The Problem With Life is This…

“We can ignore even pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” (C.S. Lewis, The Power of Pain)

Beware of the Woke and the zealots

For those who haven’t been paying close attention, this is the mission of the woke: upending the world where love of life itself has become, not the primal and unifying source of purpose, but instead, a life replaced by a very disturbed and distorted version of empty, angry subsistence.

The Woke have allied with the earthly form of demoniacs—those terrorists who, inspired by the Hadith of Islam—the prophet Mohammed’s traditions—have one fundamental, hideous objective: the genocide of all Jews.

Islam allies with no one. The Woke, who ironically give no quarter to their critics and adversaries, just haven’t figured this out yet. 

The day will come when they will, but it will likely be too late. 

The Woke are conditioned to be who they are by a massive, efficient, and ruthless mechanism designed to rob from those who can’t help themselves, from those who weren’t prepared, and for those who fill the void in their own hearts with something else—anything else—that substitutes for what the void was always designed to contain: the love of God.

  • He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. (Ecclesiastes 3:11 ESV)

Islam means submission and Muslim means one who has submitted. However, submission is political, as well as religious: Islam demands that Kafirs (all who aren’t Muslim) submit in every aspect of public life. Every part of Kafir culture is an offense to Allah. (Center of the Study of Political Islam International)

The Woke, on the other hand, demand submission through penance for those who have not yet attained the enlightenment of their ideology. Penance is forced upon those who do not submit by cancellation. The Woke are those who have submitted to the ideology of Cultural Hegemony—the chief doctrine of cultural Marxism.

There is but one thing that unites the Muslim with the Woke: the absence of the love of life—the full and abundant life that they can never know unless, and until, they experience life from the Creator of life: Jesus Christ who is the giver of life, and the author and finisher of our faith in Him. 

This is why we are witness to such furious, even demonic hatred: the Muslim terrorists following countless generations of submission, and the Woke, conditioned by the hatred of this life at the feet of intellectual frauds and ideologues.

  • The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. (John 10:10 NKJV)

Two historically pivotal events of the modern era come to mind in explaining the reason for the situation we find ourselves in at this moment in time. The first is the genocide of the Armenian people in 1915-16.

The Armenian genocide refers to the physical annihilation of ethnic Armenian Christian people living in the Ottoman Empire from spring 1915 through autumn 1916. There were approximately 1.5 million Armenians living in the Empire. At least 664,000 and possibly as many as 1.2 million died during the genocide. Armenians call these events Medz Yeghern (the great crime) or Aghet (catastrophe). This horror has been all but forgotten. It was not well reported at the time, and it’s all but forgotten now.

When I was in the fourth grade, one of our substitute teachers whose family was one of the very few survivors of this genocide, briefly shared the story of what happened to her family with the class. Later, I learned that she was very “lucky” to even be alive. But her childhood must have been marred by the horror stories her parents told her of the starvation, the beatings, and humiliation at the hands of the Ottoman soldiers, irregular troops, and civilians—all of whom were Muslims

“The second example of genocide occurred within little more than a generation. Between 1941 and 1945, 
Nazi Germany and its collaborators systematically murdered some six million Jews across German-occupied Europe, around two-thirds of Europe’s Jewish population. Following the invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, 1.5 to 2 million Jews were shot by German forces and local collaborators.”

“Later in 1941 or early 1942, the highest levels of the German government (following Adolph Hitler pictured) decided to murder all Jews in Europe. Victims were deported by rail to extermination camps where, if they survived the journey, most were killed with poison gas.” (From Wikipedia)

This was genocide in the modern era. But the linkage between these two periods in history relies on these events not just being recorded, but in their retelling, and how they’re retold and—most importantly—how they’re remembered… or how they’re forgotten. This brings us to the genocide intended in this generation. 

In our own Woke culture, comparing someone to Hitler has become just another casual epithet tossed at the opponents of the politically empowered elite; the intelligentsia, and their callow students and sycophants.

This must be the age where people replace life with only the drive to dull their pain, pursue their selfish immediate pleasures, and avoid all of the pain that fully lived life is bound to offer them.

This latest attempt of another genocide is literally knocking at the door. Millions of people, who most would never have thought would align themselves with brutality and hellish mass murder, are in the streets waving signs and chanting, “From the River to the Sea Palestine Will be Free.” Do they really know what they want? 

I can only imagine some pink-haired, tattooed, transgendered university student, dedicating herself to the cause of “freeing” the Palestinians and rushing to join them in their fight by taking the next flight out to the Holy Land.

She wouldn’t even make it to baggage claim.

One day, Jesus rebuked the Pharisees—the college professors of His day, and said, “You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” (John 8:44 ESV)

Marx, Mao, Hitler, Mohammed… all are liars because their lying father put it in their hearts through proxy to act on what they want to believe: to remove from the face of the earth those whom God originally gave the word of life. L’Chaim.

Pray for peace by all means, but be willing to acknowledge the horror such people have created, acting and speaking out against it, because horror is God’s attempt to get our attention, and it is a necessary part of living fully—depending on the One who desires you to live it abundantly.
