"At the Rappahannock Regional Jail in Stafford, Va., jail officials allegedly cut out Bible references from a letter a woman wrote to her son who is an inmate in the jail. On at least one occasion, all that was left of her three-page letter was the salutation, the first paragraph, and the words "Love, Mom." "
I tell you, how much more blatant can it be in this country? How long will we stand for this nonsense? Have we lost all of the sense given us? I should ask what is the government so afraid of, words in a book, or is it that the words are truth? I say, the truth shall set you free, this is the great fear. We are made slaves by our own accord, made to bare great burdens from lack of knowledge. How long will you be a slave to this oppression?
This mother was giving her son the best she had to give. But they would put mother against son, and fater against son, brother against brother, ect. We know the verse, but refuse to hear. What is so dangerous about the bible?
We know it is truth, and so do they. The Psalmist David recorded this in 94 of the book of Psalms, I beseech you to stand with me in this truth.
" 1: O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
2: Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3: LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
4: How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
5: They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.
6: They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
7: Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
8: Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
9: He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
10: He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
11: The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
12: Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;
13: That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
14: For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
15: But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
16: Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
17: Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
18: When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.
19: In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
20: Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
21: They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
22: But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
23: And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off. "
So what shall we say then? I say its time to claim our victory over this oppression and stand on truth. Can you not see the overwhelming truth of the biblical account of the future, and the victory that is ours, or I should I say his?
If we do not come together in masses now we will bare the unthinkable.
Chuck Baldwin had this to say about the excuse of romans 13 to lay down arms.
" Do our Christian friends who use these verses to teach that we should not
oppose America's political leaders really believe that civil magistrates
have unlimited authority to do anything they want without opposition? I
doubt whether they truly believe that.
For example, what if our President decided to resurrect the old monarchal
custom of Jus Primae Noctis (Law of First Night)? That was the old medieval
custom when the king claimed the right to sleep with a subject's bride on
the first night of their marriage. Would our sincere Christian brethren
sheepishly say, "Romans Chapter 13 says we must submit to the government"? I
think not. And would any of us respect any man who would submit to such a
He goes on to say this about our history.
"Did Moses violate God's principle of submission to authority when he killed
the Egyptian taskmaster in defense of his fellow Hebrew? Did Elijah violate
God's principle of submission to authority when he openly challenged Ahab
and Jezebel? Did David violate God's principle of submission to authority
when he refused to surrender to Saul's troops? Did Daniel violate God's
principle of submission to authority when he disobeyed the king's command to
not pray audibly to God? Did the three Hebrew children violate God's
principle of submission to authority when they refused to bow to the image
of the state? Did John the Baptist violate God's principle of submission to
authority when he publicly scolded King Herod for his infidelity? Did Simon
Peter and the other Apostles violate God's principle of submission to
authority when they refused to stop preaching on the streets of Jerusalem?
Did Paul violate God's principle of submission to authority when he refused
to obey those authorities who demanded that he abandon his missionary work?
In fact, Paul spent almost as much time in jail as he did out of jail."
There is no excuse for the injustis we allow to be perpertraited on our freedom.
STAND UP NOW!
