Black Friday "Book Club" get together:)....

I admit this is a bit self serving to say, but I believe it is true nonetheless:)--that only highly intelligent, spiritually discerning, spiritually advanced people are those who regularly read this blog.

As per a request from one of those I'd suggest  (re John Owen books to read):

--"Communion With God" (You could say that being in close communion, fellowship with God is--next to serving His glory--what it's all about, this Christian goal and life.... Owen goes deeply, brilliantly and lovingly into this matter)
--"Temptation And Sin"  (I am a big fan of the process of sanctification, heh. . . and Owen inspires here to truly be about the work of fleshing out our salvation with trembling awe and genuine, joyous motivation.  No cheap grace here. . . .)
--"A Display Of Arminianism"  (Owen carefully, powerfully shows up the temptation of man to place himself at the head--to glorify his own "free will" above God's and how this leads to virtually to all the other heresies and errors.  It is idolatry and covetousness, this wicked urge to displace God as Supreme Leader. . . .)


"The sum of their [Arminians] endeavor is, to prove that the will of man is so absolutely free, independent, and uncontrollable, that God doth not, nay, with all his power cannot, determine it certainly and infallibly to the performance of this or that particular action, thereby to accomplish his own purposes, to attain his own ends. Truly, it seems to me the most unfortunate attempt that ever Christians lighted on; which, if it should get success answerable to the greatness of the undertaking, the providence of God, in men’s esteem, would be almost thrust quite out of the world. The new goddess contingency could not be erected until the God of heaven was utterly despoiled of his dominion over the sons of men, and in the room thereof a home-bred idol of self-sufficiency set up, and the world persuaded to worship it. But that the building climb no higher, let all men observe how the word of God overthrows this Babylonian tower."  --John Owen 

"The soul of man, by reason of the corruption of nature, is not only darkened7 with a mist of ignorance, whereby he is disenabled for the comprehending of divine truth, but is also armed with prejudice and opposition against some parts thereof, which are either most above or most contrary to some false principles which he hath framed unto himself. As a desire of self-sufficiency was the first cause of this infirmity, so a conceit thereof is that wherewith he still languisheth; nothing doth he more contend for than an independency of any supreme power, which might either help, hinder, or control him in his actions. This is that bitter root from whence have sprung all those heresies, and wretched contentions which have troubled the church, concerning the power of man in working his own happiness, and his exemption from the over-ruling providence of Almighty God. All which wrangling disputes of carnal reason against the word of God come at last to this head, Whether the first, and chiefest part, in disposing of things in this world, ought to be ascribed to God or man? Men for the most part have vindicated this pre-eminence unto themselves, by exclamations that so it must be, or else that God is unjust, and his ways unequal."

You've got to read Owen slowly and carefully because of the old English, but man what wisdom!  One of the best. . . .

On another note, I have been meaning for some time to share some of the foundational books I read that really got me up to speed on the globalist agenda for the "one-world" communist/socialist/fascist dictatorship that we see now being snapped into place.  I have an extensive library on this topic, covering it from all angles . . . but would say here are some of the books that have been among the best that clearly lay out the methods, strategies and players involved (and although many of them rather dated now are only strengthened in that . . . where what they warned of is now clearly evident as having been stunningly accurate):

"The Future Is Ours, Comrade"   by Joseph Novak  (This is one of my favorite books written from the inside of communist society in its [USSR] heyday.  It's a bit of rare book now....

"None Dare Call It Conspiracy"  by Gary Allen  ("The best way for the Insiders to eliminate this growing competition was to impose a progressive income tax on their competitors while writing the laws so as to include built-in escape hatches fro themselves."  pg. 60)

"None Dare Call It Treason...25 Years Later"  by John A. Stormer  ("It [advancing socialism in the America] dispensed with the absurd Christian myths of sin and damnation and believed that what shortcomings man might have were to be redeemed, not by Jesus on the cross, but by the benevolent unfolding of history. Tolerance, free inquiry, and technology, operating in the framework of human perfectibility, would in the end create a heaven on earth, a goal accounted much more sensible and wholesome than a heaven in heaven."  pg. quoting Professor Arthur Schlesinger, Jr)

"The Invisible Government"  by Dan Smoot    ("The communists have never subjugated a nation by winning the loyalties of the oppressed and downtrodden.  The communists FIRST win the support of the liberal-intellectuals, and then use them to subvert and pervert all established mores and ideals and social and political arrangements."  --pg.100)

"En Route To Global Occupation"  by Gary H. Kah  ("There is no God and no soul.  Hence, there are no needs for the props of traditional religion.  With dogma and creed excluded, then immutable, unchangeable truth is also dead and buried.  There is no room for fixed, natural law or permanent moral absolutes."  pg.60 quoting John Dewey, father of modern, progressive public education.  "In our dreams we have limitless resources and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands.  The present educational conventions fade from our minds, and unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk."  John D. Rockefeller, 1902 while establishing the "General Education Board" pg59)

"New Lies For Old"   by Anatoly Golitsyn  (Fantastic exposé of the current deception plan of Russia)

"The Politician"  by Robert Welch

"The Naked Capitalist" by W. Cleon Skousen

 "The Conspirator's Hierarchy: The Committee of 300"  by Dr. John Coleman  (How drug trafficking finances the elite, among other startling unearthings....)

"The Fearful Master: A 2nd Look At the U.N."  by G. Edward Griffin

"Betrayal By Rulers"  Michel Sturdza

"The Iron Curtain Over America"  by John Beaty

"Rules For Radicals"  by Saul Alinsky  (You really get to learn their despicable techniques here by the guy who honors Lucifer as "the first rebel.")

"Red Horizons: The True Story of Nicolae and Elena Ceausescus' Crimes, Lifestyle, and                     Corruption"   by Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa

 "The Fabric Of Terror"  by Robert Ruark. (Horrifying accounts of communist agitation and slaughter of "colonials" in Africa.)

"Call It Conspiracy"  by Larry Abraham

"Masters Of Deceit"  by J. Edgar Hoover  (Shows how minorities and "civil rights" have been used to agitate the "lower classes" and certain races to choose socialism as the answer to their plights...and why you always see the protesters raising the Marxist fist and carrying communist flags)

"The East Came West"  by Peter Huxley Blythe (Shows the betrayal of the East Bloc countries' citizens by the West back into the hands of the tyranny under communism.)

"You Can Trust The Communists (To Be Communists)"  by Fred Scwarz (Excellent classic Christian perspective on the evils of communism/socialism)

"What Are They Teaching Our Children"  by Mel & Norma Gabler  ( A good early exposing of how socialist/communist propaganda has been infiltrated into the public education system for a loooong time!)
