Am I Angry?

          I have been told that there are people who can’t read my rantings because of the anger I express and that I present everything as absolutely true.  First of all, why would I present something I didn’t believe was true?  This rant is to let you know that my heart and mind are open to anything that is true.  From what I can determine, the Bible is absolutely true and has never been disproved.  The founding documents and writings of our founding fathers state that what they were doing was what they intended.  "I entirely concur in the propriety of resorting to the sense in which the Constitution was accepted and ratified by the nation. In that sense alone it is the legitimate Constitution."  This is the true foundation of our nation; however, as with the Bible, you have to go back to the founding papers to determine what the writer intended instead of what someone tells you they intended.  The best example I can give of this fact is the fictitious separation of church and state.  It appears in a letter by Thomas Jefferson to a Baptist congregation, assuring them that the government was not allowed to mess with their church.  What is really in the religion part of the first amendment?  It states that the government has no right to control religion, not that the Church shouldn’t be involved in government.  Most of the founders considered Christianity to be a vital part of our government and several of them stated that being a Christian should be a prerequisite to holding government office.  The majority of the problems in the world today could be solved by Christian leadership[1].  Yes, I know that is a strong and controversial statement, but I believe it to be true.


          Jesus is an absolutist and so am I.  There is nothing wrong in believing in absolutes as long as you are sure that the absolute you believe in is absolutely true.  Yes there are such things as absolutes and facts that cannot be disputed.  There absolutely is such a thing as right and wrong.  Misinterpretation would have you believe that killing is always wrong.  It depends on the circumstances.  Murder on the other hand is always wrong.  There is a difference between killing and murder.  The Bible for instance says that ‘thou shall not kill’; however, the original language used (which was given by God) said ‘thou shall not murder’.  Now which do you suppose is the absolute, killing or murder?  Killing can be the only recourse in war and protecting ones self and family.   The first commandment states “I am the Lord thy God!  You should have no other god’s but Me!” Jesus said; “I am the truth the way and the life, no one comes to the Father but by Me.”  This definitely exposes the fallacy of the statement that there are many paths the heaven. 


          There is a lot of distortion, misrepresentation, political correctness, misdirected information and revisionist history as well as blatant lying being heaped on us from all directions.  As far as I can tell this is all coming from those who want God out of our lives and to bring about fundamental changes to our country.  The door swings both directions.  We welcome those immigrants who come to us legally and wish to become Americans, and we welcome those to leave (as our ancestors did) who think that the grass is greener elsewhere. 


          Our government has provided more liberty and more freedoms than any other in the history of the world.  Our rights which are provided by Providence (God) are in jeopardy at present by those who would like to ruin what we have in order to consolidate their power and wealth.  I know you have heard that money is the root of all evil.  This phrase is supposed to have come from the Bible.  The truth is that the Bible says that the love of money is the root of all evil.  As Glenn Beck and others have said, in order to accomplish these goals they must discredit both God and our founders.  Just look at the record of Marxism (Socialism, Communism, Progressivism or whatever you want to label it), and you will find the history of death and destruction it has caused.  ”Government is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”[2]  Our Marxist friends are trying to accomplish the task of changing our government from servant to master.  The United States and its Capitalist system may not be perfect, but it is undoubtedly superior to anything else devised by the mind of man.  One of the biggest lies being told is that we are a democracy.  We are a republic, not a democracy.  I won’t go into the details of the differences here.  Suffice it to say that democracy is no better than mob rule. "Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."[3] 


          I guess it could be said that I show anger in my rants.  I would rather refer to this condition as righteous indignation.  When I see that there are those who are out to steal, kill and destroy, it is a call to action and these rants are that action.  I am not saying that we are at the point where we need to use force of arms.  “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government,”[4]  The vote is by far the best method of retaliation against those who would destroy the country.  “If we don’t use our freedoms to fight for our freedoms we will loose our freedoms.”[5]
