Solzhenitsyn's Prophecy

From Robert P. George:

 

When people forget God, when they come to suppose that they don’t need Him or His grace and guidance, when they fall into the hubristic error of imagining that they are too smart and sophisticated to believe in Him, a catastrophe always ensues.

 

 

 

 

 


Light Work

"I told them I am not for sale I won’t promote evil / They told me I can give you murder, but no Jesus / These devils in the game are hand picking your leaders / That’s why you get a hundred dope boys and no preachers."

Liar's Anthem

“Game full of lies so they hating on my honesty / But Imma tell the truth till they body me.” – (Bizzle, King)

 

Liar's Anthem

 

Record execs make a killin’

“Yeah we could pay you in millions”

Cash to the ceiling, don't trust your conviction or feelin’

You’ll be just misleading some children

Their parents will blame you

You communicate what you've been through

They don’t understand you're a black dude

And one that does rap too

They just complain and they hassle

They would do it too if they had to

 

Pimpin', pimpin', pimpin', murder, murder, sell drugs


A Biblical Theology of Race

We are original man, the Asiatic Black man

The maker, the author, the cream of the planet Earth

Father of civilization and daughter of the universe

 (Popa Wu, Wu Revolution)

 

Cause war like the grandson of Kush

I’m hanging devils’ heads on a evergreen bush

(RZA, Dangerous Mindz)

 

Yakub, maker and creator of the devil. Swine merchant... your time is near at hand. F--- with me and your time will be now. Your presence here effects the mind of my people like a fever. You, Yakub, are the bearer of nine thousand nine hundred and ninety nine diseases, evil, corrupt, porkchop-eatin’ brain!

(Outro Speech, Gravel Pit)

 

The quotes above refer to the Five-Percent Nation but the similarities between the two (Black Hebrew Israelites) should be evident.

Embryology and Science Denial

From The Public Discourse:

In short, Dr. Paulson accuses the HHS of presenting a faith-based affirmation as if it were a scientific position. But it turns out that his denial of the claim that life begins at conception contradicts the standard scientific position, and his arguments against that claim are fallacious (sometimes egregiously so) and inaccurate. Ironically, it is Dr. Paulson, not the HHS, who seems to be basing his views about the beginning of human life on something other than scientific facts.
