4-20-19 Christian Resistance and Disobedience Today

Introduction: Christian Resistance

Most important this week is the remembrance that mankind is sinful and that God had always planned for salvation to those He calls. This weekend is that calendared time to remember what the Godhead did for us in the death and Resurrection of Jesus.

With that, I don’t expect many or any to take the time to listen to the program. Therefore I am providing a program that I did in August of 2015. The reality is that good governance begins with good governors: individually, at home, in the work place, in bureaucracies, and in elected offices. The problem over the last 150 years is that Christians, especially evangelicals have dismissed the extensibility of the Gospel and left action required to influence all the a fore mentioned aspects of human life.

To that end, we have the right to resist despots and tyrants being the overlords of a nation as these United States.

The Original Program titled “Christian Resistance and Disobedience Today” is at this link location

Christian Resistance:

There are a lot of speakers and authors out there that talk about this. This program is a rerun for 2015 so the tyrant that was freely elected is no longer in office as President but that does not mean that there are not tyrants still in political offices, businesses or bureaucracies.

But, the modern pulpits have not raised up men and women of God that understand the full perspective of engaging the culture and political environment. Therefore, the leadership that should be governing is obviated by social justice warrior and the false narrative of tolerance; to the extent that immorality and evil is subsuming the the rightful place of peaceful living that our Constitutional Republic guarantees.

So the theology of Christian Resistance is not understood. It really means Christian Leadership but…. the pulpits have not developed much of that over the last 150 years.

Disobedience Today:

I will just leave it at this: Go read the Chaplains and Clergy Of The Revolution. Then apply the principles to the present.

Our action Item

is to understand our Christian Founders like Sam Adams who knew what true Christian Resistance is.

And because you keep asking!

4-13-19 TEA Party 10th Anniversary – Viability and Opportunity

TEA Party 10th Anniversary

S. Adams Vancouver Wa

Sam Adams in Vancouver, Wa. Expounding on the Declaration of Independence

To Kick it off here is a short video of reflection:

The full program video further down.

Introduction:

This weekend and on Monday many are celebrating the TEA Party 10th Anniversary. I am one of the people that was there at the beginning. Well, actually, I was there in 1985 when Citizen groups were disparaged and called radical militia. Hmmm, what about the Sons of Liberty, which I have been since the mid-60’s.

What is important to note for this TEA Party 10th Anniversary is that the philosophy and Foundational ideology of Taxed Enough Already are rooted in Patriotic truth that Sam Adams wrote about in 1748. So the Viability of ‘Citizens taxing’ responses is an issues that has great historical significance. Yet, we saw a lull of the rising star of TEA Party almost immediately after a couple years of national prominence. What are the 2019 Opportunities for the remnant organizations?

TEA Party Viability:

4-6-19 Ohio SEL and Electoral College

Introduction:

Brains Of Mush

Creating Minions

I have a return guest Adam Retych who continues to help unwrap Ohio SEL and Electoral College Initiative heading to the ballot. Both topics are HOT and the references have the details for you to investigate.

Ohio SEL (Social Emotional Learning):

Adam joined me last year to open the can of worms of SEL. Unlike Popeye’s Spinach, this is truly a can of lice in the stench of dying worms. Social Emotional Learning is part of the Ohio Education Strategic Plan (see references at the end). This strategy all sounds good but it should make your head explode with the control mechanisms, the child data collection, the state replacing the parents and the formal state indoctrination of what is reason, truth, beliefs and person-hood.

We discuss the Four Pillars of the Strategic Plan with zeroing in on SEL. Continue reading

3-30-19 Christian America Lost and Sam Adams Character

Introduction:  American Christian Lost

On this program I look at several key pointers that we have a great issue of more than 40 years in the making: Christian America Lost. And discuss Sam Adams Character with several surprising parallels to President Trump.

Christian America Lost:

This is clearly brought out by Franklin Graham in a talk he gave at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida. I searched hard to validate the references for this and below is the best of many connections to the quote. Fundamentally, Franklin puts the ownership of the cultural/political travesty of the nation on the church and pulpits.

Interestingly, Mike Huckabee interviews David Horowitz on this topic. David confirms that all that is good in America and its Foundation are from Americas Christian formulation and that the enemy is in full attack. With that, Christians must take to the battle and not lie on the sidewalk to be trampled. Continue reading

3-23-19 Conserving What: History, Constitutionalism, Church or Principles?

Introduction: Conservatism OR Foundational Principles

What is Conservatism about? The question by a noted pastor/theologian is: Conserving What? Are those who call themselves “Conservatives” looking to return to the past in history? Are they trying to return to the Constitution as it was when established? Are they looking to reformation in the church? Or, are they re-establishing Foundational Principles both Biblically, which is the derivative for social, economic and political continuity?

Conservatism:

3-16-19 Social Justice – Washington Policy – Global church

Introduction: Social Justice = Idolaty

In this program regarding: Social Justice – Washington Policy – Global church: Two issues tie together and one is a continuation of past programs. I’m looking at tying the Social Justice and Global church together in two separate segments. I really want to emphasize the connection regrading the international policy statements of George Washington’s Farewell Address and what President Trump is doing. When one looks at the comparisons it is very interesting how there is alignment.

Social Justice:

Sadly Social Justice has hit and is a dividing issue in the churches across the US and the world. Worse, many pastors use the New Testament teaching of Jesus to justify their tolerance and acceptance of it. Well, they are Wrong! Continue reading

3-9-19 George Washington’s Warning and Tory Pastors

Introduction:  Elezar Oswald

George Washington’s Warning of internationalism stresses that our liberties will be lost if we chase after what other countries have instead of holding fast to all that is natural in America. We also look at two Anti-federalists who step us through anarchy. I suggest that in these warnings of the Centinel and Alfred that we can substitute socialism as the root that fosters anarchy.

Lastly, I sat teary eyed in a public place reading and preparing for the video’s of chapters 30 through 33 of the Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution. It pains me deeply that many modern pastors are ‘Tory Traitors’ by being caught up in their ignorance and out-right refusal to know the truth of Christianity in America.

Pastors at the Foundation:

Unlike today where the predictions of Alfred ring true even regarding the Church, this is what was written in 1864 as a recap of the Foundational Pastor: Continue reading

Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution: Chapter 30 – Israel Evans

Israel Evans. 

The quick picture of Israel Evans: — His Character. — Ordained Chaplain in the Army. — Remains with His New Hampshire Brigade through the War. — Stands Beside Washington at Yorktown. — Anecdote of Him and Washington. — His Sermon on the Field of Battle. — Settled at Concord, New Hampshire. — His Death.

Israel Evans was one with and of the heart and spirit of King David. He was finally attuned to military life, battle and the “Extensibility” of the Gospel. His harrowing times in all battles are not well documented but he was next to Washington at Yorktown when a cannon ball hit at their feet. Continue reading

3-2-19 Socialism In the Churches – Part 2

Introduction: Marx

Socialism In The Churches has been a force to deal with since the mid 1800’s. Statistically Christianity is in a decline and therefore morally the nation is following. George Washington and other Founders clearly identified that we must be a moral and virtuous people to have good governance. The downturn is apparent due to the reality of the philosophical shift that occured in the early to mid 1800’s – the churches engaged in the ‘social gospel’ – Not – the ‘extensible’ Reformation Gospel.

The influence of socialism in the churches has opened the door to tolerance which is not a Reformation Principle. The disruption of orthodoxy over the last 100 years resulted in many ideas fostering the main denominations and a number of the 40 mega-churches to not teach the ‘extensibility’ of the Gospel. With 217 modern denominations or non-denominations, what is the core theology that permeates the beliefs of individuals? Going from two predominant denominations at the beginning of the Colonies to these 217 is a significant shift as to why then even the ideas of civil governance have been thought of. Continue reading

Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution: Chapter 29 – David Avery

David Avery.   David Avery

David Avery’s story brought tears to my eyes. I have never met a modern Pastor like him.: — His Birth And Character. — Converted Under Whitfield. — Leaves His Trade To Study For The Ministry. — Enters Dr. Wheelock’s Charity School. — Graduates At Yale College. — Studies Divinity. — A Missionary Among The Indians. — Settled At Gaysboro, Vermont. — His Patriotism. — Raises A Company And Marches To Boston. — Made Chaplain. — Noddle’s Island. — Present At The Battle Of Bunker Hill. — Praying For Victory. — Accompanies Washington Through The Jerseys. — Wounded At Trenton. — At Valley Forge. — At Ticonderoga. — At Bennington. — His Death.

David Avery was “gentle and kind in his manners, and with a heart full of tenderness, he had at the same time a bold and fearless nature which, when roused, it was dangerous to oppose.” He is highly honored by Washington for his heroic acts as a soldier and Minister of God. Most interesting is that this was a young man who worked hard to same money to go to college. The reason he wanted to go was that he became a believer in Jesus through the ministry of George Whitefield. Continue reading
