ONE ANSWER FOR FERGUSON

There is one answer to adequately address the chaos demonstrated in Ferguson Missouri.

First of all, let’s debunk some myths that are being perpetuated by agenda driven opportunists: “Justice” is not one race scoring points over another. It is about protecting the innocent, and punishing the guilty individuals.

Violence, destruction of property and random chaos is evil-driven and part of sinful human nature unchanged over ages by so-called “social evolution.”

What we see in Ferguson is nothing more than human nature unrestrained by internal law, a sense of right and wrong that is taught by the Christian religion, and that has until recent times been the common moral standard of our nation. In short, the absence of Christian order leaves a void that is quickly filled by demonic chaos. Robert Winthrop, former Speaker of the House, taught us that,

All societies of men must be governed in some way or other. The less they may have of stringent State Government, the more they must have of individual self-government. The less they rely on public law or physical force, the more they must rely on private moral restraint. Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by a power within them, or by a power without them; either by the Word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet.”

To the extent that the people will not be restrained by an internal law they must be restrained by “the bayonet,” the police, a government force. The logical end of which is a police state, and the loss of liberty. That’s why John Adams taught us that our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. So the only answer to address the Ferguson issue is to bring us back to the basic American mindset, that we are “One Nation Under God.” Abraham Lincoln reminded us that a house divided will not stand. Advocating for a particular group at the expense of our American identity is destructive, unpatriotic and will cause us to lose that which has made us exceptional among nations—American unity.

So it’s up to the clergy in Ferguson, and in the nation to pray for unity beginning in the Church, then preach that we are “One Nation Under God.” We must preach and teach righteousness, as Frederick Douglas, an African-American 19th century abolitionist taught us, quoting from Proverbs 14:34, that “righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people.” He said his single quest was to infuse this idea among the people, and so we must continue that quest.

True justice will only become reality when we, the people appeal to the Supreme Judge of the Universe as One Nation Under God.”

Why President’s Obama’s Decision on Immigration is Totally Logical

The political pundits seem to be in a quandary over President’s Obama decision to suspend deportations of illegal immigrants when he previously repeated over and over why he couldn’t legally do so. It’s simple when one understands the lens through which he sees his authority. He is a subscriber to the liberal view of situational ethics and a “Living Constitution.” In that view the Constitution changes with the conditions of the times. This view was clearly articulated by Supreme Court Justice of the early 2oth century Charles Evans Hughes who said “We are under a Constitution, but the Constitution is what the judges say it is.” In other words, the ultimate authority to which all other authorities must be subordinate is the authority of the person in power at the time of the decision. So when Obama said it was illegal for him to do so, that was true by the authority of his interpretation, but now when he says it is legal, by that same authority it becomes legal. Another word for this governing philosophy is “totalitarianism.” The ultimate authority is not the text of a law or the Constitution, but the judgment of the person in authority. It’s clear that if this establishes a new precedent you can kiss liberty goodbye—God forbid it!

Supremes Abdicate

Today the U.S. Supreme Court abdicated its responsibility to resolve conflicts between the states concerning the issue of the redefinition of marriage.

In a spiritual sense this represents another leap toward Sodom.  If we continue disregarding the [i]eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” we will continue to see the undoing of the greatest nation the world has ever seen. As surely as we have enjoyed His favor resulting in peace and prosperity, we will experience more, violence, war and economic decline as consequences of disregarding our allegiance to the God of our forefathers. And yes, I’m speaking of judgment on America, because of our national sin. As Founding Father George Mason admonished,

[ii]As nations cannot be rewarded or punished in the next world, they must be in this. By an inevitable chain of causes and effects, Providence punishes national sins by national calamities.”

In a political and legal sense, the only hope for America is to begin work toward a Federal Marriage Amendment to our Constitution defining  the institution of marriage, once-and-for-all,  as the union of one man and one woman unrelated by blood.

On November 4th every Christian eligible to vote must vote for godly leadership at every level of government from dog catcher on up. We must begin a turn-around back to common sense American values or our grandchildren will curse us for handing over to them a country cursed by God, instead of the one handed to us that was blessed by God.

BEGIN THE TURN-AROUND

On November 4th we must begin a national turn-around away from this failed experiment in humanistic socialism which is clearly, and systematically destroying the blessings of liberty first planted in American soil by our founders who were committed to becoming “One Nation Under God.” Every person eligible to vote must be registered, and must vote for the man or woman who best reflects the ideology that will insure the preservation of ordered liberty. Our foundational institutions are at stake, like the right to life, authentic marriage and religious liberties, not to speak of a free market system that has produced the most prosperous nation in world history. British statesman Edmund Burke told us, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” We dare not be counted among those who do nothing, or our grandchildren will rise up to curse us for allowing evil to triumph. “We, the people” are responsible for the character of our government. So, on November 4th we must begin the turn toward common-sense “American” values at every level of New York government from Dog Catcher to Governor, and prepare to do the same at a national level in 2016.
