We have Yahweh, they have Blah

A Commentary on the humanist movement
How the boring humanists cannot not lose
By Christopher R. Hoops

While observing a limited amount of the coverage of the presidential race I have noticed that since the Vietnam War all the sign wielding, protest-mongering nincompoops have thought of nothing new. And if they were given a hundred years they would continue using the same clichés and adolescent chant recipes. Their opposition, the programmed right, have even less creative ways of combating them. Both sides have many things in common but most importantly they are all humanists. Because they are humanists they all have prepubescent attention spans, unrealistic, not to mention ignorant, fragmented arguments for their agendas, trite humor, weak faith, they drool over handouts and wail over oppression. They both possess little regard for truth and no shame in their disregard of it. They pander to their “leaders? then leave them in the dust to fall prey to new political messiahs resting under the shade of the deception trees. Humanists choose their sides not on principle but biased education and upbringing that are selfish and bitter. There is no conclusion to draw except that the radicals and revolutionaries are dull-witted boring losers.

The radical right is a machine that staggers to socio-economic slavery behind the revolutionary left that charges toward it. Observing American politics the “conservatives? won’t stand for any one thing or principle that may take political casualties. The “liberals? constantly take the stand that is always reverse of “conservative? and it seems they simply do it for the mere act of being the mirror side of the opposition. If conservatives wanted to outlaw forks the liberals would take a stand and try to keep forks but outlaw spoons. (The centrists would outlaw both and mandate sporks and require a twelve hour state certified training on the new equipment. I am convinced this would be smarter legislation than what they actually do.)

If Bush is vetoed in the next election (which he very well should be) he will be brushed under the carpet with the rest of non-hero radical republican conservatives. Reagan was a hero, Bush the elder was not. Reagan was reelected, Bush the elder was not. The republicans or so-called conservatives would find a new Elephant warrior and forget that Bush character. (“Bush? Who is that? Wait, they're a band! I like them!?) R.L. Dabney wrote “This [American] conservativism has no idea of ever being guilty of the folly of martyrdom…American conservativism is merely the shadow that fallows radicalism as it moves forward toward perdition." Kerry is the radical that the conservatives will fallow, grumbling and complaining, into the pits of hell.

If the revolutionary Kerry is put on the slab (which he very well should be) the conservatives will raise their American flags, hail their leader as a political god-man and let him run this country into the ground for another four years without questioning his motives. The liberals will put up a huge fit and most likely hold candlelight vigils surrounded by badly drawn signs on floppy cardboard and shout stupid chants that translate into “we’re sore losers!? When the hubbub is over they will seek a new candidate, a winning candidate, and send the old one to write lousy books in the shadows of the forgotten.

The political game is now like a warped version of little league baseball. The batter steps to the plate, a ball is pitched and he takes a swing. If he misses, then (for the conservatives) he gets to leave the field in shame; (for the liberals) the batter gets to take a few more swings until they find he is a loser, and when they do, he is put on the bench. If the conservative batter hits the ball then the crowd goes wild, the kid runs as hard as he can and one of his parents grabs the plate and brings it to him so he gets there faster. If the liberal batter hits the ball he runs to first base but misses, the crowd then threatens the umpire and tries to make the “out? call illegitimate. The liberal fans will begin yelling harsh profanities, slanders and mostly untrue insults at the opposing team in order to change or undo the successful play.

If the conservative team wins they will go home, think of ways to make the ball-field in more places than just their home town and the liberal team will make up all kinds of excuses as to why the game was lost to the conservatives. If the liberal team wins then they will go home victors, scheming of ways to dissolve the conservative competition in order to make the game play exactly how they want it and end exactly how they wish it to end. They both want control of the league of littles.

The teams will trade players, agree to disagree on legitimate rules while making new ones that hinder true sportsmanship. After a while all the teams will slowly mold into revolutionary go-getters that not only hate the system that gave them the game but want to use it to destroy the freedom that is found within the fences of the field. The rules making the game enjoyable are replaced with mandatory guidelines that ruin any sort of legitimate game-play and warp the original idea behind the game. The humanists will never realize they are playing the same game with the same umpire calling the shots.

The view behind the original American political system is that it is to be bound with Biblical morality and managed by honest straight-talking citizens with vested interest in the future of the same state (in the beginning it was states -- now we are one big mammoth state.) Needless to say (though I will say it anyway) we are a far cry from what the founders intended.

What makes the teams so obviously intertwined and ridiculously identical is who they seek to rescue them from danger. Left and right, conservative and liberal; socialist, communist, and big-business capitalist: all plead for salvation to the same god, the god of the state. Conservatives want a marriage amendment and liberals want marriage redefined. They want two things but both are the exactly alike. Their hope is found in the long robes, heavy hammers, horses and chariots of the federal government, state government and sometimes (especially in Santa Cruz) local. This is the life and death plea of the proactive humanist. “Pharaoh feed us!? “Caesar save us!? “Lincoln free us!?

The humanist cries to man expecting freedom and salvation from the chains life and death have to offer. Unwittingly they only invite more bondage since one enslaved to flesh and sin cannot offer anything but more slavery.

As Christians we cannot put our faith in the robes and chariots; we must cry to the only living God who is free and offers the only source of freedom. King David wrote in Psalm twenty, “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright. Save, Lord: let the king hear us when we call.? King David set an example of a biblical worldview regarding governments and their powers, putting his trust in the name of God, Jehovah. In this passage David uses the expression “save?. “Save? is used when times are looking bleak, when the logical conclusion is that all is lost and the battle is soon to end. It is a final plea to God, a cry of distress and helplessness.

Jehovah’s name was Israel’s banner, when they fought righteously they fought under His name and they could not lose. We are oppressed because of the banner we live and fight under and are soon to be persecuted because of it. It is not Jehovah’s, it is Baal’s, or Pharaoh’s or Caesar’s. As a nation we have put our faith in the government and every part of life is in bondage to it, to the god we worship.

I am not implying that we need a Christian government take-over or (Heaven forbid!) a coup d'etat, quite the opposite. Let the humanists have the government. The slimy sewer rat god of politics is nothing compared to the banner of Jehovah. We do not need the leading politician, we do not need new amendments nor the government cheese programs. What the United States needs is faithful Christians to put down the filthy weapons of this world and surrender them to the humanists. Then, by losing them we will have them. To conquer any pagan culture and replace it with a Christian society, repentance, prayer and God-centered worship is required. These are the fiercest of all weapons and pagans cannot wield them. For salvation, deliverance and rest we do not look to anything regulated by life and death, we must seek Him who is life and has conquered death. Repentance, prayer and worship are weapons without equals exclusively reserved for believers.

When Christ healed he forgave sins, when Elijah ended the drought he prayed, and when Israel went to battle the worshipers were in the front line. We must repent and be healed, we must pray expecting rain, and worship knowing the enemy’s gates cannot withstand the pending army of God. We will take this world captive if we use these weapons and Christ will use us and His enemies, the humanists, to do it. Save.

Yahweh vs. Secular humanism

Since I recently hosted my first Passover dinner, I am still living in the glow of all I learned over dinner that night. First, I learned that we are a free people. We are no ones slaves. Certainly not the government's slaves.

Second, I learned that the glass is not half empty or half full, its full to overflowing and there are three more glasses right after that.

Third, I learned that the Jews believe that in each generation, Isaiah comes back disguised as a homeless person, and he knocks on people's doors and asks them to help him. It is a test. He judges us on how we greet him--- are we decent and good to those who have less than us? Lots less than us?

The secular humanist would tell me it is economically efficient to help out the poor man as it would add to the general health of the community. He would be right. But what if the government told me that I am not allowed to feed this man under penalty of law. Where is the higher authority on the moral dilemna of following conscience or following law?

The person who has a belief in Yaweh (or God or Allah or The Great Spirit) has a distinct advantage over the aetheist or agnostic. The Yahweh believers are not confused as to what to do. They know exactly what they are supposed to do. And indecision wastes energy. See? its Physics!

The secular humanist would say "belief in God is wishful thinking, fantasy, and fiction." Yet, when you're in the trenches and faced with hugely difficult decisions, those with faith in God will do better than those without. Like a compass helps when you're lost.

No matter. It still works. If we treated each homeless person who comes to our door as though they were a richly deserving human being who's suffering we have both the power to and obligation to help. Its Jewish law.

The above writer's angst-ridden whine does make one coherent point. Belief in God is more freeing than belief in government as the ultimate authority. While most divinity based belief systems do come with a raft load of rules and expectations --- the individual is ultimately responsible only to God and can, with full conscience, say no to government when appropriate.

So, if you allow yourself the possibility of belief in an Intelligent God (as opposed to chemistry and physical forces in motion) this means that always, everywhere, that person is truly free to believe what he will and do what he deems necessary....and if God doesn't like it, he can take it up with him later.

(or her. yeah yeah)
 

Re: We have Yahweh, they have Blah

“And just a little while longer, and the wicked one will be no more;
And you will certainly give attention to his place, and he will not be.
But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth,
And they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace...
The righteous themselves will possess the earth, And they will reside forever upon it.?
Psalm 37:9-11; 29
“The God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite.? Daniel 2:44
“For here I am creating new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be called to mind, neither will they come up into the heart.? Isaiah 65:17
Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5
“Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.? Matthew 6:10
“But there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell.? 2 Peter 3:13
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth...And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.? Revelation 21:4
 

God is a black female, deal with it and quit calling god "HE"

WHITE MALE GOD OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST...man, you guys are really holding on to some racist fiction in hopes god is a white male as you need HIM to be! I personally believe Christianity serves one purpose only, as a social opiate of the masses. Nothing else. There is no REALITY to this fiction. AT ALL. This is not HISTORY, it is science fiction...this christian crap...And the bible is full of violence, war, sexism, racism, et al. I do not think a woman-hating, lilly white, patriarchal fiction that juxtaposes everyone against the "one way" of white male goddom, is what the world needs now...
 

Muslimahs are Womyn too!

"WHITE MALE GOD OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST.."

LOL...it's much better that womyn of the Middle East are forced to wear abayas and burqas...it keeps them in their place, giving Muslim men time to worship the Evil Moon god (allah) and not be tempted by Shaitanic women's ways. It is also good that Muslim men can beat women and have sex whenever they desire...
 

Re: We have Yahweh, they have Blah

Kirsten, you are throwing the baby out with the bathwater. You cannot argue that religion has not provided some kind of moral force throughout major civilizations. I will not comment on Christianity, but Jewish law provides hundreds of examples of fair business practices, service to the poor, and prohibitions against gossip. You do not need to be religious to gain valuable insight on how to live as a decent human being.

I think you are showing an arrogance to thousands of years of study, observation, and knowledge as well as insulting those who do believe. What makes you such an authority anyway?
 

My Yahway or the Highway!

The so called "bible" had over 70 books taken out, and the rest was systematically edited and rearanged to fit a certain agenda. It is NOT the word of "God" at all. Sure there are moral precepts in the "bible". Thou shalt not kill for intance. Now, this is precept for primitive minds. But you have the hard core right wing Christian and hard core right wing Zionists, in bed together and orchestrating the gradual implimentation of WWW3. There are so many horrific statements and mandates in the "bible", encouraging intense violence, backwards, distorted thinking, and outright lies: designed to create a mythology that innocent people will accept as "The absolute "truth". yeah sure, you can find wisdom anywhere, but those who believe the lies and stories that the "bible" says are "truth" and totally and absolutely decieved.

Real spirituality and "religeon" are on far ends of the spectrum. These babyonian "religeons" are created to confuse and control the masses. The deeper teachings of Yahshua were taken OUT of the "bible" and are in the Vatican library.

Do some research on where the word "god" comes from. What does it mean?

The orginal word was "Elohim". It is a PLURAL word. It means:

Those who came from the sky.

Don't be a sleepy human. Be a waking human. There has been a systamatic campaign to "pacify" the human population, and keep us asleep to who we really are, and focused on their created externalized "religeons" and fear of some mythical "god". These "people" do NOT want you to know who you really are, and what the purpose of life is. They want to keep us sick, medicated, televion numbed, vaccinated, in debt, and born again.

The "passion" of Christ was just a massive psychological operation to activate the collective "guilt" that has been forced fed to the world for hundreds of years. This is another lie. Yahshua's life is the point.

And if he were to come back to the earth today, he would turn from these right wing, extemeists that are trying to force feed the world their religeons and their wars, and he would say:

"They call me Lord, Lord, but they do not know me".

Don't buy the lies. Yahshua/Jesus certainly does not.
 

The Bible:

(Note: In the Bible, words having to do with killing significantly outnumber words having to do with love.) GE 3:1-7, 22-24 God allows Adam and Eve to be deceived by the Serpent (the craftiest of all of God's wild creatures). They eat of the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil," thereby incurring death for themselves and all of mankind for ever after. God prevents them from regaining eternal life, by placing a guard around the "Tree of Eternal Life." (Note: God could have done the same for the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil" in the first place and would thereby have prevented the Fall of man, the necessity for Salvation, the Crucifixion of Jesus, etc.)

GE 4:2-8 God's arbitrary preference of Abel's offering to that of Cain's provokes Cain to commit the first biblically recorded murder and kill his brother Abel.

GE 6:11-17, 7:11-24 God is unhappy with the wickedness of man and decides to do something about it. He kills every living thing on the face of the earth other than Noah's family and thereby makes himself the greatest mass murderer in history.

GE 19:26 God personally sees to it that Lot's wife is turned to a pillar of salt (for having looked behind her while fleeing the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah).
