Sheepdog 108: World Government and the Cathedral
It’s another blank slate and fresh start. I am going to take a break and check in with my people, and I will continue to follow the leadership of the Holy Ghost, and then I will write here on how that goes.
Acts 6:7 (KJV) And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.
This is a note that I sent to a neoliberal friend of my bro’s. I am friends and friendly acquainted with a large and diverse multitude of people. Neoliberal is an accurate neutral and word in this case, and it’s the kindest word I can say of his politics.
Hi I saw that you are looking for political content that has value. Since the other thread became long, I made a new one. I recommend armstrongeconomics.com (independent economics) and globalresearch.ca (independent news). Both are essential imo. Global research tends to be moderate, and balanced. They have a mix of writers and some lean more socialist, so I can’t endorse all of their papers. Their money must be independent, because they write stories that are very damaging and harsh toward mainstream narratives.
Both of those media operations (armstrong econ and global res) will get you outside of the US-only media market. There is a history behind all the political rhetoric of today, and we ought to study primary source documents so that we can read the history for ourselves in its original text. For example, if you haven’t read the American Declaration of Independence in awhile, then you should.
On a similar note, I would also recommend the following speeches: George Washington’s Farewell Address, Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Farewell Address, and John F. Kennedy Address before the American Newspaper Publishers Association (April 27, 1961). [End]
The problem is that mainstream education is bad. They teach a certain range of worldviews and stories and ehm “exempt” others. I give a lot of social teaching as a free service. I want people to learn to independent study for themselves and know the research methods and tactics. I reached a place where I wanted to learn again. The public schools are screwed in so many ways and entendre. Many people can’t comprehend why Common Core and Climate-Gate are bad. This is a fair spot to use a note I’ve had for awhile:
Argumentum ad hominem
Argumentum ab auctorite (“argument from clout” as in authority)
Discursum ex cathedra (“from the chair” similar to argument from authority)
dissemble – give a false or misleading appearance;
verb – to conceal the true or real nature; disguise; camouflage; doublespeak; white wash
This is the argument from authority (cathedral). Often the cathedral is correct, especially on neutral subjects. Nonetheless many people and systems will use and abuse this as a logical fallacy; favorite rhetorical tactics of the leftist.
1 Timothy 6:20 (KJV) O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
1 Timothy 6:20 (ESV) O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,”
Irreverent (Merriam-Webster Dictionary): “having or showing a lack of respect for someone or something that is usually treated with respect : treating someone or something in a way that is not serious or respectful”
Vain (Google Translate): “having or showing an excessively high opinion of one’s appearance, abilities, or worth.”
To put 2 of the Illuminati game cards in play, a classic example of false authority or discursum ex cathedra is to exalt Al Gore on climate policy.
Another odious example is the American Medical Association (AMA). Yeah, they have some medical doctors and they are also deeply invested in “more of the same” “business as usual” with big corporate honey money.
Conservapedia noted that “The American Medical Association (AMA) is a non-profit business that garners perhaps 80% of its annual revenue from business activities, including the sale of coding Medicare books and the receipt of advertisements from pharmaceutical companies. It purports to speak on behalf of physicians when in fact only a small fraction of physicians are dues-paying members. Its politics are increasingly liberal, and President George W. Bush ended a tradition of speeches to the group by United States Presidents. The AMA was once a critic of partial-birth abortion, but now sides with pro-abortion forces. It is a strong supporter of the liberal “hot button” of gun control.” [End]
A far more reputable group is the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS).
Conservapedia wrote “The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) is the oldest active conservative and libertarian group in the world. Founded in 1943, AAPS is a membership-based physician organization that does not accept funding by corporations or government, thereby ensuring AAPS’s independence and nonpartisanship. It may be the largest physician organization funded virtually entirely by membership dues. Rival organizations, such as the liberal leaning American Medical Association (which endorses ObamaCare and gun control), are funded primarily by revenue from business ventures and payments by pharmaceutical companies.”
Interesting! There are always two (or more) sides. The AMA card has that surgeon/butcher lookin’ fellow hugging Death as in the skeleton. That black man character also looks similar to the black president pictured in Backlash card. Don’t you see the Barack Hussein Obama lookin’ similarity in both? Then consider the policies. The AMA card looks like ObamaCare. Now, I’ve noted this many times my disdain (sharp criticism) for BO is not because he is black or possibly Muslim, it is because he is terrible. The record is really bad. It almost couldn’t get worse, but it does. BO’s secular religion is basically globalism, and there’s that top theme of world government. Combining that with ex cathedra, these professional idiots will market it and assert that their package for world government isn’t horrible.
Let’s conclude with one of the top verses that gives the prophecy of world government.
Daniel 7:23 (KJV) Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
Revelation 13:7-8 (KJV)
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
The operative phrase in Revelation 13:7 is power given over all nations.
One of the components of world government is one world economy. A few verses later we find the prophecy for world economy and the infamous Mark of the Beast. We’ll consider some of the high-tech aspects of the Mark. This is an important and detailed prophecy, so I quote for a longer context of 4 short lines.
Revelation 15:-18 (one world economy and mark of the beast)
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
The image can speak, and taking the mark will be mandatory or death (v15), like a holographic projector with audio. All people small and great will be forced to take it in the right hand or forehead (v16), like a nano-vaccine and/or radio-frequency tracker micro-chip. No person may buy or sell without it (v17), so the mark also has a debit card component. V17 establishes the one world economy. V18 tells us that the number is 666, the number of the beast.
The modern pre-fulfillment and “progress” toward this mark is really creepy stuff. Here is a link/story that I’ve had for awhile, read it for yourself and behold. Non-fiction can be very shocking.
The Bible reminds us of duality. The good news is that world government is only doomed to be terrible because of humankind. Fear the gunman not the gun, as they say. When Jesus Christ comes to establish His Kingdom, then we’ll have a unique example of omnibenevolent (all good) world government.
Daniel 2:44 (KJV) And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Praise God. Selah.
