Avalanches never develop instantly. They typically are slow starting. A pebble here and pebble there. Pebbles become small stones, small stones become middling rocks, middling rocks become boulders and eventually the whole hillside is cascading downward and melting every bit of foliage in its path.
In the last twenty years I’ve lived through the collapse of the hillside. I lived to see the pebbles become unfixed and moving. Five years before I was born Brown vs. the Board of Education rattled the pebbles in the American social order. Ten years later (I’m now five years old) the Civil Rights Act passes, followed the next year by the Voting Rights act and the Hart Celler Immigration Act and the SCOTUS Griswold vs. Connecticut decision. Each and all contributing to the coming social order avalanche that is now in the “destroy everything in its path phase.” When I was fourteen Roe v. Wade was passed which was promissory that one day there would be a “Lawrence vs. Texas” which in turn guaranteed that one day there would be a “Obergefell vs. Hodges.” Pebbles to stone to rocks to boulders. Avalanche.
All of this and so much more (No fault divorce, the necessity of two incomes thanks to the feminist movement, mattachine, Kinsey, Hefner, The Authoritarian Personality, Cultural Marxism, etc.) have moved the earth from under the feet of Americans in Avalanche. The social order which had been loosely based upon a Christian heritage moved from under our feet in avalanche.
And now in 2020 I find myself waking up to view video of Psalm Singers in Moscow, Idaho being cuffed for the crime of not wearing a mask while Psalm singing. We have gone from the crime to drinking while driving to the crime of not masking while singing. As if that wasn’t enough, just a wee bit later I’m privy, by video, to watch a young lady in Ohio being cuffed for attending an outside football game in which her son was playing being tasered and manhandled by a Cop for the crime of not wearing a mask. More than that I am daily bombarded by “News Stories” that are a thin tissues of lies intended to outrage the American Public. Vice is covered up and reported as virtue. Virtue is denigrated as vice.
The avalanche is moving fast and furious. We are living in full blow anarcho-tyranny social order which has replaced the moderate Christian social order in which I was raised. Anarcho-tyranny is the idea that the virtuous law-abiding citizen is tyrannized by the State while the criminal class are allowed to engage in criminal anarchy with no reprisal against them. How can anyone doubt this analysis?
Louisville burns w/ only a comparative handful arrested Meanwhile in Moscow Idaho they are cuffing people for singing Psalms and not social distancing.
Example # 2
No arrests for throwing Molotov cocktails in Portland, Or. Meanwhile a woman at a sparsely attended kiddie football game is cuffed for not wearing a mask.
Criminals like Breonna Taylor, Jacob Flake, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown are treated like departed saints while Kyle Rittenhouse, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, Darren Wilson, and Nicholas Sandmann — men and women who merely defended themselves from bodily harm or smiled inappropriately are publicly crucified.
Churches are restricted from meeting in many states but the “peaceful protests” (aka — riots) are encouraged in many cities and states around the Country.
This is social order madness and evidence that we are living in a social order avalanche.
In California the State has fined a previously healthy Church into impoverishment and is working on shutting down John MacArthur’s large Baptist Church. All this while the pot shops and liquor stores remain open.
Even in what had been known previously as conservative Churches in conservative denominations are feeding the avalanche. The Gospel Coalition is a thoroughly Cultural Marxist organization that prints the occasional orthodox piece for cover. Mark Dever’s 9Marks might as well be called 9Marx. R2K, by demanding that Church’s not engage culture by the standards of a full orbed Christianity creates a vacuum in Churches that is filled by cultural Marxism. Seminaries employ Cultural Marxists hiding under a very thin Christian veneer. The Southern Baptists embrace Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality as legitimate analytical tools by which our culture can be analyzed. The PCA is playing with Revoice. The OPC is playing with Feminism. Avalanche as far as the eyes can see and all of this is just the last few years.
I’ve gotten to the point that I’m leery of getting up in the morning for fear of reading of the next movement in our perpetual avalanche.
For those of us who see all this … for those of us who understand that where this is tending is towards the genocide of white people for the crime of historic association with Jesus Christ as a people and all Biblical Christians regardless of race, this is a time where all we can do is hold on to God’s Word which reminds us that
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
We just have to resolve ourselves that these are the times God has predestined us for and harden ourselves to being faithful in times of avalanche.
Allow me to say this in ending… this is a time to know the reason for the hope that lies within us. This is the age of the apologist. We need to stalwartly defend our convictions and viciously attack the convictions of the enemy. We need to realize that we are not going to be given any quarter and we need to steel ourselves against giving any quarter. The Black Flag has been raised against Christ and Christianity and we Christians need to give a good account of our loyalty to Christ by meeting the enemy by being valiant.
