The Way Things Ought To Be

July 5, 2016

In yesterday’s article, I demonstrated that America’s system of government has no basis in logic. Everyone cooperates because they believe in it by blind faith, or because they’re coerced. America’s system of government is based on power religion–might makes right.

Christianity is the opposite of man’s law and religion. God is perfectly righteous and just, and His law is a reflection of His character. His law is perfectly righteous and just. Christianity isn’t a power religion but an ethical/covenantal religion.13394163_971908306241409_2427123579007339431_n

American government is based on the blind leap of faith that the law applies because the law says it applies. As long as they can keep that scam going, they will, and they will use threats of force to do so.

If I were accused of a crime under a Christian government, that had a valid basis for its existence, and I asked why the law of the jurisdiction applies to me, they would be able to answer: Because Jesus Christ is Lord, and the Bible says that the civil magistrate is a terror to evildoers (Romans 13). That would not be a circular appeal to man’s law, but an appeal to God and His law. Jesus Christ is the only valid basis for civil government. He is the Rock we can build on.

Of course, a magistrate in America claiming authority from Jesus Christ is going to be kicked out of his job. That would be unconstitutional. The only valid basis for government has been ruled unconstitutional.

Our choice as individuals is Jesus Christ or absurdity. That applies to government as well. They’ve chosen absurdity, and Christians haven’t called them on it. We’ve played along with their scam and their idolatry.

American government is based on idolatry, and Christians should be resisting it wherever possible, and calling everyone involved in it to repentance.

Presuppositional Apologetics Destroys America’s System of Government

July 4, 2016

First off, when I speak of destroying America’s government, I mean rhetorically demonstrating the absurdity of it, not violently overthrowing it. Though, I’m about to demonstrate why it is antichrist and needs to go away. Happy Independence Day!

Presuppositional apologetics is a system of Christian apologetics where you don’t argue about evidence with unbelievers, but show how every sentence the unbeliever utters presupposes the God of the Bible. That is, you demonstrate the inconsistencies between their professed unbelief and how they behave, or their presuppositions.

If you get a ticket for speeding, the cop will cite a certain statute on your ticket. How does the cop know that the law he cites applies to you? He just assumes that because you’re within the range of his particular gun that his law applies to you. I’ll assume we’re talking about Colorado, but this is true of any state or municipality. Here’s what the cop’s argument boils down to:

1. The laws of Colorado apply within the territory of Colorado.
2. You’re within the geographical boundaries of Colorado.
Conclusion: The laws of Colorado apply to you.

What is the basis for premise 1? How does the cop know the laws of Colorado apply within Colorado? If you take the ticket to court, you can put the cop on the stand, ask him this question and watch him squirm. A smart cop might appeal to the state or U.S. Constitution, but the only possible reason he can give is that the law applies, because the law says it applies. That is an invalid answer, because it is circular reasoning. There is nothing else they can say.

To drive your point home, during your speeding ticket trial, you hold up a lovely bound volume, with a gold embossed title saying, “Bob’s Law for the State of Colorado”. You flip open to the first page, and it says, “1-1a. Bob’s laws apply to everyone inside the boundaries of the state of Colorado.” You tell the judge and the cop that Bob’s laws apply because Bob’s law says so. Bob’s law is every bit as valid (or invalid) as the laws of the state of Colorado.13423757_848101832001253_1489153994269602614_n

I don’t care whether Bob’s law was voted on by a legislature or by one person or a million. If the only reason the law applies is because the law says it applies, that is circular and not a valid answer. The fact that the state of Colorado uses force to enforce its law doesn’t make it right. Might does not make right. In fact, if Bob’s law submits to Christ as Lord, and lines up substantially closer to God’s law, it is more valid.

Of course, this is a cute way that people have successfully used to get out of minor tickets. But it is absolutely just as valid for any law including murder, rape and kidnapping. There is no true basis or argument for why any law in the U.S. applies to anyone. The American system of government is hereby refuted and destroyed. No cop or politician has any valid basis for any authority other than his willingness to employ deadly force.

When a cop, prosecutor, judge or whoever says the law applies because the law says it applies, they are revealing what their ultimate authority is–man’s law and the violence used to enforce it. The only proper ultimate authority is Jesus Christ. Everyone must choose an ultimate authority.

America has determined that for government to choose Christ as the ultimate authority is unconstitutional, so it is easy to refute that system, because when you reject Christ, you’re choosing absurdity. Jesus encouraged us to build our house on the rock, but American government is built on sand.

When the people accept man’s law as the ultimate authority, they accept it by blind faith; that is, it becomes their religion. It is an antichrist religious system–a religion built only on the power of the state. Christians have a duty to oppose an idolatrous government, and rebel against it whenever it is wise to do so.
