“He can’t be serious” were my first thoughts to the On Line article “A Christian church” by Peter Bowden 22/2/2017.
He writes: “The dictionaries will tell you that the word Christian has two meanings: One is a follower of the Christian Church, the second is having qualities usually associated with Christians, especially those of decency, kindness, and fairness. This is an article about the second type of Christian. Or at least a second type of Christian Church.
This is what Wallace Klinck thinks of Cory Berardi's latest bulletin of "Common Sense Lives Here:
Cory Bernardi says that his new so-called “Australian Conservatives" Movement is driving “change” in Australia but from his comments in this bulletin it is more than obvious that the “change” of which he speaks is actually more of the same and even an intended intensification of the tragic and misguided policies which have been the mark of Western politicians in the past—policies which have been contaminated by Pharisaism with the consequent continued phased degradation of Christian Civilization. Is Cory simply uninformed—or has he caved in to the false Left-Right dialectic fostered by the forces of destruction which from time immemorial have waged relentless war against Christian beliefs--and especially any organic incarnation of them?
Thanks for this latest report, Cory. Interesting to learn that you have terminated your past political allegiance and decided to pursue a new approach. You express concern about the accumulated financial debt burden bearing upon Australian society. Precisely what do you suggest as a solution to this problem? Under the existing financial system you will be entirely unable to improve this situation or even to halt the relentless growth of that debt.
All nations operate essentially under the Keynesian system of debt finance. This system generates financial costs at an ever greater rate than it distributes effective consumer income. Under existing rules there is no alternative whatsoever but to incur more debt in a futile attempt to compensate for this growing shortage of effective income. Because this deficiency increases as industry modernizes, and non-labour costs increase relative to labour costs, the financial problem intensifies with every increase in productive efficiency achieved through increasingly refined real capital enhanced by improving technology.
Ref:https://www.cfact.org/2017/02/09/the-hidden-agendas-of-sustainability-illusions/ Environmental radicals are circling the wagons to defend “global warming” as a rationale to grant them economic and political power, but they're having a tough time. Their scientific case is collapsing. What's a Green to do? Pivot to an eco-campaign that defies any objective measure of objectivity whatsoever: "Sustainability." The "sustainability" ploy has been working its way through the UN since the first Rio "Earth Summit" in 1992 (we know, CFACT was there), was written into the UN's "Agenda 21" document, and is today quietly but steadily working its way through state and local government halls near you.
CFACT senior policy analyst Paul Driessen posted substantial details at CFACT.org. Here are a few samples of what the Greens are saying about their utopian eco-cause of “sustainability”:
Peter Sellick is concerned upon discovering Christian theology was replaced by a ‘new’ theology (On Line Opinion, Peter Sellick “A new heaven and a new earth” 2 February 2017. He credits German theologian Johannes Weiss (1863-1914) with the recovery of the Gospel message of “an imminent kingdom of God that was a social reality.”
No political movement can exist in a moral vacuum, and Australians have traditionally accepted that it is the Christian Faith that generated our heritage of representative government. While the League maintains a small full-time staff primarily motivated by Christian service, it is the extensive network of volunteers from all walks of life who form the backbone of the Movement.
The League of Rights seeks to help create a body of dedicated men and women who serve not for their own material gain, but as custodians of those truths and values which must form the basis of all successful efforts to defeat the enemies of human dignity and freedom.
The League encourages and equips individuals to independently exercise their own initiative in the service of freedom.
