Wokeness… Elon Misk
What is a fanatic?
Its great to be a fan of someone or something decent…
…but it’s not to be a fanatic.
It’s great to be zealous toward a noble cause…
…but not it’s nit to be a zealot.
It’s great to enjoy a fine meal…
…but it’s not to be a glutton.
The obvious point here is that when most good things are carried to the extreme, they become bad.
They are usually okay in moderation and best at the proper dosage and timing.
This is an essential of excellence in life: harmonic balance.
Yes, there are times when we should jet and other times we are best to rest. A time to push and other to relax. Times to pull and times to rest.
But foremost, we need to be wise. To know the truth. To know north is always north. Not to be a feel and double time in the opposite direction. That’s why we need to measure twice and cut once but we need to cut one way or the other before it’s too late. No decision inevitably becomes worse than a so-so decision. So let’s first choose between right and wrong, the good from decent. then great from good so we can be the best we can become.
When we do that well, we will have plenty of fans but won’t be a fanatic, zealot, selfish glutton.
60 Minutes isn’t worth 60 seconds
60 Minutes is a sad joke, as is most ‘woke’ media. It’s scary what they are producing as ‘investigative’ reporting.
I decided to watch an episode to ‘balance’ my news intake and almost puked 🤮 3 times.
Last week, the show was like a huge Chicken Little 🐓 🌧️ sky falling fear mongering save the planet doomsday episode.
We all need to be good stewards of our planet but please….don’t worship the creation and ignore the creator while remaining in constant freak out mode as Chicken Little.
They sternly warned there is NO WAY to feed 8 billion people and wild life is like nil, on the verge of eradication and climate change is all man made doomsday. They ran this bit on an Alaskan salmon fisherman (who seemed like a great guy and has adapted). I looked up fishing world wide and its up from 142 million pounds to 190 some million pounds that were tracked in a decade.
Plus salmon farms are increasing and where the majority of salmon 🍣 come from anyhow (though I do prefer wild caught – if it says ‘Atlantic Salmon’ it’s farm raised, which isn’t a big deal and less expensive to produce I presume.
Thankfully, its a big resilient planet.
They say its BILLIONS of years old, so no worries – right?

The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it. – Selwyn Duke
One great problem of our society is not knowledge nor lack of information but rather the truth hidden amongst misinformation.
Have you witnessed these haters? How so?

Beware… Hebrews 3:12,13
Like how the flying geese encourage one another flying in formation, let us help another while we can.
Though its by faith we are saved, as Martin Luther so eloquently pointed out in Scripture we need to be diligent in our faith as we most certainly have an enemy lurking about.
Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless;2 Peter 3:14
By our daily habits, by intentional choosing good habits and making our BIG decisions firmly in advance, we are indeed diligent. We put first things first – consistently.
Eph 5:14-16 Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
EACH DAY, HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT.
2 Co 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
1 Co 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
That begins and ends with pleasing our God in Jesus’s name.

Beware: Little Demon Show from FX / Disney
Disney has raised their level of evil. It’s almost inconceivable but eerily true and pathetically perverse.
From Congressman Mike Jones:
The shocking ending to the LSU opener was not the most disturbing part of the game last night. For me, that came during a commercial break in the second quarter when the television audience was presented with the trailer for a new FX cartoon “sitcom” entitled, “LITTLE DEMON.”
I couldn’t get to the remote fast enough to shield my 11-year-old from the preview, and I wonder how many other children were exposed to it—and how many millions more will tune in to the new series, owned and marketed by DISNEY.
The trailer included dark images of Hell, demons, and satanic imagery, and an explanation that the main character is… the Antichrist(!).
Disney provides this surreal description: “Thirteen years after being impregnated by Satan, a reluctant mother, Laura, and her Antichrist daughter, Chrissy, attempt to live an ordinary life in Delaware, but are constantly thwarted by monstrous forces, including Satan, who yearns for custody of his daughter’s soul.”
The actress who voices Laura said in an interview, “I love that we are normalizing paganism. Laura is a pagan. She’s a witch. She’s jacked.”
Another online review explains that Chrissy discovers she’s the Antichrist “in grisly fashion, quickly reducing a gaggle of school bullies into piles of red goo in what turns out to be the first of many spectacularly gory sequences. Chrissy doesn’t seem overly concerned by the whole triple-murder thing, shrugging it off with an easy-breezy attitude that sets the tone for the rest of ‘Little Demon.’”
“Most of the show’s best moments come when it leans into its hellish premise and plumbs the depths of its own depravity. It’s likely you’ve never seen a man punch a hole in his own face before or heard the words, ‘Let’s go boil some babies while their heads are still soft’ in quite that order and, after two decades of South Park, Family Guy, and other cartoon shock merchants, an animated series finding new ways to disgust is a genuine achievement.”
WHAT IN THE WORLD?!?
I could write volumes this morning, and unpack pages of Bible verses here, but instead I’m just going to state the obvious: Please be careful. Our job as parents is to guard the hearts and minds of our kids. This culture has become alarmingly dark and desensitized and this is not a game. Disney and FX have decided to embrace and market what is clearly evil. STAY FAR FROM IT.
