Sovereignty and Dominion

The two key issues facing both the world and the church are Sovereignty and Dominion:  who rules and who has legitimate ownership of all things. Every aspect of life must come to terms with these questions. None can claim neutrality when faced with this challenge. Either man is the supreme lawgiver, judge and king, or God is. Either man owns all things, thus giving him ownership legitimacy over the created order, or God owns all things. Both cannot be true. Neither can these questions be ignored.
As a result of the Fall, man has deluded himself into thinking that he is like God. (cf. Gen 3:5) Today’s man has gone further into the abyss of self delusion by believing that he is God, and thus has total sovereign claim over the earth.  For man to believe that he is God, or god-like, is to say that he is sovereign and his sovereignty entitles him to legitimate ownership of all things.  While man generally desires lordship over nature, the beasts of the field, and other men, he ultimately desires lordship over God.
Ps 2:2-3, 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.
Man, by nature, does not desire Biblical Dominion. He desires humanistic domination.  Biblical dominion would bring man under God and under His law. Humanistic domination legitimizes man’s revolt against God and allows man to be his own lawgiver.
In order to clarify the difference between Biblical Dominion and humanistic domination, R.J. Rushdoony states,

“God’s Law-Word gives man the way to dominion, and dominion is not domination. Domination is the exercise of lawless power over others. Dominion is the exercise of godly power in our God-given sphere. The rejection of God’s sovereignty leads to domination; that affirmation of God’s sovereignty and His law is the foundation of dominion. It is also the means to power under God… A humanistic power can only be truly overthrown by God’s power, and men cannot escape dominion and tyranny apart from a return to the Triune God and their total calling and dominion mandate under Him.”

So when unconverted men are catapulted into positions of civil power, they will seek to rule apart from God’s Law; whenever that happens, domination results. Depending upon the degree of the rebellion, so too with be the degree of tyranny and humanistic domination. One must remember that any rejection of God’s law opens the portals to further rejection, which moves a nation from ‘soft tyranny’ to abject dictatorship-domination.

Theologian and author Marin Selbrede rightly affirms,
“A consistent full-orbed Christianity that takes the Crown rights of the King seriously poses a threat to the self-proclaimed sovereign power state, and this threat is clearly understood by the state. It has accumulated power and has no intention of voluntarily relinquishing; it would take a power greater than itself to pry its fingers off of its claims to ultimacy.”
That reckoning power is the power of Christ, His Law, and His Gospel. It is this comprehensive claim which must be advanced in the world by His Elect Body, the Church, pressing  forward the legitimacy of His Dominion Sovereignty.

Goal: Remove the unlawful claim of statist sovereignty by establishing the Lawful Sovereignty of Christ over every are of life.
Strategy: Establish Christian-based institutions to replace the statist institutions.


a. Establish Christian Schools (or at least encourage others) for every level of education and which do not answer to the state. (These can be established under the U.S. religious exemption clause.)
b. Establish Ecclesiastic courts to adjudicate disputes. Branch out into the community once the news gets out of the justice and equity meted out at these proceedings.
c. Establish a local Christian banking system using honest money. (Not an easy thing but it can be done.)
d. Establish a food and clothing bank. Open it to the public. Use it as a tool to share the Word of God. Keep a list of those that use the service. Have the elders contact them. Make pastoral visits. Bring Christ to them. Build relationships.
e. Establish Christ-centered homes for unwed mothers, battered women, and the homeless. (Use the homes of church members on a volunteer basis to get started.)
f. Establish Christian training centers for the un-skilled. Teach them new skills that can be used for future employment or advancement.
g. Establish a Christian unemployment center to help people find work. Obtain a list of all the employers in the area and meet with them. Introduce the project to them. Keep in touch with them on a regular basis. Take a genuine interest in their business. Keep the channels open.
h. Establish a Christian training center to assist families to get out of debt, and to become faithful Biblical stewards of their finances.
i. Establish tutorial services for school-aged children. Offer these at a nominal fee or for free to get started.
j. Establish Home Education support centers. Encourage home schooling. Help moms find curriculum and have a team of moms standing by to assist.
k. Establish Christian Home Schooling co-ops. Wean the parents from the government schools.

The goal is to replace the state’s domination institutions with Christo-centric dominion-based institutions.

Economic Chaos, Fear and Uncertainty: An Opportunity for Christian Reconstruction

"Paper money has had the effect, in your state, that it will ever have, to ruin commerce, oppress the honest, and open the door to every species of fraud and injustice."GEORGE WASHINGTON, in letter to J. Bowen, Rhode Island, Jan. 9, 1787
On February 22nd, President’s Day, World Net Daily released an email stating the following:
“After almost a century of inflation, today's dollar has less than 2 cents of the purchasing power that it had in 1913 when the Federal Reserve Board was founded.
The dollar in 1913 was backed by gold, as the Founders, including Washington, specified, in keeping with the Good Book's standard for money. 

But that effectively changed in 1933 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt made ownership of gold bullion illegal in the U.S., and in 1971 when President Richard Nixon severed the last anchor of dollar convertibility into gold for foreign banks. 

No longer constrained from printing all the easy money they wanted after 1971, the politicians started putting “In God We Trust” on paper dollars at about the same time they removed our currency's golden handcuffs that prohibited inflating the dollar. Now the world is rapidly losing faith in our anchorless “faith-based,” debased currency, and with good reason. 

In the past two years our politicians have conjured $4 Trillion out of thin air. Fed Chair Ben Bernanke's Quantitative Easing 2 (QE2) is adding another $600 Billion—double the total number of physical paper dollars now circulating in the United States. The Congressional Budget Office days ago projected that 2011 will enlarge the deficit by another $1.48 Trillion. 

And every one of these new paper fiat dollars steals value from the dollars you earn and save. Food cost inflation is already skyrocketing overseas, causing the riots that toppled a government in Tunisia and setting in motion falling dominos in Egypt and the Persian Gulf oil sheikdoms. Food prices will soon soar here, too. 

Our politicians printing trillions of dollars is a major factor in global inflation and instability. Because economic strength and military might were the two legs on which America once stood tall, the fast-approaching crash of the dollar will end our prosperity at home and create a power vacuum that fanatics can fill in other countries such as nuclear-armed Pakistan.”


Since 1980 I have been interested in both the American and global financial markets. Initially it was only out of pure curiosity since I hadn’t any money to invest, being just two years out of college and looking to establish a career. At that time the country was in a recession, there was a high level of unemployment, the dollar was devalued, the inflation rate was rising, and gold was being sold above $850 per ounce. There was also much talk about a two-tier currency, which we now have today—another sign of rapid inflation. Forty years later we are not any better off. The fact is, we are much worse off.

America’s paper money is worthless in itself. It is backed only by the government’s promise to honor it, that is, until it can no longer keep that promise. It is also only beneficial as a medium of exchange as long as citizens are willing to take it as valued currency. Once the people decide that the paper is worthless, the dollar becomes extinct—almost overnight.

Since the U.S. is no longer on a bi-metallic standard of gold and silver, the paper dollar’s days are numbered—and those numbers are dwindling.


Taking into account the current inflation rate, today’s gold price of $1300+ is equivalent to the 1980 price of gold of approximately $400 per ounce. If gold follows the same pattern as it did in the 1980s, today’s gold should double at its peak to $3000 to $5000 per ounce. When that happens, (and I do not say if, but at this present rate I believe I must say when), the value of the dollar will have, for all intents and purposes, collapsed. We may then see the introduction of a North American currency, the Bancor (or whatever name they finally decide to call it. It makes no difference since it is all the same scam).

The Bancor currency, like the Euro, may be the government’s silver bullet to quell the panic that will erupt when the dollar finally fails. But here is the rub: the Bancor is not the people’s silver bullet—rather it is the  government’s. This North American currency will most likely be valued higher than the devalued dollar, making it necessary to purchase Bancor notes with more dollars than a one to one ratio. At the end of the day, not only is the paper American currency devalued by inflation, but it is then further devalued by the unbalanced ratio causing a downward spiraling effect for many families into poverty.

The economic collapse of the American economic system might be the most dramatic and single most important event in the modern history of this nation.


When this all transpires, it will not be the end of the world. It will be the end of an era, but not the world. Jesus is not coming back with His bankbook to bail us out. These events are providentially orchestrated for both our chastisement and our learning. They are also brought about for our opportunity. This is an opportunity to lead with concrete Biblical solutions for our decrepit economic and political system. It is the time when the Sons of God will be manifested.


First: God’s people must be prepared for whatever might come to pass. Families must prepare for what may happen. They must be educated and knowledgeable as to how to insulate themselves in these troubled times.  

Second: Churches must realize that they will be called to minister to the community when tough times arise. They too need to be prepared for the role of leadership and mercy to the community lest they create another vacuum for the government to take control.

Thirdly: Our civil magistrates must be made aware of the situation. They must be called to fiscal responsibility, which is based upon Biblical Ethics. God’s people must lead the way.


Last year I prepared six economic reports in order to train God’s people in tactics and logistics. The information is comprehensive and useful. It will walk you through a process so you can plan for any economic downturn. I did not, however, give the reports freely. I required a fee. That in itself was part of the training. You must offer your knowledge and skill for payment. Others will do likewise. This is the first step in entrepreneurship and financial stability.

I am offering these reports again. If you are interested, you can email me at and I will tell you how to obtain these six reports of 10 pages each, filled with practical advice, links and Biblical principles that will change the way you think about money and stewardship.

The six reports will be given to all interested parties for a donation of $14.95, the price of three cappuccinos. The proceeds will go to our Non- Profit Organization, The Institute for Theonomic Reformation, in support of The New Geneva Christian Leadership Academy.


The economic system of the United States, in confederacy with the global market place, cannot sustain itself in rebellion against Biblical principles forever. There must be a breaking point. There must be a time when God says, “Enough!” (cf. Proverbs 1:24-32)

And yet, God has promised that He will not do anything unless He first declares it to His people. We have been warned. Let’s think seriously about what we must do.

“Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7

Unrest, Rebellion and The Law of God

The Intelligence Organization of STRATFOR recently posted this statement in regard to the unrest in Libya:

"There has now been some spark of unrest in places as far afield as Cote d’Ivoire and Iran. For the most part, these protests are limited in size and scope, and not all of them are connected. But are some? Are there protests unified by common themes? Are there common forces at work behind the scenes in some cases?"

Today FOX New reported that "witnesses say protesters and security forces are battling for control of central Tripoli, with snipers opening fire on crowds and Qaddafi supporters speeding through in cars, shooting and running over protesters."

Even in our own U.S. we see the beginnings of civil unrest over Labor Union benefits and pensions. The WEEK Reported:

"A clash between Democratic protesters and Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin, over the proposed gutting of collective-bargaining rights for public-employee unions, has sparked a national debate. The protests in Madison are already being replicated in cities across the Rust Belt, with national leaders throwing their weight behind each of the causes."

We also see similar disputes now in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa and New Hampshire.

While the issues abroad seem to be distinct from the issues here, STRATFOR is correct in that they all share in one common denominator, a common theme - frustration. The people are frustrated. They are frustrated over the particular situation that they face and have become angered to the point of aggressive action.

Abroad, the people seem to be frustrated over government oppression, as in the case of Egypt, Iran, Bahrain, and Libya. In the case at home, people are actually fearful that they will be deprived of their retirement pensions and union benefits, all of which will be unsustainable at this present rate of inflation and government debt. Whether they like it or not there will eventually be no money for any entitlement program, union or otherwise.

Theologically, however, we can be assured that there is ONE common force behind these providential happenings - God Holy will and orchestration of all things.

Amos tells us, "Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil [lit. calamity] in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?"

Daniel tells us that God "changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings:"

To look beyond the physical occurrences of the world to the metaphysical, is to see it from God's vantage point. This is wisdom.This is true intel.

God is shaking the nations. The difference in our day is that He is shaking them collectively. This is something we have not seen in our generation, or in past generations. We face a global restructuring which if not restructured God-ward will mean years of tribulation for all of us.

But let me hasten to say that this does not in any way signal the 'end of the world' as some might think, no matter what the Aztecs predicted. They were never privy to God's Revelation. God has clearly stated that the end will only come when Christ, through His Body, the True Church, subdues all His enemies on earth, in time and history.

1Co 15:24-25 "Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet."

The end of the world will only be signaled by the total Advancement of Christ's Righteousness according to God's Law. The end will come only after every knee bows to the Supremacy of the Christ and when all kings either Kiss the Son or are destroyed by Him. Scripture concludes that the knowledge of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea just before the end of time. We are no where near that yet.

These global developments should rather be a signal to the saints to prepare themselves - i.e. arming themselves with the Law-Word of God - in order to give Biblical answers to the many problems facing the world. At this historic juncture Christendom is ill-prepared for the very task that she is called to accomplish. Generally speaking Christians have not led the culture but rather have been led by the culture. They have rejected the Law of God and the application of it to the real world, and thus have reaped the whirl-wind of global unrest, violence, anger, frustration and uncertainty. This must change. Christendom must provide Biblical answer to real problems.

So what are the Saints to do?

Firstly: Understand that the only way for Peace is through Covenant obedience to the Word of God. This means that the moral and judicial Law of God must be implemented to our modern world properly, and not as some would claim "tyrannically" (as if the implementation of God's Holy, Just and Equitable Law is tyrannical).

I remember at a conference that I attended in 2001 one of the speakers was from a U.N. watch-dog group. After his speech he paused and said very soberly, and entirely unscripted, "Aside from everything I have said, I believe that the only way for world peace is through Jesus Christ." He had it right.

Secondly: Christians need to look beyond what is happening and ask "Why" is it happening?

Third: Christians then need to seek similar situations in Scripture and use them as case-studies to see if any light is shed for solutions through these Scriptural case-studies and examples.

Finally: Any solution to any problem that is not explicitly Biblical can never solve the problem. At best, it may alleviate it for a season but it can never solve it long term. Most times, when solutions are presented apart from Scriptural sanction, the result is further oppression and unrest a la the French Revolution. The situation simply goes from the frying pan headlong into the fire of God's Judgment and the end is worse than the begining.

The implementation of the standard of the

Justice, Equity and Righteousness of God's Law is the only hope for our unsettled world.

Politics, Tyrants and the Christian Statesman

In his superb analysis of democracy, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Distinguished Fellow at the Mises Institute observes that "prime ministers and presidents are selected for their proven efficiency as morally uninhibited demagogues. Thus, democracy virtually assures that only bad and dangerous men will ever rise to the top of government." Those who thirst for political office appear to be eager to break the moral code that most of us are willing to follow. It seems that the greater the power of the political office that a candidate is seeking, the more likely it is that that individual has no sense of right and wrong.

This is especially true in our day where either good or God- fearing men refuse to jump headlong into the cesspool of politics, fearing they too will be corrupted, or they adopt a dualistic approach and claim that government is outside of God’s interest, exonerating them of any cultural and political responsibility.

What is missed behind such an anomaly is the overall reason for America’s political demise. In other words, why is this happening?

Rev. Joseph Morecraft sets forth the reason clearly.

“When God begins to judge a nation for its revolt against Him, He removes effective leaders and replaces them with irresponsible and reckless ones who have no appreciation of the past and no commitment to the future under God…[However] when God begins to lift that judgment and begins to receive and rebuild a nation in the midst of repentance, He restores Christian leadership at all levels of church and state in answer to the earnest prayers of His faithful people.”

This nation has been plunged into the abyss of immorality and tyranny as a result of the church’s and the nation’s failure to be culturally relevant God-ward.

Morecraft comments:

“When men with Godly abilities refuse to take upon themselves the yoke of political authority for the benefit of their friends family and fellow patriots, then ungodly, misdirected, reckless, unproductive, and oppressive leaders will rush to the fountains of power.”

Men of God need to confederate together to take back what has been given them by Divine appointment, i.e. their nation for God’s Glory. While this is the appointed task for every true saint it is not easily attained. It is not, however, impossible. It will take commitment, consistency, hard work and patience. Many are not willing to give that much for the Crown rights of Christ. But then again, they may only be 'Christians' in name only.

Consider the situation.

There are two problems facing the nation. The first is the overall political structure, and that the power behind it is stacked against any Godly men rising to a position of influence. Yet this first situation has no intrinsic power of itself, rather it is given its standing and power by the second. The second problem, that which empowers the first, centers on the citizenry. Some of the people who vote for these power hungry mongrels are wickedly immoral themselves. Others are hopelessly covetous seeking government entitlements regardless of whom the government steals from through taxation and plunder. Still others are simply ignorant of the Biblical Law-Standard of right and wrong and thus are easily deceived.

The immediate answer to these problems is not running for political office, but rather setting the stage in order to run for political office. This must be done through a re-education program of the citizenry in the Biblical Law-Principles of government and freedom. If the general population is made aware of the benefits of a good and Godly government only then will they elect good and Godly officials to the seat of power. The acceptance of God’s Law is contingent upon God’s intervening grace to be sure. But when God’s people obey the precepts of the Commission Mandate; God is sure to bless their efforts.

GOAL: Educate the Populace – Educate the Politicians

STRATEGY: Carefully study God’s Word, formulating written arguments against political, economic and cultural corruption providing concrete solutions to each issue ready for publication and assimilation.

LOGISTICS: 1. Build a Team of Committed Saints.

2. Identify their talents.

3. A. Some will great researchers. Give them the charge of researching the current issues of the day, choosing those that need to be addressed locally, state-wide or nationally.
B. Others will be able to research God’s Word and the various Christian documents of history to bolster the argument and provide solutions.
C. Others will be able to put it all down in clearly written form. You will need people who can write clearly and have proper grammar. Use someone who has grammatical skills to edit before any publishing.

4. Monitor the politicians when in session or in local meetings. Go to the meetings. Be sure the local Newspaper accurately records what really happened as many papers are bias. Many localities use committees appointed by the magistrates for zoning, building et al. These need to be monitored as well.

5. Get to know the politicians. Make yourself visible. Those in your team that are good communicators and have a good public report ought to be ‘out and about’ the people and the politicians. Let them know someone is concerned. But moreover let them know someone is watching. Subtle intimidation can be very effective.

6. Don’t be afraid to expose corruption. While most politicians are unethical, in our godless age being unethical is not a crime. It is, however, a sign of potential corruption. If corruption can be substantiated do not be afraid to involve the local FBI. They are God’s ministers for good. Force them to adhere to their calling by prosecuting the evil.

7. Keep governing officials honest by requesting sensitive financial documents using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).  If they know someone is checking on their activities, they may fear exposure enough to act blamelessly.

Biblical Eschatology : Accuracy is Essential

"Eschatology is inseparable from purpose, purpose in history. The goal of the enemy is the Kingdom of Man. The goal of Christ's people must be the Kingdom of God, ruled by God's law-word. Eschatology is not only about ends, but also means to the given goal. This is why Theonomy, God's law and its rule, is inseparable from God's Kingdom." ~ R.J. Rushdoony ‘Journal of Christian Reconstruction’, Vol. XV, 1998 p. 11

Eschatology coupled with the application of God's Law is the lynch-pin for Christian victory. Without a postmillennial view of history, which ensures a comprehensive victory by the Sovereign Christ, the church will languish in fear, doubt and despondency.

The Apostle makes a critical end-time prediction of how it is going to pan out. In speaking of the end of time, he states,

1Co 15:24-25 "Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet."

Note: The end will come ONLY after Christ has put down ALL RULE and ALL AUTHORITY and ALL POWER.

He can do this since at His resurrection, all Power was given to Him in heaven AND IN THE EARTH!

The Kingdom of His Dominion had arrived as a result of His resurrection, and at Pentecost the result of that victory came with visible power as the Holy Spirit was poured out.

Jesus had told the apostles that He would not eat or drink with them until He did so a-new in the Kingdom. After His resurrection He does just that; He eats and drinks with them, signifying the fact that His Conquering Kingdom had come and He was seated as King in Heaven reigning over the earth.

Before His resurrection He had told His people that the Kingdom was at hand. At His resurrection it had come. Fifty days later it was evident to all flesh.

This event was foretold by both David and Daniel:

Psalm 72:8 "He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth."

Daniel 7:14 "And there was given Him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed."

The New Testament writer to the Hebrews reiterates Christ's position of absolute Sovereignty and the totality of His victory.

Hebrews 2:8 "Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him..."

Then he explains why we do not see the kingdom's manifestation during the dark days of history.

"...But now we see not yet all things put under him."

The work of Christ's victory will not always be evident on earth. Nor are we promised that in every age there will be a positive progression of Christ's Kingdom, especially in light of the Church's apostasy. What we can expect during ecclesiastic rebellion is God's chastisement and great darkness. Christ is hidden in those times. (cf Prov 28:12)Nevertheless the Kingdom is advancing. The evidence of that advancement will only be manifested when the church returns to the Law's application for every area of life.

Here is what we are promised in every time, be it light or dark.

Heb 2:9 "But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man."

We are promised that by faith we see the Heavenly reality of eminent victory beyond the senses. By faith we know that victory on earth is at hand. It may not be in our lifetime. But it will come during human life-time. Christ does not need to come again to establish His Kingdom and reign, He already has.

The problem with the modern, postmodern and secularized-Christian church is that they are unwilling to look beyond themselves to the heritage of many future generations beyond their own.

Postmillennial Eschatology is a labor of faith knowing that what Christ has accomplished is real, and what He has promised will come to pass until He subdues all kingdoms. It is at that time that the knowledge of His Universal and Comprehensive Lordship will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea as Isaiah predicted thousands of years ago.

Sins of Blasphemy

The sin against the first commandment, Thou shalt have no other god's before the true God, banishes the Name of Jehovah by means of taking to one's self other gods and their idolatrous names.

The sin against the second commandment obscures and disfigures His Name by making graven images.

The sin against the third commandment, Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord in vain, abuses the Holy Name of God.

All abuses of God's Name is a repudiation of His authority, and that repudiation must be met with Holy retribution.

Blasphemy is a terrible sin. But it is also a crime. It is a crime against the Majesty of God and an offense against His Crown Rights. Although American society refuses to view it as a crime it is exactly that nevertheless, and it warrants criminal sanctions according to the Scriptures.

Blasphemy, of any kind, against the Throne of Heaven, is forbidden. Whether it is a blasphemous cursing or a blasphemous action it is both a sin, and a crime.

Blasphemy is a rebellious act. It is an open declaration of war against God. It challenges and incites God to action.

Whenever a society tolerates such acts of lawlessness against the True God, God is forced to bring His wrath upon a culture, especially the civil magistrates who failed to uphold and protect God's honor.

All acts of Blasphemy are viewed as revolution against God's legitimate authority.

Historically, all acts of blasphemy were dealt with by the church as well as the civil magistrate, even to the extent of blasphemy against God's Holy Day. Consider the Connecticut Law of 1656 concerning the Lord's Day.

Connecticut Law, 1656

“Whosoever shall profane the Lord’s day, or any part of it, either by sinful servile work, or by unlawful sport, recreation, or otherwise, whether willfully or in a careless neglect, shall be duly punished by fine, imprisonment, or corporally, according to the nature, and measure of the sin, and offence.

But if the court upon examination, by clear and satisfying evidence finds that the sin was proudly, presumptuously, an with a high hand committed against the known command and authority of the blessed God, such a person therein despising and reproaching the Lord, shall be put to death that all others may fear and shun such provoking rebellious courses.”

While many may think this law too harsh, it shows the severity of Blasphemy and Sabbath breaking. The observance of God's Laws kept the social order, suppressed immorality, kept the family intact, the economy healthy, and God's Blessings were upon the nation. We stand upon the blessings of God as a result of the fidelity of those Americans that have gone before us.

Today however, while mainline Christianity tolerates society's open blasphemy against Her Lord, the Muslim, humanists, and outright pagans remain devoted and intolerant against any blasphemy against their gods, who is in fact, not God.

GOAL: Get the Christian church, its pastors and leaders, and the local civil rulers to re-consider their devotion to the Honor of God by no longer tolerating open rebellion and blasphemy against His holy and legitimate authority. .

STRATEGY: Educate the community. Pressure them to pressure the local authorities. Educate the Magistrate. Challenge them by showing how other religions are jealous of their gods - why are not we as passionate? Stir the people. Warn the magistrate. Explain to them that God's blessing will be upon them for their obedience. Also mention that the curse of God rests upon them for rebellion. Do it tactfully - but do it sternly.

"America is an oligarchy of lawyers and the businessmen who hire them.
In no other nation do five lawyers determine what is lawful and what is not. This supreme authority of five people is both a symbol and the legal foundation of the political system that rules 310 million Americans. Yet we are so used to it that we give it no thought. We assume that this is normative: 'the way things are  supposed to be.'
Yet it is neither normative nor Constitutional. It is merely traditional." Dr. Gary North

The Puritan George Gillespie Declares to the Civil Magistrate his Duty

"I know some divines hold that the Judaical laws of Moses, so far as concerneth the punishments of sins against the moral law, idolatry, blasphemy Sabbath-breaking, adultery, theft, etc., ought to be a rule to the Christian magistrate; and for my part, I wish more respect were had to it, and that it were more consulted with...

...It is one thing to govern the commonwealth, and to make political and civil laws; another thing to interpret the Word of God, and out of it to show the magistrate his duty, to wit, how he ought to govern the commonwealth, and in what manner he ought to use the sword. The former is proper and peculiar to the magistrate (neither doth the ministry intermeddle or entangle itself into such businesses0, but the latter is contained within the office of the ministers...

...For to that end also is the Holy Scripture profitable, to show which is the best manner of governing a commonwealth, and that the magistrate, as being God's minister, may be this guiding star be so directed, as that he may execute the parts of his office according to the will of God, and may perfectly be instructed in every good work..."

Gillespie believed the civil magistrate bound to the Law of God in civil and penal matters. His duty was to show obedience to the judicial laws of Moses.

GOAL: Our magistrates must do likewise!

STRATEGY: The Christian community is mandated to show them the way.

TACTIC: Educate the community. Educate the Magistrate. Stir the people. Blog, email, Face Book, Editorials, newspapers , community meetings, study groups and door to door community activism.

PREMISE: "A shift of perspective can transform a people from being passive and confused  to motivated and creative."
