In today's New York Times, Op-Ed writer Paul Krugman seemed to be out of touch with reality (again), retching about Supreme Court Nominee Judge Kavanaugh. Initially, I just shook my head with disgust as I read his prose but suddenly, it occurred to me: Krugman and his ilk are Tares among the Wheat. Spiritual children of Satan. Spewing lies, half-truths, distortions. Sewing dissension. Creating havoc.
A lot of people in the mass-media these days are showing themselves to be Tares among the Wheat. If you are mindful of that parable, you'll be able to easily see it for yourselves -- every, single, day as they in the mass-media spew lies, half-truths, distortions. Sew dissension. Create havoc.. Here's what I mean:
Krugman dares to write in a piece titled ""Kavanaugh Will Kill the Constitution":
After all, if Kavanaugh is confirmed, we will be trying to navigate a turbulent era in American politics with a Supreme Court in which two seats were effectively stolen. First Republicans refused even to give President Barack Obama’s nominee so much as a hearing; then they will have filled two positions with nominees chosen by a president who lost the popular vote and eked out an Electoral College win only with aid from a hostile foreign power.
So... Kavanaugh, a strict constitutionalist will kill the constitution?
That sounds like some liberal pro-choice logic right there.
Recall that Krugman is the same guy who said if Trump is elected the market will crash and never recover.
He is supposed to be an economist. Got that one wrong. Bigly. It initially looked to me that Krugman is simply a dingbat; but it's worse than that. There's an evil at-play with him and his ilk.
I think this man is a perfect example of the "Tares among the wheat." Jesus, the Christ, warned all of us about them.
Tares look like wheat and are mistaken for wheat; but they're not wheat. They are a foul, weed. Take a look for yourselves:
In the parable of Tares among the wheat The Parable of the Tares (also known as the Parable of the Weeds, Parable of the Wheat and Tares, Parable of the Wheat and Weeds, or the Parable of the Weeds in the Grain), is one of the parables of Jesus, which appears in Matthew 13:24-30. The parable says that during the final judgment, the angels will separate the "sons of the evil one" (the tares or weeds) from the "sons of the kingdom" (the wheat). It follows the Parable of the Sower, and precedes the Parable of the Mustard Seed. According to the common interpretation, the good seeds are the spiritual children of Jesus Christ and the weeds are the rest of the population of the Earth that are the spiritual children of Satan.
Paul Krugman and so many others like him in the mass media, especially a lot of the opinion writers at the NY Times and down at the Washington Post, are SHOWING THEMSELVES to be tares among the wheat.
They are not merely poorly informed, or holders of differing opinion. They make factual declarations that are already proved false, (i.e. ". . . aid from a hostile foreign power . . .") but they repeat the falsehoods anyway! That's EVIL.
Here is the exact parable:
24 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, 25 but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds[a]among the wheat and went away. 26 So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. 27 And the servants[b] of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have weeds?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ So the servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, “Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”
Even if I give Krugman the benefit of the doubt. His side thinks the Constitution is a "living, breathing document," so by that standard, yes, Justice Kavanaugh will, indeed, kill that false notion of it. He will be putting it back to its rightful state as a fixed document unchanged by time and the whims of a bunch of modern crazy people.
When you watch TV news, read print news or even read "media" here online, try to be aware of the Tares among the Wheat. They are very easy to see based on their behavior.
In my opinion, Krugman and his ilk are, quite simply, evil. I see them as spiritually sick, degenerate, lying, destructive, children of Satan.
Thankfully, the harvest is coming. Jesus said that when the Harvest comes, such weeds will be bound together and burned.
I pray Jesus gets to it soon.
