Who Is Responsible For Mr. George Floyd’s Death?

BY Herschel Smith
6 days ago

From a reader, this uneducated pastor.

The white pastor of a large Christian church in Pennsylvania is taking personal blame for “the situation” leading to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and says all white churches are collectively to blame.

“The situation we find ourselves in is my fault, and it is a gospel issue, with the credibility of the gospel on the line,” said Bob Myers, pastor of Covenant Church in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.

In his blog post titled, “Is It My Fault?,” Myers cites white privilege among American Christians as a main factor leading to the death of Floyd, who is black. The event has sparked riots and protests in major cities across the United States this weekend.

Now that your mind has been poisoned with stupidity, here is the antidote from R. J. Rushdoony, “Institutes of Biblical Law.”

” … the Biblical doctrine is, as Deuteronomy 24:16 makes clear, one of individual responsibility … guilt cannot be shifted to others or passed on to the people around a man.  Guilt is non-transferable; a disposition or nature can be inherited, but not guilt.”

Mr. Floyd is dead as a result of something, presumably what the cop did to him.  It is therefore not my fault or your fault or the fault of a collective, whomever that might be in your mind.  The ignorant pastor should go back to seminary.

Religious Useful Idiots Allied With The Almighty State

David Codrea.

This is the secular fundamental transformation/cultural terraforming of America that Democrats are counting on for votes and Chamber of Commerce Republicans for cheap labor. It’s also, not coincidentally, the greatest threat to continued legal recognition of the right to keep and bear arms, something none of our state and national “gun rights leaders” has been willing to acknowledge, let alone champion, lest the “national socialists” behind it all smear them as “haters,” too. As if they don’t already.

Those who hold religion in contempt have always been more than happy to exploit religious useful idiots if it advances their agenda. At some point, when they’re no longer needed, useful idiots are then “fundamentally transformed” into useless eaters, right before they’re further “fundamentally transformed” into fertilizer.

Serving man rather than God.  It goes on until they are judged, and that judgment certainly comes in eternity.  More often than not, it occurs in time as well, and that judgment makes no differentiation between the perpetrators and the victims.

Everyone suffers in the wake of God’s corporate judgment on nations.

We’re there.  Seventy million babies.  Legalized theft of family wealth.  Force indoctrination in schools of communist indoctrination.  Foreign wars to enrich bankers and corporations.  Readers can add to the list.

The church is all to blame for not being salt and light in the world, for preaching false doctrine, and for pretending that God doesn’t punish wickedness.

That all has to do with gun control how, you ask?  You didn’t really have to ask.

The Desire To Control Others Is The Signal Pathology Of The Wicked

American Thinker has related thoughts.

At the Jacobin, an American socialist, Marxist quarterly based in New York, Ben Burgis emphasizes that

Progressives and democratic socialists need to make the case that there’s a third alternative to business-as-usual centrists running the states Trump wants to ‘liberate’ and the cynical demagogues who want to feed low-income workers to the capitalist death machine by prematurely ending the lockouts

[ … ]

The coronavirus has cleared the field for communists. It is an opportune moment for the left in general, but above all, for those who already wield a certain amount of power and want to perpetuate themselves and implant their totalitarian paradise once and for all.

There is no need to wonder about these things.  Governors are taking power to themselves nowhere granted by any state or the federal constitution; rulers unilaterally declare that worshipers cannot gather; stores are shut down, businesses are closed, some forever; cops, working on taxpayer monies, take the time to enter private property without a warrant to harass and lecture people on allowing their children to play with other children; cops arrest surfers, hikers and campers who have paid for the public land they’re on with taxpayer dollars; the elderly are jailed in their facilities to perish, when the safest thing they could have done with them would have been to send them home, or else roll them out into the sun, taken them for a walk, and given them Vitamins C/D3; workers everywhere are told to wear masks so that they re-breath their own effluent and cause the mask itself to be a contaminant trap on both inside and outside surfaces, contributing to their own retrovirus loading because they can’t properly expel their own air; the FedGov prints money like monopoly paper; and communists everywhere want to see the economy fail.

This is all designed to break the bonds of dependency and love between families and church, cause feelings of isolation, and create dependency on the government.  At its root, it is the wicked desire to control other people.  The tools of control are loneliness, poverty and isolation.  Community becomes government.

R.J. Rushdoony said this.

The mainstream of Western civilization is thus apparent, the desire to control and change others as the essence of true power.  This lust for power, the pathology of all fallen men, is common to cultures all over the world.  It is an expression of man’s original sin, his desire to be as God (“The Death of Meaning”).

Man’s attempt to supplant himself upon the throne of the universe never ends well.

Federal Judge Blocks NC Governor’s Restrictions On Religious Services

BY Herschel Smith
2 weeks, 6 days ago

Slapped Roy Cooper around like the punk he is.

A federal judge’s order Saturday allows North Carolina religious leaders to open their doors to their congregations, in spite of the governor’s warning that they risk spreading coronavirus.

Gov. Roy Cooper said he wouldn’t appeal the ruling blocking his restrictions on indoor religious services.

Saturday’s order pointed out that while only up to 10 people are allowed inside for religious services under Cooper’s stay-at-home order, that same standard doesn’t apply to other entities, such as businesses that are limited to 50% capacity, and funeral services, which allow up to 50 people.

“The record, at this admittedly early stage of the case, reveals that the Governor appears to trust citizens to perform non-religious activities indoors (such as shopping or working or selling merchandise) but does not trust them to do the same when they worship together indoors,” states Judge James C. Dever III’s ruling in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina Eastern Division.

The temporary order comes after two Baptist churches, a minister and a Christian revival group filing a lawsuit against the Democratic governor Thursday, saying his executive order violates their First Amendment freedom of religion and other constitutional rights, The News & Observer reported.

A hearing is scheduled May 29 on whether the order will become permanent.

Until that time, the judge’s order prevents Cooper from taking enforcement actions against religious worshipers, but also states they should observe recommendations for social distancing and reduce transmission of the virus when possible.

“The court trusts worshipers and their leaders to look after one another and society while exercising their free exercise rights just as they and their fellow citizens (whether religious or not) do when engaged in non-religious activities,” Dever’s order states.

I hope he sees fit to make it a permanent injunction.  Meanwhile, I suspect that Cooper isn’t challenging this because he knows he’ll lose.

Communion Is Not Part Of “Core Worship”

BY Herschel Smith

PJM.

… in Knox County, Tenn., where the health department just announced that while churches may reopen on May 1, the Lord’s Supper is forbidden.

The order was announced by Knox County Health Department Regional Hospital Coordinator Charity Menefee, who announced that Communion is not part of “core worship.”

“The Community Strategy for Phased Reopening is complementary to Governor Lee’s ‘Tennessee Pledge: Reopening Tennessee Responsibly’ framework and the White House’s ‘Opening Up America Again’ guidance,” the edict explains. “Local government has been empowered to create strategies relevant to the unique needs of the community.”

“If there are differences between the plans, the community should follow this local plan,” the document explains. The order lists the rules for reopening a wide variety of businesses including restaurants, spas, tattoo parlors, and museums. It also allows churches to hold services, provided they follow the county’s stringent guidelines that include social distancing, sanitizing surfaces between services, treating every partitioner “as if they are potentially dangerous,” and a requirement that everyone in attendance at Knox County churches wear a mask—unlike stores and restaurants, where employes and patrons are only required to wear a mask when social distancing cannot be maintained.

Meanwhile, the Lord of the universe is still saying this even today: “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

These words will live long after these usurpers, posers, impostors, fakes and tyrants are in hell.

Minneapolis: Muslim call to prayer blasted over loudspeakers 5 times a day in U.S. first

News from Minnesota.

The Muslim call to prayer, known as the adhan, will echo from loudspeakers through parts of Minneapolis five times per day for the entirety of Ramadan in what is believed the be the first time the Islamic call has been publicly broadcast in a major U.S. city.

[ … ]

The city granted a noise permit for the broadcasts.

Of course they did.  In New York they’ve sided with the Muslims.

“NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio threatened to permanently close churches, but he’s giving Muslims half a million meals for Ramadan,” by Phil Shiver, The Blaze, April 24, 2020:

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Thursday that the city will take steps to provide for its Muslim community amid the coronavirus by distributing “over half a million meals” during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The 500,000 Halal meals will be distributed at 32 Department of Education buildings and other community organizations during Ramadan, Bloomberg News reported. Ramadan began Thursday evening and will end the evening of May 23.

“One of Ramadan’s most noble callings is to feed the hungry,” de Blasio said Thursday during a press briefing. “To remember to be there for those in need. And that is now harder than ever now that people can’t go to their mosques.”

“We all wish that the celebrations of Easter and Passover could have been so different,” de Blasio said during the briefing.

No you don’t.  This is all going as planned.

Concerning The Genocide Of The Nigerian Christians

BY Herschel Smith
1 month, 2 weeks ago

Raymond Ibrahim writing at PJM.

Not only is Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari behind what several international observers are calling a “genocide” of Christians in his nation—but Barack Hussein Obama played a major role in the Muslim president’s rise to power: these two interconnected accusations are increasingly being made—not by “xenophobic” Americans but Nigerians themselves, including several leaders and officials.

Most recently, Femi Fani-Kayode, Nigeria’s former minister of culture and tourism, wrote in a Facebook post:

“What Obama, John Kerry and Hilary Clinton did to Nigeria by funding and supporting Buhari in the 2015 presidential election and helping Boko Haram in 2014/2015 was sheer wickedness and the blood of all those killed by the Buhari administration, his Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram over the last 5 years are on their hands.”

Kerry’s and Clinton’s appeasement of Boko Haram—an Islamic terror organization notorious for massacring, enslaving, and raping Christians, and bombing and burning their churches—is apparently what connects them to this “sheer wickedness.”

For example, after a Nigerian military offensive killed 30 Boko Haram terrorists in 2013, then secretary of state Kerry “issued a strongly worded statement” to Buhari’s predecessor, President Goodluck Jonathan (2010-2015), a Christian.  In it, Kerry warned Jonathan that “We are … deeply concerned by credible allegations that Nigerian security forces are committing gross human rights violations” against the terrorists.

Similarly, during her entire tenure as secretary of state, Clinton repeatedly refused to designate Boko Haram as a foreign terrorist organization, despite nonstop pressure from lawmakers, human rights activists, and lobbyists—not to mention Boko Haram’s countless atrocities against Nigerian Christians.

“Those of you that still love the evil called Barack Obama,” Fani-Kayode added in his post, “should listen to this short clip and tell me if you still do.”  He was referring to a recent Al Jazeera video interview of Eeben Barlow, a former lieutenant-colonel of the South African Defence Force and chairman of a private military company hired in 2015 by Jonathan, when still president, to help defeat Boko Haram.

“In one month,” Barlow said in the interview, “we took back terrain larger than Belgium from Boko Haram. We were not allowed to finish because it came at a time when governments were in the process of changing,” he said in reference to Nigeria’s 2015 presidential elections.  “The incoming president, President Buhari, was heavily supported by a foreign government, and one of the first missions [of Buhari] was to terminate our contract.”

On being asked if he could name the “foreign government,” the former lieutenant-colonel said, “Yes, we were told it was the United States, and they had actually funded President Buhari’s campaign, and the campaign manager for President Buhari came from the US.

I think it’s fairly well established by now that Obama hated Christians.  He and his henchmen bear a huge degree of responsibility for raped little girls and dead Christians in Nigeria.

However, I’m going to say something a wee bit more controversial now.  So do the Nigerian Christians.  Christians should not, and must not, look to the state for redemption or safety.

God gave men the responsibility and duty to defend the little ones.  No one else can do it, and no one else has been told to engage in such protection (Romans 13 is an exception to what I’m saying, but that is a normative statement, a statement of God’s expectations for the state, not of His boundaries for His followers, or in other words, He raises the bar for the state, not lowers it for citizens of a state).

Nigerian Christians should have armed and gone to war with the Muslim terrorists in Nigeria until every last one of them was dead.  Nothing else will do when your family is under threat.  Until Christians jettison this notion of Jesus as the Bohemian, peacenik, flower child pacifist, they will continue to be run over, abused, raped, tortured and slaughtered.

And the frustrating thing is that it’s all so unnecessary and based on false teaching.

The Salt Lake Tribune Whines About Guns

BY Herschel Smith

David Codrea.

“People openly carried guns, even assault rifles, to the recent gun rally at the Capitol,” a Friday opinion piece titled “Gun Rally Smacked of Fascism” in The Salt Lake Tribune whines. “The reason for brandishing guns is hard to fathom.”

If they were actually brandishing them, it would be. Except Utah criminal code is quite clear that:

“‘Threatening manner’ does not include: the possession of a dangerous weapon, whether visible or concealed, without additional behavior which is threatening…”

Not only does Utah suffer from the progs who have relocated there to the large cities such as Salt Lake, but you need to remember that both the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the LDS church are viscerally and irrationally opposed to gun rights.  Utah isn’t as friendly a state for gun owners as you might think they would be because of the strength of the LDS.

Oh, both of those groups allow for LEOs to have weapons, but as for people who aren’t “the only ones,” they are deeply opposed to firearms ownership or use.  I recall asking an LDS friend once about guns in his church and what would happen if an armed intruder came in and started shooting families.

His response centered around off-duty LEOs who were members of the congregation.  No one else carries.  The church leadership is deeply opposed to it.  I’ve also had this conversation with a JW, insofar as it was possible.  He was much more emotional about it, but in line with his church’s beliefs, which means deeply opposed.

I pity the gun owners in Utah, but their pleas might fall on deaf ears, not just with the pols, but with most of the people too, at least as many who identify as LDS.

Guns And Fake Jesus Lovers

BY Herschel Smith
5 months ago

Buddy Gharring.

I’ve heard a few arguments from people over the years that Jesus was in favor of violence, but, given a little context and in light of the bulk of Jesus teaching and action, they all seem to fall short.

“Jesus made a whip and flipped over tables in the Temple.” Yes, but that whip comment is right by the driving oxen and sheep out of the temple comment, maybe the two were related? Besides, the reasoning Jesus gives for His actions is not in any way condoning violence, rather seeking justice for the outsider: “My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations, but you have made it a den of robbers.”

What about when Jesus said, “I have not come to bring peace, but a sword”? Yes, He did say that. Matthew 10 starts with Jesus calling Talmudin (commonly translated Disciples) to imitate Him, live with him, learn through observation, and then sends them out to do the same work He has been doing all over the region. But before sending them off, he launches into a long speech about how they will be persecuted or mistreated. “They call me Beelzebub, what do you think they will call you?”

So yes, He did say that, but He wasn’t calling His disciples to use swords. He was giving them a lengthy pep-talk about the type of reception their message was going to get from people. At that moment, He was specifically talking about families being turned against each other. Do you suppose “Daughter-in-law against Mother-in-Law” was a call to bloody violence? Is that what he meant by bringing a sword?

“But Jesus told the Disciples to sell their cloak and buy a sword during the last supper.” Yes, indeed. And again, let’s remember the context. First, let’s pick up in Luke 22, following right after that buy a sword comment:

“’For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: “And he was numbered with the transgressors.” For what is written about me has its fulfillment.’ And they said, ‘Look, Lord, here are two swords.’ And he said to them, ‘It is enough.’”

Between Jesus’ comment about being numbered with transgressors and His replying that two swords are just fine for the 12+ party they had, I’d say condoning violence wasn’t the point. But in case you have any doubt, remember that later this night when Peter tries to defend Jesus with this sword they are all talking about, Jesus stops him, says basically “that’s not the way we do things,” and heals the soldier Peter attacked. This is the very same night in question. If He literally wanted them to buy swords (it seems pretty clear He didn’t) He definitely didn’t want those swords used on other people.

And that’s kind of the point, isn’t it? I know it is possible to own a gun that will never be used to harm a person. I know many people who own guns and do everything they can to ensure that no person would ever be harmed by those guns. But I have also met many, many people who have guns as a measure of protection against other human beings, and many of them also claim to be followers of Jesus.

Notice the Scripture twisting?  Jesus didn’t drive out the oxen and sheep from the temple.  He drove out the money changers.  The “pastor” does everything in his power to claim that the Holy writ doesn’t really say what it says.

We’ve dealt with this before many times.  By telling His disciples to buy swords, he is not only telling them to ensure their self defense, but also to directly disobey the magistrate.  Owning and bear arms of any kind, including knives and swords, was strictly forbidden.  Jesus was telling His disciples to ignore unbiblical laws.

As for his notion that one who has weapons needs to ensure that they are never used to harm another man, he of course rolls in criminals intent on rape, kidnapping and murder of women and children.  This isn’t by accident.  He intends to do that under the rubric of “turning the other cheek.”

So it would be redundant to rehearse this ground again, but we’ll do it for the sake of completeness.

God has laid the expectations at the feet of heads of families that they protect, provide for and defend their families and protect and defend their countries.  Little ones cannot do so, and rely solely on those who bore them.  God no more loves the willing neglect of their safety than He loves child abuse.  He no more appreciates the willingness to ignore the sanctity of our own lives than He approves of the abuse of our own bodies and souls.  God hasn’t called us to save the society by sacrificing our children or ourselves to robbers, home invaders, rapists or murderers. Self defense – and defense of the little ones – goes well beyond a right.  It is a duty based on the idea that man is made in God’s image.  It is His expectation that we do the utmost to preserve and defend ourselves when in danger, for it is He who is sovereign and who gives life, and He doesn’t expect us to be dismissive or cavalier about its loss.

If you believe that it is your Christian duty to allow your children to be harmed by evil-doers (and you actually allow it to happen) because you think Christ was a pacifist, you are no better than a child abuser or pedophile.

God demands violence as a response to threats on our person because of the fact that man is created in God’s image and life is to be preserved.  It is our solemn duty.

I am afraid there have been too many centuries of bad teaching endured by the church, but it makes sense to keep trying.  As I’ve explained before, the simplest and most compelling case for self defense lies in the decalogue.  Thou shall not murder means thou shall protect life.

If you’re willing to sacrifice the safety and health of your wife or children to the evils of abuse, kidnapping, sexual predation or death, God isn’t impressed with your fake morality.  Capable of stopping it and choosing not to, you’re no better than a child molester, and I wouldn’t allow you even to be around my grandchildren.

Indeed, all gun control is wicked.  The Bible does contain a few direct references to weapons control. There were many times throughout Israel’s history that it rebelled against God (in fact, it happened all the time). To mock His people back into submission to His Law, the Lord would often use wicked neighbors to punish Israel’s rebellion. Most notable were the Philistines and the Babylonians. 1 Samuel 13:19-22 relates the story: “Not a blacksmith could be found in the whole land of Israel, because the Philistines had said, “Otherwise the Hebrews will make swords or spears!” So all Israel went down to the Philistines to have their plowshares, mattocks, axes, and sickles sharpened…So on the day of battle not a soldier with Saul and Jonathan had a sword or spear in this hand; only Saul and his son Jonathan had them.” Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon also removed all of the craftsmen from Israel during the Babylonian captivity (2 Kings 24:14). Both of these administrations were considered exceedingly wicked including their acts of weapons control.

John Calvin’s comments on this subject.  We do not need to prove that when a good thing is commanded, the evil thing that conflicts with it is forbidden.  There is no one who doesn’t concede this.  That the opposite duties are enjoined when evil things are forbidden will also be willingly admitted in common judgment.  Indeed, it is commonplace that when virtues are commended, their opposing vices are condemned.  But we demand something more than what these phrases commonly signify.  For by the virtue of contrary to the vice, men usually mean abstinence from that vice.  We say that the virtue goes beyond this to contrary duties and deeds.  Therefore in this commandment, “You shall not kill,” men’s common sense will see only that we must abstain from wronging anyone or desiring to do so.  Besides this, it contains, I say, the requirement that we give our neighbor’s life all the help we can … the purpose of the commandment always discloses to us whatever it there enjoins or forbids us to do” (Institutes of the Christian Religion, Vol. 1, Book 2, Chapter viii, Part 9).

As for the pretend pastor, he’s probably unreachable with logic or the Scriptures.  But I do have a suggestion for his wife or any future wife for the sake of his marriage.  He needs to have a serious conversation with her and explain that he will in no wise ever defend her or protect her, or her children, from predators, kidnappers, murderers, rapists or other people intent on doing them harm.  She just needs to understand that’s how he interprets the Bible.  As for the her and the kids?  Eh, they just need to turn the other cheek so he can claim to be holier than thou.

Pastor, please let me know how that conversation goes.

If in fact he is persuaded by any of this commentary and wants to become a man, there are ways to do just that (courtesy of WiscoDave).
