Into the Multiverse

Recently, I spoke at a conference in Dallas, TX called "Hear the Watchmen." At the conference, I spoke about something called a Christian Cannibal. The people running the conference, who I consider dear friends, allowed me to post the video on my YouTube channel. I explained it in a recent Facebook post: "A big thank you goes out to Mike Kerr, Jeannie Moore, and everybody at Hear the Watchmen! Please subscribe and share this video around. We have all had to deal with this in our personal lives and this is a message a lot of people need to hear. Help me make this go viral!" I am asking all of you the same thing today. Help me make this message go viral. It is not for me or my own personal glory, but it is because Christians around the world are suffering this scourge of the internet. Some might be saved from it. Some might be too far gone. However, we should want to give everyone every chance possible to understand the problem and to learn how to deal with it in their own hearts.  I will also be speaking on The Hagmann and Hagmann Report tonight (Friday, June 9th, 2017) about this vitally important issue. Click on the link below to catch the show: https://www.hagmannreport.com/show-archives/we-must-actively-attack-pedogate-dark-journalist-the-honey-bee-and-josh-peck/ You might be wondering why this issue should be important to you personally. Why should you care enough to act and share this video? It is because this is an issue affecting everyone. It even affected me years ago. In fact, I have a confession. Years ago (long before coming to work at SkyWatchTV) I was an internet troll. Back then that term wasn’t developed yet, but I was one of them. I wouldn’t have thought of myself that way, of course. To me, I was practicing tough love on ignorant Christians who should have known better about their theology. After all, if there wasn’t all of these wrong ideas, I wouldn’t have to spend so much time and frustration on Facebook, right?  Well, that’s how I would justify it to myself, at least. Of course, as I know now thanks to God, I was horribly wrong. My behaviors were rooted in pride and not at all in scripture (even though I was extremely good at twisting scripture to suit my emotional needs). Not only that, but my judgment of others was way off. If I came across a person online who didn’t share my personal interpretations of scripture or theology, I would come to the conclusion they must not be a real Christian. Or, if they were, they certainly weren’t walking closely with the Lord. After all, if they were, they would share the same rapture belief, view on extra-biblical books, and interpretation of end-times prophecy as me.  I also made sure to let them know it. I would spend countless hours in threads hundreds of comments long just to argue my point. Not pleasantly and politely inform others of my beliefs while giving validation to theirs, mind you. I’m talking outright fighting tooth and nail to bust my opponent’s opinions down while elevating mine as high as scripture itself. It is amazing, looking back, not only how obviously wrong I was in my approach, but how I totally didn’t see it. I was the one who wasn’t walking closely with the Lord. I was only walking closely with myself: my beliefs, my opinions, and my interpretations held priority over everything else. Later, after God had prepared my heart for it, He brought various people through my life who (over the course of years) unknowingly helped me confront my pride issue and humble myself to the Lord. This, of course, came at a cost. I had to give up the idea that I had all the answers. I had to give up the idea that my walk with God was fine how it was. I had to totally abolish the idea that I was not a prideful person. A new path had been set before me.  Over the course of time and a lot of hard work, God showed me how I was actually hurting myself and others with the way I chose to behave online. I realized I wasn’t viewing people online as real people, but more as random faceless names who had no bearing on the real world through my own perception. I treated people online totally different than how I treated people in real life. If someone spoke to me in person, for the most part they were left with the impression of me as a very kind and polite individual. I was not. However, I was really good at hiding it because in the real world, unlike the internet (or so I thought), there is accountability. If things get heated in person, you’re in it until it comes to some sort of resolution. Online, however, you always have the option of blocking someone, turning off the computer, or worse yet, continuing in increasingly heated arguments until the other person gives up. The obvious problem: I was not living by the Word. The Bible, believe it or not, has a lot to say about loving one another despite petty differences. The things I used to be upset abut in other people were not salvation issue; yet I learned, even if they were, it still would not excuse my behavior. We are absolutely commanded to operate out of love: love for God and love for one another. I used to think I was operating out of love for God. If I didn’t love Him, I wouldn’t defend Him so fervently, right? Only I was operating from my definition of love, not the Bible’s. 1 John 4:20-21 states: 20 If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. 21 And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother. Going along with that, Galatians 5:13-15 states: 13 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. 14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 15 But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another. The easy way out of this, of course (at least it would seem), is to assume because it says “brother”, we can treat who we consider non-brothers in Christ however we want. We would be mistaken. Luke 6:27-31 states: 27 “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. 29 To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. 31 And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them. Romans 12:14-21 states: 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. 17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” 20 To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Overcome evil with good. This immediately removes us from any thinking that just because someone is doing evil, it gives us the right to bust them down for it. Absolutely not. We are to show them love like they’ve never seen before. Of course, when I was trolling, I should have known better. I had even read these passages. However, I breezed past them and didn’t think about how to apply this into my life, especially online.  The main reason I bring all of this up is not only for a confessional. The same behaviors God rooted out of me, I see running rampant online in many Christian circles. Even more, it is troublesome because these people are self-professing followers of Jesus Christ and I have no reason to believe they aren’t saved, meaning they are brothers and sisters in Christ and I love them. The thing is, I believe most people are doing these kinds of things online purely out of ignorance. For some reason or another, just like me years ago, they don’t know better. I also believe they represent the minority of Christians at this point. However, they also have the loudest voice. Most Christians who do not wish to behave this way will bow out of the conversation, go to another page, block, delete, and never think of the trolls again. In many cases this is absolutely what should be done, but at the same time the majority of Christians need to, in a sense “troll” the haters. We need to write articles about brotherly love, share bible verses, teach lessons, and most importantly, we ourselves need to do all of this out of love and not out of condemnation.  We need to get to a point where we can honestly say to God we are sharing these things purely out of love for the other person and absolutely not out of love of being right. We are to love one another. We are to be the helpful big brother or sister assisting their younger siblings in the best ways to behave. We are not to be know-it-all tattlers who’s only motivation is to prove to Dad how right we are by showing how wrong our brother and sisters are. No good earthly father would put up with that, and our Heavenly Father doesn’t appreciate it either.  It’s hard to love, it really is. True love, not just the appearance of it, is a learned skill perfected by practice. It’s not easy. However, it’s what our Father expects from us. Luke 6:32-36 states: 32 “If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. 35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. 36 Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. Romans 12:9-13 states: 9 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit,[a] serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13 Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. We are not called to be easily offended. We live in a nation, culture, and even world full of easily offended people. If you say the wrong thing or have the wrong idea, suddenly the other person is being persecuted and you are the abuser. Scripture teaches against this mentality. 1 Corinthians 4:12-13 states: 12 and we labor, working with our own hands. When reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure; 13 when slandered, we entreat. We have become, and are still, like the scum of the world, the refuse of all things. To end with, we must all (myself included) remember, in all things, that love is absolutely most important. 1 Corinthians 13:1-8a states: 1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. 4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never ends.  Believe it or not, only 17 percent of Christians who consider their faith important and attend church regularly actually have a biblical worldview, according to Barna’s research. Shocking as that is on the surface, it really isn’t too surprising once we consider all the variables. For example, we live in a totally connected world. The internet has made it possible for all people of all kinds to share their ideas. This would be a great thing if people valued personal discernment as much as sharing their own ideas. Unfortunately, this is not the case. One doesn’t even have to be a great writer to convince anyone of anything; all one needs is an interesting idea that appeals to a person’s sense of self-worth and importance.  Generally, people don’t examine themselves to know why certain theories are interesting while others aren’t. People don’t normally discern their own motivations. Personally, I believe this is one of the most important things we can do as a follower of Jesus Christ. Scripture tells us the heart is “deceitful above all things.” We simply cannot trust our own emotions, feelings, or perceptions of things. Therefore, we should be relying on facts rather than emotion. Instead of how a theory makes us feel, we should see if it holds up to scrutiny against fact-based information.  At the crux of many theories that seem to cause division in the Church is the personal feeling of possessing secret and special knowledge. There are many examples of this stem ming back to ancient gnosticism and even earlier. It is a very human compulsion and not rooted in the basic teachings of Christianity. According to scripture, the God of the Bible gives truth freely to all who seek it and are willing to learn. It is usually the people who are stubborn and set in their ways who remain ignorant to the truth, such as the Pharisees in Jesus’ day. Conversely, the people who are too open to new ideas and are void of discernment also remain ignorant to the truth, such as the Gnostics from around the same time period. The trick is to be right in the middle; open to hearing out ideas yet discerning enough to know how to test them against scripture.  It is easy for a new and interesting idea to appeal to our pride as human beings. Most of us would feel special, perhaps even a sense of superiority, if we knew something about reality that most people do not. There are even those throughout time who have let the Gospel itself become an engine for personal pride. However, according to scripture, we are to put love above all else. We are to share truth, lovingly and patiently, while also realizing we are not going to have all the answers. We need to be able to identify the difference between the truth and our personal interpretation of truth’ between observation and interpretation. If we fail in these regards, we are in danger of dividing the body of Christ. We are in danger of becoming Divisionist Christians. Divisionist Christianity (dividing the Church based on differing opinions) is one step away from Cannibal Christianity (emotionally abusing each other to feed our own egos), which is one more step from all-out war between Christians. This is why we have to set emotions aside and rely on facts. We also have to be able to identify the difference between salvation and non-salvation matters.  Personally, I find myself in the realm of Bible prophecy. I have always found it interesting. I love it. However, what is most exciting to me is thinking about the different ways things can play out. What exactly is the mark of the beast? An RFID chip? A piece of transhumanist technology? A splice of nephilim genes? Something else entirely? No one can say for absolute sure, but we are given enough information to at least know what kinds of things to stay away from and to prepare for what is ahead. In the meantime, how should we as Christians be treating each other in light of differences in interpretation? Is properly identifying the mark of the beast a salvation issue?  Some would say yes. Personally, I would say not yet. It could become a salvation issue when it is fully implemented. However, for now, we are not there yet. We are allowed to have difference in opinions. What we are not allowed to do, however, is divide over these issues. The mark of the beast is only one of many, many examples that could be given. Where the extremists in these groups based on alternate interpretations of scripture fail is to remind each other love must come first. Paul, John, and other stated so emphatically all throughout the New Testament. Unfortunately, we live in a world where a group is identified by its extremists. Most often, the extremists are the minority, yet they have the loudest voice. The reason is because the majority of Christians are polite, wanting not to offend, and most times bow out of a conversation or even an entire topic altogether so as to not contribute to arguing and bickering. This, of course, gives 100% of the speaking floor to the extremists.  I have found myself in the politeness camp, and I do still believe we should be respectful and courteous to others. However, we need to correctly focus how we actually go about doing that. I don’t think we can remain silent anymore. This doesn’t mean we need to get into arguments, of course. We also should be very familiar with the block and delete commands throughout all of social media. However, I believe there is a good medium of engagement that could give us, the majority, our voice back while also allowing us to put love first. It is all based on facts.  Arguments are purely emotional. One person decides to become personally offended by another person’s opposing view, so they attack on a personal level. This is usually done through a “get them before they can get me” attitude. I used to be like this, years ago. For me, it was based solely on my own pride and insecurity. I have to imagine it is the same for others who choose to behave this way. The best way to combat this is to present facts void of emotion. If there is any emotion present at all, it must be love. We must also realize we do not have a personal responsibility to convince someone of something or change someone’s mind. We do have a responsibility to teach the truth, of course, but if another person doesn’t agree, they are allowed to make that choice. This even goes with the preaching of the Gospel; if we preach Jesus Christ to someone and they don’t accept Him, that is their choice. We can pray for them and move on, but to try to force it on them would totally defeat the purpose. If it is this way for the Gospel, surely it is the same for the timing of the rapture, the shape of the Earth, or if time-traveling demons are changing our Bibles.  Speaking of which, those examples bring up another point: we need to learn how to remove people from our circles if they are not acting Christian or are sowing confusion and discord throughout our brethren. There is a time to disassociate. There is a time to remove the leaven. 99% of the time, this is due to a person’s attitude; very rarely does it have to do with the person’s actual beliefs. For example, I don’t see anywhere in scripture that states it makes any difference if a person wants to believe the Earth is flat or a sphere. However, how that person acts based on his or her personal beliefs, that does matter. A lot. If a person is putting love first, the whole flat earth thing will come secondary to all the important things we should be focusing on as Christians. That person will understand his or her personal view is not the only one out there and that scripture can be interpreted in different ways to different people. For example, I released a video on my YouTube channel showing all of the “flat earth” verses in the Bible could just as easily be describing extra spatial dimensions. Quantum physics is my interest, so you’ll likely get a physics answer from me. Ask an evolutionist, you’ll get an evolutionist answer. Ask a pagan, a pagan answer. A flat-earth believer, a flat earth answer. Scripture can be interpreted differently to different people, which is why it is vitally important to learn discernment over these issues.  This brings us back to the first point at the beginning of this article. Only 17 percent of Christians have an actual biblical worldview. The reason is because the internet and social media has provided us access to every view, opinion, feeling, emotion, thought, interpretation, and crazy idea in existence. More importantly, it is because Christians are finding it easy to accept anything they read because it feels right. It is easy to quote a Bible verse and let it support an original theory. Instead, we should be allowing the Bible to define our theories.  Going back to the quantum physics stuff; anyone who knows me knows it is an interest of mine. In fact, it is a great interest; a passion. Yet, it is by far not the most important thing for me to focus on as a Christian. Personally, I can read the Bible and see quantum physics all over it, as I have written about in my books, articles, and talk about on my show Into the Multiverse. However, I am no stranger to the idea that not everyone else will see scripture that way. Most people won’t, in fact. This absolutely does not put me above anyone else. In fact, it is incredibly humbling as I am called to serve, therefore I feel it is my duty as a follower of Jesus Christ to put all of you above myself. This means, among many other things, thinking of ways to explain my line of thinking in a way anyone can understand, but also allowing people the right to disagree with me without allowing myself to contribute to unnecessary division. People are free to disagree. That does not afford me the right to be unloving and disrespectful, even if someone is rude to me first. The same goes for all Christians. As important as quantum physics is to me personally, learning to love is far more important and needed in the Church, now more than ever. I feel a real calling to talk, write, and teach principles of love, even in light of our current social media culture. Facebook and YouTube to not exempt us from the basic, foundational principles of what it means to be a Christian. We are still required to love each other and love God, not either or. We are still required to be servants to one another, not force others to serve our own egos by bullying them into agreeing with us. We are still required to be God’s imagers across the Earth, regardless what shape it is or how we feel about it. The enemy has infiltrated our defenses. It is time for us to band together, reclaim our territory, and love one another even more than our own lives.  Here is the description to the video: http://SharpeningReport.com PLEASE SUBSCRIBE AND SHARE!
