R-21 Dump "Woke" Schools!

Get your children out of the incredibly "woke" public school system. Separate your family from the failed public school system. Public schools are little more than indoctrination camps for the Worldly system built by the Elites. If you are not aware of the many dangers, failures, and wokeness of public schools, then you haven't been paying attention.

And that includes your kid's school. Yes. Your kid's school is as bad as any, whether you want to admit it or not. It used to be, pre-lockdowns, that many parents would agree that public schools were bad. But it was always other public schools, in places like California and New York. It wasn't their kid's school, and they would get mad at any suggestion that it was.

Then the lockdowns happened. Parents had to closely supervise their kids' education on a daily basis. And they were stunned. Parents were forced to realize that, yes indeed, their kid's school is as bad as any. The indoctrination their kids face on a daily basis is staggering. So parents got upset. They started demanding answers, and changes, from school boards. 

This, in turn, upset school board members, who are activists and politicians NOT educators (something else parents have started to realize). These school board members consider themselves experts above questioning, and consider the parents who dare question them to be criminals and terrorists. Sadly, many DAs and even the US Dept. of Justice, took the side of the School Boards, so corrupt is our modern Worldly system.

In response, many parents have pulled their kids out of public schools, placing them in private or parochial schools. But, we have learned that many of these have also gone woke. Homeschooling is the best choice in most cases. And many folks now home school their children. 

Oddly, this surge in homeschooling was made possible by the lockdowns, as many parents (typically mothers) had to quit work to take care of their kids, who were no longer in school. And in doing so, many discovered that the family didn't need a second income after all. 

After deducting taxes, the cost of commuting, the incredible cost of day care and after school care, and other expenses associated with both parents working, a second income in many cases actually added little to the family's net spendable income. Homeschooling is affordable for many, it turns out. 

And many parents discovered the joy of actually taking care of their children. No wonder the activists in the educational system are so upset... 

Full Disclosure: Homeschooling is outside my personal experience, so you will need to do your own research to find out the details of how to do it in your state.

R-20 How To Tell If A Church is "Woke"

Resistance 20

Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF): A Church should be unapologetically Bible-believing and Bible-teaching - and that means ALL of the Bible, from Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21. No cherry-picking the "acceptable" passages. No avoiding the uncomfortable ones. 

How To Tell If A Church is "Woke"

Back in Resistance Article 17, I urged folks to get out of modern liberal / progressive / "woke" churches. Instead, I urged folks to find a small Bible-believing, Bible-teaching congregation to join. Or find a home church or private Bible-study group to meet with on a weekly basis. Or start one of your own with family and friends who also believe in the Bible.

This does beg a question: How to tell if a church is "woke" or not? 

I gave one big clue in R-17 (read that article if you haven't yet). Does the church talk a lot about being "relevant" and "authentic" - two buzz words of the Far Left that reveal a desire to "fit in" with the modern world, rather than staying true to God's Word.  

Worrying about being relevant implies that somehow God's Word has become irrelevant to modern society, and that it is the Church that must move away from the Word and towards the World in order to be relevant. Thus you see lots of modern churches moving towards acceptance of homosexual lifestyles, gay marriage, sex before marriage, sex outside of marriage, multiple sex partners, gender confusion... Hmmm... Its interesting how much being "relevant" actually means accepting and even wallowing in sexual sin. Something to think about. 

Being authentic sounds nice, but what is it people want to be authentic towards? The Bible? No. That's the last thing most folks want. What is too often meant by being authentic is being authentic to one's self, whatever that might be. To many modern folks, an authentic church is one that accepts their Worldly beliefs without imposing God's out-of-date, old-fashioned, standards on them. 

Other Far Left Buzz Words In Modern Churches

"Social Justice" - Social Justice is not Biblical Justice. These are two different concepts, yet many people confuse them (some intentionally so - there are wolves in leadership positions of many modern churches). Biblical Justice is rooted in God's Law. Social Justice is rooted in postmodernism and neo-Marxist critical theory, and redefines justice away from long-held Biblical standards to the current and ever-changing Worldly standards. 

"Environmental Justice" - This is also often called "Creation Stewardship" to hide its actual meaning. It is simply modern environmentalism dressed up in "Christian" clothes. What's wrong with modern environmentalism? There's nothing wrong with wanting clean air and clean water, but modern environmentalism is much more about Leftist political and social ideology than it is about clean air and clean water.

"Economic Justice" - Sounds nice, but Economic Justice is just another name for Leftist ideologies, such as socialism and Marxism. Economic Justice isn't about helping the needy and poor, which is a good thing and used to be called charity, but encompasses a wide range of Leftist thought, much of it unbiblical. 

These, and other far left buzz words, are signs that a particular church is focusing more on political and social ideology (in other words, is "woke"), rather than focusing on worshipping God and teaching His Word. 

The Bottom Line 

Here is the bottom line: A Church should be unapologetically Bible-believing and Bible-teaching - and that means ALL of the Bible, from Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21

No cherry-picking the "acceptable" passages. No avoiding the uncomfortable ones. No trying to "fit in" with the modern world. No denying the existence of Evil. No redefining sin to appease certain special interest groups. No trying to be a "safe space" for modern folks who get offended at every little thing they don't like.

The NKJV, American Patriot's Bible, The Word of God and the Shaping of America - One of my favorites, the New King James Version is literal, accurate, and easy-to-read for most modern folks. The American Patriot's Bible "shows how the history of the United States connects the people and events of the Bible to our lives in a modern world. The story of the United States is wonderfully woven into the teachings of the Bible." Lot's of articles and study notes showing the Importance of God and the Bible to our nation's founding and subsequent history.

Bible Verses To Think About...

By Tim Gamble

Here are some verses from the Bible for you to think about this weekend, as you stay away from "woke" churches and their unbiblical teachings. I do recommend looking these up in your Bible and reading them in context. Context matters. What translation of the Bible should you use? For now, it doesn't matter. Since the Bible wasn't written in English, there is no "perfect" translation. Most (not all) of the following are taken from the NKJV.

Bible Verses To Think About...

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. – Deuteronomy 6:4-5

I and the Father are one.” – John 10:30 (Jesus speaking)

Teacher, which command in the law is the greatest?” He [Jesus] said to him, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important command. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commands.” – Matthew 22:36-40

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. – Deuteronomy 6:5 

You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord. – Leviticus 19:18 

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.” --Matthew 5:17 (Jesus speaking)

Everyone who commits sin practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. – 1 John 3:4 

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, – Romans 3:23 

Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. – 1 Corinthians 15:3-5 

Therefore repent and turn back, so that your sins may be wiped out. – Acts 3:19

If you love me, you will keep my commands.” – John 14:15 (Jesus speaking)

And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. – Revelation 12:17 

Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus. – Revelation 14:12 (ESV)


Ad: The Scriptures - This new English translation includes Genesis through Revelation, and restores the Name of our Creator to the text in each place it occurs. This new version in English is a literal translation by Institute for Scripture Research, overseen by Dr. Chris Koster. New in this 2009 edition: Improvements to the text - seeking a yet closer equivalent to the literal meaning of the original language. Quotations / Allusions from the Old Testament are in bold type in the New Testament, and are accompanied by the text references - aiding your understanding of the original contexts, and how they influence the writers drawing upon them.

R-19 Dump the "woke" financial system - PART 2

Resistance 19

By Tim Gamble
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

Read Part 1 if you haven't yet. 

You will likely still need to be at least partially in the system for now. This includes having some form of financial accounts at a bank or credit union. It will not be possible for most of us to immediately exit the banking system. Most of us have various monthly bills to pay, debt payments to make, shopping to do, paychecks to cash, social security and other checks that need direct deposit, and so forth. It is getting increasingly difficult to do these things in a "cash only" manner, especially after the last few years of lockdowns and forced changes to the economy. Still possible, but difficult. And this situation will only get worse, as the push to a "cashless society" picks up steam. The reality is you likely will need to remain at least partially in the financial system to be able to conduct your day-to-day business. 

Here are some additional thoughts for your consideration:

>>> You are still going to need some money for normal use, for a least a while. 

>>> Move to a cash-only (and barter) basis to the extent that you can. Don't worry about not being able to do this perfectly. Do the best you can.

>>> Keep a small amount of money in the bank. How much money depends on your situation - I would suggest a couple of months' worth of expenses, plus an emergency fund with enough in it to cover a major home or car repair.

>>> Keep a certain amount of cash in a safe, hidden place at home or elsewhere. Maybe divide it up between two safe places. How much cash to keep is up to you and depends on your circumstances.

>>> Turn much of your remaining cash into useful physical assets, such as productive land*, tools, guns & ammo, solar systems, water systems, food storage, etc.

>>> *Productive land may include a homestead (grow / raise food), wooded acreage (timber, firewood, hunting, foraging), land with water on it (water, fishing), space for your business, or even rental property (but consider how you will collect the rent post-collapse). 

>>> Turning some of your cash into useful training (self-defense, shooting, first aid, nursing, various trades, etc.) is likely a good idea. Training cannot be stolen or lost to fire, but it can be lost to time.

>>> Junk silver is a good option for a small percentage of your money, but other things should come first. Some physical gold that you hold in your possession might make sense for wealthy folks with lots of extra money. Remember, despite how they are touted on TV, gold and silver are NOT growth investments, but rather are a storehouse for your wealth. 

>>> There is no such thing as 100% safe. You must learn to live with some risk in life, otherwise you are going to be a miserable person. The smart thing to do, of course, is to manage that risk - to minimize it the best you can. Then rest easy knowing you've done the best you can, and its in God's hands now.

>>> Companies that hold your gold and silver for you are not insured by the federal government. Those companies can go bankrupt, then a Court will decide when and if you get your gold and silver.

>>> Companies that hold your gold and silver for you may not be able to return it to you after SHTF (corruption by the company, confiscation by government, lost to looting, fires, etc).

>>> Stuff in your possession (metals, tools, guns, food, supplies) can be stolen or destroyed by fire, flood, etc. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

The Bottom Line:  There are a lot of things to consider, and no easy answers. Dumping the woke and doomed economic system of the Elites is going to take planning, effort, and lots of hard work on your part. But it will be worth it. You are moving from being a debt-slave and wage-slave, to being truly free, probably for the first time in your life. If you want that, then work your ass off to get it. If you don't want that, then pour yourself a Bud Light, watch some CNN, and decide what pronouns you are going to use tomorrow.
