Spirit of Liberty versus Spirit of Tyranny

Jonsal91 – “The saw that to live by one man’s will, became the cause of all men’s misery. This constrained them to come unot laws, wherein all men might see their duties beforehand and know the penalties of transgressing them.”

Restoring Rights

De Tallagio non Concendendo “We will and grant for us and our heirs, that all clerks and laymen of our land shall have all their laws, liberties, and free customs, as largely and wholly as they have used to have the same at any time when they had them best and fully…” sdocs 88 AD 1297

Pleasure of Tyranny

Paul “For we were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.” Titus 3:3

Plato says that tyrant in his flight from law and reason enters into the untrustworthy, cohabits with slavish, mercenary pleasures. 815

Plato says those furthest from reason are the furthest from law and order and closer to the erotic and tyrannical appetites, a place of tyrants. 814 rep

God of Israel:”It shall be, when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write himself a copy of this law in a book, out of that which is before the priests the Levites. It shall be with him, and he shall read from it all the days of his life; that he may learn to fear Yahweh his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them; that his heart not be lifted up above his brothers, and that he not turn aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left…” Dt. 17:18-20

Mackintosh: “To have produced it (Magna Carta), to have preserved it, to have matured it, constitutes the immortal claim of England upon the esteem of mankind. Her Bacons and Shakespeares, her Miltons and Newtons, with all the truth which they have revealed, and all the generous virtue which they have inspired, are of inferior value when compared with the subjection of men and their rulers to the principles of justice.” A Manual on Constitutional History70 Fulton

—-

Vattel “ But if any one would rob a nation of one of her essential rights, or a right without which she could nor hope to support her national existence, – if an ambitious neighbor threatens the liberty of a republic, – if he attempts to subjugate and enslave her, – she will take counsel only from her own courage. She will not even attempt the mode of conferences on so odious a pretension; she will, in such a quarrel, exert her utmost efforts, exhaust ever resource, and gloriously lavish her blood to the last dropt if necessary.” 454 See quote from Declaration.”

Calling evil good

Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Law of King Henry the First says in wicked avarice they declare white is black and black is white; and in consequence  destroy themselves with the endless sufferings due to wretchedness and misfortune.” 203

HOW GOD RAISES UP TYRANNY
Breaking down Romans 13:1 “Let every soul be in subjection to the higher authorities, for there is no authority except from God, and those who exist are ordained by God.”
Note: Romans says that everyone is subject to the higher authorities for there is no authority except from God. This is a true statement. True authority comes from God, and we are to be subject to that authority, however, not all those sitting in seat of authority (public office) come from God and are a true authority, but entering into office by fraud and misusing public authority, they are not true authority. In fact, they are using civil authority in opposition to the very nature of true authority according to Roman 13:3 “For rulers are not a terror to the good work, but to the evil…” If a Ruler is acting contrary to Roman 13:3, he is not in a place of authority but in the place of tyranny which no one is obligated to submit to, and more, they ought to imitate God, who in justice, brought down Pharaoh of Egypt thereby freeing the jewish slaves from the heavy yoke of unauthorized authority. The American Founders fulfilled this. The colonist were operating under legitimate charters which gave them the right of self-rule. The British parliament tyrannically sought to extend their legislative will over the legitimate colonial governments. It would be like New York seeking to make laws for Connecticut or Maryland for Georgia. Connecticut nor Georgia would tolerate such an idea, and this is how the colonist felt about the English parliament which was trying to do the same thing, and like God, the American colonist threw off King George III, the English Pharaoh.
You say God in control. You are correct, however, this is not good news. The same Mind that is behind good is behind evil. God: “I form the light, and create darkness. I make peace, and create evil.” Isaiah 45:7. This is why evil is so effective. This is why demons like Hitler, Moa, Stalin, Ahab, and other tyrants are able to enter in, manipulate, take control, and destroy a nation. Amos 3:6 “Does the trumpet alarm sound in a city, without the people being afraid? Does evil happen to a city, and Yahweh hasn’t done it?” Our battle is not with the growing tyranny in Washington. Our battle, our goal is to stop God from raising up that tyranny, to stop the All Powerful God from using His infinite force to destroy, devastate, and rob every American and the world of life, liberty, and property. Why is God doing this? Because God holds every citizen in a nation accountable for the criminal acts of their public agents. The crimes of government are the crimes of the people, and God is seeking to punish those responsible for the crimes of the community. The American people in God’s eyes are worthy of destruction, and God is raising up an evil, a tyranny, to fulfill that destruction. The good news of the Gospels is this, although God may seek to destroy a nation, God Himself has shown mankind the way to salvation from destruction. The key to overcoming evil is by obedience to his commandments. ABSOLUTE OBEDIENCE. The Sabbath is a weekly holy or public assembly for reviewing the laws of the land and magistrate who execute them. In other words, God requires the people to stop everything one day a week and do the work of a sovereign of raising up righteous public servants who are under true authority. God also requires the people to be holy by removing the criminal element of society. This criminal element is removed by keeping God’s law. IF the people fail to keep God’s law then the criminal element escape punishment, and God sends in the EVIL ONE to move that criminal element into public institutions including government. This is the work of tyranny.This is the curse placed upon mankind by God, the curse of the seed of serpent striking the heel of the seed of the woman. The People cannot give God the tools of tyranny (allowing the criminal element in society to exist) otherwise the MIND of God will work to raise up a tyrant by the spirit of Satan. You are now beginning to see that God is driving the agenda of good and evil. Evil will seek to convince you that God’s law is outdated or tyrannical, or God does not exist, or there is right to religious freedom from God, or liberty without God’s law is just, or….. But to avoid destruction requires a deaf hear to Satan and ABSOLUTE OBEDIENCE to God because the Will that is seeking to destroy is the same WILL that gave the Bible to mankind and the tools to stop the destruction.

In the Annals of Rome, Tacitus writing of the Roman’s emperors (military dictatorships) called that time an epoch of darkness. What is the nature of darkness? Jesus mentions the nature of darkness when he said, “I must work the works of him who sent me, while it is day. The night is coming, when no one can work” Jn 9:4. This is a simple truth with an ominous dynamic. Darkness is when the sensible, moral, and virtuous are defrauded out of or violently forced out of public institutions and government and can no longer work or contribute to the improvement of their communities because the insensible and criminal element overcoming punishment have seized those precious and powerful public institutions for personal gain. An example of government losing its virtue is seen in the story of Cicero who was a Roman consul, jurist, statesman, and philosopher, and due to the rise of Roman tyranny, was forced out of government and into retirement when Rome’s institution became overran by the lawless. In the rise of darkness, Cicero was beheaded by the devil Mark Antony just as night fell upon the work of Jesus who was crucified by the Sanhedrin. In the darkness where there is no light the virtuous, moral, and god fearing await the fruits of evil in the form of gas chambers, crucifixion, insults and robbery by a government gone rogue to the praise of a blinded society who are seduced to the ways of evil and glorified corruption. Unfortunately for mankind, once these evil ones, these brood of vipers, these demons in human form take possession of a nation nothing can remove them from their extensive networks of control maintained by fraud and deceit except by revolution or foreign invasion by a sensible and virtuous army living in truth and light. Thomas Jefferson wrote, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” dc.309

God’s Solution:Exodus 18:21 “Moreover, look for able men from all the people, men who fear God, who are trustworthy and hate a bribe…”

Vessels of Iniquity

Jesus:” Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitened tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but inwardly are full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Matthew 23:27-28

Plato via Socrates says that a tyrant is really in personal slavery flattering the basest of men. They cannot find the least satisfaction in their desires and are continually in need and therefore is a poor man. A tyrant’s life is surrounded by terrors and full of convulsions and pains. By reason of his rule he become more envious, friendless, faithless, impious and a vessel and nurse of iniquity.” rep. 806

 

The American People – An Abusive and Negligent Sovereign – A Threat to Life, Liberty, and Property. A sovereign who spends hours watching TV while neglecting its duty to be the guardians of the law of the land. A sovereign who spends hours in personal entertainment rather than inculcating the principles of local and national civil affairs. A sovereign who liberally abuses drugs and alcohol rather than to dedicate themselves to the science of morality. A sovereign who is too lazy to attend to public business thereby failing to thoroughly investigate and question the philosophy and moral habits of those they put in office. A sovereign who hands off personal responsibility and control of society for a bribe.for a wish, for a lie. A sovereign who raises up tThree Steps to Tyranny…

Step 1. The break down of the nation’s moral code. Cicero writes that the lost of the great Roman republic to a corrupted government was due to Rome’s failure to punish crimes and the criminal element took over Rome’s institutions. [DE OFFICIIS]

Step 2. The joining of criminal elements. Plato via Socrates “For when men of this sort (lawless) and their followers become numerous in a state and realize their numbers, then it is they who, in conjunction with the folly of the people, create a tyrant out of the one of them who has the greatest and mightiest tyrant in his own soul.” 802. republic

Step 3. Rise of a tyrant: George Washington: “The disorders and miseries which result [from party factions] gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.” [Farewell Address]

Solution to the Rise of Tyranny….
Leviticus 26:3.6 “If you walk in my statutes and observe my commandments and do them,  I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid.”

Plato describes the transformation of democracy into tyranny through excess liberty that becomes a grab of the most cruel and servile servitude. 797

George Washington ” Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally.

This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.” Farewell Address

Plato says a leader of docile mob uses the false accusations to brings a citizen into court in order to assassinate him, destroying human life, and tasting the blood of a fellow citizen, banishes, slays others whiling destroying debts and dividing lands and now an enemy to all becomes a tyrant who is transformed into a wolf. A faction against the owners of property.” 709

Plato writes that there is no city more wretched and miserable that in which a tyrant rules, and none more happy than one governed by a true king. [803. Plato via Glaucon]

Cicero “ What greater advantage one could have, according to the standard of popular opinion, than to be a king, I do not know; when, however, I begin to bring the question back to the standard of truth, then I find nothing more disadvantageous for one who has risen to that height by injustice. For can occasions for worry anxiety, fear by day and by night, and a life all beset with plots and perils be of advantage to anybody?” De.off.b3.84

Cicero de.off{38} IX.”By way of illustrating this truth Plato introduces the familiar story of Gyges: Once upon a time the earth opened in consequence of heavy rains; Gyges went down into the chasm and saw, so the story goes, a horse of bronze; in its side was a door. On opening this door he saw the body of a dead man of enormous size with a gold ring upon his finger. He removed this and put it on his own hand and then repaired to an assembly of the shepherds, for he was a shepherd of the king. As often as he turned the bezel of the ring inwards toward the palm of his hand, he became invisible to everyone, while he himself saw everything; but as often as he turned it back to its proper position, he became visible again. And so, with the advantage which the ring gave him, he debauched the queen, and with her assistance he murdered his royal master and removed all those who he thought stood in his way, without anyone’s being able to detect him in his crimes. Thus, by virtue of the ring, he shortly rose to be king of Lydia. ”

Adolf Hitler “The national government will maintain and defend the foundations on which the power of our nation rests. It will offer strong protection to Christianity as the very basis of our collective morality. Today Christians stand at the head of our country. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit. We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theatre, and in the press……in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of LIBERAL excess during the past few years.” – Adolph Hitler The Speeches of Adolph Hitler, 1922-1939, Vol. 1 (London, Oxford University Press, 1942), pg. 871-872

Joel Response: Germany was a Christian nation. Beginning in late 1800s, there were anti-Christian anti-God campaigns lead by socialists like Marx and Engels.  Hitler’s quote aptly describes the darkness that had entered Germany by 1933 “recent immoral developments in literature, in the theatre, and in the press.” The moral corruptions was not the result of Christianity as Hitler admitted but liberalism “we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of LIBERAL excess during the past few years.” Adolf Hitler never fulfilled the mission to revive the Christian spirit, in fact, he moved in the opposition direct with his godless socialist party and became an enemy to Christians and Jews. Be warned by this quote! The same liberalism that  attacked Christianity in Germany and brought godless socialism and Nazi Germany is now operating in America. Hitler’s statement should be a warning to every America that the war against Christianity by liberals in America will lead to another Nazi, Germany.  The failure of Germany to revive the Christian spirit lead to atrocities, and we can expect the same in America if we fail in reviving the spirit of liberty which is the spirit of Christ.

Thomas Jefferson when penning the Declaration of 1776, America’s social compact, wrote “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The Declaration of Independence in Thomas Jefferson’s mind was the end of slavery in America – one of his complaints against King George was the forced requirement of slavery by Britain on the American colonist. As it happened, Southern states refused to support the anti-slavery clause and the Committee was forced to remove it. Slavery was not born in America but was a 4000 year old institution and did not even face opposition until Christians in England and America forced the issue, and in America this lead to the Civil War and Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment – An effects of Gospel of Jesus Christ within the Christian heart. To remove God from Government is to restore slavery not just on one race but on every race for communism is the product of atheism and is national slavery for all. jb

Cicero “Let it be set down as an established principle, then, that what is morally wrong can never be expedient — not even when one secures by means of it that which one thinks expedient; for the mere act of thinking a course expedient, when it is morally wrong, is demoralizing. “b2.49-50

Versus

Saul D. Alinsky says that any means can be used to get to an end, and that to believe that corrupted ends corrupts the means is to believe in the immaculate conception of ends and principles.  Radicals.24

Note: Cicero is ethical and Saul is dangerously corrupt. The former is based virtue; the later is a doctrine of demons.

Wicked Servants

Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; but when the wicked rule, the people groan.”

John of Salisbury quoting Plato who says that when the magistrate oppresses subjects…if the affliction would be incurable, it is more miserable to live than to die.” 76

 

Proverbs 26: He who gives honor to a fool is one who binds a stone to a sling. 

Evil called Good

Thucydides writes during the civil war of the Greeks acts of evil were praised. The ties of the family were not as strong as political parties which were not formed under existing law for the good of the community but for avarice in violation of the established laws. Oath they swore has the authority of partners in crime. 91

Thucydides writes that in Greece’s civil war praise was given to men who committed an evil act before anyone else, encourage another to an evil who was not inclined to. 91.

David Hardy ‘Juror Testimony’ transcript “he felt like…the jury was on one big party…seven jurors drank alcohol….Hardy stated that on several occasions he observed two jurors having one or two mixed drinks during the lunch recess, and one other juror, who was also the foreperson, having a liter of wine…three other jurors smoked marijuana quite regularly during the trial. Moreover, Hardy stated that during the trail he observed one juror ingest cocaine five times and another juror ingest cocaine two or three times. One juror sold a quarter pound of marijuana to another juror during the trial, and took marijuana, cocaine, and drug paraphernalia into the courthouse. Hardy noted that some of the jurors were falling asleep during trial, and that one of the jurors described himself to Hardy as ‘flying’.   HisCL.526

Tyrant

Sidney “Besides, he is not king who assumes the title to himself, or is set up b a corrupt party; but he who according to the usages required in the case is made king. If these are wanting, he is neither de facto nor de jure, but tyrannus sine titulo (tyrant without title.)

Nature of Evil

God of Israel “I form the light, and create darkness. I make peace, and create evil.” Isaiah 45:7

Amos 3:6 “Does the trumpet alarm sound in a city, without the people being afraid? Does evil happen to a city, and Yahweh hasn’t done it?”

Lamentation 3:38 “Doesn’t evil and good come out of the mouth of the Most High?”

Plataeans plead with the Laceaemonians not to do the evil of killing them and thereby causing evil to themselves. 80.thucd

Note: Why do nations fall into inexpressible evil? Why did Northern Israel fall into a succession of political leadership through the artifices of trickery, forgery, conspiracies, and murder.  Why did the great Roman republic tumble from a great republic into unrelenting political depravities and entanglements through the menaces of Caligula, Nero, and others. Why did the peaceful assemblies of the Anglo-Saxons in England culminate into a weave of  mayhem, murder, and ruthless tyranny by its kings and queens. What is the common factor to such national evil? The common factor is God. The mind and power of God that works to create peaceful and happy communities through the resource of the community, of its virtue citizens, will with equal efficacy raise up a demonic kingdom though a community’s resource of corrupted citizenry. Satan is spirit and a tool of God. Satan is an evil that entangles itself into a community weaving a political web of depravity. This reality is the curse that God put upon mankind when God set the seed of the serpent against the seed of the woman. Whatever resource God is given He will use. If the community is filled with the morally virtuous God will raise up such a city, but if the city is filled with the corrupted God will raise up tyranny. It is the quest of mankind that the mind and power of God be used only for the building of good and happy communities. This requires that a community give God only one resource: good and virtuous citizens. This requires a criminal justice system that creates, protects, and honors the virtuous while chastising, disciplining, and punishing and separating the corrupted. This is the work of the law of Moses and the gospels.  

Nature

Hooker says that when fire consumes the stubble, it does not choose, because the nature of fire can do no other. 71

Note: When man leaves the light of reason and embraces darkness in total the nature of man in the likeness and image of God is totally extinguished and a new man, a beast, takes its place. The nature of this beast is evil, and the beast must fulfill its own nature in all its actions. Such beasts have been seen in history in the likes of Nero, Caligula, Hitler, Stalin and others. They are men who could not stop fulfilling the nature that was separated from the love of God.

Commercial Tyranny – Socialism

Hallam “Patents to deal exclusively in particular articles…..had been lavishly granted (by Queen Elizabeth) to the courtiers [who sold them for profit to the mercantile class]….The grievance of monopolies [even on necessities] had gone on continually increasing; scarce any article was exempt from these oppressive patents. When the list of them was read over the house, a member exclaimed, ‘Is not bread among the number?’ The house seemed amazed; “Nay,” and he, “If no remedy is found for these, bread will be there fore the next parliament.” 961

 

Standing Armies

Timothy Pickering 1787 “In Europe large standing armies are kept up to maintain the power of their hereditary monarchs, who generally are absolute. In these cases the standing armies are instruments to keep the people in slavery.”  302

Overthrowing God and Christian Values

Saul Alinsky writes that a revolutionary radicals must shake up the prevailing patterns of their lives, – agitate, create disenchantment and discontent with the current values. p22 

Paul Joseph Goebbels “What does Christianity mean today? National Socialism is a religion. All we lack is a religious genius capable of uprooting outmoded religious practices and putting new ones in their place.” Hitler’s Propaganda Minister (wiki)

 

Innovations

George Washington “Towards the preservation of your government, and the permanency of your present happy state, it is requisite, not only that you steadily discountenance irregular oppositions to its acknowledged authority, but also that you resist with care the spirit of innovation upon its principles, however specious the pretexts. ” Farewell Address

Patriotism

Cicero “It is, furthermore, our duty to honour and reverence those whose lives are conspicuous for conduct in keeping with their high moral standards, and who, as true patriots, have rendered or are now rendering efficient service to their country…” 149.de.off

George Washington “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.” Farewell Address

Biblical Revelation of Human Extermination

Daniel 3:19-23 “Then Nebuchadnezzar was full of fury, and the form of his appearance was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. He spoke, and commanded that they should heat the furnace seven times more than it was usually heated. He commanded certain mighty men who were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their pants, their tunics, and their mantles, and their other clothes, and were cast into the middle of the burning fiery furnace. Therefore because the king’s commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the middle of the burning fiery furnace. ”  

Jesus “Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and one will be left; two women grinding at the mill, one will be taken and one will be left.” Matt:24:40-41

Note: Adolph Hitler was not the first to throw Jews into the furnace, Nebuchadnezzar beat him to the punch. Jesus description of missing persons can be foreshadowing of not only the Jews but the mentally and psychically impaired who disappeared from society as agents of Hitler’s government rounded them up  to be euthanized.  

Judicial Blindness

Aristotle “Yet most men appear to think that the art of despotic government is statesmanship, and what men affirm to be unjust and inexpedient in their own case they are not ashamed of practicing towards others; they demand just rule for themselves, but where other men are concerned they care nothing about it.” b7.xi.pol

Note: King David without personal censure took the wife of one of his own soldier’s, and to cover is transgression he had the soldier murdered. This folly was not repented until the prophet Nathan challenged David on his sin.

Moderation

Pultarch to Trajan… “I know in your moderation you do not desire rulership, which yet it is always merited by devotion to good morals. you are of course judged so much the worthier in so far as you are seen to be more removed from the accusation of ambition. I accordingly congratulate your virtue…” 66.jonsal Note: America’s first presidents including George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson, did run for office but were chosen based on reputation.  

Due Process of Law

“’nothing ought to be demanded or taken except of right and reason, by the law of the land, by justice and the judgment of the court, without guile…” H94.discourse of hundred court.”

Law of Edward the Confessor “Right and justice ought to rule in the realm rather than the perversities of will; law is always made by right, but will and violence and force are not right.”  holt 93

Executive Force

Paul “For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Heb. 4:12

John of Salisbury writes that nothing in human affairs is greater than princely government who’s duties  encircle, complete, and penetrate everything and which bears the troubles of the whole republic with its immovable strength. 75

Injustice

John of Salisbury writes that injustice is a mental disposition which removes equity from the realm of morals. 62

Discourse – Truth

Grotius quotes Pythagoras “that there are two things, in which man approaches nearest to God, in always speaking the truth, and going good to others,” and he add that adherence to truth is not only the duty of Christians but additionally the abstaining from all vain discourse and guile.  241

Stratagem

Exodus 1:15-19 “The king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, of whom the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah, and he said, “When you perform the duty of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them on the birth stool; if it is a son, then you shall kill him; but if it is a daughter, then she shall live.” But the midwives feared God, and didn’t do what the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the baby boys alive. The king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said to them, “Why have you done this thing, and have saved the boys alive?” The midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrew women aren’t like the Egyptian women; for they are vigorous, and give birth before the midwife comes to them.” 

Jesus “Behold, I send you out as sheep among wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.” Matt.10:16  

Grotius a stratagem to be practiced where it my be the only means of saving the life of an innocent person, or of obtaining some object of equal importance, or of averting another from the perpetration of a horrid design. 240  

Character

Jesus “For I tell you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, there is no way you will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” Matt.5:20

Federal Farmer 1787 “This is a pernicious idea, it argues a servility of character totally unfit for the support of free government.”281

Note: The Pharisee’s who had political authority granted them by Rome sought to protect that authority from the influence of Jesus even to the point of seeking to either entrap, frame or kill him.

 

Sword

Rutherford writes that the law of nature teaches that if  I gives my sword to a magistrate to defend me from a murderer, and if the magistrate shall seek to murder me with the sword given him, I may take my sword from him.” 132

Conspiracies

Diodotus says that the human condition is dominated by some great and incurable passion that drives the people to danger: hope and passionate desire dominate every human event where desire is the leader and hope is the companion. It is desire that thinks out a plan and hope which promises wealth and good fortune. This is the cause of the greatest mischief, and because they are invisible, they are more dangerous than the evils that are visible. 73.thud

Deception

Paul “But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” 2Tim3:13

Achilles says a man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another is just as hateful as the gates of Hades.  148

Divine Right of Kings

Rutherford “And kings to do injustice to their subjects, because by this the superior cannot sin against the inferior, forasmuch as kings can sin against none but those who have power to judge and punish them; but God only, and no inferiors, and no subjects, have power to punish the kings; therefore kings can sin against none of their subjects; and where there is no sin, how can there be a law?”  132

Samuel Adams “In those days passive obedience, non-resistance, the divine hereditary right of kings, and their being accountable to God alone, were doctrines generally taught, believ’d and practiced.” f/const

Note: Divine right of kings is the royalist or monarchist view of political power. When a king is declared above all human laws, he can commit multiple acts of violence against any citizen or subject, and such atrocities against those who he was called to protect cannot be called sin, and without being in sin, he must be called innocent and immune from all penalties; therefore, such  king cannot be held accountable before any earthly tribunal. This ancient principle of monarchy now has sway in America where the President can brand an American citizen a terrorist, and without due process of law, he may incarcerate, torture, and destroy that citizen. This  may be done without sinning according to the laws of Congress that gave  the President the divine right of kings.   

In North Korea, opposition to the supreme leader is treated as a criminal, counterrevolutionary act.” AP

Thievery

Hallam says that Queen Elizabeth “did not abstain from the ancient practice of sending privy-seals to borrow money from the wealthy….It is impossible to doubt that such loans were so far obtained by compulsion, that any gentleman or citizen of sufficient ability refusing compliance would have discovered that it were far better to part with his money than to incur the council’s displeasure.”

Note: The spirit of tyranny in any age tends to paint the same picture. We see today that the socialist attitude to the protection of private property is often violated by the needs of the state, for example, the taking or theft from private banks accounts in order to secure that needs of the banks and government.

Lying

Thomas Jefferson “…by oft repeating an untruth, men come to believe it themselves.” m/l624

Marshal Law

Hallam “We have indeed a proclamation…declaring that such as brought into the kingdom or dispersed papal bulls, or traitorous libels against the queen, should with all severity be proceeded against by her majesty’s lieutenants or their deputies by martial law. And suffer such pains and penalties as they should inflict…This measure by no means constitutional, finds an apology in the circumstance of the time…when within the lapse of a few days the vast armament of Spain might effect a landing upon our coasts….unhappy consequence of all deviations from the the even course of law…No other measure of Elizabeth’s reign can be compared, in point of violence and illegality.” 241

Note: Queen Elizabeth fearing a pretended invasion orders martial law eliminating the common law rights of ordinary citizens. This artifice spirit is operating in America today in the guise of crisis management in the overthrow of constitutional liberties.  

Two Spirits

There are two spirits operating in the world: the spirit of liberty and the spirit of tyranny. The battle between these spirits is the control of society and its power centers such as civil government (See God’s curse in Genesis 3:15) The only way to overcome the spirit of tyranny is by the spirit of Christ; you can see this spirit in the letters of America’s Founding Fathers who wrote extensively on principles of liberty within the framework of civil government; their hope was to overcome the vicious factions that seek to pervert civil authority. Nations, including England and America, are losing to the spirit of tyranny because the disciples of Christ have failed to understand the battle and what it takes to overcome the seed of the serpent. All life, liberty, and property and untold horrors will be the life of the Christian unless he engages evil and defeats it. God’s plan for victory is comprehensible: keep the weekly Sabbath for a public assembly by all the people for reviewing the laws of the land and magistrates who executive them; hold public servants to a godly standard and to the will of the people found in their constitutions; additionally, the Saints of Christ must keep the law of Moses; this law is the only effective tool for removing the criminal element of society and keeping the community holy. Article VIII to the US Constitution fulfills this agenda.

Rutherford “A political society, as by nature’s instinct they may appoint a head, or heads, to themselves, so also if their head, or heads, become ravenous wolves, the God of nature hath not left a perfect society without remedy; but they may both resist, and punish the head, or heads, to whom they gave all the power that they have, for their good, not for their destruction.”  129

Federal Farmer (1787) “ (people)…grow weary with changes,tumults and disorders, and be disposed to accept any government, however despotic, that shall promise stability and firmness.” dc.246

Federal Farmer 1787 “It is natural for men, who wish to hasten the adoption of a measure, to tell us, now is the crisis – now is the critical moment which must be seized, or all will be lost: and to shut the door against free inquiry, whenever conscious the thing presented has defects in it, which time and investigation will probably discover. This has been the custom of tyrants and their dependents in all ages.”  248.dc

Note: Social chaos and instability is a tool for socialist and monarchist for the benefit of consolidating government into a despotism by the free will of the people.

Mass Deception

Socrates makes an attempt to demonstrate mass deception by the power of ‘educators’ and Sophist – through the penetration of mass media (assemblies, courts, and theaters) as if one living with a beast gains knowledge of the beast, and seeks to live according to its behavior. By living with the beast one knows how to approach the beast, to know what makes is savage or gentle, and comprehends its tame and fierce utterances – calling the things that please the beast good and the things that vex it bad; what is necessary to the beast is just and honorable.  729

Principle of a Tyrant

“Let them hate provided they fear.” sen152

Seneca says a king keeps his armament to use for building a strong peace, the tyrant for suppressing great hatred by great terror; nor can the tyrant look with confidence to the hands to which he has entrusted himself. 152

Anarchy

Rutherford “No doubt in those days they had judges but priests and judges were stoned by a rascally multitude, and they were not able to rule; therefore it is most consonant to Scripture  to say, Salus regis suprema populi salus, the safety of the king and his prerogative royal is the safest sanctuary for the people.” 122

Note: Rulers law is a  simple principle. A moral and virtuous people can peacefully rule themselves, but a corrupted and violent people find only rest in a tyrant.

God of Israel “Be Holy”

The examples of Sparta, Rome, Germany, Soviet Union’s slide into murderous tyranny and corruption resulted form the rise and acceptance of moral depravity. When the wicked are allowed to increase and prosper, they overwhelm the institutions of society thereby turning sections of society into havens of despotism and corruption. How do restore lost America? By returning the people back to righteousness while removing the criminal element of society through just laws like those revealed to Moses. This is the way to life and liberty. Today, Americans are losing every sacred right by the over-crowding influence of the wicked. Let us honor God’s law, restore holiness, so that we may fill up our institutions, public and private, with the righteous thereby securing institutional stability for the sake of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

Meek

Jesus “Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.” Matt.5:5

Cicero “Neither must we listen to those who think that one should indulge in violent anger against one’s political enemies and imagine that such is the attitude of a great-spirited, brave man. For nothing is more commendable, nothing more becoming in a pre-eminently great man than courtesy and forbearance. Indeed, in a free people, where all enjoy equal rights before the law, we must school ourselves to affability and what is called “mental poise”;  88.deoff

Coming New World Order?

During WWII, Hitler and the Nazi socialist party had an alliance with Muslims and Islam. They consulted together in destroying Jews by the use of concentration camps and ovens. Unfortunately for Christians, the book of Ecclesiastes says there is nothing new under the sun, in other words, history repeats itself. The current President of the United States confessed to being a Muslim twice in an interview before correcting himself and declaring himself a Christian(according to Islam a Muslim has a right to lie to an enemy.) Additionally, the executive branch, top to bottom, of the federal government is being influence by Muslims even as both political parties, republican and democrat, have moved toward socialism. This is a perfect storm, a new Islamic and socialist alliance. This at a time when the federal government through Femma is building concentration camps in America while Congress writes laws that turn the US territory into a battle field, and with the stock piling of bullets and heavy armored vehicles by the federal government, we can expect marshal law to be in the works which means the destruction of all constitutional rights and military rule. With the American military recently labeling Christians as terrorist, the picture is coming into view; Christians will be the future target of the new world order – a NWO that admires the French revolution with its use of the guillotine. The Book of Revelations predicts that heaven will be filled with the believers in Christ who have been beheaded. I suspect many of those saints will be from America.

Public Service

Cicero “Those who propose to take charge of the affairs of government should not fail to remember two of Plato’s rules: first, to keep the good of the people so clearly in view that regardless of their own interests they will make their every action conform to that; second, to care for the welfare of the whole body politic and not in serving the interests of some one party to betray the rest. For the administration of the government, like the office of a trustee must be conducted for the benefit of those entrusted to one’s care, not of those to whom it is entrusted. Now, those who care for the interests of a part of the citizens and neglect another part, introduce into the civil service a dangerous element — dissension and party strife. The result is that some are found to be loyal supporters of the democratic, others of the aristocratic party, and few of the nation as a whole.  As a result of this party spirit bitter strife arose at Athens, and in our own country not only dissensions but also disastrous civil wars broke out. 85-86.deoff

Spirit of Christ

Note: Societies when failing to inculcate the gospels of Christ become a sure mobocracy, and from this despoiled democracy comes the tyranny of abusive civil authority. God created the disciple of Christ for a singular purpose – to mitigate the evils of misapplied civil force by raising to offices of public trust such civil agents who are anointed with the spirit of public service which is the spirit of Christ. It is the work of  Holy Spirit, the spirit of true public service, that abrogates the irregular passions of ambition and vice so the zeal of justice conjoined with mercy may culminated in holy communities. Those functioning as agents outside the standard of God’s law and His Spirit do grip the throne of God and in doing so have made themselves a perpetual enemy of God for God is at war with those who exercise the powers of sovereignty without divine right. Since government is established for protecting those inalienable rights granted by the Created and for upholding the rectitude of the Supreme Judge, only those who can in good conscience teach and live God’s laws have a right of access to public authority

Accountability

Brutus I (1787) “In so extensive a (American) republic, the great officers of government would soon become above the control of the people, and abuse their power to the purpose of aggrandizing themselves, and oppressing them. The trust committed to the executive officers…….When these are attended with great honor and emolument…so as greatly to interest men to pursue them, and to be proper objects for ambitious and designing men, such men will be ever restless in their pursuit after them. They will use the power, when they have acquired it, to the purposes of gratifying their own interest and ambition, and it is scarcely possible, in a very large republic, to call them to account for their misconduct, or to prevent their abuse of power.”  175.dc

Limited Power

Rutherford “The king shall better compass his end, to wit, the safety of the people, with limited power and with other judges added to help him than to put in one man’s hand absolute power; for a sinful man’s head cannot bear so much new wine, such as exorbitant power is.”121

Standing Armies

Brutus 1 (1787) “In despotic governments, as well as in all the monarchies of Europe, standing armies are kept up to execute the commands of the prince or the magistrate, and are employed for this purpose when occasion requires: But they have always proved the destruction of liberty, and is abhorrent to the spirit of a free republic.” 173.2.dc

Samuel Adams “Every one knows that the exercise of the military power is forever dangerous to civil rights…” f.const

Spirit of Anointing

Jesus answered Necodemus, “ “Most certainly I tell you, unless one is born of water and spirit, he can’t enter into God’s Kingdom….Are you the teacher of Israel, and don’t understand these things?” John 3:5:10

Rutherford “Moses, a prince, desired for the safety of God’s people, and rather than God should destroy his people, that his name should be rased out of the book of life; and David saith, (1 Chron. Xxi,17) “let thine hand, I pray thee, O Lord my God, be on me, and on my father’s house; but not on thy people, that they should be plagued. This being a holy desire of these two public spirits…” 119

Note: The spirit of Christ is the spirit of public service, a spirit of self sacrifice for the public service of others. Moses and David demonstrate this spirit public service and self sacrifice. Jesus chastises Necodemus for not understanding this spirit of public service and that in the government of God on earth this spirit would be required for offices of public trust.

Under Law

God of Israel “It shall be, when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write himself a copy of this law in a book, out of that which is before the priests the Levites. It shall be with him, and he shall read from it all the days of his life; that he may learn to fear Yahweh his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them; that his heart not be lifted up above his brothers, and that he not turn aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left…” Dt.17:1820

Holt says Magna Carta approached as political theory worked to protect rights of the subjects against the abuses of authority by upholding that authority is subject to law. Public authority one hand and the citizens rights on the other was the legal contentions between the noble and king John and the Parliament and Charles I and the Founding Fathers of America and George III.  19.1

Note:  It took the suffering by a thousand acts of tyranny before the nation of England became sensible to right and forever in her conscience shed the false principle of the divine right of Kings thereby reducing the King to a public servant under the authority of law. Amazingly, God revealed this ancient principle to Moses.

Usurpation

Brutus I (1787) “…it is a truth confirmed by the unerring experience of ages, that every man, and every body of men, invested with power, are ever disposed to increase it, and to acquire a superiority over every thing that stands in their way.”   dc.170.1

False Prophets

Seneca writes to Nero “…men are grateful to you; no individual has ever been cherished by another as you are by the Roman people; you are their great and enduring blessing…it is expected that your reign will match the sample you have shown. This would have been difficult if your goodness were an assumed pose and not innate. No one can long hide behind a mask; the pretense soon lapses into the true character. But where the basis is truth and were the roots are solidly planted, time itself  fosters growth in size and quality.” 139.clemency

Jesus “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves. By their fruits you will know them. Do you gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree produces good fruit; but the corrupt tree produces evil fruit.  A good tree can’t produce evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree produce good fruit.  Matt 7:15-18

Spirit of Liberty

Paul “Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” 2 Corinthians 3.17 

Under Law

Chief Baron Frey ”The law is the highest inheritance that the king has, for by the law he himself and all his subjects are ruled. And if the law were not, there would be no king and no inheritance.”   15.holt.mc

Holt says the essential difference between a king and tyrant was a king was made by and under the law, a tyrant is a law unto himself. 

John of Salisbury says the difference between the tyrant and the prince; that the latter is obedient to law, and rules his people by a will that places itself at their service, and administers rewards and burdens within the republic under the guidance of law…”  28

Society under Absolute Authority

John Salisbury paints a picture of society that dwells under an absolute authority; if we examine this picture we can detect the American Union. 1. Priest disguise the precepts of divine law. 2. Elders are ignorant  of wisdom. 3. Judges ignorant of justice. 4. Prelates knows no authority 5. Subjects know no discipline 6. Freeborn disdain liberty 6. The populace despise calm and peace.  23

John of Salisbury says that under tyranny the law is in the hands of the tyrant, and a semblance of liberty is pretended by everyone who pretends to share the will of the tyrant out of necessity and this necessity becomes consent while oppression is gratefully embraced. There is no true and natural liberty for flattery and vanity has claimed everything leaving no room for truth and virtue. 23

Liberty

Noah Webster “A people can never be deprived of their liberties, while they retain in their own hands, a power superior to any other power in the state.”  dc.154

Courtiers

John of Salisbury says that mere consent does not equal to esteem, but one must approve, commend, applaud the insanity; after he had done evil, he is to be praised as though his deeds were good. For just as the identity of wills is an indication of love, so by the way of dissent one may be accused of enmity. 21

 Designing Men

John of Salisbury says that no secrets are as insidious as those which are concealed by the semblance of duty or in the name of some necessity. 20

Vicious Faction

John of Salisbury says that if one fails to contradict, even forsake approval to the delights and defilements of a powerful friend, he is banished from the home and is fortunate if not condemned as an enemy.  21

Not only he who contradicts, but even he who fails to give express consent to, the delights and defilements of a powerful friend is banished from the house, and is fortunate if he is not judged to be an enemy.” 21

Courage

Cicero “But the mischief is that from this exaltation and greatness of spirit spring all too readily self-will and excessive lust for power. For just as Plato tells us that the whole national character of the Spartans was on fire with passion for victory, so, in the same way, the more notable a man is for his greatness of spirit, the more ambitious he is to be the foremost citizen, or, I should say rather, to be sole ruler. But when one begins to aspire to pre-eminence, it is difficult to preserve that spirit of fairness which is absolutely essential to justice. The result is that such men do not allow themselves to be constrained either by argument or by any public and lawful authority; but they only too often prove to be bribers and agitators in public life, seeking to obtain supreme power and to be superiors through force rather than equals through justice. But the greater the difficulty, the greater the glory; for no occasion arises that can excuse a man for being guilty of injustice. So then, not those who do injury but those who prevent it are to be considered brave and courageous. Moreover, true and philosophic greatness of spirit regards the moral goodness to which Nature most aspires as consisting in deeds, not in fame, and prefers to be first in reality rather than in name. And we must approve this view; for he who depends upon the caprice of the ignorant rabble cannot be numbered among the great. Then, too, the higher a man’s ambition, the more easily he is tempted to acts of injustice by his desire for fame. We are now, to be sure, on very slippery ground; for scarcely can the man be found who has passed through trials and encountered dangers and does not then wish for glory as a reward for his achievements.” 64.64.de.off.xix

State of the Nation

Our ship of state is sailing with a broken moral compass and riding through tempestuous winds. The light of  liberty flickers casting a gloomy shadow of the monster called tyranny.  Our electoral process is failing in its republican promise to elect public servants who are willing to serve according to Christ, a spirit of purity, and not according to Balaam, a spirit of corruption. This is due to a deficit in sensibilities encouraged by a secular system that fosters  personal opinions unassisted by divine revelation;  least we forget, the spirit of Christ is the spirit of public service for the benefit of others, and without this anointing upon the foreheads of our civil servants, public authority becomes a tool for the ambitious, for the fulfillment of personal agendas and for a positioning for greater emoluments. In America, there is a cultural apostasy towards true philosophy or love of wisdom and this has emptied our political reservoirs of  those needed God fearing and enlightened public activist while  filling to overflowing a two party system with courtiers of faction who have forsaken  “One nation under God” for  “liberty and justice for all.”   Roman history gives testimony that moral corruption despoils a republic of its liberty and converts it into a military dictatorship in perpetuity until ultimate destruction.  Now facing such a resident evil in our Union of States, the American people should expect a new kind of nation to rise up over the remnants of a once free republic and according to historic evidence, they can expect a despotic government supported by military might.  To advert this imminent disaster, the will of the majority will be required to stand upon the immutability of God’s moral judgments, and in a firm declaration through the legal process,  remove all those civil rights given to  irregular and criminal passions found in man’s fallen nature even while staring down the tactics of intimidation by those vicious adherents to moral perversion. This must be done before “evil had taken root so deep, that it could not be removed” (Quote from Algernon Sidney “Discourse Concerning Government”)

Spirit of Public Service

The spirit of Christ is the sprit of public service. It is this spirit that speaks to the soul concerning the best interests of the community.  It is a spirit of true leadership. Magistrates without the spirit of Christ are guided by a different spirit; they are guided a spirit of self interest and personal political agendas. Restoring anointed leadership is the hope of community happiness. Let us raise to public office only those with the spirit of Christ, the spirit of self denial for the public benefit

Principalities

Ephesians 6:12 “For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

Sidney “They worship what they find in the temple, tho it be the vilest of idols, and always like that best which is worst, because it agrees with their inclinations and principles. When a party comes to be erected upon such a foundation, debauchery, lewdness and dishonesty are the true badges of it. Such as wear them are cherished; but the principal marks of favor are reserved for those who are the most industrious in mischief, either by seducing he people with the allurements of sensual pleasures, or corrupting their understandings by false and slavish doctrines. By this means a man who calls himself a philosopher or a divine, is often more useful than a great number of tapsters, cooks, buffons, players, fiddlers… These are the Devil’s ministers of a lower order; they seduce single person, and such as fall into their snares are for the most part men of the simpler sort; but the principal supporters of his kingdom, are they, who by false doctrines poison the springs of religion and virtue, and by preaching or writing…would extinguish all principles of common honesty, and bring whole nations to be best satisfied with themselves, when their actions are most abominable.  And as the means must always be suitable to the end proposed, the governments that are to be established or supported by such ways must needs be the worst of all, and comprehend all manner of evil.” 435

Prophetic

The address and Reason of Dissent of the minority of the Convention of Pennsylvania to Their Constituents  1787

“From the foregoing investigation, it appears that the Congress under this constitution will not possess the confidence of the people, which is an essential requisite in a good government; for unless the laws command the confidence and respect of the great body of the people, so as to induce them to support them, when called on by the civil magistrate, they must be executed by the aid of a numerous standing army, which would be inconsistent with every idea of liberty; for the same force that may be employed to compel obedience to good laws, might and probably would be used to wrest from the people their constitutional liberties.”

Note: Rising despotism in the American Union has given credibility to the Anti-Federalist fears of loss of life, liberty, and property by the weakness of federal Constitution as presented in 1778.  The Address of 1787 systematically envisions the problems of America in 2013. Today’s Congress does not possess the confidence of the people which is requisite in good government.  The laws of the American Union including the judicial activism of the Court  do no command the confidence and respect of the people, nor do the people support those that violate law of reason and the law of God. We are seeing America becoming internally militarized as anarchy flourishes. It is a growing tyranny of government oppression upon a people who cannot support tide of illegal immorality that violates the conscience and standard of sensible Americans who hold faith in God.

Insurrection

Evolution has never been about real science but about politics. If politics were not involved then creationism and evolutionism would be a dead topic. However, so-called evolutionist have a political agenda, to remove God from the State. And by removing God and His moral law, you remove the limits of the State; you remove the inalienable right of life, liberty, and property under God, and subject these rights to the capricious will of the State – the sure loss of immutable protections. When Mao turned China into a communist state, he removed God and injected evolution. USSR did the same. Additionally, Americans have forgotten they live under a social compact called the Declaration of Independence. This compact declares inalienable rights by a Creator and a national moral rectitude according to a Supreme Judge. Why would America’s public education system teach American children a godless evolution when America’s charter declares all men are created?  Public education, a government agency, is telling American’s future generation that their social compact, the Declaration of Independence, is based on a lie, and that Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Samuel Adam, Benjamin Rush, James Wilson and the other fifty six signers were deceived. This is more than troublesome but an insurrection against the foundations of America. Americans seeking to keep their American Union and their inalienable rights have to wake up to the domestic war that is being waged against them. The People as sovereign need to sit upon the throne of judgment and enforce the principles of their charter.

Wisdom of Suffrage

Deteronmy1:13 “Take wise men of understanding and well known according to your tribes, and I will make them heads over you.”

Algernon Sidney in his “Discourse Concerning Government” describes the absurdity and danger of hereditary monarchy. Hereditary monarchy is when offices of state such as the king, queen, peer are chosen not based on merit, character, experience and integrity but only as a family inheritance. History and experience is indisputable; the result of this dangerous political principle is none other then the reckless endangerment of life, liberty, and property of all the people by the sure mismanagement and misuse of civil government. In Rome it was the corrupted emperor Tiberius who adopted as heir to Rome the murderous Caligula. After the assassination of Caligula, the Roman army raise to power Claudius who adopted the mad Nero. In England, the tyranny of Henry VIII was exceeded by his daughter Queen Mary. It is an appalling certainty that where ever civil offices are inherited and not merited tyranny will follow.

Samuel Bryan 1787  “Augustus, by the aid of a great army, assumed despotic power, and not withstanding this, we find even under Tiberius, Caligula and Nero, princes who disgraced human nature by their excesses…”dc80

Absolute Authority

Rutherford “That which royalist call the prerogative royal of princes is the salt of the absolute power; and it is a supreme and highest power of a king, as a king, to do above, without or contrary to a law or reason, which is unreasonable.” 106

Temptation

Jesus “Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy…. Bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one…..” Matt6:9-13

Note: The temptation Israel fell into was asking for a king just as the other nations had. God warned that such a king, the evil one, would do evil. The rise of kings in Israel began the nations descent into tyranny. Likewise, the Roman people lived free under a republic but falling into temptation they surrendered their sovereignty to one man thereby becoming willing subjects to the evil one in the name of Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula. and etc.”

Rutherford “For then the people praying -“Lord give us a king,” should pray, “Make us slaves, Lord; take our liberty and power from us, and give a power unlimited and absolute to one man, by which he may, if he please, waste and destroy us, as all the bloody emperors did the people of God.”104 Lex Rex

Spirit of Balaam

The spirit of leadership determines the spirit of the nation. A Christian spirit leading a nation will be a just, benevolent, charitable nation with a foreign policy based on “go makes disciples of all nations.” However, if the spirit of Christ is replaced with that spirit of Balaam, a spirit that corrupted Israel from within in order to bring Israel into God’s judgement,  this nation by its adulteries will receive the wrath of God for its violation of divine law. America is no longer led by a Christian spirit but by the spirit of Balaam. The domestic moral policies of Washington DC proves this. The coming wrath of God on America could be a plague or it may be the pulling of the American Union into a injurious war or both or more. How do we remove the Balaam spirit? By restoring the spirit of Christ.

Disadvantage of Tyranny

Jesus “For what does it profit a man, to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?   For what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” Mark 8:36-37

Note: Jesus is speaking of the kings of Northern Israel who, one after another, gained the crown by violence and where overthrown by violence.  Not only did these king’s gain and lose a nation by fraud, violence and deceit, but by their works they forfeited every advantage of the soul. Other examples can be found in Rome such as  Julius Caesar who gained an empire by overthrowing the Roman Republic but died by assassination, leaving a legacy of political corruption and bribery.  Augustus took the empire establishing military dictatorship. Tiberius gained an empire but lost his soul, his profligacy was established by Tacitus. Claudius did evil and died by injections of poison.  Claudius adds to the list of those who gained the world and lost his soul.  Nero’s crimes made him an emblem of disgrace. He was assassinated for his intolerable depravities.  The list is long and runs throughout history.

Epochs of Light and Darkness

Jesus “When an unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he passes through waterless places, seeking rest, and doesn’t find it.  Then he says, ‘I will return into my house from which I came out,’ and when he has come back, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.  Then he goes, and takes with himself seven other spirits more evil than he is, and they enter in and dwell there. The last state of that man becomes worse than the first. Even so will it be also to this evil generation.”  Matthew 12:43-45

Note: Jesus is warning against a political state of a nation that cannot sustain liberty. Rome provides an example. When good leadership guided the Roman people, the nation grew in unity, character, and virtue. Rome cleaned house and when Tarquin the Proud usurped the throne and his son did evil, the Roman people led by the first Brutus overthrew the tyranny and by their sensible nature and virtue established a republic. However, when the people abandoned religion and moral inculcation, they became unenlightened and corrupt and when Julius Caesar overthrew the republic and made himself emperor, the second Brutus and leading men of Rome removed the public enemy, however, the people of Rome having been often bribed by Julius Caesar attacked their liberators and gave support to to Caesar’s nephew thereby establishing the emperor Augustus. The house of Rome was not clean and when Rome removed one evil spirit, Julius Caesar, seven more spirits more wicked came to takes his place: Augustus, Tiberius, Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius and so on”  even by the consent of the people. We see this pattern in ancient Israel. The God of Israel freed the Jews from the tyranny of Pharaoh and Israel accepted the liberty of the Lord under judges, but Israel became insensible to their own freedom and becoming morally dissolute they called for a king like the other nations. Both Northern Israel and Judea suffered under a long list of tyrannical kings.  When the American colonists faced the tyranny of the English parliament, the colonist overthrew the tyranny and established free republics. George Washington called the American people enlightened.  George Washington in his Farewell Address wrote,” Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.”  Today, the American people are facing a rise of tyranny in their own back yard. The question is whether the American people  follow the Rome into a military dictatorship or will  overcome tyranny to keep their republic. The overthrow of tyranny in the American union will be credited to those sensible Americans who held to the teachings of their founding fathers and keep free of darkness by the light of Christ.

Public Servant

King Jesus “… even as the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”  Matt.20:28

Sidney “The question will not then be what pleases the king, but what is good for the people; nor what conduces to his (king’s) profit or glory, but what best secures the liberties he is bound to preserve: he does not therefore reign for himself, but for the people; he is not the master, but the servant of the commonwealth…” 403

Vice

God of Israel “Be holy, because I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:16

Several States in the American Union have legalized the recreational use of marijuana even with studies that state that this drug leads to the use of even more dangerous addictions. How safe is your life, liberty and property if your neighbors are intoxicated, doped up, and mentally impaired, and being so addicted, they are dependent upon the State’s permission to feed their habit. Certainly, their vote, a delegation of sovereign authority, will be used to raise up and maintain wicked magistrates who will support their dangerous addictions. Vattel in ‘The Law of Nations’ writes, ” But if they (public magistrates) corrupt the morals of the people, spread a taste for luxury, effeminacy, a rage for licentious pleasures…beware, citizens! beware of those corruptors! they only aim at purchasing slaves in order to exercise over them an arbitrary sway.” pg 150 The foundation of democracy is virtue. The virtue of the people is the internal law that results in good behavior which is the requirement of self government in a federal republic. However, if the people become corrupted, we as nation go from self government to “survival of the fittest,” from a democracy to a mobocracy, and from the mob a strong man must rise who is called a dictator

Vattel “It is an incontestable truth, that the virtues of the citizens constitute the most happy dispositions that can be desired by a just and wise government.

Seneca of Rome says that we are inundated and overwhelmed by vices, and these do not permit us to gaze upon or discern truth but submerge us and hold us chained down to lust. The prisoners are not allowed to return to their true selves.” pg49

Plato says he must abstain from intoxication for as a guardian he is the last person in the world allowed to get drunk and not know where on earth he is.” 648

Interposition

John “By this we know love, because he laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.” I John 3:16

Caligula ordered an image to be placed in the Jewish temple, and if the Jews rebelled he ordered the Roman soldiers  to destroy the Jews. The governor Patronius, who received the order, refused to perform the emperor’s decree. He stepped between the Roman army and the Jews and said to the Jews,”Yet I do not think it just to have such a regard to my own safety and honor, as to refuse to sacrifice them for your preservation…”

Note: I recommend Matthew J. Trewhella’s book ‘The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates.” It helps explains 1 John3:16 and Jesus’ own interposition on behalf of all mankind.

Black’s Law Dictionary: “The doctrine that a state, in the exercise of its sovereignty, may reject a mandate of the federal government deemed to be unconstitutional or to exceed the powers delegated to the federal government. ” See 10th Amendment.

When the Light Comes…

Thanks for your research. It looks like you have personal interest in the subject. You listed several nations with extensive human rights abuse. I would add to that list those nations that sanction the violation of those laws revealed to Moses by the God of Israel. In this generation of darkness when the light of reason is dimmed to the point of depravity, nations have lined up in willful trespasses upon true life and liberty. The bad behavior of the nations will certainly receive the censure and condemnation by those future generations who have been restored to the light of reason and justice, and in their future study of this era, their hearts and minds will certainly be filled with dismay and pity. From a place of light, the future will peer into the current darkness that gives abundant testimony to the wickedness of this generation. The very nations who lift up banners of self righteousness, flying high in their universal declarations of human rights, do malevolently sanction and willfully undermine the sanctity of the marriage covenant, give praise and tribute to the destruction of a child in infancy by a physician’s weapon, and boast of freedom of speech while quashing sincere debate in the public square by outrageous fines and penalties in order to protect their new social order. Nations are already condemned by the future even before the completion of their outrages. The violent uprooting of “antiquated” social norms created by the light and truth of Christianity and replaced by secular innovations by those dwelling in darkness will raise such a monument to tyranny that future generations will never again seek human rights without divine guidance, and viewing the folly of secular and irreligious confederacies, the enlightened age will give praise and homage to the law of God as the bulwark of their life and liberty.

Prince’s Prerogative

Sidney “He therefore who says kings and tyrants are bound to preserve their subjects’ lands, liberties, goods and lives, and yet lays for a foundation, that laws are no more than the significations of their pleasure, seeks to delude the world with words which signify nothing.” 403

Note: The  motives of those who say “trust government” is tyranny itself.

Rise of Tyranny

Thomas Jefferson “In short, we are likely to preserve the liberty we have obtained only by unremitting labors and perils. But we shall preserve it; and our mass of weight and wealth on the good side is so great, as to leave no danger that force will ever be attempted against us. We have only to awake and snap the Lilliputian cords with which they have been entangling us during the first sleep which succeeded our labors…”m/l537

Note: Thomas Jefferson was correct that the first sleep did not strangle the federal union with strong cords of tyranny.; however, the current sleep that is prevailing across the American Union has allowed a thick fiber rope to strangle liberty which only can be removed by the burning of cities.

Overcoming Tyranny

Luke “Then he goes, and takes seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there. The last state of that man becomes worse than the first.” Luke 11:26

Jesus “For I tell you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, there is no way you will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” Matthew 5:20

Paul “Not only this, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope: 5 and hope doesn’t disappoint us…” Roman 5:3-5

Note: Overcoming tyranny is the work of good character. Rome provides an example, for when the Roman people were virtuous, a  nation of character, their moral sensibilities were sharply offended by the rape of Lucretia by the son of Tarquin the Proud.  The Roman people rose up as one and overthrow the tyrannical monarchy, and by their national character, they were able to established a free republic. However, in late years, when the people became dissolute and licentious, and when Julius Caesar destroy the Roman constitution and declared himself emperor, he was assassinated, but the Roman people failed to have the character to remain free and Julius was replaced with a flood of corrupted pretenders.   The Kingdom of God is based on self government which is to say that the government of God begins within. The city of God is laid upon this firm foundation of moral character. Paul writes correctly that Christians who are suffering under tyranny will by God’s spirit persevere and in their good character they may have hope, and we say that this hope is the same hope that Rome had when they overthrew a tyrant and established a mighty empire. It is this hope realized by the character of English people who were able to overcame the tyrant King John and established the Magna Carta, and it is such a character the raised up the Bill of Rights by the removal of King Charles, and that protected American liberty from English usurpation by the Declaration of Independence.

Foreign Assistance

Vattel “But if the prince, by violating the fundamental laws, gives his subjects a legal right to resist him, – if tyranny becoming insupportable obliges the nation to rise in their own defense, – every foreign power has a right to succour an oppressed people who implore their assistance.” 290.2

Vattel “He who assists an odious tyrant, – he who declares for an unjust and rebellious people, – violates his duty.” 291

Vattel  “But when the bands of the political society are broken, or a least suspended, between the sovereign and his people, the contending parties may then be considered as two distinct powers; and since they are both equally independent of all foreign authority, nobody has a right to judge them.” 291.1

Light in the Darkness

Jesus in Matthew 5:15 “Neither do you light a lamp, and put it under a measuring basket, but on a stand; and it shines to all who are in the house.”

Seneca says the true man will not impair his virtue or hide it away when danger threatens from all sides, when weapons and chains clang all about him.” 87 *

Note: It is easy to be the light when it is day, but reputations are made by being a light in the terror of darkness.

 Setting up Sovereignty

Rutherford “The king is only a steward, and defender of the laws of the kingdom, not a proprietor, because he has not power to make away the empire, cities, towns countries, and the goods of the subjects.”

1 King 9:10-11 “… King Solomon gave Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee.”

Note: When King Solomon gave away twenty cities, he gave away the property belonging to the people of Israel.  Only the people can choose jurisdictions of government.

Tyranny Within

Sidney “And as those princes who are most barbarously savage against their own people, are usually most gentle to the enemies of their country.” 256

Note: Sidney makes note that King Saul spared Israel’s enemy the Amalekites and yet he was cruel to his own people, for example, Saul’s  slaughter of priests. Today, we have an administration in Washington DC that does not hesitate to sanction the slaughter of American prenatal infants while sending foreign aid and arms to a foreign nation that considers the United States an enemy (See Saudi Arabia’s comment on war with America).

Work of Tyranny

In America the body of the Constitution enumerates power to the federal head (Washington) while the Bill of Rights limits that power, specifically, thus reserving all other power to the states (Until the incorporation doctrine of the 14th amendment). If Congress legislates a law and by controversy and by the power of judicial review, federal judges will determine if in fact the law is constitutional. If the law is not constitutional, the Court’s opinion stands as the legal interpretation of that clause or phrase of the Constitution which includes the Bill of Rights. Unfortunately, by the power of judicial review, the Court has turned into a uncontrollable national legislature that is writing national law without any checks or even the possibility of an appeal – not even Congress can overturn Court made law made by constitutional interpretation. Additionally, we have seen federal and state laws arbitrary struck down based on the power of judicial review supported by a judicially made tool called “substantive due process”. “Substantive due process” is a judicial invention that incorporates “due process” (which historically is the legal process according to the law of the land) with fundamental rights, rights according to the Court’s opinion.  ‘Substantive due process” has become a Court legislative tool for promoting its own political agenda and cultural revolution in the name of “ordered liberty”, “fairness”, and host of other abstract nouns. A powerful oligarchy has emerged in the American Union where minority factions sharing the Court’s ideology can usurp the standing will of the American people to create law and precedence. An past example of this is Roe v Wade. It took one lawyer with one client standing before the Supreme Court to overturn the legislative will of fifty states. A recent example is the overturning of parts of the Defense of Marriage Act. This problem is so prevalent that the Court has made itself to be the definer of American culture. It’s view of modern tyranny.

Violating the Social Compact

Nations are built upon a social compact by the oath of allegiance. This allegiance is an oath that requires obedience to the laws by the people in exchange for protection of life, liberty and property by the ruler/sovereign. This oath is fundamental to the creation of a nation, the foundation to national existence. When any party to the oath breaks their part of the agreement then the compact is dissolved. For example, if a man commits murder, he not only breaks God’s law but also the agreement with society to protect life. The result is that not only the murderer loses membership in the community by breaking the agreement but by God’s judgment, he receives the death penalty. In the same light, if a nation’s rulers, its sovereign, fail to defend life, liberty, and property through its laws and the execution of them then it effectively breaks its oath, shatters its allegiance, and voids the compact, and the people are no longer part of a community, but they are thrown back into a state of nature, a state without government. Fundamentally, this broken allegiance, this violation of the social compact, is where the European nations, the United States, and similar nations now stand. These nations regularly fail to punish those who break the laws of God and nature, and in their failings, nations have forsaken the protection of life, liberty and property thereby ending the social compact; the populous of these nations have been returned to the state of nature. The evidence of this is clear to every sensible and unprejudiced mind. First, these nations fail to protect infants in the womb. God’s law and nature is clear, infants in the womb is protected life, and any picture of a prenatal infant supports this truth, and in this these nations their is no protection, a violation of the oath. These nations also fail to protect the marriage covenant which is essential to the protection of children. In Ancient Sparta, where homosexuality had the sanction of the state, the military men of Sparta seduced as matter of state policy twelve year old boys. The spirit of homosexuality is clearly a pedophile spirit, and nations that fail to arrest this spirit violate their sacred oath and break their compact.  Because such nations have crossed over into corruption calling good evil and evil good, they can not even protect liberty of speech.

From CP WORLD NEWS Report:

Tony Miano, a retired deputy sheriff from Los Angeles County, Calif., was arrested in London, England, earlier this week for preaching on abstaining form sexual immorality, both heterosexual and homosexual, in downtown Wimbledon. He was found to be in violation of Public Order Act Section 5, for “using homophobic speech that could cause people anxiety, distress, alarm or insult.”

Did someone forget to tell those in London that the purpose of the Bible is to cause “anxiety, distress, alarm…” to those who violate the laws of God and nature and which such violations annul the social compact? The real insult is arresting someone for trying to save London from the darkness that has taken over the city.

When writing of corrupted Rome, while crumbling under tyranny, Tacitus spoke of Rome as in an epoch of darkness. The best definition of darkness was given by Jesus when hanging on the cross. He said,” Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” Jesus’ statement was not a spur of the moment comment but a critical assessment of the event. Darkness is a national condition were “they know not what they do,” where great abuses, injustice, and insensible actions happen with general approval. The darkness of Mao’s China, Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Soviet Union was not one man corrupting and turning a whole nation toward evil but evil itself had support by the controlling powers of society. Today, nations are falling into this darkness, into tyranny, and the only way out  is to move out of the darkness and into the light of Jesus Christ; the very name Darkness hates. If you were just offended by this name, then you have moved into the darkness and all your efforts are now working toward the dissolution of your nation by your approval of criminal violations against human nature. You are fostering anarchy,  the fountainhead of tyranny, and through blind acceptance of political correctness over immutable truth, you are moving your community out of the state of civil society, past the state of nature, and into the a state of enslavement.

What even happened to those common law precedents recorded by Sir William Blackstone? It declared adultery, homosexuality, and abortion to be crimes. Did some political party in England sweep judicial precedent under the rug in the name of political correctness. I encourage those in England and United States and other nations to refuse to be deceived into tyranny, revolt against evil, restore the light of God’s law.

 The Inalienable Controversy

The ‘Universal Declaration of Human Rights’ begins, “Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world…”

The great controversy begins with the definition of “inalienable rights” as the “foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.” Shall “inalienable” be defined by the secular community and legislated and adjudicated according to their sense of justice and equity which expands inalienable rights into human rights as universal and encompassing as a woman’s right to an abortion, a right to “being together”in such a manner as polygamy and homosexuality, and according to a member of the United Nations, Netherlands, the right of prostitution, and with other members, including the some states in the American Union, the public access and sale of narcotics such as marijuana. Or will “inalienable” be directly linked to a divine Creator as recited in America’s Declaration of Independence which says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”and according the signers of America’s social compact, human rights are limited according to the “rectitude of the Supreme Judge.” America’s social compact declares a higher law exists over man, a law superior to the will and passions of man, which not even a majority can suspend, alter or annul because they are God given. Again, it is this fact of divine immutability that makes such rights inalienable, that is, beyond the reach of any one people, state or individual to change, alter or destroy thereby establishing an inflexible and recognizable standard of right and wrong for the basis of human conduct and criminal jurisprudence. Sir William Blackstone in his Commentaries gives weight to this argument of a higher law when he writes, “This law of nature, being co-eval with mankind and dictated by God himself, is of course superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over all the globe, in all countries, and at all times: no human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this…” Blackstone adds, “… in compassion to the frailty, the imperfection, and the blindness of human reason, (God) hath been pleased, at sundry times and in divers manners, to discover and enforce it’s laws by an immediate and direct revelation. The doctrines thus delivered we call the revealed or divine law, and they are to be found only in the holy Scriptures.” According to Blackstone, the nations of the world are under two laws. First, the law of nature which is reason infused in man by God, and second, revealed law found in Scripture. This combination of the laws of nature and revealed law is expressed in the Declaration of Independence as the “Law of Nature and Nature’s God.” According to America’s charter God is the source of inalienable rights, and God is the “foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”

Certainly there is no middle ground, no reconciliation between the United Nation’s “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” which relies on an “inalienable” principle supported upon the fluctuating prejudices and passions of mankind and America’s “the Declaration of 1776” where “inalienable” is set in stone according to superior wisdom of God. The former is a deception, while the later is unalterable truth. The former is the fountain of tyranny, while the later is the light of liberty.

Inalienable” according to man versus “inalienable” according to God will always be at war because it is a battle over the first principle of the social compact, which asks, by what standard do we build society? Upon what rights and obligations do we construct our family, our government, and our commercial institutions? Do we build using unholy bricks formed by irregular passions and vice which require the force of tyranny in the construction of the simplest and yet most unstable of social edifices or do use holy bricks created by virtue and righteousness which voluntary united through shared customs and habits providing the firmest material for the construction of the mightiest of monuments in society. This is the choice of “inalienable”.

One man’s “human rights” is another man’s tyranny. An example is the recent arrest of an American Pastor in London, England for preaching against sexual deviant behavior. According to Europe’s version of human rights, the homosexual, lesbian, and transvestite (a miniscule minority) have inalienable rights to their passions and vices and their behavior is protected by the police power of the state. The arrest of the American Pastor is the upholding of “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” through England’s legislative power to arrest, imprison and fine. But from the view of the Declaration of Independence, the arrest of the pastor is civil tyranny, an crushing defeat for free and open debate in the public square, the end of liberty and freedom of speech and the annulling of the social compact. This arrest was a nation’s violation of the rights of man according to rights granted by God. The tyrannical actions of London’s law and law enforcement reminds us of the words of Maximilien Robespierre spoken during the French revolution, “Terror is nothing other than justice, prompt, severe, inflexible; it is therefore an emanation of virtue; it is not so much a special principle as it is a consequence of the general principle of democracy applied to our country’s most urgent needs.” The answer and hope to the European community is to leave the highly flawed and tyrannical principle of “inalienable” according to the fluctuating passions of man and enter into the “inalienable” according the wisdom of God.  And the hope of the American Union and its manifest destiny is to return to its first love. This is the only true protection of life, liberty, and property. God Himself protects the integrity of the family, the virtue of the individual, and the prosperity of the community – the true purpose of the social compact. I invite all nations to the enter into the “inalienable” of the Declaration of Independence with its protection against the tyranny of criminal passions supported by civil authority. 

Religious Oath

Response. I cut and pasted these news post from the internet. Christian are not the only ones with a religious oath.

News Post 1 ” San Antonio City Council ends its summer hiatus and resumes work on a proposed change to its  nondiscrimination ordinances that apparently will discriminate against all who take the Bible at its word and follow it.

That’s because the change creates a penalty for those who ever exhibit a “bias,” which clearly could include adopting the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuality, with a permanent ban on participation in city government, business or employment.”

News Post 2

“evangelical preacher in Ecuador who ran for president earlier this year has been sentenced after he was found guilty of violating the country’s electoral code by speaking against homosexual behavior. Nelson Zavala has been fined for more than $3,000 and banned from running for office or being involved with any political party for one year because of his speech, which reportedly occurred in February.”

Note: If your an Atheist your natural instincts to the above news post is to approve and maybe even applaud the discrimination against Christians. In your heart, its okay to use so-called hate crime legislation to effectively shut down debate in the public square by Christians. For you, the Atheist, liberty of speech or Christian political debate is worthy of sacrifice for the common good because calling Homosexuality is an “insensitive” and “intolerant” act.  Your heart will also acknowledge the sensible approach of keeping such “bigots” out of government all together. This is certainly the next political phase in the secular community work to establish universal justice for everyone, except for those political right “wing nuts”. The disenfranchisement of Christians in the political arena has to happen because they are a vicious faction, an opposing will against the faith and goals of the secular community. By the way, what ever happened to the Atheist’s all encompassing sense of diversity and inclusion? Apparently, it only works if your founding principles are aligned with the agenda, otherwise diversity is an enemy of progress.

So lets stop fooling ourselves. It is in the nature of man and the spirit in him that drives him to enforce and protect his convictions – convictions that are created by doctrine which we term religion. While the religious Oath to God (by the way supports American organic law) has been removed for failing in diversity and tolerance, we now find a a new oath on the rise, the Oath of Diversity, this in order to secure a government from foreign intrusion, and by those who can not support the “sensible” and “liberal” agenda of the Atheist.

Let me assert that I AGREE with the principle of establishing an oath to secure unity in government that reflects the values of the community. A community and its government has to protect itself against foreign invasion and influence. Read Plato “Laws” and George Washington’s “Farewell Address. They both feared foreign intrigue as working to undermine the community. Besides protecting itself from foreign influence, a community needs leadership unified in principle so that public arguments are not over the foundation stones of the community but over opinions of application. This only can allow a peaceful resolve by the majority over the minority without causing a civil war. Civil war is a fight over the principle (see America’s civil war over slavery), while arguments over application is a public debate.

However this is were you, the Atheist, and I, a Christian, part ways. I don’t agree with the principle that the laws of God are not to be obeyed. My conscience, along with the conscience of my community, is trained according to the values and principles of Scripture. So when it comes to defining good and evil and the work of government, you and I are not having a public debate but a war. God is may standard and no God is yours. I am just as determined to erect a religious oath to protect my community from you, as you, the Atheist, desire to erect an Oath of Diversity to keep me out. In this cultural divide, life and liberty is vanishing for a Christian due to political correctness of a secular sort, and the battle lines are being drawn. If there is no God certainly I will lose, but if there is God then you will lose.

Packaging Diversity

I appreciate your comments..but politics is driven by agenda and agenda is based on doctrine which is translated into personal conviction. Diversity is not a time tested viable principle. It does not work.Diversity has worked for the Atheist while the political opponents are in power, but when Atheist take the helm of power…diversity is sweep under he rug. The examples abound. For example, the cry of Atheist was creation was taught in public education and not evolution. The naive Christian community in America, even knowing that is violated the principles of their Social Compact the Declaration of Independence, allowed evolution into the classroom. However, with the power hold of Atheist, the Bible and creationism was removed. The Christian community had ordained prayer in public education..the Atheist removed prayer by Court order. We now have  a moment of the silence for the success of the gay community. The Christian community, basing their moral law on the Ten Commandments, by the influence force of judicial activism, were forced to take it down from schools, court rooms and other public areas. The list goes on and on and on… Your peace with all encompassing diversity is because it is working toward your advantage. It has packaged Atheist’s quest to destroy the pillars of the Christian community and the rightful inheritance of the American born citizen. This holds true for “Human Rights” another

packaging without moral limit. Recently, a Christian photographer was fined 8,000 for refusing to be a photographer at a gay wedding. It violated her religion and her conscience. The ‘human rights” were confirmed to the gay couple but to the Christian she lost of part property by an exorbitant fine, the right to liberty of conscience by civil force, and the security to the employment of her choice by continuous threats of high fines. In more sensible circles, we call this tyranny. Again, lets us come out of the darkness…diversity is a false principle. It can not work. It will not work. When a community is not unified in principle then the community is divided in the direction of the police powers of the state and this leads to civil war. The reason the United State was successfully created was it was founded by a homogenous group of people. Christians, who shared similar principles, although they argued over application. America is now divided. It will either split up or by God’s intervention be restored to its foundation stones.

Darkness

Socrates, after laying out solid principles, hopes God will allow preservation of them, but if not, then one could expect a multiplying of petty laws and amendments in the expectation of attaining what is best, but the doctoring of laws  accomplishes nothing but to complicate and augment maladies. 667

Rebels

Locke “…for rebellion being an opposition, not to person, but authority, which is founded only in the constitution and laws of the government; those, whoever they be, who by force break through, and by force justify their violation of them, are truly and properly rebels.” 199

Usurpation

Locke “They, who remove, or change the legislative, take away this decisive power, which nobody can have but by the appointment and consent of the people; and so destroying the authority which the people did, and nobody else can set up, and introducing a power which the people hath not authorized, they actually introduce a state of war, which is that of force without authority.”200

Locke “… in whatsoever he has no authority, there he is no king, and may be resisted: for wheresoever the authority ceases, the king ceases, and becomes like other men who have no authority.”206

As a Christian who declares Jesus as Lord. I support the enumerated powers of Article 1 s.8 given to Congress. Therefore, I object to the usurpation by the Congress in its unconstitutional legislation including federal mandated healthcare, a clear violation of the will of the American people. How do we restore the Power of the People over their federal union. By instituting the missing fourth branch of government, the Sabbath – a public assembly of all the people in order that may review the laws of the land and the magistrates who execute them.

Article I Section 8 of the US Constitution does not enumerate powers to Congress for a national health care system. In our Federal Union based on co-ordinate powers between the States and Washington DC… local health and safety measures are powers reserved to the States. The endless usurpations and encroachments by Washington DC upon state sovereignty is evidence of a broader problem – the lack of vigilance and a system of action by America’s sovereign, the People. America’s constitutional experience has demonstrated that the voting booth is not an adequate check on public authority – a more involved system is required. Providentially, this measure is provided by the wisdom of God. It is called the Sabbath. The Sabbath is a required weekly meeting of the all people for the work of reviewing the laws of the land and the magistrates who execute them. It is a weekly town home meeting. It is day of public debate. It is citizenship training day.  It is election day.

Sidney “There were many wise and good men in the senate during the reigns of Caligula, Nero, and Domitian; but instead of following their counsel, they endeavour’d to destroy them all, least they should head the people against them; and such princes as resemble them will always follow the like courses.” 405

Self Preservation

Hallam “There may indeed be times of pressing danger, when the conservation of all demands the sacrifice of the legal rights of a few; there may be circumstances that not only justify, but compel, the temporary abandonment of constitutional forms….But it is of high importance to watch with extreme jealousy the disposition towards which most governments are prone, to introduce too soon, to extend too far, to retain too long, so perilous a remedy,” 240

Note: Rome in time of immediate national danger raised up a Dictator, and this office lasted six months and then the office was set down. Such a constitutional act can only be done by a virtuous citizenry who can overcome any attempt to make such central authority permanent. When the Roman people were virtuous they had the character to remove the usurper Tarquin the Proud for his family crimes, but when the Roman people become corrupted by bribes and licentiousness, they went from usurper Julius Caesar to Augustus to Tiberius and on and on and on.    

Spirit of Liberty

Cicero “Freedom suppressed and again regained bites with keener fangs than freedom never endangered.” B.2.24.deoff

Vicious Factions

Thucydides (400 BC) writes that evildoers are called skillful. Their desire to rule out of avarice and ambition and the zeal for winning proceeds from those two. They lead their political parties by promoting their policies under decent sounding names like “equality for ordinary citizens” They pretend to serve the  public but it is the prize, striving by whatever means to win, while venturing forward on the most horrible outrages without regard for justice or the public good. They praised those who could pass a horrible measure under cover of a fine speech; the citizen in the middle was destroyed. 92
