LIES THAT WE ACCEPT AS TRUTH!!!!!!

It amazes me when I realize that I have been accepting a lie as the truth and didn’t see it.

It happens because I do not stop to reason out whether it is true or not. I see this in others as well as myself, and I, as well as others, have built complicated understandings on very simple lies: which, of course are very flawed understandings.

Here is one of the best lies Satan has perpetrated on Americans, “This Country was founded on Christian principles”!

The truth is this Country was founded in rebellion to God by those who would not pay taxes!

Romans 13:1&2 (NIV) Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

The Colonies had a governing authority and they rebelled against it. The motto was “Taxation with out representation”, but Romans 13:6 says Christians should pay taxes.

The colonist would not pay taxes and they rebelled against England. These are the reasons the colonist formed this government and these are not Christian principles!

This leads me to realize the second greatest lie about this government and that is “We are free!” Free from what? We certainly are not free from unjust rule. And that leads us to the third greatest lie, “Those who hold office are servants to the people”!

You can throw rocks at me later, but right now stop and reason out what I am saying. When you vote for a candidate you are in effect saying that you want that man to rule over you. I know that Satan has you believing that you are choosing that person to serve you and your fellow man, but in reality you are giving him or her power to govern you. You are not choosing a servant you are choosing a master! It is true that the people have the power to choose another later, but for the term of that office that person is your master.

What ever those who hold office do to the people are not undone when they leave office. Taxes that are imposed stay imposed. The abortion that was legalized stays legalized. Jobs that were given to Mexico and China are not taken back. You may get rid of the master that you have chosen, but only by choosing another: who will tack on even more abuse for and to you.

Imagine how God feels when we choose a man to rule us when it is apparent that God should and even wants to be our master. The dangerous thing about God is that He will usually give us what we want. I believe that He has allowed this government to be established and exist as long as it has to demonstrate, or prove to mankind that it will not work.

Those who hold office know that it is not the people that elected them. They were put in office by money. It was money that enabled them to sway the people and that makes the people only pawns to be used. Why would a politician really have any respect for the people when they can be swayed with money? Doesn’t their loyalty really lie with the party that supplied the money to sway the people? If they do not toe the party line will they receive finances to run in the next election?

I always hear others say ‘Well I didn’t vote for him’, but if they participate in the system aren’t they guilty of what the system does? If someone drives the getaway car aren’t they guilty of the robbery? And if someone is murdered because of the robbery then aren’t they guilty of murder?

If you believe in this system or any system of government where a man governs another man then stop and reason it out and maybe you will reach the same conclusion that I have. Maybe you will not, but if a man must lie to get elected and he surly must, then why do we believe he will stop when he begins the work of that office?

Belief is an odd thing. We believe what we want to believe and if someone says something that doesn’t coincide with what we want to believe we will not accept it. We will usually refuse to consider an opposing view. Facts and common sense are oppressed in our minds and the opposing points are only targets to be destroyed. If that is how you view what I have said and you believe that the Bible is the Word of God then where does it say that man should rule himself? Remember the motto of this country is ‘Of the people, by the people, and for the people’.

    Ever wonder why a church is set up like our democratic system?

    jeremiah17,

    Well actually I had not thought about it. It is the method that is used in the churches that I have attended. It is a great question.

    If a group is going to meet together there are many decisions that must be made, such as where, when, what agenda, the list goes on and on. Because most all believe the democratic system is a plan of God then it is only logical that it is used. If you have read much of what I have written you know that I don’t believe it.

    I searched the Bible for the word “choose” to see if it gave an answer to how the group that meets together should make some, or all of the decisions, but if I could attain the answer that way I didn’t, or don’t yet understand it.

    It is plain to me that God should choose the leaders of the church and He did anoint Jesus “King of Kings and Lord of Lords”. Perhaps the problem is we view the pastor as a leader when we should only see him or her as a follower. It would help if the pastor would make that plain: over and over, because we do not have good memories and also because there are new members added frequently.

    I have had discussions with pastors when the pastor considered himself a leader and teacher and because of his pride he could not, or would not consider my side of the exchange: which of course meant there was no exchange.

    Anyway God does tell men to make choices, but I have not found anyplace where God told men to choose their own leaders. Perhaps Hosea 8:2-4 tells us what God thinks of man choosing leaders by their own power.

    When we choose church leaders by using a democratic system aren’t we choosing without God’s approval? How would we know God approves or disapproves? I am sure some will say we should pray about it, but prayer is our side of the exchange between man and God, it doesn’t reveal His side.

    If we view the choice as choosing someone to serve and not lead then perhaps it would be more correct. But then the person chose would have to always remember that his position is to serve and not to lead or be the master. It becomes a larger problem when the Lord gives a pastor success, because everyone gives the credit to the pastor instead of to God.

    The problem is also added to when the pastor is told to lead the flock. It brings to mind the verse about the blind leading the blind. The pastor is one of the sheep, Jesus is the Shepherd. Sheep can’t lead sheep any better than the blind can lead the blind. The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep (John 10:12). I believe most pastors are hired hands. I do not mean to say all pastors are worthless nor that they should not be paid, only that they should not consider themselves shepherds or teachers.

    It is a dilemma. We must have a place or a system where we can meet together, because we are commanded not to give up meeting together. Every time someone is baptized they are raised from the dead and those who are loosing their faith are sick and must be healed. We must encourage one another to continue this work and the church is a place, perhaps the only place, where one can speak openly about the God of the universe, which results in everyone being encouraged.

    Anyway, to repeat myself, that was a very good question: still is.

  3. jeremiah17 says:

    Seems to me, whenever God was going to do something, He always had someone chosen in authority.If the sheep can hire and fire a pastor, he really isnt leading.The church board is. In scripture, it says apostles prophets and so forth as the leadership. I think we have it backwards.

  4. astudent says:

    jeremiah17,

    Sorry about the delay. Somehow your comment was flagged as spam, though it was passed at first. I don’t think I did anything to cause it, but I have been known to make a mistake more than once.

    I believe you are correct. God does have someone chosen to lead the Church. The Shepard of His Church is Jesus and all others are only sheep.

    I tried to think of a way that a church leader could be chosen and we would know that God chose them and I could not find a way. Then it dawned on me that we should not be trying to choose a leader at all. There should be no recognizable leader of any church, only servants.

    We choose a man to lead when the man is really only a sheep and no sheep is qualified to lead other sheep. We look up to the pastor when he is only a man. We should not put any man in such a dangerous position.

    We have corrupted the Church by choosing one man to give a sermon on Sunday when the Bible says (1 Cor 14:29-31 NIV) Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said. And if a revelation comes to someone who is sitting down, the first speaker should stop. For you can all prophesy in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged.

    When a Church service is conducted as the Bible tells us it is not a lecture by one man, but it is a Bible study by the entire congregation.

    Satan’s main tool to control man is money and when we set up a system where a man is paid to lead the flock we have given Satan leverage. A pastor that might agree with me might also think his income would be at risk if he were to implement a service like the Bible tells us it should be. I personally do not think God would penalize someone for doing what is right, but I can see the uncertainty and danger in the decision to change the format of Sunday service.

    We have whole educational systems that are set up to produce leaders! Many are paid to do this and they do not realize they are appointing sheep as leaders! These people think they are doing a great work and they are sincere in their efforts, but they turn out pastors that give only their own views on Sunday and no one is permitted to interrupt their sermons. We are not encouraged or even permitted to prophesy! That is not right.

  5. Excellent post , You hit the
    mark with this, I just don’t understand why people quite get what you’re saying.
    I’m not for sure how many people I’ve talked to concerning this very
    thing in the past , and they just don’t understand.

    I like you am employed with the carpet business and it is
    a very good thing to see fellows associated this business with the same mentalities and thoughts
    , Excellent post!

  6. No doubt rebellion may be the final alternative for incorrect federal government decision but silent protestes must also be taken into look at.

  7. astudent says:

    Moshe,

    Please forgive me for such a late response; Truth is I am just lazy.

    I don’t believe rebellion is the final alternative for incorrect government decisions. One only receives a different government that does the same things the first one did.

    God told the people what a ruler that they choose would do to them.
    (1 Sam 8:11-18 NIV) He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will do: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. Your menservants and maidservants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day.”

    The rulers do the same today: except they take more. We are all slaves to the government. We think that we elect servants when really we are appointing men as our masters.

    As for silent protests (I assume you mean peaceful protest) I don’t see much good. Those in charge already know they are doing wrong, so we are not going to tell them anything they do not already know and if the protest were successful we would only get a different ruler that would do the same things.

    Politicians want the office for what it can do for them; not what it can do for us.

    God is the only ruler that cares for us over His own desires. A prayer is the best protest, because it is addressed to the One with the power to sway those in office. That, of course, is no guarantee He will grant the request. After all He already knew our request and it probably will accomplish nothing in His plans. We are only children and children do not tell their father what to do.

    ISIAIh 41 BRING forth your IDOLS did they PREACH to you see they can’t speak they can’t DO ANYTHING all they do is cause confusion. spalms 115 and spalms 135 thier IDOLS are FALSE cant speak can’t hear cant smell and those that make them shall become like them. Jeremiah 10 they nail their IDOL down like a scarecrow it can’t move can’…t speak can’t move must be carried these are nothing but the WORK of CON men.john 10 jesus christ sais his sheep hear his voice and another voice thy will not follow and if another person tries to preach to them they WILL FLEE from him. jeremiah 5 the priests bear rule on their own authority what will you do when your judged my word is not inside them. Now here is the kicker john 5 son of man voice goes back in time mathew 16 jesus christ claims to be the son of man.‎1 cor2 mind of CHRIST preached internally and john 16 sais the spirit of truth comes in the future. Ezekiel 13 lying prophets of ISRAEL my word is not inside them saying god sais god sais god sais wrote hoping mankind would CONFIRM their WORDS. all of this is EASILY verifiable.

    jeff,

    Please forgive me, but I do not really understand what you are trying to convey to me. It may well be clear to you, but not to me. I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer, so would you try again.

    What do you mean when you said, “Now here is the kicker john 5 son of man voice goes back in time”.

    You said, “mathew 16 jesus christ claims to be the son of man.‎” and he is, but he is also the Son of God (Matthew 17:5).

    I am not sure if I am speaking with someone that believes Jesus is the only Son born of God, our Lord, and Savior, or someone that does not know Jesus.

    If you do not know Jesus, then you cannot understand much about him (1 Cor 2:14).

    What God says is easily verifiable, because it is written in the Bible, but one has to have the Holy Spirit to explain it.
