who wishes to fight must first count the cost
Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Combat is not always physical. Often times it is psy-ops. Psychology can be in important tool. I felt very uncomfortable in church with the idea of spiritual combat. I agree we need to fight for a better future but the way it is being presented within some segments of the Christian community is very dangerous.
I don’t doubt there is evil in the world. I don’t agree that I am the enemy.
Ignorance is. I am still very upset after the rally on January 5th. I am still in shock after the 6th. I was part of the problem. I thought standing up for freedom of speech was the right thing to do. It wasn’t. It was sick.
I don’t need to be around violent idiots to be a good Christian. It’s kinda embarrassing even.
“so Christian, I thought you were off drugs? ” Or I get a look like I was admitting to eating kitty litter.
Thus we may know that there are five essentials for victory:
1 He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.
2 He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces.
3 He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks.
4 He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared.
5 He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.
Sun Tzu, The Art of War
I was told not to read the art of war. “Too late I read it in high school, it’s helped shape my life”
“it’s evil, it’s not of the Bible.”
“It’s taught at West Point and Wall Street. So Trump can read it but I do and I am going to hell?
Can you see how stupid this conversation is. How ignorant it is.
It is also based in racism. If it isn’t Western it must be wrong. So it’s ok to be racist in Christianity but not intelligent or well rounded?
If a church tries to control your media they are trying to control your mind. Pressure to give up logic is toxic. If you question things you most likely will find something else to do on Sundays. They lose their racket. Community is great but Christianity will always be cultlike in nature. Any group of humans will behave in pack mentality.
Nobody is trying to get rid of Christianity. I am tired of having to dumb myself down to talk to people. NO! That’s not how progress works.
So have your pretend war on psychology and education.
You are walking into a battle you won’t win because I do have Jesus on my side. There must be a God if pot and gay marriage are legal.
