    “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”

    Not the mundane occurrences, although these are not to be dismissed. But do you ever think back upon those precious few times, those strikingly extraordinary glimpses, yes, those ‘coincidences’ that clicked in your mind and made you stop, a little stunned for just a split second, because you knew, still know don’t you, that God was right there with you, ordering your outcomes. Why didn’t you say thank you, maybe you did? Why didn’t you say Hi? It’s OK you know, to say Hi to God. Why didn’t you fall to your knees right then and there and make your covenant with Him? Have you? Don’t let you heart grow darkened.

    As an honest explorer of the Holy Scripture you must know to start with the truth regardless of how it makes you feel. The truth does not care about your feelings. Feelings are a critical input for physical evasion still inside us from our ancestral memory prior to this modernity. We translate these feelings, now with very little real threat, into a need for mental evasion. Mental evasion is not always desired and in fact, if you believe on the LORD the need for mental evasion doesn’t exist and, evading the truth is harmful. We have dominion. There is no need to evade a truth. You might as well try to hide from God.

    I sit in Church and listen for when the people start to fidget and shift in their seats, or when I start to squirm which is harder to detect I must admit, because at this moment I know that I’ve heard an uncomfortable and fundamental truth. It seems that everybody is anesthetized and doesn’t want the slightest discomfort, pain, or let alone the realization that something is desperately wrong. Western Civilization is teetering over a chasm and if we could just evade having to fix it then all will somehow be well?
    “O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:”
    The laws of nature are built into everything of God’s creation. Indeed science used to be nothing more than the exploration of the truths found in the created order, a search for God. As was economics merely the observation of markets and mechanisms by which men traded. These have now been turned into a way to make forced outcomes. This is attempted centralized control; it’s totalitarian in nature, an evil, a sin.
    Every living thing has a defense mechanism of some sort. Even trees attempt to fill in wounds with sap and do ‘self’ repair. It is right and good and true to defend yourself, your family, and those less able. It doesn’t matter if somebody is a believer on the LORD or not, if they jump they will fall. You should treat your neighbors well, take care of yourself first, and then family, then tribe, then nation, then if you are able, take care of others; simple, basic and disappearing common knowledge. It is a lack of understanding as to what the Natural Law is which leads us to end up with too many rules and too many rule makers and enforcers.
    “Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee. Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.”

    Plain, simple, natural truth. The Natural Law comes from God. Right and wrong do exist and can’t be regulated away. When rule makers no longer follow the natural law they assume for themselves the authority of God and when the people no longer understand the natural law we let them. I’m not against God’s revealed Law, how could I be, which deals with the verse above also from a criminal perspective. God is not an anarchist. If somebody doesn’t get it, the natural law and right and wrong, God makes a way for that lesson to be empirically imparted to an evil doer. But, look at our government, it has systematically expelled God and His natural order from everything under the proposition that religion is bad and therefor can’t be allowed. But weirdly, nobody is more religious of the type that makes them blind to reality than those that believe they can regulate the fallen nature of man to prevent wrong. This makes them delusional; thinking that we are then one step closer to Utopia, the Garden to which we will never return. They’re zealots, dangerous ones at that. Ask any communist; the only way to fix it, they contend, is to kill half the population in a satanic sacrifice to their god of what, I do not know nor understand.

    There is nothing that government doesn’t claim authority over, nothing. It considers itself some sort of owner and operator of all it surveys. So tell me, how this is any less dangerous than a man who envisions and proclaims himself as some god and then proceeds to reorder all that he sees to fit his version of reality? How is it different when government does it other than it having far more power and being much harder to stop? God will not be mocked, government is not God. The American church doesn’t teach Natural Law anymore, and they don’t even teach Revealed Law anymore. They simply worship government instead. This is part of what is harming our society.

    I contend that there are 3 states to nature and if we are to begin to remaster Western Civilization we must admit, however uncomfortable it makes us, that all three are real, contact and interaction with each one has hard consequences, and that they can’t simply be ignored or outsourced to government or anybody else to ‘solve’.

    “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”

    The Supernatural are things of, for, and by God. Evil things are often mis-identified as the supernatural. This is a lie of the devil to awe inspire. Pity is what it deserves.
    What of God’s supremacy? This is paramount, either He is God or you are a usurper! Creation itself cries aloud with the signature of God’s mighty hand upon it. The deity of Christ who walked as God among men, the miracles of Christ, God’s eternal plan for salvation and each person’s final destination and our world’s final disposition last time by flood, next time by fire are just a few. The pure and plainly evident simple truths of God’s created order. And even His Holy Bible is magnified above His name. But even so many have removed some uncomfortable truths such as the blood covenant by which we are bound. That all believers are God’s chosen people and non that isn’t. That God’s law and God’s economy are the highest and no believer should submit to the godless where he usurps God’s supremacy. I could go on. Undoubtedly you’ve thought of several others.

    “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:”

    The Natural are that which was made in heaven and earth, by God. Self-evident although perhaps not fully understood.
    What of the state of nature that God has built for us? What of self defense, what of sacrifice to raise a family, what of securing your nation preferentially against all others, what of raising your children to worship Him and not be a drone of the state? What of this natural order of men in society such as markets in trade not to be interfered with, private contract not abridged by government, the right to forage for food for crying out loud, and on and on? If the church doesn’t teach God’s Natural Law how can we recognize what is unnatural? How can we remain free? These are critical concepts out of the reformation that culminated in the birth of free nation that held ‘These Truths to be Self Evident.”

    “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”

    The unnatural – evil or that which is wrong or shameful including devils.
    Without understanding the natural and acknowledging its source we devolve into barbarians ourselves. Without knowing the Supernatural and the Natural by way of contrast how can we approach an understanding of the unnatural? There is nothing more unnatural than sodomy. Divorce to the detriment of our children and our tribe is unnatural, accepting unjust tyrannical law issued from on high is unnatural. Watching TV even knowing that it’s brainwashing us is unnatural, it’s destructive. The divorce rate and abortion rate are the same inside of the church as out. This tells you all you need to know. And what of abortion? How can a people who understand the state of nature in which we live where all of God’s creatures fight to the death to protect their children and secure their future, instead kill 70 million babies and throw their tiny defenseless bodies into the trash? It’s not natural, it’s evil. There are many specific things that God hates and calls abomination. Anybody soft pedaling some easy believe-ism is an agent of evil.

    This is what is destroying America and the West. Don’t believe it, too bad. God’s people being subsumed by the evil that surrounds them instead of being called out, a separate and holy people. They have allowed evil to grow and thrive. If God’s people would proclaim Him, evil would shrink.

    There are no men. The vicarious attainment and recognition of manhood in the tribe and status among fellows as a warrior, a builder, a leader, and a conqueror but transferred through the synthetic interface of a game console only to wake up at 35 years old and realize it was all fake, everything you just accomplished was supposed to have been attempted for real. You were supposed to have made a family that God would find worth loving and people would admire if at least respect and you were supposed to have built things worth defending, things of beauty, awe inspiring, the kind of things that would make a people say; Yes, I’ll fight to the death to protect and preserve that. The damage that this is doing to Western Civilization is immeasurable. By accepting evil and living a false reality we’re a conquered people and because of it nobody knows how or when or why to fight back.

    We’ve lost our civilization, our heritage. There are lots of folks on the internet whining about what the white man accomplished technologically, but could we hold it? Did we want it bad enough to keep it? If you know somebody under 30 get them out into the real world or they, and the West are going to die by way of failing to know God’s supernatural, His natural created order, and how to reject the unnatural.

    “ But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

    Next time God makes himself known to you go ahead and acknowledge Him and then, be the first and reciprocate, make yourself known to Him. It’ll be the best thing you ever did.
