Religious beliefs and obedience to "Caesar."
The God of the Bible brought forth this great nation according to His will. It is He that provides us our inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and all other human lawful rights. NO government provides these rights for any sovereign human being. Government is created to PROTECT such rights. The People of this Republic originally agreed to, and by mutual agreement and understanding, all people still agree to, this Constitution which allows the People to rule themselves, through a limited government, as sovereign human beings, under God's sovereignty. This is the system which God allowed us to create and implement. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land, under the Supreme law of God.
Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.
God created man, provided him authority over the Earth, (but NOT unlawful authority over each other), and gave them free will...
Deut 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life , that both you and your seed may live:
God established free will for mankind, which we may exercise, legally, within His laws and commands.
Josh 24:15 And if it seem evil to you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
The creation of thousands of statutory laws is simply an attempt to take power from people, remove free will, and to "legislate" manipulated character through mindless responses to these "laws." This is completely counter to God's will for mankind. The entire purpose for mankind's creation is to build godly character through personal choice of right over wrong, cause and effect results, and growth. The creation of the stifling, burdensome statutory legal system is an evil, ungodly agenda.
Christ spoke words that are fitting as warning for all of our government leaders today:
Matt 23:1 Then spoke Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees (politicians) sit in Moses' seat: (have Constitutional authority as leaders in America).
3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; (as long as it is legal) but do not you after their works: for they say, and do not.
4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, (Thousands of statutes and laws) and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. (How many politicians seem "above the law?" How many hold Americans to the letter, the countless statutes and insane laws, but escape from those same laws?).
5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: (Great swelling words, and show) they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, (Look sharp and promote a facade to gain popularity).
6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, (full of vanity, pride, ego and self-righteousness).
7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. ("Senator, Senator, "congressman, congresswoman, Mr. President...).
11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. (Public "servants"... not public slave masters).
12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. (This WILL occur).
14 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, (politicians-government) hypocrites! for you devour widows' houses, and for a pretence (deceit) make long prayer: (Speeches) therefore you shall receive the greater damnation.
15 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, (politicians-government) hypocrites! For you compass sea and land to make one proselyte, (Republican or Democrat... follower) and when he is made, you make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
16 Woe to you, you blind guides... (politicians-government)
17 You fools and blind... (politicians-government)
23 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, (politicians-government) hypocrites! for you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, (focus on the smallest letter of the (legal) law on American's heads...) and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, (right, legal, Constitutional judgment) mercy, and faith: these ought you to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
24 You blind guides, (politicians-government) which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
25 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, (politicians-government) hypocrites! for you make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. (Look good, sound good, show themselves as being good leaders standing for truth, but are dead leaders).
26 You blind Pharisee, (politicians-government) cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, (politicians-government) hypocrites! for you are like whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous ("I'm defending the freedoms and Constitution of the American People..." while lying and serving self) to men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
32 Fill you up then the measure of your fathers. (Continue on in the deceit and lies of those politicians who came before you).
33 You serpents, you generation of vipers, (politicians-government) how can you escape the damnation of hell? (You won't unless you change...).
34 Wherefore, behold, I send to you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: (American People standing for truth and freedoms and the Constitution) and some of them you shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall you scourge in your synagogues, (Courts) and persecute them from city to city: (Illegal and unconstitutional tactics of IRS, FBI, CIA, SS, government agendas, causing good people to go to jail...government leaders having little or no conscience, seared minds and hearts, devoid of truth, greedy, selfish and corrupt...).
35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, ... (Justice will be had on all who suppress the truth...).
Rom 1:18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness,
The Constitution is THE supreme law of the land which all Americans have accepted and support. This Constitution was created with the Common Law of England in mind, which is, in affect, based on the laws of God...
Rom 13:1 Everyone must submit himself to the (righteous) governing authorities, (Constitution) for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, he who rebels against the (righteous) authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
Luke 6:31 And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise.
Mark 12:30 And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these."
If I am to obey these commands, I MUST obey the supreme law of the land, the Constitution of the United States of America... the republic of 50 sovereign states, OVER any contrary laws or statutes that men may create otherwise. The IR Code and many other de facto government and de facto State government statutory laws and agendas are being implemented contrary to the Constitution, and therefore null and void, ( "...all laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void' (Marbury v Madison, 5 US 1803 (2 Cranch) 137, 174, 170 and NORTON v. SHELBY COUNTY, 118 U.S. 425 (1886), and to submit to these against the Constitution is breaking God's law, supporting a system which harms my fellow man, and is NOT showing love to them.
I am actually breaking the supreme law of the land by conforming to statutory laws which are repugnant to the Constitution, and to the laws of God. To be forced to conform to statutory laws repugnant to the Constitution is violating my sovereign right to practice my religion as I see fit, and is committing (forced-coercion) treason against my country.
Rom 13:7 Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.
Matt 22:21 Render therefore to Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and to God the things that are God's.
Income taxes being collected to date, NOT provided for in the Constitution, are NOT "Caesars," or the government's money, it is mine, unless the Constitution says it is not mine. The Constitution does NOT, therefore, I retain my right to hold that which is legally and Constitutionally mine, and all other rights as well.
If I "render" income taxes, or any other "right," to whom it is NOT due, and counter to the Constitution, I am breaking the law of God, unless I willing and knowingly agree to pay this money for a greater cause, and NOT under duress or coercion but with full knowledge of the agreement. To be supporting such a system which obtains money through fraud, deceit, lies, cheating, theft and other evil methods, and said system then USES that money for evil, ungodly purposes such as unjust and unconstitutional wars of aggression, and many other unconstitutional agendas which harm freedoms and American sovereignty, is to support the agenda of Satan and the creation of his one world government and new world order as clearly described in bible prophecy, brought about by those who serve him through these devices.
2 Cor 2:11 ... for we are not ignorant of his (Satan) devices .
To surrender sovereign, God given and Constitutional rights is a threat to religious freedom and a threat to my supreme belief in the kingdom of God and its laws, and inhibits the education of humanity on the supreme plan of God. Freedom was provided by God to ALL humanity. Anything which takes freedoms away, contrary to the laws of God and the Constitution, is a threat to all humanity, which I must resist. I am commanded to reveal such works of darkness... expose them for all to see.
The "Rule of Law" is meant to provide a guideline for society to interact. Law governs all things in nature, and even governs thought and actions. If laws conflict with other laws, we have confusion. The Constitution is THE law of the land (under God's Law) and all other laws serve it or they are null and void and have NO power over the People.
