If the incredible rate of loss of freedom in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA isn’t inspiring profound concern and intense prayer for the fate of your families and your children’s futures…then please, ditch the football/circus distraction, dive into Truth, and start acting like an adult this weekend.
There’s still time (barely) to do something about the Orwellian nightmare unfolding all around us.
On that front, yesterday FBI Director James Comey lashed out at Apple and Google for daring to allow customers access to encryption that might keep their private information private, or, as folks like Director Comey describe it, “above the law”.
You know, “the law” that means everything about us is to be recorded and made easily available to them (the ruling elite), while everything significant about them (and their activity) is shrouded in secrecy and concealed from us.
Put another way: Privacy is for masters; not for slaves. (See also: Privacy is for masters. Transparency is for slaves. Welcome to “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.)
Of course, our capacity to preserve privacy must constantly be diminished because there are and will always be bad people who do or plan to do bad things in private.
You know, like FBI Directors.
And other folks atop our ginormous and growing Security State.
They need privacy.
And we do not.
Their friends and their businesses are “too big to fail” and too big to jail.
We and our businesses are not.
They craft “money” out of thin air with the flip of a printing press switch or the stroke of a keyboard.
We spend our lives chasing after this “money”, making us slaves to their direction and desires.
This Orwellian nightmare continues to unfold through Republican and Democrat administrations alike, because they are two wholly owned subsidiaries of the same Corporate State Empire. They are two heads of the same progressive dragon that is leading us to hell.
Wake up, Christian.
Nothing short of a miracle can save us now…but that is exactly what we have in the supernatural power of the Gospel-fueled Great Commission. May God grace us with the will, desire, and strength to stand upon His Truth at this most critical time…by His grace and for His glory.
