Hastert, Duggars, Jenner….ancient history…

See how this works.  Less than two weeks since the headlines read, “Josh Duggar molests sisters”… “Dennis Hastert pleads not guilty in child molestation case”… “Bruce Jenner is now Caitlyn Jenner”.

The entire nation is being manipulated by headlines and thirty second sound bites.  The foundation of the culture is being replaced. Incredibly, the transformation goes completely unnoticed by the masses while the few that speak out in disapproval are considered kooks and weirdo’s; dinosaurs from another age.

The media is formulating public understanding by daily massaging the narrative.  Dennis Hastert, The Duggars, and Bruce Jenner are ancient history already.  They served the purpose of indoctrinating the public to the new worldview.  No longer needed to emphasize the mission, they are discarded as old news. Today will be another story, another issue to report on for a few minutes or with a sensational headline. But, it is more than influencing “public opinion”. The foundation of stone that has been right and true for four hundred years in this county is being replaced with sand…more like water so rapidly there isn’t even time to ponder the change and develop a response.  It’s a Blitzkrieg.

It does not take much effort to live in today’s society.  One doesn’t have to spend time thinking, reading, or listening. It’s all done for us.  Entire worldviews are portrayed in moments and perceived by the culture as truth.  Acceptance by others is the absolute and membership in the status quo the objective. The consensus of popularity and the absolute of “feelings” is the standard. This new worldview foundation began over a hundred years ago in the classrooms of this nation.  It is being populated by only a few but the power of current technology disguises the numbers.  It is deception at the highest level. Just a few in positions of power and influence are now controlling the minds and hearts of millions.

BUT, life is not lived in sound bites and headlines.   Dennis Hastert, The Duggars, and Bruce Jenner have not moved onto the next headline. They are living the daily fallout of the headlines. The shame isn’t replaced over night with happy feelings.  Living the truth takes hard work.  It takes discipline.  It takes obedience to difficult standards that preserve a culture.  That foundation is gone.  The country is being herded intentionally to a place where it cannot stand.

It is up to us kooks and weirdo’s to go out today and refuse to allow the culture to eliminate our foundations.  We must go out and live the truth without fear.  It will not be with headlines or sound bites.  It will be by spending time one on one with others today and every day.   Foundations must be protected.  We will not win this battle in the media.  We will not win this with programs, the shame is too great.  We must walk, one with another.  We must know the truth.  We must think and respond to the lies with courage.  No time to rearrange the deck chairs while the ship is sinking.

The truth rests in the hands of the Wounded Healer.  He is the forever foundation.  We must shore it up
