Of course those of us who have been saved through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ by accepting Him into our hearts to be our personal Savior will be spared this seven year period of Tribulation by being caught up with Him in the Rapture of the Saints (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) but we will not be spared this period of governmental and institutional encroachment upon our privacy as the powers that be seek to gather data on the citizens of the world for the purpose of control and of course ultimate enslavement. Amen.
On my return train trip yesterday from Bob Jones University I found a magazine which contained an article outlining yet another example of this and when I arrived home this afternoon I did a little Internet research and found dozens of web pages reporting on technologically advanced toilets which sample the user's waste material and then deliver the findings to be analyzed. Below are just three of the pages I found which you can read in further detail by clicking on the "Beast 666" icons:
As if we were not already being scrutinized from the Federal level down to the smallest unincorporated burg regarding our financial transactions and our educational records and our religious beliefs we must now face the imminent possibility of these toilets being installed into our homes by mandatory government fiat for the purpose of inspecting even the depths of our bowels which is clearly a violation of the Fourth Amendment's protection against unreasonable search and seizure although I must of course admit that the government has clearly over the past several decades turned the entire Bill of Rights into a mere parody of the democratic entitlement it once was.
On the other hand Brother Randal who was years ago delivered through the grace of God from a lifetime of substance abuse and other sins was led to point out to me the possible benefits to such a system of waste inspection and what he proffered was the idea that the narcotics divisions of the nation's law enforcement agencies would be able to more effectively fight the war on drugs if they had free and unfettered access to the results of the analysis of every resident's urine and excrement but then Sister Sara pointed out that the drug addicts would then urinate and defecate everywhere except the toilet at which time we decided this was a conversation unfit for mixed company and so I would like to put the debate to my LJ readers and ask you if you think mandatory waste monitoring is a good idea or a bad one but I would of course like to ask for serious replies only as some of you have a proven history of being less than decorous in my journal which as we have previously established on many occasions is clearly God's journal. Amen.
