How YOU can avoid being duped by . . .
in All of Human History
|Lyndon Johnson told America that the North Vietnamese had attacked us in the
Gulf of Tonkin. He
lied. As a result, tens of thousands of Americans and millions of Vietnamese
lost their lives in a no-win war.
Bill Clinton told America that he "did not have sexual relations with that woman." Tens of thousands of children who (a generation ago) would have dreamed of being President have now turned to experimenting with oral sex.
Other big government lies:
Behind all these lies -- all the buildings destroyed by terrorists, all the lives lost in senseless wars, all the new taxes taken from your paycheck, and all the decline in America's greatness -- is The Biggest Government Lie of All Time.
And like most Americans, you probably believe it.
The Big Lie is an on-going lie.
Because of The Big Lie, University of Hawaii Political Science Professor Rudolph J. Rummel has calculated that on the average day, every single day during the 20th century, thousands of people have been murdered by governments -- per day. His book is called Death by Government.
Because of The Big Lie, not just millions, not just billions, but trillions of dollars in private property have been stolen by governments.
Because of this lie, billions of people around the world have been denied "the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them" (Declaration of Independence, 1776).
The Big Lie has taken many forms in history. Centuries ago, people believed in "The Divine Right of Kings." This is the belief that the legitimacy of nothing the king does can be questioned. This belief was overthrown and replaced with the doctrine of "The Consent of the Governed," which means that nothing the king does is legitimate unless the people consent to it. It seems like "The Consent of the Governed" is the exact opposite of "The Divine Right of Kings," and many people believe that because their government proclaims "The Consent of the Governed" they are more free than ever before.
And yet, people who believe in "The Consent of the Governed" still believe The Big Lie. And modern governments are without question more centralized and far more powerful than kings of old could have even dreamed.
I'm sure you believe in human rights, the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God, and you agree that in many ways government is out of control. But I'm afraid if I were to tell you what The Big Lie is, you would say, "Wait a minute, that's no lie, that's true!" So I can't tell you what The Big Lie is just yet.
First I must tell you something Jesus said.
Three of the four Gospels record the disciples arguing among themselves over who would be the greatest in the Kingdom. Here's how Jesus responded to their squabbling, first from Luke:
24 Also a dispute arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest. 25 Jesus said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. 26 But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who leads like the one who serves.
One expression of The Big Lie is that kings benefit society -- "benefactors."
Another expression of The Big Lie is that it is OK for some people to steal from others -- in order to kill others.
Jesus says His followers (those who use His Name by calling themselves "Christians") are to serve. At the very least, being a "servant" of others means not killing others. It means not stealing from others. (Duh.)
But serving others -- being a Christian -- means more than just refraining from killing and stealing from others. Here are some of the character traits of a follower of the Babe born on that first Christmas:
Most people today give little thought to developing good Christian character. Or continually developing more good Christian character. It is far more common in our day to hear people talking about "Looking out for #1" than about giving their lives for others . . . .
. . . . unless "giving your life for others"
The only virtue taught by those who propagate The
is the "virtue" of believing The Big Lie
and being willing to die for it.
Or kill for it.
This virtue is sometimes called "patriotism."
Being like Jesus is of great benefit to those around us. A society in which Christian virtues are taught and practiced will be the most prosperous in the world. Here's what America's Founding Fathers said about virtue. Many examples of how service creates an orderly and prosperous society can be found here.
So what is The Big Lie? Let's look at how Mark recorded Jesus' words:
42 But Jesus called them to Him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:
44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
The English word "rule" is a translation of the Greek word archein, the Greek word behind the English word "anarchist." Jesus says His disciples are not to be archists, which is to say, they are to be "an-archists."
Now you're ready to hear The Big Lie, stated in its most basic -- and most controversial -- form:
(And controversy, by the way, is not always a bad thing. Jesus was less of a "teacher" and more of a "controversialist." If you think something is "controversial" it's because it strikes at something you believe with some passion. If you believe something with some passion you're more likely to think about it with more brain cells than if it were something you don't care about. So get ready for some controversy: Jesus says what you are about to read is a lie:)
"Jesus says that's a lie?" you ask.
"You're saying anarchists are good??"
Yes, true anarchists are not violent, evil, and dangerous people. Anarchists like Jesus are good. That statement above is a lie, and if you think about it, and understand why it is a lie, you will understand the Bible better than you ever have. You will understand what it means to be a Christian more thoroughly than you ever have.
And you will understand why Jesus Christ was executed by the Government.
Jesus commanded His disciples to be virtuous "anarchists." Servant anarchists. Look at Mark 10:42 above one more time. He said we are NOT to be "archists." That's the Greek word used in Mark's Gospel, and it's the Greek word from which our English word "anarchist" is derived. Anarchist. Not an archist. An-archist.
An "archist" is someone who resorts to force and violence to overcome life's frustrations. But more importantly, an "archist" claims the right to use violence against others, and often claims that such violence "is for your own good." The archist claims to be society's "benefactor."
And an "archist" spreads The Big Lie.
America's doctrine of "the consent of the governed" represented only a partial attack on the doctrine of "the divine right of kings," which might also be called "the divine right of archists." "Consent of the governed" only means "consent of some of the governed," and assumes the right of some to govern, which is the right of some to be archists.
Christ's Disciples were often afflicted by the temptation to be archists. They wanted Jesus to use violence against the Romans, who had invaded Israel and held Israel under military occupation. Many Jews believed the coming Messiah would defeat the Romans in a stunning military battle and then rule over them from a throne in Jerusalem, and the Messiah's saints would be little archists who had the power to punish and oppress the Romans, just as the Romans had oppressed the Jews.
Jesus was not the Messiah they hoped for.
Jesus spoke out in no uncertain terms against "archism."
Sooner or later, every Christian who reads the Gospels asks, " Why was Jesus executed? Wasn't He "the Great Teacher?" Why would anyone want to execute the author of so many inspiring Hallmark™ Cards? Besides, didn't Jesus tell His followers to pay their taxes? What possible reason could the government have had for treating Jesus like a criminal? In the face of "the Zealots," a popular political group bent on overthrowing the empire by force and violence, Jesus even said "Put your sword back in its place, for all who draw the sword will die by the sword." (Matthew 26:51-52).
Wouldn't the government be happy if everyone was willing to pay their taxes, obey the soldiers, and put away weapons of revolution?
No. The Government will not be happy until you believe The Big Lie.
But Jesus told us not to believe The Big Lie.
We've been trained to believe that "archists" are good (though we never use that word) and "anarchists" are bad.
Archists want you to believe that "Anarchists are violent, evil, and dangerous people."
Archists want you to believe that archists are peacemakers, virtuous, and by their decrees and regulations ensure justice and prosperity for all.
But Jesus says a true "anarchist" is a servant like Christ, and Jesus said His followers are "not to be archists."
"Anarchist" means "not an archist."
Therefore those who follow Christ must be anarchists.
But this absolutely, positively does not mean that Christians are to be violent, evil, and dangerous people.
This is the irony of The Big Lie. Do you think of Jesus and perfect morality when you think of an "Anarchist?" No, you think of an immoral bomb-throwing assassin when you hear "anarchist." When we think of the word "anarchist," we have been trained by The Big Lie to think of the exact opposite of everything Jesus commanded His disciples to be.
And by thinking that anarchists are bad, you're implicitly thinking that archists are good.
Jesus clearly tells us not to be "archists." He commands us to be "servants," and this Christlike servant is Jesus' definition of an "anarchist," because Jesus says an "archist" is not a good thing to be.
But the archists in government want us to believe that archists are good.
Jesus says the exact opposite.
Jesus says archists are bad.
Don't be like them, He says.
Therefore we are commanded to be "anarchists."
You're still not convinced:
Does this mean Christians are to bomb federal buildings and assassinate leaders?
No, No, NO! Absolutely not. For these are precisely the things that archists do! Archists have bombed more federal buildings and assassinated more leaders than all the so-called "anarchists" combined. Bombing and assassinating is the complete opposite of being a Christian servant. Taking vengeance, stealing from others, and killing others -- and claiming the right to do so -- is exactly what it means to be an "archist."
Jesus says we are not to be archists.
All your life you've been told that anarchists are bad.
I'm repeating the truth over and over, hoping it will take root. Be prepared for more repetition:
Jesus says "archists" are bad. Don't be like them, He says.
"The measure of the state's success is that
the word anarchy frightens people,
while the word State does not."
~ Joseph Sobran
Here's another way to state The Big Lie:
When your mother told you this, she was subtly commanding you not to be a criminal. And she wasn't lying: it's bad to be a criminal, to steal and hurt people.
As a matter of fact, however, crime does pay -- for archists.
Archists live in luxury compared to the rest of us. Their salaries are higher, their perks are more plentiful, their pensions are many times greater than what they promise us for "social security." But archists live by committing crimes.
In order to keep their jobs or their present salaries, archists don't have to work harder, produce more, or benefit the consumer.
Archists just take what they want by force.
From you and from your neighbor.
And they use these stolen funds to kill, kidnap, and steal some more.
The crimes committed by those who are falsely called "anarchists" cannot come close in number or intensity to the crimes committed by "archists."
"Archists" have confiscated hundreds of billions of dollars in private property in recent years, have murdered hundreds of millions, and have deprived billions of people -- literally, billions -- of liberty. And much of this has been funded or protected by the productivity of Americans. "Your tax dollars at work."
"Crime doesn't pay" is a lie when it is propagated by archists, because they want you to think that they are protecting you from criminals. All the while, archists are committing crimes against you on a scale thousands of times greater than so-called "anarchists."
Virtuous anarchists - like Jesus - are not a threat to order and productivity. It is "archists" -- who claim to represent "the People," or "law and order" -- who are the greatest threat to God's Law and Christian order.
Another word for archists: socialists.
Another word for anarchism: capitalism.
This is the great hidden lesson of the 20th century. Socialism means coercion, theft, poverty and violence -- archism. Capitalism means peace, freedom, and prosperity by meeting the needs of others. Read more here.
What's wrong with socialism? Archism.
What makes capitalism succeed? Anarchism -- the willingness to be like Jesus and serve others. The willingness to depend on persuasion and service, rather than coercion and force.
Martin Luther, who lit the fuse of the Protestant Reformation, wrote:
If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the Word of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Him. Where the battle rages there the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battle front besides, is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point. (Luther's Works. Weimar Edition. Briefwechsel [Correspondence], vol. 3, pp. 81f.)
Do you know where the battle is raging in our day?
It is the meaning of the word "anarchist."
It is the hidden character of the "archist."
It is the conflict between anarcho-capitalism and archo-socialism.
It is the battle for your allegiance.
As we begin the 21st century, we look back on the most violent, barbaric, atheistic and lawless century in human history. Over the last few years in America, over 10,000 people have been murdered each year without government approval. But over the last 100 years, across the globe, an average of 10,000 people per day have been murdered with government approval. Each of these governments claims to be better than the others, but they are all part of the same ideology, the same "New World Order."
Ten thousand government-approved executions require thousands of executioners; thousands of ordinary people just like you who say "I need to feed my family," who are willing to kill simply because the State orders them to, pays them to, or allows them to. When your boss orders you to remove a Christmas decoration from your office cubicle because it is "religious," your boss demonstrates the same lack of virtue that eventually matures into audits, harassments, confiscations, and executions.
"I was just following orders."
That figure -- 10,000 murders per day -- would be much larger if we included all abortions. There are 4,000 abortions a day in the United States, 8 times more in the "former" Soviet Union, and an unknown number in China, where forced abortions are government policy. Genocide is the centerpiece of the New World Order, whose intelligentsia believe that 15,000 people must be put to death every hour in the 21st century.
What will you say when your tender-aged grandchild asks, "What did you do to stop the killing, grandpa?
You will not have an answer if you spent your life believing The Big Lie. You'll have no message for the next generation if you haven't spent years diligently seeking the Kingdom of God, and opposing the lies of archists. When the government orders you to kill your "surplus" children, you will comply. And when the government orders your adult grandchildren to put you to sleep because you are a drain on our national healthcare system, your grandchildren will follow in your steps.
Archists tell you they are protecting us from bad people like "anarchists," and "saving capitalism from itself," and therefore they are not just a "necessary evil," but a positive good, a social "benefactor."
And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.
2 Corinthians 11:14
America's Founding Fathers risked everything to fight a tax that scholars estimate at 3-5%, a tax that was paid to an openly Christian and relatively non-interventionist Great Britain. Today we pay ten times more to a genocidal homosexual New World Order, ten times more than Americans risked their lives to fight in 1776.
Yesterday, Americans had virtue.
Today, we can't put down the remote control.
Great Americans like Jefferson, Madison, and Washington would not be silent in our day.
But they might be in jail.
Does Christian virtue mean pulling out a gun and nailing an IRS agent?
Frankly, I don't think so. I don't think the American Revolution can be Biblically justified. But I also don't think that taxation can be justified -- not if you study the implications of the Eighth Commandment, "Thou shalt not steal."
Jesus told us to pay our taxes. But He also said "Thou shalt not steal," and the Empire eventually executed Him as an anarchist.
