Testify

Many years ago… long before I became the heathen atheist I am today… on the evening of January 17, 1991. The night Desert Shield became Desert Storm… that was the night I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior.

At a little Southern Baptist church. Attending a youth group meeting with my best friend. They all said, ‘This is it! As foretold… you have to accept Jesus cause he’s coming back!

That all seemed pretty rational… when I was 12 years old.

For many years I was a good lil’ Christian Soldier, spreading the Word of Jesus as best I could. I memorized the Bible verses and tried to live as He would (WWJD). But as I grew older… as it always goes… I began to ask questions. Eventually there came a point where, either I didn’t like the answers that they gave… or they didn’t want to share with me the knowledge that I sought.

In the spring of 2001, I had a conversation with a devotee of the Krishna Consciousness Movement outside Mars Music on my way to work. I asked him a question that had been brewing in the back of my mind for quite a while.

The teachings of Jesus of Nazareth only go back some 2000 years, whereas the writings associated with their movement go back many thousands of years before that… so I asked him, ‘What does your movement think of the teachings of Jesus?

His answer was quite profound.

He said, in essence… Jesus, by his own admission, was a prophet. He was sharing the Word of God with those who needed it here on Earth. To those people, living in that part of the world, at that particular time. He said what was needed for them to understand… to help them see the LIGHT.

Burnt offerings, animal sacrifices, greed, institutional corruption… all had led them astray. Away from what was necessary for them to make it back to Godhead… to Heaven. To be in the Presence of The Lord.

He said, ‘I am the Way and the Life. No one comes to The Father except through me.’ This is how it’s done, without the unnecessary attachments that had taken them away from the TRUTH. That their relationship with God was personal, and they didn’t need anyone else involved.

He told those people, at that time, exactly what they needed to hear… so that they might find salvation.

At that time I was still a fairly devout Christian, so I instantly recognized what he was saying as blasphemous… but I still gave him a $20 donation so I could have a copy of their Good Book, The Bhagavad Gita.

Probably the best twenty dollars I ever spent.

And who am I to go yelling obscenities into the NIGHT? As if I had some kind of influence or power… I’m just some guy from KANSAS. Just an average American Citizen… it’s not as if I’m married to a Supreme Court Justice or something.

But I will continue to TRY. Because there is a NEED… because nature abhors a vacuum. Cowardice has seeped into the Leadership of BOTH PARTIES, and the unrest continues to GROW.

So allow me to offer an alternative “theory”… one that might REPLACE the toxic one that’s floating around today.

The American People are BEING divided.

We’re being lied to… that’s why nothing ever gets done.

They said All Men are created EQUAL.

All MEN… as in Mankind. Homo Sapiens. The species to which we belong. A Declaration of a basic FACT. The foundational TRUTH upon which the framework of our society was built. Our Union. Our National Identity.

Their belief in this idea that had never been proven, set the initial parameters for the experiment in which we currently live. It wasn’t a suggestion… it wasn’t optional. It is THE principle from which all our rights come.

If we sway from this principle, the experiment no longer functions. If the system that was conceived fails to secure the rights of The People, the United States no longer exists… it becomes something else.

The Rights and Ideals laid out in Our Declaration of Independence, the ones that we would all fight and die for… are a declaration of WAR. Against Tyranny. Against Monarchial Rule… against the OPPRESSION that inevitably comes from both.

The Declaration of Independence is our Mission Statement, the goal we wish to reach. The path may be winding, but the destination remains the same… Equal Justice Under Law. Equal. Means. Equal.

The opinions of a vocal MINORITY are allowed to dominate the headlines. On cable news outlets, on newspaper websites, and on entertainment news programs. The opinions of the MINORITY… presented as if they were held by everyone.

The MAJORITY of this Nation does not believe in Replacement Theory.

The overwhelming MAJORITY of this land CELEBRATES our diversity, because we know… they’ve come here seeking OUR way of life. They come here believing in the WORDS that were written, just hoping for that CHANCE

Because it is SELF-EVIDENT.

The opinion of the MAJORITY is being REPLACED with the opinion of the MINORITY, overruling the Will of The People… and it’s being done by a very wealthy and powerful MINORITY…

… because it is profitable.

They profit off of our division.

So long as we remain SILENT.
