So the stock market is careening (again), the talking heads are flipping out (again), and our dearly beloved pagan “leaders” and “experts” are being looked to for economic security and salvation (again).
Welcome to the world of Fiat $lavery, an economic construct built upon the laughably insane and wildly unbiblical notion that some should have the power to magically create “wealth” out of thin air while the rest of humanity scrambles and scurries and does whatever it’s told it needs to do to chase after the ever-devaluing dollars and euros that the mystically empowered elites use to effectively own and control everything and everyone beneath them. (See also: Fiat $lavery: We have been bought and paid for…with nothing.)
This afternoon we are being treated to scads of Drudge Report and mainstream news updates chronicling the latest downward lurch in our fictional, Matrix-like “markets”. (See also: €ndgame: The Death of Oil, Banks, Bailouts, and Bondage.)
The Dow lost around 500 points at one point today, Chinese markets are continuing to smolder and burn (which is really creeping everyone out), and the “experts” are looking to the almighty elites in central banks like the Federal Reserve to get a sense as to how much more magically-created-out-of-thin-air “money” might be needed soon to bail out and prop up those who are deemed worthy of bailing out and propping up. (See: Fear not, stock-holders! The Monopoly money printing presses are here to save you (and bury the rest of us)…again.)
And all along the way, we will be told that this is normal, or at least normal-ish enough to be okay.
Nothing to see here.
It’s all cool.
This is just how things work in “the real world” of banks and fake money, don’tcha know.
As the ride gets bumpier, harder, and more and more painful, our beloved pagan “experts” and “leaders” will explain again and again in any number of ways how all of this really does somehow, some way make real sense at the end of the day; how it’ll all work out well for us in the end.
And most of us – especially those programmed by the Corporate-owned education and pop-culture systems – will be inclined to go right on pretending and believing whatever they tell us, in part because the scale, significance, and consequence of the alternative is just way too scary to face.
In other words: We are like compliant, cowardly, kept little children…just as we’ve been conditioned and “educated” to be.

Through all of this, and however much our favorite pagan “experts” may like to imagine and encourage us to believe the contrary, the reality – the true reality – of the economic realm here in God’s creation is and always will be defined and bound by His Nature as revealed in His Word.
A false balance is an abomination to the LORD,
but a just weight is his delight.
~ Proverbs 11:1 (emphasis added)
That’s why our pathetic little mass-slavery enabling economic Jenga Tower of Babel cannot endure. (See also: Our Big Fat Greek Economic Future.)
That’s why it will fall.
Our love of money and materialism to the point that we will sacrifice the bodies of millions of our own babies on the altar of convenience and profit in the name of “liberty” and “freedom” is a foul stench in God’s creation, and it will be dealt with. (See: Selling murdered baby parts in America? Sure. Why not?)
Our allowing such behavior for decades while delusionally daring to describe it as “legal” is just as repulsive. (See: Presuppositional Law: Where we begin with law determines where we end.)
This is where our love of ease, comfort, things, and money – even fake money – has led us…
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. . .
~ 1 Timothy 6:10
The foundation of our system of economics is an abomination to God.
Always has been.
Always will be.
And abominations always end badly in His creation. We shouldn’t want it any other way.
May God give His people the grace, clarity, and opportunity to prepare accordingly.
