Transhumanism & The Control Over The "Religious Scaffolding" In The Name Of Social Control - Erecting The Foundation For The New "Tower Of Babel", Assured That By The New Anchor Drilled Into Bedrock Will Keep It Standing, While Failing To See That This 'Bedrock' Itself Is Encased In Sand


The information from "Transhumanism" was retrieved from the "Subrealism" blog.
I still have more research to do before I connect my analysis that will be presented here to the owner of the "Subrealism" blog.

Ted Peters makes an astounding argument that likely flew over many people's head.

NO DOUBT that Stephens comes from the body of 'Atheistic Secularists' who dismiss today's religious order as based upon 'old myths, fables and fairy tales', YET when he talks about the way forward in the area of 'social control' in order to achieve his ends - GUESS WHAT INSTITUTION he refers to as the most effective means of achieving HIS ends?

You got it - ORGANIZED RELIGION.


(Brief side track, but related)

The Secular Progressive "Climate Change" Operatives Who See 'Right Wing Evangelical Christianity's' Version Of 'God' As A Threat To Their Own Goals Of Social Regulation Through Government, First Dismissed As Incredible The 'Christian Narrative', Are Now Seen Working Through The Church Scaffolding (See The Catholic Pope) As The Vehicle Through Which Their Agenda Can Be Advanced



I document the above transformation of strategy (from left to right) not to make a political point but to note the importance of INSTITUTIONS and the CO-OPTING OF EXISTING SOCIETAL RITUALS as the most effective means for change.

Absence the use of VIOLENCE to affect abrupt change, the use of institutions, propaganda and attrition (the death of old ideas as the old people die off) is the most effective tool.

One should notice, however, that the same forces that repudiate "Creationism" and "Intelligent Design" as being anti-science - are themselves not making mention of:

  • Darwin
  • Evolution
  • Adaptation
  • Survival Of The Fittest
Where as the Christian makes note of his "God and Jesus" to explain the origins of flora, fauna and mankind - the secularist who cleaves to science as his bible makes use of his own "JESUS MAGIC" - which is called TIME.  

In response to the question about ADAPTATION as the best recourse against a "Mass Extinction" due to global climate change, the 'Secular Scientist' tells you "MY GOD NEEDS MORE TIME TO ADAPT TO CHANGES IN CLIMATE.  These changes happen over TIME and are imperceptible, so we need COORDINATED CHANGES IN GOVERNMENT PUBLIC POLICY to  prevent this cataclysmic our scientific method warns about our future".

As the forces with Religious garb but Secular outcomes take in this agenda and apply the "Jesus narrative", they dispense of the charts, graphs and ice core samples that are the tools for communication in "science" and instead apply this narrative to the scaffolding in a manner more accepted by their congregation:  "JESUS Told Us To Care For The Earth And Animals That He Blessed Us With So That We Might Be Prosperous".


We SHOULD NOT base our inspection upon the words spoken from the pulpit, for they are of the same cadence but differing 'agendized thrust'.  

It is more logical to look at the reactions by the SECULAR PROGRESSIVE (former) CHURCH CRITICS, who previously vowed to remove "religious influence" from the information sources that a voting citizen draws from as he enters the voting booth to make PUBLIC POLICY DECISIONS that impact people who reside outside of his worship temple.

You will see that they are PLEASED that the force that was once a threat has now "Gotten Religion" behind their initiative and plan to use the "Church Scaffolding" to achieve these ends, that once resided in the wilderness, now canonized as official church doctrine AND "The Will Of Jesus", thanks to the constant repetition that once said to be a province of the WEAK MINDED RELIGIOUS DEPENDENTS. 

Indeed The Secular Scientists Can GET RELIGION, Putting Aside His Own 'Scientific Bible' When The Magic Trick Called "EVOLUTION" Did Not Prove To Be Reproducible At The Time When It Was Needed The Most To Affirm Their 'Scientific Method' As SUPERIOR TO RELIGIOUS MYTHOLOGY.   One just need sell them a "HEAVEN" that is in line with their worldy agenda of - SOCIETAL CONTROL 



Transhumanism Returns To Align Religion And Culture - To Achieve Its Desired Ends


Again THE VIDEO ABOVE FLEW OVER MOST OF YOUR HEADS.

When someone who is a critic of your religion in its present form, indicating that it is an aggregation of centuries of myth, theft, war, slavery and pacification of the marginalized majority - is now seen ENGINEERING A NEW USE for a "NEW RELIGION" - the debate no longer should be about "RELIGIOUS TRUTH" ("Is There A God", "Was What You Presently Believe STOLEN From Past Cultures During Conquest", "Why Does The Bible Seem To Acknowledge Slavery Rather Than Aggressively Repudiate It"?) and instead you should focus on THE POWER THAT RELIGION WIELDS TO ALIGN AN INDIVIDUAL/GROUP'S:

  • Channeled Hopes For The Future
  • Emotions And Pains
  • Willingness To Submit Themselves 
  • Affirmed Faith Via The Donation Of Their Money And Time
WHY WOULDN'T A COLONIZER SEEK TO CONTROL THIS POWERFUL INSTITUTION AS HE IS INFORMED ABOUT WHAT PREVIOUS COLONIZERS ACHIEVED IN THEIR POWER OVER 'MAN'?

COST - The Failure To Recognize It, In Its Multitude Of Manifestations, Means That You Will Always Be A "Consumer And A Slave"



I am accessing the knowledge of some brilliant, insightful people who I find have a more finished model of the world of human thought and behavior and history than I have previously considered.

One such person introduced the concept of COST as a critical factor in human choices.

If the COST of a particular choice or set of choices are removed from consideration then such a body of choices, lacking a more complete set of information to the consumer, can produce BAD "PURCHASES".  

A "Bad Purchase" is one that does not align with the long term interests of the person whose POV we are considering.   Had that person had a more complete set of information, he would have likely made a different set of choices.


COST

The above picture from "Wikipedia" whittles the concept of "Cost" down to "Money".   I disagree with this.

Though money is a shorthand for VALUE, it is more accurate to look at the array of RESOURCES that this consumer in our POV has at their own discretion and the choices that they make surrounding their trades and/or attention to it as an asset.  This asset can appreciate or depreciate - mostly based upon the VALUATION that a human being places upon it.  Value (as in a house) is determined by what someone is willing to pay for the asset if it is traded.

What if "THE STATE OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT" was seen as a POTENTIAL ASSET and all of the choices of how we spend our time or prioritize the resources that we have at our disposal as the INVESTMENT - akin to the "Upgrade Of A Home", to increase the FUNCTIONALITY (Benefit) of that reference - again - with reference to the VALUES OF THE CONSUMER who is in our POV scope?

Could we then agree that education of that human resource, which would in turn give that resource more competencies is a CHOICE and thus has a COST assigned to it?    Surely the COST of failing to educate this person has some measurable costs (the cost that it will take to supplement their living up to the prescribed 'standard of living') and the OPPORTUNITY COSTS - in that, with the proper guidance they could have been a physician.   The opportunity cost in this case is not the salary as a physician but the competency to FULFILL THE NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY - in this case health care.

Teaching Your Children Through Transitive Governance - If You Don't Get Your Friends To Respect MY HOUSE Then YOU Are Going To Suffer The Consequences


  • "Nigger"
  • "Bitch"
  • "Mother Fucker"

A house full of neighborhood kids.

I am sitting in my kitchen reading the newspaper.

I hear them upstairs on the computer.
All of a sudden some music starts playing in the background.

I THINK I hear the words above.   I let it pass because I am not sure.
Then the "Hip Hop Voice Of The Street Pirate" rapper - repeats the chorus.  

"I DO NOT WANT THAT TYPE OF MUSIC IN MY HOUSE!!!"

Visitor: "What did he say?"

Daughter: "HE SAID Turn Your iPhone Off"


When the visitors left I asked my daughter who that was playing the music.

She told me and said that she was not paying attention to what (the boy) was playing with his phone connected to her Bluetooth speaker.  She was on the computer with the (girl) who was also there.

"How is it that you were sitting right there and not hearing when I was one floor away and heard it all?"

"The last time your friends came over they broke the brick that I had outside and you didn't stop them!!"   (The paving stone that I use to keep the newspapers in the recycling bin from blowing away).   
"Do YOU go over his house and break things up?   So why do you all let your friends come over here and do things that YOU are not allowed to do at home?"



The offending teenager is a good kids.   In fact I was impressed by the fact that he came over to me and spoke to me and had a conversation about how I was doing.

I like his parents and they are fun to be around.   I can only guess that they don't have a problem with him playing this IGNORANT music aloud in their house, or else he wouldn't have done it in mine.

The next time I see him I am going to ask him about this music, tell him MY STANDARDS and then tell him about the other set of "Young Black Males" who were playing this type of music at the subdivision club house as the pool was filled with parents and their young children, enjoying a summer night in a suburban subdivision.

Unfortunately they were also SMOKING WEED in public.  Their actions drew someone to call the police.   

The failure for them to take my advice to LOOK AT YOUR SURROUNDINGS caused them to spend some time in jail, as their mother frantically watched as they were being taken away.  (She blaming the "Racist Neighborhood")

HOWEVER if she would have laid the groundwork for her sons to better appreciate the STANDARDS THAT ARE ENFORCED and to STAY WITHIN THE BOUNDS, only allowing any attention to be drawn their way due to POSITIVE EXCEPTIONALISM then my subsequent conversation with them would have been unnecessary.

In my years of observation - the retirement of strict rules of behavior might temporarily benefit those who push the edge.  IN THE LONG RUN when the community STOPS ENFORCING THESE STANDARDS and the standard LIVES DOWN TO the "Do What The Hell You Want To Do" - then the entire community implodes as those who "kept it under their breath" for "one last time" start to move and the property values plummet as it is no longer a desirable place to live.

"Good Times" - "The Baby" Episode Is An Excellent Reference Of How Much America (And Black Americans) Have Changed In The Area Of "Black Child Birth" And Have Not Changed About "Welfare"


I originally said I was going to keep this post in draft mode until I purchase the "Good Times" episode and embedded the video.

The narrative of the episode "The Baby" was like experiencing a time warp.

Picture this:

  • A Black female character pops up out of nowhere for this episode
  • She is a married, mother of 4 existing children and she gets pregnant by her husband again
  • They are too poor to keep this additional child so the woman plots on DOING THE "UNTHINKABLE"
  • What is the UNTHINKABLE?......................................
    • NO NO NO, not ABORTION - as would be the message today
    • Back in the mid 1970's when "Good Times" was running the writers chose to GIVE THE BABY UP FOR ADOPTION
STOP RIGHT THERE!!!

In watching the two matriarchal females - Florida and Wilona, expressing concern for what this woman might do with her baby - I can think OF NO PRESENT DAY SHOWS that would have presented these nuances.  ("It is your baby.  Girl you MUST do the right thing and carry it to term' We'll help your through it.")

Of course the writers created an artificial mini drama, teasing the audience that the choice was "Abortion".  We know that abortion was legal during that time in America.



DOES ENTERTAINMENT REFLECT THE POPULAR WILL OR DICTATE IT?



I say both.




Not My POLITICAL Blog: Notice How Progressive Advocates Present Their Efforts As Fighting "Right-Wing Extremists" But Are Never Forced To Document The (Organic) SUBSTANCE Of Their Efforts (Beyond Fighting)



I have given up trying to embed C-SPAN Book TV videos.  Here is the link for you to view for yourself.


THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL ANALYSIS.
THIS IS A PATTERN ANALYSIS

Few sane people would disagree that the "Middle East IS IN NEED OF A MAJOR REFORMATION" - and that "Political Islam" must be realigned to a set of more productive goals.
They are nothing more than Totalitarian Oppressors of a different mold.

When I hear the various voices of reform in the Middle East and then attempt to categorize them with regard to well known assignments - the Progressive Feminist rears her head - in this particular video.

When Mona Eltahawy gives a "Shot Out" to - and I'll use her words: "The three Black Queer Feminists in America who started the BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT" the true agenda of her rants were uncovered.

I am trouble to see "People Of Color" (Black Americans) who are so cocooned inside of their own "Racial Political Religion" inside of America that they become IGNORANT to the plight of other Black people in the diaspora whose plight has absolute legitimacy.

The main resource that this other group of Black people - with far greater numbers - lack , is the American media propagation.

The worst thing that could ever happy to the continuing integration and colonization inside of America is to have the "Black subject" splitting their loyalties between their American interests and a true commitment to the plight of others outside of the realm that they are most comfortable with.


If you notice, Ms Eltahawy focus on the RIGHT-WING (fundamentalist) elements of Islam.  
I have no particular problem with the label if used inside of the container of her nation of Egypt.

It is when Ms Eltahawy used her own PROGRESSIVISM to take a trip around the world and unite disparate FEMINIST MOVEMENTS - that everything fell apart.

If her logic holds - the "American Right-Wing" who is gunning for war with the "Islamic Right-Wing" should be seen as equal fundamentalists and that they lack of willingness to become "Progressive" is the source of the violence.

But we see (both) a Progressive US President who is continuing the war against these "Right-Wing Islamic force" AND a former "US Secretary Of State" (Hillary Clinton) who also supported war in the neighboring Libya - who are carrying out what our entrenched labels would call "Right-Wing American Policies" against the Middle East.

Of course this does not mesh with reality.

Ms Eltahawy speaks of "Women Wanting To Control Their Own Bodies".  Indeed this is a universal Feminist / Progressive mandate.

The reason why I put this post upon my "Cultural Strategist blog" is because the mandate that Ms Eltahawy is pushing IS BASED ON NOTHING other than "Feminist/Progressive" notions of FREE WILL.

If the CONSERVATIVES are battling with "Women's Bodies" to entrench their political interests...............What might the PROGRESSIVE FEMINISTS be doing?

OK - you say "Your Body.  You get to make the decisions".
Fair enough.

This level of comfort that you pontificate is a FUNCTION of the system whereby everyone submits to rule of law and order - so your human rights as a female can be respected.

It is clear that in a state of chaos women and children are the primary victims.
Yet Ms Eltahawy is so bathed in Progressive theory that she can't see that her dual mistake of demanding reforms based upon a destination with little substance AND (ironically) speaking of the Male/Female interrelationship near exclusively from the Woman's Feminist agenda makes it impossible for any of these societies to reach a desired state of reform.

The Elephant In The Room: Lesbian Couple Who Become Pregnant Together Have To Give A Narrative As If No Man Is Involved, UNTIL Such Time That Technology Makes It So




INDEED THE SECULAR PROGRESSIVE IS A "HUMANIST"

JUST LOOK AT THE HEALTH RELATIONSHIPS THEY PRODUCE AS THEY BEAR CHILDREN AND THE "PHYSIOLOGICAL CHALLENGES" THEY HAVE OVER COME TO RECREATE HUMAN LIFE (Sarcasm)

ANALYSIS: "The Prancing Elites" And The Debate On (So Called) Tolerance Is A Necessary Phase In The Cycle Of Our Larger Cultural And Social Debate


Once again a reminder.
This is my "Cultural Strategy" site and not my "hammer" blog.

The opening segment of the new show on the Oxygen TV network called "The Prancing Elites Project" injected an important concept that we all need to talk about: TOLERANCE (and Diversity).

"The Prancing Elites" a group of Black gay male/transsexual dance troop, modeled after the all female Jackson State University "J-Settes" showed their saga as they attempted to gain access as performers in public parades.

While other parts of the nation "accepted" their presence in these parades, "The South" showed resistance to their gender bending presence in "Family events".   In THEIR VIEW, the SOUTH NEEDED TO EVOLVE and stop their "HATRED".


I typically give the new style "Black Samboette Reality Shows" one full season of viewing in order to understand what I am dealing with.   I got through about 10 minutes of this show.

Indeed I yelled out the word "Faggots" as I watched.   But I have learned in another medium:  "When a CHRISTIAN PREACHER MAKES ME CURSE UPON HEARING HIS SERMON..................Either HE is telling me a Christian principal that I have never heard of that has rocked me so much that I AM UNWILLING TO CHANGE or, more likely - HE IS A FRAUD and the fact that HE triggered such a response out of ME while the rest of the congregation who are further ahead in their indoctrination process all failed to walk out of his church, which is the proper response.


PUT ALL OF YOUR NOTIONS OF "CHRISTIANITY" ASIDE AND LET US FOCUS ON 'CULTURAL AND SOCIAL STRATEGY'

This is NOT a post about 'God' or "Religion".
It is stunning to see so many "Fundamentalist Christians" fall for the trap that "The Oxygen Network" is being used as the vessel through which they are made to say:  "BECAUSE IT IS AGAINST MY RELIGION" when someone presses them with a blistering series of "WHY's?"


  1. "Why do you STILL feel this way?"
    "Why won't you EVOLVE?"
  2. "Why do you HATE ME when I am projecting so much LOVE into the society?"
  3. "If you are a CHRISTIAN who proclaims to FOLLOW JESUS why don't you accept me as JESUS accepted those who society discarded?"

All of these taunts are said to "Have The Other Bastard Die For His Own Country And Religion".

We need to put aside the "Jesus Magic", just as I argue that the "Mystical Magical Africa Of Our Ancient Ancestors" is an ethereal notion that prevents otherwise rational people from noting that GOVERNANCE and MANAGEMENT toward a certain societal end - IS NECESSARY, but most important ATTAINABLE - without the MAGIC that prohibits it to all but the "Prophets" who have special powers or gifts of elocution to lead people on.  (But enough about "The Reverend" Michael Eric Dyson - Jesus' Political Campaign Adviser.


The "Jedi Mind Trick" that the ideology of the people who brought us "The Prancing Elites" WANTS YOU to disarm your worldly references to "Norms" and focus upon (their version) of "LOVE, DIVERSITY AND ACCEPTANCE".

The sad part about all of this fraudulent scheme is that EVERY social scientist and human and animal psychologist would tell of the MANDATE for a society or herd to have 'NORMS" that they enforce upon everyone in the collection.

The PERVERSION is not that there are Black males projecting feminine behavior attributes, the PERVERSION IS that the forces who are projecting this want to PRETEND that those who are exhibiting backlash are the ones with THE PROBLEM.

I would condemn anyone who uses violence to push those who push the line upon "Normality", like "The Prancing Elites".    AND NO my rejection of them as being beyond my level of tolerance IS NOT giving a green light to those who do use violence.    I am no more condoning such behavior as these same critics would be willing to accept that "Hip Hop Voice Of The Street Pirates" entertainers are the reason for the drug trade and the "Disappearance Of 1.5 Million Black Males" into the so called "Prison Industrial Complex"  as published in the NY Times.  

It is their use of shaming and indictment, however, that is meant to PUSH PEOPLE WHO ARE OTHERWISE WILLING TO ENFORCE 'GENDER NORMS' INTO THE CLOSET - SHUTTING UP with their criticism.  

IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE 'CELEBRITY ENDORSERS OF THIS AGENDA', MAKING ACCURATE INFERENCES TO THEIR LARGER AGENDA IN OTHER DOMAINS



If I think that "Nene Leaks" and the entire "Housewives" franchise is "Samboette TV", then all fruit that is produced from this tree has listeria.

Yet when you look at the selective indictments of such "Sambo figures" (see "Shawty Lo" and "All My Babies Mommas" that were seen as "Too Far" and an "Embarrassment to Black People" ) it is when you ask the same people who can catalogue their HISTORY OF OPPRESSION based upon ARBITRARY LAWS to define why "All My Babies Mamas" was rejected while the long list of other shows that are equally ignorant, yet their stars appear upon the covers of the "Mentholated Black Media Pressgang" trade rags (Ebony, Jet, Upscale, Rolling Out, Sister2Sister, Essence, and the various 'Black Hair Care' mags) - we see that it is the AMERICANIZED BLACK COMMUNITY is equal in its ability to compromise itself, based upon popular whims. (and a good marketing agent).


"Man Has Not Changed".  Only TIME And TECHNOLOGY Has Changed

I suggest to "The Prancing Elites" to "FEAR NOT".   One day "Their Team" is going to be the ESTABLISHMENT POWER and they will be the one's using so called "hatred" to marginalize those "bigoted Christian minority" into keeping their "NORMS" to their damned selves.  

It is my belief that "Man" operates upon "Millennial Cycles".  That which is built up in abundance (I heard population projects of 12 BILLION by the end of the 21st century) collapses due to social and ecological forces.

When renewal occurs - the operating principles are NOT based upon amorphous "RIGHTS" or "TOLERANCES", but upon THE COMPLIANCE THAT IS NECESSARY for the human animal and his pack to SURVIVE, lest they die.

SHANE IDLEMAN: Biblical unity is unity with the Spirit—unity of doctrine and unity of truth—not unity for the sake of unity.

PERSONAL NOTE:

"Homosexuality", like so many other issues are merely diversions through which the people who have a malicious intent against people of faith from retaining the integrity of their faith (as expressed through the religious entity that aggregates it with the hope of projecting it into society).    By drawing us out on an extended debate, triggering many to blatantly compromise that which is clearly articulated in the biblical text - THEIR VICTORY IS NOT that which is seen in secular legislation, but by the number of so called "religious institutions" whose goals are indistinguishable from those of Secular Progressives, who previously stated their goal of removing "religious understanding" out of the voting booth.





7 Reasons Why Christians Are Divided On Homosexuality

Relating to people on their level and to love them regardless of their lifestyle is a mark of true Christianity. So why are many Christians divided? For example, much of the hate mail I received from this sermon clip featured by Charisma News was from "Christians":
How can both groups claim to be Christians and yet understand the Bible and God's attributes so differently? The answer is obvious: Biblical unity is unity with the Spirit—unity of doctrine and unity of truth—not unity for the sake of unity. The division is over truth. This is why we can't "all just get along."
Many err on the side of compassion. Jesus perfectly balanced grace and mercy with confrontation and correction. The Bible was written so that people would know the truth—the truth about God, creation, sin, and redemption. We are not called to make truth tolerable but to make it clear. When we lovingly challenge this lifestyle, we are not attacking, but rather, contending for what is right. We are to detest division within the church and work toward reconciliation whenever we can, but we must not confuse "attacking" with "contending." Compassion without truth is like a vehicle without an engine. It might look nice but its not going anywhere.
Many are not spending time in the Word. If you're not in the Word, the Word won't be in you. The majority of those defending homosexuality and gay-marriage probably don't spend time reading God's Word. As a result, the difficult things are avoided. Scripture is interpreted by experience and feeling—truth is relative to the situation rather than absolute. But the Bible says just the opposite.
I am deeply concerned with what I hear from many Christians today. They say that it's arrogant to claim that you know the truth. In reality, only arrogance can exalt one to a level that challenges God and His truth. It takes a great deal of humility to admit that personal opinions and beliefs are wrong when they oppose absolute truth.
Is it really a mark of humility to suggest that after nearly 2,000 years of church history, that some have actually discovered the real truth—that truth is now flexible in the area of human sexuality? If so, then it doesn't matter what Christ said, the disciples wrote, or what the early church fathers believed. Humility recognizes that we are fallible human beings who have sinned against God. His Word is a lifeline to our soul, an anchor for our lives; not something to be debated, altered, or misrepresented. We don't change truth—truth changes us.
The battle cry is focused on "rights." Would we say, "I believe that those who embrace pornography can live in harmony with biblical Christianity"? Or "I believe that those who embrace adultery can live in harmony with biblical Christianity"? Of course not. Unfortunately, one of the greatest mistakes in our culture today involves not being able to discern between right and wrong. The battle cry is focused on "individual rights," instead of what does God's Word say.
Grace and confrontation are not being balanced. It's unfortunate that Christians often embrace one of two extremes. At one extreme are those who insult those trapped in this lifestyle. Homosexuality and/or transgender tendencies appear at the top of their sin list. With this group, there is very little love or compassion. The other extreme excuses this sin and looks the other way. Both extremes are wrong and offer a false impression of genuine Christianity—Christ asks that we extend compassion but without compromise.
Many pastors are not teaching all of God's Word. As a result, congregants are malnourished in the area of truth. We must preach the difficult truths as well as the joyful ones; preach the cross and the new life; preach hell and preach heaven; preach damnation and preach salvation; preach sin and preach grace; preach wrath and preach love; preach judgment and preach mercy; preach obedience and preach forgiveness; preach that God "is love," but don't forget that God is just. Ironically, it's the love of God that compels us to share all of His truth, including those things that are hard to hear.
We want friends not enemies. Are those who defend homosexuality or who say nothing, truly loving them, or are they simply seeking to avoid conflict? If we are more concerned about being accepted than being truthful, do we really care for this group more than the person who is willing to speak the truth in love? The answer is obvious: We are to do what is right because it's right, not because it is popular. The heart of God is to help people, and that often involves lovingly confronting them. Authentic Christians love the truth, and others, and are willing to risk the consequences of confrontation in order to help others. This is a genuine act of love, not hate.
To say that authentic Christians hate or fear those trapped in the homosexual lifestyle demonstrates a gross misunderstanding of the Christian faith. To "confront in love" simply comes from a desire to honor God and to truly love and care for others. Warning, confronting, challenging, advising and admonishing are all characteristic of genuine love. Parents warn, confront, challenge and admonish daily. Truly misled or self-serving individuals would wrongly attribute these traits to "hate-speech."
There will be a great falling away from truth in the last days (cf. 2 Thess.). This should concern all of those who are being swayed by political correctness rather than absolute truth. Religious people often say "good things," but their hearts disobey. This is called religious hypocrisy. This is much different than a believer who struggles with sin. A religious person acts religious but doesn't know God. Jesus states, "These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me" (Matt. 15:8). A.W. Tozer adds, "Millions of professed believers talk as if [Christ] were real and act as if He were not. And always our actual position is to be discovered by the way we act, not by the way we talk."
When people depart from absolute truth, and thus quench and grieve the Spirit of God, they become mechanical in their approach to Christianity and lose the ability to guide. This is what we're seeing in the lives of many Christians and denominations across America. The Word of God is not in their hearts "like a burning fire" (Jer. 20:9), but relative, powerless and debatable.
Unfortunately, those Christians who are sounding the alarm are often categorized as irrational, judgmental, bigoted and intolerant. But how can we warn if we won't confront, correct if we won't challenge, and contend if we won't question? We must speak the truth in love.

How Diversions Like "Homosexuality" Are Being Used To Show That Many References To "Black Spirituality And Culture" To Be Fraudulent On The Way To Exploiting "The Lost Tribe"




Do not take this post to assume that I agree with what this woman on stage is saying.

I am only pointing out that she paints an "Intricate Wardrobe Of African Cultural Sophistication" as the basis for her authority.

BUT if there is a strident enemy seeking to strip our people down to our essential being as "selfish opportunists" is there a better way to ATTACK THESE PRINCIPLES - not with a direct frontal attack - BUT by using AMERICAN POLITICAL LOYALTIES that trick the unwary political loyalists to attack the very positions that their ancestors once held BUT do so today under the notion of "Justice and Equality"?


If it is true that "The Nature Of Man Does Not Change", only his access to technology and his mobility - then th question must be asked:  "When these ancient souls confronted these very same human-level conflicts - how did they regulate their people using culture and religious faith"?

History Channel's: "History Of The World In 2 Hours": "Jesus Magic In Science"



Is it possible that those who operate under the guise of "Science" but whose tactics are more like propaganda and perpetual repetition as a means of glossing over the irrationality in their claims - are in fact NOT SCIENCE?


My belief:

  • PHYSICAL SCIENCE:  (Geology, Cosmology, Planetary Science, etc) might be correct on the age of the universe (billions of years)
  • SHOULD NOT BE CONFUSED WITH BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE

I DO NOT believe in the "God Made The Universe In 7 Literal Days"

I DO NOT BELIEVE that "THE BIG BANG THEORY" and  EVOLUTION are legitimate models of reality.


"All of the matter in the universe came from ONE ATOM THAT EXPLODED billions of years ago".  (as claimed in this "science" documentary above).

Why is it that they are not forced to prove their supposition as are the people who say "God did it"?

THE ORIGINS OF LIFE is even more fraudulent. 
If "Life came to Earth" via living basic molecules that survived the trip through space in an asteroid - IT TOO had a common origin via the "Big Bang".  

SO AGAIN - where did this extraterrestrial life come from?

In Reviewing The '3rd Party Fight Promotion" Between Mike Huckabee And Michelle Williams Over Huckabee's Comments About Beyonce' The Conversation Focused On "Beyonce The Person" And NOT The Common "Christianity" That All 3 Of Them Claim


This is my "Cultural Strategy" blog and not my political analysis blog (See "Within The Black Community" for that) so I am going to take a different emphasis.

First of all - I have to credit Michelle Williams, former member of "Destiny's Child" and friend of Beyonce, for the composure in her response.

If you read the coverage of the interaction between "Williams" and  "Huckabee" on "The View" - from 3rd party sources you would swear that some (ignorant) smack down has taken place and "The White  ignorant ole man got checked".   Instead Michelle Williams showed some class in her public response.





The video above proved most instructive.

Rosy O'Donnell - the critic of "Christianity" said "YOU CAN'T MESS WITH THE BEY".

If you think about her argument it is 100% rooted in "SECULAR IDEOLOGY".

BY WHAT MEANS "can you not mess with the Bey"?
  • Because in her POPULARITY she is always right?
  • Because she has some type of grounding that all of us should yield to?
The truth is - Beyonce' is every bit of the "CAPITALISTIC 1%" that most people on the panel on "The View" rail against.   The difference is - Beyonce' is not a "Wall Street Capitalist" and doesn't appear on the people's 'dart board'.

My greatest criticism, however is reserved for the missed opportunity shared by "Mike Huckabee" and "Michelle Williams".

Huckabee the "Former Christian Preacher" and Michelle Williams the "occasional Christian gospel singer" have ONE COMMON ORACLE that they should have agreed to YIELD THEIR PERSONAL SENTIMENTS TO as they appraise "Beyonce's work" NOT BASED UPON HER PERSONAL CHOICES but instead based upon what SHE PROFESSES TO BE - A CHRISTIAN.

Indeed people are influenced by the messages that Beyonce and others who "contribute to our CULTURE" put forth in "the water that we drink".    As a christian we are asked to SWIM AGAINST THE TIDE and retain the integrity of our faith in "Jesus Christ".


Mike Huckabee - though I can understand (after reading "Kelvin Cochran's book "Who Told You That You Were Naked" which was written to WAYWARD YOUNG MEN, with the hopes that they would find a purpose in their lives) how an author can resent having a small passage in his book be maligned and molested so that the constructive message is filibustered out of the discussion, Huckabee failed to bring the argument into this COMMON REFERENCE for scrutiny.

Michelle Williams, defended her friend - saying that these two songs - as a small part of a larger whole, were "freaky songs" (my words) that "Beyonce had pinned up within her".   Williams, ironically was asking Huckabee to not tarnish the greater whole of the album based on these two songs.

I can't accept this as an argument for the very same reasons why I firmly stand by THE MESSAGE that Kelvin Cochran has put forth.

The consistency is in "The Word" - and the "one part per million" that some are OFFENDED by:
  • In the case of "Who Told You That You Were Naked" - critical references to "Homosexuality" as "Unclean Living
  • In the case of "Beyonce" - Two "Freeky Tracks" on an album that had about 10 songs
the COMMON REFERENCE that all yield their arguments to should prevent people from "Majoring In The Minors" BUT ALSO - prevent the old adage from becoming true:

"When a large bag of SUGAR is mixed with a small piece of FECES - ONLY ONE OF THEM retain their original integrity".

When My Close Family Friends Divorce I Can't Help But To Consider "What Could I Have Done To Help?"

Recently my wife told me that a pair of family friends have chosen to get a divorce.  

This couple who was once the core of our "house party circuit" seemed to be happy together.  They had a bond that produced 3 children and an upper-middle class amount of comfortable living.

When they moved away a few years ago - under the guise of a "job promotion" I called them brave for "Following Their Dreams".    Now I wonder if they moved in order to "disconnect" from their network of friends  (Us) so that they can either "work it out" or "go their own separate ways".

I have some other group of friends who I met in college and they all settled in the metro-Atlanta area.   Over time we gathered together for house-parties and to watch "Mike Tyson" destroy his adversaries - and for membership in an "Investment Club" - back when the "Internet Bubble" had made it easy to make you believe that you were an "expert stock analyst".

The subsequent years in which we "got married", "had children" and, in some cases, moved to a larger house - all worked to reduce the number of occasions that we'd get together at a "house party".
In some cases I am astounded and anger that they "little baby" is now a teenager.   How did a person who I spent nearly every weekend with fall out of my "inner circle"?


Updated today - the news that these close friends are now parting ways "hurts me inside".

"What if my wife and I worked harder to break out of our own shell to reach out to these friends?  Would this have been the spark to keep them together?"   A question that a lot of "children of divorce" ask relative to their parents.


There is no question that when friends come to my own house - it draws us all away from our "individual televisions" into the family room.   We play "dominoes"and "bingo" (or any other cheap game I purchase at Wal-Mart/Toys R Us), fight over a movie to watch on "Netflix" before reaching "cross-generational agreement".  But most of all the CONVERSATION is key.

I hear my wife tell me details about her recent experiences that she did not describe for me.  It is also true that I am guilty of the same.    The point is that you can learn more details about your "life partner" by having a person from another time in their lives - coming for a visit and provoking the MEMORIES that your own conversations did not provoke for discussion.

If there is any solace to the end of these married relationships - it is that I can think of none of my friends who divorced with "elementary school aged children" still at home.   At worse - they part ways when the kids are in high school, but most frequently it is after the kids have left for college.

I know none of them in which "physical violence" or abuse was the issue that broke them apart.  The quest for "happiness" beyond the frequent arguments and also "infidelity" appear to be the primary points of separation.
