Satan permeates the book of Revelation. In Revelation 18:4, for instance, God exhorts His church to “come out of her [Babylon], my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues.”
The differences between the kingdom of man and the Kingdom of God is fundamental to understand. Indeed, this is the biggest mistake made throughout history. Theologians like John Howard Yoder call this problem “Constantinianism” in which the legitimized church gets entangled with the state, or embraces a “Christendom” that ultimately falls into the pattern of the world rather than be molded by Christ. This is not to say that Jesus is not at all “political,” and only focused on the spiritual (not stuff of life and resources here on earth). Just the opposite. Jesus is a King bringing forth the kingdom of God. So, the kingdom of God was itself, and remained, a thoroughly political concept. Jesus’ death was a thoroughly political event, and the existence and growth of the early church was a matter of community-building, in conflict politically, often enough, with other communities. 
 But Jesus explicitly says that, “My kingdom is not from this world… my kingdom is not from here” (John 18:36). The “rules of the kingdom” as explained in the Sermon on the Mount are unlike any sort of state laws that have ever existed. Furthermore, it is not the job of the Christian to use physical force to bring about his kingdom, but rather to “seek first his kingdom and his righteousness” (Matt. 6:33). The kingdoms of man are founded upon power and violence, but the Kingdom of God is founded upon humility (Matt. 18:4), service (Matt. 20:26), and love (John 13:35). While we cannot help being entangled with/in states in this world, we are reminded once again that “our citizenship is in heaven” (Philippians 3:20).
The difference between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of the world comes down to the kind of power they trust. The kingdoms of the world place their trust in whatever coercive power they can exercise over others. We can think of this kind of power as the power of the “sword” (and that is the language of Romans 13 as well). In contrast, the kingdom of God refuses to use coercive power over people, choosing instead to rely exclusively on whatever power it can exercise under people. This is the transforming power of humble, self-sacrificial, Christlike love. Exercising power under others is about impacting people’s lives by serving them, sacrificing for them, and even be sacrificed by them while refusing to retaliate, as Jesus did. We can think of this kind of power as the power of the cross, for the cross is the purest expression of humble servant-like, self-sacrificial love. 
While the kingdom is in a sort of opposition to the nations, this doesn’t mean kingdom people are always to be law breakers. When laws conflict with the rule of God, of course, they must break them (Ac 5:39). But otherwise they are naturally to go along with them, for not doing so would unnecessarily get in the way of our call to build the kingdom. But we submit to laws not because they have ultimate “authority” over us, but primarily because we submit to God. This brings us to Romans 13 (and Titus 3:1-3, 1 Timothy 2:1-3, and 1 Peter 2:11-17).
Most importantly, Romans 13 must be read in conjunction with the verses that immediately precede it.  In this case, Romans 12:17-21. There are no chapter markers in the original text, and it only makes sense as a single unit. Scholars (again see Yoder for details) see the parallel structure in the language itself as impossible to be coincidentalI. In these passages Paul tells kingdom people they are to love and serve their enemies and never exact vengeance on them. Rather, we are to leave all judgment to God. Then, beginning in Romans 13, Paul tells us one of the ways God exacts vengeance on people: he uses governments. So God uses governments, as he finds them, to do the very thing he has just forbidden kingdom people to do. The passage thus shows not that Christians have a responsibility to participate in government, but that we have an obligation not to participate when it does things we as kingdom people are forbidden to do (like using violence against wrongdoers).
Verse 1 of Romans 13 says that state authorities are instituted by God. Paul’s primary message for Christians, however, is not that states are specially instituted in the same way as the family and church, but rather that the state is not operating outside of the plans of God. In this sense, the state is divinely instituted in the same way that Satan is divinely instituted. God is not surprised when states act the way they do. As noted specifically in the Gospels, the state is understood throughout Scripture as being intimately tied to Satan and his kingdom, and patently opposed to the kingdom of God. The state’s status within God’s ultimate plan does not legitimize the evil the state commits.
Submission to civil government, then, is always qualified. The command is to obey in general, but sometimes we will disobey public policy because of personal and Scriptural conviction. Christians are to obey most policy whenever directly requested to do so, but ensuring active compliance with every public policy is unnecessary. All submission is directed at being expedient and practical toward men and glorifying toward God.
Verses 2-4 indicate that if you irritate the state then you will face wrath, but if you behave in the way the state wants then they will be pleased. At many points, what the state defines as good and evil may be very much opposed to what God defines as good and evil. But what Paul is telling the believers in Rome is that if they do something that the Roman government defines as evil then they will likely be punished for it. We cannot overly abstract this verse from its cultural context and make it an absolute requirement on all cultures at all times. To do so would be to put Christians under a great bondage to bad public policy. There is no compelling reason to think that Paul was deliberately writing about any particular rulers other than those in the first century Roman Empire.
Paul knew full well the power of Nero and the potential harm he could cause to Christians in Rome via the common term of the times for such state power, “the sword.” He does not want believers to be persecuted for anything other than the name of Christ and what he stands for. Paul reminds the Roman Christians, though, that even the dreadful power of the state is not outside the power of God. His message to them is the same as Romans 8:28, that “all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.” Even the state or enemies can indeed be a means of sanctification for the Lord’s church.

Verses 5-7 expand upon the reasons for submitting and include practical ways the Roman Christians were to respond to Paul’s message. The reason we must submit to government is to avoid wrath or worrying about being harmed by the state authority. God does not want us to be entangled with the affairs of this world to the point where such involvement detracts from our primary mission. The believers were concerned that the Roman state would find a legal reason to persecute them.  Paul also says to submit to paying taxes for the same reason: avoiding state wrath in order to live for God, and be seen as good by others. 
The fact that Paul needs to stress the need for civil obedience itself tells fairly strongly, if paradoxically, in favor of this basic Christian Anarchist  anti-power-over perspective. It implies that, without some such restraining counsel, some might have heard Paul’s teaching to imply that the church was to become a Christian version of the Jewish zealots, owing allegiance to no one except God and therefore under obligation to rebel violently against human rulers, and to refuse to pay taxes. The paragraph can therefore be seen, not as evidence that Paul would not have been saying anything subversive, but that he had been, and now needed to make clear what this did, and particularly what it did not mean. It did not mean for the church taking up “the sword” themselves.
For Paul to even say that the ruler is answerable to God is itself a Jewish point over against pagan ruler-cult. Caesar did not, normally, owe allegiance to anyone except himself, and perhaps, though at a surface level, the traditional Roman gods. Paul declares, with massive Jewish tradition behind him, that Caesar is in fact responsible to the true God, whether or not he knows it. This is an undermining of pagan totalitarianism, not a reinforcement of it. 
Paul wants the Roman Christians to live appropriately in the tension between present and future. This does not mean, as Paul’s own example bears out, that one must be politically totally compliant or repressed until the final reappearing of Jesus. Preaching and living the gospel must always mean announcing and following Jesus, rather than Caesar, as the true Lord. But the eschatological balance must be kept. The church must live as a sign of the coming complete kingdom of Jesus Christ; but since that kingdom is characterized by peace, love and joy it cannot be inaugurated in the present by chaos, hatred and anger.
Romans 13 is not an abstract, blanket statement that requires submission to all state laws, in all places, for all circumstances, at all times. Nor is it a prescription for what particular form of government is sanctioned by God or for how states should act. The historical context and wording requires us to be careful when making pronouncements about what a Christian’s submission to the state looks like. 
Any Christian obedience to government is for the purpose of expedient peaceful living and bringing no dishonor to the name of Christ. It is part of enemy love as is explicitly clear from Romans 12. But we are not obligated to follow every jot of public policy. Moreover, we are not supposed to follow any law that goes against the law of God. If we are to be persecuted, it should be for the name of Christ and what he stands for, not for refusing to follow some random law when directly threatened by state action. Romans 13 is part of a radical message of an alternative way of living, even among the world at odds with the ways of the church. It is not a ticket to fall into the historical disastrous anti-gospel attempts at Christendom within the Constantinian paradigm.

Anarch Capitalism 101

How does anarchism work best. 

The capitalist answer would be to simply decentralize every one and every company. Let the market be constantly broken up with each company competing with each other. In this way, anarchism can thrive sustainablably, without ever allowing so much as the possibility of a state to form. There is unity in division by cooperation.

This is the contrast to communism of which “anarch communism” is of a truth an oxymoron, that still has an incomplete answer as to how it should function in any practical/permanent way. 

Why I am not against the Communist Christians

I have a christian anarchist group which is compiled of every kind of anarchist. Naturally with mixed company, people are bound to disagree – some so fervently they exile it altogether.In this group there is maybe 2 or 3 communists who actually post something against capitalism. Out of, oh 2000 anarch-capitalists I’m probably of the handful of who posts something about how great capitalism is…. Yet 2000 people get all riled up about how there’s communists in the group.

I’ve spoken with the communists about their views. Of course, they were all to happy to explain themselves. With consideration and respect I can’t help at disagree of course myself. However I can see very plainly they carry the spirit of christ about as much as the capitalists and therefore they are my brothers/sisters regardless. I am very much a capitalist, But I am first and foremost christian. Here’s the the bottom line of what I know for an absolute fact. Neither type of anarchy, communism or capitalism, will prevail in this world anyway – Scripture guarantees it, It’s almost a pointless argument.

We as Christians are here to wait for christ to rip down all of earth’s kingdoms and establish his millennial kingdom. In the meantime, we are like the Jews wondering in the wilderness. Frankly, what that entails, I’d like to think its a capitalist kingdom, but I’m open to being proven wrong. Until that day we all find out for sure, excuse me if I’m more interested in talking about the gospel.

Yes actually communism can work in millennial kingdom.

Oh sure, communism has failed miserably in times past. However it can not be ignored, scripture promises us each a mansion to be given to us. We will never thirst or hunger – so we can look past the possibility of bread lines. Jesus will be king of the kingdom – in itself makes ‘Christian Anarchism’ an oxymoron. Certainly, communism has failed in a imperfect world, but christ promises us he will make a perfect world.

….Then again, all of this can equally be achieved via capitalism. Yes labor has been exploited even under the name “Free Market”.  Certainly, corporations have and can replace the state – in fact the current president of America views the state as such a corporation that needs to be more efficient. Just as the communists so often contend, there is flaws in capitalism as well, though this is neo-conservativism/liberalism not anarch capitalism…. Again we are in a imperfect world. Capitalism can be perfected in Christ kingdom as it has just as much failed as communism in many regards. There are even things to be doubtful of Ludwig Von Mises’s presented model. The problem both sides know and fear is that, authority always has a way of centralizing itself. Whether socialist or capitalist – this is central to our dilemma.

Who knows – maybe we’ll find out the Anarch-Primitives had it right this whole time and were all wrong…

Since I’m thinking about Moses…

With that said, I’m reminded of something Moses said to the Israelite’s. After he discovered they were worshiping the golden cow. They broke out in argument with each other and immediately began splitting up. Those who wanted to follow the cow, and those who wanted to wonder around with Moses.

Moses shouted to the people who stood by him:

“Lay Them Waste

And they slathered those who wanted to follow the cow….

I look at the members in my Facebook group who want to leave, just because there’s 2 or 3  communists who posted about communism or capitialist said this and that. I can’t help at wonder if this would be the same reaction if Jesus said when he establishes his kingdom “We’re going to be a communist society”.  Yet I should say the same for the communists who get themselves in a uproar over the capitalist out come…. My heart would be grieved if christ gave me just such an order as Moses on that day – that I should have to boot a person out of his kingdom just over economic policy. Though, I don’t think it will come to that.

The last fact is, both of these ideas are man made and founded entirely by unashamed and fervent Athiests. Karl Marx, David Gaeber, Ayn Rand, Ludwig Mises – all of them made it no secrete they despise Christianity. Why were even listening to them is hypocrisy in of it self. Neither capitalist or communist knows what to expect when Christ’s kingdom comes, we can only follow in Christ’s general direction as far as ideals. We ourselves are not going to be the authors of his constitution – and I’m fairly sure he has something entirely different in mind.

Stop your bickering and just promote what you believe, not complain about what you disagree with in the meantime. My fellow capitalists I am ashamed in how sensitive you can be considering your the majority anyway :-/

The Greatest Sinner – a prayer 

“A certain moneylender had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. When they could not pay, he cancelled the debt of both. Now which of them will love him more?”Simon answered, “The one, I suppose, for whom he cancelled the larger debt.” And he said to him,“You have judged rightly.”- Luke 7: 41 – 43

This short parable, is so telling about me. I am the man who owes 500 denarii… 5000 denarii more likely. My sins are so many, and even after I am forgiven still I fight with myself.  

I am proud and boastful – downright arrogant. I burn with lust nearly every night Insufferably. I am slothful and indifferent. I lack manners or concern for others feelings…. I go to God and pray constantly to heal this side me, I hold back as best I can in life. I pray the spirit works in me away these things… Yet I am but a mild improvement after many years…. I am a man, that’s all I can be. 

Yet I’m told by some regardless of my belief in Christ I’m doomed to hellfire. I’m told I do not have the best of fruits of the spirit,  therefore I do not carry it at all – but it only strengthens my faith. While my sins are many – foolishness is thankfully not one of them. 

Thank you God for grace, even for a wretched creature like me. Thank you for not judging me the way people do. Thank you for telling me you will take me as I am and make me someday perfect. I know for certain I can have faith in none other to want me. I am truely humbled, and exalt your mercy. My aligence and my service is in you. If it’s deemed not good enough, I desire your wrath as I truely deserve it.

I know until it’s proven, to no one’s doubt, my name is in the book of life, my flesh will be gone and my spirit can only cling to you. I can do no other, and I’m grateful thats all you ask of me. Amen
