Be the Network

Apathy is the Ally of Tyranny.

Albert Einstein understood that "The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it."

The early Church formed a Living Network of people across the Roman Empire and beyond. Rome was no longer a republic. Christ had brought something new for those who would hear His message. In Gibbon’s “Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire,” he praised “the union and discipline of the Christian republic.”

In the hard times that came during the failure and fall of the Empire of Rome Christians not only survived but thrived as a people because they had learned the "mysteries of the kingdom of God".

  • "And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand." Luke 8:10,  Matthew 13:11, Mark 4:11  

When the people lacked forgiveness and charity or through apathy faltered in the Christian community the Ministers were to rebuke and provoke them to gather together again.

  •  "And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:" Hebrews 10:24

The Kingdom of God was the right to be ruled by God but for that society to function "in the world but not of it", it was required that diligent souls who sought the righteousness of God loved God and their neighbor as themselves and actually gathered and worked together.

The modern Church has not only preached a watered down "Gospel of the Kingdom" but it has become impotent as it neglects its duties and lulls the people into apathy and sloth.

God has a plan, a divine strategy, that he offered to the world sealed in the blood of Christ.

  • "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16 

It has always been God's plan to set men free in Spirit and in truth, but an apathetic belief is devoid of the love of Christ.

  •  "If ye love me, keep my commandments." John 14:15

The Kingdom of God is not about your denomination. It is about Christ and His Way.

If you are not actively loving your neighbor as much as you love yourself then how can you claim to be real congregations of Christ? Even your local church groups must love other groups as much as they do themselves.

  •  "Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another." 1 John 4:11

The Gospel of the kingdom taught men and women how to live by faith, hope and charity and the perfect law of liberty. Is that what your church is teaching you?

  • "Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit." 1 John 4:13

We must be doers and if Christ is with us we will be doers together.

  •  "I have a very strong feeling that the opposite of love is not hate -- it's apathy." Leo Buscaglia

Apathy and love are not compatible. 
If the Spirit of Christ lives in us can apathy exist in our life?

Even Aldous Huxley could see that "Most human beings have an infinite capacity for taking things for granted."

We cannot afford such selfish extravagance. Apathy is a disease of the heart and Christ is the cure.

  • "Apathy can be overcome by enthusiasm, and enthusiasm can only be aroused by two things: first, an ideal, with takes the imagination by storm, and second, a definite intelligible plan for carrying that ideal into practice." Arnold Toynbee

Christ is the plan.
You need His Way to take you by storm.

Tyrants are not the problem. Tyrants are only the symptom.
There has always been an alternative system of self government within our reach, but the knowledge of it has been removed from our books, our schools, and our thinking. Free governments of individual rights are governments of individual responsibility.

Posse Comitatus and Romans 13

After Hurricane Katrina, President Bush called for the weakening of “The Posse Comitatus Act” to allow more federal "control" of emergency situations. But would the elimination of that legislative Act of the United States increase any lawful authority for the federal military to use its power and might to control the population of America?

Does Romans 13 really say all government is established by God?

Romans 13
Almost the entire Bible is about the story of men seeking to be free souls under God. From Cain, to Nimrod, From Pharaoh to Caesar God has been leading people from bondage to liberty, teaching the ways of the perfect laws of liberty. Why does Paul seem to contradict the continuous search for the kingdom of heaven and its righteousness at hand by telling us to remain subject in Romans 13? Or is that what he said?

Examine the truth about Romans 13 with an open mind and set your mind free from the bondage of deception.
