12-19-20 Political Theology: The Real Tea Party of 1773

The Real Tea Party  The Real Tea Party

I was reminded by a friend that this past week was the remembrance of The Real Tea Party that made a statement in 1773. Your question is – What does The Real Tea Party have to do with Political Theology?

There were two principles of the Reformation that were key in allowing Liberty to be understood and the locally elected to act within the clear understanding of those principles. Sadly in our present situation, we will most likely not see a Real Resistance as with the Tea Party of 1773.

With frustration you ask – Why not? Continue reading

12-12-20 Corporate Moral Derision – Casus Romae

Corporate Moral Derision  Corporate Moral Derision

How is Corporate Moral Derision related to Casus Romae? The simple answer in respect to the ‘fall of Rome’ – Casus Romae – is a societal determination and implementation of morals and ethics. I’m not going to rehash the ‘Fall of the Roman Empire’ since that was written eons ago and had some sloppy conclusions regarding Christianity. I am primarily reintroducing you to Richard Baxter and John Witherspoon regarding the great concept of moral and ethics in business and society while giving a comparison to now and ‘Yes, your company can force you to take the vaccine.’

Something I found was written by historian Will Durant – “A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself within. The essential causes of Rome’s decline lay in her people, her morals, her class struggle, her failing trade, her bureaucratic despotism, her stifling taxes, her consuming wars.” Continue reading

2-29-20 Murder, Patriotism and Bernie

Murder, Patriotism and Bernie

Wow, Murder, Patriotism and Bernie sounds like a swamp movie or book. It is in fact the present, history reflected in the present and a unique reference about socialism.

Murder  Mommy tried....

Returning to Ohio to live after leaving for the military when the ’70s just rolled in has had its awakenings to change. Yet, Ohio is systemic of the nation in that moral continuity has degenerated and the bastion of active moralism, the churches, have left the battle-field. Therefore, Murder, a most heinous head of the Hydra is codified in law without restriction.

Murder – an acceptable component of moral continuity? When a mother watches her new born twins die on her chest because the law says – they are too young to receive care after being born. I have a bit to say on this topic. Continue reading

12-7-19 Morality, Common Sense, Mental Illness

Morality, Common Sense and Mental Illness

Morality, Common Sense and Mental Illness have direct correlations as one further examines the sermon of Timothy Dwight. We see that individuals in America are seeking ‘happiness’ by all means that can be contrived. Obviously by the mental and political state of US, reality and observation prove none of the theoretical man-made options fulfill the search.

I am introducing it this week but to the extent that there are denominations and independent Bible teaching churches/pastors that are falling for the deceptions of climate change, harboring illegals, caving to the morally depraved and have zero true insight to US foundational history…. well, next week will take more of that on. But for now just go back to all the programs I did regarding the Kozak Plan and you will get the full picture of what is occurring with the deamoncrat majority.

Remember, this Kozak Plan is fully functioning in every aspect of our society and governance. Proof is parents allowing and even taking their young children to ‘library transgender reading hour.’ Continue reading

11-9-19 Kingdom, Profiles In Courage

Kingdom, Profiles In Courage  Profiles In Courage

I have this very Reformation and American Puritan concept of Kingdom, which demands reviewing Profiles In Courage. Now I mention JFK’s book in that he discusses several individuals that stood against the tide of political pressure from their peers.

Making it clear that I am not a classical theologian, understand that I have studied the application of Reformation and Puritan theology in some great detail. To that, Kingdom is a topic that reaches into governance in the present as much as it is a reality when one dies. Understanding who the King of kings is and what that means for living in this world is critical to governing in ones own life, family, community, work and our Constitutional Republic – be that a State or National.

Profiles In Courage

Living according to Reformation – American Puritan concepts like Samuel Adams requires correct understanding of Kingdom and acting with Profiles In Courage. To stand against tyranny in our Republic, the knowledge of such must be rightly taught and inculcated in our youth again. JFK has John Quincy Adams as his first example of this. Do you know who John Quincy Adams is or what he was doing at twelve years old? Consider that our youth today have less of a clue than you and then consider young Mr. Adams position in international affairs at that age. Continue reading

10-26-19 Evangelical Failure, Roman Catholic Exceptionalism

Evangelical Failure

In the present Culture and Foundational Political wars, the headlines are awash with Evangelical Failure. I consider this Texas case as a prime example: “Report: Judge Rules Jeffrey Younger Can Share Guardianship over Son James”. My argument is that the Jury of twelve had no moral conviction except for one person. The Jury was willing to let a boy be chemically castrated and turned into a girl because a psycho-bable mother (who is a Phd) is attempting to prove a diagnosis of “gender-dysphoria”.

If it were not for the Evangelical Failure in the pulpits, education and family this case would not have even come to a trial. Thankfully, the presiding judge had the moral instance to allow the Father to have joint custody and medical decision making authority. Thus overriding the Jury decision. Continue reading

10-12-19 Morality and Virtue Ensures Liberty

Morality and Virtue Ensures Liberty  Self-actualizing

Sam Adams predicts our present governance and political situation. His letter to James Warren stresses that Morality and Virtue ensures Liberty.

Adams defines that this must be a definitive aspect of education. By not inculcating our youth in morality and the mechanisms of virtue we loose the prospects of maintaining Liberty. Continue reading

8-10-19 Sovereignty, Morality, Liberty and Mayhew

Sovereignty, Morality, Liberty and Mayhew:

There is a lot of information that can be broken down very specifically on the topics of Sovereignty, Morality, Liberty and Mayhew. Yet these are all very Liberation Theologyconcrete components of the complete principled positioning of our National Foundation.

When considering the evil that occurred in El Paso and Dayton, these core principles are the missing elements being talked about and considered in the solution to not only El Paso and Dayton but the daily mass-murdering of the unborn.

Instead we have the destructive teachings of the likes of the Gospel Coalition promoting ‘Critical Theory‘ (including Gender Studies, Cultural Studies, Critical Race Theory, Critical Pedagogy, Feminist Studies, Anthropology, Literary Criticism)’the Social Justice Movement‘, ‘Liberation Theology‘, and ‘Cultural Marxism‘. These are all philosophies that Johnathan Mayhew and the Pastors of our Founding era condemned. Yes, There is Nothing New Under The Sun! Continue reading

5-25-19 Mental Health Is A Moral Issue

Mental Health – Moral Issue  Biblical Worldview solves Most Mental Health

I can unequivocally attest to the reality and fact that Mental Health Is A Morality Issue. Now, with being on a Mental Health and Recovery Services Board for over a year and listening to agencies describe their programs for ‘those in need’; I have to say that over 80% of what I hear as Mental Health Issues is in reality – Morality nonexistent in schools, homes and community.

The litany of humanistic solutions is in reality going to continue the degeneration of our American Foundational Heritage. That litany sings as the Marx, Trotsky, Hobbs, Freud, Rauch, Hall, Wunt, Pavlov, and Jung choir. All of this virtually unanswered by Reformation Biblical solutions.

The only major ‘church’ organization involved in Mental Health is Catholic Charities and I would not say they use a Reformation Biblical Model.

Society A Moral Issue

9-1-18 Technology Credibility and Business Morality

This is it!  September 1, I am off of Facebook! Some have asked what make me so sanctimonious in criticism of the platform and what do I know about technology? I explain my development in the digital world from building a computer to being an executive developing new companies.

Most importantly we need to have an honest conversation about morality in the Board Room. We have become a nation of ‘mammon seekers’ over Liberty protectors. When technology becomes the et al. to every issue in life and we have new oligarchs consolidating power: then we have some really serious things to consider.

I really would like you to consider this key resource from the Founding era. It is the “Continental Association, 20 October 1774” which details “Non-importation, Non-consumption, and Non-exportation Agreement”. My argument will always be that the only and proper way to impact the techno-oligarchs is by Non-consumption! Think about the sacrifices that the people of the Colonies accepted but even more so think about the explosion of new businesses and industry that came to be by these actions.

With that, remember Proverbs 9:1 – There is nothing new under the sun!

The mirrors of history come to reflective reality here on Samuel Adams Returns.

Oh… on a side note, check out the article on Local Levies that I’ve written at this Blog.

And because you keep asking!
