Everything belongs to God.

The preachers of the false gospel of health and wealth, otherwise called prosperity preachers misunderstand, or purposefully mislead people to enrich themselves. True Christians have everything their brothers and sisters have, and as they have need, are provided for, in Christ, by the means He has ordained via their brothers and sisters. Peter asked, and Jesus answered him. Look at this passage from Mark 10, and see if you understand how this is to be.
“28 Peter began to say to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You.”29 Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake,30 except one who will receive one hundred times as much now in the present age⁠—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions⁠—and in the age to come, eternal life.31 But many who are first will be last, and the last, first.”” Mark 10:28-31 L.S.B. (Legacy Standard Bible)
Do you see it? Wherever you go as a Christian, you will have homes to stay in, food to eat, and family. Don’t miss the part about persecutions. This is our share as well. If you are in Christ, you will suffer for your faith. The promise of eternal life is for the age to come. So you won’t have you name on property deeds, and titles, but you will have what you need, and you will have life eternal. Thank God, and praise Him, our Creator, Master, and Savior.


A Trend in Movies, and Television?

It seems there is a trend occurring with movies and television programs. I could be wrong. I would like to read what you think in the comments. I’ve noticed that the individual hero archetype is being exchanged for an intentionally diverse and sometimes perverse collective of people. The last few movies I’ve watched, and some of the new shows made by the streaming platforms seem to feature diverse collectives, or teams, working together to overcome the antagonist. The protagonist is being replaced. One example of this that is fresh in my mind is the new Matrix movie. Not only was Neo not the main hero, but he seemed like a pathetic, week, shadow, of his former machine dominating self. I won’t spoil the film for you. If it weren’t for all the people helping him through the story, he’d have never made it to the end. I know, many of you will say, “But, in the original movie he was helped by the team of people on the Nebuchadnezzar,” and you’d be right. The difference is that the story was obviously about him being, “the one,” and he was. In these newer films and programs the focus is more on the collective team, rather than any one individual hero type protagonist.

It seems to me that the shift is intentional. I don’t think the people paying for these movies and shows to be made want people to view themselves as heroes. I think they want us to value the collective instead of an individual who excels. They sell you on the idea that it is in the name of diversity and inclusion, but when everyone is special, no one is. They might say, “It is more realistic that a team would be needed.” To that I say poppycock! These people are doing things that are all based in fantasy, and you are telling me about realism? No, I think there is a more sinister intent behind the scenes. The message is, men are not the future. Light skinned people are over. The virtues of the past, are offensive. We are your replacements, and you’d better role over and take it.

I hope I’m wrong.
