FACEBOOK REMOVES ITS MASK
Thursday, August 25, 2022 by Leona Choy

Recently I have welcomed many new subscribers to my blog posts. So some of you might have missed my previous post about the drastic changes in Facebook. How aware are you that Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, the largest social network worldwide with nearly 3 billion active users, took off his Facebook mask recently to announce a new name and concept change from Facebook to Meta—to help bring the Metaverse to life.

Have you noticed that a new name and logo have begun to appear throughout the media when referring to Facebook? It is worth another reminder.

Why should Christians care? Don’t we have enough to be concerned about with our national and global society turning upside down and “Being Rebuilt Badly” in ways we thought we'd never live to see? The Metaverse is part of that RESET agenda to exploit curiosity about how far humanity can push beyond our 2D of real space and time into the thought-world where imagination creates reality. Or so they are trying to persuade us.

We're supposed to be informed watchmen to see the developing future, alert to courageously sound the alarm, if necessary, to protect ourselves and the next generation. Perilous times are upon us. While we were meekly tucked away at a safe distance from society, muzzled by increasingly decorative masks “for our pandemic protection and the greater good,” deception like fog descended on every aspect of our lives.

Check it out. What do the proponents of Metaverse say about themselves and their intentions? What is this strange attempt at mind control? No, Metaverse is not a bizarre kind of poetry meant to appeal to modern readers. In simple terms, the Metaverse is man's daring attempt at creating a virtual world that is the digital twin of our own.

They encourage us to recreate ourselves in a fantasy world. In this out-of-body experience, you allow your senses to trick your human eyes and brain and induce you to be someone else and be somewhere else in another dimension. Wearing your unique 3D VR headset, you can leave your body behind in 2D sitting on a chair or couch or standing like a mute blindfolded prisoner.

Since the late 1970s and early 1980s, many in the technology community have imagined a far more advanced successor to the Internet. Apparently, this is it! The Metaverse has become the newest macro-goal for many of the world’s tech giants and corporations and soliciting their eager financial investment. “Meta” is the Greek word for "beyond." Their new company brand and logo is the symbol of infinity. “The name Facebook,” Zuckerberg claims, "is too limiting. It just doesn't encompass everything we do anymore, let alone in the future."

Social media apps will still be a focus for Meta but “Enormous wheels are turning and resources are flowing in and the effort is definitely going to be made." The Metaverse is supposed to be the next major advance to revolutionize the way you and I will connect with each other.

Zuckerberg described a grandiose vision of the Metaverse where "you're gonna be able to do almost anything you can imagine. (Compare Genesis 11:6 for God's judgment on the Tower of Babel, man's misguided similar goal.) He predicts that “within the next five years the Metaverse will dictate how we get together with friends and family, work, learn, play, shop, create—as well as entirely new categories that don't really fit how we think about computers or phones today." Some of those initial years have already passed.

Beware! Look for the subtle connection with the pagan spirit world. The innocent user tries to imitate the Creator to remake himself into one or more contrasting identities or avatars—one evil self and one benign if they wish. The original meaning of avatar in Sanskrit in the late 18th century was "descent," referring to the descent of a deity to the earth—typically, the incarnation in the earthly form of Vishnu or another Hindu deity. Later it referred to any incarnation in human form, then to any embodiment.

To keep it simple, in the age of technology, an avatar is an image that a person chooses as his or her "embodiment" in an electronic medium. Out there unprotected in this imaginary spirit world we should be aware that we are vulnerable to the evil adversary and his minions prowling about to devour those who trespass on their territory. (1 Peter 5:8)

We are given the opportunity to escape our real humdrum or dissatisfied or empty lives and create whatever kind of fanciful world we ideally want to live in. Especially one without law, restraints, or inhibitions. The promise of Metaverse is that “we’ll be able to express ourselves in new, joyful, completely immersive ways and unlock lots of amazing experiences.” The Metaverse is a shared imaginary place “wherein special virtual neighborhoods the rules and laws of real three-dimensional space-time are ignored. Free combat zones are even available for people to hunt and kill each other." In this make-believe alternate world, our avatar-self can remake itself without a conscience or any God to answer to. It's a fake utopia in a fake world deliberately disconnected from reality.

On an ordinary website or social media network, you might identify yourself by a username or thumbnail picture. That's acceptable and innocent. But in the Metaverse, you're portrayed by a customized avatar that can appear to move, speak, and/or perform animated actions in your identity. As an avatar, you will have the ability to own, create, exchange, and/or sell your virtual property. This is seen by many as the last step past the "magic windows" of our flat screens on computers or cell phones to a world where one actually “feels a sense of presence" with other 3D avatars occupying the same location. "It'll feel like you're right in the room together making eye contact, having a shared sense of space and not just looking at a grid of faces on a screen," as Meta put it in its keynote message.

Spooky, huh? There are other “presences” in the spirit world that especially the youth have no way to discern and be protected against without being grounded in the Way, the Truth, and the Life of Jesus.

So what's not to like in the Meta concept? We've already been experiencing online education, online shopping, presenting ourselves socially in a virtual way, working online, being entertained online, getting our information and news online—even worshiping online. Without realizing it, we've become intentionally conditioned to welcome "living online" while confined in a sedentary world. The advocates claim that in the Metaverse you can access all of life and activity more fully in 3D by wearing VR (Virtual Reality) goggles. You will have the feeling that you are present in the drama, not watching from the outside.

We are rapidly consenting to thought control while gradually losing our freedoms and initiative. We are raising a generation of children hiding behind masks to whom virtual is now the norm, whose sense of self and core identity is in question. Their gender is confused and changeable and they have little sense of moral direction or self-worth. They are bewildered trying to distinguish between virtual reality, augmented reality, and real life through their five senses.

VR is not only already beginning to change our lives, but Zuckerberg predicted that the Metaverse “will be mainstream in 5-10 years” and eventually dominate our lives. A straight line is being drawn from pleasure to addiction. Digital life will be the center of the future. It will not be about this physical world anymore. Eventually, physical reality will naturally merge with the digital world. People will live, work, and play in the make-believe non-world. If you fear that too much screen time already shrivels up your flesh and diminishes your soul or drains your energy, just wait till you experience Metaverse overload. Is this where we want to end up?

Where's the danger? The Metaverse isn’t an actual location, only a synthetic and fictional one designed for a single purpose. Although not real, it is designed to mess with our minds until we don't know the difference between what is real or not. That's where the evil lies and that's where they want to take us. When we can't distinguish that, we soon border on insanity.

The participant, conditioned and willing, can be controlled, made to do or say anything, even against their morals or faith. As if hypnotized, the mind accepts the false as real. Illusion turns to delusion. The ultimate lie comes from the chief of all liars. “Be not deceived,” Jesus warned us plainly. “Even the people God has chosen [the elect] if that is possible, will be deceived” (Matthew 24:24). Control and power are the goals for “creating a Metaverse, where all kinds of experiences can happen with no consequences in our ordinary world. To escape from the nasty real world is such a gratifying, enjoyable experience that we are soon addicted.

Here's the possible sinister end goal: In an overall wider sense, the Metaverse could be “taken over” for evil purposes and controlled—a virtual “war of the worlds, a war in the heavenlies” could result. The evil entity whom Jesus called “the prince of the power of the air” has been fighting for heavenly and earthly and probably universal control against the Creator God of the heavens and the earth and all that is in them.

We aren't against progress. Technology is neither good nor bad in itself. What's the big deal then? Aren't what they propose and provide for us simply innocent fantasies or games for entertainment? Only an amusing way to temporarily escape the real world where we are temporarily stuck? No!

Knowledge is power. Now that you and I know what they are planning to do to us through social media, let's not consent to be blindfolded with VR goggles as easily as we consented to be masked.

Wow! The New Testament often warns about false teachers coming in to change how we see the world. I can't help but think that if John, Paul, Jude, James, or others were writing today that they, like you, would be warning the church to guard our hearts and minds regarding this very concept. Thank

As a software engineer, I agree the digital virtual world is a double edge sword. It makes things more convenient but at the same time causes more people to forget about reality. Good reminder!

Linda Ann Ann Fumea From Florida At 8/26/2022 5:13:33 PM

We all know that there are individuals in this world who are not 'equipped' mentally or emotionally to handle an imaginary world that invades their psyche. Demons will definitely be using the Metaverse as a passage to 'possession.' God help us! Thank you so much for taking on this subject.

Leona! Do you ever sleep? When rolling out early to add to my own posts, i see you have done another "very thought through" treatise that is no small treatment of the subject. A lot to ponder, as "they" say. Leona, I'm ready to hit 95 and you must not be far behind if not actually ahead of me!
