The fire of God divides.

This Sunday morning I’m stealing the introduction from Brian. He’s writing about George Will, whose career has been in conservative think tanks, talking about voting Democrat in the next election because Trump is a womanizing rube. He is not polite. He causes conflict. He would rather be defeated in dignity.

Will does not understand that the enemy is converged. It is not our defeat they want, but our destruction. They hate us and they want us dead. Those of us who have to interface with the current institutions, who so carefully signal their progressive virtues, know better.

There is division. Whenever the fire of God lands, there is division.

I’ll spare you the tedious particulars. As you’d imagine, Will’s “I’ll take my ball and go home!” pouting fit could’ve been written by a bot that’s been fed a steady diet of Commentary Magazine articles, Cato Institute papers, and Glenn Beck monologues.

Will even couches his call to surrender in cynical rhetoric invoking the manufactured “family separation crisis” that’s a transparent as Reynolds wrap. It’s all there: inside baseball Constitution references, paeans to losing with honor, and appeals to nebulous “principles” that boil down to letting increasingly feral Dems retake the reins of power and enact their most paranoid revenge fantasies.

Here’s a safety tip: If anyone seriously suggests that the Left can ever again be allowed near the levers of power after the mainstream media has spent almost two years whipping them into a frothing psychotic rage with fake news claiming the election was illegitimate, he hates you and should be mocked into oblivion.

Especially effete, spergy atheists all too eager to sell future generations of Americans down the river to protect their ivory tower sinecures.

Attention, George Will: You are not one of us. You are a fake American. You have to go back.

The George Wills of this world think Christ was gentle, meek and mild, and that he hated conflict. Wrong. The gospel has always bought conflict, as surely as those who hate the Spirit of God try to destroy those whom God has chosen. For those who reject God, Saul should be a warning, for when the Spirit left him he went mad, and his line was destroyed.

It is indeed a terrible thing to be accountable for a nation. No one should want to lead: let God instead draft a King, and let the people pray for his soul.

Luke 12:49-56

49“I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed! 51Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division! 52From now on five in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three; 53they will be divided: father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

54He also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you immediately say, ‘It is going to rain’; and so it happens. 55And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘There will be scorching heat’; and it happens. 56You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?

1 Samuel 17:57-18:5, 10-16

17:57On David’s return from killing the Philistine, Abner took him and brought him before Saul, with the head of the Philistine in his hand. 58Saul said to him, “Whose son are you, young man?” And David answered, “I am the son of your servant Jesse the Bethlehemite.”

18:1When David had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was bound to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. 2Saul took him that day and would not let him return to his father’s house. 3Then Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he loved him as his own soul. 4Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that he was wearing, and gave it to David, and his armor, and even his sword and his bow and his belt. 5David went out and was successful wherever Saul sent him; as a result, Saul set him over the army. And all the people, even the servants of Saul, approved.

10The next day an evil spirit from God rushed upon Saul, and he raved within his house, while David was playing the lyre, as he did day by day. Saul had his spear in his hand; 11and Saul threw the spear, for he thought, “I will pin David to the wall.” But David eluded him twice.

12Saul was afraid of David, because the Lord was with him but had departed from Saul. 13So Saul removed him from his presence, and made him a commander of a thousand; and David marched out and came in, leading the army. 14David had success in all his undertakings; for the Lord was with him. 15When Saul saw that he had great success, he stood in awe of him. 16But all Israel and Judah loved David; for it was he who marched out and came in leading them.

The elite of this time is akin to Saul. They are doomed to destruction. They want uniformity, convergence, and call that peace.

But they are at war with truth, and truth is its own defense. Eventually, the people stop listening, and call the elite liars. For within the nature of all men is a love of beauty and truth, and a wish for honour. We can pick fat shaming, postmodern narrative, and virtue signals for the lies that they are.

The anger that the believers face, and the attacks, are signals that the time is short.

This elite will fall. Come out from them. for the sake of your families, and the sake of your soul.
