More Pentebabbleist Insanity

Steven Bancarz used to be enamored with the occult. He actively participated in astral projection, Christ-consciousness and more.   But now he’s out to expose the New Age and the presence of the occult in seemingly mundane events, like the Super Bowl. Sunday night, the internet was abuzz with talk of Lady Gaga’s halftime show. While many people praised the performance, Bancarz saw something malicious beneath the surface.  He posted his analysis on Facebook: 

Pentagrams lining the stage at the Superbowl halftime show. Cross-dressing men with makeup dancing on stage. Flames, black clothing, 666 hand signs over the eyes. Typical halftime show.

I have an honest question for non-Christian truthers and political conspiracy activists who are Facebook friends with me and are reading this status. Because I am confused and want to know what your worldview is.

(This may seem strange to some Christians who have not been exposed to this kind of material before).

If we can grant, for the sake of argument, that there is a class of Satanic/occultic elites who pull strings and run the show from the top down (as most I am referring to believe in some sense or another), we can obviously agree there must be something beyond the natural material world of atoms and molecules in order for Satanism, ritual sacrifice and occult practices to even be feasible and existent.

These people are nuts.  Just plain nuts.  These Montanists are a blotch on the Christian faith.

Trump Deports the Statue of Liberty

After living in the United States for over a hundred years, the French-born Statue of Liberty was detained and deported Tuesday by direct order of President Donald Trump, sources confirmed.

The deportation of the iconic statue is just the latest development from the immigration order signed by President Trump his second week in office which could potentially be used to expel millions of immigrants currently living in the United States.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel began dismantling the universal symbol of freedom and shipping it back to France on Monday afternoon.

According to Border Patrol agents, Lady Liberty was marked as a high-priority target of deportation due to her foreign origins and suspicious inscriptions indicating that it would support the immigration of more foreign nationals to the United States.

President Trump has taken to Twitter to comment on the situation:

A Lovely Lunch

Gareth Jones, our Principal at Ming Hua, is visiting here in the States for a bit and he stopped by Knoxville where we met for lunch at one of his favorite spots- Cracker Barrel and we discussed plans for J-Term for 2018 at Ming Hua.  It was great to see him again and great to make plans for some exciting courses coming up.  You’ll be unsurprised to learn that I snapped some photos.

And yes- he signed up for a Prius as his rental and they gave him that sweet Mustang instead… lucky devil.

Sex

If you treat sex like it’s the moral equivalent of kissing or going to McDonald’s, you lack ethics and morality. Evidently that truth is completely unknown to young people (and some old people) today.  Someone has failed you or you have failed to learn moral behavior.  Either way, you need to change.

Schiffman on Post Maccabean Jerusalem

Here’s an interesting essay:

The period following the Maccabean Revolt ushered in tremendous expansion in the city of Jerusalem and even on the Har Habayit (Temple Mount). Jerusalem expanded westward to include the area known as the Upper City and a combination of enlargement and refurbishing of the enclosure of the Har Habayit resulted as well. As a result, Jerusalem in this period once again became a prosperous and beautiful city. But to understand these important developments, it is necessary first to know what happened in the aftermath of the re-conquest of the city and Beit Hamikdash (Holy Temple) under Yehudah (Judah) the Maccabee in the revolt of 168-164 BCE.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Examiner… think National Enquirer without the actual journalists.
