So, I've waded through the Evangelical Alliance's new pastoral "guidelines" for interacting with trans people (ughh, the things I do to expose #transphobic #ciswits to the world), and let's just say it's time to tear this particular sh*t-bag a new hole.

So, straight off the bat, first page of text, the use of #language is . . . well, yeah, see for yourself:

"It is important to remember that transgender is not simply an issue to be debated;" - p5, #Transformed

*sigh*

When such language gets reinforced by insisting...

Interesstingly, Twitter's automatic #translation fails at translating this simple #poem. (In particular, Twitter does not translate 'Geredes') So I translate it for you:

crib
in the threshed straw
of the empty talk
there is no grain of truth anymore
hunger is growing daily
..
..
for the birth of a word
as nutritious as a grain of wheat.

Remark 1. The "das" in the poem was CORRECTLY cited by the tweeter (cf. docdro.id/x2xiYMH), but it is a grammatical error and should be replaced with the (by the way: homophonous) #subjunction 'dass' )
..
..
Remark. 2. The metaphor 'birth of a word' is a fitting one in view of #Christian #theology, in particular in view of the fact that #Jesus Christ is often associated with the Greek concept of 𝘭𝘰𝘨𝘰𝘴 (λόγος).

I noticed some deragatory tweets last night from “#Resisters” directed toward #Christians - both altright pseudoChristians AND Christians on the left (like us). Being a #pastor / #evangelist, Hepzi’s been treated badly by many in #TheResistance (up until recently) for being a
#Jesusfreak (as she calls herself) and a #minister. And in the #Christian community, she has over 750 “#pastors#pray that she dies. She gets messages on her FB page (Facebook.con/loveified from “Christians” and “#ministers” telling her God hates her and she should #repent for
standing against “God’s man, #DonaldTrump if she doesn’t want to die and go to # hell. Horrible, huh? Yes that’s a real quote 🤮🤢 So, she’s been shunned by many in #theresistance, as well as, many #Christians. NO genuine Christian would say something like that or support #Trump

“My name is here presented more to be understood than to be read” said once a #Roman senator.
For my #EarlyMedievalPills, let’s explore what monograms can tell us about changes in political culture & social communication between late antiquity & #Carolingian times.
1/
Monogrammatic culture has its roots in the #classical world. Producers used monograms to mark mass-produced objects such as pottery. We also see them on Hellenistic coins. However, they didn’t encode the name of the issuing authority, but functioned as control marks.
2/
Influenced by Hellenistic models, #Roman emperors adopted monograms on their coins. They were used to encode the emperor’s name thus becoming personal graphic devices that could also mark certain objects the trade of which was an imperial monopoly.

Despite the boys still “grounding” me from social media for my “protection” (thanks a lot boys 😒), they said I could get on and post this: as a #Christian #pastor, especially one of the few #ministers who has stood (very publicly) against the #Nazis, I know what it’s like to be
threatened by - and harmed by - the #Nazis. So, when I heard about the (TW) sh33tings in #Pittsburgh, my heart broke. The Lion Triumphs Ministries has been threatened by the Nazis relentlessly, raped, attacked, and have had attempts on our lives just because we stand against the
#Nazis and stand for #Jesus. As the fourth #Reich tries, once again, to rise, they are trying to silence people who stand against them - especially religious leaders. They are trying to silence all dissenters who stand against darkness-not just through payoffs but, also, through

"Many #Arabs were attracted to Erez #Israel by the prosperity brought by the #Jews
For example, 40 Jewish families settled in Rishon Le Tsiyon. By 1889 400+ Arab families had settled around them. This repeated itself in many Jewish areas"

Ppl need to understand that now a days, most churches in #Canada and #USA and not Catholic.
No offence to those who are Catholic. Most do NOT know they are not Christian.
Their scriptures have been changes. The 10 commandments have been changed. 2 taken away. 8 split into 10.

Their Sabbath is on the wrong day. Sunday is NOT the Sabbath.
The Lord workedfor 6 days to create earth and all apoit. He rested on the 7th day.
We are to work 6 days and rest on the 7th day with the #Lord on #Saturday the true #Sabbath You pray to fall gods, giving praise.

Hungary Standing Strong Against EU’s ‘Revenge,’ ‘Blackmail,’ Says Foreign Minister spectator.org/hungary-standi…
"(((European Union’s))) “revenge” against Hungary for protecting its national borders, his frustration with “hypocritical” organizations like the UN that have failed to forestall the destruction of Christian communities in the Middle East,
"and his faith in a resurgent Central Europe to push-back against the European Union’s “post-national, post-Christian” agenda."

1) #America Was Founded As A #Christian Nation:
“We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”
2) The Constitution honors the Christian Sabbath. This is found in Article 1, Section 7, & Clause 2 which in part follows: “If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law,”
3) When the Constitution was completed on September 17, 1787, it was signed by the delegates then to be ratified by the states. The delegates signed the Constitution in the “Year of our Lord.” This is a direct reference to Christianity. This is found in Article 7

Maybe women should start taking a look at what religion is... it's a work of fiction meant to keep you in chains. You'll never realize the power they had over you until you try to leave. It takes years.

#Christian -> #atheist nytimes.com/2018/09/20/us/…
They'll tell you that you're responsible for all the sin. Men.. they are just harmless good people who were corrupted by the evil woman. Your son's will grow up thinking this way and so will your daughters. They are both destroyed by a made up bondage.
Leaving religion wasn't the easy road the preachers always talked about. The easy road, i realize now, was avoiding the truth. It's a struggle to leave the bondage, but once your mind is free, you'll be thankful.

At dinner, I learned more about corruption + racism built into society by our masters. A book we discussed (Zinn) was used as part of this "Left" resource's bibliography. I had to share. [A thread]

@BlackSocialists - thoughts on this resource?

historyisaweapon.com/indextrue.html
It very simply lays out the case that we are all being controlled. It covers hidden history of the United States including their (and, due to the systems created by our masters, our) racism.

If you haven't been in school for a while (or are in a terrible school), some of the words might trip you up. Dictionary.com and Wikipedia.org are two good resources to help you.

Yesterday, I thought about how difficult it is for many of us to concatenate being Christian with enjoying life. #Thread #Christianity #Christian
Somehow we imagine one cannot be Christian and sexual, Christian and metrosexual, Christian and gourmand. When we are forced to make a choice, we either choose active Christian and boring or passive Christian and epicurean.
I am so alive. I am culturally exposed and enjoy living. But, there is a centredness to me. Because God lives within me, he modulates everything I do.

753 BCE: A little town called #ROME is founded on the banks of the Tiber in #Italy. It will invent the word Emperor & become the standard for all future western empires. Its language is still used on the seal of the American President, along w/ its symbol of the Eagle. (2/21)
387 BCE: Plato founds his Academy for philosophy in #Athens. In between bouts of mansplaining & homoeroticism they trailblaze the concept of using logic & reason to make sense of the world & develop tools for doing so we still use today. (3/21)

LOST FOUNDATIONS
by Bertrand L. Comparet

"Most church goers will say they believe the #Bible, but the question is what #Bible?
"If pinned down to specific answers, they will discount the #OldTestament about 90%. They are skeptical of its history & they give no credence to its #miracles. They know only utter confusion as to its #prophecies and they reject its laws as being repudiated by the #NewTestament.
"For their beauty of language, they will accept the #Psalms, those which are not controversial. Any verse is accepted which could not offend even the most #wicked, but they reject all the others which sternly call the #Christian to the duties he wants to evade.

LOOKING FOR LOST HEIRS

"The written intention of our heavenly Father #Yahweh is expressed in His prayer when we pray, Thy will be done on EARTH as it is in HEAVEN.
"In keeping with this, is #Yahshua's [Jesus'] statement that #Yahweh's servants have been on earth for thousands of years.

1. I remember when you angry #Trumpkins stormed into #Republican Party; called #Conservatives “cucks”, “leftists”, “Killary voters”, “libtards”. You idolized #Trump in a cultic way. You fraternized with alt right #racists. You winked at #sexism. ->

#ConservativeWithoutAParty
2. You said #Conservative principles didn’t really matter, though you really couldn’t tell us what #Conservatism means. Of course, your leader didn’t know either; his attempts to articulate it were painful. You mocked our efforts to explain. ->

#ConservativeWithoutAParty
3. #Trump wild swings of rhetoric, positions, moods didn’t bother any of you. Whatever Trump said last was best & most true, no matter the word salad in which it was presented. His blatant self-contradictions were obvious to all but to you. ->

UNFAITHFUL SHEPHERDS

"Many years ago, the then president of The National Council of Churches warned that the danger of the great religious awakening taking place in our country, might become fanatical and be carried into our political and business life!
"Perhaps this was a fair assessment, that is, if you conflate #Christian #Zionism with religious awakening. Unfortunately, these "fanatical" #Evangelicals have 0 faith in the #Christian religion to which they give empty lip service--while paying homage to those who hate #Christ.
"For lack of faith in the actual #Bible, #Evangelicals make Scofield’ Notes, (Scofield! A drunkard and a con-man allied with the Satanist, Darby) --#Evangelicals have turned Scofield’s NOTES into a DIABOLICAL FORCE in our #national life.

"There are treacherous fifth column elements, who are really working for the #defeat of the #nation, at the hands of its enemies.
"These subversive elements readily gain and hold the #public’s ear, because they soothingly tell the people what they want to hear. Go back to sleep, no danger can come, and there is nothing you can do.

"You must unlearn what you have learned" -Yoda

This Thread may be one of those moments when you might want to question what you have learned, or at the very least look at it from another perspective, when regarding #Judaism #Christianity (many don't know)
4. Faith is absolutely important (should be) in #Judaism #Christian life. Many just go through the Rote Motions, and Traditions, but that won't cut.

Bereishit (Berry-Sheet) Genesis 15:6
Notice he was made Tzadic or Righteous by Faith (Not by works)
5. Another verse on the importance of Faith.

Chavakuk (Habakkuk) 2:4

After 70 years of imperial/neoliberal indoctrination the web of lies is so obviously absurde (9/11, Skripal, WH = ISIS, etc.), that it is dissoluting. The empathetic humanity connects, closes ranks and sends their eternal psychopathic rulers and their lackeys into nowhere land.
The "evil empire" is a lifelong three year old child. I certainly loved my children at that age too, however only because they created not only a surreal mess, but also made steady progress.

A great documentary about psychopathy and society:
The elite invented "democracy" to protect them from the empathetic people. The media are their means for misleading the people sedated by "democracy". This is definitely a bad thing since the people have become educated and the elite almost totally insane.
