(Jul. 13, 2022) — Church and State are inextricably intertwined – if one falls, the other will fall.  We have been a great nation because we have been a Christian nation that acknowledges our God-given unalienable rights and responsibilities as confirmed by our founding documents.  A nation’s predominant religion, or lack of one, determines its political and economic systems.  This is not debatable.

 “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”  John Adams

Our unalienable rights come from God through His Natural Law. We also have corresponding God-given responsibilities to administer those rights. Exercising those rights is ensured by our heeding those responsibilities. Those who are unconcerned about God, or who deny Him, simply cannot be trusted to administer those rights and responsibilities. They eventually destroy societies because they separate God (morality) from state (performance). Most are currently known as Gamaliels, Sojourners, Pharisees, jihadis, liberals, socialists, progressives, and Marxist and anarchist communists. History calls them pagans. They must never be elected to any office, or given any other power.

Our freedom also depends on us doing good works AND physically fighting evil.  Ignoring those duties will destroy our nation, deprave us, enslave us, and kill us, as we are witnessing.

Separating Church (Christian morality) from State (the behavior of government employees) is an act of war against us.  Christianity is being attacked throughout government and society. This must be stopped. Our social collapse is mainly due to attacks on our moral foundation.  Totalitarian psychopaths cannot rule in a Christian nation, so they naturally try to subvert the Christianity that is preventing them from destroying our Constitutional Republic, Western civilization, Christendom, and billions of lives.

Tragically, most pastors and priests have not fought evil in society and government.  Many are girly men of average intelligence and below average scholarship parroting seminary and denominational talking points, and contributing to Christianity’s dilution, poisoning, and demise.  They have failed their sacred duty to physically lead opposition to our nation’s breakneck Babylonizing. They intend the natural and probable genocidal consequences of their dastardly cowardice and inaction.  They are His — and our — enemies.

If your pastor or priest focuses on loving everyone and everything, tithing, eunuch exegesis and hermeneutics, and cutesy pacifist feel good sermons, but avoids courageous moral teachings on sin and repentance, and won’t recognize and oppose current evils, then rebuke him.  Fire him if he’s unrepentant, or change churches if he owns and runs it as a family business, or start a home church and tithe to it.  It’s abomination, apostasy, and suicide to submit to a coward’s authority —  it’s also a nation-killer.  “…[I]t is imperative that the entire Catholic community in the United States come to realize the grave threats to the Church’s public moral witness presented by a radical secularism which finds increasing expression in the political and cultural spheres,” said Pope Benedict XVI addressing US bishops on January, 27, 2012.

On the other hand, America’s pastors and priests could save their own people if they mobilized their congregations and parishes to fight evil.  So far they haven’t, so we’re working around them.  In 1776, Peter Muhlenberg delivered a sermon, concluding, “There is a time for all things, a time to preach and a time to pray, but those times have passed away. There is a time to fight, and that time has now come.” He removed his black clerical robe that covered his Colonel’s uniform, and set out to successfully command the 8th Virginia Regiment of the Continental Army.  This Black Robe Regiment provided the primary impetus for our Declaration of Independence.  That Regiment must rapidly form again.

“Brethren, our preaching will bear its legitimate fruits. If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree. If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the Church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it. Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation.”  Charles G. Finney, Power From On High, Chapter 11 (c. 1871-1874)

The choice is simple:  Good or evil.  Don’t let anyone complicate it for you.  You know all you need to know to do what you must do.  Jesus told His apostles in Luke 22:36, “…he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.”  They did, and Simon Peter used his.  Saddle up.
