We Started On A Firm Foundation
On July 4, 1776, America declared independence, setting the stage for George Washington to became the father of a new nation, founded on Biblical morality. The people, who primarily were Christians leading this quest, were determined to apply the Biblical philosophy known as the Judeo-Christian Ethic to government, civil affairs and politics, and thus wrote The Declaration of Independence, which mentions God four times, and told King George:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. – that to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, …”
What they said was 1) God gives us our rights. 2) Rulers can’t take away what God gives us. 3) Government is to cooperate with God by safeguarding the rights He gives us!
They then codified the 10 commands for government as the US Bill of Rights, which explains what government should do and not do to secure our rights to follow The Bible’s 10 Commandments.
Thus amendment one of the US Constitution tells government it shall not interfere in our right to worship God according to 10 Commandments 1-4. You can read a bit more about the Biblical Basis of The US Bill of Rights here: http://www.threedimensionalleader.com/7/post/2012/07/the-divine-decalogue-for-dynamic-decency.html. I detail these parallels in more specifics in my presentations, sermons and seminars, and also in my upcoming book.)
The Two Political Paths of 1776
While in 1776, God was inspiring America’s Founders to apply the Biblical philosophy of Christianity to government, civil affairs and politics, however, Satan was inspiring a brilliant Bavarian degenerate named, Adam Weishaupt, who sought to entice the world with “10 Precepts of “immorality,” presented as “stepping stones to enlightenment,” which promises to lead us to a “New World Order” of “freedom from superstitious religion” and constricting Judeo-Christian, Puritanical values. (Read more about Weishaupt here: https://www.google.com/search?q=Adam+Weishaupt&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=fflb)
These 10 Precepts are the inversion (perverted reversal) of the Bible’s 10 Commandments, and they later became the 10 Planks of the Communist Manifesto, which basically says “government is god, and can use any means to take what the God of the Bible inspires and gives us and works through us to achieve. (Review them here: http://laissez-fairerepublic.com/tenplanks.html)
Satan always comes as an “angel of light,” and these 10 Precepts have been sold by their unscrupulous devotees to people throughout the USA under the guise that they are “going to support the poor, and give people more rights (as did Stalin, Lenin, Mao Zedong, and Hitler), yet use this pledge as a smoke screen to wield government power and programs to confiscate the prosperity and wealth God helps people to achieve, when we live by His principles.
Socialism proclaims Individual freedom, while actually consolidating power in a centralized over-reaching government that actually limits individual freedom. The so-called “Enlightened” values of liberal, self-Indulgent, socialism actually enslaves to sin and an irresponsible licentiousness and government dependence the very individuals its philosophy claims to liberate.
Jesus said, by their fruits you shall know them (Matt. 7:15-23). Fruits = Facts & Outcomes. It’s not what we say, but what actually happens that matters!
We Can Bounce Back to Our Biblical Basis
Americans greatly have underestimated and been caught off guard by the ability of wicked-bad, unscrupulous sinners to get in front of the good parade of “caring for the poor,” and take it in wrong directions that promote the 10 Precepts in contrast to the US Bill of Rights, which are founded upon the Bible’s 10 Commandments.
God had so inspired and anointed America’s founding fathers, however, that he worked through them to set up a system of government whereby it is impossible to violate any of the US Bill of Rights without also violating at least one of the 10 Commandments and vice versa.
Since knowledge of God and the Bible have been removed from our public schools and discouraged from public discourse, all to expunge it from our national conscience, Americans no longer are aware of how the government is violating God’s will for how we are supposed to live.
One answer is simple: require reading the Bible in schools again. Even if it is taught and discussed by skeptics, God promises that His word will not return void, and that He will work good through it, even when handled by people who are careless or corrupt with it. Isaiah 55:11 (ASV, KJV)
Many Americans see life getting harder, that it is more difficult to feed, clothe and house our families, yet because of the smoke screen of positive sounding governmental talking points, however, we do not connect the dots of our increasing hardships to the outcomes (fruit) of government policies.
If Truth Sets Us Free, What Will Lies Do?
The truth is that the first amendment conjoins five rights – all of which are based off “freedom of religion,” so Christianity could be applied to government and every area of civil life. If America’s Founding Fathers had wanted “separation of church and state,” (a phrase that is not in the US Constitution) they would have made five separate amendments, but they only made one! What they conjoined was
a) the practicing of Christian religion openly, publically and privately;
b) that we should speak about Christian religion openly, publically and privately;
c) we should use the press to publish everything we can about Christian religion, so it can be read openly, publically and privately;
d) we should freely assemble to practice Christian religion as churches and Bible studies and prayer groups, openly, publically and privately;
e) If the government strays from “The Biblical Basis of The Bill of Rights” and Christian religion, we should mass together publically and compel or drag it back to the straight and narrow paths of our nation’s founding.
Will you support these truths by passing along this message to others; writing papers at school; preaching sermons on these topics, and speaking about these principles to others whenever topics related to those in this article come up in conversations?
Recently, Bono, of U-2 fame, has come to the conclusion that government is not a solution to poverty. He said, “In dealing with poverty in America and around the world, welfare is a band aid; free enterprise is a cure.” Read more about it here: http://www.nationalreview.com/feed/354064/bono-we-need-capitalism-end-poverty-greg-pollowitz
What we all should be asking, however, is even if government has the best intentions, why when it only can provide the band-aid, does it insist on that over the cure?
Using government power to promote band-aids as a cure is an “angel of light” strategy used to implement the 10 Precepts. It becomes easier for us to connect the dots to how government is the problem when we realize it is being led by unscrupulous people who d not have honorable, traditional American values that are consistent with the 10 Commandments.
