I am bringing you my Christmas greeting as well as a short comment about RC Sproul and John Kotmair. These two men being giants in there respective camps having dynamic impact with all that they touched in person or virtually. The Foundation of both is their Faith in Jesus.
I’m continuing with John Knox Appellation and how it is absolutely applicable right now. This is something that is not taught anywhere that I’m aware of but that may be because I don’t know all that’s happening out there. Yet, the results seem to prove that my perspective is reality. I am appealing to those who call themselves Christians in both political parties to come to grips with what Knox is saying regarding their responsibilities to God’s laws and mind over that of men. This is also pertinent to those in business as well.
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.
A few programs back I introduced the “Doctrine of the Minor/Lesser Magistrate.” In this program I bring to light how Sam Adams understood this “Doctrine” and in reality lived it as the quintessential Lesser Magistrate.
OK, just to get it straight on the definition, quintessential in this context means: representing the most perfect or typical example of a quality.
Sam Adams from his first elected position to the last term of office as the Governor of Massachusetts understood who the Great Sovereign is and how that applies to every aspect of life and governance. Sam Adams fully applied the “Doctrine of the Minor/Lesser Magistrate” during his life. I hope for moderns that can understand and apply this truth in the present.
