When Pawns had Rights
Rush, I feel your pain in having to explain “rights” as it pertains to individual sovereignty.
The only God given “right” is life. God’s covenant to all who believe in Him is to protect those precious souls, whether yours or someone else.
Humanity’s attempt to interdict in God’s proprietary affairs is nothing new. Even as humanity repeatedly changes historical perspective and propaganda through wars, rebellion, revolution and holocaust, history has continually failed to dominate against the absolute will of God.
What is a “Last Will and Testament”? The word, “Will” is your legal and rightful expression, that upon death, your wish to disseminate your earthly estate/possessions is honored. If humanity had it way, this expression of “Last Will and Testament” would be illegal and prohibitive because all possessions automatically revert back to the State.
Then “Liberty” as written as a Constitutional guarantee that “your” right, as per Last Will and Testament will be honored. Just as Liberty is a Constitutional guarantee, the word “freedom” is the muscle/force behind that guarantee which gives breath to all of God given blessings.
Do I approve of what’s happening in Egypt? In humanity’s futility to dominate, the only guaranteed “right” that exists in Egypt is “the right to kill”.
Lets explore his.
Dateline: The Battle of Crecy 1346. This was the first European battle where gunpowder and cannon beat back the French Chivalry of Knighthood. Wealthy French knights were beaten by English pawns with crude guns and cannons (helped with the long bow). Even as death and killings occurred on both sides, humanity would rather celebrate the common pawn on the battlefield, but fail to mention the crushing oppression in which those same pawns suffered under English rule.
Then, do I have the right to live? Not according to humanity because “a life too long creates history, where history presumes humanity’s innocence or guilt.” Then what is the Bible? A divine contrast between God’s blessings of life and humanity’s preoccupation with death.
Is there a difference between, a “right” to live and an entitlement to live? Oh, Yes! A right must be enforced by your desire to live or to protect someone weaker, but an entitlement at life only proves the point that pawns are expendable.
Do I have the right to kill? Not according to God. Only God can issue that command as He commanded David, Gideon, Joshua and Israel at large to protect “His Chosen People.”
Then who can I kill? No One, if killing is for killing’s sake. It is not who I can kill, but who can I keep from being killed. To save a life is to preserve life and to honor God. No individual conscience kills unless told by either humanity, principality or municipalities. Then humanity is driven by politics, and politics kills out of convenience to satisfy humanity’s hypocrisy. Yes. I can kill politics because politics has no conscience, unlike individuals indentured by politics only to be exploited pawns later on.
America graciously embraced and gave sanctuary to all those who escaped tyranny, yet tyranny still demands its futile sacrifice of in-consequence.
HLS Janet Napolitano does not represent God, but expend-ability. Eric Holder does not represent God, but tyranny’s hold on exploitation and death. Obama’s inhumanity is to dishonor God in favor of evil‘s march of death.
My "right" is to defeat all things evil in the sight of God, whether it political, principality or municipality. In God’s eyes, a rebuke against evil is a mission in itself where all that is evil is purged from His sight. The Evil that ravages the streets of Egypt can kill for its own reward, but as God’s children stand in His Grace, we stand on Holy Ground. And Holy it will remain.
I rebuke the evil that is Obama's tyranny and all who stand with him. Tyranny by any other word is evil.
