I must once again take a few minutes to clarify for some pastors, church leaders and a lot of Christian folk that are not getting a clear message that the Gospel, as in “Sola Scriptura”, lays out the Cultural Mandate summarized very simply by Edmund Burke “’The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.’ In our Constitutional form of government that means we have a mechanism through which to defeat evil. I reference an article by Douglas Wilson that I believe more clearly explains my position.
My intent is to get to the meat of Federalist 38 and 39 in the context of what is so commonly quoted and discussed – America as a democracy. I call this narrative ‘Faux democracy’. The facts are: that we are a Federated Republic with a democratic component. Madison makes this very clear.
I discuss this in relationship to illegals and their insurgency of lawless actions at the national capital and on private property. They are not citizens and have no right to assemble or protest especially in the manners that they have been doing. I will discuss more in relationship to these Federalist Papers.
With that, 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!
And because you keep asking!
