NOTICE: I am NOT calling for an armed or violent insurrection! But it is a call to start resisting the tyranny that is spreading across our society.
This may be the most important post I have ever written. It will likely be one of the most controversial, as well. Please read it and read it carefully. If necessary, re-read it until you are sure you understand what I am telling you. Then, if you care about the dignity of the individual and for individual rights and liberty, share this with everyone you care about. Get this post to everyone you think you can reach. Make this go viral. This is a modern ride of Paul Revere!
This nation is under attack by ancient and evil forces. We are being forced to abandon everything that is real in favor of the unnatural dreams of demented minds: minds in rebellion to God. It is not the purpose of this post to detail every way that this is being done; I’ve been doing that since I was asked to join the RNL. This is a call for all who hear His voice and love liberty to stand against evil. Those who do not believe in the Creator will not understand this post. You are commanded to do what you can to reach them, but you are also told that, if they will not listen, you must be prepared to leave their fate to God. It is not our role to save anyone, only to offer the invitation by preaching the Word. Your role now is to stand against this evil that seeks to destroy what is left of us – even if it cost you your life (Luke 14:25-33).
As a believer, there are things we can do. First, educate yourself! Learn history: everything that happens today is driven by the events of yesterday. Learn what has gone before and you will be able to understand why things happen today – and even learn to anticipate the events of tomorrow. If you do not care enough to do this level of work, then how will you ever manage to do the work necessary to arrest our slide into darkness and start moving society back toward the light? At the very least, when Utah, Squatch or myself take the time to write a post explaining what we have learned in our own efforts to learn and understand history, can’t you at least take the time to read the entire post? And if we have put forth the effort to cite our post, can’t you take the time to read the links? Then, if you find value in what is posted here, can’t you spend the few moments necessary to spread it to your friends, family and associates? However, if you cannot take the time to educate yourself, ask yourself how you are any different from the people who are attacking liberty? Think about it this way: if a person comments on a post without reading and thinking about it and the supporting links aren’t they essentially demanding to enjoy the benefits of another person’s labor without doing any work themselves? But worse still are those who do not share information because they fear what others may think of them. Those people are already dead and have no place in the struggle to retain man’s liberty. They certainly aren’t the children of our founding.
But is not enough to just learn about what is happening and why; we must push back. If you have children, start by getting your kids out of school – especially public universities. The schools are the primary means by which this evil is propagating in our world today. They no longer educate your children: they indoctrinate them. They use your money to turn your child away from you and to the State, and the State is in rebellion against the natural order of this world; against God. You must not allow the schools to undermine your authority as your child’s parent. God has commanded each of us to raise our children according to His ways. If we neglect this duty and leave the schools to babysit our children, then we are in rebellion to God. I understand that it will involve great sacrifice to pull your kids out of the school system, but do you not love your children more than yourself? And do you not love the Lord even more? Get your kids out of the public schools NOW! If you’re worried about money, then here is your chance to participate in the real free market: start a business to help other parents get their kids out of public schools while still educating them.
Next, stop using any and all forms of government “assistance.” How can we speak against socialism if we are enjoying the fruits of socialism? Anything that is forcibly taken from another and given to you is the receipt of stolen goods. Do not fool yourself by rationalizing that you “paid for it;” the moment you receive $1 more than you actually paid in, you have started to enjoy the fruits of socialism. This is an area where we can learn from Ayn Rand, but also the Apostle, Paul. We — not the government — are to give to those who honestly cannot care for themselves (today, the children and the honestly infirm), but we are also told that the able bodied who refuse to work should not eat. Acts also tells us we are to share freely of our property to help the needs of others, but that it is still our property and we are entitled to do with it as we will. There is nothing about State coercion here; this is a focus on the heart of the individual. So to surrender our individual duty to the State is to turn our back on what God calls each of us to do for Him through the way we treat each other. This is also the duty to society inherent in Natural Law and the Social Contract. The key is to understand it is based on free will, not force. Now find the will to live your convictions.
Then get involved with your local politics. None of us can do anything about the State or federal government: leave them to God. But go to every meeting of local government where you are legally allowed to vote. Yes, I am telling you to arrange your day so you can go to these meetings. Turn off American idol, forgo that movie and get to those meetings. Be civil, be respectful, but speak up whenever you have the opportunity. Stand for your rights and values. Speak for God and His Natural Law. Tell local leaders when they are wrong. Do not fear, and do not worry about what you will say. As long as you are speaking for Him, He will give you the words you need. But go to your local meetings and make your voice heard. Do not be cowed into staying silent any more.
Then continue this in your private life; in all your public and private relationships. Do not seek confrontation, but when wrong finds you, make your position known. Speak up. Tell people that this is wrong and that is right and then, make your actions agree with your words. Do the right thing – always. Act at all times as though others are watching. Teach your children that they must do the right thing – even if it is hard, if it cost them personally and even if it is against the law. Show the world that you answer to a higher authority than the State.
Add your wallet to the struggle. If you love your things and your comfort more than your rights and liberty, then make no changes in your daily life. But if you love your rights and liberty, add your wallet to the struggle. Do not do business with any major corporation. Start looking for ways to put your money with individuals – not artificial entities. Corporations are NOT “the free market,” you and I are. Yes, this will cost you more money, but it will also strengthen your neighbor while weakening the artificial entities that are destroying our society. Encourage others to join you. This is one of the many legal forms of offensive force we can use against our enemies. And don’t forget the role of taxes in this offensive. Look for every way you can legally keep from paying taxes – even to the point of doing without luxuries just to avoid paying sales taxes (look for private sales of second-hand products, and the barter system).
Do not neglect your vote, but learn to use your vote as a weapon against the system of tyranny. STOP VOTING FOR PARTIES! Parties are a violation of Natural Law. Vote for the person and only for the person – even if you know that person will not win. Reject the Parties’ arguments about “strategy.” Have they ever worked? No! So why should you sell your soul for the promise of something that they have never delivered? Your vote is scriptural; use it scripturally. In the end, you will not answer for your vote to your Party or even your children, you will answer for it to God. So heed the words of our founders when you vote:
Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.
–John Quincy Adams
Finally, pray! It works – if you ask for the right things. Do not ask for the Lord to do our work; ask for the wisdom to know what to do and the strength to do it. Do not ask for God to remove our enemies; ask Him to soften their hearts and open them to God’s voice. Acknowledge the Lord and embrace His will, but ask Him to give us more time. Beg Him to send a revival to our nation, and to cause our people to repent and turn back from our evil and wicked ways. Then trust that He will answer your prayers, but remember that one of those prayers is for His will to be done – not ours. Then read your Bible, go to church and let your family see your relationship with God. But be mindful that they see you and guard your actions accordingly. In short, live the life in which you profess to believe.
[Note: If you think I am trying to push my faith, you’re wrong. I wish for all people to believe in and accept Christ as their Savior, but I also understand that I am not commanded to make this happen – only to offer His invitation by speaking His Gospel. You have to accept Him, and if you don’t, I am commanded to leave you in peace. However, if you sense a bit of trepidation in this post, then you’re right: I fear for this nation and for all mankind. What is coming to this nation is painfully clear to anyone who knows and understands man and his history. For the same reasons, I understand that our founders provided us with the model for how to stave off the inevitable. I just wish that I could somehow help more people to see what I see. But the real purpose of this post is to call those who already see to action – Scripturally based action.]
