Because the coercive leadership is incapable of relating to the plight of people or worse, the coercive leadership knows the suffering but just chooses to not feel the pain, the economic situation is going to deepen in severity and last much longer than it otherwise would.

There is no sense of emergency. Where are the first responders and the follow-on crews? Why are the people again being left to drown just as in New Orleans during and after Hurricane Katrina?

Fight Against Laissez-Faire Slavery

The fight is waged between those who demand self-sufficiency in this completely networked and artificial environment and those who know better that I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours. (John 4:38 KJVR). Who among the enemies of the sons and daughters of light is truly self-sufficient? Who buys nothing? Who sells nothing? Who scratches out a living solely from the land without the aid of anyone else? Who uses no public property? Who uses no private property of others? The man in the wilderness who never comes in from there and took nothing with him and has accepted nothing from outside qualifies to a point. As a real Christian, I must add that, that man is still not self-sufficient, because he did not create that wilderness. It was supplied by someone (or if one isn't given to understand that, then something) else. Self-sufficiency doesn't exist for human beings on this planet who are not one with God.

The problem is that the people in general (there are amazing exceptions) are numb to each other. In the main, there is a huge deficit of feelings during supposed calmer times. Many respond during emergencies only. Many never feel that there is anything wrong or anything requiring emergency attention verging on the frantic until the specific type of problem hits home. Then, the disease or whatever becomes the pet charity if at all. That's the wrong approach. That's piecemeal and myopic and conducive only to the continuation of such numbness in perpetuity.

The battle is between light and dark, truth and falsity, the right kind of love and the wrong kind of hate.

Selfishness caused the current recession/depression. Cure the disease of selfishness, get it out of every heart, and the whole of existence will heal. Work cooperatively rather than competitively.


The following should appear at the end of every post:

According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":

Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.

Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.

Political Campaign Intervention

Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.

Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.

Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:

  • Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
  • Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
  • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
  • Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
  • Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office

Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:

  • The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
  • Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
  • We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
  • When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
  • It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
  • We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
  • We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
  • When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
  • We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
  • It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
