PROPHETICALLY SPEAKING— The Age To Come: False Teachers … (theagetocome)

WHERE WE ARE: “Many on the left believe their agenda is driven by a piety that only they, in their heightened awareness, are capable of. Their motives are pure, they say. Disagree with them and you are evil. They are true believers, and as such, they are entitled to make decisions for others, on behalf of others and despite others. They love their fellow man, they say. They hate injustice, they say. They are true believers in the highest calling of mankind” … (

HOW THEY THINK: “It is clear that many ‘progressives’ are actually regressive. The ‘my way or the highway’ kind of thinking is devolutionary, as if any and all disagreements are always invalid. The vitriol and visceral hatred of the current administration is a good example. No difference of opinion will be tolerated. Disagree and the well oiled machine of personal destruction comes out” … (

WHAT IT MEANS— “The horror of secular leftism is the horror of a race of inferior externalizing men engaged in the project of sealing the hole in creation and literally “reversing” the incarnation. In other words, they want to force all humans — interior and exterior man alike! — to live by the darkness of their absurd principles, which include the impossibility of any vertical inscape, any reconciliation of the celestial and earthly realms. This is to annihilate man as such, because it destroys the fulfillment of man at his inner reaches. It is nothing less than the institutionalization of forced celestial abortion so that no one may undergo the second birth” … (

AN POEM: The Bishop and the Squid: “Jefferts Schori is as conversant on squids as on Scripture” … (amywelborn)

O glimmering squid, washed up on sunset sand,
You will expire, decay, but not alone –
All God’s creatures shine and die, and yet demand
Some greater joy than sin and death atoned:
Enrobed at sunrise I’ll to this gracious strand,
Rejoice, dear squid, I come, you’re not alone!
