Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to worship false gods. Repent accordingly.

Religious Pluralism650pw

This may be news to most American “Christians” and most, if not all, of the “conservative Christian” Presidential candidates that they are likely to overwhelmingly support in the latest Pagan Right pitch to “save America”, but, believe it or not: There is no “God-given right” to openly worship false gods.

While we’re on the subject, it’s probably also important to note that “rights” are only as good (or as real) as the God giving ’em, and that the one and only true and living God actually despises and forbids the open worship of false gods anywhere in His creation.

And yes, His creation includes ‘Merica.

‘Merica doesn’t own and therefore doesn’t get to define how reality works in ‘Merica.

‘Mericans don’t own and therefore don’t get to define how reality works in ‘Merica.

God owns ‘Merica.

God defines – He personifies – reality, for ‘Merica and all else in His creation.

He has said with crystal clarity that the open worship of false gods is forbidden.

We can either repent of our proud ‘Merican rebellion in this regard, or we can continue to be crushed under the wrath of the living God that we proudly mock every time we claim to have “the right” to do that which He has explicitly forbidden.

Evidence of His wrath pouring down upon us is evident in every area of life: Family, politics, church, art, civil government, economics, law…

It’s impossible to miss. (See: Well color me satanic and call me America! (Or: How our cherished religious tolerance for false gods will ultimately kill us.) and Openly Reject God’s First Commandment? YES! WE! CAN!)

Unless we are still infatuated with our sin and blinded by our pride. (See: Why Americans don’t do repentance. and Singing Sweet, Sweet Lies in the “Land of the Free” and the Home of the NSA.)

The bondage and hell of Statism is the inevitable reward of our pride and rebellion, and even the most dull-minded among us can sense its coming. Yet all we seem to want to do at this point to fight the looming doom of anti-Christian Statism is – unbelievably – double down on “core American (and satanic) principles” like the “God-given right” to openly worship false gods.

May God – the real One – save America, by either breaking her into submission or breaking her into a million pieces…some of which may, by His grace, actually strive to obey Him as He has lovingly commanded. (See: Roaring into Post-America Christianity.)

  1. Five Biblical Governments
    By Alan Allison

    We, under the new covenant, are sheep among wolves. As Christians, we are in the world yet are not of the world. We are not a theocracy like Israel. We are not a monolithic society but a composite one. The Lord did not come to bring peace but a sword. Mat. 10: 34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36 And a person's enemies will be those of his own household.”

    There are five biblical governments none of which are subordinate to any other within their own jurisdictions. God establishes all five governments and each of them are directly accountable to God. They are Civil, Labor (or commerce), Family, Church and Self-government (or conscience). The crossing over of a jurisdictional boundary by one govt. against another becomes an instance of unauthorized authority, which is another way of saying tyranny.

    God has established these governments and, as well, they are natural or intuitive. There are examples of God’s word making reference to these governments along with commands to obey them.

    1.Civil – Romans 13 speaks to the civil government. Rom 13:1 Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.

    2.Labor – Eph 6:5-9 Slaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ; not by way of eye service, as men-pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether slave or free. And masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.

    3.Family – Eph 6:1-4 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth. Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
    Eph 5:22-24 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.

    4.Church – Eph 5:24 But as the church is subject to Christ Mat 18:15-20 "If your brother sins, go and show him his fault in private; if he listens to you, you have won your brother. "But if he does not listen to you, take one or two more with you, so that by the mouth of two or three witnesses every fact may be confirmed. "If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. "Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. "Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. "For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst."

    5.Self-government – 1Co 8:4-12 Therefore concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that there is no such thing as an idol in the world and that there is no God but one. For even if there are so-called gods whether in heaven or on earth, as indeed there are many gods and many lords, yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him. However, not all men have this knowledge; but some, being accustomed to the idol until now, eat food as if it were sacrificed to an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled. But food will not commend us to God; we are neither the worse if we do not eat, nor the better if we do eat. But take care that this liberty of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. For if someone sees you, who have knowledge, dining in an idol's temple, will not his conscience, if he is weak, be strengthened to eat things sacrificed to idols? For through your knowledge he who is weak is ruined, the brother for whose sake Christ died. And so, by sinning against the brethren and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ.

    Your right about our rebellion and gone to other "gods". Many so called "Christians" are even getting upset about the possible removal of the words: "In God We Trust" from the currency of the U.S..

    Moreover, the words “In God We Trust”, especially on The Federal Reserve Note, mean nothing today.  They are just lies and empty words, i.e., if you mean the God of The Bible.   

    The Federal Reserve Note (FRN) is in and of itself an abomination to The Almighty. (Proverbs 11: 1)  So is The Federal Reserve Bank that issues it.  If there's interest by anyone in that subject, make a reply to me and I'll post a separate comment as to how the FRN is in direct violation of His economic laws and how it came to be.

    The words would be better stated on this particular currency: "In gods We Trust".

    This nation trusts in "god (s) " alright, but NOT The God Of the Holy Scriptures.  

    The Constitution (and its 1st Amendment) opened the door for and allowed, over time by gradual increments, for His people to turn from their Christian ways and become, in essence, a pagan nation. 

    Here's just a couple of example of the numerous pagan symbols that most think nothing of:

    What do you think that big male erection (The Obelisk, Phallic Symbol) in the District of Criminals by the pool is doing there, just a nice decoration for the Park ?!   

    What do you think "Columbia" is ? A goddess, and that's the name of this county's capitol for crying out loud !

    How about the Masonic D.C. city layout itself ?!  Oh yeah, I'll bet the Almighty's real pleased with that !

    How about the female goddess in the harbor ?! 

    This entire nation "goes to law" before a court system symbolized by the Roman goddess Justitia (just to let you know what system of law you're really under), with judges in those Admiralty/Maritime/Roman Civil law courts bearing her symbol that plague our nation with corruption like a cancer.   (do a search for ancient history about Greco Roman myth a justice goddess)

    Are they going to judge righteously ??    How's that been workin' out so far ?

    There's a whole lot more evidence of the various "gods" that represent this nation and its current deplorable condition we now find it in.  However, recognizing it requires the ability to see what you're looking at.   

    This is a nation that trusts in "god" ???

    Well, yeah, many of them !   

    The main one, however, is: "We The People" !

    The Almighty told you in His Word that His Laws, Statutes and Judgments are perfect and "Thou shalt not add or subtract therefrom."   Yet, you continually "vote" for legislative and presidential offices to do just that, i.e., "add or subtract therefrom." The making of Law is a power that belongs to Him and Him alone!

    When it comes to the subject of "Worshiping God vs. god(s), think statutes, not statues.

    Want to truly trust In and properly worship the true God of The Scriptures ?   Well then DO THIS:

    His People need to repent and Be fully Immersed in His Name. Acts 2: 38 (which the Catholic church changed to sprinkling around 1000 or so AD.  Oh yeah, what's that big thing in the center of the Vatican's Court doing there ?   Think maybe there's a connection ???) and turn back to His Perfect Laws, Statutes and Judgments, instead of the laws of those other "gods".

    “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, And I will give you rest. Take My yoke (i.e., His Law 1 John 5: 2 & 3, as well as His tithe [tax] sytem) upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and ‘YOU SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.’ (Jer. 6: 16). My yoke is easy, and My load is light.” Matthew 11: 28 – 30.

    He instructed that if we ” … shall humble themselves (e.g., quit thinking we’re the sovereign, take our proper place and quit usurping His), and pray, and seek my face (e.g., He’s to be the ONLY law giver), and turn from their wicked ways (e.g., enforce His Laws, Statutes and Judgments); THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

    The only solution for this nation is to turn back to Him, His Laws, Statutes and Judgments, His Kingdom/Will on earth.
