If you repeat a false idea long enough, the idea is accepted as truth. This is one of many forms of gaslighting.
Is global warming a real threat or is this just another gaslighting tactic used to create fear, panic, division, and encourage people to give up their freedoms in favor of an authoritarian regime that will have to unite globally under the guise of saving the earth from her idiotic and destructive inhabitants?
My most popular article is Gaslighting from a Christian Perspective. Had I known that it would take off as it did, I would have spent more than an hour writing it. I am glad to know that this term is becoming well-known because gaslighting is a real threat to our personal liberties–a threat that is given a voice through political propaganda, media outlets, and the big-tech industry.
We have been fed garbage and lies for so long that many of us believe the propaganda. This false information carries us away into spiritual drought while simultaneously pulling us downward into the depths of deception. This is the real heatwave and flood we should be concerned about.
Yet, we do not fear or despair as those who have no hope. Fear is a form of worship, and it is Jesus that we fear. Not man or their gaslighting attempts.
I’m not learned in all of the nuances of the global warming debate, but in my spirit I know that something is off with this. This is gaslighting. This is just another strawman–a strawman that is fit to be burned up by the fires it creates and pulled down to the depths of the grave.
Psalm 2 (KJV)
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7 I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
