Reading List: Produce Culture, Student Loans, Peoria Violence increasing with the temperature, Ministry of Truth

# Make Disciples of all Nations
“‘Go therefore and make disciples of all nations’” Matthew 28:18-20 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.28.18-20.ESV

Eschatology has implications https://notes.itsgoodtobeaman.com/eschatology-has-implications/

“… most Christians are content to consume a slightly cleaner version of the culture being produced by the liberals. This is why we are losing the “culture war.” We consume, but we don’t produce… Theology has consequences for practice. But practice also has consequences for theology. When a nation of professed Christians are largely engaged in consuming and defending paganism against those who would see Christ’s kingdom replace it in the public square…it is reasonable to make some inferences about what they truly belief, and where their loyalties really lie… Even if you think we’re supposed to lose the culture war, do you think you are supposed to lose the culture war in your own home, with your own children? Or how about in your church? Is your pastor supposed to lose the culture war in his own church? What about Christian business owners? Should they lose the culture war in the businesses they run? Work out the implications for yourself. You can see both the problems and benefits of your particular theology when you scale it down to a personal, household, and vocational level.”

“I’m not suggesting removing any and all secular songs from your playlist (had to get that out there first), but you know better than anyone, dear Christian, how the music you listen to affects and influences the way you think—for better or worse (1 Corinthians 6:12).” https://twitter.com/d_b_harrison/status/1518744654337830912?s=21&t=AuyyHC3laW7uBJS7821RsA

““All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything.” 1 Corinthians 6:12 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/1co.6.12.ESV

# Work and Keep
“The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.” Genesis 2:15 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/gen.2.15.ESV

Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need. Ephesians 4:28

For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is … covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Ephesians 5:5

Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from any brother who is walking in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not idle when we were with you, nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you… For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. 2 Thessalonians 3:6-11

Student Loans: Be honest, what are you really asking for? Aren’t you really asking, out of jealousy, for the government to steal what you covet to give to you in the form of free education? Do not be fooled by the false hope and idolatry of socialism! https://ministry.family.blog/america/socialism-marxism-communism/

8. You must not steal. (Exodus 20:15)
Do not take what is not yours. According to Martin Luther, “We must fear and love God, so that we will neither take our neighbor’s money or property, nor acquire it by fraud or by selling him poorly made products, but will help him improve and protect his property and career.”

10. You must not covet or desire your neighbor’s belongings. (Exodus 20:17)
Be happy with what God has provided for you and never want what belongs to others out of envy. “Have I looked with envy, jealousy or hatred toward the possessions, talents or achievements of others? Have I desired the downfall or loss of others out of evil intent that I might benefit? Have I grieved that God has bestowed greater blessings on others than on me?”

# Trained Men
“he led forth his trained men, born in his house, 318 of them” Genesis 14:14 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/gen.14.14.ESV

Florida Sheriff: “We Prefer” Homeowners Shoot Burglars To “Save Taxpayer Money” https://www.zerohedge.com/political/florida-sheriff-we-prefer-homeowners-shoot-burglars-save-taxpayer-money

Warning! In the land of the subjects of the State of Illinois this does not apply.

“Homeowners under attack by a burglar don’t need to retreat or try to escape but rather stand their ground, and, if necessary, use deadly force. This is what a Florida sheriff told residents… “If somebody’s breaking into your house, you’re more than welcome to shoot them in Santa Rosa County, and we prefer that you do actually,” Johnson said.”

# Tyranny, crime, and other evils
“The kings of the earth set themselves… against the Lord and against his Anointed… He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision.” Psalm 2:1-4 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.2.1-4.ESV

“Pritzker believes allowing children under 12 years old to receive an abortion without notifying parents is protecting rights. The only thing he’s protecting is sexual predators and human traffickers. As Governor, I’ll restore parental notification and protect our children.” Darren Bailey for Illinois https://baileyforillinois.com/ | https://twitter.com/darrenbaileyil?s=21&t=AuyyHC3laW7uBJS7821RsA

Lauren Boebert leads effort to defund Biden Administration’s ‘disinformation’ board https://www.foxnews.com/politics/lauren-boebert-defund-disinformation-board

Big Brother’s Ministry of Truth!

“Boebert’s legislation would defund the “Disinformation Governance Board” and ensure the federal government doesn’t have role in defining what truth is for the American people. “This kind of stuff is terrifying. We in Congress have the power of the purse. It is our duty to shut down this department immediately,” Boebert told Fox News Digital Friday in an interview.”

“When Abram heard that his relative had been taken captive, he assembled his 318 trained men, born in his household, and went in pursuit as far as Dan.” Genesis‬ ‭14:14‬ ‭CSB‬‬ 

“The right to life is a good example of what legal historians refer to as an objective right: it is objective in the sense that it exists outside ourselves and is unalienable… The right to life imposes obligations: you must do everything in your power to preserve it.”
