Evil Consequences from Darwin?

04/05/2009

by Ken E Murray

This year atheists, agnostics, and evolutionists are intensely celebrating Charles Darwin.

Count me out!

From the time Darwin published his “Origin of the Species” 150 years ago, there have been many evil resultant consequences.

His ideas and philosophy about evolution by the pseudo-god of “natural selection”, are a hoax.

Evolution requires a level of “blind faith” far beyond what is asked of those who believe in the Bible’s account of creation. Notice National Geographic’s remarkable admission that “the fossil record is like a film of evolution from which 999 of every 1,000 frames have been lost on the cutting room floor” (National Geographic November, 2004 p.25). While asserting that the fossil evidence proves Darwin’s theory correct, evolutionary theory asks its believers to accept a premise for which 99.9% of the data is missing!

Ask yourself: if you tried to watch a film that contained only one out of every thousand frames, would you be able to follow the story or recognize the action that occurred? How much would you know about what really happened? Practically nothing! The fossil record has countless “missing links.”

For every effect there is a spiritual cause.  Good for good and evil for evil.

Good ideas lead to good consequences.  Bad ideas lead to bad consequences.

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.”  (Romans 1:22-23)

Darwin’s false evolutionary theory, has also spawned other evil philosophies, with disastrous political and social consequences.

Evolution became a basis for irrational politics such as Machiavellianism (ie; the end justifies the means); eugenics; genocide; racialism (hierarchialism); sexual perversion; ethical relativism; emotional degradation; and a loss of respect and natural affection, which have had horrific consequences in society, these past 150 years.

An initial promoter of eugenics, was Francis Galton, a cousin of Darwin, who was inspired by Darwins: “The Origin of the Species” to selectively breed and “improve” the human race.

It forms a philosophical justification for many scientists today, involved in artificial insemination and test tube human genetical experimentations, aimed at achieving master-race humans.

Another evolution contemporary of Darwin was Herbert Spencer. He was the one who described the idea of evolution as: “survival of the fittest”.

‘Survival of the fittest’ underpins “Social Darwinism”, that has played havoc in the world these past 150 years.

Indeed …there is nothing to celebrate about Darwin in this 200th year since his birth, but there is much to mourn, when we consider the evil consequences in our world, resulting from his philosophical errors.

Many people love Darwin, because evolution reinforces their hatred and opposition to God, and His laws and way of living.

Sir Julian Huxley admitted why many quickly embraced evolution with such fervor: “I suppose the reason we leaped at The Origin of Species was because the idea of God interfered with our sexual mores” (James Kennedy, Why I Believe,1999, p. 49).

Huxley later wrote, “The sense of spiritual relief which comes from rejecting the idea of God as a super-human being is enormous” (Essays of a Humanist,1966, p. 223).

Many people glorify Darwin, because his theory has excused them in perversion and sexual immorality, while developing a new social order, without God, but with self-inflicted consequential penalties. For example, consequences from fornication, adultery and perverted sex, such as HIV, AIDS, and a host of STC diseases, as well as emotional disorders and psychological dysfunction.

Atheists and agnostics have taken the theory of evolution as a way of rejecting the reality of God as the supreme Designer, Creator, Lifegiver, Lawgiver, and Sustainer. They totally reject God as the answerer of prayer, the Supreme Prophet, our Father with His Son (our Saviour) who has outlined for us His Plan for the salvation of all mankind to be in His Family, and the awesome power of God to Resurrect all humans to life.

“For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.” (Romans 1:20-21)

Darwin has given them the excuse they were looking for, to be a god unto themselves and to live apart from God, with no faith nor loving allegiance to living by the wisdom of God’s laws and right way of life.

So, in seeking perverted pleasures to themselves, they miss out on an abundantly happy Christian life …and heap troubles and penalties upon themselves.

“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:   Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.   For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” (Romans 1:24-27)

Darwin’s teachings played out in society with a plethora of negative consequences.

Hitler was a great fan of the philosophies stemming from Darwin’s theory of evolution.

For him, it became evil-ution and underpinned Nazism, its policies, and agenda for the extermination of the Jews in the holocaust and so many other unfortunates.

Hitler was excited by the German Evolutionist, Ernest Haeckel, who took Darwin’s ideas about natural selection and applied them to human societal development. Ethics for him could be altered and moulded, because after all, from his evolutionary presumption …ethical laws and principles were simply extensions of the natural selective evolutionary processes.

They were bent to Hitler’s demented taste, and millions died tragic deaths.

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not right;”  (Romans 1:28)

It was reasoned that helping the elderly, handicapped, weak, sickly, mentally impaired, or unintelligent, might have ill effects by mixed in with the strong, healthy, and intelligent of the German master race. So, those poor people were systematically rounded up and eliminated.

Darwin’s evolution fuelled aggressive racism, providing argument that some races were superior over those considered to be primitive, and favoured the elimination of the unfit.

Hitler developed into an extreme “Social Darwinist”.

Other despots and dictators followed in his footsteps, such as Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot and other eugenic, genocidal maniacs.

“Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” (Romans 1:29-32)

Today, we have other philosophical extensions from Darwin, such as “situation ethics”. “It’s ok, as long as it doesn’t hurt anybody” is the favoured twist in this ethical falsity.  Trouble is, illicit and perverted sex, impacts disastrously in society, even though naive people enter into it, thinking and justifying themselves, that it won’t hurt anybody.

Stemming from these warped evolutionary-based philosophies, we have the effects being reaped in today’s society of abortion, infanticide, euthanasia and selfish driven ideologies of this “I-Me-Mine Generation” with their evil consequences in society.

Paul prophesied this would happen:

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.   For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. (2 Timothy 3:1-7)

“Social Darwinism” today refers to the social and political ramifications of biological Darwinism and consequential Materialism.

Since Darwin’s evolutionary theory leads to the conclusion that there is no Creator God of superior intelligence who designed, made, set in motion by laws, and sustains all things …there are consequential erroneous conclusions drawn by humans.

One of those false conclusions, is that there is ONLY this physical life and then nothing.

So, many people who are duped into that idea, send themselves into a tailspin life of hedonism and materialism …grasping to selfishly gain more and more to satiate their greed, vanity, lusts, jealousy, and carnal selfishness.

Drugs, alcoholism, illicit sex, and all types of perversions and criminal behaviour thrive in that philosophical evolutionary materialistic climate.

Society has steadily become dehumanised, depersonalised, and with less and less “natural affection” as it has been sucked into the vortex of evolutionary materialism.

‘Social Darwinism’ has impacted on the Courts, the scope of law in society, education of our children, aggressive business competition, economic striving for superiority, sociology, and bent ethics (eg; “Greed is good!” syndrome).

Historically, crime carried a penalty …”let the punishment fit the crime”. Crooks used to be expected to bear responsibility for their actions and were to make good restitution for their sins.  Not so, today.

Now, it is evolutionary philosophised …criminals should be given treatment and not punishment. It is argued that the criminal is a victim of their own evolutionary genetical biology and hence should not be held accountable for their actions.

US lawyer Clarence Darrow, from the American Civil Liberties Union, extended materialistic Darwinism to justify criminals as unavoidably being biologically-set by material forces.

Hence it is argued that because of their genetic heredity they should not be held accountable and punished for their actions. Crime as an extension of evolutionary processes, is seen as simply a mental illness or aberration, rather than a wilful evil criminal action, deserving of a penalty.

So now we have a society where criminals are seen as victims and victims are seen as aggressors seeking justice. Evil is considered good and good is made out to be evil.

Darwin’s evolutionary philosophy had ripple effects in sexual experimentation with people like sexologist Alfred Kinsey, who was known to be bisexual, even sharing his wife’s lover.

Kinsey advocated justifying all sexualities, including paedophilia and bestiality, because he considered them to be evolutionary adaption. Today evolutionary psychologists push the envelope further, by claiming that even rape and adultery is explainable and excusable as being a ‘normal’ biological drive.

Could Darwin ever have perceived what impact and negative ripple effect his theory of evolution would have?

There is an interesting observation by Darwin in his 1859 Origin of the Species:  “On my return home, it occurred to me, in 1837, that something might perhaps be made out on this question (of the origin of species) by patiently accumulating and reflecting on all sorts of facts which could possibly have any bearing on it.”

Darwin pondered what the world might be like if, say, other professions such as politicians, philosophers, and societal leaders adopted that philosophy.

Consider, as Darwin did, the great moral implication of his theory. If our lives are the result of a direct creative act by the true God, then logically He may have something to say about how we live our lives. He just might hold us accountable for our choices. But if our lives are merely a fluke of biochemical processes, then there is no Supreme Authority to whom mankind is accountable, and no need to adhere to the constraints of biblical morality.

The physical evidence for evolution is so minimal (as noted above, 999 out of 1,000 required pieces of evidence are missing) that evolutionists sometimes seem quite gullible in their search for evidence.

Note, for example, the excitement that accompanied the 1999 discovery of fossil evidence that supposedly “proved” a key step in the evolution of dinosaurs. In November 1999, a National Geographic magazine headline proudly trumpeted the news: “New Birdlike Fossils Are Missing Links in Dinosaur Evolution.” Underneath a picture of the fossils, a caption proclaimed that “this creature found in Liaoning Province, China, is a true missing link in the complex chain that connects dinosaurs to birds.” The fossil was called a transitional species, and was named Archaeoraptor by scientists. Through the latter part of 1999, it was displayed proudly at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, DC. But then came “the rest of the story.”

Further research demonstrated that scientists had not found the “missing link” between birds and dinosaurs after all. In the February 14, 2000 issue of U.S. News & World Report, editors could not resist taunting their embarrassed counterparts at National Geographic with an article that they titled: “The Piltdown Chicken.” As the article explained, “paleontologists are eating crow. Instead of ‘a true missing link’ connecting dinosaurs to birds, the specimen appears to be a composite, its unusual appendage likely tacked on by a Chinese farmer, not evolution. The ‘very bad news,’ delivered to the society December 20 in an E-mail from Chinese paleontologist and co-researcher Xu Xing, has rekindled debate over the origin of birds” (p. 53)

Sometimes, evolutionists reach conclusions so outlandish that one might rightly wonder whether they are truly serious. Take this statement from National Geographic, November 2004, page 31, regarding a discovery made by paleontologist Philip Gingerich, who has spent years researching the ancestry of whales:

“In the year 2000 Gingerich chose a new field site in Pakistan, where one of his students found a single piece of fossil that changed the prevailing view in paleontology. It was half of a pulley-shaped anklebone, know as an astragalus… Suddenly he realized how closely whales are related to antelopes. This is how science is supposed to work. Ideas come and go, but the fittest survive. Downstairs in his office Phil Gingerich opened a specimen drawer, showing me some of the actual fossils from which the display skeletons upstairs were modeled. He put a small lump of petrified bone, no larger than a lug nut, into my hand. It was the famous astragalus, from the species he had eventually named Artioocetus clavis” (”Was Darwin Wrong?” November 2004, p. 31).

Gingerich believes that he “proved” the connection between whales and antelopes from a fossil the size of a lug nut? How absurd! How bizarre! How fallacious!

Sounds like something out of the fairy tale: “The Emperor’s new clothes” which weren’t clothes at all. He was conned and left embarrassingly naked before all of his kingdom’s citizens.

However, there is a vast difference between the “micro-evolution” that is merely the variation within a particular kind of creature, such as the variety in the birds of the Galapagos that Darwin observed and the “macro-evolution” that would cause a totally different kind of creature to develop.

Dogs, for example, display tremendous variety of size, shape and colouring. However, they are all dogs, and in their variation are not “evolving” into something else. The ample evidence of variation and adaptation within species simply shows the marvellous engineering that God used in designing His creation, with such capacity for wonderful variety.

“The Darwinist materialist paradigm… is about to face the same revolution that Newtonian physics faced 100 years ago. Just as physicists discovered that the atom was not a massy particle, as Newton believed, but a baffling quantum arena accessible only through mathematics, so too are biologists coming to understand that the cell is not a simple lump of protoplasm, as Charles Darwin believed. It’s a complex information-processing machine comprising tens of thousands of proteins arranged in fabulously intricate algorithms of communication and synthesis. The human body contains some 60 trillion cells. Each one stores information in DNA codes, processes and replicates it in three forms of RNA and thousands of supporting enzymes, exquisitely supplies the system with energy, and seals it in semipermeable phospholipid membranes. It is a process subject to the mathematical theory of information, which shows that even mutations occurring in cells at the gigahertz pace of a Pentium 4 and selected at the rate of a Google search couldn’t beget the intricate interwoven fabric of structure and function of a human being in such a short amount of time. Natural selection should be taught for its important role in the adaption of species, but Darwinian materialism is an embarrassing cartoon of modern science.” (George Gilder, Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute, quoted in “Biocosm,” Wired, October 2004, p. 160).

3 things about evolution differentiate it from other sciences:

1.      Plausibility is accepted as being equivalent to evidence. (And of course the less you know, the greater the number of things that are plausible, because there are fewer facts to get in the way.) Again and again evolutionists assumed that suggesting how something might have happened is equivalent to establishing how it has happened;

2.      Evolution is more a metaphysics or ideology than a science.  Sciences give clear measurable answers. Evolution involves intense faith in fuzzy principles. You can demonstrate chemistry, and physics, but evolution requires belief. Crucial assertions do not tie to observable reality; and

3.      Evolutionists are obsessed by attacking Christianity and the Creator God. They take pride in being atheists and agnostics, which becomes a driving religion in itself.

Darwin’s theory of natural selection has led to the evolutionists believing that the mechanism of evolution is chance mutation.  Though sacrosanct among its proponents, this guess is shaky. It cannot account for the simultaneous appearance innumerable creatures and plants, all of complex, functionally interdependent characteristics, such as in the case of caterpillars to butterflies, and amazing creatures like Chameleons!  It fails.

Worse still, Darwin’s ideas about evolution, have engendered harmful other social and political philosophies that have also failed time and time again, and are currently creating havoc in our society.

Worse still those harmful political and social evolutionary philosophies are going to wax worse and worse, and will ultimately bring mankind to the point of self-destruction.

Fortunately, Jesus Christ is returning to this Earth, before humans destroy themselves. (Matthew 24:21-22)

He will establish His Government on this Earth (Isaiah 9:6-7) and the real truth about God and His way for us to live in peace, prosperity, happiness and harmony will be taught and lived.

There is a better, beautiful World coming.

Merry heart is like Medicine!

03/05/2009

by Ken E Murray

It might sound strange to some people …but the Bible has a lot to say about humour.

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit dries the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22)

That’s probably why God made our faces in such a clever way, that we use much less muscles to smile than we do to frown or be angry.

And that’s why, when one of my nephews asked me to be involved in doing a Doritos Competition Advert, I accepted.

So here are our two entries. I hope you enjoy them and that they give you a warm and happy belly laugh. It is a good tonic for us all to be able to lighten up and see the funny side of life, as well as the sobering sides of life.

“A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.” (Proverbs 15:13)

There are many medical reports that show the truth of these wise words. Humour is even used in the treatment of many diseases such as cancer and mental illnesses.

“All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart has a continual feast.” (Proverbs 15:15)

When the first Temple was dedicated to God by Solomon, the people rejoiced and kept a very happy Feast of Tabernacles. It was so good that they were all still smiling as they left to go back home.

“And in the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days.

And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that the LORD had showed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.” (2 Chronicles 7:9-10)

“Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepts your works.” (Ecclesiastes 9:7)

So smile lots …we use less muscles!  J

Is Christ’s message relevant today?

28/04/2009

by Ken E Murray

Have you ever thought what is really the central theme of Christ’s message?

What was …and still is …the message, that the ever-living Jesus Christ has for You, personally?

Our world desperately needs good news.

Today’s headlines are filled with bad news – Swine Fever killing scores of people in Mexico and spreading internationally; Taliban gaining in their takeover efforts in nuclear armed Pakistan; rising unemployment and deepening world economic crisis; famines, natural disasters, earthquakes, cholera, AIDS and other disease epidemics, and grinding world poverty.

Suffering and bad news is relentless …it’s time we had a break!

So, does Christ’s message carry any future hope …for you?

Well …the good news is that it does, but it is not the typical “turn-off” news you may have heard in the past about Christ.

Most people have heard a message about the life of Jesus …but hardly anyone has actually heard the futuristic message delivered by Jesus.

What was that message, of the real Jesus Christ …for you and me?

Here it is simply given in Christ’s own words:

Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel (good news) of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”  (Mark 1:14-15)

Did you catch Christ’s message?

The real Jesus Christ taught:

·        we need to understand the good news and begin preparing for the coming Kingdom of God on this earth, when He returns to rule the world, by establishing His Government here on this planet. (Isaiah 9:6-7);

·        we need to repent and turn to God with all our heart, mind …be baptised …and become converted, by developing the mind of Christ in our lives, with the gift of His Holy Spirit within us;

·        we need to continue faithfully to believe and live by Christ’s good news message of how we should live by God’s right way of life;

·        we need salvation, which can only come through Jesus Christ (Act 4:12) “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

The message is clear …and the rewards are enormous.

Imagine being a son or daughter of God …and being able to help serve Jesus in His Government on this earth?

This is your destiny.

This is the road to eternal life being a son or daughter of God for eternity.

The real Jesus taught this message and gave His life in place of you and me …so that we might choose to take up the invitation to be in the Family of God.

Many are offered the invitation but few accept the invitation, and do something about it.

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:14-19)

Did you notice that?

God the Father is the Head of the Family of God.

God is a Family.

You too can be part of God’s Family.

Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons (children) of God: therefore the world knows us not, because it knew Him not.  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is. And every man that has this hope in him purifies himself, even as He is pure.” (1John 3:1-3)

Did you realise that?

What is the purpose that God the Father has in mind for you?

What is the purpose of the Gospel of the Kingdom, which was the true message of the real Christ?

Yes!  You can be a son or daughter of God …serve in His Kingdom when He establishes His Government on this earth …and live a happy life in His Family for eternity.

“Wherefore come out from among them, and be you separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” (2Corinthians 6:17-18)

Did you grasp that?

You can be considered by God …as a son or daughter of God …now.

How good is that!

“Why was I born?”

25/04/2009

by Ken E Murray

This is the “I” generation.

For many people everything revolves around doing what satisfies I, me, my, mine, myself.

But with all the satiation in seeking what is best for self, one huge question remains?

That huge question is: “Why was I born???”

I had to laugh at a cartoon recently of a parent explaining to their little child about how they were born, to which their child responded:

“Yes, yes, I understand how I was born. But, I want to know why?”

Even some entertainers like Cher, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald have sung the lyrics of Oscar Hammerstein II, in the Jerome Kern song, “Why was I born?”:

“Why was I born? Why am I living? What do I get? What am I giving? What can I hope for? I wish I knew.”

Atheists can’t answer the question, because they think that this life you are living is all that there is. When you die …Kapput!! That’s it, they believe.  There ain’t no more you.

The reality is …before God …you are unique.  No one else has your genes. No one else has your same personality.   What you are and who you are and the character you have developed in overcoming the things you have overcome, is unique before God.  Your life is precious.

Better than that, God has in store for you the most incredible fulfilling purpose you can imagine. It is awesome!

Have you heard the definition of an Athesist?

“An Atheist is a person with no invisible means of support.”  (John Buchan 1875-1940)

Many people never pause to consider their real purpose in life.  Sadly, most assume there is no goal or purpose, beyond this physical life.  They remain ignorant of the reason why they were born and why their lives are sustained by God.   Your ultimate future is awesome!

An Agnostic is someone who knows nothing, who is not sure of what to believe, and is proud of it.

A Gnostic on the other hand, is someone who thinks they know things separately from God, but in so doing, separate themselves from God.

Understanding the answer to life’s biggest question: “Why was I born?” starts with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom that there is a true God.

The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good.” (Psalm 14:1)

Yes, it is true, only a fool says there is no God.

The Apostle Paul explains how we can find the true God, and what happens to people who don’t.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:    Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.     Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” (Romans 1:20-22)

In actual fact, the answer to another huge question in life, gives us the answer to: “Why was I born?”

That other biggie is: “is God repoducing Himself?”

The exciting answer to that question, is found in your Bible  …and it is not what you have traditionally heard, espoused.

Why not check out this free booklet: What is Your Destiny for some real answers.

Meantime …keep pumpin’!

Why is Australia on self-destruct?

25/04/2009

by Ken E Murray.

Here is a copy of a letter I have just sent to one of our outspoken politicians …who still has some backbone …in the hope that he might say something more to alert Australians, in an area of where this Government has us on a self-destruct course.

“Why doesn’t this Australian Government invest our taxpayers money into real capital assets …like, buying what the Chinese want.

For example, why don’t we Australian taxpayers buy a controlling number of shares in OZ Minerals and retain the 2nd biggest zinc mine in the world, Century mine? We could buy the whole shebang for around $1.5billion.

We would then be able to preserve Australian jobs and stop the Chinese Government from nationalising some of our richest turf as part of China.

You know Barnaby, once the Chinese are happily owning a critical mass of Australia’s best resources …they will invoke the 457 Visa, using our own laws …and import their own “skilled labour” coolie workforce at vastly reduced wages.

We could also take a share in Rio Tinto in the same way …rather than spraying borrowed Chinese Bond money all over the world and to criminals. druggies, drinkers and poker machine players.

Then when the Economy picks up again we could sell half our share holdings in these companies and get our money back …as well as retaining our other half of shares and collecting dividends for us Taxpayers.

Why isn’t any politician suggesting some sensible investments of our hard won taxpayers money??

Today, our Diggers, on Anzac Day, figuratively must be moaning and groaning in their graves …to see how our beloved Australia is stealthily being invaded and taken over, piece by valuable resource-rich piece …and how cheaply their sacrifice, paid with their own blood, is being sold for less than a bowl of soup!

Why isn’t someone saying these things in Parliament?”

You know, we need a biblical Joseph or Daniel in charge of Australia, now, more than in any time in our history.

Meantime …keep pumpin’!

Oh my Country …my Country!

23/04/2009

by Ken E Murray

It has been mind blowing to see how this current Australian Government have taken us …in just 18 months …from $20 billion surplus and $60 billion in future fund …to scores of $billions into the red.

Now their blithering ‘enlightened target’ is to have us much more than $200 billion in debt and are claiming on tonight’s news …by lies and deceit …that it is only going to be a “temporary debt”.

Blind fools leading the blind…

Our Government is selling Australia to the Chinese and Japanese at the rate of over $500million in Government Bonds each week.

Why are people so apathetic about the consequences of just this action alone?

Then we have the apathy about the Chinese Government and Japanese interests buying up our best mining and food industry capital assets at an alarming rate …but the majority of our politicians and leaders are asleep at the alarm switch.

We have become conditioned to a false paradigm of eternal safety and security in Australia, thinking we will never be taken over by other foreign powers.

People are living in a dreamlike lah lah land.

We have been lulled into a false sense of security.

Why, we can’t even man our 6 Collins Class submarines. We can only staff 3 of them with overly stressed naval personnel.

Meanwhile China is expanding its submarine fleet bigtime.

Why?

Won’t be long now and Japan will be upgrading and re-arming as well …now that North Korea is giving them the perfect alibi excuse.

…ohh my Country …my wonderful Aussie Country!

I am an average Aussie with a sense of larrikin humour.

But, there is nothing funny about the mismanagement of our wonderfully blessed Australia.

Australia is rapidly going from being a Prince to a pauper.

We desperately need a Joseph or a Daniel, to handle our economy wisely and invest in capital assets, instead of letting other nations like the Chinese nationalise Australia for themselves.

Our Government should be buying Oz Minerals …not the Chinese Government.

We should be buying the power share of ownership of Rio Tinto …not the Chinese Government.

The borrower is servant to the lender (Proverbs 22;7; Deuteronomy 28:44-45)

The biblical prophecies are steadily coming home to roost for Australia.

He who has “withheld” in the past is lifting His protection and is “withholding no longer” (2 Thessalonians 2:6-7).

Christ’s warning about the end-time rulership of the “times of the Gentiles”, is rapidly developing before our very eyes …for those who have eyes to see. (Luke 21:24)

Meantime …keep pumpin’!
