The Graveyard Spin

[These were two comments that I made to a comment by a friend who said was must
get rid of obmacare, the income tax and the federal reserve.  I would suggest that Rome
wasn't built in a day and it took centuries before it fell, and here, 1500 years later, the
remnants of the Roman Empire still afflict mankind.  Edited and lengthened]

_____________, I know that, you know that, but how many people know that? Maybe
the last six years have educated some people, but there is still a great deal of work to
be done. The public image of each of these things is so crusted over with lies and false
dreams that it may very well take the vines coming to full fruit before the nature of the
vines can be known. But the battles must be fought in every generation. It took a
thousand years before the full nature of the papacy reached the masses of Western
Europe, and some still don't get it.

Obamacare may be within reach, at least to dismantle a piece at a time, but the others
may have to await another day.  Be prepared for some disappointments, but work
to plant poison pills for the sake of your children and grandchildren.

At the root of these things is a lying idolatry that must be seen and repented. It lies in

salvation must come from without himself and from beyond this world, though
manifested in history. "Set you affections on things above, where Christ sits at the right
hand of God" "Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no name under
heaven, given among men, whereby ye must be saved." Listen to Dr. Dieter's excellent
message "Beware the Graveyard Spin." .   Save yourself, by
repenting and fleeing from Babylon.  Babylon is an old whore that is beyond
