So Help Me God

The battle for American liberty is the battle for American Christianity. Christians largely don't get it. They are locked into a religious viewpoint, oblivious of the greater battle being waged against them and the word of God.

In order for the new socialist order to be completed in the United States, they must not only defeat the forces of liberty, but also the forces of Christianity. It is actually the religious zeal that they fear more than a few dedicated patriots. I suggest that the Marxist bureaucracy thirsts for the rebellion of the patriots, to kill off the last few hold-outs of Constitutional authority and to forever brand "patriots" as lunatics who should be disarmed and exterminated.

Christians give them more pause and for good reason. There are a lot more Christians than patriots and religious fervor is greater than patriotic fervor. Every war in the 21st Century has proven that. The fact that some of the patriots are also Christians is less relevant to them than if Christians became patriots.

Some proof of this fear is that when any individual Christian organization sues the government as in the case of the Little Sisters of the Poor (that recently won a stay from the contraceptive mandate of Obamacare until the Court decides how to respond to the case) the government finds a way to make some small concession. The Supreme Court might allow these individual groups a narrow exception from the mandate, but it will stop short of allowing the religious freedoms granted in the Constitution on a broad scale in order to walk that tightrope between denying Constitutional protection, but not quite enough to anger all Christians. So long as some Christians believe that things are being done by some logic, they will remain docile.

The point the Supreme Court wants to make, in every case it hears, is that they are the authority; they decide which of God's rights are relevant. It is their way of not only acting as Soloman, but as Judas. It is their way of ultimately being God.

Adam and Eve were created in God's image; in liberty. They were not created the servants of any one other than God. When they began to serve evil, they were banished. It is a sin to place any one, even Supreme Court justices, in the place of God. It is a sin to worship obedience to a government bent on the destruction of God's will that we live in liberty. It is our obligation to take upon ourselves the burdens of our brothers and sisters. Every time Christians have looked to the government to do their Christian work, they have turned their backs on God and his will.

There is no way to look at this government of the United States and see in it the place that God created: which was a nation of people who honored God, who put God on their currency; whose representatives placed their hands on Bibles. He blessed us for our fidelity. Now, when these representatives swear their oath on the Bible to protect and defend the Constitution, they are lying on both counts: once with their mouth and once with their hand.

If you are a Christian and you have asked for God's help, you might think about the last time you helped Him.

  1. Very good points! For many Christians today, we have to answer the question - what would Christ have us do? Are we to just pray and serve (the current dominant posture), or are we to actively oppose these evil forces (if so - how)? I believe we will see a slow awakening (hastened by the actions of the currently devolving culture).

    1. "...or are we to actively oppose these evil forces..." emphatically, yes !
      "...if so - how?" Eph 6:13 "Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."

      America is in dire need of what our spiritual Founding Fathers would call a return to and revival of personal religion. That is, faith in and worship of God through Christ. The evil forces ruling today know this and are overtly attacking Christianity. They very well know that our liberties - both individual and corporate - are deeply rooted in and are an outcropping of faith in God and it's free exercise. Their efforts are necessarily directed to mockery, denial, minimizing and outlawing any and all forms of this most precious liberty - our God-ordained liberty.

      Our task is to identify and, as publicly as possible, expose the evil that works against our most foundational liberty. Names named, occasions cited and the portion(s) of Rightful Liberty that has/have been assaulted.

  2. Another point to take from this is for churches to get out from under the IRS muzzle by scrapping thier 501c status. Then pastors with any guts or balls can preach the truths about the the current government coup that is quietly taking place in the US to some of thier semi- clueless flock. Correct me if I am wrong, but is that not where our first revoloution gained momentum?
