I'm formally rejecting both "Libertarianism" and "Democracy."
Both are fundamentally man center.
More complex reasons:
Libertarianism is clearly a man center philosophy and putting the individual as a god. This is the logical conclusion of Libertarianism. I can not out of good conscience support Libertarianism in terms of a political philosophy. I'm basically dropping the label.
Democracy is an even more dangerous philosophy than libertarianism. Democracy basically seeks to have 51% rule over 49%, aka mob rule. Now, there isn't really any pure Democracies out there, most have some kind of parliament system or legislative system (like in the USA). In reality, it is more like 30% ruling over the 70% eligible voters. Typically, roughly 40% voting population don't vote for various reason. Of course, it is different in each area. So, we get in most situations where 30% to 35% of the population making decisions for the rest of the nation.
The politics of envy are very high in a Democracy, and envy is a sin. I suppose that one could not be envious and still participate in a governmental democracy (aka voting) but typically it is rare to see those types of people voting.
So what is next?
I would consider myself a Jesus Freak that holds to a Reformed Christian perspective. Reformed Christianity is the most consistent strain of Christianity to the 66 books of the Bible.
So, how do I conduct myself in society? You will not see me at the polls or telling people that they should support x candidate. I will point out that, Jesus is King, why would I trade Jesus for a politician, this will be more or less my answer to things of politics. I will be advocating people to get out of politics altogether and just focus on Jesus as King, not some politician. I'll still have conversations about politics, but only in terms of analysis of the situation or just personal preference (not actually voting). So, I will continue to hang around libertarians and culturally right wing people, mainly because the left has gone insane in terms of the way they want society to go.
Another thing I will continue to advocate is homeschooling, going to church and glorifying Jesus in all areas of life.

So, I sometimes go on Charity Navigator and look for really amazing charities. And one of those charities is Truth For Life, aka Alister Begg's charity. He has a near perfect score over the last 7 years, question mark. He was the only one that had a perfect score compared to all of the other religious charities. One of the nice things about his charity, all of his content that he produce is free on the website / app, and if you want the things that are in physical format, it is at cost, unlike many other ministries. This stands out as amazing. Which is why I'm doing a shift towards stronger more well run charities instead of what I personally like. Sure, I'm a big fan of James White but his charity score is not available because I think he and others at Alpha and Omega Ministries want to fly under the radar. That being said, I'm going to put more emphasis of giving to charities that are well run. And you might want to do the same.
Please note, that if you are a Christian your local church still needs to be first priority and it is up to you to make sure you know how your money is being spent at your local church.
Reformedistand is HERE. I'm so overwhelm with joy and grateful that the year of 2021 is the start of Reformedistand. What do I mean Reformedistand? It is a term that I made up that groups all of the Reformed minded, Biblically sound, organizations, people and churches are a "country." Since, I've been a libertarian since 2008, I've been kind of about the "istands" and countries. But because what is going on our culture world wide, there will be a massive exit of Christianity and the only ones left are those who are in Reformedistand. Being a Christian will have a cost, whether or not, Christians are going to be jailed in the USA is too be seen, my guess, Christianity will be more and less like that of Europe. In Europe Christianity had died a long time ago. I personally know some of my brothers and sisters in Christ, that went over to Europe to share the Good News of Jesus, back five or six years ago.
Some of the evidences of Reformedistand:
Grace Community Church Growth and the 10 months of giving to Grace without having an offering plate was the most Grace has ever seen in the history of the church.
Answers In Genesis killed it in their fundraising efforts.
The Shepherd's Conference of 2020 was one of the last conferences before the shut down, and are in fact, most likely going to have another one in March of 2021.
My church had seen an increase of giving, even though my church isn't technically reformed but it is made up of reformed minded and Biblically sound individuals.
Dr. James White's Church and his side kick Rich's Church, had seen a growth in their churches.
I think we are going to see an absolute strengthening of the true Church in the days ahead. I see the light at the end of the tunnel but the tunnel will be long and costly. I might be living in a bubble, but my gut is saying that over the course of several years, Biblically minded churches and organizations will grow.
Due to the nature of video gaming and producing video gaming content is a lot less free than just doing a simple podcast where I can freely say what I want to say without worry about crossing all of my tees. There are a lot less things to worry about when I make Podcast Episodes. Plus it is WAY CHEAPER to podcast than doing video. I was thinking I would need to get an over powered gaming laptop in order to do gaming on the side, but I guess that is what Jesus doesn't want me to do. He would have let me continue to do what I was doing. That being said, I plan on doing an interesting podcast, a type of podcast that I enjoy listening, mediocre one. I did explain this in more detail and more rambling on, in podcast episode 44. Now I'm kind of excited to go back to Podcast and get this thing off the ground which it had stopped and started and I did different versions but I'm going to do the podcast again! Now this is what 4th or 5th attempt? I lost track anyways, I'm going to experiment with different things until Episode 50. After Episode 50, I'm going to do more or less stick with what I want to do. I will try to get a good 45 minutes (if not more) per episode, so I have a lot of work to do in terms of getting that much content. I think this is where Jesus is leading me to do. We will wait and see! Stay Free my friends, stay free! - Terence
So, Twitter was fine with banning Trump but Twitter is fine with child porn being on its site. Yeah, I'm glad that I'm never going back to Twitter, again. Here is the article:
