The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Discernment

…Not Any More!

The unspiritual man does not receive the gifts of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. ~ 1 Corinthians 2:14

In a world of liars and thieves, “Discernment” is a most precious gift from God. ~ Shutupnsing 9/6/19

What a week it’s been. As I wrote last Sunday, I spent the previous Friday with recording engineer/producer/friend Adrian in his Brooklyn studio recording three songs. I was back this past Monday to record lead guitar parts, harmonicas and background vocals. During our lunch break we continued the discussion we had started on Friday…essentially explaining our VASTLY differing world thoughts, views, and perspectives to one another. Our conversation seeded today’s SMTU theme of “Discernment” as I realized the two most critical factors contributing to how my friend sees the world, and himself as a Progressive Liberal; 1) He is an Atheist. 2) He lives in New York City. Either one of these two factors alone would make discernment of truth very difficult. The two combined make it impossible. This made me think of our Founding Fathers and their prescient genius in divining the absolute necessity of our Electoral College so very far ahead of their time! The importance of providing the level voting field for the urban and rural teams can never be overstated. Beware the modern voice that decries it! (Epoch_Times_20190906_A13_0) “The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it.”—H.L. Mencken

It also made me think of the old Springsteen line from his very first album, “It’s so hard to be a saint in the city.” How many millions of Adrian’s are there in NYC, Baltimore, LA, and Chicago, etc., who are literally “not able” to discern any problem whatsoever with Drag Queen Story Hours for toddlers? It makes perfect sense that the “unspiritual man” who “does not receive the gifts of the Spirit of God” rejects the spiritual man’s beliefs that sodomy is one of the gravest sins of all, and DQSH is the sexual grooming of our children of, by, and for Pedophiles “for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them…” Next, I suppose they’ll attempt to normalize cannibalism.

To my spiritual mind, the Progressive Liberal is the bartender on the Titanic AFTER she has struck the iceberg…calling for happy hour…sending his suits to the cleaners…after placing his room-service breakfast order for the next morning…and setting his barber’s appointment for the following afternoon. AND, the 1 Corinthians 2:14 passage above suggests that ours’ is the bigger folly for expecting them to behave any differently. This goes well beyond the sexual realm. He is unable to see the western churches burning, the mosques rising, the streets of London bathed in blood and emergency rooms full from the acid and knife attacks, or the streets of LA and San Francisco filling up with rats and plagues from the human feces of the homeless…from inside the impervious bubble otherwise known as Progressive Liberal Land.

NOTE: The devil has designs on the Heartland.

I just learned on Friday that the Warwick Valley School District has plans to sacrifice education on the altar of Social Justice Insanity by declaring all bathrooms open to people based on how they “identify” rather than their true biological gender. There are two schools of thought with regards to what has become of our public schools. 1) Get your kids out NOW! (Home-school or Christian Academy). Personally, I would love to see churches get back into the role of educating children K-12. 2) Allow our children, shielded with the Armor of God, to witness and shine God’s light in the darkness of our modern public education system. (Would love your thoughts on this. Please weigh in below in comment section.)

The “I Am” that sent Moses is about to be officially replaced with “I am not” by Dr. David Leach, Superintendent of the Warwick Valley School District. I encourage you, whether you live in the district or not, to write Dr. Leach* and respectfully ask him who he thinks he is, and how a learned and esteemed doctor of education can turn his back on the very universal truths of every science known to man, the truths that made him who he is and gave him what he has, and now deny them to those he is responsible for, all to appease the ruthless globalist pagan cult known as Progressivism. The gift of discernment tells us who Dr. Leach is really bowing to here…

Which is exactly how we know who we truly are…

When I say…”I am a Christian”                                                                                        I’m not shouting “I am saved”                                                                                            I’m whispering “I was lost”                                                                                                That is why I chose this way. 

When I say…”I am a Christian”                                                                                            I don’t speak of this with pride.                                                                                          I’m confessing that I stumble                                                                                          And need someone to be my guide.

When I say…”I am a Christian”                                                                                        I’m not trying to be strong.                                                                                                I‘m professing that I’m weak                                                                                            And pray for strength to carry on. 

When I say…”I am a Christian”                                                                                        I’m not bragging of success.                                                                                              I’m admitting I have failed                                                                                                And cannot ever pay the debt. 

When I say…”I am a Christian”                                                                                        I’m not claiming to be perfect,                                                                                            My flaws are all too visible,                                                                                                But God believes I’m worth it. 

When I say…”I am a Christian”                                                                                            I still feel the sting of pain                                                                                                        I have my share of heartaches                                                                                      Which is why I speak His name. 

When I say…”I am a Christian”                                                                                            I do not wish to judge.                                                                                                                I have no authority.                                                                                                                    I only know I’m loved.

By Carol Wimmer, 1988

Then He also said to the multitudes, “Whenever you see a cloud rising out of the west, immediately you say, ‘A shower is coming’; and so it is. And when you see the south wind blow, you say, ‘There will be hot weather’; and there is. Hypocrites! You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how is it you do not discern this time?”                          ~ Luke 12:54-56
