“Live not by lies:” the last essay of A. Solzhenitsyn and a lesson totally ignored by all segments of American society (part 1)

Mark 1:1

Live not by lies

The last essay to the people of the USSR by Alexander Solzhenitsyn

At one time we dared not even whisper. Now we write and read samizdat and sometimes when we gather in the smoking room of the Science Institute we complain frankly to one another. What kind of tricks are they playing on us, and where are they dragging us? There is gratuitous boasting of cosmic achievements while poverty and destruction exist at home. Propping up remote uncivilised regimes. Fanning up civil war. And we recklessly fostered Mao Tse-tung (at our expense) — and we shall be the ones sent to war against him and we will have to go. Is there any way out? They put anybody they want on trial and put sane people in asylums – always they; we are powerless.

Things have almost reached rock-bottom. A universal spiritual death has already touched…

Trump Holy Week Timing Conundrum?

Too ironic to miss, but I did. Whatever his virtues, and he has some, I have a difficult time seeing Donald Trump as a stand-in for Jesus. I suppose the same could be said for me. So, that isn’t a criticism. I have a difficult time seeing Jesus in all but a very few.

Nevertheless, Bragg is trying to make Trump his sacrificial lamb, and if the Bragg gets his gag order, that will make it all the more ironic.

Trump won’t be quiet. He is a presidential candidate. So, they will try to put him jail. On Good Friday? Why not?

Is the timing wise, foolish, or even ironic that Trump is returning to NY to be charged during Holy Week?

The news this morning is headline about the NY indictment of former President Trump.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate ancient King Solomon observations of human’s folly 3000 years ago have proven in history to keep repeating.

King Solomon

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

And I turned myself to behold wisdom, and madness, and folly: for whatcanthe mandothat cometh after the king?eventhat which hath been already done. (Ecclesiastes 2:12)

What’s My Point?

In no way am I comparing Trump to be as holy as Jesus Christ.

My point is the timing of Holy Week, to “Nail Trump” should instead be a time for reflection and discernment of human folly which…

The Stalin Purge of Trump as He Enters the Crucible

Contemplate this fact. Some people love to make fun of the witch trials and the Inquisition, but Christians gave that nonsense up as wrong. Liberal Democrat Marxists are still demanding witch trials. Liberal Democrat Marxists won’t give up the witch trials.

Who else demands putting their political opponents on trial? Who else hates their opponents more than they love their freedom and their own souls. Who else corrupts justice with such glee?

John Proctor – The Crucible

During the Salem Witchcraft Trials John Proctor could save his life if he just gave names and signed the paper presented. One of the most moving scenes in any movie, it spoke to me of our present judicial system. How many of Trump’s associates who are called to testify in various Grand Jurys and trials forthcoming will refuse to save themselves so they don’t get a knock on the door by an IRS agent and/or spend tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees defending against false charges?

The very moment that Matt Taibbi was testifying in front of Congress and warning about the deep state, the IRS was knocking at his door. No, it was not to intimidate Matt, it was to send a message to every single American that there are soon to be 87,000 more of them at the ready to…

Here Pastor Randy is writing as a concerned citizen, not a pastor. What about? The usual knee jerk reaction from gun control activists. The subject? The school shooting in Nashville.

What do I have to add? The Liberal Democrat Marxists running our country WANT these mass shootings. Does that seem like an overstatement? Even hateful? Well, it isn’t. Marxists policies are designed to pit us against each other. When a transgender lunatic — someone with severe, IMPROPERLY TREATED mental issues of some sort — walks into a Christian school and starts shooting, that is a success for these people. They have accomplished two things:
1. They have succeeded in pitting us against each other.
2. They have distracted us from their own maladministration of our country.

LOOK at what the Biden administration and Liberal Democrats have done to us.
1. They are ruining our economy. For the sake of supposedly fixing climate change (China is building coal-fired power plants like crazy.), they are polluting the environment with toxic materials used in windmills, solar panels, and rechargeable batteries, and they don’t even have plans to recycle these things. They are also making us dependent upon China for these things.
2. Beginning with their treacherous withdrawal from Afghanistan, they have mangled our foreign policy.
3. Precipitated inflation with hugely wasteful spending and by stifling energy production.
4. And so forth. The Biden Administration and Liberal Democrat Marxists have been quite busy but trying to find anything they have done right is a hopeless task. That is not an accident.

Kingdom Pastor

This morning I am not writing as a pastor, but as a citizen. Sure, I’m still a pastor–but for now I am just another citizen of the world, who just so happens to also be a follower of Jesus and a pastor. But these words are churning in my mind and heart AS a citizen. And today’s musings are longer than usual. And you may be wondering about today’s title.

When pharmaceutical companies develop new medications they run tests to see if it works. Volunteers become part of the research; some receive the developed medication and others receive a placebo such as normal saline solution. And we all know that saline solution will not produce the desired outcomes from this research. Now, on to this ordinary citizen’s thoughts.

Once again the news is flooded with the tragedy of another mass shooting; this time at Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee. Three…
