The gospel of Jesus Christ engendered the
framing of this nation
Christians are now running away from the gospel message, i.e. from the Word of God as fast as they can go
so that they can be respected in the eyes of man.
While "freedom of the conscience" might have been talked about in other parts of the world, it was actually put into practice, in legal form, in early America. The only way to do that is to limit the power of government, i.e. get it out of a person's home, limit its encroachment upon his thoughts and actions (prevent it from forcing him into "group think," "village think," etc.). The "priesthood of all believers" was key to the idea of a person's right of conscience without government (collective) control.
This is not to be confused with "freedom from the conscience" (dialectic 'reasoning') as is now being advocated and put into praxis in America and the world today, what most people will jump to, condemning my first statements. There is no such thing as a "Christian nation." The Lord will return to establish that. What there can be is a nation affected by believers, preaching and teaching the gospel message of Jesus Christ in the public area, affecting those who they place in public office, i.e. to represent their right to preach and teach the gospel of Jesus Christ in the public arena (what freedom of speech, religion, etc. was all about).
For anyone who bother's to read what the "separation of State and Church" was all about, going to the source, they would see the Marxist rendition of it as being the States not having the right to advocate the gospel of Jesus Christ (why they wanted, and got, prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, the Ten Commandments, the Holy Scriptures, and chastening removed from the public schools), when in truth State's had State churches until the late l820's and early 30's (which I personally would not advocate, Roger Williams himself having addressed the abuse of it in his day, nearly costing him his life). It was a Federal church they did not want (which we now have, i.e. the church of "human nature," pressuring the citizens of this nation to worship at the feet of abomination).
Liberals squirm at the truth that the gospel of Jesus Christ had direct impact upon this nation, liberty being established in the laws of God and of natures God, and not in the carnal nature of man, i.e. the laws of the flesh (as they can only preach and teach). Their objective, as dialectic 'thinkers,' is to re-write history to protect their conscience. To "protect" themselves (and those who they deceive into follow them in the way of death) they must classify the preaching and teaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the public arena (the secular domain, under God), i.e. the doctrine of man's need for a savior to 'redeem' man from damnation and eternal death (for being "normal") and 'reconcile' him to a Father who will direct his every step ("repressing" his "human nature"), as being a "hate crime."
By making all "religions" equal, man becomes God himself, righteous in and of himself, needing no God. Those of dialectic 'reasoning' can not think any other way or they and their theory and practice would, as Jürgen Habermas put it, "collapse into a bottomless abyss." "If the 'restoring of life' of the world is to be conceived in terms of the Christian revelation, then Marx must collapse into a bottomless abyss." (Jürgen Habermas, Theory and Practice) This from a Marxist who helped set up the language of the world court, soon to judge you, i.e. determine your worth as a global citizen (using the same methods as Hitler, making the nation God's nation, with him being God, only on a global scale, making the world God's world, with the facilitators of 'change,' the advocates of "human nature" being God).
This is how this nation laws were framed, as 'liberals' refuse to accept—for their conscience sake (protecting themselves from having a "guilty conscience" for their unrighteous thoughts and unrighteous actions):
John Quincy Adams wrote: "The highest glory of the American Revolution [know in Britain at the beginning as the "Protestant Revolution"] was this; it connected in one dissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity .... from the day of the Declaration .... they (the American people) were bound by the laws of God, which they all, and the laws of he gospel, which they nearly all, acknowledged as the rules of their conduct."
George Washington, first President of the United States, wrote: "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports ... and let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion ... We ought to be persuaded that the propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which heaven itself has ordained."
"Every system of law known to civilized society generated from or had as its component one of two well known systems of ethics, stoic [heresiarchal paradigm] or Christian [patriarchal paradigm]. The COMMON LAW draws its subsistence from the latter, its roots go deep into that system, the Christian concept of right and wrong or right and justice motivates every rule of equity. It is the guide by which we dissolve domestic friction's and the rule by which all legal controversies are settled." (Strauss Vs. Strauss., 3 So. 2nd 727, 728, 1941) Roe Vs. Wade reversed this order, choosing Stoic (Marxist) ideology over and against Christianity (they can never be equal).
The Transformational Marxist, Max Horkheimer wrote: "For the men who made the Constitution there was no principle that did not derive its authority from a religious source." (Max Horkheimer, Eclipse of Reason) "Government and its trust is 'found on the nature of man, that is, on the will of his Maker and . . . [is] therefore sacred. It is an offence against Heaven to violate that trust.'" (quotation of Dickinson's used by Max Horkheimer in Eclipse of Reason)
George Washington warned us: "It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution, in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one [as is now going on with departments (with members from the departments, under the separate branches of government, coming together in facilitated meetings, dialoguing their opinions to consensus) linking all branches together as one], and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositories, and constituting each the guardian of the public weal [chastening] against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern; some of them in our country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them. If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for, though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit which the use can at any time yield." (George Washington, Farewell Speech)
We derive our inalienable rights from God (from the gospel message of the Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ). We only have to recognize and secure them, i.e. what the "Bill of right's" did. "Human rights" can only come from man, from his carnal "human nature." By recognizing and securing them we negating our God given inalienable rights. Our children, in the classroom today, dialoging their opinions, i.e. how they "feel" and what they "think" in the 'moment,' i.e. regarding laws and man, only having the consciousness of their "human nature" and therefore have no concept of inalienable rights. They therefore will 'willingly' follow a tyrant, a Despot, who promises them their heart's desire (as we now have).
We have now embraced the way of the French Revolution, where liberté, égalité, and fraternité guided the government in setting policy for "the people." We have replace liberty under law with liberté of the flesh. Therefore, we have embraced égalité based upon "human nature," with fraternité ("the people" united in consensus) in 'justifying' and defending "the children of disobedience" over and against the Father's authority which would restrain them.
Vladimir Lenin's speech on May 12, 1920 resulted in the death of millions of Russian citizens. It is the ideology now being advocated by many of our politicians. He stated: A "more powerful enemy, the bourgeoisie [the middle class-traditional family system where the Father 1) gives commands to his children, to be accepted "as given" and obeyed," 2) chastens those who disobey them and 3) casts out any who disrespect his authority. This is the source for the "top-down" Patriarchal Paradigm or way of thinking and acting which is found in private business, in limited government, and in the autonomous assembling of believers], whose resistance … and whose power lies ... in the force of habit [doing right and not wrong], in the strength of small-scale production [private business, independent of, i.e. separated from socialist, i.e. "communal" cause, i.e. being anti-communitarian in structure—Abraham Maslow wrote: "The best way to destroy democratic society [socialism, i.e. democratization] would be by way of industrial authoritarianism [private business], which is anti-democratic in the deepest sense." (Abraham Maslow, Maslow on Management)]." "Unfortunately, small-scale production [private business] is still widespread in the world, and small-scale production engenders capitalism and the bourgeoisie ["Do what I say or else...."] continuously, daily, hourly, spontaneously, and on a mass scale." "... the peasantry [the traditional family system] constantly regenerates the bourgeoisie [the "middle" class which supports the "upper" class]—in positively every sphere of activity and life." "... gigantic problems of re-educating ..." [Karl Marx wrote: "Concerning the changing of circumstances by men, the educator must himself be educated." (see Bloom's Taxonomies) "The changing of circumstances and of self can only be grasped and rationally understood as revolutionary practice (praxis) [in the socialist action of negating individualism, under God, and private business." (Karl Marx, Thesis on Feuerbach # 3) In other words the teachers must themselves become revolutionary, i.e. "democratic" in practice] "eradicating their bourgeois habits and traditions ['liberating' the children from their Father's authority in their classroom experience]." "... until small-scale economy and small commodity production [private business and the private interests] have entirely disappeared, the bourgeois atmosphere [of "top-down" authority], proprietary habits [respecting private property] and petty-bourgeois traditions [respecting and obeying higher authority] will hamper proletarian [the children of obedience will hamper "the children of disobedience's"] work both outside and within the working-class movement [communitarianism], …" "... in every field of social activity, in all cultural and political spheres without exception." "We must learn how to eradicate all bourgeois habits, customs and traditions everywhere [We must learn now to destroy the traditional family, the patriarchal home, the Father's authority from the face of the earth]." (Vladimir Lenin, Left-Wing Communism: an Infantile Disorder An Essential Condition of the Bolsheviks' Success)
Karl Marx made clear where Christianity, i.e. the Father's authority (see below), was to be placed in his form of government. "The justice of state constitutions is to be decided not on the basis of Christianity, not from the nature of Christian society but from the nature of human society." "The state arises out of the exigencies of man's nature." "Laws must not fetter human life; but yield to it; they must change as the needs and capacities of the people change." "To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual . . ." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') The soviet court system revealed to the world this way of thinking and acting. We have been warned about the consequence of going down this road: "Jurisprudence of terror takes two forms; loosely defined rules which produces unpredictable law, and spontaneous changes in rules to best suit the state [those in "government"]." (R. W. Makepeace and Croom Helm, Marxist Ideology and Soviet Criminal Law) Our courts and leaders now praxis this way of thinking and acting with no "guilty conscience."
Labeling the traditional home as engendering "authoritarianism," i.e. the Father giving commands to His children to be obeyed without question, chastening those who disobey, casting out those who disrespect His authority, the agenda today (even in the "church") is to negate the gospel message from the face of the earth. Jesus Christ gave us an "authoritarian" system to follow: "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." "For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak." John 5:30; 12: 49, 50 "Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God." Hebrews 10:7 "And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself [as a child under His Father's authority], and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." Philippians 2:8 "He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done." Matthew 26:42 "And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt." Matthew 26:39 "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven." "For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." "After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen." Matthew 7:21, 10:32, 12:50, 6:9-13 "As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love." John 8: 24; 15: 9-10
There is not a day that goes by that men (and women) in leadership, some in the highest offices of our land, do not think about the traditional home and private business, i.e. how to "eradicate" them from the face of the earth by uniting "the people" in the praxis (government/church programs) of negating them from the culture, united under banners such as "No child left behind," "All children are at risk," Education Nation, and Common Core. They think as Abraham Maslow thought, only now having the power of government to put his hate of the Father's authority into praxis (socialist action). Maslow wrote: "I have found whenever I ran across authoritarian students [the children of the bourgeois, honoring their Father's authority as Jesus honored His Father's authority] that the best thing for me to do was to break their backs immediately." "The correct thing to do with authoritarians [those who initiate and sustain private business, property, family, i.e. limited government, i.e. faith in a higher authority than "human nature"] is to take them realistically for the bastards they are and then behave toward them as if they were bastards." (Abraham Maslow, Maslow on Management)
Negate the gospel message from the classroom (prayer in the Lord Jesus Christ's name, the Ten commandments, the Holy Scriptures, and chastening), and you negate the gospel message (and the "guilty conscience" for sinning) from the heart's of our leaders and representatives. All we have now is a nation of despots, using the power of government (serving the flesh, protecting it from the Word of God) for their carnal gain. Through our use of dialectic 'reasoning' ("purging" ourselves of the righteousness of God, making ourselves God, "'righteous' in and of ourselves") we have become a nation of abomination. "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge [ fear of God is where knowledge beings], I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." Hosea 4:6 Our children are now the play things of pedophiles, i.e. abusers of children who masquerade under the title "facilitators of 'change.'"
I don't blame the 'liberal's' for what has happened to this nation. I blame the "men of God," who, seeking the approval of men, have made the gospel message of non-effect. Woe be to the man who attempts to use the bride of Christ for his own gain, i.e. prostituting her on the street corners of the world for his personal gain (for the approval of men). Instead of the gospel message being preached and taught in the world, the "gospel message" has joined with the world, making the world the "gospel message." It is here, and only here, that this nation has lost its blessings from God, i.e. lost its liberty.
Government is now at the point it can not allow a believer into government for fear of "the guilty conscience" he brings with him, making him untrustworthy.
"Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels." Mark 8:38
