From Somebody in the previous thread:
I am shocked by people unwilling to see the truth. I don’t know if we’ll ever know all the facts, but I think it’s very clear that there was an effort to cover up the truth and mislead the public. I’ve been part of campaigns for politicians and a couple of them later had a fall from grace. As close as I was to them (close friend in one case) and as vested as I was in them, not once was I blind to facts. What is it about certain politicians that causes people to lose common sense??
If I learned anything in the last five years it is that far too many people have an endless capacity for delusion. They will resist all attempts to tell them the truth.
Remember the Bible story of Moses leading the Hebrews out of Egypt? According to the story God sent multiple plagues down on Egypt, then killed the first born child in every home not marked with lamb’s blood. Then he parted the Red Sea to let the Hebrews escape before killing Pharaoh’s army. When they got to Mt. Sinai, Moses went up the hill to get the Ten Commandments and while he was gone the Hebrews started worshiping the old pagan gods again.
I used to wonder how it was possible that those people could be eyewitnesses to such great miracles and not believe in God. I don’t know about you but if I saw what they saw I would be a true believer in Yahweh.
I don’t wonder anymore.
Chris Steven’s animated corpse could have shown up and testified at today’s hearing and it wouldn’t have mattered.
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. – 2 Thessalonians 1-12
