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.
