“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
Matthew 5:11-12 NIV
A trend I have come to notice is that among the “right”, the disdain for followers of Yah has become palatable. A few years ago a man in the “Liberty” movement who professed no faith in any intelligent Creator would not disparage or fight against people who professed that hope. We all agreed that we were comrades in arms and would support Liberty as the ideal that bound us together. As of today the opposite is true in circles that used to be bastions of support for anyone who desired to push back the waters of progressivism.
It matters not in the real world. The only reality which will affect my mountain is my neighbors, at least in the short term. A man on the World Wide Web in somewhereville really has no bearing on my circle at all, again in the short term.
The thing we need to keep in our minds however is that while it is possible that there will be honorable and trustworthy men who are not directed by the Spirit of God, there are far more who will succumb to every base behavior imaginable. If the conversations I have witnessed in multiple places is indicative (and I believe it is) of the nature of some who claim to be anti-progressive, then we have danger on every hand.
Language mocking Christ and condemning His followers as not just fools but enemies, who will be fragged to be eliminated have become commonplace. It seems the enemy within may be a more pressing threat than the Progressives without.
Where does this leave a man who is trying in earnest to do what is right in the eyes of Yah?
Have a group around you who share your beliefs. Make it a priority that your tribe is comprised of God-seeking individuals or if necessary at a minimum people who show no hostility to the tenants and teachings of Christ.
Beware of any individual, no matter his value to the tribe, who shows open hostility or mocks Christ or individuals who seek scripture as a guide to life. Even relatively benign jokes now are a warning sign. He at some point may well betray you or will be a thorn that sows division and strife in your group. Things will be stressful enough during any upheaval without the added worry from within your own circle.
Being of one mind is how God works with groups, just read Acts and it will become more clear. Love, true care and compassion in a group is the way to see the power of the Holy Spirit move and inspire. Being of one mind and committed to a common set of values and ideals will be a comfort and powerful asset in terrible times.
Soon, probably sooner than you can imagine, Christians will become the worst of the scapegoats in the pool of society’s wrath. White Christians will be driven to ground and openly vilified before eventually openly persecuted, ultimately eliminated.
Those in the “Libertysphere” will not come to your aid. They will sit back and mock you as cucks and say “good riddance”.
