Let’s begin with what is the “Golden Calf” from the Bible. From Wikipedia.
.
“According to the Bible, the golden calf was an idol made by the Israelites when Moses went up to Mount Sinai. In Hebrew, the incident is known as “the sin of the calf”.
.
So, what did it represent? From National Geographic.
.
“It was a symbol of virility and strength associated with the Canaanite god El, and such idolatry would persist into the period of the divided monarchy. King Jeroboam I of the Northern Kingdom of Israel commissioned two golden calves for the sanctuaries of Yahweh in Bethel and Dan, to serve as the Lord’s attendants.”
.
And exactly what did they symbolize? From humansandnature.
“Calves, or more commonly bulls, symbolized strength and prosperity.”
.
How much of this is sounding familiar? Does it sound like what the Cons are selling, what the Nutzis sell, or the Evangelicals and their health and wealth ministries? Everything we now do as a nation, is about a cult. Because after the election of the Prophet Ronald Reagan, and the ideology of the Cons, we turned away from the kindness of Jesus, to the twisted ideology of Jesus supporting racism, and economic abuse. It is incredibly difficult to morph Jesus into a golden calf of consumerism, but they did it. And the nation turned against the kind, caring, and intelligent Jesus. To the greedy, attacking everything, and wanting to take everything, the god of consumerism, and the worship of money and the “Golden Calf.” That, is what really happened in the 1980 election.
.
The Prophet Reagan, convinced enough of us that while Moses was on the mountain, with the Ten Commandments, they could just buy God, and turned to their “Golden Calf.” Since then, we have become not Christians, in the footsteps of Jesus, but those that celebrate the false God of money, while yelling Jesus, and waving their hands to the ceiling.
.
They claim they want to make this a Christian nation, but that is the same cynical lie, as with everything within the now AAM, or the American Authoritarian Movement. Jimmy Carter is a true Christian, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump worship the Golden Calf of money. There is a vast difference between those that live the honest life of Jimmy Carter, and those that live a lie.
.
I truly believe that “God is, what God is” and I see that Jimmy Carter lives the life in which he honestly celebrates his faith. But I can’t believe, that God speak, money-based ministries, and the cynical calculation of racism and the defense of an abuse-based society, while saying all of the right things, and doing the wrong ones, celebrates anything connected to Jesus or God.
