Christianity By Consensus?
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few."
It was about three months ago that I watched Niel deGrasse Tyson having a conversation with Del Bigtree on the Highwire show. Mr. Bigtree was trying to understand why. that even with the mountain of evidence that the government funded cov-19 injections have been proven to be lethal or permanently damaging in the majority of cases, that Mr. deGrasse Tyson can continue to push the narrative that these injections are “safe.” It seems that even in the face of the absolute facts and evidence the government approved gatekeepers of information media (that are largely funded by big pharma) continue to push the government permitted narrative that “there is nothing to worry about when it comes to the experimental shots.” Finally, after a lengthy discussion, Mr. Tyson confidently stated that it was the scientific “consensus” that there was no maleficence at play in the medical field.
What this means, is that no matter how many deaths, permanent disabilities, heart issues, blood clots, sudden onset of full blown cancer, and well over a thousand other anomalies that can be connected to these medical experimental injections, the scientific community will continue to look the other way and remain willfully blind to the connections between injections and harm done because those who are pulling the purse strings demand that everyone remain intentionally ignorant of the facts. What this situation leads to is that everyone must say that they agree or suffer the consequences. There can be no debate. This is a deadly game. There are some that even convince themselves that the false narrative must be true, so they refuse what they see with their own eyes. They remain ignorant by choice and their voices become part of the consensus that everyone hears about while the ‘decenters’ are frowned upon and silenced.
This way of thinking is not new. Famous scientists frequently refuse to see what is right before their eyes and deny their calculations that must be amended to fit the “scientific” consensus of the day. Even Albert Einstein was hesitant to tout his findings when his calculations did not reveal a constant and steady-state universe, but instead showed that there was a point in time when there was nothing. He amended his calculations to include a mathematical formula that he called the “cosmological constant.” The consensus of the day was that one could not possibly believe that the creation narrative in the Judeo-Christian Bible was true. It was considered juvenile and unrealistic. Eventually, Einstein could no longer deny his findings and risked losing all credibility in the eyes of his peers by telling the truth about his study of the universe and he eventually removed his amended calculation to explain that the universe did indeed have a beginning and that it was not steady but was expanding.
True science thrives on debates about the factual findings from a variety of critical thinking intellectual individuals. This type of atmosphere rewards innovation and experimentation that strives for excellence. This is the objective thinking where the scientific community flourishes, everyone wins and is better off for it. Falling into a lockstep mentality based on subjective reasoning grounded in manipulated data, nurtures an environment that rewards fear and lazy non-critical thinking people who are happy to go along to get along. This fosters ignorance and can be detrimental to the survival of humanity. This scenario benefits only those who control the narrative devised by a few very powerful and monied individuals. Everyone loses.
The scientific community has long been a breeding ground for atheistic thought, where only the naturalist view is considered. To even venture to speak of the possibility of spiritual intervention in the arena of science can be suicide for those who see the hand of a mighty Creator when they look into the microscope or gaze through a telescope and calculate what they see. After the release of Charles Darwin’s book The Origin of Species in 1859, there was a deliberate cleansing of all professors at the institutions of higher education who did not accept evolution as fact. It was not long before this purging of all instructors who did not agree with the theory of evolution to trickle down all the way into elementary schools. Here we are, 150 years later and the evidence for a Creator is overwhelming, and the manufactured false data touted by those who push the naturalist’s view (theory of evolution) is being exposed. Yet even though there is not one shred of evidence for macro evolution the scientific ‘consensus’ is that the theory of evolution is true. Even many churches have accepted the theory of evolution as truth and teach a hybrid version of this theory that they call “theistic evolution.”
How did we get here? How did we go from the great secular thinkers of all time, Aristotle, Socrates, and others who clearly recognized that there was something bigger out there that started the world around them, to a world that vehemently represses the truth and silences those who seek and discover it? Following the period known as the Reformation (1500’s), many people were highly skeptical of the church and began to distance themselves from it in various ways. Those who were educated thinkers began to believe that science was the only thing that was for certain and that religion was a highly subjective pursuit. Over time, societies became more sophisticated and educated. Unfortunately, the Church at large did not keep up with the times and lost ground in the culture.
The Age of Enlightenment (1700’s) was a period of tremendous growth and discovery, and the Church eventually lost more ground and began to allow for compromise. Many of the philosophers of the day came to the conclusion that truth was not absolute and humanity was in charge of its own destiny. Philosopher Emmanuel Kant stated that there is no way to know if there is an Almighty God, however, that in order for a society to thrive people must act as if there is a God. This philosophical seed is now full grown, and we live in an age of relativistic thought where the truth is not only subjective, but rejected if one does not agree with it. A world where might makes right. The vacuum that has been created in the absence of a moral Creator has been filled with those who hold power.
Sadly, as time marched on, the Church continued to compromise in an effort to lure people back into Church. The Church, for the most part, is no longer much different than the secular realm around it. The Church has accepted, the theory of evolution, sexual promiscuity, LGBTQ ideology, and has neglected the exclusivity of the Christ. Many have been allowed to adopt an ideology that includes a universal form of salvation for all “good” people. We not only have a problem in the scientific community which has cost the lives of millions of people in the past two years, we have a serious spiritual problem. There are millions of people who are Christians in name only (nominal) and are living under the illusion that they are saved and will go to heaven when the pass away.
We have a culture of Christianity by Consensus where people who have been taught this false doctrine reject any challenge to their belief system because this is the belief of the people with whom they surround themselves. In other words, all truth is relative, even your belief about a Creator and the way that one chooses to interpret the Bible is based on individual preference. It is one thing to die physically, but to also leave this earth not having truly understood why one needs a Savior and then to accept Yeshua as your Savior is another thing entirely. The Christian Way is absolute (John 14:6). Truth is absolute and must correspond to reality. The Judeo-Christian Bible is the only way for humans to come to know who God is. Without the knowledge of the Creator, there is no way to understand who we are as human beings as we stand before a holy God.
If we do not comprehend who we are then we will not see the need for a Savior. If we do not see a need for a Savior, then we will create our own imaginary personal gods and system of works-based religion. One must be born again by the Spirit (John 3:6-8). This is not some esoteric ideology; it is required. We cannot just go along to get along. If we truly love others, we must speak Truth no matter what the cost. Medical and scientific consensus driven narratives will lead to physical death and disease. Christianity by consensus will lead to certain death and darkness for all eternity (Matt. 7:13-14).
