2-27-2015           Propaganda of Evolution

The doctrine of Evolution has not one single, solitary scientific fact that upholds it. It has not one single, solitary sample of the “crossovers” necessary to support it. It has not one single, solitary Scripture that teaches it. It has not one single, solitary system of dating that conclusively establishes it. It is nothing but “propaganda” supported and taught as a government-funded, godless explanation of the Creation. David said it right: “Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, The power and the glory, The victory and the majesty; For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, And You are exalted as head over all” (1 Chronicles 29:11 NKJV); and, “God has spoken once, Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God” (Psalm 62:11 NKJV).

2-26-2015           Propaganda?

Propaganda is “deceptive or distorted information that is systematically spread,” that’s another way of saying, a lie repeated over and over and over. “Advertising” or “marketing” can become propaganda if its intention is to deceive. “A false witness shall perish, But the man who hears him will speak endlessly” (Proverbs 21:28 NKJV). People who are given propaganda which has little, or no, fact behind it, will “endlessly” repeat it, thinking they have been given truth. Jesus warned, “They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.” (Matthew 15:14 NKJV). Whatever people repeat that contradicts God’s Truth is a “lie,” “Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4 NKJV). Jesus said the Devil is the “father” of lies (John 8:44 NKJV).

(#88) The Proverbs of Solomon 14:28-A Kingdom Divided Against Itself (Matthew 12:25)

Since God Created humans, only God can provide specific understanding of human behavior. God gave Solomon Divine Wisdom (1 Kings Chapters 3 and 10) to explain what and why behavior is as it is, and Proverbs 10:1-24:34 are randomly written, as if they were Solomon’s judgments about individual cases brought to him, or simply God-given explanations about life. New Testament passages may help see the continuation of Wisdom offered through Jesus Christ.

Proverbs 14:28: “In a multitude of people is a king’s honor, But in the lack of people is the downfall of a prince.”

While the Israelites were united under Solomon’s God-blessed rule in their Promised Land, the queen of Sheba said: “Blessed be the LORD your God, who delighted in you, setting you on His throne to be king for the LORD your God! Because your God has loved Israel, to establish them forever, therefore He made you king over them, to do justice and righteousness” (2 Chronicles 9:8). After Solomon died, their kingdom divided when Rehoboam “did not listen to the people” (1 Kings 12:15), then “all Israel saw that the king did not listen to them” (1 Kings 12:16), and they killed his tax collector (1 Kings 12:17-18). When people see their leaders do not listen to them, they try a different government leader, as Israel did with Jeroboam (1 Kings 12:25-33), often with worse consequences! Government leaders should follow the Word of God (Deuteronomy 17:18-20), because “If a ruler pays attention to lies, All his servants become wicked” (Proverbs 29:12). All rulers who believe in their own sovereignty and power have succumbed to their self-deceit, because, as Paul said, “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God” (Romans 13:1). Without acknowledging God’s authority the government is corrupt. “Like a roaring lion and a charging bear Is a wicked ruler over poor people. A ruler who lacks understanding is a great oppressor, But he who hates covetousness will prolong his days” (Proverbs 28:15-16). Certainly, one should not accept nor be taken in by the rich delicacies offered by the king (Proverbs 23:1-3).

A few ways leaders keep their people in line include: (1) murdering their opponents, (2) constant propaganda of lies, (3) forced labor or (4) limiting the population. Examples of each include: (1) Tyrannies and dictatorships always fear the masses, and often seek to annihilate their opposition within their own land: Egyptian Pharaoh and Israelites (Exodus 1:7-12); Mohammedans/Moslems against Jews, Catholics, and Bible-believers; Roman Catholic Inquisition for hundreds of years; Joseph Stalin in Russia; Benito Mussolini in Italy; Adolph Hitler in Europe; Mao Tse-tung in China; Khmer Rouge in Cambodia; their names are legion, and their victims number in the hundreds of millions. (2) This was done by (1); and today includes the constant mantras of “Global Warming,”  “Evolution,” “World Economy,” “Carbon Footprints,” “Bigger Government Necessity,” “Broken Medical System,” “Radical Right-wingers,” “Crazy Bible-believers,” ad nauseum. (3) Egyptian Pharaoh (Exodus 1:13-15); those mentioned in (1); economic slaves (Proverbs 22:7). (4) Egyptian Pharaoh (Exodus 1:16-22-the God-fearing midwives refused to murder innocent born babies!); the genocide of abortion (including partial abortion); government-backed “euthanasia;” government-controlled medical care; et al.

Countries ruled by a minority, who do not listen to their majority population, will suffer “downfall.”
