#0026 Donald Trump and Evangelical Christians II (Gog and Magog)

Outline Donald v. Jesus Evangelicals side with Donald and Donald sides with a hate-mongering racist. Triggering Armageddon L-Directed thinking: the quick-fix, turnkey, plug-n-play ideologies/doctrines Those who have eyes to see and ears to hear let them see/hear=R-Directed thinkers. Before we get going on the next talking point, let’s have a word about the hate-mongering racist’s question presented to Trump and his response. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCtAJNiplaw I wanted to include this footage as an example of the typical sort of people and the energy they bring with them to the trump thing. Note how unruffled and in key Trump’s answer is to the man. He seems neither surprised nor taken off stride with…

Triggering Armageddon L-Directed thinking: the quick-fix, turnkey, plug-n-play ideologies/doctrines Those who have eyes to see and ears to hear let them see/hear=R-Directed thinkers. Donald Trump is running for president as a Republican candidate. He hasn’t been on the ticket very long but he has shot into the lead leaving the rest of the Republican field in the dust and scratching their heads. People seem to be drawn to Donald’s direct, no-nonsense approach to things. “He’s not afraid to tell it like it is!” supporters have been heard to say about him. He hasn’t used religious…

#0024 Is the idea of Jesus dying for our sins an R or an L-Directed theology?

The theology of Jesus dying for our sins (that is to say the sins of all humanity) is foundational across the board in Christianity. This has been the case for centuries and centuries. It is closely tied to another Christian theology—the theology of original sin. Let’s start with the latter. The concept of Original Sin claims that Adam and Eve, while in the Garden of Eden, disobeyed a commandment from God. God commanded them not to eat fruit from the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. He warned them that if they did it, they would surely die. If you read the whole scripture, it can be interpreted…

#0023 Conservatives and progressives think differently (part VII)

In the previous posts the focus for our discussions has been centered on differences between L-Directed and R-Directed thinkers. In the process of exploring these differences we have gone far afield of typical spiritual topics—especially those of a religious nature; but in saying we’ve gone far afield I wasn’t implying that we’ve gotten off track. In the last post and our discussion about educational models, it may have seemed like we were the farthest away from our spiritualty theme but in a way, it brought us to where I felt we needed to be in order to bring the gist of this whole series home. The tracks on which modern-day…

#0022 Conservatives and progressives think differently (part VI)

I closed the last post with a comment about the 1-room-schoolhouse model of education. To many readers, it probably seemed like an outlandish statement to make in this age of Facebook, Twitter, androids & iPhones and the ever growing crop of gadgets and  convinces emanating  from our techno-savvy world; that rolling back the calendar to 1900 Midwest America might be a move worth considering. I’m not saying that we should, I am saying that we can glean a valuable lesson from some of the realities they, in those times were forced to live. The illogical, cumbersome and uncomfortable environment of the 1-room-schoolhouse in all of its rudimentary educational form had…
