There are good secrets and bad secrets. Things to be con­cealed and things to be revealed. Some peo­ple want to know, oth­ers want to hide.

On the other hand, trans­parency is also valu­able. For instance, with­out whis­tle blow­ers, the Amer­i­can peo­ple would never have learned about the tor­ture of Iraqi pris­on­ers of war at Abu Ghraib and the United States would not have recently apol­o­gized for pur­posely infect­ing 696 Guatemalan pris­on­ers, sol­diers, and men­tal patients with syphilis in the 1940s. (For that story, see http://​www​.guardian​.co​.uk/​w​o​r​l​d​/​2​0​1​0​/​o​c​t​/​0​1​/​u​s​-​a​p​o​l​o​g​y​-​g​u​a​t​e​m​a​l​a​-​s​y​p​h​i​l​i​s​-​t​e​sts)

http://​www​.white​house​.gov/​t​h​e​_​p​r​e​s​s​_​o​f​f​i​c​e​/​T​r​a​n​s​p​a​r​e​n​c​y​a​n​d​O​p​e​n​G​o​v​e​r​n​m​e​nt/

In the age of the Inter­net, infor­ma­tion can be shared on a world­wide basis at the speed of light. The recent Wik­ileaks rev­e­la­tions of State Depart­ment com­mu­ni­ca­tions, which were dis­persed through the estab­lished media, have caused a great deal of embar­rass­ment for the United States diplo­matic corps, and may in fact harm inter­na­tional rela­tions. In response, we can expect that it will be more dif­fi­cult for rep­re­sen­ta­tives to oper­ate, and we can also expect attempts to cur­tail free­dom of speech.

They have also showed the Amer­i­can peo­ple the pre­car­i­ous sit­u­a­tion in which we find our­selves by try­ing to bal­ance between com­pet­ing national inter­ests. For instance, we are eco­nom­i­cally tied to China which has been shar­ing tech­nol­ogy with Iran. But we are tied by oil to Saudi Ara­bia whose lead­er­ship wants the U.S. to attack Iran.

Other leaks from other sources have showed us that the Fed­eral Reserve secretly bailed out Gen­eral Elec­tric and other U.S. com­pa­nies to the com­bined tune of tril­lions of dol­lars. The Fed had long said that it needed com­plete secrecy to run the U.S. econ­omy and we can only hope that rev­e­la­tions along these lines will not hurt our inter­na­tional credit rating.

    Many peo­ple heard about Wik­ileaks story these days, but not every­one have clues what is all about. It is not my inten­tion do offer a detailed ana­lyt­i­cal report, but rather to put this land­mark of the his­tory into a spir­i­tual context.

    The cor­po­rate web­sites of Visa and Mas­ter­Card were inac­ces­si­ble at times Wednes­day due to an appar­ent cyber-attack by sup­posed Wik­ileaks back­ers, in response to recent moves by Visa and Mas­ter­card against Wik­ileaks, the web­site that recently released thou­sands of secret U.S. State Depart­ment documents.

    In fact this type of war reminded me of another war that begun long time ago and still hot and fought in many aspects of human life: the Great Con­tro­versy between Light and dark­ness, between Good and evil, between Christ and Satan.

    What are the rea­sons for war? Even though most of our world wars are fought for greed and fool­ish pride, wars are also fought for more noble rea­sons. Some started in order to lib­er­ate peo­ple from slav­ery and to save a nation (US Civil War). Other are started to stop a per­son from com­mit­ting hor­ri­ble mas­sacre mur­ders that would con­tinue if not stopped (WW2 Ger­many). Wars are started to enforce Rule of Law on an area or nation that severely represses the peo­ple liv­ing there to inhu­mane lev­els. (Con­flicts in Africa). In spite of the fact that a war is expected to solve the rea­son it was started, and assum­ing that was a good rea­son, unfor­tu­nately wars on earth does not deter­mine who is right, but only who is left.

    Rev­e­la­tion 12: 7–12 describes the first war… I don’t believed it was fought with swords like in R&H old pic­tures, but was essen­tially a medi­atic war on data, infor­ma­tional war…

    Let’s go for a minute to the study case we started with, Wik­ileaks, and see what are the two antag­o­nisms they face into their con­flict. One party claims the eth­i­cal right of the peo­ple to have access to secret doc­u­ments in order to authen­ti­cate the lead­ers account­abil­ity and the other party claims the ille­gal­ity of the peo­ple to have access to clas­si­fied doc­u­ments, as long as they remained secret. If you can observe into the two exam­ples we are look­ing into right now, Wik­ileaks and The Great Con­tro­versy, we can iden­tify a instance that not only will com­pli­cate a juridi­cal process, but it will make impos­si­ble to solve it into our earthly con­text. The war is not look­ing for who is right from legal point of view, and also is not look­ing for an eth­i­cal solu­tion only.

    First, who is the con­sumer of the secrets when they are revealed into the pub­lic domain?

    Our soci­ety faces 3 lev­els of gen­eral pub­lic:


    Sec­ond, how Jesus han­dled the clas­si­fied infor­ma­tion, he always had access at? In fact before this ques­tion, it will be appro­pri­ate to ask if Jesus really had access to secrets?





    Def­i­nitely Jesus had full access to the secrets and clas­si­fied infor­ma­tion of his time.
    What Jesus did with the infor­ma­tion he knew?
    1. He did not used what He knew against any­body, espe­cially not against his own dis­ci­ples. He knew every­thing about them and despite the con­se­quences that may come from a human prospec­tive, he treated them with love and teach them pas­sion for others.

    Dear Sir:
    Thank you for sub­mit­ting the resumes of the twelve men you have picked for man­age­r­ial posi­tions in your new orga­ni­za­tion. All of them have now taken our bat­tery of tests; and we have not only run the results through our com­puter, but also arranged per­sonal inter­views for each of them with our psy­chol­o­gist and voca­tional apti­tude con­sul­tant. The pro­files of all tests are included, and you will want to study each of them care­fully.
    As part of our ser­vice, we make some gen­eral com­ments for your guid­ance, much as an audi­tor will include some gen­eral state­ments. This is given as a result of staff con­sul­ta­tion, and comes with­out any addi­tional fee.
    It is the staff opin­ion that most of your nom­i­nees are lack­ing in back­ground, edu­ca­tion and voca­tional apti­tude for the type of enter­prise you are under­tak­ing. They do not have the team con­cept. We would rec­om­mend that you con­tinue your search for per­sons of expe­ri­ence in man­age­r­ial abil­ity and proven capa­bil­ity.
    Simon Peter is emo­tion­ally unsta­ble and given to fits of tem­per. Andrew has absolutely no qual­i­ties of lead­er­ship. The two broth­ers, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, place per­sonal inter­est above com­pany loy­alty. Thomas demon­strates a ques­tion­ing atti­tude that would tend to under­mine morale. We feel that it is our duty to tell you that Matthew has been black­listed by the Greater Jerusalem Bet­ter Busi­ness Bureau. James, the son of Alphaeus, and Thad­deus def­i­nitely have rad­i­cal lean­ings, and they both reg­is­tered a high score on the manic-depressive scale.
    One of the can­di­dates, how­ever, shows great poten­tial. He is a man of abil­ity and resource­ful­ness, meets peo­ple well, has a keen busi­ness mind and has con­tacts in high places. He is highly moti­vated, ambi­tious and respon­si­ble. We rec­om­mend Judas Iscar­iot as your con­troller and right-hand man. All the other pro­files are self-explanatory.
    We wish you every suc­cess in your new ven­ture.
    Sin­cerely yours,
    Jor­dan Man­age­ment Consultants

    God gave us a Book that tells all about our enemy, our adver­sary. We are not con­cerned enough to pick up the Book and read about our adver­sary or read about our resources or read how they will attack us, or read how he will use us. Unless we stay in the book and read the book, then the Devil really has a hay-day with us.

    Lessons from Wik­ileaks players:


    2. The com­mit­ment and desire to resist against pop­u­lar trend is part of the strat­egy.
    3. Always the War put a great risk on the play­ers. You may be arrested, wounded or even killed at any time dur­ing the bat­tle. (Assange was arrested on Tues­day)
    4. We have noth­ing to hide and we need to be account­able to oth­ers.
    5. Chris­tians can be accused and blamed by the crowds, even when we can­not be proved guilty of any charge.
    6. You back­bone faith and also the lack of fear will moti­vate peo­ple to take sides into the Great Con­tro­versy set­ting. The issue of wor­ship is essen­tial for every per­son. The ques­tion is not if we are going to wor­ship, but whom? Jesus or Satan?
    7. The glob­al­iza­tion solves the very easy prob­lem of peo­ple polar­iza­tion. In the terms of min­utes, peo­ple around the world are tak­ing sides pro and cons, regard­less their geo­graph­i­cal loca­tion, lan­guage, nation or reli­gion.
    8. Hours before Julian Assange was arrested, the finan­cial insti­tu­tion sus­pended his finan­cial accounts, long before a trial or proved guilty of any inequity. The details of Rev. 13:16–17 are very easy com­ing to light in this pic­ture.

    10. Eph­esians 6:10–18. Put on the whole armor of God.
    May our Lord ful­fils His promise of Rev 21:7, he or she who over­comes shall inherit all things, and I will be His God and they shall be my chil­dren, to every­one here today.
