Many politicians, especially those on the Right, pretend they are strictly adhering to the U.S. #Constitution when they often are just making the founding document mean whatever they want – but perhaps nowhere is that as dangerous as with their make-believe #SecondAmendment.

Fascism is a religion. The 20th century will be known in history as the century of fascism.
— Benito Mussolini

I’d like to draw some comparisons and contrasts between our present situation and that of fascist Italy between 1922 and 1945.
1/
I choose fascist Italy rather than Nazi Germany because it has always seemed to me a better comparison. Nazi Germany was the extreme militarist, racist and totalitarian variant of Italian fascism, which was more adaptable, pragmatic, rooted in reality and also more incompetent
2/
...ineffectual and half-hearted, all of which seem true to our condition today. Italy was the original form, while Germany was an offshoot.

COMMUNITY CHURCH | When @Chude began advocating for safe spaces for those dealing with depression, I could relate. I was reminded of neighbourhood community centres in the US. #Church #Thread
In some US cities where kids are at risk of suicide or gang initiation, the community leaders realised something. Many children do not turn to gangs or suicide because of adversity.
Rather, some do so because they feel alone. Others, because they have no options and the flicker of hope has finally gone out.

SOME RECENT THOUGHTS ON THE CHURCH | I'm beginning to understand that almost every #socialmedia post (complaint) that begins with "The #Church", actually means, "The Pastor". Part of the problem is the "inversion" of the Christian model.
Instead of physical churches being training grounds that equip saints for the work of the ministry in the world; they've become central expensive bureaucracies where Christians bring their gifts to church. Then, the churches centrally dispense on their behalf, through Pastors.
So, when we say, "Church doesn't do something", we actually mean, "The Pastor doesn't do it", since local churches in Nigeria are "undemocratic" and run by Pastors.

1. More than ever, the church must pay attention to the next generation and invest heavily in making church appealing to them. #nextgen #church #youthdevelopment
2. I have read and heard about how Isaiah 2:2-4 is a prophecy for now - "all nations will flow into it, many people shall come and say, come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,..." #nextgen #church #youthdevelopment
3. The mountain that people ran to in this verse is the one that was: #nextgen #church #youthdevelopment

RELIGION IS NOT REQUIRED FOR GOOD #GOVERNANCE | #Thread #Faith #Church
I had lunch with my Pastor yesterday. We discussed many things, including my growing scepticism about the traditional structure of physical churches.
I also mentioned that I was no longer attending church regularly, as I was taking some personal time to deconstruct the nature of Christ's relationship with humans, outside church walls.

LOOKING FOR LOST HEIRS
by Pastor Bertrand L. Comparet,A.B., J.D.

Have you ever stopped to question the intense hatred there is in the world for #white #Christians?

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.

The Creators of the World’s Misfortunes
by Joseph Goebbels
"One could not understand this #war if one did not always keep in mind the fact that International J//ewry stands behind all the unnatural forces that our united enemies use to attempt to deceive the world and keep humanity in the dark.
"It is, so to speak, the mortar that holds the enemy coalition firmly together, despite its differences of class, ideology, and interests.
