The following video will make it very clear that anarchism is all about rebellion against authority, from the local cop to God himself. Anarchists see the evil in society and government, and they conclude that if man were free of all constraint and authority, he would become civilized and at peace.
They do not take into consideration the nature of man: Jeremiah 17:9 (KJV) The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
If you want to take the time to understand what anarchism is as a philosophy, watch this video. I believe any Bible believer needs to understand what anarchy is, AND we all need to understand that anarchists are very much with us in this nation.
Did you see the parallelism between Anarchists and Libertarians? The only difference is in degree. BOTH are tarred with the same stick. Ron Paul is merely a very civilized anarchist. You Christians who promote Ron Paul are really perverted in your thinking, AND you are very dangerous when you are included in local church Christian fellowship. Why? Answer: You are NOT devoted to the authority of God in your life-- YOU are the center of your universe.
Any pastor worth his salt will run any Libertarian right back out the door who tries to enter a Bible believing local church.
President Obama's lack of legitimacy as to his birth, along with the hate language and cussing going on by Liberal Democrats, is daring the Anarchists of America to come out of their holes and act. There is, for the first time in many years, no direction to this rebellion. This is the stuff of which the Russian Bolshevik Revolution was made. Spontaneous revolution is deadly and vicious. It also is like saying "Sick um" to a pit bull in how it effects national and civil rulers.
A Bible believer must never gloat over these events, for they may lead right on to national collapse of order and Martial Law.
Hillary Clinton was an anarchist as she befriended cop haters during college days. Obama was mentored by Bill Ayers, a cop killer, and Van Jones IS an anarchist of the Black stripe. Acorn was operating on an anarchist model as they did what "made room" for people to do anything they wished to do, like run whore houses funded by Federal money.
There has been a little anarchism in the soul of every sinner since Cain slew Abel rather than do his sacrifice to God over the right way. Cain was saying, "God, go chase yourself-- I will be the only kid on the block, and you will HAVE to accept my sacrifice, or get none, after Abel is dead."
I am now convinced that there are two anarchy elements in the USA:
The Bible believer must NEVER allow anarchy to enter his life in any form for it will change his zeal for the Word of God or for the glory of Jesus Christ. Anarchy is NOT an option in the Old and New Testament. God shows what he thinks of anarchy early on:
The end of the story:
There is a great difference between speaking rebuke, even to the king, and anarchy against the king. John the Baptist rebuked King Herod for his personal sin, and Christ later praised John for his zeal and faithfulness to God.
I believe that we are seeing a great divide in the USA between two anarchist forces-- on one side, Obama and his mass of Liberal antagonists, and on the other side, ground zero common anarchists who stand against the powers above. This divide may well result in war in the streets, or it may result in a Mahatma Gandhi type passive resistance which brings down the Federal system. It will start with a tax rebellion.
You need to understand that the USA was started in anarchy over taxes and the authority of the King of England. This was NOT a God honoring event. Nowhere in the Bible does God exalt those who rebel against the king, especially in rebellion against taxation.
Tax rebellion is the easiest trick to draw Bible believers into anarchy, for the reasoning is, that by not paying your taxes, you are not supporting abortion and other filthy programs of the Federal Government. I know people who have bought into this, and their minds are totally dead to truth. The biblical commands to render to Caesar are rubbish to them.
One fellow, when I pointed out that Jesus paid his taxes, said, "That is where he made his mistake." The guy at once sputtered and gulped, for his conscience slew him. He was a Bible believer, but his evil mind was so darkened by anarchy that he spoke blasphemy against Christ before he caught himself.
The reason I am so exercised about this is because I KNOW there is much anarchy at the church house of America, especially in Fundamental and Baptist churches. It is wicked, and I hate it. You see, it is in my old nature and yours. If the old nature takes the high ground, rebellion against God is next.
A Christian who rebels against God may soon be attended by a devil who causes him to destroy himself.
A Christian who rebels against the IRS may soon find himself in prison.
I know a Bible believing man who went to prison for tax rebellion. He must have figured out that it was not worth it, for he never talked about it again after leaving prison.
Rebellion, anarchy, is a very high order of evil to God:
Samuel speaks to King Saul after Saul kept the animals of the Amalikites to do sacrifice instead of killing them all:
I will now totally trash libertarianism and anarchism for any King James Only Bible believer--
Sit down please-- this will be very hard on your massive rebel ego--
The translation of the King James Bible was commissioned, and directed personally, by King James I of England. This Bible was the bedrock of all missionary activity for 350 years. It was the Bible of the Pilgrims who came to America, and it remains the best selling Bible in the world.
Now, tell me, dear diddle head rebel, what would have happened if Dr. Reynolds and Sir Lancelot Andrews, and all the other translators, would have said, "No mere king is going to sit in authority over me while I translate the Bible."?
Now, if you did not watch the whole video above, the following will not make much sense.
But, the Bible believer, after casting aside the rebellion of Anarchy and Libertarianism, will come to a very troubling question:
How do I submit to Caesar but avoid being mentally changed and warped by Caesar's propaganda and media lies? Answer:
Render to Caesar what is Caesar's. But, in your mind and actions, think like Christ and act like Christ. If in the course of life, you are forced to choose between Caesar and Christ, you must think and act as Christ would and suffer the consequences for Christ's sake.
There is no similarity between thinking like Christ and Anarchy !! They are mutually exclusive because thinking like Christ means 100% submission to authority-- Christ's authority.
Aside from paying taxes, AND if you do not live in a Muslim nation, there are very few times that Caesar really is a threat. It is the society at large that is the real threat. Social customs, amusements, your extended family, and the life style of society are the forces which are most deadly.
See if you can liberate yourself from THAT by having the mind of Christ.
Now, if you still believe you must be a Libertarian or an Anarchist, you are a damned hypocrite if you ever stop for a stop sign again.
A letter from a reader
I read an interesting article this week in �The Berean Call� newsletter. (I ordered a book through Amazon & then got it from them so now I�m on another mail list! (http://www.thebereancall.org/ )
Anyway - John Newton was born in London, England, July 1725, and died there December 1807. You�ll remember him as the once slave ship captain who later wrote �Amazing Grace� among LOTS of other stuff.... but I digress.
These days there are many voices calling us to one side or the other of the political spectrum. . . . . . I thought you also would find this man�s input into the calls of anarchy and sedition of his day so much more like our own; Ecclesiastes 1 states �The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. 10. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.�
So, here is a letter from John Newton to a friend:
Allow me to say, that it excites both my wonder and concern, that a Christian minister such as yourself, should think it worth his while to attempt political reforms. When I look around upon the present state of the nation, such an attempt appears to me, to be no less vain and foolish, than it would be to paint the cabin--while the ship is sinking! Or to decorate the parlor--while the house is on fire!
When our Lord Jesus was upon earth, He refused to get involved in disputes or politics, "Friend, who appointed Me a judge or arbitrator over you?" Luke 12:14. "My kingdom is not of this world! If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight!" John 18:36. God's children belong to a kingdom which is not of this world; they are strangers and pilgrims upon earth, and a part of their Scriptural character is, that they are the "quiet in the land." Psalm 35:20.
Satan has many contrivances to amuse people, and to divert their thoughts from their real danger!
My dear sir, my prayer to God for you is--that He may induce you to employ the talents He has given you, in pointing out sin as the great cause and source of every existing evil; and to engage those who love and fear Him, (instead of wasting time in political speculations, for which very few of them are competent,) to sigh and cry for our abounding abominations, and to stand in the breach, by prayer, that God's wrath may yet be averted, and our national mercies prolonged! This, I think, is true patriotism--the best way in which people in private life may serve their country.
I consider the ungodly as saws and hammers in the hand of the Lord. So far as they are His instruments, they will succeed--but not an inch further! Their wrath shall praise Him, and be subservient to His designs!
If our lot is so cast that we can exercise our ministry free from stripes, fines, imprisonments, and death--it is more than the gospel has promised to us! If Christians were quiet when under the cruel governments of Nero and other wicked persecutors, when they were hunted down like wild beasts--then we ought to be not only quiet but very thankful now! It was then accounted an honor to suffer for Christ and the 'offence of the cross'!
Those are to be greatly pitied, who boast of their 'liberty'--and yet they do not consider that they are in the most deplorable bondage as the slaves of sin and Satan, under the curse of God's law and His eternal wrath! Oh! for a voice to reach their hearts, that they may know their true and dreadful state--and seek deliverance from their horrific thraldom! May you and I labor to direct them to the one thing, which is absolutely needful, and abundantly sufficient.
If I had the wisdom or influence to soothe the angry passions of mankind--I would gladly employ them! But I am a stranger and a pilgrim here in this world. My charter, my rights and my treasures, are all in heaven--and there my heart ought to be. In a very short time, I may be removed (and perhaps suddenly) into the unseen and eternal world--where all that now causes so much bustle upon earth--will be of no more importance to me--than the events which took place among the antediluvians!
In the hour, when death shall open the door into eternity--many things which now assume an 'air of importance', will be found as light and unsubstantial as a child's dream!
How crucial then, is it for me--to be found watching, with my lamp burning, diligently engaged in my proper calling! For the Lord has not called me to set governments right--but to preach the gospel, to proclaim the glory of His name, and to endeavor to win souls! "Let the dead bury their own dead--but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God!" Luke 9:60. Happy is that servant, whom his Master finds so doing, when He returns!
As you have forced me to respond--both duty and love have obliged me to be faithful and free in giving you my thoughts.
I recommend you to the care and blessing of the great Shepherd and Savior; and remain for His sake, your affectionate friend and brother,
This is Greece-- How do you think it would look in Chicago?
