Freedom of thought is fundamental to freedom! However, in today's America, our government and its subsidiaries, the mainstream media and Big Tech, have took to policing our thoughts as our thought police. To refuse to take our government at its word, to refuse to blindly believe whatever the media says, or to refuse to consent to Big Tech censorship, is not only to be told that your thinking is untoward, but also to be tarnished as treasonous, by both today's thought police and their ever-growing mind-controlled masses.
Unfortunately, most Americans are totally oblivious to their own brainwashing, gullibly believing whatever their government guarantees, the media maintains, or Big Tech attest to! When you add to this the persuasive power of suggestion, peer pressure, and public opinion, not to mention the increasing persecution and impending prosecution of all freethinkers, you suddenly realize that we find ourselves in an unprecedented perfect storm of end-time delusion and deception. Yet, our country, and even the church within it, are both oblivious to the fact that we're being swept up in it and swept away by it (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)!
It is no coincidence that Jesus Christ was crucified on Golgotha—the Place of the Skull. As the Bible teaches in several places, the battleground in our lives is in our minds. Whoever or whatever controls our minds, controls our lives! Therefore, the Scripture instructs us to renew our minds and to bring them into captivity to the mind of Christ, not into conformity to the thinking of the world (Romans 12:1-2; 1 Corinthians 2:16; 2 Corinthians 10:5). Only when our minds our mastered by the mind of Christ will Christ have mastery over our lives. Otherwise, we'll be under the mastery of today's mind-controlling thought police, who, unlike Christ, are enslavers rather than saviors.
