Viola Lessons

Unfortunately, Bonhoeffer’s warnings were way too little way too late, with a massive hole in the center of philosophical resistance. But from his lessons we can learn the secret to prevailing against the tide of peer-driven error. Rational sovereign individuality: fully armed, fully trained, fully confident men and women with the fortitude to stand committed to their own rational judgment. Against such people, the Harold Campings of the world remain the circus side show they deserve to be. Against such people, the Adolf Hitlers of the world remain nameless painters, scrawling out their diatribes in deserved obscurity.

Dear spiritual Tyranny reader, the people who are far, far more dangerous, are those who appeal to a transcendent ‘reality’, morally condemn self-appointment, undermine critical inquiry, and insist: “We are right, because we are US.”

      Long?  Moi?  Say it ain’t so?  I’m glad you got something out of the post but if you are looking for brief, might I suggest the Prayer of Jabez?

      Talk about picking your brain like a spicy bbq’d chicken wing… this post delivers!

      You dissect with fine precision what exactly is wrong like nobody’s business. It is very helpful.

      I’m glad you like. I thought the Argument to Nanee Nanee boo boo was hilarious.

      Anyway… funny story. As I said in the article I never subscribed to Frank Viola’s email list so I don’t know how I got onto the list. But neither do I know how I got off. I never unsubscribed. After I wrote this article I waited to see if I would have more emails from present tense ministry … or whatever it is called.

      And I never got one. That means someone from Frank’s thug school booted me off.
