Self-Restraint is Nine-Tenth of Worship
September 15, 2013
If the Ten Commandments are any indication,
nine-tenth of worshiping God depends on
what we won't do.

The Illuminati Satanists spin self-restraint as "repression," that causes "neurosis." They champion "sexual liberation" i.e. promiscuity and debauchery.

Have you noticed that nine of the Ten Commandments are proscriptions?
They tell us what we shalt NOT do.
Surely this is an important clue. We worship God by disciplining and controlling our lower nature.
The only affirmative Commandment is to "honor your father and mother." The other nine are concerned with obeying, i.e. self-discipline:
You shall have no other Gods; not make idols; not take His name in vain; not work on the Sabbath; not commit murder; not commit adultery; not steal; not bear false witness (lie) and finally, not covet your neighbor's wife or possessions.
It's important to realize that both religion and civilization are based on a dualistic view of man, as matter and spirit. Man is seen as a wild animal (matter) who contains a spark of the Divine, his soul (spirit.)
Our souls comprehend and crave God, who is perfection. ("Be ye therefore perfect as your Father who art in heaven is perfect." Mathew 5:48)
Our souls can distinguish between good and evil, truth and lie, beauty and ugliness, love and hate.
Our souls (higher self) are required to hold our primitive instincts (lower self) in check. This is what defines us as human.
Gradually, the satanist (Illuminati) bankers have erased this distinction. They have made "God" a dirty word, which cannot be mentioned in polite company. They deny that we have a soul and define man in terms of our animal appetites and whims, no matter how perverse or degrading. These are also the assumptions of naturalism - man is an animal without a Divine soul.
"Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law," is the Satanist credo.
They call self-restraint "repression," causing "neurosis." They champion "liberation" i.e. debauchery.
With the decline of religion, the only thing to restrain the primitive drives are social norms (laws.) But with Satanists in control, social mores are changing, and things which were forbidden are now permissible.
Satanists invert good and evil. In modern society, man's lower nature is glorified and held up for emulation.
THE SPIRITUAL WAR
The mass media is the instrument for our induction into Satanism. What is considered edgy and courageous is not confronting the perpetrators of 9-11 but "adults" mentioning embarrassing toilet accidents in public.
I was channel surfing recently when I saw talk-show host Chelsea Lately and her guests discussing incidents when they felt like vomiting from other peoples' farts.
Every city has a give-away entertainment paper, and every paper has a sex-advice column specializing in airing the obscene and disgusting in public. In Winnipeg where I live, this paper ("Uptown") is owned by the Winnipeg Free Press, supposedly a family newspaper. One recent question involved a sex partner who defecated on the sheets. Another was from a woman whose vagina emitted a foul stench.
A new TV commercial for Alexander Keith beer: Rude man gives his girlfriend a long lascivious kiss before introducing her to a friend, who also locks lips with her. Edgy! As Nike says, Just do it!
I could fill a column with examples of this race-to-the-bottom, social engineering designed to make us indulge our every impulse, and broadcast our every toilet accident.
Instead of aspiring for what is truly beautiful and refined, modern culture aspires to degrade humanity. We have no culture because culture is based on aspiring to genuine ideals, not denying them.
Don't kid yourself. This is how Satanism works. It is deliberate.
We think of enslavement in terms of limitations to our freedom, repressive laws, surveillance and concentration camps.
Satanists use our primitive instincts to enchain us. For example, by making sex and romance the Holy Grail, and then shoving sex in our faces 24-7, they turn us into sniveling sex-addicts.
If an alien visited this planet, he would report that humanity's number one preoccupation was "who is doing whom?" and can people watch?
And if it isn't sex, it's money. We dance to this tune daily, dedicating our lives to protecting our little stash.
How do we protect and liberate our souls?
Recognize that society has been subverted by Satanists devoted to degrading us to the level of domestic animals.
Climb our personal Mount Sinai and write our personal "Commandments."
These are our principles. Things we will not do. This way we will recognize and reject temptation immediately instead of wrestling with it.
We feel powerless but a spiritual war can be won with spiritual weapons. We can defeat Satan by what we won't do.
