This post is a response to a comment I found on World Economic Forum by AUDREMYERS. Here is how that post, World Economic Forum, starts.
‘Nuff said? Evidently – no. Or maybe yes. To those of us of a similar background and thought, the WEF is the deepest pit of hell from which all demons and devils come. I don’t think we’re wrong in that idea.
We used to say that we’re five years behind Great Britain, meaning what was happening there would be here in five years. I suggest that we’re five minutes behind Canada. I think this video is very informative and I’m hoping you’ll view it to the end – it’s only about 14 minutes long. It produces, at the end of the video, the information contained on the WEF website. It explains what’s wrong (so very wrong!) with digital id while trying to extol its virtues – it has none, by the way.continued => World Economic Forum
We are approaching — perhaps we have reached — the time when a certain decree will be easily enforceable.
What is the mark of the beast? I don’t know. I just know that a law that cannot be enforced is meaningless, and the beast will not issue meaningless decrees. Cruel? Yes, but not meaningless. So, if the government of the beast doesn’t want a large number of dissenters to participate in commerce that government must have an easily enforceable way of stopping them. A digital ID in combination with a digital currency makes the possibility of Revelation 13:16-17 very real.
Would it be possible for a black market to get around the combination of a digital ID and a digital currency? Yes, but dissenters would either have to come up with their own substitute for money, like gold, or be reduced to barter. In addition, they would have to skulk about the land. That is, they would have to find ways to avoid being tracked by a hostile government that would insist that everyone wear tracking devices and accept the fact that they would be on camera and overheard by listening devices at all hours of the day.
Orwellian? Yes, but the Orwell’s fiction grows more real every day and seems unstoppable. So, one commenter offered this question.
Always a Kid for Today
Then why bother voting? Why bother writing articles or comments if it’s futile? Surely in talking about this stuff, it’s going to make one feel angrier and more powerless? Wouldn’t it be better to just step away and live your life as best as you can, away from this system of governance we cannot change?
I still post here, on TCW, on Port but I’ve given up writing political articles because the people of this country are so stupid, they continue to vote in the parties that are wrecking the country and their lives. I’m sticking to writing creatively and doing the odd review because it’s better for my head. And because I have given up on politics.
You, me, Neo, Audre, TCW and others will continue to highlight the problems in our society but what does it really do in the end? Globalism continues apace, our institutions and organisations continue to diminish and the world continues to get darker.
I’m not saying this because I want people to stop fighting. People should continue to fight against the system but to me, it’s like hitting the vaults at Fort Knox with a pillow and expecting it to break open.https://nebraskaenergyobserver.wpcomstaging.com/2023/02/21/world-economic-forum/#comment-48678
So, what is the appropriate answer? What does our Lord command Christians to do? Did Jesus ever command us to save the republic? Not exactly. The most important commandments are to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength; and to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.
If we love our neighbors, we will share the Gospel with them. That will be our first priority. Why?
If we make our first priority sharing the Gospel, does that exempt us from voting? No. Good government is as essential as food, clothing, and shelter. A bad government starves and kills people and works against the spread of the Gospel. Therefore, if we love our neighbors, we will work for good government. Nevertheless, Jesus never promised worldly success. Instead, He promised us His peace.
If we love Jesus, we will spread His Gospel, and we will work for a government that benefits our neighbors by protecting the rights given to them by God.
This is off topic and I apologize for that but you do not have a contact page so I have to reach you this way … Why is it that you close comments after a discussion becomes interesting? Is that an automatic thing or do you just get tired of dealing with certain issues?
I close automatically close comments after 60 days. I do it to limit the amount of spam I get.
Is there is a particular post you want to comment upon? I will be happy to throw it up again. Give me the link. If the topic is still current, I will throw it up again and let you know I have done so.
No, I was just curious and your answer makes all the sense in the world.. I think I will set my comments to expire in 60 days also… thanks for the suggestion.

Your post reminded me of what the mayor foolishly advised Blacks to do if they don’t vote for her in the upcoming election in Chicago.
“”If you want them (her opponents) controlling your fate and your destiny, then stay home,” Lightfoot continued. “Then don’t vote.”
Your reason to vote is wiser in my opinion.
Regards and goodwill blogging.
Reblogged this on Calculus of Decay .
I appreciate this post Tom as I’ve been drifting towards despondency with what’s going on in the world. It seems more and more people have woken up to the the fact we are headed off an enormous cliff, but STILL nothing changes. Whether due to electoral corruption, media bias or just plain voter ignorance, the same type of rotten people keep on getting elected and no one is ever held accountable. Unless of course you possess options that stray from the narrative, then you risk being railroaded on trumped up charges and tossed in jail.
But, I digress….you are correct we should focus on Jesus and spreading the Gospel, love and light. We also have to keep fighting the good fight but knowing victory is already ours where it matters.
What our Lord commands isn’t an easy thing, at least it doesn’t seem to be. Nevertheless, He says His yoke is light. I think that when we seriously consider the alternatives to Jesus we begin to realize how horrible it would be to serve any other master.
Agreed Tom. We see the “fruits” of this other master all around us.
(His yoke is light for us, because He’s the One sharing the load.)
I’ve had that ‘why even write about this evil stuff ‘ feeling lately. It does kinda feel like game over. But it’s not quite over, so let’s enjoy our freedom while we can! And share the gospel!
That’s the right attitude.
It is actually a mistake to separate religion from politics. That makes it easier for the news media to depress us and cause us to despair. We can forget that Jesus Christ has already won the victory. We can forget that even the dictatorship in Communist China is nothing but a sandcastle that will be washed away with the next incoming tide.
I am going to steal that WEF graphic, though. I was just trying to explain how they are building the digital cage that is going to be our prison. That picture says it well. Just try living without the internet.
