One of the most profound distinctions (so-called 'polarities') forced upon us by these times, is the stark choice between each person making his own inner-discernments about the truth of reality; or else a willing and willed embrace of what we know to be a world of lies and manipulations, emanating from the institutions of The Global Establishment.
There is really very little, and diminishing, middle ground between my-self and the World Government. There used to be many more-or-less independent and autonomous institutions - such as churches, professions, trades unions, city and regional government, and many and various media... all kinds of 'sources of evaluation' from groups who were substantially separate from each other, and from the increasingly-unified and mandatory narrative of today.
But all of these middle institutions ('civil society') - which used to stand between the individual and the 'official world' - have either been destroyed or assimilated by the single, global, bureaucratic-media complex.
The one-permitted system of evaluation today is leftist, atheist-materialist in its assumptions - and more-and-more obviously evil overall and by intent. Hence the compulsory 'truth' is based-on lies; and dishonest and manipulative in all its significant operations.
So - here we are. Each of us confronted by the stark choice of believing in our own, personal, individual and perhaps unique evaluations; or else yielding (by choice) to a world of lies and evil.
It used to be assumed that anyone who was in a minority of one concerning what he believed was 'by definition' insane. Now - when the whole world has gone mad and will die to retain its delusions - the only sane people are in a minority of one.
Everyone has this choice to make, and everyone in practice has-made their choice. Do you stand alone as a unit of discernment?
Or do you voluntarily (because it is always a choice) surrender to and believe - that is live-by the discernments of - the world: when this ruled is ruled by Satan; and all who conform to worldly-evaluations are in service of evil?
To refuse individual discernment in 2021 is to make the choice of damnation.
To be in the situation of 'me against the world' is certainly Not 'to be a Christian'; but it has become the necessary prerequisite.
