What’s Wrong With These People?

Home - by - January 29, 2013 - 19:15 America/New_York - 29 Comments

Logic and common sense are foreign languages to the sheeple. The sheeple are people who have become mesmerized under Obama and the Liberal/Progressive/Socialist spell. This includes all the low information voters who blindly follow anyone who gives them goodies and the well-intentioned empath who, for whatever reason, does not understand that progressives do not truly help the less fortunate.

Then we have the leaders; from low-level ranks to the true puppet masters. They know what is going on. As they rise in power from the low levels to puppet masters, their insidiousness rises with them. They no longer are unable to comprehend logic and common sense. No, they understand it all too well; for they must understand it in order to pervert it. Their reasons are varied, but all have the same goal: power. This power corrupts. Corruption is their intent. From the small taste of power at the lower levels of leadership, the progressive is ever-more greedy for the benefits of that power.

What disease causes the initial loss of logic and common sense? What malady of the mind causes the greed for more power in spite of understanding logic and common sense? What is wrong with these people?

In the Bible, Paul was telling the church in Rome that some people turned their backs on God, refusing to even acknowledge or retain the knowledge of God. So God said if that’s what you want; that’s what you will receive. Thus he allowed their evil sinful minds to go the way they wanted without God’s moral compass – ever deeper into the darkness with no light to guide them.

Romans 1:28 “Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.” NIV. The King James calls it a reprobate mind. Other versions use debased, worthless, immoral, and degraded. No matter what version you prefer, the result is not good for the person who decides they can live their lives without God and his morals.

The sheeple and the progressive leadership have given themselves over to this reprobate mind. They no longer have a moral guide. This keeps them from recognizing virtue. Laws and rules mean nothing, other people mean nothing and as they sink further into themselves and corruption, life means nothing. Reality no longer holds them; they are now captive to their own diseased minds and as they go further in, the less likely truth is able to break through to them.

Is it any wonder why our nation is undergoing increasing turmoil and evil?

    The easier question to answer is “What is right with these people”?

    They seem to have a unquenchable need to run the lives of those they feel are inferior to them.

    Great commentary Claudia. Sadly, dead on the mark.

    Too many sheeple do not understand that human nature NEVER changes – only the technology changes – and we are doomed to repeat the history of human nature when the majority do not understand it.

    I didn’t finish my comment. Just ask the Romans and other great civilizations of the past how it all worked out for them – oh wait, you can’t, because they’re all dead.

    Like cockroaches progs and libs scurry away from the light. I believe many still have the remnants of a conscience and are made very uncomfortable when God’s moral and ethical judgements are discussed.

    It is understandable that no one enjoys being reprimanded or otherwise held accountable for wrong thinking or wrong doing; presenting biblical principles to them is like stuffing whole cloves of garlic up a vampire’s snot box.

    Scripture is God’s mirror into our souls. When we look into it, we are revealed as God sees us. This would be incredibly discouraging if not for the Cross.

    Claudia, You ask and answer a profound question.

    I love old films, particularly WWII-era, because the writing reflects a time in American history when Americans were unquestionably of one mind about the threat of socialism, Marxism and communism. Their were good guys and bad guys.

    I recently watched “The Big Lift”, the story of Operation Viddles, the food airlift into Berlin. Montgomery Clift played an Army sergeant who falls in love with the, unknown to him, wife of a Nazi who lies to him about her continued Nazi sympathies. Despite her being assigned to clear away the rubble heap that Berlin was at the end of the war — the most visible, palpable, real evidence of failed Nazi leadership — she uses the sergeant to get to America in order to reunite with a fellow Nazi lover.

    When her plan is discovered and she is asked why, she responds that the people of Germany believed with their whole hearts, over time and through indoctrination, that the only thing that mattered was the outcome, the objectives of German superiority. How those objectives were achieved were of utterly no concern our consequence. The welfare of others in their quest for domination was of no concern and anyone who thought so would not have been thought a good Nazi.

    Remind us of any particular people running our country?

    Here’s my rant:

    Nobody reads the Bible because they think it’s stupid or boring. Nobody. Preachers, pastors, teachers, rabbis, priests… NOBODY.

    People read what other people say what is in the Bible – which they read from other people who have never read the Bible.

    I’m as guilty as anybody – until I actually read the Bible (cover to cover) for the first time 8 years ago. Then read it again. And again. Again…again…again…and finally quit counting after the 20+ time.

    Boring is the last thing the Bible is. It is FIRE….and gets deeper each time through…
    _______

    grayscape, my story is similar. It was 1998 that I read the Bible through in one year. Now I read through a different version from Genesis to Revelation (not in one year, tho). I’ve probably been through it 11 or 12 times. I have had to repeat versions, because I only read ones that are not paraphrased from other versions, but taken from the closest to original text as possible.

    I stopped going to a very nice church because the pastor started preaching from other pastors books instead of the Bible. – c

    Greyscape. Truthfully I can’t take all the begots and begats in the Bible. I have only read sections. a sentence here and there. But I have read the Constitition, and the Amendments, several times. Worth the read in this age of libtard media power.

    @Moe – I understand….they are hard… But really only a very tiny part. Geneologies are also one place where the “keys” are buried that unlock other parts of Scripture.

    Example: When was Jesus/Yeshua/Jehoshua/Joshua/Hosea (all the same name) born? Easy when you put it all together – probably during the fall feast of Sukkot (Sept/Oct). The mundane parts that are overlooked reveal this.

    Moe Tom A great Bible is a NIV study Bible. You must have a King James Bible. The great thing about the NIV is it has foot notes on the pages as you read along that help to explain the verses. And if you want to really get into it join a Bible study group like BSF.

    (I know this sounds crazy and not anything like what you think about Grayscape…)

    If you can read one hour a day, you can read the entire Bible in about 3 months. How many hours a day do you watch TV?

    I would recommend avoiding the Bible-in-a-year programs because they mix it all up. Imagine watching (or reading) the Lord of the Rings trilogy in little bits here and there, all mixed up, a bit from the second book…then a chunk from the first, then a bit from the third… How would you make sense of it?

    The Bible tells a story. God made it all. Humans screwed it up. Humans have no means of redemption. God promises Himself as the redeemer. God eventually comes as Redeemer. Everybody lives happily ever after (well – sort of…)

    All the Feasts layout a blueprint.

    Over and over we see microcosms of the entire story – Joseph (last 11 chapters in Genesis), Ruth, Hosea, Isaiah 40-66, Song of Songs… The history of Israel…

    It’s all there over and over…from multiple angles in multiple ways.

    Creation…sin…hopelessness…Redemption.

    MoeTom,

    Im with Geoff, look up a Bible Study Fellowship or Community Bible Study in your area. Each has men only groups and they are comprised of every denomination or no denomination.

    They generally focus on one book our section at a time with lots of cross reference. Very mentally challenging.

    Well put. When I first learned of the Jews hardships and the repetitious story of grace and disobedience,I concluded they must have all been crazy. But it’s really the story of us, the way we are now and always will be. Thank God for Jesus, huh?

    Abigail – exactly! God’s grace is bigger than we can imagine. Has to be…we are soooooo screwed otherwise. But it was always the plan.

    It’s so weird – God has this plan – he’s in charge – yet involves frail freewill humanity knowing we would screw it up – yet does it anyway….

    Redemption always right there – a prayer away… Psalm 51 – my favorite – the gospel according to David. The entire gospel in a tiny passage.

    The Bible truly is the living Word of God.

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    John 1:1

    For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
    Hebrews 14:12

    All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

    When you get right down to basics, the story of all human life is the story of Exodus…a desperate, enslaved humanity draws nears to God; he saves them and delivers them and blesses them; then the people get complacent and fall away from God to their own way of doing and thinking; until…it all starts over again.
