Actually, whatever it was you had planned for the next week, month the rest of the year or perhaps even over the next several years…forget about it.
If you’ve been worried about bills that need to be paid, and who hasn’t been, or if you about to make some big investment hoping it will pay off down the road…
Forget about it.
There just isn’t enough time left to be concerned about anything.
According to who you might well ask…well, I’ll tell you…according to any number of scripture spewing evangelical Christians who have been trolling social media telling us all that the scriptures are never wrong, that they are to be taken literally, word for word…100% and apparently some of those scriptures say that as of this coming Saturday…it’s all over…because the world is coming to an end.
Apparently, from what I’ve been told, Luke 21:25 says, “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.”
And then there’s Luke 21:26 which really clears it up by stating, “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.”
Why…it’s as clear as glass…as plain as the nose on your face say the Common Core Christians.
Common Core Christians?
I’ll get back to that in a bit…but Luke, who apparently like his world shaken, not stirred upon its destruction wasn’t the only earthly author to add his two cents into this dire, end of days prognostication…in Revelations 12:1–2, this is added to the mix for even more clarity…“And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of 12 stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.”
I’m not exactly sure but I think that means that the world’s destruction this coming Saturday is going to be a formal affair…so dress appropriately.
Revelations goes on to state that the well-dressed woman is Virgo, which apparently is really important because this coming Saturday, September 23rd, Virgo will be hosting both the sun, and the moon.
Along with all of the aforementioned, there is also something else, a rare alignment, called “the Lion of the tribe of Judah,” which will also be in place this coming Saturday and you know as well as I do what happens when Virgo gets all dressed by wearing the sun and the moon as bling and struts into some formal foo-foo party in Virgo while the Lion of the Tribe of Judah line up of stars, or planets or something is also taking place…
BANG-ZOOM…turn out the lights…the party’s over.
End of days and the destruction of the world.
What, you’re not buying the Common Core Christian warnings?
Trust me, I’ll get to the Common Core Christians thing…just follow me and we’ll get to that together.
They say they’re based in the scriptures, which they claim to be always right, never wrong, and should be taken word for word as…well…as Gospel.
Oh…wait…I forgot something…apparently, there is some super double top secret code etched into the pyramids in Egypt that verifies all of this. I’m sorry I didn’t mention the super double top secret pyramid code before.
I do apologize, but it’s going to happen, because the scriptures say it’s going to happen this coming Saturday and the scriptures are never wrong…except…they have been wrong before.
This isn’t the first time the sun, moon and assorted other orbs in space have so aligned. The whole sun, moon and Virgo thing happens once every 12 years…and when you add in the other orbs being where the scriptures say they have to be to cause the destruction of the world…that has happened 4 times over the past 1000 years.
So…this is nothing new. It has happened before and the world just keeps spinning round and round as it has for the past 4.5 billion years, give or take a day or two which the Common Core Christians will hammer you on, because they are sure that the earth is only 6000 years old.
What they tell you is absolutely true…because the scriptures say it’s true and the scriptures are correct 100% of the time…often isn’t true at all but to those few who profess to be the “true” Christians are really Common Core Christians because it just doesn’t have to add up…for them to believe it’s right.
These are folks who allow the scriptures to rule over everything they do, which is their right, but they also insist that if you don’t see the world through their standards of belief…at least until it all ends this coming Saturday, you are damned to hell. The real problem is…if you follow some other brand of Christianity, or some other faith altogether…you, in their eyes, are the devil incarnate.
Now as I say, believe whatever you want to believe and if it works for you…yippee…but when you use your beliefs to attack others who don’t share them…then you’ve crossed a line and don’t be at all surprised if folks call you out.
Okay…all of that said, there was another Common Core Christian I had a bit of a session with on social media over the weekend, Jerry Rodgers, who swears that because the scriptures supposedly say it 75 times…the world is flat…and he really believes this to be true, just as he believes I’m some sort of heretic for knowing the world is…round.
Oh, I’m not saying that the world wasn’t created flat…I’m saying that over the past 4.5 billion years…it’s put on a little weight, and that I like my faith like I like my world…well rounded.
Fine…you want to be a flat-earther believing it’s all gonna come to a crashing end this Saturday…feel free, but I’ve a few other bones to pick with these nuts. First of all…some of the Common Core Christian flat-earth nuts also seem to think that women should just shut up.
In yet another thread on FB over the weekend, my friend and Right Side Patriots partner Diane Sori was weighing in when this guy, Patrick McCartney piped up with…”Who says you women worship Christ in the first place? Certainly not the word of God.”
Well…it’s a darn good thin Diane didn’t see that or ol’ Patrick would now be capable of pooping twice as fast, and again, that Common Core Christians view of women comes supposedly directly from the Scriptures…ignoring those scriptures that place women directly at the side of Christ.
One would have thought a woman in that thread who did see that inane comment would have taken Patrick on…but…Donna Zipeto chimed in to state, “I do. In 1Corinthians 14: 34 SCRIPTURE SAYS…women are to be silent in the churches. They are not permitted to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says. And verse 35 …..If they wish to inquire about something, they are to ask their own husbands at home; for it is dishonorable for a woman to speak in the church. (I freely praise God in church through song and the lifting of hands. But no, I don’t speak out except in Sunday school.)”
Oh, boy…it seems that some of the Common Core Christians and but a stone’s throw short of actually being Muslims, which is yet another reason why I always say that one should view the scriptures as good stories, but with a pillar of salt.
Another problem I have with some of the Common Core Christians is that they believe their beliefs should be not only the yard stick by which the Republican Party and the Conservatives should be measured…but the very foundation of our nation.
When doing research into this, I went straight to the faith based horses mouth…the Pew research Center…where I discovered that “Seventy percent of Mormons and 64 percent of Southern Baptists lean toward or identify with the Republican Party — but only 50 percent of members of Churches of Christ do.”
Further…Pew found that, “39 percent of members of Churches of Christ identify as or lean Democratic. The remaining 11 percent indicate no political preference.”
Tell a Common Core Christian that our country’s foundation is the Constitution, and they’ll start quoting scriptures in an attempt to prove that as the law of the land, our Constitution doesn’t hold a prayer candle to their interpretation of the scriptures…which by the way…doesn’t believe in prayer candles.
That, of course, explains why some of the Common Core Christian nuts hate the Catholic Church and other faiths that just don’t meet their narrow, cherry-picked vision of the Gospels. And the Common Core Christians, regardless of facts, evidence and proof to the contrary will spend hours and hours annoying and berating you if you, like Diane and myself last Friday and Saturday don’t have anything better to do than poke at them with a fact and evidence based stick.
The point is, according to the Common Core Christians, you can’t be a Christian unless you’re their exact brand of Christian and you’re not truly a Conservative unless you’re their exact brand of Christian either…because when you challenge them with facts and evidence…they start calling you a liberal just as fast as a liberal will call you a Nazi when you challenge them with facts.
Here, we find Donnie Woods, who at times masquerades as Dominic Woods or Dawn Woods on social media, telling the world that “the kings of the earth gave their power to the beast,” as part of his personal, Common Core Christianity crusade against the Catholic church…and that “there is no such position or as pope.”
I hate to break the hypocritical news to Donnie, but the King James version of the Bible that most Common Core Christians swear is the only Bible to be followed…was commissioned by a King of the earth..a Roman Catholic…and the factual news that there is, indeed, such a position as Pope…maybe not in everybody’s church of choice, but certainly in the Catholic church…and the Pope, I’m sure, has business cards to prove it.
Those who wrote, translated and edited the scriptures were but fallible men passing along good stories and fitting those stories into various political agendas…like King James…who wanted his own version of the Bible for that exact reason. There is another fact that seems to be of equal irritation to the Common Core Christians, and that is that while those who wrote our founding documents were also fallible men, they seemed to be a good bit wiser where politics are concerned, in that they penned the 1st Amendment, which was meant to keep politics out of religion and religion out of politics…thus allowing us, as Americans, to vote as we want, and practice whatever faith we like as we choose.
Pretty smart really…and it makes a whole lot more sense than Common Core Christians believing the world will end this coming Saturday because the Bible tells them so.
However…just on the off chance they’re right…I’m going to make sure to be wearing clean underwear on Saturday, because my mom always said…”put on a clean pair every morning just in case there’s an emergency and you have to see the Creator.”
Or…was that “see a doctor?”
Anyway…if you want to see a Common Core Christian’s true colors…just pick up a poking stick and ask one who is busy telling you on Facebook that the Catholics are damned to hell because of the crusades and the inquisition how their social media crusade against the Catholics and their inquisition of any who don’t believe exactly as they do doesn’t make them a bunch of hypocrites.
If you really want to have some fun…poke at em this coming Sunday…the day after they believe the world is going to be destroyed.
Can I get an Amen?
