Suggested Conversation Guide
I have created this Suggested Conversation Guide below as a conversation starter. Load this web page as a guide for vital discussion of current events.
Dynamics of Discussion
Note: regardless of your answers, you need to be able to articulate WHY you believe what you do and behave as you do.
Try to Retain Your Composure
ALL thinking persons are stressed now. Focus on keeping your discussions as cerebral (thoughts) as possible and try your best to have your emotions (feelings) under control.
On the other hand, don't allow the fear of an argument prohibit you from TALKING.
Allow each person in your group to remark on each question.
Make it a Real Conversation
A real conversation requires careful listening and asking clarifying questions as well as talking. Don't be in a hurry.
God gave you two ears and one mouth. Listen twice as much as you talk.
How to Handle Disagreements
Disagreeing with someone or someone disagreeing with you does NOT make them necessarily wrong, stupid or evil. None of us knows everything, but we all have our own experiences.
Keep in mind:
- You could be wrong.
- Disagreement may be an indication that someone simply thinks for themselves. This is good.
- Your beliefs and conclusions are a result of the path you have walked. No one else has taken your exact path. Their paths will lead them to differing discoveries and potentially differing conclusions.
Questions for Discussion
I have numbered the questions below to enable convenient reference. If you have a discussion question that you would like to see added to the list below, tap here and send it along.
- Do you believe everything anyone says?
- Do you believe the current US government (the permanent bureaucracy [federal, state & local] not necessarily the current president) has your best interests in mind?
- Do you believe that what happens in world events and nation's governments is influenced agencies and entities outside of the government?
- Do you believe it is healthy for you to wear a mask that interferes with your breathing?
- Do you believe wearing such a mask will prevent you from contracting an illness?
- Do you believe wearing such a mask will prevent you from communicating an illness?
- Does your "gut" tell you that there is something wrong with this current masking issue?
- Are you aware of any doctors that speak out against mask wearing?
- Are you aware that MANY credentialed and educated professionals that have spoken out against the wearing of masks are simply being banned and deleted from the media? Does this bother you?
- Do you believe what is reported on the news; day in and day out; 24/7/365 about issues related to "Covid 19"?
- Do you believe that some people are lying about Covid 19, deceiving people ON PURPOSE? If so, do you have any ideas as to WHY such persons would be DECEIVING people.
- Are you familiar with what is called the "mark of the beast" in the Bible? Revelation 13:16-17:
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
How is what we see in the passage above SIMILAR to the current mask-wearing MANDATE?
- Do you believe in God?
- Do you believe in science?
- Do you understand the difference between classical "science" and modern "scientism"?
- Are you aware of your God-given rights (based upon "Common Law") and protected by the Constitution of the United States?
