‘We must elect good men into office.’
This is the gospel of men who presuppose themselves to be good men and have good desires, whether on the left or the right, or who identify with Libertarianism or with Communism or with Reconstructionism.
‘We must elect good men into office.’
This is the gospel of everyone who has voted, presupposing that the voters of other men were bad men with bad desires, whether on the left or the right, or who identify with Libertarianism or with Communism or with Reconstructionism.
By the only standard of goodness that matters: that of Jesus Christ, the good King of a good kingdom, full of men who want to be good, good men do not run for office and good men do not elect men into office because desiring Benefactors who exercise authority is an objectively bad thing for the exact same reason why men are dissatisfied with their current Benefactors who exercise authority and want to elect different men to rule over their neighbor so they can be satisfied.
Men desire to be ruled over by other men. They love it. They need it. The anarchistic Gospel of God is not foremost one of eradicating ignorance with education, but one of chasing away cobwebs of fear and unrighteousness in dead, dusty, hardened hearts. It is not a lack of knowledge that must be overcome, but the willful sin that darkens and debases men’s minds.
You see, men need their feudalism to feel safe from the unknown, protected from personal failure, insured against invasion or natural disaster, and justified in their sloth and apathy that creates and sustains kingdoms that produce civil slavery and hardened hearts.
Men need constitutions to bind them to the fate of their neighbor, contracting them together in mutual surety for collective debt, walking by sight of guaranteed civil provision, instead of by the faith of God’s Providence; forcing one another to be responsible for each other’s fiat prosperity, enslaving each other for their mutual want of forced benefits: those sacrifices with the blood of struggle in them.
Men need rulers to perform their social virtues for them through a bureaucratic Corban, taking care of their neighbor through social welfare schemes and government services in their sloth, and taking care of themselves through the application of benefits in their covetousness. Men want to be able to break the Sabbath, resting now to work it off later, borrowing against the future so they can fail to even pay back the interest, much less the principle.
Men are chained to that table by their own rejection of God and the personal responsibilities that come with His Gospel of Freemen under righteousness. Men reject the opportunity to walk by faith in an adhocracy of freewill association, taking care of each other through exclusive charity instead of taxation, and praying for daily bread through hope, instead of socialist entitlement.
This is not so much an ignorance issue as it is a conflict of interest issue, because when the ignorance is confronted and the light is revealed, the men in bondage often scurry back into the darkness, defending the protection of their cage, safeguarding their illusions of statism more desperately than their illusions over any other thing, even including the subjects of abortion and apathy towards abortion. They are as tenacious as ancient Israel, chasing after the dainties of Pharaoh or other foreign gods, rejecting God’s Providence, and binding themselves by social contracts rather than by love.
The hearts of men are full of hatred, cowardice, sloth, and covetousness. Likewise, it leads them into the civil traps that God has always called slavery, leading to their own destruction, damnation, and economic collapse. Try and educate those hearts about the alternative Kingdom of Heaven that liberates man from the dominion of man, and being unregenerate, they will play dead, as is custom in the Valley of Dry Bones. But some may see their error, come alive and begin loving their neighbor as themselves, walking in repentance, and seek the literal, jurisdictional, alternative Kingdom that is built upon the rock and bound together in love, forgiveness, and life and lasts from generation to generation.
Bankrupt bureaucracies are installed by Christless men as a by-product of the socialism in their hearts, but they are used by God to bring judgement on those depraved men through the heavy legal and financial burdens of governments in debt.
Electing men into authoritative office is a wicked work. Authoritative office invariably takes taxes to work. In this way, authoritative office is a terror to wicked works. This is why you pay taxes, to teach you to cry out to God in repentance.
Do not put your faith in false gods, human rulers, fathers of the earth, and Benefactors who exercise authority. Be good men. Obey the gospel of good men. Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand; the Kingdom that does not depend on taxation or Benefactors who exercise authority, but depends solely on charity redistributed by pastors who do not exercise authority, but serve the people in a way that emulates their good King, binding them by their voluntary servanthood, in a kingdom bound in voluntary faith, hope, and love.
