Pray that those you love do not learn of the One Thing after it is too late.
The CINO (Christian in name only), the RINO (Republicrat in name only) and the DINO (Democrat in name only) share the strictly worldly obsessions of the Marxists and other atheists. Riches; fame; power; art; science; climate; resources; etc., and, of course, opposition, obstructions and problems relating to all those worldly dreams, plans, programs and things.
I don't get a whole lot of idle time these days, and when I do it's usually in front of the TV. And, when I get my choice, it's usually tuned to RFD-TV. I have developed a taste for Bluegrass, Country and Western, Cajun and generally Southern music, because of its down to earth honesty, intricate and beautiful instrumentation and frequent inclusion of the Gospel in music. However improperly it may be interpreted, at least it is there, it is believed, and note well that it is obscenely absent in nearly all the rest of entertainment today.
That is, where it is not mocked, ridiculed and blasphemed.
And I have enjoyed watching Hidden Heritage, especially the shows that include American Indian Pow Wows, the drums and drum songs and dancing. Especially the men's Fancy Dancing.
The Drum was very well explained in one recorded show I watched yesterday. There was and is wide diversity among the tribes across the land, in language and in ethos; but what all the tribes share in common is the drum. As explained by the Indian interpretive spokesman, the drum beat represents the heartbeat of the earth, and those who gather to listen and to dance have their own heartbeats synchronized with the drum, and all, in a way, become of the same heartbeat.
So the Northern, the Southern, the Eastern, the Western and the Central tribes, many of whom may have been enemies, all shared in common this unifying belief regarding the drum. All would dance together in peace to the beat of the same one drum. That is, to me, a wonderful thought, that all the tribes in all their variety would have this singular belief regarding the drum. That they might all believe, that all men's hearts could beat in unison with the drum.
And in synchronization with the heart of the Giver of Life?
And now, largely under the inspiration of Hidden Heritage's Brule, Indian dancing is incorporating modern music into the picture; while it is beautiful to listen to and to beautiful to watch, I hope they don't entirely lose track of the original principle of the unifying drum.
Such partially hidden unifying cultural themes are, I believe, pointing at God, and His desire for an eventual, universal, willful, strictly voluntary unification with Him. It may be an instinct, placed in our hearts, by Him.
Another song played by a Bluegrass group on Ronnie Reno's show reinforced that hidden theme with its lyrics. I am an old man, and my hearing isn't so good, and neither is my memory, so I can't quote you the exact words of the song, nor even the name of the group; but the message stayed with me and stirred my soul a bit. To crudely paraphrase the important message in the song,
And most of us who come to that realization come to it late in life. Many, perhaps, just in time; but many more never come to it at all. Jesus told us that one thing only is necessary (Luke 10:41-42). He came to redeem those who would be redeemed, and to show us how redemption could be ours. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not (John 1:10).
He said, "I and the Father are one" (John 10:30) and they took up stones to stone him. For which of my good works do you stone me, He asked, and they said not for your works, but for blasphemy, for you make yourself God. He said, if you do not believe for anything else, believe by my works, that the Father is in me, and I in the Father. And they sought to kill him, but he hid himself from their sight.
And what were His works? The deaf heard Him; the blind saw Him; lepers were cleansed of leprosy; on three different occasions he raised someone dead back to life. Finally, He rose from the dead Himself.
None of this was "real" in the natural sense; none of it was natural. It was "super"-natural. He was God.
He was our heartbeat, if we would listen to it and attune to it. But many will not.
"There is no god" say the atheists, who think they are quoting science, when they are really being victimized by Scientism, or science not by proofs, but by democratic vote and popularity.
"There are no unchangeable doctrines" say the CINO Bishops and Priests and Lay Experts, who pretend to be teaching their Religion, when they are really victimizing others through Religionism, avoiding the fixed and permanent Revelation of God to man in favor of, again, democratic vote and popularity of various interpretations and opinions of man.
Always favoring the natural over the super-natural; always favoring the problems of the world over the redemptive and salvific message. The elitist pseudo-scientists will not consider the super-natural; the elitist CINO bishops favor real world political problems over their first duty to their flocks.
As a result, science is corrupted, politics are corrupted, morals are corrupted, and worst of all, the true religion is corrupted, and everyone's heart beats to its own individual rhythm.
And the hearts of evil begin to outnumber the hearts of the good.
That's not the way it's supposed to be. One thing only is important.
Break the trend; make your faith supernatural and permanent, and thereby gain everlasting life. It's a beginning; one soul at a time.
Ask, and it will be given thee.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
