Braterman Asserts Christianity is a Dangerous Conspiracy—Sign of Things to Come?
The Conversation recently published an article that fallaciously asserts Christianity is a dangerous conspiracy theory. The article, written by Paul Braterman and republished by Snopes, argues that anyone holding a religious belief in creationism is part of a dangerous conspiracy—one the author insidiously equates with QAnon and the stolen US election, which, in turn, “led to the attack on the US Capital Building.” Sadly, history repeats itself and Braterman’s accusation represents a harbinger of apocalyptic persecution and genocide on our horizon.
Braterman’s piece is chocked full of inductive reasoning and grievous logical fallacies, including false analogies, moral equivalencies, ad hominem attacks, and appeals to authority—but very little in the way of “scientific” fact or logical argument.
In this article, I want to take a moment to focus on the broader argument (the real threat) being advanced by Braterman and—by extension—The Conversation and Snopes. Specifically, let’s examine:
- What Braterman’s Accusation Is (What He Said)
- Why It’s a Powerful Deception (What He Didn’t Say)
- How It’s a Harbinger of Things to Come (Why It Matters)
I want to be clear. This article does not seek to debate creationism or evolution, nor is it germane to only Christians.
Rather, this article seeks to provide a glimpse behind the highly seductive but equally deceptive veil that is intentionally being used to manipulate people… and to reveal where that manipulation ultimately leads.
I hope you’ll stick around and read the entire article with an open mind before formulating any conclusions.
With that said, let’s get into this…
Paul Braterman Declares Christianity a Dangerous Conspiracy
First, let’s take a look at what Paul Braterman’s accusation is—what he actually wrote.
In his article for The Conversation entitled “Why Creationism Bears All the Hallmarks of a Conspiracy Theory,” Paul Braterman asserts that creationism is a dangerous conspiracy—one that he insidiously equates with QAnon and the belief that the US election was stolen, which, in turn, “led to the attack on the US Capital Building.”
Here is a screenshot of his actual statement, with some key terminology highlighted:
First, notice the dark, emotionally charged language that Braterman utilizes to frame his argument. This is classic persuasive (opinion-based)—not expository (science-based)—writing. We’ll address this in more detail when we discuss the deceptive nature of this article.
Second, it seeks to establish a classic false analogy.
Braterman reasons that QAnon (A) and a “stolen US election” (B) are both false belief systems and, because he believes these faith-based positions “led to the attack on the US Capital Building” (C), they are dangerous (D).
Therefore, since young Earth creationism is a faith-based belief (i.e., it shares a quality with A and B), it will also lead to violent outcomes (C) is also dangerous (D).
Never mind that he is leaping to conclusions by asserting that A and B directly led to C. What really matters here is that young Earth creationism is not—in this context—synonymous with QAnon or a belief in a “stolen US election”—it is a false analogy.
Third, it is a concealed attempt to lead (manipulate) the reader towards a broader conclusion—an inductive leap in logic that is irrational and false.
Specifically, Braterman is intentionally planting the seed in the minds of his readers that because young Earth creationism is a fundamental tenet of the Christian (biblical) faith, then Christianity itself is a dangerous conspiracy that represents an existential threat to science, our democracy, and the world—a threat that must be challenged and eliminated like QAnon and Trumpers.
Braterman goes on to specifically assert that the “creationist movement is a fully fledged conspiracy theory.” This despite the fact that he acknowledges nearly half of American adults:
- Agree with the young Earth creationist claim that all humans are descended from Adam and Eve within the past 10,000 years
- Believe that living creatures are the result of “special creation” rather than evolution and shared ancestry
- Believe that Noah’s flood was worldwide and responsible for the sediments in the geologic column
Again, it doesn’t matter whether you believe in creationism or evolution—that is a moot point here. The significant and material point is that his argument is irrational and baseless. It represents a house of cards built upon logical fallacies and faulty inductive reasoning.
Braterman & The Conversation are Promulgating a Powerful Deception
Next, let’s examine the powerful deception being promulgated by Brateman and The Conversation—what they didn’t say or disclose.
We’ll start with The Conversation and then shift our focus to Brateman. We’ll then finish by identifying the true conflict.
Who is The Conversation?
The Conversation notes on its website that it “arose out of deep-seated concerns for the fading quality of our public discourse and recognition of the vital role that academic experts could play in the public arena.”
Yet, Braterman notes on his personal blog that he “trained, taught, and had an enjoyable research career as a chemist… I am a non-expert outside a relatively limited field, and outside that field I have to rely on secondary sources to keep me abreast of things.”
That doesn’t sound like the “academic rigor” eluded to in their slogan to me???
Why is The Conversation propping Braterman up as an expert on the subject when—self-admittedly—he’s not even close to an expert in any field related to evolution or creationism? Passionate about the topic and academically educated, yes. Expert in a pertinent field, no.
The Conversation goes on to note:
Information has always been essential to democracy… [but] uninformed views are amplified by social media networks that reward those who spark outrage instead of insight or thoughtful discussion.”
So, why are they publishing an article that…
- Was intentionally designed to spark outrage?
- Represented neither insightful nor thoughtful discussion?
This so-called journalism was both offensive and disingenuous—not thoughtful or informative.
Furthermore, I would contend that in an open society, individuals determine truth—whether a view is informed or uninformed—for themselves… not the thought police (a.k.a. elites, media, and so-called experts).
I applaud any effort to present information and facts pertaining to a topic. However, it is the personal responsibility of the hearers and receivers to examine that message and determine its validity. When the media—including The Conversation—transition from communicating to controlling the message… it is no longer engaged in an activity conducive to democracy or an open society.
The publishing platform goes on to proclaim:
We publish trustworthy and informative articles written by academic experts for the general public and edited by our team of journalists… Our articles share researchers’ expertise in policy, science, health, economics, education, history, ethics and most every subject studied in colleges and universities.”
How trustworthy and unbiased can they really be when their “Strategic Partner” is none other than the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and they receive nearly all of their funding from a virtual laundry list of globalist foundations—foundations that self-admittedly stand in opposition to both conservatism and the Christian worldview?
They are clearly perpetrating an intentional deception on their undiscerning readers. They hide behind the shroud of “unbiased science,” while knowingly and intentionally delivering persuasive (opinion-based) journalism that hides behind scientific terminology, while promoting a distinct faith-based worldview.
Furthermore, they label anything that stands in opposition to their worldview as uninformed myth and conspiracy.
Finally, the editors at The Conversation intentionally fail to disclose quite a few relevant facts about Mr. Braterman to their readers…
Will the Real Paul Braterman Please Stand Up?
Let’s be crystal clear… Paul Braterman is anything but an unbiased, science-based expert writing “trustworthy” articles.
He is a far-left liberal elitist, avowed Trump-hater, radical environmentalist, ardent (one could even say bitter) atheist, globalist, and vocal (one could even say obnoxious) mouthpiece for abortion and the cult of evolution—wholly dedicated to proselytizing the world (a.k.a. ignorant commoners) to the New World Order agenda and New Age transhumanist religion of wokeness.

- New World Order Emerging: Not Such a Crazy Conspiracy Theory After All!
I’m not here to beat up on Braterman. He’s a lost soul and, as such, the same Lord and Savior that loved and died for me loves and died for Paul. I pray that the Holy Spirit will open his eyes and heart to the Truth that is Jesus Christ before it’s too late for him.
However, he is actively engaged in espousing demonic views and doctrines that seek to seduce, deceive, and subvert others.
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron… And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables… by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive… For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not…” (1 Timothy 4:1-2; 2 Timothy 4:4; Ephesians 4:14; Titus 1:10-11)
As such, he has entered the public arena as a false teacher and it is important to expose him for what he really is—readers have a right to know the truth behind the deception. What they (you) chose to do with that truth is up to them (you). One can believe the lie… or recognize and embrace the Truth.
Braterman was involved in successful campaigns to “persuade” both the English and Scottish Governments to ban creationism from their classrooms.
The title of his personal blog—which itself is a complete mess—says it all: Primate’s Progress.
Here are just a few headlines from his blog:
- ‘God intended it as a disposable planet’: meet the US pastor preaching climate change denial
- Evolution, creationism, and US VP Mike Pence
- Trump praises his own, and Minnesotans’, ‘good genes’
- Noah, Ham, Canaan; evolution of a myth
- Is Creationism racist?
- Abortion: There is no ethical dilemma
And then there is his seminal work or self-proclaimed coup de grâce: How to slam dunk creationists when it comes to the theory of evolution (a real fan favorite of evolving monkeys everywhere).
It is hard to fathom how anyone could consider Braterman unbiased?
His Twitter feed is laced with dark, cult-like political rhetoric, such as this “scientific” rant that would make any highly educated academic oh so proud:
I always find it interesting how an educated person like Paul can’t see the hypocrisy in making a comment like this, while labeling similar speech by others as dangerous, hateful, and/or violence inciting?
Braterman is clearly a fan of democracy and an open society that is rich in uncensored public discourse!
(Yes, that was sanctified sarcasm.)
I would also posit that, based on his “about me” page alone, Paul thinks quite highly of himself (as most liberal academics do)—one could even say he exudes a rather extreme degree of hubris.
He notes that he “had a religious upbringing, which I rejected in my late teens after a road-from-Damascus experience, but none of this ever affected my attitude to science.”
Why do people say this?
It’s intellectually disingenuous—our core theology shapes our view of literally everything.
Paul has clearly rejected God and a case could be made—based on his writings—that he is deeply angry at the very notion of God. He does not want to be personally accountable to a supreme Deity or an absolute moral framework (law).
Thus, he views the empirical data through a highly biased lens. It must “support” his faith-based belief in evolution because the alternative—that there is a God to Whom he is personally accountable—is simply unacceptable.
In other words, he doesn’t let the data speak for itself and direct his conclusions. Rather, his emotionally-charged presuppositions speak for the data—his conclusions shape his analysis.
He claims to have no problem with ignorant religious folks “unless and until they attempt to interfere with the teaching of science, or with the public understanding of morality.”
In other words, he views himself as the self-appointed arbiter of what is permissible to be expressed in public discourse. If he disagrees with your worldview… you must be labeled, targeted, ostracized, and silenced.
And his view of morality is an entirely Luciferian “do as thou wilt” perspective. He believes that man should be free to act however one sees fit—without consequences or eternal ramifications—and clearly views “science” as a tool to attack the God of moral absolutes and those who choose to worship and serve Him.
Finally, Braterman opines that he has been “singled out for attack” by the very people he attacks in his hit-piece on The Conversation—though neither he nor the editors ever disclose that to the readers.
The truth—based on spending hours reading and analyzing his writings (hours of my life I can sadly never get back)—is that it is blatantly apparent that Paul is a classic narcissist of the highest degree. He is a legend in his own mind and derives his self-worth from attacking others like a religious zealot or crusader, as well as being (in his mind) attacked (or victimized) by others.
The hypocritical and deceptive nature of this man is epitomized by this tweet he made in December (2020):
This stands in stark contrast to everything this man has written and spoken… including his article on The Conversation, which was literally published just weeks later.
Paul either suffers from dissociative identity disorder or he is nothing but a charlatan.
Welcome to the demonic world of wokeness!
Now, I don’t have a problem with Braterman believing whatever he wants. If he wants to reject God, that’s his choice—an exercise of the free will God gave him.
However, I would point out that his own worldview is a system of belief predicated on faith-based doctrines (e.g., evolution, old earth, etc.).
As such, what I do have a problem with is attacking the faith-based beliefs of others, while disingenuously hiding one’s own guiding beliefs behind the façade of an objective, above reproach, science-based approach or methodology—one that is a complete sham.
Nothing—and I mean nothing—Braterman writes represents trustworthy, unbiased, empirically based, expository journalism—regardless of the claims by The Conversation to the contrary. It is all an emotional expression of hyperpolarized opinions—biased opinions predicated on presuppositions extrapolated from an entirely faith-based worldview.
The Deeper Deception of Braterman & The Conversation
This all brings us to the deeper deception embodied in Braterman’s article on The Conversation.
I know it is profound; however, the very same criteria that Braterman passionately argues makes creationism a conspiracy… also apply to the theory (conspiracy) of evolution.
For example, he asserts that creationism is completely hostile to science… while ignoring the obvious fact that this same “science” is equally hostile towards creationism.
By his very definition, they are both “conspiracies.”
Braterman unintentionally makes this patently obvious when he concludes his article by writing that the creationist conspiracy theory:
[I]s driven by a deep-seated power struggle within religious communities, between modernists and literalists; between those who regard scripture as coming to us through human authors, however inspired, and those who regard it as a perfect supernatural revelation.”
Exactly Paul! It is a religious and philosophical disagreement—one representing two opposing faith-based views regarding the nature of creation and its Creator.
This illuminates the fact that what we have are not “conspiracies” at all, but, rather, two opposing worldviews—one based on theism (faith in and worship of God) and the other based on naturalism, materialism, and humanism (faith in and worship of science, nature, and man).
The first group represents what he labels as “literalists” (a.k.a. orthodox Christianity) and the second represents “modernists” (a.k.a. those who reject both general revelation—or natural evidences—and specific revelation—Scripture and Jesus Christ—of the true God).
These worldviews represent two distinct and mutually exclusive systems (or spiritual kingdoms): The system of God and Satan’s counterfeit kingdom of darkness. We highly encourage you to read our article Woke—Exposing the False Gospel of Pope Francis, which discusses these two worldviews in detail.
As such, the faith-based (spiritual) system you chose to operate in will necessarily influence your perception of all aspects of your life and our world. You cannot—despite the best efforts of Braterman—separate your theology from your science—they are inextricably connected.
You can have one data set (empirical information) and yet interpret that data and extrapolate conclusions from it that are entirely different based on your presuppositions—presuppositions formed by your worldview (a.k.a. the spiritual system you have placed your faith in).
Thus, the broader—and far more sinister—deception is that Braterman doesn’t want you to see the true binary option that exists. He wants to deceive you into believing there is only one option—the satanic kingdom of darkness in which God does not exist (his worldview).
As such, any view, belief, or opinion that is “unorthodox” within this worldview (i.e., contradicts or opposes it) is a dangerous conspiracy.
Braterman wants to tie Christianity to a political movement because it represents a yin-yang construct he has embraced in his mind. However, this yin-yang system exists entirely within Satan’s counterfeit Gnostic system.
And, the second you make that connection in your own mind, you fall for the deception—the cunning lie of Lucifer himself.
Christianity is not a conspiracy theory within the kingdom of Satan. Rather, it is an entirely distinct system all together—it is the truth of God that opposes the counterfeit system of Satan that he has been peddling to humanity since the Garden.
Furthermore, as we will see in our final section, this bogus yin-yang construct explains both why Braterman believes it needs to be silenced and where the world is headed.
Braterman’s View of Christianity Is a Harbinger of Things to Come
Finally, let’s examine why Braterman’s view of Christianity as a conspiracy theory matters—namely, that it is a harbinger of things to come.
Paul’s contention is a dangerous (but powerfully effective) precedent to establish. It conflates a fundamental Christian precept—a faith-based (religious) doctrinal belief—with mere socio-political thought and expression.
By doing so, Braterman lays the groundwork for the globalist elites to then argue (with support from deceived “woke” citizens) that, if we are “rightfully” censoring and canceling (purging) socio-political expression that we deem to be dangerous, we should also consider censoring and canceling (purging) religious expression because it is equally dangerous and of the same essence.
It is an attempt to place Christianity within a false yin-yang framework—one that justifies targeting it for eradication.
Good-by to not only freedom of speech… but freedom of religion.
“Dangerous” believers in God are well on their way to becoming public enemy number one of the New World Order—an existential risk to the “greater good” of humanity that must be rooted out in the name of the god of science.
And for those who are not Christians, you might want to take notice and recognize the broader risk.
Today, it may be those pesky and uninformed Christians that are the focus of attention. However, if you are a prepper, chances are there will come a day—likely much sooner than you may believe—when you too will hold a view, opinion, or belief (or do something) that contradicts the religion of the state and which is deemed to be in opposition to the best interest of the common good.
And when (not if) that happens, you will be labeled, targeted, ostracized, and silenced as well.
We are embarking on a collective journey down a one-way road… and it doesn’t lead to the land of milk and honey, a world of rainbows and unicorns, or the proverbial promised land.
Like 1930s Germany, it inevitably leads to one thing—genocide.
In 1987, Gregory Stanton developed and published a Model of the Genocidal Process, later expanding it from 8 to 10 stages in 2012.
Presented to the U.S. Department of State and the American Anthropological Association, his Ten Stages of Genocide model has become widely used in comparative genocide studies, by teachers in schools and universities, and in museums such as the Dallas Holocaust Museum.
Genocide Watch, founded by Stanton, notes:
Genocide is a process that develops in ten stages that are predictable but not inexorable… The process is not linear. Stages may occur simultaneously. Each stage is itself a process. Logically, later stages are preceded by earlier stages. But all stages continue to operate throughout the process.”
What’s interesting is that what we see emerging in America—and around the globe—today (e.g., Braterman’s accusation against Christians) represents several stages of this scientific model—one that actually is trustworthy and unbiased:
- Classification (Stage 1): People are classified and labelled in order to create a divided and contentious “us and them” culture and environment (e.g., identity politics).
- Symbolization (Stage 2): Names or other symbols are given to the classifications, such as literalists, fundamentalists, conservatives, creationists, and “Trumpers”.
- Discrimination (Stage 3): “A dominant group uses law, custom, and political power to deny the rights of other groups… The dominant group is driven by an exclusionary ideology that would deprive less powerful groups of their rights. The ideology advocates monopolization or expansion of power by the dominant group. It legitimizes the victimization of weaker groups” (e.g., censorship and the cancel culture).
- Dehumanization (Stage 4): The dominant group depersonalizes and dehumanizes the targeted group. At this stage, hate propaganda in print, on radio, on television, and in social media “is used to vilify the victim group… Indoctrination prepares the way for incitement. The majority group is taught to regard the other group as less than human, and even alien to their society. They are indoctrinated to believe that ‘We are better off without them’.”
- Polarization (Stage 6): Extremism, fueled by the broadcast and publishing of polarizing propaganda, further drives the groups apart. Moderates—those most able to stop the progression—are intimidated, coerced, and silenced… allowing the most radical elements of the dominant group to seize increasing control of and power over the downward spiraling process.
- Preparation (Stage 7): The populace is indoctrinated to fear the victim group through an increase in inflammatory rhetoric and hate propaganda. The claim is asserted that if we don’t remove (cleanse) this evil cancer from among us, it will contaminate us and prevent us from realizing the greatness we could otherwise achieve and deserve.
While we currently find ourselves at varying degrees of progress within each of these stages, there is no doubt that the process has commenced in each.
What stages remain?
I’m glad you asked…
- Organization (Stage 5): Stanton argues that Genocide is always organized, usually by the state—with a framework that seeks to provide individuals with plausible denial of responsibility. We are now beginning to see this process begin, though it was being planned in the shadows for decades. For example, legislative measures (e.g., see our article Cuomo & NY Senate Introduce Bill A416 to Detain “High-Risk” Citizens) and operational planning (e.g., see our article Did CDC Just Signal Green Zone (Isolation) Camps are Coming to US?).
- Persecution (Stage 8): “Victims are identified and separated out… The victim group’s most basic human rights are systematically violated through extrajudicial killings, torture and forced displacement… members of victim groups may be forced to wear identifying symbols. Their property is often expropriated. Sometimes they are segregated into ghettoes, deported to concentration camps, or confined to a famine-struck region and starved. They are deliberately deprived of resources such as water or food in order to slowly destroy the group. Programs are implemented to prevent procreation through forced sterilization or abortions. Children are forcibly taken from their parents.”
- Extermination (Stage 9): “Extermination begins, and quickly becomes the mass killing legally called ‘genocide.’ It is ‘extermination’ to the killers because they do not believe their victims to be fully human… Destruction of cultural and religious property is employed to annihilate the group’s existence from history.”
This represents where we are and where we are headed. We are on the path to a global genocide ushered in by the New World Order agenda and the emerging one-world religious system that is Mystery Babylon.
We are NOT headed for some glorious new age or utopian world… we are headed for an apocalyptic period of global death and destruction known in Scripture as the seven-year Tribulation.
And the inevitable persecution and extermination won’t stop at the door of “Christians”—it will grow to include anyone and everyone that opposes the totalitarian rule of the global technocracy.
They may come for the Christian first… but, trust me, they will eventually come for you too.
Don’t succumb to normalcy bias.
If you asked the average German in 1932 if the Holocaust was possible, they would have called you crazy. And yet, within just one year, Germany would begin isolating and segregating Jews, as well as constructing of a network of concentration camps. Just 13 years later, the Holocaust—which claimed the lives of more than six million Jews—would come to an end.
It can and will happen again—only on a global scale this time. And it will happen even faster and target an even wider group of victims.
Shame on The Conversation for publishing an article under the guise of providing “trustworthy and informative” insight from an unbiased “expert” that has been vetted for “academic rigor” by an editorial team interested in promoting “quality public discourse” in support of an open, honest, and healthy “democracy”.
Instead, they have knowingly and intentionally perpetrated a fraud on their readers by publishing an amateurish opinion piece by Paul Braterman—one that represents nothing more than a biased hit-piece (dripping in logical fallacies and faulty inductive reasoning) designed to “spark outrage,” while the author masquerades as a “minister of righteousness” (cf. 2 Corinthians 11:13-15) carrying out the good and necessary work of debunking dangerous conspiracies.
However, what’s more important than Braterman’s personal issues with an absolute and sovereign God is that this sentiment—now being boldly expressed across our nation in various shapes and forms—is a harbinger of dark days in America.
Just like 1930s Germany, it foreshadows a coming period of intense persecution and genocide—only on a global scale this time.
The signs are everywhere—signs loudly proclaiming for all with ears to hear and eyes to see that the world is not getting better. Rather, it is only getting worse… much worse. And the pace of that deterioration is steadily increasing.
The world is on a collision course with the apocalypse—it has been since the Fall in the Garden.
Humanity is not on verge of ushering in a glorious new golden age. Rather, its utterly wicked, depraved, and rebellious spirit is about to be judged by God… just as it was in Noah’s day.
We are in the final moments… this is how it ends for a tragically deceived world.
To learn more, we recommend you checkout our article We’re Never Going Back to Pre-Covid World—This Is How It Ends.
We are headed for an apocalyptic period of horrific destruction and suffering—a period unlike that which has ever been seen before or ever will again.
Thankfully, you don’t have to face the coming extermination stage of the New World Order plan.
God has provided you with an escape plan—the Blessed Hope (Titus 2:13) that is the Rapture!
Even the New World Order recognizes this coming move of God and is actively programming the masses to believe false explanations for it. To learn more, we highly recommend reading our articles Alien Deception & Great Awakening—Expect More UFO Disclosures and The Great Alien Deception—Is World Being Conditioned for Rapture?
How do you participate in His escape plan?
How do you get onboard Titus 213 Airlines Flight #777?
You punch your ticket to board the escape flight out of here by placing your faith in Christ and receiving eternal life today!
There is only one true path to salvation—belief in the atoning work (shed blood) of Christ.
Today is your day of salvation—a salvation that comes but one way: by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone!
Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” (Ephesians 2:4-9)
If you haven’t already, we highly encourage you to read our articles The Ship IS Sinking… What Are YOU Going to Do as It Goes Under? and Are You Prepping to Survive or to Escape the Coming Fiery Furnace?
You may have noticed that we left one stage out. That is the tenth stage—denial.
Regarding this stage, Stanton aptly notes that “denial is the final stage that lasts throughout and always follows genocide… [The perpetrators] deny that they committed any crimes, and often blame what happened on the victims.”
Don’t fall for the lie.
Don’t participate—actively or passively—in the cunning scheme of Satan and his earthly ministers of destruction.
Don’t embrace denial.
Unlike the German people in the 1930s, we have a vivid historical record upon which to reflect—a history by which we can recognize the disturbing path we are on today… and the fact that it doesn’t end well.
