I, your name here, do solemnly swear to continue dedicating my lifestyle to the unending and wanton pollution of YHVH's planet, and all life dependent upon it, and to be a daily living danger to other life-forms, by hurdling my motor vehicle all about, without any eternal purposes, but only to squander the natural resources You have appointed humanity to be the wise stewards thereof. I hereby willingly and knowingly endanger others outside of my vehicle, as well as my passengers and myself inside, in this meaningless act that I blindly mimic from others, just so that I do not have to walk, which is how You, Lord, have clearly designed us humans to live.
I do all this as a public demonstration of my Loveless indifference unto all that You (YHVH) have created. I am hereby ready to possibly kill someone, today, just to not walk. I must be accepted by those around me. I must! I also understand and accept that each time I buy gas I directly fund some of the greatest acts of collusion and evil, ever perpetrated on Earth. I know that the pollution trail I leave behind will cause both short and long-term health issues for others near my car, but I just do not care anymore. This act will be my daily declaration, unto my observing Creator, of my complete indifference toward the creation.
Now of course, such open transparency is not the mentality (or mindset) of the masses; the bulk of humanity, including almost all self-professing Christians, do not actually truly believe in Judgment Day to begin with. Hence, they must/will, justify (Luke 10:25-29; 16:13-15) and validate and rationalize the lifestyle they have already committed to living: Everyone else is doing it; that makes it OK (or monkey-see-monkey-do).
However, among the infinitesimal few Elect of YHVH – the one (accountable) adult per quarter-billion adults (children excluded) – we painfully know of this cold reality, and so we live our daily lives with that understanding; we purpose to avoid needing money and all the subsequent trappings within the mammon cult (which of course, must include the car cult). We avoid the need and use of depleting (especially non-renewable) natural resources, as a living testimony; a lifestyle witness of our Master, Messiah Yeshua.
The Judge (Messiah Yeshua) on Judgment Day, will cast the vast majority of human Souls into the blackness of darkness (what many call Hell); the empty expanses of deep-deep outer space (see all of Matt 25) until the final annihilation (the Big Crunch perhaps?), millions millennia from now. There, the incorporeal Souls of the masses will eventually discover, via the never-ending repeated and clear memories (Matt 13:36-40, 41-43, 45-50), how many times they experienced YHVH-truth (like now), but declared the power of personal pride and volition instead (John 3:19-21).
Those willing to cause such suffering, within their own families and upon other families, are desperate to keep up with the Joneses just so they will be accepted by the human masses. They cannot (and thus will not) live a lifestyle that reflects Messiah Yeshua: They remain trapped in the shoebox of blind enculturation. The local church-business theaters will provide assurances, via their entertaining (psychological and emotional masturbation for a tithe) productions (Luke 13:23-27), thus securing their eternal doom (Matt 7:13-14, 18-23; Luke 13:24-28).
The hunger-lust of the Spiritually lost, to copy-mimic-parrot those around them, just so they can fit-in and belong and be accepted by them, is so overwhelmingly powerful, that one must question if this is even possible with the human brain alone, or, if we are witness to how demons infect, affect, and effect, actions within people. I'd be mortified if I spent one second (cradle to grave), caring one dot what any mere mortal thought of me. Nevertheless, the self-justification is always the same (from kids and immature adults): Everyone else is doing it! Such blind followship is hard for me to process, and difficult to watch.
Conscious Awareness may sound simple; even natural: But precious few humans ever achieve it (though every person that will enter the Kingdom of Heaven will be masters of it). Of course, the very nature of the Messianic Scriptures revolves around awareness, or enlightenment, for it is (among others) a central feature of ultimate wisdom and eternal destiny.
This life was/is a testing ground to allow free-will beings choice (volition + options = character, for good or evil): Either to live as servants of an Eternal Master, or to be lords themselves. There will only be One Lord in Heaven. Therefore, the Cross was about making God-in-us a possibility: And that God-in-us was/is necessary to take us from Spiritual blindness, and into the glorious light of YHVH: Was blind but now I see!
Messiah Yeshua said that the tree is known by the fruit it bears! Put another way: We are what we do, and no more! We are the sum of our actions and inactions; a compilation which is our lifestyle. How we live is the only true testimony (or test) of our Spiritual status, because religious affiliation, like personality, is but a mask of the true self; a distraction from actual Christ-centric living. Therefore, we the Elect of YHVH, live as unto Christ and not as unto culture. Consequently, and like the temple moneychangers, a church parking lot is an oxymoron to all who live by daily dying, within Kingdom living.
It is sad indeed, and heartbreaking, to be eye-witness to the brutal lifestyles of the money-dependent Satan-serving masses that surround me; all the Loveless materialistic consumer drones, living here in the USA. My life is complete to overflowing (John 4:10-14; 7:37-39), but the masses around me, grope in their Spiritual darkness, trying to keep up with (and compete for) the products of their blind enculturation.
The Satan-inspired, know not what they do (Luke 23:33-34): They actually believe they need cars (and literal tons of other things); they are willing daily, to put so many people at risk, just to not walk; just to roll around all over the now-asphalt-surfaced, face of Earth, trying desperately to fill the Spiritual voids that is the root cause of their peace-less state of (eternally meaningless) ambitions.
They actually believe they must go into debt to live; to make never-enough money to fuel this madness. They look upon all other people as a potential resource; everyone they look upon is calculated and scanned for what they can bring to them. Humans have long ago, forgotten that YHVH provides 100% of all that we need, from the renewable natural world (plants and trees).
We can obtain all our own organic food sources, and build our own homes, mortgage-free and debt-free, and live a simple and contented life, without the curse of $-mammon-$. We, the infinitesimal few Elect of YHVH, do not look upon people as a potential sale, or any type of a personal potential resource: We are freed from this bondage. We get all from YHVH.
But the masses have no other choice but to kill the metaphorical messenger, and justify themselves, for example, by thinking or saying that I must be on a computer and the Internet, which all costs money, and that part is true. It is the end-times after all, and, it is the 21st (and last) Century, and so things will not be anything like it was, for the bulk of human-time. I live in Sodom 2.0, where money is god; where the monetization of everything sacred cannot happen fast enough. I live the life I'd like to see in the world, but I'm only one.
If climate change is really human-induced, that means that I am personally and economically responsible for this, as a purchaser of fossil fuel products that I personally burn into the atmosphere. I know that my lifestyle actions pollute the air, which my family, and all other life on Earth, needs; but hey, everyone else is doing it, right? Therefore, I choose not to believe that my actions affect the local or global climate; that my commitment to my daily lifestyle, does no harm, because that would make me feel guilty, and that's a negative; after all, I'm a good person: Right? Right! Therefore, climate change is a hoax; or, it's naturally occurring. It has to be anything but my fault. Now if you'll excuse me; I must go burn ever-more gas, and blow leaves onto the asphalt road in front of my big-home!
But these end-times – most notably the Anthropocene – was all seen by ancient prophets, who had visions of our time, even though they had no way to describe it accurately, based upon their ancient and simple experiences. But just as it was prophesied by Messiah (Luke 17:20-25, 26-29, 30-33), the end-times cannot be complete without the masses denying (till the end) that we humans are doing anything wrong; that anything bad is coming. I call this The Noah Conundrum!
The Godless human masses literally invest their lifetime on Earth, dedicated to the wanton destruction of their only home in the solar system, hurriedly paving the surface or Earth; already they have destroyed most of the animal kingdom to make way for the now-massive car culture, complete with parking lots where trees and animals of all sorts and the sum natural world, once thrived naturally for countless millennia; and roadways that now scar the planet, cutting off natural migrations.
Indeed, the Faithless-Godless-Loveless human masses (including the Xians of Religianity) long ago declared war on YHVH and the natural world that YHVH created. We are now on a human-centric planet, designed for humans only. Even National Parks have become little more than giant Zoos, looked upon by children as some foreign world that should be kept isolated; admired but caged to keep it separated from the ever-expanding Godless human infestation that has cursed this planet of YHVH. Thankfully for us (infinitesimal few) faithful stewards of all YHVH-creations, there are many more virgin planets to serve out our eternality in the service of our only King, Lord, and Master. This one will be rendered uninhabitable, but its existence in the universe will be a testimony of how Satan and evil beings can destroy entire worlds.
(Matt 8:19-20; Luke 9:57-58) I lived unhomed (or home-free) for a time, utilizing homeless shelters in the dead of winter, and otherwise sleeping outside; walking miles into an urban area to coffee shops early in the mornings to warm up, and to get online with my old used laptop to write for my Master. But then I got too old for that: And it's illegal not to bow to lord Mammon, here in the capitalist plutocracy of the end-times. But I wanted to try to live without any money, and I never begged or borrowed or took money from anyone. It is illegal to homestead in the capitalist plutocracy; illegal to grow food on this planet that's owned only by YHVH. The last truly free humans on North America were the Natives, prior to their Holocaust at the hands of the antiChrist Europeans.
The Faithless-Godless-Loveless human masses, despise YHVH, and so they live antiChrist lives and lifestyles, one of which is to lay a monetary claim to land, even though (in fact) no man owns this earth we're on. But this is how men play gods on Earth, and why they are eternally doomed, and why they will not know that during this life. Spiritual blindness means an oblivion to self, and/or, the power to justify it all away, because there is far too much pride to swallow, for YHVH to ever draw men even near the Cross of Christ.
Owning a car and/or partaking in the car-cult, is by itself, a brazen act of indifference unto all life on Earth. The single greatest short and long-term health risk to your progeny, is the overwhelming car-cult that is also a major player in the end-times and its ultimate destruction of life on Earth. Air pollution is now the world's largest single environmental health risk! But there is really only two options in this life; justify the lifestyle you are already dedicated to living, or, surrender unconditionally unto the supreme and eternal Lordship of Messiah Yeshua, and die completely to the self that currently reigns over you.
The car-culture is really the car-cult: It fits this description best. People knowingly and willingly put others in extreme danger by hurdling down paved roads inside of a ton of metal and glass, at speeds the human body was not created to experience; hence, the millions of deaths by blunt force trauma. Like the dangers of tobacco, all Love-driven people are also fully (and fearfully) aware that motor vehicle injuries are a leading cause of death among children in the USA; that cars are the biggest source of air pollution; that the oil wars will be key to Armageddon, and to enable it all (at the pump), makes one a collaborator; guilty by association.
Anyone knowing these facts (and more), would have to be indifferent (or Loveless), even to contemplate placing a child in a motor vehicle; even to own one or associate self with the car-cult. But this is the central theme here; without light – the enlightenment of the Indwelling Holy Spirit – the bulk of humanity live in spiritual darkness (churched or not), and thus, they cannot see what's being communicated. Anyone can read these words, but only YHVH can change the heart/mind.
It is analogous to describing a mountain-scape to one who has seen nothing but blackness (those born eye-blind); they can understand the words but they will never actually see it: Blind enculturation will determine the eternal fate of the masses. Even reading these words; I'm sure that all of this seems alien to the bulk of humanity (1Pe 2:9-12; 2Co 6:14-18); even unto the churched (the Godless-religious; the counterfeits). The local churches are nothing more than justification stations; the adherents pull in weekly to fill up on validation for the antiChrist lifestyle that they, and their church professionals, all share in.
Apart from unconditional surrender unto the supreme and eternal Lordship of Messiah Yeshua – a subsequent death to this life, followed by a metaphorical defibrillation back to Life by the Indwelling Holy Spirit – the spiritually blind have no other choice, but to follow those in front of them (Matt 15:13-14; Luke 6:39-42); they live monkey-see-monkey-do, copy-mimic-parrot, us-against-them lives and lifestyles, remaining oblivious to how that impacts others. The ideals of Love neighbor as self; to Love your enemies like you do your own children; these are not only impossible for them to do, it is improbable for them to even comprehend YHVH-Love: Even among the churched; the Xians of Religianity.
Love is the great mystery. For the bulk of humanity, they live in darkness continuously. It is that state of out-of-sight-out-of-mind that shapes and drives the Spiritually blinded masses. Therefore, if they do not see suffering, they cannot empathize with it; if they do not personally suffer a loss they, cannot (do not) relate to others who do. They live in the shoebox of blind enculturation: There, life is only what the see and experience. It is not their kids suffering from the consequences of the car cult, and so they will continue in it, unabated. Even parents who have lost children to the car cult, will continue in it themselves: A typical sign of any cult.
The bulk of humanity thrives (in primal mode) on competitivism, adversarialism, territorialism, capitalization, dominion, and self-superiority; hence the class systems, the bigotry, patriotism, war, and indeed, any and all manifestations of neighbor-hating us-against-them-ism that perpetuates the victim-class and thus justifies all evil. The blinded must believe that they are superior to all others; that they're the good guys and those others are the bad guys, but then mask that reality in superficial socialization paradigms.
Almost everything that humans have done, or are doing on Earth, is but a compilation of utter Godlessness (which is Lovelessness). The incurable insanity of the global car-cult (and the money-dependent in general); this is only one manifestation among hundreds, supporting this end-time fact. Cars make people feel empowered; important; superior; entitled; egotistic. People actually gain a self-identity from these purchased machines, even contending over which one is superior to the next. As horrifyingly pathetic as all this competition is to me – and to anyone who is even in the same galaxy as the Cross of Christ – for the bipedal hominid masses, it is all they know or experience: monkey-see-monkey-do, indeed.
As a non-participant in the car-cult myself, I experience how dangerous it is to share time-space with the Godless masses, who exist utterly indifferent to how their actions put others in harm or danger. The most dangerous situations in my life were not waking through bad neighborhoods; it was crossing roads (or even in parking lots); it's when I'm around the car-cultists, who are among the most dangerous beings on Earth: The car-cultists kill or debilitate more people yearly, than all acts of terrorism has planet-wide: And their self-justifications are more horrifying than the terrorists.
The dangers increase exponentially (esp. for children and the elderly) with the airborne particles created near roadways from brake-pads, rust, and a host of other ways that cars deteriorate and expel onto the paved road systems (e.g. leaking liquids such as oils, antifreeze and gas). All that dust is kicked-up when cars fly by, creating a concentrated zone of PM (or particulate matter). This is not even calculating (and in stunning numbers) the atmospheric gases that are harming all life on YHVH's planet.
Owning and using a car is a routine demonstration unto YHVH that you openly do not care if this action (participation in the car-culture) might very well result in the death of another person; because, by the gods, I've got shopping to do; mamma needs new shoes! In other words, it is your witness unto YHVH of your indifference (or Loveless state) and the subsequent self-serving lifestyle. This is what this life is all about; it is for YHVH to watch and record what you do, and that collected data will be used, both for and against you on Judgment Day.
A car is just an inanimate object; in itself, it's just another man-made machine; parked it's just a thing. However, for most it is an idol; it is an extension of their very identity; a source of personal empowerment. But this is exactly how benign sin always seems to the unrepentant. Once the pride-filled individual decides they're going to do a thing (in this example; participate in the car-cult) the brain automatically and instantly produces an array of thought packages; self-justifications, rationalizations, and explanations, which serve to justify the act or lifestyle.
Conversely, the humbled-redeemed, carefully and prayerfully considers each and every action and lifestyle choice, holding everything against the weight of Scripture. This does not mean that one is to read the bible seeking words that say: Thou shalt not drive cars! There are thousands of reasons why the bulk of humanity are hell-bound, and almost none of them are listed quite so perspicuously. In fact, there is only one Law for the Elect of YHVH: The Royal Law (James 2:5-10) and all of Matthew five, six and seven. Once you become Love, your lifestyle will be a mirror of Messiah, not enculturation; you will have the mind of Christ, not the justifications of men.
Without the Indwelling Holy Spirit, a person exists in a Loveless state, and not only are they Loveless, without Christ-in-you a person cannot fathom what Love even is! YHVH is Love and Satan is pride: yet, Loveless people say the words I love you to others often: Why? Emotions! Because they have them. But Love is a verb; therefore, not an emotion. What harm is there in saying it? Because it is a mockery of YHVH, and doing so will only serve to further cement and secure your eternal doom.
The Xians of Religianity will pray to their god-of-this-world (2Co 4:1-5) to protect them as they embark in their death-trap on wheels; conversely, the Spiritually transformed, Kingdom-living, daily-dying, Saved person, never gets into the thing to begin with. It is a mockery to play weekend Christian while living an antiChrist lifestyle daily: Indeed, it is evil.
But the Faithless-Godless-Loveless are oblivious to what the Saved person sees plainly. The Godless live exactly like the culture tells them to live; conversely, the Saved person lives a Christ-centric life and lifestyle, considering nothing whatsoever that everyone else is doing. The Saved look to the Cross; the rest to the culture.
What separates the Elect of YHVH, from the sheer bulk of humanity, is rather simple to comprehend, but nearly impossible to accept, and then live by. The Elect of YHVH live purpose-driven lifestyles (lives), and that manifests primarily in our dedication to Love-centric ways of thinking and living: We put others before self (Matt 5:43-48; 22:35-40; Rom 13:8-10).
In that process (within the lifestyle of Love), we daily study life itself, and then dedicate our very existence to living as safely and as simply as it is possible for us. The entire car-culture is an abject failure, and on so many levels that one would have to literally be indifferent (or Loveless) to continue to participate in it. But that's just how self-justification works; it is an intentional blindness to self; it is to ignore or to rationalize away, this message and any others like it. This is why people deny climate change, because they're going to continue to live as they have been, with no intentions of changing for anyone. And those who suffer are not their problem.
More cars means more surface paved to accommodate them, moving or parked; more gas to power them; way too much natural resources to build them to begin with (and again and again forever?); and more pollution will equate to an increase in related health issues, especially when coupled with urban heat traps, which are mostly caused by the car-cult. People are small compared to cars; vehicles take up a lot of space, and having millions of cars all about, creates spatial problems too. If I could have 1% of the real estate dedicated to the car-cult, I could end homelessness globally inside a month.
Humans have already destroyed (too many) millions of acres, in that dogged pursuit of monetizing all of Earth; everything in it or on it, for ever-more money: Coal, oil, steel and precious metals (Ore), you name it; it's a long list. The car-cult alone, has been more devastating (in the long run) to Earth, than every construct built upon Earth since the beginning (excluding power plants and its grid). And all this, just to not walk: Fascinating! Terrifying!
But the effects of the car on societies is far too obvious to logically debate any longer; the harmful effects of vehicle exhaust are conclusive; diabesity only one of many health signals of the non-walking car-cultists.
Car owner-operators are far worse than devout tobacco smokers are about the carcinogenic air pollution they create around them. They are too lazy to walk (or bike), and too self-superior to utilize public transportation, as well as being emotionally (psychologically) addicted to cars; therefore, they use the same psychological justification products and models, as do the suckling tobacco smokers.
Their life would likewise, have to reach terminal, before they'd even question their action-lifestyle's; the history of tobacco itself the evidence. There are only two things that motivate all human action and inaction: Love and Law! It took a century for everyone to finally accept the dangers of tobacco smoking, and yet the prevalence of tobacco consumption is still nearly a billion people. All the tobacco incinerated on Earth forever, will not equal what the car cult produces daily.
The same self-justification (possibly) going through your mind right now, as a person already decided upon participating in the car-culture your entire life, is the exact same mental-emotional process that goes through the minds of the billionaires that profit from the slow death of Earth (past, present, and future), and that's why we are effectively doomed as a species; at least at the numbers and to the lifestyle we are all currently enculturated by (within the 19th & 20th Century's now spilling over into the 21st).
Without the mind of Messiah (1Co 2:10-16), all human brains will remain much the same; education and experience adding only small amounts of data that will have eternal uses. Today's society operates inside of very small-by-comparison, paradigms; one example among many dozens is the male-centric society: the very concept of leadership centers on this small-thinking model. Proposing an entirely different structure will cause everyone still trapped in the mentality-box (99.5%+) to claim that it will not work because everyone is already too set in their ways to accept or even understand the change.
Very few humans can even imagine life on Earth without governments or leadership or authority; a life without people having power over other humans. Obviously, the Kingdom of Heaven will be void of any form of hierarchy, or gender, or ethnicity, or money, or elitism. The only way for that to be possible if for you to prove you have consciously understood that and and changed how you live as an empirical reflection of that Spiritual enlightenment. Obviously therefore, those of the dominion, cannot and will not be allowed in the Kingdom of Heaven, regardless of the level of their religious consumerism.
I'm a retired-from General Contractor by business, and more importantly, a tradesman; a master carpenter and journeyman electrician, who has been a part of the construction of over 120 new conventional homes during my career than began in the 1970's, and that's not all I did either. And though I was eventually delivered from all that madness, my trade background is relevant to this discussion. I got to see all sides of the issue.
Humans need structures to live in: shelter from the elements and from predation. But as History teaches us, we do not need cars, and humans never should have made processed hydrocarbons, mostly gasoline, available to the general public: That was a major mistake, and scientists now spend careers measuring the consequences of that mistake. Human Impact on the Environment is overwhelming; the empirical evidence too voluminous to debate; the psychology of modernity too obvious to deny or ignore.
Once exposed to the truth, which I'm open to perpetually, I quickly gave up my car (in 2005) and have not personally purchased any hydrocarbons since. I live in an all-electric apartment with a monthly electric bill averaging $20: I buy renewable energy credits as well. But acceptable risk is the only song that reruns through the brains of those needing to justify the slaughter and mayhem, represented in the car-cult. Repentance is just a word for the bulk of humanity; not the defining moment of their eternality.
Designing a self-powered tiny-house for a lakefront, I currently live in a modest 1970's era low-rise city apartment; I walk or bike everywhere, and PT for long-range travel. No death by car for me, nor will I ever be responsible for disabling or killing you or your kids with my car. Roadways have become the killing fields for multitudes, both in auto accidents, and in the health effects imposed upon everyone.
Rather than simply giving up the car-cult; the auto addiction; instead, acceptable risk will likely be the mindset, at this juncture, for the bulk of the blindly enculturated masses (Luke 16:13-15). Justification says: Well, you take buses and trains, and they use gas. We cannot return to the stone age! Parroted rhetoric may salve the consciousness, but only for a season. Self-justification is a wall that cannot be breached: Hence, the certain doom of humans on this planet. It also explains why the bulk of humanity are doomed unto the abyss; the blackness of darkness; Broadway (Matt 7:12-14).
Remember that it takes staggering amounts of natural resources, just to construct, and then operate, a large plant that builds (even) all-electric cars or solar panels. See the Environmental Impact of Mining just for starters. The reason why we are doomed as a species, has little to do with being on or off-grid, which I'm all for, by the way. The electric grid needs to go: abandoned; recycled: Mr. President, tear down that grid! But a radical paradigm-shift in how we exist as humans, will not occur by choice; indeed, it will not occur at all.
In cities, where the bulk of humanity now resides, it cannot be (and will not be) magically unplugged from networks or centralized water systems: Study for yourself the archaic ways humans used to urbanize – E.g. History of Water Supply and Sanitation – then all the links embedded within. But if I had my way I'd end the car-cult and the massive infrastructure it needs, and return us back to a sustainable way of living, which would be and look more like the Garden of Eden paradigm, than the urbanization that now scars this planet owned by YHVH.
But that's the core of the problem, isn't it? People learn, but only to make mammon; to earn ever-more money, and then, to spend it on things that further degrade Earth (the consumerism addiction). Very few people seek knowledge, only to grow in wisdom; instead, the bulk of humanity seek data that validates the lifestyle they have already committed themselves to living, in spite of evidence (climate change denial, as one example among dozens). The Education Industry unabashedly peddles itself as a pathway to capitalistic success; it is codependent indeed.
But humans have been trashing Earth, almost since the beginning; that part is not some new phenomenon. When we study Earth from the past to the present, we can see this occurring, both scientifically, as well as peppered throughout Scripture. The planet itself is already groaning from the human infestation who possess the freedom to live as they please: See Ethical Egoism. But we are still here, only because a (very) few individuals learned how dangerous it was to allow the general public to do things their own way (e.g. selling uranium pellets to the public): Open access to hydrocarbons will prove equally catastrophic, in the near future, with overpopulation out of control.
Earth is incapable of supporting 7 billion people, but you might now be thinking: But there's that many now! However, this was/is only possible, because profit-lusting humans learned to exploit buried hydrocarbons, and now most people consume vast pockets of hydrocarbons, which in turn, made it possible to produce food at the levels humans have only recently experienced (See the graph on human population).
The Loveless cannot think in terms of sharing planetary resources with others, including future progeny. They view all things with the capitalist mentality, a major fruit of Lovelessness. Instead of acknowledging that all non renewable earth resources are finite and thus, volition to live very carefully to conserve those resources for their grandchildren, the Faithless-Godless-Loveless will see gasoline in its dollar worth; that is, how much it costs them to buy. If it is cheap then by all means let us burn it up fast, say, going around in circles; lets squander it, just to entertain ourselves in the here-and-now. Screw all future inhabitants of Earth! I got money, and money means I own whatever I buy with it: I got mine so screw you, future progeny!
Fossil fuels would have lasted for many thousands of years, if consumed wisely and sparingly; over much longer periods of time (thousands of centuries), it would not have been damaging to the biosphere or the lungs. However, we will instead consume most of it in a mere 6 or 7 centuries. Fracking and tar sands, themselves, are analogous to that sucking sound made by your straw at the end of your drink: Peak oil. There cannot (and will not) be 7 billion humans on Earth, when the proverbial hydrocarbon tap comes to a (financially viable) end: And that rapid reduction will be a bloodbath unrivaled (a culling). We, the Elect of YHVH, call this time the end-times.
Earth cycles are necessary to grow enough food to begin with; these are already shifting too fast for us ever to recover from it, on a large-scale, or in the long-term: And the construction of 100 billion solar panels and 20 billion all-electric cars (for some fictional sci-fi future) would also be destructive. The Industrial Revolution centered on personal money-making, not planetary stewardship. It was the unlimited conversion of Earth (itself) into dollar increments, which can then be hoarded and lorded by the power-driven, Satan-inspired wealth-mongers; this is the reason for social ecology.
We are still trying to solve problems from the same mentality that created them to begin with! Huge homes off-grid are still more wasteful (all things considered) than a self-contained tiny-home, or even apartments on-grid. But ego, not data, is what drives the masses as a species; Satan's trinity is ego-pride-emotion; this creates and maintains narrow-minded nearsightedness. Most people would rather die (and have; and will) than to adopt the paradigm of Simple Living.
This is why these masses of people cannot be allowed onto any other planets; why their incorporeal Soul must/will be parked in the outer darkness of deep empty space, until the end of time. It is analogous to why pedophiles cannot work at daycare centers: The pedophile may assure parents that their presence there is no danger to the children; they may be fully convinced of this, themselves; however, knowing they are pedophiles means that we must protect children from them, just in case.
Our Father in Heaven must do the same to protect the children of YHVH (the Elect): YHVH must/will park those who demonstrate their potential danger to others, in the now, because of our power of free-will (volition), which will remain an everlasting ability or power; we are not automatons, now or ever. We were given God-like power, in that we decide our course now, and our fate forever. The very purpose of this life is to demonstrate our faithfulness to follow the teaching of Messiah, via our lifestyle choices, now.
Abandon grow-or-die economics, especially capitalism and its stepchild, Overconsumption; eliminate money or monetary systems all together (which allows for wealth-hoarding, class-systems, concentrated power, the monetization of everything and everyone, and so on); reduce the human population slowly down to under 2 billion (and keep it there); abandon the car-cult, and most of the road networks, and return most of the urban blight back to nature; return YHVH's planet back to the way it came to us (e.g. consider the Garden of Eden paradigm).
We must increase the wild animal populations globally tenfold; use only elevated mag-lift light-rail for long-distance travel, and Food Energy walking plus horse-n-buggy transport for the rest; criminalize the plethora of myths generated by the money-dependent, money-hungry masses (here's one example among thousands still widely circulated to justify or validate the many boastful productions of modernity: Human lifespans constant for 2000 years!)
These acts would take humanity from a certain doom, to a place where we can start hoping for a long-term future as a species. I know-I know; it won't happen: Not even close! Instead, what will happen (and is happening) is the primate masses will continue to overpopulate and over-consume; fights over resources and land will escalate dramatically (James 4:1-4), and the drama addiction that plagues the bulk of humanity, will hunger-lust for war as a solution. What humans now possess for war will be our final undoing. Science will not solve the problem; it was/is the problem.
People will even react to this blog post with self-justifications, rationalizations, and validations, for the lifestyle they currently live, and fully intend to live, here forward (John 3:19-21). It is this very mentality (this emotional juggling) that secures our doom as a species. If you will not radically change how you live, starting now and for the rest of your life, neither will the other 7 billion.
And so you might then think; why bother, right? Hence the certain doom. People can change, but they won't. Most people must change how they live on Earth, but still won't. We can learn truth, but then choose to rationalize it away, blame-shift, remain indifferent, or just ignore it altogether. For us TheoLogical thinkers, this is called Predestination: You can, but you won't; you will know how and have the freedom to change, but you'll justify it away, and continue onward inside the shoebox of your blind enculturation (as opposed to a radical and epochal lifestyle change).
This is a trinity of destruction; these three collaborators are one single problem, because obviously, the oil industry cannot sell a drop of oil to those (myself included) who do not participate in the car-culture. Addiction, blind enculturation, and indifference, are a collective pandemic, here in these end times: They're one in the same.
But the damage to Earth does not stop, just with the people who drive (though it is truly, a demand-drives-supply, global economic paradigm). In order to support the car-cult, there must be roads; an infrastructure that mercilessly scars the landscape, costing in ways that few consider; study the effects of roads on biodiversity for starters, and that just scrapes the surface (pardon the pun), because asphalt also requires staggering amounts of raw materials for road building application, plus the energy it takes to make it and then to place it there (which is everywhere).
But the psychology underneath it all is equally destructive, for humans are masters of self-justification; of validation; of rationalizing away personal actions by redirection; turning the attention to others like big oil. I will believe that you are beginning to care, just a bit, about Earth, after you have abandoned the car-culture and no longer give any money to the sellers of hydrocarbons. Buy local; grow a garden; raise goats; that would be a small but positive start. It can happen, but it won't. The false economy keeps the masses, blindly enculturated drones: Sheeple!
Effects of global warming on oceans expose to us all, just how far and how global, the addiction to cars can affect everyone around the user addicts. As with all addicts, all redirection is just diversion: E.g. the photo's of the smokestacks billowing on the horizon, are used by individuals (psychologically) to minimize the effects of their own car addiction, and its (personal) smokestack tailpipe.
Modernity itself, is but the concluding expression of the (mass) human hatred for the creation, due to the (often hidden) hatred for the Creator, YHVH. The Loveless indifference (or psychopathy) necessary for anyone to continue participating in the car-culture (alone), is stunning to observe, but only for the Elect of YHVH. And even though the science behind the madness is conclusive and massive, the business-as-usual oblivion to it all, was predicted long ago (Luke 17:26-29, 30-33). It's not that driving a car will send anyone to hell; it's that those destined to hell, expose their indifference via the casual participation in the car-culture.
I'm an old man now, so I will likely be spared the tragedy of a certain future that the young will witness and experience; and most certainly what progeny will endure. Therefore, it is my duty to inform; to expose; to say what few others will; to provide revelation as an oracle of Adonai; a speaker for YHVH, via the inspiration of the Indwelling Holy Spirit, which reigns within me.
To be clear, I know it is not possible for me to convince anyone of anything: Only the Indwelling Holy Spirit can enlighten anyone. I simply say/write what the Holy Spirit enlightens within me, knowing in advance that I have no power or authority to change the human mind. But reading (or hearing) and knowing this data will be totally relevant to you on Judgment Day, which will happen for all who reject or ignore or dismiss The Creator; knowing therefore, is an important step when YHVH judges most of humanity. Now, you cannot say to the Judge I did not know, or understand. You do now!
YHVH uses the Elect – from generation to generation – for just this purpose and reason (among others, of course); to expose truth to all. The worse part of all this (for all of YHVH's Elect) is knowing that billions of people will (in the hellishness of outer darkness) rehearse these words, and relive their earthly life, millions of times over; hence, the metaphorical wailing and gnashing of teeth (Matt 8:12; 13:40-43, 49-51; 22:13-14; 25:29-31), which was symbolic language representing uninterrupted suffering, such as burn victims once commonly experienced: Hence, the verbal symbolism of fire and brimstone.
Hell is actually not a place; hell is the utter absence of everything; the vacuum of lifeless, stunningly cold, extreme outer space, where the soul-consciousness of the human masses, without form and void of physicality, will have until the end of time (5 billion years?) to bend the proverbial knee unto the One who created all. But such unconditional surrender is far-far easier, while on Earth, than it will be there, where the evil-driven human masses will join Satan and his demonic masses; the fallen YHVH-haters from perhaps other, now-destitute planets.
The planet-trashers of Earth cannot (and will not) be given a physical body upon another still-virgin planet elsewhere, regardless of how much religion-product they purchase or consume, attend or enable. YHVH will protect the Elect from those who demonstrate their indifference (or Lovelessness) in the here-and-now; indeed, that’s what this life is all about; at least, it is to the precious few (humans) with even a small amount of Faith in the afterlife (Heb 11:1; Rom 5:1-5; Eph 3:14-21).
What we do know is that the bulk of humanity ignored the warnings of Noah, until it was too late; so too, will it be in these destined end-times (Matt 24:32-36, 37-39; Heb 11:6-7; 1Pe 3:15-17, 18-22). Pride is the eternal doom of the masses, and they will take Earth down with them. Thankfully for us purposed stewards of all YHVH created, there's plenty of planets to serve out our eternality (Isa 65:17; Rev 21:1-5). The vacuum of empty space, far beyond all star matter, will be the unfortunate destiny for the souls of the masses on Broadway (Matt 6:22-24; 7:13-14, 19-23; 22:13; John 3:19-21; Jude 1:5-7, 12-13). We have been warned about the end-times; we know that 2nd Timothy states:
Know this 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! (2Ti 3:1-5)
Or summarily: People who just do not care about how their lifestyle actions impact other earth-life. The bulk of humanity seems, not to be consciously aware of being this way; it is the "new normal" of the (now end) times; a character trait, exhibited by the masses among all societies, as the end draws near, just like the anecdotal boiling frog.
If everyone else is participating in the car-cult, then it must be approved by YHVH, right? Wrong! Everyone in Sodom was destroyed: Everyone (adults; kids; animals): You left or you died! So too is it for us, only, not a physical departure (we cannot leave the planet) but rather, a separation or disengagement from the Godless world, as much as that is in our power. We are stuck in this world for now, but we must not become a part of it; we must not allow it to shape our mentality nor our lifestyle.
Like the world they consume and promote, the Xians of Religianity will beguile you with temptation; that you can be worldly, so long as you believe in Jesus and attend church services. This is a dangerous form of Spiritual bondage, from which few escape. Freedom is to see our sin and repent from it; to repent does not mean to feel an emotion, and then continue the lifestyle; repent is to turn away from it; to leave it; to be freed from the blind enculturation that drives the mindless masses, who thus drive, because they are indifferent to it. The result? The cost of a polluted environment? 1.7 million child deaths a year! One cannot be anywhere near the Cross of Messiah, and then continue in this senseless slaughter anymore (Matt 18:7-10).
