The book of Judges illustrates the infeasibility of mixing a Christian world order and a pagan faith. Every time, the pagans win and the Christians are oppressed. This is America today. And the Middle East.
The good news is that this condition does not need to be permanent. Brave men and women (Deborah) willing to c fight their enemies can re-establish Christian nations.
How ironic that individual Christians today are willing to fight in pagan wars to advance pagan ideas on behalf of a secular state and yet are not willing to fight to establish a Christian state.
That will change.
It will change when people believe we can do this.
And it will change as this current order collapses into either complete anarchy or a totalitarianism and a poverty so oppressive that we are compelled to act or die.
Because if we don’t, Christianity will cease to exist in any meaningful way — which is the condition of the Church in most of the world today. It’s flash and no bang, noise and no rain. Thunder and lightning but no refreshing rains, no growth, no real salt to preserve society. It’s largely worthless.
Why is Christianity important? What is important is Truth. And God is Truth. And that Son of God, Jesus Christ, is the Way, The Truth and the Life. This isn’t a “religious” idea — it is what is real. He is the King. He is the Creator. He is the Ruler of Every Nation. We need to live like it and honor him with not just our “personal” beliefs, but in building Christian nations.
As the Pilgrims so well understood — it takes a Christian nation-state to preserve and advance Christianity. That is the way of the future.
It’s my opinion — crazy as it is — that school districts should be local school districts — completely controlled by the tax paying parents living there.
Right now, we have little control — I just learned that they are moving “low income” students from outside our SD into our schools. Why? To makes some Leftist’s view of how thing “ought to be” exist. I never got a vote in that. I never got a chance to voice my opinion on that. It wasn’t even a public debate — leftist bureaucrats who are saving the world made that decision for me. In the mean time, my kids are going to attend school with kids who don’t live in the district and don’t belong there. How does that build community? It undermines community. And we’ll get the gangs and the fights and more division.
About those guns: Continue reading
In hell, it’s not just the shooter that will pay. It will be the doctors, teachers, principals, and parents the put him on drugs and told him there was no hell.
The Necessity of A Christian State
Summary: There can be no Christianity without a Christian State.
The Pilgrims and Puritans came to North America and established Christian forms of government — explicitly Christian.
Fast forward to 1789 with the adoption of the US constitution which, though compatible with Christianity, was influenced by non-Christian ideas.
As atheism grew in our churches and universities and became the established religion — what is taught by professors (those who profess) is the established, tax funded religion/world view. Thus it is illegal to pray in schools. It is illegal to have the Ten Commandments in public places, including schools. It is illegal in much of Europe, Canada and the US to criticize sin (including homosexuality) or Islam. Continue reading
Been there done that.
I’ve lived in countries and cultures with Zero Tolerance for weapons. Any weapons. Pistols, revolvers, shotguns, single shots, bolt action, semi-automatic.
I lived on the front lines of Mexico’s border zone. It was and remains 100% illegal for a Mexican citizen to own a firearm of any kind in his own country.
But the narcos have access to rifles, “assault” rifles, grenade launchers, revolvers, .50 caliber machine guns and everything else out there. The average Mexican is just a potential victim. Continue reading
Kids are smart and I don’t talk down to mine. I ask them questions, like, “what is racist?”
“Dad,” one son said, “when you call someone a racial epithet, that is racist.”
“OK,” I reply, “but what raises the use of a racial epithet from rude or inconsiderate or boorish to ‘racist?’ Racist is a special word — it is the unforgivable sin in our culture. Why is calling a man an epithet worse than killing him? And, why can Negros call negros the ’N’ word but others may not?”
To dear daughter I asked, “do you believe it is right to impose your morality of someone else?”
“No,” she replied, “of course not, that’s just wrong.” Continue reading
The world as we know it is ending. Fools, the ignorant, and the rich don’t care. Some of us fall between the gaps here, neither foolish, ignorant nor rich. We worry.
We worry what happens when the happy money runs out. It is a “who is going to pay our paycheck” kind of worry. When the whole fake pyramid scheme falls apart, the rich will retire to their ranches in Montana, their island retreats in the Caribbean and their yachts in the Mediterranean. The rich never go hungry.
The poor will riot and burn and blame everyone but themselves. The rich will try to get the less rich to stamp out the rioting. It will work in some places. In others the cities will burn. Continue reading
