The word is crystal. You have an ish? You go direct. In this respect, I don't have 'personal' re two blog/ers. Rather, have much to learn from both. Respect the men (and female participants/comment-ers).
One I saw for the first time a few minutes ago. The other, I look into and represents rare as, progressive and prophetic.
Should make a short comment on either one of the sites but don't want to get in their grill. And just about smart enough to know, the Holy Spirit will need to open-eyes, otherwise mainstream-scales remain regarding – 'what's-a really happenin'.
From the first one. What does this mean?
Christians in Europe must rise above narrow horizons of national interest, seek the international common good...
Say it “Christians in Europe should support Socialism”. That be honest. Understandable but what's with the shading and sitting behind?
This the groove behind my posting this: Just SAY it.
Does he mean? Not some quasi national – getting more tolerable – local socialism? Or financial, military what have you – leadership that 'rises above…' and goes international? Leadership? (Ok bound to be pacifists – scrap the tanks etc). Is this what he means? (I should read the article but one para in has m'typing this).
Why not not admit? If this-what-you-want? “Come out, come out”.
Is international common necessarily good? Correspondingly, why are national interests – necessarily – narrow?
Surely these interests have kept the world from terror. Utter and unmitigated. Of course 'used for wars', although hardly-so in more modern times, the reason why, in themselves. Isn't it governments that go to war and people trapped in going along?
Augments for no-borders? (This/where 'you' going?)
So 'we' don't want borders but we lock our doors? For Christians living where and under what have you, are free, to leave them open. But where in the Bible does it say, ask the wider community, to do the same?
And. Where does it say, do away with nations and get authorities (this, who we must trust), to dismantle more and more historically formed tribes and stuff and unite in GOVERNMENT.
No where, no way. The Church being locally governmental in a voluntarism. Yes. We feed the poor. Yes. We promote peace with all, as far as… etc, but go to Caesar and see if we can make Rome good and join the empire??
Perhaps I don't get Marx but I can understand organised sharing and caring, makes some non-libertarian sense, relatively local – but globally?
We would NOT like this, if – and my stand in God is “shall Not be” – ever, came to be. Nations at it, more or less. But global socialism is what we fight and has a new name, The N...
Some better-bits of more-socialist Europe, are having the start of their 'narrow interests' ripped out and replaced by all one and all come.
This will drive an ungracious and hostile to races based, prejudiced, nationalism. But the manipulators who RUN the so-called 'Euro-union' aren't libertarian or socialist or conservative/right-types – they're GLOBAL-ists. No more Marx than Mussolini.
Vote in/out Euro and the U.K. is covered by the enemies proxies either way. On balance, it might set a few more cats amongst if 'out' but what-ever. Tyranny is interwoven among us – but the Church is lost in a myth.
Myth: 'Seek(ing) the international' will not be co-opted by those inviting the seeking. Wolfie ones and sheepy suits. These anti-Christs, might not quite like common 'good' coming about? Might have other plans..?
My response to these websites is deep sadness. Frightening – if I didn't have faith. We like distinctive cultures, races and COUNTRIES – but we want international community? This is Not awake, not got y'armour on?
Apologies for the big-heading it – but that one paragraph.
Let's start with Building 7? “So… small fires...”
