Nearly all Christian churches abandoned their congregations in early 2020 and nearly all continue to abide by the incoherent birdemic measures imposed upon them.
All, or nearly all, Christian churches have willingly aligned themselves with the global technocratic totalitarian agenda.
Not only have many modern Christians decidedly failed litmus tests like climate change, anti-racism, and equity/equality, but most happily sport these failures as badges of honor.
A great many more are eagerly lining up to get pecked with anti-birdemic juice in the hope of protecting themselves and their "neighbor" so things can get "back to normal", a decision most major Christian churches have endorsed and promoted as a sacred moral and spiritual duty.
In the midst of this seemingly endless parade of blatant evil, there remain some Christians who have not spiritually surrendered to the birdemic coup. I imagine a great many of these Christians are praying and waiting for the arrival of transcendent help. This is, after all, in a spiritual war; and in a spiritual war, one can use all the transcendent assistance one can obtain.
Though I firmly believe that transcendent forces are fully active, I am also convinced that much of this activity is currently and appropriately inaccessible to us. Many Christians who remain committed to the side of God and Creation interpret this inaccessibility as absence and are beginning to feel helpless as the demonic pressure continues to ratchet up all around them.
I imagine a great many of these Christians maintain solid faith in God, but sometimes wonder why God has not responded to this faith. To these Christians I offer the following - perhaps it's time to start wondering why we haven't responded to the faith God has in us.
In a recent post detailing the encroaching danger of mass despair in the West in the complete absence of conceivable worldly solutions to the birdemic, Bruce Charlton noted:
The choice is stark: despair or Christ.
And Christ is necessary, but not sufficient - because each must work actively for his own destiny in this world; and for his salvation in the next.
For most Christians - converged and un-converged alike - the idea that Christ is necessary, but not sufficient immediately raises red flags. But this reaction stems from what I would define as a constricted assumption about the nature of Christ's mission, which is limited to Christ's offer of salvation.
Salvation makes Christ necessary, but our willing acceptance of the salvation Christ offers is also necessary. Those who actively embrace salvation achieve freedom from, but salvation alone does not provide freedom for. Freedom for is the neglected part of Christ's mission - and that neglected part is theosis.
Dr. Charlton's observations regarding the active work required to attain one's destiny in this world and salvation in the next suggests that our destiny and salvation are not dependent solely on the transcendent, but also involve something immanent within us.
When we consider the apparent absence of the transcendent in the world today, it should not inspire feelings of powerlessness and helplessness. On the contrary, the apparent absence of the transcendent should instead motivate us to develop the daring and courage to look within rather than continually look above.
Such suggestions will sound misguided, risky, perhaps even heretical to some Christians who remain entrenched on the side of God and Creation, but I ask these Christians to - at the very least - consider the possibility that the current (apparent) absent of the transcendent is embedded in Divine wisdom and love. Transcendent absence could also be a testament to the tremendous faith God has in Man's latent creative power, as suggested by Nikolai Berdyaev in The Meaning of the Creative Act:
Doubt of man's creative power is a self-conceited reflexion, a morbid egotism. Humility and doubting modesty in places where there should be daring confidence and decision are always disguised metaphysical pride, reflective retrospection, and egoistic isolation, born of fear and terror.
Times are coming in the life of humanity when it must help itself, conscious that the absence of transcendent aid is not helplessness; because man can discover limitless aid immanent within himself if he dares to reveal in himself, by the creative act, all the power of God and the world, the true world, freed from the illusory world.
Note added: I have used the term transcendence rather loosely and vaguely here. For the purposes of this post, I am referring mostly to concept of transcendent help - that is supernatural assistance manifesting in the "natural" mortal world in the form of perceptible signs, communications, miracles and the like.
The apparent lack of such perceivable signs has left many Christians feeling helpless and powerless. My main point here is that this apparent lack of "signs from above" suggests Christians are either not looking in the right places for these signs or have not developed the means to recognize and acknowledge them when they appear.
Rather than inspire feelings of powerlessness and helplessness, I suggest a lack of signs from above should be regarded as a positive sign of God's faith in us. Rather than feel powerless, the apparent lack of transcendent aid should empower Christians to embrace new ways of thinking and understanding and become wholly active in nurturing a divine form of consciousness. Thus, the aid we seek (and the aid we need) needs to originate from what is divine within us.
