Popular history likes to blame the Germans for the fall of Rome, but reality tells a different tale. It was suicide, plain and simple – the same kind of self-inflicted destruction that the US and Europe are going through, right now.
We are killing ourselves, just like Rome did. The only difference is that our fall will kill a lot more, and the barbarians howling at our gates are mostly Chinese.
Greed and stupidity was what really killed the Romans. Greedy elites and stupid peasants. It’s a story that was old before Romulus was even a glint in his father’s eye.
As an American, that’s embarrassing. What an astonishingly pathetic end to what was once a great country and an audacious experiment in freedom. We fought and died to free ourselves from rapacious empires. We fought and died to eliminate the scourge of slavery. And now, with all that we’ve accomplished behind us, we’ve decided to turn the gun on ourselves.
All because of greedy politicians and foolish peasants.
You and me.
Oh, I know that many will claim that Biden wasn’t really elected, that the election was stolen. But, that doesn’t matter. What matters is that our society has become a hollowed-out shell of its former self, a mere shadow of former greatness. And, we were warned that this would happen by my favorite founding father:
“Our Constitution was made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
– John Adams, 2nd President of the United States of America
Yeah. Moral and religious. That’s not America anymore. That can’t even describe American churches. We can’t even get our supposedly Christian ‘leadership’ to be moral and religious.
Christian Corruption – Steve Quayle And Also The ESV
Are there ANY Christian leaders that are moral and religious?
Take Steve Quayle. That name hit my inbox this week, with more evidence that he is neither moral or religious. In addition to his dishonesty, corruption and lack of integrity, we can now add plagiarism:
Quayle’s website is chock full of garbage, and I can always tell when someone has been reading the foolishness that he posts. Half-baked tales of Nazis under the ice, space aliens, super secret bases under ground and in outer space, and so much nonsense that whatever truth he does tell is completely obscured by the lies. And, he has been doing this for so long that you would think that Christians would have stopped paying attention to him.
Being Christian is more than just claiming that Jesus is your Savior. It also means fearing God, being honest, having integrity, admitting your sins, forgiving others and loving your brothers. It means being dedicated to truth.
Steve Quayle is NOT dedicated to truth.
He’s not even honest, for crying out loud. So please, stop listening to him, and to the people who are in his ‘circle of friends’. Lies will not protect you when things start falling apart.
Here, let’s add some other Christian corruption.
Did you know that the English Standard Version also used the Samaritan Bible (aka, the Samaritan Pentateuch) as an input to their translation?
That’s right. The Samaritans. The heretics of the Old Testament. Who worshiped a different god. Those Samaritans. And, the guys who translated the ESV, used that ‘bible’.
Now do you understand why ESV translators couldn’t translate Genesis 3:16 or 4:7?
I will be doing a deeper dive into the errors of the English Standard Version of the Bible in a few months, but what I’ve seen so far is absolutely appalling. The idea that Christians would willingly do so much damage to the precious words of God is beyond my ability to comprehend.
How can we claim to follow Christ while being so full of corruption?
I’m not sure that I want to know the answer. I suffer from enough depression already. All that we really need to know is that we’ve destroyed ourselves. Utterly. Completely.
So, when I look at the price of oil and the utter insanity of America’s energy policies, it’s just confirmation of what we should already know:
America and Europe are doomed.
Like the Roman Empire, the United States and the European Union were destroyed from within. Greedy politicians and foolish peasants conspired to tear apart something that was important, something that could have endured if we weren’t so awful.
