Acts In Futility (Bilingual)

To: Friends and Family

“I can’t loose sleep worrying about when and how doomsday will come. All I can do is spend my waking hours worrying about how and when I can love you.”

“No puedo perder el sueño preocupándome por cuándo y cómo llegará el día del juicio final. Lo único que puedo hacer es pasar mis horas que estoy despierto preocupándome por cómo y cuándo podré amarte.”

To: Christian Nationalists

“I know we can’t choose our fate, but how does one progress or secure our future, if you allow someone from the past to keep pulling your strings?”

“Sé que no podemos elegir nuestro destino, pero ¿cómo puede uno progresar o asegurar su futuro, si permites que alguien del pasado siga manejando tus cuerdas?”

To: Enemies of Democracy

“The only way the comrades can survive a nuclear showdown, is if we have super patriots defending the mother land. Last time I checked, they only existed in comic books.”

“La única manera de sobrevivir a un enfrentamiento nuclear, es si tenemos súper héroes defendiendo la tierra madre. La última vez que lo comprobé, sólo existían en las revistas de historietas.”

Lets talk about the Fermi paradox and filters

Commentary: Scholars who study conspiracy theories note that they flourish more easily when they tap into people’s pre-existing prejudices, stereotypes or fears. They also propagate more readily—in what are perceived as times of upheaval and cultural change—when people feel like the Earth is moving under their feet.

“You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore, until you decide to be happy.” By: Jane Marczewski

“It’s about detachment, all the things in your life—you have to also be prepared to live without them.” By: Alexander Hurst

“In every encounter, we either give life or we drain it; there is no neutral exchange.” By: Brennan Manning

“…however, I feel anger and frustration at those who simply looked away. I’m now convinced by hard experience that much, if not most, evil is protected and prolonged by good people who choose not to see or hear. But we are each other’s keepers, and by God’s grace—as well as by the power of the internet, good journalism and truth tellers everywhere—it is harder and harder for us to look away. What we do once we face suffering and injustice, of course, remains to be seen.” Excerpt from We got here because too many good people put their head in the sand

Jesus said, “Watch out for doomsday deceivers. Many leaders are going to show up with forged identities, claiming, ‘I am Christ, the Messiah.’ They will deceive a lot of people. When reports come in of wars and rumored wars, keep your head and don’t panic. This is routine history; this is no sign of the end. Nation will fight nation and ruler fight ruler, over and over. Famines and earthquakes will occur in various places. This is nothing compared to what is coming. They are going to throw you to the wolves and kill you, everyone hating you because you carry my name. And then, going from bad to worse, it will be dog-eat-dog, everyone at each other’s throat, everyone hating each other. In the confusion, lying preachers will come forward and deceive a lot of people. For many others, the overwhelming spread of evil will do them in—nothing left of their love but a mound of ashes. Staying with it—that’s what God requires. Stay with it to the end. You won’t be sorry, and you’ll be saved. All during this time, the good news—the Message of the kingdom—will be preached all over the world, a witness staked out in every country. And then the end will come.” The Message, Matthew 24:4-14
