Living Within The Lie: By Denis Bowden

I may be on my ‘lonesome’ (except for truly born-again believers); however, my personal impression, based in my belief as to the validity of Scripture, is that the WHOLE world is being led by its nose to the slaughter. And we must not overlook the ‘directorship’ of Satan in this bacchanalia of death.

Therefore, what I am about to write immediately places me within the realms of mirthful fantasy by much of the world at large.

I clearly understand this as I accept the commission given all believers in the Atoning Grace of Jesus, ‘that we teach Christ crucified, the perfect paschal lamb of sacrifice, the son of God, given by Himself of Himself, to a Godless world as one sacrificial act of perpetual redemption.’ In giving Him the victory, it requires that each day, we must walk the lonely, narrow road carrying our own personal Cross.

As believers in the teachings of Jesus and the Word of God in general, we hold the view (through faith in the authenticity of the Word) that this world is (prophetically speaking) on ‘borrowed time.’

Mankind, in all his many hues and belief systems, increasingly denies the existence of God, let alone a ‘supreme being and creator.’ Further, the world of man increasingly subscribes to the view that there is no such thing as sin.

So far has this premise recently been accepted in the Western world, that ‘policing’ has become emasculated and toothless. The result is that there is no longer enforcement of many laws that previously were seen to play a significant part in the regulation and the good governance of society. A measure seen to help develop and enhance a sense of neighborliness in community.

Increasingly, many such laws are, in fact, disappearing from the Statute books at both State and Federal level. Offenses that were classified in the serious category of ‘felony’ have either been ‘watered down’ or else swept away completely.

Social reforms, commencing at infancy, have seen parents lose the parental right of discipline of the unruly behavior of their own children. Conversely, they have seen these same rights given to teachers and assorted bureaucracies. Many of the latter wave the banner of Godless Marxist Socialism and are directly focused upon the destruction of the family unit. Particularly those in which Christian values are taught.

What has been the result?

Immediate conflict within the home.

Loss of parental control over the family environment.

Concepts introduced to the home that are not simply alien to the parents (particularly Christian parents) but are anathema. This has led to a viable increase in homeschooling and certainly a move away from the infrastructure of the public school system.

Godless education and the removal of God as the ultimate authority and literal head of our nation have led directly to the collapse of the ‘glue’ that, for some centuries, has successfully held our nations together. That glue was God and the Judeo-Christian ethic of worship/family and hard work.

Was it a perfect system?

No, it wasn’t.

It certainly has had its warts, and these, in turn, have led to conflict from time to time. Yet it was a system that, in the main, within the constraints of a social democratic framework (where family played a dominant role), not only worked but saw our nations prosper.

Historically, the Judeo-Christian ethic and the rule of law itself was based on the Ten Commandments that God gave Moses at Sinai.

At the same time, Godless Socialism has taken the helm of society. And in consequence and proportionately, family and community life has collapsed. This is because Socialism (in giving all power to the State and taking control of all assets) has not been able to replace God and the family with any model that remotely appears to work. Perhaps, because it is based on terror, induced fear and coercion at all levels.

Increasingly, it is forced to resort to State-induced punishments and coercive measures. These include (in China) the deprival of the right to seek work. Surely, this is the basic right of every individual.

China has taken this to a new level of evil.

In order to actually survive, the individual (seen only as a unit of production) must be electronically seen to comport to an ‘approved’ State criteria. In that environment, your life is governed by a point system. Fall below the permissible minimum, and you literally become persona non-gratia, a non-person whom the State no longer recognizes as a unit of value. Under this system, you have no intrinsic value because of your humanity. Your value to the State is bound to that which you are seen to both produce and the degree to which you obey the set norms of the State.

You have no right of existence other than that.

God is thus sublimated and replaced within the displayed edifice of the ‘State.’ And all power is vested in the hands of a ruling elite. None is permitted in the individual at large unless a Party functionary and a tightly ruled hierarchy see that each one of them is always under surveillance by both his immediate subordinate and superior.


It has been manifestly obvious to many of us that there are not only grave doubts as to the origin of the COVID-19 virus but also as to whether it is a naturally occurring viral infection or the result of a ‘State’ having manipulated the genome itself.

A ‘genome’ is an organism’s complete set of genetic instructions. Each genome contains all of the information necessary to build that particular organism. An organism’s complete set of DNA is called its genome. Virtually every single cell in the body contains a complete copy of the approximately 3 billion DNA base pairs or letters that make up the human genome.

With its four-letter language, DNA contains the information needed to build the entire human body.

It is no secret (in fact, the proud boast) that medical science is doing all that is possible to understand the physiological building blocks of life. It is also no secret that this ‘understanding’ has led to a series of virtually uncontrolled experimentation in the study of viral infections. And in turn, some of that experimentation has focused on the concept of biological warfare.

In China, one such center was located in Wuhan, where it would appear that perhaps two types of experimentation were occurring and for two different, divergent purposes. One to validate existence. The other, aimed at its destruction.

Many western scientists have contributed to the ‘work’ going on at Wuhan, and the World Health Organization (W.H.O), led by a Marxist, may now be tainted and compromised.

Of course, China was not and is not the only State rapidly expanding research in this area. A number of countries are attempting to so alter the DNA of mankind as to recreate it in such a manner as to optimize the human capacities/capabilities of mankind to wage war – ergo, the creation of the ‘super soldier.’

Russia is heavily invested in this research, and so is America. Viral research is, from what I have read, an essential component of both diverse aims.

Somewhere, out of this dubious, Godless and doubtful morass of evil, a viral infection is now sweeping the world.

Is it naturally occurring?

Did it escape from a laboratory or some cross-over from a black bat or monkey?

Or is it indeed a man-manipulated genome deliberately released and whose ultimate aim is the destruction of mankind?

I cannot and make no attempt to answer these questions. I state them as a backdrop of factual information as Government (within our nation-States) increasingly appears to have lost control of the situation. However, alongside of this, I offer my view that it is extremely doubtful that they ever were in control of it. Few, if any, serving politicians would bring such expertise to the Cabinet Table.


  • A race to develop a vaccine that would effectively prevent or destroy the virus by stopping it dead in its otherwise inexorable tracks.
  • The business decision to ‘fast-track’ production. Was it tainted by perceived profit margins balanced against more altruistic motivations? Or by political leaders in panic mode?
  • The release of ‘alleged’ vaccines without anywhere near the stringent testing normally done to safeguard the public at large.
  • An emerging number of worrisome side effects, with some leading to death.
  • The co-emergent phenomenon of vaccinated people now apparently going on to develop the virus, apparently unchallenged by the presumed efficacy of the ‘alleged’ vaccine.
  • The attempts to silence the voices of a number of eminent virologists who have challenged both the science and rollout of the ‘alleged’ vaccines.
  • Some of these long-respected and well-published experts have had their careers either threatened or ruined for ‘not toeing the Party Line’ orchestrated by their representative State. Fortuitously, this has failed to silence them, and their voices are now being heard as the alarm bells ring not only in medical circles but even amongst some of our peerless leadership.


It would appear also that the proverbial ‘penny’ is now commencing to drop at the level of the hitherto docile complacent (let’s all race and get the jab) public.

And though I reserve grave personal doubts about the efficacy of all three of the current vaccines, I do NOT and WOULD NOT decry the right of anyone who holds a different view to accept inoculation. At least certainly whilst we still have that choice of free will.

The rollout of the vaccines now appears to be coming to a grinding halt in Australia as doctor’s surgeries that were authorized to inoculate with the AstraZeneca jab are now EMPTY.

For instance, since the side effects from the AstraZeneca became known, there has been a major backlash, and people are no longer turning out to accept the jab. My heart, therefore, goes out to Health professionals whose livelihood is dependent upon them having attained the ‘passport’ to work that inoculation provides them.

What about the rest of us?

This is where it then begins to get ‘interesting.’ There are now millions of ‘doses’ of the ‘vaccines’ in storage. The State (at both State & Federal level) appears to be getting itself into a contradictory flap as to how they intend to handle this.

Already, some politicians are espousing a number of ‘unspecified’ draconian steps to make us accept it.

In my case, I will risk arrest in my personal resistance to this. And they will have to hold me down to administer it. In the meantime, I have begged both my extended family (some who have other health issues) and my contacts to avoid it like the plague until time and further testing dictate that appropriate safety standards have been reached. I do NOT accept that the general populace should be the unsuspecting guinea pigs in lieu of long-term clinical tests in a totally controlled environment.

And ‘No,’ I am not someone with a long opposition to vaccination in general. I have had various inoculations since I was a child and had my normal flu and pneumonia shots at the recommended periods. I had trust in them. I have none in these ‘vaccines.’


Jesus warned us that in these times (the hour now being definitively apparent), such plagues would descend upon us.

On what do I base that assumption?

Certainly on the Word itself in which Jesus described the end of this time when specifically asked that question by His disciples.

The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age

(Matthew 24:3-8, New King James)

“Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, ‘Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?’

“And Jesus answered and said to them: ‘Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.'”

The ‘sorrows’ befall us because, both metaphorically and literally, ‘we have been given enough rope and have hung ourselves.’ 

There are two cups that we are free to drink from.

1: The cup of depravity: NOW FULL TO OVERFLOWING, and mankind has clearly demonstrated his attempt to drain it to the last dregs left in the bottom of the cup.

2: The cup of saving grace: this cup is personified of those who, having received the Word (have then in brokenness), fallen in repentance at the foot of the Cross in the name of Jesus.


Jesus bought that atonement (forgiveness) for us. He freely chose to become one perfect blood sacrifice for the sins of any human being who would believe in Him and so declare it publicly.

God long ago declared that life is in the blood. In the beginning, he gave us an example that one day it would only be a human sacrifice of a perfect human being without sin that would suffice.

He did this by commanding Abraham to slay Isaac and then sacrifice him as a burnt offering.

At the last moment (thus testing the faithful fidelity of his servant Abraham who was prepared to carry it out), God forbade that he do so and substituted a ram instead. However, we clearly see that mankind is given a vision of that which would come with Jesus.

From the Word itself, these two cups are the precursor to the close of the chapter of this present Age. However, many claiming to know and love Jesus have fallen asleep along with their churches. Nominally claiming to be Christians, it is not difficult to identify them:

  • They are falsely pastored in ways clearly apparent to the congregation in general.
  • They readily & knowingly accept, without censure, the impost of an unrepentant sinner to the pulpit, whether that be because of sexual sin or other sinful error.
  • They do NOT study the Word other than when asked to open the Bible to follow the Service, and that…maybe, once a week.
  • Prayer is confined to their congregational following of the Service doctrine in whatever denomination is espousing it. They rarely bother to pray on a daily basis or give thanks.
  • They are not taught prophecy.
  • And eschatology (the study of prophecy) is not part of the doctrine they are regularly taught.
  • Alternatively, they are taught that all ancient prophecies were rendered with the birth, advent, ministry and execution of Jesus.
  • Were prophecy taught (or so attempted in order to confront them), they would vote with their feet, and taking with them their tithe, abandon that church promptly.
  • I suggest that their heresy is conceivably much worse than in someone who does not, in any way, call themselves ‘followers of Jesus, the Christ King.’
  • For ‘knowing’ that they sin, they have determined NOT to change or repent from lifestyle choices. So I am speaking to ‘nominal’ believers who wantonly ignore the path Jesus implored us to follow.
  • This allows them to accept, in good conscience, false teachings that appeal to their senses, and tickling the sense of their own omnipotence, to manipulate Scripture to ‘suit themselves.’
  • Abortion thus is seen as conscionable (particularly with many false pastors now arguing in favor of these sacrifices to Moloch).
  • They have made a pact to accept homosexuality/fornication in general, in all its embracing forms — same-sex unions/gender re-identification and all that Satan has conspired in his attempt to destroy the human race; his age-long plan.
  • Church represents both their comfort zone and the setting of their place at the apex of community life virtue.
  • Paragons of virtue in their own lunchtimes, church attendance is therefore seen as a reputation enhancer and/or a once-a-week period of ‘neighborly’ community and conviviality.

Some tie their ‘godliness’ to ‘good works. This is a dangerous spiritual road if such ‘works’ are transparently performed to enhance ‘self’ rather than performing an act of charitable humility in the furtherance of the injunction of Jesus to respect and nurture the poor and render aid to the sick.

I do not excuse my own shortcomings, for I have been so represented herein – God forgive me!

There are many, many ways in which to deny God and the deity of Jesus. I guess that old pre-Rock ‘n’ Roll ballad, “O Yes, I’m a Great Pretender,” that the ‘Platters’ released in 1955 says it all.

Oh oh, yes, I’m the great pretender
Pretending that I’m doing well
My need is such I pretend too much
I’m lonely but no one can tell

Oh oh, yes, I’m the great pretender
Adrift in a world of my own
I’ve played the game but to my real shame
You’ve left me to grieve all alone

Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal

Yes, I’m the great pretender
Just laughin’ and gay like a clown
I seem to be what I’m not, you see
I’m wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you’re still around

Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal

Yes, I’m the great pretender
Just laughin’ and gay like the clown
I seem to be what I’m not, you see
I’m wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you’re still around

God Speed and prayerfully,

Bon Voyage, my fellow travelers.
