Last Sunday was the global celebration of the Reformations 500 year anniversary. This is one of the most memorable events in all of history in that it re-established the truth of the salvation of man from sin only through the Grace of God and only in Faith in Jesus the Christ. But what was not often spoken of in congregations regarding the Reformation is what it means socially and politically. The Reformation also challenged the rightful authority of kingship of humans and re-established the existence of the only rightful hierarchy of political authority again being in King Jesus.
The story of this plays out in the siege of Magdeburg and the Magdeburg Confession – One little city holding out and winning against the ‘Holy Roman Empire’. It is also about the true understanding of Romans 13 and the Doctrine of The Lesser Magistrate. You see, the Founding Fathers of America understood every aspect of the Reformation. Samuel Adams studied theology before he studied law. He had a clear understand of these Principles that are true from Genesis to Revelations and every aspect of governance in the context of corruptible human kind.
There has been much to continue to follow in the news especially that which will deal with the realities of corruption. Everyone prefers to hit on emotion and not build on what is critical to making the Republic work as intended. Most are functioning on their basic American DNA. There is more, the root of our national heritage.
What about Loyalty and Sedition? Well, there is more to it than I can even begin to discuss.
This week I am delving back into Ben Rush’s work on the ‘Thoughts Upon the Mode of Education Proper In A Republic’ from the middle. There the perspective of Patriotism and American Culture is discussed. I reference a YouTube video that I really like with Doug Wilson (see the references). I get back to Ben Rush and bring in the hard hits on UNESCO.
President Trump pulled US out of UNESCO again for cultural reasons. Reagan pulled US out for poor management reasons. It was George W. Bush that put us back in. I’m going to introduce you to the two best reads on education and UNESCO there are in the whole library of books on this issue. The bottom line is that we should defund every aspect of UNESCO and completely void all treaty aspects that have US encumbered and slaves to the destruction of every entity under its auspices. Great starting point for getting out of UN since UNESCO has so many tentacles’.
As always, remember: The Founders wanted us to gain knowledge and get involved! Being a Citizen is an Active involvement in our political life! Let’s get our feet on the street for this time is critical!
Join me on Saturday’s program to value the Founders perspective of the mirrors of history and the reality of the present.
Thoughts Upon The Mode Of Education Proper In A Republic
The tragedy in Las Vegas is more easily assessed by admitting that we have degenerated in our educational system; because of a lack of knowledge, we see the results in our intentional move away from Founders Original Intent. As I began last week to talk about Witherspoon as a Founder and educator, this week I begin to discuss the treatise written by the gent that got Witherspoon to come to Princeton.
I’m not going to be long in the promo. Simply the key words are ‘inculcate’, ‘Liberty’, ‘Patriotism’, ‘Christianity’, ‘constitutionalism’ and ‘Republic’. I’m not going to get into the depth of it this week but… the battle of education in truth is not new; it was a battle even in 1786. Hmmm, maybe that is why we saw constitutionalism degenerate by the early 1800’s! I’m inclined to go with what Benjamin Rush has to say for our Republic.
I was taken aback Not by the Judge Moore win but by the concession speech by Luther Strange. I had to ponder why Sen. Strange made a number of great statements about his personal faith and that in my book it did not line up with taking money from the swamp. I could not find the reconciliation of his comments and then I thought of the sermon on last Sunday by Alistair Begg, the writings of John Witherspoon and the amazing find in Federalist #10.
This program is my simple citizen analysis of the Moore-Strange run off.
I believe that we need to raise up Constitutional Candidates and Vet the candidates Constitutionally because as you know conservatism is misleading as I point out in “Not ALL Conservatives Are Constitutionalists”. Continue reading →
A message from a ‘simple Citizen’ is what this week is about. Too often in our modern times even those with great intentions create an oligarchy. From my simple perspective the nation is floundering at the root utilizing one of our most sacred tools for changing our ‘Framework’ of governance is the work of ‘small groups of well intentioned people and organizations’ that are not properly focused on the ‘real issues’ nor the methods for lasting solutions. That is the point of todays program!
A Convention of States has been and continues to be a waste of time, effort and financial resources that will do absolutely ‘Nothing’ to deal with how Congress is mired in the swamp. I will discuss my thoughts on this and two primary solution recommendations.
This week the attacks on morality, Francis Scott Key, Constitutionalism and Christianity got the best of me. I have been deep diving into the writings by yes, the cousin of Sam, John Adams. I have read John Adams several times and referenced him as well. I am always impressed with his letters to his wife and Thomas Jefferson; His keen intellect regarding the law, Constitutionalism and Christianity. To the extent that he wrote: “Let them revere nothing but religion, morality and liberty.” – Letter to Abigail Adams (15 April 1776)
Instead of referring more of what John Adams wrote, today I speak about my continuing study in Jeremiah. I am still intent on recording an exhortation on Jeremiah but that is for another day.
This week I’m a bit all over the map since there is so much going on. Yet, the focus has to be on understanding the Senate! Just a reminder that the Anti-federalists predicted what is going on at this time. Look up again the definition of ‘cabal’.
We have to be people of action. We have to stop whining and yapping on social media! Instead let’s use it as the tools to drive our elected at all levels to:
Clean out the bureaucrats that do not uphold their oaths to the Constitution as intended.
Demand that Founders and Framers Original Intent be re-established in policy making.
Defund programs as well as reverse policies that are not in alignment with Original Intent for Constitutionalism in our form of Republic
Review this from a couple of weeks ago and get these solutions on the ‘To Do List’ for active involvement.
What we continue to see this week on the streets, from the political class, intelligentsia and the sophistry media is the Kozak Plan executed (archives about this here). It is absolutely clear that they have every desire to be and do all things against Constitutionalism and the Republic.
Critical in this is the fact that they are moral degenerates as defined by the Pulpits of the Revolution. Sadly, the modern Pulpits and education system have devolved from what #FoundersOriginalIntent is for the nation and the Citizenry. It is clear that morality outside of the Judeo-Christian worldview is not the morality expected by the Founders for self-governance and then governing of We The People.
