The wise commentator on police use of force, Lebron James, got me thinking: almost nothing is scarier than when a celebrity or wealthy person describes the greatest country on earth as being on a fast take to Nazi Germany then bows at the feet of Communist China. If they can play this kind of mental gymnastics to justify selling their souls to evil while trying to burn down the greatest country on earth, what wouldn’t they do for their own self-interests?
As I’ve talked about on earlier Pilgrim’s Odyssey podcasts, we all are complicit in a way to the rise of Red China. We buy their goods, we encourage their slave labor, we elect politicians who get fat off of their lobbyists and contributions.
We are reminded by the good book often on what happens when you sell your soul for riches:
Matthew 16:26 - For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?
Hebrews 13:5 - Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.
Matthew 6:24 - No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
What happens when your master is China? You eventually love that master and hate those who stand against it. Now look at what you buy on Amazon, the things that fill your home. Who is your master? Or maybe it is food, or technology, or TV, or the Internet, consider what you love? What is your precious? And what should it be?
