I thought it appropriate to consider what is would be like to make the movie ‘Escape From CHAZ’. As I noted in last weeks program, I am not remotely surprised by the upheaval or the emergence of the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone ‘CHAZ.’ As any of us who have been watching what has happened in education, particularly over the last fifty plus years, is the inculcation of Marxists agitation, the withdraws of Foundational Christianity from all of life and the expulsion of truthful foundational history.
To see the cauldron of cultivated indoctrination frothing and boiling over with the witches brew of anarchy and Bolshevism running the likes of CHAZ and the riots across the land is the utter failure of the establishment churches in these United States. The only means for an ‘Escape From CHAZ’ is another ‘Great Awakening’ with a foundational and historical – Biblical reformation of the churches in America. Bad theology is at the core of the unrest
Zwingli’s Political Theology:
In the 1771 Candidus article that I referenced in last weeks program, Sam Adams quoted for Zuinglius or more often recognizes as Ulrich Zwingly. Most folks have no clue who that was. Yet, he whas one of the principle Protestant Reformers making his mark on the transformation of Christianity and Politics a year or so before Martin Luther. In modern parley, Zwingli would be considered a Theonomist. In Zurich, he facilitated the melding of Christian leadership in public governance.
According to the McClintock and Strong Biblical Cyclopedia, “Zwingli was a bold Reformer, an able scholar, in eloquent preacher, a patriotic republican, and farsighted statesman. He lacked the genius and depth of Luther and Calvin, the learning of Melancthon and Oecolampadius; but he was their equal in honesty of purpose integrity of characters heroic courage, and devotion to the cause of Reformation, and surpassed them in liberality is prominent intellectual trait was clear, strong common-sense.”
Although vastly different than many modern consideration of the application of God’s law in every aspect of Life, most major denominations and the popular mega-pastors reject the Political Theology of Zwingli. To that extent, I am somewhat favorable in the context of the likes of Sam Adams and other American Founders in that they believed that we must have ‘Moral and Virtuous’ people to have moral and virtuous elected so as to govern via our Constitutional Republic in any reasonable manner. Over the course of the las 100 plus years, the theology of the American churches has been to remove itself from cultural, political and anything to do with governance outside of the immediate church or denominational walls.
Hence, the political unrest in these Unites States and a consideration of what does it mean to Escape From CHAZ.
The Walled Zones of Miscreants:
To often an unkept basement fills with the smell of mildew and then progresses to the likes of black mold which then becomes a hazard to all. It takes a lot of cleansing to eradicate black mold and often the remnant is still there. Yet, if the causes for the start of the mildew are not addressed then the exposure causes sever illness with the potentials of death.
In the last segment of the program I expound on the symptoms of black mold in society being the miscreants walking about. Just so you are aware, based on the Thesaurus, I would not be pointing any fingers except back at ones self when I talk about the miscreants and Walled Zones. No, I’m not siding the the mildew rampaging on the streets but, there is a deep context to what is happening in these United States.
There is one and only one fix for what is happening and it is dependent on blood spilt in the past. Look at the year of our calendars and you can zero in on that spilt blood. The solution to the mold problem is a cleansing. The way to deal with the miscreant is the same as that which was settled with spilt blood.
Capitol Hill, Seattle, Washington Update:
This is from a police officer in Seattle. Keeping the identity under wraps for all the obvious reasons.
“Hey guys, I have a little down time so here is an update on things here. Absolute madness here. Can’t even express it all. Day 12 for us and our Mayor and chief abandoned a major precinct and gave it to the anarchists. Unthinkable. 9 blocks of our city under the complete control of these terrorists. No joke. This is unreal. No police, no fire dept, no sanity allowed in. They have an armed force patrolling, manning checkpoints and stopping cars and citizens at gun point. They are creating a currency, an ID system, a supply system that includes food, water, ammo and chemical weapons. They have access to the precinct and have made it their hq. Our “leaders” are completely silent and the city council is completely complicit. Yes, they have been on the front lines WITH the anarchists and yes, last night one council member let about 200 into city hall. The warlord in charge of the new “capitol hill autonomous zone” (CHAZ) drives a tesla and has been arrested for drugs, guns, pimping and crimes against children and is on a federal child porn watch list. He carries an AK-47 and has already started abusing people inside. WTF? You can’t make this up. We have been castrated. There is no recovering from this. We can’t go near the zone and have been warned by our dept to stay away. We are only working for each other now. We have been in battles where these psychopaths have hit us with rocks, cinderblocks, homemade napalm, and even IEDs. Multiple injuries and THEN we gave up the precinct. Now the guns are out. This city can burn. I’m working on my exit plan now. The city and state hates us and gives us no support, in fact the leaders are actively supporting this very real insurgency. Yet, all you hear in the media is that they are merely peaceful protesters. This is real. There is a part of our country that is no longer under our control. People need to know. This is not about race. It’s about control. Share it, but DON’T say my name.”
Sam Adams Wisdom
From the Speech regarding the Declaration of Independence, August 1, 1776
‘Truth loves an appeal to the common-sense of mankind. Your unperverted understandings can best determine on subjects of a practical nature. The positions and plans which are said to be above the comprehension of the multitude may be always suspected to be visionary and fruitless. He who made all men hath made the truths necessary to human happiness obvious to all. Our forefathers threw off the yoke of popery in religion: for you is reserved the honor of levelling the popery of politics. They opened the Bible to all, and maintained the capacity of every man to judge for himself in religion. Are we sufficient for the comprehension of the sublimest spiritual truths, and unequal to material and temporal ones? Heaven hath trusted us with the management of things for eternity, and man denies us ability to judge of the present, or to know from our feelings the experience that will make us happy. “You can discern,” say they, “objects distant and remote, but cannot perceive those within your grasp. Let us have the distribution of present goods, and cut out and manage as you please the interests of futurity.” This day, I trust the reign of political protestantism will commence. We have explored the temple of royalty, and found that the idol we have bowed down to, has eyes which see not, ears that hear not our prayers, and a heart like the nether millstone. We have this day restored the Sovereign, to whom alone men ought to be obedient. He reigns in Heaven, and with a propitious eye beholds his subjects assuming that freedom of thought, and dignity of self-direction which He bestowed on them. From the rising to the setting sun, may His kingdom come.
Having been a slave to the influence of opinions early acquired, and distinctions generally received, I am ever inclined not to despise but pity those who are yet in darkness. But to the eye of reason what can be more clear, than that all men have an equal right to happiness? Nature made no other distinction than that of higher or lower degrees of power of mind and body. But what mysterious distribution of character has the craft of statesmen, more fatal than priestcraft, introduced?
According to their doctrine, the offspring of perhaps the lewd embraces of a successful invader, shall, from generation to generation, arrogate the right of lavishing on their pleasures a proportion of the fruits of the earth, more than sufficient to supply the wants of thousands of their fellow-creatures: claim authority to manage them like beasts of burden, and without superior industry, capacity, or virtue, nay, though disgraceful to humanity by their ignorance, intemperance, and brutality, shall be deemed best calculated to frame laws, and to consult for the welfare of society. Were the talents and virtues, which Heaven has bestowed on men, given merely to make then more obedient drudges, to be sacrificed to the follies and ambition of a few? Or, were not the noble gifts so equally dispensed with a divine purpose and law, that they should as nearly as possible be equally exerted, and the blessings of Providence be equally enjoyed by all? Away then, with those absurd systems, which, to gratify the pride of a few, debase the greatest part of our species below the order of men. What an affront to the King of the universe, to maintain that the happiness of a monster, sunk in debauchery and spreading desolation and murder among men, of a Caligula, a Nero, or a Charles, is more precious in his sight than that of millions of his suppliant creatures, who do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with their God! No! In the judgment of Heaven there is no other superiority among men, than a superiority in wisdom and virtue. And can we have a safer model in forming ours? The Deity then has not given any order or family of men authority over others, and if any men have given it, they only could give it for themselves. Our forefathers, ’tis said, consented to be subject to the laws of Great Britain. I will not, at present, dispute it, nor mark out the limits and conditions of their submission: but will it be denied that they contracted to pay obedience, and to be under the control of Great Britain, because it appeared to them most beneficial in their then present circumstances and situations? We, my countrymen, have the same right to consult and provide for our happiness, which they had to promote theirs. If they had a view to posterity in their contracts, it must have been to advance the felicity of their descendants. If they erred in their expectations and prospects, we can never be condemned for a conduct which they would have recommended had they foreseen our present condition.’
And because you keep asking!
