What a bunch of sissies. They tick me off more than Obama and his cadre of communists. I only wish that the “men of the cloth” loved their God as much as Obama and his acolytes love theirs.
Government is their god and you have got to hand it to them, they are not ashamed to fight for their beliefs. In the face of unprecedented opposition from those they have sworn an oath to serve, they pushed forward with what they told us they were going to do.
Like sheep led to the slaughter the Tea Party folks have trudged up the hill in villages and hamlets all around this nation begging their slave masters for relief from the tyranny of oppression masquerading as government in America.
As Patrick Henry so aptly spoke 235 years ago this week “This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.”
The Christian-leadership void is cavernous. As we sat before our TV’s and watched government on the auction block being sold to the highest bidder, desperate mom’s and dad’s doubling as grandma’s and grandpa’s, took to the streets prophetically living out Proverbs 29:2 “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” The sense of frustration and the mourning of the sheep were palpable as government of, by, and for the people was perishing from the earth. Make no mistake about it, the sheep are about to be butchered.
I don’t blame the government-lovers in Washington. They are merely living out their faith. You have to admire their tenacity and resolve. Many laid their jobs on the line for the secular-god they serve. My experience tells me that more often than not the most committed team is the one who wins.
I have had the opportunity to be part of many Tea Party events and no matter where I travel; the events all seem to share one thing in common. Rarely, if ever, do you come across a pastor. While God’s sheep are being herded into another man’s barn, the shepherd’s are MIA. They are an embarrassment to the God the claim to serve. Instead of a Roman collar, it would be more appropriate if they were to don a dog collar. That would make it so much easier to keep them on their government-leash.
God’s team is quarterbacked by a bunch of cowards. At a time when we need bulldogs our pulpits are full of dumb dogs. For some reason they have become convinced that surrendering to evil is biblical…that Jesus is glorified when the salt loses his savor…that being a peacekeeper is more noble than being a peace MAKER.
They are traitors to America, to the families they lead, and to the God they claim to serve. “Greater love has no man than this than he would lay down his life for his friends…” these cowards would be the first one to lead the sheep on the bus to Auschwitz in some misquided attempt to honor God by obeying the liberty-destroying authorities. “May I pray, please, your Honor?”
Here’s what they don’t get. The evil-one is doing everything he can to silence the mouth of God. Those of us who carry the name of Christ are his ambassadors and our job is to carry His Word into hostile territory. If they silence the mouth of God’s people they in essence silence the mouth of God. God works through His people, but God’s generals are instructing their flocks to salute Satan rather than oppose him.
This nation was birthed in rebellion. Thomas Jefferson stated “resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.” Has their ever been a more tyrannical time in America than what we saw this last weekend? Did your Pastor suggest you “sell your cloak and buy a sword?” Or did he convince you to open the curtains and look for the eastern sky to split because “God has not appointed us unto wrath?” Did he call those in Washington lawbreakers or did he suggest you would somehow be most holy if you honored Caesar’s request to bend over and take it because, after all, the powers are “ordained of God.” Rubbish!
There are going to be a lot of “pastors” scrambling when they stand before a jealous God and give account for their unwillingness to “earnestly contend for the faith” in obedience to His command to “occupy until I return.” They love to talk about “financial stewardship”…well how about “cultural stewardship?” These cowards honor the “wicked who beareth rule” when they should have been “testifying to the Truth.”
Christianity was birthed in rebellion as well. Nearly all of the heroes of the Bible are heroes because they resisted un-godly authority. (Credit to Dr. Brook Stockton for the following.) Ask your pastor:
it right for Joseph to disobey his boss’s wife (Gen. 39)? Was it
right for Moses’ parents to disobey the civil authority over them
and not kill their baby (Ex. 1)? Was it right for the Hebrew midwives
to disobey the Egyptian government and save the babies (Ex.1)?
Was it right for Rahab to disobey the king of Jericho (Joshua 2)? Was it right for Ruth to disobey her mother-in-law (Ruth 1)? Was it right for the judges in the Book of Judges to take up the sword, organize an army, and overthrow wicked governments?
Was it right for Sampson to disobey the Philistine government officials (Judges 16)? Was it right for David to disobey his older brothers and not go home as ordered (1 Samuel 17)? Was it right for Jonathan to disobey his Father and not deliver David to Saul (I Samuel 20)? Was it right for David not to surrender himself to the will of the king who wanted him dead and destroyed (1 Samuel 19-30). Was it right for the younger prophet to disobey the older prophet (I Kings 13)?
Was it right for Naboth to refuse the offer of King Ahab to purchase his property (I Kings 21)? Was it right for Elijah not to obey the summons of a king Ahaziah (2 Kings 1)? Was it right for Elisha to disobey Elijah and not “Stay here” (2 Kings 2)?
Was it right for the Israel to submit to her idolatrous kings (2 Kings 17)? Wasn’t Israel sent into captivity because they obeyed their idolatrous kings (2 Kings 17)? Wasn’t Israel chided by God for obeying the laws of King Omri (Micah 6:16)? Was it right for Jehoiada the priest to resist the de facto queen and over throw her rule (2 Kings 11?)
Was it right for the three Hebrews to remain standing after the king’s order to bow (Daniel 3)? Was it right for Daniel to pray after an executive order forbidding prayer to any God but the king (Daniel 6)? Was it right for Habakkuk and Zechariah to encourage Israel to disobey the Persian king and revive the building of the temple after they were ordered to stop (Ezra 4 & 5)?
Was it right for Peter to keep on preaching Christ after Israel’s government ordered him to stop preaching (Acts 5)? Was it right for Martin Luther to disobey the Pope (15th Century)? Was John Huss wrong for resisting the hierarchy of the Catholic Church (14th Century)? Was it right for John Bunyan to refuse to take a government license to preach the gospel—something that cost him years in prison (16th Century)?
Was it right for the Pilgrims not to submit to the King of England (1620)? Was it right for John Hancock, George Washington, and Patrick Henry to declare independence from rebellious King George because of taxation and other reasons (Declaration of Independence)?
Was it right for the Germans at the concentration camps to obey their wicked, elected officials and kill Jews? Was it right for the French underground to disobey the German authorities and to smuggle Jews out of France?
Was it right for General Robert E. Lee to teach his slaves how to read and write so they could earn a living upon their release when the laws of Virginia forbid him to do so? Was it right for General Robert E. Lee to resist the federal forces marching into Virginia, to take up arms, and resist the order of President Lincoln?
Was it right for Bostonians to trespass on private property and to dump tea in the Boston Harbor to protest a tea tax? Should Christians in the 1850s have obeyed the Fugitive Slave Laws and sent runaway slaves back to their owners?
Should Rosa Parks should have obeyed the local segregation ordinances and given up her bus seat to that white man? Was it right for Judge Moore to disobey an order from the federal judiciary and refuse to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from an Alabama Court Room?
Is it wrong to disobey those who disobey the Constitution? According to the “Prissy Pastors” it is. They are worse than Peter. Their cowardly obedience to evil rulers spits on the graves of those who “gave their last full measure of devotion” that “that this nation might live.”
They don’t even have the courage to stand in their pulpit and endorse a candidate because Caesar tells them to “zip it.” I say it is time to stop obeying Caesar. Respect is something you earn, not an endowment. No King but Jesus!

They are poison this bunch of peace-puking puppets…selling out their birthright for a pot of porridge. At a time when we need stallions our pulpits are full of geldings.
