Resistance to Tyranny is Obedience to God

It seems some Americans think that if we just obey the police, they will never do anything bad to us. That is unAmerican and unChristian. Christians must resist tyranny. The police are behaving as if they are an occupying army in enemy territory.

Never Trust a Government Official Who Demands Unconditional Obedience

Check out this 27 second video:

The Kelly File Interviews David Clarke

This guy comes off as a conservative, but what he says in this video is the exact opposite of conservatism or what it ought to be. Below are a few awesome comments from Bojidar Marinov.

The key word is “comply.” He doesn’t give any promise that the police are going to give only lawful orders. In fact, he assumes that cops are also going to give unlawful orders because he says that we should leave grievances for later. We can’t have grievances if the orders are only lawful. Which means he wants us to obey ALL orders, lawful and unlawful, and complain later, but he doesn’t promise that the unlawful orders won’t leave some permanent damage: like an innocent person executed like a dog. What good is to complain later when the damage is done?

Submit only as long as you need to protect your life and the lives of your loved ones. But this submission has nothing to do with allegiance or willful obedience. Just as with any occupation force, you need to do everything you can to make it as expensive as possible for them to make you submit. Just as we did under Communism: Submit only after the government has spent tons of resources and energy and nerves to make you submit, and then submit just a notch before you are killed. This is the Biblical way to treat an occupation force. Solzhenitsyn gives some good ideas in his books.

A someone who has lived under Communism, I have a rule: NEVER TRUST A GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL WHO DEMANDS UNCONDITIONAL OBEDIENCE! No matter how good and righteous and serious and trustworthy he looks like, he is a monster. No honest person demands unconditional obedience to himself; only those who want your life, liberty, and property want unconditional obedience.

So, we need to fight tyranny smart, but one thing is absolutely sure: making it easier for tyrants to rule over you is the stupidest way to fight tyranny. Solzhenitsyn explains it. The smartest way is this: MAKE IT EXPENSIVE FOR THEM. Talk back to them, demand that they show you proofs for the legality of their actions, take your time when submitting to orders, film them always when you can, make every move of theirs public and subject to scrutiny, speak against the very concept of police, show how we don’t need police, point to corruption in the police, and always in your conversations point to the inherent immorality of the police job. Make them be ashamed that they are cops. This is the way to deal with an occupation army. Anything else is submission to tyrants, and therefore disobedience to God.

A standing army is an occupation army. It must be resisted in the best possible, wisest possible, most effective way.

It’s a completely modern misunderstanding. After all, it was the Reformation that laid the foundation for so many revolutions that changed Europe and the world. That theology of unconditional allegiance is actually paganism, a belief in the divinity of the state and its agents. Unconditional allegiance is owed only to God. If you proclaim such allegiance to the state, you have made the state a god.

America Needs the Gospel

I asked 15 people (mostly young men) at the Christmas parade tonight: If you died today and stood before God and He said, “Why should I let you into heaven?” what would you say?

Sadly, not one had the right answer, though several later claimed to be Christians. One said his dad asks him that question all the time, but he couldn’t remember the answer. Another said, “Because he is a Christian and does good things for people.”

In case you don’t know the right answer, Jesus Christ is God in the flesh and lived a sinless life, died on the cross and rose from the dead. His blood is the only payment God will accept for sin. Out of gratitude for what Jesus did, we must repent and trust Him alone for our salvation. There is no other way to have our sins forgiven.

Does Romans 13:1-7 Teach Blind Obedience?

mayhewIn 1749, Pastor Jonathan Mayhew argued against the “blind obedience to the government” interpretation to Romans 13 that some Christians take when he proclaimed, “It is blasphemy to call tyrants and oppressors God’s ministers. They are more properly ‘The Messengers of Satan to buffet us.’ No rulers are properly God’s ministers, but such as are ‘just, ruling in the fear of God.’ When once magistrates act contrary to their office, and the end of their institution when they rob and ruin the public, instead of being guardians of its peace… they immediately cease to be the ordinance and ministers of God, and no more deserve that glorious character than common pirates and highwaymen.”

“Thus, upon a careful review of the apostle’s reasoning in this passage, it appears that [Paul’s] arguments to enforce submission are of such a nature as to conclude only in favor of submission to such rulers as he himself describes; i.e., such as rule for the good of society, which is the only end of their institution. Common tyrants and public oppressors are not entitled to obedience from their subjects by virtue of anything here laid down by the inspired apostle.”

More Silliness From Fantasy Land

It seems that many Americans are living in a fantasy land. Pretending that we can achieve utopia if we can just pass the right laws. No one will ever get their feelings hurt again. Everyone is normal, (except the people who say that not everyone is normal). We can help transgendered transvestite weirdos by letting them choose the bathroom that matches the gender in their depraved mind rather than the gender dictated by their chromosomes.

The sad part is that the people living in this fantasy land aren’t only the pervert kid and his sick parents. Judges live there, too.

The only right thing for this school district to do is not let boys use the girl’s bathroom, and do everything they can to avoid paying these people. It’s more important to do the right thing than to kow tow to a bunch of weirdos.

This Looks Good

ww_2_thumbI first heard of Walter E. Williams when he was guest hosting for Rush Limbaugh. He’s excellent. Excellent might as well be his middle name.

There’s a show coming out about him and his beliefs and I’m going to keep checking to see when I will be able to watch it for sure.
