Don’t Be Caught Off Guard

Biblical Law is the standard for human life after the Fall, and it stands until Christ Returns.

It’s not that Biblical Law is inherently conservative or liberal. Rather, in our current social and political climate, Biblical Law appears to many folks as conservative. The problem is that most people filter out things that they don’t want to consider. Right now, the particular set of mental handles that folks use to decide if something is good or bad leads to a general conclusion that Biblical Law favors the right-wing.

There’s not much we can do about that. Most annoying of all is how folks try to rope us into their particular corral, in their desperate search for numbers of bodies to support their agenda. And then they get offended when they realize we aren’t actually on their team. Folks like that come and go as regular readers on this blog.

At the same time, there are people who pass through our community for other reasons, and it’s hard to know what we can do for them. The one thing we want most for everyone is that they discover their own sense of divine calling, and that they are strengthened in pursuing it.

From time to time those with a more left-wing orientation pass through. At some point I’m sure they get disappointed and move on. The only people who really stay around are those who manage to transcend the left-right mythology to realize that Biblical Law is way outside of that.

Have you noticed that in the current left-right disputes that both sides are claiming to be the counterculture? Both sides act as if the other is somehow the dominant power to topple. In a certain sense, both are right. The social institutions around us are polarized. To a large degree the real-world space is still largely under the control of those who claim a rightward orientation.

The virtual world of the Internet industry is mostly leftist, and on the Net, anyone with a conservative bent is largely disenfranchised. Right now, there is a substantial collection of righties striving to create their own Internet accommodations and platforms, but the really big problem they face is that those who own the underlying infrastructure are also leftist, so at some point they will have to catch up to that huge investment.

Yes, the big networking giants — AT&T, Comcast, Cox, Microsoft, Amazon, Cloudflare and a bunch of names you’ve never heard — are either leftist now or their leftist employees will force them to go that way soon. We already knew that Facebook and Google were leftist. On top of that, almost every part of the software technology industry is lefty — Microsoft, Apple, Cisco, as well as most Open Source projects, like Linux, the BSDs, etc. The folks involved who aren’t lefty are being pushed out as the SJWs have already organized a take-over. Those that aren’t specifically leftist are distinctly globalist, and Globalism uses the lefties as cannon fodder.

These folks demand things contrary to Biblical Law, and the mere fact we don’t support them makes us their enemies. We also don’t support the righties that much, but they are more tolerant about such things in their current manifestation.

This is the context in which we have to navigate. Be aware and don’t be caught off guard. So long as we fly under the radar, we can keep going with our current set up. Once things get more volatile between the two sides, we should expect censorship of one kind or another.
