July 2015 – The Establishment of a State Church
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” –The First Amendment
We can say there were many philosophical things that separated us from the rest of the world, however perhaps one of the most striking things is the first amendment. When one studies history, there is one inescapable fact; Freedom of speech and religion is a revolutionary idea which has literally never been seen in substantial recorded history of governments. In fact if there is one thing governments always desire, it is to suppress dissent, and force religious official view. Power is a drug to many and anything that threatens the supply of that drug has always been met with violent attack in order to keep the flow of the deadly intoxication of power.
In this piece I would like to focus mostly on this part of the first amendment “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”
In order to interpret any writing you must go to historical contexts and original intent. Without original intent you do not have established principle whereby you can interpret an unalienable right. Unfortunately for the liberty minded American, the progressives neither believe the founding principles of the nation, nor do the respect the rule of law. Theirs is a world where relativism reigns and the idea that one respects the constitution as originally written is anathema. Our founders gave us a means of either adding to or taking away from the Constitution. That method is the amendment process. Since the progressive enemies of liberty know there is no way that they can get their agenda passed through any amendments, they focus of the judicial branch to force the nation to turn from its foundational principles. This tactic has been very successful.
What the progressives have done is simply violate the very establishment clause they say they do respect. They beat the “separation of church and state” mantra over and over again and in doing so have actually have established one of the main things they say they are against. Religion is made up of certain orthodoxy. The main beliefs of a religion are near and dear to its followers. The progressives may not claim that a deity has given them revelation for their position, but make no mistake about it; progressivism is an inflexible religious view point that seeks to dominate and force its dogma on the rest of us. They are the most intolerant group. Their evangelism is far and wide with their evangelists in entertainment, “news media”, education, and now in many post Christian denominations. What they have done is successfully meld together their Progressive religion with the state. Now state power is used to further the agenda of the religion of the progressives, and their high priest for the time being is Barack Obama. He, a progressive, has no respect for the rule of law, states’ rights, or the separation of powers in the three branches of the federal government. He has and will do anything he can regardless of the Constitution to as he said “fundamentally change America.”
As in the days of old, before the American war of independence. King Obama seeks to force his view of morality, and religious doctrine on us. The comparison always being the discrimination of racial minorities, he and his fellow religious fanatics attempt to force the country to accept behavior as on par with natural racial genetics. Now a person has a protected status and the rule of progressive government tyranny for their sexual behavior as well as their decision to call themselves another gender. The standard is no longer the race but rather the behavior. So the true churches who respect and follow the teachings of Jesus, are now told that their religious viewpoint is bigoted, hateful, unacceptable, and must be punished under threat of government sanction. A Christian business person or worker, who refuses to partake in the promotion of, or participation in a homosexual wedding, is now under the judgement of the newly established state Church of progressivism.
I have long said that the homosexual agenda was never about “just let us have our choice.” It has always been about forcing the acceptance of it under penalty of law. Now the slippery slope is even slipperier as one of the leaders in the NAACP (who is white) has announced she is “trans racial’. Does she now get affirmative action because she has “always felt black?”
You see, there is no end to the absurdity and thus a question must be asked; is there another agenda that is really at work in the hierarchy of the global progressive movement? I believe there indeed is. I believe the globalists seek to destroy the power of America as a nation with a Judeo-Christian world-view in order to take away the only remaining threat to the globalist agenda of one world government. The international progressive powers seek a hedonistic sexual culture ruled by certain parts of Marxist ideology commingled together with global fascism. It’s the perfect world for the elite as they rule with the control of resources, the fist of Stalin, the morals of Caligula, and the unity of evil enough to make the god of progressivism, Satan himself, well pleased.
The new state Church is upon us with its own Pope Obama, its board of elders in the supreme Court, its committees in congress, and its powerful tentacles reaching into every nook and cranny of society. Not only have they repeatedly violated the “prohibiting the free exercise thereof” part of the first amendment, they have made sure to intensely violate the principle of “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” The government makes laws without congress, and is forcing its progressive religious orthodoxy on us all.
I as an American citizen, student of the founding of America and the constitution, student of history, and most importantly a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, will NOT SUBMIT to any progressive tyranny. I will NOT do a homosexual “wedding”, I will NOT participate in any way. I will NOT be told what I can and cannot say from my pulpit. I WILL NOT BACK DOWN UNDER ANY PRESSURE!
Ours, with all its faults, was once the most free, prosperous, hopeful nation in the world. Now we have become the tilled ground for hard tyranny and persecution against the Christian. The attacks will come first in social persecution then in economic persecution then in physical persecution. There is no turning back without repentance. The judgment of God is upon us because we have severed our ties with Him. We have murdered 56 million babies, sanctioned the abomination of homosexual “marriage”. Destroyed respect for the family and God’s delegated role of husband as leader. We have disrespected God’s men, his prophets are now ridiculed and scorned by culture and God will leave America to the consequences of its own decisions, and actions. Our enemies will have victories over us; our economy will crash as never before. In the coming years we will wonder; what happened and who will save us? When we do, the progressives will see their chance to be the false saviors, and we will perish as a free nation to total hard tyranny.
Psalms 2:1-5 “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. (Bold mine).
1) The heathen rage – Why are they tumultuous noise makers?
2) Imagine a vain thing – Why ponder that which is worthless?
3) The kings set themselves against God and his anointed – They conspire to eliminate the Father and his anointed Son along with God’s messengers.
4) Let us break their bands asunder – Let us tear off the restraint of God and his messengers.
5) Cast away their cords – Throw out that which is of God that intertwines with our will.
God’s response is this; “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure” (bold mine)
Church, it’s time to wake up and stand for the Word of God like never before in America. Christian, it’s time to resist the powers of evil government. It is time to speak out and preach the gospel. Do not think they will be satisfied leaving you alone in your church buildings. Satan is not satisfied as long as there is one professing Christian alive. Wake up!
