How do you think about a Christian responsibility and response in regard to self-governance? Read Doug Wilson’s post!
Exert: “Now I am about to show that resistance to encroaching tyranny is a biblical necessity. Not only is it lawful according to the laws of God, it is also lawful according to the laws of our land and the long heritage of our civilization. When such resistance occurs in a stark despotism, our weapon is our blood on the sand of the Colliseum. When such resistance becomes necessary in a society where there has been a heritage of liberty, it will be because corruption has set in. Our opposition to that corruption will not be met with loud shouts of acclaim from the corrupt establishment. We will not find ourselves walking across the golf green of reformation accompanied by the polite golf applause of the regnant scoundrels and mountebanks. That’s not how it works. There will be disputes, and court cases, not to mention some yelling, and don’t forget some IRS audits.”
Our Founders clearly understood the historical significance or their forefathers coming to the New World especially the Northern colonies. The Significance of the First Great Awakening uniting the colonies to stand on Liberty goes back to those first settlers. Over the last 150 years, the infiltration of socialism into the Churches has obviated the real spirit of America’s view of Liberty in every sense.
I find the following to be a key to the Strategy for Reclaiming America to Founders Intent for Life, Liberty and Property! If you only read the Preface and Introduction in the linked book, you will gain more historical insight of our Foundational Strategies for Liberty than from any modern pundit or party strategist. Not only that, you will learn that what is acceptable in the various political, cultural and even economic arenas was rejected by our Founders for a much different Strategy for the Greatness of America.
Will we again be the City on the Hill or continue in Judgement?
I have been asked by Pastors, Priest and Rabbi’s what is written historically that substantiates the contrarian position of a 501c3, being the idea that there is “NO” separation of Church & State, and the way many were taught to view or preach Romans 13. Also, I have been told and experienced that it has proven to be more difficult for Lay Leaders to know about the truths of the Founding principles and therefore many times inhibit the Pastors from exercising their views that would more align with Founders Principles.
Many of you know that when I speak to various group meetings, I reference the First Great Awakening in its totality as the unifying factor in the American Revolution. Yet, it was greater then that – as proven in this work “The Pulpits of The American Revolution.” Seminaries, Bible Schools or Rabbinical Schools don’t teach this! They don’t even discuss the historical significance of these sermons as they relate to the extensible principle of Liberty.
