Donald Trump is a Classic Cult Leader

This was first published at my blog: http://www.examplesofglobalization.com/2016/10/donald-trump-is-classic-cult-leader.html

Donald Trump is a cult leader, classic in his tactics and beliefs. While not all of Trump's supporters will vote for him because he is a cult leader, a large majority will.

Some of Donald Trump's supporters will vote for him as a protest against the status quo. They will do so even though protectionism may prove to be worse for the economy than globalist trade. I am no fan of the darker side of globalization, the extension of empire to establish world domination, and I have written books on the subject. But, free trade among equal nations in respect for each other is a noble goal that is not often realized. 

We can be certain, however, that Donald Trump wants an American empire that is even more oppressive to the world than we already have. And Donald Trump is a cult leader. He said so when he said:



I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters.

It turns out that his self confessed sexual improprieties have cost the Donald many voters. But his core of white society first people remain. To them, Donald Trump is indeed a cult leader, and they worship the man, who can do no wrong in their eyes. Here is a list of cult leaders, all with at least one corner on what they call truth that draws and keeps their followers. With Trump it is white supremacy, but others have had strong followings:

Having studied at length the life, teachings, and behaviors of Jim Jones (Jonestown Guyana), David Koresh (Branch Davidians), Stewart Traill (The Church of BibleUnderstanding), Charles Manson, Shoko Asahara (Aum Shinrikyo), Joseph Di Mambro (The Order of the Solar Temple aka Ordre du Temple Solaire), Marshall Heff Applewhit (Heaven’s Gate), Bhagwan Rajneesh (Rajneesh Movement), and Warren Jeffs (polygamist leader), what stands out about these individuals is that they were or are all pathologically narcissistic. They all have or had an over-abundant belief that they were special, that they and they alone had the answers to problems, and that they had to be revered... 
From the article containing the above quote, here is just a partial list they have for help in identifying cult leaders. If someone possesses most of these traits, one can be assured he is a cult leader. A religious position does not have to be a requirement, but a doctrine that makes the followers drawn to him, as in superior white domination, is required. Donald Trump, then, is a classic cult leader:

  1. He has a grandiose idea of who he is and what he can achieve.
  2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, or brilliance.
  3. Demands blind unquestioned obedience.
  4. Requires excessive admiration from followers and outsiders.
  5. Has a sense of entitlement - expecting to be treated special at all times.
  6. Is exploitative of others by asking for their money or that of relatives putting others at financial risk.
  7. Is arrogant and haughty in his behavior or attitude.
  8. Has an exaggerated sense of power (entitlement) that allows him to bend rules and break laws.
  9. Takes sexual advantage of members of his sect or cult.
  10. Sex is a requirement with adults and sub adults as part of a ritual or rite.
  11. Is hypersensitive to how he is seen or perceived by others. 
  12. Publicly devalues others as being inferior, incapable, or not worthy.
  13. Hates to be embarrassed or fail publicly - when he does he acts out with rage.*
  14. Doesn’t seem to feel guilty for anything he has done wrong nor does he apologize for his actions.



I urge everyone to read the entire list and spread the word, Donald Trump fits the description of a dangerous and dominant cult leader. Certainly, the president of the United States cannot take on cult status, but Trump will keep the cult followers by using media, to make them pliable to possibly do things to undermine the Republic. Regardless of issues upon which he may make sense from time to time, the personality cult that he deliberately fosters must be avoided, at the ballot box, and in every way possible.

Revelation Timeline

This timeline of the Book of Revelation, written after the destruction of the temple in 70 AD, was originally posted at this static page on this blog entitled Essential Articles/END TIMES:



Revelation

Here is a brief timeline regarding the Book of Revelation. Clearly, the book of Revelation was written after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. The real destruction was to follow.

And clearly also, most of the prophets who were killed were killed in Jerusalem. The Great City clearly refers to Jerusalem multiple times. However, the destruction of the beast does not. I am putting this timeline out there. I believe it has merit and makes more sense than other timelines, especially Dispensationalist timelines which are created out of thin air:

1. Rev chapter 18 speaks to the destruction of Jerusalem but was written after the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. It could speak to the completed destruction after 70 AD, in 135 AD, when Jerusalem was literally ploughed under. In 70 AD, 30,000 He…

Predestined to Hell

The human mind cannot always take in the sobering reality of predestination. We who are predestined are greatful, but sorrowful. We know many we love are not so predestined. It hurts. Paul said he could wish that he would suffer if his kinsmen would be saved.

But it is also that same Apostle Paul who told the truth in Romans chapter 9, that some vessels were created for special use, like fancy kitchenware, and others were created for menial use, to be thrown away.

The truth is, sin is created by those who are not kept from it. The devil and Adam created sin in their acts of defiance, having been permitted to have a will apart from the will of God. They used that will to create sin. It is always that way. Only God is good, and only His Will is sinless.

So then, there are a few predestined to heaven, through God given faith. And there are many, including many who believed in predestination like Calvin and the Protestants, who are predestined to hell. They were created for menial use onl…
