We absolutely must avoid group think if we are ever to succeed in bringing about constructive change in our societies.  Group think, which is encouraged by the power elites – who, from behind the scenes, pull our strings as puppet masters – is effectively a highly contagious and collective psychosis.  Group think is for the slothful, those individuals too damn lazy to use their God-given reasoning ability to constructive purposes.

That is my thought for this Thursday, 5 July, 2018.

Below are links to recent, thought provoking and informative essays from other bloggers that merit being more widely read and thought about.

“Andrea”, who it appears may be posting from the Far East in Japan, gives us this no holds barred critique of the power dynamic in play in the US where both Jews and Gentiles alike work to further exclusively Jewish interests in the world.  Do not be put off by the long title.  Some bloggers try to put forth a summary of their post in the title.  This is thought provoking and worth the several minutes to read it.

On this blog, as long time readers know, we have been quite critical of the religious error (really a contemporary heresy) within Christianity today of Christian Zionism (mainly a problem in Protestantism here in the US).  This next essay written from an Orthodox Christian perspective (as in Greek or Russian Orthodox Church) exposes the serious errors of contemporary Christian Zionism.
