Courtesy Notice:  As life is short, there are two sorts of people I must regretfully decline to allow to follow me on G+:

those profiles that, due to a lack of evidence of life behind the random posts and pretty pictures I must conclude are bots or people who wish to follow me without actually engaging in conversations.  Since I can't measure something from nothing, such profiles do get blocked on sight.   

And, those individuals who resort not to reason but hyperbole and emotion to argue for argument's sake.  I have no time for this sort of hand wringing and ego flexing.  Shame on me if I respond to such people at all, but those following me and slinging their dung in my direction will also be pruned.  

If you like what I post publicly but fall into either category, simply don't add me to your circles and you'll continue to see my public posts when you visit my profile.

h/t to +David Kowalski for a bit of encouragement this morning.
 
The New Testament makes no secret of the fact that entry into the Christian life is an entry into spiritual warfare. There will be opposition, struggle, and difficulties. Even if some battles are lost along the way we must never resign ourselves to defeat or to continuing compromise with the enemy.

They are no allies to our cause who advise us to stop fighting and to surrender to the enemy, yet still consider ourselves Kingdom soldiers. It is only the voices of our spiritual adversaries that encourage us to make peace with ways that are hostile to God's and to accept ourselves in a state of moral rebellion. In reality, those are our truest friends who exhort us to fight on in spite of the difficulties, and to get up and resume fighting if we fall in the heat of battle.

"Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses." -- 1 Timothy 6:12

"Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul." -- 1 Peter 2:11

"Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm." -- Ephesians 6:13

Several years ago I learned that Germany had started arresting parents for homeschooling their children due to the "anti-social indoctrination" being "pushed" on the children. One German family even sought political asylum in the US, which was temporarily refused by the Obama administration but later, under pressure, gave in and granted asylum (IIRC). Germany has been on a dangerous path since, and probably before, this time. And our government is currently pressing hard to become just as tyrannical.
 
Mass Arrests in Germany of Anyone Critical of Islam, Merkel Policies

For a government to start prosecuting law enforcement officials for attempting to protect it’s people shows the utter madness that Germany has succumbed to, but we should not be so quick to dismiss this as a strictly German problem. What it shows is what could happen to the US if we begin admitting refugees en masse:

“The Green-Socialist coalition government in the region of North Rhine-Westphalia are not at all amused by whistleblowers who leaked documents that showed police tampering with witness reports from the New Years Eve sex attacks last month. The red-green coalition, as it’s known, has said they will launch an investigation in order to out the ‘moles’ in their office by questioning the various media sources who broke the story Express.de reports.

The ruling parties say that the documents were disclosed unlawfully and that the information contained within them was classified. The parties have already submitted a formal request to the Parliament President (herself a member of the Socialist Party or SPD) for information regarding an investigation into the matter on Wednesday.

SPD chairman Hans-Willi Körfges has said that an inquiry must authorize prosecution against anyone found to be involved in the leaks. He said that the issues will be discussed behind closed doors and information regarding the inquiry will not be made immediately available to the public or the press.

Körfges stressed that anyone, ‘who published confidential documents, violates the law and endangers [our work],’ would be punished.

Explaining why leaks impair the effectiveness of local government, he said politicians and police would be less inclined to take action in future because they would be thinking of political ramifications before doing their jobs.

The German government itself admits that the reason it will not do anything about the rapes is because of poltical reasons- i.e. they want their power and they do not care at all about Hans Q. Public, his family, his daughter, or anybody at all so long as they get to keep the party going. Now what does that sound like?

There is a disturbing similarity between the current state of the GOP and the EU governments, Germany or not. Germany is simply the proverbial ‘canary in the coal mine’ because Germany is the ‘heart’ of the EU project, and as such it is the epicenter for many of the social and political experiments that the EU conducts.

Politicians are the same anywhere in two ways- first, they reflect to an extent the nature of the society at its weakest points, since unlike we would like to believe, these politicians are the product of the culture, society, educational system, and time in which they live, and power also attracts the ambitious.

The second way politicians are universally similar is that they all want to stay in power. Now this can vary in how it manifests depending on the culture and disposition of the people. However, no politician simply ‘gives up’ power once he has it for the sake of giving it up. In the case of a moral leader (which also, I should add, assumes a moral public on some level), he would give up office for principles- a greater good, such as when George Washington resigned the presidency after two terms as to set a president for future presidents.

On the other hand, a morally bankrupt, corrupt people produces a morally corrupt leader, and a morally corrupt leader cares only for law and order when it suits his personal gain, as the law is an obstruction to the centralization and consolidation of his rule for his own sake and not that of the greater good. There are near countless examples of this throughout history, and resemble the perniciousness of the demonic, fallen angels- when they have power over men, they do not relinquish it unless forced to, and is the reason why Jesus spoke the following:

‘Or how can anyone enter the strong man’s house and carry off his property, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.’ (Matthew 12:29)”

I guessed that if the vote to stay wins, immigration would get the focus needed to fix it, +Mark Barton. Glad to hear that we're getting at least an accurate portrayal of the pain points over here. It will indeed be difficult to sort out. You'll have no shortage of prayers from us.
