The System of Man


Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,
Lord, don't they help themselves, oh.
But when the taxman comes to the door,
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale

They take a few hundred rich people, mostly white men, and they gather them together. They all take sides and reveal a literal disdain for each other. They are paid handsomely, they dine at the finest restaurants, they fly all over, and they enjoy much vacation time. They talk and talk and talk. And it is these people the country trusts to make decisions that will benefit us, the proletariat. And they spend and spend and spend and send people off to war and vote themselves raises whenever they can. The fringe benefits are incredible. There is always lying, manipulation, hatred, and much sexual immorality on the side.

Wrap it all up and they call that representative government, or democracy. But the only pure government is the one that is upon His shoulders. That government is on its way, but until then people will have to support which ever side suits them and deceive themselves into thinking human beings really do represent them. You will have to forgive me because I cannot bring myself to lend one ounce to that kind of system. I know too much about that system, and I know too much about God’s Word.

Jesus is Lord and there cannot be any vice-lords.

Pastor Rick,

No forgiveness needed. Amen, and Amen.

Probably all the American Church' spiritual problems trace back to its ignorance of what "the Kingdom of God" is, and what it entails.

Strange that our greatest ignorance is about what Jesus said we should seek first.

In Jesus, Steve
