How are we losing our freedom?

About 7 years ago, I told readers about a parable that’s disturbing but filled with truth.

It’s called “How to Catch Pigs.”

Read below or see the video below.

Then tell me what you think.

There was a professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class.

One day while the class was in the lab, the professor noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt. The professor asked the young man what was the matter.

The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s government and install a new communist regime.

In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked: “Do you know how to catch wild pigs?”

The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.

The young man said that it was no joke. “You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free food.

“When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence.

“They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again. You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.

“Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.”

The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening in America and Canada. The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP) welfare entitlements, medicine, drugs, etc. while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.

  1. Sorry Susan!

    The God of the Bible is not going to crush them till Jesus physically returns Matt 24 Luke 21. But what is going to happen first is that wickedness & lawlessness will keep on increasing, which means we will loose our freedoms Dan 8. If you believe in the God of the Bible, then you might want to study it more, so, you can present the truth. Who am I to say this but just a servant minister of Jesus Christ for over 52 years that has started churches all over AM from AK to Wash, DC & taught in Bible Schools & on & on. AM as a nation has been turning from God for decades & we are getting close to the pigs fenced gate being constructed. God raised up & used wicked Assyrian & Babylonian Empires to punish HIS people for their sin & rebellion & so will HE do the same to AM or any nation that knew God & received HIS benefits & then departs from HIM., as AM has done. God doesn’t’ change! Jesus said in paraphrase in Matt 24 that in the last part of the end-times that the Gentile (unbelievers) nations will begin to take over the world & eventually will take over Rev 13 & 17. We are in this time now & evil will increase & prosper. But, our wonderful Savior & Lord will still be merciful to the truly repentant individuals but are nation is in for it Deut 28 & Lev 26. We get blessings or curses from God depending on our obedience.

    May God reveal HIS Truth to you!

    Minister Rick
