Here is a link to one of
the manuscripts mentioned in Dr. Chen'sbio,
and may provide some background to a topic that will be
covered in our show:
Please count me in for tomorrow. On top
of that, I think the spiritual topic we initiated a
couple of weeks ago must be continued, for its
importance is beyond description, and I have a
suggestion for you.
Not all plagues are medically curable. The
best known case was the plague of the first-born. I am a
scientist, and the most “scientific” explanation for that
biblical plague is a categorical denial that it happened.
Mere mortals’ denials notwithstanding, “[t]he Almighty has
His own purposes.” I believe that America is the positive
result of God’s wrath expressed in the bubonic plague,
through religious revival in Protestant Reformation. This
nation was therefore founded not on ethnic, territorial,
cultural or historical bases, but on convictions. America
hence has national ideals. These national ideals are the
very reason for America’s existence, and what separates
America from other nations. All other nations may calculate
and act on their national interests, but not America.
There have always been temptations to seduce
America away from its national ideals, and America has been
put through tests. America had come out from the right side
of the history numerous times, and even in its darkest
hours, the worst some Americans had done previously was “to
ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the
sweat of other men's faces.” Unfortunately, when America
began to make Faustian deal with the CCP’s generous
barbarism after 1989 Tiananmen Massacre, executed by
American presidents from Bush to Obama, and the
establishment behind them, it took America’s deviation from
its national ideals to a whole completely different level –
accepting the evil’s assistance in wringing their bread from
the sweat of other men's faces. “The shining city on a hill”
was brought down to the swamp of “strategic partnership”
with the anti-theist CCP, and the CCP virus came.
