In order to understand the duties of a position as a magistrate—one must understand the responsibilities of that office, and the responsibilities to the citizens as dictated within the boundaries of the Constitution—but—most importantly is the understanding given in—the scope of civil authority as given in the Bible and Romans 13:3 “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil…”.  Romans 13:4 explains, responsibilities further—“For he is the minster of God to thee for good. …”

Those few parts of God’s word help in explaining the confusion and chaos we have today, as directives come forth out of the current administration that make no sense but rather seem to suggest a drift toward danger, with showing nothing but a bent for destruction of the family and the country.

The very cords that bind the culture and citizenship together are being broken, one right after the other——even as there are many parts to the cord and the culture——they appear to snap as if they are made of nothing—having no standards or principles to stand by.  Some of these cord make-up the “Spiritual” with the Bible as the Law of God which anchors “Western Civilization”.  While others pertain to and anchor the Union that makes us strong and give the people much benefit in unity.

As we view the situation—it would appear there is “Agitation” and “Deceit” at almost every corner of the land and within government—were the civic frustration is growing as would a wild fire.  There appears to be little or no restraint to prevent the government from doing whatever it might choose to do.  The question then must be ask—   Why can’t the people make the correction?      What is the cause of this agitation?   Because if the agitation to or within the people does not correct itself—–we will reach a point when it can no longer be denied—the union will be in danger—-as all cord holding the country together will be broken—-as happened in the French Revolution.  The government will become so fundamentally corrupt as to make the very idea of a good law impossible and force extreme action.  Good will be called sin—&—-Sin will be called good.

The morals and ethics of the citizens fell well before the break out of what you see in government with the deterioration and the failure of the social fabric having a not so silent revolution in 60’s—-and in their world of Sex, Perversion and Drugs—–this havoc had prepared the scene that brought on the political deterioration of today.   The church was blind to the havoc back then as it is now—–the young of that generation put in place, on the path a standard that was perverted—–leading the culture forward too what we have today.

Unless the lesser magistrate is one who fears God and understands his duty, standing in the gap—–you can surely kiss the country and its culture good-by.

Rule of Law

We are now witnessing the collapse of the “Rule of law”.  The present day so called Christian is perfectly willing and content to have their faith and belief system remain a private affair—-never claiming God’s Law—His morals—–His ethics—-&—-His “Biblical Law that apply in their life and “World View”.
The question must be—–is this guy (me) saying anything close to the truth????  Well “The Barna Group” recently found that 80% of the Christians do not know how to apply their Christianity to their everyday life. Why the Church will not even tell you or preach on—what Peter and the other Apostles said in Acts 5:29——look it up.

What are Ethics

True belief must be justified—-in that it must be grounded in knowing it is truth and/or can be known to be true.  Epistemology is the study of “The Theory of Knowledge”.  It is through this lens called knowledge we decide what we believe to be the truth about the world in which we live—–thereby defining our worldview as we attempt to live in that world.

The defining of this knowledge will be referenced or anchored to one of two elements “God” or “Man”.  Either God determines the nature of reality and the interpretation of all facts or it will be man that takes that place with his feeble ability in his reasoning process.

Cornelius Van Til in his book “The Reformed Pastor and Modern Thought” 1971 says this about the subject regarding man and God in Epistemology.

“Every appeal to law, no matter how that law be conceived, involves, in the last analysis, an appeal either to God or to man as the ultimate arbiter in both moral and intellectual matters.”

VanTil hinges ethics and morals (the Law) to the intellect (Epistemology) and with this hinging we get a deeper understanding of —what we should do and the why we should do it.  Ethics is not simply an issue of right action, but it is also a matter of right motivation and right goals.   Ethics requires systematic moral thinking along with the teaching of what man ought to be, how he ought to act and why he ought to act in a certain ways.  The word “ought” is a spiritual word and can only be commanded from God to man. It is a scary thing to not realize the danger and seriousness of sinning against God for it carries a greater degree of punishment then man is willing to acknowledge—–today.  I will quote but one verse from the Bible which not only tells man to not reject knowledge, and the law of God——and worse—-in fact it passes the punishment of his action in evil on to his children.

Hosea 4:6 (King James Bible)

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will forget thy children.”

Politicians will never consider the depth of their action and the “Why” they are doing what they are doing—they tell you nothing—–ignoring constitutional basics—-even stooping so low as to disregard common courtesy in answering your inquiry—–they continually make the claim of right in their vote or position—–saying—-it is good for the welfare of the people—with no regard for the Biblical right or the Constitutionality of the issue.  This disregard of the deeper elements of ethics (motive and right reason) can only lead to sinning and punishment for them and the country because they lack the knowledge needed (Epistemology) and we the people do not understand the seriousness of their actions and the fact it is harming us and we should be very concerned with the outcome of their actions.  God is warning us in and through Hosea His prophet—–He will—— Forget the children.

We shall see—–Don’t you think????

The Democrat debate last night looked more like a wealth redistribution convention (everyone’s wealth but theirs). Just a bunch of socialists competing with each other to see who could spend more tax dollars than the other to further increase their voter base amongst their assigned victims classes they created over the last 47 years. This is the main reason the democrats don’t want to create jobs! It means more people on welfare and those people will have to vote democrat to keep their ‘entitlements’! The democrats in particular, are addicted to spending other people’s money because they are part of the entitlement crowd themselves, living off of the people. Politicians working to improve the lives of ALL of us and to better our standing in the world deserve their cushy jobs, the others do not.
The income equality issue came up and the crowd cheered. I wonder if Hillary and many in that crowd are willing to share their wealth with the poor. Do any of them live in the poor communities they say they want to help? I doubt it! This reminds me of a person I know who always talks about how America stole the property from Native Americans. I asked her if she was willing to give her 100 acre farm back to the Native Americans and she had no answer. I did extensive research of her ancestry and found out that some of them owned slaves. I mentioned this to her and again, no response.
Sanders spoke about ‘Black Lives Matter’ and expressed to the crowd how tormented he felt that hundreds of blacks die in the inner cities but he failed to mention how they died. Some democrats are blaming the police by saying the police are “too soft on crime”! DUH! By the way, doesn’t Sanders hate the 2 percent but he loves Hillary? He also claims that the voters don’t care about Hillary’s emails so she should be off the hook. That sound logical???
Two years ago, during a disagreement with the Republicans on an issue, Obama made the point that ‘bringing a knife to a gunfight and you will lose’! Translation: “We will do anything we want in order to win, including not following the laws or the Constitution and we know you Republicans will not”
How long will our freedoms in America last with our current government running the show? God help us!

One World Order

Most folks think it nonsense or possibly strange with a touch of conspiracy when you talk of a “One World Order”—even as the phenomena is growing and talked of—–more openly.

Here is yet another article—showing the sickness in direction and the path that we are  on:

Between the UN (United Nations) the World Bank, IMF, the FED along with the positioning of the U.S. Government we have a pile of corruption—if you throw in a lack of  Ethics & Morals—with the psychopathic personalities running the operations is it any wonder we continue down the wrong path.

The ideology (body of ideas) within the culture has in the last 50-60 years shifted the worldviews onto or into something that is less than a Christian worldview—-the Changing of the Religion to Secular—with the Economic make-up of Capitalism into a combination of Socialism, Marxism, with a political state of Welfare and Political Correctness (PC)—we continue to slide—-not good.

No one is talking philosophically of the deeper points of culture—–that at one time made up this country—like the “Fear of God” with an understanding of righteousness—-the truth of “liberty and what it stands for—How we get it and what are “Rights” and where do they come from.

Instead we are fools enough—–to think a government with control of everything will treat us righteous and fair—never realizing that government is made up of sinful people who will run things as they wish.  This evil will flood in every possible nook and canny of the culture—–including a “One World Order”.

We are sliding at an ever quick pace—so I think—with no one stopping to think we may not be asking the correct questions or correcting the right problems.  Would we not want to challenge the belief system and/or “By What Stand” things get established—what makes anything right.  Will a “One World Order” make a thing “Right” and by whose standard is that order right?

Emotion and Fact

Below are a couple of sentences that come from Andy Hoffman’s Daily Thoughts—just received today VIA e-mail—here is the link scroll don’t until you get to his column:

Quoted from the above article/link
“In the past 24 hours alone, the so-called strongest economy in the world- the United States of Present and Future Destruction – reported weaker than expected personal income; a dramatic, “unexpected” decline in the “pending home sale index”; the ninth straight monthly decline of the Dallas Fed manufacturing index; an “unexpected” decline in the Case-Shiller Home Price Index; and a shockingly ugly August trade deficit of $67 billion, compared to expectations of “just” $59 billion.”

I just had breakfast (this morning) with a political associate and friend who in his thinking over the years—–thought—–like so many—-it was just a matter of education and a feeding of the facts—-to the electorate and all will be well.  Those voters would be convinced you were right in your assessment of the facts and fall in line with what you thought was the right thing to do—-voting for that person or supporting the issue—after having the facts explained.

Why did I put the link and few facts above—&—-What does any of that have to do with my friend?

Just this—-The above are supposed to be facts indicating the health of the economy and if anyone wants to dig—–can find supporting evidence as to the truth of the above—–but most of all—-common sense will tell you what you need to know and show you that documentation in the debt numbers.  According to Mark Levin—-he claims we are $200 Trillion in debt in unfunded liabilities—Plus the $18T everyone should know about and the number they see daily.  Isn’t it strange not many are up in arms over the possibility of the country going down the tubes—bankrupt—Wasted—the Constitution gone?  There is no emotion regarding this possibility—–even as——they allow themselves to be worked into frenzy—–over the smallest of unimportant things in life—the citizen continually being guided and pushed around—–why is this?  Man does not want to think deeply, nor disturb his comfortable seat by the TV nor disturb his position in life—-the middle class will need to be disturbed big time—-then and only then you might get a rise out of him—but by that time it will be too late to make any corrections—-foundations will be destroyed—with emotion or knowing facts correcting nothing.
We Shall See—-Don’t you think????

We have come to a point in history where it is necessary to think hard and look deep into the actions of the politicians, their paths and where they are leading us with their outcomes, John Boehner—-Speaker of the House has resigned and the talking heads are speculating on the why’s of the action. Covering every aspect of the PC arena—-but If we look at emotions, opinions with the raising apprehensions of the people and the political situation it makes all the sense in the world that a confused mess should force the undoing of weak leadership——–that failing had to come somewhere at the top.

The confused politicians with their perverted standards continue to give us misdirection in judgements of path and courses of action.  We have seen this on any number issues in the past weeks and of course over the years.  If the foundations and standards be destroyed and judgements confused is it not the usual path to be taken that leads to social chaos?  History has shown us this any number of times.
Edmond Burke wrote of the French Revolution August 9, 1789 to Lord Charlemont:

“England gazing with astonishment at a French struggle for liberty and not knowing whether to blame or to applaud!”

Burke continues;

“Men must have a certain fund of moderation to qualify them for freedom else it becomes noxious to themselves and a prefect nuisance to every body else.”

Burke even as he may have had some confusion in and of the French Revolution—-in the beginning of the affair—-quickly came to the correct understanding of their motives and attempts at defining liberty by the year 1790.   By 1790 the mood of curious approval by Burke and the English had turned from that—–to one of defense of the English Parliament, the King and Queen, along with their system of government.  Burke saw the perversion of the thinking and wanted to keep that revolutionary emotional thinking out of England.  Burke and his insight of counter revolutionary was 50 years ahead of Karl Marx Socialism and/or Communism—-Burke wanted nothing to do with it—I am not sure we have the same thought today.

History truly does repeat itself and we need to take close note of what is happening and judge carefully as to what that is, what is in fact happening in 2015—-we are having our standards destroyed one by one and todays troubles are not new but can be found in past years.  If we cannot find justice with fairness and keep a Biblical standard we are doomed—what was happening under Boehner as Speaker of the House was a problem—but note well what is about to happen without Boehner is a possible developing problem of a much larger scope.  The Decade of the 1790’s and the French Revolution was a problem let us hope we see none of that Social, Cultural and Political Confusion that was of the French debacle.

Charles S. Peirce (1839-1941) is written about in Paul Kurtz’s book (1966)— “American Philosophy in the Twentieth Century” A source book from Pragmatism to Philosophical Analysis.

The particular section on Peirce opens with these two sentences:

“Charles S. Peirce is probably the most profound and creative philosopher that America has produced.  Though his writings are often obscure and disorganized, they are brilliant in their philosophical virtuosity.”

I quote these opening lines after reading Peirce’s “The Fixation of Beliefs” written in 1877—were Peirce says this about Charles Darwin—remember Darwin’s book “Origin of the Species” was published in 1859 not to many years earlier.

Peirce says this:
“The Darwin controversy is, in large part, a question of logic, Mr. Darwin proposed to apply the statistical method to biology.”

Darwin in his development of the Theory of Evolution is using the Doctrine of Probabilities—-as did Clauius and Maxwell in their studies of the properties of gases.

Peirce goes on to say this:

“…Darwin while unable to say what the operation of variation and natural selection in every individual case will be, demonstrates that in the long run they will adapt animals to their circumstances.” 

I believe Peirce is questioning Darwin—in his supposed observations—for Peirce goes on to say this:

“The object of reasoning is to find out, from consideration of what we already know, something else which we do not know.  Consequently, reasoning is good if it be such as to give a true conclusion from true premises, and not otherwise.  Thus, the question of validity is purely one of fact and not of thinking.  A being the premises and B being the conclusion, the question is, whether these facts are really so related that if A is, B is.  If so, the inference is valid, if not, not.”

I laid these couple of sentences out to re-enforce what I am about to say.  My colleagues, just the other evening—— got into a somewhat heated discussion regarding Darwin and his theory of evolution.  It was said of my colleagues position, “Creationism”—it is unscientific and that it (that position) was actually killing science and the scientific method of discovery.

If in fact Peirce was not arguing against Darwin makes no matter—I will use Peirce’s positioning as the premise to make my point.  Darwin used the Doctrine of Probability, with a statically possibility of truth being there—all the while Darwin was flying in the face of God and what He says—showing no fear of Him who created man.  Truth is not some statistically right of some possible fact—-it will be God as creator or it will be some Theory of Man concocted by man for man’s evolution and coming into being——take your pick.

That lack of fear, with much aggression, showed forth the other night as the person would have nothing to do with
1/ Hearing my colleague’s position.
2/ Nor wanting to know if their position has logical flaws (as I say Peirce points out)
Neither one of the above two points interested the person—–which leads me to these questions.  If seeking after truth is of the most importance why are not people willing to find it?  And more to the point—–Todays individuals appear to not be interested in listening to or searching for truth.  I find this particularly true in the political arena—where the politician fakes listening with the occasional yes moving of the head—–with a nothing ness of truth settling in and/or making some penetration of his logic—-there seems to be no leverage with truth today.

That person walked away from my colleagues, I supposed frustrated at—we poor ignorant Christian—– believing God created the world in 7 days—no less.

We Shall See—someday—Don’t you think?

Could This Be It

Here is something you may want to view:

36 minutes—–Greg Hunter interviewing Jim Sinclair —- Jim is from a line of bankers and Wall Street investors that date back to the Robber Baron days—–so when he says someone is talking to him (says it in the video—see link above)—–it would be better if you listened to him—–&—-at least pay attention to what he might be saying.
Mr. Sinclair last year set-up an operation (Gold Exchange) in the Far East and has been dealing in Gold and Silver for some time now.

Listen to the video—–he is claiming something is due to happen this fall—so he was told.  Told by whom????—–he does not say—-which of course makes everything void and one big conspiracy—-but I had to throw it out there—for you to see and hear.

It Cannot End Well

The direction of the country will change or it will perish.
John Calhoun (1782-1850) —– On March 4th 1850, weaken by pneumonia, appeared in the Senate and ask that his remarks be read for him by his friend and colleague, Mr. Mason of Virginia.  Calhoun was attempting to avoid what he knew was coming—-a clash between North and South.  The general discontent of the south argued Calhoun—“…was not a consequence of the natural course of time and events, but rather of active interference on the part of the federal government.”  Calhoun died less than 30 days later on March 31, 1850.

He was prophetic in his predictions, and that this building conflict will in 10 short years lead to civil war—-from which I do not think we have recovered.  Oh yes! We became an industrial giant—filling in the gaps with addition States and thriving cities across the land—–but as Calhoun stated in his last speech “The Admission of California-and the General State of the Union” ( March 4, 1850) he believed and worded it this way—-“…the cords of union have been ripped asunder, and all power rests in the hands of the northern majority.”  The South he said—-“…has no compromise to offer but the Constitution  and no concession or surrender to make…”

Note well Calhoun said the bonding cords—that union was broken—-and they had only the constitution to fall back on—doesn’t that sound like something happening today?  With that Calhoun asked a couple of critical questions in the opening paragraphs of his speech.
1/ How can the union be persevered?
2/ What has caused this widely diffused and almost universal discontent?

Calhoun knew the South could not remain as things were and keep their honor of character and safety of their property.  (Sound familiar)  The equilibrium of government had shifted and the law of the land, through the constitution would not make the corrections needed.  Calhoun saw—– “…the last is a system of political measures, by which the original character of the government has been radically changed”.

Calhoun and the Southern States were trouble and plagued with this—-“…and governed by the will of the numerical majority, has now, in fact, the control of the government and the entire powers of the system.”  That majority (in the north) was ever stronger and more antagonistic toward the south.

I’ll stop there—you can read his speech and study Calhoun with the southern states causes of their discontent—-how the North kept pushing the South toward open conflict.  Is that not happening today and do we not have today a greater crisis than in those days of Calhoun—-in that the attack today is on and directed at all cords of social compact—Spirituality (ones Faith)—Ecclesiastical (doctrinal belief)—Social (law) and finally Political (Justice).  The fact that frustration and anxiety is in all elements of life—–tells one—-that discontent is about the citizens—to force the disunion of the social compact.

If one looks at the two (today verse 1850) time periods of that history and what Calhoun was dealing with—–he had none of the philosophical elements that develop in the last half of the 1800’s—-yet the evil was worked through numbers with in the government.  It was a majority with ill intent, wanting power with control and the ability to force their will and taxation were they wish—with no regard for truth or justice.

Today even as the people appear to be saying one thing—while the government is doing and giving us what they wish and all the while the evilness within the government is there and against the people.  The government has the strength of their corruption to force the evilness on all elements of the social fabric and people.  Note well——the outcome is going to be the same as in 1850 and Calhoun’s time—-a forced disunity because of a break down in knowing what the “Godly Righteousness” of the issue should be.

It will be interesting to follow and compare the breakdown of the Calhoun’s times and what is happenings today.  Calhoun saw something—What was it?  I do believe it was the same type of social insanity and beak down we see today—for the paths appear to have similar sign posts all along the way——and—It cannot end well.
We Shall See—Shortly
