The End of the World

Key Precept: How to know whose advice to follow to save yourself and loved ones from disaster.

Stepping stone on the path to eternal life: Be informed.

15,000 scientists just signed the largest-ever warning about Earth’s destruction

On Nov 13, [2017] the journal BioScience published the “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice”…The first warning was issued in 1992 when 1,700 members of the Union of Concerned Scientists argued that humans are “on a collision course with nature…”

Noam Chomsky: The world is at the most dangerous moment in human history

The US professor warns that the climate crisis, the threat of nuclear war and rising authoritarianism mean the risk of human extinction has never been greater…

In When at Times the Mob Is Swayed: A Citizen’s Guide to Defending Our Republic, Burt Neuborne mostly focuses on how America’s constitutional foundation in 2019—an unrepresentative Congress, the Electoral College and a right-wing Supreme Court majority—is not positioned to withstand Trump’s extreme polarization and GOP power grabs…as many Holocaust survivors have said, few Germans or Europeans expected what unfolded in the years after Hitler amassed power…

5) King’s Dominion

Precept: God put mankind in charge of creation.

Steppingstone on the path to eternal life: Apply the logic that only the higher dimension of eternal can overcome the fourth dimension of time / death.

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion…over all the earth…So God created man…and it was so…And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” (Genesis 1:26-30)

7) Light and Life

Key precept: Humanity has an implacable enemy.

Stepping stone on the path to eternal life: Of all the available options, trust Creator God himself to show the way.

“In the beginning was the Word / Logos, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men…I am the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by me.” (John 1:1-4, 14:6)

That is deep. How are we to make sense of these defining attributes of word, light, life and darkness, Father, Son?

As they say, “It’s all Greek to me.”

8) Lust Kills. Love Dies.

Key precept: Love conquers all, even death.

Stepping stone on the path to eternal life: Choose to be with the one who loves you.

Satan can’t actually win the competition that he set in motion, but he doesn’t have to.  As has been so well demonstrated in politics, he only has to destroy the opposition.  And God placed the weapon in Satan’s hands when he placed forbidden fruit in the garden of Eden.

9) The King is Dead. Long Live the King!

Key precept: Paradoxically, death is humanity’s greatest strength against immortals.

Stepping stone on the path to eternal life: Choose the right superhuman to rescue us from the mess we’re in.

We can envision the plot of the entire Bible as God and Satan playing a cosmic chess match where winner literally takes all. On one side we have the white king – no, not God but his human son, to whom he gave the kingdom, the power, and the glory. On the other side we have the black king, the angel son of God, who was deeply offended by God’s choice of heir.

It appeared that Satan won the very first match when he lured humanity into a death trap.
