Don't Take My Word For It

     In a recent conversation concerning evolution, I was actually accused of reading Christian commentary [ this is another absolute no-no, totally out of bounds in their view, because, well just because we're obviously intolerant and hateful]. I do! I like credibility. I like to know that the authors of the material I read are constrained by an absolutist ideology in which the spewing of propaganda in an effort to recruit a following, or effect a desired result is out of bounds. But it is true, I'm just an echo like most every one else. I prefer to echo the truth so lets see what actually came out of the Founding Fathers mouths regarding the virtue of a nation.

     "Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt." ------ Samuel Adams

     "Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure, which denounces against the wicked eternal misery, and insured to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free government." -----  Charles Carrol

     "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion .... Our constitution was made for a moral and religious people, It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." ---- John Adams

     "Our liberty depends on our education, our laws and habits.... it is founded on morals and religion, whose authority reigns in the heart, and on the influence all these produce on public opinion before that opinion governs rulers." ------Fisher Ames, framer of the First Amendment

     "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." ------ Benjamin Franklin

     "Give up money, give up fame, give up science, give up the earth itself and all it contains rather than do an immoral act. And never suppose that in any possible situation, or under any circumstance, it is best for you to do a dishonorable thing, however slightly so it may appear to you. Whenever you are to do a thing, though it can never be known but to your self, ask yourself how you would act were all the world looking at you, and act accordingly. Encourage all your virtuous dispositions, and exercise them whenever an opportunity arises, being assured that they will gain strength by exercise, as a limb of the body does, and that exercise will make them habitual. From the practice of the purest virtue, you may be assured you will derive the most sublime comforts in every moment of life, and in the moment of death." ----- Thomas Jefferson

     "It cannot be emphasized to strongly that ... this great nation was founded by Christians ... not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ." ------- Patrick Henry

     "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of man and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace them all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked, Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the  oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice?
     And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of the refined on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. It is substantially true, that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule, indeed, extends with more or less force to every species of free government. Who, that is a sincere friend to it, can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric? ----- George Washington's [speech upon leaving office]

     Anyone who investigates into the actual writings of our Founding Fathers and espouses the socialist nonsense of separation of church and state, the murder of the helpless, and invasive intrusion of government, is hopelessly ignorant or just a liar like their father. This bears repeating ----- " Where is the security for property, for reputation, FOR LIFE, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, [that's what our politicians and judges do when they swear to uphold the constitution and then laughingly, like Hillary, desert the oath in the next breath] which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice?"

     I would say that it's safe to assume the integrity level of the Founding Fathers is miles above what we see in office today. So what's the driving force of  "our end justifies the means crowd?" Let's look at what comes out the horses mouth and fuels our opposing ideology.

     "The magnitude of a lie always contains a certain flavor of credibility, since the great masses of the people in the very bottom of their hearts tend to be corrupted rather than consciously and purposely evil, and that, therefore, in view of the primitive simplicity, they more easily fall a victim to a big lie than to a little one, since they themselves lie in little things, but would be ashamed of lies that were too big." ------ excerpt from Mein Kampf --- Adolph Hitler
    
     The fact that groups like ACT-UP [militant homosexual group], boastfully admits this as their model, along with intimidation, is becoming the norm not the exception. The widespread use is simply because it works, immoral as it is, but what the heck, the end justifies the means.

     "I will not accept that [creation] philosophically, because I do not want to believe in God. Therefore, I choose to believe in that which I know is scientifically impossible, spontaneous generation arising to evolution." -----George Wald --- Nobel Prize Winner

     "We no longer feel ourselves to be guests in someone else's home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of pre-existing rules. It's our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality.We create the world and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces." ----Jeremy Rifgin ---"Ageny"

     " The goal of this organization is to further communism." ----- Roger Baldwin -----Founder of the ACLU

      Every child in America who enters school at the age of five is mentally ill, because he comes to school with allegiance toward our elected officials, toward our founding fathers, toward our institutions, toward the preservation of this form of government .... Patriotism, nationalism, sovereignty, all that proves that children are sick because the truly well individual is one who has rejected all those things and is what I would call the true international child of the future." --- Dr. Chester Pierce, Harvard University

     "National socialism and Christianity are irreconcilable." ----- Martin Bormann, nazi socialist

     "Democracy is the road to socialism."
     "The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism."
     "Time is everything, man is nothing: he is at most time's carcass."
     "The theory of communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property."
     "The first requisite for the happiness of the people is the abolition of religion." ---- Karl Marx

     In my previous post I stated my belief in the ideological playground and freedom accompanying our Judeo Christian heritage. Unless my thinking process is completely skewed, I"d be hard pressed to see the same playground in the socialist camp, and despite the constant reassurances that it's for my own good, despite the fact that millions of undesirables are always sacrificed for their utopia, and that it has yet to produce anything but a living hell on earth, I'm afraid I'm still somewhat reluctant to support another shot at it even if we are using some of the most advanced manipulating and deceptive techniques ever devised by man.

One more excerpt..."Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against His anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh:  The Lord shall have them in derision.  Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure.  Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.  I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, thou art my Son; this day have I begotten Thee.  Ask of Me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.  Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt bash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.  Be wise now therefore, oh ye kings: be instructed, be judges of the earth.  Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling.  Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little.  Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him."  ---- God speaking from His Holy Scriptures, Psalm 2

While We Were Sleeping

     Where did they come from? Well, although it's not obvious to most  of us, in our country it was spawned in the environment of a free-thinking, CREATED with inalienable rights, Biblically based REPUBLIC, with the ideology of a self-governing people in covenant with a Holy God. While obviously being founded on Christian principles, and in fact a Christian nation, we were not a Christian state where government imposed a forced doctrine. And to the dismay of many, as to freedom of religion, Christianity was the only thing on the menu apart from a remnant of Jews. Our founding fathers, having based our government on precepts pulled out of scripture, built a moral foundation which as Robert Winthrop said "Here, under our own free institutions, it is Religion [Christianity] which must support the State." Just a reminder ---- there were just under 300  of which historians considered Founding Fathers. Yes, There were a few real deists I don't have to expound on as they get most of the coverage, along with the made up deists, in the modern revisionist history books [Remember this is okay because ["the end justifies the means"].  Anyway, my point is this ideological playground was created by the freedoms inherent with the Judeo-Christian heritage we ALL share. This provided the environment for experiments like Robert Owen's, complete with most of the socialist trimmings. Still, his and numerous others, some currently operating today, ultimately fail, or in their eyes, almost worked. If we just woulda, coulda, shoulda. We need to note, at this point, that many of our friends here have the best of intentions and are the result of a long process of conditioning that we need to help them explore. Also, when we get to digging down far enough to see the root of this noxious, odious, parasitic blite on a society already struggling to maintain a virtuous, moral, environment worthy of passing on to our children, it's interesting to note they always seem to be atheists bonded together in the absolute certainty that God doesn't exist.

     So, the question is, how do you overthrow this revoltingly offensive idea that there might be some rules to be obeyed and a God to answer to? Well,on 9-12-1905 Jack London, Thomas Higginson, J.G. Phelps Stokes, Clarence Darrow, and Upton Sinclair formulated a plan to promote Karl Marx's theory of "the dictatorship of the proletariat" using  the well proven method of gradualism [This means a sneaky manner of ensnaring people into something they would never consciously accept].  In seven years there were chapters in 44 colleges, by the mid-thirty's, 125 chapters with John Dewey [ the godfather of progressive education] vice-president of the league. Just a thought, this could be part of the reason people are ever increasingly pulling their children out the Public Sewer System. Of course, this is going to make them targets by our ever so dear diversity [ you know, the end justifies the means ---- my way or the highway ----we respect every one's view, really!] crowd.. As long as we're talking about the propagation of this man's teachings it would be prudent to take a brief look at this person's life [I refuse to use the word man in reference to someone so clearly void of manly traits]. He had six children, three of which died of starvation and two that chose suicide. He died in 1883 with only six attending the funeral. As a Christian, we are compelled into discernment of persons, by scripture, as to their fruit. How thirty percent of the world's population came to be under the bondage of a  person's philosophy who watched  his own children starve is beyond my comprehension. Still his  Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto are revered as such to our deluded dreamers comparably as the Ten Commandment's are to Christians. None of these are surprising to anyone living in America today except in their connection to their authorship. 1. The abolishment of public property. 2. A Heavy or graduated income tax 3. Abolish rights of inheritance 4. Confiscation of property rights 5. Central bank 6. Government ownership of communication and transportation 7.Government ownership of factories and agriculture 8. Government control of labor 9. Corporate farms and regional planning 10,Free education [indoctrination] for all children in public schools. How we got here is obvious. It's called "educational malpractice"[ failure to teach the Fundamentals which under gird living in our self-governing society]. Entrusting education to government controlled indoctrinating centers [ The Public Sewer System], infiltrated by our Godless socialist sabotuers, is disastrous. I've lived long enough to see the devastating results. We all recognize the ten planks as firmly embedded into our laws. Purposeful negligence in the education of our own religious heritage and the unconstitutionally invasive attacks perpetrated by the very same people we elected speak only to the shame of negligence on our part as participants and protectors of our freedoms.

DELUDED DREAMERS

     It would appear I'm somewhat at odds with my socialist friends. Yes, I have a few friends, inclusive of which  I fondly refer to as my deluded dreamers. Actually, I'm quite at odds with their father [He told big whoppers too!] Yes, I believe in that fairy tale out of the Bible about that really, really bad angel. But before the laughter gets too carried away, take a moment to think about my what DD's believe." We came from a rock,[ by blind chance after a huge cosmic burp and billions and trillions of years later][they keep needing more time] and we became homo homosapiens, not to be oppressed and repressed by anything so ridiculous as natural law or a lawgiver when we are smart enough to make our own rules. Wow! Christians are made fun of for the virgin birth while something even more amazing was born, and I've even got to watch it grow up. Here it is folks, no strings attached, based on the best atheistic, absolutlessssss, evolutionary, whatever way the wind blows, humanistic philosophic masterpiece ------------ The Means Justifies the End Crowd!!!! Actually, I don't think they were born by chaos or blind chance. 

     And although it [ the I am god see me bore delusion] does appeal to my more abased,selfish,greedy nature it still runs contrary to reason. This naturally might seem strange to someone not walking under God's covering. Anyway, I need my absolutes as much as you absolutelessers [I made that word up --- cute huh!] do and believe me they have more than their share. I love their logic. I say " Stealing is wrong, period, you know one of those absolutes". They say "What if someone stole because they were starving?" This is a slick ploy. I thought we were talking about stealing, not the motive for stealing. Stealing isn't motive. It's an act not a reason. Motive doesn't negate the act buts allows opportunity for correction. Still, sometimes they don't get it til someone steals their car stereo. And, still not deterred, they charge ahead [this proves they can multiply].When someone does something really bad against someone that's different [I think we're all a little different --- but they have the wisdom to decipher these difficult categories ---- remember they're the homo homosapiens] that's really hateful! This could be triple bad killing someone hatefully. I'm still wondering how you kill someone any other way. So now we've got murder the crime, [I'm going out on a limb and saying that's absolutely wrong --- stupid fundamentalist] motive,[accompanied with a good dose of hate] and our specially designated group of perpetrators carefully chosen by our homo homosapien friends. One law, identical motive, two punishments equates to target practice for our DD friends. Can we all say bullseye! You can if you're in the cross hairs of our DD friends. But then, how can we all be equal under the eyes of the law when the law is just the floating crap table of our DD friends. Apparently, they're the real authorities on hate, therefore the more able to dole it out accordingly. This could all be somewhat disconcerting if we weren't assured that the means will justify the end.

Fundamentalism and Basketball

What I am is fundamental. What I'm not is a writer or a computer addict. My wife set me up with e-mail --- I've never checked it. I'm only doing this now because of the confusion created by an unscrupulous social engineering constituency bent on discrediting the Bible in favor of a relative based socialized indoctrination into a Godless self-indulgent society by a biased, accommodating press. 

Taking your definition of fundamentalist from the newspaper is like hiring a drunk to chauffeur your family through town, daily, as they see to the routine of daily affairs. The word fundamentalist comes from a document in the 1920s called the five fundamentals of the faith. 1. The deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, 2.  The virgin birth, 3.The blood atonement, 4. The bodily resurrection, 5. The inerrancy of the scriptures. These are what used to be the unifying ties that bonded the Church together, thus making it clear why it is so urgent for these people to discredit this bond. Why this is so hidden from our church leadership is multi-fold, so I'll talk about basketball instead.

Basketball also has fundamentals ---- 1. Dribbling, 2. Passing, 3. Shooting, 4. Guarding, all of which if were tampered with, one would immediately hear the cry "Foul!  These are the fundamentals ----- It's not basketball if you don't have to dribble.'' Well, why can't you shoot at whatever basket you like? Why can't I pass to the referee? Why do we need a referee??? Now that' a good question! Why all the boundaries? It's simple ---- because it wouldn't be basketball without them. All I'm saying is you can reform Christianity all you want, create God in your image [why not return the favor], but don't expect me to call a dead cow anything but what it is. Conformity to an implacable relativistic ideal is not unity, rather it's akin to trying to hold smoke in your hand. Here's a thought ---- restoration [not reformation] on a foundation given us by Jesus alone.
