Encore of Revival: May 4, 2015

Police, vitamins, children… all invite solutions without Jesus. Nannying through Liberalism and political correctness seem to be the best most can do. As Western society slips into sophistry, Islam is preaching the wisdom of virtue and morality; the most virtuous will survive because, essentially, virtue is about survival.

This is the best kept secret on Sunday Morning. Churchianity is sleeping and doesn’t wake up to tell people to wake up. SCOTUS talked a little about survival as a species during oral arguments on homosexuality and how to have children. Few voices are providing real solutions to our problems.

Maybe it’s good to have society break down, given other choices people won’t reverse. Churchianity wants to keep paying pastors and building buildings instead of paying missions and outgrowing buildings too fast to build new ones. Preachers are talking about positive mental attitude rather than the approaching crisis. Society talks about their “rights” rather than how to survive.  · · · →

Cadence of Conflict: May 4, 2015

Japan gets US nod to respond in Pacific warfare, no longer needing Pentagon permission. An otherwise introspective week with analytical articles and lack of startling headlines, probably because Michael Cole wrote little.

China copied military tech, again, and claimed it’s superior to the US, again. Chinese corruption and environment shared headlines, again. More articles agree with foreseeable change in Taiwan’s 2016 politics; Beijing is angry, again. Reports show China’s influence in money and trade, again, this time, wine and Wal-Mart.
