Medieval illumination, The Rich Man and Lazarus Medieval illumination, The Rich Man and Lazarus

For when we first believed in Christ we did not immediately acquire an exact understanding of what we should be doing, nor was it clear to us what we should stop doing and what we should continue doing.

— Diodore, Bishop of Tarsus (d. 394) [i]

You see, God who lives in heaven kept quiet about the rich man’s name, because he did not find it written in heaven. He spoke the poor man’s name, because he found it written there… [ii]

— St. Augustine

This Sunday’s gospel tells the parable of the nameless rich man, living the high life in his mansion, and Lazarus the poor man, who is starving just outside his gate. When they both die about the same time, their situations are reversed. The poor man, suffering the torments of Hades, gets a distant glimpse of Lazarus enjoying the…

MIND GAMES: ‘Extinction Level Threat’, Mind-control, the Missing Link – By Preston James, Ph.D


RIELPOLITIK

Source – veteranstoday.com

‘…Current psychotronic and Mind-Kontrol technologies using remote induction/entrainment make it quite easy for the Secret Shadow Government’s Defense Contractors to create synthetic terror: including lone wolves willing to “sacrifice themselves”:

All terrorism is synthetically engineered, directly or indirectly, and the root cause is always the secret deployment of sophisticated mind-control systems comprised of esoteric Psi-power, Dispensed “News”, “shaped education”, cultural programming, and the SSG deployment of ultra high-tech psychotronics.

Any serious effort by any investigative journalist who tries to report in the Mainstream Media that mind-control is the missing link in all world terrorism and mass-shootings (which just happen to occur in gun-free zones) is quickly neutralized.

The Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM) run by six medias moguls who report to a major investment house on the vanguard of investment technology will either ignore such disclosures or…

Very funny

Zortura's Blog

​I was watching an American

film last night with my

Parents. While

watching the film, a young

boy of my age started romancing

his girlfriend. They kissed each

other and when the guy’s hand

crossed the girl’s private part, I

looked straight at my dad and

noticed that his eyes had changed,

then I focused my eyes more on the

film even though I knew my dad

wanted me to leave the parlour at

once, I did not care. They were still

kissing, this time hotter, then they

both fell on the bed and the guy

was about to open the girl’s bra.

My Dad looked at me with his red

eyes and shouted

“have you ironed the car?”

.

.

I was like.. Yes sir. Infact I put starch😄😄😄

Meditations on The Philosopher King, Plato, and if Utopia is possible.


The Muslim Times

Many great thinkers have devoted their time to trying to understand the ideal society; laying out a system of government, values, and behavior, practiced in their utopia. Few, if any, of these thinkers ever had a chance to directly enact their ideas. While the ideas of great thinkers are often cited by leaders, there are only rare moments when a concept in a Utopian vision is given a real, concrete, demonstration.


But what happens when those moments arrive? They are few and far between, but they do occur. Often we get only bits and pieces of a utopia put into practice, but even these moments can be enlightening.

In the original Utopian book, Republic, Plato lays out the idea of a city state lead by Philosopher Kings, stating “Until philosophers are kings….cities will never have rest from their evils”. Luckily for us, there is a clear example of this being put…
