It is very heartening to hear of local officials in New York and elsewhere starting to stand up against the central government’s deceptive power grab disguised as gun safety.  It is the Biblical responsibility of the lower magistrate to lead the people against a tyrannical higher magistrate, in this case Barack Hussein Obama.

However, this legal right of the lower magistrate presupposes a commitment to  reestablish the rule of God and his law.  If this is lacking the resistance is no better than the Jewish rebels who resisted the Army of Nebuchadnezzar to the bitter end.  We must face the bitter reality that Barack Obama is America’s Nebuchadnezzar, called by God from a foreign land to discipline his lawless church.

Returning to the Constitution is exactly the wrong approach because the Constitution stands in defiance of the Word of God.  We must return to God and His law as our standard if we expect Him to bless our resistance.

Unfortunately, this is not usually the attitude of the typical American Christian conservative.  The February 15 edition of Freedom Outpost featured the 25-0 vote of the Oswego County legislature in a resolution against the recently passed draconian gun laws in New York state.

Oh my friends there are patriots abounding that are standing up for liberty and the Constitution. They will not have the law of the land trampled under foot by zealous, emotional politicians who would violate the law through means of unlawful laws in order to make themselves look good and place a feeling of security around the people they govern, while not providing a shred of security for them. They are moving in the direction of slavery, not liberty. They are making the people vulnerable, not secure or safe.

It’s good to see counties like Oswego and others standing up for the law and for liberty against the tyrants in New York’s government. Take heart, it isn’t just happening there, but around the country!

The article spoke of a “third militia” in addition to the federal military and national guard.  This third militia is said to be comprised of the people, who are called upon to defend the state when the others will not.

I wish it were true, but the terrifying fact is that our forefathers gave away most of our powers of self-defense when they ratified the Constitution in 1787.   This reality is hidden by the MYTH – popular among conservatives — of the citizen militia always on guard against tyranny.

Unlike the 21st Amendment, which specifically repealed the 18th, the 2nd Amendment did not repeal the damage done in the body of the Constitution.

Section 1: The eighteenth article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.

Section 2: The transportation or importation into any State, Territory, or Possession of the United States for delivery or use therein of intoxicating liquors, in violation of the laws thereof, is hereby prohibited.

Here are some excerpts from our MythBusters Case#19, where the nearly complete grant of power to the Federal government is exposed.

The central government has 13 positive powers related to “defense,” compared to the states two positives and two negatives.  Do the algebra and that is 13 to zero in favor of the central government.  They were no doubt smirking, “All of the power related to the militia belongs to us, but we’ll let you do all the heavy lifting of training them for us.”   What a deal!

The states can’t even defend themselves under the Constitution without permission from the national government now headed by Barack Hussein Obama.   The U.S. Constitution is a slender reed to rely on for defense against Federal tyranny.

The Bill of Rights did not repeal the 13 defense-related rights in the body of the Constitution.  The 2nd Amendment’s call for a well-regulated militia does not overturn the power delegated to Congress in Article I for “organizing, arming, and disciplining the militia…”?  The 2nd Amendment should have read something like this:

Section 1: The power for organizing, arming, disciplining, and governing the militia is hereby restored to the states individually and the states may use it to execute the laws of the state, suppress insurrections, or repel invasions as they see fit.

Section 2: A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Conservatives like to boast that these are part of the “limited, delegated powers” that were granted to the Federal government in Article I.  Everything not listed here is reserved to the states or to the people.  Very comforting.  The big question is, what is not listed here?   Certainly not the right to regulate the militia.

Unfortunately, the Constitution doesn’t allow for the well-regulated so-called “third militia” comprised of the people.  The people are a subset of the states and as we have seen the surrender of power by the states was almost total.

Case Closed:  This was one reason Patrick Henry hated the proposed U.S. Constitution and fought its passage bitterly in the Virginia Ratifying Convention.  As he stated on June 9, 1788: “Are we at last brought to such an humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense?…. The power of arming the militia, and the means of purchasing arms, are taken from the states by the paramount powers of Congress….”

Three cheers for those local officials who are taking a stand, but unfortunately even the Biblical right of interposition has been stripped from us by Lincoln’s unCivil War.  It is time to repent before God and return to the bedrock of liberty found in the higher law as our authority.  That includes passages such as Psalm 149:6,7ff:  “Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations…”

Weeks after the fact, the Sandy Hook tragedy is still fresh on the mind because twenty of those murdered were children of such a tender age.  Families have been devastated for life.

Tearful and determined people demonstrated in Washington D.C. with signs reading, “Never forget Sandy Hook.”  And who can forget a tragedy of such magnitude.  People are demanding, and rightly so, that something be done about these massive school shootings.  An article in February 3 issue of Freedom Outpost stated the following:

A father of a Sandy Hook Elementary School student testified on January 28, 2013 in a Working Group Public Hearing at the Connecticut State Capitol on gun violence prevention. While Bill Stevens’ fifth grade daughter was not harmed in the incident, she was a part of the children that were in “lock down” during the shooting and following it. However, Mr. Stevens said that his daughter’s friend’s little sister was one of the children that was murdered…

All of which serves to reinforce the Myth: We need more gun control laws to put an end to these mass gun killings.

The myth is so superficial that MythBusters can’t help but suspect the motives of its perpetrators.  You don’t have to look very far into history, recent social experimentation, and the Bible to conclude that the gun control argument is a fraud.  We found the evidence to be overwhelming.

A recent article in GodFather Politics bemoans President Obama’s Islamic sympathies and recent actions in an article entitled, “State Dept. Recruits Jihadists to Join Foreign Service.”

In what can only be described as a mind-boggling policy move, the State Department recruited Muslim participants at a conference sponsored by groups with ties to radical Islamists to become members of its foreign service.

This Administration’s blind trust of radical Islamists has led to the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Libya and elsewhere … Much has been written, outside the mainstream media, about the infiltration of the Obama Administration by the Muslim Brotherhood, particularly at the State Department, where Clinton’s top aide had undisputed family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.  With the White House delivering F-16s to the radicals in charge of Egypt even as it tries to disarm Americans, it’s clear the wolves are in charge of the hen house.

BLOG comments call on Congress to “do something,” evidence of a prevailing Christian conservative MYTH:  that government is able to police and somehow purge Islamic influences because America “was founded as a Christian nation.”

MythBusters conclusion:  Congress can do nothing.  This report is very disturbing, but it should be no surprise and is the inevitable outcome of the Constitution’s pluralistic First Amendment.  Congress hands are tied because the First Amendment forbids it from interfering with the “free exercise” of religion.” Islam, Taoism, witchcraft and virtually any other religion are all perfectly acceptable under our godless Constitution.

The First Amendment is a direct violation of the First Commandment: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”  The United States Constitution directly contradicts Biblical law on this and at least 75 other points and is thus in direct competition with the God of the Bible.

If we were functioning as a Christian nation the right to hold public office would be contingent on an oath-bound covenant to govern by the law of God.  God’s perfect “law of liberty”  (James 1:25; 2:12) is the only source of true justice.  All competing law codes, including Sharia, Talmudic and atheistic humanism, are tyrannical and would be banned.

But again Article VI (par. 3) of the U.S. Constitution forbids any such religious test oath in direct contradiction to the Bible:  “No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”

The Bible is full of such religious test oaths.  One good example is Ex. 24:3 where “Moses came and recounted to the people all the words of the Lord and all the ordinances; and all the people answered with one voice, and said, ‘All the words which the Lord has spoken we will do!’”

Many of the anti-Federalists understood this from the beginning, but most American Christians still don’t have a clue.   “An anti-Federalist in North Carolina wrote:  ‘The exclusion of religious tests is by many thought dangerous and impolitic….Pagans, Deists and Mahometans might obtain office among us.’ For another North Carolinian, David Caldwell, the prohibition of religious tests ‘constituted an invitation for Jews and Pagans of every kind to come among us’” (Isaac Kramnick, The New York Times, 1994).

All proposed laws would be tied directly to the Bible in a Christian nation.  The Massachusetts Body of Liberties did exactly that.  Numerous death penalty provisions of its penal code quote chapter and verse from the Pentateuch for their authority.

But God’s law is considered too harsh for the ears of modern Christians, let alone modern humanists.  So they invent theologies to dismiss its abiding validity.  In the New Testament we are supposedly no longer under the law.  True for justification, but absolutely false for sanctification, both individual and political.

God’s law is and always has been the standard for righteousness and that fact should delight the heart of every Christian (see Ps 19 & Ps 119).  If God’s law encoded in Exodus 20-23 does not delight your heart, then its time for a theology-check.

At least some of the anti-Federalists understood this. They were the true American patriots for resisting the godless U.S. Constitution.  The Federalists were false patriots.  Our founding Federalists sowed the wind of Biblical antinomianism and now we their posterity are reaping the whirlwind.

The Constitution and Declaration of Independence are like Jeroboam’s two golden calves, set up to replace the worship of Jehovah and substitute a man-made law.  Why didn’t God’s people recognize and repudiate those golden idols?  For the same reason Christians today don’t recognize and repudiate the Constitution and Declaration for the idols they are?

We must recognize them for what they are and repent to God by formally renouncing the godless U.S Constitution as individuals and churches.  It is our only hope.  Calling for a return to these documents is like a dog returning to its vomit.

Case Closed:  If we refuse to judge these idols, God will continue to judge us by means of them.  God will inexorably break the back of any nation that formally rejects His law in a document such as the U.S. Constitution.

Obama and Islam are the modern day Babylonians, God has sent this foreign invader to judge His lawless people.  Like Israel of old Christian conservatives insist on railing against and resisting God’s rod of discipline without first returning to His law.  They demand their supposed inalienable rights at the same time rejecting His law and their responsibility thereto.

The only relief will come with formal repentance from our covenant-breaking founding documents.  America was founded as an allegedly neutral, and thus anti-Christian nation in 1787.  Jesus said he who is not for me is against me.  Christians need to repent of that rebellious act immediately in formal ceremonies of repudiation, repentance and return to the law of God.

A good first step would be to sign the “Confession of Guilt and Petition for Forgiveness in the Matter of Our Forefathers’ Ratification of the United States Constitution”.  Study the material on that site and our HistoryMythBusters main site.
