    This country is being torn apart by people who believe in the Q Conspiracy Theories. More important to many on RF, Christianity is being torn apart by people who believe in the Q Conspiracy Theories.

    QAnon: The alternative religion that’s coming to your church
    Teaching susceptible Christians media literacy won’t counteract their sudden, widespread adherence to conspiracy theories because these Christians thrive on a narrative of media cover-up.

    (RNS) — It’s a rough time to be a pastor. An election year, national racial unrest and a global pandemic each challenged the usual methods of ministry. Taken together, many church leaders are facing the traditional post-vacation ingathering season with a serious case of burnout.

    But there’s another challenge that pastors I spoke with say is on the rise in their flocks. It is taking on the power of a new religion that’s dividing churches and hurting Christian witness.

    Mark Fugitt, senior pastor of Round Grove Baptist Church in Miller, Missouri, recently sat down to count the conspiracy theories that people in his church are sharing on Facebook. The list was long. It included claims that 5G radio waves are used for mind control; that George Floyd’s murder is a hoax; that Bill Gates is related to the devil; that masks can kill you; that the germ theory isn’t real; and that there might be something to Pizzagate after all.

    “You don’t just see it once,” said Fugitt. “If there’s ever anything posted, you’ll see it five to 10 times. It’s escalating for sure.”​

    It is a tough time to be a pastor. The sword, the unicorn, the final trumpet blower that causes the tribulation lives among you today. Christ warned you of another to come in his name. did you miss christ's warning?

    What do you make of Jesus saying the end times would come in the lifetime of his then living followers, and why would Jesus call a person a unicorn?

    Christ is talking about those coming to understand that God will send another in his name, compared to those that simply do not get it.

    I am a giant on the earth, a mighty warrior. I have no fear when it comes to a war of words. As moses did, he grabs people by the *** and puts them in their place.

    watch for irrational prejudice.


    Num 22:23 And the *** saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the *** turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ***, to turn her into the way.

    Being that God cannot lie, the only bad words are words used in lies.

    Amo 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:

    Amo 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.

    I swear this QAnon stuff is being pulled off by someone genuinely curious to see how far a conspiracy theory can be pushed.
