    I hear you. My only concern is for people to be willing to tune out the media a bit more. I do feel like we are being prepped / conditioned a bit.

    If you already sense that this is not quite right, you’re in a smart place. Just hold onto Christ, wash your hands, be sensible, and hang in there.

    Yes, my dogs have chips to keep track of their vaccination record. I have yet to see any of them manifest Beelzebub.

    The Amish may well think that. I believe they consider much technology to be satanic, so if you apply the same logic, then goodbye car and TV too - and fair enough, it’s a lifestyle choice. There is however absolutely nothing at all in the entire bible that, without a deal of convoluted ‘interpretation’, indicates we should see technology as inherently demonic. Certainly new technologies bring both benefits and risks, but these are actual, measurable things, not mysterious forces. Opponents of the steam engine believed it to be demonic and dangerous, you can look through history and find all kinds of examples of people assigning demonic activity to anything new or different. None of this explains why people think vaccines and computer chips are related to what the bible calls a powerful delusion. From the actual text, along with anything else you consider to have explanatory relevance, what do you believe the link to be?

    The link is regulating who buys and sales globally.

    Ah yes, that's the latest craze in the millennia old fear of progress - anything with 'globe' in it. What are your reasons for believing anything in the bible supports the view that globalisation is 'evil' as compared to nationalism or some other thing?

    Gracia Singh,, friend had a dream where everyone was being made to go into a small tunnel area. Kept hearing Watch out for herd mentality.

    Considering how things are today in the media, apologizes need to be made to Janet Cooke.

    We need to use common sense and go ahead and wear masks and, 6 ft distancing, cleanlyness etc.

    However ... also be wise of this ... ie ... being politically used/manipulated.

    Misery loves company. The miserable people will do anything to bring down those that enjoy this God given life.

    We aren't a long way from China; our illusions and lies are more convincing: we are always incredulous about trivial things because of our limited exposure to what is possible, and what we believe is possible.. We are in a destabilization process that began 90 years ago and accelerated 70 years ago. This time American prejudice for and subjugation of its own citizens is how it's being done. It has nothing to do with party; political party issues are triviality for the distraction of the layperson.

    We did this to ourselves. We are the ones who ignore our own citizens and apologize for their demise. The virus is a red herring for the transition that has already began long ago. When everyone is released from self-imposed Martial Law quarantine, then we see just how close we are to global corporatism (where racism and prejudice is only reserved for the most degerate of humanity, and the rest of us lot are happy to be quiet and subservient to our illusions).

    You have to admire how easy Americans give up the nation because of things that are obvious but not admitted. It would take most nations decades of actual fighting foreign powers before they are absorbed. In that respect, Americans are efficient in bringing their own preventable demise.

    I dunno. Seems to me things are playing out exactly as we'd expect if the whole virus thing was completely real.

    I've had many of the same suspicions regarding this particular pandemic.

    Sure, it's real, okay – why not? – pandemics happen. But as was quoted in a previous post, I wouldn't be surprised to find out there are people who are not going to let this serious crisis go to waste. It’s providing an opportunity for those with questionable motives. Life is throwing some serious lemons and there are some who are using those lemons to concoct some equally serious lemonade, the taste of which not all may like when it’s over. The World Economic Forum doesn’t hesitate to see the situation as an opportunity – you can visit their site where they talk about “The Great Reset” (and here I thought that was just conspiracy-theorist thing – HAH! [​IMG]).

    And you’re right about the media. Every now and then I post on here about how the news should be ignored – a message that, itself, gets ignored, and now we see the results of that ignorance.

    I kind of feel like I’m watching a herd of buffalo stampeding towards a cliff. It will feel soooooo nice to be proven wrong, though. [​IMG]

    It is interesting the refusal to do something so simple, I think it could be part of our Christian duty such as "Do unto others" and such. Maybe I am wrong [​IMG]

    Exactly we have death every day,flu every year.
    If the death toll is impossible to count on a specific reason then someone is lying.
    Why destroy our economy?
    Why shut downs?
    Why call burning cities peaceful protest?
    Why murder elderly in nursing homes?
    Is all this just business as usual??
    Think what you will,but know the conquences ahead.
    If you think history cannot repeat, study what happened to the World after 1929.

    This is nothing but a round about Strawman.
    You can have great technology and live for Christ.
    You can have corrupt technology and who knows.
    Technology is nothing but a tool thats it.
    The motive behind it rests on who is programing the
    paradigm.
