POLITICAL POWER OF BABEL
By: Al Cronkrite
If law does not reflect the fact that God is the Lord and
Sovereign, it will reveal the premise that man and the state are gods. No more dangerous gods have ever been affirmed by
man. --- R. J. Rushdoony
is a foreign religion to the majority of those who claim the name. We tend to think
of ourselves as the center of reality and as arbiters of our beliefs and our conduct.
The Christian Church supports this heresy. In spite of the Bibles unswerving
record of God choosing His servants, Christian leaders urge the heathen to make a
decision for Christ. When the creature decides to affirm the Creator the
creature becomes the sovereign - a blatant form of humanism. Hundreds of thousands
of Christians have allowed this heresy to invade their beliefs and, as a result, have
never achieved a proper relationship to Christ.
The Triune God is
the center of the Universe and we are His servants. We are chosen by God before we
voiced our allegiance and as one of Gods chosen people our duty is to obey His Law
and seek to bring the creation under it.
With the Latin
mantra Lex Rex (The law is king) the Protestant Reformation was partially successful in
upending the Tower of Babel constructed by the divine right of kings. Protestant
Christianity brought the world its first taste of real freedom, order, and
Though it was
tainted by Arminianism and the Enlightenment colonial America set in place many of
Gods legal principles and some of todays fast fading elderly generation can
remember the wonderful freedom it produced. During the 1930s mothers did not worry
about their children. Doors were not locked and children ran through the
neighborhood without fear. It was a wonderful almost utopian time that now
Gods Law offers nations the closest thing to Libertarianism that humans can attain.
Liberal, Conservative, or anarchic Libertarian governments cannot sustain freedom
and justice. The sinful nature of man will always overcome freedom and righteousness
with centralization and evil. Without the immutable yardstick of Gods Law man will
be unduly restricted.
Christianity (Arminianism) is cultic and like all cults it is difficult to bring followers
to righteousness. True Christianity was bequeathed to us by the Reformation
and for the cultic Christian to return is like accomplishing a difficult passage on a
piano or understanding a complex mathematical problem; it is exhausting hard work that
must be continued until the blessed truth lights up the mind and one understands what God
intends for His chosen people.
in their largest realm are not much different than their unbelieving neighbors.
Non-Christians often believe in a god and pray but they do not pray to the God of the
Bible their prayers are to another deity or a god of their own making Cultic
Christians are no different;; they pick and choose what parts of Gods Word they will
believe and obey thereby constructing their own god; they do not worship the God of the
Christians will tell you that they chose to accept Christ as their personal Savior and are
in the process of trying to please him by improving their relationship with Him.
They live in a spiritual quandary not unlike the war on terror; their behavior
is evil and their objective is obscure.
We treat the King
of the world as if He is our next door neighbor. We ignore His nature which is
described in stark detail in the Books of the Old Testament and instead of approaching Him
with awe, terror, and a subservient spirit, by regaling Him with requests we make Him our
servant rather than us His. We are made in the image of God but Jesus, our Savior,
is the ruler and judge of the world. We are His servants and until we begin to
understand that we are to obey His Commandments we are missing the nature of the

Gods Law is no longer in vogue and human opinion rules, opinion enforced by power

often comes in the form of tyranny. Christians and their churches have failed to
honor and obey the ruler of the world and we are being punished by the specter of a
burgeoning police state. Had we been obedient Christians and used His Word and His
Law against the forces of evil we would not be in this dire state. The Christian Church
has forgotten its mission to teach and define obedience, to confront and resist sin, both
personal and public, and to support and define truth, righteousness, and justice.
president of J. C. Penney, Ron Johnson, made an effort to return honesty to the Department
Store business; he failed miserably because the American public prefers to be
flimflammed into thinking they are getting a bargain. Rushdoony writes, A lie
moves a man from the real world into a world of fiction, and his life begins to rest on
falsity. Truth gives us freedom in the real world God has made. We are to live
all our life in God and therefore in truth. Because a lie moves men and nations from
the free world into fiction and slavery, men and nations must require a true witness or
else theirs is a course of disaster and ruin.
have allowed lying, cheating, theft, and immorality to become rampant in our nation.
We are propagandized by our media, lied to by our retail stores, cheated by our
merchants, filled with blatant prevarications by our elected representatives, and deceived
by our churches. Is it any wonder that our nation and our individual citizens are
hopelessly in debt, that we have become a puppet to hidden powers that are trashing our
country to achieve world domination.
And where do our
citizens go for help in this dire emergency? Like dumb oxen they go to the
major source of the problem, the United States Government. Over and over again like
imbeciles they seek the same failed solution. When will we realize the only remedy
to our dilemma is the God of the Bible? How long will it take us to repent and to
seek His blessing? God still runs this world and He is angry with the United States
Many of our
citizens have become so addicted to the sensual pleasures of living a leisurely life
devoid of worry that they refuse to understand what is happening all around them.
Faced with factual information they will dismiss it without consideration. When the
truth is ignored by a major portion of society there is no way to stop the decline of our
civilization. Truth is essential to freedom!
The United States
Government is a modern day Tower of Babel that is not only unable to save America but is
itself the source of our problem. A nation cannot remain free without an
anchor. The Constitution was supposed to maintain our freedom but it has been
discarded and replaced by presidential fiat.
No Constitution is
of any worth when the people it is designed to govern become dishonest and immoral.
The Constitution was crafted to govern a Law abiding, Christian people and we no longer
have such a populace. Christians and the leaders of their deceitful churches must
shoulder the responsibility for this social deterioration.
Joseph C. Morecraft
writes, The entire community has a responsibility when crimes are committed or
injustice done. A community cannot be indifferent to any sin, crime or injustice in
its midst, or else it bears the guilt as well as the offender and is under judgment.
When a community shuts its eyes to any evil in its midst and refuses to deal with
it justly and in accordance with Gods law, then the whole community is under
The answer to our
problem lies in God and our relationship to Him and nowhere else!
