Man, the Male Leadership Role as Directed by God - Part 17
At times the simplest of subjects needs some background information. As we have found, though, outside of the plan of salvation, there are few "simple" subjects in the Bible. To make blanket statements would be a mistake. And to ignore supposed "rabbit trails" would be equally an error.
As we explore the Word, we will continue, without apology, to expand the subject parameters to bring about an understanding of the subject by our writing or by your personal study caused by the writing.
Be assured, we will probably not have a 100% agreement on the vast majority of Biblical subjects, but this is a good thing. It shows the reader is not just "accepting" but studying on their own. That is what brings about a proper Bible study.
A few Hubs back, we were about to address "legislation" as it affects the leadership role of man, as well as the directives of the Bible. But we took a side road for a couple pages in order to see the character of the people who design and support legislation which does not agree with the Word of God. Then we looked at some needed definitions before we ready to comment on legislation.
So we pick up here with this thought and a little modern day libertine history. It seems two ethnic groups were the "lab-rats" of the libertine in our most recent history. They were utilized to see just exactly what the libertine could promote and how to do it in a manner that could be sold and accepted to the majority of mankind. And it was done by legislation. The future effects of legislation on the believing Christian's every day life can be seen in the history of the people targeted in the various programs here addressed.
Again, the libertine has found that the man will accept minor changes to almost anything as long as it is a bit at a time and promoted as being good for mankind as a whole. The removal of the authority of the male in directing his family remains our thought. Legislation will not point directly at this, but as a subliminal or indirect or future target. An acceptable groundwork must first be laid before the direct assault begins.
The American legislative process is in full gear, against the believer and the things of God, though quietly hidden in the verbage. Today, many congressional bills are present as "benefits." But, though proposed as benefits to all Americans, they are geared to removing both personal freedoms and portions of the Bible from legitimacy of doctrine and action. They are but a subterfuge and are the works of evil.
The "hate crimes issue" which is supposed to support a protection of ones freedom in many areas, is designed to promote that which is "abominable" to God, Leviticus 20:13. Though the overall concept is proper, the legislation is geared to foist the propriety of "unnatural actions" on the American people, Romans 1:26-27. The reality is, no new legislation is needed. Crime does not have an ethnic face in America.
Stem cell research, the killing of the innocent for the good of the "haves." The argument presented here is that which comes from this research may benefit the overall populace. But the underlying issue is eugenics (master race) and dysgenics (disallow the disadvantaged). God has spoken on this, "Though shalt not kill," Exodus 20:13.
Last, but only for our study as the list goes on and on, is "assisted suicide." Though not yet recognized as such, the courts are now turning a knowing-eye the other way. This is, of course, a personal issue, and a rather hotly contested one at that. But let’s look down the road on this one.
Politicians in America are fond of citing the works of European countries as a reason to institute various programs. We should note that Israel and Holland now have a law allowing doctors to perform euthanasia.
On April 10, 2001, a Dutch law permitting both euthanasia and assisted suicide was approved. That law which went to effect on April 1, 2002, is summarized below: Out-take from online Patient Rights Council, Steubenville, OH, newsletter.
Don't think these European programs will not spawn other programs. You need only read or listen to the daily news. Europe, that is the United Nations, is now our guardian mentor.
Evil has not bounds. We need only look at the "Action T-4" project of Nazi Germany (genocide of all mentally incompetent) if there is doubt that these programs, above, could not be "widened" to include anything that was found to be "useless" to modern society. Germany is now the financial power of Europe.
Next is the Planned Parent programs and the grandmother of it all could be Margaret Sanger, American born, and a nurse herself. One might say, Sanger did not support certain parts of the T-4 project, but there leaves little doubt that her position and writings were the foundation for it, a project of eugenics. And this corruption of evil by these folks is a reflection of the corruption of scripture by the libertine today.
When evil can subjugate a minute’ portion of the Bible, the rest the Word will be attacked, Galatians 5:1-9:
(1) Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. (2) Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. (3) For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. (4) Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. (5) For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. (6) For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. (7) Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? (8) This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. (9) A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
"A little," but "acceptable" change in God’s word opens the areas of marriage, procreation, perverted sex, increased attitude of "love," reduced attitude toward punishment and a myriad of other "if it feels good" positions. This will ultimately reduce the presence, though not the power, of God and the Bible in the lives of all people as well as the believers. Mankind is then free to do as they are led to do "by the spirit." The question is "What spirit?" The spirit of the libertine, the personification of the other nature of man, the evil nature, Romans 7:23.
