Get Vaxxed Before It's Too Late!


(John 3:19-21)


Many years ago, Tony Campolo said to me on the Corner of 55th and Oak in Kansas City, "One of my favorite things is to listen to smart people speak so stupidly."

Around the same time, Jerry Kirk said to me as he lamented the spiritual distancing from God in Jesus by the book as enlightened by the Holy Spirit who never contradicts Jesus by the book in his ecclesiastical franchise and pyramid scheme, "I don't expect people that don't believe in Jesus to believe and behave like Christians; but I expect people that say they believe in Jesus, like clergy in our denomination, to believe and behave like Christians."

The CCPC19 is unprecedented, fluid, and incrementally unfolding with diametrically opposed "experts" on its magnitude and duration.

In other other words, people pretending to know but don't know are masking another agenda and using it to manipulate, intimidate, and control the willfully ignorant.

Wasn't it Rahm who said with glee, "Every crisis is an opportunity to advance our agenda"?

BTW, have you ever compared the confessing movement of Barth, Bonhoeffer, Niemoller, and Barmen to the clergy of Germany and Europe that enabled the Nazi seizure of power?

I may be wrong but I see a striking similarity between the faithful bravehearted remnant and fainthearted clergy only coincidentally/religiously related to Christianity in America today.

Hosea 4.

Just saying.

The confessing movement in opposition to the Nazis believed in Jesus by the book as enlightened by the Holy Spirit who never contradicts Jesus by the book and never bent forward with a baaaah-baaahing idolatry to government, ecclesiastical franchises and pyramid schemes, education, or anyone or anything else detracting or distancing from the affirmation, allegiance, and affection due God alone.

Read the first table of the big ten in Exodus 20.

While I don't pretend to know a lot of things like some people who know less as blinded by their ideological and ecclesiastical idolatries, Psalm 62 and Acts 5:29 speak louder and louder and...in these days of increasing deception enabled by...

Go back to the quotes by Campolo and Kirk...

It's time to stop playing church and be Church.

Romans 12:1-2.
