Playing the Fear Card Again

The leftists of the world have always bombarded the people of the world with warnings of impending doom and destruction. This weekend, another left wing warning was issued, this time by Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the British Labour Party. He warned in a speech, that the nations of the world had "fewer than fifty days" to reach an agreement on how to save our planet from the devastating effects of “man-made climate change”. According to Brown, if the nations fail to do so, the resulting impact of our human civilization upon the Earth will be “greater than the impact of both world wars and the Great Depression combined”.

And: 50 days till the end of the world!

Give me a break! What is up with all this fear mongering?
How much more ridiculous can liberal claims get?

I guess I am not really surprised. I mean this kind of foolish proclamation is not something new. In fact scare tactics like the supposedly sad state of our medical care systems, and the “global warming hoax” the PM is using, have been utilized by leftist for as long as I can remember. And I have a pretty good memory. They throw the fear card on the table whenever they want to make a power grab. And they always want to make a power grab.

They do so because if they can keep the people afraid, they will be more easily convinced to allow, and in fact likely to demand, that something, anything, be done to remove the cause of the fear. In theory, this enables liberals to do virtually anything they want to do, under the guise of course, of dealing with the cause of the people’s fear. And it won’t matter how unnecessary or, as is more commonly true, harmful what the liberals intend to do will probably be in the long run. Liberals have learned all too well that fear is a wild card that can and should enable them to play their hand boldly; and by doing so, steal our country and our freedoms from us, with a minimum of resistance.

However, the theory isn't perfect, and the liberals do face some very real problems that they have never really been able to overcome when playing their fear cards. What are those problems? They are the Christians who actually know and believe the word of GOD. You see, Biblically literate Christians understand something that liberals are incapable of clearly seeing, let alone understanding. And just what is it that these Christians understanding, that liberals do not and cannot understand? Simply this…

We know that fear is the opposite of faith, and we know that GOD is with us always, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:20). Therefore we really do not have anything to fear. We also know that human beings, and the things that human beings do, or do not do, are not the final determiner of what will and will not happen on this planet, especially not when, or how this world will come to its eventual end.

Ultimately, the history and destiny of this planet rests sole in the hands of our Father GOD. HE and HE alone can and will decide what is going to happen in, and too, this world. The day and the hour is not, and cannot be, known by any human being on this planet. (Matthew 25:13) Until GOD decides that it is time for it all to end, there is nothing that we mere humans can do that will destroy this planet, or the life that lives upon it. And when GOD says that this world’s time is up, there will be nothing that we can do that can or will prevent the end from happening.

So if you know people who are afraid because of something said by some liberal, who is playing one of their many fear cards, remind them who it is that is actually in charge of this world. If they do not know our LORD, then introduce them to HIM.

If they remain a bit nervous, then remind them that liberals have been WRONG about virtually, if not absolutely, every terrible thing that they have warned us would happen unless we allow them to take control of this thing, or that thing, or better yet, everything.

For example, remind them how when Jimmy (the worthless one) Carter was running for his second term in office, liberals tried using several fear cards to prevent Ronald Reagan from defeating their peanut brained pride and joy. I personally had more than one liberal tell me that “if Ronald Reagan gets elected, our cities will be torn apart by race riots” and that “a Reagan presidency would most assuredly result in a nuclear war erupting between the United States and the Soviet Union, thus bringing about the end of the world.

Fortunately the liberal fear tactics did not work and (Thank you GOD) Ronald Reagan was elected. And guess what happened, or more to the point what didn’t happen. The predicted riots in the streets did not happen. Nor did the world end in a nuclear war between the US and the USSR. Instead President Reagan, with the help of people like Margret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II, brought the evil soviet empire to the point of its inevitable and unstoppable collapse. And he accomplished it without firing a single shot.

Or for another example tell them about the predictions of such intellectual giants as actor Ted Danson. Back in 1988 Danson made an ominous proclamation. He said that we had only ten years to save our planet’s oceans or it would be too late. Hmmmm… Using a little simple arithmetic, it is quite easy to see that twenty years have passed since Mr. Danson originally made this dire warning, and as far as I can see, the oceans are still there, and they seem to still be fairly well.

The simple truth is that, as are our day to day lives, as with all things in Heaven and on Earth, the end of the world is in GOD’s hands. So ignore the fear mongers, take a deep breath, trust in GOD and praise HIM. (Psalms 46:10)

Keep it clean. If all you can do is call names or threaten retribution, It will be assumed by most readers that you are admitting that you have nothing intelligent or worth while to add to the conversation, and therefore are not worthy of paying attention too.
