The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists. Hannah Arendt
Meditation: The current president creates fiction wherever he goes. The people he put in charge of major federal agencies do not believe in science and do not adhere to facts. Everything is up for “interpretation”. Own agendas are being pushed, under the premise that reality is “just perspective”, and that random narratives can be created that will replace scientific reality. Scientific and proven facts are called “fake news”. It is deeply concerning that major players within the current government collude upholding this fiction creating philosophy. The current federal legal investigation is being called a “witch hunt”, while government bound news channels create a reality for its constituents where there is no distinction anymore between fact and fiction, true or false. Our democratic country is being undermined from within. Totalitarian rule is what our current president idealizes. It is amazing how we suddenly experience Christians and Scientists as urgently called upon to join forces. The alleged conflict of the past between religion and science suddenly feels ridiculous. Today’s mandate in our current culture war has to be for religion’s spiritual ethics & morals to join forces with scientific proven facts to contradict and hold accountable an emerging totalitarian regime that hides behind a democratic façade.
Prayer: God, we mourn how this culture is slowly being dismantled to have a small group of the super-rich take over this country. With the increasing elimination of ethics, morals and science as pillars of our culture, anything goes. Any lie can claim to be truth, and corrupted media are being used to brain wash and manipulate the masses. God, we experience not only the total attack on and undermining of spiritual values and of science, but we fear the takeover of democracy by totalitarian forces. God, we pray that Your Spirit of truth may empower science, law and religion to join forces, so we as a nation might withstand what is happening. Amen
Jesus words: “Why can’t you understand one word I say? Here’s why: You can’t handle it. You’re from your father, the Devil, and all you want to do is please him. He was a killer from the very start. He couldn’t stand the truth because there wasn’t a shred of truth in him. When the Liar speaks, he makes it up out of his lying nature and fills the world with lies.” John 8:42-44
