Reply: What Glenn Beck Could Learn From 'Winter's Bone' - The Reality Of the Laws Ignored

Shalom Drew Zahn:
I am going to use your article What Glenn Beck Could Learn From 'Winter's Bone' to both open a discussion in my Ebionite Nazirene forums to present a spiritual reality of the Laws -- Natural Organic Laws which control all of man's experiences and realities of this world in ways that he does not understand -- and also this reply in my Blog (see ).   You bring up an excellent point in the fact that while the un-religious left only focuses on the negative side -- and the more conservative side who attended Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor program focuses only on the positive side -- what is truly important to comprehend if one's thinking is to evolve beyond a very elementary point, is that it is the Laws which were noted by the Deists and Masons who were the framers of our Constitutional form of government (see Deism And The First Amendment - The Laws Of Nature And Nature's God), that maintains the balance between the duality of what man perceives as Good and Evil.    And more importantly is the fact that it is these same Laws that imbue each side with the perception of their opposite as being evil, and themselves as being good.   
The vast majority of mankind (including those who like to see themselves as rational intellectuals), are all missing the most important part of the equation -- i.e., that there is a preexisting cause for all events that take place in this world.   In fact, even though modern quantum physics has proven the vision and the wisdom of the mystic to be true beyond man's conception (see Science Proves), because both the left and the right refuse to even acknowledge the true facts, they remain shackled to their own self-imposed prisons of profound ignorance.   While the left refuses to acknowledge any force beyond their very rudimentary vision of the world, the right refuses to acknowledge the evidence even when it is presented in the very scriptures they champion, that all events in this world have a preexistent cause.   And while this was openly taught in the pre-Nicene Church (see Early Church On Predestination), because they can't come to terms with what the Bible actually states, they choose instead to cower in ignorance and the darkness of blind belief in the dogma of the Church which came into existence under fourth century Pagan Rome.   In fact, while the members of the Ebionite Nazirene forums readily see through the folly of the un-religious secular progressive left, the fact that Glenn Beck and his entourage continue to promote blind faith in the dogma of the Church that has proven to be manmade dogma that has no factual foundation, is merely acknowledging the perpetuation of the reality, same ole, same ole.  
While there are the few who have the ability to bridge the great divide that separates the two conflicting positions which you portray -- and there exists sufficient resources to demonstrate the validity of this balanced and wholistic position -- the conflicting opposites are aghast that each side is neither right or wrong -- and that there is another position of reality that they frightfully ignore.    What it all boils down to is the fact that while each of the two sides possess a valid vision of the conditions they perceive almost to the exclusion of the opposite, both sides for largely dogmatic reasons, are aghast when confronted with the answers to their conflict.   Each side chooses to remain dogmatically shackled to their factional position that only invokes suffering upon a very large segment of society, rather than even acknowledge the factual reality presented by the few who truly understand the Laws that have orchestrated the events on the world's stage of life.         
Enlightened Americans understand that the United States began under the strong influence of Deists and Masons (see The Foundational Laws Of the US Constitution - Deist And Mason Influence - Field of Dreams), and in time for largely political reasons it became dumbed down when converted to mainstream Christianity -- before the Constitution became undermined by Secular Progressives.   And what Glenn Beck and company have yet to come to terms with, is the fact that until the knowledge of the Laws is again restored, it will remain impossible for the dogmatic thinking of the modern pro-Constitutionalists to rebuild what was lost under the control of dogmatic religion.   Further, because the Secular Progressives both remain in denial, and themselves don't possess the knowledge of the Laws that were of paramount importance to the thinking of our nation's Constitutional framers, they will remain doomed to failure -- and the ignorance of the Laws by both sides, may soon express itself in even greater conflict and suffering for the victims of the dogmatic struggle that you present.

Reply To Sojourners - Rev. Jim Wallis & Rev. Jennifer Kottler - The WTC Mosque

Sitting in for a vacationing Jim Wallis, the Rev. Jennifer Kottler wrote an editorial entitled For They Shall Be Called Children Of God -- and it attempts to make the case as to why Christians should not oppose the Ground Zero Mosque, and why Christians should encourage Muslims to build wherever they can.   In the editorial Rev. Kottler embraces the traditional politically correct position and states: "As someone who has Muslim friends with a devout faith, I want people to understand that it is not the religion, but a perversion of that religion that fueled terrorists on 9/11."

In response to the Rev. Kottler I must pose the question: Is it politically correct to lie to the readers?  To state that Islamic violence is a perversion of Islam, then it must be demonstrated that the core Muslim teachings condemns and rejects all violence.   In another words, for this violence to be a perversion, the case must be made that the Muslims who are portrayed as extremists are carrying out their terrorism on the basis of a dogmatic and man-made doctrine which they follow either instead of the Qur'an, or in addition to the Qur'an.  If it can be demonstrated that those who are portrayed as Muslim extremists are merely carrying out what Muslims believe is the Word of God, then it must be recognized that the Muslims who the Rev. Kottler is referring to, are very much counterfeit and non-practicing with respect to the core teachings of Islam.   And if this is the case, then Rev. Kottler should begin her above statement that she has friends who are apostate Muslims who reject many of the core teachings of Islam.

If we pose the question: What does the Qur'an say?  We can instantly demonstrate that the Rev. Kottler's whole position is in the very least a deception, and more rightfully a bold faced lie.  Some examples taken directly from the Qur'an with respect to those outside the Muslim religion: "Slay them wherever you find them...Idolatry is worse than carnage...Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God's religion reigns supreme." (Surah 2:190-) "Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it." (Surah 2:216) "Seek out your enemies relentlessly." (Surah 4:103-) "...make war on the leaders of unbelief...Make war on them: God will chastise them at your hands and humble them. He will grant you victory over them..." (Surah 9:12-) "It is He who has sent forth His apostle with guidance and the true Faith [Islam] to make it triumphant over all religions, however much the idolaters [non-Muslims] may dislike it." (Surah 9:31-) "If you do not fight, He will punish you sternly, and replace you by other men." (Surah 9:37-).  

How can a person claim to be a faithful believer, if they fail to embrace and follow the core tenets of the religion which they believe represents the Commandments of God?   Those who the Rev. Kottler portrays as peaceful Muslims of faith, are those who the true practicing Muslims draw upon for both support, and to convert, which is accomplished when the peaceful Muslim is confronted with the requirements set forth directly in the Qur'an -- which Muslims believe is the Words and Commandments to man spoken directly from God to Mohamed.    In the same way that a child within the family environment is slowly matured into adulthood, the body of faith-based Muslims that the Rev. Kottler portrays as non-extremist, is very much the Islamic family environment that is slowly matured into full practicing Muslims -- and full practicing Muslims must embrace and carry out the above words spoken directly to them by God.    So, to maintain that 9/11 is "...a perversion of that religion that fueled terrorists", must be seen as a deceptive bold faced lie on the part of the Rev. Kottler.  In fact, from the perspective of the Qur'an, 9/11 must be seen as the true practice of the core principles of the Muslim religion.   What does the Qur'an state regarding those who are not Muslim?  If anyone desires a religion other than Islam, never will he be accepted of God; and in the next life, he will be in the ranks of those who have lost themselves and will burn in hell. (Qur'an 3:85).

Atheism - Intellectually Informed? Or Intellectually Bankrupt? You Decide?

Atheists like to think of themselves as basing their positions on facts and reason. But do they know the facts?  And what is the substance of their reasoning?   If it can be demonstrated that their positions not entirely factual, and their reason is based upon error and misinformation, then they must be understood as being so misguided, that they must be deemed intellectually flat-lined and ignorant. On the web site I use what I portray as The True Measure Of Intellect -- which I define as "...the ability of a person to re-evaluate what they believe to be true when additional and clarifying knowledge or facts is received, and then apply this knowledge in their life so as to intimately embrace the higher truth that has been revealed in the endeavor to receive still higher Truth".   Considering the fact that we are all born ignorant in this life, and becoming informed and knowledgeable is a process that requires a great deal of time and effort, it can be said that our minds are nourished by an incoming stream of facts and impressions.  And at any time that the flow of facts become cut off prior to our reaching an informed and ultimately an enlightened state, then we truly become intellectually flat-lined.

Nothing robs a person of what sets them apart from the beasts more than the suppression of reason -- and since reason is to a very large degree reliant upon the acquisition of facts that nourishes the mind, censorship or the suppression of facts can be perceived to be the death of the mind.  In an article entitled Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling by Erica Goldson, she writes: "I contend that I am a human being, a thinker, an adventurer – not a worker. A worker is someone who is trapped within repetition – a slave of the system set up before him. But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave. I did what I was told to the extreme."    And then Erica Goldson concludes: "I will never be able to turn back these 18 years. I can't run away to another country with an education system meant to enlighten rather than condition. This part of my life is over, and I want to make sure that no other child will have his or her potential suppressed by powers meant to exploit and control. We are human beings. We are thinkers, dreamers, explorers, artists, writers, engineers. We are anything we want to be – but only if we have an educational system that supports us rather than holds us down. A tree can grow, but only if its roots are given a healthy foundation."Read more »
