The Lord’s Return is eminent.

Time to Change

When I began this blog 15 years ago in 2004 it was originally called “The Fellowship of Christian Acrobats” (christianacro.org).  I quickly realized that I needed to separate my writing on acrobatics from writings on Christianity.

By 2005 I had been a participant in organized religion for 20 years and realized that there were some very wrong things being taught and encouraged in those systems.  So in splitting my writings to different blogs, the Christian blog became,  “Reform the Church”.

After thinking through the systemic faults of organized religion, I began seeking more organic Christianity through house church groups instead.  But even there the pride of man and the desire to control others  was just as prevalent. Although, at least, in house churches everyone had a chance to contribute and a greater sense of community was experienced.  Which is unlike organized religion where you stare at the back of people’s heads while listening to one man give his opinion.  Of course, there is Sunday School where you could contribute, but it was still tightly controlled by the pastor’s associates.

Women are coming forward speaking up about past sexual abuse.

As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.  (Isa_3:12)

 

A snow ball has been rolling that continues to get larger. The #MeToo movement has encouraged women of all ages to speak up about past sexual abuses. From what I have read so far in the news, the #MeToo movement seems to be mostly pagan women, not believing women, although more and more Christian women are also speaking up, too.

Larry Nasser molested Olympic gymnasts

I am a gymnastics coach. Larry Nassar was a trusted Olympic physician who took advantage of underage women who, naively believed that his finger b-nging them was actually an “interior digital massage”. The pervert is a sexual predator who deserves to be locked up. Those young girls who are now adult women are part of the #MeToo movement and are a mixture of Christian women and feminists. Nor would I say that these gymnasts hate men, for several of them are married and have children.   But I am concerned that the #MeToo movement is a double edged sword that, on one side, addresses perverts who need to be indicted and locked up, but on the other hand,  false accusations might be too easily accepted  simply because so many women have been abused.

Coaching gymnastics is like walking on eggshells now.  Every physical contact with a female student is scrutinized and questioned making spotting extremely difficult. Most of the USAG leaders resigned.  Mothers are telling their daughters not to trust anyone, so the slightest accusation is taken so seriously that no male coach can simply relax and be normal around the girls.

Right now, in the USA, any child that makes an accusation of inappropriate behavior opens the door for grand jury indictment. This happened to me 20 years ago in a gym where I coached gymnastics. A gymnast accused me of – I don’t even know what since they never told me – and yet, I never coached her or worked with her at any time since she was not my student. The grand jury threw the case out because there was no evidence at all. Nonetheless to be able to continue coaching I had to spend $1500 to expunge the record. I see this as a potential  consequence of the #MeToo movement.

Donnie Trump and the Untouchables 0

Donald Trump and the Untouchables

or, How He is Draining the Swamp

When I watch what Trump is doing, sometimes I feel like God has raised him us as a modern day Cyrus to deliver  America from the traitors intent on destroying this nation. I have also heard that there are Christian Zionists that hope God will use Trump to usher in the Ant-Christ by enabling Israel to build their third Temple thus hastening the return of the Lord.

Neither point of view is that attitude that God wants His Kingdom to have. While living in a nation, we are still strangers and pilgrims passing through as ambassadors of Christ whose mission is to be salt and light to a lost world. As for the second point of view, we are to resist the coming of the Anti-Christ, for he will enslave the entire world, even though for a brief season. We are called to support and encourage goodness at all times.

Which brings me to the topic of this post. As far as I know, Trump is not a Christian, not that this matters for his effectiveness as the president. But he seems to be a man who wants to truly bring America back to its roots. Also, he seems to be a man who keeps his promises and his first year in office he has done more than any other president in the recent past to help this country.

As seen in my last two posts, I have been closely following the Qanon posts on Reddit and following the research that Q has directed the Anons to pursue. It seems that Edward Snowden’s revelations regarding the NSA (National Security Association) had a positive benefit.   The NSA has spied on all of us, including the traitors, and does know everything about everyone.  While the violation of our 4th Amendment is inexcusable, they do know everything the political criminals have been doing as well.

As I understand what Q has indicated in his drops,  Trump was approached by the military, three years before he ran for office,  who asked him to run with their backing and a plan to drain the swamp.  It seems the plan parallels the work of Eliot Ness who could not stop Al Capone from brewing liquor during the Prohibition until he found out that Capone had not paid his taxes.  Ness arrested him for tax evasion and put him behind bars.
