Every human being is prone to self-pity. We are born self-centered, with a powerful drive to protect our egos and our “rights.” When we decide that life has not treated us as we have the right to be treated, self-pity is the result. Self-pity causes us to sulk and obsess over our hurts, real or perceived. At the heart of self-pity is a disagreement with God over how life—and He—has treated us.
The biggest clue that self-pity is not of God is the word self. Any time we are focused on ourselves, other than for self-examination leading to repentance (1 Corinthians 11:28; 2 Corinthians 13:5), we are in the territory of the flesh. Our sinful flesh is the enemy of the Spirit (Romans 8:7). When we surrender our lives to Christ, our old nature is crucified with Him (Galatians 2:20; Romans 6:6). The self-ish, sinful part of our lives no longer needs to dominate. When Self is dominant, God is not. We, in effect, have become our own god. C. S. Lewis put it this way: “The moment you have a self at all, there is a possibility of putting yourself first—wanting to be the center—wanting to be God, in fact. That was the sin of Satan: and that was the sin he taught the human race.”
We live in a world of injustice. Murder, theft, racism, abuse, and oppression are all around us, and Evangelical Christians are currently involved in an internal discussion about the best way we should address such injustice in the world, based on our common Christian beliefs.
I cannot speak for anyone but myself, but here is what I think are the core biblical truths that should inform any Christian thinking regarding injustice.
We believe that the Bible is our supreme authority for all things; the Bible has the ultimate answers for injustice that occurs in our world. First, the Bible teaches that all people are equally made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). All people have descended from the same parents, and thus there is only one race—the human race (Acts 17:26). No matter a person’s age, gender, religion, occupation, or ethnicity, every person has equal value and thus must be treated with equal respect and dignity.
And the Bible also directly diagnoses the root of injustice: sin. Injustice is any act that violates God’s moral law. Since God is holy and righteousness, he requires that all people live righteously, and his perfect justice demands punishment for any violation of his law (Isaiah 13:11). The problem is that the Bible also teaches that “none is righteous, no, not one” (Romans 3:10). All people, regardless of age, gender, religion, occupation, or ethnicity, are sinners by nature, and thus all injustice in this world can be traced to the universal problem of sin.
Both of these realities are essential, foundational biblical truths for any discussion of injustice—all people are equally made in God’s image, deserving of respect, and all people are equally sinners, deserving of God’s just punishment.
But the Bible also provides the only solution to injustice: the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ, God’s Son, came to earth to satisfy the just demands of God’s law and to pay the penalty that sin deserves. The Gospel message is that Christ died for our sins, was buried, was raised on the third day, and appeared to many people (1 Corinthians 15:3–8). Unreserved trust in this message is “the power of God for salvation” (Romans 1:16). Any person, regardless of age, gender, occupation, or ethnicity, who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ will be saved (Acts 16:31).
Yet this does not mean that those who trust in Christ alone for their salvation will automatically stop sinning. The Bible teaches that once someone becomes a Christian, he or she then begins a life-long process of fighting sin and seeking to live righteously out of a heart of love and thankfulness for what God has done (Colossians 3:5). The Holy Spirit of God works within the hearts of every Christian, progressively making them more holy, as Christians faithfully study the Bible and actively participate in a local church (Philippians 2:11–12). The promise of God is, however, that although sin is still present in this world, even among Christians, one day Jesus will come again and eradicate injustice once and for all (Revelation 21:4).
Here is the bottom line: No political party, social strategy, or philosophical system can ultimately solve the reality of injustice in the world. Only freedom from sin by faith in the sacrificial death of Christ alone can produce true justice.
This is why I appreciate what was written in the recently published Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel. The authors of that statement attempted to clarify a diagnosis and solution for injustice based on the authority of Scripture alone. I believe that the Statement well articulates that the best way for Christians to combat injustice in the world is through proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
It is my prayer that such discussions among Christians today will result, not in division among us, but in a renewed motivation to faithfully proclaim the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That message alone is the solution to the world’s injustice.
We have all suffered injustices in life, and so we rebel against anything we believe is not just; from the school test grade that was lower than we deserved, to the great catastrophe that took the lives of many innocent people. We try to find fault, to find who was to blame. When we don’t find it…well, here is always God to blame. We have heard this argument thousands of times: “If God is so good, why did he allow evil in the world?” Thousands of children are dying of hunger, war, natural disasters that hurt the innocent – killings, and discrimination. Do you agree?
There are some things that we forget: 1. God didn’t create evil. His creation was perfect. We ruined it with our wrong decisions and rebellion against him. 2. The reason that so many bad things happen in this world is because of us. How can we place the blame for wars on God, when it is we ourselves who start them? How can we say that he is to blame for children dying of hunger if he provided enough food for us all? 3. God doesn’t permit evil; it happens without his permission. We cannot ask for God’s permission to hate, lie, cheat or kill, because he wouldn’t give it to us. We do all these things against his will. 4. Many blame God so that they don’t have to blame themselves. ALL of us are guilty and one day will have to be accountable to God for what we have done. On that day, no-one can escape. On that day, God himself, the great judge of history will give each one their due place. What will become of you?
Trans People, LGBTQE scream and the online publishing platform Medium suspended the accounts of prominent Christians and Conservative figures Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, Laura Loomer and HNewsWire just to mention a few, the list is long and very disturbing-what the majority homosexuals, transgender, liberal screaming has accomplished in the name of inclusion, human rights, and other nonsense jibber jabber …
Psalm 73 is another good example of this. The psalmist is wrestling with the apparent injustice of the prosperity of the wicked. He questions God’s wisdom in blessing evildoers and wonders if perhaps he has obeyed the Lord in vain. Then, in verse 15, he catches himself and says, “If I had spoken out like that, I would have betrayed your children.” He is recognizing that his emotions are not accurate, and they should not be given voice, even though they feel true at the moment.
Medium spokesperson Sandee Roston in a statement that the company does “not comment on individual accounts.”
Roston did point to a Feb. 7 post detailing an update to its rules.
“We have all seen an increase and evolution of online hate, abuse, harassment, and disinformation, along with ever-evolving campaigns of fraud and spam,” Medium’s rules update reads. “We have strengthened our policies around this type of behavior.”
“We do not allow calls for intolerance, exclusion, or segregation based on protected characteristics, nor do we allow the glorification of groups which do any of the above,” the new rules specify.
The platform’s new rules include banning misinformation campaigns and lets the company consider “off-platform action,” in its decision to ban users.
In its previous set of rules, the company had billed itself as a “free and open platform for anyone to write their views and opinions,” and said it believes “free expression deserves a lot of leeways, so we generally think the best response to bad ideas is good ideas, not censorship.”
This language has been scrubbed from the current version of its platform rules.
The account of white supremacist leader Richard Spencer has not yet been deleted. Unlike Cernovich, Posobiec, and Loomer, however, Spencer has not posted on Medium, HNewsWire has stopped posting, StevieRay Hansen said last week: Its a big waste of time and tweets on twitter” Useless”…
Loomer is also currently suspended from posting on Twitter for seven days over Tweets regarding the shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla.
She is also banned from Uber and Lyft after tweeting that “someone needed to create a non-Islamic form of @uber or @lyft because I never want to support another Islamic immigrant driver.”
Twitter Is The worst:
“Shadowbanning, sometimes known as “Stealth Banning” or “Hell Banning,” is commonly used by online community managers to block content posted by spammers. Instead of banning a user directly (which would alert the spammer to their status, prompting them to create a new account), their content is merely hidden from public view.
“Twitter [also] maintains a ‘whitelist’ of favored Twitter accounts and a ‘blacklist’ of unfavored accounts. Accounts on the whitelist are prioritized in search results, even if they’re not the most popular among users. Meanwhile, accounts on the blacklist have their posts hidden from both search results and other users’ timelines.”
Susan Duclos, from allnewspipeline.com proposes another critical query:
“Many believe those running giant social media platforms such as Twitter, are censoring information sharing based on ideological viewpoints, but after seeing the nature of those censored, blocked, “shadowbanned” as well as how these social media giants are actually being paid as government agents to become a propaganda arm for them?”
I would say the answer is yes. There is a precedent and it’s not good news. It’s documented that IBM Hollerith machines were used in the 1930s and 1940s to create and catalog identification programs in Nazi Germany. Historian and author Edwin Black documents this collusion in his book, IBM and the Holocaust:
“Only after the Jews were identified – a massive and complex task that Hitler wanted to be done immediately – could they be targeted for efficient asset confiscation, ghettoization, deportation, enslaved labor, and, ultimately, annihilation.”
Meditate on that for a moment. They did it with punch cards. Now they’ve got Twitter and a host of willing helpers utilizing a much broader and deeper method of collection – and control. The end game is removing your right to say, think, or even exist independently of the newspeak. It’s past time to stop bowing down to the beast in our hands. And it’s not too late to repent on our knees.
The people spreading concrete information on the dangers of globalism are accomplishing far more than those sitting around buying bitcoin or passing around Q-cult nonsense.
“Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of man and devils”…
Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In, I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply Put, I Do Not Believe the Government Is the Solution for Everything. I Do Not Place Any Faith, Trust, or Hope in Any Politicians to Fix What Is Wrong with the World. “Come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20)
Our government has been overthrown. As evidenced by Trump’s capitulation on the border, his recent servitude to the GMO industry and his acquiescence to the warmongers, our President has been compromised. Our liberties are being eliminated one by one. Gun confiscation is next. The Constitution is gasping its last breaths. Our borders are destroyed and our culture has been turned upside down by every perversion known to man.
Education is useless without the bible (Daniel Webster)
Usually, the Lord doth no great thing for or against his people, without giving warning of it before it comes.
John Wesley who said that what we tolerate in our generation, will be embraced by the next. Wesley is 100% correct! We are living in sick times.
The Left, a broad term for Liberal Socialist Democrats that can only be explained fully by using the Bible explanation of the human race is as follows. A servant of Satan, because you are either saved or lost. This election has brought out the true nature of who you serve. Simply put, it’s Donald Trump, Conservatives, and Christians against the rest of the world. The Left’s Love applies only to those who believe as they do. They Love evil and commit Anarchy against those who love good. They are governed by lies and never tell the truth. On this Friday, Inaugural Day for the swearing-in of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States the Left wants to commit widespread Anarchy to shut down the swearing-in ceremony. Their goal of transforming America, which was founded in Judea Christian values into a Pagan Nation is almost complete. Their goal has always been the total removal of God from American society and the downfall of America. Donald Trump says he is a Presbyterian, but he left off the USA, an apostate church.
- Corinthians 4:8-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
- We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9. persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10. always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
Satan has power over (LGBTQE-TRANS PEOPLE). The “sons of disobedience” referred to in Ephesians 2:2 are those who have not trusted Christ as Lord and Savior (cf. Acts 26:18; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 13:12). The demons are also under the rule of Satan (Matthew 12:24), and one of his titles is “prince of demons” (Matthew 9:34). Satan has a kingdom (Matthew 12:26) and a throne (Revelation 2:13). Satan is called a prince because he is a ruler and possesses the power to manifest evil in the world through influencing people and commanding demons.
HNewsWire- “All political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable.” Just look at some of our modern-day examples: torture is “enhanced interrogation techniques”; murder is “collateral damage”; the aggression initiation of war is a “pre-emptive strike”; the theft of taxpayers’ money is a “bailout”, and the theft of depositors’ money in a bank is a “haircut” or “bail-in”.In a blatant example of Newspeak, the New World Order controllers (through the psychiatric DSM V) have tried to rename pedophiles as “minor-attracted persons” and redefine pedophilia as “sexual orientation”. This makes no sense since sexual orientation has to do with gender, not age, with whether you are attracted to males or females, not how old they are. There are even organizations (like B4UAct.org) which are claiming that pedophiles are being unfairly stigmatized for their feelings!
If homosexuality has been posed as healthy, good and normal, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, so can pedophilia. Pro-pedophilic articles are making their way into academia.

Unfortunately, not all alternative sources are reliable, even some Major Christian (and I use Christian loosely) news sources have been corrupted. They will NOT tell the truth. They just parrot the deceptive narratives perpetrated by those who currently control our government and media. Even those who are honestly trying to present the truth can miss it sometimes. There is so much deception out there. In these last days, you must be wise as serpents and gentle as lambs. It is no time to sleep or slumber. Diligence and vigilance are required. It is critical that you think for yourself and not be a Lemming.
