A Very Timely Piece

THE SLOW PROCESS OF BECOMING A DISSIDENT

If someone tried to sell you on a job where you would lose a lot of your friends, be unable to culturally engage with most of modern society, were constantly harassed/targeted, became largely ostracized if anyone found out your job, and that job did not pay you a single cent, you would tell them to bugger off, perhaps in harsher words.

But is that not exactly what being a dissident entails? We recognize all of those things, but choose to do this, anyway. Maybe we are the crazy ones, after all.

I found a meme that captures the process well.

Replace “conspiracy theorist” with dissident in the below meme and it tells the same story:

There is no one born a dissident. It’s just the end result from countless hours deep in research, analysis, and reflection.

The true, final end result of this process is evolving into a spiritual dissident by finding Christ. That is the “proper mindset” I speak of. If one earnestly seeks the truth for long enough, it is where you will end up.

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. “Orwell”.

Some of us got started early, although not necessarily by choice. Life kicked me in the teeth at a young age, more than once. I quickly came to understand that some things were not as I had been told. I also learned to be very careful making promises, and to be sure I kept them. My voting registration has alway been “I”--independent.

Yes Believers are Not of this World. Yes vote for we render to Caesar what is Caesar’s & it is our citizen duty, but God’s children are loyal to a higher kingdom.
