Eric's Perspective : A podcast series on African American art
In this episode, Eric sits down with Lauren Cross, Ph.D Gail-Oxford Associate Curator of American Decorative Arts at The Huntington. They discuss how she was encouraged to express herself artistically as a young girl and that she comes from a creative family. Her educational journey; interdisciplinary studio art background including photography, different media and installations. How she first became drawn to quilting as an art form; to eventually learn that she comes from a family of quilt makers herself! Her personal work that dealt with the history, gender, hierarchies and dynamics within society.. discovering Gee's Bend while working on a documentary about quilting. They explore the traditions and social and cultural impact of quilt making in this isolated community; the different styles of quilting — from utilitarian purposes, improvisational and story quilt style that is very prominent in the African American community and the role it played in self-expression and body image. How Cross began curating and her passion for acknowledging, celebrating and creating opportunities for other artists from different backgrounds that deserve a platform including her recent appointment as curator of American Decorative Arts; and The Huntington's efforts in the desire to bring more artists of color into the collection.

CAN'T YOU SEE? The Master's Plan • Ephesians 1:15-23 • Faith Community • 4/30/23 Intro: Christmas hadn't been all that spectacular for Joseph Heer. He'd been all alone. No presents to open, no friends to celebrate with. Whether by desire or because of his getting along in years, Joseph, at age 89, pretty much kept to himself. He lived alone in a small two-story brick house, near the downtown area in Washington, Pennsylvania. Apparently not a man of means, he lived by scrimping and sacrificing. In his whole house, there was only one working electric light bulb—not much to keep the bitterly cold December air at bay. And this night the mercury dropped especially low. And Joseph seemed to grow especially drowsy as the cold creeped through the walls of his home. It seemed to settle into his bones, and soon began to numb his mind. All he could think of was sleeping. Two years earlier, to save money, he had called the gas company to turn off his gas, so he had no heat, except from a small electric space heater which he had unplugged to save a few more pennies. Soon, Joe drifted off to a deep sleep, never again to awaken. On New Year's eve, two days later, someone found Joe and called the county coroner, Farrell Jackson. When Jackson examined Joseph, it was apparent that he died of hypothermia: “It was so cold in that house, I couldn't stand it,” Jackson said. He was upset that a man could freeze to death in his own house just because he couldn't pay his bills. But as he and the police secured the residence before leaving, they made a shocking discovery: In Joseph's bedroom, they found an unlocked safe, a steel box under the bed, and another steel box bolted to a table a few feet from the bed—altogether containing $188,545.99. Further, they found his bank account book with a balance of over $400,000. Joseph Heer died rich. You think, something was wrong with that guy! You're telling me! It's almost as if he never made the connection between what he had and what he could do with it; maybe he thought of money as something you hoard, not something you spend. All those resources available, but hardly a cent affected his life. He lived as though he had nothing, even though he could have had nearly anything he wanted. •Couldn't he see? Answer is, no, he couldn't. We shake our heads in disbelief over this recluse and think that we'd never be so blind; yet I wonder if sometimes God doesn't react to us just like we react to Joe. We hear that God has already blessed us with every conceivable spiritual blessing in Christ (1:3), and we yawn and blink and somehow it barely registers what difference it could or ought to make in our lives. We're still confused about our purpose and direction in life; we wonder if we matter at all to God; we struggle with a lack of power to change our thoughts or break habits or react in a godly manner. Yet, the Bible points out that we have a clear calling from God, an inheritance beyond imagination, and power beyond belief. What's wrong with us? Can't we see? And the answer is, no, by ourselves we can't. The truth is, many of us right this moment fail to grasp who we are and all God has done for us. Spiritually, we are more like Joseph Heer who lived poor and died rich. So what should I do as a pastor? Teach more? Apply more? Yell more? Answer is startling: believe it or not, our ability to understand and accept and apply spiritual truth, and see things as they really are depends in large measure on God working in us. And God's continued working in us depends upon our praying for one another. Really. NB: I. [GOD IS CLEARLY AT WORK IN YOU!] After his outburst of praise for all that God has done for us as believers (vss. 3-14), Paul turns his attention to us, the readers, and tells us that he is thankful that we display the marks of God's work in our lives (1:15-16). 15 For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers… NB two marks— [A. Where do we see God working?] [1. In whom we trust: faith in the Lord Jesus] You know that God has worked in a person's life when he stops trusting himself and his own performance and goodness to earn God's favor; but confesses his complete inability to please God & cries out for mercy, and then trusts Christ's sacrifice as the basis for the forgiveness of all his own sins. "Was what Christ did enough?" Person who answers "yes" & really rests on it as a forgiven person—in that person God is working! [2. In how we treat others: love toward all the saints] A 2nd evidence that God is at work in a person's life is the existence of his unselfish, sacrificial concern that he has—not just to a significant other, nor yet to some of his own family, nor even to few close friends, but to everyone. You get in her way & she'll love you! If a person indiscriminately loves those who know the Savior, it's conclusive evidence that his life has been a divine construction zone. (Wait! How do you know that faith & love are signs of God's wkg?) [B. Whom are we to thank?] NB that Paul gives thanks…but to whom? God! It implies that God is responsible for what Paul sees in their lives. EG if I gave you $100 bill, and you turned to Bob and said, Oh thank you, Bob, thank you! I might be a little upset. I gave you that money, not Bob. You don't thank a person who isn't involved or responsible for thing you're grateful for! Follow the thanks, and you'll find the person responsible! So Paul doesn't say, "Thank you for your faith and love!" He says, "I thank God"—because God has been at work to bring them to that point! •Do you realize that your faith in X and love for others is evidence that God is at work in your life? You can be sure God has worked in the person who believes in Jesus and loves other believers. II. [BUT GOD MUST KEEP WORKING IN YOU!] That requires: [A. We must pray!] (vs. 16b) 16bremembering you in my prayers… From this point forward to the end of the chapter is a prayer, asking God to do what Paul as a pastor and teacher could not do; if fact, if God didn't do what Paul is asking, these Christians would be no better off spiritually than Joseph Heer was financially: having it all, yet living as though they had nothing. •Many of us wrongly interpret, “I pray…” to mean “I wish, I hope, I think good thoughts about…” No. Far from it! Prayer is asking God to do what only He can do, what we are incapable of doing. Every time we pray, it is an exercise in faith, in believing that God hears us, & that He will answer and reward those who seek Him. So what is Paul asking for? [B. Our prayers should include two requests]: [1. To know Him better] (vs. 17) 17that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him… •What is it that Paul keeps asking God to give them? the Spirit of wisdom and revelation…Some have thought this can't refer to the Holy Spirit because God already gave every believer the Spirit the moment we believed in Christ. Also, spirit can mean attitude or mindset as it does later in 4:23 (to be renewed in the spirit/attitude of your minds). But I think it is indeed the Spirit. It's one thing to have the Holy Spirit in your life, but another to have Him at work in your life. I fear that for many believers, the Spirit is dormant in their lives. And actually, only the Holy Spirit Himself can open our eyes and give us a spirit of insight and perception, so we have the ability to grasp "wisdom/revelation." Wisdom takes what God has revealed (revelation), and makes it practical so we live it out in life. Why do we need to see this? in the knowledge of Him •Knowledge here refers to knowing experientially. Not just the facts about who God is (which wouldn't hurt), but rather the intimate and experiential knowledge that results from getting to know, love, appreciate, interact with a person in a relationship. What he's asking God to do is to enable us to know Him better by making us receptive to His revelation of Himself and applying that to our experience of Him. •EG: Does God love the world? (Of course.) Does he love you? (I think so.) This past week, at that precise moment when you failed miserably, did He still love you? Hmmm. •OR is God infinite? Sure—in time, space, power, knowledge. But when you pray, do you believe it? ("God, you prob haven't ever seen anything like this, might not be able to do anything about it, but let me fill you in on the details, and maybe you could send someone to look into it.") •OR is God sovereign? "Sure!" Is he in control of your life? "I think so." Do you see Him providentially at work in your life for your good/His glory? ("Not often.") Getting to really know God depends upon His giving us a mentality to personalize what He reveals about Himself! Further, we're dependent upon God's work in our lives not only to know him, but also: [2. To see His blessings] (vs. 18a): 18ahaving the eyes of your hearts enlightened… •the eyes of your heart is a figure of speech: Cut open my chest with a scalpel, you won't find the heart muscle with two eyeballs embedded in it. When we speak of one's heart, we mean the innermost center of a person, where he thinks and feels and makes decisions. We'd say, “deep down inside, in the core of who you really are.” And eyes are figurative for perception. We say "Ahhh, I see!" when we mean "I get it! I understand!" So, eyes of heart having been enlightened means that deep down inside a light_has turned on, and you understand clearly, you grasp the truth and really believe it for yourself! •If you are a believer, you first experienced that “aha” experience with the Gospel. And now Paul asks that God continue to make you spiritually receptive so you can grasp for yourself the truth of what God has really done for you. (Like?) [C. We need to see that…] [1. …we are not directionless!] (vs. 18b) 18bthat you may know what is the hope to which He has called you… •We often think of hope as something uncertain; sort of a wish (“Gee, I hope that happens"); but in the NT hope is more substantial; it has the idea of certainty or expectation. And the hope of his calling means that God has given us a reason to get up in the morning; we typically default to thinking a calling is something we have to do, like a to do list; and absolutely, there are things he wants us to do now (part of His mission is sharing the Gospel with others). But our calling isn't just something to do; it's also someone to become. You are not just to do something, you are to become someone—a certain kind of person. Every day we moving toward being more like the person God calls us to be, or away from His calling. So we should never be directionless! He's laid out for us in Scripture the end game; but we need His help to see it clearly, and not be shortsighted. In the past when God called us, He set the course for our lives, so now we should never be groping in uncertainty and confusion about what God expects. [2. …we are not worthless!] (18c) 18cwhat are the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints… •In the end, when all the dust settles, we will be reigning in glory with Jesus! We'll have a share of an inheritance which goes beyond anything we can now imagine. It will be so wonderful and amazing that Paul can only describe it as riches and glorious—i.e. more than we could imagine or expect, certainly more than we need or deserve, all awaiting us when this short, trouble-ridden life is over. All this Paul has already said (1:11); but here he goes further. NB not our inheritance, but His/God's inheritance in the saints. Hold on to your seats: I think Paul is saying that you and I are God's inheritance. When all is summed up in Christ, we belong to Him and He wants us! We are His treasure. Crazy. God values you as a priceless inheritance! Can you see it? We need God's help to grasp not only what He calls us to, but who we are to Him and what awaits us in the future. So what about right now? [3. …we are not powerless!] (vs. 19a) 19aand what is the immeasurable greatness of His power toward us who believe… •We need to see that God is working in and through us, right now, and that there's no power shortage with Him. He has the ability to handle anything we're facing. Q is, “do we see that?” (“Yeah, but you don't know the problems I face. Not sure God's up to dealing with it. I'm sure not.”) OK, so what's His power like? [D. How great is God's power? 1. His power available to us is immeasurable! (vs. 19) 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His great might… •God's power is immeasurably great (so great you can't assess or measure it!). In Ephesus, there were a lot of gods and goddesses worshiped, and they all claimed greatness—to the point that in Acts 19, belief in the Lord Jesus was undermining the worship of the goddess Artemis. A huge crowd gathered to protest, and chant “great is Artemis of the Ephesians!” —as though somehow that would bolster and protect the goddess' power and greatness. So Paul piles on the descriptive words here to probe God's power, his potential, his supernatural abilities, His energizing working, His greatness, His capability to overcome any obstacle and fulfill any end that He so desires. God's power is immeasurably great—you can't compare it with anything or anyone! So where do I see God power like this? You should focus on Christ, because: [2. God's power is centered in Christ] (20a) 20athat He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead… i.e. •Jesus was raised from the dead: This shows the extent of God's power—He is able to reverse the irreversible. Nothing is stronger, or more inevitable than death. At best you can postpone it, but not prevent it. When death approaches, nothing can escape its clutches. But when it smothered X, God's power broke its neck, and raised His Son from the grave. That's the kind of power that God has for you, the kind that can reverse the irreversible! (God not only exercises power over death, but also over evil): (vss. 20b-21). 20band seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. •Jesus was exalted over all rivals: rule, authority, power, dominion are terms that refer to either human or demonic powers. And it demonstrates the magnitude of God's power. He has exalted the Lord Jesus over every evil angelic being working against Him and us; and He has authority that overrides every other natural and supernatural power, both now and forever. In Ephesus, the common belief that love, health, success and good fortune were controlled by spiritual powers and influences; so many used magic, amulets, charms, and astrology to manipulate fate and get what they wanted. Paul wanted them (and us) to know that regardless of the power (spiritual, political), they are not ultimately in control. God is. •In the first century, power exuded from three sources: 1) the immoral current of the culture 2) the oppressive overreach of the government 3) the hostility of evil spiritual forces •Paul knew exactly what he was saying when he asserted that Christ has no rivals in power. Whether human, angelic or demonic, all power is subject to Jesus. And it's no contest. So: •Jesus was declared sovereign: (vs. 22a) 22aAnd He (God) put all things under His (Jesus') feet… •This reveals the completeness of his power. God has given to Jesus the power to judge and to control everything. He has the right to call the shots in the universe, and everyone/everything will ultimately answer to Him. •Jesus is appointed as Head of the Church (vss. 22b-23) 22band gave Him (Jesus) as head over all things to the church, 23which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. •What is the ultimate demonstration of God's power? Not that He created the universe (He did!), or that He trampled the opposition (He did!), but that He has taken men and women controlled by the Evil One, bent toward unrighteousness, and He has called us, adopted us, redeemed us, and made us members of His family and inheritors of His kingdom. He exercises His vast power to make us blameless and holy before Him in love. What a God! •How powerful is He? His power is strongest in the universe. Nothing else matches it; words fail to completely exhaust it. If God's power is unequalled, and if Jesus reigns with that power at his disposal, what does it say about our ability to trust in him? Any problem too large? Any habit too strong? Any temptation too alluring? Any handicap too paralyzing that His power cannot work in, through, and for us to accomplish His glory? [x] Conclusion: In the over 43 years I've been a pastor, I've taught well over 5000 times. ("Phew, I figured this guy blabbed a lot, but never knew how much!) I admit, I work hard on understanding, communicating clearly, accurately and motivationally the truth. Yet, every time I teach I am faced with the realization that there are some things I just can't do. I can't make you see. Sometimes I look into your eyes, and I see that you see. But sometimes I see haziness; sometimes it is apathy; sometimes it's as if a spirit of stupor has set in us. I quietly stand back and pray. When beginning to teach, sometimes I'm startled to watch the light go on, and I realize God must be at work. God must work in our lives; His Spirit must work to give us wisdom and revelation to know Him better; HE must enlighten the eyes of our hearts or none of us will get it. •The difference between a church where people believe in the greatness and glory and power of God, and love others indiscriminately, who see clearly all that God has done for us and can do in and through us, and a church where people come once a week to sit, and sing, and can't wait to get out of the parking lot is God working in their eyes. And for us to see as God wants us to see, to have our blinders torn off and our vision cleared is praying for one another. •Make no mistake: our ability to believe and grasp the truth of who we are, and who God is for us, is not merely an intellectual exercise, but a moral and spiritual one: the battle for your life today depends not merely on what is said, but on what is prayed. •What if we began to pray earnestly for one another, that we see who God really is, what He's really like; we pray that we get to know Him more intimately and personally, and grasp all that He has for us, wouldn't it revolutionize our lives? God does not want you to be like Joseph Heer who had so much and used so little… Can you see?
Okay, so here's the story: That guy you try to avoid now has his own TV show and inflicts every minute of it on you.

Daily Kos Radio - Kagro in the Morning
David Waldman delivers the Last KITM of the Week as usual, towards the end of the week, but unusually, with a time slot devoted to showcase up and coming talent. No, not Nick Mohammed, but Ace KITM Correspondent Rosalyn MacGregor, here to explain how the youngs are taking over the world, a phenomenon somewhat underappreciated by some of the olds. Tucker Carlson, about to be handed the helm of the SS Newsmax about ten feet from impact with Dominion, enjoys pulling the wings off flies, nearly as much as convincing others to do so. Now, is that Christian behavior? Well, it is the behavior Rupert Murdoch's fiancée swooned over, which could be why she's an ex-fiancée, and Tucker's an ex-Fox employee. Vladimir Putin's public acts of religious piety make him more powerful and even more dangerous, so a no-brainer on that decision. What does Donald Trump want from another term? Revenge. If he needs to promise MAGA voters revenge, that's OK with him too. The Senate voted to overturn Biden's truck pollution limit, 50-49 without Dianne Feinstein. Trump says electric car batteries throw dirt in the air. Supreme Court justices aren't supervised, and like it that way. Montana state Rep. Zooey Zephyr returns to work but is still ostracized by the Gop in control. Meanwhile, Kansas has banned trans people from schools, prisons, women's shelters, rape crisis shelters, and locker rooms. A Nebraska Democratic lawmaker is under investigation because she has a trans child. Marjorie Traitor Greene not only believes transgenderism is as dangerous as guns, she believes the danger of guns is transgenderism... Or that transgenderism is mass shooting? Gee, who knows with her. The only way transgender persecution will be addressed is when enough Republican children choose to be trans. A Washington target shooter missed his target and hit a nearby orchard worker in the face. A guy excused himself from a date to go shoot someone, and returned before his order was served. A failed Gop candidate stepped out of a Republican committee meeting to fetch his gun.

For what one podcaster describes as perhaps "the most pivotal episode of the series so far," the Yellowjackets squad is BACK to talk out all the chaos.

“Esta es una historia épica. Henry Gee es un escritor maravillosamente atractivo, que hace malabarismos con el humor, la precisión, la controversia y la poesía para enriquecer su relato telescópico”, escribió sobre nuestro invitado de hoy el escritor de ciencia Simon Ings en The Times Of London. El paleontólogo y reconocido escritor británico Henry Gee nos paseará EN UN podcast por el origen del planeta Tierra, una roca impactada por cometas y asteroides gobernada por el viento y por el mar. Traducido a 22 idiomas, su libro “Una (muy) breve historia de la vida en la Tierra” repasa los 4.600 años de una historia que empezó con los primeros habitantes que prosperaron en las profundidades volcánicas, en el fondo del océano y luego, en emocionante aventura, en la tierra firme. La escritura de este libro que multiplica sus lectores y que ha hecho noticia, empezó en la sala de redacción de la revista científica Nature, en la que Gee lleva más de tres décadas como editor jefe de Biología Evolutiva: “Llegué como reportero por tres meses y aquí sigo 35 años después”. Escucha esta conversación entre Henry Gee y Margarita Valencia, traductora, escritora, maestra de la edición en Colombia, escritora y traductora de obras como la de Harold Bloom. Una atractiva conversación sobre la vida que resistió al fuego y al hielo en un planeta que alguna vez fue una bola en llamas y se convirtió en un mundo de agua. Un fascinante pasado acuático rastreable también en el cuerpo: la composición de nuestros dientes —esmalte, dentina y hueso— es la misma que la de la piel acorazada de los primeros peces. Es, también, la historia de la persistencia de lo vivo que, del hielo o la extinción, retornó siempre con más complejidad para continuar, de formas sorprendentes, su incierta aventura.
FUEL FOR PRAISE! The Master's Plan • Ephesians 1:3-8 • Faith Community • 4/23/23 Intro: I think people today aren't too different from people 2000 years ago. Sure, we drive cars, fly in airplanes, take antibiotics, soon to enjoy In-N-Out burgers, are glued to our cell phones, Google information from Wikipedia, and a thousand other fantastic innovations that people in Paul's day couldn't have imagined. But in some very deep ways, we are just like them. Every person who draws a breath shares with everyone else the same very deep needs whether they can articulate them or not. Let me put them into the form of three disturbing questions: [1) Do I belong?] i.e. am I wanted? Believe it or not, that's why we identify with teams, and create cliques with innies & outies, and even befriend each other on Facebook. We don't want to be left out or passed over. And we never want to be the last person on the playground to be chosen when teams divide up. Who are my people, my family? Do I belong? (Here?) We want to be wanted. [2) Do I Matter] Why am I here? What's the point? We want to be a part of something that matters. We want to be significant, to do something that is important, that lasts. We try to find it in our jobs, and in the causes we pursue (in politics or social issues), and even in our recreational pursuits—to be a great golfer, or to visit every major league baseball stadium. It's why some people will pursue significance by trying to be somebody, to be popular—or least well known—even if means shooting innocent people for 5 minutes of fame. What we don't want is to come to the end of our life and realize it really wouldn't have mattered had we never been born. We need to matter. [3) Am I secure?] Life is uncertain, and there are plenty of fears that face us—fear of rejection, of getting hurt or sick, or the granddaddy of them all—dying. Which all of us will do. Eventually. Then what? Our need for security sometimes moves us to earn lots of money, or reduce physical risks, or avoid commitments to others. But life is terribly uncertain, and you can't count on much of anything except that as long as you are alive, you're vulnerable. •We shouldn't be surprised that in our generation, these needs are inflamed. After all, think about what we have been taught: [√You are a freak accident of chance.] From earliest time, we are indoctrinated with the story that we all are a product of evolutionary processes which began accidentally, and as a result of a very long time + nearly infinite chances, the human animal developed into what we are today. There was no reason it happened, no guiding mind behind the process—we're all just freak accidents. As a result: [√There is no reason or purpose for your life.] Kind of difficult to find purpose in your life when you realize that there is no design or reason for anything. If life means nothing, your life won't mean much. Even if you dream up some sort of personal purpose, it's all taste and preference; you're here today, buried tomorrow, and eventually forgotten forever. (Who was Miss America 1937?) I don't know. Who cares? Nobody remembers. Because it doesn't matter. Nobody and nothing really matters. Esp because: [√History is going nowhere.] History is just the recap of what's happened, but there's no order or scheme to it, no purpose or plan. There's no goal, no arrival, or intended end. It is what it was. You can't read into it any greater design. Human history may die out with a sigh or end with the sun exploding, but there's no difference either way. We'll all vanish from the universe, and it won't have mattered that we ever existed anyway. (Wow. That's a pleasant thought.) •What we've been taught inflames and exacerbates these deep human needs to belong, to matter, and to experience some sense of security. We all have these needs, these deep longings. Every person. Even you & me. And God is going to address these needs in such a way that you'll praise and thank Him like never before. But first, you have to understand what he has done. WHAT HAS GOD EVER DONE FOR ME??? Glad you asked… •1:3-14 are a single sentence in the original text (in fact one of the longest in the NT!)—The ESV broke it up into 6 sentences, the NIV into 8! But Paul wrote it as one long outburst of praise, without even taking a breath for all God has done for us! It explodes with excitement and gratitude. Grammatically, it reads like a plate of spaghetti, and it's nearly impossible to cleanly separate all the parts—they run from one thought into another, as though Paul's pen couldn't keep up with his racing mind. And NB what he says: ➡What? We should speak well of God (vs. 3a): Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ… •Blessed sounds like one of those religious words that don't mean much. But the word in Gk is euloghtoß—we get the word “eulogy” from it; and it means to speak well of, to honor and praise. Usually includes expressing gratitude for a person or things he has done to enrich your life. EG your boss gives you a bonus just to encourage you; your friends unexpectedly invite you out for dinner and pick up the check; someone in your Life Group sends you a note of encouragement at precisely the right moment, saying exactly what you need to hear. It all moves you to say, thank you! and you speak well of the person. How well you speak of God depends on how well you grasp all that He has given to you. You have to realize what God has done, and you have to believe it's really true. And that will fuel your praise and worship of Him. So we bless or praise or speak well of God…why? Why? There is nothing He has to give that He hasn't already given to us in Christ! (vs. 3b): …who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, ➡You might be thinking, “Oh great—just what I need: a few more blessings in heaven. How about something here and now?” But this is not saying that all the good stuff that will enrich our lives is locked up in heaven and you'll have to die to get it. Rather, in the heavenly places refers to nothing more/less than the unseen realm of spiritual reality all around us. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist or doesn't affect you. Heavenly places doesn't mean “up” or “later,” but “not limited to what we see; eternal and supernatural.” So he's not referring to cars and boats and houses and new golf clubs—he's saying that the stuff that really matters, the things that are eternal and really important in life, all those things have been already given to us. NB: •with every spiritual blessing—i.e. you've got it all. See what this is saying? God hasn't scrimped with us. He has given us not a few, not some, not adequate, not many, but every, all blessings. There are some groups that teach at salvation we get some, but not all blessings that God has to offer—the better ones of power and gifting come later to the initiated and committed. But Paul contradicts that: there is no missing ingredient for you to put your life together. So you don't need to try to get something you don't now have, but rather you need to realize and use what you've already been given in Christ. It's hard to grasp—but there is no good spiritual blessing remaining that He hasn't given to you. If it is good, and good for you, He has already given it. (Gee, maybe He missed me.) Nope. Not possible. If you are in X, a believer, you are the favored recipient of every blessing He has to give. Remember in Christ refers to what accompanies a relationship with Jesus. It's a package deal! •So now do you get it? Your excitement, your praise and worship, your speaking well of God to others and to Him depends on how well you understand and believe all that He's done for you! Now, before we get specific, let me give the rest of this passage (vss. 4-14) the once-over. This is what God has done for you: 1. God has chosen you (vss. 4-8a). So you belong!. You are not a nobody. You are not an outsider. You are wanted by God. You are therefore not insignificant, but special. 2. God is including you (vss. 8b-12). So you matter! He is taking you into His confidence and including you in His plans and purposes; you are not directionless or purposeless or meaningless. 3. God will protect you (vss. 13-14). So you are secure! He guarantees your future and promises to bring you to Himself where you will be with Him forever. •It's no coincidence that when Paul bursts into praise to God for all His blessings lavished on us believers, he addresses these 3 deep, universal human needs that God Himself has met in Christ. And as we go through this, you'll notice that the Father is focused in the first, the Son in the second, and the Holy Spirit in the third—the Triune God is bent on enriching your life as a believer in Christ! Also, the first concerns our past, the second our present, and the third our future. So His blessings affect our whole existence, not just someday or forever. So let's dive in (but understand I'll only be able to scratch the surface of all that God has done for us.) •Here are three incredible blessings God has given to us: #1. GOD HAS CHOSEN US! A. Three Staggering Thoughts (1:4) even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him… 1. What? “He chose us” Sometimes we're tempted to think that God doesn't care or doesn't know about my life. He's got a million problems to deal with—floods and earthquakes and other disasters; the general deterioration of sane thoughts about what's true—male and female are different, or a baby fresh out of the womb ought not to be put to death; or the twisting of what He's like or the disbelief of what's He's done; His hands are full, and has no time for little o me. I'm just one of a blob of billions of nameless, faceless others who happen to cash in on the His somewhat generous offer of whoever believes will be saved (John 3:16). I sneaked in on the whoever. When I see God face to face, He'll ask, “Gabriel, who's this?” To which Gabriel will answer, “Oh, he's just one of those whoevers.” Nothing could be farther from the truth. He chose us. Not only that, but He chose us! •We often picture it as the reverse: we chose Him. But actually the reverse is true. When the Bible speaks of who chose whom, it always has God as its subject and man as its object. Nowhere does it say that God was passive and we sought Him out and chose Him. NO, we responded to His call through believing the Gospel, the Good News: [Acts 13:48; 1 Thess. 1:4; 2 Thess. 2:13-14] That brings us a lot of questions, but don't let all the questions obscure what is clear so you miss the point: God chose you. He wanted you! That fact is underscored by the next phrase: 2. When? “before the foundation of the world” or as NIV: before the creation of the world. In other words, He chose us before we had the mental faculties to understand or even say God. Even more: You weren't even alive when God chose you. So that clearly prevents any human qualities to intrude in God's choice as if God chose us because He saw in us some great potential. So why did He choose me/you? I have no idea; but again, I do know what He didn't base His choice on—on goodness/merit on our part. NB: 3. Why? “that we should be holy and blameless before Him” He chose us warts and all. [J. Sidlow Baxter: He did not choose us because we were holy, but to be holy…!”/x] We were chosen when in fact we were NOT holy; but we were chosen to become holy and blameless. So He chooses to be involved in our lives both now, and in the outcome. He didn't choose you just so that someday you'd arrive in Heaven, but to purify your life and fit you for heaven now. He's not intending to provide an entrance ticket to forever but a complete overhaul of your life right now. •This is remarkably comforting and humbling. The fact that HE did the choosing is humbling because we didn't contribute anything; but it's also comforting because it assumes He knew what He was getting—a pretty broken and imperfect group of people. So nothing really surprises Him now that we're His. He saw it all long ago, and still wanted us. It's a mind-blowing thought: God knew all about you, and chose you in eternity past before you ever existed to live with Him forever without a single defect or blemish. This is so startling that Paul uses two pictures to help us understand the truth of God's choice for us: His choice is like an adoption (vss. 5-6) and like a redemption (vss. 7-8). B. Two Profound Pictures 1. Adoption (vs. 4c-5a): In love He predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ… predestine—lit. to mark out or decide beforehand a specific course of action. (Only God can do this with any certainty.) And what God decided long ago would happen to us is that we'd be chosen for His family. Paul says God's choice is a lot like adoption in civil law: According to Roman law, a man could adopt a child as his own. However, if he did so, there could be no second class citizens: an adopted child would be placed into the family with all the rights, privileges and responsibilities of that family, with a new heritage and future, a new standing in the community, in effect, a whole new life! The ties to his old life would be severed, and he would assume the identity of a member of that family. •So God walked through the dormitory of human history, looking at spiritual orphans, for some reasons unknown to us, chose us to be adopted into His family, with full privileges and responsibilities as members of His household, and freed from all ties and obligations to our former lives. And because adoption illustrates God's choice, there are no unwanted or surprise-kids in His family. Adopted means chosen, wanted. He chose & wanted you. •“…but I just can't get over why He would want to adopt ME?” Look, I don't know why He'd want you either…but He does! (vss. 5b-6) …according to the purpose of His will, to the praise of His glorious grace, which He has blessed us in the Beloved. All I know is that His choice of you is something that pleases and delights his heart. NB: purpose might sound dispassionate and clinical, but isn't. NLT captures the idea in vs. 5: This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure./x It pleased Him to do so, and it will be to the praise of His amazing and glorious grace! •But God's choice goes further than merely adoption, because even though it clearly reveals His desire and choice, parents who adopt cannot change the fundamental nature of a child, or change his/her past, or impart their nature. So Paul uses a second profound picture to illustrate God's choice—that of: 2. Redemption: (vss. 7-8a) In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished upon us… Redemption always assumes the person is in some bondage—some forced slavery from which they cannot escape. In Paul's mind, you are kind of like a slave. In NT times, the Roman empire had more slaves than citizens—6 million of them. And buying and selling them was a major business. If someone wanted to free a slave, he'd have to pay the purchase price, buying the enslaved person for himself, then grant him freedom by presenting him with a written certificate of deliverance. The payment and the process was called redemption. Don't miss the point: unless someone greater paid the price, it was hopeless for the slave. No one ever redeemed himself. [Ps. 59:7-9, 15/x] God's choice of you was like a redemption because He purchased you for Himself. He chose you when you were bankrupt/unable to pay. You were enslaved to your sins and trespasses, & sentenced to death. If God were to pay that penalty, He'd have to forfeit a life for your life. And He did. God paid that penalty; it cost Jesus His own life. His choice of you was very, very expensive. And to Him, you are that valuable. You cost that much. He was willing to pay that much for you. Don't ask me why. •And how much? You received forgiveness according the riches of His grace (7b)—i.e. not that He has just enough to cover your sins, but instead, He has more than enough. Riches means to have everything you need and so much more. As terrible and as dark and troubling as your intentional sins are, far-far greater is His grace. He has freely given to you more grace and forgiveness than you need or will ever be able to use. And all this—His forgiveness and unearned love—even though it was expensive and cost Him His Son's life—He lavished on all of us (vs. 8a). •This is not the picture of someone who gives meagerly and begrudgingly, just enough, counting the exact change to the penny; no, this is One who thinks nothing of the cost for the joy that He has in choosing you, wanting you, rescuing you, forgiving you. Remember what happens after the Super Bowl or the World Series, in the locker room, when all the players are handed bottles of expensive champagne—not to drink, but to spray around as an act of extravagant celebration?! That's the picture. That's how lavishly God has given you His grace and mercy and forgiveness. Don't ask me why. But He has. #2. GOD IS NOW INCLUDING US! How? (vss. 8b-10) …in all wisdom and insight, making known to us the mystery of His will according to His purpose, which He set forth in Christ, as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in Him, things in heaven and things on earth… 1. In His Confidence It's one thing to be chosen, but entirely another to be included. A while back I had a plumbing problem, and I called a plumber. As he was bent over, tending to the leak, I was observing. I'm naturally curious, so I asked Qs: “So what's that? A pipe wrench. (Silence.) Will it be hard to fix? Nope. See any problems? (Turns, stares right me and says) Yep. Obviously, I was annoying. But God isn't like that. His desire is to include us is what He's doing. Not like a father who impatiently pushes his son away and snaps, “Go play or do something. I'm working. Don't bother me. I need to get stuff done.” Instead, God patiently explains what He's doing, and how He wants us to help Him. And one of the blessings we have is that God has told us the secret of what He intends to do. He unrolls the blueprint for human history and patiently explains to us His plans. And it includes: [•The “Mystery”: Something once hidden, now revealed] mystery doesn't mean what we usually think—something hard to understand, or cloaked in secrecy until the final few pages. Instead, it's a word used to explain what people once didn't understand but now has been revealed to us: God is telling us where He's taking human history! He wants us to be in the know. He's confiding in us in ways he didn't to Abraham, or Moses, or David, or even Isaiah! NB: [•The Unseen Hand: God is at work directing history] It's not all random. History is headed somewhere. NB: God purposes (vs. 9), and predestines/predetermines (vs. 5, 11). Like pieces of a puzzle, events are falling into place and in the end, when the time is right, God will accomplish what He's been working on all along. EG: [•The Outcome: Jesus will reign supreme to His glory] (vs. 10b) to unite all things in Him… What awaits the end of human history is a King, and Kingdom, where all opposition will be subdued. Everything will be made new and made right. Jesus will no longer be an afterthought to anyone, and He will have no rivals. Nothing will dishonor Him, and all will worship and obey Him. •So God wants us to know what He's up to, and wants us to see the big picture. We who know how it will all turn out should see life differently now. We know people matter. We know God wants us to love Him. We know sharing the Good News and helping others come to know and love Jesus is what counts. Little else someday will seem very significant. Our tendency is to get so wrapped up in our daily lives and problems that we fail to see that we are the primary actors on the stage of history; God is writing the script and directing the play. Your neighbors, your family, your job, your friends, your opportunities are all part of the means to bring all things to bow willingly before Him in love. We are never to be purposeless, or directionless; we are part of the grand scheme of things. And that's not all—God includes you in a share of the end product, the Kingdom of His Son! When God gathers everything together in Christ, there are two groups of people who will be included… [2. In His Inheritance] (vss. 11-13a) In Him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of His glory. In Him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation and believed in Him… Wait! [•Who? both believing Jews and Gentiles] vs. 11: “we (believing Jews) who were the first to hope in Christ”: they had heard about the promised Messiah, the coming Christ, the unique one in all the history of the world who would begin to set all things right; they looked—even longed for His coming. Those who accepted Jesus as the Christ will be included. vs. 13a: “you” (believing Gentiles/non-Jews); we were included when we responded to the Gospel/Good News—that Jesus died in our place for our guilt, and was raised from the dead as our Lord. If you trust what He did as enough to make you right with God, you'll receive forgiveness, and a new life in following Him! At the very moment you believe, you are included in Christ—and all the blessings become yours! [•What? a share in His wonderful Kingdom] It's an inheritance! (You say, Wait! I'm included in the will? I'm named as an heir? YEP!) What is it? It can't be spiritual resources, because God says we already have all He has to give (vs. 3). Honestly, I don't know, except that it will be beyond description! [1Cor. 2:9;1Peter 1:4/x] Whatever it is, if we were to see it right now, it'd make the highest standard of living, all the money and toys, the most adventuresome lifestyle seem like suffering with the flu, or living in the a backward 3rd world slum. Hard to imagine. But that is what is waiting for you as part of His kingdom. [Theologian Oprah Winfrey/x] When God gathers everything together in Christ, we know for certain that we will belong, we will have a place, we will obtain an inheritance. How can we be sure? Because the Holy Spirit given to us fulfills 2 roles in us: [#3: GOD WILL PROTECT US!] We know ourselves too well. We've tried and failed, but tried again and again failed, and now we try, but cynically wonder if we even should try. Why bother? We know we'll probably screw it up. If it depends on us, we're completely dependable…to be undependable. So we long for something sure and certain that will bring comfort and assurance, something greater than our own puny efforts. And God responds by giving us His Holy Spirit: [1. With a seal of ownership] (vs. 13) In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in Him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit… The seal refers to a signet ring you depress into wax, or a small cylinder you roll over wax, creating an impressed image or writing. Two purposes for the seal: to claim ownership (the Roman govt. on a document, or a letter from its sender); and to protect it from anyone unauthorized tampering with it. It was a capital offense to open an officially sealed item. Many seals had the name and image of its owner; so in this case, Jesus marks his own image and name with the Holy Spirit on our lives when we believe in Him! It's His way of showing that we are safe until we arrive at our destination. We are secure in Him until that day. I understand that no one else can tamper with my salvation, but what if God Himself has second thoughts/changes His mind about me? NB the second illustration of His protection: [2. With a down payment] (vs. 14) (the promised Holy Spirit) who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of His glory. •guarantee is a word that's used in modern Greek for engagement ring! You give the ring to show how serious you are. But in the NT, the word referred to the down payment or first installment of the purchase price that secured the legal claim on the item. But what if He breaks the engagement or refused to take delivery? He won't. The greater the down payment, the more certain you are He's serious. To assure us of His certainty, God gives us part of Himself as the down payment. That's like giving my son/daughter as a down payment to assure that I'll take delivery for a house or car; not to do so would mean I'd forfeit my son/daughter. That's crazy! Same with God. He's giving you His Word, His most solemn promise, He's assuring you that what He started by forgiving you all your sins at great cost, and starting you on the new path of life as a member of His family, He will finish by completely redeeming your life and bringing you into His Kingdom as one of the named heirs. He will do this, because He has given you His Spirit who will never leave you. [x] What if it's all true? Paul is writing this under house arrest in Rome, awaiting trial before the infamous Caesar Nero, the Hitler of the Century One. But his mind is not on his circumstances, but instead thinks back to before the foundation of the world when he was chosen, and forward to the consummation of all things when Jesus Christ will reign supreme as Lord over the universe; and he smiles and bursts into praise to God. That's perspective! •Do you really believe it? You're wanted by the Living God of the universe. He has already given you all that's eternally worth having. He draws you into His plan, and will use you to accomplish it. When all the dust settles, He promises you, assures you of your place in His Kingdom. How well you grasp and believe that will determine how well you speak of God—what will move you to worship Him and speak well of Him to others. Pray

“Esta es una historia épica. Henry Gee es un escritor maravillosamente atractivo, que hace malabarismos con el humor, la precisión, la controversia y la poesía para enriquecer su relato telescópico”, escribió sobre nuestro invitado de hoy el escritor de ciencia Simon Ings en The Times Of London. Este domingo el paleontólogo y reconocido escritor británico Henry Gee nos paseará por el origen del planeta Tierra, una roca impactada por cometas y asteroides gobernada por el viento y por el mar. Traducido a 22 idiomas, su libro “Una (muy) breve historia de la vida en la Tierra” repasa los 4.600 años de una historia que empezó con los primeros habitantes que prosperaron en las profundidades volcánicas, en el fondo del océano y luego, en emocionante aventura, en la tierra firme. La escritura de este libro que multiplica sus lectores y que ha hecho noticia, empezó en la sala de redacción de la revista científica Nature, en la que Gee lleva treinta años como editor jefe de biología evolutiva: “Llegué como reportero por tres meses y aquí sigo 35 años después”. Escucha esta conversación entre Henry Gee y Margarita Valencia, traductora, escritora, maestra de la edición en Colombia, escritora y traductora de obras como la de Harold Bloom. Una atractiva conversación sobre la vida que resistió al fuego y al hielo en un planeta que alguna vez fue una bola en llamas y se convirtió en un mundo de agua. Un fascinante pasado acuático rastreable también en el cuerpo: la composición de nuestros dientes —esmalte, dentina y hueso— es la misma que la de la piel acorazada de los primeros peces. Es, también, la historia de la persistencia de lo vivo que, del hielo o la extinción, retornó siempre con más complejidad continuar, de formas impredecibles, su incierta aventura.

“It Only Hurts When I'm Gay” (October 25, 1985) On paper, the idea of a sitcom taking on the subject of gay bashing seems like the worst idea, but somehow Brothers — TV's first gay sitcom — manages to tell a real story about violence against gay people while avoiding the hokey “very special episode” tropes. We're as shocked as anyone how good this turned out, and what's more, it's genuinely funny without underselling the gravity of the attack. You can now watch Glen's movie, Being Frank, on Freevee via Amazon Prime. WATCH IT NOW! Please, watch this episode (and other Brothers episodes!) on YouTube.

Here now is the story of how this pre-historic show was reimagined for Saturday Morning. What is the history of the original show? What cast member once recorded his part in a full body cast? How many varieties of Pebbles cereal have there been? All these questions, and more, will be answered in this look at THE FLINTSTONE KIDS! Let's rock!Thanks for ‘tooning in.

Gee, anything interesting going on in the news? The Trump indictment is unfortunately just the oxygen that the media loves to devour. Bob puts forth the "Tinder, Kindling and Windbag" theory of why we are about to once again be deluged with all Trump all the time. Bob notes the similarities between the WWE and the Christians and the Lions! Which Game of Thrones character does Trump resemble most? Bob confesses to being sucked into short clips of provocative questions. His Catholic guilt kicks in. Should there be an online confessional? Starbucks, McDonalds, The Airlines, and Hotels are all ruining their loyalty programs with shrinkflation. Bob gets some good news from the doctor during the show, he takes the call live.

[This blog will always be free to read, but it's also how I pay my bills. So, if you like what you read, please consider a paid subscription.]On Monday morning, at The Covenant School, a private elementary school in Nashville, TN, a mass shooter opened fire over fourteen minutes, killing three children who were students there, all nine years old, and three staff members before police arrived and took out the shooter, mercifully bringing the horror to an end.The children were Evelyn Dieckhaus, William Kinney, and Hallie Scruggs. The staff members were Katherine Koonce (the head of the school), substitute teacher Cynthia Peake, and custodian Mike Hill. According to Gun Violence Archive, this is the 150th mass shooting in the United States this year. GVA is an independent research and data collection organization that defines a mass shooting as “four or more people shot or killed, not including the shooter.”This definition has been criticized by some conservatives, who feel that the metric poorly frames America's gun violence epidemic and accuse those who adopt GVA's definition of “four or more injured” as inflating the problem. They point to the FBI's definition of “mass murder,” which describes any type of violent incident in which four or more people are killed, not just injured.Of course, the more you think about it, that doesn't make much sense. For example, if a mass shooter wounds 10 people—perhaps paralyzing several, to say nothing of other longterm health complications of a bullet ripping through one's body—but only kills one person, that would not fit the definition of a “mass shooting” by the FBI.Nor if a mass shooter wounds 50 people but only kills three. Or wounds 100 people but kills none. Neither of these are “mass shootings” under the FBI's definition.Does that make any goddamn sense? Of course not.Okay, well, fine, conservatives might say, but the threshold is still too low because GVA allows for just four people to be injured—not killed—in order to qualify as a “mass shooting.”Some of them may hint that certain injuries are more qualifying than others. What if, they seem to say, four people are merely grazed by bullets, simply burning their flesh rather than entering their bodies?Gee, I don't know, if their child were merely grazed by a bullet, their tender flesh burned by it, how would they feel? Would they think it's a problem worth addressing?Of course they would, and they'd be right. So, we're sticking with GVA's “mass shooting” definition. Because common sense.Last year, there were 647 mass shootings in the United States. In 2021, there were 690 mass shootings. Since January 1, 2016, GVA has tracked 3,581 mass shootings in the United States.When the carnage at The Covenant School began hitting news and social media in a way that has become nauseatingly familiar, the gun extremists immediately starting doing what they do best: pointing fingers and blaming anything but our country's ludicrously easy access to firearms.Fox News contributor Nicole Parker attempted to posit that “side doors” to schools—meaning physical entrances to schools other than the front—are the real problem here.Bless her heart.There were the other usual excuses by gun extremists — their greatest hits of shifting blaming: that teachers should be armed, that it's an issue of mental health, etc.Of course, I'm not sure anyone expected GOP Congressman Tim Burchett to openly admit he and his conservative colleagues have no interest in finding a good faith solution to the gun violence epidemic. I'm not kidding. Here's the full quote, and I'll even link you to the video:“We're not gonna fix it. Criminals are gonna be criminals. My daddy fought in the Second World War, fought in the Pacific, fought the Japanese — he said ‘Buddy, if someone wants to take you out and doesn't mind losing their life, there's not a whole heck of a lot you can do about it.'”So, there you have it. Criminals are gonna be criminals, the man said. Why bother trying to stop children from being slaughtered? Mr. Burchett's children are homeschooled, by the way.When I first heard of the shooting, my stomach dropped in the same way it has every other time this senseless violence has occurred. And when you find out children were killed, it only compounds that feeling.But this time, on top of that, it was eventually revealed that the shooter—whose name I refuse to mention—was a trans man. Predictably, anti-trans conservatives seized the opportunity to cynically exploit the murder of these children and staff members to further their transphobic propaganda and distract from their own complicity in enabling gun violence. Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed testosterone was to blame, something she has never said all the other times when a cis man was behind a mass shooting. Donald Trump, Jr. and others put up tweets and memes implying trans people are especially violent.You see where this is going.The obvious problem here, of course, for anyone who has mastered 3rd grade math, is that the numbers indicate trans people are substantially less likely to commit gun violence compared to cisgender people and far more likely to be victims of gun violence ourselves.Of the 3,581 mass shootings that have occurred in the United States since January 1st, 2016, four were perpetrated by a trans person. I absolutely refuse to count the Colorado Springs mass shooter who murdered five people at Club Q, an LGBTQ nightclub, and then attempted to claim, through his lawyers, that he identifies as nonbinary, clearly in an effort to troll the victims. And this after neighbors and police brought forward evidence of his long history of anti-LGBTQ hatred.Thus, of that total number of mass shootings since the start of 2016 and the available data on those mass shooters, cisgender people account for 99.9 percent of them. According to a report released last year by the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law—which is considered one of the leading data sources on LGBTQ people—the trans community makes up about 0.6 percent of the 267.8 million people in the United States who are age 13 or older.So, trans people make up 0.6 percent of the population but 0.1 percent of mass shooters, six times less than what would be proportionally expected in an even distribution of mass shooters.It turns out that cis people are disproportionately more likely to be mass shooters.I have no problem recognizing that a trans man murdered these children and staff members. I'm glad police arrived and killed him before he could murder other innocents. But if these anti-trans conservatives are gonna demand trans people answer for him, shouldn't they answer for the 99.9% of mass shooters who aren't trans?I have a feeling we'll never get an answer to that.This week, I am holding the families of these children and staff members in my thoughts. I cannot begin to imagine their suffering, and I am filled with rage at this coward, at this piece-of-s**t, who cruelly took the lives of these innocents.I am praying for two things: 1) a measure of peace and healing that must seem impossible for these families in this moment and 2) that anti-trans conservatives will actually start giving a damn about vulnerable children instead of exploiting their deaths to further a hateful agenda.Charlotte's Web Thoughts is a reader-supported publication.

The Jim-Jonesing of the World. That is not an exaggeration as I will prove. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zI9ub9AgF0, he took his followers to remote Ghana. Cut-off from friends, kept from their families https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofbGZDbbUsEs, long days of forced labor and little food. Then, Jones began prepping the environment for “revolutionary suicide” where his followers and their kids practiced drinking position Kool-Aid. His environment prepping desensitized his victims to the play act of mass suicide. When Jones launched the real thing and the first people who drank the stuff started to moan, scream and have seizures as they realized it wasn't Kool-Aid, but cyanide, many people tried to leave. But, they were surrounded by men with guns, men who probably thought every other guard would kill them if they tried to save the Kool-Aid drinkers. Jim Jones didn't have the help of Stanford University, the entire media, the CIA, DOD, Bill Gates, the WEF and the world's most powerful communications platforms. The next guy had all of that.https://nypost.com/2022/01/20/faucis-home-office-features-photos-of-self-bobblehead/When psychopathic Tony Fauci went full cult authoritarian, he locked people in their homes, cut them off from support groups and social activities, even visits to their doctors.

Kids faced long days of forced Zoom “school”, video games and too much junk food. Old people skipped cancer screenings. Then, Fauci began prepping the environment for “revolutionary medicine” where his followers were told they could breath fresh air, keep their jobs and see their friends and families again if they all took the magic mRNA. Already desensitized to affronts to bodily autonomy and ridiculous diktats, people complied. When the first people who got injected started getting even sicker, https://twitter.com/Storiesofinjury/status/1636151312755707907, many people tried to avoid the https://palexander.substack.com/p/mrna-transcribed-back-to-dna-in-6?utm_source=post-email-title&publication_id=579356&post_id=108812039&isFreemail=true&utm_medium=email. But, they were surrounded by doctors who called the State in them, by men with guns, who wouldn't let into public spaces, threatened with the theft of their jobs, some people were told they would lose their kids. The doctors and men with guns probably thought they would be punished if they helped . . . they were right because, unlike Jim Jones, Tony Fauci was still alive. https://twitter.com/Storiesofinjury/status/1636151312755707907?
