World Without Empire! Amen, Amen.

On September 17, 2023, I raised my hand in an evangelical church to dedicate my life to Jesus again, after being enamored with yoga philosophy and Buddhism for 14 years. Starting in the 1970s, about every 14 years, I have switched back and forth between endorsing the  perennial philosophy of Eastern thought  and Christianity. In the periods that I identified as a Christian, I alternated at times between a fundamentalist/evangelical position and a  liberal/progressive viewpoint.  

April 23, 2024: Currently reading the whole Bible all the way through again after many years, I am now reading the book of Deuteronomy.  But I am starting to wonder once again, are these writings the “Word of God” or merely how the ancient Israelites interpreted God’s will?  John Shelby Spong in his book Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism: A Bishop Rethinks the Meaning of Scripture on p.19 expresses my current sentiment: 

“Non-Israelite groups, such as the Midianites, were ordered to be destroyed by the God of the Bible (Num. 31:1,2). Israel obeyed: ‘They warred against Midian as the Lord commanded Moses and slew every male’ (Num. 31:7).  They spared the women and children and took as booty all their cattle, flocks, and goods (Num. 31:9).  So much for “You shall not steal”! Then they burned the Midianite cities (Num. 31:10). Moses was angry that they had let the women live (Num. 31:15). He then ordered all the male children to be killed.  So much for ‘You shall not murder’!  Then all the females who were not virgins were ordered to be killed, but Moses allowed the Israelite men to keep all the virgins ‘for yourself.’  So much for ‘You shall not commit adultery’!” 

On page 127, John Shelby Spong writes : "Once we lay aside a commitment to the literal truth of the literal words of a biblical text, we discover that there is a way through these words to enter the timeless dimension of eternal love, graceful acceptance, and inclusive community." 


It is interesting that the mainline Protestant churches are declining in numbers. I think the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches are declining in numbers also. The Bible scholarship that one can learn at a liberal Christian theological seminary will not be discussed by evangelical pastors at the 100 fastest growing  and  100 largest churches in the United States.  

If you go to Emmanuel Charles McCarthy . org, there are talks on the theology of Christian Nonviolence. Also click here.  Father McCarthy is a married priest with the  Melkite Greek Catholic Church.

Chuck Baldwin is an evangelical pastor who has been  speaking out against Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine as shown in the first video below:

The Asbury [Evangelical] Revivals of 1970 and 2023


Here is how I would differentiate the two worldviews: In Eastern philosophy we grow spiritually by our good deeds, thoughts, and beliefs over several lifetimes, and the goal is to unveil our true divine nature that is eternally present within each of us.  In Christianity, we cannot save ourselves.  We are saved when we realize the holiness of God, and how sinful we are in comparison to God's holiness, then putting our trust in the words of John 3:16.  The Holy Spirit is not eternally present in each individual.  The Holy Spirit comes into our hearts from the outside when we invite Jesus into our hearts.  

May 9, 2024: Today I rediscovered a book from my bookshelves that I had read in 2006, entitled The Reason-Driven Life by liberal theologian and Bible scholar Robert M. Price.  This book is a polemic against The Purpose-Driven Life, a best-selling popular book by evangelical pastor Rick Warren that I also had read years ago.  I still identify as a Christian, but I am finding more and more reasons once again to not identify as a fundamentalist or evangelical Christian. I am not an agnostic as Robert M. Price claims to be.  I still believe in God, and I believe in the love of God.      

There is one way that I have been consistent over the years.  I have been an antiwar advocate, starting with the Vietnam War, supporting a non-interventionist foreign policy since 1969, one year after I graduated from high school in 1968. I am currently attending a Presbyterian church that has a small, racially integrated congregation on the southeast side of St Petersburg, FL.    

Here are some files or articles I have created at my website from Sept 2023 through May 17, 2024: In September 2023: Are Freemasonry, the New Age Movement, and the Theosophical Society Expressions of Satanism in Disguise? On October 3, 2023:  Christians that Support Veganism, Nonviolence, and World Peace.  On October 10, 2023: Not All Christians and Jews Support Zionism. On October 12:  My Conversion to Christianity.  On November 4, 2023:  Israel-Hamas War--From a Pro Palestinian Perspective. On March 6, 2024: Israel-Hamas War--From a Pro Israel Perspective.  On March 7, 2024 my article entitled  More Churches Need to Support a Secular One-State Solution for Palestine-Israel  was published at Lew Rockwell.com.  On May 22, 2024  Christians, Muslims, and Jews for a Secular One-State Solution in Palestine-Israel was published at Lew Rockwell.com.  It was also published at GlobalResearch.ca and Countercurrents.org. My unpublished sequel to that article is entitled Why a One-State Solution Is Better Than a Two-State Solution in Palestine-Israel.    

The United States could be a model nation for the world.  To take the initiative in promoting and creating world peace and happiness for everyone in every nation, the United States needs to dismantle its empire. It needs to close down its 750 military bases around the world, bring all the troops back home, and just defend its own borders. Other nations will adopt a non-interventionist foreign policy also if the United States leads the way, and even if they don't follow suit, we should know that it would be pleasing to God. Other nations will start loving us instead of fearing and hating us if we start helping those we have previously exploited and harmed, seeking their forgiveness.        

The late John Pilger wrote in  this article:  “In my lifetime, the United States has overthrown or attempted to overthrow more than 50 governments, mostly democracies.  It has interfered in democratic elections in 30 countries. It has dropped bombs on the people of 30 countries, most of them poor and defenseless.  It has attempted to murder the leaders of 50 countries.  It has fought to suppress liberation movements in 20 countries.”     

As an advocate of yoga philosophy and mindfulness meditation for many years, I said what is needed is a new worldview, a spiritual renaissance, a paradigm shift that transcends both lifestyle materialism and scientific materialism.  But when I became an evangelical Christian again, I thought the most important thing is to have a right understanding of who Jesus is and to be saved from hell.  Now I prefer to worship God in a mainline Protestant church.        

Based on  Isaiah 45:17  and Ephesians 3:21, the last words in the Gloria Patri Christian doxology are "world without end, amen, amen." But we cannot create a peaceful and happier world without end unless we create a world without empire.  To the degree we create the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven, it pleases God.  He is then more likely to say, "Well done, ye faithful servants."  Empires of the past have all fallen, sometimes after hundreds of years.  But the Deep State technocrats or  controligarchs  are gradually taking away all of our rights, so that we will be easier to control in a world of total and permanent censorship, with no semblance of democracy--ever again.  Maybe that's when the Lord will return, if it ever becomes hopeless for humanity.  Or maybe God is waiting patiently for us to create His kingdom on earth democratically before He chooses to return.  Instead of working only for what's good for our nation, we should work and pray for true democracy in every nation.  Maximizing parent choice in education is one important way to increase freedom and democracy.  A world without empire will be a world without censorship, which unfortunately is now on the increase since the Covid crisis began in March 2020.      

Regarding what makes us ill, Dr Samantha Bailey, MD no longer believes in the "contagious germ theory" that most of us grew up believing. In the video below, Dr Sam Bailey tells why she started adopting the terrain model instead of the germ theory and why she now largely rejects allopathic or Western medicine.  The terrain model argues that it is  mostly things like the junk food we eat, mental and emotional stress, environmental toxins (or poisons), and not getting the proper amount of exercise, sleep, and sunlight that makes us ill.  Some naturopathic practitioners are also concerned about 5G electromagnetic radiation as well. If it is true that we don't catch diseases but build them by our lifestyle choices, it will bring down the whole allopathic medical-pharmaceutical establishment like a house of cards if enough people can become convinced of that.  The CDC, the WHO, the FDA and other agencies have all been corrupted by the generous donations from the pharmaceutical industry.  Everybody thinks that somebody else has scientifically proven the existence of contagious viruses, but no one actually has.  I heard Dr Samantha Bailey say that most doctors do not have the time to read the details and fine print of scientific publications, and it takes special training and skill to interpret the data.  It is argued that the methodology of virology is unscientific and deliberately fraudulent in order to make astronomical profits for the pharmaceutical and related companies. Terrain theorists argue that virologists have failed to carry out scientifically controlled experiments.  Seeing so much evil in high places, it is understandable why conservative Christians  believe we live in a fallen world under the influence of Satan.

Mike Stone . substack . com : Written Interview of Mike Stone on the Fraud of Virology--January 28, 2024  

Recently I woke up one Sunday morning and noticed that my left upper eyelid was red and very swollen, causing my left eyelids to move closer together.  The next morning the doctor gave me an antibiotic for blepharitis.  At 5:30 pm on Tuesday, I started applying the Erythromycin ointment (3.5 GM) 4 times a day for 10 days.  I just wanted the signs and symptoms of my disease to go away that were making me feel miserable.  I applied a very warm compress to my left eye several times a day.  Now a terrain model physician would not likely prescribe harmful antibiotics that only treat the symptoms.  But I caved in because I was desperate and wanted comfort.  Now I wonder, was it the antibiotic that made the signs and symptoms go away or just time itself?   

 

There was an emperor named Asoka in the third century BCE India who converted to Buddhism and then renounced his war-like ways.  He helped usher in an era of greater cultural harmony and peace that extended to animals by promoting vegetarianism and an extensive network of animal-care facilities, as reported by Dr Will Tuttle, editor of the book Buddhism & Veganism and author of  The World Peace Diet Veganism is valuable for ethical, ecological,  and health reasons.         

The ongoing Covid crisis is a covert operation that has been orchestrated by a global technocratic elite who are now closer than ever to getting total control over humanity.  (See list of books, articles, and videos here and  here ) Masses of people have been duped, but many are starting to wake up.  During the unnecessary and compulsory lockdowns, the  ten richest men doubled their fortunes while incomes of 99 percent of humanity fell. The  global elite  (also click here  and  here)  have the money and power to supplant the democratic will of the majority, and their agenda increasingly involves technocracy,  depopulation, transhumanism, algorithms of artificial intelligence, genetic modification, and the digital identification of every person on the planet. The Covid crisis has created enormous censorship of alternative viewpoints reminiscent of totalitarian states, and the crisis has caused me to become disillusioned with the Left since most liberal capitalists, democratic socialists, and communists have accepted the official Covid narrative of the mainstream corporate-owned media.  Organizations like the CDC, the WHO, the FDA, which we might think have our best interests at heart, have in fact been captured by the financial support of the pharmaceutical companies and billionaire donors. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr's best-selling book The Real Anthony Fauci  explains how this corruption and collusion has developed over many years.        

But now it is not so much an issue of left versus right.  It's an issue of humanity verses an undemocratic, transnational technocracy.  If the resistance movement can both successfully expose the corruption and share its visions and models for making a better world, it will make the process of disempowering the technocracy easier.  We must not become slaves to the  controligarchs'  centralized, control grid system that is implementing an agenda that ultimately will combine depopulation, technocracy, transhumanism, and totalitarianism to maintain its control.  If the Vaccine Digital ID Passport is implemented with the Social Credit System of China, we will only have access to our bank accounts if we comply with all Covid mandates. The final battle between good and evil is before us.  The Deep State must be under the influence of Satan himself, if the goal is to take away our individual freedoms permanently and turn us into cyborgs controlled remotely by brainchip implants.  Watch this video:  Doctor Finds Microelectronic Metals in mRNA Injections      

How do we create a more democratic world without censorship, a world without empire?  Within each nation, we could encourage equally empowering the 7 largest political parties, instead of just 2 parties.  We could encourage more decentralization and local self-reliance.  If there are food and other shortages in the future, the growing number of people who are getting off the grid as much as possible and growing their own food individually and locally are the best role models for the rest of us. On a personal and spiritual level, we can aspire to be fair, honest, open, tolerant, transparent, and vulnerable.  

Before we disempower the technocratic global oligarchs--it would be good to agree on the best way to maximize peace, freedom, justice, and happiness for every citizen on the planet.  In   this article   I offer some of my suggestions.      

Having a world government should not be considered until we have democratic sovereign nations that desire it.  Currently there aren’t any truly democratic nations, so it is premature to support any of the current proposals for a  democratic world federal government such as the Earth Constitution.  Right now it is urgent that we oppose giving an international organization, the WHO, authority over the health decisions of sovereign nations.  

As Peter Koenig has stated in this  article:  “The World Health Organization has started drafting a Global Pandemic Treaty on pandemic preparedness that would grant WHO absolute power over global biosecurity, such as the power to implement digital identities/vaccine passports, mandatory vaccinations, travel  restrictions, lockdowns, standardized medical care and more.”  It is very important that the nations of the world oppose the Global Pandemic Treathy.          

On an international level, we can promote the equal empowerment of the 7 largest political parties in every nation and allow them to have a proportionate control of  each nation's federal legislature.  Moreover, the mainstream media of each nation, instead of being corporate owned, could be publicly owned and proportionately controlled by the 7 largest national political parties. Also, we must do everything we can to take the influence of money out of politics.  All of these measures may seem difficult to achieve, but as more citizens of the world unite together and specifically demand them, they can be accomplished.   

On a state and local level--Christian fundamentalists, Muslims, Advaita Vedantists, Buddhists, Libertarians, Marxists, and others should be given money to find alternatives to the public schools for their children if they are not happy with the public schools.  Another option would be to radically decentralize public schools at the elementary level by encouraging the residents who live in an elementary school district to create their own educational philosophy and school curriculum. A third option could be that the money allocated to public schools on a per pupil basis could be given to parents without any strings attached to let them decide how to educate their own children.  Some parents might invest in private schools; others might take an unschooling approach and invest in private tutoring and home education.
