Using freedom to threaten freedom

There is a commercial “authorized and approved” by Mike Bloomberg that shows the immediate past president and him together in various scenes, while the former president is talking about how “Mike” gets things done. All the while these scenes are showing, there is a very subliminal backdrop. It shows Bloomberg at a UN conference on Climate Change. Another is a Bloomberg rally to make guns illegal. Bloomberg is a very dangerous man to a free society. Look at his efforts in Virginia to ban guns and criminalize law-abiding gun owners. His entire tyrannical campaign is centered around using He his freedom, to extinguish everyone else’s freedom.

Socialists like Bloomberg are trying to place a death grip on our free society. Christians must stand otherwise freedom will cease to exist. “Freedom sees in religion the companion of its struggles and its triumphs, the cradle of its infancy, the divine source of its rights. It considers religion as the safeguard of mores; and mores as the guarantee of laws and the pledge of its own duration.”–these are the words of Alexis de Tocqueville, a French aristocrat who came to America in the 1830s to observe what made the country so great. His “Democracy in America” is considered a historic treasure about the unique success of the United States. Tocqueville wrote that America is free because of its collective Christian religion.

He pointed out that the laws that governed the Plymouth colony were derived from the Hebrew texts. In the later 1600s, even the law of Connecticut stated that man shall not “have or worship any other God, but the Lord God.” He said that Americans “have succeeded in incorporating somehow into one another and combining marvelously…the spirit of religion and the spirit of freedom.” According to the laws and the nature of early Americans, men and women who have the religious and political beliefs of most of our current leadership would have been forbidden to serve in such capacity, if not tried and convicted as criminal for their immorality and corruption.

Cotton Mather wrote in 1820, “There is a liberty of corrupt nature, which is affected both by men and beasts, to do what they list; and this liberty is inconsistent with authority, impatient of all restraint; by this liberty we are all inferior;  ‘tis the grand enemy of truth and peace, and all the ordinances of God are bent against it. But there is a civil, a moral, a federal liberty, which is the proper end and object of authority; it is a liberty for that only which is just and good; for this liberty you are to stand with the hazard of your very lives.” Galatians 5:1 says, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” As Christians, we must demand and accept no other form of liberty.
