  • The Psychopath [Out From] Under the Bed, Part 3 (the threat from Russia and China)

    That is a good point. One must not overestimate the ability of Russia, that garbage pile of slaves and killers. But it seems to me that with near unlimited potential of subversion of our military forces by Russia thanks to likely communist agents all over our government, and their singleminded purpose to kill and loot, we should not be complacent either.

    Im not sure the Russian communist party is revived or that the whole end of the cold war thing could creditably be called a fake.

    It becomes more credible when you consider the sheer weight of testimony from KGB defectors who all basically say the same thing, plus the research of other writers who have noted that the regime in Moscow and the economy of that country is still controlled by "former" KGB and Communist members. It is like saying that Nazi Germany fell, but SS members are still controlling all major posts and own all the businesses, even though they publicly claim otherwise.

    This would not even be a novel strategy by the Russians. Lenin did the same thing during his New Economic policy, appearing to retreat into capitalism when, really, he was only depending on our investment. He created a false Monarchist front with which to spread rumors of the impending collapse of the regime and a return to full capitalism, with which he attracted real dissidents (to liquidate) and to fool Westerners into underestimating the Communist regime and to avoid attacking Russia lest it unify the country before it can collapse under its own weight.

    Communist strategy openly teaches such methods of deception, of controlling both sides, of taking "one step back" so you can take two steps forward later, of creating false splits, collapses, confrontations between groups that are actually on the same side.

    It is not really a matter of "credibility," but whether or not we take the Communists at their word.

    This testimony is important since Russian propaganda in Europe and the West is that 1) There is no war, just a civil war. 2) If there is a war, Ukraine started it with a "fascist coup."

    Here is a link discussing the training camps where future "separatist" leaders in Russia received training for the Ukrainian invasion as far back as 2006:

    He is likely a KGB/FSB agent. Russia’s economy is built around these “sweet” deals for KGB/FSB goons who, under the guise of being independent oligarchs, actually safeguard the wealth of the underground soviet structures and use their money for the purposes of the regime. Much of the Communist Party’s money was saved/transformed in this way, by transferring it out of party coffers and into “private” hands, both within and mostly outside the country, but these same privateers walk a very fine line and must obey a large number of invisible rules in order to stay alive or to retain their positions. Those who break the rules are quickly dispossessed by the state of their wealth (and maybe their lives), which secretly belongs to the state, which is either directly reabsorbed into the government or divided up amongst other or new stooges.

    It is important to understand that in Russia, everything is weaponized. Information is a weapon. The media is a weapon. How they invest their money is also a weapon.

    What evidence do you have Russians are “infiltrating” the conservative movement in America?

    Well, they don't count as "conservatives," as they are Libertarians, at least overtly, but here is one example on our side from Ron Paul's Peace Foundation. Multiple members of that group are tied to shady Pro-Soviet type organizations in Europe as well as FSB tools like Alexandr Dugin:

    "British Helsinki Human Rights Group (BHHRG) not affiliated, despite the name, to the Helsinki Committee for Human Rights. The BHHRG was notorious for claiming that elections in authoritarian Belarus met democratic standards, that Latvia had not been occupied by, but incorporated in, the Soviet Union, that the Romani people of the Czech Republic did not suffer from racism as generally reported, etc.

    snip... "At least three people who were associated with the BHHRG joined the US-based Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity: Daniel McAdams (Executive Director of the Institute), Mark Almond (former chairman of the BHHRG) and John Laughland. The web-site of the Ron Paul Institute is full of misleading articles on Euromaidan associating it with the extreme right, and various drivels by Mark Almond (who likes to present himself as "professor of history at Oxford University", but does not even work at Oxford) are particularly prominent (see for example his "Ukrainian Opposition and the West ‘Playing with Fire Siding With Extreme Nationalists'")."

    http://anton-shekhovtsov.blogspot.com/2014/02/pro-russian-network-behind-anti.html

    Another example of subversion is through the World Congress of Families that sets up "Christian" family orientated talks with Muscovites connected to the Russian regime. The idea being to paint Russia as a Christian empire to appeal to the right-wing, though, of course, we are dealing with a country where only 1 percent of the population even shows up to church on Easter:

    Greetings_Puny_Humans to editor-surveyor
    The feasts are the program, a calendar of sorts, of the future events we face, and provide awareness of where we are in God's time table,

    If we are obligated to follow the Jewish feast days, then we are obligated to be circumcised and to follow the law of Moses. This plainly means that we are not "abstaining from meats" for health reasons, or are following Jewish laws because we want it. It means that we are bound to the entire law, from start to finish, and subject to its penalties:

    Gal_5:3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.

    "For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them." (Gal 3:10)

    By definition, if we refuse to follow the law, having bound ourselves to it, whether it is abstaining from bacon or eating the Passover, we are under the curse and thus it is a "sin unto death," contrary to what you claim.

    The fact that the dietary laws, circumcision and other "shadows" of Christ in the Old Testament have been fulfilled and specifically passed on, is proof that we are no longer debtors to the Jewish law.

    As for your assertion about Christians "learning Torah a little at a time." This idea is quite absurd, since, as already explained, you do not follow "a little of the law," but all of it, otherwise you are living in sin. The verse does not say anything about teaching or learning the Old Testament law. In fact, it calls it a burden: Act 15:10 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?

    And to be taught to be circumcised and to keep the law is called "subversion" of our souls:

    Act 15:24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:

    The true understanding of the verse you quoted was James' explanation for requiring Christians to abstain from blood or meats sacrificed to idols. Since all foods are clean for the Christian, then there is nothing innately wrong with eating them. Paul specifically declares we can eat whatever we desire, whether sacrificed to idols or not. The exception is only this: That it offends our brothers or encourages someone (who is weak) to sin. If it does, we ought to abstain. This was why James mentioned to Jews, because they did not want Christians to put them off by the foods they ate. Paul explains this here:

    "Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake: For the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof. If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake. But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof: Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man's conscience? For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks? Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God." (1Co 10:25-31)

    This is one of the big errors of Pharisaic Judaism.

    This is in fact your error, as you hold that, if we are bound to the Laws of the Old Testament, we need only obey them or learn them "a little at the time."

    And, even though those events are fulfilled, we are still commanded to keep them along with the 5 other events that are not fulfilled.... You see, your wild assumptions of Yeshua endorsing iniquity are falling far short of reality.

    Are you arguing that we are still under dietary laws, must observe ritual feasts, including Passover, circumcision, and all the other dictates of the Old Testament?

    If so, how does that square with Paul and the Church Council in Acts 15?

    It is not enough to just make assertions in my general direction. You have to actually respond to what I say and demonstrate how those verses don't say what they say.

    Greetings_Puny_Humans to All
    Something also of interest on this terror topic. Russian support/creation of Islamic terrorist groups. From a previous post of mine:

    From Alexander Litvinenko, FSB defector who was poisoned with Polonium 210 awhile back in London. His poisoner is still at large. The Russians refuse to extradite the only suspect. He talks about international terrorism, including the claim that Al-Qaeda's number 2 (now number 1, with Osama's death) is an agent of the FSB:

    A. Litvinenko: The bloodiest terrorists in the world were or are agents of the KGB-FSB. These are well-known, like Carlos Ilyich Ramiros, nicknamed "the Jackal," the late Yassir Arafat, Saddam Hussein, Adjalan (he is condemned in Turkey), Wadi Haddad, the head of the service of external operations of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Hauyi, the head of the communist party of Lebanon, Mr. Papaionnu from the Cyprus, Sean Garland from Ireland and many others. All of them were trained by the KGB, received money from there, weapons and explosives, counterfeit documents and a communication equipment for carrying out of acts of terrorism worldwide.

    FAKT: Some may object that each of the listed figures, and the forces supporting them, were engaged in solving their own political problems.

    A. Litvinenko: Certainly, all these figures and movements operated under their own slogans; however, none of them especially hid their "intimate" ... relationship with the Kremlin and Lubyanka. There is a simple question: whether the Russian special services would train and finance people and groups that were not supervised by Lubyanka and did not serve the interests of the Kremlin? You understand perfectly, they would not. Each act of terrorism made by these people was carried out as an assignment and under the rigid control of the KGB of the USSR. And [the terrorism] ... is not casual after the disintegration of the USSR and [reform of the KGB]....

    FAKT: Every terrorist you have named is from 'the old staff' of the KGB. Could you name someone from recent history?

    A. Litvinenko: Certainly, here it is. The number two person in the terrorist organization al Qaeda, who they are crediting with the series of explosions in London, Ayman al-Zawahiri, is an old agent of the FSB. Being sentenced to death in Egypt for terrorism and hunted by Interpol, Ayman al-Zawahiri, in 1998, was in the territory of Dagestan, where for half a year he received special training at one of the educational bases of the FSB. After this training he was transferred to Afghanistan, where he had never been before and where, following the recommendation of his Lubyanka chiefs, he at once ... penetrated the milieu of bin Laden and soon became his assistant in al Qaeda.

    FAKT: Could you hint at least, where this data comes from?

    A. Litvinenko: I can. During my service in one of the most secret departments of the FSB, top officials from the UFSB of Dagestan, who had directly worked with Ayman al-Zawahiri ... were called to Moscow and received high posts."

    http://www.jrnyquist.com/nyquist_2005_0813.htm

    From Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, highest ranking defector to ever come over to the west. Confirms Russia's role in world wide Islamic terrorism:

    "The view that the latest wave of Muslim outrage worldwide, including the murderous assault on the U.S. embassy in Libya and new threats from Iran, is somehow a “spontaneous” reaction to the low-budget film “Innocence of Muslims,” has been revealed to be political naïveté at best, and ignorant or intentional scapegoating at worst.

    After all, even the president of Libya, Yousef El-Magariaf, stated that “no doubt” the attack had been “preplanned,” emphasizing that the terrorists had chosen a “specific date for this so-called demonstration.”

    However, the day of our ambassador’s murder, Sept. 11, 2012, also happened to be the very day the Kremlin celebrated a significant anniversary – 125 years since the birth of Feliks Dzerzhinsky, the founder of the KGB, now rechristened FSB.

    My past experience at the top of the Soviet bloc intelligence community gives me solid ground to state that the Muslim attacks on U.S. embassies and the assassination of our ambassador to Libya, carried out with Soviet-made rocket-propelled grenades, Kalashnikovs and Molotov cocktails, were just as “spontaneous” as the May Day parades in Moscow – and that they have the same organizers.

    In 1972, I had a breakfast with then-KGB chairman Yury Andropov in Moscow. The Kremlin, he told me, had decided to transform Arab anti-Semitism into an anti-American doctrine for the whole Muslim world. The idea was to portray the United States as a war-mongering, Zionist country financed by Jewish money and run by a rapacious “Council of the Elders of Zion” (the KGB’s derisive epithet for the U.S. Congress) intent on transforming the rest of the world into a Jewish fiefdom. Andropov made the point that one billion adversaries could cause far greater damage than could a mere 150 million. Even Muhammad, he said, had not limited his religion to Arab countries.

    FP: Tell us about the PLO and its connection to the Soviet regime.

    Pacepa: The PLO was dreamt up by the KGB, which had a penchant for “liberation” organizations. There was the National Liberation Army of Bolivia, created by the KGB in 1964 with help from Ernesto “Che” Guevara. Then there was the National Liberation Army of Colombia, created by the KGB in 1965 with help from Fidel Castro, which was soon deeply involved in kidnappings, hijackings, bombings and guerrilla warfare. In later years the KGB also created the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which carried out numerous bombing attacks on the “Palestinian territories” occupied by Israel, and the “Secret Army for Liberation of Armenia,” created by the KGB in 1975, which organized numerous bombing attacks against US airline offices in Western Europe.

    From KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn and an anecdote from General Alexander Sakharovsky, same topic as the previous.

    "Golitsyn also confirmed Soviet collaboration in the Muslim world to be used as an instrument of war against the West:

    "In March 1965 the First Conference of Muslims of Asia and Africa was held in Bandoeng. Thirty-five countries were represented. The Mufti of Central Asia and Kazakhstan, Babakhanov, led the Soviet delegation. The conference discussed the use of Muslim proselytizing societies as weapons against imperialism. The need to harness Islam to the service of the revolution has been openly discussed by communist strategists. Based on Soviet experience in Central Asia, the problem of achieving this is considered difficult but soluble."

    He also explained the reasons behind the Soviet Union’s sponsorship of terrorism:

    The objective of violence is to create chaos and anarchy, to impose additional strains on ruling democratic parties, to eliminate their ablest leaders, to force them to resort to undemocratic measures, and to demonstrate to the public their inability to maintain law and order, leaving the field open to the legal communist party to present itself as the only effective alternative force.

    In addition to Golitsyn, General Alexander Sakharovsky, the head of the KGB 1st Chief Directorate (responsible for foreign intelligence) from 1956-1971, said, “In today’s world, when nuclear arms have made military force obsolete, terrorism should become our main weapon.”

    It is not in vain that Russia is called a terrorist state. In Ukraine, Russian soldiers are kidnapping and murdering Catholic Priests and Protestant Pastors. They are gangraping women who they accuse of being "spies" and turning their faces into mush. They are chopping off fingers, burning arms and legs, and even beheading Ukrainian soldiers. They are sticking people into torture boxes or hanging them up on walls where they serve as punching bags for traditional Russian recreation.

    Greetings_Puny_Humans to Zuriel; editor-surveyor
    Editor wrote:**That doesn’t say that anyone will be justified BY doing the law, but nevertheless only those that do the law will be justified.**

    Zuriel Wrote:Are you sure you wrote that sentence the way you intended?

    Good point Zuriel, I forgot to respond to that, though maybe you understood it differently than I do. As currently worded, I don't disagree with his statement. Strictly speaking, those who "do the law," the law of Christ (as opposed to Torah) are justified. It is not the same as saying "we are justified by the law." In other words, grace produces good works, and is therefore characteristic of all those who are saved.

    This is the only way we can ever interpret this in scripture, as the Word of God is quite clear on what the origin of good works is.

    First: "For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?"

    2nd: "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit,"

    3rd: "For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. "

    And lastly: "Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt."

    (1 Co 4:7, John 15:16, Php 2:13, Rom 4:4) The first and second verses plainly teach that good works, and all the evidence of grace, is given by God who "works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure." What God commands, He also gives to us freely -- although, this does not mean that we can live sinless lives, as Paul himself declares in Romans 7, near its latter end, the great conflict that exists between body and mind for the Christian. We are always "falling short" of the glory of God. The last verse makes it clear that no grace (and therefore justification) can come from works of any kind, as this would make salvation a wage for labor provided; as Augustine puts it:

    “For who makes thee to differ, and what has thou that thou hast not received?” (1 Cor. iv. 7). Our merits therefore do not cause us to differ, but grace. For if it be merit, it is a debt; and if it be a debt, it is not gratuitous; and if it be not gratuitous, it is not grace. (Augustine, Sermon 293)

    All salvation is of God from start to finish, and has nothing whatever to do with any internal works of man, nor with the amount of works he does, as if God possesses a scale of justice in heaven, weighing your evil works and your good works together. Christ's blood is all sufficient to wash away every sin, and all those who have not been washed by Christ's blood are damned, no matter how much they give to charity or abstain from bacon, like in editor-surveyor's case.

    To try to turn any of Paul’s declarations into a dismissal of Torah can be seen as a false interpretation on its face. Paul stated plainly in Romans 2 that only doers of the law will be justified.

    I forgot to respond to this. Paul's argument, which you rip out of its context even against your own assertion that we "ought to consider the writing as a whole," is that no one is justified by the law. Hence in Romans 3 he declares everyone guilty:

    "What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" (Rom 3:9-10)

    Note how he writes "we have BEFORE proved" that all are under sin, none are righteous, etc. This was proven in Romans 1 and 2.

    Greetings_Puny_Humans to editor-surveyor
    In Matthew 5, Yeshua affirms this fact, and states that it is to be so as long as the Earth and heaven exist.

    You are referring to these verses:

    "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." (Mat 5:17-18)

    It quite clearly says that Christ was sent to "fulfill" the law. To those of us who are saved, we are no longer under the law, but under grace. The damned, however, are strictly under the law, even the law written on their hearts, and they are condemned by it.

    As for Torah, you are referring, of course, to dietary laws, circumcision, feast days and other ritual laws. These are abrogated by name throughout scripture, all these jots and tittles, especially in Paul:

    "Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law." (Gal 5:2-3)

    Paul's dismissal of circumcision is important since without it one cannot keep any of the laws of Moses, such as the Passover feast:

    Exo_12:48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.

    Here Paul rids us of dietary laws, another jot and tittle:

    "For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer." (1Ti 4:4-5)

    Prayer sanctifies unclean foods, giving us all liberty to eat them.

    Finally, the church in council asserted we were not under the law of Moses, and declared that we were under grace, in Acts 15:

    "Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:" (Act 15:24) No commandment to keep the law, or to be circumcised, were given.

  • The Most Important Passage in the Whole of Scripture

    Greetings_Puny_Humans to editor-surveyor
    declaring that unless one’s righteousness exceeded the false righteousness of the Pharisees, one had no chance at seeing the kingdom.

    You seem to take this in the sense of "I must perform more good works than the Pharisees." Christ understood it in this way:

    "The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted." (Luk 18:11-14)

    The contrast here is between the Pharisees who glory in their works, in their tithes, their refusal to commit adultery, and their loyalty to the Jewish people, and with the Publican, a tax collector, who does not even think Himself worthy enough to look up to heaven when he prays, but smotes his breast, symbolical of his smashing of his own pride and self-righteousness. The Publican goes down "justified" not because he performs more good works than the Pharisee, or even that his sins were less heinous, but because he recognized himself as a sinner in need of a savior. This is the essence of the Gospel, that a sinner, who cannot be justified by his works, is instead justified by his faith.

    As for your objections against Paul's verse. You have not demonstrated how we ought to understand it, but have only pointed us to look at the Gospels, as if there is something there to contradict it. Presumably, Paul's verse cannot contradict something in the Gospel. So, then, can you provide a reading of Paul, using his words, that show he does not believe that the works of the law, so far as receiving justification is concerned, are irrelevant to our salvation?

    Whoops, forgot some paragraph breaks. Here is the same post again, but easier to read:

    I'm sure China is happy to see us fixated with Russia via Ukraine. Some day we will wake up to the threat Red China has become. Just hope it doesn't take another Pearl Harbor.

    You are a Pro-Russkie troll and likely one of Russia's sleeper trolls first established in the ease up into Putin's rule, either hired from an indigenous traitor here in the West, or else you post from Moscow. You are too dedicated and too deceptive to be just a regular PaulBot. Russia has a cyberwarfare department just as big as China's, although I don't know if China has departments dedicated to trolling/influencing thousands of internet sites and news sources like the Russkies do, which has only recently been under the spotlight with the Russian-Ukrainian war. Such things as infiltration of forums has been well known among Russian dissidents for a long time since the amount of Russian-government trolls on Russian websites is about a billion times worse.

    China and Russia are allies who operate under a "scissors" strategy. That is, they appear to be rivals, taking opposite positions, but when they slice, they win. From KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn:

    "Mutual criticism between two parties should be seen as a new way of supporting the credibility of the disinformation each is trying to spread about itself. For example, Chinese criticism of Soviet and Yugoslav revisionism, the decay of ideology, and the restoration of capitalism in the Soviet Union helped to build up the illusion that Khrushchev was truly moderate and that Tito was truly independent. The Soviet and Chinese lines on different issues should be seen as the left and right legs of a man, or better still, as the two blades of a pair of scissors, each enhancing the other's capacity to cut." (Golitsyn, New Lies for Old pg 181)

    More:

    "Duality in Sino-Soviet polemics is used to mask the nature of the goals and the degree of coordination in the communist effort to achieve them. The feigned disunity of the communist world promotes real disunity in the noncommunist world. Each blade of the communist pair of scissors makes the other more effective. The militancy of one nation helps the activist detente diplomacy of the other. Mutual charges of hegemonism help to create the right climate for one or the other to negotiate agreements with the West. False alignments, formed with third parties by each side against the other, make it easier to achieve specific communist goals, such as the acquisition of advanced technology or the negotiation of arms control agreements or communist penetration of the Arab and African states. In Western eyes the military, political, economic, and ideological threat from world communism appears diminished. In consequence Western determination to resist the advance of communism is undermined. At a later stage the communist strategists are left with the option of terminating the split and adopting the strategy of "one clenched fist."" (Ibid, p. 182)

    Communism works through false fronts, deception, controlling the opposition, and subversion from within. China's retreat into a corrupt version of Capitalism should be understood in this sense, as is Russia's alleged retreat into capitalism, which is actually illusory. In Russia, the economy is still controlled by "former" KGB agents who answer to invisible rules and codes of conduct. Those who break the rules are quickly dispossessed of their wealth (which really belongs to the underground Soviet system), and it is simply gobbled up by other goons of the "former" Soviet regime. It is like the Mafia, only a lot more advanced and deadly. All appearances to the contrary are part of their design.

    Have you seen a video at link? It has clocked exactly 5000 ft higher than ‘official’ max ceiling.

    This is possible only by 1) Having no armaments (otherwise its altitude is 16,000 feet max, not 23,000) 2) Using inertia by accelerating quickly upward to bring you over your maximum ceiling height, but only for a short period of time. Atmospheric conditions can also have an effect. You also have the added problem that the SU-25 can only achieve half the speed of the 777, and is designed for ground attack, not going up to 33,000 feet on level with a 777, tracking it, and shooting it down.

    Maybe if John McCain didn’t “tinker” with Ukraine in the first place Crimea would still be a part of it.

    Since there was no John McCain conspiracy to create a fake protest movement, but was an actual protest movement that was reacting to Berkut-Russkies beating little old ladies in the streets, it would have made no difference.

    As for the Crimean election results. If you believe that, I have a bridge I can sell you. BTW, the Crimean Tatars and at least half the population in Crimea would be expected to oppose the annexation. Tatars make up about 15 percent of the population. Even if we just consider them alone, it would make the number of 97 percent absolutely ridiculous.

    It is becoming more and more obvious why Putin has tried to present himself as a conservative, pro church anti-gay leader. He knows it will play well with Ethnic Russians in border states who tend to be conservative

    Russkies are not conservative. Less than one percent attend their Russian Communist Churches even on Easter. It is true they talk morality, but this is the vanity of a group of people most of whom are dependent on government handouts and are heavily drugged up or are alcoholics. They are true Soviets after 5 generations of Russians killing off the very best people and promoting individuals with clear signs of delusional behavior and sadist tendencies.

    All the good Russkies are either in prison, protesting i streets against their regime, or fled to Europe or the United States a long time ago.

    This grace is habitual because it endures and persists until we forfeit it. Man can lose this sanctifying grace by freely and knowingly committing a sin involving grave matter (referred to as being subjectively guilty of a mortal sin). [cf. CCC 1856, 1859, 2000]

    Augustine on Final Preservation:

    “But of such as these [the Elect] none perishes, because of all that the Father has given Him, He will lose none. John 6:39 Whoever, therefore, is of these does not perish at all; nor was any who perishes ever of these. For which reason it is said, They went out from among us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would certainly have continued with us. 1 John 2:19”. (Augustine, Treatise on the Predestination of the Saints)

    “I assert, therefore, that the perseverance by which we persevere in Christ even to the end is the gift of God; and I call that the end by which is finished that life wherein alone there is peril of falling.” (Augustine, On the Perseverance of the Saints)

    "Will any one dare to say that this perseverance is not the gift of God, and that so great a possession as this is ours in such wise that if any one have it the apostle could not say to him, 'For what hast thou which thou hast not received?'[ 2] since he has this in such a manner as that he has not received it?" To this, indeed, we are not able to deny, that perseverance in good, progressing even to the end, is also a great gift of God; and that it exists not save it come from Him of whom it is written, "Every best gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights." (Augustine, Treatise on Rebuke and Grace, Ch. 10)

    "... the human will does not obtain grace by freedom, but obtains freedom by grace; when the feeling of delight has been imparted through. the same grace, the human will is formed to endure; it is strengthened with unconquerable fortitude; controlled by grace, it never will perish, but, if grace forsake it, it will straightway fall; by the Lord's free mercy it is converted to good, and once converted it perseveres in good; the direction of the human will toward good, and after direction its continuation in good, depend solely upon God's will, not upon any merit of man. Thus there is left to man such free will, if we please so to call it, as he elsewhere describes: that except through grace the will can neither be converted to God nor abide in God; and whatever it can do it is able to do only through grace. "(Augustine, Aurelius. Augustine's Writings on Grace and Free WIll (Kindle Locations 45-46). Monergism Books. Kindle Edition.)

    Justification presupposes man’s free act of will to accept and cooperate with this grace. God does not force this action or state on man. Human freedom is a secondary, but, essential element.

    Augustine teaches that salvation is by "man's free will," in the sense that God illuminates the heart, making it alive again, and with love irresistibly draws the sinner to salvation. In other words, God draws us willingly, but it is impossible for a blind man to be given sight and to not see the face of His God. IOW, this is not something that man can resist, nor can it be properly said to be "cooperation" in the Roman Catholic sense, that they earned it. Rather, it is by the will of God entirely, without the "willing" or "running" of man: More from Augustine on this topic here:

    “And further, should any one be inclined to boast, not indeed of his works, but of the freedom of his will, as if the first merit belonged to him, this very liberty of good action being given to him as a reward he had earned, let him listen to this same preacher of grace, when he says: “For it is God which works in you, both to will and to do of His own good pleasure;” (Php 2:13) and in another place: “So, then, it is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy.” (Rom 9:16) Now as, undoubtedly, if a man is of the age to use his reason, he cannot believe, hope, love, unless he will to do so, nor obtain the prize of the high calling of God unless he voluntarily run for it; in what sense is it not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy, except that, as it is written, “the preparation of the heart is from the Lord?” Otherwise, if it is said, “It is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy, because it is of both,” that is, both of the will of man and of the mercy of God, so that we are to understand the saying, “It is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy,” as if it meant the will of man alone is not sufficient, if the mercy of God go not with it—then it will follow that the mercy of God alone is not sufficient, if the will of man go not with it; and therefore, if we may rightly say, it is not of man that wills, but of God that shows mercy, because the will of man by itself is not enough, why may we not also rightly put it in the converse way: “It is not of God that shows mercy, but of man that wills,” because the mercy of God by itself does not suffice? Surely, if no Christian will dare to say this, “It is not of God that shows mercy, but of man that wills,” lest he should openly contradict the apostle, it follows that the true interpretation of the saying, “It is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy,” is that the whole work belongs to God, who both makes the will of man righteous, and thus prepares it for assistance, and assists it when it is prepared.” (Augustine, The Enchiridion on Faith, Hope and Love, Ch. 32)

    “And, moreover, who will be so foolish and blasphemous as to say that God cannot change the evil wills of men, whichever, whenever, and wheresoever He chooses, and direct them to what is good? But when He does this He does it of mercy; when He does it not, it is of justice that He does it not for “He has mercy on whom He will have mercy, and whom He will He hardens.” And when the apostle said this, he was illustrating the grace of God, in connection with which he had just spoken of the twins in the womb of Rebecca, who “being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of Him that calls, it was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.” And in reference to this matter he quotes another prophetic testimony: “Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” But perceiving how what he had said might affect those who could not penetrate by their understanding the depth of this grace: “What shall we say then?” he says: “Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.” For it seems unjust that, in the absence of any merit or demerit, from good or evil works, God should love the one and hate the other. Now, if the apostle had wished us to understand that there were future good works of the one, and evil works of the other, which of course God foreknew, he would never have said, not of works, but, of future works, and in that way would have solved the difficulty, or rather there would then have been no difficulty to solve. As it is, however, after answering, God forbid; that is, God forbid that there should be unrighteousness with God; he goes on to prove that there is no unrighteousness in God’s doing this, and says: “For He says to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.” “ (Augustine, The Enchiridion on Faith, Hope and Love, Chapter 98. Predestination to Eternal Life is Wholly of God’s Free Grace.)

    "We know that God's grace is not given to all men . To those to whom it is given it is given neither according to the merits of works, nor according to the merits of the will, but by free grace. To those to whom it is not given we know that it is because of God's righteous judgment that it is not given." (Augustine, Treatise On Rebuke and Grace)

    “But that world which God is in Christ reconciling unto Himself, which is saved by Christ, and has all its sins freely pardoned by Christ, has been chosen out of the world that is hostile, condemned, and defiled. For out of that mass, which has all perished in Adam, are formed the vessels of mercy, whereof that world of reconciliation is composed, that is hated by the world which belongeth to the vessels of wrath that are formed out of the same mass and fitted to destruction. Finally, after saying, “If ye were of the world, the world would love its own,” He immediately added, “But because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” And so these men were themselves also of that world, and, that they might no longer be of it, were chosen out of it, through no merit of their own, for no good works of theirs had preceded; and not by nature, which through free-will had become totally corrupted at its source: but gratuitously, that is, of actual grace. For He who chose the world out of the world, effected for Himself, instead of finding, what He should choose: for “there is a remnant saved according to the election of grace. And if by grace,” he adds, “then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace.”” (Tractates on the Gospel of John, 15:17-19)

    Gotta admit, you are a real looney toon. I hope EuromaidanPR/Svoboda is paying you well.

    I wish someone was paying me. For the cause of liberty I have to post for free, unlike you Lubyanka trolls.

    #1: Russia wouldn’t be a problem if 0bama hadn’t funded the ridiculous Maiden Revolution.

    Obama didn't fund the "ridiculous" Maiden revolution. The Maiden was funded by the sweat and blood of Ukrainians who were beaten horribly or shot to death by Russian Berkut officers.

    #2: the ukraine isn’t paying its bill to Russia for the imported natural gas that it is burning. Obviously that gas is going to be cut off eventually if no one ever pays the bills.

    Well let's see, they've been paying double the going price for ages and their economy has hit rock bottom because Russia annexed a large chunk of it and have been shooting artillery rounds into major Ukrainian cities.

    I had no idea that to be a Ukrainian patriot meant that one belonged to Right Sector. To put it in perspective, the Ukrainian parliament is composted of 450 members. Exactly one of them belongs to Right Sector.

    There is a common misconception (well, a LIE) put forward by the Russkies that Right Sector is a Nazi organization. The pictures I showed were, in fact, of Ukrainian Jews in Right Sector, of two leaders, actually. Bezler is the Chief of Communications for Right Sector and was involved from the very beginning. Chazin is a battalion commander. They even use the Star of David on their patches. Right Sector isn't just one group. It is many different right-wing groups in Ukraine that are joined up under that banner. Once of those groups, an obviously racial one, was expelled early on:

    "Founding groups included Trident (Tryzub), led by Dmytro Yarosh and Andriy Tarasenko; and the Ukrainian National Assembly–Ukrainian National Self-Defense (UNA–UNSO), a political/paramilitary organization.[5][6] Other founding groups included Patriot of Ukraine, the Social-National Assembly, White Hammer, and Carpathian Sich. White Hammer was expelled in March 2014.[7] In June 2014 one of the groups was assigned by the Interior Ministry to surveil Mariupol after it captured the city from Russian-backed insurgents.[8]"

    Right Sector is called "far right wing" because they advocate fighting Russia and second amendment type rights for every Ukrainian. Naturally, those make them very bad. By the way, the "Wolfsangel" thing is a Svoboda symbol, not Right Sector.

    Guys like him do not experience anything like “shame.” It’s a foreign concept to bootlicking supporters of the “former” Soviet regime in Moscow.
